Question What is the best way to talk to our parents marriage Islamic there are Muslims but not practicing.
My brothers and sisters, Allah has created
different people for different roles.
And it is very important to remember the role.
When you are doing Tao, especially with regard to parents and so on.
Allah subhanho wa Taala created the parents for the tarbiyah of the children.
Allah did not create children for the therapy of the parents.
Allah created the parents will therby of the children. Allah created children to serve the parents, Allah did not create parents to serve the children. Today, we live in an upside down world.
We live in an upside down world we have parents who are afraid of their children,
and who spend their whole life serving their children.
And we feel we have we have children who feel that they don't have to do anything to the parents.
So we have the parents is not your job or your career is a parent's job.
Allah subhanaw taala created the wife to obey her husband.
He did not create the husband or the wife.
But you know, and I know
and I know and I know and I know what actually happens
hamdulillah This does not mean that the husband has to be disobedient or somehow you know always in a perpetual state of rebellion against the woman know. If you have a good wife who is among the Alia of Allah, then this is a huge blessing for you. And if you tell you something good hamdulillah listen to that because this is comes to our heart from Allah subhanho wa Taala she's a good woman she is pious is she worship Allah subhanho wa Taala
energy tells you something good by all means listen to her but it's an issue. If it comes push comes to shove and an order is given.
Then the wife cannot order the husband to do something where the husband can order.

So Allah subhanaw taala said the male
the men have been given
authority over the women not otherwise. Now we live in an upside down world so that now what do you do therefore if parents are not practicing Islam and you want to advise them number one, don't advise them.
What you do otherwise, you pray and ask Allah subhana wa Taala to turn their hearts
because the hearts of people are in the control of Allah subhanho wa jal So number one, number one, number two,
you practice Islam completely and fully.
And you do it in the best and most pleasant manner possible. You know, one of the problems with young people who suddenly discover that there are Muslims I mean hamdullah This is a good thing. We have one again Christian we also have BORN AGAIN Muslims so suddenly discovered that now I'm a Muslim I should I should practice Islam. You know in almost invariably The first thing that happens the smile goes from the face.
If you become religious then smiling is haram. As soon as Allison says biting and Sakaba don't worry about that. No problem no smiling haram you cannot buy luxuries but you have to look holy and religious and you know powerful so the first thing that goes on the religious Muslim smile is God does this why it doesn't laugh. And he walks as if he is, you know, some the head of
of the London Abdullah of Saudi Arabia or something, he will walk up when he turns he will turn his whole body like this. You know, he will not turn his head.
Caesar Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala had to send down the Koran to the Sahaba to say leave my Navy alone. He has a private life. If he invites you home for dinner, go eat the dinner and leave. Don't sit there and talk. He invited me for dinner don't go at the time of breakfast and then wait till the dinnertime know

In our in my country they say allow me a key policy This is the police of Allah subhanaw taala
so maintain your social skills, laugh and smile and be pleasant and be good and you let them love you.
And you will find inshallah I have seen case after case after case where one single
son or daughter

And over a period of time they change their entire family not only parents, parents, Uncles aunts, I have known families who were so much in shear you won't believe their families used to go make such down the cover and make top of the cover in Indonesia.
And those same families today Alhamdulillah or

You know what brings tears in the eyes in the night is when you do all this work in the day. And then you stand before Allah subhanaw taala and you say Allah I'm helpless.
I'm helpless. What can I do?

Why? Because you have to do a very big job. We are about to send you something which is very heavy.

To get up in the night is not easy to stand in the night is not easy. We know this. It is very tough, very difficult. But it is the best thing to bring about discipline in your life. And it is the best thing to understand the caliber of
the methodology of how do you give them a design without us that the problem with a lot of us is we don't understand it. So we think leaving our means to go and
announce a fatwa and walk away. No, that's not our Tao is number one to practice Islam ourselves. Number two, to do that in such a beautiful manner that people are attracted to you. Number three is to stand in the night and cry before Allah subhanho wa Taala for the height of the people who you want to give power to.
