00:00:00--> 00:00:01

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah

00:00:05--> 00:00:12

al hamdu. lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala l mursaleen. Allah Allah He was happy as main

00:00:18--> 00:00:24

Alhamdulillah with Allah tala, one of the outcomes of

00:00:25--> 00:00:30

the modern world, and the Muslims in the modern world is that there is a

00:00:31--> 00:01:23

great resurgence of interest in Islam, or practicing Islam or leaving Islam. And more importantly, and most importantly, of conveying Islam to the world. There's a great resurgence and a great interest in Dawa of Islam. And Alhamdulillah This is a very good thing because if you look at the reason for the sending of the messenger, the mcsa for the sort of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It was Dara to Islam. De La La Salam was not sent to establish an Islamic State. He was not sent to teach this or that he was sent to convey the message of Islam to the whole world. The Islamic State was a means of doing that GRP Sevilla was a means of doing that. That was not the mcsa

00:01:23--> 00:01:38

he was sent. He was not sent to conquer territory. He was not sent to fight wars, he was not sent for any of those reasons, he was sent to convey the message of Allah subhanaw taala to the or to all of mankind. And all of these things which he did was a means by which this message was conveyed.

00:01:40--> 00:02:06

We know from the holy service Allah Allah, Allah which is resided in every Juma where he is reported to have said Alayhi salat wa salam, as the coup de Kitab Allah wa Hyrule howdy howdy mohammadu sallallahu alayhi wa sallahu wa salam o Kamali? salatu wa sallam, he said that the best speech is the book of Allah. And the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:07--> 00:02:20

remind you and myself and that is the topic of today the prophetic method of dour. What was Nebuchadnezzar method for Dawa? Why is it important to understand this one because

00:02:21--> 00:02:26

thou was the reason for the coming out of the Navy Salalah Holly was a vessel

00:02:27--> 00:02:37

and since the Navy was sent for the, for the purpose of Dawa, the Navy was taught how to give Dawa by Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:38--> 00:03:20

and therefore, it is very important for us to see what was this method which was taught by Allah Allah Allah, because that is the only method which has the sanction of divine approval. That is the only method which has the sanction of Allah subhanho wa Taala is approval on it, every other method Alhamdulillah if it is good and if it is haram, there is no problem in using it, but one cannot claim that that method has the sanction of Allah subhanho wa Taala or that that method is superior to the method of Allah subhanho wa Taala has taught the method that Allah subhanaw taala taught Isabella Salah, the best method, Hyrule Howdy, howdy Mohammed inshallah Allah Allah, Allah, the best

00:03:20--> 00:03:28

of guidance is the guidance of Mohammed Salah Salah nobody else's guidance can be superior to the guidance of Allah Allah Allah Azza wa sallam, this is our Akita.

00:03:29--> 00:04:23

So what was the method of Dawa that Allah subhanho wa Taala taught his Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Surah tunnel, Allah subhanaw taala said although Illa severely Arabic bill Hekmati while Mauricio de la Santa Rosa de Lune miletti son in Arab Baka who Allah movie mon Bala LA, WA Ala Moana, Bill Modine, Allah subhanho wa Taala said, invite mankind O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to the way of your rubber to the way of Europe illa cebelia Arabic to the way of your rub, which is Islam. Bill Hekmati. What mores Atul Hashanah bill Hekmati. Well Mauer is at il Hashanah. It is I have said this before in the context of several other eyes of the Quran, that Allah subhanho

00:04:23--> 00:04:36

wa Taala when he mentioned something, the meaning of it is Huck and the methodology in terms of the sequence that is taught is also hoc. It is not accidental.

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

It is not accidental. Allah subhanaw taala could have said Oh Allah sabi Li Rebecca will mariza till Hashanah wobble hikma, Allah could have said this in the other way around, which is invite them with good preaching and argument and with wisdom. Allah did not say that. Allah subhanaw taala said invite them bill hikma

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

Way to wisdom, well and with mores That bill has an mariza is from the root word wide, while he is preaching, why this lecture why this inviting, while his advice, argument and so on and so forth, and more is that is that So, what is Allah saying, invite mankind O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to the way of your rub with wisdom, first requirement is wisdom. The first requirement in the sequence is wisdom. And then and, and with fair preaching, mariza dill Hassan, good preaching good mariza good was

00:05:44--> 00:06:21

home bill Lottie here, son, and if you have to argue with them, and if you have to present an argument, then present it in the best possible way. best possible way, jazz Illuminati, he isn't in the best possible way. And then Allah subhanaw taala is a truly Europe knows best who has gone astray from his paths and he is the he is best aware of those who are guided We ask Allah subhanaw taala to include us among those who are guided and always to keep us on the path that leads to guidance from Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:06:22--> 00:07:03

My brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala taught us how to present Islam. And this is came specifically in relation to people of the book to live in relation to the Jews and the Christians. And of course this ayah as the ayat of the Quran, our our understanding is that the ayah may have come in terms of as Baba noozle with respect to a particular time and place and people, but the lesson of it is applicable across the board. So the ayah came specifically with relation to the giving Dawa to the Jews and the Christians. But the ayah applies generally to giving Dawa to anybody anywhere, at any point in time, whether there are people of the book or not. And Allah subhanho wa

00:07:03--> 00:07:28

Taala as I mentioned, not only did Allah subhanho wa Taala advise and teach w sallallahu Sallam order him to give Dawa Allah subhanho wa Taala taught him how to give Dawa and Allah subhanho wa Taala taught him the sequence in which Dawa is to be given. And what is that sequence number one is hikma wisdom and then after that Merida to Hashanah, the best way of explaining the best examples, the best,

00:07:30--> 00:07:51

putting things in time of context and of time and place and so on and so forth. And then especially Allah subhanaw taala said and argue with the best of o'clock, the loom billet II Eisen, if you have to argue with somebody, if somebody asks you a question, if somebody refutes if somebody denies what you are saying, what do you do?

00:07:53--> 00:08:07

You insult him, you break him up, you will destroy him, you own him, you chase him off? No, no, no, no, you are very sweet with him. You are very kind with him. You argue with him in the best possible manner.

00:08:09--> 00:08:12

Please understand, I'm not saying this is the Kalam of Allah subhanaw taala before you.

00:08:14--> 00:08:30

My brothers and sisters, there is no speech which is more truthful than the speech of Allah, and no advice and no guidance that is better than the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the advice that was given by Allah subhanho wa Taala to his Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose very purpose of existence was dharma.

00:08:32--> 00:08:40

There is not a single instance in the Sharia, where it is permissible to publicly humiliate people in the name of presenting Islam.

00:08:42--> 00:09:04

Please understand very clearly, not one single instance in the entire Sharia in the entire sunline entire Sierra, in any of these of the lives of any of the Sahaba in the south, where anyone publicly humiliated and insulted somebody from another religion in the name of giving Dawa, not one single instance.

00:09:07--> 00:09:18

Even with Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he did not even publicly humiliate and insult the open declared enemies of Islam like Abu Jamal and Abu lahab.

00:09:20--> 00:09:23

Even though he never publicly openly,

00:09:25--> 00:09:31

he never challenged them. He never insulted them. He never humiliated them, even people who are open enemies to Islam.

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

And these people were also not people with the book.

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

On the contrary, he sallallahu Sallam gave specific advice to marginal jabel when he was sending him to Yemen, as the Hardy and the governor and said to him, they are a people of the book. In this case, they were Christians, present the kalama to them present it to them. If they accept

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Please note

00:10:02--> 00:10:15

the translation of the words of the Hadith, he said, present the kalama to them La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah, present the kalama to them. And if they accept, did you say try to force them,

00:10:16--> 00:10:29

no presented to them. If they accept, then invite them to Salah. And if they accept, then direct them to pay zakat, and take it from their rich and give it to their poor.

00:10:31--> 00:10:34

Now understand this, see the beautiful advice

00:10:35--> 00:10:58

about how to give Dawa especially to people of the book to the Jews and the Christians. And as I said, it applies across the board, irrespective of whether their people are the book or not three elements of it, number one, invite them to Islam, with the best of o'clock, making Ikram of them, treating them with honor and being good to them and kind to them.

00:11:01--> 00:11:42

Number two, when you have won their hearts, you invite them to Islam. Number two, when they accept Islam, give them the biggest treasure that Islam has to offer. What is the treasure, a connection with Allah, a Salah, which is a direct connection with Allah, for people who are used to going to priests to confess sins, and to ask for blessings to be told that the one who forgives sins is Allah, Who you can access directly without any intermediaries and that you are closest to him in such de and that you can ask him whatever you want, and he will listen to you and accept your law. This is the most liberating thing in the world.

00:11:43--> 00:11:56

I don't have to go and confess my sins to a priest. I tell the one who knows about it already. And I make Toba and I returned to him. And I asked him for forgiveness. What is more liberating than that?

00:11:57--> 00:12:20

And when they have done these two things, third, he then advised my original Java and said, take from the rich of these people and give it to their own poor. He did not say too much bingeable take it from them and remit it to Medina. He did not say take it from them and send it to Medina as tribute. No. He said take money from the rich people and give it to their boss.

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

What do you take? Nothing.

00:12:25--> 00:12:25

Nothing.

00:12:27--> 00:12:27

Absolutely nothing.

00:12:29--> 00:12:42

imagined the effect of this methodology of Tao of the Quran so soon on the hearts of the people. You don't have to imagine it history is witness for it that Yemen became Muslim. And for 15 centuries thereafter, Yemen remains Muslim today.

00:12:44--> 00:12:44

Alhamdulillah

00:12:46--> 00:13:19

my brothers and sisters, more additonal Jamal viola, who was one of the most competent alama among the Sahaba. He was a young man he was an unsteady, very handsome, one of the favorite students of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was a cannibal. He was the one of the people who recorded the revelation when it came. He was one of the people who recorded the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When he said something, he was handpicked by an abyssal olalia salaam to be the governor and cardi of Yemen.

00:13:22--> 00:14:03

Rasulullah sallallahu his actions were not random. He did not pick wild bingeable because of his desires. I like this fellow send him to Yemen. No, nobody's Allah, Allah is Allah was guided by Allah subhanho wa Taala in all his choices. Then, when he was sending Mad bingeable off, he walked with Him. Imagine this scene. Imagine the scene. marinelle Jamal is riding on his mountain Ibiza. xlm is holding the bridle and he's walking with Maya. Outside of Medina, he's leading the he's leading the mount and he asked what bin Jabal Omar has How will you judge? This is the final exam. This is the final exam where Mark bingeable qualifies or he fails.

00:14:04--> 00:14:41

He has taught him everything and now he's taking the final exam as he's walking he says oh my god, how will you judge marinelle Jamal says I will judge by the book of Allah or messenger of Allah. And if you don't find the answer in there, what will you do? Mark bingeable says I will look for it in the Sunnah of Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and then he said and if you don't find the answer there What will you do? More has been Jamal said I will consult with the people of knowledge and if there is nobody to consult Omar What will you do more have been Java says I will use my own judgment in the light of the book of Allah and the Sunnah of his messengers, Allah Allah

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

Allah He was Abu Salah

00:14:47--> 00:14:52

who is the examiner, Muhammad Rasul Allah, Who is the student, marginal German,

00:14:53--> 00:14:56

the best of examiners of the best of students

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam approved of this methodology and they

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

is the reason why these four principles have since then been the sole the principles on which the Sharia of Islam is based Kitab Allah was student autonomy sallallahu alayhi wasallam is ma well he has the book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Messenger sallallahu Sallam collective opinion of the scholars. And the personal opinion is the heart of someone who is capable of making that is the heart. It's not my opinion, in your opinion, someone who's qualified to make that is the heart. These four things. The reason I'm saying it is that because today many people ask this question, where is it in the Quran?

00:15:44--> 00:15:45

Where is it in the Quran?

00:15:49--> 00:15:56

For a thing to be halal or haram for the thing to be permissible or prohibited in the Sharia it does not need to be in the Quran alone.

00:15:57--> 00:16:01

If it is in any of these four things, it has the same status.

00:16:03--> 00:16:10

And that is the basic rule of the Sharia. I'm not going into the the sort of Sharia here just to make me put a marker there.

00:16:11--> 00:16:22

This Hadith is also is proof that the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam his ideas were compiled and were in a referable form during his own lifetime.

00:16:24--> 00:16:46

And this destroys the false claims of those who claim that they are these were compiled a century or more after he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away the Hadees that Mr. Bahari and Mr. Muslim and Mr. Mohammed and others compiled came from heavies compilations of the Sahaba, which were done during the lifetime of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam with his direct approval.

00:16:48--> 00:16:55

Just think about that, people have limited intelligence, who say that the Hadees were compiled 100 years later or 200 years later,

00:16:57--> 00:17:00

where do you remember how do you find the Hadees? If it was not written in the first place?

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

Was it floating around in the air or what was it it was hanging on some tree?

00:17:06--> 00:17:18

The very fact your statement alone is proof. One of fact that these were related and second that you have made limited intelligence, if you say something was collected, collected, what does it mean?

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

collected means what?

00:17:22--> 00:17:27

means it is there to be collected? Yes. If I tell you collect diamonds in this in this room, can you collect diamonds

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

because I don't know diamonds

00:17:32--> 00:17:36

but if I say collect trophies you know you have plenty of trophies on people's heads you can pick them up.

00:17:37--> 00:17:41

For something to be collected the condition is that it must first be there.

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

So if the ad is not recorded, how are they collected?

00:17:47--> 00:17:54

But this is the issue where the shaitan takes over the mind and leads us ever deeper into more and more confusion.

00:17:55--> 00:18:00

My brothers and sisters, I want you to stay with this hadith of Rasul Allah is Allah solemn?

00:18:02--> 00:18:08

Have what he asked him to do? How did he ask him to present Islam to the Christians of Yemen?

00:18:10--> 00:18:56

In this whole narrative, please notice that Rasool Allah is Allah Sallam did not tell Martindale Jebel who was as a hobby. He was happy to have the Quran. He was comfortable here a quarter of the way and had his he was witness to the Bible knows all of the Quran. He was witness to the circumstances of revelation of the Quran. He was shy Dallas Babu knows all he was among the most competent of the allama among the Sahaba he was one of the most articulate and one of the most powerful speakers. He was one of the most beautiful reciters and Cora of the Quran. And he was the one who had ijazah from Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam to give fatwa during his own lifetime,

00:18:56--> 00:19:18

Mohammed bin Salman was one of the people who was given permission by enemy Salah Salaam to give rulings in his own lifetime. What do you think he was doing when he was sending was kasi to Yama nummies Allah Salam was still alive. He did not save they have a question send it send the question to me and I will answer it he said no. If you have that quiet if you have a question, you answer the question. How would you do that? That is the methodology to be followed my brothers and sisters

00:19:19--> 00:19:41

at no point in time, even though this man was highly, highly competent and capable, at no point in time did Nabi sallallahu Sallam advise or order Medina Jebel to engage the Christian priests and bishops of Yemen in debate and defame them and destroy them and humiliate them in public before their own congregations.

00:19:42--> 00:19:48

This is not because Matt Benjamin was not capable of that. What Benjamin was more than capable of that.

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

But that was not the profiting methodology of Dow

00:19:54--> 00:19:56

Jones. He did not say go there and announce.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

I challenge the Bishop of your man to a debate

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

And destroy the Bishop of Yemen on him. Finish him, humiliate him, make him look like a monkey in front of his congregation

00:20:11--> 00:20:21

did not say that. He did not say that. He never told him that. And this is because Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam understood human psychology a genocide more than we do.

00:20:23--> 00:20:35

And he knew that if you humiliate the leader or representative of a people before those who follow him, that is actually humiliation of all those people. And even the neutral among them

00:20:36--> 00:20:42

will be antagonized to you and to your preaching, and all that you will create his enemies among them.

00:20:45--> 00:21:01

No matter how correct your argument may have been, from your own perspective, the way it was presented was so unsuitable, that the logic and truth of the argument gets lost in the pain experienced by those who are left speechless and inarticulate.

00:21:04--> 00:21:32

If the aim of the argument is to drive the people away, and to antagonize them, and to convert them into ambassadors of ill will, who will not leave a stone unturned to harm you and your message, then public humiliation is indeed the most effective way of achieving this goal. You take away the man's honor, and you leave intact his strength and his resources, and you energize him with one of the most potent of forces, which is anger.

00:21:33--> 00:22:12

And he will now work against you day and night while you are lying in your bed sleeping. And believe me, there will be many who will listen to him, many who are neutral to begin with. When they witness his public humiliation, they become sympathetic to him, and they will feel sorry for him, and they will listen to him and support and they will start supporting him, which they may not have done earlier. So this public humiliation strategy works amazingly well, to strengthen your enemy and to create more and more enemies for your message. But if you use the methodology of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:22:14--> 00:22:14

see what happens?

00:22:16--> 00:22:26

Number one, what is the method six points of the method number one, be good to them smile, be a generous host make friends don't antagonize honor them.

00:22:27--> 00:22:32

The fact that the guy came to you means that he is already halfway in your court.

00:22:34--> 00:22:37

Now, what do you want to do? Chase him away, or bring him fully inside.

00:22:38--> 00:22:46

He's not standing there with a sword to kill you. He wants to listen to you. He asked you a question. Maybe he doesn't know how to ask the question.

00:22:47--> 00:22:52

Maybe it doesn't matter. Many people don't know how to ask a question. I was teaching a course in GE once.

00:22:53--> 00:23:00

And one of the people he I usually I put up a slide of my qualifications and so on first and one guy came late.

00:23:02--> 00:23:03

And suddenly out of the blue.

00:23:04--> 00:23:10

While I'm saying something in mid sentence, he says you'll be stopped. He's a qualification.

00:23:12--> 00:23:13

Now he's like slapping me in the face.

00:23:17--> 00:23:21

Now what do I tell him? So you will go crazy or what? You know, ask me a qualification. What do you think I'm doing here?

00:23:23--> 00:23:26

I did not say anything. I took a nice deep breath.

00:23:27--> 00:23:43

And then I said, I put the slide back on again. And I said this is these are my qualifications. This slide was up a few minutes ago. Now I looked at it. He was at peace. And in the interval he came and apologized to me. He said I'm very sorry, I asked you like that, you know, I suddenly I said something

00:23:47--> 00:23:50

he did he the man did not know how to ask a question. I mean, there is not a crime No.

00:23:52--> 00:24:12

But the fellow was asking. So what is our response to that? What is the methodology of naturalism? Our number one be nice to them to present our heat, don't argue, don't even mention what is their belief? Don't tell them man what what kind of thing is the Jesus Christ is God? How can you be God? bla bla bla, no, no.

00:24:13--> 00:24:21

This is Islam. We worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone we worship with worship the creator of everything, including yourself.

00:24:23--> 00:24:29

Chorus we don't mention Jesus. We don't mention Mozart. We don't want any say we don't measure anybody. Well, the only dimension is

00:24:30--> 00:25:00

if the person what's your belief about Jesus and a solemn peace be upon him? Believe or is Allah is Allah is that he is one of the one of the biggest messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanaw taala honored him he honored his mother Maria Malaya salam, Allah Jesus Li Salah Salam is a miracle of Allah. He is a sign of Allah subhanho wa Taala he and his mother, Maria mother to people about whom Rasul Allah Allah Allah Mohammed Salah Sallam said that they are the only two people in creation who

00:25:00--> 00:25:18

I've never been touched by sha Allah has protected them from birth from Satan. People asked him Yes yaroslava you also ties ideas I was also what Allah subhanaw taala protected me and and kept shaitaan away from me but Maria Allah is Allah mana and her son is Allah Salama never touched by Jetta

00:25:22--> 00:25:23

This is what you say to the Christian.

00:25:25--> 00:25:31

I'm not saying the man will immediately say inshallah, maybe he will but I'm not saying immediately which Allah Allah, Allah, no, but we will become your enemy.

00:25:33--> 00:25:34

We will become your enemy.

00:25:35--> 00:25:40

I mean, who will become an enemy? When you are praising the one he praises

00:25:42--> 00:25:47

you're not praising him to the extent he praises you're not making use of God but you are saying look, this is our opinion.

00:25:48--> 00:25:53

He's Ali salam, we even go to the extent I tell people I say you know we are at a disadvantage right?

00:25:54--> 00:26:16

Because you insell Mohammed Salah Salama, we cannot insell easily Salam we are at a disadvantage I mean, we are a result is a no matter what you say about Mohammed Salah Salam. We can never say anything against these la sala vamos la sala because these are our ambia this is part of our Akita even Muslim says I do not believe in Jesus. He has left Islam not Christianity. He has left Islam.

00:26:17--> 00:26:28

He has left Islam. If a man says I do not believe that easily Salam was a messenger of Allah, he has left Islam is our key that is part of our creed, foundational belief.

00:26:31--> 00:26:40

So what does he say? He's a president of it. Don't argue. Don't argue, don't debate don't just present what your message is.

00:26:41--> 00:26:50

When they accept, give them a gift. Give them a spiritual gift. What is the gift? You accept that Allah is worthy of worship? Right now worship Allah.

00:26:51--> 00:26:58

Why should you worship Allah, talk to Allah man. As I said, so many times, talk to a tell Allah story. ask Allah what you want.

00:27:00--> 00:27:27

Give them a spiritual gift, a Salah, when they start praying, help their rich to feel good, by giving a minuscule amount of their wealth in charity 2.5% of accumulated wealth the Christians come from and they came from the modern Christians don't do that anymore. But even the traditional ones do it now even now, but earlier, they had a system called the teeth, a tooth was one 10th of your income.

00:27:28--> 00:27:44

month on month, day, on day, one 10th of your income went to the church. Now you tell people who are used to giving one 10th of their income to the church. You tell them, you don't have to give anything of your income, no income tax abolished.

00:27:45--> 00:28:01

What is there is spend whatever you want on your family, and so on and so on live well eat well and so on so forth, at the end of 12 months, whatever is left out of that give two and a half percent to the poor.

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

What do you think they will say?

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

What do you think they will say?

00:28:08--> 00:28:09

And

00:28:10--> 00:28:15

what about the poor? Remember, in any society, the majority is always poor.

00:28:16--> 00:28:53

The majority is always poor. Right? Now those poor till today, they never got a cent out of anybody. They had to beg for it. But now the rich man the Lord the bishop and so on so forth, whoever it was, the rich man comes and gives the charity What is the matter of Zakat go and give it yourself. He comes and he gives us money. What do you think the poor man does the poor man the man is poor but he's not poor intelligence? Doesn't he know why the man is coming and giving him doesn't you know how come this thing suddenly started that these guys are coming and giving us money now? They never gave it for generations before? Don't they know why it's happening?

00:28:55--> 00:29:12

What is their what is the poor populations opinion now about their own wealthy people? good opinion. Fantastic. This lot of money was oppressing me till today. Michelle has given me his give me money. Fantastic. So they become popular. The people know exactly why it's happening because of Islam. So Islam spreads

00:29:14--> 00:29:19

and very important. Take nothing for yourself. Take nothing for yourself.

00:29:21--> 00:29:48

What are the benefits of this profiting method of Dawa now brothers and sisters number one, it takes the wind of opposition out of the sails of the people who want to oppose who can be against someone who has a nice smile and he respects and honors you and is kind to you when he feeds you and is generous. So even if you started from the position, these Muslims are nasty, you will start questioning yourself and others will question you having come into contact with a living breathing Muslim.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

Second one presents How he without argument without being defensive without referring to whatever else these people worship. Just tell them. This is

00:30:00--> 00:30:18

Message of your robber to you recite the Quran to them. Don't tell them translation of the Quran in your words, the man came to the man came to listen to the word of Allah. He did not come to listen to your word. He came and said What does your Rob say? He does not see didn't come and ask What do you say?

00:30:19--> 00:30:20

Please understand this very clearly.

00:30:23--> 00:30:30

And this was a matter of a solemn they will come and say, yeah, yeah, Mohammed, what does you're upset and nobody's Allah Allah, Allah Buddha said Quran.

00:30:33--> 00:30:36

The people are asking you what does the rub say? Not what you say.

00:30:38--> 00:30:44

And so why don't I tell you this method works. This method works as it is supposed to work.

00:30:45--> 00:30:54

I was I was giving a lecture in South Africa, to a group of people who are not Muslim. It was a public lecture in Durban.

00:30:55--> 00:30:59

And as part of the lecture, I decided, at the end, I decided the horror of Soto Nava.

00:31:01--> 00:31:05

And there were people sitting there there were Hindus who were Christians sitting there, their tears in their eyes,

00:31:06--> 00:31:21

tears in their eyes. And what and obviously, they didn't understand why I'm really I'm reciting Arabic. They didn't understand what was happening, but they had tears in their eyes. And one of them stood up the man called Logan govender. And Logan said, he said God was in this room just

00:31:25--> 00:31:26

he said, God was in this room. Just

00:31:30--> 00:31:42

please understand, the Kalam of Allah has an effect on the heart of people, because Allah created us and Allah created our hearts, and also created the hearts of the Hindus and the Christians, Sikhs and well.

00:31:44--> 00:31:45

Who are we to deny them?

00:31:46--> 00:31:51

Who are we to deny them? The sound of the word of their

00:31:53--> 00:31:53

right.

00:31:56--> 00:32:02

Not only are we no one to deny them, it is our duty to help them hear that sound.

00:32:04--> 00:32:19

I do this all the time. I tell people just listen to what you're up to saying doesn't matter if you don't understand see how it sounds. And I am so I'm telling you I'm surprised there are so many people who are not Muslim who have never actually heard the recitation of the Quran. Never. We all live in compartments.

00:32:21--> 00:32:27

And even in a completely multicultural society like India, where everything is on a loudspeaker.

00:32:28--> 00:32:30

Most people have not heard

00:32:31--> 00:32:33

what the Quran sounds like.

00:32:34--> 00:32:41

At the most they hear the oven and you know, May Allah forgive us, you know, and what kind of oven normally is given.

00:32:43--> 00:32:44

They never heard the Quran.

00:32:47--> 00:32:57

My brothers and sisters, so present Islam to them. And then as I said, give them the gift of the Salah. And when they have tasted the sweetness of Salah,

00:32:58--> 00:33:06

teach them this method, which will make them powerful and popular among their own people.

00:33:10--> 00:33:14

You know, Sun Tzu, the guy who wrote the Art of War.

00:33:16--> 00:33:26

In the art of war, he writes a wonderful thing. He says, build for your enemy, a bridge of solid gold for him to retreat over.

00:33:29--> 00:33:35

says don't get off his retreat. He said build for him a bridge of solid gold for him to retreat over.

00:33:36--> 00:33:50

He says if you close the door of retreat, even a rat will fight. And he says if you face a fight, nama even if you win the fight, you still suffer. You still use your resources.

00:33:51--> 00:33:55

says what is the point in fighting when there is no need to fight?

00:33:56--> 00:34:00

Sun Tzu says the best general is the one who wins the battle without a fight.

00:34:01--> 00:34:05

This is built for your enemy, a bridge of solid gold to retreat over.

00:34:07--> 00:34:11

That's why I call this I call Dara the force of love.

00:34:12--> 00:34:20

Because what is a greater expression of love than to want eternal happiness for the people you're presenting Islam to?

00:34:23--> 00:34:24

Let me

00:34:27--> 00:34:27

end

00:34:29--> 00:34:37

with a story from the Syrah of the Sahaba of people who practiced this methodology. And the story is the story of

00:34:41--> 00:34:41

one of the

00:34:43--> 00:34:44

greatest

00:34:46--> 00:34:50

of the Sahaba in one image mine Musab bin Omar Mayra Delano

00:34:53--> 00:35:00

Musa baignoire. Raja Ilana was sent by Rasul Isola Salaam to Medina as his ambassador, who was most rbny Musa bin Omar was

00:35:00--> 00:35:12

A very wealthy young man of Medina of koresh. Very handsome, very fashionable, highly fashionable. Most of you know Meyer was the icon of the time people used to say what is he wearing today?

00:35:13--> 00:35:27

He was very fond of perfumes used to wear very expensive perfume and they used to say that it must have been Omar walks down the street. You can go down that street much later and you would know that he's passed this way because the whole atmosphere would be full of his perfume.

00:35:29--> 00:35:35

This highly pampered wealthy young man, accepted Islam.

00:35:38--> 00:35:50

And his mother locked him up in the room. And when he completely refused to give up Islam, she said alright, you can leave, but everything you own belongs to me. So leave it here.

00:35:53--> 00:35:56

As he was leaving, she said, No, no, even the clothes you're wearing belong to me.

00:35:57--> 00:36:02

The degree I take off your clothes. So is that how do I go naked? He said here is a sheet.

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

That was Masahiro Delano.

00:36:08--> 00:36:19

He paid a price. He paid a price for Islam. Musa bin Omar Delano was one of the most beautiful recitals of the Quran. He was one of the most acclaimed reciters of the Quran.

00:36:20--> 00:36:22

Musab miromar went to Medina

00:36:23--> 00:36:34

and the Tao Mousavi Nehemiah was such that most of the vocabulary in most of the big names of the Sahaba of the unser accepted Islam in the hands of Muslim

00:36:37--> 00:36:53

and Muslim ban Omar was martyred in the Battle of of earth. He was the standard bearer or sort of solemn, he was holding the flag of Islam. They chopped his right arm and he held the flag in the left hand the job that he tried to grab the flag with his stumps of his arms and the spirit in from the back and he died.

00:36:54--> 00:37:13

And when they found his body his body was mutilated, was full of wounds. And when they tried to find a coffin, they did not have cloth enough. He was a tall man. He was a very tall very handsome man. They didn't have enough cloth to cover and fully they came nummies rustlers. jasola What do we do, as soon as Allah Sallam said cover his face with a cloth and put some leaves on his feet?

00:37:14--> 00:37:16

This must have been my went to Medina.

00:37:17--> 00:37:27

in Medina, one of the people who accepted Islam came to him and he said, the head of burn house is a man called wired, sad been worth.

00:37:29--> 00:37:45

He is that leader and he is the tribal chief of the bunny house and was up and he said, he said sad Meanwhile, is my cousin. So I can take you into the area of biennials. But if this man accept Islam, believe me, the entire tribe of ours will accept Islam.

00:37:47--> 00:37:52

But he is a very hard man. He said he's a warrior. He's a very harsh very hard man.

00:37:53--> 00:37:54

So Muslim mercy take me.

00:37:55--> 00:38:19

So Musab environ the cousin of Saudi Minamata vilano, they went and he took him into the garden of sod. Meanwhile, they sat under a tree and some other people gathered there. And musashino Meyer was presenting Islam to them, at that time, had been wired was standing far away with another friend of his. And his friend said to him looks like this warmer than his and his messages come into your home.

00:38:21--> 00:38:33

He said that guy sitting there. He is the one who's presenting Islam in Madeira. And looks like he's coming to your house. So that when Martha Delano picked up his spear, and he said he is coming is easier, but not for long.

00:38:35--> 00:38:42

And he came towards Musab Meanwhile, the cousin has had been wired, so I'm coming any nazmul somewhere and he said he's coming.

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

And he doesn't look happy.

00:38:48--> 00:39:03

Sad been what came he jammed a spear in the ground. And he said to his cousin, he said Who is this man? He said, Because you are my cousin, you are under my protection. That is why I am not I am speaking. Otherwise I would not be speaking I would be doing something else.

00:39:06--> 00:39:11

To say now because you're my cousin that hospitality is over here. Now get out and take your friend with you go away.

00:39:15--> 00:39:17

Mr. baignoire delana said to him,

00:39:18--> 00:39:22

he said salam to him. And then he said to him, I will do what you say.

00:39:24--> 00:39:28

But I have one request. He said I have come all the way from Accra.

00:39:29--> 00:39:32

My request is just listen to me for a few minutes.

00:39:34--> 00:39:35

He said what harm can it do?

00:39:36--> 00:39:40

This is your house. You are the chief? What I'm gonna do?

00:39:42--> 00:39:54

Well, well, you know, after all, the out of the hospital people I mean, you know, even even kicking somebody out they didn't do it, you know, nasty. So he said, Well, the man is in my house and what harm can it do to me? He said alright, so tell me what you want. Why don't you sit down.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

So he sat down. He still has the spirit.

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

And it's sitting down

00:40:05--> 00:40:08

and then was Obermeyer.

00:40:10--> 00:40:13

The man who paid the man who paid to learn

00:40:15--> 00:40:22

how we get it for free. So we have no value for it must have been paid for it was a bit

00:40:24--> 00:40:30

sad, been wired, listened and must have been well finished. Sad and masa Tell me what should I do?

00:40:33--> 00:40:41

That's it. So tell me what do I do? He said say eyeshadow Allah Allah illallah wa shawanna Mohammad Rasool Allah,

00:40:42--> 00:40:46

Allah Allah Allah Allah, wa shadow Nava Hamada Rasul Allah.

00:40:48--> 00:40:58

And then savdhan wa got up and he went back to what his friend, his friend says, When Zod was coming back, I knew that the man coming back was not the same man who went there.

00:41:00--> 00:41:12

He said, just looking at him coming back. I knew that this man was different. He had changed. He had changed. It was not the same man coming back. The man who went there was a different man, the man coming back with a different man.

00:41:13--> 00:41:26

Sir, Mr. Rolando called the money house. Now this is sad been more than the chief. He called me he said say eyeshadow La ilaha illallah wa sodwana Muhammad Rasul Allah, this is the this is the chief.

00:41:28--> 00:41:34

He said, say this. And he said the ones who said Good for you, the ones who don't say it, I will not speak to you.

00:41:37--> 00:41:37

Even

00:41:40--> 00:41:45

the recorder of the of the story says that some accepted Islam right there.

00:41:47--> 00:41:54

But he said that that day the sun did not set until the entire tribe of bunny O's had accepted Islam

00:41:55--> 00:41:56

the whole time.

00:41:58--> 00:41:59

every man, woman and child

00:42:00--> 00:42:12

and euro and I know what kind of supporters of rasulillah salam were the bunny house. And we know what kind of support unofficial SLM was added Nevada Delano, and he was martyred in the Battle of kontak.

00:42:15--> 00:42:40

They Imagine if Musab benowa instead of adopting and instead of using the profitec methodology of our our first cram, then presenting Islam, then giving him what giving him a gift. Instead of that if sir if musashino Myra Delano had used argument if he had insulted sad men, if he had tried to to dominate sad Meanwhile, what would have happened

00:42:42--> 00:42:46

what would have happened is very simple. Musab meanwhile would have ceased to exist.

00:42:47--> 00:43:18

Sad been what would have chopped him and that is his country. It is his land he is the king he would have shocked is it. And the burning house would have become the enemies of Islam instead of becoming the greatest supporter of Islam. As simple as that. If the man by one word can convert his whole tribe to Islam, the same man by one word can make the whole tribe an enemy of Islam. He has that power. The people love him, they respect him. If he says do this, they do it. They don't even need a Mousavi neumayer use the Quran zarbin was just ordered. He said Just do it.

00:43:20--> 00:43:26

You understand? You don't understand I don't care do it. He had the he had that moral authority to do that.

00:43:29--> 00:43:38

My brothers and sisters, please understand this very clearly. Two things I want to say before I close. Number one, nobody comes to a debate with the intention of losing.

00:43:40--> 00:43:45

Nobody comes to a debate with the intention of understanding the other person.

00:43:47--> 00:43:53

When you go to a debate, why do you go to dominate the other person to win the debate?

00:43:54--> 00:44:19

No one in the world. Whether it's an allocation debate contest in school, whether it's a public debate on a public platform, whatever it is, whether it's a debate between two friends sitting and talking, nobody goes to a debate with the intention of losing. Nobody goes to a debate with the intention of understanding the other side. You go to the debate only with one one goal and that goal is to win the debate.

00:44:23--> 00:44:24

And what happens

00:44:26--> 00:44:39

what happens is very simple. You can never win debates. I'm talking about Islam. You can never win debates. uh you know Why not? Because if you win the debate, you lost the guy.

00:44:40--> 00:44:45

If you win the debates, you lost him. And if you lost the debate, you lost anyway.

00:44:49--> 00:44:54

My brothers and sisters, I want to end with one simple word.

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

And that is the Dow is the winning of hearts.

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

It's not the winning of debates.

00:45:03--> 00:45:32

Thou is the winning of hearts. It's not the winning of debates. ask Allah Subhana Allah to give us the COVID and the capability of doing that which is pleasing to Him. And of following the sun. Now Muhammad Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to gain from the Baraka of this one, and not to leave the sooner and follow some, you know, cool methodology, which might seem to be cool, but that school methodology can never be superior to the sooner

00:45:33--> 00:46:12

we ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts to his to the son of his messengers are solemn, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts to his to his message, and to make us people who will take this message to the far corners of the world, not simply by talking and arguing, but by our own o'clock by how we behave with people by how we deal with people by lead by allowing and helping people to fall in love with us. People believed in Islam because they fell in love with Mohammed Salah Salim. They believed in Islam because they fell in love with musashino Meyer. They believed they accepted Islam because theirs fell in love with Serbian mud. They didn't fall they didn't

00:46:12--> 00:46:49

accept Islam because they were humiliated and insulted by sad bit more than Musab be annoyed and Muhammad Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, please understand this, leave these methodologies follow the methodology of the sadhana, which is to win hearts of people to win the hearts of people. We were sent into this world to spread goodness all around us. You're not sent into this world to spread antagonism to we're not sent into this world to fight with people. We will not send into this world to argue with people humiliate them and insult them. We were sent to do their Ikram, we were sent to respect them, you were sent to honor them, you were sent to win their hearts. We were sent to make

00:46:49--> 00:47:31

them love us because we love them. While we love every Hindu, we love every sick. We love every Christian, we love every Jew, we love every atheist. We love every Zionist, we love every single person in the world. Why? Because we do not want them to fall into the hellfire. We want them to enter into Jelena B Riley hisab inshallah, and that is why we take the message of Islam to them with love with respect with honor. Not not by insulting and humiliating them. Please understand this, if you find anyone doing that, correct them, tell them this is not the way of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam how do you do this? How do you do this in the name of Islam when it is not the way of

00:47:31--> 00:48:05

Mohammed Salah Salem. Otherwise show me where Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam publicly humiliated a person publicly insulted a person show me and I will come and I will also humiliate and insult but if you cannot show me then listen to what I'm saying. Leave this battle methodology. Leave this false methodology and follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salaam, which is to do the Ikram of people is to love people, respect people, honor people, invite them to Islam in the most beautiful a class is la invite them to Islam in the most beautiful way possible.

00:48:06--> 00:48:24

And if you cannot do that, do yourself a favor, stop doing Dawa. Stop doing our in engage yourself in personally by that pray to God and fast and give charity and make dua for those who want to do our in the way of the prophets Allah Allah Allah use Abu Salah

00:48:26--> 00:48:45

that makes no sense whatsoever because by your method, you are creating problems for everybody in the world. Everybody in the world, the person who you insult, maybe you are so big and powerful that he cannot do something to you. But what does he do? He now goes around maligning Islam and maligning Muslims and he will now try to hurt the Muslim that he can hurt

00:48:47--> 00:48:55

because that one is in his in his control. He can't touch you, but he can touch somebody else. And you are responsible for what is happening.

00:48:56--> 00:49:17

Do not fall into these traps. Where this is not the job of Mohammed Salah Salah is not the Islam of the Kitab of Allah. I decided for you the column of Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala told us how to give Dawa. If Allah told us anywhere in the Quran, insult and humiliate a person in the name of Islam, show me the ayah and I will take off my turban and put it at your feet.

00:49:19--> 00:49:34

And if you cannot show me the ayah then let me show you the and I have showed you the ayah where Allah subhanaw taala said do their Ikram mariza till Hashanah, hikma one mariza till Hashanah, wisdom, be nice to them, be good to them present Islam in the best possible manner, do that.

00:49:37--> 00:49:50

ask Allah subhanaw taala very pleased with us and to forgive our faults and forgive our mistakes and to grant us that which is pleasing to Him and to grant us that which is the best for us was Allah Allah Nabeel Karim Allah Allah He was heavier Jemaine erotica tomorrow me
