Have you heard of or only it's a habit building or an app, unlike anything you've seen before the app tracks your versus pages time and has not gained as well. I've tried to take your Quran reading from inconsistent to finishing it twice a year with the meaning, check out the seven day free trial, download it on the app store now search for unli.

Assalamualaikum, my brother, my sister, you could have learned a lot. How much you are going to teach people depends on your specialization, you may only be teaching one subject, you may be teaching many subjects, you may only be teaching upon entry level basics, you may be going into the details. But you may never ever be teaching every single subject. Remember that. So don't become too proud and arrogant. And don't start thinking this one doesn't know and that one doesn't know. And this one is like this. And I know more and I'm intelligent. And I'm a chef and I'm an alum. And I'm this and that no knowledge belongs to Allah. Yes, make an effort to learn with humbleness and

00:01:10--> 00:01:57

humility, and respecting others, teach them, guide them, speak to them. Don't speak down to them. Speak across Subhanallah address people with utmost respect. Don't try and make it seem like you're the one who knows everything. And nobody else knows anything. And it's just me. Now, it's not just you. To be honest, you could know everything, you could have a lot of knowledge, but maybe Allah did not use you to spread that knowledge because of your arrogance. Maybe Allah has not used you and you might pick it up. And you're busy attacking everyone here and there not realizing that you know what, only 5% of what you've actually learned to the masses probably need immediately. That's

00:01:57--> 00:02:05

something interesting. It's only those who specialize in subjects that would need much more than just the 5%.

00:02:07--> 00:02:14

So if the general masses and the general people what do they need? They need to know who is Allah, they need to know about Allah, they need to know

00:02:15--> 00:02:54

to worship Allah alone. They need to know what the worship is they would have to learn taharah salah, they would need to know what's halal, what's haram, they would have to know rules and regulations. And that's it. But they don't need to go into every nitty gritty of every single subject. They don't need to go into every single verse of the Quran. And it's detailed and in and all the linguistic differences there. So it's important to expand knowledge but not everyone is going to specialize it's not a duty upon everyone to specialize in everything. No. They need to know the basics. The minimum what is called or termed in the Arabic language ma Hua Maluma Mina Dini bit

00:02:54--> 00:03:36

borrower that which is supposed to be known regarding the faith, necessarily? That is something Yes, you need to know. But beyond that, some people will specialize in certain subjects, some in other subjects, don't you think that you are the one who knows it all, and don't despise others? support people, some people, their job is entry level, they will go in and encourage people to do good and discourage them to do bad generally. They're not wrong. They're also fulfilling a duty Unto Allah. They may be doing a good job, who knows. And then there are some who specialize, who might be doing a good job too.

00:03:38--> 00:04:03

But shapen comes to us and makes us fight each other makes us believe that I'm doing something and these guys are doing nothing or my method is the correct method. And these guys method is not the correct method. Unless it's glaring you in the face most probably it's just arrogance and shaytan that's making you think that way. So don't allow that to happen. I know this is a very, very important piece of advice.

00:04:04--> 00:04:12

Take it from me. May Allah subhanho wa Taala use every one of us, Kratos goodness, I mean, a Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
