It is important we develop

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

the outward and the inward.

00:00:04 --> 00:00:07

Many times when people begin to practice after

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

they were not practicing,

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

They become very harsh on others

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

who have not yet seen the light in

00:00:13 --> 00:00:16

the way they have. And the prophet sallallahu

00:00:16 --> 00:00:18

alaihi wasallam being told about how to speak

00:00:18 --> 00:00:20

to those around him respectfully

00:00:21 --> 00:00:22

and understand

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

you need to have mercy, you need to

00:00:25 --> 00:00:27

know that guidance is in the hands of

00:00:27 --> 00:00:30

Allah. Your duty is just to deliver the

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

message. So don't belittle people. You can convey

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

the message.

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

Sometimes you can convey it in in a

00:00:37 --> 00:00:40

very direct way. But remember, when you apply

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

wisdom and tact,

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

it is far more

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

reaching than that which is lacking the tact

00:00:48 --> 00:00:50

and the wisdom. It will reach a deeper

00:00:50 --> 00:00:52

place in the heart. SubhanAllah.

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

Don't belittle people. We have an issue with

00:00:56 --> 00:00:59

practicing brothers and sisters who belittle those who

00:00:59 --> 00:01:01

may not yet be practicing.

00:01:01 --> 00:01:03

It is something serious.

00:01:03 --> 00:01:04

No need to belittle.

00:01:04 --> 00:01:07

By all means, give them da'wah, which means

00:01:07 --> 00:01:09

invite them to the good cause in a

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

beautiful way. Allah speaks about the people of

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

the book and the non Muslims. And Allah

00:01:13 --> 00:01:16

says when you're inviting them, you should call

00:01:16 --> 00:01:17

towards

00:01:17 --> 00:01:19

the the cause of Allah with wisdom,

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

and you should present beautiful

00:01:22 --> 00:01:24

arguments to say, You know what? Well, why

00:01:24 --> 00:01:26

don't you consider this and that? In a

00:01:26 --> 00:01:27

beautiful way,

00:01:27 --> 00:01:30

engage the mind, engage the heart. Try and

00:01:30 --> 00:01:33

speak to the person with love and care,

00:01:33 --> 00:01:34

with affection and concern.
