Some people don't realize you need to put on a coat and you need to put it on Subhanallah where am I going to put it on Wallahi you know what for as long as you know your dress decently and you're covered and for as long as you know that you're not exposing anything by the will of Allah do it for the sake of Allah and not for the sake of Abdullah.
Right? And this is why this evening we seated all the Abdullah's down here and all the lessons at the top there Mashallah. They say that the sisters are perhaps 80% and the brothers are 20% SubhanAllah. And those 20 dictate the pace No, that's not going to happen. It's Allah who dictates the pace by the will of Allah. Do you know when you turn to Islam when you become practicing? Or when you've just said your shahada, you will face many challenges. It happened from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the earliest of those who accepted the message they faced persecution in Makkah, so much in terms of persecution that they were shaken, and they called out to
Allah they were chosen by Allah to be the first of the people to accept Islam yet they struggled more than anyone else. They were threatened. Many of them were beaten. Look at Billa lib Naga Allah who and what an example look at the family of Yasir known as Alia sir How much did they suffer? They were murdered some of them may Allah Almighty grant them the highest ranks of Jana was sabe Pune Sahbihi Guna.
He can move
Nari, marry him. Allah is promising them Paradise because they were the first to turn to Islam. They were the ones who came in right at the beginning. Allah is telling them you know what, they are the close ones for them. They will be paradise they will receive and achieve more than they would ever have imagined. May Allah Almighty make us steadfast so if Abu Bakr Omar Osman Ali rot the Allahu Anhu. Jimmy and may Allah be pleased with all of them, and the others
went through so much in terms of hardship and difficulty. Do you think we're not going to go through hardship and difficulty? You need to learn to be a proud Muslim, not pride, that is that comes with arrogance, and haughtiness and belittlement of others and rejection of the truth. But rather the pride as in happiness. I'm happy to be a Muslim. I'm a happy Muslim, and I'm proud of my identity. Here is my beard. Here is my cloak. And that's why I started the way I did, because while arguing about what should go before the other, you might just lose the entire sister. She said, You know what, bugger this whole argument neither neither an abaya, nor a cloak, nor a coat, it's out. It can
happen agree, people put so much of pressure on others that they get so fed up, they say I made a mistake. However, look at Allah telling us you will face challenge you have to face challenge. Don't give up your identity because a few people might have spat in your direction. A few people might have said a few hurtful words, a few people might have hurt you in one way or another. You can deal with that. You can deal with that you must deal with that in an appropriate way. But it should not deter you regarding your faith. If anything, it must make you stronger. If anything, it must make you stronger in your faith. If you decide to practice and your own family members are against you,
it should make you stronger because they were those chosen by Allah chosen by Allah who went through that as well.
