So the point being raised is there is a connection between all human beings then there is another connection if the person happens to be in the same circle as you, and how many circles are there, there are so many circles. Sometimes they are in the same family as you, so disbelievers but they are in your family. Allah says there is a double connection. Why one is that of human being to they are related to you? Does it mean I'm a Muslim, they are not Muslim, I need to just say stuff every time I see them, no.

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

If that was the case, we would become so pious because there are so many non Muslims on Earth, we would be saying stuff for Alaska for all our lives.

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

But in reality, your family if there is someone in your family who's not a Muslim, your duty is to treat them with utmost respect. Your duty is to behave in a way that they can feel that what you are upon is actually the truth.

00:01:00 --> 00:01:36

Yes, it happened so many times. People interact with Muslims here in the Java, so many years and centuries ago, they say there were some business people who came with beautiful interactions and honest upright business dealings. Am I right? Yes. What happened? People started to turn hey, these guys, I want to be with them. I want to be from you. I love it. This is amazing. You guys are straightforward. You guys don't drink you don't do any bad. You don't do this. You don't do that. You are kind you are generous. You help everyone and so on. Subhanallah they turn to Allah because of you and your actions. So if there is someone in your family who is not a Muslim, your actions

00:01:36 --> 00:01:54

need to be even more exemplary. Your parents if they're not Muslim, they are your parents. No matter what you will be kind to them, you will honor them. That's how you connect with Allah because you connect with human beings you connect by serving those around you you serve them. Don't be selfish. Shaytan is selfish.

00:01:55 --> 00:02:02

Subhanallah when the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received revelation, the first words what was the first word

00:02:03 --> 00:02:08

Ikara. Read he said, ma Anna Bukhari. I'm not a reader.

00:02:09 --> 00:02:17

Anyway, after that episode after the initial interaction with Jabril, the angel he came down to go to see who

00:02:18 --> 00:02:23

who did he want to meet first. Come on, say the name. Don't be shy bully Ebola.

00:02:26 --> 00:02:27

00:03:04 --> 00:03:08

Cover me what for? I have a problem. You are my biggest problem.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:12

That's what happens is true.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:50

Because the way we read our lives is far from the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Here is the greatest of all the one we follow Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he comes down and says a Maloney when he explains what happened. She said, Allah Allah He now you Zeke Allahu Akbar the no way Allah will never let you down you are a man you honor the guests you fulfill your relations you look after the neighbors you are upright you and she rattled out so many good qualities of the man how many good qualities do you and I have?
