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

smilo al hamdu Lillah

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

wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah we praise Him subhana wa Taala, the king, the master the Sustainer,

00:00:12--> 00:00:19

the creator of the seven heavens and the earth and we send peace and blessings upon His Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

I guess.

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

Today we wanted to try something a little bit different.

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

And just give some general advice about dour

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

and how to give it the do's and the don'ts. Nothing specific but just common things that come to my mind inshallah, so that we can all benefit, inshallah, to Allah we can use to call

00:00:46--> 00:00:48

as many people as we can to the dean.

00:00:52--> 00:00:54

I think it's important that we all remember.

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

But the greatest job anyone can ever do

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

is the job of the MBA.

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

And every single profit

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

every single messenger was a die.

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

Someone that close to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:15--> 00:01:21

so you could be the greatest arbit it could be someone who memorizes could earn, you could be someone

00:01:22--> 00:01:30

who prays 200 all night, you can be someone who gives so much money in charity. And that's a beautiful thing. That's a very important thing.

00:01:31--> 00:01:49

But all of you are male cannot be compared to the person that caused other people to Allah. Woman so no, call me man die Lola. And who is better in speech loss paralysis? And who is better in speech more or less than the one that goes to Allah? subhanho? wa Taala?

00:01:51--> 00:01:55

Yeah, sometimes, when you really think about it, this is pretty deep.

00:01:57--> 00:02:06

Why? Because you could, you could be a professor, you could have a PhD. You could be a full blown scholar

00:02:07--> 00:02:11

who gives talks and lectures in universities and you're world renowned.

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

But you don't call to Allah.

00:02:16--> 00:02:34

And this person can be compared to someone who's a very simple man, maybe doesn't have a lot of education, maybe doesn't stand very high as far as status is concerned in the community. But this person close to Allah, this person is greater than the professor in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:36--> 00:02:53

You can talk for hours and hours and hours. But if all of your talk had nothing to do with Allah subhana wa Tada. And one men, it could be a little boy stood up and said Fie along those three words, those two words are far greater than the three hours that you spoke.

00:02:55--> 00:03:14

That was the greatest thing you can ever do. And hamdulillah I knew I was told that there's a lot of dairies here today Mashallah. There's a lot of young brothers that are active in giving Dawa in this country and in this community. And this is important. We need this. We need a lot of you know, I hate using the term young people because every Muslim is a day.

00:03:15--> 00:03:31

Every single Muslim is a die the Prophet of Allah He says something amazing, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, ballyhoo and Nuala convey the message about me share whatever you know about me, even if it's one verse

00:03:32--> 00:03:39

many of us tend to think that Tao is for Allah and scholars and mushiya this is so far from the truth.

00:03:40--> 00:03:46

Today we've made our like this exclusive job that only certain people can do. No You're very wrong

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

that way is to anyone and everyone

00:03:51--> 00:04:00

and sometimes we do face these struggles and I hope I can shed some light on it because today we have this culture that if you don't have knowledge you shouldn't speak

00:04:02--> 00:04:09

that someone needs to go see do a course that someone needs to have knowledge before he goes out and gives our

00:04:11--> 00:04:16

while it sounds okay on the outside. I don't entirely believe it.

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

Because really, what are we saying?

00:04:21--> 00:04:44

You've made our to be this exclusive thing that only certain people can do? No. Anyone can give our anyone can call to Allah. Anyone can remind one another that hey, this is around the corner that a you and I might die at any moment that my brother my sister, few Allah subhanaw taala I don't need to be a scholar to say these things. And that's our

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

again, you know, we always try to make it out that Tao is this. You have to be you know, a scholar, and you have to have had sat down for courses. Yes, of course this helps this assists your dour. It gives you material

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

gives you, you know, it gives you ammunition if you like to sort of give out there, but it's definitely not a requirement. And I always like to use this example,

00:05:11--> 00:05:15

when the Prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam when he received the revelation

00:05:18--> 00:05:21

and he went to Abu Bakar and he told him and Abu Bakr accepted Islam.

00:05:23--> 00:05:27

The very next day, Abu Bakar went and grabbed six people.

00:05:30--> 00:05:37

He goes down to six people and they accepted Islam and these six turned out to be from the 10 mobile Shireen.

00:05:38--> 00:05:43

I want to ask you when Abu Bakar went to the Sikhs, what our what knowledge did he have

00:05:45--> 00:05:50

there was no Quran yet. There was no there was no aqeedah courses, there was nothing

00:05:53--> 00:05:56

when he went to the six what knowledge did he give him?

00:05:57--> 00:06:14

Other than that, there's only one Allah which is of course the essence of everything our hate, and that's and that's the absolute artery that that that there is only one Allah. Yeah, he said to them, La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, and Sikhs accepted Islam.

00:06:16--> 00:06:24

So sometimes we try to make our to be this. No, anyone can talk about Deen. Now, yes, what we do need to highlight. So without falling into danger

00:06:25--> 00:06:32

is never talk about things you have no knowledge of this I definitely agree with. And that's the danger.

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

If you don't have knowledge about something, don't talk about it.

00:06:39--> 00:06:48

If you don't have, no matter how much you're cornered, no matter how much you find yourself in a sticky situation, because sometimes, you know, when you become a dairy,

00:06:50--> 00:06:52

you unknowingly become a chef.

00:06:53--> 00:06:57

And you don't realize it. And that's a really big dangerous sometimes.

00:06:58--> 00:07:09

Sometimes you find these so if you put in a corner, you asked something you have no knowledge. But you feel like look, I've gone too deep. I can't back out now. And that's the problem.

00:07:11--> 00:07:14

Well, yes, you don't need knowledge to speak about Dean.

00:07:15--> 00:07:23

If everyone spoke about what he knows, there's no harm in that but to speak about things you have no knowledge of, this is the danger.

00:07:24--> 00:07:32

So sometimes brother stomata, you know, okay, I'm happy to give our but what happens when someone asks me something that I don't know.

00:07:34--> 00:07:45

It's Apollo, you know what our profit left nothing. Salallahu alaihe. Salam he taught you everything. What's the sun know when you don't know something? And someone asks you, what's the suit of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

00:07:46--> 00:07:47

Does anyone know?

00:07:50--> 00:07:54

I don't know. Let's assume that you actually get rewarded for saying I don't know.

00:07:58--> 00:08:09

So this sounds nice here in the masjid. He might say but sometimes I'm outside. And it's a non Muslim. And if I say to him, I don't know. And he turns around and says to me, Well, what sort of a Muslim doesn't know?

00:08:10--> 00:08:11

very easily.

00:08:12--> 00:08:15

I'm an honest Muslim who says I don't know when I don't know.

00:08:17--> 00:08:18

It's not difficult.

00:08:20--> 00:08:25

Give me your question. I'll go to someone who has knowledge. I'll come back with the answer and both of us will learn

00:08:27--> 00:08:28

why is this embarrassing?

00:08:30--> 00:08:36

So you know, when it comes to dour, speak, encourage others to speak

00:08:37--> 00:08:42

whatever whatever little you know about your deen I mean, imagine the Prophet of Allah says ballyhoo annually.

00:08:45--> 00:08:55

The criteria is one a year if anyone knows one a year you are now obliged to speak about it. Have near v another sort of Fatiha

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

malice, just raise your hand on it's a very

00:09:01--> 00:09:10

so that's seven, eight, you know, the prophet of Allah says, if it's one, they've you know, seven, you are now obliged to go and talk about your deen.

00:09:11--> 00:09:15

So that's one thing. And then for the brothers that do get involved in dour.

00:09:17--> 00:09:24

It starts off very nice and full of energy. And then of course, you get faced with challenges.

00:09:26--> 00:09:32

And I think the biggest, not the biggest, but one of the really important things is to be steadfast.

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

Many of us get caught up with numbers.

00:09:38--> 00:09:52

We start talking, how many people have you converted? How many people have you reverted? How many people have you brought back to the measured? If you find yourself falling into this conversation, know that you're in a very, very dangerous place.

00:09:54--> 00:09:57

Because you're giving Dawa is not about numbers.

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

That was an obligation.

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

upon you.

00:10:03--> 00:10:11

And just because you're giving Dawa and no one is coming to them, no one is accepting Islam or no one is coming to the measured with you, that doesn't mean that you are failing.

00:10:13--> 00:10:25

We get caught up with numbers sometimes. And it's nice. I mean, it's very nice when you give data and the person accepts and he nods his head, gives you a shadow, he comes back with you to the measured. That's very nice. It makes you feel very good.

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

But the truth is, we should do it regardless whether they accept that and accept.

00:10:32--> 00:10:37

And these are some of the tricky things that we face. And many Muslims.

00:10:38--> 00:10:43

We either tend to forget or we fail to understand that he there is not in our hands.

00:10:45--> 00:10:51

These are principles we have to understand. You cannot guide anyone.

00:10:52--> 00:11:07

Sometimes we forget that. Sometimes I see brothers, they get very frustrated. I think what's wrong with this guy? I came to him I spoke to him. I gave him the lead. And we had it was in Buhari and I mentioned I have Quran and he still refuses

00:11:10--> 00:11:11

it's not about your lead.

00:11:13--> 00:11:17

It's not about how talented you are in speech. He there is from Allah.

00:11:19--> 00:11:21

The Prophet of Allah Quran guide is an uncle.

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

You better than the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

is your speech going to be better than is?

00:11:30--> 00:11:34

The recording guide is an uncle. Imagine how painful that was.

00:11:36--> 00:11:42

And this really hurt the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And imagine he's you know, he comes to his uncle his uncle's dying.

00:11:44--> 00:11:58

This is you know, it's parliament. When it comes to Tao. There's so many things that we can learn from the zero. Many of us tend to look at anyone that's non Muslim, is bad and evil and is a cafe and he's just going straight to Jonathan.

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

House, it's become sides. You're either with us or you're against us.

00:12:05--> 00:12:08

What's this attitude? This attitude isn't the attitude of a day.

00:12:10--> 00:12:13

And this wasn't the attitude of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

one of the greatest supporters of Deen

00:12:19--> 00:12:24

one of the greatest backbones of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:12:26--> 00:12:27

was a non Muslim, his uncle

00:12:29--> 00:12:31

biggest supporters.

00:12:32--> 00:12:36

What Abu Talib did for them, excuse me Mallesh

00:12:37--> 00:12:44

I would challenge most Muslims today if they're ready to do what he did for Islam, even though he himself was a non Muslim.

00:12:47--> 00:13:00

So what I'm saying is sometimes you will come across very, you know, most people are good natured. Not everyone is evil. Not everyone hates you. So let's get this mentality out of here is not a Muslim is a Kaffir going straight to gentlemen.

00:13:02--> 00:13:04

That I can't benefit from him.

00:13:05--> 00:13:07

No, you're a day.

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

You're a day.

00:13:11--> 00:13:15

And the day should always be open, and you never know where there's hair.

00:13:16--> 00:13:25

So going back today is not in our hands today is in the hands of a Lost Planet Allah, Allah guides whom He once known as Allah can miss God whomever he wants.

00:13:27--> 00:13:49

He imagined the Prophet of Allah sallallahu sallam, he says please, Uncle, you know, really tried to sort of live this, you know? Imagine he's your uncle, he supported you so much his family, you're a prophet of Allah, you know, the reality of janam you know, he's begging his uncle, he says my uncle Please, I'm begging you just whispered in my ear.

00:13:51--> 00:13:59

And you don't even have to make it public. Just say something in might give me something and I'll do the rest on the Day of Judgment I'll do the rest.

00:14:01--> 00:14:02

Is unconfused

00:14:06--> 00:14:18

and the last part Allah says he day is not in your hands we got when we want and this sometimes it's a very I mean, I don't know it sounds very nice. But these are the things that we need to remind ourselves

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

we do our because that's our job.

00:14:23--> 00:14:28

But he they are whom Allah subhanaw taala guides has nothing to do with you and I

00:14:31--> 00:14:47

don't get caught up in this delille and of course the only these you know, I believe you should always use I always use that which is authentic. Always use that which is strong. Always use that which has a base but don't think that this is going to win people's hearts.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

The only thing that does for me is that it gives them the correct picture of Islam. You know mean that it displays the right you know, it gives them a solid foundation.

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

To base or to judge but today is not in our hands reminding us of that

00:15:07--> 00:15:08

and never ever forget

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

my brother my sister anyone that's involved in our

00:15:13--> 00:15:27

sometimes we get onto Dean and hamdulillah we've been in Dean for a couple of years and things are going well and maybe you're quite good with your mouth and some people look up to you in the community whatever the case is. Don't let that get to your ego man.

00:15:30--> 00:15:32

Never forget that there was a time when you were misguided

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

who guided us.

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

last panel, Allah guided us

00:15:41--> 00:15:45

and I think when it comes to Tao, this is this is a very important element.

00:15:47--> 00:15:51

We come to people with so insisting on pointing out the wrongs,

00:15:53--> 00:15:56

insisting on telling him that this is the way it is.

00:15:58--> 00:16:04

And this is very painful sometimes. Because maybe now hamdulillah we're on Dean so we can understand a little bit.

00:16:06--> 00:16:08

But don't you forget that there was a time when you weren't listening?

00:16:09--> 00:16:13

I remember for me, there was a time when people used to knock on my door

00:16:15--> 00:16:16

Muslims they saw knock on my door

00:16:17--> 00:16:20

they have beads and thobes

00:16:21--> 00:16:24

I slept under the law What are these guys doing?

00:16:26--> 00:16:27

I wasn't interested.

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

I wanted nothing to do with the

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

of who guided me

00:16:38--> 00:16:38

along

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

now when I come to talk to people it's

00:16:43--> 00:16:44

always be humble.

00:16:46--> 00:16:47

Don't forget where you were.

00:16:49--> 00:16:52

And when you're faced with someone who's very arrogant and you just

00:16:53--> 00:16:57

use that as of use that as a moment to thank Allah

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

that you're like thank you for guiding me. I thank you for giving me that sort of mentality.

00:17:09--> 00:17:11

Always Be humble when it comes to your dow

00:17:13--> 00:17:15

some of the things are that

00:17:18--> 00:17:19

you know, when we give Dawa

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

we sort of always want to highlight people's mistakes.

00:17:28--> 00:17:31

You know, the brother You don't pray so you're going to join them?

00:17:33--> 00:17:37

Well, yeah, in theory, you're right. In reality, that doesn't work.

00:17:39--> 00:17:42

Most people, most people,

00:17:43--> 00:17:49

when you highlight their mistakes, they naturally get on the defense.

00:17:51--> 00:18:01

As soon as you come to point something out, that's wrong in me. And you know what, let me be honest with you. Religious people are the worst when it comes to this.

00:18:02--> 00:18:16

We say that know that. Please. If you see a mistake in me, you please come and tell me Give me the Nazi Honda. We say this to act humble. But in truth when someone comes to give you an A say Ha. And comes to tell you that brother, look, I think you're making a mistake.

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

Who's here to come talk to me? I heard that he grew his beard yesterday. Now he wants to come teach me about my Deen.

00:18:25--> 00:18:31

Where was this guy last week? Did he forget when I knocked on his door? Did he forget when I pulled him out of the clubs.

00:18:33--> 00:18:38

So we make it out like, you know, so when you give us he had done point out people's mistakes.

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

Try to encourage people.

00:18:44--> 00:18:44

You know,

00:18:45--> 00:18:50

for me when it comes to diet, I have this theory that it's all about the heart.

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

There is a good day is a doctor of the heart.

00:18:57--> 00:18:59

That what do I need to do to win his heart.

00:19:00--> 00:19:03

When you win someone's heart, you can get him to do anything.

00:19:05--> 00:19:07

But if I don't win his heart,

00:19:08--> 00:19:10

doesn't matter what you say. And what you do.

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

There's very little chance of winning that person over.

00:19:16--> 00:19:22

Very, very, very little chance. I'll give you like some examples of things that happen with me.

00:19:26--> 00:19:28

So say for myself back home in Sydney,

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

I get a lot of brothers that come to me.

00:19:34--> 00:19:35

And in our area, there's some

00:19:37--> 00:19:40

sometimes it can get pretty rough. So there's a lot of drug dealers and

00:19:41--> 00:19:46

there's a lot of people that are just you know, on the wrong side of the mall and just on the wrong side of life in general.

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

And sometimes this drug dealer will have a brother.

00:19:51--> 00:19:52

All right.

00:19:54--> 00:19:57

And from my experience, in most cases, your family will never accept your dollar.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

That's just the

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

This is just a quick one off the bat you could be the greatest dad in the world you could be the greatest I live in the world

00:20:07--> 00:20:24

I believe a son can ever give power to is that for me, that's just it just doesn't have any handler like I won't rule it out completely but overall generally speaking, and uh for for me to this day whenever I come to say something to my dad like like like hockey hockey

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

he spoke hockey badly you know?

00:20:32--> 00:20:48

So so this this is you know, support for me when it comes to my mom and dad, you either mushiya new other Oliver and boil it or else your life. And and, you know, I believe that the dollar to mom and dad is usually with mentors and a lot of really,

00:20:49--> 00:20:52

you know, never ever oppose your dad.

00:20:53--> 00:20:54

Never.

00:20:55--> 00:21:26

Hello, now, now that we're speaking about this, and this is what tends to happen and many of us tend to lose sight you know, I was sharing this funny story with the brothers that we have this brother back home who and this tends to become common that a young brother who will be you know, lost or whatever you like and then he comes on to Dean and you know, when he first come on to the end this this beautiful taste, say find that many of us within a very short time he can go from spiky hair, clubbing smoking girls

00:21:28--> 00:21:34

to shaved hair, little bead of a fob in the masjid in a very short time.

00:21:35--> 00:21:47

And that's a good thing. Like there's no harm in that. But what tends to happen is that this brother gets so caught up in his Deen. Now when he goes back home to mom and dad, all he can see at home is the mistakes.

00:21:49--> 00:22:00

Right? This is haraam. This is kafala This is a bizarre, you people are lost this family's misguided, I can't live here anymore. This is not the one

00:22:02--> 00:22:31

that was left and the wisdom what to say when to say how to say who to say it to you know. So we had this one young brother, that every time he came home, you know, just rips into his father, you know, look at you, you're clean shaven with a mustache, you're doing exactly the opposite of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, you claim to be a Muslim. This is disgusting. I can't live in this. He was a young kid. I think we are 17 years old, you know, anything his father did do the highlighter, you know, and the father like, Scott,

00:22:33--> 00:22:34

just stuff like this.

00:22:39--> 00:22:59

So one day, he came home one day he came home, and his father had these friends over and you know, like, smoking cigarettes and now playing cards, you know? What's this? What's this smoking cigarettes, this is harm you people are lost any food completely lost, you know. So as far as

00:23:02--> 00:23:08

guys into the room, get some Come come come come into the room. They came into the room while I his father, Bella

00:23:11--> 00:23:13

right here a bad girl Boomer a beta.

00:23:15--> 00:23:20

So this kid did when he got smashed and fell down to the floor of the father's bidding, looks up system.

00:23:29--> 00:23:32

So we need to sort of have some sort of,

00:23:34--> 00:23:52

you know, there really needs to be some sort of wisdom. You know, I think especially when it comes to our parents, you know, and and for me, it's very important that you remind yourself very quickly, where you were, you know, most of us most of us were lost, not praying, not fasting, no Dean in our lives.

00:23:53--> 00:24:00

When you get onto Dean, you should be a means to empower people. But really what tends to happen is we end up turning people off.

00:24:02--> 00:24:12

Why? Because this transition of coming onto the scene, in most cases is very quick. And let me be honest with you, most people that get on to the very, very quickly, they usually end up falling up.

00:24:14--> 00:24:37

Because Dina's away, like it has this. It has a similar it has a telomere. And those that just want to go straight to the top very quickly. And while I'm in my experience, very few I've seen Hang on, most people end up falling off, even if it's after three, four years, you know, so Dean has weighed in is about luck and manners and wisdom and winning people's hearts. So again,

00:24:38--> 00:25:00

going back to what I was saying that sebec I'm in Sydney, I'll get lots of people who come to me, brother, please. You have to come speak to my brother. He's a big time drug dealer, and I tell him everything he's doing is haram. He doesn't listen to me he always brings gills on and this you know and the whole list of things. So the brother, he tries to, you know, encourage me in public

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

me up and told me about how wicked and how evil his brother is, and how you know, so come on, brother, please. You know, let me take you to my house. He doesn't listen to me. But if you go Mashallah, you're gonna rip into him and he's gonna listen to.

00:25:13--> 00:25:43

So usually I tell him Whoa, relax anyway, so the guy will come pick me up, take me to his brother's house. And I'm only sharing this with you a lie. I'm not boasting or saying that I but yeah, I'm just sharing what I feel works. Now I know exactly what's happening. His brothers heard everything you've got to say. And his brother's already got to think he comes a tall, fat bloke with a big beard and a bear who thinks he's a chef. He's gonna give me you know. So I already know that. That's what he's thinking.

00:25:44--> 00:25:47

So I'll come in, and of course, his brother brought me.

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

So I know he's already on the defense.

00:25:53--> 00:26:04

So I'll come in. I'll spend an hour there. And in the whole hour, I won't mention a law or his prophet or Dean, not even once.

00:26:07--> 00:26:12

Allah His younger brother is on fire is looking at me thinking I'm into Sharona, what do I bring you?

00:26:14--> 00:26:16

But that's exactly why I'm not doing it.

00:26:17--> 00:26:29

So I'll sit there, and I'll talk. And I'll joke, and we'll laugh. And I'll talk to him about cars. I'll talk to him about girls. I'll talk to him about you know, whatever it is to when he's up.

00:26:32--> 00:26:43

He's thinking these guys, they hate the uh, you know that these guys hate life. They hate having fun. That's how Unfortunately, that's how most people think most people think that once you grow a bit, then you start praying in the masjid

00:26:44--> 00:27:15

house that this person doesn't know how to have fun. And you need to break that barrier. Now I do not have fun and I know how to joke and I know what you think about and I know what you love. Because there was a time I used to think that and like that and love that too. So what usually happens is this guy in the back of his mind, he's thinking, Okay, I know this homeless guy, everyone talks to me about him. He's gonna talk to me about life. He's gonna talk to me about Lala, it's coming. It's coming. He's trying to win me over. And I'll sit there for an hour and we'll have such a good time and a laugh and a joke. And just when I know he's ready for it.

00:27:17--> 00:27:23

I'll tell him our brother, man, you know, forgive me. I've been here long enough. I've really got to go. Chill, and maybe next time we can catch up.

00:27:26--> 00:27:31

No, no, no, you know, I was just enjoying the visit. Let's talk a turn now. Man, I've got to go.

00:27:35--> 00:27:38

And I'm telling you nine times out of 10 you now that ends up

00:27:40--> 00:27:44

the profit Can I come see you? Can you come visit me again? Can you

00:27:46--> 00:27:47

now he's ready for the

00:27:49--> 00:27:56

now he's ready to listen. He may not act. But now he's ready to listen that the lifestyle is living is not the best.

00:27:58--> 00:27:59

It's about wisdom

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

that's dour. It's about winning people's hearts.

00:28:04--> 00:28:17

It's not always about pointing out the mistakes and telling him that he's got yes, sometimes sometimes that does work in a certain time in a certain environment. Depending on your influence. It may work but generally speaking, it doesn't work.

00:28:20--> 00:28:23

When people's hearts, you in the heart,

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

he'll do whatever you want. You know, when he's hot, you don't want nice trust.

00:28:31--> 00:28:34

You won't get anything out of him. And that's the thing you know, when it comes to Dawa.

00:28:36--> 00:28:47

Many of us we just, we give our because it's a job. It's a responsibility. Because it's you know, an admirable motto for Nana munkar. obligation, Dean, that is what I got to do.

00:28:49--> 00:28:51

Again, people are not foolish.

00:28:54--> 00:28:56

By a law, my brothers, I'm telling you the truth.

00:28:58--> 00:29:13

People know when you're speaking to them, if it's coming from the heart, or if it's just an image, it's just the front. It's just to show people that look at me. I'm out on the street, that I'm busy and dour that I don't care. I say it the way it is. People know the difference.

00:29:16--> 00:29:38

And if that was not coming from the heart, you know, when the person feels that this person is really speaking to me because he cares. He's really worried about me. He really doesn't want me to go to hell fire. He really wants me to have a better life. When people feel that you are really genuine and sincere. Trust me, what comes from the heart

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

always enters the heart.

00:29:43--> 00:29:44

It enters the heart.

00:29:46--> 00:29:50

So again, always remind us of why am I talking to this brother.

00:29:53--> 00:29:57

And this and this, you know and this sort of comes across in the way we talk

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

you know with

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

When it's like a one on one, I prefer this sort of style. And it's not complete. But I mean, I prefer this sort of style. I always prefer that. You know,

00:30:10--> 00:30:14

I always prefer to say that look, humbler that used to be a time when I wasn't praying.

00:30:15--> 00:30:22

And he doesn't pray. He knows he doesn't pray. And he knows that you know, that he doesn't pray. I don't need to highlight it.

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

I don't need to tell him Brother, you don't pray.

00:30:29--> 00:30:52

What I do most of the times, and I'm the lucky tends to work for me, is I tell him Look, you know, I'm the law. You know, I grew up, I wasn't really the best of people. And I grew up most of my life. And I didn't pray. And you know, I tried this. And I tried that. And I went here, and I went there. And automatically now he feels what connection he feels relation that Yeah, hang on. I'm on that road.

00:30:53--> 00:31:08

And, you know, he, you know, and handler, through No, through no action of my own, but a lot of hakala he sort of guided me and complain a lot. I started praying a few years ago. And, you know, I noticed that once I started praying, I really started to feel a change in my life.

00:31:10--> 00:31:18

I really started to feel that I have a Lord, I really started to feel the presence of Allah subhanho wa Taala, you know, and things really changed in my life.

00:31:21--> 00:31:24

automatically by you saying that, what's he thinking?

00:31:26--> 00:31:29

He's thinking, Man, I gotta start this solo thing.

00:31:32--> 00:31:38

You know, so so sometimes I feel indirect, our is more direct than what we think.

00:31:40--> 00:31:44

And again, you know, be a doctor, a doctor of the heart.

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

What we lack as Muslims in general, especially as their eyes, his wisdom.

00:31:52--> 00:31:54

And wisdom is what,

00:31:55--> 00:32:00

what to say, when to say it, how to say it, and to learn to say it too.

00:32:02--> 00:32:11

Sometimes you could have perfect the lead 100% authentic, but you're giving it to the wrong individual, you can cause more damage than good.

00:32:13--> 00:32:22

And this will come in time naturally. And that's why it's important any day. In fact, any Muslim period, needs to have connection to machine

00:32:24--> 00:32:27

needs to have connection to those that are senior in age.

00:32:29--> 00:32:38

This concept of our we don't need my shave. And who cares about what the LMS said, and who cares about this is, you know, you're already on the path to failure.

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

Now, we do need the wisdom.

00:32:44--> 00:32:45

You can always learn

00:32:47--> 00:32:49

and that's a believer, believers always learning.

00:32:51--> 00:32:58

Even from a careful, you know, for myself, even if I'm with a non Muslim, I always look for something in him that I can take home.

00:33:00--> 00:33:04

I'm sure there's something that he's doing. That is good that I can take.

00:33:06--> 00:33:07

It's not always about giving.

00:33:09--> 00:33:10

We also want to take

00:33:12--> 00:33:16

some other things that also tend to happen is

00:33:18--> 00:33:19

when we give Dawa

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

we're always calling for something.

00:33:25--> 00:33:28

And this happens a lot that I'm calling you to my machine.

00:33:30--> 00:33:31

I'm calling you to my chef.

00:33:32--> 00:33:34

I'm calling you to Al Jamal.

00:33:35--> 00:33:37

I'm calling you to Africa.

00:33:38--> 00:33:40

I'm calling you to our books.

00:33:43--> 00:33:44

This is disastrous.

00:33:47--> 00:33:52

No brother, no. He has to be actually what he has to be is not in your hands.

00:33:54--> 00:34:09

Our job is to guide and that's why I always say whenever you speak to anyone, anyone Muslim or non Muslim. Whenever you speak to anyone and you want to give this person power, connect this person to a law.

00:34:13--> 00:34:32

Connection connect them to a law, don't connect them to your machine. Don't Can you know sometimes people to Brother listen to the speaker. He's amazing. Listen to him and only him and this is the yes while it's a good thing and I'm not doubting that maybe this guy may be a great speaker and really, but that's not my job.

00:34:35--> 00:34:38

This speaker cannot cater to all my needs.

00:34:41--> 00:34:46

connect them to Allah. When you connect them to Allah you solved all the problems.

00:34:49--> 00:34:52

And that's the problem. Sometimes I'm connecting you to my machine.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

I'm connecting you to select so as a good thing, yes or no. You know, you're connecting you know

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Connect him to Allah through the solo.

00:35:04--> 00:35:18

Connect him to Allah through your Masjid. I don't have a problem with that. Connect him to Allah through the speaker or that speaker, I don't have a problem. But we always connect people to who, to Allah. If we connect them to Allah, we've solved all the problems.

00:35:21--> 00:35:23

And that's why you find you know, that

00:35:24--> 00:35:35

sometimes people say, yeah, you know what, hamdullah I gave this guy down when he started coming to our machine for three months now he's left our machine, he's gone somewhere else. And the brother gets upset. Why are you upset?

00:35:37--> 00:35:40

Why are you upset? Who will you connecting him to to your machine?

00:35:43--> 00:35:45

Will you connecting him to a law

00:35:48--> 00:35:49

and that's important.

00:35:52--> 00:36:01

My message will not be there forever. My grandma will not be there forever. My Eman my great speaker will not be there forever. But Allah will always be there.

00:36:02--> 00:36:04

connect people to Allah.

00:36:07--> 00:36:09

And that's something that's extremely important.

00:36:11--> 00:36:12

Some other things that

00:36:15--> 00:36:16

tend to happen

00:36:18--> 00:36:18

is

00:36:20--> 00:36:21

the masjid

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

for me

00:36:25--> 00:36:26

is the hospital

00:36:28--> 00:36:30

it's it's a hospital.

00:36:33--> 00:36:35

And not everyone in the hospital is sick.

00:36:37--> 00:36:40

Today, unfortunately our machines have become

00:36:42--> 00:36:45

really let me be honest, amateurs have become clubs.

00:36:46--> 00:36:49

Now I'm in a club with his dancing and music No.

00:36:51--> 00:36:58

But it's a club for me and the boys and the people that think like me and pray like me and act like me and talk like me, that's what my methods become No.

00:37:01--> 00:37:04

You know, find the method has any more tolerance anymore.

00:37:06--> 00:37:42

And the truth is my brothers you know, Nothing hurts me more. Nothing hurts me more. When the you know, when people stand up, and they suck money from a community for a Masjid. And I promise you the heavens and the earth and yes, this machine is going to be different. And we're here to serve the people and give for the sake of Allah and he who builds a house for our last panel to Allah. And Mashallah we all become scholars, anything and everything I can do to take the money from the people. Then when I take their money, and I open the masjid, it becomes a club for me and my boys.

00:37:45--> 00:37:48

That's why you look around. Most of our machines are failing.

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

Most of them.

00:37:53--> 00:38:00

Sometimes you walk into a measured Honestly, I don't know what it is anymore. Is this a house of a law? Or is this a prison? Is this the yard in the prison?

00:38:02--> 00:38:04

It's all about me and my crew.

00:38:07--> 00:38:09

Every measured is dominated by race.

00:38:13--> 00:38:23

It's either Lebanese measured to an African Majid. It's a Moroccan Masjid. It's a Pakistani Masjid. And there's always the two three Misaki, who just happened to be different.

00:38:24--> 00:38:26

But they are because they don't have a chance anyway.

00:38:28--> 00:38:34

No one's allowed to give a damn. It's the same at them for the last 50 years. He says they are then wrong, but that's just how it is. Yeah.

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

And we claim at the house of Lenin that we love everyone Do you really love everyone?

00:38:44--> 00:38:53

Because it doesn't feel that way in your Masjid. Maybe it feels that way amongst you and your friends, but go to someone who's a little bit different and ask him for some genuine feedback.

00:38:55--> 00:38:57

And this for me hurts.

00:38:59--> 00:39:00

Because the masjid

00:39:01--> 00:39:13

is the house of Allah. And this we have to understand the machine is not your house. It is not your property. It doesn't belong to you. It's a law's house.

00:39:17--> 00:39:27

And every single person, this is going to shock some of you every single person that walks through those doors, Muslim, Sunni, not Sunni.

00:39:29--> 00:39:37

Whatever you want Christian, Jew, atheist. She Allawi the bully Arica what is

00:39:41--> 00:39:47

I don't care who and what he is. Any human being that walks through those doors.

00:39:49--> 00:39:52

is not your guest. He's our last guest.

00:39:54--> 00:39:55

This is a law's house

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

and it is your job.

00:40:01--> 00:40:03

The people of the Majid, Al Majid

00:40:04--> 00:40:09

to another guest of Allah as best as you can and make them feel comfortable and welcome.

00:40:11--> 00:40:25

When he goes to your house tell him by his ashay his Allah, he's going to Jonathan, I don't care what you tell him. That's your business. That's your house. He's your guest Do as you please. But when he walks through those doors, he's our last guest.

00:40:29--> 00:40:30

You don't feel that anymore.

00:40:33--> 00:40:37

Today as soon as someone walks in, we we judge who's

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

wait for him to pray

00:40:43--> 00:40:44

Wait, wait, wait.

00:40:45--> 00:40:48

Don't Don't shoot him yet. Just Just wait.

00:40:50--> 00:40:56

What are you waiting for? Voila. And you know brothers really, you know, this is this is why our files

00:40:58--> 00:41:01

waiting to the praise tab. What are you waiting for? Let's be honest.

00:41:03--> 00:41:05

Wait, if he puts his hands up

00:41:09--> 00:41:10

if they go down

00:41:15--> 00:41:17

if you put his hands to the side in the living

00:41:19--> 00:41:25

room, Bella, forget mazahub muttalib Imam Malik Lima Muhammad Ali Baba 100% is one of them.

00:41:29--> 00:41:30

If he's clean shaven,

00:41:31--> 00:41:32

who's gonna talk to him first?

00:41:40--> 00:41:42

Yeah, again, we need to be your guest

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

is almost This

00:41:47--> 00:41:48

is our last guest

00:41:51--> 00:42:14

You know, I'm yet I'm yet to walk into a measured way you really find that muhabba? The You know what, that everyone's walking the woman? And yeah, of course, I'm not saying that anyone can get up and give a first class in the measured now of course, and and measured have a right and the responsibility to make sure that what I teach is correct, and that it's authentic. Yes. But as far as the audience and who walks in and who walks out, it's not your business.

00:42:15--> 00:42:18

Our job is to serve these people. These are the guests of our last panel.

00:42:22--> 00:42:30

And what hurts me the most is that now young days, young days, who really in truth, they know very little of the deen

00:42:32--> 00:42:40

and that doesn't faze me. They Mashallah young brothers who have a lot of energy and I love that and that they busy and out and that's fine. But they get caught up.

00:42:42--> 00:42:52

All we tend to talk about now is politics and differences. And this person and that person that aren't really and I just want to ask, What benefit are these conversations?

00:42:55--> 00:43:02

I want anyone here to be sincere, just face and see who he has sat down in a conversation

00:43:03--> 00:43:13

of politics or differences or mother him or this whoever sat in any of these conversations and walked away feeling an increase in emotion

00:43:15--> 00:43:16

never

00:43:17--> 00:43:21

you always walk away confused, stressed, worried.

00:43:23--> 00:43:24

So what do you get caught up in

00:43:25--> 00:43:30

leave these conversations for those people who have that you know who are in that authority.

00:43:33--> 00:43:34

Don't get caught up in these things.

00:43:37--> 00:43:38

Our job should be to bring hearts together.

00:43:40--> 00:43:48

So going back to the measure that the measure is the house of Allah and the measured for me is the hospital. anyone and everyone is welcomed in the hospital.

00:43:49--> 00:43:51

This is where people come to get cured.

00:43:52--> 00:43:59

So yeah, if he's on the wrong track, either come, Alexandre. This is the place where in Charlotte Allah Bismillah you'll be guided.

00:44:01--> 00:44:06

If he comes in and he doesn't know what day it is, he doesn't know how to pray. Come Come here he comes out of Salah

00:44:08--> 00:44:15

is a non Muslim, come, come please come out of Salah. This is the place to lay a towel and maybe you'll have guidance.

00:44:18--> 00:44:21

It's the hospital and again not everyone in the hospital seek.

00:44:24--> 00:44:25

Not everyone in the hospital is sick.

00:44:28--> 00:44:29

In the hospital, you have doctors

00:44:32--> 00:44:34

in the hospital, we have visitors guests.

00:44:35--> 00:44:37

Those that are coming to visit the sick.

00:44:39--> 00:44:41

In the hospital, you've got nurses

00:44:42--> 00:44:45

in the hospital you have what you have an ambulance

00:44:47--> 00:44:48

was the ambulance of the measured

00:44:51--> 00:44:51

way

00:44:52--> 00:44:55

was the ambulances of our machines. Were they

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

were those young Chabad who

00:45:00--> 00:45:16

Come to the machine they get together brother who are you going to visit? Are you going to go visit today? Who are you going to go visit today? How many Muslims do we know who don't come to the machine but who's going to go visit them? Where's the ambulance that's going to go to their houses and pick them up and come and bring them back to the hospital where

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

way

00:45:25--> 00:45:27

there's no ambulances in our machines anymore.

00:45:30--> 00:45:33

And let me tell you something if you think this is our This is not our

00:45:34--> 00:45:39

giving nice talks. Having Mashallah nice following this isn't our

00:45:41--> 00:45:43

I don't believe this is our This is cheating.

00:45:45--> 00:45:46

No, I call this

00:45:48--> 00:45:49

this is champagne our

00:45:52--> 00:45:53

celebrity status

00:45:54--> 00:46:00

Shall I come I take off my coat. I put my coat up. I sit on the nice table look there's lights and a camera

00:46:02--> 00:46:03

slow

00:46:06--> 00:46:07

you think this is our

00:46:09--> 00:46:13

you brothers came to see me anyway. This is an effort

00:46:15--> 00:46:17

that was going to those people who don't want the

00:46:19--> 00:46:22

Dow is going to the guy who clearly told you I don't want to pray.

00:46:23--> 00:46:30

That's real dow this isn't our I mean, yeah. Not saying this isn't our at all but you can't compare the two.

00:46:34--> 00:46:40

Anyway, there's so many things are on mentioned by just lastly that because this is very important for every single day.

00:46:41--> 00:46:50

That Yes, while getting involved in dow is good. And you know, helping people and all this stuff is good. I find that wherever I go, a lot of dads tend to forget themselves as men.

00:46:53--> 00:46:55

Never forget yourself.

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

How much Dean is really in your life.

00:47:02--> 00:47:04

You can be the greatest dancer in the world. I don't doubt you.

00:47:05--> 00:47:07

But how much Dinis day really in your life.

00:47:10--> 00:47:12

You know, like I get invited by a lot of

00:47:13--> 00:47:23

masajid organizations, charities, like I get invited by lots of and I'm telling you, generally speaking, wherever I go around the world, like it makes me want to cry man.

00:47:25--> 00:47:28

The people that are supposed to be the face of Dean.

00:47:29--> 00:47:33

I'm telling you presidents of machines, presidents, the boards,

00:47:35--> 00:47:46

the boards, those that run the machine in most cases. For me anyway, for me, this is a complex for most cases, the clean shaven suits and ties and they live in the mosque.

00:47:47--> 00:47:49

But they're the ones that run the machine.

00:47:55--> 00:48:12

So I get invited by these organizations. And then what I tend to find these people invite me and we're also keen Yeah, we're gonna have a big talk and we've been advertising for months. We're expecting 1000 people. Yeah, well, that's nice. But I noticed that the guy that's driving me around

00:48:14--> 00:48:19

the brothers that have organized there's no deed in his life at all. He barely prays.

00:48:23--> 00:48:25

So we will need to not forget ourselves.

00:48:27--> 00:48:30

calling people to Allah is a beautiful thing but what about yourself?

00:48:32--> 00:48:34

How much Salah in the masjid is in your life and be honest?

00:48:36--> 00:48:38

How much could n is in your own life?

00:48:39--> 00:48:41

How much fear of allies really in your own life?

00:48:42--> 00:48:44

How much charity Do you really give?

00:48:46--> 00:48:48

How much charity Do you really give

00:48:52--> 00:49:01

everyone Mashallah I'm telling you give me a camera, I can give you the best talk in the world. But then when the camera turns off, you know in your own life was your

00:49:02--> 00:49:03

was your disappear.

00:49:07--> 00:49:18

One of the things that kills me kills me and this is a confession, I'm openly confessing, I traveled the world. But I fail to visit my own uncles, and Auntie's that are back home in Sydney.

00:49:20--> 00:49:28

I can only I can jump on a plane for 30 hours, to be 30 hours to get from Sydney to London 30 hours

00:49:30--> 00:49:39

away from my wife and my kids no problems. But to go visit my uncle who lives 1015 minutes away from me feels like a mountain. But that's Dean.

00:49:41--> 00:49:42

That's Dean.

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

So what I tend to find is that a lot of us there is you find that Dean is lacking in our own lives. You know, fasting, just very very, very quickly. How many of us are fasting?

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

For us fasting is only in the month of Ramadan. What about Mondays and Thursdays

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

What about Mondays and Thursdays?

00:50:05--> 00:50:20

The Prophet of Allah says Allah Allah. Allah says whoever fasts one day, whoever fasts one day, nothing sooner fasting, whoever fasts one day for the sake of Allah, Allah will remove his face from jahannam at a distance of 70 years.

00:50:21--> 00:50:24

You guys, my ribs at 340

00:50:26--> 00:50:27

How easy is that?

00:50:29--> 00:50:30

How many of us fast

00:50:34--> 00:50:40

so I think just In short, you know, don't forget yourself. Don't forget your own Dean. Don't forget your own a bird.

00:50:43--> 00:50:50

Worry about others but also worry about yourself and make sure that you yourself are implementing that which you speak of.

00:50:51--> 00:50:57

Allah, Allah reward you. Thank you very much for having me here. So panicle llama be handy. Shadow Allah, Allah, Allah.
