Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. So, five common mistakes. Now, before I get into this list, I just want to clarify, I'm not making this list to criticize anyone or to criticize health thieves. I'm only doing this so we can be aware of things that we should watch out for, if we ever have to give a hook. But So number one, please, please, please, at least mentioned, one if from the Koran, and preferably a Hadeeth, as well listen, no matter how amazing your hotspot is, no matter how many amazing points you're making during your hotbar none of it will ever be as amazing as on. So the very least that we can do when we give a
hook is to at least include a single ayah from the Quran. And the Hadith as well. Listen, you know what that does, in the end of the day, it actually benefits you as a healthy because when you incorporate the Quran into your hotbar, you actually bring the Baraka the blessings of the Quran into your hotbar number two time, nobody's trying to listen to a 45 minute 50 minute, hour long clip, but most people tune out in 20 minutes or so. And the reality is that even this one of the prophets of Allah, Who I am sending them is to keep the hook by short. And actually, as we know, the hook above the process, that lamb was shorter than the follow up. And listen, I get it, I understand
that most people, this is their only chance that they're going to listen to an Islamic reminder or something. So I see the temptation that hopefully you'd have to make the football longer, but realize that it's just going to be detrimental to the hook by itself because people are simply going to tune out. So 15 minutes, 20 minutes, 25 minutes. Good enough. Number three, please dress well. Listen, I'm not saying that you have to wear like a thorough job, or a short walk to me or anything like that. You can wear pants and all that. But at least dress well look nice. If you look like you just rolled up out of bed and gave the hook the people are gonna have a tough time taking you
seriously. And the reality is that people will see you before they actually hear you. And a lot of times people will make a judgement about the content of your hook. But simply by the way, you look even we know that even the people attending the hood brother told us that we should put on our best clothes and come to the gym. mahatva. Don't worry about the Habib. Number four. Please don't yell. Nobody wants to be yelled at, especially for 45 minutes, you're gonna vary your tone, up and down. That's great hamdulillah. But nobody wants to sit there and be screamed at for 45 minutes or even 20 minutes. Number five, give people some action points. I can recall the number of times that I heard
a great hook but but at the end, the whole thing didn't leave us with anything to do. I remember hearing a great chutzpah on brotherhood, and I was like, Wow, this is great. At the end of the football. I felt like yeah, you know, we should have brotherhood and that's great. But there was no action. I didn't I didn't know how to implement what the Houthi was saying. So you know, you don't have to give like 10 action points or five action points. Even one action point can do it. So maybe something like you know, in to increase brotherhood, try to give more setups. Next time you see your brothers and sisters, give them set up. It's a simple action point. But that puts into practice the
hook but that you have just delivered to them. Now once again, I want to reiterate, I'm not trying to criticize anyone. This is simply so we can give better whispers and people can benefit from the time that they spend listening to Jehovah until next time. Insha Allah said on why they come to light or what I can do.
