He used to bring Selman fatty cod Amman

If you don't give them

and the Dow that people like him a giving and doing
or should I feel concerned about people like myself and yourself who's sitting comfortably in this comfortable chair on this comfortable chairs, not sharing the message of Islam with the rest of the people.
I don't know where to start.
I don't know where to begin. And I don't know how to end.
But let me tell you some new equity law.
Let me tell you about this man. Some of the Maharani He will send them
let me tell you about a pseudo law in some of Mahara he was setting them
come up the second mojari were Muslim was soon in a merger with tirmidhi min Haddadi Abu huraira Yamaha and
Yoko Ono sama Mohali, he was sent him to show the mercy that this man had had for all mankind. And for us in particular
on the Cooley Navy, in the western mooster.
For every profits for every messenger, a prophet that Allah has sent,
Allah gave him one day,
one day, that is guarantee that Allah would answer.
Allah Fatah, joku Navy.
And every person every messenger every problem ever came before me. He use his
will in the back to our Tisha attendee of Mati Yeoman.
as Mohammed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
kept my dour kept that particular dour for my oma for the Day of Judgment. Now he is concerned about us of the body He will send them he is telling us this is what I am wanting to do for you to keep that drive, not to destroy the race, not to make driving for and against anyone not to use for my own benefit. But to save you on the day of Yeoman pm Wilma Ensenada in Merton Lila Adam.
Allah Subhan Allah to Allah is saying in the Quran, all Mohammed we have not set you except being a mercy to all mankind, not to the Muslims.
No, lien are the mean. All the words to the whole world.
What if in
your own law in Surah Toba
la Khadija Kumara soon mean and foresee as easy Nana Hema, Annie, Holly's son Annie been meaning, Rahim
Allah subhanho wa Taala is said
and we have some very, very, that has come to a messenger among yourselves
as Ethan alima and
it grieves him It hurts him. It bothers him to see you go through difficult
and then he said, How do you some honey can be so anxious? He's so keen did many in the for the believers are offering kind pity and merged.
But the non Muslims who aren't here some of them may be a little bit eager to know about this messenger about this man. He said about the law said about him concerning his oma. But what about the rest of the people? He is also a mercy to all mankind.
to the children
and listen to this come at me so Hey, hello, how are you Muslim?
Have you heard of the Long Island
an Hassan the Allahu anhu came to the messenger of a law hasn't been a child.
And then the Messenger of Allah He picked up the child and he kissed him.
And then been hard is one of the people one of the tough.
One of the basic individuals who lived in the desert. And then who came to the messenger of the law come up is sort of euro for corn. Yeah, Mohammed, Elena, oh, Mohammed came up to us. Indeed, we have our poets, and we have our speakers to address you. And Allah said in Medina, Yuna Guna kununurra, in her garage.
He says, those individuals who are dressing your own Mohammed behind that behind closed doors, they do not have the correct understanding and
the attitude and the etiquettes to dress you.
when he saw the soul kissing this young boy, color in nearly a minute, whether the ash, they say I have 10 children, I have never kissed any one of them.
Never. So Panama,
never kissed a child, and you have 10 of them never. for Canada, some of the lohani he was sending them. mela you
mean now you're from now you whosoever does not show mercy to the others, mercy will not be showing to him. Mercy would not be showing to him. And this is a general term mercy when you're dealing with your family members, he is mercy for all mankind. But you also have mercy for all mankind, because of the law, what he was taught us what to do, how to approach people, how to talk to children, how to deal with women, how to deal with the men most how to deal with animals. So you, if you're not mercy for all of this, then you're not following the footsteps of Muhammad Sallallahu.
But you may say it's just for his own money, and only for his children. But no some of the last one he was he was also a mercy for animals. As you recall, in authentic hadith
that crosstourer life he had in Anna's Rasulullah sallallahu. He was setting them. He walked into the garden
mercy for all mankind. He walked into the garden.
And then some of the long run he was sitting as soon as he walked a camel walked in front in a camel rat to him. And then this little life on a new Manhattan gentleman who is the owner of this camel, who is the owner of this camel
for conifer terminal and saw a young man from the unsired he said our messenger overlords or he is Mike.
the Messenger of Allah said Allah to tequila, he had him to him. Don't you feel a loss of Hannah who was Allah concerning this animal? It talked to me and he told me that you are abusing it overloading it, overworking and you're not feeling it well.
Now if the Messenger of Allah is telling us how to deal with animals, emerging, dealing with the non Muslims, dealing with Muslims in general, dealing with our family members, dealing with the people who do not know anything about this
animal Now, a lot of people think a lot of people think that Islam does
not care about these things. But do you know, we all the first nation ever, in the history of humanity
had special department in the government to cater and care for all animals, for blind hands? For retired animals. No other nation ever had that mercy for animals. Now in the west where I live,
people think, Oh my god, they so advanced. They have Association on organizations for animals, animals, right? I'm telling you, this is snom gave the animals their way before the Western society, even thought about women being a human
also wants you to learn from the mercy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was
mercy with the people who are under us. People that work for us,
people that came from a different country,
and the people from the country itself that work under us Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us, because he is the mercy for all mankind. And he said some of the law while he was in them, do not overload them, do not overwork them. And if you have asked them to do extra work, then help them. So if you have this one who's working for you eight hours a day, and you want him to work nine hours, then you have to help him because in Islam that is not allowed in Islam is not allowed to abuse workers, to abused people who are under you. Because Islam came as came as a mercy not
as a system that I've used or abused as the week.
Now, how does this man some of the lohani, he was setting them down
with his own enemy,
with the people
who are eager to hurt him, or eager to do something that is inhumane to him some of the law while he was on them, when the messenger overlong Scylla lohani, he was setting them and you can imagine this little sort of like sitting back, enjoying the comfort of his family members. I say sitting behind him for the long run. And then these people they came to him, and they insulted the messenger overload insulted
Rasulullah Salallahu it he was sending them. He responded in a very positive, civilized way
of being a young lady, a young, aggressive passion about the Messenger of Allah and the messenger of Islam should respond back in a negative way. for autumn eyes, oh, I
did not talk like this. She said O Messenger overload. Did you not hear what she what they said to you? He said yeah, I said, Did you hear what I said to them?
More or less proficient in as he said gentleness was never added to anything except a beautifying. And Johnson as gentleness was never removed from something except that it made it ugly.
Also, if What if you learn
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not eager to destroy people, to destroy nations to destroy civilizations. And to her people. Rather, he said in the long run he was selling them was a mercy as we stated. And you can remember this once again. The hadith of eyeshadow, the Allahu Ana when she looked at him, he said Yara so long,
then anybody and this was after the Battle of
Did anyone ever? I'm sorry. Did you ever experience any situation like the situation of the date of
for kind of some memorial and he was in Nam?
naka de la de tamala pc I really experienced
four new people. The day that I came back from pi.
data presented Islam to the people of bi and they reject.
And I came walking from five with concerns and worries.
And I said I was walking and all of sudden gibreel calls me
and he says oh Mohammed
Aloha has heard the call the response of up
an aloha son an angel to respond to your call, and to do whatever you asked him to do this is the mountain, the angel of the mountains, ask him your request.
And the angel of mountain said, Yeah, Mohammed If you want, I can destroy the people of Makkah. Now keep in mind, they the people, they are the people who used to stop the Tao of Islam. They are the people who used to try to harm the messenger overlock. And now Allah is giving an opportunity and saying to him, if you want, we can destroy them all.
Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Nah.
I hope that Allah subhanho wa Taala will produce from their offspring from their children, a generation who will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. These are the enemy of Mohammed, some of them are these, these are not the friends and the brothers, and the people who wants to live with him civil with no, these are the enemies of the Messenger of Allah, and he is thinking dour. He's saying if I destroy these people, then their offspring will never see the light of the sun. They will never see the light of his snout. No, I will be patient with them. And I hope that their children would accept this.
And of course, their response. What did you learn
once that the people of Makkah accepted Islam,
and their children became Muslims, and because of them, and because of their children, you and I, perhaps we aren't Muslim. This new individuals who accepted Islam is because of that those individuals and that there are of Navy sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Also, if What if you learn
misconceptions about is
You talk to this non Muslim, the first thing that he says to you is, you think we are the evil we are evil.
The next person will say to you think we are going to hell. You think we are walking target. And this is not what Islam came for.
Rather Islam came to respect everyone.
See in Islam, we have
and non Muslims.
The non Muslims are three different categories.
And then that you gave him a covenants, you gave him a contract. You gave him a visa to be in your country. Your government might give him a lot them to be in that Muslim country. That non Muslim called Mohamed it is forbidden in Islam, to harm him or to bother him.
And remember, how does a man or the alarm
How does a man when the messenger of Allaah conquered the city of MK
she comes to the Messenger of Allah I see the audience you said yard I saw a lot. Ebner if not only the son of my mother wants to kill a man that I gave him my promise of safety and security. One lady, one single net a whole nation, not a state, not a government, one person gave that man safety and security and say you will be safe and that you are under my protection.
And then the Messenger of Allah said to that lady, yeah, amen. We secure and protect the person that you gave him your word.
What if we learn
the second category is a Jimmy
is a Muslim,
that who who lives with you and he is from the same country.
The same ruling applies on that individual. We respect them. We honor them.
And we live with them civil.
The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said to us
that anybody who harmed
which is the first category, come on visa and body anyone
khumba bothers at the meet will net smell the smell of paradise.
Imagine a mock Minh who thinks that he's doing a saver a service to Islam by harming the non Muslims who are living in the Muslim country. Rasul Allah the Messenger of Allah says to that individual, no, you will not go to Paradise because you harmed and then Muslim come up you say and Buhari, as this is stated in the handbook.
The third category of the non Muslim
is a non Muslim that is known how to be
a man or group of people who are attacking you, attacking your country, attacking you personally.
In this, the messenger over loss and if you have to fight, do not kill women.
Do not kill elderly people. Do not harm people in their place of worship.
And do not fight those who are not fighting you. Subhan Allah, this Deen of Islam,
even teaching us how to have mercy. And
with those who are fighting us.
And you remember, I will conclude this the evening Nice hand over to Anna
with a story of thermometer.
And then from the Arab, who killed some of those companions, the Messenger of Allah.
And this man who killed the companions were catch.
And they they brought him to the mystery to the place of worship of the Muslims. And they said, All missing you over law, this is the man who killed your companions. What should we do?
He went to him and he said to him,
what do you think I would do?
What do you think my response would be? As Amanda said, in tough to talk to them, if you kill
two different interpretation, if you kill me, you killed a man who killed some of your companions. Or if you kill me, you kill a man whose blood would not be wasted, my people will come after you.
And if you want Well, if you want me to ransom myself, I'll pay you let me go.
And if you send me free, I'll be grateful to you. And the Messenger of Allah walked away from him. And he said to the people in the masjid hear him well. Take care of him well, and treat him well.
Three days in a row with the same adage until Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, I'm gonna
go home, you are free.
And then this when he walked away from the Muslim abuse of the long run, he will send them and then he came back saying I showed you in the in the in the law, where I showed you under Mohammed, Osama, what is the lesson that we learn from this the lesson is
if we treat our enemies, like the Messenger of Allah treating them, they will all become Muslims. And they will all be a people of an Islam, like you and I, and they will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they will be the one who's spreading down. I will conclude
one last point.
And this, my brothers and sisters, I'm telling you this, though I mentioned this more than one face, I'm telling you this
because you live in in the Muslim countries
2003 in the City of Calgary
friend of mine caught me because there's a non Muslim in his house. There's a non Muslim lady who came to ask questions about Islam.
So we rushed because we want to give down when we want to give she had.
So this lady, she said, Mr. Reagan,
let me tell you about myself before you start telling me about some because I know everything about Islam.
She said I live in Muslim countries, not practicing Christianity, not knowing much about the Bible. I learned with Muslims. When I saw them going to the masjid five times a day I get jobs, I get jobs. And I say to my husband and to my children. Look at these people there. They look what the doing. Going to the messenger place of worship five times a day. We want to do the same thing.
So what they what she did, she encouraged her husband and her children to do Bible study.
Read the Bible from cover to cover.
She took them to a Bible school every Sunday. She came back Canada, not being satisfied with what she read.
To make a long story short, what if we learn?
everything you said about Islam is you said about Islam you and the people before you are beautiful, but I will never accept this.
I say Why? She said because I will never want to be like you.
You know what that means?
She said you if I'm afraid that if I accept this, I may be like some of you.
I don't want to be like,
I want to I love Islam that you have on the book. But the some that I saw in the Muslim country is not what I wanted.
Some hannema I asked myself this question, how many people how many non Muslim walked away from Islam because our behavior
see brothers and sisters, when you act in front of non Muslim they cannot differentiate between Islam the Pure religion of Allah and our behavior. They don't understand this Deen will always be pure and will never change. And we Muslims can be good Muslims can be excellent moments. Muslims could also be not that much or better, good Muslims. Minus he had to you. My advice to all of you is live is through your behavior.
Act like Muslims. Because when when you do something wrong, they don't say it or say it Obama did. They will say Islam is this. Islam said that Islam did this. When you do something good. They will say Islam did this stamp set that. So you are the messenger of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
This is what I have to send me a last panel with an excerpt from all of us was apparently audible as at the analyzer for salmonella mousseline when hamdu lillahi, Rabbil aalameen, Sara Marie
de la fellowship
and for traveling all the way from Canada for us to be enlightened with his very beautiful talk. inshallah, we'll take a couple of questions since we haven't got much time. And we shall take the question
first from Mike one from the other side please. non Muslim guests will be given first preference, if there are any non Muslim from the audience from any of the mics, then we will take that as the first question from any of the mics. Anyone from the sister side? Any non Muslim sisters? Who was she was a question
how do I talk to non Muslims that Islam is true, and religions false without offending the person? Okay, we'll take that question last. First, we're gonna come in the seal order. The first question from the Brotherhood.
salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My name is Mohammed Al masala. I'm from Somalia.
I'm chemical engineer living in Dubai.
My question to you, brother is, how did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dealt with the monaci opinion? The wisdom that he has dealt with motherfucking Second thing I just want to say to Brother use, that I'm very jealous about the hefty down payment you made for your house in Jannah. God bless you. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
All of us are jealous of rather useful.
in some Hannah law,
you only read
the seed that he planted.
This man is in his sleep.
He sleeps on his chair.
This man works
25 hours eight days a week if that ever existed.
So when you do his job, when we put the effort that he put forth, then yes. However, the Messenger of Allah Delta would the Muna 15
see the Messenger of Allah subhana wa tada in many places in the Quran. When
Allah subhana wa tada mentioned that you, your Mohammed, you have the ability to tell who is a monarch or not through, the way they talk,
the way they speak the way they carry themselves and then
Allah subhana wa tada told him that lists the names of the mono 15. And this was something exclusively for the Messenger of Allah, no one else.
How did he deal with them?
He dealt with them based on what he sees from them.
When I'm gonna live in Minnesota, we'll
set about the messenger overlay region and
the most honorable ones would cast the most displaced ones talking about the Messenger of Allah and Omar.
Yasser Allah, Allah need to finish this man he is a Muna.
The Messenger of Allah said no need him.
When the people want us to have a came back from the Battle of the book, and 80 of the Muna 15 came to the Messenger of Allah apologizing, that they couldn't make any due to a personal reasons. The messenger over law said I accept your apology. And whatever you have inside of you, this is between you and Allah. This is how the Messenger of Allah used to do with the moon African
American in the long run dealt with them in the similar manner and he is the man who used to say kwinana killer come in and we used to rely on the revelation to expose you.
But now, ladies, Elena minco in nama Nara, we will only judge you based on what you see from you. So if we see you behaving a certain way that we consider you
based on what you are, if we see you coming to the masjid, praying with you or Muslim men, and whatever you have in your heart is between you and Allah Subhana without now how should we deal as a Muslim with those type of people lack exactly the same way. We rely on what we see.
And we don't dig down.
And we only base
our judgment based on what was apparent to us. Allah, Allah Allah now zakarpattia we have to say if you could repeat your question
I still remember the question I can I can answer the question. Okay, good.
The sisters, the sisters asking how can I prove to the non Muslims that Islam is a true religion, Pure religion without offending them.
I have my own approach. And I think some of the people may agree or disagree with me in your dour unless this is an official stage. I mean, official debate in your dour, never, ever, ever attack non Muslim
never proved to them that they want and we write unless they asked a question.
What do you need? Do we present the beauty of Islam?
Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us in the Quran, that the Messenger of Allah was very aggressive, criticizing the iris of the machete keen the Imams of those people who used to worship them.
And then Allah said, What are the superlinear Runa mean do and in there? He said, Do not insult them, do not criticize them, leave them alone. So what did he do so long while he was in return? He was just giving down, showing the beauty of Islam, showing what Islam is all about, showing how we treat people. And what Islam says about he after, and this is it. But as soon as you attack him, he will take the defensive stance, and he will defend his religion, the religion of his forefathers, the religion of his parents, the religion of his community, so we should not attack anyone. They are sensible people, they can understand they can read between the line person. Sure. And leave it to
them. Hello, hello. Hello. Hello. We're going to take one last question from the other side. Mic number two, please.
My name is Doreen. I'm just a student.
My question is, why did Allah send Prophet Muhammad at the law? Why couldn't he send him at the first
Children's questions cares.
They really does because, you know, they don't filter things. They just say as pure as innocent as you can come up and it just hits you
see, my young man, young brother.
Everything that Allah does, he does it through Hickman and wisdom.
And that's why Allah subhana wa tada said, it wouldn't matter
He can't wait to call on a book and in molech, in Niger, anything out of the holy
Allah before the creation of Adam, the first of the prophets, he already told the angels that he will create mankind, people who were the successors of the successors on the earth. That was the before the creation of atoms, so the plan was already there. Now, why did Allah subhana wa tada chose Mohammed to be last, perhaps as we say, in the West, maybe Allah was saving the best for last. So the messenger over muscle alone wouldn't as a five the messengers of Allah, the top five messengers of fine
and the top of the five is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the Messenger of Allah said, he gave a parable, an example of the proverb, the messengers of a king. And he said, the misuse of a law is like a man who's building a house break on the top of another brick. And he finished the beautiful house except one brick. And the people who come around the house they will say, this is a beautiful house except that brick, he said, I am that brick. I am the brick that completed the building. Is this is the Dean of a loss of Hannah without a loss and Hannah was one of this way. He designed this plan. He planned this plan. And this is what he did. We're proud of Maya.
Thank you, Your
authorship for that. Beautiful time spent in in doing it with knowledge of the Quran and Hadith.
Every messenger pod that Allah has sent a lot gave him one day
this Deen of Islam, even teaching us how to have mercy
is through your behavior.
Oh Mohammed, we have not set you except being a mercy on the world.
