Brothers and sisters, welcome to

00:00:53--> 00:01:04

Episode 13 blast from the past Sierra in the 21st century, this Monday, the 21st of July 2014.

00:01:06--> 00:01:47

And we are in the last 10 days of Ramadan. And the last 10 nights of Ramadan. We almost have Hannah who attend and make us from amongst those that witness the night of power, I mean, brothers and sisters. Yesterday, we took many a lesson. And it was a continuation of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam becoming a prophet. Today we will take what I call part three of the session that we started two days ago. And part three marks Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becoming a messenger. Remember we said he first became a prophet, and that was with a camera.

00:01:48--> 00:02:05

And this is the view of the majority. And this is the correct opinion and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best because there is a minor difference of opinion between the scholars with regards to the first revelation was it Yeah, you are deaf. Or was it a Cora?

00:02:06--> 00:02:11

And context definitely shows that it was a crock.

00:02:14--> 00:02:42

So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became a nebby. And the Prophet was the Emperor. And he became a messenger sent to his people with the death in Sahih al Bukhari. It states that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, whilst I was walking along, I heard a voice from the heavens and I raised up my eyes, and lo, the angel that had appeared to me in here, which means what?

00:02:44--> 00:02:50

The first I have to be revealed was a crock. Because now we're going to hear

00:02:51--> 00:02:54

the revelation Yeah.

00:02:55--> 00:03:26

And in this narration, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying, I saw the angel that I saw in here are which means here, happened before this occasion. And we know that ikura was set to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he was in the cave of Hira, right, that's why I said context teaches us that the first idea or is revealed, was in the cave, a sort of loss of a lover and he says, I saw the same angel that I saw in here. And

00:03:27--> 00:03:36

he was sitting on a throne between the heaven and the earth, and I was struck with all on account of him and returned home again.

00:03:37--> 00:03:48

And he was saying Sallam fearful, he says, I was struck in all and returned home saying wrap me up, wrap me up. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed

00:03:49--> 00:03:52

Oh, you are closed.

00:03:53--> 00:04:12

arise at one yeah, even fancier. And the Lord do magnify what Rebecca for Kabir and right garments do purify with the abeka for him, and the next ayah and uncleanliness do Shang

00:04:14--> 00:04:20

So, this was what was revealed to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the opening Ayat of surah to death.

00:04:22--> 00:04:33

Now, this is an incident Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam becoming a messenger right, the scholars he became a messenger with these ayat and

00:04:34--> 00:04:38

Allah subhanho wa Taala saying First there are two marwari

00:04:40--> 00:04:57

mushrikeen inshallah we will come to that particular mention. For now we have an incident, and that entails Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being a messenger is no more a person who was blessed to see the angel of Revelation. Now he was sent

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

to his people specifically, and everybody else generally, because we know Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not a prophet that was specific to a specific nation like Musa alayhis salam, and irisa Allah, his Salah, he was sent to everybody. He was the CEO of all profits. And after him

00:05:24--> 00:06:17

Do you and I walk in his footsteps, continuing the legacy of prophethood and inshallah we'll discuss that a bit later. But as per this incident, we have lessons what are the lessons that we learned? Firstly, brothers and sisters, we learn how to be selective in our efforts, when we want to get through to people, articles Allah tala, when we want to get through to people. This is a great lesson that we learn here. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala made him a prophet then opened up the means for him to realize exactly what happened to him. And revelation has stopped, and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became sad, anticipating the revelation now, wishing for it to happen. Remember, we

00:06:17--> 00:06:29

discussed this in previous episodes. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala now brings back revelation. Right? This is being selected. This is allowing a person

00:06:30--> 00:06:46

time to contemplate, to analyze, and in many cases, brothers and sisters when we are calculated in how we get the message across. Sometimes giving a person some space allows them to realize the truth for themselves.

00:06:48--> 00:06:56

And this is a great hour, it's a great hour, for a person to experience realization, rather than being spoon fed

00:06:57--> 00:06:59

is a more powerful

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


00:07:04--> 00:07:05

And even in education,

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

we are taught that when we ask a question to our students, and the student, blurts out an answer, instead of saying wrong and correcting the students straightaway pause for a while.

00:07:20--> 00:07:27

Because as the mind of the child is answering, the child is purposely thinking as well,

00:07:28--> 00:07:51

purposely recalculating, recalibrating, and in many instances, they will come to the right answer themselves and correct themselves and say, No, no, no, this is the answer. This, this happens to us when we give it a chance. Not so. Right. And this is better for us than somebody saying, No, this is the answer. You're more likely to forget the latter, that the former

00:07:52--> 00:08:11

right. So we learn from this, this whole concept of being calculated methodical, being selective. Allah subhanho wa Taala could have made him a messenger from the outset. But maybe my prophets experienced the angel experience the phenomenon and let him go to his wife. And then Allah inspired the meeting with wa.

00:08:12--> 00:08:19

And the message you received from your people will chase you. So now he has grounding.

00:08:20--> 00:08:37

It's not so strange to him. And we know that he anticipated the revelation, because he was sad when it stopped. Now it came back to him. He's not going to receive it the way he received it the first time. And don't forget, receiving it the second time making him a messenger is something extra.

00:08:38--> 00:08:46

Right? It's like the on button has been pushed down. Everything's ready. The cameras are set, the lights are set, but we waiting for

00:08:47--> 00:09:05

the button to be pressed. Right? This is it. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the setting was set. Now what was left was the button being pressed, and he was more prepared to receive the on button. Imagine if it came from the word God never seen an angel before given

00:09:06--> 00:09:22

a mighty instruction and then facing his people without having any introduction, any foundation. Right? This is mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala even in how he delivers prophet Prophethood subhanho wa Taala

00:09:26--> 00:09:36

We also learned from this My dear brothers and sisters a point I highlighted several times yesterday. Please excuse my voice so Pamela it's being overused but it's the month of Ramadan. It has to.

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

I can't afford to restless right.

00:09:44--> 00:09:46

We also learn

00:09:47--> 00:09:50

a point that I cited you all yesterday which was

00:09:54--> 00:09:55

every time

00:09:56--> 00:09:57

the person

00:09:59--> 00:09:59

is as

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

Important as the point

00:10:02--> 00:10:07

and in some cases, the person is more important than the point.

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

profited was important.

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

And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam as a human being was important as well.

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

That's why Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:21--> 00:10:22

revealed to him

00:10:24--> 00:10:27

and got him to the phase of being a messenger

00:10:28--> 00:10:28


00:10:29--> 00:10:32

a way based on divine wisdom

00:10:33--> 00:10:41

in the methodical way that we've just described, because if it didn't happen that way, he might have been broken salallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:10:42--> 00:10:45

The point is Prophethood, right.

00:10:47--> 00:11:07

Excuse me, the point is Prophethood, but he's a human being as well. And he carries some relevance and importance. He's a human being. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is merciful, right? We brothers and sisters, sometimes, not sometimes, many times, especially the hour.

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

We respect the point and the point should be respected. But we don't respect the person.

00:11:20--> 00:11:30

How many times have we upset somebody giving them down? How many times have we belittle them giving them the power? How many times have we spoken to them at the wrong time?

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

It wasn't the right time to say it.

00:11:36--> 00:11:40

At this time, the person is more important than the point this is not the time.

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

But we rarely look at these things.

00:11:46--> 00:11:48

We don't look at these things.

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

Sometimes we're giving data to our parents.

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

And we speak to them in an unbefitting way.

00:11:57--> 00:12:00

A way that contradicts how Islam asked you to speak to them.

00:12:02--> 00:12:09

You've made the point more important than the person in fact, this is a misrepresentation of the point. If you disrespect your parents,

00:12:10--> 00:12:21

when you see a fellow Muslim, he doesn't have his beard, maybe his his his lower garment is below his ankles, maybe she our sister is not observing the hijab, she's moving around.

00:12:24--> 00:12:25

As if she has a bottle of perfume.

00:12:29--> 00:12:34

And we propagate the Islamic message, belittling the person,

00:12:37--> 00:12:47

we forget that the person is as important than the point. And in so many cases, the person is more important than the point and yes, in some cases, the point is more important than the person.

00:12:48--> 00:12:56

But our problem is, in all our cases, the point is more important than the person we will argue and argue and argue and argue

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

and not back down

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


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

animosity enters the hearts of the two people.

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

Sometimes a

00:13:07--> 00:13:10

you know, he's not understanding you.

00:13:11--> 00:13:24

Just accept it and say, clearly, inshallah, let me contemplate it. Perhaps tomorrow we can have the discussion again, I've heard what you've had to say. You've said some good points. You might not agree with him. Right. But we say

00:13:25--> 00:13:48

you know, Hellas diplomacy. You've said some points in Sharla. The good points let me ponder over these points. And he will go home and ponder himself as one over what you said. And tomorrow you'd have a more amicable discussion. Rather than you push he pushes, he pushes harder, you push harder, and you keep on doing it until you've burnt all bridges. You bet the person and you cannot give him down tomorrow.

00:13:51--> 00:14:00

Wisdom and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us to invite to his way with wisdom Bill achema well known wherever not just anymore ever and has an

00:14:01--> 00:14:18

even when you are telling somebody about the Hellfire and so on and so forth, do it in the way that is worthy of the message being shared. You speaking about the Quran, you speaking about Quranic instruction, you speaking

00:14:19--> 00:14:27

that which is the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and that revealed to him by Allah subhanho wa Taala it has an aura and haber

00:14:29--> 00:14:30

surrounding it.

00:14:32--> 00:14:47

And we remember the order that it has, when we get ourselves in the business of passing on this information. This is important brothers and sisters. We also learned this from this point, the way Allah subhanho wa Taala shows how he would

00:14:48--> 00:15:00

make Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a messenger and how he would instruct him to go to these people. Meeting what are called before being married to a DJ and all the experiences before

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

Before we spoke about how he was a shepherd, this was part of him. Part of his training, how Allah subhanho wa Taala planned for him to be the one to save the Quran for bloodshed when it came to them rebuilding the camera, and the whole issue as well, five years before prophecy, this was an incident as well, selective and methodical.

00:15:23--> 00:15:51

As the point is important, the person is important as well remember this, my dear brothers and sisters. We also learned my dear brothers and sisters from this the importance of being gradual in bringing things into effect. This is very important. This is from the foundations of the Sharia at Raj, if you look at fifth, and the foundations of the scholars say from the foundations of fifth is at the root, fifth, tertiary

00:15:54--> 00:16:02

is a form. There's a gradual formation, things come about shape and fishing. They come about in

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


00:16:06--> 00:16:07


00:16:08--> 00:16:10

methodical and calculated bursts.

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

The Quran was revealed in how many years 23 years just over 23 years.

00:16:18--> 00:16:36

And even the Tao of Rasul we just discussed relating this from how he became a prophet, right, gradually, gradually, being a shepherd, dealing with the Quraysh, seeing the angel in Hera, then seeing Baraka then anticipated revelation, then becoming a message gradual, right, there was a deluge.

00:16:39--> 00:16:55

There was a methodical approach, right? And we see this also in the Tao of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, as we'll come to learn, first, the devil was in private for three years, then he was commanded to go full out, but go full out, but not expose those who accepted Islam during the three years,

00:16:56--> 00:17:03

when the dollar was private, so not to cause harm to befall them, you see, methodical, calculated,

00:17:04--> 00:17:12

remembering that many times the person is as equally active as the point and sometimes even more important than the point,

00:17:13--> 00:17:29

this methodical way. And this was the this was the dry as we've seen, and this was the training of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam as well. And why not when this was the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala is revelation. Look at alcohol, alcohol became Haram in stages.

00:17:30--> 00:17:57

Fasting became as I was calling him say, became compulsory in stages first was Ashura to foster Ashura that was compulsory. Then, the month of Ramadan became compulsory and Ashura was abrogated. It became a Sunnah. But the month of Ramadan became compulsory into two stages. The first stage was you had a choice, you could fast or you could give or you could feed a poor person.

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

As we had the image region suratul Asia

00:18:01--> 00:18:02


00:18:06--> 00:18:08

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:18:12--> 00:18:14

momento por la, la,

00:18:16--> 00:18:30

la ku in contempt Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala made the month of Ramadan, compulsory canceling out Ashura, but when he made it compulsory at the beginning, you had the choice as this I this is explained.

00:18:31--> 00:18:47

You could fast or you could leave fasting but you have to feed the poor person, either this or that, but Allah subhanho wa Jalla says one two Sumo highroller come but if you fast it's better for you. Look, you being encouraged to why because it's going to become compulsory.

00:18:48--> 00:19:02

And then in the same Surah Surah Baqarah a few Ayah doubt Allah subhanho wa Taala says for when shahida Musharraf so whoever sees the month you must you have to fast it right no more choice it's canceled.

00:19:03--> 00:19:09

It's canceled having a choice now is not an option. It happened in stages, alcohol in stages as well.

00:19:10--> 00:19:14

Right? It happened in stages. This is well known and documented in the books of IQ.

00:19:16--> 00:19:17


00:19:19--> 00:19:23

you are not allowed to go to the prayer whilst in a state of intoxication.

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

How many prayers do you have in a day?

00:19:28--> 00:19:37

So how much time do you have to drink? You're getting detoxed. You're getting detox then Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed

00:19:38--> 00:19:52

Oh, yes, I know Nicaraguan hungry when they asked you about alcohol and gambling confy Hema is when Kabir say in them both is a great woman if you're only NES and this benefit in it, what if muma

00:19:53--> 00:19:57

but the sin is greater than the benefits, food for thought, go and think

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

the present

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

is important than the point at this moment in time.

00:20:05--> 00:20:07

If we just drop it on them,

00:20:09--> 00:20:38

there could be the harm could be greater. Right? And then Allah subhana wa tada later revealed in the Mahabharata al maseeh rowallan Saba when Islam orange, assuming Emily shavon, fetch daddy boo Lana come to flee home, that you have to stay away from alcohol. Stay away from it be far away from it. The instruction was powerful, but there was an introduction for that powerful instruction to be received and received. Well, we know that

00:20:40--> 00:20:56

when this ayah was revealed, they were pouring alcohol, right? Some of the books of Tafseer mentioned this, that there were streams of alcohol flowing in Medina. And when it rained for years after that the smell would come out of the ground. There were those who who, who puke it out.

00:20:57--> 00:21:07

Right here when we when you cause yourself to vomit, they cause themselves to vomit. This is this is when this is how para la is in Korea.

00:21:08--> 00:21:15

And in Korea, this is supernova This is the commander of Allah I'm upon it, but look how Allah subhanho wa Taala gradually brought me

00:21:16--> 00:21:30

even look at the Quranic message before hegira to Medina and the message after if you look at the Quranic message before he Jura it didn't speak about Salah being compulsory didn't speak about

00:21:31--> 00:21:45

in the way that it was in Medina. Right and will do and Zakah and fast in the month of Ramadan. And hedge hatches later on in Medina, many years after migration.

00:21:46--> 00:21:49

The revelation in Mecca was all about

00:21:50--> 00:22:12

correcting false beliefs and inviting people towards the heat and breaking the shackles of shift that they were changing. Because they said they were upon what the fathers were apart. That was the message Allah subhanho wa Taala was being methodical calculated.

00:22:14--> 00:22:18

What's more important that they leave alcohol that they believe in Allah

00:22:19--> 00:22:34

if you have to heat then all your deeds can stand without to heat nothing's gonna stand so what's the point? We need to learn from this brothers and sisters in our data sometimes we all over the place we invite somebody to something and there's bigger things that need to be addressed first.

00:22:35--> 00:22:36


00:22:37--> 00:22:41

Now this doesn't mean that you and I when we become practicing now you know we

00:22:42--> 00:23:05

this timescales before something becomes haram for us you know it's okay I started practicing today. So now maybe after three years, a clock will take and and this will become haram for me at the moment I'm allowed No, it doesn't mean that you have to believe what is halal to be halal, and what is haram to be haram but you as a person if you know if you know that if I am going to knock a guy

00:23:07--> 00:23:08

on his beard when he's not praying.

00:23:10--> 00:23:12

I'm not going to get him to pray. So what do you do?

00:23:13--> 00:23:16

Do you knock him about his beard or you bring him to Salah

00:23:18--> 00:23:22

it's not that you don't believe having a beard is compulsive. But this is from being wise.

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

and nine times out of 10 if not 10 if you get him to be regular with Salah himself or grow his beard

00:23:31--> 00:23:35

there is what I'm saying. We learn this from here brothers and sisters May Allah grant us the understanding.

00:23:37--> 00:23:48

Also when possible masala so I was saying this was the Quranic message. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was his character was the Quran. So when he said more either than Jebel to Yemen as a copy

00:23:50--> 00:23:51

as a diary

00:23:53--> 00:23:54

as an alum

00:23:56--> 00:24:05

towards the end of his life sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What did he say? He says, when you go there, a group of people from the book are going to come to come to you.

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

For the ovum, Illa, Allah Allah Allah Allah

00:24:11--> 00:24:25

Muhammad, Abdul Rasul Allah and Muhammad Rasul Allah, when they come to you, invite them towards the heat for in Alpha Omega b danek. And then when they accept this message of yours,

00:24:27--> 00:24:41

for whom and Allah for Allah, Allah him Hamza Salatin v Coolio Meanwhile, then tell them that Allah has made compulsory upon them, five daily prayers for a new home

00:24:43--> 00:24:46

when they accept that first beautiful

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

woman avenir you afinia motorolla

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

then inform them that Allah subhanho wa Taala has made compulsory upon them Sokka which we take from their rich

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

We give to their poor.

00:25:03--> 00:25:13

You see, it's been gradual, right? Does it mean soccer wasn't compulsory? Of course it was. Does it mean Salah wasn't compulsory? Of course it was. But

00:25:15--> 00:25:42

if they didn't believe, what was the point of them performing Salah, and if they weren't performing Salah what is the point of this? Sometimes you have a you have a person who has the capacity to take everything. Yes, then, and this is wisdom, you know the person that's why we don't paint everybody with the same brush. You don't speak to forest and the forest, how did you get this person to accept Islam, and you take that method and you're going to apply to a prospect that you have in front of, you know, because his presence is different than your person.

00:25:44--> 00:26:06

And it's, it's worship of Allah for you to contemplate to think, how am I going to work out my approach with this person? What's the best way? Just like how when you want to borrow, you know, borrow money from someone? Does anybody need somebody to tell them you need to think of the right approach? No, you know, because it's money. You start thinking how you know, he likes ice cream, I take him for ice cream.

00:26:07--> 00:26:16

When he's having that, you know, thick chocolate creamy ice long Italian, you know, and by the way, I sent you borrow $10,000 he's most likely to say yes.

00:26:19--> 00:26:27

This is being wise. We learned this as well brothers and sisters. And this we also learn for our own selves. In terms of our own piety. How many times do we see people Subhanallah

00:26:28--> 00:26:30

they hear a talk

00:26:31--> 00:26:34

you know the mind boosting talks we spoke about they come

00:26:35--> 00:26:58

here I talk importance of reading Quran they charged up I'm going to go home I would read the Quran every day one Jews, Holocaust they start first day one Jews next day, one Jews but a lot of effort. Why push upon, you know, his meter switch, his signal flashed this guy's really good associate that's gonna come to you now the next day. Right?

00:27:01--> 00:27:24

And he's going to pressure you so you manage to reduce the next day, the third day. It must read came and suparna law there was two words that you missed. Two words were completed after Mahara. You missed your target. The next day in three quarters, the next day, three quarters the next day just managing the quarters. The following day, two is Aftermath

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

then half and so on and so forth until burnout, burnout you will graduate so that's what I'm gonna pray every day if you have the capacity or having to relearn but you got to ask yourself first what is my capacity don't just get all excited emotional charged up at the coke bottle you know SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE gassing what happens it doesn't last it doesn't guess like that for

00:27:52--> 00:27:52


00:27:54--> 00:27:58

it doesn't the guests then subsides Don't be a coke bottle.

00:28:01--> 00:28:09

So you start so as to have maybe the first week the next week God week. And then week after one month non existent until next Ramadan

00:28:12--> 00:28:37

and Subhanallah you even forgot that you stopped doing it. When Robin came the following he said Subhanallah you know I was doing it last year. Cuz that's what happens. That's what happens, isn't it? You laughing because you know human nature you burn out you have to be gradual to have good Koran. So that shouldn't be gradual. Yes, the compulsory things, just do it.

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

No questions asked.

00:28:41--> 00:29:16

But when we increasing our piety, do it in a gradual formation. Be methodical be calculated start off with once a week, when you see yourself naturally performing it. Make it twice a week. When you get to a stage where you naturally performing twice a week, maybe thrice a week. Same for tahajjud. Even with the Quran, if you can only do half a page, do half a page, but do it every day. until Allah puts Baraka in your action in half a page. You have only 15 minutes a day, or 10 minutes a day. You could only read half a page now Subhan Allah, in 10 minutes, I can read a page, I've become better.

00:29:18--> 00:29:33

Then read a page. Then in 10 minutes panel, I can do two pages now. It's taken me five minutes to do a page I still have 10 minutes or so I can do two pages now to two pages. You see what happens? You gradually grow yourself. So you don't experience burn out.

00:29:34--> 00:29:56

We learned this from how Allah subhanho wa Jalla wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam a prophet and Quran wasn't revealed in a day. Rome wasn't built in a day, right? 23 years 23 years, even you and I, when Allah put us in the in the bellies of our mother's foot we were at 40 day intervals.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

You think Allah couldn't make us be born at

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

Just like that couldn't find a good, yes, but Allah chose 40 days as a fluid 40 days as a hanging piece of cloth, a hanging cloth 40 days as

00:30:13--> 00:30:17

a piece of flesh that resemble something chewed 40 4040

00:30:20--> 00:30:23

so that you set up Subhana Allah Allah,

00:30:24--> 00:30:45

Allah created us knows us better than we know ourselves. And the way Allah revealed to us is the biggest lesson of who we are, and what our capacities are, for Allah could have revealed the Quran in one go, he could have made his prophet a messenger immediately. subhanho wa Taala. But we need to ponder brothers and sisters. The problem is we don't use our brains enough

00:30:46--> 00:30:50

for the right things, for the better things we don't

00:30:51--> 00:31:05

even know these lessons I'm telling you, this is not something that you know only scholars can deduce anyone who sat down and understood it would say Subhan Allah. Allah has given us an intellect Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a prophet to all of us, not only to the scholars

00:31:07--> 00:31:09

sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:31:10--> 00:31:21

I have a talk online visited is a very short reminder it was done in this Medina machine this machine here as a reminder, it's called burning or burn, burn in or burn out. Rome wasn't built in a day

00:31:23--> 00:31:35

burn in or burn out Rome wasn't built in a short reminder about under 10 minutes or eight minutes. Listen to it inshallah. By Allah subhanho wa Taala said to us Rasul Allah, Allah he was making him a messenger come

00:31:37--> 00:31:38

home from

00:31:39--> 00:31:42

Allah told him to stand up and convey

00:31:43--> 00:31:54

now, I was calling his talents that confer and Veera was just like a karate in that it was not specific to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and able to be removed, we left the lab

00:31:56--> 00:32:39

but we read the Quran, the Quranic message applies to everybody and not to the specific circumstance that the ayah was revealed in. So for example, you know, a person can say ikura was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becoming a prophet. So the importance of reading is specific to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam not for us, we say no, it's for everybody. And likewise confirm that our and propagation, the instruction was to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the owner of Mohammed salallahu alayhi wa sallam as per the teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It wasn't specific that he does the Dawa, alone. No. And that's why he nurtured the Sahaba and that's

00:32:39--> 00:32:46

why he said more it bingeable to Yemen, why would you send them if they never had to be propagated and do ads and invite us to Allah?

00:32:47--> 00:32:52

And those who understand the Sharia, why did they make dua for even a best of lahoma photography? Did

00:32:54--> 00:33:03

our law give him the understanding of religion and the knowledge of the Quran? Why did you make this dog for him? Why did you make draft for the memory of Abu huraira

00:33:05--> 00:33:15

to memorize 1000s of a hadith and be a prisoner of hiding in the era of the Sahaba and then Allah subhanho wa Taala inspires Eman, Missouri

00:33:16--> 00:33:21

hashmatullah la from the era of the tablet to be a pillar of the center as well.

00:33:22--> 00:33:48

Right. That's why that's why the orientalist when they want to damage the sooner they try and damage Abu huraira or the Allah while I shadowed the Allahu Allah and the members of the from the tiberi. These are three pillars that that the sooner rests upon. Yes, they are the narrator's but you understand what I'm saying there? They were the ones known for many revenue for many generations and members over he was known for his application with regards to

00:33:49--> 00:33:52

the prophetic tradition during the time of the Tabby.

00:33:56--> 00:34:12

Why would all this happen if the instruction was specific to Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam and this is where you all come in my dear brothers and sisters, you have to ask yourself now, where am I at propagating the message of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam you don't have to go to Medina as we established the other day.

00:34:13--> 00:34:23

You know, La ilaha illa Allah, you know, there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah, you should know the pillars of it, you should know its conditions, this is knowledge everyone should know.

00:34:24--> 00:34:30

Right? And you invite to it invite to that which you know, ballyhoo me

00:34:32--> 00:34:35

message of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:34:36--> 00:34:37


00:34:39--> 00:34:48

to that which I have taught even if it's one eye, as long as you know it, and you know that, you know, this is very important brothers and sisters, because we have four types of people.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

We have a person who knows and knows that he knows. This is an alum, a scholar, a person who is not he doesn't have to be a scholar of everything but a scholar in turn.

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Have that which he knows.

00:35:03--> 00:35:04

And then we have a person

00:35:05--> 00:35:08

who doesn't know and doesn't know that he doesn't know.

00:35:11--> 00:35:15

Somebody why the eyes rolling? That wasn't Latin though. That was English, by the way.

00:35:16--> 00:35:22

Why is rolling? He doesn't know something, let me reword it. He doesn't know. But he thinks that he knows How's that?

00:35:24--> 00:35:31

Better by using my ears to my ear, which we'll get to it shortly a long way for him.

00:35:33--> 00:35:45

So the second person is a person who doesn't know but thinks that he knows this is a dangerous person. This is dangerous. This is compounded ignorance, not just in their ignorance more compounded.

00:35:46--> 00:35:53

Why? Because what you're going to teach this person he doesn't know. But he thinks that he knows what you what you're going to teach him. You're going to keep on arguing.

00:35:54--> 00:36:02

Because he thinks that he knows the miskeen the poor guy thinks he knows but he doesn't know. You tell him brother. This is so crazy black.

00:36:03--> 00:36:14

Brother, it's great. This is black. And I know what that is black. So you don't know what that is black kids gray says no, it's black. What's gonna happen? gray, black, gray, black, gray black, Mashallah.

00:36:16--> 00:36:20

And then you have the third person, third person is a person

00:36:21--> 00:36:27

who doesn't know and knows that he doesn't know. This is the person who gives power to you.

00:36:30--> 00:36:33

This is the person who gives power to you. And then you have the fourth person

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

who knows but doesn't know that he knows.

00:36:40--> 00:36:45

You get people like this. They know something, but they don't know that they know it when you tell them to go Oh, yes, I you know, I used to know this.

00:36:47--> 00:36:51

I know this actually thought about this. But I didn't know that I knew that.

00:36:56--> 00:37:12

That's the fourth person. Right? You should be a person who knows and knows that he knows in that once you give that power to do not invite to misguidance invite to guidance. Go to a scholar. This is my information. Is it correct? If I say this?

00:37:13--> 00:37:22

No, don't say this. Say that. Sometimes what you're saying is correct. But the words that you use will cause a problem a scholar will correct it for you. tweak it for you will tweak it for you.

00:37:24--> 00:37:58

Right, and then when you set go and invite to it. You have to do our brothers and sisters. We the legacy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been placed on our shoulder some people more than others, depending on your knowledge. Ask yourself Have I ever attempted to invite towards La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, have I ever attempted to bring people to Salah? Have I ever attempted to correct the problems of Zakah? In my society, even if it's in taking a person to a scholar and say teach him? about Zika?

00:38:00--> 00:38:03

Have I ever have I ever asked yourself?

00:38:04--> 00:38:05

Are you true?

00:38:06--> 00:38:12

In terms of you being an element that carry that should carry the legacy of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam or not?

00:38:13--> 00:38:16

Do you sponsored our initiatives? This is where muting the hour.

00:38:17--> 00:38:22

And there's many ways to the hour, even if you stick a simple message at the bottom of your email.

00:38:23--> 00:38:31

Many of us write a lot of things there, right? Beware, do not print this email, look after the environment. If you print this at your own risk.

00:38:32--> 00:38:37

That's good. also put an ad our message there. And by the way, there is no one worthy of worship besides one.

00:38:39--> 00:38:40

Why not?

00:38:41--> 00:38:42

Is there any law against this?

00:38:43--> 00:38:46

disclaimer? Just letting you know.

00:38:47--> 00:38:56

Something that I know and know that I know. There is no one was your worship besides one. Your job is to convey not to convert Alhamdulillah you've conveyed

00:38:57--> 00:39:00

you've left somebody something to read that.

00:39:01--> 00:39:10

If you have if you're a doctor, you have a reception, stick some material, at least at reception instead of useless magazines. We're going to read

00:39:12--> 00:39:16

right? So the waiting for the appointment, give them something to read.

00:39:17--> 00:39:18

Give them something to read.

00:39:20--> 00:39:20

This is

00:39:21--> 00:39:25

your neighbor. If you can't speak, drop the pamphlet in the letterbox.

00:39:27--> 00:39:34

They might throw it away. Nine times out of 10 but one time out of 10 they might read it 20 years down the line.

00:39:35--> 00:39:38

And events will happen in their life and they will remember your pamphlet

00:39:40--> 00:39:56

and they will knock your door and say you know one day you did that. Tell me about it. Or lie the other day we just had a new Muslim Kay event here I gave a talk to the new Muslims and the stories Allahu Akbar. And in the new Muslim Academy which I'm a part of online. Hemant

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

weekly was new Muslims.

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

Weekly well I you know what i'm so fascinated about how did you come to Islam? What was your tipping point?

00:40:11--> 00:40:27

What are the some of the most amazing stories? You cannot help but believe Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah Hi, some people it was just this, somebody left a card was Surah Fatiha and they read, Praise be.

00:40:28--> 00:41:02

All praises belong to Allah, the Lord of the worlds who's the most forgiving, the most compassionate, the Most Merciful. Just that introduction. For some reason, they felt this feeling. I have been introduced to the Lord of the worlds I need to study this more, Allahu Akbar, I'm sitting here thinking Subhan Allah Wa, mid level and Medina. When Allah guides, no one can be scheduled job is to convey not to convert. It's Allah who puts the guidance that pushes people over the edge

00:41:04--> 00:41:25

from the realm of darkness, over the edge into the realm of light. Right, our job is to convey so it was not specific to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Cora was it now we're talking about the gradual approach, even the colossal Allahu alayhi wa sallam at the beginning as a last instruction to him was gradual.

00:41:26--> 00:41:45

As we said it started in secret. Imagine three years in secret secret. He started with who? Khadija Ravana his wife, the first person to accept Islam, Allahu Akbar. So the sisters are

00:41:46--> 00:41:47

doing takbeer is where they are.

00:41:52--> 00:41:53

The first person to accept Islam

00:41:55--> 00:41:57

and then water kabhi Nova

00:41:59--> 00:42:23

the first man to accept Islam. Yes, there's a slight difference of opinion because he passed away very early, or soon after he met Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam but he was a support and advocate of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah knows best Baraka Nova, who took Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to him. De Janeiro the Allahu Allah, female group two men group is still coming.

00:42:28--> 00:42:30

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:42:32--> 00:42:35

or he warned us against insulting watercop in Nova.

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

He said Do not insult him for indeed I've seen that he has a paradise or to paradise, Allahu Akbar.

00:42:43--> 00:43:17

And this is the evidence the scholars used to say he was the first man to accept Islam. Then Abubakar robiola, who and what will make you understand who Abu Bakr was his closest friend, and then Addy Ravi, Allah Who is the first boy to accept Islam, the cousin of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then they even haritha the slave boy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the first lady to accept Islam. Charity begins at home. A lot revealed to His Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam later on when when the message was supposed to when the message was supposed to.

00:43:20--> 00:43:26

Oh, Ellie, I told you that first that'd be my first that'd be my tumor was for the for the message to become open.

00:43:27--> 00:44:09

Right confianza was him becoming a messenger and to start in secret, first that we met tomorrow. Ricky was the message through Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the desire to become open. And also the another instruction which was given to him when the devil became open was actually erotica. lockerby that start with the closest to you. Charity begins at home. So even in opening the era he was supposed to start with those closest and even in in secret that our he started with those who are closest to him. Khadija, Abubakar Ali zaytoven haritha ob Allahu anhu as many brothers and sisters, another point for you to benchmark yourself

00:44:10--> 00:44:15

against because this these are lessons fippa Sierra, where are we and our

00:44:16--> 00:44:19

and our families are with our families.

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

Where are we?

00:44:25--> 00:44:30

How many of us are trying with our families?

00:44:31--> 00:44:39

The that's the first hour, the first hour, you get it right at home. It's going to be right out Swain Sharma get it right at home. This is the

00:44:40--> 00:44:42

testing ground.

00:44:45--> 00:44:47

Would you persevere with those at home,

00:44:48--> 00:44:59

not to push them away. Persevere with them in the right way as upon the vv citations I shared with you earlier in a way that doesn't burn bridges but builds bridges. It might take you a long time.

00:45:00--> 00:45:09

The Tao of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was how long? How long? 23 years 23 years brothers and sisters,

00:45:10--> 00:45:33

and it was a journey. It was a journey. Today we do that when we want instant results haste. We spoke yesterday about always being in haste, instant results we give up. And we'll discuss this we discuss this because this concept of given give giving up, it's a mental issue. We'll discuss it just now. So we neglect our families, our children, Where are they from?

00:45:34--> 00:45:43

We encouraging our friends to set out to stay close, but our children are closer. Have we gotten them to go to the masjid? Where are we from this?

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Go and fusa Kumara alikoum Naira.

00:45:51--> 00:45:55

protect yourselves and your families from the Hellfire

00:45:56--> 00:46:05

this dour to your families, you will be questioned about my dear brothers and sisters, everybody here in the audience and everybody listening at home, you will be questioned.

00:46:06--> 00:46:19

You will be sinful if you did not deliver. Allah has made you a messenger to your families when he told you to protect yourself and your families from the Hellfire, your wife, your spouse, as well.

00:46:21--> 00:46:23

This is an Amana and trust upon us.

00:46:25--> 00:46:43

So we did a lot of benchmarking today. Right? This is important. And that's what we're here for. We're here to grow ourselves, right? adult and youth development. let's develop. Let's grow let's emerge. Let's take ourselves to the next chapter. You don't want to be version one your whole life, right? Even windows now is Windows eight.

00:46:45--> 00:46:58

And it's an app. Right? It became an app. So they moved it became an app. It evolves. You can't be version one. You want to be MS DOS, your whole life. Some some of the kids don't even know what MS DOS

00:47:01--> 00:47:06

disk operating system Microsoft, as it was at the beginning windows 3.1.

00:47:08--> 00:47:09

You have to evolve.

00:47:11--> 00:47:13

People are playing Xbox three, is it three or four? What is it?

00:47:14--> 00:47:18

For one? You are one you haven't evolved?

00:47:21--> 00:47:24

The Xbox One is the latest of Horus, I haven't evolved.

00:47:28--> 00:47:32

You have to evolve you. When are you going to still remain

00:47:33--> 00:47:35

upon being average?

00:47:37--> 00:47:56

Until when? Until when are you going to let yourself be average you have to evolve brothers and sisters and your evolvement involves you causing your family and those within your sphere of influence to evolve as well. Right? Even if it means you tell them you know there's a procedure or a program after a week, let's go pray Salah in this Masjid. This is

00:47:57--> 00:48:01

this is you doing your duty, but somehow you're texting other people you haven't told your father

00:48:03--> 00:48:12

texted your friends right? Did you tell your father? Did you tell your mother? Did you tell your brothers? Did you tell your sisters? Did you tell your relatives?

00:48:15--> 00:48:26

we neglect and we don't know. This is a problem. We learn from the data of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. How not to we also learn brothers and sisters. How to

00:48:27--> 00:48:42

Be diligent when we form our organizations and start up our companies and our projects and our activities. diligent in getting the best people on our team. Look at Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Khadija rhodiola

00:48:43--> 00:49:02

giant Abubakar Abdullah one giant Annie rhodiola one giant amazing right? Already he has team members who are going to exacerbate this our cause this organization to grow exponentially caused my project to fly.

00:49:04--> 00:49:11

Cause my company to explode the halaal explosions but the Romans

00:49:14--> 00:49:25

Abu Bakr rhodiola one. How many people came to Islam because of Abubakar several from them with magne, a fan of the Allahu Zubaydah Abdullah rhodiola

00:49:27--> 00:49:28


00:49:30--> 00:49:36

rhodiola Horan faulhaber Abdullah, Allah Who are these names you don't know these are names, you know,

00:49:37--> 00:49:46

he was a giant and he brought giants into Islam as well. These five are from the 10 that will give him glad tidings once they were alive of gender.

00:49:48--> 00:49:57

We learn how to be selective. You want to start up a project, look for the best people to bring in and convince them give them the power

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

this is what you do it

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

You on my team. You don't push people out of your organization. You're good people you keep them in. These are people who bring the Baraka Abubakar. He brought the Baraka to the Dow five giants came into the fold of Islam, not names that, you know, just swam in the seas of the Sierra. No, they were the waves of this year. Because we know these names. So Pandora piano, we learn this, just the fact that

00:50:28--> 00:50:48

Allahu alayhi wa sallam Allah bless Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what a slab of Abubakar, we learn from this, how to target people, even when you in your family, look for the most influential people look for the purest of hearts from them start there, you most likely to get a bite.

00:50:49--> 00:51:08

And as I said, people, they do a lot they follow. They follow. If you going to the power, the one person who will probably fight you the most on your message, you will spend so much energies there. And none of the people in the family will come and they want to wait to see what happens with this person here.

00:51:10--> 00:51:22

Like the other tribes, they just wait and see. Let's see what happens to the crash. Even when they were rebuilding the camera. They said let's see what happens to a little bit. If he's alive The next day, we'll join him in fixing the camera.

00:51:24--> 00:51:46

So be wise, look at those who have the purest of hearts who are likely to listen to you who have an open mind and get them on board. When they get on board. Now you've created some momentum, people will you've already ease the process for yourself, and who knows that person you've got on board might be so bought in he might have such strong buy in that he himself will get the rest for you.

00:51:48--> 00:51:52

So how not to be an ad and you get the rewards? Because you got the one man

00:51:54--> 00:52:16

may Allah grant is the understanding. I mean, Now why did that will begin in secret was that because Islam was weak? Why would the message was not robust enough? No, no, no, no, no, no. Islam or the devil began in secret. Again, wisdom from Allah subhanho wa Taala the gradual approach.

00:52:18--> 00:52:32

Imagine if Islam came with the shocking old concept, you know, it's shocking or have you had the statement? Some managers have shocking or management styles, right? Some organizations shotgun or they come in they they come to you with an idea and they shock you and throw you into all

00:52:33--> 00:52:41

right. The hard marketing is called shotgun or marketing as well. Imagine if Islam came with a shotgun or concept, what would have happened?

00:52:44--> 00:52:48

What would have happened? It would have faced annihilation.

00:52:50--> 00:53:06

It has absolute no momentum is wisdom from Allah, Allah created us. Allah knows best how we think how we operate the Quraysh as tight as they are upon their ways. If they see that this man has people with him,

00:53:08--> 00:53:20

the reaction will be different. Naturally Allah knows. And also remember, they were tribal people. So people, different people from different tribes zone with Mohammed, the task wasn't as simple as just getting rid of him.

00:53:22--> 00:53:48

wisdom from Allah subhanho wa Taala Be patient. Be patient, you don't need results. You can't memorize the Quran overnight brothers and sisters any time. He definitely needs revision. He needs patience, seeking knowledge, learning a skill. It needs time and its effort needs patience. Again, today's lessons from harvard law we named it part three, but we could easily name it the calculated, methodical way.

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

So this was from the wisdoms that Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted the Tao of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to experience some form of momentum before Allah subhanho wa Taala sent him to the oma. Right? So we this this was the reason and as I said, the lesson we learned from it is being gradual. We also learned brothers and sisters from this, that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not ask from us that which we cannot deliver.

00:54:21--> 00:54:22

He could have told us

00:54:24--> 00:54:26

immediately in the cave, Euro messenger

00:54:28--> 00:54:30

and sent him immediately to the people

00:54:31--> 00:54:48

power spanaway terrorists worldwide and knows everything knows that is beyond this man's capacity to do so. Allah has. Allah has a specific plan in how this devil will be rolled out and he hasn't given Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the energies to manage it in that particular way.

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

Is the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala to teach us brothers and sisters. He was a human being like you and I. Yes, he had specifics, but he was a basher. A human being like you

00:55:00--> 00:55:09

You and I, he slept, he married, he had children. He became sad. He ate, he became ill sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:55:10--> 00:55:12

these are lessons for you and me.

00:55:13--> 00:55:39

Sometimes we think everything is possible not everything is possible. Learn what is possible that what isn't from the CEO of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Sometimes as bosses, we asked from our team the impossible. We want them to work the whole night and deliver work as if they slept and came to work and did their work. It's impossible. The mind gets tired. Sometimes our team members we ask from them the impossible

00:55:41--> 00:55:43

and somehow organizations do this as well.

00:55:44--> 00:55:59

And I'm gonna say this cuz Mashallah we have some elements of the crowd. And this is for those who will watch this on DVD and hear it on mp3 later, sometimes my message, the messages is in the 21st century, but firstly dedicated to those in front of me.

00:56:00--> 00:56:19

Right, some days, I see people who I know, will benefit from this particular point that that is in my heart, I will share it. And I'm going to share this given the dour entities in the audience today. in doubt, also, we want our team member to run, then we want to chop his legs and tell him to run the same way he was running before we chopped his legs.

00:56:21--> 00:56:25

This is what we do sometimes he we've given him a project given his team,

00:56:26--> 00:56:36

the project they busy then we say do the same project and take on another project and this should be excellent and that should be excellent as well. This is impossible. Where you can leave alone.

00:56:38--> 00:57:11

Yes, I know as a leader as a head as well. as as as you being in charge of this process. Your job is to push, push, push don't shove there's a difference. Push but don't shove there's a difference. law you can live in La Ilaha. Allah subhanho wa Taala does not put burden us with that which we cannot do learn this brothers and sisters, parents as well. Lenders, brothers and sisters don't put on your childhood impossible. Don't every child is unique.

00:57:12--> 00:57:14

From unfair.

00:57:16--> 00:57:21

burdening is to make one child exactly like the other. This is unfair.

00:57:22--> 00:57:27

Allah made him unique and made her unique or made that the child's unique. They different.

00:57:28--> 00:57:45

Why are you saying well your brother could do it at this age you should your sister could do it at this age you should this is not the same that the organization is doing it. We should do the same. A lesson if that's the case, go get those people from that organization. We still have we need time to get there. Right What I'm saying brothers be sensitive

00:57:46--> 00:58:02

as Allah subhanho wa Taala or be sensitive in that you learn from the way Allah subhanho wa Taala was with his rhassoul and the way Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed his Rasul to begin this hour, and how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was with his Sahaba.

00:58:03--> 00:58:11

Did they just start praying in front of the camera? No, they were praying in secret when Omar became a Muslim woman said let's go.

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

But could he have said let's go? Yes. But he knows you know what? Allah doesn't put a burden that we cannot manage? Why should I take them and they're going to feel they're going to get harmed? So what I'm saying, learn brothers and sisters learn. A lot of times, we're discussing yesterday about burnout in the Dow. Right? So people get burnt out.

00:58:31--> 00:58:35

Because they get pushed too hard. Many a time a team member comes and says

00:58:36--> 00:58:39

I'm struggling. I'm struggling is no more beloved to me and so on and so forth. Why?

00:58:41--> 00:58:54

When they cite their reasons, what do you see? They have they are being asked that which is impossible for them to deliver. That's what's happening. It's just bad management. is bad management. You don't looking after your people

00:58:55--> 00:59:19

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam God Abubakar invited him and Allah gave him he Daya and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked after him and look at the results. Look at the results. And not only that, when this Dawa became open, how many people did Abu Bakar pay and free them from the Masters? Because they will be persecuted for saying La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah

00:59:21--> 00:59:34

learn this. My dear brothers and sisters, another lesson we learned is we should never act in haste. And we've discussed this, we get this point from the fact that our in secret happened for a period of three whole years. Allahu Akbar 300 years.

00:59:36--> 00:59:43

Don't build your organization on matchsticks you are in such fast growth. It's shaky at the bottom

00:59:46--> 00:59:58

300 years making sure the foundation was strong. The best people with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because the turbulence was going to get greater. What also lesson Allahu alayhi wa sallam took us down outwards.

00:59:59--> 01:00:00

He never

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

Do you have people that will renounce Islam? Because that's a great isn't. That's another that's a major sin.

01:00:07--> 01:00:40

You need people who are ready to be with you on the journey, and Subhanallah I don't know how far we're going to get on with the Sierra. But inshallah the next time Allah brings us together my plan was to discuss the period in Medina. And if you just study the Battle of better Allah He the management lessons just from the Battle of better absolutely amazing. The fact that you know how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when they found out that we're not facing, taking this caravan, we're facing an army of over 1000 people, how he stopped the people and said, What do you think did? Sure?

01:00:43--> 01:00:54

Let's see the team morale here. Let's see. Right. Let's let's just check how it is. You know, last year I did a conference of 500 I need to do a conference of 5000 this year, before I

01:00:56--> 01:00:59

I dropped it on my team. Let me see tomorrow. What do you guys think?

01:01:01--> 01:01:20

And what did they say to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We will not be like the people of Musa who said to Musa bukata in Eden, who said to Musa you and your Lord go and fight we stick behind? Rather? We will be with you with whatever you decide he looked at the team or

01:01:23--> 01:01:24

did he have to?

01:01:26--> 01:01:44

But yes, we can say he had to because he was the best. He had the best characters on a level and he will send them and he was teaching them how to do things, how to manage people, we don't force people into positions that they cannot manage, and then orchestrate their downfall and then go to sleep at night along with that.

01:01:46--> 01:01:51

And this is general in our in business in the corporate world at home with your children with your wives with your spouse's.

01:01:53--> 01:02:05

Right, sometimes, you know, you can't tell your wife, you know, my friend, his wife, he just comes home. He doesn't have to phone and say I'm bringing a guest. If I do that, we have an argument. You should be like,

01:02:06--> 01:02:37

you don't have to do that for this insistence. Firstly, that's not fair. It's not fair that you do that. Well, it is not fair. As you know what I said the Kuru Carranza, you as a male you, you know you you don't mind healthy competition. When it comes to you, your wife was possessive of you, the moment you start comparing her to another woman, it's more than just her not being as good as her. It's the fact that your eye has noticed somebody else's qualities. It's not fair. Firstly, you got to be sensitive. How many times have I said that word, the S word. Be sensitive.

01:02:40--> 01:02:43

You got to do sure understand team morale understand what you have in the team.

01:02:44--> 01:02:53

The thought process, Allah created everybody different. And that's what makes life fun. That's what makes life fun. It doesn't mean that you need to find your wife

01:02:54--> 01:03:06

and child her you know, I got somebody is it okay to bring that no, that's bad, that your wife is not as good as the other one who the person doesn't know she is different. And she is different. That's what it that's what makes life fun.

01:03:07--> 01:03:10

Right? makes life fun hamdulillah

01:03:12--> 01:03:47

we have to fix our our understanding. So why this whole session about what we can learn from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becoming a prophet how Allah sent him the whole you know, the three a Dao in secret than the open doorway and even how that happened in the wisdoms behind it will lie This is a DNA. of it's it's, it's that imprint of how life should be, how life should be how you and I should live. Many times in Panama, we have problems in our homes, in our workplaces, in our data. And without those below us, you know who the problem is, you

01:03:48--> 01:03:49

use the problem.

01:03:50--> 01:04:06

Many times, you if you just thought about what you were doing, and did it a different way, you might have had different results, if you just lowered the bar a little bit, not because you want to average people, but because the bar that never is asking for something impossible, you would have seen different results.

01:04:08--> 01:04:09

You are granted the understanding.

01:04:10--> 01:04:23

The last thing I'm going to say because time is up I really wanted to go through the slides, but I want to say it because it's really related. It's really really related. And as I said you know I want you to do the math competed in one setting in in in 16 or 17 episodes, but

01:04:25--> 01:04:26

we have to respect this

01:04:28--> 01:04:46

and that's why I'm happy to change my mind and say I'll do it in two episodes. In not two episodes, two parts. Instead of having mcca period and the Medina period. Two parts we have to mock up as to Medina parts divide the three Medina parts for live and get to Medina, la Cava, what you get from from there is so much more as

01:04:47--> 01:04:59

his life he was a prophet was 23 years old 23 years, his lessons for us. But one thing I want to discuss with your brothers and sisters, because it's related to everything we said and I promised to do so and it's good to package

01:05:00--> 01:05:06

DVD will come out. And some of these might not be tomorrow, we're talking about about,

01:05:07--> 01:05:17

or this whole lesson was how to be graduate, and so on and so forth, right? And how not to put more pressure on people then than they deserve, or that then they can manage, right?

01:05:19--> 01:05:29

Those who study mindsets tell us a very important thing. That there's two types of mindsets. You have the fixed mindset, and you have what they call the growth mindset.

01:05:30--> 01:05:33

Many people, by default have a fixed mindset.

01:05:34--> 01:05:59

And some people don't. But in many cases our environment gives causes us to grow up having a fixed mindset, our homes, the way our parents are with us, the school system, the school system, definitely causes you to have a fixed mindset. What is the fixed mindset? What is the growth mindset? In my humble view, the growth mindset is a mindset that focuses on effort.

01:06:00--> 01:06:04

And the fixed mindset is the mindset that always focuses on result.

01:06:06--> 01:06:08

It's so result focused,

01:06:10--> 01:06:14

that it sees nothing but that, but there's a flaw with the fixed mindsets.

01:06:17--> 01:06:18

And that flow is

01:06:19--> 01:06:24

if the result cannot be achieved, the fixed mindset person loses interest.

01:06:26--> 01:07:01

loses interest, as if they are as if that thing is not wealthy, to be something that they should be pursuing. They become bored, they lose interest. Why? Because they realize realization comes that I'm going to fail. And the scariest thing to the fixed mindset is failed. Many a time we do this with our children, brothers and sisters, schools do it. It's all about the results. We batch the kids a batch v batch. So already we giving them complexes, then 90% 80% 70% is based on the exam.

01:07:03--> 01:07:08

So based on effort, the effort could have been 100%. But they were sick the day of the exam.

01:07:09--> 01:07:28

He forgot they were a human being catahoula they read the question wrong. can we improve? Yes, we can. But does that mean they were a total failure? No. The fixed mindset be the fixed mindset will go into depression. The fixed mindset, if the fixed mindset is a leader, this fixed mindset will burn out the people around them.

01:07:30--> 01:07:32

This is this is this is documented.

01:07:33--> 01:07:52

It doesn't matter that my team or my child was up most of the nights. The fact is you didn't hit the target as a parent, he needed 100%. He needed 95%. You didn't get it, it doesn't matter what you did. Because the result wasn't there. It means the effort wasn't there. And this is not true. This is not true. There's something known as the cutter.

01:07:55--> 01:08:25

And yes, yes, there's another type of cutter, which means you take the means you lock your home. But yes, we lock our home. But if Allah wills that someone breaks into the home, does that mean we didn't lock our home? No. It doesn't mean that the growth mindset is a mindset that is effort based. The harder the task, the more interested the person is. Why? Because they have the growth mindset. They are focused on effort. And now the effort of the application has become even more interesting. You know, it's one of those

01:08:27--> 01:08:51

sort of those ones. This is interesting. I like the challenge. But whatever happens at the end will happen. But I'm focused on the challenge whether I can finish the puzzle, or I can't, but I'm going to give it all I can. I want to give it all I can nine times out of 10 I do it. But if I don't do it one time, it's fine. As long as I did my best, and if I do it, but I cheated doing it, I want to be upset

01:08:53--> 01:09:28

because that wasn't good effort. That was a good effort. You got the result but the effort was up was was poor. So what happens? You're not happy. You're not pleased. You have a conscience that brings you down. Brothers and sisters, we need to learn this today. We were discussing, in most cases, the growth mindset and the importance of having a growth mindset tell your children that didn't come first. No, my dear child, come sit down. What happened in the exam? This is what happened. But you know what? You tried hard. I saw you studying. I saw you doing your extra lessons. You are good. You follow the timetable at home. There was only so much PlayStation you played there

01:09:28--> 01:09:38

was only so much TV you watch there was only so much outside time you had us study Don't worry try next time as far as I'm concerned as your parents. You are number one. You are number one.

01:09:40--> 01:09:50

So he said he will lie. You know there's so many of our missionaries. When they graduated from universities. They weren't the top graduates and those were top graduates. We don't even know where they are today.

01:09:52--> 01:09:53

I know this for many of them are

01:09:55--> 01:10:00

the superstars today. They are carriers of the shediac but they graduate

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

You waited with marks viola,

01:10:03--> 01:10:07

you think achieved if you got those marks, you would say that how La quwata illa Billah.

01:10:08--> 01:10:43

But that's just how it was. They weren't exam focused. They weren't those who study everything just to pass the exam. They had a lot of knowledge, just not correct application in terms of exams. I never bothered them. They got through Alhamdulillah they got through Alhamdulillah. But the knowledge that they had was far superior. Well, I when I was studying, I had a, I had a good friend, he was an Ansari, from Medina, right? This man, this boy, Mashallah. He was reading, according to be or he says he read to be when he was like 11 years old. He wrote a Sudoku to be how big he is.

01:10:45--> 01:10:52

It's a mighty tafsir and not for the faint hearted. I made that. And when he was 11, he says I was reading.

01:10:54--> 01:11:10

Right? But every exam, I would, he would, he would only see my desk in terms of results. He wouldn't perform as good as me. But why not? for one moment? Did I ever think this man had no knowledge in class without the book he would answer things with hanaway with the teachers would be amazed.

01:11:11--> 01:11:23

He had knowledge. But exams just wasn't his thing. I'll phone him at night of the exam. What are you reading? He says I'm reading Arabic poetry. I'm reading a book in the house. Tomorrow is a fake exam because I can't read.

01:11:24--> 01:11:33

My heart doesn't allow me to. I don't feel the sweetness doing it. I've just left it. I'm enjoying reading Arabic. Tomorrow is the exam, sha Allah.

01:11:34--> 01:11:38

And he passes with previous knowledge. Allahu Akbar that says a lot. Right?

01:11:39--> 01:11:51

So don't judge people based on results. Sometimes you set a target for your teams, they work hard, they don't get it. That's fine, as long as you tried, because there's something known as the father of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:11:52--> 01:12:03

Right, and that will prevail. Al Qaeda, Al Kony al Qaeda, the universal decree of Allah will always happen whether you like it or not, it will happen. The

01:12:04--> 01:12:08

Sharia D. That's taking the means that's in our hands.

01:12:10--> 01:12:42

That's in our hands rocking the house. That's it. That's a cutter Yes, working your best studying hard. But the cutter that prevails prevails is Catherine Kony alkatiri, the universal cutter that that will prevail. You locked your house, you put your trust in Allah, it doesn't mean your house will be broken into you will your seat belt? You might not have benefited from it. But should you add the seat belt? Yes. That's a cutter you have to take. Should you study? Yes, that's a cutter you have to practice should you lock your home? Yes, you should. That's a cutter you need to practice.

01:12:43--> 01:13:25

But have the growth mindset brothers and sisters, especially with your team members, because you will burn them out, you will burn them out. Our job is to act and propagators and parents and teachers is to nurture the oma is to grow them grow their abilities, make them become people who can take our power to the next level when they come of age. That's what we need to do. We don't need to be making carbon copies of ourselves. Firstly, firstly, we're with our standards and we push them to it No, but we push them so that they are rounded holistically. And we've grown them to a stage where they can be they can make the day our what it can be not what it is. Understand that my dear

01:13:25--> 01:13:26

brothers and sisters

01:13:27--> 01:13:35

growth mindset versus the fixed mindset if you want to learn more, google it Sakamoto Hara, we've taken a long time. And so Pamela, today I want to share with you half the lesson.

01:13:37--> 01:13:50

And I repeated many points, but they need to be repeated. The points I've shared online just from how Rasulullah became a prophet, and how he became a messenger and the stages in his era we finished, we were just discussing now that are in secret.

01:13:52--> 01:14:18

The lessons we've taken means the world to a parent means the world to a teacher means the world to a boss to an employer, means the world to the head of an Islamic organization, means the world to the president means the world to the Minister means the world to everybody will lie. The lessons we took this for everybody. it deserved the time we spent, it deserved me hopping and hopping and hopping.

01:14:19--> 01:14:57

And I don't like to call it that I rather call it consolidating and then re consolidating telling you what you didn't know. And then repeating what you now know. And then telling you again, what you just learned is that this is education, right? This is what we do. This is what an educator does. This is important will lie. If you only listen to one DVD from the set that comes out. And it was this one and you changed your life and propagated this message will lie there will be changing the home because this is how Islam came to us in this way. And I love you for the sake of Allah. Let's come back tomorrow insha Allah and do part four of the days after sola, sola Allahu alayhi wa sallam

01:14:57--> 01:15:00

became a prophet I love you for the sake of Allah ever.

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

With incorrect cities from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's perfect and any mistakes I found myself in Shabbat and I see colossal forgiveness, how they will know who I am for Salah Allah wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jemaine Subhana Allah who will be having these panic alarm or be having the connection to Allah, Allah Allah and thus the federal governor tubo la co Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
