or the reality of the term is an Arabic word. And this word existed in the Arabic language before the advent of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We know that the Arabs spoke Arabic, before Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became a prophet, this term before Islam refer to several meanings, what is important to us or the meaning which is important to us here and now is the meaning that refers to causation, causation or making something lean towards what you are upon making something or attempting to make something lean towards that which you are upon this is the meaning of that. And it's important that we understand that our looking at the linguistic meaning as

00:00:55--> 00:01:40

well, why? Because many of us today think that the hour is all about converting people. It has to be about the conversion. If we aren't able to convert anybody, we will not observe that this is what happens. We feel we're not ready. We always tell ourselves, we're not ready. Right? The situation is not right for us. Right? The reality is not right for us while we are focused on convention. But when we look at this linguistic meaning we see it's a process of effective somebody leaning towards that which you are upon which means that our is about propagating and inviting, not about conversion. Conversion is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa taala. The heart changing is in the

00:01:40--> 00:01:55

hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is why also allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in all his talks, he would begin with a fatwa. And in this eclipse or introduction, he would say me Yeah, for now more than Lella Well, may you believe

00:01:57--> 00:02:41

that the one who Allah guides the man can this guy and the one that Allah subhanho wa Jain and his guides, the men can guide so that Allah is about propagating conversion is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala in terms of this meaning, or the term in the Islamic context, or as we are used to saying, the technical meaning of the hour, or how you and I should understand it for the purpose of this talk today. We don't find from our earliest point is a definition for that. But no doubt, they understood it, no doubt they understood is because that word came with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he taught his companions Ravi Allahu Anhu. And perhaps one of the greatest incidents

00:02:41--> 00:02:53

from the earlier generations to teach us how they understood our is the famous story of Bombay, even when he walked into the courts of Roscoe, this patient, leader,

00:02:54--> 00:03:01

when he was asked, Why have you come, he said, gee, we have come to you, they know how

00:03:02--> 00:03:47

to remove the seven minute event, from worshiping the servers in rockville event, to the worship of the Lord of the service, and we have come to remove you from being Adonia we have come to remove you from the narrowness of this life, to the vastness of this life and the hereafter. And we have come to remove you from the oppression, oppression of the ways that were present to the justice of Islam. So this is a famous incident that happened in the earlier generations, which makes us understand that the term devil was understood even though nobody defined it. Nobody defined it. When we look at the latest callers we find many from our Messiah

00:03:48--> 00:04:38

Have you the whom Allah who have described what that means. And in a nutshell, they say that our is about inviting to the best of character. When you correct your child's character this is down when you correct your colleagues character. This is when you correct the character of your spouse, this is the hour a wife might tell her husband to speak appropriately or to perhaps lower his tone or perhaps use appropriate words. This is down from the wife and the same happiness with the husband. The hour refers to inviting people towards the best of characters, and it refers to inviting people towards the best of these, and if you first to protection of all rights, the rights of Allah

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

subhanahu wa Jalla and the rights of the slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning you and I, and that Allah also refers to the establishment of justice between the people may Allah subhanahu wa jal that make us from those corners to these wonderful attributes. It is for this reason are servants of Allah. And it is for this reason or children of Adam

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

that this that Allah is Allah has that aura. And this deed is Allah has been understand this this that Allah that you and I try to do is Allah says Allah for Allah subhana who okay I said well

00:05:17--> 00:05:19

in Salah

00:05:27--> 00:06:05

must be Allah subhanho wa Taala that says that it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who invites you to? Who propagates to you and invites you towards Daraa salaam, that house of peace? Well, yeah, he may Yeah. And it is Allah subhanho wa Taala that he's the one who guides me you're the one who he was. He loves Mr. Beam and places them on the right path it will tell you here.
