00:00:06--> 00:00:40

All presidents are lots of panel data please be upon Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam brothers and sisters, once again I thank Allah subhana wa tada for this beautiful gathering that we get together for the sake of Allah to please Allah to learn more about loss of Hannah Montana which ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us from amongst those who pleasing limb off him and get closer to him, I mean, the problem inshallah will continue and resume with the other side of the hand. And that's a book that we'll be covering in the last two years. And the good thing about the other side of hand, it's a very comprehensive Hadith book that talks about the most important matters in your life, the

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

core matters in your life, your everyday actions and the things that you need to know as a Muslim what you need to do in everyday life. And tonight, inshallah, next few weeks we'll be talking about speech, and the etiquettes of preaching, and the etiquettes of talking to one another.

00:00:57--> 00:01:23

And the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was described to me by NSR De La da da da, da da was Ella McKenna either kalama B. Kelly met in Latin Hata to him, and who ADA, Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah in Philippines, and also de la llama describes the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that whenever the problem hamazon needs to speak, in every saw Salam will repeat himself three times

00:01:24--> 00:01:36

for people to understand him. Now obviously it is not going to be repeating everything is not going to be repeating everything is not going to be repeating everything I know becomes annoying. But the problem amazon seller would repeat the most important things

00:01:37--> 00:02:12

emphasize on the most important issue. For the purpose of people understanding the problem Hamilton loves lm and having a better clarity on the topic the problem hamata lalala was talking about and if the problem is to get past some people and never sell a service to salute them and give them Salaam three times. Salaam Aleykum, selam, Aleykum Samaniego not necessarily Samadhi Samadhi, calm Sonico he talking about a good people you know when you go and what a group people sometimes you might say so articles, articles are gonna go to each side each direction. And again, for better clarity. That's what the problem homosassa is doing.

00:02:13--> 00:02:39

So its emphasis on the important matter the problem homosassa lam is conveyed repeating the space three times that's the character of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because the problem homosassa has the onus and it has the liability and the responsibility of conveying what loss of analog data wasn't to convey. Right and I was just telling the brothers and sisters of Sydney it's done ecology three, or talking about that part of the Sunnah of the Prophet Mohammed, Salah, Salah, and what the scholars of

00:02:40--> 00:03:08

the scholars of the principles of the jurists they have and they define the sooner to be anything the problem homosassa lam said the never anything the problem Hamas Assalam D the new thing the problem homosassa Mr. Primo, and I gave an example because we're talking about Hello consumption. Hello, food. And I mentioned the example when the problem homosassa when Pascal didn't know a little harder when he was eating a lizard is using a lizard not a small isn't talking about the dub, which is like a chunky lizard.

00:03:10--> 00:03:20

The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to join him in eating that lizard. So the problem homosassa replied back to me said in the alpha or get disgusted from it. But the problem homosassa decide then.

00:03:21--> 00:03:26

Which means what because the problem homosassa didn't say too hard. It means what it means is

00:03:28--> 00:03:41

because the problem Amazon has the responsibility that he can't, he can't it he's not like young boy, he can't keep quiet, ever anyhow, that's been committed in front of him or his somalisa hearing of any harm. So if someone came up to the

00:03:43--> 00:03:56

Messenger of Allah, sir, I was just smoking. Okay, no worries. Now you count on me as a chef. Even it's wrong, but I could either get away with it. But the premises on count never saw something exciting isn't smoking.

00:03:58--> 00:04:01

Because at the end of the day, it's like an approval from the properties.

00:04:02--> 00:04:07

If a man comes to the provider is salatu salam, and this man is talking to the

00:04:08--> 00:04:20

body about someone else and part of the process of the process and can pay attention to the lips awesome mask must. It's a must and must pull him up and saying no, you can't talk about someone knows. Otherwise it becomes an approval.

00:04:21--> 00:04:33

So be salario said I'm gonna be on a salado service to say something many times he repeated three times for the purpose of conveying the message with full clarity.

00:04:34--> 00:04:45

With full clarity, to be clear to the people listening to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said no one misunderstands what the prophet Mohammed Salim is saying because everything the Prophet Mohammed says I'm saying it's a law.

00:04:46--> 00:04:52

It's a legislation. Send the VSA lab, especially if it's something so important.

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

And that doesn't mean I'm not saying that the right things are the problem. homosassa that says, They says la salsa which are not important.

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

The problem Amazon says is important.

00:05:03--> 00:05:15

But the point is a problem Amazon has the responsibility of conveying the message of a loss of panel data these people because anything the problem homosassa would say is a law and it's the law of a loss of panel data which

00:05:16--> 00:05:23

needs to be a must be clear better. That's why the Prophet Mohammed Salah would repeat himself three times.

00:05:24--> 00:05:31

And when the Prophet Mohammed Salah Larissa mystica passed a group of people in Nevis Allah, some will give them Salaam three times

00:05:32--> 00:05:56

just to be clear about things and given the Salaam if it's a group of people, it's more welcoming is not going to go up to one person. So Miko Samaniego, Santa Monica, Nana Nafisa would not do something like that by navasana. With this optimism there's a group of people just to make the group of people feel more Welcome to the grip salutation more than one Salam aleikum. wa

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

rahmatullah carriker, Rama Rasulullah, sallAllahu, wasallam, kelemen porcelain, FMO, kulu Melania smell,

00:06:08--> 00:06:46

eyeshadow de la, she says of the Prophet Mohammed Salah la de wasallam. His speech was very precise, and understandable. The speech of the problem homosassa lamb was very precise, and understandable, not understandable in his utterance in his pronunciation, yes, his utterance, his pronunciation weekly, but the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in his content in the results of his content, he was also clear and that's why in one of the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam he's decided to people talk to people to their level,

00:06:47--> 00:06:55

when you speak to people speak to people to the level then getting these words that you know people are not understanding just because while masala is very well spoken here, but what did you understand?

00:06:57--> 00:07:03

The point is, what did you understand I was making a because I want to convey a message. But because I wanted to Olga masala is very well spoken, well spoken, and

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

I use words that

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

convey anything,

00:07:09--> 00:07:27

send a piece of audio. So let me get down to the level of people when he's to speak to him to convey the message because that is responsible that he's the Messenger of Allah to convey the message of Allah. So more responsibility as the Messenger of Allah is to convey the message of Allah to my people and understand that that's the character the professor said, No.

00:07:29--> 00:07:39

And obviously, we're talking about the character of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, not only because we love the character of the problem, homosassa because we're inspired by the character of the problem homosassa because we want to belong to

00:07:42--> 00:07:52

Him and follow the footsteps of the problem. Hamilton lost him. So when he talks to people, when you get down to people, when you preach, be understandable, be understandable.

00:07:53--> 00:07:56

Get down to the level of people and speak their language.

00:07:57--> 00:08:09

That might be soft, so sophisticated, Mashallah intellectual. Yes, it's good when you talk to intellectual people. But when you but people are not intellectual, what's the point of you talking to people, they know that these people have no idea what you're talking about.

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

And you know, sometimes, like even myself, sometimes you want to use big words. And then I'll say, Well, I'm going to use so I'm going to use a big word so big that these people can understand that what's the point?

00:08:21--> 00:08:35

You use a big word, they know that they understand what's the point of even speaking from the very beginning. It's like I'm giving you a key to the wrong bowl. It's always key. It's a nice key, it's made out of gold. But when I open that door, what's the point?

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

So that's the character of the problem. homosassa when he used to preach, he used to preach to the level of people.

00:08:44--> 00:09:03

And Subhanallah that's part of the articulation of the problem. homosassa that's how articulate the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam was. He was articulate some alojado celemony speech that he used to convey the message to the people to their level, speak the language, speak the understanding, speak the mindset.

00:09:05--> 00:09:13

But if you want to be so articulate, and your speech and intellectual, and your crowd has no idea what you're talking about, what's the point?

00:09:15--> 00:09:27

as a public speaker, if he told me when are the most difficult times when it comes to speaking to people when I've got a mixed crowd, Muslims or non Muslims, for example, that's a big challenge for me. Because

00:09:28--> 00:09:43

I'm gonna be talking to Muslims and non Muslims they don't understand anything I'm talking about. And I'm going to be talking to non Muslims I'm gonna get them so low level in the speech I'm talking about like the level is going to be so.

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

So basic, that non Muslims themselves will say, Oh, you know what? This too childish. So you have to lower the level. It is challenging amongst Muslims, my challenge, or the most challenging times when I talk to Muslims

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

There's one scribe between Albanian, we're gonna talk a guy. And sometimes, sometimes I get that, I get up and I see a crowd of mixed brothers, young brothers and the older brothers. And I look at the crowd and look to see, you know, some of those youngsters are people are not written on the right path, say start talking about drugs, the other ones get offended, avoid talking about drugs, well, not addressing

00:10:22--> 00:10:30

the problem homosassa was articulate when it came to the he knew how to address people, he knew how to communicate with people, and yet it conveyed the message of our last panel, because it's his responsibility.

00:10:31--> 00:11:04

It's a responsibility upon the problem homosassa them to convey the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So conveying the message of a lie soldier to the people, it's an art. And that's why we call it the art of public speaking. And let me say ourselves, the greatest public speaker they've ever come across, he was the greatest ally salsa. He's the greatest public speaker we could ever ever come across. He knew how to convey the message of Allah subhanho Danilo very generic, basic, easy form, without any complications, because at the end of the day, you speak because you want to convey a message.

00:11:05--> 00:11:26

You want to convey the message and that speak. Speaking is a tool, like a like a car, either buy a car because you want to buy a car, you buy a car, because it's gonna take you from A to Zed. It's a tool. And public speech is a tool for you to convey a message. And the problem Hamilton was Adam was the best public speaker Why? Because he knew how to convey the message.

00:11:27--> 00:11:44

In euro speak the language of people. He knew how to relate to people. So that's part of preaching. And that's the art of preaching, of course, because preaching, advocating, calling to Allah subhanaw taala is an art giving.

00:11:45--> 00:12:13

And the purpose of your given dollars because you want to convey that message to people you want to bring people to the end of Allah subhanho wa Taala you want to enroll something in their mind, you want to embed something in their mind, you want to send a message in the mind for them to think about it. That's the style of the Prophet Mohammed Sawsan. So what we're going to be talking about tonight in Sharla, for us to learn some of the songs of the problem amazon seller in the wider problem, amazon prime is to convey the message of a loss of anodyne, and that's the etiquettes of preaching.

00:12:15--> 00:12:37

And preaching starts with your tongue. Now, obviously, and I want to make something very clear preaching is not all about talking. Because it's a misconception that we have, we misunderstand that we as Muslims, that when you talk about preaching, the first thing that crosses your mind is just speaking, Yes, speaking, is part of preaching. But it's not all preaching, you could preach with your manners,

00:12:38--> 00:12:45

you will have a greater impact with the amount of people then having an impact within speech.

00:12:47--> 00:12:51

So it's not necessarily always the Dow is

00:12:52--> 00:13:21

a speech away afterwards, because a lot of the times when he told people you know, again, self involved in the Dow, I don't know how to speak, I can understand that not everyone is a public speaker that no one has the courage to be a public speaker, not everyone even has the urge, or even the interest to be a public speaker. And the fabric of public speaking, is greater than death, people get scared from public speaking than dying. And that's reality. I'm not making it up. People have a phobia from public speaking and that

00:13:23--> 00:13:57

that's a real, that's a study. Again, now we're excited to be a public speaker. But the reality is public speaking or preaching by your tongue is also a form of dogma, that's part of dogma, but it's not all the dollar you could preach to lots of panels and what people don't realize those three minutes. So then confine and limit yourself, okay, because I'm not a good speaker. And I don't know how to speak I don't know much I don't even have much knowledge, I'm not going to be in the door. Now. You could be in the doorway somewhere else. And maybe Sam says, You will never ever when people have it with your money, but you can win people over the monies.

00:13:58--> 00:14:05

You can change people's life with your mentors. Mentors can have more of an impact over someone

00:14:06--> 00:14:08

than what you say, with your tongue.

00:14:09--> 00:14:13

You influence someone more with your manners than your speech.

00:14:15--> 00:14:49

But obviously, when people are well spoken, and they know how to convey the message, and then I had a bridge that has also an impact. So I want to make that very clear because that's one of the things are constantly encounter with people that want to be involved in the dialogue because I don't know how to speak I don't have much knowledge. That's not right. You can continue calling to Allah subhanaw taala through other avenues. He can preach through other means. And number one mean that anyone can do is good manners. And that's why the Prophet Muhammad SAW some is to emphasize on learners and attracted the hearts of his opponents and his enemies through his manners more than one

00:14:49--> 00:15:00

he had spoken la salatu wa sallam. He captivated his enemies through his manners more than he captivated them through his speech, and he is the most well spoken human being

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

avatrade la Salatu was Salam.

00:15:03--> 00:15:07

So the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had his soul

00:15:08--> 00:15:16

when it came to preaching. And the number one style is that the problem homosassa knew how to convey the message.

00:15:17--> 00:15:27

So it's a strategy that you need to build up. When you speak to someone, you need to build up that strategy in you convey that message, how can you convey that message?

00:15:28--> 00:16:06

What are the words you're going to be using conveying that message? What's the body language that you're going to be using for conveying that message? It's all on. You say that in the character of the Prophet Mohammed Salah, Salah, the UPS page, and now you've got degrees in public speaking, this degrees, you could achieve even four years up to 10 years if you want, learning the art of public speaking, but at the end of the day, both as arts and everything to do with public speaking you find that in a character, the problem homosassa because he's got that responsibility is called job description and role is for him to convey the message of Allah subhanaw taala. And that's why an

00:16:06--> 00:16:33

episode seems to be very clear, in his speech, very clean in his speech, so clear that the problem hamazon repeated three times. And obviously, it's not gonna be repeating every single sentence, it's not going to be repeating every single sentence, it's not going to be repeating every single sentence it becomes emilien but in a bizarre salon, and that's part of the art of public speaking, when there's something that you want to emphasize on, it's recommended for you to emphasize on at three times.

00:16:35--> 00:16:45

If something is important, it's important for you to convey a message is important for you to emphasize the three times because people pick up on a third time sometimes. So Pamela people's attention span.

00:16:47--> 00:16:53

So that's the Hadith the Prophet Mohammed salaallah alayhi wa sallam, and the problem hamazon Lassana his content,

00:16:54--> 00:16:57

not just the wording, you could say a lot of words.

00:16:59--> 00:17:07

You could speak a lot of words, but the content substance You know, sometimes people talk talk talk to talk, and they talk

00:17:08--> 00:17:27

a lot but it's not substance just talk entertainers. And now voters in the Dow have got a lot of entertainers level more than this and motivation this and that. But there's no substance. You walk out, just hopped up on a high, but where's the substance? What did you learn?

00:17:28--> 00:17:30

What did you learn? What did you take with you?

00:17:32--> 00:17:45

In the business I was very smart when it came to making sure that the message that era salado says conveyed has a very rich substance rich content.

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

something meaningful.

00:17:49--> 00:18:01

something beneficial. So that's exactly why it's about the law. talana saying never the problem. homosassa is this big? Kellerman puzzler, not too long. That being the problem

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

is a habit for hours and hours and hours.

00:18:06--> 00:18:11

After that was a problem Hamilton last episode he resided and lived in Iraq.

00:18:13--> 00:18:33

So from time to time, he is to advice and give naziha give talks, listen sermons to the people in his area. But he's to be very selective with the times that he's to give talks to. So the people around him they used to, they used to pressure him they used to say to him, please give us more talk give us more talk one more, one more.

00:18:34--> 00:18:41

I would like to save this habit of the Lord God and hear about the beautiful times that this man spent with the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam

00:18:42--> 00:18:52

so Abdullah in the Mossad, what did he say? He said, No, no, no, I'm very selective with the times that I give you sermons. That's how the Prophet Muhammad SAW Mr. B

00:18:53--> 00:19:04

whenever he saw seems to be very selective with the timing and the times that the problem happens so mister addressed this habit every single day praying five times behind the Amazon seller.

00:19:07--> 00:19:10

Every single prayer is an hour sermon. That wasn't the problem Hamilton lotsa

00:19:11--> 00:19:15

that wasn't the character the processor seems to be very selective.

00:19:16--> 00:19:23

This is a time we'll give them 10 minutes. Reminder. These are time and there was a time

00:19:24--> 00:19:37

where the Sahaba said once the problem hamazon celebrate visit and after visit. He got up in the assassin and prayed pheasant and he got up to the member. He ascended the member. He gave us a mower either all the way through.

00:19:39--> 00:19:43

And then the problem came down from the member price a lot.

00:19:44--> 00:19:49

And then he ascended the member once again and gave us a lower all the way to losses

00:19:50--> 00:19:54

and then came down creates a lot of losses and send them in

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

the pupil

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

and gave us a moment all the way through

00:20:01--> 00:20:02

And he came down

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

and then

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

and gave us a ride all the way to Asia.

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

I told Ella

00:20:12--> 00:20:13

but that's a one off time.

00:20:14--> 00:20:45

That's a one off. Lawyer does a hobby for me, man. There's a habit of the cloud. And I know that writing this habit from what I recall, it's not the law. No, he said, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned so many things about the future, and the end of time and what's going to happen and the songs of the day of gentlemen. And one of the Sahaba of the multilotto He says, I still remember that song, the problem homosassa spoken from visit to Asia.

00:20:46--> 00:20:49

I picked up two bags of knowledge of giving you one on a kept one.

00:20:51--> 00:20:56

That's as a hobby, I believe. No, I bet. He said, I've given you one bag of knowledge that I've kept one bag of knowledge with me.

00:20:58--> 00:21:02

So Pamela, yes, in the results, I went for probably 12 hours

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

of a sermon 12 hours of an advice.

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

12 hours of given a lesson to the Sahaba de la Tanana. But that was a waste of time. That was the one of sermon, it wasn't something the problem Amazon will do every single day, or every single month, if there's a need and

00:21:23--> 00:21:30

if there's no need and there was also will be selective with the times. So also part of you conveying the right message, you need to choose the right time.

00:21:32--> 00:21:51

Part of conveying the message choose the right time. So for example, it's wedding prep or getting married or the to get picked up on the weekend. And the bride and the groom and feminism everyone's celebrating remember all these things. And then the chef comes and he says fee Allah because what are you gonna buy?

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

This is me

00:21:56--> 00:22:03

punishing the Hellfire, and what the bride and groom will look at each other and saying, well, I shoulda said guess the whole fire now.

00:22:05--> 00:22:06

You have to be very selective.

00:22:07--> 00:22:33

Sometimes we are unwise, with the timing of our speech, be very selective with the timing of the speech and the content of speech, if it's a time of happiness, then you talk about something which is happy. You talk about happiness, Tom of wearing Tom have a marriage ceremony, he talks about that. If it's a time of sorrow, you blend in with that time of sorrow.

00:22:35--> 00:23:12

If it's a time of sadness, you blend in with a time of sadness, you're not going to get to a place where people are getting together and convey that condolences to someone who passed away and you then you're talking about you know what love got married, and this other, you have to choose the content. And the half, even though it's the hat but the hat has time has has place. The hat has a sword and has place. So you find that in a character, the problem homosassa that's something that we learn from the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad sallahu wa salam is to be very clear in his speech. And his content was very rich.

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

You could be telling you could be talking you could be talking from now to the cows come home. You could talk 1000 words, people understand nothing. And he could say 10 words on paper, I understand a lot of things.

00:23:24--> 00:24:02

The precision, you find that Napoleonic in one word, can mean up to 10 meanings, one word, one word, the Napoleonic in one sentence. You could derive 50 cocom rulings out of it. And that's how it is some verses in the Chronicle in one verse, you do a 50 rulings out of it. one verse said precise. Secondly, they take a lot from substance the substance is very important. The substance so this is about the law that the problem was Alam he used to be very precise, very clear in his speech that everyone needs to understand.

00:24:03--> 00:24:38

You're not gonna get to the problem homosassa them and he said he asked the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam in Arabic. Okay. General, excellent. General Arabic accent you say? Halle Berry, a car philosopher. It is part of watches or is it part of watches for you too fast during travel? So this man he had a different accent? And he said Heron Burnham from Sam from suffer. So rather than saying I'll see ya unseen you've got an excellent Arab and Arabic accent. Rather than saying I'll see ya I'm cm has a has

00:24:39--> 00:24:53

a lot of ambrosial rather than Alif Lam. It's Elif mean. So the problem homosassa with his wisdom report back then when he said lacell burgerim from sium from suffer send themselves a report back to him and his excellent

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

crew replied back to him in his excellent so this is to get to the level of

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

Man for him to understand the problem amazon seller, because the problem Amazon has a responsibility, his responsibility is not for him to portray himself there is a very well spoken person, his responsibilities been to convey the message of Allah.

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

He conveys,

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

that his articulation

00:25:18--> 00:25:43

conveys that that is responsibility. But at the end of the day more responsibility is for me to convey a message and you as I die, because every single one of us is a die. Every single one of us has that responsibility and liability of being a die someone who calls to Allah subhanaw taala. I have this responsibility, as I said, you have that responsibility as a Muslim. Dawa is the responsibility of every single Muslim, not the responsibility of the Messiah for the Imams

00:25:45--> 00:25:58

or those who are in positions of executive committee positions in Islamic organizations, or those in positions of leadership of the Muslim community. Dawa is the responsibility of every single Muslim,

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

every single Muslim. So the responsibility of Dawa is your responsibility, their responsibility with our is more responsible, the responsibility of irresponsibility, it is responsibility, their responsibility, the responsibility of every single Muslim standing on the face of this earth.

00:26:17--> 00:26:36

We are all responsible for the responsibility of that. We're all responsible for conveying the message of Allah subhanaw taala to people conveying the message of God, to play but that's my responsibility. That's your responsibility. Obviously, people are a lot more articulate in conveying that message

00:26:38--> 00:27:00

through speech than others. Some people are more articulate, but others can convey that message through the actions through a smile, amongst gesture, through their morals, their dealings, their discipline their principles. And that's why the Prophet Mohammed Salim said in nutcombe Lantus owners of mid camalexin was

00:27:01--> 00:27:16

you will never ever win people over and captivate people through your money. You can't buy someone, but you can win someone ever with your mentors. Your mentors, your managers, the biggest dollar to manage the biggest dollar

00:27:17--> 00:27:25

if someone saw article, someone is so well spoken, and now that I convey the message but his man is so disgusting Now listen to him.

00:27:26--> 00:27:34

Now what isn't he? It's about your manners. Not to Pamela is the Prophet Mohammed Salah Lhasa also says in the film Bayern Illa. Sahara,

00:27:35--> 00:28:20

there is magic. In speech. There is magic in speech. While the problem with Amazon is implying that you can change people's mindset, you changed people's lives. He changed people's minds through speech. You can, you could if you've got an environment, you've got a group of people you could turn that environment into a happy environment with a speech on Mars word. Or you could turn the environment into a very sad environment. With one word, one word can turn an entire tribe in their happy tribe, one word can turn an entire tribe into etc. One word can bring the enemies together and one word can divide between the lovers. One word

00:28:21--> 00:28:22

can bring the enemies together

00:28:23--> 00:28:29

or reunite them. And one word can split between the lovers in the fifth barilla

00:28:31--> 00:28:32

this magic free speech

00:28:34--> 00:29:00

has the problem hamazon sentences and we're not talking about literal magic as well. The problem homosassa was implying when it says there's magic in speech. He is implying to that he can change people through speech, change people through speech, I'm obviously not the greatest speaker, though God is the speech of Allah subhanaw taala what's the speech of Allah, the product name, the Chronicle is the speech of Allah subhanaw taala that's why when the Arabic says to him to change,

00:29:01--> 00:29:38

hearing the words of Allah subhanaw taala the articulation of the words of Allah subhana wa Taala the content, the substance, the structure, the phrases, the sentences, the verses, obviously to know because we don't have much of an Arabic background, or we don't understand the Arabic language. And we don't understand the Arabic grammar but some of the understands that Arabic language is someone that understands the Arabic grammar, they value the Polonica more than those that don't understand the Arabic language or that understand the Arabic grammar a lot. For example, someone like myself, are probably done very or someone, someone who is a farmer, for example, one brother told me in

00:29:38--> 00:29:45

Africa, you know, he told me people in Africa in the villages or people are living in the deserts that are very diamonds

00:29:46--> 00:29:57

that are very diamonds, because they don't understand the concept. Of course, I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying well of African people, but the concept is, people that value something that understand the

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

people that are very simple

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

Hey this is lucky I remember my kids when they were children you know one or two years old if I used to give him five bucks please throw in my face the one that coins

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

the keys 50 bucks No no no, I want the golden

00:30:15--> 00:30:31

value. Now the one the yellow one and the one the green one might have been the step that up the one the green ones now you know is the green one and give me the yellow one. They give me the brown one I want the green one straight to the green

00:30:34--> 00:30:36

so obviously when you don't understand something you're not going to value it

00:30:38--> 00:30:51

we value the Chronicle name because we believe it's the way the velocity panels out of our show you the moment that you start understand the Arabic language, the grammar of the Arabic language, the content and the substance of the Arabic language you start valuing the chronic remove

00:30:52--> 00:31:10

you start appreciating the Quranic anymore and that's why the Arabs during the time of the Prophet Muhammad SAW the value the Quranic remove, why because the understand the Quran, the Quran, the new the this is the words of Allah subhanaw taala. The Quranic name is the words of Allah azza wa jal. So I says the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:31:12--> 00:31:23

is to be very precise and generic general in his speech, and he used to make everyone understand and they are in the next wave. And Dr. Eben Abdullah of the

00:31:25--> 00:31:28

colony Rasulullah Salallahu. Salam, ala de

00:31:30--> 00:31:39

is done certain nurse from Atlanta, Georgia de Cofer on the other day, Baba Baba. Okay, so the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:31:41--> 00:32:17

One of the things of the process I used to do before he's to start his speech before addressing playboy is to say to them, pay attention. What because it's got a message that he wants to convey. And it had to do with the hazard the road that that was the biggest congregation the problem hamazon had ever experienced. He had 115 120 414,000 different arrangements 100 100 1000s of hobby, and never saw some had ever 100,000 companion, men and women. That was the biggest congregation, the Prophet Muhammad SAW somebody being counseled. So the problem homosassa Abdullah, Abdullah, tell people to pay attention to me.

00:32:19--> 00:32:22

What's the point of you talking and people are not paying attention? Obviously.

00:32:24--> 00:32:35

When you talk to people not paying attention, there's two problems in one problem. It comes from the people themselves, the audience have been disrespectful. But the other problem means that people are not interested in what he's saying.

00:32:36--> 00:32:46

And that's why, one of the reasons or one of the things I've picked up on with a lot of public speaking, especially Michelle, because I'm sorry to say that Michelle in general, they like to talk a lot.

00:32:47--> 00:32:51

Michelle in general, because that's what they do talk talk to, including myself anyway.

00:32:53--> 00:33:11

So myself in general, walk the talk, no problem was taught, but that prolong the speech that made the speech so long, they use the attention of people. If someone can give you 10 minutes of their attention, then give them 10 minutes talk. What's the point of return for ALS, ALS, ALS, ALS, ALS, ALS, als and people that haven't paid attention.

00:33:12--> 00:33:13

And you say that

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

and you get a check. For example, someone wants addressed kids and the kids in our kids. The attention span is so limited. About the chef wants to stand on Thompson for an hour. What's the point? Talk to him for 10 minutes convey the message in Terminus armonico? Are you talking for the sake of talking? Are you talking because you want to convey something in it and determine exactly what you want?

00:33:35--> 00:33:39

You need to decide, am I speaking because I'm speaking I'm speaking because I want to convey something

00:33:43--> 00:34:12

is to seek people's attention and is to captivate people's attention to people is to pay attention to the problem homosassa London, the Sahaba used to describe each other when the problem homosassa is to speak, as if birds and pigeons are standing ever heads. You know, one slight move, what happens to a bird flies away. So that's exactly what I just described each other. They used to be so captivated by the spirit of the Amazon, and they used to pay attention to the

00:34:13--> 00:34:15

summit that needs to move.

00:34:16--> 00:34:23

The way we moved on I was just paying attention to the programming salsa but obviously captivated them and we saw some newbies to get too long.

00:34:24--> 00:34:51

In the business of Mr. interface to prolong his speed so long as only if there is a need any of those are needed. There's a big gap gaffer but it's just a general advice general lesson. Don't get too long and keep people for hours. Keep people enough time for them to pay attention. And I'm going to implement that and that's what I'm going to stop. So Xochimilco for listening molars and panel data, raw data from him Allah subhanaw taala make us from amongst those who listen and hear and act upon what the lesson is.
