00:00:08--> 00:00:11

Rubbish alessandri why silly Emery rock bottom melissani

00:00:15--> 00:00:55

so brothers and sisters inshallah we will continue with what we spoke about last week and we're talking about the adverb, which is the etiquettes the adapt of giving a naziha and Morita, which is the etiquette of preaching and inviting people to then have a loss of Hannah Montana, obviously one of the main verses when it comes to this, as well lots of panel dynamics mentioned our report on auto Elizabeth Arabic. I've been Hekmati one more way that it has an ability arson, Allah subhana wa tada commands in the Holy Quran or Muhammad. And when Allah azza wa jal is addressing the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam Allah is also addressing the nation of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa

00:00:55--> 00:01:19

sallam call to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala to the religion of Allah call to Allah subhanho wa Taala bill hikma with wisdom, while Marie Dotty and Hashanah, Kota lies zawada with wisdom and the good speech. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has commanded me that when you call to his religion when he called Allah subhanho wa Taala you call with wisdom and you call with good speech more either.

00:01:20--> 00:01:33

Okay, more than which means calling to Allah subhana wa tada min hikma in good spirit or with wisdom hikmah means wisdom and the last panel that I want you to go to his religion. Bill Hekmati

00:01:35--> 00:01:59

has an in wisdom and good speech. So these are the three elements that lots of how about Allah wants you to focus on when you call to Allah subhanaw taala and invited the deen of Allah azza wa jal with wisdom and good speech. Because every single one of us at the end of the day my brothers and sisters has that responsibility of being a Di. Di means a preacher. Every single one of us is a preacher. It's not just Shadi or chef.

00:02:01--> 00:02:15

Or, you know, Mufti menk or chef, Omar Suleiman or chef, these are great. Every single one of them are great preachers that we have, nowadays, this day and age, but they're not the only preachers to Islam. You're also a preacher to Islam.

00:02:16--> 00:02:50

Every single Muslim, every single Muhammad and Muhammad and Muhammad and Fatah man is on every single person that says La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul, Allah is a preacher. You have that responsibility of preaching to Allah, anodyne and wanting people to universalize order, it's my responsibility, our responsibility, our responsibility, every single Muslim. One of the wrong mistakes that we've got one of the major mistakes that we've got one of the wrong perceptions that we have of Islam is that we always can find Dawa and limit Dawa to those who are mushy, if you're a chef, you're a die.

00:02:51--> 00:03:33

If you have a long beard, you're a die. If you are on an executive board or Management Board of any Islamic organization, you're a die. Now you're wrong. Every single one of us say that every single one of us has the responsibility of every single one of us has the responsibility of advocating or calling people to Nineveh, Allah subhana wa Tada. So let us all in this URL, and make it clear from the very beginning, you're a die. Every single one of you here tonight and every single brother and sister that's listening to us, all throughout the 1.8 billion Muslims standing on the face of this earth, this time, these are all days, the 1.8 billion Muslims around the world, every single one of

00:03:33--> 00:03:55

them has that responsibility of the dollar. And that's why you find that within the character of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and the teachings of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam to Addis Ababa, the alota Adam during his time, the very moment that some of them are the very moment that one of them will embrace Islam is that very moment The problem was that I would say to him, get back to your tribe, get back to your family, and bring him to Islam.

00:03:56--> 00:04:16

Read into the Syrah the biography of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. The very moment that someone embraces this, that is the very moment that the Prophet Muhammad SAW someone say to him, go back to your family and call him to Allah. Go back to Troy and call him to Allah God Allah subhanho wa Taala Deen of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:04:17--> 00:04:39

And because I've never said to you, North America, and then a bit of a bit of Islam and Ghandi, the Sangha through this course and go through this program and go through these and get through that, then start calling to Allah. This person just embraced Islam. Many moments before that he was the most severest enemy to Islam. He was the greatest enemy there is now now this person embraces them. And now the Prophet Muhammad SAW some system gun cool. You played with Islam

00:04:41--> 00:04:44

to fight when he came to Mecca to perform

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

or to do the ritual of visiting the Kaaba.

00:04:49--> 00:05:00

They manipulated him and we're talking about the chiefs of Christ. They manipulated him and they've brainwashed him about the problem. Amazon said to him, there's a man in Makkah, his name is Muhammad. He's been

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

brainwashing people, he's casting spells on people he is these and he's the he's a lawyer. He's a magician. He's a fortune teller don't even know what to say about the Prophet Muhammad Allah 1000 things he's a Muslim he's crazy he's This is not that listen to this man is this to find became so concerned and petrified from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he shoved his his with codons from the fear of listening to the problem and masasa them. And then he encounters the problem of salami, the Kaaba, and then he says to himself, I'm not stupid. Let me listen to what this man has. Let me listen to him. He's got something good. Don't listen to me because something

00:05:35--> 00:05:39

bad I'm good enough. I'm smart enough for me to know what's wrong, what's bad.

00:05:41--> 00:06:04

So I said before the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam listen to what the prophet Muhammad had to say. And he was smart enough to fine. He was wise enough he was mature enough for him to decide whether the Amazon was saying right or wrong. So at the end, he accepted Islam. That very moment they accepted Islam is that very moment the problem Amazon told me go back to your tribe and caliente Islam. So he went to his tribe,

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

which is dose, the name of his tribe was called dose. So I went to his tribe and he invited them taste learn. So much so that even as the Prophet Muhammad SAW sent him to ask Allah subhana wa tada to give him a miracle to show his own people that this man is saying the truth and when he was traveling back to his tribe, he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to appear a miracle to emerge a miracle on his hands. That can be a proven Evidence of Progress people that this man what he's saying is the truth Allah subhanho wa Taala made his stick turn to light like a torch. So Pamela and this man just recently embraced Islam.

00:06:42--> 00:07:17

These days someone was born a Muslim grew up in a Muslim family maybe wanted Islamic school knows some of the Khurana Karim some This is a lot of us from the beginning. And then he comes Satan can call to Allah I don't know much I have to do the schools and after listen to a muddy dirt and Zack and Mike enough to get through that course and this goes and do the schools and you have to sit down with the machete 50 days I'm about a flu and the Sahaba of the long time didn't even know anything about Islam no one knew what you know. And they were calling to Allah subhanaw taala now obviously I want to make something very clear to you that guys say something they don't know

00:07:19--> 00:07:48

that say something that you're gonna say well you know, you know Allah focus on La la la la No one's going to together be a chef. And that be sure that be short decide that you don't know when a man comes to a medic with 34 questions and some narration say 36 questions. He posed 36 masala 36 questions to Mr. Medic or 34 questions in my medic medic answered for and the rest he said Allahu Allah Allahu Allah Allah Allah

00:07:49--> 00:07:53

will say my Malik Malik some other people used to sign

00:07:54--> 00:08:01

up in Medina to American Medina la he just he just even issued a fatwa an amendment is did this occur

00:08:02--> 00:08:08

looked at your face on you? Don't worry. Oh, what's that car? Okay, blue Iris, blocking someone

00:08:09--> 00:08:36

and disturb doesn't handle so a blue arrows that's blocking someone's head. So it might Malik Rahim, Allah tala, the greatest scholar of Medina, the great scholar of Medina during the time in magmatic, Lucky we're talking about one of the most prominent scholars that the Islamic history has ever encountered. And he was asked 36 questions he answered for a response, the other 32 Allahu Allah. And

00:08:37--> 00:08:43

now you've got someone so ignorant, someone asked him a question. He doesn't want to back down too shy to say, Oh, no.

00:08:44--> 00:08:58

You know, you've got people that want to say they've got to say, and they've got an answer to everything. Even if they've done that they've got an answer to everything. Now, they're all back down. They don't wanna lower their prices, or no, no, no, there's nothing wrong with you. If someone asks you a question, I'll get back to you.

00:08:59--> 00:09:21

Or look into it. It's not degrading you. It's not gonna degrade. On the contrary, this is gonna give you honor, respect, it's not gonna dishonor it's gonna honor you. So the point is my brother, my sister in Islam, when you can call to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he prayed, and he didn't have a lot of zoa gel. No one said they have to know everything. So within the boundaries of what you know,

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

if you don't know something,

00:09:28--> 00:09:36

and if someone poses a question to you, someone asked you something sorry, or they're not asked to share or research or come back to you. Simple.

00:09:39--> 00:09:42

embrace Islam. abubakr embrace Islam.

00:09:43--> 00:09:58

In the bass Allah, Allah Allah, Allah revealed the revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I'll tell you something, what was the knowledge of the Prophet Mohammed Salah when he first revealed the revelation from Allah subhanaw taala I'm sorry, you know more than the Prophet Mohammed Salim that time What did he know? He knew

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

Hello. And yeah, you

00:10:03--> 00:10:15

know, later on in Ibiza Salaam starts, you know. So that moment of the problem homosassa start to receive revelation from Allah subhanaw taala. He didn't know much about Islam, but he called Allah subhanaw taala

00:10:16--> 00:10:36

to embrace Islam, at the very beginning of Islam, from Islam, not much. I assure you, every single one of you here right now knew more than 10 times from abeka knew when he first embraced Islam. And then abubaker when he came back with six people, he embraced Islam. Obviously,

00:10:37--> 00:10:49

one of the great scholars of the summer but later on, but when he first embraced Islam, I assure you he didn't know much about Islam, but that did not stop him from preaching and calling to Allah Subhana

00:10:50--> 00:11:08

Allah azza wa jal, why because embedded in the minds and hearts of every single Sahaba and every single person that embraces that you have the responsibility not only that you pray to Allah and you fast and you pay him to God, but you also have the responsibility according to Allah subhanaw taala before anything else.

00:11:09--> 00:11:22

And this is one of the things that we lack as a Muslim oma, the understanding and perception that I am responsible. I am responsible for calling to Allah subhanaw taala inviting people to Nineveh Allah.

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

So Allah subhana wa tada says,

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

at Walmart

00:11:29--> 00:11:51

go to the deen of Allah subhanaw taala with wisdom and with a good speech. So Rene, you have the responsibility to be understanding you're responsible for calling to Allah subhanaw taala and then when you initiate a calling to Allah subhanaw taala you also have the responsibility of going to Allah Zoda with wisdom even people with wisdom not bro you have to become Muslim. Come on bro. How can we not praying

00:11:53--> 00:12:30

for Allah? What kind of $1 is the luck once I was driving behind someone it's almost a Muslim car. And Mashallah, you know, we live in a non Muslim society. So out of the 100 cars up here are driving behind you, maybe 10 are going to be Muslim, non intrusive, especially in this area outside this area going on in opposite of the Cordova driving behind you among Muslims. And Mashallah this brother wants to preach, he's got a big sticker. Cologne, Epson the Eco tournament. Every soul shall taste this. This you're gonna be talking about the fears. This is a verse in the Quran, Karim. Allah knows.

00:12:31--> 00:12:32

And he has to understand that

00:12:33--> 00:12:44

for every moment, there's a moment of preaching, you can get to a marriage ceremony. And if we're a brother or sister, they want to tie the knot, and you want to share this talking about this.

00:12:46--> 00:13:02

Everything has its place. Everything has its place. And that's a character of the problem. Amateur loss of love in the face of law seems to be very selective, very selective with the content of his speech and the timing of speech. Look how smart This is the Hikmah

00:13:04--> 00:13:11

of the Prophet Muhammad sallahu wa sallam, he used to be very selective with the content of his speech and the timing of speech.

00:13:12--> 00:13:22

Because sometimes the content is right, but the timing is wrong. You have to be very selective. Okay, if this is the time of happiness, that you talk about something that's in line with happiness,

00:13:23--> 00:13:27

if it's a time of sorrow, that he talked about something that's a man with sorrow

00:13:28--> 00:13:35

in the recent loss, and that's his character, and that's the Dow that's the hikma what's Hickman Hickman means putting the right thing in the right time

00:13:38--> 00:14:15

is to do the right thing and put in the right thing and saying the right thing in the right time. So the right thing in the wrong time. That's not hikma. You could be saying the right thing. But it's the wrong time. That's not hikma. heckler is that you say the right thing. Do the right thing. Go for their thing in the right time to have to be very selective with the time and content you know you got brothers these days just because the hot Brian, you talked about the hockey, okay and the hackers place because if you want to promote and preach the half in the wrong time, then that half will turn into

00:14:17--> 00:14:32

you preaching becomes bottom now. Your responsibility is to captivate and attract people that didn't have a loss of panel data, not distract people away from the novelized soldier, you should be a source of attraction, not distraction.

00:14:33--> 00:14:41

He should make captivating people that didn't have a lot of penalty for not turning people away from the novelized origin and the base will constantly

00:14:42--> 00:14:53

given advice to the survival of the load. Whenever the problem hamazon is to deploy them on any day our tasks in Asana is to always say to them best Shirou Wallah to

00:14:55--> 00:14:57

attract people to the deen of Allah.

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

captivate people to the

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

of Allah subhanaw taala from the deen of Allah Zota sometimes you do have the Huck but the way you present it turns people away from the deen of Allah.

00:15:10--> 00:15:11

The way you present it,

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

you turn people away from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:15:16--> 00:15:25

Sometimes you want to do say you do you want to sell something or you do want to do something that's right. But the way you present it as people that didn't have alliances origin.

00:15:26--> 00:15:42

If I want to tell every single one of you listen, if you're not gonna listen to me right now, I'm going to be very upset for me and you guys are understanding, you're not going to understand me this I'm talking about. But then I could say this, and hamdullah today is a beautiful day where most lecture, thank you for coming, and I want everyone to pay attention because you're gonna benefit. Everyone's gonna be listening.

00:15:44--> 00:15:47

same message, but the way you convey it

00:15:49--> 00:16:03

the way he conveyed it, it's not the same thing is, with most of the people out there. It's not that we are disagreeing with the message. Even those who are extreme, sometimes, it's not about the message, the way you convey it.

00:16:04--> 00:16:20

The message is, they will all agree to the message. We'll all agree to the message, but how are you going to portray it? Hang on to convey it? And obviously that requires skills. And the first thing that allows an OTA wants to see from me is hikma wisdom.

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

one more way that it has good speech.

00:16:24--> 00:16:33

Good speech sometimes you've got people that want to preach and promote Islam and what people didn't realize, but that becomes very intimidating.

00:16:34--> 00:17:11

intimidating. They look at you they speak to listen Hey, you have to be Muslim, you're gonna get to the Hellfire even I'm gonna pray Allah subhanaw taala is gonna punish you. You're this you're that you're scum. Look at you this. That's not good speech. You are turning people away from dinner. realizada if this person had any interest in Islam now has absolutely no interest in Islam. If this Muslim brother wanted to pray, now you turned off from praying, but then you could have you could convey your message in a nice way. One more Eagleton Hassan a good speech. Allah subhanaw taala wants to see from you when you speak to people you speak to them nicely.

00:17:12--> 00:17:14

In Atlanta, sinasabi American wallet

00:17:15--> 00:17:20

calm you'll never ever captivate people ever. With your money. You can win someone's heart with your money.

00:17:21--> 00:17:35

Your Man is not gonna win someone over. But you could win some elbow demons. More small. Good speech. Nice word can change someone's life. Look at the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem, listen to the story.

00:17:37--> 00:17:38

Before

00:17:40--> 00:17:55

the drone swords, cipher slowly, the drone sort of Allah subhanaw taala before he became the drone sort of Allah xojo what was called the naughty he was a very tough, rough sword against Islam.

00:17:56--> 00:18:23

It was a very tough, rough weapon against Islam. Even though the problem and masala have broken and bent so many sides by killing Muslims wanna hardly please for over two decades. He embraces them just for peace before the death of brahma homosassa. Out of the 23 years of the prophecy of the problem, Amazon Khalid was a severe enemy against Islam for about 18 years.

00:18:24--> 00:18:26

When the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:18:27--> 00:18:34

traveled from Medina to Mecca to perform Umrah and that was normal after a day after the hydrophobia treaty.

00:18:35--> 00:19:14

And one of the agreements of the problem Amazon has agreed to with the people of course the problem homosassa will jump from Medina to Mecca Narottama can stay in Mecca for three days a night it was the problem Amazon perform Umrah another problem homosassa will leave part of the agreement of the people of grace will give room and space for the problem Amazon's Adam and his people for them to perform. In the bass Allah do Salah travel from Medina to Mecca and entered Mecca and Mecca was under the control. Mecca was under the leadership of the people of Croatia. So obviously we never saw them entered Mecca and also performed Amara and then we saw some looked around and he saw all

00:19:14--> 00:19:18

the trips, all the hierarchies of the people except

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

now

00:19:23--> 00:19:28

he is the brother of Carnival he was one of the followers of the problem himself and he was one of the companions

00:19:30--> 00:19:37

of the Prophet Mohammed Sawsan them, amazingly, to see the character of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the one that

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

had acted upon the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the verse in which a lot of adult Allah says, Allah subhanaw taala bigger but Hickman has an a goal to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala with wisdom and good speech, that that's attributed in the character of the problem.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

In the base of a lot I sort of looked around while he was in Mecca, and obviously we're talking about Mecca during that time on the problem homosassa

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

on camera, it was under the rain and it was under the control and leadership of the people of Croatia foreign guests the problem amor de la sala. What's the problem Amazon is looking around, he saw everyone, all the hierarchies and all the trees of the people of Christ.

00:20:15--> 00:20:17

So he never speaks to

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

the brother of hardcoded, who is a Muslim

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

is a Muslim, he's the brother of him normally, he is one of the worst people at that time against Muslims.

00:20:32--> 00:21:13

So the problem commissar Salaam looks around and he sees all the hierarchies and all the lives of the people of Christ. Say us, Allah will lead him normally is the absence of harmony. He as somebody who is your brother, also all the people of Christ, and all the traits except your brother, so I will let them know when he was very straightforward with the problem. Hamza was born with a profile as I said, O Messenger of Allah. My brother can't stand you. He he he gots that's how much my brother he, my brother hates you so much. My brother hates you so much. He could not even bear to see you walking around, or even doing the water on the cover. So he just that's how much he hates

00:21:13--> 00:21:13

you.

00:21:15--> 00:21:26

In other words, my brother had the Mali Hydra more than anyone else. So what was the response of the Prophet Mohammed Al Salam? You imagine any luck? You put yourself in that position? What else come

00:21:28--> 00:21:34

if he hates me, no, I hate him even more. He hates my guts. I hate his guts and his head.

00:21:35--> 00:21:37

That attitude. Now, hikma?

00:21:39--> 00:22:19

You know why? Because we mix our egos with our dollar. Yes, we mix our egos and our personal conflict with our dour. What do you think the reaction of the Prophet Mohammed Salah was the problem homosassa report back and say you know, stuffing shoveler he gets to the hellfire. Allah loaded though. That's our reaction. And then we saw some was amazing. In every salsa was that Mandela told him to call to the Dean of allies out of hikma center, we saw some replies back to alvalade after we told them on messenger Allah, my brother hates you so much to the extent that he could not even bear to see you in Mecca. So he left Mecca.

00:22:20--> 00:22:29

The rest of the of the people across the state there. So the problem hamazon said, you know, I'm so amazed to some of the holidays, I see a lot of wisdom. In Holland.

00:22:31--> 00:22:32

Also a lot of wisdom.

00:22:33--> 00:22:41

In holiday, intelligence and smartness and harlot. Someone like himself, he can be a great asset to Islam.

00:22:42--> 00:22:59

I'm amazed to see some of his intelligence and wisdom. To this day. He hasn't embraced Islam Allahu Akbar. Look at the broadness and the open mindedness of the Prophet Mohammed salsa and the Open Heart of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and bringing people didn't have Allah subhanaw taala

00:23:01--> 00:23:14

just asked about someone, and the response is this person hates you so much. So the problem homosassa says, I'm surprised to someone like Khalid with his intelligence slotless to this day hasn't embraced Islam. So what did they do? Well, he didn't normally do

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

it normally. The other one What did he do? He struggled a lot and he sent his brother You know, up after the problem Amazon Salah, listen to the problem Hamas awesome says this Sunday. He says some of this intelligence and smartness and wisdom, wisdom I'm surprised to this day that he has not even embraced Islam.

00:23:36--> 00:23:36

So what happened he

00:23:38--> 00:23:39

turned him upside down.

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

When he receives a letter,

00:23:43--> 00:23:48

knowingly the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is upset from him. And

00:23:51--> 00:23:58

the problem is saying about him, someone someone that has a lot of intelligence of wisdom. Yeah, he hasn't embraced Islam.

00:24:00--> 00:24:04

His mindset changed and straight away he went beyond the problem is

00:24:10--> 00:24:11

wisdom

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

and wisdom.

00:24:15--> 00:24:33

Now when he someone when he someone that's so hateful and spiteful to Islam, the first thing that we do are the scum Allah destroy him Allah subhanho wa Taala taken down lots of I know the holidays, struggle against them.

00:24:36--> 00:24:37

Like draw from

00:24:39--> 00:24:42

them, open their hearts, open their minds,

00:24:43--> 00:24:49

you know, or then think Has anyone had reached to the level of continuity then is hatred towards Islam as much as hard to

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

change their hearts? Maybe Allah subhanaw taala will change their hearts. Maybe Allah subhanaw taala will change the hearts of those politicians and Islam.

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

Maybe Allah subhanaw taala will change the hearts of those who are right wing extremists, or what's the premises who hate Islam, anti Muslims and Islam either Allah subhanaw taala will change their hearts.

00:25:13--> 00:25:19

Don't you ever be despondent and despair in anyone that Allah subhanho wa Taala changes are a lot of change.

00:25:21--> 00:25:46

A lot more change there. At the end of the day, you have a responsibility. What's your responsibility, though? Elizabeth little bigger bill Hekmati. One more edited Hassan acotar the deen of Allah subhanaw taala with wisdom and good speech occur. Also Subhana Allah look at someone's face and I could see in their face. Yes. Iris au 34 already made the announcement here. The three heiresses what

00:25:47--> 00:25:54

a lot of yeses, Jani and hamdulillah you know what then in the years that comes into the carpark now more years is in the EU? Mm

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

hmm.

00:25:57--> 00:26:03

Okay, 30 for anyone that's locked in the car just gonna move your car please. Is that better than company again?

00:26:04--> 00:26:24

Do you know what type well I don't come in. So my brothers or my sisters are important for us when we go to Allah subhanaw taala. We follow the instructions of allies on how the Quran in which Allah subhanaw taala says although he does read the bigger bin Hekmati, one more person and the first Hadith here in the book of Rio de Sala Han, and Abby.

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

Ignore Salah matar

00:26:29--> 00:27:13

Kiruna frequently homies in Mara fatale la hora, Julia Abdur Rahman La Hoya de to Anika kirtana, Coolio sakala Amma inaho you have not only Minda like Annie Accra who and Mila calm we're in the at the hawala camera Canada so lots and lots I'm either gonna be here Mahabharata samity Allah Allah Subhana Allah Luca beautiful this hadith is so he will not have to live in a Masada de la Donna. I made mention of that last week we have the lovely massarotti when he was in Iraq, one of the cities of Iraq and he was a responsible scholar to teach people and impart the deen of Islam to these people, teach people Islam or teach them. The dean of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam has

00:27:13--> 00:27:46

been taught to them by the prophet de salatu wa sallam. He was very selective in teaching people every Thursday, what now Thursday, you know, so it was very selective and teaching people the deen of Allah subhana wa tada and giving and giving sermons on Thursdays. So one person came up to me said, Well, why your sermons are so beautiful. Can you give us a sermon every single day? It said, No, I'm doing exactly what the problem homosassa Mr. Do never seems to be very selective with the times that he used to give sermons and lessons. And I'm very selective in following the teachings in the footsteps of the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the reason the problem homosassa lamb

00:27:46--> 00:28:06

is to be selective in the timings of given a sermons and lessons is because the Prophet Muhammad sallahu wa sallam is to be mindful of not turning people away from sermons and making people bored. So Pamela in a lot, these sort of things that we need to keep in mind. So I'm going to get some Messiah, some scholars, they'll sit down, give people a lesson for two hours.

00:28:07--> 00:28:14

But we're not people's attention span, you know, people just attention span before used to be 12 minutes. Now it's eight minutes.

00:28:15--> 00:28:29

Before it used to be 12 minutes. Now, people's attention span doesn't even exceed eight minutes. And that's why it's an AMA live it's a choice between a long lecture, that's about 45 minutes and a short later, that's two minutes straight away. Your click on the three minute one

00:28:31--> 00:28:46

people's attention span is becoming very small, very limited. It's becoming more shorter and shorter. So Pamela people don't want to pay attention too long. And I could send some people I wanted this guy gonna finish you know, finish very soon, Dory, but the

00:28:47--> 00:29:00

but so Panama sometimes is done for people, they go for hours and hours and hours, especially when someone gets up and speaks to a group of young kids. their attention spans 10 minutes, the maximum sedation between them is about 1015 minutes.

00:29:01--> 00:29:14

Anything beyond that, it's like you know, you want a cup, and you're just pouring you just pouring the water in that cup, and just everything's just flowing at the end of the day. That's it. You're pouring water in the cup and the rest of the water or the remainder of the water just is just

00:29:16--> 00:29:19

dripping over. Just it's there's no need for you to put more water.

00:29:20--> 00:29:41

So my brothers and my sister important for us to be very selective when it comes to giving Dawa and calling to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's the character of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, when Mr. Bernier Cerro de la casa Mata Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam who in the Tula salaat in the Tula salata, Raja de Vaca, sorry, hottie min

00:29:44--> 00:29:59

in atonement for Abu Salah tawassul. So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in this Hadith, the people that prolong this Allah and shorten the hookup and he the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

is referring to a lot of drama. So those who prolong this a lot shorter than the hotbar it is an indication it is an indication of their understanding of their religion. It is an indication of their understanding of their religion so the sun is when it comes to a lot of drama that you prolong your Salah and shorten your haba now know, oh no, no, no percent of us including myself, we prolong our hotbar and shorten our Salah. Is there anything wrong with that? Now there's nothing wrong with that. They just have to keep something in mind during the time of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam the Sahaba is the attempt, if not five daily prayers with the problem homosassa at least

00:30:37--> 00:30:39

for daily praise with a profile a salsa,

00:30:41--> 00:31:06

salsa and they used to listen to all the sermons and all the lessons on all the lectures of the Prophet Mohammed salsa every single day now. Most Muslims The only time they attend a Masjid why gathering or religious gathering of congregations Salatu Juma. So it's an opportunity for the Imam to deliver a long sermon in order for them to understand that they know the laws of Hamilton. So it is an opportunity.

00:31:07--> 00:31:30

Should we make our hookup shorter and our Salah longer? It depends on your crowd. But right now, I am of the opinion that no take advantage capitalize on that attendance of people come to a lot of drama teach them their religion because that's the only time 90% of the people attend. These are attendance, a lot of drama. That's the only religious some of the throughout the entire week.

00:31:32--> 00:31:34

You compare that to the cyber of the law to

00:31:35--> 00:31:38

the Sahaba was the problem hammer sauce on every single prayer.

00:31:39--> 00:31:53

And they were listening to the problem every single day. So it's a lot of drama is not really something that's a call. So about the drama. As I go religiously, yes, but I'm talking about the hookah the sermon of Salaam to them. That's not really

00:31:54--> 00:32:29

what the problem Amazon has to say. In the last six seven days pride Sultan Juma Marana, 100% of the Muslims, he comes a lot of drama before and after, they're not gonna hit anything. That's the only service that's a religious sermon they're going to be hearing. So yes, we should be capitalizing on that. And that's why most of the scholars center it's different to the time of the Prophet Mohammed Salah during the time of the problem homosassa the Sahaba were listening to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam every single day they were listening to the Prophet Muhammad SAW salam, after every single prayer that the problem has asked me to speak. But right now you've got Muslims and non

00:32:29--> 00:32:41

Muslims will capitalize on that, and try and teach people their religion. So if it's that 15 minutes or half an hour, then focus on that talk. And the prayer will be shorter. But in a way, this Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam,

00:32:42--> 00:33:03

in which the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. He's talking about the power of a reflection of someone's understanding of Islam is that they prolong this Allah for Salah drama and shorten the hookah. And that's how they used to be during the time of the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim. Yes, the problem is to go for 10 minutes and maybe the Salah is to go for 1015 minutes.

00:33:05--> 00:33:25

But right now you can't do that. And even if he did, there's nothing wrong with it. But people are coming that's the only time that people come to the Muslim models or just capitalize on their presence and teach of their religion for them to understand their religion. Otherwise you're going to lose a good opportunity here and that's why you find a lot of them sure but you know what some people even have exaggerate sometimes he got to some hotel Mashallah one hour and a half papa.

00:33:26--> 00:34:00

Okay one hour and a half football Mr. Work ever see especially in a Muslim country with Friday's off. But when you but most of the brothers and sisters these days, especially the brothers is a you know, he could say the sisters that don't have to attend a lot of drama. But most of the brothers are working and they've got a one hour break and you got to go for one hour hookah guy and then another 10 minutes for Salah, and they need another 1015 minutes for them to get back to work. If killed their break. You have to be reasonable. You have to be reasonable. And that's why especially in the city, we have about 10,000 Muslims and that's why inflamation minimum 10,000 Muslims working

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

in the city make it super short. Here you may usually start from 115 to 145 unless I'm there I'll make it 150 5% hamdulillah. So 150 to 145 half an hour was reasonable but because most of the people in this area they either self employed or they control their time they come for half an hour descender but in the city blocks of Hamlet I was in the city and I went to one of them something which isn't haven't done a very good to see the but a number of masala pray areas of prayer halls in the city where a lot of drama is delivered and people can get into

00:34:30--> 00:34:59

a lab that's prayer halls and for them to pray their praise or praise the Lord the Lord they in the City of Hampton, it's good to see something like that whenever I had something longer than 15 years ago. And you've got 10,000 Muslims who are working in the city these people have not one hour break. Give them half an hour for the for themselves for them to get have lunch or for this for them to at least go back to work. So it's good for us to keep that in mind. What about the massarotti allowed carvana Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mullainathan YG let me

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

Hello, hello everyone, once

00:35:04--> 00:35:13

again to the end of the day so hear about even though sorry, Alana makes mentioned the problem homosassa One day, he gave us a sermon.

00:35:14--> 00:35:17

And he delivered a very effective speech.

00:35:18--> 00:35:55

In resolve, the people start to cry, and the heart was soften. So you could see the impact of the sermon of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is to change people's lives. And that's something I've given advice to myself, and to every person that delivers a speech. What's the purpose of delivering a speech? Is it for the purpose of people saying you're a good speaker? Or is it for the purpose of changing people's lives? Because depending on your intentions, what Allah subhanaw taala gives you in return, if your intention for you to change people's lives, even if your speech is not powerful, you're gonna change people's lives. But if your intention is for people to say you're a

00:35:55--> 00:36:12

good speaker, people walk out so much Allah, He spoke very well. He's a powerful speaker, but not changing impact in their life. So as a public speaker, as someone who's given a speech, as someone who's given us a lot of drama, someone is given a lesson, you need to correct your intention before you want other people to correct the intention.

00:36:13--> 00:36:17

What's the purpose of being given a speech to change people's life? Allah subhanaw taala will give you that

00:36:18--> 00:36:35

and people will change even if you didn't say the most powerful speeches but if your intention for people to say Masha Allah, very powerful speech, very powerful speech, then that's your intention. You know, Subhana Allah, sometimes I say things Me Myself, I don't even know I said, I'm sorry, you mean more so but even though I said,

00:36:36--> 00:36:44

deliberately do that. And then I want to get my feedback. And I just want to ask people after that, I tell them, you know, how was the speech? What was so good?

00:36:45--> 00:36:54

What did you learn? [???], Mashallah, that was a powerful speech. handler. What are the points that you picked up while the shifty Maha?

00:36:55--> 00:36:59

Paula, Brother, you broke my heart now? What did you learn?

00:37:00--> 00:37:18

Zero. Nothing was a powerful speech and we've Maha Allahu Akbar. Okay, but what did you come out with? What are the points? What are the tips? What are the lessons they learned out of it? Zero powerful speech handling them? Why?

00:37:19--> 00:37:31

Maybe because you love this guy. But at the end of the day, what did you learn? It makes me a lot more happier when he said I will not share your speech wasn't powerful. But there's one thing that I learned what is it one thing to handle? I'm happy now.

00:37:33--> 00:38:00

You know, how many times to do that a lot of the times what did you learn out of my speech, you know, powerful speech is less powerful, but it's about the substance. And now these days, we've got a lot of people. We've got a lot of days my last encounter with them. But it's all about the power of speech by empty, empty substance, an empty content, the content is empty, and the substance empty.

00:38:01--> 00:38:11

The content is empty. And the substance empty this bottle Mashallah, you know what? The bottle is very good, very nice. It's made out of gold. But there's nothing in an

00:38:13--> 00:38:18

empty substance. What's the point? Let me let it be

00:38:19--> 00:38:24

$1,000 bottle. But if it's empty from the inside, what benefit is this model to you?

00:38:25--> 00:39:03

We need to have substance in our speech. And that's why the last panel Darla, he says Elizabeth Rebecca bill Hekmati, were more able to last on a culture that didn't have a lot of panel data with wisdom and good speech. That's the substance that we want good speech, something for people to learn. Something for people to walk out of that space to walk out of that lesson to walk out of the hotbar to walk out of that lecture was something at least something and if there's something I want you to walk out of tomorrow, with though Elizabeth hikma tomorrow Dr. Hassan when you call to Allah subhana wa tada Kota Allah azza wa jal with wisdom and good speech. I'm not saying I want you to

00:39:03--> 00:39:23

also walk out of here with you are responsible for the Dhamma and the calling to Allah subhanaw taala what the prophet loves the Sahaba love the scholars lock every single dime a man on the face of this earth molars panel data makers from amongst those who listen and he act upon with a listen inshallah we'll continue with this next week maybe in the light Allah.
