Are we let him in the shadow regime Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim lesson number 295. Sort of No, I am number one to 28.
So that no is a Maki sola. And it has only 28 verses about 200 words and almost 1000 poodle. So it's a very short surah.
And this surah is all about new, early hustler, as the name of the solar tells us that this was mainly about, you know, hello, Sam. And the entire solar, in fact, is the story of new Elisa. And his story is a story of Subbu. It is the story of patience, the story of novellas and as mentioned many times in the Quran, how he called his people, how they refuse to believe in Him, how he built the ship. in solitude, we have learned the details of how the ship was sailing in the flood, and how eventually the flood subsided the water, it subsided and eventually New Zealand and those who believed in Him, they came out to the ship and life began again on this planet. This order is
slightly different meaning the story that is mentioned in this sort of slightly different in the sense that the main focus over here is Darwin. How he called people to Allah soprano.
As you know that the theme of this Jews is Darwin in Allah as well. And over here in this surah Allah tells us about the methodology that no hairless lamb adopted the manner that he had in conveying the message. That is the main focus in this order. If you think about it knew how to Salam he did Tao for how long, 950 years. And in this entire time, how many people believed in him? About 80? If you think about it, on average, one person believed every 15 years, one person believed every 15 years. So just imagine how much effort he had put in. So how is it that he did that hour? How is it that he called people to Allah, it wasn't that his efforts were any less. It wasn't that he did
not work any hard. No, he worked very hard. He worked nonstop. He called people constantly. So there was nothing that fell short in his dharma. So that is what is mentioned over here. Because this is a great comfort for the day. Because sometimes it happens that you're calling people to align, you don't see any results. You're working so hard, but you hardly see any results. Sometimes you're talking to your own siblings, you want them to come closer to a loss of panel data, but no matter what you talk them about, it doesn't make any difference. So in this case, should you get disappointed, don't get disappointed. Don't lose heart. Look at the example of new ideas. So
in the previous surah, we learned that the prophets are allowed a certain was told first with sovereign jameelah be patient with a beautiful patience and what is beautiful patience, that a person doesn't even show he's being patient, that he bears his situation in such a calm way. He doesn't show any negative reaction at all.
So this story of new headless RAM is a story of patients that how so patiently, he kept calling people to Allah. They refuse to believe in him. They walked at him, they rejected him. They beat him up, they physically abused him. But nothing made a difference to his efforts. As each day went by, his efforts only increased.
Now know Harrison, as you all know, Who was he? He was the first messenger. He was the first real soon, whom Allah subhanaw taala had sent to the people. According to an authentic narration, we learned that there were approximately 10 generations between Adam and his Salaam and new Hadassah. And these 10 generations, they were all Muslim, meaning all of them worshipped the last panel data, there was no shake. Obviously, people have their shortcomings, but they were upon Islam.
And at the time of new Harrison, and what had happened, shake started, how it started. You all are familiar with it. But there were some religious people. And there are mentioned in the surah as well. There were some very righteous people, very obedient people. When they passed away, she had long came to the people. And he suggested to them that why don't you draw their pictures and why don't you draw their images, because you don't want to forget them. You don't want them to be forgotten. You want their stories to remain because they were a source of great inspiration for you. So you want that to continue for the following generations as well.
And initially, it just started as a memory and eventually turned into idol worship.
So Allah subhanaw taala sent neuheiten salaam as a messenger. And remember he was a first messenger and there are many evidences from the Quran and Sunnah that also tell us about that. Amongst them is the hadith of intercession, the hadith of Shiva, that remember on the Day of Judgment, what's going to happen, people are going to go to
Different prophets, different messengers. First of all people are going to go to other Mollison and then they're going to go to New holism. And when they go to him, they will say that for your Kowloon, a new in Africa, and our world will soon enter
that Oh, no, indeed, you were the first messenger to the people of this earth. So this Hadees shows to us that he was the first messenger
because who is our soul?
Who is someone who has been given a message to convey to the people so he was the first one, to be given a message that he had to deliver to the people? And how is it that he delivered that is mentioned in this one? Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
in our Salah new Han illa COVID-19 Indeed, We sent Newhart a salon to his people saying, under omaka that you warn your people men probably do home either leave before their comes to them a painful punishment.
Allah sent new highness Salaam as a messenger to who to his people. What does it show that his message was only for who the people that he lived amongst, he wasn't sent to the aalameen he wasn't sent as a messenger to the people of the world, but rather he was sent as a messenger to only his community. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was a messenger sent to who
all of the people, not just the arrows, but all of the people. Some say that at that time, this was the only community living on the earth because it was very early, only 10 generations after Adam or his son. Um, so you can imagine that people lived all in the same place, there was only a single community at that time. So then how do we understand illa comi that new Halina was sent as a messenger to only them, not to the jinn. Because remember the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was sent as a messenger to both the people as well as the jinn.
So he was sent as a messenger to his people, and ends in and what is it that Allah subhanaw taala commanded him, that you warn comarca your people, warn your people against what, against the consequences of shirk. warn your people against punishment that may befall them if they continue in this way, and comarca and warn them so that they can save themselves mean calmly and yet to whom before it comes to them, what comes to them, or they're gonna leave a painful punishment before a painful punishment comes to them in this dunya warned, because if they do not believe, then they cannot save themselves from the punishment.
And this is something that every director should be driven by that the punishment of luck and descended anytime. If you think about it, if a person dies as a disbeliever, then can you make the offer them? No, you cannot. And what's understood that whoever does shake for called Holloman lohardagan agenda. Well, now, a person who does ship and dies in that state, then his final abode is what Hellfire, and Allah has made gender haram upon him. So before he dies, before she dies, before death comes to them before the punishment of a law comes to them, warn them, because once they are punished, then little cafe de la sallahu their fear then for the disbelievers there is no averting
of the punishment.
So this is what the diary should be driven by. In the previous lecture, we had a discussion on how no person should say that since I am not perfect since I'm not learned since I don't do armor and everything I know, therefore, I'm not going to do you know, whatever little you know, you must convey, because the people need it.
Think about it. You know what La ilaha illAllah means and if you don't tell other people about it, and they die in that state, you know what their end result is? You know what their fate is? eternity and hellfire.
Is that fair? That you just think you're not good enough? And this is why you're not telling people new Hello, sir, I was told and under Obama come in public to
warn them. Look at the sense of urgency over here. The punishment can come any time. Why are you delaying? What are you waiting for?
Allah He said, new Hollis and I'm headed out to his people. And he said he called me all my people in the local Nero movie. Indeed, I am to you a clear Warner. Meaning My message is very clear. It's not hidden. It's not ambiguous. It's not that I have a hidden agenda. No. My message is very, very clear to you.
So we see that know her Listen, and when he did our, what was the first thing he did? He made it very clear to the people what his objective
was what His goal was. Because the other person must know why you are calling them why you are telling them what you're telling them.
If they don't know why you're telling them, if they don't know who you are, if they don't know what you're saying, then are they going to trust you? No, they won't even get what you're saying. So it's very important that the purpose of why you're telling the people must be clarified to them. So he said, Yeah, call me in Nila coma do movie. And look at the way he addresses the people. Yeah, call me. What does that show?
concern love well, wishing. And it also shows all my people meaning, I am one of you. We belong to the same nation.
Because the moment you distance yourself from the other person, the moment you cut off yourself from the other, then he doesn't trust you. He doesn't want to listen to you. Already what happens? People see you walking with a hijab on and immediately they feel different immediately. They feel threatened. And they look at you differently. They talk to you differently. And they are afraid they're nervous. So it's very important that you make the other person comfortable. But I'm not a threat to you. Yeah, oh me. Oh my people in the local Madeira movie, I am to you a clear Warner. And what was his warning? What was his main message? A nearby de la her? What the Who were the only
three things mainly? First of all, that you worship Allah. Secondly, what the who, who fear Him. And thirdly, also you're only obey me. Or Buddha law, meaning worship only him worship Allah alone, a yak and our Buddha. And remember that all of the messengers of Allah, what did they do? They called people to the worship of Allah alone. This was their main focus, they connected people to Allah, that you should worship Him. So when we are doing Dawa, as well, what should be our main focus? Just increasing the number of Muslims know what should be the main focus that people fulfill the purpose of their lives? People fulfill the reason for what they were created and what is that? worship
Secondly, Fear Allah, what the who, who? Were the worship of Allah is necessary, fearing him is also very necessary. Why? Because if a person does not fear Him, then will he obey Allah? No. Will he fear disobeying him? No. Because what does that mean? That a person does what Allah has commanded and stay away from what he has forbidden, so what Turku who also have the core of him.
And then thirdly, after you're only obey me, obey the messenger, call people to the obedience of the messenger. Why? Because obeying the messenger is in reality, obeying who Allah soprano Dinah manual there it was hula soccer, the author of whoever obeys the messenger then in fact, he has obeyed who Allah soprano.
Now these I add, especially this one, it shows to us how, or to what a person should call people to meaning when a person is doing Dawa? How should he do dour? What should be the main focus? What should be the main target?
Because sometimes you don't know how to start. I mean, should I tell this person just to become Muslim? Should I tell this person to believe in the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? What should be your main goal? Why do we do that? Well, what is the objective of Dawa? What's the purpose of the hour? This ayah tells us three things.
What are they worship of Allah alone, fearing Allah. And thirdly, following the messenger obeying the messenger, these three things are essential.
And it also shows to us how we should go about calling people to Allah. Like for example, you do their work, people become Muslim. Now once they become Muslim, or it's possible that a person is already Muslim, but you tell them about the deen. So when you tell them, what should you draw their attention to worship of Allah? How to worship Allah. So for example, somebody becomes serious about the deen they're interested in the deen because of what you told them. Don't just leave them. Tell them as to how to worship Allah as well. Teach them the ways for example, how to pray, what fasting is about.
They could have a loss apparent out of various ways of worshipping Allah that should be one of the main focuses.
Then secondly, nurture the core as well. Deep such things that are means of purification such as good character, etiquette, these things are also very important because sometimes what happens, for example, when a person becomes a Muslim, all the focus is on what, how to pray, how to recite the Quran, how to pass the month of Ramadan, all of these issues. It becomes very technical
Very complicated. Yes, these are important essential, but at the same time there should also be this spirituality, there should also be love of Allah, there should also be fear of Allah. And that cannot be developed just by teaching
that is developed How? By teaching about good character, teaching about the proper etiquette that Allah subhanaw taala has taught his heart softeners This is also very important, because of the love of Allah is not there, if the fear is not there, then it becomes very difficult for a person to follow the rules. So, where you tell them the rules, don't forget spirituality, and then also present the messenger as a role model.
So, you're only present the messenger as a role model.
Tell them the stories of the prophets are allowed to sell them tell them the stories of the companions as well.
And all of these three things are necessary one cannot be compromised for the other.
Then new Holly Sarah mentioned to them, the benefit of believing the benefit of worshipping Allah, of having taqwa of Allah of obeying new harness, that what is the benefit? First of all, yo filla comienza newbie comm Allah will forgive you of your sins. When you believe when you worship Allah, when you leave your ways, your faults with what's going to happen, Allah will forgive you for your sins.
Earlier, there was warning. Now the Euro movie, I am a clear Warner against the punishment of Allah. And then there is also good news. If you don't believe there is punishment. But if you believe look at the benefit, Allah will forgive you for your sins. Notice the word men over here man has been understood in two ways. First of all, it has been said that mean over years of ban, what does ban mean? explanatory so it means all of your sense. So when you will believe when you will worship Allah, then what will happen all of your sins, meaning all of your previous sins will be forgiven.
And that is a reality. That when a person accepts Islam, when a person leaves ship, does the Oba becomes a believer begins to worship Allah, then all of his previous sins are forgiven, remember the story of
when he became a Muslim, and he asked Prophet sallallahu Sallam to extend out his hand so he could take the buyer and the altar to cardizem. But then he withdrew it. And then he said that I will believe but there was only one condition that all my previous sins should be forgiven. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him that for in the Islamic jubu, McCann acaba who, that when a person becomes a believer, then what happens, all of his previous sins are forgiven. So your fellow comenzado become just imagine all of your sins will be forgiven, if you believe all of them, look at the hope that he's given them.
Some have said that men over here means that some of that he will forgive for you some of your sins and which ones are they, the ones that you've committed up until now, what you do from now on, after becoming a believer, then for that What does a person have to do?
For that a person has to do is to fall. If a person was a disbeliever, he became a believer, all of his previous sins are forgiven. But then after becoming a Muslim doesn't mean he can go on doing whatever he wants, saying that, you know, I'm a revert. So therefore my previous sins have forgiven no men shows that only the previous sins are forgiven what you do now, you have to do Tobin is
so your fellow comenzando become when you come in as a Muslim? And he will defer you until a specified time. You see, what does that mean to defer to delay? So in other words, he will let you live until a fixed time, what is this fixed time, the time of your death?
Because when a messenger of Allah is sent to people, and the people refuse to believe, then what happens? The punishment of Allah descends on them, and all of them die from the young to the old, the infants, to the elderly, men, women, everybody dies all at the same time. And that's not how naturally people die. Naturally, how do people die over time, the elderly die first, and then the younger ones that die much later. So you hear Camila edgerly masama. What does this mean? That he will let you live until your time of death, meaning he will not punish you.
He will not punish you, but rather he will let you live until the end of your individual terms. You are Hideko. illa ajilon masama. Some have said that when you come in our editor masama literally means that he will prolong for you your life. Not that he will let you live for whatever lifetime
As decreed for you know, you believe and literally Allah will make your life longer.
If 60 years was written for you now you live for 80 years, your head Camila ajilon masama. And some have said that this doesn't mean that literally the life will be extended by let's say 20 years or 15 years. But what it means is that there will be more Baraka in your lifetime. So you will be able to accomplish much more, you'll be able to achieve much more. For example, in a life for 50 years, a person does what another would do in a life of 80 years. So, you believe you worship Allah, you have to call him you follow the messenger, look at the benefits, Allah will forgive you your sins, when you come in agilely masama.
in Niger, Allah he indeed the address the term that is fixed by Allah, Elijah, when it comes to you, it will never be deferred, meaning once the punishment that if a lot decides to send upon you, once it comes, it can never be deferred. And once your lifetime, it is to expire, it can never be extended, low quantum tournament, if you only know meaning if you know this, then believe.
Now in this ayah, there are many things that we can learn. First of all, design shows to us the benefit of accepting Islam. And what is that?
What does that
mean the lubicon where you come in as a Muslim? Secondly, this also shows to us that obedience to the messenger worshipping Allah subhanaw taala performance of good deeds. What does that do? It is a means of increasing one's lifetime.
When a person performs good deeds, when a person busies himself in the worship of Allah, you obeys the messenger. And what's the benefit, that his lifetime is prolonged, is made longer, he's given a longer life to live.
Or that there's Baraka in his life, he's able to achieve more out of the limited years he is given to live.
For example, if you think about an email, and never we, he died very young. But in the 30, some years that he lived, how much did he accomplish?
Do you know about Mr. manoli? What did you write the elbow sila hain? And that book is one of the main books of how do you think about it that is studied today. Similarly, he's done so much other work. So if you think about it, 30 some years, but look at all that he achieved in that time, Baraka in lifetime that a person accomplished so much more. How does this happen? When a person obeys Allah and performs good deeds, and amongst the good deeds that prolong the person's life is what slipped out over him?
Joining ties with their relatives swillers to join. So what does it mean they're cutting off from you, but you're joining?
We think that's what I thought our aim is just to maintain good ties with people who are good with you know, this is different those who are cutting off from you, you're joining with them. So those who are not talking to you, you're talking to them, those who are ignoring you, you're not ignoring them. Those who are being unfair with you, you are being fair with them, this is what it is. And it's difficult. It requires a lot of patience. So when a person does little for him, what does that result in longer life Baraka in life?
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said lazy to fill ermotti inland this
lazy to fill ermotti inland wish nothing but bear righteousness is what increases in a person's lifetime. Well are you do law in law and nothing averts the decree except for the law.
That we also learn over here in the side that when a person is obedient to Allah subhanaw taala. On one side, his sins are forgiven, you have a local window to become.
And on the other side, what happens when you come into a dilemma sama? Allah prolongs his life for him. Why? So that he can do more good?
Why would Allah give a longer life to a person to live so that he can do more good? So what is it show that when a person is obedient to Allah, a his sins are forgiven? And B is given the opportunity to do more good.
When Allah extends the lifetime of a believer, why is it so so that he can increase in his good so that he can have more reward? And for this video for a sinful person, ally extends his lifetime for him as well sometimes, which is what we learned as rest right? Why is that so?
that a person may continue in his sin, so that in the hereafter he has more punishment.
Then we also see over here, that no matter how long of a life a person lives, eventually there is a Julian masama
There is a fixed time for him to die.
So what is it
that the good a person does in this dunya? Is he going to receive its benefit in the dunya only know,
the place to, or the time to enjoy the fruit of your effort is where, in the hereafter in general, because this dunya is a test, it's not permanent, it will come to an end. So when it comes to an end, the good that a person has done, where will he enjoy its benefits in the hereafter.
Then also we learn with regards to Dawa when calling people to Allah, that when a person is doing Dawa, he should give warning, but at the same time, we should also give good news. What good news that if you do such and such a low, we'll forgive you your sense.
Sometimes what happens is that we are so firm in warning people that we completely despair them at the mercy of them.
We make them feel that they're so wrong. They're so sinful. That that's it they're doomed to hellfire. This is their end result. Look at the way of Newhall escena he is warning them Madeira muy bien. But when it comes to the details, what is he mentioning first forgiveness, isn't it so you can actually masama. So this is necessary, that we should give hope to people as well. give them hope. Don't just talk about punishment, but also give hope.
And also, if you think about it many times when people are called to the dean, what is it that prevents them from going further fear of losing out underneath.
by for example, a person thinks that if I take out 18 months out right now from my life, that means I will be 18 months behind in my career, in my school in my university. This is what stops a person from coming towards the dean. But what do we see over here when a person comes to the dean when a person worships a lot, and that is a means of
increasing his lifetime?
how Allah subhanaw taala shown is another side. So don't think oh, you're 18 months behind. Okay, you may be behind over here. But you don't know because of these 18 months along may give you five more years to live 20 more years to live. And in the time that you're spending now. Because of that, you become so much more efficient in your work later that what people do in three years, you managed to do it in a year and a half.
So many times I have seen that people who have taken time out from their school to study this course. And they've taken this course seriously. they've studied properly, then they have managed to complete their high school, their university or whatever they're doing in less time.
in less time. This happens when with the help of a loss of parameter. So never think that if you're taking time out for the dean, you're losing out on your dunya no way never. You're not losing out on your dunya Allah subhanaw taala is very just You are welcome in agilely Muslim I will give you a longer time to live longer time to work longer time to enjoy.
We listened to the recitation and then we'll continue
a person does not worship Allah subhanaw taala does not become serious about the deen thinking that he will lose out in his dunya what guarantees that he will live that long to enjoy the dunya aren't there are so many people who study for a long time but when it comes to working when it comes to their careers, they're not able to do anything. Doesn't it happen? There's so many people who go to school but they die over there. It happens death comes to them whenever it's meant to come. So never ever compromise on the deen never ever lose out on an opportunity with regards to the in for the sake of donia never do that.
Because dunia has something secondary Venus the main focus you focus on the dean alone
We'll give you the new year as well you run off adonia you lose our boat.
Then Allah subhanaw taala says, about what new Harrison said to Allah, the color of be in need to call me later on when
he said, Oh my Lord, indeed I invited my people to truth, night, and a new Hello, Sam, over here he is, as though filing a complaint with who? Mr. soprano.
Because when a person works for the cause of a law, no matter what it is, dealing directly with people interacting with people, not even dealing with people, whatever work you're doing, you're going to face difficulty. This is why the story of new halozyme is that of some Prophet sallallahu Sallam was told hospital sovereign Jamila.
And you need to share your problems with someone Why? Just to vent know, to gain guidance to gain strength.
And if you think about it, any work that you're doing, who can help you with regards to it?
The one who has given you that work?
The one who has assigned that work to you the one who has asked you to do that work, they're the best ones who can actually help you. For example, if your mom has asked you to cook something in the kitchen and you get stuck somewhere, what are you going to do? Ask your mom or your younger brother?
Who are you going to ask your mother? She told you that means she can help you. Similarly when it comes to the work of Dawa, Allah is the one who can actually help us. Therefore, when a person is doing Dawa, he must turn to Allah asking him for help.
Asking him for help. In the previous lecture, we learned about the importance of urba Why do we bother Why? ll mousseline alladhina humara, Salatin de imune, why, because this is how a person gains strength. This is how a person gains spiritual energy fuel, and this fuel enabled him to continue.
The very must must have a very strong relationship with his Lord meaning he must be turning to Allah at every step. Because without it, the work of Dean cannot be done. So what did he say? In neither our to call me indeed I have called my people Leyland, one hour by night. And by the What does it show how hard he would work? By night and by the shows that first of all, he worked continuously. It didn't matter. If the day came to an end. If he was calling people to Allah, He continued. It didn't matter if the night had begun if the night was coming to an end, and the day was beginning, no, it didn't matter. If he was doing Dawa, he was doing garwa it didn't make a difference whether it was
night or day. So first of all, it shows that you work continuously. And that shows how hard he worked. How much effort he put in.
How many times is it that for the sake of dunya people work during the day, and they also work during the night? You know, it's amazing, or sometimes even women, they work during the night. They have night jobs, night shifts Why? To make money. So for the sake of dunya, people will sacrifice the sleep of nighttime even.
And there is no pity over there.
There is no pity over there. If a person is working like this, he's being encouraged. He's being appreciated for his sacrifice.
He's being appreciated for his hard work. And when it comes to the dean, what do we say? It's not necessary.
But look at the sooner that we're being taught over here. No harness around, call his people by night and by day.
And remember, this was not only by night and by day for a few days, for a few months for just a year and a half. No, how long was it for 950 years, because he did that with his people for so long. But libido theme alpha sanity in the home cinema 950 years. So for that whole duration, it didn't matter whether it was night or day us calling people to Allah.
This is the kind of effort that is needed on our part as well.
You know, for example, there are some online students who when the class starts, it's very early for them. Five o'clock in the morning, six o'clock in the morning. And in fact, it's not just that they're studying, but they're perhaps in charges. They're perhaps the ones who start the class. You know, for the online students. A person might say that Why are you putting in so much effort, take it easy, but this is the way of the prophets that whenever a law calls you for his service, you respond, whether it's in the middle of the night or in the middle of the day, whether it's at odd hours, you respond, you go, Why? Because you're working for Allah
Allah will reward you for every step you take.
The students over we have learned that this is the highest paying job a person can ever have, that he's paid for even the step that he takes the hunger that he suffers the thirst that he suffers. For every little effort that a person puts in, in the way of Allah He is rewarded for it. So why should it matter if it's night or day? It should not matter. New Horizon I'm call this people continuously Leyland, one of our fellow Mazda Honda II, but my invitation did not increase them in left euro except in flight. What is fair army to fleet to run away. So in other words, the more I invited them, the more effort I put in, the farther they ran away. The more I invited them, the farther they
ran away from me. But did he stop because of that? No. Think about it. If this happened with us that every single day we call someone and they say to us, please don't call me again. You call somebody they don't pick up the phone. You call somebody over? They don't come over? What are you going to do?
Unless I see it on their hearts. What can I do? Isn't it this is what we think in our minds. This is what we think that too bad. Their hearts are sealed. I'm putting in my effort. Maybe guidance is not meant for them. We give up. We despair very quickly. But no Hello, Santa. Imagine night and day night. And they constantly without a break. People are saying don't tell us. We don't want to listen to you. Does he stop? He does not stop. for them. Yes. Either wonder iE elaphe era. He's calling them repeatedly. People are going away. But he doesn't stop. We get demoralized so quickly. So quickly. Just because someone said no once we think we don't try another time.
But we should try another time. Because you don't know. When you try the next time, it might work. Sometimes it happens that you talk to somebody and they very harshly say to you that look we're friends however, please don't talk about religion.
I respect you for your religion. You respect me for mine. And that's it. We don't talk about religion. I am content with my religion satisfied with it. Please don't tell me to read your book. Don't tell me to do this or that. I'm not interested. And we think okay, they've said no to me, so I should respect their decision. This is what we think. But if you think about it, you may respect their decision. But aren't you supposed to save them from the Hellfire?
Until homecoming cavalry and yet to whom are they will Aleem warn them before the painful punishment comes to them?
You don't know what if they die tomorrow? What if the day after a week?
What if they don't believe? Would you want them to be in Hellfire? No, go and for soco, alikum Nana, when you don't want to go there. You don't want them to go there. So when you don't want them to go there, no matter how many times you say no. What's your job? What's your job? Keep telling them.
Keep telling them don't stop for me as a 211 euro,
what it means to them and indeed, every time I invited them every single time I invited them to Eman to believe in Allah to worship Allah to have Taqwa of Allah. Every time I invited them little fear Allah home so that you forgive for them. I invited them to that which would bring about a loss forgiveness jar Lu, what was their reaction that they put a sabia whom their fingers fee their name into their ears. Imagine you're talking to somebody and they put their fingers in their ears. What would you do?
Or you would say that's it. I'm not speaking to them again. They have insulted me they have humiliated me they don't have any respect for me. But know how listen um doesn't stop
what a Nicolas Maduro to whom little fella home charlo A Sabra Humphrey as any of their put their fingers into their ears so that they wouldn't have to listen to me was still show the bone and they covered themselves with their garments with a sunroof, stackable plastic bottle and they persisted and were arrogant with great arrogance.
First of all, they put their fingers in their ears secondly, was still show the EVO is still show. Lane chin. Yeah, Russia yellow show. What does that mean to cover? Alicia we're covering. And remember Bab is defined that gives meaning of mobile as well. It gives meaning of seeking as well as mobile. So what style show they completely wrap themselves up with what's the ABA home, their clothes, their garments, meaning they do their clothes over themselves.
Every time they saw me coming, they put their clothes, they put their garments over themselves, so they wouldn't have to see me.
So that if they didn't see me, I didn't see them. What does that mean? I don't talk to them. This is a way of ignoring a person. One is that you turn away as soon as you catch plants of someone, you turn away, because you don't want to talk to them. If you don't meet each other in your eyes, you don't meet each other at all. So this is the way that they adopted as well, was still show the ABA home, they cover themselves up with their clothes, so they wouldn't see me. They completely ignored me. And someone said that this also means was still show theorbo they covered their clothes, as if they drew their curtains, they blocked off, you know, every way. They closed the doors and shut the
doors. They put down the shutters, so that if they saw me, you know, they don't let me in.
For example, if you go to somebody's house, they see you they close the door on your face. Does it happen with some people, they go to people's houses, properly dressed up, prepared, ready for a conversation, they go with their books and their pamphlets and their materials. And they're very politely knock at the door. They greet you with a smile. And what do people do? Shut the door in their face?
Do people do this?
There are Christian missionaries who do that similar to their people who are selling some products. And sometimes you tell them very politely please do not come here again. Do they show up again? Yesterday, you tell them please take my name off your list? Do they come again? Yesterday? Do
you yell at them?
But do they give up they don't give up?
Why? For the sake of their benefit. But if somebody closes their door on us once we get so hurt, we get so offended that we say we're not trying to get
was to show the ABA whom what are some rules and they persisted, a follow from Islamic Islamic is to become stubborn on something very firm on something. So they have persisted in their disbelief. They don't listen, they don't change. They don't accept any advice was stuck.
And they have become extremely arrogant, they were arrogant, with great pride istockphoto they were arrogant. istikhara is my sort of area to show how proud they were disdaining faith in you and following me.
Now we see over here, that the reaction of the people of New is mentioned how they reacted to the messenger. On one hand, is the effort of knew her lesson on how he called them. How did he call them
with warning, giving good news, giving hope. Similarly, he called them continuously night and day it didn't matter. And what was the reaction of the people that they kept running away from him. They kept avoiding him. He would speak to them. They would shut their ears. He would come to them. They would cover themselves up in their clothes, they will close the doors, draw the curtains. And the more he called them, the more firm they became in their disbelief. And they were extremely arrogant.
In particular, their pride, as mentioned is that Bostick follow they were so arrogant. How are these people arrogant that the followers of new Harrison, how are they? Most of them? They were poor. It was a week of the society who had believed in him. So the people have no he listened. And they would look down on the believers because they were weak. And we learned in solitude, I have 27 that woman or aka tabarka in the Latina home, de Luna. And we do not see you followed except by those who are the lowest of us. So if you want us listen to you expel these people from your gathering?
That's what they wanted. And we should you know, maka wanted something very similar. A new listener, the messenger, you told them, obviously I cannot do that. So what was the reaction? That fine, we're not going to listen to you either.
Sometimes it happens that people put such conditions on you, we will only listen to you if you do such and such. And these conditions are very unfair, they're biased, they're incorrect. Should you compromise everything? No, you should not. Where it is necessary for us to call people to Allah. Continuously try every way. It is also important for us to remain firm on our
It's important that we remain firm on the principles as well. Because sometimes people think well you know what, if I talk to that Brother, you never know he might become Muslim. If I talk to that person. You never know. I mean, fine. Do dour, but is it only your obligation to speak to him? You could have your brother speak to him. You could have another Muslim man speak to him. Why is it that you have to go there
Don't compromise on the principles. Remember that hard work is important. compromise is not allowed
into the Shula and number 13 we learn Kabbalah Ll mushrikeen, annata the room in a extremely heavy it is for the machine, that which you call them to meaning they cannot bear they cannot tolerate it. This is why, when you call them How do they react? How do they react with fingers in their ears, garments on themselves, because they didn't want to listen to them. They didn't like what he was telling them. And they were also an extremely arrogant people were stuck about a steak barrel. It is mentioned in some narrations that Neuheisel and he would call people consistently and very firmly, he wouldn't give up. And the people that were so arrogant that they would start beating him up, they
would become physically abusive towards him. Just imagine you're talking to somebody, and they become physically abusive towards you. And they will beat him up to the point that he will fall unconscious. And they will just pick him up, wrap him up in a blanket and leave him in his house hoping that he would die. But no Harrison The next day, when he would wake up when he would regain consciousness, what would he do? He would get up and start calling people to Allah again. Just imagine,
look at their arrogance. And look at his firmness. They would beat him up. And he would still not give up he
was stuck about a stick borrow some money in neither OMG Hara, then I invited them publicly. Do you have jihad is to say or do something such that other people find out about it?
How would that happen?
How would that happen? That you say something out loud? Or you say something in public? Or you do something in public in front of everybody. When you do it in front of everybody? What's going to happen? Everybody's gonna find out? If you would do it in a closed room, would people find out? No, they wouldn't. So suddenly, in need their own Jihad and I invited them publicly What does this mean? That I called out to them loudly with a very loud voice at the top of my voice. Because when he approached them, what did they do? put their fingers in their ears? When he approached them? They put their clothes on themselves, so they wouldn't see him? Did he give up them? No. He said, Fine.
You don't want to listen to me. I'll scream out. I will do that. to you at the top of my voice Thelma in need out OMG Hara, at the top of my voice, somewhere in Ireland to the home. Then I announced them was thrown to the home and I also confided to them Islamorada secretly, Ireland to from Ireland, what does airline mean, to make public? So I proclaim the message
was brought to lavon is raw. What does that mean?
to confide to have a secret with someone says, what a serial killer? Would you have to be? What does that mean? To share a secret with someone to speak in a very low voice? So somebody in the Ireland to the home I proclaim the message to them? And then I also invited them how secretly meaning on an individual basis. Where do you have means he spoke them out loud, openly inviting everybody? Like a few times a prophet sallallahu Sallam also did that when he went to double the mountain, and he called everybody. And he did that to everyone.
And secondly, will assadullah home Islam that also secretly did Dawa, to two individuals. And that was a way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well. What does it show that new Hassan tried various types of Dawa techniques. He didn't just use one methodology, but he used many different ways.
If one didn't work, he tried another way. Notice the word somewhere over here? What does somebody mean? Then? I tried this. Why? Because that didn't work.
What does it show to us? That it's very, very important that we change our methodology. We change our style, we change our approach, if it is not working.
Sometimes what do we do we simply blame the other person he doesn't want to listen.
He doesn't want to accept guidance.
It's very easy to say that. But it's quite possible that you're falling short as well. It's quite possible that your way is not effective. So what do you have to do before passing the first one, then what do you have to do? try something different. If one thing doesn't work, try another.
And remember that the work of the hour is not limited to one way only. A person must use every possible method to call
For example, sometimes one way that is effective is talking to the person, you feel that you're not confident at that what can you do?
What can you do? Have somebody else, talk to them? Maybe if you can't find that opportunity, then what can you do? Give them something to read, give them something to listen to call them to an event. For example, if they're working at your house, if they're doing something, then perhaps play the call and play some lecture. You could use different different ways of doing that, what to people? There isn't just one way, remember, there isn't just one way, there are many different ways. And a person should use all of the resources that Allah subhanaw taala has provided to him, you know, talk to people, send an email to them, show them a video, share a lecture with them, give them
something to read a book, a pamphlet, an article. Similarly, it's not necessary that you do Darwin in just one setting. No, you could speak to a person in a gathering, you could speak to them individually, you can communicate with them online, you can speak to them over the phone, you can send a text message to them, different ways different methodologies can be used.
You tell somebody, would you like to come to the class? They say, No, I'm busy in the mornings, you give them the option of an evening class, you give them the option of a weekend class. They say I cannot come you tell them about what is available online, what's available on the website. Because when you have made up your mind, I have to tell them, then you figure out a way. You figure out a way. If one thing doesn't work, you try another and this is how we have to be creative, innovative when it comes to Dawa.
When it comes to the dunya we want to get something done. We'll try every option.
Have you seen sometimes our children, especially teens, how they get what they want? Their parents say no, they will come up with a list of reasons. Their parents say it's not possible because it's actually this reason? Oh, don't worry, I'll do such and such. Their parents and sorry, I cannot drive you Oh, don't worry, I'll take the bus. She can pick me up. And she said she'll drop me. And don't worry about the money, isn't it so? So when you want to get something done, you'll get it done. And this is how we must be when it comes to Dawa as well
use different ways different methodologies, different styles, different approaches, different settings, small scale large scale, weekdays, weekends, on the phone online, in person, giving something calling them there could be different different ways. And this is what has been mentioned over here but know how to set up that how he used very different ways in calling people to almost
