Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam said Mandela, Allah Hierin fella who met through editor effect, really, that whoever directs somebody else to goodness, then they are going to get the same sort of reward as the person who actually does it.

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

This is a really, really important piece of guidance from our prophets. Allahu alayhi salam, because sometimes we don't have all the answers. Sometimes we're not qualified. How many times does somebody asked her advice, especially in a religious issue, or maybe a financial issue, and it's really beyond your level of expertise, you don't have to feel obligated to give them a concrete answer, if you don't know, if you're not qualified if it's above your paygrade. But if you direct somebody,

00:00:50 --> 00:01:33

to someone else who's qualified, or to a service that's able to help, then you get the same reward. You don't have to put the entire world on your back and be everything for everybody know, you can confidently and calmly do what you're able to do. And just try to direct people to other avenues, where they're actually going to get help. And if this were followed by all the Muslims, then we would be in a really, really good position because sometimes we like to speak on things that we're not really qualified. There's somebody, someone in my position, maybe an Imam, or someone who wants to speak about medicine, and we don't I don't understand medicine. I don't understand engineering. I

00:01:33 --> 00:01:59

don't understand these things. I didn't study them. And there's another person who they want to speak about something religious, but they're really just working on what they can google search in the English language. Right? Each one of us is tempted to step outside of our area of expertise, and we don't have to, don't think that you're getting any less reward by saying I don't know. No, tell them you don't know and direct them to an appropriate place.
