People have a very crude sense of what data is. And they have a very, very sort of simplistic understanding of what Dow is. And the result of this crude and simplistic understanding is that there is a lot of friendly fire, you know, it's like, well, I don't like the way that this person does down day water or down or they're too simple or whatever, or I don't like the way that this person goes down. They go too hard, or they're too extreme, or they're too strict or whatever, bro. We're all same team, same team, same dollar team, you don't realize that people need different things at different stages, okay, to somebody who's never heard of a snap, or who has a very poor

00:00:30 --> 00:01:04

sort of image of a slump, okay, you might need somebody who's quote unquote, watered down, right in order to get your foot in the door. And that's not saying that we're just fine. Anybody who changes the religion that's different, okay, changing the religion is different from presenting it in a simple way or delaying complicated things are harder things for later. It's like everybody forgot that the Sunnah of Allah with the Muslims was to determine right the Sunnah of Allah Spano. Tata was to introduce things slowly to people, okay, I shall do Allahu Allah herself said that if the first things that Allah subhanaw taala revealed were the prohibition of alcohol and the prohibition of

00:01:04 --> 00:01:31

fornication that we would not have believed right? And we want to act like we're better than the companions that you have to go down. We'll give them the straight down, we'll give him the raw down and give them everything like right or whatever, right? What is this? What are you talking about? This is not the Sunnah of Allah. This is not the Sunnah of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it's not changing the religion, and it's not watering it down. It's simplifying the presentation of it. So then somebody can be in a position where, hey, you know what, I'm going to focus on entry, point Dawa. Okay, I'm going to go out there, I'm going to be the guy on

00:01:31 --> 00:02:00

the street, I'm going to talk to people who have never heard of Islam before or think that Islam is some crazy cult. And I'm just going to be the entry point person who introduces the person to Islam in a good way that makes them curious. And then I'm going to pass the baton to my teammates, the guys who are on the next line and the ladies who are on the next line of Dawa, who are going to now give something more substantial and give something a little bit more challenging and give something a little bit more robust. And then there's going to be a line behind that of people giving something a little bit more challenging and a little bit more robust and full and complicated. We're all on

00:02:00 --> 00:02:31

the same team, right? And people honestly, they do a disservice to doubt and they do a disservice to the Muslims, when they flatten it off and act like Well, there's only one way or there's only one sort of style of doubt and it's got to be just hard, it's got to be raw, it's got to be everything, take it or leave it I'm not watering it down our feet, Allah subhanaw taala by your definition of watering it down Allah subhanaw taala watered it down for the companions and the companions are better than you and the companions were better than you. So don't oppose the son of Allah and don't oppose the Sunnah of the Prophet sighs set up and actually get out of the way and let people do

00:02:31 --> 00:02:34

their doubt and realize that we're all on the same team.
