Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen

00:00:12--> 00:00:18

wa Salatu was Salam wa ala Ashraful MBA he was a Selena while early he was off be a Jemaine

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

without indeed will praise you to Allah

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

a May the peace and blessings of Allah subhanaw To Allah be upon His final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:00:31--> 00:00:33

So we're still in the makin period.

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

And before we start talking about some of the

00:00:39--> 00:00:45

events, which really changed, to some extent the position of the Muslims in Mecca.

00:00:46--> 00:00:55

That's concerning the Islam of Ramadan al Khattab, Italy Allahu anhu, and also Hamza Ibn Abdul Muttalib Radi Allahu Anhu. But before we get to that, there's a few things

00:00:56--> 00:00:59

that's important for us to, to think about Charlotte Island,

00:01:00--> 00:01:03

tried to utilize and benefit from the theater directly.

00:01:04--> 00:01:14

That one will notice from the very beginning to the very end of the Macan period that the Muslims didn't physically fight back, didn't openly fight back against the Quraysh

00:01:15--> 00:01:28

even though they had full right to, in that, that they were being oppressed and persecuted and treated in the hostile, harshest of manner. Some of the younger companions, or the Aloha and whom,

00:01:29--> 00:01:39

who saw what was happening, went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and asked about the situation they were in, if they could do something about it.

00:01:41--> 00:02:05

On one occasion of the Rama, Nibbana alpha, the Allahu anhu, and some of the Muslims, they went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, ya know, Vu Allah, O Prophet of Allah, that we were honored when we were once polytheists. And ever since we have felt or entered into Amen, we find ourselves being humiliated.

00:02:07--> 00:02:17

Now, we're not to understand that they had any doubts about the man or about their decision. But they wanted to have the opportunity or have the chance to

00:02:18--> 00:02:24

defend themselves against the apologists, who essentially their persecutors

00:02:25--> 00:02:36

at this time, and the BU sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed the Muslims, he said that I was ordered to forgive, so do not fight them.

00:02:38--> 00:02:48

Now, there's a number of reasons and discussions concerning this, ie that the Muslims for 13 years did not fight back physically.

00:02:49--> 00:02:58

Even though they had full right to the man their wealth, Muslims were martyred. Why should one put up with this?

00:02:59--> 00:03:43

Now, number one, that the muck and phase was a phase in the life of a Nabil sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which without doubt at this time, was a period of training and preparation, training and preparation, training and preparation for things to come. That was going to happen in the years later. And when you look at it, the trials that the Muslims that they faced in Medina, the new trials are, for example, the hypocrites and engaging with different communities that looking back on that what they went through and the marking period, no doubt that it put them or put them in a position

00:03:44--> 00:03:47

that they were able to deal with those trials later.

00:03:49--> 00:04:07

So they were became a very patient people. They became a people who didn't lose their temper quickly. And they fell in line with the orders of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, even though that they had their own

00:04:08--> 00:04:17

opinions concerning certain matters, the fact that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that this is what we're going to do, and this is how we're going to behave, that they followed that.

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

So they were

00:04:21--> 00:04:32

training themselves being patient holding on to their anger and following the way of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam even though that they themselves were facing or subjected to great

00:04:33--> 00:04:38

or extreme and harsh treatment, yet they were still ordered not to take up any arms.

00:04:39--> 00:04:51

So a training phase for them. Also can be mentioned that in a society like that, it will seem that peaceful preaching if you want to call it or

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

okay like this, we can call it that no problem, peaceful preaching. That it was

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

seen as having a stronger impact as opposed to non peaceful actions.

00:05:06--> 00:05:20

That here it is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was bringing families together wanting to bring people together to unite people. If then you will then to stop fighting people will be very difficult to uphold

00:05:22--> 00:05:35

the kinship between families, because you might find in one particular family, father and son on different sides, but here it is Islam and Allah generally wanted to bring the people together. So fighting

00:05:36--> 00:05:39

would have been counterproductive, completely.

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

Another reason we can be mentioned

00:05:48--> 00:05:48

is that

00:05:49--> 00:05:54

there were people who until now hadn't embraced Islam from them.

00:05:55--> 00:06:26

Amara Malhotra Radi Allahu Anhu. And other companions who had to accept Islam much later on Abu Sufyan at the time was from the leaders of the Kurdish against the Muslims, he already embraced Islam after the fact of Makkah. If it was that the Muslims were then to start fighting against these individuals who were yet to embrace Islam, maybe these people would have been killed, and they wouldn't have become the great leaders that we know. And that we have, especially amadablam Hatha Raja Allahu Anhu.

00:06:30--> 00:06:40

Likewise, we mentioned previous I think, in a previous lessons that the Muslims were, again, few in number, and that they were constructed within the boundaries of Makkah, and that Islam hadn't

00:06:42--> 00:06:48

gone really beyond Mecca, there were a few tribes who were almost sitting on the fence really

00:06:49--> 00:07:21

looking and, and really thinking about what really was happening here. And that really, whoever is going to prevail, will follow them. Okay, so there were groups and there were tribes there were they were like this as well. And honestly, as many of the element that they said that there was no pressing need to start fighting at this time. For the goals at this particular stage of the hour, they were being fulfilled, that the word of Allah subhanaw taala was being propagated that people were becoming aware of Al Islam, even though that they were in a very difficult position.

00:07:23--> 00:07:24

Islam was still spreading.

00:07:26--> 00:07:46

So it was overall a time of training, a time for groundwork for principles that could be applied in the future establishing men that would then later on take the message of Islam beyond the Arabian Peninsula. So, when you look at these 13 years, and what the Muslims were they, what they went through,

00:07:47--> 00:07:52

you will find that there were many things or a number of things which gave them strength

00:07:53--> 00:07:58

and the single most important source of

00:07:59--> 00:08:04

strength that they had, was the revelation of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:05--> 00:08:46

Here it is that the accepted Islam entered into the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. Recognized Allah azza wa jal is the only one deserving of worship, and that our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was indeed the Messenger of Allah, and that he affirmed and confirmed all the previous messengers and prophets. And here it is that he was receiving revelation from Allah subhanaw taala. Not in one go Joomla tournois hit that note, but came down bit piece. Slowly, slowly, Allah subhanaw taala was revealing and addressing mankind, which was a time of great in itself, great excitement for them.

00:08:47--> 00:08:48

Imagine that,

00:08:49--> 00:09:25

and how, you know, we have the book of Allah azza wa jal with us. You go into the bookshelves and you can see copy after copy and a lot of allies have done has completed his revelation and sent it to us preserve that hamdulillah from cover to cover from Al Fatiha to oneness. But at the very beginning the Companions they were waiting for the revelation to come. And Allah subhanaw taala in very early revelation, you see how Allah azza wa jal is nurturing them and advising them and teaching them the type of people that they should be they should be serious servants and slaves of Allah subhanaw taala

00:09:26--> 00:09:31

that great sacrifice and struggle was something that was required of them.

00:09:32--> 00:09:59

When Allah subhanaw taala just our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yeah, a U haul Muzammil. Oh, you wrapped in garments come in Leila in kalila that Eliza Dennis telling him to stand to pray all night disapproval or when the postman who kalila or if you cannot stay the whole night except a little half of it or a little less than that. I was either early or do more than that. One till 430

00:10:00--> 00:10:21

Tila and recite the Quran aloud in a slow, pleasant style. This is how Allah subhanaw taala was instilling the belief in the believers. And this is something fundamental to all of us. The establishment of Eman remaining and being steadfast and taking things stage by stage.

00:10:23--> 00:10:53

That the type of people we are and even an abyssal Allahu Allah Sam said to the Sahaba in the component, strategy rune, another companion, he came to the Prophet So Sam said Ya rasool Allah, that we are being punished or being tortured. You know what, what can happen, you know, we are who we are. And then the Prophet Ellison gave him an example, that in the previous nations, a man would be taken and laid down, and that a sore would be then placed on the top of his head to be, you know, and then cut in half. And they would remain firm these people.

00:10:55--> 00:11:23

Not until this stage that it was really like like this, although there was, of course, great torture and punishment hadn't reached something like this, but the Prophet reminded them that don't be hasty. Don't be quick. You need to take your time you need to strengthen yourself. And this is what Allah subhanaw taala wants from us. If Allah azza wa jal indeed wanted something else, he would have commanded and the Beast will allow him to do something different, to raise arms to defend themselves in whatever manner was necessary.

00:11:24--> 00:11:27

But here it is that the Muslims now were being strengthened internally.

00:11:28--> 00:12:13

That the then later on when they became tested with all types of tests, not necessarily the physical test, because maybe the physical tests, that the MaHA Jiun that they faced in Maccha. Individually, for some of them, it was far greater them in Makkah than it was in Medina, maybe for some of them, or had you known those early Muslims the persecution that they faced for 13 years, when they went to Medina. By and large, it was much easier for them. However, the trials and tribulations that they faced, were not necessarily physical, physical oppression or physical tests. Rather, the tests they would go through with the tests, which would actually test the core of your Eman choosing between

00:12:13--> 00:12:27

dunya between choosing between Akira, but they were people who went through what they went through and became like mountains, fixed into the earth, that were not able to be shook by any of these pleasant trees that one may find in this worldly life.

00:12:29--> 00:13:11

So the tests that you go through any one of us that we go through, even if it is the case that we are being physically tested with an illness, or some kind of kind of ailment, yes, it will test you physically, but to hear it Eliza Dennis testing our iman and our faith to strengthen us. So that when times maybe in the future, that we go through more severe or lesser trials, that what we went through earlier will enable us and prepare us for those times in the future. So the book of Allah subhanaw taala, was a source of great strength and guidance for them. And Allah subhanaw taala revealed many are yet talking about establishing the prayer, praying at night, rising at night

00:13:11--> 00:13:22

establishing a vicar of Allah subhanaw taala, they got the example of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam we face what he already what he faced, the Sahaba the alignment and wanting to follow that and be like him.

00:13:24--> 00:13:31

All of this training them preparing them for the great mission that they would have in the future.

00:13:32--> 00:13:39

The Sahaba or the alarm, being trained to to love one another, to support one another, to become a single unit

00:13:40--> 00:13:42

composed of many people

00:13:43--> 00:13:58

as one OMA and it is these kinds of principles that we need to benefit from, because we don't, we're not short in number. We're not short in resources. So what is it that we're lacking? We're lacking love for one another. I mean, real love,

00:13:59--> 00:14:10

the love in which that the Prophet alayhi wa sallam said, let me know what you have bullied at him. Are you humble enough so that none of you will truly believe until he loves for his brother, he loves himself.

00:14:12--> 00:14:38

All of us we will differ and we'll have we have different levels concerning this. You know making a sacrifice that a person will prefer to give rather than receive that the PERT the people will prefer to remain unknown is not about being known. These are the kinds of sahab these are the kinds of people that they were and a true Islamic bond a true Islamic Brotherhood existed between them.

00:14:39--> 00:14:48

So an Nabil salAllahu alayhi wasallam. Would, would tell them to cooperate with one another, to support one another, especially in times of difficulty

00:14:49--> 00:14:53

and not to expect anything in return. Do it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say don't hate one another. Do not be

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

jealous of one another, and do not try to deceive one another, but rather be slaves of Allah brothers onto each other.

00:15:11--> 00:15:27

These are the kinds of advices that the Sahaba or the lion and that they would have and that they would live with one another. And it is these examples, these narrations that we try to emulate and try to live, not just to listen to it and just to take what I can from it, but rather,

00:15:28--> 00:15:38

what is the reality? And what is it really like to support and have this unity between between the Muslims?

00:15:40--> 00:16:21

Allah subhanaw taala. He tells us and he addresses and the be Salallahu Alaihe Salam was version of circa Lavina, you're the owner of boom below 30 will actually you redo Naja and keep yourself oh Muhammad Sallallahu ala send impatiently with those who call upon the Lord in the morning and in the afternoon seeking his seeking his face and that you should not let your eyes overlook them. desiring the pomp and the glitter of this world and do not obey those whose hearts we have made heedless of our remembrance, and the one who follows his own lusts, and whose affair or their deeds have been lost.

00:16:23--> 00:16:35

So Allah azza wa jal is addressing and abuse Allah Allahu Allah. So I'm telling you, these are the kinds of people with you you should be with. And likewise we take, we take practice from this as well, the kind of people we should follow the kind of people that we should be around.

00:16:36--> 00:16:43

Even at times, when an abuse Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam maybe addressed a particular companion in a way which wasn't befitting

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

our bus or whatever. And

00:16:48--> 00:17:02

the story, this is what Abba when the Prophet sallallahu some frowned and turned away because they came to him a blind man, Abdullah, even only Maktoum. He came to the Prophet alayhi salaam while he was preaching to some Karachi chiefs, chiefs,

00:17:03--> 00:17:05

Wilma Yoda recolor Allah who is

00:17:07--> 00:17:20

but what could tell you that maybe a chance he may come to you pure from sin, or that he might receive admonition and admonition might profit from him. So maybe Sam was advised by Allah subhanaw taala to to address him and maybe not to

00:17:23--> 00:17:28

or all laws which were pushed him in the in this manner. So he Allah subhanaw taala is revealed on Quran addressing

00:17:29--> 00:17:39

a Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam concerning specific incidents, so that he that he would become the individual, that we all know that he became Salallahu Alaihe Salam.

00:17:41--> 00:17:44

So this is something that all of us we really need to pay attention to.

00:17:45--> 00:17:58

And that is that establishing ourselves firmly into the deen and not rushing, and not being quick, into things that are beyond our capabilities or beyond our

00:18:01--> 00:18:07

our status at the moment, that's not to be taken as to be lazy, don't care. And these kinds of

00:18:09--> 00:18:48

you know, what may come into a person's mind. And I would say also, that if somebody says to you, let us start agile, do not be too quick, do not be hasty. Do not do things, take things slowly. It shouldn't come into Muslims mind that that person is telling you to be lazy, it shouldn't come into your mind to say that you know, don't care. Know that the person who's speaking to you and giving this advice to you, you should, you should, number one, take it as a sincere advice, a sincere advice, a dino Naseeha, that that person may be well talking from some from some knowledge and from experience and from wisdom, especially if that person is known for their knowledge, especially if

00:18:48--> 00:18:55

that person is known for their position or their what their wisdom, take it from them, and not not to be taken in a negative way.

00:18:58--> 00:19:24

So when you find youngsters who want to establish things very quickly, beyond their understanding beyond their perception and comprehension, and then when you want to advise them on or their or their, there's an attempt to advise them, that they close up. And they show little wisdom, they show little acceptance. This is unfortunately, only due to their own ignorance.

00:19:25--> 00:19:59

Because it is only ignorance that will drive a person or push a person to behave in such a way that if a person is sincere in advice coming to you, a person is sincere or known for their knowledge and to give you authentic knowledge. And then for that person to reject that and believe that they know better and that you don't know. Well maybe there's elements of arrogance and pride in that. That person doesn't even maybe know that they're being arrogant or being proud. But it is unfortunate due to their ignorance everything becomes confused like this.

00:20:00--> 00:20:24

And how many confused individuals that they that we have in our Ummah, yes, they have good intention, they want to do the right thing. But but due to their Jehle due to their ignorance, they make the situation that we're in even weaker, they weaken our ranks, they cause for 10 they cause non Muslims to have a negative view of what Islam is about.

00:20:26--> 00:20:31

They say this is what an abuse Allah Allahu Allah is. And this is what he came with, and this is what he would be like.

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

Talking from

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

absolute no knowledge at all.

00:20:38--> 00:21:04

And this is a shame this is unfortunately what we're facing. So you look at the Sahaba on the Allahu Anhu when years of training or preparation of strengthening themselves having an attachment with the book of Allah subhanaw taala knowing what Allah is unwanted from them, how to follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, knowing what the Sunnah was, okay, as opposed to a person in principle saying yeah, we follow Allah and His Messenger Elisa to set them

00:21:05--> 00:21:08

and then you mentioned Hadith to them. And they say well, you don't what you're talking about

00:21:10--> 00:21:13

or for example, you say to them, okay, you know

00:21:17--> 00:21:31

in understanding the Quran and the Sunnah, okay, which obviously, the language that was revealed it is and what language is in Arabic language. And you say that you know, in understanding these yet, and in understanding

00:21:33--> 00:21:46

that a hadith for example, it may be the case that we go to a statement of a companion of the Prophet salallahu, Assam to explain the earlier the meaning the intended meaning behind the verse, or you go to the many students of bursa Radi Allahu Anhu

00:21:48--> 00:22:21

or even Masuda Radi Allahu Anhu they had many from the tablet in explaining, giving tafsir of the ayat. And then when these tifosi they were passed on through the generations, and they were compiled into books, and then we have things like poverty and urban cathedra and uncool to be all these great difficile. Likewise, in the interpretation and understanding that hadith, in Bukhari and Muslim, you know, were compiled and preserved for us. And then we have Immerman know Yura mo Allah in explaining Sahih Muslim, we have even Hydra himolla and explaining so it

00:22:22--> 00:22:55

is important for us to have these understandings of the texts. Because people who reject all of these things, and we have people who say, you know, don't tell me what scholars see. I'm not interested in that. I just want to know what Allah says and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then you quest that person. Are you telling me you don't take from scholars and interpretation? No, don't talk to me about scholars. Just talk to me a Quran and Sunnah. So then you ask that person, right? Do you speak the Arabic language? No, I don't speak the Arabic language. Okay, how is it then you understanding the Quran and the Sunnah? Well, you know,

00:22:56--> 00:23:13

the translation, isn't it? Okay, well, who translated then? Did the Prophet Ellison put the Quran into English? Did the Prophet Aaron speak English? So we can understand? No, that's not the case. So you don't want to take from scholars, however, you do want to rely on translators?

00:23:15--> 00:23:52

So, who are the translators? Are they scholars? Are they people made mistakes as well? Quite possible. So even their own statements don't even make sense that we don't take from scholars we can't do this more than who translated the texts that the revelation of you to understand in the first place because it is unfortunate that you don't know the Arabic language. So how is it that you're referring to and going back to these sacred sources, you are relying on somebody translating them for you. So the statement I'm not taking the scholars is in itself. Absurd is invalid statement, because they're relying on people to translate for them. It is unfortunate we have young

00:23:52--> 00:24:06

Shabaab who may have good intentions, who may want good for the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. But they don't know their position within the deen of Allah subhanaw taala Allah is virgin hasn't given them the vasila the insight to know their position to know that they're,

00:24:07--> 00:24:11

you know, to know that they're just, I don't know,

00:24:12--> 00:24:48

maybe that's not the correct example because maybe they will take that as an insult. But in the grand scheme of things that you know, they're just all of us will just tiny small people, you know, even greater than themselves would say that the more that I learned, the more I realized I don't know anything. So these people end up you know, speak for themselves as though they're talking they know everything I had, if it doesn't know how to contextualize himself where he is, or where she is, made us pound to Allah give us to all Buck May Allah is relative his humbleness, in dealing with knowledge because the more you deal with knowledge, it makes you more humble. The loud the greater

00:24:49--> 00:24:53

will the more ignorance you have, the more pride and the more arrogance you will have.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

So the next thing we're going to mention in the shadow will complete the time we have together now inshallah with these

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

A few points is that after talking about the Sahaba of the lion home,

00:25:06--> 00:25:21

and how they were nurtured in such a manner, how a Nabil sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would then having in presence of the companions, how he would deal with the polytheists or deal with those people who would verbally reject Him.

00:25:22--> 00:25:56

Now, NWO sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is something that Allah azza wa jal revealed to us, first and foremost, about Allah subhanaw taala would give us examples and show us how to debate and how to talk with these people. So Allah azza wa jal tells us odourless. abelia. Rebecca Bill Hekmati, well mo got Al Hassan wotja, dill, whom will let you hear us and that call to the path of your Lord, with hikma with wisdom with the book of Allah azza wa jal, and with the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu is that's how you address people.

00:25:57--> 00:26:14

Okay? Bill Hekmati. Well, Mo hotel has Anna and with a fine, a fine argument a fine talk a fine admonition not to be cautious not to be harsh, not to be swearing and cursing. Don't be like this. This is not how and abuse Allah license ever gave that out to people cursing and swearing like this.

00:26:15--> 00:26:33

If they are to reject what Delhomme bility here, acid, and if it is the case that you're going to debate with them, debate with them in a fine way, there was never time that the Muslim should lose control of themselves or lose control of what they're talking about lose control of their tongues in a manner which will reflect Islam in a bad way.

00:26:34--> 00:26:39

Yes, of course, no one can take away and the creation can't do anything to the pristine

00:26:41--> 00:26:58

or the perfection of Islam. However, it is reality when you see non Muslims and then to see the behavior of Muslims, they will say, Well, you follow Islam, so they will make a judgement in Islam. So, it is very important for us to behave in a particular way.

00:26:59--> 00:27:04

Did not Allah subhanaw taala when some of the companions, when they would say bad things about

00:27:06--> 00:27:07

the gods

00:27:09--> 00:27:49

of the Quraysh and then Allah subhanaw taala revealed verses that do not curse or swear the gods of the people who call upon besides Allah subhanaw taala that They in return then would say something bad about Allah subhanaw taala you may feel there's a muscle has a benefit in doing that, but then the reaction makes a greater deficit, it brings a greater harm. And this is also very important topic for us to understand in understanding what brings about benefit and what would bring about harm and weighing up the situation and having the wisdom to to understand and gauge in the situation at hand. So at times Allah subhanaw taala would reveal is to bring about comparisons, okay? That

00:27:49--> 00:27:54

they liquidation, for example, would bring their arguments and then Allah subhanaw taala would

00:27:56--> 00:27:58

bring about arguments and comparisons.

00:28:00--> 00:28:02

Likewise, Allah subhanaw taala would

00:28:03--> 00:28:21

give examples to them for them to they will be forced to admit a forced admission from themselves. So Allah subhanaw taala would say to them, I'm Mahalia Koo, Minervini che in I'm humble Harlequin? Are they aware they created by nothing? Or were they themselves the creators?

00:28:23--> 00:29:06

Okay, these gods or whatever you're talking about? Two questions have been posed to them. Did they come into existence without a creator? Or day did they create themselves which one of them they're forced to admit? Well, it was neither of these, therefore, establishing that latest equilibrium, that it doesn't deserve any form of worship. Likewise, staying and ignoring other arguments, staying in your lane, if you like, when you're talking with people, or you're addressing people giving out to people, that when you talk to people, they may at times try to diversify onto other points. Okay. The the central message that that the Prophet Edison was given to the Quraysh was to worship Allah

00:29:06--> 00:29:09

azza wa jal, and to stay away from associating partners.

00:29:11--> 00:29:38

Now, in modern day times, if you'd like to be how do we do that? Well, we're calling people to the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. To stay away from worshiping anything that would take them away from worshipping Allah azza wa jal know they may not worship idols in the physical idol sense, but they may take their Hoher their own desires, they may take individuals are anything that may take them away from Allah subhanaw taala we need to engage with those things and how people will be taken away from Allah subhanaw taala in these forms.

00:29:40--> 00:29:48

So when you talk to people about the beauty of Islam that worshiping Allah is within us fulfilling our purpose of of our creation. Okay, what about hijab?

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

Okay, let's start from the beginning. We need to go back to to heat talk about the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala talk about the existence of a creator if a person is denying the existence of a creator or if they're frozen

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

of example, a believing person in the Creator, how do you understand that great, okay, but what about the beard?

00:30:06--> 00:30:15

Let's go back to what we were talking about let's, let's focus on the center of all of these issues. And that has a toe hate. Okay, well, what about forced marriages then?

00:30:16--> 00:30:58

No, I'm a Muslim. And let's start from our fundamentals of our beliefs. Okay, this is what I'm going to focus on, and not to engage. It doesn't mean to ignore, but it means to deal with the main topic. And those if you like, secondary issues, which can be dealt with in the correct manner. Okay, and in the appropriate way. But let's not make those what are secondary doesn't mean second doesn't mean unimportant. But the secondary issues, as opposed to what is, you know, the primary issue is to hate worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, submitting to Allah believing in the Quran, following Quran following an abuse SLM and implementing students, these are primary issues. And then in turn, we can

00:30:58--> 00:31:24

start talking about hijab and start talking about beard and talk about marriage, and Women and Islam and all these kinds of things. But if we start talking about these floor, the branches of the issue without understanding the core issue, then forever, we will go be going around in circles. So you find that the Quran always deals with the core issue. And our newbies, I said, would always be dealing with the core issues with the people to bring them back to the starting point.

00:31:25--> 00:31:41

And not being distracted with side issues, not to say that they are unimportant, but understanding the side issues or secondary issues without understanding the core and primary issues, then will always pose a problem for such individuals,

00:31:42--> 00:32:09

even at times that liquidation themselves, that they would be asking the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, you know, bring miracles, show us miracles, you know, cause a spring to gush from the earth. Or make for yourself, a garden of dates, and palms and grapes and cause the heaven to fall upon us. They even asked for their own destruction Subhanallah they asked to bring Allah and bring the angels face to us, let us see them.

00:32:10--> 00:32:22

Let the Prophet size and let him have a house made of, you know, made out of gold and pearls. And all of these things are by the side. Because the fact that they were asking for these things,

00:32:23--> 00:32:25

just like the majority of people,

00:32:26--> 00:32:45

if it is you find them in this manner. Start speaking about hijab, and they have a particular approach on it. Why this? And why has to be like this, and why is there a disparity between men and women? And why about this about inheritance and even if you give answers to them, they won't be satisfied.

00:32:46--> 00:33:32

It's not something that they're looking for true answers for, but they're just being antagonistic. They're just looking to maybe look to distract the argument and take it away from really what we should be discussing. The people like the Kurdish they said to the Prophet, sallAllahu alayhi salam, make the mountains move, okay, and make the earth COVID asunder. And the prophets Allah said to them, that prophets previous and prior to me, their people, asked them similar miracles and asked for such things. However, this is not what I had been sent to you with. I came to you from Allah subhanaw taala bringing only with me that what Allah azza wa jal sent with me. And I have indeed

00:33:32--> 00:34:12

conveyed to you that which I have been sent, if you would accept what I've been sent with, and you will have your share your good of this life and in the Hereafter, and if you reject it, I will be patient and wait for the Command of Allah subhanaw taala until judge Allah azza wa jal judges between me and knew, we should really pay attention to this kind of response, that people talking about secondary issues. By and large, a lot of them unfortunately, especially with the media, they're not looking to really have a true understanding what it means for a woman to wear hijab, or the status of a woman in Islam. But that is there to ridicule. But it is there to mock it is there

00:34:12--> 00:34:18

to show up, that they may choose individuals who will they know for sure will not represent Islam properly.

00:34:19--> 00:34:40

Because you know this, it's an institution and if there are certain individuals and certain people who have an agenda, they would make sure that the questions and the people supplying the answers will fulfill and support their agenda. You're not going to start bringing people who are educated, you're not going to invite people who have good answers to what are really weak, we questioning.

00:34:42--> 00:34:59

So it's very important for us to understand how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would give Dawa, how he'll be compassionate and how he sallallahu alayhi salam would be focusing on the core issues when calling the people to Allah subhanaw taala Yes, quoting people to the Quran, telling people away stay away from associate

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

partners with Allah subhanaw taala. But never was that done in an abusive way. Never Was that done in a harsh manner.

00:35:09--> 00:35:11

Allah subhanaw taala even says to NW Salallahu Alaihe Salam,

00:35:12--> 00:35:18

that if you are harsh, and you have recourse, that the people will run away from you.

00:35:19--> 00:35:24

So if you see Islam being delivered and taught in a way which makes the people

00:35:25--> 00:35:36

not necessarily flee, because maybe people don't want to hear the message and they want to go away from it. But not only that, but they flee from the message because the way it's being delivered

00:35:37--> 00:36:10

is not something which is even easy on the heart, that the way that you're trying to force it down our throats, was very antagonistic and very, you know, low lack of compassion and no wisdom in the know that that is not the way from the way of our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yes, the message may be correct, but delivering the message in the correct way, is of the utmost importance.
