By just advertising and 100 lab we're going to be launching tomorrow in chat

00:00:45--> 00:01:34

la November the fifth, the registration will open for a young Muslim and a young Muslim as a guide to puberty which are two important programs, complementary programs that are complementing to each other. One of them is the Art of Manliness, which is a young men's program. And the other one is heart to heart, a young woman's program, which is much Alan, myself and Dr. Amina ma are contributing to Dr. Amina ma is a dear colleague, Mashallah. She's recorded a wonderful, wonderful series for our young ladies who are maturing and heading towards adulthood. And I pray that Allah subhanaw taala puts it in her scale and all of our scales along I mean, it is going to be a really

00:01:35--> 00:02:24

amazing kind of journey with that in shot law. It speaks about really important topics that not just relate to the physical aspects of you know, cleanliness and purity, but to empowerment to understanding our place to limiting bullying, to how to stand up for ourselves, the dignity of a job, all of these are different things that are being addressed in child law. So look out for that dropping tomorrow be ninja hater, Allah, as an independent kind of program, I believe it will be of great, great benefit to a vast majority of our young students and young community Alhamdulillah Alright, let's jump into some of the questions that are awaiting us. And I pray that Allah Subhana

00:02:24--> 00:02:32

Allah, except from all of us a law home I mean, all right, so I'm just looking through our

00:02:34--> 00:02:50

telegram posts that have come in. Alright, let's get through a couple of questions. There's a number of questions that have come in related to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and talking to our friends about the prophets I send him so I'm just paraphrasing some of the questions here.

00:02:51--> 00:02:54

All right. So there's some students here from the UK saying

00:02:57--> 00:03:05

about I want to be a Salah Lahore and he was solemn, how to speak about our profits, I sell them in a positive way to people who don't

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

know that he is a positive

00:03:10--> 00:03:36

profit for us Salalah hunting and selling. Alright, so there's three important things I think, that are always important to share with people when it comes to acquainting them with also lots of noise in it. First is let them know about how he he is known in history, not just through the eyes of Muslims, but say, Listen, you don't have to take a Muslims.

00:03:37--> 00:04:23

You know, Muslims perspective, why don't you go and see what some of the great leaders of history in the past have said, and you know, there are incredible quotes of our nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his attitude is, you know, what he brought the, the changes that he has brought about, you know, in one of the most powerful testaments is the 100 most influential people that the world has known ranked number one is Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because in an economic, social, political, cultural, religious, in all of those avenues, he is the top he's the one who has made the biggest change that has affected human beings in our days and times and into the future. That's

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

something that's not going to change. So in in understanding who the Prophet is from their own perspective, that's important. Number two, the second aspect that I would share about the prophets lie Selim is to speak about his character to speak about his words, and there's a series inshallah that that will come out soon that's called did the Prophet really say that because it's surprising to some people that the prophets I send them spoke, you know, particular words that are full of wisdom full of peace because they don't know it also, lots of I sell them so when you say no

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

Actually, that's something our newbies I send them said, It's surprising to some. And the third is to answer some of their

00:05:10--> 00:05:50

misconceptions about our interviews I send them. And that's something that should that can be done. When you have developed your own understanding of hudl solos, I said that is when you have gotten to a place you never wanted to be with people and go back and forth. No, no, no, he's this No, no, he's that. You just want to be a provider of information. And that's the basis of our faith is that we are people who provide information. Our aim isn't to convert anyone. My aim is to simply say, this is what I believe this is why I believe it. This is where I've received it from femen chat affiliate woman woman chat affiliate for the one who wants to believe they believe the one who doesn't doesn't

00:05:50--> 00:06:35

at the end of the day, all of us are accountable for what our knowledge is and what we know of God and what we want to practice from that purpose. All right, so May Allah subhana wa tada make it easy. Number two, okay, so there's another question related to how do you deal with someone who is not? Who is not being respectful to our nebulous iclm and to our Islam? Alright, so haters gonna hate, there's always going to be people who got something bad to say there's always going to be people who irrespective of what you say to them, it's not going to make a change in their perspective in their life. They're just going to be at negative, hostile, unwilling to to listen to

00:06:35--> 00:07:17

reason, unwilling to read for themselves just gonna regurgitate what other people have said. Sometimes you just have to cut certain people out of your life. Is it really that important for you to prove your point to a particular person? That answer is no. Be confident with univee Be confident with your faith Be confident what you believe in. And for outline home had a hold of a hadith and Lady Allah would say to the prophets, I send them that when people have been speaking with ridicule, with hostility with vulgarity, turn away from them until they say a different word. So we, you know, we just say, listen, let them ginagawa lady into you is your way of life me as mine, I'm happy and

00:07:17--> 00:08:04

contented and confident in what I believe. And you don't have to be friends with somebody who doesn't treat you as a friend, you you can you can be an acquaintance, you can be somebody who knows someone, but doesn't mean that you've necessarily made them a friend, a companion, someone who is important to you in your life in that sense. So yeah, I'm a firm believer of if a person does not add value to your life, if a person does not assist you, in your maturity in your mental state and your spiritual states in your, you know, prosperity, then there is no real reason for you to hold on so much to a relationship that's clear and obvious that it's not meant to be maintained in that

00:08:04--> 00:08:25

sense, by the other side. So anyone who deals with you in that way, push, push back from the table, and you will find other company. And if people change for you, if they change a lot says until they change their narrative until they change their perspective, then yeah, we're Welcome to be in happiness with everybody around us.

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

All right.

00:08:32--> 00:08:37

There's a question here on on the Facebook stream, Mashallah.

00:08:39--> 00:08:47

When coworkers ask questions about Jesus, and we call him the prophet and not God. So that's a that's a good question. Sister robot.

00:08:48--> 00:09:03

For us as Muslims, we understand the place of a Saudi is set up. And one of the things that I would say to you is, whenever you're speaking about Jesus, and I have an article that I've written, why Muslims love Jesus,

00:09:05--> 00:09:14

and it might be something that will be helpful for you, I'll find it now for you and put it in the comment section.

00:09:16--> 00:09:59

May Allah subhanaw taala make it easy, but we love Jesus as Muslims, we love it. He sadly is that for a number of reasons. And when people actually begin to see Jesus through our eyes, it's actually something that's really powerful. So it makes a huge difference for people to know that we actually honor Jesus as a messenger of God as someone who is blessed as someone whose mother was the best of best of people of their time. As someone who was given miracles to be performed by a law, not by himself, as someone who was protected and raised up by a lot and never died.

00:10:00--> 00:10:51

As someone who was never claimed to be the Son of God, but rather the son as in obedience to God and the slave of Allah, not as in son in a biological sense, or a part of God, in that sense, we let him in then. So just being able to allow people to understand our perspective is good enough. It's just to say, Listen, if you really want to know what we believe about Jesus, here's, here's something you can read. It's written by this, you know, person, that might be something worthwhile. So that's been read by 1000s of people, and it's been shared by many, many people might be something that would be of great value to you it here it says on Facebook alone, more than 8500 chairs for that particular

00:10:51--> 00:11:10

article. So let people know about it. People can speak to you about what they believe. But don't feel it. shy to be able to say, Well, listen, we don't believe that. This is what we believe as Muslims, right? That Truth and Honesty is really important. People want to know

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

what we believe in to be on record that what we say to them, is the same as what we say away from them as Muslims. A lot make it easy. Final question here in July. I always like to keep these sessions short, is with regards to, here we go.

00:11:32--> 00:12:17

All right. Should we show respect to those who disrespect our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we shouldn't just show respect to those whose disrespect the prophet SAW Selim. We should show respect even to those who have not been respectful to Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala commands Moosa Allah is Salam in the urn, that when you come to Pharaoh for CODEL for all their level of Poland, lay you now when you come to speak to Pharaoh, he's a person who's claimed that he is God, that people worship him instead of Allah. Speak to him in a soft manner. So how to law meaning, be respectful in your speech. Don't be vulgar. Don't walk in with abusive words with an abusive tone.

00:12:17--> 00:12:58

Be a person who represents faith because you're confident in the truth, I don't need to put on a show for it. So for somebody who has been disrespectful to the prophets, I send them we will let them understand that we do not tolerate this we're not going to continue in a conversation in this way. But we don't lose our perspective. We don't act in a sinful manner towards others because that is greater disrespect for our Ws I tell him that we act away from his character, Allah subhanaw taala compels us to always be in control of our emotions control of our anger, control of our belief, our to be as I sell him, Allah has vowed what cafe unacademy stands in Allah subhanaw taala

00:12:58--> 00:13:41

has given you protection from those who have really killed you or have spoken nice words about you. jasola You and I are not the protectors of the prophets of Allah who it was sent him a lot is his protector. Allah What do you let the manual Allah is my protector in your protector. We just stand up for the truth Kunal ko wamena Lila hitch ohada because the truth is Mohammed Salim is the best of humanity. And that's what and we're confident with that we don't need to prove it to anyone. We can share information about him, but we don't need to prove it. So when somebody's being disrespectful, turn turn away and remain with your respectful state. It is not an act of our tradition and sooner

00:13:41--> 00:14:23

to act in a vulgar manner to those who have acted vulgarly towards us. Allah subhanaw taala says we're about to rock many Levine am Shawn Allen out of the house gonna wear either hot tub of matcha Hey dude, corlew Salama that the slaves of the merciful law when they are spoken to with ignored words by the foolish people. They turn away from them and say set ama Our aim is to find peace between us and others and Allah subhanho wa Taala I pray that Allah subhanaw taala protects you and I in grinter says favor a llama meanwhile suddenly Lambo Selim was it barbaric unless he didn't know Habib intervene and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam was Salam aleikum
