00:00:37--> 00:00:38

Within

00:00:41--> 00:00:42

the hula Sheree Kayla

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

was supposed

00:00:50--> 00:00:54

to rely on me with Diane yamawaki is the surgeon monniera

00:00:57--> 00:01:01

to talk about your attendance right in early in the morning

00:01:03--> 00:01:09

recently, right? It's still Saturday for me. So kind of like Saturday 7:30pm.

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

Just as a

00:01:14--> 00:01:19

brief introduction for myself, my name is Rashad Evans. Hopefully some of you know why when

00:01:22--> 00:01:57

I was, if I gave you my entire story, that would take the two hours that I haven't shot so we don't have time for that. But I will have some DVDs for those who have not seen my story, or who want to watch it and be able to give the DVD to someone else I have logged in to the channel one. I was born and raised Christian was a youth minister was an aspiring Bible scholar, and aspiring minister, missionary, all that good stuff. It was my studies of the Bible that actually led me away from Christianity in 1996, and eventually, through a very long arduous tale to Islam in 1998, or 111.

00:01:59--> 00:02:36

And since then, I've ever since I accepted Islam, I knew that I wanted to spread this message to this man, I just never knew that there was a field of specialty for that in Islam. And when I found out that there was a field of vision of a specialty field, for calling to Islam, that I made that my profession, and then I've done that pretty much ever since I also teach martial arts and part time, I was doing martial arts schools in the states teaching mixed martial arts and Krav Maga, etc. But I sold on most so that I can keep up with this endeavor here because there's like four full time jobs. But I'm the lead. This is what I do as a profession now. But

00:02:37--> 00:02:43

the particular reason that we're here this morning, is a dowel workshop.

00:02:44--> 00:02:59

And as a disclaimer, even if we were to be here from morning till night, we would not even recover an introduction to that, it's just not possible. To do that in one city, it's not really even possible to do it in two or three cities.

00:03:01--> 00:03:05

To give true justice to 50,000 women has it

00:03:06--> 00:03:12

takes months if not us to get a proficiency at it. But if you want to get a crash course,

00:03:13--> 00:03:31

I do teach a crash course in fifth hour $100. But that is 16 hours long. And I'm not gonna keep 16 hours of sunlight, I don't think any of us including myself would make it 16 hours today. So the two hours I have is going to cover the introduction

00:03:32--> 00:03:35

of the introduction to the crash course.

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

So

00:03:38--> 00:03:41

and I know all of you want to learn how to

00:03:43--> 00:04:00

debate down a Christian, and you know, all of these good things I know all of you want that. And that is I guess you could say my specialty being that I haven't been seen. Even though I left Christianity, I have still been a student of Christianity, and textual studies since then, and even now in college.

00:04:02--> 00:04:07

But I can't start there. Because the loss of kind of what the Allah has commanded me not to start there.

00:04:09--> 00:04:10

And I'll get to the reason why.

00:04:12--> 00:04:50

And the reason why I'm going to only start with the foundations of the basics of a solid data, or even though is to distill it down with a very fundamental principles, even to fit them down, is because this is the biggest point where most of the people who want to get involved in downtown, go straight. This is the biggest mistake they make is they begin at the end of the system. Rather than beginning with the foundation, they begin at the end of wanting to learn how to argue and things of this nature. And they don't understand the principles behind that one. And they make a lot of mistakes, and they actually do more harm than good.

00:04:51--> 00:04:55

And this is one of the reasons why one of the beautiful alumni of our time chef

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

who's a mini version of Allah he wrote a book set point is going to be

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

The sound of awakening the whole reason the central writing that book, which it is a fifth hour book, he said, I wrote this book because of this fact that I see so many youth and students have the zeal for download, but they don't learn the principles, and therefore they destroy more than they built. So he wrote this book called The Islamic awakening for any

00:05:19--> 00:05:30

potential dairy, you must read this book, this is one of my high recommendations of books. And I will give you some books at the end that I recommend for the doctor to read. It's not comprehensive whatsoever.

00:05:31--> 00:05:40

But this one is one of the highest ranking ones is called the sign of awakening, but share with me, you can get it from alpha diet publications, which I think is UK.

00:05:43--> 00:05:53

So we're going to start with the very fundamental basic principles of data. Because if you don't lay it's, I mean, it's it's just logic, that if you do not lay a good foundation,

00:05:54--> 00:06:24

everything after that will be incomplete, and it will be weak. If you build a building and don't lay a solid foundation, you don't, the foundation is not level, you don't have the proper things in place in the foundation, you don't put that foundation on a proper platform, than anything else you put on top of that is going to be defective. And we all know that Islam is a house built on five pillars and all these good things. But without that foundation, those pillars will not stand correct. Those pillars will not be there. And that's what

00:06:25--> 00:06:45

the School of Islam is all about the foundational principles, and we too much in Islam, even if we begin to learn Islam, we start with the the application of the photo when we started trying to argue with these different things. And and this is just the mentality of the human beings. And I'll get to some of these things with you. But as me and some brothers were talking about yesterday,

00:06:47--> 00:07:09

at dinner, that if you don't understand these principles, you have made a mistake, like one brother asked me, and I'm just giving you a reason why I'm going the way I'm gonna go. brother asked me, you know, what do you do if somebody came and asked you like, you know why in Islam? Do they kill apostates? You know, they're supposed to be freedom of religion. Your book says that you cannot impose Islam on anyone. But then why does it say that if someone leaves Islam, you can kill them?

00:07:10--> 00:07:18

How would you answer that question? And I said, I wouldn't. Except for to tell the person that you are

00:07:19--> 00:07:58

beginning at a place that will bring you no benefit. And that in your question is already leading me to deduce that you don't really want to know about slim, what you want to know is why you shouldn't be and, and I really can't tell you why you should not be a Muslim. But how about we begin with something a little smaller, you're beginning with brain surgery. And let's begin with basic medicine. you're wanting to become a doctor, but you wanting to start in the brain surgery class, we just can't do that we need to start in basic medicine class first. And then maybe if you learn a little bit about a law and the law maker, you understand why there are certain laws in place. So if

00:07:58--> 00:08:25

we have this, this is a principle of network, without without understanding this principle, people will start trying to argue why we should kill an apostate. And then that person has gone. You've just given them solidification of reasoning of why they should leave Islam and you've given them evidence to argue with the next Muslim within. So this is why I do this, this this beginning part, which is the basic fundamental principles. And this crash course, of course, is called calling to the way which is based on the

00:08:26--> 00:08:29

data, although interestingly, there are bigger columns the way of your load.

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

Now these are the

00:08:33--> 00:08:38

I'm going to hopefully cover the first two today, I hope inshallah we'll be able to cover the first two.

00:08:39--> 00:08:42

There's actually six points. These are the first three.

00:08:43--> 00:08:46

I don't know where the last half of that number three wins. But

00:08:47--> 00:09:14

yeah, that that kind of just disappeared. But number one, we're going to talk about what is down, specifically, what is downward? We must know. A lot of people run around and say that we're giving downward and they don't really even understand what it is now, not to call anybody out but just to see how we can get the variances I want to get three or four people to tell me what is downward? What do you think data is?

00:09:16--> 00:09:19

Call to the truth. Anybody else?

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

An invitation to what specific

00:09:30--> 00:09:35

to the truth invitation to terpene have that anybody else? sisters, you can raise your hand.

00:09:37--> 00:09:37

Anybody else?

00:09:40--> 00:09:50

spreading the deen and Islam. Yeah, I'll tell you if, if I got an answer from everybody. There'll be a lot of different answers correct. And and and this is why I want to do this class because after this when we leave in Sharla

00:09:52--> 00:09:58

by the time by the time the next few minutes, you'll understand that there is one there is one

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

definition

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

Now and you'll understand what it is and why it is that definition. Number two, we're going to show a talk about To whom? And what do we call tomen? What do we call it?

00:10:09--> 00:10:38

Maybe if I get a chance to come back, inshallah, I know, I will be back in September, the end of September. But I think I'll be doing some traveling all throughout visiting the Netherlands, some other other states in Canada. But the third part is that would be the attributes of the color and the methodology of the call the attributes of the data, and then has a deadline. And then the fourth part that I have in this workshop is the attributes of the modality meaning the attributes are the ones who are called dealing with different types of personalities.

00:10:40--> 00:10:54

Then the fifth one is different tips and techniques to deal with different types of people, which I focus heavily on Christianity, just because that's my my area of expertise, but then I give you some briefs on other religions. And then the last one is

00:10:56--> 00:11:11

practical applications, that one practical way, we're going to do that. And at the end of this doubt, come actually start doing role playing and stuff like that. That's why it's so long, because at the end, I start doing role playing and scenes and setups and things of that nature. So you can actually learn how to do these things.

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

Now,

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

to begin, number one,

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

what is the outline?

00:11:20--> 00:11:37

Now as all of you should know, most most of you probably know, there are words that existed in the Arabic language, before the coming of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which had to meet. And then when Islam came with our salsa, lesson, lemon was reimplemented.

00:11:38--> 00:12:17

There were words that were given a different meaning like a different tent, or a different connotation to the word. Now, what is one of these words as well, because linguistically, in the sense of the out of an editor of a word, download means an invitation. Simple, it's just an invitation to something. Like when when the brothers invited me here, they gave me that they gave me the uncle Australia, it's just an invitation. They gave me an invitation to come to Australia, you can even call to negativity, you can call someone to sit in Tomasi. And you can give that hour to these types of things. You want to give lots of things we probably does more down in this. But

00:12:18--> 00:13:07

islamically speaking, when we speak of Darwin, the sense of purpose while we're here to download is an invitation or a call to Tao, heed, and on law, and Islam in all of its principles. If you understand this definition, then you always can check yourself whether your Tao is correct or not. This this is one basic definition you can think about. And you can ask yourself, Is this downward effort that I'm doing? Is it an invitation? Is it a call to tahina law for people to believe in the laws of oneness? And is it a call to Islam with all of its principles, all of its principles? If not, then it is a flawed or partial doubt. I'm going to tell you why is a Florida partial that way,

00:13:07--> 00:13:51

and we will discuss why in just a moment. I don't know why the bottom of my slides keep disappearing. But inshallah maybe we'll stop. Now, there are three points I want to discuss in this issue. And these are so important. And I'm hoping that I'm going to give you some firmness, some Yaki and what that was really about so that when the other brothers come and speak to you, they can lay on some more rigs of this foundation. But I want this foundation when I need to be so solid that there is no question. No doubt in your mind what it is, and why we should be doing it. This is what I this is my purpose. If I if I can do this in two hours, then I think I've done more than enough or

00:13:51--> 00:14:07

have been done, I will be highly satisfied. Even if I didn't give you all the practical applications. I can learn based on good groundwork, you can show a lot. And for those of you who want to advance in this course, this is actually a course that I teach online every Monday at

00:14:08--> 00:14:11

11am. Eastern Standard Time. I think that's like

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

I don't know what the GMT time that is

00:14:16--> 00:14:21

1180 I think that's GMT minus five. So I don't know what the

00:14:23--> 00:14:30

16 hours behind you 14 or 16, something like that. But I teach it every day every Monday figured out.

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

All right. Now there

00:14:36--> 00:14:51

is an obligation. How many of you agree with me that this is an obligation? You have to do it? Hands up? hands? It must be hands. You have to do it. Alright, hands down. How many of you think it's recommended? It's something that is good to do, but you don't have to do it.

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

Okay, how many of you think that it's neither here nor there. It's just mobile. It's neither here nor there. So something's good if you do it. If you don't

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

Whatever.

00:15:01--> 00:15:12

All right, hopefully I'm going to clear up for you Sharla so the not only do you know which one of the places is stands as far as our obligations go, but you have the evidence behind it.

00:15:14--> 00:15:19

Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran, although Elizabeth Arabic have been hit with a woman's gonna

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

pin it here.

00:15:22--> 00:15:35

Abbas's in sort of a novel called into the way of you load with wisdom, and with good speech or fair preaching, and then discourse or argue with them in a way that is passing that is beautiful, or best or good and nation.

00:15:36--> 00:15:50

The we all have heard this, this verse, actually, this verse actually lays down an entire minute, 100 hour course all by itself, which we will get to in just a moment, sha Allah Allah. But what I want you to focus on is the first word, the first word of verse is

00:15:52--> 00:16:04

sort of not sort of, I had sort of 16 I have 125. Again, all my all my bottoms are chopped off. I think I'm using the long program. Actually, I think I'm using keynote rather than Microsoft PowerPoint.

00:16:06--> 00:16:08

So that's why it's doing all this.

00:16:09--> 00:16:13

But it's sort of 16 I had 125 in trauma.

00:16:15--> 00:16:19

Now, we'll have to probably exit on a couple of times, just to make sure I have the verses right. So we'll pull this over.

00:16:20--> 00:16:27

The four, I want you to focus on the first word, although, if you look at the composition for those of you

00:16:29--> 00:16:35

proficient every language, from the composition of the word, oh, what is this word? 10 minutes.

00:16:36--> 00:16:38

Anybody here? What does this word telling us?

00:16:39--> 00:17:23

It's a command. This word is posed in the command terminal. It is prose in the command tone, Allah is giving a command. This is a obligation that allows and they've done a lot of saying, giving us a command to invite or columns, or even load that wisdom and fare with pre preaching, and then discourse or argue with them in a way that is best. If you look at the way that verses proposed, there's not an option of not leaving an option, there is no option if or if you have a chance, or if you have time, that this is not in this first what is in this versus an explicit command. And most of the majority of the unima have said that this command, the way Allah has proposed it in the Quran

00:17:23--> 00:17:49

puts it at the very same status is all of the other commands, just like Allah is commanded us to make so long. There are obligations under there, it's timings and all these things. But it's a command, just like the last command that has to please again, just like allies commanded us to fast during Ramadan, just like it's called call just to make Hajj. And all of these things alone has commanded us to call on to him. This is a command explicitly without a doubt.

00:17:51--> 00:18:01

And I'm going to give you more verses, and if I will, if if we wanted to be comprehensive and exhaustive, there would probably be hundreds of verses that I could lay down, but we just don't have the time for it.

00:18:02--> 00:18:05

I want to give you a few the serious ones. Now this

00:18:06--> 00:18:11

is going to show some of the seriousness behind our this verse and sotto

00:18:12--> 00:18:24

Tanga sort of Oberon, at 122 is speaking about the rules of engagement, or the rules of jihad physically learn. And this is talking about when the Muslim

00:18:25--> 00:19:08

state is at threat. And the honorable citizen led to send someone to check that Allah saw them that, yes, send them but don't send all of them. Allah says nor should they all go forward together. out of every contingent, you should leave behind the group of them, for what reason, so that they can learn D. And then when the people return, they get then on them so that they can make them have tuffle and God themselves. So the purpose of leaving these people behind was to learn Islam, so that when the people returned, they could then teach them and pass it on to them. This is how important this job of learning Islam and passing it on was, is that even Allah subhanaw taala says when the

00:19:08--> 00:19:37

Muslim oma is a threat, yes, you'd have to check the threat. But it's just as important to make sure you have people learning Deen to then pass it on. And this is also showing that this is a field of speciality in Islam that there should be people set aside for this purpose. So Allah is telling models that I sent him pick some people, that you set them aside for this purpose that they learn deep, and then they teach it to other people. And this is just part of the son of a loss of Carnival with the island.

00:19:40--> 00:19:49

Also, you all know this verse very famous in Salt Lake Moran I know for where Allah says, and I'm going to forego a lot of the Arabic just because it just takes time to repeat things

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

and let their arise from you. Let there be from amongst you a group who is calling to all that is good and forbidding all

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

There is evil in Allah says about them.

00:20:04--> 00:20:10

It is those who will be the successor. And the pros of this beginning verse.

00:20:13--> 00:20:45

Allah is saying that there must be it's, it's, it's hard to put it into English that you all know, but a lot of saying that there has to be a group of you that do this, there must be a group of you to do this, there needs to be a group of you that their job, their job is to call to that which is good, and to forget that which is evil. And if those who will be the successful, not just those alone, that will be the successful, but they will then be the catalyst for everyone else to be successful. They are the catalyst for everyone else, to have success. And these people,

00:20:47--> 00:21:16

even though claim, our jealousy, Allah has talked about them in his book, mentor I just saw again, he's talking about them as being the strangers of the strangers of the strangers that these people who Milan is referring to in this verse, are the real corrida, because not only are they strangers to the world being their Muslim, they're also strangers, to the Muslims, and even strangers amongst themselves, he said, but without this

00:21:17--> 00:21:54

group of people, the rest of us would be almost without this small group who do this who are taking up this position, everyone else will be lost, because they are the one who keep the balance. They are the one who keep the bounce between right and wrong. And as we also know, most all of my said, if there was no one if no one like this existed, along with the wycoff decrease in this we know from the Harry Potter who seldom allow will never destroy this world, as long as there are people amongst it, who are still calling to good, they're doing this, they're calling to the internet forbidding evil. If there's no one left, like that, enforce the law will be done with us. So there's these

00:21:54--> 00:21:59

people who actually be successful, and they make it possible for other people to be successful.

00:22:02--> 00:22:02

Now,

00:22:04--> 00:22:10

when it comes to obligations, we have two types of obligations in Islam, right? Yeah, fine. Yeah. For

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

what is

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

what is for

00:22:15--> 00:22:54

the individual obligation, right, everybody has to do, like Salah is an individual obligation, I cannot call you on the phone, and be like, yeah, I'm busy at work for you, you know, when you make too hot for me, and I'll get you on vacation, it just doesn't work like that, you have to pray, you have to fast you have to do all of these four navigations no one can free you from it. Now what is 45 even though the definitions right there, 45 means that there must be enough people doing this obligation in a sufficient way so that it can be said that the job is getting done. For instance, if you have a village, it is 45 that there's a doctor, right? So people get sick, you need somebody to

00:22:54--> 00:23:39

go to is 45 that is a doctor. And until there's enough doctors to take care of the people, everyone is incentive for not doing it. And everyone has an obligation to learn the field of medicine or to set aside people to learn the field of medicine until there's enough people to take care of the village and similar things like this like Salatin janazah as far as long as there's enough people doing it, nobody else has to do it. And and even though I know the word is sensitive, but we have to kind of free ourselves from that, because it's only been made sensitive due to a very serious ploy. But that was rules are very similar to the rules of tattoos to be the man of fighting for the sake

00:23:39--> 00:23:43

of Allah very similar rules, very, very, very similar rules. For instance,

00:23:47--> 00:24:07

to go out in Jihad to to check a threat of the Muslim state is 45. Not everyone has to go on lost in that in that first Don't let all of them go. Because it's 45. Just send it off for them. Leave the rest of them to learn Dean, the same with with Dell, it's funky fi and it's in its in its sense of

00:24:09--> 00:24:15

in its relative general sense. It's 45. But just like with Japan,

00:24:16--> 00:24:35

first and foremost, we have to ask ourselves the question, is there enough people doing data so that it can be said that the job is getting done sufficiently? If any of you agree that our calling to a law is being done enough, and by enough people so that it can be said that job isn't getting done? I want you to raise your hand?

00:24:37--> 00:24:59

I don't think so. There's nowhere near enough. There's nowhere near enough. Nowhere in here. Because if so we would not be in this condition that we're in today. We would not constantly be on the defense against army the army if there was enough people doing this so that automatically the entire oma is guilty. All of us including me, I'm still guilty. Even

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

I'm doing it, I'm still guilty, because I have the obligation to try to help more people, I need to try to get it to that point where the more people need to be doing it. And this is one of the reasons why I do this so much is because I want to at least be able to stand before long the day of judgment and say, yo, like I did, I did what I could do. I mean, I did what was within my capacity. And that's all we're asked to do. But the oma as a whole is not doing with it with what is within its capacity, for sure.

00:25:26--> 00:25:27

And

00:25:28--> 00:26:08

there are many reasons I can put behind that I can give you a few of the, the my thought processes behind it. One of the greatest reasons is because we have lost the understanding of the status of the doubt, we've lost an understanding of the status of one who does this job. Now, because I get asked this a lot people asked me this, when I travel different places, you know that picking up from the airport first time meeting me? Yeah, I can usually what do you do for a living? I said, Well, you invited me here on a Monday, and you're not sending me home till Friday. So this is what I do for a living. You have to hear for the entire week. That No, no, no, what do you really do for a

00:26:08--> 00:26:42

living? I said, Well, if I did anything else, I would already be fired. So this is what I do for a living. And they're like, well, how can you do this for a living? So that's a big problem, and I get this a lot is that people do not listen to this as a profession. It's not given that status that it should be given that, yes, this is a profession. Just like being a doctor as a profession, just like it is a profession. It's not a hobby, it's not a game of pickup basketball, you know, I mean, it's it's much more serious than that. And this is the problem is that it's not giving up the status level. So the people who do it, do not get that level of support that they deserve. And then

00:26:42--> 00:26:48

everyone just thinks that they can just pick it up as a hobby, people that don't have any experience or just get up and just start doing it. And this is when you get into a lot of trouble.

00:26:51--> 00:27:28

So it's not given that status level. And if and God forbid, our children say that they want to go to study overseas or studying the madrasa and they want to become an Ireland, also kind of they can't do that. You know, I mean, you can't do that you can't do it. You got to go become a doctor or a lawyer or something. Yeah, that's fine. Why can't I do both? Why can't they do both. But that's a whole nother side issue that we're gonna go down. But um, so in his general sense, that was hard to find. But just like, if someone was to attack the Muslim states, just like somebody was to come and attack the city of Medina, that obligation of

00:27:30--> 00:27:42

for keyfile, then goes to being fought, automatically, everyone who has the capability, who has the capacity to defend the oma has to do so there's anyone that that runs a loss and kind of what that is promising.

00:27:44--> 00:28:17

As he promised them just a small punishment. No, he's promised in my seat in some of the lowest parts of the handle, for the for banging that obligation. And that was is the same obligation. And I'm going to show you why in just a moment, when Islam is under threat, and this is according to the most of the only man when Islam is being attacked. When the the the religion of the loss of hunter with Allah is being threatened and being maimed and mocked and laughed that when we know the status of other schools that will settle them is at the point where it is now where he's being

00:28:18--> 00:28:53

mocked and being talked about in such the foul language that we heard of in the cartoon, all of these different things. When this is rampant, the obligation, general obligation of funkified for that one, then reverse to be informed on. Its already formed by and do the default that there's not enough people, not enough people doing it. But then it goes doubly, to being fired on if there's such a thing. Because of the fact that Islam is under attack. And every Muslim is is is compelled by laws, to defend the need to defend their religion, defend the boss accountable to others, and defend the dignity of our muscles on top of it.

00:28:54--> 00:29:04

And since we're not doing that as a whole, then I grew up myself. That's why I say we like myself. Since we're not doing that.

00:29:05--> 00:29:17

The only thing I can realize is that we really don't understand what's what's what's his name is William. That's as basic as I can put it. Because if we really

00:29:18--> 00:29:51

believe that Allah soprano what Allah the way we should, or the way that we say we believe in Allah, then we would not be able to just stand idly by and listen to some of the things that people say about Allah soprano with Anna, we will put your ears would not be able to handle it. If we really, really believed in our soul, sophomoric, send them the way we're supposed to, if we really loved him, more than we loved our own cells, which is true email, which also said I said, I'm told even Omar that you do not really believe in me until I am more relevant to you than your own self.

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

If we really loved him like that, we would not be able to just sit by and listen to people defaming the way they defame him. We would not just go to sit idly by

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

And listen to people give the slanders in the abuses upon our beloved Rasul Salahuddin center. We couldn't, we couldn't not do it. And I can't I just it hurts my ears too much. I think sometimes my ears want to bleed from from hearing and reading are my eyes want to believe when I read some of these things

00:30:22--> 00:30:48

about that they say about our beloved or susanville, the Hollywood cinema. And some Muslims, they do react, they do react. And I'm sure it's the same thing in Australia, but but they react only through emotion. They react only through anger. This is incorrect. This is incorrect. They react only through anger. And this is not a reaction that is done with anything done in anger. You automatically know there is no

00:30:49--> 00:31:02

automatically You know, there is no effort because there's only one person who provokes anger. And who is that? Shake on? That's it. That's it. So if you react in anger, we see Muslims running around screaming and yelling.

00:31:03--> 00:31:13

I asked him show me one time, one one time, where any of the Sahaba acted this way. It did this the only time I was also law when he was suddenly whatever become

00:31:14--> 00:31:23

angry is for Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bring people back that he would never he would never lose his temper for personal reasons and just flip out into the crazy things like like some of us do.

00:31:26--> 00:31:47

But we the way we should react is to spread the truth about our beloved messenger will symbolize you sending. And I'm going to set off on a lot of signups in sha Allah just because I want to hit some points that I hit later on in the course that are that are part of the beginning, but I spread them out through the whole thing. But since we're not doing them, I have to give it to the beginning.

00:31:49--> 00:31:50

I'm going to give you one reason.

00:31:51--> 00:31:54

And I told this in a lot of my downward

00:31:56--> 00:32:08

events talking to non Muslims. Because I get asked, it happened a lot after these these cartoons in Denmark and different things that nature people were asking me, you know, why do you guys act so crazy, you know things and this and that.

00:32:10--> 00:32:23

If there was no other reason to love him itself a lot of synonyms, then this one, this is more than enough. And I teach this also in my course on

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

the true gospel of Jesus Christ on my course of the history of Christianity, which some of you may have seen on YouTube or on my website.

00:32:34--> 00:32:40

It was seldom said that every prophet was given one die in their lifetime.

00:32:41--> 00:33:03

that a lot of promise to answer correct dissonance. This is with authentic heavy commercial service. And I usually bring this up when I talk about the the prayer of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane that this was his prayer this was this could have been this God that I wasn't going to answer, which I you know, most scholars say that it's most likely that Allah that He made it to auto saves him from his crucifixion.

00:33:04--> 00:33:19

But the beloved thing about filament symbol or send them as he said that every prophet used it in their lifetime, that one will either love getting them as a free gift, you ask whatever you want, I'll give it to you. He said every prophet used in their lifetime, except for me,

00:33:20--> 00:34:02

I have saved mine, for you on the Day of Judgment. And that one, also, Sarah, sell them could have used the money that he needed it many times in his life, there are many opportunities in his life, where his naps could have taken over. And he could have just asked a lot to give him this job. But he held on to. And when we all know when he will use it will be the day when nobody else would be willing to stand before a loss of how to where to add an hour of resource or loss. And then we'll go and approach a lot and frustrated before him. And he will get he will, he will take this jar and pull it out and use it. And this dollar will be one word, only my own man, forgive him. And just

00:34:02--> 00:34:42

because of his selfless sacrifice for us allow forgiveness entire online because of that promise that he made to auto send him that I would answer this to offer you. So if there were no other reason to live in a homeless person, more than you love yourself. This isn't if the if there was nothing else. This is of course there's so much more We have no time to enumerate. But if it was only for this one reason, and this is what I tell the non Muslims, this is why we have listened and so much. This is his selflessness that he gave for us not only the people he can see. But for the people he knew were coming after him that he would never see he still held on to that dawn. For you

00:34:42--> 00:34:57

and me. That was for us. And this is why we have to say when we hear his name, when we think of him when we mentioned him, we must have to oh we should say something and he himself because of this reason if there was nothing else that's just assignment

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

so

00:35:01--> 00:35:08

In this life that we're living now, how many of you would agree with me that Darwin is far too if

00:35:09--> 00:35:12

it is an individual obligation that no one is for you.

00:35:13--> 00:35:57

I agree, it's it's an individual obligation that no one is for you. Meaning that if we don't do it, all of us are in trouble before a lot of data, which I'm going to show you in a moment. And there's no excuse. There's no excuse whatsoever for not doing that. Not only because of some of the hobbies that you will see, because almost always we know set the bar low, for now is complete for me, even if there's one verse, but just like if there was a village, and there was no doctor, as far as I know everyone to learn how to be a doctor. So then that lets you know that is part of our obligation to learn how to code the last monolith and to be done, you are feeling right, by being here today.

00:36:00--> 00:36:07

Now, anything that a law has laid down, as a command has two things that come along with it, anybody know what those are?

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

Two things come along with everything.

00:36:13--> 00:36:41

You wouldn't want to show every command of a law and now we're going into some sort of fifth class with every command of a loss of Hannah with Ireland has a reward and punishment, a reward for doing it, which is the blessing of abasa kind of what the island that he gives us reward, even for things he's commanded us to do. And there is a punishment for not doing almost everything that he's commanded us to do. And now with our I wish I had a chalkboard that I could write on, I would show you something with data.

00:36:43--> 00:36:58

It has the capacity to have the greatest reward of any single act you could ever do. I'm going to tell you why. It also has the capacity to get you the greatest punishment of anything else. And I'm going to tell you why.

00:37:00--> 00:37:06

Now, when it comes to the greater reward, I'm going to give you some verses, if you notice, in this course, I try to stick to the the mid Hajj of

00:37:07--> 00:37:21

the early scholars of this man, where they would bring up the point they would give you a few verses from Quran, they will give you a few hudy maybe a little bit of explanation. And that's it. Because if you need more than that, then I can't give it to you follow a lower

00:37:22--> 00:37:34

level explanation. There's nothing left. If you don't believe me after that, then then as much as I can do, but as we know, Allah says in the Koran woman XML folder even down even lower, I mean, it's totally fine. I'll follow the anatomy mostly me.

00:37:35--> 00:38:10

Again, there is a min has a demo, of course, in this verse as the same, like there wasn't sort of phenomena which I meant to go back and tell you, because it's you don't get to it too later on the middle hatch of data that is given in just as a brief, very brief summary, you could probably write this down and sort of at 125. And call to the way we lowered what was an unfair preaching argument among the best to manage it that way. And there is what the first one is, oh, boy is a visitor visa bill have nothing. That means the first key to Darwin is knowledge, you have to gain knowledge, you have to have knowledge of that what you're calling to which we don't get to the best part of

00:38:10--> 00:38:42

attributes of the die, you want to lay down this, this this methodology, but I'm giving you a snippet, then the next thing is what for those who are receptive to the message, you give the beautiful speech. For those who are receptive, the first job is to give the beautiful speech. And then the last point, the last point is for those who are obstinate, for those who are arguing for those who reject your message or don't want to hear what you have to say, then the last step is you arguing or debating with him or you discourse with them, but then you still must do it in a way that is

00:38:44--> 00:39:12

beautiful in a way that is nice, a way that is sweet in a way that is soothing in a way that is all of these things. So this is the magic, our knowledge, deliver the message, those who are receptive. That's it. That's what infinite demand has been for them because they accept the call. But for those who are obstinate and reject food and argumentative, then a lot goes on and says okay, now you do debate with them or deal with them or argue with them, in a way these events. So that's the last step, not the first. That's the last night the first

00:39:13--> 00:39:33

this is also a minute to download. In this verse, there's three points that Allah also lays down in this verse. What is the first point Allah says woman absolute? How many men die? Who can be better? And this is a rhetorical question, Who can be better in speech than one who calls to Allah, Allah saying there is no one

00:39:34--> 00:40:00

that is better with what comes out of their mouth, meaning that no one in a general sense the scholars will say that Allah saying that there's no one better than this person than one who calls to Allah. That's the first point. Then then the one who calls to Allah was the second point while I'm in the store, and they do the actions of that which they are calling to. Not only are they call them into a love, they do the actions of a Muslim they are do the actions that are pleasing to Allah.

00:40:00--> 00:40:16

So these are hand in hand. This is hand in hand with that when you do that one, you also need to be living it, you also need to be doing your best, it doesn't mean you need to be an angel. because trust me, I'm probably worse than any of us sitting here all of us have our, our problems and our issues.

00:40:18--> 00:40:20

But we try to keep that between us. And the last panel with

00:40:23--> 00:41:02

the third point is more like the psychology of the die. This is kind of like the psychology of the die, how the die should think, the hall in a meeting. And he says to the people, for sure, indeed, in any mean honestly mean I am from the Muslims. This is his attitude, or her attitude is just, I'm a Muslim, and I'm proud of it. This is my Islam. This is my dignity. This is my full one, that I'm awesome, and I have no whims about it. I have no problem with you seeing as a Muslim, I have no problem when you see me with this big left guy this this is even though this is not mandatory, I wear it as a walking billboard. But I have no problem with you see me wearing a jacket and praying

00:41:02--> 00:41:14

in the streets. And I don't have a problem with that. Because this is my attitude. We're calling in men. And I'm assuming for sure, without a doubt, I'm a Muslim. This is the attitude of the dots.

00:41:16--> 00:41:30

Also, we know this verse very well, later on, but the region the mass, that you are the best nation speaking of this habit, first and foremost, that they were the best nation ever to be arisen from mankind. Why? Why did a lot give them this status,

00:41:33--> 00:41:43

a call for two, because you command to that which is good, and you prevent or abstain people from that which is evil. And you believe in karma.

00:41:44--> 00:41:53

There's so many things that I could give you with this verse. That'll give me just a few. First and foremost, this a habit with the best nation ever.

00:41:55--> 00:41:57

for mankind, we cannot

00:41:58--> 00:42:11

achieve that status, because they they have it by themselves. And the reason why they are all in that status is because they built Islam from scratch. They do what we have now from nothing from the ground up.

00:42:13--> 00:42:16

Anything that we do after that has to be

00:42:17--> 00:42:19

following what they've already laid down.

00:42:20--> 00:42:36

That is a basic principle of Islam of Aikido that when you don't do that, that's where you start with deviations, that you might, the only thing we can do is is build on what they've already laid down for us and draw from that which they have left for us. We cannot reinvent the wheel, it's already done. All you can do is

00:42:38--> 00:42:50

is improve on it make it better, but it's still a wheel. Just like in Islam, you can't add anything or subtract to it, you just make it compatible with the world we live in. And we draw from it and deduce solutions for problems that we are facing now.

00:42:51--> 00:43:07

So we can't reach that status. But as I'm going to give you at the end another note based on this list, I'm saving this for the end. But they were they had this status for a reason. And the law says because they were this was their lifestyle. their lifestyle was

00:43:10--> 00:43:11

what does this What does this mean?

00:43:14--> 00:43:16

So Mike, tell me how it's usually translated over here.

00:43:17--> 00:43:19

How's it using translated here and

00:43:20--> 00:43:22

enjoying the good or forbidding evil, right?

00:43:23--> 00:43:42

The same in the states you enjoy what is good and you forbid what is evil? That's not really the proper translation. Honestly, it's not really the proper, it's not really the proper connotation of the verse of the wording. I'm going to tell you why. I'm a good model. What is the word I'm going to mean?

00:43:44--> 00:43:45

What is the word

00:43:47--> 00:44:19

amruta. Command, amorous commands command, just like the Amir is the command is a command. So what is the law telling us to do? Is he telling us to ask people to do good? Is he telling us to tell them you know, you probably should be doing that. It's good for you. It's better for you is that what is the last 10 minutes? He's telling us Admiral, the modelview commander, what is good, you command the people to do what is good, you make a way to facilitate for them to do what is good. One of the greatest way for this is the implementation of it's my fill in the blank.

00:44:20--> 00:44:26

One of the greatest ways to help people to command them to do good is the implementation of the

00:44:28--> 00:44:48

so not the law has lots of problems. Surely, this is what the shooting is for. To make it possible to do this to implement American middle class and then call you you make it a one because this is why there should be is apparently the word shannara is a path a path to what a path to facilitate for people to do good and distinguished evening.

00:44:50--> 00:44:52

What is the word animal car What does that mean?

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

It means to prevent or abstain meaning that you don't just tell them

00:45:00--> 00:45:43

No, you shouldn't do this. You prevent them from doing that. You abstain from them from doing this, you make it, you make a way to keep them from doing this. Does that make more sense to you that this is what a lot is telling us, he is commanding this amount, which we're supposed to be the middle of a middle way, that you're supposed to be the balance between good and evil. That's why Allah gave us Islam. That's why this exists to be the counterbalance in the world. For good and evil. We are supposed to be the ones setting the standard, that this is right, this is wrong. We're the ones supposed to be setting the standard, not the first one to break it. That does that make sense? We're

00:45:43--> 00:46:01

the ones supposed to be showing the people that this is the more proper way of life. But we don't do that. Because we don't really even personally implement that into our life, the first person we have to start with us. And this is why Allah says he will not change the condition people today change, what is

00:46:02--> 00:46:05

what is within themselves, it will seem. So

00:46:07--> 00:46:51

this is what the law is telling us to do to be that catalyst for the world to know right and wrong. And if you are not that, meaning this is not that we are not going to look for sure, then we're in trouble. We're not doing our job, we are not doing our job. That means we need to be trying to establish ourselves as that as that place to where we now show the world what is good, and what is what is bad. And we do it not because of we want to gain dominance, not because of the we want to be Tyron eyes in the world. No, because we know that's best, we know that the ball the loss of Hannah to Allah is best for the creation. And that even if they don't know that we do it anyway, because we

00:46:51--> 00:47:07

know that it's best for them, even if they may not understand that. inshallah. Now, the third point I want to make and this is the answer to a question that if any of you have been involved in dow, I'm sure you had it. How many of you have ever been asked, Why can good people not go to heaven?

00:47:09--> 00:47:12

and Indian asked, Why can good people not go to heaven?

00:47:13--> 00:47:16

Someone who is very good, like Mother Teresa, why can't she go to heaven?

00:47:17--> 00:47:24

There's one answer for this, and Allah puts it in this verse. What is the third condition that a Lord gave to the Sahaba for being the best nation?

00:47:25--> 00:47:51

What took me known as the NES. This is why this is the answer to that question, to be honest, is because they do not believe in karma. And what is what is the catalyst is very simple if you think about it, but it just I didn't catch this for a while. That there's an acceptance of deeds is based solely on two principles, right? every deed is accepted based on two principles. Correct? What is the first principle

00:47:53--> 00:48:14

sincerity for who, for the first condition to acceptance of the deed is sincerity for a law. And then according according to the some of the message of the last seminar, without this, this deed is not accepted, as far as we can actually notice. It only counts for whatever is done. Keep, for instance,

00:48:16--> 00:48:33

a good person, they don't believe in a lot, they help an old lady across the street. There are many reasons why they may do it, they may do it just because of their general concern for people, they may do it just because they want to look good in front of people, they want to be known as a good person that will be known as this or that. There may be many reasons why they do it.

00:48:34--> 00:49:11

And they get that fulfill. When they help the lady across the street, the old lady thanks, then the people look in, praise them, they feel good about themselves. And guess what? That's it, there's the reward. That's it, they have they have obtained all the reward they're going to get, even if a Muslim does it for those reasons, you got your reward. But for the believer, when they help this old lady across the street, they do it number one, because they know is pleasing to Allah Subhana Allah to other unknown and they want to please a lot, they do it for this reason. And then when they do it, they not only get the pleasure of a law in the Hereafter, they not only they get the the the,

00:49:12--> 00:49:43

the praise of the people as being a good person, they get the things of the old lady, and on the Day of Judgment, they will find that deep waiting for them. You see the difference? The difference is the belief in a month and the sincerity. non Muslims cannot have this. They don't have this because they don't have that counts. And I tell people that if if hypothetically, if there was any non Muslim, that could go to heaven based on good deeds. There would be one person who would be leading the pack, he would be far ahead of everyone else he would be the first one to go. Who do you think that will be?

00:49:46--> 00:49:59

I will call it would be the first one to go to Jenna based on good deeds. First one because all of a sudden some of the work it was sending them has told us and an authentic hadith that because of all the good he did for me

00:50:00--> 00:50:27

We'll call it would be the least punished person in telephony that that dude has done has elevated his status in general. I don't know if you know if that's so good, he's elevated the status in tandem to be the least punished person. And that is you'll be made aware of similar fire. That is so hard, and that will make his brain annoying. But that's it. But that's as high as he could go. That's the roof. Because he did not believe it could not just just one thing, just him saying that he

00:50:29--> 00:50:34

could have taken him from the highest level of jahannam to the highest level of genuine.

00:50:35--> 00:50:56

Just like that. It's that catalyst of belief. And this is why non Muslims cannot even if they're good, no matter how good they are, do not go to Paradise, because of this simple fact, that it's not done with a belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. Is that clear? anybody have a question on that? I mean, this is this is the reason this is the answer for that question, because it's not done with the proof of loss of hammer.

00:50:59--> 00:51:01

Now, of course,

00:51:03--> 00:51:13

anything that has an eye there was a couple of hotties, but actually let me get to them. I think that they would go they skipped around this silly PowerPoint presentation. There we go.

00:51:14--> 00:51:16

And to speak now.

00:51:17--> 00:51:34

This, we know our results some of them said conveyed for me, even if it is one, as conveyed for me, even if it's one verse, and we were just talking about reward. So I'm gonna leave it on this one, even though the Arabic just disappeared.

00:51:36--> 00:51:56

This hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam said that the one who calls to guidance will receive the reward of the one who guided without the reward of the guided one the last. Now I know that is like a tongue twister. I know. Thanks. Like I said, I wish I had a tote board so I can show this to you.

00:51:58--> 00:51:59

I'm going to draw on this notepad and hopefully,

00:52:01--> 00:52:06

hopefully you all can see it. Now how many of you have ever heard of a pyramid business?

00:52:08--> 00:52:09

They have that within their pyramid businesses.

00:52:12--> 00:52:28

pyramid businesses such let's say Can everybody see that circle at the top? I know it's a long way away from visualize woman, there's a circle at the top. Let's say this is me. And I'm in the business of selling water. Right? So water. Now what I do is

00:52:29--> 00:52:55

I sell to people water, right? And they like the water so much. But I tell them hey, you know, why don't you get involved in selling water with me? And I give them water and then they start selling water for me. Now they're making profit, right? Because they're selling one. But guess what? Because I brought them into the business. I'm making profit off of them. When they sell a bottle of water, I get reward for it as well. So really, I'm selling water without selling one right.

00:52:56--> 00:52:59

Now let's say those two people go out and they do the same thing that I did.

00:53:01--> 00:53:34

They get to people see how that started like a pyramid. Let's say they get two people to do the same thing. They said hey, why don't you sell the water for us. Now you have four people at the bottom selling on the two people above them are getting benefit from their water sales. And guess who's also getting benefits from them water sales me all the way to the bottom. And now this can there's no end to this. It could just keep going and going and going until there's so many people selling the water. I can just sit home and drink water. I don't have to do any more selling. Right I make myself rich just sitting home just from those two people. I can just set myself up from life. This

00:53:34--> 00:53:41

is this is how a lot of people suck people into pyramid businesses even though it may be a scam but the whole pyramid scheme looks looks nice.

00:53:44--> 00:53:51

That was the best driven business you can ever get into. I'm gonna tell you why. The best in the business and because of this.

00:53:52--> 00:54:37

Let's say I gave data to these two people. They came to Islam do the due to the guidance of Allah subhana wa Dianna. Now Guess what? I'm receiving the reward of the one who is guided without a reward being lost. What does that mean? That means every time these two people makes a law, guess what? I get us a lot on my scale. They make a lot basically, for me as a good deed as a free me, but it's like I made a lot as well. Every time they do any person of any good deed. I get the reward for it. It goes on my scale of deeds. And if they invite two people and those who become this lamb, they are getting the good deeds of those people. And I'm also getting the good deeds of those people all

00:54:37--> 00:54:45

the way down and there's no end to it. Do you do Do you see what I'm getting out? There is no end to the amount of good deeds you could be earning.

00:54:46--> 00:54:47

No, no not.

00:54:48--> 00:54:53

For instance, imagine the the Egyptian guy who gave our tissue a few semesters.

00:54:54--> 00:55:00

What type of I mean that guy could probably retire. Now seriously, he could retire from from everything other than

00:55:00--> 00:55:05

doing his five you could do is five in the city does everything else is done if I mean,

00:55:06--> 00:55:10

the person I don't know how many of you've ever heard my story about coming to Islam, but it was a drug dealer

00:55:11--> 00:55:22

who called me to Islam. And the only thing he did was point me to the masjid. That's it, he didn't tell me nothing, except go to the machine. I went, that's it.

00:55:23--> 00:55:45

And I always tell people this and I was making to offer him that I got no noise. I don't know what happened, he got arrested. I never seen him since that if he dies with less than a moment in his heart. And he dies on the start of a muscle tunnel with meaning these brand doing all of these things. But that's it, he only does the minimal amount that is required for you to be a Muslim.

00:55:47--> 00:55:49

But yet he does so many bad deeds.

00:55:51--> 00:56:35

My hope for him is that I can do enough good myself and that the people that have come to Islam based on my efforts, that we can do more good deeds in our lifetimes than he could ever do in his lifetime. And that hopefully, he can go for a loss of Canada with Ireland when he's resurrected, thinking it's over. I'm done. That's it, it's over for me that because the soul No, it's over for me. And then on the database proper for Allah Subhana, Allah, Allah and all of a sudden this angel is dumping mountains of deeds, deeds that he can even see the end of. And he's telling a long way we you have the wrong guy. I didn't do all this. You have like four lifetimes worth of salon? I could

00:56:35--> 00:56:39

not do this. I do. I never prayed for autonomy. I never prayed.

00:56:41--> 00:57:15

How did this happen? And allow me to remind him of that one small moment in time. Do you remember when you told that young man to go to children? Yes, that young man did hope all of this to happen in the people he brought to Islam. And just because of that, you're going to gentlemen, maybe not just a gym, but to the highest levels of gentlemen. It can happen, it can happen. This is the watered down. That's why I said that that one has some of the greatest rewards you can not imagine. If you call someone to Islam, and they die as a Shaheed for a loss of Hannah went to Ireland.

00:57:19--> 00:57:49

So there is no, there's no, there's no amount, we don't know how much you can multiply just our own leads, we don't know how much multiply imagine the next person how much their DS are going to multiply. This is why I'm glad I'm in this business. Because everybody's greedy for something. You know, a lot of people are greedy for working on big homes and houses. I'm greedy. I'm very greedy. But I'm rooting for the hereafter. I want to have mountain, I want to have multi millions of goodies in here, African Sharla. And this is the easiest way to do it.

00:57:50--> 00:58:05

Because it was also someone who when he was shown the easy way he would take it, he would always take the easy route of doing things is the easiest way to get out. There is no easy. It's not easy, let me tell you, but it's the easiest way to build up.

00:58:07--> 00:58:28

But it's definitely not easy. It's not an interest for those of you and I'm not going to get to that in this course. And when I'm running out of time, I have 15 minutes. So let me know. I'm not going to get to it in this course. But for those of you who might have the conception that the life of a color to a law is vainglorious, that it's prestigious, that it's, you know,

00:58:29--> 00:58:36

something that comes along with a lot of perks and all of these, let me just give you a reality check right now.

00:58:37--> 00:59:04

That that is so far from the truth, that it's not even remotely funny. Because when you choose this path, and I don't do this to scare anybody away, and I don't I'm not going to get to this. I wish I wish I could just part of the attributes of the demo that you have to be ready for. I don't want to scare anybody away from Dawa. But I don't want you to get yourself into something you're not ready for it at the beginning. You have to be ready to become public enemy number one, not to the government,

00:59:05--> 00:59:50

not to the society to someone even worse than then who shake off. You have to be ready to become public enemy number one, to stay calm in everything that he has only just control he will focus on you. Why what and I know this is a side note but I wanted to break off in some segments I want to give you the strong foundation one Why? Because of the saying of shape on where did shape until it was the kind of what Allah he would be. Is he in the club is in the I don't know what you guys call them open your clubs, discos, nightclubs, whatever it is he is he is he in the streets with all of the gangsters, the proper thugs and all of that. Is that where she thought no, no, no, he's already

00:59:50--> 00:59:58

got people working for him doing that. those are those are low ranking. You don't have to worry they are doing their own thing. What do you say Tom? What are the problems a lot he would be

01:00:02--> 01:00:03

He's almost

01:00:04--> 01:00:09

done this, because these are the people he's worried about. He's on the straight path, he's where you are.

01:00:11--> 01:00:22

And he walks up and down that path. And I want you to imagine the sort of a loss of mine What I like a highway straight. When you go down the highway, what is there every few miles,

01:00:23--> 01:00:58

there's an exit, there's some way to get off, right? The shape controls this highway. And what happens when you start approaching exit. There's every type of enticement to get off. If you followed every road sign, you would get off at every exit, right? Every exit now this one, I don't know if we have that here. You have big neon signs, exit no exit. If you listen to every one of them, you know, we're like that Jim Carrey movie? Yes, man. If you were like that, and you said yes to everything you would never get anywhere, you would get off every exit, this is shaped on, he walks up and down, putting up things along this path to try to get us to get off, he wants us to get

01:00:58--> 01:01:17

off exit that entices us get off, you know, this is the way this driver get off you. And usually when you get off of an exit, what happens, it's very hard to get back on, you got to go around the circle and do this and go around and you got to get back on. And you might get lost, you might not ever get back on. So this is where she found us, it goes along this path and tries to get the business off of this path.

01:01:18--> 01:01:55

But even worse than that than just the normal Muslim going along the path is the die. Because not only is the die on this path, he's now going up and down tearing down the things that show on is trying to entice people off the path with and when people are trying to get off, he's stopping them. And the people that are off, sometimes he goes off and gets them and bring them back. So shaytan is like whoa, buddy, wait a minute, hold on. Now, you know, enough is enough. You know, I mean, I mean, this is a this is too much. Not only am I trying to get people off this path, but you're working harder to get them back on, and you're trying to keep them from getting off. So you see you're

01:01:55--> 01:02:30

really messing up chiffons plot, you're really messing with him. And he does not like that. And he realizes that if he can get you, the one doing all of this to stop what you're doing, he can get more people off. And he might be able to drag a lot of people off with you. If you go, a lot of people might go with you. So his focus will be on you. For sure. Just like his focus, when the profits of a loss of power dial on this earth shape, time for everything. Everything was on the back burner except for them. His focus was on them alone.

01:02:31--> 01:03:01

And since this Omar has given been given the responsibility of taking up the job of that was only given to profits, then shaytan has made us focus, especially those of us who call it a downer. So do not think it's being lawyers. Because it's not it's not it's not a not a not an easy road to go down. But from experience. And I'm telling you anyone I know that does this personally that I know that does this for a full time living. And there's only a couple handfuls in the world.

01:03:02--> 01:03:21

None of them are credit. And none of them would say that they would ever trade it for anything in the world. And I'm one of them. I would not trade this for anything in the world because there's no more fulfilling feeling in your life than this. And of course, I do teach martial arts on the psychology students, I'm doing all these other things. But this is my focus is what I like to do. chama

01:03:22--> 01:03:54

now, I hope you see the great reward. Do you understand that? Does everyone do any questions about how great of a reward can be given for this? If I stopped right here should be enough all of a sudden, let's go go do something. But I have to give you the bad news. But the good news always comes about this right? There's never just good news alone. That's very, very, everybody tells you what's the good. A lot of people come to me, you know, like, you wanna hear some good news. I'm like, Yeah, but what's the bad news? because anytime there's good news, always, always some bad news with it. There's bad news.

01:03:55--> 01:04:01

And the bad news is for those of us who abandoned this duty of calling to Allah subhana wa, ala.

01:04:02--> 01:04:36

And really Only a fool would do it. Because not only Allah has given it as a command, he didn't give us an option. So really, he doesn't even have to reward us for this. He can just say do it because I said to do it. But he said do it. Not only will you be fulfilling an obligation, but I will give you the greatest reward of any deed that you could possibly imagine to do in your lifetime. Other than dedicating your life to this, you know, sacrificing life and sake of Allah and even that you can talk that because maybe you can get 10 other people to do inshallah you get in the woods. There's also a great one. And it's one of the grievous in the Quran.

01:04:38--> 01:04:42

Allah says in sort of Baccarat at 159 160

01:04:43--> 01:04:58

Allah says, indeed, and and anytime, according to the student of Sierra Nevada Quran anytime you see this word when a verse starts with enough, you better pay attention. Just like if you see Yeah, you have livina you pay attention

01:04:59--> 01:04:59

when you see

01:05:00--> 01:05:13

In a lot of just starts a verse not Yeah, you have Levine, he just started in Verily, then it's really really need to pay some attention. Allah says verily indeed without a doubt, those who can see what we have sit down,

01:05:14--> 01:05:39

have the clear proofs and the guidance, after we have made it clear for the people in the book. This means that a lot of saying for after he's made this deal clear for us after he's made Islam plain after you sent this to the book, The guidance, the messenger, after he's done all this, those who conceal that message those who conceal it. Allah says, they are cursed by Allah.

01:05:40--> 01:05:58

And by those who curse, except for those who repent, and reveal that which they have been concealing, those I will accept their repentance for I am the one who accepts it the Most Merciful. Now initially, this versus speaking of who,

01:05:59--> 01:06:07

Bani Israel, he, they were the most prominent at doing this concealing this concealing, they were the most prominent to do it, and then who followed after them.

01:06:09--> 01:06:12

And I find that the Christians did the same thing they can see,

01:06:13--> 01:06:19

power was the big person who sold everything, not want to be anywhere near him. And

01:06:20--> 01:06:21

who's next

01:06:23--> 01:06:38

us and our salsa lesson and told us this he said after me, you will follow after them to the Jews and the Christians span by span bit by bit by inch, so much so that they jumped into the hole of a sandwiches if you will.

01:06:40--> 01:06:49

So we are following in their plot and in their ploy. And Allah has promised what occurs? Can anyone who is cursed by Allah good agenda.

01:06:51--> 01:07:29

Krishna says about that, even though you know we are Muslims believe in a law but the law says that he will put curse upon these people. People who are cursed by loss of hand with a hammer, do not have a good standing. I can't say where anyone will go. I don't have that option. But you I don't want to be near you on the day of judgment when the critical law is upon you. In this verse, Allah does not say just the person that you're after. He says that Allah will curse you. Meaning in most of the quoting the Mufasa in the Quran in this life, he will curse you, and in the hereafter he will curse you. And this is what we have seen with Benny's writing. The curse of the law is upon them no

01:07:29--> 01:07:38

matter where they are on the earth, they will never have peace. And I got kicked out of a synagogue across the street from my house in Florida for this. They asked me how do we get peace in Palestine? I said except it's not

01:07:40--> 01:07:46

that's it you want peace in Palestine except this name. You know, as I told him, you know, as well as I do start playing with me.

01:07:48--> 01:07:50

Like I'm in and out of their life

01:07:51--> 01:07:52

anyway,

01:07:54--> 01:08:21

the Christian same way because of the laws upon them because and I and the curse of the law is different within in that they are Majnoon seriously when you deal with someone who has gotten into the belief that a law is a man and that Jesus Allah, you can see it in just dialoguing with them. They have they there, no matter how intelligent they are. They they are gone. They're gone. And I know because I deal with a lot of them. Because I'm like you have three PhDs, and you want to see and tell me that God can die.

01:08:23--> 01:08:26

You're an idiot. I hate to say it like that, but you're an idiot.

01:08:27--> 01:08:29

It's just part of the curse of the law upon them.

01:08:36--> 01:08:37

Now us

01:08:39--> 01:08:49

most of us are not as deceitful as the Jews were about the concealing of diversity of our last panel at the end. And most of us are not is

01:08:50--> 01:09:00

and I have to say you most give that give us some credit here most of us are not as dumb, as we see a lot of people who will say that Allah is a man and died and all of this crazy stuff.

01:09:02--> 01:09:05

But we still conceal the truth. How?

01:09:06--> 01:09:07

How do we conceal the truth?

01:09:09--> 01:09:14

We conceal the truth by not number one, not spreading it. And then according to the Sharia,

01:09:16--> 01:09:19

according to the law of a loss of power with Allah,

01:09:20--> 01:09:58

for you to be silent for you to be silent, in the face of blatant lies being spread about anything, but especially when blatant lies are being spread by the law. The de Nevada snam and the character of Mohammed Salah law it was sending them for you to see these lines being spread and you keep your mouth closed. Even though you have the opportunity to say or do something, then you are just as guilty according to the law, the law as the one who spreads the most. You are just as guilty as the ones spreading the lies of the ones trying to conceal the truth. You just as Give me your hand in hand with them.

01:10:00--> 01:10:03

We we also know this from the Hadith,

01:10:04--> 01:10:10

even though there are some scholars who say this and witnesses have this Hadith, Mashallah Danny boy has given it certification.

01:10:11--> 01:10:40

The Hadith where the angel went to the city, a lot told Angel go destroy a city. How many of you heard this howdy? A lot on an angel to go and destroy a city. And the angel went, and he came back. And so anyway, yeah, I love it. You want me to destroy the city? Because there's a believer that there is a believer there. And she didn't say that because of the scholars not having the knowledge of the chain of transmission of this. He later verified This is he the angels are a lot of angels. What does he do?

01:10:41--> 01:11:19

What does he do this guy and the angel told me he's a he's an avid he's a worshiper, he worship is you. He prays all night long and this and that. A lot of said, start with his house. When you destroy that town, start with his house, because no way in there. Did you mention that he calls other people know when they did you mention he's given a little bit more room for recording, no way that you mentioned any of this. So when you begin destroying northtown start with him. And we also notice the part of the son of a law that when he sends the dad is not spare anyone believes or not, and are our sole source and I'm used to worry about this. As we know the evaluation of the loved one

01:11:19--> 01:11:43

when she said when also saw the sentiment see clouds gathering in the distance. He was start pacing back and forth PC PC PC until it started raining. And it started raining he would become or leave. Then she asked Why? He said because when the devil comes in, says no one and I'm afraid that Allah will destroy my people. And it doesn't say anyone it will not even spread the message. Everyone goes is all it all alone wipes out everything. What is it that?

01:11:45--> 01:11:52

And so this is a big warning to us. This is a huge warning to us is that we don't

01:11:53--> 01:11:55

we don't know what we're getting ourselves into.

01:11:56--> 01:12:15

In our segments. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has also warned us in the Quran that if you don't do it, meaning that if you don't spread this message that Allah says, then I will replace you with people who will do it. And what does the law say about those people? A law makes it, it's kind of like

01:12:17--> 01:12:22

it's almost like an insult to us because the law says I will replace you with people who will not be like you.

01:12:24--> 01:12:25

They will love me and I will love him.

01:12:28--> 01:12:39

There are some scholars who said that that is happening that this has already been replaced by the new people coming to the dean about Islam are actually taking up the banner of spreading the religion, I don't know how much.

01:12:40--> 01:12:56

I don't know how much truth doesn't matter. Except that I think every almost every single day, I know nine out of 10 of them are people who can do development. So that should be a something of a warning to those of you who have been born into Islam, that maybe are not passing the torch on.

01:12:58--> 01:13:04

But we are not in a good place right now. And I just want to give you a hypothetical real quick. And

01:13:05--> 01:13:08

it's I'm going to use a very short I'm gonna use quite a couple of

01:13:10--> 01:13:18

I'm gonna use a couple of scenarios right now just to provoke your thought process. As a student of psychology, this is what I like to do. I like to provoke your thinking.

01:13:20--> 01:13:24

Let's say myself, what is

01:13:28--> 01:13:35

the same but as they are friends, roommates, we live with each other. We've known each other for a long time.

01:13:36--> 01:13:46

Let's say he has a disease to the disease. And this physical disease is one of the most rare ones in the world.

01:13:47--> 01:14:24

It's one that is the most painful in the world. it every day he's in pain, he has boys and blisters and he's in pain and he did all these crazy things to have an exam. But it's also not a terminal disease meaning that it won't just kill him. It'll just linger with him. As long as my wishes interlocutors linger with him in everyday, every moment his life, he'll be in pain. And I see him like this every day. But I've seen him like this so much now that I have become desensitized to his condition and desensitized to his condition. I see him like when I'm on a gurney asking me to

01:14:26--> 01:14:31

like be okay, he's like, Oh, I'm hurting good to get these I'm and I'm like, you know, love us toward him.

01:14:34--> 01:14:38

She finally allowed me to get a means of forgiveness that says purification. And I remember

01:14:41--> 01:14:45

one day someone comes to me, and they put something in my hand.

01:14:47--> 01:14:59

And they say that this pill. If you give it to them, it'll cure him. It'll cure him and he'll never suffer from this illness ever again. You'll be completely healed. So they give me this pill and

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

Guess what? I don't give it to him.

01:15:02--> 01:15:05

I don't give it to him. Why? Somebody asked me why?

01:15:07--> 01:15:46

I have my reasons. Let me tell you, number one, I'm busy. And we want to have two jobs. I have family, you have all kinds of things happening in my life, you don't understand how busy My life is, I don't have time to be messing with him with this bill. I just don't have time seriously. Number two, I'm not qualified. I'm not a doctor. I'm not a doctor, I have no qualifications to be giving him medicine. If he wants the medicine that the doctor should give it to him, or you should go to the doctor. One of the things that I was talking to him, he should go to the doctor, I don't I don't I'm not the monkey in the middle, and no qualifications. And number three, this is this is not the

01:15:46--> 01:15:51

case with the brother, I'm sure. But he's stubborn. He's arrogant. He's stubborn.

01:15:53--> 01:16:05

He won't listen to me, Chuck. Trust me, if I try to really get a fight. You won't even listen to me. There's no point to even deal with him. I know him to him. So I take the medicine and I put it in the dresser drawer I put in my pocket. I don't give it to him.

01:16:06--> 01:16:32

And no one else ever gives us anything. And he dies in that condition and the death from this disease is the most painful death any human being can ever experience. He dies that death. I want to ask you a hypothetical question. Do you think that on the Day of Judgment, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah is going to call me and him together? And question me about refusing to give him that feeling? Yes, it would happen, because I have a question.

01:16:33--> 01:16:54

And if he wished he could take me on that day. He could tell the lie, I want my I want my revenge, and a lock and remove all of my good deeds and start giving them to him, giving them to him give me if I run out. He got started getting his bad deeds and just because of that, I can end up being thrown into heaven. You think it can happen a woman with the hell just for starting a captain in?

01:16:56--> 01:16:59

A woman went to hell just was starving a cat to death. What do you think's gonna happen to me?

01:17:00--> 01:17:18

But the beautiful thing about Islam is that if he was a patient, Muslim and died with patience, and that disease and inshallah he could become a Shaheed, he could be floating over gender, and other day adjustment, Allah could call him and he could say, you know what, a lot I forgave him a long time ago. So you forgive him. And that's it.

01:17:20--> 01:17:21

That's the beauty of Islam.

01:17:22--> 01:17:50

But I want to tell you about something else. That's not hypothetical. That's very similar. That's not hypothetical. And it's a it's about a disease, that most of the people that you come in contact with every day have, that most of the people you meet every single day they have it. Most of the people that come to your business or do work with you or live next to you or go to school to you sit next to you, all of them have bits. And the worst part about their disease is they're not rolling around on the floor with it. They don't even really know the

01:17:51--> 01:17:58

the outward symptoms are very severe, that they don't see it, but towards the train guy, you see.

01:18:00--> 01:18:24

And if they die with this disease, they will die the most physically painful death of any human beings ever faced. And that is the disease of shirk, worshiping something other than the law that is the disease of being ignorant about Allah Subhana Allah that is disease of Kufa rejecting the loss of kind of what the island that is the worst disease even worse than the one I described about. The brother may have the hypothetical one.

01:18:25--> 01:18:44

Because, number one, it has no real physical outward symptoms that person can notice. And sometimes they may even think that they're healthy, but to the train guy, you can see it you can see this because Allah wakes them up in the morning, after having taken the roof.

01:18:45--> 01:18:49

He puts it back into them, and they wake up. And when they wake up.

01:18:50--> 01:18:55

What do they do? They think someone else, they praise someone else.

01:18:56--> 01:19:12

When they sit down to eat their food, Allah has provided it for them, their food and their drink. And they think someone else Allah has given them air to breathe, he makes their heartbeat without them having to think about it. He has given them the faculties of life,

01:19:13--> 01:19:17

of knowledge of the brain of their everything of their organs.

01:19:18--> 01:19:33

And yet they will go and pray and worship someone else. And on top of that, if there was anything worse on top of that if both of them and ask them. Do you know who Allah is? What would they say?

01:19:34--> 01:19:35

No.

01:19:38--> 01:19:39

That

01:19:40--> 01:19:53

that responds to pain. A Muslim so deep in their heart, it should be like someone stabbing you deep inside your heart for someone to look at you and say I don't know what is what you don't know a lot.

01:19:54--> 01:20:00

The he woke you up this morning, and you don't know him. He fed you this morning and you don't know him. He

01:20:00--> 01:20:14

called you today and you don't know him, he gave you your children, the air you breathe the heart that beats the brain you think with and you don't know him. This is the greatest disease that exists on the earth, you don't know.

01:20:16--> 01:20:16

This

01:20:18--> 01:20:35

is in his hands and and, and if they did if they die with this disease, if they die with this disease, they will die the most physically painful death any human being can face. We know this according to the Atlantic, Hades about also so

01:20:36--> 01:20:59

you can find the portfolio Muslim that when the Angel of Death approaches the disbeliever, what does it do? Number one, it does not approach them nicely, it looks like the most horrible thing they have ever seen. And that Angel will rip their soul out through the nose. And the auto Salah send them said it will feel like their flesh is being torn into shreds of their body.

01:21:00--> 01:21:39

equivalent, like they don't want a pure human paper shredder. That's the death. And that death is so bad, so bad. And it's so painful also. So let's have them sit on the Day of Judgment, the effects of that death will still be apparent on the bill still be hurting from you know, like when you break your leg or something, you get your sore for a few, they will still be sore from that death, on the day of judgment, it will still be on them. Not only that, but these people after they are resurrected, after this point are not willing to step back. Not only that, but after this death, they will be put in the grave. And when their soul returns to their grave.

01:21:40--> 01:21:47

They will be questioned by an angel. And they won't have the answers and that Angel will punish them over and over again. And not only that,

01:21:49--> 01:22:10

when that Angel leaves them, the grave will close in on them. And our Susannah sent him said it would be like so squeezing that the ribs would go like this, they folded on each other. And not only that, but after that a door will open below their feet in the fire of the hill will punish them until the day of judgment.

01:22:11--> 01:22:28

Not only that, when they are resurrected, they will have to stand before Allah knowing the truth about this life and the realities. And not only that, but then Allah will command the angels to drag them on their face, and throw them into the Hellfire to never come on

01:22:30--> 01:22:30

everyone.

01:22:32--> 01:23:01

And the worst part about all of that is I'm afraid that some of those people, even though they will have no excuse because he doesn't print it on his soul. They will have no excuse. But you know how they say misery loves company. I'm afraid some of those people will say, yes, Allah. But those people right over there, lived in my town. Some of them were my neighbors, I saw them every single day of my life. And not a single one of them ever mentioned you to me.

01:23:02--> 01:23:30

Not a single one of them ever mentioned you to me, I'm afraid some of them will find us on the Day of Judgment, say you live next to me your entire life. 1520 years, you knew this was going to happen to me. And you said nothing. You didn't even warn me you didn't even try to mention it to me. I'm going to complain to a lot about you and they have the right to do so they have the right to do so. And Allah will hold us accountable. It will not free them.

01:23:31--> 01:23:59

But it definitely will hold us accountable for this situation. Because we have been given a trust. Allah has entrusted us this Deen of Allah Stan is in a manner it's a trust. And we have to return that trust to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and he has given us this commandment. And and that, that's one of the things that pains me most is I sit in the airport a lot. That's like my second home. I sit in the airport, and I watch people go by.

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

And what really hurts me is

01:24:03--> 01:24:25

I see all of them passing and I see the disease on them. I see it. It's like a stink that comes off from them. And I know that I can't talk to all of them. There's it's not in my capacity, I could not talk to all of them. But I do also know that if I don't talk to them, maybe no one else ever will. And if no one else ever does, they will go to hell. And they will go forever.

01:24:26--> 01:24:33

And the worst part about that is I know that almost every single one of them has encountered a Muslim once in their lifetime.

01:24:34--> 01:24:45

That's the real problem is that if you do the statistics of the world, every single human being on the planet has probably encountered a Muslim at some point in their life.

01:24:47--> 01:24:59

So what are we doing? What are we doing? Are we really, really doing what we're supposed to be doing? Because I guarantee you there's going to be some heartbreaks for us on the Day of Judgment if we continue

01:25:00--> 01:25:23

down this road, we will have some problems because we have that pill, the pill that I didn't give to him live given to all of us to cure them. He has given us the pill to cure them. And it's even easier than taking a pill. La ilaha illa Allah something that's very light on the tongue, and is the heaviest thing that you've ever placed on the scale.

01:25:25--> 01:25:25

So

01:25:26--> 01:26:00

we need to ask ourselves, what are we doing? What are we really doing ourselves? Because this morning, I'm also kind of what Allah has given us for concealing this truth that we will be cursed on in this life, which we are seeing the law on its own. I don't care what you want to call it. But it isn't. It is a punishment Alliance put on this on the status this omens that right now is nothing to me, praise that. If you look at the punishment that Allah is placing, all over this ummah, care what country you look at where their Muslims are, there's something bad happening, if

01:26:01--> 01:26:25

there's something bad happening to them, we need to stop for a second thing, wait a minute, there might be a reason for this. Things that we see are uncontrollable. Like all of these tsunamis and in floods and rainstorms and earthquakes. This weekend, there's only one reason for this, there's only one reason there is no difference of opinion about the fact that this is a loss of kind of weather.

01:26:26--> 01:26:36

The only difference of opinion we can have is water. But I'm pretty sure I know a lot of the reasons it's because a lot of our disobedience to Allah Subhana Allah and our oppression would almost seem to Allah. But anyway,

01:26:38--> 01:26:39

last point we want to discuss

01:26:40--> 01:26:58

is and then I'm going to finish up the title in a nice bowl inshallah. Last point I want to discuss with you today is to whom and what do we call, there's one word that sums it up. And you should know what I've already given to you. What does that word, one word?

01:27:02--> 01:27:06

What are we calling to? What are we calling people to? We're calling people to something What?

01:27:09--> 01:27:19

This is it? This is the one thing we are calling people to alone. Alone, I want you to get that in your mind.

01:27:22--> 01:27:23

Why alone?

01:27:24--> 01:27:37

And I'm going to tell them that if you have $1 booth setup, and the only thing you're telling people is why Muslims were the jab. It's not that

01:27:38--> 01:27:40

you're you have an inflammation

01:27:41--> 01:27:45

and inflammation, but you're disseminating information, you're not doing that.

01:27:46--> 01:28:23

This is what we have to clear up in our minds. If you're having a Dallas seminar, and the only thing that you're trying to tell people is why Muslims do this, and that why do they pray? Why did you only disseminate information? You're not doing that? Because it does not fit within the definition does not fit within the definition. And I'm going to give you a very clear reason why in a moment. First, I gotta give you some of the evidence. We all know this verse 30 of the gender will say, No, don't do that not great men can ingen except for this purpose, that they worship me with copied. Some of the scholars have said that, you know, the Tao heed is the catalyst for the existence of the

01:28:23--> 01:28:28

world, that without talking, nothing else exists. Nothing can exist except with

01:28:31--> 01:28:49

also a loss of power with Allah gives a command in the Quran and sort of to Mohammed farlam and noble a lemon law. So no and have knowledge of the fact that in the Hikmah law that nothing has the right to be giving it back. Except the law. And what does he mean? What does he mean?

01:28:51--> 01:28:54

He just means the oneness of the law. No,

01:28:55--> 01:28:57

it's not it means what does it mean?

01:29:05--> 01:29:45

The best way I can put it in English is tower heat means that you take your worship your event and you single it out for a lot. That's that's tough enough that you take your worship, you take it and you make it solely for Allah, that's tough for you anything that you can consider to be an act of worship, to be an act of gratitude. It has to be singled out for Omar, because this is what time he was for. Because even the Meccans during that this why some of the Muslim I mean, the numbers as we count are even worse than the Mexicans because even the Mexicans even though they had their idolatry, they would say, but we believe in them. They asked if a law says if you ask them who sends

01:29:45--> 01:30:00

down the rain, they'll say a law and the law is telling them so say last night alone single out me then with your evatik It wasn't that oh Susannah sent him was arguing with him to believe in a law he was arguing with him to get

01:30:00--> 01:30:07

Will the rest. That was his argument with them was to get rid of the risks, to worship a law and what avoid

01:30:09--> 01:30:22

everything else, this is something that you think about them, and you give it to them alone. Your Worship is singly for a month. So this is what a law is telling us to do the call people to, to worship Allah alone, nothing else.

01:30:24--> 01:30:48

Also, Allah says, As soon as I had 36, or 6936, and we sent upon every nation, a messenger that means every single people on the face of the planet were given a nation. Yes, probably even Aborigines, probably had a messenger, someone down the line we know they had a messenger, because Allah said so as people, we send a messenger what are the messengers say to them?

01:30:50--> 01:30:51

What does the messenger say to them,

01:30:52--> 01:30:58

worship a loss of final what they're either and avoid the false deities. This is the purpose.

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

Now

01:31:03--> 01:31:12

this is a few points that we're gonna find out why we should call it down along here in another in the next one. This is the very famous hadith of mine in Germany.

01:31:14--> 01:31:19

We know that God was the first emissary to ever be sent out.

01:31:21--> 01:31:22

By the Messenger of Allah Subhana, WA send them

01:31:25--> 01:31:29

Mousavi Romania was one of the very first that he was sent to Medina

01:31:30--> 01:32:02

to set up the Drina for auto setting. But when it came to the download one outside, Marlin Magellan was the first one. And when if you take a look at all of the hobbies that are narrated by more either this discussion with Dr. Seuss or something, you can see he was being prepped for this for this mission. This is one of those where he said I was once writing behind the puppets of the law and sending them on a donkey. And the prophet SAW to send them and turned to me and said, Oh, why do you know what the right of the law upon this lady? And do you know what the right of the slave upon the law is? And of course, my rod said.

01:32:04--> 01:32:41

So they always do a lot of messenger know when he said that the right of the law upon the slave is one, that they worship Him alone and do not associate a partner with him. That's it. And he said that the right of the slave upon the law is that he would not punish them if they did. So. This is this is It is also said I sent him said this is the key that Allah has commanded us to worship Him alone. And that if we knew he won't punish us, that's it. That's all right for Allah. That's our right that Allah gave us the creation, to be able to stand before Allah and say, Look, when you promised me that if I worship you alone, you will not punish me.

01:32:43--> 01:32:46

And we find this headings even though it's not here, so before you even put it there.

01:32:48--> 01:32:52

Now the next Hadeeth is also about the idea but it's narrated by

01:32:54--> 01:33:34

when the prophets of the Lord he was sent him sent more after Yemen, this is the min Hajj of the download of the law. Why do we suddenly know that the minute hundreds of shares or any man or any diet nothing, this is the Dharma of autosource, Allah celemony has meant a hedge as he taught. When he said wives to Yemen, he said you are going to a people from donation from the people of the book, meaning that word, there's one thing about these people they already believe in him. He's so again, it's kind of like he gave a little bit, you know, easy only the beginning you can send it to people they already believe in Allah. So he said, Let the first thing you call them to be what?

01:33:36--> 01:33:49

Tahitian Allah, let the first thing you call them to be Tao, heat and Allah. And then if they accept that, if they accept that, then you command them, that Allah has told them to make.

01:33:50--> 01:34:30

If they accept that, then you command them that Allah has told them to phase again. And if they accept as a candidate, you take the best of them, do not take the best of their properties. So this is the min hatch also said I said him said stick the tough heat until they get if they get it, then you go on to salon. If they get that then when you go on, we start at the end of life, we start talking about the things that Allah has obligated us to do to people who don't believe in Allah. Do you see the craziness behind this? You're telling people what otherwise commanded them to do? When they don't not only do they not believe in Him, they most of them have no idea who he is. So you

01:34:30--> 01:34:33

really beginning in the wrong place.

01:34:34--> 01:34:41

And I'm going to tell you why this is the next part. We're not getting to the types of data. And I'm going to have a chance to

01:34:42--> 01:34:52

this is why we have to focus on I'm going to give you the scenario that if you do anything other than this, wasting attendance, let's say we have that we had a down

01:34:54--> 01:34:54

event

01:34:57--> 01:34:59

and we had 100 months rooms

01:35:01--> 01:35:12

In the event, the only thing that we talked to them about was why Muslims don't eat pork. Why sisters have to wear a hijab? And

01:35:14--> 01:35:38

why about Jihad? What is the Jihad all about? What does it really mean? That's all they want to know. And that's all we give them. Let's say we spent five hours back and forth debating, let's say at the end of those five hours, they all agree with you. They agree with you. And he said, Yep, you're right. We're not going to any more important. If you're right, the woman should come up. Yep. We understand why you had an unnecessary, why you should defend yourself, you know, go happy thinking.

01:35:39--> 01:35:52

And they leave. And they all together and the two of us and they get on that tour bus and they get on the bus. I don't know, a major highway around here. I have no idea. But they get on one of the major highways, and the bus flips over and crashes and burns. They all die.

01:35:53--> 01:35:55

That I save any of them who have I

01:35:56--> 01:35:56

don't

01:35:57--> 01:35:58

know. I'd say

01:36:00--> 01:36:02

let's take those same people and bring them back.

01:36:03--> 01:36:14

Put them down. And we spend 30 minutes or five hours 30 minutes speaking to them about Tahitian Allah alone, and they all say we agree.

01:36:16--> 01:36:27

And because Mohammed is the one taught us this, Muhammad Rasul Allah wa. And that's it. And they leave, they get on the same bus. They go because clips crashes and burns the Honda. Did I say

01:36:28--> 01:37:01

they were true and what they said they all go to gym. And actually, they all go better than us no sin. Do you see the point of why top speed is it that's all we can focus on, because that's the only thing that can save them. That's the only thing that can save them. hijabs not gonna save them. I'm gonna take me the gentlemen, not eating poor, it's not going to take them to gentlemen. None of that is going to take them to paradise, except that in a moment, because as our solar system said that that is the key to gender without the key you don't get in.

01:37:03--> 01:37:37

Now, of course, the next question, I'm sure some of you are thinking, I've done this enough to know the questions. Okay, so how do I always talk about people don't come up and ask, how many of you have ever had somebody come up, say, I want you to tell me about Tommy? Anybody. So you got to get that on film, because that will probably be the first nobody's gonna come and ask you about your heat. Right? They're gonna come and ask you about hijab. porks. Allah, why do you beat your women? What do you have for why is why do you kill non Muslims and all these things? And then come and ask all these crazy things? What do you got to stick below all these things?

01:37:38--> 01:37:48

You know, there's, there is a trick to take any question anyone ever asks you about Islam and turn it to tell with one sentence?

01:37:49--> 01:37:58

One sentence? Did you know there's one sentence that can turn any question you ever have ever given to immediately? caffeine? How?

01:38:02--> 01:38:08

Not the standard? Why do you wear that scarf on your head? That tent?

01:38:10--> 01:38:11

Because I believe in a lot.

01:38:13--> 01:38:17

Because I believe that's the first reason. Why don't you eat pork?

01:38:19--> 01:38:22

Why do you pray mop your head on what he kissed the ground five times a day?

01:38:23--> 01:38:24

Why do you have that beard in your face?

01:38:26--> 01:38:30

Why the Muslims killing innocent people all over the world? Because they don't have correctly?

01:38:33--> 01:38:38

Why does the Muslim beat his wife? Well, if he beats his wife, then he doesn't have Direct Relief on the lawn was gonna punish him.

01:38:40--> 01:39:10

You're gonna see what do you see, there's one thing that every single sentence and what is it? A lot. Because a lot is the reason for everything. He is the lawmaker. So anything we do, the first reason why we do is because Allah has told us to do so or he told us not to do so. Of course, there may be some secondary reasons behind that, which you can get to if you want to. But the primary reason is because we believe in a lot. Because if you think that you can give the reason for everything,

01:39:11--> 01:39:22

then you're only going to confuse yourself. Because people gonna ask you a trick question. Well, then why do you pray seven times a day? I mean, five times a day rather than 7243. What do you say then?

01:39:23--> 01:39:30

If you stick to the first answer I gave you because we believe in a law and he said five. Do you see I'm saying

01:39:31--> 01:39:37

why can a man fly home? Okay, there's logical reasons why, but you're just gonna confuse yourself. But some of us don't even know what

01:39:38--> 01:39:42

some of the people who cried at home like they don't even know why. And that's why they go crazy.

01:39:43--> 01:39:51

But it's because we believe in a lot. Everything that we do as a Muslim has to be based on that belief. And then they then the next natural question is okay.

01:39:54--> 01:40:00

I don't do this or I do this because I believe in the law. Let me tell you a little bit about the law like I discussed in the

01:40:00--> 01:40:04

Getting about the person who asked why do we kill a plastic? Let me take you back to square one.

01:40:05--> 01:40:06

Basic

01:40:07--> 01:40:44

medicine for the brain surgery, let me tell you a little bit about a law. Because if you don't know what law is, you don't believe in a law, none of this other stuff is gonna make any sense anyway. And it's just going to take you farther from the truth. Because if you don't understand the law maker, you're definitely not gonna understand the law itself. So this can always always take people to talk to you. Does that make sense to you? This this, I'm not saying this is the perfect answer. This is just one that really worked for me, because I've always been thinking about that people ask me the craziest questions. And I'm like, man, how? How do I take that and make it the top.

01:40:45--> 01:40:50

One of this Somali guy jumping the window, this Denmark cartoon trying to take him out with x.

01:40:51--> 01:40:52

I'm like, I'm stuck.

01:40:55--> 01:40:58

But now I do not know I do.

01:41:00--> 01:41:10

And it can be done this way. And because this is the point, this is the reason that we are here is to bring people to the tail end of a loss of animal with.

01:41:11--> 01:41:16

This is part of our purpose for existing. And this is what I'm going to finish up with ADD like 1015 minutes,

01:41:18--> 01:41:19

is what I'm going to finish up with.

01:41:25--> 01:41:25

is

01:41:27--> 01:41:29

I want to give you

01:41:30--> 01:41:44

I've given you I think, I think I've given you more than enough evidence for why that was obligatory. I think I've given you more than enough evidence for why we should be doing and then a warning. And I don't I don't really know what else I could say. Other than this.

01:41:46--> 01:41:48

I want to tell you the story of Islam,

01:41:50--> 01:41:50

from

01:41:52--> 01:41:53

the Quran,

01:41:54--> 01:42:08

to the end in two minutes, and tell you the whole story. And what it's all about. What it's all about them are socialists and his whole life. His whole mission as a prophet, the entire Quran, the entire theater, all of it. Two minutes.

01:42:10--> 01:42:13

That's the real semester. Summarize, summarize, summarize, summarize.

01:42:17--> 01:42:24

When our muscles of the body will send them many angels to breathe for the first time. What did you release an empty

01:42:26--> 01:42:46

this mirabito lovely fella, and he introduced himself. I interviewed your prophet. And he told him what was that's all he knew. Right? few verses he knew about was he knew jabril was he know who he was? with that? He left the mountain? And he went to Malaysia.

01:42:47--> 01:42:48

And what did you say to him?

01:42:50--> 01:43:00

mikuni Cover me up. I think I've lost my mind. I've gone crazy. So you said last he was wrapped up? What was the next thing Allah Subhana Allah told him

01:43:05--> 01:43:06

Yeah, you still

01:43:09--> 01:43:18

owe us wrapped up in the mental get up and go once someone once a month oil of a loss of time like that. So it's even though

01:43:20--> 01:43:30

a few verses, he only knew he was a prophet. All he knows. That's it. But Allah is telling him, there's no time for sitting around anymore.

01:43:32--> 01:44:01

And he did that. From the time of that verse, until the time he met Allah subhana wa Tada. And if that's what he did with his entire life, every single moment of his life was spent giving the Dawa to Allah subhana wa to Ireland and even some of the Sahaba say they're sleeping, that he slept, but his heart was always awake. He was always engaged for Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and he did this. Every moment of life. Allah says his forehead he said, really say this is my way

01:44:04--> 01:44:13

to allow Shona Amitabha and even those who are with me, some kind of law or whatnot, I mean, on the speaking and very we are not opposed to worship, other than

01:44:14--> 01:44:21

he did that to the day he left this earth, He fulfilled that command of envy, because it was directly to him.

01:44:23--> 01:44:24

Now,

01:44:25--> 01:44:27

during the last year of his life,

01:44:28--> 01:44:36

he was on his way to Mecca, right? To perform high touch with all the 10s of 1000s of Muslims.

01:44:38--> 01:44:41

And when he was on his way to Mecca Allah review of diversity.

01:44:42--> 01:44:46

What did that verse really reveal to him he was on the way walking

01:44:49--> 01:44:50

before

01:44:51--> 01:44:59

you reveal the first to him or prophet conveyed the message. For if you do not convey my message, you will have not

01:45:00--> 01:45:02

conveyed it all correct.

01:45:03--> 01:45:03

Now

01:45:05--> 01:45:52

he conveys the What if there was something a lie I told him to say. And he told him in this verse that if you don't say that which I have just commanded you to say, You failed as a prophet, that's how a heavy whatever I was also sent him was about the same woods, that if he didn't say it, he has failed his mission entirely. All of his prophethood home on this command. So what are our resources that I sent him to do? He stopped, everyone stopped. And he took some sad saddles of candles and made them into a memo. And he got up on it. And he spoke to his entire own mind for the last time as a whole, and he gave them what the farewell sermon he gave them. What we now know is the farewell

01:45:52--> 01:45:54

sermon is a goodbye message to this.

01:45:56--> 01:46:16

And within that message is the synopsis of Islam. The entire spirit of the whole Deen of Islam is contained within the message. But Allah say you can draw thick rulings for anything you need, based on this message, the generality of the spirit of the message of Islam is in this where he laid down his final model.

01:46:18--> 01:46:23

And between every couple of sentences, what would he say to the people

01:46:24--> 01:46:42

that have I conveyed the message to you? And they say, Yes, we bear witness, you have conveyed the message. But the most important part of this message was the last one, the last sentence, what was the last sentence of the farewell sermon of

01:46:43--> 01:46:47

his last statement to this ummah, as a whole.

01:46:49--> 01:46:50

Those that are here,

01:46:51--> 01:47:39

convey this message on to those that are not here, and then let them convey it on to the next ones. For verily it may be or it is my hope that the last person who hears my message may understand it better than those who are here with me today. And after that, after his last commitment to this home as a whole was to convey the message, he then raised his fingers to the heavens, and said, Oh, Allah, bear witness that I have, indeed convey your message. And it was at this precise moment in time, if you study history, all of this is It was at this exact, precise moment in time that a lot took the verse from nakoma fools from the from the preserved toddler and revealed the source of the

01:47:39--> 01:47:51

last symptom. This day, I have perfected your dean for you, and have completed my favors upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your dean.

01:47:52--> 01:48:07

And that was it, it will see you it was done forever, until the day of judgment. So I hope you see what I'm trying to get out of here. The importance that Islam was initiated with the life of our citizens, and of course, with animals with the life motto, socialism.

01:48:08--> 01:48:29

It was initiated with the command of a law to convey confinement. And it was completed this entire the last message that will ever be given to humanity. The last message that would ever come to the human beings was completed upon the statement of our messenger of a loss of loss and them to convey

01:48:30--> 01:48:46

that's how important what we are doing here today. And the reason why you're here today is, I don't think I can make it any any plainer than that. I think that's, that's, I mean, I can't I can't smooth out the butter on the toast any better for you than that.

01:48:47--> 01:49:09

This is what is the real deal, as they think, is that this is how important it is in our messenger of Allaah. So listen, I'm left us with this. This was his final command to this month to convey this message. And when he did that, guess what? Guess what he did? He made this woman the greatest woman that would ever walk the face of the earth. Because of that.

01:49:10--> 01:49:26

He made this oma the greatest oma to ever walk the face of the earth because of that. Why? Because no other oma before us was ever given this job of conveying the message of Islam, of spreading the disease.

01:49:27--> 01:49:32

How do I know what is my evidence? What is the law same sort of you may know women

01:49:36--> 01:49:37

who fly

01:49:38--> 01:49:39

again

01:49:41--> 01:49:59

What does the law say that they were not commanded other nations anything other than mentors from above? Make the dean feel for him? Pray Salah paisa aka providing a human that was the right way. That's it. No other oma was ever given this job. Their only job was you hold on to the message.

01:50:00--> 01:50:41

Until the next profit comes. That's it. That's all you do. You just keep doing it. You teach your children. That's it. We are the first oma that has ever been handed the torch that only prophets were given us. We're the first oma to ever step in the foot place of prophets. The only one, this is why also the senator said even though we are the last on month on the dangers, but we will be the first because we're the only woman to ever do this to ever take this position. This is why we are that middle nation, we're the only woman to ever become the CO axis for good and evil in the earth. They used to just rested on the hand the profits. And now just in the hands of this coma. And this

01:50:41--> 01:50:53

is why I finished with this Heidi, I finished with this, Heidi, this is why we have the potential to gain more reward than any other woman that's ever existed even as a hava

01:50:54--> 01:51:02

mall reward, I'm going to tell you why there's a very authentic hadith or so. So Boko Haram said, when he was sitting amongst his Sahaba.

01:51:03--> 01:51:29

And he told them, You believe in me, while you've seen me, you believe in me while you've looked at me. But they will come people after you who will believe in me, and they will have never seen me, they would have only heard about me or read about me. And he said that the reward of one of them, of those people is like the reward of 50. And they asked him 50 of us or 50 of them.

01:51:31--> 01:51:49

He said 50 of you, meaning that one of this a lot will be like 50 of your salon in reward. One of the days of fasting in the month of Ramadan will be like 50 of your days, then reward will be multiplied times 50 of your deeds, the greatest nation come from hydrometer.

01:51:51--> 01:52:08

What that means that the opportunity for this nation this us to gain reward is so immense that Only a fool. This is some of the stuff that I've even heard some of the shields have said this, Only a fool living in this lifetime goes to hell.

01:52:09--> 01:52:18

Only a complete idiot in this lifetime goes to him because of the amount of ability that Allah has given us to do good.

01:52:21--> 01:52:37

Why the scholars have given their reasons why our socialism said that this room so great. He said because even though like I said before the Sahaba were the greatest nation, we cannot we cannot take their place as being the greatest nation just because we have the greatest reward doesn't mean we're the greatest people.

01:52:39--> 01:52:56

They are the greatest nation because they built from scratch. But what makes us so great the people whom are Russell, so Sam was referring to, and a lot of others have said that these generations from from the past few generations on into the last generations are in that group or Association someone was talking about

01:52:57--> 01:53:00

is because that these people,

01:53:01--> 01:53:16

we'll be living in a time that was very similar to the time of the Sahaba. Meaning that they will be living in a world where the entire world is against them. The entire world is ignorant of a lot and even is even bent on destroying the religion of Allah subhanaw taala.

01:53:17--> 01:53:58

And they will be striving to defend it just like the Sahaba did. But they will have no prophet to guide them, they will have no one there to run to and ask for guidance, the only thing they will have are the two things that were left for us, which is the Quran, which is the rope of Allah standing from the hand of the Lord into our hands, and the son of a large lesson of some of our send them. And they will be holding on to those to doing what the Sahaba did in the same type of conditions that Sahaba lived in. This is why their reward will be so great. So we live in the best of times. We don't live in the worst of times, we don't. And don't think that it's ever going to get

01:53:58--> 01:54:01

better. How many of you heard that, oh, it's going to get better?

01:54:02--> 01:54:03

How many of you think it's going to get better?

01:54:06--> 01:54:37

I'm going to tell you why it won't get better, because our solar system said it won't. He said that every generation after him will be worse than the last one. And it will only get worse. The only time it will get better is when the real as always sort of send them the the the established Khalifa law returns back to this earth. After that. Until then, it's just going to gradually get worse and worse and worse and worse and worse. So you take advantage while you have because you never know when I was

01:54:38--> 01:55:00

going to take it away. We have been given an opportunity to I mean, look what I've given you today I've given you the best pyramid businesses and the plans that you can gain so much address that's not imagined. That's for everyone. On top of that, you're doing it in a time where the hasta net isn't decreased by 50 of the Sahaba. That means that your good deeds are increased by 50 to 200

01:55:00--> 01:55:09

And everyone else is the ubering. Through the guidance of a law, their deeds are increased by 50 as a habit, and that's all gone in your skin.

01:55:10--> 01:55:20

So as one of my co said that only an idiot, doesn't that goes to him in this time, in this lifetime, Only a fool goes to hell. And I wasn't raised.

01:55:21--> 01:55:27

I don't know if any of you have raised the food, if not, then see me afterwards. And we can get you some counseling in Charlotte to Ireland.

01:55:29--> 01:55:58

But there's no reason for anyone to go to hell in this in this lifetime. There's no reason for us to deny the obligation and to avoid what we have been commanded to do by our loss of control. Because it's just too easy. It's not an easy lifestyle. But it's too you know, how they say easy money is the easy house a nice, easy way to rack up pasta. Not that you can't imagine, in Charlotte, North Carolina. So I hope that all of you have grasped what I said, I hope my

01:55:59--> 01:56:26

because I'm even told by Americans that my accent is garbage. Because I know I learned too many languages, too many Semitic languages, mess up your your throat in your vocal cords. And I live in New York and abundance from South Carolina, and I've lived in California live in the Midwest. So my Maxim is totally trashed. And I travel into the world too much. And I pick up too much of lingo from all over the place. So I mix it all together. So I hope you understood what I was saying. I hope I was clear.

01:56:27--> 01:56:29

But if not, please know that you can

01:56:30--> 01:56:39

catch up with me, I'm going to put the last one, I wish I could take you through all of this kind of level, because we just we just got into that's just the introduction. Nobody ever got anywhere to all of this.

01:56:44--> 01:56:50

This would be the last one I'm just going to leave up there. Which is and I want to show you something really quick.

01:56:53--> 01:56:54

got put in the password here.

01:56:56--> 01:56:57

Hopefully I get it right.

01:57:00--> 01:57:02

So bear with me just two seconds.

01:57:06--> 01:57:07

That's it.

01:57:09--> 01:57:26

This will be the last thing I want to give you since I don't know if I'll ever be back for doing this, this thing. And I know there's a jumping from beginning to the end. But also, like I said, you're not giving down with you're not calling people to tell him. You're not giving down if you don't do this.

01:57:28--> 01:57:30

Finish the sale. What does that mean?

01:57:31--> 01:57:33

You asked people to accept this loan.

01:57:35--> 01:57:45

If you told people about how he'd for 30 minutes, and then you're like, Okay, have a nice day. Did you make that one? No, you gave out information again, gonna stop giving out information.

01:57:46--> 01:57:54

Download means to invite that means you ask them to accept it. There are tips and tricks to do that, but just don't have the time for it. And

01:57:55--> 01:58:05

they're the one I gave you is the one about taking people to compete. But there are ways to the one I like to use is always ask people after you heard what I said,

01:58:06--> 01:58:10

Tell me one thing that would keep you from becoming a Muslim?

01:58:12--> 01:58:19

And if they answer that, I try to answer that for them. And I try if I can keep them I'll keep asking them. Okay, I've answered that. Now tell me another thing.

01:58:21--> 01:58:42

If they can't come up with anything, or if it's just one reason, I'll say so you're just gonna keep one reason you're gonna let just one thing stand up away from you going to paradise forever. That doesn't sound very smart doesn't and so you know, this is ways to do it, but I wish we had the time. But we have to make the invitation and finish the sale. So I really, I really hope that you guys have understood
