We come to the third subcategory

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

of the role of a Muslim and non Muslim society that is dealing with non Muslims. And that third subcategory is our

00:00:15--> 00:00:17

What is the meaning of the Arabic word our

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

those who come from the Indian subcontinent.

00:00:24--> 00:00:25

They know the meaning of the word Davos.

00:00:27--> 00:00:31

The moment you hear the word Davos, you start thinking of a biryani, or a plow

00:00:33--> 00:00:40

da via data does not mean Biryani. opala. dava means to call to invite

00:00:41--> 00:01:18

and an invitation can only be given to an outsider. So dava specifically means inviting a non Muslim towards Islam. When you speak about Islam to a Muslim, the more appropriate word is Islam, which means to repair which means to improve. But when we speak about Islam to non Muslim inviting him towards Islam, the more appropriate word is Dawa. Though this word dava is used synonymously both my speaking to Muslim as well as non Muslims. But specifically Dawa means inviting the non Muslims towards Islam.

00:01:19--> 00:01:28

And this Dawa is a fourth and every Muslim especially those Muslims who are living in a non Muslim society.

00:01:30--> 00:01:48

I started my talk by quoting a verse from the Quran from Surah lm Ron chapter number three was 110. Well, last month, Allah says kuntum Cara Amata Nikita Atlanta's only Muslims, he are the best of people it was for mankind.

00:01:49--> 00:01:53

Allah has given us an honor and calling us among the best of people.

00:01:55--> 00:02:02

Whenever there is honor, it is always followed up with responsibility. There is no honor without responsibility.

00:02:03--> 00:02:04

For example,

00:02:05--> 00:02:10

in a school, the principle has got more honor than a teacher.

00:02:11--> 00:02:14

A teacher has got more honor than a clerk.

00:02:15--> 00:03:02

But simultaneously, the principal has got more responsibility than a teacher. A teacher has got more responsibility than a clerk. There is no honor without responsibility. Allah has given us an honor in the Quran as calling us the Hydra among Muslims. He had the best of peoples of all for mankind. Don't you think we have responsibility? The reply is given in the same words Allah continues and says morona Bill maruf town animal care but una bella because we enjoy what is good and we forbid what is wrong. And we believe in Allah. If we do not enjoy what is good, and if we do not forbid what is wrong, we aren't fit to be called as Hydra oma. We are unfit to be called as Muslims. It is

00:03:02--> 00:03:06

compulsory for every Muslim, that invites

00:03:08--> 00:03:13

non Muslims he invites them towards the good and forbids them from going wrong and believe in Allah.

00:03:15--> 00:03:18

Allah says in the Quran, in Surah, Muhammad,

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

chap number 47

00:03:22--> 00:03:32

was limited. That if you do not do your job, if you do not for the responsive they are less giving you Allah says

00:03:33--> 00:03:49

Allah, just double common Garam Allah will substitute in a place and other people so malacanang Salah, and they will not be like you. If you do not do your job. If you do not follow the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah will substitute in your place and other people and they will not be like you.

00:03:51--> 00:04:07

Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was the 143 that we have made you and Matt have asked a middlemost community so that you may be a witness ordinations, as the prophet will be a witness or you
