Do you want to be a good father ?Log on to “Free Quran Education“on Youtube
do we take responsibility?
how? okay now I know I have to be responsible, but how do I do it?
how do I do it?
I’m not going to tell you one hundred steps
I just want to tell you one step
when you do one step, then you come back to me…
we’ll have some lunch, and I’ll tell you step 2
but right now, let’s only worry about – what?
when did the Messenger ﷺ become a messenger – at what age?
and at the age of 40, he started doing Dawah (inviting to Islam) – yes?
He started doing Dawah
was he living in Makkah before then?
did people know him before then?
what did they call him?
they used to give him some nice names
what were the nice names they gave him?
[al-saadiq] = [the honest]
[al-ameen] = [the trustworthy]
did he ever talk to them about Islam before the age of 40?
he did business with them
he lived with them
he was neighbors with them
he was friends with them
he ate with them
he talked with them every day
he helped them
he gave charity to them
that’s all they had with him
for 40 years, the only thing they knew was [al-sadiq] and [al-ameen]
and they knew that the most responsible person in our entire city is one person – who is that?
they don’t call him Rasool Allah ﷺ yet
that’s your step 01
your step 01
as an Ummah (nation)
my step 01 as an Ummah
is we have to show the character of Rasool Allah ﷺ
[as-sadiq] and [al-ameen] to the entire world
so when they think of muslims, they think of someone honest
when they think of muslims, they think of someone they can trust
right now it is so bad, we can’t even trust each other
we can’t even trust each other
and we cheat
we lie and we cheat in business
we lie and we cheat in our families
we lie and we cheat in inheritence
we lie and we cheat in our jobs
we lie and we cheat in our tax forms
we lie, we cheat
every chance we get, we lie and we cheat
the guy who is in the store, selling cloth
you know – the ladies – they go to buy clothes
the guy bought it for 10
but he has to make a whole story
so you can get her to buy it for 99
OK.. Ok.. you just take it for 99, it’s OK!
and he makes this whole story
you can’t even sell something without lying
how are we going to earn [sadiq] and [ameen] for the entire world
we don’t even think each other as [sadiq] and [ameen]
we don’t think each other as [sadiq] and [ameen]
you know – when you go in the Muslim world
somewhere – not here – anywhere in the Muslim world
and you get in a taxi
if they can tell I’m American
three times the price
Is that Amanah (honesty)?
Is that Amanah?
you go to a mechanic
Muslim mechanic – Masha’Allah!
he opens your car, takes out the transmission
we’re cheating people
we’re lying to people
we’re dishonest to people
and then we talk about the Deen of Muhammad ﷺ
the Dawah to Islam
the Shariah (law) of Rasool Allah ﷺ
wait a second – hold on – 40 years first
nobody thinks we’re honest right now
nobody thinks we’re trustworthy right now
that is our priority
that is when Dawah actually makes sense to people
because before you even open your mouth
they love you
they love you
this is what a Muslim is supposed to be
so many of your co-workers are Hindu
so many of your co-workers are Christian in this country
so many of your co-workers are Buddhist
or may be even athiest or agnost
the only thing about Islam they know of
is not the Quran – they don’t know the Quran
the only Islam they know is YOU!
you are Islam to them
you are the ambassador of Rasool Allah ﷺ to them
so when you tell your coworker
5 minutes – I know the Sunni (traditional) 5 minutes
5 minutes means = sometime today
and the best one is
you haven’t even left home yet
and they call you
you’re not on the way
you haven’t even brushed your teeth
you’re driving from like another country – you’re driving over 3 hours away
3 hours – you convert them into -you’re not in a helicopter man!
you’re in a car
be honest in these little things
if we can not be honest in little things
then definitely we can not be honest in big things
