How to be a Dai (Caller to Islam) ? | Subtitled

Nots

ًWhat do Muslims say in their prayer ?Log on to “Free Quran Education “on Youtube.

Script

what is the role of a caller to Islam and how can women fulfill that role?

our religion

we – our job is not to be a caller to Islam

our job is to be a Muslim

Ibrahim (a.s.) gave us this religion
the name of this religion

and he said:

“O Lord, make us both Muslims and make our descendants a nation that …..”

he didn’t say “a nation of callers to Islam”
he said “a nation of Muslims”

our role is to be a Muslim

never lose that title

this is the title that we are proud of

everything else is a piece of this one tree

everything else is the fruit of this one tree

your job in life is not to be a Dai

your job in life is to be a Muslim

now as a Muslim, you have lots of responsibilities

some responsibilities, you absolutely have to fulfill every single day

as a parent, I have responsibilities to my child

I have responsibilities to my parents

I have responsibilities to Allah for prayer

I have responsibilities of earning

I have these responsibilities every day

and I have to fulfill them

and I have to try to do justice to all of them

for men

you have to give time to your wife

sorry

you have to give time to your children

you have to give time to your parents

you have to give time to Allah’s House, the mosque

you have to give time to your job

you have to give time to your health

you have to give time to your learning

you have to give time to your friends

oh my God! I ran out of time!

you have to give time to your rest

yes or no?

you have to give time to relax

you need it

you could chill out and just do nothing

or do something stupid

you need time for that too

you need time for these things and you need to balance all of those things

and by the way, in the middle of all of that

you should make time to represent the religion of Allah as best you can

now

does that mean you have to go on the street and do Dawah?

if you have time, it’s a nice thing to do

but if you don’t have time, you are not missing an obligation

you are not missing an obligation

Allah did not tell every single Muslim to go out and do Dawah

Allah Almighty made that the responsibility of a nation

and by the way, when you find that balance between all of those things

man, that is the greatest Dawah you will ever ever do

because the world is out of balance

nobody knows how to balance their life

people do good in the career, and they destroy their family

people take care of their family, they destroy their business

people take care of their children – ruin their marriage

people take care of their parents -forget about their kids

people take care of their kids – forget about their parents

all these imbalances

who is supposed to represent balance? this Muslim

and when you have balance, people will say:

“hey hey! where did you get this balance from? it’s so nice”

“well, it is from Islam”

people will be attracted to this balance

instead of giving people lectures about balance – live it

be it

people should want to be like you

that’s what we – you know – that’s a real obligation today

I’ll tell you the extreme that’s happening – I find it very disturbing

people want to study Quran

people want to study Hadith

and they want to study it eight hours a day

if you’re studying that eight hours a day

your husband or your wife is not getting time from you

your children are not getting time from you

you’re not doing proper exercise

you’re probably not eating healthy either

you’re not making- you’re not keeping connections with your relationships

Allah does not want you to study the Quran and forget about your life

this is not a service to Islam

this is imbalance

this is what the Quran came to correct

how can you sit there reading Quran

and read: [Qul seeroo fee al-ard]
(Quran 29:20)

what does [seeroo fee al-ard] mean?
“go out in the land”

and your’re reading Tafsir Ibn Kathir
what did He say?
[travel through the Earth]

Tafsir al-Qurtubi
[travel through the Earth]

you know – “so-and-so said”

how about “what did Allah say?”
“TRAVEL THROUGH THE EARTH”

[go take a walk]

[go outside]

Allah is telling you – you know – go travel, it’ll increase your faith

it will affect you

the book pushes you to go – stop reading – sometimes

and go experience

the best of explanation of [awalam yaraw ila al-ttayri fawqahum saffatin wayaqbidna] Quran (67:19)

is not in a book – the best explanation is where?

in the sky – go look

that’s the explanation of that verse
you
