Who brings change?

by the way – the journey to Islam

we say some people take their time coming to Islam

but it’s not any different even after Islam – your progress even after coming into Islam

takes time

it doesn’t happen overnight

there are some Sahaba who go from

absolutely against Islam to completely in Allah’s submission for Islam

and then there are some other companions of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) who struggled

they struggled

it was hard

it wasn’t easy for them

it wasn’t

not every Sahabi was Abu Bakr Siddiq (R.A.)

not everyone was Umar (R.A.) – they weren’t

people were at different levels

why do you think the best generation

the best of all generations

when the Ayat came about alcohol

when the Ayat came about alcohol – they came one time or in stages?

they came in stages

can you imagine – these are the best people – the best believers of all the other generations that will ever come

and the best of all generations

Allah did not impose a drastic change on them

collectively – immediately

He didn’t expect that it would disappear all of a sudden

even though

even though

in the Final Revelation that has to do with [Khamr]

that has to do with alcohol and wine consumption

Allah Azzawajal describes it

as [rijsum min amali ash-Shaitan]

“an abomination – an evil”

“from the work of the Devil”

now I want you to think about this

if alcohol has always been the work of the Devil

even when Allah said

he didn’t say it was haram yet

even then it was evil

even then

even when he said: at least don’t be drunk when you – what?

when you pray

even then it was still the work of – who?

the Devil, but Allah didn’t say it yet

it was too much to handle for some people

so Allah was merciful to the believers

even around the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wasallam)

and He allowed them to develop

to mature

and eventually gave them the final verdict: “this is evil”

“this is an abomination – you need to stop altogether”

what I’m trying to tell you is

nowadays you give Dawah to someone

and you expect them to turn around and turn into a Sahabi

If not a Sahabi (companion) at least a Tabi’ee (follower)

within 24 hours

“bro, I told you it’s haram yesterday, why are you still doing it bro?”

“Astaghfirullah al-Azeem! these people don’t even change man!”

“I already give them Dawah – they didn’t change”

“I already told them – I gave a whole 20 minute Khutbah”

“and look! nothing changed”

man, can you like go read something about Nuh (A.S.) or something dude?

he has a right to say people don’t change

you don’t have a right to say that

and by the way, it is not your words or my words that change people

it is not our words that change people

it is Allah that changes people

I start from here because this talk is supposed to be a balance between Dunya and Akhirah

and the first thing I want to share with you is sometimes in our Dawah

we kill the hopes of people – we expect too much from them too quickly

as a matter of fact – when you give someone Dawah – even as a muslim

who is in disobedience to Allah

a lot of young guys came to me today and said: my friends in college – they drink – Muslim friends

they drink – they do drugs – and they do worse

and I’m trying to give them advice – what do I do?

I don’t know what to do with these guys

they don’t want to come with me to Jummah

they don’t want to come with me to the Masjid

I try to make them watch a YouTube video, they don’t want to hear it

I don’t know what to do with them

And you know what I say?

you just need to be patient with them

and keep giving them a reminder

and don’t give up on them because you don’t know

which of your words are going to be planted inside their heart like a seed

and you don’t know when that seed – Allah will grow it

you don’t know

maybe it’ll happen a year from now that the words you said to them click

maybe it’ll happen 10 years from now – maybe it’ll happen overnight – that is not up to us

which is why in the very same Ayah

when Allah towards the end – in this Ayah of Dawah – what does He tell us?

He tells us: [inna rabbaka huwa alam] – “Allah knows better”
who’s guided and whose misguided
