His Mission – to recite!
Same verses are recited today! Do we care to
understand them as they are recited?
Can we even recite the way he recited? (with
tajweed!). Or we can’t even read because
we just don’t read it. Don’t have time!
www.understandquran.com
5
His Mission – to teach
He was Mu’allim (teacher). Then who should be
his students? Us!!! Are we not too busy!
In other words, we are saying: O Prophet
(pbuh), you may be Mu’allim but we don’t
have time to be your student (to learn
Qur’an)!
Or is his prophethood was limited to his times
only (i.e., we don’t need to be students)?
www.understandquran.com
6
His Mission – to teach
We have two things with us:
1.
2.
Al-Qur’an - Theory
Sunnah from the Saheb-e-Qur’an (The
man of Al-Qur’an) – Practical
Demonstration as to how to live
according to Al-Qur’an.
www.understandquran.com
7
So our task is… Learn it &
Convey it to a Billion Muslims
َ ُ َ َّ َ َ ْ َ ْ ُ ُ ْ َ
ُ‫رآن َو َع َّل َم ُه‬
‫خيركم من تعلم الق‬
The Best of you is the one who learns the
Qur’an and teaches it (to others)
ُ ْ ُ َ َّ
َ
ُ
‫ِإنما ب ِعثت مع ِلمُا‬
I am sent as a teacher!
www.understandquran.com

So our task is… Learn it &
Convey it to a Billion Muslims
We have to be a part of his mission!
The task is huuuuuuuuge. Almost a billion
Muslims (82% Muslims are non-Arabs) just
don’t understand the Arabic Qur’an.
Translations contain the message but they
are not Al-Qur’an.
All of us need get to be ready to do the job.
www.understandquran.com
9
And the Next Task is…
Convey it To Non-Muslims… Almost 6 Billions!!!!
َُ‫بل ُغوا َعني َول ْو آية‬
ِ
ِ
Convey from me even an Ayah of the Qur'an
[Bukhari].
We don’t even understand it ourselves nor do we
interact with it daily! How can we convey it to
others?
www.understandquran.com

His Mission – to do Tazkiah
Tazkiah: Purfication
Tazkiah is removal of wrong things and infusion
of right things … and that too step by step
(like a farmer)
He purified the lives of Sahabah in all aspects; in
their creed, thinking, morals, dealings,…
www.understandquran.com
11
His Mission – to do Tazkiah
We need to know it first (through ahadeeth and
Seerah)
And do it for ourselves and then on others too
whom we care (with wisdom … ).
www.understandquran.com
12
His Mission – to teach
Hikmah
Hikmah: Sunnah / Understanding of Shariah
Both of these are in Hadith and Seerah.
We need to know it and teach it as well to
others.
www.understandquran.com
13
His Tasks…



Dawah to everyone
Tazkiah of those who accepted him as the
Prophet.
Implementation (of Allah’s commandments) in
individual and collective life.
That should be our mission too, if we
believe in him, if we love him, if we
really follow him, …
www.understandquran.com
14
2. His Rights on us
or
Our Obligations to Him,
pbuh
His Rights on us
Our Obligations to him (pbuh).
َ‫َف َّالذين‬
ِ
So (as for) those who
‫أ‬
ُ
• believe in him and
‫َآمنوا ِب ِه‬

• honor him and
ُ‫ َو َع َّز َُوه‬
• help him, and
• follow the light which
ُ‫ص ُروه‬
َ ‫ َو َن‬
has been sent down
ُ َ َّ َ ُّ ‫َ َّ َ ُ أ‬

)157 ‫أولـ ِئك هم اْلف ِلحو (أعراف‬
successful .
www.understandquran.com
16
To be successful, we need to
do all the 4 !!!
1.
2.
3.
4.
www.understandquran.com
Believe in him : (Accept everything that
he brought)
Honor him: (includes loving him)
Help him: (in his mission)
Follow the light (Al-Qur’an) which has
been sent down with him,
17
The 3rd one: Help him
- Wa-nasaroohu
(plural…Teamwork!)
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
Helping the Prophet pbuh in his mission can not be done
by scattered individuals. It has to be a team
work.
Example: Construction a building! – not possible without
planning, coordination, execution, follow-up, …
Helping the Prophet pbuh is a huuuuge task again.
Can’t be done while each one of us sits in his
home.
www.understandquran.com
18
3. Start now with
time, money, team
So Start with Time…


To know the Prophet pbuh, give time, to
read, to listen…
Example – To Love the Prophet pbuh
– Impossible to love someone without
knowing him ENOUGH.
www.understandquran.com
20
Example – Loving the
Prophet pbuh
َّ
ْ‫النب ُّي َأ ْو َلى ب ْاْلُ ْؤمن َين م ْن َأ ْن ُُفسه ُم‬
ِ ِِ ِ
ِ
ِ ِ
The Prophet is closer to the Believers than their
own selves [33:6].
‫ال يؤمن أحدكم حتى أكون أحب إليه من والده وولده‬
‫والناس أجمعين‬
“No one of you becomes a true believer until I
become more beloved to him than his father,
his children, and all the people”
www.understandquran.com
21
Example – Loving the
Prophet pbuh
Allah knew the love of the Prophet pbuh on his
Ummah and that is why He asked us to love
him.
 The Prophet pbuh was more kind to us than we are
to ourselves
 Our selves (nafoos) call us toward fire, and he pbuh
called us towards Jannah. He showed us the path
to salvation
www.understandquran.com
22
Example – Loving the
Prophet pbuh
The Prophet pbuh said:
“My example is like the example of a person who
kindled fire. When it lighted, moths and insects
around it started falling into the fire. The man tried
(his best) to prevent them, (from falling into the
fire) …”
www.understandquran.com
23
Example – Loving the
Prophet pbuh

When he was alive, he carried the burdens of this
Ummah while the Ummah enjoyed the life:
He said:
“if a true believer dies and leaves behind some
property, it will be for his inheritors (from the
father’s side), and if he leaves behind some debt to
be paid or needy offspring, then they should come
to me as I am the guardian of the deceased.”
www.understandquran.com
24
Example – Loving the
Prophet pbuh


His continuous sacrifice … has a direct link to me
being a Muslim.
He reserved a special accepted prayer for the
Ummah, for us, on the day of judgment.
So if we know about him, we can do what he
wanted us to do.
Therefore start reading books on Seerah and
Ahadeeth!
www.understandquran.com
25
Budget for..



Books (BUILD THE LIBRARY …)
– Qur’an learning
– Hadith collections
– Seerah Collections (small, med, large)
Do it:
– For self
– For others
Dawah work
– Supporting Dawah teams/ workers, etc.)
www.understandquran.com
26
In fact, budget for…



Budget for Money (% of Salary!)
Plan for Time
Make a Team
www.understandquran.com
27
Budget your Time!!!


Without spending time, books won’t help!!!
Prepare a time slot for:
– Family reading
– Organize and attend workshops
– Personal Reading (medium size & Big volumes)
 Big volumes in holidays, weekends
www.understandquran.com
28
And Make a Team…



Organize family sessions (at least 3 minutes
per day… if not, then an hour per week).
Family sessions generally are not regular.
Therefore, have parallel programs of males,
females, and children.
Join dawah teams / organizations and help
yourself by helping them!
www.understandquran.com
29
And follow-up…
Evaluate
Plan
Implement

4. Following the
Prophet pbuh
Following the Prophet pbuh
Following the Prophet is:
 Easy in Non-challenging situations (Relatively)
– The way he slept, he sat, he ate…
 Challenging in Tough Situations of our life:
– Remember 10 stories of Prophet pbuh for 10
such tough situations
– 2 Examples…
www.understandquran.com
32
Following the Prophet pbuh
Example -1 : How he lived with those who
did not let him go according to his plan…
Battle of Uhud – His plan was to defend and not
go out. But a good number persisted to go out.
www.understandquran.com
33
Following the Prophet pbuh
Example -1 : How he lived with those who did
not let him go according to his plan…
After so many casualties in Uhud, he never said
anything to them who wanted to go out.

Following the Prophet pbuh
Thus it is due to mercy from Allah that you deal
with them gently, and had you been rough, hard
hearted, they would certainly have dispersed
from around you; pardon them therefore and
ask pardon for them, and take counsel with
them in the affair; so when you have decided,
then place your trust in Allah; surely Allah loves
those who trust. [3:159]
How many times do we follow this example!
www.understandquran.com
35
Following the Prophet pbuh
Example -2 : How he lived with those who did not
let him go according to his plan…
The captives of Banu Qaynuqaa’ and Abdullah bin
Ubi’s role in releasing the captives.
When it comes to living with “hypocrites”, how do
we interact with them? Give them names?
Insult them? Ask Allah to kill them?
www.understandquran.com
36
Following the Prophet pbuh
Similarly, do I remember an example from his life:
– When I am angry (how many times I did that last
week?)
– When confronted with false allegations…
– When faced with death or sickness…
–…
Evaluate these aspects in terms of how I did
in the past week!!! Not just keeping them
separate from my real life.
www.understandquran.com
37
5. Workshops and
Projects
Hold Workshops on Seerah
Just listening one speech after the other is not
enough!
 Have Learning sessions followed by quizes,
workbooks, activities…
 Prepare proper handouts, statistics, timelines, FAQ
about seerah, one-minute presentation practice on
FAQ, …
In brief, make sure that the audience learns…

www.understandquran.com
39

www.understandquran.com
43
Projects on Prophet pbuh
As an Ummah, we have
 Highly competent in profession, creative in their
plans, aggressive in their growth
 But Extremely ‘poor’, sloppy, sluggish, ‘innocent’,
‘simpletons’ when it comes to Islamic work. Why?
– Perhaps the true answer is ‘We just don’t care!’.
 PLEASE……
LET US DO SOMETHING!
