Benefit: The People of Fitnah are Only Industrious in Times of Fitnah
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
The lecturer asks: Where were you before? Where are you works (masjid, websites, publications, seminars, pamphlets etc.), your efforts to spread and defend the Sunnah? Why is it you are only busy when seeking to destroy, never active seeking to build (the daʿwah)?
He encourages the brothers to reflect on the efforts in the UK, so much activity and progress, khayr upon khayr. Don't be from those who only cause hatred and turmoil. People can say what they want to say, however the reality is clear in the progress (of the daʿwah) around the English speaking world. The criticisms and slander do not impede our communities. On the day of judgement, we will meet the slanderers, in shāʾ Allāh, it will be good for us. You (fatān) carry on, and we will carry on in shāʾ Allāh, without any desire for praise or thanks from the people.
