regime yeah you hola Nina. La haka Ducati 111. To Simone papalia Latina, la Hulu Colin sadita you say hola como la como la comme de novo la hora de la casa de Hosanna Lima, Ubud. I want to share with you today, a small story of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and his interaction with a young Sahabi. His interaction with Abdullah even was rude on the lower end who, but this is before the law became Muslim. And in fact, this is the reason why he accepted Islam. If you don't know who Abdullah is, he is one of the greatest of the Sahaba among the top Sahaba right after the Asha and machineable agenda right after the first year of the Sahaba who were promised paradise he is right

00:01:13--> 00:02:02

there. in that category. He was one of the earliest to accept Islam. He was there for all the battles with the prophets of Salaam migrated from Makkah to hamartia. they migrated from Mecca to Medina, Robbie Lamont, who and lived on to be one of the greatest scholars of Islam. In fact, it is the the fifth hanafy in the fifth of Abu hanifa is a is inspired largely by the opinions and by the thinking of the lovingness rhodotorula. One who saw his fingerprints are all over the way we practice Islam. But I want to talk about how he started, how he or the other one who got started with his Islam. he narrates himself what happened in what in the Hadith that's mentioned in the

00:02:02--> 00:02:05

Muslim of Iran, Bahamas and other places. He says good to

00:02:07--> 00:02:42

me, the Navy marine for j and B use of the law while he was working for Amina Machina for call a yahoo.com. In Lebanon fortress Tiana, he mentioned that I was a young men. And I used to be the shepherd for a person by the name of Earth what it meant to be more real. And this, the shepherds would take the flock outside of Makkah to the pastures around the city, many different pastures. And that's where they would graze their sheep, the camel and whatnot.

00:02:45--> 00:03:06

So Abdullah is doing this. And as he's doing this, the prophets also elemental workers to the the step out of Makkah. And they are now in this place where Abdullah is the ask of the prophets are some acts of law? He says, oh, young man, do you have some milk that you can give us for a drink?

00:03:07--> 00:03:51

This is the customs of the Arabs. The customs of the Arabs is that when someone asks you for a drink, you give them a drink. If someone asks you for a meal, you give them a meal. This is the customs of the time it's not a strange request. Even in like some states in America, for example, like in the south, if you go to a restaurant and ask for a glass of water in a hot summer day, they can refuse you a glass of water because it's a it could become a hazard. So it's back in the day particularly wasn't a law but it was customs for the people you give your guests or you give the word who was asking the bare minimum which is a glass of water, a glass of milk. And in fact even in

00:03:51--> 00:03:55

photocopy find the massage table when they went to the town

00:03:56--> 00:04:22

for Alameda, Houma, the town did not host them and give them even a single meal. And that was considered to be extremely unpleasant. These were really really stingy, unpleasant people. And that was how this was the reason why they were considered as such. So this is a very, very standard request from the prophets of Salaam. Can you give us a drink of milk? Abdullah when Miss Ruth replies

00:04:23--> 00:04:45

to an Indian Waterman was to St. Kuma. He says I am entrusted with the sheep and I'm not going to give you a drink. What he's saying is that I don't know if my employer will allow me to give you a glass of milk. The father slumps up to him Hello in the coming Jatin lemons.

00:04:46--> 00:04:58

He says Do you have a sheep or goat that does not give milk its order has dried. Okay, meaning that it doesn't produce it doesn't lactate and give milk

00:05:00--> 00:05:23

Other lessons Yes. And he brings a sheep that does not produce milk meaning it's not that it had milk or right now is having a lien patch it doesn't produce milk at all. Okay and this is the very important part does not produce milk at all for Tanaka hanabusa La La Jolla, Lavasa da da da for half an hour Babu

00:05:25--> 00:05:32

sama sama, vena cava fashion Eva bakunin. From Sharif to

00:05:34--> 00:05:57

la sala. Avila describes he says, The Messenger of Allah saw some Pettit the the neck of the of the goat. And then he headed the other or the other of this goat and made dua. And as he finishes to the other of this goat that does not produce milk, became full of milk.

00:05:59--> 00:06:42

And a worker brought in a container, the profit solem milk this goat and gave the milk to a worker Sadiq who drank then he gave it to Abdullah who drank and then the faucet himself drained from this container. And this was the story. And after this after loading the sewage comes to the porcelain, and he accepted the slab, very, very small glimpse into the life of the prophets of Salaam. But many lessons we can learn from this incident, and I'll share with you just two for the sake of brevity. Lesson number one is the beautiful matters of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and how he would deal with people. And this is important for us, because we don't know we don't see him. We

00:06:42--> 00:06:58

haven't seen him. So we don't know what we're missing out on. This is the only way we can learn by really studying his life, and the small small instances of his interactions with people, that's when we actually get to see what he was like day to day, the loss of them.

00:06:59--> 00:07:44

And that is when we would realize how incredible he was as a person. Here you have the properties of asking for something that is standard practice, can I have a glass of milk or glass of water? And I'm below being a young man denies in that says no, I'm not gonna give it to you. The Prophet is not going to let the confrontation without the law, hey, do you know who I am, I am the son of the Apollo. My grandfather was this and I have Roboto harsher than I am and I am nothing, the officer did not bring out his credentials. You see, to get what he wanted. He didn't regard his credentials to win an argument. He didn't even get into an argument. Because that was the whole of the prophet

00:07:44--> 00:07:45

SAW. That's how he was.

00:07:47--> 00:08:18

That's a very important lesson for us. That we as people who aspire to be like the prophets, or some of them, we have to be people who are easygoing people. It's not always about winning every single conversation that you have. It's not about your credentials at all times. It's not about those things, those things aren't the most important things in life, or people will remember us for our the way we treated them.

00:08:19--> 00:08:41

You see how the prophets have treated the beloved this route, it changed his life. He became a Muslim, and became a Muslim became one of the greatest Muslims of all time. And the way we interview practices lab largely is affected by his understanding. The way we read Quran is transmitted throughout the law.

00:08:42--> 00:09:20

But the change that the the the agent of change was not the prophet SAW his beautiful skills of debate of his amazing ability to convince somebody it was this matters. It was how we dealt with this man. And that's why he became Muslim. Every Converse people that who are new Muslims, and you know, I have the privilege of meeting them, then the honor of meeting them. The vast majority of them accept Islam because the doctor was a Muslim, and they treated them really well. Or their friend was a Muslim, and they found the children really well.

00:09:21--> 00:09:36

And that beautiful treatment is what inspired them to learn about the faith and then accept Islam. That is the first lesson brother sisters, for all of us that take to heart that our character our manners inspire.

00:09:37--> 00:10:00

They have the potential to inspire people, and this is who he was Salaam Salaam and we need to try to be mindful of that and try to rub the heat that the second thing that I'd like to point out is the profit or loss on GM said tr o COVID Islami koufonisia helia is off to the best of you before Islam or the best of you, after they've accepted Islam. If they

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

understood the meaning of there is good qualities of Islam and good qualities that they had before. And they carry them over into Islam that would the Islam would make that good quality, elevated and even better.

00:10:14--> 00:11:06

You see, Abdullah Massoud has, what quality. He had the quality of integrity. He was an honest man, maybe a little bit too honest to the point where he is honest to a fault. He's actually doing something that's against the customs, the people, but he is 100% honest, you could trust this man with your property. You can trust him with what is valuable. And he wouldn't let you down. He would treat people like with like when he said in the motorman. He is treating the prophets as a little behind the back of his employer, as if he will treat the prophet SAW in front of his employer. That's integrity. That's honesty. That's a universal characteristic that is, you know, applaudable.

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

And that's something that we shouldn't aspire to.

00:11:10--> 00:11:42

It's universal, universally liked this characteristic, of being a person of integrity and honesty. And the opposite is universally disliked. Being a cheater, being dishonest, being someone who says one thing and does the other, makes someone who treats people one way in front of them and speaks about them. Another way behind the back. These are universally disliked characteristics. Nobody like this person of the world was really had this. And when he became Muslim, that good became even better.

00:11:43--> 00:12:09

The integrity that he had. You think of that you think of the Prophet Salam. He was called a solid purple. I mean, the truthful, the honest. before he even preached a word of Islam. That was sisters is a lesson for us. The integrity for us is non negotiable. We have to be people of integrity and honesty, full of others my own stuff along the way. Leo saphira in
