Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. Who does have the notch agenda and you're listening to the column podcast. Before we get started with today's session, I wanted to share a really amazing resource with you. A question that everyone has a problem that everybody deals with is, how do I focus within my prayer? How do I enjoy my Salah? Well, the answer to that question, the solution to that problem is actually quite straightforward and simple. If we understand what we say within our prayer, we'll be able to focus on it, internalize it, and actually get back to enjoying our conversation with Allah subhanaw taala. We created a solution to make this possible. It's called
meaningful prayer. This is a course a curriculum, a seminar, a workshop that I taught in over 100 locations, all across this country and even in other countries. 10s of 1000s of people have taken this course. And it has really turned around transformed their relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada. Well, now in sha Allah, you can take the meaningful prayer course online, you can take it according to your own schedule, at your own leisure, you can pace yourself, you can go back and review some lessons multiple times, to really be able to internalize them, go to meaningful prayer.com. To sign up, share this resource with others, so that we can get back to not only just
offering our prayers or performing our Salah, but we can go back to experiencing a conversation and relationship with Allah.
Now to get on to today's session in sha Allah, we're going to be covering the Shema in mohammedia, the prophetic personality the following session was recorded at the Sierra intensive
smilla wilhem de la salatu salam ala rasulillah
while he was actually here at marine
shala Today we're going to be studying chapter number 48. From the Shema is mohammedia the prophetic personality
chapter number 48 is Babel my Jaffe, who loci Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The chapter about the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The first Hadeeth Allen was suddenly fu had definite a bad signal Mohammed duty Allah Hadassah Abdullah evening as either locally called
laser blue Saudi. Allah had destiny abroad man alwaleed Noah bill Walid
Angela Malik niharika and hari jetavana j dibny sabot. Color the Helena foreign allies a dibny saboten radi Allahu Allah and who sakala who had this, a hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Bala mother who had

in the very first narration. Before actually I start with the narration, just to explain a little bit about the chapter a little overview about the chapter Bible my geography Hello fi Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the chapter about the mannerisms or the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the word is hook.
So this particular word
bidonville, Hawa Milan, it can also be said be sakuni lamb huli Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but a different word that comes from the same root is referred to as
healthy. Now, they both come from the same roots, who look in holla, or Hulk. However, the difference between the two is that hulak is a word that represents the inner qualities of Seyfarth about the media. As to the facts about the media, it represents the internal qualities of a person
in the realm of patience, mercy, dignity, benevolence, kindness, forgiveness, modesty, so on and so forth. Whereas Hulk refers to a soft avacado, the external the outward character, or the outward qualities, external qualities of a person, the outwardly description of a person.
And there are some just as an overview before we get into the chapter, more specifically, we observe the character of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam in different scenarios and different circumstances and situations but
As an overview, there are some very fascinating Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that tell us about a character and mannerisms in general. There's a beautiful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam found in Sahih Bukhari where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the law, sama, culatta convenor can come across Santa Rosa Kaku
that God has distributed your character amongst you, much as he has distributed your sustenance amongst you. So as there are people and what this is meant to reflect is, as there are people who have different levels of wealth, or different levels of sustenance. Similarly, there are people who have different levels of character,
and the prophets allottee someone's creating a very interesting perspective, here were the prophets, a lot of these sermons teaching us that just as we do comprehend, and we actually quantify and we,
to some extent in at a healthy level rival with one another, and we measure ourselves against the property or the wealth of other people. Similarly, we should also have that same type of perspective that motivation, we should measure one another, we should gauge ourselves when it comes to character as well. That this is not something that just just simply should be dismissed. In another narration that's also an authentic narration, the prophets a lot he said, he talking about this character, the profits a lot he seldom says to a judge, that in Africa hustle attain, you hit boom Allahu, that you have two characteristics, two qualities that God loves very much, and hitting the wall and not that
you are forbearing that you are very patient and thoughtful and well and not again, you are very thoughtful and deliberate in your actions. And the prophets a lot. He seldom teaches us perspective in this regard as well that you know, whenever we find ourselves in a circumstance in a situation where we are very fascinated or we are very enamored with our external characteristics, that it's an opportunity and at that moment, we should really reflect upon what our internal characteristics are like. And that's why authentically narrated the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he would look in the mirror, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will say Allah has center healthy for
Oh Allah, you have beautified you have made excellent my external appearance. So now similarly beautified my internal characteristics.
And in Sahih Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a daughter that he would make in the prayer. Why Dini? The axonal de la de Aqsa Neha illa Anta Allah guide me to have the best of character, because no one guides to the best of character, except for you, Oh Allah.
And of course the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hadith of Mata the prophets a lot. Islam also says Bournemouth to Luton Mima muckety muck o'clock, that I was sent to bring completion to demonstrate the highest levels of noble character
in Chateau de Allahu taala. And her very famously said about the profits a lot he said I'm gonna Hulu, or
that his character was the Koran.
His conduct was in line in, in in sync was was was congruent with the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And of course the Quran itself says about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what Allah Allah who can mean that you are above and beyond the most greatest and noblest of character, why Lama Kemal and Shakuntala and God taught you that what you did not know what kind of login alayka azima and the blessing and the benevolence of your Lord upon you is that is great is is majestic is magnificent.
So, understanding this particular perspective, that there is the outward manifestation, the outward appearance, the outward characteristics and traits and qualities, and then there's that internal capacity that a person has. And that's what's referred to in hidup.
Imam Al ghazali Rahim Allahu taala. When summarizing the concept of Hulk and character, he says that it is the conditioning of the soul from which actions
Then are derived from that actions come from. So, if the conditioning of the soul the internal self is good, that has been conditioned, just think of the outward characteristics. Similarly, if somebody has combed their hair, clean their hair, comb their hair, then it appears very pleasant.
Right But if somebody does not care for it does not wash and clean and comb and brush, then the appearance of the hair is not so pleasant. Similarly, if the conditioning of the self is there, then good character will come from it. And if it's not there, then bad character will come from it.
If Nigerian Allahu taala when commenting on the same issue, he says that a hula Malacca tune of saniya yen shadow on her jammy on a file. It is an internal capacity that gives a person the ability to emit beautiful actions and good actions.
And so, this chapter will basically and the last thing I wanted to mention about this are two things I wanted to mention about this before we go to the first Hadeeth because it's such a fundamental issue and this is such an important topic, that Furthermore, the scholars have teskey and tetapi and they talk about the idea that good character is a to Halle bill.
It is to adorn oneself with noble virtuous traits
and bad luck.
bad character is in good character, excuse me, good characters to adorn oneself with football in with virtuous character and actions and at the hollyanne era. And it is also removed from oneself, bad evil, detrimental characteristics and qualities and traits. And bad character would essentially be the opposite where a person takes on a Halle Berry rather ill a person takes on bad habits. What the Holly and Elphaba and then the person is devoid that person lets good quality slip away from them and they are devoid of good and noble traits and characteristics. Similarly, to kind of summarize the issue
more abou Mohammed bin Zayed Al fayed, Alani
Rahim Allahu taala, a very famous scholar of fifth and Wu, who has also written in the area of purification and character and character. He mentioned something that even Raja Ibrahim Allahu Allah Allah mentions in his book, Jeremy ilumi will come and he says that Juma addable hady What doesn't matter who that a pharaoh and min Urvashi a hadith he says that all good and maintaining good acquiring good in one's life, good qualities, good traits, good characteristics, that all have good qualities and good character and acquiring good character can be summarized within four ahaadeeth four traditions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. These four narrations, the first of them
had number one, which is found in the Sahih Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim Brotherhood, a lot of the Allahu taala and who narrates that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, When Ghana you know be lucky, William will acid failure Iran only as much
that whosoever believes in a law and the last day the day of resurrection, that person should speak good or remain quiet.
Headed number two
is the Hadith found in the book of Timothy. Narrated by Allah saying that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the mean Hosni Islam and Marie Turku, whom Allah Yani that from the beautification,
or from the beautiful, beautiful practice of one's Islam is leaving those things that do not concern a person minding your own business. Number three, the Hadith is found in Buhari, narrated by Abu huraira, the Allahu taala and who that a man and orajel Anatolian enemy Salatu Salam oseni, the man asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam please advise me on messenger of God, give me some very conclusive advice oseni
file a lot of different data mirar on call a lot of them. The Prophet Salafi, some said do not succumb to your anger. When he said give me conclusive advice. He said, Do not succumb to your anger do not give in to your anger. And then you repeated the question and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam repeated once again, that do not give in to your anger
and then the fourth
narration the fourth Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
It's narrated in again the book of Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned he said, narrated by Anasazi Allahu taala. On who la you know, I had to come Hata you hit belly, he made a Boolean FC he that none of you truly believes until he loves his brother, what he loves for himself.
And so these are the four narrations and then commenting on them. Some of the scholars have mentioned that the first Hadees basically teaches us controlling one's tongue.
Watching one speech, becoming mindful of what someone is saying. That's the first step in that purification process, and becoming a person of truly noble character, that you just don't say the first thing that pops into your head, or you don't say the very first thing that just occurs to you. The second narration, advises us and tells us about the aspect of removing frivolous things from our lives, not concerning ourselves with things that do not concern us that have no bearing upon us. cutting down on all the excess within our lives are the things that clutter our minds in our hearts. Number three, is to have control of your emotions in yourself.
We're feeling anger in and of itself. Anger occurring feeling angry about something is not what's problematic. It's giving into that anger and acting on that anger that is problematic. Your mama chef, you're either him Allahu taala very famously said, somebody who never gets angry is not a human's. He's a donkey.
Meaning nothing if nothing ever bothers you, if nothing ever offends you, if nothing ever challenges, your sensibilities, you have no sensibilities you are there for a donkey.
So you will be bothered by something. But when you're bothered by something, then how do you react? You lash out?
Or do you have some semblance of self control.
And then the fourth Hadees, basically talks about that, it really is a reflection of the purity of one's heart, how they treat other people,
and how they deal with other people. So this is kind of a summary of Islam from the advice and the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now let's take a look at the character of the prophets a lot, he somehow it exactly manifested within his life. So this very first narration to just give a basic translation of it, and then we'll talk a little bit we'll talk briefly about it. This is narrated by the son of zeytinburnu sabots, a very great companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He says that a group of people visited zeytinburnu Sabbath. And they said to him that tell us narrate to us really relate to us.
Traditions ahaadeeth some practices from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, what should I narrate to you? What should I relate to you?
And then he said that I was his neighbor, I lived near him. And when divine revelation would descend upon him, then he would call for me, he would send for me, and I would write it for him.
I would transcribe it for him, he would dictate it to me.
And if we were talking something, if we were talking about something pertaining to our lives, our worldly affairs, then he similarly would join into that conversation with us. That's what he would talk about. And if we were talking about the life of the Hereafter, then that's what he would contribute to the conversation. If we were talking about food, then that's what he would contribute to the conversation.
And he says, all of this, I relate to you from the Messenger of God, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Now, to understand this a little bit and to go further into it, first and foremost, when they asked him that relay,
some ahaadeeth to us. And he responds by saying that mother had the focus on what should I relate to you? That's tangible, Metallica, that's a little bit of kind of some shock or dismay, being expressed by zeta Musab is that what do you mean? relate the a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to you? The Hadith of the prophets, a lot of these are more more than can be enumerated, they are more than can be counted. Right that there are I mean, where do I start? Where do I begin? Where do I end? that's a that's a huge task. So he's basically telling them that you need to be more specific. And then he decides to kind of maybe give them a very general overview of the character of
the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he mentioned he says, I was his neighbor. And what that basically refers to is is obvious that he used to live very close, Beatty, audioboom and beta
Now that I live very close to him and what he means to say by that is, therefore, I used to spend a lot of time in the company of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say the blue Sabbath was not only one of the more closer students of the prophets a lot, he said he was not only just one of the more knowledgeable companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam were the prophets allowed a certain set of rod to comb, jadedness habits, that basically he said, the most knowledgeable amongst you about the laws of inheritance is a new Savage. And he was also one of the most knowledgeable about the Quran amongst the companions. So but at the same time, he said, I benefited from his company greatly. I
used to see him every single day. I used to spend time with him, not just in the machine, but even outside the machine because I was his neighbor. And then he says that when he would receive divine revelation, he would send for me and I would write for him. There are and so he was from amongst the individuals who are remembered as kuttabul ye the scribes of divine revelation.
And there were nine of them. There were nine companions who were more regular attendees. They were the people that the prophets a lot of them primarily relied upon, to transcribe divine revelation of the Koran when it was revealed upon him. And zaidan new Sabbath is said to be maybe the most regular amongst them. He was the one who the prophets a lot of them sent for most frequently called for most frequently the other eights are Earth mine I'm not a fan. I leave no, Vitaly, obey, you know, carbon. More, are we even Abby sufian. Khalid bin sorry,
Hans Allah, Rasool Allah insha. Allah Allah even will hug Rami, and abandon serried.
And then lastly, of course, as we mentioned, first and foremost was a dimuth habit. These were the nine people, the nine companions, whom the prophets a lot he said, I'm primarily relied upon to write down the revelation of the Quran as it came upon the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.
So after mentioning this, he then mentions the character of the prophets, Allah Islam, and he mentioned something that's as some of the commentators right fi he deleted On va hironaka madhulika he were hustling Watashi wa T was I teach Allah to fee be as happy sallallahu alayhi wa selama Leah z the Kabbalah whom Allah He was the father to whom Minho
that he then talks about the fact that if we were there, and we were having a conversation with the prophets, a lot of them, or the Prophet sallallahu Sallam entered upon a conversation that we were having. And we were talking about just our, you know, our lives. If we were talking about our families, or we were talking about work, or we were talking about the day, the profits, a lot of them similarly would talk to us, he would also contribute to the conversation by talking about family by talking about work by talking about the day. If we were there having a conversation about
paradise and held the life of the Hereafter, did they have resurrection, then that's what he would contribute to the conversation. That's what he would not just contribute, of course, it's a messenger of a lot. That's what he would then give in the conversation.
That's what he would bless the conversation with. And he said, so much so that he mentioned the last thing that he mentioned, very interesting. And he mentions it deliberately, because it might seem insignificant to us, that if we were talking about food, what did I eat? What did you eat, then that's what he was also blessed the conversation with? What did he eat.
what we understand from this, what we take from this is that the prophets, a lot of them was not one to basically come in, and for lack of a better term, just hijack the conversation,
take over the conversation,
just enter a room and just completely,
you know, just overlook everyone.
And this is a sign somebody's acting or behaving that way, is a sign of somebody being very self absorbed and self involved.
Being just completely impervious to everyone and everything around them.
And also, it shows a lack of empathy. Somebody who would act that way, shows a lack of empathy. Somebody might be sitting there and Okay, they're talking about work. But how do you know that somebody's not just talking about work somewhat, you know, therapeutically, that this is cathartic for the person, maybe they had a very difficult day at work, maybe they're having a lot of difficulty in trouble at work, and they're just trying to find a sympathetic and empathetic ear.
And they're just trying to have a conversation where they can unload some of their concerns, their worries, their hum their hosen
their grief, their sorrow.
And then I walked into the room and I sit down and I just take over the conversation.
That that shows somebody not caring about other people being very self absorbed, self involved. And the profits a lot of the time was not like that. And and allow me to just save this. And I hope it's not misunderstood. I'll try to say it as carefully as I can, if anybody ever had the rights, and if it would be acceptable for anyone to ever just walk into somewhere, and just start talking, regardless of who's there and what they've been talking about, and what's going on with them, if somebody if anyone, was of that position, and if there ever was anyone, that nobody would object to that nobody would mind that they would still, in fact, feel very blessed and very fortunate. It was
the prophets a lot. He said, Oh, can you imagine anyone ever complaining?
Nobody would ever complain. But the prophets a lot, he was not like that.
And if he never did that, and he received received divine revelation, God spoke to him.
He could basically walk into any room anytime, and basically start the conversation with follow Lakota Allah,
who would object who would complain? And if he didn't do that, then where do we get off doing that?
How do we become so self absorbed and self involved?
That having that type of empathy and being considerate of others, and then giving importance to others and respecting other people, valuing other people and what's going on with them? That empathy, that was the greatest character quality of the prophets, allottee. So, and that's what won everyone over.
So this narration shows us something really remarkable. And the last comments, I mentioned him, I will put it to me and some others comment on this. But they basically say that it's actually a sign of spiritual delusion. Somebody is spiritually delusional.
Where if they walk into a room and somebody's sitting there talking about their kids, or they're talking about work, or they're talking about, you know, what they had for dinner, and they kind of walk in and just basically have to start, like some very deep, profound reflective, you know, conversation, not really a conversation, it's a monologue. Right? They have to walk in and start a football basically every single time Alhamdulillah. Right. That's, that's being spiritually delusional.
That there's nothing noteworthy there's nothing praiseworthy, there's nothing good about that. And one of the scholars, the commentators are shuffled wasa is the text on this particular narration says something so powerful. He said he is He that if about numerology, because, well, what about here's a legitimate question, you walk into the room, and they're just talking about what they ate for dinner, or they're talking about what they would like to have for dinner. What are you going to eat? What are you going to eat? Right? Those are usually not the most thought provoking of conversations. All right, once I'm hungry guys just talking about what they want to eat. Right? So.
But if you do actually truly have something blessed, noteworthy beneficial to share with them, do you think they're actually going to listen to you? And they're going to want to listen to you and pay attention to you and engage with you if you walk in and just completely dominant? domineer just a conversation, just completely hijack the conversation? Do you think they're going to really be inclined
to participate and to take part and to be attentive and listen? No, but the profits allow the some of the ultimate wisdom by doing this by being one of them.
By being one of the people. The Prophet says I'm actually increased their attentiveness. And their and their their capacity and their willingness to benefit from the prophets allottee to them, and to truly listen to what he has to say.
So this is the very first narration of this chapter, which kind of gives an overview overall of just how one's character should be that one's character should not be in a way that troubles other people that bothers other people that annoys other people. That that offends other people in minimises people that should not be someone's behavior in someone's conduct.
The next Hadeeth in the chapter number two, Carlin Masami foo, had the Santa is Hakuna moussaka, Hadassah, yuusuke Nobu, Caden and Mohammed igneous How can anzia digna visa that Mohammed evening cabela para de un American Allah us radi Allahu taala and who

Faculty Dr. rasulillah Anna Hayden, our alma sakala faculty, Dr. rasulillah, Anna Hayden earthman forefather earthman.
Fellow massage rasulillah, he Somali Salam fossa, Connie, fellow wedded to Anil amakusa, as to who
to translate very briefly.
I'm gonna be in Alaska, the Allahu taala. And who
he says that the Messenger of God sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would turn his face, and also
turn his speech. And a better translation for that would be that the prophets a lot of the time was very attentive, in terms of, with his face looking at someone, and with his speech by addressing someone, even the worst of the people. He was very attentive physically and verbally, to even the worst of the people. And he would bring them closer through this demeanor through this character. So when he would speak to me, he would look at me and address me directly.
So much so that I started to assume that I must be the best of people, how attentive he is towards me.
So I said, O Messenger of God, am I better or is Abu Bakar? And he said, Abu Bakar
I said, O Messenger of God, am I better or is he said Rama?
I said, O Messenger of God, am I better or is earthman better, he said, earthman.
Whenever I asked the prophets a lot, he said that he was always honest with me. And now I wish that I hadn't asked him anything at all.
So, to explain a little bit of background about this narration, I'm up in Alaska, the Allahu taala, on who was the leader of the Kurdish
and I might have been a la sala de Allahu taala. And who was not only just a leader of a part of the Quran, he was a very staunch opponent of Islam and the prophets, a lot of Islam and the Muslims for a very long time.
He was so vehement in his opposition to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that in the sixth year of Hinduism, there was a treaty called who they be the Treaty of Arabia, at the place of who they be a part of one of the terms of that treaty was that the Muslims were coming that year to perform Umrah. The prophets a lot he said, they were coming to perform on what I wanted the terms of the treaty work was that they would return back they would not proceed on towards Mecca for Ramadan, they would return back home, they would come back a year later, and they would be allowed to do that time. Mecca was still under Quraysh crisis control.
But they would be allowed in peacefully for three days to be able to perform their own rock. That was a term of the treaty signed and agreed to by the Quraysh when the prophets allowed him and the Muslims came in that seventh year of his law, been allowed last was so staunchly opposed. Still to the profits of some, even though now, supposedly, the profits a lot of Muslims were their allies. But he was so strong Slee opposed to this, that he protested the profits a lot. He said, his physical presence in Makkah, by leaving Mecca. He said if Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be in Mecca, I will not be in Mecca. Mecca is not big enough for the both of us.
And he went and waited outside of Mecca. Until the prophets, a lot of them would leave Mecca.
The following year, in the eighth year of his law, he would have a change of heart.
And he would be really just have a moment of honesty, you know, just jehu just be really honest with himself and have a have a moment of truthfulness. And he came to realize that this is just my stubbornness that's getting the best out of me at this point.
And so he realizes his error, and he travels to Medina to go and accept Islam and apologize to the prophets a lot of the time and make amends. When he arrives in Medina, it's a very touching, narration the prophets a lot he suddenly hears about his arrival, and the processor is excited. He's looking forward to welcoming him. And he enters a machine in the profits a lot and welcomes him and he comes in he sits down to accept Islam, and he won't look at the profits. So he's looking down he won't look at him in the face.
And the prophets Allah said, What's wrong? Why don't you look at me and said, O Messenger of God, I'm I'm embarrassed of myself.
I fought you and oppose you for so long.
I'm ashamed of myself in my behavior. And the prophets, a lot of them said there's no need for this embarrassment in Islamic jubu Makana cobla, who Islam removes what was before it Islam wipes the slate clean.
So don't be troubled.
So there's this very beautiful moment, but I'm gonna ask kind of carried that weight for a while.
While they, you know, I have some ground to cover, I have to make up for a lot.
So that kind of weighed heavy on him. And that's why if you look at the narration, he says something you kind of see that there.
He and Ross was an elder statesman, he was known as a very educated, very well traveled, experienced, intelligent person. And that's why the prophets, a lot of them utilized him for very strategic affairs. From the very beginning, as soon as he came into the community, and started to benefit from the time he began the conditioning of the prophets, a lot of these elements mentorship, the process of utilize them for a lot of state related affairs, because he was a very senior statesman, he was very intelligent. And so he's an intelligent person he picked up on this, he says that the Prophet, even the worst of the people, the prophet, so someone would look at them, he would
address them, you would know their names, he would talk to them, no matter who somebody was, the bruxism was not an elitist.
The process of them was not exclusive.
where there were like four people who were the inner circle of the profits a lot a setup, and trying to approach him was like running into a brick wall. That's not what the process was like. The problem was, it wasn't some like elitist, you know, celebrity or politician or something of that sort. Well, I have to be law.
But everyone had access to him. And he himself would approach people and talk to people.
And look at what he says he says he would even look at and address respectfully, very affectionately, even the worst of the people. And that's how he used to speak to me, he was still carrying that burden on the worst of the people. I waged war against the profits of lobbying for 20 years, who can be worse than me.
So he's carrying that wait. And there's another narration that's also found in this a havy, mumble hudy, where, in this narration, he kind of asks, who's better. But that narration is more authentic. In that particular narration. He asks the prophets a lot. And there's actually some background to this as well, a couple of months after accepting Islam, there was an expedition that was going has What do that is the lesson. And the prophets, Allah appointed Ahmed bin allows to be the leader of the group. And he says that when I got that, and in that group are people like Abu Bakar, Roma.
There were such high ranking people in that group. So when I got by the time I got back, I was a little, you know, diluted by that or I was a little enamored by that fact that
have I made that much progress?
Have I climbed so quickly through the ranks, or no ranks to climb through, but you understand that process, that now he sends me in a group with aboubaker denominator and puts me in charge?
So he came back and he says, I asked the prophets a lot, he said, Who amongst the people do you love the most? And in that narration of what he says,
He says, Well, obviously that's your wife. But I don't mean like that. Like amongst the brothers, who is most beloved to you from amongst your companions, your friends.
And he said, abou, her father, Abubakar, and said, Okay, well, that's a given obviously. simmerman then who he said, Omar
said someone who then who? And he said earthmen.
And in some narrations, he said, I asked multiple times, you mentioned other people like Lee and other people. And then finally I said, I should maybe stop asking lest I discover that I'm at the end of the list. So like, he says, over here, the promises have never lied to me. He was very kind and very affection, but he wouldn't lie to me, because he knew he was older. He was senior, he know. He knew. He could basically kind of take a little blunt dosage of the truth. And he said, so every time I asked him, he was very honest with me. But then there was a moment where I kind of regretted asking him.
But again, you kind of see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Shah hid. The reason why he mama Timothy brings this narration in this chapter is for the first part of the narration. And that is that it didn't matter who somebody was, how knew they were to the community, what their position or status or situation was, that the profits a lot of them would physically and verbally be attentive and and kind and gracious and generous to each and every single person. He would look at everyone would address everyone. That was the character of the prophets a lot he set up.
The third narration in the chapter, Berlin was only for two tables, two tables, no sorry, then called a head the third job for a man who he and Tabitha and Anna Sidney Malik and the Allahu taala and who can hire them to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mashallah samina from a colony of Finca to Ramallah colony Shea in Sana to Lima Sana tahu. Well, Alicia interrupts

Walla harridan. What are she and Eliana McAfee Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while a sham to Miskin, Petula a Tarun Khanna, Yabba mini Eros, Eros minara mean Araki Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam,
the translation, and so nomadic or the Allahu taala and who says that I served the Messenger of God sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for 10 years.
And he never said the word to me.
He never expressed
displeasure to me
And he never, he never said about something that I had done. Why did you do this?
nor did he ever say about something I had not done? Why didn't you do it.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, was the best of humanity in character and mannerisms. And he says that I have never touched any silk.
Any garments are any silk, nor anything at all. That was more soft and welcoming than the palm the hand of the profits allottee center.
And he says that I never smelled
any Musk, ever, nor any type of perfume that was more fragrant, than the sweat of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
In this narration, again, to give just a very, a little bit of quick background just so that
everyone's able to understand and exactly appreciate
where this narration is coming from. When the prophets a lot of them arrived in the city of Medina, and the soprano Malika, the Allahu taala, and his mother almost flame, she came to the prophets, a lot of the time, he was 10 years old at the time, very brilliant, child, really intelligent, young boy. And she came to the profits a lot of the time and she said that his father has passed, he's not a very wealthy man, he didn't leave a lot behind.
And so I worry about him sometimes that he might not get all the privileges and all the benefits that a lot of other children have, I might not be able to give to him what exactly what he needs within the absence of his father. So I would like to present him to you or messenger of God, as an assistant, as someone to help you with different tasks and assist you in different you know, in daily tasks. And he then remained the personal assistant of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for the next 10 years until the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away. So that's a little bit of background. So now keep that in mind keeping that in mind, when unecessarily Allahu taala. And who says
something about the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was someone who benefited from the company of the prophets a lot. He said him seven days a week.
You know, 18 hours a day. He was constantly in the company of the prophets, allottee Salah, so he knows what he's talking about. And what he says here is that I served the profits a lot of him for 10 years, and he never said off to me ever. And of course, in the Arabic language widely, we see it in the Quran as well, for that second Lama, often when talking about parents that don't even say off to them. That's the sound of an expression of, you know, displeasure or annoyance or disapproval.
And what he's saying is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he never did that to me.
He never did that to me.
He never verbally reprimanded me.
And he says that whenever I did something I wasn't supposed to do. He never just came down on me. And what he means by that is not that he didn't correct me or teach me anything. This should not be misinterpreted to mean, like not teaching someone or enabling bad behavior, just neglecting the idea of you know, a younger person. Not that but he said he didn't call me out publicly. Like if I did something you didn't say, Hey,
what are you doing? Why are you doing that? That's not how he taught me. And if I didn't do something I was supposed to do. He didn't just call me out and embarrass me and humiliate me in public a.
Why aren't you doing this? That wasn't the character of the prophets a lot a sinner.
And that's why he summarizes by saying that the prophets are loving some of the most beautiful and best the noblest of character.
And then he comments by and before actually, I move on to the second part of the Hadith. There's other narrations, you know, that are that are complimentary to this narration of who I am has a narration from anessa nomadic where again, he's
As I saved the profits a lot a seven for 10 years for my son bunnies Otto, he never said a bad word to me while my butter bunnies but about 10 he never physically struck me. When I interviewed Ronnie, he never like, shook me down. Like never just, you know, verbally just berated me.
When I was happy, he never even made like a bad face at me.
Like he didn't even just, you know, physically express his displeasure with me. Well, I'm a ronneby, amblin fatawa and a trophy for entrepreneur. And he, this is what's even more remarkable. He was a personal assistant of the profits a lot. So he says, nor did this ever occur, that he assigned the task to me.
And then I did not follow through with it.
That he then reprimanded me.
That never even happened for an odd 70 I hadn't. But if somebody else reprimanded me, maybe a family member or more senior companion, then the profits a lot. He's I'm telling you to do this an hour ago.
Even if somebody else reprimanded me. He would interject that Oh, leave him alone.
Leave him alone, without good deal or shame on Canada. If it was meant to be it would have happened an hour ago. That just tells you God didn't destined for it to happen.
In another narration, he says that when I came here, who knew rather he would take under law Who am I shadowfall whatever God decrees is what happens whatever God wills is what happens when Allah who kinda if God would have destined it, it would have occurred. What Oh, shout, Allahu la Cana, if Allah wanted it to be it would have been
just to basically deflect
any anger towards me. He would interject, and he would defend me when I was the one who hadn't done my job. But he would defend me.
And then the in the second part of the narration,
he says that,
what am I supposed to I never touched has another word has if you if you look in the
translation, it kind of mentions that silk cloth, nor pure silk Hadid is pure silk has the reason why I mentioned silk cloth is that they used to have particular garments or robes that people would wear at that time that were not just purely made out of silk, a lot of times what it would be is that it was made out of wool, and then it would have silk trimming on it. So that's what has would refer to. So either way, he's just talking about really nice soft clothing. He says that I never touched any type of silk nor wool, no any type of, you know, very soft clothing that was more softer than the hand of the prophets a lot easier. Now, what exactly does that mean? Some of the scholars
have interpreted it both ways. That one first and foremost, it is an expression basically saying that, that's how gentle and that's how welcoming and that's how embracing the prophets a lot he said, um, was, it just kind of it just welcomed you and He made you immediately comfortable.
And some mentioned that this was part of the more edges of the profits a lot of them because there are some other narrations which talk about the fact that when the profits a lot of a sudden went out into the battlefield, his hand was like iron.
His hand was like iron, when they were digging the trench out.
And they came upon a big old rock a boulder that nobody could break. They went in, they called the profits a lot. He said them yellow Scylla we need some help. And the profits a lot of him was wearing like a shawl. Kind of like as a shirt. He took the shawl off, he took his shirt off, and he got down inside of the trench. And he asked for the tool that they were using the axe or the hammer. And he basically took it and he struck it.
And the narration says that he struck it and it just crumbled into dust.
He obliterated this boulder that like a dozen of us had been hacking away at for a while.
So that was the strength of the prophets. A lot of the some of the famous narration of rucola were this gigantic wrestler who was like twice the size of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He was like he was he was an athlete. He was famous. He was a celebrity for strength. That when he challenged the prophets allowed him to wrestling the Prophet seldom narration actually says he picked them up and threw him down which is what we call body slamming.
He body slammed a man that was like twice his size. So there was that strength. But this was part of some of the scholars mentioned this was part of the Marchesa, the miracle of the prophets a lot. He said that when the need was there, his hand was like iron. He could crush a boulder with his bare hands.
But when he interacted with people, his hand was softer than silk to make them comfortable.
And then he talks about this is also part of again, this is mentioned as well part of the miracle of the prophets a lot. He says that even the sweat of the prophets a lot, he sort of was extremely fragrant. This was part of his miracle. And that's why some of the Mahajan meaning authentically narrated some of the Mahajan momineen, like almost Salama, radi Allahu taala, Anna had collected in a little container, like a little bottle that you would find like a third like perfume and she had collected some of the droplets of sweat of the profits, a lot of them and she said years decades after he passed away, I would open it up and immediately the whole room would become fragrant.
sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So this particular narration in mama Timothy brings it for obvious reason, because it demonstrates the way the prophets along some even treated a minor.
The previous narration talks about how we treated somebody who was an enemy who had joined them he never held the losses passed against him. And this narration demonstrates how the process and would even treat a minor not only just a minor, but how we would treat it subordinate how we treated somebody who worked for him is the process of not requesting him. The president could have told him what to do. He worked for the profits a lot he said them but the profits a lot he's him treating with such dignity and respect. And that's why Mama Mama Timothy brings his particular narration in this chapter about the character of the prophets a lot of them

in this generation and a super nomadic or the Allahu taala and who he narrates from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that there was a man sitting near the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and on his clothing, were the effects the color of saffron.
I understand that the translation here says that yellow colored clothing that is that correct?
I thought it'd be a thorough so frattin basically refers to the fact that that person had saffron that had been rubbed on the person's clothing. That's what the yellow because saffron leaves that yellow stain.
So he had that saffron that had been rubbed on his clothing. And the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it says, Did not
he was not one who would address a person disrespectfully.
So when that person got up and left the prophets, a lot of them said to someone who was sitting there, that if you could please advise him
to not apply this saffron to his clothing that fell on the suffering to his clothing. Now obviously, this probably piques the curiosity of some. So to explain exactly what's the deal with saffron.
There's some other narrations so so there are other narrations as well, that this that that express that communicate to us that this pleasure of the prophets, a lot of them are seeing saffron being rubbed on clothing. Now, many commentators, many scholars have speculated as to why that was. Some have said that because this was part of the Jewish tradition at that time, and that's why the prophets, a lot of them did not like it. Some have said that this was more common amongst the women folk at that time. And that's why the prophets, a lot of them advise the men against it. A lot of this is from speculation.
What we know for a fact is that the prophets a lot of these haven't disliked it, he did not very much approve of it. Some scholars have said that it's Haram. It's impermissible. The vast overwhelming majority of said it is mcru. It is disliked and yet and and when it comes to all the reflections and speculation, what seems to make the most sense, what's some scholars and commentators have mentioned was that for on as it is today, Saffron is extremely expensive.
It's extremely expensive. So rubbing it on one's clothing was even though if somebody was doing it for the fragrance of it, interestingly enough saffron actually
does not own emits a lot of fragrance. It's not the most fragrant thing. But what it primarily has his coloring in it. So the profits a lot he sent him disapproved of it. Why? Because if somebody wanted fragrance, there were other things that they could apply there were a lot more fragrant.
But in the culture, Saffron zaxxon was actually a sign of, you know, what was a sign of extravagance. It was a way to kind of show off, if you had saffron rubbed on your clothing that was like, This person is so wealthy that they can run that they can rub saffron on just their clothing, that this person put saffron on just on his shirt before he went out to work. I was like a sign of like, showing off and boasting about one's wealth. And that was one of the reasons why the profits a lot of them disapproved of it. Because that type of arrogance and that type of boastfulness and showing off of one's wealth, there's no kaidan it, there's no good in it. But he did not say was
completely prohibited, because he met up drachman banner oath, radi Allahu taala, who after he had gotten married,
after basically he had had the wedding, and the walima, the wedding. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam recognized that he he just had the walima because he had saffron rubbed on his shirt.
And the prophet SAW some recognize from that. But he did not prevent him and did not stop him because that was the occasion of his walima. That was his wedding. He said, Okay, that's understandable. But just seeing a person just come to the machine and just randomly having that saffron rubbed on their clothing, the profits all of a sudden did not approve of this. He said this is not good.
This is not good. And so that's why he disapproved of it. Now, the reason why mama Timothy brings this particular notion after you understand that is how the prophets, a lot of them have handled that situation. Because Because you have to understand
the prophets, a lot of them and this is the other thing, you have to be very cognizant of what your places, you have to be very cognizant, you have to be very aware
of how a person feels about you.
That this is the messenger of God sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
that the prophecies have understood that if he was to just call them out right there, this person might just kind of rip his shirt off his first and might just want to like melt and die on the spot. Think about somebody, there's nobody anybody loves more than the prophets, Allah no human being. Anyone ever loves more than the prophet SAW some and there's no human being you respect more than the prophets, Allah vsam. So the most beloved person to you, the person you respect the most, the person you admire the most, the person whose words you had you hang on there every single syllable.
That person, if that person was to kind of call you, I'd be like, why do you have saffron rubbed on your clothing? That's not good. Don't do it.
You'd basically just lie down and ask someone to perform your janazah. Right? Like, that's it, I should just die now. I have no reason to live. Right? I've just, I'm gonna walk out of here and keep walking until I find the cliff and just keep walking. Right? Like just, I mean, just think about it, it just be so demoralizing. It'd be so demoralizing.
So the profits are so sensitive. He understands. Look, I got Abu Bakar Omar earthman. And he,
I got these people who I can just talk to.
And yes, they respect me and love, they respect and love the process more than anyone else. But there's also that relationship that's there.
But this person, maybe it's the first time the prophets, a lot of them was having a personal, more intimate kind of interaction with that in that first conversation. I mean, think about it, somebody you met for the very first time that you admired and loved and respected for a very long time. And your first interaction the person comes tells you Hey, What's your deal? What are you doing?
Don't do this? What do you want?
Right? You just think about how hurtful and how demoralizing, you'd be scarred
the process and was so sensitive, you understood this. And he recognized that there's someone else who's sitting here, who has very close friends with that person appear.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
after that person left, told that person, if you can advise your friend, not to rub saffron on his clothing like that.
You see how benevolent and how generous and kind and gracious, the prophets a lot ism is.
You have to be very careful.
You have to be extremely careful. We have too much of this attitude in our community that somehow you know, if you have something if you if you're trying to teach someone something or you're trying to correct someone, then you're doing them some grand favor.
You're bestowing such a great blessing upon them by advising them and counseling them and correcting them.
that it does not matter the impact that that's going to have on their heart.
Koolhaas what kind of moron Hadith of the Prophet Sosa?
and authentic speak the truth even if he'd be bitter. But I have a question for you. How do you know something's bitter?
you tasted a bitter somebody else bitter to you. Speak the truth even when it's against yourself.
Speak the truth No matter how hard it be for you. Well, Oh ALLAH and fusi como de Quran se Kanako? Amina bill Christie Shahada, Allah Allahu Allah, Allah and fujichrome stand for what's true what's right.

As long as I can add a couple of Arabic words into it.
No insha Allah
you suck, right? Then somehow that makes it all okay. That just made it all okay. All right. So we have to be very careful about this. Look how sensitive the prophets a lot of these elements.

a Chateau de Allahu taala on her.
that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
profanity. He did not use profanity.
nor was he nor did he participate in obscene activities.
Nor did he used to yell in the marketplaces.
Nor would he repel, respond to evil with evil.
Rather, he would forgive
Now, in this narration, there's this basically the some of the commentators on this narration. Remember, Judy and others have mentioned that this demonstrates the great eloquence of our mother, in Chateau de Allahu taala Anna.
And the language that she uses is so powerful and eloquent the first word is fysh. Now to explain further because it said he did not use profanity, nor did he participate in obscene scenes or activities. To better explain that, that was just trying me trying to translate it as summarily as possible. But to explain that what that means is that it was not possible with taba. Like he just was not just such an obscene, rude, you know, profane, crass person, that it was just profanity and obscenity was just something very natural to him. It just rolls off his tongue, as we see very common today, tragically, and unfortunately, when I'm with aphasia, nor did he to colophon. Nor did
he kind of go out of his way to kind of participate or listen or take part in a conversation where there was obscenity or profanity.
So he naturally was not inclined towards it. It didn't just come from naturally, nor did he kind of put himself in those situations. He have meaning Why did he avoid it altogether? He found it so distasteful
that he just avoided it altogether.
And then well as a hobby and Phil as swag. So it mentioned something very specific.
And I want everyone to understand this. This is eloquence again, on the part of eyeshadow, the Allahu taala Anna swap means the marketplaces. Now again, somebody might be thinking, why was somebody yelling inside of a grocery store? Right? why somebody yelling inside of the mall? Right? That sounds strange. Right? Of course, he didn't do that. Right. But if you've ever been to like a flea markets, or if you've been right here, they have the car auction, right? You've been to a place where they're auctioning items and people are yelling, right? Or you've been, you know, some other parts of the world, in the marketplaces where people are yelling, right? There'll be yelling about,
you know, they're selling potatoes for this much. Right and everyone's kind of yelling back and forth and shouting and things like that.
So that's but the profits a lot, some even in the marketplace, he didn't yell, yell and shout and scream,
which means what? The marketplaces were the one place where if you started to yell and scream, you didn't seem completely out of place.
But he wouldn't even do it there. Which means what? Would you ever do it?
In the machine? Would you ever do it at home? Never. So if he would not even be on the marketplaces, forget about anywhere else.
He was always very soft spoken and very dignified in his speech. That's who the profits allottee sumos.
Then it says, Well, I used to be saying it as say, a TA.
That he did not respond to evil with evil.
Now fic wise, this can bring up the question, what about an eye for an eye?
First and foremost, first and foremost,
the vast overwhelming majority of Islamic scholarship do so Leone particularly
clarify and explain to us that even the whole idea of retribution is not to be taken by the individual individuals are not allowed to enact retribution. This must happen under the supervision of the law of the authority. Somebody can't just go and personally take retribution, you have to follow a legal course of action. That is the viewpoint of our football Hmm.
Otherwise, it's called vigilantism.
And that is not permissible in Islam.
But you must follow legal procedures in order to be able to do that.
So, that whole idea i for an eye is not even a question here, but even where
it might, there might be some recourse, the profits allowing some him himself he would not take that recourse. And this is mentioned in sort of the nahan Sutra number 16 at the end of the sutra, way in the October tunefab, they will be listed tomorrow capital V. When Allah addresses the community, he says when you are wrong, then you may seek recourse to that wrong, but I only to the level that you were wronged when
addressing the community, but if you are patient, if you practice patience, level hydrocarbylene then that is better for those who have the capacity to do so. But then after addressing the community a lot directly addresses the profits a lot Hmm, was bit but you Oh Mohammed, you must practice patience was Smith.
Well, ma sobre la bella and your patience is only for the sake of Allah. It is not a sign of weakness. It is not a sign of you know, it is not a lack of justice. But it is for the sake of Allah it is a sacrifice that is made for the greater good.
So that's what's being talked about here but rather the prophecy of someone who he would overlook, why your spa
right which basically means that the profits a lot of him would not mention it. Therefore, we have that expression.
Where we say forgiven forget, like not mentioned it again from an alpha was Lucha for a Jew who Allah Allah, Whosoever forgives, overlooks and then will reconcile, then that person's reward is upon God meaning Allah to Allah will personally reward that person for what they've done. And this was of course, the command to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam within the Quran as well.
And the last narration here
that we'll cover, and we'll leave the rest of the chapter inshallah for the next session.
Calling Masanobu had definite Haruna blue is harp al Hamdani
Kala Hadassah Buddha,
and he shall
be here and I shadow the Allahu taala on her.
Colette modaraba Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obeah de Shea and aku Illa Anuj e the feasibility nahi wa Baba ha de Manuela imra attend.
The translation of this is that the Prophet of Allah the Messenger of Allah, He shadow the Allahu Allah Allah says that the Messenger of Allah ceylonese have never ever struck anything with his hand
ever, except unless he was fighting in the path of God. He was out in the battlefield
nor did he ever strike a servant
nor did he ever strike a woman.
Now, the translation the translation is very, very clear, doesn't require any further elaboration.
But the thing to
Explain here is that
the first part of the narration the promises have never struck anything
Unless, of course he was out in the battlefield.
But then it mentioned specifically servants or woman.
So why is that mentioned specifically? So this is a rhetorical function of the Arabic language, which is called duck season by the tamiment. Vic will have bothered
to mention something specific after having mentioned something general
when you say something very generally, that encompasses everything and then you mentioned something more specifically.
Alright, so, if somebody was to say, may God's peace and blessings wa salatu salam, O Allah Jami, ambia, evil mousseline, Mohammed bin, Mohammed, Abdullah II, write that may God's peace and blessings be upon all the prophets and messengers, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
That's not saying that Mohammed is not a messenger or prophet will either Billa but you mentioned all the messengers and prophets, and then you mentioned the prophets a lot, he said specifically.
So it's a rhetorical function in the Arabic language, you've mentioned everything. And then you mentioned something specific.
Now, the real question is, why do you mentioned something specific? in our context, if I was saying was salatu wa salam O Allah Jamia lamb, it will mousseline God's peace and blessings be upon all the messengers and prophets, especially upon the prophets. allottee. So, Mohammed Salah de ser, why did I mentioned the process of more specifically? Well, there could be a reason, maybe because we're studying the Shema. 11 the prophets a lot of them were studying in a C class, right? There's some relevance to the conversation to the prophets a lot. He said them specifically. And that's why we singled them out by mentioning him.
In this particular context, I shadowed the Allahu taala. And after seeing the process of never struck anyone anything.
She then mentions more specifically, they've never struck a servant nor he struck a woman specifically.
Why? Because at that time, in that social context, pre islamically there was a huge problem that existed at that time.
Were people's servants, people who worked for others, there who dumb their servants were subjected to a lot of physical abuse.
And this was something the Prophet sallallahu Sallam addressed. And he recommended, he saw a man striking the servant in the profits a lot. He said him said, God has more power over you than you think you have over the servants. So you want to strike him, God will smite you.
And then he felt so repentance, remorseful, so messenger of God, how do I make up for this mistake? He said, tollbooth told by two guys who have
that the way you repent is you must free the slave now, and the person freed the slave on the spot.
And similarly, very tragically, and unfortunately pre Islamic Lee women were subject to a lot of physical abuse. And this is a problem even till today. I'm talking about why I mentioned that at that time, because that was a problem. And it's still unfortunately and tragically a problem.
And that's why she mentioned it and this was something also the prophets a lot so I'm address laying Yoruba hero calm,
the good people do not
strike their womenfolk
do not abuse their women.
And the profits a lot he said, um, addresses very seriously.
And so this is why I shout out the Allahu taala Anna mentioned it here specifically, because it was a very serious problem at that time, just like it's a very serious problem today. Now, I do not want to become entangled right now into the whole conversation about 434. Right, so number for a number 30 413 boonah. But I mentioned this much I can give a reference for reading because it I actually do teach a class where I talk about and it takes me about two and a half hours to really break the issue down for everyone. So unless y'all got time I got time but uh the the I've mentioned this much I'll direct everyone to read that the seed of even assured
that the seed of a banana shoe
and in the seed of a banana shoe.
The author explains this particular issue,
that there's no precedence
that there is no situation or circumstance in which a citizen
common person is given physical license to physically
reprimand and physically abuse another person who is a citizen of the state
without an unless and until there is proper legal functions and recourse in place.
I know that might seem a bit cryptic but what it's basically saying is that what the IRS talk I can tell you what the AI is not talking about the IRA is not saying
that a husband has absolute
license licence has carte blanche to be able to physically abuse
his wife, by no means is it saying that because that would be something completely contradictory to everything else, or answers and what the prophets Allah says.
It's speaking about very specific scenarios in which the law and the courts would still be in place to ensure that there was no actual abuse.
that there might be circumstances which dictate physical redress physical reprimand, but abuse would not be tolerated in any circumstance. And there were instances in cases in the time of the prophets, a lot of at the time of the companions, very visibly, very prominently documented, were women who were actually abused,
came to the courts.
And were granted separation from the abusive spouse. And there were circumstances in which the spouse was held accountable in a court of law was lashed, was penalized and was punished for abusing the spouse.
So there's still a lot more that can be said and needs to be addressed about this particular issue. But what everyone needs to take home is this. Domestic Violence is completely unacceptable impermissible haraam from an Islamic perspective, there's absolutely no permissibility no leeway, no allowance in regards to it at all.
And that's all we need to know.
If somebody does want to further research they're more than welcome to and and go and ask and sit with scholars who are well versed on the particular issue. But as far as the general community is concerned, domestic violence is is is impermissible is something that should not be tolerated.
Not within the home and not within the community. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the ability to practice everything that has been said and heard. And may Allah subhanaw taala guide us to what is best, so behind Allah who humbly he Subhana columbium Nick Michel de la ilaha illa Anta nasaka cabana to Lake
