Sudan hamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah 30 verses 30 days and today we're looking at verse number 159, from Surah earlier on Allah subhanaw taala says febi modernity mean Allah, He didn't tell him when
he was convenient for them in fact, for whom we're still fiddling with, shall we
say either as an ally in the life motto killing Subhana Allah, this is a beautiful verse. And from this verse, we can take the leadership techniques that Allah subhanaw taala had given to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam had prescribed to the profits of a law abiding citizen, household law tells the profits of the law where it was said, If it weren't for the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada, then you wouldn't have been lenient.
Then he tells them that were you to be hard hearted were you to be cruel than all of the people around you would have left meaning that you wouldn't have had anyone to lead. So now let's take a closer look to figure out what are those techniques that Allah subhanho wa Taala, prescribed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam within this verse, to be a good leader, someone who people would be willing to follow, and not someone who people would disperse from around him. The very first thing is, in the beginning of the verse, verse, Allah Subhana, Allah says, febi Mara, I met him in Allah, if it weren't for the mercy of Allah subhana wa Donna, you wouldn't have been able to be
gentle. So the very first leadership technique that loss of Hannah Montana is mentioning within this verse is that a true leader is a gentle leader. Yes, he's gentle, but at the same time, he also has a resolve as well, that resolve doesn't lead to harshness. And that gentleness doesn't lead to a person being not a person of resolve. So you have to have a resolve. But at the same time, you also have to be gentle, you have to be gentle. But at the same time, you have to have a mission, you have to have a focus, you have to have your vision very clear. When Oakland tafawa, Hollywood, Calvin and fabu mean Holic, then he tells the prophets I said, Look, if you are not gentle, where you do not
have been gentle, you wouldn't have followers, people would not be willing to follow you, they would all disperse from around you.
Now the second technique, fat for whom, forgive them and pardon them.
When you are a leader, you're going to be dealing with all sorts of people. Even if you're a leader in your own family, you're going to be dealing with your children, you're going to be dealing with the people around you, you're going to be dealing with neighbors, you're going to be dealing with all sorts of people, if you're a CEO of a company, or you're a manager in company, you're going to be dealing with your employees, and those people are going to make loads of mistakes. So the first thing that Allah says to the prophet to send them after gentleness, along with the resolve is that be a person of pardon forgive people overlook their mistakes, especially if it happens to be that
odd time that someone made a mistake, don't make a big fuss about it for at home, forgive them, pardon them. Not only that, since you are the person who was the leader or profit in this particular circumstance, then not only do you forgive their mistake, you seek forgiveness for their mistakes as well was total field level and seek forgiveness for their mistakes as well. Why? Because it truly ends up owning up to the mistakes of his followers as well. Because at the end of the day, he should have been
helping them avoid those mistakes. And if they fall into those mistakes, and a true leader in a company in a family says you know what? Yes, my followers made a mistake, but it's my fault that I didn't look into it much so I'm going to do something about it. So when your followers make a mistake, do something about it. That's what a lot tells the profitsystem if they make a mistake was still Fiddler home seek forgiveness for them. And you also pardon that part in them as well.
Then a law continues and he gives us another technique he says wash our home Phil mo and also do shootout with them, consult them.
Not only seek forgiveness for them not only be gentle to them, not only have a resolve but at the same time involve them in the process as well. So they learn how to behave. Well Shall we at home Finn, Mo, for either as an adult can either law the last technique. Now, along with that consultation along with that gentle gentleness, always remember that the final decision is yours because you're the one who's primarily responsible. So he says either as a token of the law, when you've already made your final decision, then do token upon a lot in trust your matter upon a lot and execute based on your resolve. And based on your final decision, along with the fact that you've
involved everyone in the process. You've consulted and you've done Shula, I asked Allah subhana wa tada to allow us to be great leaders within ourselves.
Families within our societies within the greater society as well and allow us to
take these practices that were prescribed by Allah subhana wa tada and these qualities that were prescribed by Allah subhanho wa Taala to the greatest leader that ever lived within this world, our messenger prophets Allah who it was said to him, directly below him for listening was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
