Welcome to another episode of the role model, where we are discussing about the best roles that Muhammad peace be upon him has played and how we can take an example from his life in different

00:01:26--> 00:01:27

areas of our lives.

00:01:29--> 00:02:07

In this episode, we shall discuss in this episode we shall discuss about Muhammad peace be born in being the best example, best role model, as a businessman, as a trader. First and foremost, Muhammad peace be upon him, he encouraged business to jar trade, he encouraged a lot said out of 10 nine shades are in America is in business. So the element of burqa is not to be found in the business provided, it is done as per the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:08--> 00:02:59

In the modern days, we are finding that Muslims, although they are engaged in business, but many times unfortunately, we find even among the Muslims and in general, we find the businesses are becoming on the moral and on the immoral grounds, these are moving on the direction which are going against the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We see in the modern day business deceiving people are be deceived by by the business transactions, they promise you something and they deliver you something else. Be aware of this thing people are showing that this is something which is very good

00:03:00--> 00:03:18

to sell to buy, but in reality, that doesn't suit this. So, we see there is lot of deceiving in the business that we are finding these days. Also, we are seeing that people are engaged people are engaged in

00:03:19--> 00:04:08

the illegal transactions. People are engaged in illegal transactions in the lawful dealings primarily on the interest by Allah, if the Muslim truly believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala in particular, he will never ever get into a business which is based which is mixed off interest Riba, how can we think that we will get Baraka blessings in our businesses, if we are involving certain unlawful things, which are commanded by Allah subhanaw taala is strictly prohibited for example, river interest, it is absolutely prohibited in fact,

00:04:10--> 00:04:14

rebar is such a thing. rebar is such an evil act,

00:04:15--> 00:04:50

or involving in Riba is such an evil act, which invites which invites the war with Allah and His Messenger, Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah, Baqarah surah. Number two, that those people who gets involved in interest in interest, let them be ready to wage a war with Allah and His messenger. with Allah and His Messenger, do we have? Do we have the capacity to wage a war with Allah and His messenger?

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

You say no, then how can we ever deal and involve ourselves in the interest

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

dealing in the Riba in the matters of Riba abandon it, this is an evil practice.

00:05:08--> 00:05:40

Also, we find that there is lot of dishonesty in the businesses. And this is the reason that has basically brought a wrong mean, especially about the Muslims, that they are not trustworthy. They are not honest. They're not truthful. Look at the example of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as the best role model for us to follow as a businessman. He was Alhamdulillah, the most truthful and honest businessman.

00:05:41--> 00:06:24

He encouraged and he was a truthful and honest businessman. He never cheats, he never cheats, to any one. He was always honest to the people. He was always truthful, in the matters of his transaction, he would always lead them to a right way. And this was one of the reasons that why Khadija wrote the love Anna, the first wife of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, was so impressed by his commitment, by his dealings by his manners, by his kindness, by his truthfulness by his honesty, in terms of doing business.

00:06:26--> 00:07:24

This is Muhammad, peace be upon him. The role model, as a businessman who always does business, with honesty, and will law, if you do business, with honesty, with with with no involvement of cheating, Allah subhanaw taala is ready to give maximum burqa maximum blessing in your businesses. If you want to expect Baraka from Allah, then you need to fundamentally Be honest in your businesses, Muhammad peace be upon him as a businessman, he was committed, he was committed to his task, if he takes any task used to make sure that he delivers that task in the best possible manner. It was his commitment that also impressed many people. his commitment was par, excellent.

00:07:25--> 00:07:54

Let us take again, in our lives, those people who are involved in businesses and those people who are under the businesses of somebody who are employees, they need to take the lesson that first and foremost, we need to be honest, we need to be honest. Secondly, we need to make sure we need to make sure that we do all these tasks with the commitment.

00:07:55--> 00:08:22

Allah Subhana Allah says, In surah Merida surah, number five is number one, our full bill could fulfill your obligations, fulfill your commitments, your promises, you can promise something and deliver nothing. You can't do that. If you do this, then you know for sure. Understand this in reality, Allah subhanaw taala will never give burqa in your business.

00:08:23--> 00:09:00

Allah subhanho wa Taala he will help you he will support you, He will make you a person who will get Baraka if you are committed, as Muhammad peace be upon him was committed. Muhammad peace be upon him as the role model for the businessman. He never, ever engaged in any unlawful things. He never dealt with the things which are Haram in nature, which are prohibited by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even before Prophethood and after Prophet would

00:09:01--> 00:09:21

assume the loss of Islam he never ever engaged into unlawful things. What we see today, some of the Muslims, even they are involved in the in the businesses of alcohol in the businesses of Riba in the businesses, which are prohibited, essentially, in Islam.

00:09:22--> 00:10:00

How can we get Baraka in our business? No matter you might earn millions of dollars out of your business, which are based on haram things which are based on primary things, but at the end of the day, the element of Baraka, the element of favor from Allah, it will never be there, because you have not chosen to make your business your activities of business on the lawful grounds based on the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We cannot we cannot

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

help ourselves

00:10:03--> 00:10:56

without the help of Allah subhanaw taala. And for us to seek the help of Allah and Allah, we need to follow the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Every businessmen need to understand this, that we have the best example, in the form of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. His life is an excellent example for us to follow, to follow my dear brothers and sisters, as a role model, in terms of business. And in terms of employment, in terms of as an employee, we need to be honest, we need to be committed, we need to be truthful, we need to deliver what we promise, we need always to make sure that we never get involved into lawful things into the things which are prohibited by Allah subhanaw taala, Allah

00:10:56--> 00:11:40

subhanaw taala will never help those people who get into these things. Business is absolutely appreciated in Islam, but the businesses which are based on the unlawful things, the things which are disliked, which are prohibited by Allah subhanaw taala, which are commanded by Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that these things are prohibited. If we are getting into it, we might get great profits, but they will no Baraka in the profits, that profit will go somewhere else it might go in your in providing your sickness and need that might go in the children's sickness that might go somewhere else.

00:11:41--> 00:12:25

Also, it is an important lesson for those who are working under someone that they need to be honest. They need to be truthful. They need to make sure that they fulfill their commitments, they need to make sure that they perform in a better way. They need to make sure that they are not working for something which is wrong, which is unlawful and which is prohibited in Islam. So you see my brothers and sisters, we are not left alone in any matter. Alhamdulillah we have Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as an example, to follow, even in the businesses, even in as the employees we

00:12:26--> 00:13:15

have this opportunity to take this example for us to follow in a practical sense in our lives and get benefited. As the last panel dollar has given Mohammed Islam as an best is the best example for us to follow. As Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Surah number 33. I had number 21 with which we will end this episode. Allah says in the Quran, or the Quran, Allah confy rasulillah he was what has been the best and most influential example. The Perfect example for you to follow is in the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, waka Juana and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:13:39--> 00:13:54

every time when I'm awake, oh thing that I see. I know it's hard to believe but is the almighty

00:13:55--> 00:14:00

fall from the tree every plan that grows

00:14:01--> 00:14:05

when the waves flow in the sea.
