Hello,

00:00:42--> 00:00:50

every time when I'm awake, oh thing that I see. I know

00:00:52--> 00:01:11

00:01:12--> 00:01:29

melissani. yahoo. Totally Dear viewers, Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, meaning me the peace, mercy and blessings of Allah the Most I we upon all of you. Welcome to the new program, the role model,

00:01:30--> 00:02:12

we intend to do this program focusing on two groups of people, number one, the Muslims so that we may redefine their role model so that we may reset their standards in selecting the role model so that we may make them understand what are the true criteria for selecting the role model. And the other group of people that we would like to focus to this program is those people who are not yet Muslims, not yet Muslims. So we would like to reintroduce Muhammad peace be upon him as the best role model for all time in totality.

00:02:14--> 00:02:17

Now, why do we need a role model?

00:02:18--> 00:02:45

The question might be asked, why do we need the role model? Well, it is in human nature, that we always tend to follow a role model, a hero, a person who might influence you. It is a part of our nature, that we follow someone whom we admire, whom we love, whom we respect, and we would like to be like them.

00:02:46--> 00:02:52

So it is a part of human nature. Now if we select the right role model,

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

we would be right.

00:02:56--> 00:03:04

Or if we select the wrong role model, we would be wrong. For example, if someone chooses the role model,

00:03:06--> 00:03:37

as a criminal, as a sinner, as a person who is disobedient, as a person who kills people, then he would follow the same. And he would also be a criminal, a killer, a sinner, a person who is disobedient. So it is always important to follow the right role models. Moreover, we tend to follow the role model, because they inspire us, we tend to follow the role models, because they motivate us

00:03:39--> 00:04:33

what should be the criteria for selecting the role model? people in general, they select role models based on their own choices, their interest, their fields, some might select a person who is very successful to be his role model, someone might select a person who is very influential to be his role model, someone might select a person who has done good to them as the role model, someone might select a person who is power excellent in his field. So he selects him to be his role model. But one thing we have to realize and understand is that these role models, these role models cannot be the role model. in totality, they cannot be completely good in all the matters of life. For example, if

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

a person who's a brilliant scientist, he might be very good, excellent in science, but maybe this person is not at all kind and beautiful to his parents. Therefore, he is not the role model in totality. Also, if we take an example of a person who might be a great businessman, a very rich businessman.

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

But he is a person who is absolutely not for the charity, he does not at all help the poor and the needy from his world. So, he cannot be considered as a good role model in totality. Therefore, therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, we need a role model, we need the role model who is complete

00:05:26--> 00:06:23

as well as who should be for all time, because we see the role models keeps on changing in the minds of the people, some some time this person is a role model for the other person and after a year or after 10 years, he changes his role model. Therefore, we need the role model who should be complete, who should have all the good qualities in totality as well as he should be for all time. Therefore, Allah subhana wa Jalla he has helped us in redefining our standards in terms of selecting the role model, the role model number one should be appointed by God. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, in Surah Surah number 33. At number 21 Lakota can Allah can see rasulillah he was rotten Hashanah,

00:06:23--> 00:06:43

the best example for you the best model for you to follow in your life is the life of Muhammad peace be upon him, it is Muhammad peace be upon him who was selected, appointed and designated as the role model for the whole of humanity for those who hope to meet Allah,

00:06:44--> 00:07:25

who hope to meet the last day and who remember Allah a lot. So, the first thing it should be that God Almighty, he appoints a role model and we should follow him. The second thing, this role model, he should guide us in all the areas of life in a practical sense, in a practical sense, he should guide us in all the areas of life, whether it be personal or professional, financial or private, any area of life, he should be able to help us with his practical guidance as an example for us to follow.

00:07:26--> 00:07:44

Also, we need to understand that this role model, he should be for all the time, he should not be keep on changing and therefore, Allah subhanahu wa tada He has sent Muhammad peace be upon him as the role model for the people to follow

00:07:45--> 00:08:40

till the humanity dies, till the last day, Muhammad peace be upon him has been given to us has been sent by Allah subhanaw taala as the role model to follow till the last day. Moreover, the role model, he should be truthful and honest, the role model should be sincere and strong, the role model should be complete and comprehensive. And that is the reason Allah subhanho wa Taala. He has selected and appointed Muhammad peace be upon him as the role model for all time for all the people, as we know that there'll be no prophet, there'll be no messenger, as the role model will be sent after Muhammad peace be upon him. Therefore, Muhammad peace be upon him is considered, is eligible

00:08:41--> 00:09:43

and the only one to be considered as the role model. And we know that Mohammed Al Islam is the benefactor for humanity. He was the one who has helped us to recognize and realize our own existence, Muhammad peace be upon him is the one who brought the truth, Muhammad peace before he was the one who brought the mankind from darkness to light. Muhammad peace be upon him was the one who Cade for all the people who cried for all the people. So that we may be saved, we need to follow the role model who should be like Muhammad peace be upon him, because there was no man there was no man there is no man and there will be no man like Muhammad, peace be upon him. So inshallah, we shall be

00:09:44--> 00:09:50

talking about this role model appointed by God Almighty Who is best

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

into tality and for all time. So in the following episodes, we shall be discussing about this

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

role model, as

00:10:03--> 00:10:05

a person who was best

00:10:07--> 00:10:10

to his wives as the best

00:10:11--> 00:10:16

to his wives in general, Muhammad peace be upon him is the best role model.

00:10:17--> 00:10:44

For all the husbands, for all the husbands, to derive, to take the lessons to be an ideal husband, he must look at the life of Muhammad peace be upon him, who was the best husband, therefore, we'll talk about Muhammad peace be upon him as the best husband, for all the people and for all time, we should also discuss about

00:10:45--> 00:11:45

the role model as a messenger as a die, a caller to Islam, any person who would like to engage himself in the service of Islam, in calling people to Allah subhanaw taala, he must look again, an example, the role model in the life of Muhammad peace be upon him. Therefore, we should discuss about Muhammad peace be upon him being the role model as a die as a caller, as a messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We should also talk about Mohammed Islam as the best role model. In terms of his leadership, he was the best role model as a leader, any person who would like to be performed his life as a leader, be it in the home, be it outside, he should also look at the example of Muhammad's

00:11:45--> 00:11:52

Islam, being the best leader of all time for all people, Muhammad peace be upon him as the role model

00:11:54--> 00:12:20

in terms of an army general, he was the best and the most organized, strategic and merciful, Army General. So, if anyone would like to take an example, would like to perform the role of an army general, as the head of the state as the head of an army, he should look in the life of Muhammad peace be upon him, because he was

00:12:21--> 00:12:26

the best role model as an army general, the role model as

00:12:28--> 00:12:30

a person who was

00:12:32--> 00:12:43

good to the people, especially as a person who was a father, and educator, a person who was a friend and companion,
