I mean, All praise is due to Allah and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon Prophet Isa, Prophet Jesus, Prophet Moses and upon all of the prophets and all of the messages that were sent to mankind after the revelation

00:00:35--> 00:01:37

to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after he received the revelation at the age of 40. In the Cave of Hira Jabu, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned to Mecca. And in Mecca, he is not given a warm welcome. He's actually ridiculed. He is mocked, and he is given many names. They refer to him as a liar. They refer to him as a plagiarize or they refer to him as a madman. as a as a person who has been possessed by an evil demon. They refer to him as a soothsayer, as a sorcerer, as a magician, as a poet and Allah subhanho wa Taala. In his very book, The Quran, addresses all of those titles and please him of all of those titles. Yet, these absurd titles never

00:01:37--> 00:01:41

reshaped his impeccable manners.

00:01:42--> 00:02:13

When the courageous people of Mecca so that the number of people converting to Islam was increasing. They wanted to negotiate with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, maybe if you worship our Lord for one year, and we will worship your Lord for one year, but then Allah subhanahu wa taala revealed only a few curfew rune law boom, ah, boom, voila. And tomorrow I'll be doing an output.

00:02:15--> 00:02:35

Oh, disbelievers. I will not worship what you worship, nor shall you worship what I worship, there is no compromise. So what did they do? They sent a man by the name of Atiba wrote by Eben Arabia, he went and he sat beside the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:36--> 00:02:38

And he said to the Prophet,

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

you know, you're standing among us,

00:02:43--> 00:03:26

you, but you have brought a matter of grave concern to the people. You have divided that community, you have made fun of the customs, you have criticized the gods and their religion and you've declared some of the ancestors to be unbelievers. Now listen to me. I'm going to make a proposal for you to examine and perhaps you will accept some of them. Now, after listening to this introduction, what do you think the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the chosen one al Mustafa said to this man, did he say to him, Hey, get out of here, man.

00:03:27--> 00:03:30

You know who you're talking to? You're talking to the Prophet of Allah here.

00:03:31--> 00:03:52

He actually he said to him, he was very simple man, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said speak or bullied. He he addressed him as a bullied, which is a very beautiful way respectful way of addressing other people speak up. And Waleed, I'm listening to you.

00:03:54--> 00:03:58

So he continued, he said, What is it that you want?

00:04:00--> 00:04:11

Do you want money? If if it's money that you are after, we will collect some money for you and we will make you the most wealthiest man in Mecca? What is it that you are after?

00:04:12--> 00:04:31

If you want to honor we will make you our chief so that every decision is yours. Do you want the kingdom we will make you a king? What do you want? Are you possessed by the jinn? If you are possessed by the jinn, we will employ the most skillful of doctors to treat you.

00:04:33--> 00:04:45

So when Robert had finished the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam with all simplicity, he turned to him and he said, Have you finished a bull Walid?

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

Are you done?

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

And he said to him, yes, he said, Now listen to me.

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

And he read to him, some verses from a surah from a chapter from the Quran called Seurat facilite

00:05:00--> 00:05:06

When he heard these penetrating verses that penetrated his heart that permeated his soul,

00:05:08--> 00:05:42

he went back to his people and his people looked at him. And they saw that he had come back with a different expression on his face to the one that he left with. He says, what law he by a law, I have heard words the like of which I have never heard before. What law he It is neither poetry. It is not magic, and it is not soothsaying. He says, oh, men of Porsche, own men of Porsche, leave this man alone.

00:05:43--> 00:05:53

Be considerate towards him and don't interfere. They said, well, law, he has bewitched you. He has bewitched you with his tongue, Abu Walid

00:05:54--> 00:06:17

prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He kept good relations with everybody that was around him irrespective of their status. After his encounter with gibreel, in the cave of Hira, he came back to his loving wife Heidi had been to Hawaii. May Allah subhanahu wa taala be pleased with her.

00:06:18--> 00:06:28

And he is very frightened. He's very scared and he says to his Emmylou, Nisa Milani Cover me up, cover me up.

00:06:29--> 00:06:40

And then she gives him comforting words which showed the reality of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. She said, Allah will never disgrace you, what are you worried about?

00:06:41--> 00:06:55

You keep good relations. You keep good relations with your relatives. You help the poor and the destitute. And you serve your guests generously and you assist those afflicted by calamity.

00:06:57--> 00:07:19

Allah subhanho wa Taala God Almighty, praised the good character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one of the 6236 verses that were revealed to him. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We're not gonna Allah Who knows

00:07:22--> 00:07:29

what in Allah, Allah who can have him and you and indeed you are of a great moral character.

00:07:31--> 00:07:32

His wife

00:07:34--> 00:07:48

was once asked about the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam summarize his character, Allah Isha, you are his beloved wife, tell us about his character, his manners.

00:07:49--> 00:08:00

She said, Ghana Hola, como por and his character was the Quran. He was a walking talking for an

00:08:01--> 00:08:07

interview words, he embodied all of the beautiful teachings of the Quran.

00:08:09--> 00:08:58

For example, the Quran says worku Lena see husana and speak to people good words. So you find the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying the most beautiful of phrases and sentences to the people around him. The Quran says what Allah who you have seen in Allah loves those people who do good. So you find the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam displaying kindness to people from all walks of life, whether they were, whether they were old, whether they were young, whether they were male, whether we're female, Arab, non Arab. He was the first to fulfill the commands of Allah. He was the first to refrain from the prohibitionists of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the Prophet sallallahu

00:08:58--> 00:09:03

alayhi wasallam didn't just talk the talk, but he walked the walk.

00:09:05--> 00:09:08

He was a bouquets of beautiful menace.

00:09:11--> 00:09:28

He had a servant by the name of ns, Eben Malik. And as Eben Malik, his mother gave him to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam to serve him. So he would see much of the characteristics of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:09:29--> 00:09:43

He said, I served the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for 10 years. For 10 years I served him and in 10 years, he said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he never said

00:09:45--> 00:09:50

to me, he didn't say why did you do this? Why didn't you do that?

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he faced many challenges. He

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

faced much persecution and ridicule at the hands of those who opposed him.

00:10:07--> 00:10:31

Whilst he's praying in front of the cabinet, the placenta of a camel the guts, the intestines of the camel are placed on his back. One day he is walking with Anna Eben Malik. He is working with Anna's Eben Malik and Abed one grabs the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam violently by the color of his shirt,

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

leaving a mark in his neck.

00:10:35--> 00:10:49

And he says to him, give me from the wealth that Allah has given you. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he turns to him, and he smiles. And he says to the people, give him give him something.

00:10:51--> 00:10:55

In the Hadith that we read in Sahaja,

00:10:57--> 00:11:23

Isha, she asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, was there ever a trialing moment in your life, a more difficult moment in your life than that, which is enjoyed during the Bachelor of offered. The Battle of offer took place in the third year of the migration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, from Mecca to Medina.

00:11:24--> 00:11:36

It is the second battle of Islam. And during this battle, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who walked the walk was fighting the disbelievers himself.

00:11:37--> 00:12:01

And during this battle, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was wounded. He was wearing a helmet that was made out of rings. And two of these rings, they popped and they pierced his temples sallallahu alayhi wasallam his lip was bleeding. One of his teeth, one of his teeth was broken.

00:12:03--> 00:12:32

So it was a very hard moment for him. So I Isha is asking him, was there ever a moment in in your life that was more difficult than that moment? Listen to what he says to her. Yes, there was. There was the time when my people in Mecca had ridiculed me and mocked me and we were facing persecution. And so I went in search for a place, a safe haven a place for our people to migrate to.

00:12:34--> 00:12:43

And so he went to a place almost 100 kilometers away from Mecca to a place called bar if he went to a place called thought.

00:12:45--> 00:13:29

And the way that the people have thought, if welcomed him is by sending their children and the fools out to pelt him with stones. And so he was wounded and he was injured and he left. Can you imagine? Can you imagine how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam how down how disheartened How sad he is? And so he walks some 30 kilometers. It is said, You know, sometimes when you're depressed when you're down, and you just go for a drive and Allah Akbar, you've already driven 100 kilometers. You already in another state. You're not thinking the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he walks 30 kilometers to a place called

00:13:31--> 00:14:11

karma salad and he sits there. And who appears before him, the Angel jabril the one who brings down the revelation to him. Angel jabril comes and with him is another an angel that he's introduced to he is the angel of the mountains. He said this is the angel of the mountains. And so before even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam began to speak. The Angel of the mountains started to make some proposition some proposals. He said, Look, if you want, there are these two mountains that Mecca is encircled by If you want, I will bring them down crushing these people.

00:14:13--> 00:14:32

What do you think the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was a fountain of sublime manners said to the angel of the mountains. He said, I pray that Allah will bring about from their offspring, people who will worship Allah alone and ascribe no partners to him.

00:14:33--> 00:14:41

And that is exactly what has happened today. All of our if all of the people have thought if are Muslims.

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

He was a fountain of sublime madness.

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

In Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, we are introduced to a man by the name of Thumma Eben ofan sumana Eben OSA

00:15:01--> 00:15:11

He was one of the most powerful Arab rulers before the revelation. He was one of the rulers of a nearby city or area called Alia man.

00:15:13--> 00:15:42

And he was one of the rulers that received a special invitation from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to enter Islam. But he refused to listen to the invitation of truth. And goodness, more than that, he felt a strong desire to go and kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and for the mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be buried with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:15:44--> 00:15:57

And in his pursuit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he met and he killed a group of the Sahaba a group of the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:15:58--> 00:16:49

and on his way to Mecca one day, to perform Umrah to perform power, to circumambulate to circle to encircle the Kaaba that has an idol for every day of the year. He is captured. He is captured by the Sahaba. He is captured by the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taken to the masjid and number one, he's taken to the mosque to the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he is wrapped or tied to a column of the Prophet's mosque. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is informed that Summa that Summa Eben ozanne has been captured. So what does the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do before even addressing him before even speaking to him?

00:16:50--> 00:16:59

He arranges for some food to be prepared for him. He arranges for his very own camel to be milked and for the milk to be given to him.

00:17:01--> 00:17:02

And then he approaches

00:17:04--> 00:17:09

to man and he says, he says to him, what do you have to say for yourself?

00:17:10--> 00:17:19

What do you have to say for yourself? Oh, man. So now for mama says, I am going to propose three options.

00:17:20--> 00:17:29

The first option is if you want to kill to kill me in reprisal. You can have someone of noble blood to kill, you want to kill me, kill me.

00:17:31--> 00:17:34

You want bounty? You want money.

00:17:35--> 00:18:07

If he said to him, if you want compensation, we'll give you the money. Or if you want, you can forgive me an hour be very grateful. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he leaves him for two days. But at the same time, he's giving him food. He's giving him drink. He comes back to him. And he asked him the same question. What do you have to say for yourself? Oh through Mama, and he gives the exact three same responses.

00:18:08--> 00:18:13

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to the Sahaba set him free.

00:18:14--> 00:18:24

After two days of observing the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the beautiful mannerisms and the way of the Muslims.

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

He rides off.

00:18:28--> 00:18:47

He rides off until he gets to a palm Grove on the outskirts of Medina. He washes himself. He turns back to the Prophet, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mosque, he stands before a congregation of the Muslims. And he says, a shadow and

00:18:48--> 00:18:53

a llama. What a shadow. Mohammed Abdullah, who wore a suit,

00:18:54--> 00:19:16

I believe, and I declare that there is no God, no deity worthy of worship except Allah. And I bear witness and I testify that Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is his servant and final messenger. And then he stands before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says, Yeah, Muhammad,

00:19:18--> 00:19:21

Allah He, by Allah.

00:19:22--> 00:19:40

There was never on this earth. There was never on this earth, a face more hated than yours. And now your face is dearer to me than anything else. We're in NACA Allah Allah hood open alvim

00:19:43--> 00:19:45

Khalid IGNOU Walid,

00:19:47--> 00:19:54

one of the greatest military commanders of all times, Abu Bakr in a city called the Allahu anhu.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

About harlot ebenen Walid says women

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

will no longer give birth to the likes of Khalid Abdul Walid.

00:20:05--> 00:20:14

He was one of the few military generals in recorded history that was undefeated in battle.

00:20:15--> 00:20:36

When he died, there wasn't an inch in his body except that he had some scar from battle. He fought against Islam and the Muslims and his tactical military genius is responsible for the killing and injuring of countless Muslims in the Battle of offered

00:20:37--> 00:21:00

a few years after offered, he enters the city of Medina. He approaches the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the sword that is responsible for the spillage of so many Muslim Muslim lives. How do you think he was greeted by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam

00:21:02--> 00:21:12

Khalid in his words, he says, I approached, I approached the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam afraid of what is he going to do with me?

00:21:13--> 00:21:22

And he said, as soon as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam saw me from a distance, he raised up his head.

00:21:24--> 00:21:36

And he smiled. And as Khalid Abdul Walid is approaching the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam can continues to smile until he was right in front of him.

00:21:37--> 00:22:30

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, after stretching out his hand, shakes his hand, and he says to him, I knew you had the intellect that will guide you to Islam, and he became known as safer lie hidden misool which means the drawn Sword of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was considerate towards mothers and children. In Buhari we read that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would intend to lead the congregational prayer, and he intended to have a long recital. But then he would he the crying of an infant, and he would shorten his recital, so as not to make things difficult for the mother and for the child. In Sahih, Muslim we read that a bit when

00:22:30--> 00:22:34

entered the masjid, the mosque of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa said,

00:22:36--> 00:22:42

and he urinated he urinated in one of the corners of the masjid out of his ignorance.

00:22:43--> 00:23:29

And so the Sahaba the companions were prepared to attack him, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam prevented them and he said to the bed when he said to him in these mosques, it is not right to do anything like urinating or defecating. These are places for remembering Allah for praying and for reading the Quran. And he commended for a bucket of water to be thrown over the urine. He displayed perfect manners even towards animals. Once while he was traveling with the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu, to one of the Sahaba they caught two birds. They caught two birds and he can hear the Wailing of the mother of these birds from above. And he says to the Sahaba, who has heard this

00:23:29--> 00:24:17

mother, who has heard this mother by taking her children, and he orders for the two birds to be given back. He had compassion to humans to animals, even to inanimate objects. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he used to deliver his sermons he used to he used to recline or he used to recline on the trunk of a tree. And then a pulpit was made for him a member, a place for him to stand to deliver the sermon by the carpenter of one of the ladies of Medina. And then when he began to deliver the hookah on the minbar this, this tree, this trunk of a tree began to weep. It began to weep and he came off the member and he began to pet and he began to embrace the trunk of a

00:24:17--> 00:24:23

tree until the crying of this the sound of this tree subsided.

00:24:25--> 00:24:46

And in Bukhari, we read Hadith that a group of Jews entered upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while she was sitting with him and they said to him as Sam more alayka, Assam more alikum instead of Assalamu alayka they said Assam Malaika and Assam means death be upon you.

00:24:47--> 00:25:00

So what did she say? She said y Li como Samui Lana, May, May, the May May death be upon you and the curse of Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was affected

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

Have sublime manners? He says yeah Isha. Allah is kind and lenient and likes that one should be kind and lenient in all manners. And she said, Didn't you hear what they said?

00:25:14--> 00:25:19

And he said, and I said to them why they come and tell you the same.

00:25:20--> 00:25:32

In Buhari, a funeral procession pass by, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam out of respect for this funeral he stood up. They said, Yeah, Rasul Allah, it's a Jew.

00:25:34--> 00:25:56

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, was it not a human life. And inside Buhari, we learned that he never complained about food. He would eat the food that he liked. And if he didn't like it, he just simply didn't eat it. He didn't create a fuss. his humility was and will forever be unmatched.

00:25:58--> 00:26:13

And man stood before him trembling, because he is the Messenger of Allah. So what does the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say to him? He says, Be patient. He said, I'm not a king. I am only the son of a woman from Qureshi who used to eat dried meat.

00:26:15--> 00:26:17

And upon entering the city

00:26:19--> 00:26:42

of birth Mecca, and upon the conquest of Mecca, after having been rejected from it for 10 years. What do you think he's going to say to the people who drove him out of his city of birth, the place of the center point, the center point of Islam where the cabinet exists? After 10 years, he says, oh,

00:26:44--> 00:26:50

what do you think I am about to do with you, they replied, You are a noble brother, the son of the noble brother.

00:26:51--> 00:26:55

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No lecture.

00:26:56--> 00:27:05

He said to him, I say to you what you should have said to his brothers, have no fee this day, go your way, for you are all free.

00:27:06--> 00:27:51

Indeed, he was a beacon of good manners. I will leave you with some prophetic gems and pearls of wisdom regarding manners uttered by the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I was commissioned to perfect good moral character. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Those who are most beloved to me, and the closest to me in the Hereafter, are those who have the best manners amongst you. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he is no one of us who does not show mercy and compassion to our young ones, and respect and honor towards our elders. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the best of you are those

00:27:51--> 00:28:15

who are best to their families, and I am the best of you to my family and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a person can reach the level of a person who prays all night and fast all day just because of his good manners. Brothers and sisters, ladies and gentlemen, they have there has never been,

00:28:16--> 00:28:43

and will never be a human that will come into this world until the end of time, with better manners than that of the Prophet Mohammed, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and Allah, and God Almighty is my witness, and Allah knows best and Allah is the source of all strength, as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah him
