00:00:59--> 00:01:03

She stands up at night in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

However, at the same time, a prophet of a law

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

she's very abusive with a tongue

00:01:15--> 00:01:18

she's very abusive was her tongue.

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

What is the situation Olivia for law?

00:01:23--> 00:01:27

The Prophet of Allah responded, La Jolla, Rafi ha he have in now.

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

There is no good in such a woman.

00:01:32--> 00:01:36

There is no good in such a person. She is going to Johanna

00:01:39--> 00:01:42

a woman who is fasting regularly.

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

A woman was worshipping Allah by the night.

00:01:46--> 00:01:56

By the same token, she's abusive with a tongue towards others. The Prophet of Allah said La Jolla raffia he have enough she is going to Johanna.

00:01:58--> 00:02:06

She'll be entered into the fire of jahannam for a short period to be cleansed of all this evil, and then enter into Jenna.

00:02:09--> 00:02:19

The same time they asked the prophet of a law in Morocco to Salma Cuba with a Cirque du coup owner we have a law we have a lady also

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

who performs her five daily salah

00:02:25--> 00:02:27

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

What is the situation with regards to her?

00:02:32--> 00:02:40

To the JIRA happy Lisa Neha, she does not abused anybody with her tongue. She does not hurt anybody.

00:02:41--> 00:02:46

The profitable law said here is Jenna. She is going Jenna.

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

Two situations in front of us.

00:02:53--> 00:02:57

And so today I want to speak about the importance of good character in our life.

00:02:58--> 00:03:04

What is the meaning of a HELOC? You've heard this many times of luck of luck. What does it mean?

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

In simple terms,

00:03:07--> 00:03:11

a philosophy is a combination of good qualities.

00:03:13--> 00:03:14

It's like a fruit salad.

00:03:15--> 00:03:28

A fruit set it brings together the best of all the fruits. You can taste an apple can taste the banana in they can taste the guava. You can taste the all other combinations there.

00:03:29--> 00:03:45

That's the beauty of the fruit salad. Likewise, olive is a combination of good qualities. tolerance for parents forgiveness, overlooking the shortfalls of people, being patient,

00:03:47--> 00:03:55

a flock in your speech of luck in your action. All this is known as a flock, a combination of good qualities.

00:03:57--> 00:03:58

And I want to emphasize here

00:04:00--> 00:04:03

when it comes to a birder when it comes to worship,

00:04:04--> 00:04:08

people naturally attach importance to it.

00:04:09--> 00:04:31

We understand the importance of Salah we understand the importance of discharging our car. Likewise, we understand the importance of fulfilling our right to Allah subhanaw taala. In terms of hygiene, we understand the obligation of fasting, we understand it, people give its due importance.

00:04:32--> 00:04:36

But when it comes to o'clock, people have a different mindset.

00:04:39--> 00:04:45

People do not see a clock as important as the other Pillars of Islam.

00:04:47--> 00:04:55

And so a person will excel in terms of his eyebrows or when it comes to Salah etc. hygiene all other evader but when it comes to

00:04:57--> 00:04:57

zero

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

when it comes to

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

arriba and hamdulillah is there on top.

00:05:03--> 00:05:06

And we need to avoid the extremes.

00:05:07--> 00:05:18

The middle path is the path of sooner. And if you study the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, on one side, you will see him crying at night, to the extent that his feet would swell up.

00:05:20--> 00:05:27

On one side, you team fighting in the battlefield. On one side, you will see him reading Salah for long hours in the night.

00:05:29--> 00:05:32

And on the other side, you will see a lot of law

00:05:33--> 00:05:48

his mannerism towards people, the rich in the community, the poor in the community, the elderly in the community, the young ones in the community is a flock towards his own wife, Allahu Akbar unmatched.

00:05:50--> 00:05:59

So he was unmatched in his arriva in terms of Salah Victor and all other riveredge is to be found and unmatched in terms of his or her life also.

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

And we as human beings, we need to continue to improve on our models. We need to continue to improve our mannerisms and our way, for our flock is equally as important as the other ibaadat the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in a scholarship in youth ofii Misa de la abdomen kiama Hulu hassane, the prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam said the weightiest thing, the weightiest thing that will be brought on the deaf kiama in your scales of record, will be

00:06:39--> 00:06:49

in color shape, in the weightiest of actions that will be brought on the day of piano will be of good character towards human beings.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

A lot

00:06:53--> 00:07:09

of luck, how much of importance Allah has attached to this. He addresses his prophet in the Quran saying, in nature Narada who Luca Nazim O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have given you the highest of a HELOC.

00:07:12--> 00:07:20

We don't only follow the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam in terms of our ibotta we also follow him in terms of our character.

00:07:21--> 00:07:41

The way we deal with one another is appalling, is heartbreaking. The way we address each other the titles that we take, and the derogatory terms that we use for one another is heartbreaking. You see, father and son cannot address each other with respect. Husband and wife cannot speak to each other with respect.

00:07:43--> 00:08:28

You have your difference of opinion, it's on its place. nobody's saying you must agree with everything in life. But it does not mean you throw up your God. That does not mean you vilify the person in front of you. That does not mean you bring down his honor in front of anyone. It does not mean that you abuse the next person in terms of your tongue. Allah calls towards justice in this regard. I look at the Quran in its teaching one or two Sahaja cleaners when Adam Schiff is out of the Maha in nawala kukula standing for Who am I showing importance to Allah in the Quran? And what is the law saying when somebody is speaking to you, when somebody is conversing with you to not give

00:08:28--> 00:08:29

him the cheek?

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

Do not give him the cheek.

00:08:34--> 00:08:40

Don't look away when somebody is talking to you make eye contact that somebody is talking to you and you're like, yeah,

00:08:41--> 00:08:42

yeah,

00:08:43--> 00:08:57

a lysine, whatever to say and what the cunningness 1400 years ago Allah is teaching us mannerism and Allah will attempt to fill out the Maha don't bounce in your walk in. Don't walk with haughtiness

00:08:58--> 00:09:12

don't have pride in you in nawala. Hippo cola bottling for for Allah does not like people who have pride in them. What sit famous ship when you walk in, walk with humility. You walk upright but you don't bounce

00:09:14--> 00:09:29

was good mean so thick and when you are speaking to people speak to them in a kind manner. We're fooling a nurse first now speak nicely to people our dresses moosari salam ala Quran

00:09:31--> 00:09:44

for Kula Allahu kolon lejana Allahu Allah is telling Musa alayhis salam to speak to fit around in a nice palatable manner.

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

A lies a dressing and a B.

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

To speak kindly to an enemy.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

Not the ordinary enemy, an enemy who butchered 1000s and 1000s of bunnies raw in mercilessly.

00:10:01--> 00:10:22

A man who claim to be a law himself, but masala Salaam is told for Kula who code and Lina speak nicely Timo Musa Allahu Allah is telling an ability to speak to an enemy like that. We can address believers. We can't even address each other with too much of respect. A lot more

00:10:23--> 00:10:25

ways the kind of people

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

in a

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

way is muckety muck.

00:10:32--> 00:10:42

We forget how the Prophet of Allah addressed people who are not so cordial to him. We forget how the Prophet of Allah conducted himself in people who are rude to him.

00:10:44--> 00:10:50

And the truth test of o'clock, is at a time when a man is not cordial to you.

00:10:52--> 00:11:14

It's easy to reciprocate with kindness when somebody is nice to you. If somebody is nice to me, it's easy to be nice to him because we equal but a test of o'clock is when a person is vilifying you when a person is trying to bring you down, it is a death time. You show him a lot of wall

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

a lot.

00:11:17--> 00:11:46

The profit of ally standing in Makkah is the conqueror of Mecca. And he asked the people yeah, Allah maka. Oh, people of Mecca. Tell me Maduro the Nephilim become, what do you think I'm going to do with you today? He is a leader who has full right today to extract revenge. He has full right to bring people to the book. What does he do to them?

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

Despite having the power?

00:11:51--> 00:12:11

He says, If Habu and to move to LA car, go, I freed you. I forgiven you for the sake of a law. Well, can we mean a while while our afina Annie nurse, one wha hoo your head will Marcin in ours is those who suppress the anger. Those who swallow the anger.

00:12:13--> 00:12:18

And those who forgive people. Allah says I love them. I love them.

00:12:20--> 00:12:41

So if you want to get close to Allah, work on your character, work on your luck, work on your morals, how you treat people around you is very important. Keep the dignity of a human being in front of you, Muslim or non Muslim and I. The fact is that he's a human being give him the respect that he deserves. above what

00:12:43--> 00:12:57

we need to show the world the beauty of Islam to our flock. We need to work on our models. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the best gift a father can give to his son is good character.

00:12:58--> 00:13:13

Good luck. That's the best gift the father can give the son for the world will be a better place to live in. People recognize the rights of each other. And people show that you respect that we are falling short in our

00:13:14--> 00:13:54

you've got so many opportunities every day at your doorstep, in your businesses at home at your madrasa wherever you are so many opportunities presenting itself for you to display your good character. Let us utilize those opportunities to come closer to Allah. Worship a lot through your luck, just as you worship Him through the Quran, just as you worship Him through Salah just as you worship Him through the kind hatch, show the importance towards luck, work on your morals, introspect in your life, and I also need to introspect in my own life, where can I improve?

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

We can become a better person for this will help you on the day of the AMA Allah.

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:14:05--> 00:14:08

that the closest to me on the day of the Yama

00:14:09--> 00:14:20

in Accra, Baku, mini imaginista, Newman criada. The closest to me on the day of karma will be those people who are excellent in the law.

00:14:22--> 00:14:26

Do you not want to be in the company of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam

00:14:28--> 00:14:32

Do you not want to share the same podium as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:14:34--> 00:14:39

through your ohana you can get into the company of Rasulullah sallallahu is

00:14:40--> 00:14:47

the best among you as those people who are best in character and the Prophet of Allah says we're here to

00:14:48--> 00:14:53

clear familia de and the best in people are those people who are kind

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

towards their wives towards a woman folk. And the reason why this is happening

00:15:00--> 00:15:15

Single out in the Hadith is people are generally people will be nice towards others outside of the house, you know talk nicely, he will address them with a title. You come in our house, the same men will be shocked the way he speaks to his wife.

00:15:18--> 00:15:21

The way he addresses his wife is appalling.

00:15:22--> 00:15:29

And so we need to follow the footsteps of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam for Allah has made him

00:15:30--> 00:16:21

the pinnacle of law, he is at the highest level possible in every good quality for Allah has sent him to reform the ways of people in nama boys to me Mama Karim, Allah, Allah, the prophet of Allah said, Allah has sent me to perfect of luck and to take it to its highest level. When we talking about suffer, it is found of the highest level in Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. When we talk about forgiveness, it's found to its highest level, in the Prophet of Allah the law is seldom any good quality that is found in the world. There can be no one better than the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for the poor Iran has declared this and for Allah subhanaw taala sent Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to

00:16:21--> 00:16:50

reform the ways of people, brothers, let us do some soul searching. Let us introspect in our ways and the way we are speaking to people. Our mannerism, let's try to bring it in line with the student of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam just as that lady which I quoted earlier on, was despite performing salah and despite fasting during the day, because of her flock, she ended up in janam.

00:16:52--> 00:16:55

We don't want to find ourselves in that position.

00:16:56--> 00:17:38

Let us insha Allah make dua, that Allah subhanaw taala reform always the profitable load make dua for good character, study the CEO of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and let us work on our children also, how they address other people, people who are older than them, the domestics that are working in our house, let's address them with respect. Let's teach our children to address them by proper titles. respect people for their human beings. Religion is afterwards just the mere fact that they are human beings. Let us insha Allah treat them well and be kind towards them. May Allah subhanaw taala give us the understanding of Marlena is a little below
