Honestly, when Malik started working for Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, when he was 10 years old, and he worked for him for 10 years, and he said in those 10 years of working for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he did not hear the Prophet even once say a bad word to him. Not once, even though he made a lot of mistakes, I mean, from the age of 10 to 20, you're going to make a lot of mistakes, right? So unless even Malik reports at once, when he was like 10, or 11 years old, the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi, wasallam, gave him some money, and told him to go to the marketplace and to buy certain items for the house with that money. Honestly, when Malik left the

00:00:39--> 00:01:14

house, and he saw some children, his age playing in the streets, and he got caught up, and he stopped playing with it. And he forgot about the era, he forgot that he needed to go to the marketplace. In the meanwhile, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is in his house, he's waiting for us to come back, you know, with the groceries, and honestly not coming on, it's not coming, he started to get worried. He goes outside, and he sees others playing with the other children. And he walks up to others with a smile on his face. He asked him, you know, why would you do groceries? And honestly, when Molly's forgot, so he said, Okay, going by now, and this reaches into his pockets,

00:01:14--> 00:01:52

and realizes he lost the money. So not only did he not buy the groceries, he lost the money. Now, of course, how does the average parent today react? If you tell your teenager to go buy the groceries? And not only forget to buy the groceries, but they lose the money in the process? How would you? How did Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam react? He laughed, he laughed because he understood this is a child children are not going to have the same level of experience and wisdom as adults, they're going to make mistakes he loved he gave us a bit more money and told him to go and buy the groceries. Right? So honest, when he bought the groceries, he fulfilled the task. But this became a

00:01:52--> 00:02:26

memory for him. That when he messed up when he, you know, failed to live up to the expectations of the elders Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam set the example of how to deal with children when they make mistakes. And that example is to have the compassion towards them to understand this is a child this is someone younger than me. This is a person who's going to make more mistakes than me. This is a person who doesn't have life experience. It's okay let them learn from it. Let them grow from it. Don't expect them to perform on the same level as someone who is 30 or 40 years old.
