It's been at another Haven hungry lair a bit Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Aisha Philippi when will sorry Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allahu Allahu Allah. He was ever seldom to Steven cathedral cathedral Hama Babu.

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

I want to do a series of

00:00:20--> 00:00:35

Patras on the issue of Islamic manners. And the one of the best sources of that is the beautiful book written by Sheikh Abdul Fattah.

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

About Wanda Hunter learn. Chef Abdelfattah have a wonderful holiday was born in Syria 1917 And he is one of the outstanding Muslim scholars of the 20th century. He was a leader. He was a leading scholar in the field of Hadith and the Hanafi school of IK he studied in Syria and Egypt and specialized in the Arabic language and Hadith and Sharia and in psychology. And he had many prominent teachers among them was Shahara Ravi bubble bath, Shama Dibner, Muhammad Mohamed El Zarca, Chef, Isa Al Biruni, and chef and model coup de and the renowned Ottoman scholar scholar Imam, Al Gore said he, he taught also fifth and Hanafi fifth and comparative fit at the University of

00:01:32--> 00:01:48

Damascus. He also taught at the King Saud University and Imam Muhammad Ignacio, with Islamic University. And he passed away in 1997 in Medina, and he is buried in Albuquerque, we ask Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:49--> 00:01:54

to grant him Jonathan velocidad, to be very sad, and to accept his

00:01:57--> 00:02:14

his work and to reward him in keeping with his majesty and grace. The original book is in is in Arabic. And I'm going to read from the translation of this

00:02:16--> 00:02:35

beautiful book, which was done by the son of Chef Abdelfattah and that is Mohammed Zeid abroad. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to also bless and reward Sheikh Mohammed

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

for his

00:02:38--> 00:02:43

Mombasa hate for his work for up bringing this book to

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

people who

00:02:47--> 00:02:51

who do not know and who do not speak and read Arabic.

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

Now

00:02:57--> 00:02:59

the whole book is really worth

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

reading and understanding

00:03:06--> 00:03:16

that I think I'm just going to read from it from the beginning. The foreword of this book has been written by

00:03:18--> 00:03:19

he has a lot of money

00:03:22--> 00:03:26

and it is really worth giving some thought to he says

00:03:28--> 00:03:42

Bismillah Alhamdulillah Arabella Alameen wa Salatu was Salam Radha Shakeela ba will mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Stephen cathedra. And then he says we've never work. Robert DeNiro said

00:03:44--> 00:04:21

McCauley, they've now saying once said to me, we are more in need of acquiring other than of learning Hadith. We are more in need of acquiring other than learning Hadith. I think about this, that if this statement was true, several centuries ago, then it is even more true now. The mere acquisition of knowledge alone is insufficient to build a sound and balanced Islamic personality. Ma'am Zachary Allen sorry. He said knowledge without other is like fire without wood. And other without knowledge is like a spirit without a body.

00:04:23--> 00:04:27

So both are important and one is the foundation of the other.

00:04:28--> 00:04:32

Imam kamaljit how to lay quartered, the

00:04:33--> 00:04:48

ALMA saying that the soul Wolf is good manners, and anyone who surpasses you in manners is better than you in the Sabbath. So it is not a question of you know, being some ritual or

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

some dance it is really good manners in okay modularity comments on this and says, Indeed, the deen of Islam itself is manners.

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

Anyone surpassing you in manners is better than you in the

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

and this is true for we only need to quote the Hadees as related in Buhari where Rasulullah Salam said, I have not been sent as a messenger except to perfect character, I have not been sent as a messenger except to perfect character, no other manners.

00:05:26--> 00:05:48

Others are an integral part of the development of a sound, personality and sound Islamic Muslim personality. It is something that one is brought up with and sees around him and has acquired the beauty of our civilization is manifested in the values and manners embodied in the interaction of its members. The more dignified the manners,

00:05:49--> 00:06:01

the more stable and vibrant the social fabric of our societies throughout life, we look at our society today. This is what is hugely hugely missing, that dignity is gone.

00:06:05--> 00:06:27

But sadly, we live in times where other is lacking at all levels of society. We live in an other blessed society where parents are disrespected teachers are not treated with you honor, elders are not given their due rights and the basic manners of eating, visiting appearance and conversation are not observed. So sad is the predicament that

00:06:29--> 00:06:33

books have to be written and lectures have to be delivered in order to teach other

00:06:35--> 00:07:01

traditionally others was not something that was formally taught. Rather, it was something acquired and embodied in the very interaction between people, as we say, in order to Sahaba sahabat 70 into production even the Sahaba became Sahaba because of the Sabbath, the companionship of a sorcerer salah they absorbed from him his beautiful manners,

00:07:02--> 00:07:51

such as the importance of manners, trivial though they may seem that the actions of a believer will be rendered null and void if manners are lacking. In the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala agenda did Allah Who, addressing the companions of the Prophet SAW Salem says, All you believe Do not raise your voices above the voice of the prophet nor speak aloud to him in talk as you speak to one another. lest your deeds may be rendered fruitless while you don't know why you perceive not. This isn't sort of the second night when I was about to turn in the first day I let's say do not put yourself before that to cut the movie in the law here but what else woody but the whole law said

00:07:51--> 00:08:11

don't put yourself before the before Allah and it also meaning that anybody who says for example that about a hadith says it this was awesome said this, but in my opinion, and I have a different opinion is doing this. And Allah's wanted I said when you do that if you do this kind of thing, then Allah will wipe out your deeds and you will not even be aware see how what a

00:08:12--> 00:09:01

terrible and what a serious threat that is. Mumbai Rahula reported that Abdullah Agnes obey or the Alon Omar, he said that after the revelation of this i Whenever Omar Malhotra Delano wanted to speak to Surah Salah he would talk almost in whispers to the point that the wrestlers or Salah could hardly hear him and would ask him to repeat what is it? Such was his eagerness to abide by the other of conversation, lest his righteous actions become an accepted by a North America. Many of the Muslims especially the youth of today are not ill mannered because we intentionally failing to abide by basic manners but because they are truly ignorant of what manners are. We live in societies that

00:09:01--> 00:09:16

emphasize material progress and fail to even consider the role of ethics and values and spirituality and character building and manners. Hence, we are in need of reminding ourselves of the other that should be embodied in our personalities.

00:09:17--> 00:09:59

However, other should not also be viewed as a separate entity, detached from other aspects of life, it should be seen as the essence of all work, especially the work of dower and striving to change society. To go to an extreme by claiming that other is all that is required is also gross injustice. Once while visiting a Muslim country, I attended a lecture of a prominent Islamic figure who was discussing in great detail the other or standing and sitting. Upon enquiry, I learned that the topic of other was the subject matter of nearly every lecture, delivered by many of the prominent Islamic figures of that country. The day to day problems of society are being babied.

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

lectured and ignored. Few spoke against the rule of tyranny, oppression and injustice, social, economic and political problems were not being addressed or even highlighted. Other bits certainly important, but neglecting other vital aspects of life is surely not part of the comprehensive methodology of Islam.

00:10:22--> 00:10:29

This book was written by Chef aboda When translated by Sun Professor mimosa, Botha,

00:10:31--> 00:10:50

the likes of Shabbat, Buddha are rare to come by, he was one of the most prominent scholars of Hadith in the 20th century, and a leader of the Islamic activity in Syria in Syria. And thus, striving not only integrating prophetic traditions, but also making them a living reality.

00:10:57--> 00:10:58

She have a word that

00:10:59--> 00:11:11

chose to write on this topic because he observed many people disregarding these essential other or miserable misrepresenting them, it's thus an honor for

00:11:12--> 00:11:23

this publication, the awakening publications who published his book to publish a book on such a topic written by such a person. So, this is the foreword to the book.

00:11:24--> 00:11:37

And let us let me end with this one here. So we just give it some thought and the thought is, the importance of other in our lives, the importance of manners, in our lives.

00:11:38--> 00:12:21

As the as the author said, we live in a society where the absence of manners is very visible, the presence of manners is very rare and therefore this is something which is such a wonderful thing to do, because if you do even a little bit of it, you will be noticed. And you will find that the reward of that is out of proportion to whatever little you did so even more encouragement for us to behave with the best possible manners in every situation. I remind myself I knew that the challenge is to behave in the best possible manners when somebody else is behaving with us, in manners which are lacking. So it's not a matter of doing good to people to do good, but to hurt or doing good to

00:12:21--> 00:12:29

people who do not do you ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy for us and to accept it from us. So Salalah will carry value so remember how to get money
