alameen when I was looking at how did he get everybody died Alfredo head to head you from minion Salalah alayhi wa sallam Shalom, refer to her.
In the name of the Most Merciful the misnomer of mercy, old praise and glory belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds indeed I was deserving of the best of things and the most beautiful phrases. And we testify that no one is worthy of worship of Allah Lo, the true supreme King without any partners and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a servant, that is messenger.
And the truth is the words the words of Allah, the best of guidance is the perfect example of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salaam in those days, this matters the newly added matters into their religion, for every single one of them as a leading history that only leads to the fire.
inshallah This will be our
last session in the BSL having the companion series. Of course, there's much much more to study, but we promised that it would be brief, it will just be a study of the cornerstones of what else are having of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam believed in terms of his religion, and how that helped him look at the world around him
and proceed with his head high and his Eamon firm towards Allah subhana wa tada that meeting with him and our true life and life of the year after this last session sha Allah will be about the Sahaba and their of love and their character.
And namely, in particular their character, meaning how they deal with people.
Because your character you have in good character you have in good manners. That means having good manners with a love
and good manners with the people, right? The Creator and with his creation.
We discussed in our last sessions, that the Sahaba were the most perfect generation in their eema right in their faith. And then a law surgeon said for men who myth Lima, meant to be for them, if they believe the way you have all it was mentioned in the plural, meaning it's not just the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the way you have all believed the Messenger of Allah and his companions, if they believe the way you believe,
then they have been guiding.
And so they had the most perfect demon and that was the standard against which every buddy else's man would be measured.
It is a natural, direct result of that he learned that they had such perfect character.
It was because of the perfect amount of their teacher, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he says about him Can afolu Qur'an his character was the Quran, he was able to conform. Exactly. Likewise, they were the best students.
And so the perfection of their Eman as a generation automatically directly mirrors into their fluff as well, their character as well. And the reason I'm asserting that over and over again with different wordings, because if a person sees that there's a distinction between your Eman how religious you are, and between your manners, then you have not understood Eman with the prophets of Allah while he was having his companions on the students. And if you find a gap in your manners, or ask the people around you, what are my manners like honestly,
they say if you want to know your flaws, you ask three people.
An experienced elder someone who knows how to analyze people correctly and fair that he can measure you up against his life experiences or
a sworn enemy because he hates you. So he's gonna pick out your flaws really easy for him. It's only thing he can see in you anyway. Or a loyal friend, someone who's going to be honest with you and tell you what maybe someone that is far away can tell you. So ask those three people. If you find a flaw in your
in your character, then no automatically that's a result or reflection of law in your email. Need to come back to the machine and start praying in general mode and hearing the clarity and understanding how can I fill this up again? How can I fix my email?
And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at committed meaning that the man has you know whom are the most complete believers in their email.
Are those that are best in manners? Because we said in the past that the summary of Eman it could be consolidated. Come down to what Eman equals knowing about truly knowing about being acquainted with Allah.
And whoever knows Allah subhanho wa Taala will know himself automatically, right?
And so he would never be proud and arrogant in his character against others, right? He would never despise people look down upon them.
And whomever knows Allah subhanho wa Taala will also know his creation.
They are not Almighty, so I'm not going to fear them. Right?
nor are they
necessarily less than me because only Allah knows the hearts, not me. So I know his creation also has secrets in it as well.
And also, if I know Allah, then I know that I cannot violate his creation, right? I'll know their rights.
And likewise, whomever knows Allah subhanho wa Taala will know that our love placed you here for a reason. And that reason is to test you and of the greatest ways to test you is through the people.
And it's not much of a test when the people are being nice to you. By the way, that's not the real way to measure.
It's when they're not being so nice. That's when the test is more accurate, more precise, how are you going to respond? Are you going to respond to them in light of your relationship with a lot or you're not going to realize success? The person that knows a love is the one that keeps in mind that Allah is watching over me and he put me here to test. So he deals with the people. But in reality, he knows he's actually dealing with a lot. That's the secret. And that's what this will have gone through. So because the demand was so perfect. You don't have the aroma of the
nap. One of his freed slaves. And his most famous students that served him for his whole life was he loved them so much, and admired him so much. He would see that ignore Omar when he notices that a person was becoming more religious among the slaves, he would free that sleeve and that cost tons of money by the way, look at how they deal with the people. So some would come to them and say, Oh, this guy's tricking you. He's acting all religious, let go free him. He's playing a game on you. He says a man called the infp learn who they are and Allah, no problem. Whoever tricks us into doing something for the sake of Allah, we have no problem being tricked into doing this. So they deal with
the people, while keeping in mind that in reality, these people are my tests. I'm in reality dealing with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's why for example, the prophets Allah Allah says, les said was a little bit more careful when I came to La Silla many than kakade rahima who was the one that truly keeps sighs with his families. That's one of the biggest parts of having good character keeping ties with your family, your kin. He says that's not the one that reciprocates like they're good to me. So I'm good to them. They called me once I called them they visited me once I visit them. They gifted me once I get them. No, that's not him. He says the one who truly keeps sighs with
kin is the one that when they cut ties with him, he still keeps ties with them. He's not dealing with them to wait, no, no, he's dealing this way. how Allah subhanho wa Taala wishes of him to deal with them.
So this was crystal clear like his narration of neuroma with the Sahaba. Likewise, looking over custodian
when Miss law
had slipped and repeated the rumor that the hypocrites had generated that the daughter of our workers to deify Asia, the wife of our prophet SAW Selim had fallen into fornication. She committed Zina.
Whenever I heard this,
he swore he would never spend on Mr. Hagen. This was one of the guys that ovoca so they would give a stipend to he'd give him money every once in a while regularly.
So he swore he would never get like I spent on you. And he talked about my garden.
He swore that he would never spend on him again. And by the way, that by itself is good character for welcome.
Because in the culture of the atom, when someone accuses your aluminum adult, you are their daughter, your wife, nothing can make up for that. Nothing can wash that away except his blood.
You understand? That's their culture. So for him to say, I'm not gonna give you any more money that's already awesome.
But Allah subhana wa tada wanted more food.
And he said to him
when he said he
and let's not those of you that have virtue,
virtue, and sad and well, so you have virtue and well let me let them not swear and
let them not swear at you will, they will not, don't swear that you're no longer going to give to your relatives
and the poor and the needy.
Well, er fu those are migrants in the way of a loved one the eye for what I was saying and let them forgive, let them turn a blind eye.
And then allows you
to get to
know him. Don't you love that Allah who would forgive you? And Allah is Forgiving, Merciful, meaning don't look into him and what he did to your work. You are a man of virtue and a man of wealth, it's unbefitting of you to stop a good deed that you did. Because you did it for our love. And don't you want a lot to forgive you? Meaning so forgive him.
So when they dealt with the people, they realize they're really dealing with Allah subhana wa Taala. The Sahaba were raised on this concept that he man and a flap were inseparable. You want them to forgive you forgive others, don't deal with them deal with me. This is the key to having good enough love that was so obvious in the life of a habit and one
you know, in
he says that I had asleep.
That was stubborn.
And I was striking him from anger. And I heard a voice behind me was the Prophet sallallahu is
saying, rude, careful, level, Massoud careful level was rude. And I was so angry. I didn't pay attention. Until finally I turned to find that it's the messenger of love. So I love our
messenger robot. He says Obama's rude Lama who aka mean Carney heat of love is more capable over you that you are over your sleep.
A lot can do to you worse than you're doing to him.
Once again, don't deal with them know what you're doing.
And he said O Messenger of Allah, he's free for the sake of Allah Subhana
Allah Allah Olam, Jeff, lemme set can now well if you had can now, had you not done that almost through the fire would have touched you. The fire would have reached you.
So when a person deals with human beings once again, and he feels like he has power don't look at
your ability against them. reverse it now look at the loss ability over you once again, how do you deal with people by making it their relationship between you and a loved one and that one rule applies in so many levels? Right? That's why for example laws and it says to the men, you have authority, but be careful not to be devastated by your own authority just because you have some ability and so he says to the husband's faith
in IE and kaviraj and if they obey you your wives then don't seek a means of transgression against them indeed a law he's big and high we need to have a level over them with remember a lot so did as a level over you. This is what
we're raising upon it was there and you know,
that enable them to do on every level with the people correctly.
Can somebody give these kids a metal stakes?
You guys have any no tranquilizers? Nothing
I don't want to stop them by the way. I just I can't stand yelling in a lecture. I'm not good at it and I don't like it. You know, so if we can give them a place to play and be comfortable that wouldn't be good.
right you guys put them downstairs in the in the freezer I mean the dinette
right, it's fine. Yeah, that's their right to politely you don't expect them to sit through an hour lecture. Honestly. With giving
Good place to do it
and so have left good characters a direct result of European of their email their firm email their their awareness observance of Allah you know Abdullah was rude. Another of the great great companions he says he are keen to have this firm imagine
your pain is when you don't this you don't please the people
at the cost of this pleasing our love once again No, no, no, you're not worth it. Sorry, you're my test to begin with, with Allah so I'm not gonna please you to anger him. He says nor
are you hating the people for something that Allah gave them nor are you envious of them. It's another character trait that's part of your theme. Something is a loved one that gives them that gift. So why would I hate them for it?
And he says that I
wrote and I never saw an oppressor that looks more like someone who's oppressed than someone who's envious of the people.
Meaning like, what are you doing here? So you're gonna kill yourself dealing with the people on this level? Why are you envious of the people dealing with our love? realize that you're dealing with a love because if you try to be angry that was decisions he gave me this guy rich and this guy smart and we started looking at I was the most generous you're gonna kill yourself right? So understand that Allah is the one that tested you by giving them some and giving you some and then having a bit of what you don't that you having a bit of what they don't. That's why so did you know that's why very, very beautiful narration I even thought it was the one they asked him why are most of the wise
He said the end after moving briskly. That because his mind his intellect is part of his risk. That's what Allah gave.
Right? That's why you think the smarter people would be rich with the smartest people many times therefore his Yeah, because Allah gave this guy money and gave this guy intellect. Lots of the sides of a lot is Earth. You think that IQ equals income level but it doesn't. So that should show you that it's from Allah, that's your test. Just relax. Don't hate the person nor be bothered by the person for dealing with a large zildjian know that he's the one behind it all gela gelato.
And also of what that does is that when you see a person come and ask you for money for that's your test also. Are you going to trust a lot that I was going to repeat? You're not really giving it to them? He's not taking your money from you. It's rather our law. So Jen, who's taking a loan from us, we can give it back to you not because he needs it, obviously.
I didn't know we thought about the luevano when he met when a man approached him in the markets, and asked him for money, he sent the message home to his wife, although the love honestly we hardly have anything we have like six.
Durham's left silver coins left, he said, Bring them
and he gave them to the men.
And he said to his wife, there are persons each man is not complete until he's more confident than what Allah has done. He isn't he has just, it's a test.
And so he gave him the six.
And he saw a man later that day or saw a man selling a camel. So he said sell me the camel, and they agreed that he would buy the camel from him for 140 gilham. He said, but give me some time. I'll pay you later, like I owe you right? So the guy gave him the camel, he tied the camel and the guy said I'll take the money from you later. I later on found the man that he sold him the camel and he sold him the camel for 200 200. So he takes 140 and he gives it to the original owner. And he takes 60 and he goes and gives it to his wife. She said What is this? He said this is the promise of love, that a good deed is worth 10 times its amount. You gave six and here you're 60 in the same day. You
deal with the people as noticing and this is the act of alcohol testing me with them.
That's why I
was so successful. He wouldn't compromise his principles not even to get an edge because he knew his edge was with his principles that he lived on. There was a panda without observing them. You know one of them not one of the greatest masterminds, my knowledge of the Persian empire that was able to break right
his name was a homeless and homeless no was a mastermind. He really was. He was the this the strategizing mind of the person general
So in one many of the battles one of the captains started out to be Oh man, we call the loser himself. Right?
And Amara Mohan brings him forward.
And this man, by every means, according to every country standards, even in 2015, deserve to die.
sorrow, the loved one who
came forward and the homeless and said, Are you going to combine for me between death and thirst? He knows that the Muslims are good to their capitals. And this is what the prophet SAW Selim thought, even on the battlefield, we have manners.
He said, you're going to make me wait for execution thirsty, give me some water. So he gave him some water. So Moses takes the water in his head, this trembling,
And then he says to Rama, you promise that you're gonna let me finish this drink of water? You won't kill me until I drink it. He said, You have my word. So Roseanne does what he's not gonna kill me till I drink the water. He spills the water on the floor,
get killed, enjoy drinking. He knew that aroma was a man of his word.
So remember the love honestly, though, this guy in prison till he figured out what else we can do. Right? He refused to kill him at home was that at that point? So the shadow Allah, Allah Allah, Allah becomes a Muslim.
Absolutely, at least and as a whole long discussion later that he was of those that conspired against assassinating from what later. But the point is, he said, I wanted the world to know I didn't become Muslim because afraid of the sword when he put the sword down, then I became Muslim. But the point is, look at how Roma dealt with him. You have my word, I won't kill you. Right? Until you drink fine, you have that leisure, so he didn't drink. So I want to be forced to keep his word that he did.
a Jewish man
stole his shield, the shield he used to use in the battles.
And so Ali is the halifa imagine this guy's the president. But imagine they have left this civilization had
until today, nothing like it has been replicated. And that's you need to know that nothing will replicate it until we revisit the amount of muscle however, that's why I'm putting the lights of the series together. There is nothing like it's really
takes this Jewish man to court. He's the guy killed, right is the president who stole my shield. He takes him to court there has to be due process. There has to be justice. Nobody's above the law, not even the Khalifa himself.
And so the judge just says so Ali.
Ali, Do you have proof that it's your shield?
Because the prophet SAW Selim Silva, you know, to eliminate the burden of proof is on the plaintiff, the guy making the complaint has to be the one bringing the proof.
He said Nah, I don't have any proof. I can't prove it, though it says but he couldn't prove it.
He said to the Jewish woman swear, because the defendant has to swear and is off the hook. While he Amina hamanaka, he says and the oath is the duty of the defendant, or though the DA deny or deny the accusation. So and he didn't have the proof that his obligation he couldn't do it. So the Jewish man, as I swear I didn't steal it. It's mine.
So the judge said, it says, we can't do anything else. Right.
And so Alan never thought it. But the law he walks out of the courtroom, you think this is this? This can't be real. Right? But the likes of these incidents happened all the time. You know, the Jewish man came after him. He said, Here's your shield, and he gave it to like, what is this some sick joke? We will draw all this and now and here's my shield. He said yes.
These are the manners of the prophets. And he became a Muslim Batman
and Aleve was a flop and he's standing upon this character and this justice
so it's an obligation on us to practice when we deal with people to realize we are in actuality dealing with who was also kind of or die and until you revive and like you know feed the amount of yours it'll be hard to do that. But part of it is to try to practice doesn't happen overnight that teach yourself to remember that this is our model this than this incident for me here now. A law so just says what do I love our welcome leave
Oddly enough, it's not an apple spoon. What can our bouquet vasila and we made you tests for one another? on so many are you going to fear him? Are you going to be nice to him? Are you gonna have mercy on it? We made you tests for one another, every person you meet that every moment that's a test for you, how you're going to deal with it. And we made you test for one another? Are you going to be patient, you know, you're going to hold on to what you're supposed to hold on to in every respective situation. Then the verse ends by saying what pay attention what cannot bookable serum and your Lord is ever watchful. Some of the relevant and explaining this concept of being watchful
of, of our love watching you, right?
They said, consider the monster if I ever told you this example before, they say so when someone is in front of you try to consider them like a glass board like a shell
and try to see a love behind them. Meaning what, whether Allah is the one that put them there, I could have been caught and another red light in the whole bunch of different variables wouldn't have had me meet this person here now, right? I could have gone before a different generation, I could have had a different wife, I could have had different kinds of parents, my kids could have been angels, whatever. Every person placed in front Allah put them there are you going to be patient and he's watching.
So your husband snaps at you or your wife loses her temper in front of you, or your kid does something you never thought they would do? Or your parents are making your life a living whatever, right? People are accusing the Muslims of this or tempting the Muslims into that this woman is walking by here this is see through that, who put that there in front of me. This is Allah subhana wa Tada.
If we can get ourselves to do that,
life would be so much easier.
It would be because one of the hardest tests in life or life is dealing with human beings. Right? Sometimes you wish you could just build the treehouse just like everyone
and just pray that have to deal with the problems. But that is of the greatest ways to prove to a love that you're conscious of him. And that you really fear him and that you really going to pull out the stops to please Him.
The Hadith says unnecessary Allah that the people are the dependence of Allah. Right? How do you stand in front of Allah and sada as a righteous person after you've wronged these dependents? Like if you slap somebody's kid in Islamic school? What are you going to look? How are you going to feel the next time you meet their parents? extremely awkward. The righteous person deals with the creation like that to Allah put them in front of me and I messed up bad. How do I feel when I go stand in front of him again? keeping those thoughts, that's my first test of the day. That's my second test. Every person is a test of mine.
And aside from making life so much easier, these types of manners are contagious, right? Somebody has to start them everybody's waiting on the next guy have good manners, so you'll reciprocated Someone has to be conscious of a lunch trigger this you know, I'll end with
with just one story of bubbles. Another example we'll keep we kept all the examples sample. So habit intentionally, obviously, the show you how obvious This was in their lives.
On how these types of love
are contagious. A man had grabbed another and dragged him in front of Robocop during this khilafah. And he said to us, oh, Minnie, no leader of the believers, this guy killed my dead.
Equal retaliation. I want to have death penalty. He said you killed his dead. Yeah, killed his dead. Why did you kill is that he said he got on my property. I told him to get off, and he wouldn't leave. So I threw a rock at him and hit him in the head and he died.
So I had no choice. There has to be no retribution. That penalty.
So the man said to him?
Yeah, I mean, I have a family that has no one to take care of them. But Allah subhanho wa Taala and then me.
No one even knows where they live. We live off in side of a mountain somewhere. So no one can care for them. No one has the ability to after a love with me. So give me time to go tell them like don't wait for me go earn for a living for yourself at the end of it.
Give me some time. Give me three days and I'll come back. Of course.
So I'm out on the lawn couldn't do that justice had to be established, he said and who will guarantee for me
That you will come back, you need to guarantee some of the sign for you.
I don't have a guarantee. So it's that's when that's it.
And the people stood there.
one of the men stands up.
This was another of the companions of the Prophet salallahu audio. So this is what
he says, or Omar, I'll be his guarantee. And by the way, this is insane. Because you're not guaranteeing him for an apartment lease, right that you go to court for him, right? You're not guaranteeing him for $10 that you'll pay them if he doesn't pay them. You're guaranteeing him for his neck. If he doesn't come you, you're there in his place. So he says, And why would you guarantee him? He said, because I see in him signs of goodness, he seems like a believer.
And of course, if a person is asking, How are you believable, he just admitted to killing somebody he could have had, even the people that have the worst tempers could have fighting them. And Mussolini Sarah slipped and unintentionally killed somebody right or wrong. And he's of the greatest of the believers.
So he said, I will guarantee you
and so the three days pass, and the the appointment comes in, a man doesn't show up.
At our own capo is as stressed as imaginable like I'm gonna kill him with
the prophet SAW, Selim said nobody woke this green earth, that is true or in their email than a Buddha. I'm gonna have to execute this man with justice, justice.
And when the man didn't show up, and they were about to executable,
the man shows up.
And so everybody's standing there thinking it was about to die. So I'm saying,
like, what a relief finally relieved, I will notice the assumption of the van was correct. And I will notice life will continue in Sharla. And from the honesty of this man, right, and the sacrifice of this brother for his brother, this is my test. All right, I'm doing this for my brother.
Because of that, the family of the victim forgive them and the murder, and they let him go. These types of a flap the like I said, they're contagious. They ricochet one into another. But they're going to begin with people who care for their Eman are able to be conscious of Allah Subhana Allah God and how they deal with the people inside and out in the massage. The person that only smiles outside and doesn't have any smiles for his family for his kids. We need to check our email like that because I might faking it or not. Allah sees me here and sees me there. Why does it have you say the best of you the best of their family? Right behind closed doors, right? How can you be
consistent like that? How can I be a truly righteous person with good character is someone that can feed their Eman until they worship our laws though they see him and if they can't see him, they know that Allah sees them. affordable. He has a lot of love on me and I'm humbled by that he was on page 100
