In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy All Praise and glory belongs to Allah, Lord of the Worlds indeed Allah is deserving of the best of things and the most beautiful phrases. And we testify that
no one is worthy of worship of Allah Allah, the true supreme king, or any partners and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a servant, that His messenger
and the truest of words, the words of Allah and the best of guidance, is the perfect example of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam and the most dangerous matters, the newly added matters into the religion. For every single one of them as a leading mystery that only leads to the fire.
In sha Allah, this will be our
last session in the BSL having be a companion series. Of course, there's much much more to study, but we promise that it will be brief, and 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 Eman firm towards Allah subhana wa Taala that meeting with him in our true life and life of the year after this last session sha Allah who will be about the Sahaba and their a flood and their character.
And namely, in particular their character meaning how they deal with people.
Because your character you haven't good character you haven't good manners. That means having good manners with Allah, and good manners with the people. I love the creator and with his creation.
We discussed in our last sessions, that the Sahaba was the most perfect generation in their Eema right in their faith, and that Allah azza wa jal said for in Manu Beamish Lima, men to behave according to 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 Iman and that was the standard against which every buddy else's Eman would be measured.
It is a natural direct result of that Iman, that they had such perfect character.
It was because of the perfect amount of their teacher the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I Isha says about him can have Hulu, who will Quran his character was the Quran, he was able to conform, exactly. Likewise, they were the best students.
And so the perfection of their event as a generation automatically directly mirrors into their afterlife 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 iman, how religious you are and between your manners, then you have not understood Eman with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his companions understood it. 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
ace sworn enemy because he hates you. So he's going to 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 iman in your character, then no automatically that's a result or reflection of a flaw in your email. You need to come back to the masjid and start praying in general mode and hearing the Quran and the Sunnah and understanding how can I feel this up again? How can I fix my Iman
and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at committed meaning that Iman has seen a woman love God, the most complete believers in their email
And are those that are best in manners? Because we said in the past that the summary of iman it could be consolidated. Come down to what Eman equals knowing Allah truly knowing Allah being acquainted with Allah.
And whoever knows Allah Subhana Allah, Allah 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 on the people or 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 Allah? Are you not going to realize the test? The person that knows Allah is the one that keeps in mind that Allah is watching over me and he put me here to test him. So he deals with the people but in reality he knows he's actually dealing with Allah. That's the secret. And that's what the Sahara desert because their Eman was so perfect. You know, Abdullah had an aroma or the Allahumma
naffaa One of his freed slaves, and his most famous students that served him for his whole life was he loved him 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, but then how they deal with the people. So some would come to him and say, Oh, Darla, this guy streak in you. He's acting all religiously like go free him. He's playing a game on you. He says man fidanza Fila, he 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 Subhana Allah to Allah and that's why for example the prophets Allah Allah Allah Islam says lace and wall so you know we look at when I kinilaw Silla many than pokok Rahim who who was that the one that truly keep sighs with his family. 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 give 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 this narration of Norma with the Sahaba likewise, looking over crystal dip about the Allahu Taala and
when Miss La was one of lucha they had slipped and repeated the rumor that the hypocrites had generated that the daughter of Abu Bakr, so deify Aisha, the wife of our Prophet SAW Selim had fallen into fornication. She committed Zina.
Whenever book heard this sort of the hola Juan.
He swore he would never spend on Miss Lucha again. This was one of the guys that oboe custodian will give us Viper into. He'd give him money every once in a while regularly.
So he swore he would never get like I spend 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 him welcome.
Because in the culture of the Arab when someone accuses your woman of adultery or their daughter, your wife, nothing can make up for that nothing can wash that away except his blood
Do you understand that's their culture? So for him to say I'm not gonna give you any more money that's already awesome
with Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted more full book and studying for the Allah Han. And he said to him General Journal
Well I tell you to fugly my income was sad.
And let's not those of you that have virtue ovoca Sleep with the people who hurt you. And sad and well so you have virtue and wealth law yet sadly, let them not swear any level alief let them not swear a YouTube Hulu poor where they will not, don't swear that you're no longer going to give to your relatives
and the poor and the needy.
Well we are who we are those that migrates in the way of Allah will ER for the US fasho Allah saying and let them forgive, let them turn a blind eye.
And then Allah Allah.
I want to get to Allah to hit buena young Pharaoh ma hula Kumala hula hula Rahim. Don't you love that Allah who's forgive you. And Allah is Forgiving, Merciful, meaning don't look at 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 Allah and don't you want Allah 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 Eman and a flap were inseparable. You want Allah 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 lives of the Sahaba one Allah Ali.
You know, in Insight Muslim, the Hadith of the ALLAH and 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 you know, saying, oh, Lord Obama, slow and careful level Masood 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 allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He's the Messenger of Allah. He says, oh, Massoud love Allah Who up or down la Laker mankind he Allah is more capable over you, then you are over your sleeve.
Allah 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 is free for the sake of Allah Subhana.
Allah Allah will let Jeff lemma set can now well if you had Ken now, had you not done that almost rode, 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
you your ability against them. Reverse it now look at Allah's ability over you. Once again, how do you deal with people by making it the relationship between you and Allah subhanho wa taala. And that one rule, but it 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, Spain are gonna convert them who are they Hina Sabina in Allah? How can I en Kaviraj and if they obey you your wives, then don't seek a means of transgression against them. Indeed Allah he's big and high we need you have a level over them. But
to remember Allah azza wa jal has a level over you this is what those who have raised upon it was their Iman in Allah there your team that enable them to do whatever you love them with the people correctly.
Can somebody give these kids amount of steaks
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 we can give them a place to play and be comfortable that would be good.
Right you guys put that downstairs in the in the freezer I mean the dinette
go to the playground. Right it's fine. Yeah, that's their right to bluntly you don't expect them to sit through an hour lecture honestly. With give
No place to do it. There's like a little cleanup
and so a fluff good character is a direct result of the opinion of their email and their firm email their, their awareness observance of Allah. You know, Abdullah had Massoud, another of the great great companions he says you're keen to have this firm Imagine
your pain is when you don't this you don't please the people
at the cost of displeasing Allah once again you're 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. That's another character trait that's part of your team. Something is Allah the one that gives them the gift, so why would I hate them for it?
And he says Rahim, Allah, Allah, Allah from this route, 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 Allah realize that you're dealing with Allah because if you try to be angry at Allah's decisions, he gave me this guy rich and this guy smart and he's like looking at Allah is 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 the way it was. Did you know that's why very, very beautiful, nourish and I've never thought about that one. They asked
him Why are most of the wise people poor?
He said the inocula human risk that because his mind his intellect is part of his risk. That's what Allah gave you. Right? That's why you think the smarter people would be rich. But the smartest people many times their poor his Yeah, because Allah gave this guy money to give this guy intellect. Let's have the signs of Allah and His earth. You'd 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 Allah azza wa jal 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 Allah that Allah is going to repay? You're not really giving it to them? He's not taking your money from you. It's rather Allah azza wa jal, who's taking a loan from you so he can give it back to you not because he needs it, obviously.
I didn't know if he thought about the Lavon. who, when he meant when a man approached him in the markets and asked him for money, he sent the message home to his wife, all the Mallanna we hardly have anything. We have like six
little homes left silver coins left. He said bring them
and he gave them to the men.
And he said to his wife, there are persons Iman is not complete until he's more confident in what Allah has done. He is not he has just the tests.
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 114 Doohan. 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 didn't learn it all him later on, found the man that he sold him the camel and he sold him the camel for 200 to 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? This is the Promise of Allah, 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. This is the act of UCLA testing me with them.
That's why Roman Hatha Yoga one 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 under ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala 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 and was a mastermind. He really was. He was the this the strategizing mind of the person gender
so when Mahan won many of the battles one of the captains started out doovy Oh man we call it the Hormuz and himself, right.
And I'm one of the Levant brings him forward.
And this man, by every means, according to every country standards, even in 2015 deserve to die.
Sorry, the Allahu Anhu
came forward and HOMOs and said Are you going to combine for me between death and thirst? He knows that the Muslims are good to their captives. And this is what the Prophet SAW Selim towards. 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 Morozov takes the water in his hand, this trembling.
He's scared. And then he says Sumo, 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 Hormozgan does what he's not going to kill me to drink the water. He spills the water on the floor.
You get killed with a drink. He knew that aroma was a man of his word.
So I'm gonna Gila and it's like, okay, so this guy in prison to figure out what else we can do. Right? He refused to kill him at home was that at that point that a chateau La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah becomes a Muslim.
Outwardly at least there's 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 that 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 not the Allahu Taala on.
You know, I don't even know what they love. And also during this Khilafah a Jewish man
stole his shield, the shield he used to use in the battles.
And so Ali is the Khalifa imagine this guy's the president. But imagine the love that 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 us Ohio. That's why I'm putting the lights of the series together. There is nothing like it's really
anyhow, I leave the Allah Who
takes this Jewish man to court. He's the funny figure that guy killed right in the press. Will you still Oh my God. He takes him to court. There has to be due process. There has to be justice. Nobody is above the law, not even the Khalifa himself.
And so the judges says So Ali, Allah Allah, Allah we pleases. Oh, 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, No, I don't have any proof that a spy can't prove it. Though it says when he couldn't prove it.
He said to the Jewish man, then swear, because the defendant Alas, do swear and is off the hook. Well, you Amina Allah and uncle, he says and the oath is the duty of the defendant, or though the denial and denying the accusation. So I didn't have the proof that his obligation, he couldn't do it. So the Jewish mantra is, 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 I need to
be alone. He walks out of the courtroom, you think this is this can't be real, right? But the likes of these incidents happened all the time. You know, the Jewish man came after Alina with all of it said, Here's your shield, and he gave it to like, what is it some sick joke and we went through all this? And now and here's my shield. He said, Yes. These are the manners of the prophets. And he became a Muslim madman or the Allahu Taala and it was a flare up and he's standing upon this character and this justice
so it's an obligation on us to practices when we deal with people to realize we are in actuality dealing with who with Allah subhanho wa Taala 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 a model this than this incident for me here now. Allah azza wa jal says, What's your I love our welcome Lee?
baldy Pfitzner can others be rude? What can our bootcamp Basilan? 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 at every moment, that's a test for you, how you can deal with it. And we made you test for one another? Are you going to be patient? When are you 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 can I drop bootcamp, I'll see you and your Lord is Ever Watchful. Some of the relevant and explaining this concept of being
watchful of, of Allah watching you, right?
They said, consider the monster Have 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 Allah behind them. Meaning what we that Allah is the one that put them there. I could have been caught and another red light and a whole bunch of different variables wouldn't have had me meet this person here now, right? I could have gone before in a different generation, I could have had a different way I could have had different kinds of parents, my kids could have been angels, whatever. Every person placed in front of Allah put them there are you gonna 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 Allah, he is dealing with human beings, right?
Sometimes he wished you can just build the tree house, just love
it. Just pray not have to deal with the problems. But that is of the greatest ways to prove to Allah that you're conscious of him, and that you really fear Him, and that you're really going to pull out the stops to please Him.
The hadith says a nurseryman Allah, that the people are the dependence of Allah. Right? How do you stand in front of Allah and Salah 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 a walk with them in front of me and I messed up bed. 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 that have good manners, so you will reciprocate it. Someone has to be conscious of Allah and triggered this. You know, I'll end with
with just one story of our own of a bubble. So another example we'll keep we kept all the examples today of those who haven't intentionally obviously the show you how office this was in their lives.
On unhealed, these types of love
are contagious. A man I had to grab another and drag you in front of the roller with a tarp during this Khilafah. And he said to him almost Oh, no leader of the believer, this guy killed my dad.
Equal retaliation. I want to have death penalty. He said you killed his dad. Yeah, killed his dad. Why did you kill his dad? He said he got on my property. And 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'm one of them. I had no choice. That's all there has to be, you know, 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 is selling no one can care for them. No one has the ability to after Allah but 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 one of the one couldn't do that Justice had to be established. He said and who will guarantee for me
that you will come back, you need a guarantee someone designed for you.
I don't have a guarantee. So 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 sallallahu. It was a this was it was really funny. He says, Oh, my God, 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 fight in them. And musalla his setup slipped and unintentionally killed somebody right or wrong. And he's of the greatest of the believers.
So instead, I will guarantee him
and so the three days pass, and the the appointment comes in, the man doesn't show up.
And above is as stressed as imaginable like I'm gonna kill him with.
The Prophet SAW Selim said nobody walked this green earth. That is true are in there Ilan than Abu Dhabi.
I'm going to have to execute this man. But Justice, justice.
And when the man that didn't show up, and they were about to execute Abu Dhabi,
the man shows up.
And so everybody standing there thinking a little bizarre is about to die. So I'm saying Allahu Akbar Allahu Echota relief, finally relieved, I will notice the assumption of the man was correct. And I will notice life will continue in sha Allah. And from the honesty of this man, right? And the sacrifice of this brother for his brother, this is my test, right? I'm doing this for my brother.
Because of that the family of the victim forgive them and the murderer, 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 Iman 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 I like that because I might faking it or not. Allah sees me here and sees me there. Why does the Hadith say the best of you the best of their family? All 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 Allah as though they see him and if they can't see him they know that Allah sees them upon the Holy Hand. I will still provide all the money but I can also Allah Barnaby, and I'm glad he was on page very hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen
