Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah my brothers and sisters, you will have to at some stage interact with the opposite sex and even those who are not related to you, you will have to at some point as a human being, when you walk, when you perhaps might go to a public place, in public transport, maybe at a place of the marketplace, or wherever else it may be maybe at the doctor's, at the pharmacies, at school, at university, wherever it may be, you will have to interact at some point with the opposite sex those who are not related to you, and not Muharram How should you interact with them? I tell you, there is one word very respectfully, you might say those are two words. Well, very is only
descriptive but when it comes to respectfully you need to understand that's the word be very respectful, treat them as though they are you know, the the the favor of Allah upon you the opportunity Allah has given you to address the opposite sex, it should be absolutely respectful. It's an act of worship, to respect others. And don't ever address a person in a very cheap way, in a very derogatory way, vulgar, abusive, etc. Or just without having any shame, you know, shameless way people just address others as though they have no scruples May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us an understanding. So I am here today to tell you please respect the opposite sex and even the same
gender, respect all human beings, make sure when you address them, you bear in mind all the rules and regulations, you know, the rule of controlling your gaze and lowering it the rule of speaking in a good tone, choosing good words, getting to the point you know, not saying that which is unnecessary irrelevant, going into perhaps details that are embarrassing and so on that which is unnecessary, putting people into a spot in, you know, in a corner and so on. Remember that let's speak to others respectfully, we will have to interact, I interact, you interact, we all have to interact. I don't know of anyone who says I've never had to in my life or will never have to
interact with the opposite sex. You will. You're a human being and you need to do so respectfully. You need to understand the regulations, the rules, to the best of your ability and capacity, you will address them and inshallah use the best way is because Allah is watching, and whatever you've said is recorded and it will be held for you or against you, wouldn't you like on the Day of Judgment, beautiful book to come out? And this is the way you address the opposite sex. Every word you said is held for you and not against you. May Allah subhanho wa Taala let that happen for us. Aku Kohli hada sallallahu wasallam Allah Baraka Allah Nabina Muhammad wa salam aleikum wa
