As he grew a fine young lad,
he was known as the trustworthy.
He was known as the truthful, the trustworthy.
And it was amazing. He had a status in community and society, from a very young age where they called on him at times in order to help them judge in disputes.
On one occasion, there was a dispute regarding the stone, the black stone, when they were rebuilding the cabinet, and who exactly should carry it, which tribe is more deserving of it. They called Nabina, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wasn't even a prophet yet. But prior to that, when he was much younger, and they decided we're going to ask him, and whatever he says, We will do. And he solved the matter in such a beautiful way. He asked the leader of every one of the tribes to hold a piece of the cloth, and their stone was placed in the middle and all of them carried it to the Kaaba, and then he took it with his hands and placed it in its place.
So that is something unique. They trusted him with this, and it was the gift of Allah for him. salallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is to everyone and grant us a lesson. You might be known as a trustworthy and honest person. But one day when you say something that people don't agree with, or they don't like, everything will change, and take it in your stride. That must not make you give up the truth or your honesty. But it is a lesson in the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for you and I to continue in the obedience of Allah.
