Often when you meet people who feel like they're an outcast,
it's important that one of the first things you say to them, or prior to saying anything, one of the first things you do is acknowledge their presence by doing the things that our Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us to do you know what the first thing is when the ultimate icebreaker we all know, a Salam or Aleikum?
If they're not Muslim, how you doing? Haven't seen you around? What's your name? And you start to make that person feel like they exist? Because most of the time they don't feel that. So you take it upon yourself. Now, what's the incentive? Why should you do that? Is there a problem rather than just like if I just ignore them, or I don't talk to them or they're not my friend? What's the big deal? Problem is
that if you want to come as close to the etiquettes of our messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then this is part of that picture. You can take some and leave some. If you're Muslim, you're Muslim 100% as best as you can. So it's a responsibility and it's a part of our faith. It's a reflection of E men. When you make your fellow brother or sister or friend in humanity,
feel good about themselves.
