Number one, constantly smiling.
Our Prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam would constantly smile. Smiling is a really interesting quality to have. Because when you smile, without saying anything without moving or doing much, you immediately welcome the person or people around you. You become approachable. People can talk to you they feel comfortable with you. And this is without even sparking a conversation. And then Companions would constantly described that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam had the most beautiful smile, to the point that some of the companions said his smile was even more beautiful than a full moon.
And as a result, Allah blesses you with humility.
Number two, shaking hands, but not being the first to let go. Now I know that's difficult during these times, but shaking the hands our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. Whenever he shook hands with his companions, he would always be the last person to let go. And the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam taught us that there are many blessings by doing this. It looks like a simple and trivial act. But it is great. And it is blessing in the sight of Allah to the point where our Prophet alayhi salatu salam tells us that even with the shaking of the hands and greeting each other with a Salam or any pleasant greeting, Allah azza wa jal continues to forgive you and shower you with
forgiveness. May Allah azza wa jal bless us with that always and forever Allah whom me you number three,
paying attention and not interrupting,
paying attention to a conversation without interruption again, the classic example of our messenger SallAllahu it was salam. This was one of the things about him. As to why he became so approachable companions never felt shy to come to him and ask him questions to talk to him about the most personal matters. Because he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam despite the status and the individual, the person that he is, would always make time for those who needed him. And when he sat with these companions, and had a conversation, he would listen first and foremost before saying anything. So giving that respect that love and that attention tells a lot about humility as you as the
individual. And so you find this throughout the Sunnah and even in the Koran.
