Sir Mr. Legal on to law here Barakatuh Dear audience, I hope you all are doing well. Welcome to another segment of the Hadith of the day, where we take a quote of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, learn from it, expand upon it. And I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he gives us the ability to implement his teachings when it comes to the Salah, so Allahu alayhi wa sallam, as a believer in Him, we need to study his life. The best way to stay the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is through two ways. Either we can study his a hadith, his quotes, his sayings, his a file, or we can study the CETA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And my recommendation

00:00:52 --> 00:01:29

would be is that if you have you ever studied those sort of those sort of Hadith, the science of Hadith, that do not go in that direction, till you have studied the Sierra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he also highlighted the seed are really teaches us a lot. It teaches us so much about every single expedition, every single event. And there are so many lessons to be learned from the seed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I will always recommend that when it came to the seed of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam do not study from a book that only covers the information about the certain incidents, like you'll find a lot of books of Sierra that talk about,

00:01:29 --> 00:02:08

you know, this expedition or this event. And this many people in this would have this is what happened. But I will always recommend is the most important objective of the Sierra the Prophet SAW Salem, is to learn the lessons from the CETA of the province of Salem, and SubhanAllah. If you have this love for the Sierra, and you understand how to derive lessons from the Sierra, that no matter what situation we are in, in our life, we can always extract lessons from the life of the prophet saw Salem, there, yes, there was a certain incident that took place in the life of the prophet. And I learned that from that I learned such lessons from that incident. Now one of the most beautiful

00:02:08 --> 00:02:49

things we learned from the life of the prophet saw Selim about his character, about his demeanor, about his attitude, is that he was a very easy going person. He was very soft in his approach. And, you know, there are people that we find in this dunya that they are very soft in their approach. They're very calm in their tone. They're not very loud at all times. And usually what happens is that people you know, they misjudged them, people will take advantage of them, that is not who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam was SubhanAllah. I mean, the Prophet saw something was nonetheless he was very soft in his approach, but he will never let anyone take advantage of him. At

00:02:49 --> 00:03:31

the same time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a very balanced understanding that there are times when he would get upset, and there are times when he would be firm, he will not be mean, he will not be rude, he will not be disrespectful, but he will be he will be firm. And so it is why this is something that by the way, this this leniency that we find in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala and the prophets of salaam he adopted this leniency and then the Sahaba, they adopted this leniency and what the Prophet sallallahu ala he was sending him what he shares with us today in a hadith This is the Hadith I want to share with everyone today

00:03:31 --> 00:04:24

is a Hadith narrated by a brutal mama Al Baghdadi Rhodiola that I know where he says a how to be a dealer to Allah, He said Allahu alayhi wa sallam that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he took hold of my hand, he grabbed my hand. And then he says for call Eliya Obama, he then said, Oh, mama, in Amin, el Mina, me, lino Lee called boohoo, that there are believers whose hearts are soften for me, meaning that because I in my life, and because my practices exist within them, their personality, they strive to become like me, those who have the life of the prophet in their heart, those who have the character of the Prophet in their life, those who try and they strive to be like

00:04:24 --> 00:04:37

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet alayhi salam is saying that they will be soft in their heart to SubhanAllah. So, the question that I have to ask everyone here is and the question that we need to ask ourselves is this

00:04:38 --> 00:04:59

in my a very abrupt person, in my a person, that people will come close to me because of my personality? Or am I such a person that people will go away from me, people will not want to be around me, you know, And subhanAllah in times like these, when we are you know, we are sort of restricted to our homes

00:05:00 --> 00:05:42

We have to spend a lot of time at our homes. The question is that are we living together like a family or not? Is the is the parents are the parents such that the kids are coming closer to them? Or they're, they're going away from them is the husband is the husband and his character and his demeanor? Is he like Rasulullah, salAllahu alayhi wasallam that people are coming close to him, or they are such fathers that I have come across, and I've heard about that when they come home, everyone runs away. It's like the police officers here. You know, there's a person of trouble that has just walked inside the house, and no one wants to be around them. This is not who Rasulullah

00:05:42 --> 00:06:24

sallallahu alayhi wa salam was, in fact, when explaining this hadith, in a cathedral with Allah La it is the seed. He mentioned this hadith by the way, under the idea that we find the SUTA Ali Imran is number 159, where Allah subhanho wa Taala he talks to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is saying to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Furby ma Rama team mean Allah He lint Allahu Allah says so by the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you were leaning with them. Now here what's interesting to note is that Allah subhanho wa taala. This is an IR by the way, if you look at this context, and you look at what comes before, this is Surah Al

00:06:24 --> 00:07:10

Imran ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala talks about a very unfortunate situation that took place in the Battle of a heart. And what happened was, the Sahaba were given a certain responsibility, and they did not fulfill their responsibility to his fullest. And what happened was that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he suffered, the Muslims suffered many casualties in the Battle of a heart. And you just have to understand that just imagine, just imagine, you know, the Imagine there's a boss, and there was a, you know, something happened in the company. And he's about to go and chew out his employees, because he's been chewed out by his boss too. Now he comes to all his employees, and he

00:07:10 --> 00:07:51

wants to chew all them out, and he wants to get upset with them. Here. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam he's about he wants to get upset with his own Sahaba I gave him a responsibility. I gave you something to do, and you never fulfill that. And because of your actions, and because of your negligence, the Muslims suffered heavy casualties. So the person wants to come to them and get upset with them. But Allah subhanaw taala saying, Wait, no prophet, this is not how you're going to behave with them. In fact, what we find is Allah subhanho wa Taala he uses the word linter Lang this word lint, Allah whom, by the way, comes from the same family as the word lady in this was by the way

00:07:51 --> 00:08:35

that we're laying we find in the Quran, that this was the instruction given by Allah subhanho wa taala, to Musa alayhis salam when he was about to go and give Dawa to fill out. Allah says for hola hola who kawalan Lena? Oh Musa when you talk to fit on, speak to him in a very soft approach in a very soft tone. La Allahu yet adecuado Yaksha perhaps he may come close, perhaps he may learn his lesson. Because when you go to someone and you're very harsh in your nature, a lot of times they will not even listen to your message. They will simply just know they will think to themselves that when will this be over? When will this conversation be over? When was his rant be over? So

00:08:35 --> 00:09:22

eventually Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling the Prophet Salam that when you go to them, you want to be upset, but I'm telling you to be calm with them. And by the way, in the beginning of this, if this word man for Bhima, Rama to mean Allah, this man that comes is mad for emphasis, meaning that Allah subhanho wa Taala saying that this this Rama is coming from Allah. So you might be you might be upset with them, and you may want to get angry at them. But because Allah is full of mercy, as we say all the time. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. He is extremely merciful, constantly merciful. Likewise, if I am merciful, oh prophet of Allah, and I have forgiven them for their actions and

00:09:22 --> 00:09:59

their negligence. Then who are you to go and get upset with them? When you go to them be lenient with them? And then Allah says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whoa, Quinta for one holy Volkl if you are following means you are rude in your speech, you know, there are some people that they you know what we will recall them on the on the street is potty mouths. You know, every time they speak, there is some profanity coming out from their mouth. There is always rude and disrespect that is coming from their mouth. The Prophet SAW someone's being told do not become like that. It was not as if the person was like that. But even the fact that he made

00:10:00 --> 00:10:43

Get his he's gonna get upset Allah subhanaw and saying that do not become rude in your speech, he then says lethal calm. Now one is a person may, you know he may be very you know, he may be respectful in his tone in his speech, but there's a lot of there's a lot of animosity, there's a lot of hate in his heart. Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that if you are rude in your speech, leave oil cold and you are harsh in your heart, because eventually what happens that naturally you may want to be soft, you may want to be respectful, but if your heart is full of hate, then eventually it will become manifest in your speech. So Allah subhanaw taala saying that if you are this way,

00:10:43 --> 00:11:26

l'enfant Dolman Holic, the Sahaba these followers of yours, they will leave you, they will disperse from you. And the word l'enfant do is usually in reference, if you study Arabic grammar is usually associated with the word glass. So you know, when you take a glass and you shatter it on the floor, then there's pretty much no way possible that you can bring all those pieces together and bring it back together in in its original form. You know, when we say that people scattered, people can scatter and then eventually people will come back. But when we talk about glass, it shatters and it leaves and it scatters, and there's no way you can bring it back. So Allah subhanaw taala is telling

00:11:26 --> 00:12:09

the province, Salam that if you have this harsh heart, and you are rude in your speech, eventually people will leave you and they will be they will disperse from you, and they will never come back. And you know Subhanallah one thing that we learned from from this is, it does not matter how knowledgeable a person may be, when it comes to our clock, we have to be, we have to be extremely respectful towards other people. Our clock has to be like the clock have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our demeanor has to be like the demeanor of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I have to say this, especially for all those who are specially in the field of Dawa,

00:12:09 --> 00:12:49

those who are learned people, you know, we find today that many people, they they leave or they don't want to go to people of knowledge because of their character, because the way they get treated, remember the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was sending him a hadith the prophet that how he was when he came to other people. The problem is mentioned in the in the the Shema in other provinces salaam, that whenever he would talk to people, he would give them their full attention. And yes, I even I myself, sometimes I'm guilty of that too. But we all have to learn from this, that when the Prophet saw him, he would meet with someone he would meet with, you know, giving

00:12:49 --> 00:13:28

them their full attention. When the Paulson would talk, he would be softened his approach. When the Paulson was he would talk he would be very concise in his speech. So this is what we need to learn from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala says, because now imagine there's a boss, he says, okay, you know what, I'm going to be soft, I'm going to forgive them. And I'm going to, I'm not going to keep anything in my heart. But I'm not going to show them any kind of favors, or I'm not going to be I'm not going to do any favors for them. Now Allah subhana wa Tada is telling the prophets are setting them that not only should you have a first of all, you should be

00:13:28 --> 00:14:09

soft in your in your speech, do not have a harsh heart. And then after that Allah Subhana Allah is telling the public Salam far for on whom forgive them and by the way for and whom it comes from the same family of the word, our food, like you know, this dua that we recite in Ramadan, Allah who in Nikka foo went to herbal alpha for Anna, this our full means that to forgive someone and do not bring it up like completely forgive and forget, or you forgive in such a way that you don't ever bring it up again. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentioned that when you forgive other people, for Allah Subhan Allah says for Munna alpha will also ha for a Jew Allah if you truly want

00:14:09 --> 00:14:48

your reward from Allah, then forgive and do not ever bring it up again. So Allah subhanaw taala saying that, first of all, to provide you some fodder for on whom was still filler whom he says, Pardon them and ask forgiveness for them. And the means that the problem is some is basically taking the hit for them. And this is what you'd call a leader. And you know, in essence, this entire aisle by the way, it talks about the qualities and the skills of a leader that what does a leader need to be like? So Allah Subhanallah saying that a leader is that type of person, that not only he suffers, but then he takes the hit for that his entire team, Allah subhanaw taala is saying that not only do

00:14:48 --> 00:14:59

you forgive them, but now you seek forgiveness for them to you no one is that the Sahaba should go and seek forgiveness. But Allah subhanaw is telling the person that you seek and seek forgiveness on their part to

00:15:00 --> 00:15:42

And for them, he then says was Shah with whom Phil Omer and continuously consult with them. Now I want to give you an example, let's imagine, there is a boss and you know, imagine you've done something wrong. And you know, you're really you don't know, the boss may be upset with you, he's talking to you. And just imagine you're going through this idea and this, this thought, and then all of a sudden, he calls you. And he says to you that you know, what, I have a certain responsibility, or I have a certain task, I will say, and I want to get, I want to hear your idea, or I want to, you know, consult with you. Now, just imagine, first of all, you may be in hot water, and then all of a

00:15:42 --> 00:16:19

sudden, what happens is that your boss calls you in, and he says, I want to consult with you automatically, automatically, all those feelings that you may have for your boss, they're gone, because automatically you have respect for him, that you know, I may have done something wrong, but instead of him neglecting me, and just pushing me aside, he has called me in and he's consulting with me. So that that in itself you know, that raises respect for a person. So Allah Subhanallah saying to the Prophet it in some ways SHA with whom Phil armour, they you should always consult with him, no matter what happened, continuously consult with them. And then he says for either Assumpta

00:16:19 --> 00:16:53

fatawa Allah Now one is to consult with someone and say, okay, just gonna go ahead, you know, thank you for so much for your opinion. And you know, I'm, you know, I'm going to do what I want to do, once again, that doesn't send a wrong as send the right message to your employee. Now, here, Allah Subhanallah saying that when you make your decision, oh prophet of Allah, then stick to it for you. That is something that when you make a strong intention, then and by the way, Zonta is different than it all that it all that is just an idea that you had Assumpta is a stronger intention, that when you want to do something, you take the steps in order to do something, Allah saying to the

00:16:53 --> 00:17:27

Prophet, alayhi salam for either Assumpta fatawa Allah when you make your decision, then put your trust in Allah subhanho wa taala. And it's not like the word the province or some he would make a decision. And then some days later, he will say, Oh, you know what, I want to go back to my decision, I want to change my decision, because that sends the wrong message to your team also as a leader, so this is what Rasulullah sallallahu it was sending was, and Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, at the end at the end of the iron, he says, in Allah you Hibben whatever kiddin Allah loves those who have to work with and who rely on Allah subhanaw taala. But the reason I shared this ayah

00:17:27 --> 00:18:11

is because even if Athena once again Rahmatullah LA, he he talked about this hadith I shared with you today, abou mama Alba Hedy, under the under this idea of how we should be calm and how we should have a very soft approach. And so once again, I remind myself and everyone here that we need to ask ourselves at the end of the day, that who do we represent, we represent Islam, and who in which and who do we represent in terms of a human being, we represent Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we are to be like a Sula. sallahu it was something in his character, and his demeanor. And the question is, once again, that what kind of person am I? Am I a person that people like to come? And

00:18:11 --> 00:18:48

people like to be around me? Or am I that kind of person that as soon as I walk into a room, everyone disperses? That's the question we need to ask ourselves. And so I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he gives us the character like Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanaw taala make us as close as to we can get to those who also Allahu Allah He was seller, may Allah subhana wa Taala make us in every aspect of our life like Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in terms of his brother in terms of his mom, Allah, His Mashallah. And the way he will be with his family. So Allah subhanho wa Taala to not only make us and give us the ability to be like Rasulullah

00:18:48 --> 00:19:32

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but we ask Allah, that on the Day of Judgment, May He make us amongst those who are close to us who was also on the Day of Judgment. May Allah subhana wa Taala grant us the companionship of US law some along with our families in the hereafter amenable Allah mean, Zach Mala had one last thing I want to advise everyone is that as you all know, we are going through this pandemic. And one thing here we do at Epic is we always try to ensure that no matter what is going on, we try to provide programs for the entire community, and not only our community, for the greater larger society, and for the people all over the world. And say, having said that, I do encourage all

00:19:32 --> 00:19:59

of you that in times like these, do give whatever you can for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala donate generously as we learn from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that one the best of the cause that we can give is when times are tough. And so in times like these, when people are being laid off and I ask Allah that may Allah subhanho wa Taala helped me immensely, but in times it is giving something for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada is very dear and very beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:20:00 --> 00:20:03
