Law he saw the how

00:00:15--> 00:00:19

many Mina mostly me

said I want to label a cartoon.

00:00:24--> 00:01:03

This one 100 Or 100 Local but Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah him Mohammed water early he was a big mind shallow short reminder. Ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us feel amongst they're a bad he's a bad his slaves as Allah says and sort of Zoomer for Bashir, a bad Alladhina yesterday we own our own fire to be our own center give glad tidings to my slaves they are those who listen, not just listen, but they listen attentively, and then they implement what they have heard in the best way possible. I ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make us amongst very bad. I mean, what would it mean? When we say the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we learned about his o'clock we

00:01:03--> 00:01:47

learned the importance of exhibiting and bringing the clock of the Prophet some into our life. But when he saved the life of the prophet saw seven, we learn that there were some characteristics that he had prior to prophet hood, prior to prophet hood, and the all of us, sometimes they expand upon them, and they highlight those why, because you can be as far as you want to be from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. But these are some characteristics that every single individual we need to exhibit. Unfortunately, these are the same characteristics today that are lost, not only in the Muslim community, but across the world. But we don't focus on the entire world. We focus on what is going

00:01:47--> 00:02:29

on in our own Muslim community, what is going on in my life, what is going on within my own society? For example, one of the things that we learned from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is this ability to stand up for justice. When he saw someone that was a victim of oppression, no matter how insignificant that oppression may be, never disappoint. Some just sit back and he just he let he gave it to someone else. They're providing some will stand up himself, and he would fight on behalf of that person. And subhanAllah the Prophet Allah you sound was so unselfish, so unselfish, that in that, after even helping that person, he will never tell that person I helped you. Now you listen to

00:02:29--> 00:03:11

me and you listen to the message of Islam. This is how unselfish Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, and what we learned from this is this, that today, when we see in justices taking place, sometimes we step forward, why? Because I want them to become a Muslim. That is not the reason why we stepped forward. We stepped forward as Muslims, and we fight against injustice, because this is who Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was, but today I want to share I want to highlight some Another characteristic of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that was SubhanAllah. Even before he received or he he had this reputation in the community of, of being a Saudi PL Amin. If you want to

00:03:11--> 00:03:55

hire if you want to summarize these characteristics of the problem in one word, it is honesty. When I say the word honesty, the very first thing that comes to my mind, in your mind is that honesty when we converse with each other, first of all, is that when we talk to each other honesty has to be there. It is not fitting for a Muslim, a person who believes in Allah who believes in the last day who believes in Missoula Salem, who tries to emulate Roswell Salem that they would deceive anyone else. In fact, Ross was some said himself, man was Shana fillet Samina anyone who, who deceives others, anyone who betrays others, they're not from amongst us, because the property is some always

00:03:55--> 00:04:33

promoted the idea of being truthful that providing some always promote the idea of being upfront. being straightforward. Not being disrespectful when I say though, is straightforward. It does not mean that you go and you be disrespectful to someone and you degrade them. That's not what the property is on was. That's not what he promoted. But he promoted honesty, honesty, and when we talk to each other today's to Valhalla, we live in a society. Today still in America is still it is still somewhat better, but Subhanallah you look at our Muslim countries, I'm not going to take names of Muslim countries, because someone you know, any of us can get offended by our Muslim countries.

00:04:33--> 00:05:00

Subhanallah for the most part, when you go there, when you try to talk to people, when you see it's hard to even even exhibit honesty nowadays, this is what the Muslim world has become. When I say honesty, it does not only mean when I talk to each other. Honesty also extends to business when I work with each other when I engage in financial transactions, others Subhanallah How many times do we hear in a community where

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

One person cheated another person, one person cheated another person, one person took a loan from another person and decided not to give that back brother and sisters Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us the story about these people who were in Medina Wei Lin moto Fifi and a Lavina either TyLoo Allah Nursia cell phone way that I can whom I was an on your sit on when they demanded they always demanded in full but when it came time to give, they will always give less. Allah says Allah you know Allah and Muhammad were overthrown have these people not realize that they will have to stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala you may deceive someone else today you may get your way around. But

00:05:40--> 00:06:22

you cannot none of us can deceive Allah subhanho wa Taala when I send me for Allah, Allah knows who I am. Allah knows all the tricks I have in my bag, the tricks I would use against other people the way I would cheat other people. I cannot cheat ALLAH SubhanA wa to honor honesty in talking in conversing, honesty in business, even honesty, when it comes to even giving advice. How many times the Prophet son has taught us God? Dibner Abdullah Radi Allahu Allah Hadith found in Bukhari and Muslim WHAT THE FUCK LA? He says by Allah rasool Allah He said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, I took allegiance on us was a Salam on the hands of the Prophet seven Allah economy Salah on the

00:06:22--> 00:07:07

establishment of prayer, what etha is occur and giving my Zakah oneness highly, coolly Muslim and giving sincere advice and being sincere to other people. We learn check bin bash bin bash Rahmatullah. He gives his own definition of what sincere advice is, he says, We want a philosophy coalition, it is laws and everything that you do. And he says, What are the mala washy? Well, he Anna fie and it is to receive to, to remove any kind of deceit or betrayal. And when you give me advice to others Subhanallah when it comes to us giving advice to others, we give advice. But when it comes to our own self, we always cut out and we always remove and we sometimes it's okay. One is

00:07:07--> 00:07:46

that you don't mention something, that's one thing, but one is that you give wrong advice, because you don't want that person to move ahead of you in this dunya. This is not from the nature of a Muslim. So Subhanallah one thing that we have to all do, brothers and sisters is this concept of honesty SubhanAllah. It is lost within the OMA today, we have to revive this, this is once again not even about Roswaal Salam being honest, after prophet hood. This was he was an honest person before prophet hood, meaning that this is something that we need to really build within our life. And at the end of the day, it's our children who see us when our children see that someone is calling and I

00:07:46--> 00:08:27

told my child to lie. What example am I giving to my child? Today we teach our own children, that if you can go and make a fool out of someone, if you can go and lie to someone, if you can go and deceive someone, you can go and betray someone, mashallah, you are very smart. This is a person who has street smart, this is wrong, will lie, this is wrong. There is nothing wrong in being street smart. You can be street smart, and you can be smart, intelligent, and you don't have to be trade people. And you don't have to lie to other people. And you don't have to deceive other people. But why these are the things that are today we're teaching our children, I understand that we live today

00:08:27--> 00:09:05

in a very unfair, we live in a very dishonest world. But that does not mean that I have the right and that gives me permission to then deceive others and betray others. So this is why Subhanallah we find even the story of shorty writing is so this is one thing that he really again, he hit home. So many times, every single prophet that came they realized that there was a major issue within the Kabira or within the nation that they were sent to. When it came to show everybody in Islam, he realized that when it came to business, they would deceive others, there was a lack of honesty in their life. So I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make us amongst those who are honest, and we have to

00:09:05--> 00:09:41

really exist we have to really bring this into our families, bring this into our life, exhibit this in our own life so that even our children inshallah they will have honesty, if they keep on thinking about it. A person who keeps on lying, who keeps on deceiving others keeps on betraying others. How can this person come close to Allah subhanho wa Taala you want to sit here? You want to come to the masjid and you feel like and not just you I mean any one of us. We feel like that I pray to Allah I do all this. But on the side if I'm doing this, will Allah he is going to destroy what we're doing. I ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make us amongst those who are honest, to raise us on the Day of

00:09:41--> 00:09:47

Judgment amongst those who are honest. I mean, nobody I mean does that Kamala hate us and I'm only going to label catch
