salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge marine about Welcome to another segment of boudoir tuna a role model Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and once again the series is about how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he treated the people around him. You know Subhanallah one of the things that we learned about the Sierra the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that in the beginning days of the Sierra, when the Prophet saw some began to call people to Allah subhanho wa taala. It is mentioned that there were some certain chiefs of the

00:01:00 --> 00:01:36

Quraysh they came to the zoo, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they began to they began to make compromises and they came to negotiate with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And one of the things that the province has always wanted was that more and more people to come into the fold of Deen, one of the things that we also find is that the Prophet Sam, he wanted the Chiefs have the courage, the leaders have the courage to come into the fold of Deen, perhaps when they become Muslims, everyone else will become Muslims. So the Prophet saw him, he will always go to them, he will talk to them and so forth. And they would in many cases, they would, you know, sometimes

00:01:36 --> 00:02:14

there'll be violent with Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi, wasallam. Sometimes, they were non negotiable. Sometimes they were just very rude and disrespectful. And it's mentioned in some books of CEDAW, that, in the beginning days, when majority of the people who are coming into Islam were those who were poor, those who were considered as foreigners in Makkah, they were coming from other places, there were many times slaves, many times, they were those who did not have, they were not so financially well off. And so Subhanallah, this was considered as a knock against us who was awesome, this was considered as sort of a blemish in one way towards Rasulullah, sallAllahu wasallam, that

00:02:14 --> 00:02:57

all the people who don't have anything, they don't have a status, they don't have money, they don't have anything. Those are the people who are following this man. And as much as some books that the Prophet SAW Allah, some was once approached by these people, the leaders of the corporation, they said that, okay, if we do convert to Islam, is it possible that one day, you go and you sit with them, and one day you sit with us, meaning that they were trying to separate the rich and the poor, they were trying to separate those who did have versus those who did not have, and there was probably something in Ross was awesomes mind that was going on, because once again, he wanted these

00:02:57 --> 00:03:39

people to accept his thumb. So there was something in his mind that was sort of, you know, that may have lean him towards this idea. But Allah subhanho wa Taala made it very clear to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that under no circumstances under any under no situation, are you allowed to leave these people in, go around and be with them, meaning that if they want to accept Islam, they're going to come and they're going to have to leave their egos at the door, and they're going to have to sit with everyone else. And once Rasulullah sallallahu is, um, he got this message from ALLAH SubhanA what the honor, from this point onward or silvassa, made sure that everyone is to

00:03:39 --> 00:04:19

be felt that they are part of the community where our community is not going to be divided based on race. Our community is not going to be divided based on social status, financial status, everyone is going to be with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this is one of the most beautiful things that we learned about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that if you ever, if you were to go back in time, and just witnessed the gathering of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we will find the rich and the poor together, we will find those who had places to live versus those who did not have a place to live and they were living inside the Masjid. In other words, the Alzheimer's

00:04:19 --> 00:04:59

sufferer, they were all sitting together, everyone would eat together, everyone would be around each other. There was no distinction amongst the people based on these kinds of things. And this is how Rasul Assam he brought together a community today, unfortunately, is very sad that when it comes to us individually, we want to be around only those who have money. We want to you know, when it comes to people who have money, we will know their names, we will know about their life who will take more interest in their life. Why? Because they have money, or they have a social status or they have connections. And so we want to be only around those kinds of people.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:38

And imagine if there was a person who came to us for help. And they did not have a social status. They were not very well known in the community, they probably did not have so much money they were not so financially well off when we give our attention to them or not. That's the question we need to ask ourselves. And I can confidently say that for majority of us, the answer is no, we will not give them our time. We will not give them more attention, unfortunately. Now the reason I share this with you is because I want to share with you how Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam dealt with those people who were socially disconnected. How did the problem treat those people who were viewed as an

00:05:38 --> 00:06:24

outcast, how their problem treat those kinds of people who felt that they have no self esteem, there were so hard there were people in the time of the province that they had no self confidence. They had no self esteem. In fact, they thought they thought of themselves to be so low, so low, and in those kinds of situations, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would make them feel valuable, he would make them feel that they are part of the community. Let me share with you a story about a companion by the name of Valhalla Viola that I'm now via Rhodiola anion. He was a person that in fact his name was Zaha Xia had been his arm or, or haram. This is one of the things that we

00:06:24 --> 00:07:02

find, but nonetheless we find this person Zaheer. He was a person who was not living in Medina. He used to live outside of Medina, but every time he would come to Medina, for the purpose of business, he would always bring a gift for the Salah, Salah who it was sent him he will always first go and meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he would proceed to the marketplaces and do his buying and selling over there. And he will always bring a gift. It just so happened that one day he came, and he did not find Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam in Medina movie, perhaps he was at home and so forth. So he then decided to go to the marketplace. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:07:02 --> 00:07:44

sallam was informed that Zaha has come to Medina and he's looking for you. Now Rasulullah sallallahu some understands this man's predicament. The problems are some understands that what this man goes through psychologically. And what is mentioned also in the Hadith, narrated by NSW Malika Viola on was that he was not a very good looking person. In fact, many people, they will look at him and they will turn their first face away because of his his appearance. So it just so happened that he was in the marketplace and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to him. And he grabbed him from the back, he grabbed him from the back. And think about this, you know, when someone comes to you, you

00:07:44 --> 00:08:24

know, long time ago, sometimes someone could come and grab you. But sometimes you don't nowadays, people they will come and they will put their their hands over your eyes. And then you'll begin to you know, you began to play this guessing game that who could it be? And who could it be? So this so the Prophet SAW Salem and Zaha does not know, but the problem is some comes and he grabs him from behind. And he begins to say, me yesterday, money had logged, who will buy this slave from me. Now this, you know, Zion, he's in this situation, he's already going through this trauma that how people treat him and how people look at him and so forth. And then now he's, you know, he's, there's an

00:08:24 --> 00:09:05

attempt to be, you know, that he's being sold as a slave. And when I saw some, he said this, and he began to say that he goes, Don't Get off of me govern me, I'm not a slave. And the problem is, I'm kept on saying the man yesterday, mini had an odd loser by this day for me. And then he began to focus on the voice, the voice, and he realized that it was none other than Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now when he turned around Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he greeted him. He had a smile on his face. He was so happy to see us all here are the ultra ion. Bizarre, he then says something interesting to the province of some he says, the yellow Sula, even if I was a slave,

00:09:05 --> 00:09:58

even if I was a slave, who would purchase me Look at me, I have like this is a VAR head, this is him at the peak of his, you know, lack of confidence, his the peak of having no self esteem. And he says that who would buy me even if I was a slave, look at me, who would buy me as a slave, I am nothing I am worthless. And upon that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that Zaha said you may view yourself as not valuable in the eyes of people, but you are very much valuable in the eyes of Allah subhana wa Tada Subhanallah I mean, what a beautiful genuine man Rasulullah saw Saddam was I mean a person who does not have he feels like there he's nothing. He's nothing to the community.

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

He's nothing to the society. He

00:10:00 --> 00:10:44

knows that even if he was a slave, he has still no value. And Rasulullah saw Salam, he brings that value to Him, He treated Him in such a way that after this, think about how Zahira Dawn, he felt that yes, I may not be nothing in front of people, but I am certainly something in front of the in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala I am someone in front of Allah subhanaw taala. And in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala brothers and sisters, this is who Rasulullah saw some was today, we come across so many people who have nothing going on in their life, some people may come to you and say that, you know, they express that they have a lack of confidence, a lack of you know, self esteem,

00:10:44 --> 00:11:22

and they feel like that there are of no good. If you and I we behave like Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, we will show their worth to them, we will show their value to them, we will make them feel like that they are a part of the community and so forth. And this is who the Prophet alayhi salam was, as I said earlier, imagine if you and I we ever came across someone like that, would we ever give them our time? Would we ever give them our attention and so forth, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he showed us that this is how people there are people who have money, there are people who have everything going on in their life, find Alhamdulillah Hey, may

00:11:22 --> 00:11:58

Allah give them more, I mean, but there are people like this, like the like, Zaheer of Yolanda and who did not feel like they were anything in the community in the province, someone he made them feel like they are part of the community, the province some show them this love. And one thing I forgot to mention is that whenever he would come and he will bring a gift to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet saw some he will return a gift to him to the person will always give him a gift, as a parting gift. Whenever he would leave Medina, he would always give him a gift, he felt that he was something. So next time we're ever in this kind of situation, we know exactly what to

00:11:58 --> 00:12:34

do. Next time when you go to a gathering. And you may you know, a lot of times we go to gatherings, we you know, we we, you know, we look at the place, we scan the place. And we look for the tables where you have the most amount of your buddies, your friends, or people where there's a lot of money, mashallah, on that table there are people mean that there's a lot of people who are very well off, we want to be around on that table. Next time when you go and you see a table, that there might be some few people who are sitting there. They might be you know, nobody's in the community might they might not be even well known in the community. Just go and sit with them. Because if the

00:12:34 --> 00:13:03

province of Saddam was here, he would do something like that he would be around these kinds of people. And Allah subhanaw taala told him that anytime you feel like you're not around them and you're not to be around them, think twice Do not ever treat these kinds of people. In that way. I ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us the luck of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala make the Prophet some truly our codeword tuna immunoblot I mean is that Kamala Hi salaam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
