Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh similar men are human hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah him Hamid wala earlier he was a hobby of mine about Welcome to another segment of Padova tuna, our role model the model of excellence Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in the series once again we're talking about how did the Prophet saw someone treat every type of person in his community. Today inshallah we're talking about how did the Prophet alayhi salam treat his adversaries? How do the properties I'm treat his enemies how to the Prophet SAW Allah awesome. Treat those people in the community who are openly against the mission of the

00:01:00 --> 00:01:38

Prophet alayhi salam, first of all, is that we learned that there was no such thing called the people who were opposing the Prophet it is time that they were ever respectful to the Prophet alayhi salam, they will always use every opportunity to hurt the Prophet sallahu wa salam, whether it was through the misuse of their tongue, whether it was physically they will always try to hurt the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Nonetheless, Allah subhanho wa Taala taught the Prophet Allah Islam instructed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in in essence Allah is also telling us the same thing when the property is set up is being insulted Allah is telling him first da be my tumor

00:01:38 --> 00:02:18

what are the animals should again that just ignore and put aside what these people are saying to you? Well aka the NA lm n Nikki de casa de roca be Maria alone. We know that when they say things that are very hurtful, it pains the heart and hurts the heart. But at the same time, remember in cafe nachliel, Mooster has eaten that we are sufficient against these people who are making a mockery of you mean that Allah is saying that there is no need for you to do anything. There is no need for your Sahaba to do anything. I will take care of the matter we will take care of the matter. And then Allah subhana wa Tala he will constantly consoled the prophesies seven by saying for some

00:02:19 --> 00:03:03

behind the Rebecca, welcome Mina sardine and that we remember Allah subhanho wa Taala glorify Allah subhana wa to Allah wa Bucha Rebecca Hata yatta yatta yatta until the last day, till the day of the day you depart from this dunya remember in worship Allah subhanho wa Taala now Subhanallah even in this day and age, we have people who will say very negative things, very disrespectful things about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam today Subhanallah we live in we are living in a time where people are at times, creating a competition not just far from here from this Masjid actually, several years ago, there was a there was an a program that took place by people who were against the

00:03:03 --> 00:03:42

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa Salaam and what did they do? They created a program about who can draw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it was an actually a competition that took place. Not only that, but we find that there are many news news agencies, newspaper agencies around the world media outlets, that they do nothing but they they say very nasty and very derogatory things about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So what are we supposed to do in that kind of situation? What would the Prophet saw some do in that kind of situation? This is why we are learning this. So what do we do? The very first thing that we learned from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:03:42 --> 00:04:28

sallam is that we never Repel evil with evil. See if these are people who are through their ignorance, and through their arrogance, if they are doing something that is wrong, if I simply come and I come on to their level, and I behave the way they are behaving, then what's the difference between them and what's the difference between me that is why the Prophet saw some taught us never Repel evil with evil always repel the evil with good Allah subhanho wa Taala says wala tester will hacer natto want to say ie the ability here acid. Think about this, even today, if there were if the property you saw was present here today, and you have people who are trying to out of disrespect of

00:04:28 --> 00:04:59

the Prophet of Salem, they're trying to draw the prophesy center, they're trying to make a mockery of the prerelease and they're saying such you know such vile things about the Prophet SAW Salem, do you really think that today the way the Muslims are behaving? Subhanallah you see that you know, in many countries, they will go and burn down shops, they will burn cars and they would kill people and so forth. In the name of what in the name of Islam will lie it does not make any sense. Yes, I'm not saying that we should not be hurt. If someone says something disrespect

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

About the Prophet, yes, we should be heard, and that is a sign of our iman. But at the same time that we come down to the level where we are acting in their way, in fact, we do even more damage many times. This is not the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In fact, we find that one time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was at home, and there were some people, we find in Medina, that there were some Jewish people who were very hostile towards the Prophet sallallahu ala he was setting them and one time they were passing by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I Isha was there with with him and they said, instead of saying a salam Wa alaykum

00:05:38 --> 00:06:18

which means that may peace and blessings be upon you. They said Assam or alaykum which means in Arabic that may death be upon you. Now the Prophet SAW Allah or your son, what did he do? The only thing he did was he says, What are they come? And it'd be on you that's all he said. And I shall have the Aloka energy setting with the Prophet SAW Selim. And she begins to say back exactly what they said. And she began to say a somewhat la calm, she began to say the same exact thing. And the Prophet saw some is telling I Isha that do not be harsh. Oh, ah Isha. Be gentle. Do not be vulgar. These are not the ways this is not my way. And I shouldn't say yellow Sula. Didn't, you know hear

00:06:18 --> 00:06:57

what they said to you? And the Prophet alayhi salam said that I heard perfectly well what they said to me, but this is not the way that we Repel evil with evil, we Repel evil with good, they said what they had to say I responded by saying what alikhan And I know that Allah responds to my call my daughters that Allah will not respond. And Allah will not accept their their sayings. So this is why we always learn that number one, when it comes to people who are against Islam, who will say things against Islam, who are created lies against Islam, they create lies against the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. First thing is that we don't ever Repel evil with evil, but we Repel evil with

00:06:57 --> 00:07:36

good. The second thing is that we should always do is we pray for their guidance. This is something that we always see from the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and without going into a lot of detail, we all are aware of the story of thought if the Prophet alayhi salam, he went there, he stayed there for a week, a little over a week, and when he saw that they were not taking his message he left but on his way out, they cause pain and they hurt Rasul Allah, Allah sent him very in a very significant way. And then what at the end of the story we all know that he made dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala Jubilee Radha Islam comes to the Prophet it gets set up and he brings

00:07:36 --> 00:08:16

with him the angel who is appointed, who is appointed regarding the mountains, and he is appointed to, he has control. He's in control of the mountains, and he says the yellow Sula, this angel, he's in control of the mountains, if you want, you say the word and he will collide and bring together the both mountains and all these people in the middle will be crushed. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, despite all that he had been through, what did he do? He prayed for their guidance. He said the May Allah subhana wa Tada forgive them, may Allah give them an understanding. And he says Alehissalaam that perhaps today they may not believe in me, but one day inshallah The time will

00:08:16 --> 00:08:55

come, that they will believe in me as Subhanallah this is this is exactly what happened. We also find that you have people like Abu Jamal, who had caused so much pain to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, yet the Prophet sallallahu either somebody is making dua to Allah, that oh Allah strengthen Islam, either through the Islam of Abuja hall or the Islam of Ahmed Radi Allahu taala. And, and we know that Allah accepted the Prophet li sums dua in favor of Ahmed even a hotdog or the Allah to the on. So this is Subhanallah, we learned from the Prophet alayhi salam, that we should make dua. Now, does that mean that the prophet is I'm never made dua against his opponents? Yes, he

00:08:55 --> 00:09:35

did at times, but there was always the first opportunity, the beginning opportunities, or the very beginning, it was always a priority. So I'm making dua for these people. And when these people they will never take a lesson they will never learn from the Prophet SAW Selim and they will always very staunch enemies of Islam, that is when the prophets are some he would say things at times against them. But we find in most cases throughout his life, that the Prophet Allah, he always took the side of love over hate forgiveness over taking revenge, and this is who the Prophet alayhi salam was. Another thing that we can do when it comes to the artificers of Islam is that always try to

00:09:35 --> 00:09:59

understand that today. They may not be Muslims, but perhaps someone in their lineage or someone in their family may become a Muslim one day and this is something that it can happen to anyone and this is why this goes back to what I said earlier, making dua for them. The story of to find a dose here on the Autobahn is a perfect example. He comes to the Prophet SAW Selim, he's a leader of his community, his

00:10:00 --> 00:10:39

under this impression that when I go I snap my fingers, I tell my community, I have accepted Islam, you should accept Islam, but that's not what happened. And when he went to his community, they turned him away. They never gave into what he was offering them which was Islam and to find even Ahmed he comes back to the Prophet Allah He has some and he says what he says yeah Rasul Allah make dua against them. Pray against them today. Subhan Allah how many times we find people just opening making dua that Allah Allah destroy these people destroy these people? Once again, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala In fact, you know, my teacher, he's we used to always learn from our teachers,

00:10:39 --> 00:11:21

that he used to always make this dua that Oh Allah, free this land free earth from all the volley moon, first of all, give them hedaya. But if he Daya is not destined for them, then clear that clean this earth from the volley moon, and this is, you know, subhanAllah in my own personal opinion, I think this is a very beautiful dua that we all can make. At the same time, the Prophet SAW Selim, when he's being told by to fail that make dua against my people, what did the Prophet alayhi salam do? He raised his hands, and he says, Allahu mathey, those who had to be him that Oh Allah, guide dose, give them guidance, bring them to you, oh, Allah subhanho wa taala. And think about this. I

00:11:21 --> 00:12:03

mean, this is Subhanallah truly remarkable if you think about this, why? Because 10 years later, 10 years later, to failover Ahmed, he comes with his entire tribe, to Medina, and they are accepting Islam on the hands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and lo and behold, there was a man in that tribe, who stayed with the Prophet SAW Selim afterwards, he never went back to those he stayed with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he learned from the Prophet SAW Salem, he was from the US Hagia Sophia, and he always would just absorbed from the Prophet sallallahu ala Sena, and lo and behold, this man was none other than Abu Huraira while the Allahu Taala I'm the man who has

00:12:03 --> 00:12:45

narrated V most a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, can you just simply imagine had the property isn't made dua against those and had Allah destroyed those would we have an Abu Huraira will Allahu Allah, but we will not have an Abu Huraira. This is why instead of making dua, against the people make dua for them and perhaps, if not two days, sometime down the road, someone from their family, some someone from their, from their relatives may convert to Islam. That's why making dua is very important. Another thing that we also learn is separating the hate from the person. See, in the time of the Prophet saw some we all know the story of washi, the man who took the life of the

00:12:45 --> 00:13:23

beloved uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when why she came to the Prophet alayhi salam, now the Prophet it is some he's still a very hurt, he can remember about that day, the day of a hood. And when when she comes to him, he could have just simply turn washy away and say, You know what, I don't even want to see you stay away from me stay away from my companions. But that is not who the Prophet it is on was, and at the end, the day he died is not the decision of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he Daya is the decision of Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is why he came to the Prophet alayhi salam, he wants to convert to Islam, he has this feeling that

00:13:23 --> 00:14:02

Allah will not forgive him, Allah sent down yet after a year to console and to give this assurance to watch that Allah will forgive him. And then later on we do find in the seed of the Prophet, that when washy would come the Prophet Allah has some will not kick him out, he will not say you know, he will not tell the Sahaba that remove this man, he will say that, Oh, washy when you come to my gathering, simply sit on the side. Because when you sit in front of me and I look at you in ICU, it brings back that memory when I saw my uncle and his body mutilated. And that's, you know, that's why I request you just sit on the side And subhanAllah washy he understood. And so this is why we

00:14:02 --> 00:14:42

learned that we should always separate the characteristic from the person. A lot of times we come across a person who is very violent against Islam, and we began to hate that person. Once again, we should not hate the person we should not dislike the person disliked that characteristic that he is against Islam. He's saying derogatory things about Islam, but we need to learn how to separate the two. Finally, the last thing that we can do and what we have seen for the Prophet alayhi salam, how he treated his adversaries is that do not ever hold grudges. We learned that a man who existed in Medina by the name of Abdullah bin obeyed in saloon, a man who was a leader of the monarchy thing,

00:14:42 --> 00:15:00

the hypocrites, and how many times he heard the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the story of if that were I showed you a lot on edge, there is a slander against her. There is a rumor against her and it was a beloved obey who was at the forefront of that rumor. There were so many times where Ebola

00:15:00 --> 00:15:37

When obey will try to divide and cause friction and division within the Sahaba, the hola to nine home, and you can go back and look at the deceit of southern mafia on and so forth. But we learned that even after he had passed away, his son came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and what did the Prophet do? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he got up, he took off his shirt, and he gave it to his son. And he says, Put this on your father, and later on Allah subhanho wa Taala he revealed to the Prophet alayhi salam, that you will not prey upon these people ever again. Because the Prophet saw some he preyed upon him and even he wants to make is still fight for him.

00:15:37 --> 00:16:18

And Allah subhana wa Tada says, in the stokfella home Sabrina Mara, filleting, yo Phil Allahu Allah home, even if you want to seek forgiveness on their part, you can seek forgiveness so much on for them and on behalf of them, but Allah will not forgive them. So this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not holding that grudge, even we find in Makkah, after the Prophet alayhi salam made hijra to Medina, he kept the olive oil the yellow time back in Makkah, and he said that even though these people who are against me, they are after my life, I have some Amana of theirs in my home, I have their trust at home. And it was not as if the property is I'm saying that these people

00:16:18 --> 00:16:47

are against me. I'm going to take their trust, and I'm going to keep it for myself and I'm going to use it based on the way I like no brothers or sisters. The property son was above that. He was above all that amenity. And what do you do? He told Ali that all the time that go take all this belongings and give it and disperse all the Amana and then you come to Medina, this is who the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam was. So next time we come across someone who may be an enemy of Islam, someone who is

00:16:48 --> 00:17:27

is against the deen of Islam, someone who is going to rile up others, someone who is going to create lies against Islam and we find many people like that, whether they're in media, whether they're in our society, whether they are amongst our politicians, remember that the prophets of Psalm has taught us how to treat these kind of people how to look at them, and what to what to do in those kinds of cases. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he gives us the ability to behave like the Prophet SAW Selim. And let let we ask Allah that He gives us ability to deal with our matters the way in every single circumstance of life the way we have learned from the property he said, I'm your

00:17:27 --> 00:17:31

blind me, there's a common law As salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

00:17:43 --> 00:17:44

water he wants to label this nema.

00:17:56 --> 00:18:00

In Medina, you know, Allah wants to

00:18:01 --> 00:18:01

know more.
