said I'm on equal Maura Hunter law he over cattle, this man are human hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam o Allah Rasool e Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jumari and I'm about you know, Subhan Allah when we study the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam something that we should all be doing. One thing that we learn is that prior to even the Prophet alayhi salam, giving the hour and focusing on the hour and so forth, along with the Dawa, to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made sure that he was able to institutionalize rights for people in the community. The province has someone talked about how to deal with people, the province of some taught people

00:01:05 --> 00:01:47

how to treat other people, even before the provinces so Allah while he was some even became a prophet. We see from his demeanor from his character, that how do he care for the other people? There are people in the community, the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose rights were eat were openly being neglected. The Quran tells us how the orphans were treated for that you can levy your dog earlier team, the team and the orphans were being pushed away. And they were they were not able to defend themselves in such a chaotic kind of situation. The one of beautiful things about Islam is not just the fact that Islam taught us that we believe only one Allah is not about

00:01:47 --> 00:02:32

Islam, what makes us so amazing that we have solid and we have the Quran all these things. Yes, they are in their place. Yes, they have a certain position in our deen. But one of the most beautiful things about our deen is that Islam has taught us how to conduct our affairs at every single juncture of life. And especially when it comes to interacting with other people, when it comes to interacting with my parents when it comes to interacting with my children. And when it comes to interacting with my my spouse when it comes to interacting with my children, my neighbors, my community members, my you know, if I am employee, how do I work with others? How do I work with my

00:02:32 --> 00:03:14

employer, if I am an employer, if I am a boss, then what do I do in that kind of situation? That is, that is what we find so beautiful about our deal is that Islam has taught us how to fulfill other people's rights. And the reason I'm sharing this is because once again, this is a series of the best and the worst. And there's a hadith mentioned in a Buddha magia, which is a sahih Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, the best of the people are those who are the best and fulfilling the rights of other people. Today Subhanallah we have become a very selfish community, we have become a very selfish society. This society teaches us that you only worry about yourself, if

00:03:14 --> 00:03:55

others are not fulfilling your rights, you need to stand up for yourself. And our society teaches us that we become so about myself, it's me, myself and I And subhanAllah. Today, when you find people in families, they have a conflict with each other, at the crux of the problem is going to be what that everyone feels like that they have not fulfilled the rights of me, they have not shown respect to me and so forth. And the reality that we need to ask ourselves and the reality is that the question we need to ask ourselves is that how much have I fulfilled the rights of other people? You know, how much am I fulfill the rights of my children? How much am I for the rights of my spouse?

00:03:55 --> 00:04:36

Today? SubhanAllah. And I have to be really honest, and really open about this. I know that this is considered as a very sensitive topic. But think about this. A child one came once came to trauma. Actually, it was a father who came to Oman, Qatar, well, the yellow line, and he's complaining about his child, just like you know, we see this picture happening over and over again, parents coming you know, they're telling, they're telling the mom and so forth, my child is extremely disobedient, so forth. Now Omar, even a couple will be allowed to and he was extremely wise in his approach. As a ruler, you will always listen to both sides of the story. And so he calls a child and he says that,

00:04:36 --> 00:05:00

you know, your father is complaining about you. And he's saying that you do not fulfill his rights and you don't show him respect and so forth. And this child said that, oh, I'm human. You know, what we learn from the hadith is that first of all, is that you should have a good you know, a person should have a good wife so that that wife is going to become the mother of your children. And he married you know, without going detail

00:05:00 --> 00:05:39

Have you not married the right person? And then number two is that he never gave me a good name and so forth. And I want to know how far well the Athan. He's listening to the story. And he puts the blame back on the on the on the Father. And so what we learn is that everyone has rights in the community, everyone has rights in the community Subhanallah today, you know, as I said, the brutal or what's truly honest, and I have to say this is that even a lot of times, you know, when I have talked about even rights of children, for example, you have a lot of parents who get really upset that why is he talking about the rights of children, because they feel like that only they should

00:05:39 --> 00:06:18

deserve the respect. Now, of course, parents, you know, subhanAllah, there is so much mentioned the Quran and the Sunnah about the respect of parents. But at the same time, keeping in mind that everyone has rights, even our own children have rights, my daughter has rights My children have rights to my wife has rights to. And so a lot of times what happens is that when we when people are talking about the rights that we owe to other people, they feel like as if this is an attack against them, we remember that when these rights are mentioned in hotbars, and hotrods, and so forth. This is not an attack against anyone, no one is coming after you. If the rights of children are being

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

mentioned, this is not a thing against the parents. And even the children need to understand too, that when the rights of parents are being mentioned, then this is not an attack. And this is not trying to put you down or degrade you either when the rights of the husband are being mentioned, is not to the intent is not to put the wife down. And if the rights of the husband are mentioned, then the intent is not to put to elevate the wife and to degrade and bring down the husband. Because at the end of the day, all these rights were taught to us by who they were taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we know that this is part of our deen, this is the way we should

00:06:57 --> 00:07:40

treat others. So if this is the case, today, you might be you know, you might become very critical. You might become really upset if someone is you know, if someone has rights upon you, and they're being taught that. But I want every person who's watching this video to think about this, on the day of judgment on the Day of Judgment. Allah will ask you, did you fulfill the rights of other people or not? Allah will not ask us who did not fulfill your rights. Remember, I mean, every time we have the situation, people they say that the reason I don't show respect to that person, or I don't I don't fulfill their rights is because they don't show me respect. Brothers and sisters, remember,

00:07:40 --> 00:08:22

there's there's two things or there's few things that you cannot have any control over. Okay? There's few things that you have i No one has any control over. The very first thing is what people will think about us, and what people will say about us, these are two things that you have absolutely no control over. Now, I'm not saying that you cannot, you know, you cannot make a wise decision and so forth. But remember that our job as a Muslim, following the Sunnah of the Prophet I send them is to fulfill other people's rights. I have to fulfill so many people's rights. That is what my responsibility is. I not supposed to be worried about who fulfills my rights or not. And we

00:08:22 --> 00:08:58

learn this from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Do we find any Hadith, any story where the promises Salam, he went to someone and he enforced his rights upon anyone else? Did he ever go home and say, Do you know who I am? I am Rasulullah. And you need to show me respect. And you need to show me dignity and honor. And you know, when I come home, this has to be this and this has to be there and all that kind of stuff. Yes, you can have those expectations from your family that when I come home, please make sure the house is clean, all that kind of stuff. But the problem was not a dictator at home. It was as if when he walked in at home, everyone was stopped breathing. And that

00:08:58 --> 00:09:38

is the case with many families today. And people think that this is part of being a man, this is part of being you know, showing your dominance. I mean, who are you trying to show your dominance to? Who are you trying to show to at the end of the day, I followed us wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam. Unfortunately we have even many parents teaching their own sons the same thing that when you go home, be absolutely hard on your wife be like very difficult upon her near do not compromise with her and all that kind of stuff. Because that shows that you are a man No, you know what that shows? That shows that you are not your o'clock is not like the o'clock of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:09:38 --> 00:09:59

sallam. That is what that shows you. That's not what a man is. The Prophet son was a man. The Prophet SAW son was a man and apostle when he came home, he will never treat people like that. He will never go and just demand his rights from other people. He will never go into the streets and say to the children, that you come and you make some to me, but the Paulson was afraid first person to go to the church.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:36

Children in Medina, they were playing on the streets, and he will go and make salaam to them first Subhanallah I mean, that's what you call a man. That is what you call a you know a gentleman. And that is what we need to follow that is the person that we need to follow, not the culture, what we are taught that what makes you a man and what not makes you a man. But what makes you a man is what we learn from the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And what we learn from him is that you fulfill the rights of other people and do not be worried about others fulfilling your rights. I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us amongst those who are able to fulfill the rights of everyone

00:10:36 --> 00:11:04

around us, our spouse, our children, our parents, our grandparents, our community members, our neighbors, whoever there may be, we all have weaknesses, we all need to work upon ourselves. We're all are lacking in some area. I ask ALLAH SubhanA with Ana to remove those deficiencies within our life. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us are amongst those who are like us who also Allahu Allah, He will send them who fulfill the rights of other people. I mean, just like Malachite salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
