Mr. Han are 100 likeable. Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Mohammed wala earlier he was a big marine about

00:00:07 --> 00:00:25

how many times has it occurred in our life. We read one ayah of the Quran, we understand something out of it. And then five years later, 10 years later, we read the same idea of the Quran and something clicks to us. We read the idea, and we understand it differently.

00:00:26 --> 00:00:51

When we say the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in many cases is no different. You read one story of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, WA send them and you say, SubhanAllah. This is a lesson I take from this scene from this story. But later on, you look at the same story again, and is going to provide you a different lesson. This is one of the most beautiful things about the CETA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:00:52 --> 00:00:54

There was a a temporary by the name.

00:00:55 --> 00:01:38

He wrote about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, that if you were to compare the intelligence of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam compared to everyone else's intelligence, the Prophet SAW Selim will supersede everyone else. You don't long time ago, how would you test? Or how would you grade someone's intelligence? It was based on your IQ score, the higher the IQ, the more intelligent you are. But these kinds of people like Isaac Newton, all these people who had like high IQs, these were people who were always living within their books, go back and say their life, they never had a very, very social life. But when you talk about and when you study the CETA, of the

00:01:38 --> 00:02:21

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this was a man who was always around people. The only time he isolated himself from people was before and prior to working. After war, he never in the life of the prophet saw some Did he ever isolate himself from people, he was always around people. And one thing about people is I've said this before, it is not easy to deal with people all the time. People they act sometimes in front of you one way, they will act differently behind you. Sometimes people will say things about you, sometimes people are always trying to do something for you, because they want something in return from you. So this is how people are in most cases. But if there is one person

00:02:21 --> 00:03:04

who knew and who could understand people, it was Rasulullah sallallahu, ala he was a man, that no matter what the situation was, he will always put himselves himself and other people's situation, and he will see how that person is feeling. And give you an example. And this is once again, when we talk about the emotional intelligence of Rasulullah sallallahu. It is sitting on people this is what that is, this is the emotional intelligence of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, very few of us have this. Once it was a hadith narrated by Ernest of in America, the ultra iron that a man cooks and food, and he wants to invite the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this is something that

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

every customer, you love a person, they're in town, you want to invite them to your home. So he called he sends a messenger to the house of the province, salam, and saying that such and such man is inviting you for food. So he says, Now think about this. Imagine if you and I we get a call come for food. I was removed the hurry by a year. Well, you know, the whole the whole menu. I'm coming right now. Okay, if we hear the menu, we're gonna come. Do we ever find out about how others are feeling? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, Oh, he's inviting me. He goes, Yes, he's inviting you. He goes, has he invited Ayesha?

00:03:43 --> 00:03:48

He goes, No, yes. Why? He's only invited you. He goes, I'm sorry. I can't take that invitation.

00:03:50 --> 00:04:01

Then, after a while, again, knock on the door, said is that person inviting you again? Is it invited? No, I'm sorry. Ayesha is not invited. I'm sorry. I can't come.

00:04:02 --> 00:04:16

The third time the man came. He says such as this person is inviting you. He goes can Aisha come? And he says yes, this time he is permitted. Aisha can come to then they went together. Now think about this.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:58

The Prophet saw some understands. He gets a call for food and he goes, How's his wife behind going to feel? Does she have anything to eat at home? Is she going to be taken care of she made she has a heart, just like us wa sallahu wa salam. This is what you call emotional intelligence. Understanding what the situation is, and giving advice or taking the next step accordingly. At the end of the life of the prophet Sallallahu It was another example. The province Saddam is lying there. Everyone knows that the person was about to depart. The Sahaba imagine what their emotional state must be like at that time.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:45

because at the Battle of our hearts, when there was a rumor that Folsom was killed at that time, the Sahaba they lost their minds, they like nearly they went, like they did not know how to cope with that kind of news. And people began to say that anyone ometer Mahatama. We all know what he said, Anyone who says that his passed away, you watch what happens to him? His answer to every single thing. And so what happened was, it was a rumor they found out now, years later, now the situation is serious. The products are no see, this is why he's such an amazing man, an intelligent man, that he is sitting on his deathbed, yet he understands how the Sahaba are feeling, they must be thinking

00:05:45 --> 00:06:26

to themselves, that what's going to happen tomorrow. Imagine us being the sign at the sign of someone of our family. And we're thinking to ourselves, what's going to happen tomorrow, imagine a father of a family is passing away. The wife is thinking what's going to happen tomorrow, the children are thinking what's gonna happen tomorrow? How are we going to survive tomorrow? The Sahaba are thinking the same exact way? How are we going to survive without Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And that kind of person he understood and what did he say? He says a solid, a solid, a solid, one. Malakut. Amen. Solid, solid, solid. Why solid, because if you have Allah in your corner,

00:06:27 --> 00:07:08

you have Allah on your side. Even though I may not be here with you, you're thinking of how you're going to survive. In sha Allah, Allah is going to be there with you at all times. This is the Prophet SAW Selim, understanding the situation and giving them an advice according to that. Brothers and sisters, when you and I when we talk to people, when we deal with people, forget about even other people, even with our own family members at times, we don't know and we don't put ourselves in their situation. We don't know what they're going through. We just come and we give advice. As a man said, a lot of times we hear only to formulate our own answers, not to see what they're going

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

through. And the problem with them was a man who used to listen, not so he can formulate answers in his mind, but rather he can give an advice that can really morally uplift them, that can give them confidence. Lastly, I'm going to share with you think about this.

00:07:25 --> 00:08:06

The Prophet SAW Selim in the story of certain calf, there is a story that we all have heard the Sahaba I mean, there are some people with the intention with the wrong intention they came and the estrus who also salam for a few, they asked him a few questions. And the Prophet SAW and said, what I'll give you an answer after a few days. Usually, the wealthy will come. The Paulson was informed he would tell them this is the worry, this is the answer to your question. For several days, for nearly two weeks, at some point I mentioned, there was no worry that came from Allah subhanho wa taala. Now imagine, if you have a really close connection with someone, a very good friendship with

00:08:06 --> 00:08:39

someone, and all of a sudden they cut off all communication, just the next day, they don't talk to you. They don't look at you. The first thing you're thinking to your mind is what did I do to that person? Did I say something to hurt that person? Did I do something to hurt that person? Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala when he sends down the we're here to the Prophet sallallahu, ala he was sending them. What's the very first thing see, even Allah understands in this situation? The problem was, someone must be thinking, Is Allah upset with me? And what's the what do you say to the person? He says, Now what?

00:08:40 --> 00:09:27

Rob Buka your Lord did not say farewell to you. And he says Walmart, Allah and he's not upset with you. He put him to ease knowing very well how the person was thinking. So this is why part of the love for the Prophet salallahu audio, some that you and I we need to learn is how to emotionally understand other people say things to lift people up, not to demean them. As I said before, a lot of times as parents, we grew up overseas, we were hammered and hammered and hammered. And we die. We're like, you know, that would motivate us by kids today, you hammer them, they're gonna remain down, say something that can boost their confidence, say something that they can push that they you know,

00:09:27 --> 00:09:57

they'll be able to push themselves forward and say something that can morally uplift them. This is part of the cloth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, I did say one last thing, but there is one more last thing I do want to cover inshallah. And I promise this is the last thing. You know, living in America. There's really one thing I've seen very much in our Muslim kids and I really want the parents to take this serious and we need to teach our kids something very important when it comes to o'clock. See, we teach our kids a person sneezes, what do you say? What do you say?

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

That person says 100 Allah

00:10:00 --> 00:10:24

Do you say your homework Allah? When you see a when you there are different do hours for different situations. But what the one thing I've seen majority of our Muslim kids that don't have is the o'clock in society. What do I mean by that? You don't want time. You know the way many of us where we come from you want someone's attention. You're like, Hey, hello, hello, hello. Okay. That's why we call people. Hello.

00:10:25 --> 00:11:04

In America, the love that we need to learn in society is you don't call a lady or a man at the store. Hello, you don't do that. You go to a person. Excuse me, sir. Excuse me, ma'am. This o'clock, our kids don't have I'm being truly honest with you. They don't have Excuse me. I saw a Muslim child one time sitting next to a lady. She sneezed. What's the general practice? Bless you. That's the general practice. And it's not haram to say bless you. You the same bless you. Now the lady she's sneeze. She looked at the Muslim child. And he's just staring and he says Alhamdulillah

00:11:07 --> 00:11:43

he has no idea what to say. He has no idea what to do. And this is something that we talk about o'clock. o'clock is not only within our own community, o'clock is even outside. So we got to teach our kids this is part of a clock also. I beg your pardon. I'm sorry. Like someone says something you don't hear. You can hear. I'm sorry. I beg your pardon. You see these kinds of things. Excuse me you don't you know, children. I've seen Muslim kids just walking around in stores. When you go to walmart i see the whole epic there. Okay, so when you go there you see all these kids is walking around between people like there's like a slithering snake. They don't even say Excuse me, sir.

00:11:43 --> 00:12:18

Excuse me, ma'am. Even like Yes, sir. Yes, ma'am. These this o'clock is lacking in our community. And I see it over and over again. So this is why please teach your children that what are the o'clock outside when you talk to people when you are around other people? What are the right words to say when to say how to say this is very, very important. We need to teach our children ask ALLAH SubhanA wa COVID to give all of us the ability to understand these things. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the o'clock the emotional intelligence of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam does that Kamala paid a set amount equal to labor council
