So much of the Quran when speaking about character emphasizes body language. In fact, when Allah subhana wa tada talks about about the Rama when he talks about the servants of the Most Merciful what's the very first description Alina, I'm sure now a little early honer they tread the earth lightly. When look man and Hakeem it his Salaam is giving his son advice and he talks to him about the way that he raises his voice or the way that he walks. When Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the way we respond to our parents, not to say Oh, not to grunt at them or turn away from them. And you find this in that Hadith of the Prophet slice on them as well. The Prophet slice I'm saying that

00:00:35--> 00:00:50

a person should not be treacherous with their eyes winking and looking and making facial expressions behind a person's back in a way that betrays them. And so when you look at the prophets license, demeanor, everything about the prophets license body language is prophetic.

00:00:58--> 00:01:39

First and foremost, you're probably not used to the idea of someone who is so beautiful being so shy, but the Prophet sys lm said that the whole look of Islam, the characteristic of Islam, the key quality of Islam is here is modesty. And when you look at the prophets Isilon, he was the shyest person, he was the most bashful of people, even though he had the supreme traits sallallahu wasallam. So what were his traits, like what was his demeanor like it his Salatu was Salam. So we already said his smile was constant, and he's described as a salmon or Harkin, he was always smiling and causing others to smile, and he was always laughing and causing others to laugh, but his

00:01:39--> 00:02:20

laughter it his salatu salam was also dignified and shy, when he would laugh sallallahu alayhi wasallam all that really was, was an extremely wide smile. And he would laugh in a way that his smile would open up to where you could see the back of his teeth Salallahu it he was alone. And even when he chose to laugh at his Salatu was Salam says something about him so he would laugh when others would laugh, but he also would laugh sallallahu wasallam widening his smile when Allah subhana wa tada gave him good news. And even though we thought about all the longtime home mentions the prophets lie Selim having that wide smile that laughter after his everybody after his worship,

00:02:20--> 00:03:01

he would laugh when he shared narrations about Allah's mercy, the famous narration about the man who would enter Paradise last. And he would think that Allah subhanaw taala is mocking him because he cannot comprehend the generosity and the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the Prophet slicin laughs and says, Allah laughed at that man, when the man said, y'all are you making fun of me, and you are the Lord of the worlds. So his life was not Audible, but it was clearly distinct from his usual smile, sallAllahu wasallam and it would show his back teeth. The Prophet slice alum also was noted for these long periods of silence. You know, sometimes when a person is eloquent, powerful,

00:03:01--> 00:03:42

beautiful, whatever it may be, they tend to dominate every single gathering, they tend to dominate every single conversation. This is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. And he's noted for his silence, he was always in this place of reflection. And you could tell when you were looking at him sallallahu wasallam, that he was deeply perceptive. And when he sat around people, he would only speak sallallahu wasallam in a way that was proportionate to the gathering itself. He's also described as having heard with montek beautiful logic and coherence. He spoke and he spoke to the point, as we said, his articulation was crisp, and he would speak slowly, and he would repeat

00:03:42--> 00:04:19

himself sallallahu it was still him. So everything he said, you would immediately understand it, and you would remember it from him. salallahu alayhi wasallam. Despite his beauty, he generally looked down at his Salatu was Salam. And when he looked at people, he wouldn't stare, he would just glance at you. And then he would look back down Salalah Hardy was said I'm and that's from his humility. However, if you were enjoying his icontact, then he maintained it. If you were intimidated by him looking at you, then he looked away as well. sallallahu wasallam and that's how striking his beauty was. Amina also the Allahu taala. And who he says that if you ask me to describe the Prophet

00:04:19--> 00:04:56

sallallahu alayhi wasallam, I would not be able to describe him, because even though I would be right in front of him, I couldn't look at him. It's not an avatar of Lima because of how all inspiring his presence was because of how beautiful he was Salalah why he was summoned because of the admiration that I had for him. I just couldn't look up at him. sallallahu wasallam now on the profit side Salaam would turn to you when you would speak. The Prophet seisen was amazing at giving people attention. And so either taffeta, when he turns solid law when he was selling, he wouldn't just turn his head towards you. He would turn his entire body to you when you would speak to him

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

Salallahu Islam to let you know that you're the only person he's

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

Listening to at the moment. And if you asked for his ear, the prophet, slice alum would give you his ear and he would not remove his ear until you were done with everything that you had to say. And if you shook his hand sallallahu wasallam the Prophet size and would not remove his hands until you removed yours, letting you know that he was all yours when you were speaking to him. salaallah heart he was one of my favorite narrations about the profit slice of them in this regard. And one that has serious consequences for us in regards to our cell phones is that the profit slice and I'm had this ring that he liked, and the ring of the profit slice alum was a silver ring. It had a Ruby stone

00:05:37--> 00:06:14

from Abyssinia. And one time the Prophet slicin was wearing this ring and he looked at it a few times in the middle of a conversation. And then he was disappointed with himself sallallahu wasallam being distracted by his ring from his companions as they were speaking. So he actually took off his ring sallallahu wasallam. And he cast it aside, and he said that I was looking at this ring a few times, but I wanted to get it out of the way because it was distracting me from you. So Lola Hardy, he was alone. When he would point towards you it his thought was Salaam, he would not use a finger because if he pointed with his finger towards you, then you might feel like he's casting blame

00:06:14--> 00:06:50

towards you. So the profit slice on him would only point with his entire hand so that you didn't feel like you were being blamed by his finger. sallallahu wasallam either to add Jabba when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was amazed by something or when he was in the midst of something and something amusing was said the Prophet slicin them would tap his thigh and he would say Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, when the Prophet size some would walk, he was a man that would walk with a sense of purpose ideal the Allahu taala and who said that the Prophet sly somes walking was like a man walking downhill, about I don't know the a lot of time and who said you couldn't even keep pace

00:06:50--> 00:07:30

with him. And that's because the Prophet slicin on had the walk of someone who had something important to do. He didn't walk arrogantly. sallallahu alayhi wasallam nor did he walk with laziness, but he walked fast. And that was a sign that he was always motivated and he was always productive sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and even in his manner of sitting, there was humility and there was an intentional humility to it. Allah sent an angel to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to ask him if he wanted to live his life as Nabil and Malika or Nabil and abda as a prophet that lives like a king, or a prophet that lives like a humble slave. And the prophets lie Selim

00:07:30--> 00:07:56

chose Nabil and abda, to live like a humble slave. And he said, That's why he would always sit up sallallahu wasallam and eat his food in a certain way, and not recline like an arrogant man or like a wealthy man or like a king. So everything the Prophet slicin on did with his demeanor, lent itself to his supreme humility, to his modesty to his bashfulness to his shyness and to his sincerity to Allah and to the people. Salallahu
