commandments, Emile Rahim Allah He said that even your shadow leaves you in the dark. And we feel that at times when we're most in need, that the people that we thought we could count on are not there. And that drives you to Allah subhanaw taala that drives you to call upon Allah. And hopefully it causes you to reflect in a way that you don't abandon people the way that you felt abandoned in your time of need, that you will rise to the occasion to be there for people and one thing about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is the way he made you feel and the attention that he gave you in the way that he looked at you in the way that he joked with you. All of that was there. But what was
also there was that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not leave you in your time of need, even if his need was greater than yours.
You find this as a trait of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Mecca even under persecution, right where this man from afar comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to complain to him about a debt that was owed to him from the same people that were oppressing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the prophets of Allah hasten takes this man who he doesn't even know, to the door of Abuja, who he knew very well who used to torture the Prophet slice of them and murder his companions and demand that Abuja help pay the man back. So how was it then for people that knew the Prophet slice and then when you had established a relationship with him, first and foremost, jabil,
the Allahu tada and who says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was never asked for anything to which he responded, no, the prophet slice of them would always do something, he would always say something some allow us to learn. Now, he had to apportion the attention that he gave to certain things, but the prophets lie some never fully dismissed the person. And that starts off by the way with his charity, and even if a person took something from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in a harsh manner, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not respond in like manner, and this will be allowed to other animals as I was walking with the profit slice of them one time, and he was wearing
a mantle of Nigel Ron, with a thick border. So he had this garment with a very thick border. And this bedwin man came to the Prophet slice them and he started to pull out that mantle so violently, that he left marks on the neck of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he's saying our 20 minute talk Allah give me from what Allah gave to you. And he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he turned to him. He smiled at him, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam simply took off that bird, that mantle and he gave it to the man sallallahu alayhi wasallam and on top of that Anasazi Allahu taala and who said, he ordered for him a portion of the southern
portion of the charity. So if someone asked the Prophet slice on them as sat in the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would give, and that was not always monetary. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would intervene on behalf of anyone that asks for his intercession. We already mentioned that, especially with the orphans, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would intervene on their behalf for anything because they were the most susceptible to exploitation, the smallest disputes the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would be brought in, and he would intervene, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if there was a territory dispute between neighbors about where a garden starts or
finishes the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would intervene and he tried to make peace between the neighbors if you had a debt that you needed to be paid. If the prophets lie, some could not pay the debt on your behalf. The prophet SAW the law it was said I'm would go to the one that you owe the debt to, and he would encourage him to be lenient towards you. If you needed to get married, the Prophet slicin would look for a spouse for you. If you had a marriage dispute the profits license would try to help you in your marriage dispute. And these are again with people that were not you know, considered from the nobility of Medina or people that are famous in the car. These are just
people that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saw as his brothers and sisters in need. And he always responded to the call sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he taught and live this as a form of worship when in MCI often LiFi had a humble ilium and attack if if you haven't mastered the Shahada, for me to go out there and to walk with my brother in his hour of need, is more beloved to me than doing errante calf than secluding myself in this Masjid meaning the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for an entire month. Think about that. And one of the beautiful descriptions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in that regard, is the way that he would do so I'd love to have
your opha will the allow time on who he says what are yet knuffel and young she Mr. Malati will miskeen for yakety Allah alhaja that the Prophet slicin was not too proud to be seen walking with the widow and walking with the orphan walking with a poor person all the way until he fulfilled their need. So you could see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as a common sight in Medina, carrying someone's load you
could see the profit slice and I'm assisting the elderly woman to her home to carry her groceries from the marketplace. You could see the Prophet sallallahu wasallam doing all of these tasks that were considered low for the lowest person in Medina, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was honored to do them. And one of the most beautiful narrations in this regard and somehow Allah we often hear this narration paraphrase, but really, the context of this and the response of the prophets lifetime is just so beautiful and tells you so much about him. So the law and he was alone, and also the law and he says there was this woman can if he actually had a sheep, she had a mental
illness. And that's significant, right? That she came to the profit slice. I mean, she had a mental illness, and the profit slice and could have easily dismissed her right. And she comes to the profit slice and then she says Jada sutala in La la hija I need you jasola I need something from you. You know the profit slice on response to this woman. He responds with such love and such attention. He says yeah, I'm full on who the a year turati [???]ty for only if he had a cold market. He said oh mother so and so. Pick any place in Medina choose any path that you want me to be in, and I will go exactly where you call me to call me to any place call me to any task, and I will go there with you.
At some party Coby he hates hotshot, she would take the Prophet sallallahu wasallam wherever she wants to Medina.
How beautiful is that? The most important men in society. And this woman could come to the Prophet slice Allah and she could say to the prophets, I some I want to go here I want to go here, and the Prophet sly, some would go with her all over Medina to do whatever she needed, and not once to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam removed that comforting smile from his face, or make her feel like she was insignificant or she was a burden upon him. So Aloo la he
solo la me.
