You know, on an individual level, there is a direct connection between how much you hold in your heart at night with the creation in terms of grudges in terms of hurt in terms of hatred, and how your heart is able to fill itself with the love of the Creator and ascend to the highest ranks. And so on the profit side some talks about a man being from the people of Paradise just because at night he would empty his heart out of all grudges and seek forgiveness for people. How could the prophets lie Selim hold anything in his heart when he was so busy nurturing it with love every single night and filling it with the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's why you don't see the profit

00:00:39--> 00:00:52

slice that I'm bringing up things in the past, and you don't see the profit slice some burdens or burdening others with previous grudges, even though he's surrounded by people that previously tried to kill him or even killed members of his family and companions.

00:01:00--> 00:01:34

Now, it was likely that if you were a companion of the Prophet slicin, that you would have overstepped a few times because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was so merciful and so humble, that you could forget yourself at times, right? So that could mean raising your voice in His Presence of Allah hottie wisdom that could mean taking advantage of his kindness. And when you came to that realization, knowing who he was, you wanted to seek His forgiveness of Allah when he was alone. And one thing about the Prophet slicin I'm a beautiful description of him is that he was hard to upset and he was quick to forgive. So it was very hard to make the profit slice, learn that in the first

00:01:34--> 00:02:08

place, because again, women tuck them in enough so he wouldn't get angry for himself anyway. So the longer you sit them, and at the same time, if you ask the profit, slice them for forgiveness, even if he was very angry, he would immediately forgive you. So the longer it was to them, no matter how large the transgression was, prior to that, so you have this list of things right? For one, the Prophet slicin did not let things get to him in the first place. And that's why you find For example, when I saw the law and he describes as we're walking the streets of Medina, and the prophets lie Selim is in charge of Medina and there were some who would say to the Prophet slicin,

00:02:08--> 00:02:45

Assam already come Assam meaning death instead of Salaam peace. So they said it so quickly, that the Prophet slicin could not distinguish Salaam from Sam as an ordinary listener, and he shall be a lot of time on how responds in like manner, and says make May the curse of a lobby upon you may death be upon you, and fights back and the prophets lie Selim just brushes it off. And he is in charge mean the prophets lie Selim could actually escalate this to a very serious manner, but he tells I use all the data and her calm down she says yada Silla, Didn't you hear what they said to you and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and Didn't you hear what I responded? I said, why they

00:02:45--> 00:03:21

come and upon you? So if they said Salaam, then it's Salaam upon them, and if they said Sam, then it sounds upon them as well. And he tells her he saw the Allahu taala and her Yeah, he shut it shut. Allah loves gentleness in all of his affairs, so he wouldn't let it get to him in the first place I'll allow you to send him so you didn't get under his skin. And at the same time the profit slice and I'm also did not want to hear bad things about other people. He didn't want to hear things conveyed to him sallallahu wasallam that would cause that type of disruption so he says some allies and I'm don't convey bad things to me. For any hibou and arthralgia. in a coma Anna serene Masada I

00:03:21--> 00:03:56

like to come out to you. When my heart is pure. When my test is pure, I don't want to carry any type of anger or hatred, or have bad feelings towards any of you. So I don't want to even know when things are sad and these types of things happen. And this is what Allah subhanaw taala says about himself, Allah Azza wa sallam fabby ma Mateen Allah He didn't tell her how La Quinta fog one holiday and fog woman how like far far and homeless tequila home or shower home. Last pants Allah mentions, O Messenger of Allah, it is a great mercy of Allah and from the mercy of Allah, you are gentle and kind towards them and had you been harsh and hard hearted, then they would have fled from you, but

00:03:56--> 00:04:32

instead you pardon them and you forgive them and you consult them in regards to your mutual affairs sallallahu wasallam. So the prophets I seldom did not repel people with that type of a personality, right? And honestly a lot of time and who of course, has his own particular vantage point where he mentions that the prophets of Allah how to use them never used to say to me, why did you do this or why didn't you do that? He says countless little leisel Allah and he was Salaam escena nasci Holika the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had the most amazing character when he sent me to go on an errand once I got caught up playing with the other kids. And when the profit slice and found me the

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

profit slice, I'm simply smiled at me and he said, Oh, nice. Did you go where I told you to go? And I said, you have a soda. I'm sorry. I'm going right now. And honestly, a lot of Santa Ana says I served him for nine years but he never chastised me harshly about anything or asked me why didn't you do this? or Why didn't you do that? Even though I was in a vulnerable position, right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was always gentle. He never really took things too far. So Allah Han even Salaam and he was always overlooking and forgiving. Salaam

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

How to use them whether it was with his family members, or it was with those that were on the outside, or it was with those who are close to him in the community sallallahu wasallam. And then you see some of the more serious things right again, the prophets I seldom was surrounded by people that had tried to hurt him before, right. So honestly, Alonzo mentions, for example, that one time at men from Mecca, descended upon us and lost my son from a tener ame. And they were in full armor and they had the intent of doing battle with him sallallahu wasallam and the Prophet slicin was able to thwart them and capture them and he didn't kill them. So Allah hi Islam, he let them go. And you

00:05:36--> 00:06:15

find that the prophets lie Selim was able to let go of not just the people physically and not hold them to account in that sense, but remove any type of ill feelings. Now you know, the story of double pilot and co pilot being like a father to the prophets, Eliza them. There were two men in the room when altana was dying, that were preventing the Prophet slice alum from getting doubleton have to say la ilaha illa, Allah and his last moments. The first one is very well known, that's Abuja. The second one is I'd love to be omiya Abuja and I beloved ipomoea continue to shout out to Bill taalib, as he was dying, are you on the religion of the multiplet? Or are you on the religion of

00:06:15--> 00:06:51

your son Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I will die saying, I'm on the religion of Ogden multilib and the Prophet slice of them forgave the love and iv omiya he became a companion of the Prophet slice of the Prophet slice. I've never brought up that incident to him again, a Buddha who of course, died the way that he did his son Eric Chroma becomes a companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the prophets lie some tells the companions don't mention abou Jad, don't call a Buddha held by a Buddha held the father of ignorance in the presence of a comma because it might hurt his feelings. So how Allah He is taking into consideration the feelings of Nkrumah in

00:06:51--> 00:07:28

regards to his father, even though his father oppress the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and caused a batata, who is like his father to die in that way, you find hinze, who ordered for the liver of hemsedal the alongside and who to be cut out, and then she chewed it and spit it out. And she asked the Prophet slicin forgiveness and the Prophet slicin forgave her, you find why she who was the one who actually carried out the order and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam forgave washy. So you have all of these different things. And one of the things that's important to keep in mind here is that the Prophet slicin I'm liens on prior examples, and we lean on his example sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:07:28--> 00:08:07

So an Abu Sufyan comes to the Prophet slice lm and he says, we were wrong and Allah has preferred you over us the Prophet slicin, recited what use of it his Salaam said what the Prophet Joseph said, that's a three by a chameleon, that there is no blame upon you today. And when it was brought up to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the way that these people had harmed him it his Salatu was Salam. He says, may Allah have mercy on my brother Moses, he was hurt with much more than this, and he was patient it his setup. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam whether you were someone that annoyed him a little bit, or you were someone that actually transgressed upon him it his Salatu was Salam in a

00:08:07--> 00:08:31

minor fashion or you had gone to the major length of actually trying to harm the Prophet sallallahu wasallam as soon as you sought his forgiveness, it was as if nothing happened, and the Prophet slicin was able to direct that longing instead to his Lord at night seeking His forgiveness. subhanho wa Taala so Aloo la he
