respect to listeners.
weeks ago, I
spoke about the
I spoke on the topic of humility, the wild boar.
And I promised them that
I would give specific examples from the life of the prophets of the law
of have humility.
And since the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a shining example for us and everything
he demonstrated personally and practically demonstrated his own teach.
He commanded us to be humble.
of the most sublime manner, so that we could adopt his humility, his the Wilder and simplicity as an example and follow in his footsteps.
All the prophets of Allah had he himself
being the greatest of a last creation, the most learned, most noble
all of the prophets of Allah were extremely humble.
In fact, humility was one of the core and chief characteristics,
both mental humility, humility of character, in speech in gates in the way they conducted themselves the way they carried themselves.
And even though all of the profits of a low are blessed with so much, both in religious terms, but even in worldly terms, a number of them were both prophets as well as
kings messengers, as well as monarchs.
And yet, their power, their military prowess, their wealth, their command and control over so many people's lives,
their leadership, people obeying them, following them, adoring them, loving them. None of this had any effects on their character, in terms of even a shred of arrogance. They remained humble for the sake of Allah. And remarkably, as I mentioned them,
Allah mentions in the Quran, how the prophets of Allah hidehiko salaam was so humble, that right at the moment of their chief glory and power, when any other normal person would succumb to the temptation of shave lamb, when any normal person would
give in to the whispers of the knifes and regard themselves consider themselves to be privileged and grand and great. Right at the moment of the height of their glory and power. The prophets of Eden was set out or Salaam, turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala in humility. One perfect example of that is the proper use of alayhis salaam.
The Prophet Yusuf Alayhi Salaam, had a tragic and dramatic story
during his lifetime, from childhood, all the way up to a last panel with data on the day
him with leadership with de facto rule of Egypt. But he passed through a lot.
he rose from the depths of the well, where he was flung
and then eventually sold in slavery, and then flung into prison. He rose from the depths of the well
to the heights of power in Egypt, ultimately becoming the de facto ruler of the whole of Egypt. On that occasion,
when he was a child, he saw a dream mentioned at the very beginning of sort of the use of, of 11 planetary but 11 planets and the sun and the moon prostrating to him. That was a dream he saw in childhood, and its interpretation was fulfilled many many years later, when he became the de facto ruler of Egypt.
And the last panel data brought his father after having restored his sight because he had become blind. He brought his father and mother and his 11 Brothers, many of them who had turned against, and were chiefly guilty and responsible for banishing him in the first place. But now law has the word reunited the whole family and the father and mother were honored and elevated to the throne of Egypt, as a law mentioned in the Quran. And the brothers paid homage to him. That was a moment of His glory, yet, right, and that moment precisely, instead of
enjoying the adulation and the power, and instead of glowing in that glory, Yusuf Alayhi Salaam turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and pray to him saying, our law, indeed you have given me of Kingdom and you have taught me the meaning and the interpretation of dreams
that are similar to what our Originator of the heavens and the earth and to believe them Yeah, well, you are my master both in the world and in the Hereafter, Dauphine Muslim or whatever your name is Celine, allow me to die and claim me in death as a Muslim, and attach me to the pious. So right at that moment, and usefully his Salah was on the throne of Egypt, just as before him long ago, sorry.
Before him, sorry, after him, will come another ruler on the throne of Egypt, Pharaoh, and how to Pharaoh behave. He denied the very existence of Allah subhanho data, he challenged Allah in His authority, he told people, I do not know of any god for you besides myself. That was the fact that Mauna Kea rule Kingdom had on another human being. But the prophet of Allah is Salatu was Salam seated on the throne of Egypt. witnessing the spectacle, he turned to align humanity. The Prophet Solomon alayhis salaam.
He did the same story man alayhis salaam last panel with Allah granted in power kingdom. I've already explained the story in many occasions in great detail, but once he summarized he
marched him parts in a procession, and that procession wasn't just a convoy of carriages, and horses and camels, nor was it merely an entourage of men. Rather, as a lot mentioned in the Quran, you silly man alayhis salaam embarks on a procession, marching,
accompanied by jinn and in armies and hosts of jinn and men, of animals, birds and beasts. And whilst he was marching, and then a queen and
realized his coming his impending arrival, the queen and communicated to the colony of ants that quickly enter your holes and Burrows, Leslie man crushes you with his army, and they don't even realize Allah subhanho wa Taala carried the speech of the ants with the winds that he had made subservient to the commander of Solomon and his alarm to the ears of humanity. So, again, on such an occasion, any normal person would succumb to the temptation and the whispers of the knifes of glory of power of arrogance or pride. But silly man alayhis salam, there he is.
He sees around him, armies of men and Gen birds and beasts. He is reminded of the elements being made subservient to his command even the winds and he is reminded of the great
favor of Allah to him and his father, that he taught them the speech of the insects and the birds.
Right at that moment, instead of glowing in the warmth of that glory, so the man is just like the Prophet Yusuf Alayhi Salaam, turned to align him
and said Rob Bell, Ziggy and Scott on aromatic allottee and under la vida vida de, what an art Masada de la what a coffee by the cassani in that, Oh my Lord, grant me the ability to be grateful for your favors that you have bestowed upon me and my father, and grants me the ability that I may do good deeds with which you should be pleased.
Allah, oh, my Lord, and to me amongst your pious,
both cinnamon alayhis salam on usefully his salam, at the height of their glory and power, turn to Allah in prayer and in humidity. Both of these stories are mentioned in the Quran. Then,
you have the example again in the form of the Prophet Isa alayhis salam, his example, is a bit more intense than that of Solomon alayhis salaam and usefully his Salaam, Allah gave them worldly power. But in terms of the Prophet Isa alayhis salaam, although Allah gave him no Kingdom of Earth,
a lot did give him the kingdom of spirituality, such that
more people follow Him, and have followed throughout history, that have even followed the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu it.
So till date, he has a greatest number of followers. And the Prophet Isa alayhis. Salaam, unlike the other messengers, has been hailed as a God in his own right a devotee, one of the Holy Trinity, he is worshiped, besieged and prayed to And not only that,
but he's not just prayed to, as a saint, or as one of the Trinity and as the Son of God. Rather, he is hailed as God Himself God incarnate. And allow will question him on the day of judgment about this.
And clarifying that last panel with the owner beautifully says in the more layers than given the secret in your corner Abdullah.
That never is an emphatic negative, never will the Messiah
distain from and turn up his nose at being an Arab servant and a slave to Allah, and all the closest angels.
And there we are, the Prophet Isa his salon is quite unlike the other messengers. He wasn't just given Kingdom or monarchy or wealth and riches, and power over the hearts and minds of men. He is hailed as a God Himself as God Himself as God in can't. And yet last panel with Anna sates, specifically using him as an example, that never will miss the Messiah Isa Namibian, to stain from and turn up his nose as being a slave and a servant to a while. And normally angels and then a law continues on Yes, thank you for that he was stuck there for the actual meal at Jimmy or whoever descends from being a servant to Allah and is arrogant there have and Allah will soon amass all of
them unto himself. So if the prophets of Allah had eaten was Salatu was Salam. The likes of Solomon and Yusuf alayhi wa sallam were given the kingdom of the earth, and the like of the Prophet Isa alayhis salaam, who who wasn't is hailed as God incarnate, God Himself. If these messengers of Allah Do not turn up their noses, do not disdain from being slaves and humble servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala and who is anyone else?
And since the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a great source of all the messengers. He recognized the obligation of this humility, and the need for a Buddha, meaning servitude, that rank of being a true servant of Allah, He recognized that more than any other profitable law
and therefore he was the greatest servant of the law. In fact,
to help us understand the humidity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, think of it this way,
ponder and reflect on the humility of the Prophet Yusuf alayhi salam, even at the height of his glory.
Reflect on the humidity of the prophets that would really sit down on the Prophet Solomon alayhis salam, again at the height of their power and glory, reflect on the humility which alas cites as an example in the Quran of the Prophet Isa at his Salaam, even though he's worshipped as garden counts,
reflecting the humility of all of these prophets, and then know
and think and imagine that the humility of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam surpassed the humility of all of these prophets.
That's how humble he was in carat. And he reminded his followers again and again.
He pleaded with
In fact, he quoted the very example of the Prophet Isa alayhis salaam.
As a man Buhari law, he relates in his saying,
from saving I would have been a part of the alarm.
He says, I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say loud to Rooney gamma autodata Tina sadhana Miriam for innama and Abdo for Hulu, Abdullah he was
that do not extol me.
Do not extol me as the Masada the nazarenes have extolled Isa the son of Mulligan for I am but his servants, therefore say Abdullah he would assume the servant of Allah and His Messenger
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us Do not elevate me, above that rank which Allah has bestowed upon me, do not extol me lightly and as a means of extolled, he said in the middle.
Always remember that I am only a last servant. Therefore you as well say no more say, Abdullah who was sold.
And in fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would use these words before saying the messenger IE, he would say Abdullah before he would say it or so. So before remark claiming Prophet said before reminding anyone that he was a messenger of Allah, he would remind everyone that he was the servant of Allah first. So it's Abdullah who was always Abdullah he would assume, the servant of Allah, the slave of Allah, and His Messenger Salallahu it.
So the prophets of Allah Allahu wa Salatu was Salam have always been the most humble of his creation. And every one of them has left an example for us. And Suarez, a supreme example is that of the Prophet Mohammed some of them are highly
humble and simple, in speech, in thought, in character, in conflict in gate in his choices in every single thing.
And he recognized the obligation of being a true servant of Allah. Just like the other prophets are laden with Salah. This is why for the prophets of Allah it was under the greatest rank was worthy of being a servant, of being a slave. And a lot of xojo in the room when he mentions again the chief glory of the Prophet Solomon law, it was seldom How does he describe?
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given prophets? He met gibreel alayhis salam in Perce Do you believe alayhis salaam to send it to the earth, spoke to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave him the conveyed the words of Allah recited the first words it put up this metal began liliha speaking of that first meeting, last panel who Adana so it was a change. That was a moment of change for mankind. That was a moment of change that that was the introduction of Islam. That was the final time when Allah subhanho wa Taala chose to speak to one of his creation to convey his message to the rest of creation. That was a glorious moment. And yet how does the last panel
with Allah refer to that occasion?
He says, speaking of Djibouti alayhis salaam for all ha Illa Hema
that Jubilee, revealed to servant or a lot on that occasion through Jabri reveal to his servants what he did reveal. How What does he call the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on that glorious occasion. He calls him again, his servant is slave.
And at the moments of glory during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was
when Allah has the whistle carried
On that miraculous journey of Isar from Makkah to Michigan,
from Michigan, her arms and Mr. de la casa, and from an image of the rock star to the heavens and back on that miraculous Jen, which, during which he led all the prophets of Allah alayhi wa sallam in prayer, he met a last panel hoarder and he was given a tour of the heavens. He was accompanied by gibellini alayhis salaam, who at one stage declined to accompany him further, for that was a spot and a time reserved only for the prophets in the law. It was a last panel who was bestowed upon him, such glories such blessings and favors, that he did not bestow upon any of the Messenger of Allah. That was the height of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam His glory in the heavens. And yet,
how does the law refer to that occasion? Does he mention the province of the law it was and and by name, does he give him titles? No sapan under the SRB
Glorified be that law who carried his slave His servants by now
throughout the camera, just like these two occasions, when last panel with Anna speaks about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, inviting mankind, praying to Allah, receiving the revelation, meeting Jubilee, meeting the last panel with Anna, on all of these glorious occasions, the last panel with data refers to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a servant to slave.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew better than anyone else, the rank of budimir, of servitude, of simplicity of being a slave and a servant to Allah subhanho data, even though he knew his rank,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew exactly what Allah bestowed upon him, and he would tell people at
but he was bad.
He would remind people of who he wants of the wrath that law had given him, but at the same time, he would remind people that he was a slave and a servant of Allah, and warn them that do not elevate me, do not extol me.
Do not lavish praise on me, beyond the rank that Allah has bestowed on me. Otherwise, he told us exactly who he was to just give one example that will set the alarm and relate to the for quality bagna manager in his son, and by others, that the prophets of Allah Almighty will send them said, and a see you though whether they are the Mona Lisa,
I am the leader of all the children of Adam. And that is no boast.
What an old woman than shuguang, who am I
and I will be the first person
that the earth will split open and allow to come out on the day of resurrect resurrection. What are the biggest no boast?
What an enormous suffering when Arthur and I shall be the first to intercede and the first one who's in session shall be accepted. But there is no boats This is a reference to the day of reckoning, when,
after the resurrection,
the whole of mankind will be in a state of
being greatly patterned, just
anxious panic, panic, fearful
and their fear and anxiety will not know and, and they will be
desperate for a last round of horror data to at least begin the reckoning.
The weights will be more painful
in their view than the reckoning itself. So they will beg, they will be desperate for the reckoning to begin they will go to the Prophet alayhi wa sallam one by one.
Beginning with the greatest prophets, each prophets of Allah will say on that occasion, that I am unable to assist you this day. Go to the next profits go to the next prophets. Every prophets will remain remember his laps, something about him, for which he shall be questioned on the Day of Judgment. And speaking of Eastern ammonium, it was Salam. He will be the second last person that the whole of mankind or the representing delegation of mankind will go to and they will remind me of an idiom that you are the kenema the word of Allah, you are his spirits
and you are this you are this, intercede on our behalf and plead with a lot at least begin the reckoning east of an ammonium it was Salam on that day will remind
People that this day, I am concerned knifes enough. See, I'm concerned for myself myself, Why? He will be fearful he will be apprehensive. He will be concerned about law questioning him about him and his mother being worshipped besides.
So he along with all the other prophets before him, will say finally go to go to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for this is his rank and station. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be approached, he will then proceed forward into frustration for last panel with Allah and
Allah has diligent will, himself sayings, but on that occasion,
Allah will inspire me and reveal to me such words of praise, which I will use to praise him that are yet to not
even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being
the one who praises Allah, the Most of his creation, even Ahmed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
did not know in the dunya what words of praise Allah will bestow upon him and inspire him with to praise Allah on the Day of Judgment. And that actually leads us to the final words of that hadith of a will say the whole deal of the last one, in which he says, the first thing, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, nse, you're the one or the other, or whatever. I'm the leader of all the children are Adam, and there is no boast in this. I'm the first that the earth shall split and allow to emerge on the Day of Resurrection and there is no boast in this. I am the first to intercede and the first one who's in session will be accepted by Allah. And I've just explained that what are on
the Day of Resurrection? Well, and there is no boast in this. Then finally, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, when we work, we hand the beer, the armor, the armor, the will,
and the banner, the standard of praise will be in my hands on the Day of Resurrection. And there is no boast in this meaning, the banner of praise what I've just mentioned, that on the Day of Resurrection, before
mankind can be relieved of its misery of waiting for the reckoning to begin a loss of Hanna who would add I will have to be praised in a certain way. And the only one to praise Allah, the whole of creation won't praise Allah with that praise.
None of the prophets of Allah will praise Allah with that praise. But that praise, even the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam did not know its words, in the dunya. But Allah has the witches will bestow the banner of that praise. And the words of that prays to just one soul on the Day of Resurrection. And that will be the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says, but even in this that is now boast,
considering the rank of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then his humility,
Prophet salallahu it who sort of knew exactly who he was, and he reminded us of it, adding what are what are, what are, what are, there is no boats, and at the same time warning is that do not extol me Do not elevate me to that rank, beyond that rank, which Alas, bestowed upon me,
in fact, under sort of the magic of the a librarian who relates that in activities recorded by my ramblings Muslim,
it's a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and said, Yeah, Mohammed. Yeah, see you then I want to see you then. Yeah. Hayden.
He said, Oh, Mohammed.
Oh, our master, son of our master.
All the best one amongst us. Some of the best one amongst us. Panama.
He didn't de phi the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He didn't glorify.
He didn't utter any words of worship.
He did not say anything.
That would pose a challenge to the Divinity or the authority of the last panel without her or his exclusive right to worship. Imagine what did he say? All he said was Yeah, see you then I want to see you then. I hate and I want to hate it. Oh, our master some of our master. Oh, the best one amongst us some of the best one amongst us. These words are and continue. were and are and continue to be sad and uttered for everyone.
titles of lavish praise. But how did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam respond? The man came and said, Oh our master, son of our master are the best one amongst us some of the best one amongst us. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually addressed the people and said to them yeah yohannes are people on a computer.
When I start with an echo machine
adhere to your fear of alarm you're being conscious of Allah, adhere to your God wariness. When is the when the como se bomb and do not ever let shavon seize your senses
Mount interferring folkman's ility and let the unzila nila
before that he said an Abdullah Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah Abdullah he was sued will law him out he wanted ferroni Falcon and zenity ality and zeleni a lot of xojo he said our people adhere to your God wariness, and do not ever let shavon seize your senses. I am Mohammed the son of Abdullah Abdullah, the servant of Allah and His Messenger By Allah, I do not wish that you elevate me and raised me above that rank which Allah the Almighty has bestowed upon
image. All the person said was our master some of our master or the best one amongst us, some of the best on amongst us. And this was the response sort of sort of laughs in the light even with some of them. He said fear Allah adhere to your
do not let shape on seize your senses.
Allahu Akbar, by Allah I do not wish I am. I am who I am. Mohammed the son of Abdullah mentioned his father's name. Then he added an all I am is Abdullah the slave of Allah and His messenger
will law he by Allah I do not wish that you elevate me above that rank which Allah has bestowed upon the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew exactly who he was. But it is humility.
Whether people accepted that he was a messenger or not. He reminded everyone that he was a slave and a servant of Allah. And he went by his name, he didn't want fancy titles.
We learned from the story of her they be that are autonomous or the therapy
and the others when they
agreed a truce with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam summoned earlier the alarm and said to him, right.
This is how they're my father leaving Mohammedan
Rasulullah that writes that this is what's Muhammad the Messenger of Allah has agreed
to so straight away, autonomous, rude, objected that
Before that it was an objection of Bismillah prophets of the law. It wasn't an accepted
man over him. He said we don't recognize the right man said right Bismillah then he said this is what Mohammed this. Mohammed the son of Mohammed, the son of Abdullah, Allah, as messenger has decreed and agreed. So Lord said we do not recognize you as a messenger of Allah. If we ever recognize you as a messenger of Allah, we would have never opposed your fortune.
Right Mohammed the son of Abdullah nothing else. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wrote Mohammed the son of Abdullah
Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam would not indulge in fancy titles, prefixes and suffixes, even though he was a great Steven last creation. He sufficed with Mohammed, the son of Abdullah.
If someone called him Mohammed, he would never be a friend
betterman would come as the companions or the alarm would not refer to him as Mohammed meaning the ones who were familiar with him. But the Bedouin, who came from outside and only maximum probably on the first occasion, they wouldn't sometimes say Mohammed Mohammed, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was never offended. He did not want titles, he did not expect titles, and he was never offended when nobody gave him titles. In fact, when people gave him titles, he was offended.
He was concerned. He reminded the speakers of who he was on
their duty was in addressing him and extolling him and praising him and keeping it within limits. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he corresponded with heraclius,
the Roman Emperor,
that letter is sublime and it's, it's, and in its simplicity, despite its simplicity, the greatness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shines through. This is a letter from the emerging, powerful leader of Arabia,
who now sees himself as an equal to heraclius, the Byzantine Roman Emperor, and he is corresponding with him, inviting him to the way of Allah and telling him to submit.
What are the words of the letter smilla rahmanir rahim Mohammed Abdullah, Mohammed, Mohammed bin Abdullah, what are Sunni in Iraq, Avi maroun Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, by the name of Allah, Gracious, the Merciful from Mohammed, the servant of Allah and His messenger to heraclius, the great one of
sublime in its simplicity, no titles, no prefixes, no fancy, false claims, simply from whom and
the slave of Allah and His messenger to heraclius, the ruler of Rome.
That was the simplicity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he recognized and he did not want to be any more he did not want to be a monarch, he did not want Empire. That was never his goal, even though Allah gave him that choice. He could have been like the Prophet, though all within the proper use of and the Prophet silly man and even worse than he could have been like that.
In fact, on one occasion, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, A jinn appeared before me.
he kept on disturbing me. And Allah gave me controlling command over it.
And I thought to myself, let me seize it.
And if I wanted to, I could have seized it and tied it to a pillar. And you would have seen that gin tied to the pillar in the morning. But I remembered my brother, silly man and in his salaams Duran prayer to Allah on request, that Allah probably humbly McCullough embody and embody that Oh my Lord grant me a kingdom, which is not befitting anyone after me. And since the jinn were part of the Kingdom of cinema later Salaam, even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had that option, he took a step back, and that was a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam today Mashallah we have many who have claimed the share of the Kingdom of Solomon at his salon.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given the option, but he never took it the amount of time to learn it relates to Ethan as Muslim from say that I will create a how the Allah.
Allah says Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once visited by Julian and his Salaam who sat in front of
imagine the scene. Do you believe it is Sam seated before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then suddenly he stares at the heavens. And then he says to the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or messenger of Allah.
Here is an angel descending.
This is an angel, who from the moment Allah created him, has never ever descended before.
So the angel came and presented himself to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And the angel said, Allah has sent me to asking you
a familiar can be medallic
Amar? Oh, abdon rusada
that should we make you
a king and the prophets
or should we make you
a slave and a message?
So Jubilee really is Salaam certainly interjected and said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
But while directly Rob bkr, Mohammed, he said, Oh, Mohammed, submit and be humbled to your law.
So the province of the law hiding who sillim turn to the angel and said to him, Well, Adam Russell, no, no Mike, no king and profits, rather a messenger and a servant.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was actually given that choice of being a Moloch messenger of being a prophet King, in the tradition of the MBR. It was set down but voluntarily
His humbleness in his humility and simplicity, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam turned down that offer. And not only that, but even jubilees alayhis salaam, recommended that to him and said to him, oh Mohammed, the word that and Arabic Be humble to your Lord.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had the option, and yet he chose to be not a monarch and a messenger, but some abdon Rasulullah humble prophets, messenger and a slave of Allah.
And that's how he lived. He lived in the dunya, as though not as though he was a mamak, a wealthy powerful King, rather as a simple humble servant or law as an insert. And to lighten the muscle there'll be a lot more and Who says that? He wanted me to let him and others relate this idea that once profits love it, who sent them this How about the Allah visited him, and he was lying on a strong mat.
And the strong maps
have left an imprint and marks on the side of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his body since he was sleeping and resting on the mat, without any upper cloth on his torso.
So when this How about or the alarm or anything came and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rose, they saw the marks and the imprints of the strong mat on the noble body of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they saw the simple maps on the floor. So they said to him or messenger of Allah, if you had signal to us, then we would have laid out some bedding for you.
So that you could have rested on that. And there would not be these imprints on your noble body. What was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his response? He said Monday when it
manifests dunya in La kuraki Minister De La Jolla, Tamara taraka. He said, What connection Do I have with the dunya in the world, my example and the example of the world and I am in the world, but like a trap, who rests for shade beneath a tree for a short while, then he rises and leaves once he has rest.
So he like the whole demeanor the whole world to that brief rest in the shade of a tree before the traveler arises and resumes his journey, the province of the law it assumes that that is my example. What connection Do I have with the dunya and he said that in response to simple bedding being laid out for him, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam slept humbly on walking in and out of the alarm around her says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a simple blanket, which he would fold
as a double blankets and winter and a single blankets and
that's how the province of the love riding who seldom rested, is eating his resting, his sleep, his traveling, even his riding, were all extremely simple. That's how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in his humility. He chose to be a simple servant and slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala, not a Monique and not a prophet. And not only that, he would not tolerate others, comparing him to the other prophets aleikum wa sallam
LA LA and others all related to these from a woreda hora de la and on one occasion
in the marketplace,
a Muslim and a Jew exchanged words.
So the Muslim said
well it is the farm Ramadan Allah Allah Allah me that by that Allah who raised and elevated Mohammed over over the rest of mankind over the world's
so the Jew in his reply, he suddenly said,
Well, let this one let this buffer musala either mean that by that Allah who raised moose and elevated him over the rest of the worlds, so the Muslim slapped
he became angry and indignant and he slapped the June. So the Jew went straight to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said to him,
this is what's happened to me. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, someone that others have had on the line. And then he addressed the people and said to them, oh, people
elevate me and declare me to be better than most
from the day of reckoning
When Allah shall resurrect that he,
Allah shall first of all floor everyone unconscious and people shall fall down unconscious, and I will be amongst those who will fall down unconscious, I will be seized and then
I will be the first one to rise from that
state of seizure. This is different to the one in the previous
one I shall arise and regain consciousness from my seizure. I will see Moosa clinging to the Ouch. So I do not know whether Allah will resurrect him before me a while will allow him to regain consciousness before me all whether Allah has exempted him from that strike of unconsciousness. And why, because musala they have Ethan's there. But the reason is musala a salon was struck unconscious in the dunya because he said to Allah soprano who would rather own the anvil a lake that allow Oh my Lord, show me yourself so that I can see Allah said to him, you will never be able to see me, but rather glance at that mountain. Then Allah revealed himself manifested Himself to the mountain, and
the mountain became dust. And Mussolini's Anam fell down unconscious. So he has already been seized by about one consciousness. So it is quite possible that Allah has exempted him from the unconscious the seizure of and consciousness on the Day of Judgment, because of this battle and consciousness in the dunya. In either case, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained this virtue of Musa alayhis salam, and actually told the people loudly you're only Allah Moosa do not declare me to be better than musala has a lot of such simplicity, such humility, we are unable to tolerate anyone else being praised in our presence. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was unable to tolerate himself
being praised in his apps.
And he reminded me
he always reminded people that I am this slave of Allah, a human being, time and time again. Allah subhanho wa Taala told him when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, we'll law him out, he'd want to finally folkman's ility and lithium zeleni Allah azza wa jal, in that Hadith of the Muslim hamba relate about uncinematic or the line, that By Allah, I do not wish that you elevate me above the rank that Allah has bestowed upon me. What would the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
imagine these words and contrast them with much of what is said about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam done in his name and supposedly for him.
He reminded everyone just as the Quran reminded everyone that all of the prophets of Allah are the servants of Allah and they are human beings
are the result of
their messengers law says in the Quran, their messenger set to them in natural Illa Bashara Mithra comm we are not we are not but men humans just like yourselves. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told, well intimate and mythical. Say I am only a human just like you. And time and time again the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reminded the Sahaba of the law that I am but a human being. I am that human being.
I'm delighted, so there'll be a lot the same. So how he relates at once. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was leading people in prayer in Salah as he always did.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made a mistake in Salah.
Abdullah saw themselves as either he shortened the prayer or lengthen that one of the two. So after Salah he performed what we call the two frustrations of error.
And then afterwards, he spoke to the people and said to them, Opie,
I am only a human being.
I feel like you and I forget just like you forget. So if I forget remind,
imagine he is a messenger of Allah. And yet there is no shame no embarrassment, in constantly to kept declaring that I am but the human being. I forget just like you. On one occasion, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, two people visited him. They angered him.
He shadow the alarm around her was presence but she didn't know what the conversation was, but she was
alert and aware that two people came to see him they spoke to him and then they left and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam actually became angry. He did become angry
and he sent them away in his anger. He actually spoke words to them he had words with them he scolded, which was very rare prophets, Allah La hidings and became angry scolded them, and told them to leave. They left.
So, opening a shadow the alarm on her then questioned him.
And instantly, no sooner had the left. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam turn to Allah Indra.
And do you know what he said?
He said, Allah.
I am but a human being. I become angry just as humans become angry. So Allah, anyone who I have cursed, abused or scolded, then make this a mercy and forgiveness for them on the Day of Judgment.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam constantly reminded people that he was only him the time and time again, all cinema how the law relates that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
Oh, people, you come to me with your disputes.
And at times, it's quite possible
that one of you is more eloquent, and more forceful in his argument than the other. So I rule in his favor, I actually judge in his favor, based on what I hear.
I am prettiman. So I rule in his favor based on what I hear. So if I have ruled in someone's favor, and he knows that the judgment does not belong to Him, especially in a dispute of wealth, or property or land, and then he still claims a share of his brother's wealth, based on my judgment, but knowing that he does not deserve it, and let him realize, let him know that I in my judgment by giving him that piece of land or wealth, I am merely giving him a piece of the pie.
So he should not take what these shows is that even though the prophets of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a messenger,
he reminded us he reminded his followers that he was a human being, and there was a possibility that people may come to him with a dispute. And in that dispute, someone may be more forceful, more eloquent, more persuasive in their arguments, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam not having knowledge of the unseen would rule in that person's favor, even though the rights actually belong to the other purse.
And that's why in under the headings related by robot year, been tomorrow with the love on her record by memoir in history, it's very beautiful Hadith. She says that on the day of my marriage, the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, she was extremely young, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to visit the family and in their rejoicing in their festivity and celebration of the marriage on that day. She says that some little girls were singing, and they were singing poetry. And as part of their couplets and their poetry, they praise the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And they said, well, Faena and the Wii U and yellow Murphy, you heard him and amongst us, there is a
prophet, who knows what shall happen tomorrow. Who knows what there is tomorrow. So until now, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had been listening silently. But as soon as he heard those, we never said anything. As soon as he heard those words, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very different, a lot
more than an hour a shadow of the alarm and how relates that once prophets of Allah on the day read, he was resting.
And they were too young girls
playing the drums
in the house or winning a shot of the alarm. There were young girls, it was a day of
profits a lot of work to do alaric Okay.
And as soon as he arrived, he saw the scene the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is lying down resting, his Ayesha, his daughter Leila and her here are two young girls playing the death and singing.
instantly. he objected and said
this in the presence of the Messenger of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him
Leave them all back. It's a day of aid. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam turned away and face the other direction. And the other man explained that, that move those words this Hadees showed says a lot. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tolerated such celebration and festivity on the day of eat, in his own household in his presence for the benefits of Chateau de la hanhart and the young girls. But having said that, he turned away and face the other direction. He He turned, although he allowed it for others, he in his nobility and majesty, he turned his back, but it did not be fits him.
It did not behold the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was extremely tolerant, and gracious, so on this occasion will be in tomorrow with the alarm and her says that these girls were singing in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam on the day of my marriage, he never said anything to them, he let them carry on. But when they said these words, in their poetry when they sang these words, well feanor in the Wii U and Jada Murphy, London, that amongst us, that is a prophet knows what there is tomorrow. He instantly spoke up and said, Do not say this. Carry on with whatever you were saying before, but do not say
this. And in the narration of the manager of the same Hadees The words are He then said,
No one knows what there is tomorrow except
no one knows what there is tomorrow except Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the moment someone praised him with words or with qualities and
characteristics that he believed did not belong to Him, and that did not belong to Him. straightaway, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam objected and correct. That was the humility of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in his mind, in his character, in his belief about himself. But how did that humility manifest itself? How did that simplicity manifest itself? It did so in many ways, the way he conducted himself with the Sahaba of the Allah and
the way he behaved with them. He was so humble, so simple, it's unbelievable. Abdullah had Nabil O'Farrell the Allah relates, in a hadith recorded by mercy in his son, he says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would never distain he would never turn up his nose, he would never refuse, even to accompany a widow or a poor person, and walk with them until he had fulfilled whatever need they had. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being the Messenger of Allah, he could actually be walking in the streets of Medina and as others how about the alarm, I can relate. An old widow could actually take him by the hand and lead him away because she needed his help. And
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would walk with
a poor person, a destitute man could actually a beggar could grab the hand of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam walk with Him, lead him away, seek his help, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not object. In fact, he would fulfill the wishes and the need of this poor beggar before releasing.
That was a humility. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would sit with people. I am quickly mentioning these examples, but in every single one of them, that is a lesson for us, we should compare ourselves. All of the examples I've given of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a humility, not what he displayed, what he believed about himself what he wants people to believe. hex has contrast that humility, with our own belief of ourselves. How do we view ourselves?
If someone praises us, do we feel uncomfortable? as a prophet sallallahu wasallam did to be long for people to praises or not. If someone
does not supposedly show us respect, as we say someone decisis disrespect says, How do we feel?
We feel we are deserving of titles and we are constantly reminding people of these titles. If someone calls us by our first name, we are offended
unless they are familiar family members. But if we have a title, we want to remind people we'll put it down on paper. We put it down as our title of address. We constantly remind people
Unless someone's very familiar with us and acquainted to us, it's a common phrase in English if someone says,
if someone is Mr. And the person calls them by their first name,
they are reminded It's Mr. Such and such to you, all, Lord, such and such to you.
And I address myself first, when a man left to have titles.
When an acronym is addressed without his title,
then of course shavon whispers to
the how, why is this person disrespecting you? But titles mean nothing.
Anyone can claim a title for themselves. The one who was given titles By Allah, who deserved all the titles, he repeatedly and consistently and continuously emphasized his name without titles, in writing, and in speech, lets us contrast our humility with that of the profits on the line he was.
And speaking of his behavior, which one of us as I'm delighted Nabil O'Farrell, the alarm sayings, that an old widow, a poor person could take the hand of the Prophet son of the law while he was in the lead him away, seeking his help.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not refuse but not decline in flattened facts, he would fulfill that need of the person how many of us can claim the same? How many of us
were always conscious of people addressing us first giving us Sadam first sometimes we in our arrogance we don't give some
we expect others to give us sometimes people give Salaam to us we don't reply.
If someone is
inferior in status and stature, in age in position in knowledge, sometimes we think to ourselves that why should I give Salaam to them he should be the first one giving me salah
and a pseudonym article villafranca relates to learn how to relate relates that under Article the alarm was walking he passed by a group of children and he said to them as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah whom and
then he related, that this is what the prophet said the law it was.
The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not sustain from giving salon to anyone. Absolutely anyone. In fact, when he being the Noble Messenger of Allah would walk in the streets and there will be groups of children playing Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not even ignore the children. He would actually say Salaam to the children.
That's how he behaved
when it came to associating with people who did he associated with Allahu Akbar.
Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says in the Quran, what I wrote in the DNA, the owner of bombilla, that he will actually read or watch
Malaika minisub human shaman Sadek. La, foto de Kooning in a valley mean, Waka fatahna
Ooh, la, la la, la la, la la. La la sala de Anima. Misha Shirky in Allah essays, addressing the prophets of Allah Almighty Who was sending them

and in this way, we have caused some of them to mislead the others. So that they say, But are these the people who Allah has favored amongst us?
Because alarm is alarm at the best number of those who are grateful. The meaning of these verses is as follows Abagnale erato de la horn himself relates in quarterback the manager and as well as others that what happened and I'm delighted to miss order the alarm
Separately relates in other books of heavy that what had happened is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Makkah.

they want to sit with the prophets of Allah.
But they frowned upon them looked down upon some of the people who surrounded the Prophet sallallahu it was

amount of knee acid.
So, hi Barbara de la de la jolla alarm will say that these people these and as well as others poor so how about are the alarm rang and they will be seated about around profits and alarm it was in them. Some of the Arab chieftains and the wealthy the nobility, the rich and the powerful, they would come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they would see all these people.
So because there was lower social classes and
the Arabs, they felt it beneath them, that they should sit in the company of such a riff rattling they used to regard them as riffraff. So they actually told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, oh, Mohammed, we are willing to sit with you and listen to you and converse with you. But when we are seated with you, this is a place where people come and go, and people from all over Arabia come here. And if they come here, and they see a seat sitting with you, we don't mind as long as you don't have this riffraff with you. But if they see a seat in the same gathering as this riffraff, they will look down upon us we do not wish the Arabs to speak of us in such a manner.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his desire to invite these people to religion, and in the hope that so how about the alarm? They could sit with him any other time? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was inclined to agree with them, that he would sit with them exclusively and not have these pulsar How about the alarm with him. Baba, Allah says Allah subhanho wa Taala actually revealed these verses of the Quran.
When I thought rodini, the owner of Bahama, that when I see that do not drive away those who call out to their Lord, morning and evening
if you'd and the end of the verse for the Konami navali mean, if you do drive them away, then all messenger of Allah usual be of the wrongdoers.
And in this way, the verse continues, we have caused them ie the operation others to deceive one another and mislead one another, so that they end up saying,
a heart without any human being in it. That Are these the ones that Allah has bestowed favours upon upon them amongst us, meaning that if Allah wanted to give the gift of Islam, why didn't he give the gift of Islam to us? We are the powerful We are the wealthy, the nobility, the rich, we are the honored ones. If Islam is a gift, then why is this gift given to this riffraff and not as so Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna says even that is a test in itself. In this way Allah has tested
a lot that a lot ends a verse by saying at least a lot will be at least the love of animals shirking
that does alarm not know who better Who is the most grateful? Allah knows exactly who to give his he man and his faith.
But anyway, the story is that the Sahaba of the alarm, who proceeded around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was inclined to remove them. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was warned by Allah do not drive away these companions Sahaba the Allahu says that what happened thereafter? Is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would seminars and allow us to sit with him so close to him that our knees would touch his knee
and these were the poor so how about all the
America? Yes, sir.
So hey, roomie, Abdullah was rude.
this was in MK, but in Medina, and these were the Sahaba of the Allahu Allah who were punished there was so poor, so penniless, so powerless, that they were the ones who were preyed upon, taken away individually and tortured.
Madalyn Murray acid
since he was a family from a family of freed slaves.
His father, yes, that his mother sumiya. It'll be a love. I mean, since they were a family of malaria freed slaves, they were taken away. And all three Father, Son and Mother, what we're taught, and eventually father and mother were killed
by a former freed slave was tortured, abandoned. The law was tortured to such a degree that after the hedge, after the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam above the law and removed his shirt and showed his back to
the law and that giant of a man when he that warrior woman, or the loved one, who had sustained injuries and moons in battle, when he saw the back of hubbub and ultra de la and that worrier giant began weeping and said by Allah, I have never seen such a back in my life. So that was hubub editor of the alarm. I'm delighted. So Heba Rooney, I'm delighted we screwed that up. So haber, who me again, was a man without family. He's famously known as a hate the Roman but as I keep on saying he wasn't a Roman, he was an Arab. So hey, what are the alarm was not a Roman, he was an Arab. He was one of the Arabs of the Northern Arabian tribes, who had been captured, just like Xavier, and I had
a third of the law and had been captured, and he had been sold in slavery. But when he was sold in slavery, he wasn't in Makkah, he was sold in slavery. And he actually grew up amongst one of the rival northern Arabian tribes, who were the vassals of the Byzantine Romans. As a result, he grew up amongst Arabs speaking Arabic, but he grew up in the Greek Roman counter culture, the Byzantine culture only because of his upbringing, in that culture, and his familiarity with the language was equalled Sahiba Rumi otherwise he wasn't a Roman he was a pure born, it was a pure error of error of race. So say Romeo de la one another slave, former slave, and Abdullah who was rude or the alarm,
the one who suffered beatings at the hands of the poor. Ah, these were the people picked on beaten, tortured, whipped, lashed their family members murdered.
They were considered worthless, penniless, destitute, powerless. They were the ones that we are as trampled on. And can you imagine the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sat with them? And they were, there was so badly tortured, so badly mistreated, so badly treated, so well treated, that after the hedger, not in the first or second year, but in the seventh year of his law, they still hadn't forgotten. That means.
So once of all, Sophia, and he came to ratify the treaty of her they beer.
And he came to Medina.
And he was walking in Medina, and the same group of Sahaba de la Harlem. So hey, a roomie. Abagnale biratnagar. And Maria said, we're all seated. So when they were seated, they saw double Sophia, because they were best friends. They saw double Sophia. And in their anger, he was with a worker of the law firm in their anger because of all that they have suffered. They spoke up. And they said, it seems as though the swords of a law have not yet found their place and the enemies of Allah, referring to all Sofia, so the Allah and he was a nobleman of the British, he recognized the position of abuse of yarn and he knew that he had cut
back or the alarm was familiar with the protocols of diplomacy and also cameras, ultimately a diplomat. He was the leader of the operation who had come to ratify the treaty. So he scolded the Sahaba of the law.
These hubbub ama so hey sohaib. Below he scolded them. And he said to them,
the immigration will say to him, is this what you say to the leader of the race and their master?
So they fell silent.
Somehow word, I think one of the some of them they complained to Rasulullah sallallahu it was and yes, they went to complain to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and they said, This is what boubakeur has said this. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has summoned abubaker and said oh bobak
do not speak to them in such a manner.
For if you do, you will anger them. If you anger them, you will anger a lot.
Whether Sahaba Roby Allah, Allah loves the simple and he commanded the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to sit with the simple. Allah loves us and
he commanded the messenger of a lot sits with a simple to keep the company of the simple.
And that's why
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cabomba the lover and says that he would then sit with us so close that our knees would be next to his knees. But then what would happen is that he would remain seated with us we would enjoy his company but then after a while the prophets of Allah hi Libras and when he needed to go, he would rise and leave and we would desire to remain seated with him for longer. So Allah actually revealed verses of the Quran to him was split enough to come and live in either honor above and below her that
you know, wacha versus suka what are
what are called Bhagwan Declan, our
mo? Allah says, The Messenger of Allah, keep yourself patiently seated with those who call out to their Lord morning and evening, seeking His countenance, what can human Do not let your gaze go beyond?
Do not let your gaze go beyond these people. Sahaba the alarm says after that verse, what would happen is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would sit with us, our knees would be touching his knees, he would not rise until we were
when we finish speaking to him for as long as we want to sit with him, we would then rise and go and the prophets of Allah items that would stand up after us
these were the simple phone
and I will say though, that either the alarm or and himself relates again, in Andy's record Bama ramblings Muslim, he's a once we were seated outside the masjid or a sort of last alarm it some of them. This was a large group of immigrants Sahaba the Mahajan on the porns. So we were seated.
A party was reciting the Quran in that group, and we were all silently seated, listen to him. We were so poor, that some of us are the only one cloth to cover himself in that group. And some of us because of the lack of clothing, they were huddling up to each other so that their clothes would mask their privacy.
We will see it and listen to the forum and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam emerged, and he came to us and stood at the edge of the group. When he stood at the edge of the group and greeted as the party who was reciting the Quran he suddenly stopped. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us, what were you doing? So he said, O Messenger of Allah, we were simply seated, listen to the body reciting the Quran.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then said, listen to his words. He said, All Praise be to that Allah
who has made amongst my Ummah, and my companions, those whom he has commanded me to patiently Be seated with.
And then he sat down amongst them. I will say that on the alarm, it says he sat in such a way that he sat in the middle of his making himself equal to us. And then he did this with his arms. So we all huddled up close to him in a circle. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressing, as he said, as he said, Oh, assembly of the poor emigrants receive my glad tidings of total and complete new and light on the Day of Resurrection. And that usual end agenda 500 years before the rich.
But the main part of the story is, he said, All Praise be to Allah, who has commanded me to remain patiently seated amongst such people have Martin and then he humbly sat down amongst them amongst the poor. That's how he was this was a company he loved.
I remember my father I had to learn healing.
one of the one of his unique qualities was, he was a, he was a very intelligent, highly intelligent, extremely learner, the annum of Dean.
And I don't say this as my father.
My father's teachers have given such a testimony, his companions, his colleagues, have given such testimony.
And that's my father had wished he could have
The most senior shave and teacher of or an unhealthy for fitting any mother or set anywhere. And this is a testimony of his own class develops.
But my father in his simplicity he concealed himself.
And one of his unique qualities was, indeed as part of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would sit with anyone
and I being his eldest son, sometimes I would go past and I would see him and he would, in a way hurt me as a son, because there will be my father, seated on a bench,
outside the masjid,
in any one of the streets in the park.
And who would be seated around him, not?
Not students, but individuals, who are just simple everyday folk. In fact, such individuals who would not find friendship and company with anyone else, they would be seated around my father.
And as a son, it would hurt me momentarily that I wish my father would be in a more noble position, ie, seated somewhere surrounded by scholars and students, as befits his position.
But instantly, then I would remind myself that Subhana Allah, this is a Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
for Allah chose simple people to surround the messenger hubub ama So hey, Abdullah minimus ruled Mira Mira bar and others. And Allah set of them what are the Lavine the owner of the home builder that will actually not drive them away, was stupid enough sick man lenient on our bottom builder that when Archie and remain patiently seated with those who call out their Lord, morning and evening, this was the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And that's how he was with the Sahaba of the alarm
in his gate, in his eating, in his mannerisms, in his life at home, the simplicity of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam you know, bands. Today when we travel, how do we travel and lead
a lead a king, a Moloch, lead leave their examples, we as normal people, we like to travel
the best of cars,
the best of transport, we can't get it but if we could, we would love to have a convoy and an entourage and he was a messenger of Allah and how would you travel? As Allahu Akbar Breda hora de Allahu anhu relates it
because my my Hamblen is Muslim,
that once a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was walking in Medina
and a companion saw him walking, and he was riding on a donkey.
So he came up to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and then he shifted his place on the donkey and moved back. And he said to the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or messenger of Allah, climb on the donkey and ride, so he motioned him to climb to the front of the donkey. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, learn that
ethic Elantra jalahalli that you are more deserving of the front of your animal than I am.
It's considered the seat of honor. It's different cultures. In some cultures when people are chauffeured.
They are chauffeured in the back of the car, so many of these luxury cars that they have long wheelbase because the chauffeured individual is not Sita is not driving and is not the main passenger who's seated at the back with all the comforts and luxuries. So in many cultures, people are chauffeured at the back that's the seat of honor. But in some cultures, the seat of honor is not at the back even today, in cars, it's at the front. So it's it's always considered the fact that if you carry a guest of honor make sure you put your seat them in the seat of on either the front or at the back. So the province of the law it will send them
the companion shifted backwards and vacated the front spot on the donkey on a donkey. Master magnificent horse, or a proud camel, but a donkey and it's up to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or or messenger of Allah climb onto the donkey. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't love it, but he did not sustain traveling on a donkey. He did not think it's better to continue walking. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
themselves, you are more deserving of the front seats unless you give it to me. So the companion said I have given to your messenger of Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam planned on to the front of the donkey and row, pillion or the other companion rode pillion with him on the donkey. He would walk and if someone gave him a ride, it would be on a donkey didn't matter. He wrote on a donkey rode on a mule. He rode on a horse, he rolled on a camel. For him it was a mode of transport, and he would walk and not only that one or the other your loved one relates to heavy Another handy thing is Muslim rather than a liberal or the law when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam dispatched to Yemen.
So when he dispatched him to Yemen imagine the scene he is sending more either the alarm to Yemen as a teacher as a as an ambassador. Wow. And as he is bidding them farewell. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not dismiss him with a wave of the hand from his seat in the machine,
that you are an ambassador gold depart. No, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accompanied him for a long while. While tomorrow there'll be a lot more I was riding out and do you know how he accompanied him? What are the rhodiola Horan? He himself released this hadith he was riding he was riding and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was walking on the ground next.
Beneath is around and looking up and speaking tomorrow that are the alarm. Then he said tomorrow that'll the alarm on Oh, this was later in his life. So
it is highly possible that after this year, you will not see me okay?
Or that if you come you will pass by my machine or you will pass by my grave.
Tomorrow there'll be a lot one burst out weeping
burst into tears. But the moral of the story is the simplicity of us all lots of love and evil send them one or the other. The alarm was writing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accompany them on foot in order to bid him farewell. No.
He wasn't pretentious in the least.
No airs and graces, simple, humble.
In his walking.
I speak about he never had a convoy. He never had an entourage and delight and I'm rhodiola and relates and I have a record my mom moved out in the sun and he says, My Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yaku Tolkien
What are your rajala never was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seem to be eating, reclining.
And never were to men ever following in his footsteps, ie we can imagine a leader. In fact normal people we love to have our little entourage we feel important if one person is walking with us, or we have a gang walking with us or a group walking with us and even teachers.
People opening doors and picking up shoes and following
in their footsteps. Allahu Akbar, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abdullah a number of the lower emphases never would you find two people walking behind?
When the Sahaba of the Allah would walk with Him, what would he do jabiru be a lover and relates to howdy in
Muslim, humble he says when people will be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they would walk in front of him and they will leave his rear for the angels.
And in the threats by hacking the Prophet sallallahu Sallam actually said when you walk walk in front of me and leave my rear for the angels. Why? as the last agent sort of being one of melodica Tovar, the vertical he and the angels are standing in guard behind him.
So this How about the lover and we would actually leave the rear of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the angels and that they would occupy the front they would walk in front of him. He didn't mind.
He didn't want to be walking in front and others behind him no profits and the lights would actually tell them you walk in front. That's if they were with him. Otherwise he would walk alone. He wanted no convoy he wanted no entourage. He wanted no huge company that was a messenger of law. In his walking in his eating. He at simply never would to color dishes. I in the sensor to home meals have two different dishes ever find their place on the table and the spread of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he adds humbly his set he adds in a humbleness
The tradition was especially with the society Persians and the Byzantine Romans, that culture affected the culture of the Arabs. The Arabs didn't have that economy called military minds, as these empires did. And they were of the desert as a result, a lot of their culture in terms of diet, dress, cuisine.
They have their own cuisine, of course, but a lot of their diet, dress, fashion sense, etc.
All of this was affected by the society, Persian culture, and the Byzantine Roman culture. And part of that culture in those days was that how would people eat, they would eat surrounded by cushions, reclining on cushions, either completely reclining on one arm, one elbow, seated in a very luxurious manner, and that's how they would feast and dine. These were normal people, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being even the era even the Bedouins how in their tents. They would be surrounded by Christians and they would eat our beds on the floor, but reclining on couches on cushions. So
of the large number of the old alive Ramsay's never was a prophet Silla. It was seldom seen, eating, reclining, reclining on anything, he wouldn't recline against the wall, he wouldn't recline to one side, he wouldn't recline on any couch or cushion. He would eat simply, and in fact, in these leads, but I'm delighted to whistle the alarm on this remarkable, he says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He says once I gave a goat as a gift to the Messenger of Allah.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sat down to eat, and he sat down to eat, not a snack, but he sat down to eat to a feast of a cooked goat. That was a special occasion. So how did he set the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sat on his knees, ie, you know the way we sit in the shadowed insula. So, the four legs beneath our fans, the way we sit in Salah, in the shower, so he sat on his knees in that manner, and he lent forward and he began eating, so a bedroom was present, and he was accustomed to even the bedroom eating in a fashionable manner. So he said, Man,
so what kind of sitting is this? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his reply was in the La Jolla and he had been karema one image only Jabara. Marita, he said, Indeed, Allah has made me a noble servant and slave, he has not made me an arrogant tyrant.
That is a similar manner of eating. That is how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam acts, the way he acts was simple the way he talks the way he spoke the way he carried himself, the way he walked the way he wrote
an article on the Allaha and was very close to him. Since he was one of the his, his pageboy. And his humility was such that under the moniker of the alarm was gifted to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam by his mother, almost the name of the alarm rang her as a pageboy and an attendant an errand boy, how did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam treat him with arrogance?
She gave him as a servant
at the age of eight or 10.
And as sort of the Allahu anhu says, and the greater Bible Hardy and others for 10 years, I serve the prophets of the law hidings. And in 10 years, never did he want say off to me
is off. So
that is off, never wants to say off to me, even though he was a child. Never once did he asked me why didn't I do something when I should have done it? Never once did he say to me, why did you do something when I shouldn't allow in 10 years, so it was very close to him. And it's automatic or the alarm describes the habits or sort of loss of the learning how he was,
as I related earlier, he would give Salaam to children.
And so the alarm or anger relates to that famous Hadith about the woman, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed by a woman who was kneeling before a grave she was weaving.
Her family member had done she was grieving she was weep. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed by her and said to her de la smiddy fear Allah
and be patient. So in her grief, she never recognized him. So she turned to him and she said to him in a candy
away with you, for you have not been struck.
By my calamity and misfortune, you have not suffered the way I have suffered so away with
prophets alarm it was on carried on. Later people told her that was a messenger of Allah. So she came to the house and the words have understood the alarm and Mercedes. When she came to the house, she did not find any doormen.
There were no guards. There were no doormen.
She called for the messenger he emerged. And she said to him, on messenger of Allah, forgive me, I did not recognize you. So the prophets of Allah leaves them said to her in them a saboteur in the EU law, that patience is at the first shock.
So that was a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no doormen, no Gods nothing. He would speak to children. And so the alarm says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when someone would meet
him, I'm telling me the related headache when someone needs him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not withdraw his hands until the other person had withdrawn his hands first, when he agreed.
Nor would the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when someone would speak to him, he would speak to him facing so he would never speak from the side.
In fact, the urn says that's a sign of arrogance. Well, I had the cleaners that do not turn your cheek away in arrogance from the people. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he spoke to someone who would face them. And not only that, and so the Allahu anhu says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will not turn away until the other person turned away.
That was his simplicity that was his humility.
And never in the same Khadija says, never would the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam allow his knees to protrude beyond anyone else's needs knees while seated amongst his companions. That means that if he was seated in a line, then the most important person is protruding from the line, so that everyone can see him. But the province of the law it was sudden them, he would sit in line with the other companions, and make sure that his knees were not protruding beyond the line of knees of the other companions. He was so conscious of that. And one interpretation of this is that he would not extend his legs towards anyone. He was the Messenger of Allah, and yet he would sit humbly before
In another Hadith again with a ban on Timothy, and a Santa Monica viola, and Newton closely said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he would ride a donkey, he would visit the sick, he would attend.
He would attend funerals, he would do all of these things. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not disdain reinigen donkey, he would
regularly go to funerals, he would regularly visit the sick visit the URL, and one more thing. And so the alarm says, and this is the fourth characteristic, he says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would accept the Dharma and the invitation of even a slave.
It wasn't the case that only the rich and powerful and mighty would have their invitations accepted. A simple slave could invite the Messenger of Allah who would go to him, and I end with just one heavy
shadow of the alarm on her. She was the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and so the alarm law one was pageboy in attendance, but even he did not know him, as well as in Chateau de la Juan knew him. And how does she describe him?
Amanda hardy relates heavy from the alarm einheiten when she was asked by someone that what would the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do in the privacy of his house?
Beautiful question. What would the Messenger of Allah do when he closed the doors to the public, and he was in the privacy of his home. So shadow the alarm here relates this hadith in Bukhari and this same idea related by a man humbling as Muslim as well as others. So the information I gave is a combination of all of these ahaadeeth on a shadow the alarm on her saying that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the privacy of his home, he would be engaged in the service of his family,
in looking after his family, then when Salah time would arrive, he would leave and go for Salah. And in other how the other narrations of the same or the she says he would do what men do. These are her words, he would do what men do in their homes, and she elaborates what would the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do? And this isn't in here is a lesson for us for as men
We consider it's been easy for us to do housework.
If we ever hear of someone
doing housework, washing the dishes, vacuuming, cleaning up, then we snigger. We smirk. We grin, we turn away.
Law. This was a messenger of Allah, the greatest man of men, more manly than any man could ever hope to be. And yet, we need a shuttle The law says when he was in the privacy of his home, he would serve his family garden if he mentioned it that he would be in the service of his family and what service she goes on to explain. She says he would do what men do in their homes. He would milk the goat with his own hands. He would repair his sandals, he would stitch his clothes, he would be allowed his clothes, he would remove lines from his clothes.
He would do all of these things. He would serve his family.
That was a messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. His simplicity is humility, even in the privacy of his home.
One could go on a lot, but it's quite late. I suffice with this. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala enables us to follow in the footsteps of the messengers of Allah it was Sunday I pray that Allah blesses us with even a share of the humility that the wild are and the simplicity of the Noble Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, for as we learned in the previous speech, he who humbles himself and as simple for the sake of Allah, Allah Subhana. Allah will elevate but he who is arrogant, Allah subhanho wa Taala will base and humiliate and the greatest example of simplicity and humility for us. Is that to the messenger some of the love it was, was a lot was the lamotta after
he was sworn in to Vienna Mohammed the he was a huge marine panicle lot more than the controller learn either he learned
