That's a very dangerous space in the life of a person. And I think we can all bear witness to some of the major catastrophes, if I can call them that in recent years. And if we sort of scope and deep deep down into the ultimate cause of this disconnect and breakdown and catastrophe, I think we can easily say that boils down to a lack of a lack of energy. And that is why Mr. Malik, is reported to, or the mother of Mr. Malik Robbins reported to have said that when she passed one female teacher, Tisha, she said, unlimited and livable added to our liver who learned that teaching matters before you teach him. And Abdullah, even for him, Allah
also very eloquently said that we learned man is for more years
that we spent learning.
If we look at the data we're seeing today,
given the volatile environment that we live in, especially in the West, it might be difficult to observe that our, with our mouse might be difficult and in fact, it is difficult. It's not the same as before. But there's even a stronger tool to invite people to start with before people hear, because before people hear you, they see
Right, right, unless you the person is already shouting, then they will hear you before they see but in normal circumstances, people see you before they hear. And when you look at the name of the lab,
and we all should, again,
you should pass salutations to
If we look at the life of Muhammad Salah, love it yourself, we see that I shall be Allah says about him Canada, who
his character was.
His character was different. He was a moving
along to Canada, Dinah commanded us to take guidance from him, and to follow in his footsteps.
Today, unfortunately, we live in a time where Islam is heard about from tapes, and read about in books.
Unfortunately, in most circumstances, Islam is not seen in the Muslims, that some of the trilemma had two very difficulties a big difficulty. What did they say? They said that judge Islam based on its sources, and don't get these numbers from the Muslims that you see today.
Right is a travesty. The statement is correct. But again, we need to ask ourselves that the fact that a statement like this has been passed, we really have to introspect.
We really have to introspect and ask ourselves a question that what have we done, that
Islam is not being seen, and we should tell them of the kind of work that is not as been documented, because imagine if it was a document.
So these topics of law and discussing the qualities of the reverse of man are manifesting, especially in this day and age and ask Allah subhana wa tada to revive this career in our homes, in our medallions in our communities, for Islam, to pay off everything to pay off our worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and to care of our interactions with the servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
If we look at the statements of the Sahaba of the
famous statement of
Abu Salah man
is it abusive man?
What is it?
This was from pleasure.
And perfection is farmers.
semana de he was asked that this prophet of your son allow it was and
he said there was nothing good, except you talking to us and there was nothing bad except that you warned us against and he even taught us the way we should relieve ourselves in the laboratories.
And open the books often you find chapters dedicated to this the etiquettes of a Muslim
When he relieves himself or herself,
he was alone, in his lifetime of
the time that he was a Prophet taught us everything good, that will benefit us in this world in the next. And he won't know everything that will be detrimental to us both in this world, and how we use our times how we use our hands, how we use our feet, how we interact with our parents, how we interact with our wives, with our siblings, with our colleagues, with those under our sphere of influence, and so on. And so everything has been taught to us by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And if we look at the [???]tier, we find that visually, if we look, if we look at the evidence is collected, we see that the Sharia has given a great importance to our internal aspects,
rather than our external experts. And for those who read books pertaining to
personalities, and so on and so forth. The psychologists, they discussed this concept of personality traits and character traits, right? They discussed this,
many, many years ago,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah doesn't look, Indeed, Allah doesn't look at your bodies and your outside appearances. Rather, what matters is your heart as well as your deeds. Right? So these are kind of traits, and the these corners of psychology telling you that
with the advent of the 19th century, the importance began being given to personality traits, how people looked, how they handled themselves, whether they were extroverts, how well they went to the interview, and spoke, what atmosphere they created, for example, in the room that they entered, and so on, and so forth. People who are judged based on personalities, they could have been the worst of people lock the doors. But if they showed themselves to be the best of all people, they were judged on that personality, they could have been the poorest of people who only own one designer suit. But if you want to design the suit to that important gathering, he was just as rich man, why? Because he
wore that designer suit, he must be rich, nobody can really but he has.
Right? So it wasn't a matter of character traits. It was a matter of personality traits. And the same psychologists say that, to be honest, the true and real trait is the characteristic trait. Why? Because the characteristic traits are what comes out at times of adversity, at times of adversity, when things become difficult, you see right through the personality traits.
And did it
once question a person when he praised a fellow Muslim says, Did you travel with him? Did you do business with him and so on. And so because when you travel with someone, or you enter into a business contract with someone, in many cases, you spot witnessing those character traits, the two plates that are hidden behind the foundation powder, if we can say that, right, you know, the female Foundation, right? So it covers makeup. So the personality trait is a makeup it covers the character trait, but when push comes to shove, the characteristics show and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us this from before. In fact, he said, that intimate paragraph within me that Allah
subhanho wa Taala doesn't look at anything from your actions besides the intentions that you had when those actions were performed.
Right. And this also kind of word can also say that in your slaughter and sacrifice is not the blood in the flesh that we reach is Allah subhana wa COVID it's the taqwa that reaches Allah Subhana Allah for that tough what was the essence of you actually slaughtering the animal tells us during the rites of Hajj. So Islam has given credence and a lot of importance to these character traits, these character traits, and this is what we will learn in Sharma in these lessons. And even if we don't, then we'll come to as I said, and I didn't tell the organizers of this program that it is impossible to discuss the qualities of a man in a day, let alone one hour. I mean, I'm thinking of designing a
two day course based on the qualities of development.
But the main thing is that we take benefits. The main thing is that we take benefit again, we're not here to data collect. I'm not here to throw upon new data so that you get to go home with it. No, I'd rather send you home with aspirations, right with aspirations to be better.
As well as the ability to inspire others to be better because that is who we are.
We are active people and proactive people, right? We are active people and proactive people will leave us to good character. My dear brothers and sisters,
for some loss of love It was reported in the salon in 2012 said
you will make it online. Let us ask ourselves how many times do we make this to
say Oh Allah, just as your beautified by external beauty.
As you can see by my external UTI, my character, we must
understand of servants of Allah, that the heaviest thing on the scales of good deeds on the day of piano is good
as mega coup de
yo lt era
and in that in
that the heaviest things on the scale from the dealer, there will be good character. In fact, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a believer can attain the status of those who observe to lay, and those who fast the voluntary, fast just is good.
Through your good character, Allah will give you the rewards of those who spent the night in prayer while you sleep. And those who fasts for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala what you eat.
So if we take anything from the city today,
let's take home a photo beautify our character, and bring down this character, let the non Muslims see Islam before the heal. Let us Let them come to us and say tell us about this because this is strange, what you have done is only norm in our times.
He told us that glad tidings to the strange ones. Be strange. Be strange, show this Islamic character in a time when characters
also kind of work. In the first it tells us that the man is servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala they are those that you have to know how they walk on this ad,
which you when
they work on the cell was humorous.
They will understand
this how they will they will work a walk on this earth as if the God's gift to mankind. Right.
But we know that person Excellent.
So they don't walk on this earth as if the God's gift to mankind remember the story of
when they were entering Palestine. And he was walking. And then he was told
because these are emperors and kings, and and you know you're going through this litigation, right.
when he tried it, he didn't like
it increased in him something which he didn't like that into some of the qualities of Chevron, he didn't mark and he preferred to be a very a strange one do that which is not normally that show people that he can be that you think Emperor is always have arrived. He has the salary of the Muslims, he came
he came walking. These are very bad man
who has helped his students since he was in, he was an ocean of knowledge. Even our TAs who the province of a lover it was lm grabbed him and said Allah homophobia who didn't want to live with that, Oh Allah grant him the understanding of the and the knowledge of I've seen this so heavy all the time. When say when Sally had to go somewhere, he would bring his ride center.
And he would bend down to lift this aid even fabric onto this cap onto his right.
And when he when he would say leave that we don't do that, what are you doing? He would say this is how we should respect our roadmap.
We have a long way to go. But this is this is the way of the setup of high speed sensors, right.
These are those that are
guided to So following the footsteps. This one Allah subhanho wa Taala said about his ambition. And the poet said
that those are our fathers who bring me people like those today. Those who are rejected. They were true. Many
Today we like to make
a request made from the two sevens of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
These are those that woke the earth with humidity. And not only that, it's not just
personality traits. When you see them, they look, they look humble, it's a character trait as well. It's the reality and essence of their power.
And when the ignorant addressed them, they address them back with peaceful words.
So these are people who have correct character traits as well as correct personality traits, because somebody can look humble in his work, but let me be the person addressing for itself. And then you see the character come up, but these people have to character when they are insulted or spoken to by the little ones a peaceful
humbleness or servants of Allah. And oh Children of Adam, is the opposite of arrogance. And arrogance is a blameworthy characteristic for arrogance was the way of police me because of
me almost kind of protect us from when Allah
Allah, Allah Subhana. Allah says in Surah, an ayah, about Allah subhana wa tada says,
Call upon Allah.
Julie Adam, first idea to Illa Emily's lemmya
says, we created you and refresh your view. And then we told the angels to go straight to you. So they're frustrated, except Please let me come in a surgeon. He wasn't from the words. He wasn't from the ones who frustrated.
So I must kind of work I said.
Judah took a must. I said what prevented you from prostrating to him when I created it? What did he say?
He said I am better than
corner with any
created me from smokeless fire, and you create a new format.
Isn't this the height of arrogance?
This is the height of arrogance.
And this is a sin in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
understand our servants of Allah, that arrogance is not from the wake of the beauty. And we need to show that we do everything in our capacity to read ourselves from arrogance for the arrogant ones will not go to
protect us. Pride prevents people from gentlemen after
he sees no one who has an atom's he says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that no one who has an essence wave of arrogance in his heart will entertain.
That should be enough for us. No one who has an atom's worth of weight in his heart will engender. So somebody asked and said O Messenger of Allah, what is the man likes his clothes and shoes to max his arrogance? We would like
to show the blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us and this is also from thanks to Allah cicada who
asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said, Allah is beautiful and he loves
and against means rejecting the truth and looking down
So here is a clear definition from comedy parody lab, some of them defining.
It was very true The doctor was given a promo.
Matt said the messenger from la sala love it. He said, Whoever lets his garment tread along the ground out of pride. Allah will not look at him on the Day of Resurrection.
sometimes my garment slips down on one side, at least I pay attention to it.
And the prophet SAW love it was said unto him, you are not doing that.
Now we're not discussing the tip of the trousers below the ankles, but we discuss in detail via from the head many times we need this, Heidi
We data collections.
What did they say about this? What are the evidences? How do we respond to the evidences that's good, that's good accompany that. But we should also extract the topic, we should also extract the telopea. And we learn from this again the lesson of analytics and that we should stay away from
private servants of Allah. And oh Children of Adam, is not befitting for anyone in the creation besides Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And whoever seeks to compete with a lot, some kind of words, in this price, then Allah subhana wa tada will wreak vengeance upon this person and make things difficult for you.
outside the country, and
they say that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
is the government is becoming
and the pride is his cloak. Pride is his club, and whoever seeks to compete with Allah subhanho wa Taala concerning these two than Allah subhanho wa Taala punish them.
So if you have an atom's worth, understand when competing, you know competing with the other creation of Allah Subhana beuter and who can win the competition with Allah azza wa jal.
He says that this is how this is the rage and in all the texts that have come dealing with this particular heading
that says that pride is his club. Remember? No, he says this is how the narrations have come regarding arrogance and the cloak of Allah subhanho wa Taala time and he says that clunkier refers to a lot of words. And maybe something omitted, which is meant that our last panel says whosoever seeks to compete with me concerning pride. And concerning my right so now whenever we gives us an explanation about this ad, and it's important that we go back to the explanations of throw them off. And the reason why I've chosen the explanation is because this is a Muslim. And you know, he has a very famous explanation of Sahih Muslim. So whenever we deal with matches with a muscle panel with
Tyler, and he's maintained his attributes, and so on and so forth, it's very important that we go back and confirm our understandings based on the teachings of the word of mouth before it's
one of the signs of arrogance.
He said that the signs of arrogance is rejecting the truth. And this is discussed in the
that you correct somebody, this person knows that what you're saying is right, but they still choose to
antagonize them, and work against your instruction. Why? Because that's the bottom line. That is the bottom line.
In levena, yes, be rude. And even those who are arrogant with the customer, they know that Allah is one they know that Allah is the only one worthy of worship and they know that they should worship Allah based on the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but
irrespective of the knowledge of these entities and elements and concepts, they choose to disobeyed This is
our protectors. This concept of IBM data is also from print, this is a sign of pride. Rejecting the truth is a sign of practice. And saying, I am better is a sign of pride, we should never ever, ever feel better than the next person, irrespective of our race, irrespective of our financial standards, irrespective of our material wealth, irrespective of our education, irrespective of our lineage, our background, and so on. And so we should never ever feel I imagine, even in our worship,
the more worship you do, the more you should fear Allah subhana wa that we know that the pious predecessors before us used to say that the health of this Deen is knowledge
and the help of this knowledge is to practice
and the habit of practicing upon knowledge is to feel
Not that you become complacent, feel more that's part of our lives blessed me with this event that has been accepted.
So there is no room for a method in this regard. And I
and told him that when you look at
The people of India they look at those who Allah subhana wa tada has been blessed with the same amount of blessing that is given. For in this manner, you will think Allah subhanho wa Taala the way he deserves to be
and he will realize the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And we are taught as well by the pious PT sessions, that when it comes to the worship of Allah Subhana, WA Tada, they look at those who are above you and better than you in worship, don't look at those who are under you don't say
look at the person in the first
panel by joining the in the third row. But
when he's reading the second Gemma, I'm okay.
Never ever feel safe from the point of analysis, rather than look at those lines, the first line and look at those who began the Salah was the man
so that you aspire to become better.
So never ever feel better for the yardstick in knowing who is better servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam is a
is a must
lead the town in the account
that we created you in different tribes in different colors, different shapes, and backgrounds and so on and so forth. Why? Why? So that you can recognize each other,
we all look the same.
We all look the same, same color, same color, same hairstyle, same beard style, same body
weight, and you look around and so I'm looking at me, looking at me right looking at yourself, wherever you look, how boring would life be right? So, what he does differently, so that we can recognize each other not so that we can start saying I am better than him and she is better than her and so on and so forth. Rather Allah says in the economic community that was that the yardstick of knowing who is better is tougher and not there is no one from amongst us in this dunya who will know the level of his own support
let alone anybody else's stuff, except after we pass away.
So servants of Allah take this, take this lesson.
Among some kind of web sites, the second quality regarding these people,
the Riverwalk man, and he says that very bad, man are those that say peaceful, peaceful words. As I cited for you earlier, I cited for you lessons, but how
gives us some idea in terms of how we even address our last panel will try and speak about the sharir has gone to great lengths to teaching us that this term of ours is a means of making us and the means of greatness both in this world and the now I spoke for one hour on the tongue and that talk is online. If you do a search for the goodly words, inshallah, you will listen to a little detail we talked about last time, it's easy for us to grasp
forgiveness from any mistakes. However, if you all could, it would be beneficial inshallah. So for the talk, listen to the talk and see what the Sharia has taught us about the tongue.
For if we can correct the tongue, we have a great chance of being from the bed or recommend. Right, so I won't Delve too deep into the parsing of
are those that when they meet the ignorant and they don't address them, they address them with Sarah is very important and important because if any given person speaks and the scholar
