To be sweet in our day, to be sweet in our day I will speak to people with kindness, speak to them with respect, speak to them with respect, repel evil with good, Allahu Akbar, even if they speak against you repel that with goodness. And this is the third point that I want to share with you from the Tao of Ibrahim, because when his father spoke to him harshly and said, if you don't stop, I will stone you and get away from me. Right? Right. This is what his father in effect said, What did Ibrahim Alayhi Salam say? What did he say? He said, Salah.

00:00:45--> 00:00:52

He repelled that evil with goodness. With that, which is awesome, and better.

00:00:54--> 00:01:06

If somebody called you names, address them with sweetness repel that evil with goodness, and this is the third lesson from the ayat which we learn from the, from the from, from the ayat which we read.

00:01:38--> 00:01:38

Allah.

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

He wants to be dutiful to his father. And yes, Ibrahim did seek forgiveness until Allah subhanho wa Taala taught him that his father is destined for the hellfire. Thus, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam had to stop and he stopped seeking forgiveness from that point onwards from that point onwards. This is the third lesson brothers and sisters, no pettiness repel evil with goodness, and this is from the highest stages of a person's character and belief. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the Quran, the ability to make your enemy, your greatest friend and supporter. He says indefatigability here is

00:02:21--> 00:02:38

the bane a carabiner, who I doubt can never actually you'd have Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar that repel that evil with that which is better, so that perhaps you will convert your enemy and make him your greatest supporter. Allahu Akbar.
