terms of the narrator Hadith that he graded as Hassan, he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Elijah lamina shaytaan, that haste is from the devil. And there is disagreement as to whether this is an authentic hadith and prophesy Saddam. But the commentators of this hadith say that the meaning is completely correct, because we have other Hadith, where the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praised the companion for his home while Anna right for his forbearance and his basically the opposite of agita the opposite of being hasty for taking his time. And so one of the things the prophets of Allah, what He said, I'm just trying to get us to think about is

00:00:42 --> 00:00:53

accent, that having a sound, which we all know is something that is expected of us and a good thing for us to try to do. It takes time.

00:00:54 --> 00:01:40

I had a boss once that said, never apologize for taking the time required to do the job well. And I think that kind of gets at what we're talking about here. In order to do something, well, it's going to take time. And if you're in a rush, if you're hasty, if you're just kind of you know, good enough, you know, this is going to result in poor outcomes, whatever thing that you're trying to do, it's not going to be good, it's going to look like a quick job. And so, yeah, Muslims, we can benefit from this advice by slowing down. By taking time, I can even just point to our conversations with other with people, you know, these days with our busy schedules and our smartphones and this

00:01:40 --> 00:01:53

and that. Sometimes, you talk to somebody and you get the feeling like they're already gone. Like they already got up and left. And they're just the body still in front of you. But their mind is elsewhere. It's either in their phone, or

00:01:54 --> 00:02:25

you know, or they're walking out the door, everything about their kind of their mannerisms is telling you that they need to be going. Now everybody's busy and everybody has appointments to keep and things like that. But we don't always need to be in that mode. Right? You can slow down when someone's talking to you. You can focus your attention on them. You can make them feel listened to. And the kinds of benefits that happen from doing that are hard to even

00:02:26 --> 00:02:32

to even measure when people feel listened to and they feel heard and they feel like you are paying

00:02:34 --> 00:02:47

that you care for them with how you focus on them and how you slow down for them and things like that everybody feels good when that happens, and so the more that we do that the stronger our relationships will become
