salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Today inshallah I have selected the following quote from the book better me. And that is we can compromise many things, but never values and principles. See, there are many people who may disagree and get into debates over a

00:00:33--> 00:01:01

few things here and there. And sometimes we really get stuck with our own opinion and we never let go of our ego and we sometimes fight with one another quarrel over these things and we never let go of our own opinions. Now, what are the things that we should compromise and let go and what are the things that we should never let go and we should always stick by them as our principles and values. For example, look at the life of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

When there were

00:01:04--> 00:01:50

treaties and agreements between the Muslims and the disbelievers back in the days, we know of the story of social phobia or the Treaty of today be aware the Qureshi people came to the prophet SAW Selim to write an agreement that let's let's have peace, for sometimes for 10 years, we will have peace, no one will attack any of either side. And the professor immediately agreed and they wrote the agreement, but the agreement stated at the end, Muhammad are smaller law, and that was where the prophet SAW Selim are supposed to sign or you know, have his sealed on and sapana lai la lien? The the disbelievers the disagree, they say no, we we don't believe that you are the Messenger of Allah,

00:01:50--> 00:02:33

you know that you are Mohammed, the son of Abdullah. So he the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had choices he had a choice with either to let go of the title and save, you know, hundreds, if not 1000s of his companions from spilling of blood, or, you know, stick to the title and then war will be waged again for many years to come. But the Prophet sallallaahu Selim out of wisdom, mercy, and he decided to compromise he say no, remove the Messenger of Allah and right, you know, Mohammed, the, the son of Abdullah, even the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim, they did not like that fact. So the prophets Allah, Allah Sam himself, he told him show me where is the, the wording, the Messenger of Allah,

00:02:34--> 00:03:16

because the person didn't know how to read, and he erased it by himself. So this is one example of compromising for a greater good. However, when we told the profits of last Helen, to leave the dean, to leave Islam, to forget about the power to worship their gods for one year and our God for one year, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam refused, boldly he said while long By Allah, if they put the sanoma right hand in the moon on my left, for me to leave this deal, which is from Allah, it's a matter of principle and value that will never leave. So learn my brothers and sisters of the matters that you may let go and learn also what are the things that you should stick by and live by for the

00:03:16--> 00:03:22

rest of your life? May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the right understanding, see tomorrow inshallah with another coat of better me
