Look, my brothers and sisters in Islam, our ultimate goal in this dunya is to arrive to a stage where we are guaranteed the highest level of general when I interact with people on a daily basis and I look at the condition that we're all going through and compare that condition with the early generations that were described by the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him as the best hieronymous for me, Thumbelina Luna home fumar levina Luna home, the best of all people is my generation, then the one to follow, and then the one to follow. The Prophet was describing the condition of the best of the best of the best, So who are we to be compared with all of them, but still our ultimate

00:00:53--> 00:01:33

request from Allah subhanaw taala in every prayer that we make is to be with them in Jan. Yet my brothers and sisters in Islam The reality is we don't have an account a lot of prayers, we don't have an account, a lot of charities, days of fasting, we don't have even jihad in our lives. We struggle sometimes to wake up for failure, we struggle with walking few steps to the masjid. So if you feel that your level of Eman is so low, and sometimes when you read the stories of the Sahaba of the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim, you feel depressed because you say will I really be with them on the Day of Judgment, look at what they do. Sometimes they will pray late at night 100 prayer

00:01:33--> 00:02:16

with five two, sometimes even nine, just nine parts of the Quran standing late at night praying Allah subhanaw taala people amongst us who will stand for 30 minutes, we will call them heroes, you have done a great job Marshal a lot of work a lot. This is not to discourage you from praying late at night. This is not to discourage you from fasting every Monday and Thursday. This is not to discourage you from all the acts of iveta that had lifted up the early generations to the ranks and status. This is just to acknowledge our reality, and to find a different approach that would lead us to the same root Gen network for those the highest level of Jannah in sha Allah, Allah with the

00:02:16--> 00:02:53

companions, with the righteous and when we arrive to that conclusion, my brothers and sisters when you know yourself, your ability, your capacity of worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala, you will be at peace you say you know what i can do same thing that the companions and the prophets used to do, but I've got something else that I can develop, I've got something else that I can do that would insha Allah to Allah bring me closer to them on the Day of Judgment engine in sha Allah of time. So what is the ultimate solution that will bring us closer to them in general and charlotta There is nothing better than perfecting your manners. That's the only thing my brothers and sisters and we

00:02:53--> 00:03:32

will explore now a few of the narrations of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam they put great emphasis on the importance of perfecting our manners in this dunya before meeting our last panel. The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said in El Mina Lu de Cuba husna Hello P. Dora Jetta saw him and taught him that a believer through his character may attain the level of the person who fasts during the day and pray throughout the night. Can you imagine my brothers and sisters in slam through your perfect manner you may attain that beautiful reward of praying throughout all the night and fasting throughout the day. And these are very, very special acts of worship in the sight of

00:03:32--> 00:04:10

Allah my brothers and sisters, please remember that but if you can't for any reason, stand up all night like the great companions if you can fast regularly like how they used to do then at least perfect your manners to reach to that level. Not only that my brothers and sisters in Islam remember very well that even if your acts of our data were to be perfect martial lottomatica law but your manners were unpleasant all your good deeds can be rejected by a loss paladar a group of people came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informing him of a lady who is known for her prayers. She used to perform too much prayers, too much charity and fasting, but she harm her neighbors with her

00:04:10--> 00:04:52

tongue. The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said La Jolla raffia here in now there is no goodness in such a lady. She is in hellfire. That's what the prophet SAW said about a person who used to pray too much a person who is too fast a lot and give a lot of charities yet because of her ill manner. She was distant to Hellfire while I had the villa May Allah Subhana Allah protect us all. So perfecting our manners in these spiritual crisis that we are living in is so essential for us my brothers and sisters sort of weekend in sha Allah, Allah get closer and closer, righteous company of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and his company and the best gift of all my brothers and

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

sisters in slap that beautiful gift that will give us hope and make us live peacefully within ourselves. Not torturing ourselves because

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

have our level of high data and that is there is nothing heavier on the scale of good deeds than good manners Can you imagine perfected do your very best. This is the thing that we can develop although I bet it can be also developed. But if you find it hard and you've been trying for many, many years is nothing easier than developing good manners. A smile on your face is a charity is an act of charity. A good word is an act of charity, removing harmful objects from the path of people is also an act of charity. You see, there is nothing easier than perfecting your manners when either becomes a bit hard on us when we can't compete which which is a reality we will never be able to

00:05:40--> 00:06:22

compete with them. When that becomes very hard. The only exit for our misery my brothers and sisters in slam is perfecting our manners and character. This is what the prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said if you want to get closer to him, and to his righteous company, perfect your manners, the prophets Allah lobbyism said krobo Kumi Neiman's listen Yamaha piano, aha cinecon Allah, the closest to me on the Day of Judgment are those with the best character and manners. So I believe my brothers and sisters in Islam with all honesty, that we have no other ways, but to perfect our manners if we wish to be closer and to enjoy the company of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and his

00:06:22--> 00:07:02

companions and I want you to remember one very important point and that is perfecting our manners today is so much valuable in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala than any other time because morality today has become a very rare product. It's very difficult for people to divert their gaze from that which is haram. It's very difficult not to witness sinful activities in public life has become surrounded by sinful activities. So perfecting our manners today, in our time, has become very very essential for the Muslims the prophets, Allah Allah Selim predicted that a time will come where the reward of one of us will be equal to 50 of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam Can you

00:07:02--> 00:07:40

imagine? And when the companions may Allah be pleased with them enquire? Why is that so? He said, because patients will be like holding on a burning coal. That's that's the description of our time today. So perfecting our manners today might multiply your rewards my brothers and sisters is that so pay attention my brothers and sisters to your clock to your manners, because they might be the gate The only gate for you to be with the prophet SAW Selim and his righteous company and finally my brothers and sisters in Islam why the new double came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asking him for something that would bring him closer to Jenna, and send him farther away from hellfire. The

00:07:40--> 00:08:20

Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned two things aqui Allah wa hostal Hello, the fear of Allah subhanaw taala the fear of falling into sinful activities, always being conscious of Allah subhanaw taala that he's around you that he's observing you that he's over watching you and postnl Hello, great manners. These are the two things that will bring us closer to begin when we realize that we are not as great as the companies and as a result we will never be able to compete with them when it comes to AI by that then at least we have an exit from this misery that will grant us peaceful life in this dunya and in sha Allah to Allah a great tremendous reward on the day of judgment as salaam

00:08:20--> 00:08:21
