to hand and Kathy Juran. Ruben Lahu subhana wa tada to Abu Dhabi. Paula Illa Illa hora mean to mA Salatu was salam, O Allah ashrafi MBR even more serene Nabina Muhammad in WA and he was supposed to be adamant about about the law. All praise do to align His praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his family, his companions and his followers until the day of judgment, I bear witness that allows the only one worthy of worship and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his last and final messenger, my dear brothers and sisters, one of the qualities that if you notice we put in the wall in the middle, when you come into the mustard, since

00:00:58--> 00:01:49

we talked about this is the use of engagement. One of the most important quality in order for us to engage with each others and others in a positive manner, is to have a quality of a tava, which it means humbleness or humility. This is an this is not just a quality, it is one of the most important character traits that can any Muslim possess. It is that description of the people of gender in now super too early gender equality man. It is one of the sign of true faith, to be a person of humility, to be a humble person. It is one of the most clear character traits that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam possessed, he was the master of Animoto Allah in, can I say you do

00:01:49--> 00:02:35

tomato all the you know some of the louder you send them. Here's an example. And this area beyond sometimes your imaginations whenever you look at the Hadith that describe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam how humble person he used to be salatu salam, you will be amazed. Because humbleness and humility is not just words. It's not something that appear in your actions or your talk it to start from a within sight from it within your heart, and then appear in your actions and the way you deal with others. It is before anything it comes because of the sense of sincerity that you have. Because you're always remember, you humble yourself down and you are down to earth. Because at the

00:02:35--> 00:03:24

end of the day, and to abdulah you are a slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala humbleness and humility. Who an evil kibra it's the opposite of arrogance. That's why when the scholars tried to define what is humbleness, what it means to be humble, what it means to be a person of humility what that means. And I said look at the opposite we look the hat to tibial Hsiao. Sometimes we look the opposite you can define the matter at hand. The opposite of humbleness and kibra arrogance. And in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam defined arrogance very well and say Muslim, and then nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon an kimbro Baba would help people humbleness. arrogance is to reject the truth

00:03:24--> 00:04:08

and to look down upon others. That's how the process of sanlam defined arrogance. That's why a tava humbleness or humility it is to accept the truth from whoever bring it to you from wherever presented to you. And the ultimate truth that you should accept. It's the truth comes to you from Allah subhana wa tada when you read or you hear what Allah said in his book, or what Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam delivered to us, the humble person, the first sign of humility and humbleness that you accept with the loss of panel data set and told you and a sign of arrogance that you start rejecting and questioning and basically raising doubts on what Allah subhana wa tada have

00:04:08--> 00:04:34

told you to do, or inform you about, or what pres prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa, it was sudden them. That's why we didn't fully live near one of the great scholars was asked now what tilava What does humanity on your Baro need help when God would be abandoning, that when you hear the truth that you submit to it with your heart before this shows in your actions,

00:04:35--> 00:04:49

my brothers and sisters and also is to not to look down upon people not to think that you are better than them or higher than them or in a sense that that shows a kind of disrespect to others.

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Hadith and Pudsey with the prophets of Salaam told us in Elia in Aliza is that he will keep

00:05:01--> 00:05:35

He from a NASA and he FEMA, Dr. Rima Mohamad reported in his Muslim that Allah subhanho wa Taala said that might an exalted witness, it didn't belong they belong to me. Whoever challenged me in these areas, I will truly punish him. Also an abuse will allow to send them in now Helena kulu durian jawaban mata Kabir alma stackability, while real Jawa Yeah.

Rahim Allah Nabi saw Sallam described one of the character traits of the people of of Hellfire, that they are arrogant and loud. You know, sometimes you see those people in your life they just saw arrogance and they always loud and they just you know, take whatever doesn't belong to them and many times just because because they are loud they know how to talk tough to people bullying people. That's that's the people of Hellfire and Nabi sallallahu Sallam said as for those who weak and been abused, many of them belong to the people of paradise. Here it is not to praise the quality of being weak or basically criticize the quality of being loud. Now just a description of how they look like

00:06:27--> 00:06:37

in this life. Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah taco sauce till cut down on una Gerardo honey Latina II do not

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

feel only wanna

00:06:42--> 00:06:44

la Yuri to

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

feel only wanna facade

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

Kiba Tony thing

00:06:52--> 00:07:43

that Allah Subhana Allah said the home of the Hereafter, we assigned to those who do not desire exalted pneus upon the earth or corruption, and the best outcome is for the righteous. policyholders focus Cemetery in a nasty Battle of snuff. Sheva, Sam potamia Rahim Allah said that this verse divided the humanity to four categories, personally do not allow one fill out of the sada The first category, which is basics implicitly, was mentioned in the verse, the one who wants to spread who want basically desire exhaustiveness and spread corruption on earth. And he gives an example like so many kings and rulers and and business owners and people who have you know, power like media, you

00:07:43--> 00:08:30

want to be famous, they want to be over people, and they want to have power over others. And at the same time, they like to see corruption spread around the earth. And the second category and Medina you do in a facade until are below those who want corruption and earth to happen. Even if it doesn't resolve that he became famous and powerful, like he said, like thieves and criminals who spread corruption and earth even though they don't want to be famous and known and you know, to have power over others kind of authentic. And Medina Yuri do not do one fill out what are you doing a facade and fill out? cabal, the aladeen about the island and the DNS, Luna Bhima in a minute in a hurry. He

00:08:30--> 00:09:07

said in a third category of people who want to be exalted in the studio, to power power over people they love that they love that power over others, and being famous and powerful people, even though not necessarily the one corruption in earth. And he said and this can be found in so many religious people, shapes and colors and people have knowledge that they want and desire to be famous, powerful, and have power over others, but in not necessarily that they want to see corruption and Earth. As for the fourth category humulene allow you to do not Alou and fill out the rassada for whom

00:09:09--> 00:09:49

he said the third the fourth category, the one who not seeking or desiring any exhaustiveness in this dunya nor to spread corruptions, there are the people of Paradise, though ask the people who mentioned the end of the verse well are people tuning in and the best outcome is for the righteous? Yeah, you have Medina Avenue mejor de Ming, Command D for Sofia, Allahu Omen you Hippo a boon as in Latin, meaning inserting Allah caffrey Allah Subhana Allah to Allah such that if you leave your religion, he will bring another group of people to replace you. And he described them with something very unique Seaforth into Allah. Allah

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

was the first one

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

that he mentioned one quality of the relationship with Allah the creator which is the the love of Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

Allah loves them in return. And when it comes to human beings, that they are basically humble as in love, filled with humility towards others. So since Allah Subhana Allah choose from all the qualities that the believer should possess when it comes to his relationship with Allah, one of them that shows you that this one is very important, which is the issue of loving Allah because that's one of the most important thing to have in your heart towards Allah. And when it came to the relationship with others, he choose this quality which is you filled with humility, when you deal with others when you deal with other fellow people or humans.

00:10:40--> 00:10:51

Carlos Allah Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam manaka sub sada to me man. masa de La Hoya abdon bf when in LA is a matter of I don't

00:11:00--> 00:11:01

the mediteranean abuse of

00:11:03--> 00:11:27

unsafe Muslim the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said anytime with your charity will never decrease your wealth. Then he said, Any time you forgive Allah Subhana Allah to Allah raise your honor. And any time that you became humble, or you how you practice humility with others, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will elevate you.

00:11:28--> 00:11:36

So NEMA said, Why a lot combined between these three, giving sort of a charity for giving and being humble,

00:11:37--> 00:11:58

and MSM because ignorant people, there's one common factor between these three, which is all people on the lookout it from outside the thing that these three cause you to lose something causes you to lose money when you give syrup, cause you to lose respect when you became humble, cause you to lose.

00:11:59--> 00:12:03

Basically people don't care for you anymore if you admit your mistakes.

00:12:04--> 00:12:16

But indeed it doesn't. That individual someone said is the opposite. In the contrary, it will not decrease any these three will actually add more to you. It will not take anything from you.

00:12:18--> 00:13:05

And then the BSL allow you to send them have explained to us the importance of having a good manners and no doubt being a person of humility shows a good character it shows that you're a person possess a good manner and to be yourself Hello Are you it was seldom said in NPR you come as a newcomer the best among you the one who possess the best of manners reported by Buhari or Muslim in Afghanistan in film exam personally took the heaviest things in your skin on the Day of Judgment is good manners reported by a B double personally.

I don't like such people, the people who speak who talk too much nonsense talk. The people who always like to show off the people who are arrogant, they are the one I don't want to come close to lepad Candela confy rasulillah, Hassan, Hassan and Rasulullah. always the best of example, the province of Southern was not example to us just through his words, but through his action sallallahu alayhi wasallam and since humility means accepting the truth, look at the Prophet

00:14:46--> 00:14:52

sallallahu alayhi Salaam when a Jewish person came to him, and he said and that Jews person, he did that.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

Just to test the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. His name is as mentioned in Muslim

00:15:01--> 00:15:35

So you haven't hit ban and others, they have been signer. He said he came to the processor limits a long headed, but anyway he gave the profits or sell them something and he now wants his money back. So he came to the problem and he was so mean to the processor. And the only reason he did this because I want to test if this is a profit or not because one of the quality of the profit must data and he had an endless data Elma one of the quality of the prophets and messengers that we found in our books that came from Musa alayhis salam, the prophets when you press them, you only get the best out of them.

00:15:37--> 00:15:45

When you squeeze them, you don't get that thing out of them. You know, always say if you have an orange and you squeeze orange what you're gonna get

00:15:47--> 00:16:19

some people you might get vinegar, but two orange will only produce orange juice a sweet orange juice. So that's what it does when someone squeeze you should only get the bust should not get the worst. So anyway, he when he did that, I was so angry that he pulled his sword because that means that man was so mean to the province to sell them for his the saber he pulls out his sword out then in the visa sell them said no, put it back. Kinda Hello, Martin. Hello, Mr. Toby? Well, Mr. Tony, because

he has a right he asked him for his money, you should told he should tell him to ask nicely. And you should tell me to give him back his money.

00:16:29--> 00:16:38

He accept the truth. Whenever you saw someone was lining the people on the bottom of and he pushed someone with his stick? He said yeah, it'll sound like you hurt me.

00:16:39--> 00:16:55

And that man, his stomach wasn't covered. So the process of them quickly uncovered his stomach. And he said, Come take the stick. That's a sense of humility, accepting the truth. not been looking down upon it. That's he said, I did something wrong to I deserve.

00:16:56--> 00:17:07

You deserve to take your event. Then he said, No. I just want to hug you and kiss you and come close touch your skin before I go to the battlefield. I don't know if I'm gonna survive or not.

I want my check. This is my chance to drink after you I wouldn't give it tobacco.

00:17:39--> 00:17:49

Then he accepted the truth he gave it to him. When he saw some of them in the beginning of his tower. Allah sent down the verses speaking about Mohammed Salah lo and you send them

00:17:50--> 00:18:29

turning his face away and frowned at the blind. He accepted that and with full humility, he delivered the message. Even it was a criticism of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once he gave a speech standing up in the member like this, and he said to his companion heilala to Clooney and how do you feel Buhari? don't praise me like the way the Christian Praise Jesus. Don't make me God. Don't make me Son of God don't make me like a divine human. Don't do that in them and I am just a servant of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:18:30--> 00:18:43

When a man came and shook the prophets of Solomon, he was so terrified and scared to follow. So yeah, and he his shoulder shaking that interview. So someone said, Come down. You don't need to be scared

But they don't eat beef at that time. Just the eat like the the dry meat, which is the worst quality of meat at that time.

00:19:10--> 00:19:31

still worry I'm just a man like you. That's how sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was when he was asked by Ibrahim Asad how he was in his house katakana a few minutes early. He used to serve his family, take care of his stuff, fix his bed. That's how she said fix his bed.

00:19:32--> 00:19:34

He used to fix his shoes with his own hand.

00:19:35--> 00:19:43

And whenever his third need to be fixed, he will take care of that as well. Can I usually hotel but it will not allow while you sleep.

Study Allahu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he will do like what men usually do at home.

00:19:51--> 00:20:00

Because humble is not outside only. It's inside the house, with your family, with your wife, with your husband, with your children with your parents.

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

With your brothers and your family members, and I said when he used to fat to shake someone's hand, he wouldn't let it go unless the man let it go first.

00:20:10--> 00:20:26

And normalizable but I said I saw the process of them carrying with us, the sand and his stomach, which is he has very fair skinned some of my son was completely covered with dust while he is singing some of the Nasheed and poetry with us.

00:20:27--> 00:20:38

And Nabi sallallahu Sallam told his companion once you know what I used to when I was young, I used to take care of so and so person who fresh sheets in the desert.

00:20:40--> 00:20:49

It didn't say you know, I was born with all this knowledge. He had met it how he was how he started it, not like today people tried to hide their history.

loo Anis he when a servant or a slave, invite him over hubzu Shay. Yeah, and he's something very bad quality of food and he's a slave. He would go and accept that invitation or go to that slaves house and eat with him. But in the BU sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Akan Amina, he had at his Sangha,

00:21:29--> 00:21:56

a sangha and he, Allah Xena, Allah, try to her that it's old sauce, that it is the smell of it is basically changed. And in a piece of Solomon some offer this food for him, he accepted upon us to put the man in a terminal. The process of giving a date fee do do a Seuss for it to your fat tissue on your fridge. My Guru,

00:21:58--> 00:22:09

Sahib. Someone offered him a date. And in that date he noticed there is some no worms. So nobody saw someone start cleaning it. Then he hated it.

00:22:10--> 00:22:20

He would say you know I have to eat the fancy food. Like some people tell them hey, let's go eat somewhere outside. He won't just like a fire first class,

00:22:21--> 00:22:24

restaurant or things of that nature.

00:22:25--> 00:23:13

And maybe you sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam was an amazing person that comes to the sense of humility. And let me just just beside the way he dress very simple, the way his sleeve the thing that this leaves on an Urdu casual hi Do you have any children met boo fi it's basically his bed is basically filled with the loof that you take from the tree very simple type of bed sallallahu wasallam his shoes very simple shoes, some allow to you it will send them and just let me end with this beautiful picture. So you can picture the profits or some of them. Maybe today when you walk out of this hotel, I saw the Allahu anhu said can you sleep in the bottle in a Photoshop tomato,

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

00:23:16--> 00:23:37

one time if you're the person sometimes when he makes will do you know the container where the water is when the person sitting and tried to make a cat will come and will the person will see the cat then he will bring the water closer to the cat. So the cat will drink from the water. And when the cat finished the process a lamp will use that water to make his will.

00:23:38--> 00:23:46

Did I say you know give me a new one. So simple sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah Subhana Allah Allah make us

00:23:47--> 00:23:54

resemble this prophets or Solomon our behavior. sal Allahu Allah you it was syllabub would have asked me to Mustapha La Jolla can bestow

00:24:01--> 00:24:06

and hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala Nabi about the Hobart my brothers and sisters.

00:24:10--> 00:24:13

What are you know, if we want to translate this to

00:24:15--> 00:24:34

actions, points? What do we can do? Okay, we hear about being humble being, you know, have humility, and you basically humbleness something great. Everybody wants to be that way. How can I know if I'm a person filled with humility? What are the signs? What are the things that manifest this type this

00:24:35--> 00:25:00

character traits in our life? Number one, a humble can always ask for help. arrogant people never asked for help. So check yourself. They are quick to forgive others. People who don't have strong sense of humility, very hard for them to forgive others. They are patient don't get frustrated quickly. Why arrogant people get frustrated so quickly.

00:25:01--> 00:25:47

Number four, a humble person is a peacemaker. And I notice that and a person who's arrogant cannot make a peace between himself and others. He always say it's my way or the highway. My way is the only way he couldn't think of me, you know my way on his way, maybe we can come somewhere in the middle. arrogance, people can think that why a humble person knows when to be quiet. You know, talking is not bad. But it's also nice if you notice people humble, they always try to not talk too much. People who are arrogant, they always want to dominate the conversation. And that's a sign that you can look at in yourself. A humble person sees their own weaknesses, and willing to admit it

00:25:47--> 00:26:22

openly or arrogant people cannot see it, and if we knew it, you will never admit it. A humble person happily serves other people. While arrogant people not willing to serve others. A humble person is very thankful to Allah. Why arrogant people not thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala a humble person has tender conscious and quick to repent to Allah subhana wa Tada. Where arrogance, they don't define million excuses for themselves. They just keep going.

00:26:24--> 00:27:08

A humble leader, a true humble leader treats everyone with respect. How arrogant people they don't have respect for others. humble person except advises when somebody advise them given they'll see if they accepted, willing to say sorry, or arrogant people cannot say sorry. You know, humble person, listen to others, not hear others. arrogant people can hear others but there's a big difference between you listening to someone and you hearing someone listening that you intentionally want to know what that person saying, Eric in person, he talked to him while he's in his back in his head. Okay, preparing the refutation to what you say. And some are okay, whatever. You that's the sign of

00:27:08--> 00:27:32

arrogance. You know, arrogance, people always refer the matter to themselves. pill person filled with humility always say Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, that is belong to Allah, Allah is the one who have favor upon us, not me. You know, a person, a humble person tried to cover their deeds and hide their deeds, they have sense of a great deal of sense of

00:27:33--> 00:28:12

sincerity. A humble person wouldn't mind sometimes to wear a clothes, this casual, maybe not the best type of clothes, maybe not to write the best type of cars, maybe not to eat the best, the most fancy? Well, it's okay for them to do that. When someone way less than them, and wealth or maybe social status. I invite them to accept american people they feel this is very hard for them to do. You want to know humble people and arrogance, people look at the time of marriage. When people say you reject someone for nothing, but because they look down upon the race or down upon their background.

00:28:13--> 00:28:49

You know, humbleness appear when you deal with your peers. That's where true humbleness comes. And no sense of arrogance. When you are a person of power. When you are a person of we have a lot of followers were you on the right side that would chose if you're humble or not. And maybe so Solomon he walked into Mecca, with a great victory conquered Mecca, His head was down so solemn, he was not riding a horse like kings. He was riding a camel, like any traveler, and his head down his beard was touching the hump of his camel sort of loudly, who it was and

00:28:52--> 00:28:56

my brother and sisters, being humble, it doesn't mean that you think less of yourself.

00:28:57--> 00:29:10

But truly it means you think less about yourself. Less things about yourself is not to think less of yourself, but it to think less about yourself. You think more about others.

00:29:11--> 00:29:15

Humility is to make right estimate for of oneself.

00:29:16--> 00:29:33

May Allah subhanaw taala to help us to possess the such great quality and help us to practice it in our life, and to gather us with our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a lot of morpholino are Hamnet. What have you know, I know the story of you been I mean,
