I bear witness that Allah is the only one
worthy of worship and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam his last and final messenger and I suddenly magical the Allah unsaid. One day I was with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was wearing booragoon No journey, Yun HollyWell hasha hasha l bought, it's today. It's like a type of garment around his neck and on his shoulder long. It's similar to what we call today maybe a long coat or a long rope that people used to wear on the top. And he said it's made of a very rough material, you know, not one of these smooth materials, rough materials. And it's this thick, on while the prophets of salaam walking with me. A Bedouin came from behind. I was walking past and he grabbed the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, and the way he grabbed him he grabbed the two sides of the rope and the garment and he pulled the prophets of Allah salam from that rough materials. And it's almost like you know when you choke someone, but he will pulling the profits or Salam to the extend an assert, I can see already mark on the profits or salams neck
from this rough material. Then he looked at the prophets of Allah, Allah Salam, and he said, Yeah, Mohammed morilee mean madula Give me from the wealth or the money, that it belongs to Allah. It's not your money, it's Allah's man. So give it give me some money. I need help. I'm poor and I need help.
In Nabi SallAllahu, Sallam looked at him. And in that resource, Allah smiled. And he looked at the companion, he said, give him he's a neat
and maybe salatu salam in this incident, he demonstrated a high level of self control. And another level of letting go, and forgiveness and tolerance sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He is indeed the best of manner sal Allahu Allah your audio Salam.
And he basically salatu salam, and thus following the footsteps, and is the same lap in the same manner as up the prophets and messengers before him. But as he was Salallahu Salam, the best of all the prophets, he was the best in all areas. The concept that I want to talk to you about today is the concept of learning how to forgive how to let go. And that's something that is not easy. And it's easy to be said, the word forgiveness and let it go on. And you know, I move on and all these easy, but it is hard, really, when it comes to reality.
When I read the story of use of RAS set up the whole entire chapter of the whole person to talk about the suffering and the plotting against user that at the end of the surah
after all this at the end of the surah they just tell the Brother, forgive us. Just few any few lines before that before this line. Please forgive us before just few lines before that. They were saying Oh, Binyamin is a thief like his brother use.
And it's no remorse. But at one point they said you know what? We wrong and you're right. Forgive us. What did he say? Carla? Three beliau Are you do you ever feel Laguna Kumu who are humble raw he mean? Use have said there is no blood
aim on you today. May Allah forgive you, He is the Most Merciful of the merciful
and he latika
and in Nabi SallAllahu Sallam use the same verse and this phrase, he used it after he conquered McCann, he saw the leader of Croatia after all these years,
all this years, 13 years in Makkah, and now 10 years in Medina
or nine years in Medina,
eight years in Medina, suffering from the plotting and of Quraysh. And the animosity of Quraysh.
rider in the lane almost 20 years, are they 21 years.
And he said, What would you what he told them? What do you think I will do to you? They said you're our cousin, your brother.
Then he said, I will say what use have said to his brothers, let the three Valley Camileo no blame on you today. May Allah forgive you and he's the most the most Merciful of the Merciful.
In Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam demonstrated this in many in many occasions.
You know the story when the prophets of salaam was sleeping and a man sneak
into the camp of the prophets of Salaam, and he picked the prophets of salaam saw it was hanging on a tree. Then he woke up the Prophet SAW Salem like this putting the tip of the sword on the process Salam throat, and he said, Yeah, Muhammad wake up.
Who can protect you from me today? The process of Allah. And he said that the the land starts shaking. And he was shaking so hard and he dropped the sword. The person picked the sword. And he pointed to him and said, Now who can protect you from me?
What the person did, he said, Let it go.
When the Sahaba came to attack him and I said no. Let him go. He forgave him. You know, when he conquered Haber,
a woman put a poison in his food, Salah Salem. And when he took the first bite
that the meat spoke the bone spoke and it was America said Yeah, Rasul Allah in nemus, MUMA. I am poisoned, don't eat me. Then it may be so some spirit whatever he took, but it was filled with sauce. So the person already have basically absorbed some of that poison in his body. That's why two of his companion died.
The product they brought the woman, that Jew woman who given them the food and she cooked for him. She asked what's the part of the sheep that the Prophet Muhammad love the most? They said, Al KTF
which is basically that shoulder.
Then he said to her, why did you do what you did?
Then she said, I was trying to test you to see if you're a prophet or not. Because if you're a true prophet, Allah will tell you, God will save you. And if you're a liar, you deserve to die.
Obviously, if you're like, if this done to you can imagine this done to any president or king or leader? Or do you? Would you Would you believe that what the President did the CDR or so he said, let her go.
He forgave her.
I mean, demonstrating that that's another level.
And if I think about anything that made the prophets of Salaam and everyone who wants to learn how to forgive, there is one point I saw so clear,
concise, consistent and repeated in the stories
that Mohamed Salah Salem and those who want to be like Him, they need to learn that all their actions, what they do and what they don't do.
What they give and what they take, what they say and what they don't say. They will do it for the sake of Allah.
The moment you learn how to live like this, the moment forgiving will be so easy because you don't forgive because of yourself. It is because of Allah.
So no matter what it is, you will be able to let go and to forgive and to move on.

Allah says, Marsh, walk first race to agenda that is bigger than the heavens on Earth to the forgiveness of Allah. That's the motive. Then he said those people who this is the goal, this is the mindset, this is what the do whatever they do for
what is their character traits, one they give in the time of ease and a time of hardship. You might say, Why in the world would you give in a time of hardship, logically, you should hold my money, you should keep it, you should save it. But when you do it for the sake of Allah, your calculation is different.
Never forget, one of the brothers in this community came to me and said in COVID time, he said, I lost most of my employees I'm about to fire to let go or to basically
let go all my stuff. I'm just making God that I can keep them. Because I don't want to close the door for risk for them, provisioned for them. But yeah, I can't. It's hard.
And now the time for me to give my yearly donation
to the mustard, and to some Islamic organization that I get.
I it's hard. But you know what I took from my saving and I gave?
And I don't want to Yes, not maybe as much as he gave before. But I gave I still committed.
Logically you see this no makes no sense. You should save your money. You don't know what's the future. But when you do it for the sake of the sake of Allah, the thing you calculate things in a different way. And 100 Allah bless him with more jobs.
And more money.
In the business and right before he died, he told the Companions whoever I've done anything wrong to forgive me and whoever have done wrong to me is forgiven.
When it came to hustle and bustle we
are full of meaning. forgiving people is the best quality that can be ever exist in a believer.
And today, I know we hear a lot about what's this prophets of salaam dead or said in regards to this. And we never get bored with these stories. But I want to share with you in this hope about examples of the Sahaba of the lawn and the successes and moving on and the history and the life of those saw a role model for us.
