00:00:00--> 00:00:00

trade,

00:00:02--> 00:00:02

which

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

follows,

00:00:07--> 00:00:30

to follow in his footsteps and in Charlotte tried to help us elevate ourselves because the profits of those that have had an elevated rank, as we already know, he was the best of mankind. But everything that he did was always there a lesson for us to try and learn from and to inculcate into our lives as well. So as always, we'll be joined by a chef in the spirit of extinguishing from across the world. Today, we're joined by chef,

00:00:31--> 00:00:49

deliver him all the way from Perth, Australia believe it's upon Allah very, very far very international humbler. And we're going to be looking at another aspect of the promise of life. And I think it's going to be quite an intriguing one, because every time we've discussed the partners, life has always been in his moments in, in

00:00:51--> 00:00:52

all you it's kind of, like

00:00:54--> 00:00:58

non challenging situations, today, we're actually going to be looking at profits,

00:00:59--> 00:01:03

in the most challenging of situations, so without further ado, I

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

want

00:01:10--> 00:01:12

to do that in order to be with you.

00:01:14--> 00:01:18

for joining us, as always, we really appreciate the time, especially a

00:01:19--> 00:01:27

big time difference between ourselves and yourself, as all. So you're taking the time to try and marry up with our timing as well. So just for that, as well.

00:01:28--> 00:01:49

We were discussing the problems we've been looking at the different ways that his characteristics and always shine and be a light to us in the world. But we haven't yet touched upon how to the profits and allowance and then respond in times of true adversity in times of difficulty and in terms of a challenge to himself. So inshallah we'll do with Dr. Peter.

00:01:52--> 00:02:34

Come to the level so that was a demo and also the last a lot of us were bad. The prophets, a lot of it was send them with a unique human being. And I think those are two really important complimentary words. The first of them, of course, is the concept of being a human being in them and the prophets I send them regularly would say I'm just a human being. It's actually one of the most beautiful Hadith. In Bukhari, where the prophets lie Selim leads the Sahaba and prays Salaam to Lhasa five Raka instead of four, and nobody corrects him or makes mention of it. And afterwards you can see that something's you know, different. So he says, What is it they said, O Messenger of Allah has the

00:02:34--> 00:02:56

prayer change to being five instead of four? And he says something a lot he was I didn't know in number and a partial answer commandments, so on I'm a human being, I forget the way you are prone to forget subtle law, how do you assess him, but he is also unique, he's also very special. So the law what he said to me is that the more suffer the chosen one,

00:02:57--> 00:03:00

he is the one who Allah subhanaw taala, not just chose

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

from amongst humanity,

00:03:05--> 00:03:50

but chose from amongst the Select of humanity. So from amongst the Sahaba, the prophets, I send them in his era and time, he was the most pure of heart, but from the hearts of all of the prophets, all of the messengers that preceded him, he was also the best of the best. And that's why we refer to him as a Savior, the master that appealed to me of, of beauty and a lot described in what Allah Allah who can have him, you have reached and an exalted standard of character, meaning one, that others cannot arrive at sallallahu wasallam. Our hope, of course, is just to try to mimic and to use the modality of his life as best as we can. And of the greatest ways that the Prophet is unique. So

00:03:50--> 00:04:12

the law what he was selling, is his ability to resist why already remaining resilient, and still being loving Salalah honey, listen, you know, you and I, we can resist. But sometimes we're not patient within ourself. And even if we resist in our patient, it's very difficult to remain loving of the adversary,

00:04:14--> 00:04:59

loving of the one who has demonstrated in hospitality and hostility and anger towards us, like him, Salalah when he was sending him, so you see that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu, it was sent him was very generous in spirit. And I'll highlight you know, two or three different moments from his life in the Sierra, that I believe, you know, do typify how he was the greatest beauty of humanity not just physically, but also spiritually and emotionally so use of alia Salaam, Prophet use of we know he was so beautiful that Allah says that, you know, people actually sliced open their hands when they were distracted by his breathtaking beauty, but in that very same sorta

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

The use of a law refers to sub buen jemena. So how beautiful is your patience, and the word patience and beauty don't seem to match up unless you understand that the sum of your life when you have demonstrated beauty, it makes you inspiring and illuminant and a source of inspiration in your beautiful conduct towards others. So hi in Chateau de Amman, Lana, she says that use of alia Salaam was given half of beauty as the prophets I seldom said. But our VSI seldom was given all look, beauty, peace and blessings be upon him. Meaning that his patients with the most beautiful, as well as his physical character, his physical conduct, and his attitude Salalah hottie who is similar.

00:05:56--> 00:06:15

Imagine that online, you are the complete package. That's what we're trying to fix. It is the one who has absolutely everything that you could ever want a human being. And indeed, when you talk when you come across this era, and you look through the different moments in the pockets of Logan's life, there are so many moments where if you put yourself in that, in that moment, you know

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

that you would never be able to be

00:06:21--> 00:06:22

elevated,

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

was able to

00:06:25--> 00:06:43

just to give an example. You know, there's this powerful moment, where the Prophet is in Medina Salalah what he was sending him, and he's the Commander of the Faithful. He is the prayer leader. He is the ethics and morality example for everyone.

00:06:44--> 00:06:47

And as he standing on his pulpit,

00:06:48--> 00:07:38

in this lesson measured on the day of Juma giving a sermon and his message, it is a place you know of sanctity, it's one of the places where your prayer is equal to 1000. You know, all of these incredible things. A man who's a non unbeliever at the time, enters into the masjid with all of the Sahaba assembled as the Prophet is giving the Friday sermon. And at that very moment, that man begins to verbally abused the prophets, I send them in their company in his Masjid, in that blessing hour and says, How dare you claim your profit? Give me back my money, you owe me my money that you borrowed, and some handle on the profit used to borrow money at times from people who were not

00:07:38--> 00:08:23

Muslim. And this was one of his ways of showing his ethics, you know, it was also so that he wouldn't inconvenience someone. Could you imagine if the Prophet borrowed a sum of money from you, you would never ask him back and you would say yellow solar laws I take, take whatever you want. So the Prophet used to borrow money from non Muslims from merchants and from businessmen. And this particular person, you know, three months before the debt is due to be paid, he pulls this stunt intentionally. I'm not a real hubbub and muscle, Hava Nagila. And when they saw this, they got up furious. And they reacted almost as if with a moment of anger. And the Prophet said, sit or sit down

00:08:24--> 00:08:49

at committee. And he says to the men continue, say your peace, say whatever you need to say. So that Sahaba they say, because dad's agenda, his ignorance grew, he just went further, and used more words, and what had to add, you had enough settle until everything inside him came out to the point that he had no more air to breathe like he, he just let it all out. That's it.

00:08:50--> 00:09:09

And then the Prophet says, to stand up, almost like Yes, I'm ready to, you know, whatever you asked me to do will be done. And the Prophet says, go with this man, and take them and borrow money from another merchant and pay him back when I owe even though it's before the time of debt.

00:09:10--> 00:09:26

And Armand begins to protest. And the Prophet says, and after you borrowed that money, borrow an equal amount, and give it to him as a gift, on account of our misconduct towards him when he came into our mistake.

00:09:28--> 00:10:00

Rama leaves and this man is chasing him. And he says, Yeah, I'm under a temporary armor. Do you know why I did what I did. And armor says you are the enemy of God, the enemy of His Messenger, you're an evil person. No one would say this to the prophets I send them except a vulgar, disgusting soul. And the man says Lee psychedelic, it's not as you think. But I found in our scripture, every description of prophethood in your interview, so I settled them, except one that I needed to see. And that was

00:10:00--> 00:10:11

that whenever the ignorant Miss spoke about him, his compassion grew to accept them and to counsel them with favor. And

00:10:12--> 00:10:26

so when he asked you to pay me back my money, I said he's not the Messenger of God. But when he told you to give me a gift, a shadow Allah ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, someone like when he was in

00:10:32--> 00:11:00

the situation could have just literally at one moment at the Prophet start stopped just a little bit earlier in his command, then that person wouldn't have accepted Islam. But he went a little bit further. And that little caveat that he added on at the end, so Pinilla was what was was all that was necessary for that person to then become a Muslim. And definitely there are parallels that we should be drawn into our lives in terms of how often do we meet a person who's challenging and respond to them either.

00:11:02--> 00:11:13

When we fall short in our responses, what's the best way to say is that where we fall short in our response to them, and so rather than bringing them close to us, then we actually push them further away from them. And it's very important that we learn from these lessons to learn them.

00:11:16--> 00:12:00

It's one of the reasons that Allah subhana wa Taala gave the prophets I send them this incredible self confidence. And one of the tragedies for our oma is that the prophets I send them was the amount of self confidence but in our time, we have a crisis in our self identity and self confidence. And Muslims we're always people we're very proud of who they are and what they do and why they do it and what they believe in why they believe it. So when the prophets on the law it was seldom Allah says to him in a cafe nachliel mustache dezign there Mohammed, don't worry about those who are mocking and ridiculing, and vulgar and abusive and blasphemous. I am the one who is there to

00:12:00--> 00:12:46

establish you nobody else and as a philosophical perspective for you and I as Muslims, we need to come to understand that we between our relationship with Allah subhana wa tada we were never seen ever as the defenders of the prophets, I seldom the defender in them only Allah. Right. Our you know, the protector of the prophets I send them is a law. He's about the one who vowed and the one who will love protects and needs no one else. It's our honor to reflect the message of the prophets I send them in to seek to mimic it. So yes, there are incredible opportunities for us to reach out and touch other people's hearts, the way the prophet SAW Selim didn't, we have time I would love to

00:12:46--> 00:13:34

share another moment in this era of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. That kind of shows the importance of reaching out to the one who we know is an aggressor. But we believe with our generosity of spirit that we can bring them into a better place within us and them. In the day of the prophets, I seldom returning to Mecca. It's referred to as a mecca, the conquest of Mecca and the great manifest victory of returning. There was one of the chiefs of Polish, who in his heart, it was so dark with anger and hostility to the prophets, I send them that he made a vow that he said, I will never let Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:13:36--> 00:13:42

dominate Mecca, and he tipped a small dagger into his

00:13:43--> 00:14:19

into poison and he put it in his sleeve and he said, I'm going to come as close as I can to him. And if I strike him, even if they murder me, even if they kill me, at least I've saved the people of Mecca from this evil men. And as the prophets I send them began to make us to offer on the camera that camera has been prepared, let you know your law has been called the event by belanda has been made. The profit begins to make tawaf and this man whose name is footballer, he begins to follow the prophets. I send them from a distance seeking to come sneakily behind him to strike him.

00:14:20--> 00:14:59

And from a distance of profit stops when you tap it turns and faces him and points him out and says, Matthew had difficulty here next to careful Donna, what's in your heart at this moment for Blanca, what are you planning? And for Darla says Jake to token I've only come to learn this new piety of yours and to learn about this new faith. So the Prophet tabassum smiles and continues to live full Donna says so I came closer to him. I came closer to him and the profits on the law while he was setting them, stops, turns and point to him and says What are you

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

Thinking about now. And he says just nothing but piety. And then he comes closer. He says, Come home to LA I was upon him I'm about to strike. And he said, he suddenly turned and he put his hand on my chest.

00:15:14--> 00:15:55

And he said, what is in your heart If Hold on, and fold Allah says, well, la isla de la Ilaha evil, I swear by the one who there's none to be worshipped by T, that when he put his hand on my chest, I love No men more than him. And previously, I hated no more, and no men more than him. Salalah USM. And the reason for Allah says, This isn't just the blessing hand of the prophets, I sell them. But it's that he understood that the Prophet knew his intent by being informed by Allah, but chose to give him life not death, he could have simply said, the amount of stop this man, he's got a knife, Allah has informed him. But the prophets I send them chose to reach out to touch of heart, chose to

00:15:55--> 00:16:11

give life rather than destruction, chose to give another chance and reformation and let compassion run through another example of the prophets beauty at moments of ugliness, that others may have reacted to differently. Salaam lohani, Watson

00:16:13--> 00:16:24

spinal shift, you know, every time a new innovation, the popular story and how he dealt with situations comes to us, we always learned so much about

00:16:25--> 00:16:49

just how magnificent a human being he truly was, like when we say that he was at elevated rank from all of mankind, do you see that when you study the life of the prophets alongside them, and you come across moments like this, and there are many, many moments, of course, and inshallah, we're going to go for a very quick break for here in London. And when we come back in July, we would love to continue this discourse, I think it's so important not only to

00:16:50--> 00:16:56

learn about the lack of profit or loss, in terms of these positive moments, moments of prosperity, moments of

00:16:57--> 00:17:33

natural kindness and affinity to people, but actually, in those moments, where it's actually really, in our times quite unnatural to show that kind of kindness, or when the Prophet has really demonstrated that kindness in those difficult darker moments. It's really important for us all to learn and hopefully inculcate some form of that, like you said, we can't mimic him, but inshallah we can implicate some form of that in our lives. For those of you who are watching right now, we'd like you to inshallah, join us after this short break, where we will continue picking up with this very, very important discussion in Sharla. Until then, please join us after this break.

00:17:37--> 00:18:08

Earlier, before the break, we were talking to other librium, when they were talking about how, when we're faced moments, where you actually have the upper hand you are in the in the right, you are in the right, and you could act quite aggressively, but within within your limit, and you choose to find a better path, a more compassionate path. It's very hard for most of us to do in that moment, that moment when you're being insulted when you're being

00:18:09--> 00:18:12

misaligned. And if you're being

00:18:14--> 00:18:51

hard done by its partner in many ways, and you know that you actually have the upper hand here that you can inflict justice and swift advice is one indeed, but you choose to find a more compassionate approach instead, and you find a better way of addressing that it's a lot harder for us to do that. And yet, when we look through the lives of others, and also love, there have been so many moments where, over and over again, Ellen was able to be panela, almost with ease, find that compassion within him that love within him to meet this aggressive, the person who was doing their justice, to his oppressor, in the most compassionate ways in the ways that would bring them positive. It's now

00:18:51--> 00:18:57

and she had already outlined some very, very interesting stories about the public. This actually happened

00:18:59--> 00:19:03

in Australia and find out some more and hopefully go over some more stories and

00:19:09--> 00:19:17

I'm delighted to my pleasure, may Allah accept the prayers are for those who have performed their sleep and answered them in existence in all regards.

00:19:31--> 00:19:37

do so because he was being abused, he was being maligned and for the people.

00:19:39--> 00:19:40

He had the opportunity

00:19:41--> 00:19:52

took that opportunity to reach out to people in the best of ways in a compassionate way and with love, and that is a hard thing to do when you're in that moment. And I think we've all been in that moment where

00:19:53--> 00:19:56

you know, your, your personal sense of

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

I have been harmed in this

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

moment

00:20:01--> 00:20:02

that comes through

00:20:03--> 00:20:09

what is actually the better way to do it? From an objective point of view, what would actually lead to a better resolution?

00:20:16--> 00:21:05

Well, you know, the reason of course, is the prophets of Allah who it was send them a lot defines him defines his purpose by saying when that all of a sudden nanika illa rothermel Allah mean, I have sent you as an expression as an extension of My Mercy unto mankind. So the mercy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a reflection of the mercy of Allah azza wa jal to humanity. And if you kind of think of the prophets of Allah, and he was selling them as being the executer, or the fulfiller, the executive agent of a type of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala, it then makes very, very perfect sense. Why, why he's able to attain that exemplary standard of character. Notice

00:21:05--> 00:21:09

as well that the concept of mercy at times is forgotten to us.

00:21:10--> 00:21:59

Many times we don't actually focus what it means to be a llama, what it means to have Rama. Mercy is only relevant when you are empowered to act unmercifully. But you choose to be merciful. It's not when I'm at a place where there's difficulty in my life, the world is all surrounded me. And you know, I can't do anything about it. So I'm just going to be quiet. And I'm just going to take whatever happens. No Mercy is actually when you've ascended, when you've been given power, where you have autonomy and authority and dominance. And then you choose compassion over vengeance, forgiveness over hostility, to be empathetic and kind and loving to those who did not show you the

00:21:59--> 00:22:48

same. And that is how you see that Allah describes the prophets, I send them because if you think of the only name of a law that he describes himself with, that is used unilaterally by a law is a rock man, you know, there's sort of the rock man, all of us martial law on rock man, or an holofil insert, a llama would be and that sort of all of us know it. But what's so beautiful about it is that the only quality and name of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he defines himself with. On its own every other name, an attribute of Allah is in combination. But this one, it encompasses it fulfills all other things. That's all you need to know about me. And therefore it's Bismillah R Rahman,

00:22:48--> 00:23:36

that's the first descriptor of Allah. So when the prophets I send them is sent and Allah says to you, he is an expression of me being a rock man, you need to pay attention to how he lived his life. So Allah says wema, also NACA Illa, rock metal al amin, I've sent you as an extension and mercy of to mankind. And then Allah says, follow his example. Lacan, Canon leconfield rasulillah, who swear to NASA, the best example of your life is the example of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in so doing Allah saying to you, the best way to live your life is to bring harmony, peace, that when you are in power, be soft, Be kind, be compassionate, be forgiving, become, be empathetic,

00:23:36--> 00:24:13

in whatever role you play, whether you're a teacher in a classroom, an employer, with their employees, a mother with her children, her husband, wife, wife, husband, relationship, with your in laws with, you know, with all of these dynamics that we have, show that you follow Mohammed Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam who was sent to be a Rockman mahadasha the example of mercy that leads you to the guidance that you seek from Allah Subhana Allah, and therefore the prophets I sell themselves to us. He reminds us of the golden rule that we have as Muslims.

00:24:15--> 00:24:23

Men law your men lay or humla You're the one who is incapable of showing the roadmap will not be get granted.

00:24:24--> 00:24:59

You know, you don't want to give it when you're in power, you want to hold on to it. You want to dominate, you want to be inflexible, you want to be unkind. You want to be vengeful, you want your pound of flesh, you want to take everything and assume that, you know, I'm going to take exactly what is needed and what I deserve. That's fine, then you will find that Allah will deal with you in that same capacity on the Day of Judgment. And the prophets of Allah. How do you SLM he says it'll humble men feel if you show your mercy amongst those who live with you on this earth, the one beyond the heavens, Allah subhana wa

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

I will show you his mercy.

00:25:02--> 00:25:26

So we learn through this, that how we conduct ourselves is in fact, the very reflection of what we seek in the conduct of a lot towards us. And because the prophets, I seldom understood this, he was the greatest expression of the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada in his character, and in his appeal towards others in society.

00:25:30--> 00:25:31

Of course, it makes sense

00:25:37--> 00:26:18

are of that relationship between creator and creator. And therefore, he wanted so much more to constantly be doing actions that would reflect, of course, a lot of what we want from a lot in return. Whereas I think when we're going about our daily lives, it's a lot harder to do that for various reasons, mostly, because we just don't know a lot enough. And that will never ever quite as our support of him our consciousness of him isn't at that level where the property that I'm selling had, but everything he did, he was always thinking, you know, the father and my relationship, he was thinking of that way as we go along our daily basis on our lives and my relationship with the most,

00:26:19--> 00:27:05

we've created only when you bring a light into that and actually actually more natural to behave in a manner when you're constantly being biracial, with a lamppost rather than my relation to the best of the best. Absolutely. And that's why it becomes really important, dear sister, to consider that a law describes and gives us the tools to become followers of the Prophet sallallahu he was sending him. So Allah identifies two particular traits that if you and I work on in our life as human beings, and even not even as Muslims because we have friends who may be watching right just as a human being, a lot describes that the prophets I send him He warns him of two things. He says when

00:27:05--> 00:27:53

he couldn't have fallen haleyville if you were hard hearted, and sharp tongued quick In response, critical in your response, LEM fogelman, Holic, those who believed in you accepted, you gave victory to you supported you, they would be the first to separate from you. And I want you to consider could you ever imagine somebody who sacrificed like Abu Bakar on your loved one who, who loved the prophets? I send them like every Bucklin earthman and Ileana Norma rhodiola. I know that any of them would depart from the prophets I send them yes, you can imagine it. If he had those two fatal character flaws that many of us forget to work on. What are they? The first full version, your heart

00:27:53--> 00:28:20

is hard. You are inflexible, unwilling to compromise, not wanting to backtrack, my word has been given I can't change it. My mentality is one of stubborn abstention. It's my way or the highway, I the way I understand it, everybody's got to follow it. And that kind of hard heartedness. When you couple it with a quick response and a sharp tongue.

00:28:22--> 00:29:11

Volleyball call, and that your tongue is quick with its poisonous response and criticism. Anybody around you finds a difference, even if they love you, even if you are, you know, a person who shared your wealth and your time and your emotion, even all of the favorites that you've shown before, it's forgotten, in instance, where you showed callousness of part, self centeredness and a sharp Miss of criticism that you are hostile in your response towards others. So those are two practical things that I want you to take as being very human flaws that the prophets I send them transcends as a mercy of Allah, that Allah wants for you and I to work on. So it's not just simply about having

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

consciousness of God, but it's also taking practical steps to being more mindful, being more contemplative of the reasons I do and say the things that I say, is it only for my vested interest? Is it only because this is of

00:29:30--> 00:30:00

greater value to me at the expense of others? What you know, the prophet SAW Selim says, Don't say something today, you apologize for tomorrow. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, if you have nothing good to say, then be quiet for Leo Smith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, it is difficult for a person to gain admission to gender, when they are not men, meaning that they transmit words from one person to another. All of these character flaws comes back to that very

00:30:00--> 00:30:34

Important perception that a person is hard hearted, self centered, focused on themselves and unwilling to be careful with what they say and how they interact in their words and in their attitudes towards others. And the sooner is meant to be holistic. It's not just about the spiritual and connection of a law, it's actually about taking real material decisions to make better efforts in my life in my treatment of others, to demonstrate and reflect the attitude of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:30:37--> 00:31:00

Definitely something that every every single episode, we've had a takeaway lesson, I think this is going to be one of the big takeaway lessons for us all is that actually, you know, yes, increasing the club, but also make sure that you are taking practical steps to address and it doesn't have to necessarily be just the, the sharpness of tongue or the kindness of art, but there could be other things as well. He may be someone who's actually really quite

00:31:01--> 00:31:31

good, etc. But then there could be other things in your, in your character as well. But it's always about taking those practical steps to grow closer to the Council, the opposite of that I've tried to emulate him in whatever capacity limited capacity that we can and also to grow closer to Allah and earn his pleasure as well. So check We've had a few stories from you about your health officers dealt with these moments of diversity where he could have acted exhaustively for vengeance, he could have got the the hoppers to do what they do best. It's upon that demonstrate they're there.

00:31:44--> 00:32:28

Absolutely love the entire life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this year on the biography of the prototype xlm is full full of instances of that. I wanted to retell one that all of us kind of have heard about and know about, where the profits on a lot of money we're sending them. We know in his message that a man had come in and in front of the Sahaba in the middle of the masjid, this Bedouin men this rough man, he begins to urinate, may Allah subhana wa tada as a como la man, Allah honorius and purify us and our houses of worship. Because see the house of worship, the dignity of the person of the prophets, I send them the reputation we have as Muslims. We kind of

00:32:28--> 00:32:58

see them as sacrosanct that these are holy places, holy times, holy persons, are holy books. Okay, well, the prophets I send them he had this man walk into the mystery. Could you imagine a man walks into your magic now in central London Regent's Park, measured or, you know, walked into the middle of the masjid on a day where everybody's gathered, and begins to publicly relieve themselves in front of everyone, including the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:33:00--> 00:33:42

como la la salle habits stood up furious. And the Prophet once again, he says that, leave him, let him finish. Now you got to kind of think about the psychology of that. Because when you do something like that, you're, you know, you're provoking, right? And you don't assume that you're going to be let you know you're doing this act for a reason. So the Prophet, you know, uses that momentum against them and says, okay, let him finish. See how we feel. Being a public display, you want to act like a fool, we're not going to react to it. And that's very important lesson for us as Muslims, because sometimes people see to provoke us for our reaction. So the Prophet said, leave him going,

00:33:42--> 00:34:25

react, just relax. The House of Allah is the house of Allah, we know we can clean it up, whatever said is said whatever is done is done. It's not going to change the fact it's already happened. Okay. So the man is left. And then the prophets I send them says, Go fetch some water, but not to give it to him to clean it, because you, you and I, we have that mentality. You better clean it up. Who do you think you are? How dare you come into our place, and the privatized Selim said, Bring it and clean it, which humbles the Sahaba. It's like it's your honor to serve them as you it's your honor to clean somebody else's mistake. It's your honor to protect somebody else from having done

00:34:25--> 00:35:00

wrong, that you hide their shame. It's Your Honor, that somebody has spoiled something and you brought it back into perfection. And that's the concept of sadhaka. You know, certify is an act of truthfulness between you and Allah, I'm doing it for Allah. Whether my money goes to waste or not, it's for Allah, whether I gave it to somebody worthy of it or not, it's for Allah, right? So it's slip. It's an act of truth. It's truthfulness of my behavior are you really you really want to be generous will prove it, you know, show show your generosity and your spirit. So

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

The Sahaba breathe water. And then they humble themselves in that capacity, cleaning up somebody else's that josas somebody else's filth.

00:35:10--> 00:35:47

And the Prophet calls this man, it takes them to the side, which is another powerful lesson. He doesn't make a public display. He doesn't make public protests. He takes them to the side and he says, Listen, this is the house of Allah, Laos little fee. They're like, what what's happened here in it, you should never return. This is not the right place for what you've just done. fella town, don't ever do this again, meaning I protected you at this moment. And I've let them know that this was a mistake on your part. But don't take this as a sign that I am too weak to respond.

00:35:48--> 00:36:41

I could have ordered for them to carry out whatever I could. But don't do this again. Because then this act is dealt with in other in other manner. So the man he says that when I send him spoke to me in this way, will la isla de la Ilaha by whom there is none worthy of worship, but he he became the most beloved person to my heart, because he showed him that he valued his pride. He valued his honor. He valued him as a person that was beyond the act he had committed. And that's a third important lesson many people who fall down in their life, our greatest injustice to them is that we hold them to the prison of their sin to the prison of their addiction to the prison of that moment

00:36:41--> 00:37:25

to the prison of that darkness. And we don't show them the light, we don't show them the opportunity that lays ahead for them to do greater and bigger and better things in life. So the Prophet chosen a better way leads him to a certain will stop him. And the man is so inspired. He then begins to worship God by saying Allahu medvednica Mohammed agenda, Oh Allah allow me and Mohammed to end your agenda together. When I took him and I had a don't let any of these people with us. You know, it's like, he, you know, even though he I don't want them with us, they were so harsh towards me compared to him. So as you were amused, the prophet was amused He smiled as well so I sent him and he said

00:37:25--> 00:37:42

culpa Yatta was something so vast so so why the mercy of Allah you made so narrow so small, you made yourself judge over others the way you didn't want others to be judged over you. And that's the fourth lesson

00:37:43--> 00:38:30

so that the man reflect and he says okay, along and kidney one Mohammed agenda, oh, Allah allow me Mohammed agenda. And then he was quiet Meaning, if you want to a lot, you can judge that they go to agenda, his he's still aggrieved. But it shows that he's moved towards a merciful state of mind that will continue upon the path of the prophets I seldom that would lead to greater clarity of life, into the future, powerful moment, it's not just simply the Prophet was merciful, but he was an educated Nabhi so I sell him he was one who took every moment to teach something that was a benefit towards others. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us reflection of His mercy his kindness, his

00:38:30--> 00:38:37

generosity of spirit towards other people in that regard, well suddenly level mo was selling was it were vertical lsvt

00:38:42--> 00:38:44

important, such an important lesson.

00:38:51--> 00:38:53

very key crucial lessons to take back

00:38:55--> 00:39:31

about how the Fox was an educator, but I feel like even this session looking at them as a buffet for them and this one particular lens that we've taken as being such an educational journey for all of our viewers, I'm sure would agree and inshallah we'll all be able to try and take this home and really unpack this properly in our in our moment to be quite geared up but actually when we come face to face with a head on situation, this is the moment when we need to look back at this moment, but we watched this episode on our channel What did the chef say about the promise of this element this topic react, and how can we inshallah react as well as in a matter

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

just come on welfare. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the love of our hearts and the color to the path of righteousness that Allah sent him to be in our mind, body and soul And may Allah Subhana Allah allow us to reflect the light he was sent with that, we'd be

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

Come the walking quarter arm as he was a walking program that we typify the best of our humanity through his Suna Salalah. While he was certainly

00:40:12--> 00:40:14
