Don't forget

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

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was the one who Allah Hamburg. We are doing various good deeds especially during these 10 days of the hedger where we can dish out a load to either come close to a loss of Hannah Horta, Allah. And of course these good these can be done in any days. But just a reminder that especially during these 10 days, one of the easiest good deeds in some ways the easiest one of the easiest, and yet it is so difficult is the good deed of mastering one's Alok ones manners ones are dub with other human beings. And this is a manifestation of a tenderness and a compassion of the heart and a

00:01:06--> 00:01:54

realization of loving for your brother what you love for yourself. This concept of having good luck. It is something that the Quran and Sunnah is full of there are so many dozens of ayat and a hadith about the blessings of having good luck. And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Quran that the real worshipers of a law are those who walk with humility on this earth. And when people want to have fights with them and accost them and insult them, they say Salama, and they move on. So Allah mentions that the true worshipers of a law are humble, compassionate, and forgiving. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told us that good manners are of the most comprehensive blessings

00:01:54--> 00:02:38

that Allah subhana wa tada can give to any person. The prophets of the law. He said him said that people have not been given anything better than good manners, people have not been given anything better than personnel. Hello. And he said in another Hadith, that it could be crystal Holika advise you to have good manners, and also advise you to be silent for long periods of time, for I swear by the one in whose hands is my soul, the creation is not beautified by anything better than this. You want to really beautify yourself, beautify your inner before you beautify your altar. Our Prophet sallallahu Sallam is saying the real beauty is the beauty of manners. And in fact, a lot of people

00:02:38--> 00:03:02

they think that the righteous person is the one whose outward manifestations are supposedly religious. So the one who is always you know, outwardly praying the one who is Yanni Mashallah The sooner beard is there and this and that. So they judge and honestly, that's wrong. Okay, these are all aspects. But what did our prophets have a long while he was self say. He said in the authentic hadith, that

00:03:03--> 00:03:45

a righteous Muslim can achieve the level of the one who fasts continuously, and the level of the one who does the hijab continuously without fasting and doing tahajud simply by having good manners. Now think about that, right? A man who wakes up two hours every single night, a man who fasts every single second day, or three days of the week, or you know, regularly right and you would think Mashallah, this man is so pious, and he is pious. But what if he doesn't have good o'clock? What if he's crude and rude? What if he's obnoxious and mean? Our Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, as long as you're doing your five prayers, as long as you're doing the bare minimum, and you have good luck

00:03:45--> 00:04:26

with the rest of humanity, you can reach the level of that other person who is constantly praying every night that the head dude prayer, and constantly fasting above and beyond the fast serve Ramadan, and indeed, that is something good that he's doing but because he doesn't have a clock, your good rock can match up to and maybe even surpass that person. Imagine how powerful that can be, and how much beloved they are to Allah, that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves the person of good luck, and will grant him the status of the one who doesn't have good o'clock, but the one who is praying 200 at night, every single night of the spring, and the one would go to hell after sleeping the

00:04:26--> 00:05:00

night. But Allah will grant him the status of that person simply by having good luck and that is why it is a sign of a man to have good o'clock our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and this is a very simple Hadith, you'll understand the Arabic a Komodo ultimate meaning of a man and a central home hollowcore a camel camel, a Komodo meal, a man that the believers that have the most perfect EMA so they have the commodity man or those who have the best of all manners. So the

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

profits a little worse. And I'm explicitly linked good manners with the perfection of a man. I cannot be more blunt here. If you don't have good manners, you don't have good manners. This is explicit from the Hadeeth. And if you have good manners, that is definitely an indication not the only one because you can have good manners and your mind is weak, but it is an indication that it is check. See, here's the point. Good manners is an essential part of having good a man. But there are more components as well, right you must also be having some rituals as well. Now, if you don't have good manners, and you have the rituals, you also do not have a man as well. So we have to be very

00:05:42--> 00:06:23

clear here that good manners is one essential component of having strong Eman. But if you do not have good manners, and you have the rituals, you do not have good demand. And if you have good manners, but you don't have any rituals, no salah and Osaka that is a major problem as well. And that is why they have to go hand in hand. So our Prophet sallallahu wasallam explicitly told us that the people of good Eman have good manners. The people with strong demand have strong manners and the people of wiki man they have bad manners and there's no surprise therefore, that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah is beautiful, and he loves beauty, and he loves the best

00:06:23--> 00:07:05

devil clock and he despises the crude and the debased of Allah, Allah loves the best best of luck. Those people that have the best manners, Allah subhanho wa Taala loves them. And those people that have the worst of manners, Allah does not love them. In fact, in one Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that Allah hates the one whose mouth is always vulgar and the one who's always cursing and the one who's always putting people down, that the word used is Allahu you believe Allah hates the one who is far harsher than with official belief. Like always just just nasty people to be around. And may Allah protect us. We all know people like that right? Subhan Allah did wherever you

00:07:05--> 00:07:44

around them is just going to be something bad, something negative, putting somebody down just a vulgarities. You don't want to be around that person. And our Prophet sister said, it's not just to know what he wants to be around that person and Subhanallah it is even possible that a lot of xojo does not like that person is very careful, then we have to be careful about making sure that you know we don't have these types of characteristics. On the day of judgment. Our Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that the heaviest of things on the scales of the day of judgment will be good manners, the heaviest of things. So if all items are placed out there, what will be the heaviest item we need

00:07:44--> 00:08:26

to have solid Oh question we need to have zaccaro question, what is going to be the heaviest it is going to be a lifestyle that exudes compassion and kindness and mercy and genuine good cheer to the people around us to be a person who's smiling and comforting and sympathetic and cheerful cheering other people up giving positive encouragement, treating, you know people instead of treating an evil person, an evil man to treat them in a good manner. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that that is going to be the heaviest patter on the scales of the Day of Judgment. Now, we talked a little bit about the blessings of a HELOC, what is good, what is good manners? Well, in reality, this this is a

00:08:26--> 00:09:09

reality as our scholars say that to define it is problematic because everybody knows what it is that which is known does not need to be defined as another saying right, that that which is well known, should not and cannot be defined. Everybody knows what good manners are good manners is to show happiness and contentment and cheerfulness and to be helpful to others and to control one's own anger, right. So to treat others better than what you would want to be treated and to take from them right, whatever they're doing with the best of manners as well. And so you can short you can get shortchanged by other people, but you should not shortchange other people, okay? So good manners is

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

that you give more than what it is do and that you're willing to receive less than your do. And to be of someone who has a genuine compassion and a kind heart and Allah subhana wa tada also explicitly says humility, how now he mentioned in the Quran, that those that are believers that they have a sense of humility and modesty, you cannot have good manners if you have a sense of arrogance. Now, before we finish today's talk, we should very quickly point out that our scholars say that there are three types of manners. The first is manners with Allah subhana wa Tada. The second is manners with the creation of a law and the third is manners with one's own self. And each one has

00:09:49--> 00:10:00

long topic in of itself matters with a lot means you think the best thoughts about a law you're remembering a lot during thicket of Allah subhanaw taala you're conscious of the limits of Allah manners with other people is what we have been

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

Talking about manners with yourself is that you yourself in your own personal lifestyle, you should be in giving managed to yourself as well treating your body with dignity. For example, giving the body is do right do not abuse you know, things that are going to harm your own body. That's what matters with your own body. So these are the three categories of manners. And of course, the talk today was primarily about the issue of manners with the other mahalo hearts of Allah, creation of Allah and the most important group of people that deserve your manners or your immediate family and so inshallah we will talk about that in our next lecture. I will see you then said I want to Lahore

00:10:37--> 00:10:37

barakato.
