Shaykh Yasir Qadhi delivers a beautiful lecture on one of the most persistent topics in Islam that needs to be given prime importance and that is the topic of Husnu Akhlaq or good manners.
What do u mean by Akhlaq? There are three categories in this regard:
- Akhlaq that is shown towards Allah
- Akhlaq that is shown towards others
- Akhlaq that is shown towards oneself.
The Shaykh summarises the 7 simple blessings of Akhlaq in the light of the Qur’an and the Sunnah. They are as follows:
- Comprehensive advice on perfection of good manners always, for instance,do not get angry.
- The advice given to Muadh Ibn Jabal on maintaining Taqwa and having the best manners side by side.
- No blessing is better than good manners. Good manners and long silence should always be advocate for a successful life.
- Having good manners is a sign of Iman.
- Allah loves those with good Akhlaq and there can be no better substitute for this love.
- Akhlaq is the weightiest thing in the Meezan after Iman (Taqwa).
- In a Hadith, the Prophet ﷺ has promised the person who shows impeccable akhlaq, the most proximity to him on the Day of Judgement.
The main audience of the akhlaq is always one’s own family and hence it is binding upon us to show the most excellent example of Akhlaq amongst your loved ones.

unless otherwise with the other describe the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Koran by saying,
it is an oath by the 10th and that which is right.
Imagine, you are not from the grace of your words a madman

I know the surety, you are 100 very noble,
you have a very great characteristics and manage some of the ways that a lot
of the characteristics that we mentioned with regard to the purpose of the law
is the purpose of the practice good manage the practice,
the practice, and characters.
And this is a topic that many Muslims have them they know that it is good to have good, it is important to have good manners, yet, unfortunately few of them
put this into practice.
And if you ever don't know the evidences and know the importance and the status of good luck and
therefore, when we turn to the Quran and Sunnah, with this golden mighty extract from the Quran, to extract from the sooner
we find out
not just in one not just in dozens and dozens of verses.
So, in order to summarize the importance of love, in order to mention the most important factors, I have summarized today in the short lecture are now points which I mentioned by the forum is sooner which show why are so important, why are so important characteristics are so important in the Muslims. And this is like a precursor. This is an introductory topic, which will not actually deal with us not to raise interest insensitive, it will raise
the reason why we should study class participation, the importance of some of the importance of having allowed the importance of
these characteristics and
actually understand the purpose of the purpose.
If we don't know the importance, what will give us the incentive to act upon these good.
So, like I said, I've compiled eight or nine points.
And I'm sure that there are more than these but just as a summary and a reminder for myself and my fellow Muslim brothers. The first place we showed you the importance of
this, we found that comprehensive advice that Allah subhana wa Jalla gives to mankind and the practice of law who gave to us as well. And this exemption in many, many verses and many of the practice of law as well. For example,
when we took the covenant somebody started last
So there's a Providence that
shows it must be a very important topic. What is it consisting of number one worship

Or with your parents

People, you must be good to them show good luck to them. This is a covenant that a lot
of worship of our love and show
our love was lovable.

your permanent neighbor enjoy driving generally is the one that is your temporary neighborhood when you're traveling and using temporary neighbors,
so confident that I'm not
alone, and have good luck to the rest of mankind, basically this will happen.
Which shows you the importance of systems, the cognitive of luck consists of being good. And being good to the rest of mankind, whoever they might be, even your slave, likewise allows us to just scratch the surface of

this was the contract and the rest of the government.
Because as you know, anger is one of the routes which causes evil in the society. When we get angry at other people who say things that we don't need other people, when people are offended people are
doing irrational things.
Likewise, the process of

So the purpose of

it shows you that a clap is a very important characteristic of the Muslims. And when he said that if one person curses you
he should point out
For you, which you feel you don't have, you can do not.
And do not point out
that he does.
So suddenly something bad about you, is putting you down. And he should start saying first that you don't have the proper senses you feel you don't have what should be respected in

Because if you do so

because it's human nature. And everyone knows when a person gets angry at you, and you respond with patience, and he

And he will come and seek your forgiveness. But if he doesn't, if you respond back to him, and he responds back to

And if you don't,
then it will shatter. But if so, this is one of the evidences that is very important that we always mentioned in the promises and not just at anytime, as comprehensive as the profits, and also the meetups that are left over the
summer, some of the other verses describing the believers,
the emphasis is upon.
The second benefit of the flap, is that the purpose of
blessing a person can be given in this life is good luck.
The first lesson, that anyone can be given more venture,

wherever person goes, he shows his humility. He shows his view of the law by not speaking
backwards, the Prophet syllabub right he was telling themselves that in Macedonia appreciate and praise on the efforts that mankind has not been given anything.
So we find that the second benefit that essentially is a good is the blessing that mankind has been given by Allah Subhana which is
the third benefit, the third sabita of

their worth of worship.
The practice of them said that it is possible that a man

But it is possible here at least for Level
II will fill in any gaps. There's some Japanese brothers right about you, you thought about this, there's some distance between you and another relative or friend friendship. So, when he is like this, he is outgoing, he has a good personality with the Muslims, he is very friendly with them, it is possible that he will reach the level of

So this is the third lesson that

or those who have the best of luck. And then he said what
are those who are back to the right one for
the diversity are those with us to the right. Because if you can show good luck to your wife,
it is very easy to put on good grace out of your house, you meet some Muslims in the masjid for an hour, you go to work for two, three hours and you meet the people that it is easy to put on their shoulder.
But if you have good luck with your wife, if you can be patient, at the source of your wife, if you can overlook those faults, and show the good.
This is a sign of
each we'll dig deep with everything. This is the one that you can show that other shows you'll be able to show good luck to others.
And that is where the profit

Because if you can be good to your wife, and your family and your children,
this is a sign that you can be good to others. And if you're not
practicing, when you need to argue for another sign another face

hypocrisy, but essentially other people you act like this, and in front of your family and children.
So we said that this is one of the signs of any one of the blessings of FEMA, that's a person the more imagine.

Those who are friendly and responsive.
They are very outgoing. And they respond to this type of friendliness. And this is in contrast to many buttons. If you try to become close to them, they will show your coldness for you. I don't know.

The one who lifted with the people, and the patience of the hardware she suffers from them, is better than the one who stood away from the people, and does not mix with them. So
it is a part of human nature is a part of society when you mix with the big picture,
when you mix with the wisdom section.
So the true believers
will mix it with society, and teach it at the harm that you see is better than the ones who put global society. The isolation is the one the only
thing anyone that will come back
to the world doesn't care about the Muslims,
themselves, the one who goes and needs to be patient after he receives.

And of course, it's
before we conclude is important to point out that
what is combined with knowledge,
a person who has good luck, but is not knowledgeable
will reach the perfection, it will reach its height when
a person also learns.
And we teach it to people that progress

And of course, this doesn't mean that if a person is

you have to point out that
and this is very important.
The first of three categories, the first category
primary key is
having good thoughts about a lesson
or always remembering a lesser
person should have
primarily his parents and his children, his or her spouse, brothers or sisters or siblings the cover of extended family and then the Muslims and then his friends and relatives and then any other medical
degrees within here as well. But the second category general is that a person should have
any the rest of the Muslim or from the optimistic, okay, be good to them. Anyhow, good thoughts about them? Okay, avoid lying and cheating and stealing from them
that a person should have with his fellow Muslims. And the third category of
person should have to consult there certainly. Should we even have an
his brother in Islam?
such a degree that he would have every single day and he prayed every single night and he would not even approach his wife, his wife, Janet non precious opportunity. So what am I doing with the video my husband has

your body has,
part of your class with yourself, that you do not strive for that you can do, you make sure you get enough sleep, make sure you eat healthy,
you make sure that you take care of your personal hygiene, which is a fundamental, this is the
this is the person should have with himself. So these three categories of
of love with yourself three categories of love, once we understand the three categories of a flower, we now understand it for the purpose of love rather than in
words, which means exclusivity, which means this is the only reason.
The only reason I have this
is to perfect good manners, good luck. In the library.
I have only been set to perfect
lot of people don't read this.
I thought the purpose of our syllabus
was the most important and the worship of
it. But once you understand the three categories, the category
once you understand this makes sense. Yes, the only reason the purpose
is to perfect a good manager.
And of course, the management,
the most important and important is the person. So once
it becomes clear to you that the only reason the puppet has been set
up to protect matters. And with that we'll conclude by just pointing out the two extremes that exist amongst Muslims in our time, there is a certain category of Muslims and this is in general, those who are not knowledgeable enough practicing done much they make a class
amongst people, the most important. So they say even if I go to my
neighbor, and doing this, as long as I am good to other people, this is the most important.
This is one extreme. And this is very common amongst Christians as well
as rather than good to everyone.
Good to everyone,
then I will be safe. They forget that
if a person does not follow one of the most major cities,
you're not even protecting yourself.
And the other escape, which is also very common in our time, is that as long as I'm left with a lot
of energy, I couldn't care less about anything else.
Everything else will be forgiven as long as
as long as I have believe in 11 from the names and attributes of the law.
I am not guaranteed gender. And I can do whatever I want to do with my other fellow Muslims live backbiting, slander, whatever, it doesn't matter to me. I have the proper APA with

So in response to your questions, and let's turn to our last panel, let us turn to a lesson and good luck for ourselves and for all of the Muslim brothers that are here and inshallah like I said, slowly but surely the change will come to not give up early this
victory does come from a lesson. For those who are patients. We present a lot of kinds of experiences.
How do we
The question is we know that we're supposed to love and hate for the sake of a lot harder we totally disregard manners to the
vocal question. We have to realize that there is various types of love. Like this various types of love. There is a natural love that a person feels for his parents, his children, his wife, spouse, whatever. It is a religious love.
And of course, also categories, the love of God which is the essence of the love for the sake of Allah or the love it because of a love because of the law. You love. The purpose of the love thing because of the physical love. You love the idea of the religious thing and the love for the sake of a lot you love someone because unless
And this is where we have Muslims. So, this type of love cannot be for the longest, it cannot be for some of us mitochondria, some of us might
have a lot of natural,

are allowed to have good weather it is imperative that good luck.
And over multiple Cisco Allah subhana wa tada has not prohibited you from being good to and being just to those who have not tortured you. In other words, if they haven't done evil to you don't do and this is the case of the copper that we are living. We be just to them and we
