Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala CD mursaleen Sayidina Muhammad wala and he was softly he was sending to Sleeman kathira SNM. Why an equal or what what he of our cattle. This is memes a check here My dear brothers and sisters, or I'll build a wall is a wonderful time. It's a wonderful time because that month was honored to be the time that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came into the world is the time the 12th of rabelo. To be specific is the time that this great gift of mercy came into the world. Allah tala tells us in the Quran, well, more than one there are Cenac, indorama attending al Amin.

00:00:49--> 00:01:36

00:01:36--> 00:01:45

Prophet Muhammad, of course. And we want to examine his life brothers and sisters through a unique prism that, to my knowledge, no one has ever

00:01:46--> 00:02:39

used to examine the CRR or the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. So we're going to have two wonderful, wonderful guests, Dr. Moon Hassan, and Jose, Majid de de la preserve and bless both of them. And two of our professors from zaytuna College, Dr. Ali uthai. And Dr. Abdullah Ali, talking about these four virtues. So we start with wisdom, by the grace of Allah because our prophets, Allah sallam, he was wise. And he shared his wisdom with us, and therefore were described as wise people. And that will be followed by temperance or restraint. Because one of the fountainhead of wisdom one of the things that displays wisdom is

00:02:39--> 00:03:28

the ability to restrain oneself, the ability to be temperate in one's behavior, and one's engagement with others, as one goes and makes his or her way through the world. And then courage, because our Prophet sallallahu wasallam, at that critical stage, when the Muslim community was transitioning from a community of persecuted believers, a mecca to a community that now had to defend itself and to establish itself in the world. in Medina, great courage was required, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, as described, can Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, S, Jan nursey, that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was the most courageous of people. And then finally, once that polity that

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

political

00:03:31--> 00:04:25

entity was established, requires justice, justice to maintain equilibrium in the society, a society and justice embodies balance, many times represented by two balanced plates of a scale, justice requires sometimes firmness. And all of those qualities and more are those two qualities rather and more will the stapes displayed by the prophet sallallahu Sallam during that final time. So brothers and sister, I can guarantee you, you've never heard the Syrah the zero approach this way. And you've never heard or witnessed it approached this way through this framework, by this very, very talented array of scholars, teachers, and great embodiments of prophetic character in their own right.
