Jummah Reminder: There is no Limit to the Perfection of Akhlaq (character/manner)

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) praises Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasalam) in Surah Al-Qalam (4), by saying: “Indeed, you are of great exalted character.”

Even after praising the incomparable character of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasalam), Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) said to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasalam): “Accept apology from people, command and advise people to that which is good and avoid the ignorant ones.” (Surah Al-A’raf, 199)

In mentioning these three, Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) is commanding Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasalam) to that which he was already implementing, and he was commanded to these three even after his perfect akhlaq was praised (sallallahu alayhi wasalam).

After receiving the command, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasalam) asked Syedina Jibreel (alaih salam) as to what Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) wanted from him, having given him these three commands. Syedina Jibreel (alaih salam) went and asked Allah (subhana wa ta’ala), and Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) told His response to Syedina Jibreel (alaih salam).

Returning to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasalam), Syedina Jibreel (alaih salam) relayed what Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) had told him: Keep in touch with those who have cut their relationship with you; forgive those who have oppressed you, even if they did not apologize to you; and give to those who even said ‘no’ to you.

In conclusion, when we deal with people, we are not dealing with individuals; but rather, we are dealing with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala).

We deal with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) when we deal with our wives and husbands.

We deal with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) when we deal with our brothers and sisters.

We deal with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) when we deal with our colleagues.

We deal with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) when we deal with our neighbors.

We deal with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) when we deal with our teachers and with everyone in this dunya!

May Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) bless us with the best of akhlaq, for indeed, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasalam) said the closest to him on Yaum ul-Qiyamah are those with the best ofakhlaq.
