#MuftiMenk mentions that it’s important for us to look at Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wassalam as the ideal role model. He is the only creature of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala or human being whom we can look at from every aspect of his life and say he’s a role model in this lecture.
Mufti Menk adds that there is always a turning point in our lives. Allah does not leave a single human being without direct reminders to him or her in his or her life; it’s not possible. So waiting for the #turningpoint in others is part of the sunnah of Muhammad (saw) when we are soft with people, when we are kind to them, and when we are lenient with them it’s a sign of the mercy of Allah upon us. Mufti Menk Quotes “Be patient wait for the turning point in others and as for yourself; ask yourself am I going to live to see the next morning why should I wait to turn myself to Allah. So when it comes to others we are lenient when it comes to ourselves we should not be lenient; turn now be hard on yourself don’t be hard on others.”
