Shaykh Faraz: Ibn Rajab on what made Prophet's (peace and blessings upon Him) character great

In this lecture titled " Being a Real Man" ( from the Radical Middle Way website) Shaykh Faraz quotes Ibn Rajab on what made the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon Him) character great. Ibn Rajab listed five matters and said that the Prophet's ( peace and blessings upon Him) character was great because he:
  1. Full filed the rights of others
  2. Avoided harming people
  3. Acted with people with excellence (i.e. positive, cheerful and with full attention yet was firm as and when required)
  4. Responded to good of others with the good or that which was better (while also appreciating the good others did)
  5. Responded to wrong of others with nothing but the good. (Shaykh Faraz said this is the most difficult of the five).
May we gain the desire of learning and implementing the above. Allahumma Ameen.

Salawat on Him ( peace and blesssings upon Him).
