“He had two qualities of a leader Allah glorifies in the Qur-aan, when the people will love you & respect you.
It is when Allah (swt) says, “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him, are harsh & stern against the disbelievers & kind & compassionate among one another.”

“It was the Taqwa of Salahudeen that got him the Victory.”

“He loved the Seerah, Ibn Shaddad, the great Scholar, & his best friend said, whenever a Hadith of Rasulullah (saw) would be mentioned he would sit down out of respect, & make everyone else around him sit down also.”

“You know Salahudeen when he started his conquest he faced the same criticism that we see going on today.
i) the Ummah isn’t ready
ii) the enemy is too strong
iii) we need to use Hikmah
iv) we need to have peace talks & strike deals with the enemies
All of these criticisms were thrown at Salahudeen.
By who?
The Scholars of Islam.
Yet Salahudeen didn’t listen to any of them, but he stood firm on Islam, & at the end Salahudeen was correct. While the cowards… they were all wrong.”
