One of the supreme attributes of the 𝐀𝐥𝐦𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐲 𝐀𝐥𝐥𝐚𝐡
is 𝐀𝐥-𝐇𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐦 (𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐅𝐨𝐫𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭). 𝙃𝙞𝙡𝙢 ; defined as 𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙙𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙧 ,requires a tenderness of heart and an impenetrable faith; existing simultaneously. It is a moral compass which allows man to take charge of his own emotions while abstaining from anger and other raw emotions to take charge of his ego/self. This essentially entails 𝙫𝙖𝙣𝙦𝙪𝙞𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙤𝙣𝙚’𝙨 𝙚𝙜𝙤
in order to enter a state of 𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙙𝙛𝙪𝙡𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨 and 𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙛-𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙨𝙘𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨.
The 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐡𝐞𝐭 𝐌𝐮𝐡𝐚𝐦𝐦𝐚𝐝 (𝐒𝐀𝐖) was the perfect example of forbearance. However dire the circumstances might be, he would never be in a haste to respond. At the event of the 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐇𝐮𝐝𝐚𝐢𝐛𝐢𝐲𝐚, the clauses were in the favour of Muslims yet he remained composed while drafting a letter which accepted all the demands posited by the Quraysh. The Quraysh visibly seemed to have triumphed, however every clause that they stood firm upon, eventually turned in favour of the Muslims.
The 𝐩𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫 𝐨𝐟 𝐇𝐢𝐥𝐦 is in its multifaceted manifestations, which gives a person an all-encompassing capacity to partake challenges with a stable mind, not to be consumed by anger or pride whatever the circumstances, to not be impressionable, to always be mindful of the will of God over the will of self and people and to always respond with 𝙝𝙞𝙠𝙢𝙖𝙝(𝐰𝐢𝐬𝐝𝐨𝐦).
𝐋𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐩 or 𝙄𝙢𝙖’𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙝 in traditional Islamic understanding requires hilm as a governing attribute. In modern consciousness, mildness is often mistaken for a feeble, easily overpowered, personality. However, the leader, “𝘼𝙢𝙞𝙧” must be a person who puts the well-being of others over and above himself which entails 𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞, 𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐟𝐚𝐫𝐬𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐞𝐝𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬; in festivity and calamity alike.
