00:00:00 --> 00:00:03

Okay, let us get started and shout that out.

00:00:06 --> 00:00:14

Okay, so today we are gonna discuss last time we were discussing in our study of the Quran of Surah Al Baqarah.

00:00:16 --> 00:00:18

What we were studying was

00:00:20 --> 00:00:21


00:00:22 --> 00:00:26

the covenant of Bani Israel,

00:00:27 --> 00:00:34

how their covenant right there, they're packed with a lot what they promised that they will do

00:00:35 --> 00:00:42

is very similar to what we promised we you know, as part of our religion, right worship Allah only be good to parents

00:00:44 --> 00:01:05

to be good relatives and the orphans, needy, to speak good words to people sub superior gives a god. But unfortunately, no matter what later on in life polyfilla min Kumar and tomorrow de Lune, Allah says, but most of you, most of you turned away, right? as I'll show you right here.

00:01:10 --> 00:01:49

Right, like right here, as you see, but with the exception of a few you turned away in a version and paid no heed. So this is, you know, unfortunately, the case with Bani Israel. That's how they acted. They were doing see their attitude towards Islam was that they would act the opposite of what they will claim. They will promise one thing do the other, not all of them. There's a few of them who did not do this on all people were bad. But there was a large number of them that were bad. And they were doing things that were contradictory. This is

00:01:51 --> 00:02:05

you know, the contrary to our theme, remember our theme, the theme of the surah is submission to Allah without compromise. And this attitude, right? Is the attitude that allows a person or a force that

00:02:06 --> 00:02:27

prevents a person excuse me, from submitting to Allah, without it without compromise. This isn't, you know, this is a problem that, okay, so this is who they were now after this, Allah mentions Ibrahim is Allah. Right? The best way to submit to Allah is the way, Rahim Allah His solemn, and

00:02:30 --> 00:02:55

he mentions him next in the surah. Now it's actually quite fitting that today we're going to talk about Ibrahim alayhis salaam, because Ibrahim alayhis salam is the one who, as we will see the rays the foundations of the gamma rays, the foundations of the carrabba. And is he who established the tradition of Hajj

00:02:56 --> 00:03:03

He is the one who established the tradition of the Hajj, he is the one who

00:03:06 --> 00:03:38

all of our religion, all of our practice of Islam, goes back to his way, the way of Ibrahim. Okay, so this was very this, this is a very, very timely that we're today talking about Ibrahim and Islam, he is the showing the best way to submit to Allah, Allah, we started by looking at this ayah, right? When Allah tested Abraham with certain commands, and he fulfilled them, right, he fulfilled all of them. And that that was a very important.

00:03:40 --> 00:03:42

That was a very important

00:03:45 --> 00:04:35

what's a call, excuse me, very important, characteristic of Ibrahim, that he fulfilled the commands of Allah Baba to the fullest. And that is, you know, the best way to submit. Right? It is that when Allah tests us, we fulfill the test that he is testing us by if he is, you know, making if there's some difficulty in life, it's not because love doesn't like us or something is actually because this is a last test to see how strong of a believer we are. And the stronger you are, the more tests you fulfill, the better a person becomes. And the better he were, the son became the top of humanity, right, like, at the very highest level of humanity, because he was tested. And every time he was

00:04:35 --> 00:04:50

tested, he fulfilled the test. And that was like that. He's showing us that's the best way to submit to a lot of panel data. Okay, so that was our introduction to our father Ibrahim alayhis. Salam. Also unless it's about Ibrahim and it's about

00:04:51 --> 00:04:59

the men Abraham unless I was mentioned also mentioned with him is the the house what is the house and beta journey

00:05:00 --> 00:05:01

Beta, what is elbaite?

00:05:03 --> 00:05:03

The How

00:05:09 --> 00:05:23

much? Indeed, right? That carrabba. Very good. So that is the one of the part of the legacy of Ibrahim alayhi salam, we made the house a place of assembly,

00:05:24 --> 00:05:28

a place of assembly, meaning it is a place where people gather

00:05:29 --> 00:05:45

for all humanity will Amnon and a sanctuary, a place where people can feel safe. And we said, make the place where Abraham stood a place of worship. maqam Ibrahim amin maqam Ibrahim Mohamed Rahim is people.

00:05:46 --> 00:05:49

I'll show you a picture of maqam Ibrahim

00:05:54 --> 00:06:20

besides the camera, but yes, so this is a beta ROM right here, right? This is a way to haraam or this is excuse me the carrabba right? And right next to the carrabba right next to it or right next to me more like in front of it is where maqam Ibrahim is you see like it's kind of like in front amongst see if I can get a better shot of this.

00:06:22 --> 00:06:31

Yeah, so this is a good shot see like this one right here. You can see this is the Kaaba and right there in this little golden

00:06:32 --> 00:06:45

you know casing is mccobb Ibrahim and one more comment behind looks like is the following it looks like this, it looks like two footprints okay.

00:06:47 --> 00:06:48

You can see okay.

00:06:54 --> 00:06:55

Okay, how about now

00:07:01 --> 00:07:02

Okay, can you see now

00:07:05 --> 00:07:09

okay. So, what it looks like again maqam Ibrahim is

00:07:11 --> 00:07:49

if you look at it, this is the picture of McCollum, this is how the camera is and right next to it is macabre him very very close to it. And inside of it it it has this these footprints, right these these footprints of Ibrahima this analogy This is a good image that shows where macabre heme is located and what is really in it. Right. This is a good chart. This is the character and this is how far macabre him was or is from it.

00:07:52 --> 00:07:53


00:07:55 --> 00:08:44

the inside of it is this. The what we what we know about Malcolm Ibrahim is this is the pair place where Ibrahim alayhis salam stood up. This is the place where he stood up. What did he do standing up here? Well, when he stood up here, he proclaimed he called people to Hajj. What we find in the books of the sea in the books of history is Ibrahim alayhis. Salam raised the foundations of the garba meaning he the foundations of the garba was set by Allah tala from even before the Kava was made. That place was a sacred place since the beginning of the creation of the earth. But it was a humanist alum was the man who was honored by raising the foundations of the Kava and making it into

00:08:44 --> 00:09:34

the structure that we know of it today. Then, when he finished the last part, I told him that whatever then Vanessa will Hodge tell people to make Hodge announced the Hodge so what did he do? He stood up on this area, this spot, this little rock, and he announced the people, oh people, Allah has made Hajj mandatory for you, for her Jew, so make Hajj. And then what we know is that and this is authentically narrated, this is a you know, sound narration like this is a fact, a loss pantalla since there were so many people around when he was doing this very few people lived in the area. What a lot did is that he sent the souls of the people who are going to be born, not yet born, but

00:09:34 --> 00:09:59

they are going to be born. The souls of those people were sent to reply to the command of Ibrahim or to the invitation of Abraham. And they would say love bake, love them love bake, they responded by that. And that is where the lb comes from, you know that lB byculla mala bake. That is the place where when Ibrahima Sam announced it, that was the response

00:10:00 --> 00:10:04

last pass Allah gave to him. And this shows to us that

00:10:07 --> 00:10:55

sometimes you don't have to worry about how like you worry about yourself. Ibrahim Assad was focused on what he had to do. He focused his focus on making a raising the garba he wasn't worried about who's gonna come here. How are we gonna show up here? It's too hard. There's that the other No, he just focused on his task, the rest he left to Allah, Allah and Allah took care of everything else put in place, the systems, the people that allow this to happen and this is for us. One, you know thing to learn from the amazing sacrifice of Ibrahim alayhis. Salam, that when you are when you are doing something for the sake of Allah, right, and Avila tests you with something and you pass that

00:10:55 --> 00:11:39

test and you do a good job, then Allah will take care of everything else. You don't have to worry about anything. He will figure out you He will take care of things in a way you never imagined. And this is part of the amazing, you know, Grace of Allah spawn Tada. Okay, so what does he do me McCormick, Ibrahima masala make the place where Abraham stood a place of worship. Hmm. This is a beautiful thing to this day. After you make tawaf you pray to the cause. And when you pray to the cause, at the end of the off, you are supposed to prayed facing mahkamah Brahim. So you kind of stand like right here, and you face the carrabba. Right. Of course, if there is a crowd, you can

00:11:39 --> 00:12:11

pray there. But then you move back, you move back and you pray somewhere where there is a spot facing Macumba Brahim and facing the Kaaba. That is how we're supposed to pray. And that is what this means. And this is a commemoration To this day, we commemorate the invitation of Ibrahim, by praying at the place where he made that invitation. How amazing is that? How many 1000s of years have passed, yet, this is the tradition that is established. Go look at also what Allah says, Okay, let's have a volunteer.

00:12:12 --> 00:12:19

I think I think the link expired for the zoom. Is that is that right? Like,

00:12:20 --> 00:12:30

because I think usually people come out a bit more, but I think the link is expired. For an expired like, I mean, obviously you guys are here, but

00:12:32 --> 00:12:33

it seems like

00:12:36 --> 00:12:51

if you register for the meeting, what does it say? No, it doesn't. Okay, hello, Allah. I think maybe it says, use the meeting code. Okay, good. All right. I'll have a fix the link and shall have SR Zeynep. Send an email about it.

00:12:53 --> 00:12:57

Anyway, we'll we'll we'll get to that later. All right. A volunteer. Can I get one person?

00:13:00 --> 00:13:03

Oh, I'll do it. Hmm.

00:13:04 --> 00:13:05

Man, can you read from here?

00:13:07 --> 00:13:49

I love your English English. We command. Oh, we commanded Abraham and Ishmael purify my house for those who walk around it. Those who stay there for devotion. And those who and those who bow down and prostrate themselves. Hmm, amazing. Okay. What is the command that Allah gave to Ibrahim? I need the GABA. purify it like make it clean and purifier ha purify meaning to what? Cleaning the cleaning, right? What is Allah is telling. Who are the people he's telling this to?

00:13:50 --> 00:13:51

Him and

00:13:53 --> 00:14:05

He man is my right. These are the two of the top profits Yes or no? Yes. A lot. *'s the two top profits after they have built the garba to do what?

00:14:07 --> 00:14:13

purifier purified in other words to cleaner clean the budget.

00:14:16 --> 00:14:16

Isn't that?

00:14:17 --> 00:14:59

Yes. That is a task that is not beneath anybody. It's Noble. It's a noble task. We shouldn't think that any something is beneath us. Or something is not we're not like we're too good for it. This is anybody can do it. We're too good for this. That's not if a law tells us to do something for law tells us to do something. It is not beneath us. It is not something that is you know too small or something that is you know, insignificant. No, it is significant. It is important. Ibrahim and his wife will clean it with

00:15:00 --> 00:15:22

We're, we're told to clean the method. Hmm. As part of our faith, we keep ourselves clean. We keep our bodies clean our clothes clean, we keep our surroundings clean. We keep our places of worship clean. Okay, this is part of our religion from the time of Avila. hemara salam. Do you see this? Oh people?

00:15:25 --> 00:15:56

How cool is this? Right? how important it is. You know, what are we told right now in these times? Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands, right? Be very clean. Our religion has been teaching us to be clean. From the time of Rahim from the time of Rahim, gay, we commanded Abraham, Ishmael purify my house. So this is a beautiful thing that Allah know, the commands, he commands them

00:15:57 --> 00:16:05

commanded to build or raise the foundations of the garba

00:16:06 --> 00:16:08

commanded to

00:16:09 --> 00:16:45

call people invite people to Hodge when there is nobody there commanded to purify my house. Okay, look at how what Allah is telling Ibrahim Assam to do. This is the best way to submit whatever is asked of you, you do it? That is what that is what, you know, submission to a loss panda without compromise means. Okay, if I met Sam, last month that shows us another beautiful glimpse of his life. Can I get another volunteer to read this for me?

00:16:47 --> 00:16:50

I'll do it. Now. All right, Jonathan, go ahead.

00:16:51 --> 00:17:17

And when Abraham and Ishmael is my we're laying the foundations of the house. They prayed our Lord accept this from us, for you are all hearing all knowing. Excellent, right? He is an Ibrahim and his wife, what are they doing now? They are raising the foundations of the Kaaba. What does that mean? That means that they are

00:17:19 --> 00:17:23

what is raising the foundation is Can someone helped me out here? It will bring it

00:17:25 --> 00:17:35

building it, building it excellent. Right? building the caliber, the building the carrabba? What are they doing as they're building the cabin?

00:17:39 --> 00:17:42

What is it that they're doing as a bill in the cabin? What is the asset?

00:17:43 --> 00:17:50

They're praying to Allah for him to accept amazing as they are, as they are building

00:17:51 --> 00:18:00

as they are building the Most Holy structure in the world. Hmm. The carrabba

00:18:02 --> 00:18:33

right, look at the humility they are praying that Allah accepts from them. Right? This is what submission to Allah without compromise means you have humbleness. What do you have? Which characteristic do you have? Right, let's go back to the characteristics that we were adding. Okay, humility and humbleness not thinking too highly of yourself. Not thinking that you're too too important

00:18:35 --> 00:18:37

or too good to do something

00:18:39 --> 00:19:12

to not think that you know since you've done something good in the past now everything else like you don't have to do as much good anymore. No humility, as Brian was Sam teaches us is even when he's building the most important building in the world he's still praying to Allah all except all except about a couple min in the seminar live. This shows humility, right? The shows humility, Ibrahim Elisa Lam, also makes a dua for for somebody who does the Ibrahim Islamic draft for

00:19:14 --> 00:19:21

look at this ayah and tell me who is he making the arm for let's have somebody to read read the translation for me. Let's have

00:19:22 --> 00:19:24

our hasn't gone awesome.

00:19:25 --> 00:19:37

Our Lord sent forth to them a messenger of their own to recite your revelations to them to teach them the Scripture and wisdom and purify them. You are the mighty the wise one.

00:19:38 --> 00:19:47

All right, so who is Ibrahim Ali Salaam making dua for in this ayah is

00:19:48 --> 00:19:59

okay, let's let's see. Who is Ibrahim Alayhi Salam making dua for all right? We said we have his Omar very good, right?

00:20:02 --> 00:20:03

What else who,

00:20:04 --> 00:20:05


00:20:07 --> 00:20:10

A messenger of their own.

00:20:13 --> 00:20:16

The Prophet Muhammad Allah, Allah, right?

00:20:17 --> 00:20:29

You see that? In fact, the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, he said in a hadith that I am the response to the Dora or my father Ibrahim.

00:20:30 --> 00:20:32

Hmm. And what was that Dora?

00:20:33 --> 00:20:46

This one right here. This was the door that it was made. And as a response to that Dora, Allah Subhana, Allah sent the prophets of Salaam to be the last prophet for all of mankind.

00:20:48 --> 00:20:58

And the way we know this is about the Prophet summons because he is there's two things here. Number one, he's making this dorm as he's doing what,

00:20:59 --> 00:21:00

as he is

00:21:02 --> 00:21:05

building the character building code, and who's with him?

00:21:06 --> 00:21:13

Who's with him as he's making this door is married and so it's him and is married, isn't it?

00:21:14 --> 00:21:29

Right, it's Marielle and Ibrahim, right? And it's Maria is who in this family tree? He is the ancestor of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salama, isn't it? Right?

00:21:31 --> 00:21:32

So that

00:21:34 --> 00:22:20

is the the era of Ibrahim alayhis salam for the prophets or celeb. So this also shows you how some of the best way to submit to Allah is part of that is to make the art to Allah for everything there are that you will see the answer for now. There are that you will see the answer, probably you won't see the answer for because it's for something in the future after you pass away. Right. Dora is made for everything, and all situations all circumstances. It is a beautiful thing. It is the way we connect ourselves to Allah. And that is the wave of Rahim. Allah says about the wave Ibrahim, who but a foolish man would turn away from the religion of Abraham.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:58

Like which, who the person who turns away from the religion of Ibrahim is a foolish person. We say as Muslims, that our religion Islam is actually the revival of the religion of Ibrahim Ali Salam. Huh. That's what we believe. That's who we are militar Ibrahim, the way of Abraham and this the you know, the hedger Hodge the sacrifice on either outta right Kobani or here, these are all what

00:23:00 --> 00:23:03

these are all practices of who

00:23:05 --> 00:23:09

practices of Ibrahim and Asana, right, he was the one who,

00:23:11 --> 00:23:12

who, you know,

00:23:16 --> 00:23:45

initiated them. He is the one who did them first, and then people mess it up. And then the Prophet is on many, many centuries later came and fixed it and fixed it and made it the way it was when Ibrahima Sam did it. This is our religion. Did you know that? It is supposed to be a return back to the way of Ibrahim following the way of the prophets Allah? Hmm. Okay, so that is, you know, the

00:23:47 --> 00:24:10

last ones are showing us that the best way to submit to Allah is through the example of our father, Ibrahim Ali Salam. Now after this Allah subhanaw taala will talk about who he spoke about. Berisha in. He spoke about Ibrahim, who do you think is next that he speaks about?

00:24:14 --> 00:24:19

Maybe, well, he said moussaka covered but now the topic should be

00:24:20 --> 00:24:21

it moves to us.

00:24:22 --> 00:24:28

moves to us as Muslims right now.

00:24:30 --> 00:24:59

Okay, there are leakages. Jana comb, oma Tomas Otto, and thus we have made you a middle nation. What do you think a middle nation means? Okay. We are our responsibilities are highlighted here, highlighted here starting from Ayah number 140 50. This is the ayah that starts the discussion of who we are a middle nation. I would like you to tell me this what

00:25:00 --> 00:25:06

Does a middle nation mean in your opinion?

00:25:08 --> 00:25:09

What do you all think?

00:25:11 --> 00:25:14

Like the expectations are not too low or too high

00:25:16 --> 00:25:18


00:25:19 --> 00:25:24

are in the middle, huh? Yeah. Not

00:25:25 --> 00:25:30

too low, not too high and like the other one is very good somebody else.

00:25:32 --> 00:25:50

It could be that you are like the middle nation, they were people before you that you should follow and there will be people after you, who will follow you. Okay, very good people, you should follow from before, right?

00:25:52 --> 00:25:57

Let me change this to your answers. I will change it to like a different color so that they stand out Mashallah.

00:26:02 --> 00:26:31

That they're people you should follow from before. Right? And people will follow you afterwards. Right. So that's a good one. It's kind of like we're in the middle of all of this. Okay. Not completely good. Not completely good. Nor evil. Okay. Okay. So that's very nice. kind of similar to this one. Right. expectations. Yes. What else?

00:26:34 --> 00:26:35

Any other thoughts?

00:26:40 --> 00:26:41

A middle nation.

00:26:42 --> 00:26:57

Yes, go ahead. And kind of like a middle ground like, not exactly like the people before but like, not exactly like, the people after either. Excellent. Right. In middle ground.

00:26:58 --> 00:27:10

It was a beautiful answer. He's a really, really awesome answers. Give what we are now told because now from now onwards in the surah, Allah will speak about us

00:27:12 --> 00:27:16

our responsibilities. He spoke about people who made mistakes, who were those

00:27:19 --> 00:27:20

in the surah, before

00:27:22 --> 00:27:33

pinu venosa monies Right, right. Okay, so here's the thing. Okay. A lot spoke about those who made mistakes.

00:27:36 --> 00:27:38

Firstly, it was Adam and SLM. Right?

00:27:39 --> 00:27:41

So no, did you make a mistake?

00:27:43 --> 00:27:47

Yes, he did. Right. Also, he spoke about benissa even

00:27:49 --> 00:27:50


00:27:51 --> 00:27:56

Then Allah spoke about the one who,

00:27:58 --> 00:27:59

who was

00:28:01 --> 00:28:09

asked as close to perfection as possible. Like, humanly possible, huh? Who's that?

00:28:12 --> 00:28:13


00:28:14 --> 00:28:16

That's Ibrahim alayhis. Salam, right.

00:28:19 --> 00:28:32

So we are told we are in the middle. We're not expected to be like bunnies. Who just made mistakes made mistakes. Our middle ground right and middle ground means

00:28:35 --> 00:28:43

we are not expected to be as good as Ibrahim on Islam or the Prophet Mohammed Salah.

00:28:44 --> 00:28:45


00:28:46 --> 00:28:56

we're not expected to be at that level. Okay. But we are also we are also not expected or we're not.

00:28:57 --> 00:29:00

We're not supposed to

00:29:02 --> 00:29:03

just keep

00:29:04 --> 00:29:14

making mistakes without learning from them. Right? We're not supposed to. We're supposed to submit

00:29:16 --> 00:29:18

without compromise.

00:29:20 --> 00:29:32

And we are supposed to make mistakes. Hmm. You have to write we are also not supposed not. You said you wrote. We are supposed to the alternative. Thank you.

00:29:34 --> 00:29:34


00:29:36 --> 00:29:39

Like manisa even right now so no.

00:29:41 --> 00:29:46

So what we're supposed to do is we're supposed to submit without compromise

00:29:48 --> 00:29:50

to Allah like Ibrahim

00:29:52 --> 00:29:57

huh? That was supposed to be submit to Allah without compromise like Ibrahim

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

but not

00:30:01 --> 00:30:44

You know, like, but expect to make mistakes. Like Adam Elisa made one mistake, right? That is our middle ground. We're gonna make mistakes. We have to learn from our mistakes. That mistakes doesn't mean that we're not submitting to a law without compromise. Okay? We're not supposed to we're not we can't be like Ibrahim who was, you know, the top of humanity along with the prophets of Allah. Okay, but at the same time, we are supposed to aspire to be like him. We're supposed to try to be like him. For us when we make a mistake when we make a mistake.

00:30:46 --> 00:30:56

We are supposed to. So number one, make Toba? Make Toba is repentance. And number two, learn from the mistake.

00:30:57 --> 00:31:01

Learn from the mistake so we

00:31:02 --> 00:31:32

don't do it again. You see if the mistake happens again. It's again a mistake. Same thing applies make Toba learn from it. Try not to do it again. Again and happened make Toba learn from the mistake. Try again. Try try again until you learn the lesson. That is the middle ground for us. Okay, the middle ground, you know, unlike bunnies, who would make a mistake and say well, that's how we are.

00:31:33 --> 00:32:10

Hmm. That you cannot ever be like that. It's okay to make mistakes. It's okay to sin. As long as these two things keep happening every single time. The Oba or Allah I'm really sorry, I shouldn't have done that. And I'm going to try my best to not do it again. I'm going to try my best to not make that mistake again. This is the way of this is what we're expected to be. This is the middle ground that we are supposed to be at work at La Liga de la Come on moto was out on the car people.

00:32:12 --> 00:32:13

So no.

00:32:14 --> 00:32:17

One big test that Allah

00:32:18 --> 00:32:31

mesh mentions that the believers went through related to the carrabba is a is the changing of the Qibla Okay, so when the prophets of Salaam used to

00:32:33 --> 00:32:40

when he started praying initially when he first received revelation, he would face baitul masters in our bedroom offices in

00:32:41 --> 00:32:54

Palestine, Palestine in Jerusalem. Okay, that was the first dibbler Why was that the first dibbler because that was the Qibla of many prophets

00:32:56 --> 00:33:01

many prophets and the Prophet son was in the following the footsteps of those prophets before came

00:33:02 --> 00:33:10

then when the profit zone went from Mecca to Medina, let me make like a small diagram here for you. Okay.

00:33:12 --> 00:33:16

Let me make a diagram here for you so you can see all right, so

00:33:17 --> 00:33:19

can you see the whiteboard?

00:33:20 --> 00:33:23

Yes. All right. Here

00:33:25 --> 00:33:30

imagine here on the map is maca.

00:33:33 --> 00:33:37

What's here, maca. This is facing north okay.

00:33:38 --> 00:33:43

You will be people Where's Medina, south or north? What do you think

00:33:45 --> 00:33:47

North? Medina is north. Okay.

00:33:49 --> 00:33:58

I'm making it like a simplified diagram. Okay. Medina is north. Where is Jerusalem? vital map this

00:33:59 --> 00:34:00


00:34:03 --> 00:34:08

Northwest over here. Okay. Right here is

00:34:10 --> 00:34:11

is Jerusalem.

00:34:16 --> 00:34:16


00:34:19 --> 00:34:32

you got it. Okay. So, Jerusalem is called vital not this. The Holy Place the holy house. Hmm. Because it is a sanctified thing. Medina is Almudena.

00:34:34 --> 00:34:39

Almudena literally means the city and when you say the city, whose city is that?

00:34:41 --> 00:34:46

The city of the prophets or something, right? It's literally called the city because it's the city of the prophets. Awesome.

00:34:49 --> 00:34:59

All right. So when the prophet SAW was in Makkah, he would see like the carrabba is like say the Kaaba is in Makkah. Here's the Kaaba

00:35:00 --> 00:35:12

As an example, okay, here's the cap. All right, now the problem is on one or two pre facing baitul mock this can you face the garba? end? Face Michael mock this Can you do that?

00:35:15 --> 00:35:19

he could, he could face him something like this way, right?

00:35:22 --> 00:35:22


00:35:24 --> 00:35:27

this way and when he's facing this way

00:35:29 --> 00:35:30

that's not a very good diagram.

00:35:33 --> 00:35:34

Like he's facing this way maybe.

00:35:35 --> 00:35:39

Right? He could face the Kaaba and face Jerusalem correct.

00:35:41 --> 00:35:51

But then when the prophets of Salaam meant for Mecca to Medina and now they do not this is Kenny do the same thing?

00:35:53 --> 00:36:01

No, no right now and he's praying. He's facing metal not this and his back is turned to the curb. You see the problem?

00:36:03 --> 00:36:10

Now the profits are the new that the Canada is built by who?

00:36:14 --> 00:36:17

And what is our religion? Our religion is a

00:36:19 --> 00:36:27

is a is a way is the is the revival of Ibrahim's religion, the revival of Ibrahim's way. Right.

00:36:28 --> 00:36:52

Yes or no? Like I mean, when I say religion, all like the religion of Islam is Islam. Okay. But it's the revival of his Milla his way. Okay. So prophet some wanted, that we face Makkah, when we pray the Kaaba, because that was the house built by by who

00:36:55 --> 00:37:05

nominates By this time, right? So that is what he wanted to do so solemn now, can the profitsystem just make decisions by himself? Or he has to wait for alleged revelation?

00:37:09 --> 00:37:15

Does he just do whatever he wants? Or does he only do what Allah commands him to do?

00:37:18 --> 00:37:23

He does What a lucky man said to do Okay, so now look at this, right now look at this.

00:37:24 --> 00:37:37

where Allah says aaden Narada Paulo Baba Ji Kofi sama let's have a volunteer. I'll read the Arabic I need a volunteer ready in the English. Let's see somebody who hasn't read yet.

The expanse of space that seems to be over the earth like a gnome.

What is this?

00:39:18 --> 00:39:20

00:39:21 --> 00:39:26

00:40:00 --> 00:40:04

The sky. Yes, very good. Tell me in this ayah What is it referring to?

00:40:06 --> 00:40:08

00:40:09 --> 00:40:11

is looking up to the sky. Why is he looking up to the sky?

00:40:13 --> 00:40:21

in prayer in prayer, but he's looking up good, good answer. He's looking up to see if his prayer is accepted.

00:40:23 --> 00:40:38

How is this prayer accepted? Jabra Sam's coming with the command that changed the tribler face maka. So you look he's he's constantly looking. He's looking again and again waiting for the response of his daughter.

00:40:42 --> 00:40:54

And finally Allah answers by saying Falun Walia naka kybella tanto baja israa. So, we will make you turn in a direction for prayer that will please you

00:40:55 --> 00:40:59

for what liwa jakka Chaparral masjidul haraam,

00:41:00 --> 00:41:05

so turn your face now towards the sacred, the sacred mosque is

well hifu macoun to follow Lu How come shutaura

00:41:16 --> 00:41:25

and wherever you end wherever you may be, turn your faces towards it. Well in the levina Gita by Allah Allah Muna.

00:41:28 --> 00:41:44

Those who are given the book know this to be the truth from their Lord, well Mullah, will be laughing in there I'm alone. God is not unaware of what they do. Beautiful, thank you very much. So now

00:41:45 --> 00:41:47

Now, what happens?

00:41:48 --> 00:41:59

Now the Prophet Sam is told at this point, that you no longer have to pray facing. Vital mark this you pray facing,

00:42:02 --> 00:42:03

facing what

00:42:04 --> 00:42:25

is in the Kaaba. And that is when this change happened. Okay. This is a monumental occasion in our history, a very important occasion in our history. Okay. Why is it so important? Well, it's important for a couple of reasons. Let me highlight that for you. Oops.

00:42:27 --> 00:42:28

Number one,

00:42:30 --> 00:42:34

right, I'm gonna write this for you so that we can the change

00:42:35 --> 00:42:47

of the Qibla. This is a very important, you know, it's a very important aspect of like, the Muslims our responsibilities, right, the change of Qibla.

00:42:48 --> 00:42:50

Firstly, it was

00:42:59 --> 00:43:00

alright, how's it now?

00:43:01 --> 00:43:02

Yes. Okay.

00:43:05 --> 00:43:08

Good. Okay. So, originally,

00:43:09 --> 00:43:11

the prophets of Salaam

00:43:12 --> 00:43:14

used to face

00:43:15 --> 00:43:16


00:43:18 --> 00:43:22

for prayer, right, as the direction

00:43:23 --> 00:43:25

of the prayer

00:43:26 --> 00:43:30

in Makkah, that was no problem, right.

00:43:31 --> 00:43:47

in Medina, that meant he had to turn his back on the garba yes or no. So he selasa lamb prayed a lot. He prayed.

00:43:49 --> 00:43:58

He prayed, it's also loving for Allah to change the direction of prayer.

00:44:00 --> 00:44:00

To what?

00:44:02 --> 00:44:03

To the curb.

00:44:05 --> 00:44:13

Now, the beautiful thing is that you might think this is not a big deal. But here are some important things. Number one, some lessons. The prophet SAW Selim

00:44:15 --> 00:44:20

could not just do whatever he wanted so Salah

00:44:22 --> 00:44:37

it shows you the prophets of Salaam, whenever he would say or do something about Islam. It was actually from Allah subhanaw taala. Right. Because if he wanted to, he could just turn around and start praying this way right? So no,

00:44:38 --> 00:44:39

and people would still follow him right.

00:44:41 --> 00:44:59

But this shows to you that the sooner the the prophets or sometimes statements his actions are not just hit like it's not his own doing is actually from a law. The sooner the the profits

00:45:01 --> 00:45:20

Sometimes actions are also divinely inspired by a law. Hmm. Number two a law says that this is something he did as a way to please the prophets of Salaam

00:45:21 --> 00:45:26

cable Latin turbo has a direction of for prayer that will please you,

00:45:28 --> 00:45:38

huh? This is very important, because this this is the way this is the house that Ibrahim built.

00:45:40 --> 00:45:43

Right and this is more in more,

00:45:45 --> 00:46:05

you know, in sync with who we are as Muslims our identity as Muslims, goes back to our profits as alum who, whose identity goes back to Ibrahim Alessandra, you see. So this is actually more in sync with that. And lastly, Allah says something very interesting. Those who are given the book, or who are these

00:46:09 --> 00:46:10

bunnies that are ill?

00:46:12 --> 00:46:18

Hmm, those who are given the book, ie Bunny, eel.

00:46:19 --> 00:46:34

What about them? They know this to be the truth from their Lord. What Allah is seeing his Bunny, Sir, he knew this was going to happen. This was already in their books. It was already mentioned in previous revelation.

00:46:37 --> 00:46:38


00:46:39 --> 00:46:49

They knew beforehand in previous revelation, that the Qibla of the final prophet will not be Jerusalem, it will be

00:46:50 --> 00:46:51

it'll be what

00:46:52 --> 00:46:53

will be mcca

00:46:54 --> 00:47:14

this was an amazing thing because now it tells you that as Muslims now we are the ones who are the last nation of that, that Allah send revelation to our Qibla is the final kudla our profits are some is the final profit.

00:47:16 --> 00:47:37

The way of the law of the Quran and Sunnah is the final law of all the revealed laws that Allah had revealed before. This is the final one. So this move cemented that it cemented that and that's why it's such an important incident. After this in sort of Robocop, Allah sparkler mentions that,

00:47:38 --> 00:47:56

you know, our responsibilities as Muslims, what are our responsibilities as Muslims, when we are, you know, to really live up to the belief, right, like now, the law says that we are the ones who are the last,

00:47:58 --> 00:48:13

you know, nation with the final revelation, the final profit, the final Tabler all of this is us. Right. So is there now something expected of us?

00:48:15 --> 00:48:27

Do we have? does Allah have expectations? does Allah have expectations from us? Like, do we have to live up to this? Yes or no?

00:48:30 --> 00:49:00

Yes or no people? Yes, there are expectations. There's big expectations of us that a lot. You know, has because we are the last nation, the final revelation. last prophet, the final Qibla. Yeah. What are these expectations? Right? Of course, yes, there is expectations. Number one expectation that Allah has office. Look at what says, huh? All right.

00:49:01 --> 00:49:02

I'm gonna

00:49:04 --> 00:49:12

do this and then we'll stop here. I see a ham is here. hamdulillah or ham? Would you like to read the Arabic And let's have Hanif, can you read the English?

00:49:17 --> 00:49:18


00:49:21 --> 00:49:25

and levena either

00:50:07 --> 00:50:10

flowerbeds, mostly bedroom.

00:50:20 --> 00:50:25

Those who say when afflicted with a calamity, we belong to God, and to Him we shall return

00:50:27 --> 00:50:27

last time

00:50:30 --> 00:50:30

00:50:56 --> 00:51:03

What is a loss expectation? As you read in this passage, he told me in one word,

00:51:06 --> 00:51:07


00:51:08 --> 00:51:31

faith, very good. Patience, patience. That's expectation number one. Patients when what happens good, something good happens, something bad happens. Something bad, something bad happens something bad or disastrous? You know, disastrous means

00:51:32 --> 00:52:01

mostly, mostly, but it's a disaster. Like it's in COVID-19. Yes, that is a disaster as well, right? Something bad or disastrous happens. What is it that we're supposed to be patient? And not just patient like this? You know, you're angry and you're patient? No, no, you say you express your patience in the most beautiful way How? By saying

00:52:02 --> 00:52:05

in alila he were in LA he Roger your own.

00:52:06 --> 00:52:52

Huh? By saying that we are a laws, we will belong we belong to Him, we shall return to him. If he does something good to us. That's part of his plan. There's something back to us. That is part of his plan. That is what it means to be on the right path. It is those who are on the right path. That is a loss expectation. Okay, next week in Sharla, which is going to be our week, like before either, then we'll make take a break for it. We will go through the expectations that Allah has offered us that he lays out in throttle Baqara. For us as the final nation the final oma, the followers of the final prophet. Yeah. This is like you see how it

00:52:54 --> 00:53:16

starts at the beginning with Adam, then those who make mistakes, but it's real. didn't learn from them. Then the highlight Ibrahim in a Salaam and now us finally we're trying to be like Ibrahim. You see, and what are the expectations we have? Well, the next whole job is about that. Okay, Angela.

00:53:18 --> 00:53:21

All right. Hello, everybody. Thank you for coming out in sharp
