Bismillah he will hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah ala alihi wa sahbihi edge Marina Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu.

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

So continuing with our series here in the month of Ramadan, the stories of the prophets from the Quran.

00:00:20 --> 00:01:13

Today we're going to continue talking about Ibrahim alayhis. Salam. And obviously, we've been talking about Ibrahim alayhi salam for the last couple of nights. And that's understandably so. Ibrahim alayhi salam Wa sallahu. Ibrahima kalila. He is the friend of Allah. And he is known as the fountainhead of prophet hood. Naboo worries Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and the Dawa to be Ibrahim I am the answering of the DUA, the supplication of my forefather Ibrahim. And Allah subhanaw taala tells the Prophet salatu salam and all of us in the Quran, mill letter A we call me Brahim that this religion is the completion and the fulfillment of the legacy of Ibraheem

00:01:13 --> 00:01:14


00:01:15 --> 00:01:38

So understandably so because of the position of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and how central he is, to all the mission, the missions of all the different prophets and messengers of Allah, that Ibrahim Ali salaam plays a very important central role. When we explored the different lessons and the wisdoms that are found in the stories of all the prophets in the Quran.

00:01:39 --> 00:01:46

The theme for tonight, and the lesson that we're going to derive tonight from Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam is faith,

00:01:47 --> 00:02:20

to believe, to have faith to know that Allah subhanaw taala will take care of everything at the end of the day, and that everything is in the hands of Allah, everything is controlled by Allah, and I need to do my job, I need to play my role. I need to do what I was entrusted with, and the responsibility I was given, and I can leave everything else to Allah subhanaw taala I can have total absolute faith and trust in Allah subhanaw taala.

00:02:21 --> 00:02:55

And this particular theme and lesson of the faith of Ibrahim Ali Salam. This is really powerfully captured in a couple of different places, especially when you piece them together. It's really powerful. What we unlock, first and foremost, Allah subhanaw taala tells us in is number 263 Bacara that Allah subhanaw taala engaged Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam in an exercise of seeing that faith and what having faith in Allah looks like and the power and the majesty of Allah subhanaw taala

00:02:56 --> 00:03:35

Allah tells us with Khalid Ibrahim Robbie Ireenie gave it to him moto when Ibrahim alayhi salam said, My Lord, show me what it looks like when you revive the dead by Allah olam to me, Allah subhanaw taala of course knowing but teaching us a lesson through this exchange. Allah said do not believe. He said Bala. Of course I believe my Lord. Well I can live up to my inner kalbi but my heart will find great joy and contentment and satisfaction in seeing Your power and majesty and fold. By that the hoods are about 10 minutes late. Allah said okay, go and take four birds

00:03:36 --> 00:03:57

for sort of a Laker and then basically cut the birds up into pieces. All right, in case somebody's wondering this a scary story has a happy ending. Okay. So cut the birds up into little pieces. So much Allah Allah Coonley Dabolim in Hoonah juice.

00:03:58 --> 00:04:02

Then Ibrahim Ali Salam was surrounded by hills and mountains.

00:04:03 --> 00:04:24

And Allah said go in place the bits into pieces of these birds on the different mountains, mix them up and scattered them about from Madeira Hoonah then call them in the name of Allah by the permission of Allah by the power of Allah called them Bismillah be isn't Allah.

00:04:26 --> 00:04:30

Yeah, Tina Kazarian. And they will come to you quickly,

00:04:31 --> 00:05:00

miraculous, miraculously, unexpectedly, amazingly. And that's exactly what transpired that Ibrahim Ali Salam called them and the narration in the deceit of Imam Al Rahim Allahu Taala illustrates demonstrates it details it out that all the bits and pieces of the birds kind of like flew into the sky and started to sort themselves out and the bodies of the birds started

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

To reform miraculously in front of his eyes, and then Ibrahim Ali Salam had held on to the heads of the birds.

00:05:08 --> 00:05:31

And then the body of each particular bird came towards Ibrahim Ali salaam to retrieve its head, by the command of Allah, by the power of Allah. And Ibrahim Ali salam to just again relish in this moment of witnessing the power of Allah. He put forward the wrong head, the head that did not belong to that particular birds body,

00:05:33 --> 00:05:35

and the body backs away from him.

00:05:36 --> 00:05:50

Then he puts the right head forward, and the bird comes forward, the head joins the body becomes miraculously reformed, brought back to life and then flies away. And in this way, all four of the birds come back to life.

00:05:51 --> 00:06:40

And this was that exercise and witnessing the power of Allah. And there's a very fascinating exchange that is related by Imam Al Bukhari. Rahman Allahu Allah, Allah and Kitab taxied where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, no, no, I have to be Shakyamuni Brahim that we would even like an end seeing this miracle of Allah subhanaw taala more than Ibraheem Alehissalaam there's another narration that is really beautiful. That Abdullah bin ibis, Radi Allahu Taala and Houma, the great companion of the Prophet salallahu Salam in the fountainhead of the knowledge of the deceit of the Quran for the soma. He met with Abdullah bin Ahmed have been us, Radi Allahu Taala anima,

00:06:40 --> 00:07:28

another great knowledgeable devote devoted Companion of the prophets Allah the Sunnah they met one another so even our best said to Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Alas, they were very similar in age, both students of the prophets a lot he said them and teachers of the next generation. So you're seeing we're observing this conversation between two of the giants of their time of this ummah. So I'm delivering Ibis says to Abdullah bin, bin Alas, and you I get infill. Qurani Arja in Duck, which verse of the Quran invokes the most hope, within your heart, hope in the power of Allah, which inspires the most faith in your heart. For God, I'm loving it. He says, the verse of the Quran in

00:07:28 --> 00:08:17

which Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, read about the Alladhina Surah foo. Allah unfussy him, lotta Kana to me Rahmatullah where Allah subhanaw taala says, that, Oh My servants who have sinned, who have wronged against their souls. Let the consumer Rahmatullah never ever lose hope in the Mercy of Allah in Allah yellowfin with the Nova Jamia, Allah can forgive all of the sins of a person in a hula hula hula Rahim. He is all Forgiving and most Merciful, by living our best, even our best response and he says, that's very good luck. kinah Opole. He says, However, my response to that same question would be the verse 260, from Surah Al Baqarah, in which Allah subhanaw taala tells us that

00:08:17 --> 00:08:35

when Ibrahim asked his Lord, I want to witness how you will bring the dead back to life. He said, That verse invokes and inspires the most faith in my heart, because it shows you how nothing is outside of the power of Allah, the Majesty of Allah, the magnificence of God.

00:08:37 --> 00:08:41

And so Ibrahim Ali Hassan has this remarkable exercise.

00:08:42 --> 00:08:54

And this exercise becomes very important. Why? Because down the road in his life also integrative Bacara loves us. Lm Chara Isla de Hajra Ibrahima Fiera Biggie and utter hooligan milk

00:08:55 --> 00:09:00

that Ibrahim Ali Salam when he faces the tyrant of his time, no, I'm rude.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:16

Right? The word Nimrod in the English language it's used as an insult. That's why it's used as an insult. Because that was his name. And he was a fool for who He told the cover. So whenever I'm Allison on faces off against his tyrants,

00:09:17 --> 00:09:20

and he says, I am the Lord I am God.

00:09:21 --> 00:09:48

Ibraheem Alehissalaam Says law absolutely not rub together you He will you meet? My Lord is the one. Allah is the One God is the one who gives life and death. So this fool, he brings one person off the street, just innocent bystander and execute him. And he read called summons another person who was on death row, sentenced to death. And he releases him and he says, Look, I just gave life and death. Foolish man.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

And then Ibrahim alayhi salam says, Yeah, TV Shamcey mineral mushiya TV Hamad Al Maghrib he says My Lord is the one who brings the sun up from the east

00:10:00 --> 00:10:05

Every morning, so you bring it from the West, Cebu heater ludecke.

00:10:06 --> 00:10:15

And he became silenced and dumbfounded. Ibrahim Ali Salam had that faith where he stood up to this tyrant and put him in his place and made him look foolish.

00:10:17 --> 00:11:02

And this faith again manifested in the life of Ibrahim alayhis salam, where when Ibrahim alayhi salam was frustrated with his people, his own father, his people worshipping idols, Mao had to get Timothy Lunati unto the hierarchy form. Why do you worship statues? That makes no sense of a taboo dude, I mean doing Ilahi Mala again Farooq Sheikh Anwar Eurocom Oh, Phil accom. When you match Abu Dhabi Dooney like a fella talking on you worship something that cannot harm you or benefit you in the least bit? How sad? How pathetic is that? What's wrong with you people? Don't you think? Don't you don't you use the intellect that God gave you that that doesn't make any sense. And so if our

00:11:02 --> 00:11:28

Hemmati son decided to teach them a lesson the hard way when they wouldn't listen. When they went out for a festival, Ibrahim Ali some smashed all their idols, and left the big one Illa Kabira la, la la familia here, Jiang when they came back, and they saw this, and they summoned Ibrahim, because they said that young man always talks against our idols. You call it Allah Who Ebrahim and they asked him Did you do this to our gods? But a foolish question.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:40

And Ibrahim Ali Salam says Bill Fowler, who can veto him, surveyed the situation. They're all destroyed. The big guy still standing there. The axe is hanging around his neck. Why don't you ask him?

00:11:41 --> 00:11:51

And then they had no response. They were flabbergasted. dumbfounded. So then they resorted to violence. We need to silence him.

00:11:52 --> 00:12:14

He's made us look foolish. So then they built this huge fire. How did you call who won pseudo Ali had Salman Khan from failing in the support of their false gods. They built this huge fire. Since enormous fire gets out of control the second forest fire, they can't even get near it. And then they said we're going to put it but our human got fire.

00:12:15 --> 00:12:22

And they can't get near enough to put them in the fire. So they construct a catapult. They tie him up and they launch him into the fire.

00:12:23 --> 00:12:24


00:12:25 --> 00:12:35

phase faith. Ibrahim Ali Salam is not concerned in the least spent Allahumma until the lack of Osama what Ana Abdullah

00:12:37 --> 00:12:46

says Oh Allah, You are the Lord, only one worthy of worship in the heavens. And I am your servant on this earth worshipping you helped me

00:12:48 --> 00:12:53

and then they launch him into the air. And as Ibrahim Ali Salam is flying through the air,

00:12:54 --> 00:12:56

and Gibreel adding Salam comes to him

00:12:57 --> 00:13:00

again to teach that lesson that moment.

00:13:01 --> 00:13:17

He says I have permission to be here. I like hahaha Can I do anything for you? And Ibrahim Ali salaam knows the lesson. But he intends to teach us the lesson. And he says a mighty Laker fella. You I don't need anything from you.

00:13:18 --> 00:13:19

I'm not either lucky phenom.

00:13:20 --> 00:13:28

Allah is what I need. And then he spoke those words that are immortalized in the Quran has be Allahu and Yamawaki.

00:13:30 --> 00:13:36

Allah is all I need. Allah is sufficient for me. And he is the best of caretakers.

00:13:37 --> 00:13:44

And then Allah subhanaw taala. Again, gives us a reason to believe inspires faith.

00:13:45 --> 00:13:48

There are so many ways Allah could have saved Ibrahim Aleksa.

00:13:50 --> 00:14:05

The water could have fell from the sky and extinguish the fire. Allah could have sent the wind to carry Ibrahim alayhi salam to safety. Allah could send a giant bird or some create creation to swoop down and pick up Ibrahim and carry him to safety.

00:14:06 --> 00:14:19

But Allah subhanaw taala shows us it is Allah that we believe in. We don't even believe in the fires ability to burn. We believe that it is the command of Allah upon the fire that burns

00:14:20 --> 00:14:29

guna Jana Cooney Berdan wa salam and Allah Ibrahim of fire become cool and safe upon my O'Brien

00:14:31 --> 00:14:45

and I've done up in Minnesota the Allahu Anhu tells us when they brought him ally some lands in the fire. It does not harm a hair on his head. Even the ropes that were tied to his hands and his feet. The ropes burned away.

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

Because they were causing trouble to vine. The ropes burned away without burning a single spot on his hands or feet.

00:14:55 --> 00:14:59

That is the faith of Ibrahim. The belief that Ibrahim

00:15:00 --> 00:15:30

At least man, the conviction that he possessed and that is why Allah tells us his story in the Quran. Why Abdullah bin Abbas Radi Allahu Taala anima says that is the most powerful verse in the whole Quran to me. Why Allah and Allah Aziz and Hakeem, know for a fact that Allah is almighty and Allah is always and always keep your faith and your belief in Allah subhanaw taala. So now what no matter what's going on in our personal lives,

00:15:31 --> 00:15:45

what what is distressing us what is troubling us, no matter what is going on in the world, that is a source of pain and tragedy for the ummah of the prophets, Allah DISA, like the massacre of our brothers and sisters,

00:15:46 --> 00:15:47

and all throughout the world.

00:15:48 --> 00:15:50

We never lose hope.

00:15:51 --> 00:15:54

We always have faith. We always believe

00:15:55 --> 00:15:58

because this is our this is who we believe in

00:15:59 --> 00:16:16

the rub. The Lord that came to Ibrahim's rescue is always there for all of us. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us all the ability to practice everything that we've said and heard Subhanallah he will be humble he Subhana Allah who will be humble Nasha to Allah ilaha illa into the software governance a willing
