Allah subhanaw taala when he praised Ibrahim Ali Salam

00:06:39--> 00:07:25

and shorty bream status, Ali Salam, pay attention to this verse, pay attention to the greatest characteristic that he mentioned. Allah subhanho wa Taala says about Ibrahim Ali Salam in Ybor in Ibrahim Acana. Uma that Ibrahim was in Omaha he was a nation and himself. God is Anila he Hanifa he was devoted to Allah obedient to Allah inclining towards the truth. Well, let me a communal Mushrikeen he was not from those who join partners with Allah.

00:07:26--> 00:08:10

the province and Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He also taught us this in his sunnah Ali salat wa salam, the importance of being thankful. He used to say when he would wake up in the morning, and when he was in the evening Alia Salatu was Salam. Ala Houma, Mustafa Beeman. NetMeeting Obeah had him in hunger from firming Coca Cola Cherie kellock, Fela Cal hamdulillah sugar. In the morning, the Prophet said, Allahu Allah, he was still him in the morning evenings he would say all the time, Oh Allah, I have not entered this day or this evening with any blessings for me or for anybody of your creation, except for it solely from you. As one not joining the partners with you, so you to you as

00:08:10--> 00:08:38

the hummed in the sugar, the praise and the thing Subhanallah what's either teaching the Muslims the importance of Tawheed of having your heart attached to Allah subhanho wa Taala the importance of being thankful the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Whoever says this in the morning that he has done his thanks for the day. And whoever says in the evening he has done his thanks for the evening. The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam in his actions taught us the importance of being thankful

00:08:40--> 00:09:08

when he was to pray all through the nights and he said it was ceilometer His feet will become swollen and his wife Aisha Radi Allahu Allah, she was surprised. She said, Val had walked out the door for Allah who like them and then they come at a curb. Do you do that? And Allah has forgiven you of all of your past and future sins. What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say to her? He said, If Allah could have done Xu Cora, should I not be a servant who is thankful to Allah?

00:09:12--> 00:09:16

When we look at the types of blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has blessed us with

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

no matter how rich or poor you are,

00:09:20--> 00:09:25

the greatest of all blessings is the blessing of Islam.

00:09:26--> 00:09:37

The blessing to have been guided to follow the way of la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah, to be from the followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is the greatest blessing.

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

If you have that and have nothing else, and you have been victorious in this life, you have been successful in this life. Pay attention to what Allah subhanaw taala says to us in the Quran, when he says Elio McMurdo welcome, Deena. What month to Ali committed Mati. What are the two locum in Islam Medina? He said today I have perfect

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

for you your religion and bestowed upon you my net Map My blessing

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

and chose for you the religion of Islam as your religion.

00:10:11--> 00:10:18

The religion of Islam is a near metal blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala that we need to be thankful for,

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

from the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given us

00:10:24--> 00:10:30

the blessings that none of us have really reflect on be able to see, to understand,

00:10:31--> 00:10:49

to hear to smell Allah subhanaw taala. He said Paul, who will let the antiA come with janela Comosa will have a thought or whatever either kalila Mitesh gewoon said say he is the one who has given you. He is great at you and giving you the hearing

00:10:50--> 00:11:13

and the sights and the hearts to reflect with but little are you thankful none of the people are thankful even though they've been blessed with this. How many people have been blessed with vision but they use it now which is haram and displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala they've been blessed with hearing with the intelligence to reflect and they turn away from Allah subhanho wa Taala listen and do that which is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

from the blessings

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

that we have been blessed with

00:11:20--> 00:11:39

is having that which is sufficient for us and for our families. From the provisions no matter how much it is Alhamdulillah the province has taught us he trained us he said Ma menos Muhammad Amin MP Serbian, more often feature city and the Porta yo me.

00:11:40--> 00:11:48

Hey, is it LA who are dunya that whoever wakes up and he is safe. He's living in safety.

00:11:49--> 00:12:02

And he is doesn't have any afflictions in his body. He's healthy. And he has his coat, His provision to eat with for that day for him and his family. Then it's like he has the dunya and all that's in it.

00:12:05--> 00:12:11

How many billion that's with a B, billions of people live in poverty.

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

How many people don't have

00:12:18--> 00:12:23

how many people are ill? How many millions who have illnesses will be dead next week.

00:12:24--> 00:12:38

And Allah subhanaw taala has blessed us with health. He's blessed us to have enough. Of course all of us who want more as the province as Adam said, if you were to give the children Adam, a valley of gold, he'd want another one.

00:12:39--> 00:12:55

That's human nature. But we need to be thankful. We need to reflect on what we have. Go on YouTube. And look at some of the videos of the people in the poor countries. As they live on the streets. They take any crumbs, anything they can find from the streets and they look at your situation.

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

Look at the boy

00:12:58--> 00:13:05

who is about to get eaten by the bird because he about to die from hunger. And look at your situation.

00:13:06--> 00:13:11

Look at the little boy who was trying to pull his mother because she died of hunger in front of him and look at your situation.

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

We need to be thankful

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

we need to reflect on the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given us

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

and being thankful comes in different forms. A lot of times we look at being thankful in

00:13:30--> 00:13:38

with our time passing hamdulillah and even though that's good it's not enough because we also need to be thankful in our hearts.

00:13:40--> 00:13:45

We need to be thankful in our hearts knowing that this namah this blessing we have is from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:47--> 00:13:53

and that this makes us love Allah subhanho wa Taala more and more that this brings us closer to Allah subhanaw taala

00:13:55--> 00:14:03

we need to be thankful in our actions by only using what Allah has blessed us with and that which is pleasing Him subhanaw taala our Creator

00:14:04--> 00:14:08

doing that what he told us to do and stay away from that once you permit us from subhanho wa Taala

00:14:12--> 00:14:24

BarakAllahu li Walakum through Quran he was sunnah whenever new year will be my female it will hikma awkward only Heather was stopped from LA Hollywood accom for stop through in Hulu.

00:14:46--> 00:14:50

Bismillah capital was Salatu was Salam ala Nabi animal stuff How about

00:14:52--> 00:14:53

my dear brothers in Islam

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

as we have learned the reality

00:15:00--> 00:15:14

and the importance of being thankful and grateful for the blessings that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has bestowed on us. That which is apparent and that which is not apparent. We need to reflect when we go home today

00:15:16--> 00:15:18

and ask ourselves a few questions.

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

Are we really from those

00:15:22--> 00:15:25

who are grateful to Allah Subhana? Wa Tada?

00:15:27--> 00:15:31

Are we honestly from those? Who love Allah? subhanho? wa taala?

00:15:34--> 00:15:34

If so,

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

if you say yes.

00:15:39--> 00:15:48

Or you fool yourself by saying yes. The next question comes in my really thankful in my heart. Oh, my tongue isn't hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah.

00:15:52--> 00:15:57

But if you're thankful in your heart, the next question, are you thankful in your actions?

00:16:00--> 00:16:02

Because the actions are the reality.

00:16:03--> 00:16:09

The actions show us the truth. If you're really grateful to Allah subhanaw taala look at your actions.

00:16:12--> 00:16:17

Do you do what you're supposed to do? Do you do what Allah subhanaw taala commanded you to do? Or do you turn away?

00:16:18--> 00:16:22

Then you have the answer if you're really grateful or not, the money that you gain?

00:16:23--> 00:16:26

Do you gain it from Halal sources or haram sources?

00:16:27--> 00:16:30

And if when you gain that money, how do you spending

00:16:32--> 00:16:50

two of the questions that we're going to be asked on your piano? From the five questions that the Prophet said Allahu Allah He was silly mentioned that every single server will be asked these five questions before his feet even more on the day of judgment. And from these questions where he gained his money and what he spent it in.

00:16:53--> 00:16:55

We need to reflect on this when we go home today.

00:16:57--> 00:17:26

All we really grateful we have even if we don't have that much and our own opinions, the province isn't trained us to look at those who are beneath us to realize the true blessings and to look at those who have been affected as a sign for us to return to Allah subhanho wa Taala a reminder of the goodness that we have of the blessings we have. So we can be grateful and thankful to Allah subhana wa Tada Allah subhanaw taala My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

verse after verse He reminds us

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

we don't read the Quran

00:17:32--> 00:17:43

and if we do, we don't reflect on its meanings. Pay attention at the end of the day is hooked up with these verses. Allah subhanho wa Taala says to us in certain

00:17:44--> 00:18:00

what parabola who methylmercury yet and candidate arm in a tournament in yet do you have to have them in Colima? Can. Allah subhanaw taala gives us an example of a village that was in peace, harmony, safety.

00:18:02--> 00:18:06

The provisions come to them from all around the world from all places.

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

What did they do in return?

00:18:10--> 00:18:23

Did they think Allah subhanho wa Taala for cover at the anomala they deny the blessings of Allah. So what happened to them return and it does damage and cinammon you get what you deserve.

00:18:24--> 00:18:33

Further go Humala, further Kahala who Billy Bass La Bastille Jewry will hope Bhima can Wisner own. So Allah afflicted them
