boy it is go our boy do I school ruler, Elaine, Rudy

00:03:35 --> 00:04:06

along with Ali loudly, turn off all the mics for next week. If anybody wants to recite any of the kids you can come you can message me and I can listen to your your portion of that recitation in advance and you can come up and recite seats from the girls or from the boys if you want to recite we have awareness mic and Sharla next week, so we can pass the mic around inshallah so and it's going to be any passage about Ibrahim Ali Salaam. So you can find your favorite passage from the Quran about Ibrahim Ali Salam.

00:04:07 --> 00:04:10

So couple of house rules before we begin.

00:04:14 --> 00:04:30

Couple of households will before we begin, you will see some of the volunteers they were wearing green vests. They are Usher's so for the session to make sure that everybody enjoys the session. If they see somebody talking, they will politely come up to you and they will ask you to be quiet.

00:04:31 --> 00:04:59

I hope that we don't have to do that. But sometimes, you know, it just can happen. We don't control that. So if there's a need and stuff and if you have to talk you're more than welcome to politely exit, finish what you need to do and then come back and inshallah you know, this is just from us as a community trying to learn the adverb of being in the modulus of the Quran. It's very necessary because some of the element they said there's no benefit in our iba. If we don't have a clock. If we don't have how

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

we carry ourselves how do we present ourselves in front of the gatherings of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada understand that this gathering is surrounded by what angels. There's angels that are they've got their wings spread out you and I just can't see that. They're all spread out. And they take this gathering all the way to Allah subhanaw taala and Allah says, Why are they gathered? Allah subhanaw taala knows why we're gathered. But he asked the angel, why are they gathered? And they like they gathered, oh Allah to remember you.

00:05:30 --> 00:05:36

Right? And then one angel says he outsmarts the others he says, no, no, but there's one guy who's there for food.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:47

So the angel says, oh, Hola, por headman whom? Magi liqueur. He didn't come for thicker. He said, start with him for forgiveness.

00:05:48 --> 00:06:11

He's like, I'm the one I love forgive me, I want the first one to be forgiven. Mashallah, okay, few other ground basic ground rules for today. Insha Allah, as we go through this together as a community, we're also trying to make sure that we have the best experience together, I want to quickly iterate a few of the things Inshallah, the way the food is going to be served is going to be a little bit different today.

00:06:12 --> 00:06:20

So I do want everybody's cooperation to make sure that it's streamlined and everybody can enjoy, this crowd is inshallah going to double.

00:06:21 --> 00:06:24

So right now we have a chance to fix this. So there will be two

00:06:26 --> 00:07:04

strips of you know that plastic duster Han sofa that will be laid the end everybody will line up, the sisters will have a place they will be in a volunteer telling the Sisters where to line up. And once you grab your food, you come back in those lines, we will close off this area for food time at the time of the food there will be a partition. We'll bring this over here further so the sisters get the full privacy. That way you can come all the way to the front. Once you grab the food, please come this way, brothers and sisters so that we're not all gathered over there as people are getting food. So there will be two rows two lines of sofa This way everybody will go in food, they'll turn

00:07:04 --> 00:07:07

around and they'll come back. That's number one. Number two

00:07:08 --> 00:07:29

is please let the kids have pizza first. If the adults are feeling a little bit, you know they identify as kids nowadays it's okay. But if you feel like that please identify after all the kids have eaten food after they've taken the pizza, there is going to be a reward system for the kids who attend the Halacha regularly

00:07:31 --> 00:08:06

so there's a reward system you know how when sometimes you go you get a card you get a card punched and then if you attend five halacha does every five hole punches you will get a reward towards something that the masjid will be offering. That means that those who regularly come to the Halacha they will have a good chance that the day we will have either the ice cream torque or the bouncing castle or some few other things that we're planning when that happens then the ones with the cards they can actually get in first the others can also get in but they will get in first okay because you came in for knowledge. So we want to reward that so we will distribute those cards probably not

00:08:06 --> 00:08:26

today. Next week the cards will be distributed and then we can have that into every everybody and then there will be one sister that will be responsible this is 12 and under if you're 12 and above you should have other means of motivation. Okay, if you still want hold punching I'm okay with that. I still do that for coffee one last point and before we begin inshallah

00:08:30 --> 00:08:31

I think we're good inshallah.

00:08:33 --> 00:08:34


00:08:35 --> 00:08:59

the basic above the modulars before we start, if you are sitting next to your brother and sister the first several, give them space don't tighten up with them don't like expand yourself and try to take over give them space allow them to be comfortable next to you. Right if they are if there's not space and if you're getting constricted, one person moves out one this is a basic underperformers list inshallah. Today we're going to begin with the story of who

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

Ibrahim Ali is and why did we choose Ibrahim Ali Salaam?

00:09:06 --> 00:09:44

It's why it's almost time for hydrogen. Yes, it's almost time for hydrogen. So we have how many weeks before Hajj? roughly four weeks, okay, roughly four weeks, so we are right into the Hajj season. So to be able to understand Ibrahim Ali Salam story, and then when the Zul Hijjah days come, then we will ramp up these sessions so that we will have two or three consecutive sessions where we can have a full story of Ibrahim Ali Salaam and connected to Hajj and why Hajj is an important area and a pillar for you and I in our lives. Before we get into the story of Ibrahim Ali Salaam. One of the things that I always found

00:09:47 --> 00:09:59

one of the things that I found was almost never do we ever talk about the society of Ibrahim Ali Salaam. So if you go and look up English lectures, you will not find an English lecture or even

00:10:00 --> 00:10:17

Lecture in Urdu, that talks about what was the Society of Ibrahim Ali Salam, how do they live? What did they have? What were their belief systems, and that you have to understand from the verses that Allah has talked about in the conversations of Ibrahim Ali's.

00:10:19 --> 00:10:35

So this is called the bar, which means that this information is not explicitly told to us, but it is implied in the verses that talk about Ibrahim Ali Salaam. So today, I want to lay a basic foundation of that society. It's very similar to what we're living.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:47

So we'll be able to understand why Ibrahim alayhi salam is the ultimate role model for all the three religions, the Abrahamic religions, RIGHT.

00:10:49 --> 00:10:51

Jimmy, let's begin.

00:10:53 --> 00:10:56

How many times is Ibrahim Ali Salam mentioned in the Quran? Who's gonna tell me that?

00:10:57 --> 00:11:00

And if I see you using Google you will lose Varian

00:11:03 --> 00:11:05

Hey Siri, how many times his brain mentioned

00:11:06 --> 00:11:07

how many times

00:11:09 --> 00:11:10


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


00:11:13 --> 00:11:15

sorry. I'm still not sure about that.

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

See, Siri is still

00:11:21 --> 00:11:22

strange times you know?

00:11:26 --> 00:11:31

How about a web search for it? I need to tell Siri that you're you need to go on don't disturb

00:11:32 --> 00:11:33


00:11:34 --> 00:11:35

Yeah, go ahead.

00:11:38 --> 00:11:42

Very close. Very close. 62 very close.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:44


00:11:46 --> 00:11:47

No, no, you can't just keep answering.

00:11:49 --> 00:11:50


00:11:52 --> 00:12:01

68 No. 61 one left 669 Who said that? 60. Now you said it. Okay. Mashallah. Okay.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:15

So when I ask the question you answer, but then everybody quiets. Okay? And one person at a time. 69 times. Who is mentioned more than Ibrahim Ali Salaam.

00:12:17 --> 00:12:27

Musa Ali Salam. Okay, Musa Ali's Anna, other than Musa Ali salaam Ibrahim Ali Salam is mentioned. Second to Musa alayhis salam in the Quran more than any other Nabhi

00:12:28 --> 00:12:29


00:12:30 --> 00:12:31

How many surahs?

00:12:33 --> 00:12:38

Has his story been mentioned in? Or you can tell me the names of the surah few No.

00:12:39 --> 00:12:41

Come on. Everybody knows the first surah

00:12:43 --> 00:12:45

in witchcraft Prophet Ibrahim Ali Salam

00:12:47 --> 00:12:52

Surah CASAS No, I don't think it's cluster clusters doesn't have Bacara

00:12:53 --> 00:12:56

going sequence what's after Bacara? Um,

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

there's a surah with by his name

00:13:01 --> 00:13:39

surah. Ibrahim says, oh, sorry. You've been saying that I'm sorry. Surah Ibrahim, there's a student Surah of Zambia Surah Al Anbiya, then Anka booth, the Seraph spider and a Safa. Okay, these are aware of the passages of his life instances we have like scenes from his life that have been mentioned to us in all these Searles. The other places his main name is mentioned as a passing by Ibrahim Ali Salaam and this and this and this Ibrahim Elisa and this is a passing remark has been mentioned. Jimmy. Alright, next part.

00:13:41 --> 00:13:44

First, we want to understand the Society of Ibraheem Alehissalaam

00:13:45 --> 00:14:15

Okay, and there were three dimensions to any society, any place anywhere you go any home, any household, any job place, it has three dimensions, you have the dimensions of your core values and belief systems. That's why if you work in big corporate, they have these values slathered everywhere your desktop changes to the new values that they have all of these things, because any group of people when they get together, if they don't have core values together, then we can operate.

00:14:16 --> 00:15:00

So core values, they call it the the Creed, dimension, Creed dimension, what is our credo? What is the way we operate? How are we all connected to them together? So that when there is a dispute, how are we going to reconcile? Okay, that's creed that's value system. The second is the societal contract. So the social dimension of that society, you and I today, we have a contract today. It's an implied contract. We are all sitting here. You have somehow agreed to listen to me. I don't know why, but you're still listening to me. Hamdulillah. Right. You have come here you have you're listening to me. There's a social contract that we will be quiet for X number of time and I

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

After that, we will have food and we will enjoy time together. That's a contract as a social contract amongst us. Similarly social dimensions is the second element. And third is the political dimension.

00:15:13 --> 00:15:59

All right, in terms of structure of power, who is going to rise who's going to what will necessitate somebody to be removed from power all of these political dimensions, we want to understand that from Ibrahim Ali salaams time, if time permits, then we will also get into understanding the different dimensions of Ibrahim Ali Salaam. Okay, multiple dimensions about Ibrahim Mani Sena. First, the spiritual or the Creed, the dimensions of that society. Number one, the verse that he recited what Ibrahim and Ibrahim Ali Salaam is called and the Academy he went to his nation, and he said orrible, dilla worship Allah subhana wa Tada. What telco and have Taqwa of him that he can come in contact

00:15:59 --> 00:16:05

Allah moon, worshipping Allah and having Taqwa is better for you if you know

00:16:06 --> 00:16:13

in Amata Buddha when I'm in doing Allah, He I will Santa. You are all worshipping idols.

00:16:14 --> 00:16:26

The word I will fan is very, very interesting for us to understand. Because it's translated as Western. It's translated as idol. What's another name in Arabic language for idol?

00:16:29 --> 00:16:39

We also sometimes name you know, people in especially it's a woman name in the Desi culture, son, I'm good. Okay, I'll SNAM and earlier Sonam

00:16:41 --> 00:17:12

Why did Allah use the word Wesson, or Ozanne and not Sonam. Because when if Allah uses the word of snom, and Allah, then it specifically refers to idols that did worshipped but when Allah talks about Ozanne it talks about idols, whether they are the ones you worship, or the ones we create such as money, such as jobs, such as anything that deviates us from giving our attention to Allah subhanaw taala that becomes a Western.

00:17:13 --> 00:17:16

Everyone today has some form of an idol.

00:17:17 --> 00:17:46

Not like a physical idol, but we have things that are distracting us when we say Allahu Akbar we are not connected to Allah subhanaw taala all of us we are not connected to Allah at a level that the Sahaba has when they would have an arrow pierced them they would say wait a minute, don't put anything on it. Let me get into Salah and you can chop my leg off and nobody would feel the pain they will not feel the pain because they had such a connection with Allah they will not even feel that pain they were not almost not here they transcended

00:17:48 --> 00:17:55

so what is preventing us from that connection that we have other distractions idols that have become important to us?

00:17:57 --> 00:18:04

Okay, name some idols I want the kids to tell us something I want the adults the name of some idols Okay, other than the physical idols toys

00:18:05 --> 00:18:07

Oh, Mashallah. Somebody is like

00:18:10 --> 00:18:19

this is the biggest idol. This is a very big idol. Okay. Yes. TV games, TV shows. Yes.

00:18:20 --> 00:18:23

Cars gaming

00:18:26 --> 00:18:35

video games, okay. From the adults tell me some idols that are not kids related. Money money money Money Can't you see

00:18:38 --> 00:18:41

00:18:43 --> 00:18:47

I mean, I wish you make time we make time are idle so that we're concerned about Yes.

00:18:49 --> 00:18:51

Electronics somebody from the back Yes.

00:18:53 --> 00:18:54


00:18:56 --> 00:18:57

House cake and idol.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:00

What did he say?

00:19:02 --> 00:19:03

I can't hear it.

00:19:04 --> 00:19:05

Say loud.

00:19:06 --> 00:19:07

Andrew Tate.

00:19:09 --> 00:19:10

That's an idol. Okay.

00:19:11 --> 00:19:15

Yeah, I think for our youth it's sad, you know, sad but yes.

00:19:16 --> 00:19:23

We have such so many positive male role models in our history. But you know, somebody like advocate is a role model for our youth now. Yes.

00:19:25 --> 00:19:27

drawing faces Okay.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:30


00:19:31 --> 00:19:38

Okay, Messi, Ronaldo, vitamin C, all of these things. Okay. Yes.

00:19:41 --> 00:19:42

I can't hear.

00:19:44 --> 00:19:44


00:19:46 --> 00:19:52

Takis. I don't know what that is. I'm an uncle. What? Okay, educate? No, no.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:57

I want to educate me. What is it? What are techies

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

chips. I still don't want that as chips for me as chips. You know, chips, fries

00:20:15 --> 00:20:38

Okay, okay. All right. Let's get back. So Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about Ibrahim Ali Salam, and he tells Ibrahim Shush, if I ask a question you answer, right? We have to learn this other we can start having side conversations. Otherwise I won't ask questions and they will be no fun. Okay? If I asked one person answers, and then we all stay quiet, okay?

00:20:40 --> 00:20:54

Then Allah subhanaw taala says, in no matter I will do what I'm doing Allah here I will find and you worship some form of idols, we're definitely gonna if God and what happens is you also fabricate lies.

00:20:55 --> 00:21:22

Where we're living in a society we're living in a month where an entire lie has been fabricated for us. Right, this whole entire thing about the whole bar that I gave the young kids here so I won't mention but you know what I'm talking about. Right? That whole entire month is focused on a lie. If God exists, there is no basis for it. It's fabricated. Science doesn't prove it but we have created if is something that does not have any scientific backing, you just made it up.

00:21:24 --> 00:21:39

In the Levina, terrible dude, I mean, Dooney la, la Yummly Cornella cameras car, why do we form idols in the first place? Allah says that most of the time people, they attach themselves to these materialistic idols because they want dunya

00:21:41 --> 00:22:09

whether it is my degree, whether it is my job, whether it is my business, whether it is my investment for the adults here, it's because I think if I focus solely on this, then it is going to provide me it is it's going to provide me money. And Allah over here and the gates that he says that we're doing, I mean, don't allow he lammle gonna come in his car, these idols don't have any power to provide it as to you. How many of us over here know individuals who are less educated to you, and then make more money than you?

00:22:11 --> 00:22:24

We had friends, we had this friend, I personally had this friend, you know, everybody made fun of him in grade 10. Right, he was considered like, quote, unquote, the loser of the class. Right. Today, he's a millionaire

00:22:26 --> 00:22:29

drives Lamborghinis and Ferraris, and he dropped out from high school and

00:22:30 --> 00:22:39

right, and we have another person mashallah who was a straight A student, he has two PhDs going to his third, and he's hardly breaking six figures.

00:22:41 --> 00:22:50

So Allah is trying to break this that lie on Licona we learn knowledge, we learn LM for the sake of l not for the sake of making money.

00:22:51 --> 00:23:12

Right, the most sacred act of Muslims that we should go and go to university and educate ourselves, sadly, has been pegged to money only. It's so that you and I can fall under the command era Bismillah Arabic Allah, the HELOC read in the Name of the One who created we are a society who reads every scholar of the past, they were polymaths.

00:23:13 --> 00:23:20

There were polymaths which means they were taught in their math, science, physics, whatever, and they were top when it comes to their knowledge of Islam.

00:23:22 --> 00:23:32

And there is no doubt or they're not two opposite ends, you can be at the pinnacle of your knowledge. As a matter of fact, we want smart people to get into knowledge, specific religious knowledge.

00:23:33 --> 00:23:52

The cream of the crop is not coming to that, because we need people with bright minds to be able to come in and relate that knowledge to the people for our modern day times. Then Allah subhanaw taala says the next part, they also had Creed's related to alcohol that society did not believe that we're ever going to be resurrected again.

00:23:54 --> 00:23:59

What happens in today's society almost nobody believes that you're going to ever live come back again.

00:24:01 --> 00:24:12

Very similar almost you go to school nobody believes even the Christians they don't believe some of the Muslims are like hmm I believe. I really don't know but like yeah, sure if you want to say that I'll do it.

00:24:14 --> 00:24:53

That's another problem. They had Allah subhanaw taala says our alum era okay via your buddy Oh Hulk Did you not see that how Allah creates life? So my you read who in America Allah Allah He has he then he returns it back? He brings life then the person or that thing dies Allah This thing is super easy for Allah pulsera fill or the Allah is a go and walk in the earth traveling the earth funds are okay for but I'll help notice how Allah consistently creates the mala who Yun chi or Nash Atal okra then Allah creates that again beginning upon beginning upon beginning how many of these do you know about that frog that freezes in winter and does not have a heartbeat for two months and until the

00:24:53 --> 00:24:59

first fall of spring that happens. Then as soon as the temperature drops, its heart starts kicking back again. Allah is

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

Hey people and Allah shows us the signs the fish that freezes in ponds and has no way to breathe and then right at the end of it it breathes as soon as the spring comes. Allah is like go and around look and look for some Allahu Yoshi on Nash at an okra Allah Hara Allah is able to create in this wildlife life after death death after life and he can create us all back again one more time

00:25:25 --> 00:25:31

in hola hola Felicia in Kadir Allah is fully capable of that. This is the Brahim Ali salaam talking.

00:25:34 --> 00:26:02

Why do we need to believe in Accra, you as the biller you as the Romania SHA, Allah is going to punish those who did not follow Him while you're Harmonia SHA and Allah will be merciful to those who did not like you know, they were good Muslims, they were trying, they kept failing. They kept breaking the promise with Allah. But eventually Allah looked at their effort. One of my one of my teachers, he said that Allah subhanaw taala

00:26:03 --> 00:26:32

he is absolutely fully capable of making all of us Massoud II, all of us would never have committed any sins. He would have made you me, every single one of us who are perfect, we would all be perfect. Just like the angels, we would all be perfect. But Allah loves Allah loves that we make mistakes, and we do Toba and come back to him. He loves that act of ours.

00:26:33 --> 00:26:40

And that's why Allah is like, Well, you're a humble man, you're shy, and Allah is willing to be merciful for whoever because he will look at not the result.

00:26:41 --> 00:26:43

He would look at how much effort you put in.

00:26:44 --> 00:26:46

The effort is what he's after.

00:26:51 --> 00:27:17

Then Allah subhanaw taala talks about another element of their society, which is that they used to believe that all of their societal gatherings let's go to the social dimension, everything in that society revolved around their religious practices. Today, we don't have a predominant religion. But we have practices that are predominantly pegged into materialism and that is the religion today.

00:27:18 --> 00:27:23

Religion as such has left but what has replaced that religion is materialism.

00:27:25 --> 00:27:42

So our societal dimension social dimensions today are all pegged to Black Friday, Christmas Boxing Day in Canada, this this Memorial Day Sale everything is that you know what happens when somebody's about to buy a TV? No, no, no, Black Friday coming in November, man hold two months.

00:27:44 --> 00:28:07

Right? Like our purchases, it's everything is linked to some form of materialism. And that has become the social norm in their times their norm was everything was pegged to their religious practices, false practices, but they would all gather to worship and idle they will all go outside for a you know, a get together. Remember when it moves,

00:28:08 --> 00:28:13

Ibrahim Ali said and they asked him to come He said for Paula in this team, I'm sick

00:28:14 --> 00:28:23

but our land who moved within so they all left the city for a festival a religious FAFSA festival and then he went and he destroyed the idols.

00:28:24 --> 00:28:39

The third element is CRC political what's an example of the political state over there that had there was a king and that King made sure that everybody followed the same religion.

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

Today we have a similar contract in our societies

00:28:45 --> 00:28:50

right it is you accept that which we tell you to be right

00:28:51 --> 00:28:58

it doesn't matter what you have the freedom of religion but you cannot cannot point fingers at something that we think is right.

00:28:59 --> 00:29:37

And this is a deeper conversation some of the brothers in the masala has asked me that can we do a class in a pedo? Because it's a deeper conversation to be had. We have to have even all of us we have to refresh our Artega but study it when I say the word Akita which means creed, what do we believe in? Okay, it's just it's a new word for people creed like what is my my belief contract with Allah subhanaw taala? How do I understand Allah and in Akita, you have three elements, you have the elements of Allah here, understanding Allah subhanaw taala. You have the elements of Naboo Viet understanding prophethood prophets and including that Prophet sallallahu sallam, and then you have

00:29:37 --> 00:29:59

the element of summary, things that we believe that we cannot prove scientifically. Angels are gathering this, this angels are gathered, prove it to me with science, with physics and metaphysics and you're not going to be able to these are some out there is life after death summary. We're going to be resurrected so many things that we have heard and we believe in

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

So in sha Allah if we Allah gives us Sofia, then we will embark on that. So their political climate was the king made sure that everybody followed one form of religion over here the political and I'm climate for us. Is that our political contract? Or did I mention a political dimension in this society is you're free to do whatever but you cannot criticize

00:30:22 --> 00:30:26

even constructive criticism of certain elements of the society

00:30:28 --> 00:30:35

such as anybody who's a history student will know that the worst form of government is what?

00:30:38 --> 00:30:39


00:30:40 --> 00:30:41

go and read history.

00:30:42 --> 00:31:04

It never succeeds. His I'm not and I'm not talking about here, historically, right? But now they're like you live in our societies which you can't see anything against democracy. You can criticize it right? Similarly the king they're like yeah, you believe in me but you can't say anything about this this this these are red lines you can cross we have a societal contract over here of that

00:31:05 --> 00:31:06


00:31:07 --> 00:31:09

Everybody understand that understands that

00:31:11 --> 00:31:14

to other elements that this that Quran doesn't talk about.

00:31:16 --> 00:31:37

One is we don't know anything about the ethics and morality yet the character of that society. No mention of that in the entire Quran. You can read all the stories a story of Ibrahim Ali salaam cover to cover there is no mention of how was the behavior of these individuals.

00:31:38 --> 00:31:42

Question for you guys. Why was it not mentioned?

00:31:46 --> 00:31:46


00:31:49 --> 00:31:52

It's not no, it's very important character is very important to our society.

00:31:58 --> 00:31:58


00:31:59 --> 00:32:19

Why is it why Allah subhanaw taala it's such an important element of society. Allah talks about the political dimension, Allah talks about the religious dimension. Allah talks about the society's social dimension, no mention on the ethics and character of only one nation there is no mention of that. All other nations Allah talks about

00:32:20 --> 00:32:26

their o'clock and there are other and stuff Allah mentions and alludes to, but Ibrahim Ali Salam, no mention why do you think?

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


00:32:33 --> 00:32:34

You got to speak louder.

00:32:39 --> 00:32:41

Beautiful. Okay. So

00:32:43 --> 00:32:54

when, so, for example, if somebody is a mass murderer, right, bad example, but just understand somebody's a mass murderer. Doesn't matter what how his character is.

00:32:55 --> 00:32:59

It really doesn't. He's always such a nice, gentle person. He just killed 100 people.

00:33:01 --> 00:33:11

It doesn't matter, the gravity of the sin that that person has committed. It doesn't matter how good your ethics are, it doesn't matter how good your character is, it does not matter.

00:33:13 --> 00:33:16

And the biggest sin that they had done

00:33:17 --> 00:33:21

was what? They turned away help.

00:33:22 --> 00:33:37

They turned away. Truth once they recognize Ibrahim Ali said um, you know, when when Ibrahim Ali Salam comes out of the fire, his son, sorry, his father, he asked her, he looks at him and he says Wallah, he. His father says,

00:33:38 --> 00:33:44

law in Isla hookah, Feldman. Ilahi. Your Illa is better than my Allah.

00:33:45 --> 00:33:55

He recognized the hub. He recognized that Ibrahim it said I'm came out of the fire. And he's like, man, Your God is man. That's a real God. He's better than our God.

00:33:57 --> 00:34:31

That is why on the Day of Judgment, Ibrahim Ali Salam This is a tangent but just came to my head, right on the Day of Judgment. Ibrahim Ali Salam, he is going to be standing and his father as it his Azur is going to come and he's going to say, my son saved me today. Ibrahim Ali Salam is going to turn to his father. He says, Yeah, about the alum of Calaca la Tasini Did I not tell you in this dunya that Don't disobey me? So the father is going to turn to Ibrahim Ali Salaam and he's going to say that I'll see you luckily young. I will not disappoint you today. My son,

00:34:32 --> 00:34:49

Ibrahim Ali Salam in the last ditch resort effort. He says let's go to Allah subhanho wa Taala he takes us to the court of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and he says, Yeah, Allah. Did you not promise me that you will not humiliate me?

00:34:50 --> 00:34:57

You made me the promise you give me that promise. Indonesia that Allah said, I will not humiliate Ibrahim Ali Sanam

00:35:00 --> 00:35:07

Ibrahim Ali Salam is having this conversation too, with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada he turns and his father is no longer there.

00:35:09 --> 00:35:10

And what he sees

00:35:12 --> 00:35:15

next to him is an N A Guana.

00:35:18 --> 00:35:59

A lizard they call it a bob. Okay. It's a similar if you type in the word blood it's a it's a desert. It's not an iguana, but it's something very similar to an iguana. It's got a rattle it's like a rattlesnakes tail. It's had a rattlesnake tail and it's it's it's it's an animal that is halal to eat. Collagen when he ate it profits SLM, was presented with it, and prompts you said, I just don't like eating lizards. Like, because like, it's just head on. He's like, No, he's like, let me eat it. So he ate it. Right. So this dub, his own father was turned into a lizard. And then an A claw comes from Jahannam and grabs that lizard and throws that lizard into hellfire. There Hola.

00:35:59 --> 00:36:22

They said that Allah subhanaw taala did not wanted the world to see Ibrahim Ali salaams father being thrown into hellfire to save the face of Ibrahim Ali Salaam. He was turned into a love. The second reason why he was turned into a love even hazardous Kalani he mentions about this is that blood is the dumbest animal on the earth.

00:36:23 --> 00:36:31

Because when it sees that you're about to catch that lizard, it finds any hole and puts its head and just stop stops,

00:36:33 --> 00:36:44

finds the hole puts the head in and the entire body is out and it just stops hoping that you're not going to catch it. And they said that who are 101 It's the dumbest animal.

00:36:45 --> 00:36:46


00:36:47 --> 00:36:49

the dumbest human being on the earth

00:36:50 --> 00:36:58

was the father of Ibrahim Ali Sana because he saw Ibrahim Ali salaam coming out of fire

00:36:59 --> 00:37:01

and he recognized Allah

00:37:02 --> 00:37:13

and another nation it says Wallahi Allah in Dino kaha he says to his son more of my son your deen is true. He recognized it and he turned away from it.

00:37:14 --> 00:37:38

May Allah protect us from that? Okay, so that's the reason why there is no mention of any o'clock the art of that society because the the gravity of the sin of shirk is so severe it is so severe that it it does if somebody has committed CIC May Allah protect us from that if you're committed ship it doesn't matter how beautiful character you have how good of an o'clock you have mashallah, what a beautiful Mushrik

00:37:40 --> 00:37:41

doesn't matter like

00:37:42 --> 00:37:50

you are committing schicke it's bigger than committing what it's the highest level of sin in the the levels of sins.

00:37:52 --> 00:38:07

Oh, it's harder than killing it's higher than killing is higher than Xena higher than Zina in Allah il futile unusual in Allah Allah Quran Yoshioka de. Well, if you don't mind doing a Dalek, Allah will forgive everything, except the fact that you do share with him.

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

He is not going to forgive him.

00:38:11 --> 00:38:21

And that's why Ibrahim Ali Saran he was dependent because his society was the pinnacle of Schilke. Allah sent him a nubby who was the pinnacle of the wind.

00:38:22 --> 00:38:52

And in our next class in sha Allah will talk about the dimensions of Ibrahim Ali salaam, and I will just for the for the taste, because some people's like, we just got warmed up and he finished. So just for the taste, you know, appetizers for next week. So the appetizer menu or next week is the dimension of Ibrahim Ali Salaam. And one of the things that it mentions about Ibrahim Ali said, um, is that Ibrahim Ali said I'm gonna Oh Ma, he was an entire nation by himself.

00:38:54 --> 00:38:58

How can we win? Like if you're one? How can you be a nation by yourself?

00:39:06 --> 00:39:13

Your good deeds are so good that you are okay. That's good. Anybody else from the sisters or the brothers? Yeah.

00:39:17 --> 00:39:18

Nobody followed him.

00:39:20 --> 00:39:27

Only his nephew and his wife. That's it. And they're like, you don't that total seven people.

00:39:28 --> 00:39:30

Nobody followed Ibrahim and he said,

00:39:31 --> 00:39:50

but he's still a nation by himself. The owner they say the reason he's a nation kind of own mutton. He's a nation because Allah has instilled in him all the possible qualities that a human can humans can embody in a nation all of those qualities were embodied in Liberal humanism.

00:39:52 --> 00:39:59

Okay, and that's just you know, one of their multiple things that we will study Inshallah, next week in the different dimensions of Ibrahim Ali Salam, once we have these

00:40:00 --> 00:40:14

foundations when we go and read the stories, you will understand that story at a completely different view because you will be looking at that I am parsing it in different levels in sha Allah. Okay, as you can already smell the food

00:40:15 --> 00:40:18

again I will reiterate before everybody stands up

00:40:19 --> 00:40:30

there are volunteers can you the volunteers on this side identify themselves? Who is the lead volunteer for lining up on this side? Where are you are you're the one you're telling the people where to line up

00:40:31 --> 00:40:33

the brothers are like botany hojyo

00:40:34 --> 00:40:40

sisters are all like meticulous methodical there like left right? Was like insha Allah Baraka

00:40:42 --> 00:40:49

no one wanted to use just putting on his best Masha Allah okay sisters, you're ready. Okay. So if I could ask

00:40:50 --> 00:41:01

kids first pizza line for kids, if the kids can go first please form a line everybody has to form a line. Kids form a line and then we can have

00:41:04 --> 00:41:07
