1/4 2/4 3/4
or the entire Quran?
Come on guys. This is like a live Kahoot
Yes, the blue shirt. Sorry
the entire Quran
next another, another attempt Yes, three fourths of the Quran. Three fourths of the Quran is covered with stories for us to ponder upon and reflect upon. Next question.
Everyone ready? Ready? I'm ready. All right, I don't know if you're gonna get this one. Okay, next question. Who is the narrator of the stories?
Allah subhanahu wa Tada Allah subhanaw taala is the one who is narrating the stories. If you remember in our second lecture or I believe in the second lecture as well as the first we talked about two qualities there are two unique things. These are the two qualities of every story of the Quran what are they
think about it.
We mentioned that every dissolve the Quran has two unique
qualities, what are they
are more than qualities? Let me rephrase that. So every story of the Quran is going to have these two elements in them
okay, every story of the Quran is going to have these two elements. One is going to be that story is going to tell you Yes.
duniya and Jana
some stories have done yeah. And Jana. So one is going to be that the story is going to tell us k for nourish, how do we live our life. So there's going to be an element of that story that is going to impact us and help us to understand and reflect and connect with our lives.
This crowd you need to separate
and their cards and they're playing the full on game here. Mashallah. Including my son. So, if anybody feels bad, they shouldn't.
Next part, so it has Kayfun age, how do we live our life? And the second element of the story that always mentioned is how do we change ourselves with the story so there's always a message of the leader, there's always a message of changing ourselves using these stories. Okay.
Okay, next question. We talked about three characteristics of every story in the Quran. So most of the stories of the Quran or every story in the Quran is going to have three characteristics. I will start off with the one maybe to remind our members memories. Number one is it is always going to have an a bra, it's always going to have a very concrete lesson for all of us. Number two.
Every story is built on actual reality. It's not a fabricated tale. So you can't say oh, it's fiction can't apply to me. It's an actual event that took place.
So if it happened to somebody else, it can happen to you.
If they were over to oh, we're able to overcome it, you can overcome it.
So it's relatable because an actual life of human beings just like you and I that went through these events.
So they're not fabricated Makana Hadith, then you've Tara.
And the last part is Duff's Lila, Gu Lishui it details for you everything you need to know, in every age of your life in every section of your life. It details for you all that you need to be able to live life. Okay.
All right. Now we're going to go back to our story of sort of de Brahim, and we'll do a quick recap. So last but not least, Abraham the life of Ibrahim Ali Salaam. So last time, we had mentioned that we're going to talk about different dimensions about Ibrahim Ali CERAM. So that when we go through these stories, you're able to read like you remember these points and you're able to see these points being displayed in the stories all across.
So what is what I'm presenting right now is throughout the entire Quran, all of that which has been mentioned in all the different stories in different places Ibrahim Ali Salaam has been mentioned.
There are different elements that the Quran highlights about Ibrahim Ali Salaam. And last time we said how many dimensions are we going to touch upon
three dimensions of Ibrahim Ali Salaam. The first dimension is the dimension of him being a prophet. The second dimension we said last time is his connection with Allah subhanaw taala.
The third dimension is his connection with his own people and how he dealt with them and the attributes that he showed. So for us to be able to understand all of these together, okay, so first last time we talked about the dimension of prophets Allah Allah Prophet Ibrahim Ali Salam, as a
Nebby as a messenger. And we talked about three or four elements of that dimension anybody remembers anything?
What is the first part of Ibrahim Ali Salam
Ibrahim Ali Salam was considered en
OMA by himself. That's what we covered. He was considered an OMA by myself. You beautiful
next next dimension is that he was the Imam
right Allah subhanaw taala talks about that in the Quran. In Niger I locally NASCI Imam Ah, you're going to become the ultimate leader. That's why today all the Abrahamic faith, they all attribute themselves to who Ibrahim Ali Salam. Then the next dimension of Ibrahim Ali salaam being a Nabi is he was from the oluwo last zoom. He was from the oil awesome mineral Rasul the messengers that had the most amount of
patience and determination,
absolute patience and determination
who are the five Ambia of realism?
Who can tell me
there are five messengers who are considered hola Asan. Aloo means the one who possesses Eliza means determination, ie the challenges that Allah subhanaw taala gave them these challenges were so difficult in nature that they have they required the highest level of determination for them to be able to succeed.
Okay, so five Ambia who's going to tell me
No, Haile Salam Prophet, no, Holly said I'm okay. Who's next? Yes.
Prophet Ibrahim, very smart choice. Mashallah. Okay, some Yes. From the girls.
Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Prophet Musa these animals left.
As it said, I'm somebody that is from the sisters that Sid sent him. He said he said, So these were the older Lasme universal? No Hala. He said I'm
Ibrahim it. He said I'm Musashi. He said I'm
reciting Salam and Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Okay, so he was cool as me minute Russell.
The next part the next quality of nubby prophets. Allah Muhammad says the next dimension of Prophet Ibrahim Ali Salam is that Allah subhana wa Tada had selected him or chosen him estafa who he chose, Ibrahim Ali Salam was selected. He was the choice of O'Brien ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada in Allah has buffer Adam. We're know what Allah Ibrahim and in this specific case not did Ibrahim Ali Salam see either Melissa I'm new Holly salaam are chosen. But Ibrahim Ali Salam was chosen and Allah also chose his entire
and that is why after Ibrahim Ali Salam, every single Nabhi that came came from whose lineage
Ibrahim Ali Salam so any Nabil that came after Ibrahim Ali Salam, it was all from the lineage of Ibrahim Malasana
I'm getting disturbed there's like somebody talking here so I'm getting disturbed and I'm
the next part
Ibraheem Alehissalaam the next element is what I tell you who fit dunya Hassan or fill karate.
Let me know follow him. Allah subhanaw taala give Ibrahim Ali Salam in this dunya Hassan I II was looking at his MACOM today, every single person irrespective of their Jews, Christians everybody has mentioned in this dunya is Hassan.
Everybody revered him and Allah had given him fit dunya has another multiple meanings number one is that despite the challenges Allah subhanaw taala kept his name at the highest level in MACOM. The second element of Hassanal dunya hashanah that every single prophet that came that is what graters honor, can somebody be given in this dunya as a reward that every interview that comes comes from your lineage for dunya Hassan Well Phil Hera de la mina Salatin and in the era Allah subhanaw taala has chosen Ibrahim Ali salam from the ones to be the pious ones. For some odd reason my memory reminds me that we've not done this. I think I've I've I I've done the notes but did we cover these
things last time? We didn't okay, it's all highlighted but in my brain I thought we were done so I started my notes beyond this hamdullah this was covered it because I'm going through these and I'm like, did we I don't remember mentioning this last time. Okay. I guess it's not a recap it's a new notice for you guys now.
Okay, so this was in reference to Ibrahim Ali Salaam in his spiritual dimensions, who's going to quickly iterate them I just want all of them right now. First one was he was
He was OMA by himself. Number two was he was the Imam number three. He is from oil, Azmi Mina Rasul. Number four. Allah chose his entire family stuff ah, who al Ibrahim, everybody from his family has been chosen, including you and I today. And number number five. I tell you now Dounia Hassan Orfila Hirata lamina, Salah Hain that in dunya, and akhira, who is the chosen one? Five attributes as a nubby that he has? Nobody else has.
Is that clear for everyone?
Next part, Thani, the second element
I'll Rila APA Billahi to Allah his connection with Allah subhanaw taala.
So this is the dimension of Ibrahim Ali Salaam and how his connection was with Allah subhanaw taala.
So the first thing Allah subhanaw taala describes
Ibrahim Ali Salam as multiple times in the Quran, honey fun Muslim.
He was Hanif and Muslim. Hanif Muslim is if you look at Hanif it means unified Muslim and full submission.
Right and if you were to understand that and paraphrase it, that he had his submission only belonged to Allah and nobody else. HIS Submission only belongs to Allah and nobody else. Now, in order for us to become Hanifa and Muslimah, or in order for you and I to have this quality of being Hanif, unified, and Muslim, the one who submit we need to have four attributes.
We all need to have how many attributes for attributes, in order for us to have our submission, our full constant concentration of rabada and submission of our life all in only for the sake of Allah, we need to have four attributes number one,
a honey bun Muslim in person he must be absolutely sincere with Allah Subhana
Allah, Allah Azza wa a slammer
Lee amarilla Hi Donna, you become absolutely sincere and you fully submit to the commands of Allah subhanaw taala that's number one. Number two,
that you do not
change anything in the religion the way Prophet sallallahu Sallam has left for us. Ie you don't add things in the creed. You don't add things in our way of understanding Allah you don't come and say there is no five now there's six prayers you don't add or delete the absolute of these these Dean's you keep them as is. That is one of the unifying characteristics of our faith as Muslims compared to all other faiths.
The Bible says that the woman must cover their hair
The Bible says you cannot eat pork. The Bible says and says and says,
But for them, it's like, oh, we believe in the Bible.
It's optional if you practice it
right. As for Muslims, whatever Quran says we must follow that who who we must submit to that?
So number two, is that we do not change anything from our deen.
someone who becomes Hanifa Muslim Ah, what a matter or when something a form of deviance comes something that may take you away this person because he has the submission to Allah subhanaw taala he automatically turns away from that which will take him away from Allah.
That's an inbuilt thing in a Hanifa Muslimah look at Ibrahim Ali Salam he sees all of these people idol worshipping don't make sense to me.
Let me look at the star let me look at the moon and he's going through that. So the Hanifa Muslimah attribute is when you have submitted to Allah that Allah inspires in you disability and main Why did you turn away from that which will mislead you automatically
and the last part is lemmya condominial Mushrikeen
and Hanifa Muslim person cannot have should
not should aka bottle
which is associating partners with Allah and not ship a scuttle the minor ship
where sometimes in Salah right people come to pray
and you know you know the story right of the person who was praying at Zohar time he comes into my shed and people come in it's like really hot and they see this person praying in the sun And subhanAllah very long ruku very long since the so first raka goes and these these travelers they come and they say Masha Allah Masha Allah, what a pious brother like Subhanallah look at how he's praying in the middle of the sun and look at let you know to Lusardi he was to God. He was cool. He has beautification in his Salah and stuff. So after the second raka they're like, they're still impressed, and they're still talking. So during the Salah, the brothers like, I'm fasting also.
Right? So he wanted to show off that I'm praying, but I'm also fasting like you don't know, I've got another element in mind. So when these type of things come in,
where our Salah has become extended, because we are in a public environment, right, but when we're alone, it's like a bullet train fast, Salah those are all elements of ship.
And we have to seek specific doba from them.
And it's a constant battle. So what differentiated Ibrahim Ali Salam is he never had that feeling ever in his life while submission to Allah subhana and no shirt. Okay, so that's the first quality what's the first quality we primarily Salam?
Hanifa and Muslimah Okay, remember that Hanifa Muslimah number two, Shakira Leah and rune and Rumi, Alma and Alma hula. He was thankful to all the bounties of Allah subhanaw taala.
His connection with Allah was predicated on the feeling of absolute thankfulness to Allah subhanaw taala.
Throughout the Quran, multiple elements of were Ibrahim Ali Salam showed gratitude number one, when
Ibrahim Ali said um
Allah subhanho wa Taala give him Naboo wa number two when Allah subhanho wa Taala Harada who ILA Deen al Hanif Allah guided him to the right path, he thanked Allah subhanaw taala for that, then Allah gave him the Naboo Ah, he thanked Allah subhanaw taala for that Allah gave him the messenger Hood, he thanked Allah subhanaw taala for that Allah made him and Imam he thanked Allah subhanaw taala for that Allah saved him from the fire. He thanked Allah subhanaw taala for them, Allah subhanaw taala saved him from Nerud, the Thalia Allah He thanked Allah subhanaw taala for that Tao for dunya Hassan he thanked Allah for giving him good in this life.
And then Allah gave him pious children throughout Subhan Allah the thank Allah for that. And this way if you read the entire Quran it is filled with Prophet Ibrahim Ali salaams absolute gratitude towards everything
that happened now as a speaker I can feel when the energy in the room is gone. I need everybody to stand up
I see people yawning I do not like that.
Everyone stand up
okay Mashallah. You
We're all standing in these carpets, these carpets are so foof so I want everyone to form a complete absolute self facing me. Okay, one complete self. There's so much gaps. I need you to fill this up that one, go back, fill this off everyone fill in the stuff
that just stay on the side. Kids move this way.
Fill in the stuff, everyone. Okay? And everybody keep standing. Keep standing. All right, what I want you to do is turn so imagine like this, turn this way, just like that. Turn that way. Okay, now you have a beautiful shoulder of a brother or a sister in front of you. Just gently tap them. Do not give them a karate chop.
Okay, gently tap them.
Oh, you have to join him. He's alone. You will get it will switch story. Keep going. Some of the brothers are taking out their full frustration and anger they like October download.
Gently tap tap tap tap. Alright, switch sides. Switch sides. Turn round. Switch sides. Sides, Turn around, turn around.
Slowly slowly. Let's not
keep going keep going. You got to give the exact time one minute for both sides. Insha Allah
Okay, everybody sit down
okay, come on up. All the all the people that are coming in Bismillah
All right, so who's gonna remind me the first quality of Ibrahim Ali Salam with Allah subhanaw taala.
Misha, I saw your eyes roll.
Honey, fun Muslim ah. Right. Unified in his submission, Hanif and Muslim number one. Number two, he was thankful to the bounties of Allah. Shakira Lee and Rumi. Oh, Lima Annamma. Allah, who are they? Okay.
Number three, on Eaton, Maratea. He was an absolute obedience of Allah subhanaw taala. And he never complained,
never complained. He didn't have anybody who followed him.
Nobody followed him. Later on his his, his nephew, his nephew followed him do Taliesin and other than that nobody followed him.
His own family and that's it.
If you think about it, the test of him and it has mentioned at one point, kind of more he than he was the only person on toe hate on the entire planet.
Everybody was insured except Ibrahim Arisa
and that is one of the other meanings of honey fun that he was alone Muslim if you take the other Tafseer of that, so he was obedient and never complained.
Number three, so one and two you can take both of them
both of you.
Number three, what is the most famous name that we know about Ibrahim Ali salaam other than Ibrahim Ali Salaam.
Holly Lulu, he was Helene Allah. Allah subhanaw taala has taken how many Helene's?
Khalil is an absolute close friend. How many Helene? Does Allah subhanaw taala have
two? First one is Ibrahim Ali Salam who's the second one?
Who's the second one?
Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the word Helene.
The definition of Helene is a levy Aquila. safilo be Hi had that Halal hub Bauerle would the NAFSA who were heard about Whoa, this is interesting. So what happens is a Helene is a person who just unifies His love and removes all other forms of love. There is no attraction and love other than the love of Allah subhanaw taala in that person's heart until the state arrived, it happens until it happens to be that that person His love has permeated in every single cell of this person's body and there's no room left for any other love. The word Helene Calella Johan Lin who comes from two meanings. One is what our pickle
pickles called in Arabic
can are called halal. Why are they called halal?
And what's the connection with Helene?
You all have had a char
what is the connection with a char and Ibrahim Allison's connection with Allah
beautiful, the brine that you use to pickle when they say the halala that this thing has become hulled all of that Brian has penetrated into that fruit or that vegetable that you have placed all the flavors have immersed themselves into this food similarly the love of Allah, the way the pickle immerses, and the pickle brine immerses itself into the elements of vegetable. That is how the love of Allah had immersed Ibrahim it Sena
the hell, which one came for this? This is a very nice brother Islam says which one came first? The pickles are the love of Ibrahim
I Allah Who that's that's a question I can't answer. I didn't I didn't know I don't know. I think the Arabic language existed anyways. The second meaning of Halal the halal
is is when we use in Ireland snon Right you give a gap now halal or something has halal. You know, in demand somebody has an issue with their brain they say that fulfill Iman feel
that you have some form of weakness which means that the Hello means that your love so when he becomes highly Lola, his love for Allah and the love for the second item the gap in between is so huge that that item almost doesn't exist.
So he's able to seclude and secure his love for Allah subhanaw taala at a level that there is no possibility and the closest second love is so far away that it can even get close to him. And that's the second meaning of Helene pallulah So his other name is Helene. So his connection with Allah is defined as Kali Lulu
the next quality is alpha Bill rude while Mita he was an app's like he always fulfill the promises. When he made a promise, he always fulfilled the promise.
The next one is Mooney been ill Allah He died.
And this is something very important for us. Ibrahim it said um
he wasn't a person who would often return the word Muneeb means translated as repenter Yamapi Mongolian or do thermos. But that's not the actual meaning of the word money. What's the root word of the word? Muneeb?
Sorry, NABBA No.
no one while ba Okay. An Abba noble, okay. So which means to what?
What does it mean to return back to return back to an Abba che, you returned it back? Okay. So similarly, Ibrahim Ali salaam Karina Mooney been ie that whenever he was occupied with something in the dunya guests come family whatever the minute he got an opportunity he returned back to Allah.
He did not want it to be in any other state other than in the company of Allah subhanho wa taala. So it is mentioned about him in Ibrahim Allah halimun
A WA whom Muneeb
that he was Helene, he had forbearance. And number two, he was somebody who would often return back to Allah subhana wa Tada. Whenever he get distracted, the minute he becomes conscious, he goes back to Allah.
Right and for you and I am uneven becomes repenter because every time we make a sin or we deviate from that path, and we commit, something we do wrong, we returned back to Allah subhanaw taala. You see Allah subhanaw taala was absolutely capable of making every single one of us like an angel.
You will not you and I wouldn't we would have never made any mistakes. We would be perfect. We would only know one thing which is to worship Allah subhanaw taala and we would not know anything else.
But Allah subhanaw taala in his infinite love and mercy for us, He created us with this defect
that we will break his lines. We will walk away from his path. But what Allah is waiting for is on the other
around waiting for you to come back.
Are you going to return back? Are you going to come back then?
Ibrahim, Allah honeymoon A WA Hemani
Alright, so those were the dimensions of Ibrahim Ali Salam when it comes to his connection with Allah subhanaw taala Okay, now we'll do a quick recap. Somebody can tell me quickly all the dimensions that we mentioned. Or at least start off what's the first one Hanifa Muslim Ah, good number to
me thank thankful to Allah subhanaw taala Shaka, number three
tiny 10 Mateja never
find the 10 that he will owe you what? I forgot the word.
No, no. conditon is I just translated one minute ago. Oh
no, no, no, no, no conditon was
come out complaining so he never complained. He never complained. And he always was an utter upbeat obedience of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And hollyland He was the allele of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Number five is Wafaa he always fulfilled his his promises. And number six is he was Mooney been, he had the state of returning back to Allah subhanaw taala.
All right, the next release, the next connection, the next dimension and inshallah next week we will begin with our first story. So the next dimension of Ibrahim Ali salaam, we must understand is his connection with who his connection with his people.
Immediate his connection, whether it is his own family, or whether it is his immediate people the calm. The first element about Ibrahim Ali Salaam and his people is that we must understand we've talked about it, but this is important. Ibrahim Ali said I'm himself was the OMA. So he didn't have followers. But he was always concerned about those who didn't follow.
And that's a very important element for us.
How do we treat somebody who doesn't follow?
Do we have that love? Do we have that care? Do we have that for do we feel? Oh my God, there's so many people and if they don't have the message, what's going to happen?
At least that feeling right? Ibrahim Ali Salam had that so that's number one that he was an OMA yet he was an Omar by himself. And nobody followed him yet. He cared for all of those people like his own Oma.
So he had that connection with them.
Allah subhanaw taala says
yeah, to Mao, hyena, elago and Tibet mean letter, Ibrahim Hanifa. Who was being told over here prophets of Salaam and saying follow the way and the past of Ibrahim alayhi salam, honey fun.
Honey fun he was one unified. Well Makana Minella Mushrikeen and he did not do shirk. But over here the quality of Ibrahim Ali Salam is that he was didn't have anybody to follow but yet Ibrahim Ali Salam, his mom is such that Allah is asking Prophet salallahu Salam follow and learn from his message and his way
number two, kinda halimun He had an element of forbearance, and this is something very important for us today. So the element of forbearance is an interesting story. Two messengers, they come to Ibrahim Ali Salaam. They are angels. For Jah, Iberia, Julian Hanif and another place I mean, he brought a big fact. Veal, and it was honeyed ie it was cooked really well done. Right. soft and moist. Hanif. Hanif is basically when you cook something when you dig a hole
and you burn a fire, you allow the earth around that hole to heat up. And on those embers after the logs turn into embers. You bring some form of vegetation you find whatever you can outside you cut some trees and stuff you put them up, those trees will form some form of a natural smoke and you put that meat on top and you cover it up with some form of a lead or something and you let the residual heat of the earth cook the meat. That is called something honey. Okay.
And it's really tasty.
By the way, I met the Cerro de versus Rudy brother today he's not here. So he showed me a video of he made in his backyard this whole thing. Some of the brothers over here they did piano they went and ate without me. So I am not going to forgive them until I go to the person's house but you
No and I saw the video and some of the people who are the Muslims and leaving Salah here I was a bit you know hurt so just saying that for the for the record for people so anyhow the brother I told him I said why don't we make one here so we can cook honey over here for all you guys so he's super excited he said
the amount of people you have we're going to have to dig like a three two meter hole in the ground because how many goats are you going to cook for all these people at least four to five? I was like Okay, so can we do that so inshallah he's gonna figure out a way to at least have some form of a honeys over there. So so all the brothers all mashallah look at their faces illuminated Democrat and they're all the like, when is that meat going to come? So as he brings the honeys what happens to Ibrahim Ali salaam
they did not eat but oh, just I mean, who prefer he's like, ah, going on?
Lulu half. Don't be scared. We have been sent to call me Luth.
What was their sin committed sin?
Okay, it was the Pride Month. That was their sin. Right? The sin that the people of the Pride Month commit, that was their sin.
Look at Ibrahim Ali salaams
absolute feeling for a pain for these individuals who will be punished because of a sin they're committing but he's worried about the pain that they're going to feel in the punishment.
And he says and over here some of the authors they have said that number one, I'm Lila shoes. They were part of that community. Number two, they are hurting his nephew.
My own nephew is the Nabhi You're hurting my nephew. You he shouldn't be siding. You know, imagine if somebody was hurting your cousin. You're like jovia I will support my I don't care. I'm going to support my cousin over here. He should have sided with who he should have sided with totally said I'm great man. These kids. These people have made my my nephew's life miserable. Good for you guys.
Imagine if this happened today with any one of us will really be like an Hamdulillah. Finally Allah sent up to them. I'm serious. Like that's what we would say. Look at Ibrahim Ali salaams Helm, which is an element of forbearance that you're going to you're going to overdo you're going to overlook whatever happens. So they were so sinful, and they're hurting his own nephew.
And an ESA Oh, they were horrible people in dealings.
For a ha Ibrahim you just did. He started arguing with the angels. I'm not going to let you go. Even Casey he mentioned some details again. He said it's raw Elliot so but again for us to be able to visualize he says for alhaja unit who whom he started grabbing their hands to say you're not going to leave. You cannot punish these people go back to Allah tell them stop this punishment.
How would we react?
And how much hidden do we have? Like honestly, if I asked myself like man, I don't know.
Sometimes like I hope this thing happens right? Like deep down inside the candela will be saved. Our kids will be saved we have all the good hopes. But look at him he's not worried about that. He's worried about the pain that these kids will these these people will feel.
Bella Maya and you Ibrahim aroa wotja atwill. Bushra you Jai de Luna Allah says you Jaya de Luna. So now his G doll is like I'm not gonna say take no for No, I need to talk like we need to have a conversation with Allah right now.
Allah is saying to God, like he started arguing with me.
You Jai de Luna? Why can you do this? How can go tell Allah I'm telling him this No, this can't happen.
Fear call me loose.
And then Allah is like in Ibrahim Lohan halimun Allah Hemani Ibrahim was filled with forbearance. And he was somebody who always returned back to Allah subhanho wa taala.
And this is just one of the few examples of Ibrahim Ali salams helm and forbearance that has been mentioned.
For example, in another class, Allah subhanaw taala when he recognized that his father is not going to
he's not going to accept and the phone is not going to expect then I says well Malka Anna is still follow Ibrahima, the OB Illa mo worry that in one year, he made this the fall but there was a promise that was made by LaMotta by en Allahu
Allahu Allah. That's the other part.
We're gonna talk about it's nice to have these emotional feelings and feel the pain of other people. But when it become became evident for him, my father is not going to change.
He's an open enemy of my Helene. He's an open enemy of my Allah. When that became evident to Ibrahim Ali Salam, O Allah ma Tavi and Allahu Allahu ie his father, I do Lilla He is an enemy for Allah.
What did he do?
To Ebola? I mean,
I have nothing to do with you or my father.
I've tried my best. I've tried to bring you to the past. But now it is very evident that you are an enemy of Allah.
To Allah I mean, who he absolved himself from Ibrahim Ali said from his father. Then Allah says in Ibrahim, Ibrahima la wa Hoon, Helene. He was an oft, and he was filled with so much for business that Allah is saying he used forbearance, often as a tool, even after his father, and he has drawn that line. So that's one element that we must feel sympathy, we must feel pain. I met somebody the other day from the masjid they, they wanted to go out with me, we went out, we had a conversation. And they were crying, because one of their own
cousins, they ended up taking their life because they were inflicted with this mindset. And they did not know and it was a genuine mental health. And, you know, there, they ended up and he was crying with me, he was having coffee, he's like, I want to talk this out. Because, you know, he was feeling this way. And nobody had a solution. And everybody outcasted him from the community. And this was a genuine issue that he was facing, and eventually ended up taking his life. This is somebody in our message, it happened to their cousin up somewhere in upstate New York or somewhere like in upstate up north somewhere. So point being that, first, we must feel sympathy about this, that those people
are going through a challenge. What disservice that happened was in 1970s, when the DSM, which is the manual for mental diseases, there was something called Gender dysphoria that was removed from that dictionary.
That was removed in the 70s. So that all of this so this is not something new that happened. This was something's planned in the 70s. You're just seeing the results of that right now. As for those parents who have given their kids Instagrams and they're under 16, I don't know if you saw the post from Elon Musk yesterday, Instagram is openly promoting accounts of pedophiles.
Let that sink in, I eat these kids are going to lure your kids into illicit relationships and Instagram is openly their algorithm is promoting that.
And Elon Musk tweeted yesterday about that, that we need to be parents have to be careful. There should be no reason why and under 16 should have tic tock Instagram, or any form of social media that is not supervised.
And last month, they recently added disability. So if you have a kid that has an Instagram account, you can go to their Instagram and you can access parental control in tick tock in all of these firstly, tick tock you should just delete. But that's it should not be even there. But if they're going to use Instagram, there is some good on there. Make sure that you have parents will access to your child's account, you know who they're contacting who they're messaging, because that's where most of the kids are going astray because those messages happen and the kid leaves and then ends up being into some form of a trap did not even know.
So we should feel sympathy about these and imagine and be careful about what they're planning for our kids now, which we will see the results in the next 30 years. Okay, the second quality of Ibrahim Ali Salam
is kind of funny um
min min min Arja Allah, if it becomes evident that they are enemy of Allah.
If it becomes evident that they are clearly attacking you for being a Muslim, and they have no agenda whatsoever except absolute hatred for Islam, it becomes evident for you. In that case, Ibrahim Ali Salam, he completely absolved himself from that and he took a very strong stance although he will singular alone. That's where Allah subhanaw taala says, By the cannula come on Hassan I don't feel Ibrahim you have perfect in a in a beautiful example in Ibrahim it said I'm we're living
In a man who is caught on a call me him in Bourassa Omen COMM And those that believe they said, We are absolutely free. We completely absolve ourselves with you and all the things that you do.
Let me matter I will do and I mean doula, and that what you worship other than Allah subhanaw taala Gafford have now become Lebedeva in an hour by Nicola Dawa. We deny everything you believe in our hostility is absolutely clear.
Today, oh, you're you're we love your truth.
You should love our truth. We all love we all are on truth. Right? No, there's only one truth.
There's only one truth.
Let's let's do this quickly. Okay, this get this can only work if everybody closes their eyes and puts their hands puts their heads down. I know there are some parents here, please. Let's do the social experiment. So eyes closed and just look down. Everyone eyes closed, everyone eyes closed. Look down, I'm going to ask a question. Don't raise your hands in a way that other person can know you raise your hands and raise your hand slowly. Just just you know, raise your hand like, move it up. Eyes closed. I see some sisters at the back. Your eyes are open. I can see them. Some of the brothers I can see. Eyes closed. Okay.
This is a question if you are under 30 Answer this question. How many of you feel uncomfortable with the fact that those who are not Muslim? are not going to make it to Jannah? Just raise your hands. Just be honest.
Okay, all right, you can bring your hands down. Okay, you can open your eyes.
Right? I wish you all could see those hands.
So there's there's this perennial is thought has penetrated the hearts of our this young generation. They feel an unease, how can they not enter Jannah.
And those are the conversations we need to have. So we do for the high schooler kids. We have our classes on Sunday, from 11 to one we are opening another class for the university to 18. And plus, there's going to be another class for them. But these are the type of conversations we need to have. They're coming back Ibrahim Ali salaam, he says I have completely absolved myself and with that which you associate other than Allah subhanaw taala. And our animosity I eat our Adamawa has become absolutely clear.
And I shall not
submit other than Hector told me no Mila until you believe in Allah. Why the Who's the one and only Illa cola Ibrahim and then the whole element about Ibrahim Ali said I'm making Safar for his dad. So that makes it clear that Ibrahim Ali Salam, one of the qualities the way he dealt with this nation, he was super super patient filled with forbearance understood the pain of the community, but once they draw the line in DC, we are never going to accept this. Then at that point, you've done your job.
And at that point, you absolve yourself you step back and you say Bismillah, Masha, Allah, I've done my job. And I be like Ibrahim Ali said, This is how the Iraq War Vainio Vayner COMM This is a separation point, I've done my best a lot of times our youth they get stuck with this thing. Oh, but she is such a good person. I am only friends with her or I am only friends with him so that they can become a better Muslim. Or so they can they can convert to Islam. Many times a lot of us we lose our own faith in that process.
Right. And we're going to talk about it but Rahim Ali Salam and his conviction in the next story to insha Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala bless you all, for being here. The team at the back. Where's the team? Are you guys almost ready? Okay, so here's how we're going to do this.
We need an extra part, those two partitions. Can we get those partitions here so we can cover those for the sisters. Nobody gets up. I'm going to tell you how this is going to go. Okay. So the volunteers have those roles. Sisters, you have the rolls, plastic rolls, sisters, you have the plastic rolls, the sisters have a small role.
They're going to need more than that. So plastic rolls, we need more.
Can you move here so that they can move this way they're going to put that partition. Okay, let's block this. All the sisters if I can ask everybody to stand up and go on one side of the gym so they can lay down the roads right very quickly. So if you can all get up, we're going to put the partition you can come all the way to the front and everybody will be sitting down on that on on the Serhan or the plastic you will be sitting down on that pizza will come to you we're not forming a line.
So you will sit in on those plastics
Same thing with the brothers if you can get up half the brothers on this side other half on the side so the brothers can lay the plastic
last time system
okay, let the sisters put the the rolls, let the brothers put the rolls, brothers please clear up. You're either on one side or the other. We need three rows. Zaid, we need three so one here, one here. Nadine Diana.
