They're learning the art of being polite and quiet Inshallah, in these gatherings,
couple of announcements, I will make these announcements again, but for the time being, I'll make some of the announcements for now. Number one we are
food is going to be brought to you.
So the way the food Logistics is going to work, can you remind me and then to about food? Before I end? I just say a reminder of food. Can you remember that?
Sure, at the end of the lecture, at the end of the lecture, if you miss out you're not gonna get food.
Just kidding. He's like, What, like game, you're gonna get pizza inshallah. So as soon as the lecture finishes if we could just have everyone move to the sides and the brothers can put down and decisions can put down those plastic
you know, duster hands or so fries, and then the US you sit on them and Insha Allah, they will bring the food directly to you. So we'll be sitting and the food will be served to us. Okay.
That's number one. Number two, we have cards that we wanted to distribute to the kids I think it's better if we do it towards the end more kids will show up then we'll do it towards the end. Who's going to remind me of cards towards the end. Okay, remind me about the cards we have the distribution cards and stamps so that every five lectures you get a treat, Inshallah, okay, so you're going to remind me towards the end about those inshallah beating Allah. Alright, so last week, quick summary. What did we cover last week?
It's a good idea to take notes sometimes. Just saying.
What did we cover last time?
anybody remembers anything from last week?
From now not for the food.
Say what? What food did you eat? What food did we have last week?
You even forgot that?
Allahu Akbar. Okay, what do we have?
You had pizza Okay, Masha, Allah and Allah. All right, so what did we cover from the story? If Ibrahim Ali Yes, it's Mila.
Beautiful. So he really was concerned about his people who was very much concerned about his people. And we talked about the multiple dimensions of Ibrahim Ali Salam if you remember. We talked about the multiple dimensions of his society how he was as a person, his connection with Allah, His connection as a messenger and his connection with people so we talked about these three dimensions to Rahim, Ali salaam, and we said we will get into the story of Ibrahim Ali salaam right away in sha Allah today. Now we begin the life of your Rahim Ali Sam. Today we're going to begin the life of Rahim Salam in the Quran, the general rule. Or if you were to look at all of the MBR that Allah
subhanaw taala has spoken about in the Quran, they will all
Allah is going to cover their lives in three aspects of their lifetime. Either we know something about those profits as a child or as a baby, named me a few.
Musa Ali Salam,
Isa Ali Salaam.
He's in the next category.
Use a filing system.
So none of our profits the profits that we know about
Their childhood from the Quran
we don't know much about him in the Quran about that but good attempt it's prophets SLM is not one. Yes
Okay, yes. Ismail Ali Salam we know a little bit about Ismail Ali salaam, that whole scene. Yes. Yeah, yeah, at least that I'm right. So we know snippets of these Ambia before they were Ambia.
We know snippets about them before they were unbeaten.
Then we have the next type of stories about Gambia, which are prophets in their peak of youth. So they were like, peak of their youth hood.
Who are they give me an example
Musa normal ashore Musa? Yes. Musa Ali Salam, we have all stages. So Musa alayhis salam will fit in every category. Right? We have Musa Ali Salam in specific we have Tao the ALI Salam because we don't know nothing about Tao Ali Salam as he becomes old. We don't know nothing about Dada they said I'm as he becomes. Well, how was he born? We know something about him as a young man Soleimani Ali salaam we only have a mention of his death. But other than that we know about the stories of him being a young prophet, very vibrant, lots of energy, lots of power Allah had given them then you have the third type, which is majority of the prophets, which is
as soon as they become prophets, we get to know about their lives. What happened with them, okay. So the exceptions to that is Musa Ali Salam and use of it Salaam. We have a detailed account of their lives in every section of life.
Now for Ibrahim Ali Salam in specific,
Ibrahim Ali salaams, Quranic narrative,
Quranic narrative the way Allah subhanho wa taala, has described Ibrahim Ali Salam, it can be divided into first two categories. There is the time before he migrated to Philistine and the time after he migrated to philosophy. Okay, so where was he before Philistine?
Where was he before Philistine? Which? Yes.
Saudi Arabia in Saudi Arabia didn't exist at that time. So these only 86 year old huh?
Iran, Iraq. Okay. He was in Iraq. Okay. All right. Iraq. He was in Iraq, and in specific which city
Barbin. Right. That's Philistine that sorry. So he was in barbil, Babylon. And then he spends so this entire scene of his father, the fire. All of this is taking place in Iraq. Then profiter Salam Ibrahim Ali salaams life we know about Hijra and building of the Kaaba. That's after Hijra. So that's two things. Now we know a little bit about Ibrahim it said I'm in Babel, and we have lots of dialogue, which is very unique. Because for the rest of the NBR we don't get much dialogue, we get the story. Musa alayhis salam was having this thing and he punched this guy like but we don't understand is like how you did we don't know what happened in that conversation. We know that event
for Ibrahim Ali Salam, Allah subhanaw taala told us a lot of the conversation.
So today's conversation is going to be the few verses that he is conversing for the first time
with his father about religion.
So this is the first conversation he has about religion. Now what was Prophet Ibrahim it said I'm doing before that there's lots of things that have been mentioned in the Tafseer books. We don't have any evidences of that from the Quran. So remember, this is Quranic stories. This is not the seed of that story. So this is what Quran talks about. We're gonna highlight we're not going to talk about this whole thing about you know, oh, there's a Salafi whether he was born in Philistine or Iraq and all of these things. These are things mentioned in our Tafseer books. You can pick them up in any story book of Ibrahim Al Islam, you will get that I would highly recommend that you guys if
you have a time all of us we should go and try to get a copy of you know, a book on stories of the Prophet I P. H. International Islamic publish House Publishing House or something. They have a series
He's on that you can pick it up it should be available on Amazon or somewhere else or any other English book that talks about the profit story and read the story on your own. Also, you can augment this lecture with listening to other speakers that are talking about Ibrahim Ali Sam's life in detail. Our purposes this is everything that Quran talks about, we're not going to go into the fine details of his life. We're going to break down how Allah has how Allah wants us to understand Ibrahim it set up OKAY. Jimmy, so today's today's verses these verses are from sudut Merriam 41 to 48 but we're going to see how far we can go today inshallah
anybody has memorized that Miriam
I know some who files here I can point them
anybody wants to come up and recite is someone who foster like
I don't exist. I was once upon a time in existence but for now I have not anybody wants to come up and recite those verses. It's it's really easy verses of
Come on, guys. You don't want me to pick you.
Any of the sisters?
Nobody. Nobody wants to take the courage. Okay, no problem. Allah subhanaw taala says
that oh, there will be no he Nina shame on you alleging Bismillah here Walkman you're watching what's the quarter Rufina Keita been even on Aw he came in who got and I'll say do fun Nabi you've got it Abby here.
Bertini my Darboux
SmartWater you will see why you will see it on your neon cache
in Khadija ne Mina Larian Milan yet think of it Debbie ne de counseling it all done so we yeah
about de la da booty shape ah on in a shame on that guy. Nice little nine year I'll see ya. Yeah. About the
knee of awful I am a suck er
you in knee Hall for IE a sec God
but Hakuna Ali shape on you already.
Allah subhanaw taala says in these verses and then we'll break them down just so we understand. Those of you that want to follow these are medium Surah Maryam verse 41. So if you have your phones, it's a good time to put them on silent in airplane mode and open that app and follow along inshallah. So you can follow along as we go through these verses in sha Allah. Allah subhanaw taala says what Kuru, whenever Allah talks about this word, whether the Quran
basically what ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala wants you to, to imagine is he wants you he wants to transport you from where you are, and put yourself here for a second. Go all the way back and remember when this happened, because you and I were not there. Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam was not there. So Allah is saying was good and remember when that happened, and then the story begins, was good. Phil Kitabi Ibrahim.
Remember the stories in the book about Ibrahim alayhi salam in Africana studies can now be
two qualities. He was an OB. But before he was an OB, he was Siddiq. Ah,
he was somebody who was congruent from his inside and outside.
I have a friend of mine who, you know, manages these conferences and stuff like that. And we were having some conversations and he was like, it's very hard for me to listen to speakers. Because every single one of us we have a public face. And then in private, we're not as perfect as sometimes people may assume that we are in public. We are all human beings. We're all making mistakes. And he says it becomes very difficult for me because I hang out with them in a private spaces. And it's very hard for me to listen to lectures, because I know privately there's always issues and they're all humans. And that is the beauty of this Deen that you don't follow like, you know, in
Christianity and Judaism we follow they follow and they believe that they
Your pastor or the rabbi's are divine, they're infallible, they can't make mistakes, they've been ordained by God. Hence, they cannot be wrong ever.
Whereas us we follow. We never follow an imam. But we use the Imam as means of understanding how I need to follow Allah subhanaw taala.
So the practice of the Imam as much as it's important, right, but it's insignificant to urinary bladder.
So there's very high chance that somebody could be standing here leading Salah and getting a zero score and you may be walking away with 100. Whereas in the Christianity and Judaism and other religions, he's at 100 All of them are in negatives. That's a subtle difference. So over here the word severe can mean somebody who is congruent, he's in and out are one there is no difference between the what is presented and what is inside.
And that is the dua that Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu used to make. He used to ask Allah subhanaw taala that Allah Who Medina
Sadie Lottie Hi You don't mean Hibernia Oh Allah make that which is secretive of mine better than my obvious
so in the whole kindness a dear kindness and second quality is nebbia now we go into the scene you guys already
I don't feel energy you know what I do if I don't feel energy?
You guys already
got like yeah, it's not a baseball game. Relax.
Next thing you know he's throwing his hat. You don't if you had one
if Carly IV when he said to his father who said to his father,
Ibrahim Ali salaam, he goes to his father and he says something to his father. He starts off by this saying he's saying ya have it? Oh, my father. Oh my dear father. Okay, what does that tell us? He's reminding himself
about the fact that my cause of existence in this world is my father.
It doesn't matter how far away he is from Dean. It doesn't matter how far away he is from Allah. It doesn't matter how far away his practices are from Allah at the end of the day he is my father
and in the Arabic language the word yeah but it
is a shoddy the luck of its extreme care and kindness in these words towards his father as if you're saying oh my dear father
you know in order to say Marais pra a berjon Nobody says that nowadays, right? Nobody says Dad, this is the new words right Dad? It's like in the past. Maybe if you added like I don't remember ever like I only have very few memories of my father ever interacting with my grandfather. I didn't get much time with him. But all of those memories that I have of my father ever interacting I think they're like six or seven memories in total. It's every single time he's like he never called him like he's like you know, a boo G right? A bu GE a Bhaijaan and they were from the heart so they were like a buy in you guys know that Punjabi like you know about Yuki Allah Tada like that but it was
always that that that love and care that was there you can't do that with Dad Imagine you go Oh, Daddy doesn't sound that like that. So you have to use a bar all of you now from now on you cannot use dad
Baba pops Yeah. You know I had a funny thing
so my grandmother
before she passed away Rahim Allah she you know some of the relatives they came to visit her and we were in Makkah Macau or just I don't remember vividly so anyhow the word for a kind of pop right pop and then pops right so my my grandmother was like you know she was like this is very strange pop to see pop below she will she found it very weird like what is this pop but he's talking to his dad pops to see pop below right drink some you know kind of pop or something like that. So hamdulillah the Urdu language or the Persian language or the Arabic language in the language we have added installed.
And one of the best ways you can ensure that your children remember and understand those adults is that they stay connected to the language. English language does not have in it those add up. It's not it was never because languages are formative and expressive of those cultures and Bangladeshi language too. And just wondering does a Bangladeshi brother we just want to acknowledge him here. East by x Pakistani
All right. We don't want to get political here. So coming back, Ibrahim Ali Salam he's calling his father yeah Betty then what does he see after that?
Lima da booty shaped on?
Oh sorry Lima Dara boo doo Mala Yes, ma'am. So free starts off yeah about T. Why do you worship? I noticed he's asking, passing the information in form of a question.
He could have said, I am an OB.
I am an OB, or Buddha, Allah worship Allah.
He could have gone to his that oh my God, Father, worship Allah. Why are you not worshiping Allah?
But over here he refers to the fact Lima taboo, and this is again gentleness. Why do you worship and not talking bad about their idols? Lima taboo, why do you worship? My Allah Snar? What are you?
Why do you worship something that cannot hear and see.
And that's the third point. He's allowing his dad to use his intellect, that if you're going to call upon some God, and you're going to believe that this person is or this individual or this deity, or this thing is going to somehow benefit you. They need to have the element of what?
seeing and also speech. These are called SIFAT. And why Jeeva? Allah? These are called attributes that are mandatory on Allah subhanaw taala
they're mandatory on a god in specific for us, Allah subhanaw taala who is the only God so coming back? He asks latter Lima, terrible Duma Allah, why are you worshiping that which can't hear and see, rather than saying, How dare you worship your idols?
So notice the hikma over here, right.
And other part, which the alumni they have mentioned over here,
is that he didn't. He didn't say, why are you doing for example, you know, so, you know, some of the forms of specific prayers in other cultures and religions, for example, Puja or anything, so he did not single out a specific type of worship from his types of worships. Rather, he said, let's understand that every Nabhi has openly always called upon one thing, which is to worship Allah. So let's talk about the element and the entity and who you are worshiping, rather than how you are worshiping.
And that's very important. That's the key, when you want to give Dawa to someone and they're not really practicing.
Never talk about the how.
Talk about the who,
if they understand the gratitude, the gravity, the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala, then how becomes easy for them. And that's where mostly the disconnect happens with also our teenagers and younger kids, when you see them and when we see them that they're skipping prayers, or they're not really praying.
It's not the know the how we've taught them the how in Sunday schools from the time they were six years of age, they all know the how a parent's responsibility is to understand to allow that child to understand who is Allah? Who are you worshiping. And that is a very important task for us, as parents and also as massages to be able to talk about Allah subhanho wa Taala and his attributes, right? And that's what Brother Suraj is doing in his halacha right the attributes of Allah the smell of Allah. He's Rahim he's Rama and he is Razzak, he is well my nan he is Al Wahab write all the positive attributes and also all we teach our kids he is alone talk to him. He's gonna remind you,
he's alcohol. He is the one who's overpowering you all the heavy attributes, the kids need to know the lighter attributes so they can fall in love with Allah subhanaw taala. That's exactly what he's doing with his father. The Mata Abu Mala is now what are you observe? While you're winning anger che ah,
the other intellectual thing is if they can't hear and talk, if they can't hear and see how are they going to benefit you? Anybody in this world who doesn't have disability? They are not of much benefit to the community.
So he's saying think about it. Somebody who can see and talk somebody who can't see and hear how are they going to be of any benefit to you?
Whether you have any angkasa
the next part, yeah, Betty, all my father
in need Khadija and emunah Lane
And this is like we can spend so much time trying to unpack this. He talks to his father and he says, Oh, my dear father.
In this conversation he says, Yeah, but the four times, how many times do you say Maryberry? abou John multiple times. First time. That's it. So he is trying to bring that connection that he had as a father with him. That Oh my dear father, have you thought about this? Oh, my dear father, have you thought about this? Oh, my dear father, have you thought about this? Oh, my dear father, have you thought about this? And in every single argument he's presenting, it's beginning with the connection that he had with him. Oh, my dear father, you're still my father. I may disagree, but you're still my father. ya have it? Oh, my father in need Khadija Annie minilyrics Me.
I have been given some knowledge.
He's unabIe. But to his father, he's not saying look, look, listen. I'm an island now. So you got to listen to me. Okay, Dad, like I went to this university. I studied for years now I have a bachelor's in Islamic studies. So you know, all you guys need to listen to me because I've got the knowledge.
And that's usually the attitude of a lot of young fresh graduates. That was my attitude to when I was young. I made a lot of mistakes like that, you know, talking about this and that because when you're young, you're like, fresh. Oh, it's like everything is haram. Right? Like to the extent that I remember, I came home and I studied something one day and I threw all or I gave it with all my alcohol, alcoholic perfumes like everything was
the expensive ones. Do I give all of that way? And then lit Oh, wow. There's multiple opinions on that. How did that happen? The more we learn, the more we recognize how less we know.
So over here, this beauty in which Ibrahim Ali Salaam is encapsulating saying oh my father, oh my dear father,
I have been given knowledge, some of that knowledge I would like to share with you. Or another way you can see I have been given some knowledge. Johnny Miniland me
my alum tick, and this knowledge is not something I
learned on a you know, working out or going out in the world and through experiences and interactions. This is knowledge that has not come to you. So this is something it will not come to you. It has specifically come to me. Why don't you seek some of that? I would like to share some of that with you. But the Barony all I seek from you is just follow me. I have little bit of this knowledge is follow me. But follow me not because you want. I'm your son, follow me. Because the rod ones so
follow me because I will guide you to the straight path set out on so yeah, I'll guide you to the straight path. Don't need to listen to me and my kid No, no, just your focus, you want to go on the straight path, right? Everybody wants to go on the straight path. Notice how he does not say to him at this point. By the way, you're on the wrong path. Dad,
you're on the wrong path. I remember, you know, many, many years ago, we attended this course.
On some Aikido class, we attended some Aikido class. And when the class happened, finished, one of the kids and I still you know Subhanallah you know, those are days when we were young. And so one of the friends of mine don't don't move that like that. It'll fall.
flop it back
and move back. Yeah, otherwise it'll follow. Okay. And also the girls don't lean on it, otherwise it will fall on the brothers and you will have catastrophe. I think this won't hurt anyone. So coming back, there was a time when we came back. And we learned some Arcada class. And this young brother May Allah, you know, now on hamdullah he has changed but he went back home and he looked at some of the practices of his father. He's like, Dad, you know what? I got to tell you something. You're a mushrik
his father is like Kavita,
what do you mean? Oh, by the way, I also cannot be in this house because this house is on rubber.
And I'm leaving you guys. You guys are in like all haram
and like he was in university and like, he left, he left his parents soon realize how life is difficult outside.
And you know, he learned to deal with his Mushrik father and state came back like you know, but now we look back at that and he laughs at that he said you know Subhanallah sometimes you know when knowledge is given, and it's not meant
As your to what you should be given sometimes or the way it is encapsulated by some speakers can make a young person feel like oh, everything is wrong. Everything around me is haram, I need to prevent that. So over here, Ibrahim Ali Salam is trying to say what? Not that Oh, Dad, you're on the wrong path. How dare you are on the wrong path? Let me correct you're you're, you're on the wrong path let me fix you. But saying, Oh dad, I have a little bit of knowledge. Do you mind following me? Maybe I can lead you to the right path.
It's a huge difference between saying you're ignorant and you're on the wrong path. Basically, he is saying that, but in a very nice manner. Then the next day Oh,
yeah, a birdie. So obviously the father has not accepted. So he's still insisting there's a conversation that Allah has not given us his father must have responded. And we don't know what he responded at this point. We know what Ibrahim Ali Salam said Ibrahim Ali Salam says yeah, Bertie. Oh, my Father in me
by the Johnny Oh, sorry. Yeah, about de la da booty. shaytaan
now he's not attacking his gods.
He's not attacking the idols. He's not attacking what they worship. He's not attacking the type of understanding your parents may have now that Allah has guided you. He's attacking shape on the root cause of all misguidance he says yeah, about the latter half of the shade on do not worship shaytaan
nobody wants to worship Satan. Well, some people do. Nowadays they have Satan worship or churches and everything. Or strange times. Yeah, buddy. Oh my father law taboo the shaytaan do not follow shaytaan why in a shape honor indeed shape on God Allah Allah money. I'll see ya shaitan was a disobedient to the Most Merciful.
Why use the word ramen?
Why use the word ramen?
I mean, Trayvon is yeah.
A bliss couldn't have asked for forgiveness.
Beautiful. That's the reason that Shavon was a disobedient to Allah subhanho wa taala. But if shaitan had sought forgiveness,
Allah was merciful enough to would have forgiven him.
And that is the case with many of us. It doesn't matter how great your sin is. Always look at the greatness of the one who is going to forgive that sin.
It doesn't matter how great your sin is. Because the greatness of the one who is going to forgive your sin is insignificant in front of that. Over here it says in the shape Anaconda Rahmani. I'll see ya. The second part.
The second reason that the dilemma they have mentioned is that Ibrahim Ali Salam wanted his father to you know, why choose the attribute of mercy?
Because that is the most encompassing attribute of Allah subhanaw taala. Allah is Ramadan to a believer and a non believer. Allah is merciful to all caffeine and a moment. But his Rama Rahim he is only for the believers. But Ramadan encompasses everything. So he wants his father to remember that the God that I worship is a merciful God.
He has not taken you account.
And look, he is so merciful that shaytan is an open enemy of Allah and he's still a merciful God.
Then you are nobody like compared to shape and you're just like so. So there's a chance for you here Dad.
Obviously he didn't respond well. So he turns and he says, Yeah, but the now he truly puts down his fear about his father. And he expresses this openly to his father. Yeah, Betty
in need a half. I have a fear. We all have fears.
We all have fears fear of losing life, fear of sickness, fear of not having enough money at the end of the day to be able to provide for families we all have these fears. Over here the fear of Ibrahim Ali Salaam is what? Yeah, but the in the a half a year must suck it up. I'm really afraid
that some punishment will touch you. Over here. There's an author who wrote
an entire treaties of over 100 pages, explaining just the benefits of this idea
How like I'll allude to some of them. For example, we miss this other button. Right? It says, I am a sucker I've been
the Arabic language necessitated over here it should have been your ability in the UK awful. India must circle as AB.
To Arabic language necessitates that it shouldn't have been all my father, though punishment is going to get I'm afraid, the punishment of God will come to you. But over you, because if you're a disbeliever, it is the ultimate punishment you're going to get. But over here, Ibrahim Ali Salam, he masqueraded that with with lot with gentleness, and he said, all my father, in near half, I have a genuine fear. I am a sucker, either boom. Some punishment.
Not though a punishment. That's one. Punishment generally is from WHO? Mean alcohol. Mineral Jabbar
never from mineral ramen.
So the second word he uses is, the punishment is, but remember, even the punishment that if you somehow get that punishment, don't ever lose hope, oh, my father, because that punishment is from the Most Merciful.
Again, pegging mercy for his father, and the element of Mercy over the element of punishment. I am a second album, meaner nanny
for takuna, the third thing that they mentioned in that book, is that the adab is always because of something. You never like, the fact that the person is going to be punished, it really doesn't matter where the job is coming from.
If you're gonna get the job, like, are you getting a death penalty? What's the benefit of mentioning oh, by the way, your death penalty is at the hands off, John,
you die dying doesn't matter.
So over here, the third thing he says is, generally the other job is, whenever the other job comes, it's because you are being punished because of your crime, XY and Z. Rather, over here, he switches that. And he's like, listen, let's talk about the one being punished, the one who's punishing you, He is the Most Merciful and not talk about the sin that you have committed. And again, that book is you know, 100 pages of like, small detail for it like that about just this one idea. So anyhow, I am a second minute. Nanny, but Hakuna
leash che Bonnie? Worthy Yeah.
What is going to happen? If you choose this path? And the punishment comes, then you will become a friend of shaitan?
Do we want to be friends with Trayvon?
I didn't hear that. Do we want to be friends with JSON? No. Right? shaytaan is what?
Our, our enemy Allah Subhana Allah says, But does he do who I do? He is your open enemies. So take him as your enemy.
Sometimes we forget that he is our enemy. Okay, but not all the bad things we do in life comes from shaitan
sometimes it's our you know, if you eat that chocolate chip cookies, it's not from Shavon Your mom told you not to open that closet and you went in there and you had all of those fun candies. That's not from shaper. And this is something also for noir Neff. So we have two things we have to fight. It's our neffs our desires shaitan can play with that he can come and play with those desires. But sometimes you really want that brownie or that chocolate chip cookie or that ice cream right? And it's not cheap on Showtime. He's like, Hey, have ice cream. He doesn't do that.
Okay, then Allah subhanaw taala says, Now the response of father comes look at how much love and care Ibrahim Ali salaam showed to his father. Look at how the father response ba lieben.
Lee had the
EBO draw him
are you trying to convince me out of my gods or Ibrahim? Is that what you're trying to do?
Are you trying to seduce me to leave my gods or Hebrew into an early hottie? That's what you want. You want me to leave my gods?
Yeah, Ibrahim, not Yamane.
So the father is extreme harsh on the other end.
let Ilam 10 day and if you don't stop this behavior of your
vers la Arrojo mon knock, I will stone you to death alive.
Subhan Allah, look at the heart of that father.
What is rajim? Ie when you dig a small hole and you put the person all the way into the knee, right, so they can run. And then and then the punishment is called and people come and hit stones until the person dies.
So he's saying if you don't talk, if you don't stop this behavior of yours, like this is the first time he's having a conversation with his father. First macadam at first Mohammed as a first time he is bringing Dean up. And that's how the father responds.
The average woman
was George Clooney, Malia
and leave me. Let me be, don't don't don't try to bother me here right now. So imagine sometimes the response of our own fathers when their sons Allah subhanaw taala, or daughters, Allah grants them more hedaya
they become more practicing the new
how do we sometimes react to that it Debbie? muscleman MACBA? No,
don't become so much as such a cocky Billy had totally right? We see all of these statements, what what, why are these there that, you know, after you know all of those things, and now you're going to remind me of Dean, I know your past and present all of these things.
Why? Because sometimes we believe that our way and our age necessitates that we are right. And that is not the case.
Age is not age is an element of respect.
There are so many parents who are age 50 and 60, maybe in their 40s and 50s. But in their in terms of their knowledge of the in their 10 years old.
And there are so many young young people that are in their 20s. And in the knowledge of Dean, they may be in their 30s, or 40s.
And vice versa. You may have a parent who is maybe in his 40s and 50s. But their knowledge of Dean is six, you know, they're in 100 120 years, in terms of their knowledge, compared to a young person who's in their 20s. And he is still a baby, when it comes to the understanding of the deen where parents value come in is the experience of the world they bring in.
Whatever belief system you want to install in your child that was done at the age of three,
you can't change that now. He has to choose the path now.
You had the first three years to introduce them to that.
After that, that operating system is going to express itself. And we get sometimes very agitated when we believe that we have installed a certain type of operating system and then the child starts behaving very differently.
It's very unsettling as a parent, it's very unsettling as a father as a mother.
It may give us goosebumps
may cause tension in the households.
So over here, Ibrahim Ali said on his reaction is how can this child of mine have such an operating system? I never installed this operating system in him. How is he reacting like that? So this reaction of is is that all after all, after everything I've done for Ibrahim, this is how he talks.
IG and what was the work of Ibrahim Ali salaams father? I know we're not going to touch upon it but who remembers what did you do?
You got to speak louder.
He used to carve idols. That's what he used to do.
He used to carve out idols
so it's a very sacred position.
Within the society he is considered a religious man.
So it was very difficult for his father to swallow that
God Carla Ara Hebron Anton early hottie Ibrahim that in Lambton Dahai if you do not stop from this behavior of yours, LA or Juma nuk i will stone you to death
why journey Malia and leave me for a look for a period of time or leave me for extended period of time
how does he respond? Oh, how dare you talk to me that like that. I've been so nice to you.
I told you about the four times this is how you talk to me.
He's like badass
Salah um oh nice ache
Peace beyond to you my Father. May nothing come to you from me except peace
may nothing come to you from me except peace salaam on it.
And after that he hasn't forgotten his father with the connection of Allah. He says, Sir, a Stubblefield hola Cara being, I will definitely ask forgiveness from my Arab for you.
Imagine if your father just kicked you out of your house told you to leave me for extended period of time. If you come back to me and speak to me, I'll shoot you. And then in response of that, you say, oh, peace be upon to you. Thank you for all of that generosity of yours.
And I'm definitely going to remember you in my prayers. I G.
Right, this is like it's so there's a reason why Ibrahim Ali Salam is Ibrahim Ali Salam. None of us have like, ask ourselves, at least my son like if that happened. I there's definitely no Salam Alikum coming out of me. Right. It's difficult, like if that happened, and they kicked you out and Rajdhani Malia leave me and what?
And your responses that I'm on it.
So I still feel like a B and the words are still futile. Robbie is will for I will surely ask Allah for forgiveness right away.
Not I will think about asking forgiveness for you. So I still feel lucky to be
in who gonna be happy.
He has truly been very encompassing to me, my Rob. Again, reminding him his father about the generosity of his his Rob.
He could have said
if the behavior was this he could have said, well you know what?
Good for you dad because the punishment is coming to you.
Good for you.
2022 kids good for you. That's exactly what happens when you speed you get a ticket dad.
Right. So So federal law Kuraby in how can I be happy here?
