All right in sha Allah
inshallah you guys are done praying soon as you can move this way towards the brother side so they're going to open up the partition for the sisters in sha Allah
Hello AppFolio Smilla
if they open up then I'll see if they're packed and we it's just better if we move it just a little bit. We'll see. Let's see. If they asked me then I'll point to you from China
All right, Mr. Miller
are all the villa him in a shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he Wabag rubbish Surah Lisa three or certainly Emery what Hello of the Tamil listening of the Hakone Robina Zina alemannia Karim.
Inshallah, we're going back to our series of Quranic stories. And we had left off at the story of Ibrahim it said, and if you remember just to recall because it's been almost two or three weeks that we haven't touched on that story, as a recall for everyone. We talked about Ibrahim Ali Salaam. We talked about the nature and the environment in which he grew up. We talked about the political environment around Ibrahim Ali salaam at that time, and then we touched upon a story of Ibrahim Ali Salaam in reference to his dad.
So we talked about that conversation that he's giving Dawa to his father. Then we talked about him giving Dawa to his nation, about the whole story of idols. And you know, if either home cubby Rome had this, you know, older idol, elder idol, he is the responsible one. He is the one that has done it. So we talked about Ibrahim Ali salaam, first giving Dawa to his family.
Then he gave it he Ibrahim Ali said I'm giving Dawa to his immediate city and the people in the locality in the community.
And then he realizes that if if the
local people in the family they are not accepting then I'm going to try a political change. I'm going to attempt a political change. And if we attempt a political change
And if he succeeds, then there is hope. But then he has the entire conversation. I'm Tara Isla de hija Ibrahim, I do not look at the one that argued with Abraham either you said, and we talked about that entire story.
So, these are the three Amara,
or three stages, in which Ibrahim Ali Salam, he attempted his best to pass on the message.
Keeping in mind that he alone was the only believer on the face of this earth. Other than his wife and Luth, Ali salaam,
Ghana, oh, mutton, and it has also mentioned that when he was in OMA, when he was entirety, his entire Ibrahim Ali salaam, himself, he was the OMA, ie some of the scholars have they have said that if you were to put the emaan off the entire people of the world if they were to be Muslims, and if you were to wait, the Imam of Ibrahim Ali Salam, ala Raja Iman, Ibrahim Ibrahim Ali Salam would have been a lot more his weight of Eman would be a lot more than that. Likewise, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us about who
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han, right? That if you were to take the Iman of Abu Bakr
and if you were to put on the other scale Omar, Ruth man i Li Hesson Hussein, Abu Huraira, Aisha all Abdullah ibn Omar Abdullah ibn Abbas Abdullah bin Mr. Booth, all of these great scholars if you were to put them on the other side and the entire ummah of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Eli Yomi Akiyama until the Day of Judgment, la Raja Iman who Ababa the Eman of Abu Bakr would be a lot more about the hola Juan.
So when that particular environment he he struggled, but there was no success I eat results were nil.
At that point,
he decides that it is time for me to leave the land. So at this point, Ibrahim Ali salaam he decides to leave from where he was in Bible
in neither Hebron Isla or bisa Dean, he decided that he's going to leave to wear follow stain, he's going to go to follow stain with his wife Sarah, or in some of the tafsir books it has mentioned, sa
ay E if you were to look at her, you would be happy. Sarla mean suddenly a sort of rule. But the predominant is SATA, and loot it sedan and loot Ali Salaam has mentioned that either he was even harder to IE he was his cousin. Right? Or he was the brother of solder. There are two things mentioned. Can we close the door at the back please if it's possible, it's causing
it reminded me of a story right now of that incident, the distractions right? I said the door every all of you look at the back. It's really interesting. It reminded me of a story of Dottie Abner McCullough. He was sitting there. And, you know, he was studying with his teacher.
And very famous story he was studying with who was he studying with? Who knows?
Bucky McCullough. He was studying with
Muhammad. So he was studying there. And people said, Danny, the entire city shook. And they said, feel feel feel there's an elephant. There's an elephant elephant. So every student that was with him they left
because they've never heard they've read. They've read Olam. Tharaka. If Allah Buddha was having field, but they don't know what this field is, they need to look at this field today. You can Google it. So everyone left except Berkeley, ignem, Auckland.
So he said, Why are you not going? He said, I didn't travel from all this way.
And the suffer that I did, to learn knowledge, I didn't travel so I can go look at a field. I traveled so I came to learn from you. And since everyone has gone let's learn, this is the opportunity. Right? So even at the time of
the prison when I met, even humble was in prison. This was the one student he always taught. So as he would be taken from one place to another, he would always find him and then when they had put a complete ban on him that you could not teach Bucky Bucky if Norma Khaled would always walk
with him, and you know, he would pretend to be a beggar and he would receive all the Hadith from Imam adamant. Right. So don't look at the door.
The moral of the story. Anyhow. So what happened was at this point, he says he's going to do hijra, and he says, In neither Hebron in our be sateen, I am headed towards my Rob, He will guide me. And this brings us to a very important point
which is that many of us we migrated or our parents migrated and we came to these lands.
And in these lands, we can live.
And the only condition if you were to look at the majority of the Allama, and their permissibility, the only condition we have to live in these lands, because these are not the lens of Muslims. The condition we have is as long as you can practice your faith.
But more importantly, you have to be either involved in spreading the faith.
Or you're giving active Dawa or you have to be involved in some form of passive Dawa considerable amount of your effort is going in developing the community and keeping the community alive and Eman alive. If at some point, a person believes
that their children and their children's children and their children's children will not be on Islam,
then it becomes a wajib at that time on them that they have to make that decision and leave. But if they are involved in the Dawa activities and their children are not getting Hidayah, Allah has tested them with that, then that's a different story. You're I mean, you're putting in the effort, you're not getting the result. But what is not acceptable is that we don't put in the effort. And we expect the result. Right. And it's a majority opinion of the scholars and again, you know, so in these lands, we have to be very careful about it. That if we're here, our our your children should know.
Friday night, Sunday morning, Sunday night, whichever night that you are, it's yes, Joomla is there but we are part where community and we come to the masjid. They have to see you bringing them at this age into the Masjid. So that when they become old and they find their own paths, they will have memories of these and eventually they would come back to these centers in sha Allah. And that's why these nights are very important to protect the next generation to instill in them good memories of ice cream. Well, Les, they're going to remember this when they grow up. They're going to remember that we used to go to Friday and the only thing they're going to remember is no lectures I gave no
food that we tried to please them the only thing they will remember is the long lines of ice cream. That's all they're going to remember.
So Abraham it said, um, he says, In neither he will need our visa Dean. So Allah accepted and gave him the permission and he went. The second thing that happened in this Mahala of his migration, is he made a dua to Allah. Syrah
or the Allahu anha. She had become very old.
She was old, and she did not have she couldn't have babies. So at that time,
Ibrahim Ali Salam had got a second wife. Now the story of how he got second got a second wife. There are two different narrations about it but point being he married Hotjar Radi Allahu Allah, and Allah granted him a child through Hajah
Okay, who was the child?
Ismail Ali Salam, amazing. Ismail Ali Salam was the first son. So he made a dua to Allah He said Robbie herbally Muna Saudi,
or Allah grant me a child from the pious ones Mina Salim Baba Sharona Hoovy Hola, Amin Helene. So we gave him a glad tiding that you're going to have a son that is going to be Helen forbearance. Helen. Oh,
the state of how Luma
the Arab they usually describe the state when a baby is in the lap of the mother. And he is suckling the breast of the Mother, the state of tranquility that you find on that child when he's in that state.
Absolutely free of all worries of his life. That stage is called that state is called hill
right? So that level of forbearance that doesn't matter what happens around you and may Allah grant us that it's a very important quality to have that you do not allow the events around you affect you.
You let that come in.
never affect you. you process it. You work through it but it never affects you.
And I'll be having the rub be heavily mean asylee when bye bye shadow now hula hula I'm in Helene. And we are already talked about this fella Marbella, Maria. Huzzah. That was the first story we started because of the ledger, the whole story of the hand stuff we've covered that we're going to skip these eyes. Then he made another dua for makan Allah subhanaw taala says well, Bashar now who will be is Hakka Nabi Amina Salim. This is a very interesting story. So now Sarah,
she she's old
Ibrahim Ali Salam has Ismail Ali Salam, he's still a baby. And Allah gives him a glad tidings to his wife salah and the entire scene is so beautiful. Allah subhanaw taala says wala Khadija at Rusu Luna, Isla Rasul Luna Ibrahim, our messengers who are these messengers.
They were prophets are angels, angels. So Allah subhanaw taala says that our angels were the cause of
our angels. They came Ibrahim Al boo Shah, they came to Ibrahim Ali Salam with the glad tiding I think there was a typo in the ayah over here, who knows this I would like us to do so Luna Isla Ibrahim Saya, right? There's a typo in the Quran here. And you
can't trust the Quran.
The digital one I'm like where's the INA? Where's like, like my brain is crashing here. Well, of course yeah. Toluna Illa Ibrahim Bill Bouchard, they came to Ibrahim Ali salaam with the GLAAD tightening
in the Arabic language. See everything is very specific.
What is the root word of Bushra?
Who said that? You said it? Who said it? What is it?
Mushara what is Bashar in Arabic?
Bashar Yes, sure. Like, he's like pointing to himself. This is Bashar right here. Can't you see a bunch of um right here. Bashar means skin.
Bush Shah is a type of a glad tiding that when somebody gives you that good news, the effect of that good news. It can be seen on your skin
booster ah it's a glad tiding that oh my god when you sometimes see somebody's like mashallah cow. Oh, why are you so happy? You know, we won the volleyball championship. You don't need to ask around, look around the faces anybody that has that level of Bashara Bucha you know that they're the winners of volleyball. And you look at the ones who lost they're also here, right? You will not find that Bucha are there. Right, so Bushra so they came with this guy Chad and Carlos Salama, they said Salam, even the angels when they enter they say salam orlu ceramah kala Suleiman from Isla visa and Jarabe originally in Hadith, he did not wait until that he went and he brought region which has a
calf. Honey is the type of cooking I eat it's generally you dig a hole into the ground deep enough and you let the fire burn for 234 hours until the wood logs they turn into Amber.
And when they have turned into Amber then you bring any type of local leaf and stuff that you can use as a covering and you cover those embers and you put the meat on it. And then you cover it with some form of a lid whether a Mud Lake or clay lid or a metal metal lid and you leave the meat in it. There's no fire it cooks through residual fire that that fire that's radiant in the earth that fire cooks the meat. I still want to have it right now.
Where's our Saudi brother he was supposed to make us a honeypot back in the backyard for us. We need to hold if he's if anybody knows where he is just catch him he's been trying to escape the mustard ever since he made that promise we need to get a hold of him. So that type of meat is called honeys so I want you to understand he went slaughtered a cow they did not have fridge oh honey can you take out something from the freezer there you know we need what do you got there? Yeah, let's take out some chuck roast for him. No fresh meat slaughtered, skinned
and then cooked placed in that oven or in the in the earth brought while he's still having conversations with him.
Fella Mara idea homelessness.
He saw their hands are not reaching to this food. Why are you not eating Nikita home?
For oh just oh just I mean Halifa he was a bit scared and he said, huh that's very strange is odd. They're not eating all latter half in auto Sina either call me loot. Don't be scared. We have been indeed sent to Pomi loot the nation of loot addicts.
I II what? Sent as Glad Tidings to loot
the punishment to loot Alex and I will talk about loot and Salem and the entire story when we get to the story of loot ally Salem, Violet, no and then next part one Murata two who are EMA tune.
The wife of Ibrahim Ali salaam Zara she was standing there and listening to the conversation.
She was there by Emma tune, which means what she was in the end she was serving I eat she was either serving. He brought the food Vijaya the agent and he is the one who served but she was there for either. Do you need more? Can I get you more she was trying to host she was being a host over there. I imagine she was standing for blanket.
She started smiling. Why did she smile? Because you don't know that the purpose of her smile? Allah tells you about her smile first for the haircut
Why would she smile
Bye but the gliding has not been given it says fell by cuts so she smiled further Sharona who and asked her her smiling, we gave her the glad tidings of
all my loot. She was fed up with the crimes of omy loot.
And he was her brother, technically, in the in the majority opinion. So if he was the brother, she was filled with pain of his brother being unabIe having to deal with those type of people. So when they said man work, he's like hamdulillah Allah finally sent someone for Allah He got she was happy about that fact that Allah is taking care of them.
The second meaning of Allah haga and this is the beauty of Arabic language.
The second meaning is that she menstruated
for a bike that in the Arabic language is also used to describe the state of a woman to men straight ie when she meant straight at that point. Everybody around is happy that she has become a mature woman. And she's entered adulthood. For Allah He got she meant straighted ie she was shocked because she was in menopause. She was not supposed to have menstruation at that age, she can't even have children felt like he got as soon as that happened. Phurba Sharona who will hold on so we gave her the glad tiding but shall not who be is how we gave her the glad tidings of the name is how when you want to eat healthy food, and also the glad tidings that you will also have another from his heart
another child Yaqoob. By that
and still after that menstruation, she still doesn't believe because that's one element. But to be able to conceive is another problem.
So she says, Oh, let's try Elijah wore on to me. I really do. Wanna I Jews?
I am a woman that has passed the age of conception. I can conceive. Am I going to give birth? Well, Anna Jules waha. Alicia and my husband, barely my husband he's also passed that stage two
in Mahadasha Unigene it's a very strange matter what are you telling me?
All the angels said that's very beautiful. There were multiple angels there.
When Allah says God who?
How many angels spoke
then why is it called Why is it if one angel spoke then why is called Why is it Gemma? Why is it plural?
I know two or more Yes. Masala. Thanks for the grammar but if there were 10 all 10 spoke or one spoke
your Pokemon cards can wait.
How many said all of them said or one said.
One. So when the Imam is leading prayer who's who's reciting?
One everybody's praying. Right? So God who one angel spoke represent
same thing the rest of them as if they're all also saying the same thing. Digest being I mean, a Medela Are you being estranged you feel an estrangement from the matters of Allah from the decree of Allah mean I'm relying Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh Who are they gonna handle bait? Allah sends his Rama and his blessings on you or people of the house in the WHO Hamid Majeed. He is the one who is the most praised and Most High Majeed Magetta you Maji do tell him and he is the most exalted
and then in a few other verses Allah subhanaw taala says for Farah Farah
for our Kabbalah team rod in other it mentions for oh just I mean homekeeper pallulah Taka Wabasha rubeola mean ID him they gave him a glad tiding that is how bad he said um is going to be a very knowledgeable Nabhi
Can I have
some of the volunteer adults to be with these kids Please
That's my son so you know, I can't be with him.
Then for our Kabbalah team Raja to who facade right?
First look towards you haha, she said, Oh my god. Am I gonna give birth and Allah even described her like when you give a glad tiding she could not take that
walk all it has us on our team. This man he is at us and our team he can't give birth like he's not he's not able to. Or Luca Dalek. This is the decree of Allah Allah book. Your Rob have said in a row who will Hakeem on Helene Hakimullah Eileen, this is how the degree of Allah is and it is going to take place because he is the most wise and the most knowledgeable.
Then this is one story of what happened with Musa Ibrahim Ali Salam in that realm. Then another thing that happened
Saira now started feeling that
I can't live with hudgell
as it's a theatre book said that they wanted some space.
And at that point, Ibrahim Ali Salam,
he gets a command from Allah subhanaw taala. Take hija and ismail and take them to the valley.
Imagine first he leaves the land. He comes to philosophy. I mean, now he's everything it has mentioned in that I've seen books that he had fruition. He had money, he had wealth, everything was going well for him. And then Allah subhanaw taala test him again. Well, that's great. But now you're going to take your son
and you're going to go
Where are you going to go? You're going to take them to Makkah as he is there. The entire scene we've already described in the past when we know when we were near Hajj and we talked about it, right he comes he drops she Hi John, Eileen said, she looks at Ibrahim Ali Salam. He says Allah Who America did Allah subhanaw taala commend you for this. He just simply nods and then she says Then Allah is not going to waste us and the entire story of Georgia home and he smiled and he said I'm being born and establishing in Makkah as Ibrahim Ali salaam was leaving he says what he says Robin in the US gun to me. Jewelry at eBay in lady the law ease ease over I have, oh Allah in the
askubuntu I have established I have given my children in the US countrymen Zuri it from my progeny, my children I have established them. I have made them find sukoon the word scan two, and a scan. In Arabic language means housing, housing as a place where you find sukoon and that's one thing that I have established them so they can find tranquility and they can find a place of living. BYD in the quality of this valley is not that it is lush green like Georgia.
The quality of this valley is that it has no vegetation. Layer EVs are in.
There is no vegetation. There in bed at Gulmohar rum.
The only quality is it's next to
the house. Haram ie
GABA. It is next to Al Beighton Muharram the sanctified house which is GABA.
Why am I doing this? Oh Allah. Rob banally europei Masada I'm only doing this Oh Allah so they they establish prayer in that land. If you've ever been to Hajj and those of you that recently came back from Hajj, three 3.5 million people. You will never have shortage of two things.
in that place for 3 million people, you'll never have shortage of fruit and water.
Okay, IG you will never have shortage of these two things. Fragile F E that Amina Nancy tahu Elaine him and he made the DUA O Allah, we I want the hearts of the people to gravitate towards them gravitate towards GABAA
what happens every single one of us?
Literally I was with. I was with three pastors three days ago, I was having lunch with them and trying to see if we can do some interfaith work. And when I told them about garba the first thing the guy says, Is your way I can go and check this out. And I was like, Look Subhanallah This is a guy who's visiting a church. And his first like the minute I described to him, Ishmael and this and that he's like, is there a way I can go check this out?
This is the dua feabhra in Malaysia. Oh Allah of either. Tamina nurse the hearts of the people let them gravitate towards them. What is Zuko Home Minister Murad and give them food from the fruits
that are off Ibrahim Ali Salam, even when my dad or your dad they went in those days in the 60s and the seven anybody went to Makkah in the 70s here
or in the 80s if you went to you went in 80s Did you find fruits there in the 80s he found fruits there.
Where was the logistics which at which airplane where were they coming from?
It was the dua of Ibrahim it said
I grew up a big portion of my life in Makkah, you could go there and find any type of fruit anytime any any place. I still have vivid memories of entering Kaaba and if you remember this a jihad road as you're going in those before the hotels came they used to be these markets. They used to be these peoples with these cards and they would have fruits of all type there
was Zucco Minister Marathi why all of this give them food from fruits. Lila home, yesh Quran. So they are going to be thankful perhaps they will be thankful to me.
So this is his fourth stage where he now goes and establishes, and then he comes back.
And then we'll talk about the GABA and the establishment of GABA and everything in Sharla in detail, we'll talk about that in much more detail inshallah together in the next session, and that would be probably the end of the story of Ibrahim Ali Salam and then oh, by the way, next week is Imam Tom not not this session in I'm Tom is coming. And I told him so you want to stick with the theme of Quranic stories. So he is going to do a session on Musa alayhis salam model's fatherhood, this for all the fathers.
So we almost never talk about Musa they said arms, fatherhood capability. So he talks about that, and then we'll we'll learn all of that. Then Allah subhanaw taala. In this stage, he gives us another example of Ibrahim Ali Salam. And then another example is
that in this marhaba, in this stage of Ibraheem Alehissalaam, he established himself in terms of some of the etiquettes of living and the facade of fitrah. The innate disposition, ie if all of us were to be dropped in a jungle without any education, and no convulse, you know, convolution of our innate disposition or fitrah, then we would figure these 10 things out. These are called facade of fitrah. Half of them have to do with five of them have to do with the head and the other five have to do with our bodies.
It has mentioned that the ones that have to do with the head is what who can tell me cutting off your mustache for men. Show Adam growing the beard Seawalk
toothbrush, as you know, my history teacher used to say if you go back
In history, people stunk.
Okay, there was stench. And then you had L C, l. R E those, you know those floss picks. That's not something Ibrahim Ali said I was the first one to invent floss picking. Okay, you should get honorariums for that. Right. And then the next one in terms of our body, washing our body after relationships with our spouses,
using water to clean, clean ourselves. Many of the people have forgotten this in this in these lands.
As a really interesting thing, when a lot of the people went to Qatar,
Amazon, they went to Qatar, and they did not have like, you know, paper towels, so they had to use those hand showers. Amazon had a spike of sales for hand showers, when people came back from Qatar, because once you get used to water, you're like, man, what's wrong with you people? Right, so, so cleaning with water, cutting your nails,
removing unnecessary pubic hair from the body, and circumcision. These are the fitrah that Ibrahim Ali Salam established, and he was the first one to do these things. And it is mentioned in some of in one of the tough series, that it mentions that why the hilum Tuncer Ilario mill Tiama these things will never ever end until the Day of Judgment, these fitrah will remain within us until the day of judgment. And in this particular murder, Mahala He also established Salah and we know a little bit about that Salah in the Surah where by the US law Herman does that.
Was that Rosner? Rugby he for Salah Balto is your own hieratic dunya will ask you not to call in Nevada Allah feel so fulfilled hula Sufi, Ibrahim our Musa so occurred after Herman Tezuka dilemma they said is who? Ibrahim alayhi salam, while that caught us Mara beaded zikr of Allah for Salah and he prayed and this information of vicar and praying and dusky can be found
in the sort of in the in the scripts and scrolls off musante Ibrahim Ali Salam May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to connect inshallah

And it isn't a very, it's going to be a unique experience for them. Number two, second is the Imam Tom coming so he's gonna be here for Juma. He's going to be here for the family Friday night.
