00:03:09 --> 00:03:12

are called lepidopteran bada bada let him free now.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:51

One of the things that we see in the Quran in the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada when Allah azza wa jal describes and mentions to us the stories of his Prophet sallahu wa Salatu Salam is done Allah azza wa jal often released to us the doors that they used to make the supplications that they used to invoke Allah azza wa jal with it is a common theme in the Quran. If you read the stories of the prophets of Allah, you will often come across the drama's of them Brd human salatu salam, it is one of those prophets of Allah and some of the donors that he made, that I want to focus on in today's autobio in the short time that we have before us, and that is the prophet of Allah Ibrahim Alayhi.

00:03:51 --> 00:04:31

Salatu was Salam, one of the greatest messengers of Allah that He sent to humankind, the holy love Allah azza wa jal, the story of Hajj, the hutch that people just completed and performed by Allah's permission just a few weeks ago. That story it is closely connected to this prophet and his family it is salatu salam, Allah azza wa jal, it was the end of Surah Ibrahim he sought a named after him. Allah subhanaw taala relates to the number of the hands that he makes, and according to a number of the scholars have received, these donors are made by him and he sent him after he constructed the karma after he raised his foundations by Allah's command, after he built the house of ALLAH SubhanA

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

wa Tada, which is the greatest symbol of the Torah of Allah upon this earth. He raised the foundation of the Kaaba completed a monumental task, an amazing act of worship, that the people from his time until your multi Yama, they will go on they will worship Allah azza wa jal at that place and in that house and faeces direction, in Salah, he builds any constructs the karma, and then he turns to Allah azza wa jal, he makes a series of dials and from those dials

00:05:00 --> 00:05:39

Is that he says, We've got a Ibrahim Maura John hurdle Bella Amina. And remember when Ibrahim Ali Suriname called upon his Lord and he said, Oh my Lord, make this land, the land of safety, the land of Makkah, the Haram of Mecca, the sanctuary of Makkah, it is a place of safety. And that is why people from across the world even today can travel they're in relative comfort and safety and they can worship Allah Subhana Allah Tada because it is from the greatest blessings of Allah azza wa jal, that the that you are able to live at a time and a place of safety, that you don't have to fear for your life. You don't have to fear for your risk. You don't have to feel for your family and your

00:05:39 --> 00:06:19

children, their well being and their safety, to be able to worship Allah azza wa jal in calmness in safety in peace and tranquility. It is from the greatest acts of the greatest blessings of Allah subhana wa Tada. And that is why many generations, many centuries after the time of Ibrahim Ali Salam, when Allah azza wa jal was speaking to the people of orangish in the Surah, in the Quran, that is named after the tribe of Quraysh. One of the things that Allah azza wa jal focuses upon and reminds them of, is this blessing that they had in the city of Mecca, under the Obama home endure, while men and women hope Allah gave to them provision and Allah azza wa jal gave to them safety.

00:06:19 --> 00:06:55

Because in Arabia, people used to fight wars, tribes would kill one another. There was civil strife but in Mecca in the Haram, no one team and should blame no one came and shut blood. No one came and caused any harm or strife because it is a land of safety that Allah azza wa jal has made a sanctuary. So me and you when we come to the masjid on the day of Juma and we pray, and we don't have to worry about our safety and our well being. We don't have to worry about our homes and our families that are back home. We don't have to worry about our property and wealth, you can come and you can enjoy and focus on the sector of worship that you're performing, and the Ramadan and the

00:06:55 --> 00:07:09

tarawih and the read and the Hajj and Umrah and all of those things that Allah azza wa jal has encouraged us to do and obligated upon us. It is from Allah's blessings. And so Allah azza wa jal answers is to offer Ibrahim Ali Salam.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:52

And then Ibrahim Ali Salam continues, and he says, what you normally were burning your number The last Nan and O Allah save me and my sons, my children from the worship of idols, Robina Hunan Linda cathedral, Mila NAS, from my Lord, they have led astray many of the people. It is amazing that after performing this amazing monumental act of worship, which is constructing the karma, Ibrahim Ali Salaam in the very center of Tawheed, upon the face of the earth, the dryer that he makes for himself and for his family for his children, for his sense, is that Allah azza wa jal protects them from idolatry. I don't think that there are many of us here who have ever made the DUA similar to

00:07:52 --> 00:08:32

this to our for ourselves, that Allah saves us from ship that Allah saves and saves us from idol worship, that Allah azza wa jal doesn't close our hearts to go astray and go towards the path of ship. He says Robin, who now the London the cathedral meanness, oh my lord, these idols are the cause of the ship of the vast majority of mankind, they will lead people astray. And perhaps Ibrahim already said I'm new, and Allah azza wa jal knows best that they would be from his descendants, those who would tend to idolatry, those who would worship idols in the very land, and by that very house of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, because who were the Quraysh, other than the descendants of Ibrahim

00:08:32 --> 00:09:12

and it's Mary RDMS salatu salam, one of the things that we take for granted today, in the UK, in the US and Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, India, across the world. One of the things that we take for granted is our iman, is our Toshi that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. If a prophet of Allah, the hadith of Allah, having performed one of the greatest acts of worship for the sake of Allah, isn't sure doesn't have the guarantees of freed for himself and his family, have shipped and idolatry than what guaranteed to me and you have, and you only have to look at the Quraysh at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Allah you will send them descendants of prophets in terms of lineage, there is no one

00:09:12 --> 00:09:52

here that is more noble in lineage than the lineage of the the nobility of the lineage of Polish. No one, know your family, you know, your father and your ancestry is better than the lineage of the people of Polish. No one lived in a land who lives in a land that is more blessing, more beloved to Allah, more honorable than the land of Makkah. And not only that, but the people of Quraysh were the custodians of the karma. They were the custodians of zamzam. They were the people who used to look after the pilgrims. They used to make a pilgrimage at that time, in the time of what age. But despite the land, despite where they lived, despite where they would sit and where they would spend

00:09:52 --> 00:09:59

time together in the shade of the Kaaba, despite the lineage and the ancestry. It didn't save them from the shock of Allah azza wa jal just in the middle

00:10:00 --> 00:10:13

On the caliber, there are 360 idols that they would worship besides Allah, let alone the idols that they had in their homes and on their persons and in their business places, and across the streets of Mecca and outside of Makkah, and across the Arabian Peninsula.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:54

Didn't give them a guarantee that Allah would save them from ship. And all the while those people were worshipping other than Allah, committing shirk, destroying the religion of Allah azza wa jal, that religion that their father Ibrahim, or Eastern have left him with. The claim is that were descendants of Ibrahim, they claim is were the people of Ibrahim, they claim is that were the children, the descendants of Ibrahim Ali salatu salam. And that is why Ibrahim Ali Salam says fermented Vianney in the Khomeini, the one who truly follows me, he is from me, because it's not about your ancestry. It's not about your lineage. It's not about your culture. The vast majority of

00:10:54 --> 00:11:31

us sitting here are probably born Muslim. We have Muslims that we were born with. Our parents and grandparents were Muslims. We have Muslim cultures and heritages that we identify with that despite this, it's not a guarantee that you will your children or your family or mine will be straight from the path of no heat. And so Allah azza wa jal gives us this lesson in the story of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, don't take your Eman for granted. Don't take your Tawheed for granted. Don't think that just because you were born a Muslim that you will die as a muslim. And especially in the time that we live in today, where you don't have to go very far and wide to see how quickly and how often

00:11:31 --> 00:12:10

people are leaving Islam. how quickly and how often people are becoming confused about their religion and straying from the Path of Allah subhana wa Tada. So Allah Siva Siva will families for my the worship, see was from ship because they are the cause of the misguidance of the majority of people fermented the irony find the whole mini because to truly follow someone or to be from someone is to follow what the left. This does today. All of us claim as Muslims that we love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we boast the NE consider it a source of pride away from the ummah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but

00:12:10 --> 00:12:45

you don't just get to make that claim and you don't just get that honorific title by making the claim. It is about how you follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam how you hold on to his teachings and his sunnah. That's what makes you from the prophets on Allah, wherever you will sell them. Those people of courage claimed to be from Ibrahim Ibrahim Ali Salam said if they follow me, they're from me, because that is what Allah azza wa jal will look at a normal piano, but just because you happen to be born or carry the name or carry the lineage or the family, the family surname of someone, Allah azza wa jal is looking towards your action, your Eman your hearts and your

00:12:45 --> 00:12:46


00:12:48 --> 00:12:51

Ibrahim Ali Salam continues and he makes a further dua

00:12:52 --> 00:13:34

on a banner image has come to mean Zulu yet Hebrew words in a way these are enduring the basical Muharram he says, Oh my Lord, I have settled some of my progeny. Some of my children in this barren Valley, this uncultivated value, because the Valley of Mecca is not a valley in which you get fruit or vegetation. It's not like Medina with this deep palm trees and fruit and the people are people of agriculture. The land of Mecca is a barren land. The land of Mecca has no cultivation that has no greenery, then a Mecca is full of hills and valleys. It's not a place where people would easily settle for it not for the fact that it was the house of Allah subhanaw taala that was there. Oh

00:13:34 --> 00:14:13

Allah, I have settled my children in this place in the beautiful Muharram by your secret house, because the prophets of Allah when it came to choosing something for themselves, for the children for their families, that is what their priority was. What is most pleasing to Allah subhana wa Tada and if it will safeguard myself and my family in terms of the Eman in terms of their religion, in terms of the dough heat of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And he means at the same time that I have to sacrifice some are much of the dunya then the prophets of Allah would make that sacrifice, and they would choose all is more pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala no one settles in Macau, no one's

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

settled in Mecca for any other reason. The very reason that today people millions of them every single year, go to the city of Mecca, not for any other reason, except for the fact that the House of Allah azza wa jal is there. There's nothing there. In terms of beauty of landscape, nothing there in terms of scenes or mountains or everything else that people love, when they go and travel. It is because of the house of Allah azza wa jal that is their Ibrahim Ali CERAM. Settled sacrificed left his son as a babies is married. In that same down Valley, left him their sacrifice for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. Why in the beat tickle Muharram because your secret House of Allah is there.

00:14:55 --> 00:14:59

And so the Muslim This is how they are in their lives, every single sacrifice that they

00:15:00 --> 00:15:41

make every decision that they should make should be based upon this principle. What is most pleasing to Allah subhana wa Tada. And if you have to sacrifice for the sake of Allah azza wa jal in order so that you and your children can worship Allah better than that is a sacrifice worth making. And that is why Ibrahim Ali Salam continues and says Rob Bernal up masala Oh Allah so that they can establish the salah. That's why I left them here. I didn't leave them in Mecca so they become rich or famous who have careers or become high flying people and individuals and they were but in the meaning and the sense of the deen of Allah azza wa jal that they served or bundle up Masada so that they can

00:15:41 --> 00:16:23

offer the Sunnah they could establish the surah and the worship of Allah azza wa jal and if you do that and you sacrifice for Allah, then Allah will give to you the dunya as well anyway for journalists either to Mina NASCI, to who either him what is the third Marathi hola hola Mishcon. Ibrahim says so make the hearts of some of the people yearn towards this place, the place of Mecca. So people came and they settled with a smile on her job. And the city of Mecca turns from a dwelling for two people into a village and a town in a city. And now there are millions from across the world every year, seek that very place. What is the third Marathi La La hornish Quran and provide for them

00:16:23 --> 00:17:00

a wala, from your goodness from your Thammarat from provision that they may be grateful. And the people of Makkah from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and before and after, have always had the risk of Allah azza wa jal come to them. It's not a place of vegetation, not a place of agriculture, not a place where they have fruit and food that is plentiful, but because the people come and they do commerce and they do trade as they make pilgrimage in the house until today, the economy of the city of Mecca thrives by the people who visit for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, the people who make Ramadan, the people who make Hajj how many industries today survive because of those

00:17:00 --> 00:17:38

people and Thermische flourish and thrive because of them. And that is the dua of Ibrahim Ali Sena. You sacrifice for Allah, you worship Allah, you uphold the Tauheed of Allah azza wa jal, and Allah will suffice you for everything else. Allah will give you the rest of the dunya Allah will make things easy for you. And Allah azza wa jal will not only do that, but he will do it in a way that is most beneficial for you. Rob Bella in Nicotiana, MoMA, Northfield women are not only for Oh Allah you know that which we make a PowerPoint and that which we hide. When Maya and Allah humans sheet and fill out the will every summer and nothing remains hidden from Allah in the heavens and earth,

00:17:38 --> 00:18:21

nothing in the heavens and the earth remains hidden from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And that is because shipped and Cofer. It has outward appearances and manifestations, but it also has inward and hidden manifestations and appearances. Much of ship and cover comes from the heart. Much of shitcan Cofer, its Places in the Heart it is hidden from eyes and receding from people in terms of apparent actions. So Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu Salam is making this point also, that the people who worship Allah azza wa jal have the Toreador of Allah subhanaw taala the people who rectify their hearts, rectify the heat of Allah azza wa jal, because you only have to look across the Muslim world today, in the

00:18:21 --> 00:19:00

very many Muslim communities that we have across the world, and you will see different acts of ship being performed by Muslims, this one making dua to other than Allah, and that would sacrificing to other than Allah, and that would make him the wife to other than the house of Allah azza wa jal, something that you find a customs symbol today. And that's because their heart hasn't been purified from shitcan KOFUN. They don't understand that the heat of Allah azza wa jal, and because there is a disconnect there in their heart between the meaning of the heat and the dangers of shock, it is not so difficult for them to fall into it. So Ibrahim Ali Salam, after performing this great act of

00:19:00 --> 00:19:37

worship of building the conga, mix these amazing dorms, they are the ones that I think are very important for us to reflect upon. Because even though he made them generation centuries ago, they apply just as much to me and you today in terms of the lessons and principles that they contain, and from the greatest of them is that we should never for a single moment believe that we are guaranteed Eman that it is something that we should take for granted. Or other there is the blessing of Allah azza wa jal that he gives to whomsoever He wills. And so the believer always asks Allah azza wa jal to continuously keep them steadfast upon this religion to give them a bat, then that is why when the

00:19:37 --> 00:19:59

wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked, What was one of the most common errors that you heard the Prophet make some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, she replied that he would often hear him say, young people collude with all the other Denecke or the tenor of the huts make my heart steadfast and firm upon your religion. BarakAllahu li Walakum Quran he was sunnah when if only we can be more female and it will take me upward

mid level from the de la salatu salam ala Rasulillah he were an early he was talking to a woman while I was sitting down with the screaming if you're a man back to him out he sent me continues and he makes a further dua after he pleases Allah azza wa jal for his blessings upon him as an individual with hamdulillah hinder the Wahhabi the annual kebari is Marilla is Huck or praises for Allah who grow granted to me bestowed upon me in my old age is married and his Huck his two sons are the human setup he makes the further driving says Robbie Jiang up masala tea woman, Blue Yeti, Robin and a couple dua. rubberduck Filthy what do they mean in a young man?

00:20:55 --> 00:21:36

He says, I will Allah make me from amongst those who established the salah, and my children offspring after me. I will accept this thrive for me. Oh Allah forgive me and my parents and all of the believers on the day that you hold people to account. This is an amazing dua because one of the greatest ways that you preserve your religion your Toshi do Eman and Allah azza wa jal is by the worship of Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's why these acts of worship that we perform the Sunnah the Juma prayer, fasting in Ramadan, Umrah, Hajj giving Zakah. These are acts of worship that aren't just there, just for things that should be ticked off as a checklist, not just there for the sake of

00:21:36 --> 00:22:12

it. They have great lessons and benefits and from the greatest and most benefit, the most greatest of those benefits is that they have to preserve your Eman. They have to preserve your religion. If you understand what those acts of worship are, and he performed them in the correct way, and your heart is connected with them. They are from the greatest means of gaining steadfastness in this religion. And so he says oh Allah make me and my children from the people of sada he had surah in the time of Ibrahim Ali salaam, and he wanted his children to be people have sada This is a drive that we often neglect for ourselves and our children. We don't often ask Allah azza wa jal that he

00:22:12 --> 00:22:48

makes us from the people of sunnah. And the people of Zika. And the people are fasting and the people of Tober and the people of Hajj and Umrah and the people of beautiful body they in and all of those acts of worship, but that is what the believers should do. Because those acts of worship are extremely difficult is what are not for the help of Allah Azza who didn't his aid. And so he makes these amazing to us towards the end of that Allah Azza dimensions towards the end of Surah Ibrahim these two hours, they contain amazing lessons and principles. Preserve your religion by worshipping Allah azza wa jal by understanding the heat of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada by making dua to Allah azza wa

00:22:48 --> 00:23:21

jal, and by never taking it for granted. And as Allah Azza did that he keeps us and our family steadfast upon this religion, that Allah subhanaw taala just as he has allowed us to live upon Islam, he allows us to die upon Eman and that He resurrects us with the people of Eman that Allah azza wa jal. Gank wants to impart to us and our families and our communities, the best of this world and the next that's Allah Azza did that he makes our fears easy that he shows his mercy and forgiveness upon us and that Allah subhanaw taala granted safety in our communities Subhanallah because you'll see phone was set on when Alan was standing in front of the law European.
