Salam ala rasulillah while AlLahi wa sahbihi wa sallam a My bad.
We continue in the sha Allah with the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam,
after we've seen last time,
the argument and the discussions that Rahim would have with his people, inviting them to hate and the worship of Allah zildjian alone and denouncing the worship of idols. So we've seen the arguments he had with them. We've seen how he presented all of this to his father, and what happens happened with them and what will happen with them on the Day of Judgment. We've seen him presenting Islam to a king and arguing with him and winning that argument with that King claimed that he too, can do as a law surgeon does. Then Ibrahim alayhis salam migrates
with a permission or either the command of Allah azzawajal migrates to the sacred land to the blessed land to the land of a sham.
And we also have seen there as he heads to Egypt, with his wife, Sarah,
and they are the encounter King and we've seen the story and what happens with them and that King gives Sara hajer.
Now we continue with the story. And embedded in the story of Ibrahim alayhis salaam. We'll be also talking about two other prophets
ismat smile on his heart and He Mr. Lamb sits in the story itself as you're talking about Ibrahim, you're going to have to talk about his smile and you will have to talk about his hakala Hema Salah.
So, Ibrahim alayhis salam asked Allah azza wa jal for righteous progeny or be heavily mean or solid.
And for a long, long time, he didn't have it
a long, long time.
How are we doing? Why do we know this? Because he says alayhis salam in the haoran Alhamdulillah he lives he will have an E Ll keyboard is Milo is how he praises Allah azzawajal Alhamdulillah who had given me a smile and his heart, when I will keyboard in old age, and after a very long time.
So Ibrahim alayhis salam has a son with hydro first.
And he takes her job
all the way from a sham. And they travel to Arabia to Mecca. And iburst tells us the story, if not best tells us the beginning of that story. And then what happens to this man La Silla all the way to the building of the Kaaba. So he says, radi Allahu Allahu
Allah muttahida Nisa ominto min kibali omis. Maya smilies is the first of woman to take or to wear the mentor. The mentor, this was the month of aysa wrap o'clock clothing at you wrapped around your waist. And it also could have a tail that goes all the way from the back all the way to the ground. So he says that the first one to take that to where that was almost male who is harder. He says the two of us Allah, Allah, Sarah says that she will cover her tracks, and Sarah will not know where she's going. So there's hear implicit that there is some tension. There is some tension, but he doesn't discuss what it is. And another Hadith or another version of it, it says what kind of a you
know, human McCann, he says, There is something happened, but he doesn't tell us what happened. So in the Bible, it says that there was some jealousy from Santa. And it's a possibility. It's a possibility. Nevertheless, right? It was the commands of Allah azza wa jal, that they would move. Because Allah had something great for hydrocone smile, they would not be able to achieve that greatness if they stayed in that place. So even if there was some jealousy, and because of it, they had to be separated. And if there was some jealousy, it can be understood. First of all, Sara will eat it for a son for a very, very long time. And now she sees that her husband who now has hajer she
has a son, and she doesn't. So she's after all, even if she is righteous and she is righteous. She's after all what? Human. So here in one of the lessons here I want you in sha Allah to keep in mind and it's not one of the not one of the conditions of righteousness of duck wha that a person will be complete and full and perfect. A person can be righteous they can have Taqwa they can be beloved by Allah as origin, but they can still be human. They can
still have some flaws in them. So keep that in mind in sha Allah as you assess people so saw a very righteous woman and we've seen evidence of her righteousness in the last lecture when she may do it to Allah. Allah immediately accepted her daughter plus she's married to who?
Brahim? Of course, at a center of course she's she's righteous. But anyway, Allah azza wa jal wanted her to be somewhere else. So Ibrahim takes her job.
And with her his his smile, and his smile is still nursing. Allah His Salama, he's an infant that is still nursing, and they travel. And I want you here to imagine, you know, one of the things for instance, you know, you have to understand that we're really not giving these stories, justice. Because here we are abbreviating their story in an hour. like someone's life, but here we say they traveled from Shamp to Mecca, you think is easy, right? How many months did it take? And probably it's on foot and she has a child.
And they're traveling and they're traveling. So it's something they what they traveled. We said this in a minute, but that took them couple of months for that to happen. And she's holding the child and she does not know where they're going. Who knows if Rahim
Allah has told him where but she doesn't know where they're going. So they travel and travel and travel and travel until they arrive. The valley, the valley where Mecca is where the cabin is going to be. But there is nothing there. No human being there are no animals. There's just only one tree right sitting right there where the cab is going to be right there. That's the only thing that is there, surrounded by mountains, barren land, barren land. So he goes and she's walking with Him. He goes, he puts her there right now right next to the tree, he puts the child right there next to the tree. He gives them a container of water, and a bag of dates. And then he turns his back and walks
away. He doesn't say anything.
And think about it was this easy for him.
So panel, right, this is his only son is how comes later. This is his only son. And he had asked a lot as well for it for a very long time until it's happened. And now he has seen him. And he's an infant. And he says leave him there. And he's supposed to leave him and turn his back and walk away. So when we said last time that Allah tested Ibrahim with commands, and he fulfilled them, you begin to understand, see with these commands, this is was one of them, leave your child and leave your wife and head back this walk. Leave them alone, there's nobody so harder. She sees him walking away. She says Ibrahim, who are you leaving us to? There are no people here there is nothing to eat.
There's nothing Who are you leaving us to? And he does not answer giving her her back? He does not answer does not say anything.
Then she asks
Allah who Mr. Raka be here that did Allah command you to do this? He says yes, that's the only thing he says. He says yes. Then she says for in the hulan yuliana he says Allah will not abandon us. He's gonna leave now. That's it, and she is supposed to sit there. So she sits there. Now we brought him under his ceram right. Of course he he feels he feels for it. So but he can't, he can't he can't retreat, he can cheat he cannot. So he goes and he goes to a place where they know they cannot see him.
And then he turns that he faces that location, which is going to be the secret spot where the camera is going to be. And he says Rob banner India is going to mean to Rio de bois de Deezer in India it can Muharram or a banner up masala he says here Allah, I made some of my descendants inhabit a valley that is barren.
be sad these are next to your sacred house robina your Allah says that they will establish the Salah.
I want you to see Subhana Allah how every movement they had was for Allah has origin as possible that can be achieved but we need to push ourselves to do it. So he went all this way you're up so that they will establish the salah I'm planting their the seeds of something great because you commanded it Why do you have chemo Salah? Then he prays for them for Jaffe that Amina nurse et de la him, bring the hearts of some people to them. What is the what is the homina thammarat and provide for them la la mia Sharon so that they may Thank you Allah. So he says bring the hearts of some people to them. That's why there are some of the older men have said anyone who goes to Mecca and
comes back will have some of his heart still attached to Mecca because you'd always longed for it. And that is the desire of Abraham and his Salaam bring the hearts of some people to them. Make them love
It make him love them. That location. So you had your now I want you to just just just to think about it and to imagine it. I know you know this story, but do we know the story? So she sits and she's nursing the child and she has water. And she has dates. We don't know how long this last but they could not have lasted for long. Now she's hungry. And if she does not, she's hungry, and she's not drinking, who's also hungry. The child there is no milk. Now she can maybe tough it out a little bit. And you know, we'll stand it more, but he cannot. So she starts crying and crying and his cries louder and louder. Then he starts you know, twisting and hit hitting the ground with his hand. He's
hungry. And then he starts making death sounds. The cries that are coming out of him are deep they are death sounds, meaning that boy, if you leave him a little longer, he's dying. He's dead. So hard. You couldn't just stay there. She had to go and do something. And she didn't want to see him like that. She says that only way. Nobody says that. She did not want to see him like that. So what does she do? Where does she go?
She goes to all suffer, climb star suffer, that's the mountain climbs to suffer. Perhaps she will see something. She looks right. She looks left she hears hear she she doesn't see anything. She doesn't hear anything. Then she comes down the mountain and when she's in the valley, she runs as fast as she can. She holds her clothes and she runs as fast as she can. That's why if you go between a sofa and Mandala you run in between them because she ran Also, while the low Anna. She runs as fast as she can to unmoral climbs to a lower and then she looks left, right. listens nothing still is very quiet. Except for the child that is crying but nothing else. Then she comes down, runs as
fast as fast as she can still suffer climbs again, nothing comes down. So she's going back and forth. Because that's the only thing that she can do. There's nothing else that you can do. When she reads the seventh round when she's on and moreover, she hears something.
And she said to Smith to incarnate into our earth, He says I'm listening. If you bring in relief, she doesn't know what is this sound? I'm listening to you. If you bring relief to us. Then she looks at where the child is. And she finds who she is. And
she finds you very analogous to them. She probably has either seen him before, or like planted in her heart that this is debris around his salon. He struck the ground with his heel. Right where is Matt? It was good summer it was just on top of Zamzam. It struck that ground with his heel and dumps him started gushing right above ground. She rushed to him all the allow on her and she started to fill her container and trying to collect as much water as she can with her hand. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he said Rahim Allah homos Mati may Allah be Have mercy on her. If she was not hasty at trying to collect all the water like that. Zamzam would have been a spring
rather than a well. So Zamzam is a well, alright, you need to go down and bring out the water issues if he had left it and not rushed and try to collect as much of it as possible. He says Simpson would have been a spring. But the and this is what Allah xojo wanted for it to happen.
Then jabril de salam, he said, he said, Let half of Goya for in Allaha la yo yo Allah. He says, Don't be afraid of being abandoned because Allah does not abandon his people.
And this child will build with his father, God's sacred house that's going to be here.
So Subhana Allah, just look at that statement. God does not abandon his people.
your your aim should be to be from Allah, Allah. The people of Allah as urgent because if you are the people of Allah,
Allah will not abandon you.
Yes, a time is gonna be tough like it was for her. But they never lost faith. And they never doubted Allah xojo so Allah azza wa jal could test you at time but he will never abandon you. If you are the people of Allah azza wa jal
she's there with the water.
The tribe of Judah home, my there's a tribe and our tribe of Judah home was passing by.
And they saw a bird circling
and they say, what is a bird circling here? These birds only circle if there is water around, send somebody to inquire. They send someone to inquire he says there's water. So all of them go and they meet her and her son and they say can we settle here in this place?
She says, Yes, you can. But you have no right to the water, meaning we have rights to the water. And we can dispense it the way we think. But you have no rights to the water, you cannot have claim to it. They said yes.
And you said Pamela, she'd like to have company she'd like to have people there.
And so panelo It is surprising as I was reading this story is that, you know, if you if you think about it, water in the desert is like gold is more precious than gold. And you just find there for that tribe, just to show you Subhana Allah, the dignity that some people had, just find a woman there, and only her infant, and she says, this water of mine is mine, and you agree, and you say yes, rather than go ahead and kill her or rather than gold and expel her and say, No, this is ours. They say we agree that this water is yours, and we're gonna stay there, and we'll accept your conditions. They agreed to it. And that's nobility. SubhanAllah that's nobility.
So he stays and they are they give the provide company and it's made at a salon grows up. Now Ibis continues the story but before I continue with the story of of no Abbess, we of course have the story that you will know very well.
When Allah azza wa jal commands Ibrahim to slaughter his son. So that's an intervening story between before what Abbess is going to continue our story with when Allah azza wa jal tells her Bishop now hope you hold him in Halloween. We gave him the good news of a lamb, his son, that is Helene patient, forgiving kind. He doesn't name him. But he says fella Marbella, Rama who say when that boy was old enough to walk right beside him, Bella outside, Corleone in the documentary any as bahagia funboard metadata, he says, Oh son, he presented to this son, Allah's revelation to him. I saw in the dream that I am killing you, I'm slaughtering you. So see what you see what you think about
color? abati if I met Omar, he says, Oh, my father, do what you are commanded insha Allah, you will find me to be patient.
is this is my email or is hoc?
Is my you know, how do we know it's Mary. Now, of course, for the people of the book, they think it's, it's hard. But even Subhanallah even you know, within the books or in the book, and then the verses that they have, it says right there, that Allah commanded Ibrahim, go and sacrifice your only son, Isaac.
They say it's clear, he can clearly see that that word Isaac is added. And it does not make sense. Because go and slaughter your only son who is you're always possible for it to be his only son, his happiness may is made. You could not have his heart, and yet at the same time, have a smile and call is happier on the sun. You have another son, where it only makes sense if it's my aim, but they added the word his heart there because they wanted that honor to them. Because it's hot as their father. But it's not we shouldn't play favorites. These are facts. If it's hot as hell, it's not going to change history because it suits us. So who is it? It's this man? And he's you know,
in addition to the fact that Allah azza wa jal after he tells his story, Allah as the judge says, after the story finishes of the story of the sacrifice and what Allah does, then Allah says, Well, this showrunner who is haka NaVi Amina Salim, then we gave him the good news of his heart, also a prophet from among the righteous. So after the story ends, Allah talks about his heart, so it's not as hot. It's my.
So Allah azza wa jal shows Ibrahim in a dream, that you're slaughtering your son and you're killing him.
Why does Ibrahim follow that dream?
Because they say that the dream of the prophets is what revelation is protected from the shaytaan. Our dreams are not like that. So always remember this. Our dreams can be played with if the shaytaan wishes, or they can come from Allah as origin, the NBA their dreams are from Allah as origin protected. So when he saw this, this was a command from Allah as his origin. And this is in a sense, the weakest form of Why? Because this is another test for Ibrahim, this is the weakest form of way, asking him to do one of the most difficult things. Here is this son that you've waited for a very long time, say he was tested First, go and put him in that place and leave him
in Mecca and come back. That's his first test. Now the second test with this son is what
It's not notice it's not your son is going to die because he's going to get sick. Or someone else is going to kill him. Or I don't know, you know, lightning is going to come and kill him. You kill him.
see that command? you kill him? How much do you love him? Do you even wish that he'd be sick? If he sneezes right? You can't sleep. So hey, you cannot sleep. If he's in pain, you're in pain. Now you tell him go kill him with your own hands while you watch. So that's the test for Abraham or not. And they say it's the weakest form of Revelation. While it's not like a lot to come to the seven sky, all the angels are sitting so it can feel the gravity of this command is something he saw in a dream. He could say to himself, God forbid Yanni. Just a dream. Yeah, forget about it. I don't want to even think about it. Or maybe it's not really serious. Or maybe I'll wait till I dream it 100
more times, and then Allah really sends gibreel and then you know, jabril comes next time. It's not that it's just one dream. And that was enough. So a test for him and a test also for his smile. How old is married was what he could be seven. He could be he could be nine around, you know, when he started walking in. He understands well enough, right, right from wrong, and he can help his father and he can come in. And he says, Yeah, cool. Go ahead, if not tomorrow.
So he says Fela muslimah when they surrendered to Allah azza wa jal, or Tila Holden jabeen, who put him face down, right to kill him, he put him face down, so he doesn't have to see his face when he's doing this. And when he was ready, and he had that knife in his hand, and he was about to do it, when are they you know, who are Abraham caatsa Dr. ruja and we call upon him Yeah, Ibrahim, you have fulfilled that dream. You have fulfilled that command in academic energy medicine, and this is how we reward those who are the state of sn they do what Allah azza wa jal wants from him in Allah who will Bella or Moby and this is a clear test from Allah as eligible for the nobility in our name,
we've ransomed him with a great sheep with a great animal. And that is why we do it today. Subhana Allah so every time that you're going to slaughter for the sake of Allah as a soldier during that season, the Hajj season, remember, and this is not a casual story of what he was asked to do on he did it. Now some of them might have said,
you know, why did Allah zodat asked this a Brahim.
And they said, it. Remember that we said that Ibrahim is highly Rola.
And remember what that means that the love of Allah as Odell penetrates every millimeter of his heart, every corner of his heart is filled with Allah's love. They say, well, lo Adam, they say after he had asked Allah azzawajal for a son for such a long time, and then like gave it to him, he says, part of his heart must have gotten attached to that sun. And it's not a sin that this happens, but for the station that Ibrahim was having, and he should have the level of Allah as Odin should be the greatest in his heart. So Allah wanted to test his heart to see which comes first the love of Allah, or the love of his son.
So Allah tested him. And by the way, it is through these tests that your love develops without it. Yeah, not really. But only through a test like that. Do you demonstrate your love and also it develops? So when he was ready to kill his son for the sake of Allah, Allah said, Stop, I don't really need you to kill yourself. What I need from you is to be willing to do this, and then to love me more than anyone else, including that son, that you've been waiting so very long for you to have by
now, so it's Mary and he Sam
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in a hadith separate Hadith I'm going back to the story of nobis had a woman Fukuoka, Lisa, who will be at a movie Anna is married to Ashleigh Senna. He says the first person to speak eloquent Arabic is as smart as Ali Salaam, he was 14 years of age when that happened. It does not mean that Arabic started with his mind, people who spoke Arabic before his mind, but what is he saying? He said, The first person to speak that eloquent, eloquent, prestigious Arabic is is married and essential, meaning he took Arabic to the next level. How old was he?
So is this of him or from Allah, of Allah xojo. At 14, how you be able like to come up with so much so this is from Allah as origin. And this tells you also of course, and this God inherited from him, so people always spoke Arabic after they learned it from him. So the eloquence of Arabic
Got an injection from Allah xiaojin right so Arabic that's the only language I know that was improved by Allah subhana wa tada in addition to what it has, it was improved by Allah azza wa jal through his smile and then of course, the Quran right
now so he grew up he learned Arabic we said he spoke Arabic very eloquently and when he got older everybody admired him and foster home meaning that everybody loved his maid and he said I'm so he married and had your part of the law when he passed away
that's what we know about her we don't know any any extra beyond the story says that she passed away will be alone. he marries from that tribe of Judah home.
Ibrahim comes and visits his son or wants to visit system is Mary was somewhere else. Abraham comes to the house. knocks on the door is married his wife is inside. He asked Where is he? She says outside bringing stuff he's hunting he's doing this is Martin was an archer by the way. The smile on are the things that he would do archery and throwing arrows, right? He was that.
So he says how are you living? How are you living conditions?
So she says we're in hardship. It's terrible. We don't have enough this, this this this she complains complaints, complaints, complaints. So he says when he comes back, say Salaam to him and asked him to change his doorstep.
So he leaves. He comes back he smiled and he said um, and he says I'm noticing something different. It's something you know, happened here. She says he had an old man came and you know, he asked about you and this and that. What do you tell him? I told him this, this this this, you know all the complaints? What did he tell you? He said to say Salaam to you and to change your doorstep. He says that was my father and he was asking me to divorce you. Go back to your family.
Go back to your family. So he divorced her.
Ibrahim alayhis salaam comes again to visit another time.
He comes to see a smiley smile is out. He doesn't find them he find his wife and other wife. He comes in he asks him How are you doing? How are you living conditions? He says Alhamdulillah you know we're in abundance. We are this this this? This this everything? He says What do you eat? He says meat and water. He says May Allah bless that food for you. And they had it had no grain at that time. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says and Allah blesses it for everybody who is in Mecca if you're living in Mecca, if you only eat meat and water, if you're outside Mecca, it will harm you. If you're in your Mecca, it'll be fine for you.
Because this is the dog we brought him into his center. So he says as I say Salaam to him when he comes back and asked him to keep firm and establish his doorstep. So when is married at a salon comes back and he asked her what has happened. He says, a gold man came to visit What did you say to him? You say to him, she said I said this and this and this? What did he tell you say Salaam to you and say establish keep from your doorstep. He says this was my father and he was asking me to keep you.
He was asking me to keep you
Now of course here a question. If your parents come and tell you divorce your wife, should you divorce her? Just like Ibrahim alayhis salaam told this man at least alarmists may listen to him.
Okay? We say what we say something like what mmm no humble said. Somebody came to America humble and he said My father is asking me to divorce my wife. Should I do it? And he was citing a time when autumnal hottub radi Allahu anhu asked his son Abdullah hypno Omar to do so. And the Prophet sallahu wa sallam said obey your father. So Mohammed said if your father is like Omar, then do it.
If your father is like Omar, then do it. If your father is asking you for the sake of Allah azza wa jal to do it, and he or she are pious and righteous and they fear Allah as the origin and they want the best for you, then do it. If it's for some other reason, don't do it.
So that's what we say. If it's for the sake of Allah, as they are saying that, do it if it's just for worldly reasons, and I hate her I'm jealous of her this and that don't do it.
Then, of course, the third time they've not best mentions a visit and this is the visit when they're going to be building the Kaaba. So Ibrahim alayhis salam comes and he says to his son, when he meets him, he says Allah azza wa jal has commanded me to do something. He says, What is it? He says to build that house of Allah azza wa jal? Will you help me? And he says, Yes, indeed, I will help you. So they decided to collect the rocks, and he's married at a ceremony bingo, rock the rocks and we'll bring it to Ibrahim
alehissalaam Abraham would play, put it in place, and they will go around it around it laying the foundations and then around around and the structure would rise as Abraham will put the rocks. And then when it got higher, Ibrahim alayhis salam would climb on a rock. And this is what we call today, Mocambo Ibrahim. So Mohammed Mohammed Ibrahim, which originally was right by the Kaaba, right now it's not, but originally was right by the Kaaba because that's where the Brahim would need to stand for him to be able to put all these rocks right around all around the Kaaba. Later on in the term of a model the Allahu anhu they pushed it back so that people can circle the Kaaba more easily.
Now, but originally it was right beside the Kaaba.
And as they are doing it they were saying Rob Burnett aka Ballymena in NACA, enter a semi Allah Allah May Allah accept from us, you are a semi all hearing and all knowing and that is how the Kaaba was built. And the law as you know, tells us in the foreign way therefore we brought him on camera I mean albedo is Mariela Burnett aka Ballymena in NACA and the semi realism Abraham and Ismail are raising the foundations of the house and they're saying Robin Attica Bellman as we say and they were making also to add to Allah azzawajal and then Allah also says with the Hitomi maqam Ibrahim A masala, you know, and you know, consider or take the Mohammed Ibrahim as a place for prayers or
souls a part of the sooner for people after they do their tawaf to go and pray behind Mocambo Ibrahim, right. And it is said, you know, by the way, in as mentioned, by even you can hear that the Arabs, up until the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or you know, you know, a little bit before it or up to it up to it, they could still see the trace of the foot of Ibrahim on these rocks. They could still see the footsteps.
let's see insha Allah here, if we have covered this?
Yes, we've covered this. And we've covered this one.
Let's say something about the cabin.
Now you've seen the cabin, the cabin nowadays is not on the full foundations of Ibrahim allihies Center. Why what has happened? You see the hedge, right? That Ark that is on the ground when you're circling the Kaaba, and you come to a an area where there's an arc on the ground, right?
So the Kaaba is supposed to extend maybe all the way or just slightly before that arc supposed to extend all the way there. What has happened to it is that
hora ish and this is before the time of the prophet SAW the law he was
a flood King and destroyed the Kaaba.
And so they had to rebuild. Because it's a valley and there are mountains when it rains, all the water comes and they floods that valley. So they had to rebuild. So when they wanted to rebuild they said only bring Hillel income Hillel money to rebuild the cabin. Nothing from gambling, nothing from alcohol, nothing from any any dirty money none nothing. Only the pure halal money should be collected to rebuild the Kava. They collected as much as they can, but not enough.
So they couldn't really continue or you know, you know, build the Kava fully all the way to the foundations of Ibrahim alayhis salam. So they had to make it smaller.
And they also they changed it a little bit. How did they change it? Because at some level, Rahim Allah He slammed the door that the Kaaba had two doors, and these doors were all the way to the ground. Anybody can come from one side and leave to the other,
leave come from one side and go through the other. So you can enter the Kaaba from one with no need for stairs, just walking, you can enter the Kaaba and then leave from the other door. What they did is that they've raised it right, they've closed it, right, they raised it so that you would need stairs to be able to climb into inside the cabin. And they closed one of those doors. So they've sealed one of those doors when they rebuilt. So there's only one door and the other door they raised it so that you need stairs so that you'd enter it. And they did that so they could control who's coming in. So not anybody who's can come in. If we want you to go in, we'll let you in. If not, we
won't let you. So there was a control like that.
Now, this was the kabah the term of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the Prophet told her a shadow of the law and if not that your people are just fresh into Islam.
I would demolish the Kaaba and build upon the foundation of Ibrahim alayhis salam.
But what was he afraid of salon he was alone, that this was a fitna for them. There
The man is weak. And he said, What is this man doing? They'll say to themselves, what is this destroying the Kaaba? It was something big in their eyes, right? That if you destroy the Kaaba, even in the time of the jelenia when they wanted to destroy the Kaaba in the beginning, they were afraid it says, who's going to go and had the axe? Who was the first person who's going to go and strike the cabinet to remove the old foundations and bring on he couldn't only the bravest among them, you know, in terms of Jamelia, he would go there and he struck it with an axe and everybody was looking is he gonna die? No. Okay, good. Okay, go ahead and do it. So he had to be do that. So his Kava is
something big in their eyes. He said, Because of this, because it's such a fitna, I want to do it but I cannot now in the time have been omiya
when Abdullah Abu Zubaydah became a halifa, and there was a fight between them who is going to be a halifa and they laid siege to Mecca supernova was in Mecca.
And burn omiya, the army laid siege to Mecca. So there was the army, new buyer or members of the army made a mistake, the cabinet caught on fire, and it also was burnt. So they wanted to rebuild the cabinet. So he rebuilt the Kaaba, according to the foundations of Ibrahim
because he knew, so two doors, right from this side and that side all the way to the ground. And he extended the Kaaba, right. So he did it that way. But then when when omiya Musa was killed and obernai he took control and they did not know why he did this. So the halifa first or the people there, said, No, what did he do? No, return the cabinet to the way it was, what is it? What did he do? So they returned the cabinet to the way it was sealed one of the doors and then raised one of the doors so that you need stairs to go up and they brought the cabinet they shrunk the cabinet again, to the foundations of before not to the four foundations. When the hollyford omega halifa
realized why even though Serbia has done it, he regretted that and he wanted to redo it again, but it was just too late. And then also one of the ambassadors qualified maybe Harun Rashid or an MADI consultatively memo Malik, he says we know that the Prophet wanted to do this should we do it? And he says yeah halifa don't do it. I'm afraid that this will become a toy in the hands of the Holika anytime a halifa comes he changes the cabin leave it the way it is. So it stayed the way it is from then till today and the way that it was built by the woman yet after they modified it after how severe are the allow and who did it
and the last thing related insha Allah to Hajj are all the Allahu anhu the prophets a lot he was in them here before his death, of course, he said in a common set of tahuna or set of setup that the hoonah Misra set after honami Salah. He said you're going to conquer Egypt
and before his debts a lot he said let me he told the people you're going to conquer Egypt
for either for that to move when you concrete fascino illa Allah be kind to its people for inilah home the mutton hora Hema because they have rights and kinship. So they have rights as people of course that you're going to be you know, have power over and you have a treaty with so they have rights, but they also have Rahim kinship and what is that kinship? hajer are the Allahu Allah is from there. Meaning that you as Arabs,
as Quraysh you go back to who hydrolase salaam so you have connection to that land and connection to its people. fascino illa Allah be kind to its people. So remember, this advice still today? Because it holds true till today that this advice of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam holds true till today.
Now this is the end of the story with this man alayhis salam we don't know what happened to him next, when did he die etc. We don't know any of these details. But we know for sure for instance, that his male and his mother height hajra are not buried in the cabin because a lot of people think that they are buried in the cabin around the cabin or whatever. We don't know where they're buried and they are not buried there. Right.
Now we're gonna inshallah, move to the story I said we embedded in the story of Ibrahim is the story of Israel and what else who else is ha la silla?
So Allah azza wa jal mentions this in three places in the Koran.
And yeah, by the way, I forgot to mention this. One of the evidence also that and I mentioned two more, one note, yeah, two more, no two. So this one and another one. One of the evidence that is made Elisa Lam is
is the slaughtered is the one that Eliza had commanded Ibrahim to slaughter
that's going to come in sha Allah.
So I'll leave it. I'll leave it
Tilak comes in Charlotte and don't worry about it. But I wanted to actually tell you the meaning of the word is Maggie. So it's my E.

He got afraid. He was afraid of them. Why? Because that's not a good sign.
on his part, he did what he was supposed to do. Here's the food you supposed to eat? The good a good attitude. A good response is for you to eat the food of your host when you're not eating. What are you here doing?
Do you want to kill someone? Do you want to steal? Or is it that you're doing? And this tells you that though he is a prophet and a messenger of Allah azza wa jal. He's also what? Human and it's fair, you know, for you to be afraid, you see something like this and you be afraid. It cannot not be afraid. It's like asking him not to be afraid is just like asking him not to be hungry. Not to be sleepy. This is human. So it's not like if you feel afraid, you say, Oh, I don't have a man if I'm afraid. Ibrahim alayhis salam Godfrey, and there's a reason for it. And a lot put that fear in us so that we can save ourselves, right? So if I would just I mean hohepa kaudulla, to have wabasha
rubeola. I mean, I mean, he says Don't be afraid, and they gave him the good news of a knowledgeable son, a son that is going to come your way. In another in the other sequence. He says called Ola to have intercourse in illa komeito He says, Don't be afraid. We have been sent to the people of loot

Like you hear somebody someone are the enemy of Allah as urgent or an enemy of Allah is going to be killed. What do you feel? relief hamdulillah finally it's happening. So when she felt that she left or she smiled, so his heart comes from that his heart, the word his heart comes from them.
So they gave her the good news of his heart. And then after his heart is how he's going to have a son and that son will be called yaku. She said, I said yeah, we're gonna let her vote to me. I wasn't going to give birth and I am old.
This My husband is also all this is something incredible
how to attach it in an umbrella do you say D call incredible the command of Allah azzawajal Is it hard to believe that Allah azza wa jal can do this? But I am a doula who about a character who la comme la Tina Mohammedan Majeed, Mia Rama, Allah and andis Baraka be upon you, the people of the house.
Then, in another sequence, it says for ability, merata, houfy, sobre tin facade catwa she came, and she struck her face out of astonishment.
You told her, you're going to give birth and how old was she? She's old. She's old, and she will we'll see Abraham's response. She's old. She struck her face. She's like, I don't know where and he was like, What? You know, something like this what she struck her face. Well, Carla tattoos in our team, I'm old and barren. I'm not I'm not a woman who can give birth anymore. What is this? that is happening? corluka Delica karara book. He says this is what allows a surgeon has decided.
Ibrahim alayhis salam, this is his response. He says about sharp demonia MSN el kivar Furby matoba Sharon, he says are you giving me good? this good news? After I've reached this old age, what are you telling me?
What are you sharing with me? Right? He's telling them Furby matoba Sharon karlova shanaka Bill healthday falletta, communal carnitine. He says, we're telling you the truth. The good news. This good news is the truth. Don't despair, he says and who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except those who are misguided.
He did not despair. But he has almost reached that level or the point where he thought it's not going to happen. That's why he was so shocked when they said you're going to have a Sunday he says, I'm so old and she sold What are you talking about? He almost forgot about it. But this is Subhanallah the difference between us and Allah zildjian when you ask Allah Allah does not forget about it. You may forget you say your Allah I made for this and this and this for such a long time. And maybe maybe this thing is not good for you and allies, none. Again, again, not gonna give it to you. But if that thing is good for you, you may if you forget about it, but Allah is not going to
forget about it. And he may give it to you at a time when you thought I'm never gonna get it. And then you get it. And this is what he did done with Ibrahim Elise and he says, I stopped thinking about it. I don't think I was gonna get it and now I'm getting it. And so they told him just for all our sake as well. Do not despair of Allah's mercy and he says who despairs of Allah's mercy except those who are misguided. So only the disbelievers only those who are misguided will despair of Allah's mercy. On the other hand, you should never
sometimes you don't know how Allah's mercy is going to come your way. Sometimes it's exactly how you imagined.
Sometimes it's different. You're asking for a son Subhana Allah, there will be some people who will be asking for children, they will never get children. Some people are asking to get married, some of them are not getting not going to get married. It's going to happen. Maybe, but what am I saying that if Allah's mercy does not come to you this way, comes another way. And never despair of Allah's mercy. It's always around you. Is this a lot as though Dell wants to give it to you in a particular way for you.
So, and then Subhan Allah.
Allah xuejun says, Where is this area here? No.
fella Madhava and this is just to testify to Ibrahim's character for the mother habit and Ebrahimi Robert Raja Tula Boucher yuja de Luna. futami Luth he says when he got comforted, that they're not going to hurt him or hurt his family. And we told him this good news yuja de Luna, Camila is arguing with us about the people of loot. We're gonna shala discuss this next week because Neela but he's arguing with the angels about the people of Lord, don't kill them, don't destroy them, delete them, maybe they can repent right? So he argues with them about that postpone them maybe something will. So he's Subhana Allah are very patient and very, very forgiving. The prophets of Allah is origin.
No, some miscellaneous things in sha Allah about Ibrahim just to conclude all of this.
One thing in the Allah as His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says nwacc will be shocking in Ibrahima, if cannot be any key for to he and Mota. Hello, welcome to them in Kala Bella Bella Kalia in Nickleby. He said some of the Hollywood send them we are more worthy of doubt than Ibrahim when he said, Yeah, Allah Show me how you bring the dead back to life. He said, Don't you have Eman? He says Yes, I do. But I want my heart to have comfort and certainty. The Prophet is saying that we are more worthy of doubt than Ibrahim, meaning Ibrahim doubted. Then we also have doubted but I do not doubt then
Abraham did not follow what he's saying that if he says if you think that he has doubted, or was in doubt, when he was asking Allah this, then I am more worthy of having this doubt, but he did not. And this is part of the humility of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was setting them to.
And when you're truly great, you're truly humble.
If you're arrogant, know that you're not great, who are people who are you know, all puffed up and you think that they are and they have to prove every time when they talk to everybody that they're great. When they are nothing on the inside.
They have to, you know, confirm to their math to themselves and to everybody else that they're greater than ever. So they have to prove it. But if you are great,
you think somehow you put yourself below everybody else.
So that's why he said so a lot. He was sitting here he says, he is he he has Salam is at a higher level. That's what he's saying, in essence, although the prophets already sent him is better.
In another instance, somebody told the prophets a lot he sent me says yeah, halal Holika he says Oh, best of creation.
With the prophecy Listen, let me say that. No, it says yahiro Holly, aka Oh, best of creation. He says Dhaka Ibrahim, is that Ibrahim?
He says you're talking about Ibrahim. So again, that's humility when you are humble. That's how when you're great, you're humble. And this is how you behave. So this is what the prophet sallallahu wasallam is telling us is teaching us.
Another one also is that Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran, makenna makenna. Ibrahim we are who do wanna nos Rania. Allah can can hanifa Muslim and Omar can Amina Mashallah king. He says Ibrahim was not Jewish and was not Christian but he was not was a Hanif Muslim Hanif meaning devoted to Allah as the origin and a Muslim and he was not of the polytheists Why is Allah azzawajal saying this because both are claiming him.
So Allah as it just says before it Yeah, hello kita Bielema to her Juna Phoebe Ibrahim. Well, mozila Tito 210 11 bad e FL. atractylodes. He says, Why do you argue about Ibrahim? Each one trying to claim him to your own? And the Torah and the NGO are only revealed when? after him. So could Ibrahim be Jewish?
Know what established Judaism? The Torah? The Torah really is what established Judaism now before
But Abraham was before the Torah
was Abraham Christian. What was what established Christianity there was no Christianity before he sallallahu sallam.
So could Ibrahim be Christian?
What was he Hanif Muslim? But someone who say well he well he was
before the Quran. We say well it's the Koran is not the book that established Islam. What was what is Islam is the religion of Adam alayhis salaam all the way to Mohammed Salah Allah Allah you earlier was in them, all of them. So Ibrahim was a Muslim meaning that he had submitted to Allah as Odin and he was worshiping Allah zildjian alone. So who are the people who are worthy of Ibrahim as Allah says, none of the people who claim him and they don't follow Him and now the Naseby Ibrahim Allah Allah Dena turbo, those who followed him at his time will have the Nabhi and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when Latina Amman and those who have Eman so you if you have
Eman, your of the followers of Ibrahim and he said him and you are of the most worthy of Him.
And the connection of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Ibrahim is evident. So we said that of all of his children who is the one who looks most like Ibrahim
prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so he's looked most like him.
And also what did he call his son,
Ibrahim at a center. So there is a special connection between him and he brought him at his center.
And on the day of judgment on the day of gentlemen, now before that, there's something on the Day of Judgment, but before that, when the prophet SAW Bollywood cinema ascended into the sky, and he saw all the prophets of Allah as the first sky second sky third sky when he went to the seven sky, he saw Ibrahim alayhis salaam reclining against Albanian Malmo the inhabited house and what is this elevator more? This is a house in the southern sky. Right where the cabin is right right where the cabin the earthly cabin is right on top there. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says that every day 70,000 angels would go to that house, worship Allah azza wa jal and leave and never come back to
So every day what 70,000 and the next day, new 70,000 new 70,000 new 70,000
They never come back. So how many angels does Allah have?
Multiply, multiply 70,000 but I don't know how many days How many days. That's how many angels Allah azza wa jal has. In another also when the prophets A lot of us hit him saw him when he ascended.
He saw him so he saw him in his salon, with a lot of children.
And these are the children who died on the fitrah meaning children who died when they were young. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in the beginning of that Hadith, I would love to know more meaning the children of the believers who died when they were young, on the fetullah. So if a person of his is a child of a believing parents, Muslims, and he dies when he's young, when she's young, where does he go?
To gender, to gender? So he was taking care of those children Ibrahim alayhis, Salam Subhan, Allah see what Allah gave him. First of all, he was right next to the house as he built the house in the on this earth in Mecca. And this is, by the way, by the way, it's called Mr. Ibrahim in a hadith. The Kaaba is called Miss Judah Ibrahim in a hadith so that message Abraham, as he had built that Masjid, Allah has just put him right also next to that house of worship on top. And he was longing for children. He wanted children for such a long time, right? So how much how many children did Allah give him? Oh Subhana Allah, all these children who die when they are young. They join Ibrahim
alayhis salaam? If so if a person loses a child, be comforted, be comforted to the fact that they are joining Ibrahim alayhis salam. And the beautiful thing in that Hadith also is they asked for prophet of Allah, Yasuda, Allahu wa oladipo, Shri Kenya, your prophet of Allah and the children of the non believers also will they there, he says and the children of the non believers,
you follow? So the children of the non believers when they die of they are young. There are still on the fifth floor. Right? They join. So Hannah like because, you know, there's a disagreement, you know, you know, between scholars, that children are non believers, do they go to gender immediately? Are they tested or not? But they had it say Bismillah they go to general if they die? Yeah.
of the virtue of Ibrahim alayhis salam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Can I do what I'm gonna do for life? The first two host guests, is Ibrahim alayhis salaam, wa jal Romani statten. And he is the first to be circumcised, and he did it when he was 80 years old, was the tenable Kudu and he was circumcised with a tool that is called a dune. And it's a carpenter's tool. So it's a rough tool. It's not like a delicate tool. It's a rough tool. I don't know really what it looks like. So the prophets already sent me saying that the first person to have guests at home is who
Ibrahim alayhis salam. And also the first to be circumcised is Ibrahim alayhis. Salam.
Abu Musab says and he's a Tabby. So he says certain things about Ibrahim. So the first of them are supported by the Hadith. The others allow argument they are true or not, they could be so he says he's the first to be circumcised. He's the first to host and have guests. So these are supported by the heady so they are true. The rest Hello, Adam. It could be he's the first person to trim his moustache, the first person to clip his nails or cut his nails and the first person to have gray hair. So he says yeah, Allah, what is this? And what is this white hair that I have? He says this is dignity. So he says, Yeah, Allah grant me more dignity. Right? So Allah Allah, maybe it's true,
because this is coming from a Tabby. So it could be any authentic or maybe any not follow Allah. So it could be that he's the first person to get gray hair and then what is it? dignity so and if, again, you know, if you're getting gray hair, right? If you're getting gray hair, you know, don't be so sad. Just remember Ibrahim alayhis. Salam he saw it. This is what is that? He said dignity, right. And by the way, of course, you know, men Shahbaz Sharif Islam, right, so if you get gray hair in Islam, what does that count as?
A good deed? You know that.
It's a good deed has been. So each like because of handler Why? Because you've lived in Islam, and you gain that gray beard, a gray hair in Islam. So it counts as a hassle. So it's not something shallot to be so disturbed about. And by the way, you're going to be young again, right in sha Allah if Allah when Allah wishes. If you enter gender, you're going to be young again. So you know you're not going to have that gray hair.
And the last thing about Ibrahim alayhis salam is that the Prophet said he's the first person to be closed on the Day of Judgment. So when people are going to be resurrected mean being brought back to life, and they stand before Allah as evident when we have clothes on you
No will stand up completely naked. No one is going to be worried about whether he's naked or not. She's naked or not no one, you know, you know has you know, the time to worry about these things, and then people will be clothed. Who is the first who will be clothed? Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and that is an honor and a virtue that Allah has given gifts to him at his center. So this ends you know the story we brought him alayhis salaam as I said, previously, we don't know for sure where he was buried. Some people say that he's very, you know, in a city that is named after him and his Salaam it's a possibility but we have no evidence from the Quran and the Sunnah to confirm it, but only
what people are saying so Alo alum if it is his grave or not,
we have no reason to assume that it is but this is the story of Rahim Allah Salaam. And it's also the story of Ibrahim and story of his heart. We don't know much about his half beyond what we said, except that he is the father of jacobellis Anna. Oh, yeah, by the way, that's when also on evidence that
is how could not have been the slaughtered son or the son that Brahim attempted to slaughter. When they gave Sarah.
The good news, what did they tell her? Is her own worries Haha, yeah, you're gonna have his heart and he's gonna have a son. His name is yaku. Now the one who's supposed to be slaughtered was a kid, he didn't have any children? How could it make sense that you gave a prediction and tell him this is his heart and he's going to have children Meaning what? He's going to get older and he's going to get married, he's going to have a child. And then you see go and kill him.
Doesn't make sense. You could say, oh, but you promised me that he's so it's not going to go through. Because there's a promise from Allah azza wa jal that he's gonna get old, and we're gonna get married, and we'll have children. So it means that your command to slaughter him is not going to go through. And if he dies, you're going to bring him back to life. Because your first promise has to be true.
How would this be an actual test if such a promise is never given? With his made, that promise was not given he's going to grow older, he's going to have children that promise was not given. That's why Ibrahim's tests when at least sit down when he was asked, go and kill him. That was the test. Because he could die right there and never come back. what's the what's what, what? How could it be a test if I'm going to kill him? He's gonna come back kind of test. Is that, okay? I'll kill him. I'll kill him every day. I don't know. If you're upset. I'll kill me to come back. Kill him come back. So how is that a test? It's only a test if you kill him and he's not going to come back. So
that's also other evidence that they said that it could not been his heart, because there is a promise that his heart was given. They knew that he's going to grow old is married. They did not know that about Lowell.
So this is in Sharla. The end of it be in illa xojo concludes Ibrahim and it's mainland is Halima Salaam next week Bismillah. We'll talk about the story of loot, and the people of loot. And he said oh yeah
