00:03:20--> 00:03:54

All praise is due to Allah we seek His guidance and his forgiveness and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the whispering of our desires, whom Allah guides no one can misguide. And whom he allowed us to be misled. No one can guide and I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship except Allah alone, having no partners at that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his slave and His messenger and his perfect worshiper. Allah subhana wa Tada says, Oh, you who believe fear Allah as he deserves to be feared and do not die except in a state of Islam. And Allah says, Oh, mankind Fear your Lord who created you from a single soul and produce from that soul its mate,

00:03:55--> 00:04:16

and made from their combination many men and women so Fear your Lord whom you ask each other by and by the ties of kinship, verily, Allah is Ever Watchful over you. And Allah subhana data says, Oh, you who believe fear Allah and say that which is correct, he will correct for your deeds, and forgive you your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, then they are indeed victorious as to proceed.

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

Allah Subhana Allah to Allah,

00:04:23--> 00:04:27

in the Quran, tells us beautiful stories,

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

and the best of stories.

00:04:31--> 00:04:57

And this Quran is a source of incredible wisdom and guidance in every aspect of our lives. And today in this brief quote, but I just wanted to look at an aspect. That is one that is incredibly crucial. In our time in place, the society that we live in a society that actually has the highest percentage of fatherlessness in the world is in the United States.

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

So I wanted to speak

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

To the relationship specifically that a father has with his son, as presented to us in the Quran, what gems we can extract what beauty we see and inshallah Donna I'll just be looking at for specific angles. And though the Quran also presents the relationship with fathers and daughters, specifically in American society, there is a conflict that is presented between fathers and sons.

00:05:28--> 00:05:39

And so we wanted to look and see how it does Allah Subhana Allah to Allah present that beautiful relationship from the people that we are introduced to in the Quran.

00:05:40--> 00:06:17

And so the first is we seek constant advice from the fathers to their children to their sons. We seek advice that is only interrupted by death, whether it is the death of the Father, Allah subhanaw taala says for example, presenting one of the great fathers in the Quran, yeah, who by the Silla, Allah says I'm Quinton shahada is how they are COVID mode is finally Benny Hema taboo and I mean by the Cardona, Buddha ilaha illa Abeg Gabe Rahim is my Eloise Huck ILAHA hidden when I knew the homeless lemon, and so Yaqoob is on his deathbed

00:06:18--> 00:06:39

even though he has a son who is a prophet, and according to some of them have sad, his other sons were prophets. It is something that is debated among the scholars of Tafseer. But if we were to assume that all of them were prophets, yeah, whoever it is set up is still giving advice to his children. Even as he's dying. He's giving advice to his sons.

00:06:41--> 00:06:54

So sometimes we might get older and we're like, why are my parents still giving me advice? I'm 20 years old, I'm 30 years old. We see Apple by they sell out giving advice to his kids until he sold it or set it up passes away.

00:06:55--> 00:07:40

Or it is not interrupted until the death of the child. Whether it is the death of the father or the death of the Son. And so we see no, i They said I'm calling out to his son and he say, yeah, when they have cut mine out when I tell him I'll Catherine, he's saying to his son, oh, my son, get on the ark with us. And do not be with those who are disbelievers. And the son he says to our we call us alila Simonian and map file in our house asked him on Yom I mean Amity Allah, Allah ma Rahim, wahala Boehner, whom Allah Mojo Fergana minimum of Allah T. New alayhi salam is calling out to his son until the wave comes in between them. And he's engaging with his son. He's responding to his

00:07:40--> 00:08:19

son, his son says I'm going to climb a mountain. And no La Silla is listening and he's still responding. Some of us we talk over each other, but no la Salam is repeating the exact words that his son is saying to indicate him being listening and responsive. Even in the last moments. We see Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam and his uncle Abu Talib, who was his father figure to him and Rasool Allah, Allah Allah Allah has ended up on the deathbed of authority is saying yeah, I'm put Allah Allah Allah Allah say, Allah, Allah and Allah is a statement by which I will argue on your behalf in front of Allah subhanho wa taala. What can I throw at me? I know Allah Mila. And his last words were

00:08:19--> 00:08:23

that he was upon the middle of Ebola of at the mortality of his father.

00:08:24--> 00:08:36

But the idea here is the constant advice that the righteous fathers would give to their children until death. And of course, you have the great advice of Lachman who gives advice to his son

00:08:38--> 00:09:15

and he says loud to Shrek Biller, oh my son, my dear son, do not commit shirk with Allah subhanaw taala in the shekel, a woman Allium, and the passage continues until he says Yagoona yaki masala Totten would have been my rule if you want her and in mukha, hospital sabak In a dyadic I mean, asmall mode, he says, Oh, my son, after commanding him to not commit Schick and after telling him that no matter what you do on this earth, no matter how small, Allah subhanaw taala will present it to you on the Day of Judgment. And that is a very, very, very powerful advice to give to your children, recognizing that you know what, I'm not going to be with you every step of the way. And so

00:09:15--> 00:09:41

I am not raising my son, to fear my presence. But I am raising my son to be aware of the presence of Allah subhanaw taala. And I've given this example many times, but there was a brother one time that I met in this masjid, and I've never seen him before, and I've never seen him since. I've never seen this brother before or since. But he said something that Subhanallah I never forgot. He said, I tell my children. Do you want to know when y'all will be Muslim?

00:09:42--> 00:09:49

And his kids say, What do you mean? Of course, we're already Muslim and he says, No, you will be Muslim. When you pray without me or your mom telling you to pray.

00:09:51--> 00:09:52

That's when you will be Muslim.

00:09:53--> 00:09:58

Meaning I'm raising my children to be aware of the presence of Allah subhanaw taala not my presence.

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

And he's saying to his son, even if it'd be an atom's weight of a sin, Allah subhanaw taala bring it and then he says, yeah, when I actually Mr. Salah established the prayer,

00:10:09--> 00:10:45

what motivated motto if you want honeymoon calm, and command good and forbid evil, the first step after belief in Allah subhana.is To worship Allah worship Allah. And then the third step after worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, is to call others to the worship of Allah, and to be someone who is a source of change in the world of positive influence in the world, go out into this world and command good and forbid evil. But what else are you going to have to have after you go out into this world and you command good and forbid evil was when Adam sabak endure the harm that's going to come your way, not everybody is going to be happy with change. And not everybody is going to be happy

00:10:46--> 00:11:05

with you trying to rectify oppression in this world and wrong in this world. What's the benign I'm outside like have resilience in Nevada, communism and more, that is of the affairs of great commitment. You see, the beautiful advice that look man is that I'm just giving and so we see the Father gives advice to his son.

00:11:06--> 00:11:37

Number two, the fathers of the Quran speak to their sons in endearing gentle terms. You will find that Luqman Ali Salam calls his son Yeah, Boonie Oh, my endearing son, you will find that Ibrahim alayhis salam calls him his son. Yeah, Boonie you will find Jacoba they said I'm calling his son Yagoona you will find no idea is that I'm calling his Latin Yeah. Boonie Oh, my dear son, even though these are people of different ethnicities, different cultures, different languages, different centuries, different regions.

00:11:38--> 00:11:56

All of these fathers, these righteous fathers in the Quran when they're speaking to their sons, they are speaking to them with endearing beautiful terms. The only father in the Quran who speaks to his son by his first name is Abu Ibrahim It is sometimes father, but and Taraji went on earlier to Ebrahim.

00:11:57--> 00:12:30

He calls out to Ibrahim and he says, Are you trying to dissuade me from my idols Ibrahim, even though we see in Surah Maryam that Ibrahim alayhis salam is calling out to his Father with beautiful endearing terms. Yeah, but the laptop with the shade in the shade Lana kind of like my now see, he's calling him by his name, my dear father, but his father is not responding to Ibrahim ideas sit down with that beauty. And he simply calls him by his first name. It is something beautiful that a father call a sudden, by something that is endearing, that there'll be some sort of nickname that there'll be some sort of phrase.

00:12:33--> 00:12:36

I was debating whether to share this. But if you'll indulge me on a personal story.

00:12:39--> 00:12:51

In my culture, we don't say, Habibi, or anything like that. We don't do that stuff. And my father ahem, hola. He communicated love in many different ways. But like that type of heavy phrase stuff, he didn't do that at all.

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

But he did say it one time.

00:12:55--> 00:13:01

And it became a very fun memory for me. We took he was traveling overseas.

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

And the culture is we all go to the airport, my family, but also the number of families, family, friends and all of that we all go see him off at the airport. That's just the way that we grew up doing it.

00:13:14--> 00:13:19

And so there's maybe three or four or five families all watching him go through check in.

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

And we're all just a crowd at the airport.

00:13:24--> 00:13:30

And then he calls me from amongst all the people that I might have been like 21 or 22 years old, and he says, I'm Martha habibi.

00:13:31--> 00:13:38

He says, I'm Mark Come, beloved, and I'm like, Oh, my goodness. What is this? My ears perked up, never heard it before.

00:13:39--> 00:13:45

And then he calls me close. And he says, where nobody else could hear. He says, I forgot my passport at home.

00:13:47--> 00:13:54

He says, he says, Go Go and get it. And Akina says, If you never left doesn't want anybody to know.

00:13:56--> 00:14:28

When I tell you that Habibi had me doing speeds on the highway that no cop was going to catch me. No cop was going to catch me. But that's just the phrase, you don't know what a phrase like that means for a son coming from his father. And so it's beautiful that you see Yabu name again and again and again in the Quran, endearing terms. Number three, the fathers of the Quran, do not belittle the intelligence of their children. They don't belittle the intelligence of their sons, you know, Yaqoob it is. His son is presented with a dream.

00:14:30--> 00:15:00

And his son comes to him and he says, tells the dream. And his father says, You have when a laptop so slow, yaka athletic. He says, Don't tell your dream to your brothers. How many fathers young boy would have just stopped there? Don't tell him the dream. That's it. Why? Because I said so you're not going to understand don't tell them to dream. But what does Jacoba Estevan do? He spends the next two verses explaining to this little boy? What would happen fakie do like a Qaeda in the Shavon

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

I'm insane, I'll do one movie, because I think he got a book, he he continues to explain to him that if you do so your brothers will plot against you. And he explains to him that that's not because of the evil of your brothers, but because of the evil of shape line and that he's an enemy. And you might think to yourself, What does the little boy need to know about all of these things, but he's not belittling the intelligence of this boy. He recognizes that use of Ideas set up can understand these concepts. And you see, not only him, but you see Ibrahim, it is set up for the murder of a man who said Carly Abdullah in Iraq in Miami only as Barack fumble mother, Tara,

00:15:38--> 00:16:18

strategy, the nature of slavery. Even when it comes to Ibrahim's dream, he tells and he communicates to his boy who's very young. He simply got to the point where now he's able to walk with Him and work with him. 910 11 years old, maybe. And he says, I saw a dream as well. What do you see? And he said, My Father, do what you've been commanded to do, you will find me insha Allah to Allah to be of those who are patient, but that idea of conversing with your sons, including them in discussions Rasulullah sallallahu they're sending them he says, to even Abbas He says, Yeah, hola. I'm in New I Luca Kalamata, for the Leia for that he's describing to Ibn Abbas was nine or 10 years old and

00:16:18--> 00:16:53

little Zulu la sala de Sena Miss telling him that beautiful Hadith that's an epitome that we've talked a lot about over the past few months, but he says them know that if an entire world were to gather to harm you they wouldn't be able to hire me with anything more than what ALLAH SubhanA data has already written for you. And you might think to yourself, yep, the province of Allah as a nine year old boy, what does a nine year old boy has to know about the entire world showing enmity to them? So only nine years old, eight years old. This is too big of a conversation for a kid. But yet we see these fatherly figures not belittling the intelligence of their children. And the last thing

00:16:53--> 00:17:20

that I mentioned the fourth is participation and worship together. Allah subhana wa Tada says, way the Hellfire Abraham will cover them in NBT Where is my hero Robina Taco Bell Mina in the contest, Samuel Halle, Abraham it is Salam and ismail together, father and son are raising the pillars of the Kaaba together. And they are both saying to Allah, Oh Allah accept from us you are the one who accepts you are the All Knowing,

00:17:21--> 00:17:46

worshiping together, traveling together doing Amara together, Salah in congregation together in the family in the house, this is all very, very important. This is all very crucial to build the relationship between the father and son. It is a beautiful thing when fathers and sons spend time together and it is even more beautiful when that time that is spent is in the worship of Allah Allah Massey Mr. Mustafa Allah they were looking for stuff you know in order before Rahim.

00:17:52--> 00:18:24

Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while it was like this and esteemed cathedra We ask Allah azza wa jal to allow us to hear the speech and follow the best of it.
