00:00:20--> 00:00:21

smilla rahmanir rahim

00:00:23--> 00:00:34

al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. Early he was so happy he urged my brothers and sisters in Islam. A salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:36--> 00:00:45

We are continuing the lessons from the story of Abraham alayhis salaam. He is the father of the prophets. Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam is our MBA.

00:00:47--> 00:00:50

And our scholars say that one of the reasons he is called a will MBA

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

is because

00:00:54--> 00:01:22

most of the generations of prophets that came after him or all of them even some of them say all came from his lineage after him. Ibrahim alayhis salam had his How can you smile alayhi wa sallam, and from them came children who all the other prophets that came after them were a result of his two children. So they call him Abu mbf, the father of all these prophets. It is a great noble

00:01:24--> 00:01:56

nobility for Ibrahim alayhis salaam to be called by our Prophet Mohammed Salah Selim, the father of the prophets, he is also Halima Rockman. Or Holly Lola, the special friend of Allah Spano died and this title was given to only Ibrahim alayhis salaam, Mohammed Salah wa salim is habibollah and Habib is actually a little bit more special than Hollywood. A closer one than Halle Berry, Ibrahim Ali Salim was a special prophet. He is an amazing messenger of Allah

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

subhana wa Daad.

00:02:01--> 00:02:30

We spoke last week about Ibrahim alayhis salam and the idols and how he was thrown in the fire, and how we called upon Allah alone. Recall the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that Ibrahim Ali Salim said has to be Allah wanyama Joaquin, this is in Buhari that he said sufficient is a law for me and the best one to rely upon. There is another Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam which is also here that he said, anyone who says this

00:02:31--> 00:02:48

at a time of hardship or calamity, and puts his trust truly in a last panel dialer, except that a Lost Planet Allah will relieve him or her from that calamity sooner or later, and we'll give them something better. But you have to put your reliance upon him subhanho wa Taala

00:02:49--> 00:02:54

has to be a law wanyama lucky enough for me is Allah and the best one to rely upon.

00:02:55--> 00:02:56

After the fire

00:02:59--> 00:03:06

the only one that believed in him was a lot at a salon because Allah says in the Quran for Mennella, Hulu

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

and lot believed in Abraham.

00:03:11--> 00:04:01

work in a Mahajan no BS in Allah Aziz will Hakeem. And then said I am leaving this place for my Lord. Indeed he is the Almighty, the all wise. So I brought him out I still am left with little SLM after the fire out of the land of Babylonia, which he was in or close to Babylonia after what had been done, there was no more chance for his people. And with the permission of Allah He left, no prophet is permitted to leave his people to migrate to another place without the permission of Allah subhanaw taala. This is undoubtedly the case, there was only one prophet who left without the permission of Allah and His name was Yunus intimate alayhis salam. Allah said the Prophet Muhammad

00:04:01--> 00:04:07

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while attacking Casa haibun hood. Do not be like

00:04:09--> 00:04:34

the Prophet of the whale, the one who was swallowed by the whale. In other words, don't be like him. Don't leave your people and give up hoping them without my permission. Ibrahim alayhis salam migrated with Lord away from this land with the permission of Allah subhanaw taala. And because there was no more no more hope in practicing their Deen here it was over. They cannot preach their Deen. If they do their lives are at stake.

00:04:35--> 00:04:47

There was nothing about it. So in this case, we said in our earlier classes that you must migrate to a land where you can practice your deen better or if there is an Islamic State, you must migrate to there. Anyway.

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

So here Ibrahima is Salomon multilift. And we mentioned that before they left, they did meet with the king Nimrod, Nimrod, Nimrod and they had a debate over the oneness of

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

last panel with the island and we mentioned that Nimrod the king, he claimed that he is God, he is a law. He never said the word Allah, we're going to come to that today's explain why the word Allah is not mentioned in idols, and you don't hear any of the kings of the past. Even those who claim that they were gods, they never used the name a lot to themselves. We're going to mention that in a little while in sha Allah. But they used to say things like this, and our bakuman Allah. This is in relation to Pharaoh and Pharaoh who exists at a time of masala Salah. He used to say, an Arabic woman, Allah, I am your great Lord. Now I live in LA in a lady, I never knew any god worthy any god

00:05:37--> 00:06:19

have to be worshipped. Other than myself. They used Illa. They used Rob they never used Allah. And Nimrod also said that I am Europe I am your Lord, meaning your God. And when they brought him on his cell and faced him and debated him and challenged him, he said, My Lord, since you call yourself a Lord, my lord brings life and death. And he said to him, I also bring life and death. And he brought two people he killed one and let one free. This is not what Abraham is meant. But when an argument can no longer work, you go to a stronger one. He said into my lord brings out the sun from where it rises, you bring it out from where it sits for in Nara, BIA TV, Sham seminary, musharaka TV,

00:06:19--> 00:06:35

hemichannel, Muslim, phabricator, Lyrica, for then my lord brings up some from arises, you bring it up from where it sets, and the person, the disbeliever, who was arrogant and boastful against Allah, he was silenced. He had nothing to say, if your Lord you'll be able to do that.

00:06:36--> 00:07:05

Otherwise, my load is stronger than your Lord than you then. And you're weak. You're a weakling. I shouldn't be worshiping you. So the argument was gone. We mentioned this last class for those of you who want to look at how the debate happened and the arguments there. Now, Ibrahim alayhis salam left with some with his some historians say he was his nephew, others They say he was his first cousin. Allah knows exactly but he was related to Ibrahim alayhis salam in one way or another.

00:07:07--> 00:07:08

I'd like to mention something

00:07:09--> 00:07:13

that was in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:07:15--> 00:07:16

And

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

this hadith

00:07:23--> 00:07:29

is an algo Hari that there was a lizard, a particular type of lizard

00:07:32--> 00:07:49

that you find that I don't know if you've ever seen in Australia but in back in when I was in Lebanon or even in Fiji I went to Fiji one time and some other places if you when you in your home you may find this lizard it's it's a house lizard, yellowish in color.

00:07:50--> 00:07:54

So this particular lizard that you find sometimes on the walls or in the house,

00:07:55--> 00:07:56

this lizard

00:07:57--> 00:08:07

actually tried to make the fire bigger. On Ibrahim Elise announced ignite the fire grader and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said

00:08:09--> 00:08:27

and then the vs Allah said Mr. B Caitlyn was Allah. It's called the wizard in Arabic will call a Cana young for Allah Ibrahim. The prophet SAW Selim order to kill the wizard, the house lizard and set it blue in the fire of Abraham la center. Now what that means is that this lizard it can't make the fire bigger. It's just the lizard.

00:08:29--> 00:08:40

It's just the lizard. Tiny lizard. But what he said was this lizard. Somehow illustrata knows exactly he knows the best about his creatures and his animals which he has created this reptile was blowing

00:08:42--> 00:08:47

in the intention that the fire get bigger and Ebrahim Elisa is an enemy of Abraham, Allison and for some reason.

00:08:49--> 00:09:00

And the prophet SAW Selim said octonal was a in another Hadith kill the house lizard because it flared up the fire of Ibrahim Ali Center. This is narrated by Ayesha or the lohana.

00:09:02--> 00:09:07

And in another narration, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:09:09--> 00:09:18

Imam Ahmed narrates from nephele saying that a woman entered upon it shouldn't be alone. And so a spear that was standing

00:09:19--> 00:09:22

she asked, What is this spear for?

00:09:24--> 00:09:27

And is read on replied, We kill with it the house lizard.

00:09:29--> 00:09:41

Then she narrated from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Hadith that when Abraham I Salaam was thrown into the fire, all the animals and insects started to put it off, put it out.

00:09:43--> 00:09:53

I tried to come and put it out. The creatures the beasts, the insects, except the house lizard, it started flaring it up. how Allah Subhana Allah knows with the intention Then

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

there is another Hadith that it mentions the frog that the frog

00:10:00--> 00:10:15

Try to extinguish the fire with bringing water into its mouth and trying to spit it out. Now so when I look at the frog, if it lives outside the water for a while it skin it skin dries and after a while it will die.

00:10:16--> 00:10:29

And if it comes close to the fire obviously it's gonna dry up its skin it's it's fatal to it. Yet it was coming to try and put water in its mouth and trying to spit it even though it doesn't do anything to extinguish the fire.

00:10:32--> 00:11:15

This is the case of the frog pointing out an important moral here that some people we don't some some of us don't have enough strength to actually combat something to change a bad to good, but we may have some tiny ability. Allah subhanaw taala does not bear us more than more bearers or command us to do more than what we can be a loss isn't the current law you can live alone Epson Illa Allah does not burden anyone more than what it can be. And Allah says in the Quran phatak Allah Hi Mr. Ratan Tata Lucha Mr. Bottom, fear your Lord obey your Lord as much as you can learn who can live when Epson

00:11:17--> 00:11:54

Illa was aha we do not burden any soul more than what it can do. So this is a relief for us as Muslims, that our last panel data there's not one heart you for us in Islam but once as you do as much as you can, but don't overburden yourself in this is a different lesson as well, that we shouldn't take on more than what we think can tire us out and burn us out. A man came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and said to him you know sort of Allah I have vowed that every single night I will read the whole Quran from beginning to end until I die the prophet SAW sent him advise them not to in the beginning he said then don't be like so and so. He vowed to pray every single night and now

00:11:54--> 00:12:14

he burnt out basically and now he's not doing it anymore. Be a person who starts off slowly and increases Don't be a person who is up here in other words and then becomes down here someone is doing something good and then doesn't do it anymore. It is better to do less with greater quality rather than a lot and you're going to burn out and leave it out afterwards.

00:12:15--> 00:12:32

Also Salim said in Allah you have beloved either Amina amen and youth clean who Allah loves a servant that when they do an action, they do it completely. They don't do it halfway or so. Do what you can bear don't take on more than what you can bear, just like the frog did out of its love for Ibraheem alehissalaam

00:12:37--> 00:12:57

some people asked me, where is the story of the argument between Ibrahim alayhis salam and a neighborhood? It is in Surah Al Baqarah verse two five a to Allah. Allah mentions this incident between Ibrahim alayhis salam and the king he doesn't mention his name but Allah mentions Ibrahim and the men of power.

00:12:58--> 00:13:09

So now Allah says Lord Ali Salim believed in him, and they lift, Allah says we saved a lot. And we saved Ibrahim alayhis alayhi wa sallam.

00:13:12--> 00:13:15

They went to Syria. First.

00:13:17--> 00:13:23

Some narrations tell us that Ibrahim alayhis salam met his wife, his first wife, his first Xhosa.

00:13:26--> 00:13:28

Sarah, in Syria,

00:13:29--> 00:13:32

somewhere in Damascus, close to there.

00:13:33--> 00:13:45

In those days, Syria was different to the Syria of terrain today, when he used to say Syria, it was quite a large land, it included what we call today, Lebanon, it included.

00:13:46--> 00:13:50

Jordan included other parts, so similar to saying greater Syria today.

00:13:52--> 00:14:06

And he sat there for a bit to see whether him and his family are able to establish regular prayers and invite others to the message of Allah subhanaw taala. But over there, he found a very different type of people.

00:14:07--> 00:14:13

They also worship other than Allah. But these types of people worshiped stars.

00:14:15--> 00:14:53

Each one chose a cluster of stars, or a star of their own and made it their God and gave it a name and believed in it in their own superstitious beliefs. Some of them believe all of them believe that they can tell them the future and they can prevent them from things. So when they needed something, they look at this and I call upon it, and each one had a name. And as we said in our last class today in astrology, and star signs and all that other stuff, these are names that you hear of that were taken from people who used to worship them. They're based on a belief system, that people who worship the stars and Allah mentions them here in the court. And so it's early as that we're talking

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

about decades of 1000s of years.

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

Decades of 1000s, if not 100,000

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

years ago, they worship stars.

00:15:06--> 00:15:19

So they worship something that they can see, but it cannot benefit them. Yet Allah tells us to worship him when we cannot see him. But everything on earth proves that there is a maker further was beyond this tells us everything about his character, for example,

00:15:21--> 00:15:33

about his attributes sorry, if I, when you look at this car and stand here, you look at its design. If you analyze its design, and you go good common sense, and you know a little bit about wood,

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

it tells you a lot about the person who made it

00:15:38--> 00:15:46

tells you a lot about the person who made it, you'd be surprised on how much it tells you about the person who designed it. Archeologists

00:15:47--> 00:16:24

are the experts in studying artifacts of the past when they find them in the deserts, or wherever they find them. And they tell you so much about civilizations that existed before about their intellect, their behavior, their social norms, the way they looked, their color, how long they lived, their beliefs, they tell you as though you were living there watching them yet they have passed away and made, they haven't seen or spoken or heard any of them. So allows design on earth tells you a lot about our last panel dilates creator. Seeing a lot is a reward. It's something you get engender

00:16:26--> 00:16:55

a lot and allows to see him here and we're going to talk about that in the story of Musa alayhis salaam when it comes to explain why we cannot see a lot here. But the point is, there is a wisdom behind it. What we have is enough for us to believe in Allah in this test on Earth. But unfortunately, people they don't want to worship something they can't see or touch. So they make up something. There is no solution. They haven't found the solution. They just make up something from their heads. And they call it their Deen their religion.

00:16:57--> 00:17:33

And when it comes down to the crunch, and these people are in dire need, for example, in severe illness, or that as Allah describes it in the Quran, in the middle of the sea, and the waves hit them and the storm hits them and they know that they're going to die. They call about the call upon Allah with sincerity. I spoke to an atheist the other day, and he Subhanallah agreed with me about that. He said, there's one thing he brought it up. He said, there's one thing I cannot understand. I can't explain. I said what is it below he said it to me without me opening. He said when a person is an absolute dire need to the last brink, he will call upon the one true God will call upon God

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

Allah.

00:17:35--> 00:18:02

We as Muslims don't realize it because we haven't been of another atheist or anything like that. But those who were they can tell you that when it comes to dire need. They call upon the one true God, oh God. And they mean the real God, the most powerful guide, not the Son of God, not the spirit not they'll call upon the God. When you're in absolute dire need. They want the most powerful they want the most unique, they want the they want the King of kings, they want him.

00:18:03--> 00:18:05

They want him deep inside, so planula

00:18:07--> 00:18:29

so they're worshipping stars, each one's calling a star name. So Ibrahim alayhis salam was a very smart and intelligent young man at that time, at that time, meaning at that time was a young man. Because when we hear about Ibrahim alayhis salam and Hades is always talking about the shape of the old man. But at that time, he was still young, and very smart and intelligent.

00:18:32--> 00:18:42

He wanted to teach the people in a way without debating getting into debates with them, to let them see for themselves, that what they are worshipping is false.

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

So what did he do?

00:18:46--> 00:18:51

He did what they did, but not in seriousness. He said, You know,

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

I choose for myself this star

00:18:56--> 00:19:19

chose for himself as a CCO club. In the Quran. Allah uses the word, Rocco cover. He saw a CCO club in a star in Arabic is called najem or nedjma. But here Allah uses the word Coke, you'll find the negative seeds of the core and they'll loosely say coca is a star.

00:19:20--> 00:19:32

Well, that's what you see with your eye. But as technology and scientific technology advanced, we find that not everything you look at is the star which is described as a burning fire.

00:19:34--> 00:19:49

We call them stars because that's what they look like. They've also called najem. But their true reality we don't know but a lie I mentioned cocoa and cocoa is more referring to a land or something other than it than a star, something like a planet.

00:19:51--> 00:19:55

cocom something which is round and contains material

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

and other types of information in there but anonymously.

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

is different najem and cocoppa two different things. So here we find omens Allahu Allah a another piece of information that was discovered only a few decades ago. They're not all the stars you see in the sky are actually stars of fire. Some of them are planets. He said he saw a coca he saw a planet or what looked like a star. And he said, Heather, this is my lord everyone.

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

I choose this one.

00:20:26--> 00:20:34

Obviously, just to teach them didn't mean it. Allah says in the Quran fella fella when it faded away.

00:20:36--> 00:20:46

color and you know, have been feeling he said, Hold on. No, no, no, no, I don't like those who leave me. If this is my Lord and I can see it. I should always be able to see it. Why is it left me? It's left me.

00:20:47--> 00:20:50

No, no, no, no, no one saw a load that was always with me.

00:20:53--> 00:20:57

So then he waited. And Allah says that he saw the moon

00:20:59--> 00:21:28

falam mera el kamar bezahlen when he saw the moon, bright color Hazara be Heather Akbar. This is my Lord. Everyone. I've changed my mind. The star left me. Now this moon is huge. This is bigger, brighter, looks nicer. This has to be my Lord. This is my Lord. This is bigger. But then, when the moon left, fella, fella

00:21:29--> 00:21:36

when it went Carlota Islamia, Dini, Robbie. He said, If my lord doesn't guide me,

00:21:37--> 00:21:58

I will be among the losers, or the last people is telling us to the people saying I'm searching. I'm not making up something. I'm asking my Lord to guide me. So when the sun came up, for that matter, I shall serve as the Latin when he saw the sun bright. Carla has to be Heather akubra This is my Lord. This is the biggest This is bigger.

00:21:59--> 00:22:02

filament flf when the sun faded away,

00:22:03--> 00:22:09

he said, Oh people, bear witness that my Lord is Allah.

00:22:11--> 00:22:15

The creator of everything, my Lord is Allah, the Lord of all.

00:22:18--> 00:22:19

How many people believed in him?

00:22:21--> 00:22:21

No one.

00:22:22--> 00:22:23

Only Sarah.

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

And Ibrahim Ali is selling married her

00:22:28--> 00:22:32

and they lift him and Sarah and Lu

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

la Muslim.

00:22:36--> 00:22:38

Now, you might be asking, maybe

00:22:39--> 00:22:46

I'll ask if you haven't asked that. Why did Ibrahim alayhis salam mainly just say? He said, My Lord is Allah?

00:22:48--> 00:22:57

Why not further argumentation debates? Obviously there was some debates. But why did he refer to his Lord as Allah and it was sufficient without seeing him.

00:22:59--> 00:23:02

Because brothers and sisters, the name Allah.

00:23:04--> 00:23:16

Allah is both a name of Allah of the one true God, and it has a meaning. And from the history of men, to the end of time history of humans in Arabic.

00:23:17--> 00:23:30

And in any other language. If you say Allah, Allah, it has only one meaning. And it's actually a name. And it sounds like it's two syllables. Two syllable word.

00:23:31--> 00:23:50

A two syllable word. If you've studied linguistics, you know what I'm talking about. But there was a linguist and linguistics, who existed today who actually embraced Islam digest, studying the name a lot, the word Allah, He embraced Islam from it. It's not just a word. It's a very deep word. But all I can tell you is this.

00:23:52--> 00:24:23

The word Allah refers to the one most powerful, unique, magnificent, Almighty true. God that is perfect. With full perfection. Everybody in the history of human mankind knows that the word Allah refers to him. That's it, it cannot refer to anything else. linguistically, by language. It cannot make sense to apply it to anything or any being except for the one true magnificent, most perfect in all perfection.

00:24:25--> 00:24:25

creator.

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

language like doesn't make sense.

00:24:29--> 00:24:35

It's a name, it's singular, can never be plural can never be jewel. Never.

00:24:36--> 00:24:44

Almost every other word you can make a jeweler plural. But the word Allah the name Allah cannot be plural cannot be jewel can only be singular number one.

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

It is one syllable word, even though it sounds like two syllables, because I'm not going to go into depth because I might lose you. But in Arabic linguistics, the word anything which starts with L is a two syllable word or a three cycle.

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

Whatever. But Allah is one syllable. When you study its meaning. For this reason, there are no idols

00:25:08--> 00:25:23

in history of the world, or kings, or people who call themselves gods, or people or things or you refer to as God has ever been named Allah, ever, you search it, because it cannot make sense.

00:25:24--> 00:25:30

For ounce that Lord, he said, Allah, Allah means that a god which is worshipped.

00:25:32--> 00:25:33

You can say Allah, Allah,

00:25:34--> 00:25:38

but Allah, you can't say Allah, Allah is just one so we can't do that.

00:25:41--> 00:26:02

Even the chorus people, the Arab, non Muslim Moorish, the Arab idolaters, at the time of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, they had many gods, that they will many statues, not one of them could be named Allah, because it made no sense. They had one statue which is a goddess to them called a let similar to the sounding of Allah, they called it a lead.

00:26:03--> 00:26:25

And lead to them meant the daughter of God, the daughter of Allah. That's what it meant. When they said alette also Allah Rosa, and also is another name they use of a goddess which they worship was also the daughter of Allah. And minette manette was another third goddess which the Quran people worship. They called her also the daughter of Allah.

00:26:27--> 00:26:38

Why the daughter of a lot because they acknowledge that there was an Allah is Allah. They always said Allah, if you were to ask them who created the heavens and they'll say Allah, they wouldn't say a lat oil oza or manette

00:26:39--> 00:26:45

How do I know that they that they believe that they were Daughters of Allah because Allah says in Surah najem

00:26:48--> 00:26:50

Allah says it in certain net najem

00:26:51--> 00:27:06

or item aleteia will erza woman net 3030 Ohara Allah como de Carvalho de tilaka, even cosmatos visa, this is in sorta Najib, he's debating them. He's saying to them, you know your Arabic language. And you know what you are worshipping here.

00:27:08--> 00:27:15

See the lat and the Rosa which they worship and the manette, which is the third type of female goddess they worship.

00:27:16--> 00:27:49

You want for yourself sons, but to Allah, you give him daughters. In other words, the Arabs in especially in college, they love to have sons. And there was a practice among a group you know, among them where they used to bury daughters when they were born, a very minute you know, amount were buried their sons as well but that was unheard of almost. But the there was a norm of burying the gills because of you know, her being a bad thing. So Allah is telling them, so you name statues,

00:27:50--> 00:28:06

that mean daughters of God, but to yourselves you want sons as though you are better than God, you are better than Allah. You prefer yourself sons and you give me your daughters. When you think the sons are better than the daughters as the what what are you trying to say here? Do you honor me? Or do you not honor me?

00:28:08--> 00:28:17

Are you making sense? So you're not making sense? You gave me daughters? When you honor sons? Well, you should have given me sons then if you really honor me, but obviously you're making up things.

00:28:19--> 00:28:33

If they had value daughters, they would have said to Allah, males, sons and to us our daughters, but that's beside the point. Allah is showing them the contradiction tilaka even Chris Martin, Liza, this is an unbalanced BAM balanced,

00:28:36--> 00:28:38

unbalanced formula, Colossus.

00:28:41--> 00:28:44

Ibrahim alayhis salaam, left the land of Syria as well.

00:28:46--> 00:28:51

And he went headed off to another place called missile, Egypt.

00:28:52--> 00:28:54

Egypt, there was a king there.

00:28:56--> 00:29:01

But before I tell you about Egypt, a last one of the eila had had a plan.

00:29:03--> 00:29:05

For the Prophet Lord Allah, his Salah.

00:29:07--> 00:29:15

Lo tala is Salam on the way was ordered through inspiration. gibreel Allah is lm that he has a mission to deliver as a prophet

00:29:16--> 00:29:19

in the land of the people of Sodom.

00:29:20--> 00:29:22

Have you ever heard of Sodom and Gomorrah?

00:29:23--> 00:29:28

These two tribes in seven cities made up of seven cities,

00:29:29--> 00:29:37

near Jordan, in a sea which is now caught now there is a sea there, but once it was land, now it is called the Dead Sea, Alabama, you

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

need the edges of Jordan.

00:29:42--> 00:29:57

We're gonna get back to his story later after the story, but on him at least send him but I just want to show you that for him. There was a lot of a sudden departure departed, and went on his mission to the people of Sodom, who favored whose men favored men

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

as the intimate partner

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

Instead of women,

00:30:02--> 00:30:16

homosexuals that cold today, so he went to those types of people to try and call them to the right path. In the meantime, Ibrahim alayhis salam left with his wife, Sarah, to Egypt, Muslim.

00:30:18--> 00:30:19

And you had a tyrant King

00:30:20--> 00:30:27

Sarah alayhis salam, the wife of Ibrahim alayhis salam was extraordinarily beautiful.

00:30:28--> 00:30:42

In fact, our scholars say that she was the most beautiful woman on earth in her time. And some say in fact, she was the second most beautiful woman after her work, after her work

00:30:43--> 00:30:53

as a mother, where the wife of Adam Allison was the most beautiful woman then came after her, they said, Sarah, Allison,

00:30:57--> 00:30:58

the king of Egypt,

00:30:59--> 00:31:01

like to have beautiful women.

00:31:04--> 00:31:07

Whenever I said, I'm entered the land of Egypt, in its deserts,

00:31:09--> 00:31:20

a group of people, soldiers of the king, they went back to their king, and they said, we have just seen two strangers into our land. There is a man and a woman.

00:31:21--> 00:31:24

And she is one of the most beautiful women we have ever seen.

00:31:25--> 00:31:40

The king said to them, Go and ask what the relationship of this man is to her. And if he says that he is a husband, then kill him and bring the woman to me. I want her for myself.

00:31:46--> 00:31:47

So they went.

00:31:48--> 00:31:49

But along the way

00:31:51--> 00:31:57

gibreel Allah Salam had come down to Abraham first, and he sent him and said to him the situation.

00:31:58--> 00:32:03

So I brought my son turned to sell. And he said to her, the following words,

00:32:04--> 00:32:08

he said to her, you see, this land that we are in?

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

is said by Allah.

00:32:15--> 00:32:21

There isn't a single believer on the face of the earth except for me and you.

00:32:22--> 00:32:24

And obviously loot Allah is Allah.

00:32:26--> 00:32:33

So when these people come to you, and if they asked you, who am I to you tell them that I am your brother? a hook?

00:32:35--> 00:32:38

Now we have a problem. Is this a lie? Or is it not a lie?

00:32:42--> 00:32:43

Well,

00:32:44--> 00:32:45

it was a lie.

00:32:46--> 00:32:47

It was a lie.

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

But

00:32:50--> 00:33:01

because obviously it will, he is her brother in Islam. But it's still a lie. Because a lie is when you say something to someone making them think in a particular way.

00:33:02--> 00:33:04

When you don't mean it in that way.

00:33:06--> 00:33:11

It makes someone thinking a particular way deliberately, it means you've lied. When it's not really that way.

00:33:12--> 00:33:18

He could have said, I am her brother in Islam, and I'll understand what that means. They'll ask him another question. He said, Tell him I am your brother.

00:33:19--> 00:33:38

For that will kill us then. And why is he saying there's no other Muslims but us? If we go, the Dow of a low stop. That's basically what he's saying. So we want to protect the Dow and not our bodies. That's why we want to protect ourselves. Yeah. In that sense, you are allowed to lie in the case of necessity.

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

Or Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:33:42--> 00:33:59

said lemmya Ibrahim lfls, aka Tibet in our case, betin kolu hanaa de la had to him in Nyssa cream or co loofah loofah. Allah who Kabira whom Heather will call to hooli. Sarah in the

00:34:01--> 00:34:15

he sets a lot of asylum, which is narrated by Abu huraira. He said, are also some illallah wa sallam never lied, except for three lies in his life. He said, The first lie which he lied,

00:34:17--> 00:34:33

was when he was asked to attend the gods of his people. And he said I am sick. Remember when we said I am sick, he wasn't really sick. And when he said it is the biggest of them who did it when he said the big statue killed them or destroyed them? And when he said about Sarah, She is my sister.

00:34:35--> 00:34:59

Because also Sam said about Abraham, I said, I'm entered into a town where there was a tyrant King. And the rule I was told Abraham has come with the most beautiful woman tonight. That Tyron king sent for him and asked who is with you? And it reminded him said She is my sister. He asked him for him to bring her. So he went to bring her and said to her

00:35:00--> 00:35:20

Do not believe, believe me. I have told him that you were my sister, but don't believe me. There is no one believer on earth apart from you and me. When she entered upon him, he came forward to hold her, the king so I'm going to tell you the story now. Every time I sent him now he's waiting for her. He left and he went to

00:35:22--> 00:35:38

and maka Desa. The land the Holy Land, which what is the Holy Land, or Azusa Salam tells us that the Holy Land is Philistine, Palestine, alkaloids, Oxon, that's where he went. Sarah went with the soldiers to the king, and Allah subhanaw taala obviously will look after

00:35:40--> 00:35:47

when he came in the process and tells us when the king came to extend his arm out to touch Sarah, alone in the bedroom.

00:35:50--> 00:36:08

She stood up to make evolution will do. And then she prayed to Allah. She said, Let me make evolution had a form of odo. And she prayed to Allah subhanaw taala in the way that they were taught, and she said, Oh ALLAH and her daughter, if you know that I believed in you in contact Allah, and

00:36:09--> 00:36:13

called me and tubik That's what she said in Arabic.

00:36:15--> 00:36:25

Alone man quintet Allah, and ni mn tubik Well, bureau sunic wa Santo Faraji. Illa Allah zoji Fela to sunlit, al al careful.

00:36:27--> 00:36:42

Our love, if you know that I have believed in you and your messenger meaning Abraham at Esalen and I have guarded my chastity, my chastity, my date my chastity from anyone except to my husband,

00:36:44--> 00:36:47

then did not let this disbeliever have power over me.

00:36:50--> 00:36:51

What happened?

00:36:54--> 00:37:00

He then could not move his arm towards him. He couldn't.

00:37:01--> 00:37:09

And he plunged into the water and started striking with his legs. And he he became a little bit crazy what's happened to me, I can't touch it.

00:37:12--> 00:37:19

Sarah and and also he was like, he was about to die, striking with his legs, what's wrong with me, and he couldn't touch it was gonna die.

00:37:20--> 00:37:45

Sarah Alia samaveda says prompts as Adam said that Sarah was afraid that if he died, the people will say that she killed him, and then she will be killed. So then she released him, she said, Oh, Allah, please release him. So he was released. He tried a second time, and she made the die again. And he was paralyzed with his arm, and he began to stamp, he plunged into the water as though something's wrong with him. And he was,

00:37:46--> 00:37:54

you know, acting like as if he's dying, going crazy. So then she feared against our law release him, he went a third time and the same thing happened to him.

00:37:55--> 00:38:08

And then he said to her, if you release me the third time, I will let you go. And I will be generous to you. I'll be generous to you. So she made the draw. And truly,

00:38:09--> 00:38:12

he did let her go. He freed her.

00:38:13--> 00:38:39

And he said to his soldiers, get her away from me. While I this woman is not a human being she is a shaitana. She is Satan, the devil or something, get her away from me. And he gave her wealth. And he also gave her one of his servants. She was a lady, a pious, good lady with great character, but she was captured from war and became a servant. Her name was hajer alayhis salam.

00:38:40--> 00:39:15

And he gave her to her as her own servant. In those days, there were servants and slaves. It was a universal thing, except that Muslims obviously treat their slaves with honor and respect. And they don't let them free so that I'm become public property. When it was universal practice, you couldn't let the slaves free. You had to declare ownership because they would be harmed and become public property to the world. Today is a different case, because we don't have this thing. But if a war did happen, slavery would return and this is how we treat slaves. We declare ownership to them, and we look after them. Otherwise, they'll become public property, and they'll be harmed, or they resort to

00:39:15--> 00:39:19

things like prostitution to live. So we actually protect them in that manner.

00:39:20--> 00:39:57

hanjour alayhis salam was released, and the reason why he wanted to release it was not because he really wanted to give it to her, but hazard was giving him extreme problems. She didn't like the king, and she he wasn't getting anything out of her. So he gave her to salah and said, I don't have any use with this woman either. She's similar to you. So he gave her and she went to Palestine, wishing you Ibrahim alayhis salam was when she entered upon him. She found him praying. And when he finished prayer, he looked at her and he said in the Hebrew language in the language close to Hebrew because that's the language they spoke. He said to her

00:39:58--> 00:39:58

ma

00:40:00--> 00:40:19

Ma What happened? What happened? She said Allah subhanho wa Taala released me, and this is what happened. He said, we live here in oxide, this land of holyland, Allah Subhana Allah has blessed it. And insha Allah, we live our lives here forever. And we hope that last time brings about a goodness here.

00:40:21--> 00:40:29

And so they live their brothers and sisters. I lost my dad tells us, Anne was dying, you know, Bill saw that he was signed.

00:40:31--> 00:40:34

And seek help impatience and pray.

00:40:35--> 00:40:37

We're in luck.

00:40:38--> 00:40:39

We're in,

00:40:40--> 00:40:41

tune in.

00:40:43--> 00:40:50

And the prayer and patience is actually heavy. It's a burden on everyone except for those

00:40:52--> 00:40:53

who practice

00:40:54--> 00:41:27

consciousness with a last note that when they pray the think of Allah, those are developed to Allah. They're not distracted with other worldly things. Distracted as in their heart is distracted. We'll talk about hulshof select another time. It's a total different class, but those who monitor their prayer and they pray sincerely from the heart, the prayer is not a burden upon them and patience is not a burden upon them. And so was Abraham and Abraham and Sarah and Lord and Hazzard later on, they all used to seek help in their prayer and patience, and this is how they were able to live their lives.

00:41:31--> 00:41:37

So now we have hanjour alayhis salam, she was a Coptic girl.

00:41:38--> 00:41:41

cop, the cops were a race.

00:41:42--> 00:41:47

And today we have the coptics we live in Egypt. Unfortunately, they didn't worship

00:41:48--> 00:41:51

Allah Spano dias diala, alone.

00:41:52--> 00:41:54

They are a sect of Christianity.

00:41:55--> 00:41:56

And they are the coptics

00:41:59--> 00:42:03

she was among the Coptic girls of Egypt and

00:42:04--> 00:42:06

she was the servant of Sara Lee's

00:42:09--> 00:42:10

Time passed.

00:42:12--> 00:42:15

And Ibrahim alayhis salam grew older.

00:42:17--> 00:42:21

And he gave out to the people. Hardly anyone believed.

00:42:22--> 00:42:25

And Sarah alayhis salaam grew old.

00:42:26--> 00:42:32

Abraham Allison was about 80 years old at that time, and Sarah a little bit younger, 70 years old or so.

00:42:33--> 00:42:40

Probably a bit younger than that. And obviously, they discovered that Sarah Sam could not give birth she cannot carry.

00:42:42--> 00:42:44

Any child cannot carry a fetus in her womb.

00:42:47--> 00:43:09

And she knew this problem. And Ibrahim alayhis salam was longing for a son, why his son, a son is one who is able to carry become the heir of his father, a daughter, marry someone and belongs to that family after that, a son holds the name of the family. This is the norm. And

00:43:10--> 00:43:22

he longed for a son to carry on his message after him, which is quite natural. Any human being longs for children. Allah says this in the Quran, Allah Allah will be known as Xena to higher to dunya wealth.

00:43:23--> 00:43:24

And sons

00:43:25--> 00:43:27

are another verse children as well

00:43:28--> 00:43:51

are the decoration of this world. You have a son or a daughter, you have wealth. They're the things people desire in the world. I know some people don't want don't want children and they say we don't want children. But when they do have children, their heart opens up to them, and they become everything. Especially people that don't have a Lost Planet Allah in their mind. They don't worship Allah subhanaw taala The only thing they need for is their children. Isn't that right?

00:43:53--> 00:44:11

Anyone doesn't believe in Allah. At least they always have the children they say I want to leave something behind. Otherwise my life is purposeless. I just live and die and that's it. I don't leave anything behind. Who can you leave the best with behind is your children because you know the closest and they will carry your teachings with loyalty.

00:44:12--> 00:44:14

So I brought him out a certain long person.

00:44:16--> 00:44:18

And he called upon a Lost Planet Allah for his son.

00:44:20--> 00:44:23

And something happened a miracle. Sara alayhis salaam

00:44:25--> 00:44:25

said

00:44:28--> 00:44:30

she felt sorry for him and said,

00:44:31--> 00:44:36

I have freed my servant Tasha. And I offer her to you to marry her.

00:44:39--> 00:44:45

It's quite strange that a woman offers another woman to her husband, her beloved, to marry a second wife.

00:44:47--> 00:44:58

But she did it for the purpose that she felt sorry for her husband. And she knew he wanted an air. So she gave him Hazara Allah has sent him from her kindness and her piety

00:45:00--> 00:45:19

Subhan Allah and he married her, has her alayhis salaam as a second wife and he kept Sal Subhana Allah even though Sarah as Sam did, she is the one that offered and gave the her servant woman to her husband. Jealousy still existed. This is the nature of women.

00:45:21--> 00:45:24

It says in one hand is choosing Buhari that

00:45:25--> 00:45:27

they lived in two different

00:45:28--> 00:45:40

huts or tents or or two different health homes. And they were sent. And when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam used to visit her or she'd gone visit him or go to see him.

00:45:41--> 00:46:21

footsteps were left behind. And Sarah ordered that has her wear something long especializada that went long to the ground, that when she walked, it covered away her footprints, she didn't want to see a footprints that they have been meeting, or the footprints of Abraham Ellison said she didn't want to see that. She knew but you do want to see, just I don't want anything about it. So those are the jealousies always there. It's natural for women to be jealous like that, in that sense. And men should understand whether you've got two wives or one wife. Even if you have one wife, women will always have this type of jealousy, this type of

00:46:23--> 00:46:36

jealousy based on love in the wrong place. Women and men have a jealous towards their wives as well. But their jealousy is more jealousy of honor, loyalty like that. The woman's jealousy is more of his mind, in the sense of

00:46:37--> 00:46:40

how can I say it and more of it? Not so serious sense.

00:46:43--> 00:46:49

Men's jealousy is more like a serious one one that will draw the sword to kill the other guy for dummies more like

00:46:50--> 00:47:01

fighting verbally or making an issue out of something which is not really a big issue. Men can make an issue out of it too. But the senses are a little bit different. They're different in their jealousy.

00:47:02--> 00:47:11

So the data remains in the women even after they do something which they try to accept like what Sara did, she gave him the wife yet she still remain jealous.

00:47:13--> 00:47:21

Allah gave her gave Ibrahim Ali Salim his first son is married alayhis salam from Hashem

00:47:22--> 00:47:38

It's mine. alayhis salam was made a prophet and a messenger. So prophet dinero soon and nebby, enter soon, there are prophets and there are messengers, and messenger is a higher degree than a prophet. Every messenger is also a prophet, but not every prophet is also a messenger.

00:47:40--> 00:47:50

Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was both a messenger and a prophet low delay Salam was a prophet. Ismail Ali Salam was both a prophet and a messenger. It says in sort of medium in the Quran.

00:47:51--> 00:48:01

A messenger comes with some new laws. A prophet carries on the message of the previous prophet without any new laws, additions or changes.

00:48:05--> 00:48:06

So he was a prophet and a messenger.

00:48:08--> 00:48:12

This is a great reward, great blessing for Ibrahim alayhis salam.

00:48:14--> 00:48:19

And he made him a noble, pious son of Ibrahim Ali Salah.

00:48:20--> 00:48:25

Something happened. We all know the story. Ismail Ali Salam grew up.

00:48:27--> 00:48:35

Actually, he was still an infant before he grew up. And after waiting for 80 or 90 years of his life with his son,

00:48:36--> 00:48:55

Allah orders Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam to do something amazing. beyond any person's faculties of knowledge on any person's senses, unimaginable. He says to Ibrahim alayhis, salaam, he orders him that he must take his wife

00:48:56--> 00:49:02

and his only son, his man who has been waiting for for over 80 years into the middle of the desert,

00:49:03--> 00:49:04

middle of nowhere

00:49:05--> 00:49:12

far away, leave them there by themselves and returned back to public policy.

00:49:14--> 00:49:21

No questions asked it will lie by myself did not ask why the order of a law came and that's enough. Unless

00:49:22--> 00:49:42

you ask a person Why? Either for you to understand because you're not very confident in the other person's explanation. Or you think that the other person may not understand so maybe you can understand and explain to him why it shouldn't be a good decision. But with a lot of what Allah doesn't understand Allah knows everything. Allah doesn't make the proper decisions. Allah is not merciful.

00:49:43--> 00:49:59

Allah is everything if He's the oldest, how does he understand that? Allah knows the best that there's no there's no questions about it. If you believe in him, if he tells you something, it's it has to be good for you. There's something out of no questions asked. Why, why is it is actually a question that can lead to proof

00:50:01--> 00:50:07

Unless you just want to understand yourself to know a lot more, to appreciate your religion was a different story.

00:50:08--> 00:50:19

He took them when I did not know what the plan was when I reached the middle of the desert, which is where Mecca is today, right near the Kaaba, which built today there's nothing there but

00:50:20--> 00:50:58

they settled down with a bit of water and bit of food. Suddenly, Ibrahim alayhis salam stood up, turned his back and began to walk the other way. Sarah Hatcher walked up to him and said, Yeah, Abraham, he didn't reply. Abraham. He didn't reply. He kept walking. She knew something was wrong. She said, Are you leaving us? He kept walking. Then she asked petrochina were you leaving us to Abraham, who you're leaving us to in the middle of nowhere? Abraham I said um, did not answer. He kept looking to the ground, not even looking at and walking straight ahead. Finally, after a while he stood stood her place. And she came up with a question.

00:51:00--> 00:51:00

She said,

00:51:02--> 00:51:10

Yeah, Abraham, she asked him a low America behead? Is it Allah who commanded you to do this?

00:51:12--> 00:51:15

All of them said was Azure, yes.

00:51:17--> 00:51:18

I also saw Salim said that Allah says in the Hadith and could see and in the history of Omni AB dB, Allah says, I am the way my servant assumes of me.
