00:00:01--> 00:00:08

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was so happy he urged my

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

brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:00:17--> 00:00:19

We are speaking about the prophets of Allah.

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

And now we have reached the part about Ibrahim alayhis salaam

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

and the building of the Kaaba.

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

We've already spoken about part of the building of the Kaaba and we've given some advice in relation to people who go to Hajj or Umrah, what to expect what to do and not to do in relation to the tawaf and other certain

00:00:42--> 00:00:58

Islamic rites during Hajj. At the moment it happens to be the Hajj season hamdulillah. And before I begin today's lecture about Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam, the remainder of it, I'd like to remind everyone that from tomorrow

00:01:00--> 00:01:06

starts the first 10 days of the hedger the hedger is the Islamic month

00:01:07--> 00:01:18

is the month of the Hijri calendar. It is the final month of the Hijri calendar. And in any in our dm we have four months that are called Asheville harem, they are the four months

00:01:20--> 00:01:46

of the of the four sanction months in which rewards are doubled. And acts of cruelty and violence are shunned even more, but they are especially in Mecca in the sacred place. in Mecca in the in the harem, were nice for months, no killing of even an end or the cutting off of a tree is permitted.

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

But the hedger is one of them. So we have the

00:01:51--> 00:01:51

we have

00:01:55--> 00:02:20

show where we will clear the hedger and mojarra. These the four months they'll hedge at the moment is one of those holy months and in the first 10 days, it is a sooner for anyone to carry out the following things if you are not doing Hajj and obviously we're all residing here now there are the following highly recommended acts of similar to do number one too fast the whole

00:02:22--> 00:02:37

days until the day before, a lot. So there are nine days before either we call them 10 days because up to a lotta they are the special 10 days,

00:02:38--> 00:02:44

which ends with the celebration of a lot harder a lot of secondary celebration of the sacrifice of Ibrahim Ali Sena

00:02:46--> 00:03:15

you may 1 them all and it is highly recommended sooner or you can fast only the nice day. That is the day of arafah the day when the people in hajj are in a place called out of you know the Hajj, but also Salim said Alhaji arafa Hodge is all about arafa. That's where they stand in the mcda. And the shaitan says he throws dust over his head as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us and he says all my work of leading this servant astray and making earn sins.

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

All my work is destroyed today.

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

So they have RFA is extremely special day.

00:03:23--> 00:03:28

So you can fast that day, followed by a lot how you celebrate

00:03:30--> 00:03:36

the other highly recommended soon and I say it as a highly recommended sooner although there is a difference among the scholars.

00:03:38--> 00:04:25

Some say it's compulsory to do this and others say it's a highly recommended optional act, what is it? It is the slaughter the Altair or otherwise called as quote a ban the or to the slaughter of any type of cattle, slaughter a cow or shape. Or you can slaughter a goat. So these are but the common one is a sheep. Any type of cattle you can slaughter as an adult here. So it's not only for the people on Hajj it's compulsory for the people on Hajj to do but what about for the residents? It is, as I said a difference of opinion. But in the least those who do say it's a highly recommended so not tell us that it is much safer that if a person is able to do the Altair, he should do it. He

00:04:25--> 00:04:39

should do it to be on the safe side. And it is it is hated disliked to not to do it. So whoever is able to afford to do an OTA they just have to do one on behalf of themselves and their immediate family, their wife and children.

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

If you are going to do the Altair

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

which you should.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

And by the way, I won have a Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim who says whoever is able to make the Oto which is this hadith is a Muslim who is able to do the old hair and doesn't do the old hair. Then did not come to our prayer on it.

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

Don't come to LA acaba, number salena of La Crosse, Atlanta don't come to our prayer. I pray

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

that's one of the hottest from salons and if you're able to,

00:05:12--> 00:05:45

if you're going to do it, then the promise of lies lm said, which is also in Sahih, Muslim, this hadith in Sahih, Muslim whoever wants to do an OTA then failure hosemann offer he will ashati do not clip any of your nails or your hair. And this is a traditional form since the time of Rahim Allah is lm, a form of humility before a lost power dialer. And it is something that you do to remind you of this special occasion, you know how they do sometimes good idea of shaving your hair for cancer day, or for breast cancer or something like that.

00:05:46--> 00:05:53

So this is don't clip your nails or hair for 10 days. So till you actually do your hair.

00:05:54--> 00:06:26

I say 10 days because usually people that do the OTA on night, when do you do the OTA the sacrifice is done after the Salat of eight. It is not done before, like the traditional way of Adolf Hitler. We actually do we pay as a cat or you You send us a cat before they ate prey. In the special thing about law is the sacrifice. But the sacrifice is actually done after the eight pray and you've got four days to do it. So a lot higher is celebrated for four days. And the Altair is done within those four days.

00:06:28--> 00:06:41

So you don't clip your nails or cut your hair. Okay, so a lot a lot of people don't know this until after you've done your hair. Before you ask the question. Maybe I'll have the answer for you shall because I haven't finished it.

00:06:42--> 00:07:15

In here in Australia, we don't A lot of people don't actually slaughter the altar themselves. You send them money to the masjid or overseas for someone else to do it on your behalf. This is okay this is fine. So long as you are sure that the masjid he was doing with the organization or the person you are sending it to, is going to do the autopia after the Salat of the aid because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Whoever This is a Hadith, also a Muslim whoever does the oath here before the Salat of their aid before then it will not be counted as an oath here as a sacrificial.

00:07:17--> 00:07:18

Right.

00:07:19--> 00:07:22

But it will be counted as a normal sadaqa for his family.

00:07:23--> 00:07:41

He just fed fed his family normal as in feeds them normally meet. So you should do another one. He said. So last time, he said let him do another one after the salad, alright, so make sure they do it for you. And if you can find out when they're going to do it, then based on that knowledge, you can start clipping your nails in here after that,

00:07:42--> 00:08:20

according to the best of your knowledge. And the process Allah says now you I feel alone I've said that. When Allah says in the Quran to ask a lot longer letter in a sinner Astana, don't, a lot, don't don't hold us accountable if we forget or make a mistake. So you can make a mistake by not getting this particular, you know, when this right so when someone does the old hair for you, and according to your knowledge, they're going to do it on the first day at this time. But then I ended up doing it the second day, and you had gone and clipped your nails and cut your hair. That's fine. inshallah it's not. It's not your problem. So religion is easy. Was that your question? I Oh, okay.

00:08:23--> 00:09:00

So they said, however, what if you do clip your nails and cut your hair. They said if you do it mistakenly, our scholars say it's fine. Just like a person accidentally eating in Ramadan, then it's fine. There's no problem. But if a person deliberately cuts their nails or their hair during that time when they've intended. Basically, you promised a law firm out here and you're gonna carry it out in the traditional way of the profits by not clipping your nails or hair and then you go ahead and do it deliberately. Then they say, there's not there's nothing you don't have to do anything except for so far, you make us still far. ask Allah to forgive you sincerely and then do it again.

00:09:00--> 00:09:14

It's a sin. If you deliberate if you intended with a last pantile according to this tradition, and then you break it. They say it's becomes a sin. And that's the proper opinion. And Allah knows best. But what you do is make us different and then do it again inshallah.

00:09:15--> 00:09:50

And at the same time, clipping your nails and hair, makes you become a little bit partnered with the people who are unhedged, as if you're on a harem, because the people on has when they're in something called a harem, they can't click the nails or cut the hair, but extra to that they can't put perfume on and they can't involve themselves in intimate relationships for a prescribed period of time. I'm not going to go into detail you don't need to know because you're not going on Hajj now. But it makes us share that moment. Don't clip your hair or nails. Similar if you're not on Hajj, but you're in the occasion. So the occasion and all of that makes you remember, and this is

00:09:50--> 00:10:00

one of the Subhanallah one of the innovative ways of keeping people in tuned with things. You know, when you went to a special occasion you carry

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

Something, it's nothing big but you say, shave your hair. It's blue jeans day, pink ribbon for breast cancer day, and so on. So, in Islam, Allah recognizes this don't clip your hair or nail out of humility to our last one Tyler in commemoration of this sacrificial time and this holy time so it makes you become a better person insha Allah, reminding you away from his worldly distractions every now and then, we need sometimes we always need things to remind us again and again other than the five daily prayers other than Ramadan fasting, other than the three days of every month where we fast 13 1415 other than this and other than that, we always need reminders human beings are very

00:10:42--> 00:10:48

weak and forgetful. In fact, we are called insane, which comes from the word ons or the CN.

00:10:49--> 00:10:56

Ns is probably which means to cut, you know, we love companionship, or to forget.

00:10:57--> 00:10:58

So we forget for people.

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

Having said this, we move on now to the occasion of Ibrahim alayhis salam, the building of the Kaaba, him and his son Ismail Allah He Mr. Lamb built it. And Allah is the one that commanded it. The House of Allah the cabinet is the first house that has been when we say house wood, I mean the house that you live in with three bedrooms. House means a lot of things. But it is a building that is represented is representative of the obedience of our last panel and a lot of COVID his house, his house, it is the holy place that illustrata recognizes as very important.

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

And the law tells us in the Quran,

00:11:44--> 00:11:48

Allah will never shun regime in a way elevating

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

in the back.

00:11:56--> 00:12:13

Indeed the first house appointed for people is the one at Bacca, Bacca is in Mecca, blessed and blessed and the guidance for the worlds. This is the first house in which allows cold the people of the worlds the nations of the world to flock to it in obedience to Allah.

00:12:16--> 00:12:20

The Christians, the Jews, the pagans of the Arabs,

00:12:22--> 00:12:31

the pagans used to worship the idols at the time of the Arabs operation the others hamaca law, they claim to follow the religion of Abraham, Allah, his center

00:12:32--> 00:12:46

and the Christians on Abraham and the Jews on Abraham Allison Of course, and obviously the Muslims. Ibrahim Ali Salaam came before the Torah and came before the engine. So you can before any mention of Judaism or Christianity

00:12:48--> 00:13:05

as for the word Muslim, it's always been the means submitted to Allah. So a Christian can be a Muslim and a Jew can be a Muslim, and all the prophets that ever came with Muslim Muslim as in not a name, but in action description that was submitted to Allah and Abraham on Islam came before all of them

00:13:06--> 00:13:07

and all of them claim

00:13:09--> 00:13:19

that their religion belongs to Abraham and a certain Allah refutes that in the Quran. In all of them claimed to be followers of Ibrahim, but Allah Allah says, Yeah, hello Nikita

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

are people of the book Jews and Christians?

00:13:24--> 00:13:40

Why are you claiming Rahim being a sin and being among your religion when he came before your religion when he came before the Torah to ninja? How can you say that he is that we are like him or he is of our faith? The Christians say in the Quran, Allah says the Christians say Abraham is out and the Jews say Abraham is out.

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

Yet their religions differ.

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

So who is he really with?

00:13:48--> 00:14:02

Whenever I my son came before them all even how can you claim he is of your religion? He is not a Christian or a Jew Allah sometimes says McKenna Ibrahim Rio de la serrania Yeah, Abraham s&m was never a Christian. And he was never a Jew. Because he came before them all.

00:14:03--> 00:14:16

When I can, but what he what was he listen to this, or lacking can hanifin Muslim in america and i mean and mushrikeen as Allah says in the Quran, but he was on monotheist. hanifa and complete

00:14:18--> 00:14:31

obedience to the one true God, Muslim and a complete and true submitter. That's what the word Muslim means. woman can mean and mushrikeen and he was never ever among the idolaters he never or among the ones who make partners with Allah.

00:14:34--> 00:14:54

The Christian is made partners with a lot of Jews medpartners Allah The idolaters of the other pagan errors medpartners with Allah, in fact, are also salaallah alayhi wa sallam Hadith which is in Bukhari, he entered or Susa Salim entered the Kaaba on the day of the fat of Mecca when they opened Mecca and I came back and took over

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

with peace and no bloodshed was was made on that day. They opened in the end

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

To the Kaaba House. And in there. In the Hadith it says he saw pictures, pictures carved up paintings of what seems to what they thought impressions of Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam and his son his smile, and they were doing this act of tossing arrows. And that was an act of the Arab pagans where they said that it was a sign of good luck please to bring the arrows and put them in a certain way. They throw them or they play with them in a certain way. And any way that they pointed, gave them signs, good luck, signs of bad luck, signs, omens, good omens and bad omens. And this is Sherrick to believe in arrows or superstitious beliefs that they have powers of some sort which can

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

tell you give you direction about certain things.

00:15:46--> 00:15:58

Is [???]can Allah because only Allah can do that. And they had pictures of Abraham in his mind suggesting that they did what they what the pagans are doing, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he replied by saying woe upon them.

00:15:59--> 00:16:11

Never was Ibrahim or his son is my image raccoon. They never did any act of sharing and never did they ever use this act of throwing arrows, throwing arrows for good luck.

00:16:14--> 00:16:29

They all claim to be followers of Ibrahim Ali Senate. But as a Muslim, we are followers of Ibrahim I sent him truly because we are true monotheists maybe not all Muslims followers, they do share it but Islam itself is Dean when you read the Quran and Hadith there is no ship as you all know.

00:16:31--> 00:16:33

So he built this garba and he made it

00:16:35--> 00:16:47

he made it out to a lot this man kept on saying asked me a lot Oh Allah make this place a place of sanction, a sanction place a place of security. And the Lord truly gave him that Allah says in the Quran

00:16:49--> 00:16:52

was what if john Elway button in

00:16:56--> 00:16:56

either

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

one hidden in a

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

smelly Tahira at any

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

lit

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

up no caffeine.

00:17:15--> 00:17:58

And remember, when Ibrahim was put to test by his Lord with certain words which he fulfilled, Allah said, I will make you a leader to the people who pleaded and also from my offspring, Allah said, but my covenant does not extend to evildoers. Any Ibrahim Ali Salim said Oh Allah make my children their children's children, great leaders. They are called the children of Israel. And among the Arabs who were from Israel, a senate Allah said I will do so I'll make them leaders except for the wrongdoers that evildoers. So Allah actually, and and then he said, and we made the sacred mosque, sacred Masjid, the Kaaba and Mecca, a place of assembly and sanctuary for people and take the station of

00:17:58--> 00:18:26

Abraham as a place of prayer. And we covenanted with Abraham and dismay, that they should purify my house, the sacred house for those who encompass it, and for those who retire to it for devotion and prayer, and for those who bow down and for those who prostrate themselves there in so the curb America is a place of absolute worship and obedience. It has always been since the time of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and still till today, until the last hour, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:18:27--> 00:18:41

that never will will Mecca will the harem, the sanctuary of the Kaaba, never will it be empty of people, until the last hour, there will always be people in the night or day,

00:18:42--> 00:18:59

winter or summer, any day, weekend or weekdays. There will always be someone in the worshipping or doing something it has always been an always been to the last hour and truly Subhana Allah in the year. I forgot what she have hinted at after the prompts are synonyms death.

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

There was a companion and I think his name was saddam, who saw their loved one who he was the only companion who made tawaf around the Kaaba, swimming,

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

swimming.

00:19:12--> 00:19:21

He swam, making tawaf around the Kaaba, how did he swim? Because there was a flood, a flood happened, everybody left.

00:19:23--> 00:19:38

And he stayed in there. He said, Well, I will not leave and he made his to left swimming. So the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim no one the cargo around it, the harem will never be empty of people to the last hour. And here are some of your cars everyone left in the flood, he swam around.

00:19:40--> 00:19:58

Now you've we've got satellite life satellites, and you can look it up for those who have that. And you can see night and day there are always people in there always. And even at the time before the prophesize lm came, there was idolatry, yes, but still, they essentially they had that place as an honor. Listen to this Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:20:01--> 00:20:02

He said,

00:20:05--> 00:20:07

to hire a shadow there lohana

00:20:09--> 00:20:24

I want to, first of all before I say this Hades to show you that the harem of the Kaaba has always been a place of true worship and sincerity, even with the type of idolatry, that people feared to do Haram in there to do forbidden things. Listen to this.

00:20:26--> 00:20:36

The Kaaba remained for a long time, in the same shape with the same structure built by Ibrahim Ali Salim who knows the structure of the original karma by Abraham. Allison, do you know how it was built?

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

up the hacking.

00:20:42--> 00:21:09

It's one word have yet another round. So what was the shape of the cover? It was rectangular, yes. Now it's square cube. It was cube shape before it was rectangular shaped. And yes, as the brother said, you have that little curve. If you've seen it built around the cabin extended place and you got to make a toy for around it not inside of it. Because the cabin was actually originally rectangular. And later on, something happened. The cover was made into a cube

00:21:10--> 00:21:25

tell you how it was made into a cube at the time of quarter the kurush, the Arab pagan Arabs, the idolaters over there. What happened was the Kaaba was starting to run down. And like any other structure, any building, obviously it loses form and you need to rebuild you need to renovate it.

00:21:27--> 00:22:05

But if you remember what I said last week, that the year of the elephant, when the king of Ethiopia Abra came to destroy the Kaaba, what happened to him and his soldiers. That was the year in which the prophet SAW Selim was born, Allah sent upon them by being birds, and through their pond them stones of fire, and he wouldn't let them destroy the cabin. So later on, when the club I wanted to be rebuilt at the time of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. He was at that time before he was a prophet, it was about in his, in his 20s, in his in his in his mid 20s, Salah Salem or his or his early 30s. And the cabinets we renovated the leaders of garage came, and they were afraid to

00:22:05--> 00:22:10

renovate the cabinet to rebuild. They were afraid that maybe Allah will send upon them birds like that with with stones of fire.

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

But they encourage themselves to do so.

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

And what happened was, they gathered each other, and they said, you know, most of our wealth, it comes from

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

forbidden forbidden trade.

00:22:26--> 00:22:44

You know, we use people, we, we take the money for the idols, and we we charge interest on our money and you know, some of the stuff we've loaded away from other tribes and we've sold it we let's admit it, okay, let's face it, a lot of our money is haram money. So they knew what's wrong and what's valid, they knew it.

00:22:46--> 00:23:03

So they said, We need to rebuild the car, but with only pure Hillel money. It has to be rightful wealth has to be pure wealth. So they gathered the wealth. And the only wealth they had, which was which they were so certain from now that it was pure, was enough to rebuild it as a cube.

00:23:04--> 00:23:40

They didn't even have enough to build that last section as a rectangle. So yes, they admitted that they knew and Allah says they know what's right and what's wrong. So what's right is that the money was hallette was made up to only build a cube. So they built it as a cube. And there was the last rock, which is the Black Rock, and they didn't know who's gonna put it in. There were four tribes, four noble tribes, and they said, Who's going to put it in the one who puts it in or be known for the nobility. So they almost have to have a battle over the Black Rock. And then one of them said, and I think was the grandfather of the Salah Salem, I think it was him. He said, Let's sleep next to

00:23:40--> 00:23:58

the BlackRock. No one's allowed to touch it. And the next morning, tomorrow, the first person that enters we will tell him to judge and whatever he says will do. So they slipped, and the next morning, they woke up and they saw a man coming in the first man to enter the heart of the sanctuary of the Kaaba.

00:24:00--> 00:24:03

And they all open their eyes, and they had a smile from ear to ear.

00:24:05--> 00:24:06

And they pointed and said,

00:24:08--> 00:24:23

they nodded to each other. This is the man and they said, Yep, we all agree it was it. It was a prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam before he was a prophet. He was known for his nobilities loyalty, his honesty, his peace, loving nature, all of that he connected, everybody loved him, before he was a prophet.

00:24:26--> 00:24:46

And they said, We all agree to him. He says, Yeah, Mohammed, what do you say? So I said, let me say, I say that. I take off my clock and each one of you grab a section, and you all carry the stone to the corner and that way, no one can feel superiority over another. You all had equal share. And then I will take the rock off with my hands and put it in.

00:24:47--> 00:24:58

And that's exactly and they all said with one voice. If it was any other men that got we slept, and we were all thinking these were the leaders. They said we slept thinking, what are we going to do tomorrow?

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

We don't care who comes in. If he chooses any other tribe, we're gonna have a war over it.

00:25:05--> 00:25:33

But when you came in, we all thought, if it was any other man, we would have had a battle over it, but because of you, we all agreed. So he was known some a lot. I sent him for his honesty and loyalty, even before that. That's why Allah gave him the message, the message, the call, after 40 years of his life, people had to know him, so they have no excuse. Until today. Alhamdulillah even the greatest enemies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam cannot say about anything about him, at least before his prophethood

00:25:34--> 00:25:44

you know, even after his Prophet would but you know, they falsify things, but before his prophethood they all admit to his honesty, integrity, loyalty, and so on. And this was the same man whom Allah had prepared as a prophet.

00:25:46--> 00:26:23

So what did he say to Ayesha after that? He said to her, don't you know that when your people built the Kaaba, they shortened it from the foundation of Ibrahim alayhis salam. So I said, I just says, Then why do you not return it to its original foundation of Ibrahim? The prophets I send them answered, were it not for their sentiment attached to the tradition of Kufa until recently, I would have changed it, meaning the people of Quraysh there's got sentimental value to discover and it's attached to their disbelief in it before traditions of their ancestors. So if I touch it, they'll probably say that I've done something wrong to go to war with about it. So I left it to avoid

00:26:23--> 00:26:27

fitness avoid mischief. Then what happens was,

00:26:28--> 00:26:33

he said if it wasn't for them, I would have returned it to the way it was. There was a companion by the name of Abdullah Abu Zubaydah.

00:26:35--> 00:26:46

And of the loudness debate, he had a rule he ruled as he had a rule for a little while. A beloved was obeyed after the death of Solomon after the whole affair after the full affair later on, he lived on.

00:26:47--> 00:26:54

And in this type of a rule, according to what the prophet SAW, Selim said, our beloved was obeyed, rebuilt the Kaaba.

00:26:55--> 00:27:00

He wanted to rebuild the cover, he wanted to rebuild the cover the original way as a rectangle.

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

And what happened was,

00:27:07--> 00:27:08

he couldn't do that.

00:27:09--> 00:27:20

And he was killed in the year 73 of his era by El Hadji was the commander of the Omega halifa. And the halifa was Abdullah Abdullah Malik no matter when.

00:27:22--> 00:27:25

And he wrote savdhan medic, no matter when

00:27:26--> 00:27:33

that he wanted to build the Kaaba, in its original form. And he went and did it. At the lambdas debate, he went and did it.

00:27:35--> 00:27:52

But they thought that our beloved was obeyed, built the Kaaba that way. According to his own choice. They didn't even know about the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So the order for it to be demolished and built as a cube. After the death, the murder of our beloved and was obeyed by a judge this commander,

00:27:53--> 00:28:00

the halifa realized that it was actually a hadith violation of the lohana that the Kaaba, the processor was going to make into rectangle.

00:28:02--> 00:28:04

So he regretted it.

00:28:05--> 00:28:13

But the Kaabah state is a cube until four years until the halifa, who came after.

00:28:15--> 00:28:19

After he was called the halifa. Alma had Maddie urban monsoon.

00:28:21--> 00:28:44

He wanted to rebuild the Kaaba, as a rectangular, and in that time was Imam Malik, Rama lolly, the great scholar, the new scholar mm Malik of the Maliki method. And this halifa said, asked the man Malik, should I rebuild the Kaaba as a rectangle as prompts are seldom intended to do so. But he meant Malik said to him, I fear that kings, Kings may start playing around with it.

00:28:46--> 00:29:04

Whenever a new king comes, he may build it as he wanted. And the other one demolishes, and the other one comes up, I don't want it to turn into a game. And that was known by the kings in the Hall Effect coming and playing around wanting glory in the other one destroying it for glory and so on. And so it remained as a cube until today, as you see it,

00:29:05--> 00:29:47

not changed how long it's a doubtful area, they thought that's it, just leave it as it is. There's no harm in shadowland doing so so long as we all know that it's the rectangle. So this is all of this why all of this out of the status of Ibrahim alayhis salam is not a normal man. Ibrahim Ali Salim is the father of the MBA of the prophets, and a lot of praises him in the Quran in several ways. He says, Whatever ah him and lazy warfare, Ibrahim, the one who fulfilled all of his duties, he never, he never looked at something minor and said, Sorry, I'll leave it and I'll just do the major things. He even did the minor and the major. He never took any part of his worship to Allah as

00:29:48--> 00:29:52

for granted, like you know, some of us you know, in our weakness we're all you know,

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

guilty of it sometimes we neglect the sooner things as just as soon as so what it's not a big deal.

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

I'll just do the photo, then I'm saved.

00:30:03--> 00:30:39

You know, time comes, I'll do enough of prayer. Don't worry about the numbers. Don't worry about this. Don't worry about that. They're all little things. And on top of that, we look at the small things and we say it's just a small sin. Don't worry, I'll pray and it will be gone. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the majority of my own mobile enter, the people who enter Hellfire from my alma, the majority of them is because they used to look at small sins as nothing. They didn't really pay attention to it. So they ended up in hell away from its accumulation. So we have to be worried. We have to monitor brothers and sisters, the sooner acts are incredibly important. Allah

00:30:39--> 00:30:50

didn't make them compulsory said doesn't make life hard upon us, but it didn't leave out a single thing and the soul and the minor sins, again, Allah to make a song upon us, but we shouldn't take them for granted either.

00:30:52--> 00:30:59

Allah subhanaw taala out of praising Ibrahim alayhis salam, not only did he mentioned in the Quran in high esteem, look what else he did for him.

00:31:00--> 00:31:15

He gave out of his lineage out of his progeny. Every single prophet of missions that came after him came from Ibrahim alayhis salaam. Allah says, what will happen is how can I Jacobo nafees Ria de novo

00:31:17--> 00:31:17

was

00:31:18--> 00:31:21

getting in obovata when kita.

00:31:24--> 00:31:49

dunia was in fin. de la mina saw nation and we granted his hammock and the tube, Isaac and Jacob to Abraham, and we ordained the prophethood and the book to be among his progeny among his children, and we gave him his reward in this life and in the Hereafter he shall be among the righteous. Allahu Akbar. This is an enormous

00:31:51--> 00:32:12

unbelievable praise from Allah subhanho wa Taala. That all the scriptures which Allah sends down the revelations came from the children of Abraham la Center, the Torah, the Psalms of Deadwood, the in G and finally the Quran all came from the children of Ibrahim alayhi salam, and he gave him his houchen Jacobian from him came the children of Israel

00:32:13--> 00:32:31

and from them all their profits right after a Salah is lm Jesus Christ peace be upon him. And john, john Yahoo, salah and Zechariah and all of them and from Izmir Ilana is Salim, no other Prophet came except for the seal of the prophets. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:32:32--> 00:32:53

amazing honor from Allah subhanaw taala given to Ibrahim Allah His center and look at this, all the godly all the all the monotheistic religions, they cause Rob for non theistic religions. Let's just say that Abrahamic religions, the fact that Christianity Judaism and Islam, all of them honor Ibrahim alayhis salam and respect him and loving

00:32:55--> 00:33:14

Muslims respect and love Ibrahim iserlohn. Most Allah sallallahu the Jews love it, Sally send them home the Christians love, but we also love Mohammed Salah Salim I remember a story My father told me when I was a child, I don't know if it's true, but the meaning is true. He said, the scholar had a debate.

00:33:16--> 00:33:22

Sorry, there was a king. And he didn't he wants to know which religion was right. So he brought a chef, a scholar of Islam,

00:33:24--> 00:33:32

a priest from the a bishop or a priest from the Christians, and a rabbi. And he said, each one of you is going to prove to me that you are the one who is going to enter Paradise.

00:33:34--> 00:33:39

So as I said, I don't know if it's a true story. But the meanings of Panama is interesting. So the

00:33:41--> 00:33:51

the rabbi's said, we are going to enter Paradise, because we believe in Moses and his guidance, the Christian said, we are going to enter Paradise because we believe in Jesus Christ and His guidance and Moses.

00:33:53--> 00:33:56

So he said, Are you believe in Moses and Jesus, then the shape said,

00:33:59--> 00:34:03

if we enter Paradise, none of them are going to enter it.

00:34:04--> 00:34:24

And if the Jews enter it, we're going to enter with them. And if the Christians enter, we're still going to enter it with them. He said, Why? He said, If the rabbi enters it, we're gonna enter with him because we also love most allies that I'm following. And if the Christian enters that we also are going to enter because we also love Jesus Christ and we follow him. But if we enter it, then we're going to enter because we love Mohammed sauce and them and they don't.

00:34:25--> 00:34:31

They don't love him, and then I believe in him. So just the story of interesting meaning they

00:34:32--> 00:34:39

Ebrahim Allah is Allah, we will honor and respect Allah says in the Quran, what happened

00:34:41--> 00:34:46

is how to the colon hygena. One

00:34:48--> 00:34:54

Cardinal woman, reality the weather was so lame and he

00:34:56--> 00:34:56

was

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

so far removed

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

Was

00:35:02--> 00:35:08

organic energies in masini. Was that Gary? Yeah. Well, he said we're in the

00:35:10--> 00:35:12

middle Swanee. He was

00:35:13--> 00:35:16

when he said, you know, what?

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

I mean, well, I mean,

00:35:21--> 00:35:26

he Maria t him is when he was at Vayner.

00:35:31--> 00:36:03

And we granted him his hat, Isaac and Jacob, each one we got it. And before then we got it Noah and of his offspring, David, and Solomon and job and Joseph, Moses and Aaron. Thus we reward the daughters of good and Zechariah and john and Jesus and ilias, all from the righteous and Ishmael and Elijah and Jonah and lot and all we chose above the world and of their fathers and of their offsprings of their brethren and we chose them and we guided them to the straight path. Look how many prophets and messengers and rightly all from the progeny of Ibrahim alayhis salaam.

00:36:06--> 00:36:32

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praises Abram I sent him by saying aku mama Carmen yo boo, la Yun Han cuckoo home Hata Ibrahim, I will have a rank all mankind will desire for it on the Day of Judgment, even a prophet Abraham. In this is a Muslim, the prophet SAW Selim tells us that even Prophet Abraham will not be given the rank that I will be given on Day of Judgment, yet, he acknowledges the importance of Abraham saying, even Abraham alayhis salam.

00:36:33--> 00:36:52

It is narrated also Abraham, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to carry on traditions and actions of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, Mohammed wa sallam used to carry on traditions from Ibrahim Ali Salim. It is narrated from our beloved not best that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught his grandchildren and has an EN del Hussain the following prayer

00:36:54--> 00:36:55

and he said

00:36:58--> 00:37:05

your father Ibrahim used to seek refuge through them in Allah from his mouth, for his mane and Isaac he's to say

00:37:08--> 00:37:49

I will be Kelly Mattila hit m min Cooley shaitan in Warhammer woman cola I in in lamb. I seek refuge for a loss perfect words from every Satan and evil and from every bad i and this is narrated in Bali, Buhari so used to say to his grandchildren when they used to go to sleep. I see. I was either comedically methylator mom, Galicia Tottenham cola in England. So this is to protect people from evil I in bad dreams and so on and so forth. And this was the tradition of Ibrahim Allah, his Senate. Brothers and sisters. Ibrahim alayhis. Salam also brought to us a beautiful tradition. And that is called the fitrah a way of

00:37:50--> 00:37:54

a health a type of a type of cleansing impurity.

00:37:55--> 00:38:45

What is it? Even our Besa Delano says in respect of the following verses in the Quran, and remember when Ibrahim was put to test by his Lord with certain words, which he fulfilled have been our best says, Allah put him to test by Tata by cleanliness and purity, five kinds of purity in the head and five kinds of purity in the body, what are they the five kinds of purity in the head work number one, the clipping of the mustache. So it is for the men part of the natural decency, of cleansiness and, and also image is to clip your mustache then let him grow over your lips, so it's dirty when you eat. Number two, rinsing the mouth so cleaning it with the miswak or brushing it is also part of

00:38:45--> 00:39:04

the tradition of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, using the Syriac in Spitzer rinsing the mouth and number three using the Syriac he also used the Miss wack, cleaning of the teeth number four, taking water in the nose and cleaning it is also part of the sin of cleansiness. So you know, Muslims are not snotty.

00:39:06--> 00:39:16

nor are they snobby? not smart enough snobby. And number five combing the hair are also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hamza Salah nice to have a bowl of water at the

00:39:18--> 00:39:48

when he at his door, when he exited the house, he had a bowl of water instead of a mirror, so you can see his reflection in it. So he's to look at it to check his hair. If he is well groomed, and to see his face to see if he looks presentable. This is part of the fitrah the natural decency which Allah created the humans with and it is also a tradition of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, and the five kinds of taharah of purity on cleanse in the body were as follows number one, clipping the nails.

00:39:49--> 00:40:00

So some women they love growing their nails beyond this is actually known in the past traditions as witchery which is used to grow their nails, even at the time of the Christians and even before that,

00:40:00--> 00:40:44

But it's not because of that we don't like it is because of what it denotes. growing the nails is, is not clean, and the things that you know, the dirt and bacteria that hides beneath it, even if you clean it. It's also you know, sorcerer isn't witchery is known for, you know long nails, so it's meaning and then it's images not nice. So it is part of the filter of the muscle to clip their nails, shaving the private hair. So the pubic hairs is also part of the cleansiness and filter. Number three circumcision for the men. Number four plucking out removing the armpit hair, also as part of our filter, our purity and number five, cleaning oneself after you know the urinating, or

00:40:44--> 00:41:08

defecating so doing number one or number two, cleaning it with water. This is part of the fitrah the natural decency which Allah expects every Muslim to have, and it's also normal human nature. So anyone who doesn't do it is really being either like an animal or being like a non human. Also, there are other types of filters the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke to us about and that is

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

cleaning the parts of the body where dirt accumulates, so any part of the body where this happens as well.

00:41:17--> 00:41:26

So this is part of the Muslim cleanse cleansiness as Ibrahim alayhis salam carried out, I'd like to mention a few interesting Hadees about Ibrahim alayhis salaam

00:41:28--> 00:41:30

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:41:35--> 00:41:38

out of humbleness out of humbleness he used to say the following.

00:41:40--> 00:41:46

One men came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said he saw the prophet and he said, Yeah, hi you're all very Yeah.

00:41:48--> 00:42:01

Oh, the best of creatures. He turned to me and said, oh, there is the best of creatures pointing the problem Bahamas last and what did the Prophet say to him? The prophet SAW Selim said the Ibrahim that is Abraham.

00:42:02--> 00:42:42

Out of respect for Abraham Allison and not literally but out of respect for him. He also said led to for the loonie halal MBA, do not raise my rank upon other prophets. So does that say Mohammed Salim? He is better than Isaiah and Moosa and Abraham No, not allowed to say that. Yes, the prophesied said him said I am the leader of the prophets, the master of the prophets on the Day of Judgment, yes. But it doesn't mean he said, I am better than Abraham, I am better than Musa this is what he said. He said, Do not exalt me upon Moses, for example, because people will swing on the day of judgment and I will be first to regain consciousness, I will find musalla is that I'm Moses holding with the

00:42:42--> 00:43:02

legs of the throne. I will not know whether he gained his consciousness before me, or he did not swoon as a recompense to the swoon. He went through on the mountain of thought. In other words, I don't know if he had if Allah raised him before me on the Day of Judgment, or whether I was raised before him out of respect and honor.

00:43:03--> 00:43:04

Now,

00:43:07--> 00:43:19

the description of Ibrahim alayhis salam features is interesting. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, I have seen Jesus the son of Mary and Moses and Abraham I saw them

00:43:21--> 00:43:41

he saw them Allah showed him to them. As for Jesus alayhis salaam, he was red, red skinned, have curly hair and broad chest describes him this way. masala Salaam was have tanned skin and big body and he had rough here. The Companions asked what about Abraham, Abraham la center, he said

00:43:44--> 00:43:49

on rural ala Sahiba come look at your men, meaning himself
