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

We continue from the story of halfway through the story of solid data center.

00:00:20--> 00:00:28

So we said last week that the people of solid, challenged solid, about his truth and he was profitable.

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

And then after they mocked him just like the people before mocked, or de la Santa, those before he mocked, no halaya, Santa, these ones marked their profit, as well.

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

And when somebody is on the truth, and people are on the false, and they know that you're on the truth, but they don't want to accept it,

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

they start to lobby against you. Make propaganda against you, falsified and gossip, to fix the truth with false because of their agenda.

00:01:03--> 00:01:07

But no matter how far force reaches the truth, eventually catches up.

00:01:08--> 00:01:43

Always, my brothers and sisters in Islam saw and I've said you asked me for any miracle that you want to see. And I will give it to you and ask Allah to give it to you. But on one condition that you honor, trust, and obey Allah in anything, he tells you after that, and you believe in him. They said, We give you our word. The people who asked him for this miracle were the elite people, the leaders of the tribes, the people who thought they weren't superior to others, they were the main problem.

00:01:44--> 00:01:49

So we said last week that they said to him, we want you to produce for us a shakeout.

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

That is the largest and biggest sheet camera we've ever seen.

00:01:54--> 00:01:57

And she came on has to come out of that rock over there.

00:01:58--> 00:02:02

As the crop Rock has to crack open, and a big sheet camera has to come out.

00:02:03--> 00:02:10

Not only that it has to be pregnant with a male candle that's just about to be born within a couple of months.

00:02:14--> 00:02:20

And they said it has to be so big, that it would need a whole day by itself to drink from that well,

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

that supplies the water to LCT.

00:02:24--> 00:02:31

Like as much as the whole village. That's how big we needed to be. There needs a whole village supply of water

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

to drink, right?

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

This was their request.

00:02:38--> 00:02:46

So when I was trying to hire teachers, people, of course people and advises people and they don't want his advice. He then tells him like what do you want?

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

What do you want for you to believe?

00:02:52--> 00:03:00

If that's the issue that you just don't believe, because you haven't seen me or you haven't? You're not convinced? Then you told me what you want.

00:03:02--> 00:03:03

And so they said bring us that?

00:03:07--> 00:03:12

And he said, If I do that, what do you believe? He said yes.

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

He said then why?

00:03:15--> 00:03:19

By the way, the story is in the Quran, I'm not just saying it out of Hadith or anything's in the Quran.

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

And so they waited until the day came

00:03:23--> 00:03:30

and a Subhan Allah they heard the rumbling rumbling where the stone is they all gathered big elite people

00:03:32--> 00:03:49

and they saw before their eyes the rock crack open and from it came out exactly the descriptions which they asked for. The biggest shake camera they have ever seen. pregnant with a baby male with a turnoff was male yes when he was pregnant about to give birth

00:03:52--> 00:03:56

they passed the news on to each other and saw that a sudden came to them and said okay,

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

Allah commands you

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

that this shake camel is a trust Fela dam is so heavy so he said Yeah, call me oh my people had the he now called Allah hillicon. This is the CHE camel of Allah. For you, as you asked. Falletta was so heavy, so do not harm it in any bad. It's a trust. It's a work of a entrusted to you.

00:04:26--> 00:04:27

Do not touch it.

00:04:29--> 00:04:44

You might be thinking, what's the big deal about touching of enhanced just an animal? Maybe? What's the big deal? I mean, okay, it's a trust. But what's the big deal? First of all, it's not just about the camel itself. Of course, a Muslim is ordered to be merciful towards the animals.

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

And that an older and that a woman who tortured a cat by imprisoning her in a room, not letting it eat outside and not feeding it herself. Punish the cat until it died. It was a result of her entering hellfire.

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

Then a woman who practice prostitution in her life wanted God to forgive.

00:05:06--> 00:05:18

And one day she saw a dog was panting, her thirst. And she gave her drinking water. And as a result, it was what it was needed for her to enter Paris.

00:05:21--> 00:05:25

But this is not the main issue here. The main issue is that

00:05:27--> 00:05:28

you

00:05:29--> 00:05:30

and Allah,

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

you want to establish a relationship with

00:05:35--> 00:05:45

this prophet has been calling it to worship Allah alone and calling to the truth. You've asked for a particular miracle whether it's a she camel or the sky, raining gold on your whatever, you can ask for anything.

00:05:47--> 00:06:12

And Allah gave you that miracle, according to your request, because this is an unnatural thing. It's a super natural thing which Allah doesn't do. Unless it's for something really especially special and he made you special by giving you something that even the prophets themselves have never asked for. And the noblest of people in history. Allah didn't give him he gave you when you're fighting God. So I'm only asking you to do one thing.

00:06:13--> 00:06:19

On command again, not to touch this shake Hamelin anyhow, is this a difficult request?

00:06:21--> 00:06:25

This also tells us the scholars tell us this is the formula that

00:06:27--> 00:06:41

when I'm most proud of the highlight commands people, he never commands us to do anything that is beyond their ability. And if He commands us to do something, number one, it's only because it's the best for our development. And number two,

00:06:43--> 00:06:50

Allah never asks us to do something in order to burn us, never something beyond their ability.

00:06:52--> 00:07:00

Allah says measure Allah Allah confit demon, how much Allah did not make anything in these in this religion of yours, anything in it?

00:07:01--> 00:07:23

rules or laws or commandments or advice or guidance to make life difficult on you. You make it a burden on yourself, by the way you think and by the way, you learn your own religion, I mean, you learn in a twisted way, sometimes not you I mean, some people they learn in a twisted way, they look at it as more formalities than spiritual for example, the outside appearance

00:07:24--> 00:07:33

like a mathematical calculation, yes. So that helps the B it helps the hijab helps the fast and helps. But there are secondary things actually.

00:07:35--> 00:07:47

Secondary, they are meant to complete you in the original purpose and that is your spiritual connection to Allah. And secondly, your development of your character. That's the purpose of it.

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

So

00:07:51--> 00:07:52

the religion is not difficult.

00:07:53--> 00:08:16

And Allah usually asked us to do very simple things like when he asked Adam on a Santa commended Adam how to do what whatever you live from Paradise from this garden, but don't touch the tree. A tree the treatment is who cares about trees, it's not about the tree. It's about command the whole lot, the trusted establish the trust that if I were to tell you don't touch a tree, will you obey? It means a lot.

00:08:19--> 00:08:20

I gave you one job.

00:08:21--> 00:08:25

As they say, you couldn't even do that. So don't touch this animal in any ha.

00:08:26--> 00:08:27

Very simple.

00:08:28--> 00:08:34

Subhan Allah, the shaitan came to them and they listen and these people proved to be filled with evil themself.

00:08:37--> 00:08:42

They started to see the she camel as a burden on them.

00:08:44--> 00:08:48

Subhan Allah, the Command of Allah, they turned it into a burn.

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

It started drinking from the well one whole day

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

and the whole village have to wait one whole day, the next day to drink from it.

00:08:57--> 00:09:04

They got annoyed of that. And it gets too great anywhere it wants. It's eating our crops.

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

So the device the plan

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

to kill the sheep cows, eat its meat, use it for its leather, and get rid of it once and for all.

00:09:17--> 00:09:22

We don't want that truth. Looking at us in the face Subhanallah

00:09:24--> 00:09:33

there were nine groups of troublemakers in that community.

00:09:34--> 00:09:52

You could call them nine gangs that had a leader and followers in the modern world and call them bikers. You can call them gangs who sell drugs or whatever you can call them gangs who are out there to corrupt these were nine corrupt against

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

whenever the leaders of the community wanted to do something corrupt. Obviously the latest cannot

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

ruin their reputation, they've got to look like they are just unfair and out there for the people. They get these guys to do their dirty work.

00:10:10--> 00:10:27

So Allah says what can an effing Medina deserve this outdoor rotting? And in their city, they will nine gangs, right? You've seen enough in our dividends the one they always Their purpose was to corrupt everybody's lives and never repair.

00:10:30--> 00:10:36

They came to them and said, what can you do for us? They said, we'll go kill the ShakeOut.

00:10:37--> 00:10:52

And then we'll go to Saul and his family and those who followed Him will kill them as well. At night, we'll return and we'll say, we don't know what happened to the family and to the account. And that way no one

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

can prove

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

who killed him.

00:10:58--> 00:11:01

It's similar to when a device to kill the Prophet Muhammad Salah asked Allah

00:11:02--> 00:11:21

Subhan Allah they got a member from each village to kill the crossbar, Salah, assassinating one go, and the blood is distributed among all the villages not going to fight other villages. So they just pay blood money and everybody's off the hook. These nine said will come up, and nobody can blame anyone. And there is no proof or evidence.

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

So

00:11:25--> 00:11:30

they went into the mountains, they found the she camel and it's baby.

00:11:32--> 00:11:44

And as Allah says, For Otto now, they slaughtered the sheikh. And they said in the Hadith, that they could hear it screaming throughout the entire city, and it's very good.

00:11:46--> 00:11:52

Then they slaughtered it, cut it up, distributed its meat, and used its leather.

00:11:54--> 00:11:59

Direct disobedience of Allah, which meant a lot more than just killing in our

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

soil I found out

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

before the nine groups went and got to him and his family. And Allah said to Saudi, Saudi,

00:12:10--> 00:12:22

they have broken the treaty with them and between them and Allah, you have won them, you have advised them, I gave them exactly what they asked for. This is now proof

00:12:24--> 00:12:40

that the judgment is fine. These people are corrupt in nature. And they will never make justice or goodness on in the land except corruption. Therefore, there is no need for people who might create it.

00:12:41--> 00:12:45

Who will own the corrupt in the length of time to take them away.

00:12:50--> 00:13:07

They got the messenger. They got the proof. They got their silence, and insisted on corrupting when Allah says that he takes them away. He takes them back. Now killing them is not the punishment. Allah is just taking them by the punishments in the hereafter.

00:13:09--> 00:13:11

So saw that said to them,

00:13:12--> 00:13:24

yeah, I'll call my people for doing that. I want you they said what are you wanting us bring about Allah's punishment on this earth. As you have warned of Christ, we are waiting.

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

You foolish man.

00:13:29--> 00:13:35

And he said, wait three days, and the punishment will come Subhan Allah Allah still gave him three days to repent.

00:13:37--> 00:14:15

And Allah said to Salah and his family run, and do not look back. Allah says, And when a village or a town or a people, corrupt beyond measure, and the messenger has come to them, and the judgment befalls them in the truth, we save the believers among them. The Muslims aren't the ones who who fix the ones who are righteous, the ones who make things right, and we get rid of the corrupters he ran away. And the law broke the first day their faces turned yellow, they started to cry, Oh my God, it's a plague. It's a disease, but they did not repent. That the second day their faces turned red.

00:14:17--> 00:14:46

And the third day their faces faces turn dark, and SubhanAllah. This was the three signs they said in the Hadith that the condition of Allah was coming to them. On the fourth day, Allah did not bring upon them a breeze or a what he called the ultimate NATO like he did to the people of Ireland. He brought upon them colors of punishments. There was an earthquake, or flood, and there was something called a cipher cipher means the angel Jibreel comes in and screams until there is pop, you know, like

00:14:47--> 00:14:56

Subhanallah here reminds you of an atomic bomb, like a wave that that explodes the ears and the brains.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

Human beings can even invent that.

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

So,

00:15:01--> 00:15:06

he took them and Allah says, forgotten

00:15:07--> 00:15:11

far away away with the people of higher than the people of them.

00:15:13--> 00:15:18

When saw that came back to see the city, he saw them all dead

00:15:19--> 00:15:25

and he got sad for them sad in a sense that my pity

00:15:26--> 00:15:41

and he said yeah call me my people I advised you want to look home when I can when I can learn from one another. But you do not like those who advise you. You don't want the advice you refute shows this way.

00:15:42--> 00:15:59

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam I had and ThermoWood are the only two tribes who will became extinct among the Arab world, the Arab bloodline. And Allah says in the Quran, we lifted buildings as a sign after you said that you may reflect

00:16:00--> 00:16:11

their buildings in Jordan in Petra are still there of Ireland and the samode. The buildings are still there in Saudi Arabia today. A few kilometers outside of Medina

00:16:12--> 00:16:17

Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam said in the Hadith which is imposed by a Muslim and Buhari

00:16:18--> 00:16:51

whoever review it when he went to the Battle of the book fighting the Romans, they pass by the buildings of Thurmond, huge castles and buildings carved into the mountains allow us to describe it says that within the Shibu in energy valuable Yota you carve, you carve and chisel very fine, careful artistic creation of this architecture beyond the magic beyond that amusement,

00:16:52--> 00:17:04

you chisel and we carve into the mountains of big buildings, to show us that civilization does not advance through the technological orchestration or through the architecture or through their

00:17:05--> 00:17:10

you know, technological advancement. A civilization is judged by Justice and its morals.

00:17:13--> 00:17:57

Brothers and sisters, he said, When you pass body when he was taught going to America to walk, if they passed by my dad and saw that and of course, our seminar said, these are the places of the people whom Allah subhanho wa Taala destroyed as a result of their own doings. So do not pass them as a form of amusement, like a holiday, like a tourist attraction, but rather passed by them while your heads are down and weep, crying, remembering, remembering the destruction of people who are corrupt. And remember the fear of a loss of data, the fear of Allah does not mean to be scared of God. Allah is our hammer rock, I mean, He is the Most Merciful. That's how Allah is. And I am Allah

00:17:57--> 00:18:13

says as you think in a positive way, Allah does not it gives chances after chances. However, if a people deserve to be punished in such a way, it means truly they are the most evil of evil. Because Allah Allah never punish people unless there is no hope.

00:18:15--> 00:18:23

And he only punishes them. Because get ready for it. He only punishes them because of His mercy.

00:18:24--> 00:18:32

Allah takes away people because of His mercy, not because of His wrath, because his mercy, why

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

aren't the innocent people

00:18:36--> 00:18:44

and two generations to come after them who deserve to live moral and ethical and safe lives?

00:18:45--> 00:18:51

Did they not have the right to resources which Allah created for all mankind and all creatures?

00:18:52--> 00:19:07

These people are corrupt. They weren't ruling by injustice. They made people into a hierarchy like a pyramid, that they decided who deserves what, and they have control over God's resources on earth which were made freely to all people and all creation.

00:19:08--> 00:19:15

Allah will not leave these types of people in order to bring corruption upon the innocent lives of generations to come.

00:19:16--> 00:19:55

So he gets rid of them and Allah Subhana Allah does that have mercy for the others to give them a chance so they can lead with justice? And the Lord says in the Quran, whether we know the Fulani nurse or baboon, be balding, and if it wasn't that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala repels certain people with others, meaning he replaces them with others, or that he creates people who fight off other people who are corrupt law who did not survive in many places of worship. Monasteries would have been destroyed, and churches and synagogues and mosques in which Allah's name is mentioned often.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Yanni, Allah started as mentioning places of worship even if they

00:20:00--> 00:20:14

belong to other religions. It is injustice, to destroy these things and to cause corruption and havoc, but rather allows us to establish harmony in order that we may teach the people the truth that are lost found to Allah brought us with.

00:20:15--> 00:20:22

If you want to destroy their buildings and destroy these people based on their belief, then what is the purpose of the messengers coming to this world?

00:20:23--> 00:20:36

It is da, da da. And the only reason that also SallAllahu wasallam accepted remember the Treaty of Philadelphia when we talked about the Sierra series? Remember the Treaty of Pavia when he accepted all their rules, even though they were oppressive.

00:20:38--> 00:20:49

He was for one purpose, to stop war. They didn't want to fight anymore, and to have peace, so that they can teach the people the message of a lot and truly within two years

00:20:51--> 00:20:55

10,000 people embraced Islam and followed the truth,

00:20:56--> 00:20:58

as compared to nearly

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

19 years of war and battles. Were only a few handful follow the truth. So Islam only works in an environment and a community of peace and harmony. It's not made to work in corruption, and war, and blood.

00:21:19--> 00:21:40

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, such was the story Saleh Alayhis Salam then took his family and went to Palestine. In Arabic, the true name is Finnes Thien, Philistine is the name in the Torah. And it is the name in the Gospel, the injeel. And then is the name and there's a whole dissolve sent out from there without a center.

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

And the story is called Philistine.

00:21:45--> 00:21:53

That's the original Arabic or the original name of Palestine, Jerusalem, Salah died there.

00:21:54--> 00:22:13

And after him, the people had another chance that Subhan Allah, yet again, the false came to the surface, and people returned to the worshipping of idols and dailies other than Allah, Allah.

00:22:16--> 00:22:25

So Allah subhana wa Allah sent another messenger of Allah, a prophet by the name of Ibrahim Alayhi Salat

00:22:26--> 00:22:43

the story of Salah and who and who God is mentioned about 26 times in the Quran 26 places. The story of Ibrahim alayhis salam is repeated in the Quran more than 70 in 79 times in over 23 soldiers.

00:22:45--> 00:22:56

Because the story of Rome I said is extremely important, so full of wisdom and lessons for our Ummah, for the world, that Allah mentioned that many times.

00:23:00--> 00:23:02

Ibrahim, Allah has set up.

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

He was born

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

in Babylonia

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

in Iraq today.

00:23:12--> 00:23:20

And he spoke a language other than Arabic, directly, or the original language of Hebrew, possibly Aramaic.

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

Were the people who worshipped idols

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

with zealous zealously

00:23:30--> 00:24:08

obviously they weren't they knew who God was, they they all worship but all said Allah is one like today even at the Jews say God is one which Christians say God is one the Sikhs, who are a branch of Hinduism, they say God is one, everybody, even the Hindus themselves say there is an ultimate one God, but the problem is that they brought deities and gave them different characteristics and called them Gods as part of Gods. And Allah Subhana Allah, He says, I am the one and only How can you worship other days other than Allah subhanaw taala alone misguide you, and do not speak to you and do not respond to you and cannot benefit you. And you use them in order to create corruption and

00:24:08--> 00:24:52

havoc. And you use them in order to create superiority, superiority over others and hierarchies over others and so we can see in history as a result of adultery did when we reached the story of Pharaoh in the time of the Brahim Ali salaam there was a king, his name was called a nun road. Nimrod meaning in Arabic the one full of pride. And he used the idols idolatry as a means to create his himself as an ultimate King of all kings, to the point where he himself called himself a god. When people follow false, then everybody can make up any religion they want. There was this man who made up his own religion, and he said there are aliens that will come and take your bodies, and he took

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

his followers to this remote place. They committed suicide and waiting with their luggage for aliens to come and take them to salvation.

00:25:00--> 00:25:28

There was a woman who made her religion. She called it the hugging religion. She came to Australia. And everybody said, Yeah, hug, hug hug. Why? Because it's false. Why not follow something that's false and can be manipulated and edited as we please. But when it comes to the truth, which you can't change, they say we are imprisoned with the with it, it restricts us. No, you are against the truth. You don't accept honesty, you don't accept trustworthiness, you don't accept all these values because they restrict you from doing the wrong thing. That's the truth.

00:25:30--> 00:25:31

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

00:25:33--> 00:26:14

Ibrahim Ali Salam came to them. And he was the son of his father was nicknamed as, and the answer is a kind of name. Ibrahim Allison's father had good values. And that is that he was kind to the people. He was so kind that He used to himself, manufacture the idols for them in different shapes Made to Order gods made to order. And they used to buy them off the father of his father as they trusted him. And the next person would get a God of their own, call it a name, and make it the God of something as their feelings desire, the god of trust, the god of marriage, the god of this, or the God of that, like Greek theology.

00:26:16--> 00:26:23

And people used to pray to them, look at them, talk to them, give them offerings, and everything else, as you know, idolatry.

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

Ibrahim alayhis salam grew up and one day he was approximately what you would call today 12 years old.

00:26:35--> 00:26:40

And he realized in his instinctive conscious nature,

00:26:41--> 00:26:45

instinctive conscious, what nature

00:26:46--> 00:26:53

instinctive, conscious nature is what we call an Arabic in the Hadith, with the process and tourists it is

00:26:55--> 00:26:56

filled

00:26:58--> 00:27:15

fitrah every person is born with it to naturally without any manipulation, without any influence from society or parents or people around you. This is the secret within every human being an intuition that makes you question where did I come from?

00:27:16--> 00:27:22

There has to be a creator. There has to be a being that made all of this

00:27:23--> 00:27:30

and it's got and it's supported by our eyes and our ears and our brain and our hearts. All of these Support Us to guide us

00:27:32--> 00:27:33

Subhan Allah

00:27:36--> 00:27:40

when Ibrahim alayhi salam notice this

00:27:41--> 00:27:43

he immediately like any other child,

00:27:45--> 00:27:47

if a child looks at you praying to a stone

00:27:49--> 00:27:53

and you say to the stone Give me Give me the child will say how

00:27:54--> 00:27:59

he's not talking to you. Why are you talking to a rock? You don't even have to teach the child that

00:28:01--> 00:28:12

way my children say this to me all the time. I've developed this habit brothers, sisters, my wife, I'm not insane or crazy, but trust me just that when you're a public speaker, they will tell you, you talk to yourself a lot.

00:28:14--> 00:28:23

I'll be driving. I don't realize I'm just talking to myself. Training. I don't know why that happens. My kids always recognize that

00:28:25--> 00:28:25

that's

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

that what you're talking to yourself again.

00:28:31--> 00:28:36

It's like obviously you're not talk to yourself. That's great. You're stupid. Kids. That's what they're saying. Basically.

00:28:40--> 00:28:42

That's instinct of a child.

00:28:46--> 00:28:50

Once I said she said to me, I want to say Allah

00:28:52--> 00:28:53

said you can't see why.

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

It's instinctive.

00:28:57--> 00:29:03

The fact that she says I want to say Allah means that instinctively we want to connect with a higher power.

00:29:06--> 00:29:07

She said

00:29:08--> 00:29:20

I can't see why I said because not right now. But in Germany, you can see why it says right now it's hard to seem because your eyes will burn. Can you look at the senses? No, you can't look at the senses. Okay? Well, how can I see a lot Can I get a letter?

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

said no, a letter won't reach

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

it Okay, well, I'm gonna talk to him. I said you can talk to him inside out.

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

Because I want to hug him.

00:29:34--> 00:29:38

I said in select and she goes on is that when we do this

00:29:42--> 00:29:43

for a child, what are you gonna say?

00:29:45--> 00:29:46

Said Yes. Yes.

00:29:47--> 00:29:49

And that encouraged her to pray.

00:29:51--> 00:29:53

Another time, she said

00:29:55--> 00:29:57

she did something wrong to me

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

than I should

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

They're a bit of anger.

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

She got scared, started to cry.

00:30:06--> 00:30:09

And she, instead of running away from me,

00:30:10--> 00:30:11

she wanted to hug him.

00:30:13--> 00:30:19

No, no. Oh, I pushed her she's pushing forward. But if you're scared of someone and she meant to run away,

00:30:20--> 00:30:22

yes, she's running to me.

00:30:23--> 00:30:24

That day I thought

00:30:27--> 00:30:33

Why would my daughter run to me when she's supposed to be scared of the hotter I pushed, the more she pushed to come?

00:30:37--> 00:30:41

She said afraid. But her fear is guiding her to come closer to me.

00:30:44--> 00:30:56

Because she knows her father has mercy and love. Because he's a dad. The father is meant to be the safety. Right at that point, she felt that she lost that side of her that she wants the love back.

00:30:57--> 00:31:03

She didn't lose her dad. She loves that side of her that she wants her back. So she's pushing to make me love her again. And the way to do this to happen.

00:31:05--> 00:31:09

I put her in my lap finally hugged her. She slipped.

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

She feels safe.

00:31:14--> 00:31:30

One lucky she taught me a stronger, deeper meaning to the word it duckula The Taqwa of Allah, to fear Allah. What it means to fear Allah that he'll destroy me. No, no. To fear Allah means

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

to run away.

00:31:33--> 00:31:34

To run away

00:31:36--> 00:31:38

from being distant from Allah.

00:31:41--> 00:31:42

To Allah,

00:31:43--> 00:31:45

run away from Allah, to

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

run away

00:31:51--> 00:31:53

from disconnecting from Allah,

00:31:54--> 00:31:55

to establish with the love with

00:31:57--> 00:32:03

run away to Allah to feel safe. Run away from all this stuff that's around you to Allah, your safety is only within

00:32:04--> 00:32:13

fearing Allah subhanho wa Taala means to stay away from the things that make you distant from him. That's what we're afraid of.

00:32:14--> 00:32:18

And running to him to get that safety, security love back.

00:32:19--> 00:32:31

For what Allah is Allah says in the Quran, Allah the Quran Allah He taught me in Northcote behold, it is in the remembrance of Allah, that the hearts feel safe.

00:32:35--> 00:32:52

My brothers and sisters, Ibrahim was like that. It is set up at a tender age, he sees his father praying to these idols and selling them. He sees everybody carrying them on their shoulder, on their camels, putting them in places and praying to them. Why?

00:32:53--> 00:33:23

On top of the law and who says in my Jania days, I used to when I used to travel, I used to make my God because he had a big good statue because I can't carry too heavy. So I used to get dates because dates are like clay. I had mold them into something that looks like my statue at home. I'd carry it with me on my journey. Whenever I needed something, I pray to it. It goes on sometimes to eat a lot before it's nap. So he goes when I reached halfway and ran out of food I got too hungry. So I started to eat my god.

00:33:26--> 00:33:29

Ibrahim Ali Salah comes to his father and says yeah, but

00:33:30--> 00:33:39

now the word liberty in Arabic is like saying, My dear beloved Father,

00:33:40--> 00:33:43

it is the ultimate way of combining between

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

showing your love to him

00:33:47--> 00:33:48

and your respect.

00:33:50--> 00:34:00

So when you say me, it's a respect, abetting respect and closeness. So both of his father's a gift.

00:34:01--> 00:34:10

Ibrahim Ali Salim is a movement yet he is addressing his father with the most tender and respectful address. Yeah.

00:34:13--> 00:34:21

This tells us that even if your parents are disbelievers, and they fight you in order to leave your deen

00:34:22--> 00:34:26

don't obey them enough but still address them with respect tenderness and love.

00:34:27--> 00:34:46

When Jehovah God Allah Allah disregarding, Allah says if your parents struggle and strive in every way to not believe in me, fill up a doormat don't obey them, while saw him after dunya but continue to accompany them in life with goodness.

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

My brothers and sisters it says yeah, everything. limitado man is smart, whether you're scraping, cache, or dead. I want to know, why do you worship something that

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

doesn't hear

00:35:02--> 00:35:03

doesn't seem

00:35:04--> 00:35:15

and doesn't benefit you in anything. That's a child's worse. Why talking to yourself that why you wish something that doesn't hear or listen to you? Child instinctive Fiachra

00:35:17--> 00:35:21

Yeah, but I think he addresses him again. Yeah, I bet the dear beloved father I love you.

00:35:24--> 00:35:28

Nothing with the shirt on you keeps going. Don't wish it to shake.

00:35:29--> 00:35:44

Shack Tom is evil. In a shaitana Canada, Romania, Austria. Shaitan always disobeys the Most Merciful. You see, his father knew about the story of Adam. He knew about the story of shaitan he knows the story about Allah's pinata they all wish it Allah went and hung it but they made partners with it.

00:35:45--> 00:35:58

Just like Mohamed Salah Salem, and Allah addresses him, he used to say to him, tell them not to make partners with Allah. And they used to reply to him by saying we do wish Allah Allah. But we also wish if these idols because they bring us closer to you,

00:35:59--> 00:36:15

through we need intercessors which is shook. Allah does not need an intercessor Allah says we're either set an archiver The only thing you can eat, if my worship is ask you about Me. I am close. I'm almost close you don't need and that's why the messengers died.

00:36:17--> 00:36:40

So that we don't think that we need messengers to reach Allah messengers bring us the message to teach us and guide us then Allah takes them away so we can focus on Allah. As Abu Bakr Siddiq of the Allahu Anhu said, When the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem died, and the whole of the city was crying, an earthquake of cries and pit Some people wanted to leave us now some people wanted to die, they have a book or the amount of stood up and said, Man Can y'all go to love and aloha you and

00:36:41--> 00:36:50

whoever used to worship Allah he is ever living and he will never die. Women can they are with the Muhammad and Muhammad and God met. And when we used to worship Mohamed Salah send him that he has died.

00:36:52--> 00:37:13

So we worship Allah Allah. And he said to him, yeah, Betty Oh, my beloved father that has come to me and use that has not come to you yet. But the Barony follow me and because of that, so we I can I'm able to guide you to a a guidance which suits both of us that you taught me on, and I will revert with whoever we regurgitate to you.

00:37:15--> 00:37:43

So his father knew the truth. And his father knew that these items weren't going to benefit him. After a little while the father sort of got convinced by son. So he says, Alright, then, you know, you take them and sell them in the market, at least benefit some money with them. So Abraham, I sell them goes up with the idols to the market. And he says, oh, people are people who would like to buy something a product that cannot benefit you in any way and cannot harm you in any way.

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

Who's gonna buy a product that can benefit anyone and can't harm anyone? I mean, a gun can harm people right go by to harm people suffering. And a, you know, perfume benefits you right food benefits, you guys. It doesn't benefit and cannot harm can't do anything with it.

00:38:02--> 00:38:23

But But come on, I'll give you a special price. Nobody bought the idols because they didn't see them didn't know what he's talking about. When he returned back home and found that he couldn't sell anything. The father said, Well, could you say something that doesn't benefit or harm? I guess that I'm telling the truth. Ibrahim alayhis salam was one of those who wore his heart on his sleeves. He spoke, how he felt, not how he felt what he believed.

00:38:24--> 00:38:37

So a grandmother is Salam comes back and this is what happened. And then one day he says to his father, something not good. As he grew up older, his father says to him, the Kingdom rule is our God.

00:38:38--> 00:38:53

And he said, No, he's not Allah is the god of Nimrod. And in Israel, our tradition, it said that his father slept his son, and his mother slept as soon as there was abuse. They started to abuse Ibrahim Ali salaam, himself. This is called religious abuse.

00:38:57--> 00:38:58

And they said

00:38:59--> 00:39:04

that How dare you leave the religion of your own parents emotional abuse

00:39:06--> 00:39:07

and then physical abuse.

00:39:09--> 00:39:16

And they tried to play with his mind psychological abuse. All forms of abuse, Ibrahim Ali Salam went through with his parents.

00:39:18--> 00:39:21

And finally, his father said to him,

00:39:22--> 00:39:26

let him learn at all him and Anton early, healthier Ibrahim

00:39:27--> 00:39:28

Are you

00:39:29--> 00:39:38

do you think that you are greater than me and our belief that you think you're better

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

than my own gods

00:39:42--> 00:39:57

limped into here if you don't stop what you're doing? The average human neck I will stone you will surely millenia and abandon get out of here. I will abandon you. I will disown you

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

Abraham Ali Salam continue to tenderly talk to his father, regardless.

00:40:07--> 00:40:17

Until finally, Ibrahim made the choice when there was no hope. And he said to his father, if you're not going to accept me, you're not going to have me, I will leave you alone.

00:40:19--> 00:40:33

What while I still feel like, I will continue to ask Allah to forgive him, what other people will adore of the and I will continue to call upon Allah. My lord will never leave me alone. And I hope that he guides you and me my father.

00:40:34--> 00:40:43

So even when he left is still meant to offer his father has to make a stick for for his father, and for his mother. But he had to leave because his father would no longer allow him to stay.

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

As he left,

00:40:48--> 00:41:00

he went, first of all, to the church, the church, not a Christian church, it was the place of worship and had all the idols there. And he looked up at the stars. And he said to the people,

00:41:02--> 00:41:15

I feel sick. And I need to stay here so the idols can cure me. And this shows us that the people of Babylonia used to have this belief about the way the stars were positioned. They had belief in,

00:41:18--> 00:41:19

in astrology.

00:41:22--> 00:41:37

And they said, Yeah, that's good, that's fine. You can stay here, you can worship the idols and get God, you know, whatever, this stars or whatever to cue it. They lifted it, and he had in his little baggage and axe, not an axe a sledgehammer.

00:41:39--> 00:41:45

When they left, he looked at the oils, and he spoke to the idols. He says,

00:41:46--> 00:41:47

have some food.

00:41:48--> 00:41:49

No one spoke to

00:41:50--> 00:41:54

Cantor, the big one was being statute, take some food aid.

00:41:55--> 00:42:03

That didn't talk to him. And Ibrahim said, Malcolm, that article, it's wrong with you that you can't talk. Now no one's around him.

00:42:04--> 00:42:21

But as I said, This teaches us and tell us about his personality. Ibrahima is synonymous for the truth, to the point where even when he's by himself, he's acting out their false just to prove to himself a point as well.

00:42:23--> 00:42:26

Why don't you talk about Malcolm Malcolm taken?

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

And he said, Well, look, I know that you have no power whatsoever, and you were just those that they have built. He grabbed a sledgehammer and starts to break the ice.

00:42:37--> 00:42:46

And he leaves the big idol as it is. He goes and hands the sledge hammer on its neck, and he leaves. He leaves the place of worship.

00:42:47--> 00:43:20

The next day that people come along and they see their idols all smashed. And they call it away in rage, God who manufacture Herbie early Hatena, who did he say, Oh, God, who did this 12 gods who broke out and so they have to protect the gods. I mean, they're basically proving the argument against themselves. But God's meant to protect you. You're praying to it to protect you. But instead, you've got to protect it and stand up for it. Obviously, the knew was false. So one of them said, it was a young boy, you caught on Oh, Ibrahim, he's the one who did it.

00:43:21--> 00:43:25

They said Hurry, go loving you. Burn him, burn him.

00:43:26--> 00:43:27

One sorrow

00:43:29--> 00:43:30

and save your gods.

00:43:32--> 00:43:38

I mean, what they mean, save the ideology that you believe in.

00:43:40--> 00:43:42

The false ideology.

00:43:43--> 00:44:04

So Ibrahim, I said, I was caught. Now in our shadows, you shouldn't really go into people's places and break their idols and their crosses and all that stuff. But with Abraham Ali said, and there was the Sharia, like that, and he hadn't yet become a prophet. And he was part of the people and he was one of them. He broke his basically his own people's belief.

00:44:06--> 00:44:25

And when I brought him the story is you know, he said, Belfast who can be your own head first and we'll go in Can we have the point? Oh, no, it's the big one there. That big statue. He's the one that broke all the other idols that got jealous of them and he wants to prove that he's the bigger God. Now obviously, he's teaching them something. He's saying number one.

00:44:27--> 00:44:30

If you have too many gods they're going to start fighting

00:44:31--> 00:44:49

because he was gonna fight for thy kingdom is that correct? I mean, your own kingdom route, calls himself a god he wants God because to himself and Allah does say in the Quran canopy Hema Alia to like Allah enough. If there were more than one God in this universe, then they would this universe would be corrupted. And ah, God will fight the other God to be the main god.

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

They started thinking that's true.

00:44:54--> 00:44:58

He just wants to be the main god because the biggest most powerful he killed all the others.

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

So then

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Look that he brought him in. He said

00:45:03--> 00:45:07

brawny book is coming. You know, and we know that that can't talk.

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

All right.

00:45:12--> 00:45:22

It's not why we're doing it, man. We're trying to survive here. You know, we're trying to get some money in we're trying to get people in the small people, you know, the hierarchy. Work with us, man, we'll give you some stuff.

00:45:24--> 00:45:52

So the truth is told it myself. And they knew his lying, otherwise you wouldn't lie like he was. He was he was lying. But the lie was a type that everybody knew. So you're about to say something? Well, you know, everybody knows that you are right. Right? You know that it's not. It's no longer it's a lie. But it's not a half a lie, right? It's not a white lights to the life. But people know that you're just like on your joke. And you say, look online, it's just 00. We know, we know. We're never trying to get the moral of the story.

00:45:55--> 00:45:59

So they were almost about to sort of follow him and then he said something.

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

He said,

00:46:02--> 00:46:05

will often look OMalley article.

00:46:08--> 00:46:14

To on you and your house or famous to, it's like spinning, it's on. You shouldn't have done that.

00:46:15--> 00:46:48

But he had the right to do that. Because they were offering it though bribing him. They were trying to say, Hey, join us become corrupt like us. And he aboard that to the point where he says to to you and what you are caught, you're bribing me now. You want to share your corruption, you're gonna share your injustice to the people. And you've been using these gods to put these people down and to use them and to exploit them, to upon you, and the gods that you worship meaning and this ideology that you fabricated in order to corrupt the people that become oppressive.

00:46:49--> 00:47:00

That point they didn't like it. They were about to be exposed, you see. So the leader said, burn him, burn him burn him. And so everybody said, Yeah, burn him.

00:47:01--> 00:47:23

They grabbed me by myself, he can't talk anymore. They tied him up with ropes, and they put them in a catapult and they said, Bring all the trees and all the board did everything they kept gathering until it was the height of three storey a three storey building. In the Hadith. They lit it up. The fire was so huge that people have to stand really back. They couldn't throw him in there except for the character.

00:47:26--> 00:47:36

They put him in the catapult, they wouldn't hear from him anymore. And they released it. Ibrahim Ali salaam starts flying in the heading towards the big blazing fire

00:47:38--> 00:47:42

in the Hadith, which is I'm not sure if it's Sahil, but

00:47:43--> 00:48:14

Allah on him, it's weak. But the moral of the story is that the angel is Seraphim came to him. And he said to him, asked me for anything I'll give you the Brahim said, I have someone who's already looking after me. And then Myka eight came and said I am Allah has given me the power of controlling the climate, asked me I will extinguish the fires that I already have someone who's protecting me. And then he said his following word. Now this is the authentic God has to be Allah. When am I lucky?

00:48:15--> 00:48:17

Enough? Is Allah for me?

00:48:18--> 00:48:58

Whenever I'm in workI, and he is the best to rely on. Why you guys coming to me, you, you you. Allah is the best. And he is enough for this, my brothers and sisters is the ultimate lesson here. He is about to be thrown into a blazing fire, no doubt, and he has no power whatsoever. The angels have come to him and he can see him. And yet he says my belief in Allah is enough and so strong, that he is the only one that can say. Now brothers sisters don't misunderstand this way. You just sit there at home and you say God will say the start will say they don't do anything. It brave and couldn't do anything at all. Yet still at that point he did something. What is it? He called upon a lost man.

00:48:58--> 00:49:28

That's all he could do. If he could have done anything else who would have done it and rely on Allah at the same time has to be alone everyone Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam said, has to be Allah who are now mela key is a statement that Ibrahim said when he was thrown in the fire. No believer in the world who is distressed and full of hardship to a point where they've hit rock bottom. And they have none but Allah except they say has to be Allah never made to work here, except that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala will take them out of any hardship that they are.

00:49:30--> 00:49:34

You have to mean it from your heart. Allah says in the Quran, we're calling a

00:49:35--> 00:49:36
