Analysing the Lives of the Prophets 23_ Ibrahim Part 5 by Shaykh Hasan Ali
wanna worry about too
Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa
salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Brothers and sisters were another session of Ibrahim Ali salaam, salaam.
And Rahim Allah Azza wa salam had made a dryer when he wants left Maccabees. I was telling you that he went in and he came out, he went in and he came out. So on one of these occasions, according to Surah, Ibrahim surah, number 14, number 37, Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, ala dewater, Lani said robina, or our load in me a scan to mean the vat of Allah I have made my progeny settle, or part of my progeny settle. Beware the innovation innovative, these are in a
valley that has got no vegetation that has got nothing growing inside them.
In the vertical moharram, where your house has where you sacred houses,
and this dryer was a door that Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam made after he had made the dryer and you can see the Baraka, this dryer is actually the essence of the Baraka of Makkah. The blessings of Marcus from this door now we're going to come back to to this diner a little while. But before we come back to this
there's another guy that he made when he was making the house when Allah azza wa jal was getting him to make the house and that is in Surah Baqarah surah number two, and number 125 onwards. So there's so this is glass that
he makes and these doors, they teach us a lot.
Because first you find that Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam has just passed this test and like we spoke about last in the last session, about trying to sacrifice his son, then Allah azza wa jal, he is now raising the status of Ibrahim on Islam. And before he announces that in the Quran in 125, Allah says what if john beta method but and in Nashua when we made the house Allah says, as a place for people to be settled, and a place for amnesty and a place of peace and security? Now, Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam is
his he's going to make this house but Allah says when we make the house now look at look at the look at the difference in the ayah because in it number one to six of sort of Baccarat says what is the color era sorry, he says number 127 is what if you're a foreigner Ibrahim we'll cover in a minute. When Ibrahim Ali Salam Salam was actually building upon the foundation from the foundation, he was he was lifting the entire house, meaning that he was building the entire house from right from its foundations upwards. So the one who actually makes the houses Ibrahim alayhi salam, but the one who Allah attributes the real one who makes the house is himself meaning Allah azza wa jal. Now, what
does that tell us? That tells us that sometimes on this earth, we might do something for Allah. But we should not be thinking about ourselves more than we should think that Allah gave me the TOEFL ability to do this. So they say the Romans say that, when somebody is praising some good work that you have done, they are not really praising you, but they are praising Allah azza wa jal, who is really behind that work. So if somebody praises me for my intelligence, they're not really praising me, it's intelligence. And again, when somebody is praising me for my bravery, it's not me who had the bravery it's Allah who gave me the ability to be brave. And thus you can go carry on about your
you know, good children, your good house, your good deeds, your good work and so on. There is no real praise of anyone except that Allah azza wa jal has given us that that is why we say Alhamdulillah that all praise, any praise wherever it exists in the world. It really belongs to Allah because you can't praise anything in this world without seeing Allah as behind that thing coming to existence or for that thing happening or being heard is so so a lot of minds is by giving us this Destin head. So he begins by saying that when I made the house when we when Allah says we he means the authority of we so you
himself in exalted and mighty. He says, when we build that house, and we made it method button in us, it's a place for people to actually settle. Now why did Allah say a place for people to settle? Is because there are certain things in this world when you actually find them or you be with them, then you get a feeling inside yourself that you don't get anywhere else. So regarding ones, even ones, like you know, your parents,
regarding your parents, What will you have? Regarding your parents, you you've had so much mercy from them, that you actually feel mercy, you should feel mercy with your parents. Of course, if they're true parents, and they live up to parenthood, then you should feel peace, and you should feel at least mercy from them. Regarding one's wife, Allah says in Surah, our room number 21. So surah number 30 I 21 it says, Lita, schooner, Elena you will find sukoon you will find calmness when you come to your wife. And same thing with the wife or the husband that each of them will find sukoon sukoon is a great serenity and calmness and so on. So that Allah has made you don't get the
same sukoon elsewhere. And that's of course, if a wife is living up to be a wife and a husband is living up to your husband right now talking about when things have sort of gone wrong. So regarding the house of Allah azza wa jal, the Kaaba, Allah said my father, he said, It is a place for people to come to settle, what does Allah mean? Allah means that they will come and they will be in the presence of the Kaaba, and they will feel that they are attached to the Kaaba. If you look at if you listen to any of the projects that actually came back, you ask them, especially the ones who have gone first time to the cover, they've got, they've got words inside themselves that describe their
journey and the way that they've come across the Kaaba, and you kind of feel that they haven't got enough words to describe the real emotions inside. It's unexpected, you can't explain it, it's, it's something that is really strange, you don't know how to describe the feeling that you have the attachment you have to the karma. And that's what Allah said that there is a great attachment to discover. And then what I'm not there is peace, there is security, and so handle, if you think about it, the peace that Allah has given, I mean, you know, you go to, you go to the heart of and and you find so many people are walking in I mean, this is this is something that is a miracle within
itself, to see so many people from so many countries, speaking so many languages, and coming together. And displaying an attitude of peace is a wonderful, wonderful experience. In fact, you've got the shears and you've got the Sudanese is one of the places in the world where the shears and tsunamis had been coming together for many, many centuries, and you've got peace, yes, there have been certain turbulences that have taken place in the past, but we're saying that there's general peace in the in the harem. And when you're at the harem, you sit there and every person wants the same thing.
Every person wants the same thing. And one of the chefs over there, he said, when I was in college once, he said a beautiful thing, you know, when you go to the car ban, everyone sort of fighting for the or not everyone, but those people who who want to really get close to the car, buy those, especially who want to get close to the 200 as well. And each one is trying to sort of, you know, get there first and each one is trying to be the one that stays near the frontline or something and you find it sometimes annoying, and you think, you know, while these people, you know, making making their way to the cabin like this. And the chef's had a beautiful thing he said that, don't you see
that every single one is actually in a fanatic sort of love for Allah sake. And that's why they're doing that. So there is a beauty within that disarray that you see around the Hydras within the Blackstone, which is that every person is really
wanting to do just to get close to Allah azza wa jal, because by getting close to these things, you're getting close to Allah was there and you feel close yourself. But the piece that is there is miraculous, because the security that they've got in a harem is actually, you know, way, way, way less than what you think it should be if it was any other part of the world.
And now if you notice, if you go on a plane, you're going on a plane, right? And the first thing is they're going to scan your bags. Second thing is they're going to take your shoes off. I can find in the hat on you take your shoes off. Third thing when you take your hat off
Right, then I'm going to do that in a hot on
an assistant job or whatever, what's inside was behind. Third thing is they're going to make you go through a body scan,
or a metal scan.
Have you ever seen a metal scan around the head on anyone through medicine? No. Know, there's no metal scan. If you think about it, it's from the viewpoint of anyone who's doing security, it's a disaster.
Anyone could walk inside there any moment, with with whatever weapon it is, and they can go there and they can kill, they can cause maximum damage. And there are bags that that people bring in, as long as there's a rucksack that will allow you to come inside.
They don't have no no way of checking every single bag at the harem for you to come in. And you think it from that viewpoint? It is dangerous, but so hon Allah Allah His words, yeah, well, I'm not they're going to stay here until the day of judgment, which is that within that, within all of that a lot of that has kept a lot of safety. And who controls that? It's Allah, Allah controls you.
The last time we had a problem that I think was the beginning of 1980 or something, but but
they had to,
you know, that evacuated to Harlem and so on now, and again, yes, you do get some people who come in and they you know, the 19 a gun, like you read about, about, you know, some guy came in thought he was the melody. So he came in with a whole army. And
they actually brought in a lot of weapons, and they killed so many people inside and he got onto the caravans, he came to be the Maddy. And even the Saudis couldn't do anything they had to call the French SAS to come in and get these guys out.
Check it up, you can find find it but it's it happens on the beginning of the 80s. And before that, you will find that you know, there have been, there have been things that have gone wrong there. But overall, if you judge it from the 1400 years of the Muslims have been around, and the level of security that has been there and the level compared to the level of damage that has been caused inside. There is no correlation whatsoever to say that you know, this is a dangerous place. A lot of gela controls that then allows us is what the hell do me mikami era hiromasa masala he says that take from the station of Ibrahim Ali Salaam Salaam. take that as a prayer place. Make that your
prayer place. The Muhammad Rahim is a small shrine that's in front of the Hydra as well. And there is a footprint of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam. And that footprint is an actual footprint of his. And it's while he was actually making the Kaaba he was he would stand on it. And he would observe how the Kaaba is looking you'd go back and carry on making with the smile La Silla Salaam. And that is being placed as a sign for us that has been placed as a sign for us that the footprint of the Bible Islamism Allah wanted that to stay until you know, Allah Mashallah and I hope you know, inshallah the our some of our Saudi brothers don't get to sort of excited with a Buddha Sheikh and so on, and
destroy that as all you know, like they've destroyed most of the things that are there, but I hope that they don't destroy that. But anyway, Allah says, take that as your prayer place. Why? Again, you think about it. matam Allah says, Mohammed Ibrahim the station, right, Brian, go around there and take that as your prayer place. Why? Because Allah azza wa jal wants us to remember and remind ourselves of where the photo of Ibrahim alayhis salaam Salaam was, what does that sound? What does that signify for us? that signifies that he has got a high station in front of them a very high station and that's purely based on the sacrifices that he made for Allah. And that has been
mentioned item 124 sort of Allah. Then Allah says why he denied Abraham. I made my my covenant with Ibrahim and is Mary aleikum wa Salatu Salam ampyra Beatty, Allah said not clean my house for these individuals for different types of individuals. Allah said Lippa, even for those who actually come and circumambulate the Kaaba, they go around the Kaaba number two arc in those who stand and devote themselves by doing ettercap and staying within the harem, or they simply the stand the unlocking tool, now just looking at the Kaaba, and number three is ruka. Those people who are in Morocco around the Kaaba and was a salute those people who are Institute around the Kaaba, there's four
things that was mentioned. Each one of these is a, there's a specific thing in this specific blessing in this so tawaf, tawaf, the only place you can make too often the whole of the world is the curb. Okay, so that's very significant to occupying, or Cuf means that you stand
Do you stay in a place and your devotion to Allah is is just that's the only devotion you have to Allah. Now you can do this in a mosquito net cough, but you can also do it in the Haram and doing it in the Haram is way different from doing it in any other place in the world. In fact, the Recon sudo that Allah has mentioned, why is Allah mentioned that specifically because the the thrill and the buzz of the of the great feeling you will get in doing a reconstitute in front of within the harem is something beyond the same feeling you will get getting in any other world and allows Magellan said well, these are the real reasons why the mustard is there. Right? The Masjid or the house of
Allah is there for this reason. Now this is not our session to go into what it is. But what I want to say is that when you come to a machine, it is more deserving that we actually worship Allah through a To recap, prayer and devotion than to actually hold other lectures or anything else. Yes, we need lectures, we need reminders. We need rules, we need lessons, but don't forget, mustard wasn't created for the masjid. The name of it is a place of salute. We bow down to Alaska.
And the other thing that you'll notice is that
when Allah azza wa jal has promised this to Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam,
and he's told him to clean this. There is no there are no idols that are here. idols appear later on. many generations later they appear. So it's Milan Ibrahim alayhi salatu. Salam, salam, they made sure that the people who are here there are no idols and the the education of giving no telling people not to have any idols. Here was something that continues to run throughout the generations. The next verse is number one to six. Allah says what is the color Ibrahim? When Allah when Ibrahim alayhi salam, he said, My Lord
egil had bellenden and our law not only the Haram, not only the Haram should be a place of amnesty and security, make the entire city of Makkah, a place of amnesty. And so again, with in terms of security, what Allah has placed in that city and you see all around, you know, you, you come there to the harem, you come there and you just automatically feel that you joined up with everybody else, you're wanting to feel that everyone's your your brother and you want to be together and you want to share things. And so this is from Allah zone. So he said make the whole city a place of amnesty. And then he makes this drama, and the drama gonna come to later on with these other ions. So they
brought him so I'm going to skip that right now. I'm going to go straight to him actually making the carbon and there's a few dollars that he makes when he makes the carbon that there are lessons from this. So we go straight to it number 127 surah baqarah Allah azza wa jal, he says, What is your father when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam Salam was raising the foundations on the house and his family? Now why does Allah say it like that? Why does Allah say when in brahmanism, raise the foundation of the house and smile, instead of saying, When Ibrahim and his mind raised the foundation of the of the house? There's a couple of reasons for this. One of them is that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam Salam is the
main person who's doing this. And he's got the hoekman is using smile as as one who's going to add another thing is that the real reason why anyone's building the car, but like if the son things, if son is married things are they set up? He thinks, wow, you know, I'm one of those who's, who's doing this. I'm one of those who's doing this, he should not forget that if it wasn't for his father, he wouldn't even be here, if it wasn't for his father sacrificed and he wouldn't be here. And there's a big lesson in this. What's the lesson? The lesson is that Allah mentioned his smile, right? At the end, he separates him is everything, Brian and Solomon is smiling, as mentioned you so he says, and
Ibrahim lifted the foundations of the house, and his mind,
you mentioned is my lecture on why? Because the great significance, Allah has Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam, and as we should realize that we wouldn't be where we are without,
you know, many of the times without our parents, and many of the times without the people that that helped us to be who we are. So don't forget that if you if you today think that you want a degree, you know, I get so I just feel so annoyed sometimes at some of these university graduates. Not all university graduates, but some of them because what happens is that they are so you know, there's a cycle here. And I don't know if it's happening in many parts of the world, but it's certainly I've seen a lot of this cycle happening in this part of the world. So what happens is that the kid, you know is or the child is with the father and mother all the way to about you know,
let's say up to
10 years of age, they're like completely dependent on them. So they listen to wherever. And then up to 1516. The mothers and fathers have made a great sacrifice, and they've given them a lot. And you know, they're still not the ups and downs between the children, the parents, but you see a lot of appreciation
16 to 18, or 19, you see college days, so you can see a bit more detachment that is taking place from the parents and the and the child. But when this child goes for four years away to university, and comes back, many times, especially when the child hasn't been staying with the parents,
at the age of 23, at age of 24, and then they you know, when they come back, and then they want to get a job. So there's another two years that hardly barely seeing each other, maybe, or some practitioner thing, sort of some practice, they've got maybe in a surgery somewhere, you know, some hospital, and now and again, they're paying a bit of tributes to the attributes of the mother and father, by the end of 2526. The child, obviously, the child is now an adult. But what I really get annoyed with is that this child now thinks this young adult thinks that there may be in life, they've got a job that moms and dads don't have, you know, they've got the knowledge and the
intelligence and the brightness that the parents don't have. They understand things that the parents don't understand. And they got experience of life, which their parents don't have. And, you know, it's the annoying part is, where did this child get Oleh, from the minister, if the parents didn't give that whole education of 20 years of education, from the age of five, to the age of almost 25? It's about 18 to 20 years of education, and they didn't help him all the way through I mean, who in the world are you? How do you just suddenly just come up and start to, you know, treat your parents as inferior. I mean, your whole essence of who you are today in your educational world, in your
working world is because of the parents and thus allows them is teaching is that when you know when the sun is receiving now, the sun is going to become a prophet, and the sun is helping is that to make the Kaaba fine. But the sun should not think that this it's a favor bestowed on him more than it's a favor bestowed on his father, and through that he's receiving part of that favor. So anyway, move on Iran when I saw some mixes drawers, and one of his straight first draw houses, or a banner top Amina, in
except from us. So our load load, except the work from us, except this car making of the car back from us. Now, it's astonishing, that Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam he makes, and
there are plenty of draws he could have made, he could have made even the second law or the third drive he's about to make, he could have made that first. But he makes the first car that are alive except this one. So what's the lesson here? The lesson here is
when when we have completed a task, we should not become we should not get excited that you know I have images that have certain brothers there are certain sisters they have
that they have completed maybe a quarter and or they're completed kind of salon or whatever it might be that they just completed. And what happens is they kind of you know, feel that this and achievement, there's no achievement without it being accepted. What is my two rockets if my two rockets, it might work as a thrown back in my face. If my Quran is not actually accepted, what's the meaning of the of the Quran, you got brothers and sisters sometimes competing with each other in harmony Carranza read over a Madonna something. So it might be like I've done, I've done 10 quarter ends and that other woman has done 15 quarter ends and you get this kind of competition. And
sometimes I sit back and think, first is why they even mentioning this. If you've done 15 quarter ends, or 10 quarter ends, that's yours. Okay, fine. You want to create a competition, that you feel that you could really put yourself in a bad position where others are talking about you and you feeling that kind of highest, but most importantly, is the kabu, which is the acceptance and that's what they say is that if a lot is an even accept this as a humble work that we've done for him, If Allah doesn't even accept it, then then what's the point of even doing that? So a login token just because Allah said do it and you did. It doesn't mean that Allah has accepted it. So that's why he
reminds us through this bar. The most important thing is that you'd be fearful of the fact that maybe I've done something which might not have been accepted. There are there's a whole culture out there today. You know, people who are trying to do things for Islam, even on TVs and radios and magazines.
And I don't know what else it is in Dawa and, you know, trying to speak do some community work and so on. And you know, the whole concern of these people sometimes it simply boils down to gossip and wanting people to know that they've done it. It doesn't boil down to what Abraham has told us it doesn't boil down to them saying that you know, I kind of feel that I have I have I haven't got this accepted has a lot even accepted the efforts that are made for him. It doesn't boil down to the boil down to your Mashallah, you know, my group, our group we did this Saturday, we were out, it was raining, you know, as to leafleting, were out there. And we got we got all this crowd inside. And,
you know, the speakers came in a crowd Marshal the whole mosquitoes fool. And, you know, we did this and
Who said that? First is why advertising? And second is who's saying that Allah has accepted it. There's people don't get excited with the amount of Facebook likes they've got. And that's that's the sign that things have been accepted. I mean, how do you know that she doesn't even click that 5000 likes, there you go. How do you know?
How do you know how you know people who follow you on Twitter or whatever? Is that you sign of acceptance. You know, I hear constantly people making reference to the amount of numbers that they've got. So it's like, yeah, you know, we've got this many numbers. And that's almost like a kind of a sign that acceptance has been made. I mean, let's go right down here. Look, here's Brian with his mind la masala, there are low making this cover. And in fact, there was not even anyone to perform Hajj.
So, again, that was another thing that Brandon was concerned about. He said, Allah, you told me to make this house.
And you want me to ask, you've told me to tell people to come here and to do the tawaf?
I can't do this. He simply said, he said, I can't do this. He said, How am I supposed to go to the world and ask all people of the world to come here and make the tour of Allah azza wa jal, he announced him, he said, Abraham, your job is to to make the announcement. My job is to convey the announcement.
And it says that time when the Bremen said and made the announcement, he just said, Oh, people come to this house, to go around do tawaf and to to perform Hajj. And he made that and it says that Allah azza wa jal, he just took that he took that, that message across to the world. And he slowly put into the hearts of the people to try and turn to this house. And that's another draw that he makes, which is which is inserted Brian which he says, that is either the Millionaire's that we elation, I want you to make all people's hearts turn towards the people of Makkah. And that's what happens that people slowly, slowly start to have a love for this. And if you actually coin that with that Hadith
in Bukhari, when Allah azza wa jal, he loves someone he called the brain and then he tells the brain to announce, he says, I love salsa, our new clothes, love song, so and then he tells the hierarchy, angels, and then they tell the other angels, other news until the angels of this world, they then start to make a boo, boo, and they start to put now make acceptance, acceptance for this person. So that means that the person becomes someone who attracts others. That is a great gift of Alaska. And we should not take these things for granted. Now, if you're a popular person, if you're a popular person, and people come to you just just like that, that is a sign from Allah. That is not that's
got nothing to do with you, nothing to do with it, you should just thank Allah, I should thank Allah that Allah has given that you know that to feed, but the most important thing is tabula, which is has accepted in the country similarly, more like you, you know, you hear everything and you know everything. Why he mentioned Semyon Ali my why because for drama, you want to believe that Allah has listened, which you know, he has, when you say he's listened, you mean that he's accepted? When you say he knows, you're trying to say that Allah knows the best thing about the future. And he knows the best thing among about my drama, and the best thing to do with my data to believe so you live to
Allah is one thing, which is to know that Allah has heard it as in Allah, you have the hope that Allah will give it but second thing is you know what, you know, you know that Allah or you believe that Allah has all the word about about you. Okay, move on to number one to eight. robina Allah, what? Muslim aney laka Allah, Allah Lord, make me and is married to people who will become subservient to you who will submit themselves to you. That's first Now listen to this guy because he breaks up
first is make me smile. submitted people who have submitted to you what mean literally yet, Tina, and maybe
From our progeny, and the people who come after us from our seed, we want you to make omega 10, Muslim and black. We want you to make a group of people who will also submit to you. We'll add in a second and show us our rituals and our rites of Hajj, whatever, Elena, and forgive us in Atlanta to Abraham, surely you are all forgiving, and surely you have a lot of mercy. Now, first thing he says here in his law is make me and his mind both of us be sub submitted to two individuals. Why is he doing that?
Because of the fact that Ibrahim alayhi salatu. Salam is given the example when if the parents don't have
if the parents
and the and the main sort of grandfather, grandmother and so on, if they don't, if you don't have Dean in your life, then it is
unlikely that that is that is going to pass within your generations. And second is if you don't become a role model yourself, then it is difficult for others to follow. So that's one lesson here. Second is that the driver that he makes the second one, make our progeny make from them a group a group of people who will submit themselves to you that Doha is about us. So here is Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, he is making it for our oma
and the oma is what made Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. There are 1000s of years, between the time that Ibrahima salon made this da until that Dr. King true.
There are 1000s hundreds of years between him making that da and between that Dr. country. So my brothers and my sisters who are listening, you know sometimes we make dua, don't forget to add your project, not the children don't say it's my children, when they NVMe drive, they said via Tina, Zhu Li Athena means our progeny means my children's children's children's children and their children, their children, their children, meaning the old way to live, that is when Leah includes everyone. So when we make law, we should make draft for that in English, you can use the word progeny, or you know, my seed wherever my seed will go, meaning all my children's children and so on, make the grant
because it's for all of them. And sometimes you don't know if the Day of Judgment is still another 4000 years away. You don't know 1000 years later you're dry you make today may come true.
You don't know and they say about the you know the Musashi the they
traveled, I know that that will that was going to fall under the men's the wall, the men's wall and the Muslims and why didn't do that. And later on, he said, Well, you know, the treasure that was underneath the wall belong to two orphans of the city. And if I hadn't mended the wall, then it would have fallen down and the people of the city would have taken the treasures before these two orphans would have grown up and taken the their wealth. They say that and Allah says in the Quran, Silvana, Abu Masada that their father was a righteous individual. And certain trustees have said that it wasn't the immediate father it was the seventh generation grandfather who would make
grandfather seventh generation grandpa so sometimes you make law today you know, your dad's gonna come into existence 1000 years and sometimes you think the other way if you if you posit it you think Suhana law, maybe my grandfather my great great great great great great grandfather mograph me for the progeny and one of that one of those guys has just reached me and and that's where I prosper So anyway, that's that's another lesson from this. He says show us our
rituals of making the making hedge analyzer did reveal that to them, but then he makes he makes a third graph. We're gonna jump straight to the third bar. What is the third bar he says Robin Oh, what about fee masuleh Minho our la rays amongst this oma make sure that you send send amongst his own mother I've just made the raffle to be a woman that submits to you send amongst them a profit meaning that you know make the birth of this whole thing happen from a profit Who's that is Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam
yet Lu Allah him so he's gonna he's gonna be amongst them but he will recite your verses on to them when you are leaving home will keytab He will teach
them your book will hikmah He will teach them wisdom, or exactly Him He will purify them for things Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is making graphics in the candelas is rocking, surely you are mighty and surely you are one that has great wisdom. Now again, there's a big lesson here, what is that? He makes a draw for the last of the prophets to be from his seat, all prophets knew that there was going to be the last messenger sallallahu wasallam, who would be the most mightiest of all prophets and so on. And they all had a wish that they could be, you know, a father to such a prophet. So he is Iranian Mashallah, making Ghana like sibsagar that from his progeny is going to be Muhammad sallallahu
alayhi salam, and he's making his daughter with a smile. And a smile is a another father of progressive loss of meaning that his great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather. Later on, we can you know, if you go right up, he becomes this Maryland's alum, and then his father is a very nice, so both his father's alehissalaam both his father's here and we can draw for him. And they say, what, what, what's the, what's the full qualities that he asked? Number one, he had to do Allah He that he would he would recite the verses of the Quran to this oma, which he did. That is the basis of Tajweed the basis of knowing how to recite the Quran, and any brothers and sisters who
don't know how to do that. Please don't think that you can replace English
reading the Quran with Arabic reading Quran, there's no there's no, you know, there is no match between the two. Yes, you need to know what the message is. And you might use English or any other language to try and find what Allah has said to you. That's what but the Arabic of reciting the Quran with Tajweed or properly that is something that is separate into separate Eva, it's a separate worship. And those of us who do who recite the Arabic You will find there are numerous benefits that Allah has given this Shiva in the cure in that there is no real light that allow give you solar installers, not to make our houses deserted without the recitation of Quran because when you don't
recite the Quran, in house, you have become like a deserted house, meaning the angels don't frequently visit your house, it's a means of moving the shape of armies is a means of moving all the evil away from yourself. It's a means of Baraka a blessing, it's a means of your risk being increased, of your provision is being increased. It's a means for the person finding a lot of
peace in the grave on the Day of Judgment, it's a means of the Quran becoming an argument for you to vote agenda, it's a means for you, that it saves you from the punishment of the grave from the punishment of Hellfire, it's a means that you know will become a thing that will make all your family have have kind of calmness and spirituality amongst them. The Quran is all of this and much much more than this. But that comes from not all of this comes from the recitation of the Quran in Arabic,
it cannot be replaced by just just reading the translation of the Quran. There are people who are who know there's a whole almost like a culture of of this in the west where people are in a thing that I can't read the Quran in Arabic, so therefore I'm just going to read the meaning of it and and I'll get the you know, that'll be it. Well, that's a separate thing that you have to do anyway to find out what Allah has said to you, but it doesn't replace the Arabic of the Quran. So any of you who don't know that, then remember that this is a really important thing. But the second meaning of this, this verse, get to Allah in it, that this part of this verse is not just to recite the Quran,
but to follow up the verses talaia through in Arabic means two things. One is to recite, and one is to follow in action, the verses that you are reciting, so it's acting upon those verses. So when you act upon the verses, when you recite the verses, that's, that's a great task of the Quran, you're done. Then what? Then Ryan rasilla salam, he says, Well, you only Makita He will teach them the book meaning that just because you have you have read the Quran doesn't give you the meaning of the Quran. That's where your English reading or going to an and not only just reading yourself, look, there's a there's a massive thing that's been said here is that he the province of the lesson will
teach them the Sahaba He will teach them the book. Now in teaching, there is a traditional way of teaching which is the teacher and students face to face in front of one another. And brothers and sisters again, you know, I know the Skype, we know the people who haven't got any other way to getting teachers to teach them. They may use Skype, they may use other things to learn that
The real teaching of face to face one to one human to human in front of one another in real life, not virtually. And that can never be replaced. It can never be replaced because Sahaba had Superbad, which means that the companions of the Prophet lasma had companionship, which means that they stayed with the proximity of them. They were in his presence in his real presence, they observed him, there's a thing about humans when they come together that behaviors have effect and others.
Think about humans is that their behaviors? how effective are others, you get you get a person who just moves from one city to another city.
And they start talking like them.
So no. So you get someone bought up one bow up in London.
And the speaking of Cockney, now I'm signed up.
The speaking is and then what happens is the new to Scotland. And after a while, they say, What? Why do we need at this time, now they speak in a Scottish accent. Why is that is because people who are around other people that it has a direct effect of your body language has a direct, like everybody's body language here will have a direct impact on others around him naturally, it just happens. it rubs off.
There are not just speech things we say, the way we behave, the way we act, it rubs off. And that thing cannot be rubbed off from one person to another person on in a virtual world. And that's the danger that we can't really replace this. I know there are people who are desperate out there who need to learn through Skype because they haven't got any other teachers around them. And then you learn by other media, social media, whatever it is, that's fine, that's fine. Please do that. I'm not saying don't do it. But don't replace it with actual learning.
Now that now that we know the book, let's say someone has told you the book, is that it? No, it does not it. It rhinoceros adds another point. He says hikma and Prophet sallallahu teaches them wisdom. So what's the difference between learning the book, and having wisdom of the book, learning the book is that you know the contents of the book of the Quran, you know, the content of the Quran, wisdom is, you know where to apply them and when not applied.
There's a difference between education and wisdom.
You becoming a knowledgeable person means that you know what to do. Wisdom is knowing when to do it, what not to do. So for example, you know, knowledge might tell you that you've got freedom of speech, and you can speak and you're able to speak, but wisdom will tell you when not to speak.
Because sometimes you know that the consequences of you speaking at this time, may mean that you may not speak again.
Yes, and sometimes, let's say for example, you've got a politician in front of you and use time, in the social media, wherever it is, and you try and become very vocal. And it means that you know, then certain things come around you and Uncle Bob is not happy with you, you know, when Uncle Bob is not happy with you, Uncle Bob can start all kinds of politics with you. And that's that's wisdom to know when to stop, when to start or how to carry on speaking, you know, this is all about wisdom. So Sahaba rhodiola, Hamad mine, were given wisdom, which is that to know how and when to be, you know, to apply what they knew from from the book. And this is something that we we need to know, Muslim
Muslim is one Who is it? Who knows about the book, who knows how to read the book, a Muslim is one who, who knows the contents of the book, but a Muslim needs to be one who has got wisdom and knows how to apply it. So sometimes in different times, you're in a different time, you can't just apply what you already know. You've got to be appropriate you got to think you got to think with with what you're trying to apply and be be someone who can blend in again, we don't mean compromise. We don't mean leaving what Allah has told us to do, sometimes is no compromise a certain thing but there's other times right, there is compromise, to get that balance is wisdom. And then most important thing
is is what
is user key that the purification because let's say for example, you know the book, you know the contents of the book, you've got wisdom, but if you haven't got a pure soul, so inside there, you've got malice, you've got hatred. Inside there, you've got
you've got the you've got the
spite of wanting to meet your spiteful or you want to take revenge. inside them. Maybe you've got jealousy. Inside there, you've got you know, a mind that wants to seek division amongst people for some reason. Well, this doesn't make you a wonderful person who can preach the deen preach the religion.
In fact, you will do damage to the religion and any
One of us who's on any level of the dean, we need to not, you know, we need to remember that all these four things are important for us to acquire. So you follow up the book with the action of reciting it. That's the first thing to know the contents of the book to try and get wisdom and wisdom. And all these things are really, you know, you get those through companionship, you can't learn wisdom from a book, you can't learn wisdom from Have you learned through being with wise people. That's how you learn you, you learn it by being and living with and having a companionship of wise people. And the last thing is purification. Again, you need to have that interaction with
the pious, and through that the purification of the soul, something that is acquired. So he makes this, this this wonderful draw of three things. So one is that he wants things to be accepted, he's more concerned about that. Another one, he wants this owner to come into existence. Another one, he wants that Prophet alayhi salatu salam to come into existence. Now. Let's go to the duar in
in Surah, Ibrahim, which is the 14th.
It's the 14th surah of the Quran, and it's a 13th of Jews. So surah number 14, and number 30. So 36 onwards, you can see 37 onwards, you can see. So he says that our law I'm leaving behind me This is when you Brian, my seven leaving the city has built the Kaaba, he makes a DA is that I'm leaving behind me.
My family in a valley where you houses where you sacred houses, but this valley has got no vegetation whatsoever. This is the original asset in the beginning. Now let's look at this. What do you say? He says, robina. Looky musala is that our law, all of this was that they actually established the press. They actually start to become people devoted to in prayer. There's a difference between praying and establishing the prayer.
A comma of Salah establishing the prayer is something that is grounded in your life. Whereas just praying is something that you just do now and again, if a person prays five times a day and they keep to the five actual times of the day so they don't make further Aqaba they don't delay the Salah they don't delay that Salah if a person actually prays on time, five times a day that's called a karma to Salah that is now the established ally in their lives. And that's what Allah told us to do. A lot of them told us to pray a lot and told us yeah, you live in Amazon. No, he hasn't told us to do just pray. He says a key musala establish the press. What does that mean? That means these five
daily prayers I've got to make grinded in my life that nothing like everything else in my life moves around, and I'm going to be well established in my own in this discipline is a pillar they are seriously pillars of my day and everything else has to rotate around them now when you have that strict with your Salah
then you've done it Harmon Salah, but please don't forget one of the things about Salah, the word akima has got crianza which means to rise and what does rise mean? Well it does it does the meaning here to is to rise above the the world. So, in the Salah, I need to devote myself to Allah and that is the real economy. So that one is that I physically established myself five times a day for my Salah. Another one is that mentally I established myself in her her eyes towards devotion towards allows them that is real, real common Salah. So he says that so that they can establish the prayers. I feel that the Millionaire's that we lay our land, make the make the the hearts of people, you
know, be inclined towards the people of Makkah. And that's why where we are today is if you feel like you want to go to the Kaaba, you feel like you want to go around the Kaaba, there's something special about the last place that that makes it what makes us want to go there again and again. And even if you've been there once or twice, whatever, you know, you don't you don't.
You don't feel that you you've you know, you've come there and it's not worth it. No. And I'll tell you if you've ever been to the club and you feel that, you know, there are people who go there and they feel you know, I don't feel the spirituality.
There's a couple of reasons why Why not? One is that they have come with a with a heart and sinful heart. Either that or number two is they have come to the Kaaba. And what they are doing is they are they are not really spiritually prepared to be in and around the Kaaba. And they're more bothered about other things around the Kaaba. Or maybe they're more bothered about the timing.
That is that is around the Kaaba that there for a short time, whatever it is, but the spirituality of the Kaaba is really gained when a person spiritually lifts the whole,
the whole attitude to the so before you go for onra before you go and you actually perform and hudge what you need to do is you need to make sure that you've got a height of spirituality in your life and then you make your journey that you will find the karma to be very, very attractive in terms of spirituality towards yourself. So what is the communist Samarra restaurant he makes the app for fruits to come to this part of the world and that time there's no vegetation house how foods going to come into your life you actually come into Makkah. When you when you come in from Medina to Makkah from Jeddah to Mecca. All of a sudden you start seeing greenness starts appearing on the
mountains of Makkah, just outside Mecca. From there on, you start seeing greenness. Now it's hot is boiling, there's hardly been rain, but the greenness still stays and that's again another miracle. And from the drive around, you can see the dog we run as you enter Mecca, you can see the dog
the amount of people that come to Mecca is from the dog.
This is law law school so that they can show you Thanks robina wallowed in Natalia my man, no fewer minority and you know, everything that we've got, whatever we hide, whatever we make apparent, you know, all of it, and nothing can be hidden from you know, in the earth or in the skies from from Alaska. And then he praises a lot and then he asked a lot.
He praises a lot and he makes Dora he thanks a lot for giving him both is married and is hot in old age. He thanks them. And then towards the end, this is a very beautiful one, we should try and make this for our progeny. What is that? And number 49 number 41 Robbie Gianni Maki masala, after he says our La Mancha should be a place for people to submit their prayers online make me an individual who establishes his friends or her praise. What means literally yet in our law, keep this person established in the whole of my progeny until they're done. Or I've been out a couple except this. Or I've been out of Philly, oh Lord, forgive me, Wiley Wiley, they and for both my parents, what do you
mean? And for all the believers, yo monokuma He said, The day that
resurrection will begin on the day that account will actually take place. The day the account will take place Allah I asked you that you that you forgive myself, forgive my parents and forgive all the believers. And what do I it is because when you make such a, you know, you should believe that allows will make your children and your children, children, people who will establish prayers. And don't think look, don't think for a moment that this might not be accepted, make make good knee and good intention, have good hope that Allah will accept this because there are many fathers who may do ask for their, for their children specifically with these guards for the children to become people
who actually established prayers, and that has happened within their lifetime. And they've seen it before they've gone to their graves. But now more importantly is that we may grab for all the believers, whoever makes duar for all the believers, if you make dua for all the believers. There's a hadith that says, For every single believer on the earth, or every single believer, because you may drop all the believers, Allah azza wa jal will give you one Hashanah, he'll give you one reward. So if you say, Allah fill me in one minute, Allah forgive all the believing men and only believe women, for all the believing men they are and for all the believing women, they are, I will get down
to you know what that means. Right now, if there are 2 billion or let's say 1.7 billion Muslims on the earth, that means that you just got 1.7 billion rewards right now. So lahoma fields a Aloma field,
and if you want to add to that, I
mean, whom what am what are those who are living and those who are dead or alive? That means that all the believing men and women who have gone by and making law for all of them for their forgiveness, Allah azza wa jal will give you a hassanal a reward for every single believer, living man or believing woman there is okay. So any any questions on today's session that we've had? Please go ahead and ask us your questions. And we'll go over the question. Yes.
Okay, very, very good. I think the brothers asking was Brian, when I saw some the first to build his car by was odd found the foundation there and then build upon it. Both of them exist in the series. So I'm not sure I mentioned that, but it's good that you reminded me that so both of those exist in the industry. So one group of scholars say that it was built beforehand, whoever allows, you know, chose to build that. And what environment I found is that he found the actual foundations, somewhere within the rocks or somewhere within the, the valley upon that he built the Kaaba. But there's other scholars who say that no, he's the one who actually started the foundations and from those
foundations he built up, and he made it what it is. And the majority of them are the strongest viewpoint is that Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam was the first to build this cover all the other sources that say there's others who come to the Kaaba beforehand and so on, they're not authentic. The most authentic source with God is that the Quran says that he's built on the foundation. Again, when you look at the words, you can take both of series, because when you say they raised from the foundations, it could mean that the foundation is already there. And when you say it doesn't raise from the foundations, it means that the foundations he built himself, he raised upon those, so both
of them can be included inside this desire. Okay, we're not going to deny the other one. But I think the strong opinion amongst the scholars is that
he'd built the cover.
Any other any other quick question? On the subject of today? Yes.
Yes. Who who make it to the to the cover so. So you just want a clarification on that? Yes. So yes, so when when I made the call, Allah azza wa jal took that voice across the world. And whoever heard it, and said Lubbock, and said, Yes, we've accepted those of the people who come and then the same voice of his travels to a place where all the souls are, who haven't yet been born. And when a restaurant they say that when the voice came to the place where all the souls were yet to be born to the world,
whoever amongst them suddenly bake, they will go to Hajj or Umrah and some of them who have said it more than once they've got that many times to the house. molars are the makers of those that make us the those who got the hogenom are accepted as well. But no one made that journey. Anyway.
Yes, it's gone last last one.
Because we have so many.
The thing is, look, if you accept the view of what the brother You know, the brother asked a question about whether the foundations were there before or not. If you accept that view, then you accept the view that there was a building there before that got destroyed. And therefore all profits or some of the profits beforehand came around there, even though they've got a but they're weak narrations. There's even generations to say that no Holly Solomon, the when he the flood came that his boat went around that place,
but the very weak sort of narrations. So based on that, if you were to take that, then you would say okay, people before him also came to that place. But based upon the strong opinion that I've said, Brian, myself, I'm being the first one to have built the Kaaba. It would mean that nobody before him was coming to that place to make the laugh, or, you know, make the other and I believe the latter, I believe that Brian Sutton was the first one to build that
After him, Allah established a place to be a place for people to come to the tawaf and so on so forth. That's what I believe. But I'm not going to deny the fact that there are other Hadees though the week to say that the place was there beforehand, for others to come and worship and so on. And later on, he got destroyed and after such a while and unlocked all the variants and to find that place to build it again. So most of them are actually there. Okay, Zach, no hydroseeding channel next week 730 for OSHA market analysis.
