Analysing the Lives of the Prophets 25_ Ibrahim Part 7 by Shaykh Hasan Ali
wanna worry about too
many? Okay, let me humbly let me know salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa salatu salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
We come to the final part about Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam he is mentioned will come again but it will come as something under others if there's a connection with others, but in terms of Ryan malice, Rotherham himself, this is the final session on that inshallah next week, we will go on to loot Ali Salaam and then move on to other prophets in Sharla.
Now, one of the things about Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam is that when he when he was in Makkah, and his smile la sala Salaam was there, he would come in again and again. And he would leave his smile la sala Salaam and he would let him grow. And finally smiler Saracen got married.
the first time that he got married, he brought martial arts when he came to Makkah. And he visited, the house of his son is married. And when he came there, he didn't find a smiling salon in the house. He found that his wife was there.
Now his wife,
she had forgotten that he was the father of her husband. So an environmental salon came and he asked about his son. So he came to the door, she opened the door, and he said, How is his smile? Where is he? And she said, Well, he's gone out to hunt.
Then he asked her about the condition. And this is where she says that they are in a lot of poverty and a lot of difficulty. And she complained about the situation and about the bad situation they're in.
Then Iran was Rossum said, Well, have you got anything that you could provide a guest? Because he wanted to become a guest? He said, Have you got any food and drink? And she said, I haven't got anything? And no, do I have anyone here.
this woman not only complained to him about the situation they were in. But she also wasn't ready to invite in binary search to any food or drink, though he was a traveler. And he had come from outside.
And the Verizon knew that they were okay. They weren't so bad. But she decided to be like that. So environment attendant says,
He then says to her that when your husband comes back, give my salon to him
and tell him to change the latch on the door.
So what happens the person leaves? And as far as talent comes, and when it comes to said, Has anyone been here? She says, Yes, this old man came this was he This is how he looked like.
And she told him who he was. And he realized it was his father.
He said, has he hasn't given me any advice? She said, Yes, he said that I should give you Salaam and that I should tell you to change the lunch of the door.
And when he said, This is my lesson, so that was my father, Ibrahim. And he told me through that thing is told you that I should, I should say goodbye to you. So he said, go and join your family. And that's going to be the end of my relationship with you. And listen to the rest of the story before you kind of think oh my god, you know, father comes and just says, Get rid of so and so and it just happened. So you know, like that. So what happens at blameless romney's is a way for some time and it comes back after a good while and he finds come back to his house in Makkah, he finds another woman and he then says Salaam Alaikum to her and so on. And then he says
how are you how's your family and so on? And she Welcome to welcome in Ramadan. Salaam. She gave him you know, she she bought him inside and so on. And he said hugging the Kibriya. I said I got something for a guest said of course of course and she gave him food and she was very good to him and honored him. And then she asked how's the family? She said, Well, we're very good and has been very kind to us and so on.
And then Rama Salaam said when when you have
comes, give him my salon and tell him to keep the latch of his dog to keep it. So he went away. And when his Christmas alarm came, he said, Has anyone been here? Yes. Who is it? Well, this kind of old person came and he says qualities. And you know, I, you know, did this song so you know the other thing that she did? And then as far as what I've said, has he given you any advice? She said, Yes. He told me to keep the latter.
He said, Well, that was my father. And he told me that I should keep you and I should not, I should not become distant from me. And then for the rest of his life, he stayed with that one. Now, what's the lesson that we learn from this? And again, this appears in our hobbies, and the genuine hobbies.
What we learn from this now I don't want people to suddenly you know, jump on and say, hey, I've got a delay. Now, if I don't like my son's wife, I just say to my son change the logic of the door. And that's it. tala tala tala Keenum saying, you know, doesn't give you the need to do that. Right. I remember one father said to his son, this was back in Bangladesh. He said, If I did, because he was the father wanted that son to get married. This also, other son said do not hurt maybe somebody else. He said, If I was to tell you to give that out to your wife, you have to tell your wife
what you know, and they give this deli and they give you another one, which is that Satan or Marina hapa Bobby alojado. He once came to the US and he complained about his daughter in law. And the professor last quarter I believe in our mouth. He asked me a few things. And then he said Okay, give talk to your wife. So they used to delete a look. I'm the father in law, I'm in charge of us a woman you give to that woman? How know that 14 in one day you haven't understood is the reason behind that.
The reason behind that is he first let me just give them
a one and then I'll give you this one. The reason behind that one we don't want to have Bob Vila on who and his son was. And nobody talks about the reason see they're all worried about this, they'll find that this is a wow. Wow, wonderful. Don't look at the reason. The reason is the wife of Abdullah bin Ahmad, this is the daughter or daughter in law of Satan.
She used to swear at Rama
Yama, you know what she's getting away with. She's getting a little better. She's yelling at
her father in law. And every time an argument is used to substitute and say rude things to him.
This is overly hapa. He just needs to take two fingers and he can twist her head. You don't say like, and he's having trouble. So he had several. And he had several patients and patients. And he tried to get the mattress sorted out until finally enough was enough. He went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he complained of such a foul woman. And when under socialism didn't say, okay, you have the right to go home and just tell your son to get rid of his wife. Now he called Abdullah Omar
Abdullah, is it true that your wife is doing this and saying these things to Omar? And he said yes, he confirmed all of it. And of course, was also lots of water looked into the matter not just like once it happened? No, it happened on a long period of time. So he said, okay, he gave him advice to get, you know, to change his wife and to replace it with another one, which he did. So there's a reason there's a good reason behind that. This reason here is the one that we're discussing is the rivalry sola Salaam is a prophet like no other. He's very high ranking prophet alayhi salatu salam, and one of his greatest qualities was that he was very, very, very generous,
extremely generous, and he taught his son, his smile is allowed to be very generous. And this was this is what the Arabs have. And I discussed some of that last week. Now for his son to have a wife that was the healer, or that was very, you know, very tight. wasn't going to really be something that environment is assembled, except that my son's chosen a wife who first complains about the family when they're okay, you know, like, everyone's got complaints, but she's okay. But the worst was, she didn't even invite She didn't even give him anything, not even drink or not even food. And he's a traveler. This was very rude in the eyes of the Arabs.
The Arabs, especially around him and his family, how he kept him was that anyone can remember the story I told you I think last week or the week before that, you know, those angels came he didn't know they were angels he brought he brought over the whole cough, roasted fat coffee farmer without them even asking
Without him even asking whether they want something, this was his whole of his character. And now for him to see that his son has chosen a woman who's going to go completely in the opposite direction, because if any children are born from this woman, they're going to get some of those qualities inside them. So that's why he said, tell your husband to change the change the latch, or the do the thing that closes the door, says, tell him to change for the next woman when he saw her that she was in a good condition she was giving, you know, a good, so she was looking after Iran. So that's when he said keep keep that woman. Now, this is the reason you got to look at the reason
behind why this prophet alayhi salatu salam did what he did. And again, I'm saying very clearly, this does not mean that we jump to the conclusion and say, okay, you know, I came downstairs and your your wife never gave me breakfast this morning. So therefore, you better change latch of the door.
You know, I'm not saying you do any of that, right? There's no Delete to try and make, you know, this evidence for you to move forward. So let's let's leave it at that. Okay. Now, Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, this was this was one thing. Second thing I wanted to say to you today is he had suffered or they were scriptures that were revealed to him they will not entire books like the totals of oranges for and so on. But there was sort of these a small scriptures that came to him. And these scriptures we don't have them today. We don't know exactly what's inside them and neither was the, the the will of a law that they stay with us till today. But most of those things the good
of those scriptures we would have, we would have actually received the you know, the goodness of in the parameter in the Torah and so on. But the mention of the sort of to Ibrahim, and to musala Sarah Sarah is the last if surah
last if sudah
Allah suddenly has gone up because Allah and in this allows, he says which is the 87 sort of the Quran, Allah says in Allah, Allah. This what I mentioned to you was also in the early scriptures. So hopefully Ibrahima or Musa in the scriptures of Ibrahim, and in the scriptures of masala Salah. And now here in surah and legend, which is the 53rd pseudo Quran, Allah azza wa jal mentions part of what was in that sort of, and there are good good words of advice. So this is sort of Belgium surah number 53 is number 37 onwards, Allah says, Allah, you know, that the Matthew sort of the Messiah, hasn't this individual in the time of the province of Alliance and hasn't been informed of what was
in the scriptures of Musa Ibrahim and lead hasn't been informed hasn't been informed of the scriptures of Ibrahim isonem. Allah He was the one who actually fulfilled all his covenant with allows them. And this is now what was in the in the sort of in the scripture of Ibrahim alayhis, Salam animals Allah, Allah 00 to zero, that no person shall take a burden of another person. What does that mean? That means that when you're on the Day of Judgment, just because you know, just because somebody else starts appointing you says he was his fault, his fault, but it wasn't your fault. Don't worry, you're not going to get blamed for that and what your parents have to do they
have to do what your children have to do, they do but you are on your own. Son, you're on your daughter, you're no, I'm on my Android. You can't just say okay, my son's gonna carry these my father's gonna carry this. We're all on our own. Then Allah says we're only selling in sunny in masa, man shall not or a human being shall not find anything except what they strive except for what they strike. So whatever you did, your efforts, you will find them well unnecessary Yahoo. So for you our and our efforts shall soon be seen in the next slide. So my you deserve we deserve an OVA. And then Allah will give us a full full reward for whatever we have done. One
and that your final destination is with you load a lot of them. Well I know who are the hackers and that Allah is the one who makes one cry and makes one laugh. And Allah is the one who makes one cry. Well, I know who I met here and he is the one lies the one that makes one cause to die. And he's the one that gives life well under who Harlequin Zelda in the Quran. Allah is the one that has created two pairs or a repair. Allah has created a male and a female from that mean looks at him from semen once it's dispersed, one knowledge initiative and that Allah has has taken the moral duty to bring back life after death or under who who will act now Allah is the one that makes people rich.
The one that keeps people in poverty and so on and so forth. These are the some of the things that have been mentioned in the sofa from the scriptures of Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam. Now, one of the main things we're going to discuss today
is going to be
about the Miller of Ibrahim Miller or the way of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam. And before we get to that, I want to mention one more ayah in the Holy Quran, where Allah azza wa jal, he has mentioned about Ibrahim alayhi wa salam as a prophet and what does he say about him? He says, what could fill kita Ibrahim Allah says remember Ibrahim in the book, meaning in this book, The Quran, in ahuka, Casa de la jolla, he was a absolutely truthful individual, a prophet. Now, this ayah in the in the Quran.
In surah, Maryam surah number 19 ayah number 41. Now there's a very interesting thing about this ayah this verse, Allah should have said, Remember Ibrahim in the book, for he was a prophet that was absolutely truthful. And instead of saying that Allah said, Remember Ibrahim in this book, for he was a he was an absolutely truthful individual, a prophet. Now he put the quality of the Prophet after Allah puts the word Cydia confessed, he should have said Namibian Siddiqa. Allah didn't say that he says to do if you ask anybody who studied Arabic, they will tell you that, you know, Sudan is a quality that is of a lesser degree than the NaVi. Navi is a great equality that should have
come first. But Allah will just switch them around. Why did Allah swish them around? Well, the lesson we learn from this is that Allah azza wa jal swish them around, because you cannot have a prophet without someone being absolutely truthful.
So if you let me do this, test this test and you'll understand, put your hands up here, if you're here, and you've never lied in your life.
I shot my shot. Even I can't put my hand up. The holodeck, not even human hair companies handle law how alone
No committee member can put their hand up. Now this is this is a wonderful this test I've done all over the country. Hundreds of people asked him put your hands up if you've never lived. Now it's not to give us a license to live. Let's start with the
satellite, I should lie as well. It's not, it's not that you make you make yourself license. But it's not that it's this idea here, which is, every human being at some point will stumble over a situation where they will lie, except for the profits.
That is a miracle in itself, that a profit cannot ever lie. And while reminescent was growing up, while Mohammed saw some grown up and every single province growing up, they would never have a record of lying ever. Now, the biggest the greatest way for you to try and catch a person who claims to be a prophet is to just look in his history. Anyone who doesn't there are going to be 30 people from Rasulullah saw last time till the Day of Judgment, who claim to your profits. Now we live in Delhi and they are not profitable.
Canada, but they are all kavaratti he said karateka in the journey that 30 of them that will be a posture to realize there will be lies to the highest degree and they will be the jobs meaning that those who lie and fabricate and make things up 30 of them but how do you find out if they are profits are not profitable? This is this is a lesson here which is just look in the history. There can never be a profit who's made lie now. We've got the you know the just look at qadiani. In India, there's no point of going in and saying all these rude things about him. This the simple thing is is odd Jani Avalon, Ahmed qadiani his own mother or mother reports. These are their hobbies. These are
she reports that when my son was young, he stole some sugar from the marketplace. Or my son was young he did this and so on. So she's she as the mother saying about her son Willa Mohammed Fabiani that he did all of these things and made from Allah Mahajan. He then makes a claim to be a prophet, so that Qatar be generous enough as a as a as a evidence we need to find any line person who claims to be a prophet.
Now, Let's now move on to
the qualities of a bright man
So that's one of the greatest qualities Allah said about him in the Quran in Surah Nisa surah number four and number one to five is what the hub Allahu Ibrahima Halina. Allah has taken and his made Ibrahim his close friend. Now, let's not understand this as Allah having a friend because Allah says in the Holy Quran another place he says makan, Allahu Allah, you know, Allah doesn't have any close Guardian out of, you know, being being lowly.
So what does it mean? What does it mean to have someone close to Allah? Why does Allah call certain servants of his idea? close ones. And then he says that he doesn't have anyone who's close to him? Well, the iron that says that Allah doesn't have anyone close to him means that he in terms of his in his kingdom as a god, he doesn't need anyone. He doesn't need to have anyone he doesn't need any prophets. He doesn't need any angels. He doesn't need any one that those is that tell us about a lobbying Wahid lashley kilo he has no one that is in partnership with him. But when he says that he has taken certain friends on the earth, that means that these people have done certain things that
have made them so close to Allah, that Allah says Allah gives a leg as an example, just as one human takes another human as opposed friend, Allah says, not in exactly the same way. But Allah says that in rank, you are a close person to me, meaning that you are an individual who has practiced and accepted and
shown to myself that you have a babe my laws and you have, you have fulfilled what others have told you to do. That's what it is. So when Allah says that he This is my world, he is my close one, it means this seven of mine out of all the other servants is the one who listens to me more. That's what it means. This seven out of all the other servants has practice the Quran or the sooner more than others. That's what it means. So when Allah has said he has taken in veganism as a close friend, it means that this seven of mine has practiced and has implemented and fulfilled more commands than many other servants that have given and that's what makes him a Felipe that's what
makes him a closer to Allah azza wa jal. Now we want to discuss what are these things that have made in Ramallah Salaam Salaam so close? Because he was so close to Allah that Allah azza wa jal told Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam to follow the ways of Ibrahim alayhi salam. And he's told all of us to follow the ways in rhinoceros and so what are these ways? One of the greatest things about Ibrahim alayhis salaam Salaam is the fact that he was such a staunch and a absolute believer and a firm individual for to hate and the oneness of Allah. This is this is one of the greatest things about the milah or the way of Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam, and that is in various parts of the of the
Quran. So I'm going to narrate to you certain verses of the Quran to try and describe what Mila is. So we have a very interesting part of the Quran, where Allah azza wa jal in Surah, Baqarah Surah Baqarah surah number two, and number 130 241. He discusses Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, and it gives us a description and he says, Why am I in Yoruba? I'm miletti, Brahim, whoever will turn away from the way of Ibrahim is nothing but a person who fools himself, while others are fine now that I have chosen him in this world in the next world, and he is showing you from those who are who are righteous and who are pious. Now if Allah horombo asleep, this is one of the one of the things that
makes him so close to Allah, this is his way, what is his way? His way is this, Allah said, Oh, he wrote him a slim, submit yourself. Allah Islam problem in straightaway, Dragon Islam said, I've submitted myself. Now what do we learn from here? What we learn from here is, you know, the, you know, the rule of God of Islam, many of us know is we know, a hadith. Those of us who take longer to try and bring those things in our practice, are those people who who have, who have not accomplished the way of Ibrahim and Islamism. But those of us who try and make ourselves follow the command of Allah. Soon it's this this, the sooner that we hear it, the sooner we were able to bring into our
lives, those are the closest to the ways of irrationality. So again, there are many, many different degrees of this. So those of us who can who can try and get the actions into our lives met no more sooner, the better we are coming closer to the ways of writing.
Okay, now, the interesting idea here, part of these irises in sort of Baccarat is
that the Jews in the
Christians, they could they continuously call us to become Jews or Christians and allies of Dell says what they're asking you to become Jews and Christians, Alice's cool Bell minetta Ibrahim hanifa say that the way we brought him alive is a lot better for us to choose. And it's more focused to the direction of Alaska that Omar cannon and machete and he was one of those who used to commit a shift. It wasn't one of those who used to be of the politics. What does this mean? This means that the Christians, those of them who assigned partners with God, who was saying that he said his ally, Sarah was the son of God. They can't be on the way of the prime minister. Because they've committed
ship it Brian, I think one of the fundamental things was his story and his oneness in Allah.
Allah then says Paulo
say this is these are the Muslims, we believe in Allah. Allah Elena that has been we believe in whatever has been revealed to us well, mountains in Iran, we believe in everything revealed to Ibrahim alayhi salam, what is mine, everything we will do is more or less from what his heart and his heart and Jaco and all all the sons of Yakuza, Mama Oto, Musa musawah, Isa, whatever musasa was given whatever he said was given, we believe in all of it, what might be you know, probably him and all the prophets from the Lord, whatever they've been given, Allah azza wa jal has has given to them.
We believe in all of them, when Allah who must be known, and we are, we are those who submit to all of this. Now, why did Allah say this? What do we learn? What we learned from this is my brother's is the best of people are those who look at their past, and they include all the people who are pious, and they don't start to differentiate between one or the other. Like the Jews, they said, Well, we believe in all these prophets, but we don't believe in visa.
And we don't believe in Muhammad Sallallahu the Christians came along, they said, We believe in all of them, including Musa
and Marisa, we don't believe in Mohammed.
And the Muslims come along, Allah says, We live in all of them, and Muhammad Allah, which makes us the best. Because we don't distinguish between one Prophet, another prophet. Now, what's the lesson that we learned from? The lesson we learned from here is that you know, in the 14 centuries of Islam that we've got, this isn't giving you an offshoot lesson from this, the 14 centuries we've got, we've got many people who came and went of the dilemma of Islam. Many people came as the sense of this religion. Many people came, who are the demands of this religion. Some of them we've heard stories, you know, don't trust this Imam don't trust this one, don't trust that one, and so on. And
then you get people in our time, who will say, Well, I I believe in, you know, I reveal all these colors, but not those of the 14 centuries of Islam. And there's others who will say no, I revealed those but not least, of the 14 centuries of Islam. The best of us, according to this ayah is, we regard whoever was good in the 14 centuries in the sight of Allah, whoever was good, we regard them as good.
And whoever wasn't in the sight of Allah, we don't regard them as being good. And Allah says to us, what tilicho oma to the harlot. This was a nation that has gone by law, harmonica, Sabbath, welaka Makka septum, they they received the reward of whatever they did good, and you will receive the reward of whatever you've done. Good. What does that mean? That means just because you are now Allah start to say to the Jews first, just because you ascribe to Ibrahim alayhi wa Salaam and you say, Brian was so great, doesn't make you great.
You know, just because I'm an
almighty of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam just because you're a follower of Mohammed Coronavirus, and doesn't make you great doesn't make any great.
Let's not start these, these rules. What makes us great is if I live up to the rissalah and the message that Mohammed Salah symbol, if I live up to that, that I'm great, not just because I'm going to link with him. What makes a Jew good is not because he's a Jew, and he's got a connection with Musashi, I don't know if he lives up to the scripture of Moses. And if he lives up to the 10 commandments, if he lives up to whatever Allah revealed, that time that makes him a good Jewish person, but not just the fact that they ascribe themselves to this. So again, it needs 14 centuries that have just gone by what makes me good is not because I've got a certain certain people that are
so great before me, and I say Oh, Imam Abu hanifa Imam Malik was mom Shafi mom, so you might oza him and so on. So integrating even casalino songs or songs or songs or you know, I'm ascribing myself to them. That means, you know, they're high.
I'm high that doesn't make you hot
because their deeds
with them, and your knees myleeza without. And the only way we become good in the sight of Allah is to implement the goodness of whatever there is in the religion. That's what makes us good. So that's, that's one big, big lesson here a second is not to differentiate between them. So we don't sit here today and start to do Riba and backbite. The Islam, there are many different Islam, many different predecessors they had in this religion, and we should respect and honor all of them. And if somebody has done something wrong amongst them, the law has a very clearly voila to a new American Yamato, you will not be asked about the action that they did.
You will not be asked about the action they did. So if somebody wants to pull me up and say, Do you know that this man did this in this what you got to do with me?
Do you know Imam Rabbani Did you believe in this and you didn't?
Do you know email policy minimum soon, so email, and this ad in the queue, follow up this follow up this month have been this creed in this, they did this ad that will got nothing to do with me.
That person did his deeds, that person is going to his grave and is going to answer to his door on the Day of Judgment. I will go in my grave. And I will answer to a lot of the data. That's the best thing to say not to get into the river and the backbiting of the amount of the past even if they've done something wrong, leave it to Allah that allowed me to judge that's not being the judge. And then moving on.
From here from the past that brought humanity alayhis salam had, what was his Milla? What was his way?
This is in Surah. Ibrahim, Allah azza wa jal uses a description for him he says Shakira, voluntary and moromi. He was very grateful for the gifts that Allah gave my brother's let me make this quite clear to you.
If I asked you,
is there anybody who has got troubles in their life? Doesn't matter if it's a small thing that's bothering you, or a big thing that's bothering you? Could you handle?
If you're not putting your hand up? I don't think you know what my question was. Everyone's got something in their mind about Thank you. Now put your hands up, if you've got gifts from Allah that you pleased with.
Thank you. Thank you. That's everybody answered the first question by putting their hands up. And everybody answered the second question. By putting their hands up, you know what that means? That means every human being has got problems. And every human being has got, every human being has got gifts from Allah, some have got more gifts than others. Some have got more problems than others. Some are in greater problem than others. Some have been compensated with greater gifts than others, but end of the day will roll even Steven. Okay, we're all in the same boat. So what does it mean? This means that look, if you want to go on in life, moaning it's ongoing and like moaning about the
problems that I've got, you can moan and your moaning will carry on till you die.
Your moaning will go on until you die, you probably moan down there as well.
You might, you know, they put me down in a very tight space.
They could have made a bit bigger for me. You can carry on moaning as much as you want. But me I'm going to end up and you're going to end up in the same place.
But if you want to say look, I've got a problem. So Has everybody else got problems? Instead of me moaning why don't I just Just be happy? I just thank Allah that was the quality of revivalism and that's why he said to his man listen to change okay to replace his wife because his wife was
just complaining when she had things things were okay she you know, no one's gonna ever be without problems the guy if you think you're gonna be without problems
or you know some people they think if they get the money if they get the money they'll be out of problems
you're gonna be you might be no problems because money can buy certain things.
Can money buy love Tommy?
Can money buy manners?
Can money buy respect? Real respect.
You can get respect because people want your money and well that's not respect. He doesn't need to get money thing Yeah, I'm respecting the only respecting him because you got money. You want real respect one day where some you know, clothes that don't show you respect will go into place where people don't know you can see if you get respect. That's you. That's not your brand new without your money.
Can money buy good behavior? Can money buy trust? It can't. So money's not the money's not the way out. You got problems as he joined the world.
Welcome to the world. Right? But the thing is what he did is that he kept on thanking Allah for his his gifts. This was one thing he's Allah says about one thing he loved about the environment. And this is I surah number 16 is number one to one and he said the same thing but that would Alessandra kept on Thank you.
Bla, that's the thing Allah loves. Now, I'll give you a scenario. If you have, if you have a son, you got two sons and one son. You know, he just wants more and more and more than and you give it to him. He's happy for a day and after a day, he's back to normal again. After three days when the novelty has died out, it's back to normal again. So you give it to him again because you love him as a Sunday. Give it to him. Like Okay, thanks, dad. I love you. I love you. Thank you. So again, it's a kiss and hug for the thing that he just received. And you know, we as a father, you know, you're the father, after three days is back to normal again, son when you listen to me again.
Yeah, shala inshallah, inshallah. inshallah.
After three days back to normal, when you got a second son,
who, if you don't give him something, he still gives you hug, he still gives you a kiss. And he still says that I love you.
Now, you know, to have more love.
And that's the thing that Allah mentioned earlier. I've got all these servants.
And I'm gifting I give the 777 He's always giving, he's always giving us and those of us suddenly receive something Oh, la, la, la, la, la, la la.
La sees that. And there's others who might not receive something from Allah. But this is saying
that the server, those are the servants, Allah loves and that's what Allah mentioned here, about a message estaba who Allah chose him. If you show if I show thanks like that to Allah. The second thing will be that will be true of me. Allah will choose amongst people. What
Allah guides people to guide you the right when I set out to the right path. Well, Tina who feel dunya Hassan and I gave him good in this world. We're in a hula hula dilemma saga and in the next one, I will make him from the pious. So this is part of the Miller on the way of Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam. Now another another Ayah
This is sort of necessity number four is number one to five losses woman accelo Dena min, min, Astana hulin, who will be who can be better in terms of his religion than the person who has completely submitted his face to Allah? And he's trying to excel in everything he's doing? And what I mean letter Ibrahim hanifa. And he follows the way of Ibrahim alayhis salaam Salaam which was straight to a Lhasa del Allah system. What is that? What What do we learn from this? What we learn from this is
to to become, you know, like you got, I'm gonna say one thing here, and maybe you've heard it in some of my talks before but there is a serious thing here which is, you know, Allah azza wa jal, what he did is he made some of his prophets
come to a place, think of him so deeply, and for such a long period of time, that they could think of nothing else in their 24 hours, except for Allah Zota. See, this was a very deep quality that Allah gave his, his prophets. So I'll give you the ayah for this in the Holy Quran. And this wasn't just Ibrahim alayhis salam, this was other prophets. So this is Surah number 38. And number 45, and 46 was good or a bad Anna Ibrahim. Remember my servants Ibrahim, what his heart and his heart Why are poor and Yaqoob only he will absorb people of great strength and vision, great insight and strength. In a class now whom we hardly certainly club down. I made Ibrahim and his heart and
jacoba, Lancelot, solemn I made all of them become politically inclined, and we completely free for the remembrance of the next world for the next slide. That meant that they spend so much time in just thinking about a lot of Jelena returning to Allah, that they will, that they will full of the mentioned and the remembrance of the ACA more than this dunya. Now, what I mentioned to you little earlier, which is that you might have heard me say some of this in my other talks, which is, you know, this age of technology, a lot of it diverts us continuously diverts, and it doesn't allow my mind and your mind
To sit, and to be concentrating on one thing for a long period of time, people what they're doing either on the phone, smartphone or something. And they're flicking through this few seconds here, two minutes here, three minutes video clip, and two minutes, WhatsApp, three minutes telegram and four minutes email, five minutes back on the web again to this did the fact
this this message that message this message that mentioned this video, that video this image that image.
And after a while, you know, after one hour is gone, or even the TV or the computer, whatever gaming world is, what is done is that is segmented the thinking is given loads of small chunks of thinking. So those thinking, thinking, switching, switching, switching switch from this to YouTube to that that other industries from this to that to that throughout. And it doesn't allow a person to have a long period of time focusing on one thing.
This is something that they
had, and in our in our seat of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he certainly had that which was it says in his Syrah that also allows me to sit for a long period of time with our Walker the alarm. And both of them used to just think,
think and thinking about a particular situation or the oma or how to how to change the oma. But they're just thinking. Now this this long period of time of thinking this was one of the seafoam qualities that the ambia electricidad Sonam had. And and if we want to become good individuals, you know, sometimes you just need to switch these things off, or give it a time in the day you say, this is the time that is going to make me look at this data. I'm not saying get rid of your phones. I'm not saying you know, go home and just smash it with an axe or whatever. And tomorrow regret it. I'm not saying that. What I'm saying is, is that you don't allow it to imprison you. Don't allow to make
your mind continues to be, you know, floating, it's so many things distractions are not one thing. One of the things you Brian and I still have some had is this. And when Allah has said in the Holy Quran, the Islam oh god like this, this is sort of the Messiah and we want to fight. It means that you focused on Allah. That's one of the good things that Allah liked about environment assassin. So it doesn't matter what situation he's in, he's focused on law, he's in the fire, focus towards the bar, he's in the temple focus towards the bar, meaning the temple to try and break the idols. He's got people who tell him they're gonna kill him, focus towards the law. He goes towards Makkah
focused on the law, he Allah tells him leave your son, leave the sun and leave your wife here focus towards Allah, Allah will look after them. A lot has become sacrifice, focused was a lot less told him to do that, as it focused on another quality to build that take some time to try and dig it inside this. Okay, another quality that we come of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam is that whenever Allah tested him, he passed his tests are one of the tests that he gave him. And how long did he live? In various Hadith he says that Ibrahim Hassan lived for 200 years, he had a life of 200 years. And when you reach the age of 120, this is various ahaadeeth. And they're all good change and so on.
When you reach the age of 120. Allah said to him or Ibrahim, I want you to get circumcised.
He didn't he didn't have you know, like most of us were born and then someone circumcised we don't even remember, the humbler. We don't want to remember. All right. If you still remember, you're in deep trouble. Right? So it happens, you grow up. Don't know what happened. And that's the best thing that you get done when you're young. And this is advice to my, to my brothers out there. Especially my MongoDB brothers out there, multi families because they really keep in late.
They have a special day for that a special function for it. They wait till the child's grown up to four or six or seven. And then they do the circumcision. Ouch.
Ouch. So I can say, yeah, the baby's born. Ask the doctors you can do the circumcision two weeks after the birth.
Nananana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, you know, he's gonna feel the pain is gonna feel the pain that we're
Now, imagine seven years old, hey, we're having a party today was the party who we circumcising you
grabbing them to like, you know, seriously this many families out there.
They grab him, they take him, you know, and they hold him down, pin him down and they learn how Lola
and actually it's a scar.
His life, he's going to remember that for the rest of his life. I don't know you got local anaesthetic and you got everything else that makes it more easier. But back in my days, man, he had none of that you gave me you put him in there. Yeah. So this this is the norm now my advice is please, you know, will the family just get it done earlier, the better and my other advice to please is, do not go for the cheap doctor.
You know, like you're gonna hear circumcision for my child is 40 pound here at pan here. 200 pounds 150. There, and you're gonna say, Oh, 45 one are very good. 40 110 have,
you know, a cheap doctor? Yeah, he's gonna do a cheap job. Yeah, you might as well call it a ripoff.
You know, you know the cheap one. Seriously, you know what you want to do? Ask the parents who've had their children circumcised with certain doctors. Two years later, one year later, three years later, How is everything?
Ask them. This is the best way you get advice. You want to go to Hajj Rafi, don't look at the TV with these glamorous pictures. five star hotel. They're the Yeah, they'll give you 5000 for two days, and they'll dump you 45 minutes away in another hotel they didn't tell you about. So don't look for adverse and domestic things. Go and speak to the people who want to go and speak to the people who've actually had the children circumcised and asked what happened after that for next two, three years, four years. And they say you know what, that was a good one. Just spend the extra money and get it done. Because the people know how long this is really serious. There's men and women, as
husbands and wives, they go and get a circumcision done. And then afterwards, they have to go and get reset from size because of the damage that was done. And as a result, save our children. But please just spend the extra money, get a good reference and then go with that undo. But no, we did reminisce at our son's case. What did Allah do? Allah said to him at the age of 120 years of age, he says, oh, Ebrahim, I want you to do your circumcision.
So what did reminescent do? A Brahma sang to himself at the age of 120. And he did it himself.
And that is no the courage of every man.
No local anesthetic, Baba, there's none of this injection business. He just did it himself. And you can imagine why Allah said that I gave him so many tests. And he passed for atom mahana he completed all of his tests. Now, okay, guys, you know, I don't want you to freak out and think, whoa, imagine Allah tells us do something like that. No, no, this is his Holly. This is his close one is telling you to do is he hasn't given us that hook. Okay, so take it easy, guys. And don't think that, you know, he's gonna turn one day and say, guys, go and do something. Yeah, it's not gonna be the case. But you can see what the rank of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam was there for that, for that reason. So
in Surah, Al Baqarah, surah number two and number one to four you can see it looking to see to be in the environment, as I said, I was told to fulfill the command of Allah azza wa jal, and he just fulfilled the command of Allah zildjian. Now,
we have yet we have a we have a Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam talking about
Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam.
And one of the things he said about him was his courage, his generosity. So once this is in Buhari,
the people asked, they said man, a columnist, he said, Who is the most generous of all people? So Rasulullah Salzman read replied. He said, a kurama, whom, at the most generous of all people are those who are the most God conscious. They said, We're not asking you about this mystery of Allah. So profit and loss, was it okay the most generous of all people? Is Yusuf Allah, Allah, the prophet of God
ibnu Nabila, who was the son of another prophet of Allah azza wa jal, who was the son of another prophet who believe in law of the of the closer to God, He means Yousuf, the son of yaku, the son of his Huck, son of Abraham, when I saw this, these were the most or you could say the most generous of all. They said Mr. Avila, we're not asking you about this. So then he said for unmad in Arabic, a saloon and he said, then you're asking me about the Arab people meaning that our people of today they said yes minister of Allah. That's when he said Korea roofing Jia Jia helia, Thea roofing Islamic evapo he said the best of the people in the ignorant days are the best of the people in
Lamb wants to gain a deep understanding of Islam. So what does this tell us? This tells us again, first, it tells us about the generosity of environment as Russia, which was very high. Well Rasulullah saw some himself says how generous he was. But the second thing is that we understand from this hadith is that those of us in our days of ignorance when we come to Islam, those of us who will gain a good deep understanding of Islam, with the best of the people of this day, and that applies to all the people of today. So, you know, you might feel inside yourself. Well, I haven't contributed to Islam so much, you know how good I am? No, no, no, no, you gain a deep good
understanding of Islam, you will be the best. And what does it also mean? It means that, you know, the leaders on the streets, the leaders in the streets once, once they come to snap, they're going to be leaders in the Masai they're going to be leaders in the way of Allah they're going to be leaders in in spreading good Islam and giving good Dharma they're the best, meaning that the best would have been out there in the holidays, or they're going to be the best in Islam like or Morocco, the Allahu anhu, who was so strong against Islam once he came in this time, he was so strong against the enemies of Islam. But most importantly, this hadith tells us about the Quran and the generosity
of Ibrahima Salaam, which went through through his his sons. Now, the final thing I'm going to say to you is that we don't, we should not create a culture of trying to
trying to say that this profit was greater than that profit, my profit is greater than your profit. We don't do that. So in Rasulullah, sallAllahu this time this actually occurred when there was a whole great sort of controversy about who was greater than who so the Jews of course in the merciless allotments time they were trying to say how great musallam was, and the Muslims started to argue with them and say how great Mohammed Salah last month, and some even had disputes about Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, and who was in Bangladesh, Rotterdam, the the Prophet that they could have ascribed to. Now if you look in the Quran, where Ibrahim on Islam is mentioned in sort of
Bukhara is a wonderful way that a lot placing him in the midst of so many different things happening. So to give you a nutshell, in a nutshell, what happened is, the Jews in the province of the last time they were accusing Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam of turning away from the Qibla of Jerusalem, because he prayed towards now when he was in Makkah, he prayed with both the Tablas. So he prayed towards the Kaaba in a direction way Jerusalem was right in front of him. But when he came to Medina,
Makkah was this way, and Jerusalem was that way. So he had to turn to one or the other. And because the Muslims at that time were facing Jerusalem, he faced Jerusalem this way.
And for 17 months after that, Allah said in a row prayer, he told Mohammed Salah Lawson to turn away from Jerusalem, and face McCallum Khurana make that his law. When that happened, the Jew said how can they be the people of the book? What kind of people are the book it is because all the people have looked at they turned to Jerusalem which was a fact. And they accuse the Muslims of not being close to Allah azza wa jal because they're not on the right similar the same network as the, the polytheists. And Allah reminded them know who made this was the Prime Minister.
Whose Qibla was this, Brian when I said asthma
and his son smiled arisa and who says that this one better that one better Nana, the ones who are the closest to me are the closest rival assemblies what Allah mentioned
in our next we run the levena tomorrow, though, if you wanna say equals to Rahim,
you gotta be close to Mohammed Salah alcoholism. That's what a lot of you and in the midst of all our all of that, Allah azza wa jal, he kind of says to the to the people in them perhaps the last time, he says, Look, you're fighting over this and you say, who's turning to what direction? Don't you see that the father of all these prophets was Ibrahim, and he's the one that built the Kaaba. And I'm telling you to follow the ways of Ibrahim restaurant, which is to be generous, to be kind to be to be hospitable and so on. So why don't you just follow, follow this? And Allah azza wa jal says, well, it is better to follow irregular sounds way than to follow any other way that you you've
kind of made up so anyway, the point of this is
the point of this is that we don't show that one is greater than the other so probably some last minute time even had to tell his his followers. He said to them that you don't say that I'm better than musallam though he was better than most of us and he said, Well, if Russa was alive today, then he would have had to follow my way if musasa was alive, but he asked him not to cause those kinds of arguments for no reason because you're not going to get anywhere with those kinds of arguments.
right and if the if the, when Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was sitting with his companions, they asked him about the description of some of these prophets, how do they look? And when he said according to Zaha Hadid, he said about Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam, he said if you want to know how Ibrahim has looked, he said look at this, this companion of yours, meaning that look at myself. So the solar system was trying to say that he was closest in resemblance to how Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam looked, and so in grammar sort of lived for 200 years. Finally he was buried in Hebron,
which is in St. humbler DC I had the opportunity to visit that Masjid
it's by by the Jewish history and by the Muslim history, both of us agree that that place is the place of Ibrahim alayhis salaam Salaam burial place, and in the Sudan, look, look at look at our laws made it in that place. That one place, you got the cover of irregular s&m? You've got the cover and the grave of a circle. So now, you've got the cover in the grave of jacobellis. And you've got the cover on the grave of us all for profits. And the wife of grandma
Sarah, and one of the wives I think of is heartless lambs also, they're buried in the same place. As very unfortunate. What happened is that again, you know, we Muslims have lived with these people for 13 and a half centuries in peace. There's been peace, and what they did is one of their people comes right, this is not the most Muslim, this is basically the cobalt and the graves are right underneath a mustard. So you got the masculine about 15 feet down, or the cobalt on the graves, right and there's a small hole that you can actually see right down to 15 feet down. Now what happens when you will know this about 1012 years back? One of the Jewish settlers came inside the massive massive
Bramhall in Hebron. And he shocked, I think killed or injured about 400 Muslims and father time.
So what they did is then they closed the masjid
for six months. And after they reopened it again, before this, only the Muslims had occupation of this Muslim for since the beginning of Islam.
And now they divided the masjid half for the Jews and half for the Muslims. So there are 10 days in the year that Muslims are even not even allowed to go in a Muslim. And they have 10 days or some other days they give the Muslim some extra days. But the very scary thing is that the same thing, the same thing they're about to do to Mr. Moussa.
So one of their settlers again comes in just a few days ago. Shoots bombs and these are police that come with them to do this. And they close the mustard. And now in the parliament the discussing about dividing muscle oxygen. So mellado gel protect this mustard mela will protect all our massage it allows will liberate that place. I mean, again, our thing is we don't want the Jewish people to be thrown out of that that's not our mission. Our mission is to live in peace. When the Muslims have ruled that place. All three religions have been able to live there in peace and history is our witness. When the Christians came in that place, they tried to kill everybody. They killed I think
40,000 people one day when the Crusaders came 40,000 people Monday
when the Jews came, you can see what's happening and in history as well. History shows what has happened in that place, but only when the Muslims have been there. We've welcomed everybody to come and share the peace. So we ask Allah azza wa jal that he keeps that place in a way that all of us can share. It is up no hype.
Next week, inshallah, we will go to the story of Nutella syrup and then we'll move to his heart and I Sam jacoba News.
