sallahu alayhi wa sallam Bashar Al Omar Mr. Gela to her well co llama desert in vida que la vida attend Bala will call it out and for now.

00:01:52--> 00:02:39

Brothers and Sisters in Islam today are hooked BA is about submission to Allah subhanho wa taala. And this is the season of submission and the journey of Hajj and just about every action in Hajj is linked to submission to Allah subhanho wa taala. If you think about why do we perform the tawaf seven times in particular, and why is it done counterclockwise? Not clockwise? And why is it we follow? We go up the mountains of Safa and Marwa we understand we're following the footsteps of her daughter, but how does it benefit me to follow her footsteps? Why do we throw the Jamaat and we understand that Allah subhanaw taala remove sins a major sin with every genre, but why didn't Allah

00:02:39--> 00:02:43

subhanaw taala make it in any other way to remove this sin?

00:02:44--> 00:03:31

If you look at the journey of Hajj, it began with complete submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala Ibraheem Alehissalaam he was commanded to put his wife and his newborn son in the middle of a desert, no trees, no water, no Well, no one else living around them. And what's amazing is that he didn't settle with them for three days and get them settled and build the home or some kind of shelter for them and help them find Oh no, the story began to ask him to whom are you leaving us here? And then she asked him, Allah Who America is it Allah Azza wa sallam, he is now over 80 years old, and yet he never lost hope in longing for a child.

00:03:32--> 00:04:20

So he called out to Allah subhanaw taala Rob be happily minister and in my Lord. He said he's asking for a righteous offspring. Ferber Sharna who Biloela Amin Haleem so we gave him Glad Tidings God tidings of a forbearing child. Ibrahim Ali Salam being the Helene of Allah azza wa jal, and then hula is a degree of love that is higher than just hope. And it is a degree so high that there's only room for one Halal in your heart. So Ibrahim Ali salam after this age, having a son, he loved him so much. And Allah subhanaw taala was going to test him to see if Allah subhanaw taala is his halal or Allah subhanaw taala is the only one at that high level.

00:04:21--> 00:04:59

So Allah azza wa jal says villum Bella Mara, who say so when he grew up, and he's able to walk along with him, and that's more profound because at this point, you get to see your child and their personality, you get to see some of you in him. So even it is a time when you would be more attached to the child than just in infancy, perhaps philam Baba bellava who say so when he was able to walk with them, or even assist him, Carla? Yeah Boonie in the autofill Miami as the hook he said, Oh my son I see

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

In my dream that I am sacrificing you or I'm slaughtering you, fun Dora Maga Torah. So he says, and so what do you see? So he Ibrahim Ali Salam now is involving his son in this process even though he was commanded and he wasn't commanded to involve him.

00:05:21--> 00:06:08

But if Alma took more he said, Oh my father, do what you're commanded, said you do need insha Allah Who Mina Savarin and in sha Allah you will find me from those who are patient. Then Allah azza wa jal says Fela ma s Lemma and when they both submitted and Qatada the officer of the Quran, Rahim Allah. He says As Salam ohada NAFSA Hulan Allah, what Islam ohada Ebola, he said one of them, meaning Ismail Ali Salam, he submitted and gave his soul his self to Allah azza wa jal, and the other meaning Ibrahim Ali Salam he submitted and He gave His Son to Allah subhanaw taala with Allah Julio Jabeen. So he put him down for slaughter, it came down to the last moment, and he turned his

00:06:08--> 00:06:15

head downward so as not to hesitate and not to see the expression of pain on the face of his child.

00:06:17--> 00:06:45

So and he actually began to cut complete and utter submission to Allah subhanaw taala. When are they now who a year Ibrahim God sub Dr. Roja, and we called out to him Oh, Ibrahim, you have fulfilled a row here you have fulfilled the true dream from Allah the command from Allah Subhana Allah offer they now who believe in Alvin and we replaced him with a great sacrifice in his place.

00:06:46--> 00:07:06

This is the meaning of Islam. It is an est Islam it is to submit to Allah subhanaw taala to submit to His commands to submit to the Sunnah of His Messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam to the decrees of Allah subhanaw taala in all of the affairs, not just in some of the affairs

00:07:08--> 00:07:18

and we see this in the lives of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then when it comes to the Sunnah, in particular, it is where a lot of Muslims today falter.

00:07:19--> 00:08:10

Allah azza wa jal in the Quran in surah nisa swears by himself and Allah subhanaw taala only swears by something great and nothing is greater than Allah azza wa jal he's swearing by himself, fella we're a bigger no by your Lord. Law you may known had you had chemo cathedra shedule Rabina home so Mala Ji Doofy unfussy him how Raja mimma colloid where you sell limitless Lima, Allah Subhana Allah swears by himself that they do not fully believe let me know what you heard chemo coffee messenger Robaina home until they make you judge in whatever affairs arise amongst them. And then the find no resistance in their heart to your judgment. The Mullah Judogi unfussy him how Raja min Mercado it

00:08:10--> 00:08:54

they have no resistance to the judgment that you've made, where you send limiter sliema. And they submit in an all totality completely submit, that is a true believer, and this is how the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam work when Allah azza wa jal forbade wine the consumption of wine and ask them for help and to moonta home. Are you going to desist or murder? Allahu Anhu said the entertainer entertainer, he entered the verse he said we have stopped with the system with the system completely stopped and they broke and they spilled it into the roads that they broke the containers of one and spilled it until it ran in the streets of Medina.

00:08:57--> 00:09:38

But what is amazing and assorted Allahu Anhu said for masa aloo Unha warmer Raja Aha. He said they never asked about this idea. And they never went back to this issue of it. Yeah. And he they never came back into the Rasul Allah. Is there a not trying to see if there is room if there is a gap if there is a possibility for another drink? Or is it haram for good or just something temporary? They never came and asked for more details about the ayat. This is how they work. A command comes from Allah azza wa jal, and that's it. They don't try to seek a fatwa or anything else. One of the most amazing descriptions of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:09:40--> 00:09:46

is that the scholar said not once did a Nabi SallAllahu Sallam forbid them from something

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

and they then would ask, what kind of Haram is this? Yeah, now once the problem say don't do this, and they will say Ya rasool Allah don't do it. Yeah, on a macro or don't do it haram haram never once

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

To the porcelain forbid something in this era Salah is it forbidden completely, or just you know forbidden but we shouldn't do it. They never ever did that.

00:10:09--> 00:10:26

Unlike people today always is it McCraw Evans McCoy it means it's okay. Whereas the scholars said the constant falling into the mcru will eventually lead to the Haram isn't enough for the believer. This is something disliked or even hated by Allah subhanaw taala is not enough for a believer.

00:10:28--> 00:11:13

Eat and this is not just the men but even the women when Allah subhanaw taala revealed well Leo Grebner, the hamari hinda allergy will begin that they will take the hormone product which is the plural of MMR which is the covering of the head and they will use it to cover their bosom that the Dube is the bosom. So that means they're taking this over here and bringing it to cover this area. They immediately began to rip and tear from garments to make this covering immediately. They immediately submitted today, what is hijab? Today, I'm not ready for hijab, it's a personal choice. It's not a personal choice. You can make your own personal decision when you're going to put it on

00:11:13--> 00:11:57

but there is no choice in Islam about hijab. There is no choice about fasting Ramadan, there is no choice in praying five times a day. You can make a decision to pray five times a day or you make a decision to not pray, but there's no choice in the matter. And Allah Subhana Allah tells us in the Quran, well Makana limit, meaning one minute in and it is not for a believing man nor a believing woman, either called Allahu wa rasuluh Imran if Allah and His Messenger decree or make a decision. And the ayah shows Allah subhanaw taala decrees and decides things and the process of them also makes decisions either koggala What also Omran a year Cornella human fear Ottoman Emery him that

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

they will have any choice in the matter.

00:12:02--> 00:12:14

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his companions. When the Qibla was changed, they changed it in salah they moved in Salah instantly, no questions, no resistance.

00:12:17--> 00:12:58

When the Prophet sallallahu sallam was leading the Salah, then Gibreel alayhi salam came and informed him that he had stepped on some type of impurity. So and maybe SallAllahu wasallam removed his shoes in the Salah. The Companions immediately removed their shoes in the Salah. They didn't later on or maybe it's just him or maybe it's bothering it. The old remove the shoes in Salah. They had this attitude of immediately wanting to obey immediately immediately submitting to Allah azza wa jal His Messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam so when a Nabi SallAllahu sallam was done with his salah, he said Muhammad Allah Quran, Allah Iluka in Alikum what made you remove your shoes? Curlew Raina

00:12:58--> 00:13:35

Raina aka al Qaeda and alake for alpine in Atlanta, they said they said we saw you take off your shoes. So we took off our shoes, this is in Santa Ana Buddha would immediately immediately they followed and this was their, their attitude to just instantly follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam one time and Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam saw a man wearing a gold ring on his finger. So he tells him Yeah, I'm gonna do a huddle come, Elijah, Marathi manera janela v. So one of you would take a burning coal burning ember and put it on his hand.

00:13:36--> 00:13:47

So the porcelain removed it from his hand. The man then left it there. So they tell him take it and you can take it and sell it, give it to your wife use the money.

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

But he said lo Allah, so Allah who won't do that law, who the WHO burden, a burden with Katara who Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he said, Well, Allah, I'll never take it again. After the Prophet Selim removed it, and porcelain throws something off my hand and I'm going to pick it up again, even though would have been completely valid for him, but this is the level to which they obeyed the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the level to which through which they showed submission

00:14:15--> 00:14:58

and submission is part of obedience to Allah azza wa jal incident of Buddhahood and Nabi SallAllahu Sallam led the Salah, and when the Salah was over, he said he Lu, he said, he said, everyone sit down, sit. Some companions were still inside the masjid, somewhere outside the masjid already, and some were halfway they had one foot out the door and one foot still inside the masjid, and from that group was ignoramus. When the Prophet Salam said, Sit, everyone sat where they were, ignorance Rudra Allah who sat in the doorway, because the Prophet sallallahu sallam said said, they sat down immediately. He could have just stepped back and nobody would have faulted him. But he sat down

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

immediately and the

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

Absalom saw that and he called him to him

00:15:03--> 00:15:39

guadagno Malik Robbie Allahu Anhu. He, he had loaned some money to Abdullah have never heard of that. And he didn't give him his money back. So he saw him in the masjid. And he started asking for his money back and their voices were raised. And the Prophet SAW Salem His room is right there at the masjid. So he heard their voices raised, he removed the curtain. He moved the curtain to the side. He said, Yeah, come, because he heard God wants his money back from Abdullah Dylon. He said Jakob, and he said the baker, rasool Allah

00:15:40--> 00:16:08

is here and obey at your service elsewhere, Allah, He said, Bob shutaura Dainik. And he signaled with his hand, he said, Just give him leave half of it, forgive him for half of the debt. He immediately said, but felt, even though a few seconds ago, the voices were raised, it means they were starting to get into it. But the President says leave half of your forgive half the debt, he says, but fast immediately, I have done it, I've done so.

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

And then he tells,

00:16:12--> 00:16:18

it may be hard to draw the law. I know he tells him come faculty, he says get up and then pay the rest of the debt.

00:16:20--> 00:16:58

That was it. The whole point is submission. praying five times a day submission, the timings and obeying the five timings is submission fasting is submissions that occur is submission hatches from beginning to end submission to Allah subhanaw taala and that is what Allah subhanaw taala required of us Inshallah, in the second hotbar we will look at how Allah azza wa jal describes the submission of the hypocrites Akula COLA that was tougher Allah Allah the Malik Lea welcome when Jimmy are going to first off row feroza luciferin ask Allah Subhana Allah first forgiveness indeed those who ask for his forgiveness shall prosper.

00:17:12--> 00:17:19

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Hello. I mean, what Allah early he was a big marine Amma

00:17:21--> 00:17:49

in Surah Noor from verses 48 onwards. Allah subhanaw taala describes the hypocrites and their lack of submission to Allah azza wa jal and obedience to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it's for the believing men and woman, when they hear these verses, to make sure they're like the examples of the companions that we mentioned and not anywhere similar to the hypocrites, Allah azza wa jal says,

00:17:50--> 00:18:43

we either do Illa Allah He was to Li Lea Kuma Boehner whom and when they the hypocrites are called to Allah and His Messenger, Leah Houma, Huma, singular not Lea Kuma, plural for the messenger to judge amongst them. Either for your coming home more or you don't a group of them turn away. They don't want the judgment of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam where iya Kula whom will help ya to La he moved in in Nemo codeine was serene, but if the right is with them, the come rushing to the prophets of Allah Salam. So in other words, the hypocrite, when they wronged someone, that person says, Let's go to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to judge between us. They refuse. But when they know

00:18:43--> 00:19:25

they're in the right, and the other person's in the wrong, they know that they're going to win. Now here they come in submission, they come rushing to the prophets, Allah salam for judgment. Unfortunately, many Muslims behave this way. Today, we see this in all aspects of life. Do you want Islam when it's gonna take something from you, someone else's rights and give it to them? We see this so many times in divorce and in custody and marital cases where Islam will give a husband certain rights, but the law of the land doesn't give him these rights. So in this case, the woman wants to be judged by the law of the land. She doesn't want Islam because it's going to take some

00:19:25--> 00:19:36

right away from her. Whereas Islam, if Islam is going to secure a right from her, she will immediately want the judgment of Allah and His Messenger, just as an example. But this is exactly what the hypocrites used to do.

00:19:37--> 00:19:54

I don't want Islam if it's going to take the rights of someone away from me. I need they have the right and I'm oppressing them and Islam will secure their right I don't want Islam here. But if Islam is going to secure my right of mine, suddenly I'm quoting a hadith and ayat.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

Why would they behave like this? In the next verse, Allah subhanaw taala

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

tells you what kind of person would behave like this vehicle over him modern America taboo, is their disease in their heart. These are the options there's disease in their heart, a metal taboo, or there are people who have doubt and we all know this word that it will get terrible. Love Reva V. America turbo they have doubt.

00:20:21--> 00:20:40

Amir ha funa and yeah he for Allah who Ali him Rasulo or perhaps they're afraid. And yeah, he and EME, they're afraid perhaps, that Allah and His Messenger will be biased against them. And what kind of person would think Allah azza wa jal or the prophets are setting would be biased,

00:20:42--> 00:20:49

or the other have doubt or they have disease in their heart. But Allah Iike homos volume

00:20:51--> 00:21:15

rather, they're the ones who are oppressors. They're the ones who are in the wrong. Then the next verse, Allah subhanaw taala shows you how the believers react, the proper believers how they react and the verse begins by saying in Nama and in Nama is adapt to hustle. It means the only reaction the only acceptable reaction in nema.

00:21:17--> 00:21:54

In NEMA, Colonel Cola, Mina, either do it Allah who are solely meaning the only reaction the only thing that would the believers would say when they're called to Allah and His Messenger, Lea Kuma Bay in a home to judge for the profits on sell them to judge between them and your Kulu semi Ana Wattana. What would an acre homerun monthly home that they would say we hear send me Anna will Atlanta and we obey and Allah Azza says and those they are the ones who will be successful, will likely go home and move the home. They're the ones who will be successful.

00:21:56--> 00:22:41

This is the case of many people today. Yeah, and someone has asthma and he deals with rubber in his life. You come to him and he told him smoking is haram. He has asthma and lung problems and he has no interest in smoking. So he submits immediately. Yes, smoking is haram then you tell them Riba is haram and he's dealing with ribeye, extensively what happens, excuses an economy and this and that and you have all kinds of excuses, no submission there. Or you come to someone who's a smoker and has no dealings with riba. Tell them Reba is haram. He'll tell you absolutely. Very haram, you agree with you instantly? Tell them smoking is haram? What will you hear from them? Meaning, true

00:22:41--> 00:23:26

submission isn't in issues that have nothing to do with you that you're not involved when that don't intersect or come into your life. True submission would be with the issues that are serious and important and dear to you, but Allah is Allah azza wa jal more dear to you. That is true submission, something that has a part of my life and I'm willing to give it up for the sake of Allah azza wa jal not that my readiness to give up something I have no interest in anyways. So brothers and sisters, we are to examine our lives and see what areas we refusing to submit to Allah azza wa jal in and then to make changes, not excuses, not look for a fatwa or another opinion but to make changes for

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

the sake of Allah azza wa jal

00:23:29--> 00:23:51

with that we ask Allah azza wa jal to make us of those who recognize the truth as clear truth and follow the best of it and to make us of those who recognize falsehood as clear falsehood and abstain from it.

00:23:53--> 00:24:24

We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant victory to Islam and to the Muslims and to grant ease to all the Muslims and the difficulties that they're going through. We ask Allah azza wa jal to remove this illness from the world.
