my dear respected Brothers Sisters elders Kula month on
Eid Mubarak to all of you.
It is Mr. Hubbs and it is the Sunnah of Rasulullah salam to remind us
about important matters in the hotbar of aid. And therefore it is very important
to stay in your place after Salah to lead and listen to the back of it.
If anybody is in a hurry, if there is an emergency, then they are free to leave. Because the whole BB eight is not for like the football drama. But if you leave, then do so very quietly and without disturbing anybody. And without greeting anybody and without hugging anybody and without saying salaam to anybody just get up and go quiet.
The better. Best thing to do is to remain your place. Listen to the hotbar and then when you leave, meet people greet people and so on and leave. This is part of the other of Adel mode aid you then it will other any other art of the other of the salaries. We know the story of evil.
Ibrahim alayhi salam went to sacrifice his son is my A sinner. But Allah subhanho wa Taala substituted him with a ramp.
Muslims commemorate the sacrifice annually in honor of Ibrahim Ali salams. Award yet
and as our own
solid solidarity with that. But is this only about the death of sheep and celebration for us? Or is there more
give families around life and the lives of his family and his wife hydrolase Allah and His son is made that is our symbols of a rule yet the obedience as slaves of Allah's Rana will data worshipping none other than Him because no one other than he
is worthy of worship.
Allah like them and their attitude and actions so much that he honored them for all time and made their story. The Archon of Hajj.
It begins with Allah subhanho statement when he praised Ibrahim alayhi salam and he said, I will lay him in a shade on the regime. If called Allah hoorah boo hoo as slim color Islam to the Arab Billa mean when is rough said to him
submit that is to be a Muslim. He said I have submitted
when he's upset to him submit which means be a Muslim. He said I have submitted he did not even say I will submit.
He said I have submitted
this is the first marker that we need to take note off and understand that all goodness begins with obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala
total obedience because selective obedience is disobedience. Islam clearly demands total obedience to Allah subhana wa sallam in the way that was demonstrated by his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Allah subhanaw taala said yeah, you are loving

enter completely and perfectly into Islam and do not follow the footsteps of shaitan verily He is
for you and to you, a plain enemy.
Allah Allah is addressing those who believe ostensively they have already entered Islam. People like us. We were born Muslim, born into Muslim homes, or we accepted Islam. Yet Allah subhanaw taala orders them to enter Islam completely. This means that those who pick and choose what they will do or not obey or not obey have not entered Islam completely. following the footsteps of shaitan Allah subhanaw taala warned us against this. Please remember that the one who follows the footsteps of someone else is responsible for his own decisions. He cannot blame anyone else for his shaitan will say to those who followed him.

So do not blame me but blame yourself follow through money Malu unfeasible? I cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in associating me that is shaitan as a partner with Allah by obeying Shaitan in the life of the Word.
there is a painful torment for the zali Moon for the evil doers.
The second marker in the life of Ibrahim alayhi salam that we need to take note of is his connection with his Rob Jana Dylan. The most beautiful example from his life is his conversation with Allah subhanho wa Taala when he was a boy, I'm not sure about that I told us about this in the Grammarly salams words
is called a Brahim or a B or unique a refer to a remote
call to mean all abala Wallah. Kili to my in quality. All of
them you know played if also one Laker two mature Allah Allah Quran Lydia Burley Minhwan.
Mother on Deen because I wa lemon law RZ is on hiking. And remember Ibrahim alayhi salam said my Arab show me our unique effort to heal moto show me how you give life to the dead.
And he almost ran out an agenda didn't know I asked him Don't you believe he violated the law said yes of course I believe but to be stronger in faith. I'm asking you this so that I can become stronger in faith.
He said Gela general who Allah Subhan Allah does it.
Take four birds then cause them to incline towards you. Meaning tame those four birds. Make them your friends, cause them to incline towards you.
Then slaughter them, cut them into pieces. man put a bow
version of them on every hill and call them and they will come to you in haste and know that Allah subhanaw taala is almighty, always.
I have spoken about this whole incident in very, and it's many implications in detail many times before so we'll not go into enough. Just suffice to say that I can't think of a more
of the connection between an ABD and his Ross.
we fast forward to another conversation, a test that was so severe that I always wonder at the strength of Eman of Ibrahim alayhis salam until I recall the earlier incident of rugby irony Cova to heal Moses, anyone who could ask that and be answered anyone who could ask that and was answered.
He's at a place where everything else becomes easy. And that is why I keep harping about creating and maintaining our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala my loss is the root cause of all goodness, the life of your family Salam demonstrates that dutifully the destined conversation I refer to is between primally Salaam and Allah subhanho wa Taala after he left his wife and newborn son in the barren valley of Bucha, which later on was called MCAS. Allah subhanaw taala told us what he says
Robina is nearest to me. Ria DbyD in Wadey these that are in WT Gulmohar.
Deb at Gulmohar around Europe banally okay most saw that video I've either done mean and
failure if either term in Sheeta he was a poem was up on me nassarawa de la la whom your score on all our rub. I have made some of my family to dwell in an uncomfortable Valley
by your sacred house, the Kaaba in Mecca. In order oh our rub that they may establish a salah they come up to Salah. So fill some hearts among men with love towards them.
And Oh Allah, provide them with fruits, so that they may give thanks.
The life threatening challenges that his young family faced are related to safety and security. Think about the sequence if you were in that place, if I was in that place, what would we ask for first, first thing we would ask for is safety. If they die, that just becomes useless. And if they are safe, they should be secured they should not be concerned about being killed or or or something kidnapped all the time. So safety and security, then food and water and then support and companionship. This is the kind of sequence that we would think yet. What he asked for is to establish Salah influence over others fruits, which is tertiary blessings, not basically not asking
strange expectations, until you understand that the one asking, knows his Rob General General and knows the key to success. He knows that everything good begins with obedience to Allah, which is the establishment of Salah
if only we understand that the rules have not changed. Everything good begins with salah. And for those who established it, Allah, Allah gives influence and his high blessings in this world. And the next. Fast forward again to another conversation, this time between a father
who is over 80 years old, and his little son
who Allah said, is old enough to work with him. Allah subhanaw taala considered it important enough to mention this, that he's old enough to walk with Him. And then he reported geladeira with a conversation, a conversation which is one
a conversation which is
one of the strangest that I can imagine.
One of the strangest conversations that I can imagine, until I remind myself about who was talking to whom it is Holly Lulu, talking to the man who is to be given the title of Zilla sacrifice for Allah. Not a man little boy at the time. But what a little boy. First listen to the conversation.
While I'm Marbella, Amara Musa all within a year in Niara film and
in Er Ah filmora
Mi N ne as baroka,
thorough all about if ALMA to Maryrose at a uni in sha Allah who may not solve it in. And when he the son was old enough to walk with Him, He said, Oh my son,
I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you, which is offering you in sacrifice to Allah. So look, what do you see?
He said, Oh my father, do that which you are commanded in sha Allah, if Allah wills
usual find me have a salary of the patient ones.
Look with, look in your heart. What do you see?
You ask a little why that and you expect to get an intelligent answer. And that to about slaughtering hymns. And remember, this little boy
knew all about slaughter, because he lived in an agrarian society with domestic animals with this rotted and ate and use their skins for their tents and clothing and so on, daily. So when his father said to him, I have seen in a dream that I'm slaughtering you, which is offering you in sacrifice to Allah. So look, what do you see? You can be sure that the little boy knew what slaughter means.
If you see his answer, you can see that he knew what slaughter meant, that it meant pain, as he had never seen before as he had never experienced before. That is why he said such as the Zuni in sha Allah who may not slavery,
do Inshallah, do what you have been ordered to do.
And enjoy Allah. You will find me among this Avi. He's saying Inshallah, because he's not sure. He says if Allah wills this will happen. As they say, the rest is history. Allah subhanaw taala declared the Divine Will is Salam had fulfilled His covenant, and pass the test and praise Him in words that are recited in Salah and his action is commemorated or honored, and will be until there are Muslims on the face of the earth.
Allah Allah never wanted human sacrifices you want to sacrifice is haram in Islam.
This was a test waiver
and so Allah subhanaw taala said for Allama ceramah water level il Jebi one day now Hawaii Ebro he got sub Dr. Ruja in Gaza Alec Anna juicy Martini in Allahu Allah Bala will movie before the whole busy behind all the ones that are gonna really feel very Salam on Allah evil are he because he cannot use Elam or has any in home in everybody in ultimate meaning I lost around Dallas and then
when they had both submitted themselves to the will of Allah, and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead on the side of his forehead for slaughtering, and we called out to him Oh, Ibrahim, you have fulfilled the dream, you're full, you have fulfilled the vision. Verily thus do We reward the Mercy known the people who do good for the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala verily, that, indeed, was a manifest trial. It was a very difficult trial. And we ransom him and we ran some game with a great sacrifice of the ramp. And we left for him a goodly remembrance among generations to come in later times salaam be upon Ibrahim alayhi salam, thus indeed do We reward the Mercy known? Verily,
he was one of Our believing slaves.
Now what do you say about
who's ima and Taqwa? Allah subhanho wa taala. Himself
so why is this all important to us today? Apart from the commemoration, it's important because it reiterates the following fundamental principles. Number one, that all goodness and success begins with complete and total obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. Number two,
to remember that we will be held responsible for our decisions, all that we choose to do or choose not to do defines brand value and character. Number three, that obedience is a result of a connection, a connection of love, without any formality.
See, which gives precedence to the one we are connected with. And that is Allah subhanaw taala generated over everyone and everything else. Selective obedience is disobedience. Number four,
that to connect to Allah subhanho wa Taala we must sacrifice those things we love, which may come in the way of building that connection. In our case, it will be all of every desire that takes us away from Allah subhanho wa Taala and obedience to Him. The question we need to ask ourselves is, what am I willing to give up to sacrifice for the last minute and I remind myself and you to remember that sacrifice means pain. And we will do it only when the reward seems greater to us than the pain when it is more important for us to please Allah subhanho wa Taala than to avoid the pain. We will try to please Allah subhanaw taala
and that is what this aim teaches us. And that is my bottom line question to myself and you. What are we willing to give to Allah geladeira
the result of Ibrahim alayhi salam is obedience and the obedience of his family was that Allah subhanaw taala made their story, their actions ritual, the the highest divisor in Islam, which is Hajj. Hajj is a reenactment of all the incidents that I mentioned, which involve Iran Malaysia has already Salam and is finally set up. Allah subhanho wa Taala made them rituals of worship for all those who came after them. Every Nabhi every Rasul every value of Allah, every scholar, every ordinary Muslim, performs these rituals without which is which is not there.
To those who to those who do Allah subhanaw taala give the highest reward, which is forgiveness of all sins, all because of the right Melissa. What a man and that is why last Rado that I said about him Karna Oma. Allah said the revival is Salam was a nation in himself.
today as we celebrate this blessed festival, it will let us reflect on the changes that we need to bring in our lives, to make ourselves in our lives obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala and on the Sunnah of his messenger Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala he was amusing.
That is the true meaning of celebrating either others to sacrifice our desires and our disobedience before Allah subhanho wa Taala and to become one of the middle of the Rahim and he said, It is not about sheeps. It's about us gulaman to me, it was to all of you, for some of the harana will carry while he was me admitting that I'm with a gun on me. Well said I'm gonna have to learn your workout.
