Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim

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

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Shara freedom BIA Eva mousseline. Mohammad Rasool Allah is Allah Allah Allah He right Ali he will serve you will send them to Stephen cathedra cathedra

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

from Abbado.

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

My dear brothers and sisters last week we were talking about

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

what built a man like Ibrahim alayhis salam, who Allah subhanaw taala generated and who loved him called him his family.

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

It was this connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala that built the man, Ibrahim Ali's

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

who when he was in his 80s

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

Allah subhana wa blessed with a son

00:00:49--> 00:01:04

Israeli salah. Then when it's made Ali Salam was still nursing. Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered Ibrahim alayhi salam to take him and his mother Hajah alayhi salam and leave them in the barren valley of Bucha.

00:01:05--> 00:01:20

Blood This route on a map from Palestine to Makkah. You remember he said Ramona, our mother had a salon walked that entire journey, who guided them? What roadmap did they use?

00:01:21--> 00:01:30

How did right but I have a laser on know that he had reached his destination. When he reached that there was a signpost there was not even a habitation there.

00:01:31--> 00:01:40

The stories of the Quran Al Karim are meant for us to reflect upon to put ourselves in that place and ask, What would I have done?

00:01:42--> 00:01:48

The answer depends on my connection with Allah subhanaw taala on my third call on Allah subhana wa

00:01:49--> 00:01:53

Bucha gotten very used to using this term tie the camel

00:01:54--> 00:02:05

thanks to COVID But seriously, we need to ask ourselves where is my Eman? Where is my real trust on Allah or on the roof of the camel?

00:02:08--> 00:02:13

Because that is schicke Tawakkol Allah as Bab worship

00:02:14--> 00:02:18

to have faith and trust in us BAP

00:02:19--> 00:02:23

is schicke using us Bob, no problem.

00:02:24--> 00:02:46

But to use the ASVAB and to imagine that you are getting benefit from them is shook Tawheed is to use something to see something happening from a place and know that it is not happening from there. But it is happening by the will of Allah subhanahu wata.

00:02:48--> 00:02:55

This is not semantics. This is not philosophy. This is Huck. This is what Islam is. Think about that.

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

Before you talk about using the rope.

00:02:59--> 00:03:06

Tie the camel. Where is our Eman? Is it on the rope of the camera? Or is it on Allah Subhana Allah diligent

00:03:11--> 00:03:19

on my dog call on Allah, my trust in Allah, the Real trust, not a claim of trust.

00:03:21--> 00:03:28

This is what your brain will esalaam demonstrated. He left them no explanation.

00:03:29--> 00:03:44

Because that was part of the instruction. Do not give any explanation. It was a test for both for hydralie, Salah and revivalism. She called out to him. Where are you going? Leaving us here? No response.

00:03:45--> 00:03:46

He's walking away.

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

Did you arrive order you to do this? She's asked him.

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

He nods his head. That's it.

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

What does he say? He says then go

00:03:59--> 00:04:03

then go. He will not allow us to perish.

00:04:04--> 00:04:07

Yeah, Allah Allah Karim. Yeah, he Yes, he's a fool.

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

Yeah hamara Hamid, where does this come from?

00:04:13--> 00:04:16

This complete faith in you Jalla Jalla

00:04:17--> 00:04:24

Yadav Have mercy on us because this is very tough. This is a very tough standard to be compared to we are not capable we are.

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

Please cover us with Your mercy and grace.

00:04:30--> 00:04:33

And forgive us. You know what we are not test us.

00:04:35--> 00:04:38

You know what we are we know what we are. Don't test us please.

00:04:43--> 00:04:47

Even when they say that when they reached a place where his wife couldn't see him, he stops

00:04:48--> 00:04:48

and he moves.

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

Listen to this.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

Rob Berra when he asked to meet Laurie at eBay in the these are interviews

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

The Biomedical Morehart

00:05:03--> 00:05:18

or a banally you cable saw that fight your IV that them in as we lay him, what was Oklahoma and va de la I love whom your school room

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

oh our

00:05:22--> 00:05:33

I have made some of my offspring to dwell in an uncontrollable Valley by your secret house the cabin in order

00:05:35--> 00:05:44

or our ramp that they may establish a solid. So fill some hearts among people

00:05:45--> 00:05:47

with love towards them.

00:05:48--> 00:05:55

And Oh Allah, provide them with fruits, so that they may give thanks

00:05:57--> 00:05:57

smila

00:06:00--> 00:06:03

Let us put ourselves in the place

00:06:05--> 00:06:13

of Ibrahim alayhis salam, assuming we can even get to where you that, at this juncture, what is the dua that we will make?

00:06:15--> 00:06:19

I think for myself, otherwise, they'll The first thing I would ask,

00:06:20--> 00:06:26

the first thing I would ask for would be safety for my family so that they can survive

00:06:27--> 00:06:28

and not become

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

a bill for the first predator that comes along.

00:06:36--> 00:06:37

Then I would ask for food for them

00:06:38--> 00:06:44

and shelter so that they can continue to survive. But what is viable is Salam asking for

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

the totally amazing thing

00:06:50--> 00:06:52

is that the primal is Salam is not even asking for.

00:06:54--> 00:06:56

What does he understand that I don't

00:06:57--> 00:07:06

he knows not just as information but deep down in his be that even Allah subhanho Donna ordered him to do this.

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

The safety of his family is a given.

00:07:11--> 00:07:23

To ask for that would really mean that he didn't understand who Allah is. And would in a way be a lack of other lack of respect for Allah subhanaw

00:07:24--> 00:07:36

taala Hola, hola. Hola. Lots of antennas beyond any examples that we can give. But it would be like you leaving your child with us with me and my wife, while you go away for a weekend and saying

00:07:38--> 00:07:41

you have a right? Please make sure that he's safe and cared for.

00:07:44--> 00:07:53

I would consider that an insult. And I would hand your child back to you and say please leave him with whoever you don't need to say that.

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

Why is Allah telling us this story?

00:08:00--> 00:08:04

Because what we wish for depends on our position and our knowledge.

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

To give you an example, when I bought a plane, I think about my seat in flight service, a nice meal, and then a nice nose to sleep.

00:08:16--> 00:08:35

The pilot also bought the same plane with me. What is he thinking? Seat food and snows? Why is he thinking differently from me? Because he's the pilot. His job is not to ride in the plane, but to fly it. His priorities are different, because of his role and his knowledge.

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

What is our role as Muslims? What did Allah subhanaw taala send us to do?

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

But what are we doing?

00:08:46--> 00:09:01

In the Bible is loves language first and foremost, not the other. He takes the responsibility for the predicament in which he is leaving his wife and baby in a dangerous place totally alone and defenseless.

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

He doesn't say well, you know, you know I had to do that. So now please take care of it.

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

He does say that. He says, I have left them in this place so that they may establish your worship.

00:09:18--> 00:09:24

Give them followers and supporters and provide them with high end fruits.

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

He's asking for fruits, high end food, fruits.

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

He's not asking for bread. He's asking for dessert.

00:09:34--> 00:09:38

He knows that if Allah subhanaw taala wants to use you He will provide you with sustenance.

00:09:39--> 00:09:44

So if I want to ask for something that I'm going to ask for the best of the highest level of it.

00:09:46--> 00:09:50

His order of precedence in the door also shows us what is truly important.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

Everything begins with recognizing our agenda and worshiping Him as is his right

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

Is everything good flows from that?

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

Then comes

00:10:09--> 00:10:15

the final test before he is to be given the job of building the house of Allah.

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

Maybe five or eight years later,

00:10:20--> 00:10:23

he returns to the place where he has left his wife and son.

00:10:25--> 00:10:27

Maybe he had no news of them until then Allah knows best.

00:10:29--> 00:10:34

But Allah sends him a dream. It's a very strange and a very difficulty.

00:10:36--> 00:10:43

Even our reserve sees that he is sacrificing his little son, slaughtering him in sacrifice to Allah.

00:10:45--> 00:10:53

Now, this is what is going on in his mind and heart as he's walking the miles back to Bucha from Palestine.

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

How easy it is to tell the story.

00:10:58--> 00:11:04

How much more difficult is the reality? It's not even to compare that I have no way of comparing that.

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

Allah tells us what happened when he reached there.

00:11:09--> 00:11:21

For a marble Allama, who's called buena, you're in the raw Phil Miami unni as baroka further mother, Tara,

00:11:22--> 00:11:31

Paul, I have a defilement to Maroussi that as you do ni in sha Allah who saw BT.

00:11:33--> 00:11:36

And when he that is the son was old enough to work with him.

00:11:38--> 00:11:44

He's not a teenager, he's not a mature man, just old enough to work with him.

00:11:46--> 00:12:04

And when he the son was old enough to walk with him, he said, he probably should have said, Oh my son, I have seen a dream that I'm slaughtering you in sacrifice to Allah. So look, fun little mother Tara. So look, what do you see?

00:12:05--> 00:12:07

Look, what do you see?

00:12:10--> 00:12:17

And he said, the sunset, oh my father, do that which you are commanded.

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

Insha Allah.

00:12:21--> 00:12:29

If Allah's Will, if Allah wills it, you shall find me of a Savi would find me you will find that I will be patient.

00:12:30--> 00:12:42

Think about that. You will every Sarah was talking to a little boy who grew up in an agrarian society where they have flocks of sheep and goats and other animals, and they eat meat.

00:12:43--> 00:12:48

So slaughtering is nothing new for him. He understand what is slaughtering.

00:12:50--> 00:13:14

In many countries, in many places, they get the boys used to this so little boys go and they they want to choose to learn how to slaughter so the fathers take them and they and the slaughters for a while you know he's violated the law has already slaughtered sheep with his own hand. Even if he didn't do that he knows what it means. He's seen this multiple times. God knows how many times

00:13:15--> 00:13:22

so when his father is angry, I have seen a dream that I have slaughter you this is nothing new to him, he understand what is the meaning of slaughter?

00:13:25--> 00:13:28

Therefore think about his answer in that context.

00:13:31--> 00:13:40

Even ever, is that I've asked Mother Tara, what do you see? He did not ask Mazza that rapid?

00:13:41--> 00:13:49

What do you think? I know the colloquial is B. You can say Mother Tara, instead of Mother docket, meaning the same thing.

00:13:51--> 00:13:54

Obviously, whatever they said, I was not asking what do you see in a physical sense.

00:13:56--> 00:13:58

But by sea is meant understanding,

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

which is not the same as think.

00:14:05--> 00:14:11

Thought is in our control. We can choose what to think. And usually that is a good place to be.

00:14:12--> 00:14:19

Understanding, however, means to see the truth behind the experience.

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

You're not controlling anything.

00:14:27--> 00:14:32

It's like a doctor, diagnosing a disease. He sees the signs

00:14:34--> 00:14:37

and understands what is happening.

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

And what is creating those signs. You're not using anything. Given a choice, he will choose perfect health for his patient, but he has no power to choose. However, on his correct understanding and interpretation of signs, lies the best chance for his patient to get the right treatment. That is the meaning of seeing and

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

That is what makes us different from merely looking.

00:15:04--> 00:15:14

The language of the Quran is extremely specific. And it is my husband is an award by Rob geladeira who that used the word he did so that we could learn from it. And of course Allah knows best.

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

In another place Allah Isabella Reserva la voz we love the fact that Google Home hello we happy loon IV. Oh, we as Merona be for in LA caramel whoo Allah Dharma and I was all while again. Dharma Kulu will Latif is sudo. Allah Allah's route that has that have not traveled throughout the land.

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

So their hearts may reason the years may listen.

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

Indeed it is the eyes.

00:15:50--> 00:16:10

Indeed, it is not the eyes in the law Tamil absurd indeed it is not the eyes which are blind. But it is the hearts in the chests that grow blind. May Allah subhanaw taala save us from this spiritual blindness and lack of understanding of what is happening in our lives.

00:16:12--> 00:16:23

Think about that this is a conversation between a 90 year old man and his less than 10 year old son, our son is saw as a tiny nursing baby.

00:16:24--> 00:16:33

The last time we saw is that with a tiny nursing baby, for the Son, this is the first time that he's seeing his father. What must have been going through his mind.

00:16:34--> 00:16:57

Think about the question he will always allow is asking is somehow we experience with Allah, not what he thinks about Allah. When will we ever reach here if we never reflect because we are stuck inside our phones. We have enslaved ourselves to our gadgets and expect technology to solve all our problems. In that case, that's fine Jana app to get there.

00:17:03--> 00:17:06

My brother and sisters his son is violet Zilla was the product

00:17:07--> 00:17:23

of having been raised by a single mother. But the way he was raised, he not only knows his father loves him and respect him. But know that he that he his father, is also love. Allah is a messenger of Allah.

00:17:24--> 00:17:34

You know what that means? And so is not surprised at the question. He has been raised, so that he is connected to Allah subhanaw taala. And he knows his heart.

00:17:35--> 00:17:43

When his father says, look, what do you see doesn't need to ask, look, well see what? He knows where to look? He doesn't hesitate.

00:17:44--> 00:17:57

He's not confused. He answers Yeah, but if Alma tomorrow, Saturday Dooney in sha Allah Who mineral slavery, oh my father. He said, Oh my father,

00:17:58--> 00:18:02

do what you are commanded. Insha Allah

00:18:04--> 00:18:08

you will find me among the patient people. I want to somebody

00:18:10--> 00:18:13

there Rob della della who love this so much.

00:18:14--> 00:18:25

That he tells us the story of what happened thereafter. Think about this. Allah subhanaw taala is our witness. He is the witness of everyone and everything no matter what.

00:18:26--> 00:18:39

But with the Prime Minister loves his family, Allah is their witness, proudly praising that. That is the difference. That is where Allah subhanho wa Taala told us their story, it says loving detail.

00:18:40--> 00:18:49

So that we can aspire to be like them. May Allah subhanaw taala help us to be people who he telogen who will love

00:18:50--> 00:19:19

Allah, Allah mas Lama what Allah who will be one other they now i Ebola he got so doc.ru in Canada, and he gonna use Zoom or Hasini in that as well. But maybe we're farther in will we leave your hands on all the what Urraca now i Li feel at Salomon.

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

Ebola he?

00:19:23--> 00:19:40

Allah said then, when they had both submitted themselves to the will of Allah, and he even when he said I've had laid him is Bayless around prostate on his voice or the side of his or inside. I was fired for slaughtering and we called out to him. Oh, Ibrahim,

00:19:41--> 00:19:48

you have fulfilled the dream, the vision. Verily thus, we reward the most you know,

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

we reward the people who have Sr. People of excellence. Very that indeed was a manifest tried. Allah is bearing witness, Jana said this was a very difficult test.

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

And we ran somebody with a great sacrifice a rap and we left for him a good remembrance.

00:20:08--> 00:20:10

among generations to come.

00:20:12--> 00:20:13

Sarah will

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

highlight

00:20:17--> 00:20:22

Miss Ella Mae safety security Peace be upon Ibrahim Ali said

00:20:24--> 00:20:32

that it was such a life was that Allah subhanaw taala gave the honor of building his house the cabin to Ibrahim alayhis salam

00:20:33--> 00:20:48

and made the place of his standing Maccabi Rahim, a blessed place and called it a sign of Allah he called it his his side and made the whole story of their obedience, the monastic the rites of Hajj

00:20:50--> 00:20:58

in whatever reasonable way to Allah Jalla gelato and Allah subhanho wa Taala made that obedience and act of worship for everyone after you

00:20:59--> 00:21:07

had your lease alive ran between the hills of AI and Manuel because she was doing her part you know, being ultra Rhino data. It was her need.

00:21:08--> 00:21:12

And Allah made that act, an act of worship for everyone after

00:21:14--> 00:21:33

is finally said I'm displayed submission and patience with the audit of Allah subhanaw taala and Allah Subhana Allah made that an act of worship for everyone who came who comes after not just any ordinary act, but an act of worship, the Hajj, the reward of which is complete cleansing from sin.

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

That story

00:21:42--> 00:21:45

is remembered and enacted and has benefited

00:21:46--> 00:21:52

uncounted millions of Muslims for 4000 years and still counting

00:21:53--> 00:21:57

that is the reward of submission to Allah subhana wa then

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

finally,

00:22:05--> 00:22:14

all this happened, because of one single but critical attitude about which Allah subhanaw taala told us and mentioned

00:22:15--> 00:22:18

that attitude as a signature of a militia

00:22:19--> 00:22:25

is called an O or a Boo was the call us learn to kneel below me.

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

When he is Rob said to him submit be a Muslim, he said I have submitted

00:22:31--> 00:22:49

to the arm of the enemy. I remember the sisters I remind myself and us are all goodness begins with submission to Allah subhanaw taala. Without submission we are outside the gate. When we submit the gate opens for us. And then Allah subhanaw taala introduces us to his Marvels and His rewards.

00:22:50--> 00:23:16

All success in this world. All power or influence lies in becoming someone that honors for that a person love and respect for him in obedience to Him and influence in his words and remembrance and words and remember as for him, long after his past and established in the hearts of people. Nobody remembers your positions. Nobody cares what you what you want. People remember what you did for them.

00:23:17--> 00:23:29

Those who love Allah benefit others and so they are remembered. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to count us among those who love Him and who he loves.

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

Are sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi together
