As we are gathered here today to listen to the law, it will do us well to remind ourselves of the sacrifice and the spirit of the sacrifice that we are about to make. Today, the best that you can possibly do is dude, here is the urbani there is nothing that pleases us more today than to sacrifice an animal In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. My brothers and sisters, I remind myself and you we are called Muslims, because our father Ibrahim Alayhi, Salam named us Muslims, by his statement, and by his actions, Allah subhanaw taala said about this statement. I will share it on your own Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.
Allah Allah de nehmen Raja mille Lata B
tohsaka possiamo Will you comb for an AML mala?
Allah subhanaw taala said and strive hard in the in the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala as you ought to as you ought to strive, he has chosen you and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship. It is a religion of your father Ibrahim, it is he who has named you Muslims both before and in this Quran that the messenger Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam may be a witness over you, and you will be witnesses over mankind. So establish a Salah gives and hold fast to Allah subhanho wa Taala Jalla Jalla he is your molar and what an excellent molar and what an excellent helper.
Allah subhanaw taala bore witness to the sincerity of the action of Ibrahim alayhi salam, and he bore witness that he accepted his action where he said Balam Salama Waterloo little JB in one day
he got some
more hasini in
in all the water acuna Li fill, feeding in Surah Safa Allah subhanaw taala said then when they had both submitted themselves, that is Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and is virally Salam. Then when they had both submitted themselves to the will of Allah, and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead. We called out to him or Ibrahim, you have fulfilled the dream. Verily, thus do We reward the masino
Verily that indeed was a great trial. And we ran some him with a great sacrifice. And we left for him a good remembrance among the later generations and action that Allah subhanho wa Taala immortalized by making it rochlin of Hajj. And by making it something that even people who do not go for Hajj like many of us here,
who have who have not gone five this year, that we are required to do that action in memories in commemoration of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is actually, my brothers and sisters, I want to remind myself and you that the meaning of being Muslim is to submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala, without question without argument, without reservation, and without hesitation, to submit, joyfully and eagerly, this is the symbol of our trust in Him. And that trust is what earns his pleasure, and he's helped. And that is why the iconic symbol of Islam is the such that a state of total submission and helplessness, a symbol of total unhesitating obedience, a day, a symbol of total trust, and total
The life of a primal Islam is a symbol of all of these things. When as a result of his opposition to idolatry, his people decided to kill him by burning him alive. They kindled and stoke the fire, which was so huge that they couldn't go near it. So they decided to use a siege engine a counterpart to throw him into the fire. They tied him up and put him in the bowl of the catapult. As people were gathering to watch the spectacle, jabril la salon came to Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and asked him and he said, Yeah,
tell me what can I do for you? How can I help you?
My brothers and sisters, I remind you that if someone living comes and asks you can I help you? It is not prohibited to ask for help. There is nothing wrong in telling him how you can how they can help you. But there are a lot of people there are there are a lot of closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala so what does your ma Salam say to Jabra Allah a Salam was asking him this question. He is about to be thrown into the fire to be burnt alive. And gibberella salaam is coming to him directly and saying yes, Allah, tell me what can I do for you? Tell me how can I help you?
Even if a Salam says tell you I
He said I don't ask anyone other than LA.
So gibril esalaam goes back to Allah subhana wa tada and Allah subhanaw taala knows everything without being told and without being informed. Even Islam goes back to Allah.
Allah Allah Allah, Allah dolla, your Helene is about to be burnt.
Please tell me what can I do? Please How can we save him?
And Allah subhanaw taala says to him, go to him and tell him I sent you.
You went earlier on your own? He said, Tell him now that I sent you and tell him that Allah subhanaw taala is asking What do you want?
gibberellin salaam comes back? And he said, Yeah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent me and your ROM wants to know what do you want from him?
Even MLA Salam says my Rob does not need to ask.
This is the issue of tawakkol. He says my Rob does not need to ask. This is the issue of abode yet. What do I want? I want whatever my Rob wants. If my Rob wants me to be burnt to a cinder, then that is what I want. If my Rob wants me to be saved, then that is what I want. What do I want? Go and ask my Arab. Don't ask me. Because whatever he wants, is what I want. This is the symbol of Cambodia. This is the symbol of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala said in the Jilin field or the halifa, Allah said Verily, I am going to send on the earth halifa Allah Allah subhanaw taala did not say in each island field or the Moloch He did not say I'm going to send on the earth the king. Allah said I am going to

A king is not

The king has a will.
The will of the viceroy is the will of the king.
The viceroy has no will independent will have his own. What is the will? What is the will of the halifa? The will of the king?

my brothers and sisters. What happened after this conversation when the slave when the holly refused to allow the look, even if the macula gibreel amin himself when he refused to allow the makuu to intervene between himself and his rub. His rub also removed all mahalo from between himself and his life.
Allah subhanaw taala then did not order jabril la salam to do anything. Unless Renata Allah did not order Mikael alayhi salam to send down rain to extinguish the fire.
Allah subhanaw taala directly addressed the fire.
Allah subhanaw taala directly spoke to the fire.
okuni burden was Salam O Allah Ibrahim, Allah
directly, Cooney Bergen was Salam and Allah.
And Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that statement in his column in Surah, Colombia, Allah said we said, or via the coolness and the source of safety for Ibrahim alayhi salam.
When the slave refused to allow any of the Muslim to intervene between himself and Islam. Islam also removed all the flow from in between
and directly Allah subhanho wa Taala has no solid game.
The reward of tawakkol is the notion of Allah who is not subject to any of his own laws. Remember that our call comes only and only from obedience. You cannot live a life of disobedience and expect your heart to be filled with a No.
That is not the way of the MBR that is not the way Allah subhanaw taala taught us that's not how it happens.
Musa alayhis salam used to hurry used to run to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala to talk to Allah Subhana Allah so Allah subhana wa salatu salam, why do you run and come?
Why did you? Why did you hurry and come
and was on a solemn statement Allah subhanaw taala preserved it in the Quran. Allah liked his reply so much that he preserved it in the Quran as a means of guidance for us and as a as a source of hidayah for us.
Musa alayhis salam said, wa jal to la cara, de la,
la La, la to
be my rub, Lita so that you would be pleased with me.
He said I came hurrying so that you will be pleased with me. My brothers and sisters, it's an issue of attitude. Please note we are not talking about obedience and disobedience. We are talking about obedience itself. But how you obey
not the sullen obedience of prisoners, who obey out of fear of reprisal.
But the eager obedience of the one who loves Allah, and whose only purpose in life is to please Him jelajah
not somebody who's
coming reluctantly and lackadaisically and sauntering and loitering to the Salah, eventually he's praying. He's not leaving the Salah is praying is praying at the right time.
But contrast that with someone who waits for the Salah,
who goes to the masjid early,
goes and sits in the masjid and he resides in Quran and he makes some seeker and is waiting for the Salah.
There's a difference between somebody who runs to obey and somebody who obeys eventually,
from the way from his whole manner from his body language.
You can sense reluctance you can sense as if he's doing something under pressure
like those who obey Him
because of his of their love for him because of their eagerness to obey Him.
And it's in this context that we also see the dawn of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam in life
demonstrates the same spirit. And where he said, Oh Allah, if you are pleased with me, then it doesn't matter what they say. And if you are not pleased with me, then I will continue to strive until you are pleased.
Until you are pleased.
My brothers and sisters, Allah subhanaw taala tests, and he tests his ambia more than anyone else. The test is always the same, how much and how well Will you obey? Please note, the whole question of obedience, which reflects trust, comes when we don't see the benefit on obeying. When we don't see the logic of point of obeying the one who still obeys, not because he understands the reason for obey. But because for him, the reason is the order that comes from the one he loves.
He's not obeying, because he thinks the order is worth obeying. He's not obeying, because he thinks the order is logical and sensible, and so on. And so what he's not obeying, because he thinks that he will get some benefit from away, he is obeying for one reason only, because of who gave the order.
Because of who gave the order.
There is a famous story of
the slave of mahmudul. I as
I mentioned that in the further reminder today
to test as because of all sorts of jealous complaints that used to come to my mode.
Now that doesn't really give

and he gave these to other people also gave similar governance to also other people other was courteous.
And then he suddenly gave an order is a drop it.
Some of them looked at Malmo, some of them to say, Well, I'm sure you want me to drop this.
Some people went down and put it on the ground.
But as soon as mammals drop it,
there was a crash of broken glass.
And people shocked they looked, and they found as we are the bone in his head,
and broken shards of glass and crystal on the floor.
pretending to be angry. memo said to as he said, Why
don't you know the value of that thing?
As in my master, I know the value of that thing. But in my eyes, the value of your audit is boring.
If this breaks, it's okay. But I will not break your record. You shouldn't drop it or drop it.
This is the obedience of a human being to another human being. What must be the obedience of a human being to the one who created him and sustains him and because of that outcome of that creator, he takes every breath.
My brothers and sisters, the whole journey of Hutch is a reminder for us about obeying, not because it is convenient or pleasant or logical, but because we love Allah, and this is what he told us to do.
We put on the Haram which is neither graceful nor comfortable. We make say commemorating what our mother has or Allah has Salam did, she did it for a reason? For us, Allah subhanho wa Taala made her Action The reason
we stand in arafa on the day of Hajj, instead of being at the Kaaba,
we pick up stones in Muslim river and throw them at the jamara in Mina. Not one of these rituals is either reasonable or logical. But then love is neither reasonable or logical. Love is to leave all reason and logic for the only one who is worthy of being loved. Allah subhanho wa Taala
and that is why Allah, Allah Allah Allah said

On the first on the morning of creation.
On the morning of creation gibril said to me advise me and said, do not accept a heart. That is the slave of the mind.
The spirit of Odia Kobani is submission to the will of Allah. Submission when the very action of submission may well be painful to yourself. when submitting to the will of Allah may mean denying yourself something that you find pleasant,
when the submission may seem to be a source of loss or even harmful to the one who looks at it with eyes blinded by the dunya, but to the one who sees with the eyes of taqwa, as is violently Salam did, he will see the blessing behind it, he will see the beauty of fulfillment of the purpose of our very existence, innovating Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah who without question, to seek His pleasure above all else, and to be prepared to sacrifice our dearest possessions, our actions, and our desires for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Allah subhanho wa Taala said about the spirit of the Kobani about the spirit of the sacrifice.
Lay Allah Allah, Allah.
Allah Kiana Lu taqwa minquan Casa de casa
de tu Kabira la la de la basura merci Nein. In LA ha Yoda, Yoda Pharaoh anila de la mano in LA LA LA you have bucola one in Gabor. Allah subhanaw taala said it is neither the meat nor the blood that reaches Allah, but it is taqwa from you that reaches him. Thus we have made some them subject to you, that you may magnify Allah subhanho wa Taala for his guidance to you, and give glad tidings Omaha to the mahcine truly Allah defends those who believe. Verily Allah does not like any treacherous in great. The purpose of God wanting my brothers and sisters is to inculcate the spirit of submission, of sacrificing our personal desires to win the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala
and become among those who Allah subhanho wa Taala called Alma soon.
It was the blessing of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that he used to advise the women separately and especially on either day. In keeping with that soon, I would like to advise my sisters in Islam, then the example of hydrolase salam is an excellent example for them to emulate. Here was a woman who on the one hand, was obedient enough to her husband to accept the fact that he was leaving her an infant son alone in an uninhabited Valley on the order of Allah. Then she had enough tawakkol on Allah subhanho wa Taala, to know that if he ordered this, then he would take care of them. She allowed her husband to leave them and to go on his way knowing that he was doing the work of Allah.
How many of our sisters today are prepared to allow the husband to leave the homes for even short periods to do the work of the deen of Allah? For the dunya you argue gladly leave your husband for 11 months of the year for 35 years. But for the deen
you do it for the lunia because you see the value in it. Ask yourself, why is it that you don't see the value of it?
All these are issues of upbringing which we are taught and which we teach.
And they reflect the relative importance of things to us in our own eyes.
Then, when I was husband had left hydrolase salam did not sit idle, but she made an effort to see how she could secure the safety of herself and her son.
Like that action of hers of running from suffer tomorrow and back to suffer so much, that he made it a record of how janome
only then did Allah subhanho wa Taala send Djibril la salam to bring forth zum zum for them.
Then hydrolase salam negotiated an agreement with the people of your home that came there, ensuring that she and Hassan retain proprietary rights over Samsung, which was the main resource at that place. This is a lesson that is worth learning in worldly wisdom and taking care of the affairs of this life in such a way that the family is looked after.
Allah subhanaw taala put respect for hydrolase salam in the hearts of the tribal leaders so that they are honored and obeyed.
As vineries salam grew up his mother hydrolase salam put the spirit of obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala and love for his father in the heart of the little boy, such that when his father came, his father was not a stranger to him. The boy knew him he loved him, many awaited him. Then when his father Abraham Caligula related his dream to his
Son, the son immediately accepted the will of Allah. Without question.
He immediately accepted the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala without question. My brothers and sisters, all this happened, despite the fact that until that time, the father had not taken any direct part in the upbringing of the child
is Miley ceram was the product of a single mother.
But when the mother has the man and is connected to Allah, then Allah guides and protects and helps.
It is not a question of how many parents but what kind of parents.
Society is neither corrupted nor improved by children.
It is corrupted by the parents of those children, who then complain about the children conveniently forgetting their own role in their upbringing.
I remind you Please take note, I remind you please take the role of a parent seriously. If you want your children to be a source of blessing to you, and not children, whose actions will kindle the fire in your grave.
See what Allah subhanaw taala told us about the results of the kind of upbringing that Allah His salon gave to her son,
Allah subhanaw taala said
the Bible, Coca
tomorrow insha Allah.
Allah described this conversation.
And when he the son was old enough to walk with him,
How old was he? is Allah subhanaw? taala talking about a teenager? Is he talking about somebody in his 20s?
You don't say about somebody in their 20s You don't say about a teenager, he's old enough to walk, you say is old enough to walk about someone who's so young, that being old enough to walk is an event
when his son was old enough to walk with Him, He said
to my son, I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you.
So look, what do you see?
And he said, the reply, he said, Oh my father, do that which you have been commanded. inshallah, you shall find me of the salaries.
My brothers and sisters, please reflect, especially my sisters, please reflect? What kind of conversation is that? What kind of conversation is that? between a father who is over 18 years old, and a son who's perhaps less than 10.
The father tells his son about his dream,
where he saw himself slaughtering the boy. And then he asks, look, what do you see? Look inside your heart? What do you see?
funds or? Tara?
I was looking at the translation of this to see how it is translated. And I found that may Allah subhanaw taala bless and forgive the translators. When we translate the Quran, we should not put our own limited understanding in that. Allah.
funds. Oh, Ma, Tara, look, what do you see the translator rights? Look, what do you think? Allah can say? What do you think if you want to say what do you think? Allah did not say? What do you think? Allah said, ma? What do you see? Because also an author is describing a level of spiritual development that you and I can only imagine. And maybe we can't even imagine that.
Here is Brian, Melissa, I'm saying to some look inside your heart. What is that?
I don't know. If I request you to look inside your heart now and see what is there? How many of us can actually see something inside arts?
Allah knows best.
Nevada has a grim Look, what do you see? My brothers and sisters? The father stayed away all those years. And then when he comes, he's talking about slaughtering. And he's not asking instant What do you think? What is your opinion? He says, What do you see?
When I thought about this, I blew me away. What must be the spiritual development of that child that his father can confidently ask him this kind of question and expect a serious response?
Who enabled that level of connection with Allah
Who enable that level of mosquito knifes, where the child could answer?
Tomorrow, Saturday duni insha Allah homina savarin that was the work of the mother
is mainly Salaam and his whole story is not the work is not a story of the tarbiyah of Ibrahim Ali Salah, it is a therapy of the mother of the child.
My sisters, your role as a mother is simply the most critically important role that you can ever have. And that is why Allah gave it to you and not to the man
tried to wrap your mind around this and give that role the importance it deserves. motherhood is not about feeding the child's belly, but about feeding the child's soul. And for that you must know how to cook the food of the soul. It won't simply happen because you are a woman. You have to work hard, you have to make the effort. If you want a son or daughter who will not only be a credit to you, but a means of survival jariya when you are gone in plain language, it means to give them twice the time and have the money that you now give them.
My sisters I would like to remind myself and you that the notion of Allah the help of Allah comes only to those who choose to be obedient to Him.
And Allah subhanaw taala provides for them from sources that they could not imagine.
But all that is only for the Mata Poon for the obedient, not for the fasciae cone, the rebellious selective obedience is disobedience. When you pick and choose what you will obey, you are not obeying at all.
Stop fooling yourself.
You are consciously choosing to disobey. You're playing with fire, literally. Choose your actions consciously, for you will pay for them very dearly. And he said Jalla Jalla
Jalla who Maharajah
in high school,
Romania tawakkol Allah he was. And for the one who was taqwa, He grants away out of all problems, and provides for him in a manner beyond all expectation from sources that he could not even imagine. And for the one who places his trust in Allah, Allah subhanaw taala becomes sufficient for him.
My brothers and sisters, in conclusion, I want to say that in the world, in the kind of world we live in today, to build a relationship with Allah subhanaw taala is increasingly more important, since you can only give what you have. Your responsibility is twofold. You need to build a relationship for yourself, as well as to create an environment at home where this concern is voiced and worked on. Remember, you can only give what you have. Only a lighted lamp can light other lamps and illuminate so seek to build your connection with Allah. Remember that when you are lying on your back with your breath stuck in your throat, a time that will come upon every one of us man or woman.
It is only the connection with Allah which will help all your money, your power, your friends and your family will be able to do nothing. They cannot help you of which even to breathe easily in that situation. They cannot make you live. They cannot even make you die easily. So leave them and obedience to them and pleasing them by displeasing Allah and cling to the obedience of Allah no matter who is displeased. Remember that the only one who is displeased with the obedience to Allah is shaitan
who sometimes wears trousers and sometimes a skirt.
Ignore him and recall the examples of
who we follow. We do not follow the shaitan
my brothers and sisters in Islam I would like to remind you that Allah subhana wa tada for example, will not ask you which day you select fasted or for your will
and Allah will not ask you which date
you braid salado eighth, but Allah will ask you what you did to break up this oma. Allah will ask you what you did to sow the seeds of division in this oma about insisting on this day and that day. So beware of falling into the trap of self righteousness and imagining that you have this direct line to Allah and that he is talking to you personally. Let us remember that to have a difference of a
opinion is not only permissible, but is a sign of concern that our scholars and I might have for the dean. But to use that difference of opinion, as a way to attack others, and pronounce judgments on them. And to split the own mind to groups is the work of shaitan. Stay away from such people and manage them, ignore them, and don't follow them. I would like to wish all of you a wonderful day and request you in the middle of your enjoyment of eating food and meeting relatives and friends, to spare a little time to remember and remind each other of the true spirit of sacrifice, to remember and remind each other of Muslims and other parts of the world who don't have the means or the safety
to celebrate this eighth. I want to remind you that many such people who do not have the means to celebrate this aid, live right here amongst ourselves. So let us go and look for them and bring a smile to their faces and ensure that they have a good full meal today and that their children wear good clothes. May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased video and accept your worship. Hola Mundo Messiah, a Novara to all of you was Allah Allah Allah Nabeel Karim Allah Allah. He was a big main paramedic. I mean
