Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala
Salah, just livan Kaziranga Sierra.
My motto. My Raven sisters, we are on the lessons from the life of Ibrahim alayhi salam.
And we are talking about primarly salaams
devotion to Allah subhana wa tada to his devotion to water heat.
And we were talking about what Ibrahim alayhis salam
is dialogue with the people is questioning the people and what happened with them. In Surah Surah Allah subhanaw taala also mentioned Prime Minister Rama gay. And Allah said and recite to them the story of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam who asked him what do you worship? And they said, We worship idols, and to them we are ever devoted.
He said to them, Do they hear you when you call them?
Or do they benefit you? Or do they arm you? They said no, but we found our fathers doing the same thing.
To think about this, it's always the same excuse.
Not only with worshipping idols, you might say, Well, you know, I'm not worshipping idols.
But if you take many other things that we do,
all the superstitions, we have all the negative customs and practices we have, all of these also come under
things which we need to get rid of. And usually when you ask people why do you do this, they say no, but this is our customer. This is the practice this is our culture. This is what we have learned from our forefathers. Take, for example, two of the major areas of deviation.
One is marriages, and the other one is funerals.
All the kinds of death ceremonies and birth ceremonies and all the kinds of marriages, the customs and practices in it.
All of which Islam has not
told us to do. And in many cases things which Islam is directly prohibited. For example, in our part of the world in the subcontinent, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, custom of taking money from the girl side,
dowry taking money from the girl side, for the
for the groom for the man to marry the girl. This is the ages completely and totally Haram. And it is something which is the opposite of what Islam prescribes. Islam prescribed for the man to give a gift which is called the dour, not the dowry, which is called the
the man where the man gives this to his wife to be before he marries her. Now this is what Islam prescribes. We do the opposite of that. And if you ask people, why do you do that isn't all about you know, this is a custom and this is what we have been doing in this in our culture and so on and so on. The whole issue of Islam is what is Islam Islam is to follow the orders of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the way that rasulillah salam Salam followed them, which is called the sauna. So what is culture in Islam? In Islam culture is not what the Arabs do. Culture is not what the Indians do culture is not what the Africans do. Culture is not what the Chinese do. Culture is not what the
Europeans do culture is what Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did
we have a single sole point of reference as far as everything in our lives is concerned and that is so easy. It is so simple. It is so
you know, it is it's something that is
that is so what's like, what's the best word for that? I mean, you know what I'm saying? It's, it's, it's, it's, there's no complication, there's no complication, there is no confusion. We don't have to look at different things and you know, think about this time and that just do what Rasulullah sallallahu did, and do not do what he did not do and if you are in doubt about whether he did something or not
Then clarify the DOD First,
check and clarify the doubt. And in your doubt, if you find that, yes, he did it, you clarified the doubt and you and you have become clear about it, then you either do it or you don't do it, depending on whatever you found out. That's it.
Now, what is so complex, complicated, complex models? This is the easiest thing in the world.
In despite that, despite the ease of this, if we continue to fool ourselves, and who do we have to blame? Tell me.
This is what the people said to him, why do you do that? Or what do you know this is August? So Allah subhanaw taala is, is telling us that?
And then they said, so he asked them, and then he said, Do you observe that which you have been worshipping?
You and your ancient fathers
weighed in all of these ads, if you look at these ad offers, what he says is dialogue with Italy, please don't do this. Even though your ancestors did that. Just because the ancestors just do something. He doesn't make it right. Look at the thing by itself and see whether it is right or not. And what is our way of finding out if something is right or not, we see for salasar what is right is what the prophet SAW Selim did, what is not right is what he did not do. And then Eva when
he mentioned, he brings himself into it. And he says that very early, they are enemies to me say they saved the love of the Halloween. He said, I am against all of these practices. I am against all of these gods that you worship, and these gods I consider them to be my enemies, except Allah subhanaw taala I do not worship anybody else. And then he is mentioning Allah smarter. He says, Who is he? Allah, Allah, He is the one who created me, and he's the one who guides me. And then he is the one who feeds me and gives me to drink. And when I'm ill, he cures me. Now think about this, this is the other this is the respect this is the huge
you know, the the relationship between bramalea ceramah data, on the one hand is this closeness and love that you cannot imagine. Where he asked Allah subhanaw taala Robbie, Arnica to his mother, my Rob, show me how do you bring things back to life. So it's a very easy and a very comfortable relationship. But at the same time, Reimer Islam never crosses the boundary of other between the ABS and the rub between the slave and his master, slave and his data. Because see and desire, he's saying, He is the one who created me and he is the one who guides me so he's talking about online is saying, this is the one right? He's pointing his finger saying, He is the one who created me, he is
the one who guides me, he is the one who feeds me, he is the one who gives me to drink. And then he says when I am ill, he is the one who cures me. He would have said well he is the one who makes me sick and he is the one who kills you because at the end of the day illness also comes from Allah subhanaw taala but he does not say that out of others even though even though he How did he fall sick because this was the mercy of Allah This was his color. This is what Allah has done for him did the sickness didn't come from somebody else yet? Because the sickness is a negative thing is causing pain to develop he's not saying oh he's the one who caused me pain No, he does he is the one who
make me sick No, he says when I get sick when I fall ill He is the one who cures me takes me out of this pain right take care beautiful the other programs See also they do I will come to that inshallah. But very prevalent Sallam left his family in,
in Makkah mokara his wife hydrolase, Rama mother, and his newborn baby is my lazy Lamb who was born with Allah gave him this baby, this son after decades of worship after many many years of making dua, Allah gave him and then Allah subhanaw taala is the one who brought him in why why would you run with a Salaam otherwise come from all the way from Palestine, to this
country completely? Middle of Nowhere place. Obama's been to that place before he didn't know that there was this value of Makkah there and so on and so forth. Who told him all this? Well, how did you find direction to that place? How did he know even the place existed? But all of this is what Allah subhanaw taala guided yet when he's making dua, he does not say voila, you because of you. You are the one who told me to bring these bring my wife and son and leave them here. Now please protect them.
After the no unless he says Oh Allah, I have brought my family and left them in a valley which is uncultivated, which is uninhabited
and what so that they may establish your worship? Leo crema Salah.
Now this is the
the beauty of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and his connection with Allah subhanaw taala.
And when I'm ill, he chose me and he and he is the one and who and who will cause me to die and he's the one who will cause me to die, and then will bring me back to life again, and who I hope will forgive me my faults on the Day of Judgment after all of this relationship, he does not say he will forgive me, I hope he will forgive me again other inshallah, how is it possible that Allah subhanaw taala I mean, he's the Dalai Lama. He is the old as a mineral ambia named Sam. He is the father of the of the MBA alums.
He is forgiven I mean, he alums and there's no there's no doubt about that. But this again is the is acknowledging the glory and majesty of Allah, acknowledging the hadith of Allah acknowledging the the absolute power of Allah subhanho wa Taala to do anything, we don't take a lot for granted. We don't act as if, you know, we don't act as if Allah has to do something. No, Allah does not have to do something. This is why our solar system also taught over Cydia for the Llano you know, we make Dr. Salah are the end of the salami Sara be nice. Enough sizzle Mancha, takfiri. Allah I have committed I have transgressed against myself. Right. So please forgive me. I mean, you just pray to
us. Right? And what translation, the translation there is that yes, I've read. But is my prayer worthy of you? Is my prayer something that fits your glory and majesty? Have I worshipped you as it is your right to be worshipped? Obviously I haven't. So what do I What do I do? I say, Well, I have prayed, but this is not is not fit for you. So I say Allah, please forgive me. This is who I am. I'm a poor man. I am nothing. I am a faqeer I'm a big daddy, I'm a
destitute, I've got nothing. The only gift I can bring for you is my own sins. I have a gift to bring for you.
So I bring this prayer. I mean, I'm standing here I'm praying you. I'm praying to you, because you have allowed me to pray to you. I am praying to you, because this is your Hong Kong. And I am most grateful to you that you allow me to pray to you. But my prayer is
to say that it is not worthy itself is not worried is so poor, it is so bad. It is so division. It is so full of mistakes, and it's so full of all kinds of
you know of love law, of thoughtlessness of heedlessness that, really I feel so ashamed to bring this prayer and submit it to you and say Allah, please take this from me. Because
how can I How can I bring something like this and present it to I am ashamed even to present this allottee in his
said, I wish I would have been born. This whole general admission wouldn't have been there, I wouldn't have had this whole complication of, you know, doing this doing that and right and wrong. I was not born nothing. But hamdulillah. Allah created us and we thank Allah subhanaw taala that he gave us like Alhamdulillah
Alhamdulillah give us a man Alhamdulillah Allah gave us is the habit to stay on demand. And that's right in the middle of this world, which is so full of temptations, or full of all kinds of forces of evil pulling from every side. Unless granted, it still enables us to keep our board afloat on those waves, where we can sink and have sunk. huge, massive vessels. This little paper boat floats on that on those on those waves, doesn't sink, and we can handle a lot because of you, Louisiana in Missoula, Montana.
Because there's no one else who forgives sins except to Yarra so please forgive me. I have come to accept this from me. This is not worthy of you. I'm ashamed even to bring it before you. But I have brought what I have. What else can I bring? What else can I bring? This beautiful lashes I sent it I think on the reminder or something. Whereas when we read the the person is asking, he says What is the secret between you and a lot? Is that keep a secret between you and what is the secret?
And then the seek by secret they mean some deed or some good deed, like the scale the story of the three who got trapped in the cave.
Some good deals by which we can invoke a loss manager.
So as I said, What is my secret?
Secret to the lies only since
he's only since there is no good deed?
So my secret is the sandwich you covered.
Think about that, why is there a secret?
Because you cover it.
Yeah, my sin, my secret is my sin.
And that sin is a secret because you cover it
the secret between you and me is your mercy.
without a reason,
you know what I am, I will always
every time I think about this, I, I can't understand this.
Everyone in this world has a reason to do something, including the symbols of greatest selflessness.
You know, mothers,
then the mother is crying to the child, there is still a reason
because that child is the mother has expectations on this child, that this child is you know, somebody who will will grow up into a very good human being, and this will be this will reflect well on me and I know my parenting, this child will make dua for me when I die this ad removed off for me that their their actions will be subtle Giardia for me and so on and so forth. Even though they're not, we're not looking at these as some, you know, selfish, kind of
selfishness or selfish kind of desire. But I'm saying that there is some there's some expectation there is some reason why somebody one person does go to somebody else.
But Allah subhanho
wa Taala Ronnie,
the creator of everything.
free from everything.
The owner of everything, of all kinds of wealth
needs nothing for anybody.
Why does he need to do anything for us?
Why does Allah subhanaw taala need to do anything for us at all?
He does it because
he doesn't because either.
So when you stand in Salah, think about this.
I am yours. II
think about this. So even MLS is talking about his liberal is allowed to say that this is my job.
And when I go before him, I hope he will forgive my colleagues.
Robin has alumna Susana aquilano tarhana
Mayra bestow Hochman which is religious knowledge and right judgment
and in the case of Emery ceramics profited on me and join me with righteous and grant me an honorable mention in later generations and make me one of the inheritors of generative fitness.
we talk about name and fame
you want to talk everyone wants to become Latina
name and fancy all the time capsule does that one.
Tell me We are in a few days in another window by the end of this week this Friday or Saturday depending on which country you are in. We are going to be celebrating inshallah.
Allah says remembrance of Allah salaam, salaam and by inference of hydrolase Allah
how many years today
since that incident happened
if I take the Mesopotamians as a marker in history, we are talking about 4000 plus years
years later, you have people remembering somebody.
What more can you ask?
for 1000 years later, you have people naming their children, Ibrahim, and it's my anhydrous.
and the reason for this
witch king of witch dynasty was the primary
witch Queen of which palace was
which son of witch King was this binary.
We take the name with honor. We consider it an honor on ourselves, to name our children and to name ourselves after these people because they were obedient.
Because they were the people. They were the people who obeyed Allah, they were the people who Allah Subhana Allah.
And that is why we love them. And that is why we
named name ourselves after them.
And we remember them.
And their actions was such that Allah subhanaw taala made them into acts of worship.
This is the
story of Abraham Allison.
less violent than even when Islam said he's talking about the Day of Judgment,
the day wherein neither wealth nor sons will away
except Him who brings to his Rob Calvin, Sallim, Ala Moana de la, Calvin Salim,
my brothers, sisters, and myself a new
it is this, which is the struggle, it is this, which is the
purpose for which I'm not sure how data centers to come to him with a heart, which is pure.
You know, I gave this example before. And sometimes I hesitate to give the same example, again, and again, trying to keep it interesting for you. But some examples are,
they fit very nicely, so.
And that was the example of borrowing somebody's car.
The reason I give that example is because it's very easy to relate to that, because we live in this world where we
this is instance of boring, somebody whose car is nothing new, it is something which is normal, we have done it before and probably will do it again.
The point is that if you borrow somebody else's property, and this is a beautiful piece of machinery that you borrowed, when you are using it, if you are a good decent human being, if you are a responsible person, if you are a person who is worthy of respect, then it is expected from you that you will treat this thing which you have borrowed with the utmost care, that you will treat this thing with actually far more care than you would have treated something that you own yourself.
So it's something that you own yourself, maybe you could have been careless, I'm not saying you should be, one must treat everything, all possessions, one must treat them with respect, and one must look after them.
Really, if you want to enjoy something, you have to take care of it. But especially the thing that you are using does not belong to you, then you will be extra careful. And if you are not extra careful, then this reflects directly on your character. People will say what kind of a person are you? And how will you have been raised wrong? Your parents didn't teach you any manners. What kind of behavior is just that you take somebody else's thing and you trash it, you take somebody else, what doesn't belong to you, you take it and you misuse it. And here we are talking about I am talking to myself, we are talking about yourself, that this body of ours doesn't belong to us the
heart of ours doesn't belong to us, our soul and spirit doesn't belong to us. This whole life which Allah gave us does not belong to us. All the possessions in this life all the authority in this life
does not belong to us. Our health doesn't belong to us our well doesn't belong to us. It all belongs to Allah Subhana Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala in his infinite mercy and grace, gave it to us without even being asked. We didn't ask for it. Did you ask for for the help
Have you do ask Allah, Allah give me this. We didn't ask. Despite that Allah, Allah gave us all of these. And all we need to do is to enjoy them. And I didn't give us this for us to to punish us or he didn't give us this and say don't use it. No. Please use it. What Allah has given us, use it, enjoy it, but do it responsibly what is the definition of responsibility? Do it the way Allah subhanaw taala ordered you do?
Whatever is in your control, treat it the way a lot told you to treat.
What Allah subhanaw taala permitted you to use use what he permitted what he told you not to use, don't use.
This is the meaning of responsibility. What is it?
And that's all we need to do. Now what if we do that then inshallah we are homing clear.
illa murottal, monitor Mohammed, Ali, this is what it is, you come to Allah subhanho wa Taala with a heart which is pure, what is the purity of the heart, the purity of the heart is at the heart must be pure from all forms of schilke the first part of the purity of the heart is that this heart must be your from all forms of Shall we do not join anybody in part, as a partner with us
in anything that honestly I know that is that in anything that is the purview of Allah Subhana Allah, what does that mean everything.
So in worship, I do not join anyone with ALLAH subhanaw taala I worship only and only Allah Subhana
when I asked for help, I do not join anybody with Allah. I asked him only from him, even where I am legitimately permitted to use means for example, my health if I get sick,
who do I ask?
for the Cure from?
Allah or the doctor Allah, but do I go to the doctor? Yes.
Is the ship No, why? Because the doctor and medicines and medical
technology all of these are means
these are the these are the Zarya
the means by which
Allah subhanho wa Taala cures people.
And these are not a these are not exclusive means it doesn't mean that Allah cures people only through these means no.
Allah Subhana Allah cures people, some people through these means
other people Allah subhanaw taala you're through some other means. And finally Allah subhanaw taala cure some people without any thing that we can see and identify and call means.
What is the meaning of dwad was telling me
that my shift was you have fit in a piece of grass God booty
in some plant
and he's talking about basically means medicine is talking about you know, any medicine, you know,
homeopathic medicine, or any medicine and so on, which is
the the take the extracts from different plants and so on and so forth, but applies to any kind of medicine. He said you have faith in that you've got faith in this tablet. But you don't have faith in the one who is
enabling that tablet to work.
So if somebody says I am making dua to Allah subhanaw taala to cure me we don't have a robot you know what about what what are you eating? Now? Please understand this is no need to act on fools. Tie the gavel No, no problem with that.
By all means, try the camera So to do that, he said tie the camera and have faith in our last monitor. But he did not say that unless you tie the camel Allah cannot save the camel. Allah cannot keep that camel safe.
So what is the see this is the beauty of the hate or hate is to recognize the truth door
to recognize where
the action originates, to recognize the prime mover.
Again, my chef mela fear is hard with no and forgive me since
he used to say that, you know people in India, take little children and so on and so forth. We have a naturally destructive mentality, you know for us.
So, kids is a dog sleeping
Kids going by they will take us stone and throw it at the door so it's to say that if you throw a stone at a dog Have you seen a dog which will bite the stone
the stone hit the dog
the dog has hit here on its on its shoulder
with the by the store Have you ever seen a dog with bike system? He said What does the dog do the dog comes for you.
He said even the dog knows at the stone can do nothing.
Even the dog knows that there is something we understand.
And we as human beings, we worship stones.
And that is does not he's not talking about worshiping stone it is a stone meaning we have our aspirations we have our hope stuck in the equivalent of stones
which is whatever other than Allah whatever we consider to be beneficial or harmful
so he he made the I said Yala
you know I've got a lot of pain in my stomach and
so muscle is alive a pain in my stomach please God.
So Allah de he told him about a tree he said go take the leaves of that tree and you know, boil them make a tea with it and bring that and just talk as we go. So masala is rangos and he
was the takes the leave of the tree boys.
And he drinks that and his target, he's got salmonella, very good. Then some time passes.
And then Sam gets a stomachache again.
Some was so good, I know the cure. So he goes to the tree takes the leaves. He
he buys them and he drinks them.
She drinks it and nothing happens.
So now Mozart Islam is very worried because he had this dog kick and he the last previous time he asked Allah Allah told him about his tree made the tea dragon is fine.
This time now he is doing the same thing. The same tree and the same remedy.
So massage ceramics. This is another one was swallowing we come to the story as well as
he says Yala I had a stomachache I lost a virus our cake I asked you you told me about history I you know made the tea and I drank it and my stomach ache went away but this time I was stomach ache. I went to the same tree I got the same leaves I did the same thing. Nothing's happening.
Alex Rodriguez Moosa shot the tree
says not the D.
Who asked me for the Cure
we just went to the tree
there's no cure in the tree.
There's no cure to the tree.
The tree will cure when I tell you to cure the leaves will have power.
When I tell them to
like your gums for less
than why all these doctors and why all these medicines and why all of this. Allah says this is because to keep you happy.
Because you really will always want to do it.
Now again, please understand this. I'm not trying to run down you know doctors and medical science and isn't that I'm just linking the two is linking the two.
I'm saying do that. The beautiful chandelier in your in your
in your house.
Right. crystal glass, all the bulbs aerators and so forth.
I'm not denying this chandelier. I'm saying that what makes that chandelier shine. What makes that chandelier actually emanate light and illuminate your whole house
is not contained in the chandelier. It comes from somewhere else. And that is electricity.
Take away the electricity. one tiny little wire.
One time you stepped away,
you still have the glass, you still have the crystal and you have darkness,
all the glass and all that crystal and all those bulbs cannot take away that darkness the doctors is taken over by what by what comes into it.
This is the connection with Allah subhanaw taala
stem that one wire several that one connection everything remains the same
the fate of somebody the shape and and you know face and everything else of somebody who has the man and who doesn't have you know difference.
But inside there is only darkness is no light, no elimination.
May Allah grant us this understanding. This is what we learn from the life of Rahim. Alayhi Salam is what we learn from a life of all of the imbalances.
But since we are talking here about life environments, just look at that. This is what we learned from the life over Emily salam to focus our attention on the essential
on the reality on the hammock, on the rule on the spirit, the actual essence of all
of everything, which is the photo of
Allah is the one who's putting these things was created these things. Look at the creation of Allah subhanaw taala I'm forever fascinated by the creation of
the glory and majesty of
the beauty of it.
What does Allah do? How does he do it? He puts the food of something which is flying in the air. He puts it in the ocean
shown this to me many times and thanks now to YouTube you can go and look it up anytime. see an osprey hunting see an osprey catching fish
here this Eagle up in the air
very happened yeah, tiny little thing on top. But Allah has given it eyesight where it can spot a fish, which is swimming underwater. So here is the fish which is doing underwater the eagle looking at it, you know, I know because thanks to the refraction of light, we have something called parallax error
which means in simple terms that if you are looking at something which is underwater, which means that you are looking through the water
light refracts, so
that thing that fish that you are looking at is not actually at the place you are looking where you see it, it's away from there. So I'm seeing the fish but the fish is actually here is because of the reflection refraction of light I am seeing it when I'm seeing it. Same thing applies to the Osprey. So here is this bird which is up in the air, it's seeing the fish from that distance
the fish is not where the bird is actually seeing it. But when that bird dies for that fish, that bird catches that fish underwater, because it is compensating for parallax error when it is diving into the water to catch that fish.
What is it
what is this?
similarly Allah subhanaw taala made fish like this
spit out water
at insects and so on and so forth, which are sitting on you know, like, like the leaves of this trip was up to the insect insect here. The fish will spit water up here and insect drops into the water and the fish eats it. And the fish is doing that from under the water.
The same same issue of parallax.
Sisters, look at the heroes of Marvel and occasionally recognize your ability
to slide his legs and his little Spanner rehab. Let's love it and live it by enjoying the glory and magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala by praising him and glorifying him and asking him to accept us into His mercy ask Allah subhanaw taala
Please with you, never to displease. ask Allah to show you his sign in his creation. Ask a little fiddly arts with his all and majesty and grace and His note was Allah la ville Karim Allah Allah He was amishman erotica hora
