smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala sherfield MBA will mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira from Nevada. My dear brothers and sisters we are

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

in our lesson on the lives of the Amir Lima Salam and we're looking at the beautiful life of Ibrahim

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

alayhi salam, one of the greatest of the messengers and prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the ancestor of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:00:38--> 00:00:52

we looked at last in the last lesson we looked at that beautiful Ayat of Surah Baqarah. Wherever Iman is Allah, Allah asked Allah subhanaw taala to show how he gives lies, live to the dead.

00:00:54--> 00:00:55

Where he said

00:00:58--> 00:01:01

he Maura be areni khiva to heal Mota.

00:01:03--> 00:01:06

He said oh by Rob, show me how you give life to the dead.

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

We move on from from their

00:01:12--> 00:01:16

primary ceram then left Huron, and this is where

00:01:19--> 00:01:46

he was giving the power to those people who were worshipers of the sun and the moon and celestial bodies. And at the end of that set of ayah is the ayah which we reside in for inshallah, before we begin Salah, and also in Salah after we after the military MA in Nevada gelila de patata Salatu Salam hanifa Nova and Amina machine. So you were Emily, Sarah,

00:01:50--> 00:02:04

give them down and short them and told them that we do not worship anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala that only and only Allah subhanaw taala is worthy of worship.

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

Then we

00:02:09--> 00:02:10

come to

00:02:11--> 00:02:16

the next part of the journey. smartlife Emily Salah was a traveler,

00:02:17--> 00:02:50

his whole life is of travel of one place to another, and such as aimless travel, his travel is based on established for the purpose of Dawa and wherever he goes wherever he Sam leaves his mark, he gives down to the people, he invites them towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. He introduces them to Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the work of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala raised him and raised his Rajat

00:02:52--> 00:02:58

from heroin, he went to Egypt. Now in Egypt, the king, the pharaoh there,

00:03:00--> 00:03:02

somebody told him that there is a man

00:03:03--> 00:03:13

traveling and with the man is an extremely beautiful woman. And that woman was the wife of grammar is Salam sobre la sala.

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

So

00:03:16--> 00:03:29

the king ordered for sarara salam to be brought to him. This was the ways of the jabiru in the ways of the

00:03:30--> 00:03:32

oppressors of the world. And to this day.

00:03:34--> 00:03:37

This remains exploitation of women.

00:03:38--> 00:03:44

trafficking in women, we have officially abolished slavery.

00:03:46--> 00:03:49

You know, in the 18th century, so

00:03:55--> 00:03:56

would you is almost

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

300 years ago or 400 years ago, we abolished slavery.

00:04:03--> 00:04:13

But slavery still continues, unabated, in the form of human trafficking, the kidnapping off

00:04:14--> 00:04:22

the majority of that is women, of course, kidnapping of women and of course, children. And then they are, they are compelled and they are

00:04:24--> 00:04:47

forced into prostitution into begging into all kinds of things well protect us. Human beings are the only species who do this who enslave their own kind, and who compel them to do the most degraded things. And there are people who make money out of that and how this is the the evil of making money at any costs.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

Islam does not permit that this is the difference between Islam and everything else, which is that in many cases, people are people go on to war.

00:05:00--> 00:05:28

One or the other. So you either look at the reason why you make money, which is the end result of that money. And you see, people say, Well, this should be good. As long as that is good, how you make the money? Well, you know, we are going to go easy on that. So it's okay doesn't matter how you make the money As long as the end result is good. Meaning that even if the Robin Hood kind of mentality where I'm stealing from,

00:05:30--> 00:06:00

from one person, in order to get charity to another person, on the other hand, people might say, Well, you know what, it doesn't matter. The the means has to be good goal, whatever it might be means as Islam says, No, both are important. The goal is important. And the means are also important. You can't steal, to give charity, you must give charity that's very important. But what is given in charity must be a law. That is what Allah subhanaw taala does not accept charity, from Haram in

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

which based on

00:06:03--> 00:06:44

if your business is based or your income is based on something which Islam is prohibited. The most common of that is of course, interest based banking or you know, lending and so on and so forth based on interest, boring and bizarre interest. But of course, can be any any anything else. You're the manufacturer of and sale of alcohol, manufacture and sale of, or sale of, you know cigarettes and pornographic magazines and pornography, these the sale of tobacco and tobacco products, manufacturing, tobacco products, the manufacturing, and sale of all kinds of drugs, and so on and so forth. And of course, things like human trafficking, prostitution, one hopes that Muslims are not

00:06:44--> 00:06:46

engaged in that. But one hopes that with

00:06:48--> 00:07:18

without much conviction, because one of the biggest sinks of this one of the biggest consumer bases of this is in the wealthy Muslim countries and with wealthy Muslims and Allah May Allah protect us from ourselves how, how incredibly evil is that? That as a Muslim, that you are a consumer of the product of human trafficking the product of slavery in Allahu Allah Raja

00:07:20--> 00:07:38

so while I think in Jana mala mix probably has made a special place for people like this, who indulge in human trafficking, and who indulge in the consumption of the process of human trafficking, meaning people who go to prostitutes, people who pay prostitutes, people who support prostitution.

00:07:42--> 00:07:45

Absolutely, incredibly horrible. And I think this is something that we should

00:07:47--> 00:07:59

strongly and vocally condemn. Because this is what Islam taught us. He said that if you see something wrong, then stop it with your hand. And if you are, if you don't have the strength for that, then speak out against it.

00:08:00--> 00:08:23

And he said, if you don't have the string for that, then hate it in your heart. That means you don't consume it yourself. You don't participate in yourself. You don't say I'm hating it in my heart. But in my shop, I'm selling alcohol, and I'm selling tobacco, and I'm selling pornographic magazines, and I'm selling all of this stuff, but I hate it. If you hate if you hate it, how do you do that? Right, the whole point of saying I hate it means that I will not touch it.

00:08:24--> 00:09:05

I may not be able to stop it, but certainly you can't do it in my house, you will not do it in my shop, I will not be part I will not be a party to that in any way. And this last part, which is hating and staying away, he said this is a sign of the weakness of your man because if you had him on not only would you hate it and stay away, but you would also try to stop it to the best of your ability in every way that you can which is with your tongue by speaking out against it. And by acting against so I remind myself when you let us stop trying to fool Allah subhanaw taala See what I mean is that, um, of course was not was one of those who did this to a level of excellence. So in

00:09:05--> 00:09:08

Egypt, because the king was wild like that.

00:09:09--> 00:09:19

He ordered for Sarah, to reveal on how to be Sara Lee Salaam to be brought. So the when they came for

00:09:20--> 00:09:49

Sara Lee, salaam, they asked you very well and Solomon said Who is this lady? And she said, um, she said she's my sister. Now the reason he said she's my sister was first of all, she was a system in Islam. So it was not a lie, as in you know, a blatant lie. But the reason he said that was because if they if he had not said that, then they would have killed him. Because if he said this is my wife, then they would have killed him. And they would have taken her anyway. So he said she's my sister. So they took

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

and when they brought her to the king, when the king reached out to touch her, she made dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and they

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

King, the author that handles our King became paralyzed. So he couldn't move.

00:10:06--> 00:10:34

He got terribly frightened. Imagine this happening to him, he got terribly frightened. And he asked her to, you know, to make dua or to relieve him from this. So she asked her to relieve him, he became Okay. And then he again tried to touch her. So she again met again he got paralyzed. This happened three times. And after the third time, he got so frightened that he told his people he said, You have brought this is not a human being. Do you have

00:10:36--> 00:10:55

you had brought me a gin or something like this? This is not a human being, this is what's happening. So immediately, he released her and to sort of pacify her. He also gave her as a gift he gave her a slave girl. And this slave girl was hajer alayhis salaam. So when

00:10:56--> 00:11:04

she now returned, with this label as a gift, and Sara Lee Salaam, didn't have any children.

00:11:05--> 00:11:26

So she gave this label who she had a Salah. She gave Hydra salam to Ibrahim Elisa as his wife, so he freed her obviously, if she might, if he marries her, she gets freed anyway, so he freed her. And from him he had his vital Islam. Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:27--> 00:11:30

gave him a salami. He didn't have any children

00:11:31--> 00:12:06

until the age of 80, at that time at the about at the time said that at the age of 80. He rightfully said, I'm circumcised himself and circumcision, which is a Sunnah of the MBR. A Musab This is something that is common to us and to the Jews. We are circumcised at birth or at any time but we are circumcised. This is from the Sunnah of the mBiA. Mashallah. So it Brahma Salaam, circumcised himself at the age of 80. And then Allah subhanaw taala gave him

00:12:07--> 00:12:26

his vital his Allah, Allah, Allah gave him Bashara of Allah mana Halim, which is vitally Salam and gulaman. Aleem who is is happily Salam. So he is finally Salam was born first to higher alayhi salam. And then later on, we know the story of the

00:12:27--> 00:12:42

three angels. We'll come to that. Yeah, who came and who gave him the Bashara of a second son, who was his Hockley, Salah, and the second son he got from Sara Lee Salaam, who was until then she was

00:12:43--> 00:12:51

to didn't have any children. So she was considered to be perhaps barren, but obviously she wasn't in the commentary

00:12:52--> 00:12:53

in fertile body.

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

The commentary on

00:13:02--> 00:13:07

Bakara by commentary on on say Bukhari

00:13:08--> 00:13:11

by Imam even Alhaji Alice Kalani,

00:13:12--> 00:13:30

he said that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam took hajer alayhis salam and you smile, Elisa Lam, to Naka from Palestine, and left them in the middle of the desert, meaning in Makkah with a sack of debts and one off

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

water. Now,

00:13:34--> 00:13:51

this is a beautiful story of this complete obedience, this complete sense of and commitment to obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam had made

00:13:53--> 00:13:59

there was nothing that he Reimer is Salam did not do if Allah ordered him to do it.

00:14:00--> 00:14:39

And Allah Himself is the best witness in favor of Iran. Melissa I mentioned with Karla hora boo Aslam Allah Islam told me when Islam said to him submit he said I have submitted now in this story Rasulullah Salim said that Sara Lee Sam, you know people are people human beings are human beings, no matter how pious and holy and so on you might be, you are still a human, you still have some weaknesses some failings We ask Allah to forgive us. And as far as our setup asahina concern the MBR concerned the

00:14:40--> 00:14:54

Sahaba concern and so on we when we talk about something which they have done, which might seem to be or which is a mistake, or we talk about some weakness

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

that they may have, have displayed in their lives. Please understand that it is by

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

of the other of learning that we do not criticize them.

00:15:06--> 00:15:16

For example, you say jacoba salam, the father of Yusuf Ali Salaam, and his treatment of use of nbme. And the other

00:15:18--> 00:15:39

sons, there was obviously a difference in the way he treated them, which is why the other sons turn against these two sons. Now, you might talk about that you might show that as an example, in terms of importance of treating everyone equally, in parenting and so on. But at no point in time, are you criticizing Jacobo a salami?

00:15:41--> 00:16:18

Whatever he did, Allah is the one to forgive. It is not our job to sit in judgment on the MBL a Muslim so so also with regard to bribery, sir, I'm sorry, Solomon Swanson. So dubuisson told us there sobre la Salam became jealous of her journey, Sam. And to avoid this conflict, Ibrahim alayhis salam took Sara Lee Salam. And obviously when we saying all this, please remember the whatever restaurant did not do this just just like that. Right? He didn't take his wife and child and dump them in the desert, to get rid of them or to kill them for that he didn't have to travel from Palestine all the way to Makai could have done it outside his house, he could have done it, you

00:16:18--> 00:16:58

could have gone 10 miles and dumped them somewhere or you could have just told her go away. Right? He could have divorced her and and given her away to somebody and say, Well, you know, marry this woman and take care of me. There are there are there are a million options that he could have done if he was only worried or afraid about the jealousy of his wife Sara, against his wife harder. And if he just wanted to get rid of her generally Sarah and her son, he could have done that. But first of all, it makes zero sense. Because this son is a son he got after eight after eight years, when he was eight years old or more, after a lot knows how many decades of making dua to Allah subhanaw

00:16:58--> 00:17:34

taala. So why would you want to get rid of them anyway, that's the first thing. Secondly, we're looking at somebody of the stature of Ibrahim Ali Sarah, he's not bothered about some jealousy between co wives. Okay, so they are jealous. So what you end up with Shannon up in a different house, no matter what he does have take her all the way to Macau, when he is doing something when the NaVi does something, the NaVi is doing something because of a ye from Allah subhanaw taala because of the instruction of Allah subhanaw taala so let us understand that because I've been hearing of late people making these completely ridiculous statements about the mBiA mussalam

00:17:35--> 00:18:03

specific also to this incident with regard to a primary Salah they should, they should fear Allah subhanaw taala and they should fear the anger of Allah subhanaw taala is fundamental to the deen there is no learning without other there is no learning until you submit yourself until you you know you you use you become submissive in the face of the column of Allah subhanaw taala. So he said that

00:18:05--> 00:18:52

Sara Lee Salam was jellison subramani salam, this is the order of Allah subhanaw taala he took his wife hotjar and he took his newborn son is Israel. And he traveled with them. And he left them in the valley of Mk. Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed this, so he left them there. And then he left a bag of dates. And he left a water skin with them. And he turned around, and he started walking back. Now obviously in that situation, what would his wife do? She followed him until he came to this place called cada which is which is where the valley, you know, opens and he's now he's on the main

00:18:53--> 00:19:05

road going north. And she asked him to whom are you leaving as you're leaving here and going away? So who is going to look after us? To whom are you leaving us? And wherever is what I'm pointing to the heavens, he says to online.

00:19:07--> 00:19:14

So has really said I'm looking down this lady's taqwa and look at her own tawakkol and look at her own strength.

00:19:15--> 00:19:24

She said then go. He said go Allah will not allow us to perish. She said did you or Rob asked you to do this and he nodded his head. He said then go

00:19:25--> 00:19:26

and go.

00:19:27--> 00:19:39

I imagine this is the the hadith of Allah, know how Allah subhanaw taala strengthens the heart. Now having done that, you would have a Salam now is not visible to them.

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

He's gone over the lip of the valley.

00:19:42--> 00:19:46

She comes back to her son, a newborn baby, they're

00:19:47--> 00:19:50

on the ground, and then she

00:19:51--> 00:20:00

she doesn't just sit there. Having said Allah have talker and Allah that Allah will not allow us to perish. She didn't just sit there and wait for

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

seems to happen. She also exercised effort. Now this is a question that a lot of people ask they say, Well, you know, if I have taco, Then am I permitted to use means if I have tawakkol? And why

00:20:13--> 00:20:55

am I permitted to use whatever tools or resources that Allah has given me? Should I do that? If I have taco for example, and if I'm if I'm sick, Then should I go to the hospital? Should I go to the doctor should I take medicines? Or should I simply say, I have to work on Allah. So I make dua, and I sit and hoping that Allah will cure me. Now having said this, please understand, if somebody is doing that. If somebody says, I will not go to the hospital, I will not consult a doctor. I have to work on Allah. I am making dua, dua is my medicine. Allah is my doctor and inshallah, if Allah will, Allah will cure me. Believe me, that person what is doing is not Haram. It is not Haram. It is

00:20:55--> 00:21:21

something that if he's doing he's responsible for it and insha Allah if Allah wants Allah can call him because at the end of the day, the cure is for Allah only. So I'm not saying this is our I'm just saying that however, Allah subhanaw taala also gave you the means to us, that does not mean the means is the cure the means is the is given to you by loss. So therefore use the means, like the other day I mentioned to you in another

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

in another lecture

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

musala ceram had a headache.

00:21:29--> 00:21:47

So he asked Allah swatara cure my headache now Allah subhanaw taala GERD is Eric but Allah told him go to that particular tree, take the leaves, boil them make a tea and drink it and your headache will be cured. Now why is Allah subhanaw taala pointing into two means because I like endure in the end.

00:21:49--> 00:22:30

The Cure comes from Allah anyway. But Allah subhanaw taala is showing us what to do so he told him here are the means. Now masala Salam goes that he takes this leaves he boils it and so on makes it he drinks it, he said is gone. Now after some time Musa ROM got the headache again. So Sally Sally said well you know i know the cure. So he goes to the tree. He takes the leaves boil them, makes a tea drinks it nothing happens nothing happens headache gets worse. Now Musa masala I have a headache. And now I did the last time I had a headache you told me go to the tree make the tea I did that. This time I did it is not working my headache is worse. Allah says Musa the cure is not in the

00:22:30--> 00:22:40

leaves the cure is in the is in the eyes and the cure. Last time you made to me and I told you go to the list. This time you went to the list yourself without making.

00:22:42--> 00:23:23

So make dua so this there are lessons in both part of the story. We're not saying Musab did anything wrong. No, Allah is teaching us lessons to both parts of the story here is one part which is adopt the means which have been given to you. There's nothing wrong in that by all means do that. The second part of the story is don't rely on the means rely on Allah. adopt the means. Don't go without the means adopt the means. But make dua and know that the cure comes from Allah subhanaw taala. The means why using the means because Allah told me to use the means because Allah gave me this resource. So Allah gave me the rock leg at the hospital, Allah gave me the medicine. So if I use it,

00:23:23--> 00:24:01

then I am doing it in keeping with and in obedience to the order of Allah. But I know the cure is not in the hand of the doctor, it is not in the hospital, it is not in the medicine, cure is from Allah. So I use the means and then I stand before Allah and I say well, please help me. Another beautiful example of this is in the life of Rasulullah, Salah Salem, the Battle of burger, he had the means whatever he had, whether it was more whether it was less, he used the means. He did not reject the means. He used the means and then he stood in the eye and he said Oh Allah if these people perish and and say oh, I have the means I take care of myself. No. He said, Oh Allah. If

00:24:01--> 00:24:15

these people perish, there will be no one to help. No one to worship you. You promised me Please give me your head he's making in the Battle of honan. When the Sahaba did not do that, when they relied on their means alone.

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

Allah subhanaw taala we will die off Surah Surah Tauba. When he explained to us Allah said you had relied on your means. We have got 10,000 troops, we are fully armed. We can fight Allah subhanaw taala converted that into a

00:24:35--> 00:24:37

defeat into an absolute route.

00:24:39--> 00:24:46

They were running for their lives. until Allah subhanho wa Taala brought down his help and that happened because of the affirmations.

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

And even when he made the draw, he said call the answer is a total of the live episode of Ilana which are called the answer. He could have just made. No. Again means but use them is once the answer.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

Caymanians Okay, fine, we're good to go no

00:25:03--> 00:25:25

ganzar surrounded him. But he made Allah Subhana Allah then Allah subhanaw taala sent his Malaika and Allah turn the tails of turn turn the tail of battle. And this the Sahaba the Muslims in that battle of one God, the largest amount of booty that they had ever got from anywhere before that.

00:25:27--> 00:25:34

So we were heavily set up Sahaba So, Hazara Lazar, now, she is using me what's the mean? She has her own self.

00:25:36--> 00:25:41

She had nothing else. Her own self, her own energy, her own effort. So what does she do? She claims.

00:25:42--> 00:26:03

she climbs the hill of Sabah. She looks around, nothing to see nobody there. No resource, she comes down. She takes baby. Then she goes tomorrow, which is a distance away. And then she crime climbs that hill, and she's looking around, she sees nothing. She comes down from there. And then obviously I'm sure she must have were anxious about the baby. So in that valley, she runs.

00:26:05--> 00:26:11

Then she stops to look at look at look at the child babies, okay? she climbs Safar again.

00:26:14--> 00:26:19

And she doesn't how how long does she do it? She does it until the help of Allah comes.

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

She doesn't stop. She doesn't say You know what? I just went there. 10 minutes or what's going to change? Right? So what's the point? Again? No.

00:26:28--> 00:26:32

121212 again and again and again.

00:26:34--> 00:26:35

She did that.

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

And my brothers and sisters, remember.

00:26:41--> 00:27:22

Allah subhanho data, liked what she did so much. That Allah subhanaw taala made that into one of the monastic one of the Arcana of Hajj. Say, is a part of our Ramadan, it's a part of our Hodge. Allah made the action that has already Salam took because she needed to take she took the action because she was she did that because she needed to take it. She did that because she was concerned about it. Allah made that into an act of a bother for which Allah gives you

00:27:24--> 00:27:30

and Allah like that action so much that even that running in the valley is a part of the room.

00:27:32--> 00:27:33

We run in that valley.

00:27:34--> 00:27:38

There's no value there but we still run in that space that between the two green lights.

00:27:39--> 00:27:52

She ran because she was concerned about her child we are no child to look after we are still running. Allah light that action so much that Allah subhanaw taala immortalized the action of that one woman

00:27:54--> 00:27:55

she was not an abuser.

00:27:57--> 00:27:58

She was the mother of ambia

00:28:01--> 00:28:02

she was the wife of Hollywood la

00:28:03--> 00:28:04

Ibrahim La Silla.

00:28:06--> 00:28:14

I love that action so much that Allah subhanho wa Taala made his own nabee seydel mousseline emammal ambia

00:28:15--> 00:28:23

mohammadu Rasulullah is Allah Allah, Allah? Allah made his own let me do that action. Rasul Allah Brian in that place, a

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

reward of torker Allah

00:28:31--> 00:28:40

so she ran up and down up and Annapurna and she ran seven timer How do you know sir because it was seven because then Allah subhanaw taala sent gibril Islam

00:28:41--> 00:28:43

and given his Salam dug,

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

the well of

00:28:46--> 00:28:47

Zamzam.

00:28:50--> 00:28:53

And water started coming out. Imagine barren desert.

00:28:54--> 00:28:59

There's not a drop of water anywhere. It's not a blade of grass Anyway, there's no tree, nothing.

00:29:00--> 00:29:05

And out of that, just where the little baby is lying,

00:29:06--> 00:29:08

Jerusalem dug out

00:29:09--> 00:29:10

and water started coming on.

00:29:11--> 00:29:24

And water started flowing and then the humanity of hydrolase salaam, imagine what's the first thing you will do in that place? Place of tremendous Water, water insecurity, water scarcity.

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

The water is coming out it's flowing.

00:29:29--> 00:29:45

She doesn't want to lose the water. What does she do? She builds a wall around zum zum zum zum stops up, puts a wall around it and that's how it's called develops. Masuda said that may Allah bless our mother. If she had not put the wall it would have been a river.

00:29:47--> 00:29:49

It would have been a river.

00:29:52--> 00:29:54

My brothers sisters, think about that.

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

Think about this.

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

This is the primary

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Salomon his wife, Elisa.

00:30:04--> 00:30:05

And then

00:30:06--> 00:30:10

last round data, here's his water now, Allah subhanaw taala sent birds.

00:30:13--> 00:30:15

So the birds come to drink water the birds of the sky.

00:30:17--> 00:30:21

And Allah subhanaw taala sends a whole tribe of people

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

called your home from Yemen.

00:30:26--> 00:30:31

The Durand come there. And what do they see? They see water, they see fresh water.

00:30:32--> 00:30:34

The biggest treasure

00:30:36--> 00:30:43

for desert travelers, there's nothing I'm interested in the goldmine would not make them happier than to see a well of fresh, sweet water.

00:30:47--> 00:30:50

And what do they see? They see this lone woman,

00:30:51--> 00:30:53

one single woman with a little baby.

00:30:55--> 00:30:56

What do they do?

00:30:57--> 00:31:00

They do something which is so mind boggling.

00:31:01--> 00:31:15

Which is so unprecedented, which is so unimaginable that I can only say that this is the sign of the greatest of all us rather, this is a sign of the acceptance of the law of Ibrahim Ali Salman will come to the door.

00:31:16--> 00:31:18

Maybe in the next maybe in the next class.

00:31:20--> 00:31:24

I don't want to hurry through this is one of the most beautiful stories of the Quran.

00:31:27--> 00:31:30

What do they do? They ask permission

00:31:33--> 00:31:37

of hydrolase salam to settle in that valley.

00:31:38--> 00:31:39

They asked her permission.

00:31:42--> 00:31:43

Who was the

00:31:45--> 00:31:46

was the

00:31:49--> 00:31:51

man imagine here's this type.

00:31:52--> 00:32:01

What is the meaning of tribe? And what is the meaning of our traveling? Hi, we're coming from some land. It means the tribe means that this caravan

00:32:02--> 00:32:17

has chieftains in it. It has warriors in it. It has their women and children. It has all the things they need for live their tents and their cattle and their sheep and their camels and their horses, donkeys.

00:32:18--> 00:32:19

They have all of that.

00:32:21--> 00:32:30

All resources you can imagine with a whole tribe is migrating, so they bought everything. But they are led by powerful warriors left by big chieftains

00:32:31--> 00:32:37

in the normal course of things. What would have happened to a single woman standing there?

00:32:39--> 00:32:45

At best one of them if she was good looking, one of them would have taken him taken her for his wife.

00:32:47--> 00:32:53

That's it. The chief or somebody would have claimed her as a wife. And that's the end of the story.

00:32:55--> 00:32:57

What's good scenario, they would have killed.

00:32:59--> 00:33:00

You're looking at the seventh century.

00:33:02--> 00:33:15

This will happen even today. You don't have to go all the way back to the seventh century. What happens to lone women? What happens to single lone women in a wilderness who are confronted by

00:33:16--> 00:33:20

armed powerful men Illa Mashallah.

00:33:21--> 00:33:27

Nothing has changed. Believe me, human beings are as barbaric as they always were. May Allah save us from ourselves?

00:33:28--> 00:33:34

But Allah put in their hearts. So what do they do? They asked her permission. Do we have your permission to settle here?

00:33:35--> 00:33:37

What does she want? She needs them.

00:33:39--> 00:33:52

She's alone. She got nobody. So she needs somebody there. But she's the wife. She doesn't want to marry anyone. She wants to be there and she wants to she needs resources.

00:33:54--> 00:34:00

So she says to them, yes. I give you permission to settle here. But the water belongs to me.

00:34:03--> 00:34:04

To me and my son.

00:34:05--> 00:34:21

So you will not have any right to the water. Meaning you can use the water obviously if he says you cannot as the water then they have no reason to settle there. He said you can use the water but ownership is ours. So if you are using the water, remember you're using it because we have permitted you to use the water.

00:34:22--> 00:34:26

Right? This is a sign of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:34:29--> 00:34:32

that's what I say to you that this is a sign of mine.

00:34:35--> 00:34:44

Now and they agreed, and that is the beginning of the settlement that today know as the city of Makkah makara.

00:34:47--> 00:34:52

Now, we were Emily, Sarah. This happened because of the drama of your primaries.

00:34:54--> 00:35:00

He would have a Salam when he went away and as I told you, we went

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Over the lip of the valley so as you can see him, he turned around and he made

00:35:05--> 00:35:32

and he said robina in a scan to mean Luria dvwa in a disease or in in the bicycle mojarra wwami robina Lee up masala foger. I love it that Amina NASS, that Hawaii la him was home Mina Samarra de la la home your school. I'm not going to go into the

00:35:34--> 00:35:43

explanation of this drug. But I suffice to say that he will Emilie Sam said, Oh Rob, I have made some of my offspring

00:35:44--> 00:36:06

to dwell in an uncomfortable Valley by your sacred house, in order or our rub, that they may establish a solid. So fill some hearts among men with love towards them. And Oh Allah, provide them with fruits, so that they may give thanks, inshallah we look at the explanation of this.

00:36:08--> 00:36:08

in our,

00:36:10--> 00:36:11

in our next

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

class, so in.

00:36:15--> 00:36:29

So in this class, I'm not going into this da and its explanation, which is very beautiful, and extremely important. So, I don't want to hurry that. But

00:36:30--> 00:36:39

think about this, that the reward of the unlock mala is tawakkol Allah

00:36:41--> 00:36:54

the reward of dialogue with Allah is that Allah subhana wa Taala will put reliance upon him in your heart. And that is a reward from Allah subhana wa

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

tawakkol is a reward from Allah

00:36:59--> 00:37:40

tawakkol doesn't happen because of our efforts, or we make the effort but Allah gives the reward. Now, see the case of hydrolase salam, she ran up and down the hills. But the help of Allah which came, didn't come directly as a part of that running up and down hills, meaning that for example, she didn't climb one Hill to see something there. She didn't climb Sava or miroir to see the yourhome coming. So she's okay, go Good. Now I have some help coming. She didn't see. She didn't climb there. And she didn't see a well of water there. So she said, Oh, fantastic. Now I've got some water. Let me go there. She didn't climb the hill and she didn't see a pile of, you know,

00:37:41--> 00:38:25

bread or something of food, no. Help came from a completely unexpected source, which is from the heavens directly. gibreel esalaam came and he dug the well of Zamzam there. What does that tell us? It tells us that tawakkol consists of having complete and total reliance on Allah subhanaw taala himself and then making the effort and the effort should be an effort which is gize and holla. And then completely relying on Allah subhanho wa Taala for his help. So we make the effort but we don't rely on the effort. We rely on Allah tawakkol Allah, Allah as Bab worship

00:38:28--> 00:38:31

worship having debacle on the US barbituric

00:38:32--> 00:38:36

so we don't make the Hawker on the ASVAB we use the US back.

00:38:37--> 00:38:51

We don't trust the US back. That is the reason why people who whose reliance is really on the US back on the means. Despite the reliance on the means the fear in their heart doesn't go away.

00:38:52--> 00:38:56

Despite having all the means they are still afraid.

00:38:58--> 00:39:13

You must check our hearts. If you have tawakkol you cannot have fear These are two mutually exclusive things like light and darkness. The one was toggle cannot have here. The one was fear does not have toggle is debacle is deficient or absent.

00:39:15--> 00:39:16

Good classic cases COVID

00:39:19--> 00:39:29

if I say my Reliance's or Allah, do I still take precautions? Do I still wear a facemask? Yes. Do I still maintain distance? Yes. Do I still wash my hands? Yes.

00:39:31--> 00:39:37

But I have no fear of getting COVID I have complete and total reliance or loss of hydroton

00:39:38--> 00:39:41

Does it mean that I feel I will never get COVID No.

00:39:42--> 00:39:55

I see Alhamdulillah I have taken recourse to the means. I have relied on Allah and now I'm content with the color of Allah. If Allah wants me to get COVID Alhamdulillah

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

if Allah wants to save me from COVID Alhamdulillah

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

I'm not losing sleep, over COVID I'm not afraid of COVID I'm not nervous.

00:40:07--> 00:40:41

Because I really don't know, if I'm doing all of these precautions, and still there is fear in my heart, that I must ask myself, do I have human? Do I have token Allah, I must check myself. If I'm not taking the precautions, and I simply say, I have tawakoni Allah, then I must check my intelligence. Because Allah gave me the means. Allah told me to use the means. I don't want to use them. And I say no, if I if I if Allah wants, I will get it. No, you have no right to do that. Because by your action, you are potentially endangering others also.

00:40:43--> 00:40:49

If you are if you deliberately put yourself into a situation which is life threatening, then that might amount to suicide.

00:40:52--> 00:41:10

So Islam is a balanced approach. It's the middle path, we take the precaution, but we do not rely on the precaution. I wear a seatbelt. And I drive according to the law, according to the laws of the land, I drive safely.

00:41:11--> 00:41:18

But I have reliance for my safe journey. Not on the seatbelt, not on the car, not on them or not on my driving. But

00:41:20--> 00:41:27

on the other I don't refuse to wear a seatbelt. I don't drive like a maniac. And I say no if Allah wants he will protect me. No.

00:41:29--> 00:41:40

That is both are. You know, I mean, this is this would be an extreme to not use the means and to deliberately flout them. And then to say, If Allah wants he will do no.

00:41:42--> 00:42:03

We take precautions, but we rely on Allah subhanaw taala hacer la Salam. She'd made the effort, but she relied on Allah. So what did Allah to Allah did what he promised ammonia, tequila de la Maharaja, the one who was taqwa Allah will remove him from his difficulty Allah will extract him out of his difficulty while you're Zuko min height.

00:42:04--> 00:42:07

And he will provide him from sources that you could not imagine.

00:42:09--> 00:42:12

has a laser and could not have imagined that gv Salaam will come and dig the well.

00:42:13--> 00:42:57

Allah provided for her from sources that she could not imagine. omonia tawakkol Allah Allah He for who has the one who has tawakkol and Allah, Allah will become sufficient for him. Allah subhanaw taala became sufficient for her. Allah subhanaw taala preserved her he preserved our sun, he preserved her her integrity, and Allah subhanho wa Taala provided her from sources that she could not have imagined and he bought he bought the love of Irelia Salaam and respect for her and the love of his Miley ceram into the hearts of people who are complete strangers that your homeboy came from Yemen and that whole story continues inshallah more in the next class was Allah Allah Allah will

00:42:57--> 00:43:06

Karim Allah Allah He was amused made erotica hamara Hamid al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
