filarmonica Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala shafiul MBA mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, de Sleeman kathira and Kathy Rama Babu, my dear brother and sisters Subhana Allah, one of the best things I absolutely love about

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

living in New England, which Allah subhanaw taala has given me the opportunity to do for the last one year

00:00:30--> 00:00:41

is that there are four clear seasons, four clear seasons, spring, summer, autumn winter, Autumn is called fall in America, as you know, spring, summer, fall and winter.

00:00:43--> 00:01:31

each season has its own amazing beauty spring is a season of flowers, flowers everywhere, unbelievable trees have not one single leaf on them. But for a failure with flowers, every twig, every branches, has flowers. And then comes summer and the end the trees go into their production mode and you'll find is you'll find some flowers, but very few. The rest of it is all green and green and green, absolutely lush vegetation, beautiful vegetation, multiple shades of green, and the trees are in the production more. They're doing photosynthesis, they're creating stars, they're getting sugars, and they're storing it up. And then we come into this time of the year and we are

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

now just entering fall.

00:01:33--> 00:01:53

The leaves are just starting to change color, we still haven't seen too much color, but it will come and when it comes when light is so fabulously beautiful. It is so amazingly striking that I can't possibly describe it. I remember taking some photographs last year, and I posted them inshallah, we'll do the same this time.

00:01:55--> 00:02:08

But there's plenty on the internet, just go and search for New England fall photographs and among the billions of photographs. So we'll look at them. It's an it's really I mean, my The, the,

00:02:10--> 00:02:28

the example that comes to my mind is, you know, I remember we were driving in New Hampshire, and we were on a ridge and we bring down this, this road. And looking down, it simply looked like somebody had taken these huge cans of paint, and

00:02:29--> 00:02:39

just flung them like that, you know, just thrown. And this guy these cans just went on. I mean, there's like multiple colors,

00:02:40--> 00:03:08

amazing colors, just flying across everywhere. So you've oranges, your blood, reds are in the red, you have to see It's unbelievable. Your oranges, your yellows, your purples. And these are all leaves, just leaves. There's no not a single flower in that whole thing is all leaves. But those leaves are more beautiful than flowers is so amazing and huge areas of it.

00:03:09--> 00:03:16

And one of the things that a lot of people do here, a lot of people come by this year, of course, thanks to this COVID I don't think that's going to happen. But

00:03:18--> 00:03:52

fall tourism is one of the big attractions of this part of the word northeast part of the United States called New England, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, to some extent, Connecticut, but going further north is Vermont and Rhode Island. You know, all of these states. It is amazing after going up into Canada in this part of the world. So I mean, so amazingly beautiful. And then comes winter and of course winters. It can be very severe. I mean, there was there was a time when, in this part where I'm staying now in Massachusetts and

00:03:54--> 00:04:45

and and Connecticut, this end of Massachusetts, the two are very, very close. And within two miles of the massive mass border. So the winter one one year it was so intensely severe. That temperatures were down to minus 20. And with the windchill factor it was down to minus 30 minus 35. They were public warnings everything shut down. Not not because of COVID boo boo but because of the cold and public warnings from the town's ones it is a stay at home Don't get out of the house. Just stay inside the house. Now because it was so dangerously cold it was absolutely bitterly cold. And there is a law here that you cannot tie or confine your dog outside for more than 10 minutes in in winter.

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

If you do that, then you know you you can be arrested because nobody does it. I mean people are people. The law is there but I don't think anyone will actually tie the door outside you know without shelter. So the point is that

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

The windows, but in that winter, I mean, it's an A again, if Allah gives me the, the hat and the life and the ability, I will also post some pictures of that. Last winter, we had a storm and we had 18 inches of snow.

00:05:16--> 00:05:28

And one morning I woke up the morning after that storm I woke up and I looked out of the out of the window, and I saw this northern Cardinal bird about this about this big

00:05:30--> 00:05:37

blood red. And this bird was sitting in the middle of that so that there was absolutely pristine snow.

00:05:39--> 00:05:59

whole whole blanket of snow in front of the house. And this obviously must have been a small, you know, I don't know, maybe a dead tree or something, or a rock or something protruding from this, from the, from the snow, on which this bird was pushed. And the sight of that,

00:06:00--> 00:06:45

of that snow. With this bird on it was Hannah la isla de. I mean, it was so incredibly beautiful. And obviously I keep regretting that I that I didn't bring my camera when I came from India last year. But anyway hamdulillah Allah granted media, we the opportunity to see it and to praise it. Absolutely incredible. And then in winter, you also have these ice storms. So what happens is that it two kinds of things. One is that you have snow, and then the snow melts. And as it is melting and and you know, it's dripping from the trees, and so on and so forth. Suddenly, the temperature drops, and everything turns to ice. Now that makes some very treacherous driving conditions. I mean, that's

00:06:45--> 00:07:34

not something to want to have. But the other side of it is, what it does is that all these droplets of water, on the twigs on the leaves and so on, have now turned to ice because temperature drop. And then in the morning when the sun rises, and the rays of the sun, early morning sun when they strike that it is like looking at a landscape that has been that has diamonds scattered on it. It looks like somebody has done this, this embroidery embroidery work on the trees and the leaves and so on. And they have embroidered diamonds into those trees. It is unbelievably beautiful, with the way the sun shines on this on this ice and

00:07:35--> 00:07:38

makes it look like diamonds. So this is you know the reason I

00:07:39--> 00:08:15

am very grateful to Allah subhanaw taala Alhamdulillah that Allah, Allah gave me the opportunity to be here to see His signs and to recognize His glory and majesty and to praise Him and to thank him for this opportunity and to the best of my ability to try to share it with you guys. So you can also inshallah, now I've sort of verbally described that and inshallah if I have if I have the opportunity then inshallah, as time progresses, as the time changes seasons change, I will also post some photographs you already have my

00:08:16--> 00:08:31

spring photographs and summer photographs are not that many there are some but basically everything is green. So you know, what you're looking at this in this video is more or less a summer scene, which is everything is green.

00:08:33--> 00:09:23

But this tree that I'm sitting under the what you're seeing in the back is is a maple and that becomes absolutely Maroon kind of color. inshallah, when when when things changed, when the seasons change, we'll see that now this lesson of ours is of course about the life of primary Salam. And we looked at the different stages of his life, the different tests that our last grandfather gave him, the beautiful way in which he he aced all those tests by the help of Allah subhanaw taala and how Allah subhanaw taala praised him Salaam and Allah Ibrahim Allah subhanaw taala said koliganek zil mercy Nene Allah said and Salah Monica Rahim and does indeed do We reward the monster we know Allah

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

subhanaw taala made the entire a bad the the the great worship the entire Abba, which is far on the Muslim who can afford it only one time in his entire life. Imagine what is the the value of this worship, which you need to do only once in your whole lifetime. And that also for those who can afford it materially and physically, it is forced on them. Which is Hutch now Allah subhanaw taala made this entire ibadah a remembrance of Ibrahim alayhis salam

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

And his family of his wife and his son, the the brother of hedge takes all the three of them into account. So how do I mean? Imagine what is the meaning of honor? Nine today somebody calls you by some title. We feel very charged up and happy or fantastic this person recognized me. I got this title or somebody gives you an award of the middle.

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

This is Manila. hitta Allah

00:10:28--> 00:10:37

in a lighter, what are fine Allah what what are the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala said that he will he raises the vicar of whoever he wants.

00:10:40--> 00:10:44

What a final aquatic alumna Shura, halakhah sadhak

00:10:45--> 00:10:49

ziklag, Allah subhanho wa Taala said that he,

00:10:50--> 00:11:31

he raises the zeker of, of those people who he wants to honor my brothers and sisters. This is the reason why the life of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is a beautiful example for us to follow. And Allah, Allah mentioned that no Quran he called the law of Ibrahim alayhi salam, a beautiful thing for us to follow. And that is why last minute Allah told us this whole story of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam in such detail, individual incidents that span his whole lifetime, from the time he was a from time from his youth, to the time he was older, and from the data to the time he

00:11:32--> 00:11:41

was, he was an elderly person. And you know, this whole story is told to us as I keep reminding myself and

00:11:42--> 00:12:31

and reminding you, that all of these stories are not entertainment and so all these stories are stories, which are for our for our own correction for us to more our lives, on the life of people like this, who are the MPLA musallam. So that we become successful, please understand this. We have all kinds of role models, all kinds of, you know, people who we look up to we talk about we mentioned, who we consider to be role models in one way or the other, right? But the only people who Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned and called out as role models, is his MBA alumni are the prophets. Allah said we sent them so that they may be followed right means we sent them so that they may be

00:12:31--> 00:13:16

role models for the people of the world to follow. And that is an honor given only to the Gambia of Allah subhanho wa Taala to the NaVi and to the Rasul mursaleen, Allah subhana wa Tada. And therefore, if you if somebody asks you give me an example of a successful person who is the most successful person in the world, the most successful person in the world at that time is the Navy of the time. There was no more successful person during the life of Ibrahim alayhis salam than Ibrahim alayhis salam himself. There was no successful person or more successful person in the life of Musa alayhis salam than masala Salaam, himself.

00:13:18--> 00:13:32

And with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Seal of being a successful person was finally placed and sealed and signed, that there is nobody who is more successful

00:13:34--> 00:13:44

than Mohammed Salah Allah, Allah, he wasn't. There's nobody who was more successful than Mama's hustler, not only for this time, but for all time.

00:13:45--> 00:13:47

Now, this is the message that I

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

that I want to

00:13:51--> 00:14:15

that I want to, you know, give you and, and you know, ingrain, attempt to ingrain in you. And I hope that you learn this lesson. So we go now to the next stage in the life of Muhammad Ali salam, after leaving his wife and son in the valley of Makkah.

00:14:16--> 00:14:22

And remember, Mr. Lam said I have lived them there by your sacred house. Now.

00:14:23--> 00:14:23

There is

00:14:26--> 00:14:30

at that time when he left them there, there was no house.

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

Some of the scholars have

00:14:34--> 00:14:48

their opinion, based on their own sources is that the Kaaba, the house of Allah subhanaw taala was built by Adam alayhis salaam. So and then of course, over the

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

centuries it It fell down whatever happened, it got destroyed and whatnot. And even Emily Solomon's virus ROM. They say the reboot

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

Did other say that there is no evidence to say that it was built by animals?

00:15:05--> 00:15:18

We know that the grammar is haram and it's why Islam built it because Allah subhanaw taala told us that so that is the, the, the with important dispute. It's not material. It's just I'm just mentioning this to invest in

00:15:20--> 00:15:37

the place itself was sacred. From the time the earth was created, just as the place of masjidul AXA, is sacred from the time Allah subhanaw taala created the earth, even when there was no structure there.

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

When Omar Abdullah Katara, Delano

00:15:42--> 00:16:06

opened Jerusalem, when the keys of Jerusalem were handed over to Omar Abdullah Katara Delano, there was no structure of Majid Al Aqsa it was it was bare land, right. Some people said that it was that that there was some, you know, people had thrown some trash or something there. So, it was not not even significant. It was just a piece of piece of a piece of land.

00:16:07--> 00:16:38

There was no structure there was no mustard there was nothing there. Yet, the plays are lost taala mentioned in Surah, two israa which is before Southern Omar Nagaland opened up Jerusalem, where Allah said Mina al Masjid al Haram, El Al Masjid Al Aqsa, so unless specifically mentioned, Elon Musk to the upside in the Qur'an by name, specifically, right. Although at that time when,

00:16:40--> 00:16:43

when there, there was no structure there, there was no mustaches and there was no mosquitoes

00:16:44--> 00:16:50

in that place, that place that Jerusalem wasn't even in control of Muslims at the time.

00:16:51--> 00:17:11

Right. So that's when when they there was no Muslim khilafah there was no Muslim rule happening in that place. The two structures in the harem of aleksa which is Majid Al Aqsa and Majid Koba. Koba is the is the is the golden dome.

00:17:12--> 00:17:15

Please understand this, many times people

00:17:16--> 00:17:20

say Masuda Aqsa and they put the picture of the other

00:17:21--> 00:17:45

night the what is called the Dome of the Rock, which is the golden dome that is not much of the Luxor modular oxides, the big mustard which is next to that in the same complex, and that does not have this big dome the big dome is on it is called the Dome of the Rock. And which is both of these structures were built in the time of Abdul Malik bin Marwan who was one of the

00:17:47--> 00:18:19

kings of the manomaya. He was one of the heart of manomaya Abdul Malik bin Marwan and he is the one who built the two structures of mussels Al Aqsa and Morocco, but before that, those structures are not there, but the place itself is sacred. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who decides what is sacred. Right? Allah is the one who's a Holic and he is the one who decides what takes precedence or what.

00:18:20--> 00:18:33

For example, the day of Joomla your module on the day of Joomla is a day like any day. There is nothing at all that is special about the day of Joomla except that Allah made it special.

00:18:34--> 00:19:10

The day of Joomla also has 24 hours the Sun Also Rises on the day of Juma and also sets on the day of Juma you know if it is raining or whatnot, it is not as the as if on Juma there will not be any rain or where there is rain needed that it will depend only on Juma right nothing. Juma is a day like Monday Sunday Monday Monday like Monday or Friday or Saturday or Thursday or Wednesday Juma is a day Friday is a day like any day except what is it that makes Juma special because Allah subhanaw taala decided that Juma is special. Similarly Ramadan al Karim is a monk like anyone

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

it is a month like any month it is not even the only sacred month because there are four sacraments

00:19:20--> 00:19:50

but ramadan ramadan and Ramadan has that aura of being sacred Ramadan has all the the further L of Ramadan which is you know, the the the bada the the the reward or Riba is increased 70 times the Nuffield becomes in reward becomes equal to the fourth, the gates of jahannam are shattered, the gates of Jannah are open and so on and so on and so on. All of this way, because Allah said so

00:19:53--> 00:19:53

that's it.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Something is sacred because Allah makes it sacred.

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

Something is

00:20:04--> 00:20:19

preferred because Allah subhanaw taala preferred that. So similarly, you might say, well, what's so special about this spot on the earth is the geographical dot, called the Kaaba are called the harmonica is nothing special

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

except that

00:20:23--> 00:20:34

what is so special or much is nothing special, except that Allah made it special. So, let us try to understand this, that all of these are signs of Allah subhanaw taala

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

all of these are signs of

00:20:38--> 00:20:41

the building the structure itself is unimportant

00:20:42--> 00:20:43


00:20:44--> 00:20:49

the Kaaba also was built and it was demolished and it was built and was demolished many times.

00:20:52--> 00:20:58

But that does not change the fact that that spot is sacred.

00:21:00--> 00:21:07

In Islam we have we don't give any importance to buildings and structures and and and you know, their architecture and whatnot No,

00:21:08--> 00:21:19

we have a structure because there is I mean, if there is if you are going to pray somewhere you need a roof over your head, so unbelievable damage, no problem. But if the machine was not there, the place would still be sacred, we would still pray there.

00:21:21--> 00:21:25

Take the take the the the plane of arafa

00:21:27--> 00:21:38

what is sacred about that because on the day of hi john the day of hedge, if you are not standing in the plane of alpha your hedges not accepted, there is no hedge.

00:21:41--> 00:21:47

So what's so special about that place? What about the other 364 days? Nothing.

00:21:48--> 00:21:52

People are grazing goats there is grass on them, you know bland blankness.

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

But on that day,

00:21:59--> 00:22:12

that becomes a sacred place on which the dogs of people are accepted on which Allah subhanaw taala looks with with mercy and with the forgiveness. May Allah grant us the opportunity to make Hajj

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

and those who have not made Hajj and you are eligible, meaning that you have the ability, please make the plans.

00:22:21--> 00:22:22

Please go and do it.

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

My brothers, sisters,

00:22:30--> 00:22:48

even ma salam, and Israel is alarmed by the home of Allah. By the order of Allah they started to build the Kaaba and Allah subhanaw taala gave them the plan for this how it has to be built and so on so on. And when the walls and reached certain heights

00:22:49--> 00:22:50

they made

00:22:51--> 00:22:59

and Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that for us. In surah baqarah Allah subhanaw taala said, Why is

00:23:03--> 00:23:05

what is your vow Ibrahim?

00:23:07--> 00:23:16

Allah tala Ada mineral Beatty wise ma elu Ravana Taka Ballymena in canta Samuel le Ravana

00:23:49--> 00:24:10

which means and Allah said and remember when Ibrahim and his son is my email, we're raising the foundations of the house, which is the Kaaba at Makkah. They made this dua and they said, Oh, our accept this service from us. Verily, you are the all here and they all know our,

00:24:12--> 00:24:33

our a mega submissive unto you, and of our offspring. Make a nation that is submitted submissive unto you, and show us our monastic the ceremonies, the rituals of the pilgrimage of the Hajj and the Amara, and accept our repentance.

00:24:34--> 00:24:51

Truly, you are the one who accepts repentance, and you are the one whose most merciful. Truly You are the one who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful, our sin amongst them amongst these people. Send amongst them a messenger of their own,

00:24:52--> 00:24:58

who will recite unto them your ayat and who will instruct them in the book.

00:25:00--> 00:25:20

I'll pick them up. And we'll give them wisdom. We'll give them knowledge laws will create a law and inform them about the law of Montana. Why you like him and you and will purify them. And verily, you are the Almighty and the all wise.

00:25:21--> 00:25:27

I see this beautiful da. The first and foremost thing to understand here is

00:25:28--> 00:25:34

that the people the two people making this da are the MBR limoux salam of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:25:35--> 00:25:43

they are among the greatest of the Gambia volley of Allah subhanaw taala the father is Holly Lula. And the son is

00:25:44--> 00:26:00

the one who was sacrificed for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They are the people on whom Allah subhanaw taala sent Salam. They are the people who are the special chosen people have a lot of manual data even among the Amelie was Salam Allah subhanaw taala give this to a very high status.

00:26:01--> 00:26:07

And the they are doing they're engaged in doing a job

00:26:08--> 00:26:18

for Allah subhanho wa Taala on the instructions of Allah subhanaw taala yet see the dua they're making. They're saying Allah Please accept this from us.

00:26:19--> 00:26:24

Right? Please accept this from us. Roberta coppermine

00:26:25--> 00:26:33

in ganda Samuel le, Allah, please accept this from us. You are the all here and we all know our

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

neck. So the first thing to understand here is

00:26:37--> 00:27:17

that it is the mark of the slave. It is the mark of the obedient believer that he or she does not take Allah subhanaw taala for granted. He or she does not think that I'm you know, after all, I'm doing a good deed I'm making, I'm praying, I'm establishing Salah, or I'm fasting, or I'm giving charity or I'm doing Xiomara or I'm building a Masjid or I'm running these mothers or Jamia or mother budget whatever night all I'm helping people, I am doing all of these good things. And of course I will accept Why will not accept I'm doing it for him.

00:27:19--> 00:27:22

This attitude is an attitude of arrogance.

00:27:23--> 00:27:30

Because please understand very clearly, there is no action that you and I can do for which Allah needs us.

00:27:32--> 00:28:01

Allah subhanho wa Taala it is by his will that we are doing this action and we need to remind ourselves that Allah is not dependent on us for that. It is Allah's mercy and Allah subhanaw taala in the arm and tell us gift an honor that he chose me to do this, he could have chosen anybody or he could have even done it without any interference or without any agency in work.

00:28:03--> 00:28:23

Right? Allah subhanho wa Taala does not need me to worship Him. Allah subhanho wa Taala has his entire mfu every single thing in creation worships Allah subhanho wa Taala anyway. And if everybody stopped, it still wouldn't matter because Allah does not need that.

00:28:25--> 00:28:32

everyone and everything in creation, who worship Allah subhanaw taala do it because it is their need.

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

Not because Allah needs it.

00:28:35--> 00:28:49

So if I may Allah protect me and just give you I use this. me as an example more linguistically speaking, if I stop worshipping Allah subhanaw taala it will not change anything in the glory and majesty of

00:28:51--> 00:28:55

not only me, if every single creature,

00:28:56--> 00:29:13

human or gin or anything are the angels or whatever, these trees are worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. These stones on the ground are worshipping Allah. Every raindrop every snowflake is worshiping Allah subhanaw taala every gust of breeze every wave in the ocean is worshipping Allah

00:29:15--> 00:29:25

Subhan Allah He Murphy savato Ma Ma, Ma ma, ma fille or whatever is in the heavens, whatever is in the earth.

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

Subhan Allah,

00:29:29--> 00:29:30

they worship Allah subhana wa.

00:29:34--> 00:29:35

Allah does not need our worship.

00:29:37--> 00:29:38

And as I mentioned,

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

if they all stopped, it still would not change anything. As far as Allah is concerned. Allah is still there. halleck Allah is still there creator. Allah is still there. Malik. Allah is still the owner. Allah is still there Rajat. Allah is still the one who fulfills their every need.

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

Allah is still there hacking. Allah is still the one who gives the order

00:30:07--> 00:30:08

the hokum is with Allah.

00:30:10--> 00:30:14

If everyone stops worshiping will retain the fact that they will die one day.

00:30:19--> 00:30:33

Just because you want to deny a lie you say there is no Allah. You say I'm an atheist, okay fine, no probabilities. Will that stop you from dying? With that straw molecule mouth? Who is a slave of Allah from coming in extracting your soul?

00:30:38--> 00:30:46

When you stop the rain from falling, if you say I denial, I do not want to accept Allah subhanho wa Taala does it mean now you don't need food anymore.

00:30:48--> 00:31:02

You don't need air to breathe anymore because now you've got some other source for air because now you're denied Allah. So therefore I don't need his creation, right? I've got my own air source and I've got my own food source and I've got my own everything else. And you can keep your creation is what you're saying.

00:31:06--> 00:31:16

Now, this is the lesson we learn. Here are the MBA musala we're teaching this lesson we'll call will fail, by their, by their speech and by the action

00:31:17--> 00:31:23

that when we do something good, we present it to others run odana like a supplicant

00:31:24--> 00:31:28

and we ask Allah subhanaw taala we beg him to accept it from us

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

because he doesn't need it.

00:31:33--> 00:31:42

That is why I thought that at the end of Salah before we make the dua that we that we make in Salah

00:31:45--> 00:31:50

where we say hello my name is lm to Nazis gouldman Catherine fairly

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

fine hola

00:31:54--> 00:31:57

Paula, I have transgress I have done zoom on myself.

00:31:59--> 00:32:06

And not only is lumen casilla a lot of zilber myself, talk with Lola Please forgive me.

00:32:08--> 00:32:16

And there is no one who forgives except yourself. Who did not miss a lesson to his daughter. He taught this to his dearest friend and companion Abubakar

00:32:18--> 00:32:33

and his daughter is being made when when where is he teaching our workers in the salon to seek forgiveness? Is he saying make this after you have committed a sin or in case you commit a sin in case you disobey Allah No, at the end of Salah

00:32:35--> 00:32:42

you have done an action which is the i in which is the essence of obedience to Allah subhana wa tada

00:32:43--> 00:33:00

there is no action which is superior to the Salah at its particular time. The fourth Salah is the number one action that somebody can do there is no action there is no good deed that is superior to the first Salah prayed at its time

00:33:02--> 00:33:12

and for the one who breathes this first salah and then also what is the quality of the first Salah of the person who nevertheless alum is teaching this to

00:33:14--> 00:33:19

the quality of his force Allah is such that the machete you know maka

00:33:21--> 00:33:24

they were afraid of our Casa de Sala.

00:33:26--> 00:33:32

We have this beautiful story for the Sierra which I have narrated in other in other places. And you must have heard it.

00:33:33--> 00:33:43

Where are there are? No, they were persecuting him. So he decided that he had he had enough of this. He left MCI he was going away.

00:33:45--> 00:33:46

He decided to go away.

00:33:48--> 00:33:56

So as he was, you know, getting his things. He's walking out of MCI he passed by a big tribe and the

00:33:57--> 00:33:59

tribal chief saw him. And

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

he was famous. He was highly respected. He was a judge.

00:34:05--> 00:34:11

So he called him he called him he said, Where are you going? What? Do you carry your belongings in your wings away?

00:34:13--> 00:34:20

I'm going I'm sick of these people. They are persecuting me because I'm a Muslim. I don't care. And I don't have to stay I'm doing

00:34:22--> 00:34:32

that man says How is it possible? What is this thing? I mean, how can MK be minus a worker of the language is not possible. You are among our leaders, we look up to you.

00:34:33--> 00:34:36

Right You can't just disappear like this. Oh no. You come back.

00:34:37--> 00:34:45

And he said don't worry about about these people, persecuting you, I will be your God. He said I will give you

00:34:47--> 00:34:48


00:34:49--> 00:34:59

And I will I will give you protection and I will ensure that nobody bothers you. So he put on his former clothes and so on.

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

The broad or vulgar city

00:35:03--> 00:35:09

to the harm to the Kaaba, and he stood there and he announced and said that this man is under my protection, so nobody will bother

00:35:11--> 00:35:12

you so the powerful chief

00:35:13--> 00:35:19

so the people of Makkah had another they said, Okay, fine, we accept your protection for water, but we have a condition

00:35:21--> 00:35:22

no matter what is the condition.

00:35:23--> 00:35:31

There is an our condition is that Abubakar Delano must pray his Salah inside his house where nobody can see.

00:35:32--> 00:35:38

right inside. So this man himself is there, what kind of a condition is what does it matter to you where you press?

00:35:39--> 00:35:54

Now he's bringing to his God, let him go anywhere, yes or no, no, no, the problem is his prayer. So what's the problem? He said, The problem is that his prayer is such that our people when they see him praying, when they witness his prayer, they are accepting Islam.

00:35:57--> 00:35:57

Now imagine

00:35:59--> 00:36:19

standing before Allah subhanaw taala. He's, he's not even aware of who's looking at him who's not looking at him. He's not talking to them. He's not lecturing to them. He's not giving them power. Right? He's not inviting them to Islam is doing nothing he is bringing the man is with his village. But that that picture, his recitation of the Quran, Allah Allah,

00:36:20--> 00:36:36

or just the picture of Osho, the picture of of obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala that picture was so powerful, that image itself was so powerful that people looked at it and said, this is the truth. And people looked at it and they accept Islam.

00:36:39--> 00:36:43

So this man said, he said, What do you think? I mean, do you are you agreeable to this?

00:36:44--> 00:36:45

I will bring some house

00:36:48--> 00:37:16

no bread inside his house for two or three days. And then he got he felt suffocated. Why must I print out now? He came and started praying again in his courtyard and these people made a big noise of the sea. Now he's broken the covenant he said he will pray inside his house now with outside here so no protection. Our workers enjoy this man the one who gave him protection he said you know what? I mean, you promised and now you have gone against that so sorry, I have to withdraw my protection. I cannot do anything about this.

00:37:17--> 00:37:20

I said don't worry I don't need your protection allies enough for me

00:37:22--> 00:37:43

that I'm over Casa de la de la one. Oh, that quality of Salam ala rasulillah salam is saying when you finish this quality of Salah, tell Allah subhanaw taala that you have committed Salam on yourself and lot of shalom grades. So let ALLAH forgive you ask his forgiveness. After doing Salah of that quality. What about me? What?

00:37:46--> 00:38:02

What does it teach us? It teaches or Moodie, it teaches us humility. It teaches us humbleness. It teaches us that we are the slave of Allah subhanaw taala therefore, if my Salah is hugely superior it is because Allah subhanaw taala made it such

00:38:03--> 00:38:25

the very fact that I'm standing in Salah is because Allah gave me the trophy because Allah gave me the strength. If I am waking up for the Hajj, Allah subhanaw taala woke me up. He chose me to pray tahajjud he woke me up he enabled me to do that. He gave me the AMA and he gave me the PC me the tranquility. He gave me the place to stand.

00:38:28--> 00:38:35

If I were reciting Quran, it is His word that I am reciting. He gave me the memory to memorize it, he gave me the ability to recite it.

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

If I make a mistake, I ask Him to forgive me.

00:38:43--> 00:38:55

The very fact that we are doing something good itself is because of the tofu kafala because of the father of Allah, because of the ability that Allah gave us.

00:38:56--> 00:39:00

Therefore, we need to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for this.

00:39:01--> 00:39:13

You cannot take it for granted. We cannot say what I'm doing, you know, good work. No, this is the lesson we learn from Ibrahim Alayhi Salam life and this is only the first part of the AI inshallah we'll we'll talk about this in the next lesson also.

00:39:15--> 00:39:22

So they're building this house of Allah, with the hokum of Allah with the view of Allah with the help of Allah.

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

And then they say Allah, please accept it from us. do not reject this. Please accept this from us. Please forgive us. And you are the all car on the all noer you know the intentions in our hearts.

00:39:41--> 00:39:52

You know what we could have done what we did. Maybe what we did was less than what we could have done. You deserve the maximum effort. You deserve the best quality.

00:39:53--> 00:39:54

Well, I tried.

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

I think I tried my best, but I don't even know whether

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

That was my best maybe I could have done more but while I did whatever I did,

00:40:05--> 00:40:06

Oh Allah Please accept it.

00:40:07--> 00:40:09

Please do not reject it.

00:40:10--> 00:40:11

This is the

00:40:12--> 00:40:15

approach of the ABS of Allah of the slave of Allah.

00:40:18--> 00:40:23

The slave knows that he has a master the slave knows that he has a creator, the slave knows that he has an owner.

00:40:24--> 00:40:31

And his whole life is focused only on this one framework, which is what pleases Allah.

00:40:32--> 00:40:38

The slave does what pleases Allah and the slave leaves What does not please Allah?

00:40:39--> 00:40:48

Allah sister, this is the secret of success, so called secret, open secret, do what pleases Allah leave What does not result. That's it.

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

ask Allah

00:40:51--> 00:41:13

to make this easy for us, to enable us to do that, and to accept it from us and give us from his Baraka from his Rama and to make it easy for us and to keep us in a state of obedience and to take us in a state of obedience. Or some of the Alana will kremerata us I will be biratnagar Muhammad Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
