Hola Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala, mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there's even a feeling kathira from Morocco
my sister sorry to be so wrapped up but it's called and
we are into the fall weather
and my I don't want my ears to freeze and fall off that's what they feel like so I'm
see this beautiful
clump of grass behind me and how beautiful it is. So Allah Allah subhanaw taala so you know so amazing in the simplest of things I mean this just grass is this it's got flowers but it's just it's just plain grass but so beautiful it looks and behind that of course you see the the water we are
today inshallah the last lesson from the life of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam
and then I will wrap up by doing a brief scan over all the all the lessons that we need to know about his life and trying to see what we learned from this and and how we should implement that in our lives. So today as far as that the
the last part of the lesson about his life I think he set up
is the father of
more so what's a good English version for the Irish the it's what you know, points of glory for points of
points of preference. What makes him what what makes him what he was a little
less rhondella called him is Holly.
Hola. Hola is the closest form of friendship.
again as I have mentioned many times before, let's not confuse, when we talk about Allah with Allah, Allah. Allah used two words with respect to himself. One is Kali as far as the primary Salam is concerned and then Allah use the word Wali, which also is again a very close form of friendship and it's even more because the valley is also a protector. He's a helper. And Allah subhanaw taala used is with him with respect to himself and all believers. Unless it Allahu Allah Xena Amano Hello, where do you live Xena. Allah is the Valley of the believers all believe inshallah yours and might We ask Allah subhanaw taala to count us among his audience shall but Allah is the belief value of
the believers. And who are the believers? Allah subhanaw taala say
you heard of Minnesota Mattila? No, what's the benefit of having Allah subhanho wa Taala as le le extract extracts as from darkness and takes us into light. Allah text extracts us from misguidance and takes us into guidance a lot smarter changes our situation and condition from one of being confused and stressed and and afraid and, and terrified of things in this world into a state of Amman and peace and tranquility and contentment. This is the benefit of having Allah subhanaw taala as Orwellian. Who's Allah the value of Allah is the Valley of the believers meaning those who are obedient to Him geladeira who the sign of obedience to Allah is to believe and it is to believe in
Him is to believe in Allah and to live our lives according to the Sunnah of also lies. So this is the
the to the words of which mean friendship that Allah subhanaw taala used in the Quran in the Arabic language there are many ways many words which denote different levels of friendship Allah subhanaw taala use these two words which denote the closest level. But remember
with both these words any of these words, friendship implies equity, it implies equal being equal. equality between friends, this does not apply with regard to Allah with Allah is Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala for medical Hakeem rozet Rosa hotel hotel bikinis. He is Allah and there's no one and nothing like him. So friendship or wilaya or hola with respect to Allah is whatever it means as it suits His Majesty and grace.
It is not like I am somebody was already my friend. No, it's not like that. So do understand that.
Now the father, whoever, wherever, you know Allah sent ambia to certain people
but whenever his alarm was alone, Allah didn't send him whatever his alarm as in a B to a particular group of people, you would have LSR did the role of an AVI he was an OB, he tried to you know guide the people of Babylon he tried to guide other people
in different ways, but he was not the last one that I said. He said no and he said unto his people, he said Moosa is around to the bunnies, right and to brown and so on and so forth. But to Mrs. Ramallah did not specify that zebra Sam, for the most of his life, he was alone. And there was nobody with him.
Except his immediate family except his wife. In one says, Our mother harder game than his two wives, and his children, nobody with him now and power. Allah subhanaw taala said Ghana oma. He said he was a Brahma Salam is a
is a he's a nation in himself. Madden he is one man, but allies calling him Allah saying can Almighty Allah saying he is the nation? He is his own nation, he is alone. So on the day of gentlemen, there will be people maybe not people I mean, I'm dealing with Salaam with you know, big and small nations with them. Eventually Salam will be alone and he will be counted as a nation by himself. This is the position and level of Salah.
I just wanted to say about him carnita He said he's a he's a very obedient force, very important, which God Allah horrible was Nikola Tesla. He's upset to him. Submit he said, I have submitted right there's no even when he said I'm never disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala. He never refused to do anything which Allah told
us about that I mentioned horsehoe with regard to Abraham varicella, he said, he's also very healthy and he's very soft and very kind hearted and very generous.
Now, he also called him Hanif and that is somebody who is very, uh, who's who is, you know, a worshipper of only one whether worship Allah subhanaw taala. Mohammed, Hanif and he's not, he doesn't worship idols, somebody does not worship idols.
Then they say, You know what? I said I was a class. I love a Syrah, which is sincerity and understanding. Both Alhamdulillah Allah Radha said about the test on him. Why he Why is it della Ibrahima boo, be kalama tiene Fatah mahana Kala ini di Luca Lena z Mama, kala woman, Daria t Kala la Yana Lu oily mein. And remember when the rub of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam that is the last monitor, Tried him with certain commands, which he fulfilled. He Allah subhanaw taala said to him, verily, I am going to make you a leader of mankind a prophet, and he will ever he said, I'm said and off my offspring of my children also, please make some leaders and Allah subhanaw taala said, My covenant
of prophethood does not include zali Moon, which is polytheists and wrongdoers. So he's saying not everybody but the ones who are good and this is what happened is my la sala Misaki Salam Jacobi, Salam serovar, Islam Tao there is all of these people. They are from the use of Ali Salaam, from the progeny and from the people who came after even with Islam, then you would have a Salam. If you see this is the beauty of grammerly salaams approach also I mentioned this before, the incredible other Divine Will is Salam had with respect to Allah Spano, tala, he was a man who knew his position with Allah Allah subhanaw taala spoke to him he spoke to Allah Allah mentioned different things and we
will have mentioned all of this in the in the lessons until now but we quickly do a recap.
But he never took that for granted. He didn't say okay, fine. I'm I'm all set with no. Elsewhere until I said in about him and about his approach. Allah DE LA County bahaya de la de la Mooney. We are screen. Now he's in he's talking about like, he's the one he's the one he's the one. So using Allah, the color honey for Hawaii. He's the one who created me, and he's the one who guided me. Wallasey and he's the one who are you to me was great. He's the one who feeds me, and he's the one who gives me to do
When I'm thirsty, were either married to for who is when he didn't say, he says, and when I get sick, he cures me. He didn't say when he makes me sick will after all sickness also comes from Allah subhanaw taala. Right. So he said he's the one who feels he's the one who guides me. He's the one who created me. He's the one who guides me. He is the one who guided me. He is the one who feeds me. He is the one who gives me a drink. He is the one who makes me sick. He is the one who killed me. No, he didn't say that.
He did not say he's the one who makes me feel when I become sick.
This is the the beauty the hub, the other primary, Sir, how do you become sick because I think this comes from Allah subhanaw taala. Yet he does not attribute anything negative to Allah subhanho wa Taala because of two things. One is that what comes from Allah is not negative.
Right? This is also an understanding of this thing. He's not just being polite. He's also the show that understanding of the reality of things, that what comes from Allah is not negative. And we'll see that in a second in the in his life. And then he said, Well, we you meet somebody, and he is the one who will
take my life caused me to die, and he will bring me back alive again. Well, does he add tomorrow? Fira Li hottie at Medina, and he's the one who I hope will forgive me my sins and my faults on the Day of Judgment. Now brothers sisters, this is what Hollywood is saying. He's realizing I hope he's the one who will forgive my sins important this is the man who is now what is the guarantee of Jannah inshallah, despite that, now, I mentioned to you
that the Bible is set up, you know, he said,
Wait a minute to have a spin. And I told you that sickness is not necessarily
negative, even though you know, we can tend to think about that. Think about whatever is around life. If you look at the incidents themselves,
what do they look like you
he was thrown out of his country. When banished from his land, they
tried to kill him.
They tied him up and threw him into the fire. Right.
When he had when he got married here as a son, when a child is an infant, he gets this instruction to go and leave his family in this completely inhospitable barren place, the value of work.
And then when that child is old enough to walk he gets this instruction to slay slaughter the child, sacrifice the child to Allah.
What does it look like to you?
Each incident in itself?
Does it look like good or bad?
Does it look like positive or negative?
Yet what is available is Sam's approach to all this.
His approach is an approach of number one, complete and total tawakkol and trust in Allah.
This is the meaning of trust the meaning of trust is to cut the rope the meaning the meaning of trust is to understand that if my lab ordered me to do something, there cannot be anything bad about that.
If my rub gives me something, they cannot be anything bad about it.
Today, people are talking Corona, Corona Corona, what is going on?
Think about this and say what what is the reality of this Coronavirus?
I mentioned this in one of my other reminders
that people are saying there is discord Oh no, this is terrible this happened think about this
whether it is Corona whether it is whatever right as we call it,
what is it? It is illness it is sickness. So, first of all, imagine that somebody gets it a Muslim gets it.
Now, what are the two things that can happen? He gets cured and that is happening to 99 out of 100 people
they get cured Alhamdulillah
you got cured
throughout the period that you had it your daughter was accepted your sins were forgiven and then you got cured Alhamdulillah inshallah, now you have developed immunity to that. So you will not get it again. Alhamdulillah
what is the other option? The other option is you get it, you do not get cured, you die. You die or Shaheed
death by this epidemic or any epidemic is one of the things that are solara salami. He listed six or seven things and he said
Anyone who dies like this has died a shade
What is the meaning of dying shade? It means that all your sins are forgiven inshallah Jana is yours.
So tell me what is so bad about Cora.
By all means we must take precautions because Allah subhanaw taala told us to take precaution number one number two, as far as love is concerned, the number one principle is preservation of life. A Muslim is not permitted to do anything that endangers his own life or endangers because of his behavior endanger the lives of others.
So when people say Should I take a vaccination, should I wash my hands? Should I maintain distance? Social distance? Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.
Why must I do that? If I'm destined to get it? I will get it. Yes. If you are destined to get it, you will still get it. But you must still do all of these things. Because it is your responsibility to ensure that by your actions, you do not endanger anyone. And you do not endanger yourself.
I'm driving my car. How should I drive?
Anyway, I like
going 90 miles per hour 100 miles an hour weave through traffic like this like a snake? Should I do that? And if I'm doing that, somebody asked me why are you driving like a maniac? Are you crazy? What's you know what's wrong with you?
My death is already written. I know when we're in Allah knows when it's going to happen. If it's not gonna happen, nothing will happen to me.
Does that make sense to you? It doesn't make sense. It doesn't make sense because this is anti Islam. This is against Islam.
Allah Allah says Allah has given you
the resource. Allah gave you a good car Alhamdulillah by all means, drive, enjoy it, but do it according to the rules of safety.
Don't drive anywhere you like. So today people say why should I wear a mask you should wear a mask because you are a Muslim. You should wear a mask because this is the best thing for you to protect yourself and to protect others from this disease. We ask Allah to take this disease away and to save us all. You should wear it but should I at the same time while wearing the mask? Should I have this phobia? Should my heart be you know beating four times its speed because oh my god, I might get it. Oh my god, what is this? No, this is not Islam. This is not Islam. This is lack of faith. This is
this is doubting Allah subhanaw taala
I must wear the mask I must wash my hands. I must maintain social distance but I must have complete and total tranquility and support in my heart to say Alhamdulillah I have done my part and whatever my wishes and desires for me inshallah. This is good. This is what I want. And I tank my rock for this. This is what is the meaning whenever I'm Elisa Lam cerveza merito voice feed is not dot isn't is not just that he is being polite that is also there under the law. But it is because he understands that if my rub tells me to slaughter to sacrifice, my son, this is not a negative God is not a negative instruction. My Rob has a hikma behind that.
He has a wisdom behind that which I don't understand, which is okay. I don't need to understand that Eggman
Alhamdulillah that this segment is there.
What is my job? My job is to carry out instruction.
When I am put into this into this cup of this Caterpillar distribution, and I'm going to be fired into this fire, what is the state of my heart in complete and total tranquility I
am not afraid because I know that I cannot die unless my Rob jelajah who wants me to die unless what Allah has written only that will happen. What Allah has not written cannot happen.
And if Allah has written that I am to be thrown into this fire and I'm going to be incinerated Alhamdulillah Why? Because this is what my Arab wants. And my success in life depends on doing what my Arab wants in being pleased with the color of Iraq.
Morocco gives me something I see Alhamdulillah my rap takes away something I say Alhamdulillah because what he gave me belong to Him, what he took away also belongs to him. It wasn't mine in the first place.
But these are the lessons that we are learning from the life of Vimal Islam. The biggest lesson is resolved will holla
the other big lesson is complete and total obedience to Allah subhana wa
and even though the instructions he was given was so, you know, way out, not not usual at all, despite that,
not arguing about that, not denying that not refusing to do that.
And then we learn this absolutely wonderful lesson of raising a family which is also obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala in the same way
he's all family.
Tech is vital to
their level of obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala
the level of reliance on Allah subhanaw taala
is itself exemplary.
Total exemplary, so Allah, so what kind of people are these? Who are so obedient Allah subhanaw taala was so you know, completely accepting of what Allah subhanaw taala doesn't do. hajnal Islam is leaves her there in the middle of nowhere and he goes away and she says, Okay, well.
Did your Rob tell you to do this? I mean, that's a that's a question right? Did your order you to do this? I am abandoning us here to die or have is this an instruction of Europe? He nodded. Did your app tell you? Yes.
He nods his head he says go
He said our Rob will not allow us to perish.
Where does this this is the point the where does this level of yaqeen come from?
Remember these are all human beings. Right? These are all human beings.
Now you might say well you know what they are they are special. Yes they are special, you are also special.
You are also special.
The question is do we want to become special? You become special by working on these things by making the effort.
Allah subhanaw taala made us all special hamdulillah
those who work for our laser live in sunny Lavasa, Alice rather than that I said that for the human being, there is nothing more than what he strives for what he works for.
So whatever we work for Allah, Allah will give us
we see examples of this in our lives, in every aspect.
In the worldly aspect and the religious aspect
of people who are
we are rewarded according to our effort.
as much effort as we make, to that extent is our reward.
Now, that is the point.
The point is that our hamdulillah if we
listen to these stories, and we read the stories of the memsaab
then we must remember that
the purpose of these stories is to teach us how to live in this world in this life in a way, where does life become beautiful for us? And when we reach Allah subhanaw taala that become beautiful for us.
huddled Islam What do we learn from the same thing? One is complete reliance on lacinato. Two is to make the effort
is to make effort. She didn't simply sit there and say okay, so Allah subhanaw taala, you know, told you to leave us here, and our rug will not allow us to perish. So, I'm gonna sit here. So Allah will not allow me to perish. I don't have to worry. And I will wait and see. Whatever Allah has to do let him do. She didn't do that. She did not do that. She made effort. She ran up one mountain. She came down she ran up the other mountain.
Right, Safa Marwah
and how many times did she do that? She did that seven but did she start out by saying I'm gonna do this seven times? No. It so happened that it was seven times because at that time, seventh time Jubilee Salam came, and when she saw degraded his alarm, she stopped.
So how much effort should we make until we are successful? Until the help of Allah comes?
Allah He will
and then you will see where it says de la jolla
and then what do you do for sub BB handed up the coast of
the neck does. We have Europe
Raise your up geladeira lu and Meg is the farm in Ogata Baba he's surely the one who was most forgiving.
Why must you make us be of Allah and make Easter far when you see victory?
We have the example of a solemn when he saw a victory for dhamaka he did this
does be of Allah
praising Allah, thanking Allah and making stuff up. Why must you do that?
This is to save us from ourselves is to save us from arrogance. This will save us from saying I am the jam. No you're not.
You are somebody who loves Ronald or have decided to favor a lagoda favored anybody. I love what a favor your enemy.
Allah decided to favor you. So thank Allah subhanaw taala and make us that far so that Allah will forgive you in this in your striving for victory.
You would have made mistakes, you would have done something wrong. And Allah Subhana Allah will forgive you for subbing Rebecca was tougher.
In Nakata Bob

What does that tell you about the kind of raising of that little boy? How did his mother bring him up?
How did she bring him up?
single mother, single parents.
She brought him up as she should have brought up the son of Hollywood law.
To be obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Please understand, obedience to Allah does not mean cowardice.
obedience to Allah means courage. It means fortitude. It means to stand for the truth. Even if it is against yourself.
This is the minister last word Allah. Allah mentioned his famous ayato Zoltan is that
all you believe,
stand for the truth as witnesses to Allah, even if it is against yourself, and if it is against your parents and if it is against the closest of your of your friends and relatives.
Allah said do not withhold witness, and do not give false witness
It takes a lot of courage to speak the truth. As soon as as Adam said, the peak of Eman, the peak of faith, the peak of courage is to speak the truth before a tyrant.
As soon as there is an observed if you see something being drunk something wrong if you see something being done, which is wrong, stop it with your hand.
Go hold the hand of the person says stop doing this. And if you are not able to do that, then speak out against it. Don't sit silently and watch.
speak out against it. And he said if you can't even do that, then hate it in your heart meaning leave that don't go near that. Do not participate do not support that and he said that last one is a sign of the weakness of your faith.
They're not recommending that as one of the things to do.
He's given he's giving us actually two options. The third one is a sign of weakness of faith.
Now, what do you say to people who not only do they not do the first two, but they don't even do the third. They go and participate in that disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala
they enjoy that disobedience.
And then they come home and they talk about it.
You vote exhausting dishes, weddings. You go to the Ghana parties after that all the singing and dancing after that.
Then you come home, you will enjoy your voice in there you enjoy
it you will not enjoy Why were you there?
And then you come back home and you're talking about they gave
Did you see what he was doing? Yes, he saw what he was doing, he saw you there. What do you do? Why were you there?
So, first of all, you participate in something which is wrong, then you come and do what which is haram
what is it?
Talking about somebody negatively is LIBOR.
They ask themselves honestly as well. But if it is true, as soon as that is given, it is not true. It is bata and which is worse, it is slander. You're lying about somebody.
So for a grammar lesson on life, what do we learn? We learn to be truthful. We learn to have courage.
Because when I'm saying obedience, don't imagine that obedience means just blind following and doing you know supporting people also in in evil. Allah subhanaw taala know Allah, taqwa, Allah tavano Allah listening Baldwin, Allah said support each other.
In berocca impiety and in
obedience, Allah subhanho wa Taala orders do not support one another. And if your loved one, in sin and in rebelliousness
Allah that adored us with respect to parents,
and less rather than a total respect, where's your lesson that as far as parents are concerned,
if they, he said, obey them,
obey them and so on and so forth? Do all that, but if they order you to disobey Allah,
right? If they order you to disobey Allah, then disobey them follow to their Houma
dis obey them.
See, the thing is to understand that Alhamdulillah
we have a religion which is the religion of truth.
We are not guessing anything in this religion.
We are not guessing we have no mythology in Islam we're not we don't have philosophy in Islam.
There are Islam there are Muslim philosophers but that's fine that's their philosophy. It's not it's not theology is not part of Islam is not part of our Akita is not part of our belief. It is philosophy people have written various things.
It's not a matter of belief. It's just a matter of thinking. We have you know, different approaches to something.
What we believe in is our luck.
We believe in Allah. We believe in Rasul Allah.
We believe in the promises of Allah. We believe in Allah Ray, which is what is with Allah subhanaw taala which today we have is beyond our perception, we know about LA, we will Allah they will become
the showed for us, they arrived the unperceivable will become perceived perceived perceivable by us when we leave this world.
And in all of this, Alice Rhonda gave us the opportunity to do the best that we can do. Allah gave us the opportunity to connect with him and this is again one of the lessons that we learn from the life of Emily Sarah.
Robbie areni kaifa to heal
My Rob show me how do you give life to them to, you know what is dead?
How do you give life after somebody dies? Your family salons conversation with Allah subhanaw taala. And then which resulted in the whole story of the words?
What is this story about, it's about connecting with a loss, or B or any guy photo here, so beautiful that whole I
chose this love that Allah has has for him and the love that he had for Allah Subhana
rabine caper to his mother, and as always say is Allah subhanaw taala as a response to that is even more beautiful.
Hold on to it. You don't believe me?
You don't believe I can do it?
How beautiful is it? how incredibly beautiful is that? As an example of the ideal relationship between the rub and the ABS between Allah and His life?
Sister these are aspirational goals. I want to close
to four minutes before we close, I want to say two things. One is I want to set you set for yourself aspirational goals. What do you really want to live? What do you want to become what do you want to do? And and set those goals with respect to the result of
the aspirational goal should be said that I want to be pleased with me I want this connection with Allah subhanaw taala I want to talk to Allah, I want to teach you to live my life in a way where I when I raise my hands, then my dramas be accepted by Allah subhanaw taala you know, allow us accept this, allow us do for me what I request and begging.
My job has not been rejected.
I want to have a Salah where I am in complete and total horseshoe with Allah subhanaw taala and nothing in the world
exists for me except Allah.
I want to read Quran in a way as if the Quran is being sent to me at that point in my heart. As if the new zone is happening at that time. I want to read the novel in a way where as if the new zone of the Quran is happening on my heart at the time that I'm reading it I
have these aspirational goals. And the second thing is that now that we have listened to the whole series of lectures about the life of Emily Solomon, those of you who do all these x's are recorded, you know where they are, please feel free, go back, listen to the audio and listen to 10 times no problem.
operational goals, aspirational goals and operational goals. What are operational goals? How will I what are the changes that I will bring out in my life?
What will I do differently from whatever I was doing, thanks to the fact that I have heard and listened to this set of lectures about the life of Ibrahim alayhis salam.
Then in sha Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward you and Allah will help you. And then you would have in sha Allah
justified the time that you spent listening to the lectures
to ask Allah to reward you in keeping with his majesty and grace, and to grant you from
his treasures in a way that only he can give.
And to give you what you ask with her and apphia
and then to add to that, from his generosity and grace, ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep you in a state or about have a Buddha to keep you in a state of obedience to Him. ask Allah subhanaw taala to take you in a state of obedience to Him. ask Allah to resurrect you in a state of obedience to Him. ask Allah subhanho wa Taala Jalla Jalla Lu, to decree that you are given a space under his arse on a day when there will be no shade except
I asked Allah subhanaw taala to give you a space under his arch and to show you the fact that he is pleased with you in Sharla ask Allah to decree that you meet Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam on his house alcocer
and that Rosaura Selim gives you the JAMA gozer he gives you the cup of the water of couser with his own blessed had asked her to honor you by decreeing that you will accept this from the hand of himself and drink that water and never do with us again. ask Allah to decree that he takes you
In his safety in his protection across the spirit, behind the surah Salaam
and into general for those who Allah without his
masala Allah will Karim Allah He was named after me. Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
