Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala l mursaleen. Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam just leaving the theater and the Sierra

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

mavado sisters. We are looking at the lessons from the beautiful life of Ibrahim alayhis salam Holly Lola, one of the greatest of the MPLA was Salam of Allah subhanho wa Taala. One of the greatest of the souls of Allah subhana wa Taala.

00:00:32--> 00:00:54

We spoke about the importance of salah and the Dhamma the Divine Will is Allah made where he mentioned the purpose of establishing his family in the valley of vodka, liuqiu Salah, so that they may establish Salah so that they may establish the bottles of Alice magnotta.

00:00:57--> 00:01:11

And then Time passed. They stayed there. They grew up the yourhome, the tribe from Yemen which came and settled there. They took very good care of

00:01:12--> 00:01:15

our mother. Hi, Julian Sam and her son is married Elisa Lam

00:01:17--> 00:01:21

is violet Salam learn to speak Arabic, from the Quran.

00:01:22--> 00:01:45

Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was not Arab. And neither were his family. His wife hijabi salam was Egyptian. And it's why it is, of course with an infant. He didn't speak any language. But Robin has an Islam. They did not Arabic was not there. It was not their mother tongue. They didn't that will not their language

00:01:48--> 00:01:58

is widely Salaam learns to speak Arabic. And he learnt it from the Jo home which were the tribe from Yemen. And he grew up

00:01:59--> 00:02:03

they gave him one of their daughters in marriage.

00:02:05--> 00:02:16

And he got he got married to one of their daughters. And then there is the story with relation to that marriage and so on and so forth. All that we will come to later.

00:02:17--> 00:02:43

Right now we are looking at a time period when a few years after a primary Salam had left them and gone away. He came back to check on them to see what they were doing. And of course Allah subhanaw taala is the best guide Allah subhanaw taala is the one who sent his Navy was anti primal is alarmed where he wanted him at whatever time it was.

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

So

00:02:46--> 00:02:48

Allah subhanaw taala describes that

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

and that's about that as it

00:02:59--> 00:03:05

all We live in a shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Allah ma ma ma ma

00:03:07--> 00:03:10

ma in the field Miami Aeneas baroka

00:03:12--> 00:03:21

Tara, Paula devala tomorrow's Guney insha Allah whom he knows saw beauty.

00:03:22--> 00:03:24

Allah tala mentioned this

00:03:27--> 00:03:29

situation which happened

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

even every salon had a dream

00:03:36--> 00:03:45

and in this dream he was shown that he was sacrificing he was slaughtering his son he's finally Solomon did that was the only son of the time

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

as an offering Kala Serrano Tada.

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

So if I'm a Salaam

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

tried to interpret that dream.

00:04:00--> 00:04:18

And maybe he thought that slaughtering the sun does not mean specifically exactly that. So he slaughtered and gave away in charity 100 camels, which was the DIA which was the blood money, the value of

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

one human being

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

in who was murdered if the person if the the

00:04:27--> 00:04:32

heirs or the family of the murder victim were willing to take

00:04:33--> 00:04:37

blood money in lieu of

00:04:38--> 00:04:52

punishment for the murderer. Then the blood money was 100 Kim's got a huge amount of wealth in those days. Even today, it's not a it's not a small so even I will Islam did that.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

But the dream kept reoccurring. So he knew that this is now my last man. Okay.

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

So, Allah describes this gentleman Salah when he met his family and I may remember from the from the sound of how this is described, this was more than likely the first time that he was meeting them after he had left them and gone away

00:05:17--> 00:05:21

so he left them and went to a and a few years later I say few years because

00:05:22--> 00:05:38

a lot writer mentions a lot did not mention the exact age but Allah sir Paloma Bella Mao saya, Allah said when his son was old enough to walk with Him. Now, obviously the son is 20 years old or 30 years old, you won't say is old enough to walk with

00:05:39--> 00:05:43

the old enough to walk with Him seems to indicate that the sun was still a small boy.

00:05:44--> 00:05:50

Not exactly what he was a lot of rest, but he was a small boy. So now, which means a few years after

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

even ma Salam had

00:05:54--> 00:06:04

left, he returned. And small bio was not like two years old. I mean, obviously, because it's the conversation that comes is a very mature kind of conversation.

00:06:05--> 00:06:27

And it does not mean a teenager either. So me know somewhere in between that maybe he was eight or nine or 10. Allah knows best. Anyway, point being that he was a small boy. So now if I'm a salon has this conversation with him. Now think about this, before we come to the conversation itself, we are looking at the importance of obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:06:29--> 00:06:57

And obedience, which people who do not understand the meaning of a video and sometimes maybe mistake, and they might say this is blind obedience. And I say to them, and I say to you, and I say to myself, there is not blind obedience, because blind obedience is if you are obeying somebody who don't know, right out of the blue, somebody comes and says, do this, and you're doing that. And if you if somebody stops you as excuse me Hold on a second, why are you doing what this person is saying?

00:06:58--> 00:07:07

Do you know this person? Do you know who this person is? Do you know what this person's intentions are with regard to you? Is this person, your friend or your enemy?

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

Does this person have any knowledge about what they are seeing? Right today in for example, in this COVID pandemic,

00:07:16--> 00:07:49

there are, you know, any number of videos have led they have reduced or I don't know, hopefully they've stopped, but about remedies, this will cure that will cure and some of them are so utterly, completely and totally idiotic, that you have to be completely insane to actually believe that, but there are people who believe it and there are people who are following those remedies, right? And obviously, they do nothing, but people are people are willing to believe. So now if somebody is giving a remedy like this, right.

00:07:52--> 00:08:14

The question, obvious question you will ask is, Why are you following that remedy? Who is this person? Do they even know what they're talking about? What is the empirical evidence that this particular thing works? Without any evidence, you don't know who the person is? You don't know what they're saying you don't even know their intention. Maybe they're saying this because they want you to die. So they're telling you something which will be fatal for you Who knows.

00:08:16--> 00:08:18

But in this particular case,

00:08:21--> 00:08:30

obedience to Allah subhanaw taala is not blind because of two very important things. First thing is we know Allah subhana wa Alhamdulillah.

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

We know allies.

00:08:33--> 00:08:54

We know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the harlot and Malik and Raja Nagi. He is the Creator. He is the owner. He is the Sustainer the provider, he is the one who orders everything. He is the creator of genetic codes. He is the creator of the laws of physics that seem to run this world.

00:08:56--> 00:09:01

He is the creator of challenges, and He is the creator of solutions to those challenges.

00:09:04--> 00:09:16

And as we have seen, this COVID is I believe, I mean, I really swala this is one of the most powerful learning opportunities that the human race could have ever asked for.

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

I hope we learn

00:09:22--> 00:09:25

this COVID also shows that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the ruler

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

that Allah subhanaw taala is the one in control

00:09:30--> 00:09:42

is not the owners of material wealth of this world is not the bankers it's not the the the army generals. It's not politicians, presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings.

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

Nobody has any control.

00:09:47--> 00:09:53

The very fact that you see somebody with a mask shows that the person is has surrendered himself

00:09:54--> 00:09:55

to a virus.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

A person is expressing his helplessness and saying I am

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

To wear this mask,

00:10:03--> 00:10:12

asked me who in this world everybody wears a mask. I mean, I wear a mask if I'm inside a building, or if I went on a public transport I have not been on a public transport for the last one year, believe me.

00:10:13--> 00:10:16

But if I ever have to do that if I get onto a bus or a train or a plane,

00:10:18--> 00:10:27

I will wear a mask. Anytime I'm in a public building, I'm wearing a mask. If I go to the shop, and I don't I'm allergic to shopping. So I don't go to somebody if I do any time I wear a mask.

00:10:29--> 00:10:33

What is that mask? Think about that. Don't just say a piece of fabric No.

00:10:34--> 00:10:39

The mask is a symbol of our helplessness.

00:10:41--> 00:10:47

Right the mask is a symbol of our helplessness. The mask is you and me

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

accepting and

00:10:54--> 00:10:57

and submitting and saying that I have no control.

00:10:59--> 00:11:00

I have no control.

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

Now, Allah is the one in control.

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

So now when a Muslim obeys Allah subhana wa Taala without question,

00:11:14--> 00:11:33

is that blind obedience? How can it be blind obedience? When that obedience answers every single one of the question which as before, who is who is the one giving the order? Allah Subhana Allah, what do you know about him? I know that he is the Harlequin Malik whereas the

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

third one

00:11:37--> 00:11:42

is interested in your welfare or in your destruction. What do you think?

00:11:43--> 00:11:44

What do you think?

00:11:47--> 00:11:51

If anyone wants proof, the proof is Muhammad Rasul Allah is.

00:11:52--> 00:12:00

The proof is a column of Allah subhanho della della della Quran Al Karim. The proof is all the books that Allah Subhana Allah revealed.

00:12:02--> 00:12:10

From the beginning of the establishment of humanity on the earth, the proof is all of the prophets that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent.

00:12:13--> 00:12:19

All of this is proof that Allah subhana wa Taala wants the best for us.

00:12:21--> 00:12:30

If Allah did not want the best for us, Allah subhanho wa Taala would have just left us do what you want, live, die suffer, don't suffer.

00:12:32--> 00:12:49

No right path, wrong path, follow your whims and fancies. The tragedy is that our people today and probably the majority of people in the world today, who are still doing that, despite having received guidance, and that is a that's our choice. That is our choice.

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

There is a guidance,

00:12:55--> 00:12:58

there is a path, which we know

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

to be correct.

00:13:02--> 00:13:14

Deliberately, if I do not want to follow that path, and I want to do whatever I feel like doing, then I am inviting disaster and that I am responsible for that disaster.

00:13:16--> 00:13:28

And then I can't blame somebody else and say, how come if this one is there? Why did this happen to me? For example, people make this statement. If there is a God, why is there COVID? There is COVID because there is a God

00:13:30--> 00:13:41

because He wants to show you who's in control and you don't understand otherwise. He said book and book and book. And he said the profit and profit and profit you don't accept any of that. So he sends a virus.

00:13:42--> 00:13:43

Let's just go fight if you can.

00:13:45--> 00:13:48

You want to fight Allah, no, no, no fight a virus first.

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

Then you can fight Allah.

00:13:54--> 00:13:59

This is the matter of Abraham. It's a matter of taking a lesson from what we see.

00:14:03--> 00:14:09

So Allah subhanaw taala sent us even to give you another example, for example, in this COVID situation,

00:14:11--> 00:14:14

if I go out what must I do? I must take precautions.

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

I must wear a mask, which covers my nose and my mouth.

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

Not either or

00:14:22--> 00:14:28

no matter how uncomfortable that might be, I must do that. I must wash my hands frequently.

00:14:29--> 00:14:34

I must ensure that I am at least six feet away from any other person.

00:14:38--> 00:14:51

to the to the extent this is what we know. I must ensure that my diet and exercise zones overall is good and wholesome so that my general resistance to disease in my body is strong.

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

Now

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

all of this is guidance with regard to COVID

00:15:01--> 00:15:09

That has been given to us by the doctors and medical researchers and so on. So this is the extent of our knowledge.

00:15:11--> 00:15:14

Now, if I don't do any of this

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

if I don't wear a mask, I don't

00:15:18--> 00:15:33

wash my hands I am hugging and kissing people. I'm going anywhere, what not leave the legality out of it leave the fact that somebody might, you know, break my head for that forget that. If nothing happens, I do all of this and then I get COVID.

00:15:34--> 00:15:38

And then I blame and I say you know what the problem is, is this rigid government?

00:15:40--> 00:15:41

The government is bad.

00:15:43--> 00:15:48

What What do you say to that? If you say no, if there was a government, I would not have got COVID

00:15:49--> 00:15:54

if you had a brand new owner have got COVID nothing to do with the government. It's your brain.

00:15:56--> 00:16:01

The government gave you guidance, the government made regulations.

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

The government even tried to enforce that.

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

And then and there is you know, in in America, there is a fine to pay and so on and so forth. And if you are in India, the policeman takes it takes the law into his own hands and hammers you with a with a stick.

00:16:18--> 00:16:19

Right? All that you don't like

00:16:23--> 00:16:26

and then if you get COVID because of your own behavior, you want to be in the government.

00:16:28--> 00:16:31

That is the that is what people are trying to if there is a God that what

00:16:34--> 00:16:38

Allah subhanho wa Taala showed us the way the right way.

00:16:40--> 00:16:42

Now you know hey Lola hamato rasulillah

00:16:43--> 00:16:46

despite swing if I reject

00:16:48--> 00:16:49

that I will pay the price.

00:16:51--> 00:16:56

If I follow I will get the reward. If I don't follow I will get I will pay the price.

00:16:59--> 00:17:01

Who do I want to blame for that?

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

path

00:17:09--> 00:17:15

now the MBL mo Salaam understood this and nobody understood is better than the Amelie masala

00:17:18--> 00:17:22

and that's why rival is about him. Allah subhanaw taala has said into the Bukhara

00:17:23--> 00:17:28

wait Karla la hora boo, a slim Kala Islam to me.

00:17:32--> 00:17:35

And I say when is Rob said to him, submit he said I have submitted

00:17:36--> 00:17:37

why because he knows Islam.

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

He knows his religion.

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

There is no doubt in his mind about who allies.

00:17:49--> 00:18:12

So he trusts Allah subhanaw taala he has complete faith in Allah Subhana Allah He knows that he's Rob cannot tell him to do something which is harmful to him. Even though it may look like that to begin with. Because here is why now coming to him because the the the dreams of the MBR lay mussalam is why he here is why you coming to him saying slaughter your son.

00:18:14--> 00:18:18

Now this is a sandwich he got after decades of asking Allah

00:18:20--> 00:18:24

after decades of God, Allah subhanaw taala blessed him with the sun.

00:18:25--> 00:18:30

And then the first test is take the sun and your wife and leave them in the middle of nowhere

00:18:31--> 00:18:43

in a barren piece of desert, with the death staring in the face, I mean, that's what exactly dog situation was at that time. He would have an exam Do not hesitate. He went he loved them, they did not hesitate there's an umbrella

00:18:46--> 00:18:46

umbrella.

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

And now as if that is not enough,

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

a new test

00:18:57--> 00:19:07

and that is that is even more difficult. Right? Leaving somebody somewhere is less painful than actually taking a knife and cutting their throat right.

00:19:09--> 00:19:11

Unless the limb Allah is telling him to do that.

00:19:18--> 00:19:23

The test of trust is you take a risk

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

the desktop trust is you take a risk.

00:19:33--> 00:19:37

I'm always reminded of the first time that I did, rappelling

00:19:40--> 00:19:45

it was on top of one of the forts of Shivaji in

00:19:46--> 00:19:49

in Maharashtra near Pune, called scimago.

00:19:51--> 00:19:57

We went to the Davos dinner on the wall, you climb the hill and then climb the fort

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

and on top of the wall

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

of Senegal, looking down here, looking down at least maybe two 300 feet to rocks.

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

Our instructor

00:20:12--> 00:20:17

set up the rappelling, ropes and so on. And he put,

00:20:18--> 00:20:37

and I was the I was a facilitator, I was the leader. I was a teacher of that I was teaching a leadership course. So I was the, you know, the facilitator, the teacher. So obviously, if you are the teacher, then you do it first. I mean, there is no, at least in my mind, there is no doubt I will not allow someone else to do something that I will not do.

00:20:39--> 00:20:42

So the first person to put on the harness

00:20:44--> 00:20:45

was the instructor.

00:20:46--> 00:20:48

So he put on the hardest harness on himself.

00:20:49--> 00:20:50

He rigged up the ropes.

00:20:51--> 00:20:52

Then he went on the edge.

00:20:54--> 00:20:58

And that he was he walked off the edge there it was in midair

00:21:00--> 00:21:03

within a couple of 100 feet down on rocks.

00:21:04--> 00:21:05

And then he came back up.

00:21:06--> 00:21:10

And then he says Who's next? I said me, he put the harness on me.

00:21:11--> 00:21:19

Believe me, my belly was, you know, full of I don't know, butterflies and moths and bees and god knows what.

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

But I can't show my fear.

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

So he put the harness on me.

00:21:27--> 00:21:30

And then he said all right now he explained to me he said you saw me do it.

00:21:32--> 00:21:42

And then he said this rope has a breaking strength of so many kilograms. And he said to give you that figuratively that is like six buffaloes

00:21:45--> 00:21:56

now I'm I know I'm not exactly trim in those days, I was trim. But I still don't weigh as much as six buffaloes. I don't even I don't think I even weigh as much as one buffalo.

00:21:58--> 00:22:07

So is it this rope cannot break. And second thing is apart from the rope not breaking there is a safety rope which is being held up here. And that is anchored and you know.

00:22:09--> 00:22:10

So

00:22:11--> 00:22:23

believe me, all of that all of what you said I believed. I know the guy is a friend of mine. I know he's an instructor. I know he doesn't want me to die because it's his neck, on the blog, and so on and so on.

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

I have all of that trusts, I trust the equipment tested, tried everything.

00:22:32--> 00:22:44

But what was the proof of that trust. The proof of that trust was when I was standing on top of the battlement and I took one step back into mid air into thin air.

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

He said don't look dumb,

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

which was good advice.

00:22:53--> 00:22:55

I took one step back and I fell

00:22:57--> 00:22:58

I fell into one

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

and then I was holding the rope and

00:23:03--> 00:23:06

how to give yourself you can fall further or you can come up

00:23:09--> 00:23:24

and then I had a ball I it was one of the most exhilarating, one of the nicest experiences of my life, which was to be hanging in midair. 200 feet below me rocks from the edge of this cliff.

00:23:28--> 00:23:32

The proof of trust is to take risk.

00:23:34--> 00:23:35

Do we have Docker on Allah?

00:23:37--> 00:23:39

demonstrate that by risking on

00:23:40--> 00:23:42

like digging a risk

00:23:43--> 00:23:44

on what Allah told us to do

00:23:47--> 00:23:48

that

00:23:52--> 00:23:54

last round that I said to him slaughter your son

00:23:57--> 00:24:01

even at a salon when asked he didn't say why

00:24:02--> 00:24:05

he didn't even make dua to say Allah please change your mind Tell me something else.

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

What about that poor kid?

00:24:10--> 00:24:13

And we just see what about that poor kid you will understand that in a minute.

00:24:15--> 00:24:17

So Allah Subhana Allah is saying to him to do that.

00:24:19--> 00:24:21

Unless telling us what happened.

00:24:22--> 00:24:27

Allah said Bala Bala Moussa, kala Yamuna in the field,

00:24:29--> 00:24:32

in the fondo mother Tara.

00:24:35--> 00:24:44

Allah said and when his son was old enough to walk with him, he said, Oh my son, I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you, offering you

00:24:46--> 00:24:47

in sacrifice to Allah

00:24:50--> 00:24:52

fundador ma.

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

So look, what do you see? What do you think?

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

This is a conversation

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

happening between

00:25:02--> 00:25:06

you, Sarah, who is in his 80s walala, movie 90.

00:25:07--> 00:25:11

And his little child, his little son, who's probably under 10.

00:25:13--> 00:25:22

Number one, number two, this conversation is happening with a son who he left when he was an infant son does not even have a memory of his father.

00:25:24--> 00:25:31

So effectively, even though the father is seeing the son for the second time, effectively, his son is seeing the father for the first time.

00:25:33--> 00:25:36

And when he sees the father for the first time, what's the father doing?

00:25:37--> 00:25:40

He's telling him I saw in a dream that I was slaughtering.

00:25:41--> 00:25:43

What is the reaction of the son?

00:25:48--> 00:25:54

What is the reaction? What would be the reaction of any son? What would be your reaction? What would remind you actually, mela prevas?

00:25:56--> 00:25:57

You saw in a dream?

00:25:58--> 00:25:59

How does that affect me?

00:26:00--> 00:26:03

You can see anything you want. Please see whatever you like.

00:26:05--> 00:26:06

How does it affect me?

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

Your dream?

00:26:10--> 00:26:11

How am I

00:26:13--> 00:26:14

obedient to your dream?

00:26:15--> 00:26:15

I didn't see them.

00:26:17--> 00:26:18

Show me that dream?

00:26:23--> 00:26:27

I can I can create imaginary conversations. I'm not gonna do that.

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

What is his reaction?

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

Second thing is

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

that

00:26:36--> 00:26:45

he's seeing his son for this effectively the first time. And the thing that he's asking him is something like this. And then what is he saying to him? He's saying funds or mother Tara?

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

says Look, what do you see?

00:26:51--> 00:26:51

Look, we're

00:26:54--> 00:26:56

not alone in the world. There's nothing to see.

00:26:57--> 00:26:58

Look inside yourself.

00:27:01--> 00:27:02

Look in your heart.

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

Look inside yourself.

00:27:06--> 00:27:07

What do you see there?

00:27:08--> 00:27:10

Do you see obedience to Allah?

00:27:12--> 00:27:14

Do you see tawakkol Allah?

00:27:15--> 00:27:18

Do you see complete trust and faith in Allah? subhanaw taala? Did

00:27:20--> 00:27:24

you see the glory and majesty of Allah? Do you see the knower of Allah subhanaw taala in your heart?

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

What do you see?

00:27:29--> 00:27:31

Who is he asking? Little boy?

00:27:33--> 00:27:46

What does that tell you that the Father feels comfortable enough to ask his little son this question, what does that tell you about the kind of upbringing the raising of that son by that mother?

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

What are the two?

00:27:58--> 00:28:02

What kind of mother is that? Who can raise a son

00:28:04--> 00:28:06

in the absence of the Father.

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

She's a single mother in every sense of the term.

00:28:11--> 00:28:13

In the absence of the Father, she is a son

00:28:17--> 00:28:20

who has the glory and magnificence of online his art

00:28:21--> 00:28:24

and who is himself obedient to his father?

00:28:26--> 00:28:29

To the extent that the father can talk to him like this?

00:28:35--> 00:28:47

What do you say about that upbringing? What do you say about the taqwa about the magnificent trust and faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala that our mother has really said I've had.

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

So what is his answer?

00:29:02--> 00:29:07

holla Carla, yeah, buddy. He said Oh, my father.

00:29:08--> 00:29:14

If tomorrow, Saturday dooney insha. Allah who Mina suavity.

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

The son says to him,

00:29:19--> 00:29:24

all my father, do what you have been commanded.

00:29:25--> 00:29:32

In sha Allah, you will find me of the sovereign who will find me among

00:29:33--> 00:29:34

those who have

00:29:36--> 00:29:38

patience subber fortitude.

00:29:41--> 00:29:45

You will realize and you will find that I am one of those who has this

00:29:48--> 00:29:49

insha Allah

00:29:51--> 00:29:55

you know the thing about all of this is the importance of

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

thinking about this the importance of reflecting upon

00:30:01--> 00:30:13

The story of the Quran Al Karim are not meant for entertainment member of the sisters they are not meant for time pass, they are not meant for us to, to read the story of the Quran instead of reading something else no.

00:30:14--> 00:30:27

The for the story of the Koran is medicine, the story of the Quran is life. The story of the Quran is more than life in this world because it is directed towards life in the archaea.

00:30:28--> 00:30:39

The story of the Quran is sent to us so that we will learn lessons to apply in our own lives. So please read the stories of the Quran and understand the stories of the foreign in that context.

00:30:40--> 00:30:48

And to be able to do that we need to reflect on the story of a foreigner, not simply listen to the story, nice story.

00:30:50--> 00:30:51

And then you know, that's it.

00:30:52--> 00:31:03

But reflect on it. And reflection to me in my mind means to put yourself in that position to put yourself in that situation. Mentally put yourself in a position.

00:31:04--> 00:31:10

Mentally put yourself in a position of is violently solid, mentally put yourself in the position of hydrolase

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

and see how it feels.

00:31:14--> 00:31:15

See how it feels.

00:31:18--> 00:31:21

What happens when when we are in that situation? Remember, these are human beings

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

just like me.

00:31:25--> 00:31:28

They have desires, they have fears they have aspirations, goals,

00:31:29--> 00:31:32

apprehensions, all kinds of things right? Just like us, they wouldn't be.

00:31:34--> 00:31:35

But their behavior

00:31:36--> 00:31:40

is about as different from ours as can be. How did that happen?

00:31:42--> 00:31:44

Because if we can

00:31:45--> 00:31:55

get even a little bit of that, believe me, the first benefit we will get is complete and total peace of mind.

00:31:56--> 00:32:02

total freedom from all anxiety, total freedom from all fears.

00:32:04--> 00:32:06

What do you like that won't lie?

00:32:08--> 00:32:19

So here's this little boy, he says, Oh my father. Now he's talking about fathers and look in your heart. What is their? What was in his heart? in his heart was the glory and magnificence of Allah

00:32:20--> 00:32:23

beside him saying to me of Allah, don't do that, do it?

00:32:26--> 00:32:34

Do it Do what you have been commanded to do. Don't worry about me. Do what you have been commanded to do? I will play my part

00:32:36--> 00:32:37

insha Allah

00:32:39--> 00:32:41

so that you dooney insha Allah

00:32:42--> 00:32:58

and he said inshallah, you will find that I will have sermonizing inshallah, because first of all, it's only with the will and glory and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala that we can have supper we can bear patiently, the problems that happen secondly, at a very physical level, I mean, when was the last time your throat was cut? How do you know?

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

How do I know that I can bear the pain

00:33:05--> 00:33:08

I don't know that. So what I what do I say I say inshallah,

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

the one who ordered you will give me the strength.

00:33:12--> 00:33:18

Right One who ordered you will give me the strength. I mean, these are things which have swala

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

farlam Assalam o de la wholemeal jabeen.

00:33:26--> 00:33:35

Juana de na. Ebrahim Tod South Dakota Roja in Casa de Canada, zil, merci Nein.

00:33:37--> 00:33:39

In other law, we'll move even

00:33:41--> 00:33:44

further now who be zipping azeem?

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

What Allah alayhi wa,

00:33:49--> 00:33:54

Salam O Allah Ibrahim, cada leka Naja zeal mercy need.

00:33:55--> 00:33:56

Allah, round talented.

00:33:57--> 00:34:01

And then when they had both submitted themselves to the will of Allah.

00:34:02--> 00:34:10

And he primary Salam laid him his violin Salaam, prostrate on his forehead, face down, or maybe on the side.

00:34:12--> 00:34:16

And when he was about to slaughter him when he tried to slaughter him,

00:34:17--> 00:34:22

Allah said we called out to him. Allah did not say I sent you brainless Allah.

00:34:24--> 00:34:30

Allah called out to him in a way that suits His Majesty and grace. And I said, Oh, but I hate.

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

You have fulfilled your dream.

00:34:36--> 00:34:56

You have fulfilled your dream. Verily, thus do We reward the mercy known the people who do this and who do good deeds, the level of excellence. Verily, that meaning the sacrifice, indeed was a manifest, which was a very big trial, very big test.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

And we ran some rim alasa we ran

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

CMD with a great sacrifice or RAM, but Julius ram brought from Jen and we left for him a goodly remembrance among generations to come in later times, Salah Muna Allah Ibrahim Alayhi, Salam on Ibrahim, and indeed do We reward the mercy known and this is how we reward the people who do

00:35:33--> 00:35:34

the

00:35:38--> 00:35:43

remember as I'm starting from the back, the remembrance that Allah subhanaw taala left

00:35:44--> 00:35:48

for Ibrahim alayhi salam, the honor that Allah gave him and his family

00:35:50--> 00:36:02

is that in every single Salah, no matter what that Salah is whether it is farther whether it is nothing, no sooner or whatever, in every single Salah in the Shahada

00:36:03--> 00:36:05

we recite Gurudeva

00:36:08--> 00:36:23

even though that road begins with salatu salam ala rasulillah salam Salam and his family and a hungry lab. It is called do they Rahim. And this durood was taught to the Sahaba was taught to us by Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam himself.

00:36:27--> 00:36:29

Then, every year

00:36:31--> 00:36:32

the people who go for Hajj

00:36:34--> 00:36:50

they remember and commemorate the sacrifice of Ibrahim alayhi salam, this RAM, which was the idea for is vitally Salah by sacrificing animals on the day of Hajj

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

and all the Muslims

00:36:57--> 00:36:58

everywhere in the world.

00:36:59--> 00:37:11

Whoever can afford it sacrifices animals to commemorate in remembrance of this sacrifice of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and his final song because

00:37:13--> 00:37:28

it's violence along with life itself. Because I mean what is more difficult you to lose your own life or to lose the life of the one you love the most and not just lose it to be the cause for that to add to add to lose it at with your own hand.

00:37:30--> 00:37:40

But who Allah wants to save cannot be killed. That niver MLS didn't work on the throat of his final a somber the same night work on the throat of the RAM.

00:37:43--> 00:37:45

See his wireless alarm, he tells his father

00:37:48--> 00:37:59

put me facedown on the other side so you can't see my face. Because if you put me on my back and you're trying to slaughter me, looking at me, you may not be able to do that.

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

When they when he put him down, maybe on his

00:38:04--> 00:38:06

face, that lonely jabeen.

00:38:09--> 00:38:10

And what is the reward of this

00:38:11--> 00:38:13

reward of this is Allah subhanaw taala called out.

00:38:15--> 00:38:24

Allah called out to him Allah subhanho wa Taala reaffirmed and he praised him and Allah tala said, Truly this was a great salary sacrifice.

00:38:26--> 00:38:33

Sub Dr. Warrior, you, you prove your dream. You proved your obedience to meet Allah.

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

And Allah sent salam, Salam O Allah.

00:38:41--> 00:39:17

And Allah said, we have left and we come back to where I started, which is, we have left a remembrance of this. We made this a memorable event in the history of mankind and people until the day of judgment. Every Muslim who's on the face of the earth, every Muslim who loves Allah, every Muslim who loves Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam every Muslim who loves Ibrahim and he's right Ali Salam and occasionally Salam will enact will commemorate by the sacrifice by sacrificing an animal and giving that meat in charity to poor people.

00:39:19--> 00:39:26

That is the finest the highest form of worship to be done on the day of

00:39:29--> 00:39:37

the best worship. The only worship the most significant worship on either other is the Odia is the harmony is the sacrifice

00:39:38--> 00:39:40

for anyone who can afford it.

00:39:42--> 00:39:49

Just as I remind myself and you The purpose of the lessons of

00:39:50--> 00:39:53

the NBA is for us to practice them in our lives.

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

So let us think about that. In this particular case. It's not the actual

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

content of it. You're not practicing sacrificing anybody. We are looking at the spirit of

00:40:06--> 00:40:23

obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala orders, even where they may seem to be extreme, and even where they may seem to be painful for me, I still do it because I know Allah and I trust them. And I love

00:40:26--> 00:40:35

knowing Allah, trust in Allah, loving Allah. What is the proof of that? complete and total obedience to Allah Subhana Allah subhana wa upon

00:40:39--> 00:40:57

just as I asked her was very pleased with you never to be displeased. I asked her to make us among the obedient slaves and to keep us in a state of obedience and to take us to him in a state of obedience. Masada will carry mine it was me, Veronica, me 100 Rabbil alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
