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

companions and

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

beloved brothers and sisters, once again we

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

we sacrifice

00:00:37--> 00:00:57

and thinking about it, it's just a one one and a half hour sacrifice, maximum with the transport coming and going and three hour sacrifice. And that is just for a month if we have to do it a regular basis, it is nowhere near the sacrifices of the messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But we still ask Allah Subhana

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala never to let us be attacked by someone, when everyone else is engaged in his obedience and we are doing something else, they will never allow that to happen to us. We spoke about how he

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

had left Egypt and returned to Palestine.

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

We spoke about how lots of

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

had

00:01:24--> 00:01:43

many ways he had gone to him sustenance, he had gone to livestock, he had gone to him so much he worked very hard in terms of business. And he had collected whatever he had to get the data he was engaged in. And when he found that people became jealous of him, he turned to me and

00:01:45--> 00:01:46

then he

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

decided not to leave.

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

He had no children

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

until many years later, when his wife

00:01:58--> 00:02:02

felt for him being such a good man who always need to

00:02:04--> 00:02:11

be offspring who will be who will serve your calls of stream who will send to you just like I had

00:02:13--> 00:02:17

offspring who will send to you just like I had.

00:02:21--> 00:02:25

And he made it he did notice without actually meaning.

00:02:27--> 00:02:35

So his wife decided to give him the service that she had had in marriage, and

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

decided then to Best Buy

00:02:41--> 00:02:46

with a child after many years, it is before that he was 86 years old when he was best.

00:02:51--> 00:02:54

And he knew that there is nothing to lose.

00:03:11--> 00:03:12

Who can ever use

00:03:14--> 00:03:17

makeup besides those who are totally asleep.

00:03:26--> 00:03:54

He was instructed after some time to take this wife of his and the child, meaning mother and child and to move on. Now there are several narrations making mention of what exactly happened and why he left. However, they stayed in mind that almost all of them have come to us from the people of the book. And the people of the book, remember, because the Jews and the Christians are following messages.

00:03:55--> 00:04:02

Yes, indeed, at some stage they have been sent by last panel. But because they rejected

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

they try their best to show that he's limited was not that good. So

00:04:11--> 00:04:20

So the reason they start making mention of how the mother was hated and the child and so on and so on her was fed up and tired of him and she told

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

me to go away that we believe is

00:04:26--> 00:04:46

which means it has come to us from the book with us. We firmly believe it was the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala to take the child to take the mother and to continue until he got to a certain place which was completely banned. It had nothing on it, it was just soil and it was a very, very hot place.

00:04:48--> 00:04:49

And that is the value of mica.

00:04:54--> 00:04:57

Allah subhanho wa Taala issued another instruction

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

Let's meet this woman

00:05:04--> 00:05:15

and go go in order to worship us we'd like to believe, if I was the one who surrenders, we all know that he was a Muslim. He always said,

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

I want to be the first to surrender.

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

Muslim world

00:05:23--> 00:05:25

if you're Muslim,

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

so if I

00:05:28--> 00:05:37

decided to leave his wife and his child, and they hardly had much to eat just a day or two of food, and he started

00:05:40--> 00:05:44

questioning where you're going? What's happening? He didn't answer.

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

When she decided there's only one thing that can be happening here.

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

So she says,

00:05:57--> 00:06:05

was instructed you to do this. That is when he said yes. And he continued. At that moment, she also said,

00:06:07--> 00:06:12

and she decided not to question further. And she knew for a fact that

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

now as

00:06:16--> 00:06:17

he began,

00:06:18--> 00:06:23

asking Allah, Allah, for your sake, you instructed me, you told me to do.

00:06:26--> 00:06:29

The instructions that were given to me, by him,

00:06:31--> 00:07:00

alone lot of him to him at that point, the only thing that mattered was the source where it came from, whether it made sense or not, was not up to him, he did not bother. If it didn't make sense, it made sense. That was another issue, the fact that it came from the source itself from Allah, that was enough for him to say, this is the quality of Islam. And this is what resulted in him being known later on. Allah says, What?

00:07:05--> 00:07:06

Allah has taken

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

close friend,

00:07:09--> 00:07:17

he's a friend, he became a friend, because no matter what, even if it did not make sense to him, he's

00:07:21--> 00:07:25

with us, we have instructions, they make sense to us. We know

00:07:26--> 00:07:31

we know this is a common, we still find ourselves question why this why that

00:07:32--> 00:07:33

will mean instruction.

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

We should also be from those who said.

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

So as he says,

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

some of my family

00:08:05--> 00:08:29

in that very close to the sacred home. Now it is reported that the sacred house when he's either speaking about something that was going to be built, or he is speaking about something that used to be there a long, long time ago, because some narrations say that he was booed, firstly by salatu salam, but we have no confirmed evidence.

00:08:30--> 00:08:32

No, it was built by him and

00:08:35--> 00:08:38

it was then destroyed later on by not only

00:08:39--> 00:08:48

he is making mention of something Allah had instructed him to go and leave. So he is using the same words to describe the place.

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

So he says,

00:08:56--> 00:09:02

I have the order to go and fulfill an act of worship for your sin, the Salah,

00:09:03--> 00:09:11

prayers for you all in order to go out and call you to call out to Allah given the time and the place

00:09:13--> 00:09:19

to leave. So he left and he continued, then what did he say? He says,

00:09:36--> 00:09:51

He says, Therefore all love lifts the hearts of the people inclined towards that way. Let the hearts of the people inclined towards that place And grant them produce in abundance so that they may be thankful.

00:09:53--> 00:09:54

At that time,

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

nothing had happened.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

And I want to take it all the way

00:10:00--> 00:10:17

To this day and age, as we are speaking, if we think Mashallah, this machine has a few 1000 people, he is choking. Do you know that right now at that spot where the mother and child were left, my heart in your heart is also me.

00:10:23--> 00:10:30

Even if we use the colloquial term block is not enough to describe.

00:10:34--> 00:10:42

And as we know, they are extending and extending and extending, and no matter how much they extend, it will never be enough.

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

Because he completely, he said,

00:10:53--> 00:10:57

inclined towards that place. Can anyone say our heart does nothing?

00:10:58--> 00:11:02

If we have no way, we won't be there, right now.

00:11:09--> 00:11:22

From the very beginning, in Mecca is amazing. It comes from all over, and it is there and people eat and people drink and people share and people from different parts of the globe bring different produce.

00:11:23--> 00:11:24

You want the best,

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

you get the best.

00:11:32--> 00:11:33

Anyway, as

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

he continues,

00:11:38--> 00:11:44

and Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned Now, obviously, the history, we find the story of what happened then.

00:11:48--> 00:11:52

He was breastfed for a while, and then the food ran out. And everything dried up.

00:11:54--> 00:12:05

And the mother is looking at the child. And she says no, I must make an effort to try and look for some food. So she decided to go up the hill, the mount somehow she went up the mountain.

00:12:07--> 00:12:14

And she's looking, is there any sign, no sign, no life, no movement, no nothing. So she came down.

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

And when she gets to the bottom

00:12:20--> 00:12:30

of the bottom, because she wants to get to the top of the mountain on the other side. And she doesn't want to miss anyone who might pass while she's at the bottom. So she wanted a specific place and he climbs up

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

for sustenance.

00:12:36--> 00:12:37

We know

00:12:38--> 00:12:40

a couple of times, up

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

and down.

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

Looking kicking, then she heard a song.

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

She's looking for some business.

00:12:55--> 00:13:00

And she came down and she looked away the child was and there was a spring

00:13:06--> 00:13:07

she will tell you that she can't.

00:13:09--> 00:13:09

She can't.

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

She sat down and she wanted to get in the water.

00:13:14--> 00:13:16

So she created a basin like

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

structure,

00:13:19--> 00:13:30

basic like structure with her hands with the muddy sand clay that now became like a mud because it was wet. And she began to say in the language.

00:13:33--> 00:13:41

It means stop, stop, stop because we want to take you and beat you. So you stop to this day we have this water

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

from the same well.

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

And for your information discussion at this moment.

00:13:50--> 00:13:53

It is gushing at this moment 1000s of gallons

00:13:55--> 00:13:58

and millions of people across the globe.

00:14:01--> 00:14:05

Every single one of us know exactly what we're talking about information.

00:14:06--> 00:14:16

There is only one historical narration as to the history of that well there is no dispute about nobody has ever come up with another version.

00:14:18--> 00:14:26

So that is confirmed evidence according to history that it is aware of from that particular type of

00:14:30--> 00:14:38

amazing now from this life some of us allies kicked us a little slightly lower. Never lose hope

00:14:41--> 00:14:50

that will be good for you systems that will be enough for you but together with that there is no point in just making it and sitting at home relaxing thinking the CDs

00:14:52--> 00:14:52

shuffling

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Yes, we need to learn from this

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

An effort is required. And you need to make the effort.

00:15:06--> 00:15:19

She climbed out, and she hunted, she made. She went, she went back she made when we go for hikes we are to repeat this in order to appreciate the gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us.

00:15:21--> 00:15:36

So that is the studio. And this is one of the most interesting stories of the water that has gushed from that particular place, the studio. It still continues after some time, the birds began to come. When the birds began to come

00:15:37--> 00:15:44

in from the in the middle of the desert, in the middle of the desert, no life was there. And

00:15:45--> 00:15:50

caravans used to pass and you know, in the heat of the moment, we're looking for birds, looking for birds.

00:15:52--> 00:15:55

You see a bird, you know, there's some water nearby.

00:15:56--> 00:16:10

So the home was passing from that area. And they noticed some birds in the middle of nowhere. They were not expecting them. So they decided to check up on what is happening. And they said, Go and see where he's

00:16:12--> 00:16:20

gone. And they were sitting around as well. And the water was gushing, they were drinking. And this messenger finds a woman was a Ruby

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

activist.

00:16:24--> 00:16:53

And he explained to them, they were very, very amazed. He came, they knew this is a miracle. So they asked the woman Do you mind if we live here? Why? Because there's water from here. That doesn't happen in that particular desert doesn't happen. water gushing from underneath. So when they asked her the question, she looked at them and responded very, very beautiful. Firstly, look at how honest they were. They were good people.

00:16:59--> 00:16:59

Because

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

they would have come as a slave and captured them.

00:17:07--> 00:17:25

But no, they asked the female they asked, Can we come and stay here because they understood his medical. So from that she realized these people have good character. They are disciplined people they are cultured. So she said, Look, you can come and stay here on condition that this water belongs to us talk to you, will allow you to keep

00:17:26--> 00:17:29

our promise. So you can benefit.

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

But

00:17:34--> 00:17:35

to this day,

00:17:38--> 00:17:42

to this day belongs to us all. We can drink from it.

00:17:48--> 00:17:50

Normally, when they charge you they're charging you

00:17:52--> 00:17:52

again.

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

Because sometimes, again is ridiculous.

00:18:02--> 00:18:07

So they stayed there, they were very happy and they loved the little child.

00:18:09--> 00:18:14

And as the child grew, they told me they were pure adults, they taught him how to

00:18:15--> 00:18:21

manage and so on. And as he grew up, his father used to come and go, his father.

00:18:23--> 00:18:32

He came back he said Mashallah, this is the setup, and he was quite happy with it, and you should come and go. And then after one day, a lot

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

of something that happened.

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

And he was lying down.

00:18:42--> 00:18:47

And he lifted the beam to his son. The following day, he took his son and he tells his son

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

was old enough. I used to work with him and he used to travel and come back with him and so on. He told me

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

I have been instructed

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

to sacrifice.

00:19:27--> 00:19:28

So what do you think I should do?

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

My son Oh my father.

00:19:48--> 00:19:49

Did you do?

00:19:51--> 00:19:52

You will find me

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

a patient

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

Make my children from amongst those who submit to you just like I

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

look at the child

00:20:09--> 00:20:13

immediately. It did not take him a split second to think.

00:20:15--> 00:20:18

He says, Oh, my father, do as you've been instructed, you will find me.

00:20:28--> 00:20:30

Jeremy,

00:20:33--> 00:20:37

just to mention very briefly as to what happened, he took his mind.

00:20:40--> 00:20:52

And he had taken his life and he sharpened it very well, with the instructions that I told you, he surrendered to that, which did not make sense to him. But he knew that it gave us

00:20:55--> 00:21:03

when he was told to do this, he said when he was told to leave his family, when he was told to sacrifice he was ready. And the son was also a.

00:21:06--> 00:21:14

And the child decided to go what amination says that he says, Don't tell my mother. Yes. Leave her alone. Let us continue. So

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

it is reported that she came to

00:21:22--> 00:21:26

three occasions, trying to divert him to making

00:21:27--> 00:21:53

time to shake his heart to say this is the perfect heart. But what do you think you're doing here? This was the ultimate test, no, nothing. No human being has ever been tested with a test by Allah subhanaw taala to sacrifice the one and only child that they had 86 years later.

00:21:54--> 00:21:54

Nobody.

00:21:58--> 00:22:01

But he knew when it comes to the structure of a lot, my child.

00:22:03--> 00:22:06

My beloved brothers and sisters, I want to pause it for a moment.

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

We

00:22:10--> 00:22:11

don't have children, we

00:22:15--> 00:22:30

have the most merciful, those who lose hope in his mercy. They are astray. They don't know him. They don't understand his plan. Sometimes I saving you from something by not giving you something unique is good for you. He knows.

00:22:31--> 00:23:12

And sometimes he wants you to remain in the condition of so he doesn't give you something so you continue making. So in this case, we need to learn a lesson number two, those of us who do have children, whenever we use the word love with our children, we should remember, Love does not mean give them whatever they want, even in the disobedience of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah know when it comes to the instruction of Allah that comes first, we will make sure we discipline our children according to what pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala we will make sure we communicate with them correctly, we will make sure that our children are brought up in a manner that between us and Allah,

00:23:12--> 00:23:16

they are not allowed to come in the middle. No, it's Allah first than everyone else.

00:23:18--> 00:23:32

And it's not difficult to do that. We only need discipline and we need the ability to surrender to Allah subhanho wa Taala And for your information Allah did not instruct us to sacrifice our children know Allah subhanho wa Taala instructs us to bring them up in a correct manner.

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

Then,

00:23:35--> 00:24:09

when they went he pelted shavon This is why now we have to go for this pilgrimage for the Hajj every year, or should I say every year there is a Hajj we go once in a lifetime. But we reenact this in that we are pelting or we are throwing pebbles in similar places as Didi Brahim alayhi salatu wa sallam. The difference is, the devil is not there. But we are removing the devil from within with every pebble goes one major bad quality of ours. So if we have

00:24:10--> 00:24:27

pelted 47 or 49 pebbles by the end of three days, we should have removed 49 little devils from us bad habits which have displeased Allah subhanho wa Taala and leave them there in minutes. So when we come back, we come back clean, pure, this is what we are meant to be achieving.

00:24:28--> 00:24:39

So Ibrahim alayhi salatu wa sallam, he defied the shaman and he continued ultimately shapen against whatever shaman wanted. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:24:41--> 00:24:44

when he had put his child down,

00:24:45--> 00:24:58

and he decided to put the child on the side in such a way that he wouldn't meet the eyes of his child, and he wouldn't be messed with the blood of the child. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of how

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

He replaced the child with a ram from Jana. Allah says

00:25:09--> 00:25:10

Firstly, Allah says

00:25:21--> 00:25:44

Allahu Akbar, we replaced him with a ram from Paradise, and Abraham a solemn snow to the sacrifice that ram from Paradise. And he looked and he'd seen this is a ram and Allah subhanho wa Taala called out Oh, Ibrahim, you are indeed truthful to us, we have tested you and you have passed the test.

00:25:47--> 00:25:58

Now you can ask what you want. It's all yours law, common law cover. This was the ultimate test. And the passing of the test was not only for the father, but even for the child.

00:26:00--> 00:26:42

Now there are people of the previous scriptures who say that the sacrifice was his heart, or Isaac, and it was not his main. His hack was not even born at the time. He was not yet there at the time. And this happened in Mecca, Tomoko Rama, so there is no point to dispute that historically, it is proven through history, that is half la salatu salam was not there. Because after that Allah says in the Quran, once Allah called out to him and told him that we have replaced this with a sacrificial ram from Jana. Then Allah says, and we gave him good news of another child known as his half who will come to him.

00:26:43--> 00:26:44

So this was another challenge.

00:26:46--> 00:27:33

So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this beautiful story in the Quran, and we've heard it Allah says, In Allahu Allah ob, indeed, this is a very, very clear manifest test of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's a clear test from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We have granted him good news of another child and Allah says in Gallic energies in mosinee This is how we recompense those who do good. So anyone who does good, they bear patients, they surrender to the command of Allah. At some point, Allah subhanho wa Taala will open their doors in a way that they would never ever have understood.

00:27:34--> 00:27:48

Now is Milan a Salatu. Salam was growing in Makkah to mukalla in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the two of them Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of how they bootle Kaaba, they boot acaba, Allah says,

00:27:49--> 00:27:52

What avian Pharaoh Ebola he

00:27:54--> 00:28:07

is smiling. And remember the time when you smile and Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam built the Kaaba, they lifted its walls and they brought it up in an amazing way.

00:28:08--> 00:28:18

They were making a dua to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, as they were doing this, what was the da robina Taco Bell mean? in

00:28:19--> 00:28:59

the semi olallie Oh Allah accept this from us, or Allah, we are putting up a house for you. Because Ibrahim Alayhi Salam saw his son one day sharpening his arrows one as he was sitting and he says, Oh, my son, come here. Allah has instructed me to build a house. He says that I'm with you, or my father, I'm with you. Let's go we build it. Imagine look at it, no questions asked. Today when we tell our children come we want something they say I see. And I say Oh, my son gave me this. He says dad, get it yourself. Didn't Allah give you hands? Also? It's a typical answer of the children of today. Most probably is because when our parents asked us, we also might have passed a few

00:28:59--> 00:29:05

derogatory or negative comments. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us all offspring, who will be the coolness of our eyes.

00:29:07--> 00:29:14

So we have something to learn from this. So as they began to build it, it got a little bit high, when it was a little bit high. What happened

00:29:15--> 00:29:44

Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam was getting the bricks or the rocks from his Milan a Salaam there was no mortar used no cement, it was just rock on rock on rock on rock. Each one was fitting into the other like a jigsaw. Similar to what we spoke about when he built the ark, Noah May peace be upon him. So what happened as they putting it up now it's getting a bit high. So Allah subhanho wa Taala miraculously caused a specific rock that he was standing on to go slightly higher

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

and he placed it then it would come slightly lower, he would get the the the next one then it would go slightly higher. He would place it and it would come low. They knew that this is Allah. It is the house of Allah. He has shown us one too many times. That definitely. He is

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

With us,

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

there is the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when the house was built, there was a corner. Ibrahim Alayhi Salam thought to himself I want to put a proper rock in this corner that fits flush in the corner and he was trying to look for a rock and asking Ismail Ali Salam let's put this rock in a smile and a Salam is looking for something, but he couldn't find it. And later on is Milan a Salam came back and he's seen a beautiful rock there. He says what's this? He says Allah sent me a rock from Jenna.

00:30:32--> 00:30:38

from Paradise, this rock has come. And this is what we call today, Elijah sweat.

00:30:39--> 00:31:07

It is reported in one narration on narration that that rock at the beginning was of a different color. It was white, but because of the sense of people as it succeed out, so to speak, it changed color and became black. However, we know it as a general estimate. We know it as the Blackstone from the beginning. We know it as the Blackstone, and it was placed there. So that was another miracle. Now do you want to hear the third miracle when they were completed? They were making a da

00:31:09--> 00:31:10

pramana

00:31:11--> 00:31:28

Muslim Any luck? Oh Allah make both of us surrenders to you. That is what they were interested in. Oh Allah make both of us surrender is to your command at all times. And not only should it stop there, why me? Ria Tina,

00:31:29--> 00:32:01

Muslim italic, and Oh Allah from our progeny also make them those who surrender to you. So he is making dua for himself, for his son, and for his generations to come. My beloved brothers and sisters when we make dua, sometimes we are so selfish in it, we make dua for ourselves, yeah, Allah give me give me give me give me give me i want i want i want, we forget our children, we forget our offspring, and we forget those who are going to be from our lineage, if Allah wills up to the day of karma.

00:32:03--> 00:32:17

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant them, our children, and our lineage will be there at the time when he Salli Salaam Jesus May peace be upon him returns onto this earth, may they be from amongst those who are with him and not from amongst those who are against him.

00:32:19--> 00:32:21

That is how far we should be going.

00:32:22--> 00:32:49

So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala. Similarly, another thing we make do other the Allah grant my child steadfastness, but we are not steadfast. There was a difference here. Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was steadfast. He was obeying unless command and instruction. And then he says, Oh Allah, we have surrendered to you make us still further surrender is to your command, and from our children, make them all those who can surrender to your command.

00:32:50--> 00:32:59

So Allah subhanahu wa taala granted him this wish, and Allah subhanho wa Taala has given him all the messengers who came after him, were from his family.

00:33:00--> 00:33:07

They were all from his family. Allah says, what a DA DA DA DA DA DA boo boo Kalimantan.

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

Allah says, and remember when Allah tested Ibrahim with so many tests with words, so many different tests Allah tested him with so he completed and passed all of them. Allah says Allah in Ninja in Oh, kaelin se Mama. Allah says Oh, Ibrahim, we are making you a leader for mankind.

00:33:35--> 00:34:02

We are making you a leader for mankind this evening. We heard powerful versus powerful verses. where Allah subhanho wa Taala says to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We want you all Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to follow the footsteps of your forefathers, Ibrahim, when it comes to the clarity of worship, and to abstention from polytheism Allah subhanho wa Taala grantors goodness.

00:34:04--> 00:34:12

So as he's making this da Allah is granting him and he's making more da and Allah is granting him and suddenly the rock he was standing on.

00:34:14--> 00:34:19

Its softened for a moment just for a moment, and his footprint was left on the rock.

00:34:21--> 00:34:24

And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about that footprint in the Quran.

00:34:26--> 00:34:30

Allah says anybody who goes to Makkah, what does he do?

00:34:31--> 00:34:44

Me a BA Hema masala where the footsteps of Ibrahim are literally the physical footsteps. You need to fulfill Salah for the sake of Allah at that point somewhere closely.

00:34:46--> 00:34:55

So to this day, Mashallah, what have they done? In order to preserve it, they've covered it up. So it is protected from erosion and so on. And they have placed a metal

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

covering on it and it is known as mahkum

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

Ibrahim the footsteps of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, if you look into the glass box, you will notice two feet.

00:35:07--> 00:35:48

And that is the imprint of the feet of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was salam to this day, it is there. It was right with the Kaaba Amara, Allah who moved it slightly further back, and it's sitting at that position up to today, although once when the floods had come, it went quite a distance and then the people brought it back, but it is there to this particular day. So these are miracles. These are signs of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. The non Muslim see us going for Hajj and the pilgrimage, they don't know what we are doing. We are re enacting what Ibrahim Alayhi Salam did and what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam followed because he was instructed to do the same. So not only

00:35:48--> 00:35:54

are there physical footsteps of Ibrahim, but even the spiritual footsteps we are meant to be very, very close by.

00:35:56--> 00:36:02

That is also the essence of maqam Ibrahim the footsteps literally as well as spiritually.

00:36:03--> 00:36:29

So we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah that whenever we go to Makkah Tomoko Lama, we fulfill the Amara, we should be understanding and thinking of what the sacrifice of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was hotjar alayhi salatu wa sallam is married and insulin and all these ambia the MB of Allah subhanho wa Taala, who came after the sacrifice of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well who was the final messenger. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says in

00:36:30--> 00:36:35

the Alin see Elena de Baca tamo Baraka

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

me, fee.

00:36:40--> 00:36:42

Bina Mocambo a

00:36:44--> 00:37:32

second time allies making mention of mocambique Rahim. Allah says, indeed, the first house to be built for the sake of Allah is that one in Bacca, Bacca meaning in Makkah, which we have blessed its surroundings and they are blessing surroundings and clear cut signs around there. There is the well of Zamzam there is Mina, there is the pelting of the jamara where the shaman was and so on. And at the same time there is the footprint fee is not clear cut signs the house is there itself, Mocambo Ibrahim, that footstep of Ibrahim alayhi salam, the prophet Abraham May peace be upon him is definitely indeed there for your information. Again, historically, there is no dispute within the

00:37:32--> 00:37:56

historians of that particular region as to where these things came about from no dispute. Now when there is no dispute from those who dwell there, then that means it is solid and it is authentic. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding. This is why when Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam was tested by Allah, look what Allah says is called Allahu Allahu Akbar

00:37:58--> 00:38:09

Allah Allah who mo s Lim tala slum to Leon bellami. Whenever Allah told him, oh, Ibrahim surrender, he said I surrender to the Lord of the woods.

00:38:11--> 00:38:16

Whenever Allah told him to surrender, he surrendered without batting an eyelid as we would say.

00:38:17--> 00:38:21

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says thereafter, while many

00:38:23--> 00:38:25

Eva Hema in

00:38:26--> 00:38:55

Sofia nafsa Wanaka spa Vina moving dunia, who can turn away from the Abrahamic religion, besides the one who is himself so foolish, Only a fool can turn away from the religion of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, that is what Allah says, Allah says we chose him in the dunya. And even in the era, we have written his name from amongst the pious.

00:38:56--> 00:39:20

So this is Allah subhanho wa Taala gift that we have. Then we have a very interesting story where Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam went back to his wife, Salah, the other wife that he had had, and he was a very, very, very generous person, Ibrahim alayhi salam. So there came a time when some visitors visited him.

00:39:22--> 00:39:58

And he didn't know them. Three people came in good looking people. When they came in. He asked his wife, Do you know them? No, we don't. Okay. He looks at them. And he wanted to serve them something. So he went back into the house and he asked his wife, is there anything to eat? She says, Well, we've got a little bit of meat here. He says no, that slaughter a calf, nice fat calf we find that the back there. A whole cow meaning a baby cow is known as a calf. So he says, Let's slow to the calf. He slaughtered it. And he ordered his servants to cook it in the spirit properly, and they brought the whole calf for how many people

00:40:00--> 00:40:20

Three people, there were just three of them. Look at how hospitable he was. He wanted to give these people food. So he brought this in Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this, while others also Luna Ibrahim Abu Shara Carlos Allah, Allah Salah moon from Allah famila

00:40:21--> 00:40:32

Jaya, honey, when these people came, he greeted them with Salam. They responded with the salon. In a short while he came with a whole calf he put it forward

00:40:34--> 00:40:34

for them.

00:40:38--> 00:41:10

In Akira homo Jessamine Eva falola have when he saw these people are not eating. He came with a calf, it's cooked so well. It's a top meal, Mashallah, I want to honor my guests. I don't even know them. And here they are. They're not eating. So he started eating a little bit in order to try and encourage them. But he'd seen these people are not eating and he began to tremble in a bit of fear not to say that I'm scared, you know, of these people doing something to me, but what's wrong with these people? These actually people, he sensed something amiss, something was wrong.

00:41:12--> 00:41:18

So immediately, he told me you know what, I'm starting to get a doubt. What Why are you here? You know, what's happening here?

00:41:19--> 00:41:28

I've got this feeling within me. So they said law of in Rosina, Isla camino.

00:41:29--> 00:41:32

Don't fear about him. We are not human beings. We are angels.

00:41:34--> 00:41:37

Don't fear Abraham. We are not human beings, we are angels.

00:41:38--> 00:41:56

Allah sent us with two missions, to come to you to give you some news, and to go and destroy the people of loot. Now remember a few yesterday we made mention of Lord Allah He Salam is the nephew of Ibrahim and Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam told him to stay in a certain place known as saddam, saddam.

00:41:57--> 00:42:07

And he was doing is that whether we will get to that in Sharla as soon as we complete this story, but they said we have come to destroy the people of loot. So his wife heard

00:42:09--> 00:42:11

when she heard she started laughing. When

00:42:13--> 00:42:14

he met.

00:42:18--> 00:42:25

His wife was standing she heard the news. And she laughed a little bit laughed in the sense that finally something is being done about the people of loot.

00:42:26--> 00:42:30

They were engaged in their own sin, may Allah protect us in our offspring.

00:42:32--> 00:42:40

So Allah says when she loved they gave her news. They told her, Allah says fabae Shana hobby is

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

wamu

00:42:43--> 00:42:52

is how Chi aku we gave her good news that you are expecting a child. Remember, she could not conceive.

00:42:53--> 00:43:27

And now they were given news. So Allah sent three angels, and they went to Ibrahim alayhis salam, and after that they were on their way to loot so they gave the information the news to to Sarah Andrey Brahim, Allah salam, that look she is now expecting, and she is bearing a child who will be called his heart. And after that he will also have more offspring. So that is a dua, Allah sent angels to personally tell Ibrahim alayhis salam that you may do our for offspring here they are as pure as can be.

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

Subhana Allah.

00:43:31--> 00:43:37

Then Ibrahim Alayhi Salam once his fear was gone, he was more worried about loot.

00:43:41--> 00:43:42

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:43:45--> 00:43:48

Boucher once the good news came to him.

00:43:49--> 00:43:52

phylum ban Eva, Mr.

00:43:54--> 00:44:02

Boucher yuja de Luna v. Camilo, in de mala Halima.

00:44:04--> 00:44:44

Mooney. We gave him good news when he his fear was gone. He started debating with us about loot and the people of loot, like he is saying, look, maybe they will still turn because remember, up to that point, he had not asked for anyone to be punished Ibrahim alayhi salam, he hadn't ever asked for anyone to be punished as such, or for a nation to be destroyed. He continued making dua for them. And that was also one of his characteristics. He continued praying for them. So he was debating he was saying look, but you're going to lose Why don't you give them a bit of time and you know what, there's a man in there if you're going to destroy all of them Luth is from amongst them Don't you

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

know that? So they said look

00:44:49--> 00:44:51

Yeah, he borrow him.

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

In

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

a big war in T mother bond value.

00:45:00--> 00:45:15

Normal dude. Oh, Ibrahim, let's not talk about that you just turn away from that discussion, because it is the instruction of Allah that they will be destroyed and that punishment will come and it is not going to be reversed, done.

00:45:17--> 00:45:20

So he was reassured that loot would be saved.

00:45:22--> 00:46:04

And he was reassured that the people who had believed would be saved. And we will come in Sharla to who exactly they were. And then he had bid farewell to these particular angels, and they left in their own way. From this we learn that is how Allah is salatu salam was born after the issue of the sacrifice and the incident of the sacrifice. And he was born as a gift to to Ebrahim la salatu salam from Allah subhanho wa Taala and inshallah we will get to the lives of the other prophets who are from the family of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was salam, as the days go by, until then was Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina, Muhammad Subhan, Allah Subhana Allah homeomorphic to Allah Allah, Allah

00:46:05--> 00:46:05

Allah
