What is your 111 COVID Island angels when people said they wanted a shotgun Amir mousseline? a beginner What have you been our quality our umina Mohammed Ebony Abdullah la vida and he was happy he have to attend with the steam back.

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

We begin as always by praising Allah, Allah, who is our Creator sustainer and Alicia protect and Kira. We asked the lives of God shall with his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sending his family members his companions and all those will tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of their

00:00:46--> 00:01:35

their brothers and sisters in Islam. Yesterday, we discussed the story of Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam, in a lot like we mentioned in Babel, the lands of Babylon. And towards the end of yesterday's discussion, we spoke about the argument that took place. We spoke about Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam and the ideas about how his nation plotting to burn him alive and the fact that they prepared a huge bonfire, huge fire. We mentioned yesterday that even birds could not fly on top of the fire, except except that they fall to the ground, charred black, burnt black. So the people they launched a catapult and fire that was set up right into the midst of the blazing flames and that Allah subhana

00:01:35--> 00:02:18

wa gyla he commanded the flames, the burning fire to be a place of coolness and safety Poorna Yana Huni Bertha masala Allah He put on him, and then he brought him around, he remains safe and sound. And he came out as well. Safe and sound. We mentioned all of this. And towards the end of yesterday's discussion, we spoke about the argument that took place between the king of those lands, his name was num, Ruth and Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, he put forward an argument. He said that I can give life and death just as your God just as Allah can give life. And then he called for two prisoners, he released one prisoner and that was his version of giving life. And he had the other

00:02:18--> 00:03:03

prisoner executed. And he said, Look, I gave life to that individual. And I gave death to this individual by executing him. And then Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, he cornered him with some amazing logic and reasoning. He told him, my lord Allah, He makes the sun arise from the east, if you are so powerful, make it rise from the west opposing the North, to which he at the end of the day it was utterly defeated. He had no reply reply whatsoever to Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. The animosity of the people started to grow, grow, as well as regard to the king. He too started to plot and plan against Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, and Allah azza wa jal commanded Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam

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

to leave

00:03:05--> 00:03:49

the lands of Iraq to leave the lands of Iraq. And like we said yesterday, the only two individuals who believed in a brand new Marlin wassalam were his wife Sabra, Alex ratusan and his nephew Luth alayhi salatu salam, these are the only two individuals who believe in Ibrahim Alex that was around so the command from Allah subhanho wa Taala comes to Ebrahim Allah salat wa salam, and he leaves their Ark. And now he's headed towards Palestine Philistine he was headed towards Palestine. So he was making his you know, he was migrating from Iraq from the lands of Iraq to words to Palestine, as in accordance with the command of Allah Subhana

00:03:50--> 00:03:57

Allah azza wa jal talks about this when he states for Amman Allah who loot box muhajir en de la B.

00:03:59--> 00:04:51

Salute. Allah is not Muslim he believed in him phenomena loot, loot Allah is not believe in Ebrahim la la, la la Cala Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam now says enable Haji rune in Arabi. I will migrate for the sake of my Lord in who will assist with Hakeem verily he is the Almighty, the all ones. Allah subhanho wa Taala also goes on to say one jayna who will come in and out de la de bout nahi Hua Delilah, and we went to Jaina we rescued him. We saved Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, WA Luzon and Luth Allahu wa salam. In an hour the Lottie Nappy Headed al Ameen, to the land, we saved them both. And we instructed them to go to the land which we have blessed for the IOM in the sense for mankind

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

and Jin Cai we have blessed the land of Palestine, and they're headed towards Palestine, on the way to Palestine. Some historians may

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

That this incident took place on the way to Palestine. They had to cross Egypt and this incident took place them and other state that it was after they had gone and central down in Palestine. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam and his wife sobre la, salud Muslim, they were traveling and they crossed Egypt and this incident takes place in Egypt at that time, was ruled by a tyrant an oppressor.

00:05:28--> 00:06:15

Another fear around perhaps. So, Egypt at that time was ruled by this oppressor who had a very unusual fetish. He had commanded his soldiers, his forces, that if anybody if any caravan were to pass by Egypt, or had to cross the lands of Egypt, the caravan had to be checked. In other words, the travelers had to be checked. And if there were women, and as long as these women were, the wives of those men who were within that caravan are the travelers, then he had instructed the soldiers to bring the women to him. He had this fetish where he used to abuse other people's wives. He used to abuse the wives of other men. This was where he, you know, this was something that he took a lot of

00:06:15--> 00:06:48

pleasure in. So Ibrahim Alayhi, Salatu, salam, he was informed about this king, and they had to travel through Egypt, there was no other option. And why is they were crossing Egypt, the soldiers, the forces, they stopped them, and they started to check them. And at that point, then asked Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, who is this lady? I mean, what is her relationship with you? Now, the instructions of the king were very specific. They were only to be abroad, if they were that individuals, wives. I mean, if they were related in any other way, he was not interested. I mean, if they're, if they were

00:06:49--> 00:07:35

mothers or sisters, then he wasn't interested. But if it if a lady was someone's wife, only then he would be interested in that particular lady. So Ibrahim Alayhi, salatu salam, knowing about this tyrant of a king, he replied, She is my sister, and he was intending that she was his sister in Islam and not a blood sister, because after all, she was his wife. So he intended that she is my sister in Islam, and he replied to the forces. But now the thing was that sarala salatu salam was a very, very beautiful lady. She was very beautiful. So the minute the soldiers saw her, they felt that, you know, our King has to see this woman. So they said, it doesn't matter. Even if she be your

00:07:35--> 00:08:16

sister. We have to take her to the king. If the king releases, it's a different story, but we have to take her to the king, and by force, they kidnap her, and they take her to the king, Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam was in anguish was in so much of grief. Just imagine your wife plucked away from you and now is being taken captive is taken captive to a king who is known to be a tyrant Allahu Akbar. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He raises his hands into that this is the quality of a true believer, many brothers and sisters and staff. Whenever you are in a difficulty whenever you are in a predicament, it is upon you to turn to Allah subhanho wa

00:08:16--> 00:09:00

Taala. It is upon you to turn to Allah azza wa jal because we learn so many lessons from the life of Rahim, Allah Azza wa sallam, and the greatest lesson of them all is tawakkol has gone a long way and everybody will keep their manola when we learn this very well, even yesterday, when he was about to be thrown into the blazing flames. gibreel alayhi salatu salam comes down, and he offers help a lot of an ark Angel Jabri. He says, What do you want done yada yada? What do you want that a friend of Allah to which he brought him Allah, Allah very commonly replies from you, I need nothing. I wait for the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala, as an alliance, directly commanded the fire to be a place

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

of coolness and safety for Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam. So even in this particular situation, his wife is being plucked away from him taken captive and is being taken to the king who is known to be a tyrant. He Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala and praise unto allies virgin, now Salalah alayhi salatu salam, she's taken to the king, and no sooner she was presented in front of the king and he was a pervert, he was a corrupt individual, this particular thing, the minute he saw the exquisite beauty of sobre la casa that was and he could not contain himself. He could not control himself. He outstretched his hand to touch her in a bad manner. The minute he

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

tried to do that, she sobre la salatu salam she do after all, being the wife of the friend of Allah Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam, she turns to Allah is the virgin she immediately raises her hands into Ah, no sooner she raised

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

Her hands into the king's hand, you know, became paralyzed and fell to his side. The King's hand became paralyzed, he lost control of his arm, and it fell to his side. He was surprised what's happening. He was in so much of fear, he cries out, oh, please help me. pray unto your God and release me from this torture that I'm going through because he was in excruciating pain as well. So he said, Please release me from the torture that I'm going through, I will not harm you just release me. She didn't pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this king, his hand goes back to normal. But no sooner that happened, he once again out stretches his hand to try and touch her. She again plays to

00:10:42--> 00:11:04

Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this time, the pain was intense, even more intense, it doubled, he was in much more pain. And then he cries out again, please, look, I'm not going to touch you, I'm not going to harm you just release me from this point of view of God and release from this. She prays to Allah subhana wa Jalla. And this man was released, but he learned his lesson. Now, he tries to outstretched his hand again, this is

00:11:06--> 00:11:47

he was such a you know, corrupt individual and such a pervert individual. He stretches his hand again to touch. This time she prays to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the pain was just unbearable. He couldn't bear it at all the cries of I promise you, I will not harm you. If you release me if you pray to your God and release me, I will give you something and send you on your way. I will give you something and send you on your way just released me from this group of years. So she prays to Allah subhanho wa Taala and the king his hand goes back to normal. The King cries out he calls his soldiers his forces and he tells them you have brought a rich, you have brought a witch who has

00:11:47--> 00:11:56

supernatural powers. Get her away from here, and he calls for the people here promise to give her a gift. He calls for a slave girl by the name Hi,

00:11:57--> 00:12:42

Sam. And he this king gifts harder. Allah salatu salam to sobre la salatu salam, and as you can please continue no harm done before in Somalia salat wa salam takes hacia Elena salatu salam with her and she goes to ignore him and register to Salaam and informs him about what happened. Some scholars mentioned that Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam was already informed by Allah azza wa jal in regard to whatever happened within the confines within the walls of the palace. Allah subhanho wa Taala did not leave his friend in the dark. Instead, he informed him about exactly what took place inside the palace. So so that incident ends there. And they continue. So like I said, Some

00:12:42--> 00:13:28

historians mentioned that this happened on the way to Palestine, some say it was after they had settled down in Palestine. So they go down and settle down in Palestine. If we go with the first version, they go and settle down in Palestine. So a long period of time passes. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam was now becoming old and frail, and he had not been blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. with HIV, he was not here he had not been blessed by Allah subhana wa Jalla with HIV. So his wife, Sara Ali Hassan Abdul salam, she herself one day suggested to Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam Yeah, Brahim, why don't you marry Haji? And, you know, through that marriage, perhaps she may conceive a

00:13:28--> 00:13:43

child for you by the will of Allah Subhana Medina, Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam thought about it, and he agreed to marry hardrada. So that was lamb he marries her and by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. She gives birth to a baby boy.

00:13:44--> 00:14:10

She gives birth to a baby boy. And this baby boy was named as isma. In this baby boy was named as the first child of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam but the brothers and sisters in Islam just imagine the happiness of Ibrahim Maliki. So that was his first born, a baby boy is my daddy. So that was the coolness to his eyes.

00:14:11--> 00:14:40

Now after Haji, Allah has nothing, not a slam game, but but there was a lot of attention on hydrolysis that was rather given to hardrada to Sarah. There was a lot of attention given to this Marina de la to slam and sobre la has led to Islam felt left out, and suddenly she became very possessive of her husband, Sara Sara Sara, she became very possessive of her husband, and she tells her husband to take Haji alayhi salatu salam and is married

00:14:41--> 00:15:00

to another land she said you take them and keep them with you in another land. Don't keep them here. Rahim Allah. Islam was contemplating in this regard was thinking about it. And then the command on the last panel what Thailand comes to Ibrahim Allah His dad was around to take hotjar his wife hotjar, Elena salat wa salam and he

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

Son is my animal that was around to a land a faraway land, which is to be known as Makkah inshallah Thailand as we will discuss the story. So Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam, he abides by the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He takes harder and is Marin Alhamdulillah wa was Salam. And he leaves the land that he was a In other words, they were in Palestine, he leaves Palestine, and now head heads towards

00:15:29--> 00:16:15

Mecca. Now Makkah at that time was a barren land. It was a barren desert. There was not a human being in sight, no water, no trees, nothing, just a dry, barren land. But the commander of Allah was to go and leave your wife and your son there. So Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, he takes them. He goes there and he leaves them there. And he starts to head back. hacia Alina salatu salam, being a mother, who had just given birth to a young baby, panic gripped and she runs behind Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. And she asked him, Why are you leaving us and going, why are you leaving us and going? Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, he kept quiet and he kept moving. She kept on repeating the

00:16:15--> 00:16:55

question. Yeah, Ibrahim, tell me why are you leaving us here and going, there's not a human being inside, not a tree inside. No water, we will die We will starve. Why are you leaving us and going, Rahim Allah insha. Allah did not reply because you must understand the plight of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, he's leaving his wife and his firstborn. The coolness of his eyes is my analysis that was in the middle of a desert and he is doing just fine. Imagine the grief and the turmoil of emotions that he brought in Malaysia that was that must have been going through. He was feeling so sad, but he had to abide by the command of Allah finally had asked the Brahim Allah. He started with

00:16:55--> 00:17:32

lamb yet Brahim, tell me, is this a command of Allah? Are you leaving us because Allah commanded you to withdraw him Alisa to Salaam replied Yes, it is a command from Allah. Allah Medina. No sooner he informed her that it was a command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. She, you know, her heart was at peace. Because she knew that Allah subhanho wa Taala would look after her and would look after her son, she so she goes back to his Merida days. And he brought him holly leaves to Palestine.

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

Now my dear brothers and sisters was just trying to understand the level of tawakkol amongst these individuals, just amazing. The levels of tawakkol you look at the story of Ibrahim Ali, and there are so many examples of the workload of complete reliance on Allah subhanho wa Taala. And like I said yesterday, these stories are not to keep us entertained, but rather for us to derive lessons from there are so many lessons to be derived from the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam. Now look at Haji Ali Hassan was left in the middle of a desert, a barren bear desert, but the minute she asked her husband, America, did Allah subhana wa Jalla command you in this regard? He replies Yes, her

00:18:17--> 00:18:44

heart is at peace because why she had complete reliance on Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah is the best Disposer of my affairs has been a long one everybody lucky, Allah has my best interests by Him and He will look after me. She had this complete trust. She goes back to is my darling Serato Saran and as Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam was leaving them he prays to Allah subhanho wa Taala with a heavy hand.

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

He placed lies

00:18:49--> 00:18:52

in the skin to me.

00:18:53--> 00:19:01

He bhiwadi novo D is our bhiwadi nobody visa

00:19:02--> 00:19:03

rob Donnelly up masala

00:19:12--> 00:19:15

Sita we lie him.

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

He prays to Allah subhanho wa Taala with a heavy heart for Allah. I have made my offspring my family to dwell be wildin ye visa I have made them to 12 I have left them in and in a barren Valley in a valley that has no cultivation whatsoever, a barren Valley in the bicycle Muharram by your sacred house because that was the point that was the spot where the Kaaba was to be built. Rob Benelli up Masada Oh Allah, let them perform us Allah further if he doesn't mean Allah

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

And let the hearts of mankind further I'll have a determination as to lead the hearts of the people inclined towards them. let people be kind towards them that we lay him was Zuko Home Minister marotti dynamische karoun and O Allah provide them with fruits so that they may give thanks unto you so that they may render gratitude. My dear brothers and sisters in Islam scholars back him up from Allah mentioned that this

00:20:30--> 00:20:42

goes on until today and until the day of karma, and that is why you see the lands of mankind Medina being blessed so much Allahu Akbar, because after all, he said Ramana even asked him to

00:20:43--> 00:20:47

look at the words my offspring, it was just not his smile.

00:20:48--> 00:21:28

Generation after generation, and as you all are well aware, I'm sure that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his lineage traces back to Israel. And he salatu salam is married to some of the great great grandfather of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam the Arabs who live in Makkah today are blessed so much. The lands are blessed so much because of the sacrifice and the drama of the Brahim alayhi salatu salam was Zuko, minetta, Murat. provide them with ample provisions today you can see, you know, they have been, they're blessed so much, but Allah subhanho wa Taala, because of the Torah of this great prophet, Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam.

00:21:29--> 00:22:03

So, Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, he leaves his wife hacia, Allah salatu salam, and he goes, now there was some food and water that they had with them. This little food and water ran out the little food and water that they had with them in the sense that she had with her. She had her child, the little food and water that they had ran out. And now the little child young is married, he starts to cry out of hunger, he starts to weep and cry out of hunger. Now, how gerada

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

knew that Allah subhanho wa Taala is there for them. Like I said earlier, she had mastered the concept of tawakkol. But her motherly instincts started to kick in. You know, she was a mother at the end of the day, and she was worried for her child. And she starts to panic because she couldn't see a single human being inside, not a single bird. You know, if there were birds, at least that would indicate that there's a water, no water, no life whatsoever. So she starts to panic, and she climbs up a hill, known as Safa, she climbs up a hill known as a sofa. From that hill she looks whether there's anybody to be seen. She cries out, please help us please help us. she climbs up the

00:22:46--> 00:23:34

hill, a sofa and then runs back and climbs up another Hill known as a Safa and Marwa Safa Marwah, she kept running back and forth crying for help. She runs seven times, seven times, ending on Marwa and life today. Don't think of the heroes you know today when you go Mashallah, they've got the nice air conditioning going on. You've got the cool flows you've got enough for Muslims or the quench your thirst to run, get to put yourselves in the shoes of Haji Ali Hassan wasallam, hot burning sand barren desert, we run to commemorate and to remember our mother hydrolase serratos llama she was running out of panic. Her child is crying in the middle of a desert, no shade, no nothing

00:23:34--> 00:23:37

whatsoever, and she's panicking and she's running back and forth.

00:23:39--> 00:24:25

Okay, she runs seven times, up and down these two crude hills at that time of Safa and Marwa and the seventh time, she ends on Marwa and then she hears someone by her child. She just feels the presence of someone by her child. And she looks towards his mouth a lot in the salon to salon and she sees a shadow of an individual you know the silhouette of an individual. So she runs the child wondering who is buying my child and she finds gibreel alayhis salam has come January alehissalaam has arrived by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Certain scholars state that he struck the ground with the tip of his wing certain other scholars state that he struck the ground with his foot. No sooner he

00:24:25--> 00:24:27

struck the ground.

00:24:28--> 00:24:36

water starts to gush out a spring broke out and water started to gush from the crack in the ground.

00:24:37--> 00:24:59

And this water was such a blessing type of water. This is the water to be known as Zamzam and this is the water that we consume when we go to Mankato and we go to the lands of katroo de this water this blesser water started to flow started to flow. Haji Ali Hassan Versace quenches thirst and she quenches the thirst of her son

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

marine algae Sara Sara, this was a great blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala this water My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, Muslims in Lima Zhu Li Bella, the water of Zamzam is for what you drink it for. So scholars Rahim Allah highlight that if you have any need if you have any new ad that you want to make, drink the water of Zamzam and intend that insha Allah Allah, Allah azza wa jal will answer your dua, especially those who are suffering due to sicknesses, psychological problems, marital issues, marital problems between two spouses, scholars date, let the two spouses bring prisms of water and let them intend that the problems be resolved amongst themselves because

00:25:45--> 00:26:21

my ohsms empathy mashery Bella the water absorbs them is for what it is drunk. If you drink the water absorbs them with a specific intention with firm conviction with deep belief grounded in your heart in sha Allah Allah, Allah has originally answered your da. So the two spouses were having medical problems let the two spouses drink some some water and let them intend that these problems be solved that our hearts be filled with the love for one another. At times people go around searching for what love potions, magical love potions, they go around asking all these Voodoo doctors can I have a love potion? I want my husband to fall in love with me. I want my wife to fall

00:26:21--> 00:27:04

in love with me we're having problems and the Buddha doctor he makes a nice concoction out of you know what not. But look, we have a powerful liquid Zamzam drink it as much as possible. Drink it as much as possible and intent that which you wish inshallah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will answer your desires. Now many brothers and sisters in Islam trees started to grow because naturally when water sprouts from somewhere, it becomes like an oasis in the middle of a desert. And our trees started to grow date pants started to grow, birds started to fly overhead. And at that point, there was a caravan that was crossing and they do one hunting for water. And during those days, whenever

00:27:04--> 00:27:30

you spot a circle of birds, then you can come to a conclusion that there has to be water or trees or something like that. So they saw some birds overhead in the sense of close to that area and they make their way towards the water. The minute they reach microsomes in the spring, they see an amazing sight and lady with a young child. So they thought okay, this belongs to her the last panel gyla put this in their hearts. Why?

00:27:31--> 00:28:14

The duality Rahim Allah is that was around, let the hearts of people be inclined towards my family, that the hearts of people be inclined towards my family. So they go up to her they go up to boom is married the mother of his mind to Sarah, and they asked her permission. Can we you know, refresh ourselves? Can we quench our thirst? Can we water our animals please, to which he grants them permission. They water their animals and they realize that this is a really nice pleasant place. And they settle down there. They settled down there. They were an added tribe. They weren't out of tribe by the name job form, if I'm not mistaken, they settle down there. And that's when civilization

00:28:14--> 00:28:55

begins in Makkah. This is the story of Mecca. This is how Makkah began the lives of mankind. So the area began to develop day by day and that was the beginning of the bless that lands of mankind. Now he's smiling, he's lactose and he starts to grow, he starts to grow. Now that becomes a little village there. People come there and now they have you know trade happens there. Everything is happening like normal is my dad he starts to grow. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam used to visit them often. He used to visit them often he used to be in Palestine. And he used to come to Makkah to visit Haji Ali Hassan and his beloved son is married to Sam. Now he's married. He grows, he grows

00:28:55--> 00:29:33

and now he becomes a young Adonis and he starts to help his father. He's running around. He's helping his father fella Bella Mara, who say Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in the forum when his son was old enough to walk with Him, in the sense he used to walk with him is to help his father. Now this is the time when you know a father really treasures his son because every father at the end of the day wishes that his son must look after him. For example, in the Father has a business he wishes that the son should should take up after him and take the business and run the business look after him look after his family. This is every father's wish. You see I mean, we are created with

00:29:33--> 00:29:59

this natural element of jealousy, which is not good we have to contain it. We have to contain it but we are human beings and we are created with this natural element of jealousy. We are trying to look at others and we feel these feelings of jealousy. But have you ever seen a father ever jealous of his son, every father on the face of this earth wishes what for his son that his son should become better than he

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

You should become better than him if he does not wish so he is not a father. He is not a father. Every father wishes the best for his child for his son. So likewise Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam wish the very best for his son and this was the timeless treasure in his son.

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

When the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala comes down. It was an immense test. Allahu Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about it in the Noble Quran. phenom Bella Varma who Surya Paula,

00:30:32--> 00:30:33

nee,

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

nee

00:30:38--> 00:31:07

Ma. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, he sees a dream. He sees a dream as the dreams of the NBA. So that was a true the revelation from Allah Subhana Medina, and like our dreams, we see all kinds of things. But the umbilical salatu salam then reads a revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. What does he see? He sees that he is sacrificing his slaughtering his son,

00:31:08--> 00:31:17

his beloved Son, so he goes to his son now, and it tells the Buddha made his son, my beloved son in the film.

00:31:19--> 00:31:24

I saw a dream in which I was slaughtering you, I was sacrificing you.

00:31:26--> 00:31:50

What do you think of this dream? Now look at the reply. Look at the incline of this boy love. He did not say that. Are you crazy? You're trying to slaughter me? I mean, this is what we would say today, the youngsters of today, they will look at it as something wrong with you. Should I report you to the authorities? You're abusing me. But look at the decline of Islam.

00:31:52--> 00:31:53

But as he said,

00:31:58--> 00:32:00

strategy duni.

00:32:03--> 00:32:06

Long Amina saw D.

00:32:08--> 00:32:10

Oh, my dear father, if I

00:32:11--> 00:32:27

do that which you have been commanded by a boss behind him was it because he was an intelligent boy. He knew that the dreams of his father were not just mere dreams. They were revelation from Allah was a command from Allah subhanho wa Taala. He calmly replies

00:32:29--> 00:32:36

to what you have been commanded, and he did not stop there. What does he say? certegy duni

00:32:37--> 00:32:54

la gumina soggetti. He did not say oh, you know, he did not start to grumble. He did not complain. And there's a lot to do we are profit. So we have to go ahead with this. So go on go and sacrifice me now. He said Go ahead, dear father. So thank you, Tony insha Allah,

00:32:55--> 00:32:59

by Allah you will find me from those who are patient.

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

He reassures his father. He tells his father, go ahead, don't worry about me. You will find me a patient person. Go ahead.

00:33:09--> 00:33:34

Look at the beautiful reply. So what happens now? Ibrahim alayhi salaatu wa Salaam he has to comply, he has to abide by the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He takes his beloved son in the story is easy to relate unto you. But you have to put yourself in the shoes of Mrs. Robertson. Just imagine if you were commanded to slaughter your son, your firstborn, your eldest son, how would you feel? How would you feel?

00:33:36--> 00:34:19

If you see, as we go on to the story, you will understand that Allah has more data at the end of the day. What was made to be sacrificed was a ram was a sheep from Jenna, but just say hypothetically, if it was part of the Sharia, and if Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam had to really sacrifice his son, and we what do we do when the season of Hajj comes, we slaughter animals, but if Allah decree that his daughter, his son, what would we have to do? Every heart we would have to slaughter? Our firstborn. And just imagine how much of you know grief we would be in and how difficult that would be for us. Just put yourself in the shoes of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, but he did not bat an

00:34:19--> 00:34:32

eyelid. Remember, it was not like he was blessed with a son at a very young age at a very old and frail age. He was blessed with a young boy son, and now he's been commanded by Allah slaughter.

00:34:33--> 00:34:53

Sacrificing and he did not hesitate Ignacio Allah, Ya Allah my little son, let me spend a little more time with him. He will not complain he used to do you see any is mentioning look at the reply of the sun. Go ahead, dad. Go ahead, father. You will find me from those who are patient.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. He takes his son Santi and he goes now to fulfill

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

The command on the last panel he takes the knife just like we take a knife when we are about to slaughter the animal during the season and he sharpens the knife, just like we sharpen the knife. He sharpens the knife, and then he goes by his son. And you know what is my

00:35:18--> 00:35:20

size now? Father

00:35:21--> 00:35:30

laid me on the ground, facing downwards, lay me on the ground, facing downwards. It brought me back to Sarah. He asked

00:35:31--> 00:36:17

me, Why are you telling me to do this? That is by Alex Becker's when he says, No father, if you leave me with my face facing upwards, you will have to look at my face when slaughtering me and that might result in your father the emotions gripping you and you will find it difficult it will be very emotional, you will find it difficult to go ahead with the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So lay me facing downwards so that that fatherly mercy will not overtake you and so that you will be able to fulfill the command of us behind the look and the beauty of this incident. abohar look at the obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala Where on earth are we in comparison, the last for Hannah

00:36:17--> 00:36:30

Montana commandos to store our sons. We are commanded to do what pray five times a day, give out years ago, first the month of Ramadan simple commandments in comparison to these great commandments of law.

00:36:31--> 00:36:42

Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam lays his father down and he lays his mind down and he takes the knife and places it on the neck of his son

00:36:43--> 00:37:14

and he tries to cut he tries to cut the knife does not cut. He tries to cut again the knife does not cut just imagine the knife is on the neck. The knife is on the neck and he is moving it back and forth. The knife is not cutting his marine. He cannot see what's happening. He's looking down because he says father go on. Cut it harder. Look, he is trying. He's trying but the knife is not cutting. The knife is not cutting. And that's when Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam

00:37:15--> 00:37:18

he hears a voice one day

00:37:20--> 00:37:22

about all he

00:37:25--> 00:37:29

can do looks who's calling me further south dakota. Oh,

00:37:31--> 00:37:36

you have fulfilled the dream you have fulfilled your vision in

00:37:39--> 00:38:27

masini and verily we reward them obviously known we reward the ones who do good. So he had fulfilled the dream. In other words, Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam and his marine for them as Lama tala hula jabeen when they abide by the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Both of them passed this test of a loss of 101 xyla. with flying colors love flying colors. They passed the test of Allah Subhana Hosanna and Allah azza wa jal, he sends down a lamp made sheep from the heavens color for him. Allah mentioned that this sheep was grazing in the meadows of gentlemen in the gardens of Paradise. And this ship was sent down to Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, and he was commanded to sacrifice the sheep,

00:38:27--> 00:38:35

the Lamb in place of his morality, so that was the lamb to which he did Allah subhanho wa Taala states in other language.

00:38:36--> 00:38:44

I am not saying that it is a it was a great test. Those scholars said that it was a great test Allah azza wa jal he states in

00:38:45--> 00:39:31

our movie, were really it was a manifest it was a great trial in the Hagia that will Bella movie, Allah subhana wa Taala will put Ibrahim al Islam through the desk. He is affirming, indeed, it was a great test upon Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah subhana wa tada here the woods Ibrahim alayhi salaatu wa Salaam so much to the extent moneylenders and sisters in Islam until today, and until the day of the AMA, the followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the rate that was lovely commemorate this test to be blind knowledge that was that by doing what? Every season of height, we sacrifice animals to commemorate the sacrifice of our father, Ibrahim alayhi

00:39:31--> 00:39:32

salatu salam.

00:39:33--> 00:39:59

Now a few days passed by Ibrahim alayhi salatu was now Moses was with his wife, Sarah, were in Palestine now. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam in general was an individual known for his hospitality and generosity. Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam. He was known for his hospitality and generosity. So one day he received some guests, some guests come home, and in generally prior knowledge that was used to be such a generous

00:40:00--> 00:40:47

person that he used to feed people a lot. he could. He had the habit that he could never eat alone. He could never eat alone. He had to invite someone over and he had to eat with someone. This was his habit. He was such a generous individual. So it was behind him what Allah talks about these guests, and attacca Heidi, Eva on email mo crummey. has the story. being told to you has the story reached you of the of the honored guests. There were no better guests who visited Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam. Now who were these noble guests. They were deeply meet Mecca in and this Rafi AlLahi wa Salatu was salam, three special angels, the most special angels of Allah subhanho wa sallam gibreel

00:40:47--> 00:41:04

Mika in that is Ravi AlLahi wa Salatu was Salam. They were the three guests who came to visit apply knowledge that was hidden in the guise of human beings. They do not come in the form of angels. They came in the guise of human beings. Is the funny ya know, Santa man.

00:41:09--> 00:41:27

When they came to Malaysia to Islam, they said, salam, Salam Alaikum Peace be upon you. Then he replies Carla Solomon como Tarun he said, peace be unto us when you are strangers. I don't know you. Who are you all. He asked them, who are you.

00:41:29--> 00:42:09

And after welcoming them. And after all, the pleasantries had been exchanged for all the inner athlete who didn't mean he turned to his household, in other words, his family, and he brought out region in semi roasted calf, or roasted calf calf is that every one of the cow roasted, cow roasted calf, he brings it and serves into these guests. And as you all know, the angels do they eat, they don't eat. Angels don't eat, they don't eat, they don't drink. They are provision. Their sustenance is the liquor of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when he put forward the food,

00:42:11--> 00:42:50

they did not even touch a tiny piece. Now he brought him on, he was feeling very strange. Just imagine if someone comes to your house, and you're being very generous to them, and you lay out a banquet. And if the individual does not touch, anything from your table will feel Why are you not eating? I mean, is there some problem between us, right? So Ibrahim Ali, in those days, especially when travelers used to come from afar, they used to be rebellious needs to be very hungry. And when you leave food, they would punish the dish, because they used to come from above, there'll be very hungry, and he lays out a roasted calf, a tasty meal, and they're not touching the foot. So he asked

00:42:50--> 00:42:50

them

00:42:53--> 00:43:11

why aren't you not eating? Will you not eat from the food that I have put forward to which they then went on to inform Ibrahim allege that was not because they saw the you know, the fear in a blind alleys that was locked eyes. They said yeah, he brought him we're not just an ordinary guests.

00:43:12--> 00:43:18

We are angels that have been sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala. We are angels who have been sent by a bus.

00:43:20--> 00:44:07

And they go on to say that, oh, Ibrahim, we bring glad tidings. We bring glad tidings to you that you and your wife Salalah alayhi salatu salam are going to be blessed with a child with a baby boy, Masada so that was ram This was you know, this took her you know, this gave her a huge shock because she was so old. And so was Ibrahim Ali is that was set up. So she says, you know, she kind of like, you know, she couldn't believe it. So she says, we are going to get a child, this old age to which the angels replying despite the will of Allah and Allah can do whatever he wills and then they go on to state that they had come from a completely different purpose, but they will also commanded to go

00:44:07--> 00:44:54

and give glad tidings. Now what was the purpose that they had come down for? Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam asked them, follow him on Facebook. Can you help us alone? What purpose Then have you come for all messengers? they reply callooh in sinner in our home in Missouri mean they said we have been sent by a law to a people who are removed who are criminals who are sinners who are transgressors, linoone sera, la hija. De midrin to send down to rain upon them stones of baked clay. This was a punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They had come down to render the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala to destroy that nation now which nation was this? This was the nation of the Prophet alayhi

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

salatu salam this was the nation of the Prophet Lord, Allah Islam Islamic history, we will discuss it

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

In a day or two inshallah Thailand perhaps tomorrow if we can if we conclude the story of Ibrahim alayhis salaam. Nevertheless, the angels had come down for that purpose, but along the way, they were instructed to give glad tidings and to a large family history.

00:45:14--> 00:45:15

Nowadays pass

00:45:17--> 00:45:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses the blind alleys That was lovely the sun just as he was informed, and this boy his name was his heart. And now he brought him to Islam leaves his heart and sobre la casa de la Mossad was like Palestine, and he had to visit harder and smarter. Allah Himself to Salaam in Mecca, he had now divided his time by us to spend time in Palestine as well as in Makkah he used to spend equal time with both his wives, both his families. So now when he goes to visit his married Elisa to Salaam in Makkah, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands him and informs him of something. This is the next command. The command was or Ibrahim build a house of Allah for his

00:45:59--> 00:46:21

worship, build a house of Allah for his worship, and this house was to be known as the Kaaba. This house was to be known as the cabinet. This was the first house of Allah, the first baseman wields in law to be built or lost behind him or Dad, I mentioned this in the novel of a man in a bay to the

00:46:23--> 00:46:25

de la la de Baca.

00:46:28--> 00:46:55

Nina and me were really the first house of worship appointed for mankind was that at Dhaka. Dhaka was the previous name for Makkah. Baca later on became the first house to be placed for the worship of Allah subhana wa Jalla was at Dhaka, Mubarak and Buddha Buddha did it I mean, it was full of blessing and guidance for Ireland in the mankind and the jinn came

00:46:56--> 00:46:57

so

00:46:58--> 00:47:14

now what happens Ibrahim Allah is that was informed his son is married and his dad was now about the commander of a lost behind him was the Allah they both get together and they start constructing this house of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah azza wa jal mentions what EDR Pharaoh Ebola he

00:47:16--> 00:47:18

is in

00:47:20--> 00:48:05

Berlin, in a semi alley. Remember when Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam and his son his smile was raising the foundations of the house the Kaaba at Makkah. They kept saying, out of Bonanza, Ballina, God, Oh our Lord accept this from us accept this from us. Verily You are the oil here are the oil Nova video brothers and sisters in established, they have been commanded by Allah subhanho wa Taala, to build a house of Allah and they are building the house and throughout the construction, they keep praying to a lot of Bonanza Bonanza. Another beautiful lesson to be derived from this particular juncture is that whatever you do, you can be involved in a huge project, a small project you can be you know,

00:48:05--> 00:48:32

involved in Tao organizations, charity organizations, you can be involved with the massages of Allah, you can be involved in any good deed but remember you must strive for Islam, that you do it solely for the pleasure of Allah and you must also always pray to Allah, Allah accept this from us accept this from us, we can be involved in so many projects, look the MPR the two great prophets, they themselves are praying to Allah, Allah accept this from us accept this from us. And what about you and I, you know, our projects

00:48:33--> 00:48:41

fade away in comparison to this great project. They were building the first mastered the first house of Allah and they kept praying a bonanza.

00:48:43--> 00:49:21

So likewise, you and I, whatever we do good deeds. We do it solely for the pleasure of Allah and we keep praying to Allah, Allah accept it from us accept it from us, may Allah subhana wa Taala accept all the goodies that we ran down to him, I mean, so they go on building until the last tone had to be placed the last one, you have to understand that the Kaaba was not as grand as how it is today. You didn't have the clock tower, you didn't have all of that. It was a crude building at that time, made of blocks of stone. It was a very simple house of Allah at that time. So they just placed stones and they build the house. But there was one last stone that had to be placed in marriage that

00:49:21--> 00:49:54

was that instructs his son is mine to get that final stone. It's my knowledge not to stand on who's around searching for that final stone because the final stone had to be in a specific shape to fit that place. So he kept looking around for the stone and he drifted a little further away from his father and construction. That's when debris dallisa to slam comes down. And he asks his mind that is that it's not that you're looking for a spiderlings that was lapses are looking for the final stone to complete the construction of the house of Allah jabril is about to snap that gives him a stone,

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

a stone and he tells him this stone is from Jenna

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

from Paradise go and complete the construction within scholars with a mobile dimension, that there are two opinions. One is the Jabez that was one foot above the stone at that point at that point, or, like I mentioned the story of Adam alleys that was lambda is one opinion of the scholars that are demolished to Islam and he came down from gender. He was sent with a stone, and this stone was lost. And at that point, it was recovered. At that point, it was recovered, and it was pure white in color. It was milky white, pure white in color, and it was placed in the building and that is the stone known as hydrolysis. Well today, what is hydro as well, the Blackstone, so how come it was

00:50:40--> 00:51:13

pure white scholars like a normal dimension, it was pure white, and it turned black due to the sins of people due to the sins of people. It turned black, it was pure white in color at that time. So the construction of the house of Allah was now complete. Eliza Virgil commands Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam to proclaim and call out to call out to announce Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam he asks Allah, Allah What am I to proclaim? What am I to call out? Eliza Jurgen informs him

00:51:15--> 00:51:19

00:51:30--> 00:52:15

Oh Ibrahim proclaim to finast proclaim to the entire mankind about hype about the pilgrimage of Allah yet to courage Allah they will come to you on foot they will come to you they will come walking while actually Dhamma and they will come on every lean camel and horse yeah Tina mean Khalifa genomic and they will come from every deep and distant Valley, distant mountain they will come from all over the place for hike. Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam was amazed he asked Allah, Allah, how am I to get the message across to the entire mankind whilst I am here in Makkah today.

00:52:17--> 00:52:33

You know, if you put up a Facebook status, at least you have the confidence that it can reach people all around the world, depending on the amount of followers that you have. Or perhaps if you put it up on a platform where it will reach out to many people around the world. At that time, Ibrahima is that was that was wondering?

00:52:35--> 00:53:19

How will the message go to the entire mankind now who gave man the intellect to come up with all these online platforms? The World Wide Web? Who gave man the intellect? Did man come up with all of this by himself? It was Allah who gave man the intellect to come up with all these satellites the internet the World Wide Web all these social media platforms because Allah who gave man the brain, Allah subhanho wa Taala informs it right Ibrahim that was around yeah Ibrahim Your duty is to do it. And we will look after the conveying part we will make the message reach every human being so Ibrahim Ali is not does not declines a little hill a little mountain and he proclaimed Yeah.

00:53:20--> 00:54:07

All Mankind come to the house of Allah on Hajj pilgrimage come to come and visit the house of Allah and pilgrimage but the brothers and sisters in Islam with this will conclude inshallah tada in the long line in Houma. He states that a lost hand and words island to bomb the responsibility of conveying that message. So much to the extent that at the point, Ibrahim Ali announced it at that point, every single human being, every single creation, the heavens and the earth, heard the proclamation of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam heard the announcement of Ibrahim alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. And not only that every single child in the womb of his mother heard this announcement of

00:54:07--> 00:54:13

the primaries that were set up every drop of fluid that man is created from

00:54:14--> 00:54:59

the announcement of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, and it does not end there. It goes on until the day of the AMA, and this two hour was answered as well. And this is why people from all over the world today, whenever you tune into the MCI live channel, what do you see? I'm sure most of you have access to it in your country. But do you see people making the watch of the car? Are they all from one locality? Are they all Arabs? Now you have Malaysia and Indonesia Maldivian Sri Lankans, Indians, Americans, you have people from all over the world. Yeah, john, I mean, cool effect gentlemen. They will come from far and near. They will come from me

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

Where? Dona Jalla wa ala Kulli dama they will come on foot they will come using different modes of conveyance and they will come from all over your job is to proclaim and we will see that the message is conveyed above and even above so the alarm goes on to state that until the day of tiama This will be the case look at monka they keep expanding and they they keep on expanding for what purpose to cater more and more because the crowds are so huge and number so many people visiting every single year 365 days around the year. The city that never sleeps, that is the city that never sleeps.

00:55:40--> 00:55:51

So many people coming from all over the world because Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted the DA accepted the sacrifice of this great Prophet Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam, O.

00:55:52--> 00:56:06

Allah azza wa jal decree was that the call of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam would reverberate throughout the annals of time and the people would come from far and near to respond to the call. They all had to mock us and what lab Baga la

This was the announcement that Allah Subhana Allah commanded Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam to make and he did so obey Allah azza wa jal with that we conclude today's session in sha Allah, Allah Allah tomorrow we have a few more incidents to talk about Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, and then quickly we move on to a little about his harkens back to Islam and then we go on with the series in sha Allah Allah.
