Episode Notes

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into an explicit explanation of the Ayats 122 – 124 of Surah Al Baqarah.

One of the first things we learn about Bani Israel is that when they were tested with trials and tribulations of the highest degree, they constantly failed those tests. Another thing of interest is the attitude that they possessed believing that Allah had given them preference but Allah reminds them that even worse trials were afflicted on those before them. What was the honor Allah bestowed on Ibrahim AS? Allah made him the universal leader – the Imam over all humanity.

Ibrahim AS is the father of both the Arabs and the Non-Arabs – Ismael AS and Ishaq AS. 

Numerous lessons can be imbibed from this lecture.

  • We should look at the blessings that Allah SWT has given us and not envy others. 
  • We should be pleased and content with what others have been blessed, but should never pray for their blessings to be snatched.
  • We should also never lose focus of the Final Day – the Day of Judgment – the Day when man’s only concern will be his own salvation, so much so that parents will leave their children, and spouses and siblings will not worry about one another.
