Nouman Ali Khan – Surat Al-Baqarah – Part 48

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into Ayat number 125 of the magnificent Surah Al Baqarah.

‘And [mention] when We made the House a place of return for the people and [a place of] security. And take, [O believers], from the standing place of Abraham a place of prayer. And We charged Abraham and Ishmael, [saying], “Purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who are staying [there] for worship and those who bow and prostrate [in prayer].”

So hints are dropped first and then the entire matter is elaborated upon in the Ayats of the Qur’an so that one is duly prepared for it.

Allah now reminds us of what He commanded Ibrahim AS. When the Qiblah was made to mean a place that is peaceful and safe. The preservation of the future generation will have a lot to do with the House of Allah – the Ka’bah. Also mentioned is the critical role of the Masajids in raising our children and giving them a sound upbringing. The deeper wisdom of hajj is also elaborated upon.
