Santa Monica Moroccan climate accord so the red is and sisters Welcome back to people of color on where every night I share with you a story about how one of our pious predecessors interacted with an eye of the poor. And so this is a really interesting story because it starts off with a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about one of the companions and then that companion being asked about it, we get down to just 14 and we find that Allah subhanaw taala says in the suit on certain last panel terraces in Ibrahim Akan Alma, verily, Ibrahim alayhis salam was a nation he was an oma in and of himself, Connie 10 de la hanifin What am the acumen and mushrikeen and he was
devoutly obedient to what loss of handling to Allah always inclined towards the truth. And he was not amongst those who associate partners with a loss of Hannah Montana. You know, one of the first tapes cassette tapes, I heard that that really got me into Islam was a tape by Raj Raj from the 1980s, where the title of the holtville was very early. Abraham was an oma, he was a nation. And somehow that's a very interesting idea. What is the last panel to add? I mean, when he says Ibrahim was an omen, because about him, you know, it could mean multiple things. Ibrahim is the father of the Abrahamic faiths. Ibrahim is known as the father of many Islam and and he's the father of Benny
is married. So, you know, all of these profits come from his lineage, and these huge almost come from his lineage. So it could mean that or it could mean something else. And the reason why it most likely means something else is that there's a narration from the Prophet spice number. He says in the love and mercy route on that of the love and mercy rule of the law of time who is an oma and we don't know of any lineage from our beloved animus rule or the law that survived. So it means something different. So this narration is from one of the students of oven Mr. Udo the longtime animal whose name is about to update, and he came down to London Mr. Little d a long time. And he
said to him, you know that lameness? Either lameness? I like that there's a question that I have. And I wouldn't ask anyone other than you, meaning you're the only person I feel comfortably. Or I feel comfortable about asking this question. So I'm loving the Mr. Trudeau the Allahu tada and who said, go ahead and ask. He said, Bernie and oma, tell me what the oma is. What does it mean when Allah says Ibrahim was an owner, and he was hinting to him and was rude when the Prophet sly slim said that even Mr. Trudeau, the Lakota and who was an oma and even Mr. Udo, the longtime fan who responded and you can see the humility of this companion, he says in no more than can ohmmeter
polytune de la hanifa. He said more either new Java or the low tide and who was an oma and he was called eternal Illa he was someone that was devoutly obedient to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, what am your community mushrikeen and he was a monotheist, and he did not associate partners with the loss of Hannah Montana. So once again, he says good to see nuptse volatile, man. He said, I said to myself, you know, you're making a mistake. Oh, man, I mean, a losses in color. Long term, Ibrahima candle mecanim. Allah says that Ibrahim was an honor. So how can you say that more ad was an omen he was fine. He turned the land so on so forth. So even Mr. Trudeau, the law tada and who said to him,
I tend to be Muslim woman on earth. Do you know who a nation is? And who the Carnot is the one who stands in obedience to Allah is so I said, Allahu, Allahu, Allahu Allah, Allah and His Messenger know best. So he said Aloma to Lady. You are only Manasa Hi. He said that the oma is the one that teaches people to do good. Well, Connie to Admiralty, early law University and the one who is obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala, or the one who's devout is the one who, who is always obedient to Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what can the Allah canon wider than wildeman higher what can and will clear and Allahu Allah su de and more as was someone that used to teach
people to do good and he used to obey Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, what's the point of all of this? And what does that exactly mean? Essentially a loss of Hannah hoods Allah is saying that Ibrahim alayhis salaam was a nation in the sense of productivity, what Ibrahim Ali Salaam was able to achieve what he was able to guide people to the good that he was able to inspire. And those around him made him like an oma all by himself. He was a nation all by himself. And the prophets lie cinema saying this man had been missing a lot of time who, what he was able to achieve or what he would achieve even after the death of the Prophet slice Allah was more than an
entire nation would achieve the amount of people that have been taught and taught and taught Hadeeth and the amount of people that he guided towards good character and good manners was more than what an entire nation would be able to achieve. And even Mr. Trudeau the alongside Andrew says, and why on earth all the time and who was a nation as well. He was an oma as well and he was gone eaten in LA he was someone that stands the devoutly in front of his Lord subhanho wa Taala. And essentially what that does is it gives us an opportunity as well to measure
ourselves and think, Hey, could we reached that level as well? Where the amount of good that we put forth is greater than a group of people greater than an entire nation? Are we capable of that? And the hope that we take from the Hadith of the prophets lie some of us in this room. And when even Massoud said about Maura is that anyone can achieve that in sha Allah to add a wi Ll high cafe at the one who guides to good is like the one who does good. So think about what you inspire. And people think about what you're guiding people to and think about how productive you want to be. And don't say to yourself, you just want to stand in front of Allah Subhana Allah as someone that prayed
and did you know prayed a lot and faster a lot and so on so forth. But rather someone that inspired his family inspired his community and inspired the people around him so that he or she was like an entire nation. We asked a loss of Hannah Montana, to raise us and the marvelous little loss of Allah Hardy was to them and to raise us as well as people that achieved what nations could not achieve. And we ask a lot to accept from us alone. I mean, Zack will know hey, Don, for tuning in. I'll see you all tomorrow in sha Allah for people of color and was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
