Makkah & the Family of the Prophet Ibrahim – Part 1/5
The position in Islam of the Prophet Ibrahim and his family in Islam is the main subject of this first lesson. Why is such importance attached to them? Who was the Prophet Ibrahim and where was he from?
This lesson will highlight why we need to study this inspiring family that changed the course of mankind.
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
as has been announced in
the study of

I relate with a continuous and uninterrupted chain from me to Mr. mahadi rahimullah relates from who says Abdullah Mohammed related to me
related to herbs that Merriman informed us from a Ubisoft the army and from Cathedral Nova each of them adding more than the other from say, either in the debate who said, I'm delighted my birth or the alarm set and thereafter the headers begins. That was the senate the chain of transmission from the man behind the law, tell him out till so you don't have to like my boss or the alarm, cousin brother have a sort of loss and the law it was something
he then relates the formalities.
Now it's a very, it's a fairly long
and couple of pages.
And the topics covered are mainly about the
immigration of Stephen Abraham and as well the travel of Stephen Ebrahim. It has to do with his wife in one of the Align her and their son is not so smart he
even Salaam from the land of residence in
in modern day Palestine to muckety muck up there. The Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam left his wife and child and
they remain behind. They inhabited the area they were joined by a very large while they were joined by the famous tribe of gentlemen later, eventually, the whole area became accessible inhabited settlement. And then see the main smart leader this man grew up he had further income
With his father, and eventually the end of the Hadees speaks about the building of the Ganga joins the by the prophets of Salaam and his son, Ibrahim it is.
Now before we actually begin the Hadees, I'd like to give a brief introduction
on two things, one, the
significance of studying this particular study.
And number two,
the position of say the mount Ebrahim at his salon, and that's of his family in Islam. Both points are actually related.
Let me first speak about the position of seeing them at Ebrahim and I won't be able to encompass all of his virtues in this one session and noise that the intended purpose, but just to shed some light on
why he matters, and why this particular leave is important, and why he has such a prominent position in Islam.
At the beginning, I recited the verse of the
in which Allah commands is
that all believers,
you also send Salutations, and greetings to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in response,
both you and I read
Southern Salaam, and the most famous solid Ansel is what we call the sellout of the prophets and the love it was eliminated by him at a salon. The salon salon which has resulted in the shack with Uppsala, and the words are loving recently Adam Houma diwata Adam Hammad, camasta later Allah Ibrahim Ali Ibrahim Majeed, and it continues. So in this prayer in this salutation in greeting, to the messenger, some of the love and equal some of them the most authentic one, the most famous one, the one which is actually included in our daily five times salon any other salon we made before.
We notice that
two prophets names are mentioned.
The purpose is to send greetings and salutations to the messengers to love it.
And yet in that salutation, the name of the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam mismatch
and that's unique in our Salah in the slaughter of every single Muslim
For every person who recites this Allah and Salaam in that the Shabbos Allah, the name of the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam alongside that of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as mentioned.
Furthermore, in the Holy Quran,
Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah mentions
see them at Brahim at in Salaam
in approximately 60 verse throughout the poor and different students.
And when we look at the details of his mention in both of these and the virtues associated with him, we learn that after the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the mightiest and the leading prophets of all of the messengers.
So his position is second only to the prophets of Allah.
We are now in the month of chawan.
And this is the first of the three months of hatch. Allah subhanho wa Taala sees a shorter man on
the Hajj is a period of gnome.
So the minutes of her even though the rites and the rituals of hedge are performed over five specific days, the season of hedge the preparation for her
the validity of entering and consecrating oneself into the sacred states of a home for
that period is not restricted for the to the five days rather
It begins with shall well.
And the whole season of Hajj, the period of Hajj, the period for the validity of the harem of Hajj begins with Sha one we are now in it. These are the three almost three months of the of Hajj Chava.
I mentioned this because
again, it's something else which is unique about the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam and that's of his family.
And in fact, not only is he mentioned the his family his art is mentioned in the the shack would start out and sit down and the meaning is Allah sent prayers to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and to the family of the prophets of the law it was
just as you sent your
peace, your blessings, your salutations and greetings and your favors to the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam and to his family.
And then the second part says Allah bless the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his family just as you blessed the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam and his family.
in the season of Hajj, there is another remind In fact, there are a couple of reminders of the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam.
When a person makes the intention
for performing the pilgrimage and traveling to hatch
he or she is actually responding to the call of see them at Brahim at a
Allah azza wa jal Saison or an infant Naseby?
Yeah tokkuri Giada wa vomitting yaquina, Minh Khalifa Jr, in
that and then, after he had completed the renovation and the building of the gather,
Lodge and structured announce amongst the people
announced the hatch,
they will come to you on thoughts
on every lean camel,
which shall arrive from every deep ravine
and this depicts the convergence of large numbers of people from all corners of the world, upon the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the holy city of Mecca, especially in the season,
it's a sight to behold,
there were there was not a single drop of water or a blade of grass
the barren Valley and now we witness the spectacle for ourselves.
See the mighty Rahim Allah
responded to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah with the question of Allah who will hear
how will they respond.
And as I've mentioned before this has been narrated from some of us have battled the alarm. And undoubtedly, they would not have related such a story or such details of their own accord without having to hurt something to this effect from a sort of loss and aligning himself.
And what they relate is that when Allah instructed him to announce the hatch,
and that people will respond by arriving, as I've just translated from the verse of the Quran, Ibrahim alayhis salam said Allah, how will they hear me there is no one here to listen, there is no one to hear. So the Prophet Allah subhanho wa Taala told him that and then
it is my duty to convey this to the people. Your job is turnouts. And when he did announce,
the mountains reverberated with this call. And every soul that was destined
to visit the house have a last panel with that I responded with the words of the baby.
So when people make this intention for hatch, they are responding to the ancient call of see them around him and he has to travel to that house, which he and his son built to that city, which was first inhabited by his wife and son is married early so that they will drink of that well,
which sprang forth for the sake of that
Babies, my elderly.
They will perform tawaf around that garden, which was built jointly by father and son. They will run between the two hills of suffering miroir, performing side, reenacting
the desperate, search for water, buy on a hard drive of the line, they will help the jamara as a reenactment of the actions of this family, and they on the day of sacrifices,
then, and billions all over the world, we'll take part in the ritual of overhear the sacrifice or burning
and sacrificing the slaughter an animal, again as a reenactment of the attempted sacrifice or save them at Ebrahim alayhis salam, and then the eventual slaughter of the RAM, and that act of total submission by the Father and the Son is around him in
many of the rites and rituals of Hajj, the location, the building, the well of Zamzam, the Baraka, the blessings, the fruits that people enjoy of the holy city. These are all the blessings and the Baraka that I've seen them Ebrahim alayhis salam, and the fulfillment of his door and the acceptance of Allah, by Allah of his door, and the response of the world to his call of hedge.
And even out of the season of hedge every single day, when we pray,
we face the garba the house of Allah,
and who built that, who was commanded to build it?
It's the most noble building on Earth.
It was the best building projects ever.
commissioned by Allah, contracted by Djibouti,
built by Ibrahim, and assisted by his apprentice is married. And even more so than that was the gamma. That's the building which we face in every single summer.
That's a Qibla of the Muslims.
All of this hij Sara,

the blessings and the Baraka and the abundant produce and fruits available in the city of Makkah, during all seasons, and not just now in the days of global trade and transportation. But even centuries before people would marvel at the availability of produce and fruit in the barren valley of when it wasn't available anywhere else, even in the coastal regions, even in the licious parts of the surrounding regions, but it was available in the city of Mecca. All of these buckets and these blessings and this availability of produce from fruits is related to see them only by him.
So here's is a great position, the Great's of profits after the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sent them
Islam accord such importance to him? Why is he mentioned with such favor in the Holy Quran?
Today the extent that we as an EMA have been commanded to follow in the footsteps of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he himself in the Koran has been commanded to follow in the footsteps of the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam and His Prophet children. For behold our homework today, Allah says and follow in their footsteps.
inshallah, we'll continue with more of this introduction after the eclipse Allah which we will pray now will give a
continuing with the
Hadees from before solar, I was giving an introduction to the significance of this.
And the position of say that Abraham had is
In fact, not just the gamma and mcca and Zamzam
and the rites and rituals of hedge
but even the presence of this
is an answer to the democracy the libre
the coming over sort of loss of the love it
was an answer to the mouth of Satan, Ibrahim Ali
and he was on the occasion of the completion of the camera, which is what this ultimately leads to
that he made this and Allah mentions it with the authority Brahim will cover in the middle
of the night in the
pub and the main Allah come in coming to Vietnam.
Second Avenue Ballina,
robina Baba, I see him Rasulullah Minh, who you
take away and the Mahabharata is key.
I'll just quickly translate or paraphrase the meaning of these three, four verses. Allah says, and when Ibrahim and his Mary, were raising the foundations of the house of the gamma.
They will pray
Our Lord accepts from us.
And then the act continues and includes teachers our rights, ie and rituals of prayer, I'm observing you of forming the pilgrimage.
And then the final part of the dryers and our la rays amongst them, meaning makers make us Muslims.
Ibrahim is smarter than a Muslim both prayed that our law makers Muslims,
which are Muslim men and
women will return our motto Muslim,
make as Muslims, for you, and from our children from our progeny,
raise and create a whole Muslim for
and the meaning of make us Muslim, make our children Muslim make our future generations Muslim and raise from a Muslim ummah. The meaning of Muslim in this whole context is not what we think it is just the term Muslim
Islam. Muslim comes from Islam and Islam means submission.
Commonly It's said that Islam is peace.
Of course it means peace, but not linguistic. not technically.
Islam stands for peace, yes, but the term Islam is not the translation is not peace. It means submission.
And when Ibrahim is smarter either lay him Salaam prayed to Allah, Allah make as Muslim.
They were referring to just the labor.
nor were they saying that our lawmakers peaceful they were peaceful.
the meaning is showing us how to submit totally to
give us the ability that they'll feel to submit to
Ibrahim alayhis salam said a lot make me a Muslim. It's my evil Islam said make me a Muslim. I want to submit to you and raise from our children and Mama which will submit to me
and that's why Allah says again military of equal Ibrahim hos America muslimeen
This is the way the religion of your father, Ibrahim, it is he who called you named you Muslims.
And what does that mean? named you Muslims after himself and in his do that just as he prayed that Allah made me want to submit to you it's Marina Lee has Salam said made me one submit to you. And both prayed that from our children, raise a generation raised and people who will submit to you.
And this is why the term Islam and Muslims, those who submit even apparent submission is Islam. Just as a last phase of those better than who said other than Allah.
Allah taught me what I can do, what am I calling him and
the better we can claim that we have become Muslim, Satan,
or messenger of Allah, that certainly they said we have become mcminn we have become believers. We have believed. So Allah commanded the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to tell them, not me nor say to them you have not believed rather than
Have yourselves a slim none we have submitted
and he man has not yet entered your heart. So even apparent submission leads to the title of Islam and Muslim. So the reason I've emphasized on this point of Islam and Muslim is that was mentioning that the presence of this room is a fulfillment of the duality that it Brahim it is and and that was the coming of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. wasallam, was the fulfillment of that there are because the last part of the DA is our la rays from them a messenger from from raised from amongst them a messenger, who will then recite to them the book of Allah, and the verse continues. So the coming of Rasool Allah Hassan was that was the fulfillment of the duality by
the rising of this room as a Muslim
with the title of Muslim was the naming of Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam and and was the fulfillment of his prayer and the prayer obviously, he is so much about us about our religion, about our rites and rituals about about our acts of worship. In fact, our very name, which is all connected to the single person of say, you the mighty Brahim.
Hmm, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was commanded to follow.
This is why he is a greatest human being, after a loss in the law, I think.
That's how about all the alarms are great. But nobody ranks them greater than that. And the and even the prophets of Allah, his messengers are the best, and the chosen ones of the whole of creation. And the leader of them all was a prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then second to him, was the Prophet Ibrahim as this is why
there's so much to learn of him, about him of his seal,
and to adopt from his life.
But the greatest lesson that he left, the greatest legacy of Ibrahim alayhis salam that he bequeathed
to those who came out
is Islam. Which means submission.
That was his greatest lesson.
His greatest sacrifice, and his submission and sacrifice. Were not for one day, why not for a single episode, we're not for one incident,
we will be coming up to the day of eat, which is known as a day of sacrifices evil.
As I mentioned earlier, everyone will we will all participate in the ritual of slaughtering an animal. And that's a reenactment of the story of his sacrifice and that of his son.
But that wasn't just the only sacrifice in his life. That was actually just one page of a whole book of sacrifices, his sacrifices began at a very young age.
And that leads me to the next point, which is that before we actually begin the Hadeeth, what were the incidents in his life that led to the beginning of what's mentioned in this heading?
And who exactly was he that
he was amazed the Messenger of Allah.
I won't go into the chronology or the or the history or the dates of the night, Abraham Lincoln said, and that's another topic in itself. But
approximately 2000 years ago, so you're gonna Ebrahim alayhis salam
ancient art in Mesopotamia, in the city of all, all itself actually meant the city. And it was in the Babylonian kingdom, ancient Mesopotamia.
All itself actually means that's why Jerusalem was originally or
shallow, or slum even now it's called Islam, which means that was Salaam, the city of peace. So all
originally just meant the city, the greatest city at that time in the Mesopotamian period was all and it was a huge Babylonian City. In fact, it wasn't you may sound simplistic and primitive, but they were quite advanced in maths and astronomy, in architecture and engineering and building. So see that he brought him and he said he didn't
Live in just a primitive, simplistic, simple environment
in which many of his fellow people were idolaters and would commit shut up and was so wavered.
Rather, despite their learning despite their civilization despite their advanced culture, despite their knowledge of maths, language, languages, of astronomy, of engineering, despite their architectural feats, despite their worldly and scientific progress, when it came to the spirits, when it came to Allah when it came to religion,
they were primitive.
And their understanding was very simplistic
and wayward. And they worshiped stars, the planetary bodies, and graven images, stone statues and adults, and save them Ebrahim earlier Sam would remonstrate with them, challenge them would advise them would invite them and he shun their worship and their waves. This inevitably invited the wrath and the enmity of his people and in fact his own family and first of all, his own father.
So say the
last town hall with Anna had granted him great wisdom and understanding as he did to all the prophets. I'd like to mention something here. Since the the mighty Brahim is known as the father of nations, and the patriarch of the monotheistic religions of Islam, Christianity and Judaism.
There is much said about him, there's a lot believed about him. And unfortunately, some of the suggestions are horrendous.
is that his wife, Sarah, or the alarm rang her
was actually his sister.
And that he was an incestuous marriage. Half Cistercian, so one belief is that some of the love and how was his half sister, and he lived his whole life in an incestuous marriage. The other common belief about seeing them around him is that he actually lived his life in idolatry.
And it was only much later at an advanced age, according to some suggestions at the age of 75, that he
was awakened, he became enlightened. And he realized the error of idolatry. And he explored monotheism, and that he discovered monotheism. He discovered though he
lost handle subhanho wa Taala answers that beautifully in more than one verse.
When I came in and was shaking in another verse, When I'm yokomen, and mushy king,
he was not of the polytheists of the pagans. The translation of both verses is the same, even though the wording in Arabic is different by cannabinol. shakin Why don't you come in and
say that it
was not of the polytheists. And that one single verse answers so many things as the arm often does, a single verse can be an answered so many questions.
One the pagans, the pagan Arabs have,
and religious ancestry, both from Salem Abraham.
And of course, they were the descendants of the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam, ethnically, but in terms of religion, they had abandoned the ways of their forefathers. And by claiming that this is the way of our forefathers, this is the religion of our forefathers, Ibrahim alayhis salam, what they actually suggested is that our idolatry our paganism, this is part of the religion of Ibrahim alayhis. Salam last panel to address verse answers that that
Ibrahim Alayhi Salam
he was hanifa he was an upright monotheist. He was not a polytheist he was not a pink. So he refutes the claim of the mushrikeen
mechanic Ibrahima Houdini
Amina machete. Ibrahim was neither a yahoodi or an Islamic.
rather he was an upright Muslim. And he was not of the idolaters who was not to the pagans.
And this verse not only answers the claim of the mushrikeen of Makkah, but you also answers this common belief that Ibrahim alayhis salam lived a life of idolatry, just like his fellow countrymen, just like his people, and that he only came to discover monotheism. And though he, after much soul searching, and after having lived a life of idolatry, and ship, and therefore, being the discoverer of the heed,
he is the founder of monotheism.
Ibrahim Ali Hassan was not the founder of monotheism, he didn't discover it. Ibrahim alayhis salam was always a more. It was always a Hani, he was always a Muslim, he was always a person of thought.
And this is perfectly explained them the verse of the Quran which Allah, Allah says, When Tina Ibrahim Agusta, whom
is already a bee, who
Mahabharata masala tea into the hierarchy whom
Allah says, And verily we had bestowed
guidance of hung Ebrahim of before.
And we were surely knowing of him meaning Allah subhanho wa Taala from before, knew the worth and the virtue of Ibrahim had ever
since he was chosen prophets, but even before and Allah granted him his knowledge, his wisdom, his guidance may have before it wasn't something which he discovered, he was born.
So, Rahim Allah He lived in. He grew up amongst his people, many of them worship
idols, graven images, stones, planetary bodies, and many different gods Ibrahim alayhis salam worshiped and called towards the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This led to a great conflict between him and his people and primarily his family. And first of all, his father, as a last age when he said to his father and his people, what are these statues that you are so devoted to?
There are many stories about Ibrahim alayhis salam, probably the most famous one which the Quran mentions is the one of him breaking the idols. And this conflict was a long running, and he eventually culminated in Ibrahim alayhis salaam, smashing their idols. And briefly what had happened is, they had a day of a great festival and annual festival celebration.
They invited him to come along, he
And in their absence, he went
and he took
an ounce which is implement similar to an X, and he smashed all the idols except the large one. And he then plays the ads, the tool similar to an X in the bosom or the cradle or the arms of the idol, and left and prior and similar to statues and
stone idols in many parts of the world. The on this day of fest on this great festival, much food had been laid out before the idols.
And in the verse of the Quran actually says that he spoke to them, he addressed them, and said, before he smashed them, he addressed them and said,
Why don't you eat? What's wrong with you? Why don't you speak? And then he smashed all of them, with the exception of the largest one. And then he placed the tool in his hands and left when the people returned, and they saw their smashed idols. They said, who has done this? The people said, we've always heard of this young man. See, for the year of you all know who Ibrahim, not someone who discovered monotheism in the 75th year of his age, rather someone who was enlightened of your from before. So we've heard of a young man who constantly mentioned these idols disparagingly. Ibrahim says, summon him and bring him before all the people. And in fact that was the purpose of saving
Abraham at his center, so that he could present his argument not to the
Family not to a few individuals, but rather to his whole to all the people on the occasion of their greatest festival and in the largest congregation. So when he was summoned and brought before them, they interrogated him. And they said, Did you smash these idols? And his reply was Belfast, Belfast who kabiru mhada for subdomain cambium. He said, No, I didn't. He didn't say no, he said, rather,
the largest one of these idols, he smashed all the others. So why don't you ask them if they speak?
They realize that, how can we ask them? They don't speak. Now, I'd like to say something here. This story may sound rather simplistic. And we may say, Well, this is all rather This is all childish, isn't it? Ibrahim, a young man smashing idols people coming and inspecting them demanding to know who had smashed the idols, Ibrahim alayhis salaam, blaming it on the largest idol. And then the people real and telling them ask the idols, you may all seem rather primitive and simplistic, but
there are great lessons in this one story alone. As I said, he wasn't resident in a village. He was resident in
the capital of Mesopotamia at the time,
a culture, a civilization steeped in science in learning and writing in languages, in maths in astronomy, a civilization of great architectural and engineering feats. The people were advanced culture.
And yet, despite all the learning,
and all the technology and science, when it came to matters of the spirits, when it came to their relationship with Allah, indeed, they were primitive.
And this is the
cognate, cognitive dissonance of man.
Were at one at one, and at the same time,
we are able to entertain and adhere to two strands of thoughts that are so contradictory.
On the one hand, we can be so intelligent in so many different things.
on the other, we can be so backward, so primitive.
That's exactly what they did then. And in many ways, this is what we didn't that should have never disappeared. idolatry has many forms. A graven image, an idol, is one form of idolatry. But we have our own forms of adultery. And we may scoff at these people who placed food before the idols. And when they returned and found that they couldn't defend themselves, let alone anyone else. And then around him later Salaam told them to ask the idols, what happened to them. We may scoff at all of this. But is this any different to what we need? What saved them It brought him at his salon was demonstrating to them was the stupidity and the futility of their behavior? And that is a lesson for
us. Because idolatry is not just about the worship of graven images. Last Hannibal with the ANA says in the Quran will mean a nassima. Yeah, I mean in law, he
the law and of the people that are those who take besides Allah,
rivals to equals to Allah, they love them
as they should have loved Allah
and those who have believed they are more intense in their love of
anything which a person becomes devoted to what did last what is the last panel without a quote of saving Rahim Allah Islam, he says, What? Athena Ibrahim Abu Akuma The irony is only a B he will only Maha the Timothy Letty.
And We bestowed
upon Ibrahim his guidance of before I'm sure he will well knowing of him when he said to his father and his people, what are the statues under the hierarchy form. And I mentioned some time ago in
the commentary of body
The chapter of fast. I mentioned about actigraph.
And I explained them and we've just had Africa in a bomb at the Gulf Coast and the roots were aquifer yap before wolfin.
So, what does it mean? What do you say to them? What are the statues that you are arguing over again, meant means someone who is utterly focused and totally devoted to something or someone to the exclusion of everything else.
And this is where the calf comes in. When a person sits in the calf, a person seclude themselves, either physically or mentally
and devotes themselves and focuses single mindedly on one thing.
And in Attica off in Ramadan, a person
and exclude everything from their mind from their life, except a loss
and their relationship.
That's the purpose of Attica. So what you said to them was, what are these statues that you are devoted to so focused on.
And we do the same with our eyes, as the last days, that are of the people those who take besides Allah equals to him that they love as they should have loved.
We can we can take any either it could be a purse, an individual, another human being a man, a woman, it could be an idea.
It could be a philosophy, it could be a way of life, it could be a habit,
it could be a personal trait.
It could be a thing of enjoyment, it could be a pastime, anything, which to which we are so devoted, single mindedly that it makes us forget the last panel with the Allah is an equal to Allah, his arrival to Allah. And therefore for us that is in itself a form of idolatry. And
it doesn't matter if we do not prostrate and bow to it.
If we believe in the power in the strength of any force, of any being of any thing, besides Allah subhanho wa Taala, that in itself is a form of ship. And that's what Ibrahim alayhis salam was demonstrating to them,
that you worship these idols, you worship these graven images, he smashed them,
and illustrated to them, that they can not do anything for themselves, that alone to anything for you.
And for us, it's the same.
Everything that we hold on to so dearly besides Allah, trusting in it's believing in it lavishly focusing our attention on it, being devoted to it.
Believing in its strength and its power, ultimately, it amounts to nothing without a loss.
So that was the lesson. So what happened after that, so even Abraham
was persecuted even more severely now by his own people. And then eventually, they threatened to burn him alive than there's a famous story of him being flung into the fire saved by jewelry.
And then eventually, he left his people. He did hedger from all to
a place called harangue in Arabic known as her arm, in modern day Turkey. And he emigrated there with members of his family. And he said in the Mahajan, lrB, I'm emigrating to my Lord.
I mentioned before, that hedger is a son of the MBR.
And in there, there is a great lesson for us.
approval, disapproval, friendship and enmity
of people doesn't really mean much.
Popularity doesn't mean
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the heavy
on the day of reckoning, there will be the prophets of Allah Who shall enter Gemma with groups of P and then I'm paraphrasing
with groups of people that there will be those who will enter Jimena with three with a few people with two p
With one person, and there will be some MBA from Sudan who shall enter Gemma alone of their
popularity doesn't mean anything. If the last panel with the adder was to bestow popularity,
onto anything, anyone, it would have been the MBR. And the hospital, the messengers and the prophets
Were saying and doing what people want,
again, isn't that divided loyalty,
a massive hammer, who would
expect something from
the creator expect something from me and the creation expect something else. So you do what the creation expects. And that's what a lot of creators,
the creator commands,
and the creation demand.
And we do what the creation demands, and ignore what the creator command
is, and that's a form of shadow. I'm not calling anybody emotionally. I'm inviting myself to reflect on the message of the true monotheism of Ibrahim alayhis. Salam, and the meaning of shidduch in Islam, and mentioned in get that will shut it off, get out, when will you
a book devoted to transactions and financial dealings and mentioned about shinnick? What does ship actually mean?
shirak originally just means partnership.
That's all it means. idolatry is a secondary, later me.
It just means partnership.
Surely means a partnership means partnership. Shiva szeliga means a company, collection of individual or partners.
Social she originally just means partnership. And she that I don't train Islam is when a person makes anyone or anything, a partner, a partner of a lust panel without in anything, and intention and act of worship and devotion.
this was the truth, though he does say that I grabbed him.
And I mentioned that he was a son of the NBA he was around, they weren't popular.
And if a law wished to bestow popularity upon anyone, it would have been the MBA most of them and they weren't inclined to populace, where they said or did what people want.
They were firm in their faith.
They will humble, demand, loving, caring, inviting to the way of Allah warming, giving glad tidings, but they were firm in their faith.
They did not
go with the flow.
They did not waver.
The message never changed.
And it was one regardless of what people said.
In fact, the way Ibrahim alayhis salaam spoke to his father illustrates beautifully

And mentioned in the book I in the Quran Ibrahim For verily he was very gracious I extremely honest. A prophet.
And remember when he mentioned when he said to his father
Oh my father, how does the message begin? He didn't scold him.
He spoke to him lovingly. every sentence begins with the words Yeah.
Oh, my father. Why a question. Not so much don't rather Wow. He invited him to think he encouraged him to think
to reflect Yeah. Oh my fault.
Why do you worship that which cannot hear which can not see you which can't help you in any way which cannot avail you of anything.
Oh my father
in need of journeymen aluminum yet
for the Bimini, Africa Surat and some
Against for verse
he answers the question that how can a son address the father the father is older, wiser, more authoritative? He's his dad.
How can the son lecture the father?
How can the son know better than the father? How can the younger one know better than the old?
So Allah subhanho wa Taala quotes his words? Yeah. Oh, my father, very, some knowledge has come to me which has not come to you.
Therefore, follow me.
And I shall guide you to the strip.
He spoke with love, he spoke with affection. He spoke with respect, regardless of his father's harshness towards him.
But he remained firm in what he believed
he did not waver
and as a result of
adhering to their beliefs, and continuing to preach to their people, and inviting them to the way of Allah, all of them the animals Salaam, Allah, and hedgerows are some of the MBR they were hardly ever revered or respected by their own people, they were almost invariably driven out. It happened with the prophets of the love. It was in Makkah, look at his life and experience in Makkah, in contrast to his life and experience in Medina, the same way they brought him and he
eventually had to leave his people. And he had to do
to Iran in modern day Turkey, but originally this was actually considered part of Sham. And that's why in the last a little while, it was something refers to show and one of the names he gives to Sham is Muhammad Ibrahim, meaning the destination of the Prophet Ibrahim's emigration.
So he lived there for many years. And there he had a number of experiences and Allah commanded him to come down to Ghana, an ancient canon, which is modern day Palestine. And from there, and then much of his Sierra, as we know, it is actually from that period.
At one time from, from modern day Palestine, he also traveled to Egypt, where he had that encounter with the Pharaoh of the day. regarding his sister, which I mentioned shortly regarding his wife, Sarah will the law of which he did say that this is my sister by explain that in the commentary of the Hadeeth, not too long ago, a few months ago, in which Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Ibrahim alayhis salam did not lie to any lie, except three lies, but he did so for the sake of Allah. And they weren't lies, as I explained that in detail, because in Arabic, the word God them means something that that doesn't conform to reality.
It doesn't conform to reality.
And, strangely, this was one of the questions which I actually posed in the human body exam paper to the graduating this year. In the heavies, the body were more, there'll be a lot more and speaks of gamma bar, and says of him in one sentence, that he was the most truthful of the narrator's who would relate to the stories of the people of the boxers. But despite this, we experience gathered with him.
And the meaning of
is not a lie, rather than something which doesn't conform to reality. Therefore, in Arabic, the word COVID refers to both an outright lie as well as an error, a mistake.
So why are we ever Lila was saying about gambling, not that he was a lie, but that he made mistakes, and there was a mistake, there was an error. So say that it brought him and in his salon, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says of him, he lied, thrice he did not lie except thrice and always for the sake of Allah.
It wasn't that he wasn't lying, but he said something. It was a form of dissimulation. But
he said something which didn't conform to reality, not as the people fault, but it did conform to reality in one way. And
one of them was, he said, in this opinion, I am ill, and I've explained all of that in on that occasion, please refer to it. But the third occasion was when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he was passing by in the land of a tyrant king.
was the Pharaoh of Egypt at the time, who, and the story was that he being corrupts of nature. They would have their arms on any beautiful woman
and saw how the law was extremely beautiful.
And it was, it was a strange custom. But if
a woman was alone, she was in danger. If a woman was accompanied by her husband, they were both
because what they would do is kill the husband
and capture the woman. But
if the woman was with a member of her family such as her brother,
then both of them would be honored and spared any harm. So see them at Brahim Elena Salaam, fearing for his life and fearing for the dignity of his wife, knowing the intentions of the Pharaoh was ultimately the most powerful man in the kingdom. And they consider themselves God to do with people as they wished to take life and to give life and in their view, the meaning of giving life was to spare someone on whom the judgment of death had been passed, and then to pass the judgment of death on someone who's totally innocent. So since the Pharaoh and others like him were of that nature see them at Rahim Allah has said, I'm told sada hold the alarm. That if we you are asked, then say that
you are my sister. And that is the truth.
For here, apart from you and me, there are no other believers, and we are brother and sister in faith.
And indeed, Pharaoh summoned. See them Ebrahim. A Salam on that occasion was powerless
and he summoned to his court. From the moment she left, Ibrahim alayhis salaam, engaged in salah and prayer, of course, Salam may have been different, we don't know the details, we can re engage in prayer to the last panel of water and supplication
became the tap and Pharaoh attempted to advance his hand towards Allah hold the alarm on her. She made it when she realizes intentions. She also began to engage in salah and in prayer and supplication to Allah, both husband and wife in different locations, praying to Allah Subhana Allah engaging in Salah. He extended his hand towards her, and he was suddenly parallel.
He suffered the paralysis of the hand,
knowing that she had something to do with this because she was praying. He said, Pray to your Lord,
to relieve me office,
and I will not harm you, I promise. So in her soft nature, she prayed to Allah to relieve him.
And instantly her supplication was accepted, and
strength returned to his hand and he was relieved of his paralysis. But a corrupt person is corrupt of nature.
Despite witnessing this miracle, he again extended his hand taught. And again, his hand froze suffering paralysis. He repeated his earlier request, pray to your God, your God, pray to your God. Just as Pharaoh and his people said to Musa alayhis salaam, pray not to God, but pray to your God.
So she said, Pray to your God to relieve me, and I promise I will not harm you or repeat myself. She prayed. Again, the paralysis was removed, being corrupt of nature. For the third time he extended his hand, and again, his hand frozen, he suffered paralysis. Then she prayed, he requested another door and she prayed. And then third time,
he came to his senses, but even then, not fully, because he's summoned his court ears and he said to them, You have not brought me a woman or a human being. She's not an Inserm. She's a shavon.
So take her away.
they took her away.
And He then told her, and his core tears that take her away.
And then he also found out that Ibrahim alayhis salaam was her husband, she said, Take her away and take that man away, tell them to leave my land. And strangely,
he gave her a gift.
Probably to encourage her to depart and he gave her a gift of a made a handmaiden
Maharaja robiola. She was a copped an Egyptian girl. So he gave her as a gift to her. So when she returned to see them at Ibrahim alayhis salaam, he was still engaged in his daughter and his Salah in his prayer. And he asked her, whilst praying with a signal of his hand with the motion of his hand, what happened? So she said, Allah Subhana, Allah protected me. And he returned me to you. And he was also given as a gift of a handmaiden, and that was the Coptic made harder will be Allah.
From eventually see the name, Brahim and Islam had a sunny smile.
This reminds me, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given the Coptic made as a gift, Mario will be alive on her. And she bought him many years after his last child. Many years later, she brought some great joy and happiness with Ibrahim or the alohar in his beautiful son, whom he had to sacrifice for the sake of
just as Ibrahim It was called sacrifices. But law did not take him away with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he did he loved Mario cookie out of the Aloha summit so that the wives, they were jealous of each other. But when Maria to be able to love her, and her arrived, they were all collectively jealous of her. So he had to remove her from near the mustard to a distant area of Medina, where he would go regularly to visit her, and even our hearing of the alarm. And when he was born, he was so overjoyed he would bring him, show him to the family. He showed him to a shot of the love on her. And he said, Do you not see
my likeness in him, and I shadow the alarm, I looked at him and said he doesn't look like.
So here we are, at the end of the day.
When I shut up de la Han Han says that when a woman suffers from real jealousy,
the upper part of the valley spins around the valley springs. What that means is that the upper part of the valley appears as the lower part of the valley, and the lower Valley appears as the upper valley. And that's in the open, clear desert air. Despite his clarity in its penetration to the mind, and its piercing effect, the clouds a person's judgment, and we can all suffer from here, ma'am all and therefore jealousy is extremely dangerous. Both hazard is dangerous, and jealousy is dangerous.
It can lead to paranoia, and they both feed of each other paranoia feeds of jealousy, jealousy feeds off paranoia. And that's why I've always said even in English, there's a great difference in distinction between jealousy and envy, we normally use the words interchangeably, we say jealous of someone who's jealous of another person. But Strictly speaking, passive is envy, envy.
And jealousy is a viola Hosea, both pronunciations in Arabic. And in Arabic, we see the euro and the Euro, and in other language, especially in others have had. So
one of the again, one of those common famous words and beloved words, in order to,
especially in our culture, is that I'm aware that these two perceptions, these two ideas, notions of is that
lead to so much violence, so much conflict, so much ill behavior and such stupidity.
Because with this idea of that, a person doesn't think straight or rational, just as meaning it'll be a lot more an asset. So in Arabic v. ramlila. Refer to jealousy. So what's the distinction between jealousy and jealousy and envy, simple envy is when you are passionate about what someone else has, but you don't have.
And jealousy is when you are passionate of what you have simple has. Envy is when you're passionate about what someone else has.
And you may even have it, you may actually have it. We still are envious. So envy is when you're passionate about what someone else has. And jealousy is when you're passionate about what you have. You don't want to lose it, but in that
desire, to control to retain control
To control something which is uncontrolled, to keep something which is not everlasting to hold on something which is transients by its very nature,
we lose our man.
That's a man does it, a woman does.
Men unfortunately kill out of jealousy.
That's what the whole Shakespearean play of Othello is about. And he's actually a Muslim.
In the fella is Muslim,
but not refer to as such, but the
or the mall.
So, men killing their jellison so Anyway, moving in a shot of the alarm. She explains that a VIERA leads
a person to great confusion and even the valley spins for a woman suffering from or a person suffering from Lila so she said about you but I hear the alarm and he doesn't look like you. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
his son was taken away from him. And his story is similar to the one he made in his salon Maria, out of the love and her job, the Coptic the maid given to Ibrahim alayhis salam. After that the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam left Egypt with both sides of the law and her, his wife, and the handmade handmade and hardcover or the Allaha and returned to the land of modern day Palestine. He lived for very long, and despite being greatly advanced in his years, he did not have a child his family was childless and omona sada hold the alarm and I just couldn't conceive. And he prayed and he prayed to Allah subhanho wa Taala for a child with great patience. Again, this was another act of devotion and
patience. Another great lesson for us. From the time he was married at a young age, Salah holds hold the alarm, it was actually his cousin sister, not his half sister, his cousin, sister, his first cousin, despite being married for such a long time, they were childless, a childless couple. And he continued to pray to the last panel over and over again, with patience with submission, submitting to the willand decree of Allah without despair without frustration.
a lot of them gave him a child, many, many decades later scores of years later. And that was only after sada huddled the alarm, I realized that she was unable to conceive. And therefore she said to him at a salon that I am unable to conceive. Why don't you marry her? This handmaiden of line and perhaps through her let me give you a chart.
So see that Abraham already has married and when I heard the alarm rang her, and then eventually she Well, she gave birth to the Prophet is married and he slammed his first son. This now leads us to the beginning of heavy from this as well stop and in sha Allah from next week we'll continue with the actual activity.
