00:01:18--> 00:01:29

We resumed the study and study of the commentary of the lethal Ibrahim alayhis salaam and his family from a global heart he

00:01:30--> 00:01:34

had his number 3364

00:01:37--> 00:01:43

This is the fifth session of the IDs and inshallah we will be completing it today.

00:01:47--> 00:01:51

Since there's very little left and

00:01:54--> 00:02:08

we will be completing it. In order to recap allow me to quickly read through the Hadith again, I won't read the Arabic but I'll just provide a quick translation that will bring us up to the

00:02:09--> 00:02:17

end of the Hadees so we'll be listening more closely Minnie de la disini Abdullah

in

00:02:52--> 00:03:19

each of them, adding more than the other from signature baby Abdullah lightner bus, it'll be a lot like mircette. This is the centroid of the chain of transmission. And now we have the main text of the ID. So I'll just quickly translate, and then bring us up to date with the final part. And the line numbers will be a lot like Mercedes that the

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

first that women ever adopted.

00:03:23--> 00:03:28

The sash was from the mother of a smart

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

lady.

00:03:31--> 00:03:42

She took her sash so that she may conceal her traces from some of the alarm.

00:03:43--> 00:03:51

Then Ibrahim alayhis salam brought her and his son is married at a Muslim while she was still breastfeeding

00:03:52--> 00:04:02

until he placed both of them near the house by a large tree above Zamzam in the upper part of the machine.

00:04:04--> 00:04:05

And there was no one

00:04:06--> 00:04:21

in those days in Makkah, and neither was there any water there. So he placed both of them there. And he plays by them. A skin wearing there was water sorry, skin.

00:04:22--> 00:04:31

Wearing there was dates and skin wearing there was a there was water. Then Ibrahim alayhis salam

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

returned,

00:04:35--> 00:04:37

leaving walking away.

00:04:40--> 00:04:53

Or he turned around walking away. When we smile. He the mother of his Marine, Liam Salaam followed him. And she said, Oh, Ibrahim, where are you going and leaving us in this valley, wherein there is no hidden

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

or anything.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

So she said this to him a few times.

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

And he was not even turning to her.

00:05:05--> 00:05:17

When she said to him, has a law commanded you to do this? He said, Yes, she replied them, he shall never allow us to perish. She then returned.

00:05:18--> 00:05:20

So Ibrahim alayhis salam,

00:05:21--> 00:05:22

wat

00:05:23--> 00:05:29

or he left he proceeded until he was by the

00:05:33--> 00:05:35

for Nia, the entrance of the valley

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

by the mountain pass,

00:05:42--> 00:05:42

where

00:05:45--> 00:05:55

they could not see him. So he turned facing the house I the house of Allah. Then he prayed with these words, and he raised his hands and said,

00:05:57--> 00:06:01

Robin are in the US government via the word innovative these that are in debate.

00:06:02--> 00:06:10

This is the verse of the Quran, that Oh our Lord, verily I have settled my have members of my family, in a valley,

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

void of vegetation,

00:06:14--> 00:06:30

close to your sacred house, Robin and your teams so that the federal government and NASA that we elected him, what is optimum in a thermal article and on your school, or law so that meaning I've done this so that they may establish solar,

00:06:31--> 00:06:37

so therefore cause the hearts of the people to flutter to them in love

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

and provide to them offering

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

in the hope that they may be grateful.

00:06:48--> 00:07:03

And the mother of his smile, he even said and began breastfeeding is smoking and drinking of that water, which Ibrahim alayhis salaam left, until when that water until when the water expired from

00:07:04--> 00:07:09

the skin. She became thirsty and her son became thirsty.

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

And she began looking at him.

00:07:13--> 00:07:25

She began, she said she began looking at him turning and twisting, or the narrator said for him on the earth. So she walked away,

00:07:26--> 00:07:29

out of dislike of having to see this.

00:07:30--> 00:07:45

Then she found suffer the hillock of suffer the closest hill or mountain on the land to her. So she ascended as in stood on it. And she faced the valley

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

glancing

00:07:51--> 00:08:38

could she see anyone but she never saw anyone. She descended from suffer until she reached the valley in between. Then she until when she reached the valley, she raised the edge of a cloth. And then she ran like the running of a desperate or exerting heatman until she crossed the valley. Then she arrived at the hillock of middleware, and she ascended it and stood on it. And she looked around, Could she see anyone but she saw not one. So she's did this seven times, if not above, so the Allah says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, so this is the running of the people between the hills of suffer and muda.

00:08:40--> 00:08:41

She then climbed on metal.

00:08:43--> 00:08:48

Then when she climbed on the hillock of Mandala, she heard a sound. So she said,

00:08:50--> 00:08:55

referring to herself, then she listened carefully. So she heard the sound again.

00:08:57--> 00:09:03

She said, addressing the sound you have caused me to hear.

00:09:04--> 00:09:21

So if you have any aid, then come forth and assist me. So lo and behold, there was an angel by the location of Zamzam. So he rubbed the ground with his heel, or the narrator said with his win, until the water appeared.

00:09:23--> 00:09:36

So she the mother of a smart Isla de mussalam began gathering encircling the water and doing this with her hands, and she began scooping up the water into the water.

00:09:37--> 00:09:48

Once it continued to gush forth, after her scooping up the water, in our bus of the love of Mercedes the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:09:49--> 00:09:54

may Allah have mercy on the mother of his Mary, If only she had left them

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

as it was, all the prophets of the love it was seldom said if only

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

She had not scooped up the water from zum zum,

00:10:03--> 00:10:07

then zum zum would have been a flowing spring.

00:10:08--> 00:10:42

Even our best of the Alon Omar continues to say she then drank and she gave her son to drink. Then the angel said to her, do not fear perishing, For verily here is the house of Allah, which shall be built by this young lad and his father. And indeed, Allah does not cause his people to perish, and the house was raised from the ground, lack of mound, the floodwaters would come to it, and take the right or the left

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

of this man.

00:10:46--> 00:10:55

So she remained like this until a group of the tribe of gentlemen passed by her or a clan of Jerome,

00:10:56--> 00:11:03

coming from the path of gather name of a place so they

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

settled or camped in the lower part of MCC. And they saw

00:11:11--> 00:11:12

a bird circling.

00:11:13--> 00:11:18

So they said, Indeed, this bird circles on water.

00:11:19--> 00:11:38

And our memory of this valley is such that there's no water there in so they sent one or two scats and they discovered the water. So they returned and inform them of the water. So they all came. I'm delighted now Best of the scenes.

00:11:39--> 00:12:04

They came whilst the mother of his marine and he was Saddam was by the water. So they said to her, do you grant us permission to settle by water descend and camp buying? She said yes. But you still have no rights over the water. They said yes. Even ambassador, your loved one who now says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this whole episode met

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

the mother of his smile eagerly.

00:12:08--> 00:12:14

at such a time that she was desiring art she was desirous of company.

00:12:15--> 00:12:31

So they settled, and they sent word to their families and brought them so they also settled with them. Until then there were until when there were a few clams of them in the valley of Malacca. And the young lad

00:12:33--> 00:12:55

reached maturity and youthfulness and he learned Arabic from them. One foster home and he endeared himself to them. And he pleased them when he grew up. So when he reached of age, they married him to a woman from amongst them and the mother of his Marine, and he was so damn passed away.

00:12:57--> 00:13:26

Then Ibrahim alayhis salam came after ismar Isla de Hassan had married. So Ibrahim alayhis salam came seeking his legacy or inquiring of his legacy. So he did not find his smile, he alayhis salam, so he asked his wife about them. So she said he has gone out hunting for us. So he asked her, about their livelihood, about their condition. So she said we are in great distress.

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

We are in difficulty.

00:13:30--> 00:13:32

We are in severity.

00:13:33--> 00:13:35

And that she complained to him.

00:13:38--> 00:14:22

Then when so he said he brought him at his Salaam said, when your husband comes, convey my greetings to him and say to him, that he should change the threshold, the doorstep of his heart of his door. So when it's my read le Salaam arrived, it was as though he sent something. So he said, Did anyone come to me? She said, Yes, an old man such and such counters. And he asked me about you so I informed him and he asked me how was how was our life? So I told him you were in great severity and difficulty. So he said Did she did he instructs you to do anything? She said yes, he commanded me to convey

00:14:24--> 00:14:28

his greetings to you and say to you that you should change the threshold of your door

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

so it's not easily Salaam said that is my fault.

00:14:33--> 00:14:44

And he verily he has instructed me to separate from you. So join your family. And then he divorced her and married another woman from amongst them.

00:14:46--> 00:14:51

Then Ibrahim alayhis salaam stayed away from them for as long as the law wished.

00:14:52--> 00:14:56

And he came to them afterwards and again, he did not find a smile at least

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

So he visited his

00:15:05--> 00:15:13

wife, and he asked her about him. So she said he has gone out hunting for us. He said, How are you?

00:15:14--> 00:15:24

And he asked her about their life and about their condition. So she said, We are in great good and great comforts, and she praised Allah.

00:15:26--> 00:15:29

He then asked, What's your food? She replied me.

00:15:31--> 00:15:41

He then said, and what's your drink? She said water. He said, Oh Allah, bless them in the meat and in the water. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:15:43--> 00:15:47

and at that time, they had no grain.

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

Had they

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

had grain,

00:15:52--> 00:15:54

then he would have surely prayed

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

for them ingrained to

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

He then said,

00:16:03--> 00:16:09

no one subsists exclusively on these two meaning meats and water.

00:16:11--> 00:16:11

Apart from

00:16:12--> 00:16:15

except that they do not agree with him.

00:16:16--> 00:16:23

Even though he really is Sam, them said to her, when your husband comes, convey my great greetings to him,

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

and instruct him

00:16:26--> 00:16:35

to keep the threshold of his door. So when they came, so when it's my either Lisa lamb came,

00:16:36--> 00:16:41

he said, has anyone come to you? She said, Yes, an old man

00:16:43--> 00:17:02

have a very good appearance and state came to us and she praised him. He then asked me about you. So I informed him. He then asked me how was our livelihood? So I told him that we are in great, we are in great blessing. Great good. He said, Did he command you to do anything? She replied.

00:17:03--> 00:17:04

Yes.

00:17:05--> 00:17:32

He conveys his greetings to you. And he instructs you that you should keep the threshold of your door it's my enemies that answer that is my fault. And you are the threshold and he has commanded me to retain you. This is where we ended last week and let me continue from here and explain further. Somewhat libertarian who Masha Allah then Ibrahim alayhis salam remained away from them

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

for as long as a law wished

00:17:37--> 00:17:40

back early, with smart liberty in Lebanon, the Who?

00:17:43--> 00:17:53

Then Ibrahim alayhis salam let's then he came after this, once it's more easily his Salaam was sharpening a shaft

00:17:55--> 00:17:58

beneath a large tree, but even

00:17:59--> 00:18:01

close to Zamzam.

00:18:06--> 00:18:09

What this means is, again, Ibrahim alayhis salam.

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

He

00:18:13--> 00:18:18

stayed away from them for some time for a considerable time. And then

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

he came again to visit his son.

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

And when he arrived in Makkah,

00:18:30--> 00:18:56

he went looking for the latest alarm and he found him were near a large tree. This was the same tree the same though, where he had left his smile even in his cinemas a baby with the mother. And now on this journey when he returns, he finds his child again at the same spot, but now sitting there sharpening a shaft

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

meaning the shaft of an arrow.

00:19:01--> 00:19:05

The like I said, the Arabs have names for

00:19:07--> 00:19:14

most things at all it's different stages, and even an arrow from the moment it's

00:19:16--> 00:19:39

cuts from wood and then shaped and sharpened and the feathers are added the spear head or the arrowhead is added. And at each stage the Arabs have different names for the arrows. So the shaft of the arrow without the feathers and without the arrowheads is known as Nebula so we're sharpening a shaft

00:19:41--> 00:19:45

beneath the tree, the same large tree got even

00:19:46--> 00:19:51

close to the well of Samsung, for that matter, our

00:19:52--> 00:19:52

army lean.

00:19:54--> 00:19:57

So when it's my release that arm saw him his father.

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

He wrote

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

to

00:20:01--> 00:20:17

respectfully for some, GM is not one word, a double word. So they both did what a father does with his son, ie, embracing him hugging him, showing him love and affection even in his adulthood.

00:20:18--> 00:20:21

What in the world as a son does with the Father

00:20:22--> 00:20:23

arm.

00:20:27--> 00:20:35

Again what this shows is, is even though these were two prophets of Allah, and Amos

00:20:37--> 00:20:41

and each had their dignity and their position with the last panel with honor

00:20:44--> 00:20:45

but when meeting one another,

00:20:46--> 00:20:49

they still display that love that affection

00:20:53--> 00:20:53

as

00:20:55--> 00:20:58

the relationship between a father and son demands.

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

From Alia is smart, he

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

then he brought him at his ceram said to him old smart he, in the law, Imani the

00:21:12--> 00:21:13

Verily Allah has

00:21:15--> 00:21:16

instructed me to do something

00:21:19--> 00:21:24

on his mind at alayhis salam said, First maroma, Morocco, Morocco.

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

So do what your Lord has commanded you to do.

00:21:33--> 00:21:39

This was the spirit and the mentality and the understanding, obviously.

00:21:42--> 00:21:47

He didn't know what Allah had told his father to do.

00:21:50--> 00:21:59

And yet without hesitation, without even inquiring of his father, as to what the commandment was. He said to him,

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

do what your Lord commanded.

00:22:06--> 00:22:12

submission to alas primer without. And this is exactly what Ibrahim alayhis salaam said to him

00:22:15--> 00:22:23

when he saw the dream, so allow me to take a break here and just take us back.

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

In this long for these

00:22:28--> 00:22:37

a number of journeys, I mentioned that Ibrahim alayhis salam came to drop off his son and wife, he then left He then returned,

00:22:39--> 00:22:52

at the time of after his wife had died, and after his son had married, then he returned, returned again, for the second well for another time to speak to his

00:22:54--> 00:22:57

son about his wife and then return. So these trips are mentioned.

00:23:04--> 00:23:16

One interest in credit. Well, one interesting question here is did he only come least three times? No, he came more obviously. How many times we do not know for sure, at least four times.

00:23:18--> 00:23:33

Four or five? What five times? These three mentioned so far, the first three, the fourth one, when he came in this last occasion? And when he also came to slaughter his son, smartly that

00:23:35--> 00:23:46

sounds a bit harsh, but when he came to sacrifice his son, Ismail alayhis, salaam, that was another occasion. Did he we know that from authentic narrations, but did he come apart from this?

00:23:47--> 00:24:00

There are some reports that aren't very authentic, but they are historical reports that Ibrahim alayhis salam would travel miraculously from the land of Palestine to Makkah.

00:24:01--> 00:24:14

But these aren't very authentic reports. So let's suffice with what we know to be true. Which is that he came on these few occasions. But the one occasion which has not been mentioned in this video,

00:24:15--> 00:24:16

is

00:24:18--> 00:24:32

when he came when his son was still young, but had grown up was still in his early years, and he was fit and evil enough to do his own thing.

00:24:35--> 00:24:43

But I think really his salon came to Makkah Metis and obviously they would have greeted one another with great love and affection. And then

00:24:45--> 00:24:47

as a last panel with Anna Sykes and Nakata.

00:24:50--> 00:24:52

philam Bella Mara who sang

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

that when smart he

00:24:56--> 00:24:58

when this child is first born

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

when he

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

reached the age of running and striving with the Father.

00:25:10--> 00:25:22

Alia wynia in the era of limb anatomy and the fungal mother Tara Alia grandma took such a journey inshallah sloppy filamentous dilemma

00:25:26--> 00:25:29

when he came and met his son who was still young

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

and he said to him,

00:25:35--> 00:25:36

oh my son,

00:25:38--> 00:25:42

verily I see in a vision in the dream,

00:25:44--> 00:25:46

the I am slaughtering

00:25:49--> 00:25:50

from god mother.

00:25:51--> 00:25:53

So tell me, what do you think?

00:25:54--> 00:26:00

The words of the poor and I'm translating literally from grandma. So tell me what do you think

00:26:03--> 00:26:04

are the two

00:26:06--> 00:26:08

he said, Oh my father do as you are command.

00:26:09--> 00:26:19

Set legitime insha Allah Mina sobbing, you will find me if Allah wills from the patience and perseverance

00:26:20--> 00:26:37

for the man dilemma, then when they both submitted to the command of a law, father and son. Now obviously this is something which is extremely difficult for us to envisage visualized or even imagined to even comprehend.

00:26:40--> 00:26:42

But this is how law describes it.

00:26:44--> 00:26:45

So there's a parallel here.

00:26:47--> 00:27:02

Now the story, the parallel is here to when he approached his son met him, they both greeted one another with great love and affection. Then, Ibrahim alayhis salaam, said to him,

00:27:04--> 00:27:07

oh my son, Allah has commanded me to do something.

00:27:08--> 00:27:10

So what was a sentence reply?

00:27:11--> 00:27:14

Some say to the Father or father do what Allah has commanded us.

00:27:16--> 00:27:21

No hesitation, immediate submission to the will in the command of Allah.

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

This is

00:27:28--> 00:27:52

this is why Brahim le Hassan was chosen that last panel with data. And this whole story is very relevant because we are in the period of hatch. And the story of Ibrahim and his smile in his salon and the sacrificing of his son and their submission to a last panel which is again very apt and relevant for this period. For in a few weeks time we will all be celebrating

00:27:54--> 00:27:54

evil.

00:27:57--> 00:28:00

And this is what evil is all about.

00:28:02--> 00:28:13

The 10th of the hedger is known as young now, the day of slaughter the day of sacrifice. They have slaughtering the animals, but all of these

00:28:17--> 00:28:24

sacrifices, all of these other all of these are earnings.

00:28:27--> 00:28:40

And some people have suggested that Barney is a non it's an Asian word. It's only to be found in Asian languages. urbani truth is that's actually taken from the

00:28:46--> 00:28:47

abdominal

00:28:48--> 00:29:01

Oban in Corona. So the word Oban comes from the Holy Quran. And so all of these Audubon, all of these other all of these sacrifices

00:29:03--> 00:29:07

all of these are taking place on your map, the day of slaughter

00:29:11--> 00:29:18

as a reenactment and in commemoration of the sacrificing of the ram

00:29:19--> 00:29:25

that gibreel alayhis salaam brought from the heavens as compensation for his my elderly.

00:29:28--> 00:29:36

But before that, why was this such a significant event? Why was this around brought from the heavens?

00:29:37--> 00:29:38

Why

00:29:40--> 00:29:43

is that? Is there this worldwide universal

00:29:45--> 00:29:46

commemoration,

00:29:47--> 00:29:53

numbering millions throughout Islamic history taught to them to continue forever?

00:29:54--> 00:29:57

Why is there this huge commemoration

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

of one act?

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

willingness to sacrifice.

00:30:04--> 00:30:06

The lesson for us is

00:30:08--> 00:30:17

that the story of the willingness of the father to sacrifice his son and Watson's panela, he married,

00:30:18--> 00:30:23

he continued to pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala to give him a son to give him a child.

00:30:24--> 00:30:27

He waited, he waited and lots of humans

00:30:29--> 00:30:43

for many, many years, and not just a few years, but decades, scores of years. And then finally in the sixth year of his life, according to one narration, when Allah blessed him with a smile at his salon,

00:30:46--> 00:30:48

he has no opportunity

00:30:50--> 00:30:51

to spend time with a son.

00:30:53--> 00:30:56

modern man enjoys paternity.

00:30:59--> 00:31:11

Ibrahim alayhis salam waited scores of years decades for his child. And finally Allah blessed him with a child. His test was his tests never ended.

00:31:12--> 00:31:17

It was test after test. Waiting for a child is a test undoubtedly.

00:31:20--> 00:31:26

We as humans, we are never happy, as I was saying last week, those who have children.

00:31:27--> 00:31:32

Sometimes in their anger and their frustration, they curse the day the children were born.

00:31:33--> 00:31:36

They don't curse the day they were conceived because the day they were born.

00:31:44--> 00:31:44

So

00:31:46--> 00:31:53

because the day they were born, less than their anger and frustration, and those who don't have children.

00:31:54--> 00:32:05

In their desperation, they run from pillar to post, praying supplicating, seeking a cure, seeking all kinds of treatments.

00:32:07--> 00:32:08

They weep.

00:32:09--> 00:32:12

They have no children, those who have children.

00:32:15--> 00:32:16

And

00:32:20--> 00:32:22

those who don't have children weep.

00:32:27--> 00:32:30

Those who are married wants to flee and be free.

00:32:33--> 00:32:37

Those who aren't married, pray for the punishment of marriage.

00:32:40--> 00:32:41

So we are never happy.

00:32:44--> 00:32:51

So waiting for a child is a severe test, ask we may not appreciate it, ask those who don't have children.

00:32:58--> 00:33:01

Remember, once in a gathering,

00:33:02--> 00:33:05

there was a young man, one of my students.

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

And I was casually speaking about children.

00:33:09--> 00:33:18

In the gathering Well, it was a gathering of learning. But as part of the topic, he wasn't the main topic, but in passing, I made a few comments about children.

00:33:19--> 00:33:25

Now this young man pray for him. He suffers from certain illnesses and a disability.

00:33:26--> 00:33:40

And the doctor, I never knew this, but he suddenly stood up he was sitting in a chair and he suddenly stood up on his crutches. And loudly sobbing he left the hall.

00:33:43--> 00:33:49

And it shocked everybody. I then, after the gathering had ended, I went to see him.

00:33:50--> 00:34:12

And he wasn't he was inconsolable and he wasn't he never came back. So I went outside and he was sitting in the corridor outside, on a chair still stopping. And a few people trying to console him but he was inconsolable. So then I took him to one side. And I said to him, I calmed him down. And I said to him, what happened? Was it something I said?

00:34:14--> 00:34:25

And he said to me that he was when you started talking about children. He was a young man, he wasn't old. It was a married. You said it was when you started talking about children.

00:34:27--> 00:34:32

And he said because I suffer from these illnesses and this disability.

00:34:34--> 00:34:43

Doctors have already told me that even if I get married, I have zero chance of having children because of my

00:34:44--> 00:34:50

disability more than one actually and my severe illness suffers from one or two very rare conditions.

00:34:52--> 00:34:53

So you said

00:34:54--> 00:35:00

it's not just now but whenever anyone mentions children or

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Sometimes even when I see young children,

00:35:03--> 00:35:06

the pain is excruciating.

00:35:08--> 00:35:14

I cannot bear to watch, I cannot bear to stay, I cannot bear to hear.

00:35:16--> 00:35:37

And he said, even though I must bet he was begging forgiveness, because he said it was disrespectful of me was rude, but I could not contain myself. And as I said, he, despite his disability, he suddenly stood up and struggled out of the room on his crutches, and weeping very, very loudly. sobbing inconsolably.

00:35:38--> 00:35:45

So I just saw this as an example, ask those who don't have children or who Allah

00:35:46--> 00:35:49

help them have already been told that they will never be able to have children.

00:35:51--> 00:35:53

Waiting for children is a true test.

00:35:55--> 00:36:04

Those of us who don't appreciate it as those who don't have children. So Ibrahim alayhis, Salam was a prophet of Allah. And he longed for a child

00:36:05--> 00:36:08

and the prophets of Allah, Allah He must.

00:36:09--> 00:36:14

Their reason for longing for children was never a worldly one.

00:36:15--> 00:36:17

That was a religious one.

00:36:18--> 00:36:23

Even in their marriages, even in their families, they

00:36:25--> 00:36:36

prayed for and longed for and wanted those things that would help them in fulfilling their mission of profit. So when they prayed for chil children

00:36:40--> 00:36:43

just like as a career and he said, um, pray to Allah.

00:36:48--> 00:36:52

When he prayed or law in the beginning of sort of medium

00:36:55--> 00:36:59

when he prayed to love children, why did he pray?

00:37:00--> 00:37:03

Yet he thought he were so mean earlier,

00:37:04--> 00:37:08

so that he could inherit my legacy he could succeed me.

00:37:09--> 00:37:12

And he could succeed the family of Yaqoob.

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

And

00:37:16--> 00:37:19

what was the legacy of the prophets?

00:37:21--> 00:37:23

What was the treasure of the prophets?

00:37:26--> 00:37:36

If we're sort of laughs a little it was cinema season that famous heatilator by my mom, after the hamlins Muslim Imam or Buddha or the mammoth enemy, the in their sermon and even imagine

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

from the law,

00:37:41--> 00:37:43

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:37:47--> 00:37:53

that indeed that roller man or the water bottle MBR, they are the successors to the profits.

00:37:55--> 00:38:20

When the MBR lm you would have with all the nanomolar there were in them our fill in from an effort that he after that he had the word feel, that the scholars are the successors to the profits. And the profits do not bequeath the narrow gold sovereigns, gold coins or silver coins. They do not bequeath or leave behind the legacy of golden silver, were in the mail What are

00:38:21--> 00:38:24

they only leave and bequeath knowledge

00:38:26--> 00:38:42

from another whoever they have been worth? So whoever takes a share of that legacy of the profits in terms of knowledge, and he has gained a great charity. So if this legacy of the prophets even to the oma, even to the scholars,

00:38:44--> 00:38:47

who are the spiritual sons of the prophets of Allah, and even

00:38:49--> 00:39:35

if that is not worldly and only religious and purely religious, then what can be said of the flesh and blood of the prophets of Allah, and the Legacy The treasure that they inherit, and that they succeed their forefathers in is the legacy of prophethood is a legacy of the messenger ship. It's the legacy of knowledge, it's the legacy of the mission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So even in their prayers to Allah, whether it was the creality salam, or whether it was even Abraham it his Salaam, their reason to praying for Allah, whether it was our noble prophet Salaam, it was something he longed for a child, and he grieved his passing children, just as he grieved for say, for Ibrahim or

00:39:35--> 00:39:48

the loved one for Mario to be out of the allowing her and he prayed for children and the British would taunt him. They would say he is without legacy. He is tasteless.

00:39:49--> 00:39:57

And this is the meaning of sort of Gotham in Napa inocle. Coastal for suddenly Rob Baker one how in the shanika when

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

they were told

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

To him that Mohammed is without children because male children meant everything.

00:40:05--> 00:40:17

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had no male children surviving male children. So they constantly taunted him, they would post and say we have 10 sons, when he didn't leave,

00:40:19--> 00:40:23

Father, Holly, lead, and others.

00:40:24--> 00:40:34

They would boast of their strength, their numbers, their children, their clans, and they were torn for a small loss in the long run even worse than them and say he is without children.

00:40:36--> 00:40:38

And he only has daughters.

00:40:40--> 00:40:41

Strangely,

00:40:42--> 00:40:55

even our even in our own culture and tradition, it's sad. But it's like preference is given to boys over girls and in clinics, fertility clinics throughout the world.

00:40:56--> 00:41:08

Approximately 75% of their clients have couples who go to these fertility clinics to

00:41:09--> 00:41:16

genetically improve their chances and to separate the

00:41:17--> 00:41:40

possible to separate the sperm etc. and to try and induce a male pregnancy. 75% of the clients are Asian. And when I say Asian, I don't mean Far Eastern Asian, Asian as the term we use in the UK, ie people from the Indian subcontinent. We suffer from this

00:41:43--> 00:41:44

culture.

00:41:45--> 00:41:53

And this belief in our culture, that boys are preferable to girls. This was the concept of Jay Z.

00:41:55--> 00:41:58

This is what the Arabs believed and this is what they practiced.

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

And there are many things there are many, many reasons why lots Panama chooses to bless a couple with children, no children, male or female.

00:42:12--> 00:42:16

Allah says it's a very powerful set of verses

00:42:17--> 00:42:21

the law of similarity will up your local nyesha

00:42:22--> 00:42:26

Yeah, what do you mean your shirt with another way? What do you mean yourself? Foucault.

00:42:28--> 00:42:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala. Say,

00:42:31--> 00:42:34

Say's Law belongs a kingdom of the heavens and the earth.

00:42:38--> 00:42:40

He creates what he wishes.

00:42:43--> 00:42:58

He gets to him, he wills, girls, he gets to him, he wills boys, oh, he has a widget on the corner where enough or he gives them couples of boys anger sets of boys and girls

00:43:01--> 00:43:04

and whomever wishes whomever law wishes, Allah leaves and bearing

00:43:07--> 00:43:09

with Allah when you show up in

00:43:10--> 00:43:37

so this is the will and the other of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And of late, a lot of scientific research in statistics, they put the points to one thing, which is that they, and you can look up at this on this. They say fathers who are strong, strong of character, strong willed leaders.

00:43:39--> 00:43:55

They generally tend to have girls and daughters. And they mentioned soldiers, basically macho men, have daughters, leaders have daughters. So this idea that

00:43:57--> 00:44:04

a man who has daughters were the bangles in the house, it's false, it's the other way around.

00:44:06--> 00:44:17

And these petty ideas shouldn't really concern as I mentioned that humorously otherwise, what better example is there than the prophets of Allah it was

00:44:18--> 00:44:19

the Prophet, Allah His

00:44:21--> 00:44:23

Prophet Mohammed son, the law it was.

00:44:24--> 00:44:46

So this was a jibe on a tones that was thrown out of a soul the loss and the law, it was sudden them that he is tailors. That means tailors, he has no tail, no one to succeed and no one's come after him. And this hurt the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he grieved not for worldly reasons for that trust wasn't a last panel with that. But

00:44:48--> 00:44:56

for religious reasons, he wanted children who would continue with his legacy. But then Allah subhanho wa Taala told him

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

I'm about to Jericho, when aka rasulillah, who hurt them in the beam, Mohammed Salah It was one of them is not the father

00:45:12--> 00:45:14

of any of the men amongst you.

00:45:15--> 00:45:20

Rather, he is a messenger, the Messenger of Allah and the seal of the prophets.

00:45:21--> 00:45:34

So indeed last panel with Allah did not give him surviving male children. What does the law say in the nachliel go? We've given you go through urban good in abundance, for solid Arabic a one.

00:45:36--> 00:45:47

So in gratitude, and as part of your alarm, you continue to pray, you continue to sacrifice, don't worry, in the shanika one of your detractors is the tale as

00:45:49--> 00:46:03

those who oppose you, they are tasteless. And even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never had surviving male children, from that day till today until you're the armor, he will have billions and billions, trillions of children.

00:46:05--> 00:46:06

The whole room

00:46:07--> 00:46:11

is around some sort of sort of loss and the law.

00:46:13--> 00:46:24

So the very not having a child is a true test or last parameter without a test, but it really is. And he waited, he waited, he waited. Finally, when he was given a child,

00:46:25--> 00:46:34

he didn't have time to. He didn't spend time with him, Allah told him take him and his mother to the valley of Mecca, he delivered in return.

00:46:35--> 00:46:43

And then when Allah sends him back, he sends him not to play with him, but to sacrifice. It's something which is beyond our comprehension.

00:46:44--> 00:47:28

And what was this is why this whole is so relevant, because we will be slaughtering animals. We will be feasting on Yeoman now. Before what purpose we will be sacrificing animals. All of this is a commemoration of the sacrifice of Ibrahim alayhis salam, most importantly, as I've always said, these are the mere symbols. These are the mere appearances of religion, all of them have an inner dimension. So what's the inner dimension of sacrifice? Allah Subhana Allah tells us, Leonardo, da da, da da da, da, Ki narrow taqwa minco. But the flesh and the blood of these animals will not reach a law, what will reach a law his duck wife?

00:47:29--> 00:47:41

This is symbolic. The idea of slaughtering an animal is symbolic. What does it symbolize? It symbolizes the our willingness to sacrifice and to submit to a Lost Planet.

00:47:42--> 00:48:06

Just as Ibrahim is smart enough names for them submitted and what submission they taught us a lesson in submission. Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam said to his son I see in a dream that I'm slaughtering you some essays. Oh, Father, do as a luck match. You will find me patience, perseverance. Here. Ibrahim alayhis salam meets his son, after so long. He says to him.

00:48:08--> 00:48:15

Allah Subhana Allah has commanded me to do something. And the last time he said this to his son, what was it?

00:48:16--> 00:48:26

He said, a lot of time he sacrificed he. Now he tells him again, that last told me to do something without pause without hesitation you say to him, Father, do what law tells you.

00:48:28--> 00:48:38

So first name, America, do what your father commanded. Do what your Lord commands you on. Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam then said to him motorin will you assist me?

00:48:39--> 00:48:41

And he said, Yes, I will assist you.

00:48:45--> 00:48:57

By law in the law I'm attorney and Amir will now have on our beta. He said Indeed Allah has commanded me that I should build a house here. What Charlotte ila accomadating McDuffie act in Alabama.

00:48:58--> 00:49:06

And then he pointed to a mound of Earth, which was elevated from the rest of the ground. All at the end of the

00:49:07--> 00:49:24

prophets alarm It was then sent them then said so then for in the garlic at that time. I refer to them in a debate they both raise the foundations of the house for Janet smart Ito yet the belay job. So it's my release that

00:49:25--> 00:49:31

began bringing the stones what you brought him with me and he brought him alayhis salam was building

00:49:33--> 00:49:39

so he was the assistant The Apprentice had Vienna until when

00:49:41--> 00:49:48

the building rose job he had an agile, he's smart even he said I'm brought this

00:49:50--> 00:49:51

stone

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

for what they're looking for camaraderie. So he placed it for him, but he's married in a certain place the stone

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

For Ibrahim alayhis, salaam, farmer Elena so even on him and his son, Amsterdam it

00:50:06--> 00:50:29

were Yemeni, and he continued to build at a higher level with smart Edo Yuna Jarrah and smart Isla de Salaam was handing him the bricks, the the stuffs, what am I up all around what and they were doing this father and son were building, father was constructing Ibrahim alayhis salam was

00:50:32--> 00:50:36

the carry of the bricks and he was assisting him

00:50:37--> 00:50:40

and whilst we're both doing this they will both pray

00:50:41--> 00:50:55

and then this is a verse of the Quran but as often happens in the Hadith only part of the verses mentioned have been at Oberlin in the middle and in our Lord except from this very Lee, you are all hearing all knowing

00:50:57--> 00:51:24

for Jana aren't vagina so he said they both began. Yep, neon continue continuing to build at diadora hollow bait until they circled around the house. Well, who am I up all down and as they continue to build, they were pregnant. last panel with Anna, Robin out of the midnight in the Kansas City ready our Lord except from us. Verily you are all hearing or knowing.

00:51:28--> 00:51:33

Something to think about here just on that verse, that both of them

00:51:35--> 00:51:37

are carrying out the most noble task,

00:51:38--> 00:51:40

building the house of Allah

00:51:42--> 00:51:43

and they are father and son.

00:51:46--> 00:52:01

And this is why when one of the famous curators of Hadeeth what he knew what he was a contemporary of Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah, one of the very early scholars were died in 153 after Hitler.

00:52:02--> 00:52:24

It was a contemporary of Imam hanifa Rahim Allah is one of the famous narrators of Muslim law hearing what he has mentioned in the narrations and so he Muslim as well as in a Buddha would determine the NSE Imam, Muslim, etc. So what hablen what a famous scholar of Hadith and

00:52:25--> 00:52:26

not just a PDF, but

00:52:28--> 00:52:30

remember the scholars of Islam.

00:52:32--> 00:52:39

We shouldn't think of them that they were specialists in one area and ignorant and the rest.

00:52:40--> 00:52:44

You could not be a scholar of Hadith without being a scholar.

00:52:49--> 00:53:16

And to think about the foot bahaar the jurists people like Imam, Abu hanifa, Imam, Mohammed Rashid, Bernie man will use that they were just for a heart, they were just jurists. I used to suggest that therefore they were ignorant of the Quran or the Hadith, as as I've often said about them. It's such a statement of ignorance in itself. They could not have been for a heart and Joost's without being masters of the Holy Quran. And

00:53:19--> 00:53:29

so anyway, well, he didn't and what this famous scholar, he would say, of this verse when reciting it, he would say as though he's addressing Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam, he would say,

00:53:30--> 00:53:39

may Allah have mercy on you in admiration? He would say, may Allah have mercy on you, old best friend of Allah, oh, man,

00:53:40--> 00:53:43

you are building the house of Allah.

00:53:44--> 00:53:48

And yet you are still fearful that alone accept your deeds.

00:53:52--> 00:54:01

That father and son are building the house have a law, and they are fearful that a law won't accept their sacrifice, alone won't accept their deeds,

00:54:02--> 00:54:04

just as the last season sort of them.

00:54:05--> 00:54:07

Well, Athena you tuna, Ma, Otto,

00:54:09--> 00:54:13

Mirage, those who give what they do give

00:54:15--> 00:54:23

whilst their hearts are fearful, trembling in fear, what do you like? trembling in fear? So, Shadow the alarm.

00:54:24--> 00:54:44

She asked the Prophet sallallahu It was about this verse. She said, Yeah, I saw the Lord does this verse mean that those who give what they give meaning of their deeds, so even meaning, a shot of the love on her, she did not fully understand the verse, Pamela.

00:54:47--> 00:54:55

She was the daughter of Abu Bakr, the Allah and she was extremely eloquent. She was someone well versed in poetry.

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

In fact, she she was so educated

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

She was well versed in medicine,

00:55:03--> 00:55:28

in poetry in the Arabic language. In Haiti. We have over 2000 Hadees related from meaning about the law and her, and she was extremely eloquent. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say of her. And I've heard eloquent, while after all, she is the daughter of Apple back and walk around the alarm was a scholar of the unsub lineages and genealogy.

00:55:32--> 00:55:33

So

00:55:37--> 00:56:01

being the daughter of a worker of the alarm, she was a paratus. She was extremely eloquent. And yet, even she could not understand the whole new Koran or certain verses, without recourse to the sort of loss in the law it was. So she said to him, O Messenger of Allah, does this verse mean, those who commit sins,

00:56:03--> 00:56:39

but they are still fearful of the last panel more than that they commit sins, but they are still fearful of Allah. So there's some good in them that they, in their weakness, they commit sins, but at the same time, they are fearful of the last panel what Allah she thought, that's what the verse means. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to her, no Daughter of Abu Bakr, this isn't the meaning. The meaning is those who pray and who give in charity, and who do good deeds, but their hearts are trembling in fear that Allah will not accept their deeds.

00:56:41--> 00:56:42

That's the meaning of the verse.

00:56:45--> 00:57:09

So these are the true believers. These are the sincere ones who pray, who given charity, who do good deeds, and whilst doing their good deeds, their hearts tremble in fear, they remain apprehensive that will in their humility that will allow except these Detroiters, Pamela, where are we from that we sinned without fearing

00:57:10--> 00:57:33

and the true believers of Allah perform good deeds whilst fearing that Allah will not accept their deeds? Ibrahim alayhis salam as well, he didn't. And Wilde said, may Allah have mercy on you, oh, man, Oh friend, dear friend of Allah, that you are building the house of Allah. And yet you are fearful that alone will not accept your building of the Kappa,

00:57:34--> 00:57:41

that both father and son are laying brick upon brick and continuously praying Robin at about midnight in

00:57:42--> 00:57:46

our Lord except from verily you are all hearing all knowing.

00:57:47--> 00:57:56

So they continue to pray these verses. This is what's building the gamma. This is where the Hadeeth ends. Now before

00:57:57--> 00:58:00

we finish, I just like to say that

00:58:02--> 00:58:05

I have not gone into the history.

00:58:06--> 00:58:13

Apart from what's very clear in the head ether have not gone into the history of the building of the gamba.

00:58:14--> 00:58:23

And many questions undoubtedly remain unanswered. When was a garbage first built? Was it Ibrahim alayhis salam or was it from the time of Adam it?

00:58:24--> 00:58:39

Or was it the angels? And what's the meaning of the verse and what are they doing? Well, the island nurse Illa de Baca, thermobaric como de Lille and I mean, that literally the first has to be established on Earth, for the guidance of mankind,

00:58:40--> 00:58:46

as a blessed house, and as a guidance for mankind, is the one surely in bucha, meaning the value of

00:58:49--> 00:58:50

a variation of the word.

00:58:51--> 00:58:55

So what's the meaning of that verse? Was it the first structure on earth?

00:58:56--> 00:59:35

Or not? So when was a gamma built? And when was it rebuilt? And what was the shape of the gamma the structure? Is it as we see it now? etc? What were the phases that you went through? So I haven't answered any of these questions because it requires some detail, and I thought that I would devote a session entirely to the virtues and history of the garba. And another session entirely to the virtues and the history of the war trumpism. And it's in the well, so because even that disappeared, and then was dug up again and discovered by

00:59:36--> 00:59:40

the family of loss or loss and the law while he was selling them. So

00:59:42--> 00:59:56

I will devote two separate sessions to each of these topics in Sharla. Next week, and the week after that we end with the Hadeeth here, allow me to just explain these final verses that are mentioned when Ibrahim alayhis

00:59:57--> 00:59:59

salaam were raising the Kava

01:00:00--> 01:00:22

This was only part of their their, their full two hour ones as a last season sort of Bukhara what you hear from Ebrahim on kawaii them in albedo is marine urban at Urban Mina in me or Eileen robina which Anam Slimane documentary Athena Metamucil better luck. Well, I didn't nomina second hour to Ballina in the cantata wobble regime. Open our back.

01:00:25--> 01:00:30

We are Lim homolka mathway is a key him in the country as is lacking.

01:00:31--> 01:00:37

Last season, remember when Ibrahim was raising the foundations of the house?

01:00:39--> 01:00:55

Both of them saying are abana Our Lord, except from his very you're all hearing all knowing and all our Lord, make us ones to submit to make as Muslims meaning the two of us father and we're saying our lawmakers both Muslim

01:00:56--> 01:01:08

and what's the meaning of Muslim here in other verses of the Quran? In the verses which I've just mentioned, for a Muslim, when they both submitted, Islam means submission.

01:01:10--> 01:01:12

So makers, those who submit

01:01:13--> 01:01:20

and not just as woman really Athena Mehta Muslim at the luck and from our children, from our

01:01:22--> 01:01:29

from our future generations, create and raise a nation that submits to

01:01:30--> 01:01:37

what I didn't have a second alto Ballina in the context of a human show was our rites and rituals of pilgrimage.

01:01:38--> 01:01:53

And relax. So as turned to as an immerse in an accepting verily You are the one who relents and is off turning to his servants, All Merciful, then a prayer for a messenger

01:01:55--> 01:01:59

Oh our Lord arrays from our future children

01:02:01--> 01:02:04

Rasulullah min a messenger from themselves,

01:02:05--> 01:02:11

who will recite to them your verses, and teach them the book and wisdom

01:02:12--> 01:02:14

and nurture.

01:02:16--> 01:02:36

Verily, you are the one who is all mighty, all wise. That was a prayer for their future children and for their, for a messenger from the children. There's a lesser great lesson in that to see what they pray for. See what the do out of the MBR alayhi wa sallam was was always

01:02:38--> 01:02:59

they would not pray for the dunya for themselves, they would pray for the hereafter for their children, they would pray for the hereafter. And this is the condition of the true believers, that God teaches us. the prayers of the prophets, teachers, what should be our concern, not only for ourselves, but even for our children.

01:03:01--> 01:03:23

What do the believers say? Who are the believers that Allah praises in the Quran in surah Furqan. His servants a badass man, the servants of the Most Compassionate part of their prayer is robina hublin amin as Virgina was oviya Tina Pura terrarium which unknotting with the peanut your mama, Oh our Lord granters of our spouses

01:03:25--> 01:03:28

and our children, the coolness of the eyes.

01:03:31--> 01:03:34

Would you subpoena your mama and makers?

01:03:35--> 01:03:36

An example

01:03:39--> 01:03:55

for those who have Taqwa? ulead for those who have meaning what does that what does this verse teaches? Parents the true believers are those who pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala for their own guidance, that they can be a good wife and a mom a good example for their children

01:03:57--> 01:04:00

and that their children become

01:04:01--> 01:04:02

good,

01:04:03--> 01:04:09

so good that they are the coolness of their eyes, and the coolness of the eyes does not mean

01:04:11--> 01:04:16

wealth dunya it means the coolness of the eyes.

01:04:18--> 01:04:27

As far as the Hereafter is concerned, a true believer is pleased, just as the prophets were pleased when their children followed in their footsteps.

01:04:31--> 01:04:45

Otherwise, if we are only concerned about the dunya then we may give our children dunya. But will they grow up to be the coolness of our eyes? Or will they grow up to be a curse?

01:04:48--> 01:04:51

If we instill these values in our children,

01:04:52--> 01:04:59

then they will grow up to be the cornice of our lives. If we do not lead them along the path of Allah is that a source of knowledge

01:05:00--> 01:05:01

Already who was selling them,

01:05:02--> 01:05:05

then we will have no one to blame but ourselves

01:05:06--> 01:05:07

in this culture,

01:05:08--> 01:05:15

respect is fast disappearing, and this is not a minor thing. We are young Now, many of us,

01:05:16--> 01:05:20

many of us are younger, some of us are old. But

01:05:21--> 01:05:33

now the culture is such, and there is no respect for parents, even in their middle age, what will happen in their old age? Will they be shunted

01:05:34--> 01:05:35

into

01:05:36--> 01:05:38

old people's homes?

01:05:42--> 01:05:44

I read a story many years ago

01:05:50--> 01:05:50

about

01:05:52--> 01:05:54

this was in many, many years ago,

01:05:55--> 01:06:06

in the US, there was a horrendous crime that took place. And the crime was that an elderly couple

01:06:09--> 01:06:24

were battered to death in their wheelchairs. So not in bed, they were both in their wheelchairs. And they were both severely beaten to death. Both both elderly,

01:06:26--> 01:06:30

extremely old, vulnerable, weak and disabled,

01:06:31--> 01:06:36

has been on my partner's they were both beaten to death in their wheelchairs.

01:06:38--> 01:06:42

Obviously, the details of the whole crime was shocking. And

01:06:43--> 01:06:44

do you know what was

01:06:47--> 01:06:48

even more shocking?

01:06:51--> 01:06:54

Eventually, the perpetrators of the crime are called.

01:06:56--> 01:06:58

And they happen to be

01:07:00--> 01:07:17

the elderly couple's own son and daughter, with their friends, who had gangs who had all become part of the plot to kill their parents in order to claim their life insurance.

01:07:19--> 01:07:26

And then for me, what was extremely shocking and would be for all of us, is that the elderly couple and their children almost.

01:07:33--> 01:07:35

This is what Lumia dust is.

01:07:38--> 01:07:40

As I mentioned last week, and before

01:07:43--> 01:07:51

the fish in their jar highly respected their parents more than some of us respect our parents in Islam.

01:07:57--> 01:08:11

Now we have a duty to instill these values in our children. We will witness the curse of the children not in the art era, but even before the Adhan, in the dunya in our old age, not just in our old age, even in our middle age.

01:08:12--> 01:08:17

Now, it's it's become all become very humorous. You'll see this label or this

01:08:19--> 01:08:26

quippy quotes saying that Be kind to your children because they will be the ones who will choose your retirement home.

01:08:29--> 01:08:57

So the parent of the prophets of Allah, just like the true believers of Allah, as Allah mentions in the Koran, they prayed for themselves that they would be a good example. And for their children, just as in that verse have sort of been forgotten which I've read that this is what the believers pray for. This is what ebrahimian salaam prayed for Allah make us Muslim, meaning Ibrahim made me Muslim, this may even make me Muslim alayhis salaam, and make our children muslims for you too.

01:08:58--> 01:09:04

And then not only that, but from our future children raise a messenger from them.

01:09:05--> 01:09:33

The long afterwards the US still worrying about the future generations of their progeny and children that let there be let them be guided, raise a messenger from them. And who was that messenger water Prophet, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is why my humble relates for the youth and as Muslims, and so delivers from a number of companions of the alarm, including a wall mama bear, and alliterative are the Saudia but the alarm

01:09:35--> 01:09:38

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

01:09:39--> 01:09:40

that

01:09:41--> 01:09:43

this is a genuine meaning of

01:09:44--> 01:09:52

the from all of these companions that I am or the beginning of my affair was that our to be Ibrahim

01:09:53--> 01:09:59

Bushra is the I Am the prayer of my father Ibrahim

01:10:00--> 01:10:17

Glad tidings of my glad tidings of the prophets Isa, and a dream that my mother saw when she conceived me that from her stomach alight, Shawn that engulf the palaces of Sha

01:10:20--> 01:10:22

so I am the prayer of my father Hebrew

01:10:23--> 01:10:30

and the glad tidings of Isa. And what was that glad tiding as Allah mentions in sort of stuff

01:10:31--> 01:10:43

with binary seven to me Ebony's that are either in needle so la equal, what's up the condom Albania de Minato Omar Bashir, Amira souligne team embarrassed to admit that

01:10:44--> 01:10:50

and remember when he speaks of pneumonia, he saw the son of money himself or children of Israel.

01:10:51--> 01:10:54

Verily, I'm LA's messenger to you.

01:10:56--> 01:11:00

The Prophet Isa Li his Salaam was not sent to the whole of mankind.

01:11:02--> 01:11:13

He was sent specifically to his people. This is why he said, and remember, as the last Asian remember when he saw the son of Miriam said, open source are eternal children of Israel,

01:11:14--> 01:11:16

in the civil law in a

01:11:17--> 01:11:53

large messenger to and as is quoted in the Bible, God, not the way of the Gentiles, but rather into the lost sheep of Israel. The words of he said, he said, as quoted in the Bible, as we have it today, go not the way of the Gentiles, but rather into the lost sheep of Israel, meaning he was a messenger sent to been with Elan only to begin with, sorry, he was never sent as a universal messenger to all the peoples of the world. So last age, remember when he saw the son of William said, Oh, when we saw he, Verily, Allah His Messenger T.

01:11:55--> 01:12:07

I couldn't affirm that the law that came before me, and I come to give you as a bearer of glad tidings of a messenger who shall come after me whose name is

01:12:08--> 01:12:41

and this is the one place in the Quran where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has only mentioned by name five times, four times as Mohammed. And here one says, Ahmed, and as I've explained in detail before, the meaning is Mohammed The one who is the most praised and Ahmed Mohammed, the one who is the most praised in the whole of creation. And the one who have the whole of creation is the most praising of the Create.

01:12:43--> 01:12:52

And that's our salsa, love, it was full of praise. It is Muhammadan added, praise the most by everyone including Bartlett's panel.

01:12:53--> 01:13:13

And he is the one who praises a lot the most, what can a few cartoons or a few disparaging poems due to the honor and the dignity of the sort of love the love it, some of them when a large panel with Allah has blessed him in such a manner and the whole oma is is for that is his ransom.

01:13:15--> 01:13:23

So what's the messenger that Ibrahim alayhis salaam prayed for that? I am, he said, the prayer of my father,

01:13:24--> 01:13:27

Ibrahim, and I am the glad tidings of Isa

01:13:28--> 01:13:39

and country Teresa Lee Salaam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, some may assume that Ibrahim alayhis salaam said raise from amongst them, a messenger to them

01:13:41--> 01:14:01

or a messenger raised amongst them a messenger from them that did he only come from the Arabs some people have suggested that the prophets only came from the Arabs now in the last panel with Allah Satan's Well yeah, you're now NASS in Nero su la in a gymea Allah de la la la la la

01:14:03--> 01:14:07

la la la jolla. He will you meet for amin will

01:14:08--> 01:14:33

be mean that you're gonna be la Kalamata. Ooh, La, La La Quinta de doom. Allah says commanding the messenger Salam Alikum. Sunder saying that all mankind Oh, people are very I'm allows messenger to all of you. And the verse continues, and it tells us follow him Pleven him, follow him in the hope that you may find guidance. So he was glad tiding of his

01:14:34--> 01:14:41

brother he sallallahu Sallam and he was the result of a dream seen by his mother when she conceived.

01:14:42--> 01:14:48

That alight Shawn from her, which engulfed even the palaces of Shannon.

01:14:49--> 01:14:59

Of course, people did not understand. Just as the monarchy boom the hypocrites did not understand when in the trench, the prophets of the love

01:15:00--> 01:15:04

It was it was called this How about the alarm and we're trying to dig a bolt

01:15:05--> 01:15:33

and they couldn't break it. So the call the prophets and the law it was a long story. He struck the boulder once a light emitted, shining, blinding light. And then how about have the loved one who exclaimed Allahu Akbar. And then a second one, a second piece broke off law again, a light shining lava, and then finally the whole boulder crumbled. Then the prophets, the prophets, the love it was imagine the scene is covered in dust.

01:15:35--> 01:15:37

He has a pickaxe in his hand.

01:15:38--> 01:16:02

The boulder lies crushed before him. Some of us have are with him in the trench, and there's a whole Horde and multitude of people on both sides of the trench above, and they're all staring down. And amongst them are the hypocrites, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while standing there saying is that when I struck the boulder alight Shannon in it, I saw the palaces of Russia.

01:16:03--> 01:16:12

And other like shaman in it, I saw the palaces of Persia. And then he mentioned the third referring to Yemen and Africa.

01:16:13--> 01:16:45

So the, or, Ah, sorry, the hypocrites. They smiled, and walked away in disgust, and began muttering that we are so fit, it's so cold, it's we are so fearful. We are under siege. And we are living in such fear and under such a siege, that one of us can't go out even to answer the call of nature for the fear of being killed, and here stands Mohammed promising as the palaces of Rome and perish. So they never

01:16:47--> 01:17:13

and Allah did not want that for his resorcinol Allahu Allahu wa sallam. That's why before any wealth flowed into the coffers of Medina, before the palaces were conquered, before the royal courts were received before the treasures were received. Before the dunya was brought to Medina, Allah took his messenger away. But it was not befitting him Allah. It was not befitting.

01:17:16--> 01:17:25

So what he didn't understand word spread when his mother saw the stream, but the police didn't understand. Neither did the hypocrites and Stan, but we understand.

01:17:27--> 01:17:53

So this was he was the dream that his mother saw. So what's the messenger did Allah raise as an answer to the door out of season, Abraham alayhis salam, there is a great lesson for all of us. And the law ends that section by saying Armenia to Hubble, I'm miletti Brahimi, Lamin Sufi, and that's what I call this the fee now for dunya. We're in North Africa that that a man is sorry, he is part of the horrible palace.

01:17:55--> 01:18:06

This is the message from the whole story of Brahim alayhis salaam, beautiful verse to end with. Allah says after the death of Ibrahim in the set of verses in the Koran, and who will turn away

01:18:08--> 01:18:57

from the traditional Ibrahim from the religion of Ibrahim, except one who makes a fool of himself. And verily we selected him in the dunya. And in the Hereafter, he is one of the pious when his Lord said to him, a slim Submit. And he said, I slumped a little bit further mean, I have submitted to the Lord of the worlds. That is the legacy of the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam, submission, and he is the one who named as Muslims. This is the meaning of being Muslim. This is the meaning of Islam and those who are truly those who truly submit to Allah, just as liberal humanism or aliens landed, Allah will honor them in the dunya and in the US, and they shall be in the company of the

01:18:57--> 01:19:12

profits of me lawmakers amongst them. I ended with this was a Lola was in America and he was sued in the Vietnam hammered while he was here Jemaine Stronach a lot more me the conditional alert, you know, in the US the federal court on a two way Lake
