sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
brothers and sisters in Islam. We continue with our ledger diaries, and this is the fifth installment. And once again, we take a lesson from the lessons of the life of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and the hijab and the days of the hijab, especially the first
set of the hedges. And in particular, that could be the famous takbeer Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar La ilaha illAllah who Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allah.
Right, there's different versions to it. Sometimes you can say three times at the beginning or sometimes you make you set meaning you say Allahu Akbar three times at the beginning or sometimes three times before the end.
All this is established in the Sunnah I've just shared with you one underrated version, and a rough translation of it would be Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater. Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater meaning greater than everything La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, there is no one with your worship besides Him, He is greater love Akbar, he is greater when he let him Hamed and to Him and for Him belongs all praise. Now.
It's It is said that this view stems from
the life of Ibrahim alayhi salam, and in particular, in particular, when he was
fulfilling the command of sacrificing his son No, no doubt, this is a massive, massive,
you know, test upon a human being the most beloved matter to a parent is his or her child. And for those who follow the life of Ibrahim, you would see that, you know, he started making in earnest for a child because for a long time Allah didn't give him a child. And his main objective from wanting to have a child was because he sincerely felt that he was the only one on earth who truly worshipped Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he wanted a child who would continue this message, so that the, you know, the light of guidance and the beacon of light would continue to exist, even after Ibraheem alehissalaam So now, here, you have a situation where you have your child, and then you told to drop
him in the middle of nowhere and now, okay, Alhamdulillah, you pass this test, and then the father sees a dream
you know, over a period of time, and he understands from it that he needs to
sacrifice his son and in fact, since we're talking about the days of the hedger, it is said that, Ibraheem alehissalaam started seeing, you know, these dreams around, you know, the fourth, the fifth, the sixth, or the fifth, the sixth and the seventh of the hedger. And then, on the eighth of the ledger, he began contemplating the dream. And, you know,
really giving it this importance and
due diligence because he felt that this was not just any dream, but it was revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And some scholars say the eighth of the ledger, which is the first day the Hajaj go to Mina, which is also known as Yom atheria. They say from the meanings of Korea is, Euro we are we attend, this means to play something back to contemplate, to play something over and over again in your mind to contemplate over something over and over again. So this is what he began doing. And then on the ninth of the hedgerow, which we call the date of arafa. And arafa means to know, they say that Ibrahim knew what he had to do. He knew that this was not just a dream, but Revelation,
this is called the Armada, and then on the 10th, which known as Yeoman. Now, the day of sacrifice, this was the day that Ibrahim Put the knife to the neck of his son, right? Now, you can imagine, you know, this whole emotion, this whole area, this is a human being dealing with another human being. In fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions to us this whole, you know, strategy that Ibraheem alehissalaam used that he gave you some sort of BIA and development and waited for the right moment Allah says, you know, in in sort of soft fat
about this, this incident between Ismail Ali Salaam and Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and the conversation for Lama Bella Hama who say that you know, when Ismail alayhis salam, you know, reached,
you know, the circumstances situation to comprehend and understand and, and act proactively upon this great trial and test that Allah subhanho wa Taala was, was going to release to him, polycarbonate. Ibrahim then spoke to his son and said, Oh, my dear son in niara, hilman me me as bearhawk Indeed, I continuously see my dream that I'm slaughtering you, and it's
Continuous matters. You know, every dream of slaughtering you. This is a revelation from Allah of Andromeda. Tara, what do you think my son? Now some Hanalei it's like you know, when when you build somebody up and you're confident that they're gonna say the right thing, right? And obviously he's a father, you know, it's gonna make his life easier by something that I think rather than, you know, doing it without any conversation, and he waits in earnest to hear what his son will say in his marriage, say Subhan Allah. Yeah, Bertie, Oh my dear father, if I were to not do what Allah has commanded you commanded you to do, so that you do need insha Allah, you will find me you will
continuously find me God willing, from the patient. So now, here, Ibraheem alehissalaam takes his son out of Makkah towards what we know today as Mina, and you know, he's training himself he's doing this takbeer reminding himself Allah is greater Allah is greater. There's no one worthy of worship besides Allah. Allah is greater greater than me, Brahim greater than my son is married. Greater than my desire is greater than my wishes greater than y is greater than my fantasies. This is the reality of my Lord. Right? He's training himself Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater the greatest will allow him famous will praise and he constantly does this until he has to sharpen the knife. Imagine him
sharpening the knife looking at his son lying down flat, and he sharpening the knife knowing what's going to happen. Right. And in his mind, it was going to happen this was the command right and he has to teach himself Allah is greater Allah is greater than me greater than my desire is greater than my love for his marriage greater than what I want. Everything is from Allah and to alive within will return. This is the reality of the stock. We're brothers and sisters that we are repeating throughout the days of the hedger, we should be repeating it from the first of the ledger until the 13th in an unrestricted manner, as the scholars say, and then yes, we have the restricted manner,
which is after every Salah for those who are not on Hajj, from the ninth of the hedgerow until the 13th, from fudger of the ninth until after of the 13th right, and we'll touch on that on another lesson. But they understood that that will happens throughout the days of,
of the legend. When we say this takbeer we need to teach ourselves Allah is greater than all the sins that we do, Allah is greater than all the desires that we have, is greater than all the whims and fancies that we lean towards La Ilaha Illa there's no one worthy of worship besides one Allah. We don't worship our desires. We don't worship our money. We don't worship our ego, we don't worship our desires, we worship Allah Allah, La ilaha illa Allah there is no one worthy of worship besides Him. Allahu Akbar is the greatest will rely on him. for Him belongs all praise. Brothers and sisters, this is a lesson we must take from these days of Hajj, this training of ourselves is not
just lip service to the vicar lip service to you know, the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But it should be said with meaning with emotion and developing ourselves as a result of it really understanding and believing what our you know what is present on our tongue. This is a lesson for that, you know, we share in this diary in this fifth installment of our ledger diaries for those who are not on hedge and for those who are on hedge and for those who are not on hedge send this to those who are on hedge after you practice it yourself because the judge themselves also from around the 10th of the hedge, they will be announcing this takbeer Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar La ilaha
illallah wa Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Allah Hamed. This is yet another lesson from the life of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is married Alayhi Salam and this further proves the attachment of these
two notables to the month of the hedger that we are in that houses the fifth pillar of Islam the Hajj inshallah, in upcoming episodes, we'll discuss, you know,
a little bit more about the restrictive takbeer and the unrestricted tech view. And then we want to also tap into other lessons from the life of Ibrahim is married, and how we can use them now in the 21st century to develop ourselves especially during this Blizzard days. Until then, salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
