Love, love, love, love.
Love al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah who are either early or sahbihi woman who Allah will begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala, praising him always and we request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to our brothers and sisters in Islam, Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. I greet you with the greetings of Islam and peace in the greetings of the people of Paradise and welcome you all to episode number five of our short little hedger series together titled hedge and the family, common foundations brought to you courtesy of the Islamic Council of Europe. For today's episode, brothers and sisters in Islam, I
want to expand on a small point, nonetheless important point that we discussed in our last session that session was an episode was dedicated towards the importance of the family unit, having a selfless project for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we took that idea from how Ibrahim alayhis salam is married early Salaam, Boubacar together. And then I highlighted what Allah told us in the Quran that as they went through this project, they went down to Allah collectively and said, Our Lord, except from us our deeds, except from us. This action and
this is going to be the focus of today's episode. No doubt it has to be due to our brothers and sisters in Islam. Why? Because brothers and sisters in Islam, the hedge is all about die, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said I'll head you out of it. If I can eloquently translate the statement he is saying there's nothing about hedge except arafa sallallahu alayhi wasallam and there's nothing about arafa except do right do is the main aspect of alpha, where you have this woof you you you you from midday till sunset you.
You know you bring yourself together with all your mind and all your ability and you beg from Allah subhanho wa Taala His forgiveness and you seek from him his bounty subhanho wa Taala upon yourself and your loved ones and the Ummah at large. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is proud of his slaves on the day that despite the tightness and difficulty they are, you know, exerting this effort asking from Allah subhanho wa Taala seeking from Allah subhanho wa Taala there are as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us is the essence of all of worship, and it is the weapon of a believer and as the pious before us is to say brothers and sisters in Islam, if you want Allah to
speak to you read the Quran, and if you want to speak to Allah make dua Subhana Allah now along with this, you know, there has to be pivotal because really brothers and sisters in Islam, all success, all transformation, right? Everything amazing. That journey begins with with Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever you want to achieve that journey begins with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And today we have the self help industry with billions and self help gurus popping up a dime a dozen, Allah, right. And they talk about success, and they talk about progress. And they talk about transformation. And they talk about being the best that you can be but do they ask you to ask him Allah subhanho wa Taala? Or
he will jenelle or wahaca Ha? How can you be successful if your journey doesn't start with the source of perfection for allies As salam, O Allah is a Salam. He is the perfect one. And from who all perfection stems from subhanho wa Taala. Right. And that's what Allah says in the Quran, in terms of those who want to be purified and they want to progress and be transformed and have greater Eman and so on and so forth. Allah says buddy lead who use a key measure in another verse, while lacking the law use a key measure. But what I cannot use a key measure but it is Allah who purifies when he will, that's the source of purification. Nay It is Allah who purifies whom he was in another
verse because Allah is the source of purification. So to refrigerate Allah subhanho wa Taala says while I can Allah have Baba la cama amen was the Yana who fiocco become but it is Allah who made Eman beloved to you and beautified it to you and in your heart worker raha la kumoko for our Su Su COVID ASEAN and it is Allah who made sending an immorality and disobedience hated to you and hated in your heart. It's from Allah subhanho wa Taala so brothers and sisters in Islam who want to have an amazing family unit, we have to be making to it Allah subhanho wa Taala starting with the parents, and they be role models for the children and the children grow up seeing their parents
turning to Allah begging from Allah so the children recognize from an early age Subhan Allah La hawla wala quwata illa Billah there's no power no matter except from Allah. If we want success, we have to do what we saw our parents doing, turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala not forgetting as well. Brothers and sisters in Islam Subhana Allah how powerful the death of a parent is for his or her child and how powerful they are. Our husband is for his wife and a wife for her husband. SubhanAllah right. So we all want to have togetherness we all want to have Unity we all want to have love. And we want all these values to increase so that this family is not a family for life but a family for
lifetime, a family that yearns to be together in general after they pass away, and a family that has individuals that miss each other after each member passes away. It starts with to our brothers and sisters in Islam and we see Subhan Allah do as of Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam, revealed by Allah subhanho wa Taala to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam In fact, we have an entire surah in the Quran, named after Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and Allah subhanho wa Taala. He mentions many of the daughters of Ibrahim from them. Ibrahim Alayhi Salam saying, what is called Eva her or him or bijur la bella de m ino genu Bernie Bernie Yan, boodle Allah
Subhana Allah, Ibrahim alayhi salam, Allah is when Ibrahim may do ah he turned to Allah and said oh my lord Subhana Allah, oh my lord ajl hodel bellet make Mecca I am in a place of safety, a place of serenity make it a sanctuary. And then he says what you know Binney were Benny and Naboo tell us now he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect him and his children from worshipping idols, Subhan Allah Subhana Allah and then he also says, are a beggar Ali mopey, masala tea wamu Realty Subhan Allah, He says, oh my lord, oh my lord La ilaha illa Allah make me from amongst those who pray and my children from amongst those who observe the salah and are dedicated upon Salah La ilaha illa
Allah, these are just some of the doctrines of Ibrahim alayhi salam. So the point brothers and sisters in Islam, we have to be making a lot of dua for for our well being and the well being of our families. We turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we ask Allah we say Robin I have been an admin as well as you now will react in a quarter it was a little bit cleaner mm as Allah reveals at the end of circle forecast, right?
At the beginning of the 20th juice, right, so we will make this data loss of Hannah worth Allah did Allah grant me from my from my spouse and my children, the coolness of my eyes, the coolness of my eyes, when I look at them, panel, I feel peace, I feel serenity I feel happiness, right? Would you lean with tacchini mama Subhana Allah and make us to the believers, leaders. And honestly, if you contemplate over this, how Allah subhanho wa Taala makes the first part of the dua dedicated towards having a strong family unit. And then the second part of the duo are dedicated towards being a leader to the believers. This teaches his brothers and sisters in Islam. If you want to be
beneficial to the leaders, it starts as very beneficial to the oma leaders to the oma. It starts by raising a home upon the mandates of Kala Kala Rasul upon the mandates of what Allah has revealed and what is Rahul has taught salallahu alayhi wa sallam raising a home that has family members, beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala family members that will be a solution for humanity, raising children who will be amazing husbands tomorrow, amazing wives tomorrow, amazing parents tomorrow, amazing members of society tomorrow, tomorrow, not a burden upon the dilemma of tomorrow, don't raise a son that will abuse his wife or a daughter that will abuse her role as a mother and a wife Subhanallah and
then they will in turn raise children who will be even worse than they were when a How would our quwata illa Don't be that brothers and sisters in Islam, right be a solution for humanity by raising children that will also be the coolness of the Imams and Misha eyes in that generation that when these Imams and Messiah and leaders look to your children when they are older, they will say Subhan Allah we wish we had millions of them because they are a means they are a solution for for humanity. And let's not forget that getting to that stage begins with that too. And that's where Allah subhanho wa Taala in the verse in Surah Furqan when he highlights to us the importance of the family
unit in terms of us being leaders to humanity. He starts off that whole process by teaching us of the DA Habana Habana mean as well. Jeanette was already yet in a kurata Allah bless us with wives and children with spouses and children who will be the coolness of our eyes I leave you with these words. And until next time, cinema alikum Love, love
Allah, Allah Allah
