I want you to respond back louder so that I can hear you inshallah, let's try that again. Assam Arvind Kumar Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh
Mashallah barakallahu Pico May Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah bless you all. I have with me behind the camera Abdullah and he is 10 years old and I have met and he is seven years old and I have little Khadija How old are you? 35 right. Five. How old are you? Are you three years old? Masha Allah, Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless all the children, the children here and the children all the way there behind the camera. And together myself and Abdullah and Ahmed and Khadija we welcome you to the young learners hub where we will inshallah build agenda together every episode insha Allah and I would love to know where you are joining from. So please let me know via the live
chat. Okay, there's a live chat option on your screens, please let me know where you're joining from inshallah, because having knowledge of that will be beloved to me. Now, at the beginning, I began this episode reciting something in Arabic, okay. And what I said in Arabic was basically three things I said three things in the Arabic language number one, I asked a lot of Anahata Allah to bless our program together. Now what do I mean by blessing our program together? I asked Allah subhanahu Allah to make our program together even more special, and asked Allah Subhana Allah to grant us even more rewards because more rewards means what Khadija? It means a bigger,
a bigger house in general, isn't it? And a bigger gentleness I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless our program. Then I asked Allah Subhana Allah also
to assist us after I praise Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then I also ask Allah Subhana Allah to sing praises and blessings to and upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for a pseudo loss of a loved one, and he will sell them. He's our teacher, and he is our master. And he's our leader, and everything that we will be learning in this episode and the episodes to come in sha Allah will you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us so we will be learning from the teachings that he Salallahu alaihe salam Sallam
taught us Alhamdulillah. Now,
some people said when I announced this program, they said that jack said, this is a very strange program that you are doing for the children. They said it's a strange program. I said, why is this strange? Well, we are used to teaching the big people, you're always teaching the big people. You're always passing Islamic rulings, and you're doing all the serious stuff. And now you're doing a program for the children. And I said to them, no, just the opposite. It's just the opposite. We must have a program for our boys and girls as well. Why? Well, firstly, because Islam teaches us that our boys and girls each and every one of you here, and each and every one of you out there, you are our
today, and you are our tomorrow. This is what Islam teaches us. Right? Islam also teaches us that our boys and girls are so special, and they are so valuable, right? That's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us, that's what the Quran teaches us that each and every one of you, you are so special, you are so valuable. And that is why I have a great belief in you all that each and every one of you can achieve whatever you put your minds to, yes, isn't it? Whatever you put your mind to, whatever you want to achieve, you can achieve it because Allah created you. He gave you a brain. He gave you a heart, he gave you your body, right? He gave you your mind, right?
And you believe in Allah and you believe in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So whatever you want to achieve, you can achieve it and that's what makes you all so special and so valuable. Also, number three, it's important that we teach the young boys and young girls because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself. He taught the big people and he also taught the children he taught the young boys and young girls as well. That's what Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam did, and we need to follow him
I must tell you who taught us that if we weren't allowed to live x, then we need to follow
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right, we need to follow Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So it's the opposite, right? We must have a program for our young boys and young girls, especially during the lockdown, right? Especially since schools closed and addresses are closed, and I pray that inshallah we can go gender together through our programs together over the next three weeks, and inshallah Allah gathers us in gentlemen together, just as Allah has gathered us here, via the internet, in these episodes, okay, now this week, and because of the big people asking me, why am I teaching, or it's strange that I'm teaching the small people lessons every day. I want to teach
you all this week. lessons about small people, young people that did amazing things. They also did big things. They were people that were small, but some heinola they change the world. And they were people that no one believed in and Subhanallah they also they changed the world, right? To make the world such a better place. inshallah, everyday during this week, Monday to Friday, we will be learning together lessons about people from our history, who were small or people that no one believed in. But upon Allah, they did amazing things. They did amazing things. And today we want to start learning about
Ibrahim Ibrahim alayhis salam insha Allah. So we're gonna learn about Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam because Ibrahim Alayhi Salam did amazing things. Now Ibrahim Alayhi Salam he was born in a place near Babylon. And in the language we call this place Bab. Okay, now no one really knows exactly when he was born. And this many different dates that the historians the people he mentioned regarding exactly when he was born. But on average, we can say that he was born around 2000 years before he said he Salam was born. Okay, so Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was born around 2000 years before he said he
was born. Now. Babylon is the English name. And in Arabic, we say Babel Babel. And during this time, there was a king who was ruling many places and his name was num root. What was his name? named Ruth, but in English, he is known as Nimrod. He is known as Nimrod and Ibraheem alehissalaam he was growing up in this place with his father with other people. And Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam, he knew that he had to create, right because when Allah subhanahu angeliki, all of us when we were born inside of us, they will believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala is our Creator, right? And he is the Oh, we shouldn't worship anyone besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam knew this. And
he brought him and he said, I knew that as a little boy he had a mind and who gave him that mind? I love that mind. Ibrahim knew as a little boy, he had a heart who gave him that Allah and Ibrahim Alayhi Salam knew as a little boy that he had a soul who gave him that soul. Allah right. So was he clever? Yes, you have to be clever because who created him? Allah subhanho wa Taala created him now we brought him mighty Salim had a problem and it wasn't a little problem, it will be a big problem. What was the problem
is people are worshipping idols, and not just these people but his own father. And he had an even bigger problem because not only was his father worshipping idols, but his father used to make the idols What did his father used to do?
Make the idols with his own hands. Now, what is worshipping idols mean? say someone is worshipping an idol? What does it mean?
You have to speak up so everyone can hear you behind the camera.
The worshipping false gods, where did these gods come from?
Where did they come from? People have What did they do? used to be?
So people made these structures out of stones and other materials and then they used to worship them. They used to worship them. That's what worshiping idols means. Say.
Khadija just told us that idols Allah, the people are worshipping them. Look, it doesn't even make sense to her. He does a little Milan. She's three years old, isn't it? Right? So Ibrahim Alayhi Salam
So Pamela is saying that how is it possible that we have a mind? And we still worshipping actors? Right? Allah gave me a mind. I can't accept people worshipping idols. I know my father's doing it. I know everyone else is doing it. Everyone is doing this, but it doesn't make sense to me. Now, who should I be? Who should I be someone who just does things because everyone is doing it? Or should I be someone who uses the mind? shallaki is the heart which Allah gave me, right? We use the mind and we use the heart. And I think, what's the right thing to do? Right? Because it can't be that the right thing is what everyone does. The right thing has to be what makes sense? Correct? So Ibraheem
alehissalaam he was thinking for a while, and he said, You know what, I need to go speak to my father, I need to go speak to my father. So he went to his father, and he respectfully lovingly said to his father, all my dear father, oh, my daddy, right? That's what we
say Baba, we say Daddy, right? We say, Father, he said to his father, so nicely, oh, my dear father, oh, my dear father.
Why do you worship that which cannot speak that which cannot listen, that which cannot give you anything, it can't help you. It can't harm you. Why do you worship these things? My dear father, he said he spoke to his father so nicely. He wasn't rude, right? He didn't go to his father and say, what's wrong with you? Can Jesus your brains?
Here, he didn't listen to the people. He went and spoke to them nicely. He went and spoke his father beautifully. You spoke to his father caringly. Yes, Khadija caringly. Exactly. And he said, Why do you worship these things? It doesn't benefit you. It doesn't make sense to me. He said, Oh, my dear father, I think I think I am right. And I think what everyone else is doing is wrong. So please, my dear father, everyone else has forgotten. I think that that's what he was saying. So what happens? Primarily, Sam's father was listening. And then Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam said, My dear father, don't agree upon I think worshipping idols is because of shape and if we worship idols, we follow in shape
or don't follow shape or shape pan is a clear enemy to us. Why did he bring money Sam's father do Ibrahim alayhis salaam his father became angry, he became so cross and he said keep Rahim. Allah, he said, You better stop saying what you say. You better not tell me this again. Okay, right. And if you carry on speaking like this, I'm going to punish you.
I'm going to punish you. Now. Obviously, Ibrahim, my father. He has worshipping idols because he saw his father worshipping idols. And his father worshipped idols because he saw his father worshipping idols. They weren't really thinking and Ibrahim alayhi salam, this young boy just like you, you are young boys and girls, he was thinking, right? So they weren't thinking when he was thinking, and Ibrahim alayhis salaam no doubt. Why did he become sad? Because he felt to Pamela my own father is not doing the right thing. But Ibrahim Ali Salim didn't want to give up. He says, I'm not gonna give up. My father said I can talk to him. I have to listen to him. So I'm not gonna speak to him again.
But I'm going to try and do something else to make him think now these people had a dream of he will you know we like to do a reading right? What's the deal read? There we go and celebrate. So everyone was going to go far away to celebrate and they came to the Brahim IV salah and they said to him, it Salah It was a boy his father came to read. But Ibraheem alehissalaam says no, I'm not feeling well. He said, I'm not feeling well. Okay, was he lying?
But was he sick? No, he wasn't sick. But he said he's not feeling well. So is that I was because he wasn't sick. And he's telling them I'm sick.
Abdullah wants to tell us something. Go ahead. Abdullah.
Ibrahim Alayhi Salam wasn't saying that I am really sick, I have a flu or I have a cold or I have a cough. Ibraheem alehissalaam was saying I feel sick of people worshipping idols, that's what he meant. So he wasn't telling lies. He wasn't saying I'm physically sick. He was saying I'm sick of people worshipping idols. Alright, right. So they left him behind. When they all went away. Ibraheem alehissalaam went to the place where they kept all the idols and he took an axe of some instrument.
He started smashing all the idols into pieces that Allah Subhana Allah tells us in the Quran, he started smashing all the all the idols into pieces, except one idol, which one, the big one, and he took this axe and he placed it by the big one.
And he destroyed the big one. Well, we'll know soon when everyone came back, and they saw all the idols smashed to pieces, the little boy smash it to pieces, obviously, they didn't know who did it, right. But they saw all the idols smashed to pieces. What did they do? They became angry, and they started screaming who did this to our idols? Who did this to our gods who disrespected our gods and smashed into pieces? So some people who stayed behind? They said, there's some boy who did it, we saw a boy going there. And people when they call him, they say Ibrahim, meaning he wasn't a famous boy, he was just a boy, like you just, you know, the young boys and young girls, not very famous.
But he was famous with a lot, right? Everyone wants to be famous on YouTube. And Google? No, you have to be famous with a lot. No one knew Abraham. He wasn't famous.
You can't be faced with shape. Ah, well, then. That's a fight. If you fight well, then you can't be famous with shavon. And you should be famous with Allah subhana wa T. And so the people didn't know who he was when I was kind of tired. I knew who Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was, he was famous with Allah. He was famous with the angels. So these people said, we don't know he's just this boy is a very famous, we don't know him, but when they call him they say Brahim. So everyone knew Ha. We know who did it. So they came to Rahim. And they were cross with Ibrahim. And they scold Ibrahim, and they said, did you do this to our idols? And he said, Why don't you ask the big one? Why are you asking
me, us? The big one, he's got the X.
button. Everyone knew that we can't ask the big one. These idols don't speak. They can't move. They can't harm anyone. They can benefit anyone. They can support anyone. They can listen to anyone. So for him, I said I was trying to make them think. And they knew that Ibrahim was right. And they were wrong. But they were arrogant. They became angry and they said, No, we have to support these idols because our fathers used to worship them. And we have to punish Ibrahim. They had to punish the prime. So what did they do?
They wanted to throw him inside the fire. But not just any fire. They said we want to build the big, big, big fire. Right? And our teachers, the teachers who taught us the meanings of the Quran, when they explained to us the ayat in the Quran, the is in the Quran, which we speak about Ibrahim alayhis salam, they say that the people gathered firewood for one whole month, for how long?
How many days in a month? They're around 30 days, right? So for one whole month, they get fired. Okay? Why? Because the more firewood you have, the hotter the fire will be. The more firewood you have, the hotter the fire will be.
Like, we're gonna come to that. The more firewood you have, the hotter the fire will be. And they gathered the logs for one month, and they lit it on fire. And the fire was burning so hot that the books of Islamic history say that birds couldn't even fly near it. If a bird flew over it, it will become what?
The bed would cook Subhanallah the bed would cook right.
The bed would would cook because the pie is so hot. So now they had a problem. They said how can we put the Brahim in the fire because we can't go close to the fire. We can't go close to the fire. So how are we going to put Ibrahim in the fire? He said let's build the catapult. Now a catapult is this machine that you built that you can put something in it and it can throw something far away? It's called a catapult All right. Do you guys know what a catapult is? Have you seen it? When we were small? We used to play with handheld catapults I don't know the young boys and girls of today. I don't think they they you guys use chemicals like like bows and arrows.
But it's different bows and arrows is much bigger. So it's the I suppose the handheld one is like a bow and arrow because of the handheld one you can throw stones far away using it. But this was a catapult that was big enough.
To throw to throw a person and they put it in the fire, and they tried Ibrahim and Ibrahim no doubt he was a young boy. He felt scared any young boy would feel But Abraham it Sam's heart was attached to look
louder. Everyone needs to hear you. He was an extra luck in mind was attached to who? To align. He knew that Allah will protect him. Right? So before they threw him, he said has to be a law who are near Milwaukee has to be available. When you're in Milwaukee What does has to be a loved one animal will kill me. He said a lot is enough for me. And a lot is the best protector. Nothing can hurt me. Except if I wanted to hurt me because Allah created everything. Nothing can hurt me, not even the Coronavirus. Everyone's talking about the Coronavirus now right? Right. All the schools are closed and everyone's in lockdown and people are going into isolation because of the Coronavirus can the
Coronavirus hurt me If Allah doesn't want you to let me know who is in control of everything. Ally is in control of everything. So Ibrahim Alayhi Salam said has to be a lover whatever the word King, Allah is enough for me. Allah is my protector, and Allah will protect me. And he when he before he went into the fire, Allah told the fire yeah know who he
was lm and Allah Rahim. Allah told the fire to be cool and safe. For who? For Ibrahim, and Ibrahim landed into the fire. And it was like, What like a garden. It was like a garden. He was in the fire. Everyone thought he was burning. But he was relaxed. He was smiling out the cool breeze. I mean, we can only imagine right because we don't know how it was but you can imagine might have been like he was in a nice Tango, like I don't know if the birds were there, but it could be like he was in a garden. And he was having nice trees around him and shade. Why? Because Allah said be safe and be cool for Ibrahim. Now I have a question for you guys. Why didn't allow only say, oh fire be cool for
Ibrahim. Why did Allah say oh faia be cool and safe for Ibrahim
to close to speak louder for for the boys and girls behind the camera.
Otherwise it would have been too cold for Abraham. So Pamela, right, though.
Right, because if you ain't in the fire and a lot of the fire to be cold, Ibrahim would have been shooting it via it would have been too cold. To allow the fire to be cold and be safe to be safe. That keep Ibrahim cool, but don't make him shiver. Right? Keep your brain cool and don't burn all the oxygen. We know that when there's fire. And is it easy for people to breathe when there's a fire or is it difficult for people to breathe? It's difficult for people to breathe. Smoke and write in the fire is too hot and you can't breathe you tend to suffocate a lot of the fire be cold. Be cool, be safe, right? Be Cool. Don't make it rain. Don't burn. But be safe. Don't make him sugar. Don't
make it difficult for him to breathe. Right. And Ibrahim knew that so panela the fire only burns if Allah wants it to burn. If a loved one wants to fight burn, can the fire burn? No, the fire can burn even though it's so hot.
A fire doesn't talk yet fire doesn't talk about a fire can burn, isn't it? A fire can burn. And if Allah doesn't want the fire to burn, can the fire burn? No, we can't burn. And this is the story for today about Ibrahim alayhi salam. Now remember we said boys and girls that we want to share this first story about Ibrahim alayhi salam to teach us all that no matter how small you are. No matter how small you are, you can do. You can do big things. You can do great things. No matter how small you are. No matter how young you are. Allah gave you a mind. Allah gave you the heart you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala you believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you can go wherever
you want to go. Right? wherever you want to go as long as you believe. And as long as you put your trust in Allah, you ask Allah to help you. And
you have to try. You have to try right? You can achieve everything you want to achieve. Look at Ibrahim alayhis salam, right, even though the people didn't want to learn Hebrew
toward them. He taught them that what they are doing is absolutely wrong. Even though he was a small boy, he didn't say I'm too young. I'm too small. No one's going to listen to me. Say I'm just a little boy. I'm just a little girl. I'm only 12 years old. I'm only 10 years old. I'm only three years old. No. Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is teaching us that no matter how young you are, how young you are. Do good. Right. And question people respectfully, ask you questions nicely, and put your trust in Allah subhana wa tada because Allah subhanho wa Taala is to protect. Okay, now we have a few minutes left and before the program ends, we want to discuss what we want to discuss. We want to
discuss lessons that we took from today's story about Ibrahim alayhis salam, right. I have a few lessons here. Let me share them with you. I'm sure you have many many more lessons, but I have some lessons that I want to share. inshallah, lesson number one, as we said, You are never too small to take place. You are never too small to make the world a better place. That's number one. Number two, trust your mind and trust your heart, Allah Subhana who mind and give you your heart, in your mind and in your heart, a lot of places to all the good things, all the things that Allah subhanho wa Taala love
and a lot towards our heart all the things that Allah doesn't let go the bad days as Khadija has towards a strength. So our hearts have an idea, have an idea of what's good and what's bad. What
created us, right? And we have to worship Allah and Allah only wants us to do good things. So Allah will put in our hearts and our minds the good things that we have to do. So trust your mind and trust your heart. If it feels wrong, then it's wrong. If it feels wrong, it's wrong. Don't say everyone listens to music. So music must be okay.
unless Allah says, of course, thank you I'm
dancing doesn't mean everyone is dancing, that it means dancing is okay. It just said it doesn't mean everyone is dancing that we should dance. If everyone is dancing, we should ask ourselves first. What does Allah tell us to do? There's a lot like us to play musical instruments, yes or no? No. Does Allah love us to dance in front of everybody and waste time? No.
Only if Allah says yes or no, exactly. Cynthia, can you do that? Only if Allah says yes or no. So trust your mind and trust your heart. If it feels wrong, then it's probably wrong. Don't say everyone is doing it. All my cousins are doing it all my friends are doing it. No, even if all your cousins and friends are doing it. If it's wrong, it's wrong. What should you do? Be like Ibrahim and go talk to them and teach them that this is wrong. That's lesson number two. Lesson number three. When you try to correct someone and teach someone,
be respectful, speak nicely. Speak sweetly like
he said, Oh my dear father, Oh my dear father. Oh, my dear father, he wasn't rude. He was gentle and he was soft. So when you teach people things, teach them nicely. Sometimes people don't know that they're doing something wrong. They're doing the wrong thing but don't know. So speak nicely and teach them because Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He taught us that we should teach people and teach people nice. Okay, number four has to be Allahu Nirmal work here. This two hour that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam teaches us that as a young boy as a young girl, if you ever feel scared, or you feel overwhelmed, or you feel anxious, right, you just get right everyone's talking about the
Coronavirus. Right. Right so some some of the boys and some of the girls feel scared. What should you say has to be a loved one in Milwaukee. Right let's let's let's say three times together has to be
when you're in Milwaukee lipgloss everyone can hear you guys has to be a la Milwaukee it has to be Allahu Waikiki right? So we should learn this. So that whenever we feel afraid, we can say it and put our trust in Allah that Allah will will protect us. You already know it, Masha, Allah, Allah. Allah bless you, and bless all the children of the Almighty I mean, me. I have a fifth lesson that we can take before we end today's program, and that is to always remember that nothing can harm you except with the permission of Allah. No fire can hurt you except with the permission of Allah. This doesn't mean you should jump in the fire. No, it doesn't mean that you should stay away from the
fire. The Coronavirus cannot harm you actually
Except with the permission of Allah. But this means we should do everything to protect ourselves from the Coronavirus. We should wash our hands for 20 to 40 seconds, we shouldn't touch up with soap. Yes, so thank you idea with soap, we shouldn't touch our face and touch out, you know, our mouth and our nose and our eyes. Before we wash our hands, right, we should stay at home, we shouldn't go out if we don't need to, right. So we should take the means we should take the means. So nothing harms us except with the permission of Allah. But also we should take the means we should make sure that we take the precautions we listen to the advices that the people give us to to help
us save ourselves from difficulty and hardship. But we should also say has to be available when you're working. Alright, so these are five lessons. If you missed it, don't worry, you can always play the video back in Sharla it will be saved and it will be on our YouTube channel inshallah our booth gender, YouTube channel, so you can listen to it later and take those points back or jot those points down. inshallah. Now, what I'd like you to do before you go just a little bit of homework number one, I want you all to sit down with your parents and ask your parents to help you learn the do app has to be allaahu and nimble wiki has to be Allahu Allah killer, right? So it can be a family
program. And together the parents and the boys and the girls together. Learn this to learn the meaning of the drive repeat it so you pronounce it nicely and put it in your heart, lock it in your heart somewhere so that whenever you feel afraid, you say has to be a level when everyone working. Also, I want you all to sit with your parents as well and have a discussion at home. Ask your parents to tell you about wrong things that many people do. But even though many people are doing it, it's still wrong okay. So this is homework, right for the parents also listening in is sit down with your children and get a whiteboard or get a little diary right which you can say lockdown diary
lessons that I learned during lockdown for example, and write these things down. So tomorrow your children can read these things right? Have the discussion together, allow the children to participate or the boys and the girls you tell your parents would you think is wrong, but a lot of people are doing it and also the parents can tell the children a lot of things that many people do, but they are wrong as well. So that's your homework. Now, Abdullah is reminding me to let you all know that you should subscribe to the channel. You should like this video and you should share it with your cousins and friends. And then you should join us tomorrow at the same time insha Allah
every Monday to Friday, I will be with you all we will be with you on inshallah life Allah subhanho wa Taala looks after our health and we will be learning lessons from the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we will be having a chance to build gender right everyday inshallah, same time 11am UK time I love you all for the sake of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when we love someone for no other reason, but because they just amazing people, like you will ask my young boys and young girls we should tell them that I love you for the sake of Allah. So I tell I say to each and every one of you I say to Hydra and Delilah, and to admit and to everyone
behind the camera, all the boys all the girls, I love you all for the sake of Allah and I love building genda with you all and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept from us except for mercy me louder. I mean we almost cannot accept from us until next time, which is tomorrow insha Allah Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
