And I reiterate a special special welcome to you all from myself. And the young learners have team over here in rehab for today's episode. As promised, we're going to continue the story of who

00:04:09--> 00:04:53

Ibrahim Ali is lm Yes. And yesterday, we discussed his story up to the point where he had a son called is married to his son and he had a another wife and her name was hajer. And she was the mother of his marine. And then Allah tested Ibrahim and remember we said a lot test people, right? Why does he test people, he tests us so that we can pass the test insha Allah, and the more tests we pass, the more prizes we get. Remember, every time you pass a test, you get a prize, right? If you in school, when you pass your test, you can go to the next grade. Right? And then you can go to high school, then you can go to university. So the more test you pass, the more you can get in terms of

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

presence, right in terms of opportunities. So the same thing applies Allah subhanho wa Taala it's similar, not the same.

00:05:00--> 00:05:30

Same but the similar concept applies. Allah subhanho wa Taala test those who he loves, okay? He tests us. Yes, Allah knows everything, but a lot of tests so we can do it so we can know. handler, right? So we can know, Allah knows everything. Right? Some people say if Allah knows everything, why do we eat? Why do we even have to live? Why don't we just go straight to the DF tm and go straight to general agenda? Well, if that happened, then people will say, it's not fair.

00:05:31--> 00:06:06

If I had a chance, I would have done this, if I had a chance, I would have done that. That's what people will say, Allah knows us already. Allah created us. So luck gives us the chance. And Allah knows what we're going to do. But he allows us to live our life and do it for ourselves. And the angels record the deeds, good deeds or bad deeds right, Khadija. And on the day of karma, Allah will present the deeds, and no one can say, No, I didn't get a chance, you know, you had the chance. And this is what you did. So if you go to the files, because you did the work of the people of the fire, and if you go to Gen X, because you did the work of the people off of gender, right? So life is a

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

test. Allow will test us Yes. But we must understand our whole life is a test. Our entire life is a test from beginning to end.

00:06:18--> 00:06:33

If Allah gives you something, it's a test. And if Allah doesn't give you something, it's also a test. When Allah gives you something allies testing you, are you going to thank Allah? Are you going to remember Allah? What are you going to do?

00:06:34--> 00:07:15

Some people, when they clever? They say, I am clever. You seem I did it. See, I'm so good. You know, you know, I practice so much. Now that's failing the test. If you speak like that, you speaking in a way that doesn't make me happy. I was testing you. Are you going to remember who helped you? Who gave you your eyes? Who gave you your hand? Who gave you your brain? Who gave you your heart? Are you going to remember and say Alhamdulillah, I thank Allah for the blessings he gave me. So I can draw this way. And I can write this way. And I can learn this way I can memorize the Quran.

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

Right?

00:07:18--> 00:07:56

So hon Allah, that's a test. Some people fail the test. But they don't know that they've been tested because they passed, the parents bought him a present, they might have gone on a holiday, and so on and so forth. So they don't even think they've been tested. They just think everything is good. But you only know the deaf pm. Right? Because sometimes Allah can reward us for our good deeds whilst we alive. And then when we go to a lion, see Allah Please give us Jenna, we used to do this and we used to do that allowance. I already gave you a presence. Right? You could help was a present. The holidays was the present. The money you had was the present. The happiness you had was the present

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

colors. You got all your presence.

00:07:58--> 00:08:08

Somebody will say that, okay. But I don't want to be sad on Earth. I want to be happy. And I also want to be happy on the DFP ama. I want to be happy both ways.

00:08:09--> 00:08:22

Right? Can I be happy both ways? Yes, you can. How can you be happy both ways. When you happy now you thank Allah. If you think Allah, Allah will keep you happy now and keep you happy on the dfcm

00:08:23--> 00:09:10

you see the trick. But if you happy now and you don't think Allah you will only be happy now and you won't be happy on the day of pm. So this is what we mean when we say life is a test the lies always testing us. But some people are like tests more than others like Ibrahim alayhis salam Allah tested him and said, take your little boy and take your wife and leave them in the middle of nowhere. But Subhana Allah, He did it. And the middle of nowhere is known as maka, tomo. kurama. A hustling bustling city, which millions visit yearly. And every year, and it has so much water and so much food, nobody is hungry. Everyone's eating, when you go for a run, or you go for Hajj. And you in the

00:09:10--> 00:09:37

Arab and Muslim time if you fasting on Monday and Thursday, especially. There's over a million people there. But everyone has dates to eat breakfast in the harem. You see them on TV for those who didn't go to Morocco, you see them on TV, right? Everyone has food. But once upon a time, nothing existed. So panela do you see if you Be patient and you put your trust in Allah, great things can happen.

00:09:39--> 00:10:00

You want to pass your exams you have to study. You want to play games, but you have to be patient. I can't play games I have to study. I'm going to study and put my trust in Allah. I want to play football. No, but I have to study. That's hard. Okay, it's hard, but be patient and do it. And at the end, you'll see great things beyond your imagination. And that's today's lesson. Today's lesson.

00:10:00--> 00:10:15

part of the story of Ibrahim is a story of patience. Yesterday his story was a story of tawakkul and patients, but we focused on telecoil not tawakkul remember tawakkul where you put them depart and you think

00:10:16--> 00:10:55

and you think things are just gonna pop out of the right not to work well but what could you do your best and you put your trust in Allah. Today we want to focus on patience. Why patience? Well, it's my le Salam was growing up in McKenna with his mommy and this new tribe that settled a Ibrahim alayhis salam no doubt misty sun, so he would visit his Marina regularly. He would come from Palestine all the way to Makkah, see his marine see hedger and go back to Palestine. When he was done, come back after so many weeks, visit his family in MK long journey.

00:10:56--> 00:10:57

Weeks under the hot sun.

00:10:58--> 00:11:48

Han Allah scary no police, no services, no garages, no places to buy drinks and coffee and tea, etc, etc. Just one journey. They were desert bandits who used to exist these to hide behind the sand dunes, like thieves bandits are like thieves. And they wait for you to come and then they pounce on you and take your money, all that existed. But he would go and meet his son and his wife and go back to Palestine. And years past like this. Now, some of the scholars of the series say around 10 to 12 years past like this, and now is married allihies salam was about 12 years old or 14 years old, and during the days of Hajj, and today's the eighth of the hijab, were in Saudi Arabia. And we know that

00:11:48--> 00:12:11

the who judge are going to Mina so pay attention, okay, because we're going to talk about these days in relation to Ibrahim alayhis salam. But before the eight of the hedger we can imagine when we look at the different narrations of the scholars and what they told us about what happened before the eighth of hijjah at the eighth of bullhead, jack, Ibrahim Alayhi, salaam started seeing the dream.

00:12:12--> 00:12:23

When you when you sleep, you see a dream. Or you ask what was the dream? Okay. He saw himself sacrificing his son. You know, like when you sacrifice an animal?

00:12:26--> 00:12:42

I sacrifice is when you have to slaughter something. But I'll explain that to you after Okay. All right. Because everyone in the young learners have knows. So I will explain to you after the session. Okay, remind me Okay, Khadija. He was sacrificing his son.

00:12:43--> 00:13:00

Right? When you take a knife and you have to sacrifice something, you cut something, when you sacrifice, you're doing it for the sake of Allah. So he sees this dream, but he doesn't think much of it. But he sees it again. And he sees it again, during which days, the days of the hedgehog

00:13:02--> 00:13:09

on the eighth of the hedgehog, like today, hundreds of years ago, over 1000 years ago.

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

He started thinking about this dream

00:13:16--> 00:13:21

over and over again, thinking thinking, thinking, thinking thinking, thinking this is called

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

euro wheat or we attend.

00:13:26--> 00:13:59

What does rahua you mean? rahua means? It means somebody is contemplating over something, thinking about something over and over again contemplating pondering. When did he do that? On the eighth of the head. This is what some of our scholars tell us. The eighth of the hedgeye is known as yom with teruya. It's known as your materia for two reasons. One reason is because the people used to gather the water on the eighth of the hedgerow. So like today, like today, right? They would prepare to go from Makkah to Mina

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

right but they would make the candles drink a lot of water so the candles had water to last the days of hedge and they would fill the leather sacks. They used to have leather sacks with water. Okay, and because leather can keep things cool, so they used to fulfill these leather sacks back in the day not like containers we have pasty containers today that leather sacks and is to put water in it and water in it I still have a lot of leather sacks and is to fill it with water and tie to the animals so they could use it to cook and to drink and to make Hulu

00:14:29--> 00:14:34

right teruya carries this meaning as well. A meaning of

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

quench to be quenched and to gather water and to have sufficiency with regards to water. So it's called the ohmmeter we have because that's what they used to do on the eighth of the hedgerow but also if we go back in time to our our to the father of the Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam, some of the scholars say that it's called yomo Tarawa because he was doing this contemplation because from the meanings of thoroughly I used to think

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

What is this dream? Why am I seeing it over and over again? This conscious beer, just, you know your normal dreams that we have when we go to sleep.

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

And then on the ninth of the hedger

00:15:12--> 00:15:22

arafa Ibrahim Ooh, Marina Roja. arafa arafa. The length of the hedger is called the day of our of

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

what he brought him out of

00:15:26--> 00:16:18

out of a means to know, on the ninth of the hedger, he knew so panela this is from Allah. He wants, he's testing me, my only son, he wants me to sacrifice him. So Han Allah arafa. Ibrahim knew. Now we don't know if on the ninth also Ibrahim made his son No. So his son also knew, but we know on the 10th was the day they went and did the, the sacrifice. Right. So the ninth is known as alpha for two reasons. Number one, because the Hajaj the pilgrims go to the plains of Africa, a place on earth known as our alpha. And they worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. There. So it's the place is called out of iron. The day is called alpha. But also it's called alpha from the meaning to know because

00:16:18--> 00:16:30

Ibrahim Alayhi Salam knew that Allah has revealed Kim a test Ibrahim, you're your son when he's two years old, fun. Take your son away. Now when your son is 14 years old is going to be even more fun.

00:16:32--> 00:17:12

This is what allows you to do, are you going to choose your son? Are you going to choose Allah? Are you going to choose what's in your heart? Now what's in your Well, what's in your heart is what you're going to do. But no doubt every father and mother has the children in their in the heart right boys and girls, your mommy and daddy, they tell you to do a lot of things. You might not like it. But you have to know that you are in the hearts. They love you so much. If anything happened to you. They will be the first ones they you know sometimes we get my mommy. She's not being cool. My dad is not cool. Making me sleep early. But I want to watch the match. Hmm

00:17:14--> 00:17:49

some daddies are cool. They wake you up for the lift for the trophy lifting right? Some daddies do that. What do you guys think? When they winning the trophy? You bet there's a daddy EQ some daddies wake you up. What do you guys think? Right. But some mommies and daddies say no you have school tomorrow. You have to sleep nine Oh, it hurts your heart and you feel they're not being cool. My friends waking up. My neighbors are staying up, re watching the match. And then shape on makes you think that your parents are not cool. Your parents don't love you. But no, your parents love you. They love you so much. That's why they're making you do something a lot loved Ebrahim more than

00:17:49--> 00:17:52

anybody. But Allah made him do this test study.

00:17:54--> 00:17:56

Allah loves to do Elisa also.

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

I loved all these prophets.

00:18:03--> 00:18:07

Even Adam it he said, Yes, I love the Moto Allah created to him

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

with his hands.

00:18:11--> 00:18:16

Adam was the first person. We are all the children of Adam and Eve.

00:18:17--> 00:18:33

So a lot yesterday, Brahim. And Ibrahim knew on the night that he had to do this test from Allah. Ibrahim loved he said no doubt. But who comes first? My son Oh Allah, Who gave me his many.

00:18:35--> 00:18:36

Who are we? Who's going to give us Jenna?

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

Who gave me hajer.

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

So who does this might belong to?

00:18:45--> 00:18:48

You really belongs to Allah. He really belongs to.

00:18:49--> 00:19:26

So Ibrahim, he felt what he felt but he's got to put a lot first. So he went to his marine. And he taught his mind. He didn't just tell me we don't understand that he just told us well, this is what we go to we have to do is go No, he spoke to his marine about a lie and who is alive or no doubt over the years it all the travel from Palestine to MCI was teaching this material. And we see this in the Quran for Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Surah two suffered falam bellezza Maria was sorry, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that when sudo sulfat

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

Allah tells us that when when when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam reached the right age and we can deduce from this also the right moment, the moment to be told to be told what Allah wants to be what Allah wants to happen. He made sure it's mine was ready. That was my he didn't lose his Islam at that moment because this is a test is a big test. Right? Right. You're gonna pass away. You're gonna go away. You're gonna leave your mommy leave your Baba right. It's a big test also for the child.

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

Children right? So Ibrahim spoke to me in a way to make sure he's ready to learn what our loved ones are layer boonie Ibrahim said to his son in niara feeling man me and knee Baroque photo manga Tara Tora Subhana Allah Ibrahim says this mareel I see in my dream that I am sacrificing you. Oh is mareel what do you think about this my son? Tell me your views. Tell me your thoughts.

00:20:33--> 00:20:33

So Hana Allah

00:20:35--> 00:21:18

Subhana Allah. Imagine this Father Son, having this conversation, but it's from Allah. And we're doing it for the sake of Allah, whoever puts a lot first will never finish last. What is his medical say? He turns to his father. And he and remember Abraham is a human being. He's thinking in his mind when he was a small boy, and his father wanted to kill him by throwing him into the fire. So Ibrahim is thinking how he felt as a young boy, and now he's telling his young boy, that you're going to be sacrificed, meaning your life is going to be taken. But the circumstances are different. When Brian was small, that was falsehood. People were doing it for the idols. But now it's being done for the

00:21:18--> 00:21:30

sake of so Hannah law look at this test. What does he smile say? Carla? Yeah, yeah, Betty, said, Oh, my dear father, if I met two more,

00:21:33--> 00:22:15

said, Do what Alice commanding you to do. It shows you smile understood that this dream is coming over and over again, meaning the command is coming over and over again. He didn't say Do what you were commanded to do. He said, Do our allies commanding you to do because he knows a light still come on in your brain to do there's no choice in the matter? Is it going to be easy for me? No. certegy duni insha. Allah Who me now saw beauty in this is my dear father, it's not going to be easy, but you're going to find me from the patient. I told you today especially, is a story of patience. What is patience boys and girls? Patience, is

00:22:16--> 00:22:36

to do that which Allah told you to do, even if it's hard. That's patience. To stay away from something that Allah told you to stay away from. Even when it's hard. That's patience. Your heart wants to do it but you fight yourself. Your soul wants to do it but you fight yourself. You know, your parents told you not to do it.

00:22:37--> 00:23:22

Your friends at school are telling you to do it. Chapin is telling you no one will see you Your parents are not here Don't worry, just do it. But you know No, my parents told me Allah said it's wrong. Everything is pushing you to do it but you fight yourself and say no, I'm not gonna do it. She is gonna tell you the people are gonna say you just a mummy's boy you're just had daddy's boy you just weak but you don't you don't like what they telling you. But you fight you Be patient you don't allow yourself to fall. Say No, no matter what happens to me. I'm not going to disobey Allah. That's patience. And then to do that, which Allah tells you to do, with like pray Salah for example,

00:23:22--> 00:23:47

Japan comes to you and tells you know, you tired Sleep, sleep it you tie it fudger sleep. Don't wake up. But you fight. You know, Allah wants you to break so you wake up, you fight you sleep, you find cheaper. It might be winter and the water is too cold. Right? As you attend to what is too cold. No, I'm gonna put this cold water this cold water is going to save me from the fire of Johanna.

00:23:48--> 00:23:52

This cold water is going to put out the fire of Johanna go away. She's been.

00:23:53--> 00:23:57

That's patience. And Ibrahim and is married had patience.

00:23:58--> 00:24:12

and patience also is when something happens that you don't like that hurts you. You don't leave Allah subhanho wa Taala. But you get close to him. That is also patience. Right? That is also patience. Right? You fail the exam.

00:24:14--> 00:24:21

But you still believe in Allah. You don't. You don't talk bad about Allah. You don't think bad about Allah. That's patience.

00:24:22--> 00:24:59

You tried your best but you failed the exam. You wanted to go on that holiday, but then COVID-19 happened you couldn't go on the holiday. So you Be patient, you don't complain. That's also patients, you'd be happy with what Allah does. And this is Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam. He smiled Ali Salaam Ibrahim was patient to do it. His marine was patient to take it and they were patient with the situation. This is patience. Now this is the ninth of the hedgehog, which is tomorrow, the day of alpha and look how Allah loves this day that he makes them to judge them on alpha. And also Allah says he taught the prophets of Allah Allah He will send them whoever

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

Fast the ninth of the hedger, which is tomorrow, the day Ibrahim new and he made his smile now. And they both made a lot happy

00:25:11--> 00:25:41

that they're going to go ahead with it for the sake of online, be patient. A lot tells those who are not performing hedge to do an act of patience. What is the act of patience? fasting? fasting is an act of patience. You want to eat, but you Be patient. I'll wait. I'll wait. I'll wait. I'll wait. You want to drink but you Be patient. I'll wait. I'll wait. I'll eat at night. I want to fast I want to stay away from eating and stay away from drinking for the sake of Allah subhanho ettan.

00:25:42--> 00:26:08

That's patience. So Allah makes the whole world practice the act of patience, which is fasting. And there's an ayah in the Quran, which Allah says was that he knew be somebody was Salah, that seek assistance in cyber and Salah some of the scholars of the seed have said cyber means patience means fasting, seek assistance by fasting and by Salah. Allah called it sober and not fasting, because you need sober too fast.

00:26:10--> 00:26:52

The quality of fasting is patience. And we fasted Ramadan, right? You have to be patient, you're looking at the clock out long to go. How long to go, right? But and then you know, Baba tells you Carrasco Drinkwater Shay. And you say no, no, no, no, I'm gonna be patient Allah will be happy with me. I'm gonna fight it. Right there is patients brothers and sisters in Islam and boys and girls. So Ibrahim now on that on the ninth. This becomes known to him and known to his marriage insha Allah and it's a day of amazing patience. So Allah makes us fast on this day, and whoever fast the ninth of the hedger Allah will forgive two years of my innocence. Two years of my innocence one first, but

00:26:52--> 00:26:55

Allah will forgive two years of my innocence of handler.

00:26:57--> 00:26:59

Your small sense your big sins Yes, Wilson's.

Now we have the 10th of the hedgerow what happened on the 10th I'm gonna have to speed up a little bit because our time is running out. I hope you don't mind. We will go a bit longer today, because I want to finish the story nicely.

00:27:12--> 00:27:14

But I will speed up a little bit okay.

00:27:16--> 00:27:20

00:28:01--> 00:28:11

last lashari Kala cranky Khadija Mashallah Khadija remembers, so the Hajaj are going to Mina Ibrahim on the 10th went with his son to Mina from Makkah to Mina.

00:28:12--> 00:28:14

Now, Shea Byrne,

00:28:15--> 00:28:21

who loves people to disobey Allah, he was scratching his head if he hasn't head we haven't seen a button. But he

00:28:24--> 00:28:25

I don't know. You know?

00:28:30--> 00:29:15

I found it funny. So, what happens what happens? coupon is watching all this thinking. My Word. This Ibrahim is Mario these two people are amazing. This is crazy. I thought I don't even need to do anything. Brian was not gonna listen to amla and he's married. He's not gonna listen to Allah, but they're both listening to Allah. They both gonna do this. Now remember, shavon told Allah that I am better than them. And I will take them all to the hellfire. So he wanted. Ibrahima decided to go to the Hellfire so shaytan was loving it. I was telling him to snotty son she was loving it but all of a sudden Hold on. The opposite is happening. We're going to do it. So shaytan said no, no, no, no, I

00:29:15--> 00:29:24

need to do something. What does he do? He brings three of his other Chapin's are shopping. And he sends them to stop Ibrahim.

00:29:25--> 00:29:32

So one shape on comes and says Ibrahim, what are you doing? This is your only son. You can imagine what she upon was saying.

00:29:33--> 00:29:59

Right? shavon doesn't want him to do it. Remember, Ibrahim wanted a son because no one was worshipping Allah. He wanted a son to worship Allah then that son can have children who will worship Allah so he wanted people to worship Allah. So you can imagine she upon using chicory Chopin is very tricky, telling Ibrahim that What are you doing? This is your only son, if you slaughter the son who's gonna worship Allah after the shavon want anyone to worship Allah

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

Hmm, no, no, he doesn't want anyone to worship Allah. But he will use that trick against you. Use it as a trick to make you disobey Allah will trick you say, who's gonna worship Allah after you Ibrahim Come on Ebrahim. Come on, what are you doing? Ibrahim was not having it. Abraham picked up seven stones and pelted the shape and every time thing Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar seven times he pelted the shape on saying not rocks, pebbles, pebbles, pebbles or small stones, small stones. Okay. All right. Otherwise, if people think it's rocks, they might be going for Hajj next time with rocks in the suitcase. Now we don't want any

00:30:46--> 00:30:58

rocks in the suitcase some people now during Hajj, you will see on the 10th of Dhul hijjah, the 11th and the 12th. And if they stay on the 13th, the 13th you will see the pilgrims throwing stones

00:30:59--> 00:31:41

in pits this three pits in Minar. What are these three pits that you see? The Hajaj throwing the stones in the Jamaat? What are the Jamaat the gem errata the stone structures that represent the place where the chiffons came to Ibrahim and he Brian pelted them. That's why we pelt and we say Allahu Akbar, why do we say Allahu Akbar, we say Allahu Akbar, telling shapen and teaching ourselves that Allah is greater. Allah is greater than me. Allah is greater than my son. Allah is greater than my desires. Allah is greater than what I want. Allah is greater than showing upon Allah is greater than what shape and once you teach yourself Allah is greater that's how you Pelton you keep seeing

00:31:41--> 00:32:18

allies greater allies greater you teach yourself you Brian was teaching himself because no doubt when Chapin was telling him this, he was thinking Yes, my son, but then he was teaching himself No, Allah is greater. Another shape on comes seven shots, seven pounds on lies greatest seven times, Abraham teaches himself as that Jade on gums she thought is not giving up presenting more people shape bonds peltor game seven times, saying Allah is greater. Whatever happens Ibrahim is teaching himself that whoever puts Allah first you will never ever finish last. Always put her love first.

00:32:20--> 00:32:26

Right? You might want a super big house but Allah gives you the small house, put her love fest

00:32:27--> 00:32:37

and you'll never finish last. Whatever Allah does, Allah does good. You might want a bigger car but Allah give you a smaller car puto la first, whatever Allah does, he does good.

00:32:38--> 00:32:45

Sometimes you save up money to buy a big car, or you buy a big house. And then you find some Muslims who need money, the poor.

00:32:46--> 00:32:50

So you take some of that money and you give it to them and you buy a smaller house.

00:32:52--> 00:32:53

Now you wanted the bigger house.

00:32:55--> 00:32:57

But who is greater ally is greater.

00:32:59--> 00:33:10

You teach yourself that I'm going to make Allah happy before I make myself happy. And when I know Allah is happy, then I'm going to be happy. That is what it is boys and girls. That is what it is brothers and sisters.

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

So now she she upon failed and they get to the place in Mina with the sacrifice has to happen. And Ibrahim Alayhi Salam lays his morality his solemn on the slab and Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam start sharpening the knife. Now you can imagine it's human nature. You want the knife to be sharp, so that it's the cut is quick, right? Because if the knife is not sharp, then it's very hard to cut and it hurts more. That's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when you slaughter the animals, you must have a sharp knife allows you to have a sharp knife so the cut is quick. Right? It doesn't hurt the animal right? So

00:33:51--> 00:33:59

he Brian was sharpening the knife. Can you imagine what's going in his mind in his heart is married is lying on this on the on the on the slab?

00:34:00--> 00:34:28

Can you imagine what's going on in his mind and heart? And maybe you thinking Allah might tell me holla you don't have to do it? Maybe. But he's still doing. He's doing he's wait. It's waiting. He's waiting then. And he's reminding himself Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And during these days, look how much Allah wants us to learn this fact. Because Allah told us to decide the takbeer Allah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.

00:34:30--> 00:34:37

Illa Illa Allah Allahu Allahu Akbar, Allah, akbar wa ala.

00:34:38--> 00:34:40

Everyone is saying they can't hear you I want you to do it by yourself.

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

Mashallah, Mashallah I have a generally has a softer voice drowned out by Abdullah and Khadija. So that's why maybe sometimes you don't you don't

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

You don't hear him but he's there. He's there Mashallah.

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

So we repeat the stability to teach ourselves not just making sounds to teach ourselves allies greater lies greater. That's what we're doing. Hmm. So Ibrahim is reminding himself and no doubt his mind is reminding himself and nothing comes from Allah. So Abraham takes the knife and he puts it on the neck of his son. He puts it on the neck. He's thinking maybe before I cut, a law will tell me it's okay. You don't have to do it. But nothing's happening. And then he cuts

00:35:37--> 00:35:38

with the knife doesn't cut.

00:35:40--> 00:35:52

The knife doesn't cut. You brought him in. He cuts the game he wants to cook to fulfill the commander of a law. Come on, get it over and done with it go through it. The knife is the cutting law cover.

00:35:53--> 00:36:00

The knife isn't cutting it sharpened. It's not cutting any Brahim lives a lesson

00:36:01--> 00:36:18

that whoever is patient, you will get great things. And he learned a lesson which he learned when he was small that the fire doesn't burn except with the permission of Allah. Fire is fire but it only burns if allows it to burn. Remember when he went in the fire the fire didn't burn.

00:36:19--> 00:36:20

Remember,

00:36:21--> 00:36:32

he also learned that the knife can cut but it only cuts With whose permission unless permission Allahu Akbar the light is greater than the fire light is greater than the knife, Allahu Akbar.

00:36:33--> 00:37:02

The knife is not cutting because a lot didn't make the knife cut so high in Allah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala calls out Ibrahim for them as Lama or tele hula jabeen. Allah says when they're both submitted to Allah, when the knife was on the neck cutting and the sun was not complaining. They both passed the test of Allah. They submitted to the will of Allah Subhana Allah.

00:37:03--> 00:37:36

Allah says, cut sir Dr. Ibrahim, you fulfill the dream. you fulfill the dream. Allah doesn't need your son. A lot can give you a son and give you more sons. It's not about your son. It's about taqwa. Are you going to do it because Allah told you to do it? And then Allah says warfare de ina, who will be the ability now the Allah brought a ram and told Ibrahim sacrifice the ram yo Munna her the day of sacrifice, sacrifice the ram

00:37:37--> 00:38:16

Subhana Allah, and on the 10th of Dhul hijjah which is our Friday our day of read 10th of the ages two names that they have read and the day of sacrifice right? On that day. It's from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that all of us sacrifice, right that we all try and sacrifice if we can afford to, and we distribute the meat to the poor. I'm sure you guys see your parents, arranging animals to be sacrificed and the meat is distributed to the poor, right? You guys see that? Where you where you where you guys come from? Your parents do this. Why do we do it? Because you brought him did it and Allah loved it. And Allah says Lee and Allah Lumumba, whether

00:38:16--> 00:38:50

deema, Lackey, Yunel huzzah, Kwame Nkrumah, Kumasi, it is not the meat or the blood of your sacrifice that reaches Allah. But it's the tough call that reaches Allah, that you soon have to hedge you doing it because Allah told you to do it. And so Han Allah boys and girls, guess what? Guess what? Ibrahim was ready to give his marriage to Allah. Allah gave Ibrahim back his marine and gave him another son his hack. Whoever gives something up for the sake of Allah, Allah will give them back better.

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

To Han Allah.

00:38:55--> 00:39:30

He had one son, and he was ready to give that son for Allah. What did Allah do? Allah gave me smile back and gave him his hack me water is happier coop. And after his hack yaku became the grandchildren of Ibrahim and all different grandchildren who are prophets. Remember we said Ibrahim became the father of the prophets. Allah honored Ibrahim, Allah honored Ibrahim Allah honor the brine. Why, because of his amazing Eman and his amazing Islam from when he was a young boy, always putting Allah first. So this is the lesson of this eat boys and girls.

00:39:31--> 00:39:59

When you have a day, and you haven't eat lunch, tell your family that the lesson of the days of hedge and the lesson of the day of read is whoever puts a lot First they will never ever finish last. And that brings us to the end of our hedger edition and today's episode. I pray you thoroughly enjoyed it. So Pamela our three days went by so fast. And I'm happy that Allah blessed us to do this together.

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