All prayers Gita loss of Hannah hodeida

00:00:05--> 00:00:47

peace be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam testified that is not God except Allah testified that Muhammad is the Prophet and the Messenger of Allah. My brothers in Islam I encourage you and myself to find out more about Allah as a lawyer Lord states in the Holy Quran, oh there's a belief fee Allah. Fie Allah the way should be feed and do not die unless you're under state of Islam. My brothers in Islam, we are talking about the season of Hajj we are coming to the end of the month of Canada to start a new month, which is the amount of the Ninja and it's called the month of the picture because it is the month of head

00:00:48--> 00:00:54

and the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talks about the most important day of his which is the day of arafah

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

Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam makes mention and says Allah had you

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

had his alpha. So the most important day of highs is the day of alpha, you miss

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

you miss out on the dam has.

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

So next few days,

00:01:17--> 00:01:30

the day of arafah will start and the days of has had already started while people are flocking from all around the world from all walks of life going to Mecca Medina together respond to the call of Ibrahim and the column

00:01:31--> 00:02:00

alayhi wa sallam which is the main cause of a loss of Hannah with the Allah when Allah Allah Beatty minister by Les Sabina it is upon the loss of power without us right? So it's the right of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us that will respond to the call of a loss of Hannah Montana and perform Hajj Gaya and visit the sacred house the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Kaaba in Mecca and mocha Rama in the sacred vicinity of Mr. de la haraam.

00:02:02--> 00:02:03

Sign next few days,

00:02:04--> 00:02:16

has will stop even though you had and you have a really a number of people from all around the world visiting has been the main day of houses. And it is the day that you find people from all around the world.

00:02:17--> 00:02:31

all races and nationalities all walks of life, assembling together out of seeking a Muslim had honestly given us and at the same time, fulfilling the rituals of has and following the steps of Abraham

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

and the steps of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:42--> 00:03:16

come follow me and take the riches of His from me. So our has the act of has the riches of has all been demonstrated by the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for us to follow the path of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam but all goes back to the coal. The last panel Tara had commanded Ibrahim Alayhi Salam 1000s of years ago, with the loss of Hannah with Allah commanded Ibrahim alayhi salam to make the big sacrifice of sacrificing what he loved most.

00:03:18--> 00:03:36

Ibrahim was married to Sarah and I was married to save for least 67 years. And then Allah subhanaw taala blessed him with a son that has been longing for the head for a very long time. After he got married to

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

summarize and say the last

00:03:42--> 00:03:48

100 days out, you could imagine how long he's been waiting for that moment for

00:03:49--> 00:03:54

him with his first newborn son and that was his mind. And his mind came from his second wife.

00:03:56--> 00:04:09

Whenever I was blessed with this, my Salaam Ibrahim was so attached to Israel and he could imagine when you get married one or two years when I was busy with your child

00:04:11--> 00:04:21

it's like the last puzzle in your life. You can imagine when you've been waiting for this job for so long. He's gonna pass and then the last

00:04:22--> 00:04:23

one your

00:04:24--> 00:04:24

age.

00:04:26--> 00:04:32

So I was blessed. Ibraheem alehissalaam was married when it was nearly 100 years old.

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

As you could imagine, who say attached to Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to test Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and that test, which is the Common Test Allah subhanho wa Taala does every single believer who comes first in your life alone, creator or the rest of the creation of Allah. He comes first in your life alone, or you saw Allah or your family or your wife or your

00:05:01--> 00:05:02

Wait on us. That's

00:05:10--> 00:05:16

a very clean and empty thing you'll be left alone for you to say you're a believer before you are tested the reason

00:05:17--> 00:05:33

and just in your home and just you with your family because Allah wants to see who comes first alone His commands and his orders or everyone else. So Allah subhanho wa Taala did the same thing with Ibrahim alayhis salam, he comes first Allah or your son,

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

Yara, he come first proven.

00:05:40--> 00:05:43

If Allah subhanaw taala comes first, then show us

00:05:46--> 00:05:53

now that you can take your wife and your beautiful son that you've been waiting for decades, and put them in the middle of nowhere.

00:05:54--> 00:06:01

That's a big sacrifice. I know we listen to him. It's a beautiful story that we're entertained ourselves by listening to, but that's a huge sacrifice.

00:06:03--> 00:06:15

And I'm troubled with his wife has that in his newly born son is smart enough and takes them to the Valley of Baca a valley of nowhere, no human beings not even animals. It's a civilization

00:06:17--> 00:06:23

accommodation. And he leaves Hazzard and his beautiful son, his man in the middle of that belly and walks off.

00:06:27--> 00:06:30

And he just continues walking off

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

the living man in uniform sun in the middle of nowhere. And Ibrahim continues to walk off at the end.

00:06:39--> 00:06:44

Because he's a believer, and she's a wife of a prophet a messenger. Rahim.

00:06:47--> 00:06:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala commands you to do this to us. That's when Ibrahim turned around and said yes. So Hassan reports back and says if that's the case, alone, never forget us.

00:07:02--> 00:07:04

Allah subhanaw taala is with us.

00:07:07--> 00:07:23

Then you must be one last panel with all the ones that came out of the last panel to Anna come before everything and he travels he sets off and leaves behind a vulnerable woman with a vulnerable child in the middle of the belly.

00:07:24--> 00:07:35

And there is a powerful with a bit of data on water. At least believing woman is so connected to Allah subhanho wa Taala touched our lives origin fulfilling the laws of petrodollars commands.

00:07:36--> 00:07:56

Do you think it was easy for you to walk away from his wife and his newborn son in the middle of nowhere? That's not an easy sacrifice. But that's where the true sacrifice comes when Allah subhana wa tada commands you to do something you did to please Allah subhana wa Tada. And you give up what you love most for the sake of Allah azza wa jal

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

and he's got passed

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

to visit and check up on his son and his wife. And then he

00:08:09--> 00:08:17

grows up and not grows up to be a good well behaved young men, but also a prophet to be in the future.

00:08:19--> 00:08:22

Obviously, every single one of us love their children by

00:08:23--> 00:08:49

when they are well behaved. They doing well at school, with our righteous employees, by default will love our children even if they are ministers. Even bad boys or girls, we still love him, but you love them more when they're good boys and girls. Can you imagine is married is not a good boy, prophet to be righteous, pious. So you could imagine the attachment of Ibrahim

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

Ibrahim

00:08:57--> 00:09:12

with the support and assistance of his son is able to build a house in the middle of nowhere. So Ibraheem alehissalaam initiates the foundation of the garba and building the government in the middle of the belly. He just obeys the laws of Hannah without the laws.

00:09:13--> 00:09:57

doesn't ask why I'm building this place in the middle of nowhere. For what reason for what purpose as we always ask, why did Allah commandment to pray five times a day? Why is that? Why am I allowed to deal with this? This is why you call for submission to Allah subhana wa Tada. So Allah commanded imagine for him to build a cabin in the middle of nowhere, and it's my alarm is carrying the bricks while Ibraheem alehissalaam is laying the bricks. And Ibraheem alehissalaam continues to build the brick particularly continues to build the Kaaba until he reached to the heights which he needed a rock band to stand on. He stood on the rock until his legs or his face sank into the rock that later

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

on was done.

00:10:02--> 00:10:16

finished building the Kaaba Allah subhana wa tada commanded Ibrahim a command and which Allah subhanho wa Taala told them what the nursery will have after you built the cabin establish the cabin I commanded the young co people to come and visit this place

00:10:17--> 00:10:36

that's when the boy said hello to him is my voice gonna reach to he built a cabin in the middle of Makkah in the middle of nowhere and Allah subhana wa tada commands him to start inviting people to come and visit this place. If I'm says he was gonna reach to say Allah subhana wa tada tells him in

00:10:38--> 00:10:55

Walla Walla, Brahim, it's your responsibility to make that call how people reach or have people listen, or have this call rich people that's upon us your responsibility to make that call, have people hit that goal that

00:10:59--> 00:11:07

will come the highest peak of a mountain and he stands on that peak and he looks around no human being around and he makes the call.

00:11:09--> 00:11:32

Allah had established his house and he came to come perform has a visit this place. So Allah subhana wa tada made the call of Ibrahim rich everyone to the Day of Judgment. And that's where people respond back to the call of a Brahim going to Mecca and the Kaaba to visit the Kaaba perform has Lubbock Allahumma bykea Allah we heard that call and we are responding to this code.

00:11:34--> 00:11:39

How did the economy primary celebrate everyone, even to people like us?

00:11:40--> 00:11:47

Abraham on the other side of the world, that's the promise that Allah subhanho wa Taala promised Ibrahim and Allah fulfilled his promise.

00:11:49--> 00:11:56

Millions of people, every single year, respond to the call of Ibrahim alayhis salam, why didn't

00:11:57--> 00:12:12

you make that call and leave the rest upon us. And this is for you and my brother in Islam. When Allah commands us to do something, we just do it. The results come from Allah not from me, not from me, not from my effort, not from, not from our effort.

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

results come from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:18--> 00:12:23

comes from Allah, not from me, not from me. Our responsibility is for us

00:12:24--> 00:12:34

to fulfill Allah subhanho wa Taala His commandments in the life and then the rest will leave it to Allah subhanho wa Taala the way Ibrahim Alayhi Salam responded to the call of Allah subhana wa tada

00:12:35--> 00:12:40

by making that call, and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one that made the call of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam region.

00:12:41--> 00:12:53

This is a very important lesson because many times we connect ourselves to the outcomes before we even do anything. If I'm gonna do this, I'm aiming for these problems but is it gonna happen that's up to up to you.

00:12:54--> 00:12:57

It's not up to you. It's up to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:59--> 00:13:06

gives you the outcome of the sacrifice the sacrifice in this dunya in this dunya or not, it's up to Allah subhanho wa

00:13:08--> 00:13:18

sallam said I want to reach everyone the way they have not had to reach every and nobody saw some passed away, did not even go beyond the Arabian Peninsula Bharat now Islam hydrates everyone.

00:13:19--> 00:13:28

At the end of the day, your responsibility as the seven of Allah is for you to please Allah, Allah, aim for an outcome a result and leave the rest.

00:13:30--> 00:13:54

If you're always gonna connect yourself to the outcome, and you ended two things because there's an outcome you will never ever succeed and know that you never succeed in the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala your responsibility is to obey Allah to fulfill Allah subhanaw taala is writing commands in your life and you leave the rest to Allah It doesn't mean that you don't aim for an outcome of course I want an outcome but the outcome comes from Allah not from you.

00:13:55--> 00:14:32

People up the step is to cover up the build the cover Gavin for people to visit the cover. Ibraheem alehissalaam says a lot to him as Mark was gonna reach to say Allah subhana wa tada says if you do your job, and the rest is on us, a lot of people around the world Allah subhanho wa Taala established the cabana lucky menu that you can perform pilgrimage he allows an adult attic imagine that you come and visit this place. Allah subhanaw taala made the call of Abraham resonate and Allah subhanaw taala made the call of a Brahim reach Iran to the day of judgment that millions of people right now flock to the Kaaba flock to McCullough karma responded to the call of Ibrahim alayhis.

00:14:36--> 00:14:40

Salam after one of his visits to Makkah, checking up on

00:14:41--> 00:14:44

his slaves and he sees a dream.

00:14:45--> 00:14:49

And that dream is a dream of a proper messenger and my brothers in Islam.

00:14:51--> 00:14:53

We all dream of something yesterday.

00:14:54--> 00:14:58

Visiting the Antarctic for example. It's a dream it's a foolish dream.

00:15:00--> 00:15:18

Prophets and Messengers see something in the dream. It's a revelation. Property messages do not see foolish dreams. If they see something in their dream, it means it's a command from Allah subhanaw taala that means it's a revelation from Allah azza wa jal it's an inspiration from Allah subhana wa Tada. So that light upon the

00:15:19--> 00:15:34

sun is mine in Makkah, a Brian see something in his dream, what did he say? In the Manami Bach, he saw himself slaughtering his own son and endless on his mind on a solemn which means what

00:15:35--> 00:15:38

I'm showing you see some smacking and bashing your kids in the dream doesn't mean that

00:15:41--> 00:15:44

you're not a prophet. It's just a dream. And it couldn't be from the shavon.

00:15:46--> 00:16:27

But Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and all the rest of the prophets and messengers, that's a dream or whatever the scene The dream is a command from Allah subhanho wa Taala Ibraheem alehissalaam knew that this is a command from Eliza and ora, in order to do what you saw, you saw yourself slaughtering your son in the dream, you get up the next morning, and he goes slowly. So that's the command. He knows the drill. That's the Discover. So the next day Ibrahim alayhis, Salam causes sunny smile, his name is Allison. And he waited for him for many years. And what son a son Allah is looking for this opportunity to get rid of him, righteous, pious, respectful son that every single father would love

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

to have in their life.

00:16:32--> 00:16:37

UK awesome. Look at this dollar between the father and son Ibrahim in his mind.

00:16:38--> 00:16:52

I saw in my dream last night though slaughtering you. And he lifted to the you know, I'm a prophet. And you know, whatever I say my dream, it means it's command from Allah subhanaw taala. From what do you suggest upon me?

00:16:53--> 00:16:54

What do you advise me to do?

00:16:56--> 00:17:01

I saw my dream last night that was watering it, what do you advise me to do?

00:17:04--> 00:17:25

He's a righteous young man. Before he was even a proper messenger. Maybe he was a proper message at the time but he knows that this dream is a command from Allah subhanaw taala upon his father. So what was the response of his marriage to his father, after his father told him or some I saw in my dream, though slaughtering it, which means what Allah commandment to slaughter?

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

And I'm not sure

00:17:28--> 00:17:29

and cutting to the chase.

00:17:30--> 00:17:37

Allah commands me to slaughter you, from your mother, Tara, what do you suggest? What do you advise me to do? So what did

00:17:38--> 00:17:54

a young man what was his reply or response to his father? Yeah, if I'm Satoshi dooney, inshallah homina saponin or father, do what Allah commands do inshallah you find me from amongst the patient ones. And then even hold back

00:17:55--> 00:18:00

if Allah commanded you to slaughter me, you slaughter me, allows command

00:18:02--> 00:18:16

come before everyone everything, including me as your son. I know about him at least grabs his son and takes him way, way. a walk in the park. While I'm gonna go and take you shopping, I'm gonna get a Fuji on mice. burger

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

was it.

00:18:20--> 00:18:26

He's taken his son and his son knows exactly where he's going, he's gone. He's never going to come back. He's going to slaughter him.

00:18:27--> 00:18:30

along the way. shaitan comes to interject

00:18:31--> 00:18:40

to intercept what he brought him on a service minor plan to this a great sacrifice. A lot of places plays from it says anything

00:18:41--> 00:19:00

to stop pleasing the loss of candle Donna bangala zolgensma. He comes to Abraham the first time then it's my age Tommy comes to them a costume of rocks and stones in which we commemorate that when we do the Jamaat until Ibrahim Alayhi Salam had reached to that point in which he saw in his dream that he slaughtered this married

00:19:02--> 00:19:05

and he was in there.

00:19:06--> 00:19:13

And then as Mary told his father or father, make sure that our face the ground, I don't want you to look on my face and then you'll sympathize. And then you turn back my joy in

00:19:16--> 00:19:29

the sun that's about to be slaughtered and killed is saying that his father, Allahu Akbar, you know what we're talking about submission, submission, yes and hamdulillah submit to Allah. But that's a different level of submission.

00:19:30--> 00:19:38

And make sure you sharpen your blade that when you slaughter me Just kill me. As long as you never hold back from a Muslim Hannah Dallas command.

00:19:39--> 00:19:45

Fulfill Allah subhanaw taala orders upon you. And I follow him at a salon and it's not easy,

00:19:47--> 00:19:48

very emotional.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

Ladies son towards the ground, he grabs that sharp blade he puts on his truck, he tries to slaughter his son and Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't even allow it and then Allah Subhana

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

Allah calls upon Ibrahim got some doctor? Oh yeah, that's it.

00:20:04--> 00:20:14

you fulfill the loss of heterodontosaurus upon you, nanny for you to even pursue slaughtering your son. What are we gonna do? We're gonna send you a sheep or lamb from the heavens for you to slaughter in return.

00:20:15--> 00:20:34

And that they became the day that we slaughter the day of eating up. Ha, yes and hamdulillah it is varied, and we celebrate, but it's also a celebration of the great sacrifice of Ibrahim alayhis salam, which is a significance of the great sacrifice for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala How much do you really sacrifice for?

00:20:35--> 00:20:40

Abraham is willing to sacrifice his son Allison, how much do you really sacrifice for

00:20:42--> 00:20:57

the day? Think about the sacrifice the sacrifice for loss of Hannah Montana. How much was he put for the sake of Allah azza wa jal how much people for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and minimal sacrifice for you to remember that there is for you to sacrifice and

00:20:59--> 00:20:59

to commemorate

00:21:00--> 00:21:01

even though

00:21:03--> 00:21:36

I confirm sooner, but we slaughter not because we're spot on, take photos and selfies and post them up here. But for us to commemorate the great sacrifice that it brought him. Salam sacrifice to please Allah subhanho wa Taala in return, you sacrifice what you love most of Allah azza wa jal as Allah zodat makes mention the Holy Quran. Lenten Allah had to film in that bone. You will never acquire the high level of Eman until you sacrifice what you love most. My brothers in Islam when Allah subhana wa tada revealed that verse lantana,

00:21:38--> 00:22:02

a boon in Surah de la Emraan with a problem hamazon resorted that verse and one of the companions hurt is a valuable I'm sorry, he comes to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I'm sorry. I'm sorry, come to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says to my messenger of Allah last night or the day before I heard you recite this verse in which Allah subhanho wa Taala just revealed lantana

00:22:04--> 00:22:18

never acquired the high level of Eman until you sacrifice until you give up until you do what you love most? He said O Messenger of Allah from our understanding, does it mean that we'll never acquire I will never achieve a high level of Eman until I give up? I

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

said, Yes, your understanding is great.

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

Yes, Allah says apparently,

00:22:29--> 00:22:37

you will never change the high level of him and every single one of us wants to achieve. I don't want to be just a moment, I want to be on the highest level of

00:22:38--> 00:23:05

what I said before. I want to be a true moment, not just a moment. And this is your ambition or more ambition, ambition, every single believer to reach the highest level of Eman lanton ellenborough, you'll never ever reach you will never achieve the high level of Eman until you until you give up what you love most until you sacrifice what you love most. So I said O Messenger of Allah, if that's more understanding among the stand is correct. I only have one firm.

00:23:07--> 00:23:10

I'm sorry. I have one firm.

00:23:11--> 00:23:11

And it's the

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

emphasis.

00:23:16--> 00:23:22

And it is the most beloved was to me because it's a form that I love. And it's the only form in my life

00:23:24--> 00:23:33

that I had reviewed from today. It is for the sake of Allah give it up for the sake of Allah because I want to achieve the highest level of Eman that sacrifice

00:23:34--> 00:23:46

that sacrifice. Every single one of us is genuinely about connecting to Allah subhanho wa Taala and getting closer to Allah Zoda. But there's only one level that you could reach to until you start sacrificing more,

00:23:47--> 00:24:01

until you start giving up what you love most not allowed to give up or to give up the crumbs that you've got on your plate, to give you employees not to give the leftover money that you've got to give what you love most to sacrifice

00:24:02--> 00:24:10

to struggle as Ibraheem alehissalaam did. He was willing not to sacrifice his son and his son and his son.

00:24:11--> 00:24:32

In less than two weeks from now we'll be commemorating that great sacrifice. Yes, it's an up ha but it's also the day of sacrifice, a day of sacrifice, no sacrifice for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala we give up all we love most. And part of giving up is for you to give up your desires. How many times would you

00:24:33--> 00:24:42

block yourself? stop yourself from indulging in this haram and leave it for the sake of Allah see what Allah gives you in return.

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

My brothers in Islam Islam is about sacrifice. There isn't a stem spread to the east and the west because of the sacrifice of the Roma, homosassa Mendoza, Alberto de la la and the ones who came up to the Hill watch his predecessors and if you want them to spread, we need to

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

sacrifice. It's not enough to say Al Hamdulillah Muslim or pray my daily praise, that's the bare minimum sacrifice.

00:25:07--> 00:25:10

escalator, elevate yourself

00:25:12--> 00:25:23

and sacrifice is not limited to sacrificing worth sacrificing your your comfort your time whatever you have sacrificed for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Ibrahim was willing to sacrifice and some.

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

Some are brothers in Islam, Islam is about sacrifice. And the days are
