Vacca, Ibrahim.

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

You want to know the best the creation, the ACA Ibrahim.

00:02:31--> 00:02:35

And so I want to mention that some commentary

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

why the Prophet said that in my opinion.

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

And then I want to end

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

with saying that

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

I have some compelling evidence

00:02:50--> 00:02:55

that what that man said was true. Yeah. ferroviaria This is what I want to do Shama.

00:02:57--> 00:02:58

First of all,

00:02:59--> 00:03:01

the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him said.

00:03:03--> 00:03:17

One prayer in my Masjid is better than 1000 prayers in any other Masjid. LLN Masjid al Haram, except Masjid around the house of Abraham built

00:03:18--> 00:03:25

one prayer. Masjid Haram is better than 100,000 prayers in any of the masjid

00:03:27--> 00:03:30

and the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him said I am

00:03:32--> 00:03:48

the answer to the supplication that I will to Abby Ibrahim. I am the answer of the supplication of my father Ibrahim Alayhi. salat wa salam, so you're talking about his father.

00:03:51--> 00:03:54

Allah says according to lunasin

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

mout

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

every soul should taste some death, we all die.

00:04:03--> 00:04:14

There are some 7,700,000,000 people on earth today according to the scientists, there have been about 100 billion people from the beginning of time 100 billion people.

00:04:15--> 00:04:22

And if you are Muslim, you bear witness that all of these 100 billion people will be resurrected

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

will live again.

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

This will allow us the word kulu nevsun.

00:04:30--> 00:04:33

Mouth facial taste of death because Allah will resurrect us.

00:04:34--> 00:04:39

And if you understand the Hadith, you know that all of us will be resurrected naked

00:04:41--> 00:04:51

and the first one to be dressed on Yom Okayama Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam. We're making an argument why the Prophet said he Brahim Alayhi salat wa salam.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

There is a verse in the Quran that the same almost the same verse appears in the Bible

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

God did take Abraham as a Hello

00:05:05--> 00:05:09

top of the line but I Haemophilia a lots of people him as a fellow

00:05:11--> 00:05:38

in the Quran they say who know who then on the sorrow attack the do. Cool barrel militar Ibrahima hanifa. Womack Can I mean Missouri cane? They say be Christian or Jew if you're going to be guided alright? Allah told the Prophet No no, no say say there's no rather the religion of Abraham he was not at the polysius

00:05:39--> 00:05:45

you will go on a long list of things about the Prophet Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam.

00:05:46--> 00:05:56

Whenever I travel wherever I go, whatever contract go to. First thing I asked the organizers, please, when they take me to my hotel, show me the direction of the Qibla and

00:05:57--> 00:06:04

show me the direction of the house that Abraham built so that I can make my prayer and pray in that direction.

00:06:06--> 00:06:10

And I can give you a long list of things about Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam.

00:06:12--> 00:06:16

Yes, Allah did take Abraham as a friend.

00:06:20--> 00:06:22

But why did the Prophet say that?

00:06:23--> 00:06:25

I agree, whatever the prophets say.

00:06:27--> 00:06:29

What I'm saying to you here today

00:06:31--> 00:06:33

that the Prophet was humble

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

and always show deference. I give you a couple of examples.

00:06:40--> 00:06:54

Prophet Muhammad peace and blessing be upon him said that every human being that's born is touched by shaytaan at birth, except to human beings. Why are they a Salim salat wa salam and his mother Marian.

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

The Prophet said someone acts some

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

men acrimonious, who is the most honorable person you got to send me.

00:07:05--> 00:07:12

He didn't say me. He said Yusuf, the son of a prophet, the grandson of a prophet, the great grandson of a prophet.

00:07:13--> 00:07:21

So he always given some preference to prophets. For instance, he said, A Hubble Salam ala Lhasa salatu

00:07:22--> 00:07:38

wa Hubble cm Illa Allah Samuel dawu, the best, the most beloved prayer to to Allah is the prayer of David he could have said me, the best fast to Allah is the fastest that will serve the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him, always given preference.

00:07:39--> 00:07:41

I look to the Quran to find out

00:07:43--> 00:07:48

about Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam why he's so blessed. And I found this if

00:07:49--> 00:08:00

they apply but I hemara boobie, Kalimantan, Fatima hoonah. And when we gave Abraham test, he passed every test.

00:08:02--> 00:08:08

And I'm saying that now for us, for sure. We are tested every day.

00:08:09--> 00:08:33

To medical law DBS, the hill muku Allah Polish in Kadir, Allah, Allah tala will hire Leah Balu upon or you know, Angela or who arises, oh god for blessing being him whose hand is the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He created life and death to test you to see who's best and conduct. So that's what it is. We've been tested, Ibrahim alayhi salatu was tested.

00:08:34--> 00:08:39

And so we will be tested. In what way many ways.

00:08:40--> 00:08:43

I want to remind you be careful about test.

00:08:44--> 00:08:51

Because tests are very difficult and hard. Some people lose their faith because they're tested.

00:08:52--> 00:08:56

I remember a few years ago during the month of Ramadan.

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

I was at Reagan airport.

00:09:00--> 00:09:03

And I was sitting down reading my core and

00:09:05--> 00:09:12

the man came to me and said that is that the Quran you reading? I said yes. He said, I used to read the Quran.

00:09:14--> 00:09:26

He said Is this the month of Ramadan? I said yes. He said, Are you fasting? I said yes. He said you Muslim. I said yes. He said I used to fast. I used to read the Quran. I used to be Muslim.

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

So close my book,

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

a close my Korean and I began to talk to him.

00:09:34--> 00:09:35

I said What happened?

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

He said I became angry at Allah.

00:09:42--> 00:09:44

So I began to talk to him.

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

Try to

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

cater unto Him.

00:09:52--> 00:09:57

And while I was talking to him, the announcement came that my flight was boring

00:09:59--> 00:09:59

and I stood up and

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

said Sir, I have to go on the plane now my plane is about to board. And he told me, he said, I work here.

00:10:09--> 00:10:13

And that plane won't move until I tell it to move. Sit down.

00:10:14--> 00:10:16

I said yes sir.

00:10:17--> 00:10:21

And I sat down and I sat down because I know that the man needed something.

00:10:22--> 00:11:03

Maybe that day he came back to Islam. Maybe there's a lot of people you know a lot of Muslims you know who left the fold of Islam because they were tested. You don't think it's possible? Consider what the prophet said peace and blessings be upon him. He said. It's gonna come a time of tests. We used to be who right genome movement in millions. You see Katherine, a person will begin the morning believing in by the end of the night the disbelief person will believe at night in the morning time they disbelieve why test so I'm saying to you brothers and sisters know for a fact that you're going to be tested.

00:11:04--> 00:11:24

You're going to be tested with two children. You're going to be tested with your profiting I know Muslims who have come to me ma'am, I just got evicted from my apartment. I just lost my house. I lost my job but my my my mother died my husband died my my wife died my daughter died my son die.

00:11:26--> 00:11:28

He has one brother told me

00:11:29--> 00:11:32

he said he ma'am I take 27 different medications a day.

00:11:34--> 00:11:49

There's a brother in my community years ago told me ma'am, I had so many operations. And every time I have an operation the doctor takes something I don't have much left. But I said oh my luck. As long as I can praise you.

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

Gonna be tested by your health.

00:11:53--> 00:11:58

So many ways you're going to be tested. And I'm saying to you hold on.

00:12:00--> 00:12:04

Yes, yeah. ferroviario Best of mankind.

00:12:06--> 00:12:12

Prophet said best best of creation. veka Ibrahim, welcome de la robola Nomi

00:12:25--> 00:12:27

nurofen nerman Rahim Al Hamdulillah

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

number one sisters, let me

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

take a moment to go to the other side.

00:12:38--> 00:12:42

I know what it's like when people put on you something that you don't deserve.

00:12:44--> 00:12:49

I saw recently a post Imam Suraj Maharaj a scholar in Islam.

00:12:50--> 00:12:55

I don't say this out of humility. I'm not a scholar of Islam. I know what a scholarship is.

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

And a brother who studies but I know scholar.

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

I can point to you scholars. Souls embarrassing when people put on you something that you don't deserve.

00:13:07--> 00:13:11

But when that man said Cairo barrier verse of creation,

00:13:12--> 00:13:17

I would like to give you a compelling reason that that man was right.

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

A couple of things.

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

When you take Shahada

00:13:24--> 00:13:26

many of you were born Muslims.

00:13:27--> 00:13:31

People like me, ma'am Joe Hari, we accepted Islam.

00:13:33--> 00:13:47

As the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam said either m&r or Isa form former FBI fellow who as you learning whoever believes in Jesus and then believes in me will have a double reward. There are a lot of Muslims sitting in our ranks,

00:13:48--> 00:13:56

who used to be atheists used to be Christians used to be Jews, different religions and Allah guided them to Islam.

00:13:57--> 00:14:13

Never forget what the prophet said that Allah said, Yeah, he baddie kulu cuando Lune a lemon holiday to foster dooney all my slaves, every one of you are misguided unless I guide you therefore acts me and I will guide you love God.

00:14:17--> 00:14:22

But when you become Muslim, what you say?

00:14:24--> 00:14:28

Chateau la isla de la Santa Ana Muhammad Rasulullah.

00:14:29--> 00:14:33

In the very Shahada, you have to mention the Prophet sallallahu.

00:14:36--> 00:14:41

Some 1,800,000,000 Muslims,

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

you come to the masjid you pray. whatever country you go to, you go to Turkey, you go to Syria, you go to Jordan, you go to Mecca, you go to Indonesia, you go to Malaysia, go to Pakistan, you go to Sudan. You go to Somalia. Wherever you go, you see people praying basically the same

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

way, because the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam said, Sir, look under it. You saw the prayers you see me pray.

00:15:07--> 00:15:14

We love Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam. But we learn how to pray with the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam.

00:15:16--> 00:15:17

Not only that,

00:15:18--> 00:15:27

Allah says in Quran, men you tell soon for cordata Allah. whoever obeys the messenger has in fact obeyed Allah that's deep.

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

I'll give you another one.

00:15:31--> 00:15:44

You want to see how what Allah thinks about the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. Not only does he say Atilla t Rasulo bail law No, obey the messenger all throughout the Quran, Allah mentions the messenger, the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon them.

00:15:45--> 00:15:47

But one interesting verse,

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

the prophet Allah told the Prophet school

00:15:52--> 00:15:59

in contemptible Allah, only if the Kamala or your fellow come to Luma Allah for him say,

00:16:01--> 00:16:15

if you love Allah, Allah is telling the Prophet if you love Allah, Follow me Follow Mohammed, Allah, Allah will love you. Based on following the prophets of Allah Sunday. I can give you a million

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

examples why the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam herbaria I in disagreeing with the Prophet

00:16:24--> 00:16:28

but the best of creation, I leave you with one more.

00:16:30--> 00:16:31

And this is compelling,

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

you know,

00:16:36--> 00:16:37

on Yom Okayama

00:16:39--> 00:16:42

when people are dealing with the judgment,

00:16:43--> 00:16:45

judgment is about to happen.

00:16:47--> 00:16:56

And mankind, who did they go to? They don't go to political leaders. They don't go to presidents and prime ministers and kings and queens.

00:16:57--> 00:17:01

They don't go to business people. They don't go to scientists

00:17:03--> 00:17:04

who they go to for help.

00:17:06--> 00:17:07

They go to the profits,

00:17:09--> 00:17:10

six profits.

00:17:12--> 00:17:14

One the first one they're gonna go to

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

not because he wanted the greatest of the profits.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

But let's see what they say.

00:17:22--> 00:17:23

Yeah, Adam

00:17:25--> 00:17:39

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

It's Abdullah Mohammed.

00:18:35--> 00:18:39

And the Prophet said, Ana, and Allah how I'm that's me.

00:18:40--> 00:18:48

That's me. And the people will go to intercession to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and he will intercede my last one.

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

00:18:54--> 00:18:56

Prophet peace and blessings be upon them.

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

and

00:19:04--> 00:19:07

knock out the gate of gender.

00:19:08--> 00:19:10

And the angel said,

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

Men enter Who are you?

00:19:14--> 00:19:17

Allah Mohammed. I will say Mohammed

00:19:18--> 00:19:25

00:19:29--> 00:19:32

Let no one in general before you

00:19:33--> 00:19:35

00:19:47--> 00:19:50

Let me know I do come upon the Hubba ilahi. Meanwhile, he

00:19:57--> 00:19:57

You're not a true believer, you don't have true faith until I'm Mohammed is loved more to you than your own parents, your children and all of mankind.
