Ibrahim 35-52 Word Analysis and Tafsir 35-37
was a bit lame in a SharePoint is legit Bismillah AR hain
lesson number 131 sort of Abraham is number 35 to 52.
What is Allah Ibrahim? And mentioned when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam said, Robbie oh my lord adrl head al Bella the Amina, my Lord, make this city secure word, you know Bernie, within a year, a narrow bundle of snam and keep me and my son's away from worshipping idols.
This and the following if they refer to Ibrahim or his salams settlement of his son is married early silent atmaca that how Ibrahima has settled his son is married early silent atmaca with his mother, whose name was hudgell.
After the flood, at the time of New Zealand, what happened schilke was completely wiped off, it was completely finished.
But we saw that very soon shook started again amongst people,
which is why the people are the people of the mood even they were destroyed. Whereas they were the descendants of who of the people of New Harrison and the survivors of the flood were only those people who believed in the oneness of Allah soprano.
So we see that the shirt was completely eliminated, but it rose again, it grew again.
And it continued until the time of Ibrahim alayhis salaam and also afterwards, also in surrounding areas.
And Ibrahim alayhis, salaam, Allah subhanaw taala sent him to establish the hate.
Because up until now Shinnecock was being passed down from one generation to the next. The people their religion was off ship. Their government was also with ship, their practices, their traditions, everything was based on shake.
And if you think about it for shake, people have had no evidence whatsoever. Which is why whenever people are asked why they worship idols, why they worship others besides Allah, what is their response, that this is what we found our parents doing. This is what people have always done. Our ancestors, this is what they used to practice.
Instead of total of 22, a loss of penalties has been ALU. In nowadays another another omoton were in narla, a 30 martyrdom that they say indeed we found our forefathers upon religion, and we are in their footsteps guided, this is what we do. We found our forefathers doing this, and we are doing the exact same thing. So for sure, there is absolutely no evidence except that people have practiced and it has been passed down from one generation to the next.
But on the other hand for the hate. There is evidence were in the creation that our last presenter that has created the heavens and the earth. Similarly, in the revelation that Allah subhanaw taala has said, There is evidence of the heat
and also in certain places, certain sites, certain places, what are they evidence of the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala.
And these places at the top is what the Kaaba debate Allah
and Allah subhanaw taala had Ibrahim are listed and settled his son and wife in Mecca. So that there's a nation that believes in monotheism and practices that as well who worships of last penetrated exclusively.
Because where there are so many cities where there are so many people, where people are worshipping idols, where people are volunteers, there must be a place where people are only worshipping Allah soprano.
So Makkah was established as what, as evidence for the heat
as a place where people can refer to and say that, yes, people have always worshipped Allah soprano.
And remember that Adam or s&m also, he constructed the karma. And then after the flood, the cover was reconstructed, and Ibrahima has also reconstructed the karma.
But the construction of the karma was not the only thing. People had to live there because only then others would come over there.
So Ibrahim alayhis salam, he did not just go and build the cover. What did he do? He settled his son over there. He made him live over there. So that the city becomes populated with who those who worship Allah alone. The city is well known for what for the worship of a loss predator alone.
So Ibrahim, a listener he brought his wife had
His son is married, and is married or Islam at that time, he was only an infant.
And he brought them both to the barren valley of Makkah. There was no water. There were no plants. There were no people. There were no birds. There was nothing, nothing at all.
A barren, dry Valley, which was extremely hot.
This is where Ibrahim Earnest said and brought his wife and son and he left them there. And after some time, he returned
and when is married or insulin was older, when he was 13 years old. Then what did Ibrahim do? He constructed the garba with him.
So the first time that he brought his wife and son over here, when he was leaving, he made this term what is called an evil or him or a bitter Alhamdulillah Bella the eminent word you know, Binney urbania a novel Astana.
And according to others, Ibrahim renesola, made the store when he returned, and he constructed the cargo with his married.
So what are the two opinions? First of all, he made this there are when he came the first time and then he was leaving.
And secondly, when he came back when he returned, constructed the Carver with his son, and then he made this dura upon the completion of the construction.
Now remember, the soda is a murky soda, and it was revealed at a time when there was a lot of opposition
and the machine of maca, they're being reminded through this of the way of Ibrahim rossella.
And they're being reminded of the history of the city.
That the ship that you're committing over here, it has no proof it has no evidence.
Because maca was established exclusively for what? For the worship of Allah subhanaw taala alone.
So what if Allah evil or Hebrew? And recall when Ibrahim on his Salaam said, meaning when he prayed? What did he say that or be oh my lord ager, I heard al balada make this city with city, the city of Mecca. Make it permanent, peaceful.
I mean, is one that has a man in it, one that is full of peace.
So make the city peaceful and secure. Why did he make this door?
Because think about it, he was going to leave his son and his wife.
And only if that city is secure and peaceful, then his family would be safe.
So he prays to Allah that make the city mean, peaceful, secure, safe.
Word, you know, bunny, and save me keep me away. Would you nobody from the roof letters g moon bear from the word jump, which is used for side and Jennifer is to stay away from something to keep away from something
so old, you know Bernie, keep me away. Well, Bernie Yeah, and my son's meaning my descendants because a person's descendants. How are they recognized? Through the suns because it's the man who takes the lineage forward. So what do you do bunny warbreaker keep me and my son's away from what a narrow poodle of snam that we worship idols. keep us safe from worship idols keep us away from it.
bunnies bernia is actually Bernini, it's actually burnin and the near at the end Bernina is a florala even
and then burnin and yeah with the column exchange into baniya my sons
so keep us away from the worship of idols because we have come here to worship you alone.
And this prayer of Ibrahim wrestler it was granted. Makkah was made a secure city it was made a city which is amad which has Amman in it.
In the Quran we read LLM euro and nirjala how Roman I mean, have they not seen that we have made MCE a secure century warhead and Bella does I mean, which is why we see that facade and corruption of any sort is not allowed in the city of Mecca. Till today it's not permissible.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said at the conquest of Mecca, that beware Allah made this down a century when he created the heavens and the earth. It is supposed to be a city that is safe and secure from when, from the day that the heavens and the earth were created.
And it is sacred by Allah decree up until the Day of Resurrection. From the beginning of time till the end. This city is supposed to
Be safe and secure.
And he said, fighting in Makkah was not permitted for anyone before me. And it was made legal for me for only a few hours or so on that day. When, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam conquered Mecca,
no doubt, it is at this moment, a sanctuary by Allah's decree until the Day of Resurrection. So it is not allowed to uproot its thorny shrubs, to hunt its game to pick up its lost objects except by announcing it or to uproot its trees. It's not allowed to even uproot the trees of
our best the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his uncle, he said, except his little grass is clean is said to be lemon grass, and the people of Macedon used to use it. So he said, except the lemongrass Allah's Messenger, as they use it in their houses and their grapes. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Yes, except for this particular grass this you can uproot. But otherwise you cannot cut out any trees, any grass, anything from this land. Because this place is supposed to be a place of Amman, even though he wrestled and prayed for Amman, and look at how a lot of parents are granted this, da, he fulfilled it.
And the second thing that he brought humor is an embrace for over here is that keep us away from the worship of idols. Because we have come here to worship you alone, we have established this house for your worship alone, so keep us away from the worship of idols.
But I'll be oh my lord, in the hoonah indeed, they meaning indeed the idols of Lenin, they have led astray kathira millionaires, many amongst people, many amongst people have been misled by idols. Now person might say that idols are inanimate objects, how can they mislead others? Again, the attraction that is in the idols, it diverts people from the worship of Allah, Allah alone.
So the idols have become a cause of misleading many people. They are a cause of misleading many people, people have been going towards a lot they should have been worshipping Allah alone. But when they saw the idols, they got lost in them.
So these idols, they have been a cause of misguidance for many amongst mankind.
Samantha berani so whoever follows me, meaning any person who follows me in what intro hate in worshipping Allah alone for inner harmony than indeed he is from me, meaning he is from my religion. He belongs to my community.
Woman, our Swanee and whoever disobeys me, meaning whoever does chick for in nucca her food over him then indeed you are forgiving, and you're also merciful.
If you notice over here, Ibrahim LSM does not say that those people who disobey me those people who do shake, punish them gerszten What does he say? For in Nicola photo Rahim? Indeed, you are Forgiving and Merciful.
This was the compassion and well wishing that Ibrahim alayhis salam had towards the people. He did not pray against them.
And we see that restart SLM. He will also make a similar supplication on the day of judgment and sort of the metadata at 118. What do we learn, he will say, into the boom for in the home or that if you punish them, they're your servants. You have the right to do so. What in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but if you forgive them for in under a diesel hurricane, then indeed it is you who is Exalted in Might and you are the wise.
So we see that April here listener, what does he do over here? He's making the route to a loss of private data. And he says that those people who follow me there of my own and the people who don't, then you are Forgiving and Merciful.
This shows to us that we should also have the same kind of well wishing towards
Because until we wish well for them, we cannot convey the message to them.
This theme that our last panel Tara has sent, it has not come to travel people, it has not come to bring the curse of Allah upon them. But rather it has come to take the people out of darkness into the light.
And any person who calls people to Allah, what should he do? He should be kind and gentle towards them. He should worry about the hereafter. He should be concerned about that. Not that he's always threatening them.
What burner Oh our Lord in need. Indeed I asked can too. I have settled from the route at Racine Catherine. Second Muskaan home. So I have settled miseria de France
My children, meaning some of my children, I have made them to settle where we were then in a valley that is lady these are very that does not produce any cultivation lady other than these are in possessor of plants have cultivation of crop. So this land, this valley does not produce any plants, and I have made some of my children settle over here because his son his marine was in Makkah and his other son his hair colors were in Russian. So, not all my children but some of them.
And wedding is from the newsletters. While Dahlia it's a singular off. Oh dear.
Oh dear. Oh dear is valleys and wedding is a singular form. This is how you write it.
So I have made them to settle in an uncultivated Valley, which is the city of Makkah. Why is it described as Lady these other? Because nothing grows over there. Hardly anything goes over there? Hardly.
But I have made them to settle over here. Because Where are they? This place is in the near basically your house Alma Harlem, the sacred, your sacred house, which is garbage.
So I have brought them here to this uncultivated Valley, so that they are near your sacred house. Why have I brought them here
robina or our Lord leukaemias salata so that they established a sauna,
I have made them settle in this place, so that they established a solid,
were in the sacred house.
Federal, so you make us either 10 millionaires hearts from young people, meaning some hearts,
meaning some people have either is a plural of for ad, which is hard. So as a determiner, nurse meaning of either 10 min of either the nurse.
So make some hearts of people that we lay him inclined towards,
because they are living in a place that is completely barren. That is not attractive at all. Generally, people are attracted by what, by the beauty of a particular land.
There is a waterfall or it's extremely green, or the land is very good. You can grow a lot over there. But this land, it's uncultivated. You cannot cultivate anything on it. There is nothing over here. So how are people going to come? Nobody's going to be interested in this particular land.
So my children who are living over here, make them so good, that the hearts of people are inclined towards them. Because people are not going to come for this land. But they will come for my children.
Like, for example, there are certain places where the climate is extremely harsh, extremely harsh, and you wonder sometimes Why do people live here?
Don't you wonder?
Like, for example, sometimes in certain areas where it goes to minus 40 minus 50, you're like, Why do people live here? I mean, is there less land in the world? Out of all places? Why did they choose to live here? Why? Because of some work, because of some business, because of some mind, because of some work that's going on over there, which brings them despite the harsh climate, they will come and live over there, they will come and settle over there.
So this land has nothing. So my children who are living over here make the hearts of people inclined towards
that we is from the room fetters where we are Howard
and Howard literally is to fall. What does it mean to fall and who we from the same route however, we have the word who we is Lulu minella Aloo it is to descend from a height to descend from a height. And then this word is also used for to incline towards someone with love with fondness.
You know how to say fall in love. So literally fall in love. So make the hearts of people inclined towards them fall in love towards them. And for the love of my children, people will come over here, when they will come over here they will find out about the worship of Allah subhanaw taala alone. What zoku and provide them Mina summarize from the fruits that are under him your spoon so that they are grateful.
We see over here that Ibrahim Renison I mentioned the purpose behind why he settled his descendants in Makkah and what is that purpose? legal team was solid. I have settled my children over here near your sacred house. Why? Leo Kamal salata so that they can establish this honor.
What does it show to us that when a person that's close to the masjid, the
It's easier for him to establish the sooner it's easier for him to pray in the masjid.
Yes, definitely, if a person lives far, and he comes for the Salah, he will get more reward. Yes, that is understood. However, when a person lives closer to the masjid, it's much easier for him.
Then we also see over here, the liberal humanist salon, he made this trial when he returned to Makkah to build a cabin.
And this, if we take the other opinion for the first time that he made that he made that door, when he settled his family over there when he when he left her job and is married. And when he was leaving, then he made a turn. So when he returned, and he built a car, but then he made the store.
So he made the car when, when he returned, and he built the Kaaba with his son.
Now, upon the completion of construction of the Carver, he prays to almost 100.
But if you think about it, this house that he builds, which houses it, is it so that he can live over there with his family? Is it so that he can have his dream house on a big lot? away from people? No, this is so that Allah subhanaw taala is worshipped over there. Today, one of our greatest worries is what? making our own house buying our own house, people hardly graduate and where they're thinking about how I'm going to make enough money to be able to afford a house to be able to pay off a house.
This is what concerns so many people today. Every other Muslim is concerned with this issue. My house, I don't own a house. I don't own a house.
But we see that Ibrahim or listen to him. He never made a house for himself. We see him he's always traveling, going from one place to the other between a sham and Makkah. And when he comes to Makkah, what house does he build a house for himself? No, the house of Allah sprinter.
And the fact is that when you give importance to the house of Allah, more than the importance that you give to your house, that shows the commitment that you have for the deen
many times what is it that prevents people from coming to the masjid? What is it that prevents people from volunteering at the masjid? teaching children at the masjid?
I'm too busy at my house. I have to clean I have to cook I've looked after how to do this how to do that. So much of our time and our energy is spent in maintaining our houses at the cost of what? ignoring the house of Allah.
You know, sometimes I'm amazed when you go to the washrooms the way people leave the toilet seats wet, and the counters wet. Would you ever do that in your own house? The way that people leave shoes just lying around? Would you ever do that in your own house. People are so concerned about how their houses are looking. They're supposed to be clean. Everything is supposed to be in order. But when it comes to the machine, we don't give any priority to that. But if Rahim, Islam he was the house of Allah, so that people can come and worship over there. And he also mentions why he left his wife and son in Makkah, so that they can establish the solar. Many times we see that husbands men, they're
living away from their wives and their children. Why? For work, to make money.
But we see that Ibrahim an s&m he is away from his wife and his son, for the sake of work.
For the sake of work of Allah.
He's working for the dean. That's why he's away from his wife and listen.
And we also see that Ibrahim realism he prays that the hearts of people are inclined towards his descendants. Now, does this mean that he is looking for self glorification through the he wants to be glorified through Deen that through the dean, his children become famous? Is that what his goal is? No. The reason why he prays that the hearts of people be inclined towards his children is because there was nothing really special about that land. There was nothing really special about that land. And the only thing that would attract people to come over there was who
the only thing that would attract people to come to Makkah was was the land or the people, the people.
And we see this is something very important. Because we see that there are some buildings, which are apparently very glamorous, they're very decorated, such as cathedrals, such as temples, but when you go over there, mostly these buildings are empty. You will only find them full when when perhaps there's a wedding or perhaps there's a service or you know, on certain occasions you will find them for but generally you will find them empty. But the massages of Allah, you might not find them to be that beautiful to be that well decorated.
Although now a lot of emphasis is put on decorating the masjid, which is not something that is recommended. Because once something was placed before the Prophet subtle all the sudden, which was patterned while he was praying and he asked for it to be removed because he said it distracted my solder. So now that we have all golden lights and all of these things all over the mustard, how are we meant to have kosher and Ursula.
But anyway, if you compare a mustard with some other building a mustard is generally very plain, very simple. But what do you have in the mustard? What do you have in the mustard?
Now, if those people are good, if they have good o'clock, only then others are going to come? Isn't it so.
But if the people of that Masjid are not welcoming, if they don't have a good behavior, if they don't have good o'clock, then what's going to happen? Are people going to come or not? They're not going to come? They won't be interested at all.
So we see that the people that inhabit a place, the people that manage a building, the people that work in a building, who study in a building, they are the ones by home, other people either feel invited, or they feel rejected. So we have to check ourselves that when we come to this place, how is our behavior? How is our behavior? Does our behavior welcome other people? Or is it that because of our behavior, when other people come to say never again, I'm going over there? Never again, I'm going over there because the washrooms are so filthy, why can we not clean up?
We don't clean the masjid, our behavior, our attitude is not such that would invite people to come. Unfortunately, it is such attitude that is going to repulse people, we have to check ourselves.
How are we maintaining the machine? How are we behaving in this machine? Are people invited? Or are they turned off?
Recently, I visited a school just to go and see what was in there. And I didn't make any appointment. I just walked in and I said, you know, I'm interested, can you please just show me around. And this lady was like, I'm not the supervisor over here. I'm just a teacher. But if you want I can show you around quickly. I said, Sure. Go ahead.
And she welcomed me in. And she took me around the entire building all of the classrooms. And as I walked into each classroom, the teacher was there, the children were there. Nobody looked at me with that I you know, who is this person? They never made an appointment. We were never told they're coming. And the dollars go inside, look inside, look how the children are studying, look at their books, look at their shelves, look at everything. And this was without an appointment.
And I was thinking if I walked into an Islamic Institute, an Islamic organization and I asked her Can I please look around? Can you please show me what services you have? So that I know whether my needs can be fulfilled over here or I need to go elsewhere? I was thinking about where is it that I could go and I would find people who would welcome me with a smile.
This is something that we need to take seriously. Because the people who inhabit a place either they welcome people or they reject them.
Ibrahim renesola makes us do our especially that Oh Allah make the hearts of people inclined towards
this is something very important. And we need to play this role. Every single day very consciously. Ibrahima listener was commanded as we learned early in sort of Baccarat that to help clean my house lithophane wallarah caffeine workers sudduth clean the mustard, clean the house of Allah. Because if you don't clean it, how are people going to come? So we need to be extremely careful.
Another thing that we see in this ayah is that he prays to Allah subhanaw taala that his descendents be given be provided with what? A similar
now if you look at it, Ibrahim al Islam is concerned about the health of his children.
Because think about it Makkah is a barren Valley, nothing grows over there.
Nothing grows over there. He doesn't say that. He doesn't say dried fruit, what does he say? produce because fresh produce fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, they are essential for good health.
Very, very important. Very important. So we have to make sure that in our diet, we include such things. Look at what our humaneness is praying for this yellow, where are they going to get this from? In this barren Valley, you provide it for them.
Secondly, another point of observation is that he is asking for something that is impossible. Because fruits, they do not grow in a desert, isn't it? They don't grow in deserts. Where do they go? Where do they grow in perhaps rain forests.
Where it rains a lot where the land is very fertile. So he is praying that something impossible be made possible.
If you heard someone saying something like this in the middle of the desert, what would you think there's something wrong.
But we see that also personalizada fulfilled his door. How
that when people from all over would come to Macau? What would they bring with them?
What would they bring with them?
And we see that in Mecca, you don't just find fruits of a particular area, but you find fruits of different different areas, different different areas from all over, they come over there.
This might not be that strange for us, because we live in places where fruit and vegetables are brought in from all over the world every day. But this has been happening since the very beginning in the city of Makkah, what's the lesson in this for us?
The lesson is that when we do something for the dean, we need to have a high goal. We need to have a vision.
What's our problem? Generally, we don't have a high goal. We depend on ourselves. We depend on people, we depend on money, because of which we set very low goals. Because of which sometimes we reduce our work, we reduce our efforts thinking we are not capable to do this. But what do we see over here
that you have to start the work and Allah is your provider,
you have to take the initiative, and Allah will complete your work for you.
Ibrahim alayhis salam brings his son to a place where there is no person where nothing grows, there is no water.
But he knew that if Allah caused a spring to gush forth, then obviously he can give much more. And if Allah wants us to do this, then he is the provider and he can fulfill our needs. So the lesson that we learn over here is that we need to set high goals, when it comes to working for the team. Do not depend on yourself, do not depend on logistics do not depend on your finances.
Because you are not the provider, you're only a worker, you're only someone who is working. So continue your work, have a high goal, have a high vision, and Allah will fulfill your work for you. Because Allah is a provider, you're not the provider.
And another thing that we see over here, that Ibrahim really center, when he prays for fruit for his children, what does he say? La Jolla home, the Ashkelon so that they are grateful. Why does he say that?
Because you see, there are many blessings, which we have, but we take them for granted.
Like, for example, the sun and the moon, the night and the day, the air that we breathe, we know their blessings. But we never think about them, we take them all for granted. But if we are given a blessing that is unusual, that is unique, that we didn't have before and all of a sudden we have it, or we desperately want it, then what happens,
then what happens? Immediately we feel grateful. Generally we'll become very used to blessings we take them for granted. But when there is something different when there's something special than what happens, we feel gratitude. We feel very grateful. So Abraham, Uranus and embrace that keep giving them blessings, especially fruits, because they're unusual for them, so that they remain grateful.
Because when a person is grateful, then he becomes positive.
We see that liberal humanism is making a door and many times we refrain from making certain doors because we think that it's impossible. It cannot happen. The doctor told me this is not possible. Or the finances, the spreadsheet, the accountant he says it's not possible.
But the fact is that anything is possible for almost
You become committed, you become sincere, you put your best and Allah will complete your work for you. Allah will fulfill that for you.
And we see how Abraham Edison's daughter was granted
