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

relay Michigan rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

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

lesson number 140 sudo to natural eye number 120.

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

In the Ibrahima kana or meten.

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

Indeed, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was a leader. He was an owner

00:00:21--> 00:00:33

on Italy lay, he was devoutly obedient to Allah hanifin inclining toward truth, what am your communal mushrikeen and he was not of those who associate others with Allah.

00:00:34--> 00:00:50

Ibrahim or this anime is mentioned over here as an example for us that look at what a grateful servant he was. Then with everything that he was given, he used it to do something. And what did he do? He obeyed a little surprising. Third,

00:00:51--> 00:01:05

he was Arnica. lilla. He was obedient to Allah. And this is the kind of gratitude that is also expected from us. That the blessings that we have been given we must use them to be grateful not to be ungrateful.

00:01:06--> 00:01:24

The first quality over a hammer the cylinder is mentioned over here is that Ibrahim was an oma. The word oma has several meanings in the Arabic language. And especially in the Quran, the word oma is used in four ways. First of all, the word oma is used for religion fit.

00:01:25--> 00:01:41

Similarly, the word oma is also used for a period of time, a time period, a term and the word oma is also used for a leader. The word oma is also used for who a leader, a model leader of goodwill,

00:01:42--> 00:01:58

someone who is worthy of being emulated. Someone who is worthy of being followed. Why? Because he has many good qualities. And the word Omar is also used for a group of people.

00:01:59--> 00:02:27

So when the word oma is used for a leader, we're focusing on the third meaning right now leader, what kind of a leader is it? Because for leader, there are many words in the Arabic language, mm oduah many words, but in particular, the word oma has been used. Because just as oma is a group of many, similarly, oma is a leader that has many good qualities in him.

00:02:28--> 00:02:41

A leader who has who comprises in his character, all the good qualities of a model of an excellent example of someone to follow in every way.

00:02:43--> 00:02:52

And fourthly, the word oma is also used for who? A nation jamara Cathedral, a group of people that are many in number.

00:02:54--> 00:03:08

So why is it Brahimi? Listen, I'm called an oma because he was like a nation. He was one individual, but he was equal to an entire nation, in what way in his qualities,

00:03:09--> 00:03:17

that he possessed such qualities in just one person, that would be shared amongst a group of people normally,

00:03:18--> 00:04:12

if you think of it, sometimes one person is found to be very generous, another person is found to be very hospitable, and other person is found to be very tolerant, or very soft hearted, very tender hearted, or very grateful. And rarely ever do you find a person with many qualities, isn't it? So you will find a person known for one quality, but everyone here has seen him. He was like an aroma, that he had so many qualities in him, that would be shared amongst many people altogether. That in his worship, in his obedience, in his goodness in his good work, in his accomplishments, he was parallel to a group of righteous. He did what a nation would do.

00:04:13--> 00:04:18

as an individual, he achieved what an entire people would achieve.

00:04:19--> 00:04:32

He did the work of an entire nation. How that Ibrahima has Sonam. He established two main centers were in Makkah, and also in a sham

00:04:33--> 00:04:56

that where he established one of his sons in Makkah. in Arabia in hijas, he also established one of his sons were in the area of a sham. And in both these places, there was the heat there was a worship of Allah subhanaw taala. Why, because of the efforts and sacrifice of an individual of one person

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

and generally such changes

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

brought by who? An entire nation.

00:05:04--> 00:05:27

But we see that Ibrahim alayhis salam alone as an individual brought an entire revolution that changed the course of human history, you can say, because of the efforts of just one person. So he is called an oma because he had many qualities in one individual. He achieved what a nation would achieve. He did what a nation would do.

00:05:28--> 00:05:48

And as far as his qualities are concerned, his good traits are concerned. Even a hero in Islam is described many times in the Quran in good terms, how that first one we learned through through bacala i 130. The last panel data says work by this profane viktoriia he was chosen. He was Muslim.

00:05:49--> 00:05:56

What no Phil accurately luminous it in and he will be of the slyly hain in the hereafter. Mustafa solly

00:05:58--> 00:06:08

in sort of earlier one is 67 we learned what I can kind of hanifin Muslim and what am I kind of middle Michigan three more qualities. He was Hanif he was Muslim he was not mistaking.

00:06:10--> 00:06:22

Similarly integrated Missa I 125. We learn what the hell Allahu Ibrahima Khalida, he was also a friend of Allah. Now, how often do you find one individual with so many qualities?

00:06:23--> 00:06:42

Similarly, in total anomaly number 75 when he akuna Minal Mussolini, so that he would be of those who have your cane, so he was someone who had your cane as well. Then we learn in sort of tober in the Ibrahima a wagon haleem i 114. He was aware, and he was highly

00:06:44--> 00:06:57

similarly in sort of route is 75 we learn in the Ibrahima halimun aware one muneeb more qualities of Ibrahim al Islam, you know the meanings of these terms right away. Helene Mooney.

00:06:58--> 00:07:06

Similarly, we learned about Miriam I have 41 in Newcastle Deacon nebia he was a deist and he was also in a be

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

interested throttle MBA. I have 51 we learn what are called the Athena Ibrahim urrutia, whom in Kabul, he was someone who had rushed guidance, right mindedness, good conduct, good behavior.

00:07:20--> 00:07:41

Similarly insulted uncouth, i a 27. We learned well, we'll have an adult who is harkaway or COVID with your Alevi the Yeti in Nevada, well, kita that Prophethood and scripture was in whose descendants of Ibrahim are listening, what are they no edrophonium he was given his reward in this linear way in no philosophical dilemma, Salim.

00:07:43--> 00:08:20

interrupts are fat I 111. Allah subhanaw taala describes what a human is and as in the human rebellion, meaning he was of our servants who is a movement instead of najem is 37. He is described as what Abraham a lady with Ebola he who fulfilled he is described as someone who is righteous, someone who submits to a loss of character, someone who is very tender hearted, very caring. Someone who turns to Allah who prays to Allah, Who depends on Allah, who seeks help from Allah and who trusts on Allah that Allah will guide him.

00:08:21--> 00:08:38

So Ibrahim alayhis salam was an entire oma. And what was the reason behind that what made him so successful? What made him the possessor of so many good qualities? The fact that he was God intended that he was obedient almost

00:08:39--> 00:09:14

on it is one who is multi year, one who is devoutly obedient, constantly obedient, one who has made obedience compulsory on himself. He was always obedient to Allah. And he was also Hanif, he was also unswerving upright, who is Hanif? Hanif is understood in two ways. Basically, if you look at the literal meaning of the word Hanif literally the word Hanif is used for a person who leaves always all religions everything, and he inclines to only one he adopts only one

00:09:15--> 00:09:22

meaning his religion is distinct. He is firm upon it. This is where Hanif is.

00:09:23--> 00:09:41

Generally, what happens if you go around? You can't tell what the religion of a person is. You can't tell if they're Muslim. You can't tell if they're non Muslim, you can tell if they are a Christian, or atheist or what sometimes by the appearance of a person, or by the words that he uses, isn't.

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

Such a person does not have

00:09:45--> 00:09:53

an effect, who's someone who is firm on his religion, who leaves everywhere and he only adopts the way of his religion.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

And basically, Hanif is someone who is so firm on his way

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

That if anything comes towards him, what does he do? He just moves aside. He just avoids it.

00:10:07--> 00:10:21

Like Imagine you are going somewhere you're driving and somebody is coming from the opposing side. One way is that you just stand in front of them and you hit them and the other is that you just avoid them, turn away from them just turn aside. This is where Hanif is.

00:10:23--> 00:10:35

Secondly, the word Hanif was a term that was used amongst the Arabs to describe a person who never did check. Who would not worship idols, but a person who would only worship Allah subhanaw taala, the creator,

00:10:36--> 00:10:48

a person who will perform the pilgrimage, who alternate circumcision. And this term is used many, many times the Quran and it's always used in contradiction to shake.

00:10:50--> 00:10:56

So Ibrahima Hassan was a Hanif, what am your communion with Ricky and he was not of those who do shake.

00:10:57--> 00:11:02

So he was so obedient to Allah subhanaw taala that a group combined would be that obedient.

00:11:03--> 00:11:42

He was an oma. He was so obedient, that a group combined would be that obedient, because when Allah subhanaw taala said to him a slim, what did he say? a slum to I have already submitted, I submit, I will do whatever you say. But many times, what is our behavior, that when we learn, instead of being grateful, instead of doing something, we come up with excuses, or we want to change the law of Allah. This was not the way of a Brahim medicine. What made him so successful was his obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. No excuses, no disobedience, nothing whatsoever.

00:11:43--> 00:12:01

And we see that the machine of Makkah, as well as the youth and the nosara, all of them they claimed to be on the religion of Ibrahim ERISA. But Allah subhanaw taala tells us about his reality that Who was he that he was an oma, and he was honey if he was fine if he was honey, he never did chick

00:12:03--> 00:12:50

shakeela Lee unami he, he was grateful for his favorites, whose favors the favors of Allah subhanaw taala, upon him, shackled, and the word share kealan because it comes first, it expresses the meaning of that he was grateful every time that a blessing was given to him. For every little blessing that he was given, he was grateful. And as a result, he turba who have chosen, Allah selected him for what? For his work, he gave him more opportunities to do good. He chose him for Prophethood he chose him and he gave him many blessings in the dunya he made his children righteous were her there who illustrata Muslim and he guided him to a straight but what does it show to us

00:12:52--> 00:13:13

that when a person is grateful, then he is given the trophy to do more than Allah chooses him. Allah gives him the opportunity, the ability to obey Him. And when a person is ungrateful, when a person is not thankful for the blessings that Allah has given him, then they'll feel this taken away from him.

00:13:14--> 00:13:18

And if you look at it in a humorous manner, what kind of blessings was he given?

00:13:19--> 00:13:30

Think about it. Allah says Shakira on the unknown, he was very grateful for the blessings that Allah gave him. Tell me what the blessings that he was given. What do you consider blessings to be?

00:13:31--> 00:13:41

Your parents? were his parents, believers. Were the kind towards him. No. similarity, what do we think are blessings?

00:13:43--> 00:14:12

Your own house, your own comfort? Did he have that? No. If we look at the serial Ebrahim or listener, constantly, he is traveling from a sham do maka all the time. We learned so many times he came and visited is married and he said, I'm in Makkah. Now traveling is not easy, especially traveling at that day and age. At that time, it must have been extremely difficult.

00:14:13--> 00:14:38

Similarly, we think that blessings are that you get to eat a lot of food, that your life is very easy for you everything you want to do. You have it. Every wish of yours is fulfilled. But we see that Ibrahim Ernestina, he suffered a lot. He made some requests. Like for example, when he prayed that the people of loot be forgiven, were they forgiven? No, the punishment was sent upon them.

00:14:39--> 00:15:00

Similarly, we see that many times he's alone, that he is just with one wife, or with one child. And we think that blessings are to be with so many people to be surrounded by people all the time. that things are that everything is according to our desires. If this is a criteria for blessings, then Abraham Lincoln was not given to us.

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

What are blessings,

00:15:04--> 00:15:10

blessings are that a person has given a diet that a person has given the company of the righteous, even if they're few,

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

even if it's only one person.

00:15:14--> 00:15:29

When he left Iraq when he left his family who came with him, it was only his nephew and his wife. Two people came with him. But he took that as a blessing, even if that was very less.

00:15:30--> 00:16:03

And when he was living with his wife, sada did he have any children? No. What do we think blessings are to have children. But he was grateful for the fact that he had a lovely wife. Because they said that Salah is from Sulu, which is to be happy. And they said that she was extremely beautiful, extremely beautiful. So he was grateful for the fact that he had a lovely wife. He wasn't just stuck on Oh my God, I don't have any children. What's going to happen? And when he was grateful, Allah subhanaw taala gave him children.

00:16:05--> 00:16:29

Similarly, in his old age, when he was given children, he didn't think that how am I going to look after the child? Because here's what people think if they're too old, having children is a burden. He didn't think like that. shakin only under me. Why? Because he was grateful for whatever blessings that he was given. Even if they were less, even if they were little, he knew they were big blessings.

00:16:30--> 00:16:43

And in this sort of what have we learned, that all of the material blessings, eventually yen further, they will be gone, they will expire. But will matter in the law, he back and whatever is with a lie is going to remain it's going to last.

00:16:45--> 00:17:08

So he was grateful for the blessing of hedaya. For the blessing of the work of Dean that Allah soprano data was taking for me. He was grateful for that Shakeel only under me he and when he was grateful Allah chose him. Allah gave him one opportunity after the other, one trophy after the other, one good task to perform after another.

00:17:09--> 00:17:38

We complain sometimes that we don't know what to do. We want to serve the team. We want to go volunteer, and we don't know what to do. Perhaps because you opportunities that come our way. We are ungrateful for that. We should be grateful for whatever we have been given anything and everything we are given. Even before we learned that being content with whatever you have is the greatest blessing. It's Rena, it's contentment.

00:17:39--> 00:17:52

Also, we learned that the Brahim medicina he had a very clear vision he did not doubt everything that came to him he took it positively that it's coming from my lord in a in a lie You know, they want everything that comes from my Lord, I am the desires for that.

00:17:54--> 00:17:57

So is it available wahoo in a sort of monster thing.

00:17:58--> 00:18:25

So the lesson in this ayah for us is that when Allah has given us blessings, what should we do? Be grateful? How? By taking advantage of them, by being content with them. And by using them by keeping our eyes on what we have been given, not on what we don't have. And when this becomes our attitude, that Allah will give us more, Allah will give us the ability to serve his team.

00:18:27--> 00:18:42

What are they now who and we gave him fit dunia in this world has done a good he was given good reward even in this dunya. And what was that good reward? What was that good reward that Ibrahima listener was given in dystonia,

00:18:43--> 00:18:57

that he was given children, but not just children, but righteous children, knowledgeable children, patient and tolerant for varying children. And not just children, but also grandchildren.

00:18:59--> 00:19:14

He was chosen, he was selected. He was given Prophethood he was given a good name. People remember him after he has gone after 1000s of years, they still remember him positively. They still praise him this to learn from him.

00:19:16--> 00:19:21

What other award was given in dunya? That Allah subhanaw taala made him his friend.

00:19:22--> 00:19:29

And if you look at it, every time we send for that and Salaam on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam whose name is mentioned by him.

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

Isn't that

00:19:32--> 00:19:49

good praise, good name, good reputation, even in this dunya What are they now who fit dounia Hassan we're in no Phil de la mina soil again and he will be in the hereafter among those who are righteous, meaning he will have righteous company in the hereafter.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

We see that Ibrahim or SLM for the good that he did. For the gratitude. Allah rewarded him in this dunya What does this show to us that when a person is grateful

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

Lower reward him even in the studio with more blessings that his children became profits. After him all the profits came from his descendants. All the profits came from his descendants.

00:20:16--> 00:20:25

As we learn insulted, uncovered, is 27 Well, we'll have an Allah Who is harkaway are good. When you're under fee the Riga tinubu waterwell kita.

00:20:26--> 00:20:35

We made in his descendants, the prophethood as well as the Scripture, it was given to his descendants.

00:20:37--> 00:21:01

similar incidents medium is 49 to 50. We learned felon marked as no homo Mayor wouldn't have been doing it there will have been Allah Who is harkaway or who are Kunlun, Jelena BIA all of his children, we made them profits, what will happen at home, Mr. Medina, and We bestowed them with our mercy, what's your alella home listen of silicon earlier, and we made for them a reputation of high honor.

00:21:02--> 00:21:14

And we see that all those people who accept him, not just the Muslims, but even the Jews and the Christians, and at the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the machine even they love him, all of them.

00:21:16--> 00:21:47

So this was a reward that Abraham Lincoln was given in the dunya and in the Hereafter, what will he be given? righteous company, because righteous company is one of the greatest blessings of Allah soprano. greatest blessings, that if a person is in crowds of people in this dunya, but if they're not righteous, that he can be miserable, he will be unhappy. And if he has only one good friend, even just one good friend, that is enough, that is sufficient.

00:21:49--> 00:21:55

We learned the use of our listener, when he was given so much what did he pray for? And how can he

00:21:56--> 00:22:05

join me with the righteous ones. And if he read us enough, he is given this report that Allah will give him the company of the righteous.

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

And we see that he will not be given in the hereafter only, but he was also given the company of the righteous in this dunya how that his own family, his wives, both of them, they were so obedient. They were so cooperative.

00:22:22--> 00:22:34

Just imagine how he left his wife had in the dry and barren and deserted valley of Makkah. Just imagine any other wife, would she take it?

00:22:35--> 00:23:06

Put yourself in that position. If your husband has to leave you with a newborn child, on your own? On your own with hardly any food? with nobody around? What would you say? Is this what the dean teaches? Why do you have to sacrifice so much for the dean? Other people can do it? I am your responsibility. You're supposed to take care of me. This child is your child. He's not just my child, how can you leave us over here? Leave me somewhere else with other people. But look at how cooperative she was.

00:23:07--> 00:23:45

And his son, how obedient and cooperative he was when he came back. And when he told his son about his dream. He said, If I'm not to do what you have been commanded to father, and his son was willing that his father should slaughter him. Just imagine, if you tell your child to do something, will they listen? They don't listen. They don't. But imagine the obedience of this child that he says Go ahead, Father, take this knife and slaughter me. Because Allah has commanded you. This is a big blessing that his children were so obedient.

00:23:46--> 00:23:58

It was a therapy of his Marines, or his mother as well. And we chose that Ibrahim Hassan was given such a righteous wife. She made her child so positive about his father.

00:23:59--> 00:24:45

Many times what happens that if the parents are living separately, and if the Father has been like this towards the mother, the mother is going to raise the child, making him feel extremely angry towards his father, making him feel that his father has been so unfair. But look at how she raised her son. This was a big blessing that was bestowed upon him right. So he was given this righteous company in this dunya and he will also be given in the hereafter. Why? Because he was grateful. He was content. He used whatever Allah gave him. And he sacrificed. He didn't just use the blessings and enjoy them for himself. He had a higher goal in his life. His goal was not just to enjoy the

00:24:45--> 00:24:47

blessings himself. His goal was to save the people's.

00:24:49--> 00:25:00

Unfortunately, for many of us today, our goal has become enjoying the blessings of dystonia. That's not wrong. Allah likes it that we enjoy the blessings and we are grateful for

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

There should be more to our life than that. There should be more to that. How that we must strive to take this religion to other people, just as Ibrahim verticillium strove.

00:25:11--> 00:25:29

Somehow hanaa alayka then we have revealed to you meaning Oh Prophet sallallahu wasallam and it appear that you should follow. What should you follow? Me letter Ibrahim, the creator of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and what was our creed hanifin

00:25:30--> 00:25:35

of being upright, of being dedicated, of being firm on the religion,

00:25:36--> 00:25:54

of not being shaky about their religion but being firm. One i can i mean i'm really keen and he was not optimistic and again, this is repeated to emphasize that the machine are not under originally put on him or the center. And the Jews and Christians also are not on the religion of

00:25:55--> 00:26:00

the those who are Hanif, those who are more hidden, they're on their religion, liberal humanism.

00:26:02--> 00:26:08

We see in this ayah that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is commanded to follow the way of Ibrahim Marisela

00:26:09--> 00:26:34

whereas we see that the rank of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is very high visitor his rank his position is very high compared to other prophets. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam went for his when Miraj when he reached Jerusalem, he was made to lead all of the prophets and prayer. The prophets that a lot of them was made to lead What does that show his exalted status.

00:26:35--> 00:26:47

But still, we see that he is told that you have to follow the way of Ibrahim. Why? Because the way we put on humor listener is the way that almost likes, that is the way that it likes.

00:26:49--> 00:27:10

So you should follow his way. And his way was a word of the heat of gratitude, of inclining toward truth, good character, patience, tolerance, calling people to Allah, spending your life doing everything, so that you can tell people about a loss.

00:27:12--> 00:27:53

And in particular, the profits or losses and the stole over here that you should follow the wave, Ibrahima Santa, in earth leader in a flock, and also in Daraa. These three words if you write, it will make it easier for you. rafidah meaning believes you should have the same beliefs as he did in your o'clock adopt the same of love as he had. What kind of love did he have? gratitude? What else aware Hoon, miniboone, halimun. And all of these traits are extremely necessary if a person wishes to convey the message to other people.

00:27:55--> 00:28:09

Because if a person is not patient, then he cannot commit. If a person is not tolerant, that he cannot bear the criticism of people. If a person is not steadfast, then he cannot bear the difficulties.

00:28:10--> 00:28:12

And also in our in calling people to Allah.

00:28:14--> 00:28:17

How did Ibrahim RN is Salaam called people to Allah?

00:28:18--> 00:28:27

We say that when Ibrahim realism called people to the truth, he did it with a lot of gentleness. He was not harsh towards people. He was extremely gentle.

00:28:29--> 00:28:47

For example, we learned that when he addressed his father, what did you say? Oh, my father? No. What did you say? Yeah, Betty. Oh, my dear father. And then when his father said Go away from here, leave me alone. What did he say? I will seek forgiveness for you. So as the filmmaker of

00:28:48--> 00:28:53

this was what? gentleness, he was never rude.

00:28:54--> 00:29:12

So the profits on a lot of them resulted over here, that yes, the people are very rude to you. The people of NACA, they were opposing the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and they had extremely bad luck, but you keep calling them how, with good o'clock, Justice Ibrahim al Islam day.

00:29:14--> 00:29:45

Similarly, we see that Ibrahima Sam, when he would do Darwin he would call people to Allah. How would he do that? By giving proofs by giving evidences? Like when he was telling the people not to worship idols. He didn't just say, don't worship them, their faults, what did he say? That do they listen to you? Do they hear you? And when he destroyed their idols, he made them realize that your idols cannot even defend themselves? How can they defend you?

00:29:46--> 00:29:53

They do not eat. They do not listen. They do not speak. So how can they help you?

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

So when he was teaching the people, how did he do that? With lunch

00:30:00--> 00:30:28

With some sense, with giving some proofs, with giving some evidences. Similarly, when he spoke to him, Ruth, he gave him evidences. When he said that, Rob, be a lady, you're here where you meet, my Lord gives life. And he also give that when I'm looted, I can also do that, what did you put on? Here it is. And I'm saying, My Lord brings a son from the east, you bring it from the west. So he gave him evidence, he gave him proof.

00:30:29--> 00:30:32

This is the way we should also do that.

00:30:33--> 00:30:36

So the Prophet said, a lot of times being told that follow the

00:30:49--> 00:30:49

money,

00:31:34--> 00:32:03

we see that he was alone. Generally, we see that if people are very harsh in their character, or if they have a negative behavior, there's an explanation that is given, which is that they have faced a lot of difficulties in their life. This is why they're like this, this is why they complain. This is why they pick on such little things. This is why they're so negative. This is what people say, generally, they've gone through a lot when we see that Ibrahim Hassan went through much more.

00:32:04--> 00:32:14

But still, he was grateful. Still, he had good character. Still, he was kind and affectionate, and he felt for people.

00:32:15--> 00:32:23

So we cannot blame other people for our negativity, for our bad behavior. Because you can change yourself, anytime that you want to.

00:32:26--> 00:32:59

Example, one, who Ibrahim alayhi salam, and how he's been told, like by giving the example to prophecy lesson followed this way. So for every human being, this is the way we need to follow, otherwise, you're gonna fall down into the category of Hasina, who will be exactly if we see that the prophets are almost all to follow the way we pro human Islam. The same goes for us as well. So we have to reflect on the good qualities that he had. And we need to see how much of those do we have in ourselves and how much we need to strive to incorporate those within us.

00:33:00--> 00:33:01

They started with whatever work.

00:33:03--> 00:33:34

And then he didn't say, Oh, it was impossible, or you know, it's too big, or it's too small, or I can't do it. He continued doing it. And then because of his sincerity, Allah smart Allah gave him that status in the people's eyes, that, you know, until this day, we remember him. And I was even thinking of the woman who used to clean the mess up, she did such a small act, perhaps she wasn't given like a proper title or anything like all this is your job. But she did it. And she continued with it. And then because of that the process, even preyed on her grave, even after a janessa was over, even after she passed away.

00:33:35--> 00:33:44

So we should never think of this task is too difficult, or this is nothing, no always sees the opportunity that comes before you.

00:33:45--> 00:33:59

I was thinking how in this world, we look for role models and who we should follow. And usually we think of like the wrong kind of role models that we shouldn't be following. Whereas in the ground, you're already told who to follow. So it's just like, get that person and take their qualities and their choices.

00:34:01--> 00:34:14

Try something, search for a bohemian center, go to some website where you can do search in the Quran, and get all the qualities of a human. Because Allah subhanaw taala called him an oma, a nation,

00:34:15--> 00:34:22

a comprehensive leader. Why is he called Omar because he had so many good qualities.

00:34:23--> 00:34:35

And over here is telling us follow the way of Ibrahim. So we need to know what was his way. We need to know what he did, so that we can do those things.

00:34:36--> 00:34:42

So search for the qualities of Ibrahim A listener and see what we can do how we can improve ourselves.

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

It just goes back to how much of a blessing it is to have the foreign, like we have been provided with this information because usually we're lost, like who do we follow? And so panela we're provided with these great role models and it's such a blessing and it's only till

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

actually take advantage of it

00:35:54--> 00:36:05

in the majority of the sub to either Levine after foofy. Another example as mentioned over here, of who those people who were ungrateful,

00:36:06--> 00:36:10

were Ibrahima, they said I was grateful. These people were ungrateful.

00:36:11--> 00:36:17

That intimate juryless servitude. The Sabbath was only appointed on who?

00:36:18--> 00:36:41

upon alladhina, tele foofy upon those people who differed over it, when they were given the command, they didn't say, a slum to me. They raised objections, they differed amongst themselves. And as a result, their life became more difficult. The commands that they were given, were more strict.

00:36:42--> 00:37:17

What was Ibrahima Sam's way. When he was given a command, he obeyed immediately. And that is a part of gratitude. But we see that the bunny is like you What happened to them? We learned that over here loss penalty notices in the majority deception jurina gym in La Jolla to make something. And this part of the eye has been interested in two ways that jewelry has sabotaged that, first of all, it was made obligatory upon who those people who different concerning

00:37:18--> 00:37:26

that observing the Sabbath was made an obligation on those people who deferred concerning.

00:37:28--> 00:37:49

Secondly, during a subdued, meaning during our law that they were made to face its consequences. That the strict rules, the strict commands and prohibitions were enforced upon these people who those are different concerning.

00:37:50--> 00:38:08

So what's the first meaning? It was made obligatory, and secondly, that the strict rules were enforced upon them, that initially the laws of the Sabbath were not that difficult. Just as we are told to worship Allah subhanaw taala, on Fridays, collectively, certain things we have to do.

00:38:10--> 00:38:22

Similarly, the commands that they were given they weren't that difficult with regard to the Sabbath. But because the different concerning it, what happened the rules were made extremely strict, so they were made to face the consequences.

00:38:23--> 00:38:38

And what was the if the laugh that they did this if the laugh was with their Prophet, concerning either the appointment of the Sabbath as to when it should be observed which day? When they were told Friday they said, No, we're going to observe it and Saturday.

00:38:40--> 00:38:48

Secondly, the safety lab was also with regards to its observation the commands that they were given as to how to observe the Sabbath.

00:38:49--> 00:38:59

Were in Arabic Allah who baina whom yarmulke gamma t female Kanu philia telephone and indeed your Lord is going to judge between them on the Day of Judgment concerning what they used to defer.

00:39:01--> 00:39:15

We see that every nation Allah subhanaw taala prescribed one day of the week for the people. Why? To worship Allah subhanaw taala collectively, to dedicate that day exclusively for the worship of Allah soprano.

00:39:17--> 00:39:28

And for Omid Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Allah subhanaw taala prescribed which day, Friday so on this day, people come out of their homes, they go to the masjid, they collectively worship Allah soprano.

00:39:30--> 00:39:59

And we see that Friday was also prescribed for the Bani Israel. musar insulin told them that they also had to worship Allah subhanaw taala when on Friday, but what did they do? They did if they laugh, and they changed that day to Saturday. Because Allah subhanaw taala created the heavens and the earth in six days. So they said on Saturday, he did not create anything. He had completed the creation

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

Friday with the creation of Adam earnest and I'm on Friday. So on Saturday, Allah subhanaw taala did not create anything. This is why we are going to dedicate we're going to select Saturdays for worshipping Allah soprano.

00:40:13--> 00:40:29

Now the messenger told them you're supposed to worship a lot on Friday, they said no, not Friday, Saturday, this was what if they laugh? They were given a command instead of submitting, instead of accepting readily instead of being fun it, what did they do? They did if

00:40:30--> 00:41:16

you understand this was their extra. So what happened? Allah subhanaw taala made the observation of Sabbath extremely difficult upon them. This is why they have such strict rules, such as they're not allowed to do any worldly thing on that day, even going to work, which is why we learned about those people who were forbidden from fishing on Saturday. And it became so difficult for them. Allah subhanaw taala tested them further, which is why they will put their nets on Fridays, and they will take them out on Sundays. And a person may wonder that when you think that they were the believers before the prophet SAW the law and said, I'm gay man now, after the Prophet said of autism, it's the

00:41:16--> 00:41:36

Muslim oma, then why was it also difficult for them? How can the same rules have not been given to us? That just as the rules with regards to food were made difficult upon them because of their own wrongdoing? Similarly, the rules with regards to worshiping Allah subhanaw taala became more difficult for them because of their wrongdoing.

00:41:37--> 00:41:44

So if they laugh, not submitting readily, what does that do? It makes life difficult.

00:41:45--> 00:41:53

So we see that the you who instead of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, on Friday, what did they do? They started worshipping on Saturday.

00:41:54--> 00:41:59

Now how can the Christians they have selected Sunday? Where did this come from?

00:42:01--> 00:42:45

We learned that the bunny is what you they used to observe Saturdays for worshipping the last prime time. And when Risa Hassan came he was also from among the Bani Israel. And the very Israel were required to follow the laws, except we're just some differences that is our insulin hyper. So those people who believe in or restart Islam, they follow the Jewish law, except for this some differences, some variations, which he started as an ime doctor. And they were supposed to continue worshipping on Saturdays. But what happened after some time when they spread everywhere, and when they were spreading the message, the followers of race are the center, they brought many changes to

00:42:45--> 00:42:59

the religion. Why? In order to make it more acceptable to the people, and also in order to show themselves different from the Jews, to show themselves different from the Jews.

00:43:00--> 00:43:11

So what did they do? It is said that at the time of Constantine, they changed Saturday to Sunday for worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. Why in order to be different from the Jews,

00:43:13--> 00:43:15

so this is what you can have as well.

00:43:17--> 00:43:28

Now some say a Saturday is better, others say Sunday's better and others that that no Friday is better. This is if they have what is Allah subhanaw taala say he will pass judgment on the day of judgment as to who was right and who was wrong.

00:43:30--> 00:44:12

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, that we are the last meaning we are the last nation, but we will be the first on the Day of Resurrection, even though they were given the book before us. Even though the nations before us came before us in this dunya This is the day that Allah obligated upon them, but the different concerning meaning Friday, Allah guided us to this day and the people observe their days after us understand that Allah subhanaw taala selected Friday, but what are the people who they change the days? So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Allah has guided us to this day we have accepted it as it is. We are going to observe Fridays and what's going to happen? The other

00:44:12--> 00:44:16

people they're going to follow us on Saturdays and the Christians on Sundays.

00:44:31--> 00:44:32

Know

00:44:43--> 00:44:44

in

00:44:47--> 00:44:50
