Whether you meet Tony somebody or Heaney, whether the admiral and you're fairly healthy at yoga,
so it is as though he is telling the people that Allah is my Lord, in this dunya. And also in the hereafter.
He is the one who takes care of me in this world. And he is the one whom I will go back to in the hereafter.
This is the Dharma of Ibrahim is a very comprehensive, very personal, very touching, very, you can say, almost emotional as what that how he talks to the people about his life. And when you talk to somebody like this with your heart, it's not possible that the people will not feel it, that people will not understand that they will understand. It's up to them whether they accept or not, but at least they will understand.
And then he makes the right to Allah, but I'll be heavily hookman He says, Oh, my Lord, grant me How can one How can you asylee hain and join me with the righteous, he prays to a law for her What is her coming judgment, as well as wisdom.
So it can refer to authority. And it can also refer to wisdom, understanding knowledge.
And according to some scholars, hokum is command fill in while I'm in that perfection in knowledge as well as
that when a person has a very good grasp of knowledge of what to do, he has full understanding of it. And then he does not just have understanding of it, but he also applies it.
So he asks for hokum and he asks for what is happening, the sila Hey, join me with the righteous ones. And amongst the righteous ones, who is at the top, the prophets of Allah.
What do we see over here the devil here in Amsterdam, he sees that he is surrounded by the blessings of Allah
that Allah is the one who has created me, he guides me he gives me to eat it gives me to drink he takes care of me, he gives me cure,
but what is his desire? What does he want? He wants forgiveness and he wants Heroku and he wants the company of the righteous. This is the wish of who those people whose focus is the
those people who know that this dunya is temporary.
We said use of RSM as well when Allah subhanaw taala gave him everything What was it
that love because at a 20 min and mulki vallentine mean that we will have a fair bit of similarity we'll up until we leave it after the war for any Muslim man. Or and
similarly, we see that the profits are allowed to send him at the time of his death. What did we pray for Aloma Philadelphia? Arla.
So the righteous ones, their focus is what the
now we see the liberal here. So first of all, he has this realization that I have everything that I need.
But then there is something that he wants as well.
He has everything that he needs, but there's something that he wants as well. Look at the desires that Abraham has, many times. If you think about it, what do our draws revolve around? Good health, family, children, money, success and dystonia. I'm not saying it's wrong to ask for those things. Of course a person should ask for them. But we see that Ibrahim in his time he knows that whatever I need a lot will give it to me anyway.
Whatever I need in this dunya Allah will give it to me but what I want success in the ACA I have to ask for that. This is why he prays to a loss of personal data for success in the
world your unleash and make for me Listen, gain a reputation of honor Phil, Corinne among the later generations would your I lead the sadness lidocaine, what does this mean? dunk and figuratively. It's also used for speech for language. And listeners speaking What does it mean literally? Truth and it's also used for honor.
That which is good, that which is honorable, as we have learned earlier that the believers anila one other Macedo came in behind that the video is what will they have? a seat of honor with their door? So what's your ID? Listen acetylcholine fill athlete. What does it mean by this? This has been understood in a number of ways that first of all, grant me a reputation of honor. Listen, meaning reputation when people talk about me, how should they talk about me in honorable terms
when people talk about me
When people remember me, what kind of reputation should I have? honorable that people praise me that people talk good things about me. And listen, a second thing is also understood as the sand meaning praise and sense meaning real and truthful, that when people do talk about me, when people do praise me, in honorable terms, make me worthy of that praise. What they're saying is not false. It is actually true.
that make me so righteous, that after I'm gone, when people do remember me, when people do praise me, they're not wrong, I actually deserved that praise.
What you're really saying is,
this is a very, very deep draw.
That made me so truthful that there is no contradiction between the inner and the outer state. Make me so truthful, make me so good, that if people do make a good mention of me, they're mentioned is based on the truth. For example, if you praise someone, you say something good about another person. That's so enjoy, so good. So until I saw righteous, they're so sincere. Many times we praise people like that, right, based on how they deal with us. But who really knows about their reality? Allah subhanaw taala.
Now, it's possible that you're talking about someone in a very positive way you're praising them. But in reality, they're not like that. So your praise for that person? Is that true? No, what is it then? It's a lie. It's not that you will be held accountable. You're saying based on your analysis, right? Your experience, you're dealing with them. But that praise is what? It's false. It's a lie. Because that person does not actually deserve that praise.
He's not really good. But you're calling him good.
So if I hear his name, what does he ask for? That when people praise me, make me such that I deserved that praise. Make me someone who is genuinely good. People praise me for who I really am.
Not that they have a wrong impression about me. They're praising me extensively, and I don't actually deserve that grace. Because who is it that loves to be praised for what they don't actually do?
Then we're not going to hypocrites when you're a Buddha and your model, be malami fit into the earlier one, I went at it, we learned that the hypocrites they love to be praised for what they do not even do.
They love the praise of people. And this is the state of the majority of the people. They don't do anything, but they want to be praised and acknowledged all the time.
But when the righteous servants of Allah when they are praised, they become concerned
that what if I'm not really like this, these people are praising me, they're saying good things about me. But what if my status in the sight of Allah is very, very low? What if they have a wrong image about me? What if they have a wrong impression about me?
So the righteous servants of Allah when other people praise them, they don't become happy.
They become concerned they become worried
that Allah knows who I truly am. And I know my weaknesses. I know my shortcomings. I know my faults. And other people have no idea about them. And they're praising me on the outward, a low arland whether I really deserved that praise even or not.
So ebrahimian is fun. Look at how sincere how truthful how concerned he is that even when I'm gone, if people praise me, make me worthy of that praise. Don't let it be false praise. Don't let it be a lie. rather make it truthful. And Allah subhanaw taala accepted this the wrong

what the lockner, la fille de Salamone Allah Ibrahim gallican edges in mercy Nene that we left for him favorable mentioned among later generations, that the generations that came afterwards How do they remember him? In favorable terms, b c upon Ibrahim, indeed, We thus reward the doers of good
and insolence medium is 96 we learned that in the Medina Amanullah mill asylee Hardy, sajer Allahumma Myrna wood
that those people who believe in do righteous deeds than the Most Merciful will appoint for them affection, Allah will create love in the hearts of people for them who those who believe in do righteous deeds. So what do we see over here? That one is that a person strives to just gain fame and glory in the eyes of people. And when he does that people might praise Him.
People might not praise Him. People may acknowledge his efforts and people may not even acknowledge his efforts.
And on the other hand, when a person strives to please Allah subhanaw, taala and Latina, Amma noir middle sila hat, then what happens?
Allah will make that person successful how that Allah will create love in the hearts of people for him.
As it happened with Ibrahim is
that when a person makes himself sincere for Allah, then Allah will grant his work acceptance, and Allah will grant him glory and fame and success in this dunya and also prestigious levels in the hereafter.
And Ibrahim are an Islamic surah that would your unley and make me mean what is it Jonathan nary among the inheritors of the Gardens of Pleasure. Make me of those people who will be the heirs of the Guardians of pleasure. What are the what are the is the plural of where it's who is virus, err.
So make me of the heirs of Jonathan or Eve Jenna that is filled with luxury filled with blessings.
In this dunya blessed me with an honorable mention, and in the hereafter make me of the residents of the paradise of delight.
Well, fiddly Abbey, and he goes on to make Dora that forgive my father. Why? Because in no Can I mean a bond lien indeed is of those who are a string.
Ibrahim al Islam is praying for his father. If this Torah was made while his father was alive, then what does it mean by wofully Abbey? Forgive him, meaning grant him guidance.
And if it was after his death, then it was because Ibrahim Reddy Sam had promised his father that he was going to make the offering.
So he prayed for him. He fulfilled his promise that welfare Lee Avi in the academy, not lonely. If you look at it, how did the father of Ibrahim innocent treat it?
How did he treat him very harshly with extremely harsh words, what did he say to him?
That if you do not stop, I'm going to kill you.
Go away from here. Let me Lampton the healer of germanica wa junie Mallya, he was so harsh to him. He threatened him so severely.
And then when the people kindle the fire, his father actively participated in lighting that fire. He brought the firewood. This is how he treated his son. But look at the way we bohemianism What is his way? What is his behavior towards his father, that he's making the offering? What happens if our parents do something really wrong with us, and we feel very, very hurt.
Maybe we feel that the way they've treated us is very unfair.
Maybe they've been very biased. Maybe they've always given preference to your siblings instead of you. Maybe they sent your siblings to a very good school and you they didn't send you to a good school.
Maybe your siblings, your parents have been giving them a lot of gifts and you they don't give you gifts. They praise them. They don't praise you. They're always telling you you're not good enough. So what if you have these feelings? What have you have really been treated like that by your parents? How would you feel?
How would you feel? Think about it?
Our parents don't even treat us unjustly. And we still have such harsh feelings against them,
They don't even treat us with injustice. They care for us. They're so concerned for us, but still we feel that their enemies. We don't like them. But look at Ibrahim and s&m despite the fact that his father was so harsh towards him.
The fact that he was his father was enough that Ibrahim s&m was making draw for him.
Because we're bill Wiley, Dany Sena and what is it's an extra good more than what the other person deserves. Firstly, we can ever pay our parents back. And if our parents have been very unfair to us, if we feel that we have been treated very unjustly, very unfairly than still What have we been told to do?
towards our parents, and we see this in Ibrahim Raisa how he's making the offer his father, despite the fact that his father was so harsh with him,
why was Ibrahim it sound like that?
Because he had well wishing for people. He wanted good for people. There are like a bell here and of soccer. Alaia kulu meaning and unless and until a diary has that feeling for people. He cannot do good. He cannot spread the highest.
Because the first thing that he needs to do is forgive people. Forgive them for the injustices that have been committed. And when you forgive them, only then you can wish for them.
Only then you can want good for them, overlook their mistakes overlook their in justices overlook their harsh comments and think about it, you want high for them. And when you want high end for them, it will make you forget about everything that they've said and done to you. This is what it means by forgiving people.
This is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam at the conquest of Makkah, he was able to say that today, I will not hold you all accountable, he was able to forgive people. He said exactly what you said when his son said to his brothers,
what makes a person so forgiving, it's when he wants good for others,
when he wants higher for others, Indonesia and Africa. This is what personal holdup is. This is what good character is what good manners are. And we see that when a person is like that. Then Allah subhanaw taala rewards him even in this dunya that Ibrahim or less than his father was so harsh towards him, but still Ibrahim Edison and remained a dutiful son, and obedient son. And look at the reward that liberal humanism was given in the form of his very, very obedient son is married,
how obedient he was there when he said, I've been commanded to slaughter you. He said, go ahead and slaughter me.
Without any question, without any hesitation, without showing any anger, nothing. This is a reward for who? For the one who is good to others, because hell does that leave me alone. No, it's only Ursa.
And then he prayed to Allah, whether zini and do not humiliate me Yama yuvaraj. Soon on the day that they will be resurrected. Which day is that?
The day of judgment that on the Day of Judgment, do not humiliate me. How can a person be humiliated in the year after
we learned earlier that Rob Burnett in Naka mentally narrow focus
into the earlier one, that all our Lord whoever you admit into the Hellfire, then in fact, you have humiliated him? That person has been humiliated, so that any young person, don't humiliate me on that day. And in particular, what it means by this is that do not punish my father on the Day of Judgment, because that will be a means of humiliation for me. But we learned from our Hadees that Ibrahima in his center, he will meet his father as of on the Day of Resurrection. And there will be dust and darkness on the face of as of
Abraham and he said, I will say to him, Did I not tell you not to disobey me?
So his father will say to him today, I will not disobey Abraham and Abraham would say, oh, Lord, You promised me that you would not disgrace me on the day when they resurrected because Ibrahim Ernest and I made this draw and the draws of the prophets of Allah, they are to be accepted. So he will say that what this grace can be greater than seeing my father in this state.
So Allah subhanaw taala will say to him, I have forbidden paradise to the disbelievers. And then it will be said to him or Ibrahim look beneath your feet.
So he will look and there he will see a male hyena covered in filth, which will be caught by the legs and thrown into the hellfire.
So his father will not be thrown in the form in the face that Ibrahima listened and recognized him.
So that it's not a means of embarrassment for Ibrahim realism.
But what do we learn from this? That no matter how great a person's rank is, he does not have the authority against the loss of
Allah does not go against his word he does not go against his promises. And Ibrahima is sometimes there are yes he was accepted, but his drive in the favor of his father, it was not accepted.
So he prayed, while I took Xeni, Yama, bassoon and do not disgrace me on the day that the people are resurrected.
So how will Allah fulfill this to offer him that when his father will be thrown into the Hellfire you will not be thrown in the form that it will humorous and unrecognized him?
Yo medallion Pharaoh on the day that it will not benefit what will not benefit Milan, any world whatever noona nor any children
the Day of Judgment. If a person is humiliated on that day, that's it he's doomed he's finished. Because that is the day when a person's children and a person's Well, they cannot assist him they cannot benefit him at all.
The only thing that can benefit a person on that day is what
his urban setting his safe and sound heart, his deeds, his EMA and his belief. But in this dunya unfortunately, what are the people running after? day in and day out from the beginning to the end? What are they running after wealth
First of all, people strive to make money. When they make money, then they strive to get married. When they get married, then they strive to have a house for who for their children, and then the education of the children. And then the marriage of their children and so on and so forth, are lifelong. What are people chasing wealth and children. But what do we see from here? that despite the fact that these are our greatest worries, on the day of judgment, these two will not help a person.
These two will not help any person at all. Because we learned earlier intellectual capital manual banana, Zenith or high adonia only wealth and children, they are the Xena the adornment of this worldly life only. They're not the adornment of the hereafter.
They're only a means of glory and fame were in the studio. Because once a person dies, his wealth does not accompany him.
No matter how wealthy is no matter how rich he is, nothing of his wealth is going with him to his grave. And even if it does go as some people do take their wealth with them. does it benefit him in any way? It is not. Can he take his children with him? No, he cannot.
Yama lion Pharaoh motto whatever No. Then what is it that will help people on that day?
Except man at a la Hobbes Calvin Salim The one who comes to Allah with a sound heart. What does it mean by this is
that first of all, the only thing that will help a person on that day is convincingly The one who brings to Allah Alban Saleem, a sound heart, that sound heart will help a person nothing else will help him.
And secondly, design has also been understood as that ala except meaning the wealth and children will only help that person who comes to a love with convincing
because a person who comes to a lower carbon Saleem, how will he have spent his welcome children as other kajaria. So they will be a means of reward and success for him in the hereafter.
A lemon at Allah will convince Sally. Now what does it mean by Calvin Saleem said he was on the roof letters, sila me and Sally was that which is safe and sound that is healthy, that is unblemished, that is free from any imbalance that is safe from any disease that is safe from any defect.
So what is selling them?
healthy, unblemished fault free, unimpaired such a heart. What kind of art is that?
Think about what kind of art is that that is free from any defects, what could be the defects of the heart? What could be the illnesses of the heart? Check hypocrisy, Ruby marohn. This is what hypocrisy.
So a heart that is free of the air that is free of hypocrisy that is free of ship that is free of Shibu had doubts of shahabad desires. Such a heart is safe and sound unblemished, the possessor of this heart will be successful on that day.
Secondly, the word sunny
is also used for a person who has been bitten by a snake.
Just imagine a person who has been bitten by a snake what would be his date?
Have you ever been bitten by like an insect or something in your hand is one an upper, maybe a wasp or a B? Or maybe a mosquito? How are you then
extremely alert. You're in a state of pain which is why constantly you are moving you cannot stay still. You are not at peace.
So Calvin Saleem is a heart that is full of yearning, a heart that is extremely concerned. A heart that is constantly desiring forgiveness that is constantly moving and quivering and shaking from the fear of Allah.
And when a person is in this day, then he does not stay put. He gets energy. He's full of energy. He's trying one thing after the other.
So, Alvin Sallim, the heart of a person who is constantly concerned, constantly he is trying to help himself, yearning for forgiveness, yearning for safety and security in the hereafter. Such a person who had an alive heart, that person will be successful in the hereafter.
So what do we say in these two
That on the Day of Judgment, wealth and children will not benefit a person and only Calvin Salim is going to benefit a person. In other words, a lot will not look at the apparent state of a person, what will he look at his inner state?
along will not look at how many children a person brought with him, how much wealth he brought with him. Rather Allah will look at the inner state of the person, what is the state of his heart, on that day, the heart will be tested, the heart will be examined.
Normal normally in this dunya what happens? We think that the more we have, the safer we are.
The more successful children we have, the safer We are the more money we have, the safer we are. But what do we see on the day of judgment? Well, and children will not bring security, what will bring security, inner peace, the inner state of a person, the inner your theme, the reliance This is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that Allah does not look at your appearance, or your possessions. What does he look at? He looks at your heart and your actions.
We see that Musa alayhis salam, he was chosen, why? Because of his inner being, because of his inner drive, because of his heart he was chosen, despite the fact that physically he did not have much.
He did not have wealth. He did not have many supporters. What did he have? The inner drive, this is why he was successful. This is why he was chosen in the hereafter as well. People will not be successful based on how much money and how many children they brought, but based on the state of their hearts.
We learned in the Quran yoma tubular saw, the day of judgment is the day when the secrets will be put on trial. The hearts will be examined. hearts are going to be examined. What is in the heart.
What does the heart feel? What does the heart want? What is the heart desire? That's going to be
an urban Saleem is not a headless heart. What kind of a heart is it? constantly trembling, bitten by a snake, a heart that is constantly apprehensive, constantly worried, not about this dunya not about making more money and having children. But rather the heart of this person is constantly worried and concerned about what about the hereafter?
If you look at it, typically what are our worries? What is that keeps us apprehensive. I don't have children.
I don't have boys. I don't have these many children. This is what people are concerned about. I'm still not married, I don't have this much money, I would still own a house, I still don't have a car, I still don't have this much jewelry. I still don't possess this and this. My bank account is still over here. This is what mainly people are concerned and apprehensive about in this dunya. But we see that this kind of fear and concern does not help a person the year after which concern will help a person when he's concerned about the hereafter
when he's apprehensive about the
because when a person is apprehensive about the algorithm, automatically, what's going to happen? Is Armand is going to change the rest of the body is going to follow.
This is why it's automatic. And what do we learn lateral eco unwelcome what are the commands that lead mature wealth and your children distract you from the drama. Because if you're constantly occupied with them, then it will distract you from what from the aka.
And when your heart is concerned about the author and then what's going to happen, your actions will change automatically.
Because whatever the heart goes through the body, it follows the first organ that begins to function properly, is what the heart it begins to pump very early in the womb of the mother very early.
And we see that until a person dies, the heart is constantly pumping.
And the entire body is connected with what at the heart
that is the Oregon which supplies blood to the rest of the body. And if the blood is not supplied over there, then that part of the body is not going to function anymore properly.
So what do we see that the heart has a deep connection with the rest of the body, the state of your heart has a deep connection with your actions.
If the state of the heart is correct, then the rest of the actions will also be correct. And if the heart is heedless, then a person will also be heedless, in his actions.
Even serene, he said that the sound heart knows that Allah is true. The elven Salim
What is it, the heart that knows that Allah is true
that the hour will undoubtedly come. And that Allah will resurrect those who are in the graves. This is Kelvin Sally,
the one who recognizes the reality of a loss of parameter,
the one that realizes the reality of the hereafter.
The one who realizes that I'm not here eternally, I'm going to go to my grave, and then I'm going to be resurrected from there.
And when a person lives in this reality, then his heart is constantly concerned and restless, constantly urging him pushing him to do more, never sit back and relax. Never take it easy, never take it lightly. This is the heart that constantly drives a person.
And if the heart is relaxing, then the rest of the body will also relax
in lemon at Allaha be convinced only such a person will be successful. Now what is it that makes the heart ill?
Because we learn over here that the Calvin Selim only will benefit a person on the Day of Judgment.
So what is it that makes a heart opposite of saline?
It's when the heart is diseased, when the heart is ill when the heart is defective.
So what is the root cause of that? It's two things. She will hurt and Chihuahua.
What does that mean? That's
when a person is doubtful, about what about the hereafter about the power of Allah, about the help of Allah?
About the questioning on the Day of Judgment.
So these doubts, they make a person ill they make his heart defective and not just doubt but also shahadat, what is that desires, that when the heart is constantly full of desires, wish they will feel
that when the heart is yearning for other things, well, children love this love of that horrible shaha worth
remembering sort of earlier on we read a list of her Mashallah. So when a person's heart is full of these desires, then it makes him heedless of the hereafter it makes his heart defective.
So what's the solution? Then?
The solution for doubts is what? What's the cure for that? In the knowledge, learning the
reflecting on the Quran?
And what's the cure for our desires, remembering the hereafter?
in total Islam 82 we learn when nezumi any Maha Shiva
we reveal in the Quran that which is Shiva, that which is a cure.
So, the cure for these desires and these doubts is what the Quran what will make your heart Saleem.
We listen to the recitation of

The father of
evil but still if he really said I made the offer him
if you think about it our parents they have been so generous, so good. How much do we make for them? Think about it. It's about recognizing the sign of the person
acknowledging the favor of others that yes, no matter what they've done, they have been good to me. After all, they're my parents and making the offer them because of that gratitude because of that feeling.
