Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala ladymum booth Ramadan De La La Nina Nabina Muhammad wa early he was Safi Jemaine Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu.
Indeed reprises due to Allah subhanaw taala. And may the peace and blessings be upon His final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and upon all the messengers who preceded him,
I ask Allah subhanaw taala
asking, by His mercy, that He gives us a bath and gives us steadfastness upon this beautiful deen of Allah subhanaw taala.
I'm sure that you've heard somebody tell you more than once, that the biggest near the biggest blessings that can be or the biggest blessing actually that can be given to any one person is
The fact that that Allah subhanaw taala guided you to Islam, that is the greatest blessing that has ever been given to you or can be ever given to any one person.
Have you actually ever pondered? What does actually mean? Why is it that that is the greatest blessing that anyone can receive?
My take on it is that it is indeed no doubt the greatest blessing
and it is because it is the greatest blessing for you because you are fulfilling the reason that you are placed here.
You're fulfilling what Allah subhanaw taala requires of you
for that reason, it is the best thing that can be ever given to a person because they are fulfilling why they are here.
Now the prophets Allah Hema salatu salam, all of them, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in an authentic hadith, a shot do Naseby Taylor and Al Anbiya. The most severely tested of people are the prophets, some M felafel, Anthony, then those who come along after them, and then after them, in terms of, of levels of piety.
So this IP Tiller to these tests that the prophets that they faced were many, and our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam faced, many trials, many tests, the loss of his family, his wife, his children, his uncle, his people wanting to throw him out of the city, Elisa to sort of mini tests.
But the ultimate test is that he SallAllahu ala he was selling them that he came with the message of a toe heat, the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala.
The message that was given to Adam alayhi salatu salam, all of those generations ago, through to know and through all of the prophets, to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he came to teach this message to give to the people, however, his own people, that they refused him.
Only a small band of companions of the Aloha home that they accepted him on Easter to Salam is a messenger from Allah, the Most the vast majority of people they rejected him.
And as when the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam first received the revelation, he was taken by his wife Khadija to allow her to work, particularly an orphan
unwanted worker, what are the Allahu Anhu? Did he say to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam let me tell you I had
no one came before you be Majid to be, except that when you came with
only that his own people, that they would run him away, and that they would try to punish him.
No one came before you with this message, because he recognized this message that came from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This is the same message that was given to Musa alayhi salatu salam, and this is what you will face and if I am alive, and I fear that I won't be if I had the strength, then I would strive and sacrifice with you.
Adam Ali Salah to set
the story of Adam Alayhis Salam in the Quran? The majority of it when you think about it, what is the module? Where does it take place? Where does it take place it takes place in the Jannah
when he believes
that he tried to deceive and try to cheat Adam alayhi salatu salam. This story took place in the journal.
When a bliss, he managed to deceive and cheat Adam Alayhis Salam and his wife her word. Allah subhanaw taala said to them both were called na minha Jamia, both of you, you go to the US, you will go to the US for in Maya tn mini Houda.
And then that they will be guidance that will come to you from Entebbe, Hoda Falco from LA him, well let him Yassa noon. And then when the guidance comes to you, those people who follow that guidance,
those who follow that revelation that there will be no hope there will be no fear upon them. And that there will be no sadness for those people.
So from the very beginning, Adam Ali salaam, when he's placed on earth, he was told that revelation would come.
And that if he wanted to be a successful one, he wanted to be saved from any grief, save from any sadness, that you'd follow this guidance.
And upon this message that the generation and the next generation and the next generation that they follow that
this was the narrative that was continuing through the generations,
until as Abbas over the Allahu anha. He said the wind 10 generations when they passed, that the people took a number of individuals, five individuals, and they mentioned in sort of the new, they began to take them as places of worship, and they begin worshipping these people.
Now you think about no other he's salatu salam. How long ago was that? Did you know that during the time of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam.
All those years later, generations later, that one of the companions or the other one was sent to a particular place to destroy one of the idols that remained amongst the people all the way back to New
that remained amongst the people.
So after 1010 generations, as in adversity, Allahu Han, as he mentions that no Ali Salam was sent to teach the people to remind them of their purpose, to remind them that Allah subhanaw taala was going to give revelation to certain people and one of those was know how to sell them, to warn to warn them of other one Earlene a very severe punishment. And Allah subhanaw taala mentions it very clearly in the Quran. That indeed We sent no to his people. What he said to them, yeah, call me go to law. Oh my people worship Allah. My Allah, Camila hin Lee, that you do not have any deity other than Him.
You have no other source of worship. Except Allah subhanaw taala
when no hurry salaam pleaded with his people Marilla Camilla Tada drawn a little he worked out. What is the matter with you that you do not fear, the grandeur and the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala. But they rejected this message. They mocked the revelation that was given to new alayhi salatu salam
which was what was this message?
This Nima of Al Al Islam, the NEMA The blessing of submission and to do what you're supposed to do, to worship Allah subhanaw taala. And you know the verse one Mahalo to Linda will insert elderly and go do that Allah subhanaw taala says, I did not create general mankind except to worship me. Do you think that this particular principle was only established and only known to us when it was given to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? No, it's the RE reaffirmation of the same message that was given to Adam la salatu salam and all the prophets who came after him.
So no, on Instagram, his message was very clear.
And then Allah subhanaw taala mentions and if you look at sort of out of who would Saul Schreib shape, loot, and their stores or know how they sell them, and they had the same message? Marla, Camila hero, that you have no other deity, nothing to worship, except Allah subhanaw taala and Allah subhanaw taala mentions this same principle, this same message.
You only have one to worship and that is Allah subhanaw taala.
And then you come to a different
section of Prophethood where there takes a known cycle or known process, where we come in the head of that is Ibrahim alayhis salam, Abdul Amir, the father of the prophets, and why is he the father of the prophets, of all prophets.
Of all the prophets that came after him alayhi salatu salam, they came through his lineage either through his Hawk alayhi salam, or through his smile on his Senate. So he is the father of the prophets. And he is the pivotal figure, a very important figure. And he said to Salam, in all of the three most well known religions in the world, those who associate themselves with monotheism and Islam,
Christianity and Judaism, Ibrahim Ali Salam is a very important figure in all of these religions.
So Allah subhanaw taala mentions Ibrahim in the Quran 63 times in over 25 chapters.
So Ibrahim alayhi salam is mentioned extensively in the Quran.
And Allah subhanaw taala talks about Ibrahim and his story, in some depth, it talks about when he was a youngster, at least Saddam and how he dealt with his with his father and his people, and how he destroyed the idols. And these same stories that you find in Jewish and Christian Christian scripture, very similar.
And then you go on to the next stage of his life, at least Salam, where he then had to, was commanded by Allah's crown to sacrifice his own son
was the Islamic narrative is that quote is the majority's smile, and he Salam was there to be presented to Allah subhanaw taala the Judaic and Christian narrative is that it was in fact, his hope.
But this is, in one way is Allah subhanaw taala His revelation proving that is not based upon ourselves or within that it wasn't just based upon previous stories and scriptures that Islam took from here took from there just to make its own story. Rather, you find that Islam came to reconfirm that was correct. And those misunderstandings or those misinformation was then corrected.
And this is one of those examples where last mount Anatolian is in fact, it was Ismail Ali Salam, who was asked by Allah subhanaw taala, to Abraham to,
to sacrifice for Allah, Allah, Allah Allah.
So the status of Ibrahim is of the utmost importance is pivotal figure, because anything after him or SLM goes back to him. And as we mentioned, mentioned,
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Yusuf Alayhi Salatu. Salam, they mentioned that we will follow the mill of Ibrahim, they will follow the way of Ibrahim alayhis salam, because this fundamental message of Tawheed, the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala, is something that began with Adam alayhis, Salam Idris
knew, and all the prophets that came after this fundamental message that it was there.
So historically, it is important for you to know this because when you're talking to others about
Al Islam and the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam it is like a jigsaw that you're fixing, that the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala, this towhead was something consistent all the way. And that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not something an innovation, bringing about something new.
Rather, he was just a finality, a confirmation of all of those same messages that were preached and practiced, and taught by all the prophets, or the hymns. Salatu Salam bought him a sermon when he prayed. And then he fell down on his face and he said, and he spoke to Allah,
which I do find this and you find this form, Christian scripture. You find this in the book of Genesis that Ibrahim arranged for them that he fell down on his face, and that he prayed to Allah subhanaw taala
I'm sure that you've heard somebody tell you more than once. But the biggest, the biggest blessing that can be the biggest blessing to me that can be given to any one person is
the fact that that Allah subhanaw taala guided you to Islam that is the greatest blessing that has ever been given to you or can be given to any one person.
So even though by and large, concerning Ibrahim Ali said
that those three faiths that they they agree with the status of Ibrahim alayhi salam, and the tests that Ibrahim Ali Salam that he went through, and Allah subhanaw taala mentions him as, as an ummah as like a nation within his own self, because
he alayhi salatu salam, Hari Lola, is a beacon, one of the most important figures throughout the history of Islam, throughout the history of mankind.
Let's history doesn't exist just for the past 50 years, and or even the 100 years, or even, you know, a past couple of 100 years where technology has advanced, there were centuries of history, generations in history have existed before they brought human history is one of the most important figures that exists that did exist throughout the history of mankind.
he is the the father or looked as the father of a tau hate, the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala this fundamental message that was taught by all the prophets Allah Hema Salah to Salam, and Allah subhanaw taala challenges, challenges those people who make statements about Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam,
the Christians from Nigeria and they came to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and they said Ibrahim, that he is a Christian.
Christian being a follower of Christ.
Whereas Ibrahim Ali salaam, he came before Jesus Alehissalaam
or the hood the Jews that he was a Jew.
What does Allah subhanaw taala say? Concerning Ibrahim alayhis, salam, Allah Allah Allah says Mercan Ybarra him or Yahudi young Willa Nasir Rania, that Ibrahim ra Saddam was neither a Jew. Neither was a Christian, while I concur and a honey from Muslim
that he was a beacon of monotheism, a light of monotheism and he was a Muslim. So the question Can comes right back at you now? He was a Muslim. Was he a follower of Muhammad Sallallahu ala he was a
Muslim he I mean, the one who submits to Allah subhanaw taala. Because when you mentioned the word Islam or Muslim, there was the general or the specific understanding.
No doubt, we're talking about in the general sense that he or SLM follow the religion of Islam, in that it is pure submission because that is what Islam is a list Islam to submit to Allah subhanaw taala and then by him being a follower of Islam, submission to Allah, Allah Allah, that he is a Muslim.
And then Allah subhanaw taala he goes on warmer can Amin and mushy Qin and that he Ali Salam was not from the idol worshippers
and then Allah subhanaw taala goes on further will La Jolla, Allahu wa until later and the moon, the authority of the Quran, that it is Allah subhanaw taala is the one who knows and that you do not know.
So the fundamental message that was given by Ibrahim and that you find in the Quran, when Allah subhanaw taala says,
What about him, and Ibrahim is called and he called me when he said to his people who are Buddha Allah, what Taku worship Allah subhanaw taala and for him, the compiler will look him in contempt or the moon that is better for you, if only you knew.
So when he brought him on Easter them when he taught his people, this is the message that was was given to them.
And Allah subhanaw taala further goes on to say about the importance of following it
Call him or SLM. Why am I in Euro hub? Oh and military woman, your military Ibrahim and the one who turns away from the religion or the deen of Ibrahim ill, Sofia NAFSA is only a one who is only fooled himself.
Well according estafa inner who fit dunya indeed we chose him in this life. We're in now who Phil Hirata La Mina, solitary and under the he will be in the hereafter from the righteous from the most righteous, and that you should say concerning Ibrahim Posada Kumar say indeed Allah subhanaw taala. Anis has said the truth for Tabby Romilda Ibrahim Hanifa. And that follow the way follow that Deen of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam
the great status of Ibrahim alayhi salam
because these are people who lived on this earth. The blessings that Ibrahim alayhi salam that he received from Allah subhanaw taala are so great
that every time that you pray, you mentioned Ibrahim alayhi, salam,
his call to tell heed his call to the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala remains amongst all of us. Because when you're in your Salah Allahumma Salli, ala Muhammad was early Muhammad came off so later on early Ibrahim. Ibrahim was early Ibrahim
alayhi salatu salam.
So the importance of Ibrahim Ali Salaam and understanding, even though you may say by and large, the story is very much similar.
There's not enough to say that by and large that they are seen, when we are talking about the prophets, Allah Hema salatu salam, every single aspect of their lives needs to be exactly as it was. And it is this Allah subhanaw taala.
That he informs us of.
So when Ibrahim alayhi salam when he prayed, and then he fell down on his face, and he said, am I and he spoke to Allah,
which I do find this and you find this form, Christian scripture. You find this in the book of Genesis that Ibrahim alayhi salam that he fell down on his face, and that he prayed to Allah subhanaw taala.
And as you know, as well, that ISA and a Sam and his companions mentioned in scriptures other than Islam, Islamic scripture that they prayed, by washing themselves and prostrating down to Allah subhanaw taala
it is a great blessing
that Allah subhanaw taala allows you to follow that same methodology, that same way of praying that you bow down and that you prostrate to Allah subhanaw taala will have the other money and this is the greatest blessing why? Because you are doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing.
And this is why Allah subhanaw taala rebuke it's such a people for turning away because whoever seeks away
other than Allah Islam Woman Yeah battery later Islam Medina, fillet you cobalamin that whoever seeks a way or religion other than Al Islam submission following you, but it will never be accepted from that person will who will fill earth here a typical hostility and that they will be in the hereafter from the true losers.
So when you go off to Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam
And yeah, go on his deathbed is advising his own children. Male taboo and a member ID what is it? Do you go into worship after me? What did they reply? Paul Luna Abu ALA, ala Ibrahim, what is ILA? What is hub illa huwa Haida? One hula hula Muslim
Jacoba de Salam advising as to what you're going to worship after me. We will worship the Lord of your father Ibrahim.
and Ismail A the lord of Israel and the Lord of is hug who is one God. and to Him we will submit.
Musa alayhis salam.
Musa alayhis salam had two great trials had many trials at the trial of facing the greatest tyrant throughout history for
to stand there in front of Iran.
And to say free these people
imagine you have the biggest tyrant on Earth. And you hear how a person who has a speech impediment
that that person makes you out to Allah subhanaw taala rubbish rally soldering while you're suddenly angry. Wow, hello, Melissa Kohli. Oh Allah open mic
Just so I can speak freely, make easy my affair. untie the knot from my tongue so that my speech is heard, that it is understood.
And that from that he mocked Musa alayhis salam.
this trial to free Bani Israel just to free them? No wasn't just to free them to remove a tyrant so that people could worship Allah subhanaw taala correctly. So Musa alayhis salam had the trial of facing frogs
and had the trial of Bani Israel heal themselves. Because Allah subhanaw taala mentioned to us in the Quran, one of the most ungrateful calm one of the most ungrateful nations that ever existed.
However, Musa alayhis salam when speaking to them and when addressing them, when Musa said to his people is that a newbie Allah He was Biru seek aid from Allah subhanaw taala and be patient, telling them to rely on Allah subhanaw taala with Allah Musa Khan with Curonian amatola He alikoum
oh people remember the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala upon you.
When further on that he challenged Musa alayhis salam. And he said to him when I said to him call of a man or a book, or a book, uma Musa. And further on he addressed to hold on and I said that when Musa SLM Who is your Lord? Musa Alexson call or Guna, under the che in Hulka. From
that my Lord is the one who gave everything its creation and its correct guidance. And the message of Isa alayhi salatu salam
when Allah subhanaw taala tells those who take isa Elisa them as a partner,
one of the three, what
do not say three in the highroller better is that you keep quiet.
Rather your Lord is one. So this message that you find all the Prophets the same, it's the same, it's the same, it's the same, the same.
And Allah subhanaw taala says, we'll look at the birth now if equally, muttered Vasu and we sent to every nation a messenger what is the message and Abdullah which delivered
to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone and stay away from false deities. So when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he comes and he's confirms and reaffirms the message that comes before, it just makes sense.
It's the only possible conclusion rationally
according to Revelation that makes sense. That suddenly Allah subhanaw taala changes everything.
That everything that came in the past suddenly is how do we bring these two things together? No.
As Allah subhanaw taala said, shorter Allah committed Dyneema wasabi, he knew
that the religion that was given to know Ali Salam, when the the O Hanaa ILEC. And that what we have given to you O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one was slain OB Ibrahim our moves were ISA
and Allah Subhana Allah mentioned that the same revelation was given to all of these great prophets and Hakim Dean, to establish this Dean, the dean is of the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala whether to follow Roku fi and not to separate amongst yourselves, because in Medina in the law he and Islam the only deen the only way that is acceptable by Allah subhanaw taala is submission in its purest form, not to be mixed with anything.
Allah subhanaw taala revealed earlier on Yom will offer. As a member of Nakata, Radi Allahu under the stated that Allah Allah Allah says Aloma committed to the community. We're at mem tre community. What are the Tula communities lemma? What are the two likoma Islam Medina that today I have perfected your religion and completed my favor upon you and made Islam as your deen.
And the last thing I'm going to mention with you
is the Statement of Use of La salatu salam.
When use of La salami said what about to millet, Ybarra him that I follow? The religion of my father Ibrahim was Ibrahim alayhi salam, the father of Yusuf know
who's back few generations. Millet. Ibrahima is harkaway Aku, the Dean of Ibrahim and is Huck and Yaqoob going back to Ibrahim alayhi salam because that's where it starts.
Makana, Lana and Lucia Kabila. It was never befitting for us. Marshal and the prophets to associate any partners with Allah subhanaw taala Mark Kern, Alana and Lucia Kabila. He means
Sheikh Wehrli coming forward in the arena, what are the Anas that is from the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala to be given to a people that they worship Allah subhanaw taala alone. We're looking for a nursing school.
But most people they will not be thankful and that they will be ungrateful to this net.
So may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to recognize the reality of it to hate.
I mean, may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to follow the way of Ibrahim Murray Sara, and the way of the Prophet Muhammad Salla Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanaw taala bless you all. May Allah subhanaw taala rise us in a gathering you shall know to Allah in the highest places in Jannah that we will one day look back on this and it has served as a benefit for us in the hereafter about a philosophy can masala Manik Mahanta why?
