One to Muslim on my Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam. There was only one time in the life of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that an eclipse took place. And this eclipse that took place when our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was around 61 years old, and it coincided with one of the most tragic events in the life of our

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

Prophet sallallahu Allah He was seldom because we learned that at the age of around 60 Our Prophet system was blessed to become a father for one more time and realize that at this age at the age of 60, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had already lost almost everybody who was near and dear to him, his mother, his father, his grandfather, his uncle Abu Talib, his wife, Khadija who was his confidant and the one who really supported him, his two sons and his three daughters one after the other, he only had one beloved left and that is Fatima. There was no other immediate family member and none of the wives of the process and I'm blessed him with a child other than Khadija, then when

00:01:42--> 00:02:25

he reached the age of 60. Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed him to have another son another child, and this was through Maria Clea and Maria Alka Thea gave birth to Ibrahim, our Prophet system, as it was reported in Sahiba. Hottie that the Sahaba said one day the processing came and his face was shining bright, his face was beaming, and he said, Allah bless me with a child last night, and I shall name him after my father, Ibrahim, and they would see Ibrahim with the Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he will take him to the masjid and they saw the happiness in his face that they had not seen because our Prophet system had not played with a child for for his own child for many decades before

00:02:25--> 00:03:01

this. All of the other children as I said, already passed away. He had buried his own daughters Rocha year and omit costume and asked for in Makkah, he had at least one maybe two sons, we're not sure whether there were two sons or one son, for sure. Awesome. And maybe another was there as well. And three daughters all of them have passed away. Now he has Ibrahim and lo and behold, Allah Subhana Allah Allah had willed that Ibrahim is not going to live. And of course, this was the color of Allah from before Mercabarna Mohamed and other I had him originally come, what are your rasool Allah he will hurt him and there been this ayah had come down in Isaiah up three years ago, it had

00:03:01--> 00:03:42

only come down, Allah has said, You are not going to be the father of any man. So no boy could live to be a man or else this idea would be proven wrong. So Allah will that the process can be tested one more time he enjoy the fatherhood Ibrahim live for a year and a half. And all of us who are parents, we know that this is the sweetest age this is the most tender age where the child is crawling and walking and climbing on you. And the child has the utmost love and joy. This is the pinnacle of the love that the parent has for the child. It reaches that that tenderness at the age of a year and a half. And then at that age, Ibrahim fell sick. And again, it's April How do we learn

00:03:43--> 00:04:24

our process of them, brought Ibrahim to the masjid and he was wheezing and coughing. And you could tell that the child was on the throne the throes of death that he was wheezing and coughing. And can you imagine the pain and the Sahaba they saw the process and cry as he's holding his son Ibrahim in his hands and Ibrahim is wheezing his last and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knows that he's about to pass away and he says in either fear raka Ibrahim Allah has Dunoon verily, Ibrahim at your death, we are very Gree we're very sad that you're about to die. And when Ibrahim died, Ibrahim passed away, then our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the law he were in the IDI Raj

00:04:24--> 00:05:00

your own in Allah Hema Allah would allow him that to Allah belongs everything he has the right to take, he has the right to to give and we will not say anything except what pleases Allah subhana what to Allah and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in utter grief. Can you imagine at the age of 61 now and now his last child other than Fatima has been has been taken away. Allah tested him so many times. And the Prophet system rarely cried in public. You can count the number of times on one hand that he cried in public you can count on the number of times on one hand he cried in

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Public of them when he is visiting his mother's grave. And this is now at the death of Ibrahim. And this is perhaps the only time in public he is crying in front of all of the Sahaba that they are there in the masjid and the whole Sahaba are overwhelmed with grief because they love the prophets of some so much. His grief is their grief, his pain is their pain, his suffering is their suffering, and as he is grieving, and the Sahaba are grieving, lo and behold, Allah willed that at that time, the only time in the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, the sun, Eclipse, not even the moon, the sun, it was a full solar eclipse, a full solar eclipse, there is nothing more magnificent,

00:05:43--> 00:06:25

more spectacular than the covering of the Sun in the middle of the day. And right when the Sahaba are crying, and the process is crying, the sun itself has become shaded. And of course, the rumors spread How could they not spread? When all of Medina is crying? Then why shouldn't the rumors spread that even the skies are sad? At the death of Ibrahim, even the son is crying, even the celestial objects are showing their husband their grief at the death of the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the world and all that is in it is sad with the sadness of the process of why shouldn't they believe this? It's common sense to believe. But our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:06:25--> 00:07:11

sallam on the day his son died, cannot but teach to hate. He cannot but preach Islam. We don't believe in superstitions. We are not a people that believe in bizarre rituals and mythologies. No. We are people who believe in Allah subhana wa Tada and the power of Allah subhanho wa taala. So on the day he buries his son. He's barely come back from the graveyard and he calls all of the people to the masjid a crier is sent a Salah to Jamia a Salah to Jamia come this is what you say when you want people to come to the masjid and you don't give a Dan Dan is only given for the five Salawat for other than the five Salawat when they have to come you say a Salah to Jamia so a Salah to German

00:07:11--> 00:07:54

everybody comes and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then led them in a long salah, a long prayer and as Aisha and others said it was as if he recited all of other Al Baqarah that the size of Surah Al Baqarah and he did not finish until the Eclipse itself disappeared and as I said this is indeed the Sunnah, but it is difficult for us in this land and when we have worked tomorrow to follow that sunnah. And of course, by the way, the salah and the hood is sunnah it is not YG it is good to attend and to sunnah and it is not something that is wajib. So he prayed as long as the Eclipse was in session. Then when the Eclipse finished, then he stood up and he gave a whole tuba

00:07:55--> 00:08:46

and in that whatever he said that beautiful phrase in a sham so well camera, turned him in it light. Lion Cassie finally demoted I hadn't hayati, the sun and the moon are of the miracles of Allah. They are the creation of Allah. There Eclipse is independent of the death and the life of anybody on this earth. And I have said before and I will say it again, this one incident will Allah He is one of the most powerful incidents that our Prophet Sall Allahu Allah he was sending was a true prophet or saw the call Amin or saw the call Amin had he stopped for Allah or anybody been a false prophet had any person in his shoes, who was a false prophet. This happens to him. What a amazing story. What an

00:08:46--> 00:09:33

amazing mythology to extract to concoct, let the people speak. It's not even as if he was spreading the rumor. It's not even as if he was saying look, even the skies are crying because I am sad. No, he had to speak the truth or saw the local Amin or saw the local mistook he has to say the truth. So he calls the people and he says the Eclipse has nothing to do with the life and death of anybody in this world. These are of the creation of Allah subhana wa Tada. So when the sun or the moon eclipses, then Salou what Kabiru was a deco Sadako that Tasa daco that pray and say Takbeer and give charity until this the Eclipse goes away, and our Prophet sallallahu Sallam during that Salah during

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

that salah. It was a very emotional time, because realize brothers and sisters that before we had the advent of modern science, nobody knew when an eclipse was coming and to see the Eclipse people did not understand what is going on. And they felt this is the impending doom they felt something evil is about to happen. They felt the punishment of Allah they felt it might be the day of judgment coming close. And this fear that struck all of humanity. There is nothing wrong with this fear.

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

Because this fear connects you with Allah subhanho wa taala. And you become cognizant of your own mortality of your own sins of your own, of your own, if you like miniscule existence in front of the majesty and grandeur of Allah's creation, so even the Sahaba they were indeed terrified. And there's nothing wrong with that terror because it is linked with Allah and the punishment of Allah and our prophets of some said, when you have this fear when you have this terror than stand up in Salah, say vicar, make dua give charity, these things, they are the things that cleanse your sins away. They are the ones that calm down, they are the ones that remove the anger of Allah subhanahu wa to Allah.

00:10:39--> 00:11:22

And in that salah, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he took a step back, and he took a step forward. And he explained later on that while I was praying, Allah showed me Heaven and Hell, he showed me Jana and jahannam. So when I saw Jana, I took a step forward, wanting to pluck the grapes from Jana, and if I had plucked those grapes, then one bunch of grapes would have fed you all until the day of judgment. If I wanted to, I could bring it here and then you would have had food until the Day of Judgment, one bunch would have fed all of you until your multi AMA and then before he could do that other Allah Allah willed of course that these grave should not be here. That's for the

00:11:22--> 00:12:06

next slide. Then before he could do that Jahannam was presented and our process and went back because he could feel or you could see the Jahannam so he took a step back, and in that holds Bob he said to the Sahaba lo Tyler Munna ma LM, if you know what I know. Level hijk tomb Kalyan, whatever que tiene que sera, you would laugh very little, and you would weep very much. And when he said this, The Sahaba they began weeping the entire masjid so much so that the masjid was overcome with sobs, so much so that the Sahaba to cover their mouths and their faces in their cloaks and their garments out of the sobbing because they could see there was a very emotional day that day, the

00:12:06--> 00:12:44

processing has lost his son. Now he leads them in a saga to three hours. Can you imagine his camera how they must have been moved? He himself is seeing Jana and Jana, then he gives a powerful chutzpah so that day was imprinted in the memory of the sahaba. And this is the only time the Eclipse happened from this our scholars have derived that there's something called salatu and cusu, Fen salatu Hosszu with a calf and a Ha, so that will cusu is for when the sun eclipses Salah to hustle when the moon eclipses and they are prayed in the same manner, except of course the crucifers in the daytime. And kazoo is at night and my dear brothers and sisters. Unfortunately, one of the problems

00:12:44--> 00:13:28

of modern science and this is a problem is that modern science unfortunately has caused many of us to lose the all that we should have when it comes to the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala the fact of the matter is that even if we know there's going to be an eclipse and even if we have 100,000 pictures, and even if we can see it on YouTube and our on our iPhones, and we know exactly when it will begin an end. This does not take away from the majesty from the beauty from the splendor from the absolute amazement of this creation of Allah subhana wa Tada. Brothers and sisters, the sun and the moon are of the most miraculous creations of Allah. What was shum Sunil

00:13:28--> 00:14:14

Kumar? Rubeus ban Allah says the sun and the moon have been placed in order woman is to hit Leila now how do I show them so I'll cover of his miracles is the night and the day and the sun and the moon Wallah he brothers and sisters to think about it. It is mind boggling. These massive objects this ball of fire and gas and and helium hurtling through space and 10s of 1000s of kilometres an hour 10s of 1000s. And it is going on its own axis and around it are going so many planets and around the planets are going so many moons. And yet their coordination is so precise that we do not time the eclipses we do not time the sun and the moon. Time comes from the movement of the sun and

00:14:14--> 00:14:58

the moon. Think about it. Our Time comes from the precision of the movements of the sun and the moon. Where do we get the 24 hours? Where do we get the day? Where do we get the night? Where do we get our seconds? Our time is based upon the precision of these massive objects hurtling through space, and that's what Allah says was shum Sewell comma Rubio's ban the sun and the moon they are in a precise orbit Quinlan p file again, you're spot on the shamsur Yamba. Elon, typical comma what a lady who Saba corner how the sun is not going to overtake the moon, nor will the day come before the night. Each one is in its own orbit, who has the power to control these magnificent huge creations

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

who has the power

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

have to coordinate these structures such that we know exactly the timing of them and we extract our day and our month and our year from the precision of their movements will Allah He that is indeed a hard Aleem al Qadir, and a coolie che and Kadir these creations around us. They should bring us in all, how impugn his how how insignificant we are, how puny we are in comparison to the creation, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says that, look around you, look around you so moody him i attina fill our factory what? To him, we will show them the miracles all around them and inside of themselves. These are the miracles around us brothers and sisters. And the fact that we understand it should not

00:15:44--> 00:16:27

diminish should not eliminate the all and the respect that we should have for the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala brothers and sisters, this is a time of introspection of thinking about the purpose of creation. I conclude with the simple IRA that Allah azza wa jal reminds us in Surah Al Imran that the purpose of all of these beautiful signs around us Alladhina Jatropha Karuna if you halacha sama what you will Earth we look and we contemplate about the creation of the heavens and earth Robina Maha Doctor heard about Elan Subhana Falconer either been no your Lord Our Lord, you haven't created all of this for no reason. What is the purpose of this majestic creation? What is

00:16:27--> 00:17:09

the purpose of everything around us? All of it is true that we know that Allah is true, his signs are true. The Quran is true, his speech is true Day of Judgment is true Heaven and Hell is true. And therefore Animoto will hire as well is true. Brothers and sisters it is it as it is a time to think about the purpose of life, to think about how insignificant we are in the grand scale of things to think about the fact these creations have been here for millennia, and they shall continue to be for millennia. We are the ones our short lifespan barely had to said the next time this type of eclipse will occur will be in around 30 years. Who amongst us will be here last time it occurred in the

00:17:09--> 00:17:48

early 80s. Then it will occur again and 30 years goes on. We are the ones fleeting lifespan. Let us take advantage we can make our lives eternal in the eyes of Allah if we take advantage of them. Brothers and Sisters in Islam, the Ummah is going through much difficulty and trial as we know, let us make sure that we are thankful for what we have, that we're generous to those who don't have, let us make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allahumma inni Dynafit aminu O Allah as you have gathered us here today in this messenger of yours Oh ALLAH gather us together on the day of judgment under your shade. Oh Allah shelters under shade when there is no shade other than your shade. Oh Allah bless us

00:17:48--> 00:18:28

Oh Allah magnify our good deeds. Oh Allah absolve and eliminate our sins of Allah causes to be of those whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam intercedes for Oh ALLAH causes to enter agenda without any accounting big idea is up.
