Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar Al Kabir all while hamdulillah he kathira was to be Han Allah He boo kurata Anwar al sila Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Al Hamdulillah he from Al Hamdulillah. We thank Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for each and every blessing that He has given us and on this holiest day of the entire year, this day of Ramadan odd ha this day that the Koran causal hudgell Akbar, the holiest day of the year, Allah subhana wa tada reminds us that we should be praising Allah, why Wali to caboodle Lucha Allah Maha Docomo so that you may say that that could
be at odds because the law has guided you. Today is the day we thank Allah We thank Allah for all his blessings, and the most important blessing, the greatest blessing, the most blessing of all of his blessings is the blessing of Islam and Hamdulillah, who has guided us to this religion for where it not for his guidance, we would not be guided and as we celebrate, he will not have let us recall the figure around whom he is centered. And that is our father Ibrahim alayhis. Salam, the single most respected human being in terms of quantity in all of the creation Jews, Christians, Muslims, more than half of this world they respect the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam and our Prophet Muhammad
Sallallahu. Either he was setting them is told in the Quran to take Ibrahim as a role model. Now why is Ibrahim so blessing? What makes Ibrahim alayhis salam so great. We will mention two things in this whole book both of them explicit in the Quran, number one, Allah subhana wa tada praised Ibrahim using a phrase that in the entire Quran, it only occurs for Ibrahim, there's one phrase one objective that it only occurs for Ibrahim, what is that? Allah azza wa jal says is the john araba who will be Alvin Saleem Ibrahim came to his Lord with a pure heart. In the whole Quran, the term called Salim is only associated with one human being and that is our father Ibrahim alayhis Salam
cuttlebone Saleem, if you want to rise up in the ranks of Allah, if you want to love to love you, you must have a pure heart. What is a pure heart?
a pure heart is a heart full of love for Allah and love for the creation of Allah. a pure heart is a heart that is full of love for Allah and love for the creation of Allah. a pure heart does not harbor animosity, hatred, jealousy, a pure heart does not look down upon other people. This is what a pure heart is. And Ibrahim alayhis salam perfected it. Another characteristic of the Prophet Ibrahim the second one will mention is the notion of sacrificing for the sake of Allah, you give up what you want to do, because you know that Allah does not want you to do it. This is what sacrifice means. And if you look at the Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam, he sacrificed everything that Allah
wanted him to sacrifice. He gave up his parents because his parents forced him to worship idols. He left his people because they were persecuting him for the Kadima. He gave up everything he left how Jordan is smart in those whom he loved his only child, he left them in Makkah, and he put his trust in Allah azza wa jal, and then when Allah subhana wa tada asked him to sacrifice his only son, he was willing to do that. And Allah subhana wa tada said, No, it was just a test. And so he substituted an actual sacrificial animal. The symbolism of the old here today, the symbolism of the sacrifice is our commitment to Allah that we will sacrifice what is precious our love for you, we
will give up what we want to do, because we know you don't want to do it. This is what the concept of sacrifice means. We will do that which Allah loves, even if we don't want to do it, we're gonna force ourselves to do it. And we will give up that which we love. If we know that Allah does not love it, dear Muslims, the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam was asked a long list of sacrifices me and you could not do them but Allah is asking us very trivial sacrifice in our 24 hours spend 10 minutes praying the five Salawat that's all in the all the income that you earn, give 2.5% of your savings in zecca in the entire year, just the month of Ramadan only during the daylight hours, give up
eating and drinking in your entire lifetime. If you can afford and if you have physical capability, then go for Hajj for the pilgrimage, this is the sacrifice that's it. And if we're able to do this bare minimal sacrifice, then what is the return? What will be the return on investment? What will happen? Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions what exhibits Allah Ibrahim Boubacar imagine for attending my father in Niger Edo Canarsie Mama, when Ibrahim passed all of the tests Allah said, I shall make you a role model for all of mankind. If we want to achieve Allah's pleasure if we want to be blessing in this world and the next if we want every single blessing that Allah azza wa jal gives
the way to do that two things remember, gulp Saleem, a pure heart Don't harbor hatred and animosity Don't look down at other people have a heart full of love full of mercy full of compassion help the Prophet Ibrahim it he said I'm his father wanted to execute him. What did he say? salaam aleikum, South Florida karabi peace be unto you I shall make dua for you. He didn't have any animosity in his heart. This is absurd him and point number two sacrifice what you can for the sake of Allah. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever gives up something for the sake of Allah, Allah will give him much better than what he gave up. Dear Muslims, I cannot conclude the above without
reminding myself in all of you that here we are asking to sacrifice very trivial things. But there are Muslims, our own brothers and sisters across the globe. There are being forced to sacrifice much more than what me and you are being asked to sacrifice. There are people that are being persecuted for the galima there are people that are being forced to not be Muslim to not pray. There are people that have fled for their lives because of civil war because of strife. the very least that we can do dear Muslims, when Allah has blessed us with safety and security when Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us all of this the very least that we can do is to show gratitude to Allah subhana wa tada by
doing what Allah subhana wa tada has commanded us to do. Dear Muslims know that Allah Subhana huzzah Allah has asked of you very little. And when you do that, in return, you shall get this world and the next Allahumma inni dine for Aminu Allah we ask that you do not leave any sin of ours today, except that you have overlooked them and any sick amongst us today except that you have cured them and any diseased except that you have forgiven them and any debt Oh Allah etc. As you allow us to repay them and I will law Do not leave for us any anxiety or stress or grief except that you have healed it and cured. Oh Allah we ask you to live from us this plague and this disease and Allah
bless us with a life of comfort and ease. You are the way you are And the disease of Allah of this dunya we ask you the best and on the Day of Judgment we asked that we pass the test and in the AF era we wish to be amongst the blessed Oh Allah bless Islam and its people and Allah the alma mater
It's safe and peaceful Allah The oma make it safe and peaceful. Oh Allah The oma make it safe and peaceful and protected from all those who strive for against it for evil. You are not a human and Rahim you are Mola Europe we have no molar other than you servants of Allah know that Allah subhana wa tada has commanded you with a command that he began with himself and then he followed it up with the angels themselves. And then he asked us to follow it all ourselves for he says in the Quran in Allah Ramallah eco Sol Luna Nabi Yalla Dena amanu sallu alayhi wa sallam with us Lima Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barakato adequate Ahsoka Muhammad Ali he was a big marine rebels a lot of pop but
