hi

00:02:25--> 00:02:25

How are you

00:03:04--> 00:03:06

all

00:03:18--> 00:04:08

hamdulillah All praise is due to Allah To Him belongs all power, glory and majesty he is worshipped to the heavens on earth and in the land and upon the sea. He made the heavens and adornment and synchronize the sun and moon in perfect harmony, and he decorated the earth with mountains and fields and oceans and greenery. He created man in the best of forms, endowing him with sight, hearing and rationality. And before them, he created the jinn from a smokeless, substance unseen and fiery. He sent down his speech as a guidance and reminder and cure and to grant a certainty. And he revealed to us a sacred law that we cherish and hold on to firmly. He promised those who follow His

00:04:08--> 00:04:55

guidance that they shall flourish and be eternally happy. But he also threatened those who are arrogant and reject they shall face punishment for eternity. So we praise Allah, the Lord of the Throne, the duel July the world economy, and we send Sadat and salah upon our Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the monkey and the Hashimi as to what follows Allah azza wa jal reminds us to be conscious of him when he says in the Quran Yeah, you hola Dina Armando Tapachula halka to otter, wala temotu illa. One two Muslim moon, do your brothers and sisters. Hardly any prophet in the Quran has been praised the way that the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam is praised. In fact the

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam he is made a role model even

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

For our own prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our own prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told in the Quran that you have a noble and exemplary conduct to follow. And the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam, and a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, Yeah, how are you, buddy? Yeah, oh best of all of mankind, and he is the best of all of mankind. But out of humility out of modesty, he said, No, that was my father Ibrahim, and the two of them are the best of mankind. The both of them are the Heleen of Allah azza wa jal, only two people in the history of mankind have been chosen to be Holly, and Holly means the close friend Huddy means the confidant,

00:05:47--> 00:06:34

and only two people have been chosen and conferred the title Khalil, the Prophet Ibrahim, and our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we are all familiar with the stories of the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam. But today, I wanted to concentrate on one particular story. And that is the famous story of him confronting his people, destroying the idols, challenging idolatry of him taking on the culture and customs of his own people and facing threat and punishment. And I want to choose this story, because it's all occurred when Ibrahim alayhis salam was a mere teenager, when he was not yet a prophet, the story of him challenging his people of destroying the idols of facing the

00:06:34--> 00:07:21

persecution of being thrown into the fire. All of this occurred, and our scholars say he was maybe 1415 years old, some even say 13 years old, and he was not yet a prophet. He had not yet become a prophet, he was going to become a prophet. This is laying the foundations. But this story is a beautiful story for us to show us what to Real Men, even as a teenager is worthy to be accomplishing. And so in today's brief chutzpah, I'm going to derive five lessons, five characteristics that I want all of us and especially our younger brothers and sisters, to memorize from this beautiful story of Ibrahim, first and foremost, first and foremost, Ibrahim alayhis salam

00:07:21--> 00:08:10

demonstrated an inquisitiveness and curiosity and an intelligence that sets him apart from the people of his time and place. Even as a child, he is wondering, why am I here? Who created me? What is the purpose of life, even as a young teenager, he is rejecting the false religion of his people. And he is recognizing that idolatry is false. This stone this rock is not my Creator, I'm not gonna bow my head down to superstition to myth to culture, no, and Ibrahim alayhis salam, as a young teenager, his intelligence and the purity of his soul, it leads him to conclude there must be one God and that God is worthy of worship. At this stage, no revelation had come Gibreel hadn't inspired

00:08:10--> 00:08:54

him with any Quran or any way I should say, Ibrahim alayhis salam with his own intelligence in mind that ALLAH blessed him with rejected the culture of his people. And this shows us the Muslim child, the Muslim teenager is an intelligent teenager. The Muslim teenager is an intelligent, inquisitive, curious teenager, he doesn't just go with the flow. He doesn't just go with everything that his people are doing know, he rises up above the challenges of his time. And he thinks critically, and he engages with his people. And he uses the brains and intelligence that Allah has given him just because his his people were doing something didn't make it right. Just because everybody around him

00:08:54--> 00:09:37

was saying worship, the gods worshipped the idols. Ibrahim knew this can't be right. And his purity of soul and his intelligence led him to conclude there must be only one Creator, all perfect, all powerful above this idolatry. He cannot be depicted in shape or form. And yet he is still his presence is clear and all the signs that we see around us. So Ibrahim alayhis salam, he wants the Beatles as a young child. He is all alone in the temple book. And Allah says for all Isla Alia to him for calling to Allah Kowloon Mala Kula tomtec own he is challenging these gods as a 13 year old and he's going to the polls, polls, and he's poking the gods. Are you a god? Are you worthy of

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

worship? Why aren't you saying anything? And then he realizes these aren't the gods and so he destroys all of them, as we know, except to that one. So the point is the first lesson that we learned, the Muslim child is an intelligent child. The Muslim teenager thinks critically and does not just go with the flow. Just because your culture is doing something doesn't make it right

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

The second point that we learn is that Ibrahim alayhi salam, he had the courage to stand up and reject the falsehood of his nation. He spoke out against the evils of idolatry, despite the fact that he was all alone, not only in his community, but frankly in the entire world. I mean, you need to understand, there was no Muslim on earth at the time, there was no prophet prophetic message that was being spread. Ibrahim alayhis salam was the first in a long line of prophets, the prophets before him, their messages had gone. There was no living message. There was no living Amma. So Ibrahim alayhis salam had the courage to stand up and reject the falsehood of his nation, despite

00:10:46--> 00:11:27

the fact that he did not have any support in this world. He wanted to show his people the truth of that being one God. And so he himself broke the idols knowing full well that everybody would blame him knowing that he's left his fingerprints, literally and metaphorically. He's been questioning for weeks. His people know that he's challenging the gods. He made an excuse to not go to their festival. He was the only person he has no alibi. He was the only person in the city when they're outside celebrating, everybody knows it's him. And so when they come back, and they're angry, how lumen father had their be early had you know, who has done this to our gods, the people say, Oh, you

00:11:27--> 00:12:11

sent me an affair. 10. There's some teenager going around here doesn't the Quran, there is some teenager going around here talking about these gods, they say his name is Ibrahim. And so they call him and this is where we see the courage. Can you imagine a 13 year old and the entire town is shouting and yelling at him, the King, the nobleman, his own father, every single uncle, an adult in the community, and he has no support or comfort at this stage. He is not even a prophet at this stage. Gibreel has not communicated with him. But he knows that these gods are false gods he knows it. So he stands up with the courage and conviction that can only come in a strong Iman and Allah

00:12:11--> 00:12:56

subhanho wa taala. And he says, How could I have done it? Here's the one still standing the largest of them the axes around his neck. Ask him surely if he's a God, He can speak to you. Surely if he's worthy of worship, he's going to respond back? How can you worship an entity that is deaf, dumb and blind? How can you worship an entity that you carve yourselves? Look at the wit, look at the intelligence, look at the bravery, look at the courage. And so dear Muslims, what I want to remind you from the second point, what mind you from the second point is that next time you feel isolated. Next time you think that you have peer pressure around you. Next time you think, Oh, I don't have

00:12:56--> 00:13:39

the bravery and courage. Think of Ibrahim alayhis salam, think of Ibrahim alayhis salam, when your friends come and entice you to do something when the people around you, you're worried they're gonna make fun of you. Remember, there were teenagers before you who also faced a lot more persecution than me and you would ever face. And they stood up to that challenge. And they rejected that peer pressure. So the second thing that we learned from Ibrahim alayhis salam is courage, and is to stand on the truth, even if you're all alone. The third lesson we learned from Brahim Alayhis Salam is that his Eman was so strong, that he was willing to face the consequences and to sacrifice

00:13:39--> 00:14:21

everything for the sake of his principles for the sake of the truth for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. Remember, he was not yet a prophet. And when his people came to him, and they said to him, If you don't stop this, if you don't admit you're guilty, if you don't apologize, we're going to kill you literally kill you. And they said, If we give you one chance, say you did it, say you're sorry, and come back to worshipping or false gods. This stage Ibrahim has two choices. Either I revert to the idolatry of my nation, and I go back and humiliate myself for front of a false god, or I stand firm upon my principles and face whatever might come. He did not know there would be a

00:14:21--> 00:14:58

miracle coming. He did not know God would come in at that stage. He did not know this. Yet he stood firm upon his principles, and you know what brothers and sisters, anybody who firmly believes in something, there's got to be some sacrifice. You know, there are people out there. They're strict vegans, right? They think they're not they're not allowed to eat meat. That's their version. That's their ethics, and they sacrifice food and they sacrifice maybe even lunch. If that's the only option, they will go hungry rather than sacrifice their principles. I asked you by Allah, my younger brothers and sisters, should we not be more capable of sacrificing for the sake of our Lord? Should

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

we not be willing to sacrifice

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

Like Ibrahim sacrificed face the consequences come what may, when there's a principle of our religion that is being violated and we are being asked to do the Haram, we should stand up as much as is reasonable. I'm not asking for miracles, Allah azza wa jal blesses whoever he chooses. And if we are forced, we ask Allah's forgiveness. But don't just cave in at the very getgo don't just cave in when the going gets tough. Try to resist, show that bravery and courage and sacrifice. And realize brothers and sisters, that when we stand up for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. And when we sacrifice for the cause of Allah, Allah azza wa jal will bless us. And this leads me to my

00:15:41--> 00:16:26

fourth point, we talked about courage, we now move on to to work cool in Allah trust in Allah. Because Ibrahim alayhi salam made dua to Allah to protect him. He wasn't a prophet at this stage. But he knew that there is a Creator that can here that is all powerful. He knew that there is Allah azza wa jal, he didn't know all of the details of the Sharia. But he had full certainty that my Lord loves me and cares about me in Nehemiah, Robbie, my Lord is with me. He had that certainty that Allah azza wa jal will hear him. And so he makes dua to Allah for protection. And he says, as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us what he said, has to be a law who are near a man who

00:16:26--> 00:16:26

will kill

00:16:28--> 00:17:11

the whole armies of Nimrod or surrounding him. They've dug a pit, they had him tied to a post for three days, he was tied to that post, the pit is being dug, more and more fuel is being thrown in. And it is being made hotter and hotter and hotter. Why? Because they don't really want to kill the child, they want to threaten him. So for three days, he's tied to the post. And he sees this fire becoming more and more fiery burning hearts, and they keep on telling him, reject, reject, reject, go back to the Dollar Tree. And Ibrahim Ali his salaams keeps on saying has to be Allahu Allah kill ALLAH is sufficient for me and he'll take care of me, Allah is sufficient. I don't need the armies

00:17:11--> 00:17:50

of this number route. I don't need anybody if I have Allah, Allah will take care of everything. And he didn't know what would happen. But when he put his trust in Allah, and they finally had no option but to go through with the threat because what are you going to do? He's not recounting, they're gonna have to show the people that you don't get away with, with making fun of our gods. And so they eventually threw him in. And it was at that stage according to our scholars, that he became the Prophet when he put his trust in Allah. And when he was thrown into the fire, that is one Gibreel came down and Gibreel said called nya now Rue Cooney. Barudan, wa salam and Allah Ibrahim Gibreel

00:17:50--> 00:18:33

said to the fire by the permission of Allah, that all fire become a source of coolness and a comfort for Ibrahim. So the very fire he was thrown into became a garden. Can you imagine it became a beautiful garden, he's strolling through the garden, there is no fire there because Allah can do anything he wants. And he walks out of the garden slash fire and the whole town, the king, everybody is shocked because they realize they witnessed a miracle and they have no power over him. We learned from this my fourth point, dear brothers and sisters, is that put your trust in Allah. Make dua to Allah, constantly worship Allah have a connection with Allah, there is no age limit, you don't need

00:18:33--> 00:19:13

to be 18 years old to start your DUA. You don't need to be 21 to begin your license to worship Allah. On the contrary, we worship Allah as soon as we're able to do so yes, it becomes obligatory at the age of puberty, no doubt about that. But even before as a young child, we can worship Allah as Ibrahim did, and that worship will bring about fruits and benefits. And when we turn to Allah with sincerity, with Tawakkol, with a class, when we put our trust in Allah, then indeed, miracles can occur. Now, I'm not saying a miracle will necessarily occur every single time. Sometimes you're in a tough situation, your turn to Allah, and what you ask for doesn't happen. But you know what,

00:19:13--> 00:19:27

and I will guarantee you this because it is the guarantee of our religion, you might not see a miracle, you might not get what you actually asked for. But if you turn to Allah and are sincere,

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

then whatever happens will be for your benefit in the long run. Even if you don't see it in the short term. Whatever happens it will be for your benefit. And you will come out a victor in the long run. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but you will see that whatever happened to me back then it turned out for the best and I am who I am because I turn to Allah and Allah subhana wa Tada guided me to be where I am today. And who knows sometimes, yes, miracles still happen. Yes, we certainly believe this. And Allah has

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

Joe continues to do miracles that we see. And remember, there are many miracles that we do not see. And there are many miracles we take for granted life itself is a miracle. So the point being the fourth point here, you are never too young to worship Allah. You're never too young to make dua to Allah. You're never too young to put your trust in Allah subhanho wa taala. And whoever turns to Allah and puts his trust in Allah and is sincere for the sake of Allah shall always come out a winner no matter what happens to him in this world. The final point for our hutzpah and one of the main beautiful lessons from the incident of Ibrahim alayhis salam is that Ibrahim alayhis salam was

00:20:43--> 00:21:27

surrounded by hostility and anger, vengeance and threats. Talk about hate, that's what you call hate. Yes, I know that we are now in a situation of Islamophobia. People say things about our religion, a lot of things happening in the world that really hurts us and Wallahi that's, that's difficult. But let's be real here. Nobody's threatening to throw us into a fire that's been blazing for three days. We're not tied to a stake and a post seeing the fire in front of us for three days. Our own fathers and mothers are not threatening to kill us if we worship false gods like Ibrahim's father, you do know this right? Abraham's father said to him, the LM 10 Tehila are Germanic. If you

00:21:27--> 00:22:15

don't stop in this newfangled religion of yours, I personally am going to stone you to death. You're talking about hate that's what hate is over there. You want to see Islamophobia. Islamophobia in the time of Ibrahim alayhis salam he yet still, how did Ibrahim respond? did he respond to hatred with hatred? did he respond to vulgarity with vulgarity, to meanness with meanness? On the contrary, we see in Ibrahim alayhis salam a role model of love and compassion and beautiful o'clock look at how he speaks to His Father. Yeah, but yeah, but yeah, but the My dear father, don't worship this. My dear father, don't do this. My dear father don't obey che on Yeah, but he he keeps on saying this.

00:22:15--> 00:22:26

And when his father said, I'm going to kill you, what is Ibrahim say? Order salam alayka stowford will occur Robbie. May Allah is Peace be upon you, I will continue asking Allah to forgive you.

00:22:27--> 00:23:08

In response to being threatened to be killed, Ibrahim smiles and says I'll still make dua to Allah for you. SubhanAllah. This is where we learn prophetic manners. The way we're going to win the hearts and minds of the people is not through anger, foul language being mean and nasty. That's not the way we're going to win. No, we're going to win through our good manners through our clock. And it's going to be a long term win, because in the short term, people are going to laugh and move on. But in the long term, they're going to remember a wow, we made fun of that kid, but he maintained his dignity. We said such nasty things to him. But you know what he showed us what it means to be a

00:23:08--> 00:23:46

believer in God. That's what you call godliness. You have to think of the long term and do not respond to hatred with hatred. Do not respond to meanness and nastiness with vulgarity and pettiness, Noah, always respond to the best of your ability, with good luck with positive manners with perfect adab and manners. And we learned this from the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and especially when it comes to our own elders from within our own community. Sometimes an uncle might say something nasty to you. Sometimes even your father or mother is too strict with you. Okay, maybe sometimes they're wrong, and you have the right to be irritated, and you have the right to feel

00:23:46--> 00:24:25

angry. But you do not have the right to be vulgar and nasty. Control your anger and speak with wisdom and gentleness, you have the right to negotiate with your parents. But always remember the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam, if Ibrahim couldn't even say off to his father and his father wants to kill him. If he Ibrahim did not say any vulgarity or bad word or shout or yell and his father's thrown him out, literally thrown him out of the house. Literally. He's kicked him out and said get out of here and you had to wander the earth as you know, this is a bright mind as a teenager, a 13 year old kid, 14 year old he's kicked out because he's worshipping Allah. And what does he say as he

00:24:25--> 00:24:59

turns around, he leaves his father salaam when Alec selfie Lulu Karabi whatever your mother and father my mother and father are doing. They're not threatening to kill you because you're worshipping Allah. Learn from Ibrahim alayhis salam, even if they're wrong about something, treat them with gentleness in the tongue and negotiate with others and manners, and that will work much better than being mean or nasty. So these are five lessons that we learned from the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam, as a young teenager first and foremost, being intelligent and critically thinking for the sake of Allah, the Muslim child is no fool

00:25:00--> 00:25:37

The Muslim child is not stupid. The Muslim child is intelligent and thinking, secondly, being courageous for your faith, standing up for what you believe and thirdly, sacrificing for the sake of your principles. Yes, you have to sacrifice that was that's what principles mean. Fourthly, trusting and worshiping Allah making dua to Allah having a connection with Allah. And lastly, consistently maintaining politeness and good manners. These are some of the many lessons we can learn from the story of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, may Allah azza wa jal bless me and you with and through the Quran, and May He make us of those who is vs. They understand and applies halal and haram throughout our

00:25:37--> 00:25:42

lifespan. As Carlos forgiveness us we'll ask him for his love of food and the ramen.

00:25:54--> 00:26:13

hamdulillah All praise is due to Allah, the One and the unique. It is He alone that we worship, and it is His blessings that we seek. He is the Lord of the oppressed, and he answers the call of the week. Dear Brothers and Sisters, dear younger brothers and sisters, I speak to the youth in the audience.

00:26:14--> 00:26:18

Every one of us, we reminisce and we wish we were your age.

00:26:20--> 00:27:04

Everyone in their 30s 40s 50s 60s 70s 80s. They think back when they were teenagers, they think back and they say oh how I wish I could be given the chance again, how I wish I could go back and live those years again. Now I know you at your stage are not very happy at these years. And you have a long list of complaints, many of which are valid. And yet Mark my words, my younger brothers and sisters, a time will come when you too will remind us and when you too will wish How I wish I could go back to my young days. Do you know why? Because never in your life will you have the amount of energy that you do right now, the zeal that you do right now the passion that you do right now the

00:27:04--> 00:27:44

commitment, the ideals, this is the time to plan, this is the time to dream about the future, this is the time to grasp at the biggest opportunities given to you, then life sets in and older and older. And as you grow older, you become more feeble and weak and things happen. So this is the age and the opportunity that if you take advantage of it, then there's no stopping your limits. If you take advantage of your youth, of your energy and your zeal, at this stage of your life, have the powers of your memory of your physical strength that Allah has given you, then there is no limits to how far you can go. And Allah will bless you in those endeavors. But if you waste these years, in

00:27:44--> 00:28:25

doing that, which is of no benefit in this world or the next, then there's no returning back to these years, you only have one opportunity b to be a teenager. So only one timeframe. That's it. And once it's gone, it's gone. So the wise person and Ibrahim was wise and you to inshallah are going to be wise, the wise person appreciates, I have this great opportunity, I don't have to work my parents take care of my needs, there's food and drink in the in the fridge, I don't have to do any of that I have time I have energy, I have the best brain I'll ever have in terms of memory. So I'm going to study and I'm going to memorize and I'm going to be religious, I'm going to understand, and I'm not

00:28:25--> 00:29:04

going to waste my time, whoever does this, then the doors will be opened and they shall go far in life. But if these years are not spent in that which is useful, then there is never any substitution, you cannot come back and be 15 all over again or 17 all over again. And that's why this timeframe is such a beautiful timeframe. And it also has the potential to be a negative influence as well. You know, the people of the home side they're the one who killed the she camel, right? Allah says there were a bunch of teenagers, what kind of in Medina and then there was nine gangsters gang members. And they're the ones who they were doing evil all the time, and they decided

00:29:04--> 00:29:41

to kill the she camel, and then what happened happened. So if people waste this timeframe, they have the opportunity to go astray, watch your friends, be careful, don't hang around people that are misguiding you calling you to sin because the people of Saudi those nine gangster members, that's what happened to them. And instead of following them follow the people of the cave as hobble calf and so little calf. Allah says in the Quran, that in the home fits here to an AMA noburo be him. They were a group of young men who were pious and believed in Allah. So be around good company and because of that good company, they saved one another, they save one another by the permission of

00:29:41--> 00:30:00

Allah subhanho wa taala. Choose your company with wisdom and choose your friends with intelligence. Be like the people of the cave. And don't be like the young men of the people of Saudi. And also Dear brothers and sisters. Never forget that hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is meant for every one of you, young men and women my younger

00:30:00--> 00:30:47

widows and sisters How I wish I too could go back and relive my days in light of this hadith. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, seven are the fortunate people seven he counted them that will be sheltered under the shelter of Allah on the Day of Judgment when there is no shelter other than Allah shelter. And one of those seven, he said was Shah Boon Nisha theory birds Atilla a young boy or girl sharp, you're at the prime of your youth from 15 to 25, as a sharp, young boy or girl, a young boy or girl who conditioned himself to be a worshipper of Allah during that phase of his life. You have the opportunity at this stage that I don't have an almost all of us have gone, that stage

00:30:47--> 00:31:30

is gone of our lives, you have the opportunity to be of the elite of the select of the nobility on the Day of Judgment, by making sure that it's this stage of your life. You maintain your Salah, Your Worship, you avoid the major sins, you display an interest in the religion of Allah, you're eager to learn about the religion of Allah. If you worship Allah properly in this stage, then the rest of your life is much easier, much easier. But if you are misguided now and you lay the foundations and misguidance now, well then the future only Allah knows. So here's an opportunity to your young brothers and sisters to seize seize the moment. That's what they say Right? Carpe diem, seize the

00:31:30--> 00:32:12

moment sees it for good sees it for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada and plant your seeds for the future. Dear young brothers and sisters, I speak to you as your older brother in Islam. Allah here we're very proud of you, Allah who were very proud of you. You have done an immense amount of work, immense amount of sacrifices, we cannot imagine the world you live in. I speak as somebody born and raised in America, but I grew up in the 70s and 80s I don't know how you maintain the strength and courage you do in the face of all of these new gadgets and iPhones and internet and all of this yet still, you're maintaining your Salah, you're coming to the masjid, you're doing good in your

00:32:12--> 00:32:51

schools. Inshallah, yes, we could all do better, nobody's perfect. But overall, I want to give you the message that we are very, very proud of all that you have done. And we put our trust in Allah and then in you, that you will rise up to the challenge because you know what, my dear brothers and sisters, you are the future of Islam. You right here, you're going to take the banner from me and others of my age and generation you will have to because we have no other alternative you are our future and the future of this ummah, we are investing everything in you, because we have no other investment to make.

And we put our trust in Allah and then in you and we have full confidence that insha Allah Who to Allah, you're going to rise up to the challenges of your generation, you're going to take the banner of la ilaha illa Allah and the flag of this religion, you're going to hold on to it with firmness, and you're going to maintain it for many, many, many generations to come.

And now whether you're five years old, whether you're 15 years old, you're gonna have to step up to the plate right now and you're gonna have to show us but more importantly show ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada that you're worthy of carrying that banner and taking that flag of la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, we know you can do it, we're going to keep on nudging you That's our job. We're going to be a little bit of a nuisance and irritants in the background. That's what we're supposed to do.
