It's a unique honor and pleasure to be able to celebrate this Yo Ma

00:01:23--> 00:01:57

Eid, in congregation amongst us amongst all of us who are living in the West. So we are able to celebrate you with happiness with joy, with sincerity. We don't have to worry about what we're going to be able to eat after this or somebody's going to give us for Barney, you know, are we going to have bombs dropped overhead this afternoon, you know, things broke out in the Philistine just yesterday for Muslims trying to get together. So we have to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for the blessings that we do have, because blessings that you do not thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for become curses upon you and that the FTM or or Allah subhanho wa Taala can quickly take them away

00:01:57--> 00:02:41

from you. In this day of evil that we remember, we remember the story of Ibrahim atta he said him and his son is nine and he said him in the amazing sacrifice that not that they had to make but that they were willing to make we know the story and how it ended when Allah subhanho wa Taala saved him from having to sacrifice his son and replaced it with the RAM which we celebrate that today when you go into Puerto Burnie when you go and do the slaughtering, but there are three principles I wanted to small principles that are major implication that I wanted to pull out from the story of Abraham and a sedan and the story of his son is made and the first of those is that sacrifice and obedience

00:02:41--> 00:03:19

and submission. When it comes to the obedience of Allah subhanahu wata Allah. This was first and foremost throughout the life of Ibrahim alayhi salam and his son is nine. This is something that they were known for. This is something that anyone who has been praised by Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran, anyone that Allah Jalla wa favors are people of obedience, people whom when Allah subhanho wa Taala have told them to do something, people who want Allah subhanho wa Taala has told them through their messenger to do something they will as the Companions were, as Allah subhanho wa Taala describes them saying that I know what I don't know now, this was the entirety of their D if

00:03:19--> 00:04:01

you wanted to ask me what was the either of the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu what was their overwhelming defining characteristic of their religion? It was similar I know what the ANA whatever Allah said for them to do they did it. They did it. It was not it was not for them to decide whether or not to do it or not. That's us. That's us we are that generation whether we tried to find a way to decide whether or not this is actually an order. Is this a command is this Rajan? Is this Mr. Hab? Is it fun, we try to find escape routes, which are more prevalent for Tom, Rod, the Allahu, and when describing esta karma, told us not to do he said it's the karma is to stay on the straight path

00:04:01--> 00:04:40

without wavering to the right or to the left, you stay on the path of Allah without falling to the sides. And you do not try to seek routes of escape from the orders of Allah subhanho wa taala. And so they did not try to seek an an out. But for them, the only decision was how do we go about fulfilling this covenant? Allah has commanded us how do we fulfill that order. And this was the name of Allah upon them, but he raised up from amongst them, the messenger Muhammad Alayhi Salatu was Salam who showed them through his life example, which will become the Sunnah that we follow today of how to fill the orders of Allah for them. There was never a question of whether or not we're going

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

to do it. Just how do we do it in a way that is pleasing to Allah? Subhanahu wata, Anna. This is obedience. Obedience is to follow the orders of someone obedience is to see yourself as under the command of another without question without disregard. This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala asked from EBITA he

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

When he revealed to him in a dream to sacrifice his son, it was not about whether or not he was going to do it. It was about how am I going to feel this order. So the first thing he did, he went and told his son, he went and told his son smile, that I've had a dream that I had to slaughter you. Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this to me. What do you say? His response was similar to his father the exact same summit, I know what a time father if you have been ordered to do this, then do it in sha Allah, who to Allah, you will find me submissive, you will find me submissive. Which brings me to the next point, submission. submission is the characteristic of the many, it is the

00:05:37--> 00:06:18

characteristic of the believers that not only do we want to obey Allah subhanho wa taala. And all of his orders, stay away from that which He has asked them stay away from go towards that which he's asked them to go towards. But they submit to it, meaning that even if it might not make necessarily 100% sense to them right now. And that happens to a lot of us as Muslims in in our current age, especially our youth Subhanallah I've been learning this over the past 10 years, is that sometimes they don't want to blatantly disobey Allah subhana who want to enter, but they have trouble understanding, they have trouble realizing what Allah subhanho wa Taala is wanting from them through

00:06:18--> 00:06:57

these orders. They've grown up in this paradigm of the West, they have grown up in this system which designs their brain to think a certain way, it designed your mind to see things under certain values. And then Allah subhana wa that has given you an order that seems to completely go against every single bit of that every single bit of the base nature that is pushing you towards this paradigm of the West. So they have trouble actualizing the orders of Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, this is what I teach our youth This is what submission means. Submission means I don't necessarily need to understand it. I don't necessarily have to have all of the information. I don't necessarily

00:06:57--> 00:07:37

have to have gone to 10 to you and to given me the same answer. No, once I realized this is clearly from Allah Subhana Allah with the ANA, Allah has commanded me Rockne masala, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam has ordered me to pray five times a day at certain days and showing us those times of things that I submit to it, even if it doesn't make sense to me now. Because through that submission, when the heart submits as Allah tells us instead of the Muslim men, then remember the Name of your Lord and submit to Him with a complete submission, submit to Him with a full submission. And He commands us all you who believe, enter into a slum facility without leaving

00:07:37--> 00:08:16

anything out, and do not follow the footsteps of Chapin because the footsteps of shape on was the shutdown did not disbelieve in Allah shatta knows who Allah is shutdown did not go out and complete rebellion against Allah subhana with Anna, but what he did not understand he could not submit to and his arrogance took over what did not make sense to him was how Adam and a sudden could be so much better than him when he was created from fire. His logic did not rationalize this concept. And so he rejected it. submission is that even if your logic is telling you one thing, even if your paradigm that you've grown up in is screaming another concept, if you know that this is the order of Allah

00:08:16--> 00:09:00

Subhana Allah to Allah and His messenger, you just submit to it. And through that submission, Allah softens the heart, Allah opens the heart to gain the understanding that even if I will never understand this, it is best for me because Allah subhanho wa Taala knows what's best for me. You could never explain to anyone I've had people asked me, Why do you guys pray five times a day? not three, not two, not one what? Why does it have to be five? There is no answer for this. We pray five times a day because our Lord has ordered us to pray five times a day. And he knows what's best for us. Because He created us. He created us therefore he understands the system better than us. Just

00:09:00--> 00:09:39

like someone who creates a brand new computer, a brand new system that no one has ever seen. And they give you an operating system for it. They've given you that operating system because they created the computer they know best the software that will run with it. And if you try to use another software, you're going to not only void the warranty, but you're probably crashed the entire machine. This is the system of Allah subhanho wa Taala Islam is the operating system for humanity. submitting to that is what being a Muslim means being a Muslim is means one who submits one who submits to Allah it is a verb it means action. It means you do something. Islam is the system to

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

submit to Allah Subhana Allah with Allah with sincerity, with obedience, with genuine, heartfelt obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna ye so that the end result can be peace, the end result can be peace. I've unfortunately heard so many people traveling the world and I've been to so many our conferences and lectures and

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

People will say Islam means peace. And then they just leave it at that. And I'm just telling them you're not even giving them half the story. Because peace does not happen. As as a as a hope and a dream. It does not happen through osmosis that we pray for peace and all of a sudden there's peace. No, Islam is a system which brings peace in his through the Islam. It is through following the orders of Allah subhanho wa taala. And it is through obeying Allah the same way Ibrahim at a cinammon his Sunday. It is through submitting to Allah that the peace comes first you get personal peace. You get peace right here, that even though even though Ibrahim alayhi salam had taken his son

00:10:39--> 00:11:17

had bought the knife, both of them had tranquility in their heart. There was no fear there was no word on the internet before they brought the alarm. On the night when the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam made his Indra and left him in his bed surrounded by assassins. Ali said about that night I never had more beautiful sleep. I never had more peace. When Abu Bakr was in the cave of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam and the Meccans were the enemy was right outside. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam told him when he was worried and say oh Messenger of Allah, if they look to see if they look at their feet, they're gonna see his he said, Oh, Abu Bakr, what do you think about two people

00:11:17--> 00:11:39

who the third is Allah. He said, after that a tranquility as Sakina descended upon me that even in that hardest of conditions, I had peace and tranquility. This is Islam, it brings the peace. So if we see a world that does not have peace, it has and seeks to bring peace in this world because of their Islam. That was what we see in the story of Abraham at a Sudan in the summer.

00:11:40--> 00:11:48

That's what we see from them. That's what we see them doing in sha Allah Jota Anna. And lastly, lastly, the sacrifice itself.

00:11:50--> 00:12:28

Allah subhanho wa Taala has designed a system by with which you want great reward, there must be great effort. If you want great reward from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and the greatest rewards that we will all want. We want Jana May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all Jana, I mean, for those I mean, but in order to get that we must pay some high prices. As we know the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said that ALLAH SubhanA wa Allah created Jana and surrounded by hardships surrounded by difficulties surrounded by women by oppression by tyranny by sometimes death, unrighteous unrighteous death, all of these things are served. This is what surrounds paradise. And in order to

00:12:28--> 00:13:01

get to Jannah there's no shortcut. You can't catapult over the friendship, you can't tunnel under it. You have to put your head down sometimes and go straight through it, and go straight through it. This is why the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said that for the hardest test in this life, for the shahada, for the people who have given their lives solely for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah saves them from any test after that. Any test they don't face the test of the grave. They don't face the test on the Day of Judgment watching people run around like madness in the sun, burning them and beating them. No, they don't face any of that. The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam

00:13:01--> 00:13:44

said their test was already so hard that Allah subhanho wa Taala has freed them from the terror in the test that they FBM so there are tests and sacrifices, sacrifices to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala is always going to be a sacrifice even to pray five Salawat in a day is a sacrifice. Yes, it is a minor sacrifice of 10 minutes of your time, five times a day, but it is still a sacrifice in today's modern rat race world where we're running to and fro head over heels on a hamster wheel just cold and going and going one day running into another. It takes some sacrifice. And Allah subhanho wa Taala understands that sacrifice and has rewarded that sacrifice so much, that he said through his

00:13:44--> 00:14:23

prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam has told us and revealed to us that upon resurrection, no human being will move from their place until they're asked about a few things and one of them is their salah, and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said, if the salah is in order, if the salah of the slave is in order, everything after that will be in order and it will be easy, but if the Salah is out of place, then everything else will be out of place and their their test on the Day of Judgment will be very difficult, small sacrifice 10 minutes a day, 510 minutes five times a day. Look at the reward Allah Subhana Allah is prepared for this small sacrifice. Whenever we sacrifice for Allah azza wa

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

jal, Allah rewards us and Allah subhanho wa Taala also reminded us in the Quran, that no you will not truly believe you will not have real believe until you give until you spend out of what the money which were provided for you. We spend out of your paycheck know Allah said until you spend from that which you love, because Allah knows is the sacrifice to give from something which you love. And people don't love anything more than money. That is the reality that the love of money is the root of most evil. And Allah is telling us that Eman comes you won't truly happy men until you get

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

from that what you love, we see in the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam and his son Ismail, for a father, for a father to be asked to sacrifice his firstborn son.

00:15:13--> 00:15:49

That is the greatest of sacrifices because Ibrahim alayhi salam money wasn't anything to he was killing them what he was the friend of Allah Subhana Allah, so Allah testing him but money wouldn't have really been a sacrifice you see, testing him with this dunya anything in this world, even a Hema they said and probably does not have much attachment to what are you going to test him with? I will test him with that which he loves the most a son that he always wanted a son that he always wanted, that he had to take a second wife to get. Now I'm asking him, he's grown up with him, he's attached to him, he has love for him. I'm going to ask him to give him back to me.

00:15:50--> 00:16:34

I'm going to ask him to give him back to me. And in reality, the life of the believer is that we own nothing in this life. Nothing we own don't even own our own bodies. My children don't belong to me. That is a reminder many parents need to be reminded about our children do not belong to us. They are in trust entrusted to us. They are something entrusted to us by Allah to raise them and guide them upon the straight path. And we will be questioned about that, but we don't own them. We don't own them, they belong to Allah. So when he's told to give his own son back, he ready to give him back. Allah He belongs to you, and send them back to you. So this is the true spirit that we find in the

00:16:34--> 00:16:35

day of evil

00:16:36--> 00:17:09

is that we are obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna we go and we offer the sacrifice in the order of Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, we are submissive to Allah subhanho wa Taala following his orders doing them, even if they might not necessarily make the most sense to us in this world today but we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to give us understanding and the ability to understand and we make sacrifices in our lives to please Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the best way that we as Muslims in 2019 can follow the example and fulfill the role of Ibrahim ASAM in our lives a Palooka was totally wala confessor.

00:17:16--> 00:17:55

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah where Allah Allah He was definitely he arginine. And as you go about your business today, celebrating with your family, celebrating you know, with your your loved ones, as you go out and you slaughter and and give this food away. Please remember on this auspicious day, to remember those who are less fortunate than us. Remember those who do not have the luxuries today that we are having. The Muslim OMA is suffering, it's bleeding. It is literally and I'm not saying this in an allegorical way. But Muslim Ummah is bleeding, the bleeding, they're dying, they're crying, they're begging, they're begging. And I had

00:17:55--> 00:18:34

the opportunity to spend the previous 1012 years traveling the globe seeing Muslims in their lands, seeing Muslims in the West, seeing Muslims in the Middle East, seeing Muslims in Asia. And one thing I was always told and this came to me so many times is that Muslims all over the world look to us in the West, they look to the Muslims of America, they look to us and say Allah has blessed you guys with so much. You guys take it for granted. You guys complain, we complain, we complain, we complain, we complain. We are professional complainers Muslims have marketed and cornered that field of complaining, we're very good at it. Our complaints first and foremost should be to Allah subhanho

00:18:34--> 00:19:11

wa Taala and alone. But on top of that, we should use what Allah has given us. They've told us I spent times I used I even went to Mandela Kenya a few years ago, Mandela Kenya for those of you know, Kenya know that in Mandela, there's nothing, literally nothing. There's just huge bear trees with huge vultures nest, and we went there to bring water to them, when they to bring water to them. And there was an old lady in a village we brought water to they used to have to walk 10 miles every single day to get water. And so we were sitting down with some of the elders and one of the oldest people in the village was it was it was a woman and she started crying and we you know, we asked her

00:19:11--> 00:19:47

Are you happy now that the water is going to come? She said, No, I'm not happy. And I'm thinking we're thinking to ourselves what in with, you know, we did all this and you're not even happy. She said, the reason I am not happy is because when we had to work so hard for this life giving resource, we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for every child, every drop we think the law for because we had to earn it, we didn't waste none of it and we thank Allah for all of it. Now I am afraid if it is just flowing out of a tap for us, that we will forget the blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we will forget to thank Allah for it. It's so easy now. And that Allah subhanho wa Taala will

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

hold us to account for this. This is a woman of men. This is defines the Western ideology. This defines the ideology of the people of the West that things are made so easy for us.

00:20:00--> 00:20:33

We take them for granted we can go and turn on a tap and water is just flowing out. We can go and open a refrigerator and it's full of food. We can go to the supermarket and refill it. We have Sam's and Costco. I mean, have you seen the size of the containers of food in Sam's and Costco, one of those cans of food could feed a village for like a month. In most parts of the world, we just take it for granted throw away most of it Subhanallah so today when you were doing this, please make sure that if you are enjoying with your family, thank Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for you have because he could take it from you at any moment. Make dua for those who do not have and do not be wasteful,

00:20:33--> 00:21:07

do not be wasteful. I know on the Eid, we like to eat a lot. But make sure you take only what you can eat, you can always get more but you can't put it back. So be very very mindful that when you do the Quran and you give away the meat be very very frugal about how you do it. Make sure it goes to people who are in need and do not put us into waste and Shama Jota Anna, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give us Tofik and ability. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to forgive us on this great they are an antenna for dunya Hassan will ask you that he has worked in other dinar rabbit fildena The Lumina Weiss Rafi and Marina whatever the epiderm and when sunnah Communicare 15 Allah Holman, Surah
