In our last sitting,
we covered the commandments given to Ibrahim by Allah 'tala

Link for that lecture:

And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) said, "My Lord, make this city (Makkah) a place of security and provide its people with fruits, such of them as believe in Allâh and the Last Day." He (Allâh) answered: "As for him who disbelieves, I shall leave him in contentment for a while, then I shall compel him to the torment of the Fire, and worst indeed is that destination!" (Al-Baqara 2:126)

Ibrahim asked Allah to make this house (the Kab’a)..

-a special place where fruits and plenty would provided for the Muslims
-this shows that Ibrahim practiced al walaa wal baraa
-he specified to bless the believers [not kaafirs just believers]
-he said 'the believers' and 'those who believe in the last day'
-it's haraam to start wars in Mecca because it's a city of safety
-we can't kill people there or start wars there
-there's no natural disasters there because of Ibrahim's dua
-when we go to Mecca to perform umrah in Ramadan ...

By this city of security (Makkah), (At-Tin 95:3)

-it's like hajj: we get the same baraka as hajj
-when we pray in Mecca, there are places we get answered dua
-this spot is called: Maqam Ibrahim

There are 4 times Allah agreed with Umar
1. When Umar said we should take Maqam Ibrahim

-as a place to pray [where he stood when building the Kab'a]

...and take ye the station of Abraham as a place of prayer; [Al-Baqara 2:125]

-so when we make tawaf and pray 2 rakat [on umrah you can but for hajj,
-it might be took crowded]

Narrated 'Umar (bin Al-Khattab): My Lord agreed with me in three things: I said, "O Allah's Apostle, I wish we took the station of Abraham as our praying place (for some of our prayers). So came the Divine Inspiration: And take you (people) the station of Abraham as a place of prayer (for some of your prayers e.g. two Rakat of Tawaf of Ka'ba)". (2.125)

-Umar suggested this to the prophet (saws)

2. When Umar told the Prophet (saws) to let the women wear hijab

Narrated 'Aisha: The wives of the Prophet used to go to Al-Manasi, a vast open place (near Baqia at Medina) to answer the call of nature at night. 'Umar used to say to the Prophet "Let your wives be veiled," but Allah's Apostle did not do so. One night Sauda bint Zam'a the wife of the Prophet went out at 'Isha' time and she was a tall lady.

'Umar addressed her and said, "I have recognized you, O Sauda." He said so, as he desired eagerly that the verses of Al-hijab (the observing of veils by the Muslim women) may be revealed. So Allah revealed the verses of "Al-hijab" (A complete body cover excluding the eyes). (Bukhari: Book #4, Hadith #148)

And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (ordinarily) appear thereof;... [Al-Noor 24:21]

3. At the Battle of Badr, he said kill the kuffaar who were POWs (prisoners of war)

It is not fitting for an apostle that he should have prisoners of war until he hath thoroughly subdued the land. Ye look for the temporal goods of this world; but Allah looketh to the Hereafter; and Allah is Exalted in might Wise. (Al-Anfal 8:67)

4. When the Prophet prayed over Abdullah ibn Ubai

Verily! those who brought forth the slander (against 'Aishah radhiallahu'anhu the wife of the Prophet SAW) are a group among you. Consider it not a bad thing for you. Nay, it is good for you. Unto every man among them will be paid that which he had earned of the sin, and as for him among them who had the greater share therein, his will be a great torment. (Al-Noor 24:11)

-he is one of those who accused Aisha (r.a.) of having an affair
-but the Prophet (saws) prayed over him but Umar objected (and Ubai was a hypocrite)
-he started the 'Chinese whispers' [gossip]
-the shaitan manipulated the feelings of asabiyya [racism/tribalism]
-'exploit the rift" - turn tribes against tribes

And never (O Muhammad SAW) pray (funeral prayer) for any of them (hypocrites) who dies, nor stand at his grave. Certainly they disbelieved in Allâh and His Messenger, and died while they were Fasiqun (rebellious, - disobedient to Allâh and His Messenger SAW). (Al-Tawba 9:84)

-so praying over Ubai was a mistake
-it's haraam for us to go to the janaza of a munafiqh
-if we know someone worked for the United Nations or worked in the kuffaar army
-we're not permitted to go to that person's janaza
-your will should specify which Shaikh should pray over you @ your janaza
-but the topic of death is distasteful; this is why people don't write wills
-it should tell your family to be distributed according to Shariah law
-if you specify for your possessions to go to the kaafir government,
-instead of Shariah, you are a kaafir
-put in your will who's to wash your body ...
-be careful whom you mention; they should be pious
-the best person to wash a woman's body is her husband or her mother
-Ali washed Fatima and he buried her at night
-no one in the world knows where she's buried
-pick several people to do this in case some are not available

Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab : When 'Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul died, Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) was called upon to offer his funeral prayer. When Allah's Apostle stood up to offer the prayer, I got up quickly and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Are you going to pray for Ibn Ubai and he said so and so on such and such occasions?" And started mentioning all that he had said. Allah's Apostle smiled and said, "O 'Umar! Go away from me." When I talked too much he said, "I have been given the choice and so I have chosen (to offer the prayer). Had I known that he would be forgiven by asking for Allah's forgiveness for more than seventy times, surely I would have done so." ('Umar added): Allah's Apostle offered his funeral prayer and returned and after a short while the two verses of Surat Bara' were revealed: i.e. "And never (O Muhammad) pray for any of them who dies . . . (to the end of the verse) rebellion (9.84) ('Umar added), "Later I astonished at my daring before Allah's Apostle on that day. And Allah and His Apostle know better." (Bukhari, Book #23, Hadith #447)

-the Dajjaal can not go into Mecca because of Ibrahim's dua

By the fig, and the olive, (1) By Mount Sinai, (2) By this city of security (Makkah), (3) [At-Tin 95:1-3]

-if you pray by the Black Stone or Maqam Ibrahim, your dua is accepted

1) the Maqam of Ibrahim
2) the black stone
3) the Well of Zamzam
4) on Mt Al-Safa
5) on Mt Al-Marwa
6) in the Valley of Minah
7) on Mt Arafat

MECCA is the holiest place and the safest place on earth

-there are no wars there
-the Dajjal isn't allowed there
-these are all due to one prayer by Ibrahim
-in MECCA, the men who sold expensive watched,
-left them outside the masjid and went to pray
-no one stole those watches during that time
-this could not happen in Europe; the watches would be stolen


WHEN you live in Mecca,
-you're the neighbor of Allah 'tala
-because your house is next to His (swt) house [the Kab'a]
-make hijrah to Mecca or Medina
-it's a great blessing to live there and it's a great disappointment to leave
-praying @ the Kab'a is = to 100,000 salah
-the educated Muslims will be leaving the UK and other places to go to Mecca
-because it's embarrassing to live amongst people who do not like you

-he was pampered in Saudi but in the UK, it was a cultural shock
-to be among people who are racism and prejudiced for color, race, religion
-in Stockwell Tube Station (UK), the police gave the boy 7 bullets in his head
-they assumed he was a Muslim and shot him but it was not true
-the shaitan tells us: we're not the ones
-who didn't get the 7 bullets, so it didn't happen
-but there was a bullet to the chest of a Bengali
-whom the kuffaar shot because they thought he was a Muslim
-and yet, we feel it didn't happen to us

-black Christians are liked better than a Pakistani Muslim
-those who hate us the most will be yahood .. like the Hindus who worship idols

Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikûn (see V.2:105), .. (Al-Maeda 5:82)

-the yahood knows we're following the right religion,
-but in the name of pride, he can't follow it
-Allah (tala) didn't give him hidaaya to practice the right deen
-people hate us because we establish the hujjah against them

Ibrahim's dua to bless Mecca was answered by Allah 'tala (in part)
-he asked for fruits and blessings for those who believe in Allah and the Last Day

Narrated Abu Huraira Allah's Apostle said, "One prayer in my Mosque is better than one thousand prayers in any other mosque excepting Al-Masjid-AI-Haram." (Book #21, Hadith #282)

-we see he practiced al walaa wal baraa
-but Allah 'tala added, even the kaafir because
-He (swt) wanted them to have good FOR A TIME
-and then be dumped in the Hellfire
-the Rasool (saws) said the dunya is a prison for the believer
-but a Jannah for the kaafir

Narrated Abu Huraira, the Prophet (saw) said, “The dunya is a prison for the believers and Paradise for the kaafir (disbeliever),” [Sahih Muslim, Vol.4, #7058]


-their alcohol, girls and their illegal activity
-their girlfriends .. even though they say you can have girlfriends but not wives
-their laws were put together by devils in human form
-in kufrdom, don't expect to find halal / haraam but legal / illegal
-we're not permitted to envy them for the nightclubs and drinking and haraam

Narrated Abu Huraira, the Prophet (saw) said, “The dunya is a prison for the believers and Paradise for the kaafir (disbeliever),” [Sahih Muslim, Vol.4, #7058]

You will inevitably follow the paths of those who came before you, handspan by handspan, cubit by cubit, until even if they entered the hole of a lizard, you will follow them.” We said, “O Messenger of Allaah, (do you mean) the Jews and Christians?” He said, “Who else?” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, al-I’tisaam bi’l-Kitaab wa’l-Sunnah, 6889; Muslim, al-‘Ilm, 6723).

-this dunya is the Paradise of the kuffaar
-so they don’t' care about the ingredients: they practice bestiality
-a woman died after having s-x w/ a dog ...
-a kaafir will sleep w/ a person or an animal


NORWAY BOMBING:,7340,L-4099461,00.html
-the man who did it HATES Muslims ..
-but we were thought to be the one who did it [we = Muslims]

-we must stay in-tune w/ the news in the world
-so we know our enemy and we know what's going on around us
-see 23:71

And if the truth had been in accordance with their desires, verily, the heavens and the earth, and whosoever is therein would have been corrupted! Nay, We have brought them their reminder, but they turn away from their reminder. (Al-Mumenoon 23:71)

-we're not to go along with the evil desires of the kuffaar


And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) said, "My Lord, make this city (Makkah) a place of security and provide its people with fruits, such of them as believe in Allâh and the Last Day." He (Allâh) answered: "As for him who disbelieves, I shall leave him in contentment for a while, then I shall compel him to the torment of the Fire, and worst indeed is that destination!" (Al-Baqara 2:126)

-how is this relevant to a woman getting a virus from a dog in 2011?
-this is fiqhul waaqi: we're to know current events
-and the tafseer is that Allah 'tala is going to make them
-enjoy themselves FOR A TIME
-and then be expelled to the Hellfire afterward
-so the kuffaar go to extremes to enjoying themselves
-they have no limits, but we, the Muslim, have limits
-they live for money, technology and pleasures of the flesh

Certainly! Allâh will admit those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh Islâmic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, to Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), while those who disbelieve enjoy themselves and eat as cattle eat, and the Fire will be their abode. (Muhammad 47:12)

MUTAH is a temporary marriage just for fun

-the kuffaar have fun FOR A TIME / FOR A WHILE
-don't envy the kuffaar for their temporary fun

-Texas, US is the fattest state


-the kuffaar eat like cattle eat
-they worship the flesh and maximize the # of s-xual partners they have
-we're not to envy them for their lifestyle as their ship is sinking!
-STD (s-xually transmitted diseases) is pandemic
-drugs are pandemic, as well
-mental diseases, as well

"Who whispers in the breasts of mankind, (5) "Of jinn and men." [An-Nas 114:5-6]

-some have ADHD [adult hyperactivity], hearing voices [hearing the shaitan]
-jahiliyya gives everyone a raw deal
-some come out of it sick or broke or diseased or depressed
-some come out of jahiliyya impotent [unable to make an erection]
-that man should not propose to a woman

"But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur'ân nor acts on its teachings) verily,
for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection." (Ta-Ha 20:124)


-he will introduce the two and the sister complains the brother is depressed
-their happiness in jahiliyya is NOT for real; it's fake
-some take a pill called, PROZAC [anti-depressant]

THE KUFFAAR wish they had our
-our contentment (tama'neena)
-our good health
-our physical appearance

And whosoever turns away blindly from the remembrance of the Most Gracious (Allâh) (i.e. this Qur'ân and worship of Allâh), We appoint for him Shaitan (Satan devil) to be a Qarîn (a intimate companion) to him. (Az-Zukhruf 43:36)

-our family structure; our spouses are loyal; theirs are cheating

Many of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) wish that if they could turn you away as disbelievers after you have believed, out of envy from their ownselves, even after the truth (that Muhammad Peace be upon him is Allâh's Messenger) has become manifest unto them. But forgive and overlook, till Allâh brings His Command. Verily, Allâh is Able to do all things. (Al-Baqara 2:109)

-Allah gave honor through ISLAM [mash'allah]
-not like Hosni Mubarak, who tried to get izza from Israel
-not like Saddam Hussain, who tried to get izza from the Baathists
