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 Allah and the Last Day." He (Allah) 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-Baqarah 2:126)


(make it a city of safety and security)

This du'a was answered
-no one can steal there, create mischief
-it's safe from fighting; no wars there
-no catastrophes [hurricanes, severe storms, etc]
-the Dajjal won't be able to enter Makkah

Allah tala swears in the Qur'an that Makkah is a safe and secure city

Do you see natural disasters taking place in Makkah?

-but you saw the Tsunami of Banda Aceh and Japan
-you saw Hurricane Katrina in the US
-but these do not take place in Holy Makkah

Do you see wars and rumors of wars there?
-no, but you see wars taking place in every other country
-it’s the most sacred city to Allah
-The Rasool (saws) said, "if my people didn't drive me out, I would never leave you"

When you live near Makkah, you are jaarullah [the neighbor of Allah]
-Jaarullah [neighbor of Allah]
-Makkah is the Qiblah for us so we must always face it
-when you go to hotels there, they show you where the Qiblah is ..

Prophet (pbuh) looked back and said, 'Of all Allah's earth, you are the dearest place to Allah and to me and if my people had not driven me out I would never have left you.'

-this is a sacred city and they act like it there
-the best thing in life is for you to be safe, have food and be guided
-let's see if Ibrahim made a du'a for us to be guided [Hidaaya]
-Hidaaya is the best thing in life, then comes our safety


...for the taming of the Quraish, (Quraish 106:1)the (Quraish) caravans to set forth safe in winter (to the south), and in summer (to the north without any fear), (Quraish 106:2)the Lord of this House (the Ka'bah in Makkah). (Quraish 106:3) Who has fed them against hunger, and has made them safe from fear. (Quraish 106:4)

There are 2 traditions of Quraysh:

-they go to Yemen in winter and Syria in the summer
-so when they are traveling in the caravan w/ their flag showing,
-they are not attacked and permitted to travel freely
-because they are the keepers of the Kab’a
-so how blessed is it when you live in a county where there's no fear? mash'allah!
-when we go for hajj and umrah, we don't fear someone stealing
-our things from the hotel
-it's a great barakah to be safe and it's not in darul harb
-they implement man-made laws there so they don't respect the Creator

Recapping his du'as:
1. BLESS HOLY MAKKAH (make it a city of safety and security)
-you're wondering if your home in the London suburbs,
-if kaafirs broke in your home and stole things
-they are so clever, criminals will release a gas in your home,
-so you sleep while they burglarize you
-he wanted Makkah to be free from fitnah, the Dajjal,
-natural disasters, theft, and robbery

Why don't the kaafirs have safety?
-they think they know more than Allah
-we're told to chop off the hands of thieves [see 5:38]

Cut off (from the wrist joint) the (right) hand of the thief, male or female, as a recompense for that which they committed, a punishment by way of example from Allah. And Allah is All-Powerful, All-Wise. (Al-Ma'idah 5:38)

-who said a murderer has human rights?
-where is your empathy for the victim?
-the kaafir have human rights [gone mad]
-they want to protect the [rights] of pedophiles, murderers, thieves, adulterers
-but they have no rights
-how can a drug pusher have rights? or a murderer? you forfeit your human rights!

The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter. (Al-Ma'idah 5:33)

-societies are not safe anymore because rights
-are given to the guilty, not the victims
-the pedophile, smugglers, and murderers: societies are not safe from them
-even the British PM, David Cameron, said the society is a "sick" society
-Shaikh had 4 cars stolen in the UK, incl a Mercedes Benz
-the UK is an ungodly society
-the people worship money, technology and pleasures of the flesh
-they are spiritually empty, morally bankrupt and ethically perverse
-The kaafirs diagnose the problem
-but they don't bring the solution
-David Cameron diagnosed but didn't have the solution: THE SOLUTION IS ISLAM

1. life
2. wealth
3. izza (honor)
4. aql
5. lineage
6. deen

Only when Shariah is implemented,
these 6 sacred things can be safeguarded.
-when we don't pay zakah, Allah strikes us w/ famine

So, Ibrahim's 2nd du'a was:

-had it not been for the animals, Allah would not bother to send the rain

"A people do not keep from giving the zakah on their wealth except that they will be kept from having rain from the sky. If it were not for the animals, it would not rain at all". (Ibn Maajah, according to al-Albaani it is Sahih, see Silsilat al-Hadeeth as-Saheehah, vol.1, hadith no. 106)


-so he prayed that the du'a would be accepted
-He and his son, Ishmael, were building the Kab'a
-and they stopped while building the foundation
-they prayed
-Ibrahim asked Allah "accept my humble effort"
-he didn't pray and ASSUME the du'a would be accepted

"Verily, Allah accepts only from those who are Al-Muttaqûn (5:27)

Our intentions to do tasks must be right

-not to show off, seeking fame or fortune, and
-must not be in accord w/ bid'ah but Sunnah
-some of us are sincere but SINCERELY WRONG


Did you do your deeds according to Sunnah?

-they must be in accord w/ the Rasool (salalah alayhi wa salam)

And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it), and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. (Al-Hashr 59:7)

-we must live our lives and practice our deen in accord w/ the Sunnah
-we're not to show or seek fame/fortune
-and do in accord to the Rasool (salalah alayhi wa salam)
-So, Ibrahim did not ASSUME his efforts would be accepted, he made a du'a for it
-at the end of our deeds [hajj, umrah, jihad],
-we should make a du'a that our deeds were accepted


Our Lord! And make us submissive unto You and of our offspring a nation submissive unto You, and show us our Manasik (all the ceremonies of pilgrimage - Hajj and 'Umrah, etc.), and accept our repentance. Truly, You are the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful. (Al-Baqarah 2:128)


-a good father will pray that his children become Muslims,
-as well as their children/grandchildren

1. traveler
2. oppressed
3. father for his children
[meaning, parents, as well]

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said; Three supplications will not be rejected (by Allah (SWT)), the supplication of the parent for his child, the supplication of the one who is fasting, and the supplication of the traveler. [al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi - Sahih]

In another hadith; The Prophet (SAW) declared: 'Three du'as are surely answered: The du'a of the oppressed, the du'a of the traveler, and the du'a of the father/mother (upon their child)'. The One who is suffering injustice is heard by Allah (SWT) when he invokes Allah (SWT) to retain his rights from the unjust one or oppressor. [al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi - Sahih]

Do not assume that because you're Muslim, your child will become Muslim
-Prophet Noah had a kaafir son

-there was a march called MARDI GRAS [they have in New Orleans, US too]
-this is when homos-xuals rally for their cause
-there were many Asian kids marching as "gay Muslims"

JEWS ARE NOT MUSLIMS, as they reject Muhammad
-they came from the bloodline of Isaac
-Arabs come from Ishmael
-the bloodline of Ishmael was asked to be blessed and Allah answered that du'a
-the bloodline of Arabs is mostly Muslim
-(though there are some Syria, Jordan, Egypt, and Sham are Christians)

O you who believe! Verily, among your wives and your children there are enemies for you (i.e. may stop you from the obedience of Allah), therefore beware of them! But if you pardon (them) and overlook, and forgive (their faults), then verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (At-Taghabun 64:14)

Ibrahim did not leave his actions to chance:

-he made du'a for that effort to be blessed
-whatever he wanted, he begged it from Allah
-he asked for the Kab’a to be blessed and safe
-he made du'a for a son and bless that lineage
-as Muslims, we shouldn’t leave anything to chance:
-beg for halal earnings, sincerity, and a righteous marriage partner


-when you make hajj, all your sins are forgiven
-on hajj, you didn't have s-x (jimaa3 w/ your spouse),
-and didn’t' abuse people then
-all your sins are forgiven
-when we're in Mina, we have 3 jamaarat to stone
-when we make it properly (hajj), we are like a new born babe w/o sin

“He who possess enough food for the trip, a means of transportation to reach to Makkah, and yet does not perform Hajj, then he dies, he would then die as a Jew or a Christian” (At-Tirmithi, Al-Bazzaar, and others).

Imam Ali ibn Hussain Zainul Abedin (A.S.) says: Pilgrim of God's House will be forgiven, and he is entitled to go to heaven and his family and possessions will be safe and immune.


"Whoever performs Hajj and does not commit any Rafath (obscenity) or Fusuq (transgression), he returns (free from sin) as the day his mother bore him" (Sahih Bukhari)

Ibrahim's 3 lies / sins:
1. that he was sick
2. when he lied about the broken idols
3. he lied about Saraah being his wife

Prophet's do not do sins deliberately

-it's more like a mistake
-but Prophet Yunus was in the belly of the whale
-[he refused to go to Iraq to give dawah]
-even when Adam ate from haraam tree, it was more like a mistake
-because the shaitan said, "wallahi"
-these sins are not deliberate
-they needed coaching


"Oh Allah, raise from among them a Messenger"
-Muhammad (salalah alayhi wa salam) was sent by Allah 'tala
-but there was a bonus from Allah 'tala to Ibrahim




And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) not but as a mercy for the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-Anbiya 21:107)

**there is a hadith that says when a righteous scholar dies, the animals cry because he used to tell people to be kind to the animals [tareej unknown]

In a hadith narrated by Abu Umamah and ascribed to the Prophet (peace be upon him) we read: “Allah, His angels and the inhabitants of heavens and earth; nay, even the ant in its hole and the whales in the sea, pray for the one who teaches people what is good.”


Now, we switch to a new dars where the following du’as come from Surah Ibrahim and the poets.

These topics are prepared for us
-so we know what's important for the Prophet Ibrahim
-because when we pray, we pray for what's important to us
-the best du'a is for Hidaaya
-we're all begging Allah subhan'wa'tala for wealth, health,
-spouses, pious kids and so forth, halal earnings
-we all have different du'as
-Luqman said the heaviest thing was a wicked neighbor [hadith please]

So, what are the other next 11 supplications / du'as of Prophet Ibrahim?


"O my Lord! Make me one who performs As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and (also) from my offspring, our Lord! And accept my invocation. (Ibrahim 14:40)


-salah is the most important act of ibaadah
-if we love Allah, we love salah
-ask yourself, "Is salah a burden for me?"
-if so, you don't love Allah
-the Sahabahs would pray 1 salah and sit and wait for the NEXT salah!
-when is the last time we did that?

90% of the ummah do not pray 5x a day
-these also find Ramadan, hajj, jihad, saum all as burdens
-their love for Allah is weak
-Muslimahs can NOT marry a man who doesn't pray
-because if we don't pray, we are kaafirs [Ibn Hanbal's madhab]

The difference between a man (Muslim) and shirk and kufr is the abandoning of salaah. (Sahih Muslim: Kitab ul Iman: Book 001, Number 0147)

-the Sahabahs only consider abandoning salah as kufr
-the difference between a Muslim and a kaafir is the salah

Narrated 'Abdullah ibn Shaqiq al-'Aqeely, "The companions of Muhammad, peace be upon him, did not consider the abandonment of any act, with the exception of prayer, as being disbelief (kufr)." (Tirmizhi and al-Hakim, who said it met al-Bukahri's and Muslim's conditions)

-some people say they are following Hanafi madhabs so they don't need to pray salah
-they think they are 'good to go'
-but this is not true: if we don't pray, we are kaafirs [see above hadith]
-see Taubah: 11

But if they repent, perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give Zakat, then they are your brethren in religion. (In this way) We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail for a people who know. (At-Tawbah 9:11)

Ibn Abbas related that he heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) saying: “The fire will not touch the two pairs of eyes; one that sheds tears out of fear of Allah and the other that keeps watch throughout the night in the cause of Allah.” (Nasa’i, Tirmidhi):

"Observing Ribaat (e.g., guarding the Islamic frontier for the sake of Allah) for a single day is far better than the world and all that it contains. A place in Jannah as small as the whip of your horse is far better than the world and all that it contains. An endeavour (fighting) in the Cause of Allah in the evening or in the morning is far better than the world and all that it contains.'' [Riyad-us-Saliheen, Book 11, Chapter 234, #1290]

-living in Palestine, they get barakah for doing ribaat
-to do 1 day in the path of Allah is better than the dunya
-and what it contains [hadith]
-if they were not there, the Jews would have torn down Masjid Al-Aqsa
-they are waiting for the Dajjaal to come, as we wait for Imam Mahdi
-in Madinah, even the munafiqoon used to establish the salah
-so they hid behind it

"Our Lord! Forgive me and my parents, and (all) the believers on the Day when the reckoning will be established." (Ibrahim 14:41)


At all times,
he included the believers in his du'as
-when he begged for Allah to bless the people of Makkah w/ fruits, what did he say?

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 Allah and the Last Day." (2:126)

-when he asked for food or forgiveness, he would say "the believers"
-Ibrahim told his wife Saraah he'd divorce her so she could marry the King of Egypt
-because she's firmly grounded in tawheed and
-could revert the King so all of Egypt would embrace Islam
-look how unselfish Ibrahim was! He was going to sacrifice his wife for the dawah!
-his aims and objectives were always dawah dawah dawah
-he was a sincere believer
-he didn't care about the dunya but the kaafirs becoming Muslims


-we will be asked what we did w/ our Islamic knowledge
-did we use it to cement the thrones of the apostate regimes or the ummah?
-when we have righteous children to pray for us, this is a wonderful thing
-sisters should want to give birth to make righteous kids
-to pray for us while in the grave

All our good dads come to a halt when we die except 3 things:


Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: A continuous charity, knowledge by which people derive benefit, pious son who prays for him.'' [Muslim]

Why did Ibrahim pray for his parents? After all, he was righteous so weren't they?

And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) said: "O my Lord! Make this city (Makkah) one of peace and security, and keep me and my sons away from worshipping idols. (Ibrahim 14:35)


This refers to BANI [one] not ibn [more than one]

-Ishmael was the only son w/ Ibrahim; [Isaac wasn't born till 13 years later]
-they took priests and rabbis instead of Allah 'tala

They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allah), (9:31)

-the bloodline of Ishmael is the ones who abandoned idol worshipping
-[they are Arabs]
-they make haraam, halal and halal, haraam
-the bloodline of Isaac is the Jews, worshipping the golden calf

"O my Lord! They have indeed led astray many among mankind. But whoso follows me, he verily is of me. And whoso disobeys me, still You are indeed Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Ibrahim 14:36)

***note: we already covered that Ibrahim's du'a
to keep Makkah safe and secure was answered

'Adi Ibn Hatim said that he came to the Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa sallam)wearing a gold cross around his neck. The Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "O 'Adi! Throw away this idol from yourself." Then the Prophet sallalahu alaihi wa sallam recited the verse: They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah" (9:31) "It was not that they worshipped these people, but rather whatever they made permissible for them, they believed it to be permissible and whatever they forbade, they believed to be unlawful. " (Tirmidhi)

-as we don’t' see wars, famine, natural disasters there
-Makkah and its people are safe today because of the du'a long ago

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

Pagans don't belong to the bloodline of Ishmael

-they need to follow the Millat of Ibrahim


"O my Lord! They have indeed led astray many among mankind. But whoso follows me, he verily is of me. And whoso disobeys me, - still You are indeed Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Ibrahim 14:36)

Muslims follow Millat Ibrahim
-please bring this link; we have it
-he also asked to forgive those who don't follow his Millat

"O our Lord! I have made some of my offspring to dwell in an uncultivable valley by Your Sacred House (the Ka'bah at Makkah); in order, O our Lord, that they may perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), so fill some hearts among men with love towards them, and (O Allah) provide them with fruits so that they may give thanks. (Ibrahim 14:37)


It's a great feeling to be loved

-why do you think the UK Muslims want to make hijrah?
-because they are hated there by the kaafirs
-so Ibrahim asked Allah, please make my family loved in a kaafir country
-the valley is uncultivated; no trees or vegetation [zamzam was not even there yet]
-I want them to be able to establish the salah and give thanks
-he begged Allah to put love in the hearts of men to be loved
-when Allah loves you, He (swt) tells the Angel Gabriel
-the angels love or hate us according to what Allah (swt) saws about us

The Prophet(saw) said: “When Allah loves a servant, He calls Gabriel and says, ‘Verily I love so and so; you should also love him’, and Gabriel begins to love him. Then he(Gabriel) makes an announcement in the heaven saying, ‘Allah loves so and so, you should also love him’, and then the inhabitants of the heavens (the angels) also begin to love him and then there conferred honour upon him in the earth; and whenever Allah dislikes a servant of His, HE calls Gabriel and says, ‘I dislike so and so you should also dislike him’, and then Gabriel also dislikes him and then makes an announcement amongst the inhabitants of heaven,

‘Verily ALLAH dislike so and so, so you should dislike him’, and thus they also dislike him. Then he becomes the object of wrath of the earth also”. (Sahih Muslim (English translation) Vol. 4 pg1385 No.6373)


My Lord! Bestow Hukman (religious knowledge, right judgment of the affairs and Prophethood) on me, and join me with the righteous; (Ash-Shu'ara 26:83)

WISDOM / HIKMAH is to do

-the right thing at the right time in the right place and at the right time
-and in the right manner, for example:

Many people PM Shaikh right before class w/ a serious question that can't be answered in 2 minutes
-they have no hikmah
-not even is blessed w/ wisdom

He grants Hikmah to whom He pleases, and he, to whom Hikmah is granted, is indeed granted abundant good. (2:269)
People PM Shaikh in the middle of a speech
- to ask a FIQH question not even related to the topic
-they lack hikmah

The Prophet Muhammad (saws) said
-"do you want me to give you the names of all your companions"

-when Umar asked him to give the names of those Angel Gabriel knows

"Do not wish to be like anyone except in two cases. (The first is) A person, whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it righteously; (the second is) the one whom Allah has given wisdom (the Holy Qur'an) and he acts according to it and teaches it to others." (Fateh-al-Bari page 177 Vol. 1) [Sahih Bukhari]


-those who spend wealth wisely and those who are given wisdom (hikmah)

Knowledge alone is not enough;
-without wisdom, it's a recipe for disaster
-we need wisdom to go w/ knowledge

A Sahabah wanted to make Tayammum
-but the Sahabahs told him no, make ghusl
-he did so but the water got in the wound he received in jihad battle and the infection killed him
-the Sahabahs, therefore, were not acting wisely
-because we have Tayammum for a reason

"We were on a journey and one of us got injured. Later, he had a wet dream. He asked his companions, 'Can I perform Tayammum?' They said, 'No, not if you have water.' He performed ghusl and died. When they came to the Messenger of Allah, they informed him of what had transpired. He said, 'They killed him, Allah will kill them. Do you not ask if you do not know? The rescue of the ignorant person is the question. He could have performed Tayammum and dropped water on his wound or wrapped it with something and wipe over the wrapping, and wash the rest of his body." This is related by Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, ad-Daraqutni and Ibn as-Sakin, who said it is sahih

There are many examples of Muhammad's wisdom:

-a young man asked if he can kiss his wife during saum in Ramadan; he was told NO
-but the old man who asked was told YES
-this is because young men have raging hormones and
-Muhammad had the wisdom to discern this
-everyone was not answered the same way:
-someone might be told not to be angry [because he has anger issues]
-but another also asks, how can I be a good Muslim"
-and he's told renounce what people posses

Abdullah Ibn `Amr Ibn al-`Aas said: "We were with the Prophet when a youth came and said: 'May I kiss [my wife] while I am fasting?' He (the Prophet) said: 'No'. Then an old man came and said: 'May I kiss [my wife] while I am fasting?' He said: 'Yes'. So we began looking at one another, so Allah's Messenger said: 'The old man is able to control himself' [Ahmad; Hasan]

-because maybe he had a problem w/ dunya matters
-so he gave different strokes to different folks [people]

When Shaikh is asked questions here
-from those he doesn't know
-he will tell you to go to your local shaikh because he doesn't know your background
-it's important to give an answer
-memorizing book knowledge w/o wisdom, is a recipe for disasters
-many shaikhs, imams and mulanas have NO wisdom;
-maybe book knowledge, yes, but no wisdom


It's not good for us to be in evil company

My Lord! Bestow Hukman (religious knowledge, right judgment of the affairs and Prophethood) on me, and join me with the righteous; (Ash-Shu'ara 26:83)

-make me be in the company of the righteous (see 26:83)
-we all belong to the religion of our friends

The Prophet (saw) said: “A man will follow the religion of his close friend, so let each of you look to who he takes a close friend.” (Narrated by Al-Tirmidhi, 2378)

-on Facebook, don't have a friend who is NOT practicing
-the only intention would be to invite them to Islam
-be careful who you take as a friend
-did you know that Ibrahim was called the FRIEND OF ALLAH
-as a Muslim, we need to practice al walla wal baraa
-love those who love Allah and hate those who hate Allah
-we can have associates [ie at work, school] but a FRIEND: can not be a kaafir

O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitanah (advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends, etc.) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites) (3:118)

…since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed We have made plain to you the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses) if you understand. (Aali Imran 3:118)

-the kuffaar will do their best to corrupt us
-and they will never stop trying to corrupt us
-you friend can and will try to corrupt you
-we're warned what type of people to take as friends
-why is a munafiqh your friend, anyway?
-are you THAT insecure?
-if you're emotionally insecure, you will choose a kaafir as a friend
-it's better to have 5 good Muslims for friends than 500 munafiqhs
-some of you have such big egos that you have 500 friends on Facebook
-but 450 of them [or more] are munafiqoon
-listen to Ibrahim du'a: see 26:83

My Lord! Bestow Hukman (religious knowledge, right judgment of the affairs and Prophethood) on me, and join me with the righteous; (Ash-Shu'ara 26:83)

-put him in the company of the righteous people
-we bring these du'as to you for a purpose:
-in spite of him being a prophet, he asked,
-'keep me and my family away from worshipping idols'
-answered in 3:67
-if he, A PROPHET needs this du'a, so do we

Ibrahim (Abraham) was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was a true Muslim Hanifa (Islamic Monotheism - to worship none but Allah Alone) and he was not of Al-Mushrikûn (See V.2:105). (Aali Imran 3:67)

All these du'as of Ibrahim mean

-we even more so need to pray these same du'a
-he took nothing to chance; he begged Allah for what he, and his family and the ummah needed
-a woman who has emotional issues (insecure),
-she will go w/ the 1st man who comes along
-Ibrahim was specific in his du'a: he described
-the barren land where the zamzam didn't come yet
-and he prayed for wisdom and to be in the company of the righteous people

"Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a friend! (Al-Furqan 25:28)


And grant me an honourable mention in later generations; (Ash-Shu'ara 26:84)

When people remember me,
I want to be mentioned on their tongues
-look at HIS character:
-how will we be remembered in the dunya?
-will we be remembered as someone who loved Allah and had honor
-or as kaafirs like Abu Jahl and Abu Laith

ABU SUFIYAN went to Rome as a trader
-he was singled out as the closest one to Muhammad (saws)
-though he was greatest enemy of Islam at the time
-he was asked who were the greatest followers and he said THE POOR
-he was asked who wins the wars: he answered, sometimes we win,
-and sometimes he does
-he asked about Muhammad's father and that he was a trader
-everyone question he was asked about Muhammad, he answered TRUTHFULLY
-he said I didn't want to be remembered in history as a LIAR

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Abbas: Abu Sufyan bin Harb informed me that Heraclius had sent a messenger to him while he had been accompanying a caravan from Quraish. They were merchants doing business in Sham (Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan), at the time when Allah's Apostle had truce with Abu Sufyan and Quraish infidels. So Abu Sufyan and his companions went to Heraclius at Ilya (Jerusalem). Heraclius called them in the court and he had all the senior Roman dignitaries around him. He called for his translator who, translating Heraclius's question said to them, "Who amongst you is closely related to that man who claims to be a Prophet?" Abu Sufyan replied, "I am the nearest relative to him (amongst the group)." Heraclius said, "Bring him (Abu Sufyan) close to me and make his companions stand behind him." Abu Sufyan added, Heraclius told his translator to tell my companions that he wanted to put some questions to me regarding that man (The Prophet) and that if I told a lie they (my companions) should contradict me." Abu Sufyan added, "By Allah! Had I not been afraid of my companions labeling me a liar, I would not have spoken the truth about the Prophet. The first question he asked me about him was: 'What is his family status amongst you?' I replied, 'He belongs to a good (noble) family amongst us.' Heraclius further asked, 'Has anybody amongst you ever claimed the same (i.e. to be a Prophet) before him?' I replied, 'No.' He said, 'Was anybody amongst his ancestors a king?' I replied, 'No.' Heraclius asked, 'Do the nobles or the poor follow him?' I replied, 'It is the poor who follow him.' He said, 'Are his followers increasing decreasing (day by day)?' I replied, 'They are increasing.' He then asked, 'Does anybody amongst those who embrace his religion become displeased and renounce the religion afterwards?' I replied, 'No.' Heraclius said, 'Have you ever accused him of telling lies before his claim (to be a Prophet)?' I replied, 'No. ' Heraclius said, 'Does he break his promises?' I replied, 'No. We are at truce with him but we do not know what he will do in it.' I could not find opportunity to say anything against him except that. Heraclius asked, 'Have you ever had a war with him?' I replied, 'Yes.' Then he said, 'What was the outcome of the battles?' I replied, 'Sometimes he was victorious and sometimes we.' Heraclius said, 'What does he order you to do?' I said, 'He tells us to worship Allah and Allah alone and not to worship anything along with Him, and to renounce all that our ancestors had said. He orders us to pray, to speak the truth, to be chaste and to keep good relations with our Kith and kin.' Heraclius asked the translator to convey to me the following, I asked you about his family and your reply was that he belonged to a very noble family. In fact all the Apostles come from noble families amongst their respective peoples. I questioned you whether anybody else amongst you claimed such a thing, your reply was in the negative. If the answer had been in the affirmative, I would have thought that this man was following the previous man's statement. Then I asked you whether anyone of his ancestors was a king. Your reply was in the negative, and if it had been in the affirmative, I would have thought that this man wanted to take back his ancestral kingdom. I further asked whether he was ever accused of telling lies before he said what he said, and your reply was in the negative. So I wondered how a person who does not tell a lie about others could ever tell a lie about Allah. I, then asked you whether the rich people followed him or the poor. You replied that it was the poor who followed him. And in fact all the Apostle have been followed by this very class of people. Then I asked you whether his followers were increasing or decreasing. You replied that they were increasing, and in fact this is the way of true faith, till it is complete in all respects. I further asked you whether there was anybody, who, after embracing his religion, became displeased and discarded his religion. Your reply was in the negative, and in fact this is (the sign of) true faith, when its delight enters the hearts and mixes with them completely. I asked you whether he had ever betrayed. You replied in the negative and likewise the Apostles never betray. Then I asked you what he ordered you to do. You replied that he ordered you to worship Allah and Allah alone and not to worship any thing along with Him and forbade you to worship idols and ordered you to pray, to speak the truth and to be chaste. If what you have said is true, he will very soon occupy this place underneath my feet and I knew it (from the scriptures) that he was going to appear but I did not know that he would be from you, and if I could reach him definitely, I would go immediately to meet him and if I were with him, I would certainly wash his feet.' Heraclius then asked for the letter addressed by Allah's Apostle which was delivered by Dihya to the Governor of Busra, who forwarded it to Heraclius to read. The contents of the letter were as follows: "In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful (This letter is) from Muhammad the slave of Allah and His Apostle to Heraclius the ruler of Byzantine. Peace be upon him, who follows the right path. Furthermore I invite you to Islam, and if you become a Muslim you will be safe, and Allah will double your reward, and if you reject this invitation of Islam you will be committing a sin by misguiding your Arisiyin (peasants). (And I recite to you Allah's Statement:) 'O people of the scripture! Come to a word common to you and us that we worship none but Allah and that we associate nothing in worship with Him, and that none of us shall take others as Lords beside Allah. Then, if they turn away, say: Bear witness that we are Muslims (those who have surrendered to Allah).' (3:64). Abu Sufyan then added, "When Heraclius had finished his speech and had read the letter, there was a great hue and cry in the Royal Court. So we were turned out of the court. I told my companions that the question of Ibn-Abi-Kabsha) (the Prophet Muhammad) has become so prominent that even the King of Bani Al-Asfar (Byzantine) is afraid of him. Then I started to become sure that he (the Prophet) would be the conqueror in the near future till I embraced Islam (i.e. Allah guided me to it)." The sub narrator adds, "Ibn An-Natur was the Governor of llya' (Jerusalem) and Heraclius was the head of the Christians of Sham. Ibn An-Natur narrates that once while Heraclius was visiting ilya' (Jerusalem), he got up in the morning with a sad mood. Some of his priests asked him why he was in that mood? Heraclius was a foreteller and an astrologer. He replied, 'At night when I looked at the stars, I saw that the leader of those who practice circumcision had appeared (become the conqueror). Who are they who practice circumcision?' The people replied, 'Except the Jews nobody practices circumcision, so you should not be afraid of them (Jews). 'Just Issue orders to kill every Jew present in the country.' While they were discussing it, a messenger sent by the king of Ghassan to convey the news of Allah's Apostle to Heraclius was brought in. Having heard the news, he (Heraclius) ordered the people to go and see whether the messenger of Ghassan was circumcised. The people, after seeing him, told Heraclius that he was circumcised. Heraclius then asked him about the Arabs. The messenger replied, 'Arabs also practice circumcision.' (After hearing that) Heraclius remarked that sovereignty of the 'Arabs had appeared. Heraclius then wrote a letter to his friend in Rome who was as good as Heraclius in knowledge. Heraclius then left for Homs. (a town in Syrian and stayed there till he received the reply of his letter from his friend who agreed with him in his opinion about the emergence of the Prophet and the fact that he was a Prophet. On that Heraclius invited all the heads of the Byzantines to assemble in his palace at Homs. When they assembled, he ordered that all the doors of his palace be closed. Then he came out and said, 'O Byzantines! If success is your desire and if you seek right guidance and want your empire to remain then give a pledge of allegiance to this Prophet (i.e. embrace Islam).' (On hearing the views of Heraclius) the people ran towards the gates of the palace like onagers but found the doors closed. Heraclius realized their hatred towards Islam and when he lost the hope of their embracing Islam, he ordered that they should be brought back in audience. (When they returned) he said, 'What already said was just to test the strength of your conviction and I have seen it.' The people prostrated before him and became pleased with him, and this was the end of Heraclius's story (in connection with his faith). (Sahih Bukhari, Book #1, Hadith #6)

Look at the 2 kaafirs, GEORGE BUSH AND TONY BLAIR

-who are bigger liars than them?
-they lied about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction
-they wanted oil to stay a superpower,
-so they didn't care how they were remembered in history
-the kaafir, Abu Sufiyan, wouldn't lie because he cared about his character
-but Bush and Blair didn't care about how they were remembered
-a decent person cares about the impression he leaves on history


And forgive my father, verily he is of the erring; (Ash-Shu'ara 26:86)

Righteous children always pray for us

-if a pagan dies a pagan, we can't make du'a for them
-it's haraam to ask for your pagan father to be forgiven

It is not (proper) for the Prophet and those who believe to ask Allah's Forgiveness for the Mushrikûn (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) even though they be of kin, after it has become clear to them that they are the dwellers of the Fire (because they died in a state of disbelief). (At-Tawbah 9:113)

Abu Sa'id al-Khudri reported: Verily, the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: The least tormented of the inhabitants of the Fire would be he who would wear two shoes of Fire and his brain would boil on account of the heat of the shoes. Sahih Muslim 0412

All Muhammad (saws) could do was ask that he be given
-the lightest punishment possible


And disgrace me not on the Day when (all the creatures) will be resurrected; (Ash-Shu'ara 26:87)

The proud man in the dunya

-will be resurrected w/ the status of an ant
-we had hadith on this

A man w/ 2 wives who did not treat them equally, will be resurrected w/ 1/2 his body paralyzed

It was narrated from ‘Amr ibn Shu’ayb via his father and grandfather that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “On the Day of Resurrection, the arrogant will be gathered like ants in the form of men…. [Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2492 - Classed as Hasan by al-Albaani in Sahih al-Tirmidhi, 2025]

If you're a munafiqh w/ 2 faces, you'll be resurrected that way

1. pauper who was proud
2. old man who committed zina
3. A leader who lied to his people

Hadrat Abu Hurairah (r.a.) said: 'The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "There are three (types of) people whom Allah will neither speak to on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He purify them (i.e., from their sins), nor will He (even) look at them (with Mercy); and they will have a painful chastisement. These are: 1. An old man who commits fornication; 2.a king who is a great liar, and, 3.a poor man who is proud.''' Related by Muslim.

If you expose the sins of your Muslim brothers and sisters, you will be exposed on Judgment Day

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: The servant (who conceals) the faults of others in this world, Allah would conceal his faults on the Day of Resurrection. [Sahih Muslim, Book 32, Hadith 6267]

There was a person here who PM'd
-people to say Shaikh Faisal believed in Darwinism
-she was a black female from UK
-but the Pakistani woman married Shaikh and
-her community embraced him and protected him
-if that woman PM'd an admin, how many others were saying the same thing?
-she was immediately banned
-blacks are still trying to destroy Shaikh
-MADkhalis believe in Darwinism
-there's a masjid called MASJID UL TAWHEED [MADkhalis masjid]
-we believe in tawheed NOT that man came from monkeys
-we refute Darwinism daily
-she came in here w/ a dodgy nic, lying on Shaikh in Ramadan
-obviously, she wasn't fasting

Ibrahim begged that Allah not disgrace him on Judgment Day

So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it. (Az-Zalzalah 99:7)

And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it. (Az-Zalzalah 99:8)

At first, the dead will be resurrected in the clothes that they died in (Ibn Hibban-sahih), but will later be removed so that everybody during the assembly will be naked, uncircumcised and barefoot. Aishah r.a was wondering how is it that men and women AuthenticTauheed5: will not be ashamed of seeing each other being naked? Prophet replied that they are too afraid of what is coming that they don't even bother to look at each other (Bukhari). The first to be clothed on that day will Ibrahim (as) (Bukhari)
