Sayyidina ‘Ibrahim and the Fire Worshipper

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

[..] destroying the people of Lut. For the angels, he brought them food to eat. But the angels don’t eat. When they didn’t eat, he was not happy and a little bit afraid.

So he [Sayyidina ‘Ibrahim ‘alayhi s-salam] was very generous. He was looking for somebody to bring to eat with him. When having dinner, he liked to have guests to eat with him. That day, he couldn’t find anybody. Nobody came. He went out and found one man. He brought him saying, “Come, come. I want a guest to eat with me.” When he came inside – he didn’t look like a Muslim – he asked him, “Are you Muslim?” He said, “No.” He asked him, “What are you?” He said, “I am fire worshipper.” He told him, “Be a Muslim and I’ll have you as a guest here.” He said, “No. I don’t want to be Muslim.” He answered, “So I will not let you be here.” And he sent him away.

After that, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla sent him Jibra’il ‘alayhi s-salam. He said, “Why did you do this? Why didn’t you give food to this man?” He said, “He doesn’t believe in Allah ﷻ. He is Kafir. I asked him to be a servant for Allah ﷻ, but he said ‘No. I am a servant for fire only’.” Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla sent with Jibril, telling him, “This man is maybe 80 or 90 years old, or more. All these years, I know he’s not worshipping Me and I give him his provision. I feed him and I give him everything. Only for once, you didn’t do this. Quickly run after him and bring him to eat.” ‘Ibrahim ‘alayhi s-salam ran and found him in the end. He told him, “Come to eat.” He said, “Why did you fire me and throw me out? And why are you now coming asking me to come with you?” He said, “I was angry with you because you don’t believe in God. And God, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla said that He ﷻ fed you for 90 years and you didn’t worship Him ﷻ. Just once I didn’t feed you, He ﷻ got angry with me and told me to bring you again.” When he heard this he said, “You are right. I must be in your religion, to be Muslim.” And he became Muslim.

Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla doesn’t differentiate between His ﷻ servants. He ﷻ gives everybody provision, but what’s important is to be thankful to Him ﷻ, to give good things to people. This is the teaching of Allah ﷻ and Prophets.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
