salatu salam ala rasulillah URL early he was happy he Ramallah Russia he said that he was in the Emory looked at him in the Sani efco Holy abana attina for dunya Hassan, Hassan of another burner salaam aleikum wa Taala he forgot to welcome to the day. We are now in the night judge Subhanallah there are Milan that started not that long ago is passing by us fast while hamdulillah we asked a lot to accept from us all. Amira Bellamy today, we have the nine jurors that has the

00:00:36--> 00:00:37

that has

00:00:39--> 00:00:41

the beginning of sort of

00:00:42--> 00:01:10

the excuse me the last part of sort of RF surah, number seven, and the first part of surah and file that is Surah number eight and surah. Number nine, this is the two things that we have with us today sudo TL and file, we will cover in sha Allah in a couple of parts, they will cover it a little bit today, and we'll cover a little bit tomorrow, but I'm actually going to jump between the Jews when it comes to sudo tool and file because

00:01:11--> 00:01:25

so as you will see sort of unfold has many tangents and those tangents are very, very powerful and very beautiful. I mean, I don't know what this is. So, so we add, Alright, there we are, let us go to the Jews there

00:01:27--> 00:02:22

is number nine. Now, as you will see from just number nine here, that in the Jews in the very beginning of it. Alas pantalla is speaking about the people of schreib the arrogant leaders of his people said sure I we will expel you. Now, to be able to understand what happened we kind of have to backtrack a little bit and go back to see what is it that Dr. Allison was saying that caused that kind of reaction. Let's actually backtrack and go back to the beginning of the part that mentioned the story of schreib that is either number 85 m that I have which is in the previous years, which is not a problem for us but we will look at it. And number 85 right here which is in which Allah says

00:02:23--> 00:03:11

Allah Medina affoltern Shriver, 2 million we sent their brother sure him. He said, Oh my people worship God. Jaco Marabou de la hum Allah Camila enviro, as you've seen, the prophets all in the sutras of this in the ayat of the surah. They all begin their, their dialogue with their people by saying, Oh, my people worship God, you have no God, but him and this repetition in the Quran is intentional, because Allah wants us to realize that all prophets said the same thing. Every Prophet came with the same message, all of them called people to the worship of Allah alone, irrespective of when they lived, irrespective of what language they spoke, irrespective of which area they were,

00:03:11--> 00:03:56

which they lived in, or where they were born in. It doesn't matter. They all said the same thing and the unity of the message across time, throughout time, throughout civilizations. That is the beautiful part of our religion. all humanity was sent this message, and it doesn't matter which person followed, which prophet as long as they followed their prophet and said, Yes, we worship Allah alone. We are all brothers and sisters and faith, across time, parallel, beautiful, but not just that. Also, every prophet said the same thing. They're all bringing the same message, which is worshiping Allah, there is no other deity but him. A clear design has indeed come to you from your

00:03:56--> 00:04:14

Lord. So give full measure and full weight and do not deliver short for Ofu. Kayla will Miss Anna waratah, Hassan associate of whom you see Dr. Ella salam, right, immediately after speaking about worshiping Allah alone, talks about

00:04:15--> 00:04:57

being honest, in business dealings, and this goes hand in hand with a person's belief. And also it tells us tribalism, or the rule of people who are religious is not just to do something that is religious, it is to stop evil, wherever evil may be. This is an evil thing that happened in the marketplaces. I'm sure everyone has somewhere to stop that because it was something that was evil, and it harmed everybody. All people were harmed by it, especially the underprivileged, and travelers that I mentioned that and that is for us the example was to see to fill out the bar that is lucky How do not corrupt the land after it has been set in order. This is for your own good if you are

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

true believers while at the root

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

serat do not lie in ambush on every pathway, threatening people barring those who believe from the way of God seeking to make it appear crooked, don't physically

00:05:13--> 00:05:46

don't physically intimidate people who want to believe. Don't threaten them physically. don't borrow them from worshipping Allah, let the people choose. Let the people choose Why must you intimidate people with force? Why must you stop people who are trying to follow Allah and His Messenger, this is an important thing tribalism is saying, as you can see, he's not the one in the position of power. They are, they are the ones who are in power and in control, but he still are they serve them,

00:05:47--> 00:06:33

you know, makes his case makes his points. And even if those points are met with resistance, he is going to make them. And the interesting thing also is that don't borrow from the people. Or don't, don't borrow people from the way of Allah, the Sedona and Sevilla. This is important we shouldn't be people or stopping others from good. This is like the way we are we should be as believers, there's something good happening, we should let it happen. Even if it's not from us, even if for example, you don't fully, like endorse it. But if it is something good, let it be, at least don't be the person who stops someone from going and doing and, and being in a good environment, participating in

00:06:33--> 00:06:53

good Don't be that person. That is what you're able to assign says that's what actually we should all be doing to in our lives. Don't stop people from being from doing good. Don't discredit people who do good. Let the people be, let them be and just focus on your own self, be the light Allah.

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

He says

00:06:59--> 00:07:48

that the response of the people of Sharia, the mela, this is the word that's very interesting. That will come again and again, in this surah. It comes in the story of Shoreham, it came in the story of No, it came in the story of Lou and of who the cableless story of salia. It came in the story of Luth, Alma, Alma, Alma, the leaders, the chiefs, those who literally Mullah means to be full, they are full, in the sense that they are full of power and authority. That's who al-mulla are not just people who are rich, necessarily, not just people because there's like one king, but these are people who have power and authority, and they have concentrated and thus they are able to influence

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

society.

00:07:50--> 00:07:55

This is what who Allah calls the leaders, the mother and you can see, you know, like,

00:07:57--> 00:08:00

how the implication of this are severe

00:08:01--> 00:08:15

today, and mela oftentimes, are people who are extremely rich, and they have a controlling interest in business, even if no one knows who they are. Their influence from behind the scene.

00:08:16--> 00:08:43

affects policy. And in my life today are people who are influencers on social media is the person who doesn't, you know, like has no real qualification, but because of the way they look, because they have gained some, some fame. They become extremely, extremely influential. And this is a very strange thing. But this phenomena allows popular highlights Alan Miller, these are the people who the others follow.

00:08:44--> 00:09:13

And that's something we should understand. Now I am 88 says the arrogant leaders of shortwave of his people said sure he will expel you and your fellow believers from our town unless you return to our faith. Now they are trying to physically threaten their existence. He says should even if we tested like even if you don't like the fact that we don't like your religion, even then you will force us to become who we don't want to be.

00:09:15--> 00:10:00

This continues, this conversation continues. They say that look, we will be inventing allies against Allah. If we return to your your faith after God had delivered us from it. It is not for us to return to it unless God our Lord, so willed. He was here out of buena coalition Allah our Lord encompasses all things in his knowledge. We have put our trust in our Lord, Allah Allah He talkin robina Our Lord, if the vein and our inner coalminer will help expose the truth between us and our people want the high roll fatty hain You are the best of those who judges. So so panela this is the thing they're like, Look, you're gonna

00:10:00--> 00:10:50

forces will threaten us, we're not going to go back to that, we will put our trust in our in our Lord. And we will, you know, make dua, and we will be patient in the face of this difficult situation that we are in. This is a very important principle that we will see in the next sutras that patience and strength is required before victory. Okay, this is what we'll see in the story of Musa around. This is what we'll see in the story or in the in social and fun, patience and strength is required. Before victory of a law comes, you have to be a person or a nation that is patient, and a nation that is strong. And then and only then does Allah victory come. So they are demonstrating

00:10:50--> 00:10:56

that strength, even though physically they don't have the influence, or the power to stand up. Now.

00:10:59--> 00:11:48

For us, that term will refer to, for us bahuvida mgic mean there upon an earthquake, or took them and morning found them lying, fattened in their homes. This was their punishment, it was a, like, the last part was divine punishment sent to them in this world, alladhina camdeboo schreiben elfia, because those who had denied shortly became as if though they had never lived there. Those who denied schreib were themselves the losers. This is the moral This is how all the stories of the prophets in the Quran, and the Prophet, with the exception of like Isa and Ibrahim and whatnot, but like the prophets that I mentioned here, know, who saw lay sure a lot that Allah sends them to the

00:11:48--> 00:12:28

people, the people reject them. And then Allah sends his punishment upon the people who rejected them. And at the end of the day, these the prophets are victorious. And this is a last message to the prophets of Salaam, that you'll be patient, you will be victorious as well, just like these other prophets were victorious. And it's a message for all of us as well, that look, it's not always things always don't happen right away, you have to take, we have to be patient, and allas victory will come out the difference that as we will see, a Lost Planet, Allah no longer punishes people or destroys the enemies of a prophet through a divine punishment. The last of that instance would be

00:12:28--> 00:13:09

Musa alayhis salam, and for our after that there is no more after that the believers have to fight in the cause of God have to fight in defense of their faith. And through their hands, Allah victory comes and that's actually the next Surah Surah and file. That's where that comes. If so, this is something that allows Pamela highlights and makes clear that this is how things were in the past. Allah has always had helped his prophets, so be patient, but now the help of Allah to his prophets and the cause of the law has to be by with through the hands of the believers, and not by a divine punishment descending from the sky.

00:13:11--> 00:13:57

Low Shriver SLM is really saddened by this demise of his people. He says, My people I delivered my lords messages to you, and I gave you sincere advice. So why should I agree for people who refuse to believe okay for us, Allah Omen caffeine, I did my job. You didn't listen? How do you expect me to have sympathy for you? Some important lessons and commentary on the stories of profits? There's a lot of destruction here. So behind Allah, so Allah, Allah mentions that look, this is done mama Santa Maria de Mina V in Illa, Allah Allah will, Eva da Allah, Allah whom you'll borrow. Whenever we send a prophet to a town, we afflicted its people with suffering and adversity. So they may humble

00:13:57--> 00:14:41

themselves before God, ie tough times that Allah sends upon people, it's there to break their arrogance, it's there to break their you know, they bring them out of their comfort zone. And that is what Allah spotless says about these people. Yet a lot of these people don't take heat from these from the from, from the situation and he mentioned this about us as well. That we are not human that either have been either not do not either been Aqua de la Lomi of your own, we will make them taste the smaller punishment before the larger punishment. Smaller punishment here is the ups and downs of life. The larger punishment, of course, is in the in the next life. Unless my boss says that is

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

done. Lala whom you're your own, perhaps they will change their ways, perhaps they will return back to us to a lost part of Allah, the idea being that the difficulties of life that Allah sends upon us, tough times, often is done to remind us of to humble us to

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

Give us a dose of humility as we may turn back to our last panel Tyler. Okay. Also, he says there's a significant lesson in these in these cities is number 100. Our DD Latina Arizona hold'em embody Nia Alona Sha, Allah subhanahu ambito Novi him or not to be him for him as well as that not guide the people who inherit the land from former people, that we can punish them for their sins, if we will, and seal up their hearts so that they will not be able to lend an ear to the words of guidance is very important question that allow us it's a hypothetical question. Like, is it not enough for you to hear about and see what Allah had done to people who disbelieved? Is that not enough of a

00:15:47--> 00:16:39

lesson is that not enough of a of a sign for you to take heed? And if a person continues to reject the signs of Allah continues to ignore them, then Allah says will not allow our love Hulu beam, we will seal up their hearts. So then there is the words of guidance, Moon enter the ears and won't reach the hearts. That is a very dangerous situation, living in a state almost have an extended heedlessness or extended sinfulness causes that and that's a scary reality Allah is warning us against. Then he goes on to Musa and Tara Moosa in an s&m story is mentioned in two parts Musa and frown when Messiah Manny's right okay, and now what's interesting about Musa alayhis salam is that

00:16:39--> 00:17:03

all of the prophets before no good solid sure I look these five together are about half Jews and Muslims and Islam by himself is about half of Jews Masha Allah that tells you the story of Busan Islam is so much more mentioned and so much more emphasized in the Quran. He is the most frequently mentioned prophet in the Quran. Allah Allah says about him was

00:17:04--> 00:17:29

was thrown out to clean up see eye to alika Mahabharata mini I have tossed my love at you, meaning a lot loved musala so I'm very much and I have prepared you for myself was fanatical enough see, so Subhanallah his life is mentioned in a lot of detail in Surah 28 we'll see his life as a baby game. And then we will see in his his world 28 his life as a young man.

00:17:30--> 00:18:18

In this era, we're seeing him after he is a full grown man like he is returning to his people to free them from slavery. And then what happens after he frees them from slavery. So all over the place in the Quran, Musa Psalms, whole life is mentioned and it's a beautiful story because there's so many lessons for us in that here is where it starts. Whomever Aslam embody him Musa pietila Allah for Allah, Allah He for Allah movia fundal k for Ghana, Dean and after them we said Moses with our signs to the Pharaoh and his chiefs and again, mela right remember the pharaoh is the leader he is the man is the one who would claim to be God himself. Okay. But the mela are just as important the

00:18:18--> 00:18:33

people have power and influence the people who shape policy the people who others than the not the the commoners follow that is lm Allah. Allah mentions them because they are very critical in this story.

00:18:35--> 00:19:10

As they are in all stories, they willfully rejected them. Consider the end of the evildoers in that case, the fairground and his cheeps follow Musayev around in the Rasulo Mirabile, alameen masala Sam said Pharaoh I am a messenger from the Lord of the universe. And I am a true messenger happy con Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah He is duty bound to say nothing about God but the truth. Okay. And I have brought to you a clear sign from your Lord then let the children of Israel go with me for others say my bunnies are Ill let my people go. Okay.

00:19:12--> 00:19:42

Caller in Quinta GTV is in fact the behind contaminate saw the pin Pharaoh said if you have come with a sign then produce it but what's your evidence? What's your what's your sign Oh Musa file for our saw over either here or abandoned moving it through down his staff and suddenly unmistakeably, it appeared as a serpent as a snake. And he drew forth his hand and it appeared shining white, the beholders he put it in his armpit and drew it out and it was like you know, like a radiant.

00:19:44--> 00:20:00

You know, it was radiant and giving off light. You know, it was something that was truly spectacular and miraculous. Now that chiefs of the pharaoh again, as a matter remember, they're the people who shape the the

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

way people do things what people think, who they follow. And in this case for our own himself is going to be influenced by these people. The Chiefs of the pharaoh say, said, this is more surely a skillful magician. He wants, he seeks to drive you and you he seeks to drive you out from your land. The Pharaoh said, What do you advise mother Maroon? They said, let him and his brother wait a while, and send into the city summoners people to gather who who bring every skilful magician to you? And let's have a battle of magic. You know, he,

00:20:44--> 00:21:25

let's bring our magicians and let him bring his magic and let's see what who wins. Okay, now the magicians came to the Pharaoh. And they asked Shall we have a reward if he should prevail? Because they wanted money? for them? There was no like, they were like hard hired mercenaries are not doing it for like a cause. They're doing it for for financial gains. If an Allen says yes, you will have money, and you will also become Elmo. carabin you will be close to me, I'll give you significance, you will become important people just maybe power is even more, you know, important to people than money. And oftentimes, you know, and this is what I was offering. He offered them both. I'll give

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

you money, I'll give you power and influence.

00:21:28--> 00:22:04

Most they said Musa Moses, will you first throw? Or shall we? He said, Why don't you throw first? Okay. All right. Now these people were skilled and they were powerful magician. So when they made their cast, they'd be which the eyes of the people and struck them with all four they showed a great feat of magic was starhub boom, actually, this word right here struck them with all the frighten the people near frighten them. People were like, scared and petrified at this show of magic. Now.

00:22:06--> 00:22:46

musalla Islam in other parts of the Quran was also fearing a little bit, you know, scared, because he's a human being. That's what human beings do. Like we fear we have emotions, right? And this is the emotion that musala Islam was feeling at that point. And Who wouldn't? You are one man against this massive collection of, of magicians, and they're all hired by the tyrant. You are going up against literally the pharaoh who wouldn't be scared, it will be inhuman not to be scared. So he felt a little scared but then Allah was there to support him and inspire him and grant him the the the the

00:22:48--> 00:23:34

grant him the piece that he needed to proceed with his mission. He said throw down your staff oh hi nyla Musa and LPR Soc. And this is what a lot does. He always is there in our moments of of desperation, moments of weakness, Allah will be there with us. He's always there with the prophets. He's always been there with the prophets he will always be there with us as well. And see it's not like a problem to feel insecure sometimes or feel afraid it's okay. The profits even felt afraid. But the key is to believe a loss help is there and know it's coming. And when that is the case allows help. 100% does come throw down your staff and immediately it swallowed up their false

00:23:34--> 00:23:45

devices. Immediately this now that the magic trick was exposed and musala salaams serpent was a was a real serpent because it was a real man. It was a real miracle.

00:23:47--> 00:24:37

For Julio una Lika, Juan Kala Mousavi. Now the Pharaoh and his men were defeated. And they were humiliated. This was a humiliating defeat at the hands of most at the hands of Muslim Islam because they thought they could outdo him. But there was an unexpected turn to the story. For oltenia Sahara to Sajid in the sorceress prostrated themselves, saying, Man Nabila balada mean we believe in the Lord of the universe, the Lord of Moses and Aaron, Allahu Akbar, what happened there? The Magicians realized this is no magic. The Magicians were like this is a true miracle. This is a prophet. And this What just happened? It's not doable by a man this is 100% a, an inspiration from God Himself.

00:24:37--> 00:24:59

So immediately these magicians accepted musala salam accepted Islam and declared their feet so panela How amazing how amazing is a lot help that not only did he humiliate the Pharaoh, but these people who were against Musa turned into his allies, for our own said, You are How dare you believe

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

him before I have given you permission, look at the tyranny. How dare you believe? How dare you think before I tell you what to think. He says, this is indeed the plot which you have devised in the city in order to drive its people out. But soon you'll know I am going to chop up your hands and your feet on alternate sides. And then I'll crucify y'all. I'm going to punish you in a way that is so painful even reading it hurts. Okay?

00:25:27--> 00:25:40

Look at the the courage that a man is supposed to give the courage, faith is supposed to give to a person. Because now when you're afraid of Allah, you are not afraid of the consequences of what people do to you.

00:25:41--> 00:26:19

Because you know, Allah subhanaw taala? Is the end going to take care of you? What do they say? They say, we will surely return to our Lord, okay, you're gonna kill us. Guess what? We're going to all go back to our Lord, and what you're going to do to us, you will only punish us because we saw the signs of our Lord. We saw the signs of our Lord and we accepted and you didn't and that's why you're mad. And that's what you're punishing us for. They may do our again our Lord poor patients upon us and cause us to die in a state of submission to you look at the man of these amazing magicians. They are now making this amazing Dora. Notice the people of shuraim they were making their own right

00:26:19--> 00:26:39

before they were, you know, put into a difficult situation here musala salams magicians are his The Magicians who followed him, they know they're going to be in a lot of trouble. They're making Dora because Dora is the way we seek Allah's help. Dora is where we find our our solace. Okay, now

00:26:40--> 00:26:49

that the chiefs, on the other hand, were like, hey, you're going to kill these magicians, they won't do anything. Moses is still around. So do something about that.

00:26:51--> 00:27:37

What we're going to do now for our couldn't go after Moosa. And there were some reasons for that. Reason number one is actually musasa grew up in the house of the Pharaoh. So there was, you know, like, like, it's, it would be strange for the pharaoh to attack and go after Musab because it will be it looked bad on him. This was a person, a child you raised and now all of a sudden you're trying to kill him. Okay, and he hasn't done anything to you. Why are you killing him? Okay, so people would turn on him. But also musallam was getting, you know, influential, and killing an influential person sometimes only you know, like, Stokes, the fire more only riles up the revolution more. Okay.

00:27:37--> 00:28:17

So for our own did something extremely nasty but very clever. He says I'm going to punish Moosa by punishing his people suddenly got to a home when they're stuck in his home, we shall kill their male children, and spare only the females. And we have complete power over them, they can do anything can be they won't be able to stop us. Now think about that. This is a very painful thing for musala Sam's experience, to see his people suffer because of him. That That hurts. That really hurts. That's what the people have raised it to the profit center. They were like, you know what, we can really hurt the profit because if we do, there'll be a war. His family will fight all of us and all

00:28:17--> 00:28:59

of us will die. No one's willing to, like be spared from this. So what did they do? They started to torture Bella, they start to torture sohaib they start to torture about the week Sahaba and that would hurt the Prophet. And that is how they got to the Prophet Salaam by hurting his companions. So this is the same thing the Pharaoh was doing here as well. musala salam says patience and strength is required before victory. He says, My people turn to God for help and be patient is sinobaler. He was biru. In under the law, the earth belongs to Allah don't despair. Right now we're under oppression of the Federation. But the earth is a laws Allah will give us you know, a way out. He

00:28:59--> 00:29:29

gives it to those of his servants whom he chooses, and the futures belongs to the God fearing He's like, don't worry right now we're in trouble, but the future is ours. So man, Allah, it takes a lot of time and a lot of conviction to be this optimistic in the face of such difficulty. Okay. Now, alas, Mangala actually before he said the the people before last month to give victory to Bani Israel, he

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

would send punishment of around cave and the punishment of your own would be to remind him that he is a mere mortal, and a hope that lead you know, maybe he'll understand. Maybe you let Vanessa go. What does the law say we afflicted Pharaohs, people with shortages of food and famine. So they might take heed again Lala homea that karoun tough times the break their arrogance. Maybe they'll learn some humility, learn a lesson and the field and let

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

Musa and his people go, Okay, so what was it that Allah Allah did last pantalla would,

00:30:09--> 00:30:56

you know put them in difficulty and when the evil would come upon them, they will blame Moosa for it. And they will try to say most Moses, Moses, this is because of you. They would say mattina be human, I didn't notice harana we have Samana Lockerbie, meaning, whatever it is, whatever miracles you work to be what be which us with, we will not believe in you. They're like we're not believing in you, most Messiah Do whatever you want, that Allah sends upon them for our son, I lay him to fun. The storm. What a jet odd, the Locust number two, while common the lice, the locusts that just surrounded them and eat up their crops, lice infecting all of them was the fire they are the frogs

00:30:56--> 00:31:40

that were reading from the sky or appearing out of everywhere, what them and blood their water turned into blood, their wells turn into blood. I asked him for solid five signs like this clear signs, miraculous signs, not something that's like an occurrence of, you know, like, nature, it is a miracle that breaks the laws of nature, and just want to send this to them one after the other one after the other. So maybe they will learn some humility for stuck baru, but they were steeped in arrogance. And that's because they were a criminal people. What can coma moody mean? This is the thing, a person who was an arrogant person, or a, you know people who are arrogant people, but they

00:31:40--> 00:31:50

refuse to see the flaws in themselves. They believe they're right, it doesn't matter what happens. That is a sign of extremely arrogant, extremely wretched person. And that's what these people were.

00:31:51--> 00:32:07

And what's even more wretched is how their attitude was when something bad would happen. They're like hey, Musa, please help. I don't pray to your Lord, that he takes this away from us. But then when he would take and then it will say Lancashire

00:32:08--> 00:32:54

don't mean Anelka. When a nurse in America when he saw you, if you remove this from this plague from us, we will surely believe in you and let the children Israel go with you Just please remove this we're suffering for lamarca, Chef nanomotors. But whenever he we remove the the evil from them, the playing from them, giving them time to make good on their promise, they would break their word, a sign of a wretched people, people who are just evil, they are steeped in arrogance can see what the wrong that the do. breaking their promises, can keep their words lying through their teeth. These are symptoms of arrogance of terrible character of a of a wicked person, not a righteous person. And

00:32:54--> 00:33:24

that is what lots describes about most about for our own and his people. That's how they work. Now this is should be pause for us. Like how many of these characteristics do we have? Like if someone points out to us something that we did wrong? Do we accept the mistake or do we arrogantly stubbornly refuse? How is it that we like do we make and keep our promises? And we spoke about keeping commitments and sort of denying that so number five, right? How is it? Like how

00:33:25--> 00:33:52

are people who keep our word or not? Are the people who can make promises and keep them or not? These are questions looking at health around and as people were, and that's because Can you call me God mean that says sign the people who are inclined to sin who are spiritually criminal, as dangerous states spiritually being a criminal, that is a tough, you know, place to you know, to to recover from.

00:33:53--> 00:34:12

And then of course, a lot smarter gives victory to Bani Israel he saves them a lot of other harmful yam extracted retribution and drown them in the sea and gave the people who are weak Oh retinal Toma Latina can who saw the iPhone fell out.

00:34:14--> 00:34:39

The people who were considered you still dying for now methodical out do mareeba the people considered weak across the world. We gave them the control over the land which we had blessed, the most valuable place on earth we gave them that at that time, of course, despite the fact they were considered to be extremely weak and

00:34:40--> 00:34:55

oppressed. And that is a last way he can lift a people up out of, you know, very, very oppressed situations and make them you know, powerful and strong.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

What dumb Afghani Maduro because not Allah

00:35:00--> 00:35:46

Is that ideal? That's the good. Your Lord's good promise to the children of Israel was fulfilled Bhima sabato because of their patients. You notice here how Bani Israel is being praised here, because of their patience allows praising them. They remain patient. They stood for rounds, threats, they will stood his killings. They were there. This they held their ground until last month I rescued them. But Amanda McCann is not over our como Mama, can we audition and destroy all that the Pharaoh and his people have built and all that they had raised? Hi. So Hello, this is for us a lesson that patience. Victory comes through patience, strength and patience is required before

00:35:46--> 00:36:28

victory. And this is again how truth and falsehood are differentiated. This is the theme of the sutra out here is a battle of good and evil, truth and falsehood. And how truth eventually triumphs as long as the people the truth are patient and strong long enough. Now Subhanallah you may think bunnies Rottweiler, like super awesome, well, but he's like you had many pathetic things that they did. And now here in lies that complex Battle of truth and falsehood, but these are Illa followers are Muslim. They are you know, people who've they follow the Prophet Musa their people and agenda right because they're following their prophet. They're worshipping Allah right? These are people who

00:36:28--> 00:36:34

will consider to be people who've attained to attain salvation. Yet there these are people who would do

00:36:35--> 00:37:14

like just unforgivable sin after unforgivable sin, have a terrible attitude from start to finish with their profit. And this is a complex Battle of Truth and Falsehood that battle between Muslims around very clear who's right and very clear who's wrong. But now here are people who are believers. That's a you know, how do you figure out who's right and who's wrong? That is the next part of this story, a very fascinating part. I had number 130 and Allah size was I was nappy bunny. So not enough for a toe Allah comida Hakuna Allah snam illa home benissa eels pathetic behavior. What did they do?

00:37:15--> 00:37:42

A la brought them from across the sea. They came upon the people who were devoted to their idols of people who are sitting with their idols worshipping their idols. What does when Israel say? They say Moses, give us a God just like the gods that these people have a jar Lana, Illa Han Kamara. lahoma Alia a Moses this looks nice. They have idols, can we get some idols to ridiculous?

00:37:43--> 00:37:49

You were just saved by Allah. You were just saved by Allah and now you want to worship a rock and a stone

00:37:50--> 00:38:31

and musala sam just replies in Kuhn Coleman. alone You are indeed an ignorant people. You don't like do not understand. In the heart of Allah in Bhutan Burma home fee well belted Oh my God, we are alone. These are people they are what they're engaged in is doomed to destruction. And their works are in vain. The stuff is just has no power, no mind. It doesn't mean anything. So panela but this is what would their request was so musala Islam rebukes them. It's very sad to see that he had to repeat them. Now. musala Islam goes to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala. Okay, that's a beautiful passage. musala Islam goes.

00:38:33--> 00:39:00

By the way before he goes, he actually reminds them he says, Look, how could you worship anything other than Allah when he has chosen you? He saved you. Right? Remember all this favors? Then? He says, Allah has musalla Islam was a law had tasked him to come and see him. Well I've now musasa Latina Latina what, what I'm not happy I should watch I'm not happy I should. But then mamiko to Robbie, he arbaeen Elena.

00:39:02--> 00:39:43

we appoint appointed 30 nights for Moses then added 10 more. The term said by his Lord was fulfilled in 40 nights. Messiah Sam is going to meet his Lord. He says to his brother Harun. Aaron, take my place among the people act rightly, don't follow the way of those who spread corruption. This is important sometimes you got to delegate. Okay, so musasa is delegating the task of leading when Israel to a trusted individual, Harun, hey, this is great. Now Messiah son goes to meet Allah. Allah, what can nama hora boo and his Lord spoke to him and that's an amazing thing. That is something that was special for most Allah Salaam that I last spoke directly to him, gave him

00:39:43--> 00:40:00

revelation directly through his speech without like a angel in between as an intermediary. Now musalla some requests something he says to Allah, He says that I'll be areni unblock My Lord, show yourself to me so that I'm

00:40:00--> 00:40:45

Look at you, not so that not because he doesn't believe but now he want his, his love for Allah is so strong, his love for Allah. Allah is so deep after hearing Allah, He wants to see Allah to come to, to, you know, fulfill his love for Allah Papa he wants to look at last month he says to him lengthen you can see me in this world. But look at the mountains. This is going to be a demonstration for you how it's how it's impossible for you to perceive me in this world. Look at the mountain. And if the mountain I am going to reveal myself to this mountain, if it remains in its place, then only you can see me. But then as his Lord manifested Himself to the mountain and

00:40:45--> 00:41:20

displayed himself to the mountain gyla who that it broke, he broke it into pieces and musalla some fell unconscious. When he recovered. He said some Hanukkah Glory to you, Allah, I turned to you. And I'm the first to believe what Silas lamb was asking this out of love, not because of doubt, Allah says in the Sofitel garland nasi Moses, I have chosen you of all of mankind. I'm chosen you, Moses, you are my chosen one. I've chosen you for my message. And through my words, you have the You are the one who I speak to.

00:41:22--> 00:41:56

For whom it to welcome in and check it in, hold fast to what has given you and be among the Grateful so panela masala Salaam was a chosen one of the last pantalla The one who lost loved the one who lost path Allah spoke to and he loved a lost power immensely. And that is perhaps one reason why he's mentioned so much in the Quran because Allah loves them so much that he mentioned them again and again in the end. Now, after this Allah mentioned gave gave him the Torah, and he gave it to them, gave it to him in on the tablets, he wrote it, it was written for him, and

00:41:57--> 00:42:09

it was something that he was supposed to bring to the people now Subhana Allah musala salam as he's meeting his Lord, bunnies, eels pathetic behavior number two, and number 148.

00:42:10--> 00:42:48

But tada Oh, Masai Mara, the human Halim agent and Jessica Lowe, who are in his absence, the people of Moses meet a calf from their ornaments and image when made that made eloping sound a blowing sound. could they not see that it did not speak to them or guide them in any way they took to worshiping it, and they were evildoers? So panela this was as Musa al Salaam is speaking to Allah, Allah receiving divine revelation that will guide them, you know, to the right path. These people are worshipping a calf, along with Stein, and this is something that

00:42:50--> 00:43:29

that they did, and as we'll see in Surah, number 22, a baja that when Harlan Ellison wanted to start stop them. They threatened him physically. Okay, now musala sam comes back and he is angry. moussaka. Sam returns Well, Mr. Raja musala called me on one asifa he was angry and he was really sad. And this is a very difficult emotion and you're angry and sad. you're disappointed because you've been betrayed, betrayed, and you're angry because you've been betrayed both things. He said, what an awful sin you have committed in my absence, meet some of the minimum body is like the worst thing you could do is to worship somebody besides a lot. And that's what you did in my absence.

00:43:30--> 00:44:11

Okay, he was so angry. What Allah, Allah He threw down the tablets, because sometimes in anger, we do these things. He was so angry. The tablets that he received from a law that has a revolutionary through them now. Okay, what are the bureaucracy as he drew it, he grabbed his brother by the head, and another IRA grabbed him by his beard and pulled him right. delegation. Sometimes doesn't work. He delegated it to huddle and it didn't really work. Okay, he's asking him what happened? How'd you let these people worship a calf? How are they worshipping idols? how long this I've said you have an own son of my mother my brother stop it right the people oppressed me in the almost on the iPhone

00:44:11--> 00:44:20

they made me weak they ganged up on me What can we up to new nanny and they almost killed me but Otto Schmidt Vila de so don't give

00:44:22--> 00:44:59

the my enemies cause to gloat over me or don't let our enemies celebrate. By you know, seeing us fight while at a journeyman call me Valentin and don't count me among those who are wrongdoers isn't Look, I didn't do this. I stopped them they ganged up on me. If we are fighting, these people will celebrate the ones who are the wrongdoers, and this is key men the righteous starter like quibble and fight that actually makes the people who are wicked, it makes them happy to see the righteous, quibbling and fighting. So he says don't do that. And this is a lot of wisdom from huddling and Islam that he's demonstrating here.

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

So Pinilla

00:45:04--> 00:45:23

musasa makes dar to Allah, Allah forgive me and my brother and allow us to be admitted to your mercy and you are the one who has who is the Most Merciful of those who are merciful. Okay? Now he regroups himself, he makes Dora he in a way also apologized to his brother for rashly treating him in this manner.

00:45:25--> 00:46:05

The one of the things to notice here, by the way, is Haruna. Salam in the Bible is mentioned as if he was worshipping the calf himself, like he joined the worship of the calf. That is blasphemous, we don't accept that in any way, shape, or form. And the Quran multiple times actually makes this point. I don't know, the Psalms tried to stop them, but they ganged up on him and try to, you know, threaten to even kill him. Because he is a prophet of Allah. It's not befitting to, for a person, a normal person to worship, other than Allah for a prophet, it's impossible. And how to Islam, of course, is the furtherest. From that, like all prophets, so the Quran actually makes it a clear

00:46:05--> 00:46:29

point to correct what's in the Bible. And that is a beautiful thing that Allah does when it comes to the stories of the prophets to point out and correct the mistakes that were incorporated in the Bible, by the scribes, by mistake or intentionally. Now, the muzzle SLM was of course, the people who

00:46:31--> 00:46:41

did this war, their punishment was that they were executed. This was their punishment, okay? But eventually, Allah says, Well, I'm masaka musala.

00:46:43--> 00:47:17

When anger when his anger subsided, Moses took up the tablets, upon which was inscribed a pledge of guidance and mercy for those who fear the Lord. Okay. And this is again shows you the emotions that a person feels musasa felt fear, and he was up against the odds was that Assam felt angry, and sad when he was betrayed musasa now his anger has subsided, these are human emotions. And that's something the Quran teaches us to be like, understand how our emotions are, so we can better deal with them. And the example the prophets is a great example of how

00:47:18--> 00:47:45

they're, you know, going through these, this rollercoaster of emotions and managing them to the best of their ability, with Allah help with the help of Dora. Now musala salam, then take some people to apologize to Allah 70 people he takes with him to make a apology to Allah sparkler for what they had done. As they went to that to make their apology.

00:47:48--> 00:48:09

They were, you know, they had asked musallam we want to see God adding a la Jara just like you speak to God. We want to see him and speak to him as well. So Allah Allah took their lives are lost. patola was angry at that. That that transgression musala Sam says, A toliko Nabil MacFarlane sofa, Amina, oh,

00:48:11--> 00:48:55

Lord, would you destroy us for the deeds of the foolish amongst us? This is your trial. And, you know, forgive us and have mercy on us. Then those people were brought back to life. And they asked for Allah's forgiveness. As they were asking for forgiveness in this meeting of the 70 people and who started somebody a law that's when Allah mentions to them about the prophets of Allah and Medina fw nebraskaland de Miel de jejunal, whom October in October, it will In June, the prophet son was told to them from that point, right now you have Musa eventually the last prophet will come who is Mohammed Salaam Salaam nebby. Meet the unlettered prophet. And this is an amazing thing that Quran

00:48:55--> 00:49:04

mentions at this point that bunnies are evil knew all along about the Prophet son, yet they chose to

00:49:05--> 00:49:49

hide it or fabricate the mention of the prophecies of them in their scriptures. And when he finally arrived, they chose to reject Him. So last Sunday, okay, now musallam not all of them were bad. Again, the Quran is not just a book that you know, paints everybody with the same brush women, all the Musoma, Tanya Luna will have to be alone. There were a group of people amongst the people of Moses, who guide with the truth and act justly in accordance with it. There are those who lived the promise of the Torah. They're the ones who were repentance was sincere. They lived with it, they died with it. And they kept practicing the faith of Moses until the prophets some came. And when

00:49:49--> 00:49:57

they saw the profit, they accepted the profit because they were truthfully believers in musallam. And in the true revelation that was given to him.

00:49:59--> 00:49:59

Last month, I mentioned

00:50:00--> 00:50:43

About the Sabbath was Alhamdulillah, Korea talathi, Canada, little Baja, number 166 ask them about the town, which was by the sea, and what we felt its people when they broke the Sabbath on the on their Sabbath Saturday, the fish came to them near the surface. But on weekdays, the fish would not come near them. Thus we tried them because of their disobedience. This was a test from our last pantalla. David, they're not supposed to fish, the fish would just come and be like, take me Take me here. And the day that they're supposed to not fish for the day that this was the fish, there is no fish in the sea, and they are now struggling. But that was a trial Bhima can do your support because

00:50:43--> 00:50:57

of their disobedience, disobedience and collective sins does bring a lack of blessings. And that's what is highlighted in the plan again and again. Now, it's all at moto min home.

00:50:58--> 00:51:36

You know, there are some people who said, Why do you admonish people that Allah is going to destroy or afflict with a severe punishment, they answered in order to be free from blame before your Lord, and that they may fear him what happened here, the people have of the Sabbath, what they will do is that they would leave their nets on on Friday, and say, Okay, we're not fishing on Saturday, but their nets would catch, catch the fish on Saturday, and be like, hey, see, we're not fishing, but our nets are just catching fish, you know, by themselves. And then on Sunday, they'll go and just grab their fish, and you know, benefit, but that was breaking the law of the Sabbath. Now, there

00:51:36--> 00:52:20

were people who were good people in that community. They said to these fishermen, what you're doing is wrong. Stop it. As they were telling them that this is wrong. The another group of people, the onlookers will tell these, these good Samaritans, why are you even bothering? Why would you bother telling these people, they're not going to listen? And Allah is going to destroy them? Why would you bother trying to change their ways? The answer is amazing. Their answer is my Virata. In Arabic, Allah, Allah homea takuan, in order to be free from bleeding before your Lord, to tell a lot, although we did our part, our job was to tell them, we told them, so we are not held accountable for

00:52:20--> 00:52:36

their mistakes. And also, maybe someone will listen, you don't know for a fact that these people won't listen. And this is why when something is good, or something, excuse me is evil, we try our best to correct it in a way with wisdom and in a good way.

00:52:37--> 00:52:40

Not just because it's just

00:52:42--> 00:53:14

it feels good or something no magnet under a beacon. We have done our part Gowalla. We tried our best. And also perhaps the people who are doing something wrong might change their ways. Okay? Then of course, they did not stop and as they did not stop they were turned into coo coo Teradata and hos in be as apes despised. Now, the what happen is the the people who were doing this, they were turned into apes. And they

00:53:16--> 00:53:19

came to their families, their families, you know,

00:53:20--> 00:53:58

couldn't recognize them, but they could recognize obviously, their families. And then they just died off. And they they're, you know, like their progeny would not continue. So it's not like they gave birth to like another next like, a child or something. No, no, it was us. They returned to apes, and then they died. But their punishment was humiliation before they died. Ultimate humiliation for making a joke out of the laws of the Torah, making a joke out of the laws of the of the revelation, and thus they were turned into these apes. And that's the story of the Sabbath as mentioned in the plot. Not all of them were bad, though. I remember 168 Allah says, right? on our home without the

00:53:58--> 00:54:15

mama, they were spread all over the earth, the followers of musala salaam, all over the world, men who Musalia some righteous, some otherwise, we tested them with blessings and misfortunes. So they might return to the right path. This is again the Quran mentioned this again and again, that

00:54:16--> 00:54:59

they are mistakes. They were pathetic things that they did, you know, absolutely unconscionable demands they made of Musa alayhis salam. But of course, they were also good people, people who followed people who were truthful people who you know, we're true believers, if all that is mentioned. And then the last part Allah concludes that passage by describing that those who hold fast to the book and are steadfast in prayer, we shall not deny the righteous their reward in linoleum agile mostly came. After this. Our spotlight mentions the fedora the story of Adam

00:55:00--> 00:55:42

The children of Adam, all of us, by the way, okay? When your Lord brought forth ops for offspring from the loins of the children of Adam, and made them bear witness about themselves, he said, am I not sure, Lord? They replied, we bear witness that you are. This he did less you should say on the Day of Resurrection, we had no knowledge of that, or less to say, our forefathers did ship before our time, and we are only descendants who came after us. Are you going to destroy us? For what those inventors of false are dead? Like? Are you going to destroy us for the sins of our of our forefathers who were just following? Even just their kids, they were mostly keen so very much to

00:55:42--> 00:56:29

keep their gaffers a work ethic, right? Why would you destroy us all? But here's the thing that Allah says, Allah, Allah brought every single person's soul into existence before their body, okay? And gathered the soul of every single human being along with other medicinal and when he did that he made them testify as to be Rob become Mr. Lot, your Lord. They replied Bella, we bear witness that you are Bella shahidullah Hey, this was done. And the remnants of that is in all of our souls as the fedora as the natural inclination to worship Allah spawn Tada, that is the fifth Allah that is in every single human being soul.

00:56:30--> 00:57:17

lockup Hakuna insanity, Santa Anita swim, like Allah says, we made humans in the best form, meaning they're born on fitara, their soul is pure, they're born sinless, but then the society around them could corrupt them, okay, the people that they are around with corrupt them. But the nature of a person or the filter of a person is in their soul. The caffeine is the one who buries that fitara deep, deep, deep under until it dies. Or it doesn't even you know, it doesn't even cause him to think about what he's doing. That's what actually gafford mean someone who takes a seat and buries under the depth of the earth. So gopher is actually that burying our Fedora, rejecting our Fedora.

00:57:17--> 00:57:56

So Allah sparkler made all of us testify our souls, and left a reminder of that in our souls as our Fedora. Less someone comes on the beam judgment saying a lot, I had no idea about this whole worshipping you thing, and I was just, you know, a product of my time. So please don't punish me. No, no, everybody has the baseline of the Fiddler every single human being has been given that and then based on that they will be judged. Who is the judge of that? That is obviously a less powerful because we don't know how much a person has suppressed or acted upon their fitrah. But a lot most certainly does know there are also people in the day of judgment will come and they would say oh, I

00:57:56--> 00:58:33

was you know, disabled mentally or physically, I could not have followed a profit our law and never heard the message and a loss partlow will have a test for them on the Day of Judgment, because he will never punish a person without them receiving the message. It's impossible. Oh, my goodness, why Vina Hatton, Arthur Rasulullah. So this is a very important part, and lessons will cover Alexander fasudil iottie will are longer. And as we explained our science in detail, so perhaps that they may return to us. The surah concludes I'm going to skip to the conclusion here you can read the passage about the man who we gave our science to a very important passage. But the conclusion that Alas,

00:58:33--> 00:59:26

marthaler concludes with is right here, in the very last last part is number 196. in which a lost partner concludes by saying in the valley alone, levinas Al Kitab. My protector is God who has sent down the book and for it is he who protects the righteous against the battle between truth and falsehood. Allah is the Protector. Allah is the one who was with the people the truth came, he says who the law for people of the truth. Demonstrate your good character by the following actions be tolerant who the law for take tolerance literally like sees it, meaning make this a habit in times that are good and times that are bad. What more will or or enjoying what is good? What is right for

00:59:26--> 00:59:59

our ideal Daniel johannine and ignore the ignorant. Okay. In my enzyme, the enzyme Nakanishi upon us one first I will if an evil impulse from Seton provokes you to say something to act irrationally, to say something regrettable, but I've been loved and say I will live in a humanist shape on the regime in the whole seminar Liam because he is hearing, all hearing and all knowing, okay, Allah says the people who are righteous it's not like they will never get the letter make a mistake or they will never slip up. He says in the living a taco in Amazon

01:00:00--> 01:00:36

If I'm going to Shivani that guru for either home mobile soon, when an evil suggestion from Satan touches those who fear God, they instantly are alerted, and they instantly become watchful. Okay? This is something that happens, we make a mistake, but then we are alerted to that mistake. And the last part, Allah, you know, gives us the tofield to make amends. And that's a beautiful process that happens. And we should be comfortable with that. And we should embrace that we shouldn't be down upon ourselves if you make a mistake, because that will be too harsh.

01:00:37--> 01:00:56

Alas, Pato concludes this surah by reminding us that way the Quran Al Quran and the Quran is read, first Amir Allah who listened to it but the tension or answer to and hold your peace, so that you may receive mercy because the Quran should be listened attentively, so we can understand and then act upon it.

01:00:58--> 01:00:58

So this is

01:01:00--> 01:01:46

what's called Rob McAfee enough secret a lot of one wahiba remember your Lord deep in your very soul. nuff secret, a lot of one, but humility and all this is remembrance of Allah, as God, remembering offers Grace is favors the amazing sign through his words, through the words of his prophet through the law, do not judge him in a coal without raising your voice, we will do we will outside morning and evening while at the communal offering and don't be of those who are heatless don't leave in remnants of a law, those private moments where we reflect on, you know, a loss patola on his words, if we leave that for too long, we become susceptible to becoming the heedless the ones

01:01:47--> 01:01:47

who
