Although he ministry Daniela Jean smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah was early he was heavy. He was shocked. He said recently Emery looked at the Minister of cocoa quality of butter, enough atonia Hassan, fulfil, ferati Hassan Okinawa now, Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Welcome to edges today, just having a few troubles connecting the stream that now I'm connected to 100 lover good to go. Welcome to this just a day today we are covering the 20th jewels of the Quran will have the love we are entering the last third of the Quran. Now after this we will enter the last year of the Quran. And you know, this is something that's, you know, in

00:00:46--> 00:00:54

sync with the Ramadan, right, tomorrow is going to be the 20th fast of Ramadan. And that concludes the with the 21st will conclude the

00:00:56--> 00:01:47

the second third of the second third of the Ramadan, excuse me, two thirds of it will be done. And then we enter into the last 10 nights on last 10 days of Ramadan that have the last 10 nights of Ramadan that are blessed, that have the night of power in it. So we ask a lot of pray, we ask Allah to give us the ability to pray in these blessed nights to worship Him and to catch the night of power. The night which the person who is deprived of its blessings is truly deprived. The 2020 Jews includes surah number 27 surah, animal surah number 28 Surah Al casas and surah number 29 surah Olam carboot but we're going to cover today surah number 27 and 28. And you will differ or 29 to the

00:01:47--> 00:01:55

tomorrow in sha Allah to serve 27 is a normal sort of anomaly is the name of a number means the act.

00:01:56--> 00:02:00

And this is in reference to the story of the end that

00:02:01--> 00:02:50

that saw the army of Sulaiman saw the army of Solomon, and warned its people that Solomon's army is coming. And so the man on a Salaam heard her speak. And that incident that story is what the surah is named after surah number surah. Number 28 Surah Al passes isn't called the story. And this is the story of Musa but this time this is a story of Musab when he is a baby and moments leading up to his, his deliverance By Allah, his deliverance by Allah from the tyranny of Iran as a baby who would come and kill would order his soldiers to go and kill the babies of any era.

00:02:51--> 00:03:19

So it will it's it starts from those moments, and then speaks about Musashi Salaam as a young man and then musala salaam, getting married and then musar so I'm returning back to fulfill the the prophetic tasks that was given to him by Allah. So these are two stories that we have are the two students that we have today. Let's get started with surah number cha Allah, Allah Allah says in this surah Thorstein ticka idea to Karani or Kitab him moving,

00:03:20--> 00:04:05

bossing these are verses from the Quran, a book that makes things clear who don't want we should all little move meaning it is guidance and good news for the believers. And larina up Muna salata, tunas katha, whom Bill sarathi, whom you clean, who pray, who pray regularly, better translation who established a prayer meaning they pray on time they pray with devotion they pray with meaning, or you tune as occur and they pay the Zakat, the obligatory arms were humble authority whom you clean, they have firm faith in the hereafter. This is a beautiful description of the believers it starts by this beautiful introduction of who the believers are.

00:04:07--> 00:04:42

And what the Quran the relationship of the believers is with the Quran. The Quran is a guide and a source of good news for the believers. It's a guide for, for us in all aspects of our life, how we should conduct ourselves, how we should conduct businesses, how we should conduct our family affairs, how we should view the world. It's a guide on how we should, you know, be in touch with our emotions, but also not that our emotions take over us. It's a guide in every aspect. It's a guide for the individual is a guide for the community. It's a guide for the world.

00:04:44--> 00:05:00

Bushra it's also a source of good news. It should give us optimism when we read the Quran. It should, it should clear our doubts if you have nagging questions about the quest the idea of divinity of Allah subhanaw taala and only

00:05:00--> 00:05:51

Unlock or the power of Allah to bring people into to recreate people after they already existence or Allah's justice when it comes to punishment. And you know his his mercy when it comes to help ahead is put justice when it comes to the punishment of Hellfire, His mercy when it comes to paradise, all these questions that we have around these, these constructs, Musharraf's meaning the Quran is, is clearing all the doubts, and then it gives us optimism and good news. And that should make us happy. And this is one of the dials the Prophet some taught us that Oh Allah make the Quran the thing that the the the thing the Rabi Abu Dhabi are called, it's the thing that is the spring of my heart, it

00:05:51--> 00:06:05

brings me joy. And the thing that takes away the habla zanni, or HMI was me and I had the wording of the DA is, you know, variant.

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

thing that takes away my grief and my sorrow. That's what the Quran is supposed to be for the believers. Those who are these believers, they pray regularly, and they pay, there's a cut that starts with the prayer, that's the anchor that holds us down. We cannot let go of it. And then also helping those in need. That was the cat is and the Eman that we have is we are certainly in here after a very beautiful description. We ask God to make us of these people that who are certain they're going to stand in front of Allah given account for what they have done. And that moment is what guides the decisions they make today. Okay. Last month dimensions about the people who don't

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

live this way. What Why did they choose that in the Latina union, I will ask for those who do not believe in the hereafter. What's the reason they Yana home Arma home home Yama Hoon, we have

00:07:01--> 00:07:45

feel their actions appeared good to them. The world is pleasant, and that's all this they're concerned with. And that causes them to wander blindly. meaning they're just, you know, going around in the life of the world, okay, whereas the believer is also taking what they have to take from life, the world, but they're working towards their next life. And that is the difference between the two. Of course, these people will have the a terrible punishment, and they will be the greatest losers. Now this surah has a phrase that repeats in its in it six times for six in six consecutive ayat. And that phrase that repeats in the surah, that I will show that you inshallah, in a little

00:07:45--> 00:08:30

bit is Allahumma Allah, is there a god besides Allah? Is there a God that can be worshipped? other than Allah? How is that something that's even a remote possibility? That is what the surah repeatedly asks. And that is a theme to show us how it is, you know, it is not something that is feasible, or it's not something that should be considered that others should be are worthy of worship. besides Allah, people worship others besides Allah. But that is something that is important, because only Allah is worth your worship. And the surah is going to make a case for that. It starts by talking about it's going to speak about miraculous signs. That's the thing that the

00:08:30--> 00:09:03

surah will speak about miraculous signs in history, and miraculous signs all around us miraculous signs in history. We start by talking about the story of Moses, and by the way, in this past part of the Quran, the 20th Jews are maybe starting from the 17th Jews, every single Jews you find for for the next little while, I mentioned on Moosa in it right very, very frequently, his name comes again and again and again. Again, because he's such a important such a central character in the Quran.

00:09:04--> 00:09:09

When Moses said to his family, I see a burning fire and I will bring to you,

00:09:10--> 00:09:26

you know, some news or a burning brand for you to warn yourself, but when he came, he was blessed by Allah subhanaw taala was revelation and chosen for the mission of prophethood Okay, and given all the signs that

00:09:29--> 00:09:40

that, you know, he needs to convey the message to fit out this is the miraculous signs of a gift to moussaka, right? This is a historical account of the miraculous signs, okay.

00:09:42--> 00:09:46

In this in the surah number 12 mentioned that they were nine miracles, feed this

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

homie he can no longer no Coleman. Firstly, there will be one of nine signs for Pharaoh and his people. For truly the rebellious people. Nine

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

miraculous signs, nine signs that Allah sent them. There were miracles that, you know, these people rejected. Okay, that's how, you know, rebellious, that's how evil they were. It wasn't just like one thing and they're like, we're not sure. Do we really see that or not? No, it was nine. And

00:10:19--> 00:10:28

it was one sign that was the followed was bigger than the one that was previous, more obvious, more grand.

00:10:29--> 00:11:13

And that still was something that did not convince them, of accepting what musasa was bringing forward worship Allah, and that bunnies ready to go. couldn't do that. They could not bring themselves to do that. They said this is this is how does the hero movie this is clear sorcery. And what do we have? They persisted in rejecting them wrongfully was they cannot have and foster home, Wilma waroona work and arrogantly they kept on rejecting them wrong for the unerring elite. While in their hearts, they were convinced of their truth. Oh, look at this. Inside the new This is not a magician inside the new This is not a liar. The new This is a true prophet was the pinata from your

00:11:13--> 00:11:22

team. They had your team within themselves, that this is actually the right thing. But volman marylu what they kept concealing that

00:11:23--> 00:11:59

in terms, you know wrongfully and arrogantly and kept publicly opposing Moosa and that was the way they were and then observe how they're the end of these people was to this is a historical account of miraculous signs for Moosa after Moosa was though then so a man or a certain people stole knowledge on David and Solomon is number 15. And they both said we'll call Alhamdulillah Hilah de for balena Allah Kathy remain Eva, meaning Praise be to God who has exalted us but many of his believing servants, okay.

00:12:01--> 00:12:35

What was these miraculous signs? Right, miraculous signs number one, makalah yo Nasser, limni, monta kata, you know, my people that we have been given these, we have been taught the speech of birds by ODM and coolie Shea and women endowed with all good things. And that is not you know, that didn't make them arrogant or something in the Heather la who will follow Moby This is a God's manifest grace that he has allowed us to be in this manner. The screen is okay. Right. Just wanted to make sure the screen is the screen is fine.

00:12:37--> 00:12:39

Please, can someone tell me Yes.

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

Okay, perfect. Thank you very much.

00:12:46--> 00:13:28

Alright, so number one, they were given from they were, they were taught the speech of birds, they could understand the communication of birds. Number two, that they were endowed with all good things, but this is a reference to Quran makes this reference that the animals have communication between them, right? This is something we know today from science. The Quran makes reference to that from the time of doubt, and so they might Okay, Solomon, his army was amazing. His army was crucial. This was a minor you know, the human Elgin Naval Institute doily from us our own. The hosts of Jin, men and birds are all gathered in his presence and arranged in battle order. This was the amazing

00:13:28--> 00:14:16

army of Solomon, what a great gift from Allah. That's number three. Yes. A great gift, a great miraculous sign. But here is the interesting thing. This great powerful army was not an army of tyrants. These were righteous people, led by a righteous prophet and a righteous King. And they were not tyrants not even to like the little ants. They wouldn't oppress or heard even the little ads had that either at or lower than normally. Until when they came on to the valley of the ads, or letter number one and said yeah, you are numb. Oh and good Hello, my Sakina come enter or go into your dwellings. Lastly, my knuckle soleimani would you know do who in case Solomon and his his army his

00:14:16--> 00:14:30

hosts inadvertently crush you? Or whom is your rune? And they don't recognize they don't they don't realize they have done so right because it's so big and powerful You're so small, so go hide forever summer boy Hey, come in Cali ha

00:14:32--> 00:14:42

so Solomon brought smiled broadly at its words. How nice. So the Imam Ali Salaam right so the man either his Salam

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

This is an example of that this great army was not an army of people that were oppressors and its people who wanted to pillage and, and whatnot. This was a righteous army, and even the little valley of ants, little ants. They wouldn't hurt

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

As he is reminded to the man of the favor of his Lord, that this is such a great favor that Allah has given me that has given me this amazing army and the ability to understand the words of this

00:15:13--> 00:15:53

of this creature right he turns to Allah and says Robbie I was there any my lord inspire me to be thankful for the blessings you have granted me and my parents and to do good deeds that please you and including me by your grace among your righteous servants. Okay. This is a beautiful daughter so number is number 19. I am a 19 underline this make this door Robbie I was there any and Ashkelon Yamato karate and I'm Dahlia or otherwise is a year. Okay? inspire me to be thankful for the blessings you have granted me and to my parents and inspire me to do good deeds that please you and include me by your grace among your righteous servants. And this is coming from a great king and a

00:15:53--> 00:16:01

great prophet. He just wants to be among the righteous servants of Allah. He just wants to be grateful. What a beautiful attitude. That's how we should be okay. Now

00:16:02--> 00:16:50

with humility doesn't mean you become weak. So he is a toughy. He is a general he's the commander in chief. So he is taking account of his army he sees you know, a The hupo is missing hood, the Hood. Hood. The hood is the bird. Okay, the hippo is missing. Where is he missing? Why is he not here? He's he has to maintain order in his army. So he says if the hupo doesn't show up, or the bunnahabhain shaden Ola tianni I will alert your neighbors autonomo been right he is has to keep a his house in check in order otherwise, otherwise, it's gonna be chaos. So he is tough as a commander, but he's gentle with his subjects. Okay, but what had a reason right? I will add the name

00:16:50--> 00:17:33

is autonomo been Bring me a good reason. What brought a good reason. What did he say? He said, I have learned something that you did not know I have come to you from Sheba. But reliable news. What is Shiva, Shiva is a kingdom. And there was a queen that ruled that kingdom and she was Queen of Sheba. Okay. And we're going to learn about that lady today in this story. And what an incredible, you know, story that is, before we get to that I actually forgot to mention, look at this end, right? The end here in number 18. Isn't it so nice? This and in the Quran mentions the speech of somebody, right? sometimes very good, right? There's something to learn from that. Whether it's a

00:17:33--> 00:18:27

person or a jinn or an angel, or an end, right. And what we learned from the end here is the end is so selfless, this one and couldn't run away and hit itself, right. It saved its life. But this end is showing the quality of selflessness, the quality of caring, and, and get having at the back of his fits community. Right, this these are beautiful qualities. These are qualities that are admirable across the board. This is how a believer should be we shouldn't be selfish, obsessed about ourselves only. Okay, now let's come to God who says Well, I saw this Queen, and this queen. She had everything with the admin Konishi. And she had a mighty throne, but they were worshipping the sun

00:18:27--> 00:18:39

instead of God, how could they worship? The sun? Right? Again, remember the story, the theme of the surah is how can they be a god besides Allah? Right? This is what they were doing. They had everything and yet they didn't figure this out.

00:18:40--> 00:19:20

That they Elias, you did not you did not work? Why should they not worship God, who brings forth what is hidden in the heavens and the earth, and he knows what you conceal and what you make known. Right? I love without ilaha illa Allah, Allah, she loves him, he is God the one there is no way no one worthy of worship besides Him, the Lord of the mighty throne. This is a place again, where you can make such that this is the symbol for that inshallah you can make that afterwards. Alright. So the man says, All right, let's verify what you have said. That's verify what you've said. Are you making an excuse to get out of trouble? Or are you really telling the truth, this is actually, you

00:19:20--> 00:19:59

know, important leadership lessons to ensure that, you know, the nobody's running an army. He's not running like a corporation, but an army This is important to keep maintain the chain of command, and to make sure that no one you know below can cause a friction that will compromise the whole army, right? So he's going to verify how is he going to verify he says, Take this lecture of mine and lay it before them and then withdraw from them and see how they respond. What is this lecture the lecture Now see, he says, The Hood Hood take my letter now the scene cuts to where the letter has been

00:20:00--> 00:20:37

received and the Queen the Queen of Sheba is now reading this letter to him. And she says, Yeah, a U haul mallow in Olympia Illa Yaki Darwin, Kareem all councillors and honorable letter has been delivered to me in hoomans with a man our inner who Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. It is from Solomon. It reads the smilla Rahmanir Rahim. This is the only place in the Quran nervous when LED on the Rahim comes in the middle of the ayah. How did you know that? This is the only place you can highlight that for like a Quran trivia thing. If you ever participate in that, maybe in the Kahoot on Sunday, and if you win a prize, send it my way.

00:20:39--> 00:21:24

I love that I love Allah. Tony muslimeen do not exalt yourselves above me, or come to me in all submission. It's upon Allah. He's got straight to the point. Don't resist, accept Islam. And except my rule again, this is a powerful King, a righteous King and the righteous prophet. Look at the lessons we're going to learn from this lady, the Queen of Sheba. This she's not a Muslim right now. But last month, I was mentioning what she's going to do, because there's wisdom in how she conducts herself. She says yeah, are you on my luck? Yeah. Are you on my level of Tony feel angry? Oh, my counselors, oh, my leaders advise me about this. Now going to court, the attorney Omran had Natasha

00:21:24--> 00:22:12

Dune, I never decided an affair till I have converged with you, I never make a decision until have spoken to you and ask your opinion. This is exactly what a leader should do. Right? Anybody who's in charge of anything, that's how they should be, they should be able to consult the people who are with her, her supporters, her core group of people and make sure that they're on board before she makes or he makes a decision. And here, the Queen of Sheba is doing that beautifully. Okay. The, the, the advisors I said, they said, Well, we are strong. oluwatosin chedid. We are, you know, we're tough warriors. We can battle. No problem. Right? If he wants to fight we can fight. Why not?

00:22:13--> 00:23:04

They're almost like saying bring it up. Well, I'm really lucky. But the decision is in your hands fondo de mydata Marine. So consider what you will say what you command is your choice. Tell us what you take a look at this lady. Right? Her generals are ready to fight. Now she wants to go into war, she could go into war and be you know, someone who is acting, probably out of emotion not out of rationality. But look at how she is she is a rational person. He says all at Intel maluca hollow Korea ton of sadu. She said surely when the mighty kings invade a country, they despoil it and humiliate its noblest inhabitants, which is that earlier? Avila. Okay, Delica alone, and these men

00:23:04--> 00:23:10

will do the same. She's like war has a very steep price. Right?

00:23:11--> 00:23:20

Because it destroys your land, it humiliates you. Even if you win, you lose people, right? It has a steep price.

00:23:21--> 00:24:03

So she says let's not jump into it. Let's negotiate. Let's try to see what they want. Maybe they want to attribute let's send them a gift to see, will they accept that and then back away? Maybe they just want a tribute from us. And that's better than going all out into war. This is actually really interesting, right? Look, again, this is a lady. This point, she's not a Muslim. The Quran is mentioning what she's saying, and how she's, you know, making decisions. To give us the idea that these are achieved noble characteristics, consulting with people as a noble characteristic. Wanting to avoid confrontation is a noble characteristic. The escalation is a noble characteristic. This is

00:24:03--> 00:24:12

a lady who's showing what leadership looks like, right? It shows you by the way that women can be in leadership positions, if there are

00:24:14--> 00:24:59

it's about merit more than anything else, this lady had merit. And that's why she had, you know, the ability to make decisions. Okay. That said, so you might notice I was in no mood to accept any offering. He was like, Well, no, no, no, I'm not here to take any any tributes from you. I'm here to, you know, bring you under the rule of God. Okay. And if you don't, if you resist, I'm going to send you an army that will you have no hope against. And you will be, you know, disgraced and humbled as a man his name is a, you know, I age a warrior as well and he's leading an army. And this is how armies are led by they're led to win and are led to like, lose, so

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

lemonis makes it very clear, he's in no mood for that. But he still wants to avoid war. He still wants to avoid war, despite being powerful. So he says, You know what, yeah, you will mellow you could be a teeny beyond Shiva, cobbler, Tony muslimeen or counselors, he turns to his chiefs who can bring her throne to me before they come to me in submission. Because he wants to show her that this is not i'm not just powerful King and I'm going to humiliate you he he wants to assure that he's a messenger of God. And Allah has given him miraculous science. Okay, a strong demon said, I'll bring it to you before you stand up. But a demon who had in the oil mineral keytab, who had knowledge of

00:25:44--> 00:26:22

the book, he said, I can bring it to you. In the twinkling of an eye, the previous guy said I can bring it to you. And Takuma McCormick, before you stand up from your seat, I'm strong and trustworthy. But this guy said I can bring it to you in the twinkling of the eye, but not notice interesting here. The first one is mentioned as a fleet, a fleet is actually a powerful engine. That's the name for a powerful engine. You can think of it like a bodybuilders type jet. Okay. But this one is mentioned as all over the air in the middle keytab he know had knowledge of the book that shows you that sometimes brute strength and brute force is not going to win the day. You have

00:26:22--> 00:26:29

to use skill and knowledge and wisdom and that will actually Trump brute force.

00:26:30--> 00:26:37

Obviously, the combination of skill, knowledge, intelligence and force is irresistible. Okay. But

00:26:38--> 00:26:58

if you are, you know, picking just you know, force and just just brute force versus intelligent, scheming and wisdom, you will actually think that most of the time intelligent plans and wisdom would win. And that's some fun, something we learned from this idea, as well. And it can be

00:27:00--> 00:27:00

thought of

00:27:03--> 00:27:35

as many like, you know, parallels in life if you're trying to construct something if you're, you know, brute force, you know, just hammering hammering, hammering, you're probably gonna break it. Okay. We have to use the first skill that a tactics a little bit of, you know, method and then you're fine and then a little bit of force obviously helps. So look at this guy, he does so he brings it back to them and some has her throne in the twinkling of his eye, right? This is a Gen with superpowers. They traveled across the land and like, I don't know, lightspeed brought this throne and brought it back and lightspeed. Wow, okay.

00:27:37--> 00:28:22

So Nevada Sam did not say okay, cool. He turned around and thank Allah He said, Hi, them. In fact, the Ruby, this is by the grace of my Lord, this is Allah's blessing upon me, Leah Maloney a school for he wants to see Avaya grateful or ungrateful, whoever is grateful in his for their own good, and whoever is ungrateful, then surely my Lord is self sufficient and generous. Allah doesn't need your, your your thanks for him to be who he is. It doesn't increase him in any way. It doesn't decrease him in any way. It's you who benefit, it's I will benefit if I thank Allah for the good. He gives me look at again, the humility of cinema Salaam, that he doesn't let his blessings turn him into

00:28:22--> 00:28:37

someone who becomes entitled, he always is reminded, and he has a blessing that I should thank Allah for the blessing I have and that is the believers attitude, the attitude of gratitude. All right, so the man on Instagram, of course,

00:28:39--> 00:29:11

now is going to say this guy's her throne. Let's see if she can spot when she came. She said, yes, this throne looks like my throne. But you know what? We actually learned about who you were, and we're cool now. muslimeen we actually accepted Islam. Before we came, we actually became believers before we came. So the war was awaited hamdulillah because she figured out that this is a prophet and not just some power hungry King, and she accepted the message and became Muslim, okay. And

00:29:12--> 00:29:57

as she was entering to the [???]hole to enter the palace, being the holy sword, she was told enter the palace, but then when she saw the palace, she thought it was that the floor was a legit and it was a deep pool of water. lukashenka dancer play her so she lifted her dress, bared her legs, thinking that she's gonna have to step into water. She didn't realize this was like a sea through floor or in the hole saw her mama Robin kawari Solomon said, this is a palace paved with glass, Allahu Akbar. The palace also demands a lamp. The floor was glass. So clear, so pristine, that if you when you see the water that's flowing from under it, you actually think you're going to step in

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

the water, right? It's like that beautiful.

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

For sandy beach, when you look at the water, you can see the sand right through. Right, one of those like, beaches in like Mauritius or something, yes, somewhere in the Caribbean, that same idea. That's how clear this glass was. And now she really realizes even more that this is a prophet of Allah. This is not just some like person who is really powerful. He, you know, these are the miraculous signs that he has been given. She said, I'll be in the event, and I've seen some Tamara Sulayman lillahi Rabbil aalameen. She said, My Lord, I have wronged myself. And I submit myself along with Solomon, to God, the Lord of the universe. And this is a story of the Queen of Sheba.

00:30:38--> 00:31:20

That's mentioned in Surah number 27, a very beautiful story, you would you know, the Quran mentions powerful women, their stories, and she is one of them has many lessons to learn from her story, that you don't let your emotions overtake your rationality has she done that she would not have been a Muslim and she would not have been, she would have lost out you lost her kingdom, her life, all that but she used reasoning and logic, and that allowed her to prevail. She, you know, didn't lose. You know, her kingdom or her life. And she accepted Islam and attained salvation. And that's a very beautiful thing. So these are miraculous signs that Allah shows. Throughout history, Moosa was

00:31:20--> 00:31:31

giving miraculous sides so the man was given miraculous signs. Then you have solly Elisa Lam, I number 4045. Given miraculous signs, what is the miraculous signs that he was given?

00:31:32--> 00:32:17

He was given the the camel, the camel that was brought out from the rock, but the people were not really interested in believing in him, right? Why? They said, Well, we see you and your followers as an evil Omen, follow toyana become hobbema Mark, we think you are evil, and you are the source of evil. And we you know, think you guys are messed up. He says, Call a tow ito kumarakom He says, You're evil, evil Omen is with quality. Excuse me, your evil Omen is with Allah. But untung Oman afternoon, the truth is you are people being put to the test. Right? There's no evil omens here. Whatever good or bad you get is by the decree of Allah.

00:32:18--> 00:33:05

is by the decree of Allah subhanaw taala as well, his permission, you are being tested right now. You see a miracle. This camel, you didn't demand it. This camel is here, appearing and emerging out of a rock. You never thought it was gonna be possible. And but here it is. And now you are caught between a rock and a hard place no pun intended. You are now caught between the choice of accepting this miracle as real and accepting solid Hello Sam as a prophet. And that is too much for you to bear. Because you're too arrogant. And you that will be a you know, a type of a humiliation. Or you're caught between somehow denying this clear miracle. This is the point and uncommon afternoon,

00:33:05--> 00:33:52

the people demanding miracles and and then magic tricks from profits. If they were shown them like here historically, here, it would have it fit around here with solar. They don't really say Oh, great. All right, confirm these a profit. That's not the thing. They're even become, they become even more stubborn, even more like they dig their heels into their coffers. Whereas the one who is not demanding miracles, like the Queen of Sheba, when she sees a miracle immediately, just like Yep, definitely This is the prophet of God. Right? So it's you see, it's the the nature of the person and whether they want to believe or not, that determines how they view the miracle. And here men they

00:33:52--> 00:34:07

saw the miracle they didn't want to accept it. And what they did in fact is that they plotted to kill this this camel and they were nine men who did it get everybody that it is Otto Rocky, you've seen enough without they were nine evil people.

00:34:09--> 00:34:51

They'd planned that let's attack the attack solly and his family and if you know Saul, his family comes and says you know like Saul his clan or something comes and says you know we're gonna We want justice says much hate in America you are in Nagasaki saw the moon? We did not we were we didn't do anything. When he was destroyed. We're trying the truth. And the device the plan, but Allah devised the plan as well. And then they were destroyed nine people. Right? We would say well, that's how is that fair? nine people were the ones who cause this why not the whole city and community Why were they destroyed? Well, two reasons. Number one, they were not

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

they didn't stop this right. This this plan was put into action with their with their

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

tacit approval, this is an evil thing to do. And they didn't stop this. And number two, the whole community and besides the ones who believed in sada didn't actually believe in the camel as a miracle even though the demanded and then as the Quran mentions in other places Baraka Roja hamstrung it, they killed it, and then they tried to kill solid. Okay, so that is where now you now you have sealed your fate. And now you're asking for God's punishment and that's exactly what happened. Another Multnomah County hemangioma, actually, we destroyed them and their people are totally all together. Right? They killed the camel. They tried to kill saga Salaam before they could

00:35:41--> 00:36:01

kill salia salaam. They were destroyed. These nine people were the real troublemakers. This is an important lesson. The corrupt elements of society have to be you know, corrected have to be controlled because they could lead a community down this this devastating path of destruction.

00:36:02--> 00:36:30

Okay, so I'll just say Oh, just a minority of people who are you know, bad but the rest of us are good people, though. You got to address that as well. Allah Allah, Allah Samantha says, In the in those destroyed homes, there are signs for people of knowledge, right? The people of knowledge recognize you don't need to see miraculous signs to believe in God because God's miraculous signs are all over the place. Okay?

00:36:32--> 00:37:20

What are the miraculous signs of God? And number 59 speaks about those miraculous signs. Julio hamdu lillahi, wa sallahu, wa ala the hilarious tafa Praise be to God and peace be upon his chosen servants. Allah hi on my shikun is God better or what they associate with him? Is he who created the heavens and the earth and sends on water for you from the sky by which we make luxuriant gardens grow. So you could so much so you can never make such trees grow in them? Is it another deity besides God? Isla Houma LA, Bella Hong Kong we are de Lune they are indeed people who want to equate others with Allah, Allah. You want to see signs of who your Lord is, you look around, and signs are

00:37:20--> 00:38:05

everywhere. Okay, Amanda, Alan Alda Corrado, who is it that made the earth a stable place to live in and made rivers flow through it, who said mountains upon it placed a barrier between the two seas so that the salty water, the fresh water remains fresh and we can do it?

Bonilla, Mata the Quran, how little you pay heed the system of the creation, the the beauty and the harmony in it, the blessings that we have that allow us to live and thrive, all of that the personal experience of finding God, all of that tells you what Allahumma Allah Amalia decom Luma Tilbury, well, Baja, who guides you in the darkness of the land and sea? who helps you navigate these things?

cools down people when they're hot, the wind blows the sails of the ships, the wind pollinates the flowers, the wind moves around the clouds and brings the rain. The wind is a carrier of Allah's mercy it brings relief after suffering. Who does that Allahumma Allah is there any de de besides God, there are low on my Shaquan exalted is God above those that us that they associate with him as the fourth instance, fifth instance.

00:39:28--> 00:39:38

And may have the Caldecott so my Sorry, that was the fifth one sorry, this is the sixth one coming. I mean, you're in Hong Kong, the mo you are Edo, Miyazaki sama.

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

Isla, whom Allah who originates the creation, then regenerates it, and who gives you sustenance from the heaven and the earth who causes the creation by he began the creation, the process of it, and then this repeats again and again and again. Daily kids are born daily animals are

00:40:00--> 00:40:15

00:40:16--> 00:40:39

Allah how to bahara come in quantum soldering, bring forward your proofs if you're telling the truth. So this is the thing, the surah talks about the miraculous signs, the miraculous signs of Allah subhanaw taala, the miraculous signs historically, and the miraculous signs of Allah all around us, okay, very, very beautiful, very important things for us to consider.

00:40:41--> 00:41:28

The people again, who are in denial, they're going to say, how's this going to happen? Right? How will we brought be brought back to life? Right? We were promised this, our fathers were promised this, what gives? How come this hasn't happened? We'll see. Rufus is 69 roam across the land and observe what was the end of the sinful ones go and see how Allah took, you know, took to test the people who rejected him, okay, the profits is told, don't feel grief over them and don't be distressed at their schemes or profit. Well, that as an RA himolla, takushi by him in my M. karoun. They would continue the attitude of the believer does the disbelievers is despite all these

00:41:28--> 00:41:36

beautiful, clear signs of who God is they say, when will this promise be fulfilled? When is this day of judgment going to come?

00:41:37--> 00:42:11

The answer is Allah knows best. He has hidden it, but I sat in your corner howdy Polycom. It may be that it's close. Because your end of life is your day of judgment. Right? You don't know when you're going to die. So don't hastin your demise. Just because you don't like what you hear. Don't hasten your demise. On your Lord is bountiful to mankind but most are not grateful. He gives chances but most of the people don't consider the chances a lot cantata gives

00:42:13--> 00:42:21

the surah concludes with a number 89 okay with a very beautiful

00:42:24--> 00:42:46

Sorry, I am number 87. I number 87. Some scenes from the Day of Judgment, miraculous Ayat of Allah, miraculous signs of Allah that are to come. Right miraculous signs that came before miraculous signs that are all around us. And now the miraculous signs that are to come on the Day of Judgment. What is that? Are you on my own sofa saw on the day when the Trumpet is blown.

00:42:47--> 00:43:07

And whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth, will be struck with terror fuzzy, I'm unfit sumati one fell out in lemon sha Allah, except for those who God wishes to spare, all will come to him in utter humility. That trumpet is blown, as we'll see in another surah is coming up.

00:43:09--> 00:43:48

In this one, number 39. The trumpet is blown the first time that signals the end of the world everybody dies, then there's blown the second time by the angel is sort of you and then every single person who has ever lived will be brought back to life. And that's when the Day of Judgment begins. What are all gbl adaptable Hayami that when you see the mountains are you see the mountains and you think they are firmly fixed. But on that day, we're here at the muramasa hub, it shall pass away as the clouds pass away. The Quran speaks about this idea of judgment and makes this very clear. And this is an important thing for us to understand. For those of us who want to, you know, like we're

00:43:48--> 00:44:27

trying to understand how will the earth be changed. The Quran actually says this in a sort of 14 Yamato, but it was somewhat on the day the earth shall be changing to another Earth, as shall the heavens the rules of physics, the laws of nature that we know no longer apply on that day, because the earth will be changed fundamentally into a different part. And the sky will be changed to a different sky. So all that we know of it, like the mountain is not supposed to float in the in the air, that rule applied to the world as we know it today, on the day of judgment, the world will be changed. And that's when you see the mountains are just flying away and this kind of chaos adds to

00:44:27--> 00:44:59

the to the to the chaos of the day, the gravity of the day of the Day of Judgment, such as the work of God who has ordained ordered all things to perfection. He is fully aware of what you do, Mangia Abolhassan it fella, hi Roman have a beautiful conclusion to the surah. Whoever does a good deed shall be rewarded, but what is better and they will be secure from the fear of the day of judgment and the one who brings a good deed. That's one job I will say yeah, but those who do evil will be flung down

00:45:00--> 00:45:50

on their faces in the fire, are you not rewarded according to your needs are to dishonor llama content alone? It's actually because of what you have earned. That is why you are in this situation. The Prophet is told to worship Allah alone. And to an attorney well Quran to recite the Quran cave. This is what he's told to worship Allah alone and to recite the Quran for to follow its guidance, more for money in nema 30 dylewski whoever follows his guidance follows it for the good of their own soul, Amanda in purple enamel and I'm wondering, and whoever goes astray, say to them I am only a warning Reagan just tell you, your choice is your choice. You make your choices with Al Hamdulillah

00:45:50--> 00:46:37

say a praise be to God, He will show you his signs and you will recognize them for daddy funada you will recognize them in your heart, you will recognize them, you know within yourselves. Whether you choose to accept them or not. That's a different question. But you will recognize them you will feel God's power you will feel his his his plan in action you will see his wisdom whether you choose to accept it or not as your choice, but you will see it photographer now. My motto bookable, often and i'm not i'm alone. Your Lord is not unaware of what you do. He knows exactly the choices you're going to make. So the castles Surah 28. b being certain that Allah's promise is the truth that is

00:46:37--> 00:47:23

Surah cosas starts with the same a disjointed letters porcine mean, these are the verses of the book that makes things clear these guys look at that movie and I hope you appreciate that when the Quran says this. It truly is the book that clarifies concepts for us. The Quran doesn't focus on halal haram so much the rulings are actually very few in the Quran. We haven't seen much since we were number five, actually. Okay. Very few rulings we've seen since surah. Five, most of those rulings are in the first few sutras and a few in the later on. But the Quran vastly speaks about, you know, concepts that people get hung up on that prevent them from being fully devoted to Allah because if

00:47:23--> 00:48:08

you can be fully devoted to Allah, then you will figure out how to practice your religion, how to pray, how to do this, and that those are all you know, things are that are easy to solve and easy to understand. This is the hard part. And that's what the Quran does, it clarifies these things and ties the knots that a person might have mental blocks in their, in their in their mind tilka to move in it makes things clear. What How does Allah do that he chooses the instrument of telling stories of the past, you know, lessons from history, that's what the Quran uses, as a way to clarify things as a way to teach us things that louella can never immerse our for our own, I will help clinico me,

00:48:08--> 00:48:52

you know, Michelle narrate to you some of the story of Moses and the pharaoh with truth for people who believe who is the pharaoh what kind of tyrant is he? He is so arrogant. He divided the people into groups. This is classic, you know, divide and conquer. That's how the Congress ruled. That's how you know imperialists rule today, that's how fit around root cause for our own was not like necessarily an overpowering majority. He had to make sure that Bernie is ill did not overpower him. How did you do that? You divide them into groups, and you make them fight each other, and you install puppets to rule over them. And that's how you maintain your dominance. Sounds familiar?

00:48:52--> 00:49:28

Well, that I don't, you know, wrote the book on that. Yesterday, a photo if at a minimum, and he was seeking to weaken a section of them, perhaps the one that he was most afraid from the ones he was more most concerned about? Would that be home, slaying their sons, humiliating them, humiliating them by killing their newborn sons? What can be more humiliating than that? Where's the heat in his home and spearing their daughters don't weaken their resolve to weaken the army to make them you know?

00:49:29--> 00:49:59

Tell them I can do whatever I want with you. I can enslave you. I can take your women and enslave them. I can kill your children. That is who fell around was in the hook. No middle mousseline? Can you imagine living under that? Can you imagine the mentality of the people who grew up in that system how colonized and oppressed their minds must have been but Allah is prompt that says despite all mundo de do a nominal neediness to the removal of we wish to have

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

Those who were oppressed in the land, to make them leaders to make them inheritance, inheritors of our bounties of an last month at once. Even the most downtrodden, oppressed people, Allah will lift them up. And that is what Allah wanted with the Israelites to give them power in the land to show to Pharaoh and Harmon, that this is something the thing you are fearing for it's coming for you. How does it start? gave.

00:50:32--> 00:50:33

Notice the theme here.

00:50:35--> 00:50:50

The theme as being certain of Allah is promised, notice how Allah is going to make a promise and then keep a promise. Okay. And this is going to show us how we should be certain in the promise for Allah. here Allah makes a promise to the mother of Musa

00:50:51--> 00:50:53

when she is afraid of him being killed.

00:50:54--> 00:51:08

Allah says to her to her, all the he circled him that will help him calm down. That will also come your nerves down game because there's a beautiful connection the mother and baby have when that process is taking place. Now when you're afraid

00:51:09--> 00:51:21

that the arm the guards of the pharaoh are close for LTE failure me while at the Harvey will atrocity cast him in the river. I have no fear and do not grieve. So panela

00:51:22--> 00:51:49

you would think that would cause a lot of grief you throw your baby in the river. But Allah says don't grieve, don't worry, pairs the less promise two promises number one in narodu Radu ilahi we will make him return to you. He shall return to you for sure. Don't worry about what Jerry luminometer He won't drown he won't get killed, he will be back and we will make him a messenger. Allahu Akbar. All right. Now how does Allah fulfill his promise?

00:51:50--> 00:51:52

I number 13

00:51:53--> 00:51:57

the Pharaoh's wife rescues

00:51:58--> 00:52:13

Actually, let's go to number nine. Pharaoh's wife rescues this baby. She says don't kill him. He's going to be his source of joy for me and for you. Maybe we can you know maybe he'll be abuse don't kill him.

00:52:15--> 00:52:15

And

00:52:17--> 00:52:22

that is how he survived. He wasn't killed. But then how did he come back? The

00:52:24--> 00:52:51

musos mother said to me, his his sister or see, go watch him follow him as he's floating down the river. She's watched him from a distance like a stranger without anyone noticing her but sort of behind you know, mom natural. They didn't want to. She didn't want them to think that they're related. And look at our smart dis girls and look at how many women are mentioned in this suit up the mother Moosa, the wife of around the sister Moosa. Okay.

00:52:52--> 00:52:54

But look how smart this this young lady is.

00:52:55--> 00:53:37

She follows him but doesn't give away that there are related M and her hearts probably like, no like full of anxiety, but she's putting on a very beautiful poker face. Now musallam is not suckling, from any woman. However, I'm not sure the hidden maratea the sister steps it walks into the palace of the Pharaoh, the tyrant, the man, the baby killer, okay, walks into her path in his palace, and says, I can tell you have a family, they'll take care of him. And I can tell you somebody who is widow bringing up bring him up for you make sure that he's fed. And that's how he came back to the mother. But other than that, who he let me cater Carla, I knew her. We restored him to his mother so

00:53:37--> 00:54:01

that he might be comforted and not grieve anymore. And so that she would know that God's promise was true that Allah would keep his promises, but I can let him lie on me. But most of the people don't realize this. They are smart this there's so many lessons in this story as well. I feel so bad. I'm skipping, like I add to every I hear has like, tons of lessons. Okay. Look at first, the mother Moosa.

00:54:02--> 00:54:40

She's not like saying, okay, God told me, my child's gonna be back. So let me just sit on my hands and wait for him to be back. No, that's not what trusting Allah means. That's not what our call means. That we're calling Allah trusting Allah means you take all the means necessary. You hustle as hard as you can hustle. And then whatever you don't control, it's an Allah's hands. And that is Allah's. We believe that with Allah, that's what the word call truly means. What does she do what what's the least what's the most surely that she could do? The most she could do is have her daughter observe where baby Moses ends up. So she instructs him to do that. Okay, so this is what

00:54:40--> 00:54:59

our conus second lesson. Look at how amazing the sister Messiah is. She doesn't give away the relationship that they have. He doesn't, you know, hint that this is a plan that she's hatching and whatnot. And she takes initiative to go up into the palace and takes the risks.

00:55:00--> 00:55:36

Go up to these people who are murderers to say, you know what I can I can, you know, tell you I can help you out here, right? This is a courageous young woman, how amazing and these little these these characters are in the Quran for us to ponder and learn from their, their life stories and be inspired by their, their characteristics to be like, okay, so she took initiative, that's what we should be doing to taking initiative to, you know, get what needs to be done, that we need to get done. She took initiative. That's what we should be doing to take initiative to get stuff done. Alright. musala salaam now is in trouble.

00:55:38--> 00:56:26

z promise med. The promises made to moose as Mother promise kept to moose as mother panela. Now musala salam will find himself in trouble because he's grown up. He is a fully grown man. He's mature, he is strong. He ends up seeing two people fighting and he recognizes one of them is an Israelite and the other is an Egyptian. And you want to side with the oppressed. So he's siding with the oppressed without recognizing that oppressed person is actually a troublemaker. What does he do? He goes and punches for workers who moussaka Allah He was a punches are struck this man with his fist that's a punch. Yes, for kawaii and this is Egyptian died, right? When we think about Muhammad

00:56:26--> 00:57:05

Ali's punch to Sonny Liston like one punch knockout, right? Or, you know, I'm any great fighter and whatnot. But this is more satisfying one punch and you die. So this is how strong he was. Again, I tell you another tangent that Allah does not praise muscles, physical strength, he praised his wisdom and knowledge. Just like with the use of you might remember the same thing unless once I praised his wisdom and knowledge, they didn't praise His physical beauty. Okay, even though those are praiseworthy things, but those are praiseworthy, when coupled with wisdom and knowledge, power is praiseworthy when coupled with wisdom and knowledge. And that is something that's quite

00:57:06--> 00:57:50

fascinating how the Quran focuses on that Muslims in trouble because now he knows these people who can stand him, right? Who can stand him now they want, they might get a reason to actually persecute him, right? Imagine the Israelite is growing up in the Palace of the pharaoh protected by the Queen herself. Okay. And this is like, you know, he it's like, he's rubbing their nose in the dirt every time he's like every day he exists. Okay, so most of the lesson is now he starts to recognize this is not going to be a good thing. But for us, we're having Medina de haut if and he was apprehensive and watchful. He said, I want to see that someone watch me what's going to happen here.

00:57:52--> 00:58:32

And that man who was quarreling, yesterday was crawling, quarreling again and somebody else most of that sounds like you're the one who's the troublemaker in the color lobby. You move in Sorry, I keep flipping the aisle. Excuse me. You are clearly a misguided man. Now musala salam says Paloma and Radha you have a Tisha biLlahi, who are dual Allahumma when he wanted to catch the one was an enemy to them both this troubling, troublemaking Israelite, this man this ungrateful. You know, punk. He gives away musar Islam he says, Hey, Moses, you want to kill me today? Just like you killed a man yesterday to read on toughsonic ama Katana Samuel Adams, you are a tyrant in the land, you don't

00:58:32--> 00:59:08

want to do things right? You're just out here, you know, using your power and abusing your power. So panela Now most of us have noticed he is in true trouble because now people are like, yep, he's the murderer. And now they're coming after him. And now they have a reason to go after him. before he even before anything else. A man comes from the far from the far side of the city. So tells him Moses, the authorities are conspiring to kill you. So leave the city the plan is already in motion. Right? They've always wanted to do it. Now they have the reason to do it. For hirogen de la comida. NASA he leave I'm one of your well wishers. A last part I look at this by the way, when you are in

00:59:08--> 00:59:55

trouble, Allah will always provide you his help. Most of us got help from this man, this anonymous man who came in warm Mussa, they're coming for you moose or run away right now. Right? Had he not warmed him? Maybe moose, I would have thought let me go back to the palace. Let me quickly grab my things and let me run away and that would have been his end. Right? What here is a man who came to rescue you will find this in your life a lot more Salam left musala salam as he reaches or as he is fleeing, he reaches all the way across Egypt, you runs all across all the way across Egypt and ends up in median. Okay, median is you know, closer to it's like across the border of Egypt towards the

00:59:55--> 00:59:57

east, you know, across

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

you know,

01:00:00--> 01:00:39

Towards the Sinai Peninsula and across that more game, that's where median is. That's where he ends up. And when he's there, he makes do okay, he makes a job in Iowa number 24 game, my Lord, I am truly in need of whatever blessing you may have. You may have sent down or you may send down to me or be in the Lima and delta la I'm in hiring for cleave whatever blessing you send down to me, my Lord, I am in desperate need of it. Please help me My Lord. Get this is a door underline this I as well make this door, especially those who are trying to get married. I'll tell you why in a bit.

01:00:40--> 01:00:51
