hamdu Lillahi wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah WA and he was happy he Mehreen As salam Wa alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu
Shala let's go ahead and get started.
I think I have to use the mic
I think it's always so hard to
I've never done this before
I gotta turn it turn
to the other side.
Very good, are figuring it out.
So we usually don't use this mic for the talks because it has the echo on it per Mohammed is hawks request.
No, no, he didn't request it but but at the same time, obviously he doesn't quite have the same
you know, so we for the talks. I particularly don't want any echo, but inshallah it's not as loud so we'll go ahead and use it today since mashallah, we have a lot of folks here today. Okay. So as I was saying Bismillah Alhamdulillah. Let's go ahead and get started in sha Allah. So continuing with our series titled illuminated where we are looking at many of the ayat in the Quran that talk about the concept of nude light, and today inshallah we're going to be looking at sudents Ibrahim, we're going to stay in Surah T Brahim. Surah. Number 14, I in number five, is still in the beginning of the sutra, where Allah subhanaw taala tells us about the Prophet Musa alayhis salam. And we've seen
this before where Allah subhanaw taala will reference the prophets of the past. And, you know, tell us about similarly how revelation came to them, and how that served as a light of nude, the light and the newest of eemaan for the people. So Allah subhanaw taala says, We're not going to honor Salah Musa Biya Tina, that indeed We sent Moses with our signs. And this refers to a lot of the different miracles and the different signs the message that the Prophet Musa alayhis salam was sent with our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was similarly given many signs and miracles as well to help him communicate the message and to help convince the people have the truth of the message. The
interesting thing, where whenever we're going through these verses, I'd like to kind of touch on a couple of the nuances to find our points. What's very fascinating and unique is that the signs the miracles of the Prophet Musa alayhis salam were things of a more physical nature, miracles of a more physical nature, the Prophet Musa Ali Salam had a staff that would turn into a serpent, and then the serpent when he would grab it would return back to being a staff. The Prophet Musa alayhis salam would take his hand, and he would press it under his arm, and when he would bring it out, it was glowing. The Prophet Musa alayhis salam when he preached to fit our own and his people, and they
initially would not listen even and even give it a chance to message that different miraculous things started to occur that in the Quran talks about it for so not only can we do fun, there were torrential storms that did not desist until they came to Musa alayhis salam. And they said, okay, okay, we'll listen to what you have to say, just please make this stop. First, I'm not able to find out while Gerrard that there was an infestation of locusts. Well, come on, there was an infestation of lice and other kinds of, you know, bugs and pest, what the Father an infestation of frogs, what dumb, all their water was turning to blood. Right. So there were all these signs, miracles of a more
However, with our Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, there were some of these miracles and signs of a physical nature, particularly amongst them. There's a there's a category which is called tuxedo LED. This was a common reoccurrence in the life of the prophet salatu salam, and that was there would be something very scarce. And it was a miracle of the prophets, Allah determined that he would pray he would make dua and he would ask Allah and that little bit would become a lot. Right fame. Many famous stories that we've all heard of the bowl of milk with Abu Zubaydah is barely enough milk for one person to drink. The prophets Allah invites over 70 companions, they are all able to drink
to drink from it to their
Will and there's still milk leftover. So there were miracle physical miracles of this nature. However, in large part, the miracles of the prophets, Allah, the miracle of the Prophet Joseph was not of a physical nature per se, but it was more of a miracle of Revelation. The Quran is the ultimate miracle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. That something so remarkable, so astounding, so breathtaking, so powerful. I mean, you can summarize it by saying, God is talking
for Allah to speak, and to send his words to the creation
and allow the creation to interact with something divine, his speech, his words, that's the great miracle of the process. And unless the poet says, John Wu and Bill iOttie fan Summit, would you not be keen to have enough at one study me
that he says that the prophets came with their miracles, but when those prophets departed, those miracles also departed. But you came with a book that will never expire that will never leave.
And so that is the miracle of the Quran. And that's so here, I attina it says the signs of Allah, for us to sign that's why the verses of the Quran are called is not the same word for miracle, the same word for signs, because these are the ultimate signs in the ultimate miracles that we've been given. So Allah then tells us that we sent to the Prophet Musa alayhis salaam, with the signs in the miracles and what was the purpose? What was the objective? What was the mission? What was the goal and rich karma coming of the lumati Elan knew
that remove your people extract your people pull the people out from the layers and layers and layers of darkness that they are buried under.
And bring them into the singular glowing illumination, the light of faith and Iman.
And then Allah subhanaw taala says something very interesting. He says, well, that good home, be a yummy Allah
and remind them and I'm going to translate it here literally for a moment. And then I'll explain what it means. And then Allah told the prophet Mousavi, some remind them remind the people, your people of the days of God,
the days of God, what does that mean? Right. So
many of the Vaseline and the scholars explain it.
I felt that if Imam even cathedra Allahu Taala he wrote on this very eloquently.
And he says,
with a good home, be near me here, let him remind them of the days in which they experienced the great blessings of God.
Chi Raji he he Yahoo ministry frown. How he pulled them out of the servitude and the slavery the clutches of fit on what God he was told me, he watched me
and he rescued them from the oppression of fit home, and the
divine violence of fit own. We're in je Yahoo and I do with him. And he rescued them. From not only Pharaoh but also the enmity, the animosity, the anger of Pharaoh. What Kulfi he lamented Bara and how he split an ocean. He split the sea for them so that they could walk through on the floor of the ocean.
What does leave me He got one bill, her mum, and when they were walking through the desert, with no end in sight, nowhere to take refuge that Allah sent in clouds to cover them so that they would be comfortable as they made their truck. We're in Italia. aligment Medina was Silva when they were wandering through the desert.
And there was no not there are no natural resources, no food that Allah subhanaw taala sent down food from the heavens to feed them every single day.
Illa Hadees Ali Camino Nyan and the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala go on and on and on.
That's it. There's a similar narration as well from our deliberate Ibis in a way you have no god that the prophets a lot he said them explained himself. He said well, that kid obey Yeah, Milla Binney, I'm Allah, He terracotta Allah, that these are the blessings of Allah.
And so right here is the first point that I want to make here today is that we're talking once again about this concept of coming out of the darkness and coming into the light.
Being able to capitalize and capture the illumination that faith provides
But the first step of doing that is, the very first step is you have to become cognizant, you have to become aware, you have to remind yourself of your blessings.
That as long as a person lives and exists in the state of frustration, as long as a person lives continuously in this state of ingratitude,
just not satisfied, not content, not happy. There's a kind of misery that overtakes a person, when a person who is not aware not cognizant of their blessings, and they can take a moment to slow things down, sit and reflect and realize how blessed they are. There's a kind of misery that takes over. And that misery leaves a person in the darkness. It's a wall that you have put up between yourself and the light, that the light is shining right outside of that wall. But I can't seem to get through. But that wall is not put there by anyone else other than yourself. And so that's why Allah subhanaw taala told Mousavi salaam, you have to bring them out from the darkness into the light. But
what they have to do is they have to remember the blessings of Allah.
They have to remember the blessings of Allah, that's their job. And then once they realize the blessings of Allah, that's the opening of the door, they've opened the door, now you can walk them through the door, but you got to get up and open the door.
And then Allah subhanaw taala reminds us in the FIE Danika the ITIL equally suberin chakra is the eloquence of the Quran, how Allah subhanaw taala summarizes everything up so beautifully so succinctly. So precisely. Allah says that, indeed in this, there are eye opening realizations, like this can change your life.
But you have to embody two qualities, two characteristics. And that is the bar and shockula right and both of these are what we call is one mobiola. Right? These are the these are emphatic nouns, it means that you have the first one somebody comes from somebody, you know, somebody means to be patient, right to have some restraint. But it's saying somebody's not, don't just be patient, be very patient,
have a lot of restraint, be resilient. And then shellcode comes from Sucre, which means to be grateful to have gratitude. But it's not just saying, just simply have gratitude, saying be extremely grateful, and a little nuances. Sebata means to be very patient. shellcode means to be constantly grateful.
And in that is a promise of Allah that Allah will not test you often. But when he does test, you, hold your tongue.
Allah will not test you, there will be more blessings and there are hardships, there will be more good times and there are bad times.
We're not prophets. We're not prophets. We don't have that kind of expectation of us. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was blessed with seven children.
He buried six of his seven children.
Six of his children died in his lifetime.
Those are prophets.
Ibrahim Ali Salam was being told leave your family in the middle of nowhere. Then he's being told sacrifice your son.
Then he's been in before that he was told you're gonna be thrown into a fire.
Let's see how you handle it. Subhan Allah, those are prophets.
Right Musa Ali Salam, there's an ocean in front of him and an army behind him.
Death seems inevitable. And Allah says walk into the ocean until the water reaches your knees, and then say Bismillah and tap the water with your stick.
Walk into the court of one of the most vicious, oppressive, tyrannical,
barely human individuals that has ever lived
and walk up to him
and tell him that he's wrong.
In his face like this point out and say you are wrong.
Those are prophets. Allah will not tell us like that.
So Allah says, there won't be many moments where you have to practice patience. But when those moments come far and few between, be very patient,
but blessings all the time.
So constantly be grateful constantly be grateful. Every day, five times a day.
Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen.
reflect and think on
Your blessings and thank Allah for your blessings. And to conclude,
they're all mentioned a couple of things. There's a beautiful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the Emerald movement, clearly he adjuvant
there's many there's a few different variations of this in the adjuvant Umbrella Movement in in Umrah, hula hula who hate
la Yatta the Allahu La hookah Illa Khanna hate
that the affair of the believer the life of a believer is a remarkable thing.
It's a remarkable thing. Why everything that Allah decides for the believer is good for him.
Everything that Allah decides for this Muslim is good for him or
in a Saba to see the raw for Saba kind of heightened level. If Allah has decreed that some hardship should come to his or her life.
They practice patience and that is beautiful that is good for them. Why not Saba to sutra and if Allah has decreed that something good something easy occurs in their life shook out on a kind of heightened level. They are grateful and that is good for them. But Allahu Taala he said, Yeah, I'm gonna have to do I've been doing now I'm gonna have to die me I'm allowed to do
that the best servant of God
is the slave of Allah the servant, either Julius savara. Whenever he or she is tested, they are strong, they are resilient, they are patient, what are you that are what you that are to your chakra, and when they are given something than this Al Hamdulillah and they thank Allah. So may Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to constantly reflect on and remember the blessings of Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala give us strength and resilience in our faith. And may Allah subhanaw taala illuminate us with the with the light and the new everyman May Allah give us the ability to practice everything we've said and heard Subhanallah he will be humbly he Subhanak alone, we have
