bestows prophethood upon him and gives him the miracles, the marches out the miracles that he has in order to be able to captivate his audience.
And Allah then gives him maybe one of the toughest tasks, maybe after our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the toughest task that's ever been given to anyone. And that is it. Have you left your honor in a hotel on the go and deliver the message to the pharaoh because he has completely crossed all limits and boundaries.
Musa alayhis salam, Praise to Allah in that moment. He asks Allah subhanaw taala rubbish rally Saturday, while I expand my chest, we get silly, Emery and facilitate my task. My job for me was that Emily's honey, remove the knot from my tongue. You have a hook only in Allah allow them to understand what I'm saying, which only was Ramona Haley, and grant me an assistant and aid a companion on this journey. Haruna ahi my brother Harun wish to be as real Ashley Kofi Emery that strengthen me through his support and allow him to share in this responsibility with me.
This is a huge ask.
And what's really remarkable in this passage is Allah subhanaw taala then system was Adi Salam. That caller for the OTT Musa
Welaka manana Alikum, rotten okra
that this is we think about Allah is telling Mousavi so I'm thinking about everything we've done for you up to this point is Ohana Illa. Omega you have we saved your life. You were a baby, they were massacred and killing the babies. And we put it in your mother's heart and gave her the strength to be able to put you inside of a basket and float you down a river. And we made you arrive safely onto the banks of the river and to be scooped up and picked up by none other than our enemy and your enemy Pharaoh the same one who wanted to massacre and kill you.
And then we allowed you to grow up there protected safe and sound. But then we sent your sister at your on your heels to come and find you where you had landed. And then we made it so that you would not nurse as a baby from anyone to your sister was able to step in and say I have a suggestion of someone that can take care of this baby for you. And that's how we reunited you with your mother
and made it so that she was being compensated for taking care of her own baby. And we put you back into the lap of your mother back with your family, while at the same time under the protection of the same person who's trying to kill you. We did all of this for you.
Now normally, if we if I ask a person, hey, can you do this for me? And they say well I've done this and I've done that and I've done this and I've done that and I've done all of this for you. That's usually code for no
but Allah subhanaw taala says Allah duty to suit like I am Musa.
Allah did not say no Allah so we are going to give it to you everything you asked for we're gonna give it to you.
But Allah subhanaw taala said also, keep in mind how you got to here to this point. And one of the lessons that I learned from here that he MAMARAZZI Rahim Allahu Taala explains, is that when dealing with Allah subhanaw taala it's very important that we are mindful and aware of the blessings of Allah, and how we've gotten to where we are right now.
But rather than for that to make us reluctant or hesitant or shy, to ask Allah for more, to ask Allah for maybe the biggest thing we've asked for up until now, rather, that should further encourage us. And that should further inspire us to ask from Allah.
That all the blessings of Allah in our life up until this point are not points against us. They are actually that they are all evidences of the fact that we are dealing with the Most Merciful. They were dealing with the most kind, and that He has blessed us and continues to bless us and will continue to bless us, as long as we sit before him kneel before Him with our hand spread out in front of him.
And so I want each and every one of us to reflect on how we've gotten here tonight.
Everything that's happened in our lives to get us to this point right here right now.
Everything that brought us here, and everything that we've been through, and everything that we've encountered and everything that we've endured
Do an all the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that's carried us to this point right here.
And as we were sitting here on this last night of the month of Ramadan
we don't feel shy we don't feel embarrassed we don't feel afraid to ask more. But rather we are encouraged and inspired to ask Allah subhanaw taala for more than we ever have before
and that we will completely pour our hearts out to Allah subhanaw taala and ask Allah subhanaw taala for everything in anything, and for the ultimate of blessings. And that's what I'd like to highlight here tonight as a conclusion in solidity as seen sugar number 36 in AI number 55 Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the US Hi Belgian Natalio Murphy surely in fact the one
that the inhabitants of paradise today
Imam will put it to be Rahim Allahu Taala mentioned that Allah uses this device of a loom to make us close our eyes and picture ourselves there at that moment.
Imagine you are witnessing paradise right now.
That the people in paradise today right now. Fie chauvelin They are completely lost and indulged in every kind of indulgence activity hobby enjoyment pleasure that you can ever imagine.
The opposite of this world. Thank you whom and they are enjoying it endlessly like true pleasure true bliss. Home was watching
but not alone.
Because enjoying yourself and engaging in all kinds of activity is fun. Do it too long for by yourself and you're kind of weird.
So Allah subhanaw taala says whom was Roger whom? All right, them and their companions fieldly lol him sitting under the shades of these big beautiful trees. Allah Allah icky on recliners.
Mutsuki own leaning back reclining, relaxing.
La houfy fee halfback, he had one. Well let him make it their own. And there are all kinds of fruits meaning food for them to enjoy reserve for them there. Well, who might get their own and whatever else they could ever possibly ask for. The sky is literally the limit. As a The sky's the limit, because there's a narration that even if I give it to him, Allahu Taala mentioned and how do you love Wi Fi Villa de la ilaha illa Allah, he mentioned that the person will be lying there reclining in Paradise, and he'll see this bird flying over him and he will look at it and you will think
Yum, right? Very natural thought. Right? You see a burden and you say, I wonder what that would taste like, right?
So this person will see this bird and immediately like in an instance, like It's unfathomable to us in an instance that bird will then be completely cooked and ready sitting in front of the person.
And that person will then enjoy it so literally the sky's the limit.
But then the greatest blessing of all, Allah subhanaw taala says tonight number 58 Suleiman hola Mira Mira.
And then while they are enjoying themselves and enjoying the company in the pleasure and enjoying all the food and the fruits and everything and anything that they could ever possibly desire, then announcement will be made and they will all the inhabitants of paradise we'll hear that their Lord Almighty Allah subhanaw taala he himself will say salam to them.
Peace be upon all of you. Salam, O Allah Mirabell Rahim and this is a message from your most Merciful Lord.
Psalm on this night, we ask Allah and this is maybe the biggest means of attaining peace and tranquility and
serenity and salvation is for us to learn to ask Allah subhanaw taala to make dua to Allah, to beg of Allah to pray to Allah. And so we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us from the people of Paradise, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to reunite us with our loved ones in paradise. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the highest stages in paradise. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the companionship of the prophets who loves them paradise and may Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst the people who will hear our Lord welcome us and greet us and say salaam to us in paradise.

wanted to cripple us? We don't want it to debilitate us. We don't want it to distract us. But rather let's be hopeful that sometimes even an instance a one single, sincere tear before Allah subhanaw taala, one single moment of repentance, our heart connecting to Allah.
