or visit any ailment or visit any element or visit any Allah? Allah. Allah Allah my doctor who Salah wanted to either sheet Asara. We're continuing on with the Seattle School of Baja, and with the scene in which the dialogue between Musa alayhis salam Haruna a Salam on the one side and Pharaoh is now at its climax or its height. Now they're really getting to the point what should we do about this? You have a message and your message is basically contesting my entire dominion. This is the idea that we're only taking home now. So Allah subhana wa tada says that well aka the arena, Tina Kula haka. dibawa, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that we showed this man we showed fit around at the
hands of her own and Musa alayhis salam. We showed him all of our signs, okay, what he means by that is all the signs that were given to musala serum, so that people would then accept Islam except their faith and submit to what Allah subhana wa tada had sent to Musa of commandments, such as letting go of the Israelites, right. So there are nine signs that Allah subhanho wa Taala had given Musa Elisa, two of which Allah already discussed in the surah, one of which was the staff or the stick of Musashi Sam, when he threw it, it became into escape snake and the other one was when the end of musasa as he pulled it out from under his right armpit it would become white and then vice
versa, it would become back to its normal complexion yet again. Right? So those are two signs that a lot already discussed. And of course Musashi ceram showed them to fit around as well. But there are nine signs altogether nine signs. So Allah subhana wa tada says, I showed him all of the signs, whenever the arena iottie, Nakuru Kula, we showed all of our signs to fit our own focus about what other and despite that he ended up denying the message of the messenger. And he ended up What about and he rejected everything right. He rejected everything that the messenger had brought to him on he said, a gitana need to create gentlemen or Lena Erica Moosa. So he said to musala ceram that have
you come to us so that you may lead us out of our land, with your setup so that you may drive us out of our dominion, I've got all of this land, what have you and how to integrity mentality, these are the and how they flow from right below me This is a person who is a tyrant believes everything in his dominion is actually his ownership. He doesn't understand that, in fact, in the grand scheme of Allah subhanho wa Taala, he himself is even all owned by Allah Xhosa, right? This is this tyrant that Musa alayhis salam is facing. So he says, Do you want to lead us out of our Dominion with your said, Why? The sacred because he's afraid that these signs if people are able to get rid of it, and
people are able to see them and view them, they may end up truly believing Musa alayhis salam to be the messenger. And there goes the dominion of this particular tyrant. And this particular thing, by the way doesn't change till today, those people who happen to be tyrants, who oppress their people regularly, who oppress, do act in very unjust ways towards the people who happen to be civilians living within their lands, within the lands that they think are their lands. They're all the lands of Allah azza wa jal, they always have this fear that maybe there'll be an uproar and uprise and there goes their entire entire kingdom.
The same thing that I was afraid of that Do you really want us to have you brought this set this magic over here so that you may drive us out of our lands and there was no secret of course moosari salaam staff, the stick literally turned into a snake his hand literally became white and his and literally became the original complexion again, and the other signs as well. There was no setup. He thought it was said, because the people of Musa the people have thrown the people who he used to. He used to keep under his care if you would like to call it that, right? Those people were really advanced in terms of magic, okay, magic was a trade that that they knew really, really well right.
Every single nation had something that they used to be very good at. So the messenger would be given something that that basically outdid them in whatever they happen to be good at musala Sara was given things which appeared to be magic, but magic simply makes you look makes makes it appear before you that such and such thing as converted into such and such, that particular person, his body has been cut into half or so on and so forth. Magic simply makes it appear like that. That's an appearance, it's a show masani ceram staff literally turned into a snake his hand literally became white, and so forth. So though he thinks it's magic, and he wants to explain it away like that, it
is actually beyond magic. It is much greater than that. It is a true miracle from Allah azza wa jal. So this is the miracle that was given to Moses. And these are some of the miracles that were given to society set up to show the inability of the Sahaba of the magician's of that time, so that other people say, Well, now this person is even greater, right? What he must have is actually in fact, much greater than what the magician's that we thought were very, very great and the soothsayers that we thought were very, very great. He has something greater than all of them, right? Similarly, the prophet does send them was given the Quran which happens to be a linguistic miracle because the
Arabs, the one thing they used to boast about, they were nomadic, they had nothing but the one thing they used to boast about was the Koran, what was their language, their ability to express themselves and so forth and their, their rhetorical culture that they had, they used to boast about their language, and they knew that they had really outdone rhetorically speaking a number of different pretty much the entire world at that specific moment in history. So Allah gave a miraculous quarter on which the linguistic miracles of which till today people continue to discover and find this is the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala in every single way, shape, or form a login each each messenger
a miracle, which would be suitable for his times, of course, not what art is suitable for all times. Because language is something that people will boast about across cultures and every single time and Allah subhanho wa Taala made it so that nobody can come close to the rhetorical power that is within the Quran.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says that again, quoting your own fellow Natty and mcebisi mythri he thinks it's magic. So he says, definitely and of assurity felanitx dn Naga lam tokat, right. Naruto kita. Akira, known of emphasis Lamb of emphasis, we will shortly bring to you a noon at Tokyo tequila, not just new Tokyo, not just known of emphasis known of great emphasis. So there's three emphatic instruments over here that we will definitely have assurity and most definitely bring to you what we're going to bring to you a magic that is even greater, or at least equivalent to what you have brought this admittedly, a magic which happens to be equivalent to your magic. Third, your Albanian
Anna, are they in a coma?
So make a memory make a an appointment between us and between yourself that we're not neither of us neither party is going to do it love of neither of the two parties is going to
is going to not come to this meeting. Okay. So you have a meeting, you have to make it to that meeting, you have a promise, you have to make it to that promise. So he says none of us are going to overlook this meeting. We're all going to make it to this meeting. All right. No clue. No wanna enter McCarran sua neither are we going to skip the meeting nor are you going to skip the meeting we are going to make it to the meeting the place that should be appointed time and the appointed space okay, more it means the appointed time and also the appointed space, the place. So wherever you decide, I'm going to be there Moosa, that's what is basically saying.
McGann and Sua Emma can, which happens to be Sua, what is swarming? Now, normally, when you're let's say both of you are living, you have an appointment with someone and
both of you have a reason to meet that at that point, right.
You're going to decide on a place which has equal distance between yourself and the other party, right?
So let's say one person lives lives in one end of Toronto, and the other person lives in the other end of Toronto. You know, you guys are going to decide in a meeting ground or a meeting point, which is the middle comfortable for both parties. So that's pretty much what the only thing you decide on a point you decide on a place and make sure that McEwan happens to be sua
abana Ghana Halevy balderton suon. By interface in ACI Ilana will vizury we found our father he had he had stationed himself in a place which happened to be su one but you know, facing ACR Ileana will vizury which happened to be equal between the between the land or between the stations of base or Ilan a tribe and also between a visitor as well. So it had to be it was an equal spot, that's the point. So when it means a point that is between us, so this is point A and this is this is point A and this is point B. So I would be right over here, okay. So decide on a point in which neither one of us has to go further than the other. So musala ceram, decided, he gave him an even more
comfortable decision than what he had asked for. He decided on a day in which he will be out anyways. Okay. And that is the day of Xena the day of festival. They used to have a festival known as Yama, Xena the day of beauty that they are beautification. Now, of course, on festive occasions, people end up gathering together perhaps in one place, a lot of people in one place, right? So there's going to be very large, very large crowd people already be out so they won't have to go out of their way there already be a day off work. So so to say, right, so all of those things will already be there. It will be the perfect time to get together and do this particular do this
particular challenge. And and come to terms with this particular challenge where that I want to say I'm going to bring something similar to your to your magic and moosari ceramah saying, I'm not really doing magic, this is a miracle from Allah subhana wa tada to prove my profit, right. So he says Carla Marie tokuyama, Xena, you're married and our appointment and the time of that appointment, he's going to give the time as well by the way, your appointment happens to be the day of Xena the day of beauty. Now some said this is happens to be the deal of actual law. And other said that happens to be another day. Anyways, whatever happened to be in that
culture, the culture of fear own, and so on and so forth that this particular day was a festive occasion whether it was a day of shoot or happened to be another day, that's not necessarily important. And Allah subhanaw taala just told us, it's the Alma Xena, it's the day of beauty, which was a festival known to them, right? And what's the time now now he's already given a place, he's given the date, the date, and also he's naturally given the place as well, because there was one specific location in which people will gather on the day of Xena, right? Till today on certain celebrations. People have a certain city know that they'll have to be in Times Square in order for
them to, you know, take part in the party that's going to occur on such and such date on perhaps New Year's Eve and, and so on and so forth. So people know that on this occasion in this day, this is where people are jamming. This is where the party is happening. Yo, Xena, everybody knew this is where people are party. This is where it's all going to take it take effect this is and now he give a time as well. You can give a morning time you can get given evening time. Remember, they don't necessarily have the same sort of lights that we have today. Right? So considering that Musa alayhis salam picked the perfect type time, not too early, not too late.
He didn't pick it too late. Why? Because then they wouldn't be left there wouldn't be so much time left in the day. He didn't pick it too early, because people will be sleeping at that time. So he said, Well, shower nozzle Doha and I'm going to give you a time for loha, which basically is after the sun rises by 1520 odd minutes. That's what happens. A Buhari starts right after sunrise. Whereas aloha starts 1520 minutes after sunrise, which is basically shuru time in your calendars and your prayer calendars. Right. So he gave him a time which is very easy, which is very comfortable. People have you know, people have already woken up, people have already perhaps had breakfast and they've
already had ample time to arrive to the location of this contest or this competition, or this challenge that I want is made to musasa or NASA so that people would literally go through a hash of which means a wretched resurrection, or gathering a large amount of gathering. They come at a time of the house so did all of the other things that they may be occupied with that stuff. So figure out what is the de facto one
aka husa mata. So for our That's it, he's like okay Carlos The challenge is done. It's made, he turned away though ally turned back and he collected his plot meaning he, you know, he asked all of the best Sahara that he knew all of the best magicians that he knew asked about the town of who is is it that can help him in order for him to win in this challenge, and so on and so forth. And the numbers vary. The numbers vary from 70 odd to 900,000 different magicians, a very, very large amount of people basically right that he gathered in order for him to try to win the challenge
for Gemma Qaeda, so he gathered his plot through my dad then he came on the day of, of Xena on the day of the festive occasion. Carl Allahu Musa, Musa alayhis salam spoke to them. Now what's happening? All of these magicians are standing before musasa. Now it's the date of Xena. Now it's the day of that celebration or that festive occasion or that festival? and so on and so forth. People have already had their breakfast have already reached this challenge. Now, is that the Zero Hour right? So now is the time in which people will figure out whether Musa alayhis salam is telling the truth already, by the way. The historians have it that the Dawa, the call of Musa alayhis salam
had already circulated within. within the society people already knew there was someone called Musashi Sarah. And there was someone called How to Sell them and that they're claiming that they are in fact, profits. And they are in fact messengers. So this claim already became popular and famous. So this was not something that was a mystery to them. And they were definitely very, very keen on attending this challenge. Because this challenge would either lead to the loss of Moosa and his Dara or the wind of Messiah and his Dawa, and then obviously, the loss of your home. So musala sam speaks to all of these magicians, because the magicians, this is their art fair, our may or may not be able
to confuse other people within society. But the magician's they know what they're doing, whether it's right or wrong, they know whether they're just making it appear as if this happens to be a snake, right? Or whether they are actually taking this stuff and turning it into a snake. They know that, right? Because there's something called illusion as well. So you can make illusionary
form of magic as well if he appears that way, but it really isn't right. And there's many forms of magic like
they call it sleight of hand and so on and so forth. So it may have appeared to them, as if the staff is truly turning into a snake but that's just appearance it appears that way. However, magicians know what sleight of hand and what's real transformation of a staff into a snake they can see that so he started giving Dawa to the magicians who will definitely know what they will see today. Barletta whom he said to them musasa to them welcome whoa to you. Oh magicians. Laughter Oh Allah La he Khadija Don't be lying upon Allah subhana wa tada laughter Oh Allah He can diva. Don't be fabricating lies upon Allah subhanho wa Taala for use hater cumbia da because if you fabricated
lie upon Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah will destroy you with a punishment. Allah will annihilate you with a punishment. A lot will finish you off with chastisement well by the hardware manufacturer, and that person who lies the person who fabricates he will always be indefinitely of assurity be at loss as well. So this is the this is the message of Musa alayhis salam first and foremost, telling the magicians not to be liars, right? Because one of the things magicians are really good app is is lying. Many times they'll harm someone and do something and this not the other and they will lie internally they feel what they're doing is wrong, but they will continue to lie. So lying is part
and parcel of magical culture to begin with. What if it's sleight of hand and you're telling people this actually happened that in of itself is a lie right. So lying is part and parcel of magical culture. So he knows the right thing to get to and the right dollar to given the right point to share and that is stop lying and if you lie, then you will always be at loss and definitely over surety be at loss. Right? You know, the last part of this verse weapon harbor manif Tara, this is a golden principle. You know, in the Koran, sometimes Allah subhana wa tada finishes off the statement with a principle, okay, as opposed to talking about the idea, particularly that particular object or
that incident itself, or law sometimes gives us a general principle within the law. So this is one of those general principle principles within the law. Perhaps this was from the statement of law
Sally Sara, to the magicians and perhaps this was a completion a deal by Allah subhanho wa Taala for the statement of musasa wattpad hada Manifesto. In either case, the statement says the person who lies they are definitely a loss. So no matter how witty you think you are, if you're lying in one way or another people are going to find out that you're lying and when they do, you will be at last whether you thought you won, or you thought you did it right. You will always be at last. This is the principle in the Quran, right? People sometimes lie to their bosses at work people sometimes lie to their teachers people sometimes lie to their spouses. Eventually, Allah subhana wa tada reveals
their lies. Eventually Allah subhanaw taala unveils their plots. Eventually Allah subhana wa tada shows their realities, and they will be at last that people who lie and fabricate in this life and they will be at loss in the hereafter as well. And that's why the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the cerca de COVID
de la Jana, when you do your job and the law has deepened when I resigned over Judo, yet the hadrosaurid kata had a job and the law is that a truth? Full word a true Word, it leads a person to goodness and piety. And the piety leads a person to Jenna. And if a person continues to be truthful, Allah Subhana Allah will consider it an acidic, which means the extremely truthful person. And similarly the prophets, I'll send them continued and he said, we're in El kariba de la Fuu. We're in del Fujiwara de la when I azada virtual reality will Hector Victor Bangalore Hey, Gavin, that indeed the Kevin the lie, it leads a person to evil acts, you know, good deeds lead you to more good deeds.
Similarly, evil deeds lead you to more evil deeds. It's like a slope, when you start going down one direction, it's hard to come back up to the peak. And that's the justice, that's the, the peak is that area, which is flat, which is, which is basically the plane in which you want to stand, right.
And if you and I'm talking about the peak, undecided, which happens to be evil, okay, so if you go down the direction of evil, then what's going to happen, you're not going to be able to come back up very easily. Right. Now, however, on the other side of the plane, on the other side of this peak, if you go down, then that is definitely good, because you're going to be led to another good deed and another good deed, another good deed and so on and so forth. And all of these deeds, they will pretty much encircle you. And once they circle you they become like a barrier between you and evil. And that's why when you pray a lot what happens that Allah subhana wa tada said in the Koran and not
Salatin, and in fact, Yahuwah Mancha, indeed, prayer stops a person from evil and from obscene things as well. So it acts as a barrier between you and your between between you, you and evil deeds. And similarly evil deeds act as a barrier between yourself and goodness as well. So if you fall down this direction, then you are in the evil direction, and it's going to be very hard for you to get right back up to the peak so you can start going down the right direction. If you go down this direction, then you will be preserving yourself and protecting yourself from the from the evils I ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect you and I from evil. I mean, you're a bit adamant, and that's
why the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Al Qaeda the lying is going to lead you to evils are in the future, yada yada yada yada now, and evil deeds are going to lead you to Hellfire, ask Allah subhana wa tada to protect you and I from hellfire. And the Prophet continued and he said, once a person lies second time, third time and the person continues to lie. Allah subhana wa Taala ends up writing this person in his scrolls as a job as a regular liar, right? As a person who happens to be a a perpetual liar. I asked him muscle panel with Allah to protect us in yada yada mean,
Allah continued and he said what are the harbormaster Ah, so, this person who lies he becomes at loss in this life and he becomes at loss in the hereafter as well. And the prophets or send them said to us in a hadith when caca la Mata Mata Ramadan, forget about the human enough whoever lies upon me intentionally then let him take up a place in Hellfire, let them take up an abode in Hellfire let him secure for himself and abode in hellfire. So a liar upon Rasulullah saw Selim secures for himself a seated Hellfire, I ask Allah subhana wa tada to protect and preserve all of us within this life as well. One day or another people will figure out that you're lying and that's it.
That boss who you are lying to all of your life now figured it out. When he figured it out. That's the end of your job, the spouse that you've been lying to throughout your life, perhaps you lose their trust.
Once the trust is lost in a relationship, that's the end of the relationship as well.
So this person who lies That's it, he's lost it. He's lost the plot. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect you and I. So the message to take home here is that never to lie because this is the golden principle never to lie. Even if the situation happens to be bad, you don't lie. You know why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in the Quran, oh, who you believe, Fear Allah wa uno, Conan sadita and say the straight out word, you know, sometimes speaking straight out is very difficult. It's very difficult. Why? Because you're afraid that that person happens to be in a position for him to actually affect your life negatively. But you when you feel that you have to remember that Allah
is in a position to always make any negative situation positive. Because Allah subhana wa tada is the one who's controlling all affairs, even the action of the one you who you may be fearing. When you speak the straight outward. Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in the Iraq War uno, de de de la comme Allah, Allah will reform your affairs for you. So justice, truthfulness, just as lies end up leading you to destruction to Habiba to a loss. Similarly, Allah subhana wa tada taught us in the Quran, the truthfulness and being straight out leads you to having your affairs reformed people end up resulting to lie lies because they think through the line they'll be able to fix this situation.
Allah subhanaw taala said no, through the lies, you'll mess the situation up further through truthfulness, you'll be able to fix the situation. Even if you think through your finite vision of the world that if I tell the truth, things will go wrong. Allah subhanaw taala is telling you know, if you tell the truth, things will go right. They will be in your favor and even if they don't happen to be Allah subhana wa tada will if he places you through our test, he will reward you greatly. And Allah Subhana Allah will fix up your situation as well. Well, although Poland sadita
Allah come, Allah will reform your affairs for you. Well, yeah, good luck on google.com and also Allah Subhana Allah Allah will forgive your sins for you. I asked Allah subhana wa Taala to reform our affairs and forgive our sins jacamo Lohan and for listening. What's on the law while sad now Mohammed didn't want it. He was so happy ah man
