Hola. Hola. Hola my doctor who sat out into your other Husna either shooter salah, welcome every everyone to the second part of surah Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, Well hell attack a hadith of Musa
did the news of Musa alayhis salam come to you did the news of the speech of Musa alayhis salam come to you did the news of the affair of Musa alayhis salam come to you? And what's this news and we said the first part of SUTA was related to the Quran. And now the second part is related to the story of Musa alayhis salam. And that also is divided into two parts, the story of Musa alayhis salam, which is, which we'll be discussing today and another story which we'll be discussing in a later part of our topsy turvy, eating later. So now, remember, first and foremost, Musa Ali Salam story is mentioned in many, many parts of the Quran. Every time Allah subhanaw taala mentioned a
story of any of the messengers, he's doing so because he has a reason, there's a reason behind it, it very effectively gets a message across when it comes to the affairs that Allah subhanaw taala is already discussing. We already mentioned in the previous episode, that Allah Subhana Allah Allah was discussing the idea of the Quran that Allah hasn't revealed the Quran so that people may go through distress, right. And we also mentioned that the people of Quran they were accusing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of having gone through distress because of the revelation of the Quran upon him. Now, since the people of Quraysh, the people to whom the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa
sallam had been sent, are accusing the prophets or send them of this and they're annoying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this way, they are mocking the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in this way, Allah Subhana Allah Allah reveals the story of Musa alayhis salam to console the messenger, Allah continues that he says is run.
When Musa alayhis salam saw the fire, what's the fire, he saw a fire by
as Allah subhanaw taala will describe in a sham he was on a travel with his family from Medina to Egypt, okay. And with him was his wife and a couple of other people, His servant and so on and so forth. Or they said just his wife alone. Perhaps in either case, he was on a travel for Meridian to Egypt. And on the way he ended up losing track of the direction because it was late night and it was extremely dark. So he didn't know where exactly he is and which exact direction he should be going towards. Right. So from a distance, Musa alayhis salam he ended up spotting some fire. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada describes this particular scenario. Notice he picked off right in the middle of the
story, not from the beginning of Mussolini Saddam's life and so on and so forth.
Even though some of those events will also be mentioned over here, and highlighted over here, and this is because, as we said earlier, sometimes there is chronology of events within the stories or within the passages that Allah mentioned. But the purpose of the Quran is not that it happens to be a storybook. The purpose is so Allah subhanaw taala will give you a lesson. Whatever angle of the story is giving that lesson Allah will mention that particular angle of the story right now this particular angle of the story is where the lesson lie. So Allah is mentioning this particular part of the story. Okay, so Allah Subhana Allah says Iran, Iran remember or Muhammad when the Prophet
Musa alayhis salam saw the fire from a distance football early early. And then he said to his family on Khufu hang on over here stay over here in the earnest to now run I saw a fire from a distance now suddenly it caminhada others perhaps I'll bring some fire along with me perhaps I will take a stick and, and and use it to to ignite some fire on it, some firewood or something and bring that little bit of fire. So we have some light in the direction that we happen to be walking sadly, it caminhada Qobuz perhaps I'll bring some light along with me by going to this fire or I might find that there actually happens to be someone by the fire. It may be a campfire, there's a group of people there.
So he says oh gee to Allah, naughty wooden or I might find some guidance by this fire as well. Now this particular statement of Musa alayhis salam is extremely powerful in that Musa alayhis salam said or I might find some guidance there in what he means is or I might find a guide. But in reality, if we, as we continue reading these stories, you will realize that Allah subhanaw taala actually gave them guidance over there, in that Allah gave him the message Allah subhanho wa Taala will tell us that he has chosen him as he speaks to Musa alayhis salam. So his wordings were very were very accurate in that Allah subhanaw taala gave him the TOEFL to use the correct words because
he was actually given a certain form of guidance as he went to this fire, even though it wasn't the guidance that he was looking for. And that was someone that would give him directions to wherever he happens to want to to go. So he says, Fatima atta Allah says Farah Mata, no dar Musa. So when Musa alayhis salam actually got to this fire, which happens to be as I said, in a sham. He was traveling from Meridian to Egypt, in need another book, suddenly new dar Musa suddenly a voice screamed out or a voice said loudly yah Musa. Oh Musa. Oh Musa alayhis salam.
What is this voicing IN THE HON Kapha Nanak. I happen to be your Lord. So go ahead and take off your shoes. Why why do you have to take off your shoes? In Nicaragua? naka de Soto, you have to take your shoes off because you happen to be in a Why do you happen to be in a valley which is extremely sacred, and it is known as why the DUA it is known as throughout Allah subhanaw taala even gave the name of that ye D for for us to know exactly where Musa alayhis salam happened to be during that particular case. But one of the things you'll notice over here is that the first Adam, that Allah subhana wa Tada taught us over here is that when we end up going to sacred places then then we take
off the shoes ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada said, favela and Alec take off your shoes in Mecca. Meanwhile, mocha does itoa you happen to be in a windy you happen to be in a valley which happens to be very blessed and so on and so forth. So this is a great advocate, right? We know from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the prophets of salaam prayed Salah also would choose even though in that case, God had come down to the prophets, Islam explained to him that your shoes happened to your Shoes Shoes happen to have some filth on them. So take them off. And so the profits I'll send them took them off, right? But notice that the Prophet was wearing this in a type of
setting. In the in Medina we're in, we're in, there are no carpets, there are no none of these other type of things, right. And sometimes the people today misunderstand the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they will say, look, the Prophet was very true. So I'll bring my shoes into the message, right? That's not the case. You don't bring your shoes into the masjid and say the prophets and send them did that it's carpeted, it's clean, and and so on and so forth. And similarly, as you notice, Allah subhanaw taala taught him that as an advocate of being in a sacred place, he said in the end our book facula and Alec, so go ahead and take your shoes off in the cabin
wha didn't move but the co2 you happen to be in a body, you happen to be in a valley that is extremely sacred to one which is known by the name througha. Allah continues, and he says, what I'm after took and I have chosen
You owe Musa, I have chosen you as we said, Allah Subhana Allah Allah will choose Musa alayhis salam for the rissalah for the Prophet. So he told them now directly what I have now chosen you for my prophet hood for my message for the fact that you are now here on a messenger and the second dub that Allah subhanho wa Taala taught the Prophet Musa alayhis salam is that he said first Enya Lima, you ha, so listen up, listen carefully, right.
And this particular other is really, really, this particular etiquette, or this particular matter is really important if we actually truly want the guidance to come within our hearts and our minds. And if we actually want that guidance to affect our souls, and so forth, right, if a person is just giving some slight attention to whatever he happens to be listening to, which is known as a summer to just simply hear, right, the person is just possibly hearing something, that's one thing but if you are now sitting here, attentively, all of the other occupations, you put them aside for a second and you're listening to the guidance that has been granted to you, the type of power that you will
feel and the type of empowerment you will feel from that guidance is going to be another level right? And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala is so before even getting to other points, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada said, listen very, very carefully, firstly, Amir Lima, you you have and Allah told us that about the Quran as well, that whenever the Quran is recited for STEMI ruler who will answer to so listen to that Quran and, and also be very, very keen on following whatever you happen to be hearing implement that within your life as well. And Allah subhanaw taala said in another verse, Allah, the United States,
those people who end up hearing the Quran, and then they follow the, the best of of that those people who hear the guidance, and then they follow the best of that. So Allah is always taking us back to LST Ma, of listening, of listening or listening. So if you truly want guidance, the scholars, they said, the first portion of that guidance is in listening, you have to listen very, very carefully. We're living in a time now where everybody just wants to speak, right? Everybody just wants to talk, they don't really want to listen, you have to spend your time listening before you can actually start talking, you have to spend your time allowing for the guidance by those who
happen to be the heirs of the messenger allowing for that guidance to come within your heart in order for you to actually be able to give that guidance to other people as well. So the lesson then, within this idea is first me allow yourself to listen, take some time, hear it out. And also, before you reject something before you just, you know, choose not to accept it. Listen to the whole story. Whatever is being said to you before you jump to conclusions, listen to it. Right listen to the story of both parties. Don't just hear one side of the story and then and totally reject or totally forget the other side of the story. Listen, this is the important importance of listening that the
second etiquette that Allah teaches His Messenger is to listen. First me I email you. So listen to what is being revealed to you. And the message that Allah reveals he starts off with a simple cue, pure monotheistic message of the deen of Allah of the religion of Allah. Allah says ini and Allah,
Allah says I in fact me I am Allah in Nany and Allah I in fact me I am Allah right
now ilaha illa Anna there is no God except for me for our Bhutanese, so worship Me what ugliness salata the decree and also established a prayer for the sake of my remembrance for the sake of my mentioned, okay, so Allah subhanaw taala then starts off by giving the Prophet two advocates a take off your shoes, be be attentive. So those two advocates are actually leading us to a general theme and two angles of etiquette before we end up receiving guidance. The first thing is an external etiquette and that is that we prepare ourselves externally. So taking off the shoes was amongst the etiquettes that the Prophet Musa Ali salaam was given, eat prepare yourself externally, get yourself
the right clothes, get yourself the right dress, take the right things off and put the right things on that's the point right externally prepare yourself for that guidance. And that's why when you believe they said on came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he came to the prophets of Salaam in close which were shady shady Dubai, all the shady Dubai all the job, right? extremely pure white clothing, right? And he had his hair done as well. Everything was perfect when you came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam right. So externally prepare yourself and internally prepare yourself as well by throwing away all other ideas which may be occupying your mind so you can
actually listen. And then for those want to give the message of Islam start off with the most simple message of Islam and that is about
Allah subhanho wa Taala that he in fact is the Lord and there is no Lord except Allah subhanho wa Taala He in fact is the deity and that there is no other deities except Allah. Allah subhanaw taala, speaking to Musa alayhis salam says in need and Allah indeed I am. Allah azza wa jal La ilaha illa Anna, there are no Gods except for me, there is no deities except for me. There is nothing worthy of worship except for me for our Bodine. We're up in salata musically now that you know that there are no deities worthy of worship except me. Then the natural consequences that you end up worshiping Me and do you do not worship anyone other than me Fabbrini so worship Me and Me alone will update will
salata Lee decree and established a prayer for my for my mentioned, there are two things over here established the prayer. So that means that other prophets have also been given the message of establishing their prayer as we know from the Sunnah as well. Well, updating of Salah Televic re established prayer for my mentioned for my remembrance, right? You know, establishing prayer is to remember Allah azza wa jal true establishment of prayer, a comma to solid, true establishment of prayer is that you ensure that you are in fact remembering Allah azza wa jal within this prayer and that's why he told even Musa alayhis salam, establish your prayer. So you remember me not to simply
do lip service to Allah subhana wa iLok see all the things that you've memorized as a child without even considering them without even pondering them without even remembering Allah? subhanaw taala in the least, right? None of that that's not the true establishment of prayer. The true establishment of prayer is that you ponder every single thing that you're saying and that will get you closer to Allah. And believe you me that will get you away from the deepest troubles within this world. If you truly establish Allah, Allah will remember you as well. And that's why the Scholars they said this idea is actually an IRA that can be interpreted in both ways, right? What does that mean? Well up
the middle Akima salata, Lee Vickery, establish your prayer for my remembrance Are you remember me within the prayer and also so that I may remember you as well? The victory so that I ended up mentioning you right? So when you mentioned allah and You truly remember ALLAH, ALLAH also remembers you. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala remembers you that those deep difficulties that are within your lives, they will be solved by simply establishing this prayer. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant you and I ease until I mean a little bit out of me. Allah subhana wa Tada continues and he says, In Assa T attune indeed the time, indeed the PSA, indeed the Day of Judgment, indeed, that
final hour is at the it's definitely coming is in fine. And that shows you how established is reality is of the day of judgment coming that it is surely definitely, without any doubts coming, indeed, the time, the Day of Judgment, the PSA, which has the Elif Lama will add that means you already know that the hour that I'm talking about, so I don't even need to tell you in the saddle Qiyamah indeed, the day or the hour of the day of judgment, I can simply say indeed, the hour is coming, because I know you know what the hour happens to be the tune, it's definitely coming. It's on its way Accardo fee, ha. It's almost as if I've hidden it, but I haven't fully hit it. What does
that mean? You see, Allah Subhana Allah Allah has in fact, hidden the actual hour, but Allah Subhana Allah Allah has given us certain, certain guidelines or Allah subhanaw taala has given us certain signs, which tells us that the day of judgment, Day of Judgment is in fact close, right? And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam When did you believe Ali salaam, he came to the prophets of Salaam? And he said Metis are when is the Day of Judgment right?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that the person who's asking is not any more knowledgeable than the one who is asked Miss school or unhappy LM I'm gonna say the one who's being asked doesn't have any more knowledge than the one who is asking but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was then asked by God, tell me of the Ummah rot tell me of the signs of the Day of Judgment. So the prophets are still and then gave a couple of signs of the Day of Judgment. And in fact, the signs of the Day of Judgment are listed there, just as they are listed in other places of, of the deen as well, just as they are mentioned in other places in the Quran, right. And they're
mentioned in the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam as well. So the this is a very, very noble science to know. And that is, because the humanity as a whole needs to be prepared for this massive event. humanity as a whole has never actually seen in any event more serious than the Day of Judgment, right. So if that's the case, then if that day of judgment happens to be coming close, that we need to start getting prepared as a humanity today, when we see signs of global warming, warming, you have global leaders from around the world getting together
to try to solve the crisis of global warming isn't that so? So if we know that the signs of Day of Judgment are is coming close, then us as humanity also needs need to start getting prepared for this Day of Judgment. Allah subhana wa Tada says in Osaka theatrum. In the SATA theater, indeed, the Day of Judgment is on its way it's coming. Okay, I do feel I'm very, it's as if I've almost concealed it as well and not fully revealed it. But some of the signs have been revealed little jaql Luna FCMB matters, so that every single soul may be given reward for what they had done and what they had undertaken within this life. And the lamb over here, Islam with Danny, the lamb over here is the
Lamb of reasoning. Okay. So what that means is Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has given you the reason for why Allah has made a day of judgment, right? Because if there was no day of judgment, there will be many, many wrongs and oppressions and injustices that would go on accounted for right, those people who think that they can do injustice and get away with it from within this world, right they can, they might be able to sometimes get away with it within this world, but know full well that Allah subhanaw taala will make those people pay on the Day of Judgment. So much so that the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, Let's do additional work, indeed have a shorty, you will give up
the rights, you will pay up the rights that you ended up violating of other people to a degree that the sheep which happens to have worn will, the cattle which happens to have one or the animal which happens to have horns, will actually pay for the injustice that it had committed by hitting one which didn't have the horns as well. That is what the prophets are setting themselves.
Right. So the injustice is the people commit against each other will be paid for and Allah subhanaw taala said, I have placed this day of judgment you do Gza called Lunasin be matassa. So that every soul will have to pay for what they have done, every soul will have to pay for the evils that they had done, every soul will be rewarded also for the good that they have done as well. So the good that you do is not God does not go and accounted for and the evil that you do does not go accounted for not in the court of Allah that may happen in this dunya. Right. And that's why those people who are very, very sincere, truly sincere, they actually have sincerity within their hearts, and they
want to gain the reward. They don't look for the reward within this world because they know every single thing they do, even in the darkness is of dark places, even in the deep areas of their houses where no one else can see them except Allah subhanaw taala They know full well, that Allah subhanaw taala will pay for that, that deed that they have to repay them for that deed, deed that they had done, compensate them for the good that they had done, right? To a degree that if a person is simply reading a book, perhaps right, and there happens to be a mistake. And I'll give you an example. This is what some of our machines used to tell us as you're reading a book, you simply see a an error a
printing error, right? Perhaps the the author made a slight printing error or the company would that was printing that made us like printing errors. Sometimes that happens ayat, or a hadith happened to be printed in accurately not that they're wrong, but the printing company did a mistake by printing it wrong. Most of the times this is not the case in massage. But in books, this does happen right? So simply by taking your pen and correcting that that would be something that will be rewarded for nobody knows that except you and Allah subhanho wa Taala but there's a reward within that. Something as simple as that can give you a reward, simply by giving someone a little more so that they can eat
a food that will be rewarded for simply by giving a cat something to eat or drink that is struggling to find that that will be remarkable simply by giving a even a dog something to eat or drink that will be considered workflow as we find find within the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, people may not see that but Allah is watching and Allah will reward you. So remember, there's a Day of Judgment fella your suit Danica and her mela Amin Obeah, whatever I Hawa HuFa Tada. So don't allow, don't allow
anyone to stop. You don't allow those people who do not believe in the day of judgment for them to stop you from this day of judgment and seeking the reward within this Day of Judgment. Why? Because those who don't believe in the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala says about them, whatever I have, well, first of those people who do not believe in the Day of Judgment, they are actually simply following their own desires, even if you prove to them with all the logic that there is a God, even if you prove to them with all the logic that there happens to be a day of judgment, even if you prove to them with all the logic that there happens to be a
Jana and there happens to be in our there happens to be paradise and there happens to be hellfire, you give them all the logical explanations there, how are their desires will overtake them, and their desires will overcome them. And that's why people who don't disbelieve in Allah, they know they can't explain all of creation with their own explanations. When they get to the end of it all. They'll say, Okay, now at this point, I'm stuck beyond this, I can't explain anymore, you have to allow me one miracle over here. All right, but we will see you to them. If you want one miracle, then give us one miracle as well. If you want one miracle to explain this particular sequences of
events that you talk about the Big Bang Theory and so forth, right? You want something to explain that? Well, what are you going to do about the next sequence of events? How are you going to explain that, or the one after that, or the one after that, you're going to need more than one miracle, all we tell you is that we believe in something that is already part and parcel of your innate nature, to which human has fine were found rest over the generations from the day of Adam, till the Day of Judgment, people have always and will continue to always find a natural inclination to believe in God. So when we believe in that we're able to explain every supernatural phenomenon within the
world, right? Doctors will tell you there's something called a sudden cure, right? Sudden cure, suddenly, a person who happens to have a very serious sickness suddenly becomes cured, okay, suddenly becomes cured. People who have been in practice in medicine, and they're true to themselves, they know that that many, many times they suddenly find themselves cured without any explanations, and they can't really explain themselves. How often do you hear of these sort of stories quite often those people who are doctors, and they have been in practice for many years, and they've seen events of such nature and full deal, they'll say this, in fact, there's complete books
written on these sudden cure experiences that people have unexplainable by medicine, Allah is there because there's people that were turning to Allah at that moment and calling to Allah doctor and they're sick person about the people who happened to be sick within their families, and they were cured. Because there is a supernatural power, there is a an infinite power. And there is an intelligent designer and there is who we like to call Allah subhanaw taala. Right, as Muslims and also Christians as well called Allah Subhana. Allah Allah as it is in the Bible, as well. So the point that I'm trying to get to is those people who don't believe in Allah subhanaw taala in
reality, and they don't believe in the day of judgment, and they don't believe in religion at all. There are Allah subhanaw taala says, What? Tada. So these people who happen to be atheist, Allah says, they are following their desires. That's all they're doing fat out of that, right?
So they end up Allah subhanaw taala says, You do not allow them to block you from belief, not in the day of judgment, and not indeed, not an Allah subhanaw taala because some of them become really, really fanatic as well. Right? They're not just about oh, I believe in. I disbelieve in God and I disbelieve in the Day of Judgment. No, this is science is proven known. It's not proven, you'd like for it to be proven, but it's not proven. Right? So they will try to bully people who otherwise do not know better and to disbelieve Allah subhanho wa Taala says, don't allow such a person to do what to allow you to disbelieve or stop you from the day of judgment and believing and hoping in the
reward of the Day of Judgment and fearing the punishment of the Day of Judgment. Allah says Fatah then you will fall now Raja Yoga means what? Raja Yoga means to fall. And Tara or ALDA, who means to make someone fall into death. And we know metaphorically and many times in the Quran, Allah refers to those who disbelieve in Allah as those who are dead in terms of their heart internally, right? So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, don't allow them to stop you from believing and hoping and fearing the Day of Judgment. Right, lest you fall also an internally spiritually die. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us His spiritual state of Eman forever and always. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us
to strengthen our belief in Allah Allah azza wa jal and the final day I asked Allah to allow us to hope for the reward and the day of judgment and fear the punishment on the day of judgment as he so pleases, or SallAllahu ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali he will be wearing
