We left off act in Assa T at an academy ofI Halle to do the cool Lunasin be madrasah follow your suit then aka anomala mean we'll be here what Deborah Hawa HuFa Tada. Now, after Allah subhana wa Allah gave Musa alayhis salam, a number of different pieces of advice. Allah subhanho wa Taala now takes it to another angle of conversation.

00:02:45 --> 00:03:25

Allah subhanho wa Taala asks Musa alayhis salam a question which to him is already obvious, which to Allah is already obvious. Allah says why matal kabhi aminika yamasa? What do you happen to have in your right hand? Oh Musa, okay, Allah subhanaw taala wants Musa alayhis salam to look at whatever is in his right hand and observe it carefully and know exactly what it is. Because Allah Subhana Allah, Allah is about to do something with whatever it happens to be within his right hand. So he tells him to look at that carefully. Even though when a person is holding something, if I hold this, for example, if I hold the most half, I know what's in my hand, right? But if I haven't seen that object

00:03:25 --> 00:03:57

within my hand for a prolonged period of time, it is possible that I may have forgotten, it is possible that I'm I may be like, well, here it is, right? Sometimes people take their glasses, put it on top of their heads and look all the all around, right. So they're looking for their glasses, even though they're right on top of their heads. Now when they find them, they are right over here. This is the glasses, right? So similarly, Allah subhanaw taala tells them look at your hand what's in there. So he looks at it. Now he's observed it he knows exactly what it is. And Musa alayhis salam takes this opportunity. He knows he's talking to Allah Allah, Allah azza wa jal, and indeed

00:03:57 --> 00:04:35

talking to Allah subhanho wa Taala is an opportunity. So when you're talking whenever a person is talking to a person of status, who holds a status in society and be also within the heart of this person as well, Allah subhanaw taala has the greatest status in the entire universe and Allah subhanho wa Taala has the greatest status in the entire existence. And Allah subhanaw taala is beyond the existence itself as well. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has the greatest status period here and Allah has a great status in the Prophet Musa and a servant's heart as well in the heart of Prophet Musa alayhis salam as well, because he is in fact a prophet. He's a chosen messenger of

00:04:35 --> 00:04:45

Allah. He's mean what do you ask me mean of Rasul the powerful amongst the messengers, right? So definitely, he has a great status in the prophets heart, and Musa alayhis, Salam czar.

00:04:46 --> 00:05:00

In fact, he has the single greatest status that is within the heart of Musa alayhis salam. So immediately, Musa alayhis salam took the same opportunity that any of us would take with those who we hold dear to us, who have a great status within our

00:05:00 --> 00:05:41

Our hearts to prolong the conversation. So he says Carla Yasay he could just simply say, Yes, I, this is my stick, but he makes a long story out of it. He says Allah He also i, this is right here. Just this is my stick at the workout where I lay her. i What do I do? I rely upon this I lean upon the stick, you know how sometimes people have a stick upon which they lean? Right? So Musa alayhis salam has the stick, he uses it to lean on it as well. Alright, and that's why you see sometimes people have piety they hold the stick with them, perhaps they're taking it from here that Musa Ali salaam was using the stick to also rely upon as well as well they have, right they they are, he

00:05:41 --> 00:06:04

relies upon it as well, what a hose should be ha I love anime. And what do I do, I also use it to lean or I also use it to bring down the trees in the branches or shake the branches. So the leaves fall so that my Hunnam my sheep and my livestock and have something to eat, they can graze upon the leaves that fall off of the tree. So he uses it for two purposes a

00:06:05 --> 00:06:44

he uses it to lean upon it. B He also uses it to take the tree and bring the branches down so the the livestock and feed or shake the tree so that the leaves fall. And then he can eat from the leaves of this tree. Well, she will be her I love her and me. And also I shake the tree. So the leaves fall. So my random, my livestock and go ahead and eat from it grace from it. What do you see? How am I audible? And there's many other things that I also have, and many other purposes that I also have for this stick? Now the answer was what's in your right hand? The question was what's in your right hand? Musa Ali said I'm giving a very, very long story in terms of the answers. And he

00:06:45 --> 00:07:22

even he didn't stop at the two reasons or the two purposes that he has for this particular stick. He said I have any other things that I do with as well hoping that Allah would ask him what are those other things as well. And now you have to notice here, Allah already knows all of this, Allah already knows the purpose of the stick, that Musa alayhis salam uses it for all the purposes but Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to bring his attention to when Allah is asking a question. It's not because he doesn't know, he's asking so that he may bring his attention to the stick, because something series is about to happen to the stick. So the other the other reasons or the other

00:07:23 --> 00:07:58

purposes of behind the stick included that if Musa alayhis salam is attacked by an animal or something or he sees an animal that he wishes to shoo off, you'll use this stick to sort of move it away, and so forth. You would also use it as the books of the sea and have it also use it to carry his belongings as well, right. You've seen on those cartoons and sometimes movies and so on and so forth. Someone has a stick and on top of the stick, they wrap up a cloth and in that cloth, they have their provision and their belongings and so forth. And they put it on their back like this and it's hanging in the back, right. So Musa alayhis salam is said to have been using the stick also to

00:07:58 --> 00:08:42

carry his belongings around as well. Right? What do you if you have an audible hoorah there's many other things that I do with this stick as well. Allah LT ha so it's a versatile stick. Now it becomes even more versatile. Allah subhana wa Allah says Allah lt has he says that Allah said throw this stick on the floor. Oh Musa throw it on the floor, oh Musa Firle Aha. Then the next verse, Allah says, Now Musa alayhis salam, he threw the stick down for either here or here to intersol then suddenly the stick ended up becoming a higher so Musa alayhis salam took the stick and he threw the stick just as Allah subhanaw taala had requested from him. When he said Allah LT Hi yah Musa, oh

00:08:42 --> 00:09:23

Musa throw this particular stick of yours. So Musa alayhis salam, he conformed to the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala he threw his stick for either a year here yet and then suddenly it became a snake that was that was moving it was moving really, really fast. Now Allah subhanaw taala describes this snake, that basically this tick which by the liver of Allah subhanaw taala became into a snake Allah subhanaw taala describes it in three different ways in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala calls it a year. Allah subhanaw taala calls it a third burn as well for either here thought abandoned will be in and Allah subhanaw taala he calls it a John as well. Right?

00:09:24 --> 00:09:46

So the first description is hey, yeah, that's the one we have over here. And the reason why I call it first is because it kind of encompasses both other descriptions as well third band and also John as well. To understand this, we have to understand the meaning of each of them third band is this really large grand snake, okay.

00:09:47 --> 00:09:59

And John happens to be a small snake, a very small but agile snake fast snake, okay. And here is a generally a general term which is inclusive of all forms of snakes.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:39

period, right? So you have these anacondas and you have these little guys that just go and you know, move really fast and so on and so forth. And then you have another type of snakes which are, which are we you have another word for snakes, which is the word snake itself, and that is general, it is inclusive of anacondas. And it's inclusive of these little skinny little fast snakes and agile snakes as well. So Allah subhanaw taala describes it with all three words. Now the question is what is meant from all of that? Allah subhanaw taala wants to establish a number of different qualities for this snake Allah wants to tell us, the readers of the Quran and the learners of the Quran and

00:10:39 --> 00:11:07

those who look into the Book of Allah and the miracles of the book of Allah, that it is a thorough ban in terms of the size that Allah subhanaw taala made this snake into. So it was just a stick, Allah transformed it into a serious sized snake. And that's why this snake on in another event that Allah describes also in the Quran as well, it ended up eating alive all of the other snakes of of the Sahara of the magician's, right.

00:11:08 --> 00:11:33

So this is a very large snake in that way. And number two, it is like a John in that it is very agile. Okay, it is like a small snake in that it's very agile, not in size. And last but not least, Allah calls it a Heyyo, which is a quality which encompasses both theraband and John at the same time for QA for either here or here to call up with her while at a half.

00:11:34 --> 00:11:35

He said who's hot, take it,

00:11:36 --> 00:12:04

one at a half. And don't be fearful Allah subhanaw taala is telling Musa alayhis salam go ahead and grab your stick, even though it looks to you like a snake right now. And it seems to be something that you should be afraid of and move, you know, move away from it, and so on and so forth. Don't worry, this is by our leave, this is occurring. And it is by our miracle miracle that this is occurring. So go ahead and grab that snake right. Now to describe exactly how he did it.

00:12:05 --> 00:12:49

You see the stick of Musa alayhis salam was a had a long trunk, okay. But at the top of the stick, there was two branches, almost or two branching little sticks, if you so please, right. And such a stick can actually be more useful because you can actually it's almost like a spoon, right? You can use it even more easily to sort of do it. Musa alayhis salam used to do with a stick, and that would be shaking their branches so that the leaves fall and other things that he would do, right. So the way he would hold it is he would hold it between the two branches. That's how he told him. And if you notice, even today, when people actually want, they want to use a stick to lean upon as they get

00:12:49 --> 00:13:33

older, they have something similar to the same sort of stick that Musa Ali salaam had. And that would be a stick that has two branches branching off from the actual trunk from the actual main part of the stick that they would lean upon, right? And that is where they hold it with their hands like this. Okay. So Musa alayhis salam is then told to go ahead and grab the snake in the same way. It is said in the books of history that the snake had his mouth open and he was told to go and put his hand right into the mouth of the snake because that the mouth itself came about from the two branches of the stick, that Allah subhanaw taala transformed into this snake So Musa alayhis salam,

00:13:33 --> 00:13:50

just as he would otherwise hold it between the branches. He was told to also hold between the mouth of the snake as well and Allah Subhana Allah Allah knows best but this is how the books of the FSI describe it. Allah subhanaw taala continues and he says for Allah for either he or her yet Intisar on Hudaydah that the half

00:13:52 --> 00:14:03

go ahead and grab it and don't be afraid of it said we're going to her Sirata Hello Gula we will go and transform it back to and reverted back to and change it back to its original state as well.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:50

It will go back to being a snake. It will go back to being a stick well Munia deca, Elijah Anna hike and go ahead also and take your hand and place it take your right hand and place it on your side as well. The Hello drew Bay law men lady sue in Ireland Aha. When you take your hand and you place it on your side under your armpit, it will suddenly come out the law when you take it out of there. It will become white men ladies who however, this whiteness will be without any Sue without any harm that will occur to you I attend okra and this is another sign from is from Allah azza wa jal as well. This is another idea, a sign of Allah azza wa jal as well for you right? Messengers are

00:14:50 --> 00:14:59

granted Ayat they're granted signs so that people may believe in the Ayat of Allah subhana wa Taala that we recite, so there are Ayat of Allah that we recite

00:15:00 --> 00:15:29

verses of Allah that we recite, which in and of itself are signs because they're so powerful. And similarly there are ayat that are physical signs of Allah azza wa jal that are given to the messengers as well. And those ayat, those ayat, help us believe in the believer in the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala as well just as the Ayat of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the creation also help us bring bring us back to the belief in the ayat of revelation as well right?

00:15:30 --> 00:16:10

Allah subhanho wa Taala says to Musa Ali Salam he says while dunya Dhaka Isla Jana de la I'm in it so go ahead and place your hand over here it will come out white men lady so without any harm to your skin, because you know, if your skin suddenly became white, you think that this is some sort of disease that is come about on you and you have to go to the doctor. Right. So Allah subhanaw taala console's ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada already tells Musa alayhis salam, that's not the case, you don't have to worry, there's no doctor that you have to worry about over here, you are simply going to you are simply going to have this as a sign for you i at an okra, and this is what the scholars of

00:16:10 --> 00:16:48

rhetoric call their us, okay. And that is basically a way to ward off any doubts that can occur because of a statement that you made you make a statement, but hang on this statement can also mean this and it can mean that it can mean this and that as well. You you tell a story and that story can be translated this way in that way in that way. So as soon as you start putting a number of you put it putting a clause in or another and so forth. As soon as you start doing that. That right there is a very very rhetorically powerful instrument because you're already warding off all other possibilities you're bringing narrowing it down to the actual meaning behind which because of what

00:16:48 --> 00:17:27

you ended up reporting the story or because of what you ended up making that statement so Allah did just that. Allah subhana wa Tada worded off a doubt that can occur because of skin becoming white and that is the doubt of what that is the doubt of a sickness. Leprosy is right. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then continued he said lino Dr. Kammen, IR tienen Cobra, we're doing this, you were making your stick into a snake. And we're doing this at you we are taking your hand and transferring transforming into white as opposed to the Arabian collection complexion that you already have. Right? Musa alayhis salam has an has a sort of Arabian complexion towards the white but an Arabian

00:17:28 --> 00:17:58

complexion nonetheless. So to become suddenly white, that is unusual. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we're doing this so that may happen to be a sign for you Leo, Dr. Kammen, iOttie. And Cobra, we're collecting all of these designs for you so that we may show you the greatest of our signs for your profit prophethood, which prove your prophethood so we may show you the greatest of our proofs that prove your prophethood Allah continued, and he said, it had been so long, actually, before I move on to the next verse.

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

Allah subhanaw taala in this verse, He tells us of the hand becoming white. But the historians also tell us that when he would put their hand back and do the same move again that Allah subhanaw taala told them to do, then the hand would suddenly go back to its original state as well. So it wasn't a sickness, it was actually assigned that when the hand would go below the armpit and he would pull it out, it's white, and then again, it would then become, it would then become his natural complexion again.

00:18:28 --> 00:19:09

Allah continues and he says is heavy enough he didn't want to in the hope of law. Now Allah subhanaw taala is bringing the real reason for which Allah subhanaw taala brought this entire story. And that is the story of the Prophet of the Prophet Musa alayhis salam was around and this also console's prophet the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well because remember, in the beginning of the Sunnah we described that the people of Qureshi started to they started to cast doubt upon the prophethood of the prophets of salaam because he was busy with riba he was busy, busy with calling, and apparently you could not see great signs of the effect of the Dawa in Mecca. By this time, this

00:19:09 --> 00:19:50

surah is revealed in the year four or five, after the revelation came to the prophets and sent them right. But at this time, you couldn't see too many clear of him too much of an impact of the call. So they said, you know, Allah has simply revealed the Quran to you so that you may go through distress and misery. Right. So now Allah subhanaw taala wants to show the Prophet Muhammad that other prophets went through a very difficult time as well. So this is a way to console the prophets of settlement. So he says, Have Eli Filomena inamoto. Go to Iran, for verily He has become tyrannical Khan. Allah subhanaw taala says, rubbish rally Saudi. Oh, my Lord, Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:50 --> 00:19:56

says quoting Musa alayhis salam, as in Musa alayhis salam said, this surely is Saudi.

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

Oh my Lord. Oh,

00:20:00 --> 00:20:42

When my chest for me, oh my lord, increase that make my chest vast for me and what that means is it's metaphorical. And it actually means Oh Allah allow for these difficulties that I am faced by allow for the difficult daunting challenge of meeting for our own head to had face to face and so on and so forth. With this data that you're giving me with this call that you're making me present before him, which would this message that you've given to the allow my chest to be vast for me to bear the difficulties that will come my direction, allow my chest to be vast for the evil way in which people may retaliate? Allow me to be, you know, open hearted, allow me to have a big heart

00:20:42 --> 00:21:21

allow me to have space within this heart of mine, so that I may bear all those difficulties. So that I may be may be able to persevere through all those challenges. So that I may be able to uphold the the quality and the wisdom and the and the beautiful character of of patients and so on and so forth in the face of trials, right. And I'll be sure to have your surgery, open up my chest for me. So this is a dua that we can all make as well. And before my daughter was I always make this to our obituaries odd, oh Allah open my chest up for me, right? Because there's some things you have to when you're giving the call of ALLAH SubhanA wa, tada. There's difficulties that come your way from

00:21:21 --> 00:22:00

directions that you did not even perceive and sometimes from the closest of those that happen to be you be towards you, right? They end up turning upon against you and so on and so forth. So this is a dua that he wouldn't he made rubbish, alright. And in Saudi Musa alayhis salam right from the very beginning, oh, Allah, allow my chest to be vast enough for me to bear these difficulties. Right. Well, you're Sidley Emery, and we can make this particular to our as well. And whatever we do within our lives, because you need to have a big heart for you to be able to bear the the difficulties that may be coming towards you from your own relatives, right. Sometimes you may be annoyed by something

00:22:00 --> 00:22:39

that one of your relatives is doing. You may be finding, you know, discomfort in one of your close family, relatives, perhaps your spouse as well, perhaps your children as well. So if you have a big heart, you can bear all those pains, right? All those difficulties don't no longer seem like difficulties anymore, when you have a big heart. So let's make dua altogether, that Oh Allah, expand our hearts for us. And I'm Beshara honey Saudi were Sidley Emery, and make my affair easy for me there's difficulties that will come your way when you call to Allah subhana wa Tada. And similarly, when you just try to live the rules of Allah subhanaw taala people will start calling you an

00:22:39 --> 00:23:17

extremist people will start saying granting you different titles that you that you actually do not deserve. People will start thinking your backwards saying your backwards and perhaps even acting in a way where they clearly make you feel like you happen to be backwards and so on and so forth. Right? But Allah subhanaw taala can make all of those affairs easy for you. Perhaps you will have been trying all your life to accomplish a certain goal. But every single time you tried to do it, there's hurdles in the middle, Allah subhanaw taala taught us upon the tongue of Musa alayhis salam to say rubbish it so did he make my heart expand for me why a Sydney Emery and make my affairs easy

00:23:17 --> 00:23:56

for me, I make other people's hearts also expensive, such that they end up accepting what I'm doing over here. Well, hello opendata melissani. And this is very important. And also untie the knots from my tongue as well. Because when you call to Allah subhanaw taala, one of the greatest things that you can be given is that your that knocks on your tongues become untied. Such that when you call to Allah, your message is actually each actually reaches the hearts, it actually becomes delivered, it actually reaches the destination that you're trying to make it reach it actually gets through the mind processes through the mind. It goes through the year ears, it processes through the ears and

00:23:56 --> 00:24:08

Nachi reached reaches the heart as well. So it's believe it is very eloquent such that you have no we'll call it reaches all the way to the heart, right? That is a common belief.

00:24:09 --> 00:24:19

So Musa alayhis salam said why opposite Amelia Sani, I'm tired the knots from my tongue as well. Right? Musa Ali Salam what had happened was when he was young,

00:24:21 --> 00:24:26

he was sitting, of course, he grew up in the mansions in the palaces of Pharaoh, right.

00:24:28 --> 00:24:59

And a part of that story in sha Allah will mention later on within this particular Surah as well. Okay, so Musa alayhis salam grew up in the situation where he is before the tyrant living within the house of this tyrant, right? And what even though that I would have great love for Musa alayhis salam was extremely beautiful, you know, child and very, very pleasant child to be around. So for around fell in great love with this particular child.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:20

Right, even though you would slaughter all the other children Musa Alisa, he did not do that to him. But what happened was Musa alayhis salam started playing with the beard of Quran which had some sort of which had some something tied within it. So when he pulled it a couple of years, or maybe a lot of years, pulled out of the beard of Iran right.

00:25:22 --> 00:25:23

Now, when he did that,

00:25:25 --> 00:25:50

fit own became really angry already, he was afraid that there's going to be a child among amongst the Israelites who will be born. And when he is born, this particular child will pretty much destroy my entire kingdom. So when he saw this, he thought that perhaps this is the child even though I thought he wasn't, perhaps this is the in fact that child right? So he wanted to basically kill Musa alayhis salam as well. Now, at that moment,

00:25:52 --> 00:26:03

the wife of her own she had the idea. She said, No, he's a child. He doesn't know the difference between difference between pearls and he doesn't know the difference between, you know, anything else as well, right.

00:26:04 --> 00:26:09

So what they did at that point is they brought

00:26:11 --> 00:26:45

a piece of coal that was burning, and they brought some pearls and they put them side by side, or jewels, and they put them side by side. Because for I want to say no, he's trying to take the jewels off of my beard, right? Because this is how his how much his heart is attached to the dunya. Right? But his wife is saying, no, no, no, he's just a child who doesn't, he can't differentiate between coal, he can differentiate between jewels and so on and so forth. So when he grabbed your beard, he didn't have anything to do with your it didn't have anything to do with your kingdom. It's simply something he was doing as a child and which is true, likely he was just doing something as a child.

00:26:45 --> 00:26:53

So when they put the jewels in the coals over there in the in the little basket or the bucket or whatever else, and are burning coal, that is

00:26:54 --> 00:27:35

the Musa alayhis salam ended up going for the coal this time. So his, and then he brought it brought that coal coal close to his mouth, and a little bit of that coal touched his tongue and birth it, okay, so of course, at that point, he chopped it away, or they took it away, and so on and so forth. So this left a, a bit of an oak die, it left a bit of a knot in his tongue, meaning you couldn't express himself absolutely clearly because the tongue, this particular thing happened to the tongue. However, when Musa alayhis salam made this dua, 100 milli Sunni, go ahead and untie the knot from my tongue. Allah Subhana. Allah did just that he accepted the call and the DUA of Musa alayhis salam,

00:27:36 --> 00:28:08

yes, coho holy making all of this dua so that you may so that they may understand my statement. Now, the story we gave, this is reported in the books of the feed, and likely it is from the the traditions of the Israelites, and we report these, we don't deny them, we don't reject them, and we don't necessarily accept them as well, but we did, we definitely can report them as well. In fact, on that note, my master's thesis was in fact on the subject of reports that come from the Israeli tradition, the

00:28:10 --> 00:28:37

the Judeo Christian tradition, right? Allah subhanaw taala continued, he said, Why opendata melissani yufka? Hopefully, they will understand my statement, what Dr. Lee was even early and make for me was Eve make for me a minister, from amongst your families, from amongst my family, right? Make for me a minister from my family.

00:28:39 --> 00:29:20

Why is he saying this? This is very powerful over here, he's making a dua for even his family members to be involved, right? Nowadays, people when they get some sort of hate when they get some sort of position, the first people that they end up trying to outcasts from their lives as the family members because they know that the family members have a certain you know, certain dues upon them, right. They have certain duties and certain obligations that they have to fulfill towards their family members, right. Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked who happens to be Oh prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the most worthy of my good companionship. So the

00:29:20 --> 00:29:57

prophets of salaam said your mother. So then he was asked again, who happens to be the most most worthy of my good companionship, the prophets and seldom said your mother again. Then the sahabi asked him again, who happens to be after that the prophets have said them said your mother, and then he said, your father, and then he said, some dinarica dnak Then those who happen to be the closest to you, and then those who happen to be the closest to you. So the closest of us, they happen to have certain we happen, we are obliged to take care of them, we are obliged to be their caretakers, we are obliged to look after them and so on and so forth. In our times, and in every single time

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

those who do not fear Allah subhanaw taala the first few

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

People, the outcasts are the closest family members, because they fear from them in ways that they don't fear from people who are outside of the family. Because those who are close to you, they know the ins and the outs of your life. They know how you were raised up, they know what you did to become who you became, they know all of the things about you. So that your your see it all your life is not hidden from these people. And that's why people try to push these people out of their lives as best they can. Musa Ali CERAM when he's given prophethood, what did he say? Was your Hadley was your Ahmed Ali from my family or Allah give me a minister who will look after my affairs as well.

00:30:37 --> 00:31:15

Now, look at the way Musa Ali Salam is addressing Allah subhanho wa taala, you know, when you are trying to sort of negotiate with someone, we're trying to sort of, not be direct about it, but then eventually cut to the chase as well. Some people are extremely explicit and direct other people, they're not extremely explicit and direct. Let's say you work in a company, and you want to hire someone, right? And you you say to your boss, you know, I was considering bringing somebody else in and you say, oh, we need something like this, I have an idea. What do you think about so and so and that's the one so happens to be relative? You don't expressively say it right away. Right? So and if

00:31:15 --> 00:31:57

that relative is really close to you don't mention their their name right, immediately. So you start off with certain mocha demand, you start off with certain pre faces, Mussolini surrounded just that he wants a family member, but he doesn't mention the name. He starts off by saying, Well, John Lee was here. And you know, bring me a minister for my family. And who's that minister that I'm referring to? How do we now keep perhaps how do one who happens to be my brother will still be here as the strengthen my back with him or strengthen my, my affair with him as it literally means your back as in this, your your spine, your strength, your ability to be able to continue your call on

00:31:57 --> 00:32:35

your message and your task, and so on and so forth, metaphorically speaking, and a logically speaking, right allegorically speaking rather, so he says we should it be as it is strengthen my affair, as literally means your back, but it is referring to allegorically it's referring to just generally his affairs, his ability to do things, because when there's two of you, you will be able to do more than more than one two minds are better than one, two people can do more of a task than just one person. If one person is doing every single thing, of course, there's going to be certain problems. But if there's a couple of people, they'll be able to handle the task in a better way. So

00:32:35 --> 00:33:11

he he says just that bring another person into my call as well. Right. And this is also a message to those people who want to call to Allah. Musa alayhis. Salam is looking for another day. Yeah, basically, he's looking for another caller. He's not trying to just have the limelight for himself and have the call all to himself and have all the virtues all for himself. He knows the task is huge. I can handle it all by myself. So it was good to be here, as he bring me someone else. Let it be my family member, because of course you want to hide from your family member members, first and foremost. And then he says, strengthen my call with him because he knows he can do it all by

00:33:11 --> 00:33:49

himself. Then he continues and he says, Well, I should eat coffee and Mini, not just strengthen him make him a minister, rather given a portion of my matter as well. What's that matter? Musa Ali Salam has been given prophethood right at the top of the page. Allah said, we're an actor to care for stimuli. Now you have I have chosen you or prophet Musa alayhis salam, I have chosen you for the message. I've given you the prophethood I've given you the messenger as well. So you now are a messenger. So Musa Ali Salam doesn't want the message all to himself. He wants it for her own Ali Sarah as well. So he says what actually Kofi Emery. So go ahead and give him a portion of this

00:33:49 --> 00:34:13

matter that you have given me as well. Okay, you said the haka. Kathira, so that you so that we may be able to glorify you a lot, when as cool aka cathedra. So that we may be able to call out to you so that we may be able to remember you as well. A lot in Quinta, Bina Masirah. You are all watching, you are ever watching over us, Allah or Buddha is that the world.

00:34:14 --> 00:34:51

So Musa alayhis salam wants a another person who can help him in his call, Musa alayhis salam wants to hire for other people as well. If he wants to go and give the call himself he wants his brother to give the call as well if he wants to if he has been granted profit or he wishes that his brother is also granted this prophethood if he has been granted the ability to call out to Allah subhanaw taala he has been granted the ability to remember Allah subhanaw taala in the correct way and to glorify Allah in the correct way he wants his brother to be doing that as well. So our religion is all about sharing. Right right from the beginning of the Quran, Allah subhana wa Tada teaches us

00:34:51 --> 00:34:59

this this ethic of sharing when he says a dino set up on Mr. Beam, He tells us to say guide us to the street path. So we all want guidance not

00:35:00 --> 00:35:39

Just for our selves, but we want it for all of us, right? This is a message for all of us. This is a message for students of knowledge. This is a message for scholars as well, this is a message it can be. It can be extended to other scopes of life as well. But it is directly related to these two scopes, because that's what was Ali said, I'm just talking about, he's talking about Dawa, and prophethood. So in our context, it is that I literally, and also the URL that we seek, so we have to ensure that knowledge that we have, we don't try to hoard it to ourselves. Rather, we allow other people to come in and benefit from this knowledge rather, we we share that knowledge with other

00:35:39 --> 00:36:15

people as well. And also those people who share knowledge. They don't just try to hoard all the limelight to themselves rather everyone should get a portion of it. Right? Because we can't do this all by ourselves. There's no one man showing this. Even the prophets knew that there is no one not showing this, that there has to be more than one profit in order for the data to be complete in order for the call to reach all of humanity in Nikka contravene Abba Sierra indeed you Oh Allah or ever watching over us I ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us the understanding that Allah is ever watching and always watching this optimal low hidden for listening with some Allahu ala Sayidina

00:36:15 --> 00:36:18

Muhammad Ali he will be in Germany.
