Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala like I said, you know, have you know how many of us remain? Alright, so we stopped. Last time at a number 59

00:00:11--> 00:00:14

We completed reciting the introduction of the sutra

00:00:16--> 00:00:43

the first story and the sort of the story of the people of the cave, individuals of the cave and the commentary that followed it. And then we recited the story of hydrogen detain are the two men and their two orchards, which, and the commentary that followed it. And those two stories talked about the two first concepts of what is used to build a society to build a community or to start

00:00:44--> 00:00:48

a habit or basically a movement of reform.

00:00:49--> 00:01:02

And the first two elements are the ideology, the idea itself, and wealth. And when we say wealth, what we're talking about is not just the concept of materialistic possessions, but as what we're talking about

00:01:04--> 00:01:40

fundamental principles, meaning because a lot of that a lot of most of the time, when wealth comes into the store into the picture, what ends up happening is that a lot of your principles are compromised. And you start when people start changing the way they behave, or the way they think, or how they deal with, with certain problems based on based on having wealth or having more possessions or, or viewing themselves as richer than they used to be. And that's why the second story, when it looks at wealth, or materialistic possessions, or materialism, it looks at it from from a number of different angles, the story itself, and then the commentary after it, it goes quite deep and looking

00:01:40--> 00:02:15

at the root cause of what money is, what it causes in in our psyche, and what we're supposed to use it for, and what it can end up doing to us. And that was kind of what we covered in the last number of sessions. And today, we start something new. Today, we started a third, the third story, and this is a very, I'm gonna take will take longer probably in this story than any other one, just based on the fact that it's extremely symbolic. And it's very, it's very important that it's understood properly. There's a lot of myths that surround it, meaning very often very commonly, the story is misused or misunderstood. And today, Inshallah, we'll start with that, and we'll go through

00:02:16--> 00:02:21

some of the details that come with it. Now, before we begin, I have to do some, some background.

00:02:24--> 00:02:59

I think what I think everyone is starting to see a bit that when we read a story in the Quran, there's a lot of background information that is needed to, for that story to be properly understood. And there's a lot of build up that we have to know just based on the fact that the story is being told, that allows us to actually benefit from the story. So when you look at the Quran, without any of that background, without any of that any build up, then yeah, it becomes a bit harder to understand what the what is saying, for example, like a lot of the commentary verses that we read, had we not had a story that was clear to us before before it talking about a certain thing, the

00:02:59--> 00:03:31

commentary verses wouldn't make as much sense as they did when we knew it. No, no, this is talking about the concept of relevant then every example that was given every story that was told, you could immediately connect it to the to the story before and it will, it makes much more sense. And that is an important part of understanding the Quran, meaning you have to be able to connect the dots within the Quran, and the and everything that outside of it meaning the context and the circumstances and build up in the background for this story. So if you were to read this story of Musa Alison ampro, for example, here, without any background, it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible for

00:03:31--> 00:03:34

you to actually understand what the point of the story is, and what he's talking about.

00:03:35--> 00:04:06

He kind of starts halfway through halfway through the events. So if you were going to make this into a small dose short film, where the story starts in the Quran is halfway through the events, there's already a number of things have already happened. Building up to that moment. That's how the whole untold stories, because we have the prophets of Allah, Allah, it's like the salam, we have the scholars of the of the books before us, that will offer you that background and offer you that context that is needed for you for us to understand the stories. But without it, it's very hard to understand it and that

00:04:07--> 00:04:25

that law or that rule applies for the whole Quran. Any sewer that you read, if you don't have context to it, if you don't understand when it was revealed, or the point of his revelation, or what was happening to the Prophet symbolize it as it was being revealed, or what background story or build up there is to it, then you're gonna find it very difficult to understand what the story is talking about. And

00:04:26--> 00:04:55

for examples with the Toba as an example of sort of that talks about details specifically, so it talks about striving, jihad, but it talks about details specifically. And if you don't understand the build up to that surah. If it's not clear to you what was happening at the time, what year we were in, what were the events that led to the revelation of the Surah, then it's gonna be very difficult for you to maneuver through, but once you do, it becomes much easier actually becomes totally it makes perfect sense and you don't struggle with it anymore. And actually, there's a lot of benefit in it for all of us. So this story that we're reading,

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

mostly on Instagram, of course

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

Azim Nevelson from the strong willed prophets, the five strong willed prophets new Ibrahim Musa ASAM, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam.

00:05:10--> 00:05:48

And Musa of course, was probably one of the strong, strongest willed of them all, not at salatu salam went through a lot of difficulties similar to what the prophet our Prophet Muhammad SAW was and and went through. That's why his name is probably the one that is mentioned the most in the Quran. And his story is repeated them, you know, the highest number of times in the Quran. However, the story we're going to read today, only existence, you'll find it nowhere else, like the story of Musa nephron you will find it 567 times in the Quran, sometimes in detail sometimes without much detail, the story of Musa alayhis salam and his people after they went through the sea, you will

00:05:48--> 00:05:59

find it in the Quran. similar number of times, but then you come to this story. And it only exists here. This is the only place that this story is talked about. Now what it is, is that most artists that I was asked a question

00:06:01--> 00:06:11

and he answered it honestly to his ability. He was asked I being at the time that he was, he was the only prophet within his vicinity. And he was

00:06:13--> 00:06:43

he was going to Dota he was Karim Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning he spoke to Allah subhanaw taala and probably the only prophet who had that ability or was given that that status besides the Prophet Muhammad, some lesson lemony knowledge, but when he was asked who is the most knowledgeable of people Yeah, Musa. He thought anything I said, I think it's me, it's probably me. Now this is not a matter of of arrogance here. Like, it's important that we see what this is. This is just a matter of of honesty, he's thinking, I believe I'm probably the most knowledgeable.

00:06:44--> 00:07:25

Why isn't why didn't he find it difficult to say that he saw to us, because unlike us, they did not associate knowledge with status or knowledge with with with rankings mean, because it's known that you're only as good as how as as much as the level of piety that you have, you're only as good as you pay the level of piety that is within you, which is Dakwah. The more Taqwa that you have, the closer you are to Allah subhanaw, the better you are, you are as a human being. Now, no one knows the level of piety that you have no one knows that level of closeness that you have, but Allah subhanaw taala himself, you don't even have the ability to, to assess it. And you definitely don't

00:07:25--> 00:07:33

have the ability to compare it to other people. Right? That means it is going to stay forever a mystery for all human beings.

00:07:34--> 00:07:59

The issue of who's better than whom, we don't know, we have no idea it's impossible for us to know for the people living around us who is better than whom we can look at certain individuals and say mashallah, they're, you know, they seem to be like this. So they seem to be like that. But even when we say that we're supposed to say when others like yacht Allah here, we're not, we don't have the liberty or the ability or the power or the authority to assess people and to give them a higher status or lower status is not it's not up to us, it's not our it's on our place.

00:08:01--> 00:08:07

What does knowledge do for that, how does knowledge play into that is knowledge a, an element of piety?

00:08:08--> 00:08:47

See, knowledge is just like wealth, these white This is why these four concepts in the in the SUTA and disorder that we're studying, can be used for two for both things, ideas, good ideas, strong ideas can help communities stand up, get on their feet and become prosperous, and bad ideas can cause World Wars, you get a group of people give them a bad idea, tell them they are naturally better than others. And then everyone else should, you know, be enslaved by them, then they can they can cause a World War. Take another group of people give them a good idea, an idea that is worth living for him, though Stan, don't start a civilization take money, money, you see it in the right

00:08:47--> 00:09:26

context, understand how the proper perspective outlook regarding money, then you can do a lot of it with it, have their own idea about what it is and then you can you can destroy economies you can, you can, you can basically cause a lot of suffering and agony in the world for all people. The same thing goes for knowledge. The same thing goes for power, or military power status, which we're gonna study later. But all these points, all these issues, these elements can be used both ways. So you can use it, to improve yourself, to become someone with more depth, to have to be able to understand your experiences better, to have a better understanding of the world around you and all the events

00:09:26--> 00:10:00

that are happening, to understand properly, what your role is, to be able to have the world around you work for you, meaning us to use the elements of nature around you to serve you better. So you have so you're you're capable of being a bit more effective and more efficient in what you're going to do. These are things that knowledge can be used for, or you can use knowledge for destruction, both literal physical and emotional, psychological, meaning you can use knowledge to become arrogant to think that you're better than others because you know more. If you know more, that means you're better than

00:10:00--> 00:10:30

People, is that true? Islamically? No, not even close. That's why, you know, Musa was asked, Are you the most knowledgeable? He thought he said, I think I am, I probably am. I will I am. I'm the most knowledgeable because, well, I'm Karim Allah. And I know that there's no other prophets at this time besides me prophets know each other. I'm not the only one. So I should be the most knowledgeable, it wasn't a matter of I'm better. Knowledge has nothing to do with better knowledge is one thing, being better is a whole different thing. Now can knowledge help you become better? Of course, that's the whole point of it. But does it mean that you're better.

00:10:31--> 00:11:09

And you're standing idea here, of course, you're gonna you can use it to become better, but you can also use it become worse. And can it can go both ways, easily, easily. The Hadith that we know narrated by Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam talks about a woman to set out to be human now to multi I mean, the first people to be like, for the for the for Jahannam, when he learns ALLAH SubhanA, Allah selama. To warm up, basically, the wording to Assad is Allah Subhan, Allah wants to warm up jahannam. So throwing a few people first. So the first people to warm up Jahannam are four people, at least two of them are of extreme knowledge. But according to the Quran, they have no

00:11:09--> 00:11:28

knowledge and a scholar. Then when they're asked why you did it, we did it for you. No, you didn't, you did it for yourself. And you wanted to become famous, or you wanted to become two people to say that your household or your ID, America. And they did, they said it. So now, I owe you nothing. So they're thrown into agenda. So it works both ways. It could it could be used for you to be the lowest of statuses.

00:11:30--> 00:12:02

Or it could be the highest. It's just a tool that makes sense, what we're studying and so to cover just tools, maybe that maybe that wasn't conveyed properly, yet, we're just studying tools, ideas, ideologies, ways of thought principles, ethics values are tools you use in order for you to, to regulate yourself and help others regulate themselves. So we can see eye to eye on things that we can move forward, we can actually do something together, our energy is channeled in the same direction. So now we can actually make a difference. Well, the same thing, it's a tool, you use it properly, you can make a big difference, if not both both tools you can

00:12:03--> 00:12:16

that's why the whole the commentary on the stories, see if there weren't tools that could be used for both things, there would be no commentary on the stories, the story would just come one after the other. But the economy is telling you this could possibly be very, very, very difficult.

00:12:17--> 00:12:36

Wealth can cause a lot of problems, if you don't use it properly. If you don't see it properly, you don't understand it properly. Same thing goes for knowledge, any type of knowledge, worldly knowledge, science, for example, or Islamic knowledge, understanding the aspects of who Allah subhanaw taala isn't what he sent. The Quran doesn't see a difference. By the way.

00:12:37--> 00:12:49

The Quran does not differentiate between the two types of knowledge that I just made, I just made a differentiation I told you there's this type of knowledge in that type of knowledge. That is something that moves data, we made that up, the Quran doesn't see it. Knowledge is knowledge.

00:12:50--> 00:13:02

And knowledge is whatever you know, now that you didn't know before, means you have more knowledge, anything any piece of information. That is true, of course, if it's a false information, then that's problematic.

00:13:03--> 00:13:44

If you know more than you know more, regardless of what field you know more in you just have more knowledge. And the Quran looks at it from a holistic point of view, it does not specify it is universal knowledge is just it can be increased. And if it's increased, then that is a tool for you to improve that something you can use to better your own life and better the lives around you. And as they say anymore. Knowledge is light enlightened is everyone in them. There is no place in the Quran, where Jehovah ignorance is, is commended in any form. No type of ignorance is commended. There is no type of ignorance that is good nothing. No matter what type of ignorance it is. It is

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

always negative

00:13:47--> 00:14:22

even when it comes to faith. So even comes to Eman if you're a Mormon, but your Eman is based on ignorance, it's not a good thing. Just because you're a movement doesn't mean that you're doing it the right way. There's a lot of movements in the world, a lot of believers in the world, Muslim and non Muslim. If you either based on ignorance, it's not very helpful. It's not good. It's not something that is good. The Quran at least looks for intellectual faith looks for EMA and that is Magne either on knowledge, and again, what type of knowledge any type of knowledge. It doesn't differentiate it doesn't say this type or that type. No, no, this we made that up. We start to say

00:14:22--> 00:14:38

oh, there are worldly knowledge is not no no. All knowledge is worldly knowledge. Just every piece of knowledge and knowledge that will help you get through this world. Whatever it is you study doesn't make a difference whether you hear philosophy or physics, math, or Islamic education is all knowledge at the end. That's all it is like to see the difference.

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

Musa answered the question, I just hope that these ideas slowly think about these ideas because it's important that we you know, be look because No, this is going to be a very big topic for discussion. Musa answered the question honestly, he didn't he didn't mean to be arrogant. He wasn't trying to be he just said I believe I'm the most knowledgeable. Now the time that you answer this question

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

was immediately after they crossed the Red Sea or they crossed it almost immediately this happened. Up till now Mozart s&m has only been preaching.

00:15:12--> 00:15:25

It's just been teachings, there has been no practicum to any of it. Meaning the dean that moves Allianz to Lambright has not been practiced yet. It has been taught, the theory has been taught, the practice has not been taught yet.

00:15:26--> 00:16:05

It's easy to teach the theory, it's easy, it's hard to take the theory and practice it in reality, and make it work. It's very, it's very, it's a whole different ballgame. Everything changes the moment you want to take what you know, you, if you study math, you know, or physics is clear, you're taught the formula. Now go ahead and use that formula. And in problems, a whole different thing, a hold of you need, you needed another teacher to come and spend hours with you. So you're gonna need because I know I memorize. I know what it is. I know the whole formula. I know what they mean. But I have no idea how to implement this. And then you find that it's not always as straightforward as you

00:16:05--> 00:16:27

thought, meaning the theory that you are the formula that you studied is straightforward. It's clear. And then the implementation there's always these variations. Always these slight diversions from the from the mainstream, always a little tricks, you have to pick up little changes, you have to accommodate little things you have to factor in that you weren't told when you were playing the theory. That is how it is in every factor factor factor of life.

00:16:28--> 00:17:01

I know how to buy and sell clothes, that means you're a merchant, because you're a businessman, if you know what buying and selling means I know how to do it, I give this to you. And then I take money or the opposite nightclubs I go to buy and sell. So I know I'm businessman know, if you understand the formula, even if you go to school, you go to your major in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and just it has nothing to do with your ability to go out to the world and actually make it and to be successful as a as a businessman, it's a whole different thing. In medicine, I'll give you an example from our own profession, and medicine. What we study in the book and books is

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

one thing what we do in the clinic is a whole different thing. Well, that is completely different.

00:17:07--> 00:17:11

I remember after we graduated, and we're starting to work towards

00:17:12--> 00:17:16

some of the janitors. What to do with and we did

00:17:17--> 00:17:35

it there are janitors in the on the ward, who knew what to do with, with patients more than I did. And I studied about seven years of medical school, look, I lost my hair studying. But this guy, you know, he's just cleaning the floor, he sees he hears something he knows what to do immediately. Well, I remember there was when I was on call, and the

00:17:36--> 00:17:52

doctor was supposed to be on call with me wasn't there. So I was running towards which is like over 60 patients, it's impossible for me to. So I'm running back and forth all night. And there was one of the code went off, one of the patients was going to create a cardiac arrest. And I didn't know what to do, I didn't even know where the cart was a janitor had got the cart, hooked it up.

00:17:54--> 00:18:10

He revived the patient, he brought, it waited for me to do it, this patient would have died. This man. I don't know if he's alive right now or not. But yeah, and he would have passed away Had this not men not been there. And he was like yelling at me. It wasn't doing it properly. The difference between studying the theory

00:18:11--> 00:18:16

and taking that theory, those principles, those values, those

00:18:17--> 00:18:23

that list of rules and principles, and turning them into into practice is a very different thing.

00:18:24--> 00:19:04

A problem today, a big problem today is when the person who's going to tell you the ruling, if he himself, or she himself or herself, they are disconnected from reality, then what they say will not work than the factory they give will be useless. Because they have not gone down if they're not on the ground. And they're not watching how things are being implemented. So they don't know what to say. So their as their answer is sterile. It's dead before it was born, the answer does nothing. Because it's been it's been asked by someone who's on the ground who's going through difficulties. It's been answered by someone who's never been there before, doesn't know what and the Quran sees

00:19:04--> 00:19:41

that. And the Quran talks about that it will see that here in this very, very renowned and famous story in the Quran, where Musa alayhis salam had started to become that and was now given the chance to finally understand his own faith holistically. Instead of seeing things just through the, the lens of theory, he was given an example that no, you're not the most knowledgeable person. Yes, you may know all the formulas more than others. But there are people on the ground who know more than you. There are people who are doing things who are there who are dealing with people who seed who see it different than you are problem of seeing, understanding Islam in a very

00:19:42--> 00:19:51

dissected manner, or compartmentalized. It's all little compartments where one is not attached to the other, or we can't.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

We're not capable of seeing the bigger picture, seeing the bigger picture means that you you can't just study the theory. Seeing that

00:20:00--> 00:20:35

Bigger Picture means you studied the theory. Then you went and you worked and you tried to get it, to practice it for years, you failed, you succeeded, you follow, and then you come back and you have the bigger picture. But if all you did was just teach, and you just lived in the masjid and you just spoke that means your understanding of it is always going to be it's always going to be any partial to be a partial understanding most at least to them. He was going through just just after they went off the cuff to see more Sally said I'm had not practiced anything yet. Why because I so far is relates the people of Israel

00:20:38--> 00:21:14

had been enslaved for the for the last 600 years, or however long it's been, they've been enslaved for a very long time. And he didn't have the ability to actually practice anything with his people. He just all he did was talk to frown and preach to the Israelis what what Islam was or what Judaism was explained to them what La ilaha illallah meant, so it was a lot of theory. Do we find something similar in the life of the prophet Sallallahu sallam? Of course, Mecca? Mecca was a lot of the theory in the Medina was a lot of practice. But there was a theory that Medina you got to prove, okay, can you can you practice it? Can the prophets lie Selim through the teachings of Islam? Bring

00:21:14--> 00:21:50

two groups of people who don't know each other? And have them live in the same houses for 13 years and not kill each other? Can you do it? Can you start a brotherhood between people from Mecca and people from Medina? Can you do it again? Is Islam strong enough to make that? Can you do that? Can he bring people to tribes have been fighting for over 100 years? Can he bring them together and make them one and make them work together towards a common goal and and live their brotherhood? Can you do that? So like and it's time to do it. And you see the difference here from learning their probably their theory, and then going through a practice show us? And this is a problem with a lot

00:21:50--> 00:21:53

of what we do as muslims today. We're all talk.

00:21:54--> 00:21:59

We're just we're just talk. The brother was just telling me a second ago, I looked for swear to God, I got a million.

00:22:01--> 00:22:09

Yeah, there's a million guys like me talking about a little girl. Well, Allah He as many people as you want to talk about this. Okay?

00:22:10--> 00:22:47

How many people do actually need to talk about this? You need one, just one person. So you're properly close, we're good. But we need a million people to practice it. There's a difference. You need a million people to take it down to reality, and to actually bring forward the result that is needed or that we hope to find from the words here and Mousavi Islam for a moment. I think although I'm the whole point of this story, was lost just lost view of it because it's been so long because he didn't have a choice for a long time. He couldn't leave and do practice anything. If you're God. Allah subhanaw taala taught immediately he learned Ali Salam had a different mentality. Today we

00:22:47--> 00:23:25

have the same problem. And the same problem. A lot of religious speakers and scholars are living in their, you know, their in their high terraces, we have pi far away from what's going down on ground. Even they see things idealistically they don't have the ability to understand how difficult it is they haven't been to a high school, they haven't went and sat with Muslim youth within any society and listen to their problems understood where they are. And a lot of Islamic movements that exist in the world today also have this anti rainbow view of what's going to happen or where we are or how we can because it's just a matter of, of disconnection from really the reality. It's a disease that

00:23:25--> 00:23:49

needs to be fixed. It's fixed by eco going and working with people and seeing where we actually are drawing the line. This is where we are right now. And this is where we need to move. This is our next step. We're far away from where more most people think. And he specifically those who speak about this, and I think that's, this is one of the strong lessons you will find. So he was told he said that's what he said. He answered the question quite simply, he said I think it's me, or it's me. Allahu Allah.

00:23:51--> 00:23:56

Allah subhanaw taala told him, nope, ain't you? There's actually someone who's more knowledgeable than

00:23:57--> 00:24:05

most it still was not offended by that. He was not jealous. And he did not. The first thing came to his mind was Okay, where is he?

00:24:06--> 00:24:24

Where is he telling me where he is allowing me to go learn from him? You know? So Allah subhanaw taala told him where he was and Mousavi said I'm gonna conquest he took USIA batelco his intern if you you can call them later on who who would become one of the prophets of Allah eid and he would he would carry on the torch of moose moose is I'm carried.

00:24:26--> 00:24:43

Anyone looking for this more the person who was more knowledgeable than moose Ali salaam, we're gonna fight and we're going to learn this story is that the knowledge that this person has, is not in that GM is not in our theta. It's not in. It's not in school. It's not in deceit, or how do you know it's in practice.

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

It's in ability to know what's happening on the ground, what people at the time are going through and how you're going to implement it how you're gonna understand events that are surrounding you find that the these three examples that are the three things that happen are all practical. You

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

That moves out east to them because of the the reality of what was happening, what happened to him had become disconnected from it, maybe for a moment forgot that everything we learned here,

00:25:11--> 00:25:48

it's all it's only as it's worth is directly correlated with our ability to practice it on the ground. So if we can't practice this, then I'm sorry, it's not gonna be worth anything. Now that is, of course it's from Allah subhanaw taala. It is the only true Huck in the world. And it is the highest ranked thing is the most holy thing that exists in the planet and you're holding in your own hands. But it's not people are tired of talk, you want to do what you want non Muslims to see that Muslims are Jonnie are worthy, and the Muslim and that Islam is true. It's not about debates is not about holding debates all around the world and talking, it's about getting our communities, in

00:25:48--> 00:26:01

functioning, get our communities to function. When the world looks at you and sees that your societies are strong, the fabric of their societies are much stronger, you have less less rates of divorce, your youth are off the streets, they're in schools,

00:26:02--> 00:26:37

they are committed to the to the idea that you have they are feeding back into their communities, they are activist towards our issues of of social justices and inequalities that exist in the world, when they see that when they see that we are supportive of one another when when a Muslim exists in the Muslim community, he will not be or she will not be neglected. They won't starve. They won't be left alone. They'll always find support within it. That is Do that and you'll see how people will come. Edna Allah here for you will see people enter the deen in large numbers. It's not about the debate people, don't you?

00:26:38--> 00:26:55

No one wants to listen to what you have to say. Talk is cheap. It's easy to talk. It's easy to draw this perfect picture of what Islam is all beautiful. Okay, it looks nice on the wall. Can you show me how this was would work? Yeah, and you're on ground. And then you try and then

00:26:57--> 00:27:30

the bubbles popped. And it's not as easy as you thought it was going to be. It's not as simple as you think. It's not as smooth and it doesn't happen as quickly and as a lot of mistakes. That happens a lot of difficulties. And it's not easy. But that is the norm the norm. I'll give you an example. This is gonna bother maybe some of you hopefully, hopefully it will bother too many. The message is empty. Where are people? Why don't people come to the masjid? Where's our youth? Why isn't us in the masjid? Okay, we bring in the youth why are they so loud? Why are the new shoes not up? Why are the young talking of him? Not what do you want me to do? Like I have to bring in the

00:27:30--> 00:27:33

type of youth that you want. That means you don't understand how things run.

00:27:34--> 00:28:05

It's the false understanding of what what the practicum is going to look like. You want to do that and bring people in, this is what you're going to get. That's the practicum is gonna take a long time. The prophets lie Selim went through worse he had people come in and take a piss right in the masjid. Someone urinate right inside the county, we don't have that 100 I haven't had anyone who come into the masjid year, and zip up. And none of that happens yet. hamdulillah has been problems, but not to that extent, the profits are less and then we started bringing people in. One person walked in and urinated.

00:28:07--> 00:28:38

And we read the story we think I gotta just anyway, you have to go through some lesson them. And of course, of course, when you when you open when you do though, when you start practicing, and you bring people it's going to be difficult to give me a lot of mistakes, a lot of difficulties, we have to adjust a lot of things as we move along. And we have to be very flexible, we have to very open and the way we're going to deal with it. But that is knowledge that is knowledge. And that is knowledge that is worthy to carry on to another generation. The theory is simple. By a book, by a book with a theory is simple. It's just not knowledge. Any theory is one thing, practice is a whole

00:28:38--> 00:28:57

different thing. But like I can't lie to you, I'll tell you. I've been working with youth fairy honey since I was a youth. And it says it's a whole different ballgame people most most Chinese scholars and most don't know what they haven't seen it yet. Most parents don't know what they're talking about. Most parents don't even see their kids long enough to know what use is.

00:28:58--> 00:29:12

The father comes in at eight o'clock at night and they're almost half asleep, doesn't know what's going on. He has no idea they wake up suddenly what my son is doing how when I don't know when when do you think? When do you think it's a whole it's a very different ballgame when we talk about

00:29:13--> 00:29:38

the practice of this. Anyways, that's the background. This is basically what's happening. Most artists that is going to give us an example of someone also he shows us the I'm just giving you the big guy, any of the titles is gonna show us the value of m is gonna show us how to be a pilot and I'd be a seeker of knowledge. That'd be someone who understands the value of knowledge and seeks knowledge with respect and seeks knowledge with

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

with enthusiasm with energy, understanding the value of what he's going to be offered. So he comes to it with with a whole different you'll see that most is that I'm the strong willed person. No who was you can almost imagine Musa when he's giving his ice ice. Imagine saving the Musa giving his sermons. powerfully. You know that deep voice

00:30:00--> 00:30:31

He was a big man, it was very direct in the way he spoke, you can always draw parallels moosari seminar will always feel like there's similarities in their personalities. Most times it was very strong, they everyone's was feared Musa how to win under their hand was a different personality. So they kind of you know, it's like you have two parents, one of them, you're scared of your daddy, talk to the other, to see your mom, see if you can get what you want. Most nice, everyone feared him. And then suddenly, when he was told, Oh, you're not the most knowledgeable, there's someone else who's knowledgeable, more knowledgeable than you in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala, which

00:30:31--> 00:30:34

means it's a given deal. And he's over there he changes.

00:30:37--> 00:31:11

He becomes extremely humble. Of course, he's always humble, but you can see it even in the way that he speaks the way that he walks, everything that he does. And he stood up and he becomes way more he just changes personality. Why? Because he's going to be offered knowledge right now. The value that he gives knowledge, the the status and the rankings that knowledge takes in his mind is of that level, it's very high up is very important that does that mean that most artists is going to just accept what this guy tells him? Is he gonna accept what he tells them no matter what it is? No, even though Allah told him he is more knowledgeable than you, he's gonna object every time he's gonna

00:31:11--> 00:31:45

object to the more he doesn't. Okay, go away. No more, you have to go back home, you're not allowed to learn anymore. Is that something he did wrong? No, you're supposed to question everything you see, you're supposed to question everything you say you're supposed to do it. The story is very, very rich has like 50 elements of different issues regarding knowledge, Musashi, some came with it, he had the right attitude towards knowledge, however, he will continue to object. Why because that's how you're supposed to do it. You come with respect to the knowledge that you want the respect of the person who is going to offer it to you, that doesn't mean you turn off your brain doesn't mean

00:31:45--> 00:31:49

that whatever you they tell you, that's what you're going to accept because they have a big

00:31:50--> 00:32:27

turbine is big enough. And you know, whatever they say is you object to it. You can ask if you don't like it, you talk you speak even. I mean, I was told by Allah, this guy is more knowledgeable, not it's not just a guy, something we think you don't know by niba by the will have Allah that if anyone's more knowledgeable than you in the world today, you just assume and based on credentials, and you know, certificates and degrees and whatnot, but Allah told Musa he knows more than you. And yet he objected every time I'm gonna say that does that mean he made a mistake? No, didn't make a mistake at all it he said it exactly what he was supposed to do. But it showed as well, that he had

00:32:27--> 00:32:37

he lacked a certain element of knowledge. He liked the practicum because he learned it later but you're locked Oh, I didn't understand. There's another

00:32:38--> 00:33:15

there's the theory and then there's how it's going to look on the ground. And it's easy for us to tell to tell you how the Islamic narrative of or the perspective of life that Islam gives you but it's a whole different deal when you lose someone that you love. Right understanding that you're supposed to have sober and you thought you're supposed to be of acceptance you know that those who passed away early Allah subhanaw taala took them and you will see them again and then you do this all that is understood, but what happens when someone actually goes then what then his practice and his practice then everything changes. Everything is not the same anymore. Know what happened? And

00:33:15--> 00:33:44

what's the point if you learned all that and you can write me an essay with all the steps you're supposed to take when you go whenever and then when it actually happens? You mess it all up. What was the point? Where where's the benefit? If you can sit here and tell me how you're supposed to treat your wife Islamically then how are you supposed to speak to her now it was picture kid who may Allah Allah Allah yada yada and then you go home and it's a whole different thing. It's completely different in use on your own? And he's like, No, I have a different separate my my wife is different. She's

00:33:45--> 00:34:17

She's not like otherwise he or she has our problems. She's good guys me great. You know, my kids, you know, my kids, why? Why everyone else's kids standard and your kids are Yeah, the exceptions to the to the rule, why? It's just that gap that exists between theory and practice. We can we can tell. And that's why I feel like these HELOC contests to a certain point, they run their cycle. And after they'll tell us, tells you you've heard everything you need to hear. Like you've heard literally everything, it just becomes to hear that you just want to sit there and feel close to Allah Subhan that's not about the knowledge, the knowledge is there. Can you practice it? Is the

00:34:17--> 00:34:33

question. And if you can't practice it, then find out why. And look for the root cause and if you need to help them you find to find help and then that becomes the issue. Now that is what knowledge is knowledge becomes then how is it that we make sure people who have the knowledge can practice it that's become that becomes analogize more important.

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

All societies and all theologies and ideologies and groups and civilization on the planet today, agreed to a number of values. We have similar values you don't cheat. You don't. You don't lie. You don't harm other people. You shouldn't you should families a strong tolerance, but can we practice it? And if Muslims have the worst record of practice, let's say but they don't necessarily do that. Why would anyone listen to us?

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

Why would they care? Why because we have a fancier way of putting it. Because the bad that people aren't impressed by that anymore. It's not impressive. Knowledge is not impressive. You have books that tell you how to build a plane, you memorize the book, you know everything, but you'd never build the plane. So what? So what? No one cares. By the way, building stuff, the information is online for free. Once the way I was, I know this sounds really, I'm not sure if he didn't say this was Yanni. At a certain point. I was. I was debate I was talking to him. I told him, You know what we know when it comes to any nuclear power? How to actually use nuclear power? I'm sure that the

00:35:42--> 00:35:56

information is there for free. And they told me no, no, this is all hidden by you know, the Illuminati conspiracy theories of our countries Yanni. And I went and I looked online, and I found everything, to the detail how to start out a word of mine uranium out of

00:35:57--> 00:36:30

everything is there, we just don't do it. Like, it's just the difference between the knowledge being there you knowing it, and then actually fight. Of course, the point was, it was not for anyone to do it. No one did it, by the way. So there's no reason for anyone to go looking for weapons of mass destruction back home, that they would find anything. But the idea is that the difference between knowing something and then being able to practice it, and actually bring it to life and delight, and allow it to flourish. This is why this story is so important, why he spent the last maybe 20 minutes talking before he read, because this is our problem. Yeah, and I know the idea, we talked when we

00:36:30--> 00:36:41

talked about the helicopter was a strong merit of the concept of the idea of the values of the common. Yeah, and the language of the common principles that we all it was a strong narrative, everyone listened to that and felt like, wow, we can do something and you

00:36:42--> 00:37:20

read well flows, you know, personally makes a big difference for us. So we can see. But this is by far the most, the biggest problem we have, we can't seem to go from knowing things to practicing them properly. Because our view is partial. It's, it's not holistic, we can't undo there's a difference between what the nurse what the text is literally saying, and the spirit of the nurse, what the text is trying to do for you how it's trying to help you. Because sometimes the literal, the literal practice of it is impossible, you can literally practice everything in it, because there's a lot of changes today. But if you understand why that text exists, what the goal of these

00:37:20--> 00:37:33

ideas are, then you can practice it within your own circumstances and serve the purpose of it. But that takes a different that takes courage that takes depth that takes practice, meaning you have to go on ground.

00:37:35--> 00:37:38

I'll give you an example of this before I started reading just this is just a final example.

00:37:40--> 00:37:46

I think it's become quite No, no, my the view I have on music, which is usually against the the mainstream

00:37:47--> 00:38:23

opinions on it. I don't see any problem with instruments. It's all about the lyrics and domestics that exists within it. As long as that is okay, then I see no problem with you listening to Beethoven or Mozart or Bach, or whatever you want to do. It's not a problem. It's based on a number of issues, theoretical 50 issues that I'm capable of talking about. And I have an opinion. No, I'm not the only one who has this opinion. Many scholars before it did, I'm gonna give you an example of something that will kind of put things in perspective for you, all the scholars who lived in the Middle East, so in my country, Saudi Arabia today, Egypt or Iraq, right, those they all saw it to be

00:38:23--> 00:38:58

in, it's not good. This is how we shouldn't be doing. These are relatively places on the planet that didn't have much interest in music. The most closed minded way of thought within Sunni Islamic law are a group of people called the water heater. Yep. you've ever heard over here, they're extremely difficult. They, yeah, and they have rulings that are almost impossible for you to even make sense of you might have been hasn't been with a lot of them. And all of them are one of the most knowledgeable scholars but he was very, very close minded on issues of faith to the point where if you were to ask your daughter if she wanted to get married, do you like him? And he says, yes, that

00:38:58--> 00:39:09

doesn't count. Because a prophet is always I'm said that in vicar isn't awesome to her. I mean, the version her when she gives permission is when she's quiet. She doesn't because she's no idea is that she's usually a little bit

00:39:10--> 00:39:25

shy, so she won't say yes to her father. But if you said yes, then it doesn't cut it. For you. It has him saying this is no no, she has to be quiet when she quiet. No. She said yes. Okay. So it doesn't count. But she said yes. No, it doesn't count. Yes, you have to be quiet. That's how we view things. Is this how you view things?

00:39:26--> 00:39:36

When you look at his face, he is one of the most prominent scholars that we have that have no problem with music at all. No problem at all with music. You know why? Tell me why.

00:39:37--> 00:39:38

Like why

00:39:39--> 00:39:45

he lived in Spain, he lived in Dallas. He had to get on the ground and look around, and then suddenly like

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

so this is the ruling I have in theory, and this is what I have to deal with. So one needs to be studied the whole thing and amalickiah who also say It's haram, if you study philharmagic Andalusi it doesn't have a problem. So if you study the Maliki Yeah, that

00:40:00--> 00:40:32

books that were written in endless like you want to be and then you'll find it no problem. Why? Because they were there they were what they were observing something different. They were on the ground they had to deal with realities that people also didn't deal with. And that is the beauty of understanding the deen that a lot of issues when it comes to ruling is specifically rulings. Now I'm not talking about theology theology hasn't changed since the Malays to them since the definition of Allah subhanaw taala has not changed from the exact same every prophet has taught the exact same thing. Now EULA Halal Allah is untouchable in everything that is, you know, that is attached to it

00:40:32--> 00:40:51

has been exactly the same. But the practices, the rulings, it's a different thing. These things change based on where you are and what the reality isn't with it to a certain extent, of course, like within within the lines that Islam allows you to put stuff in, but I'm given but there's a lot of examples like that in the show. Yeah. And the problem today is that

00:40:53--> 00:41:31

we're scared of actually taking a good, deep look at where we are as Muslims and what's happening around us. We're scared. It's just I feel the fear, and the tones and the voices of a lot of people who speak in the name of the dean. It's very easy, by the way, it's very easy, he's playing it safe. They just slap her arm and everything. There's no courage in that. That is totally easy. I've no really that's the easiest thing in the world. Right? It takes courage and it takes depth and it takes a lot of work. And it takes a lot of Yanni back and forth for you to actually take a look and critique something that was said long time ago, especially when it comes to rulings it takes a lot.

00:41:31--> 00:41:46

Because you're gonna be you know, people gonna go after you. They're gonna try and call you looked at you and faster than you will try and destroy the dean. And, yeah, it's easy to say everything's Hell was easy. What does that take? Actually, you win a lot of popularity amongst the mainstream.

00:41:47--> 00:42:17

But you don't fix problems on the ground. Youth are still lost, communities are still weak, and numbers are falling, and ratios are becoming smaller. And that is where the problem exists today. Yes, the number of people in the masjid are higher or bigger. Yeah, but, but the percentages are not. Of course, the number is going to be bigger because more people exist on the planet. Are the percentages higher? Are there more? No, it's not the percentages are lower, much lower, much lower, I need to get eight out of 10 people

00:42:19--> 00:42:52

or to get eight out of 100 people, or 18 of 100 people 18 You have 10 more. But there's 100 there and 10. Here, how can you see this is the same. This is working. That is not even though the numbers here are higher than the numbers here. But this is not working, because there's something missing there. And that is that comes from practical understanding of the deep meaning actually going on ground. And that's what the story teaches. That's why I think the story is extremely important. And Musa alayhis salam we start from the story, basically when Musa ASAM tells you SHA his, his intern yellow, we're going, where are we going, what you'll find out, just come with me, I want you to be

00:42:52--> 00:43:27

with me. And that's another thing is that most Ali Sinha wanted not to be the only person who's going to learn, he wanted someone else to learn with him. So the generosity of making sure more than one person learns that's number one. Number two is that he didn't mind showing his students how he learned as well. And I, I've seen that in my life a lot. A lot of my teachers would take me with them when they went to learn the dubs from someone who was higher higher rank than them in Islamic knowledge is I got to see my shave, sit down and learn. And I saw just got to see the idea of of polybutylene. From him, we sat down and he learned from someone who's a bit more knowledgeable than

00:43:27--> 00:43:55

him within a certain field or a certain within a certain science, and is what most of them did by calling his father to come with him. Because you would think that if it was embarrassing that he didn't know he would tell it can't anyone with him. Right? Is that what we do? I don't know much about his name. So I go, I go over I go overseas, I study for four years, and I come back with a turban and now I have the shape and everyone has to listen to me by and take a loan with me because I don't want people to see how humiliating it is to learn and to go through. It's not even that's not what I come back alone. Take someone with you let them just be there you hold on to usability.

00:43:55--> 00:44:13

You hold on to your humble is when you do he took a photo with him. He didn't have to. I can't see any point of him taking this kid. Like you wish I did not have to go What did he do? Nothing he what he did, he forgot something, you're gonna see you're gonna make a mistake. Like he's gonna make the oh, he was asked to do one thing just to play the thing that was done himself. And yet he didn't do it.

00:44:14--> 00:44:38

Like when you take your son with you, and you give them the simplest task and he still doesn't do you can do that simple task and why did I bring you with me? You should take them with you everywhere. How else are they going to learn how to behave? If they don't go with you? If you're sitting at home telling him you have to speak like this and act like this and stand like this and walk like this sit like this. And that's it. And you never take them to they can see how you do it then right we say ended up

00:44:40--> 00:44:59

with this. Right you learn when you go when you sit with people you way more than you go to school. School is just the theory. Unfortunately, it's even bad theories and a lot of times not even done well. But my status is different when you learn how to present yourself and speak to people and listen and you see different. You see the diversity of the community around you and understand and watch your dad how he carries him

00:45:00--> 00:45:08

Have you learned and this is the beauty of little points I thought were worthy before we got yellow we begin now of course there's not much time left but inshallah we will be able to read

00:45:10--> 00:45:13

him in a shape on your body

00:45:17--> 00:45:20

Bismillah R Rahman R what he

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

is all

00:45:37--> 00:45:37


00:45:40--> 00:45:43

imagine a harrowing

00:45:50--> 00:45:52

and we're hopeful

00:45:56--> 00:46:04

Alright, so this is talking about this first. So we've got a moose and when moose it is said I'm told his Fatah his intern his, his the boy that was with him

00:46:05--> 00:46:06

was of course you shall be known Alehissalaam

00:46:09--> 00:46:12

I will not give up, I will not quit, I will not cease

00:46:13--> 00:46:53

blue until I reach. And I've always loved that those four words, put it on their own. I think it's something you can even write and put it on your wall, above or below, I will not quit until I reach my destination, I will not quit until I find what I'm looking for a blog until I reach a destination, I will not see someone that turned back, I'm gonna quit, I will not stop. I will not give up until I reach. I think it's something that's the first word most at least that I've said that we're going to I have a quest to have to do something, and I will not stop. And I will not give up until I reach Maji miles behind the junction of the two seas.

00:46:54--> 00:46:58

Where that is well i No one knows. No one has an idea is it was it a

00:46:59--> 00:47:37

lake in a river, whether it was at sea and river was at a sea and a lake? No one we don't really know, I don't think is really important. To be honest, I see no importance of this whatsoever. What I do think is interesting is the fact that because when you think of what was the point of that, of those words, if you didn't know that, you know, it was miles behind where he was going to the junction of the two seas, would that have changed anything for you in the story? Really not that much. Like there's really no point of us knowing that unless there's symbol here, there's a symbolic issue here, when I've been talking to you about for the last 10 minutes was when the theory when the

00:47:37--> 00:48:17

information finally meets the practice, and things work magic behind the junction of the two seas, when Theory and Practice finally come together. So there's symbolism in it, there's a something a bit of symbolism here that moves it said I was finally going to go to a place because that's what it was taught by Allah subhanaw taala you're gonna go to my lane, and there you're going to find this other and what this how you're going to know is that something dead will come to life, another symbolic issue, another symbol, more symbolism, something that will finally find life. Right theory is lifeless. Right? And then you bring it to reality and it has life again and then it lives. You

00:48:17--> 00:48:57

know when the when I actually was asked how was the prophet? So I said this character she said kind of Quran? Isn't that exactly what we're talking about here that his character was the Quran. Quran is just words, it's not alive, yet. It's alive through you. When you start practicing, and then it's alive. Now we can see it, we can see in motion. Right now you're saying that the symbolic the symbolism, the junction of the two sees when the theory and practice comes together, what happens then dead, death lives, something dead will live forever. When the practice is alone, with no knowledge is just mistake after mistake after mistake after mistake. Theory is meaningless, until

00:48:57--> 00:49:30

it's practice with them together, and then you grant life. And then you bring life I have always thought that to be a beautiful, beautiful, because what else? Why else do we need to know this much about buying? I can't think of anything like I actually looked into it for a long time. Why would he possibly tell us this? And why did I need to know about the fish in the dead fish? Why don't you just move on to tell me when he meets love the solder? And what happened? That whole point? No, it was not pointless. It was actually very painful. It's very, it's symbolic. And I think most that he did as he went through this hit him slowly. That yes, this is what I'm missing. I'm missing the

00:49:30--> 00:49:58

other, the other 50% of my equation. It's easy. It's not very hard by the way to accumulate knowledge. It in five, six years. If you dedicate yourself you can memorize it a lot of different texts and study a lot of Iranian Islamic knowledge as you can be quite knowledgeable, more than 95% of them. But it doesn't mean anything if you don't know how to practice any of it. If you don't know how to speak of it, how to bring it to life, how to practice it yourself and how to help others practices doesn't do anything. Doesn't do anything.

00:49:59--> 00:50:00

We still have

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


00:50:02--> 00:50:10

shows on TV where the guy is sitting and someone falls in with it, and he just gives him the photo. And it's just that same. It's been happening all along now for

00:50:11--> 00:50:11

500 years.

00:50:13--> 00:50:47

50 years, every time about I want you to do something every time before Ramadan over two weeks before Ramadan, watch them the same questions every year. So if no one has ever fasted before, is the first Ramadan ever and the same questions What can we say I will lay the when, why why? Why is it this disconnection between once what's the problem? We do Ramadan as a product, that's why Romans beautiful because it's practice. I'm going on here, do it live like this for three days. Let's see how it works for you. And when we freak out, we don't like it. We've tried to run away from it. We tried to take our time off. We don't you sleep all day, we try to find some ways we don't practice

00:50:47--> 00:50:56

it. No, no practice here practice. And we struggle. It's, it's hard. Of course, it's hard. But it's practice, you get to try it, you get to see how it works, you get to put it into motion, and then you know find out about yourself.

00:50:57--> 00:50:59

So you know the symbolism here

00:51:00--> 00:51:08

until I reach the junction of the two seas, which I think are the symbolism of this symbolic understanding of a theory and practice

00:51:10--> 00:51:13

or a spend trying to reach it so

00:51:14--> 00:51:53

I will not cease I will not quit until I reach I think that's a beautiful forward Yanni slogan for anyone to carry in their lives, I will not quit till I reach I'm only talking about or I spend trying to reach many, many years. HEPA is a period of time usually it's a big period of time. Usually it's within decades, close to a century. So only a couple of I'm really willing to spend the rest of my life looking for this person until I learned the most is and I'm heard that he could learn something he could seek knowledge, knowledge that would he does not have that Allah subhanaw taala is telling him you need that you don't have you need this knowledge or else Or else you know,

00:51:53--> 00:52:30

Allah subhanaw taala wouldn't have corrected him. No, maybe there's people in the world who knew more than Musa regarding, you know, the different species of pigeons? Maybe they know but how important is that to Musa alayhis salam and his message? No big deal does Musa have to go and learn that you have to go and know every detail of botany and geology you know, you need what you need in order to function properly and do your role better. Musa was told by Allah there's someone who knows more than you. Of course he meant within the knowledge that you need to know meaning you're lacking something Musa in your knowledge when it comes to faith and it comes to practice so it comes to you

00:52:30--> 00:52:47

someone who knows more than you. So most when he heard that I will not stop until I find him and I learned from this person and that's that's the idea here we save time for a shower Do you have another minute okay, we'll wait until that time after the end because only three seconds notice that day after shop

00:52:50--> 00:52:51

there's someone making it no

00:52:54--> 00:52:54


00:52:59--> 00:53:09

okay, recite the second day Insha Allah, Allah we finish on these two is today at the end. For them. Bella was mad, you're mad at him next year, who to Whom

00:53:17--> 00:53:21

therefore, their sebelah who feel heavy sell all the

00:53:26--> 00:53:34

philam bellava. And when they finally reached when they reached Majima urbini Hema, the junction of those two C's main Hema that's between the two C's.

00:53:36--> 00:53:38

So basically, they arrived where they needed to arrive.

00:53:40--> 00:54:19

And they didn't find what the what they were looking to find. Now the sign that Allah gave them was that something that would live and is basically what he was taught. So he wasn't told that the fish that you had with you for your lunch is going to live, he was told that you will find death and you will see life be put into it, which is of course something very young, you don't see that at all. Forget whatever you do never see that. And of course the symbolism there is that when finally Theory and Practice meet, you know life starts actual life and you can bring life to societies and to individuals when they understand what it is that they need to do and they have the ability to

00:54:19--> 00:54:53

actually do it properly. And that's how and that's what we're missing as Muslims we can we can talk the talk and we can't walk the walk for some reason and Inshallah, that this will change me in the law to Allah there'll be the will is there for Muslims today all around the world, from different age groups and different backgrounds to change that there is the will and you can see it everywhere that people are tired of listening of talking, they're tired of the status of the Ummah being where it is today. And they don't want that to continue and they want to see some change that change is going to come from this very simple concept that we're studying today is going to come from the fact

00:54:53--> 00:55:00

that find one point the theory has to be brought to life by practice and then everything will change inshallah you

00:55:00--> 00:55:38

That will be the something Charlotte will see that begin or start happening or happen as we speak it within our lives within that data. And all it takes is just one generation of individuals that are getting the most out of just taking it on them to stop reading it passively and start practicing seeing it actively. So for them, imagine I've been email when they finally reached the junction of those two C's, let's see who to whom. They stayed around for a while, and they didn't see the sign. So they kept on going. Meaning of course, the junction of two of two seats or two bodies of water is not going to be one point. It's not going to be like one meter is going to be a big area. So he

00:55:38--> 00:56:18

arrived at the beginning of it, they sat down, they didn't see anything, so they continue to walk. Okay, let's keep on going. Maybe it's up ahead a bit because this is like this whole areas, the junction. So you wish I was supposed to keep his eye open. First for something like that. And to just hold on to the lunch that they had. He, he forgot. He forgot about the he lost the fish or the lunch that they had. But the thing was huge. I saw it. So huge. I actually saw the lunch that they had meaning in the basket was the fish he opened it to take a look at his lunch and and the fish that he had. He got himself prepared for any further lunge jumped out of the box kind of went into

00:56:18--> 00:56:50

the water. He saw that movie I said, I'm not sleeping, but you wish I was a young guy and he forgot he slept and he woke up and he just walked me hi Musa, you forgot to tell him that oh, by the way, our lunch general decided to meet it made its way to the end of the sea. And if you didn't see the symbolism, and I think it's interesting that you wish I couldn't see the symbolism himself. He was young. And when he was told you're going to see death and something live. He didn't make the connection immediately. Mousavi said I'm dead and that shows you that sometimes younger people they struggle with that they'll always struggle it takes the wisdom of the older generations to be able

00:56:50--> 00:57:23

to help with taking theory into practice they need it they need the example they have to see you do it. You can explain to them as many times as you want how to introduce themselves how to speak to people who are older than them or younger than them but if they don't see you do it they will not know how to do it you wish I was told the symbols told the sign and he couldn't and he still he forgot about it he didn't it didn't click with him immediately but wake up mosaic mosaic what you told me no, we just said this is weird. Maybe the maybe the the fish wasn't dead to begin with or whatever he forgot about it. And but Dakhla this Aveda who full body salamanders fish took its way

00:57:23--> 00:58:01

into the into the sea and became a mirage set about like I said, I mean you couldn't see it anymore. It made its way quickly into it. It was it was it was full of life. It wasn't just flopping it was actually striding into the into the sea. And I think I think this, this little point here is is worthy of taking a moment and thinking about it. You want your kid to respect you love you then show them how you treat your parents. And if not your parents, show them how you treat your uncles or your elders, let them go with you. I remember something I'm 30 something now. And I remember when I was I think nine or 10. I went with my older uncle. I was named after him. So he has the same name

00:58:01--> 00:58:38

as the oldest uncle. And he was 60 something back then like 61 or 62 was an old guy. And it was really it was a kid. I remember we went and we visited his aunt. So my my great aunt, and she was around 75 or 76. And I remember my uncle who was at the time one of the elders of the village, he was very well renowned, a very well respected person. And he's coming to his aunt and he came in the 65 year old 6162 year old guy, he comes up to my aunt and he kisses her hand, he goes down to kiss her hand and she pulls it back. And I've never forgotten that since like that that image has never left me since that one moment because I and I was told a million times like as a kid that this house

00:58:38--> 00:59:10

was to deal with people who are older than you deserve respect. Of course, it's just a way of people you know, practicing in the Middle East. Not everyone has to do it like that. But that's how you know people practice and I was always told this is how you're supposed to treat your elders. This is how it was supposed to do it. I never did it. Like I could never do it. And then I saw my 61 year old uncle do it. And then it became easy. It was no big deal. I saw it understood that this okay, this is how you how it needs to be. It's it's hard for younger people to take the theory and turn it into practice they need people older. The intern of Musa Lucia saw something that did that live

00:59:10--> 00:59:17

again and he still actually didn't make the connection between what Allah Subhanallah told him and what he got to see he couldn't make the connection because he was young

00:59:20--> 00:59:53

so the symbol was that you're going to see life being put into something that's already dead, like a dead animal or a dead tree that could be going to see something for issue with life. That was the symbol with no specification yeah the the fish was in the basket with the you know the Bara tends to be like they had put all the spices it was ready to eat, just have to get it and once he opened the basket, it jumped out went to the sea and it actually went into the sea. Musa was asleep. I wish I didn't make the connection. Right because I think this was this is the point of the story is that sometimes you don't make that connection. They need someone older to make the connection for them.

00:59:53--> 01:00:00

He slept and then when he woke up you'll see he'll walk with Musa and it'll be a while later. I think after Musa

01:00:00--> 01:00:17

Talking about things until he kind of hit him. Oh, by the way, I think I think what reminded him of it was hunger. Like when they finally said okay, let's have our lunch. What oh, by the way our lunch. This is what this is what happened. So it just the story has a little twist to it I guess. Regarding that point do we have like a few more minutes to read and I

01:00:19--> 01:00:20

know alright.

01:00:22--> 01:00:30

Let's just read one article, just everything we talked about, and then we'll go in shallow for them. magia was orderly feta, Tina

01:00:35--> 01:00:35


01:00:40--> 01:00:43

la parte de la ping in mean Severina.

01:00:51--> 01:00:56

When they finally passed the junction of the two C's where they were looking for it, the sign

01:00:58--> 01:01:22

he told us he tells moose Isom tells us interview shot at Nevada and I bring lunch bring what we have for lunch, bring the fish that we're going to eat. Look at the Latina minster Farina heard, and also we have gained a lot of nasaga is tiredness or fatigue. So we become very tired from this suffer from suffering from this travel. This travel has brought us a lot of tiredness and fatigue and I'm hungry, bring our lunch. And at that point,

01:01:23--> 01:02:05

it hits, you know, young you shot that oh, by the way that's happened. And you'll see how Musa deals with that and how he speaks to it. And you can see it's a very, the story is, again, it's talking about taking the theory of knowledge and turning it into practice. The practice with no knowledge is just a series of myths endless mistakes, theory without, without practices, just words that are there are lifeless. The junction of the two C's that are symbolic here in this story is basically being able to take the theory and turn it into practice, which is what most hadn't done yet. Because Musa spent the first half of his of his life just trying to get fit out into the free that is really

01:02:05--> 01:02:40

it's and he had hidden he wasn't given the chance at this point to actually take everything he knew, and put it into practice with his people. And because of that he lacked certain understandings. And Allah Subhanallah told them, Go learn from this person, go learn the difference between what you know, and actually putting it into practice and making it making it work and making it bring its fruits in his results. So he took us out with them and they went the symbolism was that you're going to find a junction of a two C's theory and practice and at that moment, life will be granted you will see something dead that will suddenly have life and I think the symbolism in that is enough for

01:02:41--> 01:02:50

a couple of a couple of sessions on his own just understanding that concept to be the latter Allah Jonnie boots make clear we'll start with that much will continue to show next week. Are we still good after Monday?

01:02:51--> 01:03:04

Do we continue after we're good with after McClure Michela is easier for me I get to go home a bit earlier if you can say Dr. Moreau so I think we'll stay off your modem until probably they change the time once you take the time will go to attract attention. Okay, so

01:03:06--> 01:03:07

what's that Allah Hi see them Hamilton
