So the page number, no, that is not the same thing. That's a very different, you have to go to the Surah, number 18. So it'll go up and then look for a number 71. We're going to start with 71. Inshallah. All right, so without him, I think we can do a little bit, I mean, a lot more slowly, I see the Mohammed remain. We're very excited the first 70, I have to say, we're now in the middle of the third story

00:00:23--> 00:00:27

of the Surah, we're coming, we're coming closer to the end of the surah. Yeah, it's only

00:00:28--> 00:00:35

three pages and a bit, it'll be done. We've done most most of the surah. So hopefully, I'm thinking maybe in six more sessions, and then it'll be over.

00:00:36--> 00:01:10

However, we are in the middle of the most interesting surah. By far in this in this era, like by far the most interesting story. I don't think there's a more interesting story in the Quran. The way that it's what he's talking about the actual events of the story, who's who's in the story, and the outcome of it is just very, very unique. I can't think of any other story that is close to it or talks about a similar topic. I think there's a Hickman that there's some wisdom, that Allah subhanaw taala has something very, very, very difficult to talk about a very, very delicate a topic or an issue. That is very,

00:01:11--> 00:01:51

I guess, dangerous. If people misunderstand or misinterpret, that is comes in the form of only one story. So it's understood once and the norm is being put maybe too many generations or 20 stories could cause cause some confusion, or will allow for more misinterpretation if if people want to do it. But where we are in the story now, or what the story is talking about. This is the third story short look after the guy that talks about the four tools that are that are used for the building of societies and communities at the same time, the four tools that could be the source of Fitton, if you want to look at it from that angle. And the first two topics, first of all, stories are the

00:01:51--> 00:02:29

theology or the ideology, the idea, when and that is represented by the story of Africa, half the people of the cave, and individuals who made the difference made the change in their society, based on the idea that they had, they came up with some with a with a set of values with a list of, of fundamental principles that they that they adhere to, and they taught and they worked with, and people accepted and, and later on, took on and they were able to change their their community almost completely. The second story was about wealth. And it talked about the two men and the two orchards. And this went into a lot of depth, talking about the concept, the perception of materialism, and

00:02:29--> 00:03:02

positions and talked about wealth. And I found that that we talked about that in a lot of detail on we took a lot of time, to be honest, he spent a lot of time talking about that story, because of his importance and the relevance of the topic itself, which is, you know, wealth and materialistic possessions. The third story talks about knowledge. The third tool, and knowledge is, today is something or science if you want, if you want to call it science, today, in the society that we live in, in the time that we live in the place that we live in, we're very sad, I guess lucky or fortunate to be where we are at the time that we are we are seeing things that people are our

00:03:02--> 00:03:06

grandfathers and grandmothers would find to be completely

00:03:07--> 00:03:42

unpassed impossible, they would they wouldn't, they wouldn't believe you. If you told them that you have what you have, or you're seeing, they wouldn't believe you. If you just explain to them your day to day routine, meaning what is it that you did and where you go and how you do what you do and how you communicate, because now we're seeing you know, the miracle of, of critical thinking and, and scientific research. However, knowledge is a double edged sword, if it's not combined with the concept of Rama of mercy as as the servant and this sort of story depicts and explains it can become very, very dangerous, most earliest and I'm thought he was the most knowledgeable person in the

00:03:42--> 00:04:19

world at the time because he was the highest ranking Prophet alive at the time, and only made sense to him because he spoke to Allah subhanaw taala. Personally, no one else did that he would be the most knowledgeable. He didn't think he was being arrogant. He was not trying to be arrogant, he just thought and said what he would made sense to him. However, most artists spent the majority of his life preaching the faith that he knew, meaning he was talking in the theory, he was teaching the theory he had yet to see the practical implementation of the theory that he had, most artists have had not moved. The ideas that you had from the realm of of being theories, if you're at a theatrical

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


00:04:21--> 00:04:40

just to actual practice on ground moves. I've not done that yet. So when he when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada heard most of them say that he said, give you say, No, you're not the most knowledgeable person on the world. The most knowledgeable person in the world is a man who lives in a certain place. And I gave him my family battling the place where the two oceans come together.

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

The junction between two oceans. And Mussolini said when he was told that that there's someone more knowledgeable than he then he was he decided to embark on a journey to go and find that person and learn from him because this is the job of every person in every every high ranking person, every person who actually understands the value of knowledge and the value of of information will go and do that and when

00:05:00--> 00:05:32

Say someone and he and he and he took us out with him and they went looking for this person to be educated to learn from him. Now, what is it that this person has that moves out? He does not have? Does he have more theory than Musa No, no one had more theory than Musashi. So however, he had the practical knowledge, this person understood the implementation, he had a much more holistic comprehension of the faith and the religion of Allah subhana wa, he understood the world in a more holistic manner. Why because it wasn't just theory. It was also it was also practice and Musa ism had not seen the practice yet. He needed this story on Instagram before he started his journey with

00:05:32--> 00:06:07

many. This basically happened just after the Christ have had see. And before he started organizing his people had never actually done anything practical with his people was all just be patient be perseverant. Here's the rulings. But he wasn't actually running a society yet. So he got this opportunity to go and learn from 100 orphan this added Mineva Allah subhanaw taala, who Allah whom Allah gave Rahman and Medina who I met him and Dino alumno, Milena Elmet, you got this opportunity to go learn how he did, he went learn. And we found this person to be extremely knowledgeable. The moment moves on he said, I'm spoke to him and told him and of course, the we talked about the

00:06:07--> 00:06:43

symbolism and the junction between two oceans, right theory and practice, when they come together, what happens something dead becomes alive in Grant's life. And that is, and that is the truth about the faith that you carry, you're a Muslim, if you if the theory that you under if you understand Islam properly, theoretically, and then you have the ability to practice and implement it properly, then Yanni all all that is dead within you will come to life and societies that seems to have no hope, there's no hope for them will suddenly be granted life again, and it will be prosperous, and they will thrive. The reason is because Allah subhanaw taala gives us

00:06:44--> 00:07:21

principles gives us concepts to think about ideas to understand, and then when you practice them to practice takes a bit more, yeah, you have to be a bit ready for that it's gonna be, it's not going to always be exactly the way you thought it was going to be. It's not always going to be as easy and as as clear, clear cut as, as you assumed it was going to be, it's easy to memorize the formula, however, you know, implemented in the in the in the equation, or actually be able to use it on a day to day routine, or actually take the formula that you understood. And when you're given a problem solve the problem using the form is a whole different ballgame is very different. You can study all

00:07:21--> 00:07:54

the pieces of the car, but then actually putting it together and taking it as a whole different things. You can study medicine, understand all the diseases in what and then actually finding, diagnosing and then treating is a different thing. Always a difference between theory and practice. And we have the same problem as every other part of life as Muslims. Most of them had that issue. He thought he was the most talented because he had the theory, but he didn't have the practice. He wasn't on the ground. Do we have that problem today as Muslims? Do we have a lot of talk and not much action? Do we have Gandhi a countless number of gurus and I need the Halacha 28. But but a

00:07:54--> 00:08:23

very, very small number of people who are actually on the ground, doing the work dealing with the youth and dealing with people and trying to solve problems and fix it and come up with solutions and seeing the actual issues that people are going through? Yes, we have the same problem. Actually, it's growing, meaning we're more and more disconnected every day because of the fact that we don't, we're not actually on the ground, because it's messy on the ground. And it's not pure, this is pure, this is beautiful. I can explain these ideas to you love them, you'll you'll fall in love with these. Find them so beautiful and so clear. But then go show me how are you going to practice this

00:08:23--> 00:08:52

stuff. The process is messy, because people have different ways of understanding and people deal with it differently have different type of problems, that variables are unlimited when you're dealing with human beings. So it's not as clear it's not as smooth, right? Like it not to be smooth. You want everyone to be perfect all our kids to be great, you know, father and all of them come into mischief quietly with this knock on their heads and sit down and make dua quietly they're standing. That's what you want. And we don't see that we get annoyed. You know, if you don't if not if your son is not, you know, a good Muslim right on his own by himself doing everything that you want to do

00:08:52--> 00:09:20

you get all the why he wants to What are you doing? Why? Because the theory because that's what you read, because you read that Sally Mola, David did that. And zeta and Fabian was like that you think that everyone's going to be like that, because Zaid was the commander of an army at 17 You think your Sunday's gonna be the same thing? No, that's theory, learning. The theory is beautiful, and it's helpful and allows you to it gives you the wide spectrum of information, but then the practice is different, the variables are many, and you have to understand that things the outcome is always going to be different and you have to be ready for that and you have to be able to understand the

00:09:20--> 00:09:32

spirit of the knowledge so you can bend and be and be flexible. So things actually the so the outcome is is actually acceptable at the end, and that is where we

00:09:33--> 00:09:52

unfortunately as Muslims, we seem we seem to feel we still don't know how to do that properly. Insha Allah and he maybe the next generation will learn from the story of Musa Ali Salman Musa and love the Saudi and they'll benefit from it. So where we are in the story he moves after he told them I want to follow you learned to aluminum limped OSHA in

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

I will follow you and you will teach me Inshallah, from what you know, to allow me to achieve rush

00:10:00--> 00:10:31

Arusha, as I told you, is basically taking knowledge or taking a situation and then making the best of it. Making sure that you're doing the best you can in terms of being successful in this world and being successful in the hereafter. That's what the wash that means. That's why we when you go back, you rewind the Surah, to the story of Africa, you will find that they said the same thing. Well, he Atlanta, Emory, now Russia, when they retreat into the cave network, they said there's a Europe, this is our plan. And you know, please allow us from our matter, give us something that is Russia that will allow us something better than our own plan. We have a plan. This is a plan. This seems to

00:10:31--> 00:11:01

be the best plan we have. But Europe you have a better plan where the outcome will be better Europe grant us the better outcome, are you gonna grant us the better plan or give us the guidance so we can find it but we did the best we can do. And most Alia Sam had the information he needs Russia he needs how I'm going to use this information to actually help people to actually make a difference in people's lives and allow them to live happier and live better and be more productive and then reach the ultimate goal of going to Jenna, how do I do that? So he told him right off the bat in Nicoletta dystopia, Maya Sabra, okay, you can come with me, however, you will not be able to be patient with

00:11:01--> 00:11:33

me, you're not going to be able to stay for long, you're going to find this to be too difficult for you. This is a man who is very knowledgeable. Being knowledgeable means not only do you understand what the information, you know how people are going to react to it, and you understand that reaction, meaning you're not getting frustrated, by the way people are reacting to certain things, you know, that's how they're going, that is normal, this is how the reactions going to be. And you have that open mindedness that allows you to even accept the fact that people react to what you have to say differently. If you only take that from this surah, then you've taken a whole lot. It is the

00:11:33--> 00:11:57

only thing you end up walking away from this thorough with, then you taken with you will lay a good, something good. When you go home, and you get frustrated with your kid or your wife on something they did. If you are truly up no one person of knowledge if you truly, because that's what you claim to be when you're talking to your children or talking to your spouse or talking to people around you. You're trying to explain to them how you know what you're talking about is important. If you're truly a person of knowledge, you'd also know you would also know why is it that they don't seem to accept what what you're seeing.

00:11:59--> 00:12:28

Because when you know why they're not accepting, then you're not you're less likely to be frustrated, and you're not, you're not in awe of it, you understand? Yeah, it's normal for you to say stuff like this, and people not to accept it immediately. Because they have problems home back home, or they have environmental problems, or they have issues of judgment or insight. Or there's different things that cause these issues, and moves and Hubbard told them you can come however, you will not be able to be patient with what I have to say what gave and then he tells them why so that Musa doesn't feel bad about himself. So he doesn't it's not like you're just you're just not it's

00:12:28--> 00:12:55

not like you're too stupid to learn this or you don't know what you're talking about. You're just not committed enough? No, you won't be able to stick with me for long. Well, can you just veto it MLM to have to be a cobra? And how could you How could you be patient with me, if you don't encompass the whole knowledge of every everything we're going to do, meaning you only have a part of the picture. Because you don't have the full picture, you won't be able to stick with me for long, but that's okay, you can come with me anyway, you'll learn something from this, we go back, you'll look into it, and then you'll benefit from it. But I know you won't be able to be patient. So I'm

00:12:55--> 00:13:05

already he's already telling him what's going to happen. And he's giving an excuse so that the person doesn't have to feel bad about himself when he makes the mistakes. Because most of them they make feed mistakes in a row. And had you know, this, this very knowledgeable person had

00:13:06--> 00:13:38

not told him about it, he would have maybe felt very bad about themselves or felt that he's not worthy, you know, told them you're not gonna be able to do it. I know why, because you just haven't encompassed the whole knowledge. And I think that I know, I've talked about that a lot last time. But I really think it's worthy of your time. That is one of the demean is 68 and sort of one of the most beautiful and important and deep if that exists in the Quran? Yes. How is it that you're going to be patient towards something that you don't understand fully? Can you be patient? Can you stick to something? Can you commit to something be patient, awesome, it also means commitment.

00:13:38--> 00:14:10

Perseverance is commitments in his essence. So can you commit to something that you don't understand fully Malam to have to be Hilbre, we don't have the full picture. No, you cannot, you're not asked to, you're not asked to and you shouldn't be asking others to either. If your kids don't understand Islam, fully, they don't have the full picture, then they cannot commit to it. And you shouldn't be asking them to, if you'd like, oh, I don't know the full picture, then go learn it. So you can teach it or take them to someone who can. You cannot expect yourself or anyone else to commit to something they don't understand. If they don't understand that they don't. Normally they will commit, they

00:14:10--> 00:14:39

commit to something they don't understand there must be something wrong with them. Sorry, there must be something wrong with their comprehension. If they're going to commit to something they don't understand. As a Muslim, you were never asked, you're never asked to commit to something you don't understand. You were asked to turn your brain on and think and process. And slowly, rationally, logically, go through everything that Allah subhanaw taala is saying and see if it makes sense. If you if you make sense of all of it, and you're capable of understanding it, then you can commit to it commit to it fully. Yes.

00:14:40--> 00:15:00

connection in that verse. Is that what you're saying that there's a connection between not getting frustrated, and mercy being merciful? Yes, exactly. That's the whole point that he, he doesn't. He doesn't even want them to feel frustrated at the end. He doesn't want them to feel that he is not worthy of following him. So he told him what's going to happen

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

But he told him why. So Musa would feel okay about the fact that he's going to react like this. It's like, you're going to react like this. It's impossible that you won't, but it's okay. Because this is the reason so most of what he reacts like, that doesn't feel like he was, you know,

00:15:13--> 00:15:41

he did something wrong. It was explained to him that this is the reason and we'll say Sam was OK with it. That's out of mercy. When a teacher, when your teacher tells you, it's okay, you don't understand this. That's okay. It's fine. It's Oh, it's normal for you to understand that there isn't that that's the type of teacher that you stick to like I can he's not making me feel bad about myself. I'm not feeling like I'm dumb because I didn't understand this from the first time and he gives you time again and and he understands why is it that you're not making sense of it after the first and second or third time and he's able to help you with that those are educators that have

00:15:42--> 00:15:46

because very easy to teach differently. It's very easy to teach in a different way.

00:15:48--> 00:16:19

I don't want to say I don't want to sound you know, mean by saying this, my father taught me math when I was a kid. He's so lucky that he taught me a lot of things that when he came to academics, he was very, you know, made sure I learned a lot I read three I was doing, you know, mathematical equations of two with two variables x and y i was still great three and four, like I was doing really, but my dad didn't he taught me he didn't know how to teach. He wasn't he didn't have the method. So the best thing he could say when he taught me is he would write it down and he was they understand it and that's the heat that understand it and if I didn't understand it, that's all he

00:16:19--> 00:16:51

had understand it again and I felt sometimes it would be very negative because what I'm like and he would tell me turn your brain on and I was always thinking why he's there like a button that I didn't find out that I should be pressing to turn my brain on and so and then he noticed that an Easter egg kind of thing but when the teat when a teacher is not doesn't show mercy then it can bring down the the spirits and that's why this man when Allah Subhanallah called him a person of mercy and and knowledge you saw immediately the effect or the impact of that mercy almost asking for anything he told him okay you can come you won't be able to pick put up with it and this is why and

00:16:51--> 00:17:10

he gave him and most of the exam will walk away with that with information about himself that you know most understands himself more he understands why is it that he couldn't deal with something which is which is true educating and true to helping a total failure to botany and if you if you're going to come with all that in mind for that is onion che I'm gonna need to ask you have one condition and

00:17:13--> 00:17:17

where's the knowledge that I used to come this summer we didn't we didn't start with the knowledge part yet.

00:17:19--> 00:17:19


00:17:24--> 00:17:56

Allah just ordered him to kill the boy to ruin the ship we very efficient Welcome to them. We started with these things today inshallah you can see, it's a very, it's a very interesting issue because he will explain to them at the end Yanni love the father at the end of his encounter with with Mussolini's, and when you're done, you'll say, Okay, we're done. You can't stay with me anymore. Because you broke the condition. I told you the conditions, don't ask me about anything, until I remind you of it later. I'll remind you of it later. But just don't ask me during the time that it's happening, you'll ruin it, you could cause a problem. So just Just be quiet until we're

00:17:56--> 00:18:25

done. And then I'll explain everything for you most of the things that I mean, when he told him you're not gonna be able to do it, like he already told me that he still has to give mosaics and under conditions. When he finally breaks the last condition, he will explain to him everything. And the knowledge of his explanation is what we're going to learn from me and it's going to give us a bigger picture that in sha Allah, I'll share with you at the end of the meeting and I thought it makes sense Janya when we're done with this. So you told him don't ask until I bring or remind you of it. And that's where we stopped last time. At number seven. We will continue from ISO number 771.

00:18:26--> 00:18:52

Again, this is a very, very symbolic and very deep story. There's a lot of things we have to talk about here in order for this story to make full sense, but when it does, when we talk about the Michela it will make complete sense to you and you will find that this story is a very very important story it's a very unique one and it offers the you know offers us a lot a lot to think about a lot to benefit from inshallah so we start from iron number 71 In sha Allah so it's guff I will be let him in a shape on your body

00:18:56--> 00:18:59

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim

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

Allah or

00:19:06--> 00:19:10

either Workiva is Sophie naughty hawk or her

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

need to recall

00:19:29--> 00:19:32

the G che and in

00:19:36--> 00:19:37


00:19:38--> 00:19:44

in a gallon the stuff we forgot or

00:19:49--> 00:19:49


00:19:51--> 00:19:56

fall to his knee the mana seat

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


00:20:01--> 00:20:06

to HIPAA any mean, free or slow.

00:20:10--> 00:20:28

Alright, so this is the first encounter phone follow. com, you have to stop there because three times in this sutra, we're going to hear this beginning of. And I think it's very again, it's very symbolic, and it's very important phone follow call, and then they embarked on a journey or then they went forward. And this is the difference between theory and practice,

00:20:30--> 00:21:06

where you take what you've learned, and you embark and you move forward with it. And then you go to the reality of the world and you take the values that you've learned, you take the information that you have, you take the principles and the concepts that you've obtained and require acquired and by learning Islam, and then you don't, and then you go, and is what is a word that they use for planes, when they lift off. So they were they use the word Tilak. So there were a lot of means when you go for something, but you go for it full throttle, and you're leaving your comfort zone to go into something that is maybe a bit unknown to you, right? But you're going with with strength, you're

00:21:06--> 00:21:34

going with enthusiasm, you're going with energy, that's the word from Paula means go. And then you enter a realm that you may not be totally familiar with, maybe you're not totally comfortable with maybe don't understand exactly what's waiting for you. But you're doing it with enthusiasm with energy anyway, because you have confidence. Why do you have confidence from the theory that you learned from the information that you have, and then you go, and you're going to hit all the realities that are waiting for you. But if you understood things properly, yeah, not only going to obtain more knowledge, and you're going to find out exactly how it's going to be practiced one thing

00:21:35--> 00:21:46

for Yanni for us to talk about, and this isn't exactly what's happening, we can sit down and draw this perfect picture of what an Islamic community needs to look like. And we can sit here and agree almost

00:21:48--> 00:22:25

unanimously on this picture, and then okay, let's actually practice it. How was the practices gonna happen? Yeah, I'll leave. Yeah, even the how to even start trying to start the practices is a nightmare. It's always very difficult to achieve, and you don't even know where to start. And when we start, we find so many different challenges and obstacles in our way and difficulties. Yeah, we agree. We agree fully. We agree fully on the theory. Yes, the community that is supportive of one another, a community that has innovation, and creativity and it fixes and is proactive towards its problems, and it comes up with solutions before the problems actually be are there a community that

00:22:25--> 00:22:58

supports the weakest part, the biggest elements of themselves of children disabled, and those who are like education and those who are ill community that takes care of their youth and make sure that they educate them properly and practice them committee that has all the venues that are needed for professional development and, and educational development and spiritual development and isn't do disagree with anything. I said? Anything I said, right now you're like, you know, I think that we shouldn't have that. Okay, then why can't we get any of that done? Why isn't it doesn't Islam have within it all the reasons it has the message it has the Salawa has Ramadan? It has? It doesn't have

00:22:58--> 00:23:28

all these, it doesn't have the answer. There's religious leadership that is installed into the system of Islam altogether. So you have leadership that is provided for you. It's all there, then why can't we make this work, because the difference between the theory and the practice is just very, the gap has become so big, we don't seem to know how to close it anymore. Maybe learning the story, we can start taking those steps, slowly foam Halacha, they went full throttle into the reality of the world had either a rocky birth is Safina de Kado. Now, some scholars say that you shall no longer follow up disappoint.

00:23:29--> 00:24:10

Meaning Wednesdays actually went on the journey. You wish I stayed behind? And some of them say that no, he went there. He just wasn't quoted in the way that the talk speak or the way that the narrative of the AI so Workiva is is the dual form of the past tense verb of getting on something or writing something which is here regarding the boat or the ship that they got on. So what was he not with them? I'm with a company that no he was with him, he just not the focus of the story. So he wasn't being he's not being quoted or in the narration. So the the two people who are here of importance is the OB the Saudi helicopter and Musa lucidum he's just tagging along he's not only a

00:24:10--> 00:24:18

main character of the story, so he's not being quoted in the narrative however he was there with him. But he could it also could be mean mean that he stayed behind the waiting for Mussolini Saddam to come back.

00:24:22--> 00:24:36

From Takahata Iraqi Safina T Karaca. And then they went forward until they got upon a boat. Their journey took them to a boat when they got on the boat Karaca cork needs to violate something.

00:24:38--> 00:24:54

Violate is a violation here has been referred to as you know making a hole in the boat in the side of the boat or the the lower deck of the boat, but it's a violation basically you're violating something that is not yours, you're touching something that doesn't belong to you and you're harming it in a way that you were not allowed to do.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

That I'm also as I was told by Allah subhanaw taala this guy is the man of wisdom have no

00:25:00--> 00:25:34

wage and mercy. So he believed and he's better than he knows more than he has more knowledge than you. So I'm always that I said no, of course has expectations. And then he gets on the boat with this guy and this guy gets out of the, the sight of the people who allowed him on the boat and then he puts a, he goes down to the lower deck, and then he, you know, he bashes into the boat and leaves some books at ease. And, of course, you're standing there with music, I want you to go on this journey with musante Sam for a moment. I like why I like the idea of USIA because he wasn't quoted here, but he's talking to lon, let's tag along as well. You know, since he's not being quoted

00:25:34--> 00:26:03

anyway, you're the guy who's taking a lot of we can take a long tour, we're not gonna be quoted. So just tag along with Musa no matter if you're walking with Musa and Musa Islam is the recipient of the strong willed prophets of Allah subhanaw taala, the most famous prophets, one of the best people that ever lived, and he'd been told by Allah, this person knows more than you and want you to go to learn from him. Someone, of course, has a lot of expectations. And he's being very how you see how politeness has been he came up to him, he spoke to him very, Enya bear very politely asked him if he was okay, if I can just follow you around and learn from you. And this is all you're doing

00:26:03--> 00:26:14

everything right. And then they get into a boat, they didn't pay money, like they just got into a boat, the guys for free, will take you where you're going. And after they do that, he goes downstairs he gets out of this eyesight, and then he violates the boats.

00:26:16--> 00:26:17

There was always I was like, What?

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

What is what's wrong with you?

00:26:22--> 00:26:52

You can almost feel the moves and not being able to keep it in making What do you mean? Like it Musa Islam has a very clear set of values and ethics that he does not compromise everybody so and he was the type of person who had a very, he was very passionate meaning if he saw something that was clearly wrong, he could not stay quiet for too long. Even though he told him Do not ask me of anything. That was the only condition just please stay quiet. Now most items did not know that what he was going to be subjected to were things you could not be quiet about. But isn't that exactly the problem we have today? You think things should be like this, and this and this. And then you when

00:26:52--> 00:27:22

you go into the reality, you end up finding out that they're doing things that you can be quiet about you go find out that the youth are smoking pot and drinking and partying. And you're like, No, you can't do this, but you know, you're happy. If you understand the theory and you want to fix it the practice, you have to have to take it easy, but take it take a deep breath, take a deep breath people, no one's perfect. Yes, they're gonna be violators in the community. Yes, the Muslim community is not an angelic community, they're all gonna do the things that they're supposed to do properly, we know that we should know that by now. And you can't ask them to do and you can't expect

00:27:22--> 00:27:51

expecting you can assume it. You're saying one of the things Musa is learning is you're going to be hit with the reality that people sometimes aren't what they seem, and sometimes they don't behave the way you expect them to behave, you have to have the ability to understand that and deal with that. That's one of the lessons we're going to learn here. There's many lessons, but that's one of them. I think it's important with us sometimes missed, you're gonna see three things, three behaviors that you're like, No, no, that's that's just not right. That's not okay. I agree. But still, it happens. And still you have to deal with it. And still you have to accept that that's the

00:27:51--> 00:28:19

reality and you still you have to find ways to, to work with the fact that that that is how it is. I can't stop coming to the mission because people just aren't nice in the masjid. Or the Muslims don't seem to respect one another. And then no, you come anyway you come especially if they're like that so that you can change that be that change that you want to see is not what we're taught, be the change you want to see in the world you will be the better Muslim you will be you see you you see you don't like how the shoes look, we'll pick them up. You don't like how the people are standing in line and help them up. Do what it is that you think should be done. But don't be the type of person

00:28:19--> 00:28:52

when you see a violation, you will you will freak out now again, we're not blaming Mussolini said I'm he was told beforehand, you're not going to be able to stick with it. But this is not our fault. My mom Sally's and I've learned a lot from this. Musa left this will leave this encounter much more flexible as a person with a much more broader understanding of the world and an open mind that allowed him at least and I'm to deal with 600,000 or beneath him who didn't agree with me about anything. Who he left them for 10 days and they decide and they went back to worshiping a

00:28:53--> 00:29:27

golden calf. I imagined I imagined this you just opened the sea for them and you just you just open the sea And told them that ilaha IL Allah and you're dealing with for 10 days and they're worshiping a golden statue again. Yeah, he will lie. Every time you think about Musa Lisa um you always come to the conclusion of Allah Musa Taryn, Salah Musa he was tired, he put in a lot of effort. You have to go through a lot these people didn't seem to understand what they were doing. And he tried in time and time again, he would explain things. But he I believe that had this not happened. It wouldn't have actually even continued Musa itself probably would have just killed everyone.

00:29:28--> 00:29:51

At some point, he just lost his temper. Musa and Sam got to go with him. Right? And he got to see and you got to understand. And he came back with a perspective of refresh and as you start to ascend was capable of dealing with some of the most difficult people on the planet and maintain their faith and can maintain their guidance. Alia salatu salam and I imagine they'll come to the Gates of Jerusalem and He will tell them just enter

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

just enter the door don't We don't want to fight and we're gonna get fight and they're too big and we're too weak. Just enter the

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

or just push the door in all right and you're going to be fine and they still didn't do it.

00:30:05--> 00:30:39

Just please can you just talk well, you're not going to fight I'm here I'm telling you I'm moving race I'm telling I'm your profit you want to and they still didn't do it. They said no. And you're studying the level of difficulty he's dealing with the closed mindedness, the the lack of commitment, the lack of faith, the lack of belief, the lack of anything. I think that made a difference for him was this Pacific story, this unique story in the Quran, that tells us this is the transition of Musa This is the junction of the two seas from Musa yesterday. He was going from the theory to practice and it's always it's always a difficult transition. He needed some you need some

00:30:39--> 00:30:43

guidance for this. He needed someone to kind of help help make things clearer for him. I didn't so it was

00:30:44--> 00:30:48

Karaca this guy he violated the ship moves on Instagram flipped Carla.

00:30:49--> 00:30:50

He told

00:30:51--> 00:31:23

me what you violated the ship. They don't worry. So you can sink the people who kind of were kind enough to allow us to get on in the first place. The owners of it. Love the texture and Imre you have done something horrible. Imran means something just Yaniv unspeakable. This is yeah, this is this is the worst I can't imagine. It was like that, why thought the I was told you're a person of knowledge. This is horrible. What you've just done is one of the worst things I've seen in a long time. And he looked at the camera and was as ROM is the type of person who just opened you'll always say speak his mind.

00:31:25--> 00:32:03

So the I've just started as the patient teacher, that he was at that point called LM alkyl. Did I not say in the calendar still? Yeah. And if indeed you would not have the ability to be patient on this journey. Did I not tell you the United States did not say that to Bala to his knee behind the scenes but Musa Instagram was also a very pious, pious student, by Allah to work with me please do not hold this against me. Please don't hold me accountable. Please don't be angry with me. Don't be continuously upset with me now to his knee B minus C with what I have forgotten. Some I forgot I forgot that we're not supposed to say anything. It slipped my mind at that one moment and I so the

00:32:03--> 00:32:37

first time it was forgetfulness, Musa exam forgot, and students will always forget. And that is like the go to excuse if you ever don't know anything is that you forgot, but at the same time, it is the truth of the matter that students forget by Allah to work with me b minus u don't hold this against me because I forgot what I told him funny mean, Emery Arrastra. And don't make this difficult for me. I mean, don't continuously remind me of it or hold me accountable with it. Or let's try and make it difficult for me and me, don't make this matter difficult for me by continuously reminding me of it and holding holding this against me, because I forgot, please don't hold this again, don't be

00:32:37--> 00:32:41

upset with me, basically saying I want it's a one time thing.

00:32:43--> 00:32:53

So he accepted down to Florida, I said alright, even though that was the condition that you would not say anything until we're done. But that's fine. So that's the first story, the first story is violating

00:32:54--> 00:33:21

the belongings of those who helped you out. Now here, we're just going to look at it from a from a very abstract or very simplistic point of view, we're going to look into it more detail. Once he starts explaining things. When not they'll slowly start explaining that's what I'll go into details with you a bit more deeply. But right now let's look at it from an abstract and kind of distance point of view. What you saw was someone who violated the possession of someone else who helped him who helped them out. Has that ever happened to you before?

00:33:22--> 00:33:27

Have you ever put your hand out to help someone and then the person that you helped out ended up?

00:33:28--> 00:33:59

harming you? Has it ever happened in the world in history of the world? Yes, this happens quite often. This happens quite often, where someone that you helped out ends up stabbing you in the back and hurt hurting you will not. Now what are you going to do? Let me tell you something very, very common that happens when people don't have the proper understanding of how you're supposed to practice Islam. One of the things that happened quite commonly is that you say, You know what, I've always been a good person, but I'm done. No, I will not be any merciful people anymore. Because every time I'm merciful with someone, they come back and they stab me in the back because I'm done.

00:33:59--> 00:34:29

From now on it's by the book, I don't care what you know, you have money don't have money. I don't care. It's not my problem anymore. I've done my I've done my part, right, you hear that a lot. That's that's very, very common thing, especially in the world of business. Where they say, I will I always work with me and I work with my conscious. I'm kind, I'm impatient. And then I do something good. And this person who I did good to for years comes and stabbed you in the back. I'm done. I am done. Yes, you are done. If you were doing it for the sake of the people at the beginning, you see if you're doing it for people and people change, then you should change as well. But if you're doing

00:34:29--> 00:34:32

it for Allah subhanho data, Allah never changes. So why would you?

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

If you're doing for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala Allah never changes. Why are you going to change? Why would you change something you're doing for the sake of Allah, unless you're not doing it for the sake of Allah, you were doing it for the sake of people saying something about you, and now they've already hurt us too much so you don't care anymore. If you're doing it for the sake of people, then you'll change based on what people do. If people are nice, you're nice. If people are bad, then you're not. If people don't treat you properly, then you stop being the merciful kind, just person, the person that you are. However, if you're dealing with Allah

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

subhanaw taala meaning if the person if the ones suffering, if the one that you are dealing with if the one that you are doing things for is him jelajah Lu, then you'll never change. Because does Allah subhanaw taala change? Does he go from being generous to being non generous or to being merciful to being non merciful? No, he will continuously be generous and merciful and loving, to Why are you changing? There's an old

00:35:22--> 00:35:51

proverb that says that those who love Allah subhanaw taala, one of them two people who are very pious came to one another, one of them with money, and one of them wealthy, the other one very poor. So the one the the wealthy person took out from his pocket to a coin, somebody, and he said to the other person, who was luck, take it, it's not for you, though. Meaning I'm not giving it to you. I'm giving it to Allah. So I told him had lambing Give it to me, but I'm not taking it from you. I'm taking it from

00:35:53--> 00:36:23

the contract being very simple. When, when you're giving charity, you're not giving food and food and food and you're giving Allah subhanaw taala. The lady your Lulu, he chose to use the wording like that in the Quran, who will lend Allah money as if Allah subhanaw taala needs money or uses money or has any interest in money, but that's how you're supposed to think about it. I'm giving Allah not giving you You're good, you're bad, you're crying, you're not crying doesn't make a difference to me. Now, of course, there's a small exception to the rule here that I've talked about, because I got this question too many times. What happens if the person is an addict who's gonna use

00:36:23--> 00:36:56

it? For sure, that's a different story. If you have it, if you know for sure that this person wants to use it for shelter, it's a different story. But that's very rare. Meaning that's yeah, for you to know that for sure that this person is going to use this money to harm himself or harm someone else. And that's a different story. But still, you should give maybe not money, but you should give that giving is not limited to, you know, cash giving can be in different forms. Sometimes it's this person who you're talking about who's an addict or is harmful? Does he need money? No, he needs someone to give him something that's not money. He needs attention. He needs support he needs help

00:36:57--> 00:37:34

give him help not in the form of money if that's not what's going to help him right. But here's the concept is most is that um, of course wants to maintain the lock of the society does not accept that idea. Right? Because the theory we don't have that in theory. In theory when you're good to go you're gonna be good to me. If you've been good to me that I mean good back to you. That's how it works. This loyalty is theory is beautiful. But in practice, that's not how it happens. You raise your kid for 35 years and then got any one day they say something that breaks your heart forever. Right? You'll probably have done something that like that you get to a parent at one point to you

00:37:34--> 00:38:01

work with someone usually you support a sibling you support a friend and then one day they do something that is unimaginable to you guys in your mind like I've been supporting you and trying to protect you and stand by you for all these years and this is what I get back. Right? So what do we do with that? Do we continue to maintain our ethical code or we do or do we give in house change our ways? So most is that I'm objected. You remind him of the condition and then he apologized and he told him I forgot.

00:38:03--> 00:38:07

So we continue into all three of the after. So follow up or

00:38:08--> 00:38:12

either left me Hulan Portela.

00:38:22--> 00:38:26

turnips and Zeki yet be high enough

00:38:30--> 00:38:31

that he

00:38:33--> 00:38:36

or she and look

00:38:42--> 00:38:42


00:38:44--> 00:38:49

in McAllen to stealthily Sabella

00:38:57--> 00:39:02

all in L Touka. Che back

00:39:03--> 00:39:05

to for ebony

00:39:15--> 00:39:19

tell me let me withdraw a

00:39:23--> 00:39:33

phone call. So they went to the reality again and they went full throttle once more to embark on a new journey. Had it I love the hula man until they came up to a young boy

00:39:35--> 00:39:52

Katella and he killed him and of course most artists that I'm sees this and again we're walking around with Musa and this dude walking around this knowledgeable apparently merciful person and then he comes up to a child and he murders this child and Musa again loses his mind.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

peloton Epsons Akia Have you killed a pure soul is a Kia means pure. Why is it pure because he's hola

00:40:00--> 00:40:38

Um, he's he's a young boy who has not reached religious accountability me he hasn't really been. You're not held accountable for anyone who hasn't done Milesi yet, so it's a clean slate for this kid. Yeah he hasn't done behind enough's with no ambulating UPS meaning he did with no other soul to make up for I mean he didn't kill someone got enough spin offs meaning if you kill someone up and mitigate a murder then it's capital punishment for this kid you're killing first of all a pure soul that didn't do anything wrong. And it didn't it's not like this kid killed another kid or killed someone else. You're just deleting like so he's using all his logic. He's using all his theory

00:40:38--> 00:40:50

mosaics and look there's two things it says a key it says next is IKEA this kid is not old enough and he didn't kill anyone there's no reason under the sun that allows you to kill this good

00:40:52--> 00:41:13

luck on the Jeep dashi a new car you have done the worst thing possible no cry means the most horrible horrible Nucor something movement comes something that you should be punished for. Like he's almost insinuating he's almost suggesting that you should be punished for this like, I know that you're you're knowledgeable and merciful and all that, but this is nohcra this is just I can't just I can't put up with this boiler.

00:41:15--> 00:41:21

Did I not tell you specifically in an academic study is that you will not be able to have patient with patients with me.

00:41:23--> 00:41:31

So it comes down again, it goes back to the neutrals that is like yes, of course. I shouldn't have said yes, yes. You just killed the kid.

00:41:32--> 00:42:07

What can i What are you talking about today? But you remember Allah Subhan Allah is one who told him here we there's a lot to learn in these stories. Because we're gonna we're gonna ask a few questions at the end is it okay if you have knowledge you can go around killing kids and that's gonna be we're gonna have some questions to ask at the end of you allowed to go harm people in volume violate people's possession and that's going to be because you have more knowledge or you know, obviously not but how are we going to get going to come to these conclusions you have to go through the story a bit properly. Bada Iluka and che in Fela to Sohini okay, if I asked you again about anything after

00:42:07--> 00:42:39

this then do not accept my companionship but that's also me then you can get rid of me by their Bunnell help me let go near Rudra you have reached your you have reached your limit with my excuses or there are many other my excuses you have reached your limit. But after you've reached your limit, I don't think you I don't think you should be stuck with me with more excuses. Yes. You told me not to ask anything. And I've done it twice in a row. But yes, yes, you violated a ship and then you've killed a kid and I don't know what you're going to do next. I'm scared even to think what you're going to do next. But yeah, Annie I don't know what to tell you. Anyway, I won't say anything again.

00:42:39--> 00:42:43

I promise I won't say anything again. So this obviously accepts Yeah, yes. Good.

00:42:45--> 00:43:17

So let me make it a bit more personal. The first time is like I made a rule remember the rule so he's like yes, I forgot to forgot the rule. And then the second time was like I didn't they tell you did not tell you specifically that's usually when you're teaching you say i Okay guys I said no talking right. And then the next time this kid talks like Hey, Did I not tell you is that gonna go to stop talking so that's what makes it a bit more personal so second time is personalizing it a bit like I told you you're not gonna be able to do this right to prove me wrong like he's as if he's telling him prove it wrong and show me that you can be patient with this but he can't obviously

00:43:17--> 00:43:22

can't shoot he should he have been okay with doing that no sorry sir. What are your thoughts should have mostly been okay with

00:43:24--> 00:43:59

should have not said anything. First he should have of course normal he was told by his teacher you're not gonna be able to do this it's fine you don't compress the knowledge it's gonna be you're not able to do this is no problem. So it was normal and was a reaction to this is totally in its natural installments. This is the right way to do it. You have to react to things actually teaches us something important about seeking knowledge. No way and nowhere in seeking knowledge are you required to turn off your brain and just run along with whatever your teacher tells you? That makes no sense at all? Even if that teacher is someone Allah subhanaw taala himself gave you and told you

00:43:59--> 00:44:03

this is the person to go learn from isn't this this do what happened here? He was told by Allah go learn from him

00:44:04--> 00:44:29

go learn from him I'm telling you I want you Allah subhanaw taala is telling Musa go learn from him and yet Musa Instagram does not stop once it does not let something go he objects every time of course he has to you have to as a secret of knowledge in this world you object to everything that makes no sense to you no matter who says it and you should do it and you can still do it even though you hate when your kids do it specifically when you give them a non

00:44:31--> 00:44:35

unraveling rational ruling right when you tell them okay no this in the house

00:44:36--> 00:44:43

why? Why don't eating after eight o'clock in the house? I'm hungry because no eating in the house after eight o'clock.

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


00:44:46--> 00:44:49

Why what's wrong? Because I said so Allah,

00:44:50--> 00:44:54

masha Allah, I didn't know your ultimate authority in the world, the only I thought.

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

But isn't that the reality of how we deal with things? You're at work?

00:45:00--> 00:45:15

actually teaching our kids something that is very negative. Teach your kids to question everything. Teach them to question everything and be proud of them. If they question everything, be proud of the question you be proud of them and answer them and tell them why. And explain to them you can't convince them that maybe your rule is stupid needs to change.

00:45:16--> 00:45:45

Maybe if your rule you can convince a kid about your role, maybe you're willing to change and take the time, while the kids will listen, the best thing about kids is that if you can convince them of something, they'll commit to it more than you. If you can convince a kid of something, to commit to it more than yourself. And that's the awesome thing about kids. And if they don't commit to it, they'll feel bad about it by themselves. They won't even wait for you to say anything, because they know they could have done it. And they'll ask for your help. But if they don't see the light, and what you're talking about, of course, they're not going to like it. If they feel it's just a matter

00:45:45--> 00:46:23

of forcing them to do something. They don't want it and none of us like that. None of us except that none of us do. And moves on Islam is no exception. Even though Musa is a prophet, sent by Allah Himself to learn from someone and he objected all three times. Every time what you violate No, you killed No, no, no, I know that third time is going to be something good. In the third time is different, like the first time was a violation of the possessions of someone who was good to you. And that hurts. The second one is of course, it's it's the worst type of evil that exists in the world. Which is, which is the harm that that comes to a child, you can understand that I can

00:46:23--> 00:46:48

understand that no one can. Can you understand harm coming to children? No, we can. It's hard. When you see it. It's the only thing that makes you go into it keeps me up at night. Knowing that kills me is when you see a child suffering, why it's hard to understand the suffering of children. It's hard. Because the children because they didn't do anything yet they're not ready. That's something that told them I can understand Zakia be right enough to kill the nurse that is that is not even religiously accountable. And there was no murder before it. They didn't You didn't kill anyone. What are you doing?

00:46:50--> 00:47:25

Oh, I asked the same question every day. But don't you think you watch the TV? And the same question that was asked come to your mind. And you look at it and you look at the project Katell Phillipson, zekiel, enough's, che and nohcra. Unless your other than what have you do? Unless you're the hunted himself? And what did you do? How did you How could you do this? How could this happen? The force is the first type of evil that could be imagined. When a child is violated and killed or loses life. The pain that enters the hearts of the parents, and the people around them is unimaginable. No, no, no, no parent should walk in the funeral in his own child, right? Like it's something that we the

00:47:25--> 00:47:55

nature of life, the filter just doesn't doesn't see to be normal for a child for a parent to walk in the funeral of his own child. But it's a part of what happens all the time. And it's a part of life. It's a part of life. The theory doesn't support it. But the practice does. The theory is not there. The theory doesn't say that this should happen. But practically it does. It does happen. How are we supposed to deal with this? How are we supposed to understand it and this is what the whole point of this story have sort of gone from here is we're going to learn how to understand these things and see them how they're in my understanding, and I think you're starting to feel this, you're not

00:47:55--> 00:48:16

really a human being. Just like you and me. He's not just he's not a regular person. He's not a person. Now he's a he's one of Allah subhanaw taala his creation is ivend A servant of Allah subhanho data that does the work of Allah subhanho wa Taala but he's not a person that is yomo Kiama going to have a book and he's going to be held accountable for stuff No, he's not that he's not that. He's not that.

00:48:18--> 00:48:24

No, no, no, all the myths all these are myths that we made up around this new mystic figure.

00:48:25--> 00:48:56

Oh, there's there's there's even more like there's more beliefs rigor surrounding Kadota that he's, he comes every night to a certain place every year it was and then you can meet him and Dinah he's still in Utah because none of that there's none of that exists. And none of that is proper will allow them if you understand the story properly and you'll see at the end of the story will make sense to you. He's not actually a religiously accountable human being. He's not a person. He's June demon God Allah subhanaw taala is one of Allah subhanaw taala his creations that like one of them and that you can just like there's an acre, there's someone like this, there's something like this,

00:48:56--> 00:49:16

that Allah subhanaw taala wanted Musa to learn from, to learn from him the perspective of life, of how the theory when it comes to practice is it's never smooth, it's never perfect. There's always a lot of bumps and ups and downs, always a lot of mistakes. And there's always a lot of suffering and pain, there's going to be pain, you know, I need this story. The second story is the first one is the violation of ethics.

00:49:17--> 00:49:18

The second one is pain.

00:49:19--> 00:49:33

And the first one is just just pure agony and suffering that it's hard for us to even comprehend and understand. So that's the second one. Let's see the third one and shall we have time to kind of bring the whole thing together at the end fell on alcohol

00:49:34--> 00:49:35


00:49:43--> 00:49:56

so we have three Madonia we have three Mad Hatter for account either for account idea also for accounts, right so I stopped it at the end so that we wouldn't have you know, 12 counts in a row and you would lose your breads. But in generally when you read it you have a 12 count you

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

had to do it again and try to get

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

have often had

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


00:50:06--> 00:50:08

teeny step on

00:50:20--> 00:50:28

so for foreign we'll do it right. A couple of words are 444 16 counts of Justin this small a couple of words that you read

00:50:30--> 00:50:32

a your by your former

00:50:37--> 00:50:43

fellow judge fi, G li do a yellow

00:50:55--> 00:50:57

sheet she let her

00:51:06--> 00:51:06

phone call

00:51:15--> 00:51:20

so the final the fun part, of course. So they embarked on the journey again and they went forward again.

00:51:21--> 00:51:22

This time they had

00:51:24--> 00:51:32

Laconia until they came up to the people of a certain village, village or a town or city or whatever, meaning a populated area.

00:51:34--> 00:51:38

It's top on. And by then they were hungry. Samosa instead of

00:51:40--> 00:52:18

the customary way back then there was a customary law that was understood by all that if you come as a diversity, meaning you visit a place, a country, town, a village and you're hungry, and you asked to be supported by food that people will feed you. That is your right. And that was the Arab structure that even before Islam, so if you came, and you were asking for food, and no one knew you that they would feed you for three days, the first night, they would feed you extra extravagantly in the next two nights, they would feed you normally, before they even asked you what they want, what you wanted, or why you were here, who you were looking for. So they came to a village and they asked

00:52:18--> 00:52:42

for food, as they as normal is not something weird, like they didn't do something that they didn't do, you wouldn't do normally, just, it's normal, that we're gonna get food here, obviously, because we're hungry. And it's we're in a different place that people don't know us, they still ask people for food, for elbow, and up for Homer. And the people of this town, almost all of them said no, and they refuse to feed them and they close their doors. So we came to a very

00:52:43--> 00:52:44

cheap if I may.

00:52:46--> 00:53:12

Town, the people socially were challenged, they didn't have a strong society and community they were not didn't have the proper values and ethics. Apparently, this was a group the population that had deteriorated their values and ethics and practices have deteriorated in the last number of generations to the point where they won't offer those who are hungry, just something to eat. And that is of course the the worst you can arrive to at the time for about one up for a winner. Well, that was very upsetting to most acnm and upsetting to him

00:53:14--> 00:53:18

for what he that he had you doubt on and then they found a wall, you read

00:53:20--> 00:53:30

the Wall wants to fall down Oh, no wall wants to do anything. This is just a figure of speech in the Arabic language. So the wall didn't want to fall down. But it was the thing is a wall is almost falling down like this. It's broken, not really.

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


00:53:44--> 00:54:09

So they came to these people, and they asked them to be fed, as normally as any, any passing by a pi anybody pastor would, or passing bass buyer would come and ask for food. It wasn't something that needed the special treatment. It wasn't something that happened very naturally, normally, and it almost became second nature to everyone who was traveling in the land. And they asked for food as they normally would. And the people said no, to their unique surprise.

00:54:10--> 00:54:26

They actually said no. And they asked a couple a number of places and everyone said no. And it seems to me that this society in this group of people, this population had deteriorated ethically and morally to the point where they didn't do the basics that were required of them in treating others.

00:54:27--> 00:54:44

So they found a wall, a wall that was falling down there was not much of it was left and it was almost completely on the ground. And you read the annual top bar and the Quran used us in that form saying the wall that wants to fall down. It's always just a figure of speech doesn't want to fall down, but it's going to fall apart. So this other father

00:54:45--> 00:54:49

put up the sleeves and started working and put up the wall again. Right.

00:54:51--> 00:54:59

And of course moose as he's standing. What are you doing like these? This is the worst group of people I've ever encountered in my life. Like they're not worth the air. They're breathing. Why are you doing them?

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

either and favor here. Why do you even know who this is for? You know, this wall is for why are you fixing a wall for them? Right? Bala? No *ter? If you wanted that does Danny here Joe, you could have done this at least for your mythos data here, you could have taken for doing this or you're not some reward like the money. Now we're going to be in like we're both starving, like at least ask for money if you're gonna do this like the right. Again, mussalam is in our Why would you show this level of this is a level of service to people who lack the basic morals and ethics in the world. Right. And that's the third. That's the third thing that most addicts I'm going to put up with the

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

first thing was violating someone who was was kind to you. Second it was it was pure evil, like the symbol of just pure evil, killing a child. And then a third one is, why would you do a service towards people who refuse to do the basic minimum of what is morally and ethically required at a time?

00:55:57--> 00:56:28

By law *ter, that whole family could have at least asked for food. I'm not saying not to do it. So most I didn't say why do you do this? The first two times. He said, Why did you do it? The second first time when he when he was told you made a mistake? You said I forgot? The second time he said he didn't say forgot because he didn't forget the second time. The second time after the murder. He didn't forget at all. He said it even though he knew he shouldn't say something. But he said, Alright, fine. If I make a mistake again, don't let me go. Leave me. You don't have to have my companionship. But you didn't forget. The third time it was just a matter. He didn't say why? Why

00:56:28--> 00:56:56

did you do it? It's like why? Why is there no logic? And anything that you do? Why is it that nothing you do make sense at all, like these people don't deserve to be serviced if you're going to service them, at least benefits so we can eat because they didn't know they just did. They just broke the law of the land which they have to feed us they have to give us something to drink or something to eat. So MOOCs is just a level of frustration. If I felt frustrated with what he's saying, even though he was told that, you know, this person is full of knowledge.

00:56:57--> 00:57:28

When this man, you see, we know this story. That's why to you this is like yeah, whatever, like I know what's coming next, you know, but if you didn't know the story, and this was explained to you, the way I'm trying to explain to you, you would find that the answers of this man, open up your mind to possibilities and to options that exist in this world, that will make you deal with things differently. It's all about perspective, it's all about what can happen. And all it was all about the fact that there's hype that you don't understand all the time, and everything, but everything that happens around you is going to make perfect sense. All that needs to make perfect sense are the

00:57:28--> 00:57:35

values you believe in and the actions that you're going to do. But what happens around you many of it is not going to make perfect sense. It doesn't have to, and it never will.

00:57:36--> 00:58:10

It doesn't have to, and it never will. And if you need it to, then you're going to be very, very sad at the end, and you're gonna lose a lot and you're gonna it's not gonna be able to continue. If you require it requires everything to make sense around you that's happening in this world. If you're gonna try to make sense of everything that goes on, you're gonna you're gonna be so you're gonna lose Wallahi lose badly at the end of this because it just doesn't it just doesn't. The ethics you believe in the values, the morals, the principles, the foundational concepts that you take, they make sense to you, and then your practice does. But what goes around? What happens? How are you

00:58:10--> 00:58:12

supposed to understand the death of a child?

00:58:13--> 00:58:20

As if it never happened to you before? Then Sharla? never will? Hamdulillah? Amy Allah Insha Allah, protect all your children see, I mean,

00:58:21--> 00:58:55

biggest we'll see. But that can happen. But how do you understand? How do you deal with it? How do you make it? How do you come to terms with that? And how do you rationalize it and understand the logic behind it? It's very hard. So you know, why him? Why did he do if I'm, if I'm so bad, if this is punishment for me, take me. But in love. Isn't that what it's what a father and a mother says is what they say? And it's exactly what comes to their mind. Take me, take me in any way you want. Just leave him Let him know. I know kids are listening you that that's how your dad feels. That's how your dad literally feels about you. He literally feels like that he won't tell you that you'll never

00:58:55--> 00:59:16

will because he's a Middle Eastern, Middle East. And God will never say that. But that's how he feels deep inside. He'd rather you'd rather you live than him. But how do you make you know, how do you make sense of how do you make sense of Pete good people, good people who do good things and bad things come their way? Right? The people of the ship, good people, and then their ship ship sinks.

00:59:17--> 00:59:18

How do you make sense of this?

00:59:21--> 00:59:24

Child, suddenly the entire world wakes up? Exactly.

00:59:27--> 00:59:59

How you make sense of people who are as garbagey as these people and the story, the people who refuse to feed someone who's starving on the way how do you explain good things happening to them? How do you explain something that is falling? being built for them? Isn't this isn't this what happened? How do you explain this stuff? How do you stand how do you see it? And how do you see the volume become stronger? How do you see people being innocently murdered? How do you see them assume the good person the kindhearted falling more and more and feeling more and more and being in difficult situation. How would you understand it? Is he that is the knowledge

01:00:00--> 01:00:23

into practice, that is a practical knowledge that is lacked at that point you had all the theory, but you didn't have this. And if you have this, the understanding of things will be very very different and you have an ability to do interlock you have the ability to do to take full throttle into life because you understand that oh, it's not always the way I want it's not always how I think it's going to be so this one he said, God Oh * if you wanted you would have just

01:00:24--> 01:00:27

taken some money we could have eaten any.

01:00:28--> 01:00:39

You Mister Mister knowledge and mercy, man. Yeah. And who seems to do to do nothing that I understand in this world. Can you please tell me why you didn't ask me some money so we could eat? So of course he answers him. Do you have time to read but when we're

01:00:41--> 01:00:44

all for your Kobe, any rabbinic?

01:00:49--> 01:00:55

Beaten Kavita, we'd email I'm still playing early he saw Bill.

01:01:01--> 01:01:29

So he tells him okay, this is the final encounter of you. And I feel we're going to part ways is the part where this is where we part ways. And Austin is a very part ways. Why? Because the times is strike, if you're playing baseball is the idea you're stroking, you're out, tell us three times three strikes, and you're out. I was like you made your first time you forgot second time, you didn't forget what you asked for one more chance, and here's your one more chance and you still can like I did something good. You couldn't just be quiet about the good thing, so hard to ask me

01:01:30--> 01:02:12

for meaning we're done something a bit weaker. I am going to explain to you when we will. And this is an important word. With whatever time you have left, I think I would take a moment to explain that we comes from the concept of our law, which is which is going back on your traces, to revisit something so that we and as a part of it's a way that we deal with the Quran, one of the ways of deceit is doing between, which is really understanding things, meaning looking at things from a different perspective. And it's usually used for looking at things figuratively. And it usually means that we usually means that what is apparent to you is not the actual story. That was what is

01:02:12--> 01:02:43

staring you in the face is not the full story. There's something else that you're missing, there's a there's a there's a hidden part of this as another dimension of it that you don't seem to see. And that's what we means. And that's what that really is used for within the Quran. That's why when we talk about the Jonnie certain attributes of Allah subhanho wa taala, when we talk of Allah subhanaw taala his hand, and yet, when we're talking about what we're talking about, will condemn or suck. And we're talking about something that is specific to Allah subhanaw taala that the literal meaning does not apply, he cannot apply, you cannot say that he has a face. And then imagine a face that is

01:02:43--> 01:03:08

similar to any face that you've ever seen. Or just say that he has a hand and imagine five digits, you can't do that. If you do that you're actually committing a form of sugar corn if you cannot do that at all, because anything that you imagine Allah subhanaw taala is nothing even similar. So how do you understand yet some people say, Okay, we just, it is what it is, we don't think about it, we don't talk about it. That's what it is. And then other people, well, that doesn't work anymore, because you're gonna end up a million questions from people from different faiths when they say, Well, what does it mean and you know what it means. So you have to explain, you have to do something

01:03:08--> 01:03:45

called atween, which is basically giving it a figurative meaning that allows you to be able to talk about it, and that is in both things of Muslim and I've done for for many years. So when I'm Buca between, I'm going to explain to the figurative understanding marlim dystopia Allah He is what it is that you didn't have the patience to deal with? Meaning Yes, you saw a violation of the property of good people. Yes. You saw the murder of a child a merciless murder of a child? Yes. You saw me doing a favor to people who did not deserve it whatsoever. That is what it looks like, literally, staring you in the face. This makes no sense. Good people are being harmed because of you. A child was

01:03:45--> 01:04:19

murdered because of you. Bad people were rewarded because of you. That is the that's how it looks on the outside. Isn't that the literal that's the literal, but that's not the actual meaning between the figurative understanding is very different. Let me explain to sound a bit. I'm going to give you the information now. The second junction, the junction of the two seat two oceans. So here's the second notion. Yeah, Musa, let me explain to you the second parts, let me give you the wheel so we can understand how things are going to look certain things need depth, and they need profoundness. And they need your ability to look and read between the lines and see beyond what actually happened.

01:04:20--> 01:04:54

And again, before we go through the if any, and this man and love the fall explains to most addicts, and I'm very clearly what the idea is, and we will see a lot of light, what's going to be explained. You ask yourself, every time you see, you see an injustice in the world. And you see those or injustice become more powerful. And you see more innocent people lose their lives, and you see good people losing what they have. When you see something happening to you that makes no sense to you. When something happens to you and you put so much effort in trying to achieve something and you were very pious about it. We were very sincere about it and you put your effort into something very bad

01:04:54--> 01:05:00

came to you as you were doing all of it, and you didn't get what you wanted. How do you understand it? How do you make sense

01:05:00--> 01:05:32

Have it what is it? What are you how are you supposed to deal with it? Because it doesn't the way it looks. The way it looks, you know can be can be very confusing. It could fool you if you misunderstand what what's happening you could be fooled easily and then you have no idea how to deal with this information. However, if you have the proper knowledge, which is what this story is teaching us, the theory is one thing and in the practice of life is different. Being able to deal with life is a different thing. Having that information will make a difference for you. So will I think we have time for one more. Okay, one more I inshallah be frugal. So he begins to explain to

01:05:32--> 01:05:40

most at least that I'm what actually happened. Miss Athena to figure and that's Lee Messer keen Yeah, man moon I feel bad

01:05:48--> 01:05:48


01:05:53--> 01:06:01

work an hour Oh, who's madikwe? Who do calesa fina teen nos

01:06:11--> 01:06:49

masa VM as far as the ship goes, Well, what was on the ship was owned by Mr. King by a bunch of very, very poor people who didn't have anything else but the ship that they that they worked on. That's all they own from this world. Did Musa Ali salaam know that? No. Do you know that they were my sacking? No, he did not know. Do you know that? The oh nothing else? No, I had no idea about that. Yeah, I'm Illumina. The only thing that they made money off was working in to see mosaics and I did not know that either. For Allah to Eva, what I wanted to do was to put a flaw in it. Well, kinda. And the reason I wanted to do that was that there was behind them or is waiting for them or

01:06:49--> 01:07:09

someone after them what all home was after them. Someone's going after them. melipona King? Yeah, who could lesufi Not in rosborough? There was a king what would take every flawless ship in question, and it would force people to take this ships against against their I guess they will? Did Musa Hmm, no, that? No, now that he knows that? Does it make sense?

01:07:11--> 01:07:42

Does the action of this man after he has that knowledge? Does it make sense? Now? It makes sense. Now he's like, Oh, so you flooded? You violated it. So that meant at the time that it arrived at his destination? It was there was water, and then they'd have to fix it, the king would come and take a look at he would find those Oh, there's a big hole in the middle of it. There's not a good ship, and he would leave it alone. And these people would able to hold on to their ship and they wouldn't lose their ship. Now things make perfect sense. Now, are you required to know this every time something happens? So every time that someone good, something bad's happened happens to them? Is that exactly

01:07:42--> 01:08:12

what's going to be the picture is it going to be exactly like this? No, but there's going to be a story that you don't know there's going to be a background to this that you don't have the information if you don't know the people you don't know their history. You don't know what they have. You don't want to know what's waiting for them. You don't know anything. You just saw the harm that happened to them. You don't know the plan that Allah subhanaw taala has for them you don't know it. It says you don't know it since you don't know it. Since you don't know it, you act the way Musa act. You act the way Musa acted menial objects to the shots that you see happening. However, you

01:08:12--> 01:08:39

will accept that this is the culture of Allah subhanaw taala and that there's wisdom in it somewhere down the road, even though you can see it descending the idea here that even if you cannot see the wisdom, and you will know that the wisdom is there, it's there. Now does that mean people are allowed to walk around and violate other people's positions? Obviously not. That's why I've decided here is not actually a person. You're not someone who's being is going to be held accountable. You're mocking him he just one of Allah subhanaw Does creation looks like the maniacal does his jobs judge.

01:08:41--> 01:09:10

The concept being that what is apparent to you sometimes will fool you. Yes, you have to deal with it. Normally, if you catch someone violating someone else's position, he has to go to jail. He has to pay for what he violated. But when you see someone being harmed when they're good people, you know that there's more to it than what you just saw. And if you're a good person and you're harmed, you know that there's more to this than what just happened right now that there's something beyond what just went went on shell will will take more time than I thought and Next. Next. I most likely will be here
