before we begin
I don't have a chairperson today you will normally do this when you would ask everyone to come closer and to sit closer to me.
So insha Allah tala, if you can come as close as possible, that would be much appreciated. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once speaking to his companions, he was speaking to them, and three men entered into the masjid. One of those men he found a space towards the front of where the prophets of Allah wa alayhi wa sallam was lecturing. And he came in, he sat there, and another man found a space at the back of the gathering, and he sat there. And the third man, he went right to the end of the masjid, where there was no one. And he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after he finished his third shell and informed me of these three men. As for the one who came
and he sat at the front, he turned towards Allah so Allah turned towards him. And as for the one who said towards the end of the gathering, he was shy of Allah. So Allah was shy of him. And as for the one who sat right at the back, where there was no one, he turned away from Allah, so a lot turned away from him. The scholars from this heavy they derive the very important etiquette of seeking knowledge. And that is that you should come as close as possible to the speaker, as close as possible. That is from the etiquettes of the student of knowledge. It shows your determination and your zeal and your enthusiasm. And Allah subhanho wa Taala. As mentioned, in his Hadith of the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he responds, like for like he responds in the in the way that you respond to him. subhanho wa Taala
is about the supplications of one of the great prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The Prophet Musa his Salatu was salam, O Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the Quran, he mentioned the story of this great illustrious Prophet, the Prophet Musa alayhis salatu salam, he mentions his story more than any other story in the Quran. There is not a single prophet of Allah from all of the prophets that Allah sent and all of his messengers that is mentioned more times in the Quran than the Prophet Mousavi, his salatu salam. There is a single verse in the Quran that I think best summarizes the life the mission, the work of Mousavi, salatu salam, a short verse in the Quran, in Surah, Baja, wherein
Allah subhanho wa Taala says concerning the Prophet Musa alayhis salam was totally in FCW I have chosen you or Musa for myself, I have made you produced you, chosen you, made you superior on a Jew. For myself. That is a summary of the life of Mousavi, his Salatu was Salam. Even before he was born, Allah subhanho wa Taala put certain things into play. The society that he was born in the socio economic politics of the place that he was residing in Pharaoh and all of the dynamics of always going on Allah subhanho wa Taala prepared this for the coming on the birth of Musa alayhis salam. And the story of Messiah is unique in the Quran in the sense that more or less from the beginning of
his birth until the end of his life, we have a narrative more or less a complete narrative of the life of this prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. And this is rarely done for any other prophet of Allah. This importance that is given to the Prophet Mousavi, his salatu salam is because of the many lessons and benefits that we can derive from his life. lessons that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam took during his time that the companions derived for their situation, and it is true for every time and place the Prophet Musa alayhis salaam and his people but he is ill the nation that Allah sent him to. There are many lessons that we take from the story and from those incidents and
events that Allah mentions in the Quran. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
He first received revelation. He first received revelation he crops muroc bicolor the hell up. Y'all know the story he went back to his wife Khadija, our mother will be a long one her and she comforted him and she consoled him. And then she told him that she would take him to her cousin, one of our even nofal, a man who was a learned scholar of the scriptures of the Christians and the Jews, knew the Torah knew the Injeel was familiar with the gospel was familiar with the teachings of, of the of Al Kitab. The People of the Scripture when he went to war apart along with his wife, Khadija, the Allahu Allah, and he related to him, the incident that took place in the cave with jabril, Allah has
sought to a Salaam wa Raka responded and he said that indeed this angel that came to you was the same angel that Allah revealed to who
to the Prophet Musa alayhis salam,
and realize he chooses the name of the Prophet Musa. This is the first exposure that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has for any of the prophets of Allah. This is day one of ye of Revelation, just received Revelation, this mirror up because
the first exposure that he has to a profit from the prophets of Allah is the Prophet Musa alayhis salam. Now what about being a scholar of the Scriptures, he could have chosen the Prophet Abraham, Ibrahim and his son, the father of all of the prophets mentioned also in the Torah and in Jean, he could have chosen the Prophet nor Noah, and he said, the first messenger of Allah to the people of the earth, also mentioned in the Torah, and in Jean, he could have mentioned the Prophet Isa and his Salatu was Salam Jesus, chronologically closer to the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned in the Torah and the engine, but he chooses who to mention who to liken the
situation to the Prophet Musa alayhis. Salatu was salam, from that moment, which is more or less the beginning of prophethood until the end of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through the Quran, through the ahaadeeth. The name of the Prophet Musa is repeated over and over again. Examples parables stories, lessons wisdoms taken from the life of this prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam,
the prophets Allah Allahu Allah, he was Silliman he went on his night journey, and you send it to the heavens and he spoke to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah obligated upon him 50 prayers for this oma 50 prayers every day and every night, which prophet from the prophets of Allah? Did he stop at the had the conversation with him, and because of the discourse, he went back to Allah to see concession, which prophet prophet Mousavi salatu salam, even though the Prophet Musa was on which level, which of the seven heavens was he on?
Six, the sixth Heaven, or the fifth heaven, and he was the one above that who was up on the heaven above him. Ibrahim, meaning he passes by Ibrahim Alayhi. Salatu was Salam. And it is Moosa that stops him
on that same journey. He met Teresa, and he met Yeah. And he met how Ron and he met Adam and he met many of the prophets of Allah. But it is Mousavi Salaam that stops him and has this conversation. Go back seek a concession from your Lord, go back to your people won't be able to play this many prayers every day and every night. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I saw my dream that I was on the plane of Yama, Yama. And a prophet will come on that day and he will only have three followers. When a prophet will come on that day and he will only have two followers on a prophet of Allah will come on your multi Yama and he will only have a single follower and a prophet
of Allah will come on that day, and he will have no follow up. No one will have believed in his message. No one will ever accept it though he'd had his hands showing the guidance is in whose hands alone Allah
and then the Prophet sets on Allah alayhi wa sallam, I looked up on the horizon, and I saw a great mass of people, a great group of people converge together. So I said to gibreel alayhis salam Is this my oma? Is this my nation.
And jabril said to me, no, rather This is the nation of who
Musashi is salatu salam. And another Hadith The Prophet said some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, when a law of syllogism will decree that the trumpet is blown, everything in the heavens and the earth will fall unconscious, for sorry for manifester, Marathi woman fill all the elimin sha Allah everything will fall unconscious.
Then the trumpets will be blown again. And who will be the first one to awaken from the slumber. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and on the Prophet said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as I awake. The first thing that I will see is who cling on to the throne of Allah. Musashi. Salatu was Salam.
Over and over again, these are just glimpses that I'm giving to you from the Quran from the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim, always the name of Musa alayhis salaam, Musa Musa Musa, always the Prophet Musa alayhis salatu salam. The scholars say the reason for this is because of the many lessons that we need to learn from his life. The many challenges that he faced along with his oma with his people with his comb with his nation, the many similarities between us, the oma of the prophet of Solomon, the challenges that we will go through and the challenges that Mousavi Salah went through with burning Islam, many similarities. And so for this reason, I have chosen four or five hours from the
story of Musa alayhis salaam that are interspersed throughout or are mentioned throughout the origin. And these two hours also, in a way, give us a summary of the life of Mousavi salatu salam, and we will extrapolate from them some benefits in sha Allah and some lessons as it relates to us today and our situation. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in Surah, cos he mentioned subhanho wa Taala, the story of Musa and how he was born, and how he came to live and grow up and become a man and mature in the palace of Pharaoh, the enemy of Allah Pharaoh, that same enemy, who before the birth of Musa had seen a dream, that is destruction will be at the hands of a man from Bani Israel.
And because of this, he decreed that every single male child shall be killed, every single male child should be slaughtered. And then when his advisors came to him, and they said that this policy doesn't make sense, because after a few years, there will be no stage left, the stages that we have will become old and they will die. And because you've killed all of the male children, there will be no slaves coming older, becoming older and coming through the ranks. Does that make sense? So he said one year we kill them. On one year we let them live in the year that there was no killing. The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam was born. And in the year that there was decreed to be killing the
Prophet Musa alayhis salam was born. Allah subhanho wa Taala even before he was born, he was preparing him was taken in FCW. I have chosen you for myself. And so the Prophet Musa alayhis, Salam and middle of the story. He comes to the household of Pharaoh, placed in the river by his mother comes to the household of Pharaoh grows up in the household of Pharaoh.
As he grows up anymore chosen to a man or Taco Bell Medina Allah, He knew how flirting mineralia one day he entered into the streets of the city at a time and people were resting. Some of the scholars said it was during the night. Other scholars of Tafseer they said it was after the war, when people normally take the siesta the rest during the day. The point is there was a time when most people are indoors and they're asleep for whatever their fee how Roger Laney acted Ilan, and he saw two men in the streets fighting one another. However, I mean, she it he had I mean, I do me. One of those men was from Bani Israel, the people of Musa alayhis salam, and the other man was a Coptic Egyptian,
from the people of Pharaoh
festa Hertha, who levy minchie it here are then living in Urdu. So the one who was from Benny Israel, when he saw Moosa, he sought his help and his aid to overcome and overpower the one who was fighting him, asked him to intercede for workers who Moosa urbani So Moses struck the Coptic Egyptian man. Some of the scholars with FCO said that he just gave him one punch. Other said that he was holding a stick, and he struck him with a stick fucka barley with a single blow was enough to kill that man. He died as a result was an intentional didn't mean to harm him to that extent, but because of the power the strength of logically that that man would die. Paula has I mean Imani Shea
Pon. He said, this is from the handiwork of chez Pon in who I do when modelu mubin For verily he is an enemy that is clear, and that is ever misleading.
And then he turned around and he said rabine vollum to nipsey Oh my Lord, I have a post myself for federal Li for offer Allah so forgive me an ALLAH forgive him in the who who will have food all right.
For indeed ALLAH is forgiving, Most Merciful, Allah Rob BB Ma and until early. And then he said, oh my lord, because of the favours, the bounties, the blessings that you have bestowed upon me for an akuna hiralal muslimeen. I will never be someone who gives assistance to the criminals and the oppressors. This is probably the first and earliest thread that is mentioned, from the lips of the Prophet Musa alayhis salam wa salam is before he becomes a prophet and messenger of Allah. It is even before he gets married and goes to madeon. This is towards the beginning of his life. He has he makes an error of judgment, commits a mistake. And there are repercussions and ramifications to that
mistake. Just as our father Adam Alec is Salatu was Salam made a mistake, when Allah ordered him not to eat from the tree he ate from the tree. And because of that, there were ramifications. repercussions from those ramifications was that Allah subhanaw taala made Adam and his wife descend to this earth from Jana. In say hell Buhari in the hadith of Abu Dhabi along with our Prophet told us on Allahu alayhi wa sallam that our them met Musa alayhis salaam. They met one another. And Musa said to him, Are you the one who because you disobeyed your Lord and you ate from the tree, you caused all of us to descend from Jenna. ramifications, repercussions? It's not just Adam and his
wife, but his children and their children and their children. Until us today. Is it because of you that all of us now have to live on the dunya?
So the Prophet Maliki salatu salam, he said, Are you not the one that Allah favored? A you're not the one that Allah subhanaw taala gave him the knowledge of the Torah, or you're not the one that Allah azza wa jal spoke to him directly. You're the claim of Allah.
And do you not know in all of this revelation, all of this knowledge that Allah bestowed upon you that this was something which Allah had written upon me decreed for me, Well, before I was created,
Musa alayhis salam responded, he said, Yes, I know this. So the Prophet said, some Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So Adam overpowered Moosa in his argument.
Adam, overpowered Moosa in his argument, the Prophet Musa alayhis, Salam also committed a mistake, and on Yom Okayama, when the people will come to the prophets of Allah to seek intercession, when they come to the Prophet Musa and they seem to see it on our behalf in front of Allah, He will say, no FC in FC, I only care about my own self on this day. And the reason that he will mention is because I took a life that I was not ordered to take, he will remember that mistake that he made. And so making a mistake, is something which is part of human nature. being Muslim, being someone who strives to be and the sooner we will make mistakes, mistakes in the rights of Allah subhanho wa
Taala mistakes in the rights of our parents, our spouses, our children, mistaken the rights of those people around us. It is part of human nature to make mistakes. It the lesson that we learn from Musa alayhis salam and for more of the prophets of Allah, is that when they would make those errors in judgment,
they would seek forgiveness from Allah, they would return to Allah, they would repent to Allah, and that is where a man comes in. That is the fruits of the heat. Now when you make a judgment error, you make a mistake, you sin, you disobey Allah, you turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala
in every single child of Adam, commits, mistakes, sins, but the best of those who sin are those who repent to Allah, the prophet, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that if you were a people that never sinned, that Allah will destroy you. And he would bring another group of people who did sin. And then after that sin, they would return to Allah and repent, because Allah wants us to worship Him. And one of the greatest acts of worship that you can perform is Toba, to repent to Allah subhanaw taala to acknowledge your weakness, to acknowledge your poverty, acknowledge your need of the mercy of Allah subhana wa Taala. And so you return to Him from the lessons that we take from this is the
Maasai Salaam after he makes this mistake. He makes a covenant as a serious conviction. felon, a corner over here on the mainstreaming of Allah never again, will I help the persons I made the mistake. I sought forgiveness but I have learned from that mistake.
Allah subhanaw taala is preparing the Prophet Musa even before years before he is even given revelation years before he will
even stand on a mountain of a tour Allah is preparing him, preparing him for that message, preparing him for that mission, preparing him to face Pharaoh and his journey and his oppression. I will never be from amongst those people who help the oppressed. He learns and he takes from this mistake from the lessons that we take from this era of Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam is that Allah subhana wa Taala sometimes through the mistakes that we make, he prepares us for goodness. You make a mistake today you learn from that mistake, when it brings you closer to Allah. How many people sin and they used to sin and disobey Allah, but something happened and that sin turn them to obedience to Allah
subhana wa Tada. They heard a verse of the Quran, they sat in a single lecture, they came and prayed one Salah in the masjid, and it was a turning point in their life. How many people that just negligent neglect for living a life of heedlessness, but they're involved in a car accident or they're overcome by some illness of some disease, and then Allah kills them. But that changed them that that moment in their life is is life changing, changes everything around places everything into perspective. And so sometimes when we sin, we make mistakes. calamities befall us. Allah tests us with hardship and difficulties. It is so that we will come out the other side, a stronger Muslim,
having stronger Eman, having a closer connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from amongst his companions was the companion was sama igloo Zayed rhodiola one, and he is the son of Zee dibner haritha. Well, one time was the adopted son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he adopted him. And then Allah told him that this type of adoption isn't allowed in Islam.
zadara haritha had a son by the name of Osama Osama bin Zayed or the Allahumma was a young man. In his teenage years. He fought in the Battle. And as he was fighting in a battle, there was a man on a Muslim was fighting in the opposing army and he was a very severe warrior, killing and harming any Muslim that he came across. So Osama bin Laden this hadith is inside her body. He says what the Allah who I'm that I was with one of my companions from the unsolved and we thought that we would chase down this man to stop his harm, befalling the Muslims and the soldiers in the army, until we came face to face with him, and we fought him and we overpowered him. And as I placed my sword ready
to strike him to finish him off, he said, a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah. I bear witness that none has the right to be worship except Allah. Osama says the my friend from the answer, he withdrew. The Mansard Shahada, he withdrew, he's a Muslim. I on the other hand, took my blade and I finished him off, killed him.
I went back to the prophet SAW Allah Allah He was cinnamon I informed him of this. The Prophet told me sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how could you have killed him? After he said La ilaha illa Allah, I replied, or messenger of Allah Karna Mota with that He only said it out of fear from my blade when he said it because he was afraid of death didn't really mean it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me, how could you possibly have killed him? After he said that ilaha illallah wa sama says that the prophet SAW Selim repeated this statement over and over. He repeated it so many times that I wished that I hadn't been a Muslim until that moment,
that that sin and everything that happened, would be expunged, that I would be a new Muslim. That's the moment that I would have entered into Islam.
That's how much remorse and regret the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam made him feel because of that one mistake, that one error in judgment. There were some people who say that or the Allahu unduh, we find that after this incident, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam placed him on the outskirts of the circle of the companions. We placed him on the fringe. We didn't really involve him. No, I've only two or three years after this incident, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was towards the end of his life, he prepared one of the biggest, if not the biggest army that the Muslims had ever seen, to fight the main superpower of that time, the Roman Empire, the
Byzantine Roman Empire, and there were 1000s of companions within the army from amongst them was Ramadan or hubbub or the Allahu and Khalid Abdullah Walid rhodiola. One great warriors, major companions, men who had witnessed birth or know how than so many other battles of Islam, who did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam choose to be the leader of that army. Osama bin Hussein, radi Allahu anhu from that mistake,
fulfill them, teaches him nurtures him prepares him to become a leader. That mistake makes him stronger. Not that when a person makes a mistake you think he's finished? Never again will I give him a chance. But the people seldom does the opposite builds me up by mistake makes him stronger. The companion said or messenger of Allah. Why don't you choose someone more experienced? That has said that at the time of that battle against the Romans, he was 18 1920 years old. That's his age. Why don't you choose someone older, someone more experienced someone who's fought more battles. You have people at holiday Blue Valley, Andromeda mahatama, some of the most illustrious companions, why
not choose them? The Prophet said, Son, Allahu Allah, he was sitting him you criticize him, just as you used to criticize his father before and by Allah His father was an able leader. And he too is an able leader.
Imagine if these were the words that you heard the processor level say about you.
His father was an a bleeder he too, is an able leader. How much confidence how much inspiration? How much motivation would he give you hearing those words? And then the puffs of sudden I'm sure he died after this balsamic blue Sage took the army. And he defeated those Romans in that battle for the Allahu Anwar da.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, me to summer learn from his mistake. Musa alayhis salam is being prepared in the same way makes a mistake, but he will learn from that mistake. He leaves Egypt and he goes towards the people of Meghan's area known as Megan.
And we know the story he goes then he finds that there are a number of shepherds, and they take their the animals and their flock of animals and they go and they water them at the watering hole. And then there's two women who have to stay back. No one offers to help them. No one gives them any assistance. No one tells them no chivalry, right? No one says You go first. Don't worry about us. No one does anything. And they're left towards the side. So Musashi said I'm seeing this, he says to the Maha coma, what's wrong? What's your story? palatal honesty used to
be called water our animals our father's old, we can water our animals until these people finish we don't want to be jostling with the men fighting over space fighting over water for them. Some of the scholars of Tafseer say that it was a watering trough, or some type of a big mound that the people used to draw water from. And they would give to the animals. And when they would finish the men, they would seal the wound with the lid that you have on a wall, they will seal it and they wouldn't even look towards the women. And it has said in that notion of the seal. Those scholars say that to lift that lead you needed three, four or five men because of the weight completely ignoring the
women. So what does he do for some Allah Houma, so he
bought his the animals for them from Matala in a will. When he turns away and he seeks some shade. The scholars of Tafseer said he found a tree and he sought the shade of the tree and he made a bee in neelima and zalta ilium in hide in fact, here's our law, the goodness that you've given to me, I am in need in poverty of this. Now look at this Musa alayhis salam has left Egypt, his homeland, where he was a prince growing up and living in the palace of Pharaoh. He's left because he knows that if those Coptic Egyptians catch him, they will kill him, flees for the fear of his life. And he comes to Medina strange area, doesn't know anyone is a stranger doesn't have any wealth. Some of the
scholars that have sealed say that the small amount of provision that he carried with him by the time he reached madeon, erode, finished. But then, even so, even though this is his state, he is mindful of the blessings of Allah invokes the blessings of Allah even in the most difficult of times. He enjoys the blessings of Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is important, because sometimes we go through difficulties and calamities. And those calamities make us forget about the many blessings that Allah has bestowed upon us. Sometimes, we see the calamities that are befalling our brothers and sisters across the world, the Muslim Ummah, and because of that, we refuse to enjoy the
blessings that Allah has bestowed upon us. We will celebrate it. Why? Because our brothers and sisters are going through a hard time. And yes, even though our hearts ache for them, smoke from our religion to say to our children don't celebrate it, because Muslims are dying across the world. That's not the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even when the Muslims were being persecuted, but the Muslims were being tortured and oppressed. The Prophet Selim would joke with his companions he would smile and laugh with them. He would have relations
With his wives and he would joke with him and he will enjoy his time with his family and his children. Realizing that balance is important Maasai Salam is suffering calamity among calamity, but he realizes, realizes that the blessings of Allah upon him monster money, and he also realizes that from those hardships and those calamities, that comes opportunity, a stranger in this land, he now sees that there is an opportunity, an opportunity, that he can stay in this land that there are good people, that perhaps he can even find some work some employment in this land.
And so from this calamity, we have so much good when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam signed the Treaty of the BIA
the treaty the favors of that the terms of the treaty, were not in the favor of the Muslims. They were heavily biased against the Muslims. Yet even so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accepted every condition that arrays placed upon him. And then even when that Muslim man who was in shackles and chains he came seeking refuge and asylum with the Muslims. He escaped from Makkah. He was beaten and he was taken back to Makkah. listings were helpless, even though they were superior in number and strength, helpless to do anything. Allah subhanaw taala said about this in the Quran enough,
Medina that indeed we have given you a manifest victory, that victory from that calamity came victory. From that difficulty and hardship him victory. The victory would be that the number of Muslims at the time of the Treaty of Abia was 14 102 years later, when the props are seldom would conquer America, they would be 10,004 years later, from the Treaty of Abia, just four years after, when the processor limb would make his farewell Hajj, the Muslims would be over 100,000.
for 1718 years, the Muslims were only 1000 and some 1718 years of dour. 17 and 18 years of struggle and hardship. And then many looks like the Polish are placing and favorable terms towards the Muslims. And the pasta seldom accepts them all. Having that belief in Allah, understanding the blessings of Allah, invoking Allah xeljanz how a big becomes a victory. And the Muslims are 1000s in number.
And so Musa alayhis salam he seeks Allah subhanho dialers fevers and blessings. And he asks Allah subhanho wa Taala for his help, Musa alayhis salam has been taken on exile from Egypt, once away from Egypt from that calamity of the mistake that he made. Allah subhanaw taala is preparing him on a journey that will eventually lead him to be one of the mightiest and greatest messengers of Allah. And it is often said that greatness comes through adversity, you have to go through hardship. And anyone that's normally a great leader, goes through hardship. You've got all of the famous names that people mentioned today, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, all of those people, Nelson Mandela, all of
these people that are great leaders that don't have an easy ride. They don't just wake up one day and everything's placed in front of them. They go through trial and hardship, but they make opportunities they learn from their mistakes, and the prophets of Allah. What are greatest examples in this regard? Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses the Prophet Musa he stays in Meridian for some 810 years. He gets married from there, he fulfills his condition, he gains employment. He stays there for quite a long time. And the Prophet musala Islamism Prophet, a prophet of a liat, all of this is happening in the background. He is not a prophet of Allah. Eventually he leaves and as he leaves and
is traveling with his family, he sees a fire at the top of the mountain of a toad. And he says to his family, you wait here let me go and see what's there. Perhaps I can bring some firewood back some food or we can find some people. Let me go and see. And that is what Allah subhanaw taala speaks to him and he gives him revelation makes him a prophet of Allah and he tells him in happy laughter I wonder in
the your job, your message or Moosa is to go back to Pharaoh, for indeed his transgressor.
Musa alayhis salam as is mentioned in Surah Taha at this juncture he makes it one of the most famous two hours of the Quran color of visually sotheby why a silly family? Were huddling up with the terminally sunny yufka who only or john Lee was zero min early. How will it be as the wash the coffee Emily Kane was a bit hotter kefir are one of Cora caca furong the beautiful, concise
wetek Musa alayhis salam brings Musa alayhis salam
has left madeon with his family doesn't know that he's going to be given this message. Not only is he given a message, it's not just any type of message, he has to go to Pharaoh, the single greatest tyrant that ever lived on the face of this earth. We see the oppression and the and the and the problems that many people, Muslims or non Muslims face around the world today. That's nothing compared to what Pharaoh did to his people. The subjugation humiliation that Pharaoh had upon his people. He would as I said, just kill generations of male children because of a dream that he saw. That's the type of ruler he was. He was the one who would say Oh Ha man, build for me a ladder that
goes into the sky. Let me look at this god that Musa keeps talking about. He is the one who would say to his people, and Allah Allah, I am your God, the Most High, he would say to the Muslim to local minima in Hungary. I don't know of any other God besides me. He was the one who would say to them, don't you see all of these rivers in Egypt, where you see the gardens and palaces and master I have what are the God can they be except me. That is the type of person that Musa alayhis salam have to go to Moosa alone. Single from Bernie in Surat, Al no wealth, no power, no strength, no army, nothing has to go against the single greatest dictator.
So what does he make? Rubbish Ronnie Saturday, oh my lord, expand for me, my heart. Why a silly me and make my affairs easy for me. Why melissani are anti untie the knot of my tongue. You have a hope only so that they may understand my speech. It is said that Musa alayhis salam had a speech impediment. Not only does he have to go over all of those problems and issues, Allah chooses a prophet of Allah that has a speech impediment.
stutters, stammers, has a speech impediment, doesn't speak clearly. And that's why.
For hours Allah mentions in the Quran he would say about Moosa I'm Anna Hi, Robin. Hi, the levy, who are maheen on while I occurred to you been, am I not better than this man who is not only of lowly birth, but he can barely unseat his was barely speak can barely understand them, because of a speech impediment. Challenge upon challenge, difficulty upon difficulty, obstacle upon obstacle, the Musa alayhis salam look at the dryer that he makes, connecting himself back to Allah doesn't ask for an army doesn't ask for anything else doesn't ask for, you know, whole, like weapons and money and wealth. He knows that the only way to achieve success in this dunya is by attaching yourself to
Allah. And when you do this, any calamity becomes easy for you. When you know that what you're doing is based upon the Quran and the Sunnah. It is based upon a solid foundation based upon knowledge, every single trial that comes to you, you know how to deal with it. Whereas if you just piss yourself with the details and particulars and minute shape of this issue and that issue, and you have no foundation, that every time a trial comes, you'll be blown this way and that way. And that's why the puffs are seldom with his companions, who would establish their foundations give them essentials in their religion, the problems that we face today, with people calling for healers, and
people saying this, all sorts of crazy stuff going on. And most Muslims don't know. We're confused. We don't know. Perhaps his true purpose is not perhaps right. Perhaps it's not. Why don't we know? Because we have no knowledge. And the knowledge that we seek is very superficial, very superficial. If you were to scratch on that surface, you would find that there's nothing beneath the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam established this principle, that the way you overcome calamity is to make sure that you know what you're doing. Perfect your relationship with Allah. Do what Allah has commanded you. Perfect your relationship with those people that Allah has commanded you to have good
relationships with a be your parents, be good to your spouse, you will tarbiat your children, respect the older have mercy upon the younger, be cooked to your neighbor, all of these things. Once you do them. That is your religion. And if each and every single person in the oma was to do this, then Allah would rectify the situation of the oma when we forgot ourselves, and we became preoccupied with everyone else. That is when the problems began to take place. A man came
to Alibaba the brother, your loved one when he was the halifa and he said, Ali once you turn in your time
We have so many problems fit now upon fitna killing wars battles. Why is it that in your time we have all of this, but in the time of Abu Bakr phenomena, we never had this.
So rdrd Allah what I'm responding and he said, because in the time of Abubakar and Omar, they used to rule over people like me. And now when my time I have to rule over people like you. That's the answer that he gave. Because of the time of the Prophet Solomon, they had calamities when they had difficulties, they would connect themselves back to Allah. But Ali and his wife, Fatima de Allahumma, will pour and they weren't able to cope with with the domestic life that they had. And they wanted from the process of selling them just a single made just one person to help them. The process Salem session and I'll tell you of something which is better than this, say Subhan Allah 33
times and hamdulillah 33 times Allahu Akbar 34 times that is far better than having a mean, when the pastor Salaam would come to his daughter's house, Ali and Fatima and he would see them he would say why don't you stand in the night and pray
and have your rhodiola one said O Messenger of Allah, our souls are in the hands of Allah. If he wishes we wake up if he wishes, we don't wake up. The processor limb said what candle insertional Xsara she enjoyed Allah, how argumentative is man, constantly making excuses are the rhodiola who answered by Allah after that night, I never left PR mundane. They said to not even on the nights of buttons, when he used to go into battle mode. Even on those nights. He said not even on those lines. They connect themselves back to Allah.
And this is the most important thing that Musashi Salaam does, knows that he has a challenge, but he connects himself back to Allah. When the apostle Selim spoke about the jail, and he spoke about all of the trials of the jail, and he said that the greatest trial ever to be for mankind from the time of Adam, until your multi Yama will be the trial of the jail. And he said that the jail will remain on earth for 14 days a day, the length of a year and a day, they don't have a month and the day, the length of a week, and then every other day will be normal days. What is the single one question that the companions asked concerning that the job
that they asked about weapons and armies and strategies and tactics? was the single one question they asked.
Or messenger of Allah? How do we pray on that day?
How do we pray on that day? If you were to analyze this one single question, it will tell you everything you need to know about the mindset, the knowledge, the understanding, the Tobia, of the companions, or the Allahu anhu, much money. The understood is essential point. And so Musashi Salaam says exactly the same thing. That's the first thing that he does connect myself back to Allah. Number two, what Johnny was zero mean.
And make for me a companion, a minister for my family, someone who will assist me how ruin my brother. Make him a prophet as one of Allah, how Pim make him. One of my companions, while he one will have sahami need dishonor, and my brother one is more eloquent than me. Make him a partner with me.
That's the second thing that he asked for righteous companionship. Someone who, when you go through difficulty will help you. Someone who when you're struck with calamity will remind you of Allah, someone who when you're low in Eman will raise your Eman by connecting you back to Allah. And then what does he say? What is the reason is it to win is it overpower is to conquer kanesha Baca Cathy wrong. One of kurata can figure out I will go lower law for more love this is not to inherit the palaces of Pharaoh not to be the leaders of Egypt, but to be the conquest of the earth k was a bit of Europe, so that we both may praise you and glorify you, one corner can see wrong and remember you
When you connect people back to Allah, that is the greatest form of very bad.
The role of the scholar of the day of the street of knowledge of you and me as parents as husbands, as wives everyone is to connect us and others back to Allah.
And remember Sophia and authority Rahim Allah to Allah one of the great, most illustrious scholars of Islam was on his deathbed, a great scholar of Hadeeth with spoilerific, one of the most knowledgeable scholars ever to have lived. He was on his deathbed
his friend in other words, all of her teeth her Mademoiselle Rahim Allah tala came to visit him.
And Sophia an authority when her mother and to the point he began to cry. And he said to her mother, what a man
What do you think Allah will do to me? I've cried by how do you think Allah will judge me after I die? Since Allah
of Islam. So if you're an authority was the one who would say, I've never faced anything more difficult than my sincerity, never fought against anything more difficult than making sure that my intention was pure for the sake of Allah, a great scholar of Islam. Oh hammered. What do you think Allah will do? After I die? Hamad Rahim Allah, Allah, Allah in His own mind, he said, Oh, Sophia, I can't answer that question. I don't know what Allah will do to you after you die. But I can tell you what I think about myself. When Sudan authority, Rahim Allah is the one who is on his deathbed. He's the one who's dying. He's on looking at for advice. Hammadi saying, I don't know about you, tell you
about me instead.
So my mother in law, he said, after I die, if allows to give me a choice. Between my own mother being my judge, Allah being my judge, I would choose Allah.
If Allah gave me a choice on your monthly Yama and he saw him mad, if you want, your mother can be your judge, she will be the one who will judge you and hold you to account for your actions. And she will decide based upon those actions will will take place and she will give us the record. And we will just do as she says, If I had that choice, my own mother. And there is no one more merciful to a person in this dunya than their mother. No one from all of the people living there is more affection and client than the mother, not even the father is anywhere near to the affection of the mother. If I had a choice between her and Allah, I will choose Allah because Allah is more merciful,
more kind, more forgiving, more generous than my own mother.
And that's what the scholars of Islam to even in the most difficult of times, they connect people back to Allah,
the glorifying glorify Allah remembering Allah praising Allah. And so that's what the prophet Musa alayhis salaam does. And he goes on and he battles the people of Pharaoh, and he overcomes them and the army of Pharaoh is drowned and I'll finish with one last two. And that is when Allah subhanho wa Taala saves Musan his people from Pharaoh. And they've escaped from Egypt, and the Prophet moosari salaatu wa Salaam goes away for 40 days to meet his Lord. And Allah subhanaw taala reveals to him the Torah. In his absence as he's gone, those same people that for generation upon generation were in bondage and slavery, subjugated humiliated from the lowest rungs of society and allow raised
them, he gave them a prophet. And he fulfilled the prophecy that they knew of. And Allah saved them from Pharaoh and his army. And now as they're going towards the promised land, what do they do when the Prophet Musa goes away?
They start to worship or cough, they make sure the first opportunity they turn away. Even after seeing miracle upon a miracle that Musashi cinema was given, the staff and the serpent and the locusts and the frogs and the rivers of blood, and then seeing the ocean pop before the miracle upon miracle. Did they have any doubt that Moosa wasn't a prophet of Allah? Did they have any doubt that Musa was a messenger of Allah? They've seen Pharaoh drown before the eyes with one of his army, the enemies destroyed?
And then what do they do? They worship other than Allah. So when Mousavi Salaam is told by Allah, that your people have worshipped other than me, he goes back and he's angry, extremely angry. How after all of these blessings of Allah, the victory that Allah gave you, do you still turn away, showing the importance of this concept that I was talking about fundamentals of knowledge, knowing your religion, knowing your queen, so that even after all of these blessings of Allah, those people will still come and shop?
And so what does he say?
All our bill thoroughly? Well, he, he said, our law forgive me and my brother, how are the Philadelphia rotomatic are interesting to mercy. want our hammer rahimian for Indian? You're the most Merciful of those who show mercy. Loss of Hannah Montana said to the Prophet Musa for what they did, in order for them to make Toba to 70 men who will come and they will make to our before Allah asking for forgiveness. So Allah so the Prophet Musa chose some team and matara Musa Coleman, who's a very knowledgeable Lima, Gardena, 70 men were chosen some of his policy tips he'll say that these were men who were righteous men. Others say that they were men who were involved in building or
making the powerful worshipping that puff. When they came some of the scholars that have seal they said oh Moosa will make this to her, and we'll repent to Allah. But before we do, so we want to see you went and you spoke to Allah. You've had this connection with Allah. You've had this dialogue with Allah
We haven't before we make tober we want to see him arena la Jara. Let us see a la before our eyes. So what did Allah subhanaw taala do? He destroyed all 70 Fela for the trauma Raja when they were destroyed What did Moses say on or below sheet?
Ui of Allah had you went wanted you could have destroyed us and then from a from before
a totally corner be my fabulous sofa, Amina Allah, will you destroy us because of what the foolish do from amongst us? This is our situation today.
Today we have people who in the name of Islam, in the name of Sofia, in the name of being upon the correct path of Islam. They're doing all sorts of crazy things. disobeying Allah worship disobeying Allah killing innocent people, killing men, women children, and making life difficult for everyone else. At only corner be my father's sofa Amina and so we have to bear the repercussions of what the foolish from amongst us to moosari his salatu salam, when he saw his people doing what they're doing, he told them that this is wrong. And he guided them and he asked Allah subhanaw taala to forgive him and his brother. And then he said this statement at only corner Bhima founder sofa
Amina, the foolish when they do things, even the righteous are destroyed. That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when you look at it sooner, you see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam worked on this component of making people understand that when they perform an action when they say a word when they do something, it's not just something which is insular. It's not just something which will affect you in your little circle. But it has repercussions and sometimes those ramifications are far and wide. They said O Messenger of Allah Shall we not kill the hypocrites? These people in Medina who causes problems the enemies of Islam they live amongst us we know who
they are. Why don't we just kill them? The prophet will seldom said will you have the people say that Mohammed kills his own people. Mohammed kills his companions and the mana Philippine of those are the worst of the disbelievers in nomina, Filipina with dark kill us for him in a noun. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his message was based upon mercy. Even Abdullah bin obey blue saloon, the leader of the hypocrites in the time of the prophet of Solomon Medina, when he died, the porcelain prayed his janazah before the law forbade him from praying the janazah he paid his janazah in one eration he took off his robe, and he placed it in his grave, in the hopes that perhaps, Allah
would forgive him. Allah would show mercy upon him, even his arch enemies. Abu sufian for years is trying to kill the prophet of Salaam destroy Islam, murder the companions and the conquest of Makkah, the apostle Selim says, Whoever enters into the house of herbal soufiane is safe. And opposition becomes Muslim. reclaim maybe maybe Johanna is one of those people. The prophet of Solomon, he conquered Makkah he said, that even if you find him clinging onto the, onto the cloth of the Kaaba, kill him,
even if he's by the Kaaba clinging on to its cloth. But when I crema came to the Prophet Solomon is Allah Allah, Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, he accepted him as a Muslim. And he became later on a great companion, and a great warrior of Islam. The challenges that we face today we can often find the solution to them and the answer to them in the Quran, and especially in the story of this great prophet of Allah. Masonic is salatu salam. So my request at the end of this lecture is that we go back to the book of Allah subhanaw taala go to sudo to leukosis go to Surah Tula, Raph go to Surah Taha the sutras in which the story of Musa alayhis salam is mentioned in great detail. Look at the
drawers. Look at the situation, look at the events look at the life of Musa alayhis salam and take benefit from it. Take heed and lessons from it. May Allah subhanaw taala make us from amongst those who understand and contemplate the Quran. I mean he makes from amongst those who placed that knowledge into action, how they will also not only be the Mohammed Ali you will sommige Marine or Santa Monica multimodal ly
