and forgiveness and protection from the evil of ourselves in the sins that we commit. Indeed, whomsoever Allah guides, no one can lead astray in home so Allah leads astray no one can guide and I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone. And now having met some Allah, Allah you will seldom is a slave and messenger. The best of speech is the book of Allah. And the best of guidance is the guidance of Mohammed Salah lo Allah He was alone and the worst of religious matters are those that are innovated, and every religious innovation is a bit and every bit is misguidance and every misguidance will be in hellfire.
We are in the month of Muharram.
One of the sacred months in Islam, Allah shorter.
And whenever we live through the month of Muharram, we live through its most important day, which is the day of Ashura.
And whenever we encounter the day of Ashura, we are constantly reminded of the most important event to take place during the heroine. In fact, during or among the most important event to take place among human history or in human history, which is the deliverance of Musa alayhis salam and his people from Pharaoh and his soldiers.
And the importance of this day is reflected in the fact that it was not only the Jewish tribes in Medina at the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that we're celebrating commemorating and fasting that day. But the Hadees also tells us that the Christians as well used to honor that day.
And the pre Islamic metcons would also celebrate, commemorate and honor that day. And when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam came to Medina and he got to know that this is the day when Allah saved musala Islam and he
People from Pharaoh and that moves fast that day to thank Allah He fasted it and commanded the Muslims to fast it. So imagine that from the first year of age right till today, Muslims continuously fast the day of Ashura and every year they remember that event when Allah saved Musa and his people.
This is an event that transcended time and transcended geography and also transcended religious communities. Why was it so important? That we Today we will fast it by the will of Allah and as long as there is a slam on this earth and people remember that there will be a Muslim who is fasting that day? Why do we commemorate that anniversary, we truly have to appreciate how or what a momentous event that was. For us to understand why we commemorate it and why we remember it.
When Allah subhanho wa Taala to Moosa Allah He said, It have enough, your honor in
go to Pharaoh deliver the message to him for indeed he has transgressed God beyond the bounds of what is acceptable.
Mr. Allison wasn't a stranger to Pharaoh.
After all, he grew up in the court of Pharaoh with him and his wife, Allah Allah Nora, Athena Walla Walla VISTA Pina Minami Casa de Ferro reminds Moosa, we raised you as an infant,
and you've spent a lifetime with us. So he wasn't a stranger to Moo Sally Solomon, he understood how tyrannical he is, how ruthless he is, how devoted devoid of mercy He is how proud Pharaoh is. So Allah wasn't only telling him now go and deliver a simple message it was go and deliver a message, the content of which stop your erroneous way, stop worshipping other gods besides Allah and calling people to your own worship, and worship Allah alone, and also out of cinema Venezuela, as the bomb sent and let the children of Israel free and do not torment them as you've been doing for so long.
And now on top of that,
Musa alayhis salam said to Allah, what am I going
to do? They have charged me with a crime, and I'm afraid that when they seize me, they will kill me.
So he was a wanted man in Egypt. So if a human was to send another human on this mystery on this mission or a similar mission, we would say that he is sending him to a certain death.
A certain death you have to accept your death.
And so it was natural for most at a salon to say
that I am afraid.
And both Lucia and Harun alayhi wa sallam Kala robina.
Eonni Our Lord, we are afraid. And we're talking here about the prophets of Allah. If you want to think about the wisest and the bravest and most complete of human beings, these are the prophets of Allah, the bravest and yet they said, Your Allah we are afraid that he will be hasty and punish us or he will go beyond bounds, transgress and his evil as his habit after all.
And to that Allah subhanho wa Taala says on the latter half, in any monokuma
He says, Do not be afraid, Never be afraid, because I am with you.
And I see all and I hear all
and that was enough for both of them to head to Pharaoh and to speak to him in person to enter his court and to speak to them in person, and in the beginning, they were soft. Towards the end, Musa alayhis salam was very firm with Pharaoh speak to him in language. You wouldn't think that someone can speak to Pharaoh when we're in the lava. Luca Coronavirus, Bora. I am talking to his face he says, I think that you're going to be destroyed.
And what is amazing here is that despite how irksome and how troublesome Moosa and Harun Allium Islam, were to Pharaoh he never tried to kill them and wasn't whenever successful in such an attempt, but he would never even tried to kill them
with the magicians who accepted Islam
or an idea como una comida what also libnah configurable
una Yuna, a shadow
when they accepted Islam immediately
When they saw the sign the Moosa sign. What did Pharaoh say to them? I am going to cut your hands on your feet on opposite sides. And I'm going to crucify you on palm trees. And you will see between me and the Lord of Moosa, who will have the most lasting and the most severe pain,
a tyrant. That's how we behaved with the magician's, but with Moosa and Harun alima salam, Allah stood between him and his plans. And that is one lesson that we will see constantly from the story of Musa and in Ashura. That if you are on the side of Allah subhanho wa Taala doing what Allah wants from you, you do not have anything to fear.
In Nila Hakuna de Lune as Allah says to Moosa
the messengers, when they are with me on my side, they have nothing to fear.
And so we have nothing to fear as long as we are with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we have everything to fear when we are against Allah subhana wa tada and far away from him.
I want to take us to another exchange
where here, the people and the chiefs and the leads of federal
affairs people are talking to him, Polamalu calm if you're on our coma, who leaves you to fill out the way
after the encounters in the speeches and the miracles,
the people, the elites of Pharaoh speak to Pharaoh, and they said, Are you going to leave Moses and his people to spread corruption on this earth and leave you on your gods.
And see how interesting this is.
The message that had come from Allah subhanho wa Taala is called corruption.
Being worshipping Allah Subhana, wa Taala, being kind, being honest, being generous, that's called corruption. What they're doing on the same time is called reformed
Musa alayhis salaam and his people, the best people on this earth at that time, are corrupters.
And Pharaoh and his people are called reformers. And this is how twisted the human minds can sometime be, where you don't see purity as purity, but you can see it as pollution and you perceive your own pollution as purity. And that's those are the inverted standards of disbelief.
And it's either people have reached such a level where they cannot recognize the truth anymore, or the sad part is that they could be lying to themselves and lying to everybody around them.
So are you going to leave them to do all of that? Yeah.
There here is a hint that Pharaoh you're going to lose your power, and we also are going to lose our power as well. And that ironically, is the thing that they accused Moosa of and Harun
was Kunal Kumar Kibriya, the woman
says, then you come to us, to turn us away from what we found our parents worshipping and doing, and so that both of you would have power on this earth, you'd have
honor on this earth, we will never believe you. So the accused Moosa and Harun Allah Hema Salon of seeking power.
While in fact they are the ones who are clinging to power.
And that is typical.
Why traumatic? The Buddha once said that they accuse the other of their own disease.
What did her reply?
How is he going to stop them? Call us and what do you have now home want to stay in Israel on war in Iran, and the same?
ruthless manner, he says, we are going to massacre their sons and keep the woman alive and indeed we have full power over them. We have subjugated them completely.
We're going to massacre their children not just enough to do so.
consistently, systematically, repeatedly, we're going to massacre their sons. That's population control or extermination. And now we have to understand really that situation of venues that are the best people on this earth at that moment. What would they what was their condition? They were a population under arrest. They couldn't leave. They were deprived of leaving the lines of Egypt and they were enslaved. Doing hard labor. They had days.
coders have hard labor that they had to deliver to Pharaoh and his soldiers. And if not, they would be punished and they will not be paid every day.
And they could not worship Allah subhanho wa Taala publicly. That's why musala Islam says the Koran,
pray at home, make your houses mosques, they couldn't do that in public. Now on top of all of that, their children are being killed and they cannot do anything about it.
They cannot push back.
Now in the face of this Musa alayhis salam ala Musa stay in ob la he was a little
smooth Salli Salam tells them he's speaking to them. Seek the assistance of Allah seek their own seek the help from Allah subhana wa tada and be patient.
And there are circumstances where you can do something about your situation to correct it, to retrieve your right right, to push away harm and evil and wrongdoing. And when that is the case, and it's religiously legitimate to do so you have to do so you can't say I'll just trust in Allah and do nothing.
But when you have no power to change your situation, no ability and they had no ability to change their condition. What can they do? He says, Seek your assistance. For trust you put it in Allah subhana wa Taala and then be patient and wait
in a lot of Allah Yuri Swami Yeshua amin Eva, he will ask me but today this earth belongs to Allah. Remember, he's telling them constantly, this earth and everything that is on it belongs to Allah subhana wa to Allah. And he'll give it an inheritance to whomever he wishes. So it can come your way from someone else you receive it, you will get it but from someone else, and you pass it along to someone else, you will never own it. He says so it will pass from some one to another, according to the will of Allah subhanaw taala. So be patient. And if you are pious the consequence, they're happy and belongs to you.
But then what creeps into their hearts and into their minds and creeps into our hearts and into our minds is how long
How long should we wait?
How do we lean amicably and 30 and a woman by the magic Turner? I just want you to really imagine the pain that they were in the threats. How gloomy their future looked? What is the way out?
settling him yeah Moosa. We were harmed and tormented. We suffered troubles before you come to us. And after you came
before we knew you, and even afterwards when you came with a message of Allah and all of these signs we've suffered.
In a sense, when will this be over?
Carla, I saw bukem a ulica. Dubois como esta khlifa come fill out a defender okay photometer.
It says perhaps, and hopefully, Allah subhana wa tada because they had no power of their own. Allah subhana wa Taala is going to destroy your enemy and give you then and you can cause you to inherit this earth, so that you he will see how will you behave?
There is never lose hope
of relief, never lose hope of the promise of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. When Allah says in Surah believe it no matter how much hardship you encounter, Allah always mixes that are follows up shortly with ease.
So there is this worship of interval waiting for relief from Allah subhana wa Tada. And as long as you are waiting for relief from Allah subhanho wa Taala you are in worship. So he says wait, because that is the consequence. And if you wait for that consequence and you mix that with patience, you will prevail. No matter who your enemy is.
photocall he had a was tougher line you want to come faster.
hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Hamed and Kathy are on TV but nobody can see. Can you have Bora, buena yoga
The pain the trouble that we encounter whether individually or as a group or as an oma
has its benefits.
Because without them,
a person won't be able to appreciate what's going to come after and he will not be ready for it.
That is why Musa alayhis salam makes a link between their situation and what is going to come after us out of bukhoma ubicado como esta Khalifa kung fu Lord Vishnu is not just, we are weak, and we're oppressed, or I am having trouble in my life personally, with my wife, with my husband, with my children with my job.
And when will this be over? And how will it be over and what's going to come next? It is very easy for Allah subhanho wa Taala just to completely give you everything that you're asking for, but will you be ready when Allah gives it to you? Because he tells them for him Buddha Dharma Lune when Allah gives you this power on this earth after you've been oppressed, how will you treat other people who are oppressed? Will you oppress yourself? Other people? If Allah gives you this money that you're asking for after you've been poor? Will he be able to control it? Or will it ruin you? When Allah gives you this that you're asking for the job, the position, the title, that you're so desperately
seeking the wife, the children, when you receive them now? For a lot, okay? For time alone? Are you ready for it or not? So sometimes Allah doesn't give it to you until you are ready. And when he has not given to you, they've given it to you, you're not ready yet. Allah subhana wa Taala could at any night have told a Israelites leave and destroys fair on his shoulders. But he waited, and he waited. And he waited till the time was right till they were ready.
And then it's happened.
Contrast that with the attitude of Pharaoh and his people.
called Luma mattina be human. I attended Asana, BFM, and
they spoke to Mr. Ali Salaam, they accused him of being a magician. And after they've seen all of the signs, they said, no matter what sign you bring to us to be which us
to play tricks on us, we will never believe in you.
And that is the ultimate of stubbornness. saying to someone, even in an argument, I don't care what proof you bring to me. I'm not going to accept your position. I don't care what son you bring to me I will never accept that to be the truth. Allah says farson Allah He will do fine our gerada before they are welcome Allah Donna it masala so we sent on them the flood
and the frogs and the lies and the locusts.
clear signs, one after the other one that each one of them was supposed to be enough for them to realize this is coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala And Pharaoh has no power to stop it. But first check about what Ken Coleman would remain. No they were proud they rejected it and they were criminals.
So they rejected all of these signs from Allah subhana wa tada
and that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala destroyed them.
And before that the guy that follows
they said what a mobile collymore original connubia mucho dinero de Cadena Haider in the in cash after unoriginal, Amina Melaka Hola, Luciana maka Bernice Raji. When the plague overtake over took them, they come to move Sally salon. Now they need him. They come to move Sally Sue them and they said Dr. Moosa supplicate and invoke your Lord, by the promises that he had given you. If you relieve us of this plague that had overtaken us, we will believe in you and we will free the Israelites just let that happen.
So Allah says hello maca. Chef nanomol reaches a larger in homebody who either omean Khufu it says when we relieved and removed that plague that punishment, we both did away till an appointed time.
They broke their promise and they broke their word.
So you see the difference here people are under duress and people under stress and what do they say? And what do we say? If Allah just gives me this, I'll be a better person. If Allah just does this for me, I will be this and I will be that and as soon as Allah had given it to them, they turned back on their word and they're back on their promise. A lot did not want this to happen to the Israelites.
To the people of Musa alayhis salaam
He wanted them to be true and faithful to their, to their rules. And that's why they stayed under that punishment until they were ready.
And when they were ready
Allah subhana wa Taala commanded them. Firstly Viva La to lead them away at night, in the computer on you will be followed.
And I want you guys to imagine that final scene.
We're talking about a people who had been enslaved and subjugated, they have no weapons, no way to defend themselves. They reach this great body of water. And then they witness and see behind them the soldiers of Pharaoh and we're talking about an army a well equipped army, a state weapons armors animals now they look at them. And there is no way to defend themselves and they say naturally in allama dracoon
we're going to be seized. They're going to kill us, or at least take us captives back.
And what is Musa alayhis salaam Say hi to killer in Nairobi Sadie.
One is to remember this killer in Europe visa Dino, with the is Allah my Lord and He will guide me.
Now where is this relief? exit is going to come from? Maybe Mr. Ali Salam at that moment had no idea this is going to split. Maybe he never had imagined that Allah subhana wa Taala will make this happen.
But what he trusted is that Allah told me to go
and I'm walking on the path that Allah charted for me. And I am with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now after he tells me to go with he let go of me.
I don't care what I see. I don't care what they have. I don't care what power they claim to possess. In the era of this ad. I have my lord with me and He will guide you. And if you're on our side, you can say that no matter how gloomy and dark it seems, in the art of deciding Who's your guide Allah subhanho wa Taala who will protect you Allah subhanho wa Taala who will protect you from the plots of your enemy who might be plotting everyday Allah subhanho wa Taala but you're powerless and you are weak, but I have a law on my side. That's the lesson that Musa alayhis salam is teaching on the day of Ashura in Europe, Visa D. And then the sea splits and you know the story he walks in, they
walk on dry land.
And he tries it and the sea collapses on him and he destroys him. And Allah says, Well, what Athena
Athena can we use takuna machete cannot do mareeba Lottie Baraka
automatically Maduro began to snap a nice Ravi masaharu, the modern American is no for our new home mechanic issue.
He says subhanho wa Taala. And then they were destroyed.
And he says, and then we came, gave them as inheritors of this land, we gave it to the people who were subjugated and oppressed to the Israelites, we gave them the land, the eastern side and the western side, the blessed land, we gave it to them.
And the promise that Allah had given to the Israelites and Moosa was fulfilled, because they were patients before sabado
were they not patient, they would not have gotten any of that. So because of their patients, Allah said, We destroyed the enemy and gave them this power. And now they are the people who are controlling this land. And as to Pharaoh and his people, we destroyed everything that they built, and everything that they produced.
So in this story, brothers and sisters, we see
whether it's on a micro or on a macro level, personal or an Omega level, wherever you might be, and whatever think we might be thinking about and troubling you that the day you've actually rot reminds you constantly that if you put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and you stay faithful, and you walk on the path that Allah wants you to pass to walk on,
then Allah is with you. And Allah will champion your cause. And Allah will take care of you and Allah will guide you even if there is no one around you. And if you take the opposite path as your own, and his people and his soldiers and supporters did, then there is going to be destruction if not sooner than later.
It's gonna be destruction, and humiliation and crazy and other and punishment in this life and in the next and that is the example that Allah subhanho wa Taala is given
To us, and sometimes you hear our impatience and we are impatient people. When is this going to happen? Somebody wronged me. I want him to be punished. I want to see a lot of justice with that person. Somebody took my rights I want them to be suffering I want them this unknown that and think about it and think about the story of Ben we sort of invited Allah subhanho wa Taala delayed around so long
was it that Allah did not have the power God forbid.
But it wasn't the right time for the Israelites and it wasn't the right time to forfeit a home. So the right time for you and the right time for me and the right time for us if we are on our last path will come. But you need patience and faithfulness. And then Allah subhana wa tada will support you as to when will it happen? How will it happen? In what way in what manner? Allah subhana wa tada knows and we do not decide.
We do not decide how this person and that person should be punished. Your Lord is the one who decides the right time and what right away.
It is not our job, but what is our job?
Do we have patience? And we trust Allah subhanho wa Taala and are we asking him are doing what he's asking of us?
So as we prepare to fast, the day of Ashura and every year that we fasted, remember this eternal message that Allah wants us to continuously remember that Allah saved Musa alayhis salam and his people and destroyed their enemies. remember why he saved them and remember why he destroyed the other party.
So as Allah subhanho wa Taala, to forgive us all of our sins, He Allah teaches the lessons of the Quran, and teach us lessons of the day of Ashura. Yala teaches the lessons of the Quran and teaches the lessons of the day of Ashura. Allah teaches the lessons of the Quran and teaches the lessons of the day of Ashura. Allah make us of those who fast the day of Ashura and accept that fasting from us. Now Allah forgive us our sense of our past year. You ally unite the hearts of non Muslims upon the truth. He Allah unite the hearts of Muslims upon the truth. He Allah unite the hearts of Muslims upon your book and the sin of your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam aloha manana Silikal
