00:00:41--> 00:01:22

on praise and thanks belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala the most Hi, we thank him and we seek His help and aid and we ask Him to forgive us and we seek His refuge from the evil of ourselves and the sins that we commit. Indeed, whomsoever Allah guides, no one can lead astray, and whomsoever Allah leads astray, no one can guide and I've ever witnessed that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone, and that Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a slave and messenger. The best of speech is the book of Allah and the best of guidance is the guidance of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the worst of religious matters are those that are innovated and every religious

00:01:22--> 00:01:28

innovation is a bit of every bit that is misguidance and every misguidance will be in Hellfire and bad.

00:01:29--> 00:01:33

We will continue in sha Allah with the story of Musa alayhis salaam.

00:01:35--> 00:02:00

And we have stopped last time after Moosa had found refuge in the house of his enemy in the house of Pharaoh. And we've seen how Allah subhanho wa Taala planned and how frown planned and the plan of Allah subhana wa Taala prevailed and Musa was to be raised in the house of Pharaoh protected out of harm's way.

00:02:02--> 00:02:05

And Allah subhanho wa Taala after he tells us that,

00:02:06--> 00:02:47

and after he reminds us of the promise of Allah that is, that is fulfilled and will be fulfilled. Despite the fact that many people do not know. He tells us well in Marbella, how should the host awatea hoekman workaholic energies in mosinee Allah subhanho wa Taala bypasses many years. And he says and when he has reached, I should demo his strength, his physical strength westerleigh he reached its height at a no hookman what we have given him wisdom and we've given him knowledge and does do We reward those who have a sense of excellence in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:48--> 00:03:29

It was not needed for us to know what happened in between. It was enough for us to witness that Allah subhana wa tada secured the life of Musa alayhis salaam and his family and the future of Musa alayhis salaam and his family of 10 years pass. And Allah wants to take us to an important juncture in the life of Musa because things now will change. He's been living in the court of Pharaoh or in the house of Pharaoh, things now will have to change, new things are going to happen. What is going to happen first Allah tells us in a brief statement, what would characterize the entire life of Musa alayhis salaam so far, he was from a Muslim, though he was raised in the core of Pharaoh in his in

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

the palace of Pharaoh but his mother raised him.

00:03:32--> 00:03:56

His family raised him to his true family. And so he had a certain excellence in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala excellence when behaving with other people, and we will see examples of Moses excellence in sha Allah shortly. And Allah says because of that, we've given him he'll come and aim knowledge and then wisdom with that knowledge.

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

So Musa alayhis salam, in a sense achieved perfection, physical perfection.

00:04:04--> 00:04:08

And he achieved also mental and knowledge wise perfection.

00:04:09--> 00:04:32

And if you want Allah subhanho wa Taala to give you knowledge, and to give you a hook more hikma and to guide you, then you know the formula, you be of the people of SN and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will teach you and He will guide you and He will protect you as he did. Allah He, as he did subhanho wa Taala will Musashi alayhi salam.

00:04:34--> 00:04:42

That is very word of essence. So if you're if you're with the side or on the side of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhana wa Taala does not leave you alone.

00:04:44--> 00:04:49

And I want us to learn from the story of Musa alayhis salaam how Allah subhanaw taala does not leave us alone.

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

It says afterwards

00:04:56--> 00:04:58

and here the test of moose is going to start

00:05:00--> 00:05:26

Holland Medina tala Heaney off let him in earlier he entered the city at a time when people were when there's low activity in the city, people did not notice the people did not know they were not around. So did they see Hello Delaney after that he learned he heard I mean she it he will have I mean I do. So we found in it, two people fighting this from his people from his faction and the other from his enemy.

00:05:28--> 00:05:33

First of all, so let me see it here I'll let him in. I do he thought as a who Mustafa Ali.

00:05:34--> 00:05:44

So the one who was from his grew from his people, as Moosa for help against the one who is from their enemy.

00:05:46--> 00:05:55

And Musa Ali Salam pushed him with his hand, and this is the power of Musa he pushed him with his hand and the man died accidentally.

00:05:57--> 00:05:57

So

00:05:58--> 00:05:59

that was his end.

00:06:01--> 00:06:04

Let's stop here for a second Why were they fighting?

00:06:05--> 00:06:09

Now the Quran doesn't tell us about the specific reasons why they were fighting.

00:06:11--> 00:06:16

But what mahu Allah, Allah knows best. The general reason for their fighting is there

00:06:17--> 00:06:22

hasn't been she it he will have I mean, I do we they are from two different groups.

00:06:23--> 00:07:05

And the specific reason that that day led to that specific fight is not important, because that specific reason is fed by that general and more important reasons, two groups that were competing and fighting with each other. So it doesn't take much for two people to members of those groups to go at each other's throats and wants to kill each other. And that is Emmylou shaytaan. That's what Moses says, I had I mean, how many shades on this is from the work of the shade one. This is what Pharaoh wanted to split people and divide them at a loss of Hannah what data does not want that and does not approve it. Allah did not reveal the religion, the true religion, so that people will

00:07:05--> 00:07:12

divide and kill each other, he revealed the religion so that they all submit to Him and worship him as one.

00:07:13--> 00:07:24

That's the objective of the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he did not make them different, have different colors and backgrounds and languages and ethnicities, so that they would fight each other.

00:07:25--> 00:07:29

He made them so that they would learn from each other and complete each other.

00:07:30--> 00:07:32

It's a test for them.

00:07:35--> 00:07:40

But the problem is that people in the world today including Muslims themselves, they clash.

00:07:41--> 00:08:12

And they clash against those who do not speak the same language, don't share the same heritage, don't have the same color don't have the same background. And that is a tendency in the world today among Muslims and non Muslims, for people to split along these lines. And this again, should remind us this is from Mr. Shea fun. Even the pious men, the virtuous men, Mustafa Ali Salim was sucked into this conflict. And a lot of the conflicts in the world today are

00:08:14--> 00:08:15

of this type.

00:08:16--> 00:08:34

And as Muslims, we see Allah Subhana, Allah telling us, you see, you see where this will lead to death and killing. If you think you're better just because of this, and because of that, which Allah did not authorize, you're going to kill him or he's going to kill you. His people are going to kill your people, or the other way around.

00:08:35--> 00:08:41

How do I mean, I'm a fan, this is from the work of the shaman that wants to divide the people, and then have them kill each other

00:08:43--> 00:08:45

in the whole movie, and that's the

00:08:47--> 00:08:55

that's the attribute of the shaitaan he's an enemy to you. And he wants to misguide you, and he's clear in his action and it is plots.

00:08:56--> 00:08:58

Then what did Musa do after that?

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

And there lies also another lesson.

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

Did Musa alayhis salam say?

00:09:08--> 00:09:10

Well, they've killed so many of us.

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

That's fine.

00:09:15--> 00:09:18

One for One, or one for 100, or one for the 1000.

00:09:19--> 00:09:23

That if you can imagine with me the extent of the agony of Venezuela.

00:09:25--> 00:09:53

How many mothers have lost children because of Pharaoh, and that's last stayed with them, stayed with the husband who could not defend his son stayed with the mother who lost that infant and stayed with the children who are told over and over and over again. They came in the middle of the night they kidnapped my child for me, I could hear him crying, and then I could hear the cries stop. And I knew what they did to him. How many of these stories circulated in benissa

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

and Moosa must have heard this.

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

Did he say I was justified in killing

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

him because they kill us. So let's kill them back.

00:10:04--> 00:10:07

Did he say that I have this justification, honor

00:10:09--> 00:10:27

of being the Valentin FC facility? He said, Allah, I have run myself, so forgive me. So he forgave him. He was not authorized. And he said, No, I think at that point, and it's an accident, but he was not authorized to kill that person he was not on he did not deserve to be killed.

00:10:28--> 00:10:30

Not just because he's from the people of Pharaoh,

00:10:31--> 00:10:39

that he was supposed to be killed, not just because of the crimes of Pharaoh on his soldiers, that he deserves to be killed. No.

00:10:41--> 00:10:42

And as we will see,

00:10:45--> 00:10:56

that Musa alayhis salam goes back again. And he finds the same person, the same Israelite person, fighting with another of his enemies and the enemies of Musa alayhis salam.

00:10:58--> 00:11:04

And here, it's as if Allah subhanho wa Taala is directing us to something that is important. And again, Allah knows best.

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

What is the path? How do you resist your enemy?

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

How do you fight back?

00:11:16--> 00:11:23

There's the image your way. And then there's the way of the prophets of Allah,

00:11:24--> 00:11:47

you have an enemy, and you hate him, and you hate his actions towards you. And you might think that you have to strike back and this is what that person was doing, striking back in an insignificant way in an insignificant matter that will achieve insignificant results, fighting with a single person from his enemies. What is this going to do? Even if you kill him? What is this going to do nothing.

00:11:50--> 00:12:01

And it says, If Allah subhanho wa Taala was showing mu Sally's salon and showing us No, there is a course that needs to be run, you have to take the message to your enemy, and inform them.

00:12:02--> 00:12:09

And you have to take the message to your people and inform them and the course needs to run it to its end.

00:12:10--> 00:12:47

So that the enemy will receive the message and rejected and your people will receive the message and it and accepted and committed themselves to it. And then Allah subhana wa Taala will decide through events, what is going to happen next, he will give them victory to your people when you when they deserve it against the other people who have deserved the condemnation of Allah subhana wa Taala. But at this point, bringing side issues to the forefront and thinking that you're actually finding your enemy is not allowed and is fruitless. And from that you're not allowed to go and kill him ever you want just because you feel angry, or you're emotional.

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

Right?

00:12:51--> 00:12:55

you commit yourself to the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala wherever he takes you.

00:12:56--> 00:13:01

And that is one lesson that we learn here from the story of Musa and he said

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

no,

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

Mashallah, he said I needed to go through some trial and sorted through some fitna and ask yourself, this

00:13:14--> 00:13:18

wasn't Musa from among, and mostly known. He was a good man.

00:13:19--> 00:13:23

And through no fault of his own, he did not intend to kill this person.

00:13:24--> 00:13:25

He's dead.

00:13:26--> 00:13:28

And he's accused of killing him.

00:13:30--> 00:13:37

And now people are looking for him. And all his world that he has lived in comfort for so long now is collapsing.

00:13:39--> 00:13:50

And he has to run away and he doesn't know where he's running to. And he's a fugitive now Now I want you to take this and put it in our world today. If this happens to you,

00:13:51--> 00:13:53

through no fault of your own, it happens.

00:13:54--> 00:14:04

And you have to run away, or you're accused, and you're persecuted. And you leave everything behind and so on. And maybe at that time

00:14:06--> 00:14:11

you ask yourself or the shaitaan comes in he says What have I done to deserve this?

00:14:13--> 00:14:24

Haven't I've been praying and fasting in them? Haven't I been good to people haven't I've been doing this and this and this and that. A good family man, a good message man, a good message woman have What did I do to deserve this?

00:14:27--> 00:14:32

What did Moosa do to deserve this was a loss of Hannah what to Allah, putting Moosa through this to punish you?

00:14:35--> 00:14:38

Or was Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, preparing Moosa for something greater?

00:14:40--> 00:14:45

Moosa could not be Musa alayhis salam who is the best prophets of our life, he stayed in Egypt

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

could not happen. Musa had to go through this pain. Musa had to flee Mosul had to go to another place and live a different life for 10 years, to be able to come back to Egypt with the message that he has to be

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

Leader of his people, and so is what Allah subhanho wa Taala does. If he wants something good for you, he puts an obstacle in your way to elevate you and to raise you. He puts it so that you fix yourself. He puts it so that you increase your Eman. He puts it so that he can train you so that you'll be a better person. And then you have the choice. Moosa acnm could have been went back on everything that he knew, I'm not going to be a good person anymore. I'm not going to worship Allah I'm not going this is the reward for everything that I've done is for me to leave my home and my family, he could have done this and that would be the end of Moosa, we couldn't we would not even

00:15:37--> 00:15:38

have heard about Musa

00:15:40--> 00:15:53

or he would continue in the same way faithful to Allah subhanho wa Taala regardless of what happens, trusting in Him and that produces Musa alayhis salaam that we're talking about today. So this, remember,

00:15:54--> 00:16:28

if Allah subhanho wa Taala tests you he's not doing this without wisdom, without objective and without a reason. It is only up to you if you did if you decide to accept the gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala though it's bitter sometimes you just have to get used to the bitterness a little bit and then sweetness comes after like medicine, bitter sometimes, but it will kill you. May you really know he'll be higher on you should be the one whom Allah subhanho wa Taala wants good for he afflicts he tests with affliction that's a heady from the prophets a lot.

00:16:29--> 00:16:41

So if you're tested over and over and over, don't say Allah hates me, rather say Allah subhanaw taala loves me. But of course you have to be patient and content with Allah subhana wa tada for that to happen.

00:16:43--> 00:17:08

Let us summarize the story here or summarize other parts of the story. he flees, he runs away. And when he's heading towards medion pile as a New York City, he still remembers Allah subhanho wa Taala he doesn't know where he's going, he says But still, he's heading somewhere. And he's asking Allah subhana wa Taala for guidance. I hope Allah will guide me to the best of ways he doesn't know where he's going.

00:17:09--> 00:17:15

What am I What am I gonna do in order to Allah you met Amina nesea spoon what what did that mean? Dhoni Kimura, it needed to be done.

00:17:16--> 00:17:23

When he reached the water, the well of Midian he found a way around it, people

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

who are giving water to their cattle.

00:17:27--> 00:17:50

And he found out to the side to women who are holding back their cattle and their sheep. He said What is the matter with you? What is that is what is holding you back Mahatma Hakuna is they said we do not go and seek water and get water until they all leave until all the shepherds leave. And our father is an old man. Well, when he hung up.

00:17:52--> 00:17:58

They said here that this has summarised the conditions and the etiquette for women, if they need to work outside the home.

00:18:01--> 00:18:42

First of all, there should be a need, what a boon actually can can be our man, our old man or our father is an old man. So there's no one else to help them. So they have to go out and work. So first, they have to know that they want to, they have to. And that's the etiquette, right? Second of all, they weren't mingling with the men, they were fighting with the men, they weren't shouting with the men. They weren't loud. They were shy, and they were staying behind. And he says that is the other condition and etiquette a woman working outside, when she's out shot outside, she doesn't become a man like other men, see knows that there's a difference. She doesn't mingle, she doesn't

00:18:42--> 00:18:56

push, she doesn't shower, she doesn't joke around and kid around with them, and then lower the gate, lower the curtain of modesty. It doesn't happen. She doesn't get used to it so much that she becomes one of them.

00:18:57--> 00:19:08

She always keeps a distance. And so we understand from that, too, that there's something special about those two women. And that there is something strange about that,

00:19:09--> 00:19:31

about that sound that finds these two moments in need of help. And yet they don't tell them. They don't give them the first term to go and fetch water. No, they have to wait until everybody is done. So there's something strange about that town. But there is something very good about those two women. And we can start speculating that they are from a good family just because they're doing this.

00:19:33--> 00:19:46

And Musa alayhis salam comes for sakala hometel Mehta will let you know when he goes and he fetches water for them. He's a strong man and he sat down and had been he goes to the shade and he says how not to be in neelima and Cynthia iligan and

00:19:48--> 00:19:54

he says, Oh Allah, I am for the good that you reveal or that you sent down to me in need.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

And there is some valuable insights in this area. We will discuss in the second football

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

Hola Hola.

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

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Hamdan catharanthus even Mubarak and he was he was a Lima haidara Sunni he Muhammad

00:20:27--> 00:20:31

sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, ama. But

00:20:33--> 00:20:36

sometimes it's good to have an outsider come and examine what you're doing.

00:20:38--> 00:21:13

If you're in a town or an organization, or what have you do some time gets used to what you're doing to your own faults and to your own mistakes, and you cannot see them anymore. Sometimes it's good for someone from the outside to come and observe and say there is something wrong here. That is not quite right. And there is something very good about you. If you accept this criticism, though, it's coming from someone that you may not know that well. But as long as it's advice as and as long as it is constructive, that you accept it. He came from outside Allah, his cinnamon, he found that there is a problem. Maybe they got used to this problem. Maybe they have been paid attention to it

00:21:13--> 00:21:19

anymore, that it's fine for them to leave woman behind. But he soon found that no,

00:21:20--> 00:21:35

it wasn't fine by him. And so we go and he fetched the water for him for them. And here again, you find the son of Musa alayhis salaam, right? He's exhausted. He's a fugitive. He's running away. In days, he has no he had nothing to eat.

00:21:36--> 00:22:07

And yet, like a light, wherever it is, it shines, and it changes away, it chases away the darkness. That's how we are supposed to be like a light wherever you are, you shine. You go in a place you help in another place you help in another country you help and so on. Because what are you filled with, you're filled with a man, you're filled, you're noticing Allah subhanho wa Taala. And everything that you're doing as a low is good to you're good to people. It doesn't matter where you are. So that's why he just comes down. And that's the first thing he knows. And the first thing that he does is that he helps them.

00:22:09--> 00:22:15

And because he helped and then he didn't ask anything in return from them. He helped me he said, Oh,

00:22:16--> 00:22:33

man can I see only Abdi cannot men can have your own that can allow you only if you are helping your brothers and sisters Allah will help you. So he helped. He went back nice thing, nothing from them and asked Allah for help. And then they helped came through them. They didn't ask for it. And he accepted it. He said on

00:22:39--> 00:22:42

Twitter who met him she understood here, we will conclude with that and shall

00:22:43--> 00:22:46

we Sagittarius the home atom, she has to hear harlot in the

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

drama subtitle. And so one of them came

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

walking

00:22:54--> 00:23:01

modestly and with shyness. And she said My father is calling you to reward you for the good that you have done to us.

00:23:03--> 00:23:48

And they say again, you look at this woman, and what she says and how she walks how she behaves. And you know that the family is good. Not through pretension, right? Not through I know that my son will never do this. I know my daughter or they will never do this and just just pride. It's not just pride is you didn't raise in that way. But But you hold and that is just pride. And then you find out later they've done this and that and more. No, here he took care of her. So when he sent her with that message, she came like the innocent pure woman shoe is that has not kept the company of men. She comes with modesty shyness. And she says very briefly, my father is calling you to reward

00:23:48--> 00:23:51

you for the good that you've done. And that was it. She didn't say anything more.

00:23:53--> 00:23:54

And that was enough.

00:23:57--> 00:24:01

And we and we see here the nature of that woman and we see there the nature of that family.

00:24:03--> 00:24:15

And so when that father and we know we ran out of time that when that father would ask Musa alayhis salaam to marry one of his daughters we understand then why Musa said yes.

00:24:17--> 00:24:20

Allah subhana wa Taala chose this family.

00:24:22--> 00:24:26

He chose actually both for each other, that family who had no helper

00:24:27--> 00:24:32

did they know or did they imagine that Allah is from nowhere is going to send Moosa

00:24:34--> 00:24:55
