To know humbly love salatu salam ala Rasulillah Harada and he or sabe are seldom more madam than I info now and finally my LinkedIn How is it now at man? Honorable Alameen mask Allah behind me in our Amara Jaime to make us as those who are blessed and beneficial knowledge, those who seek knowledge and pursue it for the benefit of the fer under the benefit of the dunya and may Allah azza wa jal

00:00:25 --> 00:00:57

fix and correct our intention and grant us the success of this life and the success of the Hereafter Amin al Bellamy May Allah azza wa jal grant us an Eman and fear of him subhanho wa Taala privately and publicly so that would be pleasing to Him. subhanho wa Taala in all conditions and in all of hairs. So the story, though will begin today with is the story of Musa or Musa and Al Habib.

00:00:59 --> 00:01:02

And this is a story that you will find in Surah Al Qaeda

00:01:03 --> 00:01:05

and Allah azza wa jal

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

had a place in Solotica. Understanding that, or if we understand that Surah to GAF is something that we repeat weekly recommended that we repeat weekly, you understand that the stories and sorting

00:01:22 --> 00:02:11

are subject to weekly contemplation. Because something that you read every single week, is something that affords you the opportunity to revisit this story every single week. And when you visit something every single week, you're supposed to take lessons from it. And the more that you read, and the more that you think the more that you discover, or at least the more that you are reminded of the basic facts that that story holds. And one of them as you will see, is the limitation of human knowledge. Compared to divine knowledge, and the trust that someone anyone should have in Allah azza wa jal far and beyond what they see, and they experience and they think, or they feel so

00:02:11 --> 00:02:48

it's far beyond emotions far beyond observation, find beyond Intel, far, far beyond intellect, you understand that this is how we understand the world around us. You understand it through your intellect, right? You understand that through your emotions, you understand that through your experience. So if Allah is knowledge is far beyond all of that you learn through the story to submit it to him. Subhanahu Adana, and the story begins in Surah LKF without an intro, Allah azza wa jal immediately says, We call on Musa Fatah, hula Agra had a blue image.

00:02:50 --> 00:03:08

And if anyone is interested, right, because we're gonna go through these ideas, if you have your must have with you and you want to follow up or you're welcome to do this, if you want to do this, or you could just take notes. So Allah says, and remember when Musa said to His servant,

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

I will continue to travel.

00:03:12 --> 00:03:47

I will continue my journey until I reach ledger man behind the meaning of the two seas or travel indefinitely. That's how the story begins. We don't understand what happened before and one Musa is making this declaration, but you understand from the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the background. That's why it's important that you will take the Sunnah, the authentic sound sunnah to understand the stories of the Quran, because they give you relevant and important background. So what is the story

00:03:49 --> 00:04:03

of Moses journey led sunnah? So Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Allah you wa sallam says that once upon a day Musa alayhis salam stood up by stood delivering a message a hot

00:04:04 --> 00:04:11

among the Israelites, but we saw it and it was an emotional hot weather people started crying.

00:04:12 --> 00:04:17

And after he finished it Alayhis Salam one approached him and he said, man,

00:04:19 --> 00:04:21

who's the most knowledgeable on Earth.

00:04:22 --> 00:04:24

So Musa Ali Salam said,

00:04:25 --> 00:04:30

he says I am right, so he says, who's the most knowledgeable on Earth?

00:04:31 --> 00:04:45

So Musa says I am so the Hadith says that of Allahu alayhi salam Yeah, Carrie Lane May Allah he says Allah azza wa jal blamed him for that answer, that he did not refer that knowledge back to Allah azza wa jal

00:04:46 --> 00:04:49

right, but he did not say Allahu Allah.

00:04:50 --> 00:04:59

But he said I am another raishin he says, What are you rica he says, How do you know? There is such and such a person in such as

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

Chilean who knows more than you

00:05:03 --> 00:05:07

hear you begin to see the contours of this story, right?

00:05:08 --> 00:05:12

It is about how much you know and how much you think you know,

00:05:14 --> 00:05:17

compared to others and then compared to Allah azza wa jal.

00:05:19 --> 00:05:22

So most early, he said, and he said, How can I reach him?

00:05:24 --> 00:05:46

He said, and that's in the Sunnah. He said, you carry with you a dead fish, and you travel. And when that fish comes back to life, that's where you will find him. Right? So he travels, and that's where the Quran picks up. And he says, subhanho wa taala. He tells his servant,

00:05:47 --> 00:05:59

and his servant is his disciple as well, which is Joshua Newsha alayhi salam, who later is to become a prophet among Benway Surah Al and lead the Israelites into Jerusalem.

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

So he tells them I will continue to travel until I reach that destination that Allah told me about or I will travel indefinitely humbled by meaning long periods of time. The question to ask yourself, first of all, is what makes Musa alayhis salam so determined to meet that person?

00:06:23 --> 00:06:38

Okay, so the Ask yourself first that question, what makes Musa alayhis salam so determined to meet that person? So what if he knew that there is someone on Earth? Who knows more than he does? So what is on me?

00:06:39 --> 00:06:41

He wanted to learn from him, right?

00:06:42 --> 00:06:44

So why is it that he wanted to learn from him?

00:06:46 --> 00:06:48

Because everything that you learn

00:06:50 --> 00:06:56

that pleases Allah azza wa jal, primary religious knowledge brings you closer to him.

00:06:58 --> 00:07:03

So if you have never thought about it, Musa Ali suddenly said I will travel forever.

00:07:04 --> 00:07:18

Because if I get that knowledge, it brings me closer to Allah azza wa jal, so I want that. So I'm seeking it. So this is a journey, in seeking knowledge, feel vulnerable. And this is

00:07:20 --> 00:07:53

you know, like in critical Hadith, they talk about relative your political journey to seek knowledge. They talk about that. They traveled from Baghdad to Damascus, they traveled to Egypt, they traveled to Mecca seeking a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. This is a journey to seek knowledge, but not just to write it, not just to get promoted to learn something that brings you closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. That's the result. So what's the first lesson that if you wish to learn anything today, the first lesson that you can burn is that virtue,

00:07:54 --> 00:08:14

that virtue of any effort that you put to learn? You traveled to the masjid, you travel to another city, you travel overseas, you go online, you listen to a lecture, you take notes, you buy a book, you spend money to buy books, you buy so many books, you don't know where to keep them, right? All of this is jihad.

00:08:16 --> 00:08:18

All of this is jihad.

00:08:19 --> 00:08:22

And we are privileged today because our jihad is comfortable.

00:08:23 --> 00:08:30

Right? But if you have Musa Ali, he said under a seeking knowledge, do you think that this was an easy travel?

00:08:32 --> 00:08:44

Right? So if as people previously it says this is a journey to please Allah azza wa jal, namely, a travel that we do today to please Allah.

00:08:45 --> 00:08:53

So there are there's travel where you seek sin. There's travel that is permissible. Right? Vacation

00:08:54 --> 00:08:57

Namie a travel where do you please Allah oz?

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

What is that?

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

You're allowed to answer.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:04

I heard somebody say,

00:09:05 --> 00:09:20

good, and also had five. Those are the ones but today these are really comfortable travel compared to the past right. And when we travel we don't only travel really for Umrah and Hajj, we travel also for the dunya. So we do this

00:09:21 --> 00:09:39

and we get to have a vacation and we get to shop and we get to see new things. So it's a mix here. Musa alayhis salam when he travels to please Allah azza wa jal? Does he travel for fun or luxury or for vacation or to see something? This is hardship.

00:09:40 --> 00:09:41

This is hardship.

00:09:43 --> 00:09:56

hard when you want to wake up when you sleep, where do you eat? Where do you find your food? away from family and for how long? And how far? We don't know. They speculate

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

the meaning of the two seas where is it?

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

The easy answer is we don't know.

00:10:03 --> 00:10:09

If you want to guess some of the guesses you'll find in the book SR C or they say Morocco

00:10:11 --> 00:10:16

by Punja, Tangier that they cross into Spain

00:10:17 --> 00:10:28

or Armenia in the east, why would say this is useful not to pinpoint the location but it tells you that that possibly could be how long 140 travel

00:10:30 --> 00:10:37

on foot. So remembers. So Allah azza wa jal continues and he says certain novella how much Marburg inhuman sci

00:10:39 --> 00:10:40

fi battery saga.

00:10:41 --> 00:10:48

This is when they reached the meeting of those of the two C's. They forgot about their fish

00:10:49 --> 00:10:52

for the others as Elon will feed battery saga

00:10:53 --> 00:10:53


00:10:54 --> 00:11:07

battery saga, that he swam, he came back to life or it came back to life, and it swam into the sea creating a tunnel like path.

00:11:08 --> 00:11:31

So sort of, I mean, it's like a tunnel. So when the fish fish touch the water, the water around it solidified to create a tunnel, a trace. This is what the setup is. Why is it creating a trace because that's what Musa alayhis salam and his companion Oregon the need to trace it back to reach

00:11:33 --> 00:11:43

so it left a mark. So it came back to life and they say that's a fish that they used to eat from well Allahu Allah more it's a salted fish, but at least it's

00:11:45 --> 00:11:52

harder for them. Amen. Allah says Philomena Jo was finally Fidel who it Nevada and aloha Latina mean Serena Harada masala

00:11:53 --> 00:11:59

so when they pass that point, and they do not know that it is the point

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

and by the way, you shall and he said I'm Joshua was awake, and Musa was asleep. When the fish came back to life.

00:12:11 --> 00:12:12

You just saw it.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:19

He saw it come back to life. And he says, I will not wake Musa. But when he wakes up, I'll let him know.

00:12:20 --> 00:12:22

But when Musa woke up, he forgot.

00:12:24 --> 00:13:01

He forgot. So when Allah says when they passed that point, he said to his servant, bring us our lunch. Latina Minister Serena, ha, the NASA indeed, I've become a we've become tired due to this travel of us of ours. Meaning this letter last leg of our travel, exhausted us really. And it is said it says it Rasul allah sallallahu sallam, he only got tired, when he got past that point. That along the way, he didn't get tired. But when he passed that particular point that he is supposed to

00:13:02 --> 00:13:04

meet will have or add, he got tired.

00:13:05 --> 00:13:07

And they say that there is a benefit.

00:13:08 --> 00:13:16

That is either America, Allah will be angry, and Akali. If Allah commands you to do something, he supports you.

00:13:18 --> 00:13:33

He gives you physical and emotional psychological support to do it. But once he passes, even though he doesn't know, but he passes it, he misses it. Now, that's not Allah support is not there anymore.

00:13:34 --> 00:13:35


00:13:36 --> 00:13:37

You're with me?

00:13:38 --> 00:13:43

So I say this to anybody who says, What if Allah has left me with this? Or that? How can I handle it?

00:13:45 --> 00:14:04

What if Allah takes this away from me, which you really shouldn't engage in these types of thoughts, because they are negative. And they open the door for the whispers of the shofar. But if an in case, what if Allah takes that away from me? What if what happens to them happens to me? Will I be able to take it, I think I'll collapse.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:16

He say, maybe at this particular moment, you can take it. But if Allah afflicts you is something, he supports you so that you can handle it. Right?

00:14:17 --> 00:14:23

So keep that in mind as also an additional lesson from the story.

00:14:24 --> 00:14:28

So his services partner, alright.

00:14:29 --> 00:14:35

Nina says to recode he says, You should see the amazing thing that happened to me.

00:14:36 --> 00:15:00

And my translation is translation of the series. Now word for word, right? So don't tell me what did you bring this from? Right? Because it's a tough scene, because our eight right, indicates that. It's like could you see if you could see what happened to our ad if you could look at me that says the see what had happened to me the amazing thing that happened to me that when we

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

He slept or rested. Next to that rod, I forgot about that fish and only the shaytaan made me forget about him. And he miraculously took it

00:15:13 --> 00:15:27

and became back to life and slamming to the seat. Another benefit that you can take from this woman and send you in the shape on one of Cora only the shape on made me forget about him is that the shaytaan will stand in your path.

00:15:28 --> 00:15:52

And the shaytaan could be responsible for your forgetfulness so here for the forgetfulness of you sha Allah He said because Musa when he asked him to join him he said to him, and it's in the Hadith Hello can live okay we che in India to be Ronneby MB semoga he says our do not charge you with anything, meaning I don't want anything from you. Except for one thing to tell me when it comes back to life.

00:15:54 --> 00:15:58

Karlovac killed after shuffleboard. It says you didn't ask me for much.

00:15:59 --> 00:16:23

Is it Allah? No, this is the only thing I want you to do. But he couldn't tell you that. Allah says it is above everybody's power you can plan but Allah azza wa jal may decide otherwise. Submit to Allah's decision. He did his best but he couldn't and Musa didn't blame right? It had to happen this way. So it had to happen this way.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:29

But the sheer plan could stand in your way and then in the case of fuchsia,

00:16:30 --> 00:16:32

the chiffon could distract him.

00:16:33 --> 00:16:46

Bring this his mind bring that into his mind, so that he would simply forget about it. So forgetfulness could come from the shape plan. So if forgetfulness could come from the shape plan, how do you combat that?

00:16:47 --> 00:16:49

How do you work against it? By doing what?

00:16:51 --> 00:16:56

By remembering from Allah azza wa jal. So if you forget, remember Allah

00:16:58 --> 00:17:03

if you forget, remember Allah azza wa jal right and then you will remember reading that as

00:17:04 --> 00:17:11

so Bucha is salaam aleikum, WA, apostles, they said, This is what we want it so they can

00:17:12 --> 00:17:15

trace back their footsteps.

00:17:16 --> 00:18:05

And Allah azza wa jal, Cicero did abdominal denial, they found a servant of ours that we have given him mercy from ours. And we taught him from us a knowledge, we taught him knowledge that is from us. And it is based on this idea that a lot of scholars, not this, but also the incidents, that a lot of scholars will say that they'll have the rally Salam is a prophet, because they said, We gave him mercy from Us. And also the other incidents, they will he would not have access to such knowledge, simply by ill health, meaning just inspiration that an average individual could receive, he will not have access to such knowledge unless Allah reveals it to him. Right? We'll see what we'll make a

00:18:05 --> 00:18:10

quick comment about that when we reach that story. So that he found out further.

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

And Allah says, what we gave him knowledge from us. And this is what knowledge that Allah gives that you do not acquire.

00:18:20 --> 00:18:36

You do not experience but Allah teaches you. And it's a privilege it when you are taught that knowledge. So it's a special knowledge that the prophets of Allah will be taught. So Musa asked him, he said, Hello, Okada and to Adam, and

00:18:37 --> 00:18:50

he says, can I follow you, and so that you can teach me of the righteous knowledge that you have, so that you can teach me have the knowledge that you have, that will take me to a rushed

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

to be guided.

00:18:54 --> 00:19:01

So first see the Adam of Musa alayhis salam, even though if you're to ask you who's better Musa

00:19:03 --> 00:19:44

Musa samosa is more knowledgeable, and better. But because he wants to learn from me, he says, can I follow you? Would you permit me to follow you so that you can teach me knowledge from what you have been taught, but it's also rushed? Meaning it leads to a rush, so not just teach me anything? No, there's teach me something. But I want that something to take me to a rush. And that should be your objective. If you're learning something, if you're reading a book, if you're listening to a lecture, you could do it simply because it's fascinates you because you're interested in it. And that is a reason to learn. But there's also a reason to learn because this benefits me in the field.

00:19:45 --> 00:19:56

And when you ever you make that your guide, then you will seek the most beneficial of knowledge, and you will leave or downgrade less than official knowledge.

00:19:57 --> 00:19:59

So prioritize the most beneficial

00:20:00 --> 00:20:02

Based on what Musa alayhis salam said,

00:20:03 --> 00:20:20

and the Sunnah tells us that era cinema when he found a huddle huddle was lying down on his back. He had a cloth or something like a blanket that had covered his entire body and he was lying on his bed. Jose said a sudden were a couple of others said.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:28

Where do you find Sudan in this land? Where do you find such a grinning in this land? Who are you?

00:20:30 --> 00:20:57

He says, Musa, he says most of the Nusra Edward brought his view. He says, I came here so that you would teach me he says, Isn't this enough that you have a Torah and whatever Allah had taught you? He said, I want to learn from you. He says, I have knowledge that I know that you do not know and you have knowledge that you know that I do not know. But Musa insisted. But the take also from that encounter, is that how they saw Musa but he didn't know him?

00:20:58 --> 00:21:09

Right? Because some people think that if you are ready, you know everything. Right? But if I'm aware, if I see you not only do I know your name, I know everything about you.

00:21:10 --> 00:21:24

So how there is the highest when it comes to the LDR, right? Or he's a prophet. And Musa alayhis salam is a prophet if a when he was going to recognize anyone, it would be other recognizing them so but he said, Who are you?

00:21:25 --> 00:21:33

Right? So it doesn't mean that you if you are a what do you have Allah as a surgeon or a prophet of Allah, that you have access to knowledge your human being?

00:21:34 --> 00:21:41

So how do you set what you cannot be patient with me? And how can you be patient with something that you have no full knowledge of?

00:21:42 --> 00:21:48

Meaning 100 is saying when it's impossible that you be patient with me, even that is your Musa.

00:21:50 --> 00:21:55

And once you when you read this story to understand that Musa alayhis salam is from all

00:21:56 --> 00:22:23

of the people of highest determination and virtue among the messengers of Allah azza wa jal, he's the one who with the help of Allah stood up to Pharaoh and brought him down with Allah has helped. So you cannot question was his patience, his other top level of patience? And yet he said, what you can be patient with this? Why? Because you see what you cannot understand. How can you be patient with that, but Musa LA is Allah?

00:22:24 --> 00:22:46

He said, you will find me insha Allah patient, and I will not disobey you. So how they're said, if you're going to follow me, and this is just for the sake of time, simply translating. If you're going to follow me that asked me about nothing that you will say, don't object to it, don't comment until I'd be the one who mentioned it do. So if you see something you don't understand, leave it

00:22:48 --> 00:22:48

to the

00:22:50 --> 00:23:10

and this is to test his patience and to teach him and us something about Allah's knowledge. Right. So from fella cars, so they've set forth the what, and they boarded the ship, and they gave, they'll have

00:23:11 --> 00:23:41

a free ride, just because we recognize them as a good man. He says, Okay, you're, it's free for up for you. So they gave him the owners of that ship or boat, they gave him a ride from one shore to the other from one bank to the other. And while he's on it, he damages the side of the ship by removing one of its flanks. Musa sees this and he says what he says, Did you damage it so that you would cause its people to drown? Dominica Hala, indeed you've done something evil.

00:23:42 --> 00:24:04

So how that reminded him? Did I not tell you that you will not be able to duration with me. So most early Saddam said, he says don't overburden me and hold me responsible because I forgot. Okay, don't hold me responsible, because I forgot and don't overburden meaning like overlook this place. Right?

00:24:05 --> 00:24:09

So, they continue to work.

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

It says

00:24:13 --> 00:24:27

he says then when they he met a young boy, he killed them. This gives you hear a little bit more. They come upon a village or a city. They find some kids playing this is a whole

00:24:28 --> 00:24:32

you can think that he is nine or 10 something like that he is not

00:24:34 --> 00:24:38

really not reached adulthood puberty. Right.

00:24:39 --> 00:24:45

And he's playing with other kids and they said he was beautiful, handsome. So they cute

00:24:46 --> 00:24:53

play because without introduction goes to him faster. So he likes his head out of his body.

00:24:54 --> 00:24:57

Okay, now I want you to imagine that scene.

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

And if you would be able to do

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

Be patient. If you see that

00:25:04 --> 00:25:22

the shock of it because there's no introduction, the shock of it to a kid. That's why he said after 10 lessons can be relentless. You've killed a pure soul without a deserving death. He didn't do anything to deserve it indeed, you've come to you've done something that is heinous. So how

00:25:23 --> 00:25:54

did I not tell you? There's an addition here have you? Did I not tell Allama Honda? Did I not tell you that you're not going to be able to patient with me? He said, Musa if I asked you about something after this, they don't keep my company Indeed. Indeed. I have no excuse anymore. But Bella, I mean, the duniya was wrong. i You've reached the limit of any excuses I could offer you that is if the third one fails. The third one is the end

00:25:55 --> 00:26:06

pilot from palapa. So they said for La Jolla team, they came to a Korea Korea could be a city or a village and the assets people for food

00:26:07 --> 00:26:10

forever, arguably for whom they refuse to give them food.

00:26:12 --> 00:26:15

Now there's a benefit here, which is what

00:26:16 --> 00:26:18

the first is, why did they ask for food?

00:26:20 --> 00:26:22

Because they had a lot of it.

00:26:23 --> 00:26:32

They had none. So they had to eat. The you preach the level where most of the color they had to eat, meaning they had no food.

00:26:33 --> 00:27:09

So I want you to think about it that the two most honorable people on the face of this earth at that moment, were poor enough that they did not have enough food that they had to ask people for it. Just so you know, that the Dunya doesn't mean anything for Allah searched. Otherwise, these would be kings. So in the sight of Allah, the dunya is nothing. The best of people had nothing with them. That's one second, some people think because story of 100 always is mixed with Wilaya. And a well he somehow could bring out food out of nowhere.

00:27:10 --> 00:27:20

Right? Oh, you want food as a Just out of nowhere out of thin air here is food here. If a hacker could do this, he could not ask.

00:27:22 --> 00:27:36

If he had the ability to do this, he would not be allowed to ask. But he asked because he had no ability to just bring out food out of nowhere. And Allah gives no person that ability. Right?

00:27:37 --> 00:28:07

So they asked for people to host them and it's an obligation on you know, a city to host its guests. The but they refused because they were stingy and unwelcoming. So they will not greet people. That's the type of people living in that city. foetida Theodora. You read a young convert, he found a wall that wanted to collapse. And he straightened it and he fixed it. It says in the Hadith, he simply wiped over it and it came back

00:28:08 --> 00:28:48

standing that says that's all that it needed from him. So that's miraculous, but that's in the Sunnah. Now Musa says if you wish, we could have asked for a payment in return because they refused. At least we could have used that money to eat. So more how that led tsunami says that sits between us that sits between us based on what Moses said that is the third thing happens. Then we have to stop these as this is in between us. Let me tell you about what you couldn't be patient with. And Rasul allah sallallahu wasallam said in the Hadith, he says, We wish that Musa alayhis salam would have been patient, he indeed would have been so he would have seen wonders.

00:28:49 --> 00:28:57

If more Musa was patient, more patient, he would have seen wonders in his journey with

00:28:58 --> 00:28:59


00:29:00 --> 00:29:21

called Alayhis Salam, and I'm saying at least and I'm based on the assumption that he is a prophet of Allah azza wa jal. And so he says, As for that ship it belongs to for people who used to use it for income, and there's a king that confiscates illegally every ship that he sees, so I wanted to damage it, so that he would leave it alone.

00:29:23 --> 00:29:34

Most of us could not have known this. But once you know this, you understand that I'll have committed the lesser evil, to prevent the bigger evil.

00:29:36 --> 00:29:40

And in that what looks like aggression is mercy.

00:29:41 --> 00:29:59

Who sees the difference in perspective based on how much you know? Right? That's just present knowledge or present close near future knowledge. But if you know it, your perspective will be 100% different. But that is the the benefits are very good.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:09

religious knowledge will enhance will allow you to see things that others cannot.

00:30:10 --> 00:30:15

So this this is this is the first one. And as for that young boy

00:30:16 --> 00:30:44

so he says his parents were believers. And he says we were afraid that he will overburden them with rebellion and disbelief, since the Sunnah. In the Hadith, the Prophet sallahu wa salam said that that boy will grow up to be a disbeliever. And this overpower meant that the Quran talks about that either he will be such a pain, there will be so much trouble for his parents or that his disbelief will cause their disbelief.

00:30:45 --> 00:31:04

Because that could happen in the family. As and as parents influence their children. Sometimes the children influence their parents so that they he when he grows up as a disbeliever, he could cause the disbelief of his parents. So again, what looks like aggression? Is what

00:31:05 --> 00:31:19

right man protection for the believing parents, who may not see or not know that losing the child is a gift from Allah azza wa jal, but Allah azza wa jal sends them that gift anyway.

00:31:20 --> 00:31:26

So here, if you don't have access to the liver knows, what should you do.

00:31:28 --> 00:31:30

You should trust Allah as of

00:31:31 --> 00:31:54

right, trust, he has done this for a reason. I do not know it. But Allah knows it. But I base it on the fact of a story like this. And the fact that Allah has always acts in the best of ways and with the greatest of wisdom. There's always a reason of why he does what he does. So you can't stop and blame

00:31:56 --> 00:32:10

but rather trust and believe and praise Allah subhanaw taala for it. And this is the incident that a lot of scholars will say that he needed to be a prophet for him to have done that. How do you know that such a kid will grow up to be

00:32:12 --> 00:32:13

a disbeliever?

00:32:14 --> 00:32:38

Based on an impression, based on a feeling that you had even if you're a what do you have Allah zodion And you have this overwhelming sensation, this person will grow to be a disbeliever This is not certain knowledge, and is not protected knowledge. Just like a dream, right? If you see a dream, are all your dreams protected? Some from Allah azza wa jal, some are from home,

00:32:39 --> 00:32:50

the nervous and some from the shaper so dreams are not protected. And when you Allah as if he gets what we call it ketchup, okay, they are quality and this is not

00:32:52 --> 00:33:07

predicted an Intel only Allah's revelation this prophets is that's why they see. So he said, We want Allah azza wa jal to replace them with another child, who will be kinder to them, and will have Iman

00:33:09 --> 00:33:18

and the third one, he says, As for that wall, it belong to two orphans in the city, and their father was righteous, and he left that

00:33:20 --> 00:33:32

treasure, there's a treasure underneath it underneath that wall. And it belonged to those orphans and their father was righteous. So Allah wanted them to reach maturity and extract their own treasure.

00:33:33 --> 00:33:58

So Allah azza wa jal wanted to save that for them to take care of those two Earth orphans, in a city that was greedy and stingy. It was required to be exposed, they will take it and leave nothing for them. So Allah azza wa jal wanted that to save for them because they are orphans, and they are in need. And also because of the very important fact, which is that a woman was what

00:33:59 --> 00:34:06

slightly had their father was righteous. So the righteousness of the Father extended to a protection to the children.

00:34:07 --> 00:34:26

So if someone anyone has children, and by the way, you have to do your best to raise them. But in that gap where you say, I've done all that I can but what if I die? And after my death, or when I'm not there and and and who takes care of them?

00:34:28 --> 00:34:34

Are your righteousness if you are righteous and pleasing to Allah azza wa jal could extend to that you do.

00:34:35 --> 00:34:36

So this man is dead.

00:34:38 --> 00:34:59

This man has no one who knows about this treasure except Allah azza wa jal, but he sends Musa and he says, and he says, You do this for them? So Allah azza wa jal, if he wants to take care of your children, or anything else that you're worried about, he can send people to take care of it. I'm not saying just rely on that. No, you have to do your best. That's what the what the man did.

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

He didn't bury the treasure right?

00:35:02 --> 00:35:49

But you do your best but Allah azza wa jal takes care of that gap of where you can't anymore. Allah bridges, right? So, at the end he says waterfowl to an embryo he says I did not do this on my own, based on my own judgment delicata widow madam pasta Allah as of right, this is the interpretation of what you could not be patient with. After the explanation of a level it's easy to see, and easy to understand. But Allah Allah azza wa jal wants to do here among the many things that Allah Allah wants to teach us is when you ever you read the surah is to continuously trust Allah, Allah azza wa jal throughout what you face in life, and that Allah azza wa jal sometimes will give you insights

00:35:49 --> 00:36:03

and wisdom to be able to understand what is happening to you. And sometimes, and maybe for some of us, in critical moments, he will not give you much, and you will stand bewildered what is happening and why it's happening and whoa, me or it may.

00:36:05 --> 00:36:07

But Allah says it doesn't want you to panic.

00:36:08 --> 00:36:55

And he wants you to commit to settle down and to trust him. subhanho wa Taala and realize that there's always a plan. And if you are righteous, there's always an exit. And if there's righteousness, there's always ease. And there's always always a reason from him. subpanel when Dad, if you can see it now. You'll see it a week from now, or a month from now or a year from now, or when you meet Allah azza wa jal, but at one point you will see it, but then trust him Subhanahu wa Taala so that he will be able to reap the benefits of those tests. And that is the difference between those who believe in the unseen and believing Allah has written and trust Him and those who

00:36:55 --> 00:36:57

say I will not follow until I understand.

00:36:58 --> 00:37:08

And I will not follow until all the details are available. This is not trust, trusting Allah azza wa jal once you decide that Allah should be trusted.

00:37:09 --> 00:37:58

Okay, if you're not sure about this visual, should you trust Allah or not be sure, but once you decide that he should be trusted, then you're going to trust him subhanho wa Taala and he will test that trust and he will test that Iman to see how much of it do you have and if you do actually believe your email will skyrocket. Your email will be elevated will reach heights it could not without the tests of Allah subhanho wa taala. So when you are reading this story, think about these lessons and about any other lesson that jumps out at you as you are reading the story. So that our reading of Surah Tikka becomes a reading in sha Allah with the board with understanding and with the

00:37:58 --> 00:38:18

benefit, of course we want the baraka absorptive gas, but also you will have an additional and added raka as you learn from it, as you read it. So this is insha Allah as a lot of but alanine or hamara, honey to bless us all and make us of those who have patients in this life.
