Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Kareem while early he was Sofie Jemaine
my brothers and sisters in Islam. Welcome back.
Today in sha Allah. I'm going to go back a little bit to the end of the story of Yusuf Ali his Salaam and then continue from there. Last week we spoke about or the week before we spoke about the Prophet au Valley, he said, and the Prophet Zulu Kiffin and Prophet than noon alayhi wa sallam.
Today insha Allah I'm going to talk about Prophet Shohei Alayhis Salam followed by Prophet Musa alayhis salam.
Now the prophet shall aid Alayhis Salam
is set to be either after Musa alayhis salam
or before more Salah has Sudan in between.
Zulu in between Yun Salah Salem and Musa
I rest on the opinion that he was approximately at the time of more Salah Salem or just before some narrations but they're not reliable say that it was possibly even he lived into the time of Musa alayhis salam and that Messiah said I met him but I don't think that's reliable.
is one of the four Arabic prophets.
The error profits are solid who would shy and Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is married Allah His Sudan was not an Arab but he learned the Arabic language and became among the Arabs and married them from the Arabs and from whom most of the Middle Eastern people and the Hejaz, the Arabian Peninsula people came from
the original Arabs a very dark you'd think they're actually African.
The original Arabs
so my brothers and sisters in Islam, Mohamed Salah Salem was an Eric from SMA that Eastern Shore high valleys Sudan was an Arab
but he was from the original Arabs.
Show I gotta use Sudan
is mentioned in the Quran in more than 19 places.
And his story is very significant.
Shy Bala is Salam was sent to people in a place called Meridian
in the Torah, and in the Bible, it's called Midian.
The Midianites lived somewhere in the northwest of the Arabian peninsula of Saudi Arabia, and it's surrounded by three countries of today. If you want to pinpoint them for today, they were
in the edge southwest of Saudi Arabia, bordered by Jordan,
West, no self Palestine,
and also Egypt.
Medan is close to Egypt, because today you'll see the story of Musa alayhis salam, he also went to Medion
Shanghai ballet, his Salah
was from the people of Medina, because Allah says we're Isla mediana Aha, I'm sure either and to Madeon their brother shy. We sent him to them. Brother doesn't mean that he was
they were all his brothers and sisters, his siblings in the Arabic language when you say someone is the brother of someone either means by blood, or brother in humanity, or by relationship or his from the same tribe. He was from the people of Medina. So Allah called him
is there brother. Now some fucka Mara here for us.
Allah is acknowledging in the Quran and telling us that the people of Medina and were polytheists they worship idols. They worship many different idols.
Although they claimed that they were under proper religion. They claimed that they were real Muslims actually on the religion of Prophet Abraham Abraham had he said that because they were from his descendants.
But they made partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala and claimed to be on the right path. Now since they are kuffaar, Allah subhanaw taala still calls Shai their brother.
The question is, are we allowed to
sometimes call ourselves a brother or a sister of non Muslims?
The answer is yes.
The difference between what Allah has forbidden
in associating yourself with non Muslim, and what he allows you is to associate yourselves with non Muslims based on religion.
You need to share with them their religion and they share with yours and you are their brother in partnership of their religion and they are brothers and sisters in partnership of religion. So we cannot say we are brothers and sisters in religion. But you can say we are brothers and sisters in humanity, in tribe, in nation. You were born from them, for example, in Russia has relatives
and all the verses of the Quran that talk about weather and Baroque which means allegiance and bearing innocence from them,
is all related to Deen. It's always in the context of the in any area in the Quran. Anyone fit dealing in the religion. As for other things we are allowed to associate with them on worldly matters. business matters, sometimes as a relationship. For example, we can marry from the Jews and Christian women, people of the book.
So my brothers and sisters in Islam, it's an it's an interesting point that the scholars spoke about the focal hub jurisprudence, scholars talked about short as being their brother, and there are other passages in the Quran like that. So what you learned at the end, for him sure, either. And to me at the end, we sent them their brother in Shanghai. And he said to them while he called me, he said, Oh my people.
And then the same message comes along like all the other prophets don't worship any other Lord, but Allah alone. Why do you worship several Gods when Allah is your Creator?
And not only that the people of Shanghai had a, for the first time a crime that has not yet been mentioned in the Quran for other people before the people of Medina and what did they do?
They actually were extortionists. They extorted people for their money. They were highway robbers and they charged taxes inland, which was not theirs. And anyone who went on the highway, which is a public place, they used to take money from people by force, or they would rob them.
Also, they used to deal in unfair dealings. Unfair dealings, if they sold, they wouldn't do fair trade.
They take more than what they deserved, or they would pay less than what it deserved. Deliberately, they would trick buyers and sellers unfair trade, unfair business, extortion and robbery and fraud.
This is what the people of Meridian were known for in the Quran.
So not only did Allah send him because of the polyphony ism he sent them also because of
this corruption, corruption, economic corruption.
And Allah does not take these matters lightly.
Riba for example usury
the correct word is usury for interest. It's not really interest. It's usury
is a major sin in Islam.
Because it is unfair trade.
My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, sure I Balasana was sent to them because of that.
And in the Quran, he mentioned that a lot, what I did what he advised them, and one of the biggest debates between a prophet and his people happened. The Quran is full of this debate in detail. Some of the examples of this debate were
that they considered themselves educated, technologically advanced,
very intelligent, and they consider themselves on the right path. So they said to show I, yeah, shall I, shall I?
We used to look at you as always, man.
What are you saying to us?
Look at us, we are on the right path. You're the one who is deluded. And he will return back to them and use other arguments.
One of the things he would say to them is
why would I want to sit here debating my people and as you can see, I have no nothing in return. I'm not asking you for wealth or accommodation, or status or position or fame, fortune nothing.
I also have lived with you all my life. You know me and I know you
don't accuse me of things.
Now when he debated that, like every other prophet is an excellent debater an excellent because they have good truth reasoning.
They started to reply, ridiculing and mocking his worship. So they started talking
About his worship, saying ASALA took Moroccan and natural Kumbhakarna. Yeah. Luna?
Is your prayers, this religion of yours? Is this commanding you to tell us to leave and abandoned what our forefathers is to abandon.
Wala, we see You're nothing but a man gone crazy. You're deluded. I started mocking Him with all these ways, these are same debates that happened today in the world. There is nothing new about what the people of Shanghai used to do and say and what we say and do today in in the 21st century, actually, the people are tribal, so similar to the people of today.
And they also took pride in science,
But a civilization is not to take pride because of how technologically advanced it is.
That doesn't mean anything.
What a civilization should take pride on proper, good, truthful civilization. A glorious and venerable civilization
is one who operates on justice, high values, and high morals. Most important is justice. These people have none of that. So all the technology meant nothing. You can see actually in,
in northwest of Saudi Arabia, they still have their homes. They're similar to the people of Saleh and
these the carve homes in their mountains. They inherited that technology from their forefathers you can see the secret palaces and caves can't be mountain so they hide Han had high advanced technology and equipment
compared to their time.
They prided themselves as being on the truth.
Shai valet his salon, tried endlessly with them.
Until finally, they came with all the other people came towards their profits, they challenged him 15 out DeMatha I don't why don't you bring about what you are promising us a punishment and torture from your Lord?
We're on the truth. What's going to happen to us? It's like today we say, if you don't believe in God, you'll say well, all this rubbish talk and all this nonsense. All this, you guys are off with the fairies.
So there's not a proper argument anyway.
Don't believe all this stuff. This is exactly what the people have showed you. This is the same arguments they used to tell him very modern arguments.
So really, when we hear about
that we are more advanced. Now humanity has gone forward?
Honestly, we haven't. Not really for those who really study it.
I don't want to go into too much detail. But with our technological advancement, we are causing more corruption, more deaths, more disunity, more injustice, killing the environment,
killing the atmosphere.
The wealth is all in one place. A small percentage of the people of the world have the wealth the rest of them in poverty,
living on not more than 40 cents a day. Third World countries are the majority of the world.
The money is shared among a bunch of people who can fit inside of a normal passenger plane.
Where is the justice and the equality here? Where is the advancement of human civilization? There is nothing different than them and us today, really, except the buildings and technology that we have. Brothers and Sisters in Islam.
When they said this to show Hi, Allah Subhana Allah said for hochkar Li him we'll call
it was justifiably, their choice to suffer the consequences as a result of their own action, and almost as one model and now I can count on for something else in the morning. They did not we did not oppress them they oppressed themselves just like the people before them.
And so my brothers and sisters, they challenged him with he goes, they said to him, bring upon us all these different types of torches and different punishments. Bring upon us the the tornadoes and being as fun as the earthquakes and the fire and whatever you're talking about. Subhan Allah Allah subhana wa Taala gave them exactly what they asked for. Not one or two types of punishments, but all sorts and colors of punishments as they requested.
When Allah subhanaw taala takes up people he says in the Quran, we either have no legal Korea
when we want or see that the destruction of a people is going to happen when we want to do that, a madman with raffia first of all,
we send messengers upon messengers to them, we send truths upon
truth to them, we send all this clarity to them until it is as clear as the sun. And then they corrupt deliberately after knowing
for the Myrna hatted mirror, and then we completely obliterate it. These were the people of before Mohamed Salah waves.
And these people were the last of all the prophets whose people were destroyed, by the way, they were the last meridian.
And when Allah knows that people have no more benefit on Earth, and there is no more hope, and then he takes them back to him.
He hasn't really destroyed them. Really, all he's done is from where he brought them he has taken them back. Then we say in Manila or in LA erosion from Allah, we came to Him we shall return. And Allah says, put it on my knowledge. At the end of the day, everything upon this earth is going to perish. The universe in the earth is going to be destroyed or perish. Now Allah says, We have covered Europe because in January when Iraq and in the Face of your Lord will stay, your Lord will stay and nothing else.
couldn't learn Harlequin indovirtue and everything will be destroyed except Allah. And then Allah brings us all back on a day of judgment. So my brothers and sisters, the people love Shall I, therefore, the punishment of Allah in Allah's wisdom and justice Shai valet Salah was saved with his family and a few of the people who followed him, and he destroyed them. Allah mentioned different types of punishments, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, fire upon them that came out of the volcanoes, dust.
And what happened to them was that they actually couldn't get out of their homes in time. The earthquakes and everything that happened, made them stuck inside their homes overnight. And they couldn't even make it out of their own homes. They were buried inside their homes, buried and burned. Some of them swallowed by the Earth gone.
And the Lord tells us about the story saying go past, can you see any more anything left of them, take example of them to all the other people,
my brothers and sisters in Islam. And so the story of shy although brief, it has many meanings. And I advise you to get into the Quran and read about my dad in and lead the people of Medina and the people of Shipe. They were also called as herbal Aika, by the way as herbal Aiko, which means the people of the wood, the people of the tree, alayka means a tree. And plural, if you want to it's the woods can also mean acre acre means woods or forest, but it also can mean one tree. And what they used to do was that they used to believe, and I want you to listen to this very carefully. They used to believe that wood trees, forests or trees had special significance spiritually. They believe that
souls of the ancestors resided in them, and that they could get blessings from these trees. They used to hang their utensils, their weaponry, their clothing, sometimes whatever they had to seek lessons from these trees, in what resides within them. spirits that reside within them. They believe they want God. But they may partners with Allah. And so they lost their way. And I think this is one of the places where universally people believe in knocking on wood, when they are jealous of something or when you have something nice and you want to talk about it and then you fear that people will give you the jinx die or something like that. So knock on wood, not only Muslims do,
people in all walks of life do that. But it has no nothing in our religion, nothing in Islam or even in Christianity or even Judaism.
But people made it up along the way knock on wood, because they believe it's something special about amazing though how advanced we are supposed to be today. And apparently we've evolved into a smarter being. Yet we still believe
in superstitious things. Some people still believe in the star signs. If you're born in a particular month, it means that you're like this or you're like that.
So my brother and sisters in Islam, such were the people before and nothing really has changed today except their language and the things we use a little bit different. That's about it the clothes we were a little bit different. That's all
we live in a world where you can be anything you want.
Male, female, half none. Something else we don't know what it is.
Table chair, camera,
non existent. All good.
Because we've evolved they say
my brothers and sisters in Islam. I'm only joking. Now from shore I've Alayhis Salam. We go now on backwards a little bit to the time of use of allihies Center.
Now I'm not going to talk about use of I certainly have four lectures about it.
But I need to go backwards a little bit to go for
over so that we can understand the story and for
a few lessons back, we finished off with use of Alayhis Salam being almost like the king of Egypt
and the Israelites, the Israelites, meaning the children have jacobellis Sarah, and he had 12 sons. They are the anyone who was born with them were then called historically till today, the children of Israel, mainly the Jews of today
that most of them went from Palestine,
to Egypt, and they live in
the family of use of Isola him and his brothers and people started to migrate and started to live in Egypt. They were called the Israelites.
These Israelites kept on migrating and
regenerating and giving birth until
reproducing until they became about 600,000 to 700,000 people, Israelites over a over a course of about 100 years after the use of Ali Salaam
and the original
Pharaoh was a Coptic, the cops they called the Egyptian Copts, the Pharaoh himself, gave the high position of authority to use of Ali's center and it is said we're not sure that the Pharaoh at that time of use of a sudden his name was Walid al Walid.
Well, it's not just the Islamic name. Okay, I'll when it. He was the fair and it was said that he converted to Islam. When we say Islam, we say that all the prophets
believed in the same message from God, which is the meaning of Muslim, submit and surrender to the message of God, except that you are a Muslim.
Iran has come to the low Muslims are not named after a man or a woman or a tribe, or a place or an event.
You find I think every other religion is named after a place or an event or someone or a tribe. We are not going back to anything the word Muslim means is a verb and a noun. Submit surrender, accept follow. So anything that submits surrenders, accepts and follows is called a Muslim. By that definition, the sun is a Muslim the moon is a Muslim, the baby that is born as a Muslim. That's why sometimes we use the word when someone converts to Islam we'd like to use the word revert both of them are correct, convert or revert.
But sometimes we like to say revert, means you turn back to the way you were born Muslim. We say Hey, Sally salaam was Muslim Musa was Muslim US Vice and was not all of them are a Muslim, all Muslims.
So the Pharaoh converted to Islam apparently, and they followed righteousness. And then Yusuf Ali Salam took over the authority, not as Pharaoh but as the authority. So the Pharaoh hardly had any power after that.
No, Yusuf Ali salaam died. And from him can children from his brother's can children as well.
As time went on,
the people of Egypt, the Copts, the pharaohs, started to associate themselves with pride again.
And so nationalism crept back in
the cops returned to become a nationalistic
When nationalism start to creep in, the first people they looked at was whoever was not part of the nation.
Fair of the pharaoh pride started to creep in the oldest trick in the book for the police to shape up, he will never leave us.
Let's go pick it out our desires, you are the best. And he is the master because he's the master of pride, at least remember, he didn't bow down to Adam.
So the pharaohs returned to them, and so did their people. And they started looking at the Israelites, they are not from our blood, they are not like our nation, they are not of our forefathers, who the hell are these people go back to where you came from.
And then what happened?
The first thing they did, the courts was that they started to think of ways to take them the Israelites out of the political positions and positions of power and economy, wealth, and power, status, reputation, they want to break all of that first.
And so what happened was that they started to extort them.
And somehow they started to take away their land. The land went back to the cops, and then the crops the produce of their crops went to the cops. Any home or property was taken from the Israelites by force and given to the cops. Anyone who shared the blood of the Coptics they're the ones
The courts had to own the land, their produce and their homes. And so the Israelites began to become subjugated and oppressed right up to about nearly 100 to 120 years after that came the real pharaoh that the Quran talks about. We don't know his real name some say he was Ramses or Ramses the second I don't know what all these people these ideas we don't know. We don't know which Pharaoh it is. And in fact, the Quran and the Sunnah does not mention his name
is not worthy of his mentioned
Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam told us that he is the worst
creature of Allah, He is the worst, create him he is the worst person on earth, in all of history. Pharaoh in every sense of the word.
So Allah calls him crown, but the word Quran is not a name. That's not his name. It's a title.
You know, every country has a title
of their kings.
The king of Egypt is called a fairer.
And so came this particular Pharaoh, who was a tyrant
and just full of pride.
He called himself the God and the Lord of Egypt.
People had to worship him beside God. He believed in God.
But He believed that he is another type of God.
He believed he was another type of God. In the Quran, Pharaoh used to talk about himself, to the people say, Man, I live to recommend Allah and really, I did not know any other God that you should worship beside me.
Look at the Nile River as it flows beneath my control and your plantation and everything else and your livelihood. He's not saying there's no God. He's saying he's another God. And in Egypt, he is the God that has to be worshipped, because in Egypt, he is the one who provides them. Therefore he deserves their worship. He deserves their worship in economically, politically, socially,
in their lives. As for at home, he allowed them to worship whoever they want to worship inside their home.
So we separated
and private affairs separate. Your religion has no place in my kingdom, and my state and my politics are in the way I run the country. No police, just like today brothers and sisters, secularism kind of except that he called himself a god. See the word God, there's anything that's worshipped. You can call it any other name, if you like.
But Pharaoh called himself that in the outside world, I make laws. I decide on the laws. If I want you to vote, I'll tell you to vote.
I say what goes I say what comes politics is mine. The Lord is mine. Economy is mine. Social interactions, business, it's all made. Therefore you have to worship me in all that area. Privately commercial, whenever God you can bury your head down on the ground, whatever you want. That's none of my business, but then bring it out into the outside world. That's how fair it was.
Now, frown, Pharaoh, split the people into a hierarchical system.
Like a pyramid. Exactly. The pyramids came from the nobles right on top, and the peasants right at the bottom. The peasants happen to be who the Israelites. Allah says this in the Quran
that he subjugated the Israelites
and made the people uneven.
And he made them slaves. And he made them the weakest.
They weren't allowed to live.
The basic livelihood as everyone else as every other human, there was subhuman to him. They were not allowed to work and get paid for the employment. They were not allowed to be in paid employment. They were only allowed to be slaves and serving and the least they got was just a meal or two in a day just to keep them surviving.
Their lives were worthless, it meant nothing.
They weren't allowed to voice their opinion. They certainly had no place in the government, in wealth in how to run the country, in anything whatsoever.
If it wasn't that they needed food, to keep working for him and to work for the cops, he wouldn't even give them food.
And so they were subjugated in every sense of the word.
Now the story of Musa alayhis salam is one of those prophets whom we share very
He strongly together with the Jews. And the story is quite similar more so with the Jews than with the Christians.
And the first part of his life is almost identical to our belief. But after that, a lot of it changes. We go by the Quranic words, and Subhan Allah when you research about the story of Musa alayhis salam, it is so tiring to put it and piece it all together, then walk us through and and historians, the commentators of the Quran, our scholars of the past Subhanallah they scattered his story everywhere.
And a lot of Israelite traditions come in the Bible, the Torah, the ancient scribes, lots of that comes into the picture. It's very difficult to sift through.
And I've been doing it for years to try and get it all together to plan on and try to sift that so that under the Quranic stuff and the Islamic information is there with reference to some of these relic traditions. Musa alayhis salam
was sent to the people of the cops and to free the subjugated and oppressed Israelites
and his his story,
alayhis salam, he is the son of Imran
the Son of God half
direct descendants of the Prophet Jacoba Alayhis Salam, the grandson of Ibrahim Ali salah, all the way down that line.
Musa alayhis salam is considered one of Allah Azzam all as a means there are five most important prophets of all the prophets and one of them is more Sally said they are no Ibrahim Musa, Asa, Jesus Christ, and Muhammad peace be upon them all. All the last at least they struggled the most with their people. And they strived and committed the most
and suffered the most. One of them most Ali's seem extremely important prophet and messenger.
Musa alayhis salam was also mentioned in more than 50 soldiers in more than 36 places
in the Quran
frown had a right hand man his name was hair man.
Interestingly enough hair man is not mentioned in the Bible or the Torah. They have no mention of him and only in the Quran, Allah mentions him and we go to Quran says, because that's authentic.
Hair man was the right hand man of Musa and he helped Musa raise the right hand man of Pharaoh and I'm sorry. And he helped him in subjugating the people and working against Musa later on.
He rolled them with an iron fist, tyrant ruler, most powerful in the world, in his time, and probably in all of history.
And you know what his people were the most technologically advanced even till today as you know, the pyramids. And that technology is still a wonder of the world till today even to scientists and archaeologists.
So they were amazing people of technological advancement.
But, as I said, civilization is based on justice, equality, morals, ethics and values.
Musa alayhis salam received the book, the Torah, one of the four books mentioned in the Quran that Allah told us to believe in
the Torah is called the Old Testament.
And the Injeel, sent to mu isolates and and it's called the New Testament, the zams Zaboo, was the book set down on their wood on a sinner. And the Quran is the final of them all.
Muslims believe that the Torah is corrupted today, and that they don't have the original writings. They have early transcripts, manuscripts, sorry. And these manuscripts date almost at the time of Musa alayhis salam, but not good enough.
Their scholars think that they have the right data, but they don't. And the Quran tells us the Quran has been sent down in order to confirm what was with you before the Quran, came down to confirm the original NGO Torah zams all the scriptures that was sent on top of province before but now in truth was some additional information.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says the story of Musa alayhis salam in Surah can cause sauce the story of the chapter called stories. Allah says da seem mean three letters, we don't know the meaning of them.
Not to do Alikum and never mo Safira I wanna Bill Hockley likoni You
sorry Tilka yeah to Kitab mo been, these are the verses of clear of the Clear Book.
We recount to you with truth, some parts of the story of Moses and Pharaoh for the benefit of those who believe.
What does it mean for those who believe? In other words, this story and this advice that I'm going to give you
is for those who believe me and believe in it, as for those who don't believe it'll don't, won't benefit them anything. So Allah is saying, I'm talking to the believers about the story of Moses at least because many will rejected.
Allah says many things of miracles in there that a normal human and if it wasn't for Allah's intervention, Musa Sena would have never existed.
Historian my brothers sisters in many sort of some of the sources are sort of Bukhara Olara Jonas who would
straw suit Marian, sort of thorough me noon Assura UNIMIN Alenka boo me know me know, so to suffer of a bihon that yet and as he had many suitors of Musa alayhis salam over and over.
Then Allah says, in Surah, alguna, Allah fill of the vagina, Allah, Allah Shiva, indeed, pero transgressed in the land, and divided its people into sections.
You stopped a photo if at a minimum, you know that before Abner home, Maya Stephanie in his home, in the whole canon, I mean, and we've seen
one group of them he humiliated and slew their sons killed their sons, and spared their daughters. Truly, He was among the Mischief Makers.
thought so low of the Israelites that he wanted to do an ethnic cleansing.
Ethnic cleansing still happens today with tyrants. It happened in Rwanda doesn't have to be muslims in Rwanda, ethnic cleansing
in Kashmir, an ethnic cleansing now happening
And ethnic cleansing tried to happen.
You think about it in Burma,
ethnic cleansing is have happened.
And Frauen wanted to do an ethnic cleansing.
So one day, he said, we are going to kill every newborn
son, every baby son of the Israelites,
because he doesn't want them to grow and have any power or status. As for the girls who said leave their gills because then the cops will marry from their gills, and they will produce our own bloodline because the bloodline comes from the father's side.
So he kept their women and tried and started to kill their sons.
the women of the Israelites tried to hide their newborn sons, but with no avail.
But Allah subhanho wa Taala also was plotting just like Pharaoh was plotting. Now there's a story that says that heroes are a dream that a son is going to grow up from Israel and destroy his kingdom. This story, my dear brothers and sisters is not mentioned neither in the Bible, not in the Quran, or in our sunnah. So, they are Israelite traditions, but they're not mentioned
in our sources.
It's very simple. He wanted to do an ethnic cleansing and so we chose to kill their boys and leave their girls.
So they the cops can reproduce.
Allah says in the Quran
enough era owner either fill out,
indeed Pharaoh transgressed in the land. Isla means not only did he transgress, but he thought of himself as a god. He thought that he is above everything and everyone, and he became the tyrant. And then Allah says, and so we wanted to get rid of the tyrants and let the weak inherit the land and receive authority over the strong over the oppressors.
As the children or the Israelite women started to hide their children,
they came the mother of Musa
she had already had a son and a daughter before Musa and before the law of round came out to kill them.
Her name his daughter, sister of Musa, she was Maryam.
And his brother was
on heroin was older than Musa answer was Maryam. We don't know how old Maria Maria Maria was, but in the Talmud, it's an in the Bible that says she was about 11 to 12 years old. In those days, 12 years old was a very independent person who was basically a woman.
And she was very reliable. It doesn't mention anything about his father being alive. But his father was Emraan whether he was a lie, why not? I don't know.
And then Allah talks about his mother in the most compassionate, intimate and beautiful way. That makes the heart
She was pregnant with Musa Ali's center.
And when he was born,
she saw just before he was born, she saw a dream from Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah says in the Quran, whoa Hayner in a mimosa.
Wait gave one from Djibouti Radha is Salam, in her dream to the mother of Musa.
Now, I'm not sure what Jibreel Some scholars say God, some say it was a dream.
But humans can see angels in their dream. It doesn't mean they're prophets. She wasn't a prophet.
But she could stow away meaning a dream from Allah.
That she was to put her son into a basket. And in that dream, he taught her how to seal that basket so that it doesn't get flooded, and no insects or anything can come into it. And to put it into the Nile River and let it sail.
When she woke up to these dreams, many times seeing them she knew what she had to do.
Because they did believe in god they believed in Allah. Musa says mother was a believer.
She had followed the religion of use of Elisa Lam.
And so Allah says in the Quran, when Musa is born,
and take your time.
And when you fear upon his safety, put him in the basket, and let him sail in the Nile.
So the verses are saying that he didn't, she didn't have to get rid of him immediately. She keeps him breastfeeding for a little while. And then when she has no other option, put him in the basket. In the Talmud, the biblical Scripture, the Bible, the Torah, it says
that Pharaoh started to send women from the COTS with their children with their babies, to visit the homes of the Israelite mothers, and to deliberately make their children
cry, so that the Israelite babies can cry. And if they find out, they'll take them away.
And so the mother of Musa same thing happened to her, she found out that they were coming over, they were in the area. And that's when she thought That's it, I'm going to have to fulfill the dream Subhanallah maybe there's a wisdom why Allah allowed her to Breastfeed the child a little bit before she set him free. There's something about the mother's milk, because before it turns into milk for those who mothers obviously would know this more than me, when she first lactates we'll call it lactation, which first as a child, it's not actually milk.
You say that it's a yellow substance, okay, and it's very, very tiny little bit just enough for the stomach of the little baby Subhanallah just such a tiny little bit, and that has tremendous nutrients in it more than the normal milk that's produced. And what happens is that also part of the DNA and part of I don't know what's inside of it actually goes into the baby and this research about it now among them in the medical field. And subhanAllah I've mentioned this before that in our Sharia, you can become the brother of the sibling of someone else from me breastfeeding.
And if you are not eating it normal food.
If you're if you're a baby, and there's another baby, and you're both breastfed from the same mother, at least four stomach falls, some scholars say even one, then you actually become brothers and sisters, by breast being breastfeed. You can't marry each other. You're actually models to each other.
And of course, the last sentence uncle Hamza was like that it was his brother in law in by being breastfed now.
So my brother and sisters in Islam something secret about that. Musa son had a few samples from his mother, and then the danger came. Allah subhanaw taala tells us this account in the Quran. She says, we'll call that li li ko si for basura to be here on Jordan. What
Malaria, Sharon, she told his sister, follow the basket in the Nile. And don't make yourself
too observant, you know, then that people see you
and follow where the basket goes. Allah told her in the dream when you put him in denial, don't fear. Don't be afraid. In raw doohickey Leakey, we promise you, we are going to return him back to
this is a mother. There's nothing that can describe the affection of the mother.
And Allah knows this because he created the mother. And he knows how she feels about this. But it's for the security of her child.
Not only did Allah comfort her that we shall return him back to you. He also said to her, he says in the Quran, that we shall give you assistance. And Allah describes the way the mother of Musa was in her feelings when she put him into the Nile. Subhanallah hell from above seven heavens. In a book that is still with us for 1400 years, we recite the same verses about something that seems insignificant to a lot of us a very subtle feeling and emotion of one mother, standing at an oil putting her baby into a basket. Allah subhana wa Taala says, was behalf of me most
and the heart of the mother of Musa became empty.
What does that mean? Absolutely description. It means that the way the mother of Musa felt when she put her own baby in the basket in denial, fearing what will happen to him, she had actually passed the level of feelings of crying, she couldn't cry. You know, you go into stages. First is fear, you shiver, you move around, then you cry. That's the second level, second stage of fear and sadness. And then there is even a higher level than crying and that is shock.
You become still,
you become emotionless, you can't cry. And you don't think it's called shock. You know, someone's in shock is the ultimate form. And then there's an in some people, they, they faint, they lose consciousness after that.
So Allah is saying her heart was fat. It was empty, meaning no emotions.
It means she reached the stage where she couldn't, she didn't even realize that she's existing anymore. That's how how afraid she was and how sad she was about putting her child
was perhaps minnows.
Allah says her heart was so empty that she almost was about to tell about her child. Allah says in God that the tubidy be He.
She was so emotionless and in shock that she was almost about to utter the words, my baby my baby. Had she said my baby, my baby, she would have exposed him and given him up and they would have killed him.
Allah says Lola Roboto. Now Allah couldn't be here, later Coleman a minute meaning
ALLAH says, if it wasn't for us coming to her aid, so there was miracle intervention. Allah said, We strengthened her heart.
She couldn't strengthen it herself. And if he brought the entire world they wouldn't be able to do it. Allah says if we hadn't strengthened her heart and gave her the feeling of security with Hakuna Matata not many men, the word Iman comes from the root word in Arabic, Aman, which means security. That's why we say a believer is not the equivalents of the word movement. A movement is somebody who finds the feeling of security, comfort and peace inside their heart. That doesn't kind of come by them. That happens over time. You earn it. It's a gift from Allah Spano God.
So Allah says Lita, cool. Mini was strengthened her heart until she became at ease at peace, and she felt security
maybe an alligator will get a crocodile or something or an alligator. They exist in Egypt, crocodiles, crocs being from Australia. I say alligator.
Crocodile alligators in America, the US? We don't have them here in Australia.
The big ones, crocodiles. big massive dinosaurs. Michelle. That's why people don't want to come to Australia. They think that in Australia it's it's
So full of danger and stuff like that. So alligators crocodiles
will a fish eat him will something will a snake bite him
she was insecurity
and on the way his sister is following. Now Allah describes the way his sister was following the baskets she said, for bussola to be him, she kept looking at the basket on the way
on job from a distance one layer showed one not making anybody realize what she was doing. So she'd act like she's buying, picking up walking to a distance talking to someone very smart girl at the age of 12. Very, very intelligent.
And she saw the basket land at the most unpredictable place. Where does Allah say it landed?
And so we made him land at the doorstep of the enemy who wanted to kill him.
There's an interpretation of the verses. Allah says Lee Hakuna Allahumma do one was Allah.
Allah made Musa Salam landed the palaces of frown and her man themselves. Allah says in order for him to be an enemy for them, and a misery for their future.
Allah subhanho wa Taala
tells us that he forbid all the women from being able to breastfeed this baby. So it cuts a bit of the story out.
And this is what probably happened.
He landed at the palace. His sister is looking at him.
A group of the women of the palace maidens of crown, they saw the baby they took him and they must have taken him straight to frown to say look, here's a baby for our looks at him. And he notices everything is clear. What would it be to be doing in a basket sealed basket in the Nile River
and it's a boy.
So anyone is obvious about this. He must be one of the children of the women of the mothers of Israel.
Israelites she must have feared for his safety put him in the basket and set him off in the Nile in the hope that we don't kill it. It's an Israelite baby. So for our own decided to kill the baby Musa now at this point also doesn't have a name. I didn't mention that before.
Musa does not have a name yet.
Baby of the Israelites
who jumps in
Her name was asiyah been to Musa him Alagar Salah
some people once said to me how can you say ser Lena said and she a prophet? Yeah me please listen. The Word of Allah has said is a dua yeah we say to the prophets that you're allowed to say to anyone then we say adhere to the law he was slower to tell you about a salam alayka you're never you're not loyal but okay well we can say salam ala Nabi Europlug, Ricardo after that what do we say a Salam o Halina.
Peace be upon us. So that Marlene while the learner slightly in MPSP upon the righteous slaves of Allah, this is a dire it has sinner. But we don't mean that luxury is a profit. I get surprised when someone says you shouldn't say I said a profit and capital letters like A shouting at me. I don't know what's going on.
So my brothers and sisters are leaders so that makes sense. All right.
And as Dr. Les has salon was one of the four perfect Women of the World
Maria Maria Sara LCRA Sarah Khadija into Hawaii that is really Allahu Allah, Allah will go to the salon because she's a companion to our salon. And Fatima is the daughter of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, Salam Rhodiola one
my brothers and sisters in his kindness Hadees inside Muslim Bukhari, Sahih Hadith. Some of the sisters Asya is one of the perfect women of the world that is mentioned in the Quran was high status. It is said that she was one of the children of Israel. But other narrations say that she was actually from the cuts from the actual descendants of the pharaoh that existed time Yusuf Ali Salam, everybody.
Frauen had married her. He wanted to take her as a concubine from her father.
But her father said she's too young.
And I won't give it to you as a concubine. Anyway, he says you're going to give it to me. So he goes on us
Dora says Dora,
marry for her own otherwise, you know he'll kill us. So she said, okay, but only in marriage. I want to be a concubine. He said, Okay, I'm married and so for our own married, SCF intimacy
and she hated her life with him, she hated him. She ran to the baby. And she said as in the Quran, she says to frown
Kurata Hi, Ian Lee Wallach Kurata. Hi, Ian Lee Wallach,
let him be
a close one like a child for me and you talk to don't kill him.
Maybe he will benefit us. And she convinced around by saying we'll raise him as our own child. And then we'll teach him our ways, and our lifestyle and our religion, our everything. Now, by the way, early on, so I'm still in a religion of use of Alison, she was a Muslim.
But she kept that a secret from Pharaoh. She never told him I don't wish if you
and she said to him, please keep him and we will teach him and he will help us against the Israelites.
And for Alan was convinced by her argument.
Now, the question, Why did Asya love this baby so much? The answer is in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran
what I will call you to either you come a hot button Mini. He said to Musa alayhis salam, when he was born, that when he was born, that when he was born, Allah said to him.
Later on, when you were born, I bestowed I cast upon you a special love from me that people can see in your face, what Allah claimed to Alikum a habit and many are cast upon you love from me.
So everybody who looked at this baby, from the first sight couldn't help but love the baby.
And that's exactly what happened to Anastasia and the rest of the women at the palace. They immediately love this baby and they didn't want to kill him.
And so Allah plotted, they plot and they plan but Allah plots are plans and Allah is the best of planners. He was raised among the man who was going to kill him his enemy.
Suddenly, the baby starts to cry. He wants milk. So they give them to all these different women. Now, you got to understand in those days, every noble person, every wealthy person, every important person, if they had a baby, it was accustomed, and it was noble to choose a woman who would foster the baby.
A woman who would foster the baby. And I would leave that baby with that mother with that person with that woman for at least two years or three years or four years. She would races most of the time. And that's exactly what happened to Mohammed Salah Salem was raised by who, who was his foster mother Halima to Saudi I remember she stayed he stayed with for two years.
Pharaoh did the same thing. They were looking for a foster carer a foster mother for Musa and Allah says in the Quran, well, haram now I think you hit him out all they have in common.
We forbid all the milk of all the mothers and all the women before meaning before he was born. He was created not to accept any other milk but the milk of his own mother.
Now his sister is living in the town. She's sitting there for days, and she hears about this news. So she comes up women start coming up to Pharaoh's palace and trying to try things and and she comes up and says, Hey, I know. I know of a family who can foster this child. They're trustworthy. They're so compassionate. They're so good. And they're really good at raising kids.
Do you want me to show you, the women go? Yeah, tell us tell us darling. She comes up and starts pointing to her to her own mother.
The mother of new Sally's.
And so they went all the way back
to her house. And immediately more Sally, his seller latched on to her
and started to suckle from her milk.
So Allah says, Follow the dinner Who 11 Me. And so this is how we returned him back to his mother, Kay Takakura you know her that her eyes might be comforted when she doesn't, and she might not grieve.
When he thought you know what, I don't know he can what I can axon axon law.
And realize that the Promise of Allah was true, but most people are unaware of this.
According to the Bible and Talmud, Musa alayhis salam was named Moses by the people of the palace of Quran and the word Moses in Hebrew means it
read him out of the water.
I drink out of the water
and I'm sorry the word Moses is not a Hebrew word. In the cop language, it means I drew him out of the water.
Mo it's not what I'm not sure for Mohammed mo in those days mo more meant
it meant water. And then
OSH Aisha or something like that means something about finding him or taking him out. So more sir
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
He who works to earn his livelihood
and keeps in view Allah's goodwill also has a likeness with the Prophet Musa Ali's salaams mother,
who cycled her own son, as well as received her wages for the service to
what does this mean? It means that any of us who go about they get a job, they work to earn a living, to feed themselves and to feed their children and to feed their family to give them shelter,
while earning extra and savings and making profit, and enjoying their money. If you do it for the sake of Allah, like you want the rewards from Allah and you're not miserly, then Allah says you will receive that. And you are also entitled for a reward in the hereafter from Allah for your efforts.
So any work and striving that you do for your family or even for yourself that you love and nourish yourself with, so long as you have Allah in mind and thanking him for it, and not forgetting Him, you get the reward of all that work will not go go lost in vain. In this world, it will not just die, and it'll go away. It'll stay with you as rewards for your hereafter.
So do not be miserly towards your family, my brothers and sisters and your children, every cent every bit every energy that you put fathers and mothers, children of the of the parents if you want to help your parents, your family, anything you put forth will not be lost with Allah subhanaw taala. And he said, it's like the example of the mother of Musa not only did she have a child back,
but also they paid her. They paid her for breastfeeding Musa while not knowing that she was his mother, you get it, got her son back, looked after our child and got wages for it. And that was the reward from Allah.
I'll say a couple of more things and inshallah we'll end it and leave it till next week. Allah says, well, am I better or should devil was stoneware Athena Hockman. We're in work early, can I just say Marcin?
And so when Musa grew up, and he reached his most strongest, and fittest age,
we granted him two things, wisdom, and knowledge.
What is wisdom and what is knowledge? And what is the difference between these two? HC man HECM means understanding
and able to implement this understanding in the right place to know where everything belongs, knowing what to do. And knowledge is the knowledge of the world and religion. So knowing how things work and having information of religion and worldly things is called knowledge. Wisdom is the understanding and skill and ability in how to use this knowledge and place it in the right place. That's why we call the judge in Arabic or hack him. A hack can mean somebody was able to judge and put the judgment in the right place.
Musa alayhis salam grew very very tall in the Hadith Sahih Muslim when perhaps Allah Salah went to strugglin Mirage he said I saw Musa in the sixth heaven
and he describes him for us. He says he was a dummy. Dummy means he was dark, very dark with dark skinned
and his hair was neither silky straight nor too curly. It was somewhere in between.
He had dark hair as well. He was a handsome, strong masculine men. Very tall, taller than Mohamed Salah Salem. Broad shoulders broader than the process LM shoulders and chest.
And one thing he described him with was that he said he looked
like he he can be he can take on toughness.
You know he can he can work. He looked like he had he's a type of man so masculine that he can take on right
And he said that he had the strength of 10 men, or Sally's equivalent to about 10 men, he said,
more Sally's setup. So now you can imagine a tall, broad, strong,
masculine like that. He also described him as being extremely hairy.
Lots of hair on his body, shoulders back. He said, If he was wearing a shirt or salsa lesson, I've said this and he said, If he was wearing a shirt,
the hair will still pop out.
It still you see here.
And this is a sign of masculinity in a man, there's lots of testosterone, more salsa. But I'll tell you something.
Musa alayhis salam was not what you think when I said here, I know a lot of people they think oh man, is this terrible, the gorilla, not like a gorilla, although it was hearing compared to what Arabs really were in, in, in Medina and Mecca. But he was very handsome.
Very broad. Very nice to look at. And this is other Hadith. It's just insightful for me. I don't want to mention it today. Maybe I'll say it next week. about a time when his people he was I suppose has been described as a very shy, was very shy and timid in his nature, he always covered himself.
He was shy and covered himself.
And the people started to think that Musa he doesn't because they still have a public bath. They say Musa doesn't want to come and bathe with us in the public bath, because something's wrong with him.
The hadith specifically mentions that something's wrong with him they sit in his private areas. You know, something's wrong.
The hadith goes on by saying that one day he went to bath by himself and spa some people saw him without clothes on not completely naked that they saw him and they realized that he was not only normal, but actually very impressive to look at more Sally's center. That's it's actually not inside Buhari. He was is very, very handsome, very solid, built very everything 100 him. So that was more sadly his center. And Allah would not create such things in profits, bad things. However, there was one thing in Musa alayhis salam worth mentioning here, and it's not really a negative thing. It's a positive thing.
Musa alayhis salam had a problem with his speech.
Now the Quran doesn't mention exactly what the problem was. And it had this there aren't any reliable sources that I could find, which describes exactly what's wrong. Some say Some scholars say no, he had a lisp. Some say he started a little bit here to stutter.
But the point is, he had some kind of disability, minor disability in his speech, minor.
speech impairment if you want to call it
something but quite minor, so he could speak very well. And there will tell us that whenever he spoke about the message, the religion as from Allah, Spano, Diana, he was he was eloquent. But when he spoke normal, worldly talk, he had a speech impairment,
which tells us people with disabilities or any kind of impairment are no less than anyone else. They can succeed and advance and do anything they want, just like anyone else. Allah assisted spam, I saw the study documentary about Down syndrome people, Allahu Akbar, many of us and one of them got the PhD the other day, I read about it Down syndrome, and we think that they're not capable. Subhanallah so never looked down on disabled people.
And this mind develops brain is Allahu Akbar everything, isn't it? Musa lesson had a speech impairment, yet, he was the wisest and the most knowledgeable, a leader, not only a prophet and messenger, not only messenger among the five best messengers that Allah had ever sent. As a result, later on, you'll see that he made his brother hurdle, a profit to help him because Harun Allah is Sudan was more eloquent in his speech. But it was not more important than most Allison. You see, he is more eloquent. Sounds amazing how one can speak can get more famous speech. People would love to listen to his speech, but guess who's more important?
It's not in our appearance. It's not in how nice we talk, how nice we walk, how nice we drive, how nice our clothes up. How good looking we are. None of that
is in your actions, your values, your morals, your treatment of others, your principles. Your mind this is what you are valued for.
such as more Sally's.
I'll stop here in sha Allah. And I'll just say, Musa alayhis salam now in this story has reached adolescent, some say about 20 years old, just above 20 years old.
And these are Israelite traditions by the way, but we know from the Quran that he was old enough to be strong enough and do his own thing was a man who was an adult.
At this point, he is not yet a prophet.
He's not a prophet, yet he hasn't received the prophet would not is haram. But at this point Musa alayhis salam was a believer of the religion of your so follow his sunnah and Jaco and his Huck and Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam, how he learned from the Israelites, he learned to from his mother's family, from the mother and father, because it was returned back to them. And he memorized and learned the cop language. You knew Hebrew and Coptic language in those days, whatever it was the Egyptian language, and he learned the art and the science of the Egyptians as well. So it was quite educated, more sallies. He knew the technology and knew that and he also knew their sorcery, because
they had sorcery. But really, the sorcery was really science, a lot of science really science work and illusions. He learned how they do it, but he never practiced it himself.
And he loved the culture and the morals and ethics and religion of the Israelites.
So my brother sisters will stop here in sha Allah, next week in sha Allah we will continue and try to finish the rest of the story of Musa Islam story is huge. And there are things I think that you have never heard before you think you have
there may be a lot haven't heard them because when I first read about it a long time ago, I thought I knew the whole story of Musa but actually, I was very far from it. So inshallah next week one of the sisters will continue to story of Musa alayhis salaam with all the wisdoms and lessons I thank you for listening. I ask Allah to accept this from us, or Salalah on and have been encumbered by the idea Sophia Jermaine was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
