Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

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

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah.

00:00:18 --> 00:00:25

Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Today we are continuing the story of Musa Ali who sat down part three.

00:00:26 --> 00:00:30

And just to remind everyone we now begin on Wednesdays between Malaysia

00:00:31 --> 00:00:32

for the

00:00:33 --> 00:00:35

for the rest of this year in sha Allah.

00:00:37 --> 00:00:40

So from where we left off about Musa alayhis salam

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

he reached for home, thank you. So

00:00:45 --> 00:00:46

he reached around.

00:00:49 --> 00:00:50


00:00:53 --> 00:00:55

Allah subhanaw taala had ordered him

00:00:56 --> 00:01:01

to revise from and to speak to him in a lenient manner.

00:01:03 --> 00:01:06

Obviously, for our own was a tyrant man.

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

And for our own,

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

as we know,

00:01:14 --> 00:01:18

was ready to kill anybody who got in the way of his kingdom.

00:01:20 --> 00:01:21

So what happened?

00:01:22 --> 00:01:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala told him and his brother had grown to go to him to the children of Israel and to call him to the worship of one God, Allah as a messenger of Allah, for he had become a tyrant.

00:01:39 --> 00:01:46

And Musa alayhis salam was afraid. He said, Oh, my Lord, I fear

00:01:47 --> 00:01:48

that he and his

00:01:50 --> 00:01:58

courtiers will attack us and they will torture us and, and go against us and silence us from the message.

00:01:59 --> 00:02:14

Musa alayhis salam wanted to convey the message wanted to carry out the duty that Allah had given him. So Allah began to comfort him and say go you and your brother with my signs. I'm going to give you signs that will help you along the way.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:36

For Kula level Coenen Lina speak to him in a gentle lenient manner. Don't go off, talking strongly towards him. Even though Allah told him I'm with you, the Lord of the Worlds, still Allah told him, use the wisdom.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:58

And when you are faced with a tyrant, use gentle words, lenient words. Don't try to challenge that person. Because frown was expecting a challenge. And anyone who challenges him, he is not going to think he is going to cause more harm.

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

For this reason Dawa to Islam has many ways.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:09

And Allah tells us to use what is the best form.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:17

You analyze, you study, you investigate research, before going into Dawa.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:24

And when you speak to someone, try to learn about people's communication, its people

00:03:26 --> 00:03:37

how they think, their mindsets, their culture. In Australia, data would be different to what you would give in any place in the Middle East, or other Western countries or European countries.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:40

Every place has its way.

00:03:41 --> 00:04:04

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam. So Musa alayhis, Salam and Harun went, and as we said last week, the security guards would not allow him to enter. So we said I am Rasool or we are also we are messengers. And as we know, kings had an international law, that you have to accept messengers and not harm them.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:39

Because if you do kill the messenger, or you're bad to them, it meant declaring a war against another empire. Obviously, for our own did not rule the entire world. He only ruled the regions of Egypt. That was his dominion. And he was among the most powerful kings of the world, in within his region, very technologically advanced scientifically ahead of everyone. Engineering, Science was ahead of everyone. But they had this other thing called sorcery. They were experts at

00:04:40 --> 00:04:56

creating illusions so that people can see that which is not real. Illusions, they were able to do that in some form. Allah Who knows *, but in the Quran, it is called the Sahara of the eyes, sorcery upon the eyes.

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

We'll get to that in a minute and share Allah

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

They let him enter.

00:05:03 --> 00:05:11

And Musa alayhis salam did exactly as Allah told him and his brother Harun would speak eloquently, Musa alayhis salam would say, speak as well.

00:05:13 --> 00:05:29

And the first thing Quran did was that he listened to him for a few moments. And as soon as he heard Musa alayhis salam and heroines say to him, we are messengers from your Lord.

00:05:31 --> 00:05:36

For all thought, this is this is fun, I gotta hear this, your Lord.

00:05:39 --> 00:05:42

So send with us, the children of Israel, and do not torture them.

00:05:44 --> 00:05:45

Now, although

00:05:47 --> 00:05:50

this was eloquent, and this was the truth,

00:05:51 --> 00:06:22

frown, was forced to listen to them because they had made an outrageous claim in front of the king, and the pharaoh of the whole land in front of his courtiers. And for him to be filled with rage and emotion would be a sign of his weakness. A King is not like that, as though he is fearing His kingdom. What is the claim that will certainly have been made? The claim is, you have a Lord who has authority over you.

00:06:23 --> 00:06:43

frown, declared himself the authority over everyone in Egypt. Not that people had to pray to him, he believed he allowed people to worship their own gods and follow their own religion in their private affairs. He didn't care about that. But when it came to politics, lawmaking,

00:06:44 --> 00:07:17

he was the lord of that, because Rob means the Lord, and you can be the Lord of laws. And really, honestly, the state of Pharaoh and the story of him in the Quran is no different than today's world, especially in the secular world, the Western world, and a lot of Arab worlds too. Now they're adopting this. And basically secularism separating religion from state, Islam actually came down, to declare justice and apply justice for all people. And in order to establish judge justice, there has to be

00:07:18 --> 00:07:23

a huge involvement. In fact, if not the core, in governance

00:07:24 --> 00:07:25

in lawmaking.

00:07:26 --> 00:07:37

Allah says that he has sent down this book and with it the hokum, the laws, and we all know how much only laws around the Quran, Sharia

00:07:38 --> 00:08:14

is our law. And Sharia is fair. And just, and the objectives of Sharia are five, the first objective protection of rights and religion. Number two, protection of life. Number three, protection of property of people. Number four, protection of dignity and honor. People have a right for the dignity and honor to be protected. And number five, is the protection of the mind.

00:08:15 --> 00:08:19

And that is why Islam forbids intoxicate intoxications.

00:08:21 --> 00:08:36

Anything that intoxicates the minds of people and take them out of their state of thinking is forbidden. And therefore, Islam or the Sharia has entire objective are these main five, when it comes to the public,

00:08:37 --> 00:09:12

nobody could disagree with that. And he places laws in place in order to protect people and allow them to live in that piece. Islam was in this world as a great empire, a philosopher, as you know, for more than 1000 years, until the fall of the last one Ottoman Empire, I did not deny that there was corruption along the way. But for those who established the shutdown in general, Islam flourished in the ways that no civilization has ever seen before. In fact, for 300 years for those of you who read

00:09:13 --> 00:09:23

in the just the common history books, Islam and the Muslim world, were the leaders in scientific technology, and engineering.

00:09:24 --> 00:09:59

They used to translate the Arabic books of science and engineering into other languages, in order for them to learn from the Muslims, Christianity and Judaism and no other religion was scientifically and mathematically advanced as what the Muslim world was with their Sharia, which people ignorantly and arrogantly called backwards, then how then, more than actually more than 300 years, 1000 years, the Muslims flourished in their civilization technology advancement

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

In everything, and we have the history to prove it. We have the artifacts, we have the buildings, we have that all there and ready to be seen in your normal social books that you learn in high school. There's mentioned of the Muslim empire, and the Islamic Spain and villas and the achievements of Muslims and their advancement. It's not something hidden. My brothers and sisters, the point is, Musa alayhis salam was sent to Pharaoh in order to stop him from injustice, and to apply the command of God of Allah, in order to do what one purpose bring back justice to Egypt and the people regardless of their nationality and their background, namely, the children of Israel at that time

00:10:53 --> 00:10:56

because the children of Israel were being oppressed.

00:10:57 --> 00:10:59

As we all know, the hierarchy that Pharaoh did.

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

Brothers and Sisters in Islam, Pharaoh could not accept that he could not accept that someone comes with someone higher than him, claiming that he is the lawmaker instead of himself. That's number one.

00:11:15 --> 00:11:26

Number two, Musa alayhis. Salam is commanding him to release the children of Israel. This is politics. This is law. And for Allen was not ready to accept that either.

00:11:27 --> 00:11:38

And that is why he turned to his people to the courtiers and the high ranking people in his palaces. And he said to them, at this man.

00:11:41 --> 00:11:47

Can't you listen to this guy, listen to what he's saying. This is sarcastically listen to what this guy's saying.

00:11:50 --> 00:11:51

And then and then for a while.

00:11:52 --> 00:11:54

He said to him the first thing

00:11:55 --> 00:12:03

as if it's patronizing or not patronizing is to say something to make a person seem like they're just foolish and stupid. He says to him

00:12:06 --> 00:12:06


00:12:08 --> 00:12:14

LM neurotic, afina Wellington with a bitter fina, Minamoto Cassie Nene?

00:12:15 --> 00:12:18

Did we not raise you among us?

00:12:20 --> 00:12:23

And you lived with us for many years under our care. And Moses?

00:12:25 --> 00:12:34

Did you not be raised among us? Here it indicates and Allah knows best. And I believe that it wasn't the original Pharaoh who found Moses

00:12:35 --> 00:12:45

in the river. This was his son most likely. Because he said, and you are raised among us. Otherwise, you would have said I raised you.

00:12:46 --> 00:13:00

But instead you will raise the malleus when you're a child, and you live with us for years, regardless of which one it is, the point is, he is now appealing to him reminding him that we raised you and we taught you was this knowledge coming from to teach us now.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:19

You know, who are you to teach us? We're the one who raised you with one or two educated you will find it the Falletta committee for Altova and terminal care 15. And he said to him, and you did that act, which you did, which you and I know about? I'm not gonna mention it

00:13:20 --> 00:13:22

while you were a disbeliever?

00:13:24 --> 00:13:26

Why would Iran call him a disbeliever?

00:13:27 --> 00:13:36

Well, because from the position of Iran, they had a religion, they worshipped many gods, and they had the rule of the King Pharaoh.

00:13:37 --> 00:13:59

They had known Moses never to have accepted their beliefs he used to deny them he was a disbeliever in their beliefs. They always knew Moses growing up not accepting their beliefs but because he was raised among the palaces that just let him be someone was he's not affecting the you know the authority or the power or the law then he's all right, that everybody wish to put them on notice you but

00:14:01 --> 00:14:10

but you see Pharaoh this gave him a chance and justification to continue his oppression. When Musa came with them a higher authority that threatened him big time.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:51

Now, when he reminded him of his action he meant and remember, in other words, the guy you murdered from the Egyptians, if you want me to bring that up, it means that we're going to put you to death. So you better be quiet. He's telling him in a nice way. Musa alayhis salam had enough of this. He's been running away from all of his life. And this time he faced it head on with the power of Allah because he had told the last anadolujet said, Yeah, I've killed one of their people and I fear that they're going to carry out the penalty on me. And Allah says, no, they want you go with our support, and just sail with the boat. In other words, in other words, sail along, I'll help you. So then Musa

00:14:51 --> 00:14:54

brought some courage, and he faced the Pharaoh and said

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

Carla, fall to her, isn't it

00:15:00 --> 00:15:01

Well, and I mean of Berlin,

00:15:02 --> 00:15:15

you just called me a disbeliever, that I was on the wrong path. Now obviously, Musa SNM was actually on the right path by not accepting the religion of the Egyptians, which worshipped so many gods and, and lots of

00:15:16 --> 00:15:29

nonsense. Now, since the Pharaoh told Moses, you're a disbeliever, it means that Moses was, was lost, he didn't know what he was doing. So he goes, Okay, well, then if, in other words, if I was a disbeliever,

00:15:30 --> 00:16:07

then I was, I was in the rock, I killed that man, based on my disbelief and being, you know, following nonsense in my head, since you called me a person of nonsense, I was following the wrong way. I was in the wrong way. Therefore, I killed him in the wrong way. So don't penalize me on something which you've just admitted that I did by mistake, because I was lost. According to you, I was lost because I didn't follow your religion. You see how he said it now for one had to be so honest with that, because he made a statement, the king says to him, Well, you were lost. And you did that thing. And also said, well, since I was lost, and I killed him, then you would consider me

00:16:07 --> 00:16:15

something like mentally insane. So let me go for it to have even Okay, I did it. And therefore I was among the last ones.

00:16:17 --> 00:16:35

Obviously, musasa had killed the men by mistake, he didn't intend to do that. And then he says, For Ferrara to mean Kamala massive to come. And then I ran away from you. I mean, you could see that I was afraid and something was wrong with me, according to you, because look what I did, I ran away from you.

00:16:37 --> 00:16:38

And I was afraid.

00:16:41 --> 00:17:20

And so my Lord gave me wisdom. For what happened here, Robbie Hawkman. Say, Farah, if you can't beat him, join him. So more sir, was going along with what Pharaoh was saying. Right? And that's quite wise. This is a pharaoh a king. He doesn't want to make him look wrong at the same time and Musa is being passive aggressive, like he's hiding the truth and saying it in a in a smart way. And in this case, it's alright. It's saying, Well, okay, well, I ran away from you, I was on the wrong according to you as a disbeliever. I was very afraid maybe I was mentally ill that time. But then my Lord gave me wisdom. So then I found the right path. How are you going to penalize me for something in the

00:17:20 --> 00:17:23

past? Well, I wasn't in my right mind, according to you.

00:17:24 --> 00:18:02

Which island in Milan, Mursaleen. And my Lord is the one that made me among the messengers. See how Musa is not talking about himself. He's saying someone else a higher authority made me among the messengers. In other words, he is challenging this great Pharaoh who calls himself the Lord with another Lord, who has a greater power than he is now. Kings don't just settle for that they have to prove the other person wrong because now it's going to cause doubts in the eyes of the other people. Why for what are you afraid of? Lots of questions will come out. He's challenging his authority. So Pharaoh can't just sit down now Musa has given him a challenge and move on frown took it as a

00:18:02 --> 00:18:28

challenge. And then Musa Satyam and what so you're trying to tell me that because you I was raised among you and your palaces that you have favored me in some way. Look at what you've done. You've taken my people, my family, and you've turned them into slaves. And then you come and tell me that you raised me and did good to me. You have destroyed my life. You've destroyed my people, everything that I've got, what favor you're talking about?

00:18:29 --> 00:18:36

So Pharaoh, before he could go into too much detail here and people starting to doubt him.

00:18:37 --> 00:19:20

Fit rounds said to him, okay, then, well, Morocco Island. And what is this Lord of the worlds that you are talking about? Why Matt? Means what is he? He didn't say, Well, man, who is he? He said, What is it? And that's really just, it's like denigrating, degrading who Allah's pantallas says Walmart one out of Bhullar limit, what is this? You know, what's he compared to me? And he turned to his people and said, Don't you people see that I do not know any other God for you but myself. Look at the rivers beneath my command and the people beneath my command and all the wealth and everything can't survive without me. So you're going to choose as an authority. It's a hidden threat, almost.

00:19:21 --> 00:19:58

And more success to him. He is the Lord of the heavens and the Lord of the earth. One I've been that woman, the heavens in the Quran, when you translate it as heavens in Arabic, it's MLS. AMOLED means space, Cosmos, and many Cosmos layers of space and stars and everything from beginning to end. When they know him, and he's the Lord of everything in between him and he controls it all. You don't control it, Pharaoh. So in other words, I dare you Pharaoh to tell me that you control the stars, the moon, the sun and everything. I mean, you just said that you control the Nile River, you control the land, but I just told you, my Lord controls everything from beginning to end the entire Universe

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

and the Earth and everything in between them.

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

seek Pharaoh had learned from the time of Abraham the new story that there was another king who said, I am God. Pharaoh couldn't do the same thing because he can't say, I controlled the heavens and earth because most I would have said to him, Well, why don't you bring the sun from another place? If you control everything? Now, obviously, Pharaoh didn't mean that he meant that in this land on the God on the authority, how do you challenge me with that?

00:20:26 --> 00:20:30

And Musa, in other words, does a hidden challenge.

00:20:34 --> 00:21:00

So frown goes to him. Okay. So what about all the people before us like our ancestors? were you telling that those 10s of 1000s of those millions of people for 10s of 1000s of years ago, all of them, those who worship other gods, they're all on the wrong? So what about them? My my bad will put on an order. What about generations before telling you that all of them on the wrong organ health, they're all going to be on the wrong?

00:21:02 --> 00:21:38

Now this is a trick for Ireland is trying to incite the people of Egypt against spirit by making the connection between them and their forefathers is making it nationalistic. And this is a trick that's still used today by tyrants everywhere. This is a normal thing. Still, today. It's done. There's nothing new about it. There's nothing old about it. So it's still new. It's still here. They use nationalism against you into in order to incite people and to create wars. Right then to continue with nationalism, then turn them into religious okay, but they touched a religion to nationalism. If you haven't realized throughout history, it is the case for people who follow false.

00:21:39 --> 00:22:07

Now brothers and sisters, for our own set to his people, are your forefathers. Are they all in the wrong? He's expecting Musa to reply? *, yes, exactly that he wants to track he wants to tell him yes, that we're all in the wrong and they were all thing and I deserve *. Now that would have incited real war the pit and I would have had war with Musa and killed him straight there. And then no one could do anything about it. But since Allah told him Kula level colon laden and Choose your words wisely, Musa al salaam replied by saying,

00:22:09 --> 00:22:24

in my hand, or be look, their case is with my boat. Okay, I don't know anything about him. Like that, whatever they've done, then with God, and God will judge them according to what he knows I wasn't there.

00:22:26 --> 00:22:27

What a beautiful answer.

00:22:29 --> 00:22:40

So the people can't blame Musa because he didn't attack their forefathers. At the same time he gave it to a Lord, who will judge them who they don't believe in anyway. So why have they got to worry?

00:22:42 --> 00:23:00

And in other words, he gave him some kinds of respect. And then he returned it back and said, Now, this situation is about me in New here. Don't try to change the topic. We are now in this situation. Here I am. Here you are. The others have gone. What are we going to do about this? This is what I'm telling you.

00:23:01 --> 00:23:04

So for our turns around and he realizes he's stuck.

00:23:09 --> 00:23:17

He said, listen, Moses, if you were to take a God beside me, meaning and authority in my land beside me,

00:23:18 --> 00:23:19

I will put you into prison.

00:23:21 --> 00:23:28

And there you go, that's something familiar. All tyrants do that to silence the truthful people, what do they do with them? Either they torture him,

00:23:30 --> 00:23:39

they expel them. They kill them, or they imprison them. This is how tyrants silent the truth. silence the truth.

00:23:41 --> 00:23:42


00:23:43 --> 00:23:46

from setting I will put you into prison

00:23:58 --> 00:24:08

and so this is when Musa alayhis salam said to him, okay, hold on. What if I were to bring you some signs? Some proof of what I'm saying.

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

And that's when for our own had to listen. Because now he puts him in prison. Everyone's gonna say hold on. He's told he told me he's got proofs. Why did you Why were you afraid? His back in his stuck again.

00:24:22 --> 00:24:28

He said to him, practice here in conterminous sodic. All right, bring me the proof. If you are among the truthful.

00:24:29 --> 00:24:32

Musa has now made for our own get into

00:24:34 --> 00:24:35

a situation

00:24:36 --> 00:24:39

of truth and false based on evidence.

00:24:40 --> 00:24:59

Musa is being objective now. He's not telling him like he's saying to him. Listen, what I just told you and everybody has heard. I'm going to bring you a proof about that before your eyes and frown. Now he's asked. He has to now debate based on evidence and proof because that's what people are listening about. No more threats.

00:25:01 --> 00:25:07

Suddenly, Musa alayhis salam Allah said to him through your staff through your stick.

00:25:08 --> 00:25:11

Immediately without speaking Musa Allah sent through this stick

00:25:13 --> 00:25:17

for Al Garza will fit either here thorough ban on mobian.

00:25:18 --> 00:25:42

Behold, his stick turned into what appeared as a large snake sort of bad means a large snake, a Python, or something like an Anaconda, for about something huge, literally, it was huge. mobian Clear everybody could see it. It was not a vision. It was not an illusion. It was literally from a stick to a large snake. Now this is scientifically impossible.

00:25:44 --> 00:25:56

But miracle, yes, Allah told us as a miracle, Allah can do that. Just like he started our creation from nothing and from soil than it is a miracle that he can change stuff into a snake.

00:25:57 --> 00:26:15

In another verse, or last month, Allah says, either he or Hey, you don't desire. It was a snake that slithered higher means small snake Thorburn means big snake, so the staff turned into a big snake and acted like small snakes littering very fast. That's how it scared frown and the people around him.

00:26:16 --> 00:26:37

As the snake was on the floor, slithering in front of fear and the people Musala send them places his hand into his pocket and releases it. When is the idea that either here by law or didn't know that in Allah says and then he took his hand down and before everyone's eyes, his hand was as as white as snow, with Nord coming out of it very clear for everybody to see.

00:26:41 --> 00:26:43

as immediately as soon as they done that.

00:26:47 --> 00:26:50

Musa alayhis salam said the following words

00:26:51 --> 00:27:04

now, this is from your Lord, the one who made for you this earth for you, to serve you. Over around the Earth is serving you, my Lord is the one that gave you that.

00:27:05 --> 00:27:20

And look how he gave you the rivers and every type of plantation for you to eat and drink from and for your livestock to graze from. And he released from you a biodiversity mean couldn't leave me in Nevada and shut that from all sorts of plantation of flora.

00:27:22 --> 00:27:45

Gulu Wow. And I'm looking for you to eat and enjoy and let your livestock graze. In Nephi 30 caliber, you can only know her. If you think these are my signs, then look at these great signs that are happening before your eyes for people of understanding. So you still appealing to Farallon to obey Allah instead, for our own. And his quote is said,

00:27:46 --> 00:27:47


00:27:48 --> 00:28:28

you have come to scare us with your sorcery Moses. He called it sorcery. While he was in doubt, and the courtiers thought I would say sorcery before. Yes, this is sorcery. So they found a way out of it. Why did they say sorcery? They said sorcery because the people of Egypt had seen sorcery happen before and delusions, and they believed in it strongly. Even if Pharaoh didn't believe in sorcery, he didn't care. All he cared about was what can I trick that these foolish people so that they can remain obedient to me and I remember authority, I don't care what it is. I'll just use it. And that's what politicians who are not all politicians, of course, politicians who want power and

00:28:28 --> 00:29:08

tyranny and dictatorships and presidents who want tyranny, they don't care about the truth, they just care about what people believe. And there's still nothing new about it today. Nothing new. We have not advanced, we are still using the tricks of the past. Pharaoh said, We will bring you a greater sorcery than your sorcery. He kept on repeating the word sorcery over and over why? Because he thinks that he has that he's he thinks that they have people who can make illusions and when they have illusions they have people can make illusions and number two, everybody took sorcery as the highest form of proof

00:29:09 --> 00:29:15

that's how was people thought of it so I must have Okay, we're gonna give you something that the people also believe in and you're gonna kill it

00:29:16 --> 00:29:27

for our thought if he through his staff what will happen sorry if the if the sorcerer's come along, and they made the ropes of slithering snakes everybody will forget about Moses stuff and Moses will just give up

00:29:29 --> 00:29:30

because we want to break that proof.

00:29:31 --> 00:29:36

Now Moses, he didn't want to he didn't want to just as easy as that.

00:29:37 --> 00:29:38

He says to him,

00:29:40 --> 00:29:44

Okay, I accept the challenge. Tell me where and when

00:29:49 --> 00:30:00

for all frown said to him, you choose a time whatever you like Moses. I'm ready to challenge you anywhere. So Moses, this was in his favor and was Isaiah and said call

00:30:00 --> 00:30:03

While I'm away to commune with Xena, when you ashurnasirpal

00:30:05 --> 00:30:28

your meeting I choose is the day of the national holiday. There was a national holiday in Egypt where everybody took the time off. And there was a place where everybody gathered for celebration. It's like when you when people gather on New Year's Eve, but this was in the day, he said, and has to be in Black has to be in, in the heart of the day. I want everything to be clear.

00:30:29 --> 00:30:57

When for our own got this, he thought that he was just going to choose something in the palace. And Moses chose for the entire nation to witness in bright day on a celebration they will nobody can forget, because then they'll say, do you remember it's imagine this on New Year's Eve, this happened? Nobody will forget it. So on the national day of celebration of Egypt, this happened, nobody will forget it. And Pharaoh had to think about it. He goes back to his courtiers, Allah says in the Quran for the wind, if you don't know for sure Makeda who

00:30:58 --> 00:31:13

he went to his coaches and got their advice. He's very careful this is now it means that if Moses is to win, if Moses is to overcome my entire kingdom, and everything will believe in will be shattered. But if I win, my authority is established forever.

00:31:18 --> 00:31:59

Musa before he left, he said, I'll give you one more advice. What do you do not say lies, you know that what you saw in my staff and in my hand was not sorcery? For you to say it was sorcery. And imagine that I was a messenger of God, if that's the truth, right? And my lord really is the god and you've called his work sorcery. This is the most, this is the best abominate This is the worst thing you can say about God. I advise you one more time. You know, it's not sorcery. Don't say lies on God. You're not lying about me. I'm just a man. You're lying about God, and I am His messenger. And what you saw is not sorcery. But Allah says that they were full of pride and arrogance. So they said

00:31:59 --> 00:32:02

we don't care. bring about this challenge.

00:32:04 --> 00:32:23

Some of them Allah says they went together and started talking for the NASA Hello, I'm Ron Boehner, who I serve on Najwa. The core team and people in the palace got together some of them were in delt. Some of them were in arrogance. And so they said, Hey, let's let's let's think about this, let's not do it and others, they sit next to it, this is terrible. And so they decided that they should do it.

00:32:25 --> 00:32:33

They said these two people Wilson and heroine are nothing but sorcerers who have come here to take you out of your own land because

00:32:34 --> 00:33:00

they don't like your way of life. Allah is exactly what they said. They do not like your way of life. And these are the same terminologies we hear from tyrants of the world today. They don't like our ways, our way of life for our own and his quote, he said exactly the same words. Now they know that these people weren't coming to harm anybody they will come to show them the truth, but they cannot accept the truth. So they said they've come to because they don't like your way of life. They want to destroy

00:33:04 --> 00:33:14

the enemy okay, that confirm that all software. So bring all your power and come in a row. And we shall see who is the triumphant?

00:33:17 --> 00:33:55

Most as Frauen sent out a news to all the sorcerers of the land. He wanted to get the best sorcerers and he said, This is the day of dividing between truth and false This is it. So you Sorcerer is better do your best work. The Sorcerer is all got together. And they came to Pharaoh and said, What's the issue? He goes, Don't worry. He's got his stuff. And he made it into us into a snake and I don't know why. So then, for Allen, the sorcerer has said, Well, you know this doesn't sound like sorcery to us. The Sorcerers know what illusions are and the difference between that. But then Pharaoh said to them, they'll kingdom will be gone. So then the sorcerer's thought,

00:33:56 --> 00:34:17

Okay, let's get a benefit out of this. They said if we don't go ahead, Frauen will will do something to us anyway. And we've got a chance of winning maybe Hades, sorcery. So they said to Pharaoh, if we were to do our work, will you reward us? And Pharaoh said, I will not only reward you, I'll give you high positions in the palace, you'll have great positions of authority, and so to entice them.

00:34:19 --> 00:34:20

So what happened?

00:34:22 --> 00:34:23

The Sorcerer's got together

00:34:24 --> 00:34:26

and more Sally Sal and face them with her.

00:34:27 --> 00:34:45

And they said to him, would you like to throw your staff or should we throw ours first client level Elko? He said no, you throw yours first. That's okay. Meaning is trying to make them feel that they have the upper hand. Make them feel like they have the upper hand you do what you have to do.

00:34:46 --> 00:34:52

But in other words, as well, if I beat you and you had a head start, that's a stronger position for me.

00:34:53 --> 00:34:59

So then I through their staffs and their ropes. What happened to the staffs and the ropes, the staffs and the

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

robes or loss is a very peculiar a very

00:35:06 --> 00:35:09

articulate way and he is very, very precise.

00:35:11 --> 00:35:12

Allah says

00:35:18 --> 00:35:24

for either a bird or home ya see your home you hate here to La he means to hurry him and

00:35:27 --> 00:35:35

then suddenly it appeared to Moses. I went to their magic, as if their ropes and stuffs was slithering and running.

00:35:37 --> 00:35:46

For old Josephine FC he if he for the Musa Musa actually felt a fear inside of him. He felt afraid.

00:35:48 --> 00:35:55

Couldn't Allah have in Naka until Allah we said to him through Jebediah Salah Do not be afraid you will be triumphant.

00:35:58 --> 00:36:01

Did the ropes and staffs turn into snakes?

00:36:03 --> 00:36:05

No, they did not.

00:36:06 --> 00:36:11

Did they stops and ropes appear as if they were snakes? No.

00:36:12 --> 00:36:34

No, because Allah didn't say that it was appeared as though there were snakes. It was a misinterpretation. Nowhere in the Quran does Allah say the Sorcerer is ropes and and think turned into snakes. He said that Musa some stuff turned into a snake, but not this. Allah says it appeared to their eyes as if their ropes and staffs were slithering and moving.

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

In other words, their staffs and their ropes did not turn into anything at all.

00:36:41 --> 00:37:19

That's a that's a danger to say that the sorcerer's were able to change their styles and think into snakes. Some some ancient warfare students said that I don't know why what would say this the more like a miracle. Allah specifically says it appeared as an illusion to their eyes that it was slithering and only said their robes and stuff. In another verse, Allah says was Sahara and even a nurse. They did say her on the eyes of people. So much so that even more sir could see their ropes slithering here, and this shows us that even a prophet and a messenger of God can be tricked by sorcery. This type of sorcery was called sorcery of collusion. How they did it I don't know. But

00:37:19 --> 00:37:23

what they did was something to the people's minds and the people's perceptions

00:37:24 --> 00:37:36

musasa got scared and then Allah said to him Well alchemy mafia Munich through what is in your right hand is stuff don't cough Moussa now it will put a stop to what they are doing.

00:37:37 --> 00:38:16

Some Some people believe that Musa through his staff it turned into a snake and it gobbled up this next? No, it did not. This is a wrong interpretation. Again, they were not snakes. And he stopped did not gobble up anything. Allah threw this snake. At that he started turned into a Python. And people somehow became aware of the trick. They saw reality from false and they came to their senses. Allah says Doug Kaufman Asana means it will put an end to what they were doing, meaning whatever they're trying to do, they're not going to be able to continue and people will see the reality. When that happened. In other words, they saw the staff and the ropes normal, and they realize the Python

00:38:17 --> 00:38:29

that of Musa Sam was real. What was happening in the meantime, it astonished the magicians. So in the magicians actually stopped what they were doing in their illusions.

00:38:31 --> 00:38:36

And Allah says an amazing verse. What are you clear Sahara to sand God?

00:38:37 --> 00:39:22

The Magicians were forced to go into sujood into prostration. Something a force made the magicians overwhelmed by what they saw, to the point that their minds and hearts converted to Islam, and believed in the one true God just by what they saw why the sorcerers are the experts in their sorcery. And they knew that what Musa had done was not sorcery but a miracle. And that was enough for the sorcerer as they put their heads down. And they lifted their heads up and say I'm in the rock behind. I mean, we all believe in the Lord of overworld, just as Moses is in another verse, I'm in a bit of Bihar on our Musa, we believe in the Lord of Moses and Aaron. There is no more greater

00:39:22 --> 00:39:40

proof than that. As soon as they said that before anybody could follow them and be tricked frown stands up in rage, and what does he say? He uses trickery words, color and income level Copeland as Anna Lacan. You believed in him before I commanded you?

00:39:42 --> 00:39:59

What? In other words, he said, You and Moses and Aaron, planned this before you did it, because you want to take over my kingdom. So this was a plot by you and Aaron, and Moses. And so he caused doubt in the people. Oh, so it's a plot was a concern.

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

receive it was a plan by a secret mentor the sorcerer's and Aaron Aaron because they thought he was going to be in power and they want my position.

00:40:08 --> 00:40:13

Conspiracy putting down in people, nothing new about that still done today in the media

00:40:14 --> 00:40:57

that will suddenly Benina come I will crucify you, and I will torture you a terrible torture and you will see whose torture was more everlasting mine, or the torture of this Lord, that you believed in? Who has more power. And see this was a struggle of power and authority. It wasn't about belief, and who's right and wrong. It's all the struggle of power. That's all it was. You know what the sorcerer sitting there was so convinced in their belief that the people heard this, and made some of them secretly convert secretly, they were afraid of Pharaoh. They said to Him, we have believed in the Lord of Aaron and Musa Moses, do whatever you want with us, oh, Pharaoh, torture us and do whatever

00:40:57 --> 00:41:32

you want, you will not make us convert back to Al falsehood. And truly, this made a lot of people convinced that why would they say that? In the face of torture if they weren't, they weren't convinced. These are the sources that we take as proof. And this is Faris challenging, he lost it. If it wasn't for the conspiracy, putting their heads Allah crucify, sorry for being crucified them and cut their limbs off, and they died as true worshippers and believers in Musa alayhis salam. Allah then describes he says, he talks about Janet straight after it saying that they entered paradise in which they lived

00:41:34 --> 00:41:35

happily ever after.

00:41:36 --> 00:42:14

Allah doesn't say in the verse that they he made them into paradise, but he mentioned paradise straight after their torture. In other words, anybody like them who believes in the truth, Paradise is there for it, but Allah will not forget their sacrifice and the commitment. And as I said last time, the highest form of jihad is to say a truthful word before a tyrant ruler. And Allah has given the example of these magicians. So these are sorcerers, these are magicians who are liars. And Allah says, It doesn't matter what they did in their past, what matters is now they fix themselves up and they stood before a tyrant ruler. After one says that they made he tortured them and killed them

00:42:14 --> 00:42:20

while they were saying the word of truth. And Allah says everlasting paradise for them without any judgment, or pain.

00:42:22 --> 00:43:01

My brothers and sisters time has run out it's a short time now we don't want to delay for the worshipers. There's so much to say about Musa after this insha Allah to Allah. Next week in sha Allah, same time on Wednesday between Moldova and Asia, we will talk about what happens next. Now how does fit our own and its qualities and the Egyptians respond to this great challenge. What happens to Pharaohs own wife Asya because she actually converts in secret. And there is a woman who was called the hairdresser of rands daughter, who also converted in secret. There's also a man who comes in who has converted in secret but then openly speaks to different Moses and Pharaoh what

00:43:01 --> 00:43:36

happens to him? And the children of Israel also convert to Islam in secret? But how does Musa Ali Salam deal with them? And their worship in secret? And how does he advise them and protect them? We also are going to talk about the signs that came after each other the nine signs and how they can differ and how did he respond to them and his quote is, and then the splitting of the sea and what happens to the children of Israel after the splitting of the sea. What happens to them later on in sha Allah next week, we will address these points. I thank you for listening or Salahuddin Nabina Muhammad at Osaka Japan was salam aleikum
