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

Have you ever been okay?

00:00:16--> 00:00:25

Before we begin today, we have some good news. A new member of the human race has joined us in Islam. His name is John, are you John?

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

So they want to come up here for a second place.

00:00:30--> 00:00:34

If you don't mind, I'd like you to come up because you're a little bit like my son.

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

Very similar. How are you?

00:00:38--> 00:00:38


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


00:00:42--> 00:00:45

I put John on the spot, I don't like them. I know.

00:00:46--> 00:00:50

Just it really, everybody's really excited. They're very happy when they hear about someone converting.

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

So John, when did you Sunday?

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

Last Sunday last Sunday, I wasn't sure how old he

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

and I shall look.

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

Did you convert here?

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

So everybody witnessed you?

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

Did you see a sea of beards looking at you funny.

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

They come up to hug you.

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

How'd you feel about that?

00:01:16--> 00:01:19

Masha, Allah, John, welcome to Islam.

00:01:20--> 00:01:24

Brother in Islam, of course. And you can keep your name John if you like.

00:01:25--> 00:01:37

Some names the Arabic Quranic word is, you know, do you know what it is? In Arabic if you wanted to go for the quarter anything meaning of John is Yeah, yeah means the one

00:01:38--> 00:01:38

who was alive.

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

John Cena Malik Please enjoy.

00:01:45--> 00:02:03

And have a good allow. So that was slowly learned either early or something you want Manuela brothers and sisters. welcome back today insha. Allah, we're going to talk about part eight of the story of Moses, Our Lady Sudan, and a little bit of what happened after the story of Musa alayhis salam.

00:02:04--> 00:02:37

Within a few weeks, we'll, we'll be reaching the profit. Yeah, here, John. So hope, Michelle that John will come back and share her line a couple of weeks. Talk about that profit when the time comes. So right now we're going to talk about the price of the story of Musa Ali's center. So brothers and sisters just to take you back a little bit. So you know we're we're up to Musa and her on his brother, both prophets of Allah and messengers of Allah, Moses and Aaron. Just as in the, in the Bible, the Quran also states that Musa and halaman

00:02:38--> 00:03:23

were in the land of last word, in the Arab in the Quran, in the Arabic language is called a look at the length of last word. And is that length were the people, the children of Israel, they will approximately 700,000 in number. And they were made up of 12 different tribes. Their names are similar to the ones that are in the Bible, the Quran doesn't mention their actual names, not as the Sunnah. So there's no problem in going for the biblical name of these people. In fact, today still, in what we call philosophy in Palestine, the the Zionist, and some of them the Jews who live there. They named certain cities after the 12 tribes that came from

00:03:24--> 00:03:32

the children of Jacoba. Lee said and later on, brothers and sisters in Assam, so in that land, adoptee, the land of last foot,

00:03:33--> 00:03:37

it is the land somewhere in between Jordan,

00:03:39--> 00:04:21

Jerusalem, Egypt, a landing that they were lost in, and they didn't know how to get out of it as a punishment from God from Allah because he ordered them to enter the holy land Jerusalem and they refused. And they said rude things, such as, oh, Moses, you and your Lord, go and fight, we are going to sit here we're not going to move even though the last time that I said to the editor, he said to musasa I'd say to them just enter the door and it is yours. If you enter it, Allah will give you victory over them. And Allah wants to change your state from what your worst slavery and oppressed under Pharaoh to a new beginning, but they refuse Subhanallah so almost kind of have to

00:04:21--> 00:04:50

hide it decided that they're going to be lost for 40 years. The question that we asked last time, why 40 years? Why that number? Well, there's nothing specific or special about the number 14 as some people may assume. Nothing can help. But as soon as there's anything special about the number 40 However, 40 years was the approximate time Allah knew that that generation of the children of Israel, that corrupt generation that was not ready yet to enter Jerusalem and lead.

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

They're going to die out

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

or they're going to get very old or they have they're not going to have much of a say and a new

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

generation will take over a young generation who was a bit more open minded with the with with the new teachings of Musa of Moses and hold on a little bit better than the older generation. So Allah subhanaw taala told them you're going to be lost in the money can't go anywhere because you don't belong anywhere at the moment you can't not in your state, not in your mental state and in a way that you are your heart. So you still got the old traditions in your old beliefs about the pharaohs kingdom in your hearts and you don't know what's right from wrong and not even ready to accept the truth. Only a few of them were on the righteous path and even those who are unrighteous path. We

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

said last time that they even

00:05:37--> 00:05:41

know they also disobeyed because they read the thing they repented.

00:05:42--> 00:05:52

And you will find the word in Nakata and call in Medina head. Those who did something called had an Arabic word.

00:05:53--> 00:06:40

And a lot of Arabs misunderstand the word handle here to mean the Jews of today any award. So those of you who know what I'm talking about, you've heard of the word the award and handle in the Quran, they are two separate meanings. How do has nothing to do with the Jews? hurdle? Someone who had and someone who has a yahoodi are two different things. Very important to understand. Yeah, who would develop out of the children of Israel later on, after Jesus Christ after His ideas. It was a strand that came out from one of the tribes are two of the tribes of the children of Israel. And they went beyond the karate and started to change it and made their own belief systems. Today the Zionist sin

00:06:40--> 00:06:59

in, in Palestine. They're, they're not the children of Israel that follow the Messiah cylinder restrained the winner straight. And they also have their own belief systems. You know, some of them don't believe in the hereafter. For example, they don't believe in heaven and hell, that paradise and Alpine,

00:07:00--> 00:07:44

but the Orthodox Jews, many of them may have come from the children of Israel, but they're also Christians, whose ancestors have come from the children of Israel. And there are also Muslims in the Middle East whose ancestors come from the children of Israel, the children of Israel are people like the Prophet Musa, how to use of yakugaku with Israel, meaning Abdullah, the slave of God, the servant of God. So don't mix children of Israel with a juicer today. And don't mix the word handle with the other word. Okay, those of you who are more into who've been Muslim for a while you would have heard these words, the word handle in the Quran means those who repented. Those who returned,

00:07:44--> 00:08:05

it's actually a good word. It's a praise. It's a it's a last month as commending them. So more Sally said when he was standing on the mountain, and the 12 and the 70 of the righteous of the Jews went up the children of Israel so I shouldn't say Jews they're not the Jews the children of Israel then went with him and they said we want to see God with our eyes in the hospital made them die and then raise again.

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

Musa Salim said Oh ALLAH in now, wouldn't that be like our Lord, we have returned to you.

00:08:13--> 00:08:51

So the word hello and wouldn't it be nice to return so in other words for Toba repentance don't mix the two My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam okay. So yeah, what what is the total new belief that developed after Jesus Christ from Australia, the children of Israel, but not all the children of Israel, Al who want to they want Jews? Judaism cannot lay the letter for the children of Israel have no have no, they have a connection with the Jews of today but not only with the Jews of today, they have a connection with so many different people their connection with Christians, they have connection with a lot of Muslims, but did not carry the bloodline of the what the Jews claimed

00:08:51--> 00:09:19

today. So I need you to understand that very careful Insha Allah, we honor the children of Israel and Israel himself who existed at the time of Mossad so now except for those who disobeyed him and went astray, because he is a prophet Musa and our Prophet heard that Israelites they are not Yellowwood Is that correct? So that is to to show how to make this important point. Brothers and sisters so now they're in the middle of the last word.

00:09:20--> 00:09:28

And we spoke a lot about it and now I come to the final story I want to tell you that happened there and I think a shallow you get a lesson out of it. Well, there were in demand the last word

00:09:31--> 00:09:37

and then from among them was murdered. A man from among them was what? murdered

00:09:39--> 00:09:53

and they said to Musa Oh Musa help us to solve this mystery. In other words, let us know who killed who murdered this man. We have a homicide on our hands.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

So sadly, sir, he asked Allah subhanaw taala to help me

00:10:01--> 00:10:06

This is a sort of Bacala by the way, it's a long verses, so I'm not gonna recite them all they're very long. Some of them are a page long.

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

So a lot of hard data tells us the story of this strange

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

commandment that came to them about slaughtering a cow.

00:10:17--> 00:10:23

That's why sort of the Bekaa, nice, the chapter of the cow. And the main story in there

00:10:24--> 00:10:27

is this one. And abakada means the cow.

00:10:28--> 00:10:32

The word dogs are in Arabic, means

00:10:34--> 00:10:46

to, to slaughter, to actually immerse a nice date and then go sideways. Bacara because babies are known to be slaughtered for food, and it was called Bukhara.

00:10:47--> 00:10:50

So Allah says to them, is battle battle.

00:10:51--> 00:11:06

Slaughter, a cow. Musa Santos now Solaia helped me to find out who the person who murdered the victim. And Allah said to him, go and tell the children of Israel to slaughter a cow.

00:11:07--> 00:11:16

He didn't tell them that if you slaughter a cat or solve the mystery, he didn't tell them. If you slaughter the cow, you will find out.

00:11:17--> 00:11:33

He didn't tell him what the solution is yet. He didn't tell them how to find the killer. before Allah told them to find the killer. He gives them a test. He wants to teach them something and I'll explain to you why. He says, Tell them to slaughter a cow.

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

Why a cow?

00:11:38--> 00:11:42

We all know that the children of Israel, where did they come from? Where were they saved from?

00:11:44--> 00:11:55

Ancient, the Pharaoh. And what did we say last time? They didn't eat Pharaoh. In first Kingdom they worship so many gods. Is that correct? Do you remember I mentioned that they worshipped

00:11:57--> 00:11:57

a buffalo

00:11:59--> 00:12:00

made of gold.

00:12:02--> 00:12:06

And they also worship a cow. female cow made of gold.

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


00:12:10--> 00:12:18

Sorry, I said buffalo I managed a calf and male calf made of God and the female cow that was bigger.

00:12:19--> 00:12:55

Now we've already dealt with the story of the calf. Remember, they worshiped the calf and almost accidentally destroyed it. Then K now and another type of cow, the female cow and it's bigger and nicer. Why? Because with the children of Israel, when we're in Egypt, there was also this superstition of a female cow, a big female account that had godly characteristics. It was sacred. And people thought they did not allow their daughters gold monuments out of it, and you're not allowed to touch it.

00:12:56--> 00:12:57


00:12:59--> 00:13:44

In the hieroglyphics of Egyptians in the pyramids, you'll see these images, different animals. Among them is the calf cow and serpents and wolves and foxes and all those different things. So more Sally's Sana tells them you must slaughter a cat. To them to slaughter a female cow meant bad luck for everybody. It meant that they're going to be smitten with some kind of punishment that will say in them like a curse forever, than allowed to touch this sacred cow. It took from the Egyptians. So Allah subhanho wa taala, first of all want to tend to break this belief, this false belief which they had in them, because it was making them move away from God for the one true God to worshiping

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

created things.

00:13:47--> 00:14:14

And when you worship creative things, you start making up your own religion and when you make up your own religion start to stop people and you start to mislead people. And corruption exceeds, because you don't give it to the one true God to make the laws. So Allah wanted to break that belief in them. It's a slaughter account. Now they knew what Mossad is meant. He's trying to tell them okay, all right. So you think

00:14:15--> 00:14:29

that we believe in the ancient religion of the pharaoh that this female cow is still like something special to us? So he's their reply to him was like this hard look at the hippo Now who's the Where

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

do you take us for foolish people?

00:14:34--> 00:14:39

What now you're, you're saying stuff as if you're walking us because you think we're stupid.

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

What are you trying to do?

00:14:44--> 00:14:48

It's easing us now because you think we're foolish. slaughter a cow.

00:14:50--> 00:14:55

Musa alayhis salam replies by saying, God I want to delay an opponent and God.

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

May Allah protect me from being among the ignorant ones.

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

A prophet does not mock people. And a prophet does not

00:15:06--> 00:15:11

take advantage of people's ignorance, they understand their needs.

00:15:12--> 00:15:21

And Muhammad called Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, whoever, for example, learns the knowledge. Whoever this is heavy, he said that ever learns knowledge

00:15:22--> 00:15:23


00:15:25--> 00:15:36

to sound superior to the ignorant, so you can sound more knowledgeable and wiser and better. Or to debate the scholars

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

for the purpose of ego,

00:15:41--> 00:16:25

then let them preserve that place in the fire. That's not no matter how much knowledge you get even as good if you do for the ego, or to be superior, you are nothing, you are ignorant. So Musar is Sam is saying, I am not one of hers. I don't take advantage of the ignorance, I am telling you exactly what your Lord tells you to do. slaughter a cow, now obeying Him because in other words is telling them in brackets, Allah must know that you might my people have still got a problem in obeying your Creator, even after all these miracles. So he wants you to slaughter a cow and then he'll tell you what else to do. So do as you have been commanded.

00:16:27--> 00:16:31

So now the children of Israel they go Alright, alright. Alright. Okay, okay, we get what you mean.

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

Alright, look,

00:16:35--> 00:16:49

can you describe this cow a little bit more to us? You know, like just a cow it? It doesn't sit right with us. Subhanallah the fact that they asked, Can you describe the cow more

00:16:50--> 00:17:33

is exactly the point that Allah was making to them. Number one, you guys are still got the superstition about old beliefs still in you. Otherwise, why would you hesitate to slaughter just any cow if you weren't still scared of superstitions which are turning away from God. Number two, you still are not ready to submit to God after all this moderator being still don't acknowledge Him as the supreme God after everything has happened. And if they proved his point by saying tell us exactly you know what kind of account many cows look the same and all that there's just many cows. So in other words when he has to be special cow is sick as a result of the old belief from he has to

00:17:33--> 00:17:36

be special, not just any cow if we want miracles

00:17:38--> 00:17:47

so then it goes back and almost nothing tells them tell them that is a bright yellow cow when anyone looks at it

00:17:50--> 00:17:54

that is attractive. It's attractive to look at and it's bright yellow.

00:17:56--> 00:18:19

So then they go back and they said Omorosa there are many bright yellow cows and attractive so we don't know which one exactly asked you a lot to pinpoint to tell us even more. So it goes back and Allah says tell them it is a female cow it is bright yellow. It ever looks at it finds that attractive

00:18:20--> 00:18:35

last year that he had it has no blemishes or any kind of other colors or dots or deformities in its entire body. absolutely brilliantly yellow all over

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

they said oh more so keep on telling us we don't know where to find that give us more descriptions and then Allah setting them okay. After all that has to be the after all that it also has never grazed. It doesn't come it has never cloud is never worked in, in farming. And it has been fit very well. And unattached and lift to grace.

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

And then they that's when they said to him COVID will earn as it

00:19:05--> 00:19:26

now yeah, what is the truth? What's this? He tells me what slaughter any cattle? Come on, man, it's gonna be a bigger miracle than that. Until they reached a type of cow that is so unique and special for them to believe and obey Allah Subhan Allah. And it's like us today for example, sometimes this happens.

00:19:27--> 00:19:36

Allah tells us why don't you look at yourselves and everything around you. Does not everything around you which I created. prove to you

00:19:37--> 00:19:55

that I am the creator. So worship me. Yet you still doubt? Look at yourselves Do you not see look at the heavens do you not see? Look at the earth do you not see look at look and look. Yet some people they still want something special out of this world.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Even though Allah has already created everything around us, there is already a

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


00:20:01--> 00:20:05

The fact that we breathe air is a miracle. Now fingerprints are a miracle.

00:20:07--> 00:20:41

And Allah says, and how many signs in the heavens and the earth do they pass by and turn away from miracles all around you. But no, the human needs something special. The human cannot worship God, it's got a statue in front him, it's got to have a symbol in front of you got to do something outrageous something out as well. Even if they're an atheist. They still believe in star signs that matter, your body's got to be something with it, it just makes a bit of science for them to make a little bit more logical, but we know the truth, it's still superstition. That's the human Subhana. Allah wants us to be free of all that. Anyway. So now they said, now you have Subhan Allah, that

00:20:41--> 00:21:20

cow, I don't know if this is authentic. But it says in one of the narrations, the historians say, commentators will first say that the cow belong to an orphan whose mother was old. And they had this cow that was inherited from his father. And his father had requested up before he died, no one touched account was grazing by itself. And they offered to buy this cow off this orphan, and the mothers and he said, I need to ask my mother. And his mother said to him, tell them that I want them to weigh the cow and give me its weight in gold. That's the only way I will sell to them. And that they did that. Right. So it also tells us that look, when ALLAH SubhanA, Allah commands us something

00:21:21--> 00:21:22

or guides us to something.

00:21:23--> 00:22:01

Just don't keep sitting there, hesitating, and asking too many detailed questions. Unless you don't know. But I mean, you know, some people that are six are questions to get out of out of duty. Right? They get added duty, or in order to just argue so they can lose the conversation. Right? Some people, they don't want the truth. So they'll pick up on some question and they take you around in circles, until no one knows what they were talking about anymore. Children do that all the time. As teachers, we see our students do it all the time. They're guilty of something. And then it asked him the question and the question. So can I go to the toilet? No. Why?

00:22:03--> 00:22:39

Because the teacher system is not enough. But how can you let someone said, I didn't want him and I let them they were in need. So they weren't in it? How did you know they were in the army? How do you go on it? And then they start asking all these questions, just to one, change the topic and in the end to get what they want. So that's what it means when it was time to highlight that tells us Don't ask too many questions to argue. Like something is clear. Don't keep trying to wiggle out of it. That's why people with a lot of things. It doesn't mean to ask questions that you know, it means to ask questions in order to argue and to move away from the truth and get what you want to follow

00:22:39--> 00:22:56

your desire to say, I suppose the next set of questions. And that's what they started doing. And Allah says the more they asked them, the more they tried to wiggle around, the harder the duty became, the more difficult their life became, the deeper the hole start getting dug up. Right.

00:22:58--> 00:23:00

So my brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:23:02--> 00:23:47

they got the cow and they slaughtered. Now what? Nothing showed up, no murderer showed up. The victim is still dead. And this shows us that the last month I didn't tell them to slaughter the cow as a method of how to find out who killed someone that's absurd. Okay, a lot of the same sort of things. He told us that occur for a different reason. And now you know why? It was something the problem in their own belief system and their stubbornness. So a lot of the time it said to more set now, get the deaf person, grab a bit of its meat, the meat of the cow, a dog who is removed will be about behind.

00:23:48--> 00:24:10

Like, hit the dead person's body with some of its meat. Again, this is not a method. But Allah Subhan Allah is doing something special for the children of Israel, again, commanding him to do something that seems illogical to them. But what's logic is that they have a messenger of God. They saw the miracles before everything's clear, and God is telling them to do that. That's all it's needed to be said.

00:24:11--> 00:24:23

The rest is known to go to Allah. How much do you trust? The luck helps the availing How much do you really believe in him? How much do you really believe that he knows everything? Or do we ask too many questions

00:24:25--> 00:24:54

just to wiggle out of it. So Allah says, Okay, hit him with his bodyguard, another test. You start off with the first one, I just want to recount you've made life difficult. I'm gonna give you another test, just to make sure that you guys have learned your lesson, get a bit of extreme hit the body. But this time they learned they didn't hesitate. They didn't ask more questions, because they didn't want to get into more problems. So go on to our article here with this book, even if it doesn't make any sense. So they hit the body with its meat. And Allah by His willpower made the man become alive again.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

Allah can do that. Is that correct? Yes or no? Do you

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

Believe that? Do you really believe that that alone can resurrect the person? Have you ever seen in your life? None of us have ever seen it. But this is the test. Do you believe that Allah God, the Creator of universe can resurrect the person after death.

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

And that's something you got to ask yourself really.

00:25:17--> 00:25:33

Now, if Allah, if you're a bit in depth, then Allah tells you, if you're in doubt, and the Quran says, Put in could override him in a battlefield, tell them if you are in any doubt, that God cannot resurrect you, then remember

00:25:34--> 00:25:36

that you were nothing before.

00:25:37--> 00:25:39

And then you became into existence.

00:25:40--> 00:25:57

Remember, you were a fluid, and from that fluid, you became who you are. So how was the heart of God? To take you out of something that you're turning to back into the life again? What's more difficult, bringing you out of nothing? Or bringing you out of something?

00:25:59--> 00:26:14

bring you out of nothing, nothing is more difficult. Allah brought you and I am nothing. Before any what I mean by nothing, Allah says, weren't you at one time something not even worth nothing to be mentioned? I mean, before you were born before you I can see by a mother, what were you?

00:26:15--> 00:26:27

I don't know. I can't pinpoint what you are. So Allah says when I'm existence. So remember, he said, just like that I can resurrect you again. So no doubt, Allah says. So he lifted the dead.

00:26:28--> 00:26:48

And he pointed it to the man who killed him. Apparently, I'm not sure this correctly ended up being his nephew. Or there's something about inheritance want to kill his uncle in order to inherit, he had no other siblings or parents and so on. So he pointed who killed him and the story and said,

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

That's the lesson.

00:26:52--> 00:27:14

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, something amazing structured straight after the incident, he says, su Mufasa, Kulu Bukoba many body that ik after that test your hearts or children of Israel, the majority of you only went to harder and more stubborn.

00:27:16--> 00:27:43

And then Allah says, there are so stubborn and so hard, even more than a rock. And then Allah says, and even the rock, water can pass through it. Have you ever visited these places where you go into a cave, and you find there are beautiful images, and solidified colors that look like snow?

00:27:45--> 00:27:59

would have been like driving this drive whatever. Over time, it turns to beautiful colors. And you know, drops of water have gone through that cave over 1000s of years to develop this beautiful image and who has seen anyway, the point is

00:28:02--> 00:28:13

last minute dinosaurs, even rocks water can get through but there has to count even harder. Why did their hearts become harder after that test? Simple. When a person is a hypocrite,

00:28:14--> 00:28:27

you're a hypocrite. You don't want to know the truth. You want to live by what makes you feel comfortable. And that's it. The moment someone puts you in a corner and shows the truth right before your eyes.

00:28:29--> 00:29:09

The hypocrite doesn't like it. So instead of submitting the hypocrite becomes even more hating, more stubborn, more, full of pride, more argumentative, because they didn't get their way. And so Allah made revealed for themselves among them, why they didn't deserve Jerusalem. Why they were in demand of moshood why they haven't learned the lessons, right? There's a problem in their house simple lesson of slaughtering account and and hitting it with a need for that person. You didn't want to do that. So what's the problem with your house? What's the problem with you facing the truth of things? What's the problem with you accepting God really, after all this?

00:29:10--> 00:29:11

You understand?

00:29:12--> 00:29:16

So my brothers and sisters in Islam, Allah save us from being hypocrites.

00:29:17--> 00:29:20

Then after that, Allah subhanho wa taala.

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

I'll just give a quick example of something here. They didn't obey Allah immediately. Now, in our time, for example, I was gonna die Allah says alcohol is forbidden.

00:29:31--> 00:29:37

Because the because it's harmed outweighs its benefit. Gambling is forbidden because it's harm that was its benefit.

00:29:38--> 00:29:39


00:29:40--> 00:29:54

Having intimate relationships outside of marriage is forbidden because it's halfway is very harmful to you. And it's a terrible end, such as abortions and diseases and STDs and STIs and AIDS and HIV, and so on.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

And on and on things which God forbid for us, I believe are true

00:30:00--> 00:30:24

Believe in God, what question why is the difference between asking why for wisdom so you can understand it better if you can, and the person who questions that because they don't like it, the questioning it to, to water it down. I want to drink alcohol, I want a coke I want to go out with girls and boys, I want to go with this and I want to do hard on things I want to move on to steel, right? So I start to water it down.

00:30:25--> 00:30:45

So Allah is gonna die that tests us like this and says, Listen, if you believe in me and you know that whatever I forbidden or commanded you, it has to be good for you that I commanded you or I forgive you because it has to be bad for you and you believe that you'll stay away from it. And when Allah sent down the verse and put out a ton of Muhammad Sallallahu Senna, saying to

00:30:47--> 00:30:51

stop drinking alcohol, to stop drinking alcohol.

00:30:52--> 00:31:03

Slowly, Allah said, first of all, don't approach prayer while drunk you can drink after prayer. And then afterwards when I got used to that, gradually, Allah said Stop Drinking Alcohol, you would see

00:31:05--> 00:31:29

the companion said you would see the streets of Medina because was defeated in Medina, the streets of Medina just with alcohol spilling everywhere, as if there was a minor flood happening in some places. Everybody through that whether there was companion components were drinking when the verse came down, and I spat it out within an even swallowed

00:31:30--> 00:31:35

and even some companions, when they first came down there just swallowed the alcohol and it's not vomiting.

00:31:36--> 00:31:59

You see that the obedience to Allah what it means and how you trusted him really, truly, this is true belief. So rather than Sisters in Islam, this is a lesson for us. Next, what happened? The children of Israel I lived there for two years and many of them died out. Some of them grew too old until they had no more energy or power or mean, you know, meaning to sort of lead or talk anymore.

00:32:01--> 00:32:13

During that time, both the correct opinion is that both Prophet Musa and Prophet heard when I have a seller died during the time of the 40 years of the lost most of the land in the land.

00:32:14--> 00:32:48

Most of the seller died at approximately the age of 120 years old and of course with the greatest story of it as heartless historians, Muslim historians, and how that is done live a little bit longer often. But they both died before entering Jerusalem. If it is a great story, it is actually of the opinion that more salicin we've done in the 220 years but he lived on after the 40 years and entered Jerusalem with the children of Israel. But the majority of historians and scholars say no he died in abducted in the land of lawsuit. How did you solve this term die.

00:32:49--> 00:32:52

There's an interesting Hadith which is in Sahih Muslim

00:32:54--> 00:32:55


00:32:57--> 00:32:59

it's an authentic hadith that

00:33:01--> 00:33:10

or is in behind, it's an authentic hadith, that prompts are lots of a lie or send them said, when he was tired from Assad he sent out to die in

00:33:11--> 00:33:14

a mob sent to him the Angel of Death

00:33:17--> 00:33:18

to take his soul.

00:33:19--> 00:33:26

Now from the context of the Hadith, it looks like the Angel of Death came in the form of a human being.

00:33:29--> 00:33:43

For there were only twice when an angel came in his true form. And that was at the time Mohamed salah, Salah was up once on Earth. And once the Netherlands in a sovereign models every other time angels always came in the form of human beings.

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

And Musa alayhis salam saw him

00:33:49--> 00:33:57

when he saw him come towards him the Angel of Death came to kill no size and I don't know how but also realize that he's going to come and kill him.

00:33:58--> 00:34:05

So Musa alleges the Hadith the Prophet, Musa alayhis salam punched him so hard on his eye,

00:34:06--> 00:34:07

that he

00:34:09--> 00:34:11

that he destroyed his oil, because oil

00:34:13--> 00:34:23

that's the Hadith processor, which is authentic and the angel of this return and said, Oh my God, you have sent me to a slave of yours who doesn't want this.

00:34:25--> 00:34:30

So Allah said to Jay Angel of Death, go to Musa and tell him to place his time

00:34:31--> 00:34:35

on a buffalo that has the thickest,

00:34:37--> 00:34:44

thickest hairline. And I will give you for every thread of hair under his paw one extra year to live.

00:34:45--> 00:34:51

So they run these parts there were another 2000 hairs are going to dazzle us.

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

So the Angel of Death returned and said to him, your law tells you to do that. And it will Sally said upset and then what will happen on

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

After that, the Angel of Death said, and then death, like everyone else on the alarm list. And then Musa SNM said, well then I welcome the decree, Oh Allah, I accept this now and return it.

00:35:16--> 00:35:19

Now there's no doubt about this hadith being authentic, but how do we explain them?

00:35:20--> 00:35:30

First of all, the scholars said a number of things, I'll just give you the end result of my research. What I think inshallah is the best answer.

00:35:31--> 00:35:40

Number one, either the Angel of Death, Musa Hassan didn't recognize Him to be the angel of death, because he came in the form of a man.

00:35:41--> 00:35:49

And when a man comes to kill you, you have to defend yourself. So Mossad is Salah must have defended himself, which is no problem.

00:35:51--> 00:35:57

Other scholars said no, he knew that it was the angel of death. But two things,

00:35:58--> 00:36:02

how much someone I send them told us no profit.

00:36:03--> 00:36:13

No profit dies, before the Angel of Death, gives him an option of living longer or dying. Now.

00:36:14--> 00:36:46

This is an authentic hadith from fossil Asada, every prophet before they die, the angel of death, must ask them by the command of God of Allah, if they choose to live on a little bit more or die now. Why? Because messengers and prophets had a duty to convey to the people. And if it was in their wisdom, that they see that their people need more data than it would have been in the color of Allah, that they're going to ask for living more in a model with at least a little bit more. But no prophet ever asked to live more.

00:36:47--> 00:37:37

And they said, Musa alayhis salam knew this. And the fact that the angel of death did not ask him the option you can to take his life before giving him his right. It angered Musa is another the Angel of Death had done something wrong. Now scholars said the angels don't do anything wrong. However, the answer to that is moosari Senate had a strong and tough personality. Canada had the problem comes last and I've said that on wall so that the angels of greed said that Musa had a tough and sharp personality. He got angry quick, when the truth was presented as someone disobeyed the truth. So before the angel of death even spoke to Musa Musa set up, assume Daniel, this was not

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

going to ask him, so we hit him as a lesson for him.

00:37:42--> 00:38:28

Now, Allah then obviously replaced the eye of the angel of death in the form of a wave we don't understand, because in the Hadith, and Lusardi, salaam, when gentleness came to him, and now gave him the option of living or continuing, then it was I said, relaxed, and he felt his honor being given by a Westerner data and his right as a prophet. And he said, now, now you now you can take my life in the true form, I choose to return back to my Lord because He wants that honor of choosing death to make a larger than life in this world. And that's a virtue in itself, where persons choose Allah, instead of the worldly luxuries. So Allah knows best, this is authentic. And this is what

00:38:28--> 00:38:30

happened to Musa Allah is

00:38:31--> 00:38:34

Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Then what happens?

00:38:36--> 00:38:43

Allah sent another prophet to the children of Israel while they were in the last woodland.

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

His name was

00:38:48--> 00:39:04

you shall even known in biblical terms Joshua. Joshua a prophet. Now isn't a hadith you Sharpeville? No. Joshua, the son of noon, he is from the descendants of Prophet Ibrahim Anissa.

00:39:05--> 00:39:15

He was an apprentice to Musa Ali salah, and it was as I've taught him, and then afterwards and how was that Allah appointed yuusha Joshua to be the new prophet.

00:39:18--> 00:39:34

And it was with him that he led the new generation, the second generation, after the other generation of the children of Israel, and they entered Jerusalem Finally, he led them into Jerusalem and they conquered

00:39:35--> 00:39:36


00:39:37--> 00:39:54

the can the kind of hiding in the Canaanites, the giants that lived in Palestine in Jerusalem sorry, Jerusalem is a bit different to Palestine Palestine is bigger Jerusalem, the Holy Land the holy city, that which they entered into and Allah gave them authority over

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

the characterizes the Giants. They went out and they don't like it.

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

ruling of this kingdom, and they went out into other parts of the city but they were not exiled.

00:40:07--> 00:40:19

You shall. And then he said, he made an order in the land. He divided the cities into 12, dependent based on the names of the tribes of the different tribes of the children of Israel.

00:40:20--> 00:40:44

And every in every city, you shall put a judge one judge that anyone has to do, to rule by the Torah, by the Torah, anyone who goes against the laws of the Torah that this judge at this court will rule according to the Torah 12 different cities, and you shall have a son that oversaw that all these judges did their role.

00:40:46--> 00:41:01

But you shall was not a king. He was not a ruler. He was not a president. He was not a Pharaoh. He was just a prophet, who had a duty to make sure that the people followed the door

00:41:04--> 00:41:07

you shot in his van died.

00:41:08--> 00:41:25

But within that time, before he died, there were many battles between the children of Israel in Jerusalem and the people surrounding them. They had many many battles hundreds with the Canaanites they kept coming back to the Babylonians, all the people surrounding them because they all wanted the land of Jerusalem

00:41:27--> 00:41:41

and we fought with them and let them in that way when a new shot is sent and dark and then Allah said other profits after profits after profits the only two that are mentioned to us during that time in yes and in USA.

00:41:43--> 00:41:46

In yes and yes are sometimes also called ESC

00:41:47--> 00:42:03

alias and Elijah in the Bible in Yes. The only thing mentioned about him is something good in the Quran was perfect. Remember, remember in the book Yes, he was one of our actual service

00:42:05--> 00:42:11

some narration says that in yours was set to people in Lebanon, who's from Lebanon in

00:42:12--> 00:42:20

Lebanon. Okay, so in yes is our man he's the one from Lebanon. And he went to a specific place called Baalbek anyone from Baghdad here.

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

No one from Heidelberg.

00:42:25--> 00:42:26

You from?

00:42:28--> 00:42:29

from Somalia.

00:42:31--> 00:42:32

You're on the other side.

00:42:34--> 00:42:54

We are going to give you a yes, you get your own profit. My brother. We all believe in all the profits, you know what I mean? Profit as went to volleyball in Lebanon. And that's all that's been said about it. And there was a USA after him. And there's nothing mentioned about him except that he was a prophet. Then on the last panel with the ARIA sent

00:42:56--> 00:42:57

something amazing.

00:42:59--> 00:43:00

You shout

00:43:01--> 00:43:07

out to him came another prophet. And the narration says probably his name was probably Shem when

00:43:09--> 00:43:10

I didn't know the biblical name.

00:43:14--> 00:43:15

Shadow Ed.

00:43:16--> 00:43:42

That's the one. And the quantity is that there was another prophet among them. And the children of Israel, they had become a little bit corrupt and weaker. And they weren't able to fight off the people too much. And I was starting to divide. So then they said to their Prophet, maybe we'll share much and when he's not mentioned his name is not mentioned in the Quran. It's just called the levy, a profit. We don't know exactly what his name was, could be somewhere. And the children of Israel said to him,

00:43:44--> 00:43:45

Prophet of Allah

00:43:46--> 00:43:49

it is time to bring among us a king.

00:43:50--> 00:43:56

Our people that are wicked have divided we need a king to rule us. That's the only way that people can work.

00:43:57--> 00:44:05

And so he went and Allah said to him, this is also sort of bucket oh, by the way, I'm just saying quickly, he said he said to them,

00:44:06--> 00:44:08

in Allah.

00:44:10--> 00:44:15

Allah Kajal Toyota water mannequin.

00:44:16--> 00:44:26

Allah has chosen to allude to be your King, who is thought through it in a biblical terms is called soul.

00:44:28--> 00:44:29


00:44:30--> 00:44:32

of the hotel solid Queensland the real Sol

00:44:34--> 00:44:37

Sol was followed in the Quran.

00:44:39--> 00:44:42

And this man, he was a bustling

00:44:43--> 00:44:46

and he wasn't wealthy with money.

00:44:48--> 00:44:52

And not a very big deal to everybody like you didn't have a big status in the community.

00:44:54--> 00:44:58

So the children of Israel said to him, What doubled

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

out of all

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

people among us followed.

00:45:02--> 00:45:18

He has doesn't have a great name and reputation among us. What can you do to salmonella, notice even have enough wealth like it's not even an important person when wealth is not a aristocrat, he's not a entrepreneur, he's not a powerful man is nothing.

00:45:19--> 00:45:26

So Allah told the prophet to reply to them, this is what it required. He said, in Allah

00:45:29--> 00:45:30

Xander, who

00:45:31--> 00:45:41

busts cotton finger at me when Jason, your Lord Allah has increased, or what is made him more superior than you in two things.

00:45:42--> 00:45:46

With knowledge and wisdom, he's got more knowledge and wisdom than all of your

00:45:47--> 00:45:52

knowledge and wisdom than all of you. When you listen, and his body

00:45:53--> 00:45:56

is big, he had a very big frame.

00:45:57--> 00:46:13

And that without luck, it does have an effect on the people. When you see your leader walk in, and his massive, something about you, makes you submit a little bit, withdraw a little bit. It's called an aura.

00:46:14--> 00:46:36

Although it had an aura because of its size. Now you might say, well, since we only choose leaders who have bigger muscles, maybe we should hit the gym and go to the gym and find one of those leaders. They're big boys. No. The children of Israel, their nature required a man that was big like that, because that's how they were. So a lot chose bado because he was compatible

00:46:37--> 00:47:16

with what they needed. Knowledge and Wisdom because they were ignorant a lot of them big body because that's where they're respected. They didn't want to enter Jerusalem because they were big people in there remember? So Allah sent them Pato is a big man. And the people they're gonna fight. We're also giants. They were big people. So when they saw God being the king, he's a big man. They equated him with the NBA, they have big as well, we have, oh, we can, they felt more powerful having and this was the wisdom of Allah touches, told, wisdom and knowledge number one, and big in body. And he was obviously obviously God fearing. So then they said, Well, how can we believe you? Oh,

00:47:16--> 00:47:27

Prophet that by what is really the key? I mean, this is big stuff, we're gonna follow him. So Allah said to him, tell them, I will bring you a miracle as a sign from God.

00:47:28--> 00:47:29

They said, what's the sign from God?

00:47:31--> 00:47:49

He said, Allah says, He will bring you the Ark of the Covenant. What is the honor of the covenant? You may have heard of it. The Jews of today pride themselves too much with this word, the Ark of the Covenant, the other we ever watched a movie called The Raiders of the Lost Ark,

00:47:50--> 00:47:53

Indiana Jones, long time ago back in the 80s.

00:47:55--> 00:48:31

as possible with the benefits in the A's, Indiana Jones, it's all about the covenant of the ark, the ark, you know, whoever steals the first who was trying not to let the Russians steal it. So they, they have some powers. So the Covenant, the Ark of the Covenant, and what is it it is basically a chest and they say it was made out of gold, Allahu Allah, which they built to the children of Israel before in the length of mustard. And after Messiah is set on died, he plays well before he died, the place that the scrolls or the the heart, the blocks of of cement with the Torah are good or not.

00:48:32--> 00:48:49

All right, they will place in there. And also, as Allah says, about pedia he has written minutes from the children of Israel and the Prophet Muhammad Musa. So I think it had his staff to stick, it had some clothes from Saudi send me some other artifacts, and they looked at it as holy.

00:48:50--> 00:48:54

What had happened to the Ark of the Covenant is that they had it with him and during the battles,

00:48:55--> 00:49:30

what one of the enemies had stolen the Ark of the Covenant away from them. Why? To make them lose morale. When they took the Ark of the Covenant away from the children of Israel, because they had they have to attach to it, they lost morale, they thought, we're not going to win, we're not gonna we're not gonna get a picture from God because we lost the Ark of the Covenant. And this is a wisdom from God to take away something which they put their trust in, when they should have put their trust in God, when you put trust in something. This is vulnerability, the enemy's took it and didn't know where it was. So he said, I'll return it back to you by the will of Allah. They said, it's a great

00:49:30--> 00:49:59

miracle, the best miracle. And suddenly before their eyes, they saw angels, what they didn't see the angels they saw invisible beings bringing the Ark to them. I don't know it was flying or coming to them. And it landed back in Jerusalem without anyone knowing and they had the Ark of the Covenant back. And so they accept that followed Saul to be their king, and now we're hesitant about Subhanallah we're still hesitant. This is his hypocrisy when you

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

Like he's not, he's not firm,

00:50:02--> 00:50:10

although that tells us the story, thought, oh, so he was commanded by God or the Prophet, that he must take the people

00:50:11--> 00:50:27

to fight the Canaanites, the giants that were still attacking them in jurist and outside of Jerusalem, the Philistine. In fact the word Philistine is in the Old Testament and the New Testament philosophy. It was never called Israel

00:50:28--> 00:50:28


00:50:30--> 00:50:36

gobbled soul wanted to give them a little test. Now, before I go on, how much time do I have?

00:50:38--> 00:50:42

Two minutes. That was quickly getting an answer quickly, I better hurry

00:50:44--> 00:50:57

up a little bit, I'll finish in one minute insha Allah continue next week, bola puts to give him a test. He said, we're going to cross a river, I think was the river of Jordan. None of you is allowed to drink from the river.

00:50:58--> 00:51:05

And even look back once you pass the devil back and then drink from the river except one harmful just for your energy.

00:51:06--> 00:51:48

Allah says the majority of them drink from it, except only a few abating. Subhanallah he wanted to test it and so they were exiled the night from fighting because they were not faithful enough that we're going to ruin the whole army. And he took the most righteous among them, which were less than half of them. When they reached the enemy, there were big people. They got scared. So Talaq stood up and he told the government Hey, I think careers in Hollywood Theoden Cathy rotten Bismillah Don't be afraid. Recall how many small armies have become big armies before but with the will of Allah had was tricks together unite together remark Allah and don't worry about your numbers go

00:51:49--> 00:51:57

and from among them came a huge man from the enemies is then in the Bible was called Goliath in the Quran is called Jiang.
