alaminos salatu salam ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali, he was

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

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

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

Brothers and sisters who are listening Welcome to another session of musala salaam Salaam.

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

And last week, we came to the part where there's been a murder amongst the people of masala Salaam, and they came to him and they asked, they said almost

00:00:47 --> 00:00:54

there's someone that's been killed, and we don't know who murdered this person. And we want you to please

00:00:55 --> 00:01:33

you know, find out who this is because you talk to a lot directly. So we want you to find out Now, imagine what these people are doing now is they're thinking Well, okay, fine, you know, here's a prophet, he talks to Allah directly. He just been and spent about 30 or 40 nights out there and he came and then the 70 people 70 of us went as well. And they you know, heard Allah xojo speaking and they came back. So there's a direct you know, that direct contact going there. So we asked him you Moosa, you know, just go and just tell us just go and speak to Allah and then come back and tell us who who might have the individual now, it would have been really simple for us to do that. I said,

00:01:33 --> 00:01:34

Oh Moosa It sounds so

00:01:36 --> 00:01:37

what Allah didn't do that

00:01:38 --> 00:01:45

Allah told these individuals, is he told musala Salim said, Go and tell them that they have to slaughter a cow.

00:01:46 --> 00:01:47

Now imagine all these days,

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

they've gone out there

00:01:52 --> 00:01:55

by they've been hearing musashino speak and all of that.

00:01:56 --> 00:02:02

And now he's coming back. And they hear him saying to them, this is the answer last told me.

00:02:03 --> 00:02:17

Now what was worse than that to them in their heart was just a while ago, they took the calf when he went to 40 nights. They made the calf, a golden calf they load.

00:02:19 --> 00:02:25

And they worshiped. And this was something which musala ceram found.

00:02:26 --> 00:02:33

Found absolutely shocking. And he he then you know, through Allah azza wa jal, the punishment was

00:02:34 --> 00:03:08

that those who worshiped the calf have to be killed at the hands of those who didn't worship took off. And that's what actually happened. And and this is something I discussed with you last week. Now, after that an individual gets murdered, and loses and comes back and says, Go and kill a cow, which is the mother of a calf. It's like, Huh, are you serious? Are you taking this for a joke? Like, are you kidding with us?

00:03:09 --> 00:03:37

I mean, you know, okay, fine. We understand some people amongst us worship this cough. It happened is gone. But what Allah what Allah what they want you to do you see that there's a double thing here. One of the things is yes, Allah is going to tell them and reveal to them who the murderer was. But at the same time, Allah says in the Holy Quran, and this is in Surah, Baqarah surah number two, and iron number.

00:03:39 --> 00:04:28

I a number nine, t ri so 93 Allah says Bushnell woofie coup de Mola geologica for him because of their disobedience to Allah, they they actually had deeply taken in the love of worshipping this cough, meaning that these people that they had been, they had been affected by staying with Iran and staying way under him under his power for so long. And then we're seeing him worshipping literal idols they were they were affected by so much that they could not think but worshipping an idol was something really powerful. Now that was one thing Allah is trying to tell us. And the second thing is that these people in seeing around and living with fear and fear around people, just as few

00:04:28 --> 00:04:34

rounds, Coptic people were also a rebellious people, they also had become rebellious.

00:04:35 --> 00:05:00

And Allah had to get this out of them that completely wipe out and eradicate anything of shape, or anything that was wrong and the and the disbelief and the disobedience that they had allowed to to remove that from them. Because they kept on challenging us as we go to this. Discover today a number of ways. They challenge musasa until he gets till it gets to the last straw on the camel's back, and we can

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

Most likely hit that story today as well. So this story is that and this is the sort of Baccarat student number two, number 67. And this this is why Surah Baqarah is called Surah Baqarah because of the story. And just just as a quick thing is that some people might say, Well, why did Allah start to put on with Surah Fatiha, because like, you know, a non Muslim probably opens his Quran. And then the second story or the second Surah in the Quran is Surah. Baqarah is like the pseudo of the cow. And by the time you come to the sixth surah is called to enhance the surah of cattle. And by the time you come to another 127 is to the nominal it's the surah of the end. And by the time you come

00:05:39 --> 00:06:21

to you come to 29 is uncovered, and normally is 27. And you come to the end of the Quran, you find sort of field, which is sort of an elephant and it's like, why were they named by animals? Okay, why would anyone buy animals even sooner? Number five is sort of mighty that sort of a table, a dining table, or why why did they name that? Well, the thing is, these sewers got their name from the earliest revelation of that particular surah. So what happened is, you imagine that the Sahaba with the Prophet salallahu alaihe, Salam and I have been revealed, and suddenly the Prophet sallallahu says that this is going to be part of a new surah it's going to be part of a new one. Now, the

00:06:21 --> 00:06:57

province of Allah Harrison himself did not give any name to any of the sutras he just said, Put this ayah between these two other Ayah to these set of eyes have been revealed before. And these eyes revealed afterwards, put it there. So most likely what happened is already parts of surah, Allah Moran was revealed, which is Surah number three, and sort of factor was only revealed which is Surah. Number one, and when something of Bukhara most likely This was one of the first is of Surah Baqarah that came came down. And it all it was one of the most extraordinary, it might not have been the first thing have sort of occurred, I might have been the most extraordinary sooner because

00:06:57 --> 00:07:35

actually part of the story, which is like, what, unless telling them to slaughter a cow because somebody has died. It's like, well hang on a minute, somebody's just dead, and we're going to be killing an animal to find out who killed a human being. It's like it's not making sense. So that's extraordinary. And it's truly story and you find out later on how Allah reveals the name, it's even more mind mind boggling. So for that reason, because this was one either one of the first as a sort of Baccarat kingdom, they didn't have a plan like this, you know, cover to cover printed, or written down full, you know, all completed or like what musasa lambreaux, wrote to his people, which was a

00:07:35 --> 00:08:16

whole set of plates, or tablets, he brought to his people seven to 10. And all of them had the whole of Torah written on it. And he, you know, Rasulullah sallallahu didn't come to his people like that. So they had different different parchments different different things in their houses. So when this came down, they had to refer to it by something. So how they refer to it was, well, let's just call this surah baqarah you know, the surah with the story of the cow inside it, let's call it sort of the story of the cow. And that's how he just carried on until people later on just picked up and said, Okay, that's that's known as sort of Baccarat. Otherwise, if you want to, you don't have to

00:08:16 --> 00:08:40

refer to it as sort of Bukhara you can refer to it. Whichever surah name you want to give to it according to theme, you can do that. It's completely fine. That's how some students have tunings or three names, some have five names, because different Sahaba picked up different things from the surah and said, Let's name it this and someone said, Let's name it. And sometimes they're not listening. We did this and you know, there's a bit of a dispute. So surah

00:08:41 --> 00:09:25

Nusra, in some call is suitableness writing surah number 17. And some Kali sutra, extra bonus trial. Why? Because it doesn't mention a bonus file in there and Surah israa. Why? Because it's talks about Eastern Mirage, about Rasulullah sallallahu has been going to Morocco. This is pseudo 17 Surah hamin as sajida some of call it hermina says that because it starts with Hamming and it's got a study that the beginning of the Surah Surah number 41 and some people call it Surah Surah some other surah by name sutra, Minh was also known as sort of Orpheus Alright, because Rafi thembi was mentioned the beginning and some said movement because of the story of that man who stood up to fiddle around and

00:09:25 --> 00:09:59

he tried to give him advice while being an insider anyway. So stood up Baccarat and analyzing to them to to to now slow to the cow and they said at a turkey Luna who is number 67 they said are you are you? Are you seriously taking us for a joke? joke for all these reasons like kill a cow for to find out who murdered a man kill a cow because we just worship the calf. Like are you trying to like challenges or kill a calf? Why not? We do we want to sacrifice a car for What's the occasion. So that's the news Allison

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

says Aldo Villa he an akuna ninja Helene. Now listen to his words. He says, I seek refuge in a law that I may become of those who are ignorant. Now why did he say that? Why did he say ignorant? Does that mean that Allah is going to take his knowledge away? If he asks too many questions, when he's not supposed to ask too many questions. Well, some said That's the meaning. Some said that if you if you ask a lot, a question that is inappropriate at the wrong time, wrong moment, then that means that you are an ignorant person, because you just don't have the the real respect to you know, to listen to Allah do something. Are you saying, Well, what about this robot? Are you taking this for a

00:10:47 --> 00:11:37

joke or you know, that's why the judge Allah is there. And the same thing if you um, you guys probably don't remember but if you go into the series of the analyzing the prophets, lives, you'll see that under new holla, he said, I'm no ally Sallam said the same thing. When he was no Allison was said the same thing when he asked for his, for the forgiveness of his son, his son was a non believer, and his son did not come on to the ark. And as a result, his son drowned. And no hologram was on top of the you know, the the ark. And after the ark settled, more or less, Allah made a request to Allah. And he said, our law, you know, My son, you know, his, you know, just forgive him

00:11:37 --> 00:12:20

his diet. And Allah said in the holy seminar, this is Surah, number 11. And number 46, that is not enough from your family, meaning that he's not from the family, you know, he's not gonna inherit from you. He wouldn't have inherited because he's a non believer, and so on, so forth. But in the same ayah, Allah says, Allah has anemia, lay silica be hearing, don't ask me about something which you don't have full knowledge of, in the eyes, Luca, I'm advising you know, an takuna manager hearing that you might become of those who are ignorant. Why did Allah say that? Because looking at the there's only one place on the law, only one place where we will get all the answers. And the

00:12:20 --> 00:13:00

only place where we get we will get all the answers is the day of judgment. While we're on this earth, there are certain things allow will not reveal to us. And sometimes we just have to stop asking, and just believe, listen, and carry on. You know, sometimes the young young kid, sometimes a young kid says to you, but why do I have to go to school? So you say, well, you got to go to school, because you got to educate yourself. But why? Because if you educate yourself, then you go get, you know, good degrees, you get good, good results. But why? Because if you get good results, and you can get a good job.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:40

But why? You say well, because if you got a good job, then you can have a comfortable life and you'll be you'll be okay. But why? Because that's the whole system, how it all works in this world. And that's how all of us are like if you educate yourself, you get a good job, then you get a good life. Otherwise you don't educate yourself, you end up working really hard and you don't have you know, easy life. But why say okay, send us enough, you know, like, you understand and you probably still say why this is a this is a young kid now with Allah azza wa jal if you were to ask all these questions, but why why is a lot done this what not the same things we do ask Don't get me wrong. And

00:13:40 --> 00:14:15

you are allowed and I'm allowed to ask, but there are certain things you just get on with it and just do it. Like for example, Alice told us to sacrifice an animal every single year, if you can afford it at the time of April. Okay, aydelotte How come the second outcome you have to sacrifice Daniel, if you can afford it? Okay. Now, if people say well, why Why are you doing this? You know, so many animals in the whole of the world, they will get him killed if you ask this question. So wrong time to ask a question. It's like when Rasulullah sallallahu was was, you know, when Hajj was revealed, the province Allah said, I'm just told him that now from now on this was in the ninth year

00:14:15 --> 00:14:42

of his life, he said to his companions, he says, From now on Allah told me that every year there's going to be a hedge for us, and whoever can afford it should go to you know, go to the to the house, as in, he made it clear, it's a once in a lifetime. Duty. You must do fun once in a lifetime, even though he is making it clear to them, and made it clear to them. One Sahabi

00:14:43 --> 00:14:44

said Mr. Bhalla

00:14:45 --> 00:14:56

is the only one year one year in the life for is you know, every single you know concrete on me like every year of the life

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

and that's when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:15:01 --> 00:15:44

They realize he was upset he was well upset with the question. He was well upset with this question Why? Because the province of Allah has already told them the rule. So once in a life that is for this individual is trying to get really excited and say, you know, almost like can be happy every year, we would get really excited. Can we have it every year so that we can go for hygiene, you know, roll all of Muslims go there. And the professor was upset. Why? Because if at that moment Allah had accepted it accepted his his wish, then can you imagine what happened to us every single year? Can you imagine all the rich people in the whole of the world? go to Hajj? Can you imagine if

00:15:44 --> 00:16:19

that happened, and that's why the person lost him in a rounded way told him that, you know, don't ask these questions at these times. There are certain times when you ask questions, and um, you know, especially when something is clear for you. He's told them already, it's once a year that is formed. And now this man wants to get excited and say, Can we have you like every single year it's the wrong time to do that, because Allah still revealing things he could just reveal. Okay, go on and do that. So what happened is, there are certain times when you don't ask questions, and here in animal 67 pseudo number two, allows messenger musalla Salamis saying, Look, I'm seeking refuge from

00:16:19 --> 00:16:31

Allah that I might become a giant or ignorant person, meaning that I don't want to, you know, Allah told me to tell you guys, you guys asked me a question. I gave you the answer console for a cup. Why you asking me?

00:16:33 --> 00:16:37

question why you almost acting like I've come back to you with a joke.

00:16:38 --> 00:16:43

It's not a joke. Unless tone, you seriously go and sacrifice a cow.

00:16:44 --> 00:16:56

Now, there's a second meaning of this an akuna Mujahideen. Second meaning of this being an ignorant person. The second meaning is that the more you know, the more ignorant you become.

00:16:58 --> 00:17:06

The more you know, the more you become, why? Because an ignorant person or person who does not know much is left with a lot of questions in his head.

00:17:08 --> 00:17:45

Okay, now let's let's look at it this way. When you find out something and you'd like for example, a scientist, a scientist will discover something, a scientist will say, Wow, I've discovered like the DNA. Wow, let me tell all the other scientists about DNA. Now there will be other scientists come together the DNA what is the DNA is a human, you know, for molecule water inside the body that's unique to every single human being there's a set of a fine, fine, fine, then they then they want to discover more. So they discover more than they find the whole genes inside a human being. And like, Wow, now the next thing is like, you know, if you kind of delve into is like, wow, we're gonna find

00:17:45 --> 00:17:57

out how many 722,000 or something like, wow, we want to find out each of the 23,000 or, you know, they've coded it all. Okay, they've got it all coded. It's like, wow, what happens if we turn this one off?

00:17:58 --> 00:18:06

What happens if you turn that one of what happens if you combine this one or that one? What happens if you combine this one in this human that one and that human, this one without human?

00:18:08 --> 00:18:44

Now the thing is, you can't even do that, though, you know, you you end up with further questions and further questions and further questions. And you can see this happening in science, which is, you've gone to the atom, you split the atom, you still got questions about that you've got questions on multiple, which is fine. Nothing wrong in asking, but you got to understand each time you discover something, you'll be left with a lot of questions that you just can't answer. And by the time you answer those questions, you'll be left with other questions. So before it was just science, well, first, it was just philosophy, then philosophy broke up into all these different branches.

00:18:44 --> 00:19:19

Eventually, science was an entity from science, they broke off and it became biology became physics, it became chemistry. And now within physics, there's like so many departments of physics, so many departments, you got the, on the one hand, the cosmos, you got on the other hand, you got Metatron energy and the earth and so on. I mean, I don't even know how many departments that are. But each one is still discovering, there's nothing wrong with these guys. I'm not I'm not putting this down. All I'm saying is, the more you discover, the more questions you will have in your head. And sometimes you just have to say, Well, you know what the point of all of this was,

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

was what? Like the Quran tells us the point of view going to science is that it should make you look and believe in the oneness of Allah. But if he's not doing that for you, if you carry on going to science and discover this question, it's a question that question number 10 question, the question of 100 questions. If you kind of doing that, and you never get to the purpose of all of this, then you're a giant, you're ignorant. You're just fooling about, you're fooling yourself about and that's the other Tafseer of this economic agenda. musala Some say, Look, I don't want to just totally get along with the duty. I don't want to go back and then there's further questions after that. They

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

said we'll

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

dorland Rebecca up Lana Mahi this Lola we just don't know what Allah meant when he told us to slaughter a cow. We don't know. Look, look, go and ask Allah for us

00:20:15 --> 00:20:18

to explain further what kind of cow

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

if he explained to us further what kind of account you know we'll have a better idea of what we're supposed to do. So

00:20:27 --> 00:20:39

Busan goes back he asks Allah Allah sends him back and come to his people and says in Abuja cool in Baccarat ally saying that it is a cow laugh

00:20:40 --> 00:20:56

while abiku it's not going to be too old and not too young. So you wanna you want an average age cow fat Hello moto Moto, so just please just get on with what you're being ordered to do. What do you been ordered to do? Just get on it? Is it number 68? Number two.

00:20:59 --> 00:21:17

They said Okay, so this means and I reached I reached out I was simple. My average cow is suddenly too young to oldest find an average car to the hundreds of them. 1000s of them just fine on a school trip. They said look, we want further clarification.

00:21:19 --> 00:21:24

Although Elena Botha Ilana Malone O'Hagan asked a lot what color

00:21:25 --> 00:21:26

what color

00:21:28 --> 00:21:48

to show should it be that black one? The white one the brown one and these are the common colors right? you get you get the a black you get white you get spotty you get brownish any other colors guys I missed out sorry

00:21:50 --> 00:21:56

No, no no I'm not doing this one that is different than any any other common cow that you see common cause that you will see

00:21:57 --> 00:22:05

color now I'm more or less covered them right these are the commonest 14 or you know you know different colors of these colors you find them right?

00:22:06 --> 00:22:14

They said when I said ask ask ask Allah what kind of color now guys you can have full colors of five colors a second ago how many colleges choose one you

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

know they wanted further. So musasa one came back and now Allah cha Okay, okay, you are a mess.

00:22:24 --> 00:23:02

Because Allah knew what the problem was. The problem was, they thought by making it so difficult. musala salaam is going to give up and say look, okay, okay, you guys don't want to slaughter the cow. But you want to find out who murdered this individual. And you can ask me now to ask a separate thing for you guys to do not slaughtering the capital. It could be anything. It could be given some other car. It could be like some other ways. Maybe you fast for Allah sake. And then Allah will tell you what it is anything right? You guys want me to do that? Okay, I'll go and ask a lot. They probably wanted musala salaam to get fed up of them and ask a lot to do something different.

00:23:04 --> 00:23:21

A lot. Okay, you're in a mess. You're in a mess with me as in you. You don't want to do this and you think I'm going to change the rules for you. Okay, so when musala salaam said, Manohar. My people asking what's the color? Allah said, Okay, this is the color go tell him this the color. McCracken sprawl

00:23:22 --> 00:23:48

is going to be a yellow, a bright yellow color of a cow I'm so bright and golden looking. That when the when a person looks at it, they just amazed by the golden color of this cow outlined the law how many golden cows like that bright yellow golden cows. Has any of you seen in your life?

00:23:49 --> 00:23:58

Anyone? I haven't seen one. None of you have seen one by diamond. Okay, so I lost it. Okay, you even play unit play like that. Okay, I'll play like that. Go and find that one.

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

So that's all getting a bit hard. Now. Let's try once more.

00:24:07 --> 00:24:28

To make it more clear to us we still don't know. I mean, it's got to be middle age and it's got to be golden. That is, you know, it's very sort of appetizing for the eyes to see. It's bright as you know, it will make us happy to see this is one of the law settings and number 69. But can you ask him again, further clarification.

00:24:30 --> 00:24:31

So he went

00:24:32 --> 00:24:59

and he came back now he came up with the first one was really easy can find any council trip they didn't do that. The second one was still easy, which was gonna find and meet a cow slowly and they didn't do the third one got really difficult because it's like now they have to find the golden cup but they still were stubborn. So a lot of Okay, now you want to play now give you the final card, which was they said ganas and musasa came back and he said

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

In what they said when he sent him the threat and they said in Al Baqarah Tasha Alena, they said you these these these cows they all look similar so we want something very unique that we know very clearly is that one cow he wants to see all these cows hear the song of the safe you find the Golden One say if you find the media is golden or safe you find to meet a golden ones and if you find to meet a gold one then there is a problem see we don't know what is the current number one okay number two say somebody else finds a friend one that we don't have is car one car two cars three my god they want specific one cow lesson okay? You are one cow I'll give you specific one cow you will not

00:25:40 --> 00:25:43

find another cow like this on the earth.

00:25:44 --> 00:26:25

Let's say musala salam and before this, the peoples that insha Allah does it inshallah Allah tada now inshallah by Allah Israel we will be guided Musa alayhis salam Salam goes and it comes back and says my life's a lather Lulu to fill out. It hasn't ever been lowered or disgraced in the sense that is tilted tilted the earth so it hasn't you know, plowed the fields he hasn't been on that at all while I still have no has it watered any of the cultivation was carried any waters to the cultivation nothing meaning that is never done a day's work in his life.

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

Oh, these guys are seriously messed up. Now they're going to go find all these qualities but they've got to ask the owner has your cow ever been taken to work on the fields ever? And if the owner says yes, even one day Forget it. They can take that so when they when they went around, they went around they went around and around and they looked at the look and the look and look and they found a guy finally after days and days of searching a lot okay you want to make the you and make things difficult for yourself? I'll make it difficult for you so they found finally a young man who had a cow as his pet you know like some guys that have a car. They've never taken the car out lest he gets

00:27:14 --> 00:27:23

a scratch. There are some guys that buy a car the rich guys buy a car they put in the garage they come every day the policy they look at it

00:27:27 --> 00:27:33

Yeah, and all they want to do is like sit inside rev the engine system engines off get back

00:27:35 --> 00:28:16

that's my beauty. That's my beauty they don't want to ever take it out Why? Because the moment they take it out on the street someone might scratch them I scratch my bumper. Oh my god I can't I can't even see that there's my car when people call i'll just show them that I've got such a car. So this young man what he did is he had this cow when this cow was born this cow was a golden cow. He thought wow this is my treasure This is my you know some people are collectors. Ito This is going to be my prize anyone ever comes to me I'm just going to show my cow just grazing in the you know, inside the barn that I've created never gone out to do any work. When they came knocking on this

00:28:16 --> 00:28:44

man's door, and they say have you have you got a cow's head? Yes. And you got a golden cow for any reason? Yeah, go Yeah, can you show them they looked at it Tasuku novoline made their eyes filled with joy isn't the color was so bright. Nice. It really made them love just looking at that cow. Has this cow ever gone out there and work? He said No, never. Never. No. They said okay, now Could we please buy this car? No, it's not for sale.

00:28:45 --> 00:29:01

It's not for sale. No way. I don't care how much you pay me. I'm not gonna give me this cow said no, no, we need to buy this cow. Please. Please, please. We can be serious trouble by this cow. He said No way. No way. You got to take this cow.

00:29:02 --> 00:29:36

So they start bagging Lola will give you double the money. double, triple quadruple, okay, give me what you want. They bargain and they bargain and they bargain this man and the boy said look look no way just get out of that. Oh no, don't sell this. There's a look we will give you this much gold coins and no until he said look, if you ever want to take this carrier. The only way I'll give this cow is that you weigh my cow with gold gold just filled with gold on one side of the scale and put my count yet on the other side of the scale. And if it matches that much of our goal, our kekkonen

00:29:38 --> 00:29:40

they went back and they thought oh my god.

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

And they said what? There is no way this guy's budging. And they said the only way we'll get back out is to bring all the gold if God put it on scale and wait and they came back to us on a boat or DC Psalm day for a wall. These guys have accepted it. He was just throwing it in there.

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

accepted so the way the cow will go, and he gave happily that cow away, I took all that gold for himself. They bought the car back to musala salaam. And they thought, okay, here's the cow alone did all that for what? For absolute nonsense. Why? Because Allah never made that difficult for them, they made it difficult for themselves. What is Allah teaching us through this particular story? Because now they're about to slow trade. Okay?

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

Let me let cooking, reflect on and analyze the second Why is Allah saying to us through this? You know sometimes in Islamic law, you can make things simple. And in sometimes in Islamic law, you can make things difficult. And sometimes what people do is they make difficulty for themselves. Well, law Hey, my brothers, what I'm going to say to you is this that sometimes I look at some law, not all of law, no, some laws are there. And I'm not going to give you names of any mud hubs or any groups or any fear or anything, because otherwise, I'll probably get shot by a fatwa God in Assam geyser. So what I'm going to say to you is that sometimes you look at where we've ended up and what

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

we're doing. And then you kind of think, well, how did the Sahaba do that with the promise of allowance? And and you look back in no way? No, they had a different society? it operated differently. And we want to say, No, no, no, no, no, we cannot be like them, you see, because we are in the age of

00:31:33 --> 00:31:40

we are in the age where there's too much evil around us. And because of that you have to be different.

00:31:41 --> 00:32:21

And people accept it. And people carry on and they and they make their lives welded into a way. I'm not going to give you any examples, please. Because at the moment, I'll give you an example. And don't even ask me a question, for example, because there's movies out there weigh in with fat to fill Kalashnikovs weigh in for you to say something about the background? Yeah, I'm not one to two. They'll they'll bombard you. So the thing is, that How did this happen? How did the Muslims end up like this in some quarters, because they imposed it on themselves? A lot of us had that seriously. Allah never said some of these things in not saying all the laws. And guys, please don't don't try

00:32:21 --> 00:32:46

and make your own examples up here. I just want to give you the example like sometimes when they were Muslims make it and they say, look, we've got to do this for this reason, do that for this, do that for this reason. And then in the end, it becomes so alien to what Rasulullah sallallahu has had in Medina when the Sahaba you kind of think, well, it was so easy that time. I mean, I'm sure they had fitna their time, and you telling me they had no fit at the time? Are you telling me that no evil at that time?

00:32:47 --> 00:32:52

And then you know, Muslims say no, we got to do like that. Why? Because my chef said,

00:32:53 --> 00:33:01

my chef said, my phone sauce adapted my chef. And me. And the five of us are going to Jana, would you like to join us?

00:33:03 --> 00:33:14

Come on, guys, are the 50 overs of the 500 hours or the 5000 hours, I don't care. It's like, you know, we've got it, we've got it all sorted, I believe so and all of it. So a, you know, please, this is it.

00:33:15 --> 00:33:49

And, you know, you kind of think and you read Surah Baqarah. You read this, please. And you think so and that is why I'll give you another I'll give you another example that's very close to this one, which is, you know, the yahood some of the Jewish people, some of them in Medina, they came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And they had to do a test to see if he is the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So they came to him and they asked him, a couple of them, maybe two or three of them, they came to him and they said, if you are a true prophet, okay, so what happened is that there's two generations of the either they asked it, or what happened is that the Moroccan people came from

00:33:49 --> 00:34:13

Makkah to Medina, and they said, Look, we've got we've got this man, calling himself a prophet. So you you guys are Jews, and you know your Jewish people, you've got your you've got your Torah, and you know better than us, okay? So we want you to give us few questions that this man, no way will he answer, unless he's got the why he comes down to him.

00:34:14 --> 00:34:51

Okay, unless he's got the way down, coming down on them. And they said, Okay, we'll give you three questions. Don't ask him. If you can answer these three questions, that without any Jewish person, any person from the amygdala, go right up to him, just ask him the question and see if he gives the answer don't get like don't give me a chance to like intermingle with other Jewish people, other Christian people just see what he answers and if he answers you the right question, then he's gonna he's gonna have way So one of the questions was about the the people of the cave, asking who the people of the table. A second question was, asked him who was and the third question was asked him

00:34:51 --> 00:34:54

about the rule. The third question was a trick question.

00:34:56 --> 00:34:59

If you had answered it and gave a definition of the roar of the soul

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

And how it is and all that, then he would have failed this test. But the first two was proper questions. There were questions that he could give a proper answer for. And he gave those two answers. One was about the people of the cave. And another one was Luca. Now I don't want to get into the whole story. But what happened is when he gave the story of the, of the people of the cave, naturally, people did want, especially some of some of the Jewish people with some others, they started to say, Well, you know, the whole story was said about the people of cave is a very simple story boys, they stood up against the king who believed in himself being a God, and in the end, they

00:35:38 --> 00:35:53

fled. They found a cave, they they slept in there for 300 years, and then they you know, there was a dog at the mouth of the cave, and then they came out and then they realized Subhana Allah made asleep for 300 years, okay, when we thought it was only half a day. So then what happens? This is the point of it.

00:35:54 --> 00:36:42

And number 22, student number 18, Allah says, say abou Luna aletheia to grab your home kalba home, some will delve into the matter and they will say those three, three boys and the fourth was the dog when a coruna home Sutton said is to home kalba home and some will say that there were five boys and the six was the dog. And we're calling a somato feminine Calhoun Some will say there was seven boys and the eighth was the dog corabi Allah will be added to him nyalam Mila Colleen, tell say that my lord knows better about the about the you know the whole counting and how many they were? And only a few No. And then he says this fella to mad if he is in Amira en la hora de la testa. tiffy Minam

00:36:42 --> 00:37:28

ohana Rasulullah sallallahu most Tolan every Muslim reading this story was told one thing while a customer if he had don't ask any of the Jewish people about any of the numbers about these people, why? Because it's complete nonsense. It's not going to get you anywhere in knowing those details. So one of the things that you can see which I'm trying to do is in this series, I'm trying to stick to whatever sources we can rely upon. The Quran is one source we can all rely upon, and then some Hadith and so on we can rely on which is fine. If you go into some of these stories, you'll find some weird things are said seriously, and they've got some weird you know, you know, like Hocus

00:37:28 --> 00:38:14

Pocus kind of stories I'm not giving you any of those. And and there are there are a number of Muslims who love these Hocus Pocus stories they're more like out of the world that like Suba Han Allah Subhana Allah Giza Listen to me there's a story that's true here in the Quran this listen to it is straightforward Why go into these other stories during son? So the whole point of saying this all the story is for us not to go into the same matter and delve into in a way that that is that is going to bring us no benefit. Okay. So now they start with the cow. And Allah says feather but who has Womack hallelujah follow they finally slaughtered it but they were not going to do it. As in

00:38:14 --> 00:38:34

they didn't have a true intention to do it. They were in the end force to come along and do it anyway. What then happened is musala salam had the cow in front of him slaughtered cow they said what do we do now? He said Okay, so now cut the tail of the cow. So the cut the tail of the cow masala Salaam said okay. Now

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


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

part of the

00:38:40 --> 00:38:47

tail, which is the know the cow and go on strike the deceased with that tail.

00:38:49 --> 00:39:01

Go on, strike the disease with that tail. So they had the disease, they took the tail and they struck the disease and the disease was dead. Dead.

00:39:03 --> 00:39:19

He just got up alive in front of them. He pointed his nephew and he said he killed me. He murdered me because he wanted to inherit my wealth early. And then the decision straight back

00:39:20 --> 00:39:45

in delegate Allah so this happened and it's all explained in a number 73 of surah baqarah and that's how they found out the third person who was Madonna you can see it's a it's a story which is you know what an Aladdin says in between? Well, he says Cavalli, can you level Mota. This is exactly how Ally's going to bring the dead back live again.

00:39:46 --> 00:39:59

Which tells us a lot and if Allah wants to bring any debt backlog, and this is a clear value, we believe this actually happened. There is no doubt in it whatsoever. So anyway, this is a story that's gone by

00:40:00 --> 00:40:16

After yc each time a bit of time goes by, what they do is they keep on coming to musallam. And they and they start saying things like, no, we're not happy with this. We're not happy with this. We they eventually said, they eventually said and this was striking.

00:40:19 --> 00:40:23

They said, This Torah, we don't want it.

00:40:24 --> 00:41:14

We want something else. But how do you do this? Allah sent you a book revelation from this guy's, for you that musasa number, this is number 93. student number two. And they said Musab low, we they said Sanjana, wildfly now they said, Look, we've heard you but we're going to disobey you openly. They said to musasa openly. That's when Allah azza wa jal he lifted the whole of Mount to from his place. And he bought the hole of Mount to over these people. Whichever group of people they were that said to musallam not believing that Allah bought the whole mountain above the head, we're very far away from Mount Oh, and literally the mountain was above the heads, there was a great shot of

00:41:14 --> 00:41:31

them and it was dark and they all they could see the light around the bottom of the mountain. And Allah then says said to them, Do you now accept, do you obey or disobey? They said, Samir,

00:41:32 --> 00:42:01

we know we, we've heard this how we do, we are very pleased alone, we definitely wait and they beg for last forgiveness. And then Allah azza wa jal remove the mountain put it back in his place again. And they were okay for another good few days. They gave him more trouble. See, one of the troubles they gave to him and this is in the gay person to musala salon was a personal thing they said to masala they start saying that you know, Musa whenever he has a bath, he never comes in front of us.

00:42:03 --> 00:42:10

He don't bathe with us, he based on his own secret all the time. See, we never get to see mooses body.

00:42:12 --> 00:42:52

And rumors spread. And in the end, they start to spread the rumor. They said, Look, you know what, you know why he doesn't show his body to us. Because there's something wrong with his body. See, there's some illness that is God and there's something on his body, maybe it's whiteness, maybe it's something that would be ugly. If we were to see his his body. That's why he never bathed with us now. Why did he do that? Why didn't he ever gone bathed with them? Because he's a prophet alayhi salatu salam and he's good always for a person who's the teacher who's a role model who's the in a head and so to stay satanist in a slightly separate that's what

00:42:54 --> 00:43:05

I'm you stay with you people but you have your own private times as well. And you do your own things, you know private things to your private cell. And you know, they made this horrible room about about musala ceram and

00:43:06 --> 00:43:54

Allah azza wa jal wanted to you know, prove to them that there's nothing wrong with Mozart I said I'm so this is this is I mean, the whole story you find it a seed of the poor and sue them the 33 I am number 69. Yeah, you and Edina mn o O you who believe a lie saying to us Lacuna Coil Latina either Musa Don't be like those who gave trouble to moose Allah, Allah. But Allah then cleared him of the mischief that these people had created. And the and the hurtful things they were saying about him. How what happened is musala, Salah went to base and he took up to a private little pool to base and he used to put his clothes on to a rock that was just on the side of the of the, you know, place

00:43:54 --> 00:44:01

where he just used to go down a few steps, have his bars and then he would go back, take his clothes from the rock and then wear them and go back to his people.

00:44:02 --> 00:44:17

This is this is a hadith in Bukhari. So what happens is musala salam has put his clothes onto the rock, and then he gets into the water, he's having his bath. And then Allah says to the rock, a rock, move, run, run with his clothes.

00:44:18 --> 00:44:25

So the rock moves on the ground with the clothes musalla Salah musallam, sees that his

00:44:26 --> 00:44:27


00:44:28 --> 00:45:00

comes out in the water and grabs his stick, and he starts to chase the rock while he hasn't got any clothes. And he runs at a distance. So this is from a distance from bonus rain, where they're just sitting down and then suddenly they see a rock running along with clothes. musala salam and Moses behind he says stop, stop, stop where you are. And obviously saw his body and they thought Oh, so he's got an okay body's got a very

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

Nice bodies actually completely fine fit for a good person now and a lot that's what a lot to do to make it you know to make it easy for the imagine a lot told musala San Antonio people are saying this about you you probably would I just you know, roll the sleeves up and say which one of you is saying this about me and you know so Allah wanted to show them right down as in you know, there's nothing wrong with his body and he chased the chase the rock finally Allah said to the rock stop, and it stopped the moose Allison and grab his clothes, put clothes on, took his stuff, and he beat this rock. He beaten so badly left Denton there. Okay, so this is again, the Sahih Hadith that we've

00:45:42 --> 00:46:06

got in our tradition to tell us about this incident. But what you can see is these people, there are people who just want to question and question and they just want to just get to you know, you start questioning for whatever sake just just just question and make life difficult, even a life difficult for themselves. So what's another incident that happens? musala salatu salam

00:46:07 --> 00:46:54

is taking you know, he's finally Allah azza wa jal says to him that look, I'm going to give you the best place on the earth, for you and your people to make this place. I have blessed it all over many properties that have come before you They have also been displaced. So this is the place plus many kings that I've I've created. Many kings I have created, and many others who are the greatest of this of this world, they have loved this place as it is as a central place. But most most most likely, it wasn't for just the Kings sake the most it was for the sake of the of the Prophet sallahu wa salatu salam ala Allah said all of this, and what Allah was, as I was, I was telling musallam was

00:46:54 --> 00:47:43

that you pick now from your people, 12 leaders. And when you pick these top leaders, you will go with them to this place. What is this place, this place is Jerusalem. And this place is the actual compound of most of the upside that we've got today. So that compound, that whole compound, and that whole land around it, this is the land that Alaska was talking about. So musala salam is now ready. He then chooses 12 members. Now these 12 members, he gives them specific orders. Okay, this is in Surah number five, and number 12. What bathroom I'm in homeless now Sharon Akiva makalah who in Lima Kamala said that look, I'm with you, as in these were the specific instruction they got line item to

00:47:43 --> 00:48:14

masala if you establish your prayers, because they have prayers as well, what are they to mazurka and you also give you the kind of just on the prayers part. If you go to YouTube, and you just try and search for prayers of some Jewish people like Muslims, you will find that some of the Orthodox Jews still pray almost exactly like us. They've got Roku, the Bosu, dude, they sit down. In fact, they've got to do almost like us. In fact, these Orthodox Jews, the women come back exactly like a women.

00:48:15 --> 00:48:40

Some even with the full niqab as well, Orthodox Jews that still do that. And this was the Mousavi original, original, you know, religion that allows given an over time you know, they started to dilute and dilute and dilute now you have so many sects within them. So Allah Azza wa Tatum is aka if you give us a call to medicine, if you believe in all my messages was up to him and you give them support when

00:48:41 --> 00:49:21

you also spend in the cause of Allah loca Shira Nan come say it come I will, I will forgive your your sins. Well, Janet and I will also enter into gardens, beneath which are our rivers that are flowing and so on and so forth. Allah gave this instruction. So musala salam, according to some testing, this was this is when musala salam had to go to Jerusalem with his people. And according to some This was afterwards Okay, so there's always sort of a collapse in some of these capacities. So musasa takes his people now he's going to Jerusalem This is going to be the Holy Land which has been blessed for them and they're going to you know, make it their own land.

00:49:22 --> 00:49:59

And after everything else they did all the disobedience that they had in the past a number of disobedience is that they had an each time you know, if you remember like counsel or one by one in the beginning of Surah Baqarah he says, you know, you people were your sons were slaughtered then I saved you from around. Then after that you you disobey it again and then you know, remember the Thunderbolt destruct them remember the plague that struck them remember when a lot, you know, kill 70 of them and then he brought them back alive again, because they disobeyed remember what they said about human Torah and all the disobedience is and the ones that I talked about today. So in the end,

00:50:00 --> 00:50:40

They make their way towards this land and they come there. Okay, and he said musala salaam gives a speech. This is student number five I number 20 with palamu salako me remember when musala Sam said to his people yeah tomakomai people will Guney amatola Allah remember the gifts of Allah azza wa jal upon you in geography Colombia that Allah has made so many prophets amongst you, what Allah kulu can Allah is going to make you the kings of this earth and he's going to give you the reins of this earth. Remember I said about the you know, this is a place where you know kings would want to be this this is it as in Allah is going to give the kingship to these people to rule over this land.

00:50:40 --> 00:51:28

What are Takuma lamb? You mean Allah Allah, Allah has given you people that which is never given any other people ever before that many gifts allows and given what are the gifts that I gave that was so great that he gave the malice trend to an another part of the Quran. And that will explain to us the gifts. So Allah says Surah number 45. Item 16 what are called attina Benny is trying, we gave to the people have been trying, we gave them a lucky tab we gave them the book we just talked about while hochma we gave them profit we gave them a way of making the right judgment. Okay, they were people who were really clever, they knew exactly what kind of judgment they need to make. One Nobu we gave

00:51:28 --> 00:52:06

most of the profits in the in the monster people what is up now who may have regained the most of the beautiful things of this earth, like that man, Nawaz Silva, they had that food that they could just eat, you know, they didn't even have to do anything, they had the food, but then, you know, they got fed up of it none law said or done. I mean, we gave you 15 thing. So number one, kita the book croakin a good judgment that they were there. They were clever people because they were an even today we know that the most intelligent people, one of the most intelligent people you can find on the earth. Allah gave that to naturally he gave number three prophet who many prophets are amongst

00:52:06 --> 00:52:51

them, what are the phenomena? Most of the good things of this earth like you know, most even have the wealth and the dignity and the power and all that Allah gave to them unless it were done. I mean, number five, and I made you supremum over all of the people all over the world. All these things Allah gave to them. So musallam mentions what he gets you know these gifts and look what Allah has given you. Then he says yeah, whoa my people, all the Hulu, audible mocha de su number five and number 21 all my people enter this holy city holy ground and Lottie Khattab Allahu hula come the one that Allah has prescribed for you. While I do holla at Vatican Don't, don't turn around

00:52:53 --> 00:53:16

on your heels mean don't don't turn around 180 degrees and come back fatale boo ha Celine you will come back as losers. Now when they got there, they were outside of the gates of the of the city is noble and blesses it and we know how blessed it is and hamdulillah the opportunity of visiting AXA honestly

00:53:17 --> 00:53:23

Honestly speaking, there's a few places in the whole of the world that is as blessed as that place.

00:53:24 --> 00:54:09

And I'm not just saying this, you know, I've been to Maccabi to Medina I've been to Knox as well. Not Not long ago. But you know when you go to X r, it is an ancient city. The beautiful thing about upside is that they left it like an ancient city. And Jerusalem is an ancient city. You actually go back like two 3000 years back, you go 4000 years back when you when you go to city because of the way that the whole city has been left it's been preserved. I wish they had preserved Makkah and Medina the same way. I would have loved to go to a Medina which wasn't marble rollover, which had the alleyways that the Sahaba used to walk down that was it was it was nice to walk down. I would

00:54:09 --> 00:54:42

love the Medina which had the old sort of you know, breaks even till even till 1984 Most of it was preserved when they had the king Fahad expansion in Medina that's when they broke most of it Medina is something unrecognizable from his old pictures. Okay, even till 1984 most of the yard yard season you Bill inside his house was preserved. And then they demolished all of that

00:54:43 --> 00:54:51

what am I just a marble sitting I just got the only thing that really gives you the spiritual thing is when you go near you know and even then it's been a bit

00:54:52 --> 00:55:00

you know, it's like we obviously you know, we go there not that we're going to do any better, but we find that the out of the place the whole

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

Land is blessing because of Rasulullah similasan body being inside there. That's the whole point why Mr. Malik said that Medina is greater than Naka

00:55:09 --> 00:55:31

now there's a whole debate is Makkah better than Medina Medina better Makkah and there's loads of debates well Mark has got to be better because he probably when I said on came they smile and again the Kaaba is there, blah blah blah. Was there why he came there? bla bla bla bla bla no Malik says at one point he says no, Medina is greater than Makkah. Why? Because Medina has the blessing the body of the prophets of Allah Allah. So let me inside.

00:55:32 --> 00:55:36

Okay, now of course you go there today you try to talk about these things a bit.

00:55:37 --> 00:56:03

Okay, so anyway, my point is that that place that where Rasulullah saw was varied and you know, that place where you've got the place where he lived his life. That is the place that gives you this this is great, you know, spirituality that otherwise without that would just be another city without resources Amina without the Sahaba been buried there. It would be nothing. You'd be just a normal city. Yes or no guys. Any other city, right. So

00:56:05 --> 00:56:14

what I'm trying to say to you is that Oxfam is very, very blessed in the sense that so many messengers put the foot on that place.

00:56:15 --> 00:56:32

Amazing, amazing, including Rasulullah sallallahu. Okay, we'll talk about this whole whole thing about access some other time. But anyway, he's telling his people go inside the now before they go in, he sends a few, you know, the center, very few feelers like people go there, they assess the situation, they come back.

00:56:33 --> 00:56:53

So some of them went there. They looked at this, this inside of the city, and they saw big, tall, well built men, they were almost like giants. They were like, you know, there are tough, strong, great warrior type of people inside there. Were not many of them. There were a few of them.

00:56:55 --> 00:57:16

Now, they came back rushing to musanze and musala. Alexander said, there's a problem. What is the problem? He said? They said that the Java the giants in their will come by giants. Now musallam said that is all in it. Number 22 of sudama ada surah number five.

00:57:18 --> 00:57:25

They said in Atlanta, Hola. Ha ha ha you know, we're not going to go into that holy land until they leave Oh

00:57:26 --> 00:58:09

my god, how did they leave? If you don't get up and do something about it, if your land has given it to you, these people are tyrants there. And allows Allah just told you just just just do what you're supposed to do. Like they're always disobeying musala salam they said fine. Yeah, who do you mean have I know that you know, if they just leave themselves and we'll just walk inside there. We want it as easy as that. Next III number 23, Colorado salon in Manila de those two men who fear Allah azza wa jal, amongst the 12 that Allah had appointed the top leaders out of them two leaders stood up. And they said that these two leaders a lot of favored them, they said Oulu, Allah, He will just

00:58:09 --> 00:58:31

bless all walking through that gate. These guys, you gotta understand the maths of this. When you got, let's say, 789 12 I don't know, there might have been 2024 30 I don't know 4050 100 of them that make strong men when they see two 3000 people walking in what they're gonna do.

00:58:33 --> 00:59:10

But then we're gonna run. And that was exactly musala as Elena said, Just walk in there, they will walk out it will be yours as how he said you don't even have to fight these. These two people they stood up they certify that the how to move who find nothing hollobone. If you just walk in there, you will be superior to them. They won't be able to fight you they'll have to run while Allahu fatawa can come to mean and just have some faith in Allah if you really are believers. The rest of them the 10 leaders and the people behind them they said yeah Moosa

00:59:13 --> 00:59:28

hula ha, Abba, almost Ah, we named Virgo a Virgo inside their Abba enter my donkey as long as they inside there. So you do us a favor.

00:59:29 --> 00:59:53

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

This ayah This is I'm saying to you, they're also in the Torah

01:00:06 --> 01:00:30

about this whole incident and the two peoples you know, standing up they've even got the two names in the Torah. I'm not interested in the names, but we interesting is is what a lie is trying to say to us. Now this was the last straw on the camel's back with all the disobedience because they had disobey them disobey the discipline now the things are you are logged on Friday when I walk in there

01:00:31 --> 01:00:43

so musallam he raises his hands towards a lighter rugby law I'm lucky enough to live no power to make anyone do anything except for myself and my brother

01:00:46 --> 01:01:37

This is a land between Mr. Egypt and Jerusalem so land somewhere in between there. What happened is musala Salah went with them in that land. And they spent the 40 years these people 40 years not knowing which way to go because they just kept on losing the direction and the Tafseer of that I'm going to give you next week what happens in this 40 years.
