Musa and Harun part 12
Okay, we spent
a lot of last minute sort of cinemagraphs even I want to read them
early he said I want to come around.
So we've more or less come to the near to the end of Sally's story and with all the different paths that he's been in, in terms of the poor and what he teaches us and his story in a kind of a whole episode of chapter by chapter incident by incident and we got last week to the story of Musa and Akita.
Now, there's a couple of things I'm going to talk about Musashi there.
And then we'll talk about the end part of Musa alayhis, salaam, life. And we also want to tie in with many references that have been made in the Quran and a bad reflection on what we actually are supposed to think about. Because there's the most extensive of all the different prophets that have been mentioned in the Quran is masala ceramah. The big reason for that? Okay. So, what we begin with is with moose and Haider,
both these individuals were very, very close to Allah azza wa jal, and he gives favor some knowledge which she doesn't give musasa. So if you go according to the scene of one being a prophet, and what not being a prophet, so hidden, not being the Prophet, or musallam, being the Prophet, what this means is that a nonprofit individual had specific information from Allah, which musala said and didn't have, okay, we accept that. And we accept the fact that, you know, sometimes Allah can reveal to some of his close servants things he doesn't reveal to sometimes he may not reveal to a prophet or an abbey. Now, yes, every Navy or every profit is still greater in status. Because if you look at
the knowledge of Mosul, Islam is much broader, in the sense that musala salam knows a lot more in in many, many, many different areas. But specifically in the area that it's to do with, you know, matters that Allah is telling whoever, you know, whoever is around was telling killer or the alarm or whatever you want to put next to his name, what he's doing, Allah azza wa jal gives him specific knowledge of what to do in a, in a given situation where there is future knowledge which no other human would know, but that is given directly to him. But with that, obviously, like I explained last week, there are deficiencies and the deficiencies would be that the way musasa is able to operate by
being with with a lot of people and being able to guide them and being able to have the amount of support that he has displayed because there's perhaps no one after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam that has had to take pressure, as much as musala.
The amount of pressure, because Muhammad Allah Allah has and has taken the most pressure, and that is that is in a hadith and so on. But next to him comes you could put musala his salatu salam. And one of the reason one of the greatest pressures that he had was from his own people. Like if you look at all the other prophets, that amount of trouble that a Prophet would have faced from people who are supposed to follow him. From all the people if you look, there is no one next to musala Islam in that, because even this Omar when the Sahaba were around the province of the loudest, and they didn't give him as much as a hard time I know Rasulullah sallallahu Hardison got a very hard
time with the disbelievers of his time. But Rasulullah sallallahu, risen in terms of his own people, the Sahaba, who believed in him, or even if you want to say that there were some hypocrites, you know, around, he did not get as much hurt from them as musala salam got from his own people because his own people questioned him again and again, his own people always, you know, thrusted him to one corner with a question or another corner with another question. And there are a number of specific things that allow us to teach us as an owner through these stories. And before I go, delve into other matters, we want to look at the story of musante that just once there's a few specifics, so
one of the one of the things is that the third part when there is a war
now that he alone he decides to mend that wall.
He decides to mend that wall and musalla Islam says, you know, why did you mended that wall? According to some tough say? Obviously, as I said to you last week, it's the it belongs to some orphans. The welfare is Anita those treasures that belonged to a couple of orphans in the city. And it says what kinda abou Houma salejaw the the father was a righteous individual. And being a righteous individual, Allah decided to save the treasures through this strange man who would come and mend the wall so that it folds in a time when they're when these orphans have grown up and ready to take the wealth. Now, what they have said, is that this this thing of their father being solid,
and the father being righteous, was it the immediate father, or was it the father beforehand, so you find two different durations in the tercios. One is that it was the immediate father that I left him as orphans. But another one, which a number of mufa sirona had chosen is that it was the seventh generation grandfather who had made grandfather.
So because of his duar, seven generations ago, and that's a long time, if in 100 years, you get three, you know, members of a family in there, then if you look, you're looking at about 200 years before this individual 200. And let's say 10 or 20 years, before these two orphans, there was a pious person who made draw, and because of that, they actually got the benefit of that. Now, what we learn from this is that the MBR links that are ceram have taught us the Quran teaches is this Also, many of the prophets have said including Ibrahim Alayhi, wa sallam, they made it hard to say Juliana whenever they made draft for children, they didn't say Allah Dena, Allah means my immediate
children. But they said, Leah, Tina, now literally, I can I means my progeny and all the seeds that will come after me. So it means my dry is for all the children, the children, children, children, children, children until the day of judgment, I'm making God for all of them. Now, this is the kind of data that we should make. And I'm going to give you a
a couple of references from the Quran. So if you want to make further yourself, you can make these bars
so one place we have in the in the Quran is in
one place that we have is in Surah number 14 surah Ibrahim, sort of one four and number four zero environment as salam says rajani mapy masala tea woman Lee he says Allah make me a person who establishes prayers and my progeny my seeds meaning until the day of judgment, all my children are born our to humble da Allah our law, you know, except my, my daughter,
our daughter was because he was making with a smile alehissalaam and another piece is in Surah number 19 surah number, sorcerer con and it is an eye number 74 and number 74. And this one specifically tells us that
sort of photons are a pseudo number 25
to 30 number 2519 the use of the Quran and AI number 74 allows which tells us to make a door opener hablan I mean as Georgina will get in a kurata unit
in a moment. So again, unless teaching us to have a pious family and how to have that Allah says I asked this hablan I grant us of Allah mean as vergina from our spouses, meaning husbands or wives, make them what do we add in and all our seeds are going to come all the progeny that will be born from this, make them the apple of our eyes or as Some say the coolness of guys, whether or not in Turkey mm hmm and make all of us those who are the leaders of people who are conscious of you. So again in the annual fund Leanna come in again again. And the other factor is that in the in the story of hidden in the third incident, so the third incident and the second incident. So if you look
at the third incident, it was the wall and Allah says wacana Abu masala, that because the father was someone who was pious that children or if it was the seventh generation grandfather down the line Allah makes the children get protected through righteousness. And if you look in the second incident, which was the killing of the of the child on the seaside, Allah azza wa jal says in Isaiah number 80 of surah number one eight, he says FACA Ababa who me name
Both of the parents of this child were to believers, and because of their belief. So basically, because of their belief, Allah decided that he's going to take this child away in early age because this, this child will grow up and will will really rebel against the parents and in fact, will dominate them with his coup for his disbelief, and will hurt them through his disbelief, and that will become a burden on him. Now,
both these incidents tell us that he was a man, or he was good actions that pay off for tomorrow in a way that we don't even comprehend. So this is the main point that I want to say, Do you mean hydrolyzes, for loan, what Allah said in the Holy Quran in many parts is that there are a number of ways I help you, and I do things for you, which you don't even know. And you will never be able to calculate how I helped you. I mean, how you feel like, even when Allah punishment comes, sometimes doesn't mean hate to lie, or Sharon, that without even them even realizing how my punishment came, my punishment does come to certain people. So this principle teaches us that the actions that we are
doing today will have an immediate effect on our children and our progeny tomorrow, and how these various hobbies Look, it says,
it says, a full time fantasy.
It says be people who are chaste, meaning people who are modest in the way they look, you know, they don't look at the opposite gender with lust and so on. Be chaste.
And therefore, as a result, Allah will make the women of your family be chaste. So when the man of the family decided that I'm going to protect my eyes, and I'm not going to look here and there a lot in return, according to the Hadith, in Ahmed will make the women of the household become people who will want to become chaste as well, when you're not messing around with other women out there, alone, protect your own women. But that's, that's what I was saying automatically, the hearts will be inclined towards righteousness, because they are also inclined towards, you know, you're also inclined towards righteous ness. Now, what also happens here is that if a person was to think well,
I am going to try and see how many gifts Allah has given me, you cannot make that decision by looking at the gifts of Allah, because there's somewhere some strange incident Allah has made taken place, which you have got no calculation of like these three stories. And hidden is the strange man that comes in here does something which have an effect in your life, good or bad, but you can't make the calculation. So it's not based on what you actually can see, is based on what Allah hasn't even shown us, you know, he never showed us yet of the things that will happen in the next life. So one other thing I want to say to you is that
the incidents that have happened here, the three incidents, they are things of the day, and they are things of the unseen and they are matters to do with Allah Zoda and he said in the Holy Quran, winder Houma Fatiha lie to him belongs all the keys to the treasures of the unseen and lie Allah Maha alone. Nobody knows the treasures of the unseen and how to unlock them except for Alaska. So what is happening here is that you've got a you've got a group of people like for example, you've got these sailors who see hidden they recognize him, they bring him on the boat and he does something to that boat.
And within that there is a great blessing of Allah though there is you know, though these people are kind of feeling that we've had a bad day there is a great blessing of Allah azza wa jal, the fact that he has come at that time he is no hitter has come at that time, and he has done something to that boat. Now. This is a blessing in disguise, as they say, and the poor and it has been said Asa and to him Boucher and
shabu, sometimes you want something you like something is dear to you, but exactly, you know, exactly harm harm in there for you. So the sailors are thinking what is good for us to have a nice boat to get to the other side and come back and for our boat not to be damaged. But that didn't happen. When they both got actually damaged. They hated it. But Allah says what in the Quran was an Takara who share there are some times you dislike something but there's something good in it for you. Okay, so this is what teaches us of how we accept other which is good or bad, whatever evil there is, whatever good there is. We accept it as it is. And that's the fate of a believer and I'm
telling you this one thing is, there is no religion on the earth. No other religion on the earth except this religion that gives us this matter of faith is matter of faith. There is no
Other religion Now, what does this mean? You might think, but it's just a small thing we know it. No. You need to meet people outside of this faith outside of Islam have a conversation with them of what goes through their minds about trying to make an understanding of how Allah operates, or God operates in regards to them. And if you understand their belief, you will see how easy Islam has become for us. Because what we what we eventually doing is we accepting the matter as it is, we see good in it no matter what. And even if there's evil in it, we don't ascribe the evil to Allah, this is another part. How do we get to that now you've looked closely at Musa
alayhis salam, if you look at the story, you see very suddenly Allah has put that in there. So though Allah is the Creator of everything, in fact, he's the creator of good and bad. When we talk about Allah, we don't attribute evil to Allah, we only attribute good to Allah. Why do we do that? One big thing is that it's because of respect. We respect a lot. Second is everything Allah is doing even though it's bad for us. Eventually we'll understand that there was good in that that's why you can't say this bad thing came from Allah. Now let's let's look at the look at the source. So for example,
if you look at the
story, you will see that when he's when when Hitler is breaking the boat,
Isilon, he says in a number 79, he says, For out to an eba, I decided, I made the intention, Heather is talking about himself. I made the intention to damage the boat. So this isn't a bad matter and evil thing that he's got no evil in the eyes of the sailors and evil in the eyes of musasa. Even in the eyes of the watchers, he says, I am I decided to damage the boat. So he he put the attribution of this evil act or this bad act towards himself. But then when you look at the next couple of irons, when he reveals what happened with the with the with the boy and who's who his parents were, and why a lot to be Soloway, he says in an 81
he says for our Allah Azza wa Jalla says this Aradhana and you boadilla humara boohooman how you Rahman who sakata Morrow, Accra mooroopna, Allah says when he's relating the story, he doesn't say that Hitler said, I did this. No, Allah says,
He describes himself that we when Allah uses the word we it's it's it's the state of authority, that Allah says your load is the one that changed both of them with another child that is going to be closer to them. I'm grateful to them in terms of benefit and closer to them in terms of having having mercy on them and benefiting them. Now, this attribution of good has been attributed to a lot of them. And what Allah teaches us through this is that whenever we are talking about evil on the underground, we attribute it to ourselves because we don't know what the real reason is why we would have done something but whenever there is a good matter, whatever good metric it is, we always
attribute it to Allah azza wa jal, because he's the one is the giver of all good and we know is the giver of all that as well. And it comes from him. But we don't attribute why because we don't know the true reason why it was sent. And we don't also know the the true, deeper meaning of why it was actually done. So the saying of the Arabic statement goes, fear our little hacky mi la Yahoo and Enigma,
when a wise being does something every action of his own always has wisdom in it. So what that means is, because Allah is the old one, and he is wise in terms of infinity as in there's no there's no way we can actually pinpoint how wise Allah is. Every single action of Allah is wise whether we understand it, or we don't understand it.
Are you guys with me? Yep. This is this is what what the what the story is teaching us now.
After the story of moussaka
what we need to now reflect is okay, so what happens is that musala salam is in you know, his with his people in the you know, in somewhere
Across the terrains,
possibly north west of Philistine and sort of south east of or somewhere in between where Mr. Egypt is and Philistines in between there somewhere musala salaam wonders for 40 years with these people. And you know, as I said to you before some of these incidents happen there while he was there. But eventually as he is traveling and is going he comes across
You know, he comes across his own demise. He has to pass away before musala salaam you had How do not lay Salaam Salaam that passed away. So how do not a Salam passes away before musala is haram. And Musa alayhis salam Salam is the one that is surviving the end and after masala Salaam is USIA who become the prophet and Israel are blessed in a way that they get prophet after prophet after prophet they had no they had no time on the earth. Without a prophet. This is how blessed they were.
The only time Allah decided not to send a prophet so you can imagine that musallam harmonizer, Lucia, Allison and many, many, many others are coming sometimes to together sometimes three together three profits in one time. You might think well, where's the Delete for having three profits at one time? Well, we've got one incident in the plan to profit we've got like the Dalai Lama, the Prophet Solomon is and was a prophet and both of them are prophet at the same time. But a an evidence for three prophets at the same time is Surah, Yaseen Sudan, the 36. And I'm not going to go into the whole story. We don't even know that all you know, we're not even clear on the names of all these
prophets. But Allah azzawajal says in Isaiah number 14, when in soft story as seen when two prophets were sent to a certain town, and they were denied, Allah says fazla Italia for Paulo in Lake Mossad, we sent a third individual to back them up. And he became the third of the two already to their to become a prophet. And I backed them up with the third one and all three of them said in alaikum, Musa loon, all of us have been sent as messengers towards you. Okay, so here's the deal, having three. Now back to the slide into a very, very lucky the children of Yahuwah sent a very, very lucky in having this many prophets.
when they when you have so many prophets, and so many on the heirs sometimes, you know, you can end up thinking, Well, you know, it doesn't matter whether we've got this woman, you've got a nice amount of blessing too much, you kind of think, well, I've got it anyway. One of the things that happened with these individuals are not all of them, some of them is that they became rebellious. Now they were already rebellious with musallam, but they become quite rebellious with some of the other prophets that were there. In fact, what Allah azza wa jal mentions in a couple of places or for an in a few places, actually in Nepal, and Allah says that they even went to the extent some
urbanista not all of them, some of them started going to the extent of killing profits.
They even you know, literally they literally killed
Ambien, many, many of you don't know the number of how many they get killed, and this is mentioned in the Quran.
I'll give you one reference
snana just right now, so Surah Baqarah surah number two, and number 61. Allah says Valley could be unknown. Can we pull NaVi ayatullah way up to Luna NaVi
the right now they killed profits without a right to take their lives. So Allah says Allah gives us the right to take someone's life meaning is in retribution of them taking another soul or killing somebody else, then that is there's a law on the air sometimes that we have no life for a life and that was written in the Torah before but they kill prophets. Why? Because now you've got to understand the psychology that the Quran gives us and this is something that I want to quickly discuss in this session. So that it becomes a quick summary of many of the things we've discussed on the masala Salaam. And it also tells us the reason why Allah azza wa jal spends so much time in the
Quran talking about these people. So just before I go into that, I just want to say to you that the reference for when Allah stops the first time he stops a prophet not being on the earth was with Isa Elisa Lam's lifting from the earth when he's Allah Salaam was lifted to the heavens
and between him and more
sallallahu alayhi salam there was a gap, that gap Allah named as * turati manabu this was this is number 19 and number one nine surah number five, Allah says
Allah facultative minahasa this prophet Muhammad is not coming to you at the beginning of a gap that just passed by a profit being central message is being sent to this earth. And of course Mohammed Salah is was the last of all messengers, but that was the first time he's probably lasted for almost 600 years, five to 600 years, where there's no profit set, but in between, you know, for 1000s of years, they have prophet after prophet after prophet. So what happens here is that Allah azza wa jal, the main thing is to warn us not to become like them. The message of all of this is for us, um, guys, I want you to wake up, you might have been sitting here for the last few weeks thinking, Well,
you know, when Israel did this, oh my god, when I started, oh my god, the question the Prophet the question, they said, You and your Lord go and fight over their own mic, Allah, you know, how bad can him get by newstrike said this about, you know, musala salaam and he's, you know, he doesn't take his clothes off, because there's a reason for that there's something you know, something wrong with his body. So many challenges that that musasa went through. But why is the law relating the old that in this court
because Allah is telling us, we have the oma of this last oma part of his oma is going to be like for like, banners, right? And that's a scary thing. And that's why the plan starts off straightaway. So if you look at the plan, it starts off straightaway and a quoted us in of the Quran, it begins to start counting all the things that Bernstein went through, and all the things that you know, we might be eventually going through. So one reference if you check it later on, and number 4041, of Surah Baqarah surah. Number two, Allah says, Yeah, Benny, sorry, oh, children of Jaco was Kuru nia. matteotti. And Anjali can remember the gifts that I have bestowed upon you. Well, Ofu Brd, if you
if you fulfill your part of the promise, I will fulfill my part of the promise. So what happened here is that the the, the battle is right in the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi, salam, they started the question, how long are we going to suffer? One of the questions they said is how long we're going to suffer. Just like today, the Muslim Omar is saying What?
How long we're going to suffer. And exactly that reason why Allah revealed that first for us to reflect. Allah says, What Oh, God,
if you fulfill your part of the promise I will fulfill my part of the promise was that, that you back the messengers and you believe in them and believe in what I've revealed to you, which is the next verse.
And don't try and get you know, get away with this. If you do that part of your promise, then I will fulfill my part of that promise. So a lot of promises in the plan. He will give us you know, the rain on the earth, Allah will make us most supremum the earth we know that from the Quran, Muslims today are questioning this the question why why is don't mind the state? Well, the answer is that Allah is telling us that don't try and you know, do what they did in the past, which some of you are going to do so what does Allah say in number 42? He says, Well, I'll tell you so haka will battle what that to Mulholland Allah, Allah says, Don't try and cover the truth with falsehood.
And you hide the truth while you know it. Now Subhanallah today, I want to tell you this year, today, some laws in the Quran tell me this yes or no. There are liberal Muslims who are saying that some of our laws in the Quran need to be completely changed. that some of our laws, I'm not going to mention which laws some of our laws are archaic, they're all they need to be replaced. Some must be the Muslims Muslim saying this, saying that the story is even they've said that the stories of the prophets La la la la la, they've said the stories of the prophets need to be replaced. And you to have modern, modern stories. This is not one individual. There's large groups of these people online
that several countries from Egypt from Bangladesh from this country from Canada from America this large, you know, groups of people who have said they want modern stories. And what they haven't understood is you know, we sitting here this is now probably the 16th week I don't know what week is right of all the series that we're doing right?
We sitting here and we finding look yes or no guys, we finding meaning so much meaning in every part of the life yes or no guys tell me, right? But the thing is, I'm only
One man who said a few things, and have come to you, as a humble person in front of you, I haven't looked into the detail series about looked at a couple of books here and there. And I've come to you sitting here giving you like, you know, 10s and 10s of lessons from this and it's endless. But if I was to sit with you the deepest of C's, I'm telling you, I would be here for hundreds and hundreds of hours and still not finish that the things that we can take from their lives. But they are Muslims today who are saying that the Koran needs to be changed, the laws need to be changed, and we need to look at the modern times and we need to adapt to the modern times with the Quran. And what
they're doing the hiding the truth of the painting the coating the truth with falsehood. And that's what Allah told him not to do. And there are Muslims Tell me yes or no, they talk about Islam, they preach Islam they, you know, yeah, yeah, boy, you give me divided by time I'll do it. Yeah. They do all of that in the name of whatever Islam that the God but they don't pray. So not only
they don't pray, they don't give zakat. Allah said, hey, look at number 43 to the abundance right in opening the Quran. And that's why he said address them because he's addressing us through this. He said rocky musawah to soccer walker or marwari. You establish friends, you give us a car and do ruku amongst the people who do reconvening that come to the masjid for Salah.
There are many out there talk in the media, that those who will miss their foreign press. But they think they know everything about Islam. There are those who come on to the TV, no hijab, no, nothing. Forget no hijab. Yeah, forget no hijab, because for some of them, they say, you know, this is a new argument, the new argument is where is in the Quran?
Now, if you follow that argument is exactly what the Bernstein did. They say if you go right now today to the bonus, right, they will say whereas in the Torah, some of them will say not all of them. So there's ways in the Torah. Now they've got the Torah, and they've also got the Talmud and they've got other things that backup the understanding of the religion. That's the original, original, you know, Revelation. Now and the understanding from that, what we've got, we've got Quran and Sunnah yes or no, the Quran kasana there are some Muslims who say we don't need some now. They say Where is
not going to do? I've met these Muslims. They call the progressive Muslims. They have progressed, you know, I'm saying I promise. Yeah, I've met them. And I've said to them, I said, Brother, one of them I met here. He doesn't live far from here. And online. These guys created great fitna. Oh, a big fitness thing. Because the thing is, it's easy online to go.
Nobody sees your face. No one knows who you are. Not you know, you can take your time looking your books, doing your study, doing research and read writing again. It's hard to sit face to face and talk about all this stuff. So anyway, I ended up in the house of one of these. And I know online he creates a lot of fitna with Muslims, and he believes that the Quran is enough.
And I said to him, Look, do you pray for having time do you pray said I pray five times a day. I said where's the end of that?
nowhere in the Quran he says pray five times a day.
It only says established press 700 times in the Quran it says established press no way in the Quran it says
very far from 2000 Why do you pray five times a day?
I said again, let me give you another scenario.
I said if you make this if you make a mistake in Salah what do you do?
He said well you know we all know you know those of you know about this you do such and such which is you do salam to the right and then to sagittis to correct your Salah sometimes sometimes you do says the first and the Salah, right? Yes.
He said You said yourself I said yes. I said where in the Quran does it say sell yourself?
It's not that nowhere in the Quran. Anyone who fancies
five times to pray is in the Sunnah, is in the Hadith. Such a sow is in the Hadith. Most of In fact, I said to him, told me, where is it in the Quran to say first Do you think we'll then tie hands I said that's how you pray said yes, I'll pray. Then you say sort of Fatiha. Then you say surah then you go to Roku. And you look who is like this? And then after that you say something along the after you're going to say where in the Quran is the sequence of this? Nowhere. Yet he prays like that. So I said, What's your answer? You know, he said to me, he said, this is how our forefathers have given us the prayer law.
I said yeah, well I said our forefathers gave the sun as well.
During sound argument, if he can use the car to say I get my surgeon sahoo I get my five daily prayers I get my my sequence of prayers to do from
forefathers because they couldn't he said they couldn't be wrong. There's so many of them doing it passed on from generation to generation. They couldn't believe it. I said, well give me the let me use the same car. And let me tell you my forefathers your forefathers have been also following the Sunnah of the Prophet Allah is and and that generated generation. It connects us to Rasulullah sallallahu. But he didn't want to accept.
I was there. Literally from Arusha. To further I debated
Russia to further five to six hours non stop one room sitting down, I was debating one day after another delete, I cornered him, and I could see that, you know, he got cornered, he tried to get up the arguments he couldn't and I said, I said to him, I said, What are they he man you got? Because I didn't want to say he's not a Muslim. See, I don't do that. I'm not the type of Imam just to say you're not Muslim. You're not Muslim. I don't like that. Okay? He's the man okay. Allah knows. And May May Allah judge him and may the May the best happen for him in the future, Sammy. And Ryder, we know he's still he's still a person still believes in the Quran, he still prays and so on. And I'm
not going to say anything about Islam. And I'll leave that to Allah. That's not for me to say that's for a lot to say. And I want all the Muslims to learn from this, if you're going to listen to this recording, and then say, Oh, no shake, you should have said, Yes.
Last year problem, brother. It's not mine. Because in the Hadith, he says, If you say to anyone careful, and one of them will become a coffee. So either he becomes a coffee or if he's not a Catholic, then you become a Catholic. So I'm not that type. But what I did do I said to him, I said, What am a man you've got I said, I've shaken that a man tonight, you should reflect and you should think that what you're doing is not right. But what I want to say to you is that you've got these Muslims who don't even pray, who don't even give Zakat and law says they they do just like the buttons right? They give their lectures they talk and all these is here in the beginning Bukhara are
with the ruler now. These are the scholars have been assigned. Today we've got scholars of this oma who have studied the Sharia who have studied their knowledge of the deen who are Muslims by name who know better than you and me. But they don't they don't practice they even preach Allah says next verse, utter moron So Bill bill, are you telling people to do good with unsewn emphasis you forget yourselves one to Catalina Nikita while you've got the Torah in front of you you've got the book in front of you after that tarpaulin you don't even understand what you're doing wrong. So allies telling us the same thing you the people preach in this in the you know, I'm telling you one thing
Yeah. And I'm not going to openly name any names and I'm not going to say so and so so and so no, but there is um, please don't get put off. Don't get put off of Islam. Just because you came across a scholar of Islam or a religious person who stamp who's supposed to be religious and is not religious don't get put off as useful and we are going to have many people in this oma who will do this for you know, whatever sake there's people who've made a lot of things that profession, some people have made lecturing the profession, some people are made, you know, just in rookie or their profession. They want to become Ghostbusters. Somebody will make the profession day in day out day
in day out, you know, just just just go to to to to Ghostbusters.
I think is you know, some of these guys are be honest with you. They don't even know some of the basics of the deen. Some people want to go out there and they want to do other things for the religion. They don't even know the basics of the religion. May Allah azza wa jal help all of us. Now then Allah says this, you have any slide now he talks to the common people. You have any slide? Open Oh, children say, oh children of the apple booth could remember the gifts that are given Why is Allah saying that because he wants us to remember the gifts that Allah has given us. Tell me this. We're not Sahaba part of this Oh, my yes or no. That is a gift to us. You understand that guys?
That's a gift to us, was not Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam saved on the day of Azov when 10,000 Confederates came to kill the Sahaba. And if the Sahaba had died, all Rasulullah sallallahu taala died. And as a result, Eman never came to us, then who would have lost us or the Sahaba who lost we would have lost.
So Allah says in the Holy Quran, and this is how Allah links the two things that you might think well, why is a revelation coming into time of Mohammed Salah Allah is I'm telling the bonus law even the time of Mohammed Salah alarmism, remember the gifts that I gave you and then a lot talks about new salads, lavish gifts, and he talks about the Bonanza in in the time of musala Islam you might think well that's really not fair. I'll be honest with you when you first read the funny thing. How is that fair? Then Emma did that wrong? You understand? The people in Mohammed Salah de nuestra even Mohammed Salah last time, did they were they the people under funeral Yes or no?
No fudong passed away a few 1000 years ago musallam came 3000 years before that. Why is Allah saying remember my gifts? And then when he says remember my gift he talks about the time of Musa answer on why? Well a couple of reasons and the same thing he does with us in the Holy Quran. So he says in Surah number 33 and number nine he says yeah, you will let the M and O you who believe for Muslims will Caronia Mata La La come remember the gift of a lifetime to us now. Remember the gift of our gift is that Allah is just come you know don't.
When Confederates came, armies came together for arson alley in Bihar. Then I sent a blowing wind on to them. What do you knew the name Tara and I sent my own army who were angels who came down. This is talking about the Battle of 100 or Battle of the trenches, some call develop trenches below 100 whatever you call it, this is the day 22 nights, the pseudo lots of alarms and spending the cold and he had nothing to fight them and allows him to wind and blew the enemy's tents away. He blew the pots away. And because of that he does a great blessing on the believers. But he tells us you remember that gift Why? Because if it wasn't for that reason What happened there? We would not be
here today as Muslims Do you understand? That's one second is just as Allah save them many times he has saved us throughout history.
So many times Allah saved our forefathers, our Muslim brothers and sisters, our countries are Muslims, our empires, whatever it was Allah saved throughout history. And here in Surah Baqarah Allah says to them, or even a Jaina coming out when I saved you from the, from the people of Iran he saved to the ministry. Why Allah has saved us from enemies we don't even know this is to us. You're gonna say where's the lead for that? Well, it's not an surah Mohammed
Surah Surah Surah Surah number 48. Allah says Allah who will lead the Kapha ad of a man Kuma idea command.
He is the one Allah who stopped their hands from fighting with you and stopped your hands from fighting with them.
You know, right now, I'll be honest with right now, if Meola has really had mercy on us, with all the things going on in the media, with all the things going on the media they would have there could have been absolute chaos out here, with people going after Muslims, yes or no? Allah forbid that, yes, it can happen. And you might think, Well, no, really, what happened in the London riots 2011.
Where the London riots we didn't rally here, remember, and there's looting going out there. And they went town to town, you know, shopping center to shopping center with knives and with clubs and whatever. And when they if the public become losers, there's very little police can do. They can only watch surveil, you know, have surveillance, just film them, wait till things calm down, and then come in and start arresting them one by one. But there are not enough police out there to man the streets. So what I'm trying to say is that the still Amazon and they're still in a piece that we've got, even though there's so much going on in the media.
And the fact that Allah has saved the fight from coming right down to our doorstep, that is the gift of a land, we should remember that and that is to the Muslims a lot and says,
Allah counts the gifts one by one, but I'm going to tell you specifically some of the things that Allah, you know, wants us to reflect on is that he gave us many blessings one by one, and we were the ones who were the reasons why those gifts went away. Yes, and automatize. So if you look in the Abbasid Empire, if you look in the American Empire, if you look into the Ottoman Empire, all these empires that came, you look into history, I've got no time to go into history. Every time Allah gave them land, he gave them property, he gave them palaces, he gave them gifts. He gave them armies. He gave him security. He gave him treasures, he gave them gold coins, gave him silver coins. They gave
him diamonds and emeralds, whatever it was, and they sat on top of all of that, you know what happened after that? Look in history, the kings, not all the kings, but there were kings. There were sevens. There were kings there are people in the court in the in the coaches of the of the kings, they start to drink alcohol.
They legalized it
This is our history guide. This is our history if you want to say why did Allah take this away just like I say well why when the situation Allah said okay, Muslims, you want to know your situation, look in history and your history is to look at both sides.
So they start to drink they they made they said wine you know what they said is that this wine is not made of grapes, so it should be okay, so they start drinking wine.
As long as we don't get drunk, it's okay. But obviously they get drunk. They're, you know, in, in Islam, whether you get drunk or you don't get drunk, it's a complete, you know, rule that you don't drink. But they made the choice. They made the hell out for themselves. What did they do after that women were singing, dancing, belly dancing. You know, these harems, they have, I'm not saying all of them. But seriously, secretly, there was a lot going on. And then a lot of memory murders going on within the within the dynasties. If you've studied history, where did the murders come out come from, they didn't come from outside. They came from within. So family members to just get the role
chair, we're killing one another. They're poisoning them. So the guys have to be really careful who the chef is.
And who the cook or the cook, the chef is or who the 70s this was really important. Because anywhere, anyone just put a little bit of poison in the guy's dead, bury him and the next guy comes on the throne. And sometimes you find periods every two years a guy dies, every three or four years, that old guy dies, and a new Prince comes in, you can come sometimes brothers kill each other princes killing each other because they want to, you know, kill the one who's next to the throne so he can get to the soul.
And there's 10s and 10s of these cases. So when they're drinking, there are women and they're wasting their money. And they're gambling, and they're doing all sorts of things nonsense, because they've got nothing else to do. Right? The armies out there fighting, they're bringing in, you know, loads of money for them. I'm not saying this is every single Muslim Empire. Please don't get me wrong, please. Yeah, there'll be many good Muslim empires, and there's been many good Muslim governors and so on pleased, I'm not just here, you know, I haven't got I haven't got the time to go into all the goods that we've done. Okay. So I'm not saying that we were just bad crew people,
please don't get the wrong message. All I'm saying is, our history has this also. And we've got to be clear about it. And today, why we're in this position is because the last Empire we had, if you look at the Ottoman Empire, if you look at the end of the Ottoman Empire, you will find all these reasons,
you will find that became laxed, you'll find that they were very far behind in research and development, when the others around them Europeans and others had learned from them and were far ahead of them in, in research and development, you will find that they were people who were just in their own little bubble, they were talking about things, you know, getting into things that were trivial, that had no sense of their progress in this world. And if you look in the Quran, you will find what it was trying to do when they get caught so many gifts, is not wasting money in our Salah. Allah gave the man our Salah design number 57 of surah number two, and they said we don't want this.
We want something less than this.
When people start doing that Monday, if you look at the Islamic empires, you will see that they started to go out like I'll be I'll be very clear with you. There are Muslims today, yes or no? Who want to not live amongst Muslims? Because it's kind of cool.
I know sometimes it's a good thing not to live among Muslim you go in a non Muslim society, you give Dawa you change the society? That's a good thing. But sometimes you want to be outside Why? Because you get the different color lady, you know, I'm saying like
a different color lady, and the different house and a different thing. That's that's that's it. So there are Muslims in history Who did that? And they start to break the actual the strength of the of the oma that was there. Anyway, let's move on. I said to you one of the things and this is all mentioned Surah Baqarah. Is 6869 70. Asking questions that have no reason no purpose, you know about the bacara about the cow and they said Is it what kind of car what kind of cow not going to go over the history of the story again, they did that. And today we have scholars and we have others Muslim ordinary people who want to know, things that I've got no way of making any difference to them.
But they want to know these things. I'll be honest with you, I've you know, I've been in many. You know, throughout my life I've been staying something I'm in place I've met so many different people. Sometimes people want to come to a lecture just to hear something they've never had in their life.
That's the whole point.
And they all they want to do is they want to just hear something new or they want to hear something that is maybe if you give them a fabricated Hadith, they'll get more excited than it's the Hadees or some some people are that are fabricated and made up IDs they'll be more excited to hear something new like that than to give them an authentic hadith. Anyway, let's let's move on Allah says in Zion number 7574 so Marcus at Hulu come after you being like this. I give you gifts and you don't you don't look after the gifts I gave you. Then your heart started to become hard.
When our genius not see what's happening, you know the people running our countries, not all of them, but a lot of them
hearts are hard. They've got dunya inside it. They've got the world inside. It's not just them. My brothers and sister won't say as many people underneath them who've got the hearts heart as well. Now some youngsters, they say, Man, you want to just take the government down. You know you my friend, you get into his position and you're going to be worse than him.
Today, you ain't got no money. That's why you can't do so many things. You're doing sins with five pounds in your pocket. What about if you had 5 million in your pocket? And son? You're doing since today? Because you can look at a girl man.
you can't get her today because she's not interested in you. Tomorrow. You got 10 million in your in your hands? Yeah, you don't need to look handsome. You can be the ugliest
throw the money she'll come to you to come running to you. She'll do whatever you want for you. Yes or no guys.
So these guys who are some of these guys are complaining about the government's and rules and so on. I can't look at them and think you do a bad job. You do Belgium. Allah knows best but I can't see that. Right? So Allah says the hearts become hardened then what does the law say? He says 75 is a big lesson for us. I thought of marijuana and you know, local to the Muslims in the Rasulullah sallallahu steim. Allah says do you have hope that the battle is thrive in your time will believe in the message that has come down to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Wakata can fit camino when a part of them already has heard the column A lot of had the words of a love the Quran, words of a
line of Torah they heard the words of a line of Torah so my you hadn't really funa who then they twist it and turn the words of the Torah mean by the masakazu after they understood what they were doing, after they knew what they're doing. They still do the DD Allah says do you think they're going to believe in this Quran? So what is Allah telling us? Allah is telling us that there are certain people on this earth and I'm not going to say all of them there are certain people in every groups have this wealth. The only reason and the deep thing inside them is they don't want us to have advancement on this earth. Because of jealousy of using Where's it coming from Allah says that
Allah says in the Quran
I am number
109 of Surah Baqarah has had them in handy and fussy they're just jealous. They're jealous after the truth was evil that jealous? And what the same way that Nakula Dena hamanako Amanda when they meet one another this when they meet you when they meet you they believe that they say we believe there are some people who intermingle with the Muslims and they say we will you will either Hala Babu whom elaborate when they get together in the secret circles.
They say should be revealed to them what will hurt us in the end? Should we tell him what's really in our books should you tell him was really in our in our beliefs? Basically, there were things to hide and they don't want you to do know those things and they don't want you to advance either. And big problem is with the Australian and is today with the Muslims tell me this yes or no. Do we have people in this oma who
you know, look at the Colosseum. Holy, holy.
Oh, the gods the every respect for the book. Holy cow. Holy Quran. Yeah. But the guy doesn't know how to read the Quran. The guy does not know what the Quran says. The guide is the guide is never is never read any meaning of the Quran. The guy you know, all he knows is that just holy, just respect holy, and the Goddess has hope in Him that, by me, treating is holy. And by me having a good respect for it. I will end up in jail.
There are Muslims are that today? Yes or no?
They don't pray, they don't fall. And there are people who even do pray who fast on and off. There are those who do pray and fast all the time, but still is like Oh, the karate just is just holy. acid is holy. Nothing more wonderful. The Quran kung fu the Quran came for the message or for us just to think is holy.
Which one for us to read the message or not to read the message? read the message.
If you don't even know what's in the Quran, you've never known what's in the details of it. You never know what the law is telling you. You don't know what Allah is telling you. But you think oh I respect it is like some guy saying, imagine some guy says yeah, British law or respect or respect. Oh, he's been. The guy says every day. He walks past the parliament and it's all parliament.
10 Downing Street.
He respects all of that. But then he does not apply any British law.
You don't put a seatbelt on he drives you don't drive on the right side of the road. He drives the wrong side of the roundabout. Yeah, he walks when the traffic lights are still green. He drives when the travelers are still red
dragged down a one way street on the opposite way. Imagine he does all those things. Imagine he goes and he you know, he doesn't respect people doesn't respect neighbors. What did he do with I mean, he just respected for no reason. Allah says, Look at this is it number 78? Do I mean home only you there are certain balloons like who are who have become illiterate to this message meaning there's a message of the Torah. They can't read Hebrew and they don't understand Hebrew they don't even understand any any translation or anything. They don't even make an effort to understand any translation of the Hebrew nothing.
And they only respect the old you know, they don't know nothing of the book Illa Amani except they have wishes. And the only the only thing when whom Elijah would known and they think that if they if they can have a good hope that Allah will just fulfill it. Unless it just like them. There's a problem in this room. Tell me this guy isn't our problem in his own mouth people not knowing the Arabic not knowing the translator not knowing any of this just like it's just respect yes or no.
So Allah is not counting is saying Well, those were their problems, same problems you're going through now look at the next one. Allah says
why the Havana mitaka coolatta una de makalah said I told you when I was trying not to share blood not to kill one another. Your brothers you live together even though you've got feuds between yourselves don't kill one another. Don't drive yourself out of your lands to reduce anfisa come in the attic my number 84 so number two, so Allah said don't drive yourself out of your own home your brother's your own man You're the man to slay your under boo Salah Salem live together in peace some and to Maha Shula it up to Luna and then you yourself why you start killing one another you start making laws and start making it the differences in you say, you know, he's not a proper Jewish
because he's not abundant. He is not this is not that what to do nothing. I mean, come in theory, some of you start driving others from the home to LA how do
you start to show your sins and enmity towards them? You start to take them off as captains of war. This is all in Anima 85 sort of number two, tell me this yes or no. Today there are Muslims who are killing Muslims yes or no. There are Muslims driving Muslims out of their own home. There are Muslims that are captive, making other Muslims captives that are Muslim that are causing a key The difference is that they say well, he's now become a coffee. Let's kill him. Yes or no. This is in the Quran. You don't have to turn to any other place to get the answers of our troubles except the book is telling us Why did Allah spend almost whole Jews talking about musalla Islam? Why For this
reason, and Omar, you're going to go through exactly the same thing. And what I will do is our session is over for today. But what I'm going to do is we're going to have a couple of weeks of an hour break. Okay, so we still got another session to finish this. finish this off in Sharla.
So if I tell you the dates now
