Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi. He may be vanilla Today we will be going over the 15 Jews. We ask Allah Allahu Allah to grant us all the ability to benefit from the stories in the form an

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

interesting is, as we know, the 15th Jews is roughly halfway in the Quran. And what was interesting going through all these edges, every single Jews has a detailed story or a few details story, except for the Jews were allegedly element mainly Miss Saigon. Salam aleikum.

00:00:47--> 00:01:30

Wa Alaykum wa salam ala lavaca How are you? hamdulillah How are you? I hope you're well. Alhamdulillah well, hamdulillah everybody else was following are all well, Alhamdulillah we've reached the 15th of June inshallah we'll discuss the 15 Jews today. And, you know, it's been very interesting as we've been going over these stories throughout the days, I think what stood out for me, which I didn't really know is that in every Jews, this so many stories mentioned in detail, except for the Jews, there's more halal and haram mentioned. And I think that just shows us the importance of you know, stories, knowing about stories, telling people stories, especially stories

00:01:30--> 00:01:31

from the Quran.

00:01:32--> 00:01:56

Yes, stories from the Quran. Absolutely amazing. I find that you know, you can tell another story, but it will never be like that, which is from the Quran because you know that this is true, and it really happened. So, knowing that really gives you a lot of peace, and it gives you the ability to understand that I can implement this in my life.

00:01:58--> 00:02:40

So Han Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah grant us all ability to implement the lessons derived from these stories in our lives. When we look in the 15 years we find the very first Surah Surah Allah, Allah Allah Allah makes mentioned in the very first verse about Islam, we all know the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was taken from Makkah to baitul Maccabees from there he was taken up. And then he was given the Salah, and he saw certain things in general, he saw certain things in jahannam. on this journey, he went with gibreel Ali Salaam. So in the very first verse, Allah Subhana, Allah speaks about this a lot. And in the surah in a few places, he also touches on it. I

00:02:40--> 00:03:24

think there's a few lessons to take from, you know, the whole story or the whole event of Elissa. One of them being the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went on this journey, and he was given the biggest gift, after, you know, after belief in Allah for himself, as well as this oma and that was Salah. And I think it's very important for us to realize, you know, the whole, the whole reason for this is raw and Miraj after that, because the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given the Salah, so many times we talk about, you know, the Islam and the mirage. And, you know, sometimes we we go about it in a way, we were not really focusing on the main point of it, and that

00:03:24--> 00:03:34

is performing our Salawat and, you know, doing our extra Salawat, even voluntary salah and before that, at least, our compulsorily Salawat. So I think that's very important to mention.

00:03:35--> 00:04:07

It's absolutely the entire story. A lot of the scholars when they speak about it, they always mentioned the Salah, the aspect of salah and how it was in Los Alamos called up to receive the instruction of Salah, whereas with the rest of the outcome, they all came down to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he actually went up to receive from us and what Allah de Sala which was ultimately a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala to him, and this is how the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam treated the Salah

00:04:08--> 00:04:50

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Another interesting point to mention is in this you know elevation of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not only physically, but also we find his status, he was the best of creation, a legend of Allah refers to him this verse of Hannah Levy, Asahi Abbe de, a legend of Allah is the one who took you know, his servant, his slave, and some of the scholars mentioned that he was elevated. Not only this physically, physically, but also you know, he's the best amongst everybody when he or because he is the most complete when it comes to this idea, and worshipping and submitting to Allah Subhana Allah so if there's anything we take from it, you know, if you want your

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

level to be raised, especially in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala Because ultimately, that's what matters. You need to improve your worship you need to improve your relationship.

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

with Allah.

00:05:02--> 00:05:13

Yes. And you know how Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he was moved from Mecca to Corona from baytril Kalam, Elon Musk, these two

00:05:14--> 00:05:58

must be done in within one night and up into the heavens up right up to the seventh heaven and to see Dr. moonta. And he came down and his bedding was still warm in one of the generations it makes mention of how his bedding was still warm. This is possible for a loss of kind of water Allah and more than this, we need to understand that anything and everything is possible for loss of animal what Allah Some people believe that it was a dream that is one of the opinions. But the more correct opinion is that this really did happen. And if we can believe that, Allah subhanho wa Taala can cause a man to die for 100 years and then bring him back and let him see the signs etc. Then this

00:05:59--> 00:06:11

is, you know, not impossible for loss of mortality, it's more likely in the case of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that it can and did happen for him.

00:06:12--> 00:06:19

Pamela, as you mentioned, Chevron as anything else you'd like to mention on this story before we go to the next story in Soraka.

00:06:20--> 00:06:59

I think we move on inshallah. inshallah, I think one more point to mention is that when the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then returned with this news that he had gone to bait will mark this, and from there he went, he was given the Salah, etc. The people didn't want to believe there was one man who believed him, you know, without asking a second question without a second guess. And that was the default a loved one. And it's mentioned that one of the reasons for him being called a Cydia, it was from this instance, and again, we mentioned it's important to read about this great companion, the best person to have walked the earth after the messengers that ambia

00:06:59--> 00:07:43

added him salatu salam. Moving on, we go on to Surah two calf, Allah, Allah Allah in the surah mentions at least three amazing stories in detail. He speaks about the people of the cave. He then speaks about Moosa and hibel or how they alayhis salaam, whether he was an abbey or pious man is a difference of opinion, they and after that he speaks about Volkov named an amazing Surah An interesting surah so many lessons we can derive from it. The very first story, Allah Allah Allah mentions is the people of cave in grief, these people, or these young boys or young men were in a community where they weren't worshipping Allah, and they eventually fleet with their team, they

00:07:43--> 00:08:22

wanted to worship Allah, they reached a cave. And in this cave, Elijah lavalla caused them you know, go to sleep for so many years. Eventually, they woke up. So it's as though the story is mentioned. And it says though, the people of the book before also had a bit of knowledge when it came to the story or carry. That is why they asked the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I think there's a lot we can mention when it comes to this story. One of them being look at how these young boys, you know, so many times when people are young, they search for the truth, as the city mentioned, it's not, you know, 100%

00:08:23--> 00:08:59

correct to 100%, that it's only young people who look for the truth, that's not there is also older people will look for the truth. But generally, you find people when they're younger, they're stronger, they have more energy, they want to go out and search for things, they're not really happy with any explanation you give them to say that this is like this, because, you know, we learnt it before, they really want to know a lot more. So allegedly, while I mentioned these young men who went out and they left the community they were in. So where there was false hood where Allah Allah, Allah was being disobeyed, they lifted and went out and as they went out a larger lawanna on them

00:09:01--> 00:09:46

is absolutely, you know, you mentioned something very important and interesting as well, that it's the youth a lot of times that are searching and looking. So they end up questioning, and at times, they are the ones who end up implementing change, because the elderly and older will be the ones who remain in the old habits and in the old ways, and they won't want to change in a rush, because they're used to doing something a certain way. And they're setting the habits at that age that the youth are the ones who question and then ultimately ended up bringing about some change. So I think that period of that teenage period and beyond that, when a person is still young is a good

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

opportunity for them to change something and to to make a change and an impact in the world. When they have a peak the mental physical abilities capabilities, they're at the peak at that time.

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

Rather than being, you know, stuck in a, an educational facility, or something of that nature, I think we need to rethink our entire strategy as to how people go about the lives all together.

00:10:16--> 00:10:49

You know, you mentioned such an important point. And sometimes as young people, you have a lot of energy. But it's also important at the same time to benefit from the wisdom of those who are older those who have gone through life. So I think there is a balance. And you know, ultimately, at the end of the day, you will learn from here and there in every way, then you try to, with the help of Allah to bring whatever you've learned together and implement is the main thing and you're more likely to implement a lot of things and do something new or trying new things, when you're younger. And Allah has given you the energy as well, when you're much older, you've got children, you know,

00:10:49--> 00:11:33

you've settled down it becomes a bit more difficult, but it's not impossible. Another interesting point mentioned in the story, as the office setting, you know, they they speak about, they see that these people they had a dog with them. And Allah Allah Allah then mentions this dog in the Quran, what can go home from there it bill was seen described in the stock, how it was sitting with them in the cave, and it also went to sleep probably. In other it also speaks about the number of people and their dog of the city mentioned a very interesting point. And they say that, you know, this dog was mentioned in the Koran and honored when it accompany that group of pious people, a group of good

00:11:33--> 00:12:13

people. And also it, you know, attain little bit of the virtue of these pious people it was mentioned in the Quran, it went out with him. And I think if this is what the dog What about when it comes to human beings, when you accompany those who are good, those who are pious, not only do you benefit, but even in law that is good company for you. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives an example of the one who has good companies like you know, he goes with his hamburger misc, the one carrying a perfume of musk. If he's not going to give you some of this perfume, at least you cannot smell very nice. And you know, those who are around you, those who you mix with, they

00:12:13--> 00:12:36

eventually be vanilla shape your life and shape the person who you're becoming to. That's why I did something interesting. They say if you want to look at the person who you are, look at the five people who you mix with the most generally you that type of person, the bad habits they have, you usually have if they have good habits, you'll find that those good habits end up rubbing onto you.

00:12:37--> 00:12:54

Yes, well lucky, I didn't think of that aspect at all. It's a brilliant analogy, you know, and extraction from the earth. So the dog was, you know, benefiting from the companies out of love. And that's something that's amazing, a dog being a dog being what it is.

00:12:58--> 00:13:13

Even though it was what it was. So, what I find amazing is that Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about Fabiola nyla. And then he can be seen and other than that we struck upon the ears

00:13:15--> 00:13:50

in the cave, so that they would sleep, you know, the interpretation is that so they would sleep for many years. So why the IRS? You know, why is Allah subhanho wa Taala talking about the IRS here, because when a person wants to attain peace, then generally if there's noise around them, then they can't sleep until that noise has subsided. So Allah subhanho wa Taala covered the ears, right, or he struck upon the ears until they went to sleep. So in your life as well, when you find yourself in a situation with

00:13:54--> 00:14:35

so to speak, there'll be no peace in your life, so to speak. So if you've you hearing too much of negativity all the time, people telling you that you're not worth it, you can't do it, you're not able to do so they are always putting you down, and there'll be no peace in your life and you won't be able to achieve something from your life. But rather than listening to them all the time and paying attention to what they say, you know, don't close your ears physically, but block them out. And then once you've blocked out all the negativity, then you can actually benefit and move forward in your life. I'm not saying that all criticism or criticism is negative. Some criticism is good and

00:14:35--> 00:14:44

you need it and you know, sometimes we all need a stem reminder to come back to the right path etc or to be set on the right track. But

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

negativity is really something that can actually eat away and sap away at your success. So try to block out that which you feel is really negative of no use to you

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

Have no benefit, and you will find the peace and with that peace inshallah you will be able to progress and proceed in your life. You know, you mentioned such a powerful point and that is blocking out the noise in your life, especially if you want to achieve, you know, will always be somebody who has that comment to something to say, and if they could say about Allah Himself, and the messengers ambia Allah him Salatu was salam, what about, you know, us. And we also make mistakes. As you mentioned, we also need criticism or constructive criticism. But you know, if you carry on with this, then you usually don't achieve, you end up fighting too many battles that you

00:15:39--> 00:16:20

can't handle. And it's like a wave that just comes and takes everything in its path, you can't really fight it, you'd rather go with it. Another interesting point, I find when people speak about this topic of negativity, and noise, I think when people are occupied with something which they're really passionate about, which is of benefit, if you really invest in it, usually you won't have time to look at that negativity and noise. Yeah, sometimes you do get it, but you won't really concentrate on it as much, because you've got bigger things in life and you busy. Remember your time, the time you have, the way you use this time, you know, some people use this time to go

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

through every comment or every you know, every criticism and praise. Also, another important point is we've come to a stage in life or a time in life where, you know, there's so much praise being given out sometimes just one bad thing we already get upset about it. So especially on social media, is that balance is usually not there. So I think it's important, you mentioned that if you want to achieve something in life, you've got to block out the noise. And even if it's the bad noise, yes, but also sometimes the good noise so to say, so you don't rest on your laurels. You don't think that Okay, you've achieved and there's nothing more to get to

00:17:01--> 00:17:28

guess what, like what well expounded me. So there needs to be a balanced 100% where a person is, you know, not only list a blocking everything up and listening to the constructive criticism, etc. You know, Allah subhanho wa Taala also says what easier to sell to mobile Mama, I will do a lot of little care and when you have withdrawn from them, and that which they worship other than Allah, animal and Adam. So

00:17:29--> 00:17:39

these youth were ready to have an entire change in the lifestyle in order to achieve the happiness

00:17:55--> 00:18:39

just and they've remained the same. In that case, don't worry about it, carry on change your life, and do what you've got to do. These people were ready to move into a cave and live their entire life behind them. It said and it's mentioned in literacy that from amongst them were people who are from the hierarchy of society, they were, you know, from literally, so to speak from the leadership of society. And now all of a sudden, they've become hermits, so to speak in us in a cave, they are hermits, but they didn't mind being heavens wide, because they are with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you see these doors that they making these interior, we all benefit economic calamity. And well, he

00:18:39--> 00:19:17

lent me a millionaire, I shudder that all luck give us mercy and guide us to the righteous path or the right path. So always ask a lot, some kind of what Allah for goodness. And I find that when people do are in this type of situation, initially, they go through a lot of hardship. This is especially true for the reverse and convert, they go through a lot of hardship, but then after that comes a lot of ease Allah subhanho wa Taala is literally testing them. Are you going to carry on? Are you doing it for the people? Are you doing it for Allah Subhana Allah now, I'm not in that position. So I'm not wanting to speak about the, the hardship and the difficulty. But this is

00:19:17--> 00:19:22

something that they take, they can take a lot of solace from a story like this.

00:19:23--> 00:20:00

Yes, what she was mentioning is that ultimately, when you want to do something and look at these, you know, these young boys, they wanted to stick to their belief, even though there were some people from the hierarchy, the higher up in society, they put their lives on hold, they left everything and they ran away into a cave and they spent so many years they afterwards and this shows you that especially you know, we find what the reverts when they come to Islam, you will be tested. You know, I had one of my neighbors mentioning, he said that when you come to Islam, Subhana Allah, He says you will be tested. And he mentioned his story and you find that that's a common thing.

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

It's not always very but a common theme amongst people who then come into sample even people who are Muslims, but who want to become practicing, you find a lot of tests you. And he says it says though Allah is testing your sincerity. So we should keep that in mind and carry on with the story of the people of the cave, you know, in some head if it is mentioned that the soraa should be read every Friday and I think one of the reasons for that is that you could ponder over all these stories, amazing stories, you know, young men running away with their deep into the cave, they die for so many years, or they put to sleep for so many years and then come back to life. Pamela. Moving on to

00:20:38--> 00:21:19

the next story. We find the legend of Allah He speaks about Musa alayhis salaam, again Musa alayhis salam is mentioned in an yet another verse of the Quran, another chapter of an amazing story of Musa alayhis salaam, this time, it's not to do with fear around, it's not to do with mental ill as a whole. Rather Musa alayhis salam after being asked by his people as mentioned in some of the Hadith that Who is the most knowledgeable? He mentioned himself because he was a newbie, a newbie of Allah, Allah, Allah. Then Allah gave him ye to say that he is somebody who has knowledge which you don't have, but it was Ali Salam do, did he become arrogant? Did he you know, say that? No, he doesn't

00:21:19--> 00:21:59

know or did he say that? Okay, whatever he knows, I know masala his salam, he got all his things ready. And he got one of the boys to come with him is mentioned, it's usually been known. And they went to looking for this man. And the scholars derived from this as the amount of Ohara Allah mentions in his here. This shows us that, you know, you should go out to mushroom iya basically means it's encouraged to you allow, it's permissible to go out to seek knowledge, especially solid Islamic knowledge. And this was the practice of not only the MBR, as we see Musa alayhis salaam going to learn something new. It was also the practice of Sahaba of the loved one who is mentioned

00:21:59--> 00:22:35

that what their love language just for one Hadith, he traveled a whole month to go and get the Hadith and then he came back. So I think that's, that's something very interesting. Another interesting point is that if you've learned in a certain, you know, the confines of a certain society or community, let's say you've benefited from everybody there, you've got quite a bit of experience. So many times, you'll be completely unaware of what goes on somewhere else in the world will never mind somewhere else in the world, a community that's a few kilometres away from you. And I think one of the things or one of the benefits when you travel, especially to seek Islamic

00:22:35--> 00:22:52

knowledge is you learn that it's it's not you didn't know everything, basically, you are not encompassing of everything, what you knew was very little, there may be other opinions, other ways of seeing the same must Allah and all of these ways are in conformity with the plan and sooner

00:22:54--> 00:23:27

or later so true, this Those are some powerful points. How musala salat wa salam actually traveled in order to gain some knowledge. Solid point there. And exactly, you know, sometimes a situation or circumstance, let alone You know, you've mentioned a community that's further than us, sometimes your neighbors you don't know what's going on in the home, and you don't really understand it, we assume that we do. So lots of animal what Allah knows best. And sometimes we are unaware and make judgments and decisions based on that,

00:23:28--> 00:24:11

you know, unawareness, so to speak, so to speak. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What a fantastic little island and we have Cobra Wei, Musa alayhis salat wa salam had requested that I want to join you, I want to come with you. And he says that how will you have patience on upon that which you have no knowledge of. So this teaches us that when we have no knowledge of something, then it's most likely that we won't have patience on that. Because we don't understand what's going on. As human beings, we crave a reasonable understanding of something, we want to know what's going on. We need to make sense of something. So when we don't and we can't make sense of it. And as we see later on

00:24:11--> 00:24:55

mossadegh salatu salam didn't have the patience. This is a what why are you killing the young boy? And then why are you you know, making a hole in the boat, etc. So and later on when he even helped the boys build the wall up once again. He says, you know, these people refuse to help us yet you helping them build up this worldwide. So he didn't have patience upon that which he had no knowledge of. So even us in our lives when we don't have knowledge of something sometimes we have no patience over it. You don't know what's really happened. And you have no patience, you blow your your fuse, so to speak, you know, you lose your temper. You become angry at something, not to say that musala

00:24:55--> 00:25:00

in salatu salam did but you become angry at something yet. You did it.

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

really understand what was going on you didn't fully grasp the situation. So the lesson would be to learn and fully understand the situation before coming up with a conclusion and reacting or responding to it.

00:25:16--> 00:25:56

You know, as you mentioned, okay fantastico Allah managed to hit the Cobra. The more you know, well known meaning of this verse is about knowledge. Another lesser known meaning of this verse is Cobra here. Another way of interpreting it is Cobra could also come from Ebola. People meaning experience, though how they have hidden at a salon is telling Musa alayhis salam, how can you be patient when it comes to something that you have no experience about? And I think this teaches us that, you know, when you have knowledge, so many times, you don't really know how to, you may not have the experience in implementing this knowledge. So learn from people who have experience in the field,

00:25:56--> 00:26:25

not only Islamic knowledge, other knowledge, also worldly knowledge, you may have read so many books or, you know, you may have gone through university, you have a degree, ask anybody who's been through this system, so to speak, they will tell you, when you get to real life, it's completely different to what's in the books. And that's where this experience comes in, if you don't have the experience, and obviously you won't be patient, and the experience with the knowledge, you know, it's a combination, even a lot you achieve a lot.

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

This is the beauty of the salon. I mean, you know, I use the same verse to extract something, you've used the same verse to extract to a different point altogether, yet it's the same text that Allah subhanho wa Taala These are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he spoke. So it's the Quran is so full of

00:26:45--> 00:26:52

different, you know, points of benefit that we can achieve and really implement in our lives.

00:26:55--> 00:27:23

As you mentioned, so rightly, Sharon, is there anything else you'd like to mention? Or Yes, okay. Yes, yes, actually. So, there were a few points. Let me just revisit him. So, later on, we, later on when mousseline salatu salam he goes they moved right Allah subhana wa autolysis they moved after either la COVID-19 is Tama letter, and they came to a village and they asked the people for some food

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

it stopped at my little cottage stop I'm gonna forget

00:27:29--> 00:27:46

it stopped for about a year the format so they refused to be hospitable to them. However, the data you read with a comma so they found a wall that wanted to fall, so they straightened up at work. So mousseline Salatu was Salam asks him that you know

00:27:48--> 00:28:34

how can you how Why did you do this yet they refused to to help us they refuse to even be hospitable to us. So the message is that you know, you always do good to people even if they are not good to you try and help them try and do good to afford for them because from amongst they may have been people that were good and even evil and bad people that don't really help you in your life try to do goodness towards them try to be tried to have a big heart and understand that perhaps they may have been in the wrongs you know, scenario or situation or circumstance at the time they make excuses for them, try and be as good as possible. Because ultimately, what you do is going in your scale of good

00:28:34--> 00:29:15

deeds and what they do will go in the scale of deeds. such an important point you mentioned you know, it's it's so difficult but even with that, oh faith of Allah and with practice, you would find yourself being able to do good no matter what, even if it's to people who haven't really done good to you. Another interesting point in the same verse, maybe I think you would have touched on it is one of the reasons he mentioned that he straightens The world is what kind of Abou marsali has, and they father was a pious man, some of them are faciliate mentioned that this shows us that a father who's pious, who you know, who fears Allah who follows his instruction etc. Be even in love even a

00:29:15--> 00:29:53

lot. The children are also protected. Yes, they are people who are exception to the rule, we find the son of no Halley's Salaam, etc. However, usually you will find that when there is a family, especially a good family and those who are pious, here we find the Father has passed away but Allah protects the children and he protects that wealth for the children. So I think it's very important for us you know, later on you become parents or you worried about your children sometimes you have to fix yourself first before trying to fix it you know your children or everybody else and be vanilla after that. Yes, you try with him, but the pieces will come into place with Mila

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

is sorry just to correct myself earlier. I did say that masala is Salatu was Salam said

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

Why

00:30:01--> 00:30:44

are you fixing the warrior? They refuse to be hospitable. But that wasn't his statement. All he said was Carmelo should tell him to have Tyler he ajala. He said that if you wanted, you could have taken some wage for this, you could have taken some reward for it. So to correct myself, because in the view of Allah subhanho wa Taala obviously had the best of character and he wouldn't have been asking him that, you know, why didn't Why are you helping or doing a good deed? Rather, he all he said is that perhaps you could have taken a reward in return for the work that you have done to Panama. Now you mentioned the story of Musa alayhis salam it just came to my mind that so far we've passed the

00:30:44--> 00:31:17

story of Musa alayhis salam on several occasions, looking at the story as a whole you would find a lot of love Allah speaks about masala his alarm as a child when he was born. Elijah lo Allah also speaks about him in the palace of Freetown after that, when he grew up, he speaks about his marriage, he speaks about his difficulties, he speaks about this journey or this trip that he went on to get some knowledge and experience an amazing, amazing surah. And definitely one of the best of the best people to have walked this as Musashi, Salatu was center.

00:31:18--> 00:32:00

You know, late at the end where mousseline sauce was silences, or hidden alayhi salatu wa sallam says that Philip will be new or Vedic, this is D Now the point of partying between me and you. Meaning this a point at which a person can't carry on with you know, in this particular situation. So some situations reach that point, when you've reached that point, then you should know that this is the end of the road between me and you. And it happens you know, sometimes I receive messages from people and this is not to say everybody is like this, but some people are so persistent and insistent on some point and something and they carry on and they keep bothering you, etc. So I have

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

a fear of obeying your baby If I don't respond to you. That is that is the you know, the separation between us It doesn't mean that we hate each other or we have bad blood, it just means that okay, I can't carry on beyond this point. So if this pious person reached that point, then who are we and I think we can all benefit from this you know what I've sometimes certain relationships or certain things can't carry on even though this goodness in them, they can't carry on It's okay. It doesn't matter.

00:32:29--> 00:32:50

Part and move on. You know, you mentioned this this point in South Africa, I have a few Albania with me. And earlier on allegedly wireless addressing the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam You know, when they were not the messenger, but the people amongst them were arguing about the dog and how many people were there, this fella tomography him in LA Milan, who

00:32:52--> 00:33:36

basically don't carry on arguing and back and forth, some things are fruitless to carry on with. And you know, if you put it so rightly that nicely, however, if you have to have a new baby, basically, this is now the separation between myself and yourself. And then he still tells Musa alayhis salam is his own Abu cabrita, we may start there. alayhis salam, basically, I'm going to tell you what you are unable to be patient about another interesting point in the story, when he you know, he damaged the ship. Because it's mentioned there was a king, who would take the ships that were in front says what kind of wha hoo Malik. Wallah usually means behind. But in this instance, it means in front and

00:33:36--> 00:34:16

if you read the books in Arabic, you would find this referring to implant, a lot of the English translations mentioned behind Elmo him, he says that, because this king was taking these ships, so these boats, he tried to destroy a little bit of it. So if he saw it, he would leave it, he usually wanted a ship that was as mentioned by some people who wanted to ship that was perfect. And some of them were facility mentioned that sometimes or even the football, sometimes to destroy a part of something, in order for the rest of it to remain them, this is allowed. And you will find that, especially when it comes to business, again, this ship is talking about wealth he was saving there,

00:34:16--> 00:34:28

well, he had to sacrifice a little bit of it to save the whole thing. And again, that's also looking at the bigger picture. You know, sometimes you've got to deal in business dealing, in order to try and save, you know,

00:34:29--> 00:34:46

$5,000 let's say you want to go to court and you want to go through so many processes, you end up spending, you know, 10 times more than that in order to attain something which you may not attain. So there's a time where you have to sacrifice a little bit for the bigger picture or the greater good.

00:34:47--> 00:35:00

What a powerful point I hate. That's amazing, Mashallah, yes, absolutely. I never thought of that. as something that's just really come to light. You know, I think it's also important to mention that the

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

is to do with yours and what you have because obviously, if he knew that he knew the people, he knew Allah subhanho wa Taala, we had some link with Allah subhanho wa Taala he had knowledge from him.

00:35:12--> 00:35:38

So we don't have that knowledge. So we can't go about other people's businesses destructive or destroying theirs, or a property destroying this thing, it's for the greater good, that would be wrong, because, you know, some people end up trying to literally play the the role of God by saying that, you know, let me destroy this of this person. And ultimately, it would be better for him because So, you know, just just to clarify that because really, you get all sorts of people out there.

00:35:39--> 00:35:59

Yes, at the end of the day, you know, maybe if you use your own wealth, yes. Or you've been appointed as a manager to see over this wealth, but it's someone else's wealth. And you know, sometimes as you mentioned, there's no apparent thing and this guy says that you know what, let me destroy his car because he may be going to comment center he didn't go to the mosque God, that's not for you.

00:36:05--> 00:36:08

Jeff, and I think we've lost you.

00:36:10--> 00:36:13

Yes, I keep disconnecting today, right.

00:36:15--> 00:36:20

Yeah, it's a little bit but Alhamdulillah I think we've had a good session. Is there anything else you'd like to mention?

00:36:21--> 00:37:02

No, inshallah, I think we look forward to the story of the name tomorrow. inshallah tomorrow again, we go over the story of a little town name then a legend of Allah mentioned Surah Maryam in Surah Taha, a lot of stories mentioned in this use, or in these verses, I think it's important for us to go over them ourselves take our time. And you know, we cannot cover every single part of the story. We can't even cover the whole story, we just taking a pointer to a pointer to and we carry on, you know, Alhamdulillah we benefit from one another and we also benefit from those who are following We ask Allah Allah Allah to grant us goodness, Jeff and I shall we see you tomorrow.

00:37:04--> 00:37:07

Just like a lucky cinematic. I mean, we have

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

to lie to you about that.
