Illa Allah al Amin will begin a study in one second you want to sell him Allah I mean, Gambia you are Emmanuel mousseline. Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germain Allahu Allah setelah in LA magenta Hussin Halawa intentar journal has an either settler or BSC wala to assert what a min bill here we can strain. We thank Allah who believes that he will Jarrell for having gathered us here today once again. And we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to surround us with the mela Iike. And to cause his mercy and his Sakeena to descend upon us. And to raise us with the MBR Alamo. Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,
tell what cool means to lean on to something. So if you are seeing to be leaning onto a tree, you could be said to be having doing toward cool on that tree which means to lean on to it. Now, this is why we use the word to work cool for Allah subhanahu Attallah we say that we trust in Allah subhanahu Attallah so we put our Tawakkol and our trust in Allah subhanahu Attallah but in order for this to happen, we need to have what is known as hostile vanilla, which is good thoughts of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala knowing that if I am to take this path, and I trust in Allah subhana wa Tada then he will see me through he will drive me forward, he will give me this goal of mine. Allah subhanho
wa Taala says, For either of them taffeta, what can Allah
when you have taken a decision, when you have decided as to what you want to do, then trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala
the mother of Musa alayhi salatu salam was tested with this trust. So you find that at the time fiddle around was told that there is going to come a male child that is going to take your life, a male child that is going to cause perhaps not take your life, but cause your destruction. So Phil around decided to kill all of the male children that came after that. And he continued to do this for some time until they reached an understanding. They realize that if we do this, then we will have no male children in the community. How does it carry on? How does how do they reproduce and procreate. So he decided to kill the male children in one year, and to leave them the next year. Now
Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam was born in the year where the male children were being killed. It is said that his mother had such a light pregnancy, that the people who are going around looking for pregnant women did not realize that she was expecting miracle number one from Allah subhanho wa taala. He gave her such a light pregnancy that they did not realize that she was expecting so she gave birth to Musa Elena Salatu was salon and she hid him away. And your own had these search parties that would go around the houses looking for male children. So
she would take the word Musa alayhis salatu salam the child and place him in the Nile. And she would tie a string onto this box, you know, she would place him in a box and place him in the Nile tile, tie a string to that box and let him go. And when the search party came in, they would look for any male children leave and carry on. Now.
It so happened that one day, she actually put that box or that basket into the Nile and she forgot to tie the rope. Perhaps she was in a rush these people have come in she quickly goes out of her home, puts him into the box and lets him go. Allah subhanho wa Taala actually says that we are the ones who instructed her to do this. This is the narrative that is there in the stories, but we hear from Allah subhanho wa Taala himself where our hyena ILA
on do your effect you that he siala in the field.
What are the four v one Zanni in
Do movie like Elijah, you know who mean and you know, serene. And we inspired to the mother of Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam that gives suckle to this child breastfeed him, and then throw him into the Nile, put him into the Nile. And don't lose hope. Don't be sad. What to Harvey, don't fear what zani and don't grieve in our do who II like we will return him to you and we will make him from amongst the messengers. You see,
when seeking to protect something, naturally, you want to hold that close to yourself. You want to bring it close to yourself. Perhaps there is an enemy between you and your child. What do you do? You place yourself between you and that? The enemy and that child to protect it to defend it? I'm here for you. But here Musa Salatu was Salam. His mother is being told to throw this child into the river. Allahu Akbar, which mother would have the heart to throw the child into the river but Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam mother did it without question, knowing that this is what Allah subhanahu wa taala wanted off her. So she throws the child into the river and it bobs along, and it ends up at
none other than the doorstep of the pharaoh around. Allahu Akbar. Allah subhanahu Attallah sins Musa alayhis salatu salam to the cause of the fear to the cause of the danger and the harm in order to protect him. Allahu Akbar, if we just ponder upon that for a moment, we will come to realize that if we are to trust Allah subhanahu, WA Tada, He will protect us, He will guide us He will show us the way and he will take us right through to the end, you see
the wife of around. So this child Musa, and she picked him up, looked at him or it is said that some of the servants picked him up and took him to the wife of around and she fell in love with this child. She had this emotion that Allah subhanaw taala placed within her heart sympathy, empathy, love, all of these emotions are going through her heart, and she tells you to home lead up to room as
death either more than one hula Sharon. She said, Don't kill him, don't kill him. Perhaps he will benefit us. And perhaps we will take him as a son, we will adopt him, don't kill him. Leave him here. So Allah subhanahu wa tallas plan is going according to what he wants, and he's protecting Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam in this manner.
So now the Mother mother of Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam has been separated from the child. Naturally, this causes some grief. Allah subhanaw taala says, will ask behalf for
me Musa Do you God that led to be the healer hula
can be returned goon Amina meaning and the heart of Musa the mother of Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam became empty, it was devoid. She was feeling like she lacked something in her life. She was longing to be with her child. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says she would have spoken about Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam to the rest of the people started talking about that grief, but we tied up her heart, we tied up her heart. So when you trust Allah subhanho wa Taala he will tie up your emotions. You see, if you go embark on a task, and you want to do something, and you trust in yourself and you believe in yourself and you believe in those around you, when you fail or you are failing, it
becomes difficult for you, you begin to suffer anxiety, look, people are going to say I'm failing at what I'm doing. Look at what I've done. I've spent so much resources etc. I'm failing. I've spent $1,000,000.02 million dollars on this and I'm failing what's going to happen. How am I going to get out of this? And you begin to question but if you trusted Allah subhanahu wa taala in the first place, Lola or Robert Tonner Allah, Allah subhanahu Attallah will tie up your heart hold your heart string in place. Allah will open up a door for me. I will be able to get through this this morning.
comes from what the what cool and good thought of Allah subhanahu Attallah thinking that Allah is Most Merciful, most forgiving, most strong, he is the most powerful, He will take me through. So when you think good of Allah subhanahu Uttara, he treats you in this manner, and then in the one knee appdb I am with my servant, as he treats me as he thinks of me, if he thinks good of me, then I will treat him in a good way, if he thinks bad of me and evil of me, then I will treat him in a bad way. So think good of Allah subhanahu Uttara don't allow shaytan to tell you that your Lord is not kind your Lord is not merciful, know that Allah is telling you, he is kind, he is merciful, He is
most forgiving. And these are the thoughts that we should have of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tied up in her heart, but the mother of Musa alayhis salatu salam knew that I need to do something about it. I need to send someone to look for this child. So she told the sister of Musa, the eldest sister of Musa alayhi salaatu wa salaam, wa Taala to evoke Dini, impulsing, if and also want to be here, on June Obi Wan, hula Sharon. So she said to the sister that go out and follow him, look for him, search for him find him. So she went out and she started searching. And she got to a point where she saw Musa alayhis salatu salam in the palace of Freetown,
but she kept a distance away and observed. And Allah subhanahu wa taala made it such that when they circled Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam or they tried to circle him, he would not take to the breast, he would not circle from anyone. So they went around in the marketplace looking for someone who could circle this child and the sister of Musa Allah in Salatu Salam is following him now. So she sees that they are looking for someone so she says to them, hell, no kumara and leave at falloon and wala comb woman lamb oh now so in rune Should I not show you the people have a home who will look after him, and they are well wishes to him. At this juncture, the people who are searching said how
do you know this? How do you know this? They suspected her that how does she know that? I know this home that will look after him and they are well wishes. Why would they do that? So she was intelligent. She said look, these people love the king. They love the Pharaoh. So as a result, they will look after him because they want the Pharaoh to be happy and she is looking for some income. So Allah subhanahu wa taala you remember how Allah subhanho wa Taala promised the mother of Musa Alia salatu salam in Allah do who you like, we will return him to you. So Allah subhanahu wata, Allah says for them who Isla mini que Tambomachay no taxes and while ITAR Allah and our della he help God,
what a King Solomon layer.
So we returned him to his mother, so that our eyes may be cool, and she does not grieve. Musa alayhis Salatu Salam is reunited with his mother, and his mother is happy, joyful, and not only that, Allah subhanahu wa taala provides a source of income from the home of the enemy of Iran, of Musa Alayhi Salatu was Salam from being home of the enemy of Musa alayhi salatu salam, the Treasury would actually take out a stipend for the month Musa alayhi salatu salam, you're looking after this child, here's some money, here's some wealth. You see how when she trusted Allah subhanho wa Taala not only did she get what she wanted, she wanted the safety of Musa alayhis salatu salam. She wanted
him to be okay, she got that and she got even more Allah subhanahu wa taala gave her a source of income that she could use on the family spend on the family. You see how Allah took care of her. Allah took care of her. Sometimes we are going through dire straits. We're going through problems and difficulties perhaps family members are dying around us so someone has been afflicted with cancer or someone something bad has happened to us. And we begin to lose hope. Don't trust Allah subhana wa Tada trust his plan. Are you not a believer? Do you not realize that Allah subhanahu wa taala will take care
Have you Allah subhana wa Tada will give you days of ease in the manner that he has given you days of hardship. You're going through that problem right now you will see better days when you trust Allah subhanaw taala and say yeah Allah Hey leave it to you, then Allah Allah bless that you will General will provide for you in a manner that you cannot imagine. Or may at our gala Allah He felt more husband, the one who trusts in Allah subhanahu wa taala. Allah is sufficient for him, Allah He is enough for him. So here she is reunited with her child. And later on.
Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam is the one who ends up the enemy of Iran. And he is the cause of the downfall of the kingdom of Iran. So when we SMA II had been oppressed on the earth they had, they had caused so much problems. In fact, Saudi crown had caused so many problems who but who is he? He had taken them as slaves, he was using them for free, enslaving them causing hardship and harm to them. And Phil Musa Alayhi Salatu was Salam comes and he stands up for these people. These people who have been downtrodden, he stands up for them. And he says, Don't worry, Allah subhanahu wa taala will take care of us. Allah subhanho wa Taala caused the downfall of Fira out at the hands of Musa
alayhis salam. And as a result, that action that Musa Alayhi Salatu was Salam 's mother did where she trusted Allah subhanho wa Taala threw him into the Nile released him into the Nile was actually the cause of the Savior of the entire Middle East. They were saved. Look at how that one act of selflessness and trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala actually benefited the entire society and community. So this action that we do, which is called Tawakkol, Lea Teema that Allah which is trusting in Allah subhanahu Attallah when we do it, Allah subhanahu Attallah will take care of us take care of our progeny, and those around us as well. Our community, the society as well will be
taken care of. You see, this did not happen only from Musa alayhis Salatu Salam o the mother of Musa Khalifa salatu salam, new Alayhi Salatu was Salam is told, and your smile for you cabbie. Are you mean our Hina Duvall 25 in the in our Mo, that build an ark, build an ark and with our oversight Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying we are watching you build an ark. Right? So you build that ark way. Where was no halogen salatu salam in the middle of the desert. There was no water around it. So when people passed by him, cool Lemma marala He made
you call me he says You mean that when people passed by him, they mocked at him. They joked at him, they laughed at him. Look at him. Look at what he's doing. He's building an ark in the middle of the of the desert. What sense does this make doesn't make any sense at all. But Allah subhanahu wa taala told him to do it. So he did it. Not long after that the Ark actually came to use, the flood came. And due to the severe flood, they needed to embark on the ark. So here, the onea the wish of new Elijah Salatu Salam is coming through us for the ark. It's actually happening in front of his eyes. And then Allah subhanahu Attallah says, not long after that all of the people were destroyed. All of
the people drowned including the son of new Allah your Salatu was Salam. Maria Alayhis Salam. She goes out with her her child, in fact, she was expecting and she goes out looks for a secluded place to give birth to the child. Why? Because people would blame her people who would say how did you come up with a child? You will not married? What happened? How did this child come to be? So she goes to a secluded place, but tell her that mu Dooney him he Giba
Tibet let's be him. I can see. It says that when she conceived him she actually went from Tibet that we mccannon Cassia she went to a far place secluded, away from the eyes of the people, but that was the cause of her being mentioned in
The Quran today that was the cause of her remembrance amongst the times. It carried on that remembrance from when she was born from when she was existence until today we will mentioning Maryam Ali Hassan and that son of hers, because Lisa Allahu Salatu was Salam. He great to be of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So her trust in Allah subhanahu wa taala that you would take her through, actually return a lot of benefit. So these are some of the examples that we can take from the lives of the Gambia. salat wa salam, Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam actually is ready to slaughter his son to sacrifice his son. And Allah subhanho wa Taala replaces him with a ram and today we read in the
Quran in Ibrahim Mecca and
Bonnie tell me, he Hanifa indeed, Ibrahim was an ummah. carnita and he was looking devoted to Allah subhanho wa taala. So as a result, Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him mentioned amongst the nations to come afterwards, you see where to work cool. And trust and belief in Allah subhanahu wa taala will take you thinking good of Allah subhanahu wa taala assuming the best of him, it will take you further than you can imagine. May Allah subhanahu wa Tada grant us the ability to understand and may Allah subhanahu Attallah grant us the ability to practice on the Strait of Tawakkol Amin SallAllahu, wasallam Obara, Kerala nabina, Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine
