Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah

00:00:37--> 00:01:19

happy woman, whatever, but Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu. Welcome to this next installment of the life of NaVi Moosa and we are currently dealing with certain causes. We know from what has happened previously, that fit our own was a tyrannical ruler, ruling Egypt, that he had a dream that one of the people who he was a place of over he was it was a tyrant over the Israelites that they would rise up to overthrow him. And his dream or this inspiration that he had led him to actually murder all the male children, and then eventually decided, based on some advice that you would murder the male children one year and keep them alive in another year. But then Allah calls

00:01:19--> 00:01:43

that Nabil Moosa, who was actually the the person that that we haven't dreamed of, was going to throw was going to overthrow fear around that we moved to Islam was born in the year of the children being murdered. So his mother had to secretly take him and and feed him breastfeed him. And then when the gods were coming to to kill the babies, she put him in a in a basket and sent him down the river now,

00:01:44--> 00:02:28

the wife of Iran, asiya, very good woman, she found him she decided that she's going to claim him or adopt him. And obviously, we see how, how this is all against all odds, a locos that never Moosa refused to drink from any witness except his own mother. So that the promise that he made to his mother would actually come through and she became his witness. So the very Mother of Moosa becomes the witness. And Naveen will say, get the the life or the upbringing in the home of your own. And all of this is to bring about this ultimate plan, which no one could have known about at the time, but Allah knew about it, and all of this had to happen. So that alysse plan could come to fruition.

00:02:28--> 00:03:03

We are now on verse number 14, our bill administrator on the regime, while ama and when Bulava pallava he reached, as should the who he is maturity when he reached the age of maturity now, in other places in the Quran. Allah speaks about the age of maturity being 40. So it's probable that Nabi Musa was around that age when when this verses is referring to him, because the Quran ufsc Roberto, who by Allah, some of it explains at this, it's not difficult, but Willow Island.

00:03:04--> 00:03:49

Nonetheless, nonetheless, he reached an age of maturity. So you could obviously understand, and this is all our data tells us about this particular moment in his life was stellar, he became he became, you know, grown up and he was now level headed and he was at his full capacity Now, this full capacity, his appearance was good, he was a good handsome man Mashallah. But he was also very, very strong. Right? Now we move sir was known to be big and strong, and we're going to see how that plays out very shortly. Unless he's at a no hockman we had given him wisdom, or element and we had given him knowledge. Notice how there's a difference between wisdom and knowledge. And also, notice how

00:03:49--> 00:04:35

Allah mentions wisdom first, and then knowledge. Because of, you know, knowledge is valuable. But it could be such a waste if it is not accompanied by wisdom, work at Alec and Nigel Marcin and like that really convinced the doers of good. You know, Subhanallah we can learn something just from this verse alone, we can't, we can't get too detailed about it back. If you want, knowledge and wisdom, Allah says what Cat Daddy can address in mahcine. That is how we reward those who do good. So do good. Be a good person. And a good person is not our own understanding of what it means to be a good person. being a good person is abiding by the laws of Allah. being a good person is staying away

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

from what Allah prohibited. And doing what Allah Allah made followed, and then trying to be as consistent as possible. On extra you know, now I feel asuna that is what it means to be a good person, not with you and I decide and if we are, if we become good people, and we live our lives, right, just leave in the evening Allah. Allah will grant us knowledge and wisdom. It's important always that we think like this as believers knowledge

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

is not something that we just get from the sky, you know, you have to make the effort with it. So what's the difference between somebody studying at a university and seeking a particular course of study and they study night and day. And they believe that the harder they work, the more they will learn, minus the belief that knowledge is essentially only from Allah Subhana Allah, compared to the person who does all of that, but also believe that ultimately knowledge is from Allah, both of them will earn information, both of them will get, you know, what we call knowledge, but one of them would have not whatever knowledge that is placed, and the other one will have information.

00:05:42--> 00:06:25

And we can see that in society, you know, you get, okay if you complete history. So once upon a time, you had doctors, they weren't earning nearly as much as doctors today. But they made such a huge contribution to the world and the progress of medical science, can be to a doctor today would just simply be earning a wages, what's the difference? The one was motivated by Deen and by his belief in Allah in the Quran, the other one is motivated by his own selfish needs and once so that's a side thing. But it's a very important side lesson, the more we are, you know, the more we improve in our morality and our ethics become good people, the more Allah will open up the doors of

00:06:25--> 00:07:08

knowledge and wisdom for us in the light either. It's not just about facts, especially when it comes to religious knowledge. It's about doing good, accompanied by the if it will lead to knowledge as well as wisdom inshallah. So betina we Moosa reaches the age of maturity of strong, we gave him wisdom, we gave him knowledge, and like that we reward the good doers. Now, so this is very much away from the beginning. So we got the introduction, then, you know, like in the scene of a movie, then all of a sudden the person is now grown up, I'm thinking of The Lion King, we, we, Simba is walking across with the moon and Puma and they singing the song that they sang the on the log thing,

00:07:08--> 00:07:52

it was akuna, Matata, or something like that. And all of a sudden, they big, you know, somebody says big and older. So none of the Moosa and so that was around, we don't get all the details of his childhood, which you might find in Israel, Juliet and you might find it in biblical stories and narratives and so forth. But we get to the point which Allah Subhana Allah really wants us to see and to take note of and that is so important. So what is it? Let's see, what the Holland Medina he enters into the town into the city is Egypt. Allah Haney at the time of letting go of and mindfulness mean, of its people. So what this is referring to according to the mufa serum is the

00:07:52--> 00:07:52

afternoon.

00:07:53--> 00:08:34

It is in the natural world, in the world away from city life, and, you know, technology, the natural world sleeps at midday. So they wake up very early at sunrise, they proceed all the way till about the whole time that either before or after the the natural world goes to sleep. That's called the kalola. And, you know, in many countries, this is still a standard principle, that at a certain time, shops will close, businesses will close, everybody goes to take a nap. I'm sure those who have traveled and are watching this can can chain the experience and perhaps you can even you know, tell us about your experiences in the comment section. Just so that we can also know we are the places in

00:08:34--> 00:09:20

the world we this is actually still taking place. And maybe if you're doing this in if it's a habit in your family and in your life, but that's how our natural circadian rhythms work. We need to take a nap in the afternoon. Unfortunately, we moved away from that so now that we move says going it's afternoon but there are still some people who would be awake because it's not like a compulsory thing to sleep it's it's just the normal thing to do. And is in the city for Rajat Fei even finds in the city, Roger Laney two Min yakata Dylan and the These men are fighting they're going at it has I mean she it the one man is from his Shia, meaning his group and which group is he from? And then we

00:09:20--> 00:09:33

Moosa is from the peninsula, he is an Israelite and this man is from the Israelites, or has I mean I do we and the other one is from his enemy. So notice Allah calls him his enemy, so he was among the right, the people of Pharaoh.

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

At this point, NaVi Moosa, Allah salat wa salam is not considered an enemy of Pharaoh. But Allah calls him you know, this is this one is from his enemy. First of all, I will let the men see it so the two men are fighting obviously when we say fighting, we mean the cop. Pharaohs god, he's busy punishing the the Israelite because they were slaves.

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

But you know how when God is busy warping or busy beating a slave, and the slave maybe grabs the worker, he grabs the hand or he's trying to resist, because there's not many people around so there's not like the other gods can come in and fight with him.

00:10:17--> 00:10:59

But then they seem to be Moosa and the Israelite turns in Abu Musab festa author who seeks assistance from him. You let him in she it and this is the one from his own people. I let him in I do we any Sikhs, maybe Moses alpino. Please help me against this. This man is, is an enemy, right? he's complaining and he's clearly being punished. So what does that remove say do removes as a decent person, he goes the and he tries to help him. But listen to the words that Allah says for workers who move sir. Now we Moosa you know you know that word, what is the other word sound like for workers, who moves a handle, I always enjoy translating this, because just like in English, you

00:10:59--> 00:11:48

have something called Onomatopoeia. We the words sound like like what they actually mean. You have a similarly a similar thing in Arabic as well. And this word for work as a Moosa it sounds like a karate chop, and it means that nobody moves I gave him one shot. And it was such a shot by no intention of NaVi Moosa at all. He hit the men intending to simply free, he's the Israelite, but by hitting the men just know, as a prevention or as as a, as an intervention, rather, the man immediately succumbed. And he died. And a lot because now he moves that was big. I'm not laughing at the fact that the men died. I'm laughing at this a sense of comedy in here. Because swallow maybe I

00:11:48--> 00:12:17

shouldn't say so. Because people might not understand or appreciate what I'm saying. So I stuff it'll allow them. But what I'm trying to say is this. There's a sense of who says, big statues showing out how amazingly powerful he is, that he just goes and he tries to intervene. And by accident, you know, a heat caused the man to die. It's panel of a worker who Moosa falcoda and a and then the man died instantly. Color, the NaVi Moosa, you know, he's a prophet of God.

00:12:18--> 00:12:41

He's a righteous man, by no means would he do this intention and he says, has i mean i'm really shaped on immediately feels remorse, and he says, This is of the handiwork of Satan. This is a satanic act that I just committed here, in now who I do want. He says, A Satan is an enemy more linlin, who seeks to sin people astray mubin and is a manifest enemy.

00:12:42--> 00:13:26

Subhana Allah. This alone shows you the amount of Nabhi Moosa because, number one, immediately he shows remorse, I think the most is one of the key factors in doba. If you want to know did you truly make their way to Allah subhana wa tada about something that you did in your life? Ask yourself the question, am I still proud of those things? Or that particular thing? Do I still speak when I mean, two things I still speak about in other good old days when we did this, and we did that. Or is it something that I learned a lesson from, but I don't celebrate the fact that I did those things. remos is a key, very key, a part of tober. And Avi Moosa shows us this instantly. Second thing is he

00:13:26--> 00:14:06

does he doesn't start blaming, no, it's not. It's your fault. And it's God's fault. And I wish this and I wish they know, immediately recognizes it's easy weakness, and that shaytan caused him to go astray. So he blames the right person, he blames the right being with Satan. Allah protect us from shaitaan always. So that's the translation. I'm trying this method now. So I'm not putting the translation on the screen immediately. So that you actually listen to the the the word for word translation of the Arabic and the after, you know you can always rewind and pause and read it again. And just follow the difference inshallah, to Allah. But I do want this to be a journey that we all

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

take together from the words of Allah Subhana Allah. So now we are sitting with this with this. This problem, no one saw.

00:14:15--> 00:14:22

He saw Allah saw the men who sought his assistance the Israelites he saw, that's it.

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

No one else was interested because it was either Hany off let him in Alia was in the afternoon everybody was asleep. So now what now we move to Allah says Islam is walking around with this guilt with the city most. Next verse number 15. Caller he says Rob beanie Valentin FC, again showing the the stature of the man of Abu Musa he was physically strong. He was good looking. He was a person of strong faith. He says, Oh, my Lord, indeed I volunteer enough. See, I've wronged myself. Further fiddly. So forgive me for hofeller

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

level and immediately Allah forgave him in now who indeed he who aloha food is the most forgiving. Rahim, the Most Merciful. I would like to take a moment here to point out one thing. Now, a few things, firstly, the most is followed up by repentance. So doba you have to regret what you did. You have to promise not to do it again. And you have to turn to Allah Subhana Allah begging for his forgiveness. So behind Allah, that promise, that's a promise to Allah that you'll never do it again. And that Toba essentially, I mean, we've discussed the elements of tober in the past. Another factor that I want to mention other than tober is the formula being utilized, there better be musala salat

00:15:47--> 00:16:09

wa salam. And this is a challenge. I would like you to go in look in the Quran for instances in which the prophets and the messengers in the pious may do it. Allah Subhana Allah, for Allah to forgive them. Look at the prophets, I assume and the type of formulas that he used to seek Allah's forgiveness. And tell me if you see a pattern,

00:16:10--> 00:16:51

and the pattern that that you will see and the challenge is for you to actually go in recognize the pattern, and tell me if I'm right or wrong, but what I've noticed is that the MBR, the prophets and the messengers that always use this pattern, if you and I were to ask us forgiveness, we would simply just say, you know, stuff, it'll last they'll feel a lot less eager forgiveness, and there's nothing wrong with that. But the power of so far, comes when the person asking for forgiveness, first presents the weakness before Allah, but is into the sin before Allah acknowledges the sin before Allah comes to Allah with all humility, and then asks all of us forgiveness. That's a super

00:16:51--> 00:17:30

powerful form of of Toba of seeking forgiveness that is found in see you do is still far if you don't know what I'm speaking about research what is say you do is still felt the best form of seeking Allah's forgiveness It's as soon as you have the profit isn't very safe morning and evening. So we should learn that memorize that inshallah with the IRA very, very important. But look at the pattern and what you're actually saying and say the list of right alone and therapy not going to go through the whole one that's going to take some time, but be in the light to either memorize it, delete it, it's a beautiful door, look at the door of have nabby universe in the fish or the whale

00:17:30--> 00:18:15

and is the making the art in the darkness and he says La ilaha illa Anta super Hanukkah in the country, not only me, there is no god except you. I am of the wrongdoers. So all of the time in every occasion that we see a beautiful repentance from a prophet to a messenger, we noticed that it comes with this formula. rabine Valentina, see you cannot be musasa Oh my Lord, I have wronged myself. I am weak. I'm the cause of my downfall. I am the one who committed a sin. I've done loom loom is oppression. It's injustice. It's absolute wrongdoing. Foul fiddly. Now you all are you Please forgive me. Then the second part of the formula after admitting your own weakness in your own

00:18:15--> 00:18:38

wrongdoing. Second part of the formula is declaring the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala so behind NACA, you are perfect Allah in me indeed. I come to me in a volume and I am of the wrongdoers, two parts one part I am the weak one and the part you are the strong one. La ilaha illa Anta is no god except you you are strong, you are amazing. You are law. You're the only Allah

00:18:39--> 00:19:22

Subhana Allah you are perfect or Allah in me indeed I couldn't. I am minute volley mean I'm of the wrongdoers. alojamento de la ilaha illa Anta calacatta Nima and abacha all of that is praising Allah. Well another article article Mr. Tato. Old to becoming Sheree mass enough to now you declaring your weakness be far less behind with either Bula cabina Matic Allah boo boo them before fiddly, only then you ask Allah forgiveness. So this magic formula it's not spelled out for us always. But I'm spending it at right now. When you turn to Allah is Ramadan, at night at iftaar at Soho throughout the days in the nights of Ramadan, don't just say Allah forgive me Allah forgive me,

00:19:22--> 00:19:59

Allah forgive me, but tap into the magic of the ayah and the beauty of the door as the MBA alumnus salat wa salam, I am wrong. And then you list why you are wrong to Allah. Allah knows but although ancestor make dua to Allah, I cheated. I committed Zina. I took drugs, I stole, I murdered, I ate Riba. You know, I feed my family with Reba, you know, whatever you did. You don't need to tell anybody else. There's no confusion in Islam, but this confession to Allah. So when you admit these things to Allah, it will humble you before God

00:20:00--> 00:20:32

You can do it secret You can cry before left behind with Allah. And then you declare the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah you are the most forgiving you are the Most Merciful, Allah you are perfect Allah you are hamara I mean, can use the 99 Names of Allah Subhana Allah, you can use the doors of the NBA as a muscle that was Sam. And only after that now you're big on list forgiveness, right? And that is something that I personally found a lot of value in and I hope you find value in that as well in sha Allah, back to the story of nebby moves so he's making to it Allah,

00:20:33--> 00:20:54

Allah I've wronged myself, forgive me, who can forgive you? Forgive me and then for Hoffer, Allah who and then Allah forgave him. The last point in this particular verse is you find a letting us about an incident in the life of Nabi Musa la Salatu wassalam. No one could have possibly known this Illa Allah except Allah in the Mimosa.

00:20:55--> 00:21:14

So we ask, why does Allah mentioned he skips his entire childhood and then he mentions this incident? Obviously there's a huge reason why. But this this dialogue between Allah and Obi Moosa is not critical to the story of Allah could have lifted out of the studio would have made sense, right?

00:21:15--> 00:21:57

But it's critical to us as believers, because here we can see a formula and we can see a door r by n v of Allah to Allah and you can see the power of this door and you can see how to apply this to our wind to apply this door and the result of fiddly Allah forgive me. Next word, fella, fella, and then he forgave him. Instant. That's the beauty of this is teaching us when something like this happens, you know something similar. This is how you respond. you respond with this remorse you respond with these words, and this is a profit. Here's what he said. This is what happened. I forgave him. He does take a lesson from that inshallah to Allah ladipo Toma Rahmatullah never, ever lose hope, in

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

the mercy of Allah, in the who, who Allah furuta him Didi is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. Now what happens next Subhana Allah, what happens next is, you know, besides the, the most of the fields in the dualities making tall, and we'll continue with that in the next lesson. There's also a very serious plot.

00:22:22--> 00:22:40

Block reveal that happens, because now the moose is now working about in the town with the city most nobody knows what's happening. And then the same thing that happened the day before. The two people are fighting one of the Israelites, one of the soldiers, and Avi moose has to intervene. It's behind the law.

00:22:41--> 00:22:51

The plot thickens, but we'll talk about that next time. So Lola, who is sitting there, Mohammed hamdu, lillahi Rabbil alameen Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
