smilla rahmanir rahim

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

hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah while he was a biggie Obi

00:00:11 --> 00:00:12

will commence from

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

verse number 54

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

just briefly go through the remainder of the hookah

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

no 53

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

Soraka was 53

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

will move to the moon and now have one new unknown worker

00:00:39 --> 00:00:55

and Hamas refer the criminals will see the fire on the dev cam for one new there will be certain and never more work to have that they will end up the hill for the while I'm usually do an Hamas reefer and they won't find any escape from the at all.

00:00:58 --> 00:01:19

While aka disorder of nafi helper annalena sim including the method we Allah have put forth for humankind in this for an example or any type of example or can insano x Russia in gender but humankind they are by nature argumentative This is a very key point here

00:01:21 --> 00:01:26

that human Can't they are by nature argumentative you see this one thing if we call each other argumentative

00:01:28 --> 00:01:31

but when Allah would designed us and created as causes argumentative

00:01:32 --> 00:01:45

is no disputing that that means it's built into our nature that we by nature want to resist that which comes to us of information. So just keep that in mind.

00:01:46 --> 00:02:28

All I say is why men * what two things man can uh you know, from believing in the gentleman who the when guidance comes to them? Where instead of you, Robin, for them to submit Of course, and then seek forgiveness of the Lord for the wrongdoings. In other words, as we see right at the beginning of the court. And then we added committed some something that he wasn't supposed to. It gets sent down to earth he submits it turns the Atlantic it makes Toba and then all this is what we sent him down guidance. So when ever guidance comes to you from me, who say no follows the guidance, they will have no fear they will not leave. So that's the way you can suppose to respond. Allah taught us

00:02:28 --> 00:02:39

that through the the script of the of the Adam a belief story, right? That's the script that should be supposed to follow. That's the play that we take our cue from.

00:02:40 --> 00:03:27

But the nature of humankind is that the argument? So you're going to find as we do, that people resist guidance coming to them. So what is guidance guidance is do this, don't do that believe this, don't believe that? Follow this. Don't follow that. It's instructions. But it's instructions have a holistic nature. It's not just like a one click instruction. It's how to live life. So when guidance comes to people, what prevents them from from believing the western feeling, you know, admitting the wrongs? So why do you still fall because when guidance comes in, generally, you're going to find that sometimes you comply with the guidance. But other times, you're not compliant. So the guidance

00:03:27 --> 00:03:57

is a but you're doing B with the guidance is B but you're loving a. So what isn't what is necessary at that time? what's necessary at that time, because it's guidance and it's divine that comes from Allah is to simply submit to it. Samana wattana. That's what we supposed to do. That's what we learn from the Quran. So to learn from Adam, and they said that wassalam as opposed to beliefs, what do we tend to do, though? Not all of us, and those of us who do not all of the time,

00:03:59 --> 00:04:08

we will sit for example, in a football in a class, right? And you will yearn I will your Heidi familia hokum, a legal ruling of Islam.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:15

And if our lives is in accordance to it, they will not let me smile. He said Marshall, we could talk.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:27

But if it's not in accordance to how we live, or what we were currently implementing in our lives, then what do we do? our nafs comes up we resist

00:04:28 --> 00:04:48

and then we start saying things like the she's just wants to talk about these negative things. I want to talk more about this my gonna talk more about that. Or I've heard some very funny versions of this, the Merlin as well as kurama, the Niva booth, this is what the problem is, right? Because now they don't like what is being said.

00:04:49 --> 00:04:51

But if you like to go with the flow type of guy

00:04:53 --> 00:04:59

that said the Imam is moving with one of the people likes, then creates problem because now

00:05:00 --> 00:05:11

People find comfort in the person and in what the person is saying they find the version of Islam within him. And this is exactly what Allah Allah wants us to avoid.

00:05:12 --> 00:05:15

He wants the guidance to come to us and then who is

00:05:18 --> 00:05:23

not living according to that I need to change that would be supposed to do.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:48

ILA and Tatiana some little awani. But Allah says no. The example of those before had already been growth. This is not a new thing, allow us to demonstrate to us here that it's built into our nature, that when guidance comes out enough to resist, it's not only it's not only something that that happened to individuals in the past that happened to entire nations in the past.

00:05:49 --> 00:06:34

Look at the story of an episode. And I said that was the moment he starts preaching to these people. But revelation came from Allah. You know, these people say to him, what's wrong with you? You know, you used to be more Jewish, we used to have a lot of hope for you, you becoming a professor or a doctor or lawyer or an accountant. He was smart, young man, are you talking all this stuff? No, this is not our people that will be whatever you see these weapons up until this day wells. So Allah is teaching us essentially how to take knowledge, how to take guidance, and how to behave in relation to it. And then Allah says, Oh, yeah, to whom will addabbo Coppola, oh, inevitably punishment can to

00:06:34 --> 00:06:38

those people have before and it came to them right before the video nice.

00:06:40 --> 00:07:08

woman who received more Selena in the MOBA, sharina, woman v. And we have not sent the messengers except as, give us some glad tidings. And as a bonus, these are the ultimate two descriptions of the messages. bashira when a hero, right, you hear this every Friday in Arabic In English, but the messengers had a row, they were by shield, and they when they leave, because when we say names is a rose, by sheer means they gave glad tidings,

00:07:09 --> 00:07:35

machine and Moon The reason they gave warnings, okay, so let's think about this for a second. What did messengers come to do? They came to go people towards the truth, the truth in belief, and the truth in how they live their lives. So, we're in that is the is the glad tidings and the warnings. To whom is glad tidings given and to whom are the warnings given? What do you see

00:07:38 --> 00:07:39

basically is,

00:07:40 --> 00:07:45

basically is that that's a basic summary of show and analyze the bit further, you could perhaps say,

00:07:47 --> 00:07:57

those who believe, right, and they live according to the teachings of the messages for them, what the messengers are giving is actually glad tidings.

00:07:58 --> 00:08:22

That is the feeling when you sit there and the mom say something that you like, he's like, I'm doing a good job. And then the monthly input is actually when that which they say is not in accordance to the practice of the people or the belief of the people. Now, it's actually it serves as a warning for those people. Now, based on that, how do we treat warnings?

00:08:23 --> 00:08:28

If we were driving along the road, and you know, this is a clearly marked

00:08:29 --> 00:08:34

work with traffic officers saying, don't go down this road, this danger down the

00:08:35 --> 00:08:58

road, you know, you're just being negative, I'm just gonna go, none of us will do that because we believe that person is warning us. So Allah wants us to approach the warnings in that way. It's not warnings to make us feel down to make us feel depressed. It's warning so that we can, you know, steer clear of the danger. That's why we suppose to adhere to all of the guidance.

00:08:59 --> 00:09:44

The role of the messengers is also described as follows. When you Jabulani in a cafe will be melted, they will also make mujaddid the word Jasmine is the is the rutilated janela, which literally means to argue, to argue and debate. Obviously, this is not like a full Chris argument or full Chris debate. This was to reason to use reason and to use the intellect so that the disbelievers would understand that they are actually believing in Mountain View they do be Hill Hawk and the purpose of the entire adventure of debate was in order to to support the truth and to refute the false

00:09:48 --> 00:09:58

what a Yeti why Mountain View whose work but as a loved ones as people take my verses and my

00:10:00 --> 00:10:04

Which I won't with Hulu, as a joke, as a joke.

00:10:07 --> 00:10:10

Now, this is no when you need an idea like this,

00:10:11 --> 00:10:14

then it's like, deep down you thinking we do that.

00:10:15 --> 00:10:25

But if you should really listen to conversations around you, and be consciously aware of the danger of taking a loss.

00:10:26 --> 00:10:35

And always Dean as a joke, you'll be amazed, you'll be terrified at how often people actually do this.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:41

Later, let's, let's just be frank about it, people make fun of aspects of the deal.

00:10:42 --> 00:10:49

They make fun of various aspects of the deal. So I'm going to try to make it simple without getting into all the rhetoric.

00:10:50 --> 00:10:52

Let's make it as simple as possible.

00:10:53 --> 00:10:55

If it is part of the deal,

00:10:56 --> 00:11:13

or be a difference of opinion, or be the difference of approaches to the element in discussion, etc. If it is part of the deal, or you doubt whether it's part of the dean or not, for the very least, remain silent. You're safer that way.

00:11:15 --> 00:11:24

But if you know that some ridiculous thing, that's definitely not part of the deal, then you still won't be harmed by remaining silent.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:49

There's no point they you simply just bring forth the truth. Right. So people will make fun of things like the beard or the niqab or the fold, or the miswak. Because this seems like silly pseudonyms for some people. And we don't want to discuss the details of these individual acts. Because there are details to discuss.

00:11:50 --> 00:12:28

Rather understand that these things form some part of the deen in some way. It doesn't matter where you regard them in your own life, or how you see them as important as not important as extra as you know, cultural things. The fact of the method is it is officially some part of the deal, regardless of how important and because it has that status, we should avoid making fun of these things altogether, or marking or tasting or anything of that nature. Don't make jokes regarding Dean, why am I saying this? Because it's it comes as warnings in the Quran very often. Allah warns about this. And we'll see this in a moment

00:12:31 --> 00:12:36

when you get scholarly debate, right, so somebody tries to use,

00:12:38 --> 00:12:40

Hadith and so forth to put forward a point.

00:12:41 --> 00:13:03

Now, that's my scholarship is there. So if we put forward the point, but the point is bounded, the point is completely invalid. Other scholars will deal with it. Other scholars will come forth and provide counter arguments and evidences and analyze and point out the weaknesses in the argument and then show that this thing is ridiculous. Right? So we don't have to make it our own duty to do such things.

00:13:04 --> 00:13:20

But we as as you know, people we're not, we're not scholars that that label should for the very least just rather stay out of it, because there's no benefit in that discussion for all this. Okay, that puts a question in our mind. Now I'm going to find out what the truth is. Right.

00:13:21 --> 00:13:38

I remember reading an article once about the niqab for example. Now, the niqab is, is something that is differences of opinion about as far as its status is concerned, they are with a man who regarded it as compulsory. They all went around when he got in it as soon.

00:13:39 --> 00:14:23

And this particular article was written by a non scholars written by a journalist. And in this article, this person is trying to argue that it's never been a part of Islam whatsoever. It's something that originated with the priests anomic era from the Persians and so forth using these three and so on. But none of the arguments carried any weight as far as the Sharia is concerned. So all it came down to is this, this person has a predisposition and feels very uncomfortable with the nickel fine. Many people do no problem. So simply just go with the argument with the view that you don't believe it's gonna leave it alone. No, I need to write an article about it now and say that

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

it's not part of Islam whatsoever. 1500 years of scholars before you say differently, you're now in the year 2019. Everybody must believe you know, so this is just some of the elements. I'm not propagating the niqab. I'm not trying to defend the to promote it to say everybody must wait. That's not the point. The point is how people deal with various aspects of Deen. Again, these are the pity things that I'm saying the word PT the really, these are the PT things that people debate about, which is that, you know, they have the points. Sometimes it becomes silly

00:15:00 --> 00:15:11

The country here Attila Baron * Hodge said connected to the Hydra because of the word lebaron. * things like that is a it's never beneficial to entertain these type of discussions.

00:15:13 --> 00:15:38

Roman albula will memento Kira big Ravi for Allah wa nasima panda Matilda, very stern warning and it goes even deeper. Allah says, One men of the level, who can be a greater wrongdoer who can be a greater depressor from the word volume, which means darkness, oppression and wrongdoing, then the one who is reminded of the end of his load

00:15:40 --> 00:15:43

for our buttons away from it

00:15:44 --> 00:15:46

meaning in a disdainful way.

00:15:48 --> 00:15:53

Why messy America domata forgetting what their hands it's in fourth meaning of the deed so

00:15:54 --> 00:16:02

this also happens unfortunately. So there's a situation it's a Family Feud, right? father died

00:16:03 --> 00:16:10

brothers and sisters and are fighting because father's war wasn't according to the Sharia. He never said

00:16:11 --> 00:16:43

the the daughter or the son whatever the case may be, they must get the bulk shape because everybody else is like married and sorted with the homes and things like that. So now there's a feud. They argue so the one son he sending in a cross on daily heard about Islamic inheritance and he learned a few things. So he brings forth rupee I know that there's a verse in the Quran well actually speaks about inheritance and he says there wasn't a second was not a feud. Everybody's angry. Everybody's upset, emotional. So whatever they say.

00:16:44 --> 00:17:30

And nevermind what the Sharia says do what is right, some 4 million people speak like that. Now, who are you actually walking in? Who are you discarding you because Allah is saying there is no one worse than the person who is reminded of the item is robbed and turns away from it. So that's an illegal level. It's an illegal level we can look at the broad approach, the AI are not only verses in the Quran is also things in the in the natural phenomenon, who can be worse than the person who sees a miracle of nature that is inexplicable in terms of any other scientific theory or any type of of science that we know of,

00:17:31 --> 00:17:45

but turns away from it and refuses to believe in on what is that level also. So as you can see, the Quran is nuanced meanings, but it's important for us to acknowledge all of them all the layers of meaning of the Quran tonight

00:17:50 --> 00:17:52

in that genre and Appleby macchina

00:17:54 --> 00:18:04

goes even deeper lessons. We have learned have placed Akina veils over the arts, AF CO, so that they do not understand it

00:18:05 --> 00:18:46

or fee added in walk on and we've placed a seal in the ears. We're in tether oatmeal alhuda and if you were to call them to guidance falaya to do even better, they would never away ever thereafter. Don't get confused here and thinking that the sound so fatalistic like you know, some people are designed to never be guided. This is based on their own decision. Because the initial reaction when guidance came to them was that they turned away from it. They were told there isn't a law they turn away from it, they will unless is this they turned away from refuse to believe. Allah says at that moment, something happens, their hearts become failed, they become unable to hear. So they actually

00:18:46 --> 00:18:58

Doom themselves. A lot protect us from this. And they have so this is of course, the hardness of the arts we've always been hearing since childhood.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:06

First number 58. So is the no hope for people who made mistakes before

00:19:07 --> 00:19:08

always balancing.

00:19:09 --> 00:19:14

Always when Allah speaks about the wrongdoing, and he speaks about them as to do good or foo.

00:19:16 --> 00:20:00

But your load is the forgiving one. The rush man is the possessor of mercy, he chose this quality for himself. Low you ask him to whom be Makassar boo, if he Allah, what do you take people to task based on what they deserve? Like Jelena who will either then punishment would have been haste and for people meaning the moment somebody does something wrong, just think about it in our own lives, all the sins you've committed right? The moment you committed sin Allah digit toss, couldn't follow entity could have done that. But he doesn't, even for the disbelievers been more equal. Rather, they have an appointed time. Lady do mean dooney mo Ella and they will never ever find anyone or any

00:20:00 --> 00:20:03

Escape from that appointment that Allah has given to them.

00:20:04 --> 00:20:46

So why does injustice happen in the world? Why does wrongdoing continue to take place in the world? If there's a God Why does he allow people to become punished and people to be oppressed and sickness and poverty and war to take place? Other than the discussion we had about this world is not the world of justice. It is also an indication of ours urashima so everybody, even the greatest of wrongdoings, they get a chance for as long as they agile allows to turn their lives around and to turn to Allah for forgiveness. Wait till can Pura those are the towns those are the cities those are the generations now when we destroy them lamma Vallejo when they did wrong was analemma Nikki Merida

00:20:46 --> 00:20:50

and we have made for the destruction and appointed time.

00:20:52 --> 00:20:56

Now, we move on to the next section, which is the next story.

00:21:06 --> 00:21:08

What have we covered so far?

00:21:10 --> 00:21:11

Get us into context.

00:21:13 --> 00:21:57

section one was an introduction told us that life is a test in the Quran is your safeguard to the warning to the Christians. And of course, we saw an extrapolated how it will benefit us against that job. Section two was about the sleepers in the cave as how Volkov ran away from fitna and surround themselves with good company and the importance of youth and the importance of righteous friends in this life. And also the importance of removing yourself from the wrongdoing. Section three was the first hook back here it was about speaking and debating without knowledge. So now look, this is now again what we spoke about a moment ago and the free will to choose the truth. Then we spoke about

00:21:57 --> 00:22:33

the man with the two gardens in Section four, how wealth can corrupt the importance of saying Masha Allah and how to treat wealth, as far as one's outlook is concerned, when you are possessing wealth, or when you are looking upon others who possess wealth, section five, the second hood bear which is what we just dealt with the temporality of this life and the condition of tiama being laid by the Qur'an was being misled by shaytaan, a police and the consequences in this life and in the year after. Now, in that, we also learned about guidance, guidance coming to you and how we should respond to the guidance.

00:22:35 --> 00:22:39

That was actually a prelude to the next movie.

00:22:41 --> 00:22:46

Because this movie that we're about to watch now, that's how it plays out. Like a proper movie.

00:22:47 --> 00:22:53

This, this entire scene has one lesson.

00:22:54 --> 00:22:55

One lesson.

00:22:57 --> 00:23:08

So without even going in May, because I've mentioned the lesson right at the beginning in the first half. Who can we be more than one lesson is the objective of the story of Musa and faded?

00:23:09 --> 00:23:10


00:23:11 --> 00:23:16

sovereign somebody is a part of the lesson is what's the ultimate lesson?

00:23:24 --> 00:23:27

We're getting closer about loving everything. Yes.

00:23:33 --> 00:23:35

Just accept some things for what they are.

00:23:37 --> 00:23:38


00:23:40 --> 00:23:53

As all elements within the ultimate limit is one ultimate lesson in this story. And we say this is why this form is part of Soraka because it's going to God as against something that that gel brings.

00:23:55 --> 00:24:02

Not to try to face it rather face as hobbled calf natural Sleepers of the cave. Come on one more try.

00:24:04 --> 00:24:06

Knowledge is knowledge is the one.

00:24:07 --> 00:24:13

One What about knowledge, knowledge is from above.

00:24:14 --> 00:24:19

And while a lot of knowledge is power, there is a way in which knowledge should also be treated.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:35

The first story story of the cave, we learned about Fiddler and how to deal with times of fitna surround yourself in good company turns all this behind without a worship don't give into what the masses are doing, you know those nations.

00:24:36 --> 00:24:52

In the in the business of the two gardens, we learn what to do in the feeding of wealth comes to have a lot of wealth. So let's go through it. Here To sum it all up. Now we're dealing with the story of nappy, moose and headed us have a lot of knowledge, how to deal with it.

00:24:54 --> 00:24:55

Don't let it go to your head.

00:24:57 --> 00:25:00

So the ultimate lesson is how to deal with

00:25:00 --> 00:25:03

Knowledge and the answer on how to deal with knowledge is

00:25:05 --> 00:25:05


00:25:09 --> 00:25:12

humility. Humility

00:25:13 --> 00:25:17

is something so beautiful about knowledge to handle is that

00:25:19 --> 00:25:26

knowledge, the more you can pay off, it comes with a certain level of granularity.

00:25:27 --> 00:25:39

It's like it just goes into that. more knowledge more plenty more knowledge millennia. But it is up to the person who acquires the knowledge to diverse the grant from the knowledge

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

and imbibe the quality of humanity.

00:25:44 --> 00:25:48

For the only one who deserves that grant is unlock

00:25:50 --> 00:26:03

through knowledge in others when it's attained with humanity, it's like a fruit bearing tree. The more fruit you have on the branch, the lower the branch hangs.

00:26:05 --> 00:26:33

The more furniture from the branch, the lower the branch hangs. So knowledge comes with a vertical Kibriya is grandia. But Kibriya is only for a while that type of pride is only follow. This is the danger of knowledge. And we need to be aware of this. And it's not only talking about any specific science or any branch of knowledge. Often we like to think we need to cover knowledge in an Islamic context. And we think about you know, Dini knowledge.

00:26:34 --> 00:26:41

No, no way does Islam specify that knowledge and other knowledge isn't. Knowledge is knowledge as long as it benefits.

00:26:42 --> 00:26:44

So when even knowledge you acquire,

00:26:46 --> 00:27:12

even in this dunya comes with titles that comes with power comes with increased salaries, etc, etc. If we want to stand the test of knowledge and pause, we need to imbibe the quality of humanity. Otherwise, that knowledge will lead to kibble arrogance. And then we fall into the trap of shaitaan, which is part of the previous with Van shaytaan was the greatest album.

00:27:13 --> 00:27:45

Then the evil was he knew. He knew the Malacca he thought the Malacca and he learned from the melodica. But he fell into it into a major problem was that because of his knowledge or deficiency in his knowledge? It is because he's knowledge came with kibble, and not with humility. And he could see that the moment he saw Adam, there is Adam made of clay, and with the fire the human, he doesn't deserve to get the sujood I've been here all this time, I should get the surgery.

00:27:46 --> 00:28:09

And that's when his keyboard took over. So whatever field we may be in, however knowledgeable we may think we all understand that that very knowledge could be the cause of our destruction and our downfall if we don't impact the quality of humanity. Look who Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses to teach and the story to us. As we move salicylate was

00:28:10 --> 00:28:11

one of the greatest ambia

00:28:13 --> 00:28:24

type so that's the ultimately synopsis of the story of Moses and hidden let's just briefly look at an introduction to Nabi Musa Abu Saleh salat wa salam is the most mentioned personality in the Quran.

00:28:25 --> 00:29:05

Interesting, isn't it? I saw a little clip that goes viral every now and they have this Indian man who speaks about how he used to be a Muslim. And then he had some questions and then attracted him to to Christianity. Now for for personal, sort of, is not familiar with with the Quran and so forth. It might be somewhat convincing, because he says things like, you know, that he says name is mentioned in the corner and he's like, 25 times but but my son's name is what you mentioned, like five times, it's, you know, so now for the person who never knew that.

00:29:06 --> 00:29:28

I didn't know that. So he's using one of these very superficial arguments to try and make a case that the Quran is actually telling you to be Christian, right? But there's so many flaws in the in the in the string of arguments that he makes, it's actually a bit ridiculous. So we had a counter. Remember once we came in to counter that, and we shade it, don't ask me where it is now.

00:29:30 --> 00:29:34

But now he moves his name is mentioned the most mentioned the most nocona

00:29:35 --> 00:29:47

and they are similar reasons for this. I believe one of the most obvious reasons to me at least, is that NaVi Moosa is the greatest NaVi of the greatest as Alma

00:29:49 --> 00:29:59

they are all old, the Bernice Roy. Remember from the line of Abraham went to San Diego ish Mary is Mary Larissa and of his heart

00:30:00 --> 00:30:10

After all of them we are killed from the bees half the entire lineage of ambia. And they were all bunnies. The greatest among them was the musasa

00:30:11 --> 00:30:17

off the way we have today, you had from the lineage of Nevis, might that be Mohammed cellulitis?

00:30:18 --> 00:30:24

So if our mind is going to take lessons from anyone, shouldn't it be the greatest enemy

00:30:25 --> 00:30:57

of the provinces? And if our own minds get to take lessons from any nation, shouldn't it be the greatest nation after the Nation of Muhammad Allah? So Allah gives us a handle if you read the Quran, like I remember being a student and the first thing we did the first textbook that we had, so to speak is the Quran. Surah Fatiha when you do Soraka after the first Jews, they needed the second Jews and I'm thinking we actually asked these questions are with the Muslims in this

00:30:58 --> 00:31:24

because it's just funny Israel bunnies. raheel bunnies, Rahim. The almost the entire first to dissolve Boko Haram is about the money sorry. And when I teach explained it beautifully said they were so long in the dunya. And they made so many different mistakes that we can learn from all of them. And this is what Allah demonstrates to us. First teaches us what not to do. It gives us guidance as to what we should do.

00:31:26 --> 00:31:42

This is the only prophet almost 100 Allah who directly spoke to Allah is called can the moolah, the one who spoke to Allah he had the biggest woman had by the prophet systems who was going to outweigh him in the dev karma and the most complete cherry at that point.

00:31:45 --> 00:31:59

The Prophet of Allah so Linus sort of said once now we must preach to the people till the eyes shed tears in their hearts became tender we upon the finished the sermon in a man came to Moses and asked all of us apostle, is there anyone on earth who is more learned than you?

00:32:01 --> 00:32:03

Now, think about this for a second.

00:32:04 --> 00:32:28

It's like somebody coming into the masjid now and asking me Is there anyone here who knows about the Islamic sciences? Or knows more about the seven senses? And you couldn't be the easiest thing in the world for me to say? No, no, I don't think so. Because I'm the teacher. Everybody knows the students. Oh, no. So it's like an obvious thing is the nabee of the time. So he says, No, he spoke to so spoke to so. So I'll admonish him

00:32:30 --> 00:32:40

because he did not ascribe the knowledge to a word. And it was said, Yes, that is in fact, the slave of Allah knows more than you and a bit more so shocked.

00:32:41 --> 00:32:47

They must have said, Oh, my lord way easy. Allah said, at the junction of two C's.

00:32:48 --> 00:32:51

Now let's just get this one thing out of the way quickly. This is not kept up.

00:32:55 --> 00:32:56

I've literally heard

00:32:57 --> 00:32:59

people say, Get down as mentioned in the

00:33:01 --> 00:33:08

first Firstly, Capetown is not the point at which the two oceans meet. Know that. It's capercaillies

00:33:09 --> 00:33:12

to begin with, and secondly,

00:33:13 --> 00:33:19

it's talking about two big bodies of water. Bahar doesn't only mean ocean means a huge body of water.

00:33:20 --> 00:33:25

So it's definitely not I mean, Musa was not here, people.

00:33:27 --> 00:33:35

The poco was here. And the bus got stuck apparently, which was hilarious I thought, but not now. We move sorry, Sarah, Sarah.

00:33:37 --> 00:33:40

There's so much beauty in this story. Because at this point,

00:33:41 --> 00:33:54

if it was not gonna be about love is the responsibility knows more than me. We know ways that we Moosa immediately responds and says, Wait, is he Why

00:33:55 --> 00:33:57

is somebody more knowledgeable than I am?

00:33:59 --> 00:34:24

Then I need to go and learn from that person. So he immediately learns this quality of humility, and even sets his path forward with color Moosa the fighter who remember when Moses 80s he's young servant, he had a boy, you shall be known. That is what the the salon Ellie's have given

00:34:25 --> 00:34:35

that his name was a Leno's beast. Nonetheless, he had this young boy with him, was a to help him. He says that we will never ever give up.

00:34:37 --> 00:34:54

Mr. Bahari until we reach the point where the two C's meet the two bodies of water meet on the hakuba or I will spend years and years and years traveling. So instantly levy Moosa alesana teaches us a few things about knowledge. The first thing he taught us is

00:34:57 --> 00:34:59

never just assume you know the most because all

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

To him, the second thing he taught us is that he should have ascribed the knowledge to Allah will love it if what am I talking like that it's because the Quran and the Sunnah is filled with it, you should always Allah knows based, right? Even though this is my opinion, this is what I see to be what is accurate, the end of the day, I'm still human, I could still make a mistake Allah knows best.

00:35:23 --> 00:35:33

Third thing he teaches us is that the moment is an opportunity to learn, seek it out, seek it out. The fourth thing he teaches us

00:35:34 --> 00:35:36

is that knowledge is something that is pursued.

00:35:38 --> 00:35:40

knowledge through knowledge you pursue knowledge

00:35:42 --> 00:35:44

is something about knowledge.

00:35:46 --> 00:35:47

And the pursuit of

00:35:48 --> 00:36:28

federalize key in the word pursuit, you actually have to go after knowledge, sacrifices have to be paid, you have to move, you have to get out of your bed, out of your home in to go go to a particular place, sit at the feet of a teacher, you have to go the and this has always been consistent. I'm not by any, by any means. msms saying that, you know, you can't get any information or any knowledge, you know, buy something and how you can we all know the way the world works today. All I'm saying is that there's some, there's some divine element in the student going to the teacher, and seeking the knowledge out from the teacher.

00:36:29 --> 00:36:33

I know one of my teachers was very against the idea of

00:36:34 --> 00:36:49

scholars or students of Dean being employed to come to the homes of people to teach the kids but that's like a popular thing today, for various reasons. But really understand that when you put all the effort in the new value, if

00:36:50 --> 00:36:53

you could get all the information that you're getting here tonight,

00:36:54 --> 00:36:57

on some YouTube video some way you could.

00:36:59 --> 00:37:11

But you're not going to value it as much when you sit at home in your bed watching it on your new cell phone screen. And it's not going to have as much of an effect. It just doesn't. And I mean, I'm willing to take

00:37:13 --> 00:37:35

a disagreement on that one but I personally find that there's still an element of, of divine divine intervention when you go and seek knowledge. So Robin Moosa also teaches us that not only should you make some effort, you should make a lot of effort and really go to the ends of the earth to try and seek for knowledge. By the way, the Hadith, the so called Hadith

00:37:37 --> 00:37:59

allemaal officine seek knowledge if any will be in China is not the Hadith prophets, so never say that is no integration of that. It's a very popular thing, but it's not even the other one that is multiple in Milan, Milan de la la de signally from the cradle to the grave is all sayings and that might mean something nice but not authentically attributed to me Mohammed Sol Isilon.

00:38:02 --> 00:38:16

They will stop on this one and they take any questions if they are, while at lunch, Lu functional, you're in La Villa, Nina mahnomen, como La Nina. Raja, the virtues of knowledge of many, but for tonight, just look at the sun of surah. Allah

00:38:18 --> 00:38:29

and we need to say to them spread out, they spread out a lower days, those who believe among you, and those who have been given knowledge to Roger in rank, so you should always pursue knowledge.

00:38:32 --> 00:38:33


00:38:34 --> 00:38:39

as I said earlier, doesn't just mean going to be an Alamo halfin, etc.

00:38:40 --> 00:38:45

It's not, no, it doesn't say, seek, you know, Sharia knowledge.

00:38:46 --> 00:39:06

Problem with other sciences is that we've, we've, in our minds, created the barrier between Islamic sciences and the sciences. So the person studying to be for example, an engineer, doesn't see that the correlation between these engineering studies and him being a Muslim, that's the problem.

00:39:08 --> 00:39:43

So so when we when we did that dichotomy in our minds in our hearts, that's when we add to now give extra attention to Islamic knowledge. That didn't happen in our past. Go and look at the at the pioneers of the sciences, be it in maths be it in, scientists even seen an evolution in one of these guys. They were preferred of the poor, and they were all a man on the right, and they will be leading doctors and scientists, because they didn't see a dichotomy in the two. Today when a young man young woman enters into university to study to be a

00:39:45 --> 00:40:00

rocket scientist, for example, they're only seeing it as I'm being a rocket scientist. Not I'm an acid to Islam. I'm doing this because all I see them as Ms. seek knowledge or misgiving exploring the heavens and the earth and so on and so forth. They don't have that connection. And that's what we need.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:01

To bring back in human life

00:40:03 --> 00:40:10

is the need for everyone to get the basis of Islamic knowledge? Absolutely. Undoubtedly.

00:40:11 --> 00:40:23

We have, unfortunately not. We don't have a priority strength. The moment you send a child to a given study, what are they going to study? Or to the parents in the childhood study?

00:40:25 --> 00:40:32

Not saying that's bad, it's good. It's very good. problem is we don't see beyond that. So what have you done?

00:40:34 --> 00:40:38

You've created an essence for the mind, since it's America. Now Pacha in front,

00:40:39 --> 00:40:59

back for that person's own sake, then become a memorizer of a book that they don't understand. Think of the repercussions of that could have. This is my own personal feeling, I feel that every person who studies health, part of that study must be the understanding of what they memorize, the one is incomplete without the other

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

because of what we can clearly identify, right? That's just a normal person, then who memorize the Book, as opposed to a normal person whose life was transformed by the understanding of a book, right? That's the one thing and then secondly, every Muslim, every single Muslim man and woman should never finish the life of studies until they got a foundational knowledge of how to live life as a believer and what they believe.

00:41:33 --> 00:42:10

Like aqidah, who is Allah? Who are the Gambia, what is Islam? What are the do's and what are the don'ts? It must be some at some point between the time they start schooling and and before they enter into university that we must be grounded in those things. This normally means one or two years of full time studies and 95 that can be done in a different way that normally takes like three years, full time, that's also praiseworthy. So what I'm actually saying is, all of that must be included in every Muslims education.

00:42:11 --> 00:42:41

Don't forget where we are now. Don't think, Oh, no, but we did this. And we did that. No, we're not talking about now. We're talking about our vision for the next 10 years, the next 15 years, the next 20 years. It's not about creating an AMA. It's about creating adequate, competent and efficient Muslims. So that person now goes and studies with if they do, they have the head screwed on right? And they know where they stand. Allah subhanaw taala guide is always that one and in Hungary, the European economy
