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

Incredible that we already completed in days of fasting like a third of Ramadan has gone Kahnawake on other women back and I was thinking Subhanallah even if Allah and we pray that he does grant us live call next Ramadan me. I mean, we will never get those 10 days back. Those 10 days are gone forever

00:05:24 --> 00:05:33

May Allah grant us the ability to to make the most of what remains. I mean, I mean, Robin and I see online already we've got

00:05:34 --> 00:05:36

00:05:38 --> 00:05:39

00:05:43 --> 00:05:44

and hungry, hungry.

00:05:47 --> 00:05:52

type so we're going to begin Of course we doing Surah calf today, right?

00:05:54 --> 00:06:08

I think anybody who would have listened to the beautiful recitation would kind of get that and we also see so the last time we do we begin shops, we wanted to speak about that. Yes. It just wasn't as accurate as Q Okay, so

00:06:09 --> 00:06:09

it's Mila

00:06:13 --> 00:06:15

sketching a new

00:06:16 --> 00:06:17

a new sketch was

00:06:24 --> 00:06:27

just asked when you only started with you do when it goes

00:06:28 --> 00:06:36

through this. You can't you can't leave us on a cliffhanger last time. And now when we get to the other side of the cliff and then you still

00:06:39 --> 00:06:39

give us some

00:06:41 --> 00:06:45

so we're discussing that idea of you know the story of Musa alayhis salaam with

00:06:47 --> 00:06:50

the codename actually not with open in Saudi with

00:06:52 --> 00:06:53

Heather Allison,

00:06:54 --> 00:06:57

either how they can say it either way.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:04

But we start through a bit before that when Musa Lester was journeying with you shall be known.

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

And so we say there were a number of role plays in this whole series of events. This there was a relationship between Musa SRM and Allah and vice versa. Musa let's run with you shall be new and vice versa moosari Salam with Hardrada Salam and vice versa and then hydrolase Salah with Allah and vice versa.

00:07:27 --> 00:07:30

And each of these relationships are loaded with lessons for us

00:07:34 --> 00:07:50

like if I think maybe, you know, instead of me commenting on all of these things, I think we can each we can share them between ourselves but if you just contemplate and think about you know from the beginning start off with with the relationship between Musa they sent him an Allah

00:07:52 --> 00:07:58

Musa Allison was obviously a prophet and messenger of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And

00:08:00 --> 00:08:03

based on that fact, and he's access to knowledge

00:08:04 --> 00:08:18

from Allah subhanaw taala that other people don't usually have access to, because revelation right revealed knowledge from Allah subhanaw taala is oftentimes about things that no matter how hard you apply your mind, you cannot perceive those things.

00:08:20 --> 00:08:32

Like for example, you know, you can be as intelligent as as possible. But you'd have no way of accessing knowledge of Jana and Jana.

00:08:35 --> 00:08:44

Or you would have you wouldn't have any ability to gain knowledge of the angels, knowledge of the hype for that matter. And so

00:08:45 --> 00:08:54

Musa listen, I'm had access to that type of knowledge that other normal people don't have access to an account of him being a prophet and messenger of Allah. You know, Alan salatu, salam,

00:08:55 --> 00:08:56


00:08:57 --> 00:09:13

Musa al Hassan mentioned to his people in passing, that he was the most knowledgeable person and then Allah subhanho wa taala, directed him, according to a hadith to another person who would be more knowledgeable than him, or would have knowledge that he did not have.

00:09:14 --> 00:09:18

Musa alayhis salam did not become arrogant at the thought of that.

00:09:19 --> 00:09:26

He didn't, you know, remonstrate with Allah subhanaw taala, or anything like that, in fact, there is a lesson,

00:09:27 --> 00:10:00

a very salient lesson for us in this response of Musa alayhis salam, that instead of becoming arrogant, and thinking to himself that there's nobody more knowledgeable than him, how can they be an account of the status that he had, etc, or all that he was humble enough to become desirous of learning from that person becoming that person's student? Right? And yeah, I'm still speaking about the relationship between Musa alayhis salam and Allah because Allah was the one who informed him of the Musa SNM didn t demonstrate that rather, he me

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

Did we undertook a journey you know under the inspiration from Allah subhanaw taala to go and find that person not questioning not demonstrating that anything would have we missed was explained that way what what? remonstrate

00:10:20 --> 00:10:23

yeah to like fight against something

00:10:24 --> 00:10:25

to protest against

00:10:27 --> 00:10:27

for your

00:10:30 --> 00:10:31


00:10:32 --> 00:10:36

but I actually the Google pages open actually most likely

00:10:37 --> 00:10:39

just using In fact today in

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


00:10:43 --> 00:11:14

did enter our week so we were doing the story of well throughout Ramadan reading the story of Nabil Ibrahim Ali said salaam so we add the verse we is confronting Nam rude, right? And then I was thinking about the anglicized form of his name is Nimrod and NameNode is also like a form of insulted and if you recall people used to say like oh, this Nimrod right and I was interested to know like is that perhaps because of NAMA Roodman because the Israeli ad indicate that he died a very humiliating type of death.

00:11:15 --> 00:11:25

Anyway, so somebody sent me some info because they saw the video online so they sent me some info that in fact, it originates somehow from Bugs Bunny.

00:11:27 --> 00:11:35

So I don't know. No, no, I had some weird Bugs Bunny number of features. Now that you mentioning it in relation to Bugs Bunny, it's like ringing a bell I call it

00:11:39 --> 00:12:01

Yeah, so do you continue. So it has been we move on in this this relationship with Allah subhanaw taala with Musa Allison and Allah subhanaw taala continues to guide him you know throughout the entire series of events almost 100 continues to guide him and Allah subhanaw taala already availed to him special knowledge in that he's a prophet and the messenger.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:03


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

was acknowledged.

00:12:10 --> 00:12:12

I log onto WhatsApp so I could get onto here.

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


00:12:18 --> 00:12:29

and Allah subhanaw taala continues to teach you for 10 years the next relationship between Musa Salem and USIA and vice versa

00:12:30 --> 00:12:35

and they you know, Musa nslm has a position of authority over you shall be known

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


00:12:42 --> 00:12:44

he gives him some responsibility.

00:12:46 --> 00:12:48

You shall eventually

00:12:49 --> 00:13:02

so I don't want to say he failed that that responsibility but he doesn't carry it out as he should have carried it out. Obviously we know that was according to the decree of Allah subhanaw taala it was as it was supposed to be but Musa Alex him again he didn't

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

you know, despite the fact that he had authority over this person, he did not rebuke him chide him in a in an ugly manner.

00:13:14 --> 00:13:20

Rather, he just told him Look, that's exactly what we were looking for. Let's go back and you know, retrace our steps.

00:13:22 --> 00:13:38

In a similar in a similar fashion USIA he was humble enough, you know, to to rectify it equally. Today. This guy is going to scold me out of here so you know what, I'm just gonna not tell him what happened.

00:13:41 --> 00:13:43

He's gonna figure it out. And there's no fish

00:13:46 --> 00:13:55

like my back now? Yeah, but even the way even the way you shot even the way you shall SLM at least that was Musa alayhis. Salam was, was that he said

00:13:57 --> 00:14:00

the insert a new shape on ESCWA

00:14:01 --> 00:14:09

that is shaped on caused me to forget to remind you of that incident that took place and

00:14:10 --> 00:14:17

and in that, you know, the way he deals with Musa alayhis salam is a very wise man as well.

00:14:18 --> 00:14:30

In that he he you know, he speaks to Musa lesson but we always prepare him for the fact that he's going to tell him that look Africa, but tell him you know, Satan that caused me to forget.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:34

So this wisdom in the way he also

00:14:35 --> 00:14:41

interacts with the superior unless you superior and then there's a relationship between Musa alayhis salam and

00:14:42 --> 00:14:59

and Hebrew Salaam and I like him a lot more can be said about all of these things but this relationship between Musa alayhis salam and Phaedra Addison Musa lesson and being the Messenger of Allah Subhan the messenger of the time figure Allah said I'm not the messenger, but a person who has special knowledge from ALLAH when Musa

00:15:00 --> 00:15:02

Excellent meets him he meets him with humility

00:15:04 --> 00:15:14

for whatever the abdomen Idina Tina haramaty, Amina Indianola alumna human Laguna Alma, Paula level Musa Hal at Debbie Okada and to eliminate him are only interested.

00:15:15 --> 00:15:17

You know, Musa listen, I'm also very humbly

00:15:19 --> 00:15:30

after recognizing that this is the person that allied endowed with, you know, blessing of special knowledge, he requests permission from him, he doesn't come to tell him look at, you count the Prophet of Allah of time.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

So you kind of have to listen to me.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:39

I'm gonna go with you now. Instead, he tells, Look,

00:15:40 --> 00:15:47

can Will you allow me to travel with you, and to teach me of that knowledge that you were gifted with by Allah subhanaw taala.

00:15:51 --> 00:16:03

And then, you know, federalism, assuming the position of teacher in this in this scenario, he immediately, you know, takes the app and in the relationship, and he tells him, you won't be able to have patience with me.

00:16:04 --> 00:16:09

And how can you have patients, when you will face things that you know, you have no knowledge of,

00:16:10 --> 00:16:12

you're not informed of.

00:16:13 --> 00:16:16

Musa alayhis salam then, you know, very humbly says to him.

00:16:18 --> 00:16:22

If you allow me to go with you, then surely you will find me of those who are patient.

00:16:25 --> 00:16:42

He rallies around needles, look, Pew must go with me. They just don't ask me about anything. So it's like as a teacher is laying down some ground rules. And Musa listen. And when he speaks, he falls foul of them in that he actually has asked me that is that I'm about certain things. But

00:16:44 --> 00:16:52

But when Musa when federalism goes into account, and it checks him immediately, he apologizes, which is, Oh, give me another chance.

00:16:54 --> 00:16:57

So yeah, so

00:16:58 --> 00:17:10

that, again, is a display of humility. And, in fact, this this recurring theme of humility, you know, in all of these relationships, and that's very important, because when a person is styled with knowledge,

00:17:12 --> 00:17:24

the way to manage that trial, you can consider knowledge of favor, but it's also a trial in it, that oftentimes, with lots of knowledge, people can become arrogant.

00:17:25 --> 00:17:33

They can look down on the knowledge that other people have. But, you know, the way to navigate that route of knowledge is to maintain humility.

00:17:34 --> 00:17:43

To always know how to develop this wonderful peculiar element, I need to know that you know, above every knowledgeable person, there is one more knowledgeable.

00:17:46 --> 00:18:21

And then this relationship between Rahim Allah, he had a nice way of explaining this phenomenon, he says that the attainment of item comes with a corollary of Kibriya. But it is the job of the person acquiring item to divorce the two because I'll Kibriya Allah, that you keep, but the key value attribute to Allah. So any greatness, or reputation or achievement that comes your way, it is essentially that it belongs to Allah. It's not from you.

00:18:22 --> 00:18:24

If you see it in that way.

00:18:25 --> 00:18:32

It's quite an important lesson for any person pursuing him. And I remember for a long time when I had se status

00:18:34 --> 00:18:36

on WhatsApp, you know,

00:18:37 --> 00:18:46

every people will be able to appreciate this, but the giant of knowledge that he was in so many fields, is to add as the status warmer ot to mentally ill kanila

00:18:48 --> 00:18:51

that Allah subhanaw taala says, I have not given you of knowledge except a little bit.

00:18:52 --> 00:18:56

I've only given you a little bit of knowledge, I think that

00:18:57 --> 00:18:59

you might do explaining this whole thing now not like

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

you shall not be most others around. So you shall see is Wilma and Sandy who illustrate on Quora. It was nothing besides shaytaan that made me forget to remind you, but with Musa feeder, then Moses call Allah to ask if need be minor see to don't take me to task for what I had forgotten. So you shall like being the subordinate. He attributes his mistake, you know, shaitan was the one that caused me to forget now but Musa with the status and what ALLAH blessed him, he said, no, I forgot. So you know, that's interesting mission.

00:19:39 --> 00:19:54

Mission of giltia. That beautiful. And this relationship of you know, we touched also in the midst of economic relationship between federalism and Musa SLM, that moves three rallies, and I'm assumed that position of teacher authority,

00:19:56 --> 00:20:00

but at the same time he display cefaclor With Musala, Saddam Hussein Islam

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

promised not to question him. But he questioned you on three occasions.

00:20:06 --> 00:20:09

And each time, despite having questioned him,

00:20:10 --> 00:20:13

federalism allowed him to carry on with him. He overlooked at

00:20:15 --> 00:20:26

first time we overlooked it the second time we overlooked it. The third time, he said, Look, now, it's a parting of ways, but I'm still going to give you the explanation of what you were not able to,

00:20:27 --> 00:20:31

you know, pay with patients. So he still gave him that explanation of this.

00:20:32 --> 00:20:37

And in this relationship, so you know, this lesson for for teachers in that also

00:20:39 --> 00:20:46

be with your errant students, you know, perhaps at the end of the day, they will, they will learn and gain something

00:20:47 --> 00:20:52

not that Musa lesson was Aaron, Allah subhanaw taala wanted him to, you know, forget as he did.

00:20:56 --> 00:21:20

My friend, listen for the students also, like the first the first two into all three incidents, he didn't get the reason. And he still just submitted and he said, Okay, you know, I'm sorry, I made a mistake, before you even get to that point. So the students is Bianca, Allah and to eliminate me Madelinetosh the, you get the adverb, the student goes to the teacher goes and seeks with the teacher,

00:21:21 --> 00:21:41

when he finds the teacher requests permission to learn from the teacher, because it's not like Rekha, teach me come to my house, I'm gonna pay you so much for our attack, can I please follow you? Can I make more Lezama of you? Can I Can I be your stitchy. Right, just so that you can teach me something of what you have.

00:21:42 --> 00:22:03

So in that, in that approach, in and of itself, these, there's a lot of other wisdom, and added, the student should should know, you know, like the level of the teacher and to respect that and give it its hack, because that's going to be the keys of item. It's another thing that our teacher was very, was very

00:22:05 --> 00:22:07

emphatic on. The fact that,

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

that even comes with admin, you know, have the have the correct discipline as a student, in every respect, not just in terms of your characteristics, but in terms of your talab. Right, your, your thirst for knowledge, that's part of the tickets have assumed you must be thirsty for knowledge. Like you, you must never become quenched from the thirst, and your Motorola and your mood Acura and your Mohalla all of those things is part of the idea of of a student and if you give that adage of it, and then Allah gives you

00:22:45 --> 00:22:58

Yeah, that's very, very important. But nowadays, teachers are like just people, three teachers in society like, you know, people in the service sector service delivery, can I pay you your money you must give me

00:22:59 --> 00:23:05

give me the knowledge. But I mean, in our Islamic paradigm in our tradition, that's that was never the case.

00:23:06 --> 00:23:07

You know,

00:23:09 --> 00:23:14

a poem with it was I'm not sure who the author of the poem is.

00:23:17 --> 00:23:17


00:23:18 --> 00:23:24

it goes something like this used to be the island woodwinds FM in Mohali me, you know be patiently

00:23:25 --> 00:23:32

in Rusu Belle Isle Marina ferrati That one Exactly. You know pay patiently the you know, the the pettiness

00:23:34 --> 00:23:35

of from a teacher

00:23:36 --> 00:23:43

for, you know, attaining knowledge, he's depositing knowledge into you comes with his,

00:23:45 --> 00:23:56

you know, with His admonitions and all of those things, while my lemmya Murata allomi sat and whoever doesn't taste the pettiness of learning for a moment

00:23:58 --> 00:24:08

that gyro hula jelly pool hierarchy that person will have to swallow the the humility humiliation of ignorance for the entirety of his life.

00:24:10 --> 00:24:24

Woman fare totally work the Shabaab he kept the rally urban new if it doesn't, you know, who misses the opportunity to learn in his younger days in you know, pray for the abuse and neglect praised and as a southern estate.

00:24:27 --> 00:24:29

And so, yeah.

00:24:31 --> 00:24:39

I just lost Lego Hyattsville Fatah wala he behind me what to call either LME, hakuna allottee Batali that he

00:24:42 --> 00:24:43

Okay, so what do you mean?

00:24:44 --> 00:25:00

The life of a youngster should be with the, the xes with the standard points of knowledge and consciousness of Allah. It's should be things that we should strive for when we are young, either Allah Mucuna and if we

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

He's not so now antibody that is no consideration for that person is like, yeah the time then when you're supposed to learn that is actually when you're younger. And then it's to be developed basically throughout your life.

00:25:15 --> 00:25:26

Forgive us. Yeah, but the point was that there was like, it was like you missed the boat. When it's when you're young that's like YOLO and then when you get older, okay, now, the screen on my OB never

00:25:28 --> 00:25:43

say yeah, okay, I want to I want to ask she excited after you make your point. I want to ask him about these days, like from umami. Izanami told me not too long ago, that they see. Now I'm watching. Now I mustn't do that now. And I have to tell them

00:25:44 --> 00:26:17

that they seen the movie at like, three, right? And how difficult it was for her and how uncle Suleiman was with him and I just wanted him to give us like a glimpse of what it means to be like a student at that time in your life and how it was to be 100 students specifically, of she, she used to bully and the other teachers are just a glimpse, so people can understand like, you know, what their journey is like, but the author's Acadias point in shower. Yeah, so I was saying, you know, that that idea of how we treat teachers nowadays almost as,

00:26:19 --> 00:26:20


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

as like service delivery people that's like a really, really problematic from Islamic perspective.

00:26:28 --> 00:26:32

Rather, in our tradition, in the Islamic tradition,

00:26:33 --> 00:26:38

the teacher is has like a very high row, really noble

00:26:40 --> 00:26:45

subject, one poem, one poet even wrote about the teacher caddell Malinois Hakuna Rasulullah.

00:26:49 --> 00:27:06

Add a second, we're gonna send home a little while me Wi Fi, G laka, del Mwalimu, E, hakuna Rasulillah important poem, the poet says, you know, stand for your teacher, and give him copious amounts of veneration. Because the teacher is almost like a prophet of teachers almost like a messenger.

00:27:09 --> 00:27:18

Not like, we're not saying that the teacher is a messenger of Allah or anything like that. But in a, in some figurative sense, that teacher is like a messenger

00:27:19 --> 00:27:49

to, to his students, in that he's a conduit from them knowing what they didn't know a conduit for them knowing what they didn't know. So you know, that position is a very, very high position in Islam. And it was borne out in this relationship between Musa alayhis salam and Sidiropoulos Musa listen despite being the Messenger of Allah, he listened to either RSM he saw his restaurant doing heinous things. Federalism told me he's gonna tell you

00:27:50 --> 00:27:54

you won't be patient with me. It musasa makes an excuse

00:27:57 --> 00:28:01

he didn't get in remonstrating. Hey, but you doing this and that method? How can you expect him to be patiently?

00:28:03 --> 00:28:09

He listens. And in that listening sometimes, you know, sacking like that, you know, loading us up, it's difficult.

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

But the Musa

00:28:14 --> 00:28:28

Yeah, whatever. The second whatever. Musa Allison eventually got the explanation of those events that was satisfying to him. And in those explanations is something beautiful because it speaks of, you know, Phaedra rsmc relationship with Allah as well.

00:28:33 --> 00:28:35

So, like, for example,

00:28:36 --> 00:28:38

Pedro RSM then goes on to tell musasa

00:28:41 --> 00:29:02

why, why last night this man was choking on his ATM and so he's trying to cough cough inside there. So what was I gonna say? So Musa listen, I think rally sentiment gives Musa Lindstrom the explanation of those events, but they look how he does it. In the first event, right? They each tried with some poor people.

00:29:05 --> 00:29:09

You call it the right both right they are they each that I was some poor people.

00:29:10 --> 00:29:11

They broke the boat.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:25

They left them with nothing more than what they had before. In fact, something slightly deficient, they did do something good to them. They save them from the boat being stolen.

00:29:26 --> 00:29:29

But it didn't leave them with anything more than they had before.

00:29:30 --> 00:29:32

Right. In the second instance.

00:29:35 --> 00:29:38

Federalism killed the boy

00:29:39 --> 00:29:42

but he also made it to add that they be replaced with data.

00:29:45 --> 00:29:56

So those parents lost their childhood days and even if the child is a naughty child is lost in the in the difficulty of losing a child, but he also knew that they will be replaced with better

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

again in the last instance

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

The people gave him nothing.

00:30:03 --> 00:30:06

But he left him with something better he built the wall up for them again.

00:30:08 --> 00:30:14

And if you look at how he attributes all of those things, the attribution of those things what is he saying? In the first instance he says

00:30:16 --> 00:30:26

I'm Mr fina to affectionately my psyche and Amarula feel badly. For our two. I wanted an EBA to Mexico, defective

00:30:28 --> 00:30:31

Ocala Malika Yahoo Dooku lesufi In the hospital,

00:30:32 --> 00:30:39

right, because there was a quarantine that was taking the boats usurping boats behind it. So he attributes it himself. I wanted to

00:30:42 --> 00:30:54

what a man who Lambo that umbrella hula MUFA can everyone Mulaney for her she Nana, you OMA to Rihanna COFRA right there now, we is,

00:30:55 --> 00:30:56

as for the boy,

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

the head believing parents,

00:31:02 --> 00:31:03

and we feared

00:31:04 --> 00:31:09

that he would lead them into error and strange and disbelief.

00:31:10 --> 00:31:12

And then he says we intended

00:31:15 --> 00:31:20

that they could be replaced or that they be replaced with better painting, right.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:33

And then in the last case, what is he saying? Well, MLG del RW for cannula, hula mania, T mania, feeling identity work, and at that I will cancel the homework and I will masala as for the wall, it belong to two orphan boys in the city.

00:31:35 --> 00:31:41

There was a treasure that belonged to the two of them beneath that wall. And the father was a pious man.

00:31:42 --> 00:31:44

Then he says, arrived and Rob Booker

00:31:46 --> 00:31:57

a ye Bulova should the Homer wife, Stefanie Jenkins, Omar Mehta, Mirotic. And you will load wanted, that they reach the maturity, and then they take the trash out

00:31:58 --> 00:32:08

as a mercy from your load. But if you look at that, the first one is we lift them with nothing more than what they had before. In fact, slightly less, he attributed it to himself for our to

00:32:10 --> 00:32:18

where there was an element of bad and an element of good they lost the bad child and they were going to be replaced with the good shall he says we wanted

00:32:20 --> 00:32:24

almost leaving with that leeway that you can attribute the bad to human good to Allah.

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

And in the last instance, we only lift him with more than what they had before. And he took nothing from the attributes of Otto.

00:32:35 --> 00:32:35


00:32:36 --> 00:32:53

and so it's like, you know, we see this whole look of prerelease around with Allah subhanaw taala. And obviously we see Allah Subhana Allah is Allah subhanaw taala as you know, the relationship with Phaedra Ali Salam in that, despite the fact that he wasn't too profitable.

00:32:54 --> 00:33:11

Allah bestowed upon him, you know, this special type of knowledge that even the Prophet of the time didn't have access to know. So, you know, it's like, those are just some points, a lot more chemistry, but you know, there's a wealth of lessons that we can, you know, relationship lessons.

00:33:13 --> 00:33:16

I think, I think we take a step back quickly,

00:33:17 --> 00:33:18

because that was like

00:33:21 --> 00:33:21

South Korea,

00:33:23 --> 00:33:40

we, we took a step into the cliffhanger that we left people on the last time we worked the relationships that are sort of covered by just looking at Surah calf is a whole, the way I I choose to start reflecting on Surah calf is that you have this surah of the Quran.

00:33:42 --> 00:33:59

That isn't a short surah. But it's important enough that it is Sunnah, and emphasized sunnah, and I'm saying that I, by way of it strongly encourage that everybody does this to recite every Friday, it's once a week.

00:34:00 --> 00:34:15

And we need something that's so regular in the shedule of a Muslim. And obviously, it's got a lot of significance. So I approach the surah from that perspective, when trying to understand that what is it that Allah is is reminding me of

00:34:16 --> 00:34:26

that is so important that I need to hear it every week, you with me? And then start looking for the lessons. So essentially, when you look at the Surah, you've got

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

four main stories and then a few interludes in between that that all contain important messages.

00:34:35 --> 00:34:43

It begins with the story of the owner of the two gardens. Sorry, the sleepers in the cave.

00:34:44 --> 00:34:51

So that's the one story it's the sleepers in the case of Seibel calf as they're called in Arabic then you have the owner of the two gardens.

00:34:52 --> 00:35:00

Then you have Musa and feeder, which is what we covered already and then you have a dual coordinate. And then as I said again

00:35:00 --> 00:35:19

In these, these, these three, I think three addresses in between. So the point of of each story is like really to get to the crux of the of the lesson in that story, there are many lessons. But then there's also this overwhelming lesson contained in that story, like a theme of the story.

00:35:20 --> 00:35:57

And then based on the themes of those stories, you have the theme of the surah. Right? So what are the I mean, we were going to begin if you're going to begin by the, the atomistic lessons, the individual lessons, then it's easy to get lost, as far as the bigger picture is concerned. So the approach is that I look at the main themes of each of each story. So my name is Karissa went through the story of NaVi Musa and Phaedra Alexa to SNAM, showing the relationships and primarily we saw that it was relationships built around it around knowledge, because the real model of the study V

00:35:58 --> 00:36:08

is how does one deal with knowledge? How does one deal with knowledge? So it's the trial of knowledge, the test of knowledge, right?

00:36:09 --> 00:36:22

And we learn how to deal with it and the answer is through humility. USB so that's like the the crux of the story. Now you do the same with other stories. What's this? What's the point of this story of us Hybl gaff

00:36:25 --> 00:36:42

Walker that Arthur gnarly him the Alamo and Nevada law. He says Allah, at the end close to the end of the story. We allowed them to be discovered, so that they might know they the companions and the the people, the believing people that they were

00:36:43 --> 00:36:50

sent back to which was like so many years later, that they can all know that Allah promise of resurrection is true now

00:36:51 --> 00:36:54

of returning to Allah that Allah Allah that He created us.

00:36:55 --> 00:37:35

That's definitely that's undoubtedly one of the main themes. It's the idea of a very creation, right? The fact that I mean, the whole description of our Allah preserves him, yes, in the cave, yes, also like amazing men, because in that bodily form, Allah allowed the sun to move in a certain way as their bodies, they turned in the sleep in a certain way. And the dog was sitting nearby the door of the cave, in a certain way that no but you know, love with all the elements in the to allow for the preservation, and then to allow for them to be resurrected once right? So one of the absolute main themes of that PISA is the idea of

00:37:37 --> 00:38:19

an afterlife, and how easy it is for Allah to you know, have this. But if you really go into the story, like the sleepers of the cave itself, and you ask, what, what were they being tested with? What was the trial man, the five, they faking? You check. So they were, they were in a situation whereby everybody was uncovered and shake, and Allah plays through the within the fitrah, and guided them that this is wrong. So they're gonna, they're gonna not follow what everybody else is following and they're gonna withdraw. And then they turn to Allah, they begged Allah to Allah for guidance, and he guided them, and then the whole incident of the cave took place. Then when they woke up,

00:38:19 --> 00:38:43

everybody's believing, you understand? So you see this contrast of the absence of faith to faith. So the point is the test of faith, the trial of faith, like when you when you Iman is trialed, because they were essentially trial by the king, they have the time to abandon the faith and, and, you know, be mushy goon again and they refused. So how do you deal with the trial of faith?

00:38:44 --> 00:39:20

And these mini lessons in how to deal with retreat, turn to Allah, you know, take solace with one another. And that's another message that comes out in Surah calf to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Sahaba was paid enough. Second, Molina, the owner of Bombay liquidity will actually usually do Nevada, right? Spend your time with those who call upon Allah morning and evening, wanting his pleasure. And don't turn to those who want dunya and so on. So this is the lesson of how to deal with when your faith when you Eman is being trialed? That's the major theme. The I think one, if you allow it to show up, I think one of the important things the

00:39:21 --> 00:39:32

is that what Allah provided for them was company good company. You alluded to it now, you know, finding solace in one another. But I think that can't be, you know,

00:39:33 --> 00:39:36

can't be overstated. Like no, absolutely.

00:39:37 --> 00:39:52

That as believers we are not islands. Yes, there are times when we may be tested with solitude and, and we have to show our strength in those moments. But in general, we should be seeking company that aid us instinct in us.

00:39:53 --> 00:39:59

And what's interesting, what's interesting about what you're saying, Sadie is I don't know if you listened to Dr. Jordan Peterson's podcast.

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

Sometimes he often mentions that this is scientific evidence to show that we as humans, we have been designed with an internal design to imitate.

00:40:14 --> 00:40:18

So we will naturally imitate, you understand? So we need

00:40:19 --> 00:40:26

examples, in the forms of Amina, in our belief is the Prophets and Messengers. What do we imitate? we imitate the Sunnah.

00:40:27 --> 00:40:40

And then this is quite interesting that we spoke about Surah Fatiha. And yeah, poor Yes, let's say Serato. Mr. Team, but Allah doesn't say way. Allah mentioned people. Yeah. Because Because you design.

00:40:41 --> 00:41:04

We don't we don't learn Seleka with theory, you know, like, Do this, do that, and it's not sufficient. It's show me the way. Don't point me though, like, show me the way. Anyway, so So that's that, say, Do you want to run over the theme of the of the next one? You did? You did. Musa and he did, which is the trial of knowledge, which leaves one lift as the owner,

00:41:05 --> 00:41:11

we can live from Allah Salim. But I think before we move on from this one, you know that that another just

00:41:13 --> 00:41:56

in that story, which one that's really natural in the story of the sleepers of the cave. Now, I wasn't I wasn't finished with it. I was basically just summarizing the themes of each one. Before looking at the details of each one, like so you can get a bird's eye view of the surah. Okay, and in really understand why is it so important that the surah must be, you know, must be repeated every week for us to be reminded. So just briefly, the last one is this, the only two gardens it's the the trial of a wealth, it's a very, very clear story. So you have the person who gets a lot of wealth and how he treats that wealth, and his companion who doesn't get all that wealth. And now he sort of

00:41:56 --> 00:42:15

teaches him how you should be with the wealth and how we should behave with the wealth, and eventually the person loses his wealth. So, you learn in the Surah, among the many, many, you know, beautiful lessons you learn about the trial of knowledge, the trial of wealth, the trial of

00:42:16 --> 00:42:36

religion. And then the last one is the trial of authority, power, rule codename because Allah gave him a lot of authority and power and he, he responds in a certain way. So these lessons are really you need you need guidance in in these matters every day, like all the time,

00:42:37 --> 00:42:42

you are always going through some form of trial and it's going to be a trial based on one of these things.

00:42:43 --> 00:42:58

And then the surah won't give you an answer as far as like a direct okay, if you get this then do that. But it teaches you tools, and it teaches you a framework of thinking so that you can be guided through those situations.

00:42:59 --> 00:43:00

Anyway, so anyway,

00:43:01 --> 00:43:11

this helps substructure of points on the surah that you mentioned you know, these these four stories. Each we're dealing with a fitna and then Allah giving you like a solution for that fitna.

00:43:13 --> 00:43:27

The fact that in between in the middle of these four stories, there's the mention of you know, the creation of mankind and the setting up of shaytaan is the enemy the eternal enemy of human beings

00:43:28 --> 00:43:29

that comes

00:43:33 --> 00:43:38

that comes right now whether this one but just another point another point in the channel or even if you're a battery

00:43:40 --> 00:43:41

company before you make a point

00:43:43 --> 00:43:44

what you've

00:43:48 --> 00:43:54

got is Julie first surgery to ill

00:43:57 --> 00:44:15

Ebert please God I mean, Gene if Sal Khan Mineola be offended that he though know who the Whoa whoa whoa holy

00:44:18 --> 00:44:24

Dooney Well, whom like uma do be Sally law the mean.

00:44:27 --> 00:44:35

Ma shut to whom Lucas was the one on one phone call

00:44:37 --> 00:44:38


00:44:42 --> 00:44:45

to whom call cause was the

00:44:47 --> 00:44:48

phone call.

00:44:49 --> 00:44:57

foresee him warmer gun to more deadly than Mobley now elbowed.

00:45:02 --> 00:45:08

I muted you say to you, you're having you're watching the stream or checking the stream or something you could you.

00:45:09 --> 00:45:11

So we just needed to mute you they

00:45:14 --> 00:45:15

have now.

00:45:17 --> 00:45:24

So, yeah, in this in the section of the surah, in the middle of these four stories, almost 100 kind of speaks about the incident

00:45:26 --> 00:45:29

where He created Adam Alayhis Salam, and commanded

00:45:30 --> 00:45:33

the angels or to prostrate to Adam Allison,

00:45:35 --> 00:45:37

in the midst of the angels was this gene

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

but who abundantly worshipped Allah, so he was allowed to be in that company, whose name was

00:45:48 --> 00:45:49

who became shaitan, basically.

00:45:51 --> 00:45:51


00:45:53 --> 00:45:54

he refused.

00:45:56 --> 00:46:06

And that is basically that was like the symbolic moment in which the enmity, eternal enmity between chattel and human beings was established.

00:46:09 --> 00:46:12

So, you have all these styles in your life,

00:46:13 --> 00:46:26

but you also have this, you know, pervasive trout throughout your life and that's the fact that shaytan is getting you like trying to pull the strings of these feet and the strings of your art in your mind to try and get you to fail at all of this out.

00:46:27 --> 00:46:33

But, you know, in terms of the structure of the zoo, or something stands out for me very beautifully as well

00:46:34 --> 00:46:36

in terms of the beginning and the end of the surah.

00:46:38 --> 00:46:41

Like if you if you just if you just read the beginning of the surah

00:46:44 --> 00:46:50

Artistico Alhamdulillah Hindi and Zela IBD LK Kitab

00:46:52 --> 00:46:55

so it's always speaks about Allah.

00:46:56 --> 00:47:06

Revelation Alhamdulillah Allah the ends Allah, and Abdi he's missing a seven the symphony to Rasulullah sallallahu al Kitab the Quran

00:47:08 --> 00:47:12

and then after that, it actually goes into the finite nature of this life.

00:47:13 --> 00:47:16

But at the end of the sewer, if you look at it from

00:47:18 --> 00:47:20

if you look at it in the reverse,

00:47:21 --> 00:47:24

Salim you will have to reverse in reverse now, the last verse Allah subhanaw

00:47:25 --> 00:47:25


00:47:28 --> 00:47:34

like in reversal, just because if I reverse the loss

00:47:40 --> 00:47:41

another shell will

00:47:42 --> 00:47:44

miss no commune

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


00:47:50 --> 00:47:55

Isla hukum in Whoa, Haider

00:47:56 --> 00:48:05

Furman Kana yellow Julie on all be fun yeah I

00:48:07 --> 00:48:08

saw the

00:48:10 --> 00:48:22

failure Milan Milan saw near home, you should be able to be here v.

00:48:25 --> 00:48:30

So, like if you look at it in reverse, almost 100 speaking about Himself,

00:48:31 --> 00:49:12

right? And then Allah subhanaw taala speaking about the fact that he made scape y and if you look at it before that, Allah Subhan Allah speaking about Rasulullah enamel and especially that's Rasulullah saw Salam, you will highlight the idea of the revelation being given to him and the last thing is Allah and if you look at the ayah just before that political Barrameda delicately met your Belinda Fidel Bahama interfaith they can be met or be what inevitably meant that speaking about the Quran, so it's as if the topics at the beginning and the end marriage Allah, Allah, Revelation Rasulullah Salam Quran at the end Allah, if you look at reverse Allah, the revelation Rasulullah saw from Quran

00:49:13 --> 00:49:20

and then at the beginning it's the finite nature of this dunya and at the end if you look at reverse it speaks about gender and gender

00:49:22 --> 00:49:23

the eternal nature of that

00:49:24 --> 00:49:31

so it's almost as if in my mind, I picture the surah like a boat you know like a boat like as these like

00:49:32 --> 00:49:33

almost as a kind of ship

00:49:36 --> 00:49:37

that is about look

00:49:46 --> 00:49:47

ways that ship in a boat

00:49:54 --> 00:49:58

just kindly explain to me what both of you been on. Notice like this one.

00:50:00 --> 00:50:03

There's like the size, yes. And then it goes down and like

00:50:05 --> 00:50:20

and in the middle is usually like a monster stuff. So it's as if, okay, you know, you're at the specific trials in this world. But if you want to prod based solution to success in all your trials

00:50:22 --> 00:50:31

that starts with Allah, recognizing that revelation following the way of Rasulullah saw lotus, recognizing the reality of this dunya and the reality of the next life

00:50:32 --> 00:50:36

and then we can deal with each of the specific trials in between.

00:50:37 --> 00:50:38


00:50:39 --> 00:50:40

I want to point that

00:50:42 --> 00:50:56

out actually, mashallah, again, reflecting on what we were doing at the masjid. The story of NaVi Brahim, and so that was salam. So, you see that in in various ways, right? Allah

00:50:57 --> 00:51:39

subhanahu Medina, demonstrates to us how he is the absolute DOER of everything when saying the story of NaVi Brahim and etc slam you see this coming through actually at several occasions. You see it when he's looking at the sun and the moon in the stars and he's saying this isn't my Lord, this is my Lord, this is my Lord. Showing that no, none of that is Allah is so okay, that's the sort of a subtle one. But then he goes on in breaks the idols right I mean, he says, I would say maybe it's not so subtle. I mean, he isn't he's the NABI of the time Yeah, but Allah allows him to go on this journey of discovery. Yeah, he looks at the moon and sees other Robbie Yeah, and then sits and then

00:51:39 --> 00:51:44

you know, he like uses his logic as well. Now a fella called Allah Now if he didn't

00:51:45 --> 00:51:49

look at obviously becomes later on in the story like you have him.

00:51:50 --> 00:52:32

You have him breaking the idols. Right? And then they ask him who did this man and then he shows the big one to show me that like only Allah has power, like the idols and you know that the idols don't have power is all false gods false deities. And then in the story II alette Alice's wallow Holika, calm, wham at Amazon. Right? Allah creates you and what you what you do, so Allah creates your actions as well. Right? These two meanings either one is Allah creates you and your idols even that Allah creates, right. But then the other meaning, which is actually how many of the hallucinogenic I did have evidence that Allah creates our actions comes from that idea. Although Hola, Coco, Walmart,

00:52:32 --> 00:53:02

Amazon, Allah creates you and what you do. So your actions that you do you get rewarded or punished based on the fact that you chose to do those actions, right since you're here. But the actual action coming into existence doesn't come through your power. Because you don't have power only Allah has power. So these that, when it comes through in the fire, yeah, now Cooney, Baroda, wasallam and Allah Ibrahim, we are let us the fire don't burn.

00:53:04 --> 00:53:38

Down burn. Because the natural human like perception is that fire burns. It is the fire and the properties of the fire that causes the burn nothing else. We as the story again shows us No, Allah creates the fire and he creates the burn. And if he so decides, then the Fire won't burn unit I mean, and if he so decides then there'll be burned without fire. So Allah shows us how he works with the means. Right? Without the means and even against the means. Right? And then it comes through again. When

00:53:39 --> 00:53:41

was the last one that it came through now

00:53:43 --> 00:53:55

when they were throwing him in the fire again, right. So he's on the, on the catapult that they built for him, because they were too scared to go near near to the fire because it was such an inferno too, so intense.

00:53:56 --> 00:54:21

So as he's on the catapult, he's making lifeguard and then when they're about to fling him into the fire, he recites haspin Allahu anomala kill imamo coordinates, according to Abdullah nobis, he was like the first ever to utter those words. Alayhi Salatu was Salam and then of course, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, again, many, many years later. But anyway, so at that time, the video comes to him. Now

00:54:23 --> 00:54:32

if you realize that Islam has come to you and ask you, even when life is good, and you're having like the best time when he asks you, is there anything that you need?

00:54:33 --> 00:54:44

If you in a situation of life and death, you're about to face this massive Inferno? Like, I think we can become very imaginative of all the things that we could need at that moment. He says no, not from you.

00:54:45 --> 00:54:52

Just because you don't do Allah does. Like this is Iman, you know that I'm mentioning this because of

00:54:53 --> 00:54:59

why am I mentioning this? It came through something about Iman, but trial of faith. I don't know.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:43

But they're just so profound. And then he doesn't want the angel to do anything. He doesn't want the angel of rain to make the rain fall. He leaves it up to Allah. Lucky, okay, this is not, this is not how we must normally behave, right? It's like, No, I don't want to take the medicine Allah will kill me, that's not normal behavior. That's it another level, we are burdened with, you know, taking the means, right the prophets osmc Take the means, because the means is normally how things work. But never believed that the means as Power Man, the power comes from Allah. And it's an important lesson that you always need to kind of keep in into perspective. So I don't know how I got to mentioning

00:55:43 --> 00:55:48

that here. But it was just something that we kind of really reflected on. So I thought I'd share it. Now.

00:55:49 --> 00:55:50

Your thoughts? Have you?

00:55:52 --> 00:55:54

Almost had Nana Muhammad.

00:55:56 --> 00:55:57

And it's amazing.

00:56:00 --> 00:56:15

So this first thing that comes to mind, you mentioned earlier on, so a little bit of the journey. Here. See, please want one thing shift use of our hammer would always tell us, Luca, you don't know, you don't understand now, what's happening Yemen. So

00:56:16 --> 00:56:23

regarding that, that was the that was the stay in, like detention, mass scale detention that was

00:56:25 --> 00:56:36

worse than detention. But I mean, it was okay, you don't understand what's happening now just saw a few years back. And like me sitting in discussions like this, and being able to Al Hamdulillah

00:56:37 --> 00:56:44

delete that eye and go backwards in whatever the case may be. Or pick out the IRA from that. Surah it's it's stuff that

00:56:46 --> 00:56:48

Alhamdulillah it's all part of this journey that I see.

00:56:50 --> 00:57:01

Yeah, Miss Darko Lee, but is the coming through of that statement of sheer, you don't know why I'm doing this now and why I'm being so harsh and odd with him. How many how many years ago just the way? Well, you

00:57:03 --> 00:57:08

know, how many years ago is how many years ago? Almost Muhammad

00:57:10 --> 00:57:14

1997 until 1999 or 96. I started mushrooms with him.

00:57:16 --> 00:57:32

One year part time and in two years full time. Alhamdulillah. So I completed an enriched add passed away in nine he passed in 2010 just after I got married. So that's just over 18 years now. If you could if you could tell him something now after that 10 years.

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

What would you tell him?

00:57:36 --> 00:57:43

He or she had to keep me in more. And she had to give me more ID and then maybe I would have been a better student. So that yeah, that

00:57:44 --> 00:58:02

the era is firstly completely different. Now. That's what one thing we understand. When we when we were much smaller, it was different time and the treatment was different. And the understanding between students and parents and teachers was different. I mean, parents would walk into the madrasa with the kids and then they tell chef chef for chili flakes in theory be nice.

00:58:04 --> 00:58:37

So they know there is no getting out of a situation you know what I mean? With a certain thing or shift you can see it somewhat later. I mean, a beautiful example of that is mana for ease. May Allah preserve him a lotta wonderful it'll tell you say part one because even more than what more than I see it I see it and that's it. And until now with his beard so began his beard so gray still on the same management advocacy and you know, but because of that lifelong relationship and the idea of that value that came with him from those staff

00:58:39 --> 00:59:14

they are greatly beneficial man and hamdulillah she would say well so what you won't see now no but just wait so a few years then you'll see so maybe four or five years after completing my faith in authority Okay, that's what shipment meant because you know it's not so difficult to prepare for Ramadan or whatever the case may be. Is you can butcher like on the move and then no then another few years went by and then I thought this is what made me look how easy it was to go to the EMA hotline you could understand the Quran maybe a little bit easier than others and you could retain the translation whatever now that's what she meant and then a few years went on you know something

00:59:14 --> 00:59:35

else happened in your life at no no this is what she was talking about. So like I'm sitting here now exactly that that we can have this discussion and I can find on all the was unsigned Lee and Massey two year and Messina over the and that's the connection of it but it's all still I'm still finding out you know the benefit of having the two stars that

00:59:37 --> 00:59:56

wasn't on the parent like when I sit person I mean look at example in the example Saturday's we had to stay in and then okay, this is not enough. So you come in on a Monday internet you listen Monday morning now is the blocker because what's Mondays so that's probably definitely a perk you're gonna get you add all weekend to learn. We didn't learn

00:59:57 --> 01:00:00

so GFC right, the weekend come now you're gonna stay in because

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

As you Madonna learn at home on a weekend tonight just make sure for the rest of the whole week you behave and you quietly come in first thing you actually listen quiet Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday you know you listen and then Friday before to actually start sending the right go go go go and then because you must know knew all week so shift must now maybe forgot that you didn't know on Monday so it seems you also home and you check your salute quiet going on and you walking out and then checks in somebody to go look

01:00:27 --> 01:00:50

at just go look at it. Just say Oh, you must didn't know you listen on Monday now. Parker Gee, you're you must back Friday, then you must come Saturday, or whatever the case may be. If it was like a Saturday didn't know your lesson. Then she was done with class. Everybody's gone home. And then she walks out of the room and then she tells on disini his beloved wife, Hasina was the name and disini

01:00:51 --> 01:01:26

Mala Yasuni, Jackie Neva la Cosina Deaconess deliver Lilia Annie. Yeah, taking reasonable and look skinnier swell of attorney. And then check goes inside. And then 10 minutes later in the syllable come running in like with a plate of glass of water. Come quickly just eat quickly before she'd come otherwise you can't back out whatever. And we conga Bismillah we slept at night go with him. Before shift must now come back off the ship passed away. When we would go visit I remember going to visit Tanzania and Toto took you on this initial column for the tune of the chicks in like additional mustn't give us but in this in this will bring the food financing the law for the noticing they say

01:01:26 --> 01:02:04

no chips to the butter but the door. And then she could scan like that. So that you must hear Yeah, that you mustn't get food. But then can they be leased over me? In other words, you know, give them food? Yes. And so she there that love for each and every one of us now, but she didn't want to know she didn't want you must know. Yeah, he's your friend. Because why that's gonna spoil the Haber sort of the relationship that you would have the or the idea of leukemia. There's a certain line that you must walk on. And there's nothing that must take you away from that lineman not even thinking that chick is not going to be nice to you or whatever now, but on the days that you didn't know

01:02:04 --> 01:02:24

Alhamdulillah then she called it a left over Papa. Like, hey, the new SMA will start the day because in your lesson, yes. Okay, what's up? So from the Lummi Did you ever reach a point where you felt like why am I doing this man? Like, like, were you like your parents is making you do it and you just frustrated on the fumble. Hamdulillah I mean,

01:02:26 --> 01:02:29

my beloved father is going to give me back now you must watch this one. But

01:02:31 --> 01:02:57

consider him and give him double in terms of wisdom now. Like My Daddy used the primary tool to like do the maximum like Alhamdulillah because of the fact that I was your I tell this to the students actually quite a bit. The adult students that that teach Quran so I tell them that, you know, through the grace of Allah, I don't know what point in my life when I wasn't reading Quran I don't know what point like it wasn't. Quran was always just the

01:02:58 --> 01:03:20

end. It's something that my dad made sure of even before I went to, to show a few segments. So in that regard, it was like okay, certain Bucha bitchy cry, complain or whatever, but we leave the masjid and we go stop at the shop and then this ice cream and then we'll go for fajita the next day and sitting back empty. And then it's a milkshake in Sedona to request and then I was like wait to see

01:03:22 --> 01:04:02

more click and donuts okay, but I could add sweets Okay, let's see how we can afford we can take this thing I will only go play cricket when z whatever. They will do this stuff. Yeah, go portrayed. Listen, come to me about tables and stuff. Go back to listen to me. Yeah, you know, listen, right in the computer, they listen. And then I go to my room and booth is cricket back the or this ball V waiting for me whatever the case was, you know, and that's kind of how my my parents always like, made that argument say look here and shifts thing was you look after the Quran and Allah will look after you. Now you will tell us that, you know, when when you get started, right, especially when

01:04:02 --> 01:04:08

you like me in somebody, I'm not a child, so to speak, feel like a child, sometimes.

01:04:10 --> 01:04:12

I grow growing old is inevitable. Growing up is optional.

01:04:14 --> 01:04:57

So So basically, it's quite intimidating, right? To get into that whole thing. It's like a huge investment and memorize the whole Quran people always think about like, it seems impossible. And I'm saying this because I know that it's neither had experience in open up a little bit for me so that I could, you know, taste myself but it's like, you can do it. But how do you get people to see that? That like what would motivate them into taking that journey of it? Because that's essentially what we're talking about. It's like your journey of Aden and the journey of Nabi Musa reset Islam and he did and the type of sacrifice that it takes and the type of of adapt and appreciation that it takes.

01:04:57 --> 01:04:59

So what what's the

01:05:00 --> 01:05:04

Best advice for somebody that wants to but they are thinking like, Yo,

01:05:06 --> 01:05:14

that's a difficult task. Maybe they can't even badger and have a dream of being half is look if you want to go to Makkah How far is Macau from Cape Town

01:05:15 --> 01:05:19

very far ready for so you think okay there's no play now we're gonna go to Micah

01:05:20 --> 01:05:21


01:05:22 --> 01:06:03

that antedates to the by the by the by the texting I'm just going off on a tangent here but please do so she she will tell two sisters no excuses this and under way she said well the tax eating mama Allah Hama and when the New Year again Mama is going to Maka Mama is going to get into my car. My mom was taking the other grandchildren to Makkah, you know, you don't connect the two together. But the beginners class that I'm teaching now, adults, the idea is and this is I suppose the human thing, we must motivated by seeing results meant. You want to see you know how many views or how many verse or whatever the case may be, we are generally motivated by results. So if that is the

01:06:03 --> 01:06:21

case, I mean, it's a die that I make. Yeah, Allah grant us, grant me to see the little bit of fruit of the effort that I'm making. Because essentially that is something that that assists and help someone in in converting to a certain parchment.

01:06:23 --> 01:06:27

And of course that fruits will come out if Allah subhanaw taala decides

01:06:29 --> 01:07:12

the realisation Quran specifically is of the trying to perhaps instill the need for every single person to be connected to Quran that shouldn't start with leukemia, you must memorize the whole book because that is a very daunting thing. If you look at it in that way. You learning one, one little one surah at a time, that's idea of landmarks. So Surah Fatiha, if you can memorize Surah Fatiha, then, essentially, you can memorize anything else. Yeah, and I mean for the older folk SubhanAllah. So I have one student or hamdulillah for over the last nine years, since I came back from Joburg, the when I came back from Joburg. He was like okay now when am I coming to butcher? And then I said

01:07:12 --> 01:07:50

okay come Monday. And then he came Monday then he said okay now when am I coming again? And I said okay, come Thursday. And then for like a year he just recited inside the Quran twice a week. And after that he I said okay, started memorizing. And he started memorizing and nine years later, is completed about off of the Quran Al Hamdulillah. And you want these on his own steam, and he will come every week, and you will make like a crazy load of mistakes. Now, if it isn't his new lesson you might know. But he's back. Listen, let's always mistakes, like every play is you'll make four or five mistakes, but he didn't give up. But what is the lesson for me as the teacher look at this

01:07:50 --> 01:08:31

older man in his 40s 50s memorizing Quran, so he makes a mistake and I give him one and it makes another mistake and I give him one and I constantly just give him one as you're making mistakes. I give him one and I give him one. But he is effort duty that is like remarkable man because he's constantly connected to Quran. He does his one two Jesus every day. Whether it is from the Quran or from his memory however he does it. He is constantly reading Quran. So for all those that want to memorize my new sort of revised advice, don't memorize Connect. If you want to memorize Quran, don't memorize Quran, just make sure that you read Quran every single day and inshallah Allah will make it

01:08:31 --> 01:08:37

such that you will become much more fluent and even then memorize think of the fact that did you

01:08:38 --> 01:09:19

look at that and if you don't you're gonna get back no I can I can speak of experience like real world experience. I couldn't better to save my life. I'll see it straight I mean I could I could I put the ladies together. But with great difficulty and then I'm into that and I'm like that how I got in Allah Allah knows they didn't taste me x sama has kept the taste so I was learning now in sort of along with having to you know lead and it was it was quite daunting like reading Kira to all the for the health students who came me like Abu Bakr is in my class. Easy peasy. Easy peasy now struggling with it. But I could get the Nahu and stuff because it's you know, like, I mean,

01:09:19 --> 01:09:59

eventually it does now okay, Quran now you can escape anymore and then literally just butchering, butchering every single day. Like, even if it's just the revision of the ayat that we win that I gave up my social life, it just Padgett like we really revised that changes a lot. At the end of the day, I was fluent in Quranic recitation, I haven't lived in Angola. And I mean, that's like something over the years perhaps we've have 100. Now all the different Quran programs. The focus is much more predominantly been in terms of the understanding of Quran but not so much for the adults in terms of just the Pacha aspect. So you would find students having gone through all first

01:10:00 --> 01:10:34

The second year type program with a digital translation of the Quran, but they still don't have the same couldn't or they don't have the connection maybe that they sought when going into a program like that now, because of the fact that they pictured themselves sitting in patching every day. And then they were done with the course they were in really the moon they perhaps envisioned, you know, studying the Arabic and then knowing how to read. Yeah, him. Yeah, but essentially these two different skills, different skill sets in different fields. Sorry, I just want to ask Monica Zakaria, what did you make your organize a coffeemaker?

01:10:37 --> 01:10:40

Know Now that's how you brag online.

01:10:42 --> 01:10:43

What did you make?

01:10:45 --> 01:10:49

Now I just made a record. Is that money? I'm crying me.

01:10:53 --> 01:10:54

Oh, telling me you must do sleep Italy.

01:10:56 --> 01:11:17

Yeah, can you hear me? Okay. Yeah, it's fine. I just woke up. I think it was a shame. We like the children to make a noise. Yeah, I love the children to make a noise. Whether it be on a podcast or you know, in the houses of worship with great means you have a future. Sadie, I wanted to ask you a question. I asked my understanding this question as well, right.

01:11:21 --> 01:11:24

Oh, okay. But actually, when asked me about a different teacher,

01:11:26 --> 01:11:31

you guys know, because that was a good boy. No, I was too bang when I saw the other ones get back.

01:11:33 --> 01:11:35

To back. It actually didn't get back that I was like

01:11:38 --> 01:11:45

Sadie, I didn't ask you. Melinda Rahim. Allah Allah. He's passed away almost a year now.

01:11:46 --> 01:11:47


01:11:48 --> 01:11:53

checked, it's very close to here, isn't it? Just after Ramadan? Subhan Allah.

01:11:54 --> 01:11:59

So that was one year now that journey of knowledge that you had with him? And he's just one of you many teachers, right?

01:12:02 --> 01:12:05

What type of insight did he teach you?

01:12:06 --> 01:12:09

As far as what a teacher should be like?

01:12:11 --> 01:12:13

That you appreciate more and more each day now?

01:12:14 --> 01:12:17

Because you don't have it anymore? If you know what I mean.

01:12:21 --> 01:12:26

So hello, I think you know the fact that he was inspirational.

01:12:27 --> 01:12:32

Can I can maybe go first. And we like hearing the child. It's fine.

01:12:36 --> 01:12:37

He's very loud enough.

01:12:41 --> 01:12:42

Maybe you won't you.

01:12:44 --> 01:12:46

Here on the internet, you want to compete

01:12:47 --> 01:12:48

on the internet.

01:12:53 --> 01:12:54

To compete with one another.

01:12:56 --> 01:12:59

The more or less Carioca you have to compete him. She

01:13:01 --> 01:13:03

can hear you cry. You don't

01:13:04 --> 01:13:05

like it?

01:13:07 --> 01:13:23

Often, you must make them love the morning is not like, I'm looking at our colleague Manasa and Jackson's status is on on WhatsApp. And he's got a whole lot of memes going on. Yeah, the clinic. Like it's all about the journey of HIV and the stuff that they

01:13:24 --> 01:13:43

say is monolithic, KDF mission, I want to know what the what you can share with this question. I asked him about his journey of Ireland, and what type of insight he gained from his experiences mulatto, as a teacher, and inequality learned as far as what the teacher should be. Now, because that's just the practical lesson. And then the most I got,

01:13:44 --> 01:13:48

I think for all our teachers, we got patients, you know, definitely misses.

01:13:50 --> 01:13:59

You know, for me, the amount of if I just think back to one thing just popped into my mind, if I think back to Madonna Ali, and the amount

01:14:01 --> 01:14:03

of all the amount of effort and

01:14:04 --> 01:14:05


01:14:06 --> 01:14:10

Muller would put into the lessons and the amount of feedback they would do for the students. And,

01:14:11 --> 01:14:14

you know, for me, that was very, that was inspirational.

01:14:15 --> 01:14:22

As in also in terms of, if I think back Manohara No, then

01:14:24 --> 01:14:33

just the fact that we if we you sat in his claw, actually, there's so much, you know, there's so much going the fact that you could feel that he loved you

01:14:36 --> 01:14:42

or that he had high hopes for you that he wanted good for you. And oftentimes he would articulate that as well.

01:14:43 --> 01:14:47

At times, you will, you know, tell the students when he's proud of them.

01:14:49 --> 01:14:59

And over and above that, like when we would be in class he would he would vary like just the way he taught in the oceans of knowledge that he imported with the suit

01:15:00 --> 01:15:09

Felicity that he did it. And in his own unassuming nature for me, that was, you know, he inspired me. But you couldn't sit in one of these classes without being inspired.

01:15:12 --> 01:15:21

So now, in fact, if I, if I could jump in the one of the big lessons that you always left us with us, you get three types of teachers.

01:15:22 --> 01:15:29

Right? You get the teacher who knows the lesson, like the book, right? And he teaches the book.

01:15:30 --> 01:15:34

And that's most teachers. So they would come in, this is the book that I'm teaching the teach The Book,

01:15:36 --> 01:16:27

teach that teaches you the subject. Right. So as a science, the book is just a springboard for the subject. But I'm not teaching you a book, teaching you a science subject. And then a level beyond that is the teacher that inspires, like, it's beyond the book that's beyond the subject, in leaves you with the inspiration to become a scholar in that science, say, gives you that, that thirst, that yours is the crayon. And then you also like, you know, when you meet him initially, it's like, it's this new world of scholarship man, like a question comes up, and the world comes to an end until we find the answer to that question. And the question is in books, and we will sit in the library and

01:16:27 --> 01:17:12

check books and books and books and research and research and discussing, break our brains read a book, 600 pages, you know, to get more insight into a particular issue, right pages, etc. And the thirst just never becomes it never gets quenched. And then you think like you Oh, when am I ever gonna be like that? Again, and am I gonna be able to open up like thick books and you know, read up heavy masa ale and things like that. It's amazing, you come in, and that's it ever thinking of when you leave the bin. Number one, you feel you feel dumb, because you realize how little you actually know. And number two, you've got this insatiable thirst, like,

01:17:13 --> 01:17:31

a thirst that we hope and we pray that you may never, never let it become saturated. But you have that thirst and that's the type of teacher that that in my opinion, he was an I take that as a listen to you know, try to be that for others and show

01:17:32 --> 01:17:39
