continuing from last week's footpath, in which we discussed the virtues of surah, guff, we very briefly mentioned and discussed the story of Musa alayhis salam that is mentioned in through our comp and I said industry, we will elaborate on that story, and going to some of the lessons that we can extract from the story. So, here's some background first before we go into the story. The story of Musa alayhis salam is the story that is told the most integral, it appears most often in the Quran, followed only by the stoning of other monies. So these are the two stories you will find most in the Quran was Musa Elisa and they are the money Salah. Now most of the time, when the story of
Musa alayhis salam is mentioned in the Quran, is either talking about his dealings with the pharaoh or he's dealing with Bani Israel after the battle. But the story mentioned surah Alka is unique. It is a story that deals with neither of these two. It deals with a a unique third story that's not mentioned anywhere else in the Quran, he will find the story of Mousavi Salah, most of it is repeated multiple times in the Quran. But the segment found in Surah alkaff is not repeated, it's found only to Raka. So this is a very unique part of the story. This is the part of the story that many people are unaware of.
So the story is mentioned very briefly in Torah aka Huggies, in Santiago Harney that elaborates upon it and gives us more details about the story. And the way that this, the Hadees begins is that Musa alayhis salam was delivering a footpath to his community. And one of the very strong eel asked him is the anyone who has more knowledge in you. So Moosa olusola thinking about it, really thinking about the fact that he is the diabetes, the law school, he has what he speaks directly to the angels around you. So therefore, he concluded that there is nobody with more knowledge than him. So a lot of a Hanover, Dallas in Revelation, informing Mussolini, that there is an individual in a nearby
event or in a far off land and the distant land, who knows things that you don't know. No, he didn't say he knows more than you know. He says he knows what you don't. So Moosa Peninsula, when he hears about this individual, who knows things he does not know, his first reaction is, I want to learn from him. And so he gets on to he goes on the long journey, and he travels with his apprentice. You shall even noon or the Salah, so you shall becomes the prophet of Bunnings, Ronnie after the death of Saudi syrup. At this point in time, he is learning from Sally's lamb, he's following him around. He's like being a servant to him. He's learning how to be like him because he's going to take over
when musasa passes away. So the two of them go on this journey together, Moosa and Lucia and the two of them, they travel for a very long distance, and keep a fish in the basket because a lot to handle the reveal to Sally cylinder is going to have a sign that they are near this individual that they need to meet. And then sign is something miraculous is going to happen with this fish. So they put this fish in the basket, and they go on this long journey. And after a while, they get tired, they rescue the ocean to Sally's falls asleep. While he is asleep. The fish comes alive and jumps into the ocean and swims away, and you shall witnesses this, but by the time boosah Elisa wakes up, you
shall have forgotten about it. And they continue with the journey. For another long, long time. Only Allah knows how long the journey went on, until moose Ali salam, he asked you shot this half hour lunch. And then you Charlene Salaam remembers that of the fish and he tells him and then Moosa tells you that's the same we're looking for. So they go back, they go back to the spot where the fish jumped into the ocean. And at that spot, they need an elderly man. They need a man who has a mysterious bitumen is something special about him. Now, this individual, there is a lot of controversy in our history as to who he really was. Personally his name, some of the historians
volume, either some called further alpha generally
It's all of these words have the same translation, the green one, right? They were when they see that the vertical was any barren land that he went through, it would be revived and become lush and green again. So that's one point. But what was his name? The second point? Was he a prophet? Or was he was he? Again, these difference of opinion amongst the Ola some of the Allah viewed him as a prophet. Right. Some of them viewed him as a body, I am inclined to the opinion that he was a prophet, because when you look at the story that will come, it's clear that he's receiving revelation from Allah. And so this indicates that he was most likely a be a third point of
Was he a prophet sent to a people at that time? Or is he was he gifted with a long life and what we mean by a long life, there are many groups of Muslims, they will believe that freedom is still alive today, and that he will only be killed by the job, that he will live up to that time, that this is again, a point of controversy amongst different schools of Sunni Islam. And again, both positions are found amongst Sunni Islam, and it shouldn't be something that we fight over. And so again, the position I follow is that he was a prophet of that time, and he passed away a long time ago. Even casino brings disposition forward when we die on the higher end, you mentioned multiple evidences
for this. So if anybody wants evidence for that position, you can open up even casinos book can be read what he has to say. He mentioned five reasons why he either was most likely your profit and why he most likely passed away. And that's really what I believe to be the struggle. So let's get back to the story now. So he did he set up he is this mysterious man, that Masonic salon and you shall meet and so, mousseline salon asks him and he says to him, I want to learn from him. Let me accompany you for a while, so I can learn from you and tells him that you're not going to be able to be patient with me. I'm going to do things that you're not going to understand. And so Musab Elisa
says no, I will be patient inshallah I will be patient with just give me a chance. So please don't reach one condition tells us you can join me You can follow me around for a while. On one condition. You see me doing something strange. Don't ask me why.
I just don't ask questions. So Moosa Elisa agrees. Now from this point onwards, in the story, you shall isn't mentioned again, Allah knows best when he accompanies them or when he waits for the we don't know this, that point is left out. But they continue with the journey. And the Quran in surah. Allah mentioned three interesting things that happen in the journey of Hussein figure. Number one, you need to cross a river. So a group of people who are not doing very well financially, they they run like a boat to get people's lives across the river, right? And so they give Moosa Africa a ride for free. And as a golden cross, He then takes an axe and he breaks the ship, he makes a whole
industry. So Alex gets upset and he says, Why are you doing this? And it reminds him, you're not going to be able to be patient with me, I told you. So Moosa decides to keep quiet and to just carry on with the job. When they arrive on the other side, neither does something even stranger and something that moves are rightly Musashi, some writing he had, you know, to speak up against, in that feeder approached a young boy and killed him.
And he was approached the young boy and killed it. So Musashi somehow the How can you kill an innocent child? And it tells you that I told you not going to be able to be patient with me. And so Moosa says, you know, this is, this is tough stuff with it. I thought, so, I'm running out of excuses. One more time, I asked a question it's over. So they go to a pub, and it's almost nighttime, and you need a place to rest. And the people of this town are not hospitable to them at all. Now, historically, before the modern era, there was this culture of hospitality, that when you travel to a town, somebody will need to stay in the home. Right. And even islamically is actually
our duty to the cabin is seen on the properties. This is something we don't know about anymore. Because nowadays, we have hotels, and we have, you know, this whole travel culture. But technically, this is part of our show, that we are supposed to be hospitable to people. And so mousseline Sunday, we are right at the start, and no one is giving him the slightest bit of hospitality. People are extremely mean to them, and rude to them. And to his credit,
he sees a wall that's about to collapse and fix it. So musasa suggests he says, shouldn't you charge some money for that? I mean, they being mean to us while you fix fixing the world for free. So hidden themselves, that this is a device to many questions. This is the end of our journey. And so then he explains to him, he explains to him why he did what he did. And again, this whole everything I mentioned now is insurable
Go back later read the translation and see what some hacker mentioned the story.
So he mentioned his reasons for doing these three things, either Anakin Salam says that regarding that show, there was a thing going by with hijacking the ships of people. So I damaged the ship. So they'll take it off. If you fixing it, the Kingdom Hall passes, we'll have to ship with it. It's a little bit damaged for this to act.
As for the boy, Allah informed me in this is the proof that he was a prophet. He says, Allah informed me that he was growing, you will go into grow up to be a disbeliever and to cause fitna to his parents. So Allah commanded me to take his life and allow one replacing with a better child. Again, only a newbie would receive revelation only interview will be allowed to kill someone that nobody else can see you can kill people, but to do so it's only gonna be who will be given this level of authority. So that's why this consider the evidence that he was most likely a heavy. And then he said, As for the town, Sydney with some orphans in the town, and the treasure was hidden
under the water. So if the world collapsed, the people of that town, you saw the kind of people that they were, they would have stolen the treasure. So I fixed the wall so they don't get the treasure. So the when these orphans grow up, they can get the inheritance is protected.
And so this is the story of Moosa and Peter mentioned into regard, I want to go through some lessons that we can extract from the story. Lesson number one, bad things happen for good reasons. This is the key point of the story. With only Allah knows why things happen to us as Muslims, whenever something goes wrong in life, our first reaction should be allowed to the best, perhaps it is somewhere in this, perhaps there is some good in this that I don't understand. So for these people who are going in the shop, and the shop breaks, you know, DVDs themselves should blow how ungrateful those people were, we gave them arrived in local shop, they don't realize they've been saved from
the shipping stolen. Again, we can relate to this, perhaps we get a punctured tire or cosmic starting to have to love saving us from being hijacked, or something like that. Right. Sometimes the lesser calamity happens to protect us from a greater calamity. And sometimes we see this in our lives, sometimes something will happen. And in our lives, we will see that Oh, that was good for you know, many, many stories of somebody versus a flight and the airplane crashes. Somebody missed a job interview, and they ended up opening up a business in the scene happening. If this didn't happen, that wouldn't have happened. But sometimes we don't. And sometimes we don't know, what is the head
behind it. And we will only know the afterlife. And that's what the second story is about. Those parents who lost their child for the rest of their life, nobody know why their child died. All they going to know some stranger kill the child in the woods. And all in the afternoon, how would they know that the wisdom behind you wasn't a child who grew up.
And so sometimes things happen in our life, that we cannot understand the will survive.
In those situations, we still have to just trust
and know that there must be a need to happen.
The second lesson that we can take from Surah COVID. And Sonia who said is that sometimes the opposite happens as well, if you see something nice happening to evil person, and you wonder why, like we see the city being mean to move the needle, and he fixes the wall for free. So from the outside, it looks like they will mean and they got the world fixed for free. But in reality that was preventing them from accessing the treasure. So sometimes a good thing seems to be happening to a bad person, but the good thing is not good for
so you see someone becoming a billionaire. And a person is not a good person, being a billionaire may not be good for them. And Allah is testing him to remove a unit. Right? You see sometimes the good stuff of this world also unjust and we forget about that, as well. So these are two of the lessons that we can take for puravankara sometimes bad things happen in our life must be patient, you must just a word of wisdom. Understand that everything happens according to the will of Allah and through the wisdom of Allah. And number two, sometimes we see something good happening to an evil person, once again, understand this is from the word of Allah. This is from the wisdom of Allah
and Allah knows best why he's allowing that to happen, perhaps to prevent something else or perhaps because some guru come up with or perhaps just as a test that individual Allah knows best. We trust our wisdom in everything that happens in our life.
And you have to do that
in Al Hamdulillah.
Let's stop for one minute
Continuing with our lessons from the story of Musashi Salah
another beautiful lesson we learned from the story is the attitude we should have towards knowledge. Mousavi Salah at this point in time, is the leader of bunnies. He is Rasulullah. He is the one who spoke to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is the one who received the Torah. But still when he hears about someone who knows something he does not know. His first reaction is I want to
I want to learn from him. I want to seek knowledge. This is the humanity of the people of knowledge that is supposed to be always seeking knowledge. Are we supposed to be students for life? We should never reach a point in our life where we say I know Islam. I know everything there is to know. But that humility and the eagerness to seek knowledge should always be there.
A second lesson related to knowledge that we can take from this study is that one of the best ways to learn is to accompany the righteous people. So we see you surely Salah? How does he learn from Musashi surah by a company do you want to join? Moosa Elisa, our dealer completed on a Sarah by a company on a journey. When you spend time in the company of the righteous, you learn more in from sitting in a class, because you learn from the life side, you learn from the character, you learn from the private practices, you learn from the way of practicing Islam, you get a genuine experience of Islam. And even with our downward This is the best way to do doubt. You want people to see the
beauty of Islam, show it to them in your practice. This is the best way to learn. This is the best way to teach love Islam, and spend time with those who love Islam better than us. And this is one of the ways of seeking knowledge. The final lesson that we can take from the story of moose and related to knowledge is that no matter how much we learn, we should never say things like I know best, or I do better, or I'm the most knowledgeable person in this town, or I am the most knowledgeable person in the city. We should never ever make statements like that. For other no matter how much we learn, actually, whatever we learn should make us more humble. And the more we know, the more we should
consider ourselves students. The more we know, the more we should realize that there's so much that we don't know. And this is the beauty of real knowledge. real knowledge humbled you, you will find that often the people who are arrogant about their knowledge having studied Islam in details for those who've studied Islam for years and decades, the other ones who are most humble about acknowledge and always wanting to learn more, and always wanting to learn from others know that Mussolini's Anna did not ask what his qualifications is he older than me is your higher level of profit beneath his his nation, but in the mind, nation, all the messages, he knows something I don't
know I want to learn.
And this should always be our attitude towards build towards knowledge. So these are some of the lessons we can take from the story of Musa May Allah make us who the people of knowledge may make us from the people of practice, maybe because of the people of Biafra Dawa and other beings means
