le coup de Nova Come on up. Hi la hora Sula, who sakoda 1000 avina.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the Quran

00:01:05--> 00:01:06

as a guide.

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

As a reminder,

00:01:13--> 00:01:16

in a moment now which I want to reveal in the parameter,

00:01:18--> 00:01:19

or stories,

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

the purpose of which

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

the purpose of which is

00:01:28--> 00:01:33

to give us lessons that we derive and learn from these stories.

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

You can also see hidden regulatory legal aid

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

in their authorities

00:01:42--> 00:01:46

or lessons for people who will understand

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

and one of the most frequently mentioned stories in the Quran.

00:01:55--> 00:02:03

The most recurring story that a lot mentions in the Quran is the story of Musa enthiran.

00:02:04--> 00:02:05

And when he saw he

00:02:08--> 00:02:09

and so

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

he oppressed that he is brought in

00:02:22--> 00:02:25

he will press there did a lot of you justice is towards him.

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

Enough era philology.

00:02:30--> 00:02:34

What you're sharing your story for thought if I took me home,

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

indeed from home,

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

elevated himself in the land

00:02:42--> 00:02:50

and divided the people into groups, his own people and why he lived in Sweden than

00:02:55--> 00:03:01

it was before Amina whom is the He is our album in the hutan CD.

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

He would kill their boys

00:03:09--> 00:03:13

and make their women make their females to remain alive.

00:03:16--> 00:03:18

So Allah subhana wa tada told us

00:03:20--> 00:03:24

of his tyranny, and also had told us

00:03:27--> 00:03:30

of how he said Musa alayhis salam

00:03:33--> 00:03:34

to give him data.

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

And how

00:03:38--> 00:03:41

eventually moosari or inserra

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

prevailed over the magician.

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

And so the suffering and the torture

00:03:50--> 00:03:55

reached a boiling point. And the hearts of the believers

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

the hearts of the believers, were waiting

00:04:02--> 00:04:05

for Allah subhanho wa Taala to see them

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

and when they were about to lose all hope.

00:04:11--> 00:04:21

Allah subhana wa tada revealed to Sally is Sarah. What hyena Isla de se da da da, da, da da.

00:04:23--> 00:04:24

We inspire to lose

00:04:27--> 00:04:31

to leave now, with my sleeves

00:04:33--> 00:04:33

and

00:04:36--> 00:04:39

four, surely you are going to be pursued.

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

So,

00:04:42--> 00:04:44

he has gene

00:04:45--> 00:04:49

and so, upon hearing that they have left,

00:04:51--> 00:04:55

he sends mobilizers into the cities in

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

the metro polygon

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

in D

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

People are outcasts. And they're only a few.

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

What a no, no, no, no ha.

00:05:09--> 00:05:13

And they have enraged us. We're in engineering.

00:05:15--> 00:05:19

And we are all, we are all on alert.

00:05:21--> 00:05:21

So

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

what

00:05:32--> 00:05:42

you saw here. And so a law tells us that we cause them to come out, meaning Pharaoh and his troops, we cause them to come out

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

of their palaces,

00:05:46--> 00:05:52

of their springs, their gardens, their treasures, we cause them to leave their home,

00:05:53--> 00:06:02

thinking that they would go back to their homes, but Allah tells us that we cause Bani Israel to inherit all of that

00:06:10--> 00:06:11

pursued them.

00:06:14--> 00:06:15

Sunrise

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

and so Musa alayhis salam and the believers they left

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

upon the command of Allah.

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

But they didn't know where they were going.

00:06:29--> 00:06:32

And they didn't know how they would be saved.

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

And they didn't know how their enemy would be destroyed.

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

And so they left

00:06:41--> 00:06:43

until they reach the sea.

00:06:47--> 00:06:48

And so the sea is in front of them

00:06:50--> 00:06:52

and their enemy is behind them.

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

Imagine the feelings of the believers at this point.

00:07:01--> 00:07:04

Where can they go? Where can they hide?

00:07:05--> 00:07:11

Salama Tara Al Jazeera Nicola, Abu Musa in Nanaimo dracoon.

00:07:14--> 00:07:18

When the two sides faced off, stood face to face.

00:07:20--> 00:07:24

The people have moved said they said, it's over.

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

That's it we're doing.

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

They caught us.

00:07:33--> 00:07:35

But what was the response of Moosa Holly who said,

00:07:42--> 00:07:46

in America, Robbie's a dean? He said, No,

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

it's not over.

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

I have my lord who will guide us.

00:07:56--> 00:08:08

I have my lord who will guide us, even Musa alayhis salam had no clue what would happen, how they would be saved. But the difference between him and his people was

00:08:09--> 00:08:10

is,

00:08:11--> 00:08:14

is your key is tawakkol.

00:08:16--> 00:08:23

And this is how the believer should be in this life. No matter what the circumstances,

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

no matter what the odds may be against you.

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

Put your trust in Allah.

00:08:31--> 00:08:37

He believed with certainty that Allah would save them, even though there's nowhere to go.

00:08:39--> 00:08:44

For Oh, hyena Isla Moosa, and he'll be hasakah bio.

00:08:46--> 00:08:49

Fellow kosaka. And I couldn't think of him.

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

And so at that point,

00:08:53--> 00:08:56

Allah revealed to Musa command commanding him,

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

the staff that you had,

00:09:01--> 00:09:02

strike it,

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

strike the sea with your staff.

00:09:07--> 00:09:16

And so all of a sudden the seas split. And as a law tells us here, the two sides of the sea became like elevated towering mountain.

00:09:20--> 00:09:25

And so Musa alayhis salam, and the believers proceeded.

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

They went forward

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

with not a single drop of water touching them

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

until they made it to the other side.

00:09:40--> 00:09:43

At this point, Musa alayhis salam,

00:09:44--> 00:09:48

he thought the same stuff if he would hit it again.

00:09:53--> 00:09:55

This he would go back together

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

and sit around and his troops

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

would not be able to follow them. And they would be saying

00:10:06--> 00:10:07

the plan of the law was otherwise.

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

And so Allah subhanahu attallah told me, I know

00:10:14--> 00:10:20

what to kill baraha in Rwanda, Morocco mckoon

00:10:21--> 00:10:24

leave the sea as it is.

00:10:25--> 00:10:30

We are a people they are soldiers and troops that will drown.

00:10:33--> 00:10:45

What has left some marine. So we cause Moosa we cause fear to home, and his troops to pursue them to enter into the sea, and Sofia home,

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

upon seeing what he had seen,

00:10:49--> 00:10:53

instead of taking admonition, seeing the power of Allah.

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

Instead,

00:10:57--> 00:10:59

as is the way of the tyrants,

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

they become more diluted,

00:11:03--> 00:11:09

and Sophiatown upon seeing this. He told his troops, look at the sea.

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

Look at how it has parted.

00:11:14--> 00:11:17

For us, to enter,

00:11:19--> 00:11:21

and to chase after our enemy.

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

Let's go.

00:11:24--> 00:11:25

And so the enter

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

what Angelina musawah mama who met him, and we save Moosa, and those who were with them, all of them.

00:11:39--> 00:11:45

And then we drowned the rest of them, meaning for the home, and his troops.

00:11:47--> 00:11:49

So this was the end

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

of the timing.

00:11:53--> 00:12:03

And this was the end of his tyranny. And this was the end of his oppression, and his bloodshed.

00:12:05--> 00:12:27

And so imagine the feelings of Musa alayhis salam, and the believers upon seeing and witnessing the destruction of their enemy before their very eyes. That was a de to be remembered. And that was a day that would not be converted in the annals of history.

00:12:28--> 00:12:34

My dear brothers and sisters, that day, was the 10th of Muharram.

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

It was the day

00:12:40--> 00:12:48

in which Allah saved Moosa and the believers and drowned fear to home and his troops.

00:12:50--> 00:12:59

Because of that, Musa alayhis salam on the anniversary of that day, he would fast out of gratitude to Allah.

00:13:01--> 00:13:04

And when he is strong, he would also fast after him.

00:13:09--> 00:13:12

And so when the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam migrated to Medina,

00:13:14--> 00:13:29

in a bus rodeo, wahoo and Houma. He says, when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrived in Medina, he found the Jews, they would be fasting on Ashura, which is the 10th of Muharram.

00:13:30--> 00:13:33

So he asked them, Why do you fast on this day?

00:13:34--> 00:13:46

And so they said that this was a day, in which a lot delivered Vinny israr eater and Moosa and drowned Farah home and his people.

00:13:47--> 00:13:58

And so Musa alayhis salam fasted on this day, and we also fast on this day. And so upon this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:13:59--> 00:14:03

we have more of a right to you than Moosa.

00:14:04--> 00:14:12

We have a closer connection to you than Musa because we are upon his Deen. As for you, you deviated

00:14:13--> 00:14:18

and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam give orders to the companions to fast on this day.

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

And then

00:14:21--> 00:14:39

after that, Allah subhanahu wa taala prescribed Ramadan as the month to fast and so after that fasting on the day of the horseshoe, right was no longer obligatory. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would still fasting

00:14:40--> 00:14:43

until shortly before his death.

00:14:44--> 00:14:52

Some of the companions they asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that this is a day that is venerated by the Jews.

00:14:53--> 00:14:56

So why should we fast on this thing?

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

If I live to see next year,

00:15:04--> 00:15:07

then we will fast on the ninth as well.

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

And so the sooner is the fast

00:15:13--> 00:15:25

on the day of the 10th of Muharram, which is tomorrow, but you're also fast a day with it. Why? to oppose and be different

00:15:26--> 00:15:28

to Nikita and to the jury.

00:15:30--> 00:15:50

And so the sooner is too fast, the ninth and the 10th. If you're not able to, then the 10th and the 11th. But if you're not able to, then it is okay to at least fast. The 10th of Muharram for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever fasts on this day, it is hoped

00:15:52--> 00:15:58

that his sins of the previous year will be erased. We'll be expiated

Some Naka? Demetri what, what Taku La, la hobby? prima donna Loon. My dear brothers and sisters, the 10th of Muharram is a very, very special day.

00:17:28--> 00:17:32

It is the day in which Allah seized when he is ill

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

from that tyrant.

00:17:36--> 00:17:37

But it is also a day

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

in history,

00:17:41--> 00:17:50

a day in which one of the great companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was killed unjustly.

00:17:51--> 00:18:01

And that was the beloved grandson of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Al Hussein in Halle robiola.

00:18:02--> 00:18:08

So there's no doubt that his death was unjust

00:18:10--> 00:18:13

is no Muslim who would ever

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

or joyful

00:18:18--> 00:18:19

on such an occasion.

00:18:20--> 00:18:23

However, having said that,

00:18:24--> 00:18:40

it does not mean that we overreact and we steer away from the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and invent things into our Deen, which have no part of it.

00:18:42--> 00:18:48

And so, if it was seemingly legitimate, sanely legitimate?

00:18:50--> 00:18:53

What does she do on the 10th of Muharram

00:18:57--> 00:19:00

than it would have been permissible to do the same

00:19:02--> 00:19:04

on any other day of the year,

00:19:05--> 00:19:11

for there is no day of the year except that we have in history,

00:19:12--> 00:19:17

the death the unjust death, of the reformist

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

Not only that,

00:19:23--> 00:19:37

but the father of Al Hussein rather Johann hari abena Vitali brought the Allahu and he was also unjustly killed, and his son Hussein lived 21 years after that.

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

And there is no mention

00:19:42--> 00:19:46

that he took that day to be significant

00:19:48--> 00:19:49

that he made

00:19:50--> 00:19:57

a memorial out of that day that he made that d a d of sorrow, a day of grief

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

and there's no doubt

00:20:01--> 00:20:02

The Halle rhodiola who

00:20:04--> 00:20:08

is far greater than his son, and Hussein.

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

Not only that,

00:20:12--> 00:20:17

but some of the prophets and messengers of Allah, were unjustly slean.

00:20:19--> 00:20:24

Some of the companions who were beloved to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:20:25--> 00:20:27

were also unjustly slain.

00:20:30--> 00:20:32

Like his uncle Hamza rhodiola, who

00:20:35--> 00:20:38

not only was he killed, but his body was mutilated.

00:20:40--> 00:20:50

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, upon seeing his body, the body of Hamza, he said, Never will I be afflicted

00:20:52--> 00:20:58

after this day, as I have been afflicted by your deaths, and yet,

00:20:59--> 00:21:07

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never took any of these days, as days

00:21:08--> 00:21:33

of sorrow or grief, or as a memoriam let alone do the crazy things that I do. On this day. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to guide us. We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to keep us firm upon his Deen and upon the Sunnah of His Beloved Prophet, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:21:34--> 00:21:53
