And welcome, again, to the best of stories from the Quran. Brothers and sisters in Islam. Today, we are so in need to reflect upon a story.

00:01:14--> 00:01:27

The story of very serene in the desert, wondering the story of Venezuela in losing their way.

00:01:28--> 00:01:32

They were commanded to go someplace.

00:01:33--> 00:01:46

And they received straightforward command from Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the tongue of His Messenger moosari his salam, yet

00:01:47--> 00:01:53

they disobeyed? Let's find out what happened to them brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:01:54--> 00:01:59

Because it is very similar to what happened to the Muslims now.

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

We have straightforward commands in our guidance.

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

But we said no.

00:02:08--> 00:02:11

And we lost the way like Venezuela yielded.

00:02:13--> 00:02:27

As I have shared with you before, brothers and sisters in Islam regarding this series, the best of stories from the Quran, that I do not follow a sequence of events. Nor am I reading history.

00:02:28--> 00:02:48

I'm trying to be midnight Allah with the help and support of Allah subhanho wa Taala to fulfill that command for consorcio Casasola Allah homeopathic karoun. So relate the stories to them or Mohammed, so that they may reflect.

00:02:49--> 00:03:11

So what I'm doing in this series of episodes is I'm trying to introduce one benefit two or three sometimes and then finding the story that fits that benefit that we want to explore in the Quran.

00:03:12--> 00:03:21

And today, the benefit that I feel the oma is so desperate for is finding out why we lost the way

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

Why are we declining?

00:03:26--> 00:03:35

1400 years ago, we were the best in earth, guiding humanity guiding mankind.

00:03:37--> 00:03:38

We were

00:03:39--> 00:04:23

basically what Allah subhana wa Taala described us to be the best oma Allah subhanho wa Taala said in the Quran, couldn't hire Roma cleaners. You were the best oma ever emerged for mankind. You enjoy what is good. You forbid what is evil, and you believe in Allah. We're not doing that anymore. Brothers and sisters in Islam. What happened? Let's innovate. Let's narrate the story of Venezuela and how they lost the way because it is very similar to us losing our way to

00:04:25--> 00:04:33

the story brothers and sisters in Islam begins when Allah subhana wa tada said in the Quran,

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

Allah Snell Coleman Medina Can you stop? Una Masha? Allah. Reba, Lottie Baraka what am Kelly Mathura beacon masala, Vanessa 11 masaharu What a modern American is now. como una can we audition? Indeed, we need those who were oppressed in earth, meaning

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

Israel inherit the east and the west.

00:05:04--> 00:05:15

And they receive the goodness from Allah subhanho wa Taala for being patient, and we destroyed the Pharaoh and his people and what they used to construct

00:05:16--> 00:05:27

immediately after the children of Israel passed the scene, miraculously, when the Pharaoh and his army followed them,

00:05:28--> 00:05:46

and they asked musala, Hassan, inanimate raccoon, we're gonna be killed. musala salam assured them, that Allah subhana wa Taala like he delivered you earlier, he will deliver you again from this one

00:05:47--> 00:06:16

00:06:17--> 00:06:22

Yet brothers and sisters in Islam as soon as they cross the scene

00:06:23--> 00:06:28

what was nervy Ronnie Is he

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

00:06:36--> 00:06:42

God, Moosa Jana Illa gamma whom

00:06:44--> 00:06:55

Allah, we just saved you from the Pharaoh and his army immediately, as soon as they cross the sea,

00:06:56--> 00:07:03

as soon as they cross that sea, and they will say they passed by some big one in the desert,

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

worshipping idols.

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

And they said, Oh Moosa, can you appoint for us an idol like there's

00:07:14--> 00:07:15

amazing,

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

amazing

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:07:21--> 00:07:26

They were the Muslims yet in spite of that.

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

corrupt the heat.

00:07:31--> 00:07:34

But they were the people who are saying La Ilaha Illa liner.

00:07:35--> 00:07:48

Yes, we're not strong as a number. Like when he is ready, we're, we're not strong in faith as an oma. But yet we are the best almost still in the face of this earth. Because we say la ilaha illAllah.

00:07:50--> 00:08:01

These are Muslim brothers and sisters in Islam. He is married with a lot one right before the sending of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:08:03--> 00:08:07

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Allah Hannah Viva la

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

fermata, whom Allah who madhyama whom? Allah subhana wa Taala looked into the people in earth, and he hated them he disliked them. Why brothers and sisters in Islam, because the word no la la la la

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

shook.

00:08:23--> 00:08:44

In LA back I am in Africa, the hudy accept some people who still stick to the teaching prophet a salesianum. So yet here is the level or the quality of the hate of Bani Israel in they just seen Allah the unseen, delivering them

00:08:45--> 00:08:50

in a day, by the way, that musala his Salam fasted this day.

00:08:52--> 00:08:55

And in this incident, actually is an evidence.

00:08:57--> 00:09:12

Something that I always said that stories from the Quran or of the Quran will help you understand that there were Muslims before us, but the people who followed the teachings of the prophets, not what they distorted.

00:09:13--> 00:09:36

The true followers of Musa were Muslims, the true followers of Isa Jesus are Muslims. The true followers of of Ibrahim are Muslims of no are Muslims, but the true followers, not what they distorted. Look at also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he migrated from Mecca to Medina and the halifa Invoker.

00:09:37--> 00:09:46

avi, Allah and Homer, he found that Jews there are fasting one day and he asked them, Why are you fasting this day?

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

The day of Ashura. They said, this is the day on which Allah subhanho wa Taala saved Moosa and his people from the Pharaoh and his people for sama who Musashi Crowley

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

Musa alayhis salam fasted this day in showing as a way of showing gratefulness to Allah subhanho wa Taala listen carefully to that statement, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, No no I will remove Salman whom what do you do I know aku Salman whom we have more of a claim to Moosa than them.

00:10:23--> 00:10:39

Why? Because we are following the teachings of Muslim by following the teachings of Mohammed we are following the teaching of Musa salam, O Allah, Allah him. We are following the true teachings of Asia by following the teachings of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:10:40--> 00:11:04

The shape of the important thing brothers and sisters in Islam, that yet benissa in the quality of the hate is not that perfect, but yet Allah subhanho wa Taala still deliver them. Of course, Prophet Musa alayhis salam was shocked by the request. And he started reminding them of the favors of Allah upon them

00:11:05--> 00:11:27

with an agenda coming around. Yeah Sudoku ellada. You that the owner of your party Luna Villa como esta UniSA Khun Wolfie Delhi Kumara Ravi Kumar, when, don't you remember that Allah says you from the Pharaoh and his people, they were slaying that your children,

00:11:28--> 00:11:54

taken advantage of your woman. And indeed this is a severe punishment for you, you will remember that. And then Prophet Musa alayhis salam, after reminding them with the bounties of Allah subhana wa, the fevers that Allah subhana wa Taala bestowed upon them. He's about to deliver them. The command from Allah subhanho wa Taala. For them

00:11:55--> 00:12:01

to proceed to a destination that Allah subhana wa Taala ordained for them.

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

A straight forward command.

00:12:06--> 00:12:09

This is the solution. This is what they're supposed to do.

00:12:10--> 00:12:58

a straightforward command from Allah subhanho wa Taala. What was the reaction? We'll find out. But I tell you something, the reaction was the reason for them to lose the way let's find out what was their reaction, how they responded to the command because in finding out how they responded to the command which resulted in them losing the way it's very similar to the conditions of the Allman Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Let's take a short break and come back in sha Allah to the best of stories from the Quran. Till then, as salam aleikum wa rahmatullah. There is only one God Illa.

virtues of Ramadan.

00:13:18--> 00:13:33

00:13:34--> 00:13:57

many

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

of them, they had the quality of feeling Allah subhana wa Tada. And when you feel Allah brothers and sisters in Islam, you feel nobody, even giants.

00:17:12--> 00:17:43

All my people enter the door, enter the gate of the town like Allah subhanaw taala commanded you to do. And once you enter, you're going to be successful, you're going to be victorious. Because victory is not through the means. Victory comes from Allah subhana wa Tada. And all you have to do is seek the means by entering the gate, but at the same time, your hearts must do tawakkol must trust Allah subhanaw taala if you truly believe

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

They still insisted and they said, We will never enter it as long as they are existing in the town. Go you and your load fight while we're here. Waiting for you.

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

Prophet Musa alayhis salam

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

They will be banned from entering this town for 40 years, and they will try to go there, but they will lose the way they will wander in the wilderness. They will be lost for 40 years brothers and sisters in Islam. What a story. What a story.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

A command from Allah.

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

to you.

00:20:02--> 00:20:06

If you do not, brothers and sisters in Islam, fulfill it,

00:20:07--> 00:20:29

you will lose your way. Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded you to worship Allah alone, the hate. If you do not do the hate, you will lose your way. Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded you to pray five times a day. If you don't, you will lose your way. Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded you to earn from Helen

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

and pay your soccer

00:20:33--> 00:20:49

and give you sadaqa if you don't, you will lose your way. Allah Subhana Allah commanded you to fast. If you don't, you will lose your way. Allah subhanaw taala commanded you to stay away from all the Haram committing adultery, drinking alcohol,

not wearing a hijab

00:20:54--> 00:20:58

cheating, this eating, eating usury River.

00:20:59--> 00:21:01

If you do, you will lose your way.

00:21:03--> 00:21:11

And the oma brothers and sisters in Islam. The followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lost the way

00:21:12--> 00:21:18

unfortunately, because you know what? We said no to a lot of commands.

00:21:19--> 00:21:23

A lot of Muslims now they do not even pray five times a day. That's why we're wondering.

00:21:25--> 00:21:30

Would like ministry going in circles, their own minds going in circles.

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

So handle Allah, imitating the non Muslims.

00:21:35--> 00:21:37

I just flown from

00:21:39--> 00:21:44

through Europe. And I saw Muslim youth showing their underwear.

00:21:45--> 00:21:46

Underwear

00:21:49--> 00:21:54

because I saw them in America that you there have shown their underwear. What is good in showing your underwear?

00:21:56--> 00:21:59

What is the quality of show? What What is the benefit of showing your underwear

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

in organohalogen says weak nations normally imitate strong nations. And that's what happened to the oma.

00:22:11--> 00:22:17

You know why? Because we're not seeking what gives us the glory, which is Islam.

00:22:19--> 00:22:23

I recall as the name of Allah had him

00:22:24--> 00:22:38

a nice aburi falu cetera narrated that conversation between Amara katavi Allah Juan and Avi oh by the terminal Java, when they were going to Jerusalem to receive the keys.

00:22:39--> 00:22:51

And our Aveda sosafe Namaha. Viola one, taken off his shoes, placing it under his left armpit and lifting his garment and walking in the mud.

00:22:52--> 00:22:56

He said yeah, I mean Oh, I mean, I mean, what they're gonna say about you.

00:22:59--> 00:23:03

If someone else would have said that, I would have done this and this and this to him.

00:23:05--> 00:23:07

We used to be humiliated

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

Guna Coleman Avila

00:23:12--> 00:23:23

Kunta Coleman Avila for us and a lot of Islam and we found dignity in our Islam fena Davina, is that a fee?

00:23:25--> 00:23:37

The oma right now they are seeking dignity in material, worldly resources. You will not beat the non Muslims in worldly resources.

00:23:38--> 00:23:45

as Muslims, I tell you that what you will offer to humanity is this Deen that you have

00:23:46--> 00:24:36

the only quality The only contribution that this oma can help humanity with at this time later on. We can offer like our video assessors did the offer them signs, we offer them algebra, they offer them all the information that they have. But first we have to offer them the model. We have to offer them the deed. We lost the way brothers and sisters in Islam. You know why? Because we disobeyed Allah subhanho wa Taala in so many commands. You know another thing, you know why? We're not finding our way back. Because a lot of us are sitting down like Venezuela is telling Moosa go You and your Lord fight and we are sitting down. A lot of Muslims are sitting down, not doing their jobs, not

00:24:36--> 00:24:41

fulfilling their responsibilities, and they are expecting the oma to come back.

00:24:43--> 00:24:47

Brothers and sisters in Islam, maybe I'm a little bit harsh.

00:24:48--> 00:24:51

But I love all of you for the sake of Allah.

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

And this is our oma, this is your own motto. This is the home of everybody. If you care about the Muslim

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

And if you care about Islam, do something. Learn your deen. Teach your children.

00:25:08--> 00:25:35

Teach them to love Allah. Teach them to love the messenger. Teach them to love the companions, teach them to love the predecessors, teach them to take the prophets, the messengers, the companions and the predecessors as role models. Teach them that this is the way to go. But above all, fulfill the commands, fulfill the commands,

00:25:36--> 00:25:38

whatever you're commanded to do, fulfill.

00:25:40--> 00:25:42

And I insha Allah the next episode

00:25:44--> 00:25:54

of The Best of stories, I will share with you another story that has to do with the fulfillment of the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:25:55--> 00:26:19

which will be the story of the cow. And something that is happened actually in the wilderness. Again, I want to remind my brothers and sisters in Islam, that I'm not following a sequence of events nor history, nor time. I'm trying to use these stories to affirm a benefit that we get out of it.

00:26:21--> 00:26:38

And hopefully inshallah, you have grasped, and they just did the benefit that I shared with you today, till the next episode of the midst of stories. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. There is only one God, the

00:26:41--> 00:26:50

Lord about the earthen sky who knows all the answers to why there is only one God.

00:26:54--> 00:27:06

I have seen the perfection of all creation and every creature in the and I don't understand any woman who denies the one
