Rihanna Rahim. Allah Allah Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam on I shall be able mousseline. Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Holly while he was Abu Salim the stream and Kathy rangatira my Babu. My dear brothers and sisters we are on our lesson
on the lives of the mbls salaam and we are looking at the stories of Musa alayhis salam which Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Quran,
I remind myself I knew that of what Russell's reserve told us. And he said that Allah subhanaw taala
mentioned the stories of Bani Israel moosari salam so many times because that was the oma immediately before us. And we are the oma after them. And to the extent rustlers, as salam said that he said that if
he said you will follow the bunnies rail.
To the extent that if they went down a hole, you will go down the same hole. Again, remember that this is a statement that is not a statement of Java, as well as an asylum is not saying that you have no option, that you will definitely do this, that you have no control over this that you have, you are compelled
by destiny. No, he is warning us. He is warning us in saying that if
you don't watch and if you don't correct yourselves, then you will make the same mistakes that the money Israel made. And also as as Adam said, that every oma has a test. And the test of my oma is width. So Allah
I mean, I don't need any evidence about the truthfulness of also relies on a seller.
To me, that is
abundantly clear. But if anybody needed that evidence, then you just have to read and listen to the Hadees of Rasul Allah so solemn. And you know that these are things that
he was divinely inspired
to tell us and to warn us about. Because if we look at the world today, truly our biggest test, our biggest calamity, if I may say so is the wealth that this number has been. Now, I don't even know whether I should say the word blessed, but it comes on us we have done so is blessed, that has been blessed with
how all our problems begin and end with the fact that we have this wealth.
If if we didn't have this wealth, then many,
if not all, of our ailments and our illnesses, our spiritual illnesses, the illnesses of our character, the
the kind of things that have not just contributed to our decline as a people but have accelerated that decline
would not have happened because we just would not have be, we wouldn't have had the wealth, to be able to afford to, do indulge in the kind of excesses and in the kind of disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala, that we not only do what, which has become a norm with us, and we race with each other and we compete with each other, in trying to disobey Allah subhanho data, more and more spectacularly.
And all of this is a result
of our wealth. If we didn't have the wealth, we would not be able to do these things. Just look at our ostentatious weddings, look at the fact that we indulge in, in gambling and you know, I don't want to make a litany of the long list of all the ways in which we disobey Allah subhanaw taala I think this is more than clear to anyone at all who has the eyes to see
and the heart to understand, ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to be among those who
who learn from this and who then train ourselves not to fall into those traps Believe me the traps are both personal as well as, as a community as a nation. These are things which are not
restricted to a particular group of people, a group of Muslims. We have reflections of this across the world in our
community in our Muslim oma irrespective of where we are
with a difference only in scale,
somebody spends a million wastefully because he has a million somebody else spends 1000, because he has only that 1000. But if you compare the
wealth and the percentage of that,
that the person spent on something useless and ostentatious, sometimes the person who has less actually spends a higher percentage of what little he has on something that is useless, and it's only to show off and if Allah does not protect him, it might become something that is countered a ship.
So it is something that we need to warn ourselves and keep ourselves on track. So the stories of Bani Israel have come in and massage Rama have come in 28 out of the 30 Jews
observed the Koran and therefore it's a very, very important story, very important history.
For us to learn from
once again I last ran over the purpose of the Quran is for us to learn lessons, the purposes of Quran is not to become a book of history. And so, obviously, every detail is not mentioned. It is not mentioned in any kind of chronological order and so forth and that is not required because if you are teaching something for the sake of learning from it, then the individual incidents are important, where the chronology is important this has been indicated But otherwise, starting from
a particular point and going in order, in chronological order to another point is not always necessary. And so the Quran has not done that.
So we saw moosari salaams incident and we are looking as I told you earlier that the story of Musa alayhis salam can be
into two sort of rough,
two rough parts. One is Musa alayhis, salam, and round, and the other one is moosari, salaam and bunnies, right. So here we are looking at moosari Solomon, Verona, and that we looked at right from the time was it Sam was born, how Allah subhanho wa Taala protected him from the minute he was born, and how Allah subhana wa Taala helped him and his family. And then we see how was it Salaam grew up, we see the incident where
in his prime of his youth,
he tries to help one of
one of the people of money Israel. And accidentally this ends up in killing an Egyptian guy, which makes Musashi Salaam into a fugitive. And he's now
trying to escape from the retaliation of fear out.
And he ends up in Medea
in the home of srivalli, salaam, wa ala. And Allah knows best. Allah didn't mention the name Shri when he said I mean the Quran, but it was also observed. And from the Hadees, we have this and the scholars have said that this person was sure every Sarah, who married was a salam to one of his daughters. And musala is around spent 10 years with him
herding sheep, he was a shepherd of sheep.
I also mentioned to you in the last class, also the lessons that leadership lessons from
the herding of sheep. And therefore interestingly, this is something that Allah subhanho data, decreed for and got several, if not many of his ambia to do,
including you, Sally, Sarah, and Russell relies on ally seller. Both of them were shepherds of sheep in their childhood and us because this activity itself is a tremendously
powerful educational activity, which teaches some very important lessons of leadership. Today we look at the story going on from there.
And that is that Musa Salam had moved away from his family and his
people for 10 years and that's a long time. And so he was homesick and he decided to
return once his 10 year period was over, he decided to return to Egypt and to meet his mother and his family, and he took his wife along with him.
And they were, they were traveling. Now, on the way and again, remember this is all
Allah subhanaw taala for everything is by the will of Allah subhanaw taala there's Mussolini salamu anybody, there's nothing that happens without the will of Allah. But especially in the case of the unbelievers, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala guides them and trains them and educates them. And so all of this which we are, which we have spoken and which we are going to talk about, is Allah Serrano dollars education of musala his
allies training him to become an OB, Allah straining him to face
one of the most powerful
one of the most powerful kingdoms that ever existed the kingdom of Egypt, the monarchy of the upper and lower Nile, one of the wealthiest kingdoms that the world has ever seen.
their wealth was legendary, the strength was legendary. So I lost ranters preparing Sally Sarah,
to face that, and not to be overawed by this temporal material wealth and power and, and authority and to continue to keep his link with Allah subhanho wa Taala alive.
So on this on their way to Egypt,
Moses is 1170 they got lost, and it got dark so it was a very cold and dark night and it was very difficult so they stopped in sample in a place and imagine I'm sorry, Salamis. You know, he's the only one there his wife and I don't know if who else was that? But so it's it's a strange it's a it's a it's a circumstance and it's a time that is fraught with potential danger maybe even lethal. And at that time, I'm sorry, sir. I'm just trying to figure out where he is to orient himself and he sees a light in the distance.
Now this could be anything it could be house, it could be, you know, maybe some shepherds camping in the bush. It could also be something which is hostile you know, for example, it could be an army Battalion, for example, might be Egyptian army patrol or something. And they are they are camped there and if musallam lands there next thing you know, he's got, they go to capture it. We don't know when either. He just sees the light. So now last rites, Allah tells us
where it is. We live in a shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim is Ron Paul Alia Hello him Cujo in stone Ah, I Li D amin Have you called us in our Zhu Li de Huda.
He says to his family when he saw the fire. He said wait very I have seen a fire. Perhaps I can bring you some fire from their burning brand. So we can we can light our own fire. Not at least find some guidance. The people who are there whoever it is, maybe they know the way so they can maybe they
call me they can tell me where to go. But of course I learned that it has something else in store for him. For them
anodea Moosa in neon Arab mukava la la in kaabil.
To one after took our first time here I Lima
in nanny and Allah in any analog
moodini vibhuti Joaquim is sobre la Zicree Allah subhanaw taala said and when he came to the via, he was called by name yeah Musa Oh Musa. Very I am your rub. So take off your shows. You are in the Sacred Valley called tour.
And I have chosen you so listen to that, which is Inspire to
verily I am Allah in nany and Allah Allah Allah
Farah Buddha nee
Give me solid and the degree, verily I am Allah La ilaha illa Allah none has the right to be worshipped, but I, so worship Me, and establish a Salah for my remembrance
for my members, now, see these ads,
how beautifully alas vantara describes this.
Imagine the situation Musashi Salaam goes there. And if I find there is a fire burning, there's nobody there, no sign of any human being no sign of any habitation, they justify that. And then he is called your voice yamasa now, just put yourself in that situation, if that happens to you, if it happens to me, I will probably just have a heart attack and die, you know, just out of sheer terror. But Allah subhanaw taala supports, and Allah mantra strengthens the hearts of those he
wishes to use and support and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to use us and to support us and to make our lives worthwhile do means just living and breathing and eating and drinking and dying of cows and buffaloes do this is not for this is not for human beings, human beings must do something which is worthwhile, which is contributing something which leaves behind memories of, of beauty memories of benefit. You know, we this is the that's the whole purpose of human life. So Mussolini's Alam, comes, He is the father, he has his voice. Yeah. And then last we have is Digi, let's see, let's see the 13th of this thing.
See all those Rotella teachers, you know who we want to teach, where is being taught the other day of learning. Now, already is so important to
to remember that, because made as we think, you know, just because a book comes out reading something, and we think that this is all that is required. But no, it is something far more than that. So Allah subhanho wa Taala here is teaching him the love of learning. And he says, verily, I am your rubbish. So take off your shoes, you are in the Sacred Valley of tois. So, this is the other begins with others, it begins with a respectful attitude, to take your shoes off is a sign of respect. That is true in our culture, the norm even though we are permitted to pray with our shoes on if we are in a place which is where the ground is clean, and we are not inside a machine or
something, but still to take the shoes off is a sign of respect.
I suppose that is what I was being taught, although now it is not universities using the outdoors to take off your shoes. And this is you're in a sacred place. And then Allah Mandela says, Now I have chosen you. So listen to that which has inspired you meaning that whatever comes into your heart, whatever way in which he comes to you, the revelation comes to you, then listen to that meaning obey that follow that
listening is not here, unless of listening meaning, obedience is a difference between hearing and listening, hearing his sound and the sound, you know, motorcycle going by I hear the sound, but listening is where you are doing that consciously
with a intention to understand it, and an intention shall also to obey it and an undo likewise, what ever is being told you and this is the second lesson one is that we approach knowledge with respect with other in every way and removing your shoes is a is literal as well as figurative meaning that we approach knowledge in a way which demonstrates respect Malika angelelli of course, this is this kind of behavior is true for all of our great scholars and sort of Asahi.
But by Monica Angela is very famous for this, when when he would give those of Hades
he would It is said that he would make Mosul and not because he was in need for it, but just out of respect, he will may have also he will pray two rakaat of Salah he would ask dua to Allah subhanaw taala and then he would come and he would sit for the depths of this issue which he will be giving. Obviously, you will be addressed in a way which is with demonstrates his respect for us organizers and for the for the beautiful and blessed word of wrestlers. And
there's a famous story where Malika Malala was given the dose of Hades
and suddenly people saw that his face became white.
All the blood drained from his
First, it looked as if he was in severe pain.
But even the students had been so coached and schooled in other that they did not interrupt him to ask if anything was wrong, and he continued to speak, he continued to get worse until that's finished. And then even Mali collapsed. Now way they rushed to him and they checked the you know, lifted up his shirt or something to see what was happening and they found a scorpion had got inside his shirt, and the scorpion had bitten him had stung him. You know, Allah, Allah, maybe 30 something times, and it was the poison of the scorpion, it was a intense pain of the sting of the scorpion that resulted in edema, Malik, you know, losing, having that complexion and in the expression of the
signs of intense pain on his face, but still, he did not interrupt the doctors or hobbies, he didn't stop that he didn't, you know, I mean, remember if this happens to you, please don't don't try to be brave It is okay. It is okay. There's no problem with interrupting even your Salah
there's nothing more sacred than Salah. So whether you're reading Quran with your reading Hadees or whether you're praying if there is a danger of physical danger, insect or you know, a snake or whatever the fire if there is a gas leak, whatever might be the nature of the danger, you are permitted and you are it's it's literally incumbent upon you to interrupt what you are doing. And take care of that danger, put your amino make things safe, and then you continue what you're doing. So this is there's, I'm not proud, I'm not promoting this as a behavior. I'm just saying to you that this is the level of the respect that the scholars had for knowledge, right. So in my mind is
behavior hamdulillah We ask Allah to reward him immensely for that that was his own is the heart It was his own behavior. He decided to do that he was not promoting it. For others. I'm not promoting it for others, but I'm definitely pointing to it as a beautiful example of the other that our sulfasalazine had. And this is something that for us to think about today, we come to classes, operand and so on. And you know, we as we are sitting there with a eating food and
without any apparent sign of respect, in our appearance, and many people sit there and they have their feet extended
towards the Qibla or towards the teacher
towards the including the teacher sitting there with the most of and you have your feet extended there with your feet pointing towards the most half and towards the teacher. How disrespectful and how ugly is that man, but we live in times and places where even the teacher feels stuck. I'll have to throw you out of the class for anyone throw you out. Okay, maybe you shouldn't reach out anyway. But even will tell you so please, you know, don't sit like this. Sit respectfully. teachers feel inhibited, they feel that they will, you know, we are all thinking at least the person came to the class at least let them get something good from this. So let me not drive them away. I don't know
whether this is a good thing we are doing or not Allah knows best will Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah told busara mediclaim Take off your shoes, right? Allah didn't feel Allah did not exercise any hikma in that, this is the law, this is the rule this is this is what will benefit you. So take off your shoes. Imagine now this is one of the lessons we learned from COVID. Today we say wear a mask. Right? If you do not wear a mask, we are going to prevent you from coming inside the masjid.
And if somebody wants to use a dolly there and say, Well, you know you are preventing a man from worship, you're preventing a man from coming to the house of God I'm saying sorry, this is not that. That is not the case. We are not preventing the person from coming into the house of Allah. We are teaching the person the other the way to come into the house of Allah today, given the pandemic so that the person is not a danger to himself and to others.
Okay to the other. Now, why are other important and that's why I tell people if you can sit on the floor. Now again sitting on the floor is part of other right? But if you can sit on the floor with your knees bent, as in the case of the shareholder folded like this or whatever, and sit on a chair there's no problem but please do not sit with your feet extended towards the Qibla your feet extended towards the towards the Quran, your feet extended towards the teacher, the hottie of the Imam. This is very disrespectful, please do not do that.
It is not a respect for the individual. He said respect for the column of Allah. It is a respect for the message of the Quran and the message of the Hadees or pseudo Salaam. Please take a chair, sit on a chair, be comfortable, but be respectful. And this is what the lesson first of all Musashi Salaam is addressed by name. great honor for him, that Allah subhanaw taala called him by name. And then he's being given this instruction saying, take off your shoes, you are in the sacred valley of Guam. And Allah subhanaw taala says and I have chosen you, so listen to that which is sent to you and I as I mentioned, listen here is not hearing listen means to obey, to follow it to evaluate and then what
is the first revealed word that came to us and he said what is the first thing that as internal instructions, Allah, Allah said, in money and Allah Hola Hola. Hola Anna. Bodine welcoming Salah tele Vickery. Allah said very I am Allah, La Ilaha Illa Anna, there is no one worthy of worship except I so worship Me and establish Salah Hakim is Sara Lee Vickery
and to establish Allah for my members. This shows as the extreme importance of Salah it shows us that Salah is the thing which is the evidence and proof of our Eman.
A person or does not pray a person a Muslim or does not pray a Muslim who does not do Salah has no evidence of Eman.
If Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to forgive him He will forgive him if Allah does not want to forgive him. If Allah wants to
treat him according to the evidence then he is bankrupt he has no evidence.
This is not my fatwa. This is not my opinion. This is what Allah subhana wa Jalla Jalla mentioned in the Quran.
Where the people who are thrown into the Hellfire will be asked Allah Maria de comida de Carlo Baraka Jaya Ana de Vaca, Donna bacala salam and she in unto me lavida Ron COVID. They will be as people will be at the melodica angels will ask these people how come Why are you being thrown into the alpha? Did no one come to warn you they will say yes, of course Why not? They came to warn us but we denied and belied and denied and we rejected them.
In another place people with us the people of general will ask the people of john
they will ask how is it that you are going into Walmart Walmart Salah cocoon, Fie soccer? What is it that takes you and took you into the into the Hellfire into soccer?
And what will they say? Love nakumatt Mussolini
we were not among those who prayed.
My brothers and sisters
most important lesson we learned is the importance of Salah Salah is proof of our Eman.
Believe me if we live without salah and we die without salah and May Allah protect us because we are we have no evidence of him and that's the reason why rossano salam said I had to learn he by Nana verbena Houma Salah from an another half a cup Governor algoma canali salatu salam, he said that the I had the dividing line the differentiate the, the covenant, the word what separates us from the others, meaning people who are not Muslim is the Salah.
The one who has rejected it, the one who was lifted for but Allah, the One who does not do it, Doc Guevara, truly that person has committed, that person has denied Allah subhana wa
May Allah save us from being among those who deny Allah
Salah is absolutely critically important.
Pray, ensure that you pray, ensure that you never miss your Salah. Pray at the right time. As soon as salam said told us in a hurry so good see what Allah has said that
if my slave worships me
and praise the 500 Salawat which I have made for him
at the right time,
then it is my responsibility to forgive him and enter him into Jana.
And if you
He does not do that. Then this is not my responsibility, I may do it on my own I may not do it.
This is the mercy of Allah Allah. Allah did not say I will change my responsibility to put you in jail No no, unless Mandela does not say these things I lost Rotella mentioned this and as as a as a huge warning. So there is a Bashara. There is a there's good news there is comfort to say that if you pray on time in sha Allah, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive you and put you into Jannah but if you don't pray on time, if you delay or Salah boy lil mousseline, Allah you know manzara teams our lesson woe to those rejected are those cursed or those who do what? cursed or those who mousseline those who pray? Now cursed or those who pray? Why? Because those who delay there's Allah.
Allah The no one's allowed him zone, one Latino neuron and they pray to show people so they pray to show people they pray. Ria they show they'd want to show off
there's no sincerity in the Salah.
And Allah would Ward Allah does not need these leads Salah is for you. So make sure the Salah is prayed it is paid on time and it is prayed with sincerity and dedication and focus. You ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us that inshallah. That's the reason why I was also Solomon he was asked to describe your son
in algebra, you
know what it is?
On top of the Lucha con, I gotta find lambda Gandara in New York. He said to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, to pray as if you are seeing Allah Serato that
I know you cannot see him to know that he's seeing you.
You have this Iraq, to have this desire to have this awareness
that I am standing in the Presence of Allah geladeira
their allies seeing me allies listening to my recitation, Allah seeing what's in my heart. So I will do the best that I can do.
And the last rantala is the one to forgive mistakes. But I will not deliberately make a mistake, I will not do something which I know to be wrong. And this extends the soon as a reasonable way was to describe everything in terms of Salah in terms of prayer, because the prayer is the head of the matter. But the thing extends to everything else in life. So to worship Allah as if you can see him also means to deal with people as if Allah is seeing you knowing that Allah is seeing you, as if you're seeing Allah to worship Allah, as if you are seeing him. And to know that even though you don't see him he sees you to apply this principle in everything else in life as well not only in
So how do I deal with my customers? As if I'm seeing a lot of handle data standing there watching me do it? And even though I don't see a lot of answer, I know he's there and I know he's watching me do it.
Right? How do I deal with family? Same way?
How do I drive my car, same way.
Whatever it is,
I live my life.
Knowing that Allah Subhana Allah is watching me, Allah knows me. And as I keep saying all the time, this has two benefits. One is made it makes you cautious. So you avoid disobeying Allah and do it makes you confident, because Alhamdulillah whatever situation I'm in I'm not alone. While Mark wayna my quantum my rub is with me in the situation, and therefore he will help me because this is his
promise that he promised to help. So hamdulillah Mayra Allah subhanho wa Taala will help me
welcome Mr. Latta. Lizzy, establish Salah for my Vicar imagine. We pray, Allah forgive us, we'd complain of lack of concentration. In some, what is the curriculum remembers? What is that concentration forgetfulness, the two are two opposites.
The two are two opposites, oil and water, fire and water.
heat and cold,
hunger and being replete full of food,
thirst and drinking enough water to completely opposite things. What is it light and darkness? What is it about two opposite things? two opposite things. What about them is that two opposite things
cannot exist in the same place simultaneously.
What is the opposite of something that which cannot exist in the presence of this?
If I'm hungry, I cannot be replete with food simultaneously I can be hungry or I can be full of food.
If there is darkness there cannot be light simultaneously. When light comes, it dispels darkness that what is darkness darkness is the name given to the absence of light not to the presence of light. So, if there is a room which is dark, and you bring into it a single candle and you say is this room dark? No, it is not. Because now there is a candle. It is not dark anymore, because now there is a light even if it's small light, the presence of light removes and destroys darkness.
And that's why I was gonna say
Pooja and Haku was still in Alberta Illa Canada, Allah said the say the truth has come and fall to this has disappeared, it is the nature of falsity to disappear, the light has come and the darkness has disappeared. It is the nature of darkness to disappear.
two opposites cannot exist simultaneously in the same space. But guess what? We are such amazing creatures that we think that I am in the in the midst of my Salah, the purpose of which and I've been told to establish it
to establish a key masala
I have not been able to perform it.
performance, by definition is insincerity. Because I'm performing something that's not my reality.
It's a play I'm acting in a play
I mean it's one I mean some of these translations are you know the mistakes are so big and so ugly LaHood changes things. It is wrong translation kamati Salah is not performed Salah
it is established Sunnah, established Salah physically in the external space and establish Salah internally in the internal space called the heart
by which we mean the zeker of Allah establish salah
and this is the this is the beauty so a lot rather than saying a gimme salata for Lizzy curry for my Vicar, how do his face Allah, Allah was in the middle of Salah, which I established for y'all dicker. But my mind was somewhere else and I'm thinking of politics, and I'm thinking of the World Cup or I'm thinking of, you know, God knows what cricket scores.
Now I'm thinking of the politics in my organization.
I wrote this is really, really, really seriously. The purpose of learning is to apply it, it's only in the action that knowledge manifests its power.
So let us focus on the action.
And say that here is the story of Musa alayhis salam that Allah subhanaw taala caused us to study at hamdulillah
so what is it that I'm studying and learning from the story
so let's write it down. It says this establish Salah as you most I Salam went to get some light from the fire
and he came back with light for mankind.
He wanted guidance to Egypt. He came back with guidance for all mankind. Salah was prescribed for Musa a Salaam immediately after the heat and also as salam also got the Save
directly from those who have
now gone off salah
and this is the
hamdulillah the greatest lesson that we can learn as the
the Shire the word said kodachi then go musasa Pucci, Juan hotaki then gah musasa bootsy bhujia Juan
Get Aglianico j
number woodmill j
i think the second mister I'm misquoting, but the meaning of it is clear, which is the Word says ask musala salam, the generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala
he went to get fire in and then he got in the booth, he got profit.
rover, this is still when we seek knowledge when we seek knowledge to apply it.
That Allah subhanaw taala helps us and that's why as soon as Sam said that when the students for the students of knowledge for the students are well, those who who seek to gain knowledge who make effort to gain knowledge. Allah subhanaw taala causes the Malacca to spread their wings under their feet so they what they're working on the wings of Malacca, and everything in creation including the fish in the sea. Make dua for that student We ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us among such students. Was Allah Allah Allah will Coronavirus. He was a member of the garden Mohammed Salah Kumara hautala, who work at
