hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam Roshan, filmbay Well, mousseline, mohammadu Rasulullah, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wa sallam 231, because he didn't kathira for mavado, my brothers and sisters
are hungry, love is my data. We continue with our story of Musa alayhis salam. And we're out. As I mentioned you this is one of the most beautiful stories of the Quran. And like all the stories of the Quran,
the story also is full of lessons for the one who listens to it with attention and reflects on it.
The purpose of all the stories of the Quran, needless to say, is not entertainment. No Quran is not a book of history, even though the stories are historically correct, and historically valid and relevant. But the Quran is not a book of history. The Quran is not a book of stories. The Quran is a book of heyday, a book of guidance, and therefore, it must be approached with that intention. And with that concept in mind.
I have mentioned this story before, also what I will, I want to start from there, because it's logically where it starts moosari Sarah spent 10 years in Medea. And then he missed his family very much. He hadn't seen any of them for 10 years and tried to put yourself in his place.
Where you are not looking at a world today where people are away from their homes and their families. Some of them say Oh, but you know, I missed them. And I will miss them. All right. But the point is that today, thanks to mobile communication, thanks to all kinds of chat programs, thanks to video conferencing, and so on and so forth, all of which has become free.
Amazing that we that we even saw this in our own lifetimes, it became free. And today, you can not just talk to people, but you can see them, and you can have live
conversations with them. We can have classes like we are having here we are live. The issue is that
as an aside, I would ask myself, that even though I have access to this technology, even though all of us have access to me, anyone with a smartphone has access to this technology? How many people and how many of our friends and how many of our relatives, our parents, our families? Do we really talk to think about that. It's a matter of, you know, people like to complain about not having this or that. But my I always say that you have now access to technology. When was the last time you spoke to your uncle or your art. When was the last time we spoke to your parents. When was the last time you spoke to some some dear and good friend of yours, even though speaking to them is free. You
don't even have to pay for it right? As long as as long as you have a Wi Fi connection. You can dial in and you can talk to them. How many of us do that?
Anyway, to return to Moser is a love story. He didn't have access to all of those things. So he hadn't seen his his family. He hadn't seen his mother for 10 years. And obviously he was and remember his mother and his family and so on. We're living in a language was intensely hostile. So Musab didn't even know whether they were even alive or dead or something happened to them. So he was very keen and very anxious to go and meet them. And so he started off, and he took his family with him.
And as they were going in the night, they got lost. And so in the desert, they are traveling,
you know, just a couple of people. And they were lost, and Mousavi tried to sort of look around orient himself. He saw a fire in the distance. And so he's said to his family,
wait here, I will I see a fire and maybe I can bring some
guidance from there. Obviously, if there's a fire there's likely to be somebody there. So maybe I can ask them for directions or at least I can get some fire from the fire burning brand. So we can start our own fire must have been cold in the desert obviously. So Allah subhanaw taala mentioned he said these are the ayat of Surah Taha, where a lot rather than a Zed is
in the anus to narrow the alley article. minha acaba sin o RG do
when he saw a fire, he said to his family, wait, well, I've seen a fire perhaps I can bring you some burning brand from there or find some guidance at the fire. So he went, he proceeded.
And then when he came to the fire, and this is where it all begins, the entire story begins with that, when it came to the fire of Allah udia Moosa in the book Valhalla anally in naka bhilwara del Mercado, Sita were anistar tugu first alima you ha in Nani and Allah Allah
for our moodini wa kimi Sala tele Vickery, Allah Subhana, Allah said, and when he came to the fire when he came to it, he was called by name or Moosa yamasa. Then verily, I am your rub. So take off your shoes, you are in the sacred valley of Guam, and I have chosen you. So listen to that which is inspired to you.
And then Allah as I said, verily, I'm Allah, La Ilaha Illa Anna, nobody has the right to be worshipped except myself. So worship me. We're acutely salata decree and establish a Salah for my remembrance. Imagine put yourself in that, in that situation to Allah, Allah subhanaw taala gives these experiences to his boys and we are able to set up and to whom to whomsoever Allah gives such an experience Allah, Allah also supports them and helps them because imagine you in the desert in the night you come there you will find there is a fire and then there is somebody calling you by name. I mean, I think if I was in that place, I would have had a heart attack and died right there
out of sheer terror. But Allah subhanaw taala supports so Moosa is
this is the story that happened to him. So he was told, he was called by name and then Allah subhanaw taala introduced himself, he said, I am Europe's will take off your shoes. And this is a sacred place this value of tois so he's being darts the first and foremost lesson in dialogue with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And in acquiring of knowledge, which is the rational other, without other there is no
knowledge there is no learning, there is no higher there is no Baraka. Respect comes before everything, and anything in this world. And that's, that's a very, very important lesson to
learn. And as a sign of
our Messiah, Sarah is told to take off his shoes. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says to him, I have chosen you. So you allow give giving is giving him an award. And Allah says and therefore, when a message is sent to you, meaning for the way, listen to what is inspired to you, and then the first, as soon as he is chosen as the NaVi. The first lesson that he is given the first problem that he is given is to establish Salah in dunya and Allah Allah Allah Hi, Anna Bodine Aki salata decree, Allah said Verily I am Allah, there is no one worthy of worship except me. So this is Dori and the proof of sorry, the evidence that we believe is what is to establish an alchemy Sara Lee Vickery
established Salah for my thicker, as the Shire said,
for darky then gah musasa Buchi
are learning for Jai Jai. He said, Ask musala Salah about the generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He went to get fire, and he got an award instead to moosari salam went to get light from the fire, and instead he got light for all of mankind. He wanted guidance to Egypt, and he came back with guidance for all of mankind. And Salah was prescribed for moosari Salah after tawheed. And also realized, in the same way, was given Salah after tawheed after
being given the word with the difference that for a loss of habitat I called him up to the
help to himself to give him this hope of Salah. But of course, the prayer itself.
The five prayers were made for the in insogna right, but the prayer itself, resource Asana was given the hokum immediately after he started getting here because the
sort of Muzammil is one of the first surahs to be revealed in which in which there is a home for the prayer which we know today is the huddle and then Allah subhanho data drain who's Ali Salaam
To change his focus from the as verb of the dunya to our Quran, Allah Subhana Allah. So Allah is regarded as training of Musa alayhis salam he says he bootiful this whole story is Masha Allah.
Allah subhana wa sallam said, I will not till Kabhi aminika yamasa Allah here as I go Allah,
Allah Ivana me Wailea v hamari boo. So, Musa said I was being asked what is in your right hand almost and I think about this Allah knows what is in the right and well is what I see, the idea of asking some questions is not because the question or needs to know or wants to know, but the question is asked in order to draw the attention of the individual himself on what he has, right. So, it is this is these are these are sort of rhetorical questions, which the purpose of which is to draw the attention of the person to himself to some quality of his to So, his action
and so on and so forth circumstances. So, in this case, Allah is asking what is in your right hand, so, now, whose attention is on what is in his right and what was in his right hand, he had his stuff, you know, the shepherd stuff,
usually it has a sort of a hook at the end, crook from which with which to pull down branches and leaves from trees and so on. So, this is stuff, if you look at this stuff, this stuff is something which is very important for the, for the shepherd, because it is something that So,
this is my by staff by stick, and I lean on this, and I beat down branches over sheep, and I have other uses of this stick. So logistic is something which is very beneficial and useful for masala Sarah, and that is what he's talking about. And this is what he's saying, Allah,
Allah, this is the stick I have and district has many uses for me.
And then others rather assess to him.
Karla yamasa so it was said to him, Allah does it cast it down, throw down your stick, yamasa Baraka paisa, here, here,
he goes to down and behold, it became a fast moving snake, a big snake, fast moving, and it's a poisonous snake. And this is in some other place, it comes about the nature of the snake. Now here, it just says a snake moving fast. Allah Azza wa sunwarrior, Sera, Sera Tallulah, Allah doesn't grasp it, pick it up, don't fear, we will return it to its former situation, former former state. So here,
if you look at it, what is the lesson the lesson here that Hussein is alive is being taught is here you have this thing, which you are familiar with, which you find useful, which you like, which is beneficial for you, and so on and so forth. So when you are thinking about this thing, you have all these, all these add these expectations associated with that thing to say here is buy a stick and the stick is beneficial to me. And I need this stick in my life. Right? I think about this in terms of your own life. We don't have sticks, but we have jobs, and we have shops, and we have businesses and so on and so forth, all of which are in the nature of districts. So these are beneficial for us.
We rely on them, we design our means of income and so on and so on. Then suddenly, what happens to the stick the moment he throws it on the ground historic, he is ordered, throw it on the ground moment, he throws it on the ground, this thing which was beneficial suddenly becomes harmful. So it is not only that the benefit is canceled. It's not only that it gets neutralized, but actually it becomes harmful. Here is a snake I mean the snake bites me I die. And it's not a small thing. It's a big snake. It's a fast moving snake. So it is something which is highly dangerous to me. So from one end of the spectrum to the other, right? And then what is the last router let's
pick it up. And when Moses musallam picks it up, the snake doesn't bite him when he picks it up. When he picks it up. Now it turns back into the stick. So the lesson being taught here is that Lana vay, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, there is nothing beneficial and there is nothing harmful, except that which Allah subhanaw taala makes beneficial or harmful, right? There's no benefit or harm, except in the hobo.
So the thing by itself, the message that is being given here, and this is such a critical and important message for us, especially today
The term especially today can be applied to this dead band in at any time. 10,000 years from now, if somebody is speaking, and if this world continues, they can safely make the statement and it will be equally valid as it is today, which is that no benefit, and no harm comes from anyone except Allah.
Today we are living in a world of this COVID pandemic, and we sometimes feel fearful, what will happen, will I get infected? Is that no.
The point here is Allah subhanaw taala. Think about this. Now, some of you might say, Well, you know, I won't get COVID as long as I read the Koran, I will not get COVID if I'm going to the masjid. I don't need to wear a mask. I don't need to need to get vaccinated. No, think about this. Here. It was Allah Sarah, Allah subhanaw taala wants to drive home this message, that the reliance must be on Allah subhanho wa Taala not on your stick, meaning the reliance must not be on material things reliance will be our last partner. But in that message did a lot of our data shader busara Now that you understand this, throw away the stick you don't need the stick. Now did Allah says no.
Continuing to continue to use the stick so now and muzzle Islam is going out from here and he feels tired? What is he leaning on? he's leaning on his stick,
the stick is still there in his head. Allah did not tell him draw with a stick no change in the mind change in the heart from reliance on material to reliance on the creator of the basic material from
tawakkol allow us to talk or Allah.
Musab dual aspect because
worship this is ship to have the Oracle and to have reliance on the ASVAB on material things it shook. So we change our reliance from material things to the Creator of all things which is Allah subhana wa Tada. But do we still use the material? Of course, Allah subhanaw taala created the material for us to use it. So therefore in this COVID thing, do you take a vaccine? Yes, you take a vaccine you were asked Yes, you add a mask? Do you wash your hands and sanitize? Yes, of course you do that, do do that, because this will save you from COVID No, you will do that because this is the these are this is these are the means that our last handout that I gave us and Allah allowed us and
Allah told us to use them, but who will save us from COVID Allah subhanaw taala.
So the thing to understand and this is the whole issue, the thing to understand is we are not being taught in Islam to discard material to discard means no, we are taught to use means as means, we are taught to use means as means and not convert the means into something we rely on, because we are we are being taught this lesson to say reliance can only be on Allah subhanho that reliance cannot be on something material. And this is a lesson being taught to musala here the stick, it can because it can be go. Whether it is beneficial or it is harmful depends on what Allah subhanaw taala orders it to do. As I told you the whole purpose of these stories is not just to stick with the story is to
take it into our lives and reflect on it and say now therefore since I now know the story of Musa alayhis salaam and his stick
what am I going to do in my life
which will change my life which will ensure that my life now is free from all stress. My life is free from all tension. My life is free from all fears of all the macklow all fear of all the material means in this world.
And I fear only the displeasure of Allah.
I fear only that Allah subhanaw taala may not be pleased with me I'm focusing myself on this right this is what must happen so when we see this when we when we hear these stories, and then of course our last game was Ali Salaam, some other signs and he said what Mombasa Kyla Jana Hakata followed by da Min Soo In and Ohara Li Noriega mean I Tina Kumara either Ella for our in hotaka Carla and this is Rosalie Salah now responding. Cora visually saw that he was really angry were Hello of the melissani you have Coco Lee. And Allah says trim and press your right hand to your left side. It will come for the right hand or left side. It will come for white and shining without any disease as
Another sign that we must show you some of our greatest signs go to around. Verily he has transgressed all bounds in disbelief and in tyranny and muscle, his arms. This is again a huge lesson for us to learn right moment is given this job What is he saying? He says, Oh Allah make me capable of the job so musala ceram says Amara open for me my just rubbish Lee Saudi expand my chest grant me competence give me knowledge give me contentment, give me boldness and ease my task for Mia Sera, he is a really angry, and he is my task for me. Well, hello, Sam melissani nan make lose the knot from my tongue is talking about he had a speech impairment he says or like your speech
impairment. But this also means Give me the words, give me the words you don't necessarily need a speech impairment to be able to do to lock up your tongue, a tongue get locked up all kinds of reasons, including tension and coding stress. So he's saying, oh, Allah, free me from this. Give me the words to speak. You have Coco Lee so that they understand my speech, give me the words, to reach the hearts and minds of people. Now Moser is
made is wonderful. And think about that that Musa Salam did not reject the mission was as an upset No, no, no yellow. Anyway, look at this man. He is he's after my life read, there's a death sentence on me. If I go to him, he will kill me. In another place. Moses said he has less protection from that. But in this case, when he's being given the job, he's not rejecting the mission. He's asking for help. And this is another huge lesson to learn, which is that when we are given the job and what is our job, in our case, the job that we are given is at an individual level to worship Allah subhanaw taala and to practice Islam in our lives, and at a collective level it is to present Islam
to the rest of the world. So we present Islam individually and we present Islam collect collectively to the world. And therefore when that job is given to us, what do we say? They don't say no, no, I'm sorry. I can't do it. No, we say Alhamdulillah. Allah give us the job. Now please make us capable of performing this job. to your satisfaction. The whole point of this is that the performing the job to
your satisfaction, and then is there Raja Ali was here Amina Ali Haruna as he or she do to be as ri what we're actually Koofi, I'm a guy no sub B hi caca Sierra, wanna Caracas era in Naga con Sabina basura. Call. Call the booty
call God Oh Tita. Paula rotita. So aloka yamasa.
hausa is an observer, please appoint for me a helper, I need a helper from my family, our own my brother increase my strength with him, meaning the relationship is strong. So make him my supporter. So it is my strength. And let him share my task, which is conveying of Allah subhanaw taala message and Prophethood so he says make him my companion and give him profit. So as I just said that nobody did a bigger favor to anybody else.
than what Musashi Salaam did for his brother. The Messiah is because of Musa alayhis salam. Because Musa al Salaam asked Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Subhana Allah gave him the word to Hiram Lisa. So say the ashes.
Our mother may Allah be pleased with that and grant her the highest station in Jana. He said that no one did a bigger favor. No person did a bigger favorite or another person than Messiah. They said I'm ready to hire only Salah. And then he said that we may glorify you a great deal. And remember you very much verily you are of us ever a well seer. And Allah said you are granted your request almost. So here was always that I'm making dua and this device accepted. He says given the award also one brother Allah says your brother answers and He will give him give him my brother tomato support oranges over the support. Well, let me imagine how beautiful is this?
How beautiful is this, that this this companionship and there is this friendship and there is this
support and there is this reliance on the two between the two brothers think about this and see also this the lesson in this order?
Also in terms of brotherhood also in terms of wishing the best for your brother, maybe your own brother, maybe your fellow Muslim, wishing good for each other, it is very, very important for us to understand that never wish evil anybody remember
that when a when a Muslim makes dua for his brother in his absence, the Malacca say and the same thing to you. So, be very careful when you make dua or when you wish something for somebody because the same thing is going to get wished for you by the Malacca. Now, unless it is a case where somebody has oppressed and somebody has committed a crime and somebody has harmed you, in which case of course you have the right to make dua against that person and inshallah that do I will not come back on to you. But other than that, two out of envy out of jealousy, all of these are very negative and horrible
things to have in our life, and therefore very important to cleanse and clear our lives, from these thoughts and from these things. And then Moosa is alive remember
that he had killed his van
before he left Egypt, and that there was actually a
warrant for his arrest. And there was a death sentence which had been passed in absentia, which, even when he was found on court, naturally, that sentence would be
would be carried out. So column A B in qatal, tumino nutzen. For arhavi. alone. We're akiho after hominy leizhan for RC Lu Maria ridin. You saw the pony in a half an hour because the war is a rovira. I have killed a man among them and I feel that they will kill me and my brother Harlow, he is more eloquent in speech than I am. So send him with me as a helper to confirm me. Verily I fear that they will be lie me they will deny me then Allah subhanaw taala comforted Mousavi Salah Kala son I should do Abu Dhabi
Allah comas all Todd and viola, Yossi Runa la Kuma, Biya, Tina and Omar Amanita Akuma Hollywood, Allah said, we will strengthen your arm to your brother and give you both power so that they shall not be able to have an hour I art our science and Revelation, you too as well as those who follow you will be the victors suara Allah, Allah said we will I will strengthen you with your brother and we I will give power to both of you and they will not be able to have you and with our if you do as well as those who follow you will be the victors meaning that if you
obey and if you follow the guidance that is given to inshallah you will win. Once again, what is the lesson? The lesson here is that we have the guidance of the Quran, we have the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala we have the guidance, which was given to us through and by Muhammad those were lies
and if we follow that, inshallah we will be the victors. inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala will protect us, inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant us victory in situations where we are oppressed and we are being harmed, but condition is that we follow the guidance that has been given to us, we follow what is in the Quran, we follow what is in the Sunnah of Rasulullah Isola not when we are going in the opposite direction, not when we are not when we spend our lives, disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala.
We're not when there is no difference between us and the other side between between us and those who disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala. Think about Musa and this is Elisa Lam Musashi Sullivan thought this is such a good example it is it illustrates the situation so graphically, if you think of Moses and Pharaoh was a drone, you're looking at two opposite things that is light it's like looking at Sun and darkness completely to totally opposite things. Now think about
us as Muslims and others as non Muslims. Is there that kind of a stark difference between us and them?
Or rarely is there no difference? We are like them we'd like we'd what they eat, we dress the way they dress, we have habits like they have habits. We are our society, and our culture is the same there is no there's
Difference is which one is it? Sure, okay, some of us we go and pray, but many of us don't even pray.
So, what is the differentiator Tell me,
here Allah has showing us different difference which is absolutely Stark and clear, right? chalk and cheese totally completely different.
Whereas, today in our lives, I hear that the point you have to understand here is that only when there is this difference, meaning that only when there is a difference which is based on and which is because of following the orders of Allah subhanho wa Taala is eligible.
Only when that happens only when that exists with the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala come,
the help of Allah Subhana Allah saying this Mullah saying, I will strengthen you with my ayat.
What is the source of sin? The Ayat of Allah, what are the Ayat of Allah the kalama the sun novels.
In our case, so if we want to string we have to return to Allah Subhana hotel.
We have to return to the obedience of Allah. Allah we have to return to the Quran we have to return to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, everyone says there is no mystery
there is no mystery. There is no magic. Right? We have to return to Allah.
Then Allah promise Victoria let's write this I will strengthen you and you will be victorious. You too as well as those who follow you will be the victors. So, here is the solution that is being given to the problem. The problem is that we are oppressed. The problem is that we
our rights are being denied. The problem is that we are facing all kinds of difficulties. The solution of a simple solution is return or loss or handle that return to Muhammad Rasul Allah Salallahu. Salam Sana to his ways, right? Now it's up to us. If we do it, then we will be strengthened and we will be protected by last minute. If we don't do it, then there is no such.
There's no such guarantee. I won't say Allah will not produce a lot
to do or not to do but I'm definitely I can say that there is no such guarantee of protection and health for those who are deliberately disobedient of Allah.
And there are laws that I gave the hokum is hava Illa, Allah in the hole tava
Bakula lo cola Lee in the eye level Kuru Sha, Allah said go both of you to ground. Verily he has transgressed all boundaries
and speak to him kindly and mildly and softly. Perhaps he may accept the guidance, the admonition or be or he may fear Allah.
two things here. One is Allah subhanaw taala.
is giving this audit was to say speak to him softly.
And then unless what that says, maybe he will be guided rope was Allah knows he's not going to be guided I love and this brother knows that's not gonna happen. But then why is he saying this to musasa? Because this is also part of the training of massage and I'm part of the training of now. But being soft does not mean that we do not speak the truth. Please understand this. Right? We were two kinds of people. We got people who speak the truth, but they speak it so harshly. And so, you know, really offensively that many times people's attention is distracted by the harshness. And the truth itself gets gets it falls through the gap. Right It did get left behind.
Obviously that is of no use. It is no good. Anybody. On the other hand, you have people who are so soft, that you don't you don't even know what they're saying. And they become so soft that they allow and they permit what what Allah has not permitted. And they become so soft that they their tongue gets tied up when it comes to talking about the consequences of disobedience of Allah Samaritan. And both of these extremes are undesirable. massagin ism is being taught to say, Well, I say speak the truth, but speak that softly and gently and nicely. I learned not to change it a lot.
Ha don't don't don't tell him the reality Don't tell him that if he does this he's going to burn the hell fire No, the truth is the truth. So, for example here if I tell you that you know eating halal and earning halal is absolutely critical for you, for the acceptance of your and by that acceptance of your worship and for the acceptance of your door, and if you do not do that, if you deliberately eat Allah haram or doubtful things, and if you fall into doing business
and and your transactions if they are Hara, right in many different ways, giving or taking a bribe, for example of stealing or you know, dealing in interest based banking and stuff, then you will attract the punishment of Hamas, we know that this has to be said, this has to be said there's no question of mincing any words about that. There's no question of pretending that this is not harmful. So this there is a balance to be understood here. Say what needs to be said. Fearing no one other than Allah.
Yeah, it was. My that was a Salam yahiro solo balumama on Zilla Lake for a lump of Al
Omar, one of Teresa, one law who asked him to come in and as I was writing, I said, Oh, my soul.
Sister clearly that go around go please state clearly what has been revealed on unto you.
And if you do not do that, then you would not have fulfilled the responsibility of prophethood. And Allah will save you from the people. Now, obviously this is these ayat is not as a source of cinemas, there was any doubt about his
his preaching or his teaching, that he would not do it. This is a guide gentle guidance. For anyone who is doing the work of doubt to say, speak the truth. Speak it clearly. Don't mince words, don't follow the issue. Be me Do not fear anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala. But do that gently and do that.
Softly don't do that in a harsh manner. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala
said not to the last round in Godot here. And
truly it has been revealed to us that the torment will be for him, who denies and turns away. So basically here what being said is that he proposal denies Allah subhanho wa Taala and denies that also, then this person will be punished. When Musa is Alam
went to Iran and spoke to him. inshallah, we'll talk about that. When we come to our next next class in sha Allah. I asked us for data to,
to be pleased with you and not be displeased ask us raw data to enable us to
live this life and to
and to, you know, help us to live this life in a way where he is pleased with us and not allow us to do anything which is displeasing to him because this is also part of the understanding of the deen that we ask Allah subhanaw taala for his help in order to obey Him because obedience on this monitor is critical. But we know that it will not happen without the help of Allah subhanaw taala so we ask Allah Subhana Allah to help us to obey.
Wasabi Karim Allah Allah He was named by Rama,
Rama Rama husana.
just like we know federal
