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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Shafi lumbee were mousseline Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Holly you Allah He was on he was alum doesn't even kathira Sierra Nevada, my brothers and sisters, I am here in Canada, Somers Connecticut. And

00:00:21--> 00:00:47

it's a wonderful day in a sense of the temperature. It's very nice and cool, not hot, although the summer's here tend to be a bit hot. But it's overcast. So from a lighting perspective, that is good. I'm only hoping that it doesn't start raining because it rained earlier this morning. And also, I hope the wind doesn't pick up and become noisy, otherwise, this video will get

00:00:48--> 00:00:56

badly affected. So make sure that all this doesn't happen. We are on the story of Iran and Musa alayhis salam.

00:00:58--> 00:01:00

And at the point where

00:01:01--> 00:01:26

the money is Rial blamed moose Ali Salam for the difficulties that they were being faced with. Because when around and his plans when he was defeated, when his authors instead of doing their sorcery, they did their sorcery, but as we know, it failed. And Mussolini was victorious. So they,

00:01:28--> 00:01:36

they fell ensued to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they accepted Islam unilaterally,

00:01:37--> 00:01:45

obviously, without seeking ferons permission and feeling as if we were given permission anyway. So if you don't got absolutely insane with anger,

00:01:47--> 00:01:51

and he ordered that the

00:01:52--> 00:02:01

children of the bunnies trial should be killed, the mat the male children, the boys and the girls should not be should be left. And

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

he said, because he said I have to show them that they have I have irresistible power over them. Now,

00:02:11--> 00:02:16

obviously, this was a this was a difficulty and on the face of it, it looked as if

00:02:18--> 00:02:22

this happened, because musala ceram came there and he challenged around

00:02:23--> 00:02:43

now is very interesting. So what the reason I do the one is right, then blamed Musashi, Saranda, you are the You are the cause of all this, because of you, these things are happening. But if you think about this, this is a very interesting, but a very painful and very unfortunate phenomena in life.

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

The

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

when people are enslaved,

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

when they are

00:02:56--> 00:03:00

when they are under pressure from oppressors.

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

Many times we wonder,

00:03:04--> 00:03:10

and we say, why is it that they don't rise up? Right? I mean, I don't have to point

00:03:11--> 00:03:25

take names and, and give you, you know, waste your time by telling you things, which all of you are well aware of, because you watch television, and I don't. And you

00:03:26--> 00:03:29

and I both get the news from other sources.

00:03:30--> 00:03:41

So we know what is happening in the world, and we know how people are being oppressed. And in this case, Muslims are being oppressed, in different countries, by dictators, and by

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

by all kinds of oppressive rulers.

00:03:48--> 00:04:10

And they do nothing, right, you just see them just suffering, not making any effort to free themselves not making any effort to do something about this and say, Well, you know, we can't just sit here and get slaughtered regardless, can sit here and be oppressed like this. And so on and so forth, we find that they do almost nothing.

00:04:11--> 00:04:18

So sometimes you might feel and you might say, Well, why don't they do something? Here are a bunch of people. And in terms of numbers,

00:04:19--> 00:04:42

we are humans, we are far more than what the bunnies ride. We're in the time of musala salamin in Egypt. So we say well, you know, those uses numbers, number of people. So why don't they do something to better themselves and to free themselves and to cast aside his burden which is, which they are, which is on their necks.

00:04:43--> 00:04:58

And the reality is that not only do they not do something to free themselves, but you will find if you read the history of people and most recent history, you will not be able to read it because it's not a norm but you can see it happening.

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

in different places, you will feel that you will see that if somebody stands up from among the people, if somebody stands up

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

as a focal point of

00:05:11--> 00:05:22

a potential change, then that person faces the maximum criticism and the maximum opposition from his own people

00:05:24--> 00:05:32

maximum and to the extent that many times that his own people or her own people will

00:05:34--> 00:05:37

cause harm to that person will,

00:05:38--> 00:06:24

where that may be relevant, they are the people who will carry the information to the agents of the oppressor to say that this person is speaking against you, and so on and so forth. And they make sure that that person fails, or that person is removed from their lives in one form or the other. Now, you might say, Well, you know, what kind of a thing is, is you don't even arise, you don't rise up to save yourselves and when somebody is from among you is rising up and is leading and is trying to bring about change, what should happen is that you should help them what should happen is that people should get Get, get around, get together behind this person, and give this person momentum

00:06:24--> 00:06:29

and enable this person to bring about change, but the opposite happens.

00:06:30--> 00:06:57

Instead of enabling that person to bring about change, the opposite happens and the same people for whom this person is fighting the good fight, turn against the person. And the reason for that is, is fear is their own internal, internal internalization of fear, their own internalization of a feeling of being inadequate, a feeling of being victims.

00:06:59--> 00:07:39

And they have come somehow convinced themselves that this is our condition, this is how we are this is how we will be, and nobody can change that. And this person, or this not necessarily a person, but this group or this, these people who are oppressing us, they are indeed, all powerful. They are indeed people who are potentially harmful to us, they can harm us and so on and so forth. Now, if you go and argue with them, and if you tell them look, you are Muslims, you are supposed to believe in Laila halal law, you're supposed to believe in La hawla wala quwata illa Billah you're supposed to believe that there is nobody who can harm or benefit other than Allah subhanaw taala so what

00:07:39--> 00:07:42

happened to all your belief and what happened to all your,

00:07:43--> 00:07:57

your aqeedah? What happened to this stock or Allah subhanho wa Taala? Which you were supposed to have? There is no answer. There is no answer. They continue to believe this. And they continue to

00:07:58--> 00:08:04

pull down the people who might arise from among them to bring about change.

00:08:06--> 00:08:54

And it's a tragic thing, because this is this This ensures that a time comes when the rulers when the oppressors really have to do nothing. They do not have to do anything they don't even need force, the slave, the enslaved people, the slavish people ensure that they remain slaves, they themselves ensure that no voice is raised or no action is taken against the oppression of the oppressor ever, that the oppressor is free to oppress, as long as he or she remains in power. Right? I'm sure that you can see examples of this happening in our world today as we speak, the people not only do not arise but the people ensure that anyone who

00:08:55--> 00:09:01

talks about freedom anyone who talks about dignity, anyone who talks about human rights

00:09:02--> 00:09:28

is cut down and put down right in one form or the other either is starved of resources and foreign so that he becomes effectively he becomes ineffective or some other thing which is worse. Now that is what they tried to do. That is one of the bunnies that I tried to do with musala Center. They tried to they started blaming him and they said you are the cause. Because of you. You know we are in trouble. Now see how

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

ridiculous that whole claim was? Because the bunnies were already in trouble. I mean, they were in worse than trouble. Iran was oppressing them, including this killing the sons and leaving the daughters was their state. This is what he was doing anyway. That is the reason why Musashi Salaam. We have this whole elaborate story of how Allah subhanaw taala saved Moses. He said he saved him to whom he saved him from Iran. He saved him from being killed because of being a boy

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

One in the people have been inside. So what changed what was new, yet

00:10:05--> 00:10:25

they tried to blame him, of course, at hamdulillah. In this particular case, they were not they were not able to kill Musashi ceram, they were not able to do worse to musala salam because Allah subhanaw taala had his plan. And Allah somehow brought his plan to come about and to, to an Allah mother ensured that his plan succeeds, right.

00:10:27--> 00:11:11

The as I'm talking to you, the sound of the wind, I have these Aspen's behind me. And it's amazing to see the leaves of the aspirin, which literally shiver like this in the in the breeze. And if you're looking at a tree, and when the breeze is passing, through a strand of Aspen's, you can actually see the breeze, so to speak, because the trees, if it's coming from the right to the left, you start seeing the leaves of the trees on the right, shaking like this all the way to the left, so you can see why there is a wind. And that's how the wind is going. Now one of the outcomes of this is that it's also noisy because the leaves, they touch each other. And so they have this beautiful

00:11:11--> 00:11:37

rustling, extremely lovely, relaxing sound. Which of course is absolutely wonderful if I was sleeping here, but since I'm recording this thing, it might be a bit of a disturbance. And I and I might have other been on my head. But anyway, let's see what what comes about, it's not in my power to stop the wind. Incidentally, on a side note, also said that among the

00:11:39--> 00:11:54

among the beautiful things in Ghana will be a breeze that will flow. And this breeze as it goes to the trees, the leaves will shake, and they will touch each other. And they will produce a musical

00:11:56--> 00:12:34

throne. And they will produce music, which will be absolutely incredibly beautiful. And awesome. And it was also prohibited us from listening to music in this world. And he said if you do that, then the issue should follow this and do not listen to music in this world. Now loss of 100 data will cause this music to be played for you. And this is the music of Jana. And so Holla Holla Holla how it is how it will be except we know that it will be beautiful. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant that we are among the people who will listen to that music, and the music will a beautiful person has to be there to listen to it. And that is what the whole struggle is about.

00:12:36--> 00:13:03

So the victim stance of which I was talking to you about which is very typical of the defeated and enslaved nations. They look for scapegoats. They look for scapegoats. And they look for someone to blame for their situation. They don't have the courage to look at themselves to own the problem to say look, this is our problem. We are the reason for it because Allah subhanho wa Taala is not unjust Allah is not.

00:13:05--> 00:13:21

Allah is Allah. Allah subhanaw taala is just unfair. And Allah Subhana Allah does not inflict problems on people until they do it themselves until they put themselves in a situation where they where they invite the problem

00:13:22--> 00:13:36

was Rhonda said Allah who lie over you maybe Coleman had you were you maybe unfussy him Allah will not change the good condition of a people until they change themselves. Now you might say why would anyone change

00:13:37--> 00:14:08

their own good condition? Well, this is what happens to human beings seems to be almost like a rule, where, when they have it all good, they don't seem to have any appreciation for it. And so people will do things which destroy their goodness, because of their excesses because of their operation, if Allah gives strength, and instead of using the strength to help others, we use it to oppress others, you know, there's this whole conversation going on, just now about

00:14:09--> 00:14:27

the future, the Wars of the future, which will be which will be for water instead of oil, and the other natural resources that people fight over. And the whole discussion is about this is this is how the war will be. And this is what one must do. And this is where how you can, you know, defend.

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

This is how you can defend yourself or you should defend yourself and so on so forth.

00:14:35--> 00:14:42

And the question I asked myself is, why is there not accommodation to say that since water shortages are

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

are going to happen, then why don't we all get together and say, first of all, how can we mitigate that? How can we you change our water usage, to if not prevent at least delay that for a few centuries? Because of our

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

have better uses of water number one, and number two, and then how can we say that despite the shortage? How can we globally ensure that everyone, everyone being on the earth will continue to have the minimum requirement of water? No matter how much shortage there is, right? So instead of focusing on wars is focusing on saying, How can we capture all the freshwater in Canada? Because Canada has the largest amount of freshwater? How can we say that how can let us look at the ways in which we can share, let's look at ways in which we can ensure that nobody has to face any hardship. And so there is no need for war. Now imagine this war also, which is being foreseen is not war being

00:15:44--> 00:15:54

contemplated to alleviate hardship, it is war being contemplated to once again corner, the moneymaking resource of the time.

00:15:56--> 00:16:35

Right, people are not fighting wars, so that the price of gas will be 10 cents a gallon for the whole world. Yeah, they're fighting for gas, they're fighting wars so that they can grab the oil and jack up the prices and make money for themselves. This is the whole problem is our orientation, our orientation is literally doggy dog, right doggy dog? And remember, even if it's a kid, what are you doing eating dog meat is Oh, how good is that, right? Instead of that, if we focus on saying how can we help one another, how can we be beneficial to one another, the same,

00:16:36--> 00:16:50

this would be a far better thing to do, I mean, the amount of energy required and so on. So, what would be far more today, if you just look at the amount of money that is, globally speaking, if you take the figures and this is not my imagination, all these figures are available.

00:16:52--> 00:17:04

And statistics are published. If you take the amount of money, the global amount of investment, in for example, public health, geriatric care, which is care of the elderly,

00:17:05--> 00:17:31

have to do to money invested in, in public health, money invested in good education, money is invested in providing good nutrition, not just one piece of bread, good nutrition, good nutrition, especially to young children like to influence and young children, which makes a long lasting impact on their health, on their mental ability and so on and so forth. money

00:17:32--> 00:17:54

spent I mentioned education already, money invested in providing a roof over the head for everyone who does not have housing, right things like this money invested in producing food and shorting the nobody is ever goes needs to go to bed hungry, no matter what whether they have job, no job, they should not be able to do and they should not have to go to bed hungry.

00:17:55--> 00:18:24

Right? Instead of all this. If you notice it, I mean, if you if you look at the amount of money invested in all of this, and compare it to the money invested in arms and armaments, globally speaking, what are that one word killing the money invested in killing who we are not talking about killing flies, we're talking about killing human beings, the money invested in producing more and more efficient ways of killing human beings.

00:18:26--> 00:18:43

There is not even a comparison, right? Today, we will be people, some some people grumble about the space programs that are there in different country, in different countries in NASA and so on Russia, Russia, incidentally, has a very, very advanced space program. India has has as a

00:18:44--> 00:18:59

space program as well. So the point if people some people sometimes say, Oh, well, you know, what, why are they spending money on this should not be spending money on food? Well, why don't you say why they're spending money on producing weapons of mass destruction instead of food? Right? Why don't you say that?

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

You just spend the expert because especially the money that is spent on the space program is really, it's ridiculous. It's a it's a miniscule amount, it is really, you know, not even worth talking about, compared to the money that is spent on

00:19:13--> 00:19:17

on creating arms and armaments. How come nobody complains about that?

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

Think about this, even the complaints of slaves are four things which are beneficial.

00:19:26--> 00:19:59

We have enslaved ourselves believe me we meaning human beings not only Muslim Muslims, of course, but but generally human beings. A general civil population has enslaved itself very willingly. We don't even need anyone to sit and you know, hold a gun to our head anymore. We hold the gun ourselves. And that's one of the bunnies lately. This is what exactly the one. This is why the Koran is so important. This is why these stories of the Quran are so important. This is why the story of Moses is so important because it's showing us in graphic terms, what we are doing to ourselves and this story is 2000 plus 3000

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

Maybe years ago, right? So nothing changes as human beings are human beings.

00:20:05--> 00:20:31

So, here these people, the bunnies, right of Egypt, they don't have the courage to look at themselves they don't have the courage to take action. As I said Allah, Allah does not change the good condition of a people until the changes themselves meaning what meaning until they do things which invite the anger of Allah subhanaw taala once again, we are living in a world today we are living this today and I'll come to that in a minute just hold this thought in your mind.

00:20:34--> 00:20:47

So, what do they do instead of facing themselves instead of chasing themselves they look outside to come and save them they look for our doors they look for they want God to descend in this form or that form

00:20:48--> 00:21:22

to come and save themselves all these stories that it takes a whole bunch of mythology that we have in India for example, they were the in the Indian mythological stories, they are full of stories of avatars Yeah, this is not your Facebook avatar or something, this is an avatar is somebody out that means God came down on the earth in some other form. So the God came down in the form of human beings or in the form of something else. So they the all the Hindu not all but I mean many of the

00:21:23--> 00:21:35

the Hindu biological stories are the story is around a situation where the will import good people who are being oppressed and so on and so forth by some Rakshasas um

00:21:37--> 00:21:52

what is the translation for a monster, which will be a monster as in a human human form. And this is the story tends to give a physical form to what this monster is doing. So this monster is very huge and

00:21:54--> 00:22:38

because we are a racist people, the monsters are always black. And then you know, they have big teeth and whatnot. So these monsters come and they oppress. And these people just they're they're, they're, they're being oppressed, they do nothing to save themselves. until God now comes down in a human form as an avatar, and kills the monster is never a story where the people rose up and say what monster Mr. Monster you are 10 feet tall, we're all of us together are 1000 feet tall, that if you add up all the all our heights, so what is a 10 foot tall guy going to do to 1000 foot tower tall, you know, entity, but then that lab only if they come together, they never do that. And then

00:22:38--> 00:23:10

if you read the history, for example of India, or the ancient history of India, there's not one single revolution. Never. There's never been a revolution against oppressors we always whine and groan and moan and we cry. And we've always won games from there that one game from them. All Yes, true. Very true. Also, what we do what we forget, and we don't say, is this one that one didn't come on his own. He was invited. He was paid for he was out he was paid to come. He was given the the daughters of the local people in marriage right now, what more do you want?

00:23:13--> 00:23:25

So the literally, you make the person your Dharma, and then you want to complete what the point is, why don't you say? Well, he came, but we were here and I in terms of numbers, we were far more How come we didn't kick him out?

00:23:27--> 00:23:48

We didn't we never did. Right. And if and I'm saying India, because I know that history is the best because I'm Indian. But if you look at history, generally speaking, this is the strangest situation, people will not do anything to save themselves. And not only will they not do anything to save themselves, but if somebody comes and allows him somebody who rises up from allowing them to to take up the cudgels on their behalf they will know

00:23:49--> 00:23:54

but they keep on complaining that they are enslaved. And this is exactly what was happening in

00:23:56--> 00:24:01

the in in Egypt with the money is right so the people they were blaming others

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

now

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

Moses said to them, have some

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

now he said he said have so now a lot of our data then talks about what he did. So once this fit around, now it seems like the clock is now the stopwatch has started. So now you start

00:24:26--> 00:24:29

you start counting backwards. So in this case, I lost

00:24:31--> 00:24:34

out wilhemina shodhana Rodimus Mila Romani

00:24:36--> 00:24:42

Sydney and I wanna cozy minutes Amara de la la musica road. Why?

00:24:44--> 00:24:47

Santa to call the

00:24:48--> 00:24:53

rooms a year doing the Euro, yet a euro we move

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

in Roman law why

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

lack in a home lie,

00:25:03--> 00:25:16

a large amount of data set. And indeed, we punish the people of your own with years of drought and shortness of fruit, that is a crops failed, that they might take heat. But whenever good came to them, they said, this is ours.

00:25:17--> 00:25:31

And if he will have looked at them, they describe the ascribe the evil or is the evil to evil omens connected with Moses alive and those with him, be informed Verily, their evil omens are with Allah and most of them do not know.

00:25:33--> 00:25:34

Now, this is the

00:25:35--> 00:25:46

you know, this is the beauty of what happens and as I read the story I cannot help but continuously look at what we are doing as people in this world

00:25:47--> 00:25:52

so Allah subhanaw taala tells us a story and how it developed and what happened

00:25:53--> 00:25:56

where these people you can see the their stubbornness their

00:25:58--> 00:26:02

their refusal to accept the truth no matter

00:26:03--> 00:26:15

what evidence was brought to them so they said oh call oh mama daddy now be mean it really just be her mama nano locka Mini.

00:26:17--> 00:26:18

And

00:26:24--> 00:26:37

these are almost whatever I add, whatever proof whatever evidence you may bring to us to work there with your sorcery. They continue to say that, you know, the Maasai Salamis a sorcerer is an is a magician.

00:26:38--> 00:26:43

Whatever you bring to work your sorcery, we will never believe in you.

00:26:45--> 00:26:49

So Allah vanadyl now is tightening the screws.

00:26:51--> 00:26:57

So Allah says first Allah Allah He Motovun aldara Welcome Allah dava our Dharma

00:26:58--> 00:27:50

team for solid in Vostok baru wakanow Coleman would remain, while Amma collymore resu Kahlua Masada rula na Baka Bhima Haider en la in cash on narrow ridges, la mina laka Silla Nevada Bani Israel el balama goshelf na no more Riza Isla Julian ballyhoo is omean goes on fun calm in home forever aka now home phillium the unknown Godzilla movie is our gun feelin a lot of our data set and So now Allah is sending them or tightening the screws and this is the way it happens, which is that you get the IR you get

00:27:51--> 00:27:54

evidence and you get warnings

00:27:56--> 00:27:56

which are

00:27:57--> 00:28:05

less severe which are which are gentle, it's like a tap on the wrist. And if you repent if you

00:28:06--> 00:28:08

you know, turn your

00:28:10--> 00:28:13

if you change your ways and inshallah if we

00:28:15--> 00:28:20

we change ourselves and Allah, Allah will not bring the other will not make, but if they don't.

00:28:21--> 00:28:31

And if they continue to rebel, then the starts the thing starts increasing more and more until more and more difficulties until in the end there is a

00:28:33--> 00:28:56

there is another there is a punishment, which is not turned back. So Allah says will be sent on them the floods, the flood, the lockers, the lies the frauds and the blood as a succession of manifest signs, one after the other they came, yet they remain arrogant and that is the key, the key is guru Take heed to the warning that comes sometimes it comes in the form of somebody,

00:28:57--> 00:29:09

you know, telling you something, trying to convince you at other times it comes in in other ways. The key is what do you do? Do you listen? Do you take heed?

00:29:10--> 00:29:20

And also I mentioned this whole sequence of what happens in Surah DRC what Allah Subhana Allah said while the diploma Salah has haberl Korea

00:29:22--> 00:29:47

alone, is our Salah la hemos inany for Gaza, Houma buzzers and IV Salif makalu in LA for more shallow Paloma anthem in Washoe Miss Luna mama Angela harmony Shea in under the letter Z one all the way down to pay any amount to better become first tomorrow. Taylor Coolio Jana, Ali Ali, the homie Allah moon

00:29:49--> 00:29:54

Mohammed, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned all of these ad mailers monitor, give us the

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

top view Allah said and put forward to them

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

The example the story of the dwellers of the town. When they came to them, three messengers, they came to the messengers. And this town is supposed to be an Takia or Antioch, which is currently in Turkey. When we sent to them to my centers, and they belied them both they denied them both. So we reinforce them with a third and they said, Verily, We have been sent to you as messengers. The people of the town said you are only human beings like ourselves and the Most Beneficent Allah. Allah has revealed nothing to you You are liars, we're telling lies. The messenger says the messengers said our ROM knows that we have been sent as messengers to you we don't have to prove

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

anything to anybody.

00:30:45--> 00:31:35

Our duty is only to convey plainly the message oma Alina lol Bella will move in. For us the duty is only to convey the message, the people said for us, we see an evil Omen from you. So first deny, then start casting as person start slandering. start, start by talking, we see only an evil Omen form you from you. And if you don't stop, if you do not see is we will surely stone you and appear for painful trauma and we'll touch you from us. So next step, malign and to, to to cause any kind of psychological damage to try to intimidate and to threaten with actual physical punishment imprisonment, beatings, and so on and so forth. Now see the the

00:31:36--> 00:31:59

messengers themselves, what is their response? They said Carlota iroko Marco I indicated on barangan calm was reformed, they said they, they said you're evil, almost be with you. Do you call it an evil Omen when you are being admonished when you are being warned? for your benefit? Now, this is the tragedy of the human race that

00:32:01--> 00:32:04

we do not like. People who,

00:32:06--> 00:32:26

who wake us up who we don't like people who wake us up, we don't like people who want us not to do negative things, because it will harm us. Not the one who's wanting there's this. This humorous, but very poignant and very important. little story. Someone asked the rooster

00:32:27--> 00:32:29

you know, the dog, which grows every morning,

00:32:30--> 00:32:51

someone asked the rooster, why do people kill you? Why do people you know, tandoori chicken, why wild? Why do they always look to slaughter you? The rooster said nobody, people don't like those who wake them up. So because rooster crows every morning, and wakes up people. So he said the people don't like those who wake them up.

00:32:52--> 00:33:08

And it's not only about roosters, this is about the way people have always treated messengers and prophets, the way people treat to this day, those who are concerned about them, those who try to warn them,

00:33:09--> 00:33:37

those who try to wake them up, those who try to open their eyes to the harmfulness of what they are doing. look at ourselves today in this world. Two things I want to say to you. One is that we have a basic equation that runs whole world, which is that every activity, every significant activity, I mean, if you're doing some piddly little things away, nobody bothers you. But as long once you become significant, every significant activity

00:33:38--> 00:33:53

must necessarily make profit for a certain small group of people. Currently, it is eight men. Right? every activity must make profit for them. If it doesn't make profit for them, that activity is ignored. It is removed it is you know, it is destroyed.

00:33:55--> 00:34:02

And the second thing we and that's why we're not second, that's the reason why we have a world which is so absolutely.

00:34:03--> 00:34:12

You know, it's it's so bipolar, if you look at it, it's so schizophrenic, where if you take the combined

00:34:14--> 00:34:36

budgets, of all live giving things, which is public health, which is food production, which education which is shelters, I mentioned this earlier also. And that combined budget is not even a fraction of what we spent on weapons of mass destruction. So this is why this is what we have become. And we don't like people who say that. So the they said to the to sorry, Sarah, that

00:34:37--> 00:34:43

we will run around with these people in the end of Antioch. They said to the messengers to the prophets who came to them that

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

we will, you know, we will, if you if you don't desist, and this is from what you were not harming them this there was just wanting them saying genuine ways you are doing evil things. Stop doing them. You know, fear the anger of Allah, this is evil stop. If you if

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

Don't stop doing this, then we are going to cause you harm. And then,

00:35:06--> 00:35:14

of course Allah subhanaw taala protects his messengers. So this whole conversation was going on, and then came

00:35:15--> 00:35:39

in Uppsala, Medina de radula. Yes, Carly call me Toby will emotionally. They came to them from the farthest end of the town, a man saying, Oh my people, obey the messengers obey those who ask no wages of you. These are messengers they're wanting you. They're not doing commercial Dawa. They're not doing this as a business. This is what they are doing for your benefits or listen to them obey them. They,

00:35:41--> 00:36:15

they ask no wages, for from you, they ask no compensation from you. And these are people who are rightly guided, and why should I not worship Allah, him alone who guided me, and to whom you shall be returned? Shall I take besides him other than Him, I which is God's, if the if Allah if the if the, if the most beneficial? Indians me any harm, their intercession will be of no use for me whatsoever, nor can they save me. And if I did that, then very, I would be in plain error.

00:36:16--> 00:37:01

So he said in the AMA, to better become first my own very I have believed in our in Europe. So listen to me, Kayla corrigin, it was said to him. Enter Jana, because then what happened, then the disbelievers killed him. And he said, Carla, later for me, I'm on the ma, ma for Ali. Robbie, was yaalon immunol mokara. me, he said, I wish my people knew that my Arab forgave me, and made me of the honored people. Now, this is, as I mentioned, I said this to you as a side note, because this is the reality, this is what happens as a sequence. Anytime somebody

00:37:03--> 00:37:10

is doing the work of Dawa, you encounter resistance you encounter people who will

00:37:11--> 00:37:18

oppose you. And as I told you, the tragedy and the paradox of the defeated people, of the,

00:37:19--> 00:37:35

of the of the enslaved races, is psychologically, they dislike those who come to help them, save society seems so paradoxical. But that's how it is. So Allah subhanaw taala, then said, and so Bella, tighten the he sent them to Florida, and the locusts and so on.

00:37:36--> 00:38:14

And then they did not heed even that. And then Allah said, and when the punishment fell on them, then then of course, the, the all the sequence. And at one point in time, he said, Oh, they said, then when they perish, but almost make God for us, to Europe for us because of his promise to you. If you remove the punishment from us, we indeed shall believe in you. And we let the children of Israel go with you. So every time one of these trials came on them to Florida, and the locusts and so on, they would go to movies, and they would say, well, Sally is a lamb, they will go to him and they would say, please make sure that you are ruptured, remove this punishment.

00:38:15--> 00:38:15

And we will

00:38:17--> 00:38:28

send the bunnies right with you. Right, we will give up give up our evil ways we will stop oppressing them. But when but when Musa alayhis salam, a DA and Allah subhanaw taala stopped the punishment, they broke their word they were again.

00:38:31--> 00:38:45

They would again, you know, do what they were doing. So the next punishment came. And this continued, and this is the sooner also Allah subhanaw taala where Allah, Allah gives enough time that you can't say I didn't, I didn't have time, enough time, enough opportunities.

00:38:47--> 00:39:05

And eventually, I lost Ramadan, I said, so we took retribution from them. We drowned them in the sea because they belied Our Ayat. And they were heedless about that. Now, the lesson I want to remind myself in your work is the importance of a birth, a Birkin as the

00:39:06--> 00:39:27

of having the ability to recognize and to see the signs of Allah subhanaw taala not very look at them, to see the sign of Allah subhanaw taala in what happens them otherwise we continue to sin, and we do not change our lives. The how and the why does he think about this and say that if we are

00:39:29--> 00:39:31

when we are in this world, we

00:39:33--> 00:39:37

talk about the when we look at something we say

00:39:38--> 00:39:41

How did this happen? So for example, if you say, earthquakes,

00:39:42--> 00:40:00

earthquakes, you say, how does an earthquake happen? Then people will say this is it happens because of the movement of the tectonic plates. The tectonic plates, one rides up on the other, and as a result of that, the earth shakes Alright. So that

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

Good. We know that but same people now, you ask them another question, you say,

00:40:07--> 00:40:15

how do you ask them? How do earthquakes happen? So now you tell them, Why do earthquakes happen?

00:40:16--> 00:40:25

So now you asked one question before, which is how do earthquakes happen? Now you're asking a different question. Think about this. You're not asking the same question, a different question.

00:40:26--> 00:40:52

Why do earthquakes happen? What is the answer, you will get this earthquakes happen because of the movement of tectonic plates. And when one plate rides up on the other days, I just asked you this question and I asked you, how does it happen? You told me now I'm asking you, why does it happen? You're telling me the same thing? How can the answer to two different questions be the same?

00:40:54--> 00:41:02

How something happens and why it happens? are two different questions. How can the answer to both of them be the same?

00:41:03--> 00:41:27

I'm not going to give you the answer. Now. I'm going to leave this with you. I want you to think about this. And in the next class inshallah, we'll talk about the issue of how things happen, and why they happen. And why to know the why. Why it is important for us to recognize Allah subhanho wa salam ala Bukhari while Allah He was named that I had to go from Santa Monica, to my co workers.
