00:00:00--> 00:00:51

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Shafi Lambie evil mousseline. mohammadu Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, wa aalihi, wa sahbihi wa sallam doesn't even Kaziranga Sera, my Babu mighty brothers and sisters, we are on the story of Musa Ali Salam and your own and as I told you, this is one of the most beautiful stories of the Koran and it is so full of wisdom and so full of learning that at least for me, it is impossible to do justice to that story. I shall try to do my best when I ask Allah Serrano data to help me to do my best and to enable that to be a means of care and and guidance and benefit for all of us inshallah.

00:00:53--> 00:01:41

One of the most important things in the story, and the reason why it's important is because as I mentioned earlier, and this is from the hobbies, so seldom, he said that you are the boss, which is the meaning of the hobbies and that is that we are Muslims are the inheritors of the bunnies, right of the people who were the oma of Musa alayhis salam because Musa alayhis salam came with a walk he came with a Sharia easily Salaam followed his Sharia and then also Salam came with a final Sharia the final book of laws from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the similarities between Musashi, salah and Rasul Allah is Allah I sell them are far more than the similarities between Musa alayhis salam and

00:01:41--> 00:01:55

Isa Alisha. For example, both masala Salam and was also Salam were born, they had parents, they had both parents they had a mother and a father. They grew up they went through all kinds of hardships.

00:01:56--> 00:02:09

They married they had children, they fought in, in battles for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they both died. Whereas for easily salame

00:02:10--> 00:02:18

practically none of this applies to him we Sally Salaam, was born as a sign from Allah subhanho wa Taala. He had no father. He

00:02:20--> 00:03:05

grew up and he didn't fight battles and all of that obviously he did not get married, he had no children, and he did not die He was lifted alive by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is reason why he will return before the day of judgment and that is one of the major signs of the of judgment, the return of his early Salaam, and he will proclaim the true religion, which is the religion that he brought, and the religion that Musa alayhis salam brought, and the reason that and the religion that Abraham Alayhi Salam brought, and the religion that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam brought and that religion is Islam, which is the worship of no one other than Allah

00:03:05--> 00:03:29

subhanho wa Taala, our Creator, sustainer, maintainer, and owner and not joining anybody as partner with him because he has no partners. He has no sons and daughters. He has no father and mother he is not like anything in creation, including ourselves. Human beings are not created in his image. They are created in the image of themselves.

00:03:30--> 00:03:53

Like everything else, and this is the religion that was brought by all the mbls mussalam I named only for me primary Sara Mousavi service Ali salam, and mohammadu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but every NaVi every Russel brought the same religion, which is La ilaha illa Allah.

00:03:54--> 00:04:26

For us, it is La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah. Now, it's very important, therefore the story of Mousavi Salaam, because Musa alayhis, salaam, Allah subhanho wa Taala caused him and his people to go through all kinds of situations in life. And Allah subhanho wa Taala door has that story, because so that we can learn how to behave, and what works and what doesn't work when we go to these stages in life. So Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

talked about the signs that he sent to the people of Iran. Now remember, this is a thing which we are right now we are living, we are living through that this COVID is a sign from Allah subhanaw taala. But it's a sign for Allah subhanho wa Taala only for somebody who has the eyes to see who has the Abrams who can take evidence from what is happening. And one of the big ways in which we get fooled is through science is through knowledge. There's nothing wrong with science, science is absolutely critical. Essential science is also

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

from Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no separate source for knowledge of scientific information. So when our Muslim scholars and some people, when they try to throw science under the bus and they say that this is the knowledge of of Kufa and so on, that's absolute and total complete bunkum and knowledge and rubbish. All knowledge is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. The issue is to use the right knowledge in the right place, right? The knowledge of engineering is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So is the knowledge of medicine. But when a doctor is performing art surgery, he is not using engineering that he's using his knowledge of medicine, his knowledge of human physiology, right. So

00:05:42--> 00:06:19

if somebody says, you know, this is a shaitan e knowledge, which is engineering, and because it cannot help you to perform a heart surgery, we would say you're mad, you're crazy, because it has nothing to do with heart surgery. It's not shaitan in everyday all knowledge is from Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala geladeira The issue is to use it in the right place. Right if you take some knowledge which is which is not relevant to the situation, then obviously it won't work. It doesn't mean the knowledge is wrong, it means that you are applying it in the wrong place and that's why I request you please keep this in mind. Science is very important. But if you are going to try to use

00:06:19--> 00:06:25

science to see the signs of a loss of data, you are going to get completely and totally

00:06:26--> 00:06:37

misguided. See what happened with this in the in the case of fraud or loss of our data set said I will be wrong it rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim what are called

the home gazebo via Tina watch what God one

00:08:22--> 00:08:31

really allows America has added Indeed, we punish the people of your own with years of drought. Now I want you to understand

00:08:32--> 00:08:43

we are always in a hurry. And I don't blame us. We don't i don't blame anyone who's in a hurry. I'm just saying let us try to understand the time perspective of what Allah subhanaw taala does.

00:08:44--> 00:09:20

We will be in a hurry because we are suffering the pain there is pain. You don't say well, no, I don't care let the pain go on as long as it warrants as long as it eventually goes away. That is enough. No usually what I wanted I wanted to get out of this pain like when like now like yesterday, right? So for the human being to be in a hurry to get out of difficulties perfectly understandable. But that is the reason why we have the knowledge of Islam, which teaches us to bear it with patience. It doesn't mean don't make dua for for relief, of course make the offer relief. What did you know you won't make Gulf War for more trouble, you make the offer relief, but you make this job

00:09:20--> 00:09:59

with the understanding that 100 there is no one more merciful and that Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala gets no pleasure out of giving us difficulties. So if there is a difficulty, the difficulty is not going away, even though I'm making the one much i do i was looked back in my life and look at why that difficulty happened. Not how it is happening, why and how I want you to keep these two words in mind inshallah, today or tomorrow or the next lesson, we will talk about that, why it happened, not how it happens. Here are laws rather than a saying so here Allah said we punish them with drought for years. How many years? I don't know. Right? I don't know. Obviously it was within

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

the law.

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

Am busara so it wasn't 200 years, because he didn't he didn't live that long. But the point is that it was us it was several years, right? It was not, it was not even not even two years because in Arabic there is a separate word for Israel for two, and here almost rather did not use and so therefore, and indeed we punish the people of Iran with years of drought and shortness of fruit, meaning that they either had droughts without nothing happened, or their crops failed. So what the crop which was supposed to be produced, that crop was much less the shortness of fruits that they might remember and take heed. Think about this. Why do we fast ly loco taco

00:10:48--> 00:11:31

so that we become motorhome? The purpose of fasting is what to bring about taqwa. And that is why we have to understand the purpose of difficulties is to bring about taqwa, the purpose of difficulties is to turn towards Allah Subhana, WA to make Toba in his heart. And similarly here is not fasting. But I'm using the example of fasting to illustrate this, the fasting is difficulty. So is this. But here, it's coming as a also as a punishment, but the purpose of that, see if a child extend his arm towards the fire, the mother may tell the child don't do that you will get burned. He does it again, she slaps him on the wrist, right? She doesn't break his and she doesn't take a chop out and chop it

00:11:31--> 00:11:37

off. No, she slaps him on the wrist. Now, the child will cry because it hurts.

00:11:38--> 00:12:22

But what is the purpose? Why did the mother slap the child on the wrist? Was it because she's sad stick moment, and she wants to see this child suffer. So she gives him this pain? No, she is doing that to save the child from a much worse pain. Because if he did not slap him on the wrist, as a result of which he draws, he withdraws his hand and saves itself himself from the fire. If the mother did not do that, then the child would put his hand in the fire, and then he will get burned. And it's a no brainer to ask this question and say, which hurts more. Right? Now. Therefore, when Allah subhanaw taala is sending difficulties and tending tests on us. Allah sent us today as we as I

00:12:22--> 00:12:44

speak, Allah sent us on as a test and a difficulty called COVID-19, which has a mortality rate of 1.5%, which means that 99% of people or 98.5% of people who get COVID-19 will survive. But even though it has a it has a

00:12:46--> 00:13:04

survivor, it has a mortality of fertility rate of 1.5%, you find that we are in a panic, that we are in a complete panic, because obviously 1.5% sounds like like a small number, but in absolute terms, in terms of the number of people.

00:13:05--> 00:13:45

Right on the water affected. It's a lot of people. I mean, as I as I speak today, as on today, there are the global statistics. And of course, the global statistics, statistics have to be taken with a handful of short, because there are many countries who are not even reporting the correct statistics, not because they are those countries are full of dishonest people, but because they don't even have the means of measuring it. So they don't even know how many people are actually dying of COVID, or what's happening. So despite that, from whatever measurement data is being done, we know that as I speak today to you, on the on the 10th of or the 11th of August

00:13:48--> 00:13:53

over four and a half million people have died in the world, because of COVID.

00:13:55--> 00:14:14

Right now, the point is not the number. The point is that here is this test. Now what are we focused on we are focused on how can we cure this? How can we get out of this? How many of you are asking why did this happen? And when you say why did this happen? How many people are answering that saying because people were eating bats in China?

00:14:15--> 00:14:52

Is that why it happened? Or is that how it happened? Again, keep the thought in your mind why and how, what is Allah saying? If you talk to the people around at the time they were having these droughts, if you talk to their agricultural scientists, for example, what would they say? You ask how come there is a drought? What would they say? They would say we know that is not enough rainfall, the Nile dried up, maybe our litigation system is faulty. so on So are you asking why why our crops failing or not in a moisture What are they answering the question why or are they answering the question? How?

00:14:54--> 00:14:58

How does the drought happen? Because there is no rain. Why does the drought happen? Some other answer?

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

If I asked you, for example,

00:15:03--> 00:15:12

sitting here the budget if I ask you this question, I mean here meaning I'm not in the budget right now I'm saying if you're sitting in the budget, if you ask this question and say,

00:15:13--> 00:15:27

brother, how did you come here? You say I drove here. Okay. Why did you come here? He said, I drove here. No, I'm not asking. I already asked you. How did you come here? You say you drove here. I'm asking you. Why did you come here? Oh, I drove here.

00:15:28--> 00:15:29

You said you're crazy.

00:15:30--> 00:15:42

I'm asking you. How did you come here? And I'm asking you why did you come here? You're giving me the same answer for both the quad. How is it possible? How did you come here? I drove Why did you come here to praise Malaysia?

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

Yes or no?

00:15:46--> 00:15:51

So if you if I ask you, why did you come here is I came to praise Malaysia. How do you come here?

00:15:52--> 00:15:55

I came to praise Russia. Both are wrong, right.

00:15:56--> 00:16:10

Why is a different question. We looked at a different thing. And how is a different question. We looked at a different thing. How looks at the method How does something happen? How did you come here I drove.

00:16:14--> 00:16:25

Why? does not look at the matter why looks at the reason? Why did you come here? Why did you drive to come to the masjid? Why to pray Salah Trisha.

00:16:28--> 00:16:32

You get why Why is this not semantic? This is the reason why.

00:16:35--> 00:16:54

In nation after nation, if you read the Quran, the question obviously comes to you that all of these nations which were destroyed, whether it was odd, whereby there was some old, whether it was the people of holies, whether it was the people of Saudi Arabia, whether it was the people or musalla, Israel and the people of Iran.

00:16:56--> 00:17:05

We are talking about civilizations, we're talking about countries, we are talking about nations, which were highly successful.

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

Now, they didn't become successful by being stupid.

00:17:10--> 00:17:18

They didn't get all their wealth. And by and you know, they created this, they build these enormous monuments and they build these fantastic buildings.

00:17:19--> 00:17:31

in caves, I mean, think about this a few 1000 years later, today, we go there with our jaws dropped open, marveling at the size and the complexity of the pyramids.

00:17:34--> 00:17:39

So do you think the people who build the pyramids were stupid people, they were dumb people, they're ignorant people, they knew nothing.

00:17:41--> 00:17:58

They knew everything. They were highly intelligent people. They were people with technology, which today even today, we don't have, they were people with, with an understanding of the universe with an understanding of of the forces of nature that even today we don't have,

00:17:59--> 00:18:12

the way the pyramids and so on are aligned the way it is done. Believe me Even today, if you look at it and go go go when you YouTube is you know, and Google is these the Saudi repository of all information, go check out.

00:18:14--> 00:18:24

There is no way that people could have built those things today. If you think about easy, you know, the only way I can understand this is if I have satellite photography.

00:18:25--> 00:18:44

If I have drone, drone, footage, drone photography, if I have sight satellite positioning, to know how to align this building, and you're not talking about aligning a building. I got this wrong, go get a movie. No, the thing is so big. It's like a mountain. It's visible from space.

00:18:47--> 00:18:52

People didn't get that didn't build those things. Because they were stupid.

00:18:54--> 00:19:09

So then you have a question. If they were really intelligent, how come they did not see the signs of that? How come they did not recognize what was happening to them when they were getting these droughts and when they were getting

00:19:10--> 00:19:28

the other. And I will come to the I mean I decided to look at the the the meaning of it when you come to the other test that allows raw data sent on them and allows them to send on them test after test after test. Yet they did not understand what was happening.

00:19:31--> 00:19:34

Today we are looking at COVID do we understand what's happening?

00:19:36--> 00:19:45

Or are we too busy saying wear a mask don't wear a mask, wash your hand don't wash your hand turn on the AC turn off the AC right?

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

How many COVID how many people the people who are hooked on to COVID Let me ask you a question directly to your face. You are hooked onto COVID you are looking at those COVID videos. You are you are looking at the COVID numbers. Day in and day out and you are you are freaking out

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

And you're freaking out everybody else around you.

00:20:04--> 00:20:06

Do ask this question, why is this happening?

00:20:08--> 00:20:21

What can I, as an individual do to impact this positively? who take away this? The question? And if you're not asking this question, why you look why you're destroying yourself, your own happiness and the happiness of others.

00:20:24--> 00:20:40

The finest way, the best way, the fastest way to destroy your happiness to destroy your peace of mind, is to hook your happiness and peace of mind to a metric that you do not control. And look at it all day.

00:20:43--> 00:21:02

I read this on my Twitter feed one day, and I will wrote this thing I was and this thing is a is a genius. He said, the best and fastest way of destroying your happiness and peace of mind is to hook your happiness in peace of mind to a metric that you do not control and look at it all day.

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

What's the metric they use here? How many people are dying of COVID? How many positive cases? Do you control that? No. Can you control that? No.

00:21:14--> 00:21:24

I hope you're happiness to that. And you want to look at all day and watch videos about that and listen to all kinds of conspiracy theories. But you won't get vaccinated.

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

What you can do, you won't do

00:21:29--> 00:21:47

what is not in your control. You want to hook your happiness to that and you want to freak out. I mean, imagine this is nothing changes. I mean, the pyramids were built God or 3000 years ago, in 3000 years, human stupidity hasn't changed. We are just as stupid as those people. Even though we have knowledge like that.

00:21:48--> 00:21:57

Please don't fool yourself. I think that we have the most knowledge. The people before us had had a hell of a lot more knowledge than we had. We had they had a different kind of knowledge we were different guys and knowledge.

00:21:59--> 00:22:03

ninjas was a phenomenal people. I mean, they had knowledge that you wouldn't believe.

00:22:04--> 00:22:11

And we know this I mean, this is not not somebody's imagination is not my authority, we know this from what they left behind.

00:22:15--> 00:22:26

So unless writer is telling us what happened, he says that we gave them we punish them by with years of drought and shortness of fruits, that they may remember and take heat.

00:22:29--> 00:23:11

They may ask why is it happening? not think about what how it is happening. And then Allah says, But whenever good came to them, they said this is ours. And if evil afflicted them, they said these are evil omens connected with Beausoleil, Salah, and those with him. Allah said, Be involved, verily that he will omens are with Allah and nobody knows, and most of them do not know. And then they said to Musa alayhis, salam, whatever is whatever proof and signs and revelation you will bring to us to work there with your sorcery, your magic on us, we will never believe in you.

00:23:12--> 00:23:52

So when Moses Allah is showing them, your signs of Allah subhanaw taala. They call it magic. And they say we don't get the magic. Here is an issue where we need to ask ourselves this question. One is, you don't believe because you don't understand, which means what? Which means that if somebody can convince you somebody, if somebody can give you evidence, then you will believe logical, logical progression of that argument. But there's another thing which is that even though you understand you will not believe no matter what happens. And this was the state of Magellan, for example, somebody asked him really tell me. Do you really believe that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is not enemy? He

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

said, No, he's gonna be,

00:23:54--> 00:24:00

I believe is Robbie. Then why don't you believe in it? Why don't we accept Islam? He said, because

00:24:02--> 00:24:15

the rivalry between our two clans, we've always tried to be better than them. But now they have unabie. Now how can we be good? How can we be better to them? They've got the trump card,

00:24:16--> 00:24:17

they have the Navy.

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

So we refuse to accept.

00:24:21--> 00:24:54

We refuse to accept that this lobby that he's in, even though we know his enemy, but we will not accept my brothers and sisters as there's no cure to that if you will not recognize the truth. If you deliberately say that you will deny the truth, then nobody in the world can help you because they're the best that anybody can do is to produce the truth for you. And this is what the MLA mussalam did. They brought the truth they presented it. Now it's up to you. If you still don't want to believe it. Well, I help you because nobody else will. So Allah, Allah said and then when they did this,

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

they refused to believe Allah so we sent on them Nara, sending them

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

Just advertise. We sent on them the flood, right? The Nile flooded the locusts, lice, frogs and blood. I imagine you can say what you want about about, you know, a flood and all natural calamity locals where locals happen. And a lot of that happens in Africa and Egypt is part of Africa lies where your people will not clean enough. What do you say about frogs, you had millions and zillions of rods which came out of the out of the Nile and and they And out of all the rivers and waters it they infested, though that those people have in their water everywhere, they had frog and eventually blood, can you believe this? Nowhere does the blood come from the point is if you want to deny there

00:25:44--> 00:25:47

is nothing to stop, nothing can help you, nobody can hurt

00:25:49--> 00:26:17

human beings. And you know this, this is true for us. I mean, imagine imagine the people who are in denial. For example, people who are suffering from psychological problems have psychiatric problems. People who are bipolar are people who are schizophrenic, one of the biggest problems is for them to accept that they have a problem. People who are in depression, the main the people who are despair, the biggest problem is fought to get them to accept that there is a problem.

00:26:18--> 00:26:23

People whose marriages are falling apart, they refuse to accept that I have a problem.

00:26:25--> 00:26:30

The reason is marriage is falling apart is not always somebody else's by it. I am part of that problem.

00:26:32--> 00:26:33

in negotiating

00:26:35--> 00:26:42

in arbitrations, I mean, I do I do I do arbitration as part of my professional consulting practice.

00:26:43--> 00:27:07

One of the biggest problems is to get people to accept the fact that they that they are a part of the problem. But that is the great reliever. That is the great strength. That is the great enabler. The moment you accept, yes, we have a problem. Yes, I am that problem, or I'm a part of that problem. Immediately the doors for solutions open.

00:27:09--> 00:27:48

But if you always want to export the blame, and general love by Brides, somebody else's problem, then there is no there is no cure. Remember, when you accept the problem as your own, you are given the strength to solve it. But when you don't want to touch the problem, when you say the problem is somebody else's, and you cannot have the you cannot get the strength to solve that. It's not your problem. It's somebody else's problem. Actually, it is yours. But this is what you're trying to convince yourself and convince others. And that's what the that's what the people have around it. So Allah said, We sent on them all of these things, yet they remained arrogant, and they were moody

00:27:48--> 00:28:32

remote. They were criminals. And then when the punishment fell on them, they will do this when the punishment fell on them, they would say almost make duart your up because of his promise to you. If we if you will remove the punishment from us. Indeed, we will believe in you. And we will let the Bani Israel go with you. So this was a game that they played every time they had abroad. Think about this. Why are they going to massage the very fact that they are going to move to la sala to say make dua to your Rob, what does it show? It shows that they believe that Musa alayhis salam is a prophet. He believed that he is a soul. They believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala only can help them. Why

00:28:32--> 00:28:57

don't they go and pray in their temples or whatever they were doing? No they do. They know this is from Allah Renata. They know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is only one who can help them. They know that they are not doing what they should be doing. So let's go to the good man who is the best of them is the Nabil. So they go to him and they say please make dua and tell you a rub. And they also know why this is happening. Look at this and see how shatta and blind you.

00:28:58--> 00:29:39

They are saying tell you or Rob to take this away and we will let the people of Bani Israel go. So they know why it's happening. It's happening because we are oppressing these people. It is happening because we have enslaved these people. These are free people like the human beings like us, but we treat them like dogs, we treat them like animals, and we have enslaved them. And this is the problem. This is why the punishment is happening. So we go to Sally's, please make go out to Europe, remove this punishment, and we will let the people go. But when that when that happens, they go back to the old thing when the punishment is lifted. They do not fulfill their part of the bargain.

00:29:41--> 00:30:00

What does that tell you? Are you looking at people who don't know or are you looking at people who are adamant and will not do right this is the problem. If you are somebody who does not know then knowledge will open your eyes. But if you are somebody who's adamant on whatever you have

00:30:00--> 00:30:36

The knowledge is not the issue, the issue is your adamancy. So here they said when Allah said when the punishment fell on them, there is no Moza invoke your rub, may God Europe for us because of his promise to you, if you will remove the punishment from us, we indeed will believe in you. And we will let the children of Israel, the bunnies, I'll go with you. But when we removed the punishment, Allah is saying, when we removed the punishment from them, for a to a fixed term, which they had to reach, before they broke their word,

00:30:39--> 00:31:01

punishment to make dua, and really make that they remove it. So Allah said, so we took retribution from them, we drowned them in the sea, because they be lied and denied our I add, and we're heedless about them. Our brothers sisters, the importance of the ability to see the signs of Allah subhanaw taala, which in order, we say erotica,

00:31:03--> 00:31:09

in whatever happens, otherwise, we continue to sin, and we do not change our lives.

00:31:11--> 00:31:15

We won't do that. Now, this is the point that I wanted to make. And I

00:31:17--> 00:31:41

told you the two the two words, which are high in how and why and why that is different. And why we need to remember these two words. And understand the difference between these two words. Why? And how, because if you don't understand that, this is what will cause us.

00:31:42--> 00:31:49

trouble. As I mentioned to you, what is the difference? The difference between how and why. Now?

00:31:54--> 00:32:36

The difference between why and how is the fact that the as I mentioned to you, why did you come to the masjid to pray? How did you come to the masjid for I drove here. Now, if you look at if you apply this in life, what happens? And what were the people of Iran doing? They were they refused to look at? Why are these things happening? Right? Maybe they got involved in the house. And these are people who are scientifically capable and so on. So maybe they were they had people saying, Okay, how can we stop this? How can it but the issue here is it's not a question. It's a question of why today we are living in a world which where we are suffering from COVID. There are lots of people who

00:32:36--> 00:32:41

are talking about how did COVID happen. But there's nobody's talking about why did COVID have

00:32:43--> 00:32:57

the problem with the misuse? I mentioned to you earlier, the misuse of knowledge by using it in a different place. And that is when we try to answer the why questions with how knowledge.

00:32:59--> 00:33:20

How is scientific knowledge, it's the knowledge of discovery. It's the knowledge of the accumulated wisdom of the ages. It's the knowledge which comes to us by using our technology, whatever is available to us. It tells us how things happen. Please understand this, it tells us how things happen. It does not tell us why things happen.

00:33:22--> 00:33:30

For example, if you ask people, if you ask geologists who if you ask them this question, how do earthquakes happen?

00:33:31--> 00:34:07

What will they tell you? They will tell you earthquakes happen because tectonic plates ride up on each other. So the earth shakes. Alright, so I asked you a question. What was the question? How do earthquakes happen by the movement of tectonic plates one over the other? Now, I'm asking you a different question. Completely different question. What is the question? Why do earthquakes happen? What is the answer, you will get the movement of tectonic plates one or the other? That's exactly as illogical as me asking you, how did you come? I drove? Why did you come I drove

00:34:09--> 00:34:15

and not asking you, how do earthquakes happen? I'm asking you why do earthquakes happen?

00:34:17--> 00:34:30

How will you answer the why question. You can only answer the why question in one way. And that is by asking the one who makes it up? Why did it happen? Who's that that is Allah Subhana Allah geladeira

00:34:32--> 00:34:38

the knowledge of Revelation the knowledge of the column of Allah the knowledge which is revealed to the Gambia,

00:34:39--> 00:34:47

that knowledge is so critical and important for us because the How will not relieve the problem.

00:34:48--> 00:34:54

How will not relieve the problem how only helps you to understand the mechanics of the problem?

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

You want to affect the problem. You want to relieve the problem you need

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

To know why it is happening, and who will tell you that nobody will tell you. And last rant that I mentioned. This is Rome. zahal pasado Phil burry well, Bahari Bhima, gush about ad nasci, losing a home by the lady Amadou Lana, whom you are you.

00:35:20--> 00:35:26

Last round, I said, the facade, the problems, the trials and tribulations, the diseases

00:35:27--> 00:35:30

that occur on the earth,

00:35:31--> 00:35:43

on the sea, bodily well Baja, on the earth and the and the sea, on the water, demand customer readiness, they are because of the deeds of people.

00:35:44--> 00:35:48

They are because of the deed that's come out of the hands of people.

00:35:49--> 00:35:57

Allah is not saying the happening because of this or that geological phenomena or medical phenomena or some of the no goes on how things

00:35:58--> 00:36:09

you're talking about the Why? Why does it happen because of the deeds of people? And why does Allah allow it to happen? How many times have you heard this word? Oh, but if there is a God, why is there suffering?

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

Suffering is because of you.

00:36:14--> 00:36:16

It's not because of there is a God or no God.

00:36:17--> 00:36:53

Allah said I allow it to happen. Lucy calm by the law, the Amadou Lala whom your god why is my hand painting because my mom slapped me, Why did my mom slapped me because I was trying to put the hand into the fire. So what must I do to take away the spin, not not put some in wind bent on it. And again, do the same thing because you're again going to get slapped, and again, it will hurt and you do that a third time again, you will get slapped until one day your mom decides Alright, this is so dumb and stupid. Let him put his hand in the fire now run away screaming, whose fault is it?

00:36:54--> 00:37:02

Why did that happen? Because you refuse to understand the why you want to continue to remain stuck in the how.

00:37:07--> 00:37:15

So, let us see why things happen. In this beautiful hair, these are the Allahumma inni brahmanda

00:37:16--> 00:37:22

he says that also the lies are seldom turned to us. And he said all mohajir in

00:37:24--> 00:37:27

there are five things with which you will be tested.

00:37:29--> 00:37:34

And I seek refuge with Allah subhanaw taala lest you live to see them.

00:37:36--> 00:38:10

Saying that I seek the protection of Allah from these tests. But he said you will be a new is not only those people is talking about all the most of the five things that you will be tested and I seek the protection of Allah from them. What are that? What are the five things that originalism said, immortality never appears among a people to such an extent that they committed openly, but plagues and diseases that were never known among their predecessors will spread among them.

00:38:11--> 00:38:34

Let me repeat, immorality never appears among a people to such an extent that they committed openly. Not only do they commit tomorrow, they openly they consider it to be their right to do that. We consider they committed openly. But if they do that what happens, plagues and diseases, pandemics, COVID-19 Hello,

00:38:35--> 00:38:54

plagues and diseases that were never known before them, among their predecessors, will spread among them. First one. Number two, they do not cheat in Weights and Measures. And whichever is not only if you are using a physical battle, you're not delivering what you said he will deliver.

00:38:56--> 00:38:57

You advertising is misleading.

00:38:58--> 00:39:22

You you're selling short, they do not cheat in weights and measures, but they will be stricken with famine, severe calamity and oppression of their rulers. How many people are here today, listening to this, who want to complain about this ruler and that ruler and so on, so on. Ask yourself why has Allah inflicted such rulers on us?

00:39:24--> 00:39:33

So Allah say and second one is what you do not cheat in Weights and Measures. You will not give people their due. So you get a ruler who will not give you your do.

00:39:35--> 00:39:59

You do not cheat in Weights and Measures but those people will be stricken with famine was severe calamity and the oppression of the rulers. Number three, they do not withhold the Zakat of their wealth, meaning they will not pay zakat, but rain will be withheld from the sky and worried not for the animals. Rain would not fall on them at all. Number four, they

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

Do not break their covenant with Allah and the messenger Salah Salah, which means that these are the people who will break the covenant, that these are the people, which are lai lai La La hamara sola boozer Allah we worship only one nobody other than you. And we we follow Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam What do we do?

00:40:21--> 00:40:29

After that we go and worship a grave we go and make around somebody, we make the up around a man, we make the off around the grave, we put our

00:40:30--> 00:40:35

head in such that you're in on a grave or in front of a grave.

00:40:38--> 00:40:42

In the saliva students at EOC and Abuja gonna say nobody but you.

00:40:50--> 00:40:51

Nobody but You

00:40:52--> 00:40:56

and outside everybody, but you. So analyzing here,

00:40:57--> 00:41:06

they do they break the covenant with Allah and the messenger. They don't break the covenant meaning that if they break the covenant, but Allah will enable their enemies

00:41:07--> 00:41:12

to overpower them and take what is in their hands.

00:41:14--> 00:41:19

Beyond is beyond that big historical stories, we were the rulers, what happened?

00:41:20--> 00:41:23

What happened? Where did it go?

00:41:24--> 00:41:28

Today we are sitting on, people are sitting on natural resources.

00:41:29--> 00:42:04

And they think that their countries have great economies know their countries, our bank account for somebody else. They can take from you whatever they want, whenever they want, and you will know that and they know that and the last one, unless they're leaders, unless their leaders rule according to the book of Allah Jalla delallo. And they seek all God from that which Allah has revealed, Allah will cause them to fight one another. constant conflict between countries, constant conflict, eternal war, always fighting.

00:42:05--> 00:42:24

Why? Because you do not want to rule by the book of Allah. What is the meaning of ruling by the book of Allah? It means the actual implementation of the Kitab of Allah of the rule of Allah in our lives. It means the establishment of justice, no injustice to anybody, no matter who that person might be. So in this ad is

00:42:25--> 00:42:28

narrated by me, Omar robiola, juanma.

00:42:29--> 00:43:16

He said that as soon as as soon as as alum turned to us and he said, Oh my god, there are five things with which you will be tested, and I seek refuge from Allah subhanho wa Taala with Allah subhanho wa Taala, lest you live to see them. The first one. immorality never appears among our people to such an extent that they committed openly, but plagues and diseases that were never known among their predecessors, will spread among them. Number two, they do not cheat in weights and measures, but they will be stricken with famine, severe calamity and the oppression of their rulers. Number three, they do not withhold Zakat of their wealth, but rain will be withheld from the sky.

00:43:17--> 00:44:04

And why did not for the animals, rain would never fall on them. Number four, they do not break the covenant with Allah and His Messenger so sanlam but Allah will enable their enemies to overpower them and take some of what they have in their hands. And number five, unless their leaders rule, according to the book of Allah subhana wa Taala and seek all God from that which Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed, Allah will cause them to fight one another. I seek refuge from Allah subhanho wa Taala as a refuge with Allah subhanho wa Taala from this and from all calamities, and I seek refuge for myself from myself, that may Allah subhanho wa Taala enable me to do that which is pleasing to

00:44:04--> 00:44:17

Him and save me from that which is not pleasing to Him. And I make the same job for you. Or Salalah Hana Karim, Allah Allah He was named Brahma to God and what about him it was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
