Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Shara Phil MBA when mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman, kathira and kathira. From ababu, my brothers and sisters, we are back on the story of Musa alayhis salam and for our amazing stories why Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

told us this story. This is history as it happened, narrated by the one

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

who was witness to all of it,

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

and who

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

knew not just what people did, but what they thought, what was in their hearts, he knew their motivations. He knew their fears, he knew their apprehensions and aspirations, and are hungry.

00:00:55--> 00:00:58

He della della, who is the one who told us the story,

00:01:00--> 00:01:24

as I mentioned before, the purpose of these stories, is not entertainment, although they are very interesting stories. But in this particular case, and all the stories of the Quran, the basic fundamental purpose is so that we learn from these stories and examine our own lives, to see what we are doing right and what we are not doing right.

00:01:25--> 00:01:31

And to change ourselves. Our relationship with the Koran is a relationship of action

00:01:32--> 00:02:18

is not an academic relationship. It's not the relationship as a researcher may have with a particular book that he or she is researching. It's not a relationship or any kind of relationship of action, the Coronel Kareem came to teach us what to do and therefore we need to do it. As I mentioned in my class on reflecting on the Quran, the Quran is a book of guidance, Allah Subhana Allah called it a book of guidance, who they lithophane to guide the motorhome, we ask a lot of makers, among them with a cane to guide all of mankind orderliness. Now, what do you call a guide, a guide book, three letter word for that is map. So, if you have a map and you are looking at a map,

00:02:18--> 00:03:07

then what is the expectation, the expectation is that you will then follow the map, meaning you will walk that route that route on that map which you are looking at. And then you will monitor yourself as you go forward to ensure that you are still on the right track and you are moving at the right speed. That is the whole purpose of having a map. Nobody just looks at a map because it's you know, it looks like a nice piece of abstract art or something, or because they want to see the names of cities or whatnot. No, we will look at maps. People look at a map for a reason. And the reason is that they want to go to the destination, which is shown on the map. So if I want to go to from here

00:03:07--> 00:03:23

to Boston, I will not look at a map showing me the way to New York. There's two opposite directions. So that's why it's very important to understand and keep our relationship with a foreigner Kareem which is a relationship of somebody who is consulting and looking at a map

00:03:25--> 00:04:11

and wanting to go to that destination now what is the destination that we are looking at? Where do we want to go? That destination is called agenda to fill those will add Alhamdulillah we ask Allah subhanaw taala for his gender, the gender belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala We ask Allah subhana wa Taala as supplicants to grant us Jana, despite whatever we may do or not do We ask Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness, we seek his part and we seek His forgiveness. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us but the way to do that is to follow that map which is called Alcor Anil Karim Allah called the hora al Furqan which is the criterion which is the template which helps us to

00:04:11--> 00:04:20

decide what is right and what is wrong the thing which is which separates the right from the wrong, right. So all of these are issues of guidance.

00:04:21--> 00:04:26

So musala is another story we are looking at all the stories of ROM and especially musar. His story

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

is being told to us so that we can reflect and say what aspects of this story apply to me in my life. The story applies to us beautifully because this is the these are the people who were the Muslims immediately before us. This was the oma which came as Muslims immediately before us. musala salam was a lawgiver like Rasul Allah is Allah sallam. He was a shaibu Sharia he had brought him a law and a book at all.

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

The Torah like sort of brought the horror and Al Karim, which is the final book after which there is no other book. And there is no other razon and no other Nabhi after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam. So therefore, when we look at the story of Musa alayhis salam at the money Israel, this story is

00:05:24--> 00:06:04

a very powerful story and it is the closest to our time, and therefore, it is highly applicable to us the issues in that story, the things that, that Allah told us in the story are issues which are with us to this day. They bless us, they plague us as the case might be. And therefore, it's a very important story, it's a story that we need to listen to carefully. And as I said, I keep on drawing lessons from it. And that's my purpose. And that's the way in which I try to teach. So here we looked at the,

00:06:05--> 00:06:07

at the people of Bani Israel,

00:06:08--> 00:06:13

we looked at what the magicians dude and so on, and then the musicians also became

00:06:16--> 00:06:22

they became Muslim. And eventually, around was

00:06:24--> 00:07:03

compelled to let them go. Now think about that the money so I had settled in Egypt, from the time of Yusuf Ali Salam who was the first person who invited them there. And so they had been there for centuries, literally, almost 400 years. And they were at that time, the numbers that are given to us from the Addis Ababa, Salah, they were about 600,000 men 600,000 fighters, plus women and children. So they were a lot of people, perhaps over a million people or something, they left at night, and

00:07:04--> 00:07:20

the information was conveyed to furano cause he allowed them to go, but, you know, when they actually left, he got very furious, and he decided that he was going to completely destroy them. And this was again, he was breaking his word, because he has given his word

00:07:21--> 00:07:32

that he is going to let them go free. But when they actually started to leave around, you know, changed his mind his he broke his word. And he decided to

00:07:33--> 00:07:37

go back on what he had promised. And he decided to,

00:07:38--> 00:07:59

to destroy them. So he called his whole army he called his people and they came with the with the treasures with the material. This was the way of people of the time when big armies moved, part of their supply chain was they would carry this their stuff with them, their families would be with them.

00:08:00--> 00:08:14

They would have bands and they would have dancing girls and all kinds of means of entertainment and they would carry because they know the idea this is the army and army marches on its stomach.

00:08:15--> 00:08:51

So food was carried in the form of hordes of animals. That was the easiest way of getting it let the food walk you know carry itself let the food walk. So instead of carrying obviously meat they wouldn't carry it would have spoiled anyway. But a grain is regarding that what they would do is they would load grain onto animals and then the animals will walk with the grain and then when the time for eating came they will slaughter an animal they will also cook the the grain so that way you know they that's how they maintain. So this is what they did. They came with all their all their stuff.

00:08:54--> 00:09:48

To Allah Allah mentioned this analysis rather said for advice I will have in a shot on a resume is mila hamari for advice our own we should have been following matara Gemma Anika as harbor Moosa in Madeira Kuhn is very interesting conversation between Busan is alive and his people. Let me complete these ads and then we'll talk about that. valamar Tara germani when they saw the German army, Carla Moosa in Morocco, Carla Kola in Maria Robbie Sahih. Our hanaa Isla Musa Ani Dori biasa gulbahar fun file a call for Ghana kulu. Philippine got all the lousy, well as the left thumb, hurry. Now a lot of other thing here. So they pursued them at sunrise because the money is right.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

As per the instructions given to the Abu Salah Salam they left in the night, and this information was conveyed to the full hour and then he got his army together in the morning.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

They

00:10:02--> 00:10:25

they left the army game in pursuit of the bunnies, right? And Allah said when the two hosts saw each other, the companions of moose Ali Salaam said, Surely we are going to be overtaken this nature of losing hope despairing. Giving up this is a sign of

00:10:27--> 00:11:04

enslavement of the mind. And believe me, it's only the mind that is enslaved, it's, nobody can enslave you, by putting handcuffs on you or putting a chain on your neck. The real enslavement comes from the mind, when the mind is taken over, then you are a slave, no wonder you might be living in great luxury and so on, but evident but effectively, you are enslaved to the one who has possessed your mind and taken away away. And this is what happens to nations which have lived in slavery and in subjugation for a long time.

00:11:05--> 00:11:10

If any of you have read the history of Greece, Athens and Sparta

00:11:11--> 00:11:12

inspired or they had,

00:11:14--> 00:11:41

they had three classes of people, there were the spar Shiites, which were the Spartans, the soldiers. These were men who would be in military training from age six to age 60. And they only did that they did not tilled the land, they didn't do any. They were not artisans, nothing. They were just soldiers, and 24 hours, they lived only to fight.

00:11:42--> 00:12:00

And they trained continuously. They were perhaps one of the fittest, and strongest people that ever existed on the face of the earth. Each one of them was like an Olympic athlete. They didn't they were very, very hard on themselves.

00:12:01--> 00:12:43

They ate very little and very measured quantities. The exercise the old day, they practiced warfare, and they practiced with weapons, and so on and so forth. That's all they did. They did not do anything else. At the age of 30. They got married, they were supposed to have one son, and only then they could leave Sparta and go out in a battle. So this was the norm. Then there are two other classes of people there was one class called the he lots of the healers, who are generational slaves, these were not people who are actually enslaved as in capture from somewhere. These were the sons and daughters of slaves, and they had been sons and daughters of say, for generation after

00:12:43--> 00:13:27

generation, and they will never be freed. So this was a very horrible form of slavery that this part is practice, the healers existed only to serve the Spartans is part and male had seven he lots as his personal body servers. So they build him then they trained him and they massage him and they did, they took care of his armor, they took care of his clothes and his weapons and whatever he needed. The healers job was to do that, and to serve Him, they got no pay, they were no nothing. They were fed by the state. And this was the job seven to each Spartan soldier. And then there were the slaves. And the slaves were people who had been captured from software bots, or whatnot. And

00:13:27--> 00:14:07

they were actually the slaves were actually better off than the Lord. Because the slaves could buy their freedom. The slaves could sometimes be freed if they're, you know, farmed, and whatnot, and they did something good. And then man, their master was pleased with them. The reason I'm saying this is because think about that for centuries, these plots, although in numbers, they were far more than the Spartans. They never revolted. Because the mentality was the enslavement was so strong, this labor to the mind was so strong, that it did not even occur to them that we are it's just sheer numbers. We outnumber these people. And why don't we fight for our freedom, right? If we die, we

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

die. Would we be living like this? is worse than death? So why don't we find never occurred to them, they never occurred to them. They never.

00:14:16--> 00:14:37

They never revolted. And they'll continue to live in this absolute, horrific subjugation. That that is what happened to the bunnies, right in the minds got enslaved because they had been living as almost like slaves. They were not. They were not strictly slaves in that sense, but they were treated like slaves. They were treated very badly by the Egyptians by the

00:14:38--> 00:14:42

people of Iran. And so they had become

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

completely integrated. And their, their minds have been enslaved. So when they saw the army of Iran, so we are dead. We are dead already. Now with these, they will overtake us and they will kill us. They didn't say well, we are 600,000 fighters.

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

Now we are going to give a great account of ourselves and let us see what they do. They didn't get that thought. inductively now muscle is alive, on the other hand is free his mind is free from this he is not enslaved in his mind. And so husar is an absurd no with me is my RAM and He will guide me

00:15:16--> 00:15:33

with me is my rub and He will guide me, Allah, Allah in my RB Surya de Myra is with me, He will guide me now one on one aside on this, think about the time when the solar solar and so

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

on who work together in the in the cave in

00:15:41--> 00:15:45

an era where soldiers are seldom where our workers

00:15:47--> 00:16:27

if they just look down, if I fall pursuers, they're literally standing at the mouth of the cave, I can see their feet. If they just look down they will see us as a source of celibacy his words he said, as an in Allah minor. He did not say Nala hamachi he didn't say why Rob is with me. He said Myra is with us in Allah hamana. Now, this is he said, Don't be sad, don't be sad, don't be afraid. In Allah Verily, Allah is with us. Now this shows also a couple of other things. One is of course, this is the also the fazila of our city. That was also included him in the

00:16:28--> 00:16:51

we include him with himself in the mercy of Allah monitor. But it also shows that our workers in the motherland also saying, you also live they look down they will see us is not the same as the bunnies rising Maasai Salaam, that route will kill us and the army will definitely overtake us. Because the the the the tone of the various rail

00:16:52--> 00:17:19

with respect to Musab was a tone of criticizing, they were saying you are the problem, you are the one now you put us in the situation, we are all going to get killed because of you. Right. So this is now Wheeler. This is their attitude. And this has always been the attitude of bunnies I constantly Moser Listen, I was there to try to help them to get them out of all the difficulties. But all they can do is to blame musasa that got so used to the slavery when others were

00:17:21--> 00:18:02

not blaming the sorceress. And he's only saying this is the situation. So he is explaining and talking about the danger that both of them are face, he is on saying well you are the result of this and you are the reason for this. And if you put me in trouble, no, he is with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he is with him completely and totally. And that is why when the sorceress Allah responded to that he's a lot as an in Allah Hama, Anna, he said, Do not be afraid, Do not be sad. Verily, Allah subhanho data is with us. He did not say in the lava agency, Allah is with me, he lives with us. So however, you know, James Wan, labmd, Allah subhanaw taala rewards those who are

00:18:02--> 00:18:58

faithful to him and faithful to His Prophet sallallahu sallam. And then Allah said then we inspired Moses a strike the sea with your stick, and it bartered. And each separate part of that sea water became like the huge firm mass of a mountain. And there were 12 tribes of Israel. And when Musa a Salaam struck the sea the water with a stick, and those around Adela caused the waves to move a party called the cause 12 pathways to form in the sea, the bass Ryle walked on dry land on the ocean bottom, and the walls of water were on either side of them standing up like stones, I mean, imagine this is the isn't flowing water. But you're standing vertical, and the money slide walked safely on

00:18:58--> 00:19:39

dry land across that part of Red Sea, which they were crossing imagine is one, sometimes you have to put yourself in that situation many times I when I read this, I think I think to myself, how it must be that this sees, you know, stands up like this. I remember seeing a film I can't remember what that film was about. But in that film, this actually and it's not there, it was not the the film on on on musasa and so on. I thought that this was some other science fiction kind of film in which the see actually does this to see the show to see you know, standing up and also obviously all this is

00:19:40--> 00:19:44

computer generated graphics, but it's good to go to visualize

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

and helps visualize just one What kind of a last round as short the money side, such amazing miracles for them to make their faith firm. And that is the

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

I'll do a question. And the end of all that, and we'll come to that they ended up making a calf.

00:20:07--> 00:20:32

Because somebody was the guy who misguided them, they melted down all the gold that they had from the people of Egypt. And they melt, they made a calf. And they worship the scarf, as a very good friend of mine, who's a Orthodox Jew. And he's a, he's also a rabbi. And I asked him this question, I said, you know, tell me, how does how, because they have the same they reading the Torah, too, they have the same story.

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

So I don't know how to explain to me, how is this possible? How did they do this? And he said, he said, Surely I mean, I have no explanation. He said, this is a question that we also debate the whole time and say, how is it that though, even Judaism it's a it's a monotheistic religion, they believe in one God, and who's the Creator, and he has no form at CMC market as as in the belief that they believe in Allah,

00:21:01--> 00:21:11

they have a different name, they call him Hashem, they call me away, and so forth. And actually, they don't call the name in with them. With the Jewish people.

00:21:12--> 00:21:52

Taking the name of God itself, they don't do that out of other out of respect, they say the name of God is such that it is something which cannot be spoken. In normal conversation, they take the name of God only in worship only when they are worshiping, they take the name of the god otherwise they don't. They just say, the creator, the Sustainer, you know, and so on, so forth, the different ways of glorifying lots of our data is very interesting to study other religions. And we have many similarities between Islam and Judaism. As a matter of fact, we have a lot more similarity between Islam and Judaism, then we have between Islam and Christianity.

00:21:53--> 00:21:57

So the to come back to the story.

00:21:58--> 00:22:03

So these people so that I asked him, I said, See, the last round that I showed these people,

00:22:04--> 00:22:09

the Jewish people, the one Israel, so many miracles, I mean, you might know the ocean portrait.

00:22:11--> 00:22:55

First of all, they got freed from from who they had been subjugated by for centuries for generations. And then they, they saw the sea parted. walstad was a water standing up and then there's all the rounds are we drowned in it because the walls fell on top of Iran. By the honorable as you saw all of this, they were good man and Salwa in, in the desert, so they didn't have to work for they didn't have to plant crops or anything, they got free food. They did all they got out of this. And yet they ended up doing something which is haram in their own religion, which is to worship an idol. And but how is it the rapper? And he says, it means that I really I we said we

00:22:55--> 00:22:59

debate this all the time and I we don't know how it happened. Now the reason I'm saying all this is because

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

this is something which is a danger for all of us, which is the tendency to fall into idol worship. Now you may you and I may not be making crafts and worshipping them. But definitely we you know what I know Well, in that in our religion, Islam, which is monotheistic, which is we worship only a lot rather than the farm, the fundamental foundation of our faith is Laila Illallah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, yet we have people who worship graves who make salute to graves who walk around and make them off of graves, who asked help from the people who are buried in those graves, which is completely and totally open ship.

00:23:38--> 00:23:44

That there is no there is no doubt No, there can be no doubt about that. It's open ship, yet we do it.

00:23:45--> 00:23:53

And then we we say, Well, why is the oil are not coming? Now? Why are we in trouble and when you make dry doesn't get accepted? You make the auto

00:23:54--> 00:23:55

you're making the autism creature,

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

whoever that that creature might be?

00:23:59--> 00:24:01

How will we allow it to be accepted by lots

00:24:02--> 00:24:23

of other sisters we need to get serious with our lives that that is why a lot of our data centers gala, Karani, Allah, Allah taught us he sent his his messenger My mother was a seller. So that we understand so that we we learn something right. So do give this some thought and say how is it that I can

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

I can learn my religion and do things which are pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala and not get caught in all this. So then Allah subhanaw taala said then we brought near the others to that place. And then of course they were killed. Now,

00:24:41--> 00:24:54

very interesting. Also, as I said, the money cyl continued to display their lack of courage, even though there were so many numbers 600,000 million in more than half a million. Yet they were

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

they were they were afraid because this was the conditioning of the contract.

00:25:00--> 00:25:20

Then there was never a time when they had they could have they had some self respect before for hours and his people the most miserable and mean of the people of Egypt or the of the Egyptians was status wise superior to the best of the money size so they were they were they were completely humiliated and intimidated

00:25:22--> 00:25:25

by by bunnies, right. So there are a lot rather I said that there is the

00:25:27--> 00:25:39

the Red Sea ease but when the when Israel saw the film's army behind them and the sea in front of them, they immediately lost hope and they blame musala Scylla. Now as I said, I was towards the end of the group

00:25:41--> 00:25:55

at the back because he was like playing a rearguard action. But then when this happened and army of Iran game moves on Islam moved came through, he came in the front and he stood before the sea and

00:25:56--> 00:26:05

Musashi Salah, and with him, his brother how ready salah and us have been no was the student of Musa a Salah.

00:26:07--> 00:26:49

They stood at the bank, the Bani Israel put pressure on him and he said to do something mussalam said, I believe in Allah, and He will guide me now is very interesting. He refused to believe anything else, including what his own eyes could see. He believed instead in the Word of Allah, and he believed in the vibe in preference to what his own his own eyes could see. Now what was the difference between what masala Salah was seeing and what the bunnies I oversee? It was no different. There was both seeing the same thing. They saw the army of around pursuing them. And they knew the man was completely ruthless. They knew that they would be slaughtered to the last of them perhaps,

00:26:49--> 00:27:21

or dragged back in chains as slaves after having slaughtered many of them, and in front of them was the sea and you can't walk over the water there were no ships. How are they going to cross the sea? How are the words escaped this man? I don't on the other hand Musashi Salah, say, Allah subhanaw taala says, I will allow it Allah will guide me Allah said he will guide him. So here was a situation where the world presents to us a certain reality as according to our perception, right.

00:27:22--> 00:27:39

But the moment sees with his or her heart, the moment does not see with his eyes he sees with his heart. That is why the moment believes in the vape in alive in that which is unperceivable because Allah subhanaw taala told us that it is there

00:27:41--> 00:27:46

is the reality of the of the woman for example, when I'm okay with

00:27:47--> 00:27:51

the famous story connected with the Elisa mirage.

00:27:53--> 00:28:03

When I woke up, I was informed of what as soon as a cell claimed that he had been on this night journey. Lisa wall Mirage from

00:28:05--> 00:28:30

Mashallah two buses aleksa to buy MK this, and then from there in the heavens, where he went and until he met Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he returned an all the space of one night when the when they came and informed over a city for the law. No, they said, What do you say this is what your friend is saying? Our city said if he said that, I believe

00:28:31--> 00:29:08

he said that I believe. So they asked him they said you know what is this thing they look at this, look at the story how completely unlikely it is. I mean, how is it possible it takes us months, it takes us weeks and weeks of travel to go from Mecca to Medina even to from Makkah to to Jerusalem because they used to go in there on their journeys days to go to shop. So he said that they said that it you know this way you're not is because you are also you know, you would have taken that undertaking that journey sometime. It takes us weeks, it takes us months to go from here to there. And here you're here. This person is saying that he just went there one night and came back. How is

00:29:08--> 00:29:10

it possible this completely impossible?

00:29:12--> 00:29:13

How do you believe that? So Oh, gosh.

00:29:15--> 00:29:18

You know, I used to be really mortal, this. This is nothing.

00:29:19--> 00:29:52

Because he said we believe in Allah. Have you seen Allah? He said we believe in the Day of Judgment. That one day we will all be gathered before Allah subhanaw taala Have you seen that? He said we believe in the agenda and Jana Jana is an army believe in these things, be it I have not seen the journey I've not seen enough. We believe in this. So believing this, that he took this journey and came back. That's not difficult. What is what's difficult about that? Because if you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the point I want to make for you and remind myself if we believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:29:54--> 00:29:58

Then to believe that Allah can do whatever he wants is part of that belief.

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Because what do we mean when I say I believe in Allah? What am I talking about?

00:30:04--> 00:30:05

What we're talking about who's Allah?

00:30:06--> 00:30:13

Allah? Allah is the one who created everything that exists all that I know and all that I don't know.

00:30:15--> 00:30:23

So what is this world? This this earth, this planet, in the context and in the background of all that Allah created?

00:30:24--> 00:30:33

What is the the status? And what is the position of this world? This the position and status of this world is it is less than

00:30:34--> 00:30:37

a grain of sand on a beach.

00:30:38--> 00:30:43

I'm not talking religion, I'm talking astronomy, I'm talking science.

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

Why do I say that? Because this is what the astronomers This is what these are the people who know, they tell us that if you take the Milky Way galaxy, just one galaxy, if you just take the Milky Way galaxy, the this earth

00:31:02--> 00:31:25

is one small planet, in one of the solar systems in the Milky Way galaxy. In this Milky Way galaxy, there are billions of solar systems like ours, and the Milky Way galaxy itself, in the visible universe is one of billions of such galaxies.

00:31:26--> 00:31:35

So what I was saying, you know, this earth, this is like a dot. I don't know if you've seen that little widget way in very nice little

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

video called the blue dot. I look it up on Go Go to YouTube and look up this thing. It says the blue dot, and somebody says this is on this blue.is everyone I love and everyone, everything I have and so on as long as I have a nice nice, nice way to put it. It's called the blue dot and this blue dot

00:31:55--> 00:31:58

What am I saying? I'm saying that my Rob loves Ronald Danner

00:31:59--> 00:32:01

is not somebody who owns one blue dots,

00:32:02--> 00:32:05

or made one blue.he made everything.

00:32:06--> 00:32:14

All those billions of galaxies. In this particular piece of universe that we know are all we can see.

00:32:16--> 00:32:20

Which is a miniscule How big is that? How big is this universe compared to the rest?

00:32:21--> 00:32:42

It is as big as if you take a grain of sand and hold it up like this in front of and at the extent of your hand of your arm, hold it up, shut one eye and look at it and then you know you're holding it or is the sky that piece of sky which is blocked out by that one grain of sand.

00:32:43--> 00:32:44

That is the visible universe.

00:32:47--> 00:32:51

A piece of sky that is blacked out

00:32:52--> 00:32:55

by one grain of sand

00:32:56--> 00:32:58

held an arm's length

00:32:59--> 00:33:07

that is the visible universe which contains billions of galaxies the size of our size of our galaxy. So what is

00:33:08--> 00:33:14

this Allah della della who I believe in a new believer is the one who created all of this.

00:33:16--> 00:33:30

So how difficult can it be for him jealousy love to change my situation or your situation? How difficult can it be for him to feed you or feed me? How difficult can it be for him to

00:33:31--> 00:33:39

to to take away my pain or my suffering and your pain and your suffering and whatever difficulty that you might be in? Or I might be? How difficult can it be for

00:33:42--> 00:34:00

right? Now on the converse, you might say well, you know it's not difficult for him at all because he's but why I mean why he might ignore me he might not do anything for me. Because who am i i'm not saying well you are nothing that's true. I'm nothing that's true. But Allah will not ignore us and that the the proof of that

00:34:01--> 00:34:08

the proof that Allah will not ignore us is Muhammad Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Kalam of Allah.

00:34:09--> 00:34:16

And I'm not saying this the opposite. We have not seen the Kalam and Moses because Mohammed Salah Salem is the one who got the gala Those were

00:34:18--> 00:34:22

the prophets of Allah Islam gave into this world before the Quran given to his word.

00:34:23--> 00:34:27

I'm not saying before the what I was greeted Oh, it came to how to masala

00:34:29--> 00:34:39

so therefore an Allah subhanaw taala when Allah mentioned the promise of a seller, he said luck on Mon La la la mina is by Safi manasu Allah.

00:34:41--> 00:34:44

Allah said Allah has blessed the believers

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

by sending them a also

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

who what does he do? You actually buy it? who resides for them. My I had

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

My revelation

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

so therefore,

00:35:06--> 00:35:13

when Allah subhanaw taala without our asking, send us a prophet sallallahu Sallam sent us his Gita

00:35:15--> 00:35:22

and taught us how to live that book through the blessed sunnah of Rasulullah the Hadees in the movie.

00:35:25--> 00:35:34

The Quran and the Sunnah are intricate, they're interlinked. You cannot understand the Quran without the Sunnah. You cannot practice the Quran without dishonor

00:35:35--> 00:35:47

if someone says I will just read the Koran I will the Quran is sufficient for me I do not need the addition of resources Allah is talking through is I don't know what you're talking. That's the most ignorant person who started

00:35:49--> 00:35:53

it is not possible for you Allah, Siracusa established Salah How do you pray

00:35:55--> 00:35:56

for another day tell you that

00:35:58--> 00:36:24

so either you have to say the Quran is the book of Allah but it's defective now because it doesn't give me critical instructions are you are forced to accept that Allah Serrano data shows how he wants to teach us and how we want to teach us was he gave us the instruction in the book and then he gave us the methodology in the life of a salsa seller who did it and demonstrated it for us and he said Sir Luca right when you said

00:36:26--> 00:36:27

he said pray as you see me pray

00:36:30--> 00:36:42

there is no there is no escape from this. You can deny those who want to deny it can deny it Nope, no problem one day, you will see it and one day I will see it's my job is not to convince you My job is to just tell you

00:36:43--> 00:36:49

let it not be said that I didn't say it believe it or not up to you. not my job to convince anybody

00:36:51--> 00:36:53

please understand is very very important.

00:36:55--> 00:37:01

So here a lot of our data send this data and he sent in the release.

00:37:02--> 00:37:06

And therefore we our job is to follow

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

Moosa Salam then Allah subhanaw taala short is his hot rods

00:37:14--> 00:37:30

but he's riser oh you will get a skin I don't know I massage like I will go for the Lando did later on was Ali Salam is not believing his eyes he's believing what Allah subhanaw taala told him unless it I will guide you.

00:37:32--> 00:37:39

I'm not saying why God but he was in situation and how will Allah guide me I'm in is probably no No, no, no. It's completely at peace.

00:37:41--> 00:37:49

My love will guide me. Robbie in Arabi Sadie truly my Arab will guide

00:37:51--> 00:37:55

and Allah Subhana Allah guided him I was told in our strike, he

00:37:57--> 00:37:58

hit the sea

00:38:02--> 00:38:04

and the sea party. I think about that.

00:38:06--> 00:38:07

muzzle is

00:38:08--> 00:38:12

the sea parted by the will and the Hong Kong of our last panel.

00:38:14--> 00:38:15

Right

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

Maasai Salaam

00:38:24--> 00:38:25

the

00:38:28--> 00:38:49

Messiah Salam did not just hit this hit the sea with a stick on his own. Well he did that one was monitored. Even after that Allah. Allah said, What through what rock Alba Hara are one in a whole lot right? And I said and leave the sea as it is quiet and divided. Verily, they are a host to be dumped.

00:38:51--> 00:39:11

So Moses did that then the past then Allah subhanaw taala closed the Pharaoh's army again to the misguidance for Iran thought over now imagine think think about this also this other thing which I always reflect on here was a bunch of people who are very intelligent the Egyptians are no fools.

00:39:12--> 00:39:53

They were very intelligent. They were highly technically competent people. Here was musala ceram. They are seeing bunnies right? The sea parted. Now anyone with half a brain will say okay, this is where we stopped right? We wanted to kill these people. We thought moosari Salah was telling lies without these people are out on the wrong path. But right now in front of our eyes. When was the last time you saw the sea partner please excuse me? When was the last time you saw the walls of water standing up in walls? When was the last time you saw people walking on dry land with two huge massive walls of water on either side. Right. So obviously something is happening here. Let us stay

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

away from this. So be VHS them. We couldn't catch them. Now they are in the middle of this thing. Let us stay away. Right. This is what

00:40:00--> 00:40:10

Anyone with half a brain would do or say, because that's the intelligent thing to do. But you know, when you commit shirk, when you want to disobey Allah subhanaw taala, your beautiful brain dead.

00:40:12--> 00:40:33

And you do stupid things. And the biggest the most stupid thing that Iran did was, he said, God, very good. Now we have dry land. And let's also chase them and catch them on the other side, and he put his RV and he put himself into the, into the sea diver. Imagine why would somebody do something so stupid, but he did it. And of course, the sea came down on top of him, and he

00:40:34--> 00:40:39

he was drowned. And then of course, Allah

00:40:41--> 00:40:46

said, well, Angelina musallam Rama Mara, who did you marry some

00:40:47--> 00:41:38

hareem in a visa? Yeah, well, my ex at home momineen. Allah said, and we saved Musashi Salaam and all those with him, and then we drowned the others, which is the people of fear our Verily, in this indeed, is a sign of proof. Yet most of them are not believers. This is the tragedy of the human race. Now, if you don't at the time of drowning, he said, I believe Lai la Jai LA, in LA who know that there is no one worthy of worship, except Allah, in whom the children of Bani Israel, people have been inside believe. And I am one of the Muslims. He said this, but Allah subhanaw taala said, no, that time is over. So the thing also to remember is that

00:41:39--> 00:41:52

if we want to be guided, then we have to also do it at the right time. That we can't want to be guided. And we, at that time, we

00:41:54--> 00:42:10

and at the time, we want to be guided. We don't do it at the right time and we wait too long, then guidance will not come. Have you asked a lot of our intelligence to help us in ways which we

00:42:11--> 00:42:24

we cannot imagine we ask Allah to protect us from shaitan protect us from our own lives and protect us from all forms of misguidance and enable us to lead our lives. obedient to Him was Allah Allah Allah will carry while he was a member of

00:42:25--> 00:42:27

Salah Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
