just live on Kaziranga sera formado my brothers and sisters,
the light Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala Alhamdulillah has given us this beautiful Kitab his book The Quran, Al Karim and the best of teachers. Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Holly who was able to sell them, to teach us
the way to live this life.
And in this Corolla, Renata told us the stories of people of the past, so that we can learn from those stories, and we can extract the lessons from them and apply them in our own lives.
And one of the finest and greatest of those stories and one of the most detailed of the stories of the story of Sally Sullivan, his people, the man is right.
The purpose of the story is for us to understand it for us to apply to ourselves and say, what is it that we can learn from this story, which will be beneficial for us?
Allah, Allah told us the story and said that the bunnies Ryle
refused to enter Jerusalem
and the Holy Land which was given to them, and they refused it.
And therefore Allah subhanaw taala then punish them.
By making them wander in the desert for 40 years.
I remind myself when you that when we invite the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala, we should remember that the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala can be very severe.
The meaning of 40 years of wandering in the desert, is that one entire generation of people
seized to be one entire generation of people was wiped out.
And the reason this happened was because they invited it on themselves. It's not that Allah subhanaw taala wants to destroy us better give them what they wanted a lot further. relieve them from the suffering of being the slaves of
fate of the pharaoh in Egypt. Allah subhanaw taala delivered them from Egypt and last round Allah gave them the wealth of the Pharaoh, for the Pharaoh, from the wealth of the phononic people. And Allah subhanho wa Taala then gave them the Holy Land as their place for them to settle.
And what did they do? They refuse that they did not enter the Holy Land, even though
that had been promised to them.
On the other hand, they were arrogant about it and they told Oh, sorry, salaam, you and your up go and fight. And we are going to sit here and watch.
Now obviously, these are not things which benefit These are not things which will go
unrewarded in the context of,
As we know Allah subhanaw taala does not punish without cause. Allah Subhana Allah forgives and forgives and forgives. But when
we become rebellious, and we refuse, we refuse to listen we refuse to obey, then the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala can come
and when it comes, it is severe. The meaning of wandering in the desert for 40 years is that one entire generation was replaced one entire generation was wiped out. And that generation included musala Hassan himself
musasa never entered Jerusalem even though he never saw Jerusalem Rasul Allah Salim said that in the on his journey of his rival Mirage he passed by the grave of masala Salaam, which was outside the wall of Jerusalem and Maasai Salam was praying in his grave, or sorceress him saw him praying in his grave. Divine Salaam informed him that moosari salam said to multiple mouth when medical both came for his soul, he said, Take me to a place where I can see Jerusalem, take me to the wall of Jerusalem and then there take my life, so that I can be buried there. And hamdulillah These are some special favors for the Gambia Lima Salaam alone. And those he who those who Allah subhanaw taala
wants to reward Allah rewards and therefore Allah smart Allah
give Musashi Salaam that so he is buried outside the
wall of of Jerusalem.
But Allah, Allah even in his punishment, he did not just allow them to perish even though they were wandering in the desert for 40 years Allah subhanaw taala give them food and give them water and these were also miracles This was given to them in miraculous ways.
So that they would praise Allah subhanaw taala and thank Allah subhanaw taala for the bounty that he was giving them so last word that I said
they asked Musa Salaam when he say they asked
anila give them lots of shade in the desert I mean imagine having to wander around in the in the in the extremely hot sun. So almost one caused clouds to share the wings rail as they walked and he gave the mana and Salawat
which is full drummer from the from heaven, and he gave them water unless rantala mentions this and tells us the story.

Well, my scanner woba will be have also been mean a lot he's early can be unknown can we have 401 RBI de la jolla ko tolonen NaVi NaVi Aveda will have got the early Gabi miles. So
achieved the mentality of people. And we need to reflect on ourselves. As I keep saying all the time. The purpose of these stories is not entertainment, it is not to
talk about other people. It's not to point fingers at them. But to point a finger at ourselves and say what is it that they used to do that we also do in our lives?
And Allah data showed us what happened with them.
So if we are
going to do the same things, why do we imagine that we will be left alone.
In this case, Allah subhanaw taala saying and remember when Musa alayhis salaam asked for water for his people, we said strike the stone with your stick, then gushed forth from 12 Springs.
Each group of people knew its own place for water, eat and drink of that which Allah has provided and do not act corruptly making mischief on the earth.
And remember when you said almost we cannot endure one kind of food. So invoke an MC da to Europe for us to bring forth for us of what the earth grows.
It's Herbes. It's cucumbers. It's foam, which is wheat or garlic. It's lentils and it's onions.
And he said would you exchange that which is better for that which is lower, go down to any town and you will find what you want. And they were covered with humiliation and misery. And the drew on themselves. The Ross of almost ran out that that was because they used to disbelieve the ayat.
The proof and the evidence of Allah subhanaw taala and they killed the prophets wrongfully. That was because they disobeyed and use to transgress the boundaries of Allah subhanaw taala.
Now the important thing is to understand from this
The lesson that we learn is the importance of sugar.
The importance of being
The issue is not the kind of food
but the importance of being grateful dollars manage data, and to understand the cost of being ungrateful for the format for the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala.
The money Israel did not make sure to let us know that, for all the blessings that Allah Subhana, Allah gave them
and we're constantly ungrateful.
So they were punished.
I think about that.
Let's see what they did. First and foremost, what always strikes me is the tone of
their speech, how they used to speak
about Allah subhanaw, taala and moosari, Salah.
They didn't make God themselves,
which is understandable if the NaVi is there, you asked an average My God. But when they went to ask him to make God, their tour always was you ask your ROM for this.
So just by the tone of voice, they are distancing themselves from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Instead of saying, please ask our
they say you ask Europe
so that the corruption begins right there.
they are not grateful. And they are not Cognizant and they are not.
They seem to be unaware of the blessings that have been given to them.
Now think about that.
That here were people
who despite disobeying Allah,
because they had been sent to Jerusalem, Allah Subhana Allah gave them
Jerusalem and Allah
you know, awarded it to them, but they refused it, and they refuse to enter it.
So Allah subhanaw taala as I mentioned before, the punishment was that they were wandering in the desert. But even in that punishment, the mercy of Allah subhana wa that is so brilliantly clear
that there is a cloud which sheds them
they're not exposed to the heat of the sun. Allah subhanaw taala sends them Manawa Salwa, which were special foods from Jana.
Now, we will get into all kinds of you know, complicated
conjectures about what exactly was mana and what exactly was Salwa and then somebody said it is partridges and quills and somebody said it was you know, some kind of
plant extract and I, the point is, is the whole issue of understanding the stories of the Quran one of the most important things is, is not to get involved in unnecessary conjecture and
unnecessary inquiry about things which are really of no benefit even if we find out exactly what Bonanza was. How is that going to help us today? Tell me
so don't waste your time because this is from shaitaan shaitaan will try to deceive you in one way or the other. And one of the ways One of the favorite ways that shatter has of deceiving people and taking them astray, is to involve them in useless questioning even with the
so on the on the face of it you are reading Quran you are trying to understand the Quran and then jetan will put some thought in your mind and now you are wondering, oh I'm talking about this as I will have and there is a dog now what breed of dog was it? Now Was it a small dog? Was it a big dog?
What do you what I will do with that that information? Even if you get the information what what good is it?
We already know Allah subhanaw taala mentioned people were used to have this argument about how many of how many of the people how many of the what was the number of hours How will
you know was it so much so many are so many in so many Allah subhanaw taala could have told us clearly there were so many. He didn't say he said Allah Allah said Allah knows the number.
The point is that getting involved in useless discussion is from chapter two. Don't do that.
So here was the view of the bunnies right the being shattered by a special cloud which for which, you know, travels with them. As they move, they're being given money and Salwa,
they saw the miracle of muscley salaam, striking a rock with a stick on the hug of Allah subhanho wa Taala and not one but 12 Springs come up.
And these 12 springs that come out each of the each spring is for one of the tribes, the 12 tribes of Israel.
And Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala gave them that and he gave them that in a way where
and this is also from from the hikma Davalos, because Allah knew these were quarrelsome people and if we gave them one spring, then they will fight over it. So I was rather lucky. Okay, each one of you have your own spring, Allah said they had they knew their place on that spring. And so Allah says, Now, eat and drink and be grateful to Allah Subhana Allah don't make mischief on the earth. So what do they do?
Here? Look at these three miracles. Three blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala happening to them simultaneously.
And what is their reaction? their reaction is Oh yeah, that's right. What do you know I wish I had some pickle. I wish I had some garlic. I wish I had some onions. I wish I could
lentils. I wish I had wheat and this and that.
So food from Jana, which is going to which you couldn't possibly have even if you wanted it. This is clearly a blessing and mercy of Allah subhanaw taala I think about that, that food is coming from Allah as a gift, which means that you will not have any dessert over this gift.
There is this beautiful story in the zira where one day it was a extremely hot day in Medina. And when we talk about the Llano came out of his house and he was he was very, you know, hassled
because of the heat. So he came out of his house and the Sahaba they loved him so much that in every situation, whether it was happiness, whether it was you know difficulty or sadness or whatever
their first thought was, let me go to a sewer line or a salad with this. So say Rama came out of his house and he was walking towards the budget he met a walker acedia for the long run the way
we asked him is a very when he said I am hungry. I'm very hot and it's very hassled, I can't sleep, I can't do anything. So I am going to 00 I'm also going to see Russell licensor. As they reached, Masuda Nawaz Sharif and that is where Russell's house was next to the masjid. They saw him coming out of the mosque David Zaragoza jasola Where are you going? He said
I'm so honored and humbled and I'm hungry so I just came out of my house. This idea is Allah We came to see you for the same reason. That's what I said. I said, Okay, let us go to Abu been sorry Are there lanos house so they went
now when they weren't avoidable. sobre la was not wrong, but his wife was home she invited them inside they
sat down and as they sat down avoidable, I'm sorry, are they long game he was absolutely delighted he was so happy to see it also relies on Solomon his two friends is to have the ability to his two most illustrious companions with him.
So he immediately slaughtered a lamb
and gave it to his wife to prepare the meat and he went into his
dead orchard. And he cut a bunch of dates which had arrived dates and semi arrived rates and green dates all on the same bunch. He brought that and he brought some his his garden had had a well with the beautiful cold waters he brought some water so Russell's Salah when his companions they have asked him he said Why did you cut the whole bunch? He said yeah so light has all kinds of dates on it. So I brought it so that if you want to eat some green dates, they are there if you want to have some semi live dates, they are there and if you want to have ripe dates there also there
is for the love of the whistle celebrate. They loved him so much. So they he brought all this. Meanwhile, while this while they were eating this. The lamb was prepared. Avoid one sorry galanos
she made bread. And so they brought this bread and he brought the bread and the meat. And also as a sudden took two of these,
of these breads, two of these, you know,
almost the roti. And he put the meat into that roti.
And he folded it and he said to say that
he said take this and give it to Fatima she has not eaten for three days. And this is that this is a lifesaver as far as salam, the most Beloved of Allah Subhana Allah Allahu Allah that I would have sent him
after on his mother's and food, whatever his little girl in her in her room and these were out of season fruits Allah, Allah gave the bunnies right Manasa could you send food processor, the whole idea of these things is to make the life of the province arise as a beautiful live example for us to follow.
So this happened and then the
rest of the meters one resource element is companions and they all ate and when they finished
Allah subhanho wa Taala will take us out for this.
Allah will ask us to account for this
over Garcinia Delano and say the nonverbal satara de la who they were shocked
right they were shocked. He said he also loved we were so hungry and we were thirsty and you know we were in this heat and Alhamdulillah Allah smart Allah gave us this food, but we will be asked for this. The reason why will you not be asked? Was it your right?
Was it your heart that you should get this? This is the net worth of another this is the blessing of Allah subhanho den
and he said thank Allah subhanho wa Taala then Allah subhanaw taala will not question you about this.
our brothers sisters I cannot even begin to emphasize the importance of making sure
we need to thank our sponsor hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah hamdulillah Allah gave us this life just sit down every day and write down 10 things as soon as you wake up in the morning write down keep a paper pad notebook next to your next to your bed. And when you wake up, write down 10 things
that you need to thank Allah for on that day today. What are the 10 things that I need to thank Allah for today?
Write them down. Right?
And doesn't matter if you have to repeat every day. For example, in this COVID times, I was speaking somewhere and I said to people I said please take two deep breaths
I said to do with Yes How did you feel nice
as a tag Allah subhanaw taala for this because of people who are dying of COVID in the ICU is of hospitals. What are the dying of respiratory failure they cannot breathe.
They cannot breathe and you are able to breed. With handlers Ronda handler, unable to breathe.
untangles rattle data that at least we living here are able to breathe clean air. There's no pollution there's no smoke there's no dust. Beautiful clean air.
Every morning as I go to the in the morning when I get out of my house and I'm going to the masjid
I Tagalog around there birds chirping this. Sometimes you see the stars in the sky Sometimes the moon is still visible. As a big huge oak trees I walk under them is so beautiful. Is our humbler hamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala has granted just this environment
right down on your bed 10 things that you need to be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for
as I'm sitting here recording this the road outside my house
for the last half an hour Not a single car is passed. There's no noise
so much peace and calmness. This Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah hamdulillah
instead of thanking Allah what is the bunnies Red Berets legend yeah okay this is for private is coming but how can we do the same thing every day.
So he says the muzzle Islam go please make dua for garlic
Iranians the habit of whatever
you want to ask for something which is lower when you are already getting something which is better.
And this stuff, go to a go to any village, go to any town, you will get all this in the market you don't need to, this will not come from Ghana. The point I'm making is what Allah gives us a gift Allah will not hold you accountable for but what you have to do for yourself, Allah will hold you accountable for so here are the people that getting a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they can enjoy it and they can eat it and they can be happy with it.
And then there is no accounting.
Instead of that you want to go and buy your own stuff, spend your own money, or grow it or whatever.
And then be held accountable for it.
We all have these things, they just show a lack of faith, a lack of a lack of understanding.
And so as I said, we covered the virtualization
because they drew on themselves the anger of Allah subhanho
Nadella said that they disbelieved the ayatollahs rantala, they killed their profits wrongfully and they
transgress bounds. Now, as I said, the point of all this is for us to reflect on it as a where and how does it
affect me that how do I Where do I come into this? And how do I come into this? Because we this is this is ours. I mean, this is the reason why we are being given
you know, these things,
we've been given these
for us to
think about and for us to
correct ourselves right.
So that is the point that
I want to make for you, and ask you to think about this and say, what, how does this apply to me? What is it that I am doing
is like what the bunnies right used to do? Because the the point of all these stories is that it's the same thing, right? That we
that we correct ourselves. And as we understand that we don't do the same thing that that people before us did. So if you think about today and say what, when we monitor conversation, one of the one of the best ways of getting a doing a reality check
is to monitor our conversation. So if you monitor our conversations, just think about it and say what do you hear more of? Do we hear more sugar? Or do we hear more complaints?
Right, your organization monitor organization when you speak, what do you do more of? douce be more thankful dollars rather than? Or are you complaining about this and that, whether it's the weather, whether it's the economy, whether it is the government, whether it is your family, and children and wife and husband or whatever the case might be? What comes out of your mouth? Is it more gratitude?
Or is it complaints?
ideal is 100% gratitude and zero complaints. No matter what the situation. I just told you a story about the situation of Rasul Allah Sora salams. himself and his family and his best companions.
If there was anybody who was entitled
to some special treatment values, rather than these were the people
but what are the special treatment they got? They got hardship.
But what of what is on their tongues? The sugar of Allah Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
they're not saying Oh, but you know, I didn't get food for three days. No.
You can focus on the fact that you did not eat for three days or you can focus on the fact that you're eating your your filter now. Your choice
No those Arizona ministers Alhamdulillah Allah Cooley Hall.
We know his times.
If he had vote,
after Salah whether he would come
And he would say is there anything to eat
any one of his wives, whichever wife he was staying with on that day. And if there was food handlers, she gave him the vote and he thanked us for that and yet, and if there was no food, he would say I'm fasting.
Even that his way of dealing with no food was prayer, which is fasting.
My brothers and sisters, the idea of all these stories is for us to learn from it. And the lesson that we learned from this part of the story of Musa al Salaam is to be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala we thankful to Allah as well. So I invite you and I advise you, my and myself, let us consciously think of the blessings of Allah Subhana Allah that He has given us
and constantly reinforced, reinforce that and be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala for those blessings.
ask Allah to be pleased with you and never to be displeased was Allah Allah Allah will carry while Allah He was a member of the garden with him it was the Ramada como rahmatullah wa barakato.
