fill out another human hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala shortfilm ba when serene. Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah Allah Allah Allah He was he was salam does Lehman Kathy on cathedra from abajo, my brothers and sisters, we are on the
among the closing sessions of the
series of classes on lessons from the lives of the MBI limo Sara, and
we are looking at the life of moosari Sarah,
one of the richest of the lives of the Gambia, richest in terms of the lessons that it contains for those who are interested in learning from the life of one of the greatest of the prophets and messengers of Allah subhanaw taala.
There is a if you if you think about the to Gambia closest to us or Eliza I seldom you have easily Salam who is the closest and then you have Musa Lee Sarang who came before he said Sarah,
interestingly, if you compare
great messengers and prophets of Allah, Isa Ali Salaam and moosari Salaam with Russell Nisa salaam, with the Sierra, you find that as well as Ross Salem, resembles Musa Ali salaam, much more than he said, he said, for example, as soon as ourselves birth was a novel birth, like any human being is born, he had both parents.
He grew up in various kinds of tests and hardships and so on which he faced throughout his life.
He worked, he had a business, he ran a business, then he, he got prophethood. And after he got prophethood, he was
subjected to all kinds of difficulties and tests from his people from the Croatian from the other Arab tribes of the ages. And then he married, he had children, and then he
died in normal death. He also Salallahu Alaihe Salam is the Sirisha he came with a book. And he came with a complete way of life and a law.
If you look at Musala, CERAM, all of these things apply to him. He was born, he had parents, both parents, he grew up,
fears, different hardships, declared prophethood, he married he had children, and he died a natural death. And he was also a cyber Sharia. So I will get up as soon as 714 battles beside each other important battles. So all of these things that are similar between the these two messengers and prophets almost matter. He said, he said, on the other hand, had a miraculous birth. He said salaam had no father, he was born off his mother. And that's our who is Isa even in Maria, and not the name of a father because he or no father is almost mandatory created him as a sign of him. His is one of the Ayatollah.
He said, The Salah, no unmarried is lesser and didn't have children. He said Islam did not bring a specific Sharia and a book he said Islam came to reinforce the Sharia of Musa Ali Salam, he came to reinforce the Torah, he came to reinforce the laws that musasa had brought. So there is a lot of similarity
between these two, and he said Islam did not die a natural death, he said Islam was elevated and saved from
being crucified, which is what they were trying to do to him. And Allah subhanaw taala saved him and he is with Allah subhanaw taala and when it is time, Allah subhanaw taala will send him back and then He will fulfill the normal
conditions of a of a man of a human being, where he will marry and then he will die a natural death.
So this is the just as a as an aside, something that you might want to think and reflect on in terms of similarities that we have with the
with the NABI of monies right? And that is why Soros says that we are the last Omar and Omar before us is the money's right. And now Mr. Trump said you will, you will imitate them and you will follow them. If they went into one lizard hole you will also go into the same little desert hole May Allah protect us from from doing this these are
this is not to be taken as a
as something that has been imposed on us but it's
Something that Russell Russell Russell warned us against. And he said, Do not be in a situation where you fall prey to such things. That's why we need to keep ourselves alert about these matters. We were talking about the lessons that we learn from his life was Ali Salam. And we were at the point, the last class of him standing before for our own and therefore the lesson we learn that is, apart from Torkoal, which is at the level of excellence on the left, we also learned the lesson of understanding that nobody can help or harm other than Allah subhanaw taala
not fit on other Ilala. So no matter what force is arrayed before you in terms of those who seek your demise, and those who seek to harm you, there is nothing to fear, because their force and their strength and their wealth and their abilities, compared to Allah subhanaw taala, who is the creator of the sustainer and the maintainer of the entire universe is not even worth talking about. There is no comparison. There isn't. It's not something that we need to give even a second thought to. And that is a very, very important thing to keep in mind and to understand.
And we see this, this reliance on Allah subhanaw taala, this complete trust in Allah subhanaw taala this manifestation of courage, based on the knowledge that only and only Allah subhanaw taala can help or harm anybody, all of this we see in the beautiful life of Musa alayhis salam. And these are lessons to be taken from that life. Then we see Musa alayhis salam and his dedication to his Deen to his people. The dedication to Allah subhanaw taala we see how Ansari CERAM lived through the difficulties that he faced and again, one of the similarities between a visitor Salaam and moosari Salaam is that their own people
who are the one who oppose them and who caused them difficulties, I might even win this case of Musa feront already and the Egyptians were already against him. They were his declared enemies. They were Muslim Islam had enemies within his own people among the money Israel themselves. So one of the how similar that is to our case to the case of the Muslims, and how similar it is, we see signs of this in the life owner which are sort of himself. For example, one of his greatest enemies was His own uncle, his flesh and blood, His own uncle, I will have and his own aunt, the wife of Ebola.
For for many years, one of his greatest enemies was Abu Sofia. And later of course, he became Muslim he became an overland Oh, but for a lot of long part of his life. So a lot of people who oppose the surah salsa, number his own people, his own family, his own people, and so on. So in the case of Musa Sam he had Chiron was wrong, the people are Musa alayhis salam and many other people in the money Israel they
opposed moosari Salam samedi created you know he actually started idol worship back again. In the among the money's right anyway so this is Musa al Islam faced all that. And then so the lesson we learned is how can we remain steadfast on the path that Allah subhanaw taala has chosen for us, no matter what happens never get discouraged never get never
lose hope never abandon your work
no matter what
you know happens and when the case of Musa is alive imagine I sometimes think you know the the hearts of the Gambia how much punishment they can take. If you think about that, a hero Musa al salaam, he spent his whole life he completely dedicate his life to freeing the bunnies, right from the clutches of around from the slavery of around and Allah subhanaw taala promised them the Holy Land. He promised them you know Jerusalem and the environs of Jerusalem. But after freeing them from Iran, they refused to enter the promised land. They said they they said Tozer is our view and Europe go and fight. We are here.
We are going to sit here and watch.
I mean, physical pain is one thing but how much more painful is this spiritual pain?
Imagine how sad moosari Sarah must have been how grief stricken now you
Even even you know, sorry and ashamed before Allah subhanaw taala you're giving this thing and my people don't want it. La Villa hotel are not as if they had something better, they had nothing.
But this is the this is the
the burden of of leadership, right burden of leadership is to continue in your effort, no matter what happens,
no matter who's with you or who's not. So this is a huge, huge lesson we learn. Then we have the lesson, where musasa now is along with his people is he at the Bank of this see?
And the army of Iran is coming in full strength behind them, obviously with the intention of completely decimating and slaughtering, perhaps every living person that
and they were more than capable of doing that, right.
Now Musa Islam standing there, but you do not see
any sign of fear, any sign of hopelessness, any sign of
of, you know, discouragement in musasa. Even though his people themselves they said to him, they said you are going to get us killed. Mr. Ravi
he three but the museum imagine this is so disgusting. It is so important and it's so disrespectful.
That is nobody of theirs. This Rasul of Allah frees them from the clutches of Iran something they would not even have dreamt off. And he brings them and they say but you are going to get us killed. I mean, is that why he did it? Is that why Allah subhanaw taala freed them from around so that they will can be killed by Pharaoh on the bank of the Red Sea.
But think about again, the lesson for us is as I told you, we are not here to Baton money sell. We are here to take the lessons from that.
And the lesson we learn is that when our faith is tested when we are trying things and then we find a difficulty what happens to us how many of us simply abandon everything and we say La Hotevilla This is the NIV I'm finished, I am lost, or you say I'm the lamb I rub geladeira if I just think back in my own life, how many times did Allah subhanho wa Taala help me? Where was I from there to here Allah subhanaw taala brought me Did he bring me all the way here so that I will die
he's like a friend of mine. Her tagline is I did not come this far to come this far.
I didn't come this far to come this far. Meaning I'm not at my destination. I am still continuing on my journey.
Somebody asked a wise man they said how do I know when my when my job is over when my when my given a task is over? He said if you are alive it is not over.
If you are alive it is not over
and this is the lesson we learn Musa Islam continues Musa is arrives at my robe is with me.
And this is another
contrast. Musa Samson, myRA is with me.
And the solos are Salamandre Vokera Cydia for the Renault when they were in the car, without
that we set ourselves in Allah ma. He said, Verily, Allah is with us with him and oversee the for the law. This is how and which also included his Omar in any blessing that he got from us
now, the lesson we learn therefore is that we do not lose hope. We never lose hope no matter how
unreasonable that might see. No matter how much adversity we might face, no matter how many enemies are arrayed before us. We never lose hope because we are Muslim. We are standing there next to Musa Ali Salaam and we are seeing what sorry salami seeing which is the holder of Obama's marathon.
He said my run promised me he's promised me that he will save me from this and he will say we have no doubt what is.
So we learn this, this lesson of complete and total faith and trust in Allah subhanaw taala.
And what helps to to develop that is to reflect in our own life
and say, How many times did Allah subhanaw taala help me and every single one of us has not one we have multiple incidents where we will help balance Maratha
then when Musa is the cross
See and so on and so forth.
And after that the lesson we learn is what
we say what the salary did.
Amazon is Allah was called to bounty
and he was
he was with Allah subhanaw taala in his 40 days or ethic if
in that period
the summary got the one Israel to
make a calf out of gold and he got them to worship that
the what are the lesson for the lesson for us is that one must never relax.
One must never relax one must never feel that okay, I'm all set.
I'm a Muslim I have I am on Thursday they try to practice Asana as much as possible, and nothing can go wrong.
Even the Masuda Delano said follow those who are dead.
Follow those who are dead. They asked the what is the meaning of that? He said the ones who have who lived on Islam and who died with Eva. These are the people who are safe
but anyone who has him no matter how well and how good that person might be, that person is not safe until he dies or she dies with email.
Only when they are have died with email then they are saved because then they are beyond the reach of shatter.
There's a famous story of Imam I have been humble I'm Allah Tala. When he last moments when he was dying, his son Mohammed bin Ahmed
have to lie around tonight and I was sitting with him and he saw his father would was a state of Nevada he would be he would lose consciousness that he would regain consciousness. And every time he regained consciousness, he says Not yet Not yet.
And Mohammed Bin Hamad Al Hamdulillah He said, I got worried I say what is this happened my father when and in his last moments, you know what is happening to him? Why is he saying Not yet? Is he afraid of death or what?
So he asked him he said my father, why are you saying what is not yet?
My mama said Don't you see who is here?
He said, Who's your recent releases here? And he's telling me oh, Ahmed, you have escaped me. You have escaped me. And I'm telling him Not yet Not yet because I'm still alive.
Only when I die with him and then inshallah I have escaped.
So this story of Musa Islam teaches us that because you have other one is right, many these people are people living people like us it is not as if they were all evil people who are not evil people.
They were ordinary human beings, like you and me.
And they were people who saw the miracles of Allah Subhan Allah, Allah Allah subhana wa Tada at the end the muscle is Sarah and not one is a multiple miracles
Allah Rata vet them is mana and Salah in the in the in the desert
the very fact that they saw the sea parting and 12 passages being made in the sea with dry land and with the water standing on either side like walls.
Imagine I'm just thinking about these things ever. You can't blame those people who sometimes you no wonder and they say well you know how is it possible and may Allah protect us from these people lose their faith?
Because it sounds so so so you know, fantastic.
Until of course you realize that if you are thinking about Allah subhana wa Jalla Jalla DeLallo then what is difficult for the one who made water
to get that water to do something which it does not normally do.
So they saw all of this, yet they fell into the trap of the salary and they made this cough
and they started worshiping the scuff.
So lesson is never relax.
Continuously renew your Eva continuously keep fighting to make sure that your Eman is intact.
You ask Allah Subhana Allah was the but we ask Allah for consistency we ask Allah subhanaw taala for,
for to keep us on the path of righteousness, the path of steadfastness. You ask Allah for strength in our event.
Then we see the lesson we learn, which I mentioned before is when these people they refused
The Philistines who were who were occupying Jerusalem.
The big lesson here is that even though the Navi was with them and this is not any NaVi is Musa Ali salaam Kalevala
the one who Allah spoke to and the one who spoke to Alex van Altena
even though the abbey was with them
Allah's route that I said to them Go and fight and I will give you victory.
Allah subhanaw taala would simply vaporized all the Philistines and said okay, now Jerusalem is is clean, there it has been sanitized walking. Know.
The lesson here is that in this Allah molars BB if you want success, you have to work for it no matter who is with you, no matter how righteous you are, no matter that you are on the right path.
effort must be made.
Without making effort, you will not get it. And in the case of bunnies rise, they refuse to make effort. There is no we can't fight we will we will not fight those people are, are very strong.
So they became they were they became cowards. They refuse to take action, even though they had the Promise of Allah subhanaw taala head
and Allah said, Okay, if you don't want to fight, I will not give you the reason, I will not give you the way that
as I mentioned to you, we have a in the life of a salon for example.
His whole life is a struggle.
Why did he need to struggle?
Why did he need to struggle?
He could have simply made dua for anything. And Allah subhanaw taala would have granted it
without a doubt.
The whole idea is to teach us to say that if you want to, if you want something, then you have to do something.
Nothing happens by its own, with nothing happens on its own by itself.
So you see that lesson.
Then we have the story of Musa alayhis, salam, and Regina.
And all the lessons of that story.
This the fundamental essence of that story is that there are things that happen
in the world, which we do not understand.
But they happen not accidentally. They happen because Allah subhanaw taala has the wisdom, and in his wisdom and his and in Allah subhanaw taala his scheme of things, that is the best thing to happen at that time. And so Allah subhanaw taala enables that thing to happen. Some of those are painful as we see in the story of Musa and Islam some of those are painful.
when you have trust and faith in Allah,
that Allah subhanaw taala will see you through those difficulties.
You also see that if you are righteous,
that Allah subhanaw taala will
guide you and help
the boatman were righteous. So Allah sent because early syrup to save their boat
to saved in a unusual way
by making it effective, so that it temporarily it was not operative. But in the long run, save the livelihood.
The boy was killed again, because the parents were righteous and Allah Swatara did not wish to give them the pain and trouble that his boy would have brought.
But look at it from the perspective of the parents. They don't know all this.
This is what was early salaam explained to Musa is even Musa Islam didn't know this on his hours. Because he said I'm killing as a small boy and he said, What is this? How can you just kill somebody like this?
Because he didn't understand he didn't know what was happening.
So we see this, that Allah subhanaw taala takes care of the righteous people that these parents were I just saw Allah subhanaw taala saved them from a lot of pain and suffering potentially, and give them something better. Similarly, the wall which was conceived which had been built by the righteous Father, to conceal the treasure which was under which was beneath it.
Allah monitored it took care of the orphans even though the parents were no longer there. But Allah subhanaw taala sent a special envoy to ensure that that treasure, which was meant for the orphan children would be intact and safe, and it would be given to them at the right time.
These are lessons we learn.
So this is the life of Mussolini.
And these are all the lessons that we learn from his life.
The final lesson that we learn is and Musa is a
guide without seeing success, because his people did not cooperate with him
until he was understand this, that even though you may not see success, it is not because of what you did or didn't do.
It can also happen because of others in the scheme of things, who had they supported you, then Allah subhanaw taala would have opened those doors.
The our understanding of Qatar of Allah's Mandela is that it is not something which is willy nilly, driven and forced on us. Allah subhanaw taala gives us choices, to open doors, and when we open a particular door, then what is behind his door is the color.
But we are not compelled Allah does not forces Allah knows what we will do. That's a different issue. Because Allah subhanaw taala knows the future unless one knows us he graceless.
But Allah is not compelling us, Allah is not forcing us
to make this or that choice. And that's the reason why we are responsible for our choices, we will be rewarded for the choice or we will be punished May Allah protect us. If we had been forced into the choice, then we could not legitimately claim or record a reward. And nor could we be punished. Without that being unjust. In both cases, because we have no control over this.
It's involuntary thing.
But that is not our understanding and concept of copper in Islam. And that's that's the reason why it's very important to be
content with the color that Allah subhanaw taala has written for us in readability that will be readable color is the biggest
wealth that we can have.
Because that's what gives us contentment cannot
be satisfied with what Allah subhanaw taala has given you, by all means make effort for more if you want.
But before you make that ever asked yourself, Why am I why am I asking for more?
Why am I asking for more?
Because if I if Allah has given me sufficient for my needs, why do I want more to do what?
Now if there is a good reason? For example, I want more because I want to be able to do more more good work, I want more so I can give more charity, I want more because I want to establish a organization which is iconic to represent and showcase Islam, you know, maybe it is now again remember this is not a matter of semantics is not a matter of making up some reason. Just because you still want to chase the latest car or the or the you know, latest whatever, right? No.
You're looking at genuineness, dude, what is really what is the NIA in your heart? What is the genuine real reason why you want to do this?
There's a famous story by the CIA. We'll end with this. Where as I became a seller, and he said Yasser Allah Azza wa sallam, please make dua that Allah has given me more wealth.
No sooner Salah Sana refused. He said, I will not make this dua don't ask me for this.
But he was very insistent. He said, No, no, please, please make do I want more wealth. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to give me more when remember he's not talking about Ramadan.
Surah Surah Salam made device Oh Allah give him more with.
Now this man had some sheep and goats and cattle and so on. And then when the do out and wa salam happened this man's animals and multiplied he had lots and lots of animals.
And he became very wealthy now, first casualty of that was that he stopped coming to the masjid for five times of Salah because he could not any longer live in the house that you live in which was close to the masjid because he had all these animals so he had to go out of Medina
to a place where he could accommodate he had enough land to be able to accommodate all these animals. So he did that he started living there and therefore his presence in massages and Ws Sharif and his opportunity to pray behind all sorts of salaam was the first country
Anyway, that happened after that, it was time for Zagat. And we're, so the collectors of psychiatrists went to him
to ask for his aka. So, he said how much they calculated for him and they said so much.
Now, obviously, because he had a lot of animals as I got the amount also was fairly large, the same amount in percentage would save it.
So, the man said, Oh, but you know, I struggled so hard to make up all this and so on and you are asking for so much. So these people said no, we are not asking for anything. This is what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed, and you know this as well as us, will you give or not? So he said, No, I will not give well let me think about it and so on. So they left.
Now when they came back, they reported the matter to us. And obviously that was the job. So they came back and they said, Yes, Allah we cannot we could not collect data from this man. Because of this.
The solar system didn't say anything.
In the night, the man himself realized that I have done something very seriously wrong. I have. I sent away the collectors of zakat who came and so the next morning he came to as soon as salam with the number of animals or whatever it was, that was due to him, due from him and he came and he said, Johnson, I have come with mezakeh rasa sallam said Allah and His Nambi are not in need of yours, take it away
so he had to leave.
Before the next year the cat was due Rasulullah seltzer passed away.
He died. Our Garcinia Fidella know became the Khalifa.
And when that happened,
came very early. As soon as the cat was due 12 months old, this man came and he came with the right arm which was even bigger than the previous amount. And he gave us a this is for the miser card for the state of the law said when Rasul Allah is Allah, Allah Allah, Allah did not accept from you I will not accept from
right to do what you want, I will not accept
that man died without being able to pay zakat because nobody would take it from me.
So never asked for width.
Ask for Afia even numbers for the allowances that his father
must be able to tell him along he asked me so tell me yes or teach me a DUA. The best one, as soon as I send him said Ask Allah law My name is Luca Nadia, Allah I asked you for
to contrast this with another story. Just to reinforce the point.
There was a zombie when to home
for not mistaken I think it was mad bingeable Adela who went to him to kill him.
And when he calculated the whole thing, what was due from him was a baby camel, a small
image or baby cow.
The man said, this is the first time I'm I'm able to pay soccer. I have not been able to pay the car all my life because I never had the money. This is the first year that I have enough money to pay as a car. Instead of a baby camera. He said What will you do with a baby camera? It's a liability. Instead of that, I would like to give a full grown female camera
which will be of benefit.
So please take that.
my big brother said look, I cannot take more or less whatever is due from you I can take only that much.
So the man said What shall I do? He said now he said he said to me he said wait tomorrow Rasulillah Salam is going to be you will come in this place and he will be camping in your area you can go and ask him
the next day the commandment of Islam Salaam and he was there he said yes Allah, you're the car collector came to me. And this was a story I ordered a baby camel, but I would like to give more I would like to give a full grown female camel. Because the first time things like that I don't feel satisfied that either I'm giving only so little. I would like to give more I see that see the contrast between the two people. There's one who
isn't reluctant to give what is do what is for and is another one who wants to give more because he said the half my lot my job is so much this is not enough.
I was a hamdulillah Inshallah, your rub will accept this. And he took the cat
in the name of Allah.
So these are all the lessons from the life of Musa alayhis salam I do not claim that these are the only lessons
May Allah smart Allah grant has the wisdom and ability to seek more and more. But these are the lessons to the to the best of my ability that I was able to share with you. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us a trophy to live our lives by these lessons. The whole point of this is that we live our lives. According to the lessons we learn from the Quran and the stories of the Quran relating to them the animal Salah we ask him as Rotella to enable us to do that, to give us the wisdom and the persistence and the sustenance to suffer the strength to live a life which is pleasing to Him general masala will carry on. Well, it he was I remember I had to go to what I mean was salam
aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
