Hello Renata Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Shara film ba Musa Deen Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi on ID

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

on sahbihi wa sallam,

00:00:16--> 00:00:21

Buse maplelea house and he will be a coverage Jamali.

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

About a ghost, sir LaMotta Sullivan cathedral cathedral brothers just as we come to the

00:00:32--> 00:00:49

closing of the beautiful story of moosari CERAM. And they have been saying this I think almost in every session, it's a story that is replete with lessons for the one who wants to learn.

00:00:51--> 00:00:56

And that is the purpose of all the stories of the Quran not only musasa love story, but every story

00:00:58--> 00:01:09

The purpose is to learn from it. The stories of the Quran, the Quran is not a book of history, it is not a book of science. It is a map

00:01:11--> 00:01:13

of how to lead this life.

00:01:14--> 00:01:16

And so every story

00:01:18--> 00:01:24

in the Koran is meant to teach us this lesson of how to lead this life.

00:01:26--> 00:01:34

My brothers, sisters, Allah subhanho data created this life as a short interlude

00:01:35--> 00:01:39

in our entire existence from the time we were in the Allah will not

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

or even before that in the realm of Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:45--> 00:01:50

to the time inshallah we ask Allah Jalla Gerardo, for his agenda without his ultrasound,

00:01:51--> 00:01:54

when we will be in Jannah and there is no

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

that is a time without reckoning

00:02:00--> 00:02:17

forever in that entire continuum, there is one very short phase, when we will be when we are in a form of existence, which we know as the

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

as the life of this world,

00:02:22--> 00:02:25

very short, but unlike

00:02:26--> 00:02:30

many short things, which are, which can be ignored, which can be

00:02:33--> 00:02:43

which you need not pay attention to this short thing is extremely important. Because this is the only time that Allah's Vannatta

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

gave us

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

control over what

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

is to come ahead.

00:02:57--> 00:03:13

At no other time were we given this control and that is why it is very important for us to use this time wisely. And that is so important that the how to use this time and this time is so important that Allah subhanaw taala did not even leave it to our own

00:03:14--> 00:03:19

fancies and our own thoughts and our own philosophies and our own ideas

00:03:20--> 00:03:29

for each to do what he wanted Allah subhanaw taala centered guidance in the form of his column of his beautiful and park

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

your column and

00:03:34--> 00:03:48

to make matters even more certain, ALLAH SubhanA data accompany in that column with them Dr. Salah with his teachers, with the teachers and with the instructors, who were the

00:03:49--> 00:03:56

messengers and prophets of Allah subhanaw taala and the last and final of them, after whom there is no messenger and there is no

00:03:58--> 00:04:06

profit there is no Navi and there is no soul is Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa de he was abused and

00:04:08--> 00:04:19

all of them came with the same message. La ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, all of them gave us a message Nyla Hello Allah. Wa salatu salam came with advices, Muhammad Rasool Allah,

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

all other prophets came with a message

00:04:25--> 00:04:29

to worship only Allah and to obey that particular message.

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

Whereas, as well as a sort of game, with the

00:04:37--> 00:04:45

same message, but his message was for the rest of mankind, for all of mankind, to the depth

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

and the responsibility of conveying that message to the rest of mankind till the Day of Judgment, by the because of the baraka of the, of the presence of also as a servant

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

Our lives was given to us as Muslims. And Allah segundo Cairo matino Frigidly, Nas, Tamura Bill Maher, oh vivid and how 91 Caribbean.

00:05:12--> 00:05:19

Allah said you want the rest of people's and you have been created for and selected for

00:05:20--> 00:05:23

the benefit of a nice all of humanity.

00:05:25--> 00:05:30

And what do you do? You enjoy and good and you forbid evil, and you have faith in Allah.

00:05:31--> 00:05:34

This is the reason we came this is why we are here.

00:05:36--> 00:05:42

To continue with the story of Jose Sarah we are now at the tail end of it we are looking at was Alison I was passed away.

00:05:43--> 00:05:49

Allah knows how many years past and now this completely new generation of

00:05:51--> 00:05:51

youth

00:05:52--> 00:06:00

which has which is now there. And Allah subhanaw taala appointed for them a king

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

called loot.

00:06:03--> 00:06:12

And this king was a warrior king. And his job was to take the money Israel into Jerusalem,

00:06:14--> 00:06:20

the same Jerusalem which was given to them, but which they refused to enter in the time of musasa.

00:06:21--> 00:06:34

And so that the fact that it was given to them was null and void, which if you do something you it is given to you and you refuse it beautiful, it's gone, the gift is a gift, the gift is over.

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

But Allah subhanaw taala is great Bersih

00:06:39--> 00:06:50

wanted to complete the promise made to Musa Sarah, that his people would be given the sanctuary. And so in the following generation, Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:54--> 00:06:58

give them a king, and he supported that King with a

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

with a miracle

00:07:01--> 00:07:12

so that they would have more faith, and they will know that this king is the king that is appointed by Allah subhanaw taala and not somebody who has usurped that position.

00:07:13--> 00:07:18

So Allah Subhana Allah says, my call, I will be live in a shed on the rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.

00:07:20--> 00:07:31

The Mondays I had gone to the maybe the interview of the time when I was the devil, they asked him to make dua, that Allah subhanaw taala should give them a king and

00:07:36--> 00:07:39

Nova Syrian say that he was the prophet Samuel.

00:07:42--> 00:07:47

I don't know the Arabic name. What that is, and Duluth was the King Saul

00:07:49--> 00:08:09

who was appointed. And of course the one he is right, they had this tendency to argue about everything. So Allah says that their prophet Samuel said to them, indeed, Allah subhana, Allah has appointed Saul is the king over you. And they said, how can you be a king over us when we are better featured than him for the kingdom and He is not being given enough wealth.

00:08:10--> 00:08:15

So for the money Israel for a lot of the way, argumentative people and a very,

00:08:16--> 00:08:40

you know, contrary and very negative kind of thinking, and very arrogant. So and we're talking not about the whole tribe, you're talking about their leaders with it. Very arrogant. So for them, it was like, what, what's so great about you? I mean, I'm better than him. So how do you say he's been appointed? As you see, the same tendency was there in the parish, when Ross was around was appointed,

00:08:41--> 00:09:22

many of the leaders of Koresh and the and also the leaders of dive, they said, What Allah appointed you as enemy? How are you, you know, we are superior to you, we have more money than you are. And the, the, the, the ER, the criterion of judgment always seems to be with people. Dunya is always seems to be only money. As long as your money, you are something if you don't have money, nothing else matters. Compassion and character doesn't matter. Knowledge doesn't matter. Skill doesn't matter, right? Only money. If you have money, then you are somebody who's worthy of,

00:09:24--> 00:09:35

of leadership. And that is why they were in that mess. And that's why we are in the same mess today. Because for us, our leaders, our whole idea of leadership is billionaires.

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

And even though we are seeing what is the state of the world, which has been handed over to billionaires, we are seeing what it is doing right and why it is in this mess. And we don't ask don't ask the logical question which is that indeed if these people are so smart, why is this why is this mess there? Why are we in such a big mess? We are a horrible mess. We have got our

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

All our

00:10:02--> 00:10:03

social moral ethical

00:10:05--> 00:10:39

structure has has been has self destructed has been destroyed. There's this there's widespread poverty, despite the fact that a single person has the has the money and has the ability to eradicate hunger from the from the world, one single person can do it. And that also is a very small part of his wealth. He doesn't have to use it doesn't have to use all his wealth. Well, he doesn't do it. And people want to blame God for this. Now we live in Russia, no, no believe in Delhi. So Allah subhanaw taala said that,

00:10:41--> 00:10:56

illuminating the story, he said, and their prophet Samuel said to them, indeed, Allah has appointed a load Saul as a king over you. They said, how can you be the king, when we are better fitted than him for the kingdom and we are and he has not been given enough rest. So we are more wealthy.

00:10:58--> 00:11:12

And the Prophet said, Verily, Allah has chosen him above you and has increased him abundantly in knowledge and stature. And Allah grants his kingdom to whom he wills and Allah is all sufficient for his creatures needs and all know,

00:11:13--> 00:11:29

to the milkman, Tasha lottomatica, gives to wherever he wants. So Allah gave them Duluth as the king but then they disagreed with the choice. They gave two reasons. He is not from the nobility and is not rich. And this was the nature of the monies right? And it is our nature today.

00:11:30--> 00:11:45

We are racist, and we are ORed with wealth, and we do not place value on ability and leadership. If it isn't someone we consider to be below our status. And we ask what is he worth and net worth is in terms only of money.

00:11:47--> 00:11:53

And that is the worst way of judging the worth of somebody to say how rich is this person? Absolutely.

00:11:55--> 00:12:04

Then we said to them that Allah subhanaw taala had chosen Duluth and given and knowledge and strength. Both of these things depend on the job Caliban valleys of Elana was appointed to general

00:12:06--> 00:12:17

but Abu Bakar Cydia de la was the Khalifa so it said depends on what is needed for the job. Not every job needs the same setup.

00:12:19--> 00:12:21

Same set of resources talents,

00:12:22--> 00:12:25

then that we said to them, that

00:12:27--> 00:13:07

in proof of in evidence of appointing todos as the king Allah subhanaw taala will show them a miracle akala Wirkkala home NaVi home in IATA Mulki Yeah To co Tabuteau V Sakina. Don't mere rugby become appear to me Metallica and Musa while Haruna D'Amico hole Mala ICA to in fee thy Licata Ayatollah Ayatollah Khomeini minute and the prophet Samuel said to them Verily the sign of His kingdom is that there shall come to you in a booth, a wooden arc, a wooden box.

00:13:09--> 00:13:42

Wearing his Sakina is BS and reassurance from Europe and some Assa some remnants of that which Musa alayhis, Salam and Harun I said, I'm left behind some signs of the of the greatest of their Obeah sorry Salam, and heronry Sir, and this will be carried by angels verily in this is a sign for you if you are indeed believers. The miracle was that they are Tabitha masala salaam would be delivered to Bani Israel by angels as a proof that Ruth had been appointed as the king

00:13:43--> 00:13:54

that was set out with the army. And he wanted to test his soldiers. This is one of the signs of a wise leader that he checks who are with him.

00:13:55--> 00:14:12

And if you do not do that, you end up with being sabotaged. And your mission being sabotaged and you do not achieve what you set out to achieve. And this is a believe it's a very harder, hard earned and very painfully learned lesson.

00:14:13--> 00:14:20

That if you do not check the quality of your followers, then you will fail.

00:14:22--> 00:14:52

So that was sent out with his army and wanted to test the soldiers to see their ability to sustain a long run battle. He wanted to make sure that he had people who were tough enough to fight so he tested them. He made them march through the desert until they were thirsty and exhausted. Then they had to cross a river where he said to them whoever drinks from this stream is not from me and whoever does not drink is from me. Except drinking a little bit in the hollow is had water for them be this this or for this this room here small.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

out of 80,000 who came with him only 4000 were able to pass this test so he left behind

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

76,000 He told them go, didn't take them with him. He wanted people who could endure hardship. On the other side, some of them said, we have no way to fight juggles. But believers who are sure of meeting Allah, and who were

00:15:17--> 00:15:46

who had the, you know, the real Islam in them. They said how many times have we seen a small group defeat a large army, by the order of Allah said we have seen this so many times, a small group will beat a large army, because Allah with victory and defeat comes from Allah Subhana Allah, you do your preparation, but have Tao Quran Allah, they do gamble, but don't have faith on the Hallelujah one.

00:15:48--> 00:16:16

Double Quran Allah, when Allah, Allah wa Jemen don't have to occur on the roof of the cat will have to occur must manage data. And if you do that, but Allah insha Allah will give you victory and they said we have seen so many times, still you have no faith. So another guru failed. Now out of this whole 4000 only 314. And of them remained with me and this was the same number of senior said to the same number as the Sahaba who fought with us. In the

00:16:18--> 00:16:19

in the eyes of the mother.

00:16:21--> 00:16:37

We companions are actually worse than having only a few people like in her in the new Muslims ran first and the first sign of threat. When Duluth faced the army of gyros, he now turned on this monitor, because he understood that this is something where

00:16:39--> 00:17:11

you did your best like a sorceress didn't bother. He did his best. After that he stood up and he said yada yada yada. You promised me victory give me victory. If this if this group dies 330 of the day, then there will be no one to worship you on the face of the earth. And he made his dua until August this was Delano. He saw him he exclaimed crying before was monitor he said bus Yaroslava Angel Allah Swatara will definitely fulfill his promise to you. So sit down, is doing the same thing. Cater to Allah subhana wa Tada. And

00:17:13--> 00:17:40

because he knew that it's not your strength and patient that you depend on, you depend on Allah subhana wa you use the means first to prepare and then you face the enemy, you turn towards Allah subhanaw taala and asked for his help Rasulullah Susteren prepared the Sahaba for battle and then he turned to Allah subhanaw taala and made da so also the soldiers of Tao Taluk they asked Allah to cover them with summer May.

00:17:41--> 00:18:36

Allah said Allah for salata, who will you know the call in Allah buta de comida. Her family Jerry Berman move Allah is I mean a woman lamea DOM Hoover in Yahoo mini Illa Maria, author of a word for them.

Allah humara saw VD while I'm

00:18:43--> 00:18:50

or have been out for a while anus lover or a bit of a lava no one so now I'll call me Luca V.

00:18:52--> 00:19:03

fossa Home Basic bit Father Moon be the Neela aquatera Jo Jo Jo Merkava Lake Mata while mo him

00:19:06--> 00:19:16

well hola hola. NASA baritone Bertil fossa, the law in bufalin. Allah mean

00:19:18--> 00:19:22

Allah says, in Surah Baqarah, from 249

00:19:24--> 00:19:58

to 50 and 251. Allah said that then when jallo saw on set out with the army he said, Verily, Allah will try you by a river so whoever drinks they're off he's not on me and whoever tasted does not drink the taste tastes it's not he's of me except him who takes their off the hollow of his hand. Yet they drank their of all except a few of them. So when he had crossed the river, he and those who believe with him, they said, We have no power this day against Janet Angelou was Goliath

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

Who was the famous warrior of the Philistines? And he was very well known. He was a great warrior was a huge big man.

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

And he was a general so they said we have no power is Dre against jello and his horse but those who knew with certainty, this is where the issue of your fame comes in.

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

That they were to meet there.

00:20:24--> 00:20:28

They said we are going to fight 100 If we will, we are

00:20:30--> 00:20:36

we will be victorious and if you don't win, and if you die then we are shade. So what is the problem? Geeta takasi

00:20:37--> 00:20:38

NATO shape

00:20:41--> 00:21:21

but those who knew with certainty that they were to meet the rub, they said how often a small group overcame a mighty host by Allah's leap, and Allah is with a summary. And when they advanced to meet jallo Goliath and his forces, they may die they said Laura pour forth on US patients and make us victorious over the disbelievers beating people over the disbelievers a frivolous referral is like poor electronic bucket you dump something so totally, completely washed over the summer, which is visions with steadfastness. So they're outed them by Allah's Leave and Tao le salaam killed John Ruth.

00:21:22--> 00:21:26

And Allah gave him doubt the kingdom after the death of

00:21:28--> 00:21:41

silent Samuel, though there is a lamb was given both before until then there was an IV. And then there was a king, the two separate people and without the reasonableness Martha gave them him and his sons.

00:21:42--> 00:22:04

And law gave both of these both the kingship as well as the Prophet. And hikma gave them the kingdom and and Hickman and taught him of that which he willed. And if Allah did not check one set of people by means of another, the Earth would indeed be full of missing, but almost tell us full of bounty to the enemy, which is the

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

all the

00:22:07--> 00:22:13

agenda the mankind and everything. Donald Allison said, Who will go out to face jackboots

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

because this was one of the

00:22:19--> 00:22:38

strategy of the War of the of the of the medieval times, when you would have before the actual war, or actual battle happened, you would have champions on both sides, who would challenge each other and there would be this fight between one or two people and three people or something like this. And

00:22:39--> 00:22:43

this was a it was also a it was a strategy because

00:22:45--> 00:22:50

in some cases, if that the side for which, that didn't go too well.

00:22:52--> 00:22:56

Give up that dishonor. So you saved a lot of lives. Otherwise,

00:22:58--> 00:23:19

also, it was something which was, you know, boosted the morale of the of the winners. Yeah, there was this, but it was something which was, and again, if your champion could take care of the champion and kill it, then one very important person in that army would be out of the game. So they used to do that. So here, they're Jabu this

00:23:21--> 00:23:28

dilute Goliath, he came out he stood in front and said who is there to challenge me and everybody you know, people are making a big noise

00:23:30--> 00:23:49

and then a young man with a hammer the slingshot. He came out he said, I will do it. Now Donald looked at how young he was and he asked somebody asked for somebody else but people were afraid when they saw jello, they said we have no chance again is bad. So nobody came after asking three times thorough permitted

00:23:51--> 00:23:52

the young man to go

00:23:54--> 00:24:05

I have done a lecture specifically on this called the lessons leadership lessons from that was really set up so in the next class inshallah we will.

00:24:06--> 00:24:11

You will, you'll see that lecture also. Very, very important lessons to learn from this.

00:24:13--> 00:24:19

He asked that he jello then he went out to jello though the wrestler and

00:24:20--> 00:24:31

jello laughed and he said goes and he said, oh boy, you are a kid. Go send me a warrior. I don't want to kill you. But the young man said I want to fight you and I will kill you. And

00:24:32--> 00:24:33

he then

00:24:34--> 00:24:37

you know, they used they had the slingshot, which is not like the

00:24:38--> 00:24:57

de Valera which used they they had, it was a long piece of leather. And in the middle of that was a was a, like a pouch the way the leather was made. So they would put a stone in that and then fold it and they would swing it and then they would let go one end and this thing would fly.

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

This link

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

shorts are actually in draw type, which is talking about maybe

00:25:07--> 00:25:09

maybe 500 years

00:25:12--> 00:25:21

maybe later we actually don't have the word after Marsalis and type in drama time the Romans used to use this slingers, a slingshot

00:25:23--> 00:25:38

Stinger as they call them, they use them as the front of the battle, they were they were you, javelins and this because the slingshot was very, very lethal. It was literally like, like, like a gunshot

00:25:40--> 00:25:43

because when it was with a sling it and they shot it.

00:25:44--> 00:25:46

This the sneakers were extremely,

00:25:48--> 00:26:06

they were extremely accurate. And when they swung their thing and they threw it, then it you know, literally sort of hit the guy where wherever they were aiming and he dropped dead. So this this is also this shows us you know, you should know your opponent should know

00:26:09--> 00:26:24

the power of his weapons because the here the in this case doubt, Elisa knew what he had and jello they hadn't seen that had never seen a slingshot. He was looking at the boy say What's this kid will do? What What will this kid do to me, whereas that boy, he knew what he was about.

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

And so he shot him with a slingshot and he killed him. And

00:26:32--> 00:26:34

that was the end of the war, money. Israel

00:26:36--> 00:27:24

overcame those Philistines they entered, they entered Jerusalem and that started their Golden Age under thou, Ali Salam and Solimar Islam. But the foundation of that was laid in that one battle with 314 soldiers, I'm the truth, just as the Battle of other brother set the foundation for the era of Muslims. Now the leadership lessons from now that Islam is six. One is that you have to take the first step, if you don't step forward, nothing will happen.
