00:00:01--> 00:00:04

Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala ala

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

Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does live in Kaziranga sera from abajo.

00:00:14--> 00:00:17

My brothers sisters Salam Alikum rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

The topic of today's lecture is lessons from the Quran.

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

I want to say two things to you.

00:00:27--> 00:00:28

The first one is

00:00:29--> 00:00:31

that the key to leadership

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

in any field

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

is to differentiate.

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

Because differentiation creates brand,

00:00:42--> 00:00:43

brand

00:00:45--> 00:00:46

inspires loyalty.

00:00:47--> 00:00:49

And loyalty enables influence.

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

Without differentiation,

00:00:54--> 00:00:57

you are one grain of rice in a sack,

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

you're still rice, but you are one grain in a sack.

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

Nobody knows you live,

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

nobody cares if you die.

00:01:07--> 00:01:11

But when you differentiate, then you stand out

00:01:12--> 00:01:15

and on the basis of what you stand out for.

00:01:16--> 00:01:20

And that brings me to my second point, the basis on which you stand out.

00:01:21--> 00:01:25

That is what enables you to create a legacy.

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

And so the second point

00:01:29--> 00:01:41

of leadership, the first one is differentiation. The second point of leadership is to be concerned about something other than your personal welfare.

00:01:43--> 00:01:49

It is the nature of animals to be concerned purely with their personal welfare.

00:01:51--> 00:01:57

As long as I have enough grass to eat, as long as I've got enough meat to eat, as long as I want, my belly is full.

00:01:59--> 00:02:03

Add the most I'm concerned a bit about my own.

00:02:05--> 00:02:10

My own family, whatever, you know, hobbies.

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

But beyond that there is no concern.

00:02:16--> 00:02:22

There's no concern for anything other than that. One of the one of the finest

00:02:24--> 00:02:39

places to see that is to watch one of the videos of the Great Migration across the Serengeti plains, 2 million animals, zebras, wildebeest, and all kinds of how he was

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

moving from point A to point B.

00:02:44--> 00:02:53

And they are followed these herds of followed by rides of lions, by hyenas, by leopards, by cheetahs.

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

And obviously, they take

00:02:59--> 00:02:59

from them.

00:03:02--> 00:03:04

But not one in that herd

00:03:06--> 00:03:10

even looks at one of their own numbers being killed and eaten.

00:03:11--> 00:03:28

The lion can take a wildebeest in the middle of the herd, and sit there tearing it apart, completely safe without any danger whatsoever, from the half a million Willoughby's which are passing it.

00:03:32--> 00:03:42

So being concerned only for yourself or only for your immediate family is a sign that you are an animal

00:03:44--> 00:03:47

to be a human being you have to be concerned about more than that.

00:03:49--> 00:03:52

To be a leader, you have to be concerned about far more than that.

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

So two qualities of leadership, one is differentiation which creates brand. And the second one is concern for others.

00:04:06--> 00:04:07

The house is related to the Quran.

00:04:08--> 00:04:18

This is related to the Quran because Allah subhanaw taala gave us example after example, after example, and I'm going to use only two or three of them because we don't want to spend the whole night doing this.

00:04:19--> 00:04:24

Allah give us example after example, after example of his MBA was Salam of his prophets,

00:04:25--> 00:04:32

who demonstrated these two things. They demonstrated brand and they demonstrated concern

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

for excellence.

00:04:37--> 00:04:55

I want you to put yourself in a position which I'm going to describe. You heard this story from me before but this is the beauty of the story of the Quran. You never get tired of listening to them. And they're so beautiful. They're so full of learning for those who have the heart which is

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

connected with Allah Subhana den. So I want you to put

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

yourself in that position.

00:05:02--> 00:05:04

And what is that position their position is

00:05:06--> 00:05:20

young boy, maybe 14 or 15 years old and there are many of you here who are either that age or a little couple of years this way or that way and under the law in this ethic of what really inspires me frankly,

00:05:21--> 00:05:26

and makes me very, very happy is the number of young people who are here.

00:05:27--> 00:05:33

Well, I bless you May Allah protect you melos valterra use you for his deed and accept you in his body inshallah.

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

So, young boy like this, like one of you,

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

but he's not hanging out with his friends.

00:05:42--> 00:05:43

He's not playing some game.

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

he's by himself

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

in the wilderness,

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

he's come out of his town.

00:05:52--> 00:05:54

And he's talking to Allah.

00:05:56--> 00:05:58

He's talking to a lot of out there.

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

And what did he say?

00:06:02--> 00:06:09

Allah subhanaw taala liked what he said so much that Allah subhanaw taala made that a part of his column to be recited unto the Day of Judgment.

00:06:11--> 00:06:25

So Allah subhanaw taala told us what what he said. Allah subhanaw taala said I was wilhemina shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Ye the call I Brahim warabi de facto he'll

00:06:28--> 00:06:38

call to mean all Allah Bella kill Leah two main call be all of our Bharata Amina

00:06:47--> 00:06:55

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

Allah does it.

00:06:59--> 00:07:03

And remember when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam said

00:07:04--> 00:07:13

Allah be ireenie Myra show me gave her to heal Mota. How do you give life to the dead?

00:07:15--> 00:07:19

He didn't say Mayra Tell me. Myra explained to me No, just show me

00:07:21--> 00:07:36

that this conversation is so beautiful every time I read this if I sit and reflect as one law What a beautiful conversation this is and how this conversation reflects the connection between this little boy and he's not jealous.

00:07:40--> 00:07:52

The Creator of the heavens and the earth and all that it contains and all the universe and all that it contains and all of it we know and all of it we don't know is talking to one little kid

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

he's talking to one little kid

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

he's not a Navy yet.

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

He's talking to his one little boy

00:08:07--> 00:08:12

and this conversation is so beautiful. It is so full of love it is so full of knowledge of each other.

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

It's such a reflection of closeness

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

we are in a fourth wheel motor.

00:08:24--> 00:08:30

DIRECT address. Ella show me how do you resurrect the dead how to give life to the dead

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

and see the response to that

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

call out to me

00:08:39--> 00:08:41

LS is what you don't believe

00:08:44--> 00:08:44

you don't believe

00:08:48--> 00:08:56

and then how does even have La Silla? How does it respond? kalevala Well, I can know yet why in the world like in Nigeria get my in?

00:08:58--> 00:09:01

Well, I Kyla Well, actually, yes,

00:09:05--> 00:09:06

of course I will.

00:09:07--> 00:09:10

But just so that I have more it will not have Michael

00:09:12--> 00:09:13

so that I have

00:09:18--> 00:09:29

laser Navarro como una. He said the report the information is not the same as seeing something as experiencing something. The two are different.

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

Somebody says fire burns,

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

information, correct information.

00:09:39--> 00:09:40

But put your finger on the

00:09:43--> 00:09:47

same thing. But now you're experiencing that. Is there a difference between the two?

00:09:52--> 00:09:56

So here is what I'm saying. Show me. Carla says Don't you believe?

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

I believe Yeah, of course. I believe

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

Please show me

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

Viet Minh Nickleby, for the winner of my call.

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

Now,

00:10:12--> 00:10:23

Rosaura Solomon he read this is he used to say, Ibrahim had to say if Ibrahim alayhis salam could say, Leah in Nepal we we have even more right to say that.

00:10:26--> 00:10:30

So the lesson from from the Quran about this up to now is

00:10:32--> 00:10:36

to be concerned about the connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:38--> 00:10:54

not just entertainment and you know, my friends and I hang out No, no, no. Who's your best friend? Alice Rihanna, they're not friend in a sense of human friend with no friendship as far as our last concert. The wilayat have with Allah subhanho wa Taala. When I when somebody says, Allah,

00:10:57--> 00:11:06

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Xena Amano. bhagavato Allah said that for the Olia of Allah,

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

there is no fear and there is no

00:11:10--> 00:11:14

sadness. And who are they? They are people of taqwa.

00:11:16--> 00:11:19

I live in Amano. cambiato people have human and we will have Taqwa

00:11:21--> 00:11:29

to the delight of Allah subhanaw taala is not friendship as in a human sense of allies of Allah subhanaw taala is to be in a position where Allah loves you the most.

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

The moment the favorite slave of Allah.

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

That is the delight of Allah Subhana Allah.

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

So,

00:11:40--> 00:11:47

in the case of Ibrahim Ali Salah, this conversation, so now what does Allah Allah does this take for birds

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

and tame them?

00:11:53--> 00:12:04

Now is what I this is the thing which I always say when we read the Koran because reflect Allah subhanaw taala said this and you heard the ayat in in Tara we also have Allah tada Bernal Quran.

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

Allah say don't they reflect on the Quran? Allah didn't say don't they read the Quran? Allah do not don't they reflect on the Quran?

00:12:14--> 00:12:26

Allah, Allah, Allah or is it that their hearts are sealed? Or the locks of their hearts? So understanding is in the heart, and that comes from reflection. So here Allah subhanaw taala is

00:12:28--> 00:12:37

now whenever Islam said please show me Allah is giving me instructions now to reflect on this I take four birds and tame them. How can you take four birds and 10

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

you can't get

00:12:41--> 00:12:46

adult birds. And if you get another bird you can't tame it. wild birds are wild birds.

00:12:48--> 00:12:53

So what is the meaning and Allah didn't say put them in cages because those words have to come flying back

00:12:54--> 00:12:58

to free flying. What does it mean? My understanding is it means

00:13:00--> 00:13:10

go find a bird which is young. To find nests of four different birds Allah didn't say take four chickens roaming four different birds.

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

So find four nests

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

has links,

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

get them, feed them, them them.

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

They become fledglings.

00:13:24--> 00:13:25

They learn to fly.

00:13:27--> 00:13:32

Then you tame them so that they that when you call them they come to you. All of this takes How long?

00:13:34--> 00:13:42

It takes weeks. Won't take years, but definitely takes several weeks, maybe a couple of months, maybe more.

00:13:43--> 00:13:58

And then Allah subhanaw taala say that this is the beauty of Allah subhanaw taala is examples and so on Allah subhanho wa Taala deliberately creates a situation you will see it in other places also in the Quran, which apparently looks completely impossible

00:14:00--> 00:14:12

because Allah subhanaw taala his purpose is to show you his father his power and glory. So if Allah subhanaw taala created something which was which looked possible anyway then after listen to that, you might say Nigeria, that's true it can be done.

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

So unless one other creates a situation which is so completely impossible that you say Well no, this is impossible, there's no way to do that. And then a lot of it

00:14:25--> 00:14:35

so Allah says take these four go meaning raise these birds, then them they come and when you call them then what you do is you slaughter them

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

you chop them all up into small pieces. You mix all that up

00:14:42--> 00:14:52

so now you don't know which words foot it is and which words heritage or which words interesting it is and which word heart It is and which words further it is and you don't know because everything is mixed up like

00:14:53--> 00:14:54

you know human

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

and then not complicated enough. Want to complicate it even more.

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

Now what must you do? A lot of others now make it into four separate lumps. So for this device, you know two kilos Okay, why am I going to do for several then it's not complicated enough now What must you do it doesn't matter just take one of this mixture climb one mountain go put it on double and then come back take the other mixture climb another mountain we'll put it on top of that now take the third one and do it on a third mountain the fourth piece on a fourth mountain now go and stand in the middle of the of these waters and call the birds and they will come to you

00:15:40--> 00:15:47

imagine what kind of possibilities Have you chopped you kill them you chop them up you mix them up everything is all you know.

00:15:49--> 00:16:07

And then you separate them on four different mountains I mean in this lump is probably the you know one bird there This bird is got interesting missing or it got gotten what missing and that stuff is on some other mountain Ah, Allah subhanaw taala is great the situation which is apparently completely impossible in Alaska. Now I will show you what I get.

00:16:13--> 00:16:15

This is the meaning of the connection with Allah Subhana.

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

And what comes out of that,

00:16:22--> 00:16:27

out of that comes the kind of you're keen on Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:16:29--> 00:17:11

We're now the same boy has grown. He's a young man. And there's a whole long story. And you all know the story. I won't talk I won't relate the whole story of challenging his people about who they worship and trying to convince them that worshipping idols is not a great idea they can't do anything for you is all things that you have created in your own mind. They have no reality. The only one worthy of worship is the one who created you don't worship something that you created, worship somebody, the worship, the one who created you, and so on. And this is a losing argument, this is getting nowhere. Nobody is this listening to him, and so on and so forth. And finally,

00:17:11--> 00:17:18

people get so mad at him that they said oh, we have to kill this man. And regardless, we just don't want to kill him. We have to burn him.

00:17:19--> 00:17:42

So now they Stoke this fire, they have this enormous fire that they create. And this fire is so big and so massive that they can't even walk close to it. So there is no how to how to throw him into a vehicle you have to throw him in the viar toe you have to go close to the fire We can't do that. So we are going to put him into a siege engine into a trebuchet and tie him up and then shoot him into this fire.

00:17:44--> 00:18:18

So imagine this whole thing happened it was fire being stalked and so on so forth would have taken days and then they would have got distribution and then you can imagine those people who are firing the troubleshooter they're taking some arranging shots to make sure that the that he doesn't fly over it or something you know, you want to make sure you dropped in the middle of it. They maybe they're taking arranging shots and stuff. They've done all that now everything is ready. Of course the whole town everybody's gathered this is the this is the happening thing that's going on going to happen now and we're going to see this fitna of revival is being ended once and for all and in the

00:18:18--> 00:18:21

magnificent ways that we throw into the fire that's it has

00:18:23--> 00:18:35

now trussed up completely and like everything bound up and he's put into this cup of distribution and all that remains is for the person at the back to chop the rope and his catapult will throw him into the fire.

00:18:39--> 00:18:46

At that moment gibberella A Salam comes to Burnham la sala. And he says yeah, Abraham Tell me what can I do for you?

00:18:47--> 00:18:48

How can I help?

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

Who is this right?

00:18:53--> 00:18:57

This is the one who asked Allah subhanaw taala Rebecca to real Mota

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

who is coming to him and saying please tell me how can I help you? So from the perspective of the Sharia there is nothing wrong with that. If somebody comes and says, tell me how can I help you I will tell the person I need this is nothing wrong with that near to the person standing there in front of you when you're talking to that person happens to be an angel so what

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

what what is the prime minister

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

says you

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

he says I don't need anything from you.

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

I don't need anything from you.

00:19:33--> 00:19:34

Why will ask you?

00:19:35--> 00:19:39

When I can talk to my rock gelato and tell him to heal Mota who do I need?

00:19:41--> 00:19:54

When I can ask my Rob, how do you give life to the dead and he tells me all of these things. He tells me do this. And I actually observed that I saw that. I don't talk to anybody else. Why do I need anybody

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

give me a round

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

round.

00:20:00--> 00:20:15

Back to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah because Allah is watching all of this happening. Allah does not need any more information, but you will listen, I'm going to Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, but I mean, your family, your messenger, your nabee, your soul is about to be burnt to death.

00:20:17--> 00:20:20

I went to asked him, can I help you is a talk to me.

00:20:21--> 00:20:26

Alice Valdez now go to him, tell him I sent you. And I am asking him, What does he want? Probably.

00:20:29--> 00:20:46

This allows Martha's also, again, the love of Allah subhanaw taala for Graham and Isabella, of course knows what he's going to say before he can even think of that. These are. But these are the things that almost valterra does to set up evidence in favor of his favorite people.

00:20:49--> 00:21:03

So liberalism comes back to Prime Minister I remember all of this is happening in terms of time that we can't even measure because we are talking about interdimensional travel. So our time and space doesn't apply.

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

You might say, well, how long does it take from that does that thing doesn't apply? This is a different different ballgame altogether. Different Islam comes back and he says, Yeah, Ibrahim, I am now here on the order of Europe. Jalla Jalla Lu, and he is asking, What do you want?

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

What do you want from him?

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

What is very literal?

00:21:28--> 00:21:31

Even even Islam says my Arab does not need to ask.

00:21:34--> 00:21:38

He doesn't need to ask, What do I want? I want whatever he wants.

00:21:39--> 00:21:40

He didn't say that. I'm saying

00:21:42--> 00:21:43

What do I want? This is the meaning of reliable,

00:21:46--> 00:21:59

reliable, that does not mean that I asked for something and I get it a nice Oh Allah I'm so thankful that God hamdulillah thank Allah subhanaw taala but risiville Casa is whatever you decree for me, no matter what it is. I say Alhamdulillah Allah.

00:22:01--> 00:22:16

Let me say the service was Alhamdulillah Allah kuliah All Praise to Allah in every situation. A situation that I like Praise to Allah situation I don't like Praise to Allah situation that is nice for me Praise to Allah situation that is painful for me Praise to Allah.

00:22:18--> 00:22:21

You will have a lesser observed by Rob does not need to ask.

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

What does it mean? It means whatever he wants I want

00:22:27--> 00:22:32

What do you want? I want whatever you want. You decide what you want.

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

You want me to burn I'm ready.

00:22:37--> 00:22:38

lovable Sheila, no problem.

00:22:39--> 00:22:41

You want to save me You can save me

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

whenever I

00:22:47--> 00:22:48

remove

00:22:49--> 00:23:03

the as Bob from between himself and the Musab people as Bob whenever I removed the makuu from between himself and his agenda general Allah subhanho wa Taala directly addressed the fire no more gibril

00:23:05--> 00:23:14

elisse Allah, Allah subhanaw taala directly address the fire and de luz that whole na yeah na Cooney burden was Salah or Allah Rahim

00:23:17--> 00:23:19

Allah do not say to yourself now save him

00:23:20--> 00:23:25

Allah did not say to me Kyle is now sent down rain so that the fire is cooled

00:23:26--> 00:23:27

put out the fire

00:23:29--> 00:23:38

Allah did not send to somebody did not say to somebody when they shoot him and he's flying through the air pick him up from there and take him away somewhere else. No, no, no, no, Allah does not need all this.

00:23:40--> 00:23:46

Allah does not need all this allowance choice for Allah wants to show that the fire can only burn if I tell it to burn.

00:23:48--> 00:23:49

Keep your fire

00:23:51--> 00:23:58

burn your virus toga var meget as hard as you want makes no difference. It will only do what I tell it to do.

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

The fire has no power to burn water has no power to drown.

00:24:06--> 00:24:08

The air has no power to lift anything.

00:24:09--> 00:24:12

The ground has no power to bear any weight.

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

No disease has any power to affect anybody.

00:24:17--> 00:24:22

Nothing has any power, except Mayra Jalla de la la la la quwata I love it

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

so whenever I when I sell I'm removed as well from between himself and his Robin he says

00:24:30--> 00:24:37

whatever you want I want almost vanished as a school now Yeah, nah, Cooney burden was Allah. Allah Ibrahim

00:24:40--> 00:24:44

the cut the rope, even when Islam flies through the air into the fire.

00:24:49--> 00:24:53

Where are you guys now? You're standing in the crowd. You're watching this happening right?

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

So what do you see the crowd doing? Tell me

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

what do you see the crowd

00:25:02--> 00:25:04

Celebrating, celebrating

00:25:05--> 00:25:06

the Great shot

00:25:09--> 00:25:12

because this whole thing which I told you the crowd doesn't know that right?

00:25:13--> 00:25:25

They didn't see Jabra Islam coming they did not hear Allah subhanaw taala talk to the via the hokum nothing nothing. As far as they're concerned, everything is going absolutely according to plan fantastic. Now this man is into the wire is

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

is going to be atomized and that's the end of the story.

00:25:31--> 00:25:48

And then what do they see? They see after the time which Allah subhanaw taala degree the Prime Minister lamb is walking out of that place, not to air on his body is harmed by this fire. But finally the rope that they died him with is burned and gone. Because Allah did not say tell the fire don't burn the robot was adored by

00:25:51--> 00:25:56

Allah did not take away the power of the fire to burn Allah subhanaw taala only said you cannot burn.

00:25:59--> 00:26:06

Salam and Allah when I become a means of safety forever I will Islam not just not burn, don't freezing or something no

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

means of safety verb

00:26:12--> 00:26:16

who is providing the safety the thing which is supposed to destroy you.

00:26:18--> 00:26:22

Think about it. This is the beauty of this religion. This is the beauty of connection with Allah.

00:26:25--> 00:26:29

The beauty of connecting with Allah subhanaw taala is helps you understand the reality of things.

00:26:31--> 00:26:32

We are completely engrossed

00:26:34--> 00:26:35

in material stuff.

00:26:36--> 00:26:45

So we are looking for material solutions. So if there is a danger we say how can we counter this danger? How can we fight against this danger?

00:26:48--> 00:26:50

We forget that the danger is a danger only valla decrease.

00:26:55--> 00:26:59

These key shaky shackle cuccia or shakha Asakusa

00:27:02--> 00:27:11

the thing has a has a shape it has a outward manifestation. But the thing has an inward thing. And that inward power comes from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:27:13--> 00:27:16

So the fire what is the fire to fire burns?

00:27:17--> 00:27:23

What Islam tell you, fire doesn't burn. Fire burns when Allah tells it to burn.

00:27:24--> 00:27:25

Fire doesn't burn.

00:27:26--> 00:27:30

A bad political situation isn't bad.

00:27:32--> 00:27:35

It will be bad if Allah subhanaw taala chooses to make it bad.

00:27:39--> 00:27:45

So we say for this political situation to become favorable to us. These people must be removed.

00:27:47--> 00:27:49

Islam says people don't have to be removed.

00:27:50--> 00:27:52

people's hearts have to change.

00:27:54--> 00:28:04

They're the same people who set out with a sword in his hand a man set out with a sword in his hand and he said I am going to kill Muhammad Sallallahu

00:28:06--> 00:28:16

The man was a wrestler the mayor was a huge big strong man. He was a famous warrior. And he says I moved to finish this with and I once and for all callus

00:28:17--> 00:28:21

no more Mohammed Salah shall we ever had enough is enough.

00:28:22--> 00:28:39

The man doesn't listen to us. We didn't stop preaching. He doesn't stop preaching we tell him forget about Islam he doesn't forget about Islam. We say come back to our into a religion of our forefathers he does not do that. I'm going to finish it once and for all and end the story. He comes out with a sword you know the story you know the man I'm talking about right?

00:28:42--> 00:28:43

What happens to that man?

00:28:44--> 00:28:46

Did Allah take away his sword? No.

00:28:48--> 00:28:49

Allah did not take away sword.

00:28:50--> 00:28:56

Allah simply converted that sword from being against his hobby to being the slave of his Navy.

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

We got into the next door in the corner.

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

Egypt

00:29:18--> 00:29:26

you go to Egypt to the kingdom of the wealthiest, the most powerful monarch of the time.

00:29:27--> 00:29:29

And that was rameses the phone

00:29:34--> 00:29:35

Pharaoh of Egypt

00:29:38--> 00:29:39

and what you see there

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

you see Ramses The fourth

00:29:43--> 00:29:46

is in a peculiar situation. One is he has no son.

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

He needs a baby. He needs a he needs an air. But he has no he has no children. He's not no son. We also see a situation where rameses Egypt at that time

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

was, it was a great civilization it had all kinds of wonderful things in it. But one of the things that Egypt was known for was for its it was known for its magicians.

00:30:13--> 00:30:35

Even to this day, people who are in the world of magic, they say that the kind of magic that the Egyptian machine magicians used to do is unparalleled. I mean, they they did some phenomenal things. We're not talking about party tricks of, you know, car tricks, and so on. We're talking about really, absolutely incredible stuff, which, you know, we, we actually, I don't even know how to describe that. So anyway, that that's how powerful those magicians were.

00:30:37--> 00:30:39

And the whole Egyptian religion.

00:30:40--> 00:30:52

If you take the if you see the Egyptian hieroglyphics and the kind of religion that they had, if you go to Luxor, to the temples there, and so on and so forth. The whole Egyptian religion and their mythology and so on and so forth is very elaborate.

00:30:53--> 00:31:14

And it's based on magic. It's based on astrology, it's based on fortune telling and all of these things. So they're the pharaohs astrologer obviously has to be the number one astrology in the country because he is the is the astrologer to the king. He tells the pharaoh that there is danger for you from the people of bunnies.

00:31:16--> 00:31:22

bunnies are literally slaves of the Egyptians, Egyptians are the superior race.

00:31:24--> 00:31:28

They are the Coptic people and the bunnies, right are the Jewish people.

00:31:30--> 00:31:36

You know, they are they are the they're the slave. They're the people of usually Salah, and Jacobi, salam, and so on.

00:31:38--> 00:32:02

So they are not Jewish in the sense of the Torah hasn't come yet. So they are not people are Muslim yet, but they are people who are the sons of Yahuwah, salaam and usually cinemas one, so they are that the other people, they are the slaves. So now this man tell them that danger is from these people. And they say that there is going to be a child which will be born among the bunnies Ryle, who will destroy your kingdom.

00:32:03--> 00:32:06

Right. Now, today we think people are powerful.

00:32:10--> 00:32:15

Today, we think that world leaders are powerful. Imagine the power of this king.

00:32:16--> 00:32:17

Pharaohs is very, very simple.

00:32:20--> 00:32:23

Kill every newborn son of the bunnies, right?

00:32:25--> 00:32:26

That's it simple.

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

So there's a whole network of spies

00:32:33--> 00:32:37

and alarms. You know how many babies got slaughtered?

00:32:38--> 00:32:54

There's a network of spies. The moment our child a male child is born to a family in among the Bani Israel. They come to know of that. And soldiers turn up at the door. They take the child from the mother they slit his throat and they give the body back to the mother.

00:32:56--> 00:33:01

And this they did with Allah only knows how many hundreds how many 1000s of children

00:33:04--> 00:33:14

This was so evil and so bad obviously it is so evil and bad Allah subhanaw taala in himself mentioned this in the Quran. And Allah call it the bailout as Ebola says as a huge

00:33:16--> 00:33:25

you know, calamity for these people. Imagine your your sons are all killed, daughters are allowed to live, what kind of a life is that? What kind of

00:33:26--> 00:33:27

how was that please be

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

in that situation, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:33:34--> 00:33:38

produces musasa home mimoza the mother of Musa has a baby.

00:33:40--> 00:33:59

Now once again, I want you to think about that story. You know the story I will briefly describe it for you. But think about the story. So now what is the situation situation is here is a boy who has been born into this family in an atmosphere which is 100% hostile.

00:34:01--> 00:34:25

This boy is not supposed to live for more than a day or two because the word will get out and this boy will be killed. But then this boy cannot be killed because this is moose. Allah is Allah Allah subhanaw taala wants to make you a prophet. So Allah must save this boy. I mean, how can you be a prophet has been dead two days after he's born, so he has to live. So Allah saved his boy. So now if we use our intelligence, the receiver if Allah says, Well, what must you do?

00:34:26--> 00:34:42

First thing you must do is this information about this boy must not go out anywhere. Second thing he was doing this boy must be Spirited Away must be taken away from here and hidden in some place, right be taken out of Egypt to someplace where there is safety.

00:34:45--> 00:34:50

But what does Allah subhanaw taala says, What does Allah subhanaw taala say to the mother of Musa Elisa?

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

Allah says keep the y as long as you think it is safe, but once you feel that it is unsafe because

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Obviously there's a whole network of spies. Then what does Allah say? Say to

00:35:04--> 00:35:09

Allah does this Buddha put him in a basket and throw the basket into the Nile?

00:35:10--> 00:35:12

river is a great way of saving somebody right?

00:35:14--> 00:35:15

Put him in a basket

00:35:17--> 00:35:18

excuse me, not about

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

a basket

00:35:21--> 00:35:22

and throw in the Nile.

00:35:24--> 00:35:27

I mean, you never heard of Nile Nile crocodiles. They're not that deride.

00:35:32--> 00:35:33

Huge River.

00:35:34--> 00:35:39

Massive crocodiles in it. You want to put a new one baby into that this is a fine way of saving somebody

00:35:41--> 00:35:44

and then that's not enough. I told you Allah subhanaw taala loves to show off.

00:35:46--> 00:35:47

He will show his father no

00:35:48--> 00:35:53

this is not enough not enough that you put the baby into this river will have crocodiles Oh no, no, no, no, not enough.

00:35:56--> 00:35:57

So what happens now?

00:35:58--> 00:36:20

Allah says Allah Quran the Quran Allah says we strengthen the heart of Moses mother of a man in that womb I mean you may Allah bless her and you know She is the mother of an IV but for a mother to do this, there is no way she would have done that unless Allah subhanaw taala is wider and strengthened rod Allah says, you do that we will return your son to you and He will be an OB.

00:36:23--> 00:36:29

So she follows then what does Allah do? Not enough to throw him in the water with a with a Crux?

00:36:30--> 00:36:38

Allah subhanaw taala then causes this thing to me imagine if you are the Pharaoh of Egypt and you want to build a palace and you are living on the Nile What will you do waterfront right

00:36:39--> 00:37:06

obviously you will have a waterfront plan you won't have a virus somewhere in the desert no you want a waterfront palace so obviously this river and if you are if you are the pharaoh then what you say is no no I won't go to the go to the river the river must come to me so in this water in this palace, the river must be diverted so it flows through the palace and I can sit where I'm sitting and I can watch the river going going past me and then it obviously cools the atmosphere and I'm getting breeze on the water and so on and so on and so on right

00:37:09--> 00:37:11

so now what happens this basket

00:37:12--> 00:37:21

floats on this river doesn't go off somewhere and you know a fisherman found it and he took it to his heart and He kept him quietly and he raised his child on his own oh no no no no no

00:37:23--> 00:37:26

Allah doesn't like these simple situations as complicated

00:37:28--> 00:37:29

as you

00:37:30--> 00:37:33

know what happens now this thing floats into the palace of Iran

00:37:35--> 00:37:38

when it can load in and load out right no no no no no. Not good enough.

00:37:40--> 00:37:43

It loads in who finds it the wife of her own

00:37:46--> 00:38:01

so the opening is a newborn baby and obviously they know it's a baby or the bunnies Riley was a racial difference quite very clearly. The one is that I look different Egyptians look different there's no confusion with that. So here is Bani Israel boy

00:38:04--> 00:38:08

now all the international money sir boy What are you doing my parents?

00:38:10--> 00:38:10

How did you get here?

00:38:15--> 00:38:26

So what can happen when people say no no it's okay it's you know some kid no no no not enough for biology a lot of ways to complicate it more so what is is you know, they bring this boy

00:38:28--> 00:38:32

now the rameses gets involved obviously is there for you they bring him joy are you holding the baby?

00:38:33--> 00:38:35

This is a call that astrologer

00:38:38--> 00:38:39

This is see the boy

00:38:41--> 00:38:42

the astrologer says this is the one

00:38:45--> 00:38:46

right

00:38:48--> 00:38:48

above

00:38:50--> 00:39:04

the camera. No need to fool anyone Allah does not need to fool anybody. Allah does not need to pull the curtains on anybody's eyes. If Allah wants to save you He will make the one who came to kill you become your Savior.

00:39:07--> 00:39:14

The astrologer says this is the boy unfortunately so many more died because this is the one finisher mandatory

00:39:17--> 00:39:27

What does rameses the imagine this is a boy which is a few days old. rameses is holding him in his head. What does he have to do to kill this boy?

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

Drop him

00:39:31--> 00:39:34

That's it. marble floor dropped from here that

00:39:36--> 00:39:37

we didn't die stamp on him finish is gone.

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

Any number of

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

No.

00:39:43--> 00:39:47

Many charming ways of getting rid of them you know unworthy infant.

00:39:49--> 00:39:50

One what happens?

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

The mother or the the wife of Iran. He says look we don't have a child here is a child the child has come

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

What can we do? We will raise this child, he will be our son. He will grow up in our palace. How can he be a danger to us?

00:40:12--> 00:40:13

So we don't listen to his wife.

00:40:16--> 00:40:17

What is the lesson?

00:40:30--> 00:40:36

If you listen to your wife, instead of listening to Allah, then there is a problem which is what Iran did, right?

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

I'm not saying don't listen to it.

00:40:44--> 00:40:46

And as we say, the rest is history.

00:40:47--> 00:41:05

musala ceram. Now here is here is his mother of Moosa. She's got this baby, which is number one liability is alive because he's going to create problems. Now he comes back to her as a prince from the palace of Rome, because now we don't have Musa

00:41:07--> 00:41:32

Musa monta won't drink milk, and nobody can wet nurse him and nothing and now they are getting panicky and this giant going to die because we can't feed him He won't drink, he won't do anything. So what must happen musala sam sister is following this whole thing around. She says, You know, I know a woman in among the bunnies while she is lactating. And maybe this child will bring the milk or the mother was to bring the woman out. Obviously Booz Allen brings the money because that's his mother.

00:41:35--> 00:41:58

So now what happens? There's the auditor, you take this boy and raise him but now he's our Prince. So what happens now, you can raise him anywhere in some you know, have a loner he has to be raised properly, like a prince, meaning now there is a whole entourage with him. And there is a whole allowance for him and there is gold and there is God knows what to be raised as a proper Prince in the household of Iran.

00:42:02--> 00:42:14

This is a loss of animal trainers doing the same one who killed God knows how many 1000 babies when he finds the actual one he should kill. He becomes its Savior, he becomes the one who protects it he becomes the one who raises him.

00:42:19--> 00:42:21

This is the loss of annual gala dinner.

00:42:26--> 00:42:27

So what is the lesson from this?

00:42:28--> 00:42:40

first lesson, differentiation second lesson, concern father's third lesson, connection with Allah subhanaw taala fourth lesson from these two stories. La Viva La la la la la.

00:42:41--> 00:42:46

Nobody can benefit and nobody can harm except Allah Subhana Allah geladeira.

00:42:48--> 00:42:49

Nobody.

00:42:52--> 00:42:54

last story. last lesson.

00:42:56--> 00:43:05

Again, a little boy. And you know, the whole story and this story predates was al Islam story. Again, a little boy is taken and thrown into a well

00:43:06--> 00:43:08

let me know the whole story around it right.

00:43:09--> 00:43:16

Now, what are the circumstances? How fortunate? Do you think you will call somebody who's thrown into a well when you are a little boy by your own brothers?

00:43:20--> 00:43:22

I mean, how bad is that, right?

00:43:23--> 00:43:31

That's not bad enough. Because now he is apparently saved from that being in a well or who saves him.

00:43:34--> 00:43:40

slave owners and slave masters. So they pick him up is Ah, this is nice. We got some free,

00:43:41--> 00:43:45

you know, trade goods. So you take him and you sell him into slavery.

00:43:48--> 00:43:49

From this slavery now,

00:43:51--> 00:44:05

he is growing up in the in the household of the of the governor of Egypt. And then the whole story with regard to the governor's wife and how she tried to seduce him and he, he fought against that and he didn't get he didn't allow that to happen.

00:44:07--> 00:44:21

And the result of being obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala the result of keeping himself pure, the result of not falling into the trap of Xena of fornication? What is the reward of that? jail?

00:44:24--> 00:44:37

But Think, think of and these stories are for us to reflect on. And you might say excuse me, I mean, I am trying to do something good. I am trying to obey you. And instead of, you know, I mean getting me giving me a medal or something. You put me in jail.

00:44:40--> 00:44:41

He's sitting in jail.

00:44:45--> 00:44:51

And then the whole story of the jail and so on and so forth. And finally is released. Now what happens now is

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

find a home run home and right now you are the governor of Egypt. Now you have power and authority. Now you meet your parents back

00:45:00--> 00:45:07

Again, now the reconcilation with your video brothers are now your whole tribe can come and live in Egypt,

00:45:08--> 00:45:10

in peace and harmony.

00:45:11--> 00:45:14

But all of this happens over what period of time.

00:45:16--> 00:45:22

From the time he was a little kid thrown into the well, the time he was the easy 30 years, maybe 40 years.

00:45:26--> 00:45:29

So last lesson is what?

00:45:32--> 00:45:33

Patience,

00:45:34--> 00:46:03

patience, consistently obeying Allah subhanho dolla dolla dolla Lu not getting sidetracked and distracted by saying, Oh but we are praying over you see, I'm doing this, but my business is not going anywhere. I am. No no, you are worshipping Allah subhanaw taala you are being obedient to please Allah, not for the good of your business not for the good of this and that and the other normal you This is myjalah create we created me for this macula de la vida. I'm fulfilling the purpose of my creation

00:46:05--> 00:46:09

Alhamdulillah Arabella, me and my Arab jellicle Allah who will give me because he promised to give.

00:46:11--> 00:46:23

And when I see circumstances around me, I am not happy. I'm not sad. I'm not depressed. I'm not afraid. I'm not saying oh my god what will happen now this government has changed that Governor change law.

00:46:25--> 00:46:34

Only that will happen which by Rob de la jolla who decrees and nothing and nobody on the face of the planet can change that.

00:46:36--> 00:46:41

So what must I do? I must look at my connection with my Arab gelato.

00:46:42--> 00:46:58

What helped you primarily salam, the connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala what helped musala Salah the connection with Allah subhanaw taala what helped you Superleggera the connection with Allah subhanaw taala what helped Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam the connection with Allah Subhana Allah nothing else.

00:46:59--> 00:47:14

When that connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala is intact when it is strong. When it is responsive. Then doors will open where you never thought there was a door. Woman yet de la Allahu Maharajah

00:47:15--> 00:47:26

for the one who has taqwa Allah will extract him from his difficulties. Well, your local mean haizhu law etc. And he will provide him from sources that he could not even imagine.

00:47:27--> 00:47:35

My debacle Allah Allah He has the one who has taught Quran Allah, Allah will become sufficient for him.

00:47:39--> 00:48:09

Allah makes the fire the protector of Ibrahim Elisa, Allah makes rameses the fourth the Pharaoh of Egypt, the protector of masala Salah, Allah makes the well and the slave gang and the prison, the protector of Yusuf Ali salam to keep him safe from the environment and grow him to a point now where he is able to go out in safety and show his talent to the world and do what Allah has decreed for him to do.

00:48:12--> 00:48:14

Circumstances don't mean anything.

00:48:16--> 00:48:17

Material means nothing.

00:48:19--> 00:48:27

Focus on Allah subhanho wa Taala do what you have to do I really am not I am not recommending to you that you will see an image of a mage and read was the first No

00:48:30--> 00:48:47

no, no we did that. The MBR worked. So do the work. Do what you need to do. But make sure that your heart is clear with respect to Allah subhanaw taala do what you need to do and then ask Allah Subhana Allah to help tawakkol is the Tao head of the heart

00:48:48--> 00:49:27

tawakkol is a doorway to the heart. Our goal is to stand before Allah subhana wa Taala after doing work, yeah, you will die in ob Sabri was Allah Allah did not say I will in ominous die you know bizarre It was our No, we Sabri was Allah. First our first patience. First consistence first hard work first exploring every option first doing whatever it takes. And then standing in salah and making noise in Yala, I did all of this. But none of this has any meaning. none of this matters. None of this can help me unless you have

00:49:29--> 00:49:35

this is the thought of it is not enough to take yourself out of this thing and not say no no which is my effort. I did all this.

00:49:36--> 00:49:41

I will call this self made man. There's nothing more stupid than that statement.

00:49:45--> 00:49:53

Which I don't know I did only what I needed to do what I could do, but the one who does is Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:49:54--> 00:49:55

the hola hola hola.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

So to make the effort and then to stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:50:00--> 00:50:03

To ask him, this is the third of the heart and that is the meaning of

00:50:05--> 00:50:47

ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to learn the lessons from the Quran and to apply them in our lives and ask Allah subhanaw taala to fill your life with his nor and his Baraka and his hora. And to show you like, he showed me a surah how he does his things, to increase to increase and to strengthen your image, and to make you pillars of yaqeen in this world, which needs such stability, and to provide that stability for the world by spreading goodness all around you. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to take whatever fear apprehension and whatever worry that may be in your heart and remove it completely, and to fill your hearts with his nose and with his Baraka so that your hearts

00:50:47--> 00:51:03

are illuminated with an aura of Allah subhanaw taala geladeira ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept your daughters to give you whatever you asked with higher an idea and to give you more from his generosity and grace was Allah Allah will carry while he was average might be radical
