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

Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah vi even was really mohammadu Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was happy to sell this live on Kaziranga sera from my brother.

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

My brother sister cinematical. What I want to learn what

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

Alhamdulillah we are.

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

On the 25th night of Ramadan al Karim, one of the odd nights, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us

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

and to accept all our doors and to give us from His Majesty and grace.

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

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

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

I want to say two things to you.

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

The first one is

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

that the key to leadership

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

in any field

00:00:53--> 00:00:55

is to differentiate.

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

Because differentiation creates brand,

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

brand

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

inspires loyalty.

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

And loyalty enables inroads.

00:01:11--> 00:01:12

Without differentiation,

00:01:13--> 00:01:16

you are one grain of rice in a sack,

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

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

00:01:21--> 00:01:22

Nobody knows you.

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

Nobody cares if you die.

00:01:26--> 00:01:29

But when you differentiate, then you stand out

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

and on the basis of what you stand out for.

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

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

00:01:40--> 00:01:44

That is what enables you to create a legacy.

00:01:46--> 00:01:47

And so the second point

00:01:48--> 00:02:00

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

00:02:02--> 00:02:08

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

00:02:10--> 00:02:16

As long as I have enough grass to eat, as long as I bought in a me to eat as long as I want, my belly is full.

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

Add the most I'm concerned debate about my own.

00:02:24--> 00:02:29

My own family, my own whatever, you know, hobbies.

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

But beyond that, there's no concern.

00:02:35--> 00:02:41

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

00:02:42--> 00:02:58

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

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

moving from point A to point B.

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

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

00:03:15--> 00:03:17

And obviously, they take

00:03:18--> 00:03:18

from them.

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

But not one in that herd

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

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

00:03:30--> 00:03:47

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 billion Willoughby's which are passing it.

00:03:51--> 00:04:01

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

00:04:02--> 00:04:06

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

00:04:08--> 00:04:11

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

00:04:13--> 00:04:22

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

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

The house is related to the corner.

00:04:27--> 00:04:36

This is related to the Quran because Allah Subhana Allah 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 all night doing this.

00:04:38--> 00:04:43

Allah give us example after example after example of his MBA, Mashallah His prophets

00:04:44--> 00:04:51

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

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

for excellence.

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

I want you to put yourself in a position which I'm going to do

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

Describe, you heard the story from me before but this is the beauty of the stories 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

00:05:15--> 00:05:20

connected with Allah subhanaw taala. So I want you to put yourself in that position.

00:05:21--> 00:05:23

And what is that position, their position is

00:05:24--> 00:05:39

a 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 an umbrella is what really inspires me frankly.

00:05:40--> 00:05:45

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

00:05:46--> 00:05:52

Allah bless you May Allah protect you may Allah valterra use you for his Deen and accept you in his body gela

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

so young boy like this, like one of you.

00:05:58--> 00:05:59

But he's not hanging out with his friends.

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

He's not playing some game.

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

he's by himself

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

in the wilderness,

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

he's come out of his town

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

and he's talking to Allah.

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

He's talking to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

And what did he say?

00:06:21--> 00:06:28

Allah subhanaw taala liked what he said so much that Allah subhanaw taala made that a part of his column to be recited until the day of judgment.

00:06:30--> 00:06:45

So Allah, Allah told us what what he said. Allah subhanaw taala said I will build a humanoid shape on the regime. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim way the call I Brahim warabi Renae guy Fado he'll Mota.

00:06:47--> 00:07:05

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

Allah subhanaw taala said

00:07:18--> 00:07:22

and remember when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam said

00:07:23--> 00:07:32

00:07:40--> 00:07:55

this this conversation is so beautiful every time I read this if I sit and reflect as as one love What a beautiful conversation this is and how this conversation reflects the connection between this little boy and his object

00:07:59--> 00:08:11

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

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

he's talking to one little kid

00:08:19--> 00:08:20

he's not a Navy yet.

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

He started as one little boy

00:08:26--> 00:08:31

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

00:08:34--> 00:08:36

it's such a reflection of closeness

00:08:43--> 00:08:49

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

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

and see the response to that

00:08:54--> 00:08:56

can I want them to me?

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

Let's just what you don't believe

00:09:03--> 00:09:03

you don't believe

00:09:07--> 00:09:14

and then how does he How does he respond? Karla Bella well I can know yet we're in the we're like in the yet

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

well I Kyla well I kill Lee yet Ryan

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

Of course I believe

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

but just so that I have more it Wynonna

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

so that I have

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

let me

00:09:37--> 00:09:48

laser cover Oh, Cal Marina. He said the report the information is not the same as seeing something as experiencing something. The two are different.

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

Somebody says fireballs,

00:09:53--> 00:09:55

information, correct information

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

but put your finger on the wire.

00:10:02--> 00:10:06

Same thing, but now you're experiencing that. Is there a difference between the two?

00:10:11--> 00:10:15

So here what I mean is that I'm saying show me that losses don't really

00:10:16--> 00:10:18

resolve, I believe, yeah, of course I believe

00:10:19--> 00:10:20

it officially

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

Viet Minh Nickleby for the winner of my call.

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

Now,

00:10:31--> 00:10:42

as soon as I saw him when he read this, it used to say, Ibrahim had to say if Ibrahim Ali Salam would say lethwei Nepal we we have even more right to say that.

00:10:45--> 00:10:49

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

00:10:51--> 00:10:55

to be concerned about the connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:10:57--> 00:11:14

Not just entertainment and you know, my friends and I out is a no no, who's your best friend? Allah Subhana Allah said, not friend, in a sense of human friend with his own friendship as far as the last concert, the wilayat have with Allah subhanho wa Taala. When I when somebody says, Allah said,

00:11:16--> 00:11:21

Allah in Aurelia Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Allah, Xena MANOVA God.

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

Allah said that for the earlier of Allah,

00:11:26--> 00:11:28

there is no fear and there is no

00:11:29--> 00:11:33

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

00:11:35--> 00:11:38

I live in a amanu organ We are the home people of Yemen and we will have Taqwa.

00:11:40--> 00:11:48

So, the will of Allah subhanaw taala is not friendship as in a human sense, will either was radicalized to be in a position where Allah loves you the most.

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

The moment the favorite slave of Allah,

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

that is the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:11:57--> 00:11:58

So,

00:11:59--> 00:12:00

in the case of

00:12:02--> 00:12:06

this conversation, so now what is Allah, Allah says take for birds

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

and tame them.

00:12:11--> 00:12:23

Now is what I this is the thing which I always say when we read the hora we must reflect a lot. I said this and your your the in interview also ray of Allah tada Bernal Cora.

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

Let's say don't reflect on the Quran. Allah didn't say don't read the Quran Allah said do not don't reflect on the hora

00:12:33--> 00:12:45

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

00:12:47--> 00:12:56

now when I'm going to celebrate 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 tell them

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

you can't get

00:13:00--> 00:13:05

adult birds. And if you got another bird, you can't tame it. wild birds or wild birds?

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

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

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

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

00:13:19--> 00:13:29

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.

00:13:30--> 00:13:32

So find four nests,

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

hatch links,

00:13:36--> 00:13:39

get them, feed them, them them.

00:13:41--> 00:13:42

They become fledglings.

00:13:43--> 00:13:44

They learn to fly.

00:13:46--> 00:13:51

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

00:13:53--> 00:14:01

It takes weeks, once a year years, but definitely takes several weeks, maybe a couple of months, maybe more.

00:14:02--> 00:14:17

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

00:14:18--> 00:14:31

Because Allah has purpose is to show you his holder, his power and glory. So if Allah created something which was which looked possible anyway, then after listen to that, you might argue Yeah, that's true, it can be done.

00:14:32--> 00:14:39

So unless one of the creators uation, which is so completely impossible that you say, Well, no, this is impossible. There's no way to do that. And then Allah does it.

00:14:44--> 00:14:54

So Allah says take these for the meaning, raise these birds, tame them. They come and when you call them, then what you do is you slaughter them.

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

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

00:15:01--> 00:15:13

Now you don't know which words foot it is and which boards heavy it is and which words interesting it is and which word hard it is and which word feather it is and you don't know because everything is mixed up like a like a you know femur

00:15:14--> 00:15:19

and then not complicated enough want to complicate it even more so now what must you do

00:15:21--> 00:15:55

now make it into four separate lumps. So for this device, you know two kilos Okay, why am I gonna do for several then is not obligated enough now What must you do is take one of this mixture, climb one mountain go put it on double and then come back, take the other mixture, climb another mountain, put it up put it on top of that now take the third one and do it on a third mountain the word V is on a format now go and stand in the middle of the of these four waters and call the birds and they will come to you

00:15:59--> 00:16:05

imagine what kind of possibilities THESE ARE YOU job to kill them your job job you mix them up everything is all you know.

00:16:08--> 00:16:26

And then you separate them on four different mountains I mean in this lump is probably there's you know one bird there and this bird is got interest and missing or got gotten with what missing and that stuff is on some other modern Ah, Allah, that is great the situation which is apparently completely impossible to the lesson now I will show you what I get.

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

This is the meaning of the connection with a lot of animals.

00:16:38--> 00:16:40

And what comes out of that.

00:16:41--> 00:16:46

Out of that comes the kind of you're keen on Allah Subhana Allah Jalla Jalla

00:16:47--> 00:17:30

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 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's listening to him and so on and so forth. And finally, we will get so mad

00:17:30--> 00:17:36

at him that they said we have to kill this virus and we can't just we just don't just want to kill him. We have to burn him.

00:17:38--> 00:18:01

So now they Stoke this fire they have this enormous fire that they create and this virus is so big and so massive that they can't even go close to it. So they designed the how to how to throw him into a vehicle you throw him in the fire you have to go close to the fire We can't do that so we are going to put him into a CG engine into a double j and tie him up and then shoot him into this file

00:18:03--> 00:18:38

so imagine this whole thing happening is were being stalked and so on so forth would have taken days and then they would have got established a and then you can imagine those people who are firing the treasure they're taking some arranging shots to make sure that the that he doesn't fly over it or something you know we want to make sure you dropped in the middle of it today maybe they're taking some random shots and stuff they've done all that now everything is very Of course they all town everybody's gathered this is the this is the happening thing that's going on going to happen now and we are going to see this Vietnam revival is being ended once and for all and then the magnificent

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

way is God with thrown to the fire. That's it.

00:18:42--> 00:18:54

They will always have now trussed up completely and like everything bound up and he's put into this cup of this treasure and all that remains is for the person at the back to chop the rope and his gatorboard will throw him into the flat

00:18:58--> 00:19:05

at that moment gibberella is lm comes to you by Melissa. And he says yeah, but I'm telling me what can I do for you?

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

How can I help?

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

Who is the right?

00:19:12--> 00:19:16

This is the one who asked Allah tala Rebecca to heal Mota

00:19:18--> 00:19:21

who is coming to him and saying please tell me how can I help you?

00:19:22--> 00:19:36

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 say tell the person I need this there's nothing wrong with that area. The person standing there in front of you or you're talking to that person happens to be an angel so what

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

what what is the Bible

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

says you

00:19:45--> 00:19:46

he says I don't need anything from you.

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

I don't need anything from you.

00:19:52--> 00:19:53

Why will ask you?

00:19:54--> 00:19:58

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

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

But I can ask my route 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 when I don't talk to anybody else. Why do I need anybody?

00:20:16--> 00:20:33

Even less around nobody is wrong goes back to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah is watching all of this happening. Allah does not need anyone to inform him. But he will is that goes to Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, but Allah me, your Holly, your messenger, your Nabil, your soul is about to be burned to death.

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

I went to ask him, can I help you with a review? We'll talk to me.

00:20:40--> 00:20:45

Allah Valdez now go to him. Tell him I sent you and I am asking him what does he want from me?

00:20:48--> 00:21:05

This is also, again, the love of Allah subhanaw taala for gradualism, Allah, of course knows what he's going to say before he can even think of that. These are. But these are the things that are less valid than it does to set up evidence in favor of his favorite people.

00:21:07--> 00:21:22

So journalism comes back to the 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.

00:21:23--> 00:21:40

You might say, well, how long does it take from that does that thing doesn't apply is a different different ballgame altogether. Did you realize that I'm counting back and he says, Yeah, Ibrahim, I am now here on the order of your app jell o jell o and he is asking What do you want?

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

What do you want from him?

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

What is the revelator?

00:21:47--> 00:21:50

Even I will as Rob says, My Rob does not need to ask.

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

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

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

He didn't say that. I'm saying

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

What do I want? This is the meaning of reasonable.

00:22:04--> 00:22:18

Reasonable kada does not mean that I asked for something and I get it a nice Oh Allah, I'm so thankful that God hamdulillah You should thank Allah, Allah, but risiville Kala is whatever you decree for me, no matter what it is, I shall hamdulillah

00:22:20--> 00:22:35

let me just choose 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.

00:22:37--> 00:22:40

You will have alleged by Rob does not need to ask.

00:22:41--> 00:22:44

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

00:22:46--> 00:22:50

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

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

You want me to burn I'm ready.

00:22:56--> 00:22:57

Now muscala no problem.

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

You want to send me You can send me

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

whenever I

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

removed

00:23:08--> 00:23:22

the as BB from between himself and the Musab bibulous BB. Whenever I was removed from between himself and his ob gela general who Allah subhanho wa Taala directly addressed the fire no more jabril

00:23:24--> 00:23:33

la sala Allah, Allah directly addressed the buyer and Allah said hola ya na Cooney burden was on Allah Ibrahim

00:23:36--> 00:23:37

Allah did not say to the USA now save him

00:23:39--> 00:23:44

Allah did not say to Mikhail is now send downrange so that the wire is cold

00:23:45--> 00:23:46

put out the fire

00:23:48--> 00:23:57

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

00:23:59--> 00:24:05

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

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

Keep your fire

00:24:09--> 00:24:17

burn your via stroke your wire make it as hard as you want makes no difference. It will only do what I tell it to do.

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

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

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

The air has no power to lift anything.

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

The ground has no power to bear any weight.

00:24:32--> 00:24:34

Load disease has any power to affect anybody.

00:24:36--> 00:24:41

Nothing has any power, except Mayra gela de la la hawla wala po what I love it.

00:24:43--> 00:24:47

So whenever I when I Salam removed the as well from between himself and his Robin, he says

00:24:48--> 00:24:56

whatever you want, I want another one that says Kol Na Na Cooney burden was Salomon Allah Ibrahim

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

gadoury

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

When I when I slam flies through the air is into the fire

00:25:08--> 00:25:12

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

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

So what do you see the crowd doing? Tell me

00:25:18--> 00:25:19

what do you see the crowd doing?

00:25:21--> 00:25:23

celebrating, celebrating

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

the Great shot

00:25:28--> 00:25:31

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

00:25:32--> 00:25:44

They didn't see you 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 virus

00:25:45--> 00:25:47

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

00:25:50--> 00:26:07

And then what do they see? They see after a time which Allah subhanaw taala degree the Prime Minister live is walking out of that place, not a hair on his body is harmed by this fire. But finally the rope that they tied him with his body and God because Allah did not say tell the via don't want the robots adored by

00:26:10--> 00:26:15

Allah did not take away the power of the fire to burn Allah is one the only said you cannot burn right?

00:26:18--> 00:26:25

Salaam and ally become a means of safety for everyone, not just not burn don't freeze him or something no

00:26:28--> 00:26:29

means of safety for him

00:26:30--> 00:26:35

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

00:26:37--> 00:26:42

think about it, this is the beauty of this religion This is the beauty of connecting with a lot rather than

00:26:44--> 00:26:48

the beauty of connecting with a loved one or that has helped you understand the reality of things

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

we are completely engrossed

00:26:53--> 00:26:54

in material stuff.

00:26:55--> 00:27:04

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?

00:27:07--> 00:27:09

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

00:27:14--> 00:27:18

These key shaky shackle Gucci or Shaq SL Gucci

00:27:21--> 00:27:29

thing has a has a shape it has a outward manifestation with the thing has an inward thing. And that inward power comes from

00:27:32--> 00:27:34

the fire. What is the fire to fire bonds?

00:27:36--> 00:27:42

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

00:27:43--> 00:27:43

Fire doesn't burn

00:27:45--> 00:27:48

a bad political situation? Is it bad?

00:27:51--> 00:27:54

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

00:27:58--> 00:28:04

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

00:28:06--> 00:28:08

Islam says people don't have to remove

00:28:09--> 00:28:11

people's hearts have to change.

00:28:13--> 00:28:23

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

00:28:25--> 00:28:35

The man was a wrestler The man was a huge big strong man. He was a famous warrior. And he said I'm going to finish this with an eye once and for all callus

00:28:36--> 00:28:40

no more Mohamed Salah Shall we have had enough is enough.

00:28:41--> 00:28:58

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. If 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 End of story. He comes out with a sword. You know the story you know the man I'm talking about right?

00:29:01--> 00:29:02

What happened to that man?

00:29:03--> 00:29:05

Did Allah take away his sword? No.

00:29:07--> 00:29:08

Allah did not take away his sword.

00:29:09--> 00:29:15

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

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

Why don't

00:29:27--> 00:29:28

we go to the next story in the

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

book

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

Egypt.

00:29:37--> 00:29:45

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

00:29:46--> 00:29:48

And that was rameses the

00:29:53--> 00:29:54

Pharaoh of Egypt

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

What do you see there?

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

You see Ramses the fourth.

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

He's in a peculiar situation. One is he has no son.

00:30:07--> 00:30:31

He needs a baby, he needs a hearing he needs an air. What he knows is he has no children, there is no sun. We also see a situation where rameses Egypt at that time it 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.

00:30:32--> 00:30:54

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

00:30:56--> 00:30:58

And the whole Egyptian religion.

00:30:59--> 00:31:11

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.

00:31:12--> 00:31:33

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

00:31:35--> 00:31:41

Bani Israel are literally slaves of the Egyptians, Egyptians are the superior race.

00:31:43--> 00:31:47

They are the Coptic people and the very Israel are the Jewish people.

00:31:49--> 00:31:55

You know, they are they are the they're the slave they are the people of, of usually salah and Jacobi, Salam and so on.

00:31:57--> 00:32:20

So they are not Jewish in the sense of the Torah hasn't come yet so they are not people are muzzle is that I'm yet but they are people who are the sons of iacobelli salaam and usually set Amazon so they are that the other people, they are the slaves. So now this mad tell them that dangerous from these people. And they say that, oh, there is going to be a child which will be born among the bunnies Ryle, who will destroy your kingdom.

00:32:22--> 00:32:25

Right now, today we think people are powerful.

00:32:29--> 00:32:34

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

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

Pharaoh says that is very simple.

00:32:39--> 00:32:42

Kill every newborn son of the bunnies, right?

00:32:44--> 00:32:45

That's it simple.

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

So there's a whole network of spies.

00:32:52--> 00:32:56

And Allah knows how many babies got slaughtered.

00:32:57--> 00:33:13

There's a network of spies. The moment a child a male child is born to a family in among the bunnies Ryle. 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.

00:33:15--> 00:33:20

And this they did with a loneliness how many hundreds how many 1000s of children

00:33:23--> 00:33:33

This was so evil and so bad. Obviously it is so evil and bad. Allah subhanaw taala in himself mentions this in the Quran. And Allah call it the bailout, as he says is a huge

00:33:35--> 00:33:44

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

00:33:45--> 00:33:46

how was that please be.

00:33:49--> 00:33:52

In that situation, Allah subhanaw taala

00:33:53--> 00:33:57

produces musasa mimoza the mother of Missouri has a baby.

00:33:59--> 00:34:18

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.

00:34:19--> 00:34:44

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 most Allah is Allah subhanaw taala wants to make a profit. So Allah must save this boy. I mean, how can you be a prophet is that two days after is one so he has to live. So Allah saved his boy. So now if we use our intelligence and we say, Well, if Allah says, Well, what must you do?

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

First thing you must do is this information about this boy must not go out anywhere. Second thing he was doing his boy must be Spirited Away must be taken away from here and hidden in some place. Right? We take him out of Egypt to some place

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

Where there is safety.

00:35:03--> 00:35:09

But what is Allah subhanaw taala says, What is the last word that I say to the mother of Musa Elisa?

00:35:11--> 00:35:22

Allah says give the y as long as you think it is safe, but once you feel that it is unsaved because obviously there's a whole network of spies, that What does Allah say say to

00:35:23--> 00:35:27

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

00:35:29--> 00:35:31

That's a great way of saving somebody right?

00:35:33--> 00:35:34

Put them in a basket.

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

Excuse me, not about a basket

00:35:40--> 00:35:41

and throwing the Nile

00:35:42--> 00:35:46

I mean, you never heard of Nile Nile crocodiles. They're not that big, right?

00:35:51--> 00:35:51

Huge River.

00:35:53--> 00:35:58

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

00:36:00--> 00:36:03

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

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

Your show is

00:36:07--> 00:36:12

not enough not enough that you would the baby into this river will have broken I don't know No, no, no, not enough.

00:36:15--> 00:36:16

So what happened now?

00:36:17--> 00:36:39

Allah says Allah Allah in the Quran Allah says we strengthen the heart of Moses Mother of mama imagine that woman I mean you may Allah bless her and you know she's the mother of a wannabe but for a mother to do this, there is no way she would have done that unless Allah subhanaw taala is wider and strengthened that Allah says you do that we will return your son to you and He will be enemy.

00:36:42--> 00:36:48

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

00:36:49--> 00:36:57

Allah subhanaw taala then causes this thing to 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

00:36:58--> 00:37:25

obviously you will have a waterfront private you won't have a balance somewhere in the desert no you want a waterfront balance so obviously this river and if you are if you are the better than what do you say is I don't know that 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 see 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 this breeze on the water and so on and so on and so on right

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

so now what happens this basket

00:37:31--> 00:37:40

loads on this river doesn't go off somewhere and you know a fisherman vowed 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 no

00:37:42--> 00:37:45

Allah doesn't doesn't like these simple situations complicated

00:37:48--> 00:37:52

what happens now this thing floats into the palace of Iran

00:37:54--> 00:37:57

well it can load in and load out right no no no no no not good enough

00:37:59--> 00:38:02

it loads in who finds it the wife of

00:38:05--> 00:38:20

the open the thing 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 why look different Egyptian look different there's no confusion with that. So here is bunnies rile boy

00:38:23--> 00:38:27

now all the internet money sell boy What are you doing my palace

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

How did you get here?

00:38:34--> 00:38:45

So what can happen well let me mute people's no no it's okay it's you know some kid no no not enough for by Rob della della was too complicated more so what is his you know? They bring this boy

00:38:46--> 00:38:51

now the rameses gets involved obviously is there so you they bring him joy and he rolling the baby.

00:38:52--> 00:38:54

This is a call that astrologer

00:38:57--> 00:38:58

this I see the boy

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

the astrologer says this is the one

00:39:04--> 00:39:05

Hey

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

Peter.

00:39:10--> 00:39:23

No need to fool anyone. Allah does not need to fool anybody. Allah does not need to pull the gardens or anybody dies. If Allah wants to save you He will make the one who came to kill you become your Savior.

00:39:26--> 00:39:33

The astrologer says this is the boy unfortunately so many more died because this is the organism End of story.

00:39:36--> 00:39:46

What does rameses the volume it 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?

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

The

00:39:51--> 00:39:53

marble floor drop from here that

00:39:54--> 00:39:56

we didn't die stamp on finish is gone.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Any number of

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

No.

00:40:02--> 00:40:06

Many jabbing with a battery getting a getting rid of some, you know unworthy infant

00:40:08--> 00:40:09

what happens?

00:40:12--> 00:40:27

The mother or the wife of Iran? He says, look, we don't have a child here is a child the child has come, what can this child 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?

00:40:31--> 00:40:32

So we don't listen to his wife.

00:40:35--> 00:40:36

What is the lesson?

00:40:49--> 00:40:55

If you listen to your wife, instead of listening to Allah, then there's a problem, which is what we don't do, right?

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

I'm not saying don't listen, do it.

00:41:03--> 00:41:05

And as we say, the rest is history.

00:41:06--> 00:41:06

Who's

00:41:08--> 00:41:20

now here is here is his mother of Moosa. She's got this baby, which is number one liability in our life, because it's going to create problems for now he comes back to her as a prince from the palace of

00:41:21--> 00:41:23

because now we don't really know

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

the whole story, we

00:41:27--> 00:41:51

won't drink milk, and nobody can wet nurse him and nothing. And now they are getting panicky that this child is going to die because we can't feed him He won't drink, he won't do anything. So what must happen musala ceram sister is following this whole thing around. He 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 will bring the woman out, obviously, brings the money because that's his mother.

00:41:53--> 00:42:17

So now what happens? There, all right, you take this boy and raise him, but now he's our Prince. So what happened now, you can raise him anywhere in some middle our lawn, or he was 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's a gold and there is God knows what to be raised as a proper Prince in the household of Iran.

00:42:21--> 00:42:33

This is a loss of animal that is doing the same one who was killed God knows how many 1000 babies, when you find the actual one it would kill, he becomes its Savior, he becomes the one who protected he becomes the one who raised them.

00:42:38--> 00:42:40

This is a loss of eligibility.

00:42:45--> 00:42:46

So what is the lesson from this?

00:42:47--> 00:42:59

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

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

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

00:43:07--> 00:43:08

Nobody.

00:43:11--> 00:43:13

last story. last lesson.

00:43:14--> 00:43:24

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

00:43:25--> 00:43:27

And we know the whole story around it right.

00:43:28--> 00:43:35

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

00:43:39--> 00:43:41

I mean, how bad is that, right?

00:43:42--> 00:43:50

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

00:43:52--> 00:43:59

slave owners and slave masters. So they begin with Ah, this is nice. We got some free

00:44:00--> 00:44:04

there are trade goods. So you take him and you sell him into slavery.

00:44:07--> 00:44:08

From this level now,

00:44:09--> 00:44:24

he is growing up in the in the household of the of the governor of Egypt. And an old 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.

00:44:26--> 00:44:40

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

00:44:43--> 00:44:56

But Think, think of all these stories are was to reflect on. Or 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.

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

He's sitting in jail.

00:45:03--> 00:45:09

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

00:45:11--> 00:45:26

find a home run home and right now you are the government of Egypt. Now you have power and authority. Now you meet your parents back again. Now that is the cancellation with your video brothers and so on. Now your whole drive can come and live in Egypt,

00:45:27--> 00:45:28

in peace and harmony.

00:45:30--> 00:45:33

But all of this happens, or what period of time

00:45:35--> 00:45:41

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

00:45:45--> 00:45:48

The last lesson is what?

00:45:51--> 00:45:52

Patience,

00:45:53--> 00:46:18

patience, consistently obeying Allah subhana wa Jalla Jalla delallo not getting sidetracked and distracted by saying overdry I'm praying over this year I'm doing this but my business is not going anywhere. I am learner. You are worshiping 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 in the normal you. This is my Allah greatroom created me for this macula.

00:46:20--> 00:46:22

I'm fulfilling the purpose of migration

00:46:23--> 00:46:28

Alhamdulillah me and my Arab Jelena Allah will give me because you promised to give me

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

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

00:46:44--> 00:46:53

Only that will happen which by Rob jelajah Lalo decrees and nothing and nobody on the face of the planet can change that.

00:46:55--> 00:46:59

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

00:47:01--> 00:47:17

What helped me when I am Allah Salaam, the connection with Allah subhanho what had musala Salah the connection with Allah subhanho wa Telugu Valenzuela the connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the connection with Allah Subhana Allah nothing else.

00:47:18--> 00:47:33

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 that Illa Allah who Maharaja

00:47:34--> 00:47:45

for the one who has taqwa Allah will extract him from his difficulties. Were loco min Hazel Allah and he will provide him from sources that he could not even imagine.

00:47:46--> 00:47:54

Oh my god and Allah He has the one who has the Quran Allah, Allah will become sufficient for him.

00:47:58--> 00:48:28

Allah makes the fire the protector of your eye Melissa, Allah makes Ramses the fourth, the Pharaoh of Egypt, the protector of masala Salah, Allah makes the well and the slave gang and prison, the protector of use of Ali Salaam 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.

00:48:31--> 00:48:33

Circumstances don't mean anything.

00:48:35--> 00:48:36

Material means nothing.

00:48:38--> 00:48:46

Focus on Allah subhanho wa Taala do what you have to do. I'm not I'm not recommending to you that you will sit in a Masjid and read was he was no

00:48:49--> 00:49:06

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 you tawakkol is the Tao head of the heart.

00:49:07--> 00:49:46

The coal is the towhees of the heart. Our goal is to stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala after doing work, yeah you alladhina amanu Stein ob Sabri was Allah. Allah did not say I will at the nominals die in ob Salatu was our know with somebody was Allah. First, our first patience. First consistence was hard work first exploring every option first doing whatever it takes. And then standing in salah and making dua and saying y'all I did all of this. But none of this has any meaning. None of these matters. None of these can can help me unless you have

00:49:48--> 00:49:54

this is the topic is not to take yourself out of this thing and not say no, no, this is my effort. I did all this.

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

I built all this self made man. There's nothing more stupid than that.

00:50:04--> 00:50:22

We still 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 della de la la hawla wala quwata illa. So to make the effort and then to stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala and to ask him, this is the third of the heart and that is the meaning of

00:50:24--> 00:51:06

ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to learn the lessons from the Quran, and to apply them in our lives and ask Allah Subhana Allah to fill your life with his Knower and his Baraka and his and to show you like is your Divine Will is how he does his things to do in Greece in Greece and to strengthen your Eman 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 Subhana Allah 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

00:51:06--> 00:51:22

are illuminated with an order of Allah subhanaw taala geladeira ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept your daughters to give you whatever you ask with higher and afia and to give you more from his generosity and grace, or Salalah Alana will vary while he was average might be raha
