from salatu salam ala say you know what you want me now I have a good advice and Mohammed Abdullah by the way he was somebody who will tell you a moment
we publish Russian Saturday where silly me wondering
if possible Tony I praise Allah Almighty. And I said prayers, blessings upon profit and covenants of Salamis, noble family righteous companions and all those that follow them with the right guidance until the day of judgment and
Glory be to have you along knowledge can we accept that which you have taught us Indeed you are the owner when do wise, my dear brothers and sisters Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Everyone is doing well. And we continue in sha Allah with our tafsir class. Then we got to the following aliens
that are the real learning teams.
Why this test almost only he felt good in VR saw can hijack our fun Java seven, Java to me news net
bada Arima guru guna as in
Gulu shabu memories
job, Excel will only move see the
we need to now remember where we got to
so that we can properly understand the placement of this area.
Last time we spoke about the saying of Allah subhanaw taala it's putting a barrier
talking about Allah subhanaw taala combating them to enter what we said most probably is the holy city of Jerusalem with
profit you sharp ever knew.
And we talked about this idea and less
this is about
Prophet Musa alayhis salam
praying to Allah subhanaw taala
in bringing the rain as the dire Lee required rain they needed water to drink.
What was this?
This was also in a tea. We said that tea is what
what does it do?
You will keep hearing that and seeing it from the Deaf see
an Arabic word teeth.
Herbs know what I think my
right, the time when they got left lost in the desert, right? For 40 years 40 years they are lost in the desert. This was a punishment from Allah subhanaw taala.
Most scholars have deceived say that this occurred in a tea
in this wilderness.
This is when they wanted and required the water.
And we know from Surah
that they asked Musa alayhis salam pray to your Lord,
to grant us and to
bring rain down upon us this this what is this?
So this is a tea
upon saying this, there should immediately be some
alarm bells in your brain
because in the last area we were talking about the time of you shall
you shall be known this after the tea
is after the wilderness.
Musa and Harun Allah He must have already died.
Everyone with me? This is gonna require a little bit of
We go back another area.
I start with this because we need to know the context before that one lender on a common one Zelner had a Google my name was Sanwa. Where was this?
Where was it?
Did the FC a
long time ago
that was also in a tea. Right?
say, well, this happened also in a tea in the wilderness of the desert. Allah subhanaw taala was reminding them of his blessings upon them that we gave you this miraculous food and men was set up in a tea
after that, there is mention of with Hulu had to heal earlier. So timewise chronologically, it went very much forward.
To the time have you shot the balloon and when they actually entered Jerusalem successfully.
Now what this test covers, only we are back in
Why is this?
This is not an easy question. And to be honest, I didn't find a single professor who mentioned it.
Okay, or who talked about?
Let's go to an hour off. It's already an hour off. Allah subhanaw taala says
what Dr. Anna was Natasha tell us about uma umana, whoa hyena, it is discountable right.
So, this is where you have the is this
You mentioned that is the stuff that he mentions. Once that alikoum him and mana was similar. Okay.
After that, what is the the level of school
so there, Allah subhanaw taala.
Placed whatever it was mentioned about the tee.
The men was Sanwa that came down. And the is the stop when Musa Ali salaam asked for water, the prayer for Allah subhanaw taala to give them read. You mentioned it together. And then he mentioned after that would follow heavy and Korea.
it seems Walhalla if we say
the iron was put, let's put we'll have the Lumina. I push it to Mahara. And then you see what it is Tuscaloosa? The company you might think, Oh, it seems like now we went back
if you look at it that way. But if you look at it, if you look at the whole picture, you'll see that actually the context is the wilderness T
what is witness will already the next day. The next one?
What is this man who said he called me? The next one? What is going to be Amazon knows
all were at
this time where they were lost in the wilderness these 14 years. So with that we see that actually this aerial is pulling at Hulu heading to Korea
seems to be an interjection
in the context of
the wilderness at tea. Then the question becomes why?
And like I said, this is not an easy question to answer and I'll leave it with you for
a few seconds to like get a sip of water
when you look at three that are off so that it
seems to be taking things chronologically.
And we said sorted out off because it is my key. It was revealed in Matka
Madani and it was revealed in Medina. So Surah two
is actually telling the story.
It seems to be telling the story and if you look at the details, they were all
A lot of details there, especially when we talk about how they worship the calf. And what happened with that. So you see a lot of details of the story.
And here in this set of verses, you see that there seems to be a chronology.
This is not too bad brothers and sisters, we need to speak about these things. We can't keep saying no, we don't have a lot of knowledge. We just want to talk about the Quran. At a very superficial level. What about going deep? What about really thinking about the book of Allah subhanaw taala, not just giving it a few minutes here and there. Give it more of your time, even more of your intellectual capacity of your study of your intention.
So, in the latter half, he mentions, it is the scowl on mobile when he mentioned what we learned earlier.
This seems to be suitable chronologically. Are they going to ask for food first or for water?
They don't have water in the middle of the desert. This is the first thing they're going to ask for. So they asked Musa Ali Silla, what are we going to drink here?
So they asked him to do is this
as his Lord for rain?
If we claim that this is suitable because salt of the earth was revealed first and therefore it is telling the story, and giving the chronology what is the context and so it's about
the context is mentioning of blessings from the beginning remember when we started you have a nice rally with guru Murthy?
So if the story goes a little bit forward or backward, it doesn't really matter.
It's about mentioning the blessings.
This is one possible answer Allah
the other possibility nor notice in the area especially the fourth the area of Hola Hola, como Hama
eventually could open play Majima was
when our Munna when I can can
we only move right
in sorting as well, at the end of it we'll all learn it will have everyone's in Hollywood man or silver Kulu mele you bet if I was a fanatical one hour Munna King
after that immediately what is the level school?
In Al Baqarah same
after we're lacking can have
you have your career.
The connection seems to be the end of this idea.
Which is the talking about what the learner will have. So he said
What am I gonna Munna they did not do us they did not run us in any way Wella king.
But rather, they used to run themselves that he mentioned is the story of enter this city. And what did they do, as we mentioned that I've seen last time
did not heed the Command of Allah subhanaw taala they did the exact opposite instead of thanking him for this incredible conquest.
This may be connected to the end of the era before it. They did not do injustice to us. They did not run customer, brother they wronged themselves. And then he mentions the story.
Furthermore, they were explaining today, what do you resist are Mussolini how many he talks about asking for the water? And the I will take insha Allah next time
they ask Musa alayhis salam, for what? For more types of food?
Do you see that connection? It's going immediately from that to the next one. And this is a detail which is not mentioned in surah. Eros, this asking of the other types of fruit and we will get to that in sha Allah. These are some of the possibilities. And if you think about it, anything else you come across are you read in sha Allah, please let me know Allahu Taala are Allah wa and these are the treasures of the Quran that we
We seek to
try in sha Allah to understand and to unearth.
What are the steps?
Now? What happened in this ayah?
Musa alayhis salam
this this, what is this test a loser you owe me?
Who did he do is the start to because it's the Star Trek Bucha has the right.
He asked for it from whom it is self evident. It doesn't require an explanation Who else do you ask for it other than Allah subhanaw taala so it is not even mentioned that he didn't say well if he says Musa Akbar who no need, it is clear. Who else do you ask? What it is this car Musa? Nikhil me? Again, we know from Surah that Allah this was upon their request, right?
Because they are the ones who did. They asked for the extra stuff. They told us, the salah is the scar for us, what are we going to do in this arid desert without water?
You should have thought about that, before you did everything you did before all of the disobedience that you committed to deserve this punishment.
What is the status bar Musa Licchavi for holding up during the assault and hijab, you will find that this area several things in the midst
that are omitted
but are clear through the context.
So what is this guy who said he called me
for calling avoiding the Hasakah alhaja?
So we said Allah subhanaw taala Of course,
hit the store with your staff.
Which staff is this brothers and sisters?
It's the same staff that comes up
most of the staff at least.
I repeat the question Is this a magical stuff? Every time Subhan Allah, something magical happens.
Every single time Allah azza wa jal commands him, use your stuff.
And we mentioned on more than one occasion, the lesson behind it.
Allah azza wa jal doesn't need to tell him to hit your staff or hit anything else.
But you take the means, even in this it's a miracle from Allah subhanho wa taala. Do your part. Your God is to hit the stuff Allah azza wa jal commanded you do this, does it work? Does it work? Do it take the means.
It's exactly the same and everything that you do in your life takes the means. For all practical purposes, we see that these means bring about consequences. But I have a newsflash for you. This is only through Allah.
If it wasn't for Allah, these means means nothing. So when you take these means there is no guarantee that the consequences will happen.
If Allah doesn't will it
so don't say if I think that means that where's the word could know the exact opposite. You take the means and you know that it is Allah azza wa jal Who makes it happen. So he tells him, Hey, let's with your stuff.
And this possibly repeated itself, it will only happen once scholars different did it happen, what's going to happen several times, if it happened several times every single time. You have to hit it with a staff.
Not a magical stick, just regular stick. These are the miracles that Allah subhanaw taala is working
on during this discard for his people, after everything he faced from them, and how much difficulty they gave him. Again, he answered them to their request. We did this and Allah subhanaw taala tells him hit the store with your staff.
And then Sajha rocks, like
what kind of stone is this magical stone from which water flows?
Again, scholars differ about it even though there is nothing that the Quran specifies about this stone. But you will find narrations
is that a stone that was with them
that they took along that they carried with them like a special stone? Is there a stone that they just found out there in the wilderness?
Many of the narrations seem to indicate that this was a stone that they took with them.
Almost like it's a special store that they have, and they take wherever they go, as they are going around.
And whenever they need water,
which places it it's it will stop and it will gush forth. Why water for love.
Who else brothers and sisters can work this meal here, other than Allah's power in the middle of the desert,
if you are getting water from a solid stone
This is not like the idea that we will discuss in sha Allah that mentions water gushing forth
from amidst rocks. This is water coming from the rock itself, the rock doesn't have water.
And if they weren't carrying it around, this is not a big rock because you cannot carry it around. So where is the water coming from? And how does it keep gushing forth? The narrations also mentioned that when they are done with it,
it will stop. And then they will take it with them and again, whoo Sally Silla will hate it and it will give them water. Just like Allah subhanaw taala give them the miracle of a man was Sanwa from the heaven, Allah azza wa jal is now giving them miracle
water to drink from the stone
and hustling bustling,
He said, Actually, it is more of a miracle. If this was any stone,
any stool that they found, and Allah tells him, hit it with your staff, and it will bring forth what
so it's not a particular stone, but any stone
as long as you hit it, as you as Allah commanded you, Allah subhanaw taala will bring forth water for you.
Is this greater, or the miracle of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
when the water gushed forth
from between his fingers
which one is greater
as we said, we will see we always see water coming forth from within between rocks, groundwater, right? Even though in this case we said this is a little bit different. This is just a stone, right? Sitting in the desert and all of a sudden it's bringing forth water. It's an amazing miracle. They're all amazing miracles. But water coming from in between someone's fingers. This is something I don't think anyone has seen. So low on you but it was
a cool not good it biasa can hijack
java net worth.
As if it is not enough of a miracle that Allah subhanaw taala will bring forth the water from the stone. Allah subhanaw taala not actually brought for them 12 STS
we don't know quite how big the storm is.
It seems there was a lot of water coming out. Because it was it had 12 springs, maybe three in each corner.
Can it get any easier than this? Look at how easy Allah subhanaw taala is making their life
miracle water and the same number of tribes. You have 12 tribes of baby sorry, beer is 12 Springs
The Bible mentions
12 as well.
But there doesn't seem to be any mention of this miracle that it is Musa A salah, who was told to hit the stone with his staff and then Allah subhanaw taala gave them these 12 strings, they just they found it, which of this
this happened in the T as we said, because because
write C see
where it is, yeah, might be a different issue.
You have reducer, right? Well, they are 12. Exactly. And
yeah, this is I've seen this, this is mentioned geographically. And we also hear about something called the iron Musa. You heard of that as well, as opposed to Yun Musa?
Well, a lot of types of Han Allah, you will find stuff like this, where people will attribute to their own country, something or some one in relation to some of the prophets of Allah. And it's not always authentic
12 for the 12 tribes, so that they can each drink
in a way that is organized, that is in a couple
were in there will not be any
correlate between the tribes.
This is no simple matter of brothers and sisters, you are in the desert now.
And we mentioned when we talked about men was seven well, even though we were commanded, you only take what you need for the day. Don't take any more. Don't worry, the next day you will get more right. And yet some narrations mentioned that they will take more we didn't have confidence in the promise. So same here. Now, you can easily see how there may be quarreling with Allah subhanaw taala gave them out of his blessing 12 years 12 Don't quote
every people knew their place of drink.
Each tribe knows that eats will explain this for them
the middle of the desert,
of course, what do we benefit and understand from this?
water and water resources continue to this day
to be a source of conflict
that may become
worse and worse as the days come Subhanallah right.
How will people deal with it?
And how is the distribution? Very important.
Masha, Allah subhanaw taala organize this for them. When you are dealing with the public
with things in the public sphere, organize it in such a way so that there will not be quarreling. Don't say these people are uglier of Allah. These people feel Allah, you don't go on that assumption. You do your part and you distribute property
and you organize it properly.
blessing every people know from where they will get their drink.
Kulu wash Raghu
eaten drink before that, sort of. We said Fen federate me with Natasha Tigner. This is for you. I gave you enough context. The first I think 15 minutes or so. So you can answer this question now in sha Allah. Because we talked about so often sort of the Bacara
so now hear from Jasmine who is
in surah 10 Ross
badger set when
them that desert.
How is it different from the data that in federate, came gushing forth, exploding out of the rock, a lot of water
It's keen, but it was a trickle wasn't much coming out.
Why doesn't allow us and
especially in the fall
fog should know it and the fog will appreciate it more
for the headphone.
Now everyone is turning to the half of next day
What could it be?
Okay, there may be more than one possibility.
Should I say more? Do you want more time to think about it?
Just say, You know what I think about it more? Well, maybe we should make groups, you know, workshops that
maybe more than one possibility.
it's telling the story, right? We set the context in surah. Devala is reminding them of the blessings.
And sort of Allah, he mentions it. So you mentioned the first thing that happens, which is the water starts coming up with tricky
when he's mentioning the blessings, he says from federal ROTC, you've got so much water coming to you. Right, a reminder from last panel Dallas blessings upon so you mentioned a lot as opposed to
In surah, Allah
it mentions that the people of Musa alayhis salaam are the ones who asked Musa right, in his discord, who can move
these people asked him
so what came out from the desert, a trickle of water in this one, what it is this moves
mentioned is Musa alayhis salam, and is this
Allah to Allah, but these are gems Subhan Allah that
are there for people who ponder deliberate over the Quran.
And this may be one of the reasons alone
that there are these nuances, these minor differences here and there. I used to always ask myself this during the heads of memorizing
small differences here a little bit of difference there and why this may be one of the reasons Subhanallah so that people can put that difference in order to discover these things to try to understand them.
But the early Magoo, Lunasin mudgeeraba. Who Kulu washoku with me still
eat and drink of the risk of the provision of Allah.
My brothers and sisters
whatever we are enjoying of food and drink and blessings is the risk of Allah subhanaw taala it's all it all belongs to Allah azza wa jal
what ever it is and however much you have a hand in it
this is truly
bonafide Lee risky
they have no hand in it whatsoever. Right?
Allah azza wa jal give them the water from a stone
and men was silver from the heavens
Did they have any hand in it?
This is the risk of a loss.
Does that mean that when we have a hand in it when we go after it that it is not the risk of Allah? Because I contributed because I put some effort
or is it still the risk of Allah
so the risk of Allah absolutely why can you give me some is some a hadith
When you are born
you have no hand
when you are in the inside okay okay so your risk is already written for you as soon as you are born very nice okay what else
just call a lost power but I went after it didn't didn't I also put some different did my work in I
have living so you have
got to create and
he created you and he provided for you yes sir
ah Baraka Luffy coulomb
firm should do your fight and eat from
his risk, it still isn't.
Even if you go after it.
It's still his and he gave it to you and he helped you and granted it to you.
The Prophet also lives and
if you rely on that isolation, truly and genuinely, he will grant you and give you risk as he grants and gives risks to the birds.
Just doesn't do
what I want to be.
It goes out hungry and it comes back full.
is going the bird is going ahead and doing its part as well.
It's working hard looking for something to eat.
But it is the risk of Allah subhanaw taala
everything in the universe you have Allah, Allah azza wa jal has given us some food
the animals and insects they all have their foods and Allah subhanaw taala made it
in such a way that it is a cycle. One thing is food for another Subhanallah and sometimes one things waste is food for another
and vice versa.
wash probably listening now.
This is the IRS This
is the stop motion recovery. This is about water
issues I drink. He says could you worship?
Yes of course. A reference to that before
so Allah azza wa jal gave us the water and he's giving you the food Kulu
while we fill our way on CD,
after telling them to eat and drink of those for Allah
do not go straight in corruption.
Allah azza wa jal gave you a blessing.
You sent a loss of power dialer for his blessing, not only thanking him verbally, through your actions
and through your gratitude, you protect this blessing that Allah azza wa jal gave you
eat and drink of the risk of Allah subhanaw taala and do not spread corruption.
It is the worst corruption
to use the blessings of Allah subhanho wa taala.
To disobey Allah
is most audacious to do
whether fin or remove CD
in English we just use the word corruption
in Arabic we have several words for it. What
what is what a tax
so the verb this I see
and scholar said this is a shouldn't don't give sad. The worst of facade the worst of corruption and corrupting.
So feel oh we move CD.
In other words, do not go around spreading corruption woof CD
spreading corruption in the earth.
Show your gratitude to Allah, Allah for his blessings and facade, if said is one of the greatest skills
that our Ummah suffers and the whole world suffers from
We are not just talking about absolutely deplorable moral corruption firsthand. But everything else as well. Everything that has to do with wealth, property
corruption on every level.
And brothers and sisters the OMA unfortunately is not an exception from this
in our Muslim Ummah
where Islam commands all kinds of chastity
chastity of the neffs
for financial chastity.
Yet you see so much firsthand so much corruption.
So much lack of integrity and honesty. When it comes to
work, wealth, finances resources, when
FCD Kulu was Chicago, St. Louis
City we are connected.
Enjoy the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala do not
spread corruption and when you spread corruption, Allah subhanaw taala will then deprive you of these blessings and we see this we see a lack of
a lack of blessings because of the corruption because of not needing the commands about the islands
that have Allah to Allah Allah. Allah will send them
what are there any questions or comments?
it is the staff who said that the narrations mentioned try to mention what is the stone? What is the stone? Is it a stone they carried with them? Is it a stone that was just there in the desert? What kind of a stone so now I shouldn't say it is a stone from the door from Jerusalem tour from the mount. That was Ali Salam, scotomas. pantalla on so there were nourishes like this. As for the staff, it seems to be the stuff of Musa it is the same stuff. The same stuff with which he worked all of these other miracles. That's why I said isn't a magic stuff. Because every time there is a miracle in it, we saw all of the miracles
from the very beginning, Allah azza wa jal asked Musa Ali salaam What is this rose on itself? What is it and Allah knows how many millions of items are in that staff? That is asking pusa What is this in your hand or Musa
but it can be a really good
idea to stick
well, who should we hire Allah? Allah doesn't know this. What do you have he have
with this when he asked
I have other uses for it as well.
So now let's think about it the other way.
What is this in your hand Musa? Oh, it's just a stupid stick
up the prophets peace be upon them.
Very clear, concise, honest answer. He has been told this for the stick.
very important. May Allah not the makers of those who needed all the rage, but maybe you will.
What should we
Look into contentment and I have other uses for it. And Allah only knows what other uses you are going to use it for Musa Allen he set up and you have no idea what you are going to use it for for miracles people will be talking about for centuries Subhan Allah
so it is the stuff of course, with which you did all of the other things, throwing it and becoming the snake parting the sea.
All of that stuff, of course as well.
was inherited. I don't know.
Why do you ask? You want to find it?
People are looking for
like you said the brothers and sisters is not a magic one. Yes, it's just a stick. And it is useless if it wasn't for Allah azza wa jal working these miracles for him when he commanded
ships, basically, when you mentioned before, that what
can you explain that? Possibly could possibly Thank you very much for saying possibly, possibly did not do it faster. Because if they have done it, for example, that means or those that oppose the worship will not be here this morning. It will not be punished it
because they are they're being punished. Okay. You mean the ones in a team? Yeah.
It'd be phenomenal when they killed themselves. And it wasn't. It's not that they were all destroyed. Even that's, again, going back to that time.
The story that that mass execution happened is very, very common, and is the opinion of many. Okay. But does that mean that there was no one company? Sorry? Last No, that work?
there shouldn't be? Yes. Again, unless you leave us relative. Yeah, but this is the tongue or you're saying they were?
Either way, the IRS does not mean that there was no one from Benny Saudi left. This is not what is meant. But there was massive execution. And we even mentioned one opinion, and this is this seems to be corroborated by the Bible as well, that the people who did not worship the calf or order to kill the ones with it, right. So in that case, there were still people that were around. Yeah, it's not that there was no left from the inside.
About the facade
telling them ask them when
either have their own answers there. It's more satisfying.
is being used
the beginning of a locker you didn't see. Right? When everyone will say they are Muslim. When Allah says they are whoopsie do they are the one spreading the corruption, always the tyrants, the tyrants and dictators of the world, the spots
will always accuse the reformers of being Mussolini of spreading corruption. This is the way of the tyrants and the way of the hypocrites as we can see, they will claim to be reforming. But actually they are the ones spreading the corruption for fourth quarter public works. This is where this is where, why it comes in awareness, awareness, understanding, deep understanding, right, as the
federal funeral home, this is what he did is to have a combo. He is just
fooling his people. And when the poor people get fooled, this is their fault, where it's the awareness, where's the understanding of the Quran and the pseudonym and of the welfare of the reality to be able to judge who is the reformer and who is the Mufson? Who is the corruptor who is the tyrant
Who is trying to work for Islam and who's working against Islam? This means understanding shift and it seems that it will continue most of the
parliament social media, this is no this is no yes. Again, when we say first the comma golfer Accardo it means if you have the capacity to be fooled it is your fault.
It is your fault. Similarly, if you are fooled because of social social media or I'll take it a step further because of bots
1000s and 1000s of bots spreading garbage if you are fooled by this then that's your problem
there's a famous the famous Arabic saying when it was taught to figure out what made you this far out.
He said I didn't find anyone to stop me.
I didn't find anyone to stand in my way
to where is the awareness and understanding of the people this is why I always emphasize this point awareness. Sometimes people may think you know what are we talking about some of these things, they will never have a role in this or that especially in the public sphere.
awareness, awareness is very important.
What was the proximate age
mean during the type of time when they were last?
How does it
What are you trying to get?
Because we know that was this one was sent
it was after his 40s
and then we had this for two years. Okay, so what happened definitely
left for a long time.
For a long time, where is the abundant Johannes lived for possibly over more than
950 years he was doing Dawa.
Alpha center Ilham Sina Allah He was doing Dawa.
Maybe he has more than 1000 views. So as the Prophet SAW send them sending the authentic hadith that
Ali salaam was very cool. People were
older and they used to live a lot longer. And this has been
contracted across the ages. So it is very possible but even I don't know for sure. Because right
yeah, so meaning
No, no, he didn't. He died while they were in the TF while they were there.
Because you shatter the known is the one that took them out.
That's the type of
old age Yes. When he was old. Again, it's relative. Yes, it is relative. If you talk about Musa alayhis salam in talking about some
3000 years ago, right. So yeah, they used to live longer.
But again, he's very far from Mondays. So it wasn't the the very long ages that they used to live that was on another level
