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

And today, we will start with the famous story of the cow

00:01:09 --> 00:01:13

after which Surah Al Baqarah is unnamed.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:15


00:01:16 --> 00:01:17


00:01:19 --> 00:01:44

it is one of the last stories that is mentioned about Venezuela in which we learned about so many of the stories and even though many Israelis still mentioned afterwards, but as a story with detail like this, this is the last of those stories that we see where Allah subhanaw taala mentioned to us,

00:01:45 --> 00:01:51

the cow and then there are other verses that mentioned Bani Israel.

00:01:53 --> 00:01:55

So in these verses,

00:01:56 --> 00:01:59

Allah Subhana Allah says about that was when I shot origins from a lot of men or him

00:02:01 --> 00:02:07

What is Allah Musa earlier call me he in La Jolla, Moroccan and

00:02:11 --> 00:02:22

00:02:24 --> 00:02:31

00:02:36 --> 00:02:37

00:02:41 --> 00:02:42

I won

00:02:43 --> 00:02:46

the league lick FFI Luma to

00:02:50 --> 00:02:58

Mecca you by Ilana whoo ha order in we abou in

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

software on offer low no hurt us

00:03:07 --> 00:03:10

winning. So in these verses.

00:03:11 --> 00:03:21

Allah subhanaw taala tells us that Musa alayhis salam told when he saw eel to slaughter a cow.

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


00:03:25 --> 00:03:32

you may know that this story is actually related to something that happened at the time of Benny Israel.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:39

So there is a larger story behind it. Right and there's a context.

00:03:40 --> 00:03:42

However, subhanAllah

00:03:43 --> 00:03:57

Polycom Sera, the verses here, the way they are ordered Allah subhanaw taala tells us about Musa alayhis salam ordering them to slaughter a cow first.

00:03:59 --> 00:04:00

Later on,

00:04:01 --> 00:04:09

we will come to the verses that mentioned the context behind it, why he ordered them to slaughter a cow.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:13

There's a background, but it comes later.

00:04:15 --> 00:04:23

And usually, we would like to know the background and the context of the story, at least as human beings

00:04:25 --> 00:04:27

but Allah azza wa jal ordered it such in the Quran

00:04:29 --> 00:04:37

and thus we will go with that same order. We'll talk about the context a little bit more in sha Allah when we get to those verses.

00:04:39 --> 00:04:45

Let's just say that this story has to do with a murder that happened in Bani Israel.

00:04:48 --> 00:04:53

But Allah subhanaw taala first mentions the slaughter of the cow.

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55


00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

it might be interesting to wonder why

00:05:01 --> 00:05:31

What is carnival salad? He in Allaha, Morocco Mantis bow Baccarat. So he mentioned what happened when Musa Ali Salam commanded them and what their response was. It's very interesting, because it seems to Allahu Allah, Allah azza wa jal is emphasizing before all of the context. He's emphasizing the command the order, Allah ordered you to slaughter a cow, period.

00:05:32 --> 00:05:40

Is there a context? Is there not a context? Is there a story? Is there not a story? Is there a reason?

00:05:41 --> 00:05:50

Or is there not a reason? It doesn't matter, Allah or did you just let her a cow? He started with that. We'll talk about why later.

00:05:51 --> 00:05:58

Slaughter the cow Musa Ali Salam tells them, Allah ordered you to slaughter a cow.

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

And Allah subhanaw taala tells us about this first.

00:06:04 --> 00:06:16

So the emphasis is on the command. And the emphasis is on heeding and responding to the Command of Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:18 --> 00:06:23

is the reason of course there's a reason Allah azza wa jal is the most wise.

00:06:24 --> 00:06:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala does everything with wisdom.

00:06:30 --> 00:06:33

In fact, we may even attribute some wisdom

00:06:35 --> 00:06:47

and knowledge and some intellect to human beings. Why did you do this? You do something strange that someone finds bizarre? Why did you do this?

00:06:49 --> 00:07:04

Immediately we assume that we as human beings are doing things out of some intellect. There's some reason behind it. This is human beings. So imagine Allah subhanaw taala. You don't think he commanded for a reason? Of course, there's a reason.

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

But should you connect and predicate? Your obedience on the reason? Now, Allah is teaching us first you will be.

00:07:20 --> 00:07:27

First you heed the command, do what you're told. Ask questions later.

00:07:28 --> 00:07:30

Sometimes even as parents,

00:07:31 --> 00:07:40

they will do that with their kids just do what you're told. I'll tell you later, you'll know why later. This is a lot of brothers and sisters.

00:07:41 --> 00:07:57

Do what you're told. You will know why later. And we will go into that later inshallah we're going to follow the order as well. And this is in so many things, unfortunately, even as Muslims at times why?

00:07:59 --> 00:08:05

Why should I do this? Why did Allah command this? This is not to say that these questions are wrong.

00:08:07 --> 00:08:17

This is not to say that these questions are misplaced? No, it's very important to learn to seek the wisdom.

00:08:18 --> 00:08:35

It's very good to do so. But after you read the command, obey, obey first. And you will find out later. Sometimes brothers and sisters, there may be things we don't quite understand why. Right?

00:08:37 --> 00:08:49

Why is it that Allah azza wa jal commanded this? Some things take time. Take a certain level of knowledge and piety and obedience to truly then

00:08:51 --> 00:08:52


00:08:54 --> 00:09:03

what is behind that command? It's not always if it was immediately obvious to everyone, then where's the nuance?

00:09:04 --> 00:09:07

No, this is the religion of Allah subhanaw taala

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

oh my god the Allah Allah when he wanted to kiss the Blackstone famous incident.

00:09:16 --> 00:09:31

He's not sure why. He said wala if it wasn't for the fact that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, kiss you I would not. You are just the stone, I know that. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did it, that's it.

00:09:33 --> 00:09:36

And he is to be independently obeyed.

00:09:38 --> 00:09:48

No one is to be independently obeyed in this universe except Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam That's why I'll tell Allah Azza wa Rasul

00:09:50 --> 00:09:56

because the prophets of salaam will never command anything but obedience to Allah subhanaw taala.

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

So sometimes we may wonder

00:10:00 --> 00:10:04

People will ask, What about the Salawat? Why is Fisher two?

00:10:06 --> 00:10:07

Why is the herb for

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

another three?

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

Do we need to find answers to these questions?

00:10:16 --> 00:10:17

Are there clear answers?

00:10:20 --> 00:10:31

There might be HDI that why is it two? Well, it's a little bit easier because you're getting up early in the morning. Why is it four? Because you haven't prayed for a long time and then you're gonna pray for

00:10:32 --> 00:10:43

but again, what? What does this benefit us we know Allah Subhana Allah knows best. He commanded such that's it. So no Altana we hear and we obey.

00:10:44 --> 00:11:39

When we get to the end of certain Bukhara verse which shook the hearts of the Sahaba or the Allah homage Marine. The Prophet SAW Selim tells them, do you want to be like, the former peoples and say we hear and we disobey. They said, we hear and we obey. And then everything fell into place. Just do what you're told. We hear and we obey, and hamdulillah and this is not out of blind, blind faith. Be careful. Oh, just hear and obey. Don't ask questions. That means you guys are just following blind faith. You have no idea what you're doing. And you just say, oh, yeah, God ordered it. So we just do it. No, no, no, this is not blind faith. We've already established faith based on understanding and

00:11:39 --> 00:12:03

knowledge, seen the all encompassing wisdom of Allah subhanho wa taala. And after that, we know anything that comes from Allah azza wa jal, we know it is out of wisdom. Whether I realize it or not, maybe I didn't realize it but someone more knowledgeable than me has realized it.

00:12:05 --> 00:12:10

So we're here and we obey the first part that is mentioned SubhanAllah.

00:12:12 --> 00:12:20

With Bala masala homie, in Elia, Moroccan and Mahoba, Cara, but chronologically,

00:12:21 --> 00:12:30

very possible. That's not the way it happened. Something happened before that, that's not that relevant now.

00:12:31 --> 00:12:37

It will be mentioned later. Right now Musa alayhis salam tells them slaughter occur.

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

Not only that,

00:12:42 --> 00:12:46

in Allaha, Morocco, he knows his people.

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

If it was from Musa alayhis salam, hypothetically, they should obey.

00:12:54 --> 00:13:15

He will be independently obeyed as well. He is the messenger of Allah. But no, he says it directly he doesn't leave any room for them to doubt in Allah HYAH Morrow come Verily, Allah commands user anything clearer than that. And the whole Bukhara slaughter a cow

00:13:17 --> 00:13:18


00:13:19 --> 00:13:20

tacky do now who

00:13:22 --> 00:13:27

do you mock us? Do you take us in ridicule Subhanak era?

00:13:28 --> 00:13:32

First of all, Allah azza wa jal ordered them to slaughter a cow.

00:13:35 --> 00:13:37

could have been anything else.

00:13:40 --> 00:13:41

Could have been any other animal?

00:13:42 --> 00:13:43

Why the cow?

00:13:45 --> 00:13:58

Scholars of the facility immediately mentioned an email in my wordy saying that this has to do with the fact that they were worshipping the calf before.

00:13:59 --> 00:14:10

So Allah azza wa jal is going to slaughter that Kufa in their heart through slaughtering of their purported false god.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:18

Not only the calf, the mother of the calf,

00:14:20 --> 00:14:25

if they were worshiping the calf, this is the mother you slaughter it.

00:14:26 --> 00:14:42

Allah azza wa jal told us that their love of that calf was in their hearts. What will surely will fit her to be him we'll be covering him. So Allah subhanaw taala is going to obliterate

00:14:43 --> 00:14:51

that love and that Cooper that was in their hearts, slaughter a cow. It was difficult for them

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

was very difficult for them as we will see.

00:14:56 --> 00:14:57

They didn't want to

00:14:58 --> 00:14:59

but this is possible

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

Be one of the main reasons that Allah azza wa jal ordered them to slaughter a cow.

00:15:08 --> 00:15:12

slaughter a cow notice Baqarah

00:15:13 --> 00:15:18

Baccarat, Nikita and Malika in Baku until the Bajo Baqarah

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


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

a cow

00:15:23 --> 00:15:28

and the cow. Okay. The first reply by the Jews

00:15:30 --> 00:15:31

attack is when

00:15:33 --> 00:15:34

do you take us in ridicule?

00:15:36 --> 00:15:39

This could be because of the context

00:15:41 --> 00:15:52

being the murder that we mentioned that happened in Bani Israel. So what does slaughtering a cow have to do with the issue of the murder?

00:15:53 --> 00:15:56

That's a possibility. Follow the document Luna who's.

00:15:58 --> 00:16:00

On the other hand, it may not be

00:16:02 --> 00:16:07

related to that context, even if they were ordered to slaughter a cow.

00:16:08 --> 00:16:20

Without that connection, without that background, maybe this would be the reply. Who knows? Well, because they don't want to slaughter a cow. Why do you want us to slaughter a cow?

00:16:21 --> 00:16:26

Aren't they always doubting Musashi Ceylon when he told them who do

00:16:28 --> 00:16:38

Murthy that Kumiko take the Torah. Take it with strength and determination. Allah commands Allah says and they would say,

00:16:39 --> 00:16:57

how do we know? Let Allah speak to us directly. Let us see Allah azza wa jal directly, so they were constantly doubting in the first place. So now if he comes in, he says, Go slaughter a cow. They won't accept Okay, Allah orders you to slaughter a cow. What?

00:16:58 --> 00:17:00

Why are you mocking us?

00:17:01 --> 00:17:09

This is the idea. So we can see it very possibly even if it wasn't connected to the issue of the murder at a toughie. Luna was

00:17:10 --> 00:17:14

Allahu Akbar, this is a huge insult.

00:17:15 --> 00:17:18

It is, but not too many strong enough.

00:17:19 --> 00:17:20

To Musa alayhis salam.

00:17:22 --> 00:17:32

They are saying Luna Huzzah. A person thinks oh Musa is mocking them? Nah, Allah. He says I would have been a an akuna minal Jaya Healy.

00:17:33 --> 00:17:43

I seek refuge in Allah then I be of the ignorant. This is mocking Musa Ali's. Is this what you think of Musa Ali salah.

00:17:44 --> 00:17:48

This is your idea of the prophet

00:17:49 --> 00:18:01

who has been through so much with you has been so patient with you, Allah and anyone else. God knows what you would have done. We know you will know Sally's Salam. Eventually he left his people, right?

00:18:03 --> 00:18:05

Mousavi Sam stayed with them.

00:18:06 --> 00:18:08

Though they drove him mad.

00:18:11 --> 00:18:16

Yet now, they continue to mark.

00:18:17 --> 00:18:21

They think that um, that he is saying this and just

00:18:22 --> 00:18:33

are you claiming that Musa alayhis salam would play around with the words of Allah with the commands of Allah subhanaw taala

00:18:34 --> 00:18:37

this is your idea of a prophet.

00:18:38 --> 00:18:44

We would exonerate maybe just a regular person who is a good person

00:18:46 --> 00:18:54

of such mockery. It's not you that's been mocked. You are mocking Allah and His Prophet when you say at a tuxedo now who's

00:18:55 --> 00:19:04

How dare you say that the Prophet will joke around about Allah commending something. It's almost like an accusation of Allah. But

00:19:06 --> 00:19:12

also, he's just making this up. Allah did not command he just made it up. He's making your life difficult. Is that what it is?

00:19:13 --> 00:19:21

Yeah, Allah. What Kufa is this at a turkey donor who's well, so we need to see it from that perspective.

00:19:22 --> 00:19:32

Not from the perspective of oh, we're being mocked. You are now not mocking the order of Allah and the Messenger of Allah. Allah you see, salatu salam,

00:19:34 --> 00:19:46

who did so much for you saved you from Iran and continues to bring the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala to you. And they say the turkey Luna huzefa

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

This is a mockery of a prophet.

00:19:51 --> 00:19:52


00:19:55 --> 00:19:59

if you mark the deen if you mark the Prophet

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

This is a very serious violation.

00:20:03 --> 00:20:14

And in fact, when we look at the story of Al Baqarah, it is related to all of the things that we saw in some of the past stories.

00:20:16 --> 00:20:21

You should not mark the dean. They marked when they were told to go into Palestine.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:31

You should take things seriously. Who will not tell you there can be Kuwa the deen is not a joke.

00:20:34 --> 00:20:57

And here you are now mocking Musa alayhis salam. We know Allah subhanaw taala told us they mocked him in other ways. Yeah, you are Latina airmen. That are cool. Okay. Lavina Musa Ferber Rahula, whom in Hollywood Kirner in the LA he were jihad, or you believe do not be like those.

00:20:59 --> 00:21:22

Don't be like those who insulted who harmed. Musa alayhis salam. They insulted him because of his difficulty in speech. Allah subhanaw taala exonerated him, so they would mock this is what they do. They mock the mock Allah and they mock Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:21:23 --> 00:21:29

at a ducky donor, who's who immediately look at the reply of Musa Ali's

00:21:31 --> 00:21:33

was the villain Hakuna manager Haley.

00:21:36 --> 00:21:48

It's interesting, he uses that term. He didn't say I was a biller, an akuna minal was Dazeem. I seek refuge in Allah that I be of the ones who mock.

00:21:50 --> 00:21:59

He said, I want to build an akuna minal Jaya, and of course, the villa tells you, this is very serious, how dare you accuse me of this?

00:22:02 --> 00:22:10

If He, God forbid, hypothetically, a messenger would never do that. If he was mocking, and he made this up.

00:22:11 --> 00:22:15

And he just said, God orders you to slaughter a cow and he didn't.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:19

He would be of the ignorant, wouldn't he?

00:22:21 --> 00:22:55

Know how they Salam said, also I seek refuge that I be of the ignorant when he asked for Allah to save his son, thinking that he is from his family and Allah says in nowadays I mean, Alec. So if Musa alayhis salam, if he had done that, hypothetically he would be ignorant. Allah azza wa jal tells the prophets of Salaam, one, Allah Allah, Allah will lead 100 men who believe me, through Malacca, and I mean who will watch him,

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


00:22:59 --> 00:23:13

if anyone, if a prophet hypothetically and it would never happen, Allah knows who is choosing for the message, if any of them were to fabricate something against Allah, Allah will take them

00:23:17 --> 00:23:25

and of course, the Prophets and Messengers peace be upon them all are the furthest from such a thing. So this is one aspect. Another aspect

00:23:27 --> 00:23:31

if you mark people that way, you are the ignorant?

00:23:33 --> 00:23:37

Allah azza wa jal says larious her Coleman, Tom HRSA yaku

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

Well, I

00:23:40 --> 00:23:41

mean is

00:23:42 --> 00:23:45

right, the idea continues.

00:23:46 --> 00:23:55

You don't mark people otherwise you are the ignorant one when you do so. Because when you mark others, you immediately attribute to yourself

00:23:56 --> 00:24:14

some superiority you derogate to yourself a certain level that the others do not have. So Allah is telling us that person is the ignorant one in that case. Furthermore, call it out to be like an akuna minal Jahai Lee.

00:24:18 --> 00:24:39

If you claim if you think that it is even possible that I am mocking and I am fabricated gate fabricating something against Allah subhanaw taala you are the ignorant one. Caller and how do we learn? akuna minal Jaya Heaney, I seek refuge in Allah, that I be one of the ignorant like you

00:24:41 --> 00:24:48

in what you are claiming now because this is the ultimate ignorance that you accuse your prophet

00:24:49 --> 00:24:51

of mocking

00:24:53 --> 00:24:58

and making just with the commands of Allah subhanaw taala

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


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

Ha. How to be line Hakuna manager Hailey.

00:25:05 --> 00:25:08

Winona Rebecca Ubu learn Allah here.

00:25:11 --> 00:25:12

So now

00:25:13 --> 00:25:19

they said to him, call on your Lord, Pilate will another buck for him.

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


00:25:22 --> 00:25:24

is it your Lord as well?

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

With the Roland Robuck call on your Lord?

00:25:30 --> 00:25:32

Why is it call on our Lord?

00:25:33 --> 00:25:36

Call on our Lord who helped us?

00:25:37 --> 00:25:42

Who wants the best for us who saved us in the rolling our buck.

00:25:43 --> 00:25:48

It's all it's a history of mockery of Allah and the messengers of Allah

00:25:53 --> 00:25:55

when the rule and our buck,

00:25:56 --> 00:25:57

call on your Lord,

00:25:58 --> 00:25:59

you by Ilana he,

00:26:01 --> 00:26:03

to make clear to us what it is

00:26:06 --> 00:26:08

the moosari Salem

00:26:09 --> 00:26:11

tell them to

00:26:13 --> 00:26:15

invent a spaceship

00:26:17 --> 00:26:19

or a rocket ship,

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

or something

00:26:23 --> 00:26:25

radically impossible to imagine.

00:26:28 --> 00:26:33

Let him clarify to us what it is. You don't know what a cow is?

00:26:35 --> 00:26:37

Then you are indeed ignorant.

00:26:38 --> 00:26:43

Then you are possibly just like the cow. In fact, the cow won't be better.

00:26:46 --> 00:26:58

Up here, let me let him clarify to us. Some maybe in the transaction, you will read that it is saying let him detail it for us. But actually, that's not what they requested.

00:27:00 --> 00:27:20

They didn't ask about its age or its color, or its characteristics. They just said what it is, what is it? He said slaughter account? It's very simple, straightforward. Do as you're told. No. It's not the way it works not with them.

00:27:21 --> 00:27:24

There are conditions and preconditions. And that's why God forbid,

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

when a Muslim does that,

00:27:28 --> 00:27:36

or something similar? Then he's acting similarly to this clan of bunnies, right?

00:27:38 --> 00:27:45

Where you start putting conditions, why, where, what? Maybe how?

00:27:48 --> 00:27:56

So they say, let him clarify to us. Call on your Lord and let him clarify to us what it is.

00:27:57 --> 00:28:03

So Musa alayhis salam tells them now he could have responded immediately.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:13

He didn't respond immediately. Notice in the fall who memorize this verse know this, so call it rolling.

00:28:15 --> 00:28:18

He call in who? You're cool.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:35

So Musa didn't just say yes, 1234 QA Allah He sent in now who you're cool. He says, ALLAH says in other words, notice the clarity.

00:28:37 --> 00:28:45

He knows his people and even then they're arguing. He told you it is Allah the first time he's telling you it is Allah the second time Allah tells you

00:28:46 --> 00:28:49

are not making this up. How dare you.

00:28:51 --> 00:28:52

Allah tells you

00:28:55 --> 00:29:01

enough who you're calling in Nakaba twin love her. Well.

00:29:03 --> 00:29:13

So now he explains Allah tells you that it is a cow. There is neither far end nor big.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:16


00:29:18 --> 00:29:22

Yeah, kind of difficult. Not something we use in our everyday Arabic.

00:29:23 --> 00:29:34

Farid means as the first serene from the Sahaba Natalia and said that it is an older cow, an old cow.

00:29:36 --> 00:29:41

It could be used for other things as well. to mean something big.

00:29:42 --> 00:29:43


00:29:44 --> 00:29:45


00:29:46 --> 00:29:54

It's not talking about size per se, but it's talking about age. So laughs It should not be very old.

00:29:56 --> 00:29:59

And we know if they clearly don't want

00:30:00 --> 00:30:09

to slaughter, they'd like to slaughter you know anything. The worst possible the weakest, the infirm the, you know?

00:30:11 --> 00:30:16

Had they done it? It might have been enough. They could have

00:30:17 --> 00:30:21

but now no. Okay, you're asking love? No,

00:30:22 --> 00:30:29

you should not slaughter one that is very old or you know just about to die. Love Harold

00:30:30 --> 00:30:34

Welbeck nor should it be too young. Okay?

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

One that has not given birth,

00:30:40 --> 00:30:41

somewhere in the middle

00:30:42 --> 00:30:44

and the middle is always good.

00:30:45 --> 00:30:47

The middle is always nice.

00:30:48 --> 00:30:58

And it is from such a verse and other similar verses in the Quran, where people will extract certain wisdom.

00:30:59 --> 00:31:08

Proverbs adages right meanings. So you hear this all the time, how you will avoid it was not

00:31:09 --> 00:31:10

this is not a hadith.

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

But we know that the middle is good. The best of things is that which is in the middle. And we know that this is omitted was AKA, we know about all of this, but when when you hear this as an Arabic proverb, yes, you may extract it from a verse similar to this

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

law because while I won

00:31:34 --> 00:31:40

the sorry, Florida will epic. I won Boehner Nick,

00:31:41 --> 00:31:43

somewhere in between somewhere in the middle.

00:31:44 --> 00:31:52

So I won. Again, many of the Sahaba antipyrine said it is a nurse in the middle, somewhere in the middle.

00:31:55 --> 00:31:56


00:31:57 --> 00:32:03

a demand Tabari mentions that hawan also refers to something

00:32:04 --> 00:32:07

that has happened several times.

00:32:09 --> 00:32:17

So how to buy one is something it's a war that has happened several times. And in this context, it means

00:32:18 --> 00:32:25

that it may have given birth once or twice, but not more than that. So it's somewhere in the middle.

00:32:27 --> 00:32:30

Between foreign and

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

and here for you, Arab and Arabic enthusiasts.

00:32:41 --> 00:32:47

Whether it be grown one r1 Here is not an adjective for the

00:32:48 --> 00:32:55

left variable, whether it be Crona hawan, no Lasar even big r1 is Muqtada.

00:32:56 --> 00:33:06

Our non Benedek love her is one winner. So even if you're reciting don't say laugh out loud because that makes no sense.

00:33:08 --> 00:33:32

BiC Irwin, Dana, Derek or if you continue, then it's okay. However, don't be in a delicate somewhere in the middle. Right? I want him being authentic. Follow my rule. He knows. Musa alayhis salam is stopping it right there. Stop asking questions. Stop being stupid. Stop going back and forth. Stop wasting time.

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

Do what you're told thymoma tomorrow there now it is clear.

00:33:39 --> 00:33:40

And this is wisdom.

00:33:41 --> 00:33:52

And this is what Sally said I'm helping them. Had they stopped there. No, there's more. There's a lot more that I Luma maroon do what you are told.

00:33:55 --> 00:33:56

My brothers and sisters.

00:33:57 --> 00:34:04

We remind ourselves for follow by tomorrow. Do what you are told.

00:34:05 --> 00:34:07

Believe me you will discover their wisdom.

00:34:10 --> 00:34:32

And that's if you don't already know their wisdom. And we know the wisdom in so much that we do already. Farhatullah tomorrow. Yes, but it's difficult. Yes, it's difficult What if you do not do it? Things will become even more difficult because Allah azza wa jal only wants is for you. He doesn't want difficulty.

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

Falling man took my room. We need to train ourselves. This is what Allah subhanaw taala says, I do it.

00:34:44 --> 00:34:46

For her Luma took Morrow

00:34:47 --> 00:34:50

partnered with an Arabic Arabic Elana Mala.

00:34:51 --> 00:34:53

So, again,

00:34:54 --> 00:34:59

this is clearly now you see who's mocking. Now you see who

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

Many attacking the man who are

00:35:04 --> 00:35:07

you making a mockery of Musa Ali Salam

00:35:09 --> 00:35:10

and his Lord

00:35:12 --> 00:35:15

one more time God, call on your Lord.

00:35:16 --> 00:35:29

You think Musa alayhis salam just picks up the phone and calls Allah subhanaw taala or just you know as if anytime he just converses with Allah subhanaw taala What is this?

00:35:31 --> 00:35:34

Or maybe Allah is at your beck and call

00:35:36 --> 00:35:37

it seems that's what they think.

00:35:39 --> 00:35:41

Whenever they want yeah, just call Allah.

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

Go talk to ALLAH SubhanA QA What is this?

00:35:48 --> 00:35:49

Audacity that they have

00:35:51 --> 00:35:53

got it running around Becca, you may learn.

00:35:56 --> 00:36:03

Okay, so now Musa alayhis salam told them Allah tells you and he showed he

00:36:05 --> 00:36:16

now gave you or eliminated many of the cows because he stipulated the age group somewhere in the middle. Now they're asking about color.

00:36:18 --> 00:36:29

Color the Roland Ron Baca Ubu Lenna Allah will know what is its color. So it is quite clear you can see they simply do not want to do this.

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

And this is just buying time. They're just wasting time. Okay. You bet you let them

00:36:38 --> 00:36:44

all in who pool again? says not for me.

00:36:46 --> 00:36:55

He says to them. He says Allah tells you in now we are coding in Boca Raton software. Ah.

00:36:56 --> 00:36:58

It is a yellow cow

00:37:02 --> 00:37:08

not many yellow cows. Anybody seen a yellow cow before? Raise your hand?

00:37:09 --> 00:37:13

Anyone? Anybody who's into farming? No.

00:37:15 --> 00:37:17

Yes. Yellow.

00:37:19 --> 00:37:21

Brown light brown.

00:37:23 --> 00:37:30

Yeah, yellow Subhanak era Boca Raton, Sephora. Lau Akbar.

00:37:31 --> 00:37:36

You did it to yourselves. You did it to yourselves.

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

the narrator's that mentioned the story, such as rb the salmony.

00:37:46 --> 00:37:51

And I will eylea Rafi I've been around for 500 marohn.

00:37:53 --> 00:37:55

They mentioned very clearly and they are of the type theory.

00:37:57 --> 00:38:06

Had this slotted any cow in the beginning it would have been fine. All the young green, blue, anything slaughter a cow.

00:38:09 --> 00:38:10

But no.

00:38:12 --> 00:38:24

Not only Sephora. So we might say you said brown maybe light brown close to yellow. No Sephora Cariloha bright yellow.

00:38:26 --> 00:38:32

Where can I find a car like this? A bright yellow cow circa Aloha

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

desert, a bright yellow color

00:38:39 --> 00:38:41

some of them have a screen

00:38:42 --> 00:38:44

here may have applied

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

a rule

00:38:47 --> 00:38:51

about the color yellow, where if it is

00:38:53 --> 00:38:54

a certain type of yellow

00:38:56 --> 00:38:59

it may actually be similar to black.

00:39:01 --> 00:39:15

Okay, so it's a slightly different kind of yellow. So some of the diversity may have given the opinion that here Sephora means black. But actually this is doesn't seem to be the case.

00:39:18 --> 00:39:21

For more than one reason number one,

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

this idea that talking about the color yellow

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

actually refers to black applies to camels. And exhibit Yes. When Arabs would talk about camels.

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

They may say that it is yellow.

00:39:43 --> 00:39:46

Looking like black meaning black.

00:39:47 --> 00:39:59

And this is how some of the scholars and professors understood Jamala tune so Okay, meaning black, not yellow. This is the first thing that is applies to cameras. It doesn't have

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

Lie to cows or other animals. Number two, if you want to say that it is very black in Arabic, you will not say a sweat Falcon.

00:40:14 --> 00:40:16

You will say as what Halleck

00:40:17 --> 00:40:19

or other started maybe

00:40:21 --> 00:40:29

you will not say fatter. So here it seems Allahu Allah it is yellow, bright, a bright yellow cow

00:40:32 --> 00:40:39

Allah didn't want this for them. They brought it on themselves. They asked what is its color?

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

Shirt the do for shirt that Allahu Alicia, they are making things difficult so Allah made it difficult for them.

00:40:48 --> 00:40:52

falconwood Aloha, a bright yellow color

00:40:53 --> 00:40:59

to su novoline. Now this is another condition. Brothers and sisters. This is another stipulation.

00:41:01 --> 00:41:13

It doesn't seem to be only related to right yellow, it might be bright yellow, but it doesn't look very nice. No to so Runa

00:41:14 --> 00:41:47

it is something pleasing to every eye that sees it. This is making it even more difficult, bright yellow so lovely and beautiful and attractive that anyone who sees it will be amazed by it. Subhanak Europe Okay, Allah azza wa jal is teaching them a lesson with each of those which eat with each of those stipulations. Allah is teaching them a lesson. Lafond is going well. Our Nick, this is a lesson for you stop, they find

00:41:48 --> 00:42:03

no Nyla whoo ha. Okay. It has to be bright yellow and has to be pleasing to the observer. Stop. They still went on, as we will see, we will continue Shala next time. So rule novelry.

00:42:05 --> 00:42:07

It's becoming more and more difficult now.

00:42:10 --> 00:42:25

They technically have more and more of an excuse now? How are we going to find it, we'll never be able to find such a cow. And that's probably what they were asked in the first place up if you keep asking. And it keeps getting tighter and tighter. Right.

00:42:26 --> 00:42:35

And then eventually we'll have an excuse. Right Subhanallah Chiara, these kinds of games, the excellent these games.

00:42:37 --> 00:43:01

And this is what they do. Even in modern day politics. It's all games. It is games, from beginning to end. Right? Come, let's speak, let's do let's negotiate. And they just keep swallowing more and more land. This is what they do best games, buy time, waste time, say things and confuse things.

00:43:03 --> 00:43:07

The Lord was that that sovereign? Very this story.

00:43:09 --> 00:43:15

Interestingly, in one form or another is also mentioned in the Bible.

00:43:18 --> 00:43:33

And now I think you are experts at possibly guesstimating how it appears in the Bible. If you haven't read about it already. We've seen time and time again. The

00:43:34 --> 00:43:35


00:43:36 --> 00:43:43

in one way or another somehow exonerates them, right removes blame.

00:43:44 --> 00:43:50

So how do you think the story appeared in the Bible? Just based on what I told you?

00:43:58 --> 00:44:05

Very simple. It's just you know, think simply don't it's not very complicated. Question and Answer to what that

00:44:06 --> 00:44:07

was told to the cow. And that's

00:44:08 --> 00:44:11

okay. That's a good guess.

00:44:14 --> 00:44:25

There was no questioning. You're right. There were no questions. It wasn't them asking, Oh, tell us what it is and how it looks and what color and this and that none of that is there.

00:44:26 --> 00:44:35

It's just Oh, God ordered them to slaughter a cow. Actually, God ordered them to slaughter a red heifer.

00:44:36 --> 00:44:42

A red heifer. A heifer is a cow, but before giving birth.

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

So again,

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

not giving birth, not too old, that hasn't been yoked, meaning that has not been used for plowing the earth as we'll see. The next is next time in sha Allah. Very similar.

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

Again, a render heifer that has not been yoked in any way hasn't been used for plowing the Earth. Okay, so it's a specific type of cow but Oh, God ordered this Oh, immediately God ordered this. This is what was, this is the part that we can you know, we'll just modify here we can erase this bar

00:45:22 --> 00:45:23

God ordered this

00:45:25 --> 00:45:28

the back and forth between you and your profit

00:45:29 --> 00:45:34

and marking the profit and marking Allah no this disappeared Subhanak era

00:45:35 --> 00:45:53

God ordered Oh, God ordered them something difficult. I rent heifer that hasn't been used for anything, a beautiful cow, oh God has ordered them to do difficult things, and they are implementing and they are obeying Subhana Kyara

00:45:55 --> 00:45:58

all of that disappeared. But there again

00:45:59 --> 00:46:15

it's not for this purpose. It's not related to the murder. It's just related to ritual washing and cleansing to long story that you can read in numbers. So Subhanak era,

00:46:16 --> 00:46:23

but these are now red heifer red is not yellow, right.

00:46:25 --> 00:46:26

But you will find

00:46:28 --> 00:46:53

that there may be some of their scholars, Jewish scholars will actually interpreted the word as yellow, even though usually it is translated from Hebrew that it means read, but some have commented on this and said that actually this is yellow, not red. So this may also be a further

00:46:54 --> 00:46:55


00:46:57 --> 00:46:59

in the text,

00:47:00 --> 00:47:23
