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

We'll be learning Amina shame on your ad. bs mean.

00:00:19--> 00:00:28

Excellence presents jewels from the Holy Quran, a series of lectures by Mufti Ismail Ibn Musa menke.

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

Lecture 13 to 15 to 16 in quarter Salam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim In the name of Allah most Gracious, Most Merciful. Al hamdu lillahi wa kafa sallallahu wasallam ah Baraka Allah.

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

All praises due to Allah subhanho wa Taala complete blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and all his companions and all of us may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us the true followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and may He bless us all. Honor the rule ama beloved brothers and sisters and dearest listeners, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:22--> 00:02:03

has mentioned in Surah tilaka have the story of al Qaeda with Musa alayhi salatu was salam, where once Mousavi Salam was asked who was most knowledgeable at naturally being the Prophet at the time, he answered, he was the most knowledgeable and Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to show him that if Allah wills he can grant a different type of knowledge to some of his creatures. So Allah subhanho wa Taala told him yamasa if you follow a certain route, then at a certain point, you will find a certain worshipper of mine, and you will learn something from him that you do not know. So musala is Salatu was Salam couldn't wait to meet this man. And he followed the path and he went, and having

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

seen certain signs that he was told and

00:02:06--> 00:02:13

shown by Allah subhanho wa Taala. He then realized that this was the man and he told us men.

00:02:14--> 00:02:18

Can I be with you for a moment? Can I spend some time with you?

00:02:19--> 00:02:58

This was al Qaeda, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also told us the story and he says musala is salatu wa salam asked to spend the time with Alfredo. From this, we learn that it is very, very important that when there is someone more knowledgeable than us, we take time to go and spend with them so that we can learn in their company. masala is Salatu was Salam it was simple for him to sit without him and tell him look teach me a thing or two. But he didn't do that. He said, let me spend some time with you. Because when you see how they live there 24 seven that day, and you will learn lots and lots of things. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the opportunities to spend time

00:02:58--> 00:03:10

at the feet of the Dhamma and May Allah grant us the ability to respect them and to sacrifice from our busy schedules to spend some time with Allah. So masala salatu wa sallam was

00:03:11--> 00:03:51

allowed time to spend with this man, Allah Hebrew. And he was told that look under one condition. What is the condition? That condition is that don't ask me if there is anything you don't understand. Wait until I explain it to you. Don't question what I do. So the musala salatu wa salam said no problem, I will fulfill that condition. They began to walk. After some time they jumped into a certain boats and this man made a hole in the boat. And Mashallah salatu wa sallam said, Why are you making a hole in this boat? What's why it belongs to some innocent people here, you're just making a hole. You are damaging the property that belongs to someone else. So al Qaeda told him

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

along a pole in Al Qaeda.

00:03:55--> 00:04:33

Maria Sabo, didn't I tell you, you won't be able to bear patience. I told you not to ask me. I told you wait, when the time comes, I'll explain to you what it's all about. You will see that at some point. This was inspiration given to Alfredo by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he said, Oh, LA to his Navy man as he too. Don't hold it against me. The fact that I've forgotten don't punish me. I forgot. Now it's okay. I won't do it again. Musa alayhis salam Alayhi Salam says, So Alfredo said all right, no problem. Let's walk. Let's carry on. As they walked. They saw a young man. This man Alfredo killed him. So musala his salat wa sallam automatically asked, hey, how can you kill an

00:04:33--> 00:04:44

innocent man he has a youngster we don't even know him. Next thing you execute him and you carry on like nothing has happened. So he says, and this is now the beginning of the 16th chapter of the Quran that we started with tonight.

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

In

00:04:49--> 00:04:49

Delta Yama

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

Ebony

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

said didn't I

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

I tell you that you won't be able to understand what I'm doing. You won't bear patience regarding what you see coming from me. So Musa alayhis salam said, Oh, I'm sorry. Now if I question anything you do, now you don't have to accompany me now you can kick me out of your company, your companionship. So they agreed, they continued, and as they continued, they went into a certain town, and that the people of the town were asked to grant them some food, some accommodation and so on. And these people refused to entertain them. They refused. The town said, Look, you people can move you can carry on, we don't want to see you here. They refuse to entertain to visitors or some

00:05:38--> 00:05:58

visitors. So as they were walking out of that little town, they noticed a wall that was about to collapse. So it took some time, and he some effort and energy, and he went and he repaired the wall. He made it straight once again. So musala salatu wa sallam told him Lu Shi tala tala he

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

you know these people didn't even want to entertain us now you are fixing their wall for nothing. If you wanted we could have collected some money for fixing this wall. Why did you just fix it for free like this? So this is when al Qaeda says

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

iraq Albania Kobani rabine Casa una Bo Kavita De Lima.

00:06:21--> 00:06:42

This is now the splitting point between me and you, I will explain to you now, what has happened what you could not bear patients regarding Let me explain it to you. As for the boat, that I made a hole in and damaged further upstream, there was a certain leader who was taking away all the good boats and this boat belonged to to

00:06:43--> 00:07:20

poor people who were trying to earn sustenance through ferrying people to and from and now if it had nothing wrong with it, it was going to be taken. So I thought let me make a small hole, they will be able to fix it at least it won't go away completely. And later on they will understand that this was worth it. Because if there was no hole it would have been taken completely. That was the first one. Now masala is Salatu was Salam is listening very quietly saying yes, this was granted by Allah the knowledge was given by Allah subhanho wa Taala to someone else. And then the second thing, he says, As for that young men, that young man whom I killed, I was inspired by Allah subhanho wa Taala, that

00:07:20--> 00:08:02

this boy who had parents who are good, he had he been granted life to see his youth and beyond, he would be very, very disobedient to his parents, and he would be a means of being a burden upon his parents. So to protect the parents from that type of a child, I was inspired by Allah subhanho wa Taala. to eradicate him to eliminate him, please by all means, this does not mean that when we see youngsters who are unruly, we must go in eradicate them, no ways. This was this was al Qaeda, he was granted knowledge by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it is not to ask to do all this. May Allah grant us understanding. So he says, we make dua that Allah give those parents, someone else who will be

00:08:02--> 00:08:39

better. That was the second issue that you could not bear patience with. And as for the third item, they were two youngsters whose treasure happened to be underneath that particular wall. Their father died leaving behind for them a certain treasure, and the treasure was under the wall had the wall fallen, others would have seen the treasure and probably stolen it usurped it, but if the wall was straight, then time to come in the future when they grow up, they will then find their way to that particular treasure because the wall will be up and that is why I actually straighten the wall for free. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grounders understanding Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:08:39--> 00:09:18

said, we hope Musa alayhis salam could have had more patience. So we could have learned much more from the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all. Now from this we also learned that we need when we are in the company of Allah. Sometimes they might tell us things that we don't understand. But we need to realize that sometimes it's better for us it is for our own gratification. It is for our own good at times that they tell us certain things whether we understand it or not. Yes, we are allowed to question and in Islam, we are allowed to question absolutely anything if we don't understand it, we are taught as Muslims that we must understand absolutely everything. So it is not

00:09:18--> 00:09:44

wrong to ask but there is a method of asking, there is a time in place for asking, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who can seek knowledge, understand it, put it into practice and teach it to others as well. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala after having mentioned that story of al Qaeda, he speaks about those who who are losers, those whose deeds shall be a waste those who do a lot of deeds, but those deeds are a waste.

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

All hell no not be

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

enough surina Allah Allah should I inform you of whose deeds shall be wasted who will be those who will be having deeds that shall be absolutely wasted?

00:10:01--> 00:10:02

larina

00:10:04--> 00:10:07

dunya homeobox una

00:10:08--> 00:10:49

una persona, those who think they are doing a lot of good, but what they are doing is actually against what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught. Why is this verse there? Let's understand that the mufa sirion have explained, and the alhama have explained that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his mission was to teach us every drop of goodness. So mataranka hieron illa de la la la la Sharon in La heteronomy. There is no form of goodness that he forgot to teach us nothing. So if we think that there is goodness that we can come up with, there is an act of worship that we think we should engage in, I want to read five rocks out of solid

00:10:50--> 00:11:31

because I feel that it is a very holy day have a very blessed day rather than reading for I've got the energy let me add one more, that automatically becomes a waste, we will waste our time and energy and effort. We are insulting Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because he taught us goodness. And we feel no there was something he left he forgot to tell us that you know what you are allowed to add a fifth record if you want. So, this is something we need to think of all the acts of worship we engage in, we should try and ensure that we have been taught them by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, because if we were not taught them, what was the point of engaging in

00:11:31--> 00:11:43

them, we are basically saying indirectly, that you know what, he forgot to tell us this but this is part of being let me do it. So Allah says, Allah vino de la ville dunya

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

una

00:11:46--> 00:11:59

una Sana, those whose deeds are astray, and yet they think they are doing good deeds. Allah subhanho wa Taala keep a steadfast and for this reason at the end of the surah Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:12:01--> 00:12:09

Can I Oh Julie call l o. b e. mela mela Hello sorry, ha.

00:12:10--> 00:12:14

shriek be Reba to be

00:12:16--> 00:12:54

those who want to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala must ensure that all their deeds are in conformity to what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught and they must also ensure that they do not engage in schilke they do not associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala. May Allah protect us all Alhamdulillah we have the brains we have the intellect that Allah has granted us. We need to think anytime we want to engage in an act of worship. Do you know that if we have to draw up a list of those acts of worship, whereby the whole Muslim Ummah unanimously will tell us that there is nothing wrong with this, then that list will be so large that if we start engaging in those acts,

00:12:54--> 00:13:29

one after the other, we will not have time for those type of deeds where half the Ummah is debating with you whether it's permissible or not, why must we even go to those deeds, when there are so many deeds that are unanimously agreed upon? If I want to engage in celiac, no one's going to argue with me if I want to, for example, read my tahajjud No one's going to argue with me if I want to complete one Quran every three days, no one's going to argue with me. If I want to, for example, faster day leave a day, no one's going to argue with me. So there are so many acts of worship that we can engage in where the whole oma will agree with us that there is nothing wrong with these acts of

00:13:29--> 00:14:07

worship. Yet we find ourselves going into acts of worship which are very, very questionable, where the oma begins to debate, hey, this person is engaged in wrong and this is not substantiated in the Quran, not substantiated in the pseudonym of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And not taught to us by Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant has the respect of Allah, the respect of Allah and the respect of His Messenger, Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So that is in Surah to a lot of us leads on a regular basis. But do we realize that the message towards the end is telling us make sure that whatever we do, is taught by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam because he has

00:14:07--> 00:14:45

taught every point of goodness and we believe in it, he did not forget a thing. So if we feel we have come up with something different, that something new, indirectly we are saying he forgot to teach that to us and that is a very, very big insult to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Then in the next year, Allah subhanho wa Taala has named it sort of Maria because the story of Maria Malaya salat wa salam is repeated there. The story of the miraculous birth of Jesus Christ is repeated there. The fact that he is not the Son of God and so on is repeated there. And Allah commences with the story of zaccaria Allah is an A Salatu was Salam. And Allah begins to say that Zachary

00:14:45--> 00:14:57

alehissalaam did not lose hope. Regarding the male child that he didn't have he continued making until one day when he was very old, Allah subhanho wa Taala told him yes Zakaria.

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

By shimo Gabby hola amin is muya here. Oh Zakaria we are giving you good news of a son that shall come to you whose name will be

00:15:11--> 00:15:17

john the baptist May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding. Now he felt ashamed. You know sometimes

00:15:18--> 00:15:56

when a person has a child after 15 years of after 15 years gap and the person begins to feel that now I'm very old, my wife is very old. What answer Are we going to give the public Believe me there is no answer. If you are married Alhamdulillah if you are not married, yes there is there are answers that you need to give. But if you are married, no problem that is a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Sometimes a woman can give birth even when she is 50 by the will of Allah if Allah wills even beyond that, that is the Quran power of Allah azza wa jal, Zakaria salat wa salam, he felt it in his heart and he told Allah subhanho wa Taala he Gianni give me a sign, give me a sign Give me

00:15:56--> 00:16:06

something some form of item that I can achieve comfort and solace through. And Allah says, I atoka Allah token Neiman as

00:16:09--> 00:16:14

your sign is that for three nights don't speak to anyone three days and three nights.

00:16:15--> 00:16:55

Okay, just bear this in mind what we said the sign of Zakaria was that he shouldn't speak. Let's go to the story of Maria Malaya salatu wa sallam, she found herself pregnant. She also asked that Yama How is this possible? And Allah says that this is through the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala he wants Jesus to be a saint for entire humanity for all mankind. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance to respect that Nabhi of Allah Jesus Christ may peace be upon him. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then makes mention of what he told Miriam. Imagine it was difficult very difficult. In fact, she said yeah, Allah eternia me to Kabbalah Haha, I just wish I was dead before this point. So

00:16:55--> 00:17:34

many women in pregnancy at the final stages they wish that they would did not do that to us. And may Allah safeguard our women and make life easy for them make giving birth easy for them. Insha Allah, Allah it is a very big jihad. Very, very big Jihad to give birth. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us there's a word you Allah Duda Allah Luda for me mo Catherine de como una mejor malkia get married to those women who are loving and childbearing because I would like to be through you that Nabhi who has the most followers, may Allah grant us the acceptance to have as many kids as possible but quality children not that we have 10 children and nine out nine of them are astray

00:17:34--> 00:17:45

because we didn't have time to look after them. No, we must inshallah look after our children and give them an upbringing that inshallah even the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be proud of on the day of the AMA.

00:17:46--> 00:18:17

So Allah subhanho wa Taala. We asked him to make it easy for the women folk, as I always mentioned in many of my lectures, do you know what men are guilty of? They don't realize that the stretch marks on the bellies of the women. Those are actually signs of contributing to the home of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, voila, he there are signs of jihad, they are signs of a huge sacrifice. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us the ability to understand that those marks are actually marks that may take the women to gender, Allah take them to gender inshallah.

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

So Maria Maria salatu wa sallam was also told

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

for him.

00:18:29--> 00:18:30

In Nina,

00:18:38--> 00:19:16

if a person comes to you, anyone comes to you, obviously they will question when they come to you tell them I am fasting, not the fasting in terms of abstaining from food, but I'm abstaining from speech. I won't talk to anyone and point at the child. So Allah says her sign was also silence. She had to remain quiet. What does this mean? We saw both times Allah is teaching us in the surah. silence is golden sometimes silence can solve our problem. What type of silence? intellectual silence, not foolish silence. When someone says How are you doing? What is your name and you say we were told to be quiet. Now that is very, very foolish. That is very, very foolish silence. But when

00:19:16--> 00:19:42

someone wants to cause a problem with you, they are testing you trying you they've uttered a statement of of a difficulty they want to really befall you with something evil, you'd rather be quiet and inshallah Time will heal those wounds. Time heals most wounds, you should remember that. So be quiet and into intellectual silence in sha Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells Madame la ha Salatu was salam to remain silent and to point at the child when she pointed at the child

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

in me,

00:19:45--> 00:19:51

Danielle kita Baba Jelani nebia Johnny Mubarak and

00:19:54--> 00:19:57

we're also on Eb sauna. He was at Madame

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

Isa

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

His Salatu was Salam Jesus May peace be upon him, spoke from the cradle I am the worship of Allah. Allah very soon shall give me the book and Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him the book and Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of what else he said from the cradle. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all the acceptance to understand the miracles of all these messengers of Allah horrible is that even

00:20:23--> 00:20:57

after that Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of some of the other prophets in the same surah and then he makes mention of those people who left their Salah, who followed the messengers after a certain time after the messengers they came, they forgot their Salah, meaning their form of worship, that they were taught by the messengers, and they began to follow their desires. So Allah says, all of them shall be punished, but he makes an exception. And I'm sure we all know what is the exception Allah says, For Filofax, D him Han Alba masala dabba dabba dabang chahatein.

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

In de

00:21:03--> 00:21:45

la Sol de la Kabbalah, Allah says, Those who came after the messengers and they left their deeds and acts of worship and they began to follow their desires, they shall all be cast into a punishment, except those who repent May Allah make us from amongst those who repent in lamentable Amana, those who believe what I mean, those who do good deeds thereafter, Allah says definitely those shall intergender May Allah subhanho wa Taala take us into Jenna. In fact, in tonight's verses more than one place, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the Toba in another place. Allah says we're in need of Lima Amano Amina Sani

00:21:47--> 00:22:19

I'd like everyone to know that I am most forgiving to the person who seeks forgiveness and who believes and who does good deeds. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the mercy of his at all times. I mean, then Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of jahannam and the fact that every one of us is going to cross over a certain bridge over Johanna. It is the setup of Sarah, the bridge that will be crossing over Johanna Allah says will

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

come in

00:22:29--> 00:22:31

Gina Vina taco

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

Amina.

00:22:36--> 00:23:13

They will be a bridge as thin as a hair. According to one of the narrations of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, everyone will have to cross it those who are doing good deeds in the dunya will cross it like a flash of lightning. And those who are evil will be slower and slower, so much so that those who will be tight roping on it, and they will have been evil not engaged in Toba, they will fall into Johanna. Imagine if I were to tell you that there is a bridge or a rope over the ocean. a rope. This is hair like the one we talking about his hair like a rope is a bit thick. Even if we have 10 roads over the ocean and you've got to cross the ocean. I'm sure jahannam is bigger

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

than this Atlantic Ocean we see here.

00:23:16--> 00:23:59

We would be very scared, very, very scared. So this Allah is mentioning to warn us to say look, turn before it is too late. Allah says when a suku Mooji Mina, Elijah, Nana, Linda, the criminals shall be driven to Johanna but those who believe Allah says noona Jean Latina Taka we will save them. Those who were conscious of our commands. May Allah subhanho wa Taala cure us and may He make us conscious of his commands at the end of the surah Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us how serious the statement is the statement made by those who say that God has a son. Allah says How dare they say that I have a son? Do they know what that implies? Allah says Taka do sama

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

amin who

00:24:01--> 00:24:03

Shaku was

00:24:05--> 00:24:07

the owner of many,

00:24:09--> 00:24:10

many

00:24:12--> 00:24:58

The sky is about to tear the earth is about to come to pieces and to rupture and to explode and the mountains are about to drop because they know how serious the statement is that Allah has a son now we will be lamella safeguard us. Imagine that other creatures of Allah also know and they feel it when someone says God has a son. Do we know what that implies? Yes, Jesus May peace be upon him was a prophet. He was born miraculously without a father. And we have explained in the past that Adam alayhis salam, no father, no mother Hawa and Eve. Born through men with no involvement of a female by the miracle of Allah, Jesus May peace be upon him born through female without the involvement of

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

a male by the miracle of Allah.

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

All of us here are burned through male and female May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all guidance and may He guide those who are uttering these words inshallah towards the good, the goodness and the truth. I mean, then Allah subhanho wa Taala commences a very interesting Surah Surah ha ha ha ha It is said one of the names of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because why do they say it's a name of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam because immediately after Allah says, Paul, he addresses the Prophet

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

Allah

00:25:35--> 00:26:13

we did not reveal this foreign to you in order for it to be a point of distress for you. You know, the kuffaar they make statements that sometimes we are also guilty of having off having made some people come Muslims and they say, you know, Islam is very hard too many rules, too many regulations, too many rules and regulations. Well, the kuffaar at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the same thing. Why do you want to follow this Quran it comes to you with rules and regulations live how you want. Now here in La Jolla tuna dunya Namu tuna here. This is the life of this of this dunya We will live we were born and we will die at one stage enjoy. Life comes once

00:26:13--> 00:26:48

Haven't we heard that statement? So enjoy. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says no Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this Quran was not revealed so that it can be a point of distress for you. So that it can be rules and regulations for you. You know, I went to a school and I'm sure we all know that those who go to schools that have more rules and more regulations that school is a better school than the one that has very few rules and regulations. But does that mean now we should not go to those schools that have rules and regulations? no common sense. The private schools at times they have lots and lots of rules, they will tell you the regarding the garters, you've got to wear on

00:26:48--> 00:27:22

your socks, Allahu Akbar. If you don't have that elastic band on your socks, they'll send you home. It's affect why that doesn't mean it's a bad school and too many rules. That is a school they want discipline. And this is what Islam wants from us discipline. We must be people each one of us must be potential leaders, potential leaders, no drinking no drugs, no gambling no Xena and so on. We must be sober people who are intelligent who have who have a focus in life and we continue inshallah, in a manner that each one of us is a potential leader. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all leaders.

00:27:23--> 00:28:03

So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells that to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after a few verses. Allah makes mention of the story of Musa a salatu wa salam, believe me there are so many jewels, Allah subhanho wa Taala says well attacca Hadi Formosa did the story come to you of masala Salatu was Salam. And you know one of the miracles of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala did not use the word Musa at the beginning. He says, Did the story come to you of Musa alayhis salam so the word Musa is used at the end? Why? Because the kuffaar they probably thought that their name was going to be there. You know there is a verse in the Quran where Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of the

00:28:03--> 00:28:33

hypocrites. And Allah says that the hypocrites are worried that any time Allah can expose them. So when the West came down, did the story come to you about the kuffar each one was thinking that a might my name might be there, then what will happen I will be exposed and Allah says moves, then there was a sigh of relief that no this is a story of the previous prophets. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has used words like this in order to draw the attention of the co founder of Makkah, like for example, when we say bah ha, or early for

00:28:36--> 00:28:57

me the meaning of these words, Allah knows best, Allah knows best. And who full Macaca they are separated letters. Do you know that every single surah that has separated letters was revealed in Makkah, besides the first two Al Baqarah and Allah Imran why revealed in Makkah, because in Makkah, they used to put their ears in,

00:28:58--> 00:29:12

meaning their fingers in their ears. They used to put their fingers in their ears. They didn't want to listen to the verses. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verses that shocked them. They never ever heard this. They were so eloquent, but they didn't ever hear. And if

00:29:14--> 00:29:52

me, once they heard that they wanted to know Hey, what's happening, and as they left their fingers, the next verse came in Makkah, the verses revealed were very short and sharp, very short and sharp. So as they went to put their fingers back into their ears, the verse had already finished. So they were now contemplating what was said. And as they release their fingers, there was another verse that hit them, as they put their fingers back, the verse was complete and so on. These are the secrets of the verses of Macedon mukaiyama. Short and sharp in Al Madina, munawwara verses one hour long because the meaning we're now listening to it. So we must understand that Allah subhanho wa

00:29:52--> 00:30:00

Taala uses certain methods to draw the attention of the kuffaar It's a miracle of Allah. This is why we say this peran nobody can

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

compete with it. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about Musa alayhis salatu wa salam. I want to draw one example just one I told you there are many but let's draw one. Do you know when Allah subhanho wa Taala tells Musa alayhis salatu wa salam?

00:30:13--> 00:30:53

He says, One Martine cabbie amin aka Moosa, what is it in your right handle Moosa? Do you think Allah did not know? Allah subhanho wa Taala knew exactly better than Musa alayhis salam what was in his hand. But this was an opportunity for musala in salatu salam to communicate with his rub. Now the proper answer if someone told you what is in your right hand and say there is a paper in my right hand, that's it. But musala is Salatu was Salam decided, you know what, this is a chance I might not get it in the near future again, let me seize it and speak as much as I want to Allah Azza wa Jalla wa who should be here I live on Amelia.

00:30:56--> 00:31:13

Allah subhanho wa Taala It is my stick. Yes, I have sometimes I lean on et Allah. Allah didn't ask him what you do with it. He says sometimes I lean on et Allah azza wa jal, and sometimes I use it for my flock. I use it to direct the flock to Allah. And he didn't stop there.

00:31:14--> 00:31:52

And sometimes I use it for other things as well. Yeah, Allah Allahu Akbar. Look at how beautiful it is. He is speaking to his creator, and he's continuing uttering and uttering What do we learn from that? The closest we are to our Creator is Salah in sujood. But with us it's the other way around. We want to Dart up again as though they are springs on our foreheads from spring Master, may Allah Subhana Allah protect us. So as we go down, if we bound it comes back up again. Allahu Akbar, yet we are supposed to be learning from musala salatu wa sallam, this is the opportunity that you get to be close to Allah to communicate with him. Why do you want to come up so suddenly take your time and

00:31:52--> 00:32:03

this is why we always tell the men and the women folk that don't leave your car running and say you know what, let me quickly read my salah and come switch it off. Take the battery out if you want it might be your last Salah.

00:32:04--> 00:32:40

When you come for Salah it must be complete concentration. Don't be bothered about time those people who complain about time they haven't understood the lesson here. The same applies to the womenfolk. Don't leave your stove, turn it on and say let me quickly read my salah and come and check on it. Switch it off, put the pot aside, read your Salah, then come and do your cooking. We can't give preference to a pot of food over Allah subhanho wa Taala nor can we give preference to a motor vehicle over Allah subhanho wa Taala here is musala salatu wa sallam. What a beautiful example. He spoke so much because he knew it's an opportunity we do when it comes to Salah. Let's take our time

00:32:40--> 00:32:45

in sha Allah, may Allah make us really achieve the coolness of our eyes inshallah.

00:32:46--> 00:33:14

Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says regarding the coolness of his eyes in Salah, may Allah do that for us as well. So that is just an example that we have drawn from the story of Musa alayhis salatu salam, another very potent example that we draw here tonight, Allah subhanho wa Taala, st Musa and Harun to figure out let's take a look at who was who they the best of the time was Musa and Hello, Allah He masala and the worst of the time was around.

00:33:15--> 00:33:54

Allah sent the best of the time to the worst of the time. And Allah told them, go and guide him go and give him some guidance go and talk to him. But how should you talk to him? Listen, the best was sent to talk to the worst fear around in our communities. Is there anyone that we can say this is the fear out of my community? No, no one at all. No one says I am Allah. No one Not at all. Not even from amongst the non Muslims. At the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam It is reported that he said Abu Jamal was like a fear out of his time may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding but with fear around himself, Allah tells Musa and Harun Saku La la

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

la

00:33:58--> 00:33:58

can

00:34:00--> 00:34:11

go and speak to him with soft speech with polite speech with beautiful speech so that maybe there is a chance that he can remember or fear

00:34:12--> 00:34:49

imagine the best was sent to the west and was told go and speak very nicely. Now with us when we want to correct and rectify something, what do we do? Firstly, we are not the best because we are not prophets. We are not Moses and Harun Musa and Harun Allah Salam. We are nowhere near we have our own weaknesses. And then the one we are sent to is not the worst so we should be speaking even in a better manner Allahu Akbar, but yet we get to the children Hey, why are you not leading your Salah pick up a stick and go did Allah tell masala salat wa salam because he can go and hit this man because he's saying Hon, c'mon Allah, I am your love. I am your God. No, Allah says go and speak to

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

him softly quietly. So from this we learn that when we go to tell others what is right and wrong, we must be careful how we word our statements and don't expect results overnight.

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

speak very, very politely make the people feel like they are Muslims make them feel wanted. Don't make them feel away from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala really grant us all lessons from this and Allah subhanho wa Taala after that makes mention of those who turn away from the signs of Allah in this particular dunya Allah says, woman

00:35:22--> 00:35:26

in Allahumma in Chateau banca when a

00:35:29--> 00:35:37

00:35:41--> 00:36:20

There will be certain people who will be resurrected blind on the day of piano blind and they will say yellow Why are we resurrected blind yet we could see in the dunya and Allah subhanho wa Taala will say no, when our signs came to you, our reminders came to you You turned a blind eye and you did not listen to them. So today because you forgot us in the dunya we will forget you Now you won't be able to see May Allah subhanahu wa taala not do that to us on the day of the AMA, may he make us from amongst those who can turn and repent every single day. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala in the next era which is sudo to ambia. Allah makes mentioned Subhana Allah to Allah of the fact that the

00:36:20--> 00:37:03

angels do not get tired, they worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and they don't get tired, they obey the commands you serve. Behold Allah, Allah. Allah I have to warn the person praise Allah subhanho wa Taala night and day, day and night, and they never ever pause for a break. They don't get tired, tired at all. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us and this was one of the last verses we read tonight about the day of the AMA and the fact that he will put up a scale literally a scale that has good and bad a scale that has on one side the good deeds and on the other side the bad deeds Allah subhanho wa Taala says why nobody will know as Enoch is Polly yummy leukemia Mati fella toda la
