00:00:13--> 00:00:55

A salaam aleikum, wa Rahmatullahi wa barakato, my beloved brothers and sisters, at the time of the Prophet Musa alayhis Salatu was salam, according to verse number 60, of Surah Al Baqarah. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that his people asked him for water. Obviously they wanted to drink water, there was no water around. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, that mentioned is made of the fact that they needed the water and they were hopeless, besides the fact that they asked Musa alayhis salam to ask Allah for water. Now, they had a habit where they would ask the Prophet and the Prophet at the time being musala his son, and they would ask the Prophet and the Prophet would then make dua to

00:00:55--> 00:01:46

Allah call out to Allah. Imagine there's no water at all. And here is the Prophet. What is this? This car Moosa liko. Me for Khulna, when Musa alayhis salam asked for water for his people from us. We told him what did we tell him? Allah automatically gave him almost instantly the water in a specific way for call numbering biocycle hotjar. First number 60, Allah says, We told him to strike with his stick of the rock. So he struck it and suddenly, these 12 Springs gushed out of the rock, something considered in possible was actually possible Subhan Allah and I'm glad I mean, you know, I have witnessed the drilling of bore holes, and at times they hit rock, and they drill through the

00:01:46--> 00:02:05

rock and they suddenly strike water and it splashes up and I'm thinking Subhan Allah, how Allah allowed that stick of Musa alayhis salam to strike the rock in a way that the water came gushing forth from the rock a by the power of Allah. So Allah granted them healing.

00:02:07--> 00:02:46

They had the water they drank from it, water is very healthy, obviously you and I know that many of us have the intake of water is too little yet it is there we wastewater sometimes which is terrible. So if you want to achieve the goodness, you need to conserve, and at the same time, utilize in the best possible way, make use of it appreciated and thank Allah for it, and don't become hopeless, if Allah could cause the rock to split and water to gush forth or look into anything. So panel have faith conviction. Obviously people might say, Well, that was Musa alayhis salam, indeed but that is Allah.

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

That is Allah.

00:02:50--> 00:03:30

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We told them kulu worship or Marie's Pilla, eat and drink from the favors of Allah. Do you know there is another verse where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We provided them with food from heaven, we gave them the men and the silver, we gave them water here Allah is saying, We gave them everything, what didn't Allah give us? I sit and I look at some of the fruits and vegetables that we have the bread and when you enter the supermarket, we exchange a little bit of money for some beautiful food and even if it's a tin of baked beans, imagine where it was, where it was sown, where it grew, where it the crop was harvested, how many people worked on it, and where

00:03:30--> 00:04:01

it was transported, where it was sold, and who sold it thereafter how it was packed. Where how it found its way onto the shelf that's on one hand, the other hand with you how you worked and how you earn and what you did and all of that and then you marry the two and you met at the point where you bought this kind of baked beans, then you opened it and if you take a look at every single thing, there is a can opener there is the can there is your utensil there is a stove, there is so much more. These are favours of Allah when you think about them. There is a lot of healing,

00:04:03--> 00:04:47

a lot of healing, you start looking at the blessings that Allah has actually blessed you with Subhan Allah Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness and Allah describes the Quran in Surah Al Baqarah verse number 97 and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, who then will bush rally meaning in the Quran? There is guidance and glad tidings for those who believe. If you believe you have guidance, glad tidings look at the story of Musa alayhis salam, if you're a believer, that story of Moses will enlighten you. It will make you so happy. It will show you after so many struggles, how they came out of it. It will actually make you realize that for every Pharaoh there is a Moses, it

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

will make you realize that for every unjust person justice will be served. It makes you realize that every one and everything has a prescribed time after which Allah will ensure that goodness

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

prevails. Allah gives you respect in order to correct your ways, your habits, whatever else it may be. But that's the gift of Allah. So remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala as he says, In verse number 103 of Surah Al Baqarah. He speaks about the disbelievers analysis if they believed, and they did good deeds, if they believed and develop their consciousness with Allah, they develop their taqwa, they then did good deeds, basically, Allah says they would have achieved a lot of reward from Allah walo unknown armano attacco lamassu, but two min en de la Hey lo can we Alamo, if only but they knew that. If they believe and did good deeds, then there is a great reward from Allah that

00:05:47--> 00:06:14

they would expect and they should expect and they would receive. So for all of us, there is a lot of hope in this because we're believers, and we're doing good deeds. Allah says, You know what, by the will of Allah, you will achieve a lot of goodness that's going to come in your direction. Now, there is mentioned in verse number 109, of jealousy, the jealousy of some of the disbelievers where Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:06:15--> 00:07:02

if they would, if they could, they would have turned you away from your faith out of jealousy, that you are worshiping your maker alone, no sticks and stones, no deities, no people, no strays, no nothing besides the one who made you, when they know that sometimes the people because of materialistic reasons, or whatever other reasons there may be, they actually turn away. They want you to turn away out of jealousy. So Allah says hazard, the mean in the unforeseen. They knew that what the truth was, but after that, their jealousy made them try to drive you away from your faith. Allah says, Don't be driven away from your faith. Allah speaks about something very interesting. At

00:07:02--> 00:07:14

the end of that verse, he says, fafo was father had died at your local b&b, forgive and embrace, forgive and embrace until Allah comes with his instruction.

00:07:16--> 00:07:23

Because Allah is indeed all able and capable. So the point I want to highlight here is forgiving and embracing.

00:07:25--> 00:08:18

A lot of the times, we are hopeless, and we actually haven't healed simply because we haven't forgiven, we haven't let go. So the burden is becoming bigger and bigger. So Allah is telling you for was foul, you know what, just excuse them. Just ignore it. Just forgive them. And embrace, keep the peace. And obviously, this depends on what type of crime is committed against you. To forgive is something you're being encouraged to do. But to forget, is not simple. And it's not an Islamic teaching to forgive and forget, especially when the crime is terrible, because a lot of you forgive but remember it so that you're not bitten from the same point twice. Amazing. Remember this. So my

00:08:18--> 00:08:59

brothers and sisters, Allah is telling you to forgive and let go embrace. If you can do that, you will achieve a lot of goodness, many people don't forgive, they say, how will I forgive? How can I forgive, they've done a lot of bad, just let go of it from your heart, you don't have to communicate it to them. They don't need to know you've forgiven them, because they probably haven't even asked you for forgiveness in many cases. But you can just let go of it from your heart. And you can say, Oh Allah, I make you bear witness that I've forgiven this person, I don't want to have much to do with them. I don't really want to associate with them, because I don't wish to be bitten twice. So I

00:08:59--> 00:09:47

may not be able to embrace them, but I will at least forgive. That's a very powerful message. My brothers and sisters, try it. No matter what they've done to you try to forgive. Even if you cannot embrace, at least you've done one thing. And if you have given an embraced, always remember, if it was something really bad that happened to you that it could happen again. It will take time for them to prove themselves to you that this will not happen again. And over time, you may end up forgetting because of how good the times have become. But initially It's not like that. Initially you won't forget it's going to take a long time to heal the scars of what happened. But you forgiven. People

00:09:47--> 00:10:00

ask sometimes can I forgive but not forget and I said obviously you're a human How can you just forget, especially when it's something bad, but forgive them? So May Allah grant us that comfort and May Allah subhanho wa Taala open for

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

The goodness and let's try and remember that every goodness that we have is from Allah. keep on asking him for the goodness. And when you have a good heart, Allah will indeed recompense you for that good heart. That doesn't mean you should allow people to trample all over you. But it does mean you can forgive and you can take heed. May Allah bless us all. akuto Kohli hava sallallahu wasallam albaraka Allah novena Muhammad wa Nunez xeno Minato Nima, who worship
