And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless us all. And our offspring those to come up to the last of time. May

00:00:47 --> 00:01:23

Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us steadfast on the right path, beloved brothers and sisters, as we had promised, this evening we will be speaking about a very, very important messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If we turn the pages of the Quran, we will find that the bulk of the verses in the Quran that discuss prophets and the messengers that were sent, discuss the Prophet Moses May peace be upon him Musa alayhis salatu wa salam, he is mentioned in 124 places in the Quran.

00:01:24 --> 00:01:52

And Allah subhanho wa Taala has mentioned his story in so much detail. And one of the sutras where there is great detail is known as surah Toluca sauce, Al cosas, meaning the stories, what stories and why is it plural, it's important for us to know that he is the only messenger discussed in the Quran in so many different stages of his life, starting from the very beginning,

00:01:53 --> 00:02:00

when he was born, and later on as he grew up, and thereafter,

00:02:01 --> 00:02:17

when he left this, the area that he had grown up in for a certain reason, inshallah, we will come to that this evening. And he went away and what happened in Medina when he went to Midian. and thereafter when he came back,

00:02:18 --> 00:02:27

and how he was sent to Freetown and the message to the Pharaoh of Iran, in the Arabic language we save around in English, we say Pharaoh,

00:02:29 --> 00:03:12

and thereafter the response and so on. And after they were successful and victorious over the Pharaoh, what happened between him and his own people been to Israel. So all this is mentioned and these are the different stages that Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about. So we will inshallah concentrate on certain causes. And we will also take verses from other places in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the tyrants of the time, the one who used to say, an Arab mukamal Allah, I am your God, I am the highest deity that you could ever have. This was the statement of the Pharaoh. He used to say I am the highest deity that you have, while call of Iran.

00:03:14 --> 00:03:55

Allah oma Lim to Lancome in Isla in ye invoiceberry. Pharaoh told all his chiefs, that oh my chiefs, I don't know of any god for you people besides me stuff. Look at how he was he knew that he's a human being. He knew he had the same needs of nature that everyone else had, and he knew that he was also prone to sickness and so on. But at the same time, he was too haughty very, very high. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, por si, mi, T,

00:03:56 --> 00:04:00

tune into ob

00:04:01 --> 00:04:02

nettuno. Li,

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


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


00:04:08 --> 00:04:23

Allahu Akbar, Allah says, pa see meme. This is a way of commencing a surah. These tours that have these separated letters were all revealed in Mecca. Besides the first two.

00:04:24 --> 00:05:00

All of them were reviewed in muckety muck karma because there they were the kuffaar of Quraysh, who were extremely eloquent, and they thought that their language skills were so high that they nobody could come up with something better than theirs. So Allah subhanho wa Taala decided to send verses that nobody knows the meaning of but he drew their attention Subhana Allah and they wanted to know it. And this is why we are taught is that para la de la. Only Allah knows exactly what the meaning of those separated letters are. They are known as homophone mocha.

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

bar which means separated letters.

00:05:04 --> 00:05:08

So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about this and he starts the surah in this way.

00:05:09 --> 00:05:54

So this surah was revealed in Makkah, Tomoko Rama, and Allah subhanho wa Taala is making mention of this in so much detail. He says, These are the verses of the book, very clear, cut, clear, cut the book and clear cut the verses, then Allah says, we are going to recite unto you, we are going to relate unto you, O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the story of Moses and Pharaoh with truth, because there might be other versions that may come later on. There were people of the book who brought stories of Moses, may peace be upon him and Pharaoh, but they had all different versions, whereas the Quran came before Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard these stories from anyone

00:05:54 --> 00:06:38

else. The Quran had already come with these verses. And the law says that is the accurate version of the story between Moses and Pharaoh. It is related in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah grant us a lesson. One might ask why the great detail, why is it that there is so much detail because Allah subhanho wa Taala knows that we will all need to learn lessons from the story and derive lessons and Karen ties them from the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam all the way to this day and right up to the end of time, they will always be a force that is a devilish force that is a tyrant that is very high and haughty that may be in authority, and on the other hand, you will have a Moses

00:06:38 --> 00:06:39

and this is why

00:06:41 --> 00:06:44

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Every nation

00:06:46 --> 00:07:00

every people have had a Moses Subhan Allah. Allah has sent a Moosa to all the people there was always one who was calling them towards goodness. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, In my case, it is Abuja.

00:07:02 --> 00:07:44

Which means Abu Jamal was the one who was the Freetown and I was the one who was the Moses. So Panama. Look at how the explanation is Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving us both forces, the force that calls towards goodness, and the force that fights anybody who calls towards goodness, may we ask ourselves the question, which category? Do we fully? Do we call people towards goodness? Or do we fight those who call us towards goodness? First question from Panama. So we learned this lesson from the surah which side that we on? Let us become absolutely conscious of this at all times? when someone calls us towards goodness, do we get angry and upset? If that is the case? Where do we

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


00:07:46 --> 00:07:59

And when we see evil, do we do we at least feel in our hearts that this is wrong? Or do we also cheer it along and become part of it? So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in every round,

00:08:00 --> 00:08:03

oni wa Jalla Allah she,

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


00:08:06 --> 00:08:45

he was very haughty on Earth, he thought himself to be something very high and very great. He thought that he was the big boss, he was the one who decided, in fact, he said, I am the God, you worship me. And that's it. So Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah has Shia on the land. He made the people on the land, different groups, he classified them. So he was right at the top, then he had his chiefs. They all worship Him. Those chiefs have his and he allowed them to get close. And they helped him sometimes in decision making, and so on. He had meetings with them at times, and he allowed them to ask him questions. Now, if he was a god, why would he need to consult?

00:08:46 --> 00:09:18

Why would he need to consult. So it goes to prove that he knew for a fact that he's not at the top, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, thereafter, he had other categories, there were those who worshipped Him whom he enslaved. So they were his slaves, and worshippers. stavroula they considered him a god and a slave for him. And then there were those who served him who were professional in a certain way where he needed them, such as the magician's who came later on, who were worried about what they would earn, if they could benefit him in one way or another.

00:09:20 --> 00:09:35

It is reported and this is something that is common sense. Some of the allameh have spoken about the common sense behind this statement, that fear around says He's the God being utterly unacceptable, even within within his himself.

00:09:36 --> 00:09:42

If we study it, later on, when he needed to face Musa alayhis salam.

00:09:43 --> 00:09:59

He wanted to bring magic if he was the God couldn't bring it himself. But he had to call on magicians. So it goes to show he's so silly. On one hand, he's telling the same magicians I'm your God, and the other hand is saying, hang on. We need to face the men bring up whatever you people have. Why would you do that?

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

So look at how high the man is but his brain is knocked. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. Sometimes when we think we know too much in reality, our brain becomes covered. And then we start sounding like a fool May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. We always need to draw lesson and inspiration from Revelation because Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals ye ye means revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no ways that the Quran can be wrong, not even a droplet. Now Allah Subhana Allah, Allah grant us lesson. So Allah says he divided his people, and then he had those who were slaves who did not worship him, but they were slaves. And they knew that this one is not our

00:10:38 --> 00:10:52

God. They were part of a new era in the children of yaku, the children of Jacob and we had these Egyptians who were on this side, fear outside, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all really.

00:10:53 --> 00:11:03

Then we have those who were outright enemies, anyone who defied around in any way, even prior to their birth, he got rid of them.

00:11:05 --> 00:11:08

Which means if he felt there is a defiance against me,

00:11:10 --> 00:11:16

within the fetus before it is actually given birth to, he made sure as soon as it came, it was destroyed.

00:11:19 --> 00:11:48

This policy up to this day it lasts and Allah subhanho wa Taala is revealing these verses to us to learn a lesson. Remember, I might not be able to current ties, absolutely every wish. But you can do that. Within your mind, within your heart. You know how it will fit into our condition? May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us and open our minds and hearts. Remember if you read the story again, and again and again, Allah subhanho wa Taala will open your understanding.

00:11:49 --> 00:11:53

It's important. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, you will not be home.

00:11:54 --> 00:11:56

Why is he nice?

00:11:57 --> 00:12:14

In who can Amina remove CD in some of them he considered them slaves, the weaker ones he took them as slaves and he used to slaughter their boys, a little boy was born, cut and thrown out. And he used to allow the little girls to live.

00:12:17 --> 00:12:21

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, what do we do and

00:12:23 --> 00:12:24

Venus to

00:12:31 --> 00:13:15

me, we want to give our favor to those who have been downtrodden on Earth, those who are the weak on Earth, those who are downtrodden, we want to bestow our favor upon them and make them the leaders and we want to make them the heirs of whatever is on the earth. So Allah subhanho wa Taala if we look at that time, there were two forces One was that which claimed to be God, and the other was the downtrodden. When we saw in the children of Israel, meaning the children of Yaqoob, the prophet Jacob May peace be upon him, he was called Israel. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says that we wanted to give our favor to these who are downtrodden and make them him and lead us bring them up and let

00:13:15 --> 00:13:43

them inherit whatever came from this particular side. And even more. Now the lesson for all of us, those who think they are haughty their days are numbered, their days are numbered, they cannot continue in that operation forever. Allah subhanho wa Taala will make it stop. And one day they will be those whom they considered low will be above them. This is the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is why we as Muslims are taught to be good to one another. You never know when the tables can tell.

00:13:45 --> 00:13:47

Really. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:13:48 --> 00:13:58

Why no makina Allah whom fill around the and we want to establish them on earth who those who are downtrodden for so many years, we want to establish them on earth when we

00:14:04 --> 00:14:04


00:14:07 --> 00:14:17

And we want to show you around and Harmon and the others the cronies that he had with him that they would actually lose what they feared most. They would lose it.

00:14:19 --> 00:14:38

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, When at that particular stage, around had seen a dream according to one of the narrations. And in his dream, he had seen a light that had come and it destroyed all the homes besides the homes of the children of Israel in the children of the Prophet Jacob, Israel, we will call them Israel.

00:14:40 --> 00:14:53

And it bothered him. So he sought its interpretation. He gathered some people and the people who were fortune tellers and magicians and what have you in those whom he won? And he asked them what is the meaning of my dream, but moments ago you were saying you are God.

00:14:55 --> 00:14:59

That means you now know that you even need an interpretation. So they

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

Hold him This means that there is going to be someone who's going to come a boy

00:15:05 --> 00:15:43

who will be coming up one boy, one men from Him, who will take away absolutely everything that you have. And he will uproot you totally and throw you onto the side and you will be destroyed at his hands. Totally. Now he was worried. He said, What do you mean? I will slaughter all the boys from today onwards. So he issued an instruction, anyone who finds any woman have been to Israel expecting you just make sure that she is under surveillance. And once she delivers, we take the child and next thing throw into the furnace or do whatever expose execute whatever they had to do, they did.

00:15:44 --> 00:15:57

And it is reported this happened every alternate year because this is how he was informed. Now one might ask, there was Harun alayhis salam, he was slightly older than Musa alayhis salam according to some narrations. He was born

00:15:58 --> 00:16:10

either at the time prior to these children being slaughtered or during the year, every other year when they were not slaughtering when they were not executing little babies.

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

So he was born, but at that time, the mother of Musa alayhis salam was expecting him she conceived, no one knew.

00:16:20 --> 00:16:59

And as she got worried, Allah subhanho wa Taala inspired her with revelation. Look, Allah subhanho wa Taala will always send a reminder to attire somehow, even if it's one man, but a reminder to a tyrant. And even we are talking here on a small scale. If there's oppression within the home, they will always be a reminder, oppression within the community. They will be reminders, oppression within a country oppression on an international scale, they will always be reminders from Allah subhanho wa Taala, clean cut, clear cut. And if the arrogance makes us not come back down to the ground, we've had it we will only last a little bit. And thereafter there is destruction May Allah

00:16:59 --> 00:17:37

safeguard us. And the reason I say this is because every one of us needs to ask ourselves the question, Which side do we fall on at every moment in our lives, some people are around in their own homes, the way they treat their wives the way they want. I don't know if we can call the women around us. But at the same time, sometimes there are people in the homes who terrorize their own family members. The family members are frightened of them a child sometimes the parents are scared of the child why we need to understand the rights of our parents, our mothers especially, and we need to know that we will serve them because this is how Allah subhanho wa Taala had asked us this

00:17:37 --> 00:17:42

is what he asked us and this is how inshallah we will be earning the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:44 --> 00:17:53

So remember, solve your problems and your matters. Sometimes it applies in the workplace, where there's a certain person who's around terrorizing everybody else, everyone proper Pharaoh,

00:17:54 --> 00:18:31

that won't last long. Well, it won't come with goodness, they will taste the Wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala either in their health, in their wealth, or in their family members or something to do with them. Sometimes we have people, and we've seen huge people, people who are in great authority on the globe, and suddenly one newspaper article and they are destroyed, they go to resign and come back and out and everything is finished. And that possibly is because they've oppressed someone somewhere down the line. And they didn't repent from it possibility. So we ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect us from oppressing others and from being oppressed as well. And may He not punish us.

00:18:32 --> 00:18:55

So this fear around as we know, he began to do this action and news to allow the girls to live the little boys used to be killed. And now the mother as she was fearing Allah subhanho wa Taala says, she succeeded she managed to cover until birth and she gave birth now worried because the child would start crying the people around might hear and so on. Allah says Well, our hyena

00:18:57 --> 00:18:59


00:19:08 --> 00:19:12

wa hafi Zani in

00:19:15 --> 00:19:16


00:19:17 --> 00:19:31

you know Mina knows Annie. Allah says We inspired the mother of Musa alayhis salam. Now this inspiration is not revelation as in the same that came to the prophets, but it is a strong inspiration.

00:19:32 --> 00:19:40

When a person knows almost certainly they have that yaqeen and they are inspired, in this case inspired by Allah subhanho wa Taala with certainty.

00:19:41 --> 00:19:43

So what was the inspiration?

00:19:44 --> 00:19:59

breastfeed the child. Continue breastfeeding the child when you fear for the child either because of whatever reason, creates that fear. Maybe the child might cry or you're fearing someone might come and take the child and because it is a family of banana in what

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

What happened is, they would immediately take the child into execution, and they would destroy the child. So if you fear, then place the child in the river. Now,

00:20:13 --> 00:20:31

in a little box, a little wooden box, I either made of reeds or made of little bamboo, we don't know exactly what it's made of either a basket or a box. And Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed the mother, to place the child and to put the child into the Nile. And Allah says, Don't worry, and don't be sad.

00:20:32 --> 00:20:34

So Allah instructed her, saying,

00:20:35 --> 00:20:50

You breastfeed him. And if you're feeling, then you put him into the Nile in this specific manner. And then Allah says, and do not worry, and do not be sad, not at all, we will indeed return him to you.

00:20:52 --> 00:21:00

We will return him to you at a specific stage. And we will make him from amongst those whom we will send with the message. So she knew

00:21:02 --> 00:21:07

now which mother would not be feeling in her heart, and the concern

00:21:09 --> 00:21:40

Who would ever take their child and say, right, this is a lake, you know, the Nile is huge, even if it's a little lake around here. So let's just test this just what happened to the Prophet Moses, put your child in waterproofs, little, you know, box, which is completely sealed with oxygen and everything and leave it there and stand and wait, would anyone do that? No, not at all. Not even, they wouldn't even think of it. And Allah says, Now we inspired her to do this. Now this has to have been solid, powerful inspiration, because without it, that wouldn't have happened.

00:21:41 --> 00:21:56

So she came, she prepared the box, and she placed the child by the will of Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how he guided how he guided this, this little Mashallah basket, if we call it or a wooden box, if we call it

00:21:58 --> 00:22:40

imagine any one of us who's been to Egypt and seeing the Nile, huge river, with lots of people living all over the show. Imagine it actually went it was gliding it, it was floating, and nobody picked it up. Not at all. And where did it land? It landed specifically at a spot designated by Allah subhanho wa Taala. This shows that Allah is in control of absolutely everything. You know, we spoke about the death of the Prophet Noah Bismillah he muda Mombasa, In the name of Allah, it will start and In the name of Allah, it will stop this thing started in the name of Allah and it stopped in the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It lodged itself on the bank right at the doorstep of

00:22:40 --> 00:23:00

Fairgrounds own house. Now, I guess most probably it's not from a Kitab or anything, but we are just trying to visualize it. If you try to get to around the palace, it would probably be difficult on land, you would have to pass so many checkpoints or what have you. But when you came from the sea, it went straight there and it landed in his backyard

00:23:01 --> 00:23:05

straight there sleeping some Hannah law and they didn't have children around was not blessed with kids.

00:23:07 --> 00:23:25

One might ask Well, which one of the pharaohs was eaten all that we don't need to know whether it was Ramses the second or not, we don't really need to know if it was not explained to us by the prophet sallallahu Sallam oh by the Quran, we don't need to know it. It is not of essence. So Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter, says

00:23:26 --> 00:23:27

la cabeza

00:23:33 --> 00:23:35

de una Allahumma

00:23:37 --> 00:23:38


00:23:39 --> 00:23:51

it was picked up by the wife of your own family of your own without knowing that this is going to be a point and the source of enmity and sadness for the federal

00:23:52 --> 00:24:21

so she didn't know now masala is around for your information was dark in complexion. He was dark in complexion according to what Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam says, and later on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam describes him as a well built solid, strong man with a beard and he was dark in complexion Musa alayhis Salatu was salam, very strong, you can imagine he grew up in the fifth round in the phenolic palace, so to speak, in the early stages of his life, probably being fed Mashallah.

00:24:22 --> 00:24:38

And he was a big man, powerful, powerful person. We'll come to see that a little bit later. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about him as helpless as he was at this stage, but he was being protected by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Nothing anybody can do to you or your child,

00:24:39 --> 00:24:42

except by the will of Allah. Allah is in control.

00:24:43 --> 00:24:59

May Allah subhanho wa Taala guide us all and give us a deep understanding. So she picked the child up and Allah says in around our Harmon our john O'Donoghue, man can call me indeed Farah

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

And Harmon Harmon was one of his closest aides.

00:25:04 --> 00:25:09

And Allah says the Army's belonging to the two of them were definitely wrong.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:43

Imagine a superpower, a massive force, who called himself God, who called himself God, he made the decisions. And Allah says we're gonna send you one men, one men law, and here is the little child. Nobody knows. They don't know. And Allahu Akbar is just Allah subhanho wa Taala and his will. Now the child comes picked up by the wife, fairly skeptical, but he wants to make his wife happy because they had no children. So she looks and says, Oh, what a wonderful baby wirkkala Chima to Tirana, como

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

la taco to know,

00:25:56 --> 00:25:58

the wife of Iran says, Oh,

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

this is the coolness of my eyes and yours look a child as though it's God since we don't have children, maybe we will be able to benefit from this child and even consider him our own son.

00:26:12 --> 00:26:24

Look at this. Had he had so many children, this wouldn't have happened. But Allah subhanho wa Taala kept it a specific way. Because Allah His plan was already there in place from a long, long time before.

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

Allah gives us a chance.

00:26:27 --> 00:26:52

And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows how many chances he's going to give us. But we don't know. So we better make most of the chances we have at hand. Because that's what we know, are there or is there may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to seize the opportunities to turn to him and not to wait until it is too late. So if Iran was very skeptical, and so on, you know, it is reported it is a Hebrew narration, It is reported that around.

00:26:54 --> 00:27:00

We have this narration that we've heard, we report It is reported that Iran wanted to test the child because he was very skeptical.

00:27:02 --> 00:27:42

So he looked at the child after a little while after some time. And he says let us put something that children would run towards or would go towards would crawl towards on one side, and the fire is on the other side. If this child goes towards that which the children go towards normally, then this child is like every other child and we will have to execute the child. And if the child goes towards the fire and picks up the little piece of coal, then that means this child here really won't be able to do any harm because it doesn't know what is right from wrong from this age. And it doesn't even have that common sense. In that case, we will keep the child so it is reported it is said by the

00:27:42 --> 00:28:23

historians that masala ceremony was put down he crawled towards and this was a little bit later on. He crawled towards the colon and picked it up and this is how he burned himself. And this is why he had a stutter later on. But Allah knows whether that is actually accurate or not. We've mentioned it because later on he did have a stutter. And he did have some form of a knot which prevented him from being so eloquent. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says when the child was picked up, now the child began to cry for move. So now they trying to breastfeed any woman who'd given birth. They try the child to soccer, but the child refused. One refusing to leave you they brought whoever they could refuse

00:28:23 --> 00:28:35

everyone is refusing lavaca they will refusing to soccer, meaning he is refusing from them. And they all trying in their own beautiful ways. And everybody came What an honor, they could have made a lot of money from the pharaoh

00:28:36 --> 00:28:59

is the people around around they wanted to make a lot of merchandise from it. And they wanted to be close to him so that they could also have you know, they had a hierarchy system, the pyramid scheme, the pyramid system, right at the top. This one only one fits anyway. And as they grow as they go lower, there are more and more people those ranks so this is how they operated. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks so beautifully about what happened.

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

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We sent the sister of Musa alayhis salam to go into the palace.

00:29:11 --> 00:29:31

She went into the palace and found that they are looking for someone to breastfeed the child. She says Hang on, I know someone who is such a good mother. She will breastfeed in such a way that this child will definitely drink. They say no, no, no, bring her bring her straightaway. Bring her.

00:29:32 --> 00:29:39

Look how Ella's plan is. Allah told his mother, don't worry. Put him down. We're going to return him to you very soon. You come back, don't worry.

00:29:41 --> 00:29:56

Moments had to pass. She was there in the palace. And Subhana Allah, she said, and he began to soccer. They were shocked. They were shocked. So if Iran is asking her, how is he suckling from you? Who are you?

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

She didn't want to lie.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:20

At the same time he had she told the truth, it was the end of all of it. So she says, Look, I have some very sweet milk. And no child has ever refused my * Not at all. So she avoided the question. And she answered in a beautiful way. And this child began to suckle. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Father, faraja, Dana

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


00:30:33 --> 00:30:46

we returned him to his mother in order to, for him to be the coolness of her eyes. And so that she would not be sad, and so that she would know that the promise of Allah is definitely true.

00:30:47 --> 00:30:57

Now, how many of us, when Allah subhanho wa Taala told us you do good deeds, Allah will reward you, but we do good deeds, and then we say, I'm still suffering in life. Why do we lose? Oh?

00:30:58 --> 00:31:13

How many of us, we do good deeds, and we say we still suffering? No. Remember? What Allah has, Allah has promised is the truth. It will come when the time is right, don't worry. Sometimes we have to also let go.

00:31:14 --> 00:31:34

I want to spend a moment speaking to those who've lost their children at an early age. Don't worry, a day will come when Allah will unite you with those children in the era. We've not lost them for good. We all going. We're all going in one direction. Everybody's heading in one direction. Nobody's telling me I'm going closer to birth. You know?

00:31:35 --> 00:31:45

This is why they say How old are you? They don't say how young are you? Because you're getting older. And then you say I'm 21 years old. You don't say I'm 21 years young.

00:31:47 --> 00:32:02

Because you know you're getting older and older. Allahu Akbar. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells this to us that he made sure his promise was definitely true. And she was very, very happy. And now let me quickly explain to you what was happening. Then.

00:32:04 --> 00:32:25

She was escorted. She was receiving a stipend for what she was doing. She was being looked after. They were all being nourished. They were all being fed everything free of charge on the house, so to speak. Everything and around. He's excited because the wife is carrying the baby and she's smiling and so happy. And he's just happy to see how happy

00:32:27 --> 00:32:47

and this mother, there are two, two reports two interpretations. She either took the child away to breastfeed and used to bring the child back regularly or she used to come regularly to breastfeed either way, is not very important. What we need to know is Allah subhana wa Taala returned Musa alayhis salam to them Allah.

00:32:50 --> 00:33:07

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all a lesson from this. Remember, whenever parents are separated from their children, they will come a day that Allah subhanho wa Taala will unite them by kukaku. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to open our doors and to have mercy on us all.

00:33:08 --> 00:33:30

Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he grew in the home. And as he grew a little bit older, he was looked after so well you can imagine being brought up not even equivalent to a presidential who knows something beyond that someone saying I am God, I am God. And musala Islam was brought up and Allah says, Allah, Allah I should.

00:33:37 --> 00:34:04

masini when he grew to a certain age, when he grew to a certain age, Allah subhanho wa Taala says he uses the word a should he got to a certain peak. And Allah says we granted him Pokemon Weidman Pokemon meaning, the ability to distinguish between what is right and wrong, that wisdom, that authority, that understanding and knowledge as well over and above that. And Allah says, This is how we recompense those who do good.

00:34:07 --> 00:34:09

Now those who did good, Allahu Akbar,

00:34:10 --> 00:34:36

the mother of Musa alayhis salam did good by obeying the instructions of Allah and Musa alayhis salam himself being young, he had grown up firmly believing in his heart, that this man here is not God, and he's not even a part of God, and He is nothing but a normal human being. And he was intact within he already knew who he was, he knew his true identity. And he always worshipped the one and only created

00:34:37 --> 00:34:39

in the face of all this adversity.

00:34:40 --> 00:34:55

And in the face of being of living within an environment that constantly reminded one of this person claiming to be God, he still maintained that belief of his and it was intact. This is the reward of Allah.

00:34:57 --> 00:34:59

So with us as well, no matter what invited

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

We go into our Dean comes first. And let's make sure that nothing will shake our belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala nothing at all. And we need to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and sacrifice in that regard as well. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:35:17 --> 00:35:22

What does Allah Allah Medina tala Haney was letting me in

00:35:24 --> 00:35:26

July 2013

00:35:27 --> 00:35:44

he entered the city. Now he never used to go there often because he was from the elite considered, but when he entered the city, people would notice him immediately. So he went at a time when everyone was resting, reported in the afternoon when they were resting. He came out and he noticed two people fighting

00:35:46 --> 00:35:56

had I mean she it was Amina Dewey, this was from Vanessa is the one and the other one was from the people around who considered Fiona God and so on.

00:35:58 --> 00:36:02

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says the power of this young man he was still young

00:36:04 --> 00:36:12

firewalkers Abu Musab acaba, la la cama. Musa alayhis salam went a little bit further

00:36:13 --> 00:36:15

and gave this man one blow

00:36:17 --> 00:36:23

and this man was dead. He died imagine one blow look at how powerful this man must have been.

00:36:24 --> 00:36:28

Now to determine your power and mind let's not go blowing people in Sharla

00:36:29 --> 00:36:54

but look at how powerful was at a salon was one blow he did not intend to do anything more than fixing this man and trying to teach him a lesson Hey, don't miss but this went beyond what he had intended. And it was unintentional completely. As soon as he saw this man drop dead. He says have Amina militia on in Abu

00:36:56 --> 00:37:12

Dhabi. This is from Shay fans anyway, remember, we said blame shavon Yes, this is from Shay fans handiwork. The devil has done this. The devil is an outright enemy. He leads astray. Clearly. He's an outright enemy.

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

So he asks Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive him.

00:37:20 --> 00:37:35

Lo Akbar and Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives masala salatu wa sallam, but there is a problem. Because now he's living in a little bit of fear. No one knows besides one man that he has done this. He went back, no one's seen it. Everyone was resting.

00:37:36 --> 00:37:43

And what happened was Ali Salam. The following day, he decided let's go back into the city and see what's happening. So he went back the following day.

00:37:45 --> 00:37:57

And the next day, he seemed to people fight again. And when he seemed to people fight again, he noticed that the one who was from his people was the same man who was fighting yesterday.

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

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, phylum philam arada

00:38:04 --> 00:38:27

binladin Luma palaia Moosa, la cama musataha salam wanted to go forth in order to deal with the crisis in a similar manner. This man says Oh, Moses almost to redo taco toolani comma cartel tariffs. Bill AMS you want to kill me in a similar manner that you killed that man yesterday. Now everybody heard.

00:38:29 --> 00:38:31

Everybody heard cat is out of the bag.

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

You want to kill me just like you killed that man yesterday.

00:38:42 --> 00:38:46

And he continued to say, to redo in takuna just

00:38:47 --> 00:38:59

fill out the warmer to redo takuna mina mostly when you only want to be a Jabbar. A bar means a powerful tyrant, a tyrant. That's the right translation.

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

In this particular constant context, when it's referring to a human being, it would mean it's a tyrant one who has killed more than two people.

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

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:39:13 --> 00:39:49

lumen apostle Medina tiasa, a man from the inner part of the city came running to Musa alayhis salam. He says yamasa in Alma Jamuna Big O Moses, almost la salam, the Chiefs these big big people, they are planning against you now, Leah ko Toluca in order to kill you. They want to now kill you for Raja so please leave the city just go away and abscond. Leave now. In Nila kameena now saying I am definitely someone who's genuine. I have a genuine feeling for you.

00:39:50 --> 00:39:53

I'm advising you with sincerity. Now see how

00:39:55 --> 00:39:59

so Allah subhanho wa Taala says for her Raja min hatha

00:40:01 --> 00:40:36

terra cotta color of Bina Jeannie minakami. Me, so he left immediately. He didn't have time to prepare for this levy Not at all. Because Allah says Faraj Amina soon as he was given this advice he left and he was gone out walking out. Remember he had not gone anywhere before this. So he didn't even know the roads very well he just started walking. And he walked it is reported until his shoes were now worn completely and he had got somewhere. So imagine what distance he must have covered

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

Phelim da

00:40:43 --> 00:40:47

da da da, ba da nice.

00:40:48 --> 00:41:10

Seven, when he walked towards madeon when he faced madeon he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to guide him, praying that he Allah guide me to the path guide me towards some goodness on this path. And Allah says while I'm dama de vida de la omata minun as he is

00:41:12 --> 00:41:29

when he got to the the well, or the water of Medina, the place where they used to make their flocks drink from the people of Medina. He saw this and he rested for a while he'd seen everyone is making their flock drink water

00:41:31 --> 00:41:54

while Jimena Dhoni mama attain Ito Danny Allah Maha Babu Kuma he sought to women as well, from all the men who are making their sheep drink, he'd seen two women and those women, they were slightly behind. They were at the back. They were not in the rush of all the men. So he asked them, you looked at them and he says, What is it with the two of you?

00:41:56 --> 00:41:59

Allah tala and SP had the

00:42:03 --> 00:42:24

cabbie look at how they answered. Look at how they answered they said, Look, we are not going to go and let our sheep drink or our flock drink until these people go back. And our father is an elderly man. Why did they add the second part of the statement? He didn't ask them. Is your father older young?

00:42:25 --> 00:42:40

Because primarily it's a man's job. So before he develops any thoughts, they thought, let's clarify to say look, the reason why we as women are standing here with these sheep and not the men of our house because our father is very old.

00:42:41 --> 00:42:58

So here we've learned also from Panama, the role of a male in the home and in the case where it is not being fulfilled for some reason of this nature. Here you have an answer that is given by these women saying this is why we are now fulfilling it.

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

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson.

00:43:04 --> 00:43:20

So he decided okay, you people can sit down, let me do something. He went, he got some buckets of water and he let all this flock drink all of them. He did it himself. And they took their flock and they went home.

00:43:21 --> 00:43:32

And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this in a beautiful way. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, fossa Kala Houma from Allah, Allah will

00:43:33 --> 00:43:35

be in neelima

00:43:36 --> 00:43:37

de la Ameen.

00:43:39 --> 00:44:11

Sati he had made these are this flock drink of the two women. And then he reclined in the shade. And he made the dua to Allah saying, Oh Allah, I am in need of any goodness that you send in my direction. I'm in need of goodness, I need something now. I need your help. Obviously, he needs a home, he needs a place. He needs food. He needs clothing, he needs so many things. He's a stranger that people don't know him and at the same time, he needs shelter.

00:44:14 --> 00:44:20

And as he's making this, he notices something. Allah says Allah Subhana Allah.

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

Allah is

00:44:27 --> 00:44:36

one of the two women who were there moments ago whom he had helped his walking back in a very modest way. She's walking back.

00:44:37 --> 00:44:41

Now what did she want? She came all the way to him and she says, In

00:44:42 --> 00:44:55

Kenya Jessica dorama Sakai talana. My father is calling you in order to give you a reward for what you did for us in that you made our flock blink. So my father would like to see

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

so this he knew

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

Immediately I made the dua to Allah. There's something now coming in my direction, goodness. So he went, now it is reported, It is reported that she was of such a modest level. And he was even higher than him that he instructed her. It is said, Allah, Allah, that, look your home, I don't know where it is, but you walk behind me and guide me left or right. And I walk in front of you, just so that his eyes did not gaze around here and they massage a salon. And what happened as a result, she knew this man is very pure, he's honest. Another thing is he's very, very hard working. Because we've seen the work he did. And he was stronger than all these men. We finished so quick today. And that's

00:45:42 --> 00:45:53

why when we went back, our father asked us How can you finish so quickly, and then they had told the story and he said, Go back and call this man and let's give him something in return, he can just do that for free.

00:45:54 --> 00:45:57

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says farlam

00:45:59 --> 00:46:07

casalino cosas por la la of na Jota minakami la de mi.

00:46:09 --> 00:46:37

It is reported by some of the historians that this man was Shai Valley center. And this was madeon. This was also an OB of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Midian. This is what is reported, obviously this is not in the Quran. Nor is it in the Sunnah of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, but the Allah and the historians from amongst the muslimeen, as well of the opinion the bulk of them, that this was tri Valley Salatu was Salam in Midian.

00:46:38 --> 00:47:01

So Musa alayhis salam goes there, and he narrates the stories, what stories how he was born, and what happened and who found is and what he does and what he did and so on and why he had to come. And when he heard the stories, he says, Don't fear no, Jota you have been saved. You have been saved from those from the people who are oppressors you've been saved from these oppressors. Don't worry.

00:47:03 --> 00:47:06

So one of the young girls tells the father

00:47:07 --> 00:47:08


00:47:11 --> 00:47:26

in firemen is Joe, tell me, one of the young girls tells the father Oh my father, why don't you employ him? It is definitely best to employ someone who is strong and honest,

00:47:27 --> 00:47:44

hardworking and honest. And these two qualities to this day, if you want to employ someone who has these two qualities your business will flourish by the will of Allah. If you have someone who's absolutely honest, but they're lazy or not hardworking. What happens? Your Business slides

00:47:46 --> 00:47:50

Mashallah the youngsters of today Come 11 o'clock they still snoring? La Cava.

00:47:52 --> 00:48:26

Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection sometimes I sit and I think, you know, we're going to have nowadays we say eight to five. Soon it's going to be one to eight because the youngsters just don't get up. But Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant has a deep understanding. And if you have someone who's very very hard working, but he's not honest, what happens so hole in the bucket, Mashallah, as you carry it, it's releasing, so you carry it because you're very powerful, but you're just letting it drop as it's going. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala, safeguarded this man was honest and hardworking at the same time.

00:48:27 --> 00:48:30

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says that Musa alayhis salam

00:48:32 --> 00:48:34

was told by this man should I evaluate Salam

00:48:36 --> 00:48:40

in me? N ki haka Davina.

00:48:43 --> 00:48:49

giorni samanya eg g for in at mem Dasha. femin

00:48:50 --> 00:48:52


00:48:53 --> 00:48:56

colic, SATA, g. dooney. me.

00:49:03 --> 00:49:16

Sure. I tells this man, I want to get you married to one of my two daughters here on condition that you serve me for eight years. You work for me for eight years. Please, let's not get ideas here.

00:49:17 --> 00:49:54

You don't tell your son in law worked for me for eight years. This we are talking of what Allah subhanho wa Taala had sent as a blessing to Mousavi Salaam in the time of his need, and there was nothing wrong with it. And even up to this day, if someone really tells you that and that's what they want from you and that's their condition. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us people who make easy marriage and not difficult whenever there is marriage, the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says Elijah Manta bernadina who Luca who was a widow, in light of an otaku fitna will be of a certain area. If someone comes to you with a proposal, whom you are satisfied with their level of

00:49:54 --> 00:49:59

Deen and character, then get them married. If you are going to hinder it. They will be great corruption on earth and vice

00:50:00 --> 00:50:10

So don't hinder May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us in sha Allah the understanding and inshallah the ability to distinguish between what is beneficial for us and what is detrimental.

00:50:11 --> 00:50:45

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, He says you work for me eight years and if you want to complete 10 whole years then that is from your own goodness and inshallah you will find me being a person who is also good inshallah, you know, like the employer telling the employee and vice versa to say Don't worry, I will also be good to you, you also you work properly inshallah and we have a good relation and Allah subhanho wa Taala does not give too much detail of how the working went. But what we do know for sure is he was now a shepherd, and he had a flock and Allah subhanho wa Taala trained him. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala says, through the lips of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:50:45 --> 00:51:12

mermin Abbey in illawarra, Alabama, I think I mentioned this hadith at the beginning, that every Nabhi of Allah has been at some stage a shepherd, where Allah has tested them and train them through animals, because the amount of patience you need with animals is far more so now when you are sent to human beings to speak to them, it will be much easier for you to deal with human beings after you've been dealing with animals who couldn't even understand your language.

00:51:14 --> 00:51:17

So Musa alayhis salam received this training for 10 whole years.

00:51:18 --> 00:51:57

And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned to us that from the two he had served the longer and the better, the one which was more complete, and after that musala is salatu wa sallam, he got married Mashallah, who was very happy, he took his wife and now he wanted to go something within him told him I need to go back home to see my folks and so on. And this was the opening of a whole new chapter in the life of Musa alayhis salaam inshallah tomorrow we have an appointment with that until we meet again, was Allahu wa salam wa barik ala nabina, Muhammad Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah Mohammed Ganesha to Allah Allah, Allah

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


Musa (as) and Haroon (as)
