Musa (as) and Bani Israel– Part 1
Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu lillahi wa sallahu wa salam o Baraka de la Vina stafa All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless him, and all his family members, his companions and every single one of us may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, beloved brothers and sisters this evening we will be continuing with the story of the Prophet Moses musala is Salatu was Salam May peace be upon him. And what happened after the Pharaoh of Iran was drowned and they were now on the other side of the Red Sea. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about what happened the first thing as
they crossed, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, WA was gonna be Benny is raw in Allah Illa
Allah pomi acuna Allah
as Islam m cross, they came across some people who were worshipping some idols or lujah Moosa, Jana Isla, Jelena camela.
They said oh Moosa, we would like you to appoint for us some idols just like they have idols, so we can worship a few of these.
Look at these people.
They were just saved from Iran, by the will of Allah by the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala moments ago, they crossed and in a short period of time, they already were excited by what some others were doing. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson. masala salatu wa sallam responded to them.
lieu, he said, You are people who are completely ignorant, in
mellow on all these people,
what they are in is completely wrong, it is utterly useless, it is a means of their destruction. And what they are doing is completely out of the fold of what is correct. They have engaged in polytheism they have involved or worshipped gods and deities with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you are asking me to come and appoint for you something of this nature. Now there is a narration of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that once on a journey. Some of the companions, this was the early stages when they were traveling with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, they said,
they saw a tree upon which some of the people used to hang whatever they wanted, they used to come and hang their sword so that if they fight with that sword, it would actually be a means of their victory and so on. And they would hang their wishes draw them, you know, write them on a paper and hang them or whatever it was, but they used to call it that to unwind, which means things where a tree where things used to be hung, and they used to believe certain beliefs that it's going to bring us good fortune. And they told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he Jelena that to Anwar Kamala home that Anwar that we want you to make us for also a tree similar to this look, they're
hanging things, it's good. They've got the swords on they, we want you to also make us some form of a tree that we can also hang our items and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded, that do not be like those of musala his Salatu was Salam whom when they had crossed they said we want we seeing these people worship idols are we looking it seems okay, it's fine. We want to do the same. In our language they call it monkey see, monkey do. Allah protect us.
So we need to learn a lesson. Not everything you see happening around you is correct. You need to know what is knowledge, you need to know what is right. You need to understand what looks good is not always good. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Sometimes people will be doing something it might be looking like it's okay. They look like they are really enjoying it, but it might be the source of downfall. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us.
And so thereafter, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Now they had got to the other side, mousseline salatu wa sallam reminded them to say, don't you remember it, Angelina coming early for Allah. Allah says, We have saved you from the family of around, he was killing your boys and he was allowing some of you to live and so on. Don't you remember all that it happened moments ago. So worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. Now as they got to the other side, they needed food. They needed water.
They needed something to drink something to eat. So they told Mussolini Salama Musa, we want you to pray to Allah. Now, before we speak of this prayer, it is important for us to know that at that time, Magic was at its peak. The Magicians as you know, they were all over Egypt. And they had accepted Islam, who accepted Islam, the cream of the crop, which means the top magicians, they all accepted Islam, because they knew the difference between the magic they were engaging in and what Musa alayhis salam had come with. So at that time, when people used to witness magic, it was not a big deal to them. But when Musa alayhis salam came with something it was totally different. The
Magician's might make a spring look like it's gushing. But you can't go there and drink from it. No. So look at masala is Salatu was salam, his people told him we want you to make dua to Allah. And we want you to ask Allah for us, we need some water we need something here. So Allah says, what he this test car moves and he told me he Hakuna biasa Cal hotjar when Musa alayhis salam asked us to quench the thirst on behalf of his people he asked a question we want something to drink. Allah says we ordered him to use the same stick and to hit the rock. When he beat the rock Allah says
fetch Allah min was Natasha Dinah cada una Masha home 12 different springs gushed out of that huge rock. And because they were members of the families of 12 of the children of Jacob jacobellis salatu salam, they were part of 12 different families 12 different lineages, each one knew exactly which spring belonged to their particular group, and they all drank from their particular spring.
That was a miracle. Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this in the Quran. And as they went further, they felt hungry.
And it was a Desert, desert land.
Bay. They were no trees. There was no vegetation. It was not like Egypt across the Red Sea. It was bare land. So they asked Allah for shade. And they asked Musa alayhis salam for food, ask Allah subhana wa Taala we'd like something. So Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them What did he give them? He says, well, Nalin como la Mama,
Salma, kulu, Paiva tema, Rosa Kona. Allah says, we caused a cloud to be a barrier between them and the sun. The cloud came in Valentina Allah. Allah says for you obey Him. We even use the clouds to shade you. And on top of that, we released for you from us, the food the divine food, known as elmen was Salwa men is a type of grain and Salwa is a type of a bird. Some say it is a quail. So Allah says, We gave that to you, Allah says, eat and thank Allah enjoy the meal and you thank Allah be grateful and protect yourself from mischief making. So Mashallah they began to eat, they were drinking, they were happy, they were excited. Now, as they were eating Allah subhanho wa Taala sent
down a message to musala in salatu salam, remember the chronological order is not exactly known in the books of history, but all these are made mention of in the Quran and the order it is quite close to one another. So one might have happened slightly before the other or so on. We are not 100% sure as to the precise order of
time. But what we do know is all this has happened because it is in the Quran. Allah says what you call mo Salah Tommy Yeah, Tommy
Allah me. And remember when Moses told his people may peace be upon him, when Musa alayhis salam told his people, oh my people, bear in mind the favor of your Abba for you. He has saved you not only from your own but he has favored you in such a great way that he made from you, the kings and the prophets. They are from you. The King use of Allah is Salatu was Salam later became a king. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of how the prophets are all from Vanessa in the children of Jacob. So Musa alayhis salam is telling his people look, remember of the gift of Allah upon you, in that he has made from you the kings and the prophets and he has given you what he has not given
others of your time.
The others of your time they don't have all this, no one was saved with this stick. No one walks through the ocean. Nobody had men and Silva from Allah subhanho wa Taala. No one had a cloud that protected them completely at that particular time. So he says, Now Allah has issued an instruction for us.
de la de la Hola, como la,
Cali mufa. Siri, oh my people into the blessed land, the blessed land of Jerusalem, into this blessed land, and do not turn back, we are going to go there. And we will be victorious over the people that are there. Do not go back because then you will be losers.
Now these people, they were used to be around, and they were used to everything he said. And they had this mentality where they became very stubborn, very, very stubborn. They were frightened for everything. And at the same time, they did not want to believe anything. And at the same time, even though they knew it was a messenger, but they thought we wanted the easy way. We don't want to make an effort. We just wanted the easy way. So they told Musa alayhis salam in common Jabari, in, in that particular town that you want us to enter the city of Jerusalem, there are people who are very oppressive. There are people who are tyrants. There are people who are very abusive and so on. How
do you expect us to go into war in the hula Ha ha,
ha, we're not going to go in there until those people come out of that place. We're not going to go but Musa alayhis salam is saying oh my people, let us all enter together. And we will be victorious. They say No, those are people which are which are people who will harm us people who are very powerful. We don't want to go there.
And Mussolini's enemies, looking at them, asking them what is it I'm instructing you? moments ago, we were saying, Look at the gift of Allah for so long. We were those who are considered the scum of society. That's what was considered as that when they were in Egypt. Now Allah has raised you He destroyed your enemy. And Allah has granted you so much. And he's asking you to go into the city. They refused. In the fula Madam Madam oofy Massara Hassan tried again, they said no ways we are never going to go in there.
buka katella in punakha
go You and your Rob, go and fight them, remove them then call us we will come in enjoy. We're going to go into the city. How they were addressing their own messenger. Tara bukata Tila go you and Europe. Why did they say you and Europe
because they knew all the signs were coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala. We know the signs come from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when the instruction comes from the same club, we need to surrender to it. This was the first instruction for them. They refused. They didn't want so Allah subhanho wa Taala was very upset, very angry with them. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, may Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us remember, when we are instructed to enter or to engage in an act of worship or do something for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala we must engage in it wholeheartedly. If not we will be rejected. Allah subhanho wa Taala does not need my act of worship. No yours. We need it more
than anything else it will help us so Allah subhanho wa Taala says
Paula being Neela amli kwinana Rafi
comin fancy been Masada is Salam ADA, Allah, you've issued me an instruction here. I only have command over myself and my brother Harun the rest, I don't have a command over them. Look at what they are saying. So separate between us. So Allah says in Mohammed Rama to him in Asana, it will be prohibited for them for 40 years to have any form of dwelling. They won't go into the city and they won't go anywhere for 40 years. Yet de una fille de falla, Salah Tommy will fess up, they will just be wandering on the earth. So do not be saddened by the condition of the mischief makers. These are Mischief Makers. Allah is punishing them. What is it called in Arabic They call it T T, meaning the
land of wandering. So that day from that day for 40 years, these people used to get up in the morning and try to go and look for an abode and they would come back in the evening exactly where they started. They couldn't find anything and they didn't want to go in
To the city, and they now could not go into the city and they couldn't go this way here there's a see they couldn't go in the other direction in that direction. They used to just get up in the morning, wander around, come back, and they used to eat man and Salwa and drink from the water that Allah provided them.
So the moral that we learn one of the lessons we learn, when we do not hold fast to the gift of Allah upon us, he may take it away.
Allah has given us a foreign Allah has given us the sooner of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah has given us the laws of the Sharia. Today, in tonight's verses we heard a powerful verse Allah says, will
if you are going to turn away, we will substitute you with others we will bring others who will not be turning away they won't be like you We don't need you ally saying so whenever we have laws, let's abide by them. So Allah has used us to abide by the laws. If Allah says read your Salah five times a day, today we had a talk in hider felt a few moments ago at the door. And I made mention of how if a rich man had to tell you, I am prepared to give you the biggest building in Cape Town on condition that you come to me. Talk to me for five minutes five times a day. only talk to me nothing else. What would we do? We'd say Uncle 10 minutes, not five and getting that building. The Arabella that
day is going to be mine only for talking for five minutes.
What about Salah? What is Allah asking you to do? He's not asking you to pump weights.
while lying it's a fact there's no effort required you are standing and you just want to make will do and come still we feel lazy and Allah says forget about one building in Cape Town forget about Cape Town, forget about the whole world you will have the world and whatever it holds 10 times and even more.
Can we can read Salah now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding to talk only to communicate with Allah for five to 10 minutes five times a day. Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for him. So these were the people of Musa alayhis salam when they refused Allah said wait, we give it to someone else you can now go you know in the Arabic language they have a saying at a haka Tamra for in Lamia genre. That is a powerful thing in the Arabic language. Give your brother a date. Give him some goodness, if he doesn't want give him a red hot cold. Tell him Okay, take it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So this is what happened to these people. They got a little date they got
something good because they didn't want it. It was taken away and they got a jumper in return. Allah says Yeti hoonah so now they were on the land. Now they came stubbornness even more stubbornness because they were now upset. But why should they be upset? they asked for trouble. Well, ah Honey, you want to move Allah, Allah is independent. You are the ones who are in need of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
they started becoming unruly, and they started doing as they please so mu Salli salatu wa salam made the dua to Allah Allah. I would like some laws, some regulations, something that we can govern these people with something that they can follow rules and regulations in order that they may succeed. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Allah,
Allah, Allah Allah.
Big Fat m amico Torabi in Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed Musa alayhis salam to fast for 30 days in seclusion, he had to fast for 30 days in seclusion. And for some reason, Allah subhanho wa Taala later decided to add another 10 days, there are some narrations as to why the 10 days were added, but it's not in the Quran, we will just say the total of it was 40 days of fasting and of acts of worship mousseline Salaam in seclusion, before he went out. Allah had told him, You will come you will engage in fasting, you will meet me at a specific place where Allah had met him first where Allah spoken spoke to him in the first place. And I will give you some instructions, these 10
commandments that we hear about they had come to Musa alayhis salam at that time, and they were given to him and the Quran holds them and has them they are written in the Koran. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, This is what you shall do and appoint Your brother has grown to take care of the masses whilst you are away. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Musa alayhis salam chose Harun alayhi salam to be the one who will look after the people whilst he was away. Allah says what Allah mu Sally Aki
nee v Cami was me while
Sabina move CD he says Oh Ha Ha
I'm going to go for Allah subhanho wa Taala instruction to fulfill it. And I want you to take care of these people in my absence, and I want you to do good. I want you to be upright, and I want you never to follow the path of the mischief makers. Why was he instructing his brother not to follow the path of the mischief makers, because those who are mischievious were very, very strong. They had with them some of the jewelry that was left behind by fear around the jewelry, and some of the gold and what have you, that was left by Freetown and his people, these people had gathered it and they took it with them, some people had taken as much as they can, and they had gone.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, After that Musa alayhis salam went, when he went, he met Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Allah says wylam
Moosa de mi katene cartina
Allah Allah be Eleni.
iI musala. Salam, when to Allah, He spoke to Allah subhanho wa Taala at the same spot where Allah subhanho wa Taala had wanted him at that particular time. And he says, Yeah, Allah, I'd like to ask you something, I believe completely, but I want to see you Yama. I've heard you. I'm speaking to you. But I want to see you Yeah, Allah Musa alayhis salam. Allah says, Love Donny Donnie. You will never see me. No, not here. Not with these eyes. Not in this world. No.
Elan Jabba Ines De Palma mecca for some Fatah Ronnie. But look at that mount. If it remains in its place, that means you will be able to see me Phantom
boon in Jebel Jana.
All Allah says, When Allah subhanho wa Taala released some of the new on to that particular mount, it was destroyed to pieces and musalla insulin fell unconscious, gone.
And after some time, he got up he regained consciousness Allah says Phantom,
me, when he regained his consciousness, he said, Glory be to You speaking to Allah, Glory be to You. I seek forgiveness for having asked what I just asked. I am the first from the submitters.
Meaning he says I am the first from the believers, because he was a Muslim he had already submitted and he believed as well but now he believes even more firm, that this is Allah the whole mount was into pieces, and he had fell unconscious. So musala is salatu salam says, Well, I mean, I'm the first to believe.
So Allah tells him Allah Moosa in his
CV Salah t Wahby, kana me for Padma kawakubo Mina, Shakira in amasa, I have chosen you,
over and above all these people, for two things, I have chosen you over and above all these people for two things. The first is that I have spoken to you, and I am granting you Prophethood I'm making you a messenger, I have given you a message. So two things that happened to you that didn't happen to those around you, I have chosen you for in order to give you this ye. Now what was the difference between him and Harun Harun Allah is Salatu was Salam was in Nabi Musa alayhis salam was Rasool Moosa was given the book, Harun was helping him to convey that book.
So that's why Allah says we revealed to you and we spoke to you. So the people who are around you here, we have favored you, above all of them. So take this book, who take what we are giving you and be from amongst those who are thankful, and Musa alayhis salam was very, very thankful, and we will now speak about what happened when he went back.
Allah subhanho wa Taala asked him a question. Ma de la comida. Musa Musa, we gave you an appointed time and the place you've come to the place slightly before the time, why are you in a haste? He says yeah, Allah, I wanted to come to you I wanted to come to talk to you and I really wanted to come to get this book and Revelation, he was excited, Mashallah, it reminds me of us sometimes. We want to be early for those appointments where we're going to gain something Mashallah or we're going to lose something. You know, you've got a big appointment with the big lawyers what happens? You arrive 10 minutes in advance because they charge in units of three minutes.
Mashallah May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection.
May Allah make us regular with our Salah Salah is far more important. You come five minutes before 10 minutes before this is what it is why we love to communicate with Allah. Allah is Allah. Allah I love to communicate with you I came before time. So what about us now lawmakers regulan grant us an understanding. So because he did that and because he made the appointment of Allah He fulfilled the promise of fasting and what have you, Allah chose him, Allah will choose us for so much goodness in this world. Yes, no Buddha is complete. Prophethood is over with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Allah can choose us all for goodness, different forms of goodness, our crisis will be
solved in our homes when we obey Allah commands willingly, willingly. We want to do it yeah, I did it because I love you. Yeah, Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors.
So Allah says
that the people that you have left behind, there is a man known as Sam Mary, who has already began to lead them astray.
So anyway, when Messiah Salam got his Anwar his tablets, and it was already written, he picked them up from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he went away. These little tablets, Allah gave him already, and he went away. And he showed the people, in fact, the first thing he did, he put the tablets down, and he grabbed all of his brother, by his head and his beard, and he says, My brother, why didn't you stop these people engaging in what she did engaging?
When Musa alayhis salam went, it was 40 whole days. Haruna Hassan was trying with them, telling them you know what, let's worship Allah in a manner that he wants and don't engage in mischief and what have you, but there was a man known as seminary, he told everyone that I seen the angel.
When he was leaving, some dust fell off the hoof of the horse he was on. And I gathered that dust. Today you have people they show you weird things from their pockets. You know, I collected this from they this belongs to the Prophet knew I had someone come to me who told me this is from the ark. It was within the ark Mohali salaams Ark and I looked at him and uncle was looking so passionate. I just said make dua. Karina, what do you want me to say? If you make dua, you tell him No, he gives you a slap on your face. You tell him Yes, he's excited. He says you have condoned it. So you just say make do and you proceed. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. If you have a moment you need
to tell people brother, this is wrong. So Sam Lee, he was excited. He showed the people some dust. He says this dust is from the hoof of the horse of debris, la salatu salam. And he says I'm going to mix it now. Bring all the jewels all the jewelry you people have collected from the people of Iran, it is dirty, you can't use it, bring it we're gonna throw it in this fire. So he made a big fire. And they started throwing all the jewelry in the fire because melting as it's melting, he decided I want to mold a god for you people you see around us to worship also things and items. And he used to mold gold. We spoke about how they used to wear it as well. And they used to have their ancestors
and forefathers. Up to today you find in some places of Egypt. When they bury they have a very strange way of burying, they have a room under the ground and they just put the person and then they go away. The next one who dies they take him down into the same room put him next to that one. The next one who dies they take him down to the same room and put him next to that one. If you go to Egypt go and ask the people to show you they'll take you down into one of the rooms. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grant us goodness see people are looking frightened.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, These people Samira told them, we are we are now making a big animal calf. So he made from the gold and the silver and everything a calf the calf was hollow. Why hollow because they didn't have enough to make the cow fool from inside. And as the wind blew, it was making a sound. What
I mean by de Ming Li him, he just says Allah Who Who?
description of Allah. Allah says when Musa alayhis salam when his people started worshiping the calf, because he was making a noise when the wind blew because it was hollow. It made a sound doesn't sound when they heard the sound of God. It's got a life in it.
Look, how can you debate How can you argue come see that life? Listen to the sound. You think jewelry can make a sound. This is only a god that's why it's making a sound and they started worshiping. So Harun Allah salatu wa sallam told them what is it How can you wish if this they told him
had a GI in a no Moosa we will continue worshiping it until Musa comes back to us Who are you to tell us?
Now Mashallah Salam was a big powerful man. We know about that. When musala salat wa salam came, he grabbed hold of Harun shaking him Yeah. haruno mama
Emery, what's wrong with you when you saw them going astray? Why didn't you follow what I told you and sort it out? stop them from doing it. Why did you go against my instruction? He says, Yeah, banana. Oh, my brother in law who's been a teacher t wanna see don't hold my beard in my head in the Hershey
70 1am Taco Bell County, I had a different fear. My fear was that if I if I had been hard on them, I may have split the community into two. And you would have then come and say, yeah, hold on, why did you split why you should have waited for me?
So he says it was more important according to me to hold them together, knowing that you coming back with instruction.
So Harun Allah is Salatu was Salam tolerated one thing in order to achieve something else? And this was a huge crime it was she, to be honest. And Harun Allah is salat wa salam tried his best, but they didn't listen to him. So he left it at that and he told me Sally Salaam at least now they are in one piece, you can deal with him. So Musa alayhis salam asks the question straight to seminary, because Allah had told him who was the one who did it. So he says, ma hatanaka Sammy, what's your problem or summary? What is it that you did? So somebody answered in a silly manner. But so don't be mad at me ever. So I saw something that no one else saw is talking about the roof they talk about do
kabwata mean as soon so I got one handful of the dust from that horse from the hoof of the horse of the messenger of the angel.
Taco Bell taco bell bottom in Atari wrestling fan Abba Waka danika song wallet me NFC so my own mind and my own soul My desire told me that this is what I should do. I must put it into the fire together with all this and I should make something and that would be a God because the source of part of it was from the hoof of that particular horse that the angel came on. Now what he saw and what not all that he probably was hallucinating now Allah Subhana Allah protect us.
So Musa alayhis salam declared a punishment for him. color for the habit in Allah caffeine, hayati, tabula lamesa, as he said, Go for you from now on for the rest of your life, you will only be able to utter one word, and that is lamesa which means Don't touch me.
So Allah inflicted him with a severe disease where anyone who came near him he could only say Don't touch me. Don't touch me. Don't touch me throughout the rest of his life. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we're in la cama de la de la, and you have an appointed time and place that will never ever miss you. And you should know allow get hold of you for having encouraged and engaged in this and still when I'm asking you you proud to tell me what you did. No repentance, no nothing. So Allah says Musa alayhis salam told him
Illa Allah He can lead eventide A Kiva nano had a fun
look at this God that you were worshipping. We will burn it we will melt it completely and throw it into the water and that's what masala is salatu wa salam did. And then Musa alayhis salam looks at all the people and says in Marina who como la Marina
in Yoruba is the one Allah no one worthy of worship besides your maker. You never worship anything besides Allah subhanho wa Taala and he has the knowledge of absolutely everything.
So now he told his people, be careful, don't fall prey to what people around you who seem intelligent are telling you when they are calling you towards disobeying the command of Allah and were shipping items besides Allah subhanho wa Taala What a great lesson for us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
thereafter musala in salatu salam turns to his people, and he warned them and he reminded them once again about what happened with Iran and how they should not be engaging in all these sorts of Acts. And then he tells them I have come to you with this book with these tablets from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
They were enjoying life up to now they were doing as they pleased, it was very difficult for them now to obey the commands so they did not want to obey these instructions.
Allah subhanho wa Taala sent them instructions the commandments, they wanted to break all of them. In fact, they were not interested in
So in order to make them fulfill those commands, Allah did something.
What did he do?
Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
What is an attack on algebra whom can
be heard? Hello Ma, Tina kumiko we're going to force you to take this. Allah raised the mount mount to the whole mountain lifted off.
And he placed it on top of them. The mountain was above them. They looked up, they saw the whole mountain moved from each place, and it came on top. And it started coming slowly down as though it was now going to follow them. And Allah says, Are you going to fulfill the commandments we've sent to you? They said, Yes, indeed, we give you our covenant. We will fulfill these commandments, when they promise their promises, Allah cause the mountain to return to where it was. And Allah says this in the Quran in more than one place.
What is the name Nita Kumara, fatten. Aku Do you remember when we took the whole mountain above you and we made you make your promises and covenant Allah says, oh, boo Israel, don't go back.
And as the mount went down, some people began to follow a few things. And the others they still dilly dallying here and there, Allah makes mention of this. And Allah says that sign as well. Yes, it moved a lot of them but it did not move all of them and even from amongst them, they were people who continued Harrison musala salatu salam, O Allah subhanho wa Taala says
these are the signs of Allah. Allah shows us signs as well. But there are certain people who don't recognize the signs of Allah Who are they? Allah says, so also e4 and Latina Taka Bona fill of the void in half for a
minute. Those who are arrogant and haughty, we will divert our signs away from them, they won't be able to benefit from our signs. Those who are arrogant, they've got pride. They do not want to accept the truth. Allah says we will. We will divert our science from them, no matter how many signs they see of goodness and of a man they will never believe in those signs. And Allah says, what he knows to be LaRouche de la taheebo Sabina era Sabina Lee.
Allah says when they see the path of goodness they will be far away from it.
And when they see people engaging in evil, they will quickly run towards it.
Allah says Dolly cabana home Casa Bobby I attended this is because they belied our science, one of the biggest signs we have today living miracle
if we turn away from that Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala will consider us from amongst those who have turned away from the sign of Allah.
So we need to understand, let us adopt the entire Sharia. The Quran leads you to the sooner of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that leads you to the entire Sharia, we will adopt it and we will not be from amongst those who are cast into hellfire. May Allah protect us.
So Allah says, when people are arrogant, then whenever there is something bad, they are the first ones to say no, this is very good. Let us look into our own lives. When we see people doing things around us, some people call certain things religion. They say this is religion. This is what Allah intended. Well, that's what Israel did. That's what Sammy did. They Assamese in our midst, who keep on making us worship certain types of calves and what have you, and poles and people may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us we need to learn a lesson from the story of moose Allah is Salatu was salam, to save ourselves from the cemeteries in our midst, may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us
and grant a steadfastness and this is why these stories are in the Quran. They are not there to mention as folk tale No, they are there for me and you to draw lesson every time we need to remove the risks of our own Deen and our own religion. Because sometimes there is rushed we need to shine it off and make sure that we are following the deen of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we call ourselves Amati we call ourselves part of the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam but sometimes our actions are heading in a totally opposite direction. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson from this well I have not really gone deep into it but if you would like to go deep into
it, all you need to do is sit and think what happened with seminary and the calf and try and think how it happens in our lives and it will donate to you may Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors.
So yeah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says after that
People saw the signs. The book was they they told me Sally salatu salam, ala Moosa. We want to speak to Allah.
We now want to talk to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
You are speaking to him, we want to come and listen.
Look at this, we want to come and listen. So Allah subhanho wa Taala still he permitted that he allowed that. So Musa alayhis salam was told select 70 wise men from amongst your people and bring them Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. They can come and listen in. So hon Allah. So Musa alayhis salam, Allah says in the Quran was Dara moussaka Mousavi, Nora julienne Lee cartina. Musa alayhis. Salam chose 70 people to come to the appointed place where Allah subhanho wa Taala had instructed them to come.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala says
when they came there, they heard the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And amazingly, the people began to say no, we want to see Allah.
We want to see him. It's not enough that we hear him. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala was very, very angry again. So what did he do? Allah subhanho wa Taala sent a lightning and thunder together with a jolt, the tremor, and they all died. They all died. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about this in Surah to Bukhara first surah
Allah subhanho wa Taala says they all die. And Musa alayhis salam sought forgiveness for them yeah Allah. I seek forgiveness Allah these people yeah ALLAH forgive them and so on. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, from Abbas Nan comunidad de mano de como la la contesto.
We gave him life after they were dead. Once again, we brought them up back from the dead back to the living so that they can be thankful.
So those people I told you it was the peak of magic. But what masala Salam came with everybody knew this is not magic. It's divine. Because the magician's no matter what they could not give life to the date here, all of them died, and all of them came alive after some time when Musa alayhis salam ADA, Allah says in the Quran in more than one place, that we gave him life again so that they can be thankful.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, what we learned from this as well is when Allah gives you an opportunity and the chance and you let it go by, sometimes out of his mercy, he gives you another chance. He let it go by sometimes you give you another chance, like what did he do? He gave him many chances. But believe me, the day it all boiled down to the cracks and the chances were over, they will.
They will kiss we will come to that Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deeper understanding.
So you find Allah subhanho wa Taala making mention of this in the Quran, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says
that we instructed them from the commandments that under Sabbath, they will not allow.
They were not allowed to work at all, no work on the Sabbath. To this day, the Jews still follow the same commandment. They were not allowed to work in the Sabbath. And Allah says subhana wa Taala voila, Lim tomo, Latina todo min comfy. 70 you know the people who broke that covenant regarding the Sabbath.
they hatched their own plan thinking they would make a fool of us. I've mentioned this a few days back where Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Is it him Heaton? omeo, Maserati mysuru, La Jolla woman is B tuna la Team ganic.
These people on the Sabbath, the fishermen, they used to notice the fish are all coming. The fish are all coming.
when it was the Sunday, the fish oil went away. So Friday, no fish Saturday, like the fish knew that you know what? Today we're not going to be fishing. So let's all go teach these people. So they came and when the fish were teasing these people worked a plan. They wanted to find a loophole around the law of Allah subhanho wa Taala so what did they do? They came on Friday evening and custodian it's Sunday morning they pick them up with all the fish.
So Allah Subhana Allah says, as a punishment panella hongkou Kira de tenkasi in we converted them into H.
La Kumar, the Quran says we converted them into h because they transgressed. Let's pause there for a moment. One ly sin has an effect on the face. While law he sin has an effect on the face when a person engages in sin, and then it has an effect on the face if they repent. They return
If they don't, and they go deeper and deeper, it begins to show on their face. May Allah subhanahu wa taala safeguard us. And this is from the very beginning from the very beginning.
Myself and yourself may or may not be able to recognize it, in fact we won't. But Allah subhanho wa Taala knows
today, may Allah protect us in our offspring, a person who wants to be on a drug, for example.
If he does not save himself, a lot of the times people's hearts are brilliant, good people, but shaytan overtook them with one bad habit which really destroyed them. Sometimes the best of hearts, one bad habit, and they're gone. And if they remove that bad habit, they become once again those with best of hearts.
But you start noticing you know, the face starts caving in you start getting droopy eyes, you start having this problem, that problem and you start you know, people can see it in the face. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us, these are symptoms of sin. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and our offspring and all those May Allah make it easy on this day for those who are on drugs to make a resolution, no more from tonight.
So here Allah subhana wa Jalla says, After that,
as I told you the exact history, the order of history, we don't know precisely but there was a time when these people may be before the incident of the fish, where they became tired of this man and Salwa because for 40 years they had to be in the desert for 40 years and why is it in the desert they were harassing musala salon day in day out one man does this the other one does that we will come to a few more of what they did. So what happened?
They got tired of the mandolin Salwa. So they told Moosa what is called Tamia, masala na Spira.
Almost, how long are we gonna be patient eating the same food every day, day in day out? How can we eat the same food? Yep, we want you to call out to Allah further Alana back up Jelena to be Bocconi. Ha
ha, ha. Why does he have Baba Selena? They said, Oh, Musa, we want our Herbes. Again, we want our cucumbers, again, we want our garlic again, we want our lentils again, and we want our onions again, we want everything we used to have bring them back, and we want it to grow, tell Allah we want that.
So Musa alayhis salam looks at them. And he says, at a steady lunula? Do
you want to substitute the good that you have with that which is not as great? How can you want to take away the divine food that Allah blessed you with? and substitute it with something you used to know in Egypt? So he says, if you are really asking for that, there is a possibility that Allah will return you to Egypt, in a condition that you will once again have all of that and together with it, you will be oppressed again. Would you like to go back and be oppressed? Allahu Akbar. So these were the people they continued asking and they continued saying things, but they were the ones who asked for trouble because they were the ones who refused to go into the city. Had they gone into the city,
they would have had everything.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, thereafter
that there was another way that they had mousseline salatu wa sallam, they troubled him a lot. They started spreading a rumor that this man has a disease, or skin disease or some form of disease, they spoke about that this man, you know, beneath his clothing, he's got a very big sickness. And they they accused him of something very dirty, very rude.
So the rumor began to spread amongst the people. rumors spread. And when rumors spread, yes, they are very irritating, number one, but number two, they will always return to the one who caused them to spread in misery. So we need to know this. Protect our tongues. We can never ever be from amongst those who spread and peddle rumor. Because once we've acted, it's an attempt against us allies watching he knows it will return to haunt you in misery. Allah forgive us. So they started saying in Nevada, now that is a terminology used in the Arabic language to refer to a sickness with the reproductive system. And they say this man is sick. Now there was no ways of clarifying it. That's
why they started saying this man is sick. How are you going to clarify? So Allah subhanho wa Taala decided to clear it for Musa and this is why Allah says in the Quran. Yeah, are you hella Dina Amanullah takuna can Latina
O you who believe Do not be like those who have
Musa alayhis salam with the accusation. So Allah had to clarify him and free him from that particular accusation. So what happened as he was having a bath one day behind the rock, Allah subhanho wa Taala caused that rock to run away with his clothing. So Musa alayhis salam is running behind the rock.
And as he's running a few men who are they, they happen to see him and they say, This man is perfect. Everyone is saying he's sick, he's not sick at all. So now it was clear, and he got out of the rock took his clothing and quickly worried but in the interim, Allah had saved
by doing what clarifying for them, be careful, don't spread rumor. Allah will choose a way of clearing the names of those whom we spread rumor about. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all forms of goodness inshallah, we will continue with the story of Musa alayhis salam tomorrow by the will of Allah until then was Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhana Allah Subhana Coloma vmdks shadow Allah Allah hi lanta Mr. Vito Cohen
