Salam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad Allah Allah Allah He was happy as you may know about.
All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless his entire household, to bless all his companions to bless every single one of us, to grant us every form of goodness to accept from us the fast that we have engaged in throughout the month, and to accept from us the standing in Salatu tarawih in the evenings, for Indeed, it is a great sacrifice. There are a few days left. In fact, tomorrow we will just be reading half Jews and the following day half again. So basically, we have heard the recitation of the entire Quran, it is very important for us to know that the previous
nations have lost their book because they did not give the importance that was necessary to their books. And because of other reasons. When it comes to the Quran, undisputedly there is one version on the whole globe. And the Quran, which is the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala belongs to every single one of us, we have the right to protect it, and we should and we must, and in fact, it is our duty to protect it and to safeguard it. And for this reason, whenever there is a mistake that someone makes while reciting the Quran, it is the right of every single individual to correct that person. In fact, they shouldn't they must, if they don't, they will be guilty of allowing an error
to pass through the Quran, and possibly even letting something that was not correct go by May Allah subhanho wa Taala use us to engage in this great act of worship known as correcting errors. And may Allah make us from amongst those who can do so in the correct manner. This is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say that those who have knowledge and those who have intellect and wisdom should be the ones behind the men. They should be the ones behind the Imam in case something goes wrong, they know what to do. And this is why right at the beginning of Ramadan, we called for those who are Allah and her father to come closer to the front so that they can attend to
errors. But Alhamdulillah we have passed the whole month and for the Lumina law when Emma What a great gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala the half of the who is with me cannot see but at the same time memorizing the Quran, through discs and through learning and repeating that he comes here to fulfill Salatu tarawih next to perfect, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept it from all of us. And to make this a means of our entry into gender and to make us from those who can sacrifice or indeed if we think we're doing a lot, there are others who are doing far more than us. This evening inshallah we will be speaking about what happened to moose Allah is salatu salam, we all know the Prophet Moses
May peace be upon him. He was with his people in what was known as T. T, meaning the land of wandering, it was not even their land. They were because they refuse to enter Jerusalem with him. Allah subhanho wa Taala punished them by saying for 40 years, you will not enter any land and you will just wander on the earth. So every day they used to get up and start walking and they used to try by by the end of the day, they were back where they started. And this lasted for 40 years in the interim, Harun la Salatu was Salam passed away during that time, and death came to Musa alayhis salam as well. During that time. It is reported in a correct authentic narration by Rasulullah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says when the angel of death came to Masada, his salatu salam, and told him it's now your time to go, he gave him one slap, no October.
So the Angel of Death went back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is a savvy, authentic narration. And he says yeah, Allah, you have sent me to take the life away from someone who doesn't want to go. So Allah subhanho wa Taala told him go back and tell him that oh Musa, you will have as much life as when you put your hand on the back of an ox, the number of hairs that are under your hand for each hair we give you one year is that okay? So the Angel of Death went back tells Mussolini salatu salam, Allah says you put your hand on the back of an ox, how many hairs come under that hand of yours? For every hair you have one year, is it okay? So Musa alayhis salam says, and then what will
He says, and then death will come. He says in that case, I'd rather go now Subhan Allah. And from this, we learn. There was someone who asked me a question, can I give my body for science when I die? I want to donate my body to the science lab so that at least they can take some organs and maybe they can benefit
Someone and give them life. I asked them a question, how long is that life going to be? How many years are they going to live after they get your organ into their body? How many years? Another 510? And after that, you see this question is the same question asked by musante. He said I'm so sensible if you are not prepared to die now, when are you going to be prepared to die? Allah says regarding the People of the Book, wallet he then Brasenose Yana
woman and Latina Shaku, you will find some of these people the followers of Musa alayhis salam, you will find some of these people, the people of the book, clinging to life more than anybody else, they will want to cling to life today on the globe. There are people who are paying to freeze their bodies into mortuaries and to wait until a day that science might discover how to give life back to that body. So they pay rental until their money is depleted. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us common sense, we will not be able to run away from it. Let us prepare for the meeting with Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah speaks about the people have been to Israel after they got what they got.
And they went into a tea we found that they worship the some of them or the bulk of them worship the calf. And then when they were instructed to go into the city of Jerusalem and to fight the job, Jabba Bella, those who were the tyrants within Jerusalem, they refuse to go and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, from Mufasa kuno beaucoup
de la liga, hiya collegia to ashes,
or in Amina
was he in
Baku via Fujifilm in Houma in
Malou Allah says, then your hearts became hardened after that. So they became as hard as a rock and even harder than rock, which means when the heart is hardened, it becomes so hard that he does not inclined towards what is right. It does not soften for the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is why one of the worst punishments that can be meted out to a person is alcohol will cause you to have a hard heart when someone comes to you with the words of Allah but they don't shake you. They don't make your hair stand. someone tells you Carl Allahu Allah has said this in the Quran. And you just look away and your heart is as hard as ever. And someone tells you the messenger sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam has said this, your heart is as hard as ever, and you say no ways I'm still going to carry on in my own ways and habits. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us, someone tells you this is the law of sharing regarding inheritance, and we say To hell with it, I know what I have done, I've got my own money.
And someone tells you may Allah safeguard us. This is the law regarding child custody. And this is the law regarding access to children and what have you. We say no, I know what I'm doing. I need to fix these people up because they did me very wrong. And this is the type of statement that is uttered by people that is a hard heart. A hard heart is a sign of the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala musala is salatu salam made the dua against Iran which Allah is Salatu was Salam says De La Puente obey Him. Yama tie up their hearts seal their hearts now because I would like them to see the punishment they will not turn until they see it. So they saw the punishment. So we know we ask Allah
subhanho wa Taala to soften our hearts. A sign of Eman is when the hearts are soften and Allah says the hearts of yours have become hard as rock and even harder than rock because from amongst the rock. We're in Amina ijarah de la Motta jump from the rock, they are those rocks that explode and water gushes out of these rocks. You know what the time of masala is Salatu was Salam. He struck the rock and what happened? springs gushed from that rock. So Allah is saying, Look, you've seen that springs are gushing from the rock. We're in Amina lama shafique fire fujinami muma and there are some if you were to split them you'd find water sometimes you drill through a rock you find water la
Akbar. So Allah says you can still find that softness in the rock. And Allah says there are some rocks that dropped from the top because of the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they engage in acts of worship. They fear Allah subhanho wa Taala yet the hearts of men sometimes are worse than rock.
Allah safeguard us. So these words
are very important that we attend them because these people continued to harass Musa alayhis salam, we did not mention everything, because we don't have the time to go through every single detail. But even when musala is Salatu was Salam passed away, they were still wondering as a punishment for what they had done. What did they do? They worship the calf. They went against the messenger, they defied him, and they did not enter Jerusalem when they were instructed to go in. So Allah says for you now is to remain outside until after Messiah is Salatu was Salam passed away. Now one might ask, why did Musa alayhis salam want to prolong his life? What was the reason? Very simple. He really wanted to
see the victory of Jerusalem. So he wanted to prolong his life so that he could enter the territory that was promised to him by Allah subhanho wa Taala. But when he realized that this is the decree of Allah, he said, we don't want to contest it for your information. When Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went through what is known as El israa, from Makkah to mukaiyama right through tbaytel mcnees. He says, I came across the grave of my brother mouza alayhi salatu was salam, and red hill on the side of the road. If you take me there, I will show it to you now. Subhan Allah, so where exactly is the grave? I don't know. You don't know. It is a sandy red Hill. Muhammad sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam describes it in the hadith of his era. And he says, I went through musala is Salatu was Salam was engaging in Salah
Allah subhanho wa Taala as goodness, that is also an authentic narration from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, after Musa alayhis salam Allah appointed to be a prophet who was the Prophet,
a lot of the aroma of the opinion that it was the young boy who accompanied him when they went to meet him. There was a young boy who was holding the bag with a fish the basket with a lunch. His name was you shall it be known in the English language, Joshua May peace be upon him, may Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant us peace as well.
So this man was also a messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he was the one who Allah subhanho wa Taala permitted to enter by to mark this to enter Jerusalem at the time that Promised Land. And Allah subhanho wa Taala made sure that with you should have been known nobody from amongst those who worship the calf, were in his army, not one of them. So in 40 years, there was a change of generation, the whole generation changed. And now with the new generation, new people who were brought up under the eye of Musa alayhis salam, and under the instruction of the pious, although they were also quite stubborn, and they also had the traits of their fathers and so on, but they
were a new generation who were not underground.
And what we would say Born Free, may Allah Subhana Allah grant us a deeper understanding. So you should have been known prepared the army, and it is reported that he went in with this army, the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, You should have been known in spoke to the sun, because now when they were outside this place, and they had surrounded this place, which was very, very difficult, and there was a short time left for them to have victory, and the sun was about to set. So he tells the sun,
a blessing the sun, that Allah has instructed me, and the law has instructed you, and I am telling you for the instruction that Allah has given me, you will stop at this point for a while and Allah heard it and Allah instructed the sun to stop.
So it is reported and this is again, an authentic narration of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It is reported that that was one day when the sun as it was setting, it just posed exactly how that happened. Only Allah knows and the people who were they know. And then when he achieved victory, the sunset Subhana Allah, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us the trembling of our hearts and to soften our hearts towards him. Thereafter, we have usually been known remained for a while and Allah subhanho wa Taala took him away as well. Vanessa, he remained in that area, but they had a problem. What was the problem? constant was constant fighting two types of fighting, fighting
the external enemy and fighting internally internally because they were 12 groups, so they considered the children of Binyamin slightly inferior. Why? Because he was a stepbrother. If you recall, Jacob had 12 children, two of them were step and the other 10 were all from another mother. So these 10 they became powerful people and so on. When it comes to use of Allah in salatu salam and his brother, Binyamin, they were treated differently. As for Yusuf, he became the king of Egypt, so that was an exception, but as for Binyamin, they did not look at his progeny with that amount of respect, and they were constant skirmishes, as well as the skirmishes with the others. The Jabbar
Bella those who are tyrants, those
People rulers and those who had skirmishes with them with in Jerusalem and around so Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he sent to them some other messengers and inshallah we will get to that but from amongst these who were sent to bento Israel
there is one known as his skill, his skill whether he was actually a newbie of Allah subhanho wa Taala or a very pious man there is difference of opinion but we will say, may Allah peace be upon him.
His story is that at the time of use, I've been known, there was a plague. And there were certain people who tried to flee from the plague. They ran away from that plague and they were in debt 1000s Allah makes mention of this in the Quran. And I'm Tara Illa de una hora
de moi whom Oh, no.
Do you see those who ran away in their 1000s fearing death because there was a plague where they were so they were fearing death and they ran away. Where did they go? The top of the mountain a plateau, and they settled there for a while. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed them, Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed the Angel of Death to cause their death. sakala Houma la moo, moo to Allah told him, all of them should die. They were running away from death, Allah can cause death without anything, nothing. Allah can just instruct the Angel of Death to take the soul out gone. We normally blame something heart attack, car accident, all that is a sign of Mercy of Allah. Allah is
to merciful to take us away suddenly with nothing wrong. So Allah says, hang on, I'll give you something to blame. You can blame something, blame it on a heart attack, blame it on bad eating habits, blaming, blame it on fast driving, blame it on an armed robber. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us good lives. May Allah subhanho wa Taala take us away in a condition that he is pleased with us. So his kill was passing this place and he'd seen a town which seemed like then there was nothing wrong with it. No punishment had overcome it. No one. There was no one there besides some bones, but the destruction How did it come? Everybody died all at once. And as he was watching, Allah says, and
this is in a narration, obviously, this is now a Hebrew narration that Allah subhanho wa Taala asked him, would you like to see these people come back to life and indeed he wanted to see. So Allah Subhana Allah says, some.
fact, Nina, Nancy,
Sheila is CO and then Allah gave them life, and this man was watching. He's seeing the bones come together. He's seeing how thereafter the flesh is coming on the bones and the people were back and they started walking in everything back to their day to day lives as though nothing had happened. And Allah says, Allah is very very bountiful upon people. He bestows them with so many gifts, but many people are not grateful. In gratitude, may Allah make us from those who can appreciate our gifts Do you know to sit and ponder over the gifts of Allah, the positives that Allah has given you to sit and think about him is a great act of worship. Because only through understanding what Allah
has blessed you with? Will you be able to thank Him? May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the gratitude at all times. So that was the Prophet his team. As I say, there is difference of opinion as to whether he was a prophet or a pious man. The same applies to another prophet or a pious man known as it was a very interesting story regarding Hosea.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran,
Allah, Allah, Masha, Allah,
he had in Montana, he passed the town similar to his key but he passed another town all together, and he had seen that it was destroyed. And he asked the question, how is Allah going to resurrect this? Not in that he was defying, but he was inquisitive? He wanted to know how will Allah subhanho wa Taala resurrect this and how will he bring it back to life? So Allah says,
Allah Who me at the end amyn
Allah caused him to die for 100 years, 100 years, this man who was a very pious man in the least, and possibly even a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala this man was caused to die for 100 whole years. Then Allah resurrected him after 100 years, and Allah asked him a question. Carla can la vista, how much did you live? Obviously this is not direct speech with Allah subhanho wa Taala. But through revelation or through inspiration or through the prophet or sorry, through the messenger meaning the angel because Allah subhanho wa Taala did not speak to him directly.
Allah Allah be to Yeoman Oh Baba, he says I've rested only for a day or part of a day. Allah says
Imagine 100 years have gone by. And he says I've only rested for a day or part of a day in our lives. When you do not sleep at night suffering insomnia, you toss and turn and toss and turn, the minute your eye closes in one minute, it's already fragile. But have we seen that? Before you know it, it's fragile. So this is the gift of Allah upon us. Imagine if we had to feel how long it was. May Allah protect us people would be up in about 10 minutes and say, oh, I've slept enough. But it's a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala when you're sleeping, for some reason, nobody can explain it. But Time flies. To this day, nobody can explain sleep, exactly how it happens in the condition of the
soul and so on. No medicine, no science, nothing can explain it. Precisely. Allah subhanho wa Taala alone knows what sleep is all about. And even another issue that nobody can explain is a dream. One man is dreaming of beauty and the gardens of Jenga, and the one right next to him is in hell sweating. But this one cannot feel the fire of the other one and that one cannot drink from the water in the other man's dream. Amazing. And yet they are sleeping right next to each other possibly. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to ponder over these things because this is a sign of the greatness of the hub, the creator. Imagine we can't even explain dreams. We can't
explain them. People might tell you a thing or two but they will never be able to conclusively convince you that this is what it is.
So Allah says we granted this man we resurrection after he was dead for 100 years. We asked him the question. He says I remained for maybe a day or part of a day.
Kala bellabeat Tammy
foveaux enough for me cassava began me medicine. Allah says in fact, you have been for 100 years in that condition. Take a look at your food and your drink. It has not yet become stale. It's as fresh as it was. But we want to show you something else. So he takes a look at his for his drink and his food. It's very fresh. As it was the day he went off the day he was given death by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then Allah says, Now look at something else to prove now. How long you've been sleeping. how long you've been literally dead for
Whoa, whoa, Ella, a medic, one in
10 minutes. Whoa, whoa, in a live army Can you find
Allah says now look at the donkey on the other side. Look at it. It's only bones. It's only bones. But watch how we will bring it back to life. And he's watching. And Allah says look at how we put the bones all coming together. The bones began to come together and look at how we've closed it with flesh and it's closed with flesh once again. That's his donkey. Once again.

Cody, he says, I declare and I know sound knowledge I have now seen with my eye. Allah is definitely able and capable to do anything. Nothing is impossible for Allah
condyloma Usama Mr. Hill for who for who are in de la jolla see everything that people call impossible in the eyes of Allah. It is simple and straightforward. Very easy. So there's nothing impossible for Allah subhanho wa Tada. Now the same man he went back this Hosea, he went back, and his people were now in doubt, who is this man? They had all passed away. There was a new generation. Besides a few, the young were still alive, but many of them did not recognize him. They didn't know who he was. His own children did not recognize him initially.
There was one old lady beyond 100 years old, it is reported 120.
And this again has come to us from the Hebrew narration. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in fact, we are we are told in this narration that they asked her.
Do you know this man known as Isaiah, she says, Yes, he was a pious man, saintly men, so on so forth, and all the doors he made were accepted. But she was blind. They brought him in front. She couldn't see she says But wait, if he is the same, Jose, he was Mr. Java Tao, every day he made was accepted. So tell him to make a dua that my eyesight is restored. So Jose, it makes it to me the eyesight of this woman be restored. It was restored by the gift of Allah Subhana when it was restored. She looks at him and she says Indeed, this is the men. This is the same as a when they went to the children, the children said there is a mark from which we will recognize them.
Father, he had a mark on his body somewhere. And they recognized him and said, Indeed, this is the men. Now he became a hit Subhanallah the Jewish people started saying this is the Son of God. They started saying he is the Son of God. And what happened? By that time they had lost the Torah, because of their fighting and warring and so on and pulling and pushing and shoving and what have you, they lost the Torah. He was the only man who had memorized the Torah. So he re dictated the entire Torah at that stage. Now, Allah says in the Quran, Waka lacinia, hoodoo Rosa uniben, la, waka, Latina, sobre, LA, the Jewish people. On one hand, they were saying Jose is the son of Allah
and the Christians are saying that Jesus is the son of Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us.
Now we see why they say that he was the son of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now to be lamella, safe goddess, what a great blasphemy because of a few miracles that occurred on his hands. And this is also a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now there was something that they used to keep. When Musa alayhis salam was passing away, he gave a certain little box known as a taboo. It was a box, the Ark of the Covenant he had given it to,
you should have been known.
And every time in it were some of the fragments of the tablets upon which the 10 Commandments were written. And a few items inside there. We don't know exactly what there is dispute as to what it was, but for sure, it was a reassurance and a comfort to the people who had it. And when they opened it, they felt very secure. They felt very calm.
And every time they fought, they took that Ark with them. And when they fought, they won the battle whenever the ark was with them.
In it, it had the tablets that were given by Allah subhanho wa Taala, to Musa alayhis salam. But they were fragmented. Some narration say that when he came back, and he wanted to hold his brother Harun from the head and the beard, and he put the covenant down, it fragmented into pieces, but Allah knows exactly how it broke at that particular time they had it in this tablet. So this tablet, at a certain time, it was lost. And how exactly was it lost? It is reported that when there was a war between the people of Ashkelon and the people of Gaza against these people,
the man who is evil the Jewish people, It is reported that at that stage, there was so much disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala disobedience of their leaders disobedience of their prophets, disobedience of those who are the kings from amongst them, that that tabooed disappeared. They blamed these people for stealing. It disappeared and they lost the war, when the king of the time heard it. This again is from the narrations of Ezra Eliot. When the king of the time heard it, he died on the spot. He took the news He died on the spot, and from that time, they did not have a king. They didn't have a king and Allah subhanho wa Taala sent him messages after messages but they
were trying to look for this tablet. Where is the tablet?
Now what happened to it? Did Allah take it up? Only Allah knows. What did those people take it on the Allah knows, but later on, listen to what happened. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Alam Tara Ellen mela immune Bani la isla de Moosa. Do you see the Chiefs?
The Chiefs after musala in salatu wa sallam from amongst Vanessa. They told them to be now the name of the Nabhi What was his name? It is reported that his name was Samuel May peace be upon him. There are different durations of how exactly that name is, somehow, according to some narrations, but in the biblical scriptures, it is. The name is Samuel May Allah subhanahu wa tallas peace be upon him he was one of the prophets sent by Allah to blue is right. And Allah as mentioned in the Quran, without the name but Allah says, is called loony Nabila whom he biathlon American, no cotton fees have been in, they told the Nabhi that please ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, to appoint a king over
us, we now want a king that King had died, we now need a new king. And that King if he comes, we'll be able to fight once again for our land, and we will be able to fight for our place. Look at how they were cursed because they did not enter the land the first time with the Prophet Moses May peace be upon him. Allah says, Now we've kissed them. Now they don't have a land. They don't have a land that belongs to them. And if they had it, it was only for pockets of time.
So now what had happened? Allah subhanho wa Taala says then Abby, who is Samuel May peace be upon him, tells his people
Allah says item in kuchibhotla in como kita. Allah Ducati know he knows how difficult these people were. He says there is a possibility and the chance that you people
If fighting is written for you, you might not even fight. That's what you did to the Prophet Moses before May peace be upon masala salatu wa sallam
that when he instructed you to fight, you didn't fight so maybe if another king comes, you won't fight. So then they responded, one Mallanna alacati Luffy Sabina
the arena, how is it that we are not going to fight when we've been driven out of our land out of our property, us and our own children we've been driven out we need to fight to get it back. Which means the land was taken from them.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says Phelim kuchibhotla hemo kita Allah tala in
Walla mean, later on when we prescribe the war for them. They didn't fight besides just a handful of them. They still refuse to fight. Now Allah is giving us the detail of how they refuse to fight. Let's take a look at it. Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Well call Allah who maybe you mean Allah. Allah can pollute America. Their Prophet told them that Allah has appointed a man as a king over you. His name is Sol Palouse, may peace be upon him. In fact, he was a king. So he was a man who was from Israel in Northanger Abbey balut was a king appointed by Allah subhanho wa Taala through revelation to the prophet Samuel May peace be upon him that this must be the king of the people have been with life. So the king came in. And now when he was appointed by Allah, these people rejected his appointment to start with. What did they say? He's not from our race. number one number two is he's not wealthy. He's not from amongst the people who
are rich. La Cava
Paulo nyako Nola,
Cobain leukemia. No while I'm you
They said how can he be appointed the king over us when he's not even from our tribe? He's from the tribe of Benjamin Binyamin.
See, he's from another one. He's not from the top tribes here. And he doesn't even have that much wealth. How today when we appoint our leaders Take a look. They have to be wealthy because without wealth, you cannot campaign for elections. You have a poor man who wants to campaign. He depends on someone who's gonna dish him money to put up an advert to start with Allah protect us. And then we want to say everything is fair. Everything is okay. Well, where did we get the money from a man on the street? Where is he going to get the money from? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding this is the same system. At the time of these people. They began to say he doesn't
have money, how can he be a leader?
And he is from a different type of people. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala responded for the ignorance of men and for the benefit of every one of us. Allah Subhana Allah Allah says,
in a new LG
t Monica homie, Asha Allah.
Allah has chosen him above you, and he has granted him more than you knowledge and physical strength. So pollut was a strong man and he was very, very knowledgeable. Allah says, We gave him knowledge, we gave him physical strength. And Allah gives the kingdom to whomsoever He wishes because he is the owner. And Allah says, Allah who was here on Allah, Allah has knowledge is definitely broad. Allah encompasses absolutely everything with his knowledge, so he knows what is good for you. Sometimes we have a man who's weak who comes to us and corrects us, he leads us whether it is an Imam or a shave, or somebody who wants to correct us and we think to ourselves,
this man is a beggar. This man is a black man, this man is an orange man, this man is that man, this man does not have money, and so on. Voila, he if the message comes to us, insha Allah even from a beggar on the street for as long as it is a correct and upright message, we need to learn a lesson from this. Allah chose him whoever he was, as poor as he might have been from whatever clan he might have been to come and to stand as a witness against us on the day of Yama, Yama, I told this man that this was right and this was wrong. And this was his reaction. And Allah will question us and question him. So this is something we learn also from here. Never ever take for granted the messages
that get to you. I always say masaba, Columbia, kulu, aka Hadith, whatever got to you was never meant to miss you. That also means whatever message got to your ear was never meant to miss your ear and you are responsible what you did about it.
Hana what Allah says. Then after that they agreed, okay, this is our king and so on. And now they had a problem.
Carlos was faced with a large number of people It is reported that they were almost 80,000 and they were joining his army. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, while I'm Fasano to be geonode Allah, Allah Hama botanico. Bina Ha. He was very intelligent. When he left with his army. He knew that from amongst these they are cowards. There are people who won't follow the instructions of the leader. They want to do their own thing. So he told them, Allah is testing you with a river. It was a hot day they were hungry, they were tested. Allah says do not drink from this river. Farmer Sherry bambino. Allah is a meanie whoever drinks from it, he cannot be in my army.

big and whoever does not drink from it will join me they will be from amongst me and my army. But the only amount you are allowed to drink is if you take a little handful and quickly drink it if you really have to drink the water. Just one handful, not more. So Allah says fishery booming in Cali
the bulk of them ended up drinking because they were just the bulk of them disobeyed they disobeyed the instruction of Allah they disobeyed the instruction of this king as well dilute Sol
and Allah says they were very, very few left now some of the historians make mention of the numbers they say they were 80,000 to start with. How many do you think drink and disobeyed the leader? It is reported that 76,000 disobeyed. How many left for now 4000 are crossing and when they cross there was an army as they crossing this army is watching them the army of Goliath jalloh. This man was a huge man and he was the leader of an army and he was waiting for these people to fight them. And he used to laugh and scoff because they were so big, huge people. And this man in particular was very, very big.
He created an aura as soon as people saw him they were worried and scared. So these 4000 are looking now at dilute and they looking at the others and they saying oh we have a problem.
carlu la tallinna neoma deja vu tower Juno D they said today we're going to lose. Look, we have no we only a few 1000 here. Look at these people. We have no mic to overcome them today.
And the response can

Walla, Walla, Hamas savini these people as they crossed, the ones who believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala correctly.
And the ones who knew and believed that they are going to meet with Allah subhanho wa Taala either way, they said, Don't you know that so many times a small number has overcome a larger number in terms of Army size of the army. Look at the Battle of battle later on. 313 against how many 1000 strong who won Allahu Akbar. So these people it was their history, that small number, who had belief who had a man who were powerful in their conviction, and they had sub sub meaning.
Patience, perseverance, forbearance, these were the winners always in the history. You need patience. Because if you don't have patience, you run away as you're running away. You become a statistic because why they now eliminate one more person and they put it on their numbers. Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, while I'm Barra Zhu Li Jan otava Juno de cannula Bana fri Valentina sadhana, what's happening upon Amana,
a woman kept hearing when it was the beginning of the war. Then it came out
in armor, solid armor, and he started laughing at these people scoffing at them, telling them this the Quran says that Allah subhanho wa Taala is making mention of a DA that is made by the people as this man is laughing and scoffing.
Meaning those who believe they made what was the da robina Africa Allah Subhan Allah pour upon us patience pour upon us patience Africa eyeliner Sabra was a bit of a domino and strengthen our feet make a steadfast make a strong one sooner lol comin Catherine and assist us
Grant us victory over the disbelievers.
So now normally what happened is for the war to start, they needed something to click it, they needed something to start it. It is called a mo barraza. Which means they want a one on one fight, you bring your best, we bring our best we see who kills you. So the morale of the rest of them depends on what happens there. So their best was Goliath, he comes up,
and he's with the sword. And on this side, people are holding back, everyone looking at each other, because they are worried. And the young boy, young boy, Shepherd, he comes along, holding a little stick and holding a sling with five pebbles. And he tells the king, he says I want to go what you want to go forth.
And the discussion issues until they agree this young boy dharwad la Salatu. Salam, David May peace be upon him. This is what the Quran says. He went forth.
And as he went forth Jalla which is laughing the people are laughing everybody is coughing, and they saying, Look, how can you bring forth a youngster like this? Come on, be realistic, bring somebody realistic? What is he going to do? And one Hebrew narration says that they tried to put armor on Deadwood and he didn't want it because it was too heavy for him young boy. He took it all off and says now I want to go. And one Hebrew narration also says that when the king and when I say Hebrew narration I mean, the Israelites led Wyatt, we don't know whether they are true or not. But we will hold them and try and understand them. And that's it. They do not negate what we're trying to say.
So one of those narration says that when this boy was going for the king tells him How can you go for he says, Just yesterday I killed the lion that was trying to devour my sheep. And the other day I killed the bay. He says with my bare hands. Anyway, they let him go. And as he went forth, Jolo is telling him I'm going to swipe with the sword in your head will be flicked off. And this man, young boy, Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem. He puts one of his pebbles and he swings the pebble and he aims at the head of Duluth and it hits him he drops on the ground blood gushing out and he's dead Subhanallah he's dead. Within the split minute. The man is out on the ground lane cold gone. Allah
says Wakata la whoo jalota alone Monica Hickman why lemon,
Dawood David killed Goliath that would kill loot within a split. And Allah says, We granted download so much after that he was a strong, steadfast young boy, he did not disobey the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Imagine he did not drink when it came to that river. He did not disobey the commands of Allah. He was an obedient, worshiping obedient to the Nabhi obedient to the king, and he came forth. There is one narration that is also not an Islamic narration. It is a sort of led wire that says the king decided to get him married to his own daughter.
This King decided to get married to his own daughter, but Tao de la Salatu was Salam. He was his main aim was not that it was to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. And after that, he became very, very popular. And he was made to lead the armies that would la salatu salam, because of his popularity. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of some of the gifts that were given to doubt la salatu salam, one of them, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Allah tada at a nada Buddha min. formula. And we have given they're owed from us some virtue, some grace, some goodness, gifts from Allah, what were the gifts he was engaging in, just be remembering Allah. And suddenly, Allah ordered and instructed
the creation around him to engage in test be with him.
So Allah says, Yeah, Jeeva Louie be
Tyra Oh, birds are mountains we want you to also engage in just be together with Darwin. When he invokes you invoke la voce. Imagine the power that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave you salatu salam. In another verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is Allah Maya colonna O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam bear patients regarding the rumors that they are spreading about you just bear patients regarding what they are saying. What kurabe danada who?
And remember our worshiper Dawood, whom we had granted a lot. Allah subhanho wa Taala says he was off to returning, he know who he used to have seek forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in
use a big big one.
Allah says, We instructed the mountains as well as the birds to be under the authority of God whenever he engaged in tests be engaged in just being together with him, and they will all at his literally beck and call, whatever he instructed them they did that would allow him salatu salam, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says washa daddy Nam oka
Qaeda, we strengthened his kingdom. We made him a king now that a Salam was an abbey and the king. He was not just a king and he was not just an abbey. He was a righteous man. Those pieces of information that are in the Old Testament regarding Sins of the Prophet David and the King David, they are unauthentic we as Muslims believe that the man was a powerful man, very noble slave of the Almighty. He did not engage in the sin. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. In fact, some of those narrations have seeped into some of our books. Let us be wary of that. None of the messengers chosen by Allah subhanho wa Taala had a bad track record none of them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala
safeguard us from narrations that come to us from elsewhere. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says here
