Which Prophet faced frown? I think that's an easy one. We're gonna note tonight, the Sharla. It's not just about knowing the answer. It's about also answering correctly.
Okay, Miss Miller.
Prophet Musa alayhis salam and we're going to see a very remarkable story and how we can benefit from that today. So it looks like
Aquila. All right, one more question sorry. Which prayer can fulfill charity on every part of the body. If you do this prayer, it's like you've given Sadhak on every joint in the body.
It's such a an important but neglected prayer. Unfortunately.
If you pray this prayer, it's as if you've given charity on every joint
Salah to Doha. And so lots of Doha is prayed 15 minutes after sunrise. So let's say sunrise is at 615 or 630, you can pray and then up until around 1015 minutes before the whole, very important press a lot of Doha and you can just try to rock out it can pray two rakaat or four or six you can pray in lots of tours. And it's as if you've given charity on every one of the body how many joints in the body over 360 So who can give $360 Every day Subhan Allah very hard imagine every day well you can do that by praying to the consulate to her

soldiers that is
okay, let's now continue with the next agenda item and that is the story of Musa alayhis salam.
Bismillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while early he also have behaved woman well.
Baby in the water, we're going to be taking this origin story of Musa alayhis salam and guess what boys and girls? This story?
Hollywood copied it. That's right, Hollywood, ripped off the story of Musa alayhis salam just like they've taken many ideas or many stories from the Quran and Sunnah and made them into big budget movies. I'm sure you've all heard of Kung Fu Panda to
watch Kung Fu Panda to about a que es a country Panda, of course. But there's a bad guy like many stories have and the bad guy in Kung Fu Panda too was he knows the answer. You can yell at the screen. Although I can't hear you. I was the bad guy, Kung Fu Panda to the peacock. I'm sure you all know, the peacock. Peacock has a nightmare. And in this nightmare, he sees an animal that's black and white. And what's an animal that's black and white boys and girls, once again, yell it out the screen.
If you're in Australia, probably say magpie. Well, it's a it's a panda. And so he had a dream that a Panda was going to take his kingdom. So what does he do the peacock and Kung Fu Panda to send out. He sold his his army, not to take people in for not wearing masks, but to go and destroy and kill all the baby panda Subhanallah Allahu Akbar. And so there's a mother panda who takes baby panda puts it in the baskets and puts it in the River Center to safety. This baby panda grows up and becomes the hero of the story that Kung Fu Panda and brings down the peacock. You're probably thinking, wow, that's so original. Right? What did they come up with that? Well, they copied the story of which
Prophet Musa Ali Salam. So it wasn't original. They took a Quranic story and made it into a big budget movie and what are we doing? We're eating our popcorn and sometimes even throwing at the screen saying uncle, Uncle, give us another one. And they did give us another one. They gave us Kung Fu Panda three, and fell and they gave us more they even gave us a series of seen on TV, the Kung Fu what's it called?
Kung Fu Panda. It's called panda series. But the point is boys and girls that we have the original stories, and we're going to see soon. I'm going to give you a presentation that before the Avengers, we had the messengers and before Captain America was the one who
for over 100 years, okay, and he survived the water. Okay, we had no Haile Selassie who survived the larger flood larger water or larger volume of water and he lived for over 900 50s Before the Wolverine, the one that could cure himself instantly we had a silent Salam, you could cure others instantly, you can do one better. Before add man, the one who can enlarge to 30 meters tall we had Adam Ali Salam who was 30 meters tall in Jannah. That's how he was created. It didn't need a fancy device didn't need something to make him bigger. Who was created that way Allahu Akbar. And we can go on and on all these examples before Aquaman the one who can communicate with sea creatures, there
was Solomon who can communicate with all creatures and before the Superman, the one who could fly in the air there was still a man and he really could fly Allah azza wa jal gave him control of the wind and that could take him up and take him wherever he wanted. For Sahana Allahu Allah says Allah gave him control over Rehana de he's the wind. Imagine that you now want to go here. I want to go there. Get me out of this country. I'm sick of lockdown. Let's go. Take me actually there's lockdown in other countries as well. Let's go to Mars. So one of the students probably wishes he was there. But the point is boys and girls that before all of these superheroes in these movies Subhanallah we have
the best of stories in the Quran. And you know if I told you Did you see the Avengers movie? Mr. Misery Come on. That's like 2019 20 That's old news are gonna the first Avengers. Like wow, that's that's ancient. You're living with the dinosaurs. Mr. Big that's 10 years ago. What if I said, have you seen the first Star Wars movie or the first Rocky movie? Like, oh my God, what's this? Mr. B's replays? I don't know if COVID has affected you? What if I said, what about this book from the 1950s? What if I said, there's you know, let's, let's do a study on Shakespeare's works. And I come on, please give me something relevant, that's too old. You know, what's remarkable and amazing is
that the Quran is older than those in terms of the date. But it's even more relevant today. Over 1400 years ago, yet, we're still talking about it now. The 2021 and beyond up until the Day of Judgment, the Quran never gets old. We said it was 1400 years old, but it never gets old. Just like gold. And gold. increases in value becomes more valuable over time, not like money, money decreases, you know, you have $1 And now you can't get much but ask my mom or Baba, what did $1 get you? Whenever you're at when our kids get you a lot I'm sure you can. I'm sure you can remember the parents. So the point is boys and girls before we start the story that the stories of the Quran we
can use them now and we can use them later on. We're gonna see Subhanallah even with COVID and locked down all the craziness that's happening. There's a lot we can learn from the Quran and the Sunnah.
So I'm sharing, I'm sharing the screen with you, you should be able to see it now in sha Allah Bismillah.
Musa alayhis salam,
there was a man by the name of round
for Allah was a tyrannical leader,
a very bad man.
This man wanted to kill half of society and know if you're thinking it's then also wasn't him. It was for now. And for our own had a nightmare. Frown had a nightmare. And that nightmare was
he saw a fire coming out from beta macness, which is Palestine and it made its way to Jerusalem,
all the way, way from Jerusalem all the way to Egypt, where he lives, and it destroyed all the houses along the way, leaving the houses of bento Israel of the Muslims. So he woke up and he didn't say Bismillah R Rahman Rahim right because he thinks he's ALLAH. So he probably woke up and he said, Allah, you know, for Allah Akbar, because he thinks he's Allah. And he told the soldiers go and find someone who can tell me the meaning of the stream.
They didn't know. They went to one magician, they brought him in. What does this dream mean? I don't know. If he said I don't like his answer. Another magician came in. What does this mean? He gave me some answer. He wasn't happy with Off with his head as well. And he probably clunked two of the heads together. And he says Go get me a proper magician Yola. And so they get a sorcerer who knew how to interpret and explain dreams. And he said, the frown he said, your dream means that there's a man. There's going to come a man from the Muslims from Israel. And when we say by no Israel, boys and girls, it means the children of Jacobo Muslim doesn't mean Israel today. They said a man from
battle Israel from the Muslim
Somebody is going to take over your kingdom one day. So now for our own even though he's always angry, right around, wakes up angry, he sleeps angry, he eats angry when he's showering. He's angry, even when he's happy, he's angry. Now he's even more angrier. He says, go and destroy all the houses have been destroyed of the Muslims. So he sends out his soldiers, his army to kick down the doors of the Muslims. They barged in, if they found a boy from Ben Israel that will take him and they will execute him Subhanallah you can imagine how terrifying this was.
Who was then the mother of Musa alayhis salam and she had bade Musa as you can see on your screen baby Musa was with her can imagine you he the ADF in your street, you hear the police you think oh man, they they're grabbing someone because his mask fell off her LD
the grabbing another person and so she's worried she's peeking through the blinds and she can see them kicking down doors.
And now Musa Halle Salam because he's a baby he looks a mama because mama is scared what happens to him he becomes scared. In a babies have this amazing ability to to know and feel what the expert with the parents are feeling and experiencing. So he begins to cry, because he says Mom was scared. He's scared. And this is a lesson for us parents that if we if we sharing these emotions in the home, especially with lockdown, all that's happening, it's going to affect our kids. Let's try to put a positive face on at all times and have these COVID lockdown conversations away from them. So he begins to cry.
He begins to cry. Now she's worried. She's worried what do I do? Because now what's going to happen? They hear a baby crying These soldiers are going to come and kick the door down. Right? And so if they're going to kick the door down and find baby Musa that's it, it's all over him. So she's worried she's panicking. What do I do?
Allah has ever done and inspired her.
He told her what to do how she just knew in her heart. Allah says Well, hey, in a little Mimosa and all day, we inspire the mother of Musa to give him milk. They might say but Mr. Busy Wouldn't she know to do that if a baby's crying mothers usually know that's true, but we're not when a person's panicking and worried. They're not sure what to do. Sometimes simple things become hard. become difficult when you're panicking. You don't know what to do sometimes. Because you know when a baby's panicking WHAT DO YOU WILL crying What do you see? You know, check the nappies or maybe something to eat. You should she was panicking. She was nervous.
Allah said Give him milk.
And you know when you give a baby milk, what do you do he nothing except
butter you can eat. Now it's all just gonna heat up.
So the soldiers did not kick down her door and they just passed by. They just passed by Al Hamdulillah baby Musa. And the mother Musa are both keepsafe Allah azza wa jal says for the 50 Ali nephew fee for your child, because what's gonna happen? I mean, Musa is not going to stay quiet forever. Babies need to eat constantly. If you've got a baby brother or sister maybe to use on the eating constantly or even younger constantly in a baby's car like bodybuilders babies and bodybuilders they every two hours, is there a resemblance Allahu Allah, okay, but always eating and so Allah says that 50 Allah He when you get scared again when these gods come back, Alka he phillium
Throw him or put him in the river Subhan Allah
so if you're scared of Musa put him in danger,
teaching us posing as the sometimes the commands of Allah don't always make sense to us. But if Allah said if Rasulullah said it, it's the truth. We have to trust Allah, we have to trust your Salah and do it. Even if we're scared. Allah Allah, Allah azza wa jal is teaching us here. Sometimes, doing the right thing is scary. Sometimes telling a responsible adult or a teacher, that something or someone is doing something wrong. It's a scary experience. You don't want to be called a snitch. You want people to say you're a double doing the right thing. Sometimes it's hard, but it's always rewardable and Allah azza wa jal is teaching us even if we're scared, we still do it.
Even if it's scary, because Allah azza wa jal then will remove our fears. And that's why when Musa grows up later on, and Allah tells him to throw his stick and it turns into a snake,
and he gets scared, he runs away he might have seen a snake. Imagine seeing a dead snake. Imagine right now look to the floor. And imagine you see a dead snake on your carpet or on your rug. You will break the record for high jump a dead snake will freak you out. Imagine seeing a real life snake Musa ran. He ran he was scared. Allah says after baleia Musa come back, could her well at the horse take it don't be afraid. If someone's afraid if you're afraid, or let's just say someone scared
something and you want them to do the right thing. Let's just say there's a fire or now the biller, you say, calm down,
fire exit is that way, right? You say calm down and then you tell them what to do. In that order, calm down, give them the command Allah switch to Allah didn't say, calm down, do the right thing. Allah azza wa jal said,
do the right thing, then come down Hoda, while at the core of teaching exposing us when we're scared, we do the right thing, then Allah will remove the fees from us. So Allah said, If you fee for him,
put him in the river. Subhan Allah
put him in the river. And she did that. She trusted that Allah. And that's what we need to do in these times, where things are tough. We need to put our trust in Allah. And no matter how bad something may seem,
doing the right thing, Allah azza wa jal will find a way up for us. You can imagine how difficult this is for a mother to do.
Would you the mothers let your child go in a river by themselves? Of course not. It's hard. We sometimes freak out. If we lose our children in a shopping center where there's people around imagine a river. No one around could be even crocodiles. And the Nile River for those who know something about it. It's extremely large, extremely deep, even a confident adult swimmer can drowning. And when I went to Egypt, I saw the Nile River. And it was you know, jumping in that which was quite, I wouldn't do it. It's quite scary, extremely wide, extremely deep. And so she had to do that. Subhanallah
so she put more Sally Salam in this water, and it took him and that's something extremely difficult for a mother.
You know, sometimes just, you know, when I had a baby girl, I remember the first time I had to put it in the bathtub to bath her. And you know, my wife, she said, would make sure you don't fill up the bathtub. It's scary we feel for our children, and she put him in the river because Allah said so.
So what happened after that?
Allah azza wa jal tells us that the mother of Musa didn't sit there feeling sorry for herself. Allah azza wa jal said in candidly to be dB, she almost gave him up. The mother Musa almost ran out and said, That's my son, that's my son. But Allah has really kept her firm. In other words, sometimes when something bad happens, we get thought to do the wrong thing. But if we patient and we do the right thing, Allah will find a way out for us from that solution or from that problem rather. So she told her daughter which is the sister of Mo Salah Salem to see the quality of the posse Allah said she told Musa sister Follow him. And what does she do? And his sister as you can see there on the
screen, choose young girl maybe in a 910 11 years old, she runs out. She doesn't ask mama 100 questions, Mama but why can I finish this game on Roblox? Oh, can I can I get robux if I do this? Or do I have to do it? Now how about you tell my brother is something that kids often ask when Mama or Baba tells him to do something? Why May? She immediately does it? No questions asked.
So she follows her baby brother as she realizes, okay, of course the baby is taken all the way and the baby ends up were at the castle of frown. So Paula, imagine that the baby ends up at the castle of round the very person that the mother of Musa was trying to avoid. What does that teach us boys and girls, that sometimes you don't always get what you want, but you get what you need. Sometimes Allah doesn't give you what you want, but Allah will give you what you need. Moses mother didn't want Musa to be with her down. But little did she know this was better for her. We don't want to be in lockdown. We don't want to be in the state where Coronavirus and people are getting sick. We
don't want it. But sometimes Allah azza wa jal sent a problem our way. And when we think things are falling apart, they really falling into place. We just have to be patient and do the right thing. And we will see the results later. Maybe we won't see it now. But we will see it later.
So the basket ends up at the castle of frown you know that you can imagine the gods that come out or what's this? Is it a bomb? But isn't that bombs back there? They thought maybe someone's trying to harm Pharaoh grab it. They open it up to Kid to Kid and he looks like he's from the Muslim Look at him. Different color skin, different type of hair, get him and then who's on the balcony looking as here as here was a righteous good woman. She was the wife of frown. She sees the baby. She comes down. I don't know. What are you doing? Ma'am? We have orders to kill this kid. Excuse me. She says Who do you think you're talking to? I'm the queen who gave me this. Oh
Are your husband King Pharaoh? Okay otherwise known as King shaytaan King Pharaoh gave us his order. Well, I don't see King Pharaoh around. I'm second in charge. So I'll take the baby. Thank you. Speaking of babies who we have so so is joining us. Do you like that baby? Yeah. Is this gonna? Oh, take the baby. Thank you.
Ma'am, excuse me. Here you go. Sure she takes the baby and she keeps baby Musa in safe there. She doesn't know. She doesn't know that he's baby Musa that he's going to be a prophet. He didn't come with a nametag when a baby's born Liverpool hospital they put a little tag on the cute ankle that says you know baby of Mr. vizury doesn't know name tag here and they gave him the name of MRSA. They gave him Subhanallah because he didn't come with the tag didn't come with the name in our first day kindergarten or you want having a name on your chest they didn't have a name they gave him the name
and the word more sir from Moshe Moshe back then basically meant more from in Arabic you say my which is water in Arabic for sitemap and SHA from shape. Shape in Arabic means something and in slang, they say sheep the sheep right. So chef will might and other way around Moshe. In other words, Sheikh filma something in the water. That was his name. Something in the Water. Allahu Akbar. So she takes his babies doesn't have a kid that she takes him to frown. Look, have you but I'll be looking at this baby for our own is freaking out what? Who is this? Look? It's a baby. And of course frown what was he doing two baby boys from Australian wasn't too happy he was murdering them.
As he was smart, how do you convince frown?
And this is something that women would know how do you convince your husband of something and kids? How do you convince Baba or mama of something? Firstly, get him in a good mood. She doesn't say let's keep him as a son. Okay. She says, oh look, firstly, don't kill him. Don't kill him. She showed frown his face. Allah says in the Quran, while kinda like him habita Mini. We put the love of Musa in the hearts of people. When someone saw Musa let's say they fell in love. She said don't kill him. But he doesn't say anything. She says oh, maybe we can adopt him. We can use the help for others and say anything. He went oh gaga over Musa and then she says Oh no. Well then how about we
take him as our own child? Fran doesn't say anything. He went gaga over him. He's like, Okay, any agreed. So boys and girls if you want to come into mama Ababa to get you those robux firstly, get them in a good mood, do the right thing. And then maybe they'll say yes, okay, well, maybe not. Who knows?
Now frown? Yeah, he agreed, but he wasn't too happy. Why? Because baby Musa is crying. Why is he crying boys and girls? Of course he's not. Mom was not around, but he got hungry. And he wanted milk. And Allah azza wa jal mentions in sort of Kasasa he wouldn't accept anyone's milk except Mama's milk. No one's milk was good enough for him. Subhanallah you know some people they have to have soy milk or organic milk or almond milk and rocky please Have you been I mean locked down? I don't have the milk that you want. Can you just drink this coffee? Or the Dalek? Oh, he wouldn't drink anyone's milk but mom was milk Subhanallah and so for him was getting really upset and
agitated because there's a baby in his castle wouldn't be quiet you know dislike now in lockdown I'm trying to do work I'm trying to give him a zoom lesson and the kids are going off like oh my gosh, okay. can't concentrate so frown even though he's angry as usual. Now he's angry on steroids that is it for our he's gonna He's gonna be off his raucous it's gonna lose it so far only staring thinking of gosh, what am I going to do to this kid after giving the biggest Utley no I can't do that. See is around okay. You know I just have to wait when SE is not around. I can't do that because she will know okay, he was scared of his wife basically. Okay, like many men today so the system is good
okay. You go out and find a woman who's gonna give this boy some milk go find breastfeeding women in a probably clunks their heads together a lot or
you numbskulls go find me some women. So he sends out the soldiers to go and find women who will breastfeed Musa Ali Salam.
Now, in the meanwhile, Moses sister, she's looking for him as you couldn't catch the baby. Her baby brother when he went in the river she couldn't catch. She's our she's in the marketplace asking people have you seen the baby boy Have you seen this boy it looks like this and
Soon later, these guards come to the same marketplace in the asking woman,
the asking woman, and she sees that as she gets closer, she gets closer and she hears the conversation and the asking women are looking for someone to breastfeed this boy, and then she sees baby more So there she sees baby also, because my brother, she goes over to them. She speaks to them. She says, I hear that you're looking for someone who can breastfeed this baby. And the guys like Gaia, what do you what do you know? Oh, I know something. She says Pilate. Hello, do look Milan debate. Can I tell you about a house a family? Yet? Faloona hula calm that will look after him. They'll breastfeed him. Home level nursing home and they're good people they got a good reputation
that I'm breached the health order. They do the right thing. Okay, let me tell you about this family. So this guy is probably you know, who was getting suspicious like how do you know? Like I just heard about them. And when he realized that maybe this this girl can find him a family that can breastfeed you know his eyes turned into dollar signs Ching thinking in our for our is going to pay me big time for finding a woman to breastfeed this, this baby boy. So she says you go down you know canopy Road, end up on the M five you get off on the first exit Bankstown you go down Stasi street and you end up at Cinna life academy or you end up there? The house is like Okay, let's go. So this
was a very smart girl. As we said she's maybe 910 11 Subhanallah and she did the right thing. Her mom didn't have to give her 101 instructions. Sometimes kids you tell them one thing
Habibi when Mama Ababa talking. Remember the five L's of listening? Listen with your ears. look with your eyes.
Legs down that walk around, hands in your lap. And what was the last ill?
Okay, I forgot. Okay, I didn't listen. Okay, so the five mils of listening, it'll come to me Sharla Is it the lips zipped the lips. I was talking to you. The lips there and you look at the person. She paid attention. This is how we should be yes. Sometimes you miss a thing or two. When someone's talking. Look at them. Don't talk don't move around.
The gods come to whose house they come to the house of more says mother that come to Moses house. You can imagine no more says Mum. She's inside. She's panicking. She sent her her daughter your Allah sent her out. She hasn't come back.
Where is she? She is past curfew. What's going on? She gets a knock on the door.
She opens the door.
She sees the gods. She looks. She says the daughter and the daughter. She's trying to not be suspicious. She doesn't want to say mama. Because she says that they're gonna say you told me you don't know this family. And so she's looking at her mom, maybe even doing something with her eyes and our heads. You know, like don't say anything. The gods are there. Like, excuse me, lady. We're here to talk to you.
She sees as here. As she has. They're the queen. And who knows you say the queen is holding baby Musa. She is now doesn't know whether to laugh or cry. She just thought a moment ago that her son had died is an emotional roller coaster. What does she do?
So the guard says woman we want you to breastfeed this baby give him some milk. Moses mommy schedules and I want to do maybe if she says yes. And Musa takes the milk. Maybe they realize that she is the mother and kill her so wasn't sure what to do? Does she say yes. You say no. If she says no, then they'll probably kill her as well. And she doesn't know she's hesitating. Give him milk, give him milk. She takes maybe more sessions. Okay. She takes the baby. She puts baby Musa to her breast and he begins to drink milk. And so the god it doesn't say Allahu Akbar, of course, who doesn't believe in Allah? He probably said frown Akbar, for Allah Akbar. Right? He's like, yes, he's
happy. And she's like, what's going on? Are they going to kill me now they're going to take my boy from me. And he said, Woman we are going to offer you a job to breastfeed this child. They took her back to the castle of frown. They didn't know she's the mother of Musa. She is getting paid to feed her own child. And they said we're going to pay you we're going to look after you. We're going to look after your this
Boy, and we're going to give him whatever he needs and we're going to give you whatever you need Subhan Allah. Look how the story of Musa Ali Salam happened when he was young baby, Allah reunited, Musa with his mother. Do you know why boys and girls? Because you trusted Allah. Plain and simple? That's the answer. She didn't understand in the beginning, but she put a trust in Allah. Like with what's happening today. Sometimes we may not understand what's happening. But we trust in Allah and we do the right thing. Notice for our
he didn't disappear immediately, right? Couldn't Allah have destroyed and removed from from the start? Allah could have done that.
But Allah is teaching us something that problems
there for a reason. Sometimes, sometimes bad things happen to teach us things about our own selves. Sometimes problems happen to teach us things about ourselves. So we can grow. Just like when you play a game, maybe Super Mario Brothers, bad things happen. You know, Bowser takes Princess Peach. And so you got to then go through the levels and beat up the bad guys and you're facing problems and trials and tests and you're going from one level to another but as you as you're going from each level from World One world to to world style, whatever those worlds are, you're getting better, you're improving, you're getting power ups, you're building your character. And that's what tests do
to us boys and girls, that when things are hard, it's building us as Muslims building us as people, and we become better we become stronger and we learned so much. So this is teaching us boys and girls to trust Allah azza wa jal to plan and that not always things will be easy, but when we make dua, Allah azza wa jal will make us survive that problem in O'Brien Minister into the fire, the fire didn't go.
When Jonas Ali Salam was thrown into the whale, the whale didn't disappear. When Musa Ali Salam faced around in the Red Sea, the Red Sea didn't open up straightaway and founded and disappear. And when a yo Bala salaam got sick, the sickness stayed with him. It didn't go either. And as we said, because sometimes problems are meant to stay to teach us something. And when we make drought, drought doesn't make things go away straightaway.
Yeah, baby. But sometimes the drought what it does do is it gives you that strength gives you the power to survive and move on. Hope you enjoyed baby in the river, the origin story of Musa alayhis salam.

An act of worship is anything Allah loves anything else, anything that's good and noble.

So healthy and halal, that sunnah that's also an act of worship and even studying even seeking knowledge sometimes

Assalamualaikum boys and girls and families but to continue our SLA family night hope you enjoying yourselves. I know it's also easier, masha Allah keep coming back for more.
So what you see on your screen is some of our online learning some life, as even schools are doing at the moment. So life Academy is not a school for those who are those who are thinking, or who might be assuming that but rather, we are like a homeschool group. So for those who do homeschooling, they come to us for particular programs, excursions events, we also teach the key learning areas from English, math, science, PHP, etc. And what we do is we actually combined them, we combined them. And that's how life is right. You don't walk outside and you see Welcome to English land, and welcome to math Ville, but we put them all together as much as possible. And we
even we teach Islam within the curriculum as well, because as Muslims, we don't separate our deen
from dunya. And we also have competitions, we also do Tafseer for kids,
as you can see there
from certain Fatiha to sort of the nurse, and to Zama.
We did Starry Night, as you can see, and we're going to also take the book now. So this is all part of what we do at Sun Life Academy. And something also special that we do, which you guys can get involved in
not just the kids teaching kids. But we also have students stage two and three, and others, authoring their own books and publishing them on Amazon and on our website. So if you are a kid and you love to write,
then you can send us your story and we will put it on our website inshallah. So if you go to Sunlife academy.com.au, forward slash Accra, you can see some of the books that are stage two or three students have already written. And among them is Abdullah said he joined us tonight. Sorry, it's a little noisier with sauces, sauces, Texas you just won these textures, okay for something she did see here, but but you can go play with her over there. So if you have a story that you'd like to share, you can send that to us. And we can publish it as well as some of our students actually publish their books on Amazon, believe it or not, and that's what we're doing at Sun Life at the
moment, we stage two and three, which is from year three to year six. They are writing their own books and inshallah we will be publishing them. So if you're a kid, you can also be your own author. And the best way to become a writer is to write a prophet muhammad sallallahu sallam said that if you practice patience, Allah will make you patient. Sorry, when
the Prophet Muhammad said that if you practice patients alone make you patient. And that teaches us that if you practice something, you become better at it. Think of the first time you rode a bike probably fell off. And that's normal, the first time you swam, you probably sank to the bottom. So the more you practice it, the more you progressed. And so the one of the best ways to become a writer is to just keep writing even though it's hard. I know writing sometimes very difficult, but just write and write and write. And with guidance from your parents and teachers, you will inshallah improve over time. It's not about being perfect, because perfection is for Allah only. But it's
about making small changes every day, and over time until you get better. And that's why my book, my own book, which I'm going to start sharing with you tonight, I changed that. I added things to it, I made it better. And that teaches us boys and girls that sometimes teaches us that only Allah is perfect and wouldn't have to be as long as we're trying. Do your best. That's what Allah worries about. long as you do your best.
Okay, we're about to begin in sha Allah there's a sea monster in my bathtub
as soon a life Academy story brought to you by Mohammed visually I'm not sure if you heard of him or this guy put up a hotdog gave me a weird look like that. Come on. That's a dad joke. Well I'm a dad
there's a scene
there's a scene once that in my basket but the Bismillah
introducing young Amis scared No that's not me. That's Zack main character. Introducing me now still scared poor guy.
The same wants to himself. Differently does he? Maybe he is my bully big sister. You probably thinking oh gosh, that's me. Or my bully Big Brother.
Introducing the helpful life guard. My protective mum which is a good thing by the way mama wants to protect you. And your man OCE ating dad probably the dad love man OSHA. No I do. Introducing forgetful data. You gotta love her.
My rubber ducky
and we will start sure so
I placed my feet into the dark cold water. But before I could cry out for help. It was too late. The sea monster
had taken hold of my leg
okay, didn't really it was just my rubber ducky as I stepped into the bathtub. There was never a sea monster. That's just my wild imagination. Again. Assalamu alaikum I'm Zack. And believe it or not, I'm afraid of the water. Yes. Even the water in my own tub
I wasn't always like this. You know? When I was younger. I just loved going to the beach until my bully big sister played a prank on me.
Hey, Zack want to play a game? She asked. Nikoli Yay. I began jumping up and down and clapping my hands out of excitement. Okay, close your eyes. My sister instructed. I did so obediently. But little did I know. I was in for a shock. The small waves feel cool as they splashed on my feet. And then it happened. Hmm. I said confused as I removed my sister's hands away from my eyes.
Was that swimming around my ankle? It took me a second to realize what had happened. Ah, it was a blue bottle and blue bottles thing. Can you believe my bully big sister made me walk right into a trap. I strict in panic as the Blue Bottle wrapped its icky string like tentacles around my foot. Hello. My hybrid scream was so loud. The lifeguard fell off his chair. I ran onto the sand frantically waving my my arms with the blue bottle hanging off me.
The lifeguard rushed over with the red bucket and stopped me. Whoa, whoa, hold on the kiddo. It's okay, he said with a warm smile as he rubbed my head and shoulders. I see this all the time. You're going to be fine. As he unwrapped the blue bottle. Sorry, one moment.
As he unwrapped the blue bottle from my foot. I could see red bubbling marks with tentacles had been my foot throbbed in pain. The lifeguard then poured the water from the bucket over this thing. To my surprise, the water was quite warm. Doesn't that feel better kiddo as the lifeguard with that warm smile? It did. So if you ever get bitten by a blue bottle boys and girls, you actually put warm water on it actually happened to me as a kid Believe it or not.
Before I knew it, I was in the car eating my favorite ice cream so it's got the upside for me. And oh me. My mom told my sister of good for what she
Did I wasn't sure what I enjoyed more the ice cream? Oh my bully big sister getting into trouble.
I still can't believe she made me walk right into a blue bottle trap. Ever since then I've been terrified of the water. I always think something bigger and scarier will get me this time. I can't help it. I get goose bumps up and down my spine just thinking about it.
Perhaps that's what my favorite superhero is. Aquaman You know that guy who lives underwater talks to sea animals and fight bad guys and stuff. Yeah, him. I'm sure he's never been scared of a sea monster before. He's probably for an army of sea monsters all by himself.
Maybe my dad took me to swimming lessons to help me overcome my fear. But I just couldn't do it. Even bought me an Aquaman swimming costume and took me to the same beach. I was done. Thinking it will help. It did until I stepped on slimy seaweed. Yikes. I jumped so high. I think I broke the record for high jump was the other lifeguard fell off his chair must have must have quit after that.
I thought I would never be able to swim until I heard the Friday hook down and forget. It started like every other week. Come into the hole. Take off your shoes. Sit down zip your lips, until
the opening words of the speaker shook me at my core and took me by surprise. The unsinkable ship. The undriveable profit, no highlight slam. My head immediately shut up and my slouch back was no more. I stared wide eyed as the speaker explained the story of profit. No Hala he Salam. I never thought of him that way before they come to think of it is pretty awesome.
Allah sent a huge flood to destroy all evil on earth. But no water could drown nor Hala his salaam the speaker continued with excitement. Cool. That was kind of like a super miracle. I thought to myself.
The speaker went on to explain how no Haile Salam was super smart at building tools. He built the one and only ark with the help of Allah of course, this was a huge unsinkable ship.
Could you imagine how difficult that was to make? Trust me with no data? My grandma bought me a Lego chips for eight ones. There was one problem was for 16 year olds. Gosh, I guess she forgot my age again. But it's okay. I still love her. As we all do, we got to love data. Even though the Lego set was for 16 years plus I thought to myself this will be easy breezy lemon squeezy. But boy, was I wrong. After three days of building I had enough. There were too many pieces. Time to give up and throw in the towel. Yeah, that's what we always do. Right? When things are hard. We give up. She's in the way of a true Muslim. I was about to give up. But I'd be able to let me be offered to help Al
Hamdulillah the next day it was finally done. How amazing was Prophet Nora Halley's Salam I struggled building a toy Lego ship for crying out loud yet he built a real life gigantic one that hotbar made me realize one thing
with Allah's help and continuous effort, anything is possible. Boys and girls sometimes life is tough. Sometimes you struggle sometimes you don't know sometimes you can't do it. They say I can't do it so I can't do it yet. Say I'd say I'd have no say I don't know yet. Everything is hard in the beginning but if you give up you'll never learn anything if you give up you'll never achieve anything
it's either give up or give up
or give up or give up and I know you boys and girls you guys are strong you're not the people the type of people who give up so if you're not gonna give up you're gonna get up inshallah
you know no one who falls over stays on the floor forever true we have a fallen over as they are that's the I'm going to sleep here I'm going to do all my lessons here on Zoom. I'm not going to get up from this position ever again. Mama bring me my breakfast here on the floor. Nana no one's gonna do that. So if just like you've when you fall over you stand up. Likewise, when we when we fall over in life when things are hard when things get difficult. We don't stay down forever. We get up.
So did Zack. Before going to bed that night? I made to heart and ask Allah to help me overcome my fears. I just knew that alo helped me one day. I close my eyes and slept with a smile on my face. Until wake up Apple boy. My sister's loud annoying voice rang in my ears. We need an alarm clock when you have my big sister around. You're gonna make us late. Again, she complained. Gosh, does it sound like somebody in your family?
Maybe Maybe not, right? I've seen it. I've seen once this meme is like get out of my room. I'm not in your room, in film or any room or any room or gas will happen to Zach. To my surprise access. I wasn't tired at all. And I launched out of bed like a rocket.
What did all this energy come from? I thought to myself, as I got dressed for Saturday madrasa I realized something was different. I felt different. And this was a feeling I hadn't felt for a very long time. It was the feeling of confidence. So probably knowing you're confident boys and girls, you know, when you believe in yourself, you feel different and he act differently. Now don't get me wrong. Don't be a show off. That's not what we are supposed to do. As Muslims. You can be confident or be humble like Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
I realized I was finally ready to crush my fees. I rushed downstairs to share the news with the family. They were in the middle of breakfast, but I just couldn't hold back my excitement. Or me. Maybe I'm ready to take swimming lessons again. I announced proudly with my chest out. Abby was so surprised almost choked on his Letterman. Oh,
good luck. Echoboy says my sister who I ignored. Are you sure Zack asked on me with a word look, never been sure in my life. I said with confidence and I promise not to quit this time in sha Allah.
When we arrived at the pools later that day, I could feel my heart beating inside my chest.
I can do this, I said, trying to calm myself down.
As I stood on the edge of the pool, My heart pounded so hard. It felt like it was about to pop out. I lowered my eyes to the water. It seemed darker and deeper than ever before. Sweat trickled down my back. Even though it wasn't hot at all.
happening to me, I thought to myself, I was super nervous. I can do this. I repeated. This time. The words came out croaky my mouth fell so dry. I had one last look at the water Bismillah guess what happens next boys and girls.
My eyes shot open my back's different up. My legs felt like they weighed 100 tons. I was certain there was something lurking in the water beneath. A feeling of dread crept up from the pit of my stomach. Zack, are you okay but will be asked as he rushed over with a concerned look on his face. You look pale Is everything all right? I just couldn't do it. I couldn't go into the water. I felt paralyzed as terror washed over me.
I'd be knocked down and give me a hug. It felt warm and cozy.
As I smell his pleasant and familiar scent, my muscles relaxed and I started to calm down. It's okay, Zach. I'd be sad stroking my head. It's okay to be afraid. I get scared sometimes to you know. Really have what I asked surprisingly, I get scared the baker will burn my xattr Man. Whoosh.
I said was the relaxed smile. Abby chuckled. Sorry, that joke. Speaking of Manos, how about we grab some sounds good to me. I agreed.
I agreed even though I didn't really feel like eating. I was simply happy to get out of there.
Are you okay, Zach? The next day? We were all in the car heading to Lake Park. That was one of our favorite places. We're worried about you. Haven't been yourself since yesterday. asked Mum with that usual concerned expression in sha Allah. I'll be okay. Luckily, I was still feeling down about yesterday. Then I started thinking what if I'm never meant to swim? What if I grow older my kids turn out like me. What if I'll always be known as the scaredy cat.
crazy thoughts rush through my head until we're he my sister's annoying voice bashed my ear drum. We had arrived at Lake path.
We unpacked our belongings and sat down beneath the tree to sit up was a beautiful day. birds were chirping without a cloud in the sky. On me, do you mind if I go for a walk? I asked. Sure things out, but stay close, okay Habibi will do in sha Allah. Notice boys and girls has asked for permission to leave. That's what you should do. Then just go off with the fairies and do what you want. You really make mum and dad worried sick, will do insha Allah and I stole my do me some good I thought to myself as I walked off, I really needed to get my mind off things.
The sound of my sneakers patted on the smooth pathway as I walked alongside the riverbank.
I was admiring the view. I gazed out towards the lake as the surface of the water glistened and sparkled from the reflection of sunlight. Subhan Allah water is so beautiful, and it's such a blessing from Allah. Why am I scared of it? I've wondered.
As I continued my work, I noticed the young kid playing near the edge of the water with an Aquaman and sea monster toy. Even though he was by himself, he was having so much fun. He made all kinds of funny kid like sounds and voices as He splashed and played to.
You will never take me alive sea monster. We will see about that Aqua ban. Yeah, we will see. Yeah, we will see. Yeah. Yeah, that's what I said.
Okay, and I was playing with these toys and they're playing. They're all these, you know, scenarios and sounds. So Zach says, I then remembered those fun times I had at the beach with my sister and only I was like that boy. I could play for hours and hours next to the water, and never be afraid.
I wished I was that boy for a moment.
I turned my head to look back. I could see my family in the distance talking amongst themselves as they prepared lunch. I didn't realize how far had walked. I better head back now. I thought to myself, only will get worried.
I turned my head back to the boy to get a last look before heading off. Huh? I said in surprise. He was gone.
The Aquaman and sea monster toys were floating on the water. There was a small ripple of waves with bubbles coming up from beneath. It took me a second to realize what had happened. And then I saw it.
A small heads up from the water
to pour heads fallen in. I went pale. My blood felt cold. I couldn't breathe. I inhaled and choked. Hell. No sound came out the boy's hands flat and flailed helplessly in the water. He was drowning.
Allah help us. I called upon Allah and begged him in my heart. I turned in the direction of my family in desperation, help. I screamed somebody. No one could he I was too far away. To run back to I jump in. What do I do? Getting help with waste precious moments, the boy needed saving. Now. At that moment, I realized what I had to do. Shivers went up and down my spine. It was up to me to rescue him. I learned from swim class to not jump into the water, but rather to toss something out to the person who was drowning. I looked around. Nothing was around without thinking. My legs exploded into action and launched me into the air. Hold on kid I yield. I'm coming.
I bolted towards where he was with one objective. Save the boy. I didn't know how but I didn't care for a moment. In that moment. I close my eyes and jumped in. Although I had a feeling it was shallow enough for me to stand. I was still terrified. The thought of the sea monster came to mind. I shut it out instantly. Got out of my head. I yelled as I close my eyes and jumped right into the lake. coldness overcame me. The water was freezing.
My clothes felt heavier by the second as they got drenched with water. I was searching for the boy. But there was too much seaweed. I felt something touched my leg. I reached down to pull the boy up to my anguish. It wasn't him. It was just a lousy old scooter. No, I cried in frustration. I searched Frank frantically for the boy. Nothing. I was beginning to panic. Your Allah helped me I begged again. At that moment the boys had shot up from the water. I lunged at it immediately. Success
I grabbed him. The boy was panicking too much to hold on to. I grabbed him again with all my mind and tried pulling him to the edge of the lake or wasn't working
with one tremendous pool. I got him onto shore while hamdulillah
Are you okay? Can you breathe? The boy sob
as he took in deep gasps of air, he was in shock at what had just happened. Bobby He wept. He didn't answer me what I could see he was okay.
I lay on my back as I stood up at the sky in shock and disbelief at what had happened. Did I really just save someone?
You also have my baby boy, are you okay? The mother rushed over, wrapped her arms around the boy and hugged him tightly. The boy continued to weep loudly. Thank you. Thank you young man. Use of smother said to me as she noted in a heartfelt gesture gesture. What happened?
Abby arrived on the scene with his mouth gaping open full of medical errors. Gosh, I mean, oh, me and my sister followed shortly after. Zach. Did you just save that boy? Asked mommy disbelief.
I hesitated. I still couldn't process what just happened? Yes, yes, he did use of smother. chimed in with a sense of pride. Your son said my little boy. Masha Allah. That's my boy. be explained as other crumbs fell from his mouth. You did it, Zach. You finally overcame your fear of the water. Alhamdulillah Oh, Ms. Word hit me like a slap in the face that finally slung it finally sunk in. I did it. I wasn't afraid anymore. I looked up at the sky. And thank Allah with all my heart. Zack, you are a hero. My big sister admitted.
Every life hero like Aquaman No, not like Aquaman says I corrected like no Alayhis Salam.
Salam aleikum? I'm Zack, but you will know that. I hope you enjoyed my story. As much as I enjoyed telling it to you.
We all have our own stories in life. But it's what we learn from the stories that matters most. Here's what I learned from mine. Number one, it's okay to be scared sometimes boys and girls, we're all scared of something. Number two, when you're scared, make dua to Allah and ask him for help. With Allah's help. Anything is possible. But that's not all. Don't just ask Allah You can also ask mom or dad or another responsible adult or friend for help when you're in trouble.
Number four Prophet no Haile Salam is my hero not at command doesn't exist. He's not real. Number five, I learned to put a lock on my door so my big sisters have barging into my room. Lesson number six. I learned never surprise my dad while he's eating Manouche. And finally, sea monsters are not real. Or are they who knows insha Allah Tala boys and girls, I hope you enjoyed part one of the series, entitled before the Avengers, we had the messengers and you can see Zack with his new bestie doesn't see monster really exist. Who knows maybe in the future series, which we have already written. We're just waiting for the illustrations to come by. Maybe the sea monster will actually
make an appearance. Who knows. If you liked this story, you can purchase the original on Amazon right now. If you liked the second edition, which we just read tonight, we're almost done. As you saw as you realized some of the illustrations were not included. We will include them in the next edition. And if you would like the updated version, then all you have to do is subscribe to the sinner life Academy page. Most of your parents have already subscribed, if not tell them to subscribe, say mama I want to get that book inshallah and I want to know when it comes out. So we will post it on social media on our Facebook and Instagram page once it's ready, and we will also
notify your parents via email as well. And so this is part one no honey Salam. And as you can see the prophets not just talking about the prophets in general RL real heroes and role models. As you can see, you know, instead of Captain America The First Avenger, we look up to the first messenger know Haile salaam lived for over 950 years he invited these people to Islam with patients day and night Majan that day and night inviting people to Islam non stop, you know, I give a story night for two hours. I'm ready to hit the hey, you know he lived among the disbelievers who worshipped idols. You know we live also among non Muslims sometimes it's
Ha, sometimes you feel uncomfortable wearing the hijab in public, sometimes you feel uncomfortable praying in public. Well, the prophets also had to do that. But that didn't stop them from doing the right thing. And know how they Salam was mocked and bullied. That didn't stop him either. You know, sometimes you're mocked and bullied. Sometimes people say mean things about you. And try not to focus on that. Try to look at the positive Yes, it's sometimes hurts. And you do remember that, you know, I even remember when I was teased back at school, never forget, but you can't stop the tongues of the people. But don't let the tongues of the people stop. You know, Halle salaam built the Great
Ark by Allah's permission, he survived the great flood, he survived that problem along with the believers. So being a believer and a Muslim doesn't mean problems won't come, but it means surely you will survive. And if you want to read more about Noah highly cillum Go to chapter 71 of the Quran. There's a whole Surah named after him.
To help boys and girls, da da da, Ibrahim Ali Salam when you're thrown into the fire. What did he say? He said, I will put out the fire. He said has to be alone, Mr. Lucky, Musa when he saw frown and the Red Sea that he said I will not destroy frown and open the Red Sea. No, he said in the mail, obviously a dean, Allah is with me. When Jonas was thrown into the belly of the whale, did he say Oh ALLAH eject me take me out of this beast? No, he said La ilaha illa Anta panic and Nicodemo volley mean, when Muhammad Ali Sato Salam was faced with the assessment. You know, he told our back a letter has an alarm and I was with us. So does that save them? Imagine if you can save a profit?
What can it do to you and I ordinary Muslims? And you notice boys and girls, they didn't actually ask Allah to remove the problem. They just praised Allah. Right? I just praise Allah, they made dark liquor. They didn't actually ask Allah to remove it. You know why? That teaches you that, to trust Allah's plan. Allah has his own way of doing things. And that what Allah gives you, whether it's lockdown or COVID, or something else, whatever Allah gives you is better for you. Even if even if you don't see it now, you will see it later. Just be patient. So that is your superpower, everyone superpower who needs Iron Man's laser hands, when your hands have all the power you need to call
So chapter two is coming up in sha Allah as well as tall as an ad. So this young fellow has a problem. Okay, his problem is being shot but he also has taught problems as well. He's got big problems in his life. And his favorite superhero as you can guess I'm sure is and man. So just as Zack had a problem, and he thought Aquaman was your solution. We'll think again, this fellow over here his name's Kabir know Kabir means?
Yeah, big. Okay. And he's not big. The irony here is small. Right? His name's COVID. But he's so small SubhanAllah. So his problem is, he unfortunately, is so short and problems happen to him. So if you're kind of on the short side not to worry. This book is just for you in Sharma. And at the end of the day, Allah has doesn't really worry about if we're tall or short, right. So there you go. Oops. Last screen.
