Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam. We begin as always by praising Allah subhanho wa taala, the Exalted the Almighty make creator, we ask him to open those a beneficial knowledge for all of us. We asked him to open those of prosperity and abundance for all of us and we asked him to send his choices of blessings and salutations. Upon the final message, our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, he has family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of karma.
So as the title suggests, as the thumbnail suggests, we are going to be discussing a very powerful story, a story that will discuss the encounter between Musa alayhis salam and harder Elisa Twizzler. Now this story is captured in a surah that we generally read every single Friday. It was just last Friday, on Facebook live streamed a session where with the help of Allah, we were able to discuss a few reflections from the surah from South Africa have we discussed this story, the surah has four powerful stories within it, you have the story of us Hamilcar of the people of the cave. And we discussed that that story deals with a trial of faith. And then you have the story of the owner of
the two gardens there you have a trial of filth, and then you have the story of Musa al Islam, Islam and harder Allah to Islam, which deals with the trial of knowledge. And then you have the story of Little Charmaine that deals with the trial of power. So without any further ado, I'd like to jump right into the story because I'm sure
we're all excited to study and learn about this powerful so Ryan at this juncture, I'd like to remind you all do share the video do do like the video that helps with the algorithm of you know, ensuring that the video shows up in you know,
other people's feeds as well the ones who are interested in this content and so that this content will inspire others and so that we will be able to all shine on the reward inshallah Allah and if you have not subscribed to the channel, do subscribe, and you'll find the little bell next to the subscribe button hit that as well. So you get a notification also when a video goes live in sha Allah, Allah so we can grow our community of subscribers, this YouTube family in sha Allah, Allah.
Alright, so to proceed. Now I'm sure a lot of us we are familiar with this prophet of Allah Musa alayhis. Salam, right, he is from this special category known as realism. Now for those of you who are not familiar with this category, all Azim is a category of five special prophets of Allah. And they, if we were to go in order, no Heisler to Islam, the Prophet Noah, then you have Ibrahim Isla to Islam the Prophet Abraham Musa Elisa to slam the Prophet everybody be talking about and then the Prophet Isa and his letters love Jesus. And then we have Mohammed Salah Toby was salam, Wa la madame F father and myself be ransomed and sacrificed for him, sal Allahu Allah here and he will set them
so we are familiar with more Sirisha to Islam but who was harder
Now you will see, the story will shed a lot of light in sha Allah are going to be reading IR Trump's total cap and discussing the story.
But I'd like to mention that we have around three views with regards to this individual one view states that he was a well he mean earlier that he was a friend from the friends of Allah, righteous individually you just can't qualify your become a really you to be a righteous individually you have to have you know have any be an individual full of Taqwa fearing Allah conscious of Allah doing as many good deeds as possible, staying away from the Mohammed, you become a really mean LDI Allah.
So one view, deems that he was a friend from the Friends of
the second view deems that he was a Nebby mean MBI Allah that He was a prophet from the prophets of Allah Now you might be wondering, but hold on most artists that was when I was a prophet as well. So most of it is led to Islam is considered a Rasul. So, basically, if you were to go in order, you have the Nebby and then you have Russell. So you have
now in terms of the views, you have Valley, okay, and then you have an A B, who is obviously greater than a valley and then you have Rasool,
which is the highest category in terms of, you know, the three basically All right, so you
could safely say that every Rasool is an A B, but not every Nabis are soul.
Now musculoskeletal Salaam and his brother Harun were both prophets Alima salat wa salam Mosul is that Muslim was era soon. So one
one outstanding trade to differentiate between a Rasul Allah and Abby is that a Rasool is a messenger who is given a scripture. So Musa is that was Love was given the torah so he was given a scripture, Harun Allah wa salam was also a prophet during the time of Moses led to Islam, but he is not considered a Rasul brother in OB. So an OB will follow up on the same revelation of same scripture that was given to the Rasul at that time. So similarly, and so basically, what I was trying to highlight earlier on is that during the time of aerosol, you can have multiple Ambia along with that Rasul. So just like we had Mozart's that was the who was the Rasul of that time, and how
rune Alice Latos law was a Nebby. Now you have heard that as well as per this view that deems him to be in a basement and be a lab. So every Rasul is a Nebby, but not every Nebby is airseoul. And then you can go on to say that every Nebby is, by default a village, meaning every newbie is a friend of Allah, but not every valley is a newbie, not everybody is a newbie, I hope the fine nuances were understood there are.
So the second view Diems seem to be a newbie, the third view deems him to be a,
a Melech an angel. So having mentioned these three views, I would like now, I would like to now go on into the story, and towards the end of the story, we'll see which of these views fit this powerful individual in Sharla Tana
So the story begins with Musala salatu salam as well as by an authentic narration, he is addressing the venomous rial, and a question is posed mozarella to a Salam is being asked, and this incident, the narration goes around the edge of these words, almost, who is the most knowledgeable
of us all? Now, most of us that was lamb have to mention this before.
You know, mentioning his response,
this was not coming from a place of pride or arrogance or giving into one's ego or thinking high and mighty of oneself. No, this is a prophet of Allah. Right? So he without even batting an eyelid he thought to himself, I am a prophet of Allah and I'm receiving divine revelation from Allah so who else can be more knowledgeable than myself? So having that in mind, he said, I'm the most knowledgeable. Immediately Allah informs masala slat was salam.
Ala informes, mozarella to CERAM because Allah Who ilm, Allah is the most knowledgeable, so Allah informs Musa salat wa salam O Musa, despite you being a prophet, there is another slave of mine, who is more knowledgeable than you are.
And more Salah to salaam, immediately immediately DUNS the gobs of a student.
And this is the beauty of it, you can see that it was not from a place of pride, that he didn't go on to argue and and dismiss this individual and say, Oh, how can there be someone who is more knowledgeable than I am was I am your property Allah? How can there be someone who is more knowledgeable? How can it's almost like you know, how can there be someone in terms of knowledge higher than me? He didn't go on to argue he didn't dismiss this individual. Rather, he immediately dawned at the gobs of a student and he wanted to go, he wanted to know where is this individual so that he could go to him and become a student under him study under him. Allah subhanho wa taala.
He mentioned the statement of musculoskeletal slammin SOTL KEF
what is called a Musa leafcutter who learn about Rahu Hata beluga Majid mahal Bahraini omdia Hakoda.
And remember, with color, Musa le Fatah Musa says to Leafa so he had a companion who is accompanying him as we will see in the in the following If he says Lebra who had a blower Majima Alba hurry, I will not see. In other words, I have not ceased traveling Hatha biloba Jamal by train until I reach my Jamal Bahrain. So if you've actually literally translated until I meet until I reached the junction of the two seas, how I'm the Hakuba or until I continue traveling for a long period of time
Hakuba it's a form of, you know, trying to say you know, almost like in English if you were to say, you know, I'll travel for a lifetime, I'll go on traveling for a long period of time until I meet him at a meet this individual.
So, a beautiful lesson that can be deduced at this at this point, my dear brothers and sisters in in sha Allah, this will be the style of this episode wherever we can deduce a lesson or two, we're going to deduce it and discuss it and then move on with the story. Look at the relentless spirit of Moses, let Muslim
you see a lot of us
once we achieve certain ranks, certain positions, certain types of officers, if you will, certain degrees, that that spirit of seeking knowledge withers and and fades away. We think oh, you know, how can I? Yeah, when I was young, fine.
I can go seek knowledge but now for who I am. I can't do that anymore. My dear brother, my dear sister. Seek knowledge regardless of how old you are, regardless of your circumstances do not give up seeking knowledge. The first ayat that were revealed unto Abba messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Cora read our knowledge, our our religion, our deen is a knowledge based religion. There's so much of emphasis, so much of importance attached to seeking knowledge. So seek knowledge as much as you can look at the relentless spirit of this prophet of Allah. He's immediately undertaking a journey. He's not sitting back in his office today, look at Subhanallah the tools that we have at
our disposal to seek knowledge and yet are we seeking knowledge? Do we have to undertake long sea journeys? To seek knowledge? Everything you know, all this information so much is just at our fingertips, but are we seeking knowledge, our RV furthering our knowledge
Subhanallah look at the relentless spirit of this prophet of Allah is immediately setting out on a journey to seek knowledge. So this should be the spirit of believer when it comes to knowledge.
You've got so much valuable content.
See, for example, in the form of this video, we're going to be discussing and learning about the story of mozzarella Tuusula, but how many of us think about it would rather choose to
spend time on Netflix? In a binge watching series after series, episode after episode we don't ever feel the time passing by. And at the end at the end of the day after watching an entire series sometimes you know you go into social media you see all kinds of
you know people posting um, you know, binge watching this series binge watching that series Subhanallah Okay, let's say you watched 50 episodes 100 episodes, what are you left with my dear brother, my dear sister after all of that.
And yet you dismiss valuable content.
So we need to get our priorities straight, when it comes to seeking knowledge. So you see, most of this led to Islam immediately ready to set out on a journey.
And he asks Allah subhanho wa taala.
As to how is he going to be able to meet this the slave of his this individual?
So we have, we have the ayat in SOTL calf, and along with that we also have the hadith of obey even cab or the Allahu Anhu that outlines this story. With more details, we're going to couple the two together to get a very clear picture of the story. So when Musa is led to salaam, asks about the slave, Allah azza wa jal reveals unto him and this is mentioned the hadith of obey even cap. Allah reveals unto Moses led to Islam there is a slave of mine at the junction of the two seas at my Jamal Bahrain who is more knowledgeable than you. So now more salat wa salam decides to go to Mudjimba Al Baqarah. Right. Now with regards to my Jamal Bahrain, like I said, which can be translated as the
junction of the two seas. I'm just I'm having my map over here. You have a plethora of opinions by the brothers and sisters. When you go through the books of FC for example, Imam Ibn katheer Rahim Allah has a view then, apart from that, when you go into different books, you see, the scholars of the past have had different views in terms of
you know, placing a finger with regards to Majapahit Bahrain. So there are those who would say that, okay, it is where the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea meets that's much better and somewhere around here. There are those who would say it is it is
Perhaps the place where the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea meets so that's somewhere around here. And there are those who would go on set to go on to say that it is, it is it is basically
over here. So you have the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea. So, where the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea meet that is my Jamal Bahrain. So, what we would say at this juncture is well, loudhailer item, Allah knows best but it was revealed unto Moses let wa salam that it is going to be at a point where two seas are meeting at a junction of two seas, and that is where you will find this individual. And it was also revealed unto Musa Setosa because he asks Allah How can I find him okay? If I go to my Jamal Bahrain, or the law he was there, there are so many human beings there are so many locations, how am I to find this individual? So it was said unto him take with you a fish
and put it in a basket. And then where you lose the fish, that's your location marker. If you you know, sometimes you you send a pin on Google Maps on WhatsApp, right? So where you lose the fish, this individual will be there. So most risotto slam complies, he takes a fish he puts it into a basket and now he sets out
Who is he accompanied with? He basically takes along yuusha even known with him that the story have usually been known is the story for another day in childhood. But nonetheless, he takes you shot even known with him, and now the two of them they set out as Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions Fela Marbella, la Majima, Albania Hema, Nasir hota, Houma but the harder Sabina Whoville Buhari Sahaba so we're going to be discussing that in just a bit. But before I proceed, there's another beautiful lesson to be deduced. masalas letter Salam takes a companion with him. So from this, we learn the benefit of having a companion with you. Having a good friend with you, a good companion,
when going out to seek knowledge in terms of good causes, having the right company with you. They encourage you, they inspire you, they motivate you.
They put positive thoughts in your heart, in your mind in your head.
But on the other hand, having the wrong type of company.
If you're going to have
negative company, they're going to drag you down. They're going to demotivate you, they're going to fill your heart mind and head with negative and toxic thoughts.
And this is why the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when teaching us about the importance of good company, he strikes an example he he outlines the parable of a good friend and a bad friend. Being like a perfume seller and a blacksmith. If you spend time with the perfumes, seller, what would happen even if you were not to buy any perfume from the perfume seller, if you were to go into the store of the perfume cellar and come out, you're going to come out sweet smelling. Why? Because at the very least there will be some tester bottles in his store and you'll end up spraying some perfume on you and you will come out sweet smelling in shallow talent. On the
other hand, when you go to the company of a blacksmith, you need not get involved in the work of the blacksmith but by being in the furnace of the blacksmith or in his at his workshop, what's going to happen you're going to end up coming out of the workshop with with the smell of suit and cold.
So similarly good company versus bad company you hang out with the right type of individuals with good company you're going to be impacted you're going to be influenced you're going to have there's this positive effect that's going to be on you in sha Allah, Allah but on the other hand,
the wrong company bad company will end up having a bad influence on you may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all I mean
so what happens now?
Allah mentions in South Africa have Flama Bella Majima Bane, he might not see or hold the Home off at the hada sebelah who will bury Sahaba so when they when they the two of them and they reached the junction they forgot their fish and it took its course into the sea slipping away
from them my Java zap call le Fattah who Atina Vada and Allah called the Latina mean Severina Haddon asada. Okay, so before we get into that, I'd like to go back to the Hadith obey human capital the allawah. So now what did we say we said that Musa is that was it only takes a fish puts it in the basket and they set out.
Now they come to a rock. So we're talking about a sea journey here. So perhaps it was a rock and a small island. They come by a rock
And they they rest on that rock, they lay down and they go to sleep. Now the Hadith mentions that at that time the fish stirs in the basket, and then it escapes from the basket, and it takes its way through the sea into the tunnel.
Now, there's another report, and this is mentioned by Mr. Bahari, Rahim Allah that at the base of the rock, there was a fountain, a spring called El Hyatt, it was called a higher, basically which means life. So this fountain was known as the fountain of life. And what was known about this fountain was that nothing was touched by its water, but miraculously that thing would come to life. So the fish was touched by the water of that spring. So Allah Allah, Allah subhana, Allah knows best in regards to this, the water of that spring touches the fish, and it begins to move, and it escapes from the basket into the sea.
So remember, Kathira himolla, he mentioned that as it was making its way to the seed almost formed like a tunnel of water, there was this tunnel of water, and the fish made its way into the water in an amazing way.
So this is what the hadith of obey human capital, they allow no states, right. So now you shall be known witnesses this, the fish coming to life, and making its way into the water in an amazing way. There was this tunnel of water and the fish swimming away. But at that juncture,
you shall be known forgets now to inform more salat wa salam about this. And what happens, they pass that location. So perhaps no more says that Muslim has an app, you wakes up and now they pass the location and they move on. Now once the right after passing the location
as the eye indicates there was suddenly feeling very tired. It was the will of Allah as they pass that location, they suddenly started to feel fatigue and tiredness overtaking them. And then Musa is that was lamb he says it now hada Anna, bring us our morning meal locker, the lucky Nam in suffering. And as NASA we've certainly you know, become very tired in this journey.
So at that point, you shall be known remembers because maybe he had to go get the food from the same basket perhaps and somehow he remembers about the fish and then he says color or at the Wayna Illa Sora for in Nina Seatoun who the warmer and sunny Illa shaytaan one as Cora what the other sebelah who feel Baja Jabba, he says, Did you see when we when we stopped at the rock to rest? I forgot the fish there. And it was Chopin who made me forget? It was Shelton who made me forget that I should mention it to you. And what happened the fish but the hoarder sebelah who filled bajada the fish took its course into the sea in an amazing way.
So the minute Musala salatu salam hears this the very next I
adhere to you observe something about Musa Ali's Latos law despite being tired despite being hungry at that juncture, he does not go on to rebuke
you shall even known the minute you Scheiber noon mentions this Musa to Islam says Carla Valley Kumbhakarna nabavi farted Diala Hema Casa Musa is that was lapses that is what we are seeking. And then what do they do they return, they go back,
they return following their footprints. They go back to I mean, they pass that location and men pass on or they go back to that point.
So here too, we learn that you know, it is human to make mistakes. But what's important is that when you make a mistake, acknowledge it.
You have to apologize, apologize if you have to seek forgiveness, seek forgiveness.
And that is of paramount importance is the truth. You come back to that objective truth. That's what's key. So this is what they're doing now they made a mistake. They missed the location. And he goes on to acknowledge his mistake and he says Reshef on that made me forget
and then they go back looking for that location. Now once they reach that same point, Allah mentions for wotja The two of them found the abdomen a bar dinner, they found a servant from our servants. Dana who Ramita Mina in dinner, to whom we had given mercy from Us why Lemna Humala dinner
Selma and we had taught us and we had taught him from us a certain knowledge.
So now introductions are made most of these Latos law meets harder.
Okay, and then Musa Allyssa to slam asks him call Allahu Musa Bok Isla and two highly minimum alimta, Russia.
May I follow you may have become a student under you on the condition that you teach me from what you have been taught of.
Can I follow you can I be a student under you? How they're very coolly response color in the Kolenda study Am I sobre he says, Indeed, you will not be able to have patience you will not be able to bear patients with me if you were to become a student of mine Subhan Allah this is an interesting encounter right so Musa Islam Muslim wants to be a student and the harder and harder is saying how did this letter slam is saying I don't think you will have patience. I don't think you'll be able to bear patients with me the most is that wassalam asks him okay for the speed while MLM to hit to be here, Cobra
know how that goes on to ask him and how this he says you will not have patience with Manny says how can you have patience with me for something that you do not know for something that you do not encompass in knowledge? How are you going to have patience with regards to those matters? So most of us like to slam response he says Call us a tagine insha Allah who saw Baron while our silica he says Insha Allah, you will find me patient and I will not disobey you in any order. You will find me patient in sha Allah so then how that agrees and he says color for in it by attorney if Allah does only I'm shaking hands of the silica men who the Kra he said then if you are to follow me, Do not
ask me about anything until I mentioned it to you until I explain things to you until I make mentioned about it to you Do not ask me about anything. Fun, Tanaka. And now the two of them begin their journey.
My dear brothers and sisters at this point, I'd like to also discuss about how there again. So the name Hodel.
Why was he called Harder, harder stems from the Arabic word Hydra Hydra in the Arabic language, right the word Hydra, which basically means green. So why was he known as green, some would call him the green one as how that why green, there are again views being put forward, there's one view that states that he was an individual, whom, if he were to go to a location, and if you would leave from that location, there will be a lot of greenery, a lot of foliage, a lot of cultivation taking place. So there were some who viewed this as being
something miraculous, where, by His mere presence, and perhaps due to the baraka of the righteousness of this individual, when he would leave that place, there will be a lot of greenery and a lot of foliage growing. Another view is that he himself would get involved, he was an individual who would plant and cultivate and, you know, establish all of that he was a person who would bring about a lot of goodness in that sense, by empowering the people of that location and helping them and so on and so forth. So there are views there are others who would say that you know, he would wear green clothing there are a number of views with regards to why his name is his
name was harder Allah Allah Allah, Allah Subhana Allah knows best in this regard.
We obviously don't have any conclusive evidence from the Quran or the sunnah to conclusively give details in regards to things like this I'm just mentioning the the views that are in the books of history and in the various books of Tafseer as well. So now from Tala they set out on their journey had a rocky bath is Safina so what happens is that they had to perhaps
cross again under the Cassie journey and so they bought a ship so when going back now to the hadith of obey even Cabral the allow I know let's see what details we have there
so now we're talking about the strange and wondrous journey that begins at this point.
So they embark a ship so that they had to undertake this the the sea journey, so they were walking along the seashore and they pass by a ship and they spoke to the crew of that ship about taking them on as passengers. Now the crew of the ship they recognize Aloha there, and they agree to take them on board FOC free of charge at no cost. Now when they bought
Did the ship
and as they embarked on the journey,
before the main incident of the ship takes place, there was a little bird, a sparrow that comes and sits on the edge of the boat and it dips its beak into the sea
harder and it's led to a Salam observing this he, he comments now and he teaches musculoskeletal salah. He tells Moses led to a Salam, my knowledge and your knowledge, you are a prophet of Allah, your knowledge and my knowledge
combined, okay, in comparison to the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala is no more than the water taken by that sparrow in its beak from the sea. In other words, the parable is that the sea is akin to the knowledge of Allah and even the sea. If you had measures to quantify it, if you had methodologies to quantify it, you would be able to quantify the waters of the oceans right.
Allah's knowledge is infinite. There's no way to quantify it, no shows to it. But in this parable, just to you know, for our weak minds, well Illa hellmouth Allah, Allah is above all of these examples, but for our weak minds to understand the knowledge of musculoskeletal Islam and the knowledge of how they're combined is like the water in the beak of that tiny bird in comparison to the ocean, which is the knowledge of Allah and the knowledge of Allah is far beyond that. Subhan Allah Subhan Allah glory be unto him, the Almighty. Now what happens after that? Suddenly, Mozilla's Latos law observes how they're
pulling out one of the planks of this ship, and and basically scuttling it in a small way, damaging it in a small way.
Musar is that was like immediately retorts, and he cries out he tells her there, these people, they took us on board at no cost. And now you've deliberately scuttled their ship in order to drown its people. Now let's go back to the Quran higher.
Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentions
from Takahata Iraqi birth is at a rocky birth is Safina at the heart of Coca Cola ahora Kuta Holly Tulika Aloha la Khadija Tasha and Emre musculoskeletal Latos law asks him a Hirakata Harley Tory Corolla have you torn it open to drown its people to drown the people of the ship, Lakota Geeta and Emre, you have certainly done a grave thing.
And it's interesting to note many brothers and sisters, they look at how musculoskeletal Salam put forth the question, he's on the same ship. Okay. And he's, I mean by the action of her there, I mean, if the ship were to be damaged, he's also going to drown but instead of asking him, or instead of retorting that you have torn, the ship open to drown us, he forgets about himself and this is the, the high or you know, the high orders of thinking, the high order thinking and the high nature of the prophets of Allah where they are always thinking about others. Look at the words of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Now, you may know Hijikata you might say, Oh Kumbhakarna is to Islam.
None of you have truly bought brought in Eman until you love for your brother and your sister what you love for yourself Subhan Allah. So look at more salat wa salam, he's not even thinking about himself. He's not saying we are all going to drown law. What's he saying?
You're doing this and you're going to drown the people of the ship. He had completely forgotten about himself because it is in the nature. It is in the DNA of the prophets of Allah to always prioritize others. So this is the lesson for us as well. At times, look at how self centered we are. Just focusing on the world today. We're so selfish, all of us Subhan Allah but the prophets of Allah, the teaching us to be caring, to be kind to be loving to think about this, to prioritize others, these are the teachings of the Quran. These are the teachings of the of the Prophet of Allah Subhan Allah.
So to proceed now there looks at him and he says hi LM lm acqualina calendar Sathya sobre he said he did not say that you will not be able to have patience with me. So Musa is led to Islam immediately regained his composure now when he says like to hit maybe minus eat? Well, I told him in a minute Amina I mean Emery Ostra he says Do not blame me for what I've forgot. And
and do not cover me in any matter with the difficulty. Okay, so with that the journey continues now, we're going to come back to the explanation of what has happened, but let's proceed with the story. So, I number 74, Allah mentions Fanta locka. So they proceed. So perhaps now they came. So you have to understand that he did not damage the ship entirely. It was a small damage that was done. Now they arrived at their destination, and they disembark from the ship and now they, they're moving inland now.
So what happens? Fun Takahata either luckier or gulaman for Khattala.
Now they're traveling into the land, and they see a group of children. Let's go to the hadith of obey up macabre, the allawah. And whoa, and see whether we have some additional details there.
Okay, yeah, so there too, it says the same thing.
So they're walking on the show now, and most I listen to slammin harddrives, Latos law, they see a boy playing with some other boys. So how dare he grabs hold of this boy, he takes him to a side and he kills him.
Musa alayhis salam could not keep quiet and this is this is another.
This is another thing that has to be pointed out as well the prophets of Allah, it is again in their nature
to stand up for what is right. They cannot tolerate any harm being done. So the minute musculoskeletal slam saw this immediately cries out a Kadota nafcillin Zacky yet can be very neffs Laqad. The Gita share nohcra Have you killed a katana Epson Have you killed a pure soul? Have you killed an innocent soul? The cottagey Tasha and nohcra you have certainly done something that is despicable.
Once again how their looks at him and calmly asks him Carla Allameh Calaca. And as you can see, he interestingly in the Arabic language language, that the tone that is being used or the words the language here is slightly
harsher than how it was earlier on. So if you look at the with with regards to scuttling the ship, he says call it lm a call in Nikola Tesla TMI sobre. Did I not say that you would not be able to have patience here? Lm Alko laka Did I not tell you that you will not be able to have patience? So at this juncture, again musasa to Islam says inside to cache in bad they have Fela to Sahibi. But the bulk of the mill Adonia Hydra, he says and most I said was he he self imposes this condition. He says if I should ask you about anything after this, then you have you've gotten an excuse. We don't have to be companions anymore. In other words, you don't have to keep me as a companion we can
pathways. If I ask you about anything after this, then we pathways so this was a condition hardware didn't bring in this condition most alleys that was perhaps he was frustrated at this point. He self imposes this condition.
Frontal aka another journey continues had either at Asia,
a Korea they come to the people of a town
and what happens they asked the people for food
because it was the norm then that when passing by a village or a town that there was this norm of hospitality that could be expected and this is what they were expecting. But the people of the village were not good people. They were very stingy. Very harsh, very rude and that was their nature. So they refused. They refused this norm of hospitality. They refuse to give them even a drop of water.
They refused to offer them any form of hospitality. For water the fee had the dollar
so now they've been refused
hospitality like I said not even a drought of water. They're moving away and they find a wall the two of them find a wall that is about to collapse. And but it's harder to do now ferwerda Daffy had it out on you redo it and called the for a comma.
He repairs the wall
the most Alice that was Rob looks at him any comments he says hi lo [???]ala Tada Alejandra. If you wish you should have taken a payment a wage for it and we could have used that money to get some food to buy some food.
So how they are now calmly responds Haida firaga by nearby Nick. This is the party now between me and you. So Hola, Bo Kavita, really my love
started early Sabra. Now I'm going to inform you of the interpretations of all of what you could not have patience about. And here we have the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, may Allah have mercy upon Musa, may Allah have mercy upon Musa if only he was patient, he would have seen many a strange and amazing thing Subhanallah you'd have seen many many strange things many wondrous things.
The accompanying hardware Iris lottosend Now how did I start to Islam begins to explain he says, I must Safina I am number 79. I'm a Safina for Canada Lee Misaki in Yama una Phil Bihar. Now as for the ship, it belonged to poor people to some poor people working at sea
for our to Nia Baja, what kinda wha hoo Malecon yet who do Kula Safina tin of WASPA. So I intended to cause a defect in it, because there was,
in other words, that they dropped us off. And they were headed to a destination where there was a king, who was seizing every good ship by force. So there is a king at their destination who is seizing ships that are in good condition by force. So by damaging their ship in a small way,
the king, this this
will overlook their ship. Yes, they will have to damage they will have to repair the damage of the ship, it will cost them more perhaps they'd have to put in the labor and all of that, but they're not going to lose their ship entirely.
So it's a smaller calamity for them, then losing their ship entirely. So this is why
the scuttling that small form of scuttling was done. Before we move on to the next explanation. What are the lessons that we can deduce at this junction many brothers and sisters,
you have to understand that it is the plan of Allah that is in motion.
And this life is full of tests, trials, challenges and calamities.
At times we run into a test. And we are to blasphemous things we try to wage war with Allah subhanho wa Taala not realizing that it is from the Mercy of Allah and I just want you all to put yourselves in the shoes of those poor people, the crew of the ship, alright, just put yourself in the shoes of the crew of the ship.
Just imagine what must have been good, what must have gone on in their minds.
They are already poor. Okay, but they were generous, and good hearted, to take mozarella to Islam and Hydra risotto Islam on board FOC, free of charge, they don't even charge them any money.
And now after dropping them off at their destination, they find out that these two passengers that we took on board, we were kind hearted, we were good. And we took them on board free of charge, they have damaged our ship and they've gone they must have been so frustrated. So vexed, so angry, so hurt, right.
But after reaching the destination,
and observing the king, usurping and taking all of the ships by force, and them escaping because of this small damage, now they're grateful. Now they're thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala Alhamdulillah, our ship was damaged. So similarly, my dear brothers and sisters, there are things that happen in our lives.
Where it happens, we can't make out as to why it's happening. We have so many questions in our minds, we're angry, we're hurt, we're full of pain. Sometimes you lose a loved one. Sometimes your marriage falls apart. Sometimes your business falls apart. Sometimes you face a huge loss. And you are trying to sift through all of that decipher what's going on in your life, not realizing that you're grappling with a tiny pixel from the big picture. And Allah has access to the big picture. Place your trust in Him and so long as you are conscious of Allah, so long as you are a good human being so long as you are doing good deeds and staying away from that which is prohibited. That which
angers Allah azza wa jal, then, everything is good for a believer as per the words of the messenger, I Diabelli Umbrella Movement, the Prophet of Allah tells us amazing, the affairs of a believer and the narration goes along the lines of these words. When a good thing happens. The believer and his gratitude renders shukran to Allah when something bad happens, he holds on to
Patience and both these things are good for the believer.
Now her there goes on to explain what Amala hula. Now as for the young boy for Karna Ababa homie Nene for her Sheena you're here for homage to Leon and Rocco for. And as for the boy,
his mother and father his parents were believers and we feared that he would overburden them by transgression and disbelief. For Aradhana you Padilla humara Buma Hieron, Minho, Zakat and Acaba, Rama. So we intended that the Lord should substitute for them, a child better than him in purity and nearer to Mercy. So in other words, he was informed by Allah subhanho wa taala, that this child is going to grow up
and become an individual full of transgression, he is going to grow up and become an individual who is going to be a huge test a huge trial for his parents.
So therefore, he should die. And he is going to be replaced by another child who is going to be pure, who is going to be righteous, who is going to be conscious of Allah, and who will be more loving to his parents. So again, now we will see the understanding of this many brothers and sisters. How did they not act out of his own accord? He was given divine instructions from Allah to do this, and he did this. Now as believers, what are the lessons that we can deduce from this many brothers and sisters, at times, our loved ones are taken away from us. Now here this incident even though it sounds you look so cruel from outside, this is the plan of Allah taking place. Let's say
the Angel of Death comes and takes away your soul. For this boy too young to die at this young age, it is a mercy for his parents, it is a mercy for their child as well, rather than him growing up.
Let me tell you this.
the mother when she found out about her child in the story, okay. One can only imagine the mother must have been full of grief. She must have been heartbroken.
But can you compare that pain because see, at the end of the day, she's heartbroken. She's hurting, she's in pain, but she has fond and loving and innocent memories of her child. But if the child were to grow up to become a crook, if the child were to grow up to become a criminal, if the child were to grow up to become a rapist, if the child were to grow up to become a murderer, if the child were to grow up to become an oppressor,
just imagine how many heartbreaks and how much of pain the mother would have to go through. She'd have to live in agony to see her child. She's not going to have pure and innocent memories or thoughts of her child, she's going to be seeing her child being a crook, a criminal. So which one do you think is better? Both are painful, but which one is better?
And which one do you think is better for the child for the child to die young as an innocent child or to grow up to become a criminal crook and oppressor transgressor, full of disbelief and transgression and evil and vice. So you see the mercy of Allah you can't see a lot of us we want to define the Mercy of Allah and put it into a box, the Mercy of Allah takes on so many different forms. Here to this is the Mercy of Allah upon the parents, it is a Mercy of Allah upon the child, because dying at such a young age the child goes straight into Jannah. And that child is going to be a cause for the parents also to go into Jannah in sha Allah Tala. We know of the Hadith, where Allah
subhanho wa Taala will quickly gloss over the Hadith where Allah asks the angels have you taken the apple of the eye of my slave, because that the child of that slave was taken, and the angels say yes. And then Allah asked me What did my slaves say? And then the angels will respond he did not say anything blasphemous, but rather, he praised you glorify to your Allah. And Allah will say built built by will hand a house for that slave known as the house of praise for that slave in in paradise engine, Allah Akbar.
So we go through the loss of loved ones, and we're trying to figure this out. We are in so much of pain we're hurting.
But the plan of Allah is in motion. And there are different types of mercies that we cannot at times.
Perhaps during our lifetimes, we might experience it, we might witness it or we will see it and Allaha
But we have to place our trust in Allah that He is the best disposal of all of our affairs. The last explanation put forth by Hodder
is that one Mirja rose for the wall for carnally hula mania the main film Medina it belong to two orphans in the city to orphan boys in the city. What can and now that city that town was full of evil, greedy and stingy individuals? The wall, okay. It belonged to orphan boys in the city. What can a doctor who cans and beneath the wall, there is a treasure for them? What kind of abou Houma salejaw Their father was a righteous individual for Arada Rob Buka Yeah, beluga should the Homer was the Hijjah Kansa Omarama 10 Min robic.
So Allah intended,
Allah intended that they reach maturity and extract their treasure as a mercy from Allah Subhana Allah that. And then he goes on to say, Well, Mr. Fall to one Emery. Okay, we'll come back to that after finishing this explanation. So now we're talking about a wall okay, that belongs to two orphan boys. Now Subhanallah what are the lessons that we can deduce from this, this bit of the story.
The the key operative part of the I O are kind of a boo hoo, musalia. Their father was a righteous individual. Their father was a righteous individual, and he had kept some treasure, some wealth, some money for his children. And these two young boys are orphans.
These two young boys are orphans.
And and I want you to bear in mind and pay close attention. Now you might be wondering
what's going on here?
Point number one. What kind of boohoo musalia Because their father was a righteous individual. Liza jelly sending more Silius Latos law and how they're police Latos law.
If you go with the view,
that he was a prophet of Allah, that Allah is sending a prophet of Allah to protect their wealth, if you go with the view that he was an angel that Allah is sending an angel and a prophet merciless
to protect their wealth. Why were cannibal musalia Because their father was a righteous individual. If you want your wealth to be protected for your generations to come meet your brother Marissa sister. Dakwah is key. Hold on to taqwa, hold on to righteousness, and Allah will protect your wealth for your children.
So that's point number one. So it was because of the piety. And there are some
books of the seer that mentioned
what kind of Abu Messiah Lehigh in the sense it was not even their father, but rather their great, great, great, great grandfather, seven generations above their Somoza, it's seven generations, some will say five, sample say for above, it was a great grandfather, suppose it was a great great grandfather who had buried the treasure. And because of his piety, generations down the line, the wealth is being protected for these two young children.
Alright, so that's point number one. Point number two, you might be thinking, well, they're orphans now.
If the wealth were to come out, they would be able to benefit from it immediately. See, this is another mistake that you and I we make. We don't know. My dear brothers and sisters.
What is good for us in terms of its timing.
See, one scenario that could have played out is if the wall had collapsed.
Perhaps the two orphan boys, their young boys with their mother.
And if the wealth were to, if that treasure
were to be exposed by talking about greedy villages to town people, they would have all come and usurped all of the money. Why? Because the two children are too young to defend themselves to defend the the mother and to protect their wealth. So just imagine the pain and the agony that that family would have undergone. If that wealth were to have been plucked away from their eyes in front of them.
Or if someone were to come in and try to protect the wealth for them, quote, unquote, protect and cheat them. That would also be something very, very painful, but rather it was the plan of Allah for the wealth to be hidden. For the treasure to be hidden.
and protected until these two young boys uh, yeah beluga until they become mature enough. Yeah beluga should the Como esta Raja cancer Houma and when they are able to, perhaps it was mentioned in a will somewhere or some indication was made of it so when they were to
the timing of Allah is that it would be appropriate for them to grow up and extract the treasure themselves because now they are old enough to defend and protect what is theirs, rightfully. So you have to trust the timing of Allah subhanho wa taala. See, that's the thing that a lot of us are grappling with. We make so much of dough and we keep asking y'all I want this, I want that. And we want it then in there. We do not place our trust in Allah in such a way where we trust the timing of Allah. Allah knows when to give you what my dear brother my dear sister, you have to have complete trust in the timing of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you should not give up on your prayers you should
keep making dua and have complete trust in the timing of Allah Allah knows when exactly to give it to you inshallah.
And then how there are caps off the story by saying woman file to an emery
and I did not do it out of my own accord.
There Licata we Luma LM dusty Isla sobre. And this is the interpretation of that which you could not have patience.
So many brothers and sisters, that's the key thing homophile to one, at least was the end of the story, which we can tie to the views that we mentioned at the beginning, he did not do any of this out of his own accord.
So all these three incidents, he was guided by Allah in terms of how, by in terms of what he should do at at each of these junctures. So this clearly tells us My dear brothers and sisters, that he is either a prophet of Allah, or an angel, from the angels of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So here you have two views. Now why because you say, well my file to an Emory, I did not do it out of my own accord, I have been divinely instructed, I've been instructed by Allah to do what I did. So he's either a prophet of Allah, or an angel from the angels of Allah, those who consider him to be an angel from the angels of Allah, they cite stating that, you see, in each of these three incidents, he was
instructed by Allah and he was having access to that which is apparent in the situation in these three situations, he had access to that which is apparent and that which was hidden.
So that's why they say that he has to be an angel from the angels of Allah. And most eyelids that was salam. Because you have an immediate comparison there. In each of these three situations. Most of us that was not being a prophet of Allah, he only had access to that which was a pattern from the situations, the three situations the ship, the young boy, and the wall, Moses led to Islam being a prophet of Allah, he only had access to that which was apparently happening in all of the three situations, but harder for the ones who consider him to be an angel state because he was an angel divinely instructed and commanded by Allah, he had access to that which is that which was a parent,
a lawyer and bath in that which was a parent and that which was hidden
in each of the three situations.
Okay. And then there are others who say that he was a prophet of Allah was given an extra layer of instructions. Now that layer of instructions was not given to Moses law to Islam. So that is why he knew of that which was apparent and that which was hidden in each of those three situations. It was from the will of Allah, because the plan of Allah that Musa is led to a Salam should not know about these things until how there are ista to Islam were to inform him, so he will say Allah Knows Best with regards to whether he was a prophet of Allah or an angel from the angels of Allah subhanho wa taala. We have two compelling views there. But as you can see, we can clearly very safely state that
is above being a religion, Allah, Allah, because a valley, a friend, if he was only a friend from the friends of Allah, then he would not be able to do what he did in each of these three situations, especially taking the life of that young boy because that had to be
a divine command from Allah. No one today can claim or I'm a friend of Allah and I have received divine instructions to do this and go on to do something like that. No, so he had to be either a prophet of Allah or an angel from the angels of Allah subhanho wa taala. So as we now come to the conclusion of
The story there's this question that a lot of people at times pose with regards to how the Dalai Lama salaam being alive. Now we did mention
in one of the narrations that there was an indication with regards to my own higher the fountain of life. So some people do have a notion that because he's consumed water, or because he was located near that fountain, he may have consumed the water from that fountain and he is living forever and ever. But if you look at the evidence from the Quran and the Sunnah, the evidence from the Quran and the Sunnah clearly state that how there is law to a Salam has passed on. I want to mention a few of the evidences very quickly before we conclude number one, the primary principle Kulu, Neff Synergia cottonmouth, every soul shall inevitably test it. Now those who argue that he is still alive say
that we are not negating that he will never die, but He is not dead as of yet he will eventually die when the day of karma is established. Okay, so to move on, I'm going to mention the other evidences as well. Number two, Allah subhanaw taala also mentions another iomica, Nadia had the metabolic hellhole.
Allah says that we have not granted to any human being immortality before you or Muhammad said Allah Allah went after emit the formula Isleton then and Allah goes on to say that if you die, are they going to live forever? Then we also have a narration of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam that states that 100 years Allah said that the Prophet of Allah says that 100 years after the night on which he was speaking, none of the people who on the face of this earth would be alive to Professor Islam goes on to say I'll come a call Elisha to Islam from this night from this night onwards, 100 years after this, whoever is alive from now, none of us are going to be alive 100 years from this
point onwards. So, if hot, early slat was lamb was alive at that point. 100 years after the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is not going to be alive. The last compelling piece of evidence many brothers and sisters is that if he was alive, then during the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, it would have been incumbent upon him to come and meet the Prophet of Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
acknowledged the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to be along with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to embrace the message of the deen of Allah through Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and be with the Prophet of Allah. But we have no mention whatsoever from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam all through the Sahaba read volatile, highly mature mind about any encounter that took place between Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and harder
to set up. So based on this, we can safely conclude that yes, he did exist to the time of Moses led to Islam and this story is obviously captured in the Quran captured in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but as to whether he is alive now.
He has passed on as is the principle with regards to us the creation of Allah subhanho wa taala. And we conclude by saying, well, loudhailer Island, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. So with that we come to the end of this amazing story, the story between mozzarella to slam and harder, ls la to Salem, and I look forward to inshallah sharing more stories from the Quran and from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam in sha Allah, Allah. With that I conclude Zakah hair was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
