all praise and thanks with Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala, who is no doubt our Creator sustainer nourisher protector and cura we asked him subhanho wa Taala to shower his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of their
own slaves of Allah. First and foremost, I advise myself and then all of you all present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and to be conscious of him gender wise, during every single second of our lives, if we wish to attain success in this world, as well as the here after May Allah subhana wa Jalla make us all from the people of taqwa and maintenance behind them or dynamic us from the victorious and successful ones me.
Buddy respected elders and brothers in Islam. It is incumbent upon us to thank Allah subhanho to Allah for the numerous bounties and favors that he eisah Virgil has conferred upon us. If you were to try and enumerate these blessings, as I say often and as our maker rightfully states, the noble Koran, we would fail miserably in an attempt to list down the blessings of Allah subhana wa deiner. He states in the noble Koran, we're in dunia Mottola, a lot of suha. If you were to try and enumerate the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you were to try and number the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala that you will not be able to encompass and cover all the blessings of Allah
subhanho wa Taala. And from these blessings is the fact that Allah azza wa jal keeps blessing us with seasons of goodness, seasons of opportunity to do more good deeds and secure amazing rewards from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because by the month of Ramadan, we cross by the amazing 10 days of dental hygiene, and now we are just a day away from a powerful day known as Ashura. Now, this day is the 10th day coincides with the 10th day Yamanashi the 10th day of the month of Allah Muharram of the month of Allah Muharram Muharram is from the sacred month says Allah subhanho wa Taala states in the noble Koran in it that the Shahada in the law is nashoba, Sharon Tiki tabula haoma Kala Casa
Mata minha or batroun. So from the months that are four months that are sacred months and from them this month of Muharram, the month of Allah Subhana Medina, and this particular day, Ashura is a special and powerful day. Now let's talk about this day. And in terms of this month, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he is reported to have said and if I'm not mistaken, the Hadith is recorded in either the book of Imam Bukhari Mr. Muslim Rahim Allah. He said a long while a value SLM is reported to have said that the best fast to fast the best fast after the month of Ramadan is the month of Muharram. The narration goes along the lines of these words, and for the individual who
fasts Ashura the decision about Allah tomorrow, according to local citing
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that the fasting of Ashura expedites the sins of your previous year.
just just just imagine, it's so amazing, just fasting one day and allies, the Virgin, the expats the sins of one whole year, may Allah subhanho wa Taala, open the doors of understanding for all of us, I mean, so going back in terms of the history of Ashura.
This was when the supervisor along while he was sending Migrator to Medina, this particular narration, he said a little while later, it was lm he enters Medina, and he finds the Jews fasting, they were fasting, the 10th day of Muharram, Ashura
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he asked them, Why are you fasting on this particular day? The incident the narration goes along the lines of these words. So they are who the Jews they inform Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it was on this day, that Allah subhanho wa Taala say a prophet Musa alayhi salatu salam from Freetown. It was on this day that Allah azza wa jal say Prophet Moses Musa alayhi salatu salam from Freetown, in the sense that was the day that Allah azza wa jal destroyed for our ground for our and this is why in terms of, you know, rendering gratitude unto Allah, as a celebration, we are fasting Ashura. Now the sort of life that Allahu Allahu Allah
Selim looked at his Sahaba the companions and he said, We deserve to celebrate more than you all in terms of Musa alayhis salam because we have a closer link to mousseline salatu salam. So he commanded the Sahaba to fast Ashura, and he said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam also fast the 10th day of Muharram Ashura, and he said a long while evaluating them in general, because there are other narrations as well, to oppose the Jews and Christians in terms of what they do. So he said a long while evaluates, and I'm very firmly stated that if I were to live the following year, I would fast the ninth as well as the 10th of Muharram. Tasha and Ashura in the sense the ninth the day before
Ashura to oppose what the Jews are doing, to oppose what the Jews are doing, but then sadly, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he did not live until the next year. But nevertheless, he had stated very clearly that most definitely, if I were to witness the next year, I would fast the day before Ashura, ie the ninth of Muharram. So based on this particular narration, scholars, Rahim Allah they state that it is highly recommended that an individual fasts, the ninth of Muharram, as well as the 10th of Muharram. That is the best and if that is not possible, then you fast the 10th of Muharram and the 11th of Muharram. So basically, according to the local citing the ninth of
Muharram is today, the 10th of Muharram is tomorrow and the 11th of Muharram is day after tomorrow. So those of you who are fasting today well and good Alhamdulillah so it is upon you to pass today as well as tomorrow. Say for some reason you are not able to fast today, then you're supposed to fast tomorrow as well as day after tomorrow in a move to be different from the Yahoo, the Jews, and worst case situation say perhaps if you find it difficult to fast two days, then it is upon you to at least fast the most special of these three days, the 10th day that is tomorrow. Insha Allah Allah.
So this was the day my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, the 10th of Muharram, Ashura, Allah subhanho wa Taala, say Musa Elena salatu salam from Sierra Leone, as you all know,
the story of Musa alayhis salam, Allah azza wa jal saved him as well as Israel in Israel, they were the tribe of musala His wrath was lamb. Israel, was none other than the Prophet Yaqoob Allah hisako ceram. And as for the meaning of Israel, it is like just as how we have gibreel Deborah l gibreel. Mika IL, it stands for Abdullah in the sense slave of Allah because he in the Hebrew language means Allah. So Israel in means Abdullah, the slave of Allah gibreel. Jabra l means the slave of Allah, Mika in slave of Allah, all synonyms to Abdullah in the Arabic language. So Israel was none other than yaku. Allah is not wassalam prophet Jacob and benu Israel is they were all the children of
Israel in Alinea. salatu salam, as you all know, this took place during the time of the Prophet Yusuf Alayhi. Salatu was Salam. When his brothers very swiftly when he his brethren, they dumped him into the boat in the bottom of a, an abandoned well, a caravan comes about, they find him in the in the well, they take him out and they do not return him back home. It was not a rescue team, but rather, they took him and they sold him in the marketplace as a slave. And this he was in. He was sold as a slave in in, in Egypt. He was sold as a slave. And then as you all know the story he was he grew up and the lady of the house tries to seduce him. He fears about subhanho wa Taala so
obviously he stayed away from it, resulting in that lady lady, plotting against use of Allah wa Salaam, hatching a plan against Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam and she had him thrown into prison. He remained in prison for many years. But let me preface the journey with icynene. He remained in prison for many years, until finally the king he sees a dream. He sees a dream and no one was able to interpret that dream. And then use of Allah He Surat wasallam was able to interpret the dream and use of Allah salat wa salam was brought out he used a virus that was
I wanted the king to proclaim his innocence to the masses and the king proclaim the innocence of use of it. So that was a lamb and use of Allah is not wassalam was appointed as a minister of finance and treasuries, if you will.
The story goes on, use violence that was Salam.
He controls the treasuries and finance of that particular land. And there was this huge drought that hit the lands neighboring missile, neighboring Egypt, so much to the extent that the family of use of Allah salat wa salam, they were also affected very badly. They come to Egypt seeking help from us valleys, route wassalam, Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, he had a plan in motion, he put the plan in motion time does not permit Time is of the essence I am not, you know, intending to go into the story of use of Allah wasallam we will be more or less focusing on the story of Musa alayhis salaam wa sallam. Nonetheless, he planned it in such a way where he got down his family, his family, his
brethren and his mother and father to Egypt. And at that point, they sought the forgiveness of use of Allah He salat wa salam, he did not harbor any hatred towards them or any vengeance towards them. As Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the Noble Quran he stays latter three by Allah Coolio, there shall be no reproach against you all on this day, he forgives them, and they all live in Egypt. They all live in Egypt. They live happily. They live happily they were enjoying life in Egypt. They were living very comfortably Alhamdulillah until the era of Iran came about until the era of Iran came about Iran was an oppressor a dictator, an evil tyrant. He announced to the people that I he claimed
divinity that I am God, I need to be worshipped the rivers of Egypt flow under me, all of you have to worship me. He was an oppressive tyrant, he started to oppress the masses at large, and especially the venue Israel who admits the people of Egypt at that time, he started to oppress them so much until the extent at one point he saw a dream feel around he saw a dream where a man from Venezuela in came about, in the sense he was born, a child was born and this child grows up to become a strong individual and because of this individual, he loses his power, his authority over Egypt he sees a dream. And this dream petrifies him so much to the extent that he issued a command,
an order that all the male children have been to Israel should be executed should be slaughtered Henceforth, but then the people of Egypt, the cops contiune they had a need towards when Israel because when Israel as they were in general, intelligent craftsmen, and they used to be very hard working. So they had a need towards Israel towards the people of Israel, especially towards the male's of Israel in. And now when this command of Iran was issued to slaughter all the male children of Israel that resulted in the womenfolk increasing the Israel and the people of Egypt had no need towards the women folk of Israel, he they needed strong men. So they all approached Iran and said, I
think it is better that they said that we think it is better that you rethink this order that you have issued. If not, we would only have the female folk of Israel wise we need the males of Israel in Sofia around, he issued a command where the male children of Israel should be slaughtered every other year. So one year the children would be spared, and the next year The following year, the children would be slaughtered. So in this particular situation, the year during when the children were being spared, the brother of Mousavi, salatu salam Harun Allah, Allah wa sallam was born, and the following year when the children were being slaughtered, that was the year Allah subhanho wa
Taala had decreed that Musa alayhi salaatu wa Salaam should be born. That was the year now the mother of musala. That was awesome. She was extremely worried because the forces of fear around they were rampaging all over the place. They had eyes and ears everywhere. They had spies in different locations because there was a grand reward that was announced. If anyone were to bring information of a newborn child. They used to barge into the houses and slaughter the children in a very oppressive way because of the authority given to them by fear around the mother of Iran was extremely worried for her newborn child. So much to the extent that
Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the number four and that he inspired the mother of Masada salat wa salam, to feed him and if there were any situation, or if she were to fear of something to put the child into the river, ie the river Nile. So what the mother of musala surat wasallam did was that she made a basket, a box like a
thing where she used to keep musala his ratusan in that particular basket, and she used to tie it up to a tree close to her house. And whenever she felt that the child was
Hungary used to pull the basket towards a feed the child and afterwards place the child once again in the basket. One day the road breaks. And Allah azzawajal his plan is obviously the supreme plan the plan of all plans. His plan his decree was that the basket should float by the Palace of Freetown and the wife of around she picks up the basket. In other words, the maids and the servants who used to work for her. They picked up the basket and take it to her. She sees the child and Allah subhanho wa Taala instills in her heart, love for that child. So much should you extend that the minute for around here heard about it, he comes immediately and he orders for the executioner for
his forces to get rid of the child to kill the child. She intervenes and she says don't kill him. He's a coolness to our eyes for a tiny lever like Lata Cthulhu as a young Fina anata who don't kill him, he will be a coolness to our eyes. He may perhaps benefit us or we can adopt him as a son. She intervenes and she convinces fear around, she dissuade him from killing the baby musala he Serato Sam according to the plan of allies of a Jedi he grows up in the palace of fear around that fear around had this hatred towards him at all times because he noticed that musala is rat wassalam he had a liking towards when we saw him. He used to support Israel, he used to spend a lot of time with
Israel. So there was always this hatred and doubt within the heart around but he could not do anything to Musashi Serato Sam, because obviously, he had agreed with his wife to look after the child and bring up the child until one fine day now masala is salatu salam has become a strong individual as Allah subhanho wa Taala states in the noble Koran. He goes by the marketplace is walking by the marketplace.
And he notices two men fighting two men fighting one was from Israel. And the other was from the Egyptians. Two men fighting and this was because the Egyptian had tried to command and order the the Israeli the venue Israel the person from Israel to come work by him and he was forcing him to come work by him was the the person from Venezuela and he was refusing and because of this, the Egyptian started to beat him up.
The person from Israel Israel tonight he looks at Musa alayhis salam and tells him yamasa please help me he cries out for help. Now musala salatu salam was an individual he could not tolerate injustice and oppression. He rushes to the aid of that Israelite of that person from Israel and he pushes the Egyptian aside as Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the noble for an la casa Mustafa cabo la, he pushes the man and as we just mentioned, Mussolini's Rotherham was a very strong individual. The minute he pushed a man due to the blow, the man fell to the ground dead, he immediately fell to the ground dead. Now when musala wassalam observed this, he cries out hard I mean, how many shaytaan
this is indeed the the mischeif the handiwork of Shere Khan. This is indeed the mischeif and handiwork of Chopin and he rushes out of Egypt because he knows that this was the opportunity that Iran would wait for to seize Him and perhaps even kill him. So musala is Rossum, fearing for his life, he rushes out of Egypt as Allah Subhana Allah mentions in the noble Koran, and we know long story cut short he makes his way towards madeon, where he marries the daughter of an individual by the name Shoei. There are certain scholars who say that it was none other than Prophet schreib Allah hisako ceram. And there are others who say that it was a righteous man who went by the name shipe.
he marries one of this one of this man's daughters, and he lives for a long time with that man, as the contract between Musa alayhis salam and this individual schreib basically the matter that he paid was that he would work for that man for eight years for eight years. And that man, he went on to inform us that wassalam if you can complete 10 then it is the best and musala Serato salon he remained with this man, he and his wife he remained with this man or his father in law for 10 years for 10 years. And after 10 years, he makes his way back to Egypt. On his way as we all know Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in Surah Surah Taha were halfway through the journey. Musa Allah
Mussolini salatu salam was appointed as a prophet but Allah subhanho wa Taala Musa alayhis salaam wa sallam was appointed as a prophet by Allah azza wa jal, and he was commanded by Allah subhanho wa Taala, to go to Pharaoh around and to invite fear around to the truth. Moosa Allah is Allah to salatu salam. He implodes, and he asks Allah subhanho wa Taala to give him Harun his brother Harun as a support
Soraka he states rubbish roughly salary wise sadly, Emery was Lula OData melissani of kuqali which I'll leave a zero Minelli HTTP s ri Alondra. He makes too much Allah to make eloquent words flow out of his tongue, because he's obviously now going to go and invite fear around. And he knew that Iran would pull up this case against him that he had murdered an individual even though it happened accidentally. He did not do it intentionally. But he feared that and he also wanted someone to support him. So he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to support him by appointing his brother Harun AlLahi wa sallam as a prophet as well. As Virgil answers the door of musala he salatu salam and Musa
alayhis salam, he goes with his brother Harun, after reaching Egypt, and informing his brother Harun both of them they go to around to invite him to the truth. He goes to the coat off around and allies of a gel had blessed Mussolini's Rotterdam with two miracles to science to show fear around.
There was at a heated discussion between Iran and Musa alayhi salatu salam were around he states. Oh, you have come back. Now. Why 10 years back, you killed an individual and you ran, you are a murderer. He started saying all kinds of things, not realizing that musala hisako salam had gone to the aid of an individual and accidentally killed the other man. Why it's fear around being the oppressive tyrant he was he had murdered so many children. He had slaughtered so many young, innocent children intentionally and there was no one to question him. But here he is questioning Musa alayhi salatu salam, Musa alayhis salam invites him to the truth.
And whilst inviting him around, asked him, okay, fine, you're brought the message, but I need proof. Show me proof. Perhaps you have some science to show me to make me believe in your message. Then musala salatu salam, he had a stick with him and as long as he put it to the ground, and that stick immediately became a writhing serpent, a huge snake, a huge Cobra. Now if Iran was witnessing the Assign, it was a stick, a wiser watcher, he changed the properties of that stick a nonliving thing becomes a living serpent, and then musala his salat wa salam. He puts his hand into his coat in one narration in one ayah it states that he put it by his bosom in another. It states that he put it
into his pocket and he takes his hand out and it is now glittering and shining away.
It was glittering and shining away to science bestowed upon musala surat wasallam. But Allah subhanho wa Taala. But even after witnessing such manifests, and clear signs, for our own cries out, Oh, you are a magician. You have come with magic, to hoodwink me and to take away my seat of power, my authority. And he sets a challenge. He sets a challenge he calls magicians, the magicians that he knew from all over the lands of Egypt, to compete with musala salat wa salam. And a day he was set a day he was appointed where there was going to be a showdown between Musa alayhis salaam and the magicians of Iran. There was a huge reward promised for the magicians, if they succeeded in beating
Moosa Allahu salatu salam. The day comes about, and people gather from all over the land to witness this event. It was a big day musala he salat wa salam, he stands in front of the magicians.
And the magicians they throw down their sticks. scholars of the sea they write that there were nothing other than pieces of rope that were tied to sticks and they were moving it around. They were fooling the eyes of the people, just as how magicians do today.
For something similar to sleight of hand, they were fooling the eyes of the people, the audience, the spectators, and everybody. All the individuals who are witnessing this It was as if the the pieces of rope had turned into serpents and they were wriggling on the ground. It looked as if it seemed as if they were writhing serpents. musala is Rotherham The minute he witnessed the spectacle, there was fear in his heart, but almost behind it Medallia reassured His Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and he threw his staff down, he threw his stick down immediately by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala that stick it changed into a huge serpent. And not only that, it gobbled up all
the pieces of rope that were on the ground. It turned into a huge serpent and gobbled up all the pieces of rope that were falsely littering on the ground. The minute the magician's witnessed this, they knew that this was not sleight of hand. This was not some trick of illusion. They knew this was the real thing and they immediately
fell down in such a way that they immediately fell down in frustration and they cried out we believe in the Lord of Moosa, we believe in the Lord of Harun. alayhi wa Salatu was salam, the Minister our witness this he cries out now, Who gave you permission, he cries out to his magicians Who gave you permission to believe in the Lord of Musa and Harun?
Look at his arrogance. Look at his pride. He even expects people to come and ask his permission before bringing in a man in the last behind Masada before believing in Allah, the true Allah, you have to ask for permission. This was his arrogance. And this is why he at one point stated and Akuma Allah, I am your Lord the Most High worship me, Lord me. These were the statements made by fear around he was such an arrogant and oppressive tyrant.
He immediately cries out to all of his magicians. So you have believed in the Lord of Moosa and Harun, you have to pay the consequences now, you have to face the consequences.
I am going to slaughter each and every one of you. I am going to cut your hands and your feet off and crucify you. And he did it.
scholars of the Sierra mention that these magicians in the morning they were magicians.
Obviously denying Allah subhanho wa Taala but towards evening they became strong believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala and they were martyred. La Aqua. They were martyred.
Time passes for our increases his persecution and punishment upon the new Israel as they were finding it very difficult to remain in Egypt until finally the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala the sense that they should leave Egypt they should leave Egypt musala is ratha Salam was asked was commanded by Allah subhanho wa Taala to gather the money we saw the children of Israel and all leave Egypt.
masala is Rotherham. When Knight approached, he gathered the Israel and he leaves Egypt, he was informed by Allah subhanho wa Taala that Iran would chase after him. They leave Egypt and they had some scholars state toward the east and some scholars say towards the west, they were heading out from Egypt when you're around, gets wind of the fact that that musasa wassalam had gathered the venue Israel and that they had left Egypt. He immediately mustered his army 1000s and 1000s of soldiers all of his forces, and he starts to chase behind Musa alayhi salatu salam and Ben Israel until finally they reach the ocean. They reach the ocean, and now they were at despair. The people
of Mussolini's ratusan who are here they start to cry out, oh, we are in a predicament. Now we are going to be caught in front of us it is the ocean if we tread the ocean we are going to drown most definitely and behind us is fear out and his toe says he is going to kill us all. It is going to be a massacre. My dear brothers, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam that day, he was young my Ashura that was the 10th of Muharram.
That was the day when Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded Musa la salatu salam to strike the ocean, and the minute he struck the ocean, masala salat wa salam, the minute his stick struck the ocean, the ocean split into two pathways. According to the scholars of tafsir. There were 12 pathways that were formed. In the sense, the water of the ocean split, and there were was so high of water. And it was so easy for benefit for the benefit of the children of Israel with Musa alayhis salam wa Salaam to cross the ocean. Musa alayhis salam was informed by Allah subhanho wa Taala that the ocean would remain until fear out made his way. And when he reached half way in the middle of the ocean, the
water would come crashing down upon him and drown him. musala salatu salam and why they make it onto the other side around reaches the brink of the ocean. And he cries out to his house says can you see my power? Look at my power. It is because of me that the ocean has split like this. It is for me and my houses. You can all make your way. And he cries out to his forces to start taking
each force, each flank of the army took a pathway and they were making their way onto the other side. When they reach the middle of the ocean. The command of Allah subhanho wa Taala was that the oceans would come crashing down upon them, the walls of water came crashing down upon them. And this was on Yom Ashura, the 10th of Muharram
around was about to drown. He was about to drown. He was in the middle of the ocean. He looks around, he sees his forces. He sees his power, his mic, everything gone all in fragments in pieces. And now he cries out, he cries out, I believe in the Lord of Musa and Harun. I believe the Lord of Musa and Harun now this was at the point when he respected elders and brothers in Islam.
He was facing death, Mila comatose in front of him. This is a point known as a Ferrara according to the conditions of Toba. According to the conditions of Toba, there are certain conditions laid down for individuals Toba to be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And from these conditions is the fact that you have to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala because the concept of Toba is to turn to Allah. Toba is an Arabic term which means to turn to Allah IE to turn back to Allah in repentance seeking repentance from the conditions of tober is that the Toba must take place before Varvara before your soul reaches your galette, ie before you witness molecule mouth before death comes in
front of you. Because after witnessing death, you can cry tears of blood, but your Toba will not be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is one and number two before the sun rises from the west, proposing the norm where it is rising from the east. Closer to the day of the AMA from the major signs of the day of the AMA is that the sun will rise from the west. No sooner the sun rises from the west. The dose of Toba will be slammed shut. And even if you were to cry tears of blood, the Toba will not be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if you're around he was in the state of Florida. He had witnessed death he had witnessed everything he had witnessed so many signs of Allah
subhanho wa Taala and now he cries out now after massacring and slaughtering so many children after persecuting Israel ill after doing all that he did, after claiming divinity
worse than conference shirk is to claim the obviously to claim divinity. He wanted all of them to obey Him and worship Him. He slaughtered the magicians who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And now at this point, he cries out I believe in the Lord of Moosa and Harun Allah azza wa jal was not going to accept the Toba of jabril alayhi salatu was Salam descends, he comes down in blazing speed, he comes down and forces water down the mountain around your your Toba. Your Eman is not worthy to be heard in the heavens or fit around because you are such a dictator such an oppressive tyrant, a sinner, one who transgress the limits of Allah subhanho wa Taala My dear respected elders and
brothers in Islam. Yes, Allah azza wa jal is the most forgiving the Most Merciful rereading the Noble Quran in so many places in the law of rural Rahim in the la hora Rahim Indeed Allah is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. Each time you open up the Quran we say
Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
And he himself states in the noble Koran nebia eva de
de la fu Rafi, Omaha mozzarella, why don't you send them in for my slaves nebia Abadi, oh my slaves in the ANOVA for Rahim Indeed, I am the most forgiving, the Most Merciful.
But it is not upon us to take advantage of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is not upon us to play games with the mercy of Allah azza wa jal because in the very next ayah Allah azza wa jal states were another the hula hula Aleem and also inform them that my punishment My Torment is an extremely painful torment. So it is a balance between Raja and house between hope and fear. We have to have hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala because it is not befitting and it is not appropriate upon an individual to lose hope in the mercy of Allah azza wa jal, we should never ever despair in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala we should always have hope in the mercy of Allah
subhanho wa Taala. But Likewise, we need to fear the anger of others. Lots of loss of Hannah Horta, Hannah,
around he took advantage of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
There were so many signs shown unto him.
So many signs, not only the serpent, not only the hand of Musa alayhis salatu salam, there were even other signs. Allah azza wa jal showed him so many signs. But he was oblivious to all of these signs, he remained oblivious, he was in Oblivion, he rejected the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah azza wa jal opened the doors of understanding for all of us, I mean,
so Allah subhanho wa Taala his plan his decree was that for our should be drowned. And as Allah subhanho wa Taala states in the Noble Quran, he preserved the body of fear around until today as a sign for those who come after it is a sign for us to look at his body. To hear about the story of Musa alayhis salaam and derive lessons, we should not be arrogant, we should not be proud, we should not remain oblivious of the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala we should be humble, we should seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala there are many lessons obviously to be derived from the story of Musa
latos law, so coming back to Israel
after that which took place in terms of their encounter with Iran, they now travel with musasa. That was Iran. And they were a nation. so stubborn. They also had witnessed so many signs, so many signs. the help of Allah azza wa jal was with them throughout their journey, but they remained a stubborn nation. They kept questioning musala hisako salam, they refuse to go with Musa AlLahi wa sallam, they would stay away from musala salatu salam, at one point when Musa alayhis salam went to speak to Allah subhana wa Taala
they started worshipping a calf, a calf made out of gold, made out of jewellery, they started to worship that calf, a calf made by an individual by the name semidry. Just before that, they were crossing a particular village after this encounter with around and they saw the remains of idols in that particular village. They all go to Musa alayhis salam and tell him or Moosa just as how these people had these idols to worship can be also put up some idols to worship alongside with Allah subhanho wa Taala. This made Musa alayhis salam so angry, so angry, said how on earth after witnessing so many signs of Allah that you want to now associate partners and allies, the Virgin,
you want to worship sticks and stones beside Allah subhanho wa Taala. This was Israel in this was the yahoos, the Jews, and this is why our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them that we deserve, we are more deserving to fast on this day and celebrate this day because of our link with musala hisako Salam musala usato ceram was from the Mojave Dune from the Manassas. He did not associate partners unto Allah subhanho wa Taala. He was not such an individual. He did not ascribe partners unto allies the virgin likewise you and I, we do not ascribe partners unto Allah subhanho wa Taala we believe in Allah and Allah alone, and we follow His Beloved Prophet Muhammad
sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wasallam we do not indulge in things that displease Allah subhanho wa Taala. We do not indulge in innovations that our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has warned us against.
And when we talk about Yama Ashura, we have to be extremely careful that we stick to that which Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left us with, as you can see, this is the history of Ashura. This is the history of Ashura, and according to certain scholars of Tafseer, like Mr. macabre and others, they also state that it was on the 10th of Muharram. It was on the day of Ashura that Allah azza wa jal save new Khalid salat wa salam as well. It was on the 10th day, Allah azza wa jal made the waters recede and decreed that the ship of Mousavi Surat wa salam should come to rest on al Judy on Mount Judy. It was on the 10th of Muharram Yama Ashura. So, from this, we understand that the
history of Ashura it goes way back, way back. And we fast because so why is wrong while evaluation and faster and because he commanded all of us to fast as well because of the fact that we deserve to celebrate
Allah subhanho wa Taala, saving Musa alayhis salam wa sallam much more than the year who deserve to celebrate that. So we should stay away from innovations as you can, as you might be aware, there are many innovations that have cropped up in terms of yom Ashura.
We do not beat ourselves up. We do not have big celebrations nothing. We will not light up our houses we don't do all of this for your Maharashtra. What has been reported to us from the supervisor Allahu Allahu Allah wa sallam is too fast. We become we make ourselves closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala by following the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we prove our love Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by following Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is how we prove our love for Allah while
not by indulging in innovations, because after all, we know the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in terms of innovations, Bakula beatin Bala wakulla be the Ansan Bala every innovation is a misguidance wakulla Bharati phenol, and every misguidance is in the blazing Inferno of Johanna May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all from the blazing fires of Johanna I mean,
so many respected elders and brothers in Islam.
Hold fast and to the tune of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam holdfast under the teachings of Islam do not stray from the sin of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and do not indulge yourself or yourselves in innovations. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So like I said at the beginning, those who are fasting today well and good Alhamdulillah This is according to the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you're supposed to fast the nine
of Mahara and that is today and tomorrow the 10th of Muharram. Those who missed today, you may fast tomorrow and they asked her tomorrow to be in contrary to that which the Yahoo to do because the Jews they only fast the 10th of Muharram that is tomorrow they only fast one day. So called the teachers or supervisor Allahu alayhi wa sallam, we do exactly the opposite by fasting two days, either one day before or one day after, worst case, due to some reason, some excuse you find it difficult to fast two days, then at least fast yom Ashura to avail of the amazing rewards promised to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah azza wa jal open the doors of understanding for all of us
mean he stood behind him who was either forgive all of our sins man, he accepted our good deeds. And just as how he united us here this Friday, made united in the gardens of gentlemen, our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I mean worship Allah and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen
