Mr. Manuel Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah after the Salah what a term with the slim Ummah beret brothers and sisters Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. As you can see, we continue with our discussion on the women mentioned in the Koran. We are now coming towards the mother and sister of Musa alayhis salaam which has a fantastic story. The yet that highlight the mother as well as the sister of mozarella Islam is just truly beautiful in the Quran, in sooth of puzzles is where we will primarily focus our attention on and that will also lead us into the story of Bill piece. And once we get there in sha Allah,
I'll introduce who she is the queen or the Queen, build peace will introduce who she is the time period that she arrives, why she is mentioned in the Quran. She has several Aliette in Sunita Neville in particular, that her story is mentioned. So we'll get into all of that inshallah. So let's, let's begin. So our last conversation, as you see on the screen, we were talking about the wife of the IC, so let me go back to that. So there you go, diseases wipha. So like her and the ladies, and we talked about who these individuals were. We looked at all of the verses that mentioned the wife of the disease and how eventually at the end, she became Muslim, at least some of
their intimate they mentioned that. The fact that she mentioned Allah's name, she admits her faults, all of this kind of steers towards the probability that she did become.
Yes, sorry, you're just your PowerPoint is not moving.
It's not moving. Yeah. Can you move out now? Yeah, no, I see you inequity. Change that PowerPoint. There you go. Perfect.
Okay, so this is okay. I don't have to go in full screen then. Yes, that's good. Okay. So
her presence is mentioned here in sudo. So we've already talked about that. And we basically just conclude that conversation so for those of you that are joining in, here's a quick recap of what we've been talking about the king asked to the woman What did you get when you tried to seduce Yusuf Ali salaam Davis Clyde Allah forbid we know nothing indecent.
Marilyn narrowly Minsu that we don't know anything about him that is indecent. Then the Chiefs minister's wife admitted and hassle help and are all what to Warren Neff. See a stepson, I tried to
seduce him, but he is surely truthful. And I have sought help I know what to who UNEF see what you know who Lemina saw the pain. So after all was said and done.
Her presence in the poor n is not meant to imply the evil nature of all women, or in what is mentioned in this story here but rather the different possible distractions that society in general can present and the need to repel them. That's really the main purpose of her story mentioned here. Right. It's for us to also see that you know, this
He's here a group of women had this like challenge this test that was posing for them, how some of them responded, how some of them confronted that that situation? And what was the appropriate way to deal with that? The Islamic way to deal with that the Quranic way to deal with that. And it's just like how our Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us that, you know, ultimately all of this leads to some form of Zina. And when I say Zina, we're not talking about adultery in and of itself, but even the things that lead to that. And so not being not controlling the eyes, not controlling the conversation, when socializing becomes too much, and across a certain borders and things like that,
once you get into that
area of the conversation, where the probability of somebody falling into some kind of mistake, some kind of sin, that's what we learned from the surah and how to deal with them how to respond and how to repent. You know, at the end of the day, the way from Pharisees, she repented, like she admitted, she says, an apostle Hopley has has like now the truth came out and out or whatever and Nipsey she says, I'm the one that tried to seduce him, she admits it. We're in the whole lemon of Saudi thing. She clearly is his name. She clears his name completely when he is from among civilians that are truthful. So maleness power with Allah keep us strong, and continue to allow us to learn some of
these beautiful lessons from these stories. Which leads us to the next figure, if you'd like in our journey through the women of the Koran, which is of course the mother and sister of Musa alayhis salam.
Okay. Musa is mother's own is the only woman in the Quran, Teresa received receive some kind of divine inspiration. Where do we get that from? This word right here, ready see that?
That word? What Oh, Hainan.
Our hyena comes through the word way, way. We all know what that means. Literally, it means the revelation. So what we're learning from here is that in this surah, there's a different type of revelation that's happening to the believers. Musa alayhis, salaam mother is a believer.
So Allah says that we inspired her in a way that was befitting to her, it's really important not to confuse this kind of inspiration to what is revealed to the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam, why, because I really am I make a distinction. I mean, he's clearly a prophet. He's getting Koran and direction and guidance for all of mankind. And he's given exact wording is giving exact a yet and exact wording to use to proclaim to announce, to teach, to call towards and so on. Like that message of him being a prophet and messenger puts that level of inspiration in a completely different category, as opposed to here. And what we learned from this also, is that believers in general, do
gain a kind or a level or a type of inspiration from Allah. I don't mean that Allah is giving us why every now and then, what I mean is that when you have that, that gut feeling inside, and when you feel that sense of inspiration, motivation, when you have that good feeling in you, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has guided you and brought you to a place where you are experiencing and feeling peace, contentment, love and gratitude, appreciation, all of those wonderful things. And you look back at your life, and you realize, like Subhanallah, I really worked for this, I really did everything in the book that I could to achieve this. And you're grateful to Allah for that. All of
that is a kind of ye in the sense that you've been inspired. You've been motivated, you've been encouraged, you've been pushed, you've been placed in a place and a time in your life that you've never experienced before. So think of it that way. It's more of an inspiration and a motivation for the believer. And it's also a sense of reassurance. Some of them are lemma have different names for this based on specific Hadith. So an example of that is the whole concept of a pharaoh set. Profit highly sought was salam told us that the federal set of a belief or is the hap, but keep in mind some of the scholars also say like, it's not something that you should hold on to and depend on too
all the time, when you have that good feeling. So feticide is like the good feeling from within to depend
On that each and every time when it's when you when you need to make a decision when you need to decide what is best for you, when you need to decide, okay, when I have these two decisions, what is going to be the right one like don't depend on that particular each and every time. But it's interesting. So what oh Hina Isla on me Musa see her name SOC mentioned here, so she's called the mother of Musa
and alerian. So here she was inspired the mother of musanze, and to nurse him and other learning for either, Dr. Lai, but when you fear for him, not, if you fear for him, See, when you fear for him, meaning like, when you're worried that he's starving, he's not getting the right vitamins, or she's not able to produce any milk for this baby. Put him into the river. Now, we have to talk about this because
this is difficult. So when you're in the state of fear,
ALLAH inspires her to do what? For LP feel him. Take a look at that Subhanallah then put her into the yam. Yam literally means like a stream. Okay, water that's constantly flowing is called em. So obviously here, it's referring to the Nile River, right? It's constantly moving.
So that is what she is ordered to do. When she's in the state of fear and she's scared. Question is now why would you tell somebody to do that? than in the state of fear? To tell them to do something that ultimately brings more fear? makes them more you know, uneasy, more afraid, more worried, more concerned? Like, how do you like is that the direction that Allah wants us to go? We learn something.
When human beings think or believe what is right, that's one thing.
But when Allah subhanaw taala gives us rules and directions. That's a different thing. And they don't always coincide. They're not always going to be on the same level. So I know Quran let tells us and sootel baka quotevalet Khun Patel, who are called Hulagu. why certain tokra Who che or highroller Kumar, TSA and Taheebo che, who shot we'll look below who your LM one two letter LM
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that, you know, he has prescribed for you something that in and of itself, it may not be appealing, it may not be something that you're looking forward to Excuse me.
Sorry about that. So
it may not be something attractive, but you try your best to do it. You try your best to see good in it are certain to crochet, or who will hire or Lego. You might dislike something but it's actually good for it were certain to Bucha who shovel Lego and you might actually love something. But it's harmful to you will love who we are. And if you think there was an important part of that verse in Surah Al Baqarah is the ending. A lot of people they focus on the first two instructions. If you dislike something there might be good in it. And if you like something that might be harming and we focused on concentrate on what at the very end is the heart of the verse, it's the most important
part will love who we are and then what until later Allah, Allah has knowledge, you don't know you don't have knowledge. So for either 50 Aileen. She is immediately inspired to trust Allah's instructions for LP phillium LP, through literally throw him into this river, and it's moving and it's passing and it's gushing in front of her. So that's
the determination, the unbelievable reliance on her toe what code her patients, her determination, into wanting to do what is right for Allah subhanho wa Taala is truly remarkable. That is what makes Musa alayhis salam, who he is, he gets it from his mom.
And then obviously later on, we've already talked about the story of ESEA or the Allah marinha and he starts to get similar things that he was instilled with when he was a baby from his once he starts to get similar things now from his stepmom. So, either 50 or a p phillium. Then here are the two things that mothers go through in life.
especially when they have kids, what are the two three things that mothers worry about the most?
always fearful. If your children are okay, if they're safe, and well attack is any, don't be sad. They're always sad, sad, in what sense? Anything that hurts their child that instills fear in their child that puts their child in danger in any way, shape or form. That is always a reason to cause enormous and immense amount of pain, fear, sadness, you name it, especially for mum. So, in this case here, while at the huffing, while attack has me, so don't be afraid. And don't be sad. Listen to what Allah reassures her with, in now rod do II lake was there, you know who mean and Mussolini, we will return him to you. And we will make him from amongst the messengers. So take a look at the
translation. So here we are,
we will certainly return him to you and make him from amongst the messengers. Tell me
if you are in the position of Musa alayhis salam
Is that what's on your mind? You just took your child, put him into a river,
you have no idea where he is.
Where he is going. Later on from the sister you'll see.
Musalla insulin sister now the mother eventually tells her like to follow this basket, follow this child and see where it's going. So we're going to see how she does that in a second. The point is USM. Is that what's on your mind? Is that what you're thinking about? So it's like as if Allah saying, Okay, throw your child into this river. And by the way, don't be afraid. Don't be sad, like, just trust me. And I'll return him to you. He'll be a messenger. He's that's what's on her mind. She may respond and say, you know, yeah, I just want to make sure that he's okay. Like just returning to me. I want to like love him, raise him take care of him. It's my child. You know, I wasn't thinking
about him being a messenger. I wasn't thinking about him being a prophet.
Is that what's on her mind? And I think this is so remarkable, because it sets it steers the thought process not only of the mother, but just the mothers in general. And what we learn here is that the greatest honor
of a mother, what at least what it should be in the sight of Allah, the greatest honor is to see her child carrying and finding leadership in this Deen in Islam itself.
Absorbing learning, acquiring knowledge of the deed, doesn't matter what it is. Now, we're not saying that he has to be a half of the Koran, there has to be a scholar that he has to be what ever he or she does. But at the end of the day, they use that talent. They use that knowledge to serve a law's Dean. That's true honor. That's what we're seeing from you from this a from this whole incident here. And she's given the reassurance that because of her trust and her determination, to just trust Allah's instructions, Allah will return her. And in addition to that, Allah will honor her. What's the honor, it's the fact that she has now she will get a son that is going to be a
messenger. Now, put all those aside all of those wonderful lessons. Now as a mother.
She's got the reassurance of the most important thing. He's coming back to her. So she doesn't have to think about is he going to die? Is there going to like an alligator going to take him away? Like she's have to worry about any of that. Somebody's going to kidnap him. None of that? Because the love reassures her. You'll see your son again. You'll be reunited with him. Okay.
When did I was wife so Sal to the love Marina discovered Musa on the shore. Allah had to strengthen mooses mother's heart to make her a firm believer how we'll call it immoral to feed around Porter terrain in Li y la, la tokoto wasa environet own a toughy the WHO WELEDA whopping ly insurance. So look what happened here. This is Seo to the look marinha she's talking here. And she says
we'll call it a model interferons. So the wife of federal Cobra twine Lee Wallach, she says, Allah had she says that my Our eyes have become pleased in
honored to see him. It's become a source of joy for me and you, meaning me and you fit around.
Now, here's a quick question, who said this exact same statement in Quran. Somebody else said the exact same thing.
The wife of the disease, when she first laid eyes on use of Alayhis Salam as a slave being sold in the market, before she purchased him and took him over to the palace. This is the exact scene sentence, she says to her husband, the minister, that disease, cholera triennially well as Baronet owner tequila, who Wallander she says the exact same thing, maybe with hearing liquid for asiyah, or the Allah adds it to this word here students
led Takata louver. Now the wife of the disease does not say this sentence lead up to this is absent in that conversation. So why is it here, for the obvious reason, what was going around doing with children, he was killing them. He was killing the mothers and he was killing babies and children. So the first thing she says is, men, this baby here, wherever this child is in this basket, he's brought so much joy, and he's a source of comfort and pleasure for us. Don't kill this one, keep this one, I sat in the environment and the exact same response, perhaps he may be a source of joy for me and you to do not kill him, he may be useful to us, or we may adopt him as a son. So perhaps
you know, some of the other diseases, perhaps that maybe could not have children. And maybe his wife could not have children. So this was a way that they could have children, they found this one. So let's just take one in there. Well, hula is your room. And they say they were unaware of what was to come, I had no idea what this plan was,
so many things are happening here.
The first thing is her reaction, you have the wife of fit around, then you have the wife of their Aziz, the minister of Egypt in Surah, Yusuf, they both have the same mind when they see a child. They see love. And they appreciate that child, and they want the needle, they have this like connection, they want to have this child. And it's possible that in both of these scenarios, they could not have children. What some scholars also say is that nobody can guarantee themselves children anyway, all of that is a gift from Allah. So that could have been their reaction is that we don't know if we will ever have children. So our eyes just became attached to this individual, these
two kids, whether it's used to families that are most artists, it's a first response. The second is, obviously the beauty of use of RNA Salam does not compare to the rest of mankind.
But they're both beautiful, in some sense, right? They're both beautiful. And there's something special, there's something remarkable about both of these children, that Allah caused an acceptance in the hearts of the people. And in this case, these two mothers or these two women,
that they immediately loved and accepted that child, like they just had this connection. Nobody knows where this connection came from, how it happened. It's just something that I like them still. So
some of the scholars they said that this is one of the ways of how Allah prepped both of these stories of what was to come later. The wife of the disease had no idea that later on in that Surah later on in the sea life of use of Ireland, Jerusalem, how things would turn around and come back to her no matter what she said or did how Allah subhanho wa Taala would respond to them.
And in this case here
like she didn't have a clue well who malaria Sharon? Like they don't have a clue what is ahead of them with respect to finding this child Okay.
to me Musa fairly hot, being cared that little VDV Lola Roboto, and Isla behind Lita Khun, Amina, meaning the heart of Musa mother was empty. She would have almost disclosed it and we did not strengthen her heart so
she might be of those believers.
And if it wasn't, if it should be here, disclose it had We not strengthened her heart is how it's a better way of reading had We not strengthened
Have a heart so that she might be amongst the believers. Okay, so lots again happening here. So what is what's going on? Well, I have only Musa you see this word here guys? Oops, let's do the Arabic part first.
straight this way yeah, there we go. Okay, see that word students?
There we go.
Fu ad. That's heart.
Okay, that's interesting
isn't heart? Yes.
A couple of words in the Quran to describe heart. This is one of the most common that we know in the Arabic language is of course, Holborn. So what's the difference in terms of meaning? 101 is something that's moving back and forth at a rapid pace plus one is also used for repetition. So called balloon, the heart is called Pulse, because it's constantly beating. So it's constantly moving back and forth. Who add is the type of heart that is overwhelmed with fear and emotion.
That heart her heart is the see how it makes sense now to use for and to describe the heart of the mother here. Our heart became Fatiha, it was empty. Baddiel literally something a vessel that is dry and empty. Her heart became a vessel that was so last and empty. Why? You know some of our domestic that it's, it's very safe to assume. She cried. She worried she had sleepless nights on the online knows how long this went on for how long the journey from where she left us child go into the river. And when it was picked up at the Palace of fit around, knows what that distance was. We're going to have an idea maybe of how long the distance was very shortly when we get to the sister. But the
point is, she feels what every mother should fear would feel when they're separated from their child. They feel that emptiness. And Fouad also describes the heart that is just so fearful and scared and frightened. And it becomes overwhelming that their heart literally feels like it's skipping a beat, or it's it's still, like they just can't relax, they can't do anything they can't eat, they can't sleep, there's nothing that they can do. So that's the situation here for Musa, or at least the mother of Musala he served. So well. The only Musa incat that lead to PDBe, Lola Roboto, neurological rehab,
it was empty, that she would have almost disclosed it disclosed what
she would have almost given up. So here in Canada, the lead tubidy B means a couple of things. Number one, it could mean she almost like gave up and jump in a water and go find her child and bring him back. So she just couldn't handle it. So cada is the verb that's used when something is just about to happen and it stops. It's almost there. It's about to fall. It's you know, somebody standing on the edge, use CAD, they're almost fell over, but they're literally standing on the edge.
So she's in a state where literally, she could like, turn this whole thing around and go out of desperation, perhaps like any mother would, and just go and find her child.
The another meaning is that she almost gave it away that, you know, Allah inspired me to do this and he's going to return and come back to me as a messenger. That could happen. So we're just going to leave it and almost gave away what Allah inspired her to believe in. And when we say give it away, like she almost lost the trust or the connection to them a
little bit DB Lola Roboto Narela Colby have since a wording Subhanallah
had We not strengthened her heart
or this part here?
Had we not strengthened her heart?
The strength that a mother finds in desperate times is from Allah.
You know, when you're scrolling online, where the ex wherever, just anywhere online, you come across those videos of just mothers displaying an incredible level of strength,
commitment, affection, love, dedication, especially to their children. Like it can be anything I mean, we even see like in the animal world this happens right?
A long time ago, I saw this beautiful
video of a bird, the, you know, the mother bird, she extended her wings, and she kind of stretched it out. And it was pouring rain outside. And the person with the camera, took her finger and lifted underneath the wings of this mother, she's getting pounded with this with this rain, it's pouring and pouring on her. But beneath her wings, she extended why she had all her babies covered under her wings. So she's taking all the pain, she's getting herself soaked and drenched. But look, Allah gives this strength to mothers in particular, that it's only for them. It's only for them, you know, there's only so much that he might be able to stay in the hospital and watch his son or watch his
daughter, you know, and be by their bedside. And at some point, you know, Okay, I gotta go home, let me just try to rest and try to sleep. But I'm mothers. But there's a student there. And they're there 24 hours a day, they don't care if they can't sleep, they can't eat, they can't walk, they can't do anything. And another way of looking at that relationship that mothers have is
when she finds out that she's pregnant, how her reaction is to that, right? Most mothers, right? If not leader, the vast majority of them as soon as they find out, they immediately have this connection, and they fall in love with this child. And they develop this connection. You know, they're carrying this child for nine months. And so there's a special bond and relationship that Allah instills with her. As soon as this baby is born, she immediately goes into autopilot, loving and caring and developing this attachment for the child. For us as fathers like we have to train our minds and our hearts to do that. We have to stay involved, we have to like nurture, we have to try
different things and build that relationship. She has that already. So before the child is born, and even if she's separated from the child at some point in her life, Allah says Lola, a robot in Colombia. Here's the thing. Do you see the switch? Guys? Look at that?
What's the word that then Allah used for heart? Here?
I underlined Yeah, there. So look at the heart here, heart is mentioned twice. But it's two different words. Because here now, it wasn't just about the emotion, a lot took care of that already. Right? He says that, you know, we're gonna strengthen her. But you know, right now, the most important thing is, no matter what emotional state, her heart is in her heart has to be at least in one place all the time, which is she has to be a believer, she has to be mean, she has to be of somebody that trusts her faith with Allah. So beautiful. Full ad is not used here. Because it's not about the emotion anymore. Like whether you feel it or you don't. You have to trust Allah's
I think that's, that's truly one of the most amazing, amazing things that we learn
from the story of the mother on Saturday. So both aspects of her heart now is addressed the emotional part of it. And physically the heart itself, if there's no emotion, or you can't get control of that, okay, fine. What you must never do is never lose that hope. And that faith in Allah subhanaw taala. That's why qualities use hope is always used to address the heart itself, that it's alive, and it's beating and moving. And it's not focused on the emotional aspect of the heart. And you concentrate on the emotions of the heart, then you use for it, so that she might be firm, and she would be counted from amongst the believers.
So, eventually, after all of this was said and done, we'll call that lead off to here possibly. We'll call that lead to him posting. So later on,
in this whole story, the sister her only reference in this entire portion is the fact that
to get some sense of reassurance, so the next day, she says to her daughter falsely,
like go and follow step by step where this basket is gone. So she got that reassurance by asking the daughter to follow. And what she did is when she followed this basket, she did it in a very sleek way.
For basura to be here in June, welcome la Yarlung. Alright, so as she's following this back
Ask it. She's doing it in such a clever way that she's blending in with the people around Egypt like Subhan Allah like this daughter, she knew the ins and outs of the town. So she blend in. Because remember, she's coming from the outskirts of the city, that arms Palace is in the dead center, all the commotion, all the excitement, all the power, the security, everything is being monitored around that right? All the riches, all the wealth, everything of the whole country is there. Now you have this outsider, people know when an outsider comes to an area like this, so they can recognize and see like, Who's this girl? What is she doing here? Why did she come here? Where do you come from?
Who's your family? So in order to avoid all of that, we'll call it they have to hear posi for bussola to be here on June. So she was like veiled away from the eyes and recognition from anyone else around her. Nobody would would know that. Okay, this was an outsider, she blend in perfectly until she eventually saw when this basket was picked up by ESEA, somewhere at the palace, and that was it. She went back to her mom and give her the reassurance that he's okay. So, you learned from that that even sometimes if you need your family to kind of help you out to give you some kind of reassurance especially when it comes to family, that's okay too. Right within these parameters, of
Okay, that leads us to the next part of this journey. Now that Musa alayhis salam is in the palace, que
se Allah the Allahu Arnhem has him, she's taking care of him, she's praising him, she's doing all of this for him, right?
Eventually now, Musa alayhis salam continues, he matures and grows and so on. Now he's a full fledged adult. And incident happens. We all know
the incident in which one day Musa alayhis salam, he gets out into the city of Egypt. And he sees that there are two men arguing.
So one side is from amongst his own people, meaning he's an Israelite and the other side men share it. That's from the other side. So it's could be like a soldier of one of our islands guards or somebody like that right? So the guard is arguing with this slave or this you know member of Benny's throwing from the children of Israel, right? Then Israel.
So the going back at each other, and the man that the slave Shouts out to Musa and moves and he asked me to come and help him. So this man at that moment does not know who Silas time is. But he just recognizes that okay, his complexion he's also slave to Hey, you come help me against this. This security guards a soldier. When Musa alayhis salam now intervenes for what has Musa for call barley? Musa eventually like intervenes. This soldier gets like really physical Musa hits him the man falls to the ground and literally falls to his death.
And at that moment, Musa Allah Islam steps away.
First thing he does is he makes door this is called a or b in the volume to nursery for fairly power per level in the hole. Her photo Rahim says Oh Allah, I am a wrong door. Look at the heart of Musa alayhis salam.
He immediately admits and he says to Allah I'm the one who wronged myself vollum to NFC for the fiddly for her for Allah. He asked for all love Forgive me, it was just an accident when he thinks that and he's treating it as though like that accident is on me anyway. So Oh ALLAH forgive me. I'm the one who made the accident *a for Allah and Allah forgive them in the hula photo Rahim. And Allah is always the most forgiving and the Most Merciful hello to be in nee Paulo to be in need until ally followed up with Bhima and untie lay silent Akun right here only imaginary me. So he then he makes another door Oh Allah, whatever it is that you blessed me with don't make me so apparent
that I'm counted from amongst the criminals. Okay? So two things now. It asks Allah to forgive me with this mistake. Don't make me a criminal. Don't make me but you are living which by law may appear like I'm one of them. I only want to be considered and counted from once one of them. Fast forward now.
Eventually the word gets out that mozzarella he said Salam is the person who did this right. That same slave after Musa Ali Salam helped him he went his way Musa went his way the next following day.
Go. Musa alayhis salam, you know, he wakes up early in the morning sees the exact same thing happening. And same man is still arguing. The man eventually calls out musante slums name to means that now after the first incident when the second incident is happening, it seems like they got to know each other. So this man is shout out Musa alayhis salam 's name, and just says, you know, Musa, like, are you going to help me again, most of us like, you know, you're you're acting like shaitan. And you seem to be the kind of person that's always getting into a fight or getting to an argument. So the man didn't like that. And he says, you know, Musa, you're now do you want to show that you
are overpowering? Overly that you're jump out on? Like, you're somebody that can control me? Or are you going to be somebody that are is going to try and kill me. And just like how you did to that soldier you did yesterday. And once that happened, he gave it away. Now the word came out. The slave gave away Musa and Musa alayhis salam doesn't know what to do. He runs away he hides. Eventually, somebody that he knew that was working within the palace told him in the mela yet tell me you're all there because he yet to look for footage in me let him in on massive. He says that the whole administration of the palace got together. And they all decided to that there was a search warrant
out for you. And if they capture you, they're going to assassinate you, they're going to kill you.
When Musa alayhis salam heard that the man said to him, Get out of here, leave Egypt. i This is my best advice to you. So Musar, the 400 gem in her heart you find your Torah pub. Then Musa alayhis, salaam left Egypt, scared and they just says you know, all lodges give me the strength to put us all behind me. Or lemma tower Jaha till Paul Medina call Arsa or be a DNS Seville. The next day, he goes towards the city of Medina. And he says, Oh Allah just guide me in a way that I'd be useful to you.
Now, it's where this whole incident starts to unfold. There's an incident where
it happens where
Musa alayhis salam when he arrives in Midian. So just bear with me because I'm just setting the whole scene of when we get to this situation line. So there's that incident now where and we've already talked about this earlier on.
But we're starting to see now to understand how Musa alayhis salam meets his wife, okay, so Musa Ali's, in the city of Midian sees that there's this huge commotion. On the one side, there's all these men, that they're sitting there with their animals, and they're trying to feed their animals water and give them a drink and so on. And on the other side, he sees two women
that are just standing there. And they're kind of like wrestling with their animals because they can't go towards the water yet. They have to wait their turn. So just some kind of separation or something that's happening there. Right.
So they wait, when Musa Ali Sam is watching them. He goes up to the two women. Paula Malhotra book woman Pauletta learn this they had their use DL RIA what a buena Shea home Kevin. So they say that look.
We're trying to go there and feed our animals but we can't do anything until they leave. And our father is an old man meaning if our father could come and do this, he would but he's too old and weak. So we are we're taking care of this now. Okay, so these are the two women. Musa alayhis salam eventually takes the two animals. He goes down, gets them fed, they're happy, brings them back, goes under a tree makes an incredible dua which is what we're going to talk about very shortly.
But the point is he returns these animals back to them. When he does that, he says Paul out of be in the Lima and delta la minha union filthy Oh Allah I am always in desperate need of any opportunity to do hire and good for you. That door can't believe it's first number 24 Memorize this dua students if you're not haven't memorized this I've talked about I've given lectures on this hotbeds on this it is truly truly one of the most magnificent beautiful doors of the entire Quran goes under the shade and he says Paul out of be in Neelima and CELTA la I am always with whatever opportunity you sent down upon me. In Neelima insulted illega men hiring up here. I am always in need of any
opportunity of good use sent down to me. I am always ignored. I'm in the state of spiritual poverty for righteous deeds. So he is basically saying this opportunity. You should you just gave you just said to me to help these two women
I'm in need of those opportunities. All right, so I can never get enough. So what do we learn from that Musa Allison's attitude is focused his vision. He just wants to do hire. He just wants to help people. So fast forward
after the storm that's when everything starts to change.
I mean everything and most at least
his whole life begins now remember that incident that happened in Egypt? He ran away he has no money he's a slave. He has nothing goes through the desert arrives in the city just sits there helps these two people that makes us do are now everything starts to change.
What ends up happening?
timeshare is to hear you know, call it in the EBI. So pause. One of these two sisters came back to mozzarella cheese and she came very shy and modest.
In the abbey either Okay, Leah to Zika edge aroma subtitling. So they said, Our father is calling you because he wants to thank you and reward you for what you did for helping us out with our animals. Okay. So Musa alayhis salam goes meets the Father, Father, so happy to meet mucem was what cost sila heal puzzles. So Musashi is and pretty much told that this father is entire story. So when he told the father, father says
Nigella Nijel Tamina Paul mill and meno pomellato Even you know, you're been saved now you're okay. Don't worry about those wrong doors. You're safe here now. So once the Father gave him all of this reassurance, so now Musa has safety.
Now he has a place to stay, so he's got food. Look what happens next.
Then the man says Paula in the audio and on cat, debonair Teja Hey, Tina, Allah and Jordan Etham any muted
in at mentor Ashima feminine Indic a woman leader and Ashok Parekh started uni in sha Allah, mental Solly. So this father now says to Musa Ali Salam, I have these daughters, and I want to offer one of them in marriage to you.
And what you're gonna do for me is you're going to work for me for 80 years. And if you complete 10 years, then the extra two years is just out of a good favor from you. And you'll find me from Monster righteous. Okay, I'm gonna pause there now. Now let's take a look at some of the information on the screen. So mooses wife was called Sephora or Sephora, but some identity identified her as Zipporah. The point is, is that who was the daughter of the Midianite flock hoarder. So this is the father who Musa met before he became a prophet height. That's where we're at to the story of the Midianite flock herder allowed Musa and his daughter to wed in exchange for Musa performing eight to
10 years of work. So that's where we're at now with the story. So now you have context. You understand everything that led to this point. So now Musa alayhis salam is working from eight to 10 years So now watch what all has happened.
He got a job. Got a place to stay. Now he got offered marriage. So yes, yes, stability a security has income. He has safety as peace. He has everything. Keep all of this in mind. Okay.
Holiday des Houma. Yeah, a bit. Doodle in the hiraman jumped off a wheel. I mean, so this is how all of this started where father offered him a job and then offered him
you know, one of his daughters and things like that, this day here.
One of the daughters said, Oh, our dear Fogg father engaging on wages, you know, is zero, meaning like hire him. Truly the best of men for the to employ is the man who is strong and trusted.
So all the brothers out there.
This is one of various verses in the Koran that highlight the qualities that are really important for a man, for him to be strong and to be trustworthy, strong, physically strong is part of that, like, physically strong is not something just throw out the window and be like, yeah, it doesn't matter. A lot only love somebody who's emotionally or spiritually strong. That's important. In our Prophet Ali's Southwestern, I'm told us that it's not the physical strength that really makes a strong man. But it's his ability to restrain his anger. When he's angry. That's what gives him strength. So his ability to restrain certain emotions that causes him to just lose control is really
one of the things our profits resort to some highlights and in that case, it's anger. If he can hold constraints
Anger, before reacting or allowing himself to react is part of what makes a real man in Islam. In the Koran, these are some of the qualities that are highlighted. There are other qualities highlighted and other sorts. But in this case here, these are two of them.
He's physically strong, he's able to work is able to provide, he's able to do some labor. And labor can also be anything, any skill. So some of the elements, they said that ALPA we hear is such a vast, it's such a comprehensive word, that it also includes any skill or ability that man has, in order to use that as a means to provide for himself and his family. That's probably anything. So if he's not physically strong to do manual labor, his skill for he's a genius, or he might be a master with numbers or something else is a great accountant. Some other skill that he has, that's probably a number two, you can trust him. Now, we don't need to talk about trust. We all know how important
trust is. These two things. What's amazing, it's coming from her. She is saying this to the Father. Some of the scholars said, this is the future wife that is talking here right now. She's the one because it seems like she's the more mature one here because she's doing most of the talking. She's making the suggestion. You know, this man had daughters, many daughters, because look,
this aka the old man propose, I wish to marry one of these two daughters of mine, too. Okay. So she has these two daughters of the two that went out to take care of those animals. So one of these two daughters that I have here, which doesn't exclude the fact that he may have others, but he's just focused on these two. There's one of these who had attained the dividend to Allah and jonita Manaea hated
that you provided to just stay in my service for eight years. And if you complete 10 bucks your paper upon from you but I don't wish to make life difficult for you. Strategically insha Allah means solid, Allah willing, you will find me a really good and agreeable man, like, I'll be fair with you. So
why this is important.
He's getting a lesson in being trustworthy. Musar, at least some right? These qualities are already been highlighted out of him. But he's also seen from the man who's going to hire him. That look, I'm also a trustworthy person, because I don't want to make your life difficult. You can promise you, I will promise you, you can rest assure you we'll have a good place here. So eight years is the bare minimum I need from you. If you go and give me a little bit more, that will be honored. That's a great favor you do for me, I will appreciate that. But I promise I'm not gonna like go against our agreement and do any funny things. None of that stuff is gonna happen. So what does Musa alayhis
Paula Dalek, Albania, Albania.
This is okay. Musa Ali some responses, then it's settled. That's between meaning meaning like this agreement is done. Okay. So let's let's retract here for a second. Musa alayhis salam left Medina, excuse me left Egypt to Medion arrives, that man has nothing starving, no clothes, no food, no income, no security, nothing is literally the most wanted man in Egypt that at that time,
he finds an opportunity that's higher. And then you know, he gets security, he gets a place to stay gets food, all of that they take care of him, his company, now he's no longer alone. Then on top of that, he gets a job. So now he has stability and income. Then now on top of that, he's being offered marriage. All of these amazing, amazing things are starting to happen to him.
Most are they instead of says which term I will fulfill there will be no further obligation on see this part here. He's basically saying that whether it's eight or 10 years, I'm not gonna go any more than that. Like, you can't oblige me that after eight or 10 years that you're going to make me stay more or do this or do that anything that happens after that we'll have to have a new agreement to it okay. And Allah is a witness to what we have to say.
If only contracts all ended this way.
Allahu Allah man, all your work here. Every single contract should have this part of the A are written at the bottom and at least every Slamet contract, right?
This is the part where when contracts become like you can't depend and rely on trust them when people break contracts is because they break this part of the A. So remember that any one of you who do business in your constant
involved in creating, making contracts or writing them out and so on. Any one of us who do that, remember this part of the verse, Allah or ILM men or Kulu, workio. Allah is the true witness what kill is also a guardian. So Allah is a true guardian to everything that's unfolding. Everything that's happening her Allah is watching us. So don't mess around with this contract, don't mess around with disagreement. Like that is the last sentence that should be on any one of our contracts, whether it's written, whether it's verbal, the point is, and once an agreement is made, that's what both parties leave with, is that look Allah as a witness. So if you mess up, or you or you break the
contract, or if I do that, and we compromise an agreement, at least we know Allah as a witness will be accountable in the sight of Allah. Okay.
So the main question remains,
how did all of this happen to move so highly?
And the answer is right here.
How did all of this happen?
All of this happened to Musa this complete flip of his entire life.
And now, you all know the story. It's gonna go now to the rest of his life.
After he gets married, after he finishes his term,
he gets married, marries this daughter that was offered to him. And once he marries this daughter, they leave medicine. Here, he literally asked to be leave to be relieved of his duties, because now he fulfilled his obligations. And he leaves Why does he leave his marriage now?
He's got a family now. So now he's got to really create his own life. Here are some of the elements they say that perhaps maybe the father at this point may have passed away. So there was no reason really for him to stay all the other daughters of Sauron got married, so just nothing really for him to stay. So he leaves and they tried to just find a new home. That's what Allah that's the next step. Now. The next step is the most important and profound moment of the entire life of Morsani. So that is when Allah calls him to Bodhi Simon or mountain of tour and calls him and the revelation has given him he meets Allah He speaks to Allah Allah speaks back to him, it gets all the commandments.
And Allah literally says in any and Allahu La Isla Illa Anna Farah Bodine, er Aquino solitarily, the kitty, in Sudha, Baja, Allah subhanho wa Taala ironed out that I am your master, there is no day to worthy of worship, but to me, so fulfill and establish prayer to me so that you never forget me, you will always remember me some Hannibal, without which, by the way, we learned that that is the number one most important reason why we pray.
Well, acting of Salah lithic, so that we never forget a lot. That's why we pray. Anybody who doesn't pray, is forgetting a lot. You can guarantee 100% somebody who isn't praying, they forget to Allah, constantly.
I don't mean when you and I do pray, when we forget Allah did we remember him and we're like, kinda like, just forgot him for like half day. But I'm glad I remember him. Now. That's not what we're talking about.
Because a human being has gaps. There are moments in day when you know, when we're involved in something, we're busy with something our mind just goes elsewhere. So Allah is not really on your mind in thinking of him. But here's the thing the believer never loses. And this is what Salah preserves, is that you're always conscious that Allah is there. So even if you're not necessarily thinking of him, remembering Him you are always conscious that he's watching and listening. So even if you were tempted or you were asked or requested do something immediately your instinct not an A or how to your instinct kicks in. No, this is wrong. This is how wrong that's your remembering.
You're conscious of
when a believer does not pray they lose that suddenly they end up with whatever is being tempted or requested of them. That is clearly haram or unjust lemic Or even socially unacceptable.
Their conscious doesn't kick in and say, you know, dude, like that's, that's not right. Like don't do that. Don't act that way. None of that kicks in. They just, you know, maybe do the work now and then the damage is done.
And then regretted later.
So what are the most solidly decree was is a really profound moment for Musa alayhis salam. So in conclusion here, we'll start the next briefly the next part of the, or the next person of the Quran that we want to look at, which is the Queen of Sheba or release, and we'll pause there inshallah we'll just start introducing her perfect but the moral the main purpose that I want all of us to take from the mother of Messiah, the Son and the daughter is of course the wife of Mussolini Salaam is this here students the power of dura all of this happened after Musa alayhis salam Madara Roby in the Lima and Senator elect him in hiding filthy at that door after he made that door

She was a ruler over her people who engaged in political negotiations set in the jetty the period, this was during the time of Sulaiman eylea Salam, Our story takes place in the Quran surah number 27, which is of course, similar to Nemo verses 22 to 44. We are going to go through every single one of them so this is a large section that we will do next week Inshallah, in person. So all of you that are watching this online, you got to be impersonated sha Allah next week at the at. So we're going
to go through every single one of these verses not in detail, but they happen in such a synchronized way. Every AR leads to the next scene, which leads to the next scene which leads to the next scene. So in this story, we have to talk a little bit about Gen Z, I know that you know, it's not necessarily our topic, we're only going to talk with in weird jeans fit into this conversation. We definitely are going to talk about the Hood Hood, or an English the HU P which is this particular animal or bird here. So we're going to talk about why Allah chose this bird. Is there something special about this bird because there isn't an area in the Quran that says if Allah Yun Verona Isla
Lu l Hood Hood K for holy apart? Allah says that about the German Right? Or the evil the the camel, how Look how amazing Are you that how we created the camel, but we don't have a about the Hood Hood? So what's special about this particular bird? Why did Allah choose this bird? And you'll find this a really interesting facts about it that you know, scientist and animal experts have discovered about that animal, which I think is is interesting, it's nice to know. So we'll definitely mention that. The Hopi reported to slay men of a queen from Shiva who led her people into shock and worshipping a sun god instance of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.
