Nina Mosley, mostly

00:00:24 --> 00:01:05

cinnamon or Haman hamdulillah who behind me and was Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jemaine about, today I'm doing we have come so far to the point of the story of Musa alayhis salam, where Musala his sons walking in the streets, he sees a man of his tribe, but he saw in, and now he wants to help them because this man is seeking Musa is help. And we have got to this point. And of course, as I said before, we're not going to get actually into the story. We're going to actually get into the lessons and reflections from the story of Musa alayhis salam. So so this man who is an Israelite, he's being persecuted by an Egyptian person and Musa you some comes

00:01:05 --> 00:01:49

there and this man he seeks Musa as help. He knows a Mussolini, some is from his people. And so when he seeks his help Musala ism goes to this person. And you know, what happens is that the Quran simply mentioned that for work as a whole Musa falcoda, ali, the moosari Islam, he laid a punch on this man. Now usually when we talk about a punch, you know, a punch is usually to the face. You know, the old AMA and the the scholars have debated exactly where did he learn the punch, but that is irrelevant. The point is that he punched him, and he eventually killed this Egyptian man. Now you remember that before when I said that this event took place at a time during the midday time when

00:01:49 --> 00:02:31

everyone was at their homes, it was so hot, the animals will go into the shades and so forth. So there was not much action going on in the streets. This is when this action to take place. Now you can just imagine that when everyone came back, they see that oh, you know, there is a a police officer or you have an Egyptian army person who is killed here and no one knows who is the killer. And so now husana You some the Quran simply mentioned that when Musa lism he did this, the very first thing that he said is Rob be in the Valaam to see thankfully for Allah for Allah, O Allah, I have done something very, very terrible. I've done something wrong. Oh ALLAH forgive me. The Quran

00:02:31 --> 00:03:14

says Allah forgave him. And then what did he say? Rob, BB Ma. And I'm Talia Fallon Hakuna. We're here all in Majid Amin, O Allah, because of what you have done for me and what you have given me. I shall never stand as a helper to those who are the oppressors, or those who are the wrongdoer. Majid means a person who is guilty. And then the Quran simply mentions that the next morning now that day Musa Assam he just remained hiding he not want to go outside. He was just regretful of what had happened. And not only that, but he did not want other people to find out what had happened. The next day the Quran says for us what I felt Medina T ha even Yetta lockup for this final resistant

00:03:14 --> 00:03:56

Surah who will um See yesterday who called the whole Musa in Nicaragua, we will be in the Quran mentions that next morning he came out. Musa was very terrified. He was very scared. He was watching his steps. He is watching around the corner being very observant of his surrounding, making sure that no one gets a hint of what happened yesterday. And he sees the same man who was yesterday involved in a conflict. He sees a same man again involved in another conflict. And again, he's seeking help. And Mussolini. Some says in Mecca level we you're mobian He says that you are a plane. He says you are a mischievous, mischievous person. You are a misleader and you are misleading me.

00:03:56 --> 00:04:40

And then the Quran simply mentions that as Musa alayhis salam saw that the Israelite has been persecuted and the Egyptian person is persecuting the Israelite Mossad as some he had to step in. Because Musala ism has innocent heart at the end of the day. He did not do what he did yesterday, intentionally it was an accident. But again, he had to step in because wrong is wrong and right is right. So as he was coming, this person that Israelite actually thought that this time Musa ism is coming for him. And what did he say? He says that a to redo and Topo toolani Kumar cotyledon of somebody's arms. Are you going to kill me like you? Did you kill someone yesterday? And just imagine

00:04:40 --> 00:05:00

that this is happening when everyone is there in the market. And there's news and chatter that's going on. You don't like through all your social networks, that there is a person who has killed one Egyptian soldier and we need to find out and bring that person to justice. Just like today. You know, just like today, you have a person

00:05:00 --> 00:05:42

and who is innocent, they are killed and is no you know, is no big deal. But today you have a person in blue, and they get killed. And what happens is, you know, everyone needs to find out who killed this officer and so forth. Human life is human life at the end of the day. And so at the end of the day, Musala is understood. And this person, he basically exposed Musa alayhis salam. And then everyone started they're like, oh, it's Musa Musa, Prince of Egypt son, you know, adopted center for own, he's the one who killed the Egyptian soldier. And now this news has spread everywhere. And now Mussolini, some is even more terrified. And now a man the Quran, somebody mentioned that a man then

00:05:42 --> 00:06:19

came to Musa as an advisor and gave him this advice, that my suggestion would be is that you leave this town, you leave, and you go somewhere else. And, you know, just leave this plays, otherwise you will be caught up persecuted. Now. So this is the part of the story that we're going to talk about today. Now, once again, as I said earlier, we're not talking about the story, I just give you a brief synopsis of what happened. But now shall we'll get into some of the lessons and reflections. And this is where I need you to pay attention. The very first thing that we learn from this story is when Musa alayhis salam punched this man, and he killed him. Now he never stood there and say, Yeah,

00:06:19 --> 00:07:04

you know what, this is what you get, you know, that, you know, this, Mussolini is some he feels internal regret. And this teaches us that right is right and wrong is wrong. It does not matter who the person is. Our dean has not given us the permission to hurt anyone. Our dean has not given us the permission to take someone's life just because I feel like it. Or if I do something, because of my cause, that I should be proud about it. Let me give you an example. You know, subhanAllah over you know, some you know, I remember several years ago, there was a very famous incident that took place, which was the Charlie Hebdo situation. Basically, this news agency, I believe is in France.

00:07:04 --> 00:07:47

They had you know, create a cartoon in the you know, disrespecting us allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what was the reaction of the Muslim world? You know, subhanAllah Muslims were going crazy everywhere. You know, and you have places like in Pakistan, all these other places where they are burning, they're burning cars. They're burning buses. They're burning a McDonald's, the burning a KFC. Why? Because all this is American. And they're doing this out of what out of revenge. You know, subhanAllah I remember during that time, there was an interesting article written in the local newspaper, that the author is saying that Muslims pee, please be smart. This is the title of his

00:07:47 --> 00:08:32

article, Muslims, please be smart. Because every time something happens in disrespect of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam people go and they behave in this way, burning property and so forth. Our dean has now taught us this, and when has burning property and damaging property, as is a courtesy and is a source of respect to show to those who are say Allahu Allah, he was salam. Now, I'm not saying that you cannot be hurt. Because see, a lot of times when I tell people that do not do anything, do not go and damaged property. The first question that people ask me is to the year okay, if they disrespect the prophets of Salaam, I'm not saying that we should feel sad, we should

00:08:32 --> 00:09:15

feel bad. But the end of the day, when Rasul Allah said, Allah, Allah He was selling was disrespected. And when he was taunted, is this how to salsa, Salah would behave is this word was was awesome, he would do. And just think about this. If the Prophet was present here today, do you think he would advocate for this to go and destroy property? This is not what our dean is. And subhanAllah we will stand by this principle, even today, you know, subhanAllah, there were you know, when, you know, I remember around like several weeks ago, during the whole George Floyd's situation. You know, there were so many there were so many protests taking place across the nation. And during that time,

00:09:15 --> 00:09:54

there were people who were going into stores and looting stores and so forth. And people were, you know, combining the two, oh, protest is not fine. Why? Because it's leading people. And it's wrong, because people are going and they are, you know, they're committing theft. They're looting stores and so forth. They're two separate things. The protest part is absolutely fine. These are people who are demanding their rights. These are people who are demanding justice, there's nothing wrong with that. On the other hand, looting stores is wrong. So you cannot when you're trying to do something that is good, if you do something wrong, that wrong cannot be justified. Musalla is some understands

00:09:54 --> 00:09:59

right away, and he knows that he has done something wrong, though it may be against an Egyptian person at that.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:39

Time, but the only thing I do also want to quickly share is that when this happens to our own Muslim community members, when it comes to Muslims and another Muslim, I stand by a certain philosophy, I certain I stand by a certain ideology, whether, you know, it could be anything today Subhanallah we have so many differences, you know, the way we see things the way we understand the Quran and the Sunnah. And you know, sometimes there's a, you know, we follow a motherboard, we don't follow a motherboard and so forth. And whatever ideology you stand by fine, but today's Subhanallah we're living in a time that seriously Muslims are just simply attacking other Muslims. See, there is one

00:10:39 --> 00:11:22

thing that if you see someone making the Khalifa changing up religion, yes, we should stand up against that. But there's a way to stand up against that today. Subhanallah the Muslim world, they are attacking each other, and just attacking each other, having no respect for one another on social media. And why in the name of Islam in the name of Dawa. I'm sorry, that's not Dawa. If you really want to talk to someone, why don't you talk to someone and you see this on social media, that people say that you know what, I did reach out to that person, but that person does not want to respond then fine. That's that's their prerogative. That's their choice. You cannot force a person into a

00:11:22 --> 00:12:01

conversation. And if they don't want to converse with you, you cannot go outside and you cannot go on social media and attack them. Wrong is wrong is right and right is right. This is where Musala is some story is teaching us to begin with. Then the next thing that we learn is that as soon as Musar ism does something wrong, what do you do? He sought Allah's forgiveness. Brothers and sisters whenever we do anything wrong. seeking Allah's forgiveness immediately is very, very crucial. We see this for the province that Allahu alayhi wa sallam, we see this from the Sahaba of the yellow to Arnhem, whenever they will do something wrong. Always seek out Allah's forgiveness, and was

00:12:01 --> 00:12:43

interesting also to learn from Musa statement. He says, Golem to Neff see, I have done something wrong. I don't blame other people for what wrong to you do? This is another problem that we have today in the Muslim community. We want to blame the entire world for the wrongs that we are doing. If I am doing something wrong, that's on me. Allah is not going to tell us what provoked you remember? No, on the day of judgment. If I ever say to Allah, that I did something wrong to this person, or I did something wrong because this person he provoked me or She provoked me. That's not an answer. There are people who came and they provoked us, allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, but the

00:12:43 --> 00:13:27

Prophet Allah is an example is the best example that he never went after people. So this is why it's very important that when we do something wrong, we seek Allah's forgiveness. And number two is we blame no one, but ourselves. The next lesson that we learn here is moose Ali, some saying Fallon Hakuna, we're here all in Virginia mean, I will not stand by those people or I will not stand on the side of those people who do wrong and who are the Muslim, the wrongdoers, brothers, sisters today we know there are people who are wrong, but because of friendship, because of connections because of networking, I don't want to go against a person and I will stand on their side though they may be

00:13:27 --> 00:14:15

wrong. In the name of friendship. This is wrong brothers and sisters, if I know that there is something wrong, I shall never stand on that side. And internally deep down inside, we know what is wrong. Today we feel we pretend like we don't know. But Allah knows that we deep down inside we know that it is wrong. And yet where we stand on their side, remember on the Day of Judgment will be along that side of that person too. We have to remember this we have to remember this. And so this is why we find in the Quran to that a friend when you side with a friend. And so therefore Khan has a story about a man who came and they he denounces Islam because of his friendship because of his

00:14:15 --> 00:14:37

friendship. And that's why the Quran mentions that on the Day of Judgment, this person will be simply regretting his decision making. That's why brothers and sisters always remember that always be on the side of those people who are righteous be on the side of those people who are not wrongdoers, you know, when a person has been convicted of murder, you know, there's always you know, we always say that this person has been convicted of murder.

00:14:38 --> 00:14:59

And then we always say that this person is accessory to murder. I'm sure you've heard this statement before, or this phrase, when there's a person who does something wrong. One is that person, but then if we stand by that person, then we are accessory to wrong to that's why never be on the side of those people who are wrong. The next thing is the next day musalla yourself

00:15:00 --> 00:15:42

When he came out, as I said earlier, that he came out he was terrified. He did not want he did not want anyone to know what happened. What happened was that Musa alayhis salam, he went to go and remove the second day, when that person again he's in a conflict. Musa Hassan came to remove the who the Egyptian man. And what did Mussolini, some do what what is his helping teach us, you only help if you can be of help. Today everyone wants to become a hero. Today everyone wants to become Superman. Everyone wants to do the right thing. But if you do not have the ability to do what is right, then you should stay away. Let me give you an example, today's Subhanallah everyone wants to

00:15:42 --> 00:16:21

come. You know, everyone wants to be on the news, for example, say something positive about Islam and so forth. Everyone wants to do something great. But at the same time, if we don't have the capacity, if I don't have the ability, if I don't have the skill set, I should simply just stay away. In our own material. Brothers and sisters, everyone has a certain skill set. Everyone has a different art. let people do what they're good at. And whatever Allah has bestowed you with, you can do that. But if you don't have the ability to do something, please do not step in and try to help out. We always find that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will not just assign the Sahaba

00:16:21 --> 00:17:02

into any role in any task. He knew that this is a hobby, he has certain weaknesses and certain strengths. He would use as a hobby, to the strengths to his strengths. And he will keep them keep them away from their weakness. This is something that's very, very important. Only step in if you know you can help if you're going to step into a situation and you're going to take sides, then do not ever step into that kind of situation. And finally, what we learn is that this, this is Israelite, what do you do? He exposed Musa alayhis salam Okay, he exposed Musala exam. So what did Musa Assam try to do both days he tried to go and help this person right? And we see that this

00:17:02 --> 00:17:45

person exposed Musa what do we learn from this? Always remember, no matter how good of a friendship that you have, you can always be betrayed one day, you may be betrayed one day, people that you've always looked out for people that you've always cared for one day, they can always turn around and they can betray you. This is why our Dean has taught us that when you keep friendship with someone, keep it at a moderate level do not become so intimate with each other, that you share each other's secrets. You share each other's you know, personal and financial and family information with each other because people can turn against other people Subhanallah today there are times so many times

00:17:45 --> 00:18:24

I've lost count where people have called me that they have helped out or they have been working with someone and they got betrayed. Remember, this is why I've said this before, if there is one who will not betray us, it is Allah subhana wa to Allah, hold on to Allah, Allah will never betray you, brother and sister. But when you trust other people, when you become so close and attached to someone, remember people are people in shape on is attached with everyone. And if you are betrayed, you know Subhanallah there are people who call me so many different cases, whether it is associated with a family member sometimes is associated with an organization. Sometimes it's associated with a

00:18:24 --> 00:19:07

masjid, whatever situation it may be, whatever situation it may be, ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala for his help. Remember that if you are right, Allah will make sure that people see that you are right. If you are wrong, seek ALLAH subhanaw taala is forgiveness. And remember, and remember that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala will always be on your side, if you are correct. And if people betray you, and people they mistrust you going forward, then at that time, you need to of course, say your statement, you have to share your story, your side the story. But at the same time, we remember that when you put your trust too much and people, people can betray you. So this is why it's very

00:19:07 --> 00:19:42

important for all of us, that when we get betrayed or if we ever get betrayed, may Allah protect us from that, from that kind of situation. But if we ever get we are in that position. Remember, it's not the end of the world. seek out help from someone. Put your trust in those people who you truly trust people who are God fearing people who have the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is where we talk about having good and proper friends. So once again, if you ever betrayed put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala ask Allah subhanaw taala for his help, but this is a reality of life. I ask Allah subhanaw taala that all the lessons that we have learned from this part of the story,

00:19:42 --> 00:19:54

may Allah give us ability to learn from these lessons. May Allah subhana wa Taala give us the ability to apply them in our life. Amira al Amin, does that Kamala Hey Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
