Well I'm

00:00:09--> 00:00:12

longing for the house

00:00:14--> 00:00:14

in

00:00:16--> 00:00:19

nanny Mina Mussolini

00:00:23--> 00:01:03

said I want a home Rahmatullahi or brachetto Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah him Hamid wala li wa sahbihi hmri. I'm about Welcome to another segment of Karim Allah where we talk about the lessons and reflections from the story of Masada, you Sunday is very relevant to our times. So we are now at the point that where Musa alayhis salam he is he tells his family that stay here, let me go and let me fetch some fire. I see some fire at a distance. And when he gets there, he hears his saying that, Oh Musa Eklutna lake that take off your shoes in Nicaragua didn't walk out the situ or you are in a very sacred space. Why

00:01:03--> 00:01:48

noctiluca festa, Mira Lima, you ha that I have specially chosen you. And now you need to listen attentively what I'm about to tell you. So this is where we actually got to. And if you remember last week, we talked about this that one of the things that we learn in school PA is the etiquettes and the characteristics that a diary needs to have in order to give Dawa. This is something that we learned from surah Taha and today Inshallah, we'll be highlighting some of those, the very first thing that Allah subhanaw taala says to Musa alayhis salam, he says in any and Allah, La, you know, Illa Anna, that Verily I am Allah subhanho wa taala. There is none. There is no ILA besides me. So

00:01:48--> 00:02:30

hence worship me. So this is the very first thing that Allah subhanaw taala is telling Musa alayhis salam, he is sort of introducing new solid Islam, because I want you to understand and try to picture yourself in that situation. Imagine being in a place and there is no one there. And all of a sudden you hear your name being called, where is that name coming from who's calling out my name, and they know who I am. So now Allah subhanaw taala wants to tell Musa who exactly he is. And therefore he is introducing himself to Musa alayhis salam in any and Allah that Verily I am Allah subhanho wa taala. And in essence, Musa alayhis salam is about to be given prophethood and he's

00:02:30--> 00:03:19

about to be sent on this expedition and journey, that this is your responsibility to go and invite Finland to Allah subhanho wa taala. And so when Allah says La ilaha illa there is no God besides me, what Allah subhanaw is trying to say is that there is no there is no ILA there is no God worthy of worship, but me, there is no god that should be feared. But me there is no god that is the true protector, the ultimate protector besides me, but me, there is no god that plants and make things happen, but me and at the same time I am there is no god that provides sustenance, but me This is Allah subhanho wa Taala developing the Eman and the faith of Musa alayhis salam, because without

00:03:19--> 00:04:05

faith without him believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala he's scared. If Allah is telling him to go back to fit on, he's scared. He doesn't want to go back in front is a Marlin and his Jabatan so forth. And this tyrant, he needs that assurance and this is Allah teaching and giving, teaching Iman and giving faith to Musa alayhis salam that remember that I am Allah and not only that, but I'm the one who is in complete control of all the affairs of this dunya and you should not be worried about anything and you should not be afraid of anyone besides me. Who is Allah subhanho wa Taala and from this we learned that a dari a person who calls people to Allah subhanho wa Taala they need to have

00:04:05--> 00:04:49

ultimate faith in Allah subhana wa Taala if a die is going to go and invite people to Allah, and they have doubted Allah or they have their Iman is very low. They truly don't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala they truly have deficiencies in their Iman, then how are they going to call other people to Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is the very first thing is that we have to develop some Iman now of course some people they say that you need to develop Imani completely and then you can give Dawa and as our Aqeedah we have studied in our Theta II manner. Yes either way and because Iman fluctuates, sometimes it is at all high, sometimes it does come down. So as long as you are on the

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

journey of iman, if there is on the journey of iman, then that is what's important. Then the next thing Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells Musa is far above the knee as a result

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

Have you believing in the Lord now the very first thing that you have to do is you have to manifest that servitude to Allah. And the best way to do that is through worshiping Allah and the best worship, the best worship that we can do to Allah subhana wa Tada is to maintain our salon. This is what Allah is telling Musa alayhis salam that far above the knee will actually miss Salah today, Vicki, Worship Me and establish your prayers for my remembrance. So this is something also very important that, first of all, is that what we learn from our deen is also that when a person believes in Allah, they have to maintain their slot and they have to take care of their slot and

00:05:42--> 00:06:17

establish their slot. And yes, we all are times we can become weak. But as long as if we understand our weakness, and we work upon that, and we try to bring a change in our life, and we are more punctual by our salad. This is what matters the most. If a person is missing out prayers and they don't pray, and they don't even have any regret over it either. And they don't feel that it's important to address this serious matter. than even from a diary perspective. How can you call people to Allah subhanho wa Taala if you're missing out on one of the key

00:06:18--> 00:07:01

objectives of our deen, one of the key tenants that one of the core concepts of our deen How can you believing that and then calling people to Allah subhanho wa Taala is just unfathomable. You cannot, you cannot do something like this. So that's why it's also very important that for every day for anyone who's calling people to Allah subhanaw taala to establish their prayers, and not just for any diary for everyone. This goes for everyone that you know, maintaining our prayers. The next thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala he teaches Musa alayhis salam is in Assa T Accardo fee, her little desert called Luna semi matters are he selling Musala you some about the day of judgment. And he

00:07:01--> 00:07:47

says that I want to keep it hidden Akkad or fee her that liturgies are called Luna Mata saya because I'm going to compensate every single person on that day. Now based on what this is where the key, the key part of this idea comes into the picture here. In this dunya we are judged based on results. We are judged based on results. A student studies studies and works really hard. There are some type of students that they're just really terrible at, you know, when it comes to multiple choice questions. They're just really terrible at that. Imagine a student works so hard, and they study so well. And yet when they get when they come to the test, and they just they take the test, although

00:07:47--> 00:08:27

they know it, you ask them any kind of question, they can answer it, they can explain everything, but they're just bad at taking multiple choice questions. And they take the test, they are going to be judged based on not the effort that they put into the place, but rather the results. And that's gonna affect your GPA and so forth. Allah subhanaw taala has a different rule. Allah says that on the Day of Judgment, you're going to be judged not based on your results, but based on your effort. This is why, you know, I Subhanallah I've given this example before to that when it comes to sadaqa imagine I person imagine there's a fundraiser, and there's a there's a call that we need money. Now

00:08:27--> 00:09:12

a person who lives paycheck to paycheck for example, and he gives $100 versus a person who is very well off very well off. And he gives $100 In the eyes of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, the person who lives paycheck to paycheck, he fears poverty, that person is going to be more rewarded in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala because of the effort that he made, Allah knows the efforts that we always make. And this is why the key thing that we learned from this is that do not do not look at the results always try to put the effort in place. There are some people who are very light sleepers for them to wake up and night. 4pm is very easy. But there are some people who are heavy sleepers.

00:09:12--> 00:09:51

And for them to wake up in the middle of the night and pray is extremely difficult. In the law in the eyes of Allah the person who is who has, you know who was a more deep sleeper, for him to wake up at night and pray to Allah is going to be more rewarding because he has put in more effort. This is why we also learn from the Hadith that a person who begins to memorize the Quran, and they do not finish memorizing the Quran, but it's their intention. And because they put the effort into it, on the Day of Judgment, there'll be raised amongst a whole file a person who's studying the Quran, and they work double the you know, they put more double effort into it, then then because of their

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

effort, they're going to be rewarded on the day on the Day of Judgment accordingly. So that's why always remember that Allah looks at our

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

Our efforts and because a lot of times in this dunya because we get judged based on the results, many of us we don't want to put the effort in Allah will always give you the reward for an effort. And not only that, now from the context or from the from the perspective of a diary, how what kind of a lesson can a diary take from this, that you are not in charge of the results, you are only in charge of the effort Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam went and he invited his uncle Abu Talib to Islam, he never accepted. Allah said to him, in Nicola demon, you cannot give a diet whoever you want, but yet it is the responsibility of the Prophet SAW Salem to invite people to Allah subhanho

00:10:42--> 00:10:57

wa taala. So remember, our lesson for the for all of us is we have to put in the effort and the results are in the hands of Allah subhanho wa taala. And on the Day of Judgment, Allah will judge us and Allah will give us the reward based on our efforts that we make.

00:10:58--> 00:11:40

The second thing that he says is follow your suit the Nikon harmala You may not be here, what about ahava HuFa Tada therefore, let not those who believe in Allah subhanho wa taala, who don't believe in the hereafter who don't believe in Jannah or Jahannam, and so forth, do not you know, do not be around those kinds of people who follow their desires. And in essence, what that actually means is that if we surround ourselves with people who are not mindful of Allah subhanho wa taala, then eventually they can deviate, deviate us to, and you know, what happens in this kind of situation is that, in that situation, there's a lesson for a diary, also, there's a lesson for a diary. Let me

00:11:40--> 00:12:22

give you an example. A person he sees another person, they're far from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. A person says to themselves, I want to bring this person closer to Allah. I want to be the means of Dawa for this person, hi, may Allah give you hidayah May Allah make it easy for you. But here's what happens. In many cases, when you become friends with that person, you have the right intention. You have the right Nia, you want to bring someone closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. But what happens in some cases is that instead of the diary, wearing off on the other person, the other person wears off more on the diary. So a person he came into the situation as a diary, but because of the other

00:12:22--> 00:13:01

person having more of an effect on this person on the diary. This diary has lost focus, and the objective of why he was able to make friends with this person in the first place. This is why our Dean has taught us that you can make friends you can give Dawa there is something called a Hikmah in our deen, you know, building a relationship building connections, so that eventually you want to bring them closer to Allah. But at the same time, we cannot do it at the expense of our own Deen. The Quran is telling us Do not be around those people. And do not let these people who are just subjected to their society there are some people who feel that you know what, I'm gonna go based on

00:13:01--> 00:13:39

what the flow is, if this is what the society says is right, I'm gonna go with that. If my conscience tells me that this is what's right, then I'm gonna go with that. And no, we go based on what the Quran and the Sunnah, says, our conscience is based on the teachings and of the Quran and the Sunnah. If I think that something is right, but Allah says it's wrong, then it's wrong. And if I say that something is right, and Allah says it's wrong, then it's wrong then. So whatever Allah says, and wherever the Prophet Solomon says, that is going to be our guiding compass. And so therefore, going forward, we have to keep this in mind. And you know, for a diary, once again, if

00:13:39--> 00:14:15

you're going to build up a relationship with someone, make sure that it is based on Taqwa making sure that you're bringing this person closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. And if your Dawa is weak, and they have more of an effect on you, then that is where you need to sever that kind of relationship, not in the wrong way, please not in the wrong way, not in a disrespectful way. But then you need to sort of distance yourself from those kinds of people is very, very, very, very important. Not only that, but when it comes to giving Dawa to one thing that we learned beautifully about these ayat is that when Allah talked about the Day of Judgment, when Allah talked about the

00:14:15--> 00:14:50

day of judgment, He says to musalla, he set out that I'm going to give the reward based on the on the efforts, then he's telling Mussolini's on that do not be around these kinds of such people who only follow their desires and so forth. This is Allah talking about the Day of Judgment in a different way. What do we learn from that? If a person is giving Dawa? Whenever you're talking about the Day of Judgment, as some people we see that whenever they talk about the Day of Judgment, the only thing they talk about is jahannam. The only thing they talk about when it comes to the hereafter is that on the Day of Judgment, the frightening situation on the day of judgment and the

00:14:50--> 00:14:54

situation of the people as highlighted in subtle hij.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

This is what they talk about when it comes to the the Day of Judgment. A diary needs to

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

Always present the situation in a way that it makes it appealing. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says in a hadith narrated by UNECE Ravi Allah Tala on that and this hadith is motif Macaulay, he says Bushido. Yes. You know what that was to make the when you present the and make it in a simplified way. I'm not saying change and compromise the tenants of our the I'm not saying that every time the word yes, cielo comes up. Many people they get excited and you know, they say that oh, does that mean that we change up the core concepts of our deen? I'm not saying that. But there's also a way to present them in a way that is appealing to without changing the core concepts and the

00:15:38--> 00:16:12

core values of our deen and then the profit if someone says Yes, it'll will add to us and not make it difficult upon people. But she do that enough for you to give more glad tidings and do not make people run away from them. So this is why it's very important when it comes to giving Dawa we keep some of these core principles in mind. And shall we'll finish on here once again. Just want to remind everyone that what do we cover today about especially when it comes to giving Dawa? That first of all, a person needs to have strong faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala a diary must always be particular about their prayers and establish their prayers. We learned from the province of some he

00:16:12--> 00:16:52

was the best day the province of Saddam he would wake up at night and make dua for people. When did he make dua for the guidance of mankind? When did he make dua that oh Allah I met this person give this person guidance so forth, is when the Prophet Allah is some he would wake up at night and you will make dua for these people. Also a day needs to always remember that their job is to make the effort and give Dawa the results will always be in the hands of Allah subhanho wa taala. A diary when you present Islam to others, first of all, a diary when it comes to building relationships, making sure that it cannot be done, where they're losing their own Dean, the other person is wearing

00:16:52--> 00:17:29

off on that more. And then the last thing that a diary can learn from this is that when you present Dean present them in a way that is more appealing to others, you know, present them in such a way there's so much Hikmah that we can use in our dean, that when it comes to bringing other people to Allah subhanho wa Taala Inshallah, next week we will talk about the time when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada he asked that what is in your right hand, oh Musa alayhis salam, there's so many beautiful things that we can learn from this conversation also, I ask Allah subhana wa to give all of us the ability to alcohol was what has been said and heard. And today some of the some of the key things that I've

00:17:29--> 00:17:40

highlighted that a diary must have I ask Allah subhana wa to give all of us those characteristics. I mean, what would it mean exactly Malachite? Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
