Nadim Bashir – Kaleemullah #11 – Be Gentle and not Harsh

Nadim Bashir
AI: Summary © The title " Subhan" in the Bible is used to signal willingness to work and the use of the symbol "naive" to describe the experience of the time before Islam was implemented. The use of "naive" is highlighted as a way to express one's compassion and willingness to work, as well as the importance of remaining humble and considerate. The use of "arrogant," as a way to assert one's composure and honor others, is also emphasized.

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jemaine about Welcome to another segment of collembola where we go through the lessons and reflections that is relevant to our times things that we can apply in our life and things that we can learn from the story of Musa he's Sana. So ALLAH SubhanA wa taala. After giving the booyah and prophethood to Musa alayhis, salam, Musa alayhis salam, he makes a sincere dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala rubbish rally Saudi is silly, Emery. What Hello, no awkward determinedly Sunny, you have to Hakone and this is a dua that I had

00:01:02 --> 00:01:46

mentioned last week, the explanation of this dua. Now, right after this, Allah subhanho wa Taala and Sua Taha, he says, one other man, and now I Lika, Marathi and okra, that we had mercy upon you and we have, you know, shown our mercy and mercy to you on many different ways. And not only that, but some of the things that some of the favors that we have done upon you, is now Allah subhanho wa Taala listing those favors upon Musa alayhis salam, because after this, Allah subhanho wa Taala has a message again for Musa alayhis salam. So first of all, is that this is something that we find very common in the Quran. Allah is listening to Musa all the favors he has done above for him, and then

00:01:46 --> 00:02:29

he's going to give him a certain responsibility, even in the Quran, and when it comes to us, not the story of Musa and some other places in the Quran, you will see that the style of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is such that Allah first talks about himself. Allah talks about his powers, Allah talks about his majesty, Allah talks about the favours upon us. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala he sends his message to us. Look at surah Allah the yard, for example. So when the idea is one of the last Sutras of the Quran is after as soon as exam before Sudha Acharya in that surah Allah subhana wa Taala in the beginning, I add, he's talking about horses. Yeah, he's talking about horses. And the reason why

00:02:29 --> 00:03:12

he's talking about horses because that would attract the attention of the autumns and MCCA. In his a monkey sutra. And once their attention has, you know, Allah has their attention. Then Allah subhana wa Taala would give his main message was in an insanity or be like elude very, the human being is very ungrateful to Allah subhanho wa taala. So the point I'm trying to make here is that this is a very common matter that we see in the Quran. Allah listing favors Allah saying different things to get our intention and then Allah gives the message which he intends. So here Allah subhanho wa Taala begins to go through and list of all the favors he has done upon Musa he said number one is oh Hanaa

00:03:13 --> 00:03:57

you know, Omega Ewha, your mother had no clue what to do. We put that matter in our heart. We inspired her to do what she needed to do at that time. Not only that, and literally fee for taboo difficulty fee, Phil yummy. Fell up the hill. Yeah, maybe sad. Yeah, who are the woolly what I do ALLAH, ALLAH SubhanA, saying that, what do we inspire her to do to put you into a chance to put you into a box, and then to put you into a river and so forth, and then the river will wash this, to the bank of the river and so forth. All this was by who? By Allah subhanho wa taala. Not only that, he says, Well, I'll call you to alayka Mahabharata mini that we put your love in their heart, meaning

00:03:57 --> 00:04:44

that when the wife of fit own picked you up, and the fact that even further on when he saw you, when he saw you on Musa, the fact that he had a place of compassion in his heart, who put that compassion in their heart, it was Allah subhanho wa taala. Because if there was no compassion, who knows if Musa will stay there or not? And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, what he to snarler it, we did all this we protected you so that we can keep an watchful eye over what is going on in your affairs. This is Allah again, once again listening to Musa all the favors he has done upon him. Then he says he reminds him if she ought to further ado LUCAM Allah follow. Remember that we even create a

00:04:44 --> 00:04:59

situation where your sister went to fit around, and she appeared in his court and she said, Allah had given her the mental for fortitude and mental strength to say that Do you know I know of a woman that who will take care of

00:05:00 --> 00:05:45

Musa and Allah subhanho wa Taala united, you and your mother all this happened by Allah subhanho wa taala. And so this is one second Allah is reminding, then Allah reminds Musa that you are in Egypt and then you kill someone Wakata Nelson fernet Jane Eyre Camila homie wolferton NACA Fortuna, we protect you from so many different fitness where the fitness war the trials, the fact that there was a warrant of arrest out for Musa and the fact that Musa was the one who did this, Allah subhanaw taala says We protected you. Then next Allah reminds Musa that then you went to muddy and fall for Fatah, NACA Fortuna, for business see Nina fee Ali Madeon you then stayed in Medina for a long time.

00:05:46 --> 00:06:34

And there you're given a family there you're given a job there you are living with your in laws, there you had a life and you're able to live a normal life, all this was given by who by Allah subhanho wa taala. And then Allah subhana wa Tada says, was thrown out I took early enough See, Allah says, I have then chosen you for myself. And here the word is slightly now actually, from an Arabic perspective, it means to create something, and to, to develop something. And so And according to other linguist it means to, to develop pottery and so forth. So you know, when you see people when they, when they have clay, and so forth, or the pottery, and then they usually burn it, in

00:06:34 --> 00:07:20

order to make it solid, and so forth. The one thing that we see is that Allah giving this example was thrown out quickly enough. See, Allah is saying that, just like when it comes to clay, we mold the clay, this is how you know you make pottery and so forth, you mold that clay to the way you want it to be. And then you burn it, you print it, you put it in that process, and when it comes out, it is solid. Likewise, Allah subhanaw taala so beautifully, he's saying that this entire situation or Musa, it has been created by us, everything that you see has happening, it was our plan, it was our plan. And the fact that you are here today on this mountain and you are receiving this prophethood

00:07:21 --> 00:08:05

and you have come here to this point in your life, every single event lead to the next event. And all this was put together by who by us Oh Musa, it was put together by Allah subhanho wa taala. And then it is as if Allah is saying that we mold in your story. And then we put you in difficulty to just like you put pottery in a fire, likewise. And then finally the there might be other ways of developing, developing pottery and so forth. But the fact that sometimes you put it in fire to, to make it solid, likewise is as if Allah is saying that we put you through difficulty, but when you came out of that have that difficulty, you are solid, you are strong. And this is Allah subhana wa

00:08:05 --> 00:08:49

Tada saying, what's done, I took an NFC, another meaning of what's an article NFC is, I have chosen this entire situation to develop, so that you Oh Musa when you go back to Fit own, and you have to give him Dawa, and so forth. You know exactly what the people of Bani Israel are going through. And so you think about this, that Musa is about to go back into Egypt is as if Allah is saying that from this point onward, if you see anyone coming across you, if you see anyone who is going through difficulties, now you can relate to them. If you see a person who is struggling because of some internal internal challenges, you've been there, you've done that, you know exactly how to talk to

00:08:49 --> 00:09:29

that person was done article enough. See, if you see a person who's being abused, you know what that feels like? When you see a person who's homeless, and they have no place to go and they have no support, Musa you've been there, you know exactly what to do in that kind of situation was for not to care enough See, And subhanAllah if you think about the correlation, and the connection between the story of Musa Islam and the Prophet SAW Sanlam we find this even in the spirit of the Prophet, it looked at the life of the prophet, brothers sisters, there is for every single person they can find some solace in the life of the prophet saw Salem. If there's a person who's a single father,

00:09:29 --> 00:09:59

they can find the problem was once a single father to when you're talking about having many kids and how to deal with kids. The problem was some he showed that the problem some he was a father in law. The problem was son was a son in law. Yes, he was a son in law. Think about it to who to Omaha, Nebraska Vilalta and but he was a father in law to a slave and our son and Eileen or the EULA and the province Salaam has been through so much. You talk about losing a family member there probably some he was born without a father and his mother died at the age

00:10:00 --> 00:10:43

just *. You talk about being emotional. The problems are some is mentioned by the Sahaba that when he went to the grave of his mother, he was crying like a baby. He was crying like a baby, we understand the human side of us was a solemn and not only that, but it is as if Allah is saying to Musa alayhis salam to the fact that we put you through this entire process is so that when you come out you are strong, you are solid, and and when you go out and you communicate to people, you can understand their challenges. Next Allah subhanho wa Taala he says that it has until a hookah be IoT wallet Ania physically, this is something very important especially for diaries. Nowadays. Here

00:10:43 --> 00:11:25

Allah subhanaw taala is saying that go you and your brother, but he says at the same time he says wallet attorney yeah physically do not forget me. Do not forget to remember me. See brothers and sisters when it comes to giving Dawa. It's very important that we just don't depend on our Dawa. You know, many times we feel like I'm such a great diary. I'm so influential I can do this. I can do that. But there is spiritually there is no connection with Allah subhanho wa taala. The Dawa life of the prophet Salman was such that during the day he would give Dawa and a night he would cry before Allah and night he will make dua for those people and night he will make dua the O Allah give

00:11:25 --> 00:12:09

Hidayat to all those people I met today, mate, he will make dua for them he will cry for them. And that was a time that where his family was asleep and he will connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala and he was able to gain that mental strength in order to go and give the hour. So this is something that we learned something very much for every single day is that do not ever depend only on your talents do not only depend only on giving Dawa. You need to have a spiritual connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala then he says it hubba Fado owner in the hotel Hall for Kula Allahu Allah Lena la allow you to record or Yaksha I'm going to fish in sha Allah and this is two things I want to share

00:12:09 --> 00:12:50

with you from this idea. First of all, is that Allah subhana wa Taala is saying that this man Finn own he claims to be Rob he claims to be the Maliki he claims to be the ILA. There is no king. There's no tyrant in the history of humanity. Who ever claimed to be all three. You know, when we've seen when we read sort of NAS, or orderBy, robinus Moluccan NAS Illa hyenas. There's Rob, there's money. There's ILA. There's many different kings of the past who claim to be one of those three, but for own The Quran mentions in many different places. If you look very closely fit I don't claim to be all three he claimed to be Rob. He claimed to be Malik he claimed to be Illa. Allah subhanho wa

00:12:50 --> 00:13:32

Taala is telling Musa when you go to this man, speak to him in a gentle way, speak to him in a soft way, do not lose it. He's in a coma. And this is we're going to talk about this and show later on, that how Fanon was so sarcastic, and how fit on came out just attacking Musa alayhis salam, but because Musa had orders from Allah subhanho wa Taala that did not talk to him in a very in a harsh way. Musashi sub never lost his cool with Fanon. And the one thing that we learned from this the first thing that we learned from this is is is you don't ever lose your cool loser loser you know your composure, especially when it comes to people in especially when it comes to giving Dawa. You

00:13:32 --> 00:14:13

know, subhanAllah how many times you will come across someone who is very abrupt, very disrespectful, very rude as a Muslim. What we learn from Dawa is that the Prophet Sam he never lost his cool, the possum never lost his composure. This is what we need to learn, you can never lose your composure, never become emotionally compromised. Jaffa the Allah and Jaffa revealed on when he was in Abyssinia than a jar she called him two three times because the Quraysh kept on going to the judge and say these are people who are filmmakers, they're going to cause chaos in your society, send them back to us send them back with us to Makkah we'll take care of them. And time after time

00:14:13 --> 00:14:51

they will call Jaffa and all the Muslims had to appear in court. Jaffa never lost his cool he never lost his composure he was always very calm. And so this is something very important that we learned is that even when it comes to the worst of the worst people, especially when it comes to giving Dawa if Allah is telling Musa to keep your comment your composure to fit own then that means that when it comes to any other person we cannot we do not have an excuse to lose our cool when it comes to giving Dawa. This is the very first thing. The second thing that we learned from this ayah is he says Allah Jalla wa Ala la Allahu yet adecuado Yasha Musa, you don't know you have no idea but

00:14:51 --> 00:15:00

perhaps he may show he may he may take heed. He may learn his lesson he may you know he may be fearful he may show some

00:15:00 --> 00:15:39

Respect. So you have to do this. Now this is Allah saying that perhaps it may or may not happen, because here Musa may even have his own preconceived notions, what's the point of talking to this man with respect, he's gonna He's gonna do what he does. And perhaps you know, he might not even become Muslim and so forth. That one thing that we learned from this is that Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us that perhaps he may take heed and so forth. This applies to everyone else. This applies to every single person who may not be a Muslim, perhaps one day they may become a Muslim. This applies to those people that who may not be so religious, but perhaps one day they can become

00:15:39 --> 00:16:16

religious. And so we should never come jump to conclusions about anyone, just because I feel like I'm very religious, you know? Subhanallah today, you find people in the state of Dawa people who are giving Dawa. They're giving Dawa, to Muslims giving Dawa to non Muslims and so forth. But sometimes they feel so arrogant. Sometimes they feel so arrogant, that I'm doing so much good. And this is from Shavonne a lot of times, by the way, that you feel like you are so above and beyond everyone that sometimes you don't even feel like you need to make salaam to someone. You know, I've seen this happening. I've seen this Wallah happening, where you see people, they don't even make sense to

00:16:16 --> 00:16:54

someone else. Why? Because I feel like I'm better than them. I'm a dairy. You know, they're not they're not a dairy, I do dollar work. They don't do that work and so forth. That's arrogance. And that is you saying that you are above and beyond them and you are better than them. We can never say that I'm better than anyone else. Remember the story of a woman in the hubbub? There was quickly I'm going to quickly go through this because this is very eye opening. In the in the early days of Islam, when the Paulson ordered the Muslims that some of you go and travel to Hampshire, go and settle over there. You know what happened? What I'm gonna hop over was our Muslim yet. He was

00:16:54 --> 00:17:34

passing by one of those families that were packing their luggage to go and travel to Abyssinia. He said to the woman, where are you going? And she said that because of people like you, you have made our life difficult here in Makkah, that's why we have to leave here. And only Mahatama said, may Allah be with you. That's all you said. May Allah be with you. Now, later on that evening, her husband came around and said anything new today? She says yeah, interestingly on whatever hotdog came around, and he said when he saw that we cannot live in Mecca anymore. And he saw us leaving, he said that May Allah be with you. And he said him on.

00:17:35 --> 00:18:16

And then he said, perhaps the donkeys of the house of Omaha Bob will become a Muslim before I'm going to hop up does Subhanallah think about that? Think about that statement. He is judgmental for a moment, and he's making a judgment about Omaha pub. This this person did not know that Omaha will not just become a Muslim, but you will become amongst the ashram Bashara he'll become a mutual mean Amani, Macatawa yella, Terra on and so much of his contributions to Islam and so forth. This is why brothers and sisters never ever make a judgement about anyone else. Today we might be religious, but it's very possible that the person that I am judgmental about they will be in Jannah before us.

00:18:18 --> 00:18:50

They are perhaps more closer to Allah than us. Who knows. Perhaps I may go far from religion and they will be close to religion at the time of their death. Always ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for is the karma. And when it comes to those people who are not so religious, make dua for them. Make dua for them that Allah Subhana Allah give them guidance. I ask ALLAH SubhanA without to give all of us ability to understand these ayat May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us ability to reflect upon them and apply them in our life and Mirabal Allah mean, does that Kamala Hey Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
