salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Bismillah Mano Haman hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jemaine Amaya, inshallah we will be wrapping up the series Karim Allah insha Allah and next one or two segments, And subhanAllah this entire journey has been such that we learned so much from the Quran. There's just so many gems that we find and every single story throughout the last probably three or four months we have been going through the story of Musa alayhis salam, and focusing on the lessons and reflections from the from the story of Masada against Saddam. And I would strongly encourage all of our all of our listeners

00:01:02--> 00:01:44

and viewers that please do make a note of this. There are a lot of lessons and reflections that may affect you that are very relevant to you. And I would strongly say and suggest that you make a note of them and always go back to them. This is what the Quran is brothers and sisters, the Quran Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, Lakota kind of Kasasa him a baritone. There is so much that can be learned from the Quran. However, there are some who benefit from the Quran and there are some who do not benefit from the Quran. And today we will see Xactly from the story of Bani Israel II and that how they had Musa Alexander from them. They just saw what happened to fit on. They saw that how

00:01:44--> 00:02:30

ALLAH SubhanA destroy fit own in his army, yet the arrogance yet the ignorance of bunnies Saeed is so mind boggling. That even despite all this, how they are resorting to shake, how they are resorting to the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala so we go to southern Arafa Allah subhanho wa Taala he talks about the Allah Allah says that he had destroyed for the own and Allah subhanho wa Taala he says that but he saw he had passed the entire see the saw what has happened to fit on and then they turned to Musa Islam and this was a very first time that Bonita saw in showed their true colors. This was their time this was the very first time that they show their true colors. You just

00:02:30--> 00:03:24

saw what happened. If you had any doubts in moosari His son before this after seeing this, you have no more doubts yet. Allah subhanho wa Taala says what wasn't happy bunny saw Ito Bahara for a toe Isla Coleman yaku funa Isla Osnap Mila whom? Paul lujah Musa Alana Isla Han Kumar Allahu Allah, Allahu Akbar Subhanallah the people but he saw either Tony Mousavi some that create for us and Isla a god. And this is the key thing that we learned from this is that these people are being taught or they're being told to worship Allah subhanho wa taala. Yet, this is this is the ignorance this is their arrogance that whatever has happened yet they're saying to Musashi Sam, we want an ILA the ILA

00:03:24--> 00:04:07

who just saved you, you don't want to worship that ILA. But you want to worship and Isla, as Allah says in the Quran, they cannot benefit you nor they can harm you. You want that kind of either. That is where Musa alayhis salam, he got upset and very obviously you will get upset. He says all our hate Allah He Abba leikam ilan, that besides Allah, you're looking for another god, another ILA. Someone that will nourish you someone that will take care of you, someone that will protect you from your enemy you're looking for another ILA. besides Allah. Well, who affirmed Allah? Allah Allah mean and he gave you honor above everyone else. Wade and Jane Eyre common elephant owner, your su Munna

00:04:07--> 00:04:52

consew Allah adapt their Mussolini some he began to remind them that Did you forget that there was a time when Fidel only ordered for your children to be killed? He ordered that your women to be kept alive he treated you like slaves Musa lesson begins to remind them of all the things that they were in all the predicaments they were in and how Allah subhanho wa Taala saved them. This was the very first time Bonita saw each showed that what kind of arrogant comb and an ignorant calm this is. Then after that, going forward now, you know they've learned they don't question anymore for a moment. And then Musala exam he goes to a place and they began to reside there. The Quran then says that

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

while they were there, ALLAH SubhanA center were here to Musashi ism, that he expects him to come to him and he told him that separate yourself

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

and leave your comb with how to not a histogram and come here and stay here for approximately 30 days and Musa Assam stay there for 40 days and so forth. And there ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada he gave certain messages to Musa alayhis salam. Now Musa alayhis salam he comes to Harun Adi he stood up, and he tells him that we'll call a Musa Alia he Harun all of NiFi Oh, me, what else the Hawala tibia similar obsidian that he's telling you how to not even some that I'm keeping you as my replacement for the time being, you understand Allah, you understand what we believe in. When you see these people going astray or going off the path, bring them back onto the path. That is your

00:05:43--> 00:06:25

responsibility. However, when Mussolini's son was gone, now there and so Taha Allah subhanho wa taala, even asked him who Salah is some, and later on, he even informed Musa Islam, about what is going on in your home now in his tribe or in the people but he saw there was a person by the name of Samiti. Salman he began to talk to the people he began to encourage people about that the the idea they had, which was to create an idol into worship an idol, that they should not just forsake that idea, and rather than should pursue that idea, and then he went to the people, and he said that all this gold that you have all this gold that you have, give it to me, he took it, he burned it, and

00:06:25--> 00:07:08

then he took it out, and he molded it into a shape of a calf. And that is when he began to tell the people that worship this now how not at some He's telling these people that this is not what you want to believe. And this is not the rub of Musa and Harun. This is not what we believe in. But what had happened was that by then so much damage had taken place and keeping in mind Musa your son was away for almost six to seven weeks. So just imagine what is going on all this time. So here Musa is some was away here, these people they are loud listening to somebody, they're taking orders from somebody, and they have ignored how not a histogram and this is why when he came now first of all

00:07:08--> 00:07:51

let's talk about also when Musa Hassan went to Allah subhanho wa Taala he said he wants to say Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala said to Musa Islam, he says Len terani You cannot see me what I can do either German there is a mountain. Look at that mountain for this Takara McKenna who for self autonomy for sofa terani that if you see this mountain, and from there you just keep on looking at this mountain and when this mountain is gone, you will see me but what had happened was that the Quran says Philomath Rob boule Jubilee gyla Who that can when Allah subhanaw taala made his descend on the mountain, the mountain turned into dust, and that in itself was such a big

00:07:52--> 00:08:34

catastrophic event that when the Musa ism saw this, he fell down unconsciously right in that place for Falco ALLAH SubhanA kotoba elago our meaning here Musa Assam did not did not want to object to Allah subhanaw taala he not say that he not say that he wants to see Allah subhanho wa Taala because he has any doubts in Allah subhana wa Tada but it just imagine you're talking to someone over and over again on the phone you just talking to someone. Now you will want to see that person, Allah and Musala you some are talking to each other. Allah is talking to Musa Musa is called gleam Allah for that reason that Allah is talking to him, but at the same time now Musa wants to see Allah subhanho

00:08:34--> 00:09:05

wa Taala Yet Allah subhanaw taala said that you cannot see me and Allah subhana wa Tada we the Quran mentioned what had happened to Musala Islam, but then that is where Musala Assam He is then later on informed about what is going on in his in his community. When we saw the sun came back and he saw he actually grabbed the Quran says he grabbed how not to use some by the beard. And he that's when he said Yeah, but I own my laptop could be Yeti, Allah below sea. Ohm.

00:09:06--> 00:09:50

Oh son of mother, Yamuna OMA Lata has been hated, do not grab me from the beard, and that is when he began to tell me he told me that I warned them. You think I did not say anything to them? I told them that is when Musala you Saddam. He said he made a dua to Allah subhana wa Tada. He says, Rob Bill fairly well. Yeah, he will interfere automatic, oh Allah forgive me and forgive my brother and enter us and into your Rama, me meaning bring us under your Rama. We are clearly in need of your mercy in this kind of situation. And then after that he confronted samedi and he he was he was very harsh with somebody. And then the Quran says I'm making the story short, that he then told samedi

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

that he is to be exiled from that community. He can no longer stay in that community, and then later on Mussolini Islam. That's the first thing that he did. The second thing that he

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

It was he took that a calf that people had begin worshipping. And he demolished it and he broke it, he broke it in front of them. And that is when he began to remind when he saw that this is the rub that you need to worship, that Rob is Allah subhanaw taala. And that is who you need to worship, not this calf that I have just broken. And then again, Musala ism was able to steer them away from that and bring them back on to remembering Allah subhanho wa taala. But yet we learned from the story of bunnies saw it, that you know, there was just something in their nature, something which is called ingratitude, arrogance, ignorance, these were things that were just in the, the nature of bunnies

00:10:43--> 00:11:21

saw and so the stories can be extended even longer. But as I've mentioned earlier, I don't want to focus so much on the story. I want to focus more on the the lessons and reflections learn from the story. So what are the things that we can learn from this story? The very first thing is that we learned once again the arrogance of bunnies saw it. Now why do you think Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned the bunnies saw in so many times in the Quran? Because we are an OMA just like bunnies saw it was an OMA and Allah Subhan Allah is telling us that O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, OMA and nation a Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. These were people who came before you these were

00:11:21--> 00:12:00

the crimes that they have committed. These are the wrongdoings that they had committed. If you follow the same path, then you will receive the same destruction of bunnies saw Eid, Allah subhanaw taala is telling us And subhanAllah you know, we may think that oh we don't follow necessarily bunnies saw Eve. But Subhanallah if you look today, at the current state of our Ummah, it is hard to say that we're not following the footsteps of bunny saw Ian, but he saw he just saw what happened to fit own. They just in front of them. They have a prophet, Prophet Musa Yusuf, they have Harun or they use Salam. They have you know, they have everything in front of them that they need to believe

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

in Allah subhana wa Taala which is no different than us. We have the Quran in front of us. We have the Sunnah in front of us. We have the life of the prophet saw in front of us that how did he apply the teachings of the Quran into his life as Aisha says that he is a walking and talking manifestation of the Quran. When you want to study the Quran, look at the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, we have that in front of us. We have in front of us the stories of the Quran, and yet today we look at the state of our Ummah today and we see today where we are going today we see that how far we have gone away from Islam. If this is not what bunny saw, indeed and

00:12:43--> 00:13:23

what are we doing? We are doing clearly what bunny saw II did. Allah subhana wa Tada says in the Quran, Abba bunny saw it that have taught me not to be bothered kitao what that proves about that they believe in some parts of the Quran, and they reject or they deny or if not deny, they overlook and they ignored the other parts of the Quran. Today you look at the Muslim ummah, that's exactly where we are today. There are some parts and some aspects of Sharia, that we very passionately we apply in our life and there are so many aspects of the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW sent them that we just completely discard. Today brothers and sisters, we are we are doing today many of

00:13:23--> 00:14:02

the things the money is so Ill had done. This is why this is a time that we make Toba to Allah subhanho wa Taala because the time that we've turned back to Allah subhanho wa Taala we repent over our sins. Today we look at this, the situation that we are living in the crisis that we are living in, and this is a moment that we come to Allah subhanho wa Taala we let go of our past and we become a better person rather than sisters. This is why Allah subhanaw taala he shares with us the stories of bunnies saw it and once again, what did we find for me? So the very first thing that we learned is that how arrogant they were to in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala not only that, but if you

00:14:02--> 00:14:42

remember a few weeks ago I share with you the story of Musa alayhis salam and the cow that What did he say to Musa you set up? That turkey dinner who's who? This is moosari Islam? This is him receiving a worry from Allah subhanho wa Taala you're calling this a joke. You think that Musa Ali Islam is making a mockery of you Subhan Allah. So this is why whatever we learn from us, allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we take that very, very seriously. And another thing that we learned is that many times we need to appreciate Allah subhanho wa Taala by focusing on our past, see Musashi isn't what did he do? He reminded them of the past so they can appreciate ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

Even the difficulties that we were going through in our past in our life, the fact that no longer those difficulties exist in our life. This is something that also is that it is a time where we think Allah subhanho wa Taala so to show our gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala is very important.

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

When we reflect on our past, so how many of us where we were 10 years ago, 20 years ago, and now where we are today, 20 years later, 100 we have a family 20 years later, we have a job. 20 years later, we have so many investments, we have so many things going on in our life. 20 years before we never had anything going on our life. That is where you think Allah subhanho wa taala. And you you should regret we show our gratitude to Allah subhanho wa taala. And another thing that we learned from the story is that every single community, and I mean it, every single community needs to invest, whether it's investing into their young, or investing into by bringing someone into their

00:15:43--> 00:16:20

community, but they need to invest into religious leadership. See, what we learn from the story of Mussolini Islam is that you have a personal icon. Now many of the older men have talked about that how not only Islam, in terms of his demeanor, he was not a very strong willed person. You know, you have a person like Mussolini, some he comes, he takes the bull by the horns, he takes charge. And here on the other hand, you have Hassan Ali, he's Salam, that here he's telling his people that this is not the right thing to do, do not listen to somebody, and yet they're ignoring him and so forth. So what we learn from this is that every single community you need to invest into your religious

00:16:20--> 00:17:03

leadership. And the best thing that you can do is that you invest from within, you invest from within, why do I say that? Is because Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, Matt, also not middle of Soudan elaborately sir and he called me he Liuba yella home and Surah Ibrahim Allah says that whenever we sent a prophet we sent a prophet from within them. See, when ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala wants to bring a certain community close to him, he will not send someone from outside within that community, he would send a person from within them to explain to people so that because they already have an understanding of who this person is. So this is why it's always very important that we try

00:17:03--> 00:17:43

to invest a lot of time say subhanallah, we find it within certain communities, that they are first few certain youth or youngsters that they want to go and they want to learn and study and educate themselves. And they want to come back and educate their community, then it becomes important for the community to invest within them, not just the parents who invested within them, but the community should invest in them. Because it's also important to understand that just because a person has a good way to speak, just because a person can just wow you through their words, or a person has a huge following and so forth. It that's not credentials. That's not that does not

00:17:43--> 00:18:19

necessarily mean that a person has knowledge credentials, knowledge credentials means or even me credentials mean that a person has gone and he has studied under allah Mal, he has studied within orlimar and he has learned from them and he is still in touch with them even till today, you study about our alumni of the past, that just because they graduated does not mean that they were done, they will always stay in touch with their books, their studies and their teachers and they will continuously learn from their teachers and so forth. So that's why you need to invest into your own local religious leadership and religious.

00:18:21--> 00:18:57

I will say people who can study their deen and so forth, and then not only that, but always make sure that when you when it comes to getting your knowledge, do not just get your knowledge from someone who claims to have knowledge or just because they can speak some somewhat well. Or sometimes they can just you know, they can say certain words that can really make you know, that can be really appealing to the audience. But no if they are if they are a scholar, then you get your knowledge from them and making sure that you know, there's something called a sencilla even when we study about our deen and our elements, so forth, we always learned that the possum taught the Sahaba the

00:18:57--> 00:19:38

Sahaba taught the tabular in the tabular in taught the double diverting and this is how Islam in knowledge and alone, they spread throughout Arabia in the in the so Condon area, and this is how we got our knowledge, so making sure that we know where are we getting our knowledge from? And the second thing as I said earlier, is that making sure that we invest in our own community. Another thing that we learn also from this from the story is that when you have a person who spreads corruption openly and they are harming other people now living in America, you cannot just simply exile a person from the community Musashi is some he exiled samedi from his community now you cannot

00:19:38--> 00:19:59

do that. So what do you do that kind of situation is weak, you keep people away from them, you keep people away from them and that kind of situation. There's absolutely nothing wrong to make people aware of a certain threat in a community or in a society and you should be calling. You know, call, call it out. You need to call out the problem by its name

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

and so forth, and make people aware that this is an imminent threat in our own community, so forth, and people should stay away from it. Especially when it comes to Iman, when it comes to the protection of our iman, of our children, our youth and so forth. They need to be openly educated, to stay away from certain things. Sometimes when it comes to our Islamic matters. When it comes to certain other matters of our society, in our community, we like to be very passive about it. We don't want to say something negative about it, and that's fine. But we have to teach our children and our youth to stay away from certain areas from certain people at times, and there is no shy in

00:20:36--> 00:20:57

those kinds of matters. I ask Allah subhanaw taala shall we'll go ahead and stop right here. I asked Allah subhana wa Taala to give all of us ability to understand these ayat of the Quran to understand these stories, and may Allah subhanaw taala give us ability to take a lesson from the stories and apply them in our life and middle blind I mean, does akmola had a Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
