inshallah I just want to take a very important lesson from the, for the life of Musa alayhis salam, and from the story of Allah subhanho wa taala, sending him as a prophet to fit our own. And there's a very important lesson to be learned in this. First of all, is that many times in life when Allah subhanho wa Taala puts us puts us in a situation, if the situation is easy for us think about this, how many times we've come across difficulties, or what people may perceive as difficulties. And you look at the situation you say, You know what, this is easy for me to Hamdulillah I can easily crush this, I'll get through it, and you get through it at home delivery easily. The problem is when there

00:00:40--> 00:01:19

are situations that come upon us in life, that we don't know what to do in those kinds of situations, that is where we, you know, we usually become cold feeded we usually don't know what to do. And that is where we become very worried. How will this impact my life? How will this situation affect my family? How will that affect my finances? How will that affect my comfort of life? So the question is, what do you do that kind of situation? What do you do when you are in self doubt? What do you do when you're in a situation when you doubt your own abilities? And that is what we learned from the story of Musa you sit down. So you have to understand the Musa you Salam is this traveling

00:01:19--> 00:02:02

windy with his wife, and as the Quran mentions that, you know, when they were traveling, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada use the plural verb, which means that it was him, his wife, and some of the automa has speculated that at that time, Mussolini's son was expecting their child. And then Allah subhanho wa taala, he calls moosari Islam, Mussolini, some tells his family stay here. I'm going to go and bring some fire, bring some fire, bring some water and so forth. And in the middle of all that nothing moves out of you. Sam is enjoying his life. He's with his in laws, he's spending his life he has job security, he has a house to live in. Everything's going perfectly normal. And all of us say

00:02:02--> 00:02:47

Allah subhanho wa Taala says Musa Your days of comfort are over. Now you have a very big task ahead of you. And this task was not a small task. It was a great task. It was a very uncomfortable task. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling Musa you some I want you to go back is Hubby elf it owner in Naruto go back to sit down now the reason why this is difficult is why because number one where did Mousavi son grew up in whose house did he grow up in fifth Alan's house and use the you okay if you have to, if you want to go back to someone that who does not know you, you know you have a fresh new start. But hear Allah subhanaw taala saying go back to the person who raised you go back to the

00:02:47--> 00:03:30

person in whose house you were raised. And he knows you He knows your personality. He knows your demeanor, He knows your temperament. So go back to that person not only that, but now Mussolini's some also understands that if I'm gonna go back, I'm going back with a crime on my on my shoulders. Because 10 years ago, he fled from from Egypt and he went to Medina and it is not like Finland has forgotten because when he went back to Fit own what if your own say, you know with so much sarcasm will file to file at the Kennedy for alto Anthony caffine didn't you do something? You know, Musa I know what you did. You know, I know what what you did to that person. No one else may remember here

00:03:30--> 00:04:15

but I remember what you did. Now you're trying to come and giving us a lecture. You're trying to come and try to be this big, righteous person. I know your crimes. I know your weaknesses. You know people they use weaknesses to gain dominance over someone else. So here so Musa remembers all this. And not only that Mussolini has was having some has a speech impediment. Not only that, but his own home his own nation are enslaved by fit own. So now who's telling you something's going against all these obstacles? You have to understand this and not only that, but he's expressing these obstacles too. He says yeah, rugby in a half you can leave on I feel that he's gonna He's gonna complete deny

00:04:15--> 00:04:57

whatever I call him towards way a vehicle Saudi My heart my chest is tightened meaning that I'm feeling feeling very uncomfortable in going into this kind of situation where you're legal Saudi wala young, politically Sunni, and mice, my tongue cannot utter the proper speech in order to bring him closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. And not only that, but then he says, one of whom Allah yet Dunboyne he there was a Do you remember? Oh Allah, that there was a warrant of arrest out for me. That's why I left Egypt like Did you forget all this, that this is my situation? So what do we do in that kind of situation? Because once again, Allah subhanaw taala saying, Yeah, Musa I remember all

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

these kinds of things. You still go back to this person. So

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

The question is that what do we do when we are in a situation like this? How many times we are put in situations in life, we don't want to be, you know, life is going on very well. But then all of a sudden there's an obstacle that comes in our life. There's a situation that Allah subhanaw taala puts us in. So the question is, what do we do and how do we handle these kinds of situations? The first thing is that you always accept the culture of Allah subhanho wa taala. That's a very first thing. Right now in southern Fajr. I recited a verse I, the second guy, I recited verses from Sudan in sun in that Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in Zanna alagille, Quran it and Zira we have revealed

00:05:38--> 00:06:24

the Quran upon you, or Muhammad sallahu wa salam, and then he says a Jalla wa Ala first believe me, Rob big, be patient on the Hakama of Allah, what does that mean the pocket of Allah, the cadet of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala and then he says, wala Tutera do not obey do not listen, do not follow who theaman oka fura the person who is a sinner, and number two is Oka Fula the person who is ungrateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala usually those who are not, okay those who are complaining about the other, they always are taking advices from those who are ungrateful to Allah subhanho wa taala. And especially the the one who is the most ungrateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala shaytaan Pinochet

00:06:24--> 00:06:59

thanda is when she thought it comes right that you read the Quran you read a lot, you do so much for Allah subhanho wa Taala you do so much for Islam, you are so righteous, you are so pious, your family is pious and so forth. And yet you are in these kinds of difficulties, difficulty after difficulty. But remember, the Prophet SAW Allah while he was there was no one who was more righteous than Rasul Allah is Allah who it was sent him yet how many difficulties that he had to go through in his life. So this is not a sign by the way, I've talked about this before. Having challenges in our life is not necessarily a sign that Allah subhanaw taala is upset with us. It could also mean that

00:06:59--> 00:07:41

Allah Subhanallah is upset with us. But it does not necessarily mean that only and only that lesson behind what is upset with us. So Allah says in the Quran festival, Nirach Mira, big, be patient with the product of Allah subhanho wa taala. And while you're going through that difficulty, do not fill your ears with the speech and the talk of those who are ungrateful to Allah subhanho wa taala. So the very first thing is, we have to be content with the power of Allah subhanho wa taala. Number two is Do not overlook, I mean, look, I mean, of course the opposite obstacles are there ahead of you, but accept them and learn how to move on. Why? Because every single challenge of course, every

00:07:41--> 00:08:18

single good comes with some challenges. There are some challenges and then there is some good times there is never a situation where a person says I want to be that in a good situation. And he does not have to go through difficulties. When we talk about Jana does Jana is Jana just given to us? No. We have to work for our agenda. When you look at the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yes, there was a time when then you know full many folds were coming to Islam, a entire tribes were coming to Islam. But did this happen on day one of the life of the prophets? I said no, you have to go through difficulties in life you have to go through challenges in life in order to see the good

00:08:18--> 00:09:01

day. So if you want to do not overlook, overlook the obstacles ahead, but accept them and learn how to move forward with them. And of course, this is where the third thing is, we always ask Allah subhanho wa Taala we always make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is where Mousavi Assam he did exactly that what do I do he make the very well known do I What do I do he make rubbish rally Saudi were silly Emery, this is a him making dua and by the way, this is a dua you can recite in any kind of situation. When you feel uncomfortable, even like before you give a presentation before you're about to speak and before someone sometimes there's a very high ranking position or person, a

00:09:01--> 00:09:43

person of position and you feel you know, you feel very uncomfortable, you're not ready to speak in front of that kind of person. If there's ever a situation when you are in this rubbish rally Saudi way assembly, I'm the one on the opposite the melissani Fo Foley. You can recite this dua anytime, but the point is making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala is a third thing that we should always do. The fourth thing, final thing that we should do is that always ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala for for support, or always try to look for some kind of support. When we talked about musalla your son what kind of support the he asked for? He asked for his brother how to learn how to not do to be sad, why

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

should it Kofi Emily, that as Oh Allah subhanaw does send me a Harun with me And subhanAllah how to not let your son was there step by step with musalla your son and so forth. Not only that, but in life we cannot get through challenges if we're all alone by herself. Once that

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

And in the, in the verse from sutra Insan, Allah Subhan Allah is telling us Do not be with those who are ungrateful to Allah subhana wa taala. But on the other hand, when there are challenges in life, it is always good to have people by your side, there are sola sallahu alayhi wa sallam, he always had the Sahaba by his side, when you study as hobbled curve, it was not only one teenager, it was only one youth who was actually there just protecting his Iman, there was an entire group of youth, and an entire group of teenagers. When you are around others who are in the same dilemma as yours in the same challenge as yours, it becomes a little more easier to get through that challenge, it

00:10:40--> 00:11:18

becomes a little more easier to get through that challenge. It's a well known fact of life. So that is why we always try to look for support within our own community, within our own family. So once again, these are four things that whenever we find ourselves in a difficult situation, and an uncomfortable situation, when there is self doubt, once again, we do these four things number one was what again, being contented with the father of Allah subhanho wa Taala number two is learning how to accept that these are the obstacles and learning how to get through them in every single situation. And of course at that time, you are you're not ignoring the obstacles, but you are

00:11:18--> 00:11:41

determined that you will get through them Inshallah, number three is making dua to Allah subhanho wa taala. Number four is that finding support within your own community or within your own family and inshallah with these four things, we will be able to get through any kind of difficulty in life Inshallah, ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to give us strength in this dunya and akhira amigabit Ottoman does that Kamala Hey salam Wa alaykum to low brachetto
