Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome to another segment of conversations where we take a conversation that has taken place in the Quran, a story and we expand upon it and we learn from it. I ask Allah subhana wa Tada to give us the ability to learn from the stories and to make our life better and to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala Amira will Allah mean, the story that I have chosen today is a story that comes from Surah Al Qaeda, a story and a dialogue that takes place between Musa alayhis salam and when he saw him. So in Surah, al Qaeda before this, these ayat they began this is iron number 20 By the way, we're starting from and before it number 20. Allah subhana

00:00:53--> 00:01:37

wa Taala talks about the covenant and the commitment that Allah took from bunny saw. Brothers and sisters, the reason why stories are mentioned in the Quran is not so that they are just a pastime, so that we can listen to these stories and say, Man, that was an amazing story, but rather the objective and the purpose is to learn from the stories. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is in other words, he's telling us, oh ma Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. First of all, you are the best nation because Allah subhanho wa Taala has said contemplado OMA, but at the same time, there was a nation that came before you. And they weren't doing their time. They weren't the best nation. But I

00:01:37--> 00:02:20

gave and at the same time, I gave them a covenant just like I've taken a covenant from you. I had expectations from them, just like I have expectations from you, or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it is your job, it is our job, because we are the slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala we serve Allah that we are committed to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that means that whatever Allah has made halal, we take that and whatever Allah has made haram, we stay away from that, that is our covenant and to also recognize Allah as Rob as Allah subhanho wa Taala he has mentioned and Sunnah are off when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada created all of us. What did he say? He said, allow us to be Rob

00:02:20--> 00:03:04

become AMI, not your Lord AMI, not Europe. And we all said what? Bella indeed Oh Allah, You are our Lord. This is our covenant to Allah subhanho wa taala. So once again, Allah is telling the Ummah, Mohamed Salah Salem, I have taken a covenant from you. These are my certain expectations from you. And let me tell you, about a people, a group of people that came in the past, I had certain expectations from them too, but they never met their goals. And what did I do to them, Omar Omar Mohamed Salah Salem. Also learn your lesson that Allah subhanho wa Taala can also do the same to you. This is what these are why these kinds of stories are mentioned in the Quran. So let's get

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

straight into the story that's mentioned. This is a story that's by the way mentioned that whenever Allah subhanaw taala saved Bonita saw eel from fit own and his army and Allah subhanaw taala he destroyed fit around in his army.

00:03:20--> 00:03:43

And I want you to think about this. Imagine you are one of those people who is amongst bunnies. So at that time, you have just seen like you have just seen fit around being destroyed. You saw the power of Allah subhanho wa taala, The Quadra of Allah, I mean think about in front of your eyes, a sea parting, like probably we will never see this in our life.

00:03:44--> 00:04:29

A sea parting fit out is coming and a sea comes back together. And this man who claimed and by the way, fit on was the only person who disbelieve in Allah subhanaw taala, who claimed to be Malik Rob and Isla This is mentioned the Quran, he claimed to be all three. And Allah subhanho wa Taala showed him who is the true Rob, who is the one who has the most amount of power. If there was anyone who had doubts in mooses message at that time, by seeing what they saw, they will have no doubts anymore, none whatsoever. They will have complete conviction and Allah subhanho wa taala. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he gave Musa alayhis salam, an order that he wanted when he decided to

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

go and do something, but before that Allah subhanho wa Taala he said to Musa alayhis salam that remind them of Allah's blessings. So this is ID number 20. Let's begin ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, with Allah Musa Omi he, when we remember the time so this is Allah talking to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying that oh Prophet, we remember the time when Musa said to his people with guru Nia Amata Allahu alaykum that remember the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

Now before Musa could tell them what Allah wants from them Allah Musa Islam is reminding them Allah's blessings upon them. You know this is a very common thing that we find in the Quran. whenever ALLAH has certain expectations from us or he wants us to do something, Allah reminds us about his blessings upon us. Like you know go back to like for example, you look at Surah like sutra, Rahman,

00:05:28--> 00:06:12

Allah mentioned so many blessings and neuromas that he has given us, and what does he say over and over again, for me a Euro become Attica, Diva and the which of the Blessings of Allah and the near Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala will you reject? So Allah subhanho wa Taala He wants us to show our gratitude to him, he wants us that through our actions we say Oh ALLAH for everything you have given us, we are thankful to you Allah, and as we say, in English, actions speak louder than words. So this is why Allah subhanaw taala He wants us to do things for his pleasure. So Allah subhanho wa Taala he says here in the Quran, the Musa begins to remind them, and he reminds them of three

00:06:12--> 00:07:01

different blessings. The very first blessing that he reminds them of is, if Jhala freecom Ambia. The first blessing is the Obon is Eid. Allah subhanho wa Taala has made you such a great nation. And he has made you such a prestigious nation. And so blessing is so honor that Allah subhanho wa Taala he has sent so many prophets in your nation. You know, a nation always prides itself on his people or regarding his people. So imagine if there is a nation that produces many scientists, they usually claim and this is where they feel proud that this is our contribution to the entire world. So likewise, you hear Allah subhanaw taala is telling bunny bunny you saw in that there are so many

00:07:01--> 00:07:50

prophets that have come from your from you. And not only that, but this there is also able to be high team of the scholar of the past. He mentions in a narration mentioned by Amish that he says that from the time of Musa alayhis salam all the way to reciting Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent approximately 1000 profits. Now quickly on a slight tangent here I do want to explain or just mentioned very quickly, that there is something called a prophet and a messenger Prophet in Arabic is a Nabhi. It's Pearl is Ambia. And messengers are Rasul. And it's plural is loosen, and there are fewer must messengers than profits as a core according to a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi

00:07:50--> 00:08:35

wa sallam. The very first Rasool that was sent was either Malay Islam it was not Alayhis Salam, and according to how you the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he was asked that how many lawsuits were set in this dunya the Prophet alayhi salam said 300 and something and when he was asked about the Gambia, he said approximately 124,000 124,000 mbi were set in this world. So here we're talking about, Gambia that were sent to Bonita saw it so this is in itself a blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is the very first blessing there Musa reminds them of the second blessing the Mussolini son reminds them of is that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them power. Allah says once

00:08:35--> 00:09:19

again, what job hola como Luca, and he made you he appointed among you. And he made you possessors and he gave you, you know, kingdom and He gave you power and the oil amount and the scholars have discussed that what exactly does this power mean? Does this mean that we're talking about an actual King, and a lot of the scholars of the Quran, in fact, even our basil Yourtown he also mentioned that what do you call a king he says that anyone who has a servant, anyone who has a wife or a house, you call that person a king Qatada mentioned that the word Malik applies to a person who is well to do a person who has a home a person who owns property, a person who has family, so this is

00:09:19--> 00:09:59

what you call a king. So based on their definition of King and Malik, and we look what this means is that Allah subhanaw taala gave bunny star in financial stability. Now, you know, subhanAllah if you have ever studied political science, one of the two things that everyone in a society wants, its security and financial stability. Go back to the story of Ibraheem Alehissalaam when when Ibrahim Ali Sam first went to Makkah, what he asked for he asked for these two things. Yeah, Robbie aja. I'll have Ballard and Amina make this place safe mean that make this place secure. What is Allah

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

and provides sustenance, economic stability, financial stability. So this is something that people are always very concerned about, and the more the nation has is, the more they are prosper. So nonetheless, Allah subhanho wa Taala saying that he made you kings mean that you were living like kings, you all had financial instability. And you know, subhanAllah there's a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam that I would like to share with all of you watching, and this is a Hadith that really provides us some perspective. You know, if, if any of us were asked today, that what is that one thing that you would wish for? In terms of dunya? There is so much that we can ask for. If

00:10:40--> 00:11:20

someone asked us that, do you feel like you have the whole dunya and we will say of course, we don't have the entire dunya but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says something interesting, and I want to show this hadith, and this hadith will basically show us how much gratitude we need to show to Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, I think he's Salam menos Bahaman come more if and feed yesterday, whoever amongst you wakes up in the morning, while they have health in their body mean that they are healthy and mean and fi Sylvie and they are safe in their families. So meaning that once again they have health, they have security in the hoopoe, to me, he and they have provisions

00:11:20--> 00:12:05

for that day, not for two weeks, not for a week, not several days ahead. Only for that day, you have something to eat, and something will take care of yourself. promessa Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So it says, Anyone who has these three things, and I will tell you, honestly, most of us who are watching this video, we have all three things. We wake up, we wake up with health, we have security, and we have something to eat that day. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, he says, * a NEMA. He's at Lahore. Dunya. We had a fee ha the Prophet alayhi salam says, it is as if the entire world and all that in it was collected for him the Prophet alayhi salam is basically saying, if you have all these

00:12:05--> 00:12:48

three things is as if you have the entire world. Now how many of us can now we can say we have the entire world Alhamdulillah at least we have this much. So once again, going back to the deceit of this idea, the modalities that reminds them number one of that Allah gave you many Gambia, he said many Gambia within you number two, Allah subhanaw taala gave you so much of this dunya and finally, he says why? Kuma alum, ut ohada mineral al Amin, and Allah gave you Allah gave you something that he did not give to many people in this dunya you know, but he saw it once again. They were considered as the most prestigious nation we find in sort of baccarat not once but twice. Yeah, Bani

00:12:48--> 00:13:30

Israel, Ian with Curonian materiality, and I'm to La calm, or any football to Comala Lamine, I've given you preference and Felina over the entire world. So this is something this is an honor that was given to Allah subhanaw taala that was not given to many other many other nations before and after, except for the Omarosa Salam. And I do want to make this clear, because someone may ask is that if Allah said that they are the most prestigious nation, what about the OMA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? The quick answer to that is that when Allah subhanho wa Taala said that that was a nation that was most prestigious, but because once again what I talked about this

00:13:30--> 00:14:13

earlier, living up to your commitment and to our promise to Allah subhanho wa Taala because but he is so he never did that. Allah took that distinction and that honor away from them. And so this is why it's very important to understand this then Allah subhana wa Taala comes to the next idea, we're now Musa is about to tell them what Allah wants them to do. So first of all, Allah reminded them of his blessings. Now Allah is telling them what he wants them to do. He says yeah, poem Musa tells his people oh my people, oh, the whole herbal mocha certain Letty Khattab Allahu La Combe wanna terracotta duala atterberry come for 10 Polly boo ha serine Allah's Musala ism says, enter the holy

00:14:13--> 00:14:53

land which Allah subhanho wa Taala has assigned for you and do not turn your back from fighting and Allah has caused and thus you will become losers. Allah subhanho wa Taala is not only telling but he is sorry that I want you to go and not put your life on the line. He's saying that I want you to put your life on the line but at the same time he's saying that you will be victorious Khattab Allah Who let him Allah has written it for you. Now when people go to war, you have no idea who's going to come out as as the victor and who's going to come out as defeated. And it does not matter how many you know, we've seen so many different stories. And you know, history tells us about so many

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

different wars and battles that took place, that the one who has the most amount of resources they thought

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

They will be easily you know, they would, they will win the battle. But it just so happened that they lost the battle and the one who has who had less resources, they won the battle. So when you walk into a battle you usually don't know are you going to be on the winning side or on the losing end? But Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling bunny is slow in that you are going to win you are going to this is something Allah subhanaw taala has destined for you. The only thing I want you to do is to go to that land and fight for that land. That's all I'm asking you to do. Now quickly the question that many people may I ask is that this herbal Maha dasa, what is this in reference to now

00:15:41--> 00:16:24

even a cathedral with Allahu Allah in his seat, he has mentioned many different opinions given by many different scholars. Some say that this is in reference to bathe and muck does some say This is in reference to Jerusalem. Some say that this is in reference to a place near between the Jordan River and but with an MK Deus and so forth. Many of the Alama, in fact, have said that this is in reference to the land of Syria, and a sham. Now, one thing to keep in mind is that when I say a sham in our current day context, I don't mean by our the the country, Syria in itself, what this means is that long time ago, the area of Sham that they recognize that at that time, would consist of today,

00:16:24--> 00:16:54

a four countries primarily, it was it was Syria, Palestine, Jordan and Lebanon. So this entire land, okay, this entire area was known as Alden Makaha. And you know, without any doubt, if you go to these lands, anyone who has gone to these lands, and they have studied its historical richness, you will learn and you will see that there is so many, you know, grays of Gambia that we find over there so many different, you know,

00:16:55--> 00:17:06

institutions that we find, well, there's, you know, these places are very rich in Islamic history. Not only that, but when we talk about from an RPD point of view, when we talk about the, the

00:17:07--> 00:17:53

East Aliza some coming back into this dunya and where he will descend, the Prophet sallallahu is not mentioned that he will descend in Syria and in diminish in Damascus. So, nonetheless, this area is very rich in that sense. So Allah subhanho wa Taala saying, to go in conquer that land, otherwise, if you don't, then eventually you'll become losers now, at this point, Allah subhanho wa taala. He tells us now about what did what did they say? They said they began to provide excuses so Allah save them, then Allah reminded them of his blessings upon them. Then Musa lay some told them that this is what Allah's expectation is. Now we come to a number 22 That when expectations have been told, now

00:17:53--> 00:18:38

they are going to provide excuses so what did they say? Paul knew they respond to Musa by saying, yeah Musa in FY her old man Jabari and oh Musa, they're in that land lives a group of people that they are very tyrannical. They are very strong. The word Jabbar means someone who is extremely strong. Jabbar is one of the names of Allah subhanho wa taala. But interestingly, if you see the entire Quran, the word Jabbar has been mentioned 10 times, and it has been mentioned only once, which was in a job battle with a combat which is mentioned in sort of a hotshot at the very end. That is a one time that the word Jabbar has been used in reference to Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:18:38--> 00:19:23

Otherwise, anytime the word Jabbar has been used in the Quran, is in reference to a tyrannical group, a group that really imposes themselves upon other people. Now someone may ask is, if this is the meaning of Jabbar, then Allah subhanaw taala is not tyrannical. So how would we understand the word Jabbar in the context of Allah subhanho wa taala. And the answer to that is that what this means is that when ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala wants something, he will make it he will execute it and he will make his poem and he will make his poem he will make his people and his slaves and the entire dunya and his McCullagh do it, he is able to impose his will, on his on his creation. So this is

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

what Jabbar means in the context of Allah subhanho wa taala. Otherwise, anytime he was using the Quran, it was in reference to a tyrannical group. So what happened was that it was a nature and it was a habit of bunnies saw that they had 12 tribes, whenever they would travel, the leader of each of these tribes, they will travel collectively and they will bring their news back to their people. So it just so happened that these people they went to see what is going on. And they found them that these were people who were by the way as some of the automa and the fasciae have mentioned that they were remnants of the home of odd and peak

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

because they will remnants of coma ad. This is why they were very, they were very big they were very strong. And when they saw them they came back to Musa alayhis salam and they said that there is no way we're gonna go there is no way we're gonna go in fact what did they say to Mossadegh Islam in another hula, her Hatha Yoga regimen Ha, we are not going to enter this place till they leave for El rojo minhang For in the UK, you know, if they leave, we will then go and we will reside there and we will live there. But there is no way we're going to go and we're going to fight this. Now Musa alayhis salam you know, he's a nubby. He's a prophet of Allah. He has his Yaqeen and Kolkata and

00:20:39--> 00:21:20

Allah subhanho wa taala. He knows that if Allah subhanaw taala said the victory will be for them. He has no doubt. But he knows that Bonita Saeed Bonita star is still weak in their Iman. So he gave them very special instructions to all the 12 leaders of these 12 tribes, that whatever you know about these people do not convey this message to your to your tribe. But it just so happened that when these people they came, they went, and they began to privately tell some people and you know how things are in a society, you know, you know, something, you tell someone that look, I'm telling you something very privately do not tell anyone. And then after that, you know, slowly and gradually

00:21:20--> 00:22:00

spreads within the entire community. The second person will tell the third person that I'm telling you a secret don't tell anyone this is how things they spray in a society. And so likewise, this is how that new spread in the society and people they came now, amongst the 12 leaders of the of the of these tribes is 12 tribal leaders. There were two people there were two and the the Pharisee. They mentioned that who are these two people one was you shall be known. And the other one was partly been Ukraina. These were two people that they understood when Musa Hassan was trying to tell them and they did not tell their people about it. Now there are people they found out from other people,

00:22:00--> 00:22:43

but they fulfilled their commitment to Musala Assam by now telling other people because of this, this was so beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah subhanho wa Taala he began to he actually mentioned these two in the Quran. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says Paula Raju LAN now here's here's what's happening. Musa if someone's telling these they come to Musa they said we don't want to fight. There's no way we're gonna go. Now these two people are going to try to, to talk to talk to them, and they're going to try to knock some sense into them. That why the best thing for you is to go in fight in the Cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala so Allah says call a radula anaemia, Lavinia

00:22:43--> 00:23:27

homophone said the two men, the two men from those who feared what does that mean fear? Who are they fearing over here? Or they're fearing that they may lose their lives? Or are they from Allah? subhanho wa taala? The answer is that they were fearing Allah subhanho wa taala. So meaning that there's hope in their life that we have to stick to what Allah subhanaw taala wants from us. And not only that, but the Quran says, I'm Allahu La Hema ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala bestowed His favorite upon them. What was the Nirvana and the what was the blessing that Allah bestowed upon them. It was the blessing of Taqwa and piety, the the blessing of obedience. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says they

00:23:27--> 00:24:09

feared Allah and they are taqwa, piety and obedience in their life. And they said it the Hulu regime will Bab for either the hull to move in a coma hollobone, these two people are telling them that enter through the gates. And when you enter it, you will be successful you will be the predominant party and the predominant group you will be able to succeed to be successful and defeat your opponent. And then they said while Allah He felt what Curlew enquanto mean, are you a believer like they would ask them? Are you believers? Like yes, we are believers? Didn't you just see that Allah subhanaw taala helped us? Allah saved us from fear on and so forth? Don't you believe in Allah

00:24:09--> 00:24:30

subhanho wa taala? Yes, we believe in Allah. If you believe in Allah, then put your reliance in Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, here comes the response of Vanessa in. And before I give you the response, I want to give you a practical example that happens in most of our lives. Imagine you're talking to someone,

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

something is simple. And you're sitting there and giving them a huge lecture about it, why you should do with why you should do it, why you should do it. And all of a sudden, they're, you know, they're quiet, they're listening to you, they're listening to you. And then what will tell us if they have truly been affected or not, it's how they will respond. Like, you know, a lot of parents they get really upset at their children. Like when they sit there with their children, and they give them like a whole lecture, you know, like, how and why

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

You should care about your studies your education, you know, the importance of going out and working hard, being committed, dedicated,

00:25:09--> 00:25:26

being diligent and you know, doing all these kinds of things. And just imagine if after giving them a whole lecture and talk to them for such a long time, if your children they just like if you ask your children, like what did you take from all this and they go like,

00:25:27--> 00:25:30

like, you know, like that really drives parents crazy

00:25:32--> 00:26:13

that I gave you such a long talk, and that is your reaction. Like I would expect that your reaction would be different. And this is something that we see many times I'm sure many of us have been through this and we have been on the other side where we have given that talk and the person in front of us, they simply are just oblivious and they don't care. So this is something similar to this happens to bunny saw these two people it's not Musa was talking to them. This these two people, these two men, they are coming and trying to knock some sense to bunny saw eel and Bunny saw eel. Their response is what Yeah, Musa in Lana, the hula Abba. You know, first of all, they said we will

00:26:13--> 00:26:55

not enter it, we will not enter that city. Now the take even a step forward. And they're like, and their arrogance just goes to a whole new level and they're like, now we will never enter that city. Like after hearing these two men talking to them. Their response instead of being positive, it's even more negative. And so that gives you an idea that what kind of a heart the bunnies thought you'd have Allah subhanaw taala saying that they responded to Musa by saying in the hola Abba, Madame Wolfie, ha. As long as these people are there, we will never go. And if you truly want this land, if you if Allah truly wants us to go, and you know, take that land over, then we have another

00:26:55--> 00:27:35

solution. And this is where their arrogance comes into picture. They said faith hub Anta whare booka. Fatah Tila in Na Hoona kar Aidan, you know, our idea is and our suggestion is that why don't you and Allah go and fight and we're gonna be here we will sit here we will, will you know we will be spectators. And meaning that whenever you and Allah have gone and you have conquered, then you you let us know and then inshallah we'll move in. Like, you know, just think about the arrogance. Allah subhanaw is not telling you to go and fight and there's no you have no idea what the outcome is going to be. Allah is telling you go and fight and you know, openly decide you know what the

00:27:35--> 00:28:16

outcome is going to be? Yes, you're gonna have to put some hard work into that. But at the same time, the Promise of Allah is there. And you know, subhanAllah This is what Bani is saw in was, and it was after this, that Musa alayhis salam said enough is enough. Like, you know how many times I tried to explain to you and how much I've dealt with you how much you have seen, you know, Allah has, you know, the power of Allah subhanho wa taala. And yet, this is how you behave. In fact, before I get to the next idea where Musa lism, he totally gives up on them. There is a story that's mentioned, that relate to the story of in the battle better. As we all know, if you say the seal of

00:28:16--> 00:28:59

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that butter was a battle where the odds were against the Muslims. It was 1000 versus 213. The Kurdish were armed, the Muslims were not armed. The Kurdish had many resources. They had many animals. The mussels hardly had anything. And there was a Sahabi of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who came those hobby who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the person was making dua to Allah subhanho wa taala, asking Allah's help, and the Sahaba he comes, and he provides his assurance, and he's telling the prophets of salaam O Prophet of ALLAH, do not worry about it. We are not like bunnies here. We are not like the comb of Musa who

00:28:59--> 00:29:40

turns her back on musante Assam and they said to Musa filehub until rabuka For Katya in Ha ha Naka, I don't, we will never do that to your prophet of Allah, we will protect you from all four sides, and we are going to be with you. And when the Prophet SAW he heard this, when he heard this, this brought this joy, this you know, this joy in his happiness to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I know that no matter what my Sahaba are going through, and they may feel like you know, in terms of materialism, they don't have as much as the kurage do. But this is as long as this is their attitude. This is bringing me happiness and joy. And so we see the distinction the difference

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

between bunnies Saeed and the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this brings us to the next idea where Musa alayhis salam was basically saying enough is enough. What did he say? He says rugby in Nila amico in LA FC walkie Oh Allah. Indeed I do not possess except for myself and my brother, meaning that

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

I can only have control over myself and my brother. Well, he Fuff Robaina obeying a common philosophy and this is a nation that is considered as disobedient and Oh ALLAH disconnect me and make us part make us apart from them do not make us with them. Like Musa Allah Islam he is so so fed up of their arrogance and their disobedience, and how many times they're talking to Allah subhanho wa Taala in a way that is not that is not appropriate for anyone to talk to Allah subhanaw taala or anyone to talk about Allah in this way yet, but he saw in they have shown over and over again that this is how they are behaving. Finally, Allah subhanho wa Taala in this passage, he says, Paula for

00:30:45--> 00:31:32

in maha Rama to nollie him, or robar in Santa Fe, or te Huna Phil are all fairly common faceting now here in the previous Eisah, Musa alayhis salam, he referred to them as a common Facetune here in this ayah Allah subhanaw taala. Again, he referred to them as a common fast clean, he says then indeed Allah said then indeed it is forbidden to them for 40 years. And what will happen in those 40 years? Yeah, T Hoon fill out they will wander throughout the lands. And this indeed happened that when they showed their arrogance to Allah subhanho wa taala. And to Musa Musa says, Enough is enough, then what happened was that there was a land that Allah subhanaw taala trapped them in this

00:31:32--> 00:32:15

land of tea, as mentioned, for 40 years mean that they have for 40 years, they had no idea they will travel, they will try to get out of this land. But for 40 years, think about this extended period of time, Allah is showing them and teaching them a lesson that you don't ever show your arrogance to Allah subhanaw taala when Allah has certain expectations from you, fulfill those expectations, try to fulfill those expectations. So because of this, they were trapped in this in this land of tea for 40 years. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, And do not grieve over people who are considered disobedient. So here Allah subhanaw is telling to Musa Ali Hassan because every prophet, no matter

00:32:15--> 00:32:53

even Musa lay some says, I'm done with these kinds of people. He never prayed against them. Okay, he never prayed against them. But he says I'm done. And when Musala summon any other profit when they were see their people going through difficulty, it was still hurt their heart, Allah subhanaw taala saying, Do not grieve over these kinds of people, you know, what they have done? And you know, some automat and some scholars have questioned that why 40 years? Was it is there a significance behind the 40 years and suddenly want to might have mentioned on there was not any kind of significance to it. Some have given this explanation, that there is a complete Generation Change over after every 40

00:32:53--> 00:33:32

years like there is after every 40 years. There's a new generation that comes into the picture. And this is how you know, you know, if you study history and histories of people and nations, every for every 40 year, there is a generational change that takes place. Now this is the story. As I said, we're talking about conversations. This was a conversation between Musa alayhis salam and but he has taught you now some of the lessons that quickly we learned from this is number one, that whenever we whenever Allah subhanaw taala wants from us something, Allah Subhan Allah reminds us of His blessings. So we need to show our gratitude to Allah subhanho wa taala. I talked about this before.

00:33:32--> 00:34:15

The second thing that we learned is that going back to the idea where Musa Hassan was reminding them of the blessings. The first busing was I'm asking this question, hopefully you remember this. The very first busing that was that he reminded them that Allah sent them um, BIA. And the second thing that they were reminded of was that Allah subhanaw taala gave them like, you know, materialism, Allah subhanaw taala gave them Luca. Now maloca is dunya Ambia What do Ambia do? They call you to Allah subhana wa Taala they remind you of the akhira they remind you of Allah's promises and Allah's punishment upon those people who are disobedient. The fact that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned I'm

00:34:15--> 00:34:42

BIA the NAM of Gambia before more Luca. There is a lesson in this, that when it comes to our worldly life in every single matter of our life. Our Deen comes first our deen comes first before dunya once again there is nothing wrong in attaining dunya as long as it does not contradict our deen or it does not make us compromise our deen you know when I was a kid I

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

you know several times I would hear people say that oh you cannot have a lot of wealth. You know, when I was a kid I traveled different places I even went overseas one time like Pakistan when I was you know when I was a kid and you know used to hear always these kind of hot buzz even here in America we hear these kinds of hot buzz

00:35:00--> 00:35:40

that oh you cannot have wealth and you cannot have wealth. There were Sahaba who were extremely well off. You studied the story of automotive and often he was very well off. You study studied the history and the biography of Abraham and Alfred the author and he was very well off. There's nothing wrong in being rich. As long as you do not compromise your deen you understand what is halal and what is haram? And not just Halal haram but in chasing dunya if you begin to leave your salad, if you begin to lose your reliance on Allah subhanho wa Taala then this is also a compromise in your deen. So importantly, what we learned from that idea is that Dean come before dunya and every aspect

00:35:40--> 00:36:22

of our life. The second another thing that we learned from these stories is the cowardness of when he saw in Allah subhanho wa Taala is teaching us from these stories is that our job as a human being is that we have to go and we have to make the effort. This is what Tawakkol is, in essence, what exactly is the workload? The workload is four things the workload is to put your trust in Allah subhana wa Taala by having full Reliance ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is to hold on to Allah by making dua. It is thinking positive and having the hostile one with Allah subhanho wa Taala and not and not doubting in Allah. And finally, by adopting the means to accomplish the task, which is to make the

00:36:23--> 00:37:08

effort and then after that we put our token in Allah subhanho wa taala. But our job is to make the effort in the story of the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa sallam giving Dawa to his uncle Abu Talib. And when his uncle did not accept Islam, Allah subhanaw taala taught us in Nicoletta Hadith and above Allah is telling the Prophet of Islam, you cannot give you that whoever you whoever you want. Your job, oh prophet of Allah is to make the effort go and give Dawa to everyone. Now, who does Allah give guidance to that is Allah's decision. We also we do our hard work and we put the rest in the hands of Allah subhanho wa taala. We also learn the crudeness and the arrogance of the people of

00:37:08--> 00:37:42

Bani Astok II and, you know, a lot of times we show arrogance to Allah subhanho wa Taala by saying, though I cannot do such and such, Allah says, you know how many times you hear Muslim people or Muslim saying today? Oh, why did Allah subhanaw taala give us five times daily prayers? Doesn't Allah know? Like, I've heard people saying this Subhan Allah, that people are saying that some people have said, does it Allah know that we have a very busy life? Like this is a sign of arrogance? Like does it Allah Subhan Allah know this and that Allah Subhan Allah know that to say that, does it Allah know what what the situation and this pandemic there were going through? Does

00:37:42--> 00:38:26

that ALLAH SubhanA see what we're going through? Why is he doing this? These are words, that when we say these kinds of things, these are these can be considered and categorized as arrogance, you know, showing this rudeness to Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is why we learn from money aside, that we cannot do these kinds of things. And finally we learn from the story of Musa alayhis salam, when he said he surrendered and he said, I cannot do anything anymore. What we learned from this is that our job, especially if you're in the field of giving Dawa, your job is Walmart, are they not in Alberta, when when you are simply a mailman Your job is to deliver the mail. Like, you know, when a mailman

00:38:26--> 00:39:05

delivers the mail, he doesn't care whether the household is going to open that mail, they're going to shred it, he doesn't care. He's the mailman. He's going to deliver that message and that mail. That's all he does. Likewise, when it comes to giving Dawa, that's all that we can do. We can only convey the message. We cannot change anyone's heart. We cannot force anyone to do anything. And the last thing I would say is that when bunnies saw you show their arrogance to Allah subhanaw taala What did Allah say? He trapped them in a valley for 40 years or in the land for 40 years, and they have no idea where they're going. Some of them I have said that because of where we are today as OMA

00:39:05--> 00:39:45

of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, how far we have gone from Allah subhanho wa taala. Luca today, the Muslim world the way it is, nation after nation, Muslim nation after Muslim nation, and the way we are as an ummah today is not just about the fact that we have that we have the fastest growing religion. But if you just look at the entire Muslim nation right now the way it is, we have no idea where we're going. We really have no idea where we're going, you know, who's doing what and so forth. We're all lost in some capacity. And I know that those who are watching this video you may disagree with me in this, but that's the way that many people they see this the way they when they

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

when they analyze the current situation on Muslims. And you know what we are supposed to do? I mean, we are so many on this land on this earth, yet, how much are we doing? So some have said that peak

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

As we have neglected our responsibilities and our commitment to Allah subhanho wa Taala today we're all lost as an ummah. So ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala that first of all, May He give us the ability to learn from the stories to take admonished him from the stories and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us the ability to come back to him, especially in times like these, while we're going through this pandemic, may Allah subhanho wa Taala relieve us from this. And we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to give us a sense of renewing our iman and went away. Let us renew our commitment to Allah subhanho wa taala. If I have committed sins, that's the past, let's change our life going forward, it can

00:40:40--> 00:41:19

happen, we have to just come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala there is nothing wrong if we have neglected Allah all this time. And now times are tough and we want to come back to Allah. And we may be thinking that, you know, I feel like I feel hypocritical, that you know, when times are tough, I'm coming to Allah subhanho wa Taala I don't feel right, that's wrong. You're thinking wrong. Honestly. In times like these, Allah wants us to come back to him. That's why sometimes Allah brings these kinds of circumstances. What Allah does not like is that when Allah saves us, when Allah subhanaw taala removes this calamity. If we were to go back on our original state, in our back to

00:41:19--> 00:41:37

our original behavior in our lifestyle, that is far from if it is far from Allah subhanaw taala that's something that Allah does not like. So ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to give all of us ability to learn from the stories of the Quran, learn the lessons from them and implement them in our life. I mean, bla bla bla mean, Zack Mala Hey Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
