Bismillah al salatu salam wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. And welcome to amazed by the Quran, a series in which I'd like to share with you what I find amazing about the Quran. Today I want to talk to you about two prophets and their unique manners. These two prophets are Ibrahim and Musa alayhis. Salam, as described in a very subtle way in solid ashara sort of shot I saw number 26 of the Quran. So let me first tell you some things about the sewline how its laid out. This surah is actually made up of it dedicates quite a bit of its space to the narrative between Musa alayhis salam, and around first Moses and Pharaoh the debate between the two of them.

00:00:36--> 00:01:15

And then it switches over and talks exhaustively about different prophets and how what they had to tell their people was identical. So the passages in the surah actually repeat themselves quite a bit. So one of the things that the prophets keeps saying to their people is, Well, look, I'm only human. I'm not asking you, you know, for any compensation for what I'm telling you, I'm not looking to get paid by you, for preaching you to this message to you in a de la de la or in Nigeria a lot a lot. My compensation is only I'm only relying on you know, for it on Allah, I only depend on the law for that compensation are behind I mean, the master of all our bill, I mean, the master of all the

00:01:15--> 00:01:49

peoples of all all the nations. In other words, these profits are keeps, he continues to say, I'm not asking you for money. I'm not asking you for money. I'm not asking you for money. So this is repeated on the tongue of new slowly, sure, I have excetera, etc. They keep saying the same thing over and over again. But you find even though that's so consistent to profits that don't say this, so you have what laleham Nava Ibrahim, you know, recite onto them read on to them. The news of Ibrahim is called Ali COVID. He, you know, he will call me Mata don't listen to his father and his people, what are you worshiping? So he didn't say I'm not asking you for compensation like everybody

00:01:49--> 00:02:27

else. And, and the other profit, you don't find saying this in the surah. That everything else is so consistent is Moosa, which is awesome, because Ibrahim alayhis salam is going to be preaching to his dad. And his dad raised him, and his dad spent money on him. So it's really rude and obnoxious to say, I'm not asking you for money. Well, you already have. I've already raised you already. You've already lived under this house. Every night that you go to sleep under this, under this roof is me spending money on you. So he understands that his father has actually made sacrifices, financial sacrifices for him. So he's not going to bring that up like all the other prophets. Did. You know,

00:02:27--> 00:02:46

this is part of his mannerism. You know, we're learning that there's, there's Yes, the message of all prophets is the same, but there's sensitivities. And there's, you have to acknowledge the good even the disbelievers that his father builds idols, his father builds idols, but he's not going to say to him, I don't need your money. socket is not going to talk to him like that. That's hurtful.

00:02:47--> 00:03:23

That'll help you understand why even Moosa wouldn't speak like that to fit our own. He's not gonna come back after years, receive revolution up on the mountain, come back storming into the castle and say, I'm not asking you for money, why not? Because he was raised there. He lived there, his whole youth, he was taken care of, and his mom was taken care of, what telcordia matamanoa la as a matter of fact, he says that is in fact a favor that you've done for me, he acknowledges the favor. The point here, first of all, is to highlight the subtlety, and the craft with which the message of Islam has to be delivered on the one hand, but on the other hand, for believers in general, the

00:03:23--> 00:03:59

amazing lesson being being taught here is just because you're preaching even the worst enemy of Islam. I mean, these are two of the worst, right? I mean, this, this person is in charge of building idols for his, you know, his people. And then, I mean, I don't have to describe to you how epic the evil of phenomena is. And yet, in both of their cases, if there's a good to be acknowledged, or if something should shouldn't be said, because it's just not right, your anger towards them shouldn't get you to say it. And the strength with which you want to deliver the message to them shouldn't get you to just say something about them, or something to them that just stopped the fitting. So Pamela,

00:03:59--> 00:04:34

our manners are timeless, the message is timeless, but the manners that with which the message is to be delivered is also timeless. We can never compromise it. And get don't get overzealous and trying to get a point across and say things you're going to regret especially to loved ones, especially to family. That's when that's when our kind of our our filter goes off right? It's it's easy to get frustrated with family and say things that you would never say to anybody else. Never say to anybody else. And that's why you have to be extra sensitive when you talk to your family milazzo don't give us the wisdom of these remarkable prophets and help us share the message of this beautiful Dean with

00:04:34--> 00:04:42

loved ones in a way that will make them love our manners before they even love the message we have to share barakallahu li walakum wa salaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
