Salam Alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh for which the abdomen bundeena Ramadan andina alumna, Camila Donna Alma Shanti. Somebody was silly me Ratan Tata melissani of Coco Lee, slobbering guys I know I haven't been on Facebook Live and YouTube Live for some time, I just wanted to give you guys a glimpse of what I've been up to the reset of the sort of gap series has begun. I started from the story of Musa and Haven, which is the 63rd of the surah. And I'm doing a lecture series both in English and in ooredoo on it. And what I decided to do as part of the series is actually something I've been wanting to do for many, many years. And that's collaborative study. What that means is I

00:00:41--> 00:01:18

have my own thoughts, reflections and findings on a particular idea. But I also wanted to get a group of people that I studied the Quran with and discuss my findings, and then share the thoughts with them, and they share their thoughts and reflections with me. And that collaborative learning project has also begun, it's part of the series. So we're having multiple sessions like that. And today we have such a session all of these recordings, both the English series and I'm reproducing the work in Urdu also, the order series is also being posted on bina.tv. You can see the description in underneath this video. So what I wanted to do today in just a minute, is just share with you just

00:01:18--> 00:01:55

one takeaway that we had today in our discussion, we're talking about the IRR, both Musashi Sam and his student, you shy by noon, they end up meeting this person that Allah wants them to meet and how Allah described him. And so let's have fun with each other. I'm dominated by Dina, they both found a servant from among our servants. And just this, here's the quick reflection, most Ali Salaam is one of the most knowledgeable human beings ever on earth. And Allah talks about him in the Quran more than anybody else. I've said that many times to you guys. And Allah sent him on a journey to learn from this one person. So this person is really special. And after this long exhaustive journey, when

00:01:55--> 00:02:32

he finally meets this person, Allah describes this person as just one of our servants of the military body. Now, there is a remarkable humility in in that phrase, as if to allow what's what makes you the most special is your humility, not your knowledge, it doesn't matter how much you and I learn the fact that we can humble ourselves and consider ourselves still yet among the people. So because I know something more than you do in Islam or anything else, doesn't make me some elite special class, and I belong to a different category. And you have to use a title for me or some kind of, I need to have some kind of special outfit that distinguishes me from you. I'm just one among

00:02:32--> 00:03:08

the saints. Allah sees me as a slave among all of us slaves. Some of his slaves are farmers, some of his fleet slaves ride camels, some of his slaves are scholars, some of his slaves are even prophets and teachers of prophets, but that's okay. All of them are in this equal category. So beautiful, beautiful takeaway about the power of humility that comes from the height of knowledge and I pray that we take that away with us and inshallah, I'm hoping that you guys catch the entire series. I'm really excited about it and there's so much to learn from it, and I'm hoping that inshallah before the end of the year we can complete it also barakallahu li walakum wa salaamu alaykum wa rahmatullah
