Channel: Nouman Ali Khan
Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan acquaints us with the lessons imparted to us from an amazing individual that fascinates our imagination in the Qur’an and he is Musa AS. His narrative is mentioned at around 70 places in the Qur’an and every time we hear it’s mind-boggling.
Prophet Musa (AS) is the most commonly mentioned Prophet in the Noble Quran. Prophet Musa AS was born at the time of Fir’aun. Muslims believed in all Messengers of Allah SWT and Noble Books which were revealed to them. Prophet Musa (AS) was sent to the people of Israel to make them worship Allah SWT. Allah (SWT) says that the story of Musa (AS) and Firaun in the Quran is the truth. It is a story of political conspiracy and of oppression that knew no bounds. In the Noble Qur’an, Allah SWT says:
“We recite to you some of the news of Musa and Firaun in truth, for a people who believe. Verily, Firaun exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (i.e. Children of Israel) among them; killing their sons and letting their females live. Verily, he was of those who committed great sins and crimes, oppressors, tyrants.”
Ustadh also shares with us tidbits that belong to Surah Taha where the dialogue between Musa AS and Firaun is discussed and elucidated upon. Elaborating on various Ayahs of the Qur’an via the stories shared with us, in one such instance – we are intrigued as to who Musa AS is getting to meet? Allah! This is a conversation that is of epic proportions in human history. A conversation between Allah and human being and the conversation was initiated by Allah and the human was called by his name directly! Musa! This part of the Ayah is exemplary with regard to the conversation Musa AS just had. If there’s one thing Musa AS is never going to forget, it’s this.
What does Allah say in this conversation? Allah says, even you! If you really want to remember me, establish Salah. Can you imagine the importance of Salah now with respect to remembering Allah! Next comes the secondary purpose which reminds us and reasserts the impending fact that the hour is coming. The Judgement day is coming.
Listen, they're all pretty much the same. At the end of the guy, the end of the story, the good guy wins.
You know, so it's not really much mystery to most stories. But it's the journey itself. Going through a story itself. That's what makes it interesting. And that's pretty cool because one of the words for story in the Arabic language is this song.
And this song from the Arabic verb, pasa actually means two things it means to cut. It also means to traverse when you're traveling, and you're following somebody else's footsteps, then it's also called pasta. Because the story is not about well, what happened, this is what happened. No, actually, let me tell you how it happened. Let me tell you what time of night it was. Let me tell you how scary it was. And the wind was blowing. And this was happening enough that you paint an entire picture, and you make people walk through a journey, right. So now the thing about this,
though, is it's a little confusing. A lot tells the story of Adam alayhis salaam, for example, seven times, seven times in the fire electrolysis about hussin, a ceramic over 70 places. It's one story, but it's spread out in over 70 places, Ibrahim, Ali some 20 some places. And each time we get a little bit of the story, then a little bit over there, then a little bit over there, and a little bit over there. And sometimes they're even repeated. And even when they repeat it, it's a little bit different every time like there's it's almost the same it kind of different. And it makes you wonder why not just take all of the pieces and put them in one place. You know, authors do that. Like for
example, books like a sauce on the Wii, or via these books, one of the scholars do, they take all of the ions, and they take all of the ideas, and they put them in one place here is the story of other monies. Here's the story.
Here's the story of who somebody is. The interesting thing, though, is a lot of himself does not do that. A lot did not do that electricals to break the story apart. Now what makes this even more interesting is that Elon makes a pretty strong claim in the Quran. When he says nothing. in a car accident causes, we are telling you the best of all possible stories. And which also means nobody will tell a story better than a level.
Nobody can tell a story than better than 100. So when the lead decided to break it up like this, this is somehow better than any other way of telling the story. And before I get into the story, because today, I'll just do one piece of one story. That's all I'm going to do tonight with you guys. This is just the introductory part. But before I get into that amazing story, I do want to share one more thing with you. When a lot of times it's the best of all possible stories. I'm personally reminded of an experience I had when I used to teach Sunday school. We're prisoners. I mean, students used to sit in front of the teacher. And the teacher walked in, especially in front
of the teenagers, you know, teenagers are the easiest people to entertain, and know. Right? And they're so easily impressed. No, they're not the teenage response to pretty much the most amazing thing is whenever
you know, because I
that's the attitude. So this was a teenager sitting there. And the teacher walked in and said, Today, I am going to tell you the best story ever.
And the students are sitting there like
Anybody want to guess what the best story ever is guys? And of course, chewing gum or, you know, looking at their phone or whatever, I can't believe I'm here. I wish you know something. And nobody's raising their hand finally one of the best story ever. And he goes wrecking ball.
The other one disagrees with him and says no, actually, I think the Assassin's Creed trilogy was way better. The storyline is epic. It's incredible. And there's a disagreement that broke out among the teenage kids about what is the best story, and each one of them had their own opinion on what the best possible story was. movies were mentioned. Video games were mentioned TV shows were mentioned cartoons were mentioned. The one thing that was not mentioned was any prizes. The teacher who asked that question, today, I'm going to tell you the best story, you know what it is? Is like what just happened here? No, no, guys. stopstopstop the best story of all is the story of use of Don't you
know? They're like, Oh, oh, yeah.
You know what that tells you? They're not convinced. They're like, if you say so. If you see so it's the best. I don't really think it's the best. I mean, it's, it's high. And then he starts telling the story and even the way he tells the story so much less than most of our Sunday school teachers across North America below reward them have a fantastic talent for releasing sleeping gas while they speak. So
you know, children are like, these kids are sitting there and this guy's telling the story and he's like you said honey salon, his brothers put them in a wheel and the kids sitting there like I don't mean
but the point is when we tell a story in a boring way, when we do that, we're actually doing a disservice to what is supposed to be something very exciting. Something very captivating. Something that should grab the attention. Of course, you might have guessed what story I'm going to talk to you about tonight. The story tonight is going to be not use of filings. Yeah, can every time somebody says story? And everybody thinks all I know, I know. Well, you know what, there are other stories. And today I'm not going to tell you the story of Mr. Owen. I'll tell you one of the seasons. I'll tell you some episodes from one of the seasons actually season three.
Yep, some of you know what seasons are Mashallah because they're fun. Okay, so let's review. Now listen.
Listen, the story of Busan, a Sam, he's the most mentioned prophet in the world on a lot of talks about him so much that I got so curious about that I even decided to make friends with a rabbi.
Honestly, honestly, I met a rabbi who came in, attended one of my speeches, and was talking about it, but he had a son, and he was sitting in the front row crying.
So Allah and I went after he came up to me afterwards, we talked, and I said, Listen, I wanna I want to hang out with you. I want to spend some time with you. This is a pretty, pretty decent scholar, and he studied Judaism for 1516 years of his life. And that's what I want to understand what you guys think about Moses, because Moses is such a big deal to us. And I need to know your perspective. I may not agree with your perspective, but I want to understand it. So we hang out sometimes we get together at restaurants and stuff. It sounds like a bad joke, like a rabbi and a Muslim get together at a kosher restaurant in Texas, like it's real, does actually happen. Anyhow, so the story I will
tell you is who, who, what season.
So there are actually seasons in the Milan season there was mentioned briefly in many places, but there are three actually forefront. I mentioned three of them. Three that talk about them in detail.
The first of those places, these are what I like to call it
talks about a lot in
season two, you find these sorts of
number 22. Number 26. That's season two,
begins when he was traveling, and he saw a fire and he told his family stay here I see a fire, I'll be back.
For season one. It focuses on that conversation he had with a law on top of the mountain.
So to show her actually focuses on another conversation, it starts in recap season one, briefly. But it pays way more attention to when he came down from the mountain and had a long debate
with that debate in this detail is captured in
that season two. Now since like three of you watch TV, you know, there's like the idea of a prequel.
You have something an epic story comes out, then Part Two comes out. And part three is how it all began. Before even one
Season Three is actually similar to us.
Number 28. And it begins with the birth of Musa alayhis salam. When he was a baby, how did he end up at a mountain anyway? What was going on before? Who is this man before he gets to the mountain? We don't learn about that anywhere else in that detail except in certain causes. That's the season I will be discussing with you today. And as I do, I'll share some parallels. I know. I mean, I say this jokingly but the reality of it is I grew up with cartoons and movies, many of you grew up with cartoons and movies. That's just the reality of our times. So everybody here knows who Batman is, if you don't want to admit to a cause, right, so everybody here knows who Superman is. And Batman is
and Spider Man and we know these stories we know. If you don't know Tom and Jerry is then you know, seriously, what kind of Muslim are you?
So you, we know these things? Fortunately, unfortunately, that's most people's reality. We are familiar with film. We're familiar with the entertainment industry. And there are some things that all of you are familiar with. There are some really creative writers created filmmakers nowadays, who begin a movie with the final scene.
The first scene of the movie is the last scene. It already tells you how it's going to end the guy's falling off the building and a voiceover you might be wondering how this happened.
Here's my story. And then the screen turns black and it says two hours ago and then the whole movie goes on right? So you're still sitting there like well I already know what happens guys gonna go splat.
You know, why do I need to sit there for two hours to find out he fell off a building you're still interested in what not the conclusion by the
The journey, it caught your interest How did it end this way? It's a very creative way of telling the story. Now, there's another special special kind of story. You know, they make genres like drama, and, you know, a thriller, and action and comedy. And a particular genre is adventure. There's a particular genre of storytelling called adventure. This is in literature. This is in film, it's been there for 1000s of years, right? And in an adventure, a lot of times, they will begin with a monologue. Long ago, there was the king. Usually, you have to have a British accent if you want to have a monologue in the beginning. Otherwise, it doesn't work. Right? So they'll have this monologue
in the beginning. And they'll basically walk you through what's gonna happen in this story. There was a king, he was very oppressive, he killed many people, but a hero shall rise among them,
you know, and etc, etc. And you're just, this is just the intro. There's just the intro. And in that intro, it actually summarizes the entire adventure, doesn't it? Like 30 seconds. And then when the intro closes, the screen turns black, and it says 30 years ago, and then the movie actually begins, you understand what I'm saying? You do, because you watch a lot of movies. Okay? Now, these are modern film techniques. But what I'm here to share with you today is actually these are not modern film techniques. A lot of these and more to perfection have already been used in the 1000s of years ago, centuries. And way better than any filmmaker overlook way better. I was teaching the same class
I remember in Minnesota, yeah, Minnesota. And about 16 1700 people were there in Minnesota at a convention center. And a few of them Muslims are film students. They're doing their bachelor's in their masters and film production. At the end of the story night programs, they came to me and said, we learned about 20 techniques of filmmaking, and moviemaking, we were cross checking which ones you are going to cover. And we went through all of them. And there were five more that we've never heard about.
or final that we never even seen, that you mentioned. And I was like I never studied film. I never studied film. This is just how I how I studied the story itself. So Panama. So it is something very, very powerful. So let's begin. This is the adventure of who
he is. And the sequence in which I will tell you the story is this sequence of Sudoku puzzles itself, although I have I have I, I will not choose to tell you my order of events, I'll let a lot tell the story. I will let them decide what comes next. What comes next, what comes next. The sooner I begin the spa see me a powerful introduction, bossy beam didn't come to Kitab it will be those are the miraculous signs of the clear, obvious book, the one that can't be can't be speech, it has to be a book. It's not written by it's not sent by the human being, you know, it's not going on. And the mccanns never saw written called on. Right, they only saw something that was recited. But the
introduction to the surah calls it a Kitab. Like listen to it. And you tell me if that sounds like somebody's speaking, or is that an authored work is that written because it's originally on is originally written in about food, so to carry on to kitabi will be that's why they come in never moves our our love and help the whole menu we know, we're telling you some of the accounts, from some of the news, some of the events of Messiah in Rome. And we're telling you some of those things been held for purpose, with truth and for purpose. Listen to two explanations have been harmed. The first of them is when somebody tells a story. Why do they tell the story, I tell the story to put my
kids to sleep, somebody else tells a story to make a lot of money at the movie theater. Authors tell the story to entertain, right? You want to entertain people you want to pass the time you tell the story. Unless as I tell a story for higher purpose. There's a bigger reason than just entertainment. What will that bigger reason? I'll tell you in a second. But the other meaning of behalf is accurately.
I will tell you the story accurately. Now what does this storyteller do to make a story more interesting, he adds a little bit of spice of a twist a little turn somebody dies. So when he can pick us back from the day, somebody does this, this is always a twist. They even do this nowadays in journalism to make the news story more interesting. Add a little salt here and some pepper there and you got yourself a story. Right? So I don't have to do that. Unless I don't have to fill the story with vague interesting details to keep you engaged. The actual events themselves are engaging enough.
But then he says me coming up to my favorite part of this ayah I will do this. I will tell you the story. Some things from the news of Busan film, I'll tell you tell you some things about them for a group of people that want to have a man
that wants to have faith. The purpose of this story is to build one
To build the mind that is a higher purpose, the story will entertain absolutely the story will excite the story will stick scared the story will make you laugh, the story will make you cry. But at the end of it all the story is supposed to build your emotion that isn't
enough and keep it really light because it gets loud
enough Allah Allah around had very high This is by the way the monologue is the beginning of the adventure. No doubt about it, the pharaoh
he had very high power in the land, you know, either they say in Arabic, I thought he mushy when you walk you walk.
When somebody stuck up a snob when they walk, and they're big, and they're intimidating, and you avoid eye contact with them, like the guy in high school, the big guy in high school in the football team, and the guy on the wrestling team, and he's walking down the hall and he switches his arms out extra little. And you're just a scrawny Indian kid who wants to be a programmer when he grows up, you know, so you go along the hallway like this, you know, and he makes eye contact with you. You go do my math homework, like
just so you understand what other means.
He was intimidating. He looked down on the people. Nobody can make eye contact with the guy. And you can imagine the scene if I had a camera back then you know what it would show it would show him looking over his balcony over has 1000s of soldiers. And everybody's looking down in humble submission to this king with Jada ha ha Shia and and he took the population of the land, and he broke them into political factions. Qian Qian means a group that is that is paranoid of another group.
He wanted to create a situation where the population of Egypt is broken up into groups, every group is only concerned with one, the other group that they're gonna attack us and the other group thinks they're gonna attack us and they're all hating on each other. And therefore the entire population is weak, because everybody's paranoid of everybody else. And when a population is weak, they cannot be united. And when they can't be united, the king can do whatever he wants, what an amazing strategy, take a bunch of people, break them up into groups, make sure each group hates the other group, they will stay so busy with that, that the ruling class can do whatever they want, and nobody will be
able to change it. I wonder if that would work for Muslims?
I don't know. Oh, no, probably not. Okay. So Jada?
Then he took one group among them among all of those weekend groups, and he made them particularly nice. He wanted to keep them particularly the these are the sons of Israel, it is the sons of this is why it is not a bad word, guys. It's like it is the name of a prophet, Joseph respect. Right? So we shouldn't use these words, in condescending terms, these are honored people. And that that nation itself was honored by Allah. They were honored by Allah Muslims are have such a mature understanding of our book, and our legacy that we speak about these things in such bad terms. And we don't understand what Allah is telling us in his book. So he took one group, who did you meet Nick,
especially with the sons of
the sons of Israel, Israelites, he made them especially weak. So we use those people.
He was slaughtered their baby boys, he was slaughtered their children. Now let's understand what that means. Why? Why would that happen? So you've got Egypt, you've got this powerful empire. Actually, it's so powerful that even to this day, government buildings all over the world, especially in the modern world, that they emulate. You don't see in government buildings and courthouses. You see giant columns. You see giant pillars, right? before you walk into lots of steps. And then giant pillars. You know what that's inspired by the pharaohs. The Greeks were inspired by the pharaohs architecture, and other nations after them to this day, Parliament houses
around the world, you know, courthouses around the world, they'll they'll emulate themselves over the pharaohs Empire. If you look at the dollar bill, for example, were sold, the United States is so impressed with the stability of the Egyptian Empire, that they actually have the pyramid on the dollar bill. There's a reason for that. This became a symbol of stable government. Now, this guy, the Pharaoh, they built their architecture along the river. This is all important. They built their architecture along the river because the river will be crossed by other nations. And when other nations see this massive architecture, they get intimidated.
But to build that massive architecture, unique construction workers, so they have the palace. Then a little bit further, you know, if you go downstream, a little bit or upstream a little bit better. There's the downtown. There's
The city itself. And further up the river is actually the ghettos. They built this ghetto community along the river. And they put a fence around it and actually put the military outside of it.
The founder had encampments. So this is your wife, the women, the girls, on the other side of the river, on this side of them are soldiers in their camps. So they can only leave their genitals if they go through the military checkpoint, you understand. They cannot escape from the other side, why not? what's on the other side of the river, they don't have the means to build a large enough boat to cross the river. And even if they do build a small boat, it's gonna go downstream. Now what's downstream, the perilous the Pentagon of the time, they can escape, they're stuck. Now, he kept these people as slaves, and he kept them in the slums for a long time. And when it comes to
you want Okay, that's fine.
So he wanted to keep them in these songs for a long time. And he's making them do work. The old man, the women, he doesn't care. He's there, beating them into do work, doing work all day and all night. All kinds of stuff right? Now you tell me. If you have if you have like, 10 No, no, like 15 1617 1819 year old young men,
young men, and they see their mother being kicked around their father being kicked around me to do work. Are they going to get hot blooded?
Are they going to want to fight back? Yep. And if there is enough young, angry people in Egypt,
might there be a revolution? Yep. We don't worry about that nowadays, right? So you can't have too many young men. It's too dangerous. So he wants to control the population of young men. He can kill all of them because he kills all the young men. What does he not have? He doesn't have his workforce anymore. So he comes up with and he sees nightmares that they will rise against him, the more of them will rise against them. It's a very logical nightmare Bible. very logical nightmare if you do that to people.
So he comes up with a policy where they're going to go into the ghettos every other year, find every meal boy and slaughter him in front of the family. If the family protests don't kill the entire family. Now, here's the thing. This is what it says you who have not, they will slaughter slaughter, not kill slaughter. They say the baby boys, it's easy to read, but not imagine.
That would mean beyond even a rated R movie.
You cannot show babies being killed. He can't show that it's too disturbing. And that's the story.
And now imagine in nature, a bunch of this in nature. Even if there's a line that goes after a baby calf, you'll find the bull trying to fight back even though the bull has no chance. a loved one in animal major, to protect the child. I'll put this inside of every human being to this is not even a Muslim thing. Every human being will protect their child. If they're in danger of getting hit by a car, they better get hit themselves and their child get hit. It's natural instinct. how weak do you make of people that you can walk into their homes and kill their boy and they don't react? And they can't react? You cannot imagine weaker people in this. It's unimaginable. This is your home? Well,
yes, that eating is our home, and he will allow their women to live. Why would he allow the women to live because he wants them to have more babies because he needs more workers. Look at the disgusting evil that Phil Hammond was in now Who can I mean, I will see the no doubt he was the those who caused a great deal of corruption. He caused a great deal of courage. This is the intro to the story still. This is the epilogue they're just opening opening scene when we reach
out, and we intend to empower those who were weakened in the land that alleges describe how weak these people were.
Can you imagine a law saying hello wants to favor them and empower them? Now? I'm thinking how is it we're going to favorite them? Maybe a little help them escape?
Maybe they'll get away from him somehow.
And then and even if they get away because these people have enough government power themselves to start their own government. They don't even have the power to protect their own household. How are they going to start the government says about them once you know whether
you want to make them leaders. He wanted to make him leaders. That sounds completely impossible given the scene he just made. He painted a scene where they can't even be their own household. And then he says he wanted to turn them into leavers. Why not?
And even more shocking, we wanted to make them inheritors. What's the English word related to inheritors
inheritance. When does somebody get inheritance?
when someone dies, a lot of the same to us, we're always going to die and they're going to take over. However the world is gonna die. You just said,
john, john, he has absolute power. Nobody can even make eye contact with him. These people are stuck in a ghetto, they get slaughtered their children get slaughtered every two years, how in the world? Is he going to die and then take over? I don't see it happening.
then on top of that, he says, and he wanted to give them stable power in the light. This drives me even more crazy. You know, what I'm assuming also political science, a lot of people don't know. And then political science is a phenomenon that if you have a group of people that don't have any experience with government,
if they don't have any experience with government, all of a sudden, they come into power, out of nowhere, somehow they got power, are they able to establish a stable government or an unstable government, you're telling me
because they have no experience, and no one is gonna know what they're doing. So even if they do get a government, it's going to be the kind of government that in no time what happens, it falls apart, and falls apart. It was nice about these people, not only did I want to favor them, not only that, I want to make them inherit the land and make them leaders who have been working out and I wanted to make them stable in the land. Each of these things from a political science perspective, from a news perspective, from a capitalist perspective are impossible. If you take some of the top people that are in the news media today that talk about political commentary, and you show them footage of the
Israelites and say, here's the plan.
Within the next 10 years, these people are going to have power a stable government completely free from the federal the federal disappear, what do you think?
What are all the pundits on TV gonna say? That's impossible, the stupidest thing I've ever heard actually, sometimes, you know,
this is a crazy, it can't happen. It's never happened before. This is the delusional people that think that right? Unless say, this is my plan with these people. This is the plan no expert will ever agree with. No analyst will ever come up with this plan.
And then the coolest part about this is the end of the introduction. We're nearly half an hour now What havanna? What do you mean home, Macedonia, and we want to show around, and we want to show how on, you know, harmonic, harmonic is is general. And I'd be wanting to show the army that both of them control. So you've got the king, you've got the Major General and the two of them control what the army and Allah says I didn't just want to get rid of him. I wanted to show him with his own eyes, and him and his general and his armies. I wanted them to see with their own eyes from those Israelites, the thing they were afraid of.
Now, what does this mean? It actually means that the pharaoh hound is afraid of the Israelites. oppressors. People who oppress innocent people are actually afraid of those innocent people. They're afraid. They're afraid that one day when these people wake up and stand up for themselves, they'll be done. as powerful as fitout is Allah tells us something that's hiding deep inside his heart, and something that's hiding deep inside his generals heart, and something that's hiding deep inside all of our soldiers hearts, they are afraid of the Israelites rising up one day. And he says I will show him the uprising with his own eyes. I won't let him die until he sees these people arrive.
So we know that it's not just gonna disappear by some special wires that only hits Egyptians.
He's gonna get to see the rise of the Israelites with his own eyes. How in the world is this going to happen? This was the introduction. And then the screen turns black and it says several years ago
and the curtain is lift. And is there an announcement for a license plate? I love making those announcements. You don't have
the spunk out of my I love tangents tend to the best. There was one time I was teaching this class this kid Mashallah you know, some of our children, they are amazing. They have amazing lungs,
one year old.
And he's all the way back way back here and he walks slowly, slow motion, like
any minute all the way to me. And then he stays a little guy like this.
So I picked him up and I said whose father of the year
another guy in the back he was still sleeping.
So I'm not bothered by that stuff. I'm just entertained by it. But this one.
By the way, if you have kids in the hall and they're making noise, a little bit
I don't mind if they're like crazy, psycho crazy. And you should know who they are. I mean, parents who have those kinds of kids, they get used to it so much, it's normal to them, they can have conversation while that's happening, and you don't even hear it, you hear, but everybody else is like, what's wrong with these people? Are they operating so normal? But if you have that kind of a child like one of those Mashallah children, then just just take a little walk and come back, okay? And then it's totally normal to you with the person next to you, their ears are bleeding and stuff. So, anyhow, what was I talking about?
Says the kingdom will fall, he will see with his own eyes, the demise of this empire, the Israelites shall rise, and I'm sitting there going, this is gonna be awesome. And then the story begins. And it begins with one
of the heat we reveal to the mother of Mussa feed the baby milk. And I'm like,
wait, wait, why
not lifestyle was the Empire she'll fall the next aisle is alone reveals to the mother feed the baby does not seem related. No, this is the coolness of storytelling, man, you're supposed to read it and go How in the world is a beat baby drinking milk going to bring down the Empire?
You're actually supposed to ask that question. I'll tell you. I will tell you. The order has been given kill all the wild.
baby boys. They're coming in from the one side of the military checkpoint. Is there any escape? No, they're going door to door to hundreds of 1000s of people. It's going to be a few hours the whole day, maybe before they get to every house. Then there's this one house where there's a lady. She's got a few kids. One of them is a newborn. His name is Louisa. Actually, we don't know his name yet. But she's got this. She's got this kid. And he's Marcia alive, extremely loud and crying. He's one of those babies. So she's got this child and he's screaming his head off. And the soldiers are getting closer. Now if they hear the sound of a baby, what are they gonna do? They're gonna bust
into the house and kill the kid in front of the mother and throw his corpse in the river in front of her. They will do this because they are ruthless animals. Well, she is terrified of the idea of her baby being killed. So she tries to put him to sleep.
And it's not working. She has no burger, but it's not working. She's telling you when he's not working. She knows what I do with my kids when they're crying.
is not working. None of it's working. How do you get this child to stop? She doesn't know. And every second that goes by who's getting closer. The soldiers are getting closer they're gonna kill this kid, then allow reveals to the mother something that she could never have thought of herself. Allah says this might be a good time for a snack. What do you think?
Well, okay, now,
he revealed to the mother who's happy the baby cheapies, the baby and the baby What?
stops crying, which means the soldiers outside hear nothing and they walk right by, if she doesn't feed the baby, then he doesn't stop crying. And if he doesn't stop crying, the baby's not saved and the Empire doesn't fall.
It is related.
It is related. Now, which mother would think my child might just be killed? there might be people that are breaking into my house any second, this might be a good time to feed my baby some milk
isn't even gonna crawl across your mind? No, this has to be from a lot. What we are learning from the very beginning of the school. Oh, by the way, one of the reasons I picked this one is because I have four daughters. One of the reasons because this salon is filled with special women that are nonprofits. But we're learning that when it comes to people who are connected to a law that believe in Allah and have a relationship of the hour the law, Allah will put things in their heart in emergency situations in bad situations, and they will know just what to do. Allah will reveal to the believer the right thing to do. There's no way this woman could have figured that out herself that
oh, I had to intervene. And he told her feed the child. Fair enough.
And if you're still afraid for the baby now, by the way the soldiers went by, but are they Is it possible they might find the baby next week? Two weeks from now, even six months from now? Aren't they going to notice what the kids are supposed to be killed?
There's the fear remain. It remains even though for immediate purposes. You say? Allah says if you're really afraid for him, for me, he fell young me throw him in the river.
He's telling a mother to throw her baby into the river. How many moms in the audience? Mom's in the audience. Okay, good. Moms. I've noticed something about you people
through my own experience.
With my mother and my wife with my children, there are three things that don't go together normally. Mother baby and water.
They don't go together.
If you guys ever go to the lake with your family, and the father grabs the baby and says, Okay, let's go play in the water, and he goes a little bit deeper as the mother do.
My baby without water
can do it. Our women, they give our baby showers. They take them to the tub. The kids excited he got his rubber ducky, he's got his cars he's got a good things are gonna float around in the water. And she's so terrified of the tub. She fills it to about yay high. And the kids said they're like, come on.
Even my rubber ducky can swim in. This is
Mothers babies and what doesn't mix. Or it doesn't make a lot of towels. This woman if you're really scared for your child, here's a great idea. Take your child and throw him not put him gently TV throw him in the river. And by the way, if you're wondering how do you throw a baby in the river? What is that? Well actually season one answer that question. Oh, who remembers what season one was?
Haha. was actually a chest a box. You know what a box where you put vegetables in it or something? Right? That box? You put them in that box and put the box in the prayer? Well, that's a lot safer.
Because you know, vegetable boxes are thoroughly tested for extreme watersports.
And they're, they're guaranteed to not flow or flip over or leak. You know, and not drill. I mean, there's no they're not. They're not hasn't been how many test runs been done with this basket before? No. Let me stop you for a second, I want to tell you a little story about the greatest movie ever made.
Kung Fu Panda.
Let me tell you something.
So who's the villain?
Think I'm very good, Mashallah. Afterwards,
we'll do it together. There's a peacock, peacock sees a dream.
peacocks is a dream that a creature of black and white will destroy his kingdom.
And he orders all the pendants to be killed.
The wolves go out and go after every panda. And there's a scared mother. She takes her baby panda. And she puts them in a basket. And then she puts the basket in the river.
Yep. If you watch the rolling credits at the end, the basket is floating in a river. And that's how it ends up in the place that sells noodles and learns to get out of that. Wait a second. Does that sound familiar?
Who Where did they get this amazingly creative idea that some or King sees a dream that the Empire shall fall so all of them should be killed. So a mother saves her child? This is completely unheard of right?
This really original story? No, it's not. And they don't say at the end of the movie Special thanks to Moses, and
they just feel the parts. These stories are so powerful, you'll find billions of dollars being made off of them even today. Even today,
when I was younger, some of you are not that old. So you don't know. Lion King.
Right, Lion King? And those of you that know that. Okay, good. make extra donations to the mushroom today. So the thing about Lion King is this this little cub, Simba accidentally killed his dad. And he was given advice. What was the advice given to him? Run, never return. Get far away from here. Get out of here. Today, someone accidentally killed someone and guess what?
Get away from here never come back. And when he when he goes away, suppose when he grows up somewhere else. Finally he gets hit with a what on the head if anybody remembers, oh my god. So he gives it to the staff. And then he sees a vision. And the vision says go back and claim the kingdom.
They steal directly from the legacies of the province without even telling us and we don't even pay attention. We think a lot of awesome story my alma mater made me cry.
You know, honestly, it's all around us. All the time. bits and pieces are stolen from the prophetic legacies all the time in entertainment in modern America without giving any credit so powerful. And you know, coming back to the narrative, one of our soldiers says this may be supposed to be fed, if you're really afraid for him, what do you do for revenue? And once you put him in the river, why is it easy for a mom to do or no? is a mother emotionally capable of doing that on
No, no, she will have to be given emotional strength that she does not possess. What will that come from? It will come from a lot. It is not something she has no therapy will give it to her no pill can give it to her no counseling, any of that can only come from alone. What are we learning? You and I have emotional problems mothers, fathers, women, men, husbands wives, we have emotional issues. A lot of will make us emotionally capable to do things that we ourselves are not capable of humanly impossible for us. But if we really have a mind and a lot of what gives us the emotional strength
without the Harpy, then he tells her something even more impossible. He tells her Don't be afraid. What after happy.
Don't even read. First of all, when you throw him in the river and the basket goes like that. Don't be afraid. When you see gators go by. crocs go five. Don't be afraid. When the when the water takes too because the river moves right. So the baskets not gonna stay there. It's gonna walk. It's gonna move. Don't be afraid. And when the basket goes so far, you can't even see it anymore. And you start thinking What have I done? Don't be sad.
Don't be sad. Now you take this woman By the way, what does that tell her? How is she not going to be afraid how she's not going to be alone tells her something. He says he will bring him back to you guarantee.
We will bring him back to you guaranteed. What
will make him from those who get delivered? There are two interpretations of that will make him a messenger and will make him from those who get delivered a long line. I'm inclined more towards the earlier meaning we will make sure he gets delivered. Now where does he get delivered?
That I was cancelled. He doesn't tell her that? Because he just calmed her down.
You tell him Don't worry about it. I'll take care of him. Make sure he gets COVID ons castle.
That doesn't work. So he'll just get delivered. Don't you worry about I'll get him back to you. You don't worry about it. I'll get him back to you. Now imagine this woman goes to her neighbor's house.
And member says
Well, I was afraid for him.
So I threw him in the river.
But I mean, I have a feeling from ally shouldn't be afraid. I shouldn't worry. He's gonna come back to me. What does the neighbor gonna think?
was poor woman had to do such a horrible thing? She's lost her mind. She's developed some kind of alternative reality. She's become schizophrenic. She's become she's she's developed hyper mania. She's delusional. She's hallucinating. She's created alternative reality. She's not herself anymore. The traumatic experience has driven her insane. What are what am I trying to tell you? The level of trust we have in a love. Or at least we're supposed to have enough. For anyone who doesn't believe in a lie. You know what it looks like?
It looks like insanity. I'm not talking about the workout program.
That's insane. I could never do that. Yeah, I know. We're believers. That's what makes us believers. What's
so hard Allah, what an incredible narrative of this journey of this mother and what she had to go through to be able to put her child to the river. Now the camera, the camera is on the basket.
And is it going to camera steamed in the in the ghettos in the slums? Or is it going to move? It's going to move along the river. And where is the basket headed?
Towards the palace. Now the problem with the palace is the palace is the place where this command was issued to kill all the babies. And it's heading towards the place that issued that order. So if there's one place that is the most dangerous for this child, it is where the metal is. And it's headed that way. Unless it's been
around, the people have been around, got ahold of him just stumbled upon him. What is this? They pick it up? The Queen happens to be in the balcony and says bring down here What is that? They pick it up and they open the basket and there's a baby inside. Now the baby has a lighter skin tone a smaller skin tone. The Israelites had a weak skin tone. The Egyptians were darker colored. Not nowadays. This is old times. Right? The Egyptian were darker colors. So you could tell immediately when you look at a baby. It ain't one of ours is one of those that's supposed to be killed immediately. There's no mystery. There's no mystery. And she grabs a hold of his baby. And the
soldiers are like oh snap.
Because you know what? If the king finds out that a baby was able to breach, cap castle security and make it to the most, most secure building in the country, through all of the defenses of the nation, and reach the queen, the First Lady. A baby could break all of the security who's in trouble.
Soldiers are in trouble. So soldiers want to see this baby dead. They don't want this baby to be alive. The King doesn't know yet but they
Don't want this baby. They're about to kill them who intervened.
The Queen intervene, she took him. She took him. But from that first day that he landed in that castle, he had enemies. Who are the enemies? The soldiers who are reminded of their incompetence, who are reminded of their failure to secure the building, who are told go all the way to the ghettos and kill all the babies. Oh, and you people couldn't not only did you not kill a baby, this baby infiltrated Splinter Cell style, all the way into
the palace. How in the world?
I have no shame.
So now from the first day, he has enemies and Who are they? Who are they soldiers?
LEAH Gunilla home
so he could be an enemy to them from the first day and a source of grief. Now this part is my favorite. One of my favorites. There's so many favorites, he can be a source of grief for them, then this kid is from the slave race right? On top of that he's one of the kids that's supposed to be killed. On top of that. They are the rulers and they are just the people that look like him are the servants. But since he's gonna be raised as a prince, I'll tell you how that happens later. So when he walks by what are the soldiers supposed to do?
They're supposed to salute him. How are you, sir? Welcome. They're all supposed to hold the door open for him. That's what you do with loyalty. Right? Now this soldier is from the Egyptian race. And the guy from the slave race, I have to hold the door open for him.
I have to let him in. And I have to close the door and I have to give them a glass of water. Are they reminded of their anger every time they serve Him. Every time they see him walk by the halls, and they can't touch him. Every time they have to hold the door open for a home man is juicy. As juicy. And by the way, when people look at you with hateful eyes, and they're forced to serve you can you tell when you go to a restaurant and hates Muslims? Can you tell? Oh, it's juicy. I order extra from those restaurants.
I go to the restaurant and hungry now.
What am I going to order today? That's what I do.
So in what hamana
hamana and their armies were making a huge mistake. Now the soldiers are worried that this kid King is going to find out. So they go to the cleaners. Hey, ma'am. Excuse me, we need that baby.
She goes step off when you're talking to the queen, man kings orders? Oh, yeah. Let me go talk to the king myself.
So this woman, by the way, more women welcoming the Kings court, even if they're from the king's family know, the king's court was for men to do the affairs of men and women were supposed to be just decorative. They were kept the queen is just a decorative item. She's not supposed to meddle in the political affairs and undermine the authority of the king in front of her generals you can get in real trouble for that. And we also learned that she's terrified of her husband. She's absolutely terrified, petrified of her husband, but because of this baby, she walks into the court. And this is one of those years when you know political orders are being given. And reports are being delivered
about how the executions are going. Right. So there's a you know, the inside that Oval Office some busy work is happening. She walks in with the baby well,
and the wife a friend on sent directly to him or her to Island D he calls why this baby this baby is so cute. He gets rid of all my sadness. I look at him and I feel happy and you know, I need a reason to be happy. I'm married to you. Right? So
and then she does even I've given a talk about coolness of the eyes as even the Indonesian fellow that made an animated thing out of it. Right. So have you seen that? So I won't talk about that. I'll tell you one more thing that I didn't say in that talk.
Colon means to stay to stay somewhere like vagina. We cannot imagine what the meaning of that is. Also, when I look at the baby, I can't take my eyes off.
is so beautiful. I can't take my eyes off. Now when she talking to
around, she turns the baby around, puts him in the face and says one lakh you look at him Can you take your eyes off?
And he looks at the baby and even he
can't take his eyes off
Even now you will know if it is a baby killer right? ruthless, merciless. How about his like harder than
rockhard becomes soft by looking at what would be so what's so different? The answer to that is in season one again, what does that
mean? I cast upon you a special love that comes only from me. So when people will look at you, and even the most beautiful people, the ones I want, and when they look at you, even they will be filled with love.
Now, when somebody looks at someone with hate, you can tell, and when someone's emotions change, you can also tell
you can tell sisters pay attention. This is how you
intelligently get your husband to do things for you.
I'm not saying your husband's around, please don't get the wrong idea. And don't raise your hand like I haven't been
scammed out. Okay.
she put the baby in his face. He looked at him he didn't respond. Does his facial expressions change? You think
they did? This is a kind of maybe that's supposed to be killed, right? So first, she's had a look at how cute he is. She didn't say don't kill him first. He said, Look how cute he is. Can you take your eyes off him? Look at him. And his face changes. Now the wife notices the husband's face change.
So she says this is the right time to as she says not to do Don't kill him.
His speed? He's the last in the babies like Uh huh.
And then she's like, maybe I should ask some more. When the face is right, is it time to ask some more? So she says
maybe it could be good for us. And he's still like, Uh huh. We still lost in the baby.
And she goes, Okay, well.
Maybe we can take him as our own child. Maybe you could be our newborn baby.
Not even listening. Where's the last one? He wasn't the baby. She got into a heart everything. Because he was in a good mood. Sisters, you want your husband to do something.
Just get the AHA face first.
agree to anything. Now his face may come as a result of one of your kids. Maybe because of some something he eats Just one bite at a time, then you asked him for whatever you want.
What we do typically, we don't use that intelligence. Right. So husband's in a bad mood. He just got he got stuck in traffic. Somebody cut him off, showed him the finger. And for a moment, he thought he's taking Shahada, then he realized
he realized this is something else. These are really bad.
And this has been this husband when he comes in the house, he's in a bad mood. And when husbands are in a bad mood, where does this frustration go?
To places either the wife or the machine board meeting? Those are the only two places? There's no third place for us? I don't know. I don't know. I don't want to know. I don't know. One. There's a few things that
she sees in a bad mood. And then she says, Hey, I want to go to my friend's house. I want you to take us to dinner, I want you to
And I hate your mother.
Not gonna do that. It's not gonna work.
You have to get into smile first. You don't just walk up to fit our own and say, Hey, don't kill this baby. I want to keep him it's not gonna work. You have to soften him up first. And then you can even get good answers on your own. So your husband's not that hard.
To change his mind is not that impossible. You just have to use emotional intelligence. This is the second special woman we're meeting. She knows how to know how to negotiate without using debate without using words uses emotional intelligence. Right? Women have to this is true from women and men, but in this particular case, women have to learn to understand the emotional states when they're asking for something. This is our intelligent, we're learning just powerful intelligence from her. Hey, what's up?
Okay, so I have 15 minutes. Okay, excellent.
So she convinces him that we can keep the baby huh.
I'll show you one of the one of the great, incredible features of the bond. You know the word musah. The Jews believe that the word Messiah is Hebrew.
The Hebrew term that's why they call it Torah, the Torah, Mousavi Salah.
I am personally convinced a long island that the word Messiah is not Hebrew. That is Egyptian.
The reason for that is this child was taken to the castle with the name Tiger without a name tag without a name tag and under whose authorities you know
and the pharaohs authority
Who will have the right to name him? And will they raise him as a slave or as a prince? If they're going to raise him as a prince? Does it make sense that they name him in the slave language or the master language? It just completely makes sense that they need him in the master language. So chances more likely that his name is actually Egyptian, not Hebrew. Now Moshe in Hebrew actually means something in the water.
And they, you know, like mood is like not in Arabic and she is like shape. That's what they put the two together for something in the water. So they say because he was put in the water. He's called Moosa, but actually, actually, moussaka very well not mean any of that it could just be an entirely the problem with that is the Egyptian language died 1000s of years ago. Nobody knows what the Egyptian language means. At the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it was already dead for about two and a half, 1000 years, 3000 years. There is no way anybody in the Arab world would know what the word Moosa means and what language and Egyptian, except in the late 1800s, the French
started reviving the Egyptian language, hieroglyphics, they started decrypting them figured out a way to pronounce the syllables, they came up with an entire transmission mechanism. The Austrians got involved, the French got involved in the entire the science of Egyptology. And through it now they know how to translate names. This is a recent phenomenon. This was not accessible to some alumni names, or though this was not accepted accessible even to the Jews. Nobody happens. Now they know that the word musei from Egyptian actually means newborn baby
actually means newborn. The wife of the pharaoh comes to him and says
what are the what are the literal mean Arabic means newborn baby, she must have said 1000s of years ago, maybe we could keep him as a Muslim.
And ally says we can keep him as he wasn't translating his name perfectly. The Quran translates languages that were dead for 1000s of years. Since
then, nobody had access to
that even just now we're starting to learn. And a lot of those have translated.
And they had no idea. They have no idea. Now the baby safe.
The camera is weird. What is the camera in the castle with this new woman who was very sad before and now she's happy because she has a baby. The camera takes us back to the hut, the slum and we're losing the slum.
The mother she happy? No, she's waiting for the child to be returned to her. Even though a lot has promised that he'll come back. Is there a sadness when you're separated from your child? Yeah. Is it is this is the is the fear overwhelming or slowly? It's coming on? Hmm. So let's have our own Mousavi Mousavi mother's heart was emptied of emotion. It was becoming emptied out she was becoming emotionally paralyzed. Please try to understand, because this is one of the most powerful lessons of the entire school.
People will go through traumatic experiences in life, what traumatic experience did this woman go through loss of child in a very disturbing way. And when people go through traumatic experiences, they can become emotionally paralyzed. The expression of that in the Arabic languages are spoken to
the person's heart became empty, meaning you're emotionally paralyzed. Imagine somebody hears some really bad news. And their eyes are stunned. And they refuse to speak and eat and drink. And you do this and they don't even blink. They're just lost. They're lost. They're so stunned by the terrible news that they got. That's what that means. This is the state of their mothers in the midst of his mother's name. Lola, Allah says in Canada, she almost almost gave her secret out. She almost ran out of the house saying my baby, my baby, my baby. But if she did that, what would have happened
would have been killed? Nobody
told me how have we not tied her heart together? Have we not kept our heart intact? A lie saying you will be emotionally completely gone and alone will come and emotionally heal you and keep your heart together and keep it from falling apart.
And Allah calms her down. The I began with describing her heart, which means an overwhelmed heart. And then by the middle of the aisle that
you know, communicating an idea that the typical word he calmed her heart down so she could be relaxed again. Why would she need to be relaxed again? This is the other critical lesson that I hope to finish before the salaat
Why don't you need to calm down Lita Guna Milan movie name so she could be from those who truly believe what guarantees Allah given
You remind me, what guarantee does she have from a lot? He will come back. Does that mean she has to do nothing? I can just sit here. I wonder if he will come back by FedEx or UPS? You know? How I wonder how he's gonna come back? Is it express mail? Well, how's it gonna come back? No, no, no, no, no, no, you and I may go out to Allah, Allah promises us results. But if you don't put any effort in, you have no right to expect anything from above.
The need the principle of the law is you ask a lot and you at least try something.
Then you become really have a lot of health. results don't come because we try harder. Results become because Allah helps. But Allah never helps. Unless, unless you try hard. Now there are some people who say you only have to ask them why you don't have to try. There are some people who say who needs to ask Allah you only have to try you try to get it done. And then the reality of it is you try hard, and then ask a lot and that's when you're qualified to actually deserve a lot of help. That's how it works. Now this woman is in the house, she can't do anything. How is she going to do she can go out and say that's my baby.
Musa has an older sister. She's in the house too. He must be 1011 years old. How many mothers of 910 11 year old girls here 910 1112
are all going to be parents of teenagers.
Okay, teenage girls.
Hey, let me tell you something about little girls. A 910 1112 year old girls. When you ask girls to do something, they do it right away. Right? Especially in North America.
Right away split second. Dinner's ready. Come downstairs. Yes, mother.
Ready to table? Actually no, dinner's ready.
I will serve dinner.
Am I still upstairs?
And then she comes down like 40 minutes later, Mom, where's dinner?
You didn't hear me call you
always get mad at me.
Oh, yeah. Go back upstairs. And then you're downstairs and you're like, Hey, I was thinking to get out of my new shoes for me. And say it in a low voice. She will be upstairs
in the bathroom. And she'll say mom blue blue shoes.
When whatever needs to hear.
She will hear when you say do your homework. She can't hear you. Did you do your homework? No response. No response. No response. How can your friends hear?
immediate we have a hard time communicating with our kids. They don't respond right away. They don't respond. And even if you want to make them do something, hey, okay. So something that I'm talking about was really depressed. So Zeno. Zeno started out, they know, pick up the garbage.
Oh, I did it last time. We have to
go right now. generally only five minutes. Five minutes. Five minutes. isn't what you get?
Why did she go whoa.
Now what happens is this baby is floating away in the river. This 10 year old girl is sitting here. The mother turns to her and says what caught the goofy. She said to her. Her sister, his sister. She said follow him. Follow him. Now this girl doesn't turn around to the mother and says mom should never my blue shoes or my red shoes mentioned
my job one. You'll need to go this way or that way. I mean, are you really saying follow him because he's in the river.
The river Would you rather say standing next to the river the correct grammar.
You hear nothing from
the mother actually said something in desperation that isn't even accurate. She said follow him step by step. That's impossible. Why
isn't the river and the girl could be like mom, actually, I think you mean follow him along the banks of the river? No, no, the girl's quiet. She doesn't respond. You know what that means? She acted right away. Girls you listening in on girls are supposed to act right away. You're listening girls. I don't think you're listening. Let me say it again. Girls. If your mother asked you to do something, she shouldn't have to say it twice in listening. I don't know. I don't know.
So now she tells him to go and what does she do?
Look at his really smart girl. Did the mother say keep an eye on him and don't talk to anybody else.
And make sure you keep an eye on him and make sure it goes as far as you can. Don't tell anybody what you're up to don't say that's my brother over there. Look it up cutie Luxe. Look at that basket, can you help me with that she didn't explain anything, the mother just had one phrase We'll see. Follow him. You know what that tells you, though, it's time to pick on the mother's mother, stop telling your children 55,000 instructions, tell them to give give them one instruction and let them figure it out. Let them make mistakes, it's okay. And that's how they will learn to work independently, when you try to control everything from the color of their socks, to the kind of
pencil to how they're holding their notebook, to how their job looks to what shirt they were to this or that or the other. When you try to control everything, they will stop listening. They will just stop listening. My mom just oh my god,
I can't do anything, right. Give them a little bit of space. And this you have to teach independent decision making. So she says he has so much confidence in her daughter. One word is enough. He didn't say go keep an eye on him go over here. They have a relationship where they can speak briefly to each other and both understand each other. You know what I mean? The kid goes, she goes outside. And it was his philosophy must be he she kept an eye on him. Did the mother say keep an eye on you know, and you know, baby from the side of the river. And also means she didn't make direct eye contact with the mascot. She's looking this way and kind of on the side of her I kind of
clandestine, you know, activity. She's kind of spying on the child without letting anybody know she was looking at the basket. So Pamela? Well, one last room that nobody realized what she's doing. That's a smart girl right there. How did she learn to do all of that? Well, she was raised the right way. She was raised to do things outside the house even to take care of tasks in a way that she can carry herself properly. And she was raised in a non Muslim society, by the way, and she knows how to handle herself outside. What have we done with our children, we want to protect them so much. They don't know how to deal with the outside world at all.
We have to give them a little bit of I'm not saying let your kids go on their own outside. I'm not saying that that was an emergency situation. But when you do go outside, make your give your kids responsibility. Have them take things, have them take the bananas, have them take the oranges and say don't say not this one that will not this one, they'll just relax. Take them Ludovic, it's okay. Let him make those mistakes. That's how they learn. That's how they learn. We have to do that with our children. I know there's two minutes left. So I have to leave you with a joke. If you don't laugh. I'm not continuing the program. Okay. This is my personal observation about parenting in the
West. I'd like to stereotype.
Unfortunately, it's a thing.
I've come across the can. I'm convinced that there are three kinds of parents.
They see parents, Arab parents, and all American parents.
All three of them three mothers are sitting in the playground.
And their kids are the playground.
This kid goes up the slide. The mother jumps out of the bench grabs the child before he can go to the top of the slide didn't even have a jump up jump.
Don't go up to 90 minutes.
This is why your child will never be in sports and will probably grow up to be an accountant or a programmer.
Thank you, mother. Okay. second child is an arrow child. Every child is two and a half years old. And this is a 10 year old kid slide. He goes up all the way in while they're sitting on the bench eating some ice cream. Mother continues to eat ice cream. He goes all the way to the top and he's standing there enjoying the view and he's putting one leg in the air and mother guess what continues to eat ice cream. Kid jumps off the top doesn't fly down, jumps down. crashes onto the ground. Mother Guess what? continues to eat ice cream. kid gets up and goes.
That was more fun than the slide. I'm gonna do that again.
That's the era of child.
Tough kids, man tough kids. Then of course there's the what what kind of mom? The old American monster Little Timmy goes up the stairs.
And Little Timmy goes up the stairs and he trips and he falls down. And the mothers of course reading the Wall Street Journal.
You know so the kid falls down and he's sitting there crying holding his knee
and the mom walks over slowly Timmy. Yes, brother. Did that hurt.
You want to talk about it.
that's what I'm leaving you with for now. Now, just in case, there's some really cool stuff left in this arena, we got pejoratives.
Right? I just want to give you an encouragement. One of the coolest things that's left in the story is the only the only story about a guy and a girl get married and
like the how to get married through the Quran story is coming up. One guy just woke up.
Let's make some good solid medical money whether
to go in the wrong program.
Something excellent. That's really fantastic. Somebody remind me.
The girl was told follow him. She kept an eye on him for the cyber glance. I didn't let anybody know
that she was following him following him along, okay. Now, she can only follow him so far. And so she reaches
the castle. When she gets to the castle, she can't obviously walk in and say By the way,
you can't do that. She has to stay outside. So when she reaches the basket, the castle he doesn't decide, oh, well, I tried. See a row, and then she has back home. No, she stays outside. She stays outside the castle says let's just see what happens in our mother tell her to stay there. Or did you figure that out when you're home?
Now the camera has brought us back We're apparently
back to the castle. So the next time it takes us inside the castle. What?
We had made the milk of other women huddled on him a little bit before.
What that means is just a little while before that I was instructed not to drink anybody else's milk. What in the world does that mean? When the story began? What was the first thing you heard?
feed the baby milk. So babies the babies and newborns can't speak it doesn't have the decisions and you know, disciples cannot know. But when he had heard his mother's milk, about what's in that little tiny heart of his This is the only note for you. Everything else you will know everything else you will not accept. no water, no nothing else. The baby ends up after a little bit of a trip into the castle the Queen has it's been an hour after an hour what happens to a baby and gets hungry again. Maybe
for dinner, the
baby starts crying and she tries to be the water and drink. And she says Are there any any any women here that are feeding their babies? Let's see if
he wakes up anybody else's milk. So she sends all the women and she's getting desperate because obviously if you don't eat a baby quickly, you can starve. You can feed the baby unfed forever, you know, little babies have very quick appetites.
So she gets desperate. And she sends all these women
out of the castle running finally pregnant women anywhere you can get them in here and see if we can feed the baby. So who's outside the castle?
sisters, sisters outside playing tic tac toe and all that standing out there pretending to just hang out. And these women start rushing out of the castle. desperate. And so she says
she just said to them is so smart. And this girl I'm such I'm so impressed with this girl
says she says to them, can I possibly give you some direction?
Some house? They're pretty good. They might be able to take care of him for you and do they're really good with babies they will live with
you talking about for all that? She does not say Hey, can I tell you that my brother? Mother. She didn't do that he doesn't
know grammar. Somehow. I think I know directions do it. If I take you there there might be
a pretty good with kids. They'll be really good for him. And they're not just good babysitters. They're really sincere good people. I think they're worthy of hiring. And she
was a leftover here.
I think that's the one
She didn't she didn't give up her secret. Very intelligent.
You know, so what we're learning is girls, we really know sometimes in a culture that undermines the intelligence of girls, right? And we think for example, it's an it's a mature and unfair, assertive assertion that Islamic history is full of male scholars. Right. One of my favorite scholars in the world today is
from Oxford University, I had the honor of meeting him. When I was in London, I traveled to Oxford and I met him at his house, because the incredible scholar and just to think that the the world's scholars that he has on speed dial is one of the greatest what has been alive today. He would have 50 volume book number 50 chapter book guys, a 50 volume book on animal had the half female heaviest collectors in Islamic history, over 3000 of them their lives, who their students were with their teachers were. And these are some of the most influential women in Islamic history. Why is that he felt it was important to highlight why because we're living in a time now where we've forgotten our
own history. We feel like Islamic education, knowledge, intelligence, etc. When it comes to seriousness about religion, it is a matter of the male scholarship and male leadership actually was shared all along. There's a reason that, you know, the greatest collection of ideas comes from Omaha zucchini. There's a reason for that. Right? This is not a legacy, one of the teachers of Ohio was a female, you know, and we, he's our teacher and look at his teacher, you know, so we undermine sometimes the value of the intelligence of girls, and I highlight this for another reason, we are living in strange times where Islam is being constantly attacked. And one of the things that's being
attacked is Islam doesn't dignify women. As long as I respect women, Islam undermines the role of women, Islam pushes women to the background, etc, etc, etc. And a lot of our girls are starting to believe it. A lot of our girls are like, yeah, I'm just a girl, what can I do?
Look at how the hero of the story who saves the life of Mossad is
who is actually responsible for reuniting Lucia with his family and fulfilling his promise, the promise was from a loss, I will reunite you with your child, but who made it happen? This little girl, and she wouldn't admit it happened if she wasn't smart. Don't underestimate the intelligence of these girls. You know, and there's a there's another thing they say a lot of times, you know, because I teach a lot of Arabic. And I, you know, obviously two sides, brother side, sister side for three years now, every time the average is always higher score on which side Take a guess. Sister side. And when I tell the guys you know, guys, come on you, you make me look bad.
You know, what can our team win once? Can you do it once? And they say, well, they're just book smart.
They're not street smart like us.
Talking about this girl who went out and engaged in this conversation and named this book smarter speed smart street smart, y'all.
Aunty Got that?
you know, but it also means that we have to make our girls ready to deal with an outside society that may be hostile. You know, and we'll learn about that more in the selection. A little later. So hey, so she brings in the back. Allah says follow depth now you know me, so we brought him back to his mother case.
So her eyes can become cool. And she wouldn't have to take her eyes off of her baby again. And she would never have to be sad again. When she was putting her baby in the water that it seemed like a good idea that anybody else know that anybody could have anybody have imagined that they will be reunited? No, when she sent her daughter outside the house, follow Him was not a guaranteed way of getting the child back. Absolutely not. There is nobody that could argue that that's the guaranteed way of getting your child back. You just do whatever you can leave the rest to Allah azza wa jal whether it makes sense in your head or not. You just have to do what you can. We're learning in this
in this surah in this story, especially the way Allah describes
some very, very powerful lessons. We do not believe what the experts say what the analysts say what the statistics say what the past says. We believe what a law says. And when a large change your personal life and the state of this woman when he decides to
go home. When he decides that people completely powerless and pathetic will rise. They will rise. It will happen when he decides the baby that has gone down the river will come back to his mother it will come back to his mother.
When he decides a little girl will rescue a child from inside a castle that's impossible dependent trait it will happen.
He will decide that it will happen. None of that is up to us. None of this can be planned. And you also learn from this that sometimes I have a plan. I have I have a plan for my parents. I have a plan for my children. I have a
plan for my education for my job. I have a financial plan. I have a health plan. I have all these plans for myself, right? And sometimes things go according to plan. But sometimes what happens? Things don't go according to plan. Do you think the mother plan one day to put her child in the river? Do you think that was part of the plan? No. You know, do you think it was planned that this will happen? But sometimes our plans go against us plans? A lot have something else in mind. And you know what, when that happens, we get frustrated. How come things didn't go according to our plan? My plan? What is this new plan? I don't get it. I'm not happy with this plan. Why did I lose my job?
Why did I Why don't have enough money to continue my schooling? Why do I have Why did this happen? What Why did I get sick? Why did I miss that flight? You know, what, you know, and sometimes it's out of your hands. And you know what, that those are the times to remind yourself and you remind myself, that is a loss plan. Let me tell you something that happened in my family three days ago, three years ago, my wife takes I take two of the girls to school, and she takes the other kids, they go to another school. And so she's got four kids in the van, and she's taking them to school. Halfway through, it's a half hour drive, 15 minutes into the drive. And mom says I forgot my book
bag at home.
Mother's happier and
she's at 730 in the morning, rush hour traffic, she has to go back, grab the bag, then come back, same highway again. And she goes by the exact spot when he sent over. There's a major accident 12 cars, fire trucks everywhere, ambulances, and she says to Panama.
that was part of the plan.
We're not going to give you credit, by the way.
What I'm saying sometimes alleges has his way of doing things, or what has his way of doing things. So you can't question you just have to go in and say something so
you can see it.
As a lovely way of teaching, you know, there are there are so many incidents like that in our lives. And we just have to trust a lie, let it let it go. And not be so frustrated with a things that don't go according to our plan. That's part of being a believer. Okay, so Okay.
Now this mother came
to her eyes. Can you tell me when this story started with this mother feeling safe for time or no? No. Even if she rescued her child one day, is it guaranteed for life or no? No. But now I didn't just reunite her with her child, because reuniting her is okay. But that doesn't mean the child is safe. Now she is reunited inside the castle. And Allah gave her permanent residence and sponsored her family. And she's living inside the most secure building in Egypt. If there's one place where this child will never be in danger, because we're inside, and instead of being raised as a slave, he is now going to be raised as a prince. And even she got higher classification because she works at
the castle. So she doesn't have to do manual labor outside her and her family got taken care of because she trusted a lot. She's Is she a prophet? Or no? No, Allah goes out of his way to help people, even if they're nonprofits. Don't think that you are excluded from these miracles that I have excluded from these miracles. These are not just stories of prophets. These are stories of regular people who trust her.
She's an awesome lady. She's the mother of a prophet. But at the end of the day, she's all just a believer, as we are. So we have to learn from that and be inspired from her examples of how that played out in the castle
when he died,
so she could know for sure, probably the promise of the lies absolutely true. Every time she sees that baby, she remembered the promise that will budge from
what I can tell him that.
However, most people have no idea. Most people don't know how the promise symbol works. Most people just rush to judgment gets frustrated too quickly. They can't wait for things to go their way. They don't know how the promise of love works. The other meaning of the is most people have no idea that was his real mother. When I when I came back.
Okay, now sighs being raised inside this castle. The story fast forwards just like it does in movies. You remember the Lion King going on top of the bark of the tree and singing a leap away. And all of a sudden from being little Simba. He becomes gigantic Simba. It's like that.
Then when he turned to old age, whoa, when he became a teenager who saw this I was a teen. The young man was the law and he became let me just use contemporary language here. He got jacked, he was ripped. He was huge.
Dude was big. He was he was massive. Unless his spy excuse me for the bark of a tree, meaning you just touch his arm and
you know, so if you run into, like someone like him in the hallway of a high school you wake up in the ER, like what just happened. Last thing I remember I got hit by a tree. You know, what's the one now unless has about this young man. So far the only description we have is he's become a teenager. And he's very strong. He's gripped. Okay, two things. Now, before I go further. Is there an image in our mind in our minds of young, young, extremely strong, physically very capable teenagers? What are these teenagers that are extremely strong, tall football team wrestling team, you name it? What are they associated with?
What are the associated? You're right. They're stupid. They do stupid things. They think a stranger can overcome anything they like to pick fights. You looked at me? No, I don't
see you outside at three o'clock.
That used to work in the 80s. I don't know if that still be there be square.
Yeah. Hi. You don't think they will go speeding on the highway? You know, hanging out late at night, picking fights with people crushing beer cans on your forehead, whatever. You do dumb things. What is it was he about his job. And by the way, he's not just young. He's not just strong. He's been raised as a friend. So he's loaded.
He got money. He got a nice ride.
He's got a nice ride. He's got a nice house.
So when guys when a young man good looking strong in a monkey situation. I don't know it's a dangerous combination. Things don't mean the end of the only ever doing smart things with that. That's a lethal combination, isn't it? And once as
we gave him wisdom, oh my god, a young, strong, wealthy, independent teenager who lives in a castle can do anything he wants pretty much above the law, because soldier sued him and gave him what wisdom anybody else in that position is utterly stupid.
Stupid. And the first thing I learned is, wisdom
also means the ability to make the right decision at the right time. Self restraint has become also common the Arabic language is that when something is typed, in other words, the other type restraint on himself. And then of course, as well in men and knowledge. So this guy is strong. This young man is strong, wealthy, privileged. On top of that, he has wisdom. On top of that he's extremely knowledgeable. What gigantic young men do you associate with spending time in the library and understanding philosophical wisdom and knowing a lot of things about world history and poetry For God's sake. For God's sake, that is an impossible combination. By the way, it also sounds like the
Which is why it's cool surprise, he got married and the sooner he gets married later, a little later on. Mecca woke up just again.
It says with a little bit.
So now this young man who's been brought up as he's brought up, he realizes that his skin color is different from the people in the palace. He doesn't look like them. What does he look like?
He looks like the slaves. He looks like the slaves work all day, who take beatings, who are who are whoever.
And so what is he decided to do? When he decides to do supplies? Amazing. He felt bad for his people. And he really just like they were an enemy to him. And yeah, I told you these to give him 30 bucks, right? So they're saluting you without really serving you. They're serving you but they're not really serving you. And they put the glass on the table ALEKS little extra too hard. You know, but they're forced to do it, because they don't likes you.
But when he went out and he saw that the his people get beat up all the time. These people are depressed all the time. And he can't actually help them because it's illegal.
The thing of it was the Arabs had a particular structure in their society.
They used to make the people work in the early morning, until the afternoon. by the afternoon the sun gets way too hot, even for the slave master to make you work to whip you into work. So the master has to take a break. When the master takes a break, obviously who else is going to take a break? The sleeves are going to take a break. So everybody went into their quarters and got an afternoon nap. And then they came back around us Our time has started again until the evening. So the afternoon time was completely silent in the city. No construction work was happening. Everybody was in their homes because of the intensity. Okay.
This was the time by the way is that a comfortable time people
No, this was the only time he could go out there and help people treat the wounded, finish somebody else's work for them take care of the sick, and nobody will notice because everybody's sleeping. That's why Allah says what does
he have nothing. When he entered the car, the time everybody was knocked out, imagine going into Times Square, nobody's there, because of the intensity. So now he goes in. And by the way, I didn't mention one thing, we cannot you cannot say, the last description of this young man was that is how we compensate those who excel, you know, the definition of insanity is not right. But you recognize the presence of a lot constantly. So we're not only learning that he's intelligent, strong, wise, wealthy, but extremely spiritual to Oh my God.
That's, that's unheard of. unheard of. And he's concerned about humanity. So he goes in the middle of the afternoon, this young man could do anything with his time, nobody will question him for what he does with his time. He's got the ride, he's got the money. He's got the privilege. You know, he could be doing anything he wants when somebody goes into the city where people are working and he wants to help people out. That's what he does with his free time. What do young people do with their free time? What are teenagers do with their free time? Hey, bro, what you're doing nothing? What you're doing nothing. You want to go to nothing together? Yeah.
So if you're gonna go to something, yeah. What are we going? Oh, no.
You got so much free time.
This young man doesn't feel like he has free time. He needs to do something. He wants to help people. He has that urge inside him like I always given me so much to do something with it. What do you think you got that feeling from? He got that feeling from his mothers.
They raise the right. So now he goes into the city for whatever fee however, the lady yesterday, he found the entire time square is empty. There's two dudes there. They're fighting each other to the death. They're fighting each other. Nobody else on the block. So he gets closer. What's going on? You see two guys fighting, you can see what's going on. So you go closer. And he finds out.
he gets caught and he sees this guy is from his own people, the Israelites. And this one is enemy. The other one is his enemy. Who's the enemy?
The Egyptians, even though he lives in a castle, Allah described him as the enemy. Why is it treated him like an enemy and he can sense it. Also, because we treat his people like that. So he since the animosity from them. Now before I go on,
a young man who lives in a non Muslim society. Listen to this story, a young man who lives in a non Muslim society and sees that the society in which he lives has a government and that government attacks fellow Muslims.
They attack fellow Muslims. And he goes out on the street and he sees one more such incident. Oh, man, this government is always attacking my people. And here in front of me look at what they're doing this another Egyptian soldiers beating up another one of my brothers. What conclusion will he reach who's wrong and who's right?
Egyptian is wrong. These are ladies the victim like their victim last 1000 times they were a victim. Obviously, you're a victim now. He will base He will judge based on his experience, right? And he's a young man and young men that have worried he gets close and he sees this fight is going on. First of all,
she has to be
the one who was from his group. The one who was from his group was from his group. These real life. He asked him for help against the guy that was his enemy. Who's the enemy.
So the guy is taking a beating ground and pound. He's gonna keep coming out of his face. And he goes, yo, bro, yo guy helped me out here. And the word used for health is pretty awesome. It's the law. It's the law that is used when you ask for the rain.
outside a salon is so tall that he has to punch down like the rain. I will rain down on you like thunder from the sky. You ever seen trash talk from wrestlers?
Right. it'll rain down on this dude for me, man.
He has he
got caught up in the heat of the moment. He punched the guy.
He punched the guy. He and the guy has done he's dead. One Punch dead. He's on the floor, passed out not breathing done. Now the young man gets into his first fight his first fight against the soldier to a train soldier and he punches him and kills him in one shot. What's he gonna do next?
is realized maybe
that's what he's gonna do better recognize who you're messing with.
You know what, you know what he does? Immediately he says caught up in a pond. This is the kind of work this is the work of shavon This is the kind of thing she does. Now, let me stop here and make you understand something. Do you remember not too long ago some idiot made a video, he thinks he made about the profits of a lot more news on YouTube, right. And some equally intelligent person thought it was a good idea to give a shout out
to promote it. And then some equally intelligent people, Muslims, most of them watch that video to get angry.
So the the field video that was watched by two people. Now we can watch by no means that people have made it to the news and publicity and all of it. Right? Who gave me publicity? muscles did. We did. We made a big deal. It wasn't a big deal. It wasn't a big deal. We made it a big deal. Okay, and once we made it a big deal, I decided this is happening over and over again. Danish cartoons, this film this one attack, another attack on burning. This stuff happens like every few months, right? So I decided to write or say something about it in Arabic. And we'll do and in English. Some of you might have seen that little film I made a video I made about that and what our reaction should be as
Muslims. Hi. I got flooded with emails, angry emails from young Muslims, especially from Pakistan. Go figure.
I didn't know the regular people in Pakistan. Actually I did anyway.
What do you want us to do?
You want to just sit there? Do nothing. You can tell there's Why don't you guys piling up on the stage?
123 Let's go. Let's go all the way down. Keep going. Keep going.
No, this is the key moment. Keep. Keep moving. Keep good progress. Excellent. Excellent. And yeah. There you go. Okay. I used to run a preschool.
Yeah, I started preschool. It's really hard. Okay. They're not as bad as you got. Kids. Oh,
cool. My mother.
Anyway, so this guy, these guys writing these angry emails? What do you want us to do? Nothing.
And I was like, Yeah, you're right. The right thing to do is flip somebody call over and burn it. Why didn't I think of that express logo or message or something? So that, you know, apparently, KFC is in boxes on his collar for COVID fried chicken.
So I wrote back respectfully, I wrote back, sir, the day you do nothing, you will be a great favor. If there's one person who should do nothing, it is you.
That would be awesome for this.
saddam saw the opportunity to help somebody and he thought this is another case of my Muslim brother being oppressed. I should do something he got involved. Now was his intention. Good? Yes. But did he rushed the judgment? Yes, those also tells us
shavon rushing is from the shavon and Moosa realizes I rushed and says this is the kind of thing Stefan wants, even if it's a good thing, but you rushed into it. And young people, man, they'd love to rush into things. And that's from shavon. That's what you don't understand the full situation. You understand how to control your emotions and then come to a decision and Arjuna to me, he says this is the kind of thing that gets people to do, you know, in the movies, a bisquit, misguiding omnius, misguiding enemy, it seems in this ayah, that Stefan is being blamed. And it seems that this is a slam dunk, blaming who, himself but in the very next guy, as he says column B enable them to
see he's Ambassador I in fact, did wrong myself. I'm at fault. Yes, I fell into rushing to judgment, which happens because of what was actually done, but I should not have done it. I wrote myself. That's wisdom. Wisdom is not that you don't make mistakes. Wisdom is you know how to react after you make a mistake. Wisdom is to recognize your mistake.
What were the good things given to Sally's wisdom and knowledge, right? wisdom and knowledge. You know what's unfortunate. A lot of people watch how align the Muslim religious community. A lot of young people are interested in knowledge. They want to memorize the Quran, they want to study. They want to take a lot of notes in every lecture. They want to like go attend classes and courses they want to travel abroad and study knowledge, knowledge, knowledge, knowledge, knowledge, and yet there is almost no emphasis on wise. Wisdom, man, how do you teach your mom? How do you treat your neighbor? How do you treat your friends? How do you control your temper? How do you not feel
Really nice feeling. Why do you hang out late at night talking about how you're going to study?
later you're not even waking up, dude. What are you learning knowledge? wisdom first. Tip first before even knowledge because knowledge is easy. Now it is easy. Even orientalist can learn this now.
Knowledge isn't hard. You know what the hard part is right? wisdom, using your head common sense, using your intelligence properly. So, it's not a bad thing that we glorify knowledge. But it's equally important that we glorify wisdom, common sense, good decision making majority. That is where we're lacking as a big problem.
Myself, one of the most beautiful lessons of the salon, one of the most beautiful lessons of this, here's a question so many Muslims have, maybe you have issues? How do I know if Allah forgave me?
I messed up. I did something I shouldn't have done. I said something I shouldn't have done. I went somewhere I shouldn't have gone. It's already done. It's happened. I feel bad about it. I asked Allah forgive me. But how do I know that I'm actually forgiven? Can I actually move on? Or should I keep worrying about that sin? How would I know this story has the answer? What is he just done?
He's accidentally killed someone is that a small sin or a big one? That's a pretty big one. That's a pretty big one. It's not easy to move on from that one. He says won't be nice to see.
So forgive me.
Allah says then he forgave him who says not a prophet yet, he will go to the mountain to become a prophet. He's not a prophet yet, but Allah says, so he forgave him. What we're learning in this ayah is when you make a mistake, and you turn to a lie, and you sincerely, genuinely, truly turn to honestly turn to a lie and say out loud, I am truly sorry. Please forgive me. It is over. Allah has forgiven you. There is no I wonder if he forgave me. There is no such thing. If you were sincere, it is done. move on with your life. move on with your life. You don't dwell on it after that.
It's over. A lot of people refuse to move on because they don't learn from it. They don't learn how it lets you move on.
He forgave him.
Did he reveal to him that he's forgiving him? No. But his mother's taught him well, if you ask him less sincerely to forgive, never believed that a loved one forgive. That's part of your mind. As part of your total in the love, how do you expect a lot of the one who answers all the lies that you asked him one of the most beautiful laws there is? Instead of asking a lot of forgive a lot will say no, I'll think about it. No, no, no. The only condition he has is what? sincerity, honesty. Real guilt from you. If you have real guilt is done. It's done.
to him. Absolutely. He's extremely forgiving, always giving love and mercy.
So he says what's on his heart says
the next day he says I love because of the paper you did to me. Question is what favorite and 11,000,001 he doesn't allow me to reveal to Him that He forgive him. Here's the favor. That in the wisdom to ask a law for forgiveness is a huge gift.
If you're smart enough to turn back to a line apologize sincerely, that itself is an incredible gift of a lot because what comes after that is you are in fact with him.
He says what a big gift you gave me my love. You gave me the intelligence to turn to you and ask for forgiveness when they're the
one of you
versus people who make a mistake, they mess up they immediately remember a lot and they asked a lot of forgive you
and they keep doing the same thing again and again. That's all you got to do. And he says master because of the favor you've done to me
unova he has been booted he mean then I will never back up criminals ever again. I will always investigate fully I will always find out really what's going on. And in the eye. There's a hint that the guy that he helped out the guy that he punched the other dude for was actually a criminal because when the other guy is dead, he's going through his pockets. Thanks a lot. The guy by the way is realize Yeah, we bros right one a month. Yeah.
What's your name?
And he's like Moosa Thanks for looking out. I'm out of here. And by the way, breaks almost over, people are gonna come out, you might not want to be next to a dead body. Maybe you should, you know, get scared because if you're standing next to a course, there might be a little yellow triangle, it slowly starts turning red,
you know, so you might want to get away
blend into a crowd maybe jump into a stack possibly. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Maybe you want to get out of here and some some geeks here know what I'm talking about
learning how to do stuff.
Okay, so now he got scarce he hid out. Next morning he had to go into the city again.
You have to go for some work into the city. But the other half in Medina in the morning he went to the city now in the morning is on the streets packed or empty pack and buy last afternoon and they discover a dead body. So there's an investigation going on. Cops are asking people there's interrogations, right police checkpoints and all of that. And he walks in and he's like, what's going on. And you know, if you're guilty, you kind of look suspicious. So let's just
see how it panned out. He walked into the city full of fear, watching every step kind of blending into the crowd and watching every step carefully going where he goes, maybe even putting a hold on kind of avoiding eye contact, and he turns into an alley to away from the crowd. He turns into an alley play that and
then out of nowhere, the same guy that was asking for his help yesterday is screaming for him again. Hey,
dude, I love when can you
This is unbelievable. Of all the people that could have run into this guy. He's asking my help again. What do you think I've done? He says
you are obviously a con artist. I'm not helping you again. You crazy. And I'm just standing there. While What's happening?
What's happening? That guy's taking a beating the guy from yesterday. Now does he deserve a meeting probably.
He's taking a pounding, and the Egyptian guy coming up. Now as he's beating, the guy gets such a bad beating. He's about to be killed.
In the lie, three people. There's Moosa standing there, like I'm not getting involved again. There's the guy that comes in yesterday who's taking a beating, and there's Egypt who was beating him up. And this guy is bleeding now and looks like he's about to die.
I cannot have two lives on my conscience.
If I just stand here and do nothing, he's gonna die. But I'm not gonna go and punch anybody either, because I know I'm
not going to do that either.
It seems like maybe he's even leaning on a wall, the ISS but then eventually and
Eventually when he showed the intention to grab the other guy, the enemy troubles. Now grabbing him means he's not gonna find him. He's only going to restrain him to stop the fight to defuse What are we learning? It was thin, strong, young men should only get involved when he can watch, participate in the violence or ending the violence and the violence without resorting to violence. If that is your power, do it if not stay away because you'll be part of the problem not part of the solution. That's what we're learning from the story of brilliant.
So he shows the intent to grab a hold of which guy what do you think is gonna grab the Egyptian are these real life? He's gonna go grab the Egyptian. So he's walking over now who's on the floor taking a beating?
The Israel like the Israelites sees Moosa walking over and he completely misunderstands.
What is the Israel I think he's coming for? To join in the beating? Yeah, I hate him too.
Now, the Israelite is thinking to himself, I have taken 100 punches from an Egyptian I can take it. But if that guy punches me one time,
is not gonna work out too well. So he gets nervous, and he says, I gotta save my life. The only thing I have on him is I can rat him out. So from the ground taking a meeting. Moosa, he goes hey, Moosa
Kalani Do you want to kill me?
Just like you killed somebody yesterday.
Oh, there's dead silence in the block the cancer like
everybody. He didn't just say Hey, man, you want to kill me like you killed someone yesterday. He said, Hey,
do you want to kill me like you kill someone yesterday, even the conference being this guy. I was like, hey, wait, that's the guy
who saw this. I was gonna do what now? He's gonna run
Do you just want to be a bully in the land? You don't want to help people out. You're not here to help people just want to beat people up. Guess what the criminal the con artist says? What's odd is that I was going for a run. He's out of there.
Now, I told you one of the most interesting parts of this story you guys don't do it. Okay, with attention span. All right, so we're gonna get really cool now, if you stay awake, though. Okay. So, did you know that musasa actually had a really close Egyptian friend who was in the military and was actually promoted to a police chief? So one of the police chiefs of Egypt was a friend of
mine actually, because of the friendship with Musa he actually also become a Muslim. But he didn't tell the other police because obviously if he tells him he's a Muslim, he loses his job. Now, who hates Busan from day one who remembers?
soldiers, the cops, they hate him? They hate him. The news gets out there who's killed somebody?
The news reaches police headquarters. All the police chiefs have a meeting. Who's in the meeting?
This friend who they don't know they have a meeting and say, listen, obviously, we're gonna arrest moussaka. But if we arrest Mossad and bring him back to the castle, the pharaoh will enter intervene because the pharaoh loves him so much. He'll go easy on him. He'll pardon him. This is our only chance we should kill moose out on site and make up some stories. We shouldn't tell them what's going on. This isn't the only chance we'll get to actually get this guy. So give the order shoot to kill. Don't give the order arrest give the order what shoot to kill. Now usually if somebody does a crime, what's the order shoot to kill her arrest? Alright, but now in a secret meeting, they've
decided to figure out who's in the meeting.
This right now because it's his friend. He will know where to hide him.
Otherwise he has no way of finding who everybody's looking for. But he's hiding but because it's his friend he knows where he hangs up he finds him right away.
Somebody that I met him that his friend came from the far end of the city running
he said hey Busan in one of
the chiefs are making a scheme against you How would he know what is the secret scheme? Because he's one of them. They have to do cannot arrest you rescue not Musa g Luca. Luca naturist you want to kill me here. You gotta get out of town. fuckload indeed are coming on Nasim. I mean, well for you. I love you. I hate to see you go. But you got to go. There's no way you can stay here anymore. His friend comes in and helps him out.
He left from the city hall if I'm full of fear. Did you get a
chance to get his stuff together some things even shop nothing. And even as he was leaving hot if I'm full of fear in Tanaka watching me start YouTube.
I'm watching him.
He was he walked out of the city fearful watching me step snuck out. Now ancient cities used to have these giant balls, right? You come out of the city. Some of you have Assassin's Creed fanatics, right? When you go out in the city on your horse or on foot, you pause, you check the rest of the map, you put a mile marker and head that way. You have a GPS, the
GPS when he goes out to eat, you know what's in front of him. What kind of landscape desert, open desert? Now here's the thing guys to demonstrate this powerful if I'm standing this way.
1000 miles that way, I don't know There must be something
2000 3000 4000 So
obviously, when we face this way, what city are we facing? We're facing. But if I change my angle by one degree, what city am I facing?
by another degree was sitting my face. You know, and I keep turning? If I go around like that, what am I faced
the entire world and literally facing the entire world. When you're traveling in the desert and you go one degree off, or you're gonna end up somewhere else? Totally.
You need a very precise man. First of all these has been achieved by the Minister rescue me from the wrongdoing, they should get me out of this city. Don't let me get caught. Once he gets out. He's walking around, like, what should I do? What should I do? He's never been out for
comedy and beautiful when his face turned in the direction of money and there's an Arab city called McGinn isn't near or very far. It's very, very hard when he's facing that city. Does he know he's facing that city? No, this place is going this way, this way, this way. Where should I go where
Should I go? But the second this space turned in the direction of money and
he said, perhaps my master will guide me to the straightest path of love with that feeling in his heart, the second his face turned towards oblivion. His face was a little bit this way, he wouldn't have been here a little bit that way with him again. The second is phase one that way, that way, people are feeling in him. Is he a prophet? Yes. No. Divine GPS.
GPS when he goes,
and he's going.
I don't know how he's surviving. Strong and he goes as far as he can. And follow law. Eventually, days, weeks go by and finally he reaches the waters of lithium.
Mariana, he got to the waters on Monday, and oh, my God, water, hydrate, relax. He sits by the Bank of the water. He takes a couple of sips. sips whatever it he must have been a nasty spoon. He saw a group of people giving their animals water to drink.
So some people are feeding their sheep, their camels, their goals, their towns. Well, what does that mean Guney him and far away from them up the hill in LA Jamie, there are two girls, two women. He sees two women on top of the hill
that are pulling out their sheep, their sheep see the water. So what does she want to do? drink the water. So they go down and the girls pull him back up and the sheep go man, and they pull him down again. And they go back up. And there's an Olympic bash happening on top of the hill. And he's watching this tug of war from the bottom of the hill. He's like, what is going on up there? So he decides to walk up to these two girls and ask him what's going on?
Does he know these two girls? These are women, by the way? Is he a young man. And these are why we will learn later. These are both mature non married women. Woman Oh,
young brother is going to go up and walk talk to some American sisters. This is a real situation in the salon. What's he going to say to them? Now before I tell you what the great Busan salon is amazing, they are set to them. I want to tell you a really sad and funny story. You guys go check up on NASA
is a good friend of mine. He's got a very twisted sense of humor.
We like to go to conventions together, and especially observed youth behavior.
It's the thing we do.
So right one of these conventions, obviously most youth are not in the lecture, they are outside the lecture. So we skip the lectures too. So we were hanging outside of the convention center we're walking by there's a bunch of guys and girls talking or whatever, you know, we're not gonna be the police and you know, we're just gonna see what they're doing, you know, sort of walking by and this this guy. So slick, man, thank you for the flyer. Yes, I'm on this flyer. Thank you. Fantastic. Okay.
So, so slick. This guy goes to this girl, he goes, today's the saddest day of my life.
Our walking, we both stopped or like we got to hear this
golden right here.
He does not know we're standing behind him. He does not know the status. Good morning.
Anyways, well, after today, I'm gonna go back to Ohio. And I don't even know your name.
And at this point, we're looking at each other like
he can't help himself. He can now view the text and he goes
so he turns the guy over shake my hand rolled that was
all the teenagers disappear.
Needless to say,
there are some very interesting interactions between young Muslim men and women that happen on many settings, parking lots of massages, Sunday school, Islamic school MSA conventions, you name it. There are some interesting interactions that happen at the bazaar. You know?
We're gonna learn something about these interactions. Moosa walks up to these two girls that are struggling, and instead of going up and kind of, you know, dropping it, like what are you guys?
By the way, I'm studying studying.
He says the best thing ever. He goes up to them and says, I need to sit down he says ma, ma, what is wrong with both of you?
To give you an idea of how I'm going to go off on a tangent, by the way, guys, I need about 40 minutes. Okay with that.
Okay, and it's getting hot in here, but are you 40 minutes? Okay? Okay. So listen, if I'm gonna go to the
gym for a minute just to help you understand the word hustle, hustle. Ibraheem alehissalaam had just come to his house young men that he didn't know before these were angels disguised as human beings. He opens the door This is
why do some people but come on in it's okay guys come on in now these are young men that have been journey. journey. What
are the food bro?
Eating the restaurant,
bro. When guys want a road trip is the most important thing. Food actually revolves around the food we eat at the parking lot of the restaurant or the restaurant. We don't we look for massage. And second, we look for restaurants first. So we have is an essential companion of every you know, every traveler, right? So now these guys are obviously young man. So he's realizing they must be really into food. So what does he do? He doesn't take much time goes into bags while there's a calf barbecues the meat mixed barbecue
style, brings it back puts the juicy beef right in front of them, and notices nobody's even going for nobody's even looking at them.
The hands aren't even going to it. And he realized although because in ancient times, there actually was an assassin's creed.
Their creed was if you're going to someone's house to assassinate him, don't eat his food. It is a matter of honor for if you have eaten his food he has done you could say you can do him harm. This is the assassins code. Now these guys three young men sitting they refuse to eat his food. He's like Oh, snap.
This can be good. The only time they don't need it, but they're gonna lie.
They've always been afraid.
To that we were sent by Allah to congratulate you that you are going to have a baby boy, congratulations. The wife starts laughing because the whole story behind it right? But Ibrahim is really smart. He knows that he does not send three angels to tell me about what
one day it was something else is going on. And he goes Nah.
Hey, what are you really here for? What's really going on? What's up with you guys? And they said, Oh yeah, we're here to kill everyone in the nation.
By the way,
but he could send something was wrong. But he said ma
says something is wrong. He goes up to two girls. He says what's wrong with you, but you do not have to come on.
They both respond. Now ladies, parents, we are trying to raise our girls with high AR.
We're trying to release them with modesty in a society that doesn't have any. In a world that is losing modesty. In a world where even modest because of technology in modesty is in our face all the time. And our inventory concept of modesty is keep girls at home, keep them away from the outside world. Don't let them talk to strangers don't
don't shuffle them box them. If we could create a bubble inside which they can live, which had one way mirror you can keep them in there they can see the world the world can see them if there's only one way we can make them invisible. Yet these two girls or we're outside and musasa goes and talks to them and they don't respond.
They don't they don't get shy. shyness in Islam is not about
shyness in Islam is about keeping your composure, not making small talk, staying serious staying on point. And so they say to him dynasty, we don't get why animals drink hepatitis, they only are until the entire flock is diamond because we don't like to go and mix elbows with men. And those men down there are perverts and they don't respect women, and they don't give us our space space and they wish to lead us and lead us and you know and worse. They're You know, they're not decent men, so there's no reason to humiliate ourselves. We'd rather wait the entire afternoon until all those men are died. And then we're gonna feed our sheep.
And our dads ha Hi.
Back it up, buddy. orgasm. Good deal. Now.
This is an old man. It also means our dad has a lot of clout. He's a big deal. In other words, they don't. They're not gonna ask for an autograph. They're like some really big guy walked over to us looks homeless to us. Like what is wrong with you? It doesn't sound very friendly. So they're like listen is a big deal. So you better you better step off. That's basically what they're saying.
In other words, these girls know how to handle themselves outside strangers. You know how to handle themselves, which is just not like one of you allow me to please take the sheet from you take them downstairs, and I shall move these other men like flies from your animals and bring them back to you one barn, for there is no price for awesomeness.
He won't do that. You know, when he did, he just grabbed a sheep row. And
he just walked away. And he felt the animals
he gave me a double string, brought him back and left him there made no eye contact,
then sat back down in the shade where he was. He didn't say No need to thank me sisters.
to help help and get out again. Some of you have so much higher than if a sister has a flat tire and are hiring
to help her out. And some of you are such volunteers.
You will over you help her with the tire you leave accidentally leave your business card in the backseat, one on the side.
seriously, we can have respectful interaction with each other without crossing a line. And this is not something new in the car was
always been there. It is natural. By the way, what we learned in this was amazing because of life teaching us there will be women in the workforce. He's also teaching us there will be women in the workforce in a non Muslim society that is hostile to modest women. And they will have to deal with that situation, even if it means they have to do more work than everybody else, and have a tougher situation than everybody else is that relevant to our times. So how to love
what he puts in the baffles me Who would have thought women in the workforce where a father is too old to be able to do the work of the house and the women have to afford the house is actually talked about in his book,
as in the legacy of societies, and don't have to deal with the outside world. And the father obviously raised them right knowing that they are outside, but he still is forced to send them outside. But he trusts them enough to be able to handle the outside world. And clearly they know how to handle themselves. So who's are these leads the animals brings them back to them sits back down in the shade and unlike when you guys never looks back and goes
nothing he's done. He's talking to a lot.
He says caught on MP in the
master whatever could you send my way I am my Mac is broken. I'm desperate. I can use it. This is one of those guys that I have almost on every DC fridge I've ever seen.
Nobody knows what that means. But we have it on our fridge to DC thing. I don't know where we got it from. I don't know how all of you have the same sticker Where do you buy these stickers?
But anyway, let me tell you something about this Doc, two things that are really important about this Doc, two things, okay. The first of them is what the person is doing his past but he's embarrassed about
it also, he knows how I forgave him, but he still feels like he should make up. So he feels like every time I get an opportunity to help someone. I know I have to take it I feel desperate to want to do good deeds, especially to help people as part of my makeup assignment.
So he says yeah, Allah, I just helped these two girls. But if you send me any other higher opportunity, in minima and
high in any good opportunity you send me to help somebody else to do another video, I will totally take it. I could use it. If you have a dark past, then you need to feel a hunger to volunteer. You need to feel a hunger to do good deeds. You need to feel a hunger to help out at the Sunday school at the relief organization and Islamic school program at the NSA doesn't matter. You got to help out. You got to do stuff because you got to make up for your past. You have to feel that urge that's in this dawn. The second thing in this drive is Jada I am homeless. I am a fugitive from the law. I have no food. I have a folding. I have no shelter. The only thing I have is the shape. Whatever you
give me I'll take it.
I won't have any machines do the work. I won't have enough money.
Whatever you give me I will take
these girls, usually they waited until How long before they can feed their animals all afternoon. Did they feed their animals earlier today? So they got home earlier or no
They got over here. They got over here who's at home? What did they say? all foreign offices? What are you doing here at three o'clock? I expected you at eight o'clock. They said, well, there was this really giant guy, kind of like a dream. And he came in, he just took our stuff and he found our animals. And He and the Father says the look at you know, he kept his eyes down. Did you make small talk? Was he smirking? Was he smiling? Did he say his name? But he asked if you're married, he called you? Or did he ask you where you live? And he asked me anything else? You know, did he make any kind of gestures, Dad, you know how men are dead. You weren't raised. You know, in some some
vacuum. We know how minority wasn't like that. He was very respectful. And as a matter of fact, after he was done helping us, he didn't ask for money. He didn't ask for a compliment. We didn't compliment him because we didn't feel like it. He just sat back down under a tree and he looked like he was praying. The only thing this father knows about this man is from who?
if you are fathers of daughters, and your father, your daughters go to college. their daughters go to work. their daughters are going to high school and you've raised them right? Then you have to trust their opinion about men.
You have to trust their opinion about men. He trusts his girls opinions. How dare you? How men talk to you? How did you let him get my sheep to get milk? He didn't yell at them. He said, good. I trust you girls. What are we learning in this one? Also, fathers have to have a trusting open relationship with their daughters. Man. That's a crisis in this oma fathers don't talk to daughters.
Girls are scared of their fathers don't talk to him. Father just says did you do your homework today? Yes.
There is supposed to be more to your relationship. And most of the girls when you tell them, Why don't you talk to your dad, they say he wouldn't understand. He doesn't understand me. We don't really talk. We don't really have that kind of relationship. That is a tragedy. It's a tragedy. Because we have legacies of our own messengers.
This beautiful family where the girls actually have to go out and they wouldn't have open communication with their father their father, trust them. He trust them. So now if you are fathers, you send two of your girls to work. Why is it smart to send two girls not one girl able to be huge. Okay, you get up?
You said over there?
Yes. I'm gonna stop you and let you
now if I hear from you guys, you guys are one of the girls section you
want us to autograph on watching you? You can play? You can play. Okay. All right.
I trust you. Okay, good. where we're at.
Something about Islam.
All the daughters, their daughters, they came to their father. Now why is it spying to send two girls to work?
Because you said what is even more danger
to his family than one. They're more confident that way. They can watch each other's back. They protect one another. Okay. He hears this story and he sends one of his daughters back to get
what will be smarter and your expectation? said what? Two pajama.
One of them came walking shyly. When they were two they were confident and tough. When there's one she got shy. So Pamela, why did you have so much trust that instead of sending to for protection, he said, What? Why? If you think he's got good character, I trust you enough. You go. One of you is good enough. You know how to handle yourself. So
Now on In the meantime, oh, boy, do I gotta tell you a lesson from the Quran that you will use. This is something particularly for the bases in the house. The Arabs don't have this problem that much. There is a there's a saint of the Arabic language inspired by a teaching of the prophets of Allah that says,
provided us the dignity of a man is that he doesn't need help from other people. Right? So dignified people respectful. People have a problem asking others for help. Like it's not easy for them to just ask for money, ask for a car, ask for a favor because they want to be independent as part of their dignity. And people who ask you for things all the time they lose respect in your eyes.
People lose respect in your eyes. Right now. We have in DC culture, this amazing thing called the Kindle.
It's amazing. I love this thing. What it means is if you go to somebody's house and they offer you tea, Josh a question. What is the most
anything when you when you
when you have to say no.
And if you go to like an Arab family's house, Yanina you say no, it means no.
money goes into the house, he goes, You watch it.
And then when the nations are leaving,
we have this thing called, where we don't like if somebody is offering you something.
So you don't have a job. You don't have a job if somebody says, hey, there's an opening in my company. No, okay, it's okay. I don't really
need to pay the electricity. Bill. You want here your car sitting is you don't have to put the gas in the car. Somebody's offering you at least an interview like oh, no, he I can't I can't
take care of you.
money helps these two girls that didn't do it for money.
No, he turned to
give me anything. I'll take it. Yes. The girl comes over and says in.
Boy, Dad wants to pay you no doubt about it. I didn't come back because I like you or nothing. It is no doubt my dad, he's the one calling you because he wants to pay you for the animals you fed for us. He doesn't
pay for this.
do that. He didn't do that. These are let's go. Let's get me. Why? Because he just asked a lot, y'all. I helped me out. The girl came and said my dad wants to hear you. He goes Thank you, Allah. I got it. This is you answering my God. He understands the connection between the two alone will not help you from some, you know, wrapped up sandwich from the sky.
It will come through people. I was helpful come through people. And when it comes, don't use your
turning back. Whose favor?
favor? Don't turn it back. Don't turn it back. So he goes, Okay, let's get paid.
And by the way, this girl was shy when she came up to him, huh? Why? Because naturally, a single girl, one girl talking to one man, she's supposed to feel hesitation. And the only reason she was forced to do it is
to have a good reason.
Right? Otherwise, in a normal circumstance, you should not be comfortable talking to guys. That's not a natural fit for you. And if you become totally comfortable talking to the MSE President, for hours and hours, then there is a problem with that. That's not the normal way you're supposed to be. Let him make you like that a lot. What is that? Yeah. And you know, when there's two of you, you can be in the meeting and confident I don't think you know what you're doing. I don't think the program should be on the third, it should be on the fifth. And we're not making Wi Fi we're making a fire ourselves. And you're gonna search yourself because you're in a group or when you're by yourself.
You gotta you gotta learn where to draw the line. You know, you have to do that you you guys do. Don't take advantage of the shyness of girls. If you start wanting to discuss the convention when you know you didn't stop. There are plenty of other people you can discuss. Why don't you Vcc and her father winner.
I'm sure her other online convention discussion. Okay.
So he went, he went
to the house to the house. He showed up and he met this old man saying, sure, I don't agree.
There's plenty of evidence that he wouldn't be considered old man that is respected in the hood on. And so you sat with him and he noticed this man has a lot of wisdom. And a young man who's been alone who's been stripped from home sees this old man with like, you know what, by the way, young man, by the way, here's something you will find comfort in talking to old men.
You have to find it. You have to find older men, men have wisdom in your community that you can engage in conversation with talking to people your own age, once you've done
talking to people that are older than you makes you smarter, and it's soothing. They have advice, good advice for you
to have that kind of person. So he finds this person and he
pauses he went there and told him all the stories that were to tell.
Yeah, I was supposed to be killed but somehow miraculously survived. His agent accidentally killed somebody. And I'm a fugitive from the law.
They want one determiner, also homeless.
who's listening from the kitchen?
And he's telling me, this is how I ended up in by the end. I'm homeless, right? Now listen that
now the girl goes, Baba, Baba, Baba, Baba, can you talk to you per se?
The father comes over. And she goes, yeah. Dad, I love you so much. My respectful father adapted
that I that I love you and I respect you, instead of hire him.
hire him. He just told you that he murdered someone accidentally. He's homeless. He's away from his family. He has these The, the the kingdom is looking for him. I mean, what better resume Are you going to get?
Hire this guy instead.
And she gave reasons enough.
The best kind of person you can hire is this is the strong, and the honest, trustworthy. And this guy is really strong. He can handle himself. He looked he took care of the animals, people, the other guys like they were frogs, and he took care of the animals. And he's so honest, he didn't hit on us. He did small talk, he told you the most embarrassing things about himself. So I mean, that's the two hard things to find in an employee, by the way, competence qualifications, and sometimes they have qualifications, but they don't have honesty. And sometimes they have honesty, but they don't have qualifications
that hire him. But let me do the DC headshake. Oh, hi.
Let me change the story a little bit. Your daughter goes to college, she comes home one day and says dad, today the hotpot at the MSC was amazing. It was about duck water never heard of before. And the father says we'll give it to his brother from the MSA finally
She's done talking about it.
He's saying there's a guy on campus. He's very modest, he's respectful. He's religiously observant, he's intelligent. He's headed towards a good career. He works. He takes care of his family. I've already done my homework, I'm not going to come to you and say gajuwaka sister up, I'm going to say the footbaww was pretty awesome. And you're supposed to understand that code and say, Wait, is that goodbye happening again? Is that same next week? And she said no, actually, two weeks from now is on my calendar.
Okay, let me listen to this one on the mind, or on the off camera, and you're not supposed to embarrass your daughter, you're supposed to understand that code and go and talk to the guy. It's okay for your girl to find a decent guy. That means you sent her out into the real world.
How many girls are dating? How many girls are relationships? How many girls I have friends on Facebook. This girl doesn't have any of that stuff. But there's a brother and he keeps his gay boys memorizing with
his parents. She knows his sister too. I think if she thinks it's a good match, she should be able to talk about it in code to who her father is Oh, man, he's an iron him. You mean?
Where's he gonna work at the house?
He's gonna work at the house and was at the house. Do
you think that's a good combination? Obviously, the logical conclusion to that is you have to get one of them.
But the one who said higher and he was saying, Yeah, Dad, come on, you know what the men are like in this society? What are we going to find it on a guy like that? And he is.
he's strong and honest. And by the way, from an Arabic grammar perspective, you know, when you have
somebody supposed to be natural for grammar geeks out here in Georgia? We don't I mean, you know, and but she made it very fun and naturally uncovered me. You know what I mean? She's very specific about him. A nobody strong like that guy. And nobody honest like that one. I mean him that and I mean him.
And she said it in one sense and just hired him. And her dad understands her code, because they understand each other. He doesn't say What do you mean?
He goes out to the living room. Check this father out. He is brilliant. He goes out to the living room, and he goes in the hoodie.
I want to marry one of my two daughters to you. Wow. That is a smart father who understands what it's like to raise girls in a non Muslim society. You see why I picked this up.
That's what it's like. And by the way, how many guys are married? How many guys are married? Oh sha Allah.
Listen, guys. If you think you have bad chances getting married, what kind of
interviewed, he had I killed somebody, I am hopeless.
I don't have another pair of clothes and the mother says after 10 minutes, why don't you go to one of my daughters?
I'm saying, Don't worry, there's hope. If
you get married with that interview, you hear you can't be that bad. And you can cross off and kill somebody.
And you're homeless.
Yeah, actually, you can marry a fugitive from the law was homeless. He can do that. So
now, what else did he say? He said,
You got to work for me for eight years. If you want to marry my daughter, you got to work for me for ages.
So you're gonna have to live with in laws.
That's embarrassing, right? In many Western cultures living here in Washington.
Real Man, if you none of you, me will be as mad as Moosa and he will put his father in law for years, some say 10.
hour removed humiliation from taking help from your in laws, who is going to humiliate anyone else for taking help from their in laws? Again, after I've made sure we know musanze account from his inbox? You see, you see the things we do, and we don't understand the work.
And he's looking out for himself. The father says, look, work for me eight years, maybe even 10? Why? Why did he say that? Well, you're homeless, but you're a good guy, I see potential in you. I will give you a job. But if I just give you a job, and I don't give you a home, how can I give you my daughter? You need a home to why don't you stay here? Stay here eight to 10 years. Why is that important? Because I have another daughter, that will give me time to get her marriage and somebody good.
He's taking care of his other daughter at the same time. He's looking at everything. And says, Look, why don't you work for me eight years well enough.
And if you could do 10, it's up to you. No pressure, you want to leave after a while. And it's not like you have to work eight years and then get married. This direct conversation. Right now.
You're honest guy, I trust you. If you say you will do it, I believe you will
be hard on you. And
you want to walk away from this and go back to being me. He's also really good salesman.
you'll find me good people. I'm good. I'm gonna take care of you. I'll be honest. I'm a good guy. Now who's talking? Who are the two people talking here?
The father in law and our son in law and who is directly in contact with the father in law? The wife, the wife gets to meet the features of the model. Did she have interaction with him? She did. She did supervised or unsupervised, unsupervised, because they both know their limits.
They both know their limits, right. So there's a lot of things that have to do with contemporary problems in our families that are being addressed to a lot of things. That is one of the biggest ones.
When we look for our sons and our daughters to get married, oh, first talk about our sons. When we look for our sons to get married. You know what we do? We get our mothers involved.
We get our mothers and our mothers love our sons. And our mothers love our sons so much that most, if not all on the planet. Good enough for our son. So one of the proposal columns This one's nose is too long. This one's eyes are too close to each other. This one's feeder kind of twisted. This one put the GI over yours you put up put it over here. This one's on didn't call me back in within two days. This one didn't say thank you quick enough when we went to their house, and other than that, oh my god.
This poor guy has gone through 10 proposals. And his mother's got a virtual rocket launcher for everyone.
Nobody's good enough for my boy. And your boy. I mean, you know, they say they're big homie. He goes on, right? They say they say a monkey to a mother looks like his mother who's like a gazelle.
diver looking lady. But you know, put to you and he's like,
so you're like you're looking for it. She's gotta be so quiet. You can't even see her. You know, she stands next to a wall. You just walk right by you won't even know she was there. You know, she's a little too brown your son like you can eat so dark.
There's nothing wrong with the garden. It's okay. For a good girl. But you know what we get our women involved on both sides. And you know what happens women have a lot of love for their own. And also they get agitated very quickly.
And very quickly, things go very bad. We will never talk to them again. Don't even say her name again.
What did you do?
To kill someone? Did it? No, no. I sent them this deep biscuits when they never sent back a card.
The Koran is teaching us if you want to have civil, rational, collected, clear, open, transparent conversation, who should be talking first first first son in law and father in law, everybody else should be talking. But this is the main conversation in busy culture they say about Korea. So the boy and the girl actually are not involved in the conversation, his parents and her fans are talking. And this is
about karma. Right? If they are pochi, then they shouldn't be getting married.
And then what do we do the day of the nikka, the day of the niqab, everybody's eating biryani, there's like, you know, the DJ is like playing all kinds of music. And then the Connie's have comes in and ladies put on the napkin over their head.
And then what happens? Then the father of the girl says, Yeah, the man is 100,000.
Same was like,
and when they talked about before, you know what?
It's okay. Don't even worry about it.
But the day of $100,000, and everybody's there before you're ready, you gotta sign the card Now, another jacking the situation and saying give this much bad. Listen, the first conversation they had was, listen, the man is going to be worked for eight years.
Be clear about the man from when the beginning, it's a corruption to hold it off to the end, it's corruption. It's corruptions and not let the men get involved in the conversation we're gonna get if you're old enough to get married, that means you're old enough to lead a household, which means you're old enough to lead this conversation.
You cannot just pass it off to your parents, your parents shouldn't be involved. But that doesn't mean you should be uninvolved. Oh, my mom does everything.
No, no, no, you're getting your diaper changes over here again. Now, you got to take control of the situation. On the other side, the girls side who should have clear direct open communication. It goes without saying mothers and daughters talk. It goes without saying who shouldn't really go out of their way to have clear communication, father and daughter. When we have these things sorted out, the father truly represents the will of his daughter, he clearly understands even her code, and the son can speak for himself, and they have clear open relationship, then you're going to have healthy marriages. When you don't have this, you have miscommunication, and you find out
because you were only talking to his parents not to him. You only saw a resume that says he's got a job. And he's from Hyderabad. That must be good enough.
You know, you just looked at a couple of requirements and you want
guidance. These stories are mentioned for a reason. They're mentioned for a reason. So he was with him last for eight years. You could do 10 it's up to you. I don't want to be hard on you. And what is a golden words
mean chronic words, timeless words, this is between you and me. So who's the nikka contract fundamentally between between who and whom? Between?
Between current and future where the between father and son in law, they should be talking? You're afraid to talk to your father in law because you're not man enough to get married here. So that means
you know, that's honestly that's what it is. These guys call me and say brother, I love this girl. What should I do? She don't tell me that. They say brother, I have a problem. I was like, What's her name?
And he says How did you know? I was like I've been around the block bro.
Let me guess. You were giving her that one.
And now you want to marry her. But you're too scared to tell her parents are giving him singles? Yes both. Because I have a solution for you. If you don't want to talk to her parents, they don't want to talk to your parents. I have a solution for you. Go to local pharmacy go to the baby section. They have baby bottles there get that get a can assimilate mix it with water well sit in the corner and suck on it until you grow.
Then when you are planning a nice man would call me back we'll talk okay.
Okay then fine just because we maybe don't talk about getting married then you're not ready. You're not ready. Now this was just some things I wanted to share with you about how living the stories of the right I'm not going to go further into this story. But I want to share with you my the most beautiful part of starry night now. That's the conclusion is the most beautiful part of story. I probably need 10 minutes for this. I don't think
so. Who was Moses
I was reading like a couple years ago, maybe a year now, I was reading just adorable.
So this will be
a car accident.
Best of all stories. So usually begins with the word customers.
And you get to number 28, which we did today season three of Moosa and the Sooners name itself is what
is there a connection between
I wonder but I left it, I didn't really ponder upon, I kept going. I reached number 40. So the movement also also soften
and soothe the movement has a fantastic passage, dealing with a friend of Musa who was one
the police chief was hiding a system or it's showing us this man. He was hiding until Pharaoh and ran out of love for Moosa and said the Rooney up to Moosa. Let me go Let me kill myself.
Now the only one backing up.
I don't even he's gone. So now open game. We're gonna tell you some. At that point, that same police chief who was sitting in the cabinet of the Federal, I can't hold my slam anymore. He got up. He stood up in the Parliament of at home and gave a speech about why he's Muslim. And he addressed the entire Parliament What do you think happened to him after he was done with that speech?
That speech is incredible. And it is excellent What?
So So number 40.
Now one of the things he said I fell off my chair. Literally I fell off my chair when I read it. One of our Java users who will come He is talking to the Parliament of the pharaohs and says remember use of he came to you to remember
and it was a Whoa.
The new usual
they remember who you saw and I thought there was a connection between the story about Husein the story about use of and even the Egyptian see a connection
and what's even more amazing is that
presented his message you know what he said?
happy about it. We never heard anything like this before liars the police you've got up and said remember who you serve. And remember when he died you said when you're alone
remember you said a lot we'll never send anybody like that again. Well he did he sent someone like user who is who moves on. So there's apparently a parallel so powerful between who and who uses that these Egyptians even science. So I said I gotta go look forward again. So I decided to do a comparison for myself I didn't find this anywhere. So I decided to do a comparison for myself. Which means sort of use of as
soon as you so begins with a boy sort of process begins with a board. User begins with a boy who is being shown by his father, through the process begins with a boy who's being shown by his mother sort of useful begins with a boy who has a father is afraid of not being separated, afraid of being separated from his boy.
cousins begins with a boy and the mother is afraid of being separated from her boy.
The boy is separated so the boy is separated. So what use of the boy has separated and ends up in water. The reality
is the baby underwear in water causes the boy is separate. So to use, the boy is separated because of his older siblings.
It is because of his older siblings the separation happened. So contrast this the reunion happens because of the older siblings. So abuse of this child is in the water but miraculously, not only rescued, taken to a castle in Egypt, it's full of useful pseudo causes. This boy ends up in a castle in Egypt, sort of user the husband retrieves the boy.
The wife retrieves the boy sort of use of The wife takes the boy goes to the husband, the wife. The husband takes the boy the minister took the wife took him to the wife,
the husband takes him to the evil wife. You see her evil later. It says as a foreigner.
Maybe he could benefit us We might even take him as our own child. Susan casas the mother goes to
The wife goes to the husband and says identically.
Maybe he could benefit us, we can take him as our own child. When he's raised in an Egyptian castle, the other is raised in an Egyptian castle. One is raised as a servant who's raised as a servant. user, one is raised as a prince who's raising the Prince husa. One is raised. And when he was raised a lot gave him wisdom and knowledge, I think that will hook one
When he reached teenage years, then we gave him wisdom and knowledge. And that's how we compensate people who excel. So when he reached mature age, when his teenage years westerleigh elimination, he got strong like the bark of a tree, we gave him wisdom and knowledge. And that's how we reward the montseny new users from the mauceri users from the montseny. And already unlike Oh, and should I keep going,
but this is a lot. So I just like to keep going.
I go further. And I find Busan is
the moment that he had wisdom, maturity, young men in the very next hire, he was thrown into fitna very next time. So two causes are described here wisdom, maturity knowledge. Si. Very next time he was thrown into beta users trouble came indoors.
nuisance trouble came outdoors. Yeah, both of them were private.
They both have privacy.
Use Case use case. The criminal was a woman. muzzles case the criminal was a man use case he actually didn't do anything wrong. musanze case he actually ended up doing something wrong use case he did nothing wrong but still went to jail.
nooses case, he did something wrong, but still got away.
Still got away, huh.
Use Case, he's in he's away. He's away. And years later he comes back.
And years later, he comes back Yousuf comes back to save the kingdom.
Use of comes back to what save the kingdom Moosa comes back to life, destroy the kingdom use of comes back to prove his innocence. Moosa comes back to admit that he's guilty.
He came to a court in a minute is noting, here's even cooler stuff.
Use a funny his salon story tells you how a man and a woman should not come together.
You story tells you how a man and a woman should not come together in user stories.
How a man or woman should come to
one after another after another after another. The list keeps going. I compiled like 53
I'm actually gonna write a book on this.
And you know why? You know why? Because when I retire, then I look back and sort of use it and
I tell the best stories. And I say yep, you you totally do. I've never seen anything like that.
The story of use of began outside of Egypt and ended inside Egypt. The story of Musa began inside Egypt and ended outside Egypt.
It is incredible,
Did this stuff. It just you know, I wish I was doing this full time. Honestly, I wish all I was doing was studying quantum teaching. That's my dream in life is to do that. In these few minutes that I have with you. If you don't mind. I'll take seven minutes. Is that okay? with everybody? I think
it is seven minutes that
makes me nervous when you raise hands. You take intervention that you're trying to take with
you. Okay? So nothing. Okay, so listen,
I handed it off. Last year, I had the blessing of being able to make touch with my wife. And it was really difficult because we have six children and then the strength and gave us the strength to be able to do so. And I'm eternally grateful to have that incredible opportunity. When I came back from hush hush is a real eye opener, you know, for many reasons. It makes you think about how you're spending your life, what you're doing with your life, how you should be prioritizing things like that, right? So I've had a lot of kind of moments of clarity and courage. And as a result, I've changed some of the things I do with my life and how I spend my time and what I think I can do.
Personally all all humility aside. Only abilities I personally believe that the Lord has blessed me with teachers and blessings.
with colleagues and people in my organization, and put us in a position to do a lot of good, and to benefit a lot of people, and honestly, I believe we're able to not just impact Muslims in, first of all the US, you know, specifically in Dallas, the city where I live, but rather the entire United States that I started thinking more broadly, across North America, even Canada, right. So you see, see me here too now. But then as I traveled more, I noticed that the services we're trying to provide are equally relevant in places like Qatar, and Bahrain, and Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and Malaysia, and Singapore, and Pakistan, and India and Bangladesh, and Kenya, and you name it, you
name it. We have people that are downloading our podcasts and Philistine and Syria to It's nuts. Because the world is shifting towards English. It's shifting, it's just that's unnatural is a mobilization, even in the Arab world. And I was in Qatar for like, a few days. I didn't, I only got to speak in Arabic one time I had to force the conversation. Everybody is comfortable in English. It's really strange. It's happening even in the Arab world, in the heart of the Arab world, this is happening. So an education of Islamic English has become ever more important. Personally, I think we are in a position because of some experiments we run. I want to tell you two experiments that have
succeeded. The first experiment was, can we teach solid Arabic in America? Can we teach solid Arabic in America in the course of nine months, by the time a student graduates and they come in just reading the Koran, no comprehension. By the time they come out, they can engage a scholar in Arabic conversation fluidly. My album to Australian caravans, will Hanukkah when the hurricane sorry, every Holocaust in the right place, they can read the text, they can dramatically analyze what went on, they can understand the nuances of language from the Arabic perspective and have a lifelong journey of learning in the Arabic language with a solid degree of proficiency. It was just a dream. And
people laughed at it. People said, You can't learn Arabic In America, you got to go to the Arab world. You got to go, you know, under a tree somewhere. And it was not a palm tree, you're not really gonna learn Arabic. And I said, Yeah, we're gonna do it in Texas.
So we started the dream program, and it was just a concept. But three years have gone three, three batches of students have graduated 200 people have graduated from the program.
Last year's graduates, this is our fourth year and a half of the students a third week, just the third week. Last year's graduates, you know what they're doing for me, one of them is extracting notes from it and empathizing to find this on a Sunday night. They're translating books from Arabic into English. They're transcribing lectures and converting them into English. They're doing the research for me, some of them have actually gone to study Islamic universities to have my graduates from last year Mashallah, when two Islamic universities International Islamic University, Malaysia, after nine months of study with me, husband and wife, they ended up in Malaysia, they have six
levels of Arabic in Malaysia before you join the Arabic shehryar program
entirely in Arabic, okay, and they have six levels, and they teach the six levels in two years. These were not the top of the class, they were upper middle. In my batch, they went and they passed five out of six levels. And the sixth level takes six months. They're finishing it in one month, and they're moving into the CDL program. What takes two years there in nine months, at 110 months? They did, I am super proud of what they're accomplishing. But it makes me realize something, this curriculum works. It works. Something is working perfectly. For my computer like it's working. I'm seeing the results in front of my eyes. You know, my graduates are my teacher's assistants. I don't
hire teachers from the outside. I only take my graduates and make them teachers. And a lot of them are not better teachers than I am they've taken my stuff and perfected. Really, I'm so proud of them. So proud of them. But why am I telling you all of this, because I think we're onto something that should not remain in Dallas, I think it can become a worldwide phenomenon. I think we can, we can replicate that curriculum all over the world to meet people's schedules, mothers should have a daytime Arabic program. That's part time that works around their schedule, professionals should have an evening program, even when men and women should have an evening program that can work around
their schedule a couple of days a week, and they stick to a curriculum and train teachers that know how to get results. The point is standards aren't there, right? So as a result of all of these things, this is on the Arabic side. I haven't even talked about Quran yet. This was the Arabic experiment, then there's no point on experiment, right? The Arabic experiment is going on this year. And I'm actually recording the entire curriculum. That is
the whole thing. And I thought so you're gonna watch 1000s of hours of video, but so that teachers I can train teachers to go anywhere in the world and launch those programs and leverage the video material to support where students may be anywhere so they have access to their teacher, but they also have access to my word. For the same lessons. For all of those exercises all of the activities. We're making a meticulous curriculum, by the unit find the exercise by the answer key
With an extensive Arabic curriculum,
that's the that's the intention. It's working in Dallas, why not make it all over the world, including Toronto, including Mississauga, why not.
So this is a plan within the next two years to be able to launch this. And for that 100, I have a few students from Canada this year
so. But I want to see more students from Canada in that particular program, because they will be my future teachers. I want to get the best of you the most talented teachers, and then create local initiatives. That's on the one side, on the other hand, is I think even a more important initiative. This is Arabic and Arabic is a long term thing. My vision is we should reach a point where the average Muslim understands the Quran, when they really hear.
This being said, that's my intention for the Arabic interview, I think within a decade, we can get it. I honestly think the second goal I have personally, is to facilitate the learning of the commodity.
Today, I shared the story of with you, and I'm almost sure that you haven't heard it like this before. I don't know that for sure. But I'm pretty confident that many of you have never heard it like this before. The thing of it is, I spent a lot of time trying to understand that there are people who understand it a lot better than I do. I have only just scratched the surface. But the thing that I feel I have
a concern to teach this to someone like a child.
Like if I if my child can understand me, anybody can understand. I want to create the education that for a first level that enables
first, then when you get a little bit more Arabic, and you get more advanced, you can study the capacity yourself in more depth studies yourself. But for the vast majority of Muslims, what do they need? They need simple, they need straightforward, something they can get right away. That's what they need. Right? So putting those resources together, I decided to dedicate more of my time not traveling, but staying home and finishing those works, those recording those videos, those lectures on the entire process, and to make them a permanent resource to follow. And then even further that resource because what I'm planning on doing in the future, you guys need to go
and study stuff. I'm gonna, I'm gonna start a talk show. I'm going to start an entire like lineup TV programs, we're gonna go all out, we're gonna make the Daily Show look bad.
Honestly, that's what intention is. The human needs good media, not just lectures, lectures are important. They have their place. What are these solid media? We need reports from all over the world for good efforts when Muslims are happening. We want to interview I want to interview people like young people that are doing fantastic in their fields, that are accomplishing something that is totally unique condition. We want to hear these inspirational stories, the old one needs a positive attitude. It's a desperate need. All we hear in the news is negative. And I feel like we're in a position of heading that direction. But all of that is going to be in one
