spinarak mala hain hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Karim? quite early he will be he ultramarine you know taco wahaca to a party he will attend a la one to Muslim on yeah you know so taco Bakula de la Kakuma knifes in lakita Well hello come in Hello jaha well that's the mean humare john and Kathy are on one Isa, what's up Allah Allah DITA ser una de he will not harm in the LA Cana la Kumara Kiba yo you Ella Dena mano topo La La pulu colons de the use of the American way of La come vinoba come woman, nuclear helado seudah, who forgot the faza fosun alima from my bad your brothers and sisters, if any of you have ever encountered a fear of flying, there's something

00:00:50--> 00:00:56

very interesting about the particular phobia that some have with being in an airplane.

00:00:57--> 00:01:44

And no matter what statistics you give to someone about how safe it is to fly, if someone has an apprehension, you can tell them you're more likely to be hit by a car while riding your bike, you're more likely to die by a furniture fall, you're more likely to die by this to die by that the apprehension is still very strong. And one of the reasons for that is that there's a psychology to it of not being able to control your own fate. When you're in a plane, and you're in mid air. And the turbulence starts. And I'm sure many of us have experienced it where you're watching a movie or you're reading something or you're talking to someone and then as soon as the plane starts to shake,

00:01:44--> 00:02:03

everyone starts to make sure everything gets very tense, except for the experienced fliers that have been on there all the time. But the turbulence causes a great sense of apprehension. And even if you try to go through the statistics in your head and say, Well, you know, this happens all the time. It's okay, everything's gonna be fine.

00:02:05--> 00:02:13

Most people who fly frequently could tell you that they've experienced a moment where they thought this turbulence was gonna lead to a plane accident that it was going to crash this time.

00:02:14--> 00:03:09

Now why is this significant or relevant to what we're talking about with Moosa today? His setup, and Allah Subhana, which are Allah parting the seas for him and making a way out for him? I want you to think about Musa alayhis salam in context of what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to say mightly la manager wala manda mainecare illa, Allah O Allah, there is no refuge and no escape from you except to you. Manager is a place of refuge. Manda is one who delivers, there is no refuge and no delivery from you except to you Allah. There is no safety, no stability, no shelter to be found, except by going back to you, Oh Allah. And many times it's in our heads that we have these

00:03:09--> 00:03:58

imaginary sources of strength and stability that actually are not sources of stability in our lives. And somehow to law. It doesn't just start with musante said I'm walking through the seas. Look at what Allah tells the mother of musante his son amore inspires to the mother of musante said I'm either 50 alaihe if you're worried about him, that he phillium then put them in the Nile river which goes against all logic with her at that moment. If you're worried about your baby, put him in the river and Allah subhana wa tada will deliver him, Allah subhana wa tada will take care of him. musante has learned very early on that the stuff that he had, he had to let it go to find his

00:03:58--> 00:04:31

support only in Allah Subhana who it's out of that it wasn't the staff that he was leaning on that it was Allah subhanho wa Taala giving him strength and moosari Islam understood that this staff was just a means by which Allah subhana wa tada opens things up. And I want you to think about that moment when he splits the seas by the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala and walks through it and Musashi Salaam is on lands with his people walking between the ocean or the sea split into two and standing like mountains there.

00:04:32--> 00:04:57

And musar Islam and as people walk through it and I want you to remember Newell, alayhis salaam and his son, newer as the floods are coming down and things are filling up. And as he is moving away, he sees his son staying back and what is his son say? Sal, we illegible y'all see me? Nah, I'm gonna stay on this mountain. And it will protect me from the water.

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

All of this stuff

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

Brothers and sisters is to teach us a lesson. That stability comes from obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala that the firm ground that we are upon is the obedience to Allah subhana wa tada is the righteousness that we get and attain through that obedience and then the reward of that righteousness of Sabbath of firmness and stability. So if you run away from something, run to Allah subhana wa tada and if you are afraid of something, seek refuge only in Allah. And if you are seeking victory, then do as Allah subhana wa tada commands and do not be diluted by the things that are around us, that seem to be sources of strength and stability, but all they are are tools from

00:05:45--> 00:06:28

Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's why your brothers and sisters on the Day of Judgment, when the skies are ripped open, when the seas start to rebel, you know, they said two hurricanes coming at the same time. Right? never happened before when the seas burst when when nature starts to give in. And what is what are the people say on the day of judgment? Well, Carnival in Santa Monica, the ground starts to shake and they say wait a minute. He does a lot of Zonda things are shaking, and it's what's going on here. It's not supposed to be this way. And your brothers and sisters in times of Agile in times of strange things, and things that are supernatural and things that don't make

00:06:28--> 00:06:38

sense. All of this also teaches us to seek our strength in the one who is not moved by his creation in Allah subhanho wa Taala through it all.

00:06:39--> 00:07:20

Whether you are in the air or whether you are in the water, or whether you're on firm ground, or whether you're the one in the driver's seat or not. The reality is that you're always a passenger. The reality is that you are always vulnerable and floating mid air in the middle of water and you need a loss of Hannah hotel to deliver you. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to deliver us, always to him We ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us and people that seek refuge seek our cure, seek our stability only in Him and to never allow us to find strength outside of him that would dilute us and only expose itself when it's too late. We asked Allah subhana wa tada to strengthen us with this

00:07:20--> 00:07:37

revelation to give us aid as he gave aid to mozartian salaam to give us always ease after hardship and to allow us to find the reward that he has promised for all of his prophets. Allah amin aku Cody Hello stuff a lot. You welcome Lisa and was Simeon festa fiddle in a hula for him.
