Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dearest brothers and sisters in Islam welcome to episode number 19 moments with the Quran. In today's episode I take you back to sort of took care of but this time to the story of Musa alayhis salaam and his journey to find Hitler and his time with him. And this is the third famous story in Surah. Two Kevin is famous because you won't find this part of the life of Musa alayhis salaam in any other portion of the Quran that tells us about the life of Musa alayhis salaam. So Musa alayhis salam, he says to his helper to this boy that was helping him and the scholars of tafsir mentioned that his name was you shall be known who later on became a
prophet. Musa says to him that I'm going to go on this journey until I get to the place where the seas meet, to basically to find the header of this journey to find the header, even if it takes me decades. Subhan Allah, right. So he's going on a journey to seek knowledge. And he's announcing at the beginning. I'm not going to give up even if it takes decades. And then when we look at the norm of the story, we find two words famously repeated throughout the story number one from palapa and number two Saba, right?
Let's start with server because as musala he said I'm finally reaches critter and he asked her if he can be a companion to him for a while to learn from the mercy that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him that knowledge that Allah subhanho wa Taala taught him hindrances to Moosa in Nicoletta stuffy, Amalia Saba, you will you will, you will, you will never, ever be able to be patient with me. Right?
The way I teach requires students who are extremely patient and you won't be able to manage almost. Now this doesn't mean Moosa wasn't the patient person, it doesn't mean in any way or form. He wasn't a matter of perseverance. proof of this isn't the fact that he told his helper I will search for hidden even if it takes me decades, nobody does this, except if they are people have patience and perseverance. But don't no doubt hit them knows that Musa alayhis salam is someone taught by Allah, and he has knowledge that from the outset, what I will be doing is something he knows to be wrong. Right? So he will question what I'm doing especially to being a prophet of Allah, because he doesn't
know the context behind why I am doing what I'm doing. So he's going to question me, and as a result, on my standards, he won't be able to be patient. So he repeats this to Musa and lo and behold, that's what happened when Hitler made a hole in the boat or he carried on doing his other tasks that Allah informed him to do Moosa immediately would question and you know, question the actions of Hitler and Hitler would say, Did I not tell you you will not be able to be patient did not inform you that you will not be able to be patient and so on and so forth. So we find this theme reoccurring throughout the topic of patients, also from Tanaka throughout the story, a lot of
mentions from palaka that from palapa, meaning they went on, they moved on along the way after he did something and Mussa question that I told him, why did you question after that he eventually moved on. But it's interesting that Allah subhanho wa Taala uses this term Fung balaka. In the law, this concept of taking off this concept of being this concept that is that denotes a person of action, a person of not just movement, but transformative movement, right? It's a movement that creates results. So hello. And, you know, we read the sort of week in and week out and through reading these words week in and week out. Our minds are being nurtured. We have been nurtured to
being people of productivity through constantly reading from palaka from palapa from palata. And also people have patience and perseverance through constant hearing the word solver solver solver throughout the story, brothers and sisters in Islam. We learn from the story amongst the other lessons there's so many lessons in the story and no doubt the most important lesson is how knowledge is the basis of quantum progress right and quantum development of the oma and movement of the oma from weakness to strength because after the story of Musa comes the story of Carmen and he was a man of resources and it's a story of resources and power. Right That's the great lesson inshallah we can
take that in in another episode. But in terms of just the day to day running of our lives, we all you know, especially in Roma in in months like Ramadan, we trying to bring in good habits and get rid of bad habits and the process
requires and we learned this from the story of Musa it requires
movement in a transformative way, this concept of interlock, and it also requires patience, a lot of the time Subhanallah we find people giving up, they failed to bring this good habit into the life after a day or after a week. So I'm going to give up it's not for me. They failed to get rid of this bad habit after a day or after a week so they give up what can I do? This is who I am. They start believing
The values of Pamela they give up to the extent that they stop valuing themselves. This is dangerous brothers and sisters in Islam. And it goes against the way the Quran nurtures us the way certain niches and Allah subhanho wa Taala makes us read it weekly, so that if we ever have this defeatist attitude, we become motivated again, reignited re inspired to push on to give ourselves the value that we deserve, that we can achieve whatever we want to achieve. We just got to move progressively transformative Lee and never ever give up. perseverance and patience. A quick lesson from today's moment from the third famous story of Sudoku Caffe until another moment, salaamu alaykum
