Other, and the evil punishment took the people off Iran. I want you to think about this believing that this man was a believer, he hid his faith for a while he started calling people towards the truth use his platform for something good. What are you doing with the platform that you have? What are you doing with the situations, the networks, the context of social media that you have? Are you utilizing that position? That blessing that privilege for something beneficial to call people towards something good to stop people from doing the wrong thing? Or are you wasting an opportunity? Are you wasting potential May Allah subhanaw taala make us grateful for every position, every

00:05:35--> 00:06:13

platform, every opportunity that we have the people of fit on? The those who continue to follow fit around and ignore Prophet Musa the salam, they saw sign after sign after sign after sign, and all of these signs from Allah subhanaw taala, they rejected them due to their arrogance. Finally, they chase Musa Ali Salam and the few followers, the believers that were with him, they chase them, and they're basically trapped, you have the red sea behind you and the enemy in front of you. And Allah subhanaw taala tells us about the miracle that took place with the splitting of the sea. I want you to imagine seeing this yourself. Imagine you're watching as a third party. And you have a group of

00:06:13--> 00:06:36

people with a messenger who showed them all the signs and proofs that they needed that this was truly a messenger of God, every miracle you can imagine, though, that was mentioned. Imagine you saw it as well. Now the sea is splitting. And he goes through that they're going through the split, see they're going through the Red Sea. And right behind them. You have Iran and the arrogance followers, those who are obeying fit on blindly

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

choosing to pursue and kill.

00:06:40--> 00:07:21

What kind of worldview how much arrogance must you have for you to see the sea splitting for a man who showed you that he was truly a messenger of God and still trying to chase him to kill him? How arrogant must a person be? May Allah subhanaw taala protect us. They chase down Musa Ali Salaam and the believers and of course they got out safely the believers and Madonna and his followers dropped his army drowned. And as he's drowning, then finally he tries to proclaim that he believes in the same Lord as Benny straw eat but by then it is truly May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us humility and allow us to accept the signs that are in our lives and the signs within us as well before it is

00:07:21--> 00:07:29

too late. Accept the signs of change today because tomorrow is not guaranteed. And they lost the panel Tada. Forgive us for all of our shortcomings. Llama me
