Juz’ 20: An-Naml 60-93 – Al-‘Ankabut 1-44
And he entered the city masala salon. When he had reached full strength he was mentally mature. He entered the city at a time of inattention by its people, and found there in two men fighting one from his faction, meaning the bunny is so ill, and one from among his enemy, meaning the people of our own. And the one from his faction called for help to him against the one from his enemy. So musar this center helped him and in that he struck the other person, and unintentionally killed him. This shows the strength of musar Listen, I'm so strong he was that he just gave him one blow and the other many died. So Mossad is Sam said, this is from the work of shave pawn. This is from the work
of champion fighting and killing. This is from the work of shavonne Indeed, he is a manifest misleading enemy.
What does this mean that when people are fighting, then participating in that fight, and in that process, killing one another, this is whose work chiffons work when people are fighting, then what is it that we need to do solve the problem, solve that fight, not that we start taking sides immediately, and start beating each other up because this will lead to more violence. So mozzarella is Santa, because he was a Merson, he liked helping people over here, he was called. And over here we see first of all, so who first the author is the author is to really call out in in desperation, like, you know, really desperately calling out for help, that if you don't help me, I'm gonna die.
So musar listener, he just responded to him. He helped him and in defending him, he hit the other men. And when he hit him once that men died, color A B enable him to neph c musala. Sam said, My Lord, indeed I have wronged myself fell fiddly, so forgive me. What happened for love for Allah who and Allah forgive him in the huella photo Rahim. Indeed he is forgiving, and merciful. This. This is true regret, that when a person makes a mistake, and it's an accident, could be a really big mistake, like murdering someone accidentally realizing that, my Lord, I have done wrong against myself, I need your forgiveness. So you forgive me, and I love forgive him.
We learned that once I needed to learn more on who he sat on his ride his mount, and when he put his foot in the stirrup as he was getting on, he said, Bismillah when he sat on the back of the animal, he said, Alhamdulillah meaning when he said then he said Al Hamdulillah so as he was getting up Bismillah once he said Alhamdulillah and then he said Subhana Allah the Sahaba Elena had Omar Khan Allahu makueni, or in either of beaner lemon collarbone. And then he said Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar superamerica in Neelam to nuptse folfiri Li, for in the who lay off euro Nova ala and
that perfect Are you Oh Allah, I have wronged myself. So forgive me for indeed none forgive sins except you. And then I did have the law on who he left. So somebody who was there with him, they asked him, Are they not the lower? No, why did you do that to me, meaning, why did you laugh? He said I only did when I saw the prophets. Allah said I'm doing. I saw him getting on his ride like this. And he said these words the exact words that I have set. And then once he said this door, he smiled. So I also asked him, you know, sutala Why are you smiling? Why are you laughing? And he replied, that your Lord most high is pleased with his servant when he says it'll fiddly the newbie
when a servant says Oh my Lord, forgive me my sins, then Allah is pleased with him. He knows that no one forgives sins except Him. And when a servant says that realizing that only a login forgive my sins, then Allah is amazed at that, and he becomes happy with the servant. In another Hadees we learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Allah is amazed at his servant, when he says La Ilaha Illa and in the column to nuptse fogal, fiddly Luna will be in the Julio Pharaoh de Nova Illa and that there is no god but you Allah, I have wronged myself. So forgive me my sins for non forgive sins except you. Allah says My servant has known that his Lord can forgive him and he can also
punish him. My servant has known that so mozzarella Salaam, his daughter over here from Philly, oh, my lord in Neelam to Neff, CFO, fatally and this is such a beautiful thing that we learned from here any time a mistake happens
This is not a small mistake killing someone. It was an accident. It was unintentional, but it happened. And many times we also make mistakes unintentionally. unintentionally. So what should be done over there? We should get angry with ourselves and get depressed and sad. Yes, we are sad. Yes, we do get angry with ourselves. But what we truly need to do is seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala lighten your heart by seeking a lust forgiveness for love for Allah Who am look at how quickly the forgiveness game fell off Allah who corner a baby mama and I'm Talia, felon. akuna here on lil mo dreamy. He said, Oh my Lord, for the favor that you bestowed upon me. I will never be an
assistant to the criminals.
That Allah subhanaw taala concealed his sin nobody found out. Nobody found out. So what happened? Masada said I said oh my lord, you concealed my sin. So I will never ever help the criminals. Again, this is the Oba that a person seeks forgiveness for what he did. And then he promises never to do it again.
But what happens when you promise that you will never repeat the mistake? Allah subhanaw taala will put you in that situation and test you to see what you're going to do. So musasa was also tested over here. And he became inside the city fearful and anticipating exposure, he was afraid that people will find out when suddenly the one who sought his help the previous day, cried out to him once again. Now he was fighting another guy. And this time he called out to Musa yes the free who, right? Yes, the three who Yes. It's basically to scream out for help. He was creaming making the scene. mozzarella Sam said to him indeed you are an evident persistent deviator. What's wrong with
you? Again, you're fighting. Yesterday you were fighting somebody else today you're fighting somebody else. What are you doing? And when he wanted to strike the one who was an enemy to both of them, he said meaning the man who called Mossad Islam for help who was fighting the previous day in this day again, he said almost do you intend to kill me as you killed someone yesterday? So you see what happened. musasa helped him the day before. And now what is he doing? He's exposing musar listener. You only want to be a tyrant in the land and do not want to be of the vendors. He's making musasa look so bad. And like this, the news spread immediately. And a man came from the farthest end
of the city running. He said almost indeed the eminent ones being the leaders. They are conferring over you intending to kill you. So leave the city. Indeed, if you have the sincere advisors just run, go. They're coming to get to you and they're going to kill you. So if you want to stay alive, just leave some musar Listen, I'm left the city fearful. And anticipating apprehension he was afraid he didn't know what was going on that they might come after him. Color of Pina Dini, him in a coma. lolly me. He said My Lord saved me from the wrongdoing people. Because this was an accident. It wasn't deliberate that mazarin is surrounded this, right. But they weren't willing to even overlook
mazarin Instagrams mistake. Because you see musala ceram he was from the bunny is for you. And he was Yes, he was raised in the house of our own. But you could imagine that when someone is not from the family, even if he has lived in that family, is he treated differently?
Oh, yeah. He's treated differently. So mozzarella, Sam, yes, his life was saved because he grew up in the house of your own but he lived through a lot of bias of animosity, jealousy, he faced it a lot. Like there are many stories we learn about fear our own trying to harm loose our listener. Like for example, it is said that at one point he, you know, he let loose artists and as when he was still a child, put coal in his mouth and because of that muscle, his name couldn't speak clearly.
Right? So I mean, it's a story alohar them if it's true or not. But what these stories suggest is that musasa even though he grew up in the house of Iran, he wasn't raised as a prince. He wasn't he was always treated differently. And now this was the chance where they could get rid of Masada Sena
You understand? So this is why Masada saddam, he said a lot been a dream in a coma. I mean, you see over here musar Listen, I was talking to Allah again. He made a mistake. He asked a lot of forgiveness. Allah covered his mistake. He said, oh my lord, I'm never going to do this again. Now that he's running to save his life, he says, Oh my Lord, You saved me. You protect me. Those who love Allah, they talk to Allah at every step. They're talking to their Lord. And when he directed himself toward Meridian, he said, perhaps my Lord will guide me. You see now the trust is upon who Allah
penultimate perhaps my Lord will guide me to the sound wave some way someplace some destination, I don't know where but Allah is going to take me somewhere, though a call on Allah. And when he came to the well of Meridian, he found there a crowd of people watering their flocks. And he found aside from them to women driving back their flocks. He said, What is your circumstance? Meaning How come you're keeping your animals away from the water? Why won't you let them go and drink? And how come you're here anyway? You see mozzarella Cena? Is he in trouble himself? Right now? Is he? Yes, he is. Does he have money with him? Probably not. Because he had to leave within moments. He just left and
ran to save his life. What did he have with him? Hardly anything. Now in a situation like this, when we ourselves are needy, do we think about the need of other people? No, we generally don't. What distinguishes a Morrison is the fact that even when he is needy, he is concerned about the need of others. Like we learned the other day, that the person who is not grateful for little, he cannot be grateful for a lot. So a person who cannot avail small opportunities, then he cannot avail big opportunities either. So what happened over here musar Listen, MCs, something unusual over here. So he gets up and he goes to them. And he asks them, that what's going on? How come you're not watching
your animals. They said we do not water until the shepherds leave. And our father is an old man. In other words, we don't go in the midst of men. In order to water our animals. We wait for these shepherds to go when they're gone. Then we take our animals to the waterhole so that they can drink. And we have to do this because our father is an old man and he cannot do it himself. What do we see over here that the women are working in the field of men aren't there they are. However, they are working without mixing with the men. This is something we need to remember, no matter where we are working, no matter where we are. Even if we go shopping. Alright, even if we are going to school,
university, workplace, wherever it is, whatever kind of work it is.
As long as it's halal, it's fine. But what we need to make sure what we really need to be careful about is not mixing with the men. Not mixing with the men means that when there is a man, you don't know who's doing something, and you need to do the same work, don't go and stand right next to him so that by accident, you fall into him and or he falls into you know,
keep your distance maintain your distance, don't mix with them. First of all, Allahumma Susana sallam, he didn't say, Okay, and then he just went back and sat down. No, he didn't just hear out their problem. Because what's the point of hearing out somebody's problem? If you're not going to help them, he's helping them so he watered their flocks for them. Why? Because if they waited for the shepherds to leave, then what would happen the watering hole would be empty. By the time their turn what come there would hardly be any water left. All right. So what happened musar listen and water their flocks for them. Then he went back to the shade. And he said little bee in the Lima and
Zelda Ella Yemen Hayden fucky Oh my Lord, indeed I am for whatever good you would send down to me in the notice over here he does not ask the girls for compensation.
He doesn't say Okay, can you give me one cheap? No, he only asks Allah when a person is alone and no one can help him. No one. Then calling upon Allah in this situation brings a delight that is unmatched.
You see, sometimes you are put in a situation where you are You alone are suffering from your problem. No one can share that problem with you. You cannot even reach out to somebody for help.
And even if you can, nobody can help you. Nobody can. So at that time when you call upon Allah
because musasa is all alone here right? Who is he calling upon Allah, then this is something that brings comfort and delight and joy that nothing else brings. So be grateful to Allah for these moments, when every suburb is cut off, and you are left to yourself to call upon Allah alone.
And masala Sam he called upon Allah Look at the beautiful be in me, Lima and Zelda la I'm in hiding. Yeah, Allah, I am needy. He's showing you
I'm fucking I'm desperate for anything, any help that you send my way.
He's not asking the girls for compensation. No, he's asking Allah for compensation. And what happened? Allah subhanaw taala immediately responded to him, this door will be in nilima and delta even heightened for free. So many times we also make it.
And many times people make it, especially if they're looking for a spouse. And they make it over and over and over and over again. But what happens, we see that our daughters are not accepted. How can moosari Sometimes though, I was accepted over here because it was from the heart, he really truly begged Allah. And he really showed that you're Allah I need from you. I don't need benefit from people. And we see over here that another reason why his daughter is accepted is because in his state of neediness, he didn't forget the people around him. He saw people in need, if he could help them, he helped them and when he helped them, a lot helped him in a Hardee's. We learned that the
Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Whoever removes a worldly grief from a believer, Allah would remove from him, one of the grapes of the Day of Resurrection. And whoever alleviates the need of a needy person, Allah will alleviate his needs in this world and the Hereafter, whoever shields or hides the sins of a Muslim than Allah will shield him in this world, and the hereafter, and Allah who will aid his slave, so long as he aids his brother, so long as he aids his brother. So when we need help from Allah, what do we need to do? start helping those who are around us. And don't wait for others to call us for help. No, looking at other people, take interest in them, and see, what help do they
need? Because sometimes we say, oh, how come you never asked me? Well, don't you know what they're going through?
Right? I mean, later on, we ask people, oh, if you were in need, how come you didn't ask me? Well, the fact is that once you know that somebody is going through a particular situation, you see them, it's quite obvious they need help. Don't wait for them to call. Don't wait for them to ask, be good to others, show them mercy and Allah will show mercy in return to you. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said men have been in our men have the best deeds, is to put a smile on the face of a believer
to put a smile on the face of a believer to pay off his debt to fulfill some of his needs, or remove some hardship from him. So if we want our problems to go away, then what do we need to do help remove the problems of other people. Then one of the two women came to him walking with shyness.
One of the girls came how walking with shyness, because China's is from a man. You see the prophets of Allah, even they were the most shy of all people, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam it is described. And that's the dilemma and who said that he was a very shy person, very shy person. She said, Indeed, my father invites you that he may reward you for having watered for us. He wants to pay you. Now, the fact is that musala said, I'm never really asked for a payment. But this family was also very, you can say dignified that they didn't take this help for free. Right? They wanted to pay back. So when he came to him, and related to him the story, he said, fear not. You have escaped from
the wrongdoing, people, meaning Don't worry, no one will come after you over here. You're safe. This is how you help somebody. So the father of those two girls, he's helping most artists and I'm how, firstly, he's comforting him. How? That before offering any food or payment, right? or anything else? What is he doing? He is saying comforting words to him.
And this is what people need the most comforting words kind words, empathy, this is what they want. That at least you understand my situation. So you see over here that the father of those two girls is comforting musar listener, fear not. You have escaped from the wrongdoing, people. No one's going to come here after you. One of the women said Oh, my father hire him. Meaning he's got no place to go. And he's all by himself. Why don't you hire him? Indeed, the best one you can hire is the strong and the trustworthy, meaning he's good at what he does. And he's also trustworthy, he's reliable, because he didn't run off with the flock. Right? When he walked out the flock for us, he returned
the animals to us. He didn't take them away. So he's trustworthy. So the father said Indeed, I wish to wed you wanted
my two daughters, he said this to musar. And s&m on the condition that you serve me for eight years. Because think about it. Now, if he's going to keep most artists and I'm in his house, if he's going to hire him, definitely, there is going to be interaction between him and his daughters. So why would he keep a young man in his house when he had two young girls? You understand? Why would he do that? And this is something that we need to remember also, that sometimes we have relatives or certain friends staying in the house while we have adult children. All right. And then there are also non Muslim, the guests are non Muslim. I mean, if it's just for a day or two, that's a
different story. But for a long term, this is something that's not appropriate. Right? It's not appropriate. So we see the wisdom of this man over here, that he says you can marry one of my two daughters, and yes, you don't have to give her any more hope. All right, the mother will be that you have to work for me for eight years, we will hire you for eight years. But if you complete 10, it will be as a favor from you. And I do not wish to put you in difficulty. I'm not forcing you. It's totally up to you. But if you do choose to stay with us, then you will find me if Allah wills from among the righteous, we will have a good time. masala Salaam said that is established between me and
you. Whichever of the two terms I complete, there is no injustice to me. And Allah over what we say is witness, meaning I agree. We'll see if I do eight years or 10 years. Now what we see in this part of the story is really the manhood of musasa.
His character that Firstly, the fact that he protected he helped the women,
even though they were complete strangers, but the fact that he went forward and help the women he didn't just leave the women to their work. He's helping them shows that Yes, Mr. listener, he was really a good man. And then secondly, we see his hire, that he didn't chase the girls. Right? After watching their animals. He didn't go after them. He didn't go after them. What happens today, if a man ends up helping some sisters
in law, protect those sisters. They'll be harassed for life by that brother. Right? But we see here the manhood of Masada, Sam, he helped them. And he just went back and sat in the shade. He didn't hang out with them. He didn't ask them. So who are you and and where are you from and nothing like that. You see his higher over here. And then we also see that he accepted the offer of nikka due to a foreigner in a foreign land alone, because it was a very good option. It was a way of preserving his his modesty. And also it granted him a very good opportunity, so why not? And then we see over here the terms and conditions that were agreed upon musala Sinan, he fulfilled them with dignity,
and it shows his manhood Fela Mercado muzzle agile. And when Moosa had completed the term and was traveling with his family, he perceived from the direction of the mount of fire, he said to his family, stay here, indeed, I have perceived a fire, perhaps I will bring you from there some information or burning wood from the fire, that you may warm yourselves. But when he came to it, he was called from the right side of the valley in a blessed spot from the tree almost Indeed, I am Allah, Lord of the worlds and he was told throw down your staff, but when he saw it, moving as if it was a snake, he turned in flight and did not return. Allah said oh Moosa approach and fear not
indeed you are of the secure, insert your hand into the opening of your garment, it will come up white without disease and draw in your arm close to you as prevention from fear meaning whenever you feel afraid, put your hand where what boom, la cadena, Huck, bring your hand to yourself. Bring your hand to yourself, either here or here. Meaning Put your hand on yourself. Draw in your arms when you feel afraid. And you see when you're praying Salah where do you put your hands on your chest? Right? And literally your fears, your anxieties, it's as if you are
you know, controlling them. You're calming them down. So this is the solution to our fears. This is how we calm ourselves down was three Nova Sabri was Allah for those are two proofs from your lower to fit our own and his establishment indeed they have been a people defiantly disobedient he said my lord indeed I killed from among them someone and I fear they will kill me Will sorry Listen, I'm doesn't pretend as if he's innocent, he's an angel. What happens to us if we are given a good position anywhere? If someone praises us, we portray ourselves as perfect
Look at Massaro s&m. He's saying Yo, Allah, I committed a murder. He remembers his sin, his mistake.
And you see a person who's really true to himself, he remembers his mistakes. And he keeps asking Allah for forgiveness he Allah forgive me, even though it's been 10 years, 20 years, I know I made that mistake. You forgive me if you don't forgive me, what's gonna become of me? For a half a afternoon, I fear that they will kill me. And my brother Houghton is more fluent than me and tongue. So send him with me as support verifying me, indeed, I fear that they will deny me meaning I can't do this alone. Send a helper with me. Allah said we will strengthen your arm through your brother and grant you both supremacy. So they will not reach you, it will be through our signs you and those
who you follow will be the predominant so the key to your victory will be what? What our signs.
And the fact is that when a person holds on to the Quran, then this is what brings him success in this life and the next. And over here we also see that a lot promises them protection and this protection also comes out when a person relies upon Allah, when a person holds on to the book of Allah. But when musar listened and came to them with our signs, as clear evidences, they said, this is not except invented magic, and we have not heard of this religion among our forefathers. And we'll say this and I've said my lord is most knowing of who has come with guidance from him. Is it me who has brought guidance? Or is it you who is upon guidance, and to whom will be the succession
in the whole meaning who is it that will survive? Indeed, wrongdoers do not succeed and fit our own set? Oh, eminent ones. I have not known you to have a god other than me. Look at how he's deceiving these people. Then ignite for me, Oh Ha man, a fire up on the clay, meaning burn bricks of clay and make for me a tower that's very solid, that I may look at the God of Moosa make a tower. Let me go up and see if there's really a god up there. I know that the only God is me, this is what ferons said. And indeed, I do think he is among the liars. This was what this was his arrogance. And he was arrogant, he and his soldiers in the land without right and they thought that they would not be
returned to us. So we took him and his soldiers and threw them into the sea. So see how was the end of the wrongdoers? And we made them leaders invite into the fire and on the Day of Resurrection, they will not be helped and we call to overtake them in this world occurs. And on the Day of Resurrection they will be of the despised meaning they're the ones who ultimately suffered here and in the hereafter there is only destruction for them only punishment for them. Now what is mentioned over here that what are unknown imitator una Illa now, we made them leaders calling people to fire fit our own Hama and Hannon was as Minister. Right. So fit our own and the people who were with him.
Who were they in reality, they were calling people to fire meaning all those who followed fit our own were being led to hellfire. And this is something that's very serious, we need to see who is it that we are following? Who is it that we are following? Who is it that we're going after?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said there will be some people who will lead people according to principles other than my tradition, they will lead others but they will lead them according to principles that are different from what I have taught. You will see their actions and disapprove of them. Or they follow the lower on who he said, Will there be any evil after that good. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said yes, there will be some people who will invite others to the doors of hell. And whoever accepts their invitation to it will be thrown in it by them. I said O Allah's Messenger. describe those people to us. He said they will belong to us and speak our
language. I asked, What do you order me to do if such a thing should take place in my life? He said here to the group of Muslims and their chief, or they've said, if there is neither a group of Muslims nor chief What should I do? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said keep away from all those different groups. Even if you have to bite meeting eat the root of a tree till you meet Allah while you are still in that state. Meaning do not at any cost. follow a leader who is corrupt. Do not at any cost. Obey someone who is telling you to do something wrong. Even if you have to live alone, and you have nothing left to eat but the roots of a tree then still hold on to your faith and don't
compromise on your faith. Why? Because following such people, is what being led into the hellfire. The prophets of Allah
also said there will be leaders whose word will not be refused. Why? Because of their fear, meaning whatever they order, they will be obeyed, even if they're giving a command that's clearly wrong. The whole world says it is wrong but still there people will obey them. Because they're afraid of them. They will be admitted forcefully into the fire, and some will follow others meaning the leaders will go into the fire and who's going to come behind them, those who obey them, those who follow them. So in this is a warning for us never, ever follow people blindly. Think about it. What they're telling us to do. does Allah approve of it? Is this something that has room in our religion? If it's
something that is acceptable, then okay, but if it's something that's not acceptable in the deen, then don't follow them.
