As we let him in the shade line over James Miller has over him. Lesson number 93 Circle are off. We'll begin from 127.
We'll call a man or woman homie, theater owner, and the eminent among the people of our own set to who do fit our own. After what happened with the magicians, the magicians were all martyred and musala salaam was spared. And along with him who else was spared? The bunny is sorry.
And obviously the Bani Israel they had believed in masayoshi son because he was one of them, he was their messenger.
And they had become very active in his obedience. And that was obviously something that fit our own, and his people did not want that their slaves have freedom have inner freedom. They cannot tolerate that. So the eminent ones meaning the chiefs, the elite of the society, they said to fit around that a turbo Moosa? Are you going to leave Musa Wakayama, who and his people?
Meaning Are you going to leave them alone? Leave see do fill up so that they spread mischief in the land? Which land the land of Egypt? I
mean, are you not going to punish them? Are you just going to let them be? Are you not going to make life difficult for them? Because if you don't, with this freedom of theirs, what are they going to do? They're going to spread corruption in the land. There is already so much unrest because of what happened.
Because the whole people had gathered up where the magician's had come. And without Islam, he presented his miracle. And obviously, that caused a lot of unrest in the entire society. So the elite are now very concerned. And they said, If you leave them, then what's going to happen? More and more people are going to follow Masada center, more and more people are going to become rebellious towards you. Just look at it. You're magicians. Those people who were skilled, they left you and they followed whoosah.
So if you leave the people, what's going to happen, everyone is going to rebel against you.
The Magicians could dare to do that. Just imagine what the other people will do. So you have to do something, you have to take some action.
Look at how they're inciting that or
that are you going to leave Moosa and his people leaves you to fill up so that the spread corruption in the land,
wherever, okay, and he leaves you who leaves you.
Whoo, sorry, Sam leaves you or his people, they leave you.
And the people who salesianum refers to the Bani Israel as well as all those who have believed in him. Whether it was the magicians or other than the magicians who had believed in musasa. So are you going to leave them so that they spread corruption in the land whereas they have left you were early attacker and also your gods? What does it mean by this? weather? Okay, what early attack?
The NRO is from the reflector as well, that weather? And what does that mean to lead to abandon?
And what does it mean by that he is leaving you
that he is not worshiping you.
Because for their own, he claimed to be God. He was supposed to be the Son of God, or the representative of God.
And people actually worship Him, and for their own claimed that another bakuman Allah, I am your greatest Lord.
So they will worship you Moosa doesn't frustrate to you.
And yet Raka also gives a sensor that he leaves you, meaning he does not accept your high position, your superiority. That look there are two leaders now in the society. One is you and on the other hand is Moosa and what are these people doing? They're not accepting your superiority, rather, they're going for musasa than what any attacker and they have also abandoned your gods, meaning they don't worship them.
And, and he is a Florida ILA.
What does this show
that the people of our own or their religion of our own was of funny theism. They used to worship multiple Gods
fit on himself claimed to be God, but at the same time, he also used to worship gods and at the same time, the rest of the people would also worship other gods, they have many, many gods. It is said that they used to worship the cow. Similarly, they used to worship various idols which they had made.
So they have left you and they have also left your idols.
Color he said, meaning for their own set. Son, what do you do Urbana? Oh,
soon we're going to kill all of their sense of net is a plural of avian, meaning their newborn sons, their newborn children, especially the males, we're going to kill them.
And we're going to have no mercy.
Look at the word No. katello from Katana ukata rudaki, which is to kill brutally to kill two pieces, to cut something to pieces to kill each and everyone. We're not going to have any mercy. We're not going to spare even one Sunoco to urbanize a home when a steadiness a home, and we're going to keep alive there women were in FOCA home car heroes, and indeed we are over them. Meaning over the bunny is surreal, because they are a slave nation to us. We are called hidden over them or hidden as a part of God.
And who is one who has power over the other? And what does it mean?
To have dominance and also to subjugate the other, to subjugate the other, to have power over the other.
So we have complete power over them. They are our slaves, and we can do whatever we want with them.
So what do we learn from this idea that the bunny is like you, their sons, their boys, their infants, they were killed, at what time
at the time when Masada Salaam was born, even at that time.
And now again, after musallam came as a messenger, again, for their own did the same thing. Why, in order to finish the bunny is to
look at the cruelty of film
that Musashi Salaam said, Let these people go send them home. He said, No. He refused to send them home. But he was willing to kill them. He was willing to finish their entire people. How? By killing the men. And by letting the women alive. Obviously, how is our generation going to continue? How is that people going to continue it's not going to last very long, very soon, that entire nation is going to be finished.
He wasn't willing to let them go. But he was willing to finish them.
And we learned that this is exactly what he did.
Instead of the author is number 26. We learn what color fit our own the Rooney Moosa, well yet
and fit our own set. Let me kill Moosa. Leave me alone and let me kill Musa and let him call upon his Lord. When the other orapa in the ahafo and Ubud de la Dena come, indeed, I fear that he will change your religion, oh, and you'll feel I feel a little facade, or that he will cause corruption in the land.
Look how threatened for the unfelt just by the presence of one person in his nation, one person who wasn't even fighting for any leadership in that society.
He just came to deliver the message of the hate, and to tell him to end his oppression and let the slave people go.
That's all he came to do.
And fit around felt so threatened that he's like, let me kill him. Otherwise, he's going to change your religion, or he's going to spread a lot of corruption in the land.
So if it's wrong, he killed their sons, the sons of Bani Israel. So in other words, he increased his oppression on the bunny izaya
Allah masala comi masala Sallam said to his people who were his people, the bunny saw you
because you see, it was a national problem now.
The future of the entire Bunny is right it was at stake.
And there was also action that was being taken that the infant's the boys they were being killed all of them and the girls were being kept alive.
So just imagine the state of Bani Israel.
Allah masala call me Musa Hassan said to his people in the midst of all of this, he presented to the Bani Israel a solution and what was that solution?
Is there a new Billa he was still seek help with Allah and also be patient?
Is there enough? Is there enough from the roof that is well known is Tiana which is to seek help. And once we do, be patient over what
over the persecution that you're suffering from,
have suffered over this hardship.
Why have suffered only why not do something because you cannot do anything.
You cannot combat the oppression that you're suffering. You cannot fight the enemy you cannot defend
yourself, you're not in that position to even defend yourself, forget fighting the enemy. You can't even defend yourself.
Because just imagine, they're slaves. And if the army of their own comes to kill your son, what can you do? to pick up your son to just take your son away? What can you do? You can't do anything.
You're not in any position to even defend yourself. So what do you have to do? You have to seek help from Allah subhanaw taala. Because at the end of the day, only he can help you. Even you cannot help yourself.
And secondly, you have to be patient over the hardship that you're suffering from. Because if you're not patient, then what's the point?
What's the point of going through all of this difficulty, because if you think of it, when a person is in a difficult situation, he can do something, he should do it, to save himself to protect himself.
But if you cannot do anything, and if he does not even do submit,
then he has lost his dunya. And he has also lost his job he has lost in both worlds.
He will not even get any reward for that difficulty that he's gone through.
So at least secure reward for your hero, because you cannot help yourself in this position.
Is there no Bella he was will.
And remember that in Aruba, indeed the earth it is live there it is, for a lot. It belongs to Allah.
Over here, what is he hinting at?
That the land belongs to Allah today, for our own has power over it. And this is temporary. You don't know when the tables will turn. You don't know when fitter only loses power. Because the land belongs to Allah. fit our own has power over it only for some time.
in Aruba, lillahi, urasoe, Herman Yesha, he makes to inherit it whomever He wills,
He gives the land to whoever he wills, meaning he gives authority over this earth to whomsoever He wills. So over here, what is he telling the Bani Israel, that this is the will of Allah, if he has given power to fit our own right now, there's some wisdom behind it. Because he gives it to whomsoever He wills. He has willed it for their own. And there is some wisdom behind it.
urasawa mania shadowman everybody from his servants, will allow people to end The end result is with who little Mata cane for those who fear Allah, and remember the meaning of the word Optiva. It is used for a good and a good consequence.
So the final good end is in whose favor? It's in the favor of those people who live a life of dukkha. And what does that mean that a person remains patient.
And what this patience means
that when a person is going through difficulty, then no incorrect statement comes out of his mouth.
Like the profits are allowed to sell and when his son passed away, what did he say? That the tears flow out of the eyes, the heart also feel sad.
But at the same time, nothing that upsets My Lord will come out of my mouth. Nothing at all.
This is what suffer is. And what does that show that a person has taqwa? He does feel sad. But he will not say anything that will upset his Lord. So those people who have Taqwa who live like this will behave like this even in the most difficult situations. They're the ones for whom there is a good end
in this dunya and if it's not in the dunya, then definitely in the Hereafter, when there are too little Motoki.
If you look over here, how was our lesson is encouraging the bunny.
And through this, it is very clear as to how a religious leader is how a religious leader is different from a mere political national leader.
If you look at it generally, when the people are suffering from a calamity, when the people are suffering from a disaster, whether it is by the hands of the enemy, or because of a national disaster.
Generally, what do mere political or worldly leaders do?
What do they say? They will go, they will give their speeches. They will make the people very emotional, and they will promise them such things which are completely untrue.
They don't have any ability themselves. The people don't have any ability either. They will say such things that will arouse the emotions of the people. And at the end of the day, nothing is done.
If people do take any action, at the end of the day, it only harms them. It only harms them.
There are riots that break out,
people begin to fight with one another. And there is no benefit at all.
Rather, the people actually suffer from more harm.
On the other hand, the religious leader, what does he do? What does he do? He accepts the situation at hand. He sees that, yes, we cannot do anything right now. We have very limited resources, we are weak, we don't have the ability to even defend ourselves. so in this situation, what does he do? Does he leave the people and go away to another country to enjoy himself at least? No. What does he do? He goes to the people and he tells them is there you know, Billa seek help with a law.
We need to change ourselves. We need to be deserving of the help of Allah. Perhaps we are doing something wrong because of which Allah's mercy is not coming to us. Is there no Bella. And at the same time was
many times when there is a disaster or anything like that, and people send aid, what are they concerned about food?
What are they concerned about? shelter, clothing.
This is what they're concerned about. But okay, fine. You will give people food, you will give them clothing, you will provide them with a shelter perhaps.
But is that really going to satisfy them in their hearts? No, they need to be told that you need to do suffer at this time. They need to be told you need to seek help from Allah at this time.
And this is exactly what Mousavi said and it is there a novella he was
and at the same time, he is giving them hope.
That in the other, Linda, all of this earth belongs to Allah.
If in this land, there is difficulty for you, there is so much land out there. Perhaps Allah subhanaw taala will take us over there.
And if in our own is over here, right now, the land belongs to Allah, there's some wisdom that He has given this land to him. And this is something that we need to accept as well. Because many times we cannot accept other people's superiority. And we're like, how could Allah allow this to happen?
How could Allah give such an oppressor, so much power, so much money, so much authority?
The fact is that it's the will of Allah.
Every situation is a test, every situation and if a las panatela is given authority to a person at a time, then he is being tested and at the same time, others are also being tested.
So, we see from this I in particular, the quality or the behavior of the religious leader at the time when his people are suffering from a difficulty
at the time when his people are suffering from a calamity that he encourages them to turn to Allah not to turn to him.
Because many times people say that yes, I am here I will help you. But the fact is the Messiah Sam is saying you and I cannot help you. You need the help of Allah. Is there a new builder?
What happened then? What was the response of the bunny is what you
call? Oh, they said, Udine, I'm in Cabo. We were hurt from before. Lena from the roof letters Hamza that Yeah. Other
and what does it mean? What does it hurt
when someone is suffering from some harm,
and the word other includes physical as well as mental ailment, mental hurt
when a person is suffering physically, and is also suffering mentally, emotionally? Oh, Dina, we were made to hurt Minh coverly and Dena before you came to us.
Meaning when you didn't come to us, before you had come to us as a messenger, we were in a lot of difficulty. We were suffering from a lot of oppression.
And what was that oppression
that we were made slaves. Our sons were being killed.
Before Masada was made the messenger, this was happening.
One embody magic done it. And even after that you have come to us.
Meaning since you have come, our state has not changed. When you came, we were hopeful that perhaps our situation is going to change. fit our own is not going to oppress us anymore, or at least we will leave or things will change somehow. However, things have gone back to exactly how they were before.
Our boys were being killed before. And now again, they're being killed. We had high expectations, but nothing has changed. mimbar the magic dinner
He said, who said, Musa said and responded that ourselves have become, hopefully your Lord. Our site gives the meaning of perhaps but when it is used for Allah gives a meaning of, hopefully definitely inshallah, very soon
I shall become a youth liccardo Welcome, perhaps your Lord will destroy your enemy. Because everything is in the hands of Allah
be helpful. So over here we see that Musa SNM is making his people hopeful. Because a believer never despairs of the help of Allah never. Because he trusts Allah, no matter how impossible situation may seem,
even if you think that nothing has changed, things are exactly how they were before.
If you look at it, for instance, over here, before their sons were being killed, and again, the sons are being killed, before they were being oppressed, and now again, they were being oppressed. Nothing has changed.
Seminary in our lives, sometimes we want something to happen.
But we see that years and years go by but nothing has changed. We're still standing where we were.
It happens. But what does Masada Salam do? He makes him hopeful? I saw a book on perhaps your Lord, and you've Lika do work on perhaps he will destroy your enemy. It's in his hands. Everything is in his hands. So never become hopeless.
Where's the cliff and he will make you successors fill out in the land. Meaning he will give you authority in the land which land whether it is in the land of Egypt or it is some other land for example Philistine, that he will give you authority in the land, he will make you free people in the land for Andorra, and then he will look day for Dharma loon, how is it that you are working?
Meaning right now you are in a test? And what is that test? You are enslaved. You are being oppressed.
And tomorrow insha Allah when Allah will free you when you will become a free nation, and He will give you authority, then again along we'll see as to how are you behaving? What are you doing?
in every situation, Allah subhanaw taala is watching us. What do we do?
Because he has created life and that's why Leah blucon a youcam Arsenal Allah Allah, which of you is best indeed in action, and that's exactly what Masada said I'm saying friends okay phenomenon, that even then a loss of penalty is going to observe your action is going to see how do you behave? What do you do in a different situation.
So we see that people are made to go through different situations in life.
Allah subhanaw taala changes the situation and sometimes it takes very long to go from one situation to another.
However, in each situation allows a pilot that is observing how his slave behaves, how his slave responds to a loss of
one or the other. lfl owner bc Nina. And we certainly seize the people of our own with years of famine,
the word of what does it mean to seize and the word is also used for seizing with punishment.
So we see is the people I mean, we season with punishment.
Remember, that whenever a messenger is sent to people,
and the people don't respond positively, then what happens? What happens what did we learn in the previous is that before the final punishment is sent, what isn't? minor punishments Why? So that the people get the room they humble themselves to Allah, they turn to Allah.
So similarly, Allah subhanaw taala tested the people of her own as well. He put them in hardship as well.
For a while now homebuilder says you have the raw
so when I had a whole new era fit our own vicine with Femi
the word I've seen is actually used for years. It's used for years and literally the word means to blaze.
What does it mean to blaze? And because of this reason, the word singing is generally used for years of famine. What is it used for years of famine years of decrease in wealth,
decrease in resources. Because when there is a drought when there is a famine, what happens? people begin using whatever resources they have accumulated over the past year is
And as they are not making any more money or they're not earning any more resources than what happens, their resources, they become depleted over time. They are set on fire in a way that one thing after the other is being consumed.
So, we see is the people of her own with Sydney, meaning with years of draft, there was recession in their economy, people were not earning money. Why? Because of the drought
because of the famine. And it is said that this was for many years, it went on
why not send me an fMRI and reduction in fruits? nuxe is from the rotators known off site. And what does it mean? decrease shortage.
And fMRI is a Florida Femara. And what does tomorrow apply to all kinds of produce? Whether it is fruits or vegetables, or nuts or grains,
all different types of produce.
So they were also tested with a loss, a reduction, a shortage of produce.
For example, people go to the store and they find out no fruit. No apples. That's it.
Just imagine if you go to the store, you can't find apples. You go to different different stores. You can't find them anywhere. This is what knucks mina thammarat.
Similarly, the people of Iran were also tested. Why Lumia karoun so that they would take a lesson, what lesson what would they realize
that perhaps this is because we are oppressing the Bani Israel.
Perhaps this is a result of our oppression.
Perhaps this is a result of our injustice, how we have treated people so unjustly over the past years, that maybe because of that reason, we are suffering from a drought, we are suffering from a recession in our economy. And we're suffering from a shortage of produce that people don't have food to eat.
But what happened for Elijah tamale hasenhuttl. But when God came to them, in these years of drought, if there was a year of prosperity, if there was a year in which there was more produce, if a hustler came to them, I know they would say meaning the people of their own would say, learner heavy, this is for us. Meaning This is ours by right, we deserve this. We deserve this. We have earned it, we have acquired it ourselves. So in other words, when they would receive something good in those years of famine,
they would still not turn to Allah, they would still not be grateful to Allah.
And they would think this is because we deserve it. It's our right,
we put in so much hard work, therefore, we have a pain this.
So they would not acknowledge that it would come from a loss of penalty
well into cyber home and if it reached them, what reach them, say you atone, any kind of evil.
Whether it was some kind of hardship, or it was some bad season, or it was shortage of food, or it was a lot of heat or drought or anything like that, if they suffered from some difficulty, what would they say
to you? They would consider it as a bad omen. Because of who be Musab because of musasa.
What does he mean by this? He has to be Moosa Amaro, they would ascribe it as a bad omen to to Moosa, and he was with him, meaning those who believed in musasa.
The word you're playing euro is from the room fetters thought. Yeah.
And what does it mean?
bird up Ruby, Jenna. Hi. It flies with its two wings.
You may have heard of the word theater. It's from the same root. And what does the year of me do? Consider something as an omen.
Basically, the Arabs if they were indecisive with regards to doing something or not doing something,
they would fly a bird.
And if the bird would fly to the right side, it was known as Santa Santa seen a lift noon.
And if the bird flew to the right side, the Santa bird, it was a sign of good luck.
It was a sign of good luck. So if the bird flies with the right, good luck, do it.
And if the bird flew to the left, it was called Barry. And that was a sign of bad luck, therefore, they wouldn't do it.
Slightly clearer is to ascribe bad luck, or good luck to an object or to an event
to understand, to ascribe bad luck, or good luck to an object to a person or to an event.
Similarly, what do people do today? If a black cat crosses before you, then what does that mean?
That's a sign of bad luck. So bad luck is ascribed to what? A black cat passing crossing the street.
So it's ascribed to an object and an event.
That because of this event, because this and this happen, this is a sign that I should not do this. This is a sign that if I do what I intended to do, it won't be good for me.
So you will be Moosa mama Mara, who if there was something bad that ever happened, they considered it to have happened. Why? because of the presence of musasa.
That because musasa is here, that's why we're suffering from this evil.
We are suffering from this bad luck because of who
because of the presence of musasa woman Mara, who and those were with him. So when they will leave, everything will be okay.
Because they're here. That's why we're suffering from this difficulty.
What does Allah say, Allah in America aeromarine de la, unquestionably, their thought their ill omen is with who, with Allah subhanaw taala, meaning their share of bed, whatever is decreed for them, whatever evil is decreed for them, it comes from who, from a loss of final data, not because of the presence of something, not because of the occurrence of something No,
it comes by who, by the decree of a loss of power without it and remember that a theater
is shaped. If a person says that, because such and such as happen, therefore bad luck will come to me.
Or because I have put this thing up, this thing is going to avert bad luck for me, or it's going to bring good luck to me, then all of this is what check. Because you're ascribing good or bad, benefit or loss to what to an object to a person, do a thing. And it comes only from who, from Allah subhanaw taala.
It is giving a loss exclusive right to someone else. Allah says Allah in tomato illume in the law, there are it is with Allah.
Whatever is decreed for a person good or evil comes from who, from Allah subhanaw taala.
What I can accept or whom layout, but most of them don't know, that good and bad, are both from Allah.
Most people don't know that good and better, both from Allah. Rather they think it's because of so and so person. It's because of such and such happened. It's because so and so saw me. It's because so and so looked at me and they passed a comment and they were looking at me like that.
No, it doesn't happen because of so and so person and so and so object. Anything that happens to a person happens by the will of Allah by the permission of Allah by the decree of Allah. When I can act on home layer, most of the people don't realize.
And we see over here, the behavior of the people of our own in this idea
that if there was something good, they would ascribe it to themselves.
And if there was something bad, they would ascribe it to musasa.
And many times we do this as well.
If something good happens with it, yes, yes. I did it.
I deserve it. I put in so much hard work.
We take the credit for it very happily very willingly.
But if something bad happens, then what do we do? We start blaming other people. We start blaming the circumstances. We start blaming the situation that we're in everything we blame, except for ourselves. This is exactly what the people around it
will call you and they said who said the people of onset to musasa
that murmur that Dena v Min 18
no matter what sign you bring us leaders held on our behalf to bewitch us with it from a National Academic meaning we will not be believers in you at all.
This is how stubborn they had become.
That they said mama What does
I mean, whatever whatsoever, whenever
anything, anytime you bring to us what mean if in any kind of any kind of miracle you show to us at whatever time, let us How can I be here so that you can be witches with it. fella National Academy, we're never going to believe in you
notice over here they're calling the miracle of Allah magic
that you want to be which is with it, you want to enchant us with it.
You want us to come under the effect of your magic, we're not going to believe in it.
So in other words, they were saying Do whatever you want. Bring whatever sign you want, we're not going to believe give up hope of our belief.
If someone becomes this stubborn, if they become this stubborn that what can you do to help them?
That they're saying no matter what you say, no matter what you do, I'm not going to accept what you're saying. Then why should you bother wasting your time with them? Should you not move on? Of course you should. You've tried so hard. It is at that musala Center. He stayed in Egypt, doing their work for 40 years, 40 years. He was there
trying to make the people have their own belief,
trying to make them realize that what they were doing was wrong,
that they should release the money. And at the same time, he was encouraging the Bani Israel that they should remain hopeful. They should not give a poor they should continue to seek help with Allah. They should be patient 40 years. But what was the constant response of the people of our own?
No matter what you do, no matter what you say, we're not going to believe in you.
I've honestly learned that musar SNMP made Dotto
into the universe I number 88 we learn what color Moosa Robinette in a data feed our own omala who Zenith and what am well and Phil higher to dunya.
And Musa Sam said, Our Lord, indeed you have given for their own and his establishment splendor and wealth in this worthy life. leelee Lauren sibenik so that they may lead many astray from your way. Rob Burnett implements and William Welsh do their guru beam fella you may know Hatha Yoga with herbal le
our Lord obliterate their wealth, obliterate their wealth, finish it and harden their hearts so that they will not believe until they see the painful punishment.
So musasa nam prayed against the people of your own that
