Allah subhanaw taala reminds them of another favorite what it Faulconer become Al Baqarah. What is and also remember this blessing, don't forget this one, which one that we're in for Akona we confer a conifer rock or fork and fork is to separate to divide between two things. One thing you separate it so it becomes into two. Like for example, cells, how do they multiply by division? One cell divides into two, this is fuck or similarly you have a huge piece of paper and you cut it from the middle fuck divided. So what it Photokina become, we parted begin with you, what does it mean by become meaningly originally come because of you for your sake. We divided for your sake, what did we

00:00:47 --> 00:00:52

divide for your sake or Bani Israel and by the sea?

00:00:53 --> 00:01:31

The sea was divided into two for your sake. When when Musa alayhis salam went to fit our own and demanded that fit our own should release the Bani Israel What did our own do he refused. Show us this sign show us that miracle. punishments are signed upon fit on and his people he said remove this punishment we will believe we will let the Bani Israel go every time that was done for around went back on his word. And eventually Allah subhanaw taala commanded Musa Lisanna take the Bani Israel Leave, leave Egypt go to Palestine. So when they left was our lesson and he took the Bani Israel towards Palestine and on the way to Palestine from Egypt. You have a seat in front of you.

00:01:32 --> 00:02:15

They imagined but he astray left not with boats not with construction material not with rafts, not with swimming gear. No they left perhaps empty handed or with the bare minimum stuff at front of the sea they're standing there like that sit we're going to be gone so imagine the sea in front of them the army of their own behind them the people of Messiah Islam said that's it we're doomed we're finished. We started Saddam said can no way never in the modern era be saya de with me is my Lord and He will guide me. He told us to come this way He will show us what to do. Allah subhanaw taala tells us into the sha Allah is 63 that for O Hanaa Isla Musa, a new libera Falcon that we inspire to

00:02:15 --> 00:02:42

musasa that strike the sea with your staff, the same staff which when he threw turned into a snake, the same stuff he was told to throw into the sea fun fella, so the sea parted. And what happened Fergana Kulu Falcon cathodal are live and each part of the sea was like a huge mountain. So imagine all the water as a huge mountain on your right and a huge mountain on your left and in the middle. A dry bath

00:02:43 --> 00:02:49

it phenomena be common Barbara this was done for whose sake funny Israel

00:02:50 --> 00:02:57

have we ever heard of anyone else for whom this was done? The sea was parted for them. This is how special the Bani Israel was.

00:02:58 --> 00:03:44

What it Farakka become Al Baqarah So what happened then for angina calm then we rescued you angina same route noon gene Well, we rescued you We saved you because when the sea was parted, there was a clear path before them, and they crossed it safely. But when they crossed for their own set, great, I can also go after them. And when he tried to go after them as he reached right into the center of the sea, what happened? What a little corner out of it. And we drowned the People of the Sea closed in on them. Just imagine the sea closed in on them what a rock not a rock now with a rock off work and work is to drown. So we cause to drown who elephant wrong. The entire people of their own.

00:03:45 --> 00:04:17

All of them who had come with him were untrimmed on their own. And you were looking down balloon norm Zara another another is to look to see. So all of this happened before your very eyes. You saw the people of Iran coming into the sea. And you saw the water crashing on them. You saw the sea closing on them and you saw the end of their own and his people they were killed. They died before your very eyes were intim tumbled on.

00:04:18 --> 00:04:59

What do we learn in this aisle? Many lessons. First of all, we see that Allah subhanaw taala is reminding the Bani Israel as to how he saved them, how he rescued them. In the previous verse, what do we learn that Allah save them from for their own in his oppression? And in this verse, Allah tells them as to how exactly he saved them. And this saving was a huge blessing. Remember that a blessing includes two things. First of all, it includes that a person gets that which he wants, what is beneficial for him. And secondly, a blessing includes that what is harmful? What is disliked, is taken away from a person. He gets rid of it. So how is this a blessing for the bunny? Is that are

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

you that

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

What was their goal? What was their desire that they should be saved? Allah subhanaw taala gave them that blessing.

00:05:06 --> 00:05:15

What was dangerous for them what was harmful for them for our own and his people? Allah subhanaw taala caused them to drill a complete blessing, a complete favor.

00:05:17 --> 00:05:55

Then we also learn in this verse, that when Allah subhanaw taala wants to take a person out of some difficulty out of some trial, he can do so by means that we cannot even imagine we cannot even think of good the Bani Israel ever expect that the sea would be parted for them, perhaps a huge ship appearing in which they could you know, board and the ship would take them safely. Okay. But the sea parting for them. mean that's a big deal. Who can cause that to happen? Only Allah. So when we want to come out of some difficulty, who should we turn to? The one who can cause the see to split?

00:05:56 --> 00:06:23

The one who has the power to relieve you the one who has the power to take you out of your problem? What happens to us is that when we are in some difficulty, we make dua to Allah and what do we expect? As soon as we pray? A miracle happens and boom, the problem is gone. Does it happen like that? Not necessarily. The Bani Israel they suffered for one year, one month, one day, no, for many, many years.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:50

Just imagine, Musa alayhis salam when he was born, the Bani Israel were enslaved. And this is why the mother Musa alayhis salam put him in a basket and put the basket where in the river, and the people have their own picked him up and adopted him as their own child. Musar Islam left Egypt, went to Medina, and then came back as a prophet. And at what age were prophets given prophethood at the age of 40.

00:06:51 --> 00:07:38

That is when he returned to Egypt as a prophet of Allah. Did the Bani Israel leave the next day? No, they left Egypt after many, many years. What does it show to us that problems? They go and injury, but not quickly? When you're making dua, have patience. When you turn to Allah have patience, you wonder, why can it not be taken away immediately? There is some wisdom. There's some reason that we cannot see right now we do not comprehend right now. But there is a reason why your problem is not being taken away immediately. Something has to happen or you have to learn a lesson or something or the another Allah Allah knows about. But we should have patience when we turn to Allah subhanaw

00:07:38 --> 00:08:07

taala. Is Allah not patient with us? Of course, think about so many times we disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala. So many times we say things that Allah does not like, we hear things that Allah does not like, does he punish us immediately? No, when he doesn't punish us immediately when he doesn't give us our record of deeds and our final fate until the day of judgment than why are we so impatient, that Oh ALLAH lift our problems away from us immediately.

00:08:08 --> 00:08:29

Another very important lesson that we learn is that it is also a huge blessing of Allah. If a person sees his enemies and before his eyes, meaning a person sees the end of his enemy and not just hears about it. Because Allah subhanaw taala says we're untrimmed on the road, the Quran and his people. They were drowned, but you saw them drowning.

00:08:30 --> 00:09:20

Imagine someone you eat. I hope you don't. But just imagine someone has been very, very harsh to you. They ruin your life. They ruin your confidence. They brought a lot of misery and pain to you. You have any good feelings for them? Do you wanna take revenge from them? Of course. Why not? Imagine the state of the Bani Israel. Imagine one person. One woman her son was killed. Her brother was killed her father was killed. Imagine a man whose wife was raped whose daughter was raped, whose family was killed. Imagine the sorrow the misery the anger the feelings of revenge they had in their hearts. And Allah subhanaw taala satisfied their hearts when he showed to them the end of Iran and

00:09:20 --> 00:09:59

his people were untrimmed on the rune. This was an added blessing on them an added favor to them with anthem don't hold on to this is also a huge favor that Allah subhanaw taala remains the Bani Israel off. One more lesson that we learned is fit are all in his people. How are they punished? They were drowned in the sea for their own was a very, very proud verse. He was a very proud man. And he considered himself to be God. Just imagine the foolishness of that man who knows he's not God, but he's telling people I am God. Just imagine and he tried to show his power to the people as well because this is how

00:10:00 --> 00:10:46

We control them. And how did he show his power to the people we learned in the Quran into the sacrifi 51 That one other theater owner feel called me Paula Jaco me, a lady Sally Moon comecer. He announced in his kingdom that oh my people, this nation, this kingdom doesn't belong to me, isn't it mine? Well had Hill unhealed and these rivers in Egypt, that dream and the they flow under my control, meaning I have absolute power and control over these rivers. So he boasted to them that he had authority power over even the land of Egypt and the water of Egypt and what happened? He died in that very water. He was killed in that very water. So when a person is arrogant about what Allah has

00:10:46 --> 00:10:54

given him, then what happens? He is humiliated. He was proud about the water of Egypt and he was killed in water.

00:10:55 --> 00:10:57

The recitation of these two verses and then we'll continue

00:10:58 --> 00:11:00

well, Jaina

00:11:03 --> 00:11:04

una

00:11:07 --> 00:11:09

alloga view the beholder

00:11:16 --> 00:11:18

was he that he

00:11:22 --> 00:11:27

knew more people Mowgli was a follow up on

00:11:30 --> 00:11:31

Jaina como

00:11:42 --> 00:12:08

imagine the Bani Israel they became corrupted in their religion, Yet Allah saved yet Allah rescued them yet Allah sent a messenger to them. What do we think that if a person has done something wrong, they're cursed forever, no good should ever be shown to them. But Allah subhanaw taala His mercy and its forgiveness is much more vast than that. As long as a person is alive, as long as a person is living, Allah subhanaw taala shows us favor to them.

00:12:09 --> 00:12:54

Who is being addressed in these verses? Primarily? The Bani Israel, which Bani Israel, those present at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Now, were they the ones who were rescued from federal? Were they the ones for whom the sea was parted? No. And what is almost a panel data address them? Because if this favor was not shown to their ancestors, would they be present today? Would they be alive today? Remember that a favor a blessing on your parents is a blessing on you. A blessing that your parents have enjoyed is in fact a blessing on you. If your parents weren't safe and secure, would you be safe and secure? If they didn't have education? would they bother to educate you know,

00:12:55 --> 00:13:22

a favor a blessing on your parents is in fact a blessing on who on you. And the money is right or being reminded of their history so that they are grateful to Allah subhanaw taala that Allah has been kind to us since centuries, generations one generation after the other Allah subhanaw taala was so kind and generous towards us. So when he has been so kind towards us, what should we do? Believe in Him, obey Him, not disobey Him, be grateful to him.

00:13:23 --> 00:14:06

Then Allah says we're in where our dinner Musa and remember this favorite as well what Kuru in where are the non Musa we promised? We made an appointment with who? Musa Sinha, the word where Arjuna is from the root letters. Well arrange that what are the you know about the word word? What is word mean? A promise. But where are the you see the LF here where are the is to make a promise with someone. There are two people involved here. Two parties involved here. So where are they now? We made an appointment we made a promise with who? Musa Arneson so Allah subhanaw taala made an appointment with who? Musa Lisanna and this appointment was were at the MT tool for how long Erber

00:14:06 --> 00:14:57

en la Latin 40 nights or Burien or bar what does a bar mean for over 1814 1330 So for 14 Nights Musa Salam was to be where at Mountune why? Because Allah subhanaw taala commanded him to come there. The Bani Israel were enslaved, they became corrupt. They wanted to get out of their problem. Allah subhanaw taala said Musa alayhis salam who rescued them. Allah subhanaw taala caused the sea to be parted. And what happened? The Bani Israel they ended up were in the desert in the plane of Sinai. And they were to go back home they were to go back to Palestine. Ever people have been enslaved for years and years. What knowledge did they have? whatever religion they knew off, perhaps they have

00:14:57 --> 00:15:00

forgotten by now. Whatever they knew what

00:15:00 --> 00:15:38

was last night for example, it is said that the African American people who were there, many of them were in fact Muslims when they were brought in as slaves to North America. But what happened over time, they lost their religion. So that some of them still today have Muslim names. Why? Because those names are well known in their culture, their religion, they don't know they have forgotten they have lost it. So think about the Bani Israel in the same way that they had forgotten their religion, and they had to be taught. So Musa Sam came not just to rescue them, but he also came as a messenger. Now they were going to have a fresh start. They were going to go back home and live

00:15:38 --> 00:16:20

normally as free people and as those people whose responsibility was to live according to the guidance that Allah had sent and also tell other people about it. And the book, the Torah, how was it given to them through Musa al Islam? How is it given to Busara Salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala told him to come to mount to and he was supposed to come to Mountain View for how long? Originally 30 nights they crossed the sea when he Striders there moosari Salam lefthanders Sana, in charge of the Bani Israel went to Mount Dora for 30 nights to get the Torah. But while he was there, Allah subhanaw taala extended that appointment with 10 more nights so 30 became how much 40 the Bani

00:16:20 --> 00:17:00

Israel back in the desert of Sinai, what happened to them? The set, Musa went for 30 Nights, it's been 30 Nights he's not coming back, forget about it. You know what, we're going to make our own god and we're going to make our own religion we're going to create our own ways of worship. So let's make an idol. And let's worship it. Allah subhanaw taala says, Some the husband will arrange Allah then you adopted you took it the husband Hamza, ha then a hada. To take it the harder to firmly take so you adopted what Allah insha Allah the calf, meaning you made the calf as your God and you worship the calf. The word urgent or in Jim lamb is used for a calf, you can see like a baby cow, an

00:17:00 --> 00:17:43

infant cow that is less than one month old, less than one month old. And this calf, they made it they made it themselves with what with gold. So it was a sculpture, a statue of a calf that was made of gold, and who made it for them. And then whose name was Sam Ed. He was also from the money Australia. Why did they make that guff? Many reasons are given. For example, it has been set to the Bani Israel when they left Egypt, they took with them only the most valuable belongings that they had. Which What could it be called? If you were told you have five minutes evacuate leave your house what would you take with you your favorite dishes and your vacuum that you bought and you're so

00:17:43 --> 00:18:23

proud of? And your linens and your shoe closet? What would you take with you? Your jewelry, your money? So they took their gold with them? Imagine you're in the desert and you have all this jewelry? It's like burdensome on you. So they said oh you know what? Let's make a golf let's make an idol out of it. So they made an idol out of it and they started worshipping it. Allah says something with the husband with Urgenda you took the guy for worship mimbar the after him after who after Musa al salaam went to the mountain? He was gone and you made the cut for worship. What until Lolly moon and you were wrong doers you were linoleum. How? When you made the calf and you started worshiping

00:18:23 --> 00:19:10

it? Lolly wound is a floor enough volume work lamp mean one What does lol mean? Oppression injustice. So you were unjust people meaning you were guilty. There is no excuse for you. You're not innocent at all until volley Moon how was it flown? Because they were committing chinook and remember that in a Shinto a woman or leave shake is the greatest injustice were undone while the moon but Allah says summer then our fauna and come we pardoned you our phone now i info well our phone and our for our alpha is to wipe off something to erase something our phones are full is forgiveness pardon in such a way that you don't inflict any punishment on the person who has done

00:19:10 --> 00:19:50

wrong. They've done wrong but you don't punish them. Just imagine that Allah subhanaw taala sent any immediate punishment on them. No. Later on. Yes, they had to do Toba and part of the Toba was that they had to take the legal punishment. However, Allah subhanaw taala did not annihilate and we did not finish them he did not punish them immediately are Foner unkown we pardon you we forgive you member the Delica even after that even after you're worshiping the calf, why that I look on dash Carone. So that you would be grateful. The word Allah Allah, what does it mean? It gives meaning of reason. Remember, law Allah con that the Quran or with Roberto and let the Halacha come when

00:19:50 --> 00:19:59

LatinAmerica Polycom narla co that the chlorella gives meaning of reason. So why did Allah pardon you so that you should be grateful

00:20:00 --> 00:20:45

A question was asked if the bunny is right had become corrupt and Why did Allah save them? Exactly. This was a huge favor of Allah when they worship the calf. Why did Allah forgive them as a favor so that they're grateful. This is how forgiving Allah subhanaw taala is. locum touch Quran. The spoon is from sugar sheen kufra. And sugar is what gratitude, gratefulness to show thanks to give thanks for a favorite that has been done to a person from the root letter shin Kapha is the word shampoo that but the shampoo is used for an animal that is very healthy, that is very good. That produces a lot of milk does a lot of hard work. And when you see an animal like that, what do you know, the

00:20:45 --> 00:21:30

master is very good. He really takes good care. If you see a car that is shining, even if it's like a model that is five years old, there's no scratches on it, no dent on it, no chip on it, nothing like that inside, perfectly clean. What do you think the owner really loves his car, the owner really takes care of his car. There's a person on my street, he has a huge truck. And anytime I go walking, most of the time, I'd say 75% of the time I see him cleaning his truck, massive truck, huge truck, and he cleans it as if he was cleaning himself, vacuums it and polishes it, he's sitting on top of it and polishing it and cleaning the windows, why he loves it. So a clean car represents the

00:21:30 --> 00:22:18

good behavior of who the master, a healthy animal represents the good behavior of who the master says sugar is what sugar is to show happiness to show gratefulness that Allah has done a favor on you. But if we appear to be the most miserable people, sad and gloomy and upset, and angry that we don't even take care of ourselves. It's as though we're saying Allah has not done any favor on me. When we don't take care of ourselves, when we don't take care of our responsibilities of our body of our health, when we don't do something good that Allah wants us to do. In a way we're saying Allah has not done any good to me. Sugar gratitude is not just saying Alhamdulillah it's not just saying

00:22:18 --> 00:23:02

thank you, Allah. Sugar is an attitude. It's a way of life. This is why the Scholars have said that sugar is expressed in three ways. First of all, sugar bill called in the heart, and this is that a person believes he confesses, he realizes in his heart that whatever he has, has been given to him by who? Allah subhanaw taala realisation of a blessing, your clean belief that it is from Allah, Allah has not deprived me. Secondly, sugar is also expressed through the tongue. It is also expressed how through the tongue that a person says words of gratitude. So for example, he says at Hamdulillah, he says, Thank you Allah, when he is sitting with people, he's not counting the

00:23:02 --> 00:23:46

problems that he's facing. What does he count the blessings. He doesn't say the glass is half empty, but rather he says the glass is half full. He talks about good things. And thirdly, sugar is also expressed through Jawara through the limbs of a person how that a person does those actions which Allah likes. Because when a person performs those actions which Allah likes, then what is he saying? Allah, I'm very happy. I'm very grateful. I love you for all the favors that you've done to me. This is why I will obey you. This is why I am doing this. So Shaka is not just words, what does it include? The heart, the tongue, as well as the actions it's a way of life it's an attitude. So Allah

00:23:46 --> 00:24:20

says, Allah Allah Campeche Quran, we pardon you so that you would be grateful. What do we learn in these verses? We learn over here. So Mara fauna uncom mimbar de Delica La La Quinta Sharon, should we be grateful only for the car that we drive the clothes that we have the family that we have the food that we eat? What else should we be grateful for? That Allah subhanaw taala forgave us for the crimes that we commit for the sins that we commit. We seek forgiveness that Allah forgives. So gratitude for what for forgiveness.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:59

being forgiven is a blessing and this is why a person should be grateful. Another very important lesson that we learn in these verses is the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala in appointing 40 nights for giving the book to Musar listener, could the book not be given in one instant? Could it not be given in one instant? It could be very easily but Allah subhanaw taala told Musar Listen, we have to come here stay 30 nights and then 10 more nights were edit 40 nights and then the book was given. Why? Because the knowledge of the dean is unlike any other knowledge. The knowledge of the dean is not like learning math equations or physics gone.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:39

Subs all of that know the knowledge of the deen is not just to be memorized and learnt, but it has to be absorbed and understood and internalized. To understand something to fully absorb something to fully internalize something, you need time, you need time. For example, right now we could have been going through these verses very quickly, I could be telling you Oh, this is what this word means is what this word means is what this quickly we could go through it. But why am I spending so much time? Because we need to understand these verses, relate them to our lives so that we can absorb them so that we can live according to them. This knowledge is not like the knowledge of math and

00:25:39 --> 00:26:24

science. No, it's different. This is why time was taken. The Prophet sallallahu sallam, how long did it take for him to receive the Quran, a total of 23 years, Allah is audit over giving the Quran to His Messenger in one day, less than a day, but 23 years because this religion, this knowledge, it requires time and attention from us. So one lesson that we can take for ourselves is that when we're learning the deen, if it takes time for us a lot of time, don't become impatient. You need to give it time. Without time and practice, you cannot internalize you cannot fully understand. Another very important lesson that we learn is that Musa SNM was called to the mantle away from the people away

00:26:24 --> 00:27:05

from all distractions so that he would be there fully and completely devoted receiving the tilde. Similarly, if we want to understand the deen absorb it, internalize it. What do we need to do? Give focused attention to it focused attention. So when you're learning your lesson, when you're doing your assignment when you're doing your homework, don't sit in front of the television. Please don't have your phone on. Don't have your iPad on with your Facebook and your Twitter feed constantly reloading No. Focus, focus, focus, turn off everything. Pay attention. Just like mozzarella. Selim had to pay attention at the mountain all by himself alone, not even one other person with him no

00:27:05 --> 00:27:46

distraction, because if we were distracted, we cannot absorb. Another very important lesson that we learn is about the complete and absolute ignorance as well as ingratitude of the Bani Israel. Who saved them from Finneran Allah subhanaw taala, who caused the sea to be pardoned for them, Allah subhanaw taala and who did the worship when they were saved? A statue that they made themselves. I mean, if it descended from the sky, okay, something special, if all of a sudden it appeared out of nowhere, okay, something special. If it did something, something special, but a gaffe that you've made with your own hands. What's so special about it? Nothing, nothing at all. So what does it show

00:27:46 --> 00:28:25

they're completely ignorance. And it shows how much they needed the hedaya how much they needed, the knowledge of the deen the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala. How mentally enslaved they were the people of Egypt, what were the volunteers, they used to worship idols and the Bani Israel. As soon as they were freed, they imitated who, those people who had control them. And unfortunately, many times we do the same thing as well, that we imitate other people, just because we think what they're doing is very cool. I mean, gold seems very impressive, very attractive, golden, bright, attractive. So they made a statue out of it. Perhaps when they saw the Egyptians worshipping their idols, they

00:28:25 --> 00:29:07

were very impressed. So they wanted to do the same thing. And we do the same thing. We follow other people without even thinking about what we're doing, for example, or this person will look at her she's so bold and confident and look at how she swears all the time, I should do the same thing. One of these, this is what we have become. It says that we have no identity and we just emitted other people all the time. This is why we can't wear the hijab. This is why we can't pray salah, this is why we can't fix our language. This way we can fix our actions. We just emitted other people without even using our mind. This is not being cool. This is being foolish and ignorant. Why should you do

00:29:07 --> 00:29:46

what other people are doing? Why? Why should you imitate them? Why should you be a sheep? You know what she do? They just follow the crowd. Wherever the sound is coming from they just run there. They don't think themselves which is why even if one should fall off the cliff, oh the other sheep will follow. And this is what we do. She said this bad word. Cool. I can see that too. There we go using it against our parents and against her sisters and family members without any respect for anybody. This has not been cool. This has been absolutely foolish. We learn about the Bani Israel and AFI number 138. Allah subhanaw taala says which I wasn't happy Bani Israel eland Bahasa for at our Allah

00:29:46 --> 00:29:59

Coleman yaku fauna Allah Ocimum in the home that the Bani Israel Allah subhanaw taala caused them to cross the sea and they passed by a people who were very devoted to their idols. So they saw this in Egypt and they saw this right after the cross the sea when they saw

00:30:00 --> 00:30:36

Head on over to Musa they said oh Musa ager Alana Isla had come out earlier you want to make a god for us it says they have so many gods you make an idol first it says they have so many idols, we'd love to do the same thing. We started this and I'm set kind of in the component that you are alone You are people who are ignorant. They imitated the people they wanted to imitate Musa Lister did not listen, he went to the mentor, what did they do? They made a car behind them. So we must use our mind. Use our thinking, reasoning before we imitate other people before we do what they're doing. similarity. We also learn in this eye about the vastness the tolerance, the generosity of Allah

00:30:36 --> 00:31:26

subhanaw taala that how generous he is how tolerant he is that the same the Israel whom you save, started worshipping a calf, and there was no Thunderball that fell from the sky finishing all of them. The water of the sea did not come and swallow all of them. No, look at how forgiving hola is Samara fauna and calm. Then Allah says Edina Musa Kitab and recall remember this favorite as well. When we gave the book to Musa al Islam entertainer Dana Hamza atta is to come and atta is to give. So we gave to Musa what? Al Kitab. The book which book is this? The Torah. So we gave him the Torah, one for Connor. And also the for con, for con is from the letters foul cough. What does Farakka

00:31:26 --> 00:32:12

mean? To separate to divide, and for con is a noun, which means that which separates that which divides, and it's translated as criterion for calm over here is a description of the kita it's a description of the book, it appears to be something different, but it's not actually something different in Arabic, there is a rule of rocks and sliver sliver being off. Okay, those of you who are familiar with these words, get it and those of you don't know, remove it, as if you didn't hear anything. Remember this rule, whenever I say something of grammar that you don't understand, ignore it. And if you know benefit from it, okay? So there's a rule in Arabic which is off of sofa or

00:32:12 --> 00:32:45

animals oof, that you join the attribute the adjective with a well in the middle, but it's not referring to something different. So for example, over here, I'll keep tabs on welfare corner. It appears to be two different things. But unfuck Khan is actually a sliver it's an adjective of what Al Kitab and in the middle there is half of well, so the Kitab the Torah, how does Allah subhanaw taala describe it as criterion something that separated distinguished between what right and wrong good and evil,

00:32:47 --> 00:33:30

the Bani Israel? Did they have any idea about what right was what wrong was when they left Egypt? Doesn't seem like because what's the most important thing that we must know about our religion? That Allah alone deserves worship? You ask any Muslim, even if he does not know much about religion? What does he know? Who is our Lord? Allah? This is the basic principle basic. But imagine the Bani Israel had forgotten even that so this is why Allah subhanaw taala given the Book, which served as a criterion guiding them, what was right what was wrong. Elke tappable for Karna y la la quinta Dune, so that you would obtain guidance that the dune had earlier he died that you would obtain guidance

00:33:30 --> 00:34:11

and remember he died is of two types. One is he died of it shad he died of rain. And the second is that I have the feel Can I have? Or am I? So over here it first of all things are Allah comes down to that you're guided meaning you know what you're supposed to do. And when you know what you're supposed to do, you may do it. What does it show to us? That the sending of books for the people, Allah subhanaw taala has sent many books for people for their guidance. This is one of the greatest favors that Allah subhanaw taala has bestowed on mankind. One of the greatest favors, because if the books were not sent, if the religion was not revealed, how would we know that how we're supposed to

00:34:11 --> 00:34:49

give the help of Allah? How would we know about the best way of giving the heck of people we wouldn't know human beings, they have this fitrah in them, there is a being who has made me where did I come from? Where am I going? Why am I here? Every person has this. Allah subhanaw taala sent the books to guide us if he had not sent the books, it will be very difficult for us to find the truth, very difficult. So the revelation of the books is a huge blessing. Why because through these books, we learn how we're supposed to live properly, give the hack of Allah and also give the hack of the creation of Allah.

00:34:50 --> 00:34:59

Allah subhanaw taala gave the Torah to the Bani Israel. What has he given to us? The Quran, the Quran is a blessing. Take it as a blessing. Be grateful for

00:35:00 --> 00:35:23

it because it is in reality a blessing. We also learn from this verse, that the reason why Allah subhanaw taala gave the Torah to the Bani Israel was what? So that they would obtain guidance? What does it show? That guidance comes from where? From where your ideas, your reflection, your own thinking, your own observation? No, where does guidance come from?

00:35:24 --> 00:36:04

Allah subhanaw taala the revelation that he has sent the book that he has given, that is the source of guidance, Lara lecan that the dude so if we want to improve ourselves, we want to better ourselves, what should we turn to the book of Allah? If we feel we are lost? We have so many questions, we'd like them to be answered. What do we need to turn to the book of Allah? So for example, today we learned about why we suffer from problems why we go through difficulties and trials. Where do you get the sense of from the book of Allah, not anywhere else? Now I look them data dune. And we also are in this verse about the great virtue of the Torah that Allah subhanaw

00:36:04 --> 00:36:41

taala gave to Bani Israel. What Tina Musa al Kitab well, for Connor Allah describes it as for Quan at another place in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala describes it as * guidance. In certain Merida I have 44 Allah says in Zen Neto, Raja V Ha, who then want to run new light. What is light? Do? It shows you the way Imagine you're in darkness, you won't know what is what where you're supposed to go where you're supposed to sit, stand anything, you're lost, confused? Light, what does it do? It puts everything in its place. And this is exactly what the book of Allah does. It's a light.

00:36:42 --> 00:36:43

Let's listen to the recitation

00:36:45 --> 00:36:45

well

00:36:53 --> 00:36:54

to move

00:36:55 --> 00:36:56

down

00:36:58 --> 00:36:59

to volume

00:37:09 --> 00:37:10

the school

00:37:12 --> 00:37:12

we're in

00:37:14 --> 00:37:16

kita, the wonderful bond

00:37:23 --> 00:38:06

where the Bani Israel grateful, Allah saved them, he rescued them. Were they grateful? No. Why do you say that? Exactly. That instead of giving the hug of Allah, what did they do? They gave the heck of Allah to something else? What is the right of Allah, that he should be worshipped? It is his right. And especially when Allah save them, it was more of his right that he should be worshipped and he should be thanked. But what did the Bani Israel do? Instead of worshipping Him, they worshipped something else, an idol that they made themselves. And we need to learn from this as well. Many times Allah subhanaw, Taala takes us out of problems and difficulties. But what do we do?

00:38:07 --> 00:38:46

What do we say? Thank God for that medicine. We're saying thank God, but many times, we say oh, you know that medicine if I didn't find it, I'd be gone. That doctor, he saved my life. That doctor is amazing. We say such statements and in the back of our mind, okay, we know Yeah, Allah did the Savior. But who are we actually truly grateful to Allah subhanaw taala or other people, other people many times, unfortunately, it happens with us. That doctor came right in time that person came right in time. This thing happened right in time. Think about it, who caused it to happen, Allah alone caused it to happen.

00:38:47 --> 00:39:22

So when he caused it to happen, we should thank him the most. When we are in extreme difficulty, then we turn to Allah alone. We turn to Allah, Allah when we've tried everything when we've tried the medication, we've tried the doctors, we've tried different alternate medicine, different things we've tried, nothing works, then we turn to Allah. Allah alone saves us. And then what do we do? We say, I don't know what worked, something worked. I tried everything. The answer should be Allah subhanaw. Taala has helped me. He's the one who cured me. So one lesson that we can take with ourselves today is what? Thank Allah.

00:39:23 --> 00:39:59

thank Allah for being here, being safe. And thank Allah for all of the blessings that we have. If we just change our thinking. Instead of focusing on the problems, we start focusing on the blessings. Instead of focusing on what we don't have, we should start focusing on what we do have. Because remember that Allah has not deprived any person of good, every single person, Allah subhanaw taala has given them something special. Typically, we say the blessing of health, the blessing of a body, the blessing of a hand the blessing overnight, but think about it realistically. If you have terrible in laws

00:40:00 --> 00:40:27

It's quite possible you have a very loving mother, very loving children. If you think that you have poor health, it's quite possible that you have a lot of good education. You have a very good career. You have very good friends Shavon makes us focus on what we don't have an in the process we forget everything that we have. So focus on what the blessings this will make you happier
