Well, where are dinner and we made an appointment with who? Musa Musa alayhis salam. How long was that appointment supposed to be? Salah fina Leila 30 Nights. We're at ma'am now haha. And we completed it meaning those 30 Nights. They were completed with beer I shouldn't with 10 more. So initially, who started a salon was supposed to go for 30 nights but when he was there, that appointment was extended to 10 more. So what happened then Fatima so it was completed me a call to appointment or have be of his Lord of Bernina, 14 Lay 11 Nights. So initially 30 extended to 10 more. So Musa Salam was there for how long? How long, 14 Nights. Now in the desert of Sinai, when

00:00:53 --> 00:01:10

the Bani Israel crossed the sea, they were in the desert of Sinai, as they made their way through the desert towards Philistine back home. Allah subhanaw taala called Musa SNM for an appointment were on Mountune y, in order to give him the book, in order to give him the Torah.

00:01:12 --> 00:01:23

Some messages are so important and noble, that Allah subhanaw taala does not send them rather He calls his servants to receive them.

00:01:25 --> 00:01:46

The prophets have a lot of Salam, every single command that was given to him, it was sent down to him, but the command of Salah what happened, he was called up to the heavens. And then he was given that command, Musa alayhis. Salam also, he was made to come to mount to, in order to receive the Torah.

00:01:47 --> 00:01:55

Now you see, if you are given something in your house, okay, then do you value it as much?

00:01:56 --> 00:02:36

Do you value it as much? Like, for example, since you were born, you saw certain furniture in your house, right? It's always been there. So what happens you don't value it that much. Let's say there's a coffee table, you put something heavy on it, okay? And it leaves a scratch, you leave something sharp on it destroys the paint, right? And you leave, let's say, a bottle of water that is leaking on it. And you don't take care of it and what happens? It leaves a stain. Right? Why aren't you so concerned about it, because it's old, you're bored of it, you don't value it that much. But if there is a piece of furniture, that you go and choose yourself, you go, you have to strive in

00:02:36 --> 00:02:52

order to get it. And let's say you go find out there's a backorder Okay, and then you have to wait for like seven months or something. And then finally that table arrives? Have you ever done that ever? Has it ever happened to you? Or am I talking about things that are nonsensical?

00:02:55 --> 00:03:24

When you have to wait for something, when you have to go and search for something, then what happens? You value it even more. Right? So some people, when they're given knowledge at home, they don't give much importance to it. But when they have to travel every weekend for 45 minutes, every day, you know do their and back home, then what happens they value what they're getting,

00:03:25 --> 00:03:25

isn't it,

00:03:27 --> 00:04:11

isn't it, they value what they're getting, because they're striving for it. If you have to go to school, that is two hours away from your house, or let's say it's in a different city and you have to move there, then every single day you value because you know what you are sacrificing in order to get this. So this is why we see that traveling in order to learn is something that is very much appreciated. Why? Because when a person will travel for it, he will leave his home his comfort in order to receive it, then he will value it much, much more. So Musa Santa, he was made to come to mentor, and he was supposed to be there for how long 30 Nights, it doesn't mean that he was only

00:04:11 --> 00:04:21

supposed to be there for the nights and for the days he would go back no days are included in that. And this was extended to 14. And the question is why so long?

00:04:22 --> 00:04:59

Why not just an hour to Musar ism comes last 100 it gives you the total and close. That's it. Why 30 Nights extended to 40 because in order to receive something valuable, you have to dedicate some time to it. You have to be spiritually prepared in order to receive it. Musa alayhis salam for those 30 nights for those 40 nights he was worshipping Allah subhanaw taala he worshipped Allah because in order to receive the Scripture, you have to have the capacity with

00:05:00 --> 00:05:52

then your heart in order to contain it. Because otherwise, a person will learn. And the words will just bounce back. The heart has to be soft and ready. You don't like ground mud soil, if you wish to plant some seeds in it, what do you do? Has anyone done any thing like that in the summer? What do you do? First you have to prepare the ground. Right? Especially after the winter is here, you have to really soften it. And sometimes it takes a long time, you have to soften the ground, you have to put the fertilizer in it, you have to prepare it, and then you put the seed because if the soil is not prepared, and you just put the seed like that, then what will happen? It will die. It'll die, it

00:05:52 --> 00:06:08

won't grow anything. And whatever it grows, it won't be that great. So Musa alayhis salam worshipped Allah subhanaw taala for those 30 nights for those 40 Nights, even Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam before he received prophethood where would he go?

00:06:09 --> 00:06:41

Where would he go to the cave? Right? And what would he do in the case we learned yet the 100th he would worship Allah because the people Arabia, they did believe in Allah. All right, so he worshipped Allah, because with the worship of Allah, you develop that strength, that capacity in order to contain the book of Allah. So we see that the prophets of Allah, they spent dedicated and uninterrupted time as students of knowledge,

00:06:43 --> 00:06:46

dedicated and uninterrupted time.

00:06:47 --> 00:07:24

Mossad Hassan was taken away from Bani Israel, because if he remained in Bani Israel every day, they would come up with some problem, some question that would disturb Osiris. And imagine how he must have felt when the Bani Israel said to him, we want an idol. If you were in that place, what would you do? Like literally would hold your head? But for God's sake, what's wrong with you people? Don't you get it? So imagine if he was within the Bani Israel constantly disturbed and distracted? Would he be able to receive the Torah? No. So likewise, if we want to study our lesson, then can we ever sit in front of the television with our jaws open?

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

And we're trying to memorize our lesson? Is it possible?

00:07:29 --> 00:07:41

Is it possible? No. And if you have your cell phone right next to you, and you say, I'm trying to memorize my lesson, and you read half a line, and then BP, and you check your phone,

00:07:42 --> 00:07:51

and then you read half a line. And then again, somebody calls so you're distracted again, and somebody comes and talks to you about something. If you cannot focus, you cannot learn.

00:07:53 --> 00:08:34

If you're not able to focus, you can never ever learn. The prophets of Allah, were made to focus. And this is something that we have to do as well. And what is necessary for that, you have to control your naps, you have to put your phone away, literally leave it in your bag, don't take it out when you get home, leave it there. So what if somebody calls not a big deal, if it's an emergency, they can get to me through some other way. Right? Because people do that, when they want to reach you, they reach you through some way or the other. So don't worry about the entire world at that time, focus on your work. Because if you focus for half an hour even, you can get so much out

00:08:34 --> 00:08:49

of that, as opposed to spending two, three hours in which we're constantly distracted. So if we want to learn something, remember, we must must focus, we must be uninterrupted at that time.

00:08:50 --> 00:09:41

One of the scholars he said that alquiler Ilma colloca that whole battle, that give knowledge all of yourself, if you want to learn something, dedicate everything of your steward, your time, your money, your energy, your mind, focus on it completely 100% and when you will do that, then you will be able to take Baba who some of it, then you will be able to take some of it. And if we dedicate only some of ourselves to learning, then how much will we get? Hardly anything. Hardly anything. And then we'll say, but I tried to memorize and I can't get it. I try to study but I cannot pass the test. There's two kinds of people, people who are focused on their studies. You know, like for

00:09:41 --> 00:10:00

instance, if you go to a university, let's say in the medical science building or something, and you will find students walking around the tree in their pajamas. Why they have no time to even dress up every day. All right. They have their books and their especially around exams.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:27

Um, time, you'll see that. But then there's some other people you see, they're dressed so perfectly, their hair is made their makeup, their jewelry, everything's coordinated their time goes into these things. So what happens, then what happens then they remain, you know, as those people who are only concerned about dressing up, and when it comes to their actual studies, they don't know anything, or they can't go much farther.

00:10:28 --> 00:11:14

Right? Recently, somebody was telling me about someone who's studying for a certain medical exams. And he says he has no time to exercise at all, because he's studying 14 hours a day, 20 hours a day, literally. And he's concerned about his health. And they go to the gym, no time, no time to even go to the gym. So this is what happens to people who become so focused on their work on their studies, everything else becomes secondary. Everything else becomes secondary, and that becomes a priority. And when they study like this, then they get something, then they get something out of their lives. Right. So Musa Sana, he was made to leave everything, imagine 30 nights, and that was turned to 40.

00:11:14 --> 00:11:17

He's there all alone, not even a single human being to talk to.

00:11:19 --> 00:11:29

Can you imagine not even a single human being to talk to 14 nights and 40 days, but this is what enabled him to receive the book of Allah.

00:11:30 --> 00:11:55

So what happened then we'll call a Musa and Musa alayhis salam said, meaning before he left for that appointment, he said Lee to his brother, who was his brother, Harun Harun Ernie Sana, and remember that How long are you selling was also made a profit, but Musa Hassan was the one in authority, because even if there are two people who are assigned a particular job, one should be given more authority than the other.

00:11:56 --> 00:11:56


00:11:58 --> 00:12:04

Because one person should be able to make the final decision. Yes.

00:12:06 --> 00:12:50

Exactly. To avoid disputes, even if there are two people one should be made the omit. Because then, you know, in courtesy, they will say, No, whatever you want, know, whatever you say. And then in their heart, they're like, oh, they don't have any respect for me. They don't want me to share this responsibility with them. So even if there's two people, one is made the amid, which is why in a family when it comes to husband and wife, both have obligations, both have rights both have responsibilities, but one has been given one, the raja over the other. Why? To make those final decisions that everyone will accept. So anywhere Musa Salam, he was given the leadership, but when

00:12:50 --> 00:13:38

he was leaving for this appointment for this very long appointment, what did he do? He said to his brother held on, Oh, love me feel called me. Take my place among my people. Meaning when I'm away, you are the leader, you are the one in charge over the Bani Israel. Accept this position, and be the leader lead them what else lead and reform, meaning whenever problems arise, seek solutions for them. And be careful while at the debate and do not follow Sabinal move sit in the way of the Mischief Makers, because in every group of people, there are some people who are good, obedient, compliant. And there are some people who are problematic in the sense that every now and then they

00:13:38 --> 00:14:26

will create problems. So musasa warned him that Be careful, do not follow the way of those who made problems. Be careful, be on your guard against them. And whenever problems arise, seek solutions for them. What do we learn over here, that when Musa alayhis salam went for something very, very, very important to meet Allah subhanaw taala to receive the Torah. He didn't leave the Bani Israel unattended. He didn't leave them on their own, that you take care of yourself. And basically, he didn't leave them to fend for themselves. He left and he appointed a leader, someone to do what he was doing.

00:14:28 --> 00:14:36

Because a person who takes his work seriously, who takes responsibility of his work?

00:14:38 --> 00:14:58

Then what happens is that whether he is there or not there, he wants to make sure that the work continues. He wants to make sure that no one suffers because of his absence. And the absence could be for a genuine reason.

00:14:59 --> 00:14:59

And if

00:15:00 --> 00:15:30

There is a person who just says one day, oh, I'm not coming. I'm not doing this not doing this anymore, then what does that show that they don't take ownership of their work, they don't take responsibility of the work that has been assigned to them. And because of them, others will suffer. Now, for example, if I were to say one day, I'm not coming. I'm too busy. I have to go to my friend's house. She had a baby, I have to go help her out. So sorry, I can't teach you guys.

00:15:32 --> 00:15:33

Is that acceptable?

00:15:34 --> 00:15:35

I should try that one day.

00:15:38 --> 00:15:43

If I did it, and imagine all of you come, and you find out there's no tafsir class at all.

00:15:44 --> 00:15:47

Why Sister namias, at her friend's house?

00:15:49 --> 00:15:51

Would that be acceptable at all? No.

00:15:52 --> 00:16:18

Why? Because then so many people, their time is going to get wasted. Their lesson is going to be affected. Correct. So if I don't show up, for some genuine reason, let's say there is an emergency. And because of that, I'm genuinely not able to come, let's say, I get a cold and I have no voice. And I can't come and teach you. Then in that case, what should I do?

00:16:20 --> 00:16:26

I should just tell sister Saudi instance, Sheila, you know what deal with it. I can't come to bed.

00:16:27 --> 00:16:28

What should I do?

00:16:30 --> 00:17:20

That we should make arrangements, find an alternate, okay, I am not able to come, but the work must continue. So I say it's okay. Inshallah, for two weekends, hopefully, the class will understand and they will listen to the recordings. Alright. So there has to be some kind of replacement. Or I say that, okay, so and so sister, inshallah she will come in teach the class. But if I say, I'm not coming, you deal with it. That's very, very irresponsible. So remember, every single person must take responsibility of their work, take it seriously. Follow the way of the prophets. And if you have to be absent because of genuine reason for a good cause, then please, don't just not show up in

00:17:20 --> 00:18:06

form from before, find a substitute, find a replacement before you go, no matter what kind of work you're doing any kind of work. You know, for example, if there's someone who gives you a ride, and one morning, you're waiting, they're not coming. They're not coming and you call them like, Oh, I'm not going today. What do you say you should have told me earlier, I could have made some other arrangements. Right. So what is necessary that we make other arrangements before we leave the work? And that's exactly what Musan isn't empty. And don't just assign someone please go and do this. Tell them what to do. Musar Islam explain to our donor Lisa what he was supposed to do us there, let the

00:18:06 --> 00:18:12

viewer submitted move sitting. Because if you just told him, You know what, just look out for the Bani Israel. What would he do?

00:18:13 --> 00:18:43

How was he supposed to know what he was supposed to do? So it's necessary that if we are not able to do our work, first of all, we find a replacement and secondly, we tell them what to do how to do their work properly, while Amma and when Jetta Musa Musa alayhis salam came, let me call Tina for our appointment. What can Lama who and he spoke to him who are Ogbu his Lord

00:18:44 --> 00:18:51

Musar in Islam, he went to Mount Dora for the appointment. And we learned from another place in the Quran that he came early.

00:18:52 --> 00:19:03

And Allah subhanaw taala asked him why he said, we're addicted to electrical of belittles I came to you quickly Allah so that you would be happy, because when you love someone, then you want to come to them quickly.

00:19:04 --> 00:19:20

So when he came Musa Alisa, Allah subhanaw taala spoke to him can no more abou now imagine Musa Sana heard Allah words sounds. Just imagine

00:19:21 --> 00:19:25

the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He was given the Quran

00:19:27 --> 00:19:28


00:19:29 --> 00:19:34

it was given to him through Gibreel Gibreel recited the Quran to him

00:19:35 --> 00:19:59

and Musa Al s&m who spoke to him directly. Allah subhanaw taala and this was not the first time Allah spoke to Moses was that Islam is called Kaleem Allah, the One whom Allah spoke to, because Allah subhanaw taala spoke to him at many, many occasions. So what can Nemo boo his Lord spoke to him? Now imagine if you can hear the sounds the words, aren't you curious?

00:20:01 --> 00:20:29

Aren't you curious about where those sounds are coming from? Who what that being looks like. So Musa Sinha out of that love for Allah, that curiosity Bala. He said rugby Oh my lord at any show me, please show me unzoom I look like to you I want to see you Please show yourself to me. This was not because Musa al salaam didn't believe he had a doubt about the existence of Allah not at all.

00:20:30 --> 00:20:42

You see, let me give you an example. If there's someone from your family or your friends who lives in a different city, different country, or let's say they're away, and you're talking to them, when you haven't seen them for a while, what do you do?

00:20:44 --> 00:20:45

Second, turn the video on please.

00:20:47 --> 00:20:50

Can you turn the video on please? Let's FaceTime.

00:20:51 --> 00:20:59

Why? Because when you love them, you don't want to just hear them you want to see them. Right? You want to see them? Has it ever happened?

00:21:01 --> 00:21:08

Yeah, all the time. That happens with me all the time. My dad, he insists, turn the video on I want to see the kids.

00:21:09 --> 00:22:06

So this is natural that you want to see the one whom you are listening to. And you want to see the one whom you love. So most artists around requested Allah please I want to see you. So Allah, Allah, He said, Linda, Ronnie, you can't see me. You cannot see me. This doesn't mean that Allah subhanaw taala cannot be seen by people. Because Allah did not say learn hula I cannot be seen. Rather he said, You cannot see me which means that it is possible to see Allah however you with the limited capacity that you have the human body that you have right now, with that you are not able to see Allah. And also Allah subhanaw taala is our lien is great. And seeing Allah is a privilege. It is a

00:22:06 --> 00:22:57

privilege being able to see a lot. And this privilege is granted to who those who prove themselves worthy of this privilege. When where do they prove themselves worthy in this life, if they live a life of obedience, then Allah subhanaw taala will privilege such people on the day of judgment by enabling them to see him and if a person lives the life of heedlessness of sin, being far from Allah, then such people they wouldn't be able to see Allah on the Day of Judgment. In the Quran we learn would you Yama, Eden, now we will in our behalf. Now there are some faces that they will be very happy, glowing. Why? Because there'll be singing Allah there'll be seeing their Lord. In a

00:22:57 --> 00:23:09

hadith we learn the prophets of Latson once he was sitting with his companions, full moon, and he said that on the Day of Judgment, you will be able to see Allah as easily as you see this moon

00:23:10 --> 00:23:36

as easily as you see this moon lasts too long Munna in another nourish Allah Tada Hoonah that you won't find any difficulty you won't have any confusion in seeing Allah. But there is a condition and what is that, that Do not be overcome in the matter of two prayers, which prayers Fajr and Rasul. So if a person

00:23:37 --> 00:23:54

has a habit of praying Fudger regularly on time, and are still regularly on time, then on the day of judgment, He will see Allah she will see Allah and if a person has a habit of sleeping through but you're

00:23:56 --> 00:24:03

sleeping through further delaying rasa to the point of missing it literally, then that person might be deprived.

00:24:04 --> 00:24:54

They might be deprived. So mozarella Salam, he wanted to see Allah Allah told him you can't see me right now. But to satisfy mozarella, sunnah a Allah subhanaw taala showed to him how and why it was not possible for him to see Allah subhanaw taala said, Well, I can but only look at illegible to the mountain, look at the mountain. For in so if it's the kava, it remains stable Magana, who in its place for Salford and soon Torani you will see me if the mountain remains in its place, then you will be able to see me because the mountain is bigger and tougher and stronger than a human being. Right? So if the mountain has the strength to withstand Allah subhanaw taala is no more than okay,

00:24:54 --> 00:24:59

you might even have a chance. But if the mountain cannot withstand the news of Allah

00:25:00 --> 00:25:05

than you with your little eyes don't have any chance of seeing Allah

00:25:06 --> 00:25:55

in this world in this life, this is why the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when he went for the ascension, the night journey, and Allah subhanaw taala spoke to him given the gift of the prayers. Later on, someone asked him that, did you see your Lord? And he said, No, hold on. I know who he is known how can I see him? Meaning I don't have the capacity to see Allah this limited human body. We don't have that capacity. So Philomathean when the Gela he gassed, he appeared that July is from the root letters Jeem Lambo, and gel one is basically to throw light, okay to throw light and the agenda is to cast one's light. So the Gela meaning Allah subhanaw taala he cast some of his light he

00:25:55 --> 00:26:07

manifested some of his light were on the mountain for Lynmouth agenda or Boolean gerbil on the mountain what happened to the mountain Darla who he made it that

00:26:08 --> 00:27:00

level that calf mu letters dial calf calf, that is to crumble break crush something so that it is leveled, leveled, flattened completely. So that come in with cook it was the mountain was flattened. The mountain could not bear could not withstand some of the newer of Allah subhanaw taala. So if the mountain was not able to then the eyes of Musa Arya Sana it would be impossible for them to see even a little of the light of Allah subhanaw taala so what happened because of that mountain flattening to the ground? Well hello and he fell Musa Musa listen I'm sorry, unconscious, sorry, soldering cough Sarika from the same root is used for Thunderbolt loud blast, so sorry, is to fall unconscious

00:27:00 --> 00:27:54

because of some loud blast. Okay, that a person who could not bear that sound or that blast as a result of that he fell unconscious of Musa and Islam he fell unconscious Philomath and when a file called, he awoke he regained consciousness of Alka he recovered from the root letters, fat well off, to recover after sickness to regain consciousness. So when he recovered, Paula he said, Subhanak perfect. Are you Allah, taboo to elago, I repent to you were an Owen Mini and I am the first of the believers, meaning he apologized for making an inappropriate request. Because we believe that yes, Allah subhanaw taala can do anything, everything, it's possible for Allah. But there are some

00:27:54 --> 00:28:34

requests some questions, or rather some demands that should never be made. Because they are inappropriate. They are unbefitting. It does not fit your position to make such a request to make such a demand. And it does not befit the Majesty of Allah that you ask him for such things. Like for instance, if there's an elderly person, also very knowledgeable, someone who has a great position in the family, if you're around them, and you ask them, Can you please pass me a tissue?

00:28:35 --> 00:29:20

And your mother, she gives you that look? What are you doing? How dare you ask them because it is so disrespectful? Correct? It is considered very, very disrespectful. Or, for instance, children, you know, sometimes they ask for anything. And what happens? There are grandparents that have come and the children ask, What did you bring me? And you're like, be quiet. What are you saying? We don't ask such questions. We don't make such demands, right? Or you go to somebody's house, and the children say can I have some juice? Like just have the water that has served you? Right? So you might say what's the big deal? But the thing is that certain questions, it does not be fit a person

00:29:20 --> 00:29:59

to ask them certain demands, it does not defeat a person to make them. So likewise Musa Islam he realized I shouldn't have asked this. This is why he apologized. He repented and he said I'm the first of the believers I've no doubt at all, not at all, I believe with conviction with certainty. Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said er Musa almost in the indeed I is fluffy to God I have chosen you aren't a nurse above all people how btw Salah tea with my messages Wahby Kalami and with my words, because Allah subhanaw taala gave Musar to sunnah.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:55

messages, meaning certain commands, the Scripture, the Torah. And he also spoke to him Qalam Allah spoke to him. So I have chosen you, I've gifted you with these blessings for who so take mad that which they took I gave you, whatever I've given you, hold on to it, what coalminer Shaqiri and be of those who are grateful. What do we learn here, that when a servant is given knowledge of Allah's book, Allah has Qalam Allah's Rousselet, then he should realize that Allah has chosen him above other servants. So he should never, ever leave this blessing. And he should always remain grateful for it. Because this blessing, no matter how long a person has added for, or no matter how long it

00:30:55 --> 00:31:46

has been since he was given it, this blessing never fades out. This blessing never becomes too old to forget the blessing of hedaya the blessing of Quran the blessing of Allah's message, you might say, yeah, it's been two years I'm very grateful. 100 Allah but yeah, what's the big deal? No, every single day, we should be grateful for this blessing. In fact, we should increase in our gratitude. Because with every new verse that we learn, we are being given more and more blessings and the more blessings a person gets, he should be more grateful for it. This is why Allah's paneled artist has forbidden Africa failure for who, because of it, they should be happy, because who are higher

00:31:46 --> 00:31:57

mileage Marilyn, it is the best of that which the people gather. Look at debonair. And we wrote, notice, we wrote who wrote who wrote

00:31:58 --> 00:31:59

who does we refer to?

00:32:01 --> 00:32:52

Who does we refer to? Allah subhanaw taala. Allah subhanaw taala himself wrote low for him meaning for Musa said, I'm Phil Anwar, in the tablets. Allah has a plural of low and low is basically a hard, wide, flat piece of something, whether it is of wood or some metal, or some stone hard. It's tough. It's wide, all right, and it's flat, could even be of a bone. Because long time ago, people would use camel bones because certain bones are very wide. They would use camel bones in order to write on. So Musa alayhis salam was given the torah, in a written form. The Quran was given to the Prophets of Allah seven how orally, right Gibreel came and recited the Quran to the Prophet

00:32:52 --> 00:33:05

sallallahu sallam, but the Torah, it was given in a written form to Musala sunnah. And what was it written on? Not paper, but rather tablets, what material were those tablets of Allah who Arlynn

00:33:06 --> 00:33:52

alo Arlo, but you see, imagine there's a rock, okay? And something is engraved in it, engraved some writing, it's going to be preserved for much, much longer. Right? So Musar the son was given the torah in that way. And Allah himself wrote the Torah. So aka Taberna Allah who fill Allah He, we wrote for him in the tablets, men cliche in everything, doesn't mean every single thing was written in the Allah know, every single thing that was relevant and important to the Bani Israel, meaning everything that was necessary for them to know. Like in the Quran, we learn about everything that is necessary for us to know.

00:33:53 --> 00:34:32

Right? Every beneficial matter, we learn about it in the Quran, whether it is about family life, or it is about inheritance, or it is about divorce, or it is about money. So many things we learn about them from where from the Quran. So likewise, in the Torah, also, every beneficial relevant matter was written motor law and admonishing meaning and advice. Marilla is basically such advice that motivates a person to do something, you know, what is that you just tell someone, you should do this, this and this, and this. Now go do it.

00:34:33 --> 00:34:59

And the other is that you tell them, You should do this, because this is the benefit, you should do this because this is how it's going to help you. You should do this because you know, it's going to make you happier, or you should refrain from this because these are the harms. So when you tell someone in this way, then they're motivated to act. So the law that was given to the Bani Israel, remember, it wasn't just dry. It wasn't dry laws. Do this

00:35:00 --> 00:35:20

and don't do this rather it had moment Allah and it motivated them. What of Ceylon and a detail luckily che in for everything, meaning every detail that was necessary for the Bani Israel to know. It was written in the Torah. So Allah told Musala salam for Hoda. So hold it, take it before what and with strength? How?

00:35:22 --> 00:35:28

Hold your juice? Pick up your just? How would you take it with strength? How?

00:35:29 --> 00:36:22

Okay, it's basically in two ways, in the history sense. And in the morning, we sense her see sense in the physical sense. If you're holding a book with strength, meaning you're holding on to it firmly. So then what happens, you don't drop it. Right, you won't lose it, it won't get ruined. But if you are not holding on to the book, strongly with firmness, then what will happen, you're holding it, and you get sleepy and what happens? It falls, right, or you're not holding on to it firmly, properly. And what happens, something dirty falls on it, some waterfalls on it. And as a result, whatever you had written is now smeared, you can't read anything that's ever happened to you. Like

00:36:22 --> 00:36:31

you've written something, a lot of stuff. And let's say you were crying, okay. And those tears they dropped and everything is much you can't read it anymore.

00:36:32 --> 00:36:56

So anyway, he sends hold on to the book with strength, with firmness, meaning don't drop it. This Adam must be shown to the book of Allah. And in the mind, we sense hold on to it with firmness, meaning, hold on to it, and don't leave it. Hold on to it. And don't leave it. Like for example, if you have your phone

00:36:58 --> 00:37:44

and you love it, and you realize that it's very, very important to you, then where is it, it's in your pocket, it's in your bag, it's in your hand, you don't just leave it anywhere, right? So it means hold on to the book and do not leave it, add hair to the book, do what the book tells you follow the commands that have been given to you in it, refrain from the prohibitions that are mentioned in it, hold on to the book. Because if you leave it, if you drop it, if you break your connection with it, then you're gone, then you've lost your religion. Hold on to the book. And a person can only hold on to the book when he has understood it. Because if he doesn't understand it,

00:37:44 --> 00:38:23

how can you implement it. So for holding the hair, because and in order to hold on to the book, sometimes we have to hold on to the pen. Because a show me your pen. Some people don't have their pens in their hands, or their pencils. And if you're not riding property, then what happens you get sleepy and then later on, you find it so many scribbled on you're just so hold on to the book with firmness, meaning understand it, learn it, review it and then implement it. Remain with it adhere to it. Don't forget it for those five days in the middle.

00:38:24 --> 00:38:32

Because if you only pick up your Quran on Saturday and Sunday, and five days you don't pick it up at all. Then what will happen when you come back next Saturday and Sunday

00:38:33 --> 00:38:58

you will come back with a blank slate you will have forgotten everything. So Musa Islam was advised for who the * buco what and what mode and order comarca your people tell your people also the Bani Israel that yeah, who they should take the axe anyhow with its best tell the people to hold on to the most excellent parts of the book. Now isn't the entire book. Good?

00:39:00 --> 00:39:05

Question. I'm asking you. Isn't the entire book that Allah has given? Good?

00:39:06 --> 00:39:18

Yes, every single ayah every single word is good. But why does Allah say tell the people to hold on to the best parts of it doesn't mean that there are parts of it that are not best.

00:39:19 --> 00:39:59

Yes. You see, there's two kinds of verses in the book. We learned about it and sort of earlier one, some are more come out and the other are more the Shabbiha maraca math or are those verses that are related to you in the sense that you have to do something the command has been given to you. It is relevant to you it applies to you. It has to do everything with you you have to apply it it has to do with your Amal basically okay? And there are other parts of the book which are not directly applying to you, in the sense that

00:40:00 --> 00:40:43

They don't have much to do with your armor. They're necessary for us to know for our iman, they're important things that Allah has informed us of. But when it comes to armor, they're not relevant. So for example, in the Quran, we learn about the ASA, the staff of Musala, sunnah. And if a person says, Oh, that staff was five feet long, and it was two inches wide, and the other say no, no, it's not possible for it to be two inches wide, it must have been one and a half inches wide. And it must have been four feet long. And others said that it was a particular tree. And they say no, no, it wasn't made of wood, it was of this, it was of that? What benefit is this discussion? Is it of any

00:40:43 --> 00:41:30

benefit? No. First of all, can you ever be sure about the details of that stuff? Never. Why? Because you have no means of finding out you have no means of being sure about it. Secondly, even if you were to know the exact details of that alpha, how is it going to improve your pears? How is it going to improve your charity? Does it have anything to do with your actions? No, it doesn't. Now, what happens is that sometimes we get distracted, and we start focusing on those matters, which don't have much to do with our armor. Like for instance, sometimes we just focus on the words. Oh, look at this word, such a beautiful expression. Amazing. And look at the way the sentence structure is. And

00:41:30 --> 00:41:40

this word, this is what it means. It's good to know this stuff. And trust me, I've gone through this. It's good to know the stuff. But does it apply to your armor?

00:41:41 --> 00:42:28

If it's going to help you understand better so that your actions can improve? Very good. But if it's not going to help you improve in your actions than that knowledge is what? It's a burden. It's a burden. So our focus when studying the Quran should not just be to appreciate the language and the words, but it should be to do something to bring a change in our lives to become a better person. I'm not saying that stop memorizing the word to word no, that's very important. Memorize that you should know the root words you should know the singular plurals you should know the meaning of the word the depth of it, because it helps you understand better once you understand then you can

00:42:28 --> 00:42:38

implement but understanding the text only should not be your objective. If that is your only objective and there is a big problem.

00:42:39 --> 00:43:18

Our objective should be understand and implement. Because the Bani Israel, there are scholars what problem do they fall into this problem? They have books and books. Okay, discussions over what is permissible and what is not. And there's a lot of discussion over that details of it. Details of God details of the prophets details off things that are irrelevant without any knowledge without any knowledge. And because of that, they have a lot of information. But when it comes to formal zero

00:43:20 --> 00:43:44

when it comes to camel zero, so for instance, if we want to study the Quran, and we want to improve our citation, so we focus a lot on improving our with wheat, we learn the rules, okay, we strive to get an A Jazza. But remember, that's not the only purpose of learning the Quran, you should learn to recite well, and you should also learn to implement

00:43:46 --> 00:43:54

because the Quran was not sent down just to be recited. It was sent down, to be recited and to be acted upon.

00:43:55 --> 00:44:45

So the Bani Israel were told that they should yet hold or be a Sunni Ha, they should hold on to the arson part of the book, meaning from every eye, they should try to take out they should try to get to what they can implement, what they can apply, every if we must relate with ourselves, what can I do? How can I learn from this? How can I become a better person because of this? So od comm Allah says, soon I will show you, Donald faster pain, the home of the sinful meaning in your journeys. Now, you will see you will come across the homes of the people who were sinful meaning the ruins of the people of the past who got busy and just making their dog in this making their homes and who

00:44:45 --> 00:44:48

neglected the commands of Allah.

00:44:49 --> 00:44:59

Because when Allah gives his book To some people, and they leave the book, and they just busy themselves in making their homes, decorating their homes looking after their homes, and because of that they don't learn the book.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:10

They don't revise the book. They don't implement the book. Then such people become deserving of Allah's wrath. May Allah protect us. Let's listen to the recitation. Well Wow
