Lesson number 161 Surah Baha is number 77 to 104 what occurred and certainly our Hanaa we revealed Isla Musa to Musa alayhis salam,

00:00:15 --> 00:01:01

and that a city travel at night, very buddy with my servants, leave by night, leave where? Leave what? Egypt. In the previous ayat we learned about how Musa alayhis salam he was given prophethood he was equipped with miracles. And he was sent to fiddle around with two messages. And what were they first and foremost, there is only one God worthy of worship. And who is that? Allah subhanaw taala. And secondly, that fit our own should not oppress the Bani Israel and let them go. He should not enslave the children of Israel and he should let them go. Let them go where to their home.

00:01:03 --> 00:01:48

So what happened Mossad escena when he came, and he delivered this message to fit our own, fit our own, he tried to detract him from his goal several times by asking questions that would cause fitna that would cause people to become upset with Musar Lisanna controversial issues he brought up but Musa alayhis salam he stayed on topic, he conveyed the message for our own, he challenged him he said, Okay, if you show us your magic, we will show us our magic he called the miracles magic. So for our own, he collected all of his magician, skilled magicians, and he brought them to show their magic in competition with Musa alayhis salaam. So a place was fixed time was fixed. And Musa al

00:01:48 --> 00:02:20

Islam confidently he went, and before the magicians displayed their magic Musar listen, and he warned them very sternly, he warned them. And what happened? The Magicians showed their magic mozarella salon through his staff, he showed his miracle. And his staff turned into a snake that ate up all of the magic that the magicians had produced. What was the reaction of the magicians, they surrendered? Immediately, because you see a person who is a master of something,

00:02:21 --> 00:03:03

they can tell what is original, and what is not original. Right? They can tell what is part of what they do and what is not. So for instance, those magicians, they were expert magicians, they weren't ordinary magicians. So when they saw what most artists and um, did they knew that it had surpassed the magic that they knew it had surpassed it by all means. This is similar to how there were some Arabs, their poetry was amazing. But when they heard a few verses of the Quran, they said, You know what, that's it, we're not going to open our mouth again. Because if we open our mouth, and we try to say any verses of poetry will be embarrassing ourselves, because the Quran has completely

00:03:03 --> 00:03:47

surpassed any level of poetry. You know, this is similar to how if you're playing a game, all right on your phone, and you have, you know, the best score, okay? And then your friend one day says, You know what, I'm really good at this game. Let me play as well. All right, and they play that game on your phone and they beat your highest score. Are you going to bother playing in competition with them? You're gonna be like, You know what, I give up. I give up. I admit my failure. I accept that you have one. So the magicians they completely surrendered. They said, This is not magic. And what Musa has brought is definitely the truth and for our own greatest fear. greatest fear came to be

00:03:47 --> 00:04:11

true. And what was that fear that his people were going to believe in? musasa? So imagine the 1000s of magicians they believed fit around instantly threaten them? How dare you believe in Musa I am going to kill every single one of you. And he didn't just say kill? How did he say that? I'm going to cut off your hands and feet from opposite sides and I'm going to crucify you.

00:04:12 --> 00:04:53

But the magician's did they give up? No. Because once a person recognizes the truth, and he truly believes in it, then Allah gives him firmness and stability, that no matter what he faces, no matter what difficulty comes his way he does not give up and and this was a great lesson for the Muslims who were being persecuted in Mecca. Because you see below the law or know how he was being persecuted, or it's Manuel de la Mourinho, so many companions who were off noble background, but still, they were being beaten. They were being physically abused. Women men, nobody was spared whether they were rich, or they were poor. There were slaves or whoever no believer was being spared

00:04:53 --> 00:05:00

even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was considered one of the most noble men of Makkah. What was Abu Lahab doing?

00:05:00 --> 00:05:40

to him what was a Buddha Hall doing to him. But this story served as a great motivation for the oppressed believers, that you think what you're facing is bad. Think about what the magician's faced. Look at how they were persecuted. And for their own, literally, he killed every single one of them. He killed every single one of them. And this is why the companions have said that these people, these men, they were magicians in the morning. And by the end of the day, they were martyrs. They were martyrs. You see, they came in the morning, competing with Musar Lisanna, challenging the Prophet of Allah, in opposition to the Prophet of Allah. And by the end of the day, look at how

00:05:40 --> 00:06:21

their fate completely changed. They died in the way of Allah. They gave their lives in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. Now after this incident, Musa alayhis salam remained in Egypt for several years. And that portion is not mentioned in these verses, because that detail is mentioned elsewhere. And when he stayed in Egypt for several years for all and was given many warnings, one, you know, warning after the other. And we learned about that earlier how for instance, the water turned to blood and how one infestation literally after another right frogs and lice and bugs and locusts and so on and so forth. But what happened each time there was a problem for our own knew

00:06:21 --> 00:06:26

that he had to go to Musa so he would go to Santa Santa and he would say you make dua to your Lord.

00:06:27 --> 00:07:10

Ask him to remove this affliction from us. If it's removed, we will believe in you. And we will do whatever you tell us. We will let the Bani Israel go. So Musa alayhis salam he would make dua, the affliction will be removed and when Musa al Assad would go to fit our home okay let the Bani Israel go you'd say what what? What are you talking about? I know what you're saying. He would completely go against his word. And this happened numerous times. So then what happened? Allah subhanaw taala said to musante center and that is what is mentioned in this IO Welaka o Hanaa Illa Musa we revealed to Musa that don't wait any more now. You don't need fit our owns permission you don't need fit our

00:07:10 --> 00:07:48

own to let the bunny is right you'll go to set them free. No. Now fit our own time is over his chances are over. Now you must take the bunny is slightly away from here. And how do you do that? An acai berry buddy s3 from the word Israel. And what does this mean to travel in the night so leave at night don't leave during the day in broad daylight when everybody's watching you know, secretly at night when our own and his people are sleeping, the Bani Israel should leave Egypt quietly. And notice the word that is used over here for Bani Israel, everybody My servants.

00:07:49 --> 00:08:01

Why? Because the people who believed in Musa alayhis salam were not just the Bani Israel. There were also some people from the Egyptians, the people of Iran who had believed in Musa alayhis salam

00:08:02 --> 00:08:45

you know that there were some people from the family of our own from the locals who had believed in Musa they send them some of them were conceding their faith and some of them had publicized it. So for instance, the wife of her own even she had believed Allah Allah whether she migrated with Masada cinema or not, but certainly she believed she was actually killed by her own so she didn't get to migrate right but anyway there were people from the people that are on who believed in Musar listen I'm so unnecessary very birdie leave with them during the night fugly beloved whom and when you leave with them fabric then you strike love home for them. But econ about were filled by hurry in

00:08:45 --> 00:09:32

the sea. And this path is going to be ye by sun dry it's not going to be wet because the direction in which Musa alayhis salam had to travel to he was basically headed to Philistine all right and on the way obviously there was a sea Red Sea now Musar is that I'm installed that when you reach there what will happen? What do you have to do? fugly blah home buddy icon for grip? Literally Baba means to hit the strike but you know that the word Baba is not limited to that it gives many meanings. So far glib over here gives a sense of make all right. Make for them filled battery in the sea. Meaning a bath but you can feel and this Pareek should be yours. Yes from the root letters. Yeah by seen and

00:09:32 --> 00:09:41

yes is that which is dry. What is dry that which is not wet? Without any water. It's not wet at all. It's not damp.

00:09:42 --> 00:09:59

Now this is amazing. mozarella said when he reaches the sea, and remember that the bunny is fine had left in the night as the morning approached for our own and his people realize that the Bani Israel had escaped. So what happened? They pursued the Bani Israel at you in the Quran we learned machine

00:10:00 --> 00:10:43

Repeat as the morning was coming in. They were also going after the Bani Israel in order to catch them in order to stop them from escaping. So now there came a point where Musar the sentiment of Bani Israel are before them is the Red Sea. And behind them is the army of their own. All right. And Musa alayhis salam is standing there and the Bani Israel is panicking. All right, they're panicking and this is mentioned in very explicit terms in the Quran that how they said that we have been overtaken, we are doomed, we are ruined. You know, we can go nowhere and behind us as Finneran we're done with so mozarella Sam, he said color in the Mario Obi say the no way for your own cannot

00:10:43 --> 00:11:10

overtake us because with me as my Lord and He will guide me, He will show us the way. And Allah did show them the way. What was most artists and I'm told throw your staff into the river. And when he did that, the water parted. And when it parted, there was literally a bath. There was literally a road through the water that led the Bani Israel from one side to the other. And this path Allah says unibus, dry,

00:11:11 --> 00:11:12


00:11:13 --> 00:11:54

And this is why it was a miracle. Because if there is mud somewhere, all right, and the water is removed from there, that mud is going to be wet. Have you ever gone to the beach? What happens when the tide is high? Alright, when the water is far, the sand is covered with the water right with the waves. But as they withdraw, then what happens? The sand is still wet. All right, it's wet. And sometimes it's wet for days. But this is amazing how the water parted and the bath in the middle was yep us let the hot half of Daraa can he is told you shall not fear the rock. What does that mean?

00:11:55 --> 00:12:40

This is from the word Iraq to catch up to perceive. All right, to attain literally the Word doc is used for a rope, which is tied with another rope. So that one is able to reach the depths of the water. So for instance, divers as they're going down, down, down, alright, they reach the max. So what do they have to do they have to lengthen they have to extend their rope. So it's the rope that helps them go deeper and deeper. Alright, so with the rope, they managed to reach their destination, their goal. So let the half of the rock and you shall not fear being overtaken while at OSHA, nor will you be afraid. Notice the harmful Daksha both mean?

00:12:41 --> 00:13:02

Both mean what fear, right docshell Has she has she has to be afraid of the enormity of something, the magnitude of something. So you will not be afraid of what? of drowning? Because imagine you see a wall of water on your right at a wall of water on your left.

00:13:03 --> 00:13:13

I mean, just the sight of that would instill fear in your heart. Have you ever seen huge tides and then you see people surfing? You wonder what are they thinking?

00:13:14 --> 00:13:42

Right? You know that man looks so small compared to that tight. It's amazing. So you will not have any fear as you go through because you will not drown. You will not be overtaken, Allah will protect you. Now, this story was a reassurance for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because even the prophets have a lot of them and the Muslims in Makkah, they were surrounded by their enemy. They were living in the midst of their enemy.

00:13:44 --> 00:13:53

And in this story was great hope for them. That Allah saved Musa al Islam and the Bani Israel and Allah will save you to

00:13:54 --> 00:14:21

so you don't fear latter half of the rockin wala Tasha. You don't fear your enemy. You don't be afraid that something terrible is going to happen. No you do your part. And Allah will do his part. You continue in your way. You continue in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala you continue in your worship of Allah alone, and Allah will protect you from every possible danger and harm.

00:14:22 --> 00:14:59

That is his responsibility. So leave that to him leave your affair to Allah entrusted to him. He protected Musa He will protect you to for at bound fit or Onew so fit our own pursued them but as Allah had promised for our own would never overtake the bunny is what you for at bow who fit our own and for our own did not come alone he came Did you know The with his armies with the soldiers falesha home and for our own he followed the Bani Israel right into the sea. And what happened as fit our own reach the middle of the sea for Russia home so it covered

00:15:00 --> 00:15:46

Dum Mina yummy from the sea mat that which Lushy your home it covered them for washy your home mineral yummy mouthwash your home, you know when you hear the word Sefolosha home mineralium So it covered them from the sea you wonder what covered them malattia whom that which covered them, meaning exactly what you think covered them. And what was that water? It completely, definitely certainly covered them. So all of them were drowned what Ebola fit our own Okoma who Ebola he misled goofing around with your own, who did he mislead coma who his people, he misled his people, Wilma Harada, and he did not guide them.

00:15:47 --> 00:16:06

The see that turned into a dry path for Musa alayhis salam and his people, the same C envelop for their own and his people. And Allah says, fit our own, misled his people. He did not guide them in this world. He misled them how he led them straight into the water.

00:16:07 --> 00:16:51

He led them straight into drowning. And this is what he was doing to his people in religious terms as well. He was not guiding them. He was misleading them wama Harada he led his people into their own destruction, because he himself was drowned in misguidance. Right. So those who followed him, they ended up in the same way. Those who followed him, he took them along as well. In his misguidance in his air were Ebola fear oh no coma who woulda had. And this also shows the people of Egypt, the followers of our own. They obeyed fit our own without question, without reason without even using their mind without even thinking. So we really have to see who is it that we're

00:16:51 --> 00:17:15

following. Just because someone is moving their right leg doesn't mean we have to do the same thing. Just because someone is dressing up in one way or saying a certain word or watching something or going somewhere doesn't mean we have to imitate them. No, we don't have to. The only person we imitate is Wu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because He is our example.

00:17:16 --> 00:17:21

And the people today, we don't need to follow everything that they're doing. We need to use our mind.

00:17:23 --> 00:17:47

And especially when it comes to the matters of religion, we have to be very careful who is it that we're following? What abunda for our own Okoma Hua just because someone is famous or just because someone has a big following doesn't mean we have to go after every word they say. Just because someone has a lot of influence and power and control and leadership. That doesn't mean we become blind.

00:17:48 --> 00:18:18

fit our own. He was a person of power. He was a person of great influence and his people follow them blindly. So above enough in our own Okoma who was Mr. hodda and he led them to their destruction in this life and He will also lead them to hellfire on the day of judgment and solitude. We have learned about this, that Jaco coma who yomo ki Emirati for over the Hoonah he will lead his people on the day of judgment where to hellfire he will bring them to hellfire.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:44

Then Allah's parents are the addresses the Bani Israel. Yeah, Bani Israel, all children of Israel eel, God and j. Now come, certainly we saved you. We delivered you. We rescued you. From who? Menardo we confirm your enemy. You could never have saved yourselves, We saved you. Because if you think about it, the bunny is finally living in Egypt. Could they have escaped?

00:18:45 --> 00:19:34

I mean, if they tried to do this on their own, would they have survived? If Allah subhanaw taala did not open the sea for them if they were not under the leadership of Musa Alison and could they have escaped? No way. So who save them? Allah? Allah is the One who sent Masada Sena Allah is the one who opened the sea for them. Yeah, Bani Israel and J Nico Mina al do we come? There was no way you could have done this yourself. Allah is the one who saved you. Well, where are they now come and we made an appointment with you. Meaning we made an appointment we made a word an appointment, can you meaning for your sake for your guidance? And where was this appointment Janee bottle on the side of

00:19:34 --> 00:19:37

the Mount tool which side alignment the right one?

00:19:38 --> 00:19:59

And this is where Musa Sinha was given. prophethood so we see that Musar listen and when he crossed the sea that our own was drowned, but he is slightly ill was free. Musa al salaam, he was to go to the mount Dora. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala had asked him to come there. Why for the sake of the Bani Israel

00:20:00 --> 00:20:07

Do you remember we learned earlier that when the bunny is slightly across the sea, they saw some people worshipping idols?

00:20:08 --> 00:20:10

What did they say to Mozart? Islam?

00:20:12 --> 00:20:22

Yes, yeah Musa idre Lana Illa Han come Allahu Allah or Musa make an idol for us just as these people have idols.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:56

Can you imagine? The buddy Israa eel had been living amongst the Egyptians and the Egyptians were what kind of people what was the religion? They were polytheistic nation, right? They practice polytheism, multiple gods idols, idol worship was common. And when they crossed the sea, and they saw those people, worshipping idols, they were so impressed. They said, we want to do this too. Again, not using their mind just copying others, just because something looks good. They wanted to do it as well. So what do you think the Bani Israel needed?

00:20:58 --> 00:21:30

What do you think they needed? Before they needed shelter? And before they needed a place that they could call home? What was most essential for them? Guidance, knowledge, right? Because they were steeped in ignorance. They had forgotten the basics of their religion even. You know, for example, if you see people who call themselves Muslim, all right, and they want to worship an idol. What would you say? Are you really Muslim?

00:21:31 --> 00:21:59

Like seriously? Are you guys muslim? Because what is the sign of a Muslim? What is something basic about a Muslim that he does not worship? Idols? This is one of the fundamental things of our religion, though hate. This is what sets us apart from every other faith, belief in Allah worship of Allah alone. So if a Muslim forgets this principle, what do you realize about that Muslims that he's forgotten the basics even? He doesn't know even the basics of the deen

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

and you will be amazed at how many Muslims are there today that are like this.

00:22:07 --> 00:22:23

You will be amazed. We think every Muslim knows La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah, every Muslim knows that you're supposed to worship Allah alone and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is our messenger and we follow Him and we obey Him. We take it for granted. But there are so many Muslims that don't know this basic fact even

00:22:24 --> 00:22:35

many go to the Muslim world. And you will be shocked. Go talk to little children, and you will be shocked. They don't even know La ilaha illallah they don't know that.

00:22:36 --> 00:22:51

You ask them what is Salah? They have no clue. You ask them who's Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam they have no idea. They don't know. You ask them about one thing they tell you something else confused jumbled up. Even the basics are forgotten.

00:22:52 --> 00:23:07

And there are many Muslim populations that are like that. So the Bani Israel in were in a similar state, what did they need hedaya knowledge. Allah rescued them. He saved their lives, but now they needed Daya knowledge as well.

00:23:09 --> 00:23:32

And this is a reason why the first thing that musalla salaam was supposed to do once the bunny is trying were free. Go to mount Dora and receive divine guidance in the form of Torah. So well, where are the intercom? We made a promise for you we appointed for you for your sake for your guidance journey will total Amen.

00:23:34 --> 00:23:40

And meanwhile, while they were in the desert, because when they crossed the sea, they were in the desert out in the open.

00:23:41 --> 00:23:59

And like I mentioned earlier, before, even they needed homes and food and shelter they needed hidayah right. But Allah subhanaw taala did not deprive them from shelter and food. When Zelner alaykum and we sent down upon you alumina, mon was Salwa and Salwa.

00:24:00 --> 00:24:07

So while they were still in the desert Musar listen and was gone. To receive the Torah, the Bani Israel, we're not left hungry.

00:24:09 --> 00:24:19

without any shelter, No, Allah sent to them man and Salwa food from the sky was sent there were served. Just to clarify, so when

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

the first time, he did not have

00:24:24 --> 00:24:25

like he wasn't granted.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:59

He was given prophethood but he was not given the thought at that time. Right. So the first appointment had mount to where Musar listen and went, which we learned about earlier when he saw the fire, and he wanted to go. So he went there he was given prophethood he was given responsibility, but he was not given the torah at that point. All right. Now he went got the Bani Israel freed after several years, and now he's supposed to go back to mount Dora and then he is given the torah. You know what shows to us that the Bani Israel when they were in Egypt, they couldn't really follow the

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

Law, which is why the law was not given.

00:25:03 --> 00:25:20

You understand? This is similar to how when the prophets of Allah Islam was in Mecca, were the Muslims given the law with respect to money or inheritance or such things, no, all of that came later when the Muslims were free in Medina, they could practice the law that's when it was given.

00:25:22 --> 00:26:06

And over here what is mentioned when is the narrowly called mundo a Salwa here, only Munden, Salah is mentioned but earlier, we learned that when they were in the desert, even the clouds were sent to shade them. Right. And food was sent to them. And man, it refers to something sweet. And Sunhwa refers to some kind of meat and the closest thing that the scholars have come up with the Sunwell refers to quails, roasted quails, so a small bird, which is a delicacy, the meat is tender. Alright, so Minoa, Salwa Kulu, all of you eat mental Uberti of the good things, Mara's Aachener calm which We have provided you, when Allah has given you a good thing, then use it, eat it, coulomb and play by

00:26:06 --> 00:26:59

tomorrow. xakanaxa not that the good food is sitting rotting away and you are filling yourself with junk. No, if Allah has given you good food, eat it, use it, benefit from it. What I thought Hello, and do not transgress fee there in do not transgress there in? How? How is it that a person exceeds the bounds of eating? Oh, when he already eats, right? Or when he hoards or when he keeps all the good food only for himself. You know, for instance, you go to a party or something and there's a whole lot of food at the table and you stand in a line and you go and you just fill your plate with food out of this fear that what if I don't get a chance to get seconds? So just take as much as you

00:26:59 --> 00:27:40

want. I mean, you look at the size of the plate, and you look at the size of the tummy and you wonder how is this going to go inside even? How is this food gonna fit inside? And it doesn't? It doesn't. Because most of it ends up in the garbage. You didn't eat yourself and you prevented others from eating it as well. Well, our total ofI do not transgress they're in the money is trying to we're specifically instructed that when the food comes down to you from the sky. Don't hoard it, don't keep it all for yourself and don't save any save any in the sense that for the next day or for later on. Don't take it greedily. Go ahead.

00:27:42 --> 00:28:20

Yes, because Allah says when zanla We sent down on human no Salah It was literally heavenly food. Because there were no kitchens there. It was the desert. Right? So it was heavenly food being sent to them. Bani Israel, very special people, Allah subhanaw taala really restored so many special favors on them. So many. So anyway, if there's free food, some people or food or anything, some people will take only as much as they need. And others. What do they do? You never know. You might never see it again. So just take whatever you can just stuffed everything into your bag.

00:28:21 --> 00:28:32

Really? Who thinks like this? Someone who does not have to work with someone who does not have trust in Allah, someone who doesn't have faith in Allah that if Allah has given me today, he will also give me tomorrow.

00:28:33 --> 00:28:58

So this is why just grab whatever, even if you don't need it, take it. Even if you don't need a ticket. You know, it's like if there's a store that is closing down, right? And they say that there might be a liquidation sale or something. And the sale is hardly 20% off. What do you see a lineup that is a mile long?

00:29:00 --> 00:29:03

A mile long, what are you saving? $5?

00:29:04 --> 00:29:38

Sometimes not even that a few cents. I was amazed. You know, I just accidentally happened to be in a store like this recently. And I genuinely I needed something from there. Not that I went because of the sale. I had one item to pick up. And when I saw the lineup, I said, You know what? I think I can go somewhere else. I can go somewhere else. I don't need to stand in a line like this where people are buying things that they don't even need. They don't even need because when you look at the trolleys you wonder, are you actually going to use all those diapers right now?

00:29:39 --> 00:30:00

Are you actually going to use up all of that toilet paper now? Why do you have to take 20 packs? Why do you have to take five bags? Seriously? How much money are you going to save? Similarly when it comes to food just because it's free, we take greedily grab, grab, grab, whatever, whatever you can, even if you don't want to eat it, just stay

00:30:00 --> 00:30:06

You can't just take it, and then throw it away, don't let others eat it, throw it. But don't let others eat it, take it all for yourself.

00:30:09 --> 00:30:24

For example, if you're working somewhere, and you're getting $10 for a pair hours, and you're going to save some money, so calculate the time of the amount you're sending is spending in the mod. So put this price on the top of the price you're getting, see if it's cheap or not.

00:30:25 --> 00:30:51

I mean, think time Time is money. Time has value. In fact, time is the most important and limited resource that we have in this life, you know that when it comes to money, when it comes to any other resource, there is an unlimited supply, there is more than you can consume more than you can take. But when it comes to time, it is a very limited quantity for you.

00:30:52 --> 00:31:27

I was just realized that this is how the marketing works. You know, you open the magazine or you open a newspaper, everything is sale sale. So and I realized that's kind of the more you have this dunya the more you'll have nothing of the ACA or Allah subhana database was even me I know, sorry, you're talking about because everybody kept calling this sale their sale, go go go go ahead. I'm like, I think it's me because of the lineup I didn't want to stay was like, but then I was just thinking of like, the amount of time the amount of effort and after that you the amount of time you want to put in this dunya is what's going to limit you from Allah subhanaw taala. So that lineup

00:31:27 --> 00:32:12

that we could have been studying or something i Listen, it's longer than I listen, I think combined of a whole month, you know, maybe and it's going to word some line of something you don't even necessarily need. Exactly. So the money is fine. We're clearly told, let total ofI do not transgress. They're in by greedily taking everything, forgetting Allah and or eating excessively, or forgetting Allah subhanaw taala on eating, right, because when you eat when you enjoy a blessing, who should you remember? Allah subhanaw taala right, withholding it not sharing it keeping it all for yourself, hoarding it. This is all tool here.

00:32:13 --> 00:32:36

It was during that period Masada Saddam was there with the Bani Israel. And after some time, he had to go to the mantle. And as the Bani Israel crossed the sea from that moment on, there was a cloud over them to shave them and they were also given food daily. And they were told Don't hoard any for tomorrow. Have trust in Allah subhanaw taala.

00:32:37 --> 00:32:40

And, you know, whenever we transgress concerning food,

00:32:42 --> 00:33:25

it's always gonna go waste, the food is gonna go waste. And it's not just with food, every other blessing. You know, for instance, if you have more clothes than you need more shoes, then you need more plastic bags even then you need, you know, for instance, we'd love to go to certain stores because they give plastic bags for free, like seriously, anything that you have in excess, it's going to become a burden for you. It's going to become a burden for you. It's going to be a source of regret for you. If you do that for your handler hola como la vie for your handler? As a consequence, what will happen? Yes, it will become halal. Halal literally means to untie a knot. So

00:33:25 --> 00:33:54

imagine a door is closed. All right, the latches on and what happens? You open those doors. So what does it mean? whatever is inside is not going to come outside for your Hila Aleikum. It will unleash on you because there'll be my anger, meaning my punishment. If you become greedy, if you transgress, then what will happen? My punishment shall come upon you.

00:33:55 --> 00:34:41

You will not be spared, you will suffer the consequences of being greedy fire Hillary Komodo b it will flood open on you. When my Yeah honey Lila you Adobe and he upon whom My Anger descends further, however, then certainly he has fallen however, however, literally means to fall. And what this is referring to is that such a person is ruined, such a person is destroyed. Such a person is fallen in the sight of Allah and such a person will fall into the Hellfire as well. You see exceeding the limits, being ungrateful, being greedy, being selfish. All of this What is it invite Allah's punishment. And also, when a person is obsessed with the things of this dunya whether it's

00:34:41 --> 00:34:48

food or its clothes, or it's any other thing of this dunya then this is something that degrades a person.

00:34:49 --> 00:34:59

It degrades him, this obsession is a cause of his humiliation in this life also, because there is no honor in this. There is no honor in what

00:35:00 --> 00:35:13

In being greedy, when a person is greedy, in that greed, there is no honor. In fact, it takes all honor away from such a person. You know, if you see someone eating greedily, what happens?

00:35:14 --> 00:35:46

You have a lot of respect for them. No, you don't have any respect left for such a person, right? You're shocked at how they're eating, you're shocked at the amount of food which is in front of them, you're shocked at the amount of food that they're wasting. For God. However, such a person falls in the sight of people, and in the sight of Allah subhanho wa taala. And people who are giving, who spend who share such people increase in their honor, in the sight of Allah, and also in the sight of people.

00:35:47 --> 00:35:53

Because even children who do they appreciate those who give them and those who take away from nowhere,

00:35:54 --> 00:36:10

those who will share with them, there'll be good friends with them, and those who will snap things from them. No way, you're not friends with me, I'm not your friend anymore. Right. So generosity is what elevates a person and selfishness and greed, it humiliates a person

00:36:11 --> 00:36:35

for God Hawa such a person has fallen. And especially with respect to eating because eating is mentioned over here bad eating habits, excessive eating or not caring about what you're eating all of this, you know, it makes your health go down as well. For Kadokawa. Right, it's detrimental to your health, it's detrimental to your well being. Your Honor, everything.

00:36:36 --> 00:37:12

Go ahead. I have a question. I was just wondering, you know, how you're talking about being greedy and all that kind of stuff, right? You know, sometimes there's just certain things that you don't prefer to share and stuff. No, it's not because you're greedy. And you just want to offer yourself like, just preference and stuff. So is there like a particular where do you draw the line? Which you share it? Okay. I mean, this is important for us to understand, because even children are given this understanding, right? You don't share everything. Have you read the book, we share everything. Robert Munch. Okay. So anyway, it's about these kids who go to school and they don't want to share

00:37:12 --> 00:37:43

anything. And then the teacher keeps telling them that you have to share you have to share in kindergarten we share. And then the kids are like, Okay, we have to share, so we'll share our clothes, right? So they exchange quotes, because they're sharing. So anyway, you have to draw the line somewhere. All right, some things are forgiving, they are for sharing and others are not. And just as in your life, you know, for instance, you don't share medication, you don't share your toothbrushes, you don't share your clothes that you're wearing in the sense that the clothes that are closest to you, okay, a cardigan or a jacket, that's something else, but certain things are not

00:37:43 --> 00:37:53

for sharing, right? But you really have to see, you know, for instance, food that I'm eating this person is they don't think I have cooties. What is that?

00:37:54 --> 00:37:59

Right? There's a term that has used over here, I'd had no idea and when I came here, what is it?

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

Goodies, right? So they don't think I have cooties or something like that. So they're cool eating my food and I'm cool eating there's so go ahead and share your food. Right? But every little thing, don't keep it to yourself. Be giving and have faith in Allah. That if Allah gave you today more than you needed, why would he not give you tomorrow? Why would he not give you tomorrow?

00:38:25 --> 00:38:46

Always have faith in Allah. And remember that hadith Allah says I am as my servant thinks I am. If you think positively about Allah, you're hopeful Allah will give me than Allah who will not disappoint you. But if you have doubt in Allah, maybe he won't give me

00:38:47 --> 00:39:36

then okay, that is what you will find. So always remain hopeful. You know, for instance, you go to this store and you got five new pairs of quotes for yourself and your sister and you share the exact same size. And she's looking at your nice sweaters with Hassan her eyes, come on, you can give her one. What's the big deal? You can even if you spend a lot of money, your money, the money that you earn, still give it what's the big deal. And always you will find that when you give something away and you have little you will find that little to be more because less is more. Remember this principle in life, less is more. But if you want more and more and more you will find more to be

00:39:36 --> 00:39:37


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

and also what you have even if it is little, when you will appreciate it. It will appreciate you understand.

00:39:48 --> 00:39:55

If you appreciate what you have, it will appreciate appreciate in the sense that it will grow. It will be enough for you.

00:39:56 --> 00:39:59

But when you're in that store and you're looking at 20 sweaters and you

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

can only afford to buy two, and you come home and you think, oh my Should I give one to my sister? No, I don't want to don't. And you will find those two to be less, you give one away. And the one that you have, you will enjoy it, Allah will put Baraka in it, because what you appreciate, appreciates Salam Alikum I was thinking about the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said, give even half of the date to save yourself from the fire. So half of the date, we think we think it's something small, sometimes it can cover the hunger to I was, once I was busy, one of my friends, she fingerlike swallow cucumber, and she said, have some I was hungry Subhanallah it cover my hunger and

00:40:41 --> 00:41:19

I was thinking in my heart, like *, how much reverb she had. So we shouldn't be literally small things we can whatever you have, just give it so inshallah it will be wait for us. Inshallah. The other day, I was also very hungry, and I was somewhere and there was no food and this person, they said, You know, I have an avocado. And I'm thinking, I've got to just buy it, you know, on its own, but I was too hungry. And that's all they had to give me. So I took it, and I ate it. And I actually enjoyed it a lot. A lot. You know, generally when you have an avocado, you mix it with something, you make a, you know something out of it, but having it raw like that as if you were a baby having

00:41:19 --> 00:41:58

baby food, but I enjoyed it Alhamdulillah that's all they had to give. And I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's really true. Because recently, I went through my closet, and like I gave away all the clothes that either I wasn't wearing, or like, like, you know, the clothes that I didn't need, or they weren't like taking up too much space. And like now I have a limited number of quotes that like I can wear. But still I like that because when I look at my closet, I know exactly what to wear. And I know what I wore last time I know what I need to wear this time. Yes. Because then you're just standing in front of your closet wondering What should I wear? What should I wear, I don't have

00:41:58 --> 00:42:04

anything proper man, you have a closet that is exploding, and you think you will have nothing proper,

00:42:05 --> 00:42:10

because there's too much stuff. So give so that you can appreciate what you have.

00:42:13 --> 00:42:14

I was recently

00:42:16 --> 00:42:56

in it, they were talking about you know, during like the prime time of Islam and everything. There were like, you know, the people in the bizarro used to do selling and marketing basically, at that time, what they do is that once they for the day, they would work. And once they'd see that they had sold enough things, they would just pack up and leave so that other people you know, so they can make profit. Yeah. And they were happy. Like today, if you look at marketing, what's happening in the economy and everything. It's really sad. And you know, it's not making anybody happier. We've just become consumers. And we just keep on buying and buying and, and because the worst vessel to

00:42:56 --> 00:43:40

fill is which one, your stomach, your greed. And the more you fill it, the more unsatisfied you are. Because satisfaction does not come from stuff. It comes by giving sound like I'm just thinking, as much as we have, we should give something to other people that we they would feel happy with what we have, we can also feel happy. You shouldn't just keep everything by yourself should share that way you can feel happy, and the other person will also feel happy and you don't have to be stressed Yes, is the greatest happiness comes from making someone else happy, bringing a smile to somebody's face. And when you will give something away, you're reducing stress in your life.

00:43:41 --> 00:44:18

So what this is, was touched on before consumerism, there's not only negatives to that in our own, like, in our own soul, we feel like we're just filling an empty vessel, something that just you can't seem to fill it up. We're using items to fill up the void in our hearts, and so on and so forth. But other than that, there's so many effects on the people around us those who are working in sweatshops in countries across the world, children who are being you know, sold to places like that, and just the destruction of the environment overall, creating products like shampoos, and so on throwing chemicals into lakes, into ponds, destroying forests, it's just a degenerative cycle that

00:44:18 --> 00:44:24

is just ruining everything overall. I mean, this greed is ruining our lives and ruining the lives of so many people.

00:44:26 --> 00:44:59

Recently, we like when we moved on, we found that there's a lot of like jewelry and stuff that we had to give away. And like just to, you know, just to make more space, because when you end up moving, you often end up cleaning as well. So we gave away a lot of this stuff. And we were actually it was in a third world country and you're moving so a lot of the like we gave it away to some children and you know, it's panela they say like one person's trash is another person's treasure. And it was like for them as like either come early. There were children and they're just like earrings and stuff and they were so excited about something so

00:45:00 --> 00:45:40

Small. Now I think like if we appreciate just those little things like it also makes you happier. If you learn to be thankful for, like everything that you have, instead of counting the things that you don't have, yes. And I love that, the more we give, I remember it's fun I love my dad, like as we're younger, it's so important to raise within children's like he used to think he's asking is do you like this so much we're like yeah, he will give it away on purpose in front of us when we're younger. And then I as we grew up, I remember he kept telling us the more you give what you love, the less you will keep what you don't want and you will get it back and allies Ron Allah, this is

00:45:40 --> 00:45:49

like one thing we I stick to my till this day and I realize anything that you give for the sake of Allah you will even get better than what you gave for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:45:50 --> 00:46:30

and I mean, this is something clear that if you want to be productive, if you want to be efficient, if you want to double your productivity and double your results, then you have to become a minimalist right, when it comes to documents on your computer, when it comes to the number of gadgets that you have, when it comes to the size of your house or the things that you own the clothes that you have, they have to be of minimum number because otherwise these things will consume you and your work will be neglected. So likewise, when we are concerned with just eating and dressing up and decorating our houses and going from one sale to the other and saving money here and

00:46:30 --> 00:46:40

saving money there and buying something just in case we might need it, we are being consumed by these things and the purpose of our lives which is serving Allah's Powell data that is being neglected.

00:46:42 --> 00:46:51

Because time is what is being used right? Either for this dunya or for the deen so when you will invest your time for the dunya then certainly your deen will be neglected.

00:46:52 --> 00:47:30

So be wise and see what is of essential value to your life and spend your time getting there. And what is not essential leave it get over it and tell yourself I'll enjoy later engender and this is something that has to begin early like was mentioned just now children, little children even though mother's over here and inshallah mothers to be every woman must you know have this as a goal in her mind. Teach your children to be giving, sharing gift to others. Yes, it comes with time with age. But this is a very important value that children must learn. Because true happiness comes from giving not from having.

00:47:31 --> 00:48:09

So what in the and indeed I love a phone shortly a Perpetual Forgiver meaning I continuously forgive I perpetually forgive who Lehman tab those who repent. Someone who repent to Allah, Allah forgives them over and over and over again. Because obviously someone who repent once doesn't mean that they will never have to repent again. No, they will have to repent again. Because we're human beings and we are going to make mistakes. You know, you make up your mind, I'm not going to be selfish. I'm not going to be greedy. I'm going to give but then what happens you forget you make a mistake again. So the more often you repent, the more forgiving you will find Allah. We're in the law firm only metabo

00:48:09 --> 00:48:24

the one who repents we're I'm Anna and he believes what Amina Saleh and and he also does righteousness Thumma Tada. And then he continues in guidance, this is very important to remember so much data.

00:48:25 --> 00:48:34

Because it further it means to adhere to guidance, to adhere to guidance to hold on to it and not let it go.

00:48:36 --> 00:48:41

All right, and if that is also to internalize the guidance that has been given.

00:48:42 --> 00:49:23

Now, obviously, you learn something in the day, and you make up your mind Inshallah, I'm going to stick to this, I'm going to hold on to this, I'm not going to let it go. You're a human being you're going to make a mistake, right? So you make a mistake, but then you go back and your goal, your vision that doesn't change, you're still adhering to the right way. So the one who is like this a third, then even if he makes a mistake, Allah subhanaw taala will forgive him. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said, I have left two things among you, as long as you hold fast to them you will never go astray and what are they the book of Allah and the Sunnah. So the one who holds on to them,

00:49:23 --> 00:49:35

he will not be misguided because he's a feather and the one who leaves them he does not remain firm on the guidance then he will go straight. He will not repent. Let's listen to the recitation of these.

00:49:37 --> 00:49:37

What are

00:49:38 --> 00:49:39


00:49:42 --> 00:49:42


00:49:46 --> 00:49:49

as CDVA Abadi vocally better home plenty of

00:49:51 --> 00:49:52

feedback to the year by setting

00:49:53 --> 00:49:56

the worker whether she

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

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

they talk

00:50:24 --> 00:50:27

to goon jadie But for a man

00:50:33 --> 00:50:35

who Loomio

or so

00:50:59 --> 00:51:00


00:51:02 --> 00:51:04

did you notice something? What

00:51:08 --> 00:51:54

was up to come and they took home? What does that mean? I saved you I provided you I gave you right? So the meaning is the same. All right. And remember that these different Quran the Quran was revealed in this manner. All right, the Prophet sallallahu sallam was given the Quran in in different colors in different modes of recitation. And the differences are one in the pronunciation you could say, all right in the recitation style. And secondly, in some places only there is a slight difference in the wordings as well. All right, and that really opens up your mind to different different meanings as well. Okay. Remember, this is how it was revealed to the Prophet

00:51:54 --> 00:51:55

salallahu early he was
