00:01:29--> 00:01:31

come in who the call Oh

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

63 all the way to 70.

00:01:37--> 00:02:20

And the surgeon said, Remember when we were resting by the rock, I forgot the fish. Satie made me forget to pay attention to it. And it must have made its way into the sea. How strange. Moses said, then that was the place we were looking for. So the two turned back, retrace their footsteps and found one of our servants, a man to whom we had granted our mercy and whom we had given knowledge of our own. Moses said to him, May I follow you so that you can teach me some of the right guidance you have been taught? The man said, you will not be able to bear with me patiently. How could you be patient in matters beyond your knowledge, Moses says God willing, you will find me patient, I will

00:02:20--> 00:02:29

not disobey you in any way. The man says, If you follow me then do not query anything I do if I mentioned it to you myself.

00:02:31--> 00:02:38

He said, Did you see when we return to the rock? Indeed, I forgot there the fish

00:02:39--> 00:02:42

and none made me for God except a shape on

00:02:44--> 00:03:40

that I should mention it. And it took its course into the sea, amazingly. So the deal was Ibrahim Musashi Sallam told his servant, and his servant is you should have known who's a prophet. Okay. And he told him that the whenever this anything happened to this fish, you let me know. So he knows that this fish, something that Ibrahim Musa alayhis salam has to do with his journey. We're not sure if he told him exactly what will happen is the sign that it will come back to live or not. There is nothing really indicate that But anyway, he told him at that moment when we rested at the rock, the fish basically I forgot the fish there.

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

And I forgot to mention it to you.

00:03:46--> 00:04:05

Did he forget it and he forget the container that has the fish No. As if he forgot to mention about the matter of the fish. Because the fish came back to life it was dead and dry. And I told you it's like when you put a salt and you dry like the way we do the

00:04:06--> 00:04:21

beef jerky or turkey, Turkey the same thing the fish was dried up. And that's how the fishes and a lot told Moosa that when this fish come back to life, that will the sign that you will meet the one that you seeking.

00:04:23--> 00:04:46

Because he told him that the lover will be where the two seas meet. But this is a very big huge area where exactly that area. He said when that moment the fish comeback comes back to life. You will find your man so Moosa was sleeping and the fish came back to life and jumped out of the container that you should have known carry.

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

And that something surprised him. That's why he thought he was very surprised by that very amazed by that, that you might say if this is took place in front of him. How come you forgot to mention

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

Something like that.

00:05:02--> 00:05:26

It's not something happen every day. That's right. So how did you forget about that? alpha zero in the interpreter of the Quran said that Why? He said Who am I and Sani, who illa shavon. The only reason I forgot about it because of Shabbat, because something like that you're not supposed to forget something like that it will be mentioned. But how I don't know how this slipped on my mind.

00:05:27--> 00:05:43

It's the ship unblocked me completely from it, to mention it to you. So that's one of that way the scholar interpreted this verse number two, an LMS said no, it is yes unique, but is not something

00:05:44--> 00:05:47

completely out of the ordinary.

00:05:48--> 00:06:42

In regard to musante, Sam, and Yoshi have been known, because Allah has shown you shall be known. So many miracles happen in the hand of Moses, he turned the stick to snake, he turned his light his hand to be shining, light comes out of it, you know, the sign that he showed to Pharaoh around the blood and the the, the the frogs, and you know, the nine signs that he should, so that and the split of the of the sea, and crossing the sea, all this took place already. So you should have been No, no, that Musa alayhis salaam filled with these miracles. So for the fish to come back to life, it's one of these things that happened with Musa alayhis salam. So he forgot to mention, but he was not

00:06:42--> 00:07:00

like something never seen before. It's not like me and you if we see that we'll be talking about the day and night. But for him, it is one of the things that he saw a lot similar to it, or greater than. So that's why it's not very exciting news, maybe for him to mention it.

00:07:01--> 00:07:06

Anyway, so when he said that, he said, so let's go back to

00:07:08--> 00:07:15

the place where we left the fish, or when the fish left your gut up came out. So he said,

00:07:16--> 00:07:24

and none made me forget it except the ship on that I should mention it. And it took its course into the sea. Amazingly.

00:07:26--> 00:07:36

What that means it took it course, into the sea amazingly. What tada sebelah who Phil buryatia amazingly, who's saying that amazingly.

00:07:40--> 00:07:45

LMS said it could be a law saying this describing

00:07:46--> 00:07:49

the state of most unusual

00:07:50--> 00:07:54

so Allah saying they both were amazed

00:07:55--> 00:08:10

by seeing this fish coming back to life and taking its course to that see, because when this talk when we walk back to the rock, they found the fish

00:08:12--> 00:08:24

where they found the fish as the Hadith Sahih Bukhari tell us it was in the shore in a mud Saran with a little bit of water, but it is tough to tell about moving

00:08:26--> 00:08:30

so the so the fish back to life in the sand.

00:08:31--> 00:08:40

You know how the shore with that with the wave comes there's like mud and an area which is there is a lot of like very shallow, so they found the fish there.

00:08:42--> 00:08:46

So Musa alayhis salam when he sold that

00:08:47--> 00:08:53

he basically Aha, and another narration said he found that next to Iraq

00:08:54--> 00:09:22

found the fish next to the rock moving so musala is set up to start hitting with his stick with his cane making a way for the water to come from the state to reach the fish. They want to see like you're about to die like how efficiently cannot so it's moving very fast. So you start making like a canal for the water with this with this game for the water to come to the fish.

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

So the moment that

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

the moment the fish

00:09:31--> 00:09:41

see that basically found the water start swimming towards that water and Moosa following it

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

maybe to the other one.

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

This was the

00:09:52--> 00:09:55

that was the this is the one I took this off the middle.

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

Okay, so

00:10:16--> 00:10:16

No problem.

00:10:17--> 00:10:18

So

00:10:19--> 00:10:20

he started following it.

00:10:22--> 00:10:32

And he is amazed by how this fish walking in basically moving and following a certain path.

00:10:33--> 00:10:49

path, that as if no one knows where it's going. And the same thing with you shall be known are both surprised. So that is one of the way that Mr. himolla interpreted this verse.

00:10:50--> 00:10:58

It's a loss of Hana data saying about them that they are multigp and they are amazed by that fish.

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

In in the Hadith and Nabi sallallahu sallam, that Moosa one of the narration but I don't know about the authenticity of it, that one of the narration says that every time it will walk into the sea, it will turn the sea to land, the path that is taking it turned, whatever goes like would enter the water, whatever, a touch from the water, that part behind it, it will be like a path, a solid land like a rock. So he starts walking on these rocks and took him to an island and that's what he found out other

00:11:38--> 00:11:51

than aeration and say hell Bahati is not as detailed like this. Then aeration so he'll Buhari it says that it moved and he followed it. And by the time he came back, he found a lover by the rock.

00:11:53--> 00:12:30

So he following the fish, and by the time the fish disappeared in the water, and he came back, he found another at the rock. Carla Delica macoun Napoli, Musa said this is what we were seeking. So they returned following their footsteps. Looking for that man. For water. For water, the abdomen Eva Deena. attina hora, meta min andina wylam Nahum in la luna Elma, they found a servant from among our servants, to whom we had given Mercy from Us, and had taught him from us certain knowledge

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

and this is allowed.

00:12:35--> 00:13:20

When Allah Subhana Allah said, Abby, them minibar Dena, my servant. You said more than Howdy, Ivanka, Ivanka kinetic alum, Camila cholelithiasis. were talking earlier with another group of people taking class with me that whenever the last panel data attribute something to him, it means that this is very special. This one is very special. So when Allah Subhana Allah said, My servant, yeah, and this is a very special servant. Like when he said, This is my house, which is a cabinet very special place, my master, this is my messenger, very special to anything not but to law, that she come off Allah, very special, she come up like any other camp, she can

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

leave.

00:13:23--> 00:13:33

And here he found him. And Allah subhana wa tada said that this person have two things, mercy and what

00:13:34--> 00:13:40

and what knowledge, Allah provide him with two things, mercy and knowledge.

00:13:46--> 00:14:10

And this mercy from Allah subhana wa tada is referring to a choosing him to be a prophet according to some of the roadmap. And some said, No, it means a mercy from Allah deceived him, that he has so much provision that he never needed to seek provision. And allama said that he had very good comfortable life.

00:14:11--> 00:14:22

So that's Allah is mercy upon him. And the knowledge that Allah has given him the special knowledge of law give him that Allah give him a knowledge of things that will happen in the future.

00:14:24--> 00:14:29

See, he said middle aduna Elma Allah Muhammad LaDonna.

00:14:30--> 00:14:42

There is a concept. I don't know if you ever heard this terminology before, something they call it la la duni. Anybody heard this terminology, and an attorney.

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

An attorney, this is a very common terminology used or a terminology commonly used by some Sufi groups and sectors. And they said ulmann ladhani is the knowledge that you receive

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

directly from Allah with no mediator.

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

No one in the middle.

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

And they said that

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

that's the element that you need.

00:15:15--> 00:15:26

Is this concept the process of ever used that term? Now, are we okay with this terminology, there is a rule of thumb, you need to understand

00:15:27--> 00:15:37

any terminology. We cannot say we agree with it, or we disagree with it, we accept or reject, unless we ask what this terminology means.

00:15:40--> 00:16:12

Because we don't have problem with new terminologies, we don't have a problem with different categorizations and developing them. But we have to ask, What do you mean by saying Ll Miller dooney. Ella, Donnie means m, it means knowledge alone, it means the one from Allah, directly from Allah. If that, if you mean that the knowledge that comes directly from Allah to the prophets and the messengers, through what we call Ye, Revelation, we're fine with that.

00:16:14--> 00:16:25

But if you believe that Allah has another way of revealing his knowledge or sharing some of his knowledge with human beings,

00:16:27--> 00:16:34

in a way or through a process, other than what we know of prophets and messengers, we don't agree with that.

00:16:35--> 00:16:39

Completely. That is something on acceptable

00:16:41--> 00:16:59

to claim that, for example, this righteous person this saint, he basically looks straight to that safe tablet, or a person who has heart attached to Allah so Allah speaks to the person directly. That's unacceptable and Islam

00:17:01--> 00:17:41

and there is people claim that isn't a lot talk to me last night, we became like what we have here and the southern No, oh, God spoke to me last night and you know, we'll open this door and you know, it's not only in Muslims group in many sects so this door is completely the mainstream Sydney Muslim close that door from long time ago. Because if you open the door, everybody will tell you, you know, I have a straight forward relationship with Allah. That's why even they make fun of the mainstream Sundays they used to tell them and Luna Dena Kumar may eat Amelia Tanaka, Dina hi Isla de la mood. You take your religion from dead people. And while we take our religion from the most loving one,

00:17:41--> 00:17:58

which has never died, you say I've told you I'm telling you, Zack told me I go straight to the to the to the source. That's why I've been out I'll be for example, which is a very famous Sophie figure. They said he made 70 strat women.

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

He's 70 times went to the nebula made once in Adobe did 17.

00:18:08--> 00:18:21

And not only been out of the many, the claim that they did so many, because they go directly to Allah and Allah speak to them directly. So they take their knowledge straight from the source of knowledge.

00:18:24--> 00:18:51

Also, if you claim that there is some people have knowledge, that no other people have it at all, and this is the knowledge that allows further secrets. There is secrecy in the religion we don't accept that concept. That's why I didn't I thought it once was asked a ha Sakuma Rasulullah she Indian announced that the process I'm giving you something special, different than anyone else, he said Paula will let the fella called habitable

00:18:52--> 00:19:05

I swear by the one by last panel Donna in in Furman new de la abdon vikita nothing. The only special thing is your ability to understand and to analyze the text

00:19:06--> 00:19:46

as the only special thing that a person might have. But special thing that Oh, you know what? A lot came to me my dream and told me or the Prophet told told me something. No. The only special thing is that you read this verse, I read this verse, you wouldn't be able to see in it what I cannot see. But not because some like outside influence. No, because your understanding is deeper. Your knowledge is wider. that's acceptable. That level is acceptable. But to say no the Prophet came to me or jabril came to me or Allah last night told me Hey, there is something about this verse. If you read it 20 times, you know you will be rich.

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

I think that's just unacceptable. Because we know that the last planet Allah said he revealed the religion and he completed that religion. Carla who Moosa so I'll cover that

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

doesn't have anything other than what a lot taught him through the wind. Okay.

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

Moosa said to him, May I follow you on the condition that you teach me from what you have been taught? of sound judgment.

00:20:19--> 00:20:22

So he said, I will follow you, but with the condition that he teach me.

00:20:23--> 00:20:33

And this is a very Yeah, in a respectful way of asking. He said that I want your company for the sake of learning.

00:20:35--> 00:20:36

And he said,

00:20:37--> 00:20:59

Hello, Achterberg May I follow you, is not an order to request. Okay. Then listen to me, Marilyn, to teach me some of what you have been taught. If you notice, he didn't say, teach me what you have been taught. He didn't say that. What's the difference?

00:21:01--> 00:21:06

The Quran said, Moses said, teach me some of what you've been taught.

00:21:08--> 00:21:12

Versus teach me what you've been taught?

00:21:13--> 00:21:18

Did you see it this year? Different than the bottom? The two center? What different? Is it?

00:21:27--> 00:21:32

So is it better to say, teach me from what you have? or teach me what you have?

00:21:33--> 00:21:35

Which one is more?

00:21:36--> 00:21:37

appealing to you? Yes, Mohammed?

00:21:48--> 00:21:50

Why it's more respectful.

00:21:58--> 00:22:03

Ever, Brian, Tim, you tell me and said, Chef, can you teach me all what you know?

00:22:05--> 00:22:47

outside this guy planning to stick around for a long time? You know, it's kind of an odd, I feel like so much pressure, because what do you know so much? Can you imagine? That's a very general statement. But if he told me teach me from what you have, that's, it means he's not gonna be a long time with me. I stuck with this guy for a very long time. So when he's a stranger, that's most uncovered. Okay. Number two, if I tell you give me from what you have, that it's a very intelligent question. That means in another word, I am psychologically influencing you to start thinking about the best of what you have to share it with me.

00:22:48--> 00:23:14

Not everything you have. So now you became selecting the knowledge that you have that you want to share with me. It's a very beautiful way of asking very smart way of putting the question. Mim limita, Roche de, are washed, sound judgment, or rushed, which is your ability to do things exactly correct. Right, perfect,

00:23:16--> 00:23:20

or rushed is to be guided. So he's seeking the knowledge that lead to

00:23:22--> 00:23:33

guidance, lead to sound judgment, lead to the right course of actions, because a lot of knowledge are good, but they just entertaining information.

00:23:35--> 00:24:05

They're nice, but they're not guidance. They don't lead to actions. They don't need to make your wise person. That's right. So here, he's asking a very precise question. Two beautiful question that he asked. So first, he's very respectful. May I, too, he said some of what you have. So I'm not going to be bothered bothering you for a very long time. And you know, and he noticed that the color is a person lived by himself. So he's gonna not not in the

00:24:06--> 00:24:14

habit of having company okay. Three, that you know, he can kind of direct him to choose the best of knowledge of jihad.

00:24:16--> 00:24:21

And he choose what kind of knowledge and literally he is looking for the knowledge that lead to Rashad.

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

And

00:24:25--> 00:24:34

listen to also what he said. He said, hell taboo in Arabic language, the word tibbett follow.

00:24:36--> 00:24:40

Even in English, I would assume and carry the same meaning.

00:24:43--> 00:24:48

When you follow someone, that means give the indication that you

00:24:49--> 00:24:52

do what that person does.

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

Right? I follow you. Any I do like you, oh, I follow any I'll do the same thing you do. So

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

He's telling him I'm a serious learner. I'm here not only to follow your words, but also I will follow your actions. You became my role model.

00:25:14--> 00:25:27

So even he chooses he didn't say patola homosassa told him Can you teach me now he said, I want to follow you. I want to take you like a my master my role model.

00:25:28--> 00:26:00

So and that's something interesting that we need to take a teacher, you take him as a role model someone that you can follow his footsteps, okay. Also, it tiba give a meaning which it means obedience. And I will be an obedient, the word at debit I will follow you and I will obey you. That's right. So I'm gonna follow that means you're gonna obey me. So he gives another indication that I'm a person coming to show you with all my whatever Can you imagine? Moosa? CV?

00:26:01--> 00:26:02

Okay.

00:26:03--> 00:26:21

A lot talk to him directly. A lot saved him from Venezuela in our last fight that I give him that the best of the books of that time, which is that the Torah you can imagine all the credential the doubt, and he coming with such a melody? And he said, I will take you like my master. I'm here to follow you.

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

Such a beautiful word.

00:26:29--> 00:26:32

What a teabag. Yeah. And

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

upon in many verses in the Quran.

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

So he told him,

00:26:41--> 00:26:47

indeed, with me, you will never be able to have patience.

00:26:50--> 00:27:19

Because you will see things different than what your Sharia is. Because as you know, Moses, Sharia and rulings apply to him and to children of Israel, doesn't applicable not applicable to any other group. We do most was not sent to the Africans was not sent to the Asians not sent to the world was sent to the children of Israel was not sent to the Egyptian even he was sent only to the children of Israel. That's why he told me,

00:27:20--> 00:27:30

I'm not here for you. So why would you put your nose and my business, I'm here to take them away. That's my people like him for them.

00:27:31--> 00:27:43

I'm not even to correct you or to order you to do this not to do that. Even my rules not applicable to you for how you can do whatever you want. That's not my job. My job is to be a slider that sort of Israel.

00:27:45--> 00:27:54

So here, the caller knows that they are different, they have different rules, but he knows he cannot take that because things he's going to see different than what Moosa knows is allowed or not.

00:27:56--> 00:27:57

Also, because he knows

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

that musalla is Sam if he sees something wrong, as a prophet, he cannot remain silent

00:28:09--> 00:28:17

as a person who chose to carry this great responsibility of facing and confronting

00:28:19--> 00:28:22

for out this person with this nature will not be silent.

00:28:23--> 00:28:24

So he knows that

00:28:27--> 00:28:35

and he emphasis in the pilot in the colon dystopia, you will not and you will never he emphasis on that.

00:28:38--> 00:28:51

Why would you think I'll have said that at the beginning to prepare most of Rajat come, then he said, and how can you have patience for what you don't encompasses and knowledge?

00:28:53--> 00:28:56

something beyond your knowledge? How would you be able to

00:28:57--> 00:28:58

patients with it?

00:29:01--> 00:29:24

On a Saturday duni insha, Allah whoa sapio after all this too strong versus showing how serious this matter is mooser of light, you will find me if Allah wills insha Allah, because it's about future if Allah wills patient, and I will not disobey you in any order.

00:29:25--> 00:29:29

And I will be patient with anything that I'll say I don't like in the future.

00:29:30--> 00:29:35

And I will be patient because whenever I see from you is not going to stop me from following you.

00:29:36--> 00:29:39

It will not stop me from obeying you.

00:29:41--> 00:29:44

And he said, set it Do me

00:29:45--> 00:29:52

a scene you will find me okay. And he said insha Allah to make more emphasis

00:29:53--> 00:29:55

saw bureaux patient.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

This is those who understand or enjoy the

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

urbit sort of isn't a FIDE sob patient, he didn't say you will find me I possess a lot of patience is a patient. When you see patient, it means a person who have a lot of trouble.

00:30:17--> 00:30:52

But you say, patience and Arabic language, if you just make it like, I'll have a lot of patience, just like that, it means I'll have a lot or I'll have patience. But when I say I'm a patient person, I am full of that, I will be absolutely sob. And I will continue to have supper with you. Instead, okay. A lot of said, then, if you follow me, don't ask me about anything until I make to you about mentioned. So when I tell you about it, you can speak otherwise you should not talk at all.

00:30:54--> 00:31:00

If you want to continue my company, you be quiet. You don't ask until I let I tell you.

00:31:02--> 00:31:14

And this is from another to teach him this proper etiquette. Don't rush things. Wait, hold on, like her to say Hey, hold your horse. Don't jump your guns, you know, just be patient.

00:31:18--> 00:31:37

So you will be able to stay with me longer, and the longer you stay the more you so that's what we'll call it a goal. However, the goal is not by the way, I'm a person who get nervous very quickly and I'm going to lose it is not His goal was to give more chance for Moosa to learn.

00:31:41--> 00:31:49

And he was worried about that from the beginning. That's why the Prophet Mohammed Salim said, May Allah forgive Moosa if we have a little bit more patient.

00:31:50--> 00:31:56

Okay, if he has a little bit more patience, we will have learned more than what happened between them.

00:31:57--> 00:32:12

Before we go forward, I want to share with you some of the lessons that I basically obstruct or was able to come up with by looking at the previous verses from the beginning of the story of Muslims.

00:32:14--> 00:32:23

I'll just go over one or two points quickly. In the story, then I'll tell you that the lessons, remember, the whole story started by Musa alayhis salam,

00:32:24--> 00:32:33

thinking about himself with all the knowledge that Allah has given him. He said, when he was addressing the children of Israel, he said, who has more knowledge than me?

00:32:34--> 00:32:37

No one in the vision of this earth have more knowledge than me,

00:32:38--> 00:32:57

than a lot of prevented him by saying, if you say in sha Allah, or you said Allah knows best, but as far as I know, I am the most knowledgeable person, but just to make that claim that you're the most knowledgeable and you know, nobody knows as much as you know, and the visit of the earth. A lot of them know that as someone knows things you didn't know.

00:32:58--> 00:33:15

Then Moosa immediacy Who is this person, he said, My servant of color. He said, where I can find him to learn from him. See that the story goes like this. Then he told him go toward the two C's MIT, and today I remind you of that rest of the story. So let's see what are the lessons number one,

00:33:17--> 00:33:22

Musa alayhis salam is a prophet and messenger, one of the

00:33:24--> 00:34:02

one of the five messengers, we call them the messenger of the great Well, the top five messengers that a lot ever chosen a love ever sent to humanity. Allah sent him that gave him the Torah. Allah wrote the Torah with his own handful of musante salaam a lot choose chose him to be the messenger to Benny Salah eat. And with all this knowledge that he has, and he possesses, when he heard that there is someone has more knowledge than him, or he has knowledge not sorry, not more knowledge than he has knowledge that he doesn't have. He traveled to that person to learn from him.

00:34:05--> 00:34:40

Today, one of us listen to a couple of hutzpah and a couple of speech online read couple of books I'll see thinks that he knows everything come to the class. No, you're not I don't need it just this has nothing in it come to the helicopter come to this gun. Nothing. Come to the conference. And just compare how with all the knowledge that Musashi Sam has he still fulfilled the verse or Rob busy engineering May Allah inquiry increase my knowledge number two,

00:34:41--> 00:34:46

knowledge you have to put effort to attend.

00:34:47--> 00:34:54

That's why this story. It started the very center that the

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

dead and the course of the live which is the traveling

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

seeking knowledge,

00:35:02--> 00:35:03

or rational avatar Evelyn

00:35:05--> 00:35:27

Musa alayhis salam traveled to seek knowledge. And that's how all the scholars that we are aware of the travel the world, to seek them to seek the knowledge. But they have never hunted, Rahim Allah, one of the great scholar founders, a travel 34 years of his life 34, two trips,

00:35:28--> 00:35:31

two trips is about 34 years.

00:35:32--> 00:35:37

First one was 21 years, and second oils 13 years

00:35:41--> 00:35:42

in his life,

00:35:44--> 00:35:55

to seek knowledge on foot, by the way, he lived in Spain, he traveled all the way to rahsaan in Iran, in Yemen, to collect the Hadith and Devi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:35:57--> 00:36:17

So this is something that the knowledge became a concept that didn't really matter. Human law knows that you travel to learn. That's why traveling for this for the sake of learning has more value than just learning from someone local.

00:36:18--> 00:36:26

You should start with local, but you traveled to learn that has another another value, like what

00:36:27--> 00:36:30

can you think of other values comes when you travel to seek knowledge.

00:36:32--> 00:36:58

You'll be exposed to different cultures. That's why this scholar who came from Spain, to the Middle East, he brought with him the books of animus Shafi, which is the don't know about all of the nabard mallex book. He, the people from Al Andalus, in Spain moved to Egypt like Toby, he said, that's a different culture. That's what I used to have in Spain or understood that time.

00:36:59--> 00:37:05

So different cultures also. And different culture give you different perspectives of things.

00:37:06--> 00:37:13

Also, you will have new friends, you this the best friends you can ever make when you travel.

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

Also honoring the knowledge.

00:37:17--> 00:37:38

When you travel, and you put a lot of effort and time. You honor the knowledge I teach in a moment of Institute. And I remember, I still remember a sister came to me, and she said, Jeff, I saved because it's like $83 the course she said, I've been three months saving money to take the course. She's a college student

00:37:39--> 00:38:02

said I don't have the money to pay the 83. But I've been saving the money for the last three months to be able to take this course we go. We teach every three to four months, a course in Seattle, or around America. So when a student told me that what she was not telling me that because she wanted me to give her a break or discount or scholarship. No, she wanted just to tell me how serious he is.

00:38:03--> 00:38:14

When I was in Colombia, another young lady came to me and the brother told me, he said, check this lady, she traveled over 20 hours to be here with us in this conference.

00:38:15--> 00:38:17

I said 20 hours.

00:38:18--> 00:38:27

I was joking. I said what you're riding a camel. She said no, actually, I was writing a llama.

00:38:30--> 00:38:32

I said what she said llama

00:38:33--> 00:38:51

said my village, I use a llama to go down from the village all the way down. Then it took after that a book, a truck on the back of the truck, all the way to the bus station, then to the train station. Then all the way to here. I live in the moment. We don't have cars there.

00:38:54--> 00:38:58

I was like wow, 20 plus hours just to come to the course.

00:39:00--> 00:39:01

When I was in Colombia

00:39:03--> 00:39:08

I was like whoa, this is that someone you can imagine how they will value the knowledge

00:39:11--> 00:39:12

number three

00:39:13--> 00:39:22

one of the lessons that you can see in this story you should take the necessarily means that's why they took food with them in their journey.

00:39:23--> 00:39:34

That's right. They took the food and they prepare their food they had a dry foods that survived for a long time. So anybody want to do something should plan properly for it. That's a lesson number four.

00:39:35--> 00:39:42

You should have been noone was very angry at himself very sad at himself

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

that he lost the fish that Moosa cared for it so much because most I keep telling him watch the fish rod in between he lost that he felt bad. But guess what? That losses was a beginning of a new journey.

00:40:02--> 00:40:07

That losses that happen was not the end, it was actually that beginning.

00:40:08--> 00:40:33

So many times we think that the thing that we lose in life or thing that goes not according to what we plan is the worst thing happened to us in our life. And we don't know maybe Allah has another plan for us and allows another beginning for us another journey for us to explore. So always remember this story to inspire you that even when they lost the fish, they gained something better than the fish, which is a habit.

00:40:34--> 00:40:36

And there's something another

00:40:37--> 00:40:52

journey for them. Frequently, Minh, Mina, Yato, Illa minha in every kilometer in every hardship, there is always ease. There is always gifts.

00:40:53--> 00:40:54

Number five,

00:40:57--> 00:41:00

knowledge should lead to humility.

00:41:01--> 00:41:04

Knowledge should lead you to be down to earth.

00:41:05--> 00:41:11

When he said most about himself, that I'm the most knowledgeable person

00:41:12--> 00:41:31

and that was not appropriate way of talking a lot immediately or prevented him a lot immediately made him to pay attention to what Allah said in the Koran Woolfolk accordingly the L Min alene above every knowledgeable person there's someone has more knowledge, or have knowledge if you don't have

00:41:33--> 00:41:49

so if this is something I want to know, I want to share with you a lesson. Don't always look at your knowledge as the best knowledge that no knowledge beyond it. Don't think of your method is the method the best method and know that better than my mother.

00:41:50--> 00:41:53

Like some people would say, you know,

00:41:55--> 00:42:25

fella Anna to and I'm not gonna mention any names while I'm fasting. Okay, but some of the AHA would say that our madhhab Sahaba like Tamil Kava, our mother is absolutely correct. And no chance to be wrong. Woman and the other mother had the shaft. This is a hanafy guy who said that he said the shaft in the Maliki the hammer are absolutely wrong. No chance for them to be correct.

00:42:27--> 00:42:39

That's arrogant. Or do you think of your movement or your Gemma or your share? That he is only share? The only right the ultimate?

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

That's not right. Learn from the lessons of Moosa when he said I'm the most knowledgeable I said, No, that's not that's not the attitude to to deal with. Have confidence. But don't be arrogant. Don't block your eyes from seeing what's out there because there's so much to learn.

00:42:58--> 00:43:05

Number six, win a law describe another. He described him first with abdulah.

00:43:08--> 00:43:13

That's right, one of my server servitude, which is invalid.

00:43:15--> 00:43:23

Then next artina who? Rama mercy, the next comes knowledge,

00:43:25--> 00:43:31

righteousness, which is to be a servant to Allah to be a worshipper. Then mercy then comes What

00:43:32--> 00:43:45

about a knowledge? That's right. A lot of time people knowledge comes first. No taqwa no righteousness, no spirituality, nothing. It's all about information, no mercy.

00:43:47--> 00:44:10

It doesn't work this way. The way a lot put it to so beautiful, that you have to have this stuff what and in should lead to righteousness and M should lead to spirituality. m should lead to purification of the soul. And when you purify your soul, you ready you became a merciful person and a person of knowledge.

00:44:11--> 00:44:25

And this is something you need to also look at is how Allah started with mercy before knowledge. Because the knowledge that does not produce mercy as a curse.

00:44:26--> 00:44:42

If your knowledge doesn't lead you to be merciful with people, the way you deal with them the way you look at them. You just judge him and with with no mercy. That's not the way of a bad thing. That's not how the righteous people are.

00:44:46--> 00:44:58

Number seven, one of the lessons you can learn whenever you forget something, you say I'll give it to him in a ship analogy, because shavonne cause human beings to forget the things which is important.

00:45:00--> 00:45:13

Mountains anyhoo enlish shavon Cora Siobhan caused me to forget about it. So from this we learned that when you when you can remember something good, it is something you can say, Oh, they will blame the ship on our G.

00:45:15--> 00:45:15

Eight.

00:45:17--> 00:45:19

See how

00:45:21--> 00:45:23

humble down to earth is

00:45:25--> 00:45:35

the servant. The servant is a prophet. He didn't say you know what I can be your server nonprofit like you and I messaged him a lot. Yeah, you're hired a little bit but not servant.

00:45:37--> 00:45:39

Make me Assistant Vice President.

00:45:41--> 00:45:48

So it's an interesting how he is a servant to Musashi set up.

00:45:50--> 00:46:05

And that's how, that's how the students knowledge should be with each other's help one another, down to earth one another, especially with those who are older among them, those who have more knowledge among them.

00:46:07--> 00:46:09

Number nine,

00:46:10--> 00:46:13

Moosa has more knowledge than ever.

00:46:15--> 00:46:17

And no doubt is higher level that we'll call it.

00:46:19--> 00:46:23

But still, a lover has knowledge that moves or don't have,

00:46:25--> 00:46:26

what lesson we can learn from this,

00:46:28--> 00:46:31

that we as a community need one another.

00:46:33--> 00:46:39

I might have more knowledge, but I'm not an aaronson. But that's not enough.

00:46:40--> 00:47:26

I need people who specialized in other area, maybe I need someone who is very good in politics, in PR in media. Someone who is a die and knows how to give hope but very well maybe it's not my area. I don't need to be ahead of every area. You know, I'm not an artist, but I need an artist to complete me. And that's something we should learn as a student of knowledge. Don't give the 10 or as a community don't make the Imams are like the super Imam he has to lead everything and those people like that, like go to certain meetings of going into names all Mashallah Shasha you do this no, no, you need this is not my area. It's not my specialty. I might give you a little bit of my experience,

00:47:26--> 00:47:54

but I should not lead in that area. I appreciate the respect. Okay, but still we as a community need to know sometimes some of the people or maybe sold student knowledge believe themselves the ability to do like knows everything which is wrong dangerous. will always should look to everybody in the community that he can. He knows something I don't know. You know what that someone I need to bring him closer to me. So we can complete one another.

00:47:56--> 00:47:59

Teamwork, very good. Number 10.

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

No matter how the mistake is big

00:48:05--> 00:48:06

Be honest about

00:48:07--> 00:48:08

where we learned this from.

00:48:11--> 00:48:45

When he lost the fish, moose, I kept telling him this fish is important. This is something I love told me about it. It's a great thing that he lost. That's right. But he was very honest about and that's one of the best things if you make a mistake, be honest about it. Say it the way it is apologize, and things will move on. Don't try to hide it. Oh Moosa just wait right here shall I'll bring it I'll just you know, try to be smart and go together. No, he was very honest forward about that's a great lessons for us to learn as well. Number 11

00:48:48--> 00:48:50

you should not be angry at someone

00:48:52--> 00:48:54

who sincerely forgot something.

00:48:56--> 00:49:04

See musala set up he said when he told him I forgot I honestly forgot about it completely. He didn't say oh

00:49:06--> 00:49:30

my mistake to bring you with me. Did he say that? It is my fault actually that someone like you with me did something like that? No. And sometimes if your children your your husband said I forgot to get it. What kind of husband is this? What kind of man is this love his wife forget about you know getting her that or getting this? Or what kind of man you are you forgot about my birthday. You know?

00:49:31--> 00:49:34

I honestly forgot I slipped my mind that this today.

00:49:36--> 00:49:43

If someone forgot something, don't ever, you know fire on him. If it's an honest mistake and just he forgot.

00:49:46--> 00:49:51

Number 12. A lesson that you can learn from this story.

00:49:52--> 00:49:56

fame and knowledge not necessarily to go together.

00:49:58--> 00:50:00

There is a lot of people have a lot of knowledge

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

But not famous.

00:50:02--> 00:50:06

How there was not that famous muscle never heard of him. He has a lot of knowledge.

00:50:08--> 00:50:10

Other didn't even his name is not mentioned in the Quran.

00:50:12--> 00:50:14

When he found the other was by himself

00:50:15--> 00:50:18

nobody around while moves a very famous,

00:50:19--> 00:50:29

most famous name in the Quran, the most repeated name in the Quran and the most repeated story in the Quran the story of Musa more than Mohammed Salah

00:50:30--> 00:50:39

Can you imagine that Musa and Shalom Israel Moses story repeated in the Quran more than any other story. Very famous well known.

00:50:40--> 00:50:51

But it doesn't mean that you're not famous. It means he doesn't. Sometimes we can undermine the people not very famous, even though not because he's not famous. It means he doesn't have a lot to offer.

00:51:01--> 00:51:02

I have to stop here because of
