I begin with the greetings of peace. The greetings mentioned by the Father, the patriarchs and the messengers from the beginning of time.
To our president, I speak them to you in Arabic initially as salaam alaikum. But for our guests, who may not be familiar with Arabic, peace be upon you now most eternal greetings are actually very significant than they carry the spirit of the Islam Awareness Week that we are here to share with with each other. And I've been allocated a very interesting topic, Moses, because he's an individual Holly has Salaam peace and blessings be upon him, and all of the other prophets and messengers that preceded him and those who have come after him, come emulating an ending, according to Muslims with the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him.
My discussion with you today is going to range from murder. I'm going to talk about murder. We're going to talk about things that are inanimate, unmoving, that logically should not shift or possess certain features, by Divine Will power. By the authority of God, they change rocks produce water,
bodies of water split, people are saved and salvaged. We're going to also talk about fate. predestiny, cada,
we're going to speak about marriage. I know talking about Moses, right? I won't be as far reaching as our previous speaker in the tangents that we will address. But we will take a very detailed look at the life of this great prophet of Allah, Who is actually makes up the most of the process, or the authoritative stories that are found of biblical individuals, or prophetic prophetic individuals in the Quran. No other Prophet, no other messenger is spoken in more detail of By Allah, in the Quran, then the Prophet moves, moves up or Moses. So we are going to look at it from a historical perspective that's narrated in a chronology from the Quran. But we wish to also extract some
important lessons and benefits for you and I as people of faith, people have moral values. And the message that I deliver you today is an intrinsic message. It's a message that's common and shared by all people. So it's a universal message. And that's my aim with you today. In sha Allah.
Fate. Imagine, at a point in time, a governor, a ruler,
makes a decree and says
that From this day forth, every male child from a particular racial ethnicity are from a particular cultural background, any male child is to be taken and executed, within three days of his birth. That was the decree of Pharaoh fit. As is mentioned in the Quran, he ordered that after having seen a dream that was interpreted for him by his priests, that there's going to be someone who will emerge, who will you serve and take his power, remove him from his authority, and then that person would be a male child from the Israelites. So he decided with his wisdom, that any male child their life was to be extinguished, take the child from his mom, kill him.
And Allah mentions to us in Surah, Al cos,
enough around a man would you move to my panel hoffy. Pharaoh, his advisors have man, his army, all who supported him were in enormous error, they were in plain error. And yet you find that that which would bring an end to that dictatorship to that established Cuf that established ungratefulness disbelief in God, that tyrannical process that that which would bring its demise with the birth of a child.
And a law tells you in the Koran, after the birth of Moosa, and it's actually one of the most majestic verses one of the great poets of Arabic language of Islam lobby, he says, while he was walking One day, he heard a young girl reciting poetry in Arabic is a really poetic language. It's got rhythm, it's got rhyme and it's got stanzas and it goes up and down, and it's
symetrical even when you read the Koran sometimes those of us want a tune with it. We failed to see the beauty of the synchronicity in it a lot, for example will tell you in the
one a Becca can bill
and your Lord, we in English we have to translate to words, we have to translate it, your Lord proclaim him as the most high and worthy of worship.
But in Arabic, if you can see those letters in your mind, or up back there off the bat, that calf is the actual symmetrical opposite of Kevin Can the wrong so the rhythm of the language the language of the Quran isn't just in its wording isn't just in its flow of up and down. There's more to it. And that's why the Arabic language is the Quran. It's it's an Arabic tongue to Arabic language. It's a powerful language. It's a static language. It's an unchanging language. As I gave reference to your brothers and sisters in the audience at work University, as an Arabic speaking person, when I refer to a computer as I had a computer, this is a computer, you don't invent Arabic words. They're
static. There's actually a book margin. I mean, enormous encyclopedia compendium of all the Arabic root words that begin from one end to the other. So Allah says in this verse where he gives two instructions, to warnings, and to procreate and to glad tidings or good news. In one sentence, he says, For our hyena, Ella only moves
for either 50 or lazy affiliate newsletter hoffy. Any email or two who elect to come in and mousseline upon the birth of your child, the mother of Moses, knowing soldiers are going to come knocking on her door, she hid her child, she would feed him in the dark, she wouldn't let anyone hear his his she would stifle his cries, as is mentioned to us in the Sierra, she wouldn't let anyone know that she had given birth, she lied to people for a period of time, and would have her daughter dressed in her clothes, and walking the streets. So people say, Oh, look, she's still walking around. She hasn't given birth yet. Don't go to her home yet.
But you can only keep that charade up for so long.
So Allah says, For our hyena, we gave revelation to the mother of Moses, you know that word? It's the same word that Allah uses. In discussing or reporting his correspondence to the prophets. I send them we say, gibreel, what brought you to the Prophet? I said, I don't want you to get confused. I don't want you to think that it was a divine revelation to her. It was a feeling in our heart, it was intuition.
What does that mean?
It means for you and I, the closer you come to Allah, he leaves your heart.
You're you're at a point in time where you're deciding something in your life. If you're not close to your Lord, if you're not close to a law, if you're not close to God, your heart isn't leading you in the right way.
A lot put in her heart, this message for her look.
Feed him care for your child for either 50 but when you come to that point of fear,
put them in a basket, throw them in a river. Wow. That's fate. What does that mean? It means that there's a moment in your life now or in your past or coming up in your future where a law has decided something critical for you that you have no power or influence to avert or to bring about in speed or expedience.
Pharaoh thought that he could end the life of Moses that would end everything. Moses as a young infant not knowing anything about angels or the books or the Torah or the pharaoh not knowing anything just being suckled as a young child, innocent baby thrown in the water. Put in a basket, cutter fate. There's moments in your life you have no power or control or authority over and it's important for you The sooner you are and the younger you are that you learn this lesson that there is a mightier authority than you
there is a greater power than you
there is an influence on your life leading you right left center forward backwards.
Put him in this water. Ignore do what he like. Don't worry
He's gonna come back to you.
You might be surprised, you might say probably Yeah.
Really, I was really gonna put something in my heart make me feel truth lead me, but I'm corrupt or am I really worthy?
Do you know Allah uses that same word to talk about the ends and to talk about the bees? Well how to book Atlanta
and it doesn't even Angie barely boo.
Allah speaks to bees, animals, insects, and says to them, Look, the place for you to build your hives and to build, go into mountains go into caves, go into trees. That's where you hide and shelter yourself and produce that honey. So you're not too insignificant for a lot to look down upon you
and to touch you and to bless you. You're not too insignificant to be alone in this whole world and he hears you. You're not too insignificant, you're not less significant than that little baby who was thrown in that river. And Allah says, tells you the ioannina we watched over that child is a Pamela
destined fated cada ordained that he would bring about the destruction of that evil, death spot.
unbelieving denier of truth Pharaoh
That's an important lesson from the life of Moosa. even greater is the iron
who rescues Moosa
the wife of
Pharaoh, wow. Disney couldn't write like, you know, like a greater scenario.
is put in the lion's den,
the one who brings him up, who makes him a prince, who gives him power and authority and governance
is the one that he was fearing.
That's the one who cared for him, nurtured him and brought him up. And the mother
of Moosa was appeased By Allah, because her heart
cutting care that took Devi, the mother of moves on when she found out that the person caring for her son was Pharaoh, Allah tells you in her in the forum, her heart ripped open.
In Canada to TV, she got so concerned for her child, she ran over to the palace to say, No, no, no, no, give me back my child. That's my child. You haven't knowing that if she did, so that would kill him. Anyway.
Follow up Nala, Columbia. So we tie down her heart with faith.
See, the actions you perform in your day to day life are directly relevant to your heart.
I know it's difficult to believe, not talking about that morsel of flesh that's beating that's pumping the blood in your body, the heart that I'm talking about that proverbial heart, the heart that you actually see with the heart that a lot talks about. And people have eyes, but they don't see ears, but they don't hear they have hearts, but they can't understand the true realities and ramifications of the world and defeat.
So Allah tied down her heart, held her in faith, and she remained silent and to reward her. He caused the wife of Pharaoh who hadn't given birth, who needs a suckler a woman to breastfeed this child, to send out servants to seek someone who would feed this boy, but who was going to be of great discretion. who wasn't going to go to other people and say, Oh, you know, every night I go to the King's House, and I feed this kid, who they found in a river, because people then would find it bewildered.
And Allah brought moves that back into the arms of his own mother, St. Cada,
we fast forward
because we don't have time. And I want to be strict with my time inshallah.
Moosa grows up and a lot tells you in the Quran is stellar. You don't want to sell me any Arabic speakers here. But yeah, it's that you know, if you're cooking something your mom will ask you in Arabic, she'll say it so I left the food cook. Is it like, fully done? Is it half baked?
You know we use that you fit in and we say all your ideas kind of half baked it's not really thought out.
when Moosa is Stella Bella, was stellar when he gained his strength, and mature in it, and perfect permeated in it remained on it for a period of time at a now hookman Lima at that moment, we blessed him with wisdom and insight.
That's a lesson for you and I,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would mourn the Sahaba he would say that who do learn manliness a lot. Don't take your knowledge from the youngsters. What does that mean?
It's not just young in age, but it's young in practical experience of life.
It's young, in enthusiasm. It's young in emotion, young in desire, but immature, inexperienced, immature in practice, immature in skills that have been utilized over a period of time.
Moses attained strength and attains a sense of wisdom and knowledge.
He's walking in a city that fell in Medina Allah he may have left him in a hurry when he was away on a trip he comes into the city when no one knew that he's coming. You know, this is the guy that lives in the Pharaoh's castle. This is one of the sons of the Pharaoh. He enters in the city at a time when no one was expecting a Royal Prince to come. He was in humble regular clothes.
And he saw a man abusing another.
So he went in the defense of the one who was losing and who was becoming coming to a point of death becomes to the weaker of them.
For sansara he gave victory to him,
pulled them apart. When he pulled the two apart.
The stronger of them who is close to victory, seeks to attack moves up moves up. As Apple moves up a couple of
a lot tells you in the Quran moves us struck him with an open hand once no stick no Stone, no club, no gun, no knife. Moosa hate him once the men died.
Moses scared him one.
And the man died
for either levy sponsor who justice reform,
the one who he helped immediately began to say, Hey, everyone, come look what moves I did. He killed someone. So moves around.
It's real life. This is it's not Disney. This is the word of Allah subhanaw taala Moosa runs away
and the people in the city, they wake up to this news.
So Moosa comes to that man who he saved in the next morning and takes hold of it. And that man says, to read to an akuna Jabbar and fill out what not to read on takuna Mona Musleh. He actually told me cameco, delta Neff sambil ends, Moses, have you come to kill me like you killed that guy? Have you come to end my life? Like how you harm that innocent that other person the previous day saving my life? Look at how ungrateful he is.
Are you trying to be jumped out? Are you trying to be the ultimate authority upon the earth?
So move. So let me go. call ahead. I mean, I'm Alicia.
This is from the action of the shaper. Now the word trade con here in this context. According to the scholars of Tafseer. It doesn't mean that moves are recognized the devil that this is a devilish Act. The word shaitan in Arabic means it comes from the root sharp, sharp and it means you get out of all bounds you grow out of all extremes. He says to himself, this actually I did. It's beyond anything that anyone would accept. It's to such an immoral standard. It's an action of the shape on
rob the filly, my Lord forgive me.
murders a profitable law.
In the beginning moments of his life in his beginning years of maturity, ends the life of another individual. Although the intention was to save an innocent soul. He recognized that his action was
sinful in error.
So he fled he fled.
He put himself in self exile.
And there he gets married. Wow. Murder.
Flee hookah. You know it's look at the murder. Leave the city, Washington said I'm gonna leave the city you're in. Hi. Get out of there. Let's find someone. Now it wasn't really that simple
he fled the city in repentance to a law in self centered.
I was mentioned to the brothers we were talking a little bit long ride from London right? We had a long trip, the brothers forgot their tongue tongue.
London's a scary place I tell you.
So I say to them, you know the prophets I send them because they were talking about some of the issues right? You know, male female, all this happens sometimes that happens. Is this right? What do you how do you sort this out? I told them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a man comes into a mosque into the masjid as is narrated in the authentic hadith. And he says, here are some of the last events in Morocco. On messenger of Allah, I kissed a woman.
Whoa, mother Astana. How do I fix it?
The prophet SAW Selim said it had
to go make will do and make sure it's a good rule.
The man went made a goodwill group came back. He said suddenly nakatani the man pray two rakaat he said, so. Now go, wow. Now don't let this on the internet. I know someone's gonna start blogging, brother. Yeah. He says if you kiss a girl, all you have to do is make your friend. That's not what I'm saying. Here's what I'm saying. The men came in repentance. Right? Could you imagine could you have that courage?
I want you to be serious now. Could you have that courage to come to the Prophet of Allah?
Not not too ashamed for your father, your mother or her brother, whoever? Could you have that courage to come up to the Prophet of Allah
and say to him and confess to him such a heinous act, that takes some moral courage. That person had already repented. That person already knew his enormous error in the sight of Allah. And the Prophet was sent to be a mercy he wasn't said to hinder anyone. So the Prophet says to him, Look, it's in your heart. You know what you've done wrong?
You and I, if we hear someone come and say you're not getting the first question is Who was it? The prophets I send them doesn't ask, because it's shameful. You don't shame another member of your community. So irrelevant. The prophets I send them simply cures him fixes him. Go pray and that's it. You've repented to a lot don't return.
Moosa murders, leaves repentance to Allah. A bit fiddly.
Oh my Lord, forgive me for what I have done. He goes out into the desert, comes to met the end to an area which is northern Hejaz, Northern Saudi Arabia, Southern Philistine, he comes to this area, and He's resting near a water well, he sees two women they come facade at home, they have many sheep. He was chivalrous, instead of letting the two women get the water out of the well pour it up for the sheep, hundreds of sheep. He tells them no you rest. I'll do this. I got this.
They get impressed. They run.
Yeah. This is the Quran right? A lot quoting do you what these two girls said jadie attain to young you know young women. They refer to the Father. Yeah. But he said
that, why don't you hire him? It's like, Look, I just give him a place to stay. How about one of us married? All right. But they're polite. Yeah, I bet is that Jim, you know, keep him around. Enough. Hi, you know, Minister, job and colleague and me.
Because the best one for you to hire meaning to give us in marriage to one of us in marriage. is the one who's strong. And the one who is trustworthy.
strong, trustworthy now
We know about the physical strength of Moosa right? struck a man killed him. He endured walking through a desert came out unscathed by the power of a loss of Panama.
He was a person who was polite, emotional, able to help willing to assist. They didn't need to ask him, how can you help us with this?
They knew later on in life, he wasn't going to give them difficulty in fulfilling his needs.
As a proper husband kawi the COA that strength that is spoken about here is the same that the prophet SAW Selim says, and mineral kawi have gotten the logging in and movement of buying the true strong in faith, who has strength, mentally,
spiritually, physically, financially, emotionally, who stable is better and more preferred to a lot than a weak believer. Not just weaken faith, but weaken physical strength, weaken emotional strength, weaken intellectual strength, weaken spiritual and financial strength. The one who's stronger in those actions in those facets of life is more loved and dear to Allah.
Well, I mean, the trustworthy
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam we're talking about marriage right through the example of Moosa. This is mooses love story moves out how we got married.
The prophets I send them tells us in the authentic hadith is a total del Medina who who lucado So would you if a man comes asking for someone in your family, your daughter, your sister, your mother, in some cases, your aunt, whatever it may be, someone's coming quiring and you're happy with Dina who is Diem? wahoo Luca who present with you his Deen and his character, then yes, permit him to marry from your family. You and I immediately we say but isn't good character part of faith? Yes. But they're also separate in this one thing, in the thing that is related
to lineage and marriage.
So mooses character Shawn, through he was a trustworthy person. He was a person of strength and honor. So he sits down with the father of these two girls, and the father negotiates you know how there's a dowry the brothers, you know, I come to law married, some of you brothers, you gotta you know, you gotta get ready. Because even Moosa, he went through the ringer.
The father says,
on GitHub, aka deaf, Natalia, Allah and Jeremy
I will give one of my daughters a marriage to you on a condition that you work for me for 10 years.
Eight years for in Atlanta Sharon, I mean, ending eight years is the bare minimum. But if you do 10 years, then you've shown us kindness.
Wow, 10 years of service can go anywhere, you know, he's using their sheepies they're basically he's they're learning the family business, not his family business, their family business.
And Moosa fulfills that 10 years but in that time, his repentance is ongoing with a loss of Hannah Tyler. We come back to that central theme Toba.
You know how I told you about that brother who came that's a hobby you came to the Prophet I sell them to rock off you know, go on your way.
You might think oh, to rock I go on your way that that's this, you know, some easy process.
It's not what's meant by tell that is you're clinging on to it. How long you persevere in your nearness to Allah. The prophets I send them says to you and I could look near them a hopper every human being has a share of manifest errors. And the best of you is the one who turns to Allah in repentance, that sincere repentance that is long lasting, that ability to remain with a law, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. You control yourself you fight yourself, and you had manager had an upset that you had is the one who struggles with himself. And men have a lot to hold themselves back from what Allah has forbidden. That urge where you're online
and the MSN Messenger thing comes out sister Aisha. All right. So inconsistent.
So Mike and brother,
right? It's fitnah
you'll see the brothers and I don't mean to mock right
I'm not talking about anyone here in Birmingham. All right. Back home and curtain unit. All right.
The brother there come out of their seats. You know, brother
You give that brother five minutes. he crosses that parking lot.
Hey, Sally, how you doing? Oh, yeah, wait up.
Tell her you got to measure your nearest to ally. You got to measure how close you are to your Lord, by the time it takes for you to remain steadfast and how long before you break it? And then how long before you come back to a law and then how long before you break it?
tying yourself you got to tie yourself. How long are you firm on faith? We'll start cream straight. You know not, you know, curving a little straight. So moves at 10 years in Toba in servitude in love with his wife in love with his relationship to Allah and then he sees the fire.
And it says to him yeah Moosa come. He hears the sound, he hears a law. He hears a law
is law now, like take off your shoes.
In a cubby, while
you're in the valley that has been blessed near the right side for Brooklyn, amen. The tour in the Sinai Peninsula
in honor of book, I am your Lord. For STEMI, Lima Johar here what I'm going to reveal to you in any and Allahu La ilaha illa Allah put me up in your solar 30 degree, Moses and these are the same words that Omar heard that caused him to stop in his walk and turn to Allah.
In the anara book, Moses, I'm your Lord, your personal God, your elaphe book, not Rob.
Rob book your God although his wife is waiting down outside the mountain, Rob book your God personal
I'm here for you.
I hear you I see you I protect you.
La ilaha illa Allah you have no God to worship but me.
Fat booty. So worship.
Welcome Assad ethylenically and turn in devotion and prayer in my remembrance often.
All right, what's next? If have a laugh around, leave this cushy life you have
and go to forum
in Nepal talk on that word in Arabic it's a
it's a powerful word. Any word that has a shed that any letter that has a shed that the emphasis that is put you know when Chavez right, shut that strength. And that's another beautiful lesson in the Quran. You can translate that strength. It's part of the oral tradition of the whole and you can translate either at the form to Cobra, you can read that form from Cobra any other way. thonglor to Cobra means the tremendous catastrophe of the day of judgment and to say catastrophe and tremendous you just elongate it and stress it.
Ba ba ba ba in Arabic means exceeded his defined boundaries. What did Pharaoh do? He said to the people not wanting to look only Allah you have no God to worship me. Elisa de mucho Miss look people of Egypt, don't you see everything in Egypt is mine. These rivers they flow when I tell it to flow? Pharaoh he used to say to them if you don't give me your virgin, young women to throw in the Nile
you're not gonna have any water. So every year they bring them virgin. You know, it's like the Mayans and stuff they would sacrifice their virgin thrown in denial. And that continued all the way up to when Muslims entered Egypt until October the lavon who wrote a letter and he told us tell the Egyptian people that they're no longer going to throw anyone in the river and tell them to throw this piece of paper and a piece of paper said yeah, naturalness out of Egypt. If you flow by the command of a
And keep flowing. If you flow by any other ones command we don't want your water denial float. Right?
He exceeded all bounds the rivers are mine. Your life is mine. Everything you have is for me for Pharaoh.
Go to but what should you say? Hola Hola colon Latina but speak to him softly. La La Jolla lefkara reaction. Perhaps if you speak to him nicely and softly maybe he'll ponder what you say and actually have some consciousness.
Pharaoh who I just described who tells people worship Me is going to have consciousness Allah gives Moosa that hope.
He comes to Pharaoh Pharaoh rejects
Musa find me to say, yeah, nine major signs brought down upon Egypt, and found until Pharaoh says take your people and leave
svb because I'm in LA run away in the middle of the night Moosa with these people who have believed in me.
Pharaoh corners the near the water.
And the last saves them as we read in the Koran for some of us seen in the movie.
They cross fit around, which is not in the movie, fit around his soldiers, his whole administration is drowned. Well, who emmalin and the blame is on Pharaoh.
Now, what does Moosa do?
Could you imagine here, all of a sudden,
a dominant position. You've just killed the greatest tyrant known at that moment in civilization.
You've killed him and his army and his ministers.
And you've done it with the people that were worshipping Him as their god seeing that he's not God, because he's just drowned.
The moves that go back and become governor of Egypt, which is what you and I would do, right? I'll be the first one. Where does that milk and honey they're talking about? Where's that gold?
Look, I killed your Pharaoh, man. I'm the I'm the new boss. I'm the man in charge.
You worship Him. And I don't want you to worship Me worship a lot. But I'm governing you know, Moosa wonders, the desert,
out of bar owner, I'm anti hoonah fill out for 40 years.
Without a nation without a land, without shelter, open in the Sinai.
That's a lesson.
There is no shortcuts in life.
There's no shortcuts in your spiritual development. You can't be a person who doesn't have true devotion to a law. And then you start reading a book or you come to a lecture or all probably said something, I was gonna start praying and you start praying and you think that from that moment on, your whole life has changed. No, you have to persevere. You have to prove yourself to Allah. It's not just a name, claim. You're not just claiming it. You have to show it you have to act on it. You have to move with it.
And Moosa wanders around it.
Those are pivotal messages from the life of Moosa.
That is a story that is narrated to us in the Koran, to show you and on
our near and as to Allah. Moosa is a great prophet of Allah. And I'm going to conclude with this Hadith, because it's inspirational and other matters. Moosa, as the prophet SAW Selim tells us as an Iranian so Hasan Bahati will Muslim and agreed upon Hadith.
The prophets I send them says settler moves up near Milan, aka Moses, asked his Lord spoke to his Lord and requested
Yo, Matt oedema. jannetty Manzella our Lord Allah, what's the lowest level in paradise?
You know, what's minimum wage? What's the economic crisis? Like in general, what's the last line you know, the the poorest person in paradise What does he get?
So, a lot answers Moosa, and he says to him, the cooler rod Yulin Yes What do you mean and now it'll be for the last man to exit the fire
for either federal jumping and now on
hamdu Lillahi levina jerky Miny lamb your opera has an avo an aluminium.
The men is the last person to exit the fire hasn't seen gender hasn't gone to paradise doesn't know about anything of a paradise, just by him exiting the fire, he turns to a guy and says Alhamdulillah who saved me from that fire? No one who has ever been born has been given anything greater than that.
photographer to level shadow, so Allah will plant a tree.
So the man shall run to that tree sit under the tree, and he shall think that's it. I don't want anything else, man, I just let that fire
and then Allah will plant another tree that's a little bit larger that has a stream, and the man shall see it.
And a law shall say to the man Yeah, buddy.
What do you need? And the man will say, Oh Allah, I'm happy with what I've been given. But just you know, can I go to that truth? It's got a river, it's got a little stream and you know, maybe I can do something with it a
little bit later, another tree and other tree until the man is brought close to hear the sounds of paradise.
Fire holy, we are up, naming him My Lord. Just let me be close to them, not with them, close to them. So Lord shall bring him to the gates of gender as the prophets I seldom says
what you hate or level and now. But when the man looks in, it will be shown to him that it's completely full, no vacancy.
And then the Lord shall say to this to this humble servant, yeah.
A todo una laka moon humility memudahkan.
My servant would it suffice you if I gave you the dominion and the kingdom, that one of the kings of your worldly life enjoy? Would you be happy if I gave you you know the kingdom of a king from the world that you used to live upon?
The man's will say, Man, Buckingham Palace Hotel that
So Marshall say let that happen. I grant you that woman's level one mid level mid level woman Winslow.
You're given that over and over and over and over again. And on the fifth one, that person that servant shall say to Allah, except a tiara. That's enough. So Allah she'll say, to let go, I couldn't do that Alec washu unfairly. I give you those five and 10 times the amount.
And then the prophet SAW Selim says, well,
and to you would be what will please you?
salallahu alayhi wasallam Do you will be what will please you
will not come
and to you will be what you wish for.
And the man shall be pleased. So Moosa hearing this from Allah. He then asks Yara bamboo Allah Allah that's minimum wage I'm a prophet
about you know like, what about the higher up in general?
So law says left us a Lancome Yum, yum Sir, don't ask about them. Follow them follow. I'm welcome Tesla una Corolla controversial. No, I have seen no ear has heard no human being could ever comprehend it.
an abridged narration of the life and times of Moosa with pertinent lessons for us, faith and other.
There is a greater power and authority ruling and governing and influencing your life. A lot gives you choices. A lot pushes you in directions, a lot gives you intuition a lot helps you with your decisions. The closer you come to him, the closer he will be with you, the more powerful his effect will be in your life. Repentance doesn't matter how great your harm upon others, your ability to change the negative things in your life is within your hands. It's your choice, just like mu says stop. At that moment, he's about to harm that second person. He stops, he recognizes his air he moves back turns to a loss of
cleanliness of spirit and the heart shines through to others. You want to have a good special
You want to have a good husband, you want to have a good wife. You want to have nice kids who will be obedient to will take care of you and your older years. I know you're sitting here 20 years old, but you'll get old.
You want to have an easy cushy life. Let your character shine. let people see you the way those two women saw moves and the moment they saw him, they ran to their father. They saw his character they saw who he was not his faith. And that's why the Prophet separated team and who your character is powerful.
And there's no easy way You can't just fake it. I'm tired of people faking it. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us from hypocrisy. May Allah protect us from just wanting people to think of us as developed.
The Prophet says us who are former la cama shilka coffee, the thing I hate and fear for you the most is schilke joining others in the worship of Allah in a hidden manner they said how and your former Rajan for you as a human salata, Hola, mejor en
la, its example is that domain stands up to pray. But notice if someone's looking at him, so he makes sure he's really you know,
That's the example the Prophet says is the worst thing. The most feared thing has for our own people who walk amongst us who talk like us, who dress like us, who grow the beard to wear the short pants who do everything that is outward. But forget the inward. Forget that spirit of a loss of Hannah went to Allah, that spiritual touch, that we have to come back to our Lord, to our Creator. So panda with Allah, you can't fake it. It takes time to develop, it takes effort.
And finally, the adversity that you face. And the hardships that you face in life, have a great reward for you. And it is gentlemen, it is that a boat that moves or asks a lot about Don't feel shy to ask Allah, the prophet of Allah Moosa asked a lot, what's in genda? How do I get it? What What can I do to make myself near it,
come to a loss of power to Allah come to the way you have Islam, come to the path of faith. Now, just two points before I conclude, I know my time is up.
With regards to sisters, and education, really important.
And inshallah I'll email our elder and brother shall have the weapon about my thoughts. But with regards to education, I'm just going to give you a personal example. So I'm not going to talk about it from a religious perspective. 100 law, my wife,
she's, by training, qualified accountant.
We have two children, both under the age of two and a half.
She's studying part time law at the University of Western Australia. I drive her to her lectures, not because she can't drive, but because I babysit the kids in the car for the hour and a half that she's in lecture. All right. So this is the sacrifice that I as a Muslim men make for the Higher Education of my life, not because I don't earn an income from the law provides. Right? Not for her because she's going to be, you know, some hotshot lawyer, but it's to enlighten the mind, it's enlighten the spirit, it's to search and have knowledge of what is happening with us, amongst us, in our community to be advocates, it's to have insight into the workings of the world. So I sit there
and take the kids to the park for the hour and a half she has her lecture that are tutorial. Sometimes she misses the tutorial, because the kids you know, running around, and it's hot and there's you know, stuff, give her a call, hurry up.
And then we go three times a week, right?
Islamic forms of education.
Nothing in Islam ever prohibits a person from learning Islam for a person, man or woman. But don't lose yourself. Don't come to university with your aim. Oh, me dad. I need to stay a little bit back at you know a little bit after classes because I need to do studies. But you know, you're you're faking it. You know that the reason you're staying behind a little bit. Whether you're a man or woman isn't because of your studies. It's you know, to mingle to, you know, I'm just gonna chill out too much stress at home or wait till the dishes are done, then I'll go.
You know what I mean? Be careful of that. Second thing. Insha Allah is Islam is a faith. That is a practice.
Critical in practice, it's not words, right? Nothing the prophets I seldom ever said was left without practice, right? The Quran is to be used in practice. So I want you inshallah, from the messages that you receive in these sessions or the lectures you hear on the net, or whatever it is you do in your pursuit of knowledge. Practice it, even if it is a little inner mount. If you learn something, if you've heard something, practice it and teach it to others, and be from those who are inviting, in your manner and in your conduct to those who are Muslim and to those who are not Muslim. The prophet SAW Selim was sent to Russia met and Malala mean a mercy to all of humanity.
Everyone, people would throw rubbish in his face every day as he walked in the street, they grab rubbish. And as you walk by their health, they throw it in his face, they get sick, they wouldn't come out to greet him with throwing rubbish in his face. They get sick at home, one day, two day, the third day, he's knock on their door. Are you guys okay? Can I get you something? Or how do you know we're sick? My son who lives just across the road doesn't know I'm sick? How did you know I'm sick? He says, Well, every day you throw garbage at me, but for the last two days you haven't. So I thought I'd come and check on you. That's your Prophet, Mohammed Salah.
So let us be his example, in his conduct. And in his modality, I asked the loss of Hannah with Allah to show us the truth for what it is so that we follow it, to show us evil for what it is so that we will be distant from it. ask Allah subhana wa Taala to join us again in this worldly life in his obedience, or if we don't meet again to join us in general, with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so panic a lot more behind the shadow. And then, as the felucca today for Santa Monica was not too long
