Always in forever. We begin with a praise of a loss of Hannah who went to Ana, we send our prayers of peace upon the net nebby Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we testify with firmness and conviction that there is none that is worthy of worship but Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his worshipping slave and final messenger. I bet if Allah
I continually advise and commend myself and you with the admonishment of tequila and zildjian. And I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah makes us from those who have tequila in private more than in public. And I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes our tequila that was used within our heart, something manifest in our character conduct words and actions, for others to be dis for others to see displayed and follow as a guide in their life. Allahumma amin, we're going to talk about trust.
And trust about the law is one of those things that defines the character of a believer. And it is one of the differentiators that allows us to identify the one who is not complete a faith. Now, I want to talk to you a little bit about hypocrisy. Now hypocrisy In fact, in our RV, it means to dig a tunnel to submerge oneself so that others don't know from where you will emerge Lima and now we'll use this imagery where they say it's like a raft
who burrows but makes an escape hatch so that when the snake falls, he mean, he thinks he's trapped in. But in fact, that rat knows how to get out from a pre determined exit.
That's munafo. That's the hypocrite. That's the word in our lobby. nifa was not known to the outcome up until the BSL over word and Avi Mohammed's iclm allowed the use of used to pride themselves on you know, we spoke a little bit about Moodle. chivalry, manliness, Maru is, it's not about doing what's right and wrong. It's what doing it is about doing what is most right out of what is right. That's moral, that you don't just choose what's right from what's wrong. But you choose what is the most right from what is right. This is a distinguished higher mode of thinking of a believer,
the machinery cane of quraish they used to pride themselves on this move, that their word would not be brought to the ground that their promise would be kept. Even if it meant that the one that they were speaking about or questioned about was their avowed enemy. Abu sufian radi Allahu anhu before he was Muslim, when he stood in front of Iraq, irregulars in in in Syria, and he's asked about Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
He said Lola had it not been now Foreign Minister told me that there were people from my tribe who were standing behind me who I thought they would think of me as a deceiver and a liar. I would have lied. Look at him. He's asked about Mohammed he spoke the truth why he didn't want his countrymen to think don't ever trust double Sofia and again, he's a liar. He lied about Mohammed even though they all hated
him. They didn't have nifa nissaki merged after the hero. The motion came before the history of the hated the Prophet they would say we hate you Salalah when he was senior after the hegira
There was duplicity
and there were people who pretended to believe.
When in fact in their heart, they disbelieved and this is
mainly due to the fact that a person has no faith, but claims to have faith. And those individuals the Prophet left be and armor would say to him Yasuda law, Allah has informed you who they are, you know that they are disbelievers and munaf yakun. in their heart, there is no Eman and you know them by name. Yato, Sula, la let's dispatch them, get rid of them.
The prophets I send them to teaches us a principle in our faith that we deal people with the outward. You never look into a person's heart because you cannot you don't say, I know inside he is this. I know inside he hates me. I know inside he hates Islam. I know inside he's an unbeliever know the prophets. I seldom said lamb oma, I was not ordered to open a person's chest and look into their heart. Let them be.
There was a mine that was manger neufeldt unbelief but pretended to believe. Do you know what it is? My dear brothers, these will not feel clean at the time of the prophet SAW Selim would come and pray behind him. Salalah while he was in the munaf is the one who disbelieved would wake up and come to the masjid you'd get. Sometimes within our communities of believers, you find people who cannot even resemble them.
In Allah who were in an era when you find people who just news right through,
they cannot even reach that level of hypocrisy. La ilaha illAllah.
The minor level of hypocrisy is what this is, is it seen in signs? Now I want you to understand sometimes people misunderstand these Hadith where the prophet SAW Selim says, Come on, Mr. Muslim is the sign of a hypocrite. These are signs means it's not because they do this. They are hypocrites. There's other things they do that make them hypocrites, but these signs, they manifest themselves beyond their control.
a hypocrite cannot ever hide it, because he's a hypocrite. What are the signs he cannot control it either had difficulty when he speaks he lies even though he doesn't want to lie. People lie cannot control it. Why? Because in his heart, there is that susceptibility to hypocrisy. He that to me not hon. You trust him. he betrays ah
in another rewire there's four characteristics four signs. The fourth one, either house and a father. When he disputes with you, he's overboard. He goes too far. It's not just normal abuse, he goes way over than what you would expect for a particular situation or circumstance.
That definition of hypocrisy impact on our concept of trust, the prophet SAW Selim says, either to Mina, when he's trusted,
betrays the trust con cannot, cannot fulfill it.
One of the most important elements of trust is that a person who is unable to trust others or who is unable to fulfill the trust to others, whether it is to entrust others or to fulfill others trust in Him is because they do not trust Allah Subhana who want to add an element of Eman.
Today we want to look in Surah Taha,
and we're going to look at yesterday we looked into to talk about Adam alayhis salam, we look at one, we're going to look at a sequence of two or three,
that Allah Subhana Allah subtly informs us about trust in Him and trusting the worldly life. What is the prophet SAW Selim, tell us about this worldly life? Is the worldly life something that is deceptive, or is it real intangible? It's real in its material sense. But in this worldly life, he says to us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam like in the hadith of Lima Medina Muslim
Latta kusa, the day of judgment will not draw near until
what will happen?
you attack him, where you have one common the one people should trust, they don't trust him. And the one people should not trust people trust them.
What you can do where you get the Bousada? The one who's a deceiver and a liar, people will take him as truthful. And the one who is truthful, people will take him as a deceiver and a liar.
And true are the words of our Navy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
We're going to look at verses
17 to 20.
In Surah Taha we're after Allah subhanho wa Taala calls Moosa yeah moves in me anara book, I'm your Lord. Take off your shoes in Nicaragua did Mercado de Soto wanna stay Malema? Yo Ha. After Allah reveals himself as the Lord and the creator and the one who is Mahmoud to be worshipped by Musa. Allah then asks Mussa and this is the first area we look at. Carla, a law says to Moosa,
Allah subhanaw taala says, What am I what is what am i till cabbie, Amina kya, Musa Musa, what is it that you hold in your right hand, Moosa was a shepherd, and he was following his flock and he had his family and got lost in the mountains at night, and it was cold, and Mussa when he went up to a place which he thought had fire and light, meaning people who he could ask directions, and possibly ask them for kindness and food and shelter. He came with his stick, his staff, his rod, and a law, who sees all and knows all, asks Moosa when it can be a meanie kya Moosa, what is in your right hand, not what is in your hand, meaning I see you what's in your right hand.
sets a precedent for us as believers to take precaution in our life.
Although we have trust in our ability and in Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah, Allah demonstrates to us that moves that a rational person takes his precaution. He doesn't walk up to a camp in the middle of the night, in the open Sinai desert up into a mountain, unarmed.
He doesn't just walk up and say, Hey, guys, can I have some fire?
They'd be like, I like your shoes.
Is that your wife?
Are those who are cheap? No, he comes alone. He says to his family, you wait over here, don't come with me. You keep here he made them safe secured. He thought, yes, we trust the law. But we are people of rationale and intelligence. We are people of shrewdness. We are people who go prepared. What's in your hand? Yeah Moosa, you came for a fight. You came, what is that in your hand? What did you come relying on? Thinking it will save you?
Carla Moosa answers. He saw you
at work? Who should we hire? Me? Well, he if he.
If I was to ask, you know, this brother, my brother, what's in your hand?
The brother said a pen. He didn't say it's my pen that I'm writing with, and that I brought from home, because I know I might borrow it and someone might need to borrow it. He didn't give you all of its uses. Moosa. What's in your hand, he says, I saw you It's my stick, and then he gives full disclosure, which shows you why he should be a prophet of Allah.
No hypocrisy, full disclosure. In our faith, half the truth is a lie.
Hiding, being unable to represent complete truth and transparency is unacceptable. What's in your hand? It's my steak. At work, can I use it? For taco to lean on? I'll explain this word shortly. And I heard my flock with it.
And I have many other uses for it. He's entering a law who knows everything. Look at the word he uses at what catwa tawakkol. In Arabi, it means one of three things in English. See when you read the translations, rather, it says, I use my sake to lean on. No, three things at our code three things that when I am healthy, I prevent injury by using my stick. So I'm climbing a mountain. I don't want to roll my ankle and get
And if I am injured at work if I'm injured, I protect myself from further injury by using my stick as a crutch. And third,
I hold myself upright, so that I do not need to sit when I am guarding others. Allahu Akbar, see Moosa was traveling with his family. He was at their service, he was up and vigilant. When he says to them, I'm Cuckoo. You sit here in comfort, let me go up. He is so tired. He's lost and tired. His body is beyond physical means. But because he's a man of moral of trust in himself for his family and a lot at work or later, you my dear brother, your job is to be eternally vigilant for those who you guard. Even if they're sheep.
I tell what
if I'm injured, I go on for them.
I protect myself for them before injury. I take my precaution. And if I'm tired at work, I lean on it so that I can go on so I don't need to sit, Allahu Akbar. This second statement shows you so should be the Prophet of Allah. He's ready to serve others who should be 11 I mean,
I gather my in translation will say I heard my sheep I heard my flock with it. Oh, she'll be her the llama the mufa soon. They tell us that moose has disposition was one of such justice. And his aim was to provide equity, even amongst his flock, that if a sheep or a ram that was stronger than the weaker, younger sheep, began to eat too much of the leaves and the shrubs, he would beat it away so that the young could eat
at work while he was
on me. I didn't just I wasn't just doing the job just for the sake of it. I was just in my fulfillment of my job. Well, he Effie Hama arriba O'Hara and I have other uses in it, meaning I carry a big stick for big fellas.
I know when to talk and I know when to throw a punch. That was Moosa. He comes out of the desert, tired. Could you imagine you just cross the Sinai, you have no food, you have no water. And you see two young girls that people you know they're pushing their sheep aside, you say, I'm not gonna get mixed up in these rough eons. I need to rest I'm tired. He sees injustice done. What does he do? solves the problem. he fixes it doesn't take payment for it. Maru.
that beauty that we find that is caused for trusting Allah.
What I wish we had on me when
I have other uses for it. Carla, Allah answers him elka yamasa. Throw down your stick. Now I want you to understand this word I saw in Arabi Australia. Any of you know the famous statement of Mr. Abdul katabi Allahu Allah saw
alasa Lehman, I saw the I saw the staff the rod for the one who does the scenes that deserves the rod. What do we call us in and out of it? We call it ma?
Ma sia. It can't where you're talking about this inanimate object? Do you know why we call a stick in Arabic? So why is it called that? Why is a branch given that name? And why are scenes given the same name? Because that branch, my dear brother, it used to be part of a tree.
It used to be alive, it would carry fruit and have leaves and birds would nest on it. It fulfilled so many purposes. Ants would live on it birds would eat from it. Birds would nest on it leaves would grow from it, it would shelter people. It had so many functions, so many things. But once that branch dies,
and it's put on the floor on the ground, people The only thing that they could think of using it for is either to use it for a physical means like this or to burn it for light and warmth. It has no good in it. That same word is the description of the hypocrite. Allah says in the Quran in surah tomonaga hoon
You see them yeah, Mohammed sigh Salaam, horseshoe Busan nada, the hypocrite. They are hollow dead pieces of wood. Why is this imagery of a dead piece of wood? Being that of the imagery of a hypocrite and a sinner? Because every time you sin, yeah, the law Yeah, I'm at the law. Every time we incur a sin between us in a law and others, we kill a part of ourselves. You're putting yourself to death.
You're you've cut yourself off from Allah. You've turned yourself into a hollow, unusable piece of wood that has no benefit but to be burned.
what are you holding your moose collar he
might stick the imagery in you that higher consciousness
What does the prophets I send them say to us? The house with the Quran is not reading it. What happens to it? It's like the House of the Dead.
The house with Vicar is not established. It's like a house that is like a burial ground. You put yourself to death. How do you give your what is a man? How does a lot typify a man? He says.
A woman can
give them the example of those who were dead. They were alive and talking and breathing and eating but they were spiritually dead for a hyena. We gave that man that woman life.
They came to life. What does the oven say for us Allah hi yah. come alive through Salah. Hi Yah, come alive and Aaron your success.
Look at the imagery of life and death. tangible life, spiritual life.
Color he also at a walk.
When he if he hamari Bora, colada, and
Moshe throw it down. Meaning
don't put all your trust in what you think is the thing that will save you. You came up this mountain thinking that this thing this stick that you rely on to keep you healthy, you rely on to keep your flock fed you rely on to protect yourself and your family. I'll put it down. The one you trust has to be first a law.
You think yamasa it has many other functions. I'm going to show you functions in that dead piece of wood that you cannot comprehend. Look at the majesty of Allah. Do you think Allah could not split the sea without the stick? Do you think Allah could not have water exit the rocks of the mountain in the Sinai for the tribes of Israel without the stick? Do you think Allah could not have defeated the magician's for Moosa without a stake?
Alka Moosa put it down. It's not the stick.
It's your trust in Allah. In the surah. Moosa says often more than four times him and her own
Allah in half Oh Allah, I must, I'm scared. Allah says go to fear. I'm scared. when Moosa sees the magician throw the stakes in the stones and and the rods and they become they appear to him. You Hi yellow lie him in Surrey him and Natasha. In front of his eyes. He assumed that they had come to life. He thought that we just have enough See, he must have backed away fearful.
Don't be scared. Yeah.
Fear is natural, even to the prophets of Allah. It does not negate your trust. In a loss of Hannah Todd.
Alka Moosa Moosa throws down mystic.
I'll call her.
He immediately through it Allah is training Moosa to be receptive to the commands that he orders, Falco, immediately this fat for debugging. Remember, we said What did we say about the letter fat? It means what?
Immediately, immediately the fat when you see it at the beginning of a word, that can be used without it means that the order is instructing immediately. For alcohol, he immediately threw it for either he or heylia to Intesa, the stick came to life and quivered in front of him.
the only the description that they would use for a stick was they would say this is alpha, and if it moved, they would say hi, yeah, it's a stick with life meaning a snake. You know the word snake here. Other than thought, Man, the description is higher means in the darkness of a desert.
You see something it looks like a stick. All of a sudden it moves you say
it's alive. That's what happened to Moosa. He put down and stick he came to life for either he Hagia Tessa moving quickly.
So now a lot uses that word Haiya life. Remember we're talking about the stick be dead. Now there's the life of Russian for either here or here to test our car. Well, tough.
Allah says take it and do not be fearful.
This is the last area we look at due to the shortness of time.
Take it, hold it, it's still alive. Yeah Moosa, it's still a snake. Pick it up. Don't be afraid. Carla hoods her well at the hub and don't be afraid. Send your ad to her sirata Lula, we will return it to how you knew it initially.
These set of a yacht were a lot asks Moosa to pick it up without fear. It means Yeah, Mussa trust that I am the Lord, who can do everything for you.
And it's for you and I as it was for our Nabhi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to understand that the things that are physical in our life, are under the command in order of Allah subhana wa tada The one who is ill
and has within them or their families, someone who is susceptible, and is facing difficulty of health.
Trust Allah, as Allah made the stick, come to life, unlock and cure you from your illness.
The one who is in poverty,
as a law, change the stick and brought it to life, a lock and remove your poverty, the one who is suffocating in debt,
as a law broke the stick to life, he can change your debt to comfort.
But you have to reach out for it.
You have to hold on to it. You have to trust a law that don't be afraid. Put your hand sometimes you have to go in a place that you think it is. It's something that is not the right thing. It's not something that I'm going to be able to accomplish it. I'm not going to be able to finish university, I'm not going to do successful in that job interview. I'm not going to be able to to fulfill that work order. Trust the law and then work.
The stick doesn't jump back into move says hand Moosa has to reach for it, even though he is fearful of it. Trust Allah subhana wa Tada.
I want to conclude
with a general admonition
about your keen and certainty of faith.
Our Eman is built on to hate our belief in the law. We believe in the head and tail heat, as I'm sure you have studied in this message. And I've heard in other lessons, there are conditions to it. And there are steps within it. I will tell hate begins with knowledge. Our foundation is in fact lm and nahu La ilaha illAllah. The second step after knowing is becoming certain of what we know. See, many know we we know we should worship Allah. But we're not certain about Allah.
This My dear brothers and sisters, this second step is a critical step for you. And I especially living in a place and in time. We're not many people around us believe in our God, I'm not talking about Allah, in a god in general.
Being certain about Allah is the matcher that will change your worshiping life between you and Allah.
At the law, the reason a person does not wake up professional, it's they're not certain of a law.
Why does a person not wake up for pleasure? They know a lot. They know that. They know Quran, but they're not certain.
If they were certain that by missing that fish, Allah will ask them about it they would wake up
the one who is certain that there is glioma and there is hisab and there is accounting wakes up
the sister who knows a lot sees her now.
Weaknesses her hears her is aware of her.
time tested acts in accordance to that site to have a lot of her
The sins that we made that cut us off from Allah that make us like dead pieces of wood, the sins, they are elemental due to our doubt of Allah. Do you know my dear brothers? We're talking about, you know, maaseiah there's only two two core reasons people make a sin told me two things. There's all the sins of the world are of two categories. The first is doubt shuba
you're doubtful. Really will Allah yummy? Will Allah Allah food maybe, maybe Allah will forgive me?
You doubt that Allah will punish you.
him, yes, but he is also shoddy Do
not be a baddie, and me and him were another bee who will inform my servants that I'm the most forgiving and generous, but equally informed them that I am the severest and punishment Yaki The second reason people sing is Shaka desire I love her
I love him I'm going to make money
How am I going to feed the kids but I really I think this this is a you know it's an investment I can't I can't miss out on if I don't buy the house with mortgage Brother What if I die where my kids gonna go? Don't shower. Those are the two reasons. The two reasons you a person may Allah protect us from sin is those two reasons doubt and desire. You can control your desire or you doubt that there is one who witnesses you, or one who cares to witness you or one who will hold you accountable or one who will reward you and as such fasting swam. The prophet SAW Selim says the one who fasts Ramadan with what with Eman meaning yaqeen and deserved, knowing and hoping a lot more rewarding,
saying Allah is going to give me my reward.
Trust of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is therefore linked to our Eman I will tell he'd
leads to your key. It's not enough to just know. Now you know, you must know to a level that you are so sure of Allah,
that it transmits into your character and behavior in your dealings.
I conclude with the moment the one time reported in the studio
with a prophet Mohammed Salim and his Sahaba missed the prayer.
they were out in a platoon in an army and they were in enemy territory.
And everyone was exhausted and how do you fit in Bahati?
So they said we need to sleep they finally got off their horses at night we need to sleep a little bit. And they said but pleasure is soon beloved the Allahu Allahu Akbar. The more other than of the Prophet, he volunteered, he said he also lost the law while he was settling, let me be awake. And I will wake you before 5g because he's the more and one of the prophets isin
Human that's why there's a difference between mouse Leah and Javi.
There's a you know in Islam we have 25 different words for seeing in English you always read sin, there is them there is if there is healthy, there is Masia. There is fat, there is booked on there 25 different words that mean different things and have different rulings. And Allah has different names, Divine Names for them. When Allah speaks about a certain kind of sin, He is afar. But when Allah speaks about another if he is to Webb,
below, he fell asleep mistake.
And he didn't wake up until the sun burned their skin. They were exhausted. They were so tired, that the sun when it rose, it rose high enough that their skin came hot in the desert. And when they woke up, what do you think the Sahaba would think?
The Sahaba have never missed a prayer in their life. wadlow Allah who see him as Torah, they took dirt to bury them themselves with were destroyed. I would rather be buried alive. Allahu Akbar, because they missed what third you know on purpose. Not with an alarm clock not with a mobile phone not with anything, but they have your clean alarm will hold me accountable what
To heave dust upon their head
at the destruction that they presumed they would face, and then came the Hadith of the Prophet Mohammed Salim that you and I, we all know that roofie al column the pen is lifted from who? One who is exhausted, you're exhausted you couldn't wake up even the phone went your wife call that you couldn't wake up helaas Allah is a fool, Rahim. It is what led to him now in nesina.
ask Allah Subhana Allah
to give us your clean and to make our children firming their faith. And ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless us with the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and modality and the center of the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to attach us to the whole arm and help us to understand its art and its words and to delve into its meanings with a practical way that can influence our life. ask Allah subhana wa Taala to clear our hearts of neufeldt and to make our deeds that are private better than those that are public, I pray that Allah subhanaw taala softens our hearts and accepts our prayers and makes us from those who recite the
Quran in the depths of the night and practice it in the days and in the times that we live until we return to Him supine on what Allah Subhana Allah who Mohammed shadow Allah, Allah Allah and stuff for quite a
while after that Werner and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
