If there was any leader in the history of mankind, that will mention the Quran more than anyone else. That will be around.

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

Around was mentioned over 60 plus times in the Quran. I mean, if you look at other tyrants that were mentioned, or and other leaders, they're not so often repeated over and over again, different angles of their story, but frown was mentioned so many times why

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

That, because he was the greatest example of bad leadership.

00:05:07--> 00:05:14

That greatest example of bad leadership that surround the Pharaoh. And Pharaoh wisdom still exists today.

00:05:15--> 00:05:39

And keep surfacing every now and then. different formats, different shapes, under different names in different nations, for anism has the unique qualities but if we look at the crown of the Quran, what did he do? He destroyed himself. He destroys his people. He destroys his nation, he destroys the minorities lives with him. In Egypt, he destroys everything, why?

00:05:40--> 00:05:50

For same quality, that we have them over and over again, repeated over and over again and leaders of our time, many of them following the same concept of federalism.

00:05:51--> 00:06:24

I'm going to share with you some of these qualities, but just to let you know, when it comes to Egypt, at the time was around was one of the greatest nations if not the greatest nation of that time. It had resources, so many resources that qualifies addition to become so great. It's no wonder that the leader felt so powerful that he considered himself an Arab Boko Malala. I am you though the highest, the most high? That's what he said, when he was bragging to the people of Egypt, what he achieved what he has done, what do they have in their country and their society and the nation? He says, Carla Kong?

00:06:26--> 00:06:32

What are you talking about? Don't you see that I'm the owner, I'm the king of this nation. Like I own everything here.

00:06:33--> 00:06:41

Like everything that you see there, it's undermining, well how to heal and how tertiary mentality, and these rivers don't, they're flowing underneath my feet.

00:06:43--> 00:06:45

Like, well, here's some photos of our time.

00:06:46--> 00:06:54

So many resources that they believe they own, that they have it in under their control, like because of this, you only

00:06:55--> 00:07:06

because of this, you should follow me. Because of this, they believe that they should be the leaders. But what kind of what kind of leadership, he produced bad leadership,

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

that leadership and they have certain qualities that frowns over the history of mankind, they repeat the same mistakes over and over again. And these are some of the qualities, some of the traits of bad leadership, number one,

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

Allah Subhana Allah describes it as being aloof.

00:07:25--> 00:07:45

In nature, Allah, Allah from around Indeed, Allah, Allah, what's the meaning of Lu? Lu comes from the from the from the word above, it means, you know, ascending, that's basically rising up. What's the meaning of rising up over here? This is basically when summarises up so much. So they see nobody but themselves.

00:07:47--> 00:07:48

You're not top of everything.

00:07:49--> 00:08:25

That's narcissism. And people just see themselves and only themselves, no one is around them. They're on the top of that mountain, and everybody else is below. That's the meaning of Hulu. In that sense. Allah, Allah Azza. Allah Subhana mentioned in multiple times, that he Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Muhammad riffin, indeed, around, he is so up there, but he see himself so up there, but rising up above everybody, that's what he sees himself. We're in the hoonah, middle most ravine and he's among the transgressors, those who are so extravagant mean in terms of what in terms of their aggression and their oppression, and they have this obedience to

00:08:25--> 00:08:49

Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is the first thing and obviously, if this is a quality of a leader, someone who sees himself above everybody else, that is not equal to them. That is not one of them. Instead, he is on top of them. How can you? How can you lead people like this, when you don't use yourself amongst them, like one of them and pull them up with you? Instead, you're up there, come and catch up with me.

00:08:50--> 00:08:54

The second thing Allah subhanaw taala mentioned about around and who stuck around

00:08:56--> 00:09:32

mistakes, which means being arrogant. And what's the meaning of being arrogant right now, the process is often described in other heads. One time the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam spoke about how Allah as a judge immediately Boogeyman Allah somehow does beautiful and he likes beauty. It's okay to dress nicely. It's okay to raise something expensive. No one said that. It's haram for you, if you can afford it, and that's easy for you without extravagance, why not? And leaders do that. That's not a problem. Boom on some Sahaba they kinda like they, they fought that. Okay, so how do we define arrogance then? Carla Sorolla, Roger you have an akuna turbo hustle and

00:09:34--> 00:09:52

I mean, who knows when the proper describe that how Oregon Don intergender some of them said yada yada but you know sometimes we love to dress nicely and we like to have a good shoes you wear nice stuff. designer clothes. What's wrong with that? The professor Assam says Lacedelli criminal Cuba. This is not arrogance. That's not what I'm talking about.

00:09:53--> 00:09:55

Carl kibou bottrill

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

meaning el kebir

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

When you transgress over the truth, which means you know that this is wrong, and he's still doing it, you know, this is the right thing to do, but you don't do it because you have ulterior motives.

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

And also, then you go and you put people down.

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

I don't have dimension examples of our current leadership,

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

and how much they put down people around them

00:10:21--> 00:10:38

in all areas of Panama, what are their officials? What are their average people, someone who's struggling just to survive, we just keep they keep mocking and making fun of their life and, and their background and their, their origin and so on. They keep doing that a long time. But I did the same thing.

00:10:40--> 00:10:50

And because of this kind of bad leadership, he destroyed the nation. He was so arrogant Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he was stuck but uh, who would you knew to fill out of the behavioral health

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

that him and his Jude which means his followers,

00:10:55--> 00:11:28

a tyrant like this, or either that kind of that kind you'll find people following you. Some people they believe in that sense, nonsense, and just follow, and they became so arrogant. They thought that they can transgress against the truth. They believe that they're better than everybody else, probably. As because of that they become so arrogant, 1 million alone, and they thought that they will never be returned back to Allah subhana wa Tada. It's because they don't feel their position before Allah azza wa jal, that continued transgression is because of that.

00:11:29--> 00:11:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned, it's because of this quality of arrogance, that the crown failed as a leader. And the greatest failure is going to be not in this dunya Gemma, the greatest failure is going to be in the hereafter in the alpha.

00:11:45--> 00:11:50

Allah azza wa jal says tilaka da, da da da da da da da da, you don't have

00:11:51--> 00:11:54

to solder. This is the hereafter. $1.

00:11:55--> 00:12:17

Allah says we are preparing it for those who don't we're not seeking only one for our developers are those who are not seeking to be above everybody else that is do not seek an arrogant, they're not seeking to be in that position in life, away from what else know, Allah subhanho wa Taala would not support these kind of leaders, or this kind of leadership. The second thing we know about around that around that time,

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

that he was arrogant.

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

And he was also ignorant.

00:12:23--> 00:12:30

So arrogance and ignorance, how they come together, ironically, because when someone is all up there,

00:12:31--> 00:12:38

when he looks down at other people, he sees him very little, very, very little. That's his assumption that there were a lot of

00:12:39--> 00:12:48

what this person doesn't realize and understand that these people are down there. When they look up, they're all the way up there. They also see him very little.

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

Is it the same level?

00:12:53--> 00:12:56

He looks down upon them, they see them very little tiny.

00:12:57--> 00:13:13

And when they look up there, they also see him very little, but he doesn't see that, from his own point of view. They're way down there. And they're very tiny and little. He doesn't realize from their perspective, yes, you might be all the way up there. But look at you still tiny and little.

00:13:15--> 00:13:26

You just live in that illusion that you're so great, because you're above everybody else. And ignorance is one of these quarters of the surround time of the of the time of Musa alayhis salam.

00:13:27--> 00:13:50

When for when Musa alayhis salam came to sit down, and he was talking about Allah subhanho wa Taala and he was trying to introduce, believe in Allah subhanho term, what was the the argument of around he kept insisting on himself of being the leader and the Allah and the God that you just follow and so on. Then finally in the morning, the heat of that argument, he asked moussaka, Omar, Abdullah Al amin,

00:13:52--> 00:13:55

who is he that you're talking about? Who is this loaded? You're talking about?

00:13:57--> 00:14:02

Obviously, if he doesn't know Allah subhanho wa Taala Why would he humbled himself to him sipan Hold on.

00:14:04--> 00:14:16

Allah as it says in the Quran, omaka de la casa de la. They haven't given Allah azzawajal de cada reverence spec is due to him. subhanaw taala it's because of that people transgress

00:14:17--> 00:14:23

and no martial law has been a battle among those who truly fear Allah subhanho wa Taala, among the servants of those who have the knowledge.

00:14:25--> 00:14:36

And if you don't know Allah subhanho wa Taala properly, you don't know who he is, you don't know his power, you know, his abilities, his attribute level attributes and his his actions of one on one to Allah, then you'll make your own assumptions.

00:14:37--> 00:14:48

And that's when people they fail. leaders like this when they think that all what they're doing is part of their great achievements. That's their own product. It's all what I've done like the cartoon said,

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

he said that all of us who do Allah, Allah, nd that's because of me, as my knowledge as my skill. earned it. That's how he

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

believed in the loss of Hannah medema example.

00:15:03--> 00:15:40

Allah made it easy for you and it can make it easy to take it away from you either. So either way, you should be grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. But around, he remained actually arrogant, and he continued to be ignorant. And with his ignorance, of course, as Allah says, well, de la Serrano, como la hada, around a de la como, he led them astray balmaha he couldn't guide them. He doesn't have the qualification to guide the people to safety. He doesn't have it doesn't have the proper knowledge to take them that route.

00:15:41--> 00:15:45

So people just fall. But he was just very eloquent in his speech.

00:15:46--> 00:16:00

very eloquent in history. And that's what impressed a lot of people. But when it comes to substance, yeah, nothing. And the law says well, the law in Omaha, Omaha, again, brown, he led his people astray when he couldn't guide them, the loss of Hannah what's

00:16:02--> 00:16:12

the other thing we know about leaders leadership around that bad leadership is around is around cause that's the social fabric to be destroyed in his own community.

00:16:14--> 00:16:18

He divided the nation as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, Allah

00:16:19--> 00:16:33

brown he transgressed. And he was so high on the land, meaning being so arrogant, what did he do was Allah Allah Shia, he divided the nation into groups and sanctions.

00:16:35--> 00:16:41

He make them sections and groups and, and obviously, when people are divided, they become weaker.

00:16:42--> 00:16:49

They get busy fighting each other, that they become completely unaware of the weaknesses of that kind of leadership.

00:16:50--> 00:16:56

They become vulnerable, busy with each other. And they enjoy now just gonna be on the side.

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

No one paying attention to them.

00:16:59--> 00:17:24

Well, it's a very actually old wisdom to say that, you know, divide and conquer. And that's exactly the same thing surrounded to the social fabric of very Islam in Egypt altogether. Allah subhanho wa Taala. Again, this was Allah Allah Shia infotype, at the main home with a novena home was the handsome he was after one group and leaving the other one.

00:17:26--> 00:17:36

And he is actually using the other group to recruit them to find that group that he announced to be the the villains in his own community. And people followed.

00:17:37--> 00:17:39

Our people follow anyway,

00:17:40--> 00:17:41

in the academy move city,

00:17:43--> 00:17:48

Alonso had declared found to be boosted is corrupt, because in corruption,

00:17:49--> 00:17:58

and unfortunately, people they follow that they thought they were doing something right. But it ended up being bad for everybody. And as a result, the nation collapse

00:18:00--> 00:18:41

Subhanallah we might not think that this is might come in any anytime soon to this Oman to this nation and to this country. But for anism actually, it's repeated thing over and over again happen in every almost corner of the world, Muslim or non Muslim nations. When leaders they are come out with this kind of attitude, or this kind of matter of law. That's the byproduct, they go after their own people. But don't keep them divided. They want to keep them weak, so they can flourish. That is a greatest example, again, of bad leadership of the things that we have seen from our own. Being a leader, you're not just one individual, as a matter of fact, you're a product of a certain you know,

00:18:41--> 00:18:55

kind of, you know, group around you, advisors. And Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke about the butanna which is the surrounding it, the advisors of the around Alberta say that bad advisors, group of advisers. And we know who we are.

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

A lot of people don't they, they have their own agendas.

00:18:59--> 00:19:31

And they want this the direction of the society to go to certain a certain direction, their own mother nature goes to the direction and they keep forcing the hand of God into that direction alarmists that they wanted this to happen and they're using whoever can take them then. And he's also not another puppet that is following that is even Allah Subhana spoke about the butanna the group that Asana brown, brown when Musa came to him, and he argued with him and he had a dialogue with him and he saw the miracles of the miracles of Masada his analyst has given him now he freaked out. So he went back again to the people around him.

00:19:32--> 00:19:42

He says, this is a great magician, what do you guys, what do you want me to do with him? Suddenly from being honorable, kumala army Oh, Lord, listen to me. Now he's going back to his advisors. Hey, guys, what can we do about this man?

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

So he realized, okay, I can't find him by myself. So let me see what do you guys say? So he introduced to them that he's a magician. So what do you guys suggest that we do with this magician? So they gave him the bad advice? Hey, call all the magicians in Egypt. And let's see, we'll debate him.

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

Should we do that? And they call them and they use their ad for everybody to come and gather and see the ultimate debate, like the whole week that we had this past week, actually, the ultimate debate between the two parties right now.

00:20:17--> 00:20:35

And then the moment they introduce these magicians in front of musala is Salam. And moosari salam, he showed them his miracles that Allah has given him an hour to Allah. The same magicians that they call to debate against Musa alayhis salam, they saw the truth.

00:20:37--> 00:21:01

They saw the truth and they became the first believers, they prostrate before Moosa, then you that around is wrong, and mu says, what they could see now. They got the knowledge, the knowledge of sight, they are keen, that Moosa is indeed is beyond this human human experience is different. So the one that frustrated and they followed masala salon for hours in trouble now,

00:21:02--> 00:21:13

how is he going to convince the people who called him he called them to come and witness his victory to now testify for his defeat. But he has the eloquence of speech.

00:21:14--> 00:21:17

He immediately as a great politician is stood up and he says,

00:21:18--> 00:21:39

Okay, I see now he's turning the table around right now he goes in Rama, Chroma Khartoum, oval Medina Dooku. Allah, this is a plot this is a plan you've been doing the night before you've been following this, you know, from from the Nigerian denied. So you can take us away from our, you know, our tradition, and our society in our ways, and so on.

00:21:40--> 00:21:56

And then he says in Allah kabiru, como la de la casa, you guys are now you have your master over him. He's the one who taught you these tricks them. And she's bringing in all these arguments, and the people are listening. And guess what happened? The people believed

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

they saw with their own eyes.

00:22:01--> 00:22:17

But when he spoke, they're mesmerized by the language of speech. And that, you know, argument and they believe them lazos and says that the huff Acoma who fought in the home can offer us a common recipe for our own stuff, como

00:22:19--> 00:22:23

esta has just kind of like he looks at them lightly like he doesn't take them seriously, really.

00:22:24--> 00:22:28

You know, there are a lot of leaders like this, right? They make decisions, you know, they're tired and they don't care.

00:22:30--> 00:22:44

That same thing with brown, he didn't care, even though he's the one who brought them in. He's the one who called him for this, actually, this whole event of debate and so on. He told you that magicians will win anyway. And then with their own eyes, they saw everything against everything he said.

00:22:45--> 00:23:05

But because he always takes them lightly, he was able to convince them again. Well, that was planned before. And they believe they saw his lies, one after the other one after the other, but they still believed him and they still follow him. In Hong Kong okoma fest classifiion they themselves were disobedient, meaning they like that.

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

Sometimes it's not really about the bad leadership. It's about us as a community, that we are not we're not participating in our civic duty to make sure that these leaders are actually straighten up. That is the right thing for the community. It's us to blame.

00:23:24--> 00:23:42

It's us to blame for the production of these bad leadership around was nothing different. It's because of this, he became a tyrant. And because of this, unfortunately, he destroyed the nation. akoto Cody had our stuff rollout in Morocco, was manifested through in Nova for you

00:23:56--> 00:24:27

Alhamdulillah Allah alameen wa sallahu wa salam o Baraka Nabina Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sallahu wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira mama bad about Allah the brothers and sisters, there is so much we can say about this example of the crown being the bad leaders, the greatest example and the best example for bad leadership as was described and mentioned the Quran No wonder Allah subhana wa tada mentioned it over and over again over and over again in the Quran. The question that we need now to answer really is why was it mentioned that frequently interpret what's the point?

00:24:28--> 00:24:29

Is it just for our entertainment?

00:24:31--> 00:24:50

Is that just so we can blog about it and talk about it and, and writes analysis here and there? No, of course not. That's for us to learn. Learn that we don't we can't afford the leadership of that kind of that kind. You can't afford it. But then the remainder is for me and you is that, okay? If they are the byproduct of their society, what does it mean?

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

is it's my duty and your duty that you make sure that leaders like this, don't just come out like that and get away with it.

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

Are you responsible as these leaders become leaders, you might say, well, how could they become leaders in the first place? Well, you appoint them user you assign them, and this decide that how it goes.

00:25:11--> 00:25:24

So if you don't want these leaders to become the contemporary Pharaohs, or those who follow the fair organism as their own ways and style of leadership, you're going to have to come out and be the Messiah of this time.

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

You need to be there, to take people to save, you can't be there to show them the truth. You need to be there to come with the evidence with the heart and help other people to learn and know what is right, and how to do it, and what is wrong and how to avoid them.

00:25:40--> 00:26:07

Again, there is so much we can say about this even Musa alayhis salam when he did his part he asked Allah for protection. bacala Musa in Europe, Europe become included limited Kabira. Now you may not be Ahmed Hassan Moosa at the end, when he did his part. He says in me, I seek refuge with my Lord and your Lord minko limited from every tyrant or every arrogant law, you know, beyond his up who doesn't believe on the day in the Day of Judgment.

00:26:09--> 00:26:28

So after he's done everything, then he went to Allah Europe I did my part, as a refugee with you. I seek protection from you for myself and for my alma, from the arrogance of these people. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us Allah Gemma, I asked you all to do your duty. I asked you all to go out and do your duty and make sure

00:26:29--> 00:26:31

that this kind of feminism doesn't happen in
