a lot of banana means that allow us to kind of you know, Mohammedan Oregon, with sort of a man was reciting from tonight pajama pocket. All right.
Wow. Again, sort of that's easy for people to remember to remember subpanel and memorize what is so unique about Surah Surah what is the, the major story the major theme of Soto speaks about whom? Yusuf Ali Salaam, right?
Who musasa It speaks about muscle is most of the surah is about Musa alayhis salam. So Allah will talk about the story of Musa like I said many times in different parts of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala repeated that particularly surah Moosa more than any other surah in the Quran.
More than any other story in the Quran, the story of Moses was repeated more and more in many, many different ways. We look at the story of Musa ceram each time it was repeated, the theme was different Allah subhanho wa Taala is bringing to our attention at different side from the story of masala serum so one time the focus is on the conversation between Muslim and the crown. One time was the focus and Musa and Benny Israel in one time the household of Musa his mom has to when he was born and so on, so there's always some emphasis on some specific direction for us to focus on tonight. I want to share with you something very unique. When Allah subhanho wa Taala when Allah
azza wa jal ordered musala his Salaam with the mission to go around and ask them to give him many slaves who could take them to the Holy Land. The Philistine moose Allah Serrano, he relies a lot I mean, there is no return. That's a loss of Hanna windows commanded him. He said with his own eyes, or ears. This is a miracle Allah has given a miracle right now and he's going to be standing before around and he is going to go and invite him to Allah subhanho wa Taala and asked him to bring bunnies for you out with him.
Whenever you go and speak to people specifically of that caliber, you speak to the crowd. What do you guys call this?
When I'm speaking to right now, what do you call this? public speaking? That's called public speaking. And it's an art
it's an art sometimes you need to some speakers like myself, you fall asleep right? And sometimes you have other speaker lecture almost no Mashallah you're awake. So it depends. It's a skill, it's an art and in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala was teaching us the skills of public speaking the prophetic way. So my mission to you right now my message to you knew go to public speaking, then prepare like a prophet.
Prepare like a prophet. How do prophets prepare for public speaking? Look what Allah Subhana Allah says about masala Salaam when Allah told me Salah Salem you go to brown Illa for Ana in Otago, you go to brown standard for him, speak to him. He's a talent Be careful. Like I was preparing him he's not going to be easy for you.
He didn't say go to speak to around negotiate with him. He might listen to you. He didn't say that. He says you go to and I'm telling you from now. He's a tyrant. Which means it's going to be rough. Get ready for it. So what to expect for most of the time Allah subhanho wa Taala then if Allah La Musa go respective around and be careful, he is rough. He's a tyrant. He's gonna transgress. Like, it's not gonna be easy for you. What do you expect most to ask for them? For Allah to make it?
Easy. Right? So he said, Carla, like saying okay, this is the case, your law. What was the first Moosa asked for? For a ride? private jet
salary? What is his vacation time before I go to brown? He didn't ask for this. The first thing when you prepare for public speaking, if you're on a mission to give Dawa if you are on a mission to give a presentation to talk to people, what is the first thing you need to ask for from Allah subhanho wa Taala call or be a slightly sorry.
The first thing you're like you send him it to him. I know he's rough. You know a lot he lives sadly, in the translation of a study, you open my heart to it? What's the meaning of open your heart to something? What does that exactly mean? That you believe in it?
That you believe in it? When you when you go into when I give a presentation and you made the presentation with your team and you're not 100% believing in what you're going to be presented to the to the board? How the president How does the presentation sound like? You don't seem convincing because you yourself don't seem to be convinced. Your heart is not there.
Your heart is not there.
musala is Salam colosse he believes what does he need from Allah subhanho wa Taala your Allah opened my heart to
your surgery, and this is for all the MBA.
Why was the mission of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as difficult as it sounds to us? We read the spirit of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what was a successful Why was it easy? Because Allah in the Quran told us we needed to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said to him, lm nasura la casa de
la casa de Musa Mohammed sobre la sala
He says a panel that didn't we open your heart to it
we made it easy for you.
He said color of beshara so the first thing you ask a lot your Allah make it easy on me open my heart to this make me too strong believing that what I'm going to speak about is actually open my heart to it first that's the first thing second column surgery and then what they say well yes sir Lee Emery make my affairs easy because I'm going to do my best but the end result is in the hands of whom Allah subhana wa tada
So Moses telling Allah Hazara, I'm gonna do everything possible to I'm going to prepare everything in the best way possible. But from you I asked you to make it easy. Like whatever I prepare for your Allah make it easy. That's the same thing for you. You're going to read books, you can listen to tapes, you probably going to watch you know videos and do this and do that all these kind of things right? But then at the end, still you need Allah subhanho wa Taala to make your affairs easy, make the trip easy for you. Make the presentation easy for you. We don't need any have the hiccup with the microphones with the with the PowerPoint, for example, or this so that whatever you asked to
make everything easy for you, westerly Emery. And I wanted to say
that the men listening Yala, untie the knot on my tongue. What does that mean? Make me more eloquent in my speech, when I talk that people would listen.
Why is that? Because not everybody who talks really can, you know can make it easy for people to understand.
It's it's an art. And that's why they say everybody communicates but few Connect.
You won't be talking for hours.
And people will be listening. But how many is actually tuning in and how many is running out. So you need when you talk. You need the people to connect with you. And he's asking Allah, Allah make me eloquent of mice in my speech so that people connect with me so I can deliver in the best way possible against a speech speech acts as an art, when you come to speaking to people, it is an art, so is asking you to give me the art of public speaking. That's basically and then then he said, You have Kahoot Kohli so that they might understand what I say. That is the connection part.
The first part your alarm, make me a good communicator. And the second part, he says, and you know, a lot make me a person who delivers right? That they understand from me. It's not that like they're struggling to figure out what he's talking about.
When I talk, make it easy for me to communicate the right way, and make it easy for them to connect with me and understand what I suggest.
And then what what did he say
for you? If you'd be given profited. If you'd be given proper hypothetical. What is the first thing you do?
You'd go on Snapchat and you make a snapshot on it. I became a prophet.
you brag about it. When Messiah became a prophet, what did he think about the first thing? Wow, this is high, right? Who's the most Who is the one who deserves that hire the most among all the people you could think of? For Muslim, my brother?
Like you know what? Let me call my brother into this. You're like, Can I have my brother to help me? Since you told me it's gonna be rough and frown is gonna be tough. I need someone to help holla was Ali was your Amina Honey, can you just give me an advisor someone to be with me I need to help. I just kind of take that that mission on my own. It's very hard to get to be hard for me was when he was urinary Haruna my brother Harun, who should be ezri armaskin that you OSHA, OSHA, which was basically we got like you can strengthen my, my case through him. Who should be here? Why should it be emiliania Allah making my partner I can make him a prophet. Musa was the messenger. And how long
was the Prophet?
Why should it be Emily? And then he gave his reason. Cain was a backache at all, one of the kuraki Theater so we both we both make the spear Do you remember you together like we strengthen and assist each other? What does that mean, Mr. Partnership, even in public speaking, when you go on a mission anywhere you need someone to be with you. Being alone, it feels lonely sometimes. So you need somebody that will always remind you, I'm here for you. I'm here with you. You're doing great job, someone to cheer you up.
And that was Harun masala is someone to cheer him up to know that I can talk to him and I feel confident about it. And then he says, How long should that be as you were should Kofi Emery kinosaki the amount of Coca Cola kakatiya in a cocoon Sabina basura. And then he says yo Allah, you know better.
After he made all his case, it says you see us and you know what is best for us. That's what it means. Like I'm just living my case through Allah. So Allah subhana wa
I said to him, Allah cut outta silica masa wish granted.
We are giving it to you all what you asked for, has been given to you. Next time when you prepare for a presentation at our mission, program, activity, talking to your spouse, your children, anything that requires you communicating with people, make sure to memorize that. This is in Surah Taha chapter 20 from 25 to 3520 2535. memorize this, this is memorized. Every time you're going to be speaking with whomever you can think of in this world. Remember to recite this ayah and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for you. Open your heart to it. Make that first easy for you, make you speak what it was you could communicate in the best way and you connect with the people so they
understand you and then hopefully you have someone who will assist you in helping shall Allah make that Allah subhanaw taala make it easy on all of your enemy.
