Musa (alahi salam) says [rabbish rahli sadri] and the second thing he asks is
[wa yassir lee amri]
“make my mission easy for me”
who makes the mission easy?
which means by definition, by default – some of you are of technical background
the default position is – the mission is hard
and the only one who can make it easy is?
Allah Azzawajal – and He only makes it easy when, first of all, you have an open chest
and you’re a source of positivity for other
then he acknowledges his own weaknesses
that’s the third step
you have to acknowledge where you’re missing
what he was missing was – sometimes he couldn’t speak clearly
so even if you’re carrying the Word of Allah
your – the Word of Allah is perfect
but I’m not perfect
the Word of Allah is perfect
but my Dawah is not perfect
and I have to acknowledge
what about my Dawah, and what about my speech, and what about my ability is not perfect
and I have to ask Allah to cover my mistakes
and so he says [wa-hlul ‘uqdatan min lisani]
“untie the knot in my tongue – I’m not the best speaker”
Firaun is one of the greatest politicians in human history
which means he’s an amazing speaker
politicians are great speakers
they give speeches regularly
and Musa (A.S.) has a stutter
There’s no way you can win this debate
so, he says “Ya Allah! I have a deficiency, you need to help me with it”
“I need your help with this deficiency”
and then finally,
finally, look at this
by the way, what’s he going to share?
before I share this with you
what is the job of Musa (A.S.)?
the job of Musa (A.S.) is to share the Word of Allah
yes or no?
but he says
“so they understand what I say”
what is he going to say?
what is he gonna say?
the Word of Allah, isn’t it?
he’s going to say the Word of Allah
but the Word of Allah should be understandable on its own
why does he have to say… why didn’t he say…
“so they understand your words”
why did he “so they understand” – what?
because the Quran is the Word of Allah, but on this mic right now is not the – it’s my voice
that’s my voice
I have to try to explain it
I have to try to express it
And now, even though the Word of Allah is perfect
the way I explain it will be – what?
and I have to try to make sure people understand
my primary concern is I have to help people understand
so I have to know who I’m talking to
I have to understand what kind of words they can understand
what they find difficult?
what they find easy?
I don’t – I can’t make things complicated for them
because I’m concerned about them understanding
in other words, the job of a Da`i – the job of someone who carries the Word of Allah
his final concern
first you understand where your weaknesses are
then you understand how do you make sure your audience will – what?
you don’t just start talking – you – I read something in a book and I start talking about it
and I don’t care if it was
it was complicated for me
but I enjoyed it
so now I talk in complicated language, nobody understands what I’m Saying – but who cares!
no, no, no, no, no
I have to speak in the language
that people will actually understand
that is the sunnah of Musa (A.S.)
and when that happens
everything will work out
I’ll fast forward in the story of Musa (A.S.)
I’ll just share one thing with you about Musa (A.S.)
then i’ll give you the example of Rusool Allah (sallahu alahi wasallam)
I want you to think about this
who was supposed to battle with Musa (A.S.)??
you know – when he threw the staff
and the hand
who was supposed to battle with him?
the magicians – you guys know that, yeah?
so in Surah Ash-Shuraa , Allah tells us
that the magicians were heavily financed
they were gathered from all different cities – the best of them
[waiba’ath fil-madaini hashireen]
(Quran 26: 36)
“gather all the best magicians from all the cities”
they were made popular
in other words, Firaun was already humiliated
everybody knew that Firaun was defeated by Musa (A.S.)
Firaun looked very bad
so he wanted to make the magicians look good
so he spent a lot of money
and a lot of campaign
telling the people
that the heroes of Egypt are – who?
and they will save
our nation from this threat of Islam
they will protect our nation
so you – all the people need to be fans of who? the magicians
So much so that there’s an Ayah in Surah Ash-Shu’araa that people started thinking
[la’allana nattabi’us-saharata in kanoo humul-ghalibeen]
maybe we’ll end up following the magicians
if they win – in other words – maybe the government will not even belong to Firaun
may be the government will go to
the magicians – that’s how popular they became
that’s how popular he made them
and then on top of all of this
people did not want to
you know – يوم الزينة (the day of decorations)
the day on which the battle was supposed to happen
how do you make sure everybody comes out and watches?
because he wants to make sure the entire country watches this
he needs to make sure everybody sees that Musa (A.S.) has been crushed
so what does he do?
we find in the Quran
[Waqeela lilnnasi hal antum mujtami’oon]
people were told: “are you coming or what?”
people were forced to come out
to watch this battle
and everybody was told by the military and by the campaign that your heroes
the one that you will listen to is – who?
Musa (A.S.) throws the staff
it eats all of their ropes and their rods
and who falls in sajda (prostration)?
and then magicians get up from sajda
and they say:
[amanna birabbi ala’alameen rabbi moosa waharoon]
“we believe in the Rabb”
“we believe in the Rabb of Musa and Haroon”
who paid for the stage?
who paid for all the audience to show up?
who paid for the campaign:
“listen to them”
“listen to them”
“listen to them” ?
who spent hundreds of millions of dollars on the campaign?
so that they could have the biggest stage they ever had
and then they could stand on that stage
and Musa doesn’t have to do Dawah (A.S.)
they did the Dawah for him
who paid for it?
Allah has a plan
you just have to have [شْرَحْ صَدْرِ] [sharhus-sadr]
open up the chest
you could have argued 10 minutes before
so many resources
so much money
so much power
how is everybody going to hear the message of Islam?
and just 10 minutes later
you see what Allah does
that’s why, we have imaan (belief)
that no matter how bad the resources look on the opposite side
we don’t know how Allah can turn them around and make them in our favor
we don’t know
I met the minister from Europe who
was one of the most instrumental in Switzerland
who was instrumental in – you know – banning the minarets back in the day
right? and after that he was – actually he wrote
against the Prophet (sallahu alahi wasallam)
and they were trying to pass legislation and even encourage people to insult the Prophet in Europe (alahi wassalatu wasslam) right?
they were encouraging this kind of thing and he was on the front of the Right Wing Campaign
the guy took Shahadah
he’s a muslim
when I met him two years ago almost
his son was with him – he’s still not Muslim – and in that conference he took Shahadah too
the people that were at the front of hatred against Islam
Allah turns their hearts
why do we have to be depressed?
Why, do We have to be negative?
