So, we'll make sure that this is would be something at any for sure. In summer we would like to have this as a conversation and also hopefully we can

00:00:13--> 00:00:23

get you guys engaged as well. We'll have a variety of topics, we might start a little bit with or some may be stories from the prophets and others

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

and we will see more reflections more of you know.

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

Practical points, hopefully it will be a very colorful nights and colorful lights during this night, and he chose sort of to safaris Sadam

00:00:43--> 00:00:51

use of the story of use of his very unique and sordid use of only mentioned once in the Quran.

00:00:52--> 00:00:59

If you notice, only mentioned once in the Quran, every other surah was mentioned several times, except somewhat useful.

00:01:01--> 00:01:07

And rhythm Rahim Allah raised this question, why Surah Joseph was mentioned only one time.

00:01:09--> 00:01:15

And the answer for this they said, because the the main theme of Surah Yusuf,

00:01:16--> 00:01:22

that the struggle in Surah, Yusuf was over the dunya

00:01:23--> 00:01:29

with over worldly matters, a jealous they were jealous of their brothers.

00:01:30--> 00:01:39

And because of that this story never was repeated. Because of Quran, its focus is not over worldly matters

00:01:40--> 00:02:29

or unfocused on religious matters on the matter related to the actual. That's why the story is of all the Prophets and Messengers. You see the struggles over and help. Well, Barton Eman will cover. And Marcia Jota is all against to heat and schicke Musa isa the story of all the prophets. It's about struggle between the truth and the falsehood, the tribal struggle between two heathens should and that's why Allah subhanaw taala keep repeating these stories. But since use Valley Sam story, mainly it is about over worldly matter, it was only mentioned once. And also that shows you any that's something I can add to that as well. I said that shows you that the dunya is not worth much.

00:02:30--> 00:02:52

Not worth too much to be mentioned more than one time. It's hurts, but it's one time is enough. You know, that's my first point that I want to raise in regard to the story of use Valley, Sam and I will say, so how do you want to do this? Do you want to go through this aura and just different sections? Or whatever you want? Just what's let me start with this?

00:02:54--> 00:03:06

What's the thing that stands out and sort of abusive? Absolutely. Like, what do you think of sort of that is one the first thing comes to your mind. So for me, I am going to think of the name of Allah subhanaw taala lovely.

00:03:07--> 00:03:13

Yeah, because when you think of when I remember when I was doing research on this name,

00:03:15--> 00:03:59

people would or the scholars would always refer back to the story of usif to see as a manifestation of this name of Latif. And Latif is basically the one who combines between knowledge and intricate knowledge and how to maneuver good to a person. And the second pillar is incredible care, gentleness and kindness. That's why it's translated as the caring or sometimes it's translated as the subtle. And they would always say, if you want to look at the manifestation of this name, then refer back to the story of use if the story of use of the story of use of the story of user I kept seeing the story of use if and when you look at use of is that um, story, you see a person who from the

00:03:59--> 00:04:14

outside, it keeps looking like it's going from bad to worse. So he's going from being in the company of his family, to his brothers wanting to betray him to him being enslaved, and then how does it get worse, he's accused.

00:04:15--> 00:04:55

And then he becomes in prison, and it just keeps going from bad to worse. But we actually see through that progress that Allah subhanho data is maneuvering him to be at his eventual destiny, with power over Egypt. And so a person when they see how ALLAH SubhanA data is guiding hand, even though a person isn't actually able to witness it, or a person doesn't perceive it, you realize the power of Allah subhanaw taala his name so even as you're going through your own challenges in your life, even as you're going through your own slavery or your own imprisonment or your own metaphorically, of course, that you recognize that ALLAH SubhanA data is a thief, and that's why you

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

have that combination at the end of his story. He says in the

00:05:00--> 00:05:23

About BLT if only Maya shot at the end of the story, it says My Lord is lucky for wherever he was. And so I just think of Allah subhanaw taala does a lot for use of ideas that up as he's taking him through this journey. But luckily, if lovely if it's something very gentle, very subtle, like, you know, let's look at a barely touch him

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

in which it means that the last month I'll bring to you things in a way that you will not even notice it. In he planned for you in a way you will not attend it. And who will think that the will will lead to the palace, who will think that the jail will lead to to be the king to be in the king prisons? It's just a very mysterious way, or that the way that he exits from prison is by a dream. Yeah. Not not soldiers came to him out to revolution or like, they're just a dream came to rescue him. Very good.

00:06:07--> 00:06:49

hamdu lillah wa salatu salam, so in that, my bad. So when I think I'm sort of useful, I actually always think of when it was revealed, and when it was sent down to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and the scholars mentioned that it came after what is known as the year of sorrows, the very sad time in the life of the prophet. So some of them were, he lost his uncle Baldwin, he lost Khadija robiola Juana and it was like, and it was also after when, when Hashem or they were banished to the ravines and they experienced starvation. So it was a really tough time. And the score was mentioned that Allah Subhana Allah sent him this Surah

00:06:50--> 00:07:37

At that sad time to say, this is one of your brothers, a prophet who had this experience worse than your experience. And it ends with a good ending, everyone's happy at the end. And so that means this you can relate to the surah. And you can, like use it as a means to basically, I can't think of another word but assuage your sadness console console. So that's this always stands out, because you're always sad, he was going through things, and it proves that you can relate to the Quran. And think one of the beautiful things also, you would notice in Torah, we have Ramadan, the night where the Imam and I mean regularly we're every day we're doing a juicer, like in normal days, the night

00:07:37--> 00:07:46

where it's sort of abusive, the Masjid is crowded, because everyone loves the story, and everyone can relate to it in one way. And so that's what I think. So,

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

in regard to this, you're gonna want to think about all sides.

00:07:51--> 00:08:16

You've lived in LA, you're called upon anyone who's in sadness or rich sort of story, the story of use of will bring relief, you know, no matter what, think about yourself, this is one of the things that I reflect upon. So like I said, spam my use of profit, so support the bad loss by that then he was a slave.

00:08:18--> 00:08:28

Then he was sold, betrayed, put in jail. Yanni I can guarantee you no matter what you're going through, you're not been through this stuff.

00:08:30--> 00:08:30


00:08:32--> 00:08:40

Era as Paulo and he is what newbie you McCullum? He is a prophet is not like me and you.

00:08:42--> 00:08:48

You only need a piece of Salam has called him Al Kareem Abdul Kareem Abdul Kareem Abdul Karim.

00:08:49--> 00:09:07

And yet he is one day here and there and one day here and that's like I always say you one day you are the statue and one day you're the pigeon. You know, so don't be any. That's how live is

00:09:08--> 00:09:10

if you get the point

00:09:12--> 00:09:12


00:09:16--> 00:09:17

I'm not

00:09:22--> 00:09:28

sometimes from Surah Yusuf I wanted to see what you reflect numbers. This was all my phone, my hair reflection

00:09:31--> 00:09:36

something sometimes people hate us, not because of our

00:09:37--> 00:09:43

bad character traits or the bad things in us. Sometimes people hate us because of the good things in us.

00:09:45--> 00:09:53

Use of was not hated because of something bad he did. It's because of his good character trait because of his inability.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

You know what if you see people hating you don't feel bad because people so many people

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

I hate you talk bad about you. It's because of your good character traits. And by the way, it's for all of us. I always say when people talk bad behind your back, just remember, they are behind your back for a reason.

00:10:16--> 00:10:17


00:10:18--> 00:10:21

We say don't hate you don't hate me because you ain't me. That's what we say.

00:10:24--> 00:10:45

If I'm a chef, I Rahimullah had this line of line of poetry, where he would say the most unfortunate of people is the one that's not envied by anyone. I can imagine if you meet someone and nobody envies him for anything, that means this guy has nothing. Not a club, not manners. No, there's nothing. So the fact that someone is you, it's a good sign.

00:10:47--> 00:10:50

If you've only got three haters, you got to figure out how to make them seven by summer.

00:10:55--> 00:10:55


00:10:56--> 00:10:58

* I know you always teach so to know.

00:10:59--> 00:11:11

It's karma. There is a sense of authority upon not to Quran surah juicy Surah Yusuf Allah was bad, but nor Felter. He said, Whenever you read Surah Yusuf followed with Surah to know.

00:11:12--> 00:11:15

Can you think of why? Yeah, great.

00:11:16--> 00:11:42

Because one of the well, I'm just guessing here, right. Now, one of the great things that Yusuf Ali Salam did was he resisted the wife of God Aziz. And so to know, from verse one to verse 27, is just deal Well, actually, more than that, is just dealing with this topic, a topic of Zina and chastity and if abstaining from the Haram and, and everything related to it. That I guess correctly? Yeah.

00:11:44--> 00:12:28

I don't know. I can guess like you the same thing. Speaking of which, since we're going to the issue of the scandal, one of the ways for sure to make to the bottom of the Koran is to reflect on the names mentioned. So I'm a little bit heavy on this. And shameless plug, there was a course in faith essentials that shahadi than I did that you can refer back to called Light lost in translation, the art of contemplation of the Quran, on faith essentials, but use of it is one of the things that strikes me is a person is most vulnerable in their own home. So when you have your you're a kid, and you have bullies at school, for example, where do you go for protection?

00:12:29--> 00:12:34

When you're a boy, and you have a bully at school? Who do you go to for protection?

00:12:35--> 00:12:37

You can answer Who do you go to for protection?

00:12:38--> 00:12:41

Your parents or even closer to your parents?

00:12:42--> 00:13:23

Your older brother, right? Your older brothers. But what do you do when the people who are your threat or your brothers themselves? Like where do you go from there? Like if you've got a problem at school, you can walk a different route home, you can avoid this neighborhood like kids do that all over the world. But what do you do when it's your home? That's the threat. Right? And so there's there's no threat that is closer, no physical threat. And so Allah subhanaw taala protects him and diverts him away from a physical threat in the last moment, he's about to be killed by his brothers or they want to kill him. That's the plot. And then one of them says, a lot, talk to us if do not

00:13:23--> 00:13:47

kill us if and cast him in the land or throw him in the weld. And he will be picked up by some travelers. So in the last moment, Allah subhanaw taala diverts them away from his harm and protects him. Point blank headshot, I call it, it's diverted away from him. And then there's another threat that we experienced some sort of Jusuf and that's a spiritual threat. And this time the spiritual thread is

00:13:48--> 00:14:22

at work, right? What are the two let's see who fe, beta and Neff see, the one who he's in her house, he can't go anywhere. You can't switch jobs. If there's a fitna at work, when you live there, and you're asleep. And then she locks the doors. And she says, Hey, tuck and she summons him to herself. And again, it's a point blank headshot for someone like him. There's no way that he's supposed to be able to avoid that this is a spiritual threat of incredible magnitude. And Allah Subhana Allah protects him again, last moment he's protected. And so

00:14:24--> 00:14:54

you see a use if someone more than anybody else sees Allah subhanaw taala has protection over him when he sees all of that protection being removed from every from every other direction. And so it's culminating again, that at the combination of the story use of it he said, he calls to ALLAH SubhanA data by saying until we leave dunya and akhira You are my protector in this world and the next to offend him was the man who decided he recognizes this Wilaya of Allah subhanaw taala both spiritual and physical over him.

00:14:55--> 00:14:55

Pretty good.

00:14:56--> 00:14:58

speller when he was saying about

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

a tomes

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

Paola end use of was saved from the wolf, but was not saved from his brother.

00:15:07--> 00:15:33

And he did not harm him but his brothers did. And it hurts when the one who hurts you the most is the one who closes to what a Buddha will pull back shut Doom about that. And Allah Yemen repelled Hassan Mahanadi the most any, the most harmful harm comes from the one who the closest to you. Which is parents.

00:15:34--> 00:15:41

Yeah, he will lie sometimes like, it's a moment of regret when parents think about how they harm their children.

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

verbally, emotionally, physically.

00:15:48--> 00:15:54

It is a moment you have to know how, how hard this is, or your spouse

00:15:56--> 00:16:16

harm our children to harm their their their parents, or their their brothers and sisters. The closest the person to their harm is the hardest. It's the worst. And this is something you should be very careful not to fall into this. Yes.

00:16:18--> 00:16:20

I just read something interesting about

00:16:21--> 00:16:48

about how the story started with some type of envy or hazard again, where the brothers were envious of the position that use of artists that I'm had with their father. And and they mentioned that it's similar to how a police also had this envy and jealousy towards Adam Alayhis Salam being preferred and being better than him in a way. So it's, like, very powerful and look at to what extent that it took them.

00:16:49--> 00:16:53

I don't know that sometimes. I wonder, when they when they first suggested Let's kill

00:16:55--> 00:17:21

the younger brother like that much and be that much hatred towards them. And he's small, like, how are you going to do that? Was? I don't know, I was wondering, how are they going to do something like that? That shows you how severe it is? Do you think shear one of the lesson we can also say here to parents, be careful not to insult insert this kind of envy in the heart of your children.

00:17:23--> 00:18:01

And another word this envy towards use of did not come from nothing. It came from the amount of love that the father showed to use of a sedan, yet he use it was innocent. But also that is something that parents should learn that that extra attention, sometimes you give it to some of your kids can cause that fracture, can cause that problem in the family. So be very careful how you treat your kids, between girls and boys, boys among each other girls among each other. The first and the last, especially the last one is always like the spoiled one, you know,

00:18:04--> 00:18:46

the last kid or the only boy I have and it's almost like spoil and that's why the only girl I have only girl I have you know, it can be like, can be can be dangerous. I thought also that's a good point. I know another I know someone who his mother has a favorite amongst the siblings. And it never bothered him said, but then again goes back to the benefit from sort of using that it never bothered him because instead of use of he saw that, you know, sometimes you can't control which one you love the most. And also from the prophets, I send them loving I shouted Allahu anha amongst his wives the most. So he just took it, and it didn't hurt him. It didn't affect them, not because he's

00:18:46--> 00:18:53

better than the sons of jacobellis. But because he learned it from sort of usable so I thought you were gonna say it was because it was him.

00:18:54--> 00:18:54

It was

00:18:58--> 00:19:21

I was gonna ask, you have the plot of the brothers and they make a statement where they say kill usif or yakugaku Moto Moto coolroom embed here called manslaughter Hey, after that you Let's kill them. And then after that, we will become righteous. How many times have you seen this scenario or argument play out amongst people

00:19:22--> 00:19:42

all the time. And these people will plan to commit a sin and then repent sincerely, like how do you know it's going to be sincere, planned to be hurt later and remorseful later you can't do that. So people will say like, let me live it up while I'm young. I'm at university and then after that after I'm done with university then I'll become

00:19:43--> 00:19:52

after hedge I'll become righteous or these types of things after we get married. Exactly. After I get married. I'm gonna be on the straight and narrow and people start coming back from the Bahamas.

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

Exactly. So

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

You know what, sorry, what is the sad thing is that this is like an old trick that chiffons been using for 1000s of years in the Quran like, yeah. So one guy said something he said, It's shaytaan that smart that he can keep getting us with old tricks. Or are we that dumb? Yes, it hurts

00:20:19--> 00:20:36

to keep tricking us in the same way every time. Like, if you should, I always tell people, if chiffon got you with a new trick he never got any human being with before. You could be having lunch that night with your friends would lie, you got me. That was the new one that we never saw that one before, was the same trick 1000s of years old and you still fell for it.

00:20:39--> 00:20:49

There is one thing also I learned from the story of us is that no matter how you try, you're not going to be always able to protect those who you love the most, especially your children.

00:20:51--> 00:21:24

Sometimes us as parents who tried to bring our children so close to our chest, and be very protective of them. And we don't want them to have their experience on life because of that sense of protection. But you know what? You need to learn that you're not going to be able to protect them all the time. Yeah, his family up at the salon is worried about just going he goes used to go with them for just a picnic. Can imagine go to the park or just a picnic outside? No, he's worried. Yet Allah subhanaw taala made him lose his son for 40 years.

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

Isn't that something

00:21:28--> 00:21:30

that's intense? Would you let your daughter

00:21:31--> 00:21:33

have a picnic or go somewhere?

00:21:37--> 00:21:37

That's hard isn't.

00:21:39--> 00:21:55

It is it is it is hard. Any maybe some of the young people who can can share some thoughts or parents, by the way, the floor is open. You guys have something like that can be a challenge. But you know, like, I'm having a very hard time for example, to let my son drive.

00:21:56--> 00:22:22

You know, I'm having a very hard time zakat. Abdullah, he's been like helping, you know, with that big for me, it just, I am worried to let go to law. My God, you know, he just hard for me. It just the instinct of being protected father, but I know I should let him start driving, you know, you know, I'm not worried about him as much as worry about him asking for a car, but no.

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

But the interesting about how how he

00:22:32--> 00:23:14

presented his concern, he said, a halfway we're halfway. Yeah, good luck with it. I'm afraid that the wolf will eat him. And so the Scott was mentioned that sometimes what you fear, or maybe you shouldn't mention it, because he actually gave them the idea. They said, We throw him in a well, or kill him. And then what our father feared the wolf, that's happened to be the same. You know, you would think like, Oh, what are the odds? I told you that I'm afraid the wolf will eat him. And then you come and tell me the wolf ate him? Like, would you especially then be wary of wolves during this trip of yours? But yeah, don't tell people your fear, because we can use it against you. Don't tell

00:23:14--> 00:24:02

and I will expand this. Sometimes don't tell people use your weakness. And I will say this to the young couple who get married. Many times. She will be like, Oh, here's my sweetheart, you're my soulmate. And she told him all the things that she did see what things that she did not talk about? You'd like to make that like, and he will use this against her. He will tell her about things and she will lose this an aha, your um, you told me you did that. Is that an all the time I counseled people all the time. And this is all comes up. That secrets that they shared in peacetime and become information in wartime? Yeah. weapon against the person. You know, and I'm not saying like, if you

00:24:02--> 00:24:40

did, like, you know, you had a child and you never told them that your child and I'm talking about stuff like crazy stuff like that, you know, I'm talking about like, you know, just a small thing like you use it's going to be used against you in the future. There is no need for that, you know, they don't tell you about your weakness and your fear, because some people unfortunately use it against you. I want to prove that story that what you're saying, through this story. We were traveling one time, and we're having breakfast during this trip, and one of the young brothers with a SIP as well. 16 he saw a roach on the wall tells you what kind of restaurant we're at, but he saw

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

a roach on the wall. And this far, and he started shivering and he said I'm terrified of roaches. What do you think happened the rest of the trip? First of all during the food I got up and they had those decorative long like wheat little stalks and stuff like that. So I took one and then I walked behind him and I ran it across his you know

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

For the rest, and I'll tell the true story. My wife is here she's afraid of roaches. I bought a rubber Roach from eBay one time remember that Roach, I would leave it here in the kitchen and leave it there just you have to create excitement in your life. And that's what I'm saying.

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

Thank you.

00:25:20--> 00:25:29

Yeah, when the laptops are sort of Yakka, la wetek, fair, k 2k. They're in the shape. I'm gonna live in sunny, I do.

00:25:30--> 00:25:37

Sometimes, you do need to share all the good things that you have with everyone. Would you agree?

00:25:38--> 00:25:39

Yeah, I would.

00:25:43--> 00:25:48

I mean, it's about moving in silence, because not everybody who

00:25:49--> 00:25:55

hears good news from you is necessarily a well wisher. And people have envy and people have

00:25:57--> 00:26:08

you know, jealousy and these types of things. And that's what Yaqoob is that I'm said that they will plot against us. And also right from the beginning. When use of Allison, I'm told him his lawyer said that when he talks

00:26:10--> 00:26:35

about it, don't tell your brothers, though. Yeah. And I read one statement from a scholar I really liked he said, that's also proof that they understood how to interpret dreams. Otherwise, why not tell them they wouldn't understand. You know, sun and the moon. Okay, forget to just do none, but they could understand it. And look at the care of his father from the beginning. Don't even tell them your your dream, because then they're gonna plot against you a cute look at Kayla.

00:26:36--> 00:26:39

One of the things that stands out always in my

00:26:40--> 00:27:23

is the repetition of, of two verses and sort of use it for the end of two verses where the prisoners come to him. And they asked him to interpret the dreams. And they say Nana, rock, I mean, adversity, and we see you to be of the people who are the people of Hassan, he's a prisoner. Like, there are some people who, no matter what circumstances you meet them in, they just carry this air of dignity. They carry an air of of right there, they seem regal. And they seem like people have incredible integrity and use of ideas that I'm carried himself like that, even though he was a prisoner. He was distinguished from other prisoners, they recognize that in him, and then it comes later. When use of

00:27:23--> 00:28:03

ideas Saddam is the basically in charge of the treasures of Egypt. And his brothers come to him. And they say the same thing we see you to be of the people of Sri not documented personally, we see you to be of the people of our son use of it is that I'm had an integrity that was independent of his social status. It was independent of his confinement or his freedom. It was independent of His external circumstances. It was something that was within him, he was a person outside, no matter what the scenario that he was in. And so that was a beautiful pairing that came in the Quran. Your position or circumstances doesn't change who you are. Yeah, there's a very nice example. You know,

00:28:04--> 00:28:09

if I bring because some people use this all the time. I'm sorry, I was under stress. Okay.

00:28:11--> 00:28:43

What I mean? Yeah, any under i Sorry, I'm going through a tough time. Okay, so and I see this a lot here. And he wouldn't like the lately. So So what have you under a lunchtime is that means like colors. That's the whole point under a lot of time and stress. That's where you real what's really inside what you are made up comes. You know, it was a big fitna. shefa you know, it was okay. If you bring a orange and you squeeze the orange, what are you gonna get?

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

Orange juice?

00:28:47--> 00:28:49

What are you gonna get? Pepsi?

00:28:50--> 00:28:54

Fanta. When you squeeze an orange, what are you gonna get?

00:28:55--> 00:28:59

What if you got, you know, coffee?

00:29:01--> 00:29:10

That means not an orange. That's how you are when the world wouldn't the dunya squeeze you? What's your juice comes out.

00:29:11--> 00:29:18

When you're under this stress, and you're in a tough time, what's inside you comes out.

00:29:20--> 00:29:35

Servitude comes out of your frustration and cursing and dropping the ball and they don't want to talk to anyone. And I'm like, you know, and you just lose your mind. Yeah, that's that. That's really a moment of reflection. That means something needs to be changed on you.

00:29:37--> 00:29:41

And that's something very, you know, I became Richard Chang.

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

That's Alicia. I was in Toronto. A young man came to me and he said, I came to Canada when I was 16 years old. I used to clean cars on the street. I start from zero. I said I married a girl. She's half of the Quran, masha Allah, she's from

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

A Slavic Quran school, Toronto. And he said, I said, Your Allah, if you give me $1 million, I will give 50% of my money for your sake. He said, I made a million dollar I give half a million dollar donation.

00:30:15--> 00:30:50

The other half was Canadian taxes. Okay, so he said next year, next year, I gave, he said I give 30% the third year, and next year, I didn't make a million I made almost $2 million, or yet I get only 30% or 30. And 300,000. Not a half a million. And he said, now share five years, five years after that promise. And Chef, I make millions and I'm not going to tell you how much I make way more than $1,000,000.02 million dollars. Wallah he or she has last year I didn't give my second

00:30:54--> 00:30:55

speaker fitna for me.

00:30:57--> 00:31:01

You know what? Because what's inside of him is not the generosity

00:31:02--> 00:31:09

is just it's just you have to dig deep to who you are. And to work on that.

00:31:11--> 00:31:16

That's why they say money is a magnifier. What's in your heart? Yes, I don't know.

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

What else? Yeah.

00:31:20--> 00:31:21

Oh, nice. But

00:31:26--> 00:31:32

I also like what you said earlier about when his brother said, don't kill us if

00:31:33--> 00:31:40

there's a lesson we can learn. One has one of his brothers said don't kill yourself. That means even evil is

00:31:42--> 00:32:24

not evil. Evil is not wonderful. Some of the only one of them don't. They want to kill him once a don't kill him. Just let him to be sold as a slave. And that's very important because sometimes we don't understand that. And real life. Any even people who your enemies are never are not on level, and you have to be wise. And if you're going to pick a fight any you're going to deal with people pick the one who loves evil because that's always you have to choose sometimes between the two lists evil. What else if this question is about tying it to your football today. So I think it just came to me because I'm closest on this side not because they probably thought you hear me that's why I

00:32:24--> 00:32:25

came to you.

00:32:26--> 00:32:42

Could you tie in this story of use of regarding your husband endurance? Man? Let me think about that. I'm trying to remember what my football is about. But what about how about this, I'll give you something that you can reflect on it. Because I think this is a key point to sort of juicer.

00:32:43--> 00:32:45

Parliament had Allah

00:32:48--> 00:32:51

what a bad route to UNEF say, for starsan.

00:32:52--> 00:32:54

He said arugula.

00:32:56--> 00:32:59

When she tried to seduce him, his arugula.

00:33:00--> 00:33:10

I tried to seduce him, and he held tight into the rope of his Lord, he held tight until last Python. There is so much to be said here.

00:33:12--> 00:33:46

Maybe it will start with the fact that that the opportunity was there like in an incredible way meaning like their home alone. doors are closed. No one is there. She's the one who's initiating it. And not only beautiful, he's beautiful. And she's wealthy. He's young. And then the scholars mentioned he was young. He's young, but very he important handsome. Yes. Handsome people and see themselves handsome. They are. You know, they have that confidence and confidence can lead them. He's a stranger.

00:33:47--> 00:34:10

What stranger? What? How stranger can be a point? Yeah, these reputation is not, not a big deal for him doesn't have to worry about his family or anything like that. That's why they said was you know, that people when they travel? They don't care what they do. Yep. Because when they travel, nobody knows that. They don't do the same thing in your own community. Yep. Yeah, yeah. So all this and the one more.

00:34:11--> 00:34:14

They said her husband wasn't even a jealous type.

00:34:16--> 00:34:34

They said how do you know? When he found what's going on? He comes in and there's a commotion. After all, the recent use of Aragon hug don't worry about this user. And then he keeps them in the house. So he's not even a jealous guy. So that helps more kind of add one more. Yeah, she threatened him.

00:34:35--> 00:34:42

She said if you don't do what I order, I will put you into it so he can have a lot of justification for that.

00:34:43--> 00:35:00

Just a really quick subtlety about that one. If he does not do what I command him, they use Jenin what a Hakuna Mira sedated. So these are two types of noon toolkit. One is heavy and the other is light. They use Jenin is heavy

00:35:00--> 00:35:19

And the scholars mentioned that this is because this is something that's in her control. He can he can be in prison she can get him in prison when a when a municipality and he will be of those were humiliated. This is light as if to indicate that that is not under her control. His reputation and his dignity is not under her control.

00:35:20--> 00:35:22

Okay, go ahead, continue your point.

00:35:25--> 00:35:32

Your point was, I'm sorry, should I shouldn't have interrupt him. So the point is, oh, that was my I just made the point that you know, by the law, you were saying

00:35:33--> 00:36:11

with all the thing that she is offering him it's so easy for him to do the Haram but that will get he said, Muhammad Allah, even these verses, people pay money for it, search for it, you know, all this power. Today, unfortunately, and our life today Haram is so easy. It's so easy to the heart. It's so easy to commit adultery. It's so easy to steal money. It's so easy to do take lawn with rubber. However, it's so easy. Halal is much difficult, unfortunately, but yet mad Allah what else we can learn from this. Anything should come to your mind.

00:36:12--> 00:36:24

Allah subhana data's is the source of protection. I mean, that's your that's your greatest fortress. It's even greater than your own discipline or your own. What have you. Yes, sometimes people rely on

00:36:25--> 00:36:39

my daughter I raised her very well. You know, don't worry, I have manners. I have middle age. I am Egyptian I'm at the age I am this I am done. My ethnics miters you know what, what's really protect you as Allah there is nothing else can protect you.

00:36:40--> 00:36:45

Also, when you see when do you see our oath of Allah when you see something well

00:36:47--> 00:36:47


00:36:48--> 00:37:07

turns you off. Yeah. never discussed your and that's how you should see since even though she's beautiful, she's powerful. She's I've seen this is very it's a loss. But he said something so bad. Now the law. I owe the villa share.

00:37:09--> 00:37:13

The sin in the heart in the eyes of the believer looks so ugly.

00:37:15--> 00:37:19

The more purity in your heart, the more the sin will look so ugly in your eyes.

00:37:21--> 00:37:28

You know why the sin? Any one person wants told me share here Annie Anna, I am not attractive to any Muslim woman.

00:37:30--> 00:37:39

He said I saw he proposed to 23 sisters. He told me I proposed to 23 sister. I couldn't find a single one of them attractive

00:37:41--> 00:37:44

of needles and find them attract. Yeah. Well, hello.

00:37:45--> 00:37:47

How attractive is the

00:37:48--> 00:37:56

23 I said to him something interesting. They said if you stop watching pornography, you will see them attractive.

00:37:57--> 00:38:02

Cuba in his face. I don't know him. I never met him my life.

00:38:04--> 00:38:05


00:38:06--> 00:38:11

He said what? I said if you stop watching pornography, you will see them attractive.

00:38:12--> 00:38:16

Should Are you accusing me? I said no. I'm advising you

00:38:21--> 00:38:32

and he got quiet just like this. Quite just, we call those moments you know? Yeah. It was in main center. I still remember the occasion to detail.

00:38:34--> 00:38:35

He looked at me and he said to me

00:38:36--> 00:38:41

this tough face all the time sudden meltdown. And he said

00:38:43--> 00:38:45

with a very weak voice is chair.

00:38:46--> 00:38:46

I'm trying

00:38:48--> 00:38:48

but how did you know?

00:38:51--> 00:38:59

I said because what I learned from what I've been reading all my life, that those who are so used to the Haram they will never see the halal something good

00:39:01--> 00:39:03

or never see the halal or something attractive.

00:39:05--> 00:39:12

For you to say that passage is so corrupt. That's why young man and woman I'm warning you

00:39:14--> 00:39:29

don't take it easy to watch the Haram on TV on videos on because it will take away from you the love for the halal it will make the halal look so attractive and it will affect your future

00:39:31--> 00:39:34

woman you could ask me Maria lineagen Be more money than that as

00:39:36--> 00:39:38

people who are sick even water tastes bad

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

when you so corrupt that's why I entered on that I have Allah said the one who's so into musics and lyrics will never enjoy the Quran.

00:39:49--> 00:39:57

Oh, don't I take the time of the brothers but I will never get one of the guys who like he sends with music it's like that

00:39:58--> 00:39:59


00:40:00--> 00:40:14

In he was arguing with me it's Helen and Toronto, also. And I asked him this question and said, I want to I want to ask you a question. He's a religious person. But I want you to answer me honest. I said, Do you enjoy reading the Quran

00:40:15--> 00:40:17

is a very famous singer. I'm not gonna mention his name

00:40:19--> 00:40:21

as CDs out there.

00:40:22--> 00:40:25

And he said, and I said that he said

00:40:28--> 00:40:28


00:40:31--> 00:40:32

it's very hard for me.

00:40:35--> 00:40:49

To call him Mr. Allah, He takes away the love from the Quran. The love for the love for music's so it This replaces so anyway, I just wanted to do something. One thing that you have to learn from studies of the issue of life, Half

00:40:50--> 00:41:19

Life half chested the Alpha Kappa Alpha admin stay away. You control your eyes and your private parts and your senses from the harm from the indecency. Is it fair or possible to say that because use of ice that I'm setting my the law, that when he ran to the door, they did appear people did appear like that was part of the protection of use of it, his setup? Fee is 800 Bob like otherwise it could have just been locked in nobody's there for hours. Right? It was.

00:41:20--> 00:41:25

It was strange that There ended up being people there. When usually.

00:41:28--> 00:41:31

You know, even in the Hadith of the seven, we're in the shade of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:41:32--> 00:42:05

A man that when a man who is invited by a woman, the scholars say why a man who was invited by a woman, that that person will be in the shade because they said women are basically more like organized, meaning she's be more concerned about dotting her eyes and crossing her T's and secluding the place. And she's less messy than a man in that sense. And so in Malatya disease, it would be imagine that she would have made sure that the scenario is actually prepared and presented. And yet still, somehow There ended up being people there nearby.

00:42:07--> 00:42:10

Is that fair to say that that's possible? Because you said a stat

00:42:11--> 00:42:57

Yeah, below check. And the last point that I have rescued him, have protected him like I said earlier, but also in any one of the things that Allah subhanaw taala when he wants to show the virtue of someone, when he wants to show something, he will show it, he has his own way of doing it. When he wants to show the how he innocent he was, he showed when he wants to show the status of use of over his brother, he nobody can hide that. What I'll show him something since we're on since and their effect, something also maybe a little bit touching on psychology here. So when they came to their father, Allah subhanaw taala says they came to them Asia, and yet, they came at night, crying,

00:42:57--> 00:43:35

of course, pretending to cry. So to have the will to series for why they came at night to explanations. Why did they come at night, in particular, some scholars said they didn't want to see his face, and the pain, when is his expression when they tell him that we lost your son or your favorite son. So that's why they came at night with the others group of scholars, they said, because they don't want him to see their faces. Maybe they're not all good actors, and he's going to study them hard, and they're gonna have to hide, and they didn't have electricity back then today, imagine at night, the house will be dark, and they break the bad news. Now the other thing is, they said,

00:43:37--> 00:44:19

Woman entered the movement in Ghana, when Hakuna saw the team, they said, and you're not going to believe us, even if we weren't telling the truth. So the if you ever, like watch these videos on how to tell how to spot a liar How to tell if someone is lying, the reason there is this science existence that when you lie, it is so unnatural to lie that your body or your face, or your language will give away or give the wife the fact that you're lying. And that's why they have the polygraph test that just measures on a very small scale, increase in heart rate and breathing and sweating, because it's unnatural. So a lot of times when you watch these videos on psychologically how to spot

00:44:19--> 00:44:50

a liar, their body parts, and sometimes their head is saying the opposite. They showed this one clip or this guy, politician, of course. And he's saying, and I'm willing to prove this in any way possible, take any test to show that I'm innocent. And he's saying no, with his head, but he's saying I'm willing to. So they said, You're not going to believe us, even if we were speaking the truth. So their language indicated they were lying. Whereas at the end of the sutra, when they were truthful, they didn't say that. They said, We're in Los Altos, and we're truthful.

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

Even the language gave it give it up and I think that's really powerful. That was the gift of all the psychology students and psychologists in the audience you know, the

00:45:00--> 00:45:09

One who does the photograph to protect line, that's a master degree equal to master degree. This guy's salary start 100,000. And

00:45:10--> 00:45:18

it's to very, very, by the way has a huge demand in the country. Like, it's a very, very interesting

00:45:20--> 00:45:22

topic. And it's 40% Only on the machine

00:45:24--> 00:45:38

like 40% and the 60% on the one who making the test or that the interview. So the determination if you're lying a lot 60% or lie on the personal not on the actual machine, actually only detect 40%

00:45:39--> 00:45:44

mothers have that ability, when the kids are young. Before they even lie that don't.

00:45:45--> 00:46:05

There's no talk, yeah, woman in general can detect emotions more than better than men. Yeah, one of the questions that I have for you is, who here has an experience who has experienced the time when you wanted something, and even made that for something, and it didn't come at the time that you wanted it? who's experienced that before?

00:46:07--> 00:46:09

Okay, I'll handle all the time comes.

00:46:12--> 00:46:19

He's got the Amazon Prime drought. So the use of it Salaam is in prison.

00:46:20--> 00:46:35

And he interprets those dreams for those prisoners. And the one that is going to get out, he knows that he's going to be in the company of the king. And he says, Let's coordinate and robic. He says, Remember me in the company of your Lord.

00:46:37--> 00:47:21

But that man forgot. Now, when you have your hopes and dreams and aspirations are tied to this one way out, this is your this is your degree, this is the project you're going to do. This is the program, this is the city that this is your dream, this is the way that I'm going to go and your hopes are tied to it and your aspiration, and then it doesn't come through how do you feel? Do you feel let down? Do you feel like you've given up do you feel, but that delay, actually was use of ideas that I'm being fast tracked to his destiny? Because when when that man comes out of prison, and he walks up to the king, and he says, King, I've got a great guy in prison, he can interpret

00:47:21--> 00:47:38

dreams. Does the king have a dream that he needs interpreted at that right moment in time? When someone comes and gives you a business card for something you have zero use for you've got a brand new car and you meet a brother at the message and he says I fix cars. Here's my card. What are you going to do with that card? You got a brand new car, what are you going to do with that card?

00:47:42--> 00:48:02

I have no need for it. But if you meet a brother at the masjid and he says I fixed cars and you've got your one ride and it's broken down and you've been trying to figure out somebody to meet. You've tried to meet up with a mechanic and all of a sudden you meet his brother and he says I fix cars. And he gives you his card what are you going to do with that card?

00:48:03--> 00:48:43

I'm going to invite him to dinner tonight. You're coming over to my house like I'm about to cook for you right because you have their skill set has matched your pressing need. And so that man has forgotten about use of when does he remember you said it said he remembers use it when the king has a dream that he is obsessing over and that he's trying to get resolved and so when use of it is that it's finally something he gets a direct audience with the king that you might not have gotten before and the king is able to personally interview us and personally witnesses integrity and personally and so use of ideas to naam is now fast track in a way that he otherwise would not have been able to

00:48:43--> 00:48:51

do right and so sometimes ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada may delay what we want at the moment that we want it so that he can actually push us forward in a way that we never would have imagined.

00:48:52--> 00:48:53

Yeah pool

00:48:54--> 00:49:00

between his dua to be answered. And the answer is 40 years.

00:49:01--> 00:49:18

He made to ask for his son use have to come back for two years and what's amazing. Then when he was told that Binyamin his other son was lost and taken by the king. What did he say? Is Allah yet teeny beam Jamia?

00:49:20--> 00:49:24

And he just lost his second son. And he said now Allah will bring both of them

00:49:25--> 00:49:43

and you think that will be a breaking point he will be any he will lose hope no. They said Allah will bring both now see how much strength and after 14 years Allah subhanaw taala answer is to add and use of came back then. And the same shirt

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

shirt and you saw the strategy shirt is the one that was used to prove the TLS was killed. Also the shirt is the one thing that was used to bring back that you could sign up

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

tend to give the glutton for Jakub that his son use of still life and the shirt was the what proved his innocence in the house

00:50:08--> 00:50:15

so shirt is a very interesting element and they call it the story of the three dreams and the three shirts

00:50:18--> 00:50:23

anyway I thought the story of the shirt of the beginning shows that there is no such thing called perfect crime

00:50:25--> 00:50:31

yeah they claim that T is eaten by the wolf but the shirt is no no holes in it

00:50:32--> 00:50:33

it's perfect just blood

00:50:35--> 00:50:37

they forgot to amateurs

00:50:39--> 00:50:40

go ahead

00:50:41--> 00:50:42


00:50:44--> 00:50:50

00:52:12--> 00:52:19


00:52:25--> 00:52:27


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

check them out

00:52:53--> 00:52:54

I like how

00:52:55--> 00:53:17

when they wanted to take money I mean was the younger brother of us. One time I heard that yeah, say they said Epson mana Hana nected. They sent sent our brother Nick that he said Nick, that was his name. Said. But Nick, he said it. He said Bechtel is the name of the

Yeah, and that guitar up his name was Benny me when they wanted to take Benny I mean, they said Allison mana Ahana send our brother with us. When as they thought he stole they came back follow in nebula Gazzara your son stone and for the married people, I don't think I need to explain this. When your son does something wrong. Look at what your son did. And when he wins first place, my son, my boy the same thing. Mother, you know, I used to always think what if imagine someone could do a class

00:54:01--> 00:54:39

for non Muslims on the Quran. And these fine points just to sit let them see how no human being can write like this. It can you imagine if someone accused and maybe saw Selim reading the Quran, that means in the year of sorrow, with all the problems, he has to come up with these incredible details. How's that possible? So on the topic of details, this is something that our friend Bill Alcon always talks about with regards to Surah Yusuf, he's got a film background. So he's taken four years of film, school and all of this type of stuff. And so he when he talks about sort of Yousif,

00:54:40--> 00:54:59

he has this beautiful reflection on it. And that is for any story. This is something when you study storytelling, a story requires conflict. So for example, if I tell you, I left the house today, and I got on 45 and I drove all the way to spring

00:55:02--> 00:55:03

That's it. That's the story.

00:55:04--> 00:55:44

You guys are waiting for something. What are you waiting for? You're waiting for conflict. Right story requires conflict. Do you? Was there an accident? Was there like Did something happen? Like what's the conflict of the story. So when a full length movie is usually given, there's usually one major, one major conflict that is resolved over two hours. If you're reading a book, there's usually one major conflict that's resolved over 200 pages, or 300 pages. And they might have some minor conflicts in between. So let's use if introduces seven major conflicts, and it resolves seven major conflicts in 14 pages. And so the conflicts are number one, the dream that use of either Houston

00:55:44--> 00:56:29

MCs. So that's number one. Number two is that his brother's betrayal. And then it's slavery. And then it's the seduction in the palace or the scandal. And then after that, it is the the external, the conflict with the women. And that is imprisonment. And then it is the king's dream. So these seven are all introduced within the first seven pages of the surah. And then it gets resolved in reverse order. So the first thing to be loved is the king's dream. And then use of ideas. Sometimes imprisonment is then resolved. And then it's the exoneration of the women. And then it's the exoneration of the scandal of the life of a disease. And then he is lifted from slavery when he

00:56:29--> 00:56:54

becomes the treasure of Egypt. He's no longer a slave. And then his brother's betrayal is resolved. And then finally, it culminates with the dream. And so he describes it as poetic balance, and that this is something that's impossible if you're talking about a sort of loss of advice, and I'm a single person, and but not always likes to mention this for Pixar. And they pump out a year, every year they pump out a feature film, Pixar requires 12.

00:56:56--> 00:57:17

They've realized that to tell a full story, it takes 12 years 12 takes 12 human years to create a story that's deserving of a movie. And so they usually have teams of 12 working on a movie so that they can produce one and Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, a single individual is able to create this story that is perfectly balanced, that is resolved in 14 pages. Yes.

00:57:19--> 00:57:25

One of the most incredible scene in the story of his face, when he said laughter three body.

00:57:27--> 00:57:31

This is for me, it's just incredible. What that means. He said,

00:57:32--> 00:57:33

no worries.

00:57:34--> 00:57:42

In the end of the story with the story with his brother, I just want you to imagine know what he's after what what did he do to him?

00:57:43--> 00:57:55

They betrayed the through him and well, he was slave. He will he went to jail. He went through all this. He lost his parents and all the suffering all this wrongdoing

00:57:57--> 00:57:57


00:57:59--> 00:57:59

sees a

00:58:00--> 00:58:01

new page.

00:58:03--> 00:58:10

And he willing to start over, he willing to forgive and to forget. And he willing to move on?

00:58:12--> 00:58:54

Isn't that something? It's incredible. It's incredible. It's just something that we should learn. And not only that, they also said he didn't they didn't just take him away from his father that took them away from his father who was a prophet. I mean the learning the knowledge you were gonna get that's like direct knowledge drones right. Phenomenal high level. He missed out on that. And then also in the end he says after the shaytaan drove a wedge between me and my brother Yeah, he didn't attribute it to them. He didn't say you did this to me he said the shape on have misled you how nice any he giving the Vainio values yeah and he he find them find an excuse for them by by the Anessa

00:58:54--> 00:59:08

shape and obeying you by a shape on the one who caused the struggle between us. He didn't say it's it's you guys Emery Nano? Yeah, he included himself. Yeah. And he included himself Yes. Under the same thing

00:59:13--> 00:59:20

Yes, perhaps aren't is isn't any app domain cry?

00:59:22--> 00:59:25

I heard they do actually. I heard that.

00:59:27--> 00:59:31

Kidding. Of course they do. And the greatest month was had them cry so don't even go there people

00:59:33--> 00:59:48

Yeah, I learned that you know crying is not a is not a shameful thing. You know men cry because sometimes we have this old men don't cry you know even we tell our boys men don't cry. You know, don't be cry baby.

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

But no tears are and also how to use it shows you that people have different emotions, different level of emotion. Please don't judge

01:00:00--> 01:00:43

People, there's more people, there's people more soft than others more, there's people who are more they're weaker than others like they're very level he you don't expect everybody to be tough guy you know, not everybody the same. And that's also important for us to, to realize and this is you can see the personalities of the prophets and messengers in the story of Yusuf Ali Salaam. They say heavy hearts like heavy clouds sometimes this heavy clouds need a little bit of rain to drops in order for the heavy clouds to be light and you're heavy hearts when you drop these tears you know it became your heart become light

01:00:45--> 01:00:49

there is a verse I don't know if he if you paid attention to before

01:00:50--> 01:00:51

it was part of a scar

01:00:55--> 01:00:57

what a Marbella should do

01:00:58--> 01:01:00

to you now who helped command where else?

01:01:02--> 01:01:19

We give you sir hook, Manuela maturity, and knowledge, or wisdom or knowledge night and pay attention to before. What do you think now? As I'm saying it about which one comes first? Danny? Yeah, that's a good point to

01:01:23--> 01:01:23

use with.

01:01:24--> 01:01:30

The knowledge comes and then wisdom. We don't get wisdom before having knowledge. But what do you think of

01:01:31--> 01:01:55

any? First of all, mentioning these two what that means to us? The importance of having both. It's not enough to have information you have to have wisdom to read. It was not enough with that list. And also that sometimes wisdom are more important than now that No, I studied with a share for about three years. I only learned from this check one thing and three years.

01:01:56--> 01:01:58

Zero nothing else for

01:02:00--> 01:02:13

us back to save that. I don't remember I benefit anything from this guy. except one thing. Hope it was big. Okay. It's big. Because this thing's became something a code in my life.

01:02:14--> 01:02:15

Maybe Maybe two.

01:02:17--> 01:02:17


01:02:21--> 01:02:28

not God. Yeah. Well, he always repeat this. He said phenos He said there's people.

01:02:29--> 01:02:31

Aquila, whom Akbar min Elmo.

01:02:33--> 01:02:40

There are some people that are up there, their intellect, their wisdom is bigger than their information.

01:02:42--> 01:02:58

rufinus l Muhammad Akbar Rahman Aquila. And there is people, they have information way bigger than their intellect that would be again, their wisdom is their Apalis. He said, The or the worst.

01:03:00--> 01:03:03

It's much better to have bigger upper and less Ill

01:03:04--> 01:03:12

then to have a lot of information, but there is no outcome. There is no no wisdom decreased so much miss and he is spot right.

01:03:13--> 01:03:26

He is absolutely right. And I can tell you this something I learned in my life. And that's why when I see this hookman whalemen That this is wisdom, maturity, and because you don't rule without that.

01:03:27--> 01:03:31

And that's very, very important for us to learn as a lesson.

01:03:32--> 01:03:38

is wisdom. Something that a person can actually gain or is it something that's just a gift from Allah? subhanaw taala?

01:03:39--> 01:04:07

No, you gain through experience. Yeah, hikma is something that you gain through knowledge and experience and, and some part of it's gifted. Like there is people very gifted, very wise, very wise, they have like the see things like in a very unique perspective, but But the biggest portion of it is something that you learned something you acquired because it's a result of knowledge.

01:04:08--> 01:04:17

So I guess my question is, if a person is in, gifted it, and they don't have a lot of experience because they're young, for example, how would they acquire wisdom?

01:04:18--> 01:04:33

Very good. Well, I'm better I should do it now. When he reached that I should do mature did he reach that age? Allah give him that hook him that power, the judgment and knowledge and wisdom. Okay.

01:04:35--> 01:04:58

People who go through stages and from this verse that is a lessons and it is certainly a little bit moronic. If you had any we go through stages in our life. And sometimes it's not wise to not to live your stage to rush. You have to rush Yani. Some people want to live like their 40s while they are teenagers, or they want to live their teenagers while they are in their 30s

01:05:00--> 01:05:16

Okay, have you ever you are in your 30s? You know, teenager anymore? You're not You're not in your 20s you're not in your 50s? Yeah, you have to live, every stage in your life has a certain, you know, you know, challenges and opportunities. And that makes sense.

01:05:20--> 01:06:01

I want to ask one thing, the shirt, that use of ideas that I had that Yaqoob was cast into his face, and he was able to see again, is there anything about what was on that shirt? Was it just his scent? Yeah, it was just his scent. That's what we know. And so what does that inspire as far as the center of your children, for example, I can think of how children are anchored to the center of their parents. Like I know, I've known, you know, especially with kids how, though, they'll want the center of their mom, for example, on a blanket or something, they'll be very, there'll be very, I think people are very familiar with the center of their parents. But is there anything about the

01:06:01--> 01:06:02

center of children?

01:06:04--> 01:06:06

Are parents familiar with the sense of children?

01:06:08--> 01:06:35

As I get quiet stares, I'll just move on to the next question. No, wait, wait, did you watch the video it got popular a while ago where they had these kids blindfolded, and they would walk up to four different women. And just from their scent, they would and none of them got it wrong. They would always lose the children. And so it's the opposite. But every single time none of them got it wrong. They would they would know which one is there money. Yeah, however, the opposite. They didn't do the opposite. Maybe we can do it here.

01:06:36--> 01:06:39

That would be a great activity, actually. It'd be a great activity.

01:06:40--> 01:06:41

That's a nice activity.

01:06:43--> 01:07:09

Bring your children but make sure you give them tick, tick shout first. We'll see which parents can recognize the center of their kids. That's a nice activity next week. Let's see if you can recognize the center of your children. You know, that's interesting. I have a comment. Okay, go ahead came from the audience. Someone sent it to me. So says I just want to add anonymous word that use of Ali Salam net was never mentioned to be scared or worried

01:07:10--> 01:07:15

that it says that shows so much and he will call on full blast.

01:07:18--> 01:07:20

ever scared in the prison? never scared. Oh, he forgot me.

01:07:22--> 01:07:23

He didn't mention me to the king.

01:07:24--> 01:07:26

That's a good point. Yeah, exactly. You know,

01:07:27--> 01:07:58

one thing also very nervous about about something that you mentioned, and any hope that's something we focus on in storage, use it, use it at least, if we can identify let's think about what are the character traits, characteristics or traits that Yusuf Ali Salam had and yet he was so clear in this story, they should clap and that he cannot use any this story of use of a certain character characteristic traits. Like what audience do

01:08:01--> 01:08:03

Topo TBWA characters treats.

01:08:05--> 01:08:47

patients, patients Saba, very good is also strength, trustworthiness, trustworthiness, forgiveness, forgiveness. Excellent. What else? It forgiveness while he is capable, like laughter in the McDarrah uni, there is a difference I forgive you while I'm weak, but I forgive you all I'm strong in this string when it's strong violence and strong position. Also something he said generosity Karim. Do you know that Yusuf Ali Salaam in jail, he used to break the breath and go and feed the other prisoners because he was treated in a special way because he interpret dreams thought like that. You know, what else? So generosity what else?

01:08:48--> 01:08:49

Trustworthy? Yes.

01:08:51--> 01:09:23

Very, very respectful. Also have I have Shai? Modest chested? You know, you your value, your value is based on your character characteristic trait. Your lot, it's really what is your value is and since we, in this dunya we use numbers a lot. Somebody put it this way. He said, You o'clock your manners is number one.

01:09:25--> 01:09:59

Anything else is the zero that comes after it. That's nice. Okay. So, if you have manners and you have money, it become zero become what 1010 If you are handsome lecture, come on, become 100 if you you know, mashallah come from a family known of poetry and they are the head of their tribes. Val village in Sudan, like Amar, you became 1000 1000 You

01:10:00--> 01:10:04

Now, and you have a big black pickup truck if you

01:10:06--> 01:10:09

became 110 110,000.

01:10:12--> 01:10:12


01:10:14--> 01:10:16

take the lock out.

01:10:19--> 01:10:23

What's your value of all these things? zero zeros.

01:10:27--> 01:10:30

Take your clap out of this equation, your zero.

01:10:33--> 01:10:34

Remember that

01:10:35--> 01:10:38

was a graph to have you guys. It's not just one of

01:10:40--> 01:10:44

the, one of the comments of the scholars, they said that

01:10:45--> 01:11:27

they just casually mentioned reputation. And they said, from the importance of reputation, when the king brought the woman to ask them, they said Ma alumna, we did not know any evil from him. So they said, Look, his reputation came here to assist him and came in his defense. That's one. The other thing is really when you said he was given wisdom and knowledge, see his wisdom, when the king was going to take him out of jail. He didn't say, Yes, let me go out immediately, because individuals Salam said in a hadith, he said no, during to the Egypt, Daya. He said, If I were called, I would have answered the call, I would have left jail but use of understand I'm refused to leave jail. He

01:11:27--> 01:12:07

said, What What's the situation with the woman? What about those women, and then the King when he brought the woman, he asked them and in the way he asked them, he indicated that he believed use of it setup, because only a truthful person would refuse freedom. And say what I don't want to just be set free because I was pardoned but guilty in the minds of people. But I want you to prove to everyone that I was guilty first and then I'll walk out. And this is something that I always wonder about because we have a plea bargain system here in the United States where most people you know who are guilty as because of a plea and you see people refuse to take a plea even though they're looking

01:12:07--> 01:12:23

at such incredible jail time because of their insistence of their innocence and you wonder psychologically like dude just plead and live your life but Subhanallah when people are innocent they just you know that becomes so valuable to them that aspect of reputation

01:12:27--> 01:12:30

I don't want to I'll take your point quickly

01:12:38--> 01:12:39

Yeah, it was in Egypt

01:12:43--> 01:13:07

Yeah, I'm by the way, check him out. I was mentioned also I heard him talk about how the use of was Dahlia in jail and diarrhea in the palace. Yeah. In the end everywhere he was he was giving down that's something also something he's walking diary. Something interesting. Anyway, there's a lot to be said about syllogism. I hope you guys had a good

01:13:08--> 01:13:16

night and inshallah we should good lights on the story of user next Friday. We'll have something else to talk about. And looking forward for it.
