salatu salam O Allah to Malik Milani political killer headline Vina Mohammed in while he also happy married to mama bird cinematic la vaca to tears for the sisters. Welcome to the continuation of the Tafseer of sort of Musa Valley Salaam. We have reached the point where useless was sold, you know, on the slave market in Egypt. And Allah, Allah told us about the person who bought him, and also a bit about his wife as well.
That was, if you like the end of one stage, that stage where he was a boy, you know that the word found him in the in the well said, Follow Boucher
identifying him as a young child. So as a young child that we had to go through. Now the next stage is when he's a different age. Okay, he's now older, much older than he was, and we'll discuss ways that was, but with that new age came a new trial as well. And this is the trial of seduction, trial of temptation. And ology. And I will talk to us now about this particular fitna that took place in his life where he was seduced or who the lady of ours is trying to seduce him, that is the next verse inshallah we'll take today which is verses 2223 and 24. Now, before we recite that portion, remember here, that Allah subhanaw taala ended the previous passage by telling us that this is now
the fact is Allah has established useful Islam on this earth. And in order to serve a purpose what was that purpose? lunar moon mentor will have these in order to teach him the interpretation of dreams, what the second Tafseer was the teaching the interpretation of Revelation and the prophetic ways. So that's now end of that chapter. Okay, next chapter inshallah.
Billahi min ash shaytaan banyuwangi Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim.
bellava should who
is in Sydney in Warden solarventi who are feeble at
sea level LA County in
one call and hate
Kenny Nasri fan who's soooo
in Minaya andina.
Amina Serato, Sarah Maharashtra Villa Mia mousseline, the Vienna Mohammed in the USA,
that is part of sort of use of
it's a very unique passage in the Quran speaks about temptation, it speaks about sexual desire, and the scene is well, it's a little bit someone who's a little bit explicit. And with regarding that, even though I said something, he said, you know, those people have a bit of a disease in their heart, you know, sometimes we find that they like to read this portion of the Quran or to have it recited in order to capture the the he said there is, you know, this fantasizing over a loved one, many times that's not the husband, that's not the way it's someone Hold on, and some people is that have this
any it happens is a practice that was happening at that time even before that time that people like to listen to this passage of the Quran and in order for a very, not so good reason, you know, in order to
tianni almost to entice them, and to think about having temptation for a particular person that they shouldn't be having. And so he said those type of people should read from just about enough. Okay? They shouldn't be reading these kind of passages. So anyhow,
the passage is very unique, okay? It's a very unique personal pronoun before the story is mentioned. As to what happens. This verse is brought, okay, well, I'm Bella should the who, you know,
what am I and when Bella Bella he reached a should, his should. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him two things, what two things to give him he'll come home, which is prophecy. So at this age, useful Islam now becomes a prophet according to most scholars, this hochma will means and Allah that Allah Allah Allah granted him knowledge. And some scholars say This means you have any knowledge of any understanding of religion of the deen. Other set is more general just Yanni gave him an abundance of knowledge you can very very knowledgeable.
Now the thing is, what age was this that you said as of now had reached but even before that, look how the verse began, voila. Now I should have said this lemma indicates that a T which means sequence that this is now another stage from the stages of his life. While I'm okay, this next stage, Allah said, first thing I want you to know is that he reached a particular age. And the way I described his age is bellava. He reached should the who his should. Now there's actually eight opinions as to what age This was emergency Rahim Allah mentions all of those eight opinions. However, what it seems like a lot is that this is now the age where he's reached full strength as a
man. And that full strength as a man is reached, you know, when you're in your late teens. So it's like if you say Cheb, for example, is like the teenager. Now, what is interesting is that see this verse is coming just before the story of temptation. So allegedly, oil is saying that look, before I tell you the temptation that came to him, think about his age. What age was he? Was he really old? That if he saw an attractive woman, they'd be like, controlling me? Or is it so young? Not really sure. I don't really have those hormones inside of me, you know, to be attracted, or is it something they were doing? Was it at the peak?
Well, I'm Bella should the who here one of the tourbillion sharabi Rahim Allah said that this is his boo basically means that when he reached puberty, but not just puberty, and when it kicked in fully, you know when hormones everything is at the peak, full capacity as a man, when that happened, a legend Oh, Allah gave him two things. Number one, prophecy. And number two, knowledge. Now the thing is prophecy was said by using the word hokum. Yeah. If you said the word hokum carries two meanings number one is hikma wisdom. And number two is called law, being able to make good decisions judge, which is quite interesting, because he's just gonna tell us about him having to make a tough
decision in that house with that woman. But before we gave him or put him into that trial, we gave him things to deal with it. The two main things we gave him was this hikma
and we also gave knowledge which one came first, knowledge or wisdom?
For what came here first,
how can I a haircut?
The haircut, of course, because it represents prophecy, prophecy is much more significant than knowledge. But if we say linguistically speaking, it means wisdom, or it can refer to wisdom, then wisdom is being brought to before knowledge. Okay, so why do you think wisdom is being bought before knowledge?
is a knowledge enough? If a larger law gave someone or someone is incredibly knowledgeable, isn't that enough?
It's not enough. So what does wisdom give that knowledge doesn't give.
To use that knowledge very good. Yes. The ability to use the knowledge in its proper place is wisdom. No. So Allah, Allah, Allah gave me the
complete package gave him wisdom and knowledge giving someone might be very knowledgeable. But when he speaks, he doesn't say the right thing
to know. So he needs the wisdom as well as the knowledge and if you have both together at the highest level, then for sure you know you've reached perfection. Okay, so Allah Jemma said he gave him two things, how come? And then what can then you can adjust it mursaleen. And then Allah, Allah said, whatever you can, that is the way that we reward. And why was seen in the good to us we could do is now you see, the first part of the verse spoke specifically about useful Islam. But this second part is not speaking just about him as it is speaking about any person who does good, isn't it? So what kind of message do you think that's giving us? A lot first thing that we are telling now
him, we gifted him, you know, wisdom, knowledge.
And then didn't say because he's a machine, we gave him this. Even though that is what is implied a larger loss, that is the way we give things to what is seen in
GC, automated General, maybe more generic, maybe more open, broader. So why do you think that? The second part is more general? What kind of message do you think is being given here?
Okay, very good. That's my close brother said is kind of saying you don't have to be a prophet of Allah in order for Allah to gift you. Something of knowledge and wisdom. Yeah. Very good. Can you catch?
All can throw, sir.
David, anybody else can give an answer for that.
Very good, very good. It's kind of what the brother said, but goes one step further, which is to encourage us all that look useful is he's just shown some, some excellent see in something. Now, if you're reading this and thinking, Oh, then Allah gave this and that and this is just for us for Islam. Then that's normally right. In fact, I am ready to give these things to anyone who shows their son
meaning excellence in Islam. Now what thing did useless Salaam show excellence he in just before this one thing that is show real excellence in what part of Islam? Teach? Excellent, yes.
Very good. So the brother said teacher excellence in sub two, I mean, thrown into the bottom of well sold into slavery and no moaning, no whining, no winching. He's just having supper. Ah, so he's shown his son in his suburb here. Now building on top of that, my brother, thinking about when this was revealed during the life of the product seller, which was towards the end of the makan era, where life has become really tough.
What kind of message is that sending to the processor and then
to a patient. And what else though?
Okay, kind of
how the best patient yet but what at this stage now is the next part of useless of life. And all of a sudden, we gifted him with this and this. And that's because he showed great son, son, how we have suffered with the trials that he was going through. So what kind of message do you think that's going to send to the processing of that?
Yep, very good. So this is Josie mentioned this, this is sending a message, a processor that looks just around the corner, is going to be his head just round the corner, just like us, Islam was tried. Don't worry, your dessert is coming, just like Hinduism. And then we'll have been awash with dough and then things will start to turn, turn the other way. Okay, and spatola if this was revealed in the 10th year of prophecy, how many years after did they actually make hedra become an Islamic State and start to conquer Arabia?
No, three years. Very good.
Just three years, 10 years have already gone by just a few more years, and things are gonna start to develop and take another stage. Very good.
I'm gonna try a second time. Yeah.
Okay, very good.
Now, the other thing it shows us is that in order to be a very effective leader, which is what users will eventually be, two qualities are key number one is wisdom. And number two is also knowledge. Very good.
Now, Kim Taylor mala basically commented on this last part because then you can educate Martine and he said, this show that Allah will give the light knowledge and wisdom to any marketing. It's like a general message given to anyone that review Excel for LASIK. Allah is ready to grant you things, grant you gifts.
now there's one key lesson which I want to mention it which is that from this verse, what we learn is that the life of a believer should be in stages should be in stages. Now, what does that mean? My mom, she gave me this advice. She hated me said to me, asked him a question. I was thinking about doing any a big project, okay. And I wasn't sure whether I should do or not, because to be honest,
it would mean a lot of change in my life. And I wasn't sure. So I said to him, what do you think should I do or not? And he just said, One fairly small statement, he said, you know, the life of a believer should be in stages, the life of believers should be in stages. And what I understood from what he said, is that don't live in your comfort zone. Just because you become comfortable doing certain things, you become very good at them. It's very easy to say, you know, I'm just going to do these things. Now. I don't really want to move out of my comfort zone to do something else because well, because that's uncomfortable in others difficult. However, on the contrary, the life of
believers should be in stages, and the next stage should be one of greater closeness to Allah, more worship, more knowledge, every good thing should be increased. And so person should think about his life, you know, just like he was gonna go from one stage to another, that is symbolic of the way the life of believers should be from one stage to another. It's not just the fact that he is going on by No, the fact is that you need to assess your relationship with Allah. And you should be thinking about one Ramadan to another Ramadan, how was My life better? How did it change have I reached another stage in my life?
The next verse, Now, the scene cuts to this particular scenario, which is planula very, very interesting the way a lot described it a lot a lot. I said, What are the two Letty who have a beta and he will volatile about the woman whose house it was solicited him. What does that mean?
The most simple translation is that the woman in whose house he was trying to seduce him. But look at the Elmo jolanda said this word was used. What are the two? Okay, all Wada is very interesting, would you say sugar and he said because it has two routes, one is road and the other is rod rod. As for road, the meaning is to seek something by a way of showing kindness or gentleness, there's like she, okay, and she is now his master. And he is her slave. She was trying to to seduce him, and how is she doing that? Or she's trying to be kind and gentle towards him and you know, just basically showing him kindness in order to try and tempt him. However, the other
root word or order, okay has a different condition, rather means to go back and forth, back and forth.
So from raw data, you get a raw raw is very similar to another word, which we know which is your other irata sounds very similar to
morava. Doesn't it? iraida it means to intent. What do you do when you intend?
You think about doing something? What should I for lunch, chicken and cheese? Not sure.
Then irata you decided to that morada is to get somebody else to decide as you decided they have an errata do you have in your other morava is to try and get your order to be like your irata and it also
has a connotation of trying over time. So this word so rich, Allah is telling us that this the the case was that use of Islam was being harassed by this lady for a long time, not just this one occasion. And she was trying hard to make him like
she wanted him. But he didn't want to, because his irata was different to her other when she was trying to get his he rather to be like hers. That's why Allah Allah says, what are the two are Nevsky he, from his own soul? Meaning he has Own your other. She's trying to take that away and making like her and all that. But before Allah said, or in the middle of that statement, Allah said there's one thing you should not which is that you know what else was going on? Who the beta, he was inside her home?
And who is her exactly? And let he who was her? Has she been mentioned already? Where she referred to before this and after this as what
in Varanasi is yes, as his wife, the hair Allah gelada never said what are the two immortalises
and FC Allah Allah Allah said Allah t Why? Well because when you say and she was trying to seduce him
instead of saying the lady of Aziz was trying to seduce him he have this element of distancing yourself from this one here. You know when you say the three people when you're talking to say Oh, he doesn't want the other guys to stay says What do you mean he says he Amara here refer to your money so when you're talking about this a bit rude isn't it? to call me she on my head? So Allah gelada is showing a bad distancing us from her as if to show that she's despicable. No one even mentioned her by name. Okay, now what do we learn from the fact that Allah said she tries to seduce him and he's in her house?
What does this give us? What extra meaningless give us
No, now brother said more chances of falling into that temptation. Not really. Well, who are fi beta? So allegedly was saying that.
He Why is he there? Well, he's inside her home.
Very good. The brother said because she's the one in control. Is her house here. Very good. Anything else?
He's inside her home.
Okay, it's a bit like what the brother says she's in control because it's their house, you know, what's going on? Who's coming? Who's going and all the rest of it? Okay.
You know, when is my house, you know, when you do something silly and dad says, you know, once you living under my roof, you're not gonna be doing those kinds of things. Obviously, you don't know that because Mashallah, you're good.
But some people know about this. When what does that mean that when you're living on a mire, if you're not going to be doing that?
Yeah, he's got a, he's got to follow her rules. If she does something, and it's her house and he's living in a house.
He should really comply with everything. Now, what is he living as? He's living as a guest? He's living as a slave.
Can you see how much the law is telling us how difficult the situation is? First of all, she's been trying for a while, but all of that. And she He's inside her home as a slave and is her home. And on top of that wahala Patil
and she, she locks all the doors. Now, how many dues are there? Well, Allah jealousy didn't say overlocker till Bab. Allah said, what
about the plural? There is many doors, which has many doors.
A mansion a castle is a massive cause big pallets okay.
Instead of saying out of Allah, Allah is saying lot. So is that means locked. What does the law give us that the other two don't? This? Well, the law gives us two extra meanings. Number one, it means that she locked all of the doors
Every single one of them and unlock or lock them properly. You know, sometimes you have a latch and then you have the chain and then maybe a little one at the bottom. So every single one of them, he looked all of them all the dose is no way out. Now when she's done that, very conniving, then powerlet Hey, Turlock,
Turlock hater. Most of its gonna say means
hello means Come here.
Come here now she's giving you an order.
Who is he?
Hursley? What do slaves usually do when there's an order? A very nasty job. So she's given him an order hater. Come here.
luck, meaning Homer saying come here to you. I say to you, hey, look, this expression is quite a uncommonly Arabic expression. Okay, and it carries with it a flirtatious meaning. And it also carries with it a lewd meaning as though you know, very lewd type of speech here that she's using. Hey, della, she's commanding. Okay, come over here.
And that useless thumb is got nowhere to go. She's talking given him a point blank instruction Come here. What does he do? Paula? What does he say? Ma Ma, he says Ma Ma. Lucy translated as I seek refuge in Allah. However, the law is different to saying arugula isn't it?
means I seek refuge in a lot. So what does the law mean? It now shows that this
is what's known as muster meaning. What that means? Is that you asking a lot to give you a place of refuge. You didn't just say all I seek refuge in You here right now. Where am I like, get me out of here. somewhere other than this, some place of refuge with you a lot more than la squadre amazing. And he's a prophet of a law. You think a prophet of Allah be quite confident in this situation? So kale got under control, you know?
No problem. The one thing he says is, get me out of it. So hon Allah, the prophet of Allah in that situation is in Allah get me out of it, please, anywhere. But here. a safe place away from here in the center mathway. Indeed, my master
has made my math work, which is my place of state. Awesome, very good. What are you referring to?
Is he referring to his his master who's made his place very nice to stay and hospitable and being very generous towards him?
Okay, he's not a king. He's just the Minister of Finance. Yeah. So Aziz, is there up here? Or does he mean somebody else has made my place and stay very well?
A legend on both opinions are there that uses some now speaking, he's saying can't do this in who, indeed he who he or be my master has made my place here. So good. You know, how can I do such a thing? In terms of Allah says the more accurate of the two views is the master as he is himself.
He's saying she's in his face. She's off to him. She wants to seduce him when they're a year they will get him to do Xena.
What does he say to her? How can I do this? When my master yeah your husband? He's been so good to me. How can I do that? How can I do that too?
Okay, then if you say that is the meaning of rugby the in the Aziz that what he says next also follows which is in hula volley moon Indeed, he that as easy won't let the oppressive person succeed, meaning he's not gonna let it go. He's not gonna let it go.
However, what seems to be the case is that he's using double meaning. double meaning he's got this woman in front of them. She is a bush Erica, okay. She's following the religion of the people and they almost will find this out later on. So she doesn't have belief in a larger law. Okay, so when he reasons with her, isn't gonna save a lot. They believe
he's going to say something which makes sense to her. What's going to make sense to her while talking about her husband were you doing by your husband?
What's your husband gonna think about this? Your husband, my master? How can I do this my master are so when he says my master, he can mean both things true or not. He can mean my Rob, ultimately is Allah who gave this whole to me through the Aziz. But she's gonna understand to mean what
does to Panama. The reason I say this is because I've actually mentioned something else anyway, but later on, what you find is that when usefulness comes up with these very ingenious plan, to get the brothers to bring the rest of the family back to Egypt, what does he do? Takes Binyamin to one side, he says, Look, I got a plan. We're going to take the king's cup, put it in your sack, okay, then we're going to say that they somebody stole. We're going to take it out, and it's going to be you. We're going to keep you here. And you know, the plan. However, what do the brothers say? When they find to the shock and horror that Binyamin? Click a little windy means been teasing. They say to us
for less Now, the thing is, as is that don't, don't take him take one of us instead. Why? Because he's gone old dad. Okay. And he's basically he's gonna finish him off. Now what is usefulness? Um, say in response? He says, By law, the law and not who the man was, or the who, but
he says that same again. madula? How can I how can we take it in his place someone other than the one upon who we found? The cup?
He never said except the one who stole it. Do you see that? He doesn't say how can we take except the one who stole it? When in reality, that is what they framed him. As? He says, though, except the one we found it on. Because if he said he stole it, that's a bit of a lies. He didn't steal it. So he's using words of double meaning then do you see that? except the one who on who we found it? We did find it on him. Now what do they think? except the one who stole it? Yeah. So it seems like the same thing is here. The reason I'm suggesting this is because any, how could a prophet of Allah gelada say, I'm not going to do a sin, because this person is going to get offended.
Surely a prophet of Allah would only refrain from doing something because Allah would become displeased. Yeah. And of course, you say Salaam is doing it for that reason. But the question is, how do we understand the words? If that is the case?
That we we understand the words that they double meaning. Okay, so when again, when you say in law, you flee from Volume One he's talking about a lot of law will never let the oppressor, you know, succeed. And again, when he says, a law won't let the successor the oppressor succeed, why is he referring to that type of person as a while in
the zanni? And the zania? Why is he referring to them as volume four?
We can answer this question.
What do you say the law won't let the, you know, adulterer succeed?
What is a law? Let the oppressor
You can answer this question.
Martial Law never whispered on the back.
Excellent. Brother said well, because she's married. husband has got rights over time. Of course, one of the main reasons is that she's not unfaithful to him. So if she does this act, she's doing boom to him. And the same can be said about useful Islam. If a person in that position a slave wants to do that at then he would have been doing them to his master. So is his very, very accurate word to use in this place.
Okay, now we're gonna have a new activity, okay. And the activity is as follows. How was this fit enough this temptation compounded and made worse for us about Islam? Just from these verses, and maybe a bit background from the previous part of the story? How is a logical Allah, showing us that this fitna was no ordinary fitna? In fact, it was very difficult it was compounded by many other factors.
We mentioned some of them already.
Which ones we mentioned already?
time. So, before this was the first one that we mentioned.
Even before that
very good that this his age already means he's going to find extra difficult because he's at the peak of his manhood. I should the number one.
The number two, What?
What did you say?
He's inside her house. So she's got control to let's try and get to 10 because I'm sure we can get 10 so he's inside her house. Okay.
Okay, the whole place is shut down. The whole palace is locked. Okay, that's third is
his her slave and so it makes even worse. He's not a free man. Very good.
She's command the game. Yeah. And if she's a slave is she's come on give me a
besides Maxim, but how what? What is showing this that is the maximum and that the fit nice. So? Yep.
Okay, so how can we tell that she might be one of those people that's attractive or sought after other?
Very good. So who is she? She's not any ordinary woman. She's from the rich and famous. Rich and she not just any person.
Or she's a Moloch yoga mat that says this is not Molly. Here she was, if you like on that worldly perspective out of his league. She is from the rich and the celebrities. Oh my god, no, no ordinary woman. Okay, that's five that she is from the political class rich and famous. Meaning that she's got qualities that any man would seek. Okay, that's fine. I need five more.
Okay, so she's talking to him in a flirtatious way.
Okay, we'll give you the 1616 here.
So the other thing that that people learn ages was shallow, and they would only look for it.
Okay, the brothers said there was no one around except for him and her.
Is what you say.
There was a showerhead that will comes later on who witnessed who rather gives witness? Maybe you can give you that one that the brother is saying that they were alone, which is true. At that time when that happened, they were alone. Which makes it worse, right? I mean, if the system is trying to review and uni, okay, and it's a lecture theater. So looking at you, and you're thinking only then
there's other people here, there's not gonna be as bad as just you and her and she's trying a new command system.
Okay, so there was halwa called 173 more.
Okay, well, how does that make it worse for him?
She was trying over a period of time. Okay.
Not really something quite unique. Different.
Is her house. I don't think I mentioned that. Actually. They that's another one. Okay, two more.
We said that.
No details other than the ones mentioned.
Yeah, the brother mentioned already that she was seducing him. You know, she has been nice to her. She was being flirtatious.
wasn't the first time
he just mentioned that.
Yeah, but just to make it easy for him because then it's easier for him not to do because the owner Come on the way he's been with me. I can't do that.
Okay, think about where he is, where is he living right now?
Where does he live? Usually?
Where is he from?
Pakistan, Afghanistan. Um, so he's from Palestine, where his family?
Are they in Egypt was in Palestine. Does anyone even know him in Egypt? He's a foreigner. He didn't say you mentioned this. But he said he's a foreigner in another land. Imagine you going to university. Okay? And where do you choose to go University, you live in London, and you're going to France, France, and I'm in uni. This is tough. And if I was to do anything silly, got murdered on it. No one's it. No one even knows me. is worse isn't it is easier to do something wrong? And that sooner? Because no one knows me before now, I've got no reputation here. The moment and oh, here? Ah, I'm a foreigner. So that's another point. That's eight now.
Do you see? The timing? timing?
timing, what timing?
Yeah, we mentioned that, you know, there was called whether they were all by themselves. So the timing of being all by themselves. No one else there.
So use a slum,
you know, is a man he's got desires, does he have someone to fulfill his desires with
doesn't. So he's not married. He's not married, he doesn't have his woman.
Oh, if you're not married, means any, there is no way out for your desire
for you, and then you're in that situation? That's worse. If someone's mad, they can say you know what, even though they might this might be difficult to go home? To or not? He's not even married. That's worse.
So many things. Pamela, there's one other thing which I doubt you would get, which is that you remember when Ozzy is brought home useful restaurant? And he said to his wife, what do you say two reasons why we should keep him and treat him really well? Number one is that so that he may become, you know, a good slave? So the second reason
take him as a son.
Why did we say take him as a son? Why did they say we might be or take him as a son.
Not that she was barren, something a little bit similar to that, but
very good, that the Aziz was able to fulfill her designs.
Or have a child or whatever it was, if they couldn't have children, that it means that they couldn't obviously do the act of having children. So the fact is that, oh, so this is even worse for her. She has a husband, but the husband concept is for her to know, that makes even worse. So So how to love my brothers and sisters, what we're being taught here is that this was an extra ordinary temptation, not just an ordinary, one extra ordinary level, and then we're being told that a prophet of Allah is going to experience that. Why? To show you and me that if you ever came to a situation like this, or something even close to it, think about who came before us first, and how he dealt with it. And
don't say, my situation is so bad, because it was never as bad as that situation. Here. It's amazing how so patola that this story is, you know, unraveling itself.
Okay, some of the key lessons that we learned from this ayah are as follows number one, that Xena we're the area that we learn from it, it happens most often in Hollywood. In fact, most of the time it happens in this Hollywood what is called work it is translated as seclusion
and any without getting into too much details that this you know, this sin of having illicit relations with an unmarried
person, unrelated person rather, it
has its circumstances. Here, certain things come together, which lead to this final act. One of them for example, is consent here another
The one is the time and place, the desires might be that they might consent, but if people are around, they may not be able to okay? However, when people are alone when a man or woman are alone, then this is
that key situation where this sin can happen. And that is why this situation is to be avoided. That situation 101 of people always ask, what how do you define halwa. But the thing is that the shery are never defined it in the first place, that a larger law and person never defined. This is seclusion defined in this way. So, avoid this means you avoided How comes? Or because
by defining it, you restricted the meaning. And moreover, Holloway is actually about avoiding the spirit here, what is what do you mean, avoid the spirit, you see, we're being told that avoid situations which are halwa. And that might be harmful for you, but not for the next person. Here, for example, one of my teachers said that he was in Sudan, and he got on a train train is packed, and he went to the back carriages, and you're so tired, you wanted to find a seat. And the only seat he found was in one small carriage where there was a lady.
So he entered the carriage. How much is sort of
the end of the carriage, and he sat down? And he said, You know,
this lady, I'm not attracted to at all. And he mentioned that, and he she was anyway, it wasn't attracted to her whatsoever. Because this is not helpful for me. But then he said,
What about for her,
she found me attract. So it might be harder for her. Ah, so by defining it is like this or not this, then the spirit is lost, you know, the spirit is lost. And that is that Don't be in a time of privacy with an unrelated, unrelated woman. Once you are, then that situation can arise. And one of the most dangerous things about that situation is that it could lead to Xena. And so how to LA, this is a huge problem. I'll just give you one example. That's happening in our community at the moment. You know, Rukia is big thing. Now many new people coming to Tokyo. And one of the one of the ills that are coming out with that is that these are copies. Usually brothers, they end up falling to
dinner with the people they're treating, how comes how you sit here, true. power law, even I have first hand experience knowing this happen next door to me. When I was in Egypt, something happens Pamela, I have never imagined that this would happen. It wasn't the hub the lion. It didn't reach that stage of Xena. But what happened was very strange. There was a sister she was possessed. We call the rocky the rocky would come and come and he said that we know this is going to take time. So you would come every night.
And one night he came and he's supposed to come with a brother the brother couldn't come and help us. He's there by himself. Okay, and he's treating the sister What's he doing reading Quran
reading Quran. But then he said we
need to do the muscle transfer. copying it recovering. And this is practice is known in nuclear.
But hey, Giovanna, sister, you can do that.
Is there really something you should be doing? No, I shouldn't be doing that. Get a sister to do that if you have to do that. started doing a job on the system. Where is this happening? We're part of a body on a belly.
When I found out about this phone call my one of my teachers and one teacher approached the person and he said what are you doing? This is not allowed. I can't do this.
And they got into an argument over. It's so clear. Come on, you can't be doing this. But somehow a lot this is happening
here. And it is not just that stage is leading to Scala cases of Xena being brought to the Sharia Council. Okay, we find the Sharia council does holla that these sisters are being taken advantage of by the SoCal Rockies. What is happening. We need to do the treatment when we need to treatment in a hotel.
A hotel room, sisters already so vulnerable, possessed by gin. Ignore thinking straight. hotel room who's there just Araki all alone. What do you know? We fell into Xena
Is this for real is for real? And this is happening on a religious perspective imagine outside of religious contexts, you know. So what we learning here is that useful Islam was forced into this situation where he was alone with her. He was a slave. So we had to be in the situation. However, what did he ask Allah for? In that situation?
He asked Allah,
ma the Lord, take me out of this position, take me out of this collar work with this lady. So from this, we learn the dangers of hover. Anyhow, the next lesson we learn is that cyber is essentially of two types. This mentioned my mom, Sandra, Mama, you see in this situation, useful Islam showed sub. Before this, he also showed sub, when it came to his brothers growing up in a world being sold in slavery, he showed suburb, but this type of suburb was different, isn't it? What was the main difference? How can we, you know, highlight this was the difference? And he said, Well, suburbs have two types, there are three and a theory, it means that you're basically to have no choice except to
have supper is a sound thrown into well, and, you know, you don't really have any choice in that have suffered in that situation. Okay, don't resist, and don't, you know, become agitated, anxious, and so worried and all the rest of it, rather try to exercise patience. The situation, however, is allottee, meaning you have no control, and you've got no way out. This situation is different is the meaning.
You could resist, okay? Or you could just go along with it. Even a choice. Ah, he's got the choice. He could win Billa kill to the pressure and say, You know what?
All he could choose to say no, I'm going to suffer in this situation. How am I going to do this, I'm going to hold back, true or not. So this is another type of patience, which one is more rewarded for by Allah? Allah spoke about this in the beginning as well. But this is essentially more rewarded for by Allah. Why because of the element of choice here, whereas in the previous time, they don't, they don't have the element of choice. Okay, next lesson is not to rely on yourself, rather to be suspicious of yourself. Now this lesson is coming because useful is when he was tempted. Immediately he turns to alliances, law, the law, get me out of it. Okay, seek a place of refuge with You away
from here. And that's expressive of a man who says, You know what, I can't handle the situation by myself. I need you Allah. Allah, I need you to help in situation of not relying on myself. Who did he ask for? immediately asked upon Allah subhanaw taala. Now, brothers, please. And sisters pay attention to that. This is a prophet of a law saying
I don't trust myself. I need you on
in this situation.
What then about us? Do you see that we do this sometimes that we put ourselves in situations where there's temptation, but then a brother to themself? I can handle it is fine. I read my reports today is not a problem I'm doing now. This is a new way of doing our so it's fine for me, you know, in this situation, temptation, but you know, it's cool. It's no problem. Yeah, he uses his law, the law. And you're saying it's okay. Come on. There's something wrong here. Yeah, take guidance from the perfect use of an SLR. Another point lesson is that a person achieves perfection by controlling his desires mentioned by Rashid Riva. He said that you see useful Islam here, is being tested in a
very, very tough way. And it's all about desire, when he's able to control his desires, or when any man rather is able to control his desires. Then he develops and perfects his character. When a person is in control of his desires. That is a state where he reaches perfection of his character. He's disciplined. His designs don't overwhelm him don't control what he does, rather, he controls his designs. The last lesson here is
kahana. If you have to expose be discreet, is very subtle point. Bala mentioned that he Allah, Allah spoke about the sin of immorality, disease through exposing her. But how did Allah expose her
he never mentioned
didn't mention her name. And Letty, who was here, he just mentioned the woman of Aziz as her
trying to admit her name. And that shows us that if a person needs to expose another person, then they should try to minimize how much they expose that person. For example, you and I spoke in university, they and you found out that I don't know one of the brothers is having a relationship with another sister haraam relationship.
You found that out before the eyes of now. Okay, that's not going to say good example very well, it's going to give the wrong messages out. This means that you're not qualified for this position. But it means you need to expose it true or not, you have to expose it. So how do we expose? Do you go into as maximum amount of detail as possible? Or do you try to keep it on the minimum? Hey, are we being taught a lesson? If you have to expose someone do Yanni say the minimum amount of detail only those details that really matter? And try to minimize the exposure of that other person? That is why Allah jalala what are the other reasons reason why La Jolla emitted the name of that lady?
Let me explain this verse. And then what we're going to do is take this analysis of entertainment production will not
even allow we'll discuss, how do we understand the fact that Allah said the use of a salon had hum for the wife of Aziz hum translated to be desired how exactly and he brings seven points, okay. In order to clarify how do we understand this hub? Because here this next verse, verse number 24, Allah subhanaw taala says one must be well behaved
that indeed she had hum for him that is quite evident and clear, what might be her, but he also had hum for her
Lola bburago hanabi has not been that he saw the forehand of his master
okay. So what does it mean Have you not seen the forehand given to him Allah said Have you not seen the berghahn of his load refers to his Eman meaning in the heart of useless ROM there was an incredible amount of Eman now that he man is something that he became very much aware of, at the point where he was having desire for her. Okay at the point of use have a desire for and because of that boron is a man. He left it, he left okay.
Cavalli calenus refound who Sue our fascia that is the way Allah saying that we averted him from sin, Sue, and fascia and shamefulness in the home in Alba del McCloskey, and indeed he was from the right sorry he was from the sincere slaves or from the chosen slaves.
Now pay attention here because Allah Allah is speaking about the temptation of fascia, okay of shameful acts meaning Xena, but Allah Allah Allah says you know what, even Islam had harmful her. Then he remembered his Eman okay and that overcame him. And because of that, we stayed in a way not from fascia, but from Sue and fascia DC would be enough to mention fashion because fashion refers to Zener and that is what is happening here, right? alum inches, so meaning sin, and fascia.
So what does Sue mean that he means a marshmallow said the soup refers to Irish means infatuation. And fascia refers to Xena, Larry, Minister, very nice when you said that, you know how many times that somebody, you know, fantasize over another person, but he never gets to have dinner with that person.
How true is that?
And sometimes the person will area will address dinner with someone and he has no desire for that person whatsoever.
So both are things connected to Xena the infatuation as well as the act is so, so large and Allah said we didn't just save him from the act. We saved him from the age, the infatuation as well as the act is like a full, you know,
a mock came to his aid in the most complete way, saving you from voting. So one factor and then in who even say marshmallow I said, this is like the reason why
Why Allah did you save him? Why? Well because he was from very bad you know our slaves that are most last seen in another para mo listening macula scene refers to chosen people. vocalist scene refers to people that have a class, but both meanings come together because if Allah would choose certain people who choose them because they have chosen him, and whoever chooses Allah is a person with a class. So Allah saying that the reason why we save this one from such a tremendous trial essentially boils down to this one thing here, that he, at that moment, was thinking about me, either having failed me or my his love for me, either one of those things is what was preoccupying his mind it was
overcoming his desire also he didn't have desire.
We'll discuss but here is the explanation that he was in say to Allah, and because of his sincerity towards Allah, Allah saved him from falling into that sin shall after the Salah will carry on to discuss what even Xavier hola mentions Chronicle Omaha biggest novella, stockbroker to work with.
And hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen or salat wa salam Maharashtrian ambia in Vienna Mohammedan Wada and he was in some of our Okay, verse number 24.
Before we get into the analysis, is a few fewer points to mention about this verse. Notice how Allah subhana wa tada spoke about his fearsome Allah said work early Kelly nursery fan who, and that is the way we removed from him, Sue and fascia. And um, I didn't say that is the way we removed Sue, and we removed him from Sue and fascia is such a difference that had a loss of Hanover data set, for example, willingness to defer who on his suit, it would give this kind of, you know, address or portrayal of him that he's the one going towards the evil and we've got to move him away from it. The other way a logical order said it is that evil is coming to him and that we turn the evil away
from him to see this way, honors useful Islam far more than the other way.
The other thing is how comes Allah mentioned two things here. The same green referred to this scenario is that of Xena. And another way a lot of verses in the Quran is fascia. Allah said that we saved him or we turned him away from Sue and fascia. So being something other than Xena, what was the other thing? why we came off? Well, I mentioned it was Harish infatuation that there is a precursor to this act. What is that precursor? Usually it is infatuations person goes crazy over lady or vice versa. And then they pursue and the end is this shampoo did so last father's we saved him from both using the Nevada infatuation towards her like she had towards him. And moreover, he
didn't do the deed either. We turned him away from both those things.
Okay, now there's something which is problematic, okay, in the first thing that you come across, and that is that how did the scholars explain the statement of Allah one aka the Hammett's be juanda
first part is easy. colada might be that she had hum for him. She had a desire for him well that's obvious nothing problematic there for Magic parties were hammarby ha and he had a desire for her home for her. How do we understand this? Well there's two if you like, extremes that people have gone through an explain this this is the way vintage metal approaches this one extreme is to say, No, no, he never had any home.
He never read up the way you read versus Warhammer beha lol
he would have had hung for her. Have you not seen the boron from his load together?
So you never had him? No, no, he never had any hope for
Okay, well of course. The reason they saying that because can portray a profit in that way. To say that you had harmful a woman is to say something bad about him. He can't say that about a prophet of Allah.
Okay, what's the other extreme, the other extreme is far worse.
The other extreme is Hama be hired. No only real desire for her when we lie he began to any one any some reason undress or to engage in intimacy with
this is Wow. How can you say that? That's another extreme
this extreme there is no such thing as he never had hoped
he would have had had he not seen the burden from his road. The other extreme he had harmony acted upon him and he done x, y and Zed. So now I've been taking I have a law analyzes Okay, the first point he brings Panama is that look here. Allah never mentioned the Toba abusiveness. Allah never mentioned that later on after this user some makes Toba does he have this last part Allah say what they both made a run for the door, Aziz is there and his shirt is torn and that shirt you know comes as a piece of evidence for him to saw that he was innocent and of story and of that chapter later on the women even confess it's true. He never did anything.
However, the hump that was there
if you go for that interpretation that he will add you will undressed on engaged in foreplay.
That's a sin. And the thing is in the Koran wherever a sin of a prophet is mentioned, they are Toba is mentioned afterwards true or not either Vanessa.
He straight he made a mistake Ramana vollum. Susana
along mentioned explicitly, and he said, Homer Our Lord, we wronged ourselves and sought forgiveness. Give me another example a prophet who did something wrong and then explicitly his temple was mentioned
which very good so Eunice la Salaam What did he say?
In the control? volume in Calais explicit? I shouldn't have done that. And I'm asking you to forgive me. Another prophet.
Yes, those are his numbers. He said, You know, he says
very good for workers are Mustafa Kabaddi Muslim Islam is like seven. And he hates him so hard. karate is just another. So that was that was a mistake. It wasn't intended to kill him yet. He's still struggling a blow. He made a mistake. What do you say? Allah had done wrong? perfectly. Forgive me. Oh, so he's Toba. As we mentioned, every single time in the Koran, a mistake or a prophet is mentioned. They throw buffaloes even though there is some sort of sod
or waka Samana.
That he, he bowed down to a law and he, I mean, he turned back to Allah in repentance every single time in the Quran. A prophets mistake is mentioned they tell business office.
What about usefulness? His Toba isn't mentioned. So what does that mean? It means he never committed a sin. Aha point number one, that other interpretation is clearly wrong. Because had he done anything of that nature, then his Toba would have been mentioned. This opinion is wrong. Okay. Then he goes into the word analysis hung, loosely translated desire. He said, it has two meanings. Email, Rahim Allah said this, it has two meanings. Number one is hot or hot. And number two is sort of hot, hot. And it's for differences. Hot Rods refers to hum, without any action.
How? So internally, somebody wants to do something, but then he doesn't do it.
As far as far that is somebody wants to and he does it.
So the word can take to similar meanings, but there's a clear difference between the two. And looks. Carla, did Allah mention, did Allah say and they had hung for one another. For the last day she had hung and he had hot separating between the 200
which one Allah separated right? As if to show that she had a home is very different to his home. Yeah. So he said that number one difference of meaning. Okay, number two, if you look at the way Allah spoke about it, he separated between the hum of her and the hum of use of Islam showing that they're different.
And then he said that look at the hub of the woman. I mean, not only did she design, she spoke out her desire, pilot, hater Look, she acted on the desire.
And then on top of that, she lied to Aziz how to do anything he was doing. He was trying on me. On top of that, she tried to imprison him because of that. So her home is very different to the hum of useless now, usually some speak out to the hub
the hub, now he did, in fact, he did the opposite. And so how long I've been saying this, he says, This is like the Hadith of the person I mentioned, say Buhari and Muslim. You know, when he said that, if somebody intends to do a good, and he doesn't do it, what does he get one reward. And if he intends to good, and he does, he gets
10 to 700 fold. And then either humba B, Sita, Hama, he said, the neighbor says how to do a sin, but doesn't do it, then hasna is written for him in that place. So the person mentioned the word hum there, and he said that the hum was in fact, the cause of reward.
Ah, so what we're saying is that, if usable is some never had any hum. He wouldn't have got any reward sohara Wow, that's amazing. It's true, isn't it? If we said he never had hum is kind of like saying, he's a Superman. Even in that situation, no desire whatsoever. The finest woman comes to him, and says, You know what,
I'm going to seduce you. And everything is geared towards him being seduced everything possible. And, you know, for nothing,
no problem for me, or no desire for you whatsoever. Now see, if we were to think that and read it like that, would we have any connection with use of Islam that level would be like, that's useless. I mean, it doesn't feel it. In our situation.
You know, it would be different story.
You see how it's become more humanized. Now. The user Islam did have hum.
And he never acted on it. Ah, so that is where he got reward. And that is how I can appreciate what happened to him because he wasn't in that situation again, Piece of cake. He was a strange thing. This is hot. I'm feeling this, this temptation is getting to me. Well, how am I Bihar? Ah, but then he chose to act. On the contrary. The Another point that he mentioned,
he said that these narrations that speak of usefulness around malaria, the bill addressing this source goes back not to a lot of the messengers that allows them all of these durations that you find in a lot of the books of the seed, they don't go back to the Koran, or the tongue of the messenger, sort of, they go back to where he said, they can be traced back to narrations from the Jews, Jewish scripture. And he said that Jews are known to be the worst liars when it comes to the prophets of Allah. And that is very even up to today. People that, you know, have conversations with rabbis, about past prophets, then the only prophets they have reverence for Muslims, Islam, and
Ibrahim in Islam. But even when they speak about them, they say horrible things, fabricating things, they have no promise ever, in saying very questionable things about them. So those people are the ones that rated this value system, how could you take those vibrations and accept them? This is another point that he makes. Okay.
Then the last couple of points, he says that the reality is that the fear of a law can overtake one's desire. Meaning, he said that useful is
Allah saw what was happening in his heart. He did feel the temptation, but at the same time, he overcame that temptation by thinking about a law and he had failed the law. Or he said that his love for a law overcame and overpowered his the love he had for the lady. He he had some inclination, but that was overpowered by his love of a Lost Planet Allah and Allah saw that and because of that, Allah turned him away from that sin. So many
You know, and it shows us how the law that this could be any one of us, you have situations where there's temptation. Now, feeling that temptation is not a sin.
Here's where Islam fell, the temptation.
And, of course, acting upon it is where the sin comes. But there's something in between.
and that is that fantasizing is another problem. There's a difference between having a desire and entertaining that desire is the person find someone attractive.
They looked once they said, you know, what, I found that person attractive, shouldn't be looking at that person close. And I'm sorry, they control the design, they got to reward another person he looked, she looked at it had a you know, at a glance, attraction.
Who would be like to go with a person on what their personality is like. Wonder if they have the like this wonder the wonder what job they have fantasizing, this is right or wrong. This is right or wrong.
This is wrong. Sometimes this can be a sin.
Because Allah called what so called it a sin.
law called sin. So like, for example, a brother comes in he says, You know what?
I have homosexual tendencies.
Now, many people would say, Okay,
this is a fitna for you. And as long as you don't act on this, then helaas. This is your advice. However uncomfortable. This is despicable. His reality is somebody would say that as long as you don't act on it, it's okay.
However, is that really accurate?
If that brother, for example,
he has that attraction towards the same gender. And he doesn't just have the attraction, he entertains that thought, and he thinks about it often. And he, I don't know, he speaks about it. He writes in his diary.
He's not acting on it
is alright, though. It's not right. Those some foods are evil. They and those type of thoughts are evil, when they become sinful, is when you start to entertain those thoughts. And the process sort of spoke about this and authentic, he said that my oma will be overlooked for my head, the thoughts behind and fusa they passing thoughts that cross their mind, you know, thoughts that come and go,
except when they speak about them or act on them, except when they speak about what they act on them, that is when they become problematic. But look at our the person who spoke about those thoughts. He said, had these nerves had these nerves, it's just a passing thought it comes and goes, I'm driving down the road, I see, for example, the opposite agenda and this so concerned one, end of story, we're gonna follow that thought, I'm not going to entity I'm not going to think about you're not going to x y Zed over close, that's fine. If you go to this extent, where you're thinking and fantasizing and all the rest of it, okay, then that's the problem. So the advice to that brother
isn't just if you don't act on it, or when I'm good it is you need to control your thoughts. Don't be thinking about that. Recognize that those thoughts are evil to you. And you should not be thinking like this, you need to control it. Not just so you don't act on it. But you need to control the very thoughts themselves.
But it's Does that make sense?
Okay, the last thing is that everything that I mentioned, is that the end of the song, Allah said catolica de nos refer to our fascia, in whom in Alberta democracy, this is an amazing point. He said that the reason why Allah sort of turned us away from these sins, and this Zina that was coming to him is because him now this is the reason why, because he was from which type of slaves
the chosen ones or what else? The sincere ones. Now that's a that's a very, you know, specific type of description to mention that because he was from the sincere slaves. That is the reason why we saved him from Xena.
And he said Panama look illogical Allah said in the Quran, about shavon shavon said, I'm going to come to
Poor man and try to divert him. Yeah, I'm gonna wait for him I'm gonna try to whisper to him and misguided love when he tried to miss Scott every single except
he'll come in humble
except those servants of yours that are Mukhlas that have a class. So she
confesses himself that our power over
a lot of your creation except those people that have lost those people who don't have any control over and in fact in sort of
a shape on he declares who he has real control over so he says in a rather large law This is about shaytaan in muscle porn who are the ladies Deena
yet? Oh, well, no no
shutdown has so far control over who? Those yet one No, no, that those who give him we lie given to me when I said we liar, the root of the liar is the hub.
Those who love those things that she loves, are the ones that she has control over. So you yourself
like malaria, we love Xena, you yourself like to do the shameful things. You love it yourself. Chip on has control over this person. You your own self have love for the sin shavon comes and he is able to control you. However, the one that he doesn't have control over is the one who doesn't have love for that sin
is the one who has a loss. Did you get the difference? I'm not gonna say the one he doesn't have control over is the one who don't love the sin is the one who has a loss. And this is telling us what equalise means here, which is that
a person may have desire for things which are wrong. But when the desires come to him what over takes the desire, his love of Allah.
If someone's love of allies, takes over his desire and suppresses it, that person is hot, then then there is nothing save a lot. And a heart that has nothing save allies a heart that is sincere to a lot. That type of heart shape and has no control over whatsoever. You know, and it leads us on to the final point, which is that all of this teaches us that would allow looks for in US my brothers and sisters is moja strive and struggle when Allah sees strive and struggle taking place in our hearts. That is what pleases Him. And that is what He rewards for. And that is why Allah mentioned the hump of use of because once we know that he was having desire, it shows us that he was
struggling. And that struggle that he went through is what pleased Allah and what you know, shows the greatness of usefulness, that even in such a difficult circumstance, he was able to overcome his you know that fitna? There's some verses that show this as well. So brandless number 92. Allegedly, Denton arrow did not have to be mad to have known that you will not attain this, this honor of being known as someone who has built up until you spend from that which you
love. So I'm not saying I know you have love for this. And that is why you're going to get something so great if you were to give it away my cause. Why? It's not because you have it is because of your love for it. See, that could be 100 pounds of someone, it could be a million pounds of somebody else. That person could love 100 pounds more than that person loves a million pounds or not. But the fact is that you love it and then you give it up for Allah. That's a struggle, are the struggle is what Allah looks for. If you're able to struggle for his sake, that is where the reward lies. And I mentioned this in other places, we'll have buckler 177 where the marinara should be.
And I think that's from Sarah Palin son actually
was a hobby
mushroom. We're not sure what the reference for that one is. But last one that I said and he gives his wealth despite his love for it, well, you
an insane version of eight. Allah says about abroad that they feed others food despite the love of it, meaning it's difficult for them.
That's one loves to see the struggle. Not that a person is Superman. He doesn't feel the desire.
And the one, of course, who gives him to his desire and gives him to the temptation, but the one who struggles for his sake, the show that brings us to the end of this. There's today's article on his Island nylon tester for about a week.
