surefeed ambia were mustered in the Vienna Mohammedan while he was married to mama bird Samadhi come after Lai Baraka to theirs but the sisters

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

Welcome back to the continuation of the series would use of this is the 11th lesson now we on verses 33.

00:00:39--> 00:00:42

The story so far is that usefulness

00:00:43--> 00:01:26

has been brought against by one lady, this is his own master immortalises. Now, she tried to seduce him, and he managed to save himself, he managed to save himself. However, that plot, though he managed to save himself from that plot, that same plot comes back once again, even stronger and greater than before How so? Well, because the mitzvah of Medina, the womenfolk of the capital city, in Egypt, at that time, they caught wind of what was going on inside that house. And they started to blame her, they sort of said, what's wrong with you, and you're on your own slave, etc, etc.

00:01:27--> 00:01:35

She very kindly calls them to the house lays in a huge banquet calls useless in the end up getting their hands as we spoke about last time

00:01:36--> 00:02:23

in that state now, they are shocked at the beauty of useless cinema they also now if you like, put in the place by the lady, so she's in control of them now. What happens now is that the ladies themselves start to put pressure on use of Islam, that you know what, she's threaten you to imprison you. She said they use Diana will equal nominal slavery, she says, usually you refuse me now we are going to try on you again. If you do a threat, you're going to put in prison or you're going to be humiliated. So now what happens is that the women that are there, in the presence of that other lady, they start to turn to us for this and I'm gonna start saying

00:02:25--> 00:02:58

she's raining you listen to her. And forget about threatening you. She's a good lady. What do you do? What's wrong with you? Yeah, so now more pressure on him, you know, just not from one source from a new source now, and these other ladies and they're not just any ordinary women, we said that these are the this were a select group of women. Phil Medina, meaning of the political class. So they like you know, the top. If you like the most influential type of people, they're the ones now coming and putting pressure on him.

00:02:59--> 00:03:05

This is now the next verse inshallah, verse number 33. It continues on and it tells us what happens in that situation.

00:03:06--> 00:03:20

There are the Billa humanist shavon euro Raji Bismillah, Euro, new Rashi all these see Genoa hub Bo la

00:03:23--> 00:03:30

una de la YK de

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

la

00:03:36--> 00:03:41

mina Healy in first job

00:03:42--> 00:03:45

boo fell SWAT off on who Qaeda who

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

know who was me

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

banned the

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

deal is Julian had

00:04:08--> 00:04:24

so how useful Islam is put in a very, very difficult situation. Okay. He's got a choice as Ignacio says between two things. Either he accepts, you know, the seduction of these women now.

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

Or he chooses the other option, what's the other option?

00:04:31--> 00:04:36

prison, he's got two choices. There's no other choices. Okay.

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

Now when it comes down to this choice, or these two choices, webinar shows that is that this is like the most constricted you know, moment for us for that sounds very, very difficult situation. Only got these two choices. In that difficult situation. He calls out to Allah subhanaw taala What do you say is next is actually a DA and what he says next, either

00:05:00--> 00:05:29

Marshall says he says this to himself with all the women out there putting so much pressure on him really trying to force him and he says these words for himself color Rob decision. Me Maria de la. He says that a surgeon the prison, which they are threatening me with a have bought a layyah it is more preferable to me than that which they call me to meaning the Xena or the villa.

00:05:30--> 00:06:12

Someone may misunderstand what it means I have Willa It doesn't mean it's more beloved to me. Because that would mean that you know stuff a lot doing that sin is something he loves. But this is more beloved to him. No, that's not what it means. So can you tell us what it means is this it's not saying that this is more beloved rather saying both things are detestable both things I don't like either of them. But the one I like more is what prison I'd rather go to prison and suffer then to fall into this hot arm with this lady that is better for me. Okay that is a choice that I make that is more if you like preferable to me.

00:06:14--> 00:07:10

What does refound Nikita Han la he know a coup manager hidden that he says to Allah that even though for me, this is more preferable to go to prison. The reality is I need you to save me from this sin. It is not in my hand to save my own self. He says in just refat Nick Aidan, unless you turn the plot away from me. I will add two things will happen. First thing us relay in US boo. Okay. The National comes from router sub several means that you start to be inclined towards something you love you know from subway, you get sabi. sabi is what they call an infant, a young child, you know, a young child he sees something he likes he starts asking for, you know, like when you take them, if you got

00:07:10--> 00:07:57

young kids, if you take them for shopping and they see something on the on the shelf, they're like, yeah, and they start throwing a tantrum. Yeah, mom says no, kicks on the floor starts crying, throwing a tantrum, as we lay in a saying that any owl become like a child who won't be able to help myself your loss panela this way is talking to Allah as if he's incapable. Unless you help me, I'll become like this. And on top of that, if I become like that reality is a commoner hidden, I'll end up becoming of the, the Java EE loon, the ignorant ones. Now, how does falling into this sin of Xena or anything, in fact, make someone a ignorant person.

00:07:59--> 00:08:46

But other rahimullah one of the famous seven, he said that the companions of the Prophet said a long while you are in total agreement that anyone who does his sin at that moment of sitting, he is a J, he's ignorant person. Okay, so any Why don't use for Islam. So if I, you know, if you don't save me a lot of doing the same if I do the same, I'll be how to eat or, you know, I'll be a sinner volume would make more more sense. Perhaps. He said, Jay, I'll become a giant. I'll become the I'll become of the J hidden people are ignorant. They behave like this. So how do we understand this? That he's saying that I'll become a jerk? If you don't save me, I'll end up doing this haraam. I'll be able to

00:08:46--> 00:08:46

Jalen,

00:08:48--> 00:08:49

you can answer this question.

00:08:50--> 00:09:13

Sorry, go ahead. That's true. If you do this one thing, one Sr. And if someone does, and usually malaria will lead you to do most things like the brothers of usefulness and I'm in the beginning you know, they made a plan and that plan led to lying and deception and false crying and everything else. But we're talking about being an ignorant person that you're classed as an ignorant person when you sin.

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

That's what he's saying. If I do the sin, I'll be off the johannine

00:09:24--> 00:09:31

Okay, let's close brother said any fee he knows they shouldn't do if he does is choosing to ignore what he knows.

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

Okay.

00:09:42--> 00:10:00

Okay, interesting. The brother said that any sin, as many of the sort of said in equals the blackness in the heart and epidemiological analysis funnel, then you end up being deprived of a blessing that you had, every time you seen the one of the effects is a blessing one of the places that you

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Have is being cut down cut down because of the

00:10:03--> 00:10:16

and any one of the blessings knowledge. So, so if you sin, you lose knowledge and if you lose knowledge, you become jail. Interesting. I haven't come across that but sounds good, Mashallah, there's something else. So something more obvious.

00:10:17--> 00:10:36

And you think about his decision to be made here. Either he makes a bad decision. And he ends up enjoying something, the end, the person ends up enjoying themselves for a while. The consequence of that, is that in the hero, he will lose out for a long time.

00:10:38--> 00:11:14

So that's the decision that that's the other decision that could be made, as opposed to his decision, which is do suffer for a little while and enjoy it for a long time. So any, what do you think about this? Why is he saying I'll be a joyful person? If I was to do this in? No, so very good. So the reality is that any, this is a transaction almost. I enjoy myself for a little while here. And then I lose out big time after an interview. On the flip side, I enjoy myself a little while.

00:11:15--> 00:11:22

So I suffer for a little one. Why is Phil It was 60 years, I could be joyful. 60 years, okay, 60 years compared to an eternity.

00:11:23--> 00:12:01

Okay, it's true. suffering for 60 years for an eternity of happiness. That's the intelligent way to make a decision true or not. But the ignorant way, the foolish way is to squander a lifetime of happiness for a short moment of pleasure. Yeah, that's why they said that a sinner when we sin, May Allah forgive us. And that moment we are joined, because we are making a very bad decision, and only a giant person would make such a stupid decision to any to make such a transaction.

00:12:02--> 00:12:03

Okay.

00:12:04--> 00:12:26

Now, some of the benefits we learned just from this one is, is that panela, an innocent man is going to be thrown into prison, which teaches us sometimes innocent people are founded prison. a miscarriage of justice happens. And it happened at that time. It happens in our times as well. In fact, in America, they say that, you know, what the conviction rate is in America. Anyone know?

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

What's a conviction rate in America, if you were put to trial?

00:12:36--> 00:12:43

They said around 98% and 98% of people are convicted in America. Why? Because they have this

00:12:44--> 00:13:28

guilty plead tool where any, you're going to go to jail for 50 years. That's the prospect. If you say you're guilty to one of the other things, smaller things, then your expenses will be cut down drastically. So most people just go for the plead guilty. So in order to avoid the big sentencing, they go for the smaller which means that plead guilty, so the conviction rate is 97%. And how many innocent people do you think languishing inside of prison in America? Yeah, so here useful Islam is innocent, yet is thrown into prison, meaning being in prison doesn't necessarily mean you're guilty. And this teaches us another lessons power law, which is that this saying there's no smoke without

00:13:30--> 00:13:53

fire. Here this thing is very, very dangerous logic. And if for example, our brother was in big building to prison Guantanamo, and now he is well and released hamdulillah somebody would say Come on, he went to prison. There's no smoke without fire I must have done something wrong. No, this is a dangerous logic.

00:13:54--> 00:14:19

Useful Islam didn't do anything wrong whatsoever. Yet he languished in prison for a very long time that is not the case. And just because any something like this happened doesn't mean that the person is guilty whatsoever The main thing is evidence what is the evidence? What is the evidence suggest that even in the case of useful Islam is commies was the evidence proved his innocence. So we base our judgment on evidence.

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

Okay.

00:14:23--> 00:14:42

Now, I think we're done here. Now something interesting you've been said about this verse. He says, notice Allah says Carla Rob bcgeu our hub boo la Ilya Bhima rune and he lay here the rune and he lay, this verb that they are calling me to is in the masculine form here is the

00:14:44--> 00:14:50

masculine form. However, who is calling him to do this in

00:14:51--> 00:14:51

Who is it?

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

Okay, the lady as well as now we know this one, so women so that

00:15:00--> 00:15:31

Women are calling him to do the same. However, the word we see here is in fact masculine. And the masculine can incorporate and relate to men as well as women. So whatever says here, we see that even though he referred to the k, this k the hidden, they are plot, he said, Allah saved me from what they are calling me to, which means that there is a male figure who is also part of the plot.

00:15:33--> 00:15:43

soprano Haji cola and I've read this anyway, except for everything I said. And he said, This is because the only male figure in this story so far is who

00:15:45--> 00:16:35

Aziz? And the reality is that Aziz because he sold lax with his wife, and he's not bothered about separating them, even though he knows that there is an attraction there. And his wife is crazy for you. So he doesn't bother to split them up. He doesn't have any hurayrah for his wife. And if a man is like that with his wife, he means he's giving her the green light to go and be unfaithful to him. He's actually helping towards creating that situation. Do you see any he was a real man, you'd say call us. You tried it on him? Commission has been shown to me. That's it. No more. You gotta fix up. In fact, he lets it all go. So here's a subtle point. Yeah, they're rude. And he, he's saying all of

00:16:35--> 00:16:49

them. It's like all of them are ganged up on me even the Aziz because of the way he is with his wife. Okay, and he said that he is a do us a youth is a man who likes the euro for his women.

00:16:51--> 00:16:51

Okay.

00:16:52--> 00:16:53

Now

00:16:54--> 00:17:32

Now let's read this analysis. Even Tim, I have a lot of the story so far. So that the seed analysis of avian Tamia Rahim Allah, regarding this first color of the signal, our hub boo la yummy Maroon Annie la white, what he led us to define the Qaeda who knows Bula hinda Welcome manager, he. Number one you've been telling him Allah said he chose the prison and suffering over singing and disobedience. So how are we learning and how you sort of made this decision? What did he see? most ordinary people would see prison, in prison are going to suffer in prison.

00:17:33--> 00:17:45

That's the end of it. They only see the worldly aspect. prison, I'm gonna suffer in prison for how long? I don't know how long the other side. You know, I could just go along with it.

00:17:46--> 00:18:27

You know, malaria will comply with your request. You know, it's a moment of being uncomfortable. Maybe Maybe I'll feel guilty about that afterwards. But that's better than going to prison for a lifetime. And I'll go go do my studies. Go get a job, get married or have kids want to see dad later on. Hello prison. Looking at just from a worldly perspective, do you see this is the way people usually base their decisions here on personal interest on worldly any on worldly interests. Now you look at useless Islam, there is the dunya and then there is the need to take both into consideration even tomorrow from us he chose the prison and suffering over singing and disobedience on one side it

00:18:27--> 00:19:17

is not prison, one side it is escaping. Zina, oh, and the other side, it is not just you know, enjoying myself, malaria people are doing this while it is sinning and disobedience. Okay, that is the perspective, the religious perspective. A second thing he said is, he begged Allah to make firm his heart upon his Deen and to turn it towards obedience, and that if he didn't make his heart firm, then he would end up doing two things, number one, becoming inclined to sin. And number two become one of the the jehlen so a bit of Allah saying that usually snom You know, he didn't rely on himself. He called out to Allah. In his call, he begged Allah subhanho wa Taala to save him from the

00:19:17--> 00:19:59

sin. He asked a lot to make his heart firm, otherwise he would end up becoming the fooling for that trap or becoming of the jehlen number three, he sought a lot of help and may Dr. To him in order to keep himself upright whilst relying on him to save him from the plot is a very important statement. What we're being taught here is that we are supposed to try our best but the outcome relies in whose hands a lot a lot. So even here useful is not running to the door. Telling the women no I'm not going to do is try his level. Best.

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

But that outcome, which is to save yourself from Xena, he recognizes is not in his influence in his hand, it is in the hands of Allah. That's why is that is why he's asking a lot. If you don't, you know, save me because I believe that outcome is in your hand not in mind, then I'm going to end up doing it here, then I'm going to end up doing it. So he's basically saying that I am incapable. And you are the one who has power over everything in your hand does all outcomes lie. If I want an outcome like this, I need to rely on you not on my on my own. So

00:20:41--> 00:21:15

he said he was ready to enjoy prison if needed. He did not capitulate under pressure, and thrips. Whoever enjoys suffering for the sake of Allah in order to avoid disobedience in such an honorable way as used by saddam and his other prophets did, then he will succeed in both the dunya and and that source of suffering will turn into a source of blessing and Felicity. Conversely, whoever seeks pleasure through enjoyable sins, those sins will turn to become sources of grief and ruin for hims panela amazing,

00:21:16--> 00:21:24

even say, when I have a lot, when he says whether you're suffering for the sake of a lie in order to avoid disobedience in such an honorable way,

00:21:25--> 00:22:11

then he'll have a reward in this dunya and, and this is shown clearly through the life use of Islam. In the end, he becomes the state treasurer, you know, working directly under the king, and he has his family back, he's wealthy he has the dunya as well as the hero. However, the point to note here is that even Tamia Allah says that whoever avoids disobedience in an on row honorable way Bill kurama will as he puts to qualifies, he says, because you know, any somebody could avoid doing something wrong. begrudgingly Yeah. begrudgingly. For example, you only a student, you just go is a levels and now it's time to go universities got five choices. Okay. Some of those universities are

00:22:11--> 00:22:12

more like

00:22:15--> 00:22:22

huge favor certain universities or others. Why? Well, because you know, there's more freedom here is further away from mom and dad can do one.

00:22:23--> 00:22:36

But the other side is University close to home, you know, it could be home at a reasonable time. They social, you know, life is not as bad as those universities because it's small, etc. Excel is a better religious choice.

00:22:37--> 00:22:44

He says, Call us all day. No problem. Three years in UT, every year is again, I wonder what it would have been like,

00:22:46--> 00:22:54

oh, man, I'm missing out and they have a boat party. Thomas on Facebook, I look so good. Only if, well, you know, I made my decision.

00:22:55--> 00:23:41

This is begrudgingly though you are doing something good. It is not the same as someone who takes a decision and sees it through with honor the law and made the right choice for you. And hamdulillah I don't regret it for a second. I don't wish that had done something different. I don't wish that whatsoever. And I'm so glad I chose this decision. Even though on a worldly level. It looks worse. I know this is best in your eyes. So usually some chose prison. And everyday in prison is like is not thinking our man. Only if only four took the blue pill? No, it's nothing either, is like no, this is the best thing. And he's Paula he does down inside prison. Unbelievable. Thou inside prison. Yeah,

00:23:41--> 00:23:59

he did that inside prison, he interpreted people's dreams inside prison. So he lived, you know, through that test in a very honorable way. When someone does that, then there is an art paper for him in the Union. There is a reward that Allah gives him in the dunya. And

00:24:01--> 00:24:47

the other amazing thing he said is that upon law, that decision that you made becomes a source of this end that decision, which was initially a source of suffering ends up becoming a source of happiness and Felicity useless around because later on in his life. You know that decision that he made? He learned so much from it by going into prison made him a different type of person. True not anyone you spend years in prison in tough circumstances. You learn things here, you develop yourself. Then he becomes a leader of the people. A man who's gone through tough times, who becomes a leader knows how to take care of every person because he knows how the lowest of the low have to

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

live. And he lived on a lot and what kind of food he must have lived on. What kind of room you must have stayed true. So he's lived any in the best places. The House of Aziz

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

There's no worse place inside prison. And all of that develops and becomes a source of paranoia, you know, amazing goodness.

00:25:10--> 00:25:27

So it's very true. The last thing, every time I heard, I said, had useful Islam complied with the lady, a desire would have been fulfilled. And she would have even perhaps honored him with wealth and position, perhaps even marrying him later on.

00:25:28--> 00:25:37

So he's saying that any let us think on the from the other perspective, let us say what we learned that he did comply. He capitulated under the pressure.

00:25:39--> 00:25:58

Maybe, you know, the reality is that she would have any gifted him, she would have given him wealth, she would have given him position she would have maybe even married him later on. It's true. You know, if he complied with her request, she would have, you know, credited him, he would have got so many other worldly things.

00:25:59--> 00:26:00

However,

00:26:01--> 00:26:19

instead, use for Islam chose humiliation and imprisonment, to leave a desire unfulfilled, and to destroy the prospect of position and wealth, he put forward the face of the heart, look over the face of the naku here given to Mr. Fuller ends by saying that

00:26:20--> 00:26:29

and he chose to basically squander any possible, you know, perspectives of becoming a great person by saying no to that.

00:26:30--> 00:26:50

That is what he did. That is a decision he made in order to save himself. And the reality is that he saw two things either I disobey Allah and obey the creation, who I disobey the creation and I obey Allah and he chose to obey Allah and the disobedience of the creation. Okay.

00:26:52--> 00:27:06

Now some key lessons. Number one, this verse teaches us as Ignacio says, How to have correct with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now the correct answer is referring to is how useful is that

00:27:07--> 00:27:17

correct cried out to Allah, that I am totally unable to avoid anything myself. I don't have the power. I am

00:27:19--> 00:27:22

incapable. Now when you show that to Allah.

00:27:24--> 00:28:15

Allah loves to see that here and this is the meaning of La hawla wala quwata illa Billah that we say the reality is that there is no change in the whole there is no change in circumstances except that it changed through the power and might of Allah. So even if somebody only wants to stay away from a sin, He wants to he's trying to the only way he would stay away from it is by a loss what not you're over here. So this is the this is what a person needs to show a lot. Do you see this a lot I really feel this I notice any showing you out of other as in you know when you show someone kindness you might not feel like you want to be kind to that person but you're just showing it oh the person

00:28:15--> 00:28:24

really feels it and shows it to a lot a lie really feel that I cannot handle this situation unless you help me.

00:28:25--> 00:28:34

This is the other use for Islam had with a loss paranoid Allah and that is why Ignacio says, Allah response, Allah responded.

00:28:36--> 00:29:20

Number two, we need a lot of help in avoiding sin quote, we said that there is it is not possible for a person to avoid a sin except by Allah's help. Yeah, except my Allah. So no one ever avoid the sin, except that Allah helped him avoid it. Number three, if Allah wishes good, he teaches you. This was mentioned by one of the scholars. And what is meant a lot is that you have an Islam is going to be thrown into prison, in prison. He's going to live a life you know, void of worldly luxuries, no comforts in his life. So he's going to have to live a very basic life, but living a life of Zoo hood. Okay, in fact teaches you to become a great person.

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

Let us look at the life of

00:29:25--> 00:29:35

moose allyssa what part of his life did he have to end up living as a Zahid a person with very little worldly competence? Anyone know?

00:29:39--> 00:29:42

Okay, just kind of close. Yep.

00:29:44--> 00:29:48

Very good. Very good. You want this one? This is Kevin screaming.

00:29:51--> 00:29:53

Okay, so musasa

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

coworkers a Hoover party, he struck a man who he thought was abusing another

00:30:00--> 00:30:34

He died when he died for our sins, his police and he has to run away when he runs away. He's got nothing to his name. He has absolutely nothing to his name. And he's and he got no one around to save him either. And he's in the middle of the desert. And then he manages to find some people that help him and he has to work for however many years as a poor person with nothing. Okay, so that's a big part of his life. I think it's 10 years or maybe more than 10 years, he has to live basically nothing. Interestingly enough, most of us grew up in whose house

00:30:36--> 00:30:57

surrounds us. So he tasted luxury, and he tasted the prestigious life, then Allah decided later on you're going to taste a very basic life. And when Allah does that to someone, a believer that Allah is wishing good for that person. Yeah, wishing good for that person. What about the life of the professor?

00:30:58--> 00:31:05

Who Can anyone tell us a particular period in his life where he was forced to live on next to nothing?

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

Very good when they were boycotted in the sixth and the seventh year after prophecy in Makkah, when they had to go to the ship in the in the valley, two years, two and a half years that to live on Spanner leaves. Unbelievable. But the reality is living that life would have benefited them in a in a big way as well. Again, Subhanallah the professor Salaam is raised up by who

00:31:37--> 00:31:39

after his mother passes away, who's in the care of

00:31:41--> 00:31:42

before his uncle,

00:31:44--> 00:31:47

his grandfather, who is his grandfather, Abdullah,

00:31:48--> 00:32:24

the chief of burn Ohashi, the most if you like, prestigious royal person in the whole of Arabia, amazing for us alone is any given a life in the beginning, tasting and seeing luxury and prestigious people and the elite here, and then later on. Most of his followers are the weakest of people. And he has to live in a very basic way as well. They tasted the high life if you like, and learn the benefits from that. And then a larger law decreed for him to live a very basic life as well.

00:32:25--> 00:32:36

Okay, so you see the end, this is a recurrent reoccurring synonymous pinata. Number four, what great decisions are made of and what bad ones are made of two and we've kind of spoken about that already.

00:32:37--> 00:32:43

What Sadie mentioned, I'll just mention it here. He said that the person should weigh up options properly.

00:32:44--> 00:33:32

You can look at it from this perspective, when you look at what usefulness um, did I really suffer in this life for the pleasure of Allah or taste some enjoyment but with allas anger, who you could say, put your body in harm's way if it means saving your soul? That's an interesting perspective. In prison, your body is going to suffer but your soul is not going to suffer. But the flip side if you do the Zener and your body will, will enjoy and your soul will suffer. Okay? That's another perspective. Another perspective is be the oppressed rather than the oppressor, be the oppressed rather than the oppressor? Hey, usually Salaam decided that any I'll become an oppressed person. And

00:33:32--> 00:33:40

I'll take a position as an oppressed person languishing in prison. Okay, as opposed to being an oppressor. How would you be an oppressor?

00:33:41--> 00:33:43

Who kind of mentioned this already? Yeah.

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

Okay, who would it be oppressing?

00:33:48--> 00:33:49

And

00:33:51--> 00:33:56

though this is his he's here he building on another man.

00:33:57--> 00:34:06

Another man so rather be the oppressor than the President's power brothers consistent This is a very, very important lesson that you need to live by.

00:34:08--> 00:34:15

In your family life, for example, husband and wife, you have arguments here you have arguments, sometimes the only good arguments.

00:34:16--> 00:34:32

Now you have a decision. Either, you can force yourself to conclude and win the argument. Okay. We can say no, you know, call us whenever you said is right. And why is it is wrong.

00:34:33--> 00:34:41

You took the position as an oppressed person, rather than taking the position as an oppressor in her eyes. You're the oppressor. If you take the position.

00:34:43--> 00:34:53

What is the best thing in certain situations? I'm not saying every situation in certain situations better to become an oppressed person than the oppressor. Yeah.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

This can be looked at in so many ways. For example, in business, you do business with someone you

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

Both two brothers go into business together, put an equal share. Business is not doing to business is not doing to try the business going bankrupt. Now it's time to sell up. Okay. One brother say to the other you know what? I put in more money than you I should get more money back

00:35:18--> 00:35:20

after purchasing an art I think you did.

00:35:21--> 00:35:22

He's not sure.

00:35:23--> 00:35:37

He could see no, bring the evidence. I don't believe that you did. And he could force himself into position where he's contesting it. Yeah, he could. However, there is a chance that what that brother said is true.

00:35:39--> 00:35:41

Is that right or wrong? It could be true.

00:35:42--> 00:35:44

Unless you take it to court.

00:35:45--> 00:36:26

You're in a position where either you become the oppressor, or the oppressed? What is better? It is far better for you to say you know what, take more money is fine. I'll become depressed. I'll become the best. Why? Because On the flip side, if I say no, and you're right, I deprived your money and I took that money myself on the hero. There's a price to pay. And that price to pray is too heavy. For you to shoulder too heavy. So in, in fact, it's better for me just to be the oppressed us and to save myself from that trouble on our channel. Do you see?

00:36:28--> 00:36:33

This is any you need to think like this, sometimes better to be the oppressed and oppressor?

00:36:34--> 00:36:48

Okay, so the brothers ask the question, can you What's the main in it? What's the goodness that comes out of living, if you like a wealthy life, or prestigious life and then after living a poor life, here,

00:36:50--> 00:36:50

the process

00:36:52--> 00:36:57

is going to become a leader for all of mankind. Mankind comprises of rich people,

00:36:58--> 00:37:07

as well as poor people. Yeah, the leader needs to take care of everyone. In order to take care of everyone, he needs to know how people think.

00:37:09--> 00:37:12

He needs to know what circles they're moving here.

00:37:13--> 00:37:23

And what makes them tick. Because you need to influence them, you need to lead them. So So Pamela, the process sort of grew up in the under the care of the lip

00:37:24--> 00:37:34

balm, most prestigious people around at that time. And he would have learned how the elite of Quraysh behave, interact, and what makes them tick.

00:37:35--> 00:37:44

On the flip side, later on, he has to suffer living with his followers, most of which are very, very weak, downtrodden people, some of them slaves.

00:37:46--> 00:37:53

Now he learns how the very poorest people live, what they go through their plight in life, the plight of an ordinary man.

00:37:55--> 00:38:09

So now he's getting the best if you like, both words, do not. So when he does become the leader of everyone, he knows how everyone you know lives and how not to be a great leader. You need to be able to lead everyone.

00:38:10--> 00:38:11

That makes sense.

00:38:12--> 00:38:51

Okay, this one, next verse, verse number 34 festa Jabba hora boo fissara fan who came in who was me or naughty, his low reply to him and turned away from him their plot and deviousness He is the one who he is the one who knows notice the fire in the beginning first, but oh this is of Turkey in our shoes turkey means of quick succession. A lot heard his no suit and he finished uttering that to our festival a lot of respondents Pamela and Is that

00:38:52--> 00:39:50

okay? Is not just Allah sought to answer his call is the Java on the pattern of his stuff Allah means in this context, which means a lot, responded so quickly and in such an amazing way as well. He is such an amazing manifester Java hora boo, his master responded in such a quick, hasty way to his slave, saving him sort of advocate on attorney him away from the plot. In now who was Samuel Olive, then Allah mentioned two attributes of his two names, that he is the old hearing and the whole knowing. Now why do you think that a lot chose to end this verse that he responded to the call of useless ROM and turned him away from their plot? By saying and remember, Allah is on hearing and

00:39:50--> 00:39:51

all knowing

00:39:53--> 00:39:55

why did knology law say What were

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

his most compassionate towards his slaves or

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

That he is all wise. Why these two is

00:40:06--> 00:40:09

very good accent and did you read this in the book?

00:40:11--> 00:40:28

Very good martial law say martial law brothers is very good brother said that a Samir that he he is he heard the dog use for this time he just made it and a lot I heard and I hear the plots as well they're scheming how they're plotting against you well I highly and I know

00:40:29--> 00:40:40

meaning I know your motive and I know their motives Okay, I know his motive and I know their motives or something else can be said as well. What what are the reasons any other reasons come to your mind? why

00:40:43--> 00:40:52

a person sincerity? Okay, yeah, there are really any he knows what the person really wants in their heart that you mean. Okay, very good. Anything else?

00:40:53--> 00:40:56

as severe and allowing.

00:40:57--> 00:41:34

Dr. Xu said, this is like the ALA, this is the reasoning. Allah saying Why did I respond to him? Well, I responded because I am all hearing. I heard what he said. And I am Eileen. Meaning I know what is best for his teacher. I know what is best for his future as well. That he is going to end up going to prison, everyone who would think you know what, that's bad. That shouldn't be happening to him. That's wrong. Why is he being put in prison? That's injustice, and allies alley, he knows that in fact, this will be the best time Yeah, we'll be the best for him.

00:41:36--> 00:41:37

Okay.

00:41:39--> 00:41:51

Now, what came first the door or the response? Ian is clear that we're being taught here that a larger lalala comes to the aid of the person when he tries to when he asks, don't think that Allah will just come? Because I'm a believer.

00:41:53--> 00:42:11

You know, Allah will come and help me because I'm a believer and I deserve to be helped by Allah. I pray my five prizm Farsi Ramadan. How come? You don't come up? No. Use of Islam was better than any of us in belief. Yet he never thought to himself, I'm a prophet God gonna come and help me. I just need to ask God.

00:42:13--> 00:42:27

Yeah, no, he asked Allah and begged Allah and said, I can't handle the situation myself. Then Allah says festival, then Allah, his master responded to him, teaching us that the outcomes after

00:42:28--> 00:42:44

the response comes after the two are. Okay, one key lesson here is that the greater the struggle, the greater the reward. What we're saying here is that it was already a very difficult for us for Islam to say no to the lady. It was difficult. Yeah. But he did say no.

00:42:46--> 00:43:07

But remember what you said before, how Allah Delilah many times what he does to a believer is that he tests him until the limit of his capability. Remember this question we posed? And we said, Why? Why does the law end continue to test a person to the end of the limit? You know, recently a family member of mine.

00:43:09--> 00:43:15

They were he's married and he's been trying for child, I think for three years, three years or two and a half years.

00:43:16--> 00:43:40

Nothing. There's nothing, a lot of pressures though, you know, in our culture, the mother is on the back of the sun, come on, we have Camaros going on. So lots of pressure, and a lot of difficulty, a lot of anxiety. Then, they go to a point of allergy that they said Let us go for IVF how long IVF

00:43:41--> 00:43:58

and wife was saying, Let us wait, even though they're allowing us to have IVF on the NHS. Let us wait. So they had I think we had like the prescription in their hand and the missing letters way which is still rely on a lot any pure lines.

00:43:59--> 00:44:04

And so Paula, she became pregnant. Amazing. Everyone is so happy

00:44:07--> 00:44:30

two weeks ago, she notices that she's having bleeding. She went to hospital they said no Everything is fine. She went back home more bleeding went back to the hospital. They said miscarriage miscarriage Pamela everyone devastated. Unbelievable. Yeah, and he the person thinks Come on, yes is too much. Who ready two and a half years then becoming pregnant, then losing the baby.

00:44:32--> 00:44:36

This is very similar to the story here usually

00:44:37--> 00:44:59

has done so much to you know, secure himself from the plot of that lady. Now the plot just, you know, takes on steroids, you know, and all of those ladies are coming to tech is another level of test. Why? Who can remember why we said a lot and he tests the person to the end right?

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

To the end of the ability, how come hyrum is the answer? One of the answers this view is

00:45:07--> 00:45:10

very good, Mashallah give you a

00:45:12--> 00:45:57

sum to one of the the front of capacity of a pillar, okay, from the higher objectives of testing slaves is that maximize the reward, you can have this much reward alone wants the best for you. And you're going to get the best if you are tested to the maximum, you know, usually some exactly what is happening there. And the temptation of a woman, okay, and the attraction of the opposite gender, it is one of the severest tests Anyway, you know, as part of the process of sending that famous Hadith about the seven that will be granted shade on human appeal and there'd be no shade. One of them is a man who is approached by a woman, that monster will gentle, a woman that is very young, he

00:45:57--> 00:46:00

has a very notable lineage

00:46:01--> 00:46:07

as well as being extremely beautiful. Then that person says, I feel a lot.

00:46:09--> 00:46:21

Then he qualifies himself for the shade on European, you know, so hey, you say Islam, Allah is the example of the Hadith. You know that the one he was approached by a woman?

00:46:22--> 00:46:49

lineage, beauty, everything money is well, yet he still said I felt lost. When he did that, we see that there was a greatest struggle. With the greatest struggle, there is a greater reward. The last verse now from Madonna who made bad email, yet he is Julian, who had the hint then after they had seen the signs, they thought that they should still imprison him for a time.

00:46:50--> 00:47:20

The scene now cuts away from the ladies and usefully Salaam begging a lot to help him. It moves now to Aziz Aziz sitting there, okay, he's found out what has just happened behind his back again, this time is worse. Now, all these ladies are in on as well. And he's refused all of them. He's made them all look bad. So he's, they're sitting with some of his, you know, colleagues, and they thinking man, how should we deal with this now?

00:47:21--> 00:47:28

How should we deal with this? Either we say useful Islam, you in the right eye, we're gonna protect you.

00:47:29--> 00:47:30

Or

00:47:32--> 00:48:13

the thing is, if they do that, what do you think's going to happen? What's going to happen is that people are going to start talking, okay, the gossip is going to spread, lay people are going to find out well as he is his wife and all those you know, women of the political class have been up to a scandal is going to break out. So they are thinking decision, this is the opposite. bad decision, a good decision versus they think it Okay, stand up for yourself. And everyone finds out that we will be misbehaving. On the other side. We put him in prison, and everyone thinks no smoke without fire. Here, no smoke without fire. He must have done something wrong. And we can he put him in prison

00:48:13--> 00:48:31

unjustly but at least we save our reputation. Here. bad decisions. What do they do? They choose to put him in prison. Look alikes play this summer. Bad mean bad enough. That after they saw not this time,

00:48:32--> 00:48:42

this signs of his innocence. So what are some of the signs the use of it is is totally innocent? What are some of those signs was the biggest of the signs?

00:48:45--> 00:48:55

Yeah. Okay, so that's one that's ayah. Allah said, they have they saw that I thought they despite seeing it chose to imprison him.

00:48:57--> 00:48:58

What else is there then?

00:49:07--> 00:49:12

I sent very good. The ladies already convinced he's already said, Yeah, fair enough. You know,

00:49:14--> 00:49:22

I was trying to seduce him. You Why you guys blaming me for now you know what it looks like? So she's already made a partial confession. That's another sign.

00:49:23--> 00:49:27

What else is another sign which is physical sign?

00:49:30--> 00:49:37

They tried to an immigrant. Yeah. And he refused. Okay, that's true. But there's more of an obvious sign that people can see

00:49:39--> 00:49:47

upon it or not, yeah, that they cut themselves who these women got this mark on the hand over here, what's going on there whatsoever.

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

They saw all of those signs. Despite seeing all of them. They said we're going to imprison him. Had the machine had to hate him. Now the law said it

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

means an undefined term. We're not ever going to say one year, two years, three years, just generally and as long as it takes spam law throw you in prison for as long as it takes for people to forget about what happened. And this is the same tactic used by politicians today.

00:50:19--> 00:50:25

There's a any there's a scandal. People find out. What is the government commission

00:50:27--> 00:50:45

an inquiry here this term before inquiry, commission inquiry will investigate the matter. inquiry is going on for one year, two years. A lot of people forgot about the whole muscle in the first place. Okay, that is a tactic like the this one going to the woman or the fire that happened in Hillsborough

00:50:47--> 00:50:49

was this one, you know, the big fight happened in the football stadium.

00:50:51--> 00:50:52

The stadium collapsed.

00:50:55--> 00:51:22

Hillsborough, Hillsboro county is a scandal. Please cover the up. What did people find out? The government says Don't worry, inquiry inquiry going for harmony is why inquiry here to pacify the masses. So often while they forget about it, they won't be that concerned about it. When we eventually we do come out with it. Same tactics, Pamela had a thriving prison until this scandal basically dies down.

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

Okay.

00:51:27--> 00:51:28

Anything else to mention now

00:51:33--> 00:52:15

the only mention other thing mentioned here is that this again portrays as he's in a very bad light. The fact is that in the beginning, he said a creamy mouthwash. He said take care of yourself. And he was good to him. And they said that he had philosophy, you know, intuition recognizing the qualities of US citizen but now we're finding out so many bad things about him. The fact is, he knows clearly the use of is in the right. Despite knowing that and seeing all the evidences, he still throws you in prison. Okay, and the key highlights the keys thrown away as well. So we learning that's Panama, and the the good and the ugly side of houses. Okay, so that brings us to the end particular

00:52:15--> 00:52:19

hamburger Shinola in Atlanta stockbroker or to willick
