Nobita when in LA mi br

00:04:02--> 00:04:51

okay. Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala COVID mursaleen Nabina Muhammad in vada he was actually a journey. You have to appreciate how excited these two prisoners were to be sitting before us versus them because they've had dreams which may signify their freedom. Okay, they're released from prison. Then they've told him and he's told them that I can full show interpret your dreams, no problem whatsoever. Before the bomb comes. hellos you'll know exactly what it means. Today sitting there patiently very excited to find out the dream interpretation now. These two dreams. First person has a dream that he is a pseudo hombre is pressing grapes to make wine.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

second person has a dream. He's got bread on top of his head and what birds have coming and they

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

picking on the bread

00:05:02--> 00:05:09

so it kind of senses good there's good news and bad news is good news and bad news one guy

00:05:10--> 00:05:20

is gonna make a big you know he's gonna be pressing one What does that mean? Whatever it means it's not a bad thing. The other guy birds picking out of my head sounds bad

00:05:21--> 00:05:39

so what's interesting is usually around which in which dream does he interpret first? Yeah, good one or bad one? Yes, I have a decision. He begins again. All my prison buddies. Okay. Nice friendly warm conversation. Yes, I

00:05:41--> 00:05:47

had to Kuma as for the first Okay, so he's gonna go for the good news is if you want good news or bad news.

00:05:48--> 00:05:57

There's like good news. Okay, now from Kumar, the first of you then phase B or a bell homra. You're going to be

00:05:59--> 00:06:02

quenching the thirst of your master with wine.

00:06:03--> 00:06:12

Now, you see, yes, D okay means to give drink to somebody else. Okay, so what kind of person gives drink to somebody else?

00:06:13--> 00:06:15

What kind of job is that?

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

A waiter but was a full time waiter called

00:06:20--> 00:06:21

Butler.

00:06:22--> 00:06:25

And who the butler gonna be a butler to just an ordinary person.

00:06:30--> 00:06:54

Very good. So someone who's up in the elite, someone who can afford a bottle. I mean, come on. You can afford abundant means you must be one of the very rich people around him. So he's thinking, he's being told you're going to get free. Number one, then you're going to land a really good job. That job is going to be working for someone who's one of the elite. Okay for St. hombre.

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

Obviously, this guy's happy now.

00:06:58--> 00:07:02

Fantastic. Okay, now bad news. Okay.

00:07:04--> 00:07:29

As for the last Have you the second review for your syllable called by euro murase it's not good. The other review will be useless will be crucified. Yeah, and birds will be eating your head over eating your head. So basically, like vultures come in to a caucus and start eating from it. He's being told that

00:07:30--> 00:07:42

you're gonna you're going to get out maybe two as well and you're going to die basically, it's not gonna be good. There's going to be birds coming in eating at your rotten body. So where's the reaction going to be of the second guy?

00:07:43--> 00:08:02

What's the rush gonna be this so he just come disguise This looks like a very noble person. Please tell me the title. We'll have my dream. You know, what's it going to be? I'm so excited. And he says yeah, the thing is, yeah, you're actually gonna die. And there's gonna be birds eating your body. What is it going to be?

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

is going to be

00:08:09--> 00:08:38

exactly that. I don't believe you. Look quite usable. Asana says next will be the matter. already been decreed. It's been decreed. All the means is, is being decreed, hating. I know you're not going to accept it, or you think or maybe making it up. I'm not all the drama is been decreed. Meaning by Allah subhanaw taala. There's no getting there's no way out of this. This is the dream interpretation for sure. So he's like, oh, man stood over TV.

00:08:39--> 00:08:58

And the fee he testified here. This is the dream interpretation already been decreed for those that were seeking that stuff. Dion music in the photo? Yeah. So the dream interpretation has been related to us. In many ways. It's been referred to as the wheel, which means interpretation.

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

And now another word actually before that it was in bad. Give us a bit better really give us the interpretation. There another word here coming now which is if to give us the fatwa. But photo is being used in the sense of dream interpretation. That's another word to use as well. Interesting. Some scholars said that linguist rather said that when the dream interpretation gets harder,

00:09:25--> 00:09:42

different words are being used to show that it's actually a harder dream to interpret. As quite interesting when you get to the next dream of the king. That's even more harder to interpret. And that's why the king says to his people, to me, Pharaoh

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

gave me the fatwa of this dream. Not that that wheel. This wheel is used for dreams, which are fairly easy to interpret. And the thing is, it's very interesting for the first few users alum 11 stars and planets sun and the moon bang down to him. interpretation is quite easy, isn't it?

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

You can kind of work out Okay, so he's got 11 brothers mom and dad

00:10:06--> 00:10:23

Yeah, I see where this is going that's what we this one a little bit more difficult yeah feed the stuff this is the photo you guys will see both of you and then the king also makes it very clear this is a photo that I need for my dream okay it's no ordinary easy dream is very difficult

00:10:25--> 00:10:41

Okay, now hold the lady fetus the unusual Islam just adding that in now she says what this means to say for sure this is the interpretation I'm not making this up. There's no way this could be wrong. Allah has taught me dream interpretation. This is for sure. The Dream

00:10:43--> 00:11:36

Okay, now what happens? Call a little lady wanna know who nergi mean, Huma was corny. And now UCLA Salaam says to the one lady, one unknown nudge to the one that he now somebody made me think the meaning of one is to think or to assume this word one has to be has two opposite meanings. Sometimes is used to mean to think this is going to happen here, like a legit lionesses in sort of a middle aged enable kathira may not one stay well away from having bad assumptions about people that's being used in the sense of thinking assuming not knowing for sure. We can use it in the opposite way to mean no for sure. That's the meaning here. So you said some things to the one that he knows for sure

00:11:36--> 00:11:42

is gonna get out and then go and work for someone very, very senior.

00:11:43--> 00:11:49

What did he say? Oh, I could have meander a bit make Vicar of me to your to your rub.

00:11:50--> 00:12:30

Meaning your boss your master. Now the word Rob obviously we use it regarding Allah Subhana hisab So how is it being used for other than the last panel that had been taken up from Allah said that in the Sharia before you know, it was permissible to refer to your seed your master as Rob in Algeria that is prohibited just like such the out of respect for others was permitted in this area and it was abrogated in Algeria no one can do such that to another person as as part of our culture out of respect him for the parents has held on

00:12:31--> 00:13:13

so again rob it was being used in like this so useless to them he's saying make mention of me to your master and what does it mean by them but it means by that is look I'm languishing in prison your master national he says referring to the king himself okay the king because he's going to go and work for someone senior that person may well be just under the king someone close to the king so when you say is make mention to me to the your master, he means the king himself. He's saying that take my plight, you know, the injustice is done to me and relate the onto the king. Okay, so that justice will be served. However, there's another interpretation. Another interpretation, the other

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

interpretation is codenamed Arabic. Okay, is that sorry, that is the interpretation make mention to me to your master? The next part is for Ansel who shaped bottle decretive B and then shaytaan made him forget that they could have his Rob

00:13:33--> 00:14:21

So following on from the first interpretation, which is go and tell your boss about my plight this second in this sec The second part is shaped bar made that ex prisoner forget to do that thing, which was to make this equal to Islam. Okay, exactly. gave him a task. Go until the king okay about me stuck in prison for no good reason. fensa was shaped by the Colombian shaitaan got the better of him made him forget Celebi that decision with a Sunni realizing and so as a result of him forgetting he languished al Islam in prison for another bibber Sunni bizarre means a number between three and nine. Okay, some scholars said seven years basically the end up staying another seven years in

00:14:21--> 00:14:25

prison because it's forgot what he's supposed to do. Big mistake.

00:14:26--> 00:14:30

Okay. The other interpretation is what for answer

00:14:31--> 00:14:35

a shape on this. Bobby the pronoun in fence goes back to

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

anyone for any usefulness. Shape barn made use of Islam forget about the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala he does something wrong. What does that mean? It means that he shouldn't have said that to that guy. He should have just relied on a lot. Here. It was a momentary lapse

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

Making Vicar of Allah meaning that he, yeah. And he fell short in having to work on in Allah subhanaw taala. And because of that, Allah, Allah, Allah said for levy theft is

00:15:12--> 00:15:54

kind of like punishment, Allah then made him stay in prison for more longer than what he could have had stayed. Do you get the interpretation? That's a second repetition. We'll come back to this now because even say martial law has a very strong, if you like refutation of the second opinion, which is that? Absolutely not. This is a misinterpretation of the verse it is not correct to say that you submitted some made a mistake, and should have had to walk in Allah. And that was the reason why you stayed in prison for longer than he was supposed to. We'll come back to that. Anyway, just hold that in your mind. Have you seen barzini indicati rahimullah? He says something quite amazing. He says

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

that.

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

Look here useless. He thinks I've got a chance to get out to prison.

00:16:01--> 00:16:28

Okay, King finds out. He realized what's going on, I'll get a prison hamdulillah. And that's the end of this horrible situation. But it just so happens that the person who held that key to his freedom, forgot, okay, forgot. And so he stays in prison for another seven years. But the thing is, what happens is actually good, because if he did get out of prison,

00:16:29--> 00:16:30

how does life turn out?

00:16:32--> 00:16:36

If you go out of prison at that stage, how it is live to now would end up meeting his family?

00:16:38--> 00:16:40

Would it become the disease?

00:16:43--> 00:17:06

Maybe not, because the way he becomes as he is is he's still in prison. King has a dream, he finds that the interpretation, King recognizes him king maximizes as he is now in control of the state Treasury, then the family comes, everything else is based on this interpretation of the King's dream. So if he managed to get out of prison at that time,

00:17:07--> 00:17:38

who knows what would have happened? So replica theory, rationalizing This is any Alliance teaching us about a previous lesson will allow hollyburn armory, Allah is in total control of the affair. Allah intended and wanted that to happen to him for a greater purpose. And that's very clear, when you look at the whole story that he ended up staying in prison. Even I could have gotten out. Oh, yeah, but then the king has a dream. Or then he interprets the dream. And then look what happens to him. Yeah. So any everything unless Carnival is in total control.

00:17:40--> 00:18:10

The other point my Maya, she made ocasion Hasan, half of the online he said, Look, here's panela the way Allah, you know, speaks about the extra part that the extra sentence, he serves in prison in a very ambiguous way. He says velebit FEC Genie with ice and he stayed in prison for Belarus in in how much? Exactly? I mean, is it 34567? I mean, it's been definitely three years and nine years, right? It's like, it doesn't really matter.

00:18:12--> 00:18:55

It doesn't really matter. And so Marsha said, you know, this shows us a larger law, really, he intends to test us. And testing in our life shouldn't really be that big a deal in to us. Once we realize that Allah wants to test us. And we are responding to the test in the best possible way. It doesn't really matter how bad the test is. And if the test is serving a purpose, it was three years, five years, nine years and he doesn't really matter. The fact is that Allah is testing me. And I need to respond in the best way possible. And testing is part of life. Yeah. And he up and down. Things were up and down, and he Something happened today is good tomorrow, but the day after maybe

00:18:55--> 00:19:12

even worse hellos. Don't be so overwhelmed by calamities. Look at what our largest book, what is it a fella with a physician with us? It's like, so he ended up staying in prison a lot longer than you're supposed to. Yeah, that's what happened. Yeah.

00:19:13--> 00:19:21

They Nexus what Barlow medical in the outdoors didn't seem Ernie colonna said.

00:19:22--> 00:19:35

Now the king, a new character being introduced into the story the king of Egypt, okay. The king of Egypt. Here are very interesting points. It actually makes you know, I'm not sure Rahim Allah.

00:19:36--> 00:19:57

When they would call him. We would call him a polymath. A polymath is someone who's mastered more than one science, okay, more than one science. Any guy is a mathematician is also a scientist, you know, etc, etc. He's calling Matthew and he's mastered many sciences. So he was the Grand Mufti of Tunisia in his time, passed away. 1393.

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

He was also historian is

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

Well, okay also historian as well. So he makes the point he says, This is Egypt. Okay?

00:20:06--> 00:20:09

What does Allah call the king of Egypt usually in the Quran

00:20:12--> 00:20:39

from Yeah, for around and around is a laptop, it's a title. It's not actual name of the man. It's referring to a specific era where they were kings of Egypt, and they were known as the thrones basically. So one of the rounds is the guy who is part of the story of use of Muslim Mossad Islam. Okay. But he doesn't refer to him as if Iran first he was.

00:20:41--> 00:21:30

King. It says this showing us any a miracle in the Quran, for it is teaching us the era in which this story actually took place by referencing the king as being not around but actually being king. And he goes further, he says that this era, here is strong, the Moodle crypt, okay, the know how to translate that, to be honest, but the era you said is between 1525 and 1900 before Christ, okay. And that's very interesting, because they said Ibrahim alayhis salam came around 2000 years before he said Islam. Yeah, and we know that Ibrahim, and then is how yaku would use so it's very, very close. They saying this is Jani like a miracle of the Quran, scientific miracle rather, or historical

00:21:30--> 00:21:40

miracle that not referring to the king of Egypt as your own were referring to him as a Malik and Malik, that was era came before the era of difference.

00:21:41--> 00:21:44

Anyhow, the king now has a dream.

00:21:45--> 00:21:48

And actually, let me read to you what Ignacio said he said,

00:21:50--> 00:21:55

For who and who bill Maliki phylloquinone Duna terabit beef Iranian

00:21:56--> 00:22:13

Baron Maliki Misra fiza many Mossad is the lack of interferon for who I mean the quiet they are judging me he said that expressing the king as being Akin in the in the Quran here as opposed to him being fit our own.

00:22:16--> 00:22:28

When fit our own was the title of Kings of a particular era points to a very subtle scientific miracle in the Quran. Okay, that's that's what he said.

00:22:29--> 00:22:53

Now, what does he say this king says in me indeed, at all, I have seen seven cows Baccarat. Let's see man see man means facts. Strong, big, big fat cows seventh yaku Luna Sabo, Niger, and I've seen them being devoured by seven, eight

00:22:55--> 00:22:56

refers to

00:22:57--> 00:23:29

any a cow that is macerated very skinny, feeble looking cow. So just imagine any use of the energy. fat cows being gobbled up by skinny cows. That's strange, isn't it? I mean, the eating the cows is one thing already strange, but the ones who are eating is not the big ones. Eating the smaller ones, the smaller ones eating the big ones. That's gonna make it confusing. What's that all about? That's what you saw. Was there there are some bullets.

00:23:31--> 00:23:55

And then I saw seven green spikes. Some Bula. Some bullet is a plural is the you know the envelope in which you find the grain which we'll call it a spike, long thing kind of shrouds over and you have the spot and you have the corn or the grain, whatever inside. I think it's seven of those green meaning green, vibrant, ripe, fresh, seven of those.

00:23:56--> 00:24:09

Were Ohara. Yeah, be sad. And then seven that are withering away. The seven fresh grains here, spikes, and seven over here that are withered away.

00:24:11--> 00:24:13

Now, anyone?

00:24:15--> 00:24:38

Could anyone any could have a wild guess of the interpretation of this dream thing? You have to be some serious person to be able to interpret that dream. really confusing. I mean, the first one, I could get that one. The second one pressing wine. Yeah, maybe you could have got that one. This one. Now don't get in this one is the one is serious. Yeah, this one really confusing. That's why he says get a ul

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

a lamella is referring to his senior people. So now I should have said that he calls his most senior or ama scholars from around Egypt. And he has an audience with them, tells him this is my dream. And the thing is, Ignacio says that the king realizes that this dream is not just about himself. It's about his whole nation.

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

So he's worried he's worried. And he knows it's not just about him but the whole people of Egypt. And so he called all of them he says, Listen, this is the dream now to the pharaoh Yeah. Now give me the fatwa of this body of this dream in quantum level yet

00:25:19--> 00:25:31

if you really do interpret dreams, you see people that are close to the king they're like you know the suck up to the king right? Whoever you say king who do anything

00:25:33--> 00:25:34

in Pakistan

00:25:35--> 00:25:50

remember there was this big culture clash anyone want to focus on and things they would say and do Really? Really get under my skin one of the things they would do is you ask anyone for anything that he they say

00:25:52--> 00:25:56

they will happen or I can do it No problem. It's fine I'll do it with the mounting nope

00:25:58--> 00:25:59

everything and he

00:26:01--> 00:26:16

didn't do it. So I think to myself Why did they say that for what they say they can do when they can't everyone wants to be resolved basically everyone wants to give it lodge that Yeah, we can do whatever we want to do is fine. No problem. Nothing is much cooler. So we must have been

00:26:18--> 00:26:34

we stopped on the way to stand by the stop data service station. And I went there with my as my uncle my dad who sat down guy bought the menu menu said cappuccino coffee tea. As a G really cappuccino. We'll call that the

00:26:35--> 00:26:37

fish for sure.

00:26:38--> 00:26:45

One cappuccino one coffee. No problem. Comes back after five minutes. Two cups

00:26:47--> 00:26:48

look exactly the same.

00:26:50--> 00:26:54

taste exactly the same. One of them's cappuccino apparently

00:26:58--> 00:27:06

he's really ticked me off. But this is the same thing. Any people under the king King saying can you please yeah.

00:27:07--> 00:27:30

No problem. Tell us no problem. The use of kingdoms that river is no problems he says to them seriously, in contumely, Roja? taborn if you really can intervene, now Don't mess me around. Okay. So he's giving them proper order is already telling them that I know you waffle Sometimes, though, have with me on this one. Okay. Seriously, interpret the dream.

00:27:31--> 00:27:32

Okay.

00:27:33--> 00:28:01

Now, what do they say follow a more to learn. They all say the same thing. of was a boss, okay, comes is a is a pool of bills, Bill refers to a bunch of trees, twigs, and leaves just mixed up bunch of any mixed up things here. Above many of those bundles of mixed up things.

00:28:03--> 00:28:17

Plural, is also a type of dream. It's a type of dream that you see, just because you've been thinking about that thing in the daytime, you know, something you think about something a lot in the day, when you see a nice car.

00:28:18--> 00:28:21

Car, do you see the wheels in that car, in the nighttime I'm driving.

00:28:23--> 00:28:24

They that's

00:28:25--> 00:28:26

that's just a

00:28:27--> 00:28:35

it's not a real dream. Basically, it's just your mind playing tricks on you because of what you've seen or thinking about in the daytime. So they say,

00:28:36--> 00:28:40

this way, dreams. And he

00:28:41--> 00:29:10

This is a mouthwash now. And the only other thing is what they refer to as a dream alarm, which means they think they're not even sure is one dream. The other thing is, is a number of dreams is telling us they haven't got a clue whatsoever. And these are the most knowledgeable people in Egypt at the time in interpreting them go through all of them. One man will actually be the mean. And we don't know the interpretation of

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

any of these things. We don't know the interpretation of the meaning. It doesn't have an interpretation. That's what they're trying to say, King. Don't worry yourself. It doesn't even have a meaning. It's a pointless dream. Okay. We don't know that we'll have these kind of things because there is no interpretation. That's what they're trying to say in a very nice way.

00:29:30--> 00:29:49

RG Subhana Allah, the only person in Egypt who can interpret that dream, use of an ISA, amazing, isn't it? Anyhow the power of a large in the world, how he has control of every single thing that no one in Egypt can interpret this stream only him

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

now quite amazing.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

So now, let us go to the just go to this master very, very

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

Interesting massala ontological. The question is did the use of this

00:30:07--> 00:30:57

show a lack of the word cool when he said the word or the cornea and the rhombic make mention of me to your master, according to some scholars, he did. Okay he did. However even take on a holiday that is okay, so we read this together and Siobhan tried to explain the Basilica and Allah says well Connie lay the one who knows you mean home and cornea and the bigger the answer who she born with the column B fella beatifully Sydney bison in he said to the one of them he knew was saved. please mention me when you are with your load. bench a barn made him forget to remind his load. And so he stayed in prison for several years. First number 42. It is said that she upon calls use of La ceram

00:30:57--> 00:31:41

to forget that they could have his Rob when he said please mention me when you are with your Lord. But it is also said that rather the case is that shade barn calls a prisoner to forget to relate the message on to his boss and this is the correct meaning this is due to the following reasons. Number one, it brings the two statements together in harmony comfortably. Number two, the pronoun goes back to the nearest person unless there is evidence to the contrary for answer who so it makes the case First of all, these are the two opinions okay? One side is saying that no shaytaan made didn't make use that didn't make the prisoner forget. It's actually talking about usefulness. Okay, made use of

00:31:41--> 00:32:32

this dumb forget a lot in that moment. And that showed a lack of the vocal Okay, that's the other opinion and he said this is not the correct opinion the other opinion is the correct opinion. He brings two proofs. First of all, they are both linguistic proofs. Look at the ayah Quran and Arabic Okay, fencer who shade bond with the crowd of B? He says that if you say for answer who this ha known as the pronoun, the mute, it should go back to any the closest thing mentioned. So what is mentioned first, euphemism is all any lady one unknown nudge, usually some says about this person, this person, make mention of me to your fancy, fancy should go back to

00:32:33--> 00:32:36

the one at the beginning of the one who came after

00:32:37--> 00:33:03

the closest person unless there is evidence to the contrary meaning linguistically. This is a known principle non maximun in law. Okay, so from that perspective, we should go back to the ex prisoner. And he said if it does, and we really love that the actual expression, this side and that side, both sides make sense because it's like saying, Okay, I'm gonna enter a big make mention of me to your Lord fencer who shavon, but you forgot?

00:33:04--> 00:33:08

who forgot? What makes more sense to say, who forgot him?

00:33:09--> 00:33:16

A prisoner, isn't it because that's what we're talking about. So he's saying it makes sense. It brings the both expressions into harmony. Yeah, that's what he's saying here.

00:33:18--> 00:33:18

Let's continue.

00:33:19--> 00:33:48

Therefore, usable, S and M Do not forget to make Vicar of his Rob, but rather, he was always in the remembrance of Allah. He has just finished of giving dour to the two prisoners about becoming Muslim and submitting themselves to Allah. He delayed telling them the interpretation in order to remind them of Allah first. He states in the very beginning of that conversation, very cool man, me man, no menu I'll be making mention from the outset about his love.

00:33:49--> 00:34:23

Okay, listen, look here. We just had a whole passage about us, I'm giving some top quality power to these two machetes. What is our remember Allah, submit yourself to Allah leave the ship behind, and all of a sudden fencer who shaytaan himself forgets about Allah, it doesn't make sense. He's just given some fantastic power to these people, about becoming Muslim, about Allah, even the dream interpretation, the way he begins, is not by saying that I know the dream interpretation. He says that.

00:34:24--> 00:34:36

First of all, you asked me a question on law taught me the answer to this question. So Allah mentioned in the beginning, he remember the line, the very beginning, and then he gives him down. So all of a sudden, after all that, you're saying that he just forgot about a lot.

00:34:38--> 00:34:59

Does it make sense? Yeah. Now, he states in the very beginning of that conversation, very cool, man. mimma. I'm learning and I'm be making mention from the outset about his job. After seeing all of this, how could he then be duped by Shetland into forgetting his job? The more probable explanation is that shirvan cause the ex prisoner to forget

00:35:01--> 00:35:29

Those that go for the interview, then say that it would have been better for us not to have said, both cornea and Arabic but instead place his trust in Allah having to work. Due to this momentary lapse in remembering his Lord, he ended up staying in prison for a few more years. You can see why the other opinion is as it is because I levy surface decision with arsenio is kind of confusing, isn't it?

00:35:31--> 00:35:33

But why did he stay in prison for longer?

00:35:34--> 00:35:36

And he sounds like a punishment right?

00:35:38--> 00:36:24

Does it kind of can be interpreted like that? It was interpreted that he's done something wrong fella visa, and so he ends up languishing in prison for more years What did you wrong? Or could neander be? You shouldn't have said that and that they said the gates the worker to say that a statement like that. Now to appreciate this, we have to understand what what could means in the first place? Okay. I will start with the definition given by acknowledging heavily human law. A very, very good definition which, you know, are they mean, Rahim? Allah also chose to be I think any is that his preferred definition of token as well? acknowledge him. Okay. What does he say? He said,

00:36:24--> 00:36:45

The definition of taco. Taco linguistically. By the way, this means reliance on something other than your self reliance on something other than yourself. There's another linguistic definition which is adds to think that you are incapable of doing something rather something else is capable. And that's maybe a better linguistic definition.

00:36:46--> 00:37:12

The Islamic definition or the What does the concept mean? The religiously narrative says, A true reliance of the heart in Allah in seeking a benefit or warding off a harm regarding all worldly affairs, and the hereafter. So he's saying that number one is to do with the heart. Okay? It's not to do with the tongue. Not do the limbs is to do with the heart, the heart fields,

00:37:13--> 00:37:26

trust and reliance on Allah. For what? What? Because you want something in your life, you want something? You relying on Allah to give you that thing?

00:37:28--> 00:37:41

Or you're scared of something I don't want to be I don't want this I don't want to accomplish. I don't want to lose much out. I don't want to fall ill I'm relying on a law that he will prevent me from this harm.

00:37:42--> 00:37:54

Do you see whether that's regarding the dunya? We matters? The examples we've given all the architects I wish any for children in in paradise? And it would you mean you wish I'm relying on Allah, they will give it to me?

00:37:56--> 00:37:58

They so this is about the hereafter?

00:37:59--> 00:38:03

Are we clear the definition? Yeah, clear on the definition.

00:38:04--> 00:38:18

I doubt that you are clear on the definition. Yeah. But anyhow, we carry on. So based on this definition, that you now we look at the statement that what useful is that, um, did was to negate to occur

00:38:19--> 00:38:28

because what they're saying here is that he placed his reliance in the king for a what,

00:38:29--> 00:38:31

according to the definition for what

00:38:33--> 00:38:53

in order to seek benefits here, which is what you said justice, so he wants justice. Haha. Are they saying by saying make mention of me to your master? It was placing his trust in getting justice in the king and not law. Makes sense so far. Okay. So that's the only way they coming from when they said that.

00:38:55--> 00:39:38

No, no. Now, let's carry on from now. In response to this, it is said that there is no such indication that use of ns n m showed a lack of tawakkol. In this incident Rather, he has just said in in hoekman illa de la his statement, or the cooling envelope is much lighter jacobellis alarms that comes later on when he says what color Yeah, baniya the Hulu meme. Meanwhile, he knew what the Hulu mean, Eduardo Mota Federico, and no one says that this statement shows a lack of talk cool. So two points here. And he both amazing what he says look, are usually some just said in in hochma illa Illa. Allah commands and decides everything.

00:39:39--> 00:39:43

And then all of a sudden he's going to forget and say now the king decides this matter.

00:39:44--> 00:40:00

Doesn't make sense. Then he says, If you said this negates the worker, then what about what his father jacoba Acela will say later on what is his father say to his sons, he says, Son, you're going to go to Egypt now search your brother Binyamin and use

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

Islam well i'll tell you what when you go

00:40:03--> 00:40:45

enter in from many many different doors don't go in from one gate Egypt has got many gates you can enter from if you all go in there together there are a number of things may happen number one they're going to people are going to see you. And this is a time where there's a recession. So it might be banded around you might get robbed all of you together all your luggage all your good any you'll be Lara all your merchandise on you, you might get robbed or my kit the evil I hear all of you 11 of you sons brothers Yanni and you all maybe the old handsome as well like their brother useless. You might get the evil eye. So going from different tools.

00:40:47--> 00:40:53

So even say martial law says if you're going to say this is negating Tocqueville, then surely that's negating thought could as well no,

00:40:55--> 00:40:55

no,

00:40:56--> 00:41:35

that's a fair point. But no one said that. No one said that. Moreover, Allah has already taken testimony the fact that use of s&m is from a local law scene, and a real lockless cannot be considered as such, if he places historical in other than online, as this entails the level of ship as we use with Islam, he was free from ship from all angles, in terms of his anabella Allah as well as historical in Allah. So here he said look, another point now, a larger lot already said before this inhuman everybody you know mocassin li ne

00:41:37--> 00:42:27

Subhana Allah praise us with salami the most amazing way by saying he is one of my slaves from those that are chosen meaning those that are sincere, truly sincere to a lot not half say half notes and they are purely sincere for LASIK as like a, you know, a tie to Allah has given you this is useless now. Now, if you said that in even this moment, he plays historically and other than Allah, then that negates him being a Mukhlas because he was a worthless he's always thinking about a lot doing things for Allah sake and Allah sake alone. And if once you say that he places the worker in the king for even a moment, what you're saying is that he did a type of ship because the only one who

00:42:27--> 00:42:30

has the right of our deepest feelings of trust is who

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

who's

00:42:34--> 00:42:45

here only a lot. So if you momentarily placed in someone other than the law you did any a form of ship. Now, is that possible for someone who's been graded as a modest by Allah?

00:42:47--> 00:43:00

Kami possible is a miraculous means is That's it? That's who he is. This is who he is. Yeah. And then to say that he needed something to negate our call that contradicts this because it means for a moment, he wasn't a miraculous, in fact, he does something quite bad.

00:43:02--> 00:43:03

Okay, let's carry on.

00:43:04--> 00:43:47

He chose to place his trust in a lot during the temptation trial, saying internally to himself, what he does to the fan Nikita, who else would like him? How could he then place his trust in other than Allah when speaking aloud to people around him? This is a very subtle point. You know, when the the Wi Fi is he stretches his use him and then she got her friends involved as well. They put pressure on him has already tried to force him to do Xena with them in that moment, usually Salaam and he cried out to Allah subhanaw taala. He said, What if I Nikkei 200 owner of Boolean, if you don't turn me away from them? Also, I'll end up just being inclined towards them. And I can't trust myself. I

00:43:47--> 00:43:56

can't trust myself. So if you know, when you talk to yourself, okay, you're a bit more liberal in the way you talk than the way you speak when in front of people, right?

00:43:58--> 00:44:02

People have dodgy thoughts, right? But then I'll share those dirty thoughts with other people, right?

00:44:03--> 00:44:26

So the opposite is usually true. You have dodgy thoughts, but you control yourself in front of other people. You kind of and you can't say that out loud. This is wrong. So any bill x here, the use of it, as Sam said internally to himself, Allah can't even trust myself. I need to trust you.

00:44:27--> 00:44:49

And now you're saying he trusted someone other than himself when he can't even trust his own self. What do you do that? And the other thing is, what do you say something like this when he thinks like this? This is very subtle point. And it usually is the other way around. If you think certain things you say them. Yeah. But if you any you don't say things that you don't think

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

that makes sense. So it's very subtle points upon the way he's saying, Look, he said back then was in us in trouble. He said, trust myself. This is how I feel about myself.

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

Later on is saying limitless the king.

00:45:03--> 00:45:04

Now,

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

that is far look at the analysis as he,

00:45:08--> 00:45:53

as he and this fall away He also said that if you look at the Jihad of even Tamia, Rahim, Allah, what does mean matter, you have the means people criticize even tell me a great deal. They say that he went against EMR, and many of his opinions. And they say that, yeah, and he looked at his opinions, he, he goes against so many of the scholars in what he says, and he's very harsh in his criticism. But he said, if you analyze all of his thoughts, you had all of his views those views, and analyze them, you find that one of the factors that made even taymiyah say this is the correct opinion, is taleem sherea, to magnify the shery of Allah and to magnify the prophets of Allah. And

00:45:53--> 00:46:02

what is making him decide this view is better than this one was the principle in my mind is that the prophets of Allah need to be spoken about in the best possible way.

00:46:04--> 00:46:14

That's the guiding light. And everything else is falling behind that, in this view, other views you find there any, if you analyze the third, you have to determine this what you find this is the same thing here.

00:46:15--> 00:46:27

You could have this or this, but he's a prophet of Allah, should you really go for this other opinion when it doesn't seem to be likely? And that is why he's aggressive. So that is why very critical as well.

00:46:29--> 00:47:11

Later on usefulness, and I would actually ask the king, a john Niala has an album asking support in order to bring about a religious benefit to others, not necessarily detract from a person's token, as neither is seeking the leadership position prohibited on him. How then can we say that his request to the prisoner of the company and Arabic negate circle, all that useful Islam did was to ask this person to inform the king of his plight, in order for justice to be served useful, Islam was the toughest of all people. So Haven, Allah says, Okay, again, let's look at what else has been said, later on useless stuff actually gets free from prison. King calls him and says, wherever you

00:47:11--> 00:47:15

want issues, what do you say to each other?

00:47:16--> 00:47:22

Make me the state treasurer. I want that job there. The job does is that's why we're here.

00:47:23--> 00:47:26

That's number two in Egypt, just under the king.

00:47:27--> 00:47:29

So he asks him for something.

00:47:30--> 00:47:33

He asks him for something. anyone say that he thought.

00:47:36--> 00:47:40

And he actually asked him for something for himself.

00:47:41--> 00:48:06

Here, in this case, he just saying old corny and Arabic is asking that justice be served. Do you see a difference? on the on the one side, he's saying, Can I have this please? The other side is saying, Can you hear my case? just won the case to be heard. Just want justice to be said? Any? If this is a negating the worker, how can this be negated the worker? Yeah.

00:48:08--> 00:48:34

So he explains to me, how do we understand this, he says that all that useful Islam did was to ask this person to inform the king of his plight, in order for justice to be served us with Islam was the toughest of all people, meaning his character, you know, wouldn't even allow him to place his trust in other than Allah is a very, very strong person. Interesting thing in the middle is a discussion about leadership, because he's asking for a position.

00:48:35--> 00:49:05

And what we know is that you're not supposed to be chasing after positions in dunya. Yeah, this is something which is more blameworthy in our area. So how do we understand this, even think about how to explain a lot more later on? You mentioned a point here, which is that he's seeking the position, not for the position. He's seeking it, because he wants to bring higher to the people of Egypt, and to give that out to them as well. And as a very, very strong point, because usually Salaam interprets the dream, what's the dream about?

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

What is the dream about the King's dream? It's about people of Egypt, you're going to be suffering big time. In seven years time is not going to be good recession is going to hit in the interpretation of the reviews for Islam is taught how to deal with it precession. He's taught how to devise a strategy to lift them out of the recession. So is he the most qualified person in the whole of Egypt? Yes, he is. So when he says make me the state treasurer, he is saying that based on evidence, number two based on a righteous intention, and number three, not chasing after the position, and the badge of honor these are how they lower the value as these everybody can you see,

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

I'm a Z sub now. Okay, come on. Don't call me the Z's now. Okay. Now he's not he's not doing it for that reason. He's doing it for the hive inside the position when we speak about this, Mashallah when it comes to that

00:50:01--> 00:50:40

Another nodal point is that when the king eventually finds out about use of illicit arm and summons for him to be liberated from prison, he refuses and instead says, it'll be a lot bigger illuma bellone swatting let you combine it Do not be bkd. Nanny, go back to your master and inquire of him. What happened about the women who cut their hands. My Lord has knowledge of their cutting Guile. He remembered his Lord in such a state, just as he did back then when making the initial request. Now, so at this point, he makes another point. He says that Okay, so you You people are saying that he was really eager to get out of prison? Yeah.

00:50:42--> 00:51:17

So eventually the king does find him and say to someone, go and get him out of prison. Okay, that's enough for him. Now. What do you say to that person? It'll get a lot bigger. First. Bell, nice Swati lady called fire in Indiana. He says to them, he says that guy I'm not going to get up and just know that I'm not going anywhere. It'll do you go back to the king and ask him to investigate what happened to those women that cut the hands. I'm not here just to get out of prison. I want justice to be served

00:51:19--> 00:52:04

in prison for so long. One trans comes along. King says that's enough come out. No, no, no, I'm not coming. I don't know coming out because I don't want people anything. Oh, he just wanted to get out of prison. I don't want it for myself. I want the help to be come known. Okay, so to go back, go back over good king and say, you know, those women cup and it only got the hands during investigation. Okay, Justice needs to be served. Even that shows that he wasn't in it for himself. He wasn't showing the lack of any stage. And even in the end of this verse is in Rob BBK the who became the hidden Allium. Indeed, my master last panatela is very knowledgeable, fully aware of the

00:52:04--> 00:52:13

plotting so he says that he never forgot Allah in such a you know an amazing situation where he's just been told you're a free man.

00:52:14--> 00:52:18

He doesn't mean forget a lie in that situation. You know when you get really excited sometimes.

00:52:22--> 00:52:23

everyone forgets about law

00:52:25--> 00:52:39

that's what happens when you get excited. So you think in this hell where he's super excited now he's been told That's it? No more you're going to get out your numbers a lot. So he doesn't forget a line this situation how could you forget a line that situation?

00:52:40--> 00:52:42

So amazing analysis will last somebody.

00:52:44--> 00:53:28

He ended up staying in that prison for bill by icynene. Not out of punishment from Allah subhanaw taala for having left a word or doing something Haram, but because that is what the people had already decided when they imprisoned it. Okay, so how do we explain the last part of the verse for levita fucidin? Belarusian how do we explain that? Okay, so if the ex prisoner is saying forgot to make mention of use of Islam to the king, okay. And so you say some spent another seven or eight years in prison? Yeah. Meaning, that is what Allah had decreed when to spend those years in prison. He wanted to, or there was an attempt to get out earlier, but it failed. And he ended up staying for

00:53:28--> 00:53:57

the term that I had already decreed for him, which was to see the full term out. And that full term did something for us this now. Number one is set him up in order to interpret the King's dream later on, which will get him out. And secondly, the whole telopea process in prison living there for so many years. It changes a person toughens the person up and give someone Jani some skills that they can use in their life later on. We've spoken about this before john, so we're not going to now.

00:53:58--> 00:54:16

Now so his interpretation is and if levy theft rescission means so he ended up staying in prison for the time that he was supposed to in the first place. Meaning what was already intended by Allah subhanaw taala not as a punishment, but because this is what a lot wanted. Yeah.

00:54:17--> 00:54:59

The conclusion is that useful Islam committed no such thing which is being mentioned by Allah when Allah mentioned the sending of any profits Eileen was certain He always makes mention of it is still far alongside it. Here we find no such mentioned to be safer coming from useless and I'm just like none was mentioned regarding his hum towards the wife of Aziz. Another fantastic amazing point that he makes he says, Okay, look in the Koran so you say you made a mistake. Now this is not just a mistake. It's actually a big mistake to do something either you agree or not. Place your torkel in other than Allah and it's having Toklas word you firstly placing in someone other than Allah.

00:55:00--> 00:55:13

There's a level of shift given the okay. So the prophets can make mistakes. However when Allah tells us about the mistake what we find is Allah tells us about the

00:55:15--> 00:55:21

case number one or the minister here. He made a mistake far also

00:55:23--> 00:55:32

here about Islam he did something which was an act of disobedience to Allah subhanaw taala out of banner volum nanpu Salah well after filling out a

00:55:33--> 00:55:37

clear cut mention of his repentance

00:55:38--> 00:55:41

another prophet who knows another prophet that made a mistake and then he is

00:55:43--> 00:55:56

Eunice universalism yes so what what did he do was mistake enough the people instead of continuing the alternative he left the people okay okay so a lot by the whale then it makes $1 to a lot what do you say in

00:55:59--> 00:56:00

the in the

00:56:03--> 00:56:05

in the control of oil I mean

00:56:06--> 00:56:16

says clearly I indeed was of those that did wrong. Clear mentioned of repentance. Another prophet

00:56:17--> 00:56:24

another prophet. Who else do you know in the Quran where he made a mistake? And Allah mentioned that mistake and then straightaway alum engine is in

00:56:28--> 00:56:29

no hurry sir.

00:56:32--> 00:56:35

Yes, the that he asked me about his son.

00:56:36--> 00:56:42

Okay, well that's okay. No, that's true. So there's something more clear than other other other cases more clear.

00:56:44--> 00:57:04

So yeah, who says that we're gonna say yeah, we'll say sir Um, so you know, coworkers only sir Lisa barley. Islam struck this minor blow for colada and he was the guy failover dried straightaway Allah and he accident to murder Okay, accidental killing

00:57:05--> 00:57:30

mistake made by Musa masala Islam. He says cleaning sort of passes, that, indeed I made a mistake, you know, for for Allah. And Allah says for Africa, forgive him. I forgive him, meaning he made a mistake made Toba. Okay, so what you're saying in the Quran every single time with our exception, a profits mistake is mentioned then the default is mentioned on Saturday. Okay. So What about here?

00:57:32--> 00:57:41

Any mentioned obviously for use Walesa nothing at all. So I have noticed so far has mentioned it means that he never made a mistake in the first place.

00:57:42--> 00:58:01

Achieve analysis, analysis. So he said again, Subala go back in the story. Allah Allah says, Allah, Allah hametz be wahama be her. And she had hung for him. And he had hum for her meaning desire.

00:58:02--> 00:58:41

No, I didn't have dessert. We mentioned this before long discussion again. He didn't have a desire. Oh, no, he had bad design. He acted upon it. None of both. These interpretations are wrong. He didn't have desire. He never acted upon it. He never did anything wrong. It was natural. That's why no ecfr was mentioned. I don't know if you remember that from before. Same point here. So make no mistake no so far. Okay. So that is the conclusion that a marshmallow comes to that he made no such mistake whatsoever. never showed a login for Quran Allah subhanaw taala. He was of the toughest of all people. It is Sam. And that brings us to the end of this notice. Hannah Coloma Shinola in
