Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam, ala MV mursaleen The Bina Mohammed in Florida and he was such as Marian from a very cinematic Houma, la humor care to mothers brothers and sisters, and welcome to the 15th episode now, of this Tafseer of salt Yusuf Ali Salaam.

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

We've got two very interesting part of the story. Now the life of useful Islam is going to take a U turn. This is what's known as the Optiva. This is now the turning around of his life to be on a completely different course, from a new perspective is going to become so much better than it ever was, because this is the point where he now comes down to prison.

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

Got to the verse for loss of Paradise says that the king was given a dream, a true dream. And a Saudi regime. Allah said that this shows that, you know, the Kufa, disbelievers can also be granted a true dream while the king was a disbeliever. So he was given a very strange dream that basically made him

00:01:24--> 00:02:14

a little afraid as to what the interpretation was, was the dream. He saw seven fat cows being devoured by seven skinny cows is very strange. What does that mean? And on top of that, you saw seven spikes of green corn mean vibrant, you know, ripe corn. And then seven grains of withered away spikes of corn as well. So what does that means I called his manner, which is his notable scholars of that time. I have the actual Russian mala said something interesting. He said that the Egyptians are located at that time, they were known for the ability to interpret dreams or there was this is one thing they were really good at. Now, like in our times, people would say, there was an alien

00:02:14--> 00:02:17

that flew over the earth and said, Oh, 21st century, one thing they're really good at is

00:02:19--> 00:03:02

making Hollywood films in hollywood, bollywood, bollywood. So one thing we're good at, is making great films. Okay, you better rewind back a little bit, go down to the Egyptians at this time, values flew over that time, they would say, oh, you're really good at interpreting dreams. So the king has a dream and calls on his people. And they're the most qualified people at that time to interpret dreams would you know call a boss? These are mixed up with dreams? Yeah, we don't know how to interpret these mixed up type of dreams. Meaning they they're not real. There's no real dream doesn't really have an interpretation. Okay, it's the way they're trying to play with the kingdom

00:03:02--> 00:03:18

trying to play safe by saying no, we don't know the interpretation or so it doesn't even have interpretations. It's not even a proper dream. So how is like those dreams that you see because you've been looking or you've been thinking about something a lot in the day? So you end up seeing at nighttime? You don't know about those?

00:03:20--> 00:03:40

But it is a true dream. Okay, so the king if you like, he's not happy with down so and now this King's dream is floating about in Egypt, people are thinking you know, that dream so do they have a meaning or not? Why is that meaning King still concerned about it? And this is brings us up to the verse that we'll be taking today.

00:03:41--> 00:03:56

Okay, this is verse number 46. Sorry, 40 540-647-4849 and verse 50. inshallah. So let's start by reciting this passage. Sharla

Armenia salatu salam ala rasulillah.

00:06:21--> 00:06:22

So,

00:06:23--> 00:06:29

the king declares his dream. And the most qualified people say that I don't know what it means.

00:06:31--> 00:07:09

Who knows what it means the only person who knows what it means is useful. So he's even more qualified than anyone else to interpret dreams. And that's kind of like a son of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because this is like a miracle that he gave us about a tsunami to be able to interpret dreams. He was able to interpret his own dream when he was just a young boy. And now he's being able you can interpret any dream, even this dream, which no one else can, as a sort of a law because this is how a legend Allah sends prophets to people who he gives them miracles, that the people at that time actually very good at doing themselves, yet they can't do this thing was the Prophet is doing

00:07:10--> 00:07:46

like most LS around, right, Allah Jalla gave the staff the staff, when when he throws it down, it turned into a huge snake, gigantic snake. And the thing is at that time, you know, you got the magicians and the magicians, they really good at magic, you know, so when they hear about this, it's just a trick, we've got loads of these guys that can do things like that. But when they bring their staffs, and they cost it down, they tend to do snakes. And then musalla Islam does is what everyone can tell that this is this is an actual miracle of God.

00:07:47--> 00:07:55

saying to me, he said Islam, he said Islam was a miracle was one of the miracles, he said, so that he could do it cure the blind.

00:07:57--> 00:08:30

And the leper, someone suffering from leprosy. Now, amazingly, at that time, people were very much into, you know, medicine and being able to treat people for the ailment. So they already very clued up about this thing. So when somebody else turns up and say, he's a prophet, and on top of that he can do he can out, you know, he can outmatch them in something that they already very good at. It makes them even more convinced that what this person is speaking the truth about his message. Do you see? So in the same thing with Muhammad Sallallahu sallam,

00:08:31--> 00:09:15

the Arabs at that time? Were the masters of language, you know, they will share the masters of poetry. And then Mohammed Salah Salaam says, I'm a prophet, I'll prove it to you. Here's my miracle, the Koran, which utterly you know, left them, you know, speechless. How can he be saying such words, these words, they're so powerful and eloquent? We can't match them. None of us can imagine not even the most proficient in poetry can come along and map something like that. Same thing with useless. Okay? Dreams, we cannot interpret dreams. Okay, what about this dream? Actually, we don't know about this one. One person who can use for this setup. Okay, so this dream now floating around Egypt, and

00:09:15--> 00:09:16

no one knows what it means.

00:09:18--> 00:09:23

They don't realize is verse 45. According to the Naja min Houma what dekora back

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

then

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

the ex prisoner, remember there was two experiences right? Two that came to us first law and told him about the dream, the one that gets out and lands a job as a butler for one of the rich and famous. He's, he remembers useless. Okay, so you can imagine the story like he's working. And, you know, maybe he's serving some of these very knowledgeable, you know, high class people. And they're talking about the King Jr. The king, you know, Malik Savi is not very happy. You know, no one's able to interpret his dream he saw vexmen

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

Who's gonna tell him? Who's gonna tell the interpretation?

00:10:04--> 00:10:11

is pouring the drinks in I dream that we use of restaurant pay?

00:10:13--> 00:10:58

Or no, we can't have the dream. Yes, Allah says what dekora what dekora this word here is actually if tecora if the Corolla because in Arabic is very difficult to say the Arabs, they do this thing called if done in sort of, they change the words that makes it nicer to say what dekora it dekora which means that he remembers bad oma Banda, after oma Obama in this context means a certain portion of time. We can all be reassigned to that. Not Obama, but an AMA means after some forgetfulness says like, the guys forgot about Islam. He's so happy with his job. Okay, people forgot to do that thing that one thing they said as long as have to do which is to mention his plight to the king is totally

00:10:58--> 00:11:26

forgotten about users. Then one day, it dawns on him. Oh my god. Yeah, I know, somebody can tell you that dream. Use what is what they call a bad omen after is forgotten for a while. Okay, so what did you say? Other than a B? Oh, cool. So like, you know, he's the Kings there as well, somewhere. All these kind of high classy, but he just, he's just a butler, you know, he's gonna come he's gonna approach the tables gonna tell everyone that he knows, but he's gonna say,

00:11:28--> 00:11:47

I don't want to because everyone's like, sharp, we're gonna say we use talking to front looking for what's wrong with you? Because no, no, no, no. I'll tell you, I'll inform you of that we have this dream, what? You, you're gonna tell us for a saloon. So he makes a request. So send me means send me away.

00:11:48--> 00:12:24

For me is that? I don't know the interpretation myself. By no way I can go get it. Okay. So he doesn't tell them who knows interpretation. He wants to keep that from them for now, he wants to kind of build some suspense, you know, that useless? I don't want to give his name away. And if I say that, you know, the prisoner, they might say we talked about prison. It sounds sounds a bit iffy here. We're not gonna let you go into prison and get someone out? No. So he just says, you know, just send me and I will not be so sure that he can told me that very, very confident that usefulness knows interpretation. Why?

00:12:25--> 00:12:32

Because he's interpreting his own dream. And he's found his own dream to be just as useful Islam told him would be.

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

Okay. So he says, No.

00:12:37--> 00:12:38

So send me away.

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

Me Now,

00:12:42--> 00:13:17

some historians said that the prison of use his son was actually somewhere outside of Egypt, he's languishing in some prison that's not even in the city, somewhere, somewhere. A bit far away lies in the outskirts. So for our saloon, send me away, it's gonna take some time for me to go there and get the interpretation and come back. So he makes a request, because he's not allowed to go. He's like a servant. You know, what do you do? You can't go anywhere. So he's like, I want permission, please. Let me go. I'm so sure I can find out for you. So he said, he's allowed to go he's given permission to go.

00:13:19--> 00:13:33

Now he turns about the prison. Verse number 46, you sufu au Hasidic Athena fee, severe Eva, karate encima. Oh, true, full use. You see how he's going back to the prison. Now.

00:13:35--> 00:14:08

You would have thought you go back and say, you know, I'm so sorry for forgetting to tell you about forgetting to tell the king about your request. It just slipped my mind. It doesn't use anything. He just says. Use of a USC deep, all truthful one. Look at the way he remembers him. He remembers him as being a C D, as it is what they call mobilenav. It's a more intense way of saying truthful persons is like the really, really honest person use of that's you. That's who I remember us. Okay.

00:14:09--> 00:14:52

And what did he say? If Tina give us the fatwa give us the Father of this dream. And he tells him the dream. And interestingly, here, National nofal makes a point he said, you know, before, when they had a dream, they said, this is the dream. We're not a bit nervy to really give us the inbox inform us of the dream interpretation. But when it came to this time, but the King's dream, it doesn't actually say, you know, the Bitna inform us he says, If dinner, which is to say give us a fatwa. So he said that the reason why he used a different word here is because he's got so much more respect and honor for use for Islam. You know, before in prison, he knew that he's a decent guy. But

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

when he interpreted his dream and gave him some amazing power, and then you know, his dream actually came true and how you got home

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

different level of respect for him. So when he comes to me, he's like, you know, move this up,

00:15:05--> 00:15:11

please, we need a photo from you is the King's dream. Okay, so then he raised him the dream was the dream.

00:15:12--> 00:15:17

Seven fat cows being developed by seven skinny cows and seven,

00:15:18--> 00:16:05

seven spikes of fresh corn and seven other spikes of withered away corn. Now, why am I asking you this photo loudly in order, hopefully that Algeria in a nursery can go back to the people of Egypt blabla, whom we are alone and so that they will come to know, come to know what two interpretations first interpretation is that they'll come to know the dream. So everyone's kind of waiting on this, they really, really need this from you right now. So everyone will be so appreciative of this, of the second meeting is that we will come to know about you and who you really are. And this is your opportunity now, like, you know, to kind of get your name out there, your plight, the injustice

00:16:05--> 00:16:11

that's been done to you. And you know, inshallah maybe will become free because of this law alone, we are alone, so they will come to know.

00:16:13--> 00:16:18

Okay, the thing is, here, there's a more sinister Tafseer there's a more like,

00:16:19--> 00:16:25

the seed which looks upon the ex prisoner more of a bad light. The other series that

00:16:27--> 00:16:58

the reason why he didn't save to the king and the people in the first place, then we go to use of is because you want to get credit for the dream himself. Is that ultimately the dream at some time, first year, I worked out already give me a few days yet, I just needed some time off. Work cannot come back to you. And on the way it goes to use of funds to come back. And then you can tell so he's like saying La La Meola Moon is definitely saying that, you know, they'll come to know and I'm not saying for myself here is for them. This is like being baseline

00:16:59--> 00:17:42

is not for myself. What am I going to get this? Nothing is for the people of Egypt, you know, this offering? Help them please. So it's like being sly. But the thing is, is this really a correct way to interpret to any makeup suit of this ex prisoner? Not really. First of all, this hasn't been mentioned by the set of this type of Tafseer of the ex prisoner looking at in a more sinister light. And secondly, because of two other reasons. First of all, the fact is that he says for LC Lu. He says send me means send me somewhere. Okay? He's already telling them that I'm going to mitigate the interpretation. That's the first thing. Okay. So obviously, when you say someone says I'll find out

00:17:42--> 00:17:43

for you, allow me to go.

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

Okay, so you don't know you're so

00:17:47--> 00:17:52

clear. And secondly, when he does come back to the king and says, This is why the king say,

00:17:53--> 00:18:12

called Maluku, Tony be bring me use of an Islam. It's already clear that he's not trying to get credit for the dream interpretation. Yeah, he's just doing something which is a genuine thing to do. Yeah, so maybe it's not a good idea to give this other type of the suit of this ex prisoner.

00:18:13--> 00:18:13

They

00:18:15--> 00:18:37

now comes the interpretation of the dream call a desert arunas server and see Nina the other family has sought to further roofie Samba de la Paulina be methaqualone he said, so for seven years in the normal way and leave that which you harvest in the A except for a small amount from which you eat. Now suparna rG

00:18:38--> 00:18:47

Wrangler said look how useful it is, um, he doesn't say anything harsh to this man to say you

00:18:49--> 00:18:59

know, what, it allows you to do it several years, obviously waiting for you. And you come back and you ask me another question. supermodel

00:19:01--> 00:19:03

This is what anybody else would say. Right?

00:19:04--> 00:19:11

It is the same thing. In fact, he, he said he listened to him. He said okay, Oscar,

00:19:12--> 00:19:38

no problem. And then the answers follows the answer comes his own and not just an answer. He says, Allah says that our own seborrheic Nina the other he says, you're going to meeting the people of Egypt says that Aruna, this is the plural, you're going to harvest for seven years. Now sounds like he's just telling him what's going to happen. He's not actually doing that. He's actually telling them what to do.

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

Okay, you continue to harvest on just as you're doing now for another seven years. Don't stop. In fact, the property for the next seven years keep on doing it okay? For now, how sad don't roofie some moolah now, whatever you get off the harvest for those seven years, then store it up.

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

And the way you say stood up, he says keep the corn inside the spikes, because the spikes, basically they enclose the cone. And if you keep him in there, they'll basically stew and keep for longer than they would if you took them out. Okay? And that kind of implies that you harvest when you do build some massive stone houses okay? Enough for the harvest of the whole of Egypt and start basically filling up as much as possible. As much as possible. Illa Allah Allah Mata Quran except for a little bit that you eat, meaning that you're going to harvest and store most of it. And what you eat, eat just a little bit, meaning for the next seven years, ration the food out to the people. Yeah, just

00:20:45--> 00:20:58

ration out No, like in terms of war, food discuss what do they do? nation has a ration now. Okay. Each family will get any one bread loaf for a week, cheese milk colosse. So that's basically what he's telling them.

00:20:59--> 00:21:03

So is this a dream interpretation? Or is this more than a dream interpretation?

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

What do you think? What's even asked for?

00:21:13--> 00:21:32

Very good. Yes. And he said that he was asked for the dream interpretation, but he's giving the solution to the dream interpretation. Yeah, the dream interpretation basically, is that you're gonna have seven good years, you're gonna have seven badges. masam. Yeah. That's basically the end of the story. No,

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

it doesn't do that.

00:21:36--> 00:22:18

He says another interpretation, I'm going to tell you the solution to the problem, which is that you're going to be hit by a recession in year eight from now. Okay, so he's pauwela rG after all of this, and after everything that the people of Egypt have done to him. remember Allah Allah, Allah said before he was in prison, before he was sent into prison, that they saw all of the ayah that pointed to his innocence. And despite that, they still imprisoned him. He was suffering at the hands of the Egyptians, okay, and even this man has done him wrong. But despite that, his responses his responses one of generosity, his responses, one of kindness.

00:22:19--> 00:22:41

Okay, so it continues now filmer yet do you mean badly that you can set on tschida Khulna them to the hoonah illa Paulina Bhima door soon then all of that 700 years will arrive in which you can eat from what you set aside for for them except for a little which us store

00:22:42--> 00:23:34

so, after seven years of good harvest, he ate, when it kicks in, that's when things are going to start going bad. And when things start going bad, you can rely on the store houses you can rely on the storehouse you can start eating them start eating the feed from there, but the reality is that as he ate 910 1112 1314 go by what's gonna happen to this two houses this full year after year, they're going to start depleting here. The Do you see that dream interpretation here? See the seven skinny cows devouring the fat cows? This store has the fat who's eating them the skinny cows Yeah, I mean the seven years of famine are gonna devour what you stored up in the seven years of plenty very

00:23:35--> 00:23:59

edgy symbols there's like a code almost you know this useful Assamese basically cracking Okay, so it says in lapolla metocean, except for literal which you store meaning that try and store as much as you can. Because wherever you store is going to be taken here however much you store is going to be taken so store up as much as you can.

00:24:01--> 00:24:29

So what what any one interesting thing is that look how his life Ally's made him live is prepared him for this point in his life. How does he know how to formulate a financial rescue package? Because this is what it is, isn't it? He said you're gonna hit by a recession. And I know how to bring you out of recession and who knows how to come up? How to tell a nation how to come out of a recession that's quite especially it's not enough.

00:24:30--> 00:24:47

So how does he any have interpreting dreams? That's one thing that he koverman Magnum and European. That's what modular told me. But what about the financial, you know, economic type of thinking and education. Where did that come from?

00:24:56--> 00:24:58

I live with Mr. Cameron.

00:25:02--> 00:25:08

He's living with the disease. Yes, he was brought up in the house of Aziz, who was azeez.

00:25:10--> 00:25:11

State Treasurer.

00:25:13--> 00:25:59

He's the state treasurer. He's the guy who knows how to run the finances of the whole country. So Allah, Allah, Allah, He taught him everything from all angles. Everything in his life is playing a beautiful part. later on. La Jolla decreed that is going to be taken as a slave but into whose house has disease. Okay. And disease was one thing for sure he was, he was a state treasurer. So he lived in his house he witnessed, you know, him doing his work day on day in day out, heard him on the phone, having these meetings on the phone and you know, and so on and so forth. So he learned firsthand like an apprentice almost how to be the state treasurer. Okay. And then what do you know,

00:25:59--> 00:26:02

this muscle comes at his doorstep was in prison.

00:26:05--> 00:26:15

And that is why it's upon us sadly, Rahim Allah said, When Allah subhanaw taala wishes for something to happen, he brings the cause for it to come together to and this is very eloquently displayed in a story of use for esalaam.

00:26:16--> 00:27:12

Okay, now something quite strange. It seems like he's given the dream interpretation. Okay. They add something to it, which are going to ask you is this from the dream? Or is it not from the dream? He says some yet team embody their own fee, you know, super fee. Yeah. Soon. Then after that another year will come in which the people will be helped by rain in plenty. And when they once more will press. So he says after these, after how many years now? Is he talking? What is year 15. So, on year 15, you're going to have one year where you awfulness you also must be there's going to be fertile rain coming down in abundance here is going to be not just things going back to normal.

00:27:13--> 00:27:21

But things actually going to go very well for you in this year, you know, it's going to be so much wealth, that is going to come to you.

00:27:22--> 00:28:06

And so much so that Wi Fi as the road and in the in that year, you're going to Yeah, soon yeah, soon means that you're going to make to drink, make to drink. So it says if according to one interpretation, shokaku rahimullah said that they're going to have so much fruit and vegetable that is going to be harvested. That what do people do when they go excess fruit? You know, what, if they got so much through, you know, is is too much to eat. And if you got an E or they start making juice from it, right, and start pressing and making juice from it, and then they sell them. So you're gonna have so much fruit and vegetable that you're going to be just using the surplus to make juice,

00:28:06--> 00:28:22

there's going to be, you know, on fruit juice basically, that year. Another interpretation is that it is going to be a lot the older livestock is going to be, you know, very fat and juicy, and it's going to produce a lot of milk for you. So you're going to be drinking a lot of milk in that year.

00:28:24--> 00:28:36

So with whatever the case, it means that any this year is going to be fantastic. Yeah, absolutely fantastic. Now, is this from the dream? Or is this not from the dream? Who thinks that from the dream

00:28:38--> 00:28:50

is from the dream? Seven fat cow, seven fat cows being eaten by seven skinny cows, seven green spikes and seven with the waist spikes? You think is from the dream?

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

It is for the dream?

00:28:54--> 00:28:57

He think of soldering. What part of the dream do you think is from

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

the end?

00:29:10--> 00:29:13

So 77 withered away spikes and seven green spikes.

00:29:19--> 00:29:20

Thinking about again.

00:29:24--> 00:29:24

yourself? Yes.

00:29:28--> 00:29:31

After 14 years,

00:29:32--> 00:29:32

so I mean,

00:29:38--> 00:29:41

he said seven years. Yeah, seven years, but

00:29:42--> 00:29:45

next year must be good.

00:29:47--> 00:29:55

Yeah, I mean, okay, so let's say after seven years, it means bad. Yes, after the seven bad years. Now does the dream tell us about the next year.

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

So the way is he bringing this

00:30:02--> 00:30:04

Okay from Revelation Anything else?

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

Extra

00:30:09--> 00:30:14

Okay, so you think he's not from the dream? Okay, so okay so he says not for the dream Why?

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

Given an extra

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

bonus

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

bonus

00:30:34--> 00:30:43

he's given him a bonus I kind of get what you're saying that he's given them a bonus but what do you mean? Like he's told him about the 15th year which is outside of the dream rivet

00:30:53--> 00:30:57

Okay, okay. I think I think I get your point there anything else from the robbers

00:31:01--> 00:31:05

Do you agree that is outside of the dream is not part of the dream. And he's giving something extra

00:31:06--> 00:31:09

type so when you Why is he giving something extra for?

00:31:10--> 00:31:12

What do you think he's trying to do by telling them about year 15

00:31:14--> 00:31:18

gives him hope okay. really deserve hope of the dungeon.

00:31:19--> 00:31:20

But yeah, it's true. Maybe

00:31:23--> 00:31:25

he's gonna go back to until this dream interpretation to

00:31:27--> 00:31:30

the king. So the king is going to hear this right.

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

And this kings is gonna be like, seven good years. Some bad years micromobility then

00:31:40--> 00:31:44

oh, and the 15th year is going to be really good. How do we know is

00:31:46--> 00:32:31

this guy what did you get the stream from? Seriously bream to me. Yeah, this is Polish showing the the smartness and the intellect of use of Islam, that he's sending a message to the king. And this way of Naresh Rahim Allah mentioned as well that he's sending a message to the king, that any This is more than just interpretation. Yeah, this is a solution. Yeah, this is he says, basically send a shout out to basically your salvation, how to save your kingdom. So obviously, if the king knows, and you hear something like that, he's gonna want to get that guy and bring him close to him. Yeah. person who knows how to save me from this. He's someone very special, bring him to me and find out

00:32:31--> 00:33:11

exactly what happens. You know, it's quite amazing. Because he doesn't say anything. He doesn't say anything explicitly to the exclusion. I didn't say this is a dream interpretation. Okay. And I'm going to give you the solution. And on top of that, you know, I've been to and I know a few things about having, you know, being able to navigate through these tough times, tough economic times. So tell that to the king as well, right? There's any of them. So how, like, he just puts it all together in any three beautiful statements like this. You don't even know what's going on. You know, but the king knows what's going on. You know? So it's very, very nice, smart and intelligent from

00:33:11--> 00:33:11

usefulness

00:33:12--> 00:33:29

is one word analysis here that will take his bow and that is the word you see. It means here, right? And the proof of year of arm is r1 years. But there's another word for year in Arabic

00:33:30--> 00:33:31

is center.

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

Center and approval of center is seen or sent out.

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

So here if you look back at this verse, Okay, first of all food service a call a dessert, Aruna Sabha and you will continue to harvest For how many years? Seven years what word is used for years?

00:33:54--> 00:33:55

See me.

00:33:57--> 00:34:01

Okay, but then when he when he speaks about the year 15 What word is used for you?

00:34:03--> 00:34:11

Okay, so he's a different word for you. He's his arm for this verse and for the previous verse he's seen.

00:34:13--> 00:34:32

Now, one of the scholars analyzing this he said in the Quran what you find, generally speaking, not every single time that the context actually dictates when a modular use the word arm and when you use the word center. And he said with regards to a context which is about something bad, or difficult or challenging, Allah uses the word

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

Sunnah and singing when Allah speaks about something good, okay, and beautiful and easy is what

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

is quite amazing. Then that useful is around and what he's talking about the 15th year. He says, it is going to be a fantastic arm, a great year using that word and not center, but he's talking about those difficult times.

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

Even the first seven years are going to be difficult to get rationing food. Egyptians like to eat those seven years. You're gonna be God much, and even the next seven and a half days even worse, so he's the word seen. And he said, Look how Allah and Allah spoke about new serum. Allah said, No Hello sir I'm Surah alenka boot in verse number 14 for levita Fie him alpha center in the home cinema. And so we know her Islam stayed with them, meaning he continued to give down to the for how many years?

00:35:32--> 00:35:48

How many is Allah say, alpha Santa 1000 center years in law except take away 50 years, but how did Allah say 50 years in the home center? armor except 50.

00:35:51--> 00:36:08

Because they said this 50 years, I must have minus away. That's the first 50 years of his life when he was growing up, it is not yet a prophet giving that power. So those are fairly easy as compared to the other 950 years. And which is he's basically, you know, really having a tough time giving that to the people

00:36:09--> 00:36:15

quite unusual and panela This is the nature of the Quran to be such amazing and eloquent.

00:36:17--> 00:36:20

Okay, so do someone have a question for desire universal

00:36:31--> 00:37:16

law can be something he inferred himself, because if the seven years prior to that are going to be very difficult, then after seven years, the land is going to be pretty much dead. And there's not going to be rainfall for seven years, no much growth, you know, all of these things are going to basically kill the land completely. And to bring the land back to a normal state. You don't need just no amount of rain anymore. You actually need surplus of everything, rain minerals, and it's very interesting that he used the word you awfulness because life is another word for rain. mop is also word for rain Mater can refer to rain, which is beneficial and non beneficial, like acid rain.

00:37:16--> 00:37:17

But

00:37:18--> 00:37:51

life It refers to rain, which is very, very lush, you know, with, basically with minerals. And, you know, those type of things that when the hits the ground, it's going to make the ground come back to life again. So it's something you can infer he would have inferred himself possibly that the 15th year is going to go back to normal. But if it's going to go back to normal, it means that it's going to be a fantastic year in order to bring it back to normality after seven very difficult years. A lot of this is something obviously, we are just speculating here, we cannot say for sure, a lot

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

of us.

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

Like I said, this is from the eloquence of Miranda sometimes that you find that Allah janardhana you know, is quite noticeable as well that you use this word and then using another word like how comes there must be something and one of the ways that you find out the difference is not just the linguistic difference between the words because the linguistic difference in the words may not give you the answer. What you need to do is know the linguistic difference between the words and they are dictionaries that do this in Arabic, they are the marchman Farooq, they know they tell you the difference between some synonyms, synonyms, so good and nice. He was interested in good a nice,

00:38:40--> 00:38:58

really short in Arabic they have dictionaries to tell you that and secondly, you need to survey every single time that Allah use these words, look at the context and then see why is it different? And obviously is very, very specialist area. But this is the way they basically find out the answer

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

a lot but it's nothing is something that you can't say for 100% certain, but many times you know, it's something that you can't fault either these kind of remarks are made. And to be honest, the only this is the edge of a quantum miraculous nation are on the verge of 50 of all medical to Navy so the king said Phelim prasun color, Arabic so the king. Okay, now this ex prisoner comes back to the king. He says okay, so I've got the dream interpretation. And here it is. Seven badges seven good years are going to come next seven years going really good. But what we're going to do okay, is we've got to, we've got to build these massive two houses, okay. And just bring the

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

bring the person who told you this to him please Okay. Rather discuss it with him. So the expert is not tells the king the everything that usually is told and the key

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

straightaway, he says, Bring him to me. Okay? So of course, he's told the king that this his use of Islam has told me useful Islam is languishing in prison. And perhaps he's also done reason why which is that you know, he's been he was accused of doing x y&z and he's ended up in prison. So the king in response is to bring him to me. Which means he's no longer going to be in prison anymore. He's going to be freed from prison. And he's going to come and he's going to be basically looked after, by myself. So this is a message with which is going to go to useless now just imagine Yani that was one of us in prison for seven or eight years, nine years, 10 years. And no one's come, I got no

00:40:47--> 00:41:11

lawyer or no family here, no one, okay? One or two dreams. So lo and behold, I managed to interpret the dream of, you know, the Chief Justice Minister and the one person who could get me out of it. He finds out and he's saying, no problem better come out. Call us. Normal prison for you is fine. You can come out now. It won't be our reaction.

00:41:13--> 00:41:22

Course. fellows have freed time to get out of this to a place.

00:41:23--> 00:41:32

Of course, and Pamela, even the professor assylum unbelievably, he said something like this, and how do you have a warrior? Are they allowed around on

00:41:34--> 00:41:43

volocity disease? Well, that person said that had I been in his position? And had I stayed in prison?

00:41:44--> 00:41:52

malaba use valleys. Then, when that day you came to me for a jepto for jeptoo. I would have responded.

00:41:53--> 00:42:29

So he's saying that any useful Islam? What did he do? Allah said filamin Rasul. And when that rule does come to him with that message that don't worry about prisoners anymore, you come to work for the king. What did he say? j Illa. Arabic. Go back. I'm not going anywhere. It'll Jade Arabic, go back to your master mean the king fest and ask him and ask him about what about my battle mythological idea on AWS came about those women that cut their hands.

00:42:30--> 00:42:54

He doesn't want to come out of prison. Now he doesn't want to come a prison. You also stay in prison. You want to stay in prison. That's what I'm saying. But I want you to send a message to the king. Ask him to inquire about what the women that cut the hands. Now why does he say go back to the king and ask him to get the wife of Aziz and ask her why did she try and seduce me?

00:42:55--> 00:43:11

Isn't that the real good person here? The wife of ours? Is she the main culprit behind all of this? Jesus sheep? So why does useless not say go to the king and ask him to inquire about Imperato disease?

00:43:12--> 00:43:16

He says go and ask. Tell him to go and ask about the women that cut their hands.

00:43:17--> 00:43:18

Why does he do that?

00:43:24--> 00:43:27

Okay, so you're saying that because they the greater number.

00:43:28--> 00:43:30

So they if they testify?

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

Yeah.

00:43:34--> 00:43:54

Okay, it's interesting. He hasn't got to the as his wife here, though. He's saying go to the women of Egypt. So let's say let's just follow this through So okay, Kings is quite strange doesn't occur in prison. Why is this guy on? Okay, what does he want? He said go and ask By the way, the cut downs. Okay, bring those women that got their hands.

00:43:55--> 00:43:59

So what's gonna happen is that they're gonna say it's not as

00:44:01--> 00:44:03

we accused him, Uh huh.

00:44:06--> 00:44:09

Didn't didn't really didn't they didn't actually accuse him.

00:44:10--> 00:44:23

What they did is they tried to push him to accept the seduction of the as his wife. So that's what they will give to you. basically trying to push him

00:44:24--> 00:44:29

so they might admit to that, but is that really why he ended up in prison because of them?

00:44:30--> 00:44:46

He ended up in prison because of the Wi Fi Aziz. You close to a very close. Okay, who else has got some answers? yourself? Okay, so the there's an evidence there right? All these women got cut the hands what happened to you guys? So they're going to be like, there was something that happened.

00:44:48--> 00:44:52

Okay, so But why didn't you skip all of that and say, scotch tape as his wife.

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

So he does want people he thinks people have forgotten about him, which is probably true. They have forgotten

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

About and about the, the problems that occur

00:45:04--> 00:45:06

with disease.

00:45:07--> 00:45:09

So he wants to bring it up again. He doesn't want

00:45:10--> 00:45:15

to but if he doesn't want to bring it up again, it'd be like, privately going ask the king as his wife

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

Sally

00:45:23--> 00:45:27

is an inner which is what our brother over here was saying, but why choose indirectly?

00:45:29--> 00:45:31

Oh, Mashallah. Very good, very good.

00:45:34--> 00:45:36

Marsha good catches off.

00:45:37--> 00:46:07

Okay, so this is one reason, okay. This is one reason there is another reason as well. But what Ali said is that is basically going to trap her. It's a very young lady. The one that plotted him is plotted against, isn't it? That he says go to the women that cut their hands, women? Okay, they broke before Malika worksurfaces had the shovel your hands on that? Like, what do you mean shows? Yes. What's this?

00:46:09--> 00:46:10

That's the thing King,

00:46:11--> 00:46:14

you need to speak to a Z sub

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

z sub?

00:46:16--> 00:46:22

Must my number two? Yeah, m z sub. What do you have to say about this?

00:46:23--> 00:47:18

Are we King Malik? sub? The thing is, yeah, my wife, you know, she can I say you need to ask yourself. Your what? Bring your wife in. Okay. Mr. devisees. Now she's it. Listen, everything goes back to you. What do you have to say by itself? It's been more difficult for now to say the line, isn't it? Isn't it the way it comes back? Bang. To her right. Is, is placed squarely before herself. She's no way she can escape. Now. You know, this is panela one of the very amazing ways that our larger law pronounces the innocence of useful Islam. You know, it's an amazing way. So this is one of the reasons why in order to basically trapped, you know, he just brought her by herself. Somebody

00:47:18--> 00:47:29

in prison is saying that you you're going to believe a prison over me is always come down to now. Okay. Maybe you write anything else. There's another reason why

00:47:32--> 00:47:36

he may have a lot of much think maybe justice.

00:47:37--> 00:47:40

Justice here, but to me today is something else.

00:47:44--> 00:47:45

Yeah.

00:47:51--> 00:47:54

Yeah, everyone may suspect something bad about him. Yeah.

00:47:56--> 00:48:02

Okay, I see. So you're saying he wants to clear his name from all angles. Okay, maybe it's

00:48:04--> 00:48:16

okay. So, if we, but the thing is, the brother said that he doesn't out have good manners. He doesn't want to, like, rub it in as his face, you know, by saying go and ask his wife.

00:48:17--> 00:48:47

Because as he's been really good to him, right? He, he has been good to him in the beginning. But he's been very bad to him after that, you know, it's been very bad to him after that in the way that he allowed, you know, his wife to do whatever she wanted, even after catching her red handed trying to seduce him and Yanni basically not doing much as a husband to stop his wife doing silly things. And then on top of that, imprisoning him knowing that he's innocent.

00:48:48--> 00:49:02

I don't think he has a very high level of respect for Aziz anymore after everything that has been through, but you still may have something with your answer. Which is that how is the king gonna respond? If the question is

00:49:03--> 00:49:09

your second command is our fault I think the Kings gonna react

00:49:12--> 00:49:39

he's gonna feel like he's gonna be like attacking himself isn't it? This is what I've actually mentioned that if you use for Islam actually said gone us Iran Aziz, the king would perceive it as maybe like even an attack on himself that this is my this is my second reason Moran man, he talking about him. I can't accept an accusation like that. And also, this is this is another reason perhaps why he didn't say it in such an explicit way.

00:49:40--> 00:49:45

And in rather he said in an indirect way. Okay, so he says

00:49:46--> 00:49:59

this fertility apparently Do not interrupt BBK bkd Hinari. Ignacio said these are the words that you sort of sum at the end is always he says in Nara be indeed my master bkd hiner regarding

00:50:00--> 00:50:46

Plot again, notice how he's making it in the plural. Not her plot is in their plot again, because they all came together to plot against him. Even the women that came, they never tried to seduce him themselves, but they pressured him into submitting himself to the seduction of immortalises. So they were all trying to plan against him. So he says that a llama monster, he knows very well about the cave. And that is basically his expression in showing his connection with Allah and his conviction that Allah ultimately is the one who's going to bring the Justice not the king. Okay, so it was part of love from every angle. He's always connected to a last panel and he's never, ever relying on

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

anyone except a lot.

00:50:49--> 00:51:31

Okay, so that brings us to the end and some lessons now in Charlotte is three lessons which we learned here. The first lesson is that when the last panatela won something he brings about the causes and facilitates it's coming. There's something that nofal mentioned. And this is so true, because Allah Allah, Allah now wants use of Islam to come out to prison. This is the time now. Okay. So how does Allah bring him out of prison? Well, he creates the causes. So one of the causes was what the King's dream, okay? Another cause? Is that what? The prisoner? What do you know, he's actually working very close to the king. And he also knows Yusuf because once upon a time, he was

00:51:31--> 00:51:43

actually in prison, he met us when he knows about his dream. All of these causes, Allah brings all the causes together, when he wants something to happen. And that really should give us a stronger feeling of tawakkol in Allah,

00:51:44--> 00:52:05

that there's nothing that could stop something that Allah wants, nothing that will allow one something for sure will come to happen. And when somebody wants something to happen in their life, they should remember who they place in the hope in. It is a law who can make anything happen. Look how he made use of Islam come out of prison, when there was no one around to help him.

00:52:06--> 00:52:14

Number two, is that you should help people in their times of need. This is quite an important lesson we learned here because

00:52:16--> 00:52:58

look at how useful Islam treated the two prisoners when they were in prison. Okay, and they came to him, they were quite vulnerable. They had a dream, they didn't know what it meant one of the guys guys saw birds eating bread from the top of his head. He didn't know what that meant. They were worried they were anxious. What does it mean and useless. He never turned them away. He sat them down. It gave them any doubt first about Islam. And secondly, then about the dream interpretation. And you know, when you help someone when they crucial time in their life, they never forget you never ever do they forget you later on panela, that same person, what decade back, he remembers

00:52:58--> 00:53:41

useless to them after such a long time after forgetting even about him. What made him remember you such as because you know that guy, he helped me out. When I was down, he helped me out. And even though he never even knew me, even though we were in prison together in prison, people don't treat people nicely. And any in terms of dow as well. It recognizes that any, when there are opportunities to help people, people in financial difficulties or emotional difficulties, someone going through a difficult time in their life, never let that opportunity pass you by to help that person never, for sure a lot will reward you for doing that, if you've done it with the right intention, but there's

00:53:41--> 00:54:23

something else that will come out of it, you know, and that is that person will never forget you. And if that person is a non Muslim, for example, then one day, you know what they may think this guy, you know, or this sister, they were there for me and no one was there for me. I should really listen to that person. And what they were saying about, you know, Islam and how I should embrace it, maybe they had something sensible to say about that I should listen to them. Meaning they will be more easily influenced by you and have a stronger attachment towards you just because of one thing that you did for them. But that thing you did was at a time when they were in serious, serious need.

00:54:24--> 00:54:42

Okay, so that's a second lesson help people in their times of need. Number three, and even use realism, the way he's interpreting the dream is hoping the whole of Egypt the whole of Egypt is going to be totally indebted to him later on in his life is

00:54:43--> 00:54:59

there going to be over the moon with him? This is the this is the guy is the Golden Child of Egypt now, the one who rescued us from this recession. So now when he's going to give them that one later on when he comes out of prison, I think I listened to him or not the only

00:55:00--> 00:55:11

This is the one this is our disease, you know. So it teaches us any we should never overlook doing small acts of kindness for people, especially when that person is in a time of need.

00:55:12--> 00:55:14

And I'll tell you a funny story.

00:55:15--> 00:55:31

And he befriended an Egyptian, an Egyptian, any brother, very practicing very nice. By the end, we're very, very good friends now. This is back in the day when we first became friends. He's a lot older than me, okay. And to be honest, I was not practicing back then.

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

So when I went to Egypt, they and it was a roundabout, this is I think, 2006, one of the first the first time I went here the first time. So he was trying to get married. Okay, now, the only thing I know about his brother is martial law on the deed, had a big law here is to give our civil machine all the time. So I had any

00:55:56--> 00:56:14

you know, I such you know, I looked up to him a lot. Okay, it was kind of like a younger brother to him, as well as a friend. And one day he phones me, okay, he phones me and pick up the phone and says Uncle Sam, you know, he said, I'm not feeling too good today. You know, he

00:56:16--> 00:56:26

went made a proposal. He was trying to get married at that time. And, you know, it wasn't good. protected, basically. It wasn't good for me, you know, he and

00:56:27--> 00:56:28

want to come and see,

00:56:29--> 00:56:30

like, easy.

00:56:32--> 00:56:33

I don't think I'm ready for this.

00:56:36--> 00:56:45

And you know, when you have any solid respect for someone and that person Yeah. And he shows his be vulnerable, you need your support has been overwhelming. Right. So

00:56:46--> 00:56:47

I was too overwhelmed.

00:56:49--> 00:56:51

I don't think I'll be able to cover you today.

00:56:52--> 00:57:12

And he was very bad thing. we'll forgive me. But anyway, I was just I was overwhelmed. I'll admit. But so Paula, any now any, I really regret doing something like that, because I think to myself, I mean, maybe there will never be a time in his life where he will feel like that again. And I'm able to offer help to him, you know, someone of that caliber

00:57:14--> 00:57:32

in your last job, have the opportunity. And moreover, I lost Danny maybe the fruits of doing the act of good towards him as well, because it was my moment of coldness basically. So we don't let those moments pass you by my brothers and sisters, okay, always step up, to help someone when they're in times of need.

00:57:33--> 00:57:41

The third lesson is shehryar came to bring benefit to people's lives and to the life and in the life to come.

00:57:43--> 00:57:54

You see, usually some interprets the dream, and he tells people, the whole nation how to save themselves from starvation. Okay, that's basically the bottom line, he teaches them how to save themselves from starvation.

00:57:55--> 00:58:08

And this shows us that he's the Prophet of Allah, the Sheree or the Allah sends with every single profit essentially, not only came to benefit them in their life to come,

00:58:09--> 00:58:38

but also to benefit them in the life that they live here in this dunya as well. Okay. Now put the mentioned on the quite amazing on a quote what he said. He said this verse is a fundamental one regarding the benefits which surely are seeks to preserve, number one, religion. Number two, life number three, intellect number four progeny. And number five, wealth. He said, This is what shehryar came to preserve the religion of people for life, the wealth, the progeny,

00:58:39--> 00:59:25

and the intellectual people as well. All things that bring about the preservation of such things meaning these five things can be considered as a worthy muscle have a worthy benefit. And whatever compromises any of them is considered a Masada is considered something which is harmful bad that he said that there is no difference of opinion that the objective of the legislator meeting Allah subhanaw taala is to guide people to acquire the best worldly benefits. So they may thrive in knowing and worshipping Allah in an environment of stability. This then allows them to reach happiness in the hereafter. It's quite amazing. He's saying that why does Allah you know, give us a

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

Sherry always tells us certain things are haram serving the halaal. In terms of our worldly dealings, like in terms of business policies, the ribbons haraam, everything else is fine. Just eating Allah says the pig, haraam wine, don't drink it. In terms of our clothing, women, they shouldn't be dressing like this men, you have to stick to this attire as well. So it all of our worldly dealings unless Canada has given us some regulation don't do this and do this. Why? Not only does it bring benefit in the life to come, but it also brings benefit in this life and he qualifies that he says that

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

benefit it brings people in this life is that allows them to live a stable life. So that what, so that they have the perfect environment to know and worship on law, they can do it in that environment better than living in a state of chaos, anxiety, not if they follow these do's and don'ts, the life quality of life requires stable, when it's stable, that's what a person can really worship a lot. And when he worships Allah, then he basically facilitates his happiness in the hereafter. And this is basically the theory of Allah subhanaw taala This is what I came to do. I didn't come to bring people a very,

01:00:40--> 01:01:09

you know, fortunate lives, you know, solutions to all the problems, no problems if you follow Sharia, you don't have no headaches in your life. That's not the case. Many people do think this, that the Sharia came to bring solutions for every single problem in our life, it is not really an accurate statement. Because what it means is what if you follow Sharia? Or if for example, the UK, let's say, follow Sharia for 10 years, and there'll be normal problems in the UK. Is that really true?

01:01:11--> 01:01:56

Well, the thing is our module already said that you know, when you have multiple hired Leah bewelcome that you can lamina Allah created the death and life why why have this life Leah blog below to test you to give you a hard time to basically not make your life easy to make it full of test? Why in order to see which of you respond the best, okay, which of you are best in conduct? So that means Allah wants there to be hardship. So if you're saying Sharia brings 100% solution to every single one of your problems, then immediately it's going to be without problems. Here, ladies without problems, it means this life's easy. If life's easy, then how would Allah say that made your

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

life full of tests on purpose?

01:02:00--> 01:02:06

Ah, so it means we don't really accurate the statement. The statement rather, is that the best, most

01:02:08--> 01:02:40

the most natural life for human being to live can only be acquired by living under the Sharia law. Yeah, this is the best life you could possibly have is when living under Sharia, and it gives a person or human beings stability in order to do the very thing they were created for which is to worship Allah. And when they worship Allah, they build themselves house in paradise. Okay. So any this is, this is how we understand this table of photography. And this brings us to the end of the verse.

01:02:41--> 01:02:42

alone we have the question of Allah.

01:02:43--> 01:02:46

have to worry Kotaku. not hiring.
