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

Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen salat wa salam O Allah at a man, a Camilla nuclear killer he admiring the Vienna Mohammedan. While early he was, he had married some

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

Somali commercial law here Baraka to my dearest brothers and sisters. And this is now soprano law, the 18th lesson in the theory of solid use of Ra ceram.

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

And we'll be covering today in Sharla, verse number 5859 60,

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

up to 60, and including 62 in Sharla.

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

Actually, it will do a 363 inshallah.

00:00:56--> 00:01:28

So the story where we've got to now, the episode in the life of use various anon with similar to the disease, the trial of temptation, and the subsequent imprisonment that he faced, all that he went through. And now that's history, as the memory times have changed, they've changed a lot. Usually, saddam now is, has ease himself. Yeah, this is the state treasurer, position number two in the whole country, they asked the king when the king said, you can have whatever you want, at Alinea

00:01:30--> 00:01:38

make me in charge of the store houses, which meant the finances of the country. That's why we're calling him the state treasurer.

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

So

00:01:42--> 00:02:02

remember, the dream of the king, the dream of the king was that for the next seven years, things are going to be going well, they should continue harvesting. And any farming just as normal, with one exception, which is to store as much as possible in these two houses, and eat a little Russian.

00:02:03--> 00:02:39

Because that's going to happen for seven years. And the next seven years was going to be difficult famine, drought, a recession is going to kick in. So the idea was useless. saddam gave interpretation plus dilution, we said that was like a financial rescue package. If you liked the recession, which is in the seven subsequent years. What you can do is you can survive on what you've stood, you can survive and what you stood. And that will take you all the way until the end of the recession into the 15th year, which in which Allah subhanaw taala will give a lot to the country.

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

So this verse 58, what,

00:02:45--> 00:03:06

what to use, okay, now is the part where, what is this where the brothers of use of La Suriname and coming from Palestine all the way over to Egypt, this is now in our shoe said in the ninth year.

00:03:07--> 00:03:32

So seven years have gone past were useful as long as we didn't charge. And on the eighth year now is recession. So one year of the recession passes by, and the ninth year now, two years after the recession is started. The brothers of useful Islam are now coming back to Egypt. Why are they coming back to Egypt? Well, there's some things that you need to know here. The first thing is that

00:03:33--> 00:03:50

the famine spread so far that it was now going outside of Egypt. And also it engulfed if you like, sharm Palestine. So people in that country are now also suffering from the recession.

00:03:51--> 00:04:47

And they came to know that Egypt has this amazing scheme, whereby they have these two houses, and they already guessed that this is going to happen somehow. And they managed to come up with a way to survive. And on top of that, Egypt has if you like a food substitute subsidy policy, people don't want to come to us to get food they can come. What we'll do is you bring was called bill Barr, we'll come to that word, you bring some commodities to Egypt. And for each person that comes we will give them a jahaz which is a common load of foodstuff. Every person that comes you can get one load of camel or food in return for some something and some commodities. So this is if you like the setup,

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

famine is spread. Egypt is the only ones that have this way of dealing with it. And they also have a way of helping others which is this subsidy policy time.

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

So let's read in Sharla these verses before we explain them

00:05:03--> 00:05:07

are also Billahi min ash shaytaan banyuwangi

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

00:07:01--> 00:07:52

alameen wa salat wa salam ala l mursaleen Nabina Muhammad. He was married. Brothers and sisters, we all know how the story of use of La Salaam concludes even though we know how it concludes, we still feel the anticipation and the excitement at where it's going to go now in our the reunion of the families just around the corner. And though we know it is going to happen the way the story pans out and the wellness panels Allah tells it, you know, always is a pleasure to read and enjoy to hear. So this part now 58 last panel data says what do you what do you suffer Uber for the Hulu rla he found out of him that the brothers of use have came into His presence. So it means that they traveled all

00:07:52--> 00:07:55

the way from Palestine, and now they've come to Egypt.

00:07:56--> 00:08:21

All of them except for Binyamin. Okay, Binyamin. So there's 10 of them. And they've come Remember what we said that the plan the program rather that they had an easy to is that every person that comes will get one load of jahaz Yeah, come a load of goods in exchange for some commodities. So Allah subhana wa tada says that now the brothers are coming

00:08:22--> 00:08:57

for the Hawaii, and they enter upon him. And that sets the scene if you like, of, you know, who's in charge, and who's the one of the lower hand that they are now coming to him. And now they enter upon him. And I imagine usefulness and um, you know, his position, the way he must have been dressed like, where he must have been the respect that he's getting from everybody. So they're entering upon him like the entering upon a king, you know, like the entering upon a king. So they are now in his presence. It looks how the situation has changed.

00:08:58--> 00:09:30

They left him for dead fever, but he will do both at the bottom, at the very bottom of this pit this Well, that's the last of him that they saw. They left him for dead. And now they're coming back to him. Okay, he went from a well ha now look at his position that he's in. And what is amazing is that when they left him for dead in the well remember Allah subhanaw taala said that he consoled us about Islam and said what oh hyena la healer tuna.

00:09:32--> 00:09:35

The Emory mhada. Where hula

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

hula is a rune

00:09:40--> 00:09:48

that Allah said and we revealed to use a value system that for show you will inform them of this matter right here.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

whilst they learn that they won't have any idea whatsoever. Now we spoke about how Allah didn't say

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

Home lay on the moon, they will know what's going on. Allah said won't

00:10:05--> 00:10:49

perceive, have any idea what's going on. That was the promise Allah made. And this is the actualization of that promise that now when they come, Allah says that they entered upon him for out of a home. And he, he recognized them straightaway. He saw them, and he knew straightaway that they are my brothers. Imagine how he must have felt mixed feelings, emotions, maybe vengeance. Yeah, maybe amazement. Who knows? I mean, please put yourself in that situation. How would you felt towards those people who left you for dead? who hated on you? Were so jealous of you wanted to kill you.

00:10:50--> 00:11:21

Now you're seeing them. So law says four out of our home. We're home loman Karen. But those 10 Let's imagine there's 10 of them. While home de la who regarding him more than Kiran. They had no idea. It was useful Islam. No idea what sir. There is a number of reasons why that could be first of all, he you know, he's grown so much now as some said it was around 40 years have passed. So he's become a man is no longer no longer boy.

00:11:22--> 00:11:27

Cody mentioned that he must have been dressed in a particular way particular attire. And that kind of, you know,

00:11:29--> 00:12:14

you know, kind of disguise to be was you can really tell even if you looked at him properly. But if not, I should mention something quite amazing. He said that. First of all, what we heard in the story is that every single person who meets usefulness never forgets him. Isn't that true? rewind back to Aziz. When he sees us as a young boy, he goes straight home is a creamy mouthwash. This one special look after this one. He doesn't forget. Then later on, we have the nisswa those women. Yeah, those women. When you said Islam, goes into prison, and then it comes out. And the king calls women. And they say tell us tell me what happened about you cutting your hand and tell me about useless

00:12:14--> 00:12:29

Islam. They say we don't know anything evil to do with him whatsoever. They vouch for who he is in his characters like we know that one, and for sure, nothing that he's ever done wrong. So every person

00:12:31--> 00:12:37

we meet him always remembers him. But last time he's here, the brothers they they had no idea who it was.

00:12:38--> 00:13:25

How comes a strange, everybody remembers him but the brothers. They don't remember him and they brothers. How comes. And the other thing I should mention is look at the verse. If you split the verse in half, what you find is that Allah subhanaw taala says, four out of the home, and he recognized them. And that sentence is what's known as a verbal sentence. Foul offer is a verb, that he noticed them he recognized them. But when Allah spoke about the brothers, he spoke about them using a nominal sentence. Joomla is smear while homeless who monkey rune. And he said there's a big difference between a verbal noun and a nominal verbal sentence and a nominal sentence difference is

00:13:25--> 00:14:11

this. a noun versus the verb, past tense, present tense is caged by time it happened at a particular time. Another thing about verb is that if you mention a verb, not only does it talk about what happened in the past, or in the present, or even the future, it's also reflecting of something that may happen just like that. happened once. Okay? An instance of something as opposed to a noun is not just about time, a book is a noun, a book will always be a book in the past, now in the future. Yeah. So Allah said about useless around four out of our home using a verb as if to say, as soon as he saw them, he knew right away it was, as for the brothers,

00:14:13--> 00:14:41

or they never had any idea, even if they looked at him and glanced at him and analyzed who this man was. They would never be able to work out who it was. No, and the why that is, is because a lot told us that usefulness and um, the way things are going to come back around, is that they're going to come and they're not going to have any idea what's going on. Yeah, it's quite amazing how Allah subhanaw taala you know, said that statement, we're home Lahu monkey rune.

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

The other interesting thing is that useful Islam

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

is got the prime opportunity to round them up, seize them, bring them to the back, and get them beaten up maybe prison prison or maybe even killed. He's got the power to do that. Right. He could do anything he wants. But he doesn't

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

He just holds back. He just holds back. And now when he's holding back, he makes a plan.

00:15:06--> 00:15:16

He makes a plan that he wants to. He wants to have his family with him, all of them. So he's making a plan. And he doesn't he doesn't attack.

00:15:17--> 00:16:10

The next verse while Amanda has beija has empowered to de Biasi Lancome in a vehicle. So the brothers okay. And usefulness to them who they only see as as ease. They start having a conversation. What's the conversation it's not mentioned is left to imagination. But one thing I must say is that Fela magia has a home. BJ has him that when or after useable Islam, he fills up the camera loads. Yeah. jahaz is the is what I have here. Yes, jazz refers to goods that a person travels with or travels in search of. So they've come in pursuit of these goods, they've traveled. So a lot refers to it as jahaz filamin has a home usefulness ROM he loads up that jahaz onto the

00:16:10--> 00:16:11

camels.

00:16:12--> 00:16:23

So after that happens, he says to him, bring me Your brother, from your father, meaning your half brother. So something's happened. His

00:16:24--> 00:17:02

the conversation has led in such a direction that he learns, supposedly that they have another brother they haven't brought. So how did that happen? Some sort of explained that what happened is a composition takes place. And the brothers they say, look, there's 10 of us. And that means we're gonna get 10 camera loads, but there's actually 11 Brothers, there's another one, we left him at home, you couldn't bring him. So can we also have his share? Yeah. So for lamotta has OBJ has him when after you sort of gives them 11 instead of 10. It gives them more because they asking for this is okay.

00:17:04--> 00:17:23

Now, I'm going to tell you to do something, bring me that brother of yours that you just mentioned, bring me that brother, meaning. I know next year, he's going to be feminine as well. I know because of the dream. So you're going to be coming back in next year. So when you do just know that you guys aren't lying. Bring him to me. Okay.

00:17:24--> 00:17:33

So do you see all the already the plan is coming into play. So he's already told them, bring me the other brother next year when you come back.

00:17:36--> 00:17:48

Now, when I made a mistake, that was a major hassle. So after telling them, bring me Your brother from your father, he then does three things.

00:17:49--> 00:17:50

He

00:17:52--> 00:18:27

encourages them or entices them to bring that brother along next year. He threatens them that if they don't, there's going to be consequences. And he encourages them again, but not by words, rather through action. So he uses words to incite them, entice them rather. And then he uses words to threaten them, but then he uses some action. Okay? to entice them again. So as for the first he says to entice them, Allah turn around, and he will kill

00:18:30--> 00:18:31

that don't you all see that?

00:18:33--> 00:18:50

As for me, I hope you'll kill that I gave you the maximum that you guys could have got here, I've filled up your loads, more than even I should have. I've completely failed the measure when it came to your kale.

00:18:52--> 00:19:39

And on top of that, and a hadal munzee lean. On top of that I'm the best of moods. zilean multiline comes from a root of loser. Loser refers to giving food to the guest. Yeah. So he says, not only did I give you everything that you came and asked for, but I hosted you better than anybody else. Yeah, I hosted you on Wednesday now. I've done you know, fairly good job in hosting you guys. They took care of you, gave you whatever you wanted. So I hosted you in such a good way as though obviously, is relating this to them in order to make them feel like you know what, look how much he's done for us. We better listen to him next year. Why is this really some, you know, really encouraging them

00:19:40--> 00:20:00

with, if you like so much, and so many words, so many statements. He's going to say a threat after this as well. And then he's going to encourage them again through some action. What do you think is? Why don't you just leave it at that. Next year? You're going to come back? Bring me your half brother. Why is he going a step further by saying look, look what I've done for you guys. I'll be

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

So good to see you, then after this is gonna threaten them by saying that by the way, if you don't bring him to me, then don't worry, we'll come back here.

00:20:07--> 00:20:07

Why?

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

Why do you think that is? They will they are going to come back regardless.

00:20:14--> 00:20:17

Because that's the only place they can go to to get some

00:20:18--> 00:20:21

don't get this applies because everyone's suffering.

00:20:22--> 00:20:41

He wants the dream to be fulfilled. Now that's that's true. But obviously there's a process there's going to go through a plan he's going to make and part of that plan is to ensure that at least his half brother comes next year. Binyamin here. So he could have just said, Bring Binyamin next year.

00:20:43--> 00:20:52

Yeah, but instead of saying that he goes the extra mile by encouraging them threatening them. Why is quite obvious, not difficult question.

00:20:55--> 00:20:59

He doesn't trust them. History doesn't trust but he knows they're going to come back either way.

00:21:01--> 00:21:03

That's right, it's gonna be difficult for them.

00:21:06--> 00:21:35

They know that he knows that jacobellis ROM father, he's not gonna let this happen. true or not, is going to be very, very difficult for them to get Binyamin to come along next year. Very difficult. Almost impossible. Why would dad let this other one go when the last time you let one go? You never came back through? Not? So that's why he's really going for. Okay, so he says Anna Heilmann sitting on the best of those, you know, that honor the guests in this way.

00:21:36--> 00:21:43

Next verse, verse 6411. Tony v Fela Kayla comandi Voila.

00:21:44--> 00:21:47

Now if you don't bring him next year,

00:21:49--> 00:21:51

what that means work couldn't mean that you guys are lying.

00:21:52--> 00:22:28

So this year you took extra by telling me you had another brother out there and if you don't bring him next year then means you're lying here so that's why says fella Kayla come then there's going to be no kale. And there's going to be no supplies for you next year whatsoever. nd from me, but then I think it will if you can't get around, you could go to somebody else. Maybe you know, it is a big place. They says Well, I don't know Baba coming back here leaving this country. Okay, you can come back anywhere to this country. You think you can get somewhere else don't even think that guy's threatening them.

00:22:29--> 00:22:45

Don't come here. You don't bring your brother not going to get nothing from me. And in fact, you can't even come into Egypt. Okay. So using what we call a carrot and stick approach is giving them some incentive and also the same time he's giving them warning his world.

00:22:46--> 00:22:57

Next verse Paulo's and overall we do and who was in the room, then they respond Babu cetera we do. And

00:22:58--> 00:23:50

they say we will do morava karamba immortalises. She spoke about her Allah said that she tried to do more or the unusable Islam. morality, we said, it means to try and bring someone's bring somebody else around to your type of thinking for you for immortalises that was to try and seduce us with Islam. He his mother was I'm not going to do anything. Her mother was that she wants to do something and more our the men that she's going to try and make his mother like her rather, now the brothers are going to do morada on the Father. They're going to try and bring him around to accepting their request, which is to let Binyamin go with them next year. So they say Sayonara, we do and we're

00:23:50--> 00:23:52

gonna we're gonna try, you know, with our father.

00:23:54--> 00:23:59

Already those words indicate how difficult it's going to be for them. Then they say we're in

00:24:00--> 00:24:22

left alone and indeed, Lamb of Tokyo, we surely going to do it. Yeah. So do you see how the sentence you know, this kind of begins with them saying we're gonna try. And as you know, we're gonna try we're gonna definitely do this in nullify, we're definitely going to do this. So it's like, you know, the talking up to use for this.

00:24:23--> 00:24:44

Use of gives them an order. And they say we're gonna try. We're gonna try we're gonna do laundry wherever you want. Okay, known as E sub, you know, this way you want no problem in that effect. And we'll do that no problem. So it's quite a big how the tables have turned. Now they're taking orders from usefulness and they behaving in this way towards him.

00:24:46--> 00:24:57

Next verse, we'll call alpha t and e ii geoblue. Bottom theory haleem la la mia de una palabra de la la home your geralyn

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

so

00:25:00--> 00:25:51

He's made it clear to them. You're gonna go back to Egypt. I mean, Palestine, come back next year, bring the other brother. Now usable Islam. What he does is he tells his fifth year, which are his male, young servants. Okay, is this useful? Isn't it as a big position so he has many, many servants and he tells some of them into Alibaba to whom put their bill bar, Bill bar, what we said was, refers to sellable commodities, sellable goods, so they broke the law with them in order to exchange for the jazz, right? They will exchange so they've given it, they take it and give us the food, they made the exchange already. Now usefully saddam tells his servants that look, see the commodities

00:25:51--> 00:26:01

that they gave? Put them in their rehab. Yeah, the rehab refers to you know, the saddle that you have on a camel, the saddle

00:26:02--> 00:26:19

on the side of the on the saddle, and it has these, if you like, pockets to put luggage in here. So what you say is to them is take this, that they gave us now and put it back inside the camels inside the saddle of the camels.

00:26:20--> 00:26:23

Why is useful is that I'm telling them to do that.

00:26:25--> 00:26:27

So my laptop has just died.

00:26:28--> 00:26:35

Now we'll call it E and E er Lu bottom feed fury, Harry Garifuna hurt even follow

00:26:36--> 00:27:04

your journey. So that okay, perhaps, yeah, the funa her that when they do get back home, okay, which means that he's going to tell the service to do this in a way that they're not going to even know what's going on. By the time they get home. And they unpack, they're going to see the big law that they took back into their own luggage, meaning has been given back to them. So they will recognize that

00:27:05--> 00:27:23

even colorable. Law, Joan, and seeing that will make them perhaps come back, meaning come back next year. So remember, I said that entices them with words, he threatens them in words. And then he entices them once again, through action.

00:27:25--> 00:27:47

So of course, when they go back and they see the things that they sold, or they are back with them again, they're gonna be amazed how comes he's given them back to us, he must be an incredibly generous and honorable person, look at the way he's treating us. You know, how could we even think about not complying with what he said? But there's another reason as well. Why do you think that useful is

00:27:48--> 00:27:55

told his servants to give back the bar to them? Why, besides the fact that he wants to

00:27:56--> 00:28:05

show them that he's generous person, and they should show sugar to that generosity by coming back next year with their brother, Why else do you think he's given the reply back to them?

00:28:11--> 00:28:14

So they will feel honored by usefulness

00:28:15--> 00:28:18

for returning back and giving them stuff for free?

00:28:25--> 00:28:27

Are they afraid that they need to go back and give it

00:28:30--> 00:28:37

No, because this is going back to their country? They won't come all the way back just to give it they realize, yeah, the foreigner What's going on?

00:28:38--> 00:28:45

What's going on is that they've just been given back everything and been given food for free. That's what they're going to realize.

00:28:46--> 00:28:49

So why did you sell Islam give it back to them?

00:28:59--> 00:29:01

Okay, I saw that a galaxy

00:29:05--> 00:29:13

so Okay, so this is one possibility that when they do come back you know, the the brothers are known for the honesty right

00:29:15--> 00:29:29

there or not for the honesty. So when they come back and tell us that Oh, do you know this Aziz is so generous and he's you know, he was so fantastic we treat us and everything and he just said you know bring back the other one is low and he's gonna give us so much more things and he is really generous person.

00:29:31--> 00:29:32

Can you prove that police

00:29:33--> 00:29:40

are currently prove that Whoa, usually someone's already thought that that might happen. And so he's given them proof.

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

not shown as very good.

00:29:43--> 00:29:44

There's another reason as well

00:29:47--> 00:29:48

is honest.

00:29:50--> 00:29:51

Return sooner

00:29:52--> 00:29:58

or later, it seems like the is going to be one year that they give them enough for one year and they only allow people to come back once a year.

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

Yes

00:30:02--> 00:30:17

this is what the brother mentioned in the beginning but the reality is that they know when they see they are back with them that is a gift. They know that it's not that all something's gone wrong here we've managed to get things for free. Oh no if I give this back

00:30:19--> 00:30:27

true, but this is what we mentioned already that they will feel like man, we need to definitely go back Look what he's done has given us all for free. Yes.

00:30:30--> 00:30:41

It is to sway your approval. So that's the that's the that's the very obvious one. Yeah, that's obviously we already said we will get to that it's about persuading a cobra seven and helping them persuade jacobellis but there's more to it than that.

00:30:43--> 00:30:45

Not to argue What do you mean by that? Not to put them too difficult.

00:30:51--> 00:30:51

Yeah.

00:30:55--> 00:30:57

Mashallah, Mashallah.

00:30:59--> 00:31:45

Mashallah, the reality is if they give the BA now and next year is going to be a famine next year comes from us. Even if we want to go we can't we got no Bellard to go with. We've got nothing to go and exchange with. So useful is not already thinking ahead. or larger than the next year, even though they may want to come. They're going to come with so that's what I'm telling myself. Let's go and put this bar back inside the hell inside the luggage. Okay, so that next year when it comes down to it, they have something to bring, right. It's quite amazing. The planning, you know, behind what you said Islam is doing and all of this panela is from the fall of Allah subhana wa tada

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

the last of

00:31:54--> 00:32:25

the philam arogya illa v him falluja abana monumental kale. So what do you know for Lamar Roger? Oh, so when they do come back, okay. To the father or Lou? They say, yeah, Ivana. Oh, our Father, monumental kale monera Mindell kale, as if they're saying that our next year's supplies already been denied.

00:32:26--> 00:32:55

And all that statement expresses alarm. And it also expresses certainty because they're saying in the past tense money are prevented? What has been prevented our kale our our foodstuff for next year are Russian. What do you mean? is certainly going to be the case next year? Except for Allison manna, Hannah? Except if you send with us, our brother? Yeah, our brother.

00:32:57--> 00:33:16

If you do know, we're in nella hula have a loan, then we will be able to take that measure next year. And by the way that we're in hula have a loan. Indeed, when it comes to him. We are have a loan, protect us. And we'll take care of him. We'll look after him. That sounds similar.

00:33:17--> 00:33:21

Very similar. Almost deja vu. That's the what?

00:33:24--> 00:34:07

This is the second time. Are you being serious? is seriously telling me that let go of this one now and send him with you. But the thing is holla. These two things here. The first is that the next verse is the verse in which they unpack the luggage and find the bar. Yeah. Now the thing is if you come back from a long journey, okay, what's one of the first things you do? You take your luggage out? Okay, and you unpack? And then you have a conversation with people yeah. Usually, is what you do. But the first thing they do is not unpack the first thing they do is go to straight to that and say that

00:34:09--> 00:34:19

masiva next year, nothing for us, unless you send the brother, our brother with us in order to get the measure.

00:34:20--> 00:34:49

That's the first interesting thing that look how effective the plan of useful Islam was RG. That's the first thing they did is to go to that and start to persuade and pressure him. The second thing is the way they spoke was very different to the way they spoke once upon a time when it came to use of Islam. The the first time they came to that and said this, they spoke very differently. They said

00:34:51--> 00:35:00

for autoseal, who now had a yellow terrier lab. They said send him with us, in order that we will yellow

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

Tech well your lab your tear. One explanation was that you know, loads to eat. Okay, we're just gonna feast way lab and we're gonna play, we're gonna have games and we're gonna enjoy some sanding with us. Okay, so we'll have a fantastic time. That's what they said the first time this time round. Okay.

00:35:21--> 00:35:34

What did they say? They make the case in the opposite way. They don't say send Binyamin with us because if we don't, we're not going to get our food next year. They say the opposite way.

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

No food for us next year, unless

00:35:39--> 00:36:21

our brother is sent with us. So what is the difference is that they're making the language has changed the way the speaking has changed. Why? Because this time is genuine. Last time it was alive. So even in the language, we can see that there is a noticeable difference. And jacobellis anom he sees that in the way they speak okay he sees and the way they speak that they're not speaking in the same way anymore when they came the first time it was all about oh send our brother with us so we'll have a fantastic time. This time is not send our brother with us so we can get food this time is different the way they speaking they say oh, nothing for us next year. Big problem. Unless you can

00:36:21--> 00:36:23

send the brother with us to the change in the language that

00:36:25--> 00:36:29

we're in Allah hula half moon indeed we are people that will protect him.

00:36:30--> 00:36:37

last verse call a hell of an Kumar Li. A min to kumala him in public.

00:36:39--> 00:37:01

Here now jacobellis ROM. Okay, Pamela, he becomes naturally angry. Okay, he becomes angry with that request. He says hello to Kumar Lee. Do you expect me okay to trust you with him? Except in the way that I trusted you with his brother?

00:37:02--> 00:37:12

mill bubble from before? As if you are COVID Islam? Do you think I'm going to do the same thing again? That I did before to trust you with him again? So here, you notice

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

that we have

00:37:20--> 00:37:50

so jacobellis here's Paula, he becomes angry, okay, it says, Do you think I'm really gonna trust you? Like I trusted you with his brother from before? Uh huh. for low Hiram halophila, then he says, but the reality is that Allah is the best of those hafler that protects. So now it seems like he's calmed down. He says it's true. I'm angry with the with what you've just asked me. But the reality is that Allah is the one who protects Yeah, Allah is the best to protect us.

00:37:51--> 00:37:59

Well, who are humble Rashi mean and he is the one who has the most and ultimate urashima from those that can have Rama towards others.

00:38:01--> 00:38:10

The This is where we'll stop in terms of the story. But now reflecting over the story is one one lesson here. Use of it is

00:38:12--> 00:38:23

what he said to the brothers. That Don't you see that I have made full of your measures, and an A hiral munzee lien on the best of hosts,

00:38:24--> 00:38:25

one of the scholars,

00:38:27--> 00:39:12

Allah is even after the Salaam. He said this teaches us that honoring the guests is a prophetic tradition. That prophets This is the way they always work when they had guests come to them to the houses that they would honor them. Yeah, like even a humorous to them. When those angels came to his to visit him. He didn't know they were angels. He thought they were just strangers. But when they came Allah subhanaw taala said for Barry Jaden sameen that he brought them out Angel Semin which is a fat roasted calf. And and that's like the most expensive type of dish you could serve your guests. So even even Islam was like this use value Saddam was like this and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:39:12--> 00:40:00

told us in a hadith I hate that word, man can you mean will be learned he will yo mean him. Fellow creme bifa. Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day meaning that what I'm going to say next is a matter of religion. It's not just something nice for you to do is a religious commandment. What is the commandment to honor your guests to honor your gifts? If you think about that for a moment, okay, the prophets would like this. We've been commanded to be like this with our guests. But you know what, in the times that we live in, especially in in the UK, the British culture is, is you know, people are quite reserved when it comes to you know, British people. They're very

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

reserved is not much, you know, visiting like there is in maybe the indo sub indo Pak sub continent, we will visit each other a lot. You know, I know that, you know, some of my relatives, they the the idea of visiting, you know, for, for example, in the Gujarati community is a big thing. You know, you could have what they call a doubt, nearly every week or every day. I know, one of my friends, he's always complaining that, oh, you know, I want to go to this class, I wanted this, but my mom or dad always say, No, you can't go you go down to us tomorrow.

00:40:32--> 00:40:58

And he goes is a big muscular, because if you don't go, then they say, Why did he come? And why didn't he come home? He doesn't care anymore. Yeah, it's a big deal. Compare that to our culture in the people that have been born and brought up here is very much reserved. Yeah. And the other thing is that not only is it reserved is become kind of unknown, that you know, you invite people around your house, treat them really well. In fact, some people don't even like people come around the house,

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

or call us at the door. And when they do come in, you know, it's like trying to get them as quick as possible. When it comes to serving them, you know, you open your fridge, you go your fridge, juice their head, you got your preservative on the corner, they give you the cheap one, they got a cheap biscuits, so don't give those gifts given those gifts over there.

00:41:20--> 00:41:23

You know, the whole concept is upside down.

00:41:24--> 00:41:33

You know, but hard on the dean told us to honor our guests and honoring the guests. It's not just about giving them really good food.

00:41:34--> 00:41:58

It's about making them feel honored. Yeah, hosting them. And a hydro moon xylene is a good host and useful. It's that I'm just saying I'm the best of people that host. And I read this, I remember this to something that a story that I went to Pakistan, when my family on a on a like a road trip to what they call Marie is like a holiday resort in the mountains.

00:41:59--> 00:42:26

Now on journey to this place, my uncle is with us. He had a friend who actually lived in a village on the way in the mountains. And he said, we're going to stop there for a day. I was young, my brother, Mom and Dad, we all went there. And we go into the village and we we met my uncle's friend, we stray away so that way they live. Okay, very primitive, you know, the very poor people. And the first thing that we thought was, Oh, my God, we're gonna stay here.

00:42:28--> 00:42:33

But what we were amazed with is the way they treated us. They never seen us before.

00:42:34--> 00:42:55

But him his mom and his dad were living there. They told us, firstly, these are our rooms and you're going to be staying in our rooms, we said, Where are you going to be staying. They said, Don't worry about us. And then the night time, we found out that they went to stayed at a neighbor's house. And when they fed us, they fed us patola until we couldn't eat anymore.

00:42:56--> 00:43:27

And we were amazed. Because for us it was really strange here. And what made it even more strange is that they are so poor, you feel bad. Eating all this food, you think it where they can eat, you know, but this is what we have been asked of in our religion. That's the culture America rewards them. But what we have been commanded by the prison system is a lucrative Bible to really host your guest. It's not just about giving them good food.

00:43:28--> 00:43:33

It's about honoring them. So they feel You know what, they actually like me.

00:43:34--> 00:44:08

They want me to be here. It's not a chore for me to come around the house and, you know, small talk and yeah, hurry up and go, No, please. No, they actually make me feel like you know, welcome warm. And so in part of being a good host, is giving good food. Also being part of a good host is entertainment, the guests looking after them, making them feel welcome. Yeah. So anyway, this is a like a small dose that we learned from useful Islam that we should all you know, try and increase in the number of people that we invite around our house,

00:44:09--> 00:44:51

our divided by the house, give them the best foods that we have, not the cheapest ones. And also, it's not just about food, okay, it's about having good conversation with them, making them feel welcome. And honoring them, okay. And if you did this, Allah will reward you, a las panatela which is many, many benefits of doing this. There's many, many benefits of having this type of tradition. you benefit from their company, they benefit from your company, you learn things from each other, and increases the Brotherhood and the sisterhood, okay, in the community, and this all comes together to make a stronger, you know, community as well. So, any This is one one thing that we

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

learned from useful esalaam inshallah, we'll finish this here. So how long have they I should order a lot of stuff to be like
