Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Shafi lamea mursaleen Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Salaam Salaam, Allah Kumar, La Jolla Monica to their brothers and sisters. I welcome This is the continuation of the series. So the use of this is our 20th lesson. And we've got to the part of the story where things are falling into place. There's a plan that is unraveling before our eyes. This is where use of it is today. The brothers are coming to him in Egypt. They've come once already. What did they come for? They came for for food. Okay, they came for food
on that visit useful as Sam said to them, well, one of your brothers who you told me you have is not here. Next year, you said that you had a brother you I want you to bring him along.
He also gave him incentives to bring him along. He also made a threat that if you don't bring him along, for the problem, they don't bother coming back here again. So the challenge now for the brothers was to convince the apple belief system
to let Binyamin the brother go with them the following year. They weren't able to do that according to one view, however, usefullness anom his plan was everything they gave me in exchange for the food, put it back in their luggage. And so after they told Dad, can we ask you for Binyamin to come as next year he
said I'm not gonna do that. Yeah, I'm not going to do that.
But when he saw that the brothers found the merchandise back in their bags once again. He became convinced that perhaps this is actually
any the brothers my son's actually being truthful this time as opposed to the time we use for this exam and so he gives them a piece of advice is okay you got to go Don't enter from one bag from one gate and for many gates we spoke about the wisdom behind that. And he also said well even if you take my advice and adhere to it, who knows it is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala
so now they leave Okay, they leave and they are going back to Egypt now for the second time.
second trip to Egypt
what's interesting is that after this trip they're going to go back to Palestine home again and then they're all going to come all together the third time round so that means there's three trips in this story. three trips the shirt
in the beginning you said Islam shirt is taken the shirt a shirt of usefulness that makes another appearance here what does it make another appearance
oh that's coming there is already another appearance that makes which is when first time around the brothers take your abusive and they say to dad look this is wolf 18
yes has to do with immortalizes when exactly
very good when the shade the shade brings the shirt he said okay look a useful assumption is torn from the on the back. A third time this shirt comes about again which is useless love himself says Look, this is my shirt and give it to my buddies cost over the face of my father. Something else happened three times as well. In the story, three trips,
three appearances of a shirt and three something else
very good three dreams the three dreams reviews Islam dream of the three prisoners dream of the king. Okay, so this is now now
Halima Hakeem is it three times
it comes twice I think.
Okay, find me the three inch on a family tree. So those are the three we know that this is the point of the story where the second trip now they're making back this time we've been you meet with them. Let's recite in Charlotte, these verses they are verse number 69. We'll do verse 69. inshallah, to verse
70 to 79 or 7076 Sharla.

now found down on john
pancholi the mean
okay now this part of the story is very different to the first part, the first part of story is very emotional, very serious. Shocking In fact, this part of the story very different, okay is quite relaxed.
A bit funny
is quite, quite intriguing the way things are gonna pan out in this part of the story. So verse 69, while I'm the hollow Allah used to for our la aha so when they entered upon useable Islam, meaning the brothers Now come back to Egypt once again, they enter into Egypt, and they are now in the presence of use of Islam for the second time. They don't know that they think this is just as is our la Aha, what useful is lambdas is our to his brother, meeting the youngest of them his blood brother Binyamin our means to take someone out of harm's way. Yeah, take someone out of harm's way. So if you can just imagine now they've all entered into the presence of usefulness.
And, you know, as they are sitting about to sit down or about to get comfortable to have a conversation useful Islam instead of just takes Binyamin to one side, okay. And he's gonna say something to what does he say? parlor in me and a hooker? He says in nee, Anna, indeed me. I, I am your brother. So what does he do? He reveals Himself to Binyamin.
This is a very emotional moment. Imagine was the last time he saw when you meet or maybe some said that Binyamin was in fact, born afterwards or low item, but a reunion like this is an emotional time. Now it's interesting that Allah subhanaw taala said that useful Islam didn't just take him to one side, which means to take someone out of harm's way as if Binyamin is normally safe with his brothers here. Why do you think that is because ramba anyone from the other mother that are like that? They didn't like use of Islam, and us and Binyamin, his younger brother. They don't like him either. So they haven't been really good to him either. Yeah, so that's what you said. He
immediately takes him to one side you know
takes him out of the company and then he lets him know what's going on in me indeed me Anna, emphasizing again and ahuka fella Tabitha, this fella Tabitha is so don't deputize Tabitha is comes on route of books books means miserable. Yeah, like Allah says about jahannam bits and mostly what an evil miserable returning place May Allah save us from that. So ferrata is far of suburbia. So now you don't need to worry anymore. Meaning that, you know before living life in Palestine with his brothers, he's been been treated really badly by the brothers. Yeah, he hasn't been treated well, they've been doing bad things to him as well. So now he's in his company. He's told him who he is
told him Look, you don't need to worry anymore. It's like a reunion. And you can just imagine useful Islam older brother. He's got his his arm around his younger brother shoulder brothers maybe started to cry and he goes look for activities don't need to worry anymore. It's gonna be all right. Yeah, Bhima can we I'm alone, about which they have been doing. Now that can have two interpretations. Are they saying you don't need to worry about them anymore? Yeah, maluma they've been doing meaning is going to be okay. Now you don't need to worry. They're not going to be able to harm you anymore. I'm here. Or be my balloon refers to usefully slumped servants, because what's gonna happen now, is is
going to be a whole plan that's going to be put into action. Okay, and that's going to involve like, if you like a staging of events, and the medium is going to be part of it. So when you meet them, I think what's going on here? Because I was putting something inside my bag. Now they're calling us you know, thieves. This is worrying. Usually sound like don't worry about that. Okay. So he's if you read between the lines he's telling him what's going to happen now. Okay, there's a plan in motion.
So for that, who is the man can Oh, yeah, man one. fella has beija has him Jada suppiah
so brothers they all day and as last year, they have the camels loaded up here they have the camels loaded up so they give them they build our give usefulness and under Aziz the commodities Okay, could we have our our shares now so for llama has ob Jasmine, the camels are loaded up. Now they're going to get the extra one Yeah, because the new music as well. Now what happens is either useful Islam himself does this. Or he tells one of his servants jealousy if you're actually afraid to put the supplier supplier comes the route of subpoena. subpoena means to give someone something to drink. Okay, so pm needs to give someone something to drink. So the suppiah is that glass, which
somebody pulls a drink into it for you. Now what type of glass is that? It is a glass where somebody pulls your drink into it's a glass belonging to someone who is rich right? So the glass itself is a valuable gloss. Okay, it's not just any old gloss is the you know
a cast for example. No, no, this is a supplier is one of those you know glasses that rich people have and they don't pull the drink themselves. Somebody else pulls it for them here. Janice is furious he he puts into the Rochelle the bag of his own brother. Yeah, so most probably this is useful Islam doing this himself okay. As things are being loaded up one by one by one by one this Islam gets the supplier and sneakily puts inside the back of his own brother
more than a year to highlight and then the model okay what it means the color is color Who is this color is like the security Okay, the security personnel of Egypt the under the command of users to them
when the caravans are leaving off, the heading back down, okay, the making the departure and then a year to lay this security guy equals out a all caravan is holed up. You know, like when you buy things in the supermarket, and you got tag on and you get out of the supermarket and then they got the doors there with the sensors, you know, starts making that beeping sound right. They don't have them back in those days.
They have been for that. So the Morgan says Hang on a minute. Something's not right yet. Okay. So what is he caught up in a coma sorry. Indeed you all lassa raccoon la Motoki. Truly you are thieves.
Big statement, isn't it? To say you're thieves. Now just imagine if Okay, just imagine what a real thief would do is steal something from supermarket okay.
Now he's making his way out. And as he goes out, Tom has got a tag on there. And the alarm system going off security guard says a teef.
What's the diff going to do? Is there a run for isn't it is going to run. But look what happens next.
Something strange happens which is Paul who Aqaba New Orleans fi mother didn't follow. They all say what a wild meaning whilst they're gonna say this. They don't just know that they are going home. So like he's calling out from behind. They don't just say, Hey, we're talking about what? They turn around fully.
The turnaround fully. And what do they say? They're all say, what did we still hear? Masako una bella de Silva. What exactly we still would they say? Now that dusty dude?
Yeah, what have you guys last? Huh? What have you guys lost? They don't say what do we still What have you guys lost? They sound like a thief Gee, but a thief do that. Who wouldn't do that?
Which means that they have no clue what's going on. They're not worried at all. We can turn around, we can go right back. We can ask them and they don't even say what will you know who stole what they say? What have you lost? Oh, you can't have stole we can't have stolen anything. We also anything. The only possibility is that he might have lost something. Yeah, he might have lost something. Now if you go back one ayah.
There's a few questions that arise. Okay. Which even taymiyah Rahim Allah has extensive kelemen in our statements on and that is in the comb less area porn. They have just been accused of being thieves. Are they thieves? Are they there? Are they demonstrated in the supply? Have they? But they've been accused of stealing, which is not really right now you kind of falsely accuse someone there. Is that right to do that? There's no right to do that. The other thing is we know this is a plan to keep Binyamin in Egypt, right.
Which means that Yusuf alayhi salam, or the plan of use of is not just entailing saying something which is not true, which is in Nakula said upon, but it also entails
taking Binyamin away from jacobellis. No, I mean, how's that gonna affect your Kobani his and my second son is also now lost. Is he going to take it? Well, he's not going to take it well. I mean, that might just even kill him. Yeah, kill him of grief is already grieving of useless now, the third thing, which is not as big as the first two is that there's a nice up, they've taken a covenant with their dad, which is we're definitely going to bring him back in front of Allah. If you said Islam carries on like this, and Binyamin is taken from them. Well, unintentionally, he's gonna make them break the oath. Yeah, make them break the oath. So these are some questions that arise like is it
really right to do this say to someone or something when you know that they haven't done it? What about the implications this will have on his father, etc, etc. We'll come to that inshallah. Let's carry on the story though. So pardue acabado Halima that afternoon so they turn around fully and say to the security okay of Egypt matter definitely weighs exactly that. You've lost the security reply Paulo nuff to do. So well. Malik. We have lost Yeah, do you get this? They didn't say we you have stolen now they say we have lost this word of the Malik translated as a cup of the king.
Now what was the cup cold in the previous ayah?
cigar supplier? The now as a cold?
sore? Yes. Well, and not just any sore this word of the week? Yeah.
So why the change of word?
What does supplier mean? That's our SWOT doesn't well the Word Swag which is referring to a cup is no ordinary cup. Okay, this word they said can be made from gold or silver. So usually synonyms, taken not just any cup. He's taken a very valuable cup. The other thing is this word comes the root of swap swap is an ancient measure. Yeah, what they used to measure things with, you know, like you have a, you have a kg, okay. In those days you have a slot. The swap is like the gold measuring cup, that they measure things out of Egypt. Think about Okay, like every we're suffering from famine. The only people that got food are Egypt. They're very proud of the fact that they are economically
stable and I
If you like have the economic stability in these tough times, is this, this golden cup, which is the measure, meaning we're able to measure our food for all you guys. So, on top of that, who does it belong to?
The King, it belongs to the king. All useless are really taking a big risk here. He's taking the cup of the nation that belongs to the king, and he's put it inside the sack of his own brother. Risk, you know, it just makes you think who is the supply? Okay, it's an expensive cup, but oh my god is a cup of the king. Come on use. Voila, what if this goes wrong? Yeah, it's a cup of the king. So, okay. Wolman jabby. him blueberries, okay.
What happens is the security guy says, Look,
I'm going to give the one who grass is on the other hand, blueberries, a camera load was a reward. Okay, security security guys basically make it even more interesting. Is it? How old are only coming, coming coming?
We've lost something. Okay. And it's something very valuable. Now, I'm not saying who is exactly. I don't know who it is. You guys. But I tell you what, if one of you comes across and the other one, I'll give you a camera load of food. Now remember, in those times money doesn't mean anything because money and people don't need money. They need food for his family. So his gives him a big reward? Yeah. 10 grand if you grass up on your brother. Okay. Can the grass up on anyone the car this day seriously believe that we haven't stolen anything.
So he goes further. He says what he's saying. And I am regarding that reward zalim meaning a guarantee.
Okay, like a guarantee. So what that means is saying look 10 grand, if you grace up on the person who started just coming to me, and don't worry, I guarantee you'll get that 10 grant. Okay, maybe I'm just an old buddy. Right? You might be thinking Oh, security guard. Come on. How much do you get paid? Are you gonna give me 10 grand? He says no, no, don't worry. I'll guarantee that meaning I might not be able to give it to you myself. But I guarantee will come to you. Okay, implicitly What's he saying?
He's saying I can guarantee this for you implicitly was he saying
no, no, no, he's not saying that.
What do you think implicitly this Yes.
Okay, yeah, you saying that look Aziz is going to be Give me the money for this that's fine but this implicitly saying something very different
Oh very good. Masha lots of Article ah
Excellent. So he says our guarantee that you get the money he's actually saying our guarantee is when are you
dead certain is one he I'm not just making this up. It's not even suspicion. I know is one of you Okay, I'm guarantee I can guarantee it and it'll be his aim
call outta la de la cada alum to magic not enough see the fill out now the brothers are getting seriously scared. They're worrying what is going on. They say Paulo turn LA to LA he will la he biller he all means by Allah swear by Allah. This was intended law he had one law he is got an element of shock. Okay. Got a shock to it. Like you know Seriously? Seriously by a law seriously by a law lockdown him to you guys you know for sure truly? You know for sure. Magic nerd in the Philippines. We haven't come here. Okay, to make a facade. Okay, we haven't come here to cause corruption you know we came here last year look at the alum to you know what we allow? We don't like
this. Okay, fill out meaning this earth ie the country of Egypt woman couldn't necessarily thing and there is no way there is no way in hell. Okay. Was that a pain that we are thieves. See? They're very very sure. Just from this few verses, we learn something in Okay, in fact, and that is something called Jada. Jada. Jada comes from jerk. Duran means reward. This is a type of transaction, which is basically you know, like somebody loses a cat. Okay. What do they do? They put notice up, you know, outside on the lamppost look, missing cat. You find it you get 100 pounds, or three love the cat. 1000 pounds. Yeah. This is the type of traffic
Because what's happening is you're saying, I'll give you 1000 pounds if you can do this thing, but how? How long would it take me to find the cat? How difficult? Would you find that? I could find it? Like just walking out there? Pick it up, give me 1000 pound, or I might have to search for it. Yeah, might take me a few days. That's all unknown. Now the thing is, one of the things I presented in Islamic finance is something will harder and harder means uncertainty. Yeah. Like if I say to you, he
10 pounds, whoever's in my pocket
is What do you mean? Nothing? If I'm going to tell you about 10 pounds, it might be something really value by tissue. Yeah, this is these travel transactions are not allowed. Because many scholars say because it leads to Manasa, which means argumentation. So I take it about Thank you very much. And what do I have? To take what I have?
Nothing have anything.
I don't have anything whatsoever. Lucky the 10 pound isn't gonna be happy.
Easy. It's gonna be furious. So this leads to many issues. One of them is argumentation. One of them is, you know, animosity between people. So a lot of transaction is not allowed. Now, this Java type transaction, it's got a quite a big element of other isn't it?
Which is fine, my cat give you 1000 pounds, it might take me a month to find your cat 1000 pounds behind he could earn 2000 pound doing another job. It's up to you. You take it, you leave it? Yeah. And you could even start doing it and leave it it's up to you.
Here are the scholars say this is the type of transaction which this security guard was talking about. And it'd be his aim. I'll give you a hamburger. If you if you come up and tell me who stole the cup. And if you do, you get this much reward might take a long time for them to find out my take a short time. That's all unknown, but the essence of the transaction with the job, the transaction is inside this verse. And it is inside this verse, without any condemnation or loss of power that is praising it, then it kind of shows is permissible. Okay, it shows it for me. So obviously, there's other proofs as well. But based on that ajala type of transaction would be permissible to do yeah,
it wouldn't be hard on according to the majority of scholars, yeah. The, the head of the Hanafi scholars, they disagree. They said no, it needs to be made into any journal. And ijarah type of transaction is more like a business type of deal, which is I'll give you 1000 pounds, you find my cat, and you have a month to this job in. And this is how much you're getting paid for. And even if you don't find it, you might get something as well because you worked. That's an ijarah type of transaction. But as for the Java, if you find that you get something you don't find it you get nothing even if you look for a year.
so anyway, that's one side point. So as the story goes, Carlota Marina could add him to magic now looks a little odd woman couldn't necessarily pin
so they say, look, we haven't taken nothing. You don't know. You know what we like? We're not thieves. Okay.
Now the security forces, they say, submerges, who in quantum care the beam.
So what then is the jazza meaning the punishment in if you are lying,
just imagine you're in that situation is guy you know, the pressure has been turned up slowly, slowly, slowly, like firstly relied on. Why
were these guys talking about but let's go and see anyway.
Hang on a minute. They're telling us if we grow savica hemlo, Barracuda this.
They really think we have stolen it. And now they're saying if you're lying was a punishment. If you're lying was a punishment. Now you're going to be thinking, whoa, this is seriousness getting serious. So now they are in a position where they decide what's the punishment. Now if you're if you're a thief, and you're told what's going to be a punishment
was the thief gonna say
allow me Forgive me. If I have done it, forgive me, isn't it? No one's gonna say yeah, I should go to prison.
But you know what?
The confident they haven't stolen anything. So they say okay.
The punishment should be as far as called who jezza who? woulda Fie rush Li for what?
We think okay, that that is who meaning the punishment for this crime which you're accusing us of? Should be what? That to whoever you find the cup in the sewer or wherever you find it.
Should he should be the punishment? What does that mean? It means that the guy that you find the coupon, he becomes the slave to the one from whom it was stolen. Okay, this is a very unique type of punishment had if you like, and this is taken from the city of jacoba Islam, which is if you caught stealing, then you become enslaved to the one you stole from very unique. Any type of punishment right? What is even more interesting is, according to the Kings law in Egypt, that type of punishment didn't exist. If you caught stealing, what happens to you? Either you are lashed or you're beaten. Okay? There's no such thing as you become a slave to the to the victim of the crime.
But you know what, that's what they said.
They say that whenever you find the one he becomes the slave of the victim. It's quite strange, isn't it that they would say that
you cannot avoid the mean and that they what we just explained. That's how we deal with the wrongdoers meaning back in Palestine where our father lives and we will live that's the way we deal with criminals and if they caught stealing, then that's the that's the way that they are paid. That's the way they are punished.
Okay, further RBL well yet in Kabbalah we are
now happens is this scene takes place where they're all lined up, okay, all 11 brothers are lined up, you can just imagine our full level of the lineup. Okay.
Now, this is how we're going to do things. We're going to search, search has no phone, stolen anything whatsoever that the thing is whose bag is the cup in?
Binyamin is going to look a bit suspicious, you know, the security guy goes free for the bag of Binyamin isn't it?
straightaway you found it
strange isn't it found on his back straightaway you're going to start thinking so what happens for better so he started be aware Yeti him that we are is another word for bag which is a type of bag that people use you know back in ancient times where they would go traveling like sometimes you see some cartoons where someone's traveling in the desert they got a stick and they got like a sec tied to the end of it and they check it over the over the Bank ladder and that's what we are okay so one last puzzle essays is for better be aware yet in Kabbalah we are that the search starts with the others before before the brother before we do mean so is this searching now 11 of the lineup their
first one nothing. Second one nothing. Brother saying we told you we haven't stolen anything until this guy came to come down. stole me if you look he hasn't go Yeah, no, no, he continues next person next where's the next verse? And then Thoma is the Harada moon where he then what happens is he comes to the back of the brother is the Raja Raja from Harare means to take out exit right. It's the Raja for on the Patreon is the founder, which means to seek something istikhara is seeking it out. Trying to make it look as real as possible for his hand in the bag. It's not that it's not that. Hey, what do you know? It's the Hurghada
suspicious, we told you they stole something isn't it? Easy in this story? There's three words of find used already. What are the means to find intentionally that you looked and you found
there was another word for find? And you remember that word? It came up in the story in murottal azeez and yussuf. Who do they find the door?
Number anyone remember this? Yeah, how do they find it What word is use? They find him letter BB.
alpha, alpha. Alpha also means to find difference between alpha and wotja. Anyone remember?
For a chocolate
okay? Very close Sagan. What did that means? You know and you intentionally find alpha means
no, it's very close if you and I'm going to give you some for an effort Mashallah
alpha means to find unknowingly alpha laddle defined as ease at the door. Totally by surprise. You didn't mean to find him here but alpha we found him is the origin
Another word for find the way this word means to. To pretend to find.
Pretend to find amazing energy, the color of Allah subhanaw taala is the holiday any seeking out pretending to find what you know is finds it is tough Roger mill Where is he from the the SEC of his brother.
So now the penny drops. Wow. This means Binyamin stays in Egypt. This means brothers go back to Palestine and the gotta break the Father's heart. But you know, it also means that Father is going to come back to Egypt. A great reunion is going to take place What an amazing plan this was all along whose plan
Huh, Levin says COVID Lika Kedah know the use of that they Kedah na we schemed and plotted Li use
on behalf of useful Islam amazing everyone's thinking Wow, look at uses intelligence smartlace the way he's doing things How does he know? If he does this? This is what's gonna happen. How does this get alika keyed in earlier? This is the way we are plotting on the part of use of an s&m Cornelio the whole feed de Lille many ke la ala Aisha Allah Subhana Allah.
Allah says, Maracana, Leah hula ha, it was impossible for us to take his brother. Haha, according to the Dean of the Malik, according to the Kings laws, there is no way a foreigner would be able to stay in Egypt, according to the law of the king, meaning that if they had stolen, then the punishment would have been beating or lashing and then you would have been told to get lost. Yeah, there's no way that Binyamin could have stayed in the land of no way impossible. In except as Allah, except if Allah wills it, if you take me out. I have my law said this means that there was no way in which Binyamin could have ended up staying in Egypt, except if a lot created another way.
And not only another way, another way that the Egyptians themselves would accept.
Yeah, he needs to stay because they themselves said the punishment is he becomes enslaved.
As if a new law was created in the Dean of the Moloch, in order for this plan to be to be completed in a law number farol de la gente, Manisha
another Pharaoh we raised the Rajat ranks men, Nasha, who whomsoever we wish, even taymiyah Rama la said that the this is talking about how use of Islam's rank in this dunya was increased slowly, slowly, slowly till we get to this point. And unless we do this, to whomsoever we wish, remember back before when we said in the verse what bellava should you know her Kumar Elma? Yeah, can you can Nigel
Martini. So we were told back there that you know, when you said Islam got to a certain age, we gave him a token prophecy, we gave him knowledge gave him so much, but you know what? You can see we do that to any person who shows their son. In the same way, Allah saying, you're all in amazement of useless Salaam and true he has knowledge and rank, but you know what, we put people up in ranks who so ever we wish meaning if you do things like use of live like him, YouTube will be elevated here, not O'Farrell de la gente, Manisha, in particular by giving the person a knowledge. It is through knowledge that useable Islam acquired his elevated rank. Isn't that true?
I mean, like,
the way he comes out of prison, right? How did he manage to come out to prison? interpret the dream? Yeah, isn't it essentially, but how interpreting dreams requires me to not because knowledge.
Now this is coming out to prison. How does he get his case reopened?
He gets his case reopened by sending a very powerful message to the king which is go and question those women hotline at
wanna cut open the hands? Again? knowledge in the way he communicates to the king? Yeah. And the same thing? How does he manage to get his family back to Egypt all together a plan. And a plan is born out of knowledge. Yeah. So Allah is saying that we will raise people in their ranks by giving them knowledge, whomsoever we wish mela makers from those people. But now you're thinking, well, he's got serious knowledge.
And people are there some people so knowledgeable, Mashallah mama says Just a second.
What phone call could lead the minalima on top of every possessor of knowledge, there is I leave someone even more knowledgeable here. Interesting. Allah didn't say, or folk Kula, you know, focus only on Allah said focus on the everyone who possesses knowledge, not someone who is knowledgeable. See, possessing knowledge kind of gives a message of both didn't have it, then they were given it. So didn't have a you had
a lot. Allah is the source of all knowledge. No one has true knowledge. They only given knowledge, zoo and they become possessors of knowledge. But even when they possesses a lot of knowledge, there's someone else out there who knows more than them. I mean, isn't that what we talk in the story of musella when he meets meets, he was at a salon, you know, justifiably believes he's the most knowledgeable person in the world. I mean, he's a prophet of Allah.
But Allah tells him, there is someone more knowledgeable out there, go and seek knowledge from him. Yeah. keeping people in check with humility. They
some three lessons. Okay. They've been Tamia. rockmelon mentions first lesson that we learned from this passage, that Allah will plot on behalf of his slave, who is a believer suffering from oppression, yet trusting in Him by facilitating matters which will allow him to exact vengeance against the oppressor. You see, the brothers have useful Islam, they wronged the victim.
How are those brothers brought before uselessness? How does he get them to come before him? And he basically are made so lowly and embarrassed and subject to His will, if he wants he could kill them? or How did that happen? What a big favor Allah says that
there is a believer.
He's been wronged. But the believer is without kill. He's always trusting in Allah that Allah is going to help him. Yeah. When it comes to that type of person, which could be any one of us, then Allah will create a means by which that oppressor will be brought before you and it is up to you. What do you do with that person?
because even here law says no cannot
feed the numeric useful Islam he wasn't able to keep Binyamin and subsequently cause a reunion to happen in the land of the king according to His laws in sha Allah, except that Allah, He will, meaning Allah created another way. Why? Well, because useful Islam was oppressed.
And secondly, useful Assad was always trusting in Allah that He is going to help him no one else. When that happened, a lot of brought depresses before him. And he was able to if you wanted to exact revenge, but even table from law says you son was too noble to go for revenge, because it was too It was too noble for them. We'll see that later on that is beyond him to do something like this, even though he will have a law says that no scholar would say that if he took revenge, it would have been wrong. According to the laws of kill sauce, okay. It wouldn't have been wrong for him to take revenge if he did. But he said he's too noble to take revenge. The second lesson
the second lesson whoever plots an evil harem plot here Muharram
plot then Allah will make him the subject of another plot Subhana Allah.
He said that if somebody out there tries to plot against another person, okay, and he will plot her on plot, then alone will make that person part of somebody else's plot.
Now, just think about that, who's been plotting against him so far?
Okay, we got the brothers here. Allah Jacobo already said la cosa que la Aquatica for your key do like a Qaeda, they're going to plot against you.
Who's the second person that is trying to plot against you?
A murottal Aziz, who's the third group of people that tried to plot against him?
The women in this world of Medina, three people try to put against her
weapon to the women of Egypt, when they are brought before the king, what did they say? They have to confess. Now, we don't know anything about him evil whatsoever.
were guilty. And he's innocent.
Second Person in Morocco as he's working in backward order, weapons where she comes off towards, after the women, Egypt. And then she says, Yeah, it's true. Our trust is usually more long here. And we're Minnesota clean, and he was the truthful one, all along, here. Third, now, Whose turn is going to come?
The brothers here, now the brothers are going to have their turn where they actually part of somebody else's plot, isn't it? They were plotting, and they end up being part of the plot of somebody else.
And it's a miraculous, this is what ladders, somebody comes up with the evil plot, then they themselves become part of somebody else's plot. last lesson, we stop here.
He said that the believer who places his trust in Allah, if he is plotted against by the creation, then Allah will plot on his behalf and help him in ways that are beyond his control and influence. This is Allah elevated use of Edison arm with a
very similar to the first one, except that even American law here is saying that if there's a belief out there, a real belief,
and he is plotted against, but he puts his trust in Allah, that you know what? People are accusing me of so many things, okay, they're scheming and plotting gives me I didn't do anything. And you know, I can't even claim my name, I can't do it. I don't have the power. I don't have the position to do it. But you know, I'm trusting on you, Allah, that you want to claim my name happens to a lot of people defamed here. without evidence, unable to clear their name. Maybe, for example, I haven't got the money to take the quarter case. Like many of
you are defamed in the papers, unable to afford to get the strongest lawyer out there, you know, to fight the case of defamation. You know what, if they trust in Allah, then they will tell you are harmless as a law will create ways
for them. So
Allah will create ways in which a plot will be unraveled against those people just like he did for usefulness
and those new ways are ways that are beyond the control of the person they wouldn't be able to do that themselves didn't have it in them financially or socially. But you know, what, if they trusted me and they're believers and they've been plotted against an I will plot on their behalf just like I did for use of Al Islam. So this you know, is sending a clear message to every believer out there that if they've been wronged defamed plotted against have to work coolin Allah, then Allah will come to your aid. Allah will help you they surely will finish in Sharla after the next after the slot. We're going to take this interesting muscle which is did use an Islamic accusing of stealing, which
is a candlelight telling a lie. Or why did you say Islam put his father through this? You know, when he knows that this is going to break the heart of his father?
How do we understand this? Was it a lie? Is it right to frame people?
What exactly happened? If it's a marathon? I will explain inshallah we'll take this after the Allah Subhana Allah have the Casa de la la land as a Furukawa to work. What is a criminal offense?
So this is the question here. This verse, verse number 70, where somebody says to the brothers, okay, in a coma sorry. Indeed you are all thieves. Is this a true statement? Or not? Well, from one perspective is not true statement. They're not Steve's only they haven't sold anything. So if that is the case, what then do we say about the one who said this statement? Did he say a lie? Is it right then to say a lie? Or maybe it wasn't a lie?
Even 10 likes face? He said there's basically two opinions regarding inner calmness upon
the first opinion is that it was use of an esalaam who said it but what he intended
was a double meaning in that you are those thieves that stole me once upon a time from my father. Yeah, you are a thief from that perspective. You stole me from my dad. Yeah, your thieves from that perspective, or he told his security to say to them, he told us security, they are thieves. Meaning they stole me from my father. And so they said to them in a criminal record, one opinion.
Second Opinion, is that useful Islam never said that. Security said that. And security said that on their own accord, not under the instruction of useful Islam. Okay, so they're the ones that said it not useable Islam. So what happens in that case? Usually, all he says is the supplier is gone missing.
Yeah, it's gone missing. They then follow up and say in Nakula Sadiq Khan Oh, you Suresh ROM says to them, they are thieves meaning they stole me from my father and they go on and then say in a coma, sorry, intending not what he intended in them being thieves because they stole him, but because they have stolen the supplier. Okay, do you understand? Those are two views.
But he talks about from other perspectives though. He says The thing is, even if we said it's useless, then this double meaning statement, which is called married, married, is something we see often in the Quran. other cases where somebody says something the listener thinks he means something, but he intends something completely different.
And from that perspective is alive but from the other perspective. It's not actually a lie. It's truth.
Yes, what do you say
in the Quran, though?
Is it befitting of me to put the seat back after I take it to give this is the muscle
not enough from Quran
Carla bensalah who could be wrong here? So I brought him a salon when asked who destroyed all our idols? He said the biggest of them destroyed here. Okay, is that really true?
To say that he destroyed
he said ask the big one. Yeah, no, he said Carla Belfast Who?
Now that's true that actually something else Brian will Islam says even before he goes to destroy the idols when dad says to him, come along, let's go to the mela with everyone else. He says in me
sappy indeed I am. I am ill. But
He said in his opinion, I am ill. And that's why I can't go is he?
Is he sick?
He's sick of the shark. And I'm sick of this [???] that you guys are doing in nissa T. That things Oh, is better than a feed into our lives? Oh,
yeah. They, that's one thing. So even if he said that, and he isn't really right to him to say that? Well, we've seen other examples where a double meaning is behind the statement. And the other meaning, which the person intended is truth is honest. Yeah. Therefore, what that person understood, even though they understood differently, it's not a lie. From that perspective, is an interesting story about a boy hanifa Rahim Allah that
He was sitting.
Thinking sitting in Masjid in Kufa, somebody came to ask him a question. And he wanted to be alone. And he just wanted some time to read Quran or something. And he sat in his sitting in one place, and he saw someone coming and he knew that person wants to come and ask some questions. So he stood up and he moved, and he sat somewhere else. Now, this man who had never seen our hardeeville before comes in, he says, Are you ever hanifa?
He says, well, ah, he was just sitting there.
He says, Well, no, he was just sitting there. Yeah. So well, are there any This is something we see in the Quran, as well as something practiced by the righteous people. But for a Muslim, for a known benefit, not based on whim, or not based on cheating people are not based on anything haram
Based on based on a genuine benefit recognized by the Sharia,
they, then he mentions another point, which is, if you now look at analyze the rest of the passage that was was going to come next week,
you can see that you said some continues to use double meaning. Okay, like when the brothers say, you can't take Binyamin from us, in an urban shaken Kabira that he's got a very old feeble father, meaning he's gonna,
he's gonna you know, it's gonna devastate our father, if you keep him here, take one of us instead. What does he say in response?
He says, My other law, you know, so for law, how could I take Illa? Man? Uh huh. filamin, wodgina, matana endo, except that I we take the one on whom we found out things, instead of saying, How can we take except the one who stole
in lemon syrup? I mean, that would be the simple way of saying, isn't it? We can't take somebody else in the place of the guy who stole instead, he said, we can't take somebody else in the place of somebody who we found our things on.
double meaning? Yeah. So you say he's using double meaning then he's using it there. Yeah. Again, for an old master.
Like, so. The other thing he mentioned, now, this is an interesting point. Okay. Which is,
you know, the prophets of Solomon. How do you say Buhari, he said, Lisa,
Allah, the use of the humaneness. He's not a liar, the one meaning the one who says a lie, in order to bring solace between people in order to reconcile between people. So, you know, brothers Fallout, give you give you a real example. In fact,
this happened to me three times one brother comes up to me, they and he does have done in the masjid.
But we are not talking about this machine.
So to be allowed to the machine, and you know, we don't have a set. But I do that on the alarm. And there's another brother who does other than his role. And the thing is, I'm supposed to be doing it. Sometimes he's supposed to be doing sometimes, but he does it more than me now. Okay. And he's, he's always trying to do it. And if I don't come on time, he does it quickly. And in
another case, this is what happened I do is that there is no set one of them. Okay, so somebody comes down. And then another person says, Oh,
okay. So what happens is that the analysis was done 10 minutes before the Salah. So how about the person comes in other than the other person wants to avoid he comes before the other person? And then before that person will do that? So because what's happening? Is this, about hands going back?
Another person comes and leaves the other one does that. Yeah. So anyhow, weapon is about the cons, because basically, is my friend. And you know, this is kind of, I don't like this. He's competing with me to the other one, and he kind of robbing me of being modern, basically. So what should we do?
And we've won a football now over this. Now, I do this typical high rot, yes. They want to compete with doing highs. So therefore, they now it is allowed for me
to say to that Brother,
you know what that other brother, he thought that? You know, you don't really like doing that on that much. And he's careful, he's kind of helping you out. By doing that. And he saw me you didn't really want to do it. So he's coming. And then I go to the other brother. And I say, You know what?
The other brother and he, he loves you so much. And the end? No, seriously, he cares about you so much. But
he feels that maybe, okay, you misunderstood him. And he actually just wants you to do sometimes for him to do sometimes evenly. And he thinks there's a misunderstanding here, but he's too shy to say to you, is that really true? Is this really true? Maybe it's not. But the thing is, when I say this, this one, I say that to that one, immediately, they're gonna think Okay, you know what, it's no big deal is to go talk to him and work things out. And maybe there's nothing to work out. Maybe there's a big misunderstanding in the first place. It's possible to do this. Yeah. And this is a How do you say Buhari? Well, first I mentioned three instances where person is allowed to say these kinds of
lies. But what we've been talking about when I say is, is that it revolves around the muck set. What is the objective behind saying the statement in the first place? in all three cases, which are some highlights
is allowed to number one making soap between people reconciling the pupil number two in times of war, and number three, when a man wants to please his wife, okay, all three have a an objective, which is not to do with self interest to get this, I'm not lying in order that I can acquire some good or I can, you know, get the upper hand argument or blah, blah blah, it's nothing to do with me is to do with the good for others do you see in regards to the first is clear, so I'm not going to get anything out of line any in this case is only so this person and his brother, these two brothers would be able to work things out in the case of war, the benefit of the Muslims, not for my benefit,
or the benefit of the Muslims. And the third case even for any the benefit of the wife. And he is the husband has a duty I need to any I should not be maroof Allah says no Quran to live with them honorably, or hospitably. Here to create a good home environment. And that any sometimes some man can say I love you to his wife, and he loves her. But in that moment in time, he doesn't really feel that love that much. You know, it happens. You don't love the person all the time, on the same level all the time. I love you. And I felt like a failure The first time you got married and the first night? No, maybe not the same. But you need to say I love you. And you know, my love for you is
never any decreased whatsoever.
Why just so the wife becomes happy. Yeah, this is the y becomes happy.
The only is true, you should do this, you should do this. And no one should interpret my words to mean that a person can be bad to his wife and then like to make up No. I said that person has to treat his wife well, and do everything he's supposed to for his wife. And he can make her even more happy by saying things to this effect. Yeah, saying things to this effect. They. So in all three cases, that Mark said is to do not with your own interests, but to do with the interests of others. Okay.
The same thing can be said here in the case of usefulness. You say in the corner, Sally cone. And the law is what the benefit is to bring about a reunion for the whole family. Yeah. And this is one of the ways in which you will happen that are accused them of stealing, they go back home, and then they have to bring that back again, when dad does come back, he finds out as me the whole family is reunited once again. Yeah, this is still taking place. They so
we said other things before? So this is how we understand the statement in nakoma. Sorry, on that, even if he did say it, then there is legitimate grounds to say things to this effect. Okay. In this particular case, most probably he didn't hear most Well, he didn't.
Now, the other interesting thing is, well, even if it's considered a lie, which you are allowed to in this case, that's just about the brothers. What about the Father jacobellis on how is he going to feel when he finds out that Binyamin has also lost now and you said Islam You're the one who's planning it like this. So here it's a matter of him Allah says that the reality is that this isn't useful. Islam's plan that he's made up by himself can barely get kiddin early use of clearly explicitly Allah says cadair leka, Kedah now we are plotting on the on behalf of usefulness now, meaning that Allah is instructing us with Islam do this, this and this, okay. And to be honest, this
is the best way to understand the whole thing. Not just because it's something that unexplainable but because the verse says itself can barely can use. Now interestingly, haven table harmala says that telling us when it's time to do something, which is going to harm his own dad
is kind of like the instruction he gave to a father to harm his own son.
And you will know we're talking about here.
Every man is Rob and his own son, that he's supposed to sacrifice his own son. Now a lot of telling me to harm my own son.
Conversely, a lot of the usefulness of the home is to harm his own father, that's so difficult. And he said this is a very unique test. We're allowed to tell someone to do something, a profit which is wrong here, which is wrong.
Because they are going to have to overcome the natural, you know, fear, anxiety, you know, in doing something which is wrong.
Because no Allah wants me to do it. And that he said is a level of empty law that is only given to the elite in order to complete their rank before Allah and earn their rewards. Without this, they wouldn't have earned such a great reward. So this is the way we tend to experience it who said that Allah ordered us for this time to do whatever he did. And it included doing something which harm his own father, which is very much like Ibrahim al Islam was ordered to harm his own son in order for them to achieve a elite rank before him. subhana wa Tada.
Okay, shall we finish here? Somehow Nicola, Nicola illuminants Furukawa to willeke
