Brothers and sisters, this is the 23rd lesson in the fear of sole use of RAM. And the see we've got two is as follows jacobellis ROM has just reached breaking point when he's found out the news of his second son Binyamin is also the eldest of them being left stranded in a foreign land Egypt and Israel is reached breaking point because hey are at this point Allah tells us that he complains to him. Yeah. And he says to Allah in a school bethey why Hosni in a law, that indeed my birth, which is grief that is spread throughout all of my body, as well as the new grief regarding my second son is something I want to complain to you about now. And that is actually a dog that he was making to
Allah subhanaw taala and we know it's a dog because the, the sons when they see dad in that state, won't bail, but I know when his eyes have turned white, meaning he's become blind or partially sighted, they amazed they see what's going on you you're gonna kill yourself with grief. Don't do this. Don't don't don't do this to yourself. And then he says, color in school Murthy was neat Allah is saying you think I'm just complaining and whining? I'm not. I'm doing this to Allah as if to say I'm making the art to Allah. And then he says, well, lm amin, Allah him Allah to Allah wanna know something from Allah that you don't meaning, even though I don't have a use for a Salaam is Allah
showed me through him that dream, which I know is a true dream. And I know he's still alive. Yeah, but it's killing me not knowing where he is. And you know how he is. So I'm making the art to Allah, which is quite amazing, because he just is in such a state of total grief yet he hasn't lost hope in Allah. In fact, he's quite positive because when he complains, he says, perhaps Allah will bring them all back to me. Well, the interesting thing is we forgot is that
he's been told that Binyamin is left stranded in Egypt. Right? But he says to Allah, yeah, yeah. SFR Allah usofa. He says, oh, Allah, my sorrow
over use of Islam, but we haven't told you about useless No, no, but this situation reminds me about what happened before useful Islam. So if you're looking at it from the sons perspective, they just told that been your means been taken hostage, if you like, and you're turning around talking about use of
in that is a lesson that the house is the one who envies he never achieved his goal. He never the one thing they wanted is Dad, please give us your attention, undivided attention. And, you know, don't pay much attention to that one. And they went ahead and three minute Well, in order to try and get that objective of all of these years, they failed, is still totally attached to his youngest, then son useless enough. So the house never achieved his objective.
Now the next part is dad, quite strangely. tells the sons go back to Egypt and bring back all of them. Yeah, bring back all of them. We're going to ask a question, which is how comes now jacobellis along tells you sons go and find when you mean and use of and bring them back? Whereas before in the beginning when they said to dad, the wolf or the the wolf made use of he never said no, no. Go back and find him. Yeah, so we're going to ask that question How comes in this scenario? He tells him No, go back.
So the verse that we are covering today in Sharla, verse number 87 through 292 channel. Let's read these verses are rubella Humana, Shea banyuwangi Bismillah Hiroshima muromachi. Yeah, Benny, Habu Fattah has Sumi
e wala day
in a row in
Yo hella xizhou mess.
Boo wandjina ba ba ba

Okay, it's quite amazing. Paula This is the moment that useful is that um,
you know, declares to the brothers who he really is up until now they think is Aziz. And this is what the reunion begins his will. Now jacobellis he's just been told that bad news. And after grieving over that news and making the art to Allah, he bounces right back is full of hope again. And he tells them, yeah, then he had Habu for the hustlers, who me used to fall asleep. Oh, my dear children. It's quite interesting that he's speaking to them with affection here. He spoke to us born a year. Yeah, in the beginning, my dear child in the same Kalamata. So he'll be speaking with affection, saying to his children now who haven't been very good children? Yeah, Benny. Yeah. And
this is another affectionate way of saying not sons, but dear sons, my sons.
Is Habu go, meeting go to Egypt back again. This is going to be the third time they're going to Egypt the third trip to Egypt.
interest you mentioned this before three trips in the story. Three times a commis. makes an appearance and three, three dreams as well. Yeah. So he says go back to Egypt. And then further has Sumi us with our athlete, and I want you to do the assessor. The assessor means to go and find out. But it's got another very interesting meaning. It comes from the root of this house, your house means your senses, your senses, your seeing your hearing, your mind has those who means to use all of your senses, to search out something to go and find something
that has a different from the Justice which means to spy. Yeah, it's different because spy you, you know, you use your mind and you plan and you're very careful, but you do things undercover. Yeah, the house is not like this. You're quite open about it, but he's telling them I want you to use all of your abilities to go and find him. Okay, who don't want you to find first of all useful Islam so problem he's still believes fully that he's alive. And he's somewhere out there. In fact, now he believes in Egypt. So all these stories that are coming back to him even though he can't make sense of them something in his heart is telling him usage there. So he tells you sons go back and go and
find uses now one of the sons gonna think that you're crazy come on with or even the word A long time ago, he's dead. Yeah.
But you know, they listen to him for the hustlers who make use of what he and his brother when you mean it doesn't actually say and the third one is as good as he forgot about that one. Don't worry about that big one. Okay, just find these two for me. But there has to be useful where he was assuming Russia and don't have this year is in the role of Allah. Yeah. Is to despair. Yeah, we spoke about there's a difference between yessuh in and a state as a state as a means to nearly lose all hope. Yeah. Is a means
Yes, to lose complete hope. So which one does he say to his sons don't do with Allah
don't lose complete open Allah. He is saying that I know you have lost hope somewhat I can tell, you know, you're, you're dragging your feet, you're thinking why is that and he has to go back is pointless but there is a law there is a law and the role of Allah which means Mercy of Allah.
Is means more than mercy. In fact, because Roe comes from Russia, so right. So what is what's the word rush being used instead of Russia? It's being used because they're in a situation which is difficult, stricken challenging here is getting them down. You know, when you're down, your chest feels constricted, right? Feels like are tough. So the row the row is feeling constricted here. And thorough wash means to lift that restriction. As if he's saying I know you're feeling down and restricted and constricted. But Allah is the one who can remove them. You can do thorough of that. So don't give up hope in that happening to you from Allah. Yeah, meaning Allah will make away. Don't
ever lose hope in Allah subhanaw taala. Yeah. And then he goes further, to state a fact that in know who lay assumere Roshi in the local coffee room, that no one displays meaning completely, from this Mercy of Allah, except Who?
A foolish person,
a depressed person.
No, except a nation that is Kufa except people that are disbelievers is really making it clear to his children that look,
jokes aside, you can have ups and downs in your life, you can be anxious sometimes and you don't have much hope in your life at that moment in time, but if you ever lose complete hope in Allah, and that is a matter of disbelief. Children, remember that? Okay? So this is a point in your life where you are losing hope, but don't go to that level where you've lost complete hope in a lot because if you do, then you are actually disbelievers. Now, how Cipolla How does having yet is losing completed hoping Allah
makes someone a disbeliever?
Or more accurately, how is an act of Cooper to lose hope in Allah?
How? How is that go for exactly?
Who can answer this question?
Okay, so you said because you're limiting a lot of attributes. In what sense you're saying that what you're limiting will actually be a limiting.
Okay, unless power everything.
So indirectly, you're saying that this situation will never get better for me, it's never gonna happen. So you're saying indirectly that a luck doesn't have the ability of stuff will not do that?
Good, good answer. Yeah, very good.
You deserve to know.
This is a personal favorite of mine.
One answer within the cornea.
stop believing in the decree of Allah. Like, you may believe that this is the decree of Allah that for example, in the case useful Islam is never going to come back.
Okay, so what you're saying is that, if you say,
like, atheists do, like, there's no God, because if there was a god, there would be so much oppression in the world, right? Is that what they say? That if there was a god, there wouldn't be all of this war and injustice in the world. So in a way, hello, saying that? Well, if you go down that road, then what you've done is that you said that Allah
or Allah's mercy cannot reach this particular situation.
By Allah said his mercy. Yeah, he was he had Kula say, My Mercy encompasses everything. And I am a hammer regime and I'm the Most Merciful of those that can show mercy but you're saying no, but in this situation, Allah, mercy can't reach me. So you denying the attribute of His mercy, which is similar to what the brother said there. Yeah, so the power and mercy good, anything different.
Any other reason why it would be considered an act of disbelief? I mean, that's a big thing.
You're giving up an unlockable
Do you mean by that? Interesting.
So you're saying that the human emotion of hoping in something in difficult times, it's, it's a natural feeling. And you can feel it either towards a law or something else
is always saying
Okay, very good. So, we're saying here that look hoping in something, and not just any hope, like, you know, I hope that the projector is still working today. I mean, like a proper deep level hope, you know, like the datatype of hope. If someone doesn't have that in Allah
then they're still having in something else might have in themselves, but I really hope in my ability to make this situation change. I hope myself, you know, you heard this, I really got hope for myself, I can do this. It's down to me.
And I mean, it goes to that level. And that's cool. Because that's type of Hope it should be shown to none but Allah. Right. Okay. Well, sure. Very good.
Okay, so let's see, if monopoly urashima law seventh century scholar, or is the sixth century scholar sorry, said either because it entails belying in his rubia or showing ignorance regarding his attributes. Yeah. So I think this is basically what we said we showed, is showing ignorance towards is actually of mercy or is power. And it's also can be a form of showing, belying his rubia that Allah, Allah has existence as a creator.
You're kind of disregarding Allah. By placing your feelings are very bad that you should have towards Allah in other than Allah.
Or maybe like atheists do. This disbelieving Hello together. Yeah. Okay. Very good. Now,
we just want to look at this once once more about jacobellis because you know, in this story, what we've seen is Yahoo giving good advice, isn't it? He gave really good advice to his son usefulness to them. In the beginning, he said ladipo Sayaka Allah Aquatica for Yaki du Lac Ikeda. He said to us right at the beginning, listen, this fantastic dream, don't tell it to your brothers. If you do, they're going to plot and scheme against you. And remember shaytan he is to man, a clear open enemy, we're going to see how that advice impact his use of now, after all these years. Then he gives another piece of advice to his sons was the advice he gives to his sons when he sends them off to go
to Egypt. Second time round. With Binyamin, what do you say?
Yes, he says, loaded Holloman baby wash it, don't go into Egypt from one checkpoint or one gate, spread out and go for different gates, okay. But even though this is one way of avoiding potential harm, at the end of the day is up to Allah, he could decide that this doesn't help you whatsoever. But despite that have true reliance on Allah, taking the means and hoping and him trusting in Him. That was another very beautiful piece of advice. Third time now we're hearing another piece of advice from jacoba Islam. And again, a very important one. Children look, you go through bad times your life ladder, assuming rohilla don't ever give up on the hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa
Taala. So we're currently being shown that yaku is a great father figure. And you should look at him in this light. He's an amazing father figure and if you want to learn tips about how to be a great father, you know, study the biography of yaku, Vanessa.
Now let's move on.
What's happening is not moving.
Okay, so now the scene cuts to where the brothers have actually left Egypt, have left Patterson rather and arrived once again at Egypt for the third time for the hawala he called you allowances. So once once, once again, they enter into Egypt, and they enter into the if you like, the maybe the Palace of useful Islam, or wherever he was, and upon he once again and they begin to have a little conversation with him. They address him the Aziz. Oh, Aziz, here, the speaking up to him recognizing his position, still don't know who he is, miss. And then as
they say the following things, they're making a case. He okay. They're making the case to plead for something. It's very interesting how they make the case. You want something from someone? You can ask many ways you want some money from someone you say, bro, listen, send me 100 pound please. Things aren't too good for me right now.
Maybe I'll give it to you. Yeah, but if you say a few Listen, can I have any of your time? things really have been good for me recently. I last got divorced, bro. That was really bad. And my job's not looking to secure
Whoa, would you mind give me 100 pounds please?
Be more persuasive right bit more persuasive. When I look at the way they make the case to usefulness now, they say Miss Anna touched us, while Elena as well as our family do
harm meeting us, all of us as well as back home, if you could see back home in Palestine, all of our family right now is suffering. With suffering, we are in a bad situation. On top of that, what Gina BB law team was jacked. On top of that we've come as you can see, okay, when are we supposed to come with good quality Billa commodity to exchange for food, as you have asked us, but this time round that commodity is magette magette means very low value stuff. Yeah, value low value stuff is not any good. So they say look, we're in a bad situation, you can have a look at the stuff that we boys want to exchange. I mean, it's really embarrassing. If you look at these things are falling apart, but
it's all we got. Yeah, well Gina, be below it was jet in Philadelphia K. So please, for ofI. So please fill up the measure for us. Meaning as you did last in the year before, please, you know, help us out. And on top of that, what the solder carlina. And also on top of that give us some subtle code. That can mean a number of things. It can mean they saying can we have more than what you normally give? Or can we have backup rather than you mean? Yeah, so they come to make a deal. No Deal rather a plea, but they're sort of piling up. And then on top of that they say in the law, you're dizzy matassa detain and you know as is that Allah, it gives to the water something, you
know. So please give to us in the making this do the word how to use motor song, which means someone who gives to the car. But there's another word very similar, which is most sadistic massage. The difference between the two is that the second one must suck dick as an extra shut down.
Most slide deck has two shutters on the side, as well as most slide deck on the dial as well. We're on the second one moto sodic, which is one mentioned, there's only one shudder whenever you find is an extra shed that it gives the meaning of more. Okay, or abundance. So they never said in a lie. Most of the 18 Allah rewards those that give a lot. They just said in a law. Most of the time law rewards those that give even if it's a little bit as if to say we're just asking for a little bit. No asking for a law. Please help us out.
So here there's one lesson that a lot of Scott has mentioned, which is that there is a permissibility in making this type of plea to someone. And it doesn't go against the walker linen law. And it doesn't count as begging either. You may think that they groveling to you as is. But the scholar said it is permissible to do this. If you are actually in this situation where you've got literally nothing. You need food, you need shelter, you can go to someone and say listen, I'm in a bad way, can you help me out? And doing that doesn't mean you're less of a believer. It doesn't mean you're less of a believer. Of course, there's the inside element of it too. If you feel like the
only hope I have now is that chap over there? Or that Bravo then oh, no, that's a problem. But if it's like, you know, Allah has put me in the situation. And Allah will help me I just need to take the mean. So let me go and ask this person over here. If you did that, like they did, then you're not considered to be any less of a believer.
Okay. Now, it also teaches us how to ask as well you know,
and patent law. If you look at the way that we make dua to Allah like unicyclist, when Yunus and Islam made to Allah, in the, you know, in the in the belly of the whale, what did he say? He wants to say, Allah say me, right?
Allah Please take me out of the will. Does he say that? What did he say?
La La Land subhanak. In the condominium it mean nothing in the statement is a request from Allah to save him from dying inside as well. Nothing. In fact, the stars of La ilaha landt declaration of faith, there is no one worthy of worship except you. And then Subhana glory Beatty, who you have no imperfections whatsoever I am declaring that
but the thing is, come to me with a violin when I was have those that done wrong.
It's just that his case was always making
To a law and that's upon low is enough to answer his door. And Allah saved him. And it's the way he made the door. And obviously the heart behind it, which was heard and appreciated by Allah subhanaw taala. But the point is that the way he asked is to show his own vulnerability and incapacity before Allah, I am in total need of you Allah and I wouldn't turn to anyone except you because you're the only one worthy of feeling this way towards and I declare that you are free from imperfections. That's why I believe totally.
And you know my situation better than myself. I'm here because of my own doing in the economy the violin me. Yeah, I was of those that did wrong. As viola, any when someone comes to a law like this, believe me on my response, believe me, someone totally breaks down for Allah. He feels like,
I'm nothing. I need your money. And I need you in a way that I couldn't possibly need anything else. You don't even have to say what you need. Allah knows. He just wants to see you come to him with the right etiquette. the right attitude, the right state of mind, and heart.
So this is vanilla, the moment of where the penny drops for the brothers. Yeah, this is that, you know, epic moment, if you like with Paula, after all of this. Now the plan is come to the end and useful Islam is going to reveal his true identity. So they they said to him, Look, please help us give us the car, we're in a really bad situation. All they go on their mind is getting some food to take care of themselves and their families. They haven't even asked about use of
Have you ever noticed well.
But now useful, as long as if he hasn't even heard the request. He's just seen the situation, which is that they are being genuine now. They are desperate now. And I can see signs of change in them. Yeah. What do you say called halali. To marathon to be used to flower? He said to them help him to do you know, what you did to use? and his brother? When you were in a state of ignorance, just imagine what they would have felt like when hearing that. They've got no idea this is useful.
Now he's saying, and what did you guys used to do with the use of back in the day?
See talking about use of start looking it over?
You got to be kidding me?
Oh, my God. And last year, we lied as it is a thief. And oh my god, we three we know well before lifting for dead. Hang on a minute. He's been treating us so well. He's given us so many things. What is going on here.
And so Paula is exactly the way Allah described it in the beginning, where he inspired us for Islam when he was in the bottom of that well, what led to not be unknown, the Emory mhada issue, there will come a time when you will inform them what they did. And they won't have a clue whatsoever. This is the actualization of that. That promise that law made use of unbelievable the way the promise comes through.
Because they're going to say what is he really you. But before we get to that look at the way you submit a sum tells them off is amazing. But he's in a position of total power, and then a position of total weakness, isn't it? He could have done whatever he wants. It could have taken revenge, could have killed them could do whatever he wants.
But he tells them off in a very noble way. He says all hell he asked a question. He's not asking a question. To get an answer. He's asking a question of reprimand Toby, to tell them off. You don't like sometimes. You know you haven't been a good boy. Even bunking of school. Okay, and the mom finds out.
And then mom says I better come sit down over here and talk to you. She's already got a letter in her hand from the school so you know what's going on? He says Mehta Tell me Where were you last week?
No, no, no. Thursday, Wednesday.
Where were you on Wednesday?
Yeah, when you were supposed to be in school. And at that point, the sun is feeling like oh my god.
This is gonna go really bad.
This is terrible. Yeah. This is the same type of questioning. Carla has to do you know what you did to use of and his brother?
It could be like a rhetorical question, but it's not even a question.
When a question is actually just to make you feel, put you in your place type of question. That's what it is put you in your place type of question. There's no answer to that. Yeah. But when he does say that, you can bet
you can bet yourself that they really feel in putting their place. Oh, my God, this is useless is actually him. Now, interestingly, he says, Do you know what you did to us? And he and his brother?
Like he's saying, I know he did to me.
And also he did to my brother as well. Because you know, when after you dumped me in there, well, you treat the my brother, my brother. Binyamin very badly for these years.
He's in an effort to, by the way. Yeah, that's right. He's there because he knows who I am. So but he's kind of saying more of a humble way as though it's not just about me. It's about my brother to you know, how could you do that? So now, he's told them off, is put them in their place. The second part of the of the statement is more softer.
He could have said, Do you know what you did to us? He and his brother full stop for the visit. But he qualifies that he says if anthem j loon is meanie when
in the past when you guys were fooling around, ignorant. Yeah, you never knew I'll pass him. He says, you know, back in the day when you're younger, you know, when you have to treat a brother this soft, isn't it? Is like is already kind of telling them. We're gonna take this. He's not gonna look, I'm not going to kill you. I'm not going to imprison you. I'm not going to embarrass you. I kind of going to make an excuse for you. If you don't, you know, you will jehlen back in the day. And as people enjoy Hillier they do bad things, good and bad things as well. Yeah. It's quite amazing. The way he tells them off, because, you know, when, usually when someone's in a position to tell someone
off badly, they do it badly, isn't it? They read stuff.
They take them to town, right? Verse upon law, the objective behind telling of somebody, like your children, for example, is not to embarrass them.
Is it? What's the objective behind telling of your children to do something bad?
What do you what do you mean, teach him a lesson though?
to correct them? Yes. So the objective is to
Okay, to make sure they don't do it again.
Yeah, this is the reason why we tell someone off. If that is the objective, which is essentially to reform a person then,
you know, you can decide what approach you take. Sometimes approach may need to be harsh. Sometimes it can be soft. Because if the real essence of telling someone off is the objective of reforming them, then it can change from place to place situation to situation right. Here we're being taught that you can take you should have a combination of
if you like harshness as well as softness in telling someone off. Yeah, the first part is harsh. Second part is soft. Look at the odor. Which one came first, the soft part or the hotspot?
aspect? Why do you think that is that he decided first to say?
Yeah, you know, back in the days you guys were Joe Hill. But tell me why did you do that to us and his brother
the other way around? Why did you do that to us when his brother you know back in the day when you enjoy him?
What do you think he said the harsh bit first and then the software second?
He's given them an excuse and is sometimes Yeah, what you say last a stick in your mind the most. With more than that. If you look at in the context of telling someone off, you know, you combination between being harsh as well as being soft, and this odor harsher than soft? Why? What do you think?
but what why do you think that he's, you know, saying look, I was terrible he did to me, you know, back in the day, but you know, you were a bit shy back then as well. Instead of saying the other way around.
He could feel sorry for them. Yeah, that's true. What else? What do you think?
Good. Very good. You're killing the hope and what's the person going to feel like towards you?
I'm sure you got
Oh, very good, very good martial arts of Article law. Just gonna have a bad effect on them. Isn't it fun?
So, it's gonna,
it's gonna make you feel a bit bitter, right? You ever see parents do that to the children that tell them of in public sometimes.
And the way they tell them of like snakes the child who bitter toward Mom or Dad, you know, there's so many ways of telling your child for example,
can you can you turn the TV off now please? Okay, you can say turn it over right now.
Put that right in the middle of the hallway to the adverts out right now.
Bravo. How does he know?
A lot of other approaches? Listen,
in five minutes. So when you turn it off? All right, five minutes. Okay.
Is it easier for the son to say that in five minutes, or is cool, you know, five minutes are not enough. No problem.
Right now, by now, that what that does come out to five minutes and say Is it enough? Now, it can be a bit easy, isn't it.
And the main thing is not that it's easier, but the child doesn't feel bitter towards you. Yeah, bitter feelings. They create bad relations, right? They break down a relationship between two people bitterness. So you want to tell someone off, you don't want to you want positive things to come out of it. Number one is that you want to reform them change and make sure they don't do again, like you said to teach them a lesson. And also you don't want them to bitter towards you. You want there to be, you know, a sort of a reconciliation between you and that person. You don't want to put a wedge between you and that person that you have. So this is what we're learning from useless now mister
how to tell someone off have a combination between having harshness and softness, and have also the idea in the mind that the objective is not to humiliate or embarrass someone is to try and teach them a lesson to help them become a better person.
So now that he's told them, he's basically revealed his identity, they are totally in shock. They see it all in under use of just look at how much emphasis there is in this statement. They could have said Paulo and the use of isn't they could have said are you use? But I didn't say that I said call in. I indeed you Lamb of Tokyo again. And the use of truly is a you use of
a very thing, isn't it? There's so much emphasis there like is like the jaws dropping down. I just can't believe in luck. Until use. Is it really you? Can't believe what do you say Paula?
And use for?
Me, it's me. I am Yusuf. And this is my and this is my brother. So hon Allah amazing. This is the moment in after all these years that he finally is speaking to his brothers as a brother once again. And the first thing you say is yes, it is me. But they asked about him. He says it is me and this is my brother. Do they already know this is brother?
Do they already know when you mean is usable? they already do. So what's the extra benefit in him saying yes, he and this has been you mean as well? They already know that his brother
Okay, he doesn't want to be selfish. You want to include his brother? Like, would you mean like if he's gonna if he didn't say this is my brother? Then how would that be selfish?
He loves Bravo. Yeah. And what is he also wanted to say to them that you've been bad to me
shouldn't have abandoned him. Yeah, he wants to say that. Look, I know you're thinking with Raven. Oh, well, we left him for dead. We call him a thief. Yeah, me and by the way, this one is Oh, yeah. Very good. Masha Allah of the
it's in order to take the limelight off himself and to put it and to share it with his brother as if to say, Look, I'm not it's just about me. Okay. You've been bad to myself, as well as to my brother Ben. You mean to both of us.
The other thing is,
even if they actually mentioned this, when he's saying
For another perspective completely, they saying is it you really you use it? And use was standing there and saying, Yes, me. And this my brother as if to say, look how Allah has brought us back together. Look, we my brother, and you guys. And that's why this is the Magnum la Wiley na. And that is how Allah has favored us us could mean both of us here, or it could mean all of us as well, because they have been favored now, because Allah is guiding them, reforming them. They feel guilty about what they did. They change people, as well as useful Islam. He's the one who's been favored the most marvelous pinata, or you could cut them out of the picture. Because they are the man on
Long Island in his use of now teaching them a lesson, using the situation, opportunistically to teach them a lesson. This is teaching skills, teaching skills, because they asked one question, right? What was the question?
Or use? He said, yeah, that's me.
What's your point? You didn't get it already.
But now he is going to teach them a lesson now. He's going to use this opportunity to teach them a real life lesson. First of all, you're looking at me you're thinking, oh my god, you're the Aziz of Egypt. You will ever go servants. Wow, amazing.
From where you were to where you are now? Just a second. But the Manila Marlena, Allah is the one who favored us. Me. Yeah, let's get that. Firstly, look at that first. That is not about you know, thinking that all these things I made myself a millionaire you know, self made millionaire, you know, that had this I'm a self made billionaire, a billionaire.
Allah gave it to me, okay. Allah is a source of benefit. This is a, you know, difference between a, an Islamic worldview and a secular worldview, a person who lives in a secular worldview, even if he's a Muslim. He sees that what he has in his life, the possessions. I own those things. I got those things, you know, they from my hard earned money. No, he, Allah bless you with them. Okay, but the men de la arlena so he's saying let me put things in perspective. Allah is the one who favored me.
Now you're thinking why did Allah favor you? There's something special about you is because of your good looks, maybe what is exactly what you tell us. Okay, let me tell you why. Two essential components came together, which allowed me to become the recipient of a laws money favor, and that's why I am where I am now. In Nashua says now is giving the reasoning behind wildlands David him in the who may yet who is bill for in the law law you'll be your general Marcin if no, indeed the one who has these two things. Who yet Ducky who has taqwa and who was sober, then that person, Allah is ready to give him anything he wants. In this world and the Hereafter, whatever he wants, you will
come to him as long as he is a person who has taqwa and suffer.
So if you just look at useful Islam, what incidences in his life? Has he shown top one and what incidences in his life has he shown Southern.
Regarding taqwa, what incidents Can you say stands out? Well, he had serious stuff when the situation is
very good. The part of incident about him realizes the very, you know, this woman, crazy woman who was infatuated with him, she tried it on him. He said, Now even though I'm a slave in your palace, it's not gonna happen. And he ran a moment of truth taqwa. refraining from doing something that allowed become angry with taqwa I had as one crucial thing in the home, a turkey, Wales. And there's another thing as though it's not just awkward, it's about somebody as well. So what if you know what portion of his life did he have a lot of suffering at the back there rather than in prison, when he was in prison, unjustly convicted of something that he didn't do? stayed in there for so many years.
We don't even know the number of years Allah said, I don't even want to tell you the number of years but it was a long time. The main thing is look at what he's done in prison.
He gave that out to prisoners. Here. He gave out one prison meaning
he wasn't fazed by the fact that he's stuck in prison. He continued to persevere soldier on being a true believer. Even in that state. He had some really nasty
Yeah. So these are some of the incidences that clearly show that he had taqwa and suffer. And he's saying these two ingredients came together. And when they do, then you become a machine, you become a person of sand. And the thing is a law, he never puts to waste the reward of a Morrison. Never. And that's why you see, I'm living like this now. And I position now and I'm able to help people now, because of these two crucial ingredients. Now, if you look at the story of yaku in isolation to everybody else's story,
he's also had a lot of sub array
isn't who was here sub Ruth.
Was he shown last year?
From the beginning? Yeah, when you know, when useful, Islam is basically kidnapped from him. He says for sub Orangeville are gonna have a beautiful patience. And again, if you look at his life now, you know, very soon he's going to be reunited with his whole his family, and the family is gonna be reconciled and now they're gonna be living in Egypt, you know, the most wealthiest places in the world. So he's as sober as well as taqwa.
Where's he had tocado? We could you say, you know, he's refrained from doing something that will end the Angola.
What can you say that you know, he had taqwa exams? If it is yes.
Our son Idris, our son's martial arts, American law, the purple one.
So favorite for everyone, isn't it? Yeah.
This Villa Jacobo a Salaam he was in bits. And he was also angry as children as well. Second time round. They, you know, lost a son of his for what the law said regardless, he was conveying meaning holding back on his anger and not expressing it in a way that is haram in a way that Allah doesn't like. So he had taqwa regarding his emotions in order to burst down anger. Now, I want to add something
I said very good that he didn't complain to others. He said, I'm gonna have a salad which is Jamil and submerge me means I'm not gonna go around. whining and moaning to other people about my problems. Yeah, very good. So he had duck wine, that scenario as a combination of duck one server, to be honest. Okay. Now, this is the last verse or second last verse, okay.
Okay, so now that he has told his brothers, the secret ingredients behind having success in this life, as well as the next,
they then now feel seriously guilty about everything. And they want to say sorry, how did they say sorry to use for this, um, they say, Paul, tomorrow, by Allah, again, not will lie to lie, he has an element of amazement to our job. As a marshal, he said, lapada truly, without a shadow of a doubt, tharaka, long arlena Allah has favored you above us, as if they're saying we're nothing compared to you, in every way, you know, you're far better than us. Allah has Indeed, indeed an ethos to you above us. And that's, he thought of now she said means to favor by way of giving something to someone that he hasn't given to others, has given you so much more than he has given us, we can
clearly see that. And you know, what, we're incunabula Hartley in. And indeed, we were clearly Lamb of Toki clearly in wrong.
So basically, like, confessing and admitting their guilt before useful Islam.
What's amazing is this is the third group of people admitting the guilt to usefulness now isn't a third. First is this word of Medina, they say to, to the medic, you know,
we don't know anything wrong about him whatsoever. That guy can't fault him. Then
he says, Yeah, it's true. I tried it on him. He didn't try on me. And he was on the side the pain. Now the third group of people that voted against him are now coming back to say, confession time, you know, you always the good one, we were always the bad ones. So Palau, Allah brings things around in this way.
Now, the the interesting lesson that we learn is that if this is the status, if this is the statement of the brothers, is a good thing to say right? to admit your fault, to come clean to put up your hand and say I was wrong.
This is the end of the story. So Allah is showing us that the beginning of the story or the
The story was bad, evil doc. Now to the end of this story, their lives have changed. They become different people better people reformed, changed. So sad the Rahim Allah says here Allah is showing us that what matters the most is the endings, the endings, the conclusions, the conclusion of your life is what matters the most, not the beginning, not even the middle, but the ending. Now, you may say, like, is that like luck? You know, someone lands a good ending, someone's just reading Quran happens, that Angel of Death comes at that moment in time, but before that guy was very messed up, like, how does that work? No, this is the justice of Allah. The reality is that you may perceive
that person to be off the rails, maybe he was, but that person he was struggling trying to change himself, trying struggling for Allah sake, all his life, he struggled for love's sake. And Allah saw that struggle.
Allah witnessed that struggle, and out of His justice, he made what was inside that person have turned to goodness, come out at the end, right at the end, because that's what matters the most. It's not that it was never there. The person that wanted nothing will, will have to do with Allah and Allah just favorite him because I like him. No, person you may have seen differently I saw inside his heart that he was truly trying and struggling, he did things that you never saw, and for sure he was struggling inside. And that is why in the end, you know, I
I brought it out to them right at the end. And the and the opposite is true as well. person may seem like a decent person praying, going to the masjid, even given talks. But internally, he's got some ulterior motives allow will bring them out at the end here and that is justice. This is justice.
Okay, so the ending is what counts the last verse now.
Now that they admitted to us that we were so wrong when it came to you and you know, Allah has chosen you above us given you so much more than he has given us.
Use of Islam now speaks and he says beautiful words of compassion and forgiveness. He says parlour led to three barley cumin, young, they will be no disagree upon you today. The three comes from the root of thump. Third means to strip off the outer layer of a stomach. The three means not to blame someone, even though they are worthy of blame. How does that go together? Well, they said that, you know, like you strip the skin of the stomach
in the same way, like you would you strip the skin of a stomach, then you expose what is underneath and becomes Bay here. In the same way when you reprimand or blame someone in public for something they know that they've done wrong. They become exposed. Right, the reputation becomes tarnished. So useful Islami Satan. I'm not going to do that to you today. Yeah, not today. And never in the future. I'm not going to make mention of this even though I could you know, you are guilty. I could make this dream. But let everybody Coolio today. I'm not going to do that meeting today. And from here on in. I'm never going to mention it again. You know, someone says I can forgive you. I can't
forget. You know, fix this to say that.
People say that right? I can forgive you but I can't forget. What do you mean you can't forget so you can remind me tomorrow? Well, maybe
we wait till tomorrow. They usually forgive and I forget. I'm not gonna mention it.
ever again. In the future, not gonna do them. Let the three barley cumin, Yom, Yom, Allahu Allah.
Allah has forgiven you.
Now how can someone say Allah has forgiven you?
You don't know if I must forgiven you. Right? What the meaning isn't that Allah is forgiven you I know all is forgiven you. It is it? Is all sin Allah. Oh ALLAH forgive them for what they did. Like you know when someone sees a Alhamdulillah other person says, You are humbled. Allah. Allah, have mercy on you. Allah had mercy on you. Did you not learn mercy on me? No, no, I said,
I'm asking a lot of mercy on you. Yeah. It's like a figure of speech. So you say Allah, May Allah forgive you will have a right I mean, and at the end of the day, Allah is the Most Merciful of the Merciful.
do you have time? How long do you
so soccer five minutes for?
So another thing is
we can all improve
share that this is amazing that he totally forgives them and says I'm not even going to mention it ever again, this amazing for someone to do that to people that hated on you tried to kill you. That's amazing. But you might be thinking, I can't do that, you know, there's someone here, you don't realize that.
I don't think I could do that. And one of the things that may help you to be like use of Islam, in pardoning people, when they've done wrong to you, is the following.
Number one, you need to distinguish between someone doing wrong to you, because you're a Muslim, and someone doing wrong to you, and you happen to be a Muslim. You know, I'm saying,
okay, make sense. Like, somebody, okay? You on the sphere, you may be in the street, okay? And
you're going about your business, and
you're shopping and you want to pay for something that you've been you've gone into the queue, you don't realize that you actually jumped the queue, you didn't realize that, you know, sometimes, long queue, you just walk in and realize the guy behind you. Okay, now imagine the coffee system is doing the shopping. She jumps to cute. Didn't you realize the guy behind us some bald headed white guy, Ed? Oh, man, you can tell. In fact, it's got to tell when the baggy deals or at least guys ripping into how do you jump the queue ladder? Look at all these people behind and you feel you can come in and just jump the queue. Now, is he telling off because you happen to jump the queue? Or is he
telling off because she's a Muslim?
Maybe a bit of both. But which one? Is it more?
Probably the latter one, right? Because he muslimah he's taking the full opportunity to express his hatred at you because you're a Muslim.
Man, someone should not turn around and say he led to three body Konya.
No blame on you today. Mr. EDL.
Love, you are in no position to forgive anyone in that particular smell. You're not in a position. Why? Because they are not attacking you, sister, brother. They are attacking Islam.
Can you say I forgive you for attacking Islam to anyone? You know, I recently was popular with the Charlie Hebdo. people asking serious silly questions asking a source there was a sister Muslim sister on on on TV, because news night and the guy asked her if Mohammed Aslam was here right now, would he forgive? Charlie Hebdo. For those depictions? The thing is the asking her a question because they want to say to see, you're saying they shouldn't have done that. But let's say the Prophet himself would say what do you forgive them? Because if you say he would forgive them, then it kind of means that while you're not forgiving them, and if you say he won't forgive them, you're
portraying him as an extremist. You see the question?
But the answer is, can I forgive on behalf of somebody else? Like if someone came and slapped in your face? Could I say, I forgive you? I forgive you.
What do you mean, you forgive him? It's got nothing to do with you?
Is my honor. How can you forgive for my honor? You can't do you understand?
is a invalid question. Same thing, a person is insulting, abusing you because you are Muslim. It means he's attacking Islam in that situation. You have to respond in a way that shows that Islam cannot be insulted in that way. And that differs from situation to situation. Right? So in that situation, sister could turn around and say it's nothing to do with jump with accuser. You just hate Islam, isn't it? admitted. Aha. So now people are seeing this scene. And what they're seeing is this sister is actually she's not having it. And though she admits that she might be at fault, she's defending Islam. Islam is being defended. Islam is not being allowed to be maligned by this person.
Haha, not led to three body camileo. So insult or offense to Islam, or you because you're a Muslim, cannot be responded to we turn the other cheek. No way. You have to respond in a way that shows that Islam cannot be spoken of in that way. And you decide how best to do that. As for personal insult, like use of Islam, that's different. That's about you. They hated on use, they plotted against the use of not because he's a Muslim, because he's the he's the brother who the dad loves more than the present. So in that, in that case, what is best for you
to do is to pardon that person. If this is the key thing, if pardoning that person will bring about a change in them
will have a positive impact. You know, I mean, so let's say like two friends they you know, the fallout one person he borrowed money or another and then the next day turns out nothing of you talking about is gonna be 400 pounds and give you 100 pounds.
He was talking about he always wanted a product give it to you what now I'm asking for my week saying that I never gave you 100 pounds.
Okay, if I say to him let the three barley corn Jamboree, but it's okay. Anyway. Yeah, maybe he'll say
to him, to him. I said to him, these Muslims nice. School can do that to them, they don't mind.
But if saying let the three bar a comedian will make you feel, man. And he's saying that don't worry by his law, have a really bad
look at the way he responded. He's forgiven me, and are so proud of me to do that. Now let me give the money back to him. Yeah. If you think that pardoning that person, about person and something you will help him or to help your relationship with Him or help him grow close to Allah, then pardon them his best partner in the business was social hydrolysate. And reconciling is best. If it is actually going to be reconciliation. Do you see that? It is not going to be reconciliation, it is going to be a facade. And that's not hate. That's not good. So personal situations, you can pardon and paddling is the best if pardoning is going to impact the person positively. Yeah. However,
there's opposite pardoning which is to take revenge. And it's possible to take revenge, if the system is in place to take revenge, like a sauce. If there is a court system, where you can say this person wronged me financially, and I want to take revenge, I want the 100 pound back by taking him to court wherever I could apply for that no problem. Or there's something in the middle. Which is to say, I want you to, you know, I wanna I want to compromise. You said that you I didn't give you this. I say you didn't give me this. Let me half half half. That's even better. It's even better. Why is it better? Why is it better to pardon? Why I'm losing 100 pounds, you know, you're telling me
Well, the reason is better, is because not better for you now is better for you.
Why? Because a lot loves for you to pardon. So you're doing something Allah loves. And though you might be taking a hit here, at the end of the day, you just done some that Allah loves. He loves this more than he loves you taking revenge. Ah, so that's why I should let go of the argument. That's why I should maybe take the hit. Because Allah loves for me to pardon. Fine. From that perspective, I can understand why it's better. Yeah, that's why it is better.
If a person cannot bring themselves to pardon the person, then he can go for the second option. Yeah. Which is to try and compromise. And compromise is always better than taking revenge. Why? Well, because my brothers and sisters are finished with this. At the end of the day, you said, from your perspective, you're in the right. Maybe from his perspective, he's in the right. Who knows, is true, isn't it? Sometimes you say Nah, it's clear. You wronged me? The brother said no. is clearly he wronged me? Okay, he was right. Okay. Just be careful, because you may think you're right. And you may get revenge, then you die. And on Yom Okayama. You find out he was right. Oh my god, he was
right after all.
What can I give him except my good deeds now that I don't want to be in that situation is better for me to be the mother loon than the volume better for me to be the oppressed one and take the hit now then end up being the volume later on here because I didn't know any better. That's why compromising and pardoning is always better as well, because sometimes you don't know whether you're in the right, you might end up actually being in the wrong, you don't know you find out when it's too late.
So that brings us to the end of the dose Subhana Allah habitica Allah, Allah and the stuff to willeke which is a kunafa
