Soda to Sara Marla to man aquilani Haley calcular huge marine Nabina Muhammad in while he was actually married from
Santa Monica LA, there his brothers and sisters, and welcome to the continuation of the series with Yusuf Ali Salaam. This is our seventh lesson now, I was actually thinking about how long this journey will take us because panela even I'm speaking to my wife today. And I said, you know, don't know when how long it's going to take because at the moment, we're working at a pace of three versus a lesson.
And how many versions will use of
100 and I think 111.
So if we can at this pace, or take another 30 lessons minimum.
What do you think we should do? Should we speed it up or the basis? Okay.
What do you think?
Give us is.
Okay, so the part of the story that we've got to now is that usefulness has been thrown into the bottom of a well by his brothers, brothers come back home. They've got their father to confront. They make excuses the father, jacobellis sees right through the excuse and he says color, but it's so wedded to the cool man for Sakuma murrah
that you've just beautified this whole thing for yourself, so don't believe what you're saying. And as for me, then, you know, I'm gonna have Southern Jamil a beautiful patients, we explained what that meant. And on top of that, we're long Stan Wilder moto sifu, and I'm going to be seeking the help of a larger Narada in regards to what is going on so his heart was actively you know, engaged in a worship of Allah through this tribulation. Next, we will take inshallah, verse 1920 and 21 So let's start by reciting that Shanna
our humaneness Shay in banyuwangi Bismillah euro, Euro, he
one more morally moonbeam
or shall be feminine
to the anti moussaka no fee mean as he the one call
me Salima g actually me Messiah who answer
sofa fill out
wa Salatu was Salam ala MB mursaleen, the Vienna Mohammedan while he was a heavier Spain, inshallah there will be a price today for whoever answers a particular question correctly. And I'll let you know when that question comes up in Sharla. This verse, Allah subhanaw taala says I'd say okay, so the scene before this is about the brothers that come home speak to the dad make up the lights. Now if you like the camera goes back to the will. Who's in the bottom of the well a young child use of an s&m? Allah says Now think about that scene. Go back to the world. What I'd say your AC Yara comes say you're in our times refer to a car but sejarah actually means the mode which people used to
travel. Okay, so it's referring to a caravan actually is referring to is a poor the caravan is so these caravans coming and they want to travel. Okay, so Michelle Kelly Ramallah says that this caravan
of travelers was actually a business you know, caravan is and they were going from Sham passing through Palestine and heading up to Egypt where they all from
now this sejarah these caravan is they lose their way happened to lose their way now what happens when a judge say yada Lou worried then they send they worried they're worried is the person who is sent to draw water up for the rest of the crew basically okay so you've got the scout and they are solo they sent him out in search of water which kind of shows that they lost because they need to they don't know the way they don't always the nearest Well, they need water for us a little worried for them. And then he had the La delva
he puts down his bucket into the bottom of this well. Now this is a very interesting verbiage for Adela Here
we find it in sort of our off regarding shaytaan fidella humor before Oh
yeah, for the Luma boo that Allah said about shippon regarding them and how that he he slowly reel them in to disobeying Allah. So Allah means that you can imagine the what are the maybes a young guy who comes to the world is slowly putting down his bucket. And then he slowly reeling it back up and then who's at the bottom of the will use restaurant to use his arm grabs onto the rope of that of that bucket.
The other interesting thing Allison didn't say Fadela then one Allah said Fadela then we're who this bucket was actually belonging to the word of them so that's quite strange because what is a well usually have with it
a bucket So Allah is telling us that there was no bucket now that points to the fact that was very primitive well there's not even a bucket there. I mean, come on. The least you can have is a bucket near well or they did have a bucket and the brothers cut it off.
So no one even could use the word funnel yeah at the level where who his bucket whose bucket the word is why do you have to use Bucky well because there's no bucket
so useful it's not the bottle? Well he grabs it and then call a Bushra this worried. He pulls up slowly slowly the bucket and what does he find? He says yeah bush ah now yeah bush law is a figure of speech is like saying oh my god what have I just found called a bush?
This is a Vietnam and we said what I'm pointing to the age of usefulness from here somewhere in between seven and puberty so when I'm young boys and when I'm excited Why do you think is excited finding a boy at the bottom of the world? I mean if you found a boy at the bottom of the work could you be excited
was he was excited for
ancient times? Would that what happens in ancient times was common in ancient times slavery is thinking touching
on the boy and the thing is a boy is actually one of the most expensive kinds of slaves because young is going to serve me for God knows how long young could become a strong man helped me in so many ways. So already the word is thinking you know this is you know like a treasure Alia was another one so what does he do what a sub rule will be a bar and so they hide him with their Ba ba ba ba is your cargo it's your commodities you know they we said they businessmen right so they've got the caravan caravan some of them they ride on but at the back like the back of a train you have you know the cargo is just goods in the no one sits in there just goods. So sellable goods is called
Bella that was going to come a few times h1 what do they do they hide him amongst the cargo. Why?
What are they hiding amongst the cargo?
Okay, so other people don't find out that they found this boy but you know what, it is not necessarily safe. It could just be a free man as well.
Keeping for himself, okay, yeah, that's a bit closer. The fact is that they found like a treasure. Now, if they say, you know what, we found this boy. Then what's all the other businessmen gonna say? When you sell him? He was a shear. All right. As a mama show Kanaka mala mentioned
At the factories, they hit him so that the others wouldn't try to take a share of the final sale when they do end up selling him.
However, interesting point here, which leaves a difference of opinion, there was one worried right? What? He's the one who found the boy. But then Allah says what a sub rule who a sir rule is in the plural, and they hate him inside of the cargo. Who's they?
See here, some of the scholars said that in fact, something different happened. The brothers have useful Islam but they waiting in the midst when they saw the caravan coming and they saw that they found use of they came along. Okay, they came along. And they said this is one of ours basically run off runaway slave like one of the runaway slave and we'll send him to you.
Qantas next level crazy cruelty they throw in a while they waited for someone to come so they could sell him off. That's even worse. You know? Now this is a difference of opinion or a lot of Annie rahimullah said this is close. This is the view that he chose to be more accurate of the to
him on the show Can he said no. The other view is more accurate to say that it was the if you like the close friends of the wallet, you know his own people say he's got a few, you know, companions friends and he says, Look, I found a boy who I saw who bizarre is hiding the cargo. And that's what they did.
Now, unless it will last while he will be ma Yama loon, Allah was fully aware about that which they were doing.
This is can be understood in two ways a law was aware of what the brothers did in terms of cruelty to use varicella allows away meaning a warning a shock and he said this is like a stern warning being given to the brothers of useless unarmed I know what you did, and they will be a consequence of what you did message. The other way of understanding it which has mentioned is that this is actually referring to
the caravan is you know what they just did right there. The last thing I'm fully aware of what they have just done and that actually has another meaning that comes out of it which is that Allah actually wanted them to find him. That was something Alon knew of and wanted that to happen and allowed it to happen if Nicosia Rahim Allah mentioned this in Buddha when Nehemiah that there is another message here that a lot of new meaning allow wanted that to happen. Everyone thinking oh no, it's been sold into slavery. What's gonna happen now? What are you going to do to law Lee my law is a way a law new law wanted that to happen. Okay, that was part of a laws plan.
Let's move on. Some lessons we can just learn from this one is, number one, Allahu Allah you leadin Allah is the protective friend of the believer. Look at the KC of usefulness and I'm so proud of Allah thrown into the bottom of world left for dead and it just so happens that I say Yara caravan is come along and they've lost this out. They've lost their way themselves, and they stumble upon him. And in that way, the use of come out to the world. Allah saved him. Yeah, Allah saved him. Why? Because he's a believer. Allah says in Surah Al Baqarah, verse number 257 Allahu Wali EULA Dena amor, Allah is the Wali of those that believe. Okay, so this is clear here. Allah saved us for
Islam. And that shows he's you know that he is the Willie of the believer. second lesson here is allows help comes from unlikely sources. This is a very nice point. And of course, we mentioned nsfc which is that, I mean, from of all the things that could have happened, what do you know, a car loses its way and ends up stumbling upon you. So it's quite strange, isn't it to happen. But this happens so often the Koran consider the case of Mossad Islam.
His mother inspired to throw him into the Nile, a young baby. Why does she want to throw him into the Nile? Why, what's the reason?
What does he want to throw into the into the night? Why does he have to get rid of them for
from around for hours, just put out a policy that in order to counter extremism,
we need to kill all the leading male children. So the mother of musella salaam throws
busara salaam, into the into the Nile in order to get away from further on, where does he end up? in the house of Iran, Allahu Akbar.
And further on is the one who ends up looking after him because of his wife. And then from that does moose and Islam come out a profit? Unbelievable.
What? such as unlikely source, that is where the help of unlock came from. Consider the case of Seville, Korea. Okay. You know, the story went through and Satya seen the 3d profits came and the people rejected and then they're about to kill them. Okay, so some helps come, where did the help come from?
It came in the form of man right? with that man come from.
person, Medina, Allah said, the only description I'm going to give you about this man is not his name, not his age. The fact that he came from the furthest distance of the city, the most unlikely place that a person that would come and help you out, is the place that he ends up coming up from he would have thought that somebody witnessing what's going on look at them. They're going to kill these guys, man. Let's let me go. I gotta go. I can see this happening for my eyes. No, not him. Not those people. Somebody on the other side of the city comes, a lot of help comes and it comes in the most unlikely way. Yeah, the most unlikely way. That's one lesson we learned that lesson a laws help
came at breaking point. Okay, we covered this last time, which is that a lot could have saved useless lamb even before is thrown into a tree or not. You know, it could have been the case that you could climb out himself.
Anything could have happened. But the fact is that you said Islam was left for dead and he had no way out. This was a cube. Well, in the middle of nowhere, no one's gonna find him. Now that he's in total isolation, nothing to help him in that scenario does a loss pantelis and his help. So it brought him to the very brink, this is the end. And then he sent us a euro to come and help him who we spoke about last time. Appeal mentioned that one reason why Allah subhanaw taala brings a slave to the breaking point before he sends his help is in order to give him the maximum reward. Okay, we mentioned this last time. So this is this is an example an example of this as well. Another reasons
panela is that when a person is reaches the just about the point that you know what, I can't take this anymore, you know, nothing is going right is no help for me. There's no way out. In that scenario, he's only got who to turn to.
So Allah subhanaw taala creates the scenario with which a slave will end up only being able to turn to him, you know, just like a mother that the when the person sort of took out his companion 313 or they didn't go out for a war they actually went out to ambush or caravan what happens predation coming how many 1000 odd we haven't even got proper armor we got one horse in the whole army Oh my God let me annihilated why Elijah you allowed them to go to this stage where it looks like they're going to get wiped out or because in that state will they turned to me in real passion sincerity because they got no one else to turn to yeah
so these are some of the mock acid of some of the higher objectives of testing Viola tests us is many objectives behind it these are two of them
okay let's move on shall the story continues was shadow will be feminine box in the raw mmm do that you were can fi mean as he did a lot in sales was shadow and they shut out who means sold him okay? Is that all yesterday okay can mean to buy for me Josie rush mama said this is a word which is our dad it can take the opposite meanings. It can either mean to sell or it can mean to buy. In this case it means to sell or shadow. So I'm not going to tell us now and please pay attention to this that they sold use of La ceram off on the slave market. And I'm going to relate to you three things about this transaction. Three details. Okay. What are the number one shadow will be feminine boss
that the theremin The price was boss, okay. usually translated to mean cheap. Actually, this word comes
From the root of Huskies caceis means to be offensive. okay to be offensive. So Allah saying number one, they sold him off for such an offensively cheap price. It was dirt cheap, you know, third million boxing offensive, meaning a slave boy on the market at that time in Egypt would have fetched a handsome price. But they decided to sell it for a offensively cheap price. Really cheap, okay 30 bucks in the raw Hema Mark Duda the raw him this is brother Allah saying first it was summon the price. And now the price was countable. But instead of using summon Allah use the raw him, which kind of creates like an image in our mind that all homies approved. dyrham did homies the silver
coinage, Allah saying, imagine that when they were selling him or use them as long as they're, they're making a deal now saying, Okay, how much you want for him. And they agreed on a really, really low price. And then the raw him that they offered was so little that they will do that. You could count them. You could count them you don't like in those times if you had a lot of dyrham silver coins. You'd have to wait to work how much that was. If it wasn't even that much then you could just count them like this. Is it okay? You want it for that much?
You want a bit more? Okay No sir fine. Take him and if you had to do was it took it further all Hema Mara do they was countable meaning you could just look at it and counting. You don't have to even measure it. And then Allah mentioned his third detail about the transaction. What can fee mean as he did and they were regarding him? That he then
the head? Okay. linguistically, it means when someone
would I think
it means to be aloof, okay. You have something of value. You don't care much about it. Okay, someone comes and ask you for it. Take an approach. You got a very expensive car. You got Mercedes Benz, for example, state of the art. Three, you only care much about you know, someone comes and says look, can I buy off you? The actual price is 50 grand? Is it taken for 25? No problem. Why? When it comes to that meaning, it doesn't really bother me. What I have what I don't have it. So last in regards to use of Now I use them here. And I didn't say what can mean as a Idina fee. There were people observe there was a hit people about him. And I said, What candle fee demonization meaning they
don't really like this. Usually they're not. But when it came to him fee, they became zide.
Okay, why? Why did they become zide? When it came to him? What did he sell him? So cheap? Why did they not pay much attention to him? Even though a boy's labor is worth a lot of money?
Why? Who can answer this question?
So this is good. So alone, he said, the hidden Why do they hide him because they didn't want other characters to find out. So they've got something. And this shouldn't really have if they do have to share without sharing with everybody else. However, there's something else as well. And that is that they knew he was a free boy.
Okay, the news free person, you can't just sell a free person. Okay? Either you buy a slave, or somebody bought into slavery. But they got him and they realize this isn't a slave, but we're gonna sell him off as a slave. So basically, they got something for free, and they're going to sell him as a slave when he's not really asleep. He's a free person. So you know, like when you get these back of the lorry goods.
No one's gonna say they have a boy anything on the back of a lorry. But you see, sometimes, you know, they come in to the shop. You know, those?
Those drug addicts, and they say, Oh, you got to buy the switch. Rolex, how much? 100 pounds 100 pounds.
Now, I'll give you the opportunity to list
or take it quickly. Get rid of it. Because it doesn't even own it for the sneaked it. Yeah. So they know they've got something illegal, okay, they want to get rid of it. Because having something illegal is problematic. Somebody might find out. So I'm not allowed, okay. He's telling us that, you know, they knew that he was a free person. He wasn't a slave, they selling him off. And that's one of the reasons why they sold him for a cheap, dirt cheap price. However, there is something else my brother's okay. And this is the question I'm going to pose it to you.
The fact is that Allah Subhana Allah gave one whole verse out of use of the use of explaining how they sold use of as a slave. Okay, that's a lot
Have ditto, right? And on top of that a lot told it in three different ways. 17 bucks. And the larger I said, the longer I do the other on top of that Allah said Colonel fee even as a healing, a lot of detail. Okay.
And the thing is,
I never mentioned the price. Well, I could have said the price I could have said it was 30 theorems.
Local Who said that? Allah knows how much it was a lot, intentionally emitted the price and instead told us three things about the price. Three details about price. Okay. And these were the three details.
And also Allah said about him especially there was a hidden so the question arises here, which is why was so much detail given about useful Islam? And his and the way they sold him off in Egypt? Why? Why was so much detail given? And you know, other places in the story, for example, who What was the name of that woman? She's mentioned so many times, but only as in volatilizes, the wife of Aziz, What was her name? A lot. Devon mentioned it.
Okay, but then in the next verse, where is he sold off to Allah says, we'll call this the wrong who Mim missile. Or the place the country's identified Egypt is where he went to and where he was bought. So that detail was mentioned. So this detail, the actual price wasn't mentioned instead, how low they sold him for and how little they cared about him was mentioned instead.
What are we being taught him my brothers and sister sisters can also
for the prizes?
Okay, we have a system one is one channel.
So let us take two minutes here, okay, discuss it in pairs. And then I'll ask you if you know the answer, and shoulder time starts now.
Let's have your attention though. The two brothers at the back there. What do you think?
Why was so much detail given about the actual transaction?
Okay, the fact that they were scared, you know that they were selling something illegal? That's already mentioned. We said that already. But that just answered the question as to you know, why did they sell them so cheap? That's another question. The question we're asking is, why did Allah subhanaw taala give so much detail about the transaction?
is a little bit different to the question. Okay, brother, the back here.
Okay, you quite close? What do you mean by that the money is not really the issue is more to do with what
the value of
Okay, okay, so you're saying it, relatively speaking, if we were told the price, for example, we wouldn't really know whether it's low or high. Very good point. However you said. So in order not to go there. Allah gave us details. It was a cheap price. Okay. So that's what I'm saying. Now, based on that, what is the message
that they sold him for such a treat price? So cheap, so cheap.
Y'all know, what's the message here?
Okay, it's kinda close to you saying that, you know, they devalued useful Islam. But let's say that they paid the actually got the actual price. Would that be something that would be okay, then
I kind of get your point, which is part of the answer, that the fact that they sold it for such a low price means that they
knew it was so low, and they never realized he actually was
they never realized who he actually was.
He was invaluable here.
Where is this happening?
Egypt, okay, useful Islam is going to become who in Egypt
is going to become second in command.
What is it going to do when it becomes second in command?
What's it going to do for the people of Egypt?
He's going to save them for
He is going to become the most significant person in Egypt 40 years later. And the last thing look at how it began. Those people, those Egyptians, they sold it for such a cheap price. They are no idea who he was, especially to them later on. They had no idea. And this is the way a lot plans. People have no idea what is going on. They had no idea this young boy, this what I'm what we're trying to make a few bucks from is going to become our Aziz and then he is going to save us from destruction. Unbelievable. That is why I will learn that Allah gives so much detail about this and the other things problema
you know, useful Islam because Egypt, he becomes Aziz then his family come here, his family come who's his father
Jacobian Islam from Jacobian Islam which tribe comes
which tribe comes from jacobina some money is thrown at the children of Yahoo. The whole legacy of Benny Estella L. continues in Egypt, and then who comes later on in Egypt to save them from saved slavery
musen Islam this transaction will actually trigger the entry of venues that are into Egypt. Then
his father will come and then when he is raw, he will live in Egypt become slaves to around and then the legacy of Moses ROM will come about and through the legacy of muslin so now we'll verify leave Egypt. All of this came down to this. This one point in history and look at how people underestimated what was going on. They would have no idea unbelievable a lot of how a lot of plants and that is how like the next verse a lot, a lot Wally buena abri Allah is in total control of his affair. Unbelievable. It's so beautiful. It's amazing. Okay, so no one got the answer for that. Sorry brothers.
If I come up with another question, I'll try and put it in then Shana. Okay, next verse. mccollister humi Misra, Liberace a creamy Murthy. The story continues now they've sold him off. Now. It's about the one who bought him. Okay. We'll call the levy is wrong now the one who bought him. Okay. was from the missile. He's an Egyptian. He says Illuminati he says to his woman mean to his wife at creamy meth.
Okay, I cream as well. Make honorable his mouthwash. Yeah, the mouthwash is a place where somebody stays for a very long time.
A very long time. Like Allah subhanaw taala said before kumana and now must work welcome. Holly Deena fear. Allah. Allah, Allah Allah said that as far the meth wa is going to be the fire of hell mathway used meeting display, they're going to be staying for a long time. Allah save us from the so the same would be used here. So Aziz, who is the person here borgeson Islam and now as he bringing home to his, as he's bringing him home, is talking to use of Salaam. And looking and talking to him and seeing the way he behaves. He realizes this no ordinary person is no ordinary child. So when he comes home to his wife, he says, actually math work. And she's thinking what he's a slave. You just
went to the slave market. You got a slave and you bring him home. And you're telling me to give him the best bedroom in the house. And then he's gonna stay for very long time already. You decided that a slave your slave like this in our own in Pakistan, my grandfather, he has servants they have servants they literally have servants. And where do they live? They live in like they call it a shield for what they call it. There's like a little hut
in the backyard. And if you've seen this, that's where they live. Okay and the worst place in the house. So the strange thing is as you signal actually me Mister, put him in the best place of state. Now, in the actual Rahim Allah said this is actually a figure of speech. What it means is not giving the best room or most honorable place in the house, it actually means take down good care of him. This one is
Take real good care of him.
It's quite strange. So he gives two reasons as to why I'm saying this. He says number one, as a young foreigner, maybe is the case that he will benefit us a lot, meaning become a very, you know, a obedient slave of ours and do all the things you want done in the house.
Oh, oh, Nikita, one of the we can take him as a wallet as a child, meaning we could adopt him. So he's really, he really likes Islam already. He just bought him, brought him home, and he already thinks highly of him, and he's sending his wife, first of all, put him in a very in look after him. Okay, and maybe he you know, he become a great slave, or we could even take him as a son.
Now, at this point, some of the scholars like
him, Allah mentioned that Aziz and his wife, they couldn't have children. In fact, if I understood properly, Aziz ne ne had problems that he couldn't fulfill the any needs of his wife, okay, maybe he's impotent or something. So because of that, he says, this one here, that Nikita one of them, we could take him as a good adoption, and we don't have any children of our own. So we could take him as a child. So he gave reasons to his wife. Okay. Now here this God has said that, you know, the ferocity of Aziz, for us it means intuitive nature that he saw something in usefulness and I'm like that and he made a judgment call about who is or what he's like, he's an amazing person. So let's be
different towards him.
But it seems more the case that useful is not himself was so honorable in the way he behaved, that you could tell him apart from everybody else, okay. Now, the reason I say that is because later on in the story, what we find about Aziz is not good things, okay. We find out that when he comes home and he sees his wife, clearly trying to, you know,
seduce his slave useless now, what does he say?
He says, 30 juices,
just turn away, Turn around, turn away from this, ignore it, push it under the carpet. Is he and what do you say to his wife? He says,
you made a mistake. You make even a heartbreaking you know, you made a mistake. Come on, that's your woman. She just tried it on another guy, not even another guy, your slave and you're telling useless it
just puts you under the carpet and your wife, foster family them big. ask Allah to forgive you kind of any man who said you know, nothing to do with any will get my house. So
is it really the case at the very end some of them we look up to and someone that we think he was actually a very good person, the most we can say is that a larger lot of placed in the heart of Ozzy's affection towards usefulness. And that is clear by his words, a creamy mouthwash. And that's obviously a good statement of his. So his general character. The fact is, he's a politician. Okay. Number two, the way he treats his wife and the fact that he doesn't have a go he actually says let's keep this Hush Hush. And then later on again, something else will happen.
Forgot exactly what but in in conversation with the king, he says something else which doesn't paint him in a good light either. So anyway, those are some reasons why, perhaps is not a good idea to think that as he's was a very, very good person.
Next thing Elijah lost his work early can can lead us to fill out the world in early madhumita. We heard this, okay. This is beautiful because it's like Allah, pause the story and then spoke over to tell us a lesson. Okay, stories happening or the Vanguard's is by zombies coming home we speak to his wife, make sure you get
toes is where we can you know, keep him and become our son. And then what
can we use of now law speaking, okay, pay attention hit is a listen. Allah says what Kevin began in in that way, McKenna did we establish Yusuf Alayhi Salam in El out the land, meaning that land of Egypt, okay. And here are what is being said is Allah saying, Look at what just happened.
He was going to die in the world.
We saved him. He sold into slavery, and we placed in the heart of his master, love and affection for him. So he ends up
In the house of somebody who's going to take care of him from being in a situation that he's going to die to be in a situation where, actually Sorry, I'm in Egypt. Well, Master looking after me, is giving me the best room in the house. On top of that, who is this person? Aziz?
Oh, so I'm going to learn few things from him. You know, he's a politician. He's actually, I don't know this now. But I'm going to do his job. I'm going to become as he's one day. So the way I'm going to learn how to become Aziz is from Aziz himself. I'm going to learn the ins and outs of Egyptian politics, how to be the state treasurer, and all the rest of it. All of this happening How is this all happening? What coverley can can use to fulfill Allah saying we are doing this but can now we are the ones who establish use of Islam on this earth? Egypt, okay. Why? Okay, Allah is going to give us the reason why he brought him to Egypt Now, why lead while Lima who mentor will have this
this lamb here, what Lino Alamo, this level of tally of reasoning. The reason why we established us for Islam in Egypt is not so we can eat well, drink will live a life of luxury. No, it is in order to teach him how to interpret a Hardee's. This is the reason why he's reached a new stage in his life. And the reason why we put him in this particular scenario is because through it, you will gain experience into that we will ahaadeeth.
Now, for the price of another question. There were two main interpretations for will ahaadeeth. Who can tell me the two interpretations?
We all know one of them. Right?
One interpretation of dreams. Second interpretation of events
No, that's not the second main meaning there are two main meanings. I mentioned that I think I mentioned. The third, you mentioned the third one, but that's any bit buried. The two main means yesterday.
Interpretation of Revelation, very good, that will have these number one, the ability to interpret dreams. Number two, the ability to interpret revelation and the revelation that came to prophets before as well as their traditions, okay, so this stage of his life, and what's going to happen to him in Egypt, everything that happens, it serves a higher purpose, and that is to teach him how to do that thing. And that thing is the cause of another thing.
He learns that interpret dreams, then he ends up interpreting the dream of the two prisoners and then the king and then he becomes Aziz and then his brothers come, and the whole thing comes to a conclusion. So pianola, the plan of Allah, but first, let's give the prize to a brother.
come, come, come.
Don't be Santa.
Mashallah, you don't get it?
And you also answered another question very well, last time.
That one is on Shama say Mashallah, this
Okay, so, Allah said this serve the purpose, then Allah concluded this lesson, will Allahu hollyburn, Allah and re, and Allah is long lived over Andrey, he, humbly he, his matter whose matter two interpretations first interpretation, the matter of usefulness from his life what's happening, allies is highly, highly means to be fully in control. Actually, it has a meaning of overpowering ignore, I should have said that, you know, when when someone is violent, it means that these opposing forces, but he's able to overpower them, okay. The second interpretation is allies are highly over and re meaning the affair, everything in existence, every single thing, Allah is highly
over all of that. Now, if the meaning of our lives as of now, as you said is to overpower
something that is trying to oppose. Then it gives us another insight, which is that
look, for example, the brothers have useful Islam. They had their own plan, right? They wanted to get rid of them. Do they manage to fulfill the plan?
They never did they This is actually going to come back to haunt them now. So they try to oppose the intent and plan of Allah. Lessing, long haul labor, Allah olivary here the Allies volleyball over the the FA meeting people try to oppose a laws plan. However, laws passed
will always come into completion, who always come into completion. This is something that Allah said, What did he say? Well I can axon as Illa Allah moon, but most people they don't know this. Most people they don't understand most people don't even believe this, that Allah is fully in control. Everything is happening. So, a lot taught us this lesson by telling us a story. Okay, and what happened before this story, actually all points towards this one main lesson that Allah is law live over his armor.
totally in control. So what things? Let's go back. Okay. What happened when useful Islam had a dream, he told his dad right? What did that say to him?
Keep it to yourself. Do you think he kept it to himself?
He kept himself. So then how the brothers find out and try to plot against him.
Something must have happened because they found out.
Okay, yeah, they saw that already. They already burning about that. But something took the skills. Yeah, something happened, which made them go to that extent of actually planning to kill him. Yeah. So some of the scholars said that they actually did find out about the dream. When they did. That was it.
So what happened? Exactly useless? I wouldn't have told them. Well, lo Hollywood automaty. This was a plan of a lot. Okay. They ended up finding out. Next thing, they said Aqua to Lucifer. The plan was initially kill him or throw him a lien for dead in some other land tree or not. But it just so happened that one of them said
one of them had a change of heart and said don't kill him. Instead, throw him in the bottom of will. A long Harley, Bernardo de la wanted them
thrown in the bottom of a wheel on us and is finished now. It's come to the end. A car comes out of nowhere. Well, lohani monado alone wanted that. That is why after all of this and then he ends up in Egypt, in the house of Aziz, who we will one day become as is of that country. Oh my god, all the countries in the world. Egypt is the place he ends up. How comes along with it? Well, not every It is amazing how Allah teaches Allah and Paolo one thing we learn here is that the purpose of the story is not the story itself. You know, the details of the story is not the reason why a lot told us the story. It is in order to teach us lessons. And that is why sometimes some details are
permitted. And I'll give you a give you a quick example. Right? Something happened to me when I was at university it was exam D with no exams and
as me and one of my close friends wanted to have some lunch so we went to you know, pretty much we used to call it pretty manga is very expensive.
They went they got sandwich I remember he got the sandwich and there was a limited edition sound I don't know which one it was I got the sandwich they so we walking through the station we're gonna go sit down eat. There's some guy sitting on the floor. And he's begging
to we saw him said, you know,
would you want some food? I don't get money. You know, the some people they want money in order to take drugs so that we don't suffer because yeah, I take food. So again, the sales Come on, you feel sorry for them, I gave the sandwich. Now something happened. That made us turn back later on and come the same way. We came back they and I saw him sitting there. And he threw this hammer on the floor.
And I thought to myself, so hon Allah, He threw on the floor. It is a complete waste. And the one thing that stuck in my mind is I never had a clause behind the action. I never gave in that sandwich seeking the pleasure of Allah I gave it to him because I felt sorry for him. And then I realized that I had I had a clause, even if you throw it away, I still would have got something. I still got a word from Allah thrown up in the air Melbourne yet,
but the fact is very flat. So I was lamenting of
this whole story. The if I want to, for example, give a hook bonus loss and I mentioned the story.
And someone says, by the rules a limited edition sandwich. As a commodity, the whole point of the story is not to eat to know the sandwich the void
The story is that look, there's a lesson
here. So hon Allah this is you know a legend. Oh Allah is saying look the story pose one lesson here kalong harlequinade you know and he said amazing lesson, and it's beautifully drawn out as well through the story. It is you know from the beauty of the Quran is panela These are the words of a lot. Okay? I think okay, there's some lessons here. Three lessons Sharla will end here. Number one, Allah prepares his slaves, Miss pada Miss prepares, prepares his slaves for challenges mentioned by him. nathalia Rahim Allah. He said, Look here, Allah gelada McCann, who fill out my canal use of Allah said that he establishes Islam on the earth. Why in order to serve another purpose. So things
are going to happen to us for somebody's life. Big things, traumatic things, sometimes not traumatic, sometimes quite incredible becoming the as these different challenges in your life. A law prepares you for them.
Not prepares you for them prepares the believer for the person who is a true believer in Allah, sincere to Allah who is trying to do those things he knows a lot love staying away from those things. He knows Allah hates, you are believer, and your life is going to be different. One way is going to be different these things are going to happen a lot is going to prepare you for them. Where do we learn from look at the life of usefulness? You know, a lot of preparing him stage up to stage there's going to be another stage of his life where he's in prison for a long time.
And we're going to speak about why prison
How did that impact useful Islam? What benefit did that serve? Regardless of what the answer is we can say for sure that he was a preparation for something greater to come in his life and that is the way Allah deals with his slaves. Now lawmakers from the
number two Listen here no one knows the Hey except a law mentioned by a lovely rahimullah. He said hey, Roger law, civil law, hollywood nada de la jolla wala is Holly over the whole affair, meaning he's in complete control. And part of that control comes out of his knowledge of everything. He knows everything that is happening. You know, the amazing thing is that, you know, there's so many characters in the story we spoke about is eight character main characters in the story. And they're living their
own lives, most of them unrelated. But love brings all those eight lives together in harmony. At some point in order for something else to happen. Do you see the car or the going about the business, they just happen to lose their way. And they come and stumble across use of his in his own words, in his own situation, by the story comes together. And then that leads on to something else happens to him, just happens that the Aziz is there trying to get a gift for his wife. And he says I'll have that one please.
just so happens, different person, different life unrelated, a loved one altogether. Allah, He knows the height. Okay, here also the fact that used to be some didn't know what's happening to him.
He's going to be a prophet. jacobellis up didn't know what's happening. He's a prophet, if anyone was going to have knowledge of the hype, it would have been the prophets. True not yet. Clearly, this shows that they never had the knowledge of the unseen only Allah has the knowledge of the unseen last point here. Most people think they are in control. This is a point shallow, we'll talk about more later on. But the issue of this amazing, you know, act of worship of the heart does having the word call in a lot of reliance and trust in a line Allah we trust, you know, this is embedded within a foundation. What is that foundation, it is the belief that the whole affair is in
the hands of a lot.
Everything that happens in this world in existence, actually, is something that came from Allah. He was in full control, nothing happens except a lot decrease it to happen. Okay, so the person believes that my money though is coming from XYZ source, that source and it coming to me is actually in the hands of a lot.
That's the beginning of the worker, okay, that you feel that only Allah has the whole effect in his hand and he doesn't come out of his hand. It is in no way other than his hand here.
To make it easy. I give you an example. Imagine you're living on a desert island, okay? There's only let's say 100 or 200 people living there. You got no connection with our servers. You got no smartphone, no nothing. Okay, it's just you living on that desert island.
And you all those people there you say, look, we need to have a leader. Otherwise you must are killing it. So what is an order? Okay, let's appointment. A leader. Let's make him a king. Okay, so there's a king living on a desert island with you. And he is the only one who manufactures currency. Okay? He's got gold coins. And he says to all the people in the desert island, you want gold coins.
They say anyone gold coins is okay. To get this gold coin used to do X, Y and Zed. One of the things I want you to do is work.
Go and chop wood. Who wants that job, say all as a joke. Ah, so now this person is going to go and do this job. All the while he's thinking, where did the gold coins come from? Me chopping wood? Or is it coming from the king?
From the king, right? So he's thinking even if I do if I chop this wood, then the king will give it to me. Okay, I'll chop the wood. But me chopping the wood. Maybe I won't do anything. It's up to the king, isn't it? I could chop the wood all day long King say you know I don't give it to you. If he says that there's no way else I could get gold coins from true not. So he is always thinking the gold coins in the hands of the king. No one else can give them to me, only the king. So when he does those actions that is above the means. He never thinks for a second chopping the wood will automatically give you the money. He's always thinking, no. It's in the hands of the king. Do you
get this scenario? Okay, this is if you like to work, the foundation of the world to believe that America is in the hands of a lot.
outcomes and Angela. Okay, shall we stop here?
