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

my Lord, I Bellucci

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


00:00:27--> 00:00:27


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

Ay ay.

00:00:35--> 00:00:36

Rahim al hamdu Lillah

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

hamdulillah you're Delilah Manos salatu wa salam O Allah Ashraful and via even more silly Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi adjumani.

00:00:46--> 00:00:51

About brothers and sisters in Islam as Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:00:54--> 00:01:12

We are learning and analyzing, taking lessons from the story of use of alayhis salam, his use of Allah His salon, the son of Yaqoob alayhis salaam, the son of his help alayhis salaam, the son of Ibrahim alayhis, salaam,

00:01:13--> 00:01:17

alaikum, great honor a prophet, son of three prophets.

00:01:19--> 00:01:34

And this is the Prophet of Allah whom Allah subhanaw taala had given extraordinary beauty, half of the beauty of Adam alayhis salaam, and no one will ever reach the beauty of use of la sal and Adam alayhis salaam.

00:01:36--> 00:01:42

Allah also gave him the miracle of being able to interpret dreams precisely.

00:01:43--> 00:01:47

He never faltered in their precise interpretations, he also knew

00:01:48--> 00:01:49


00:01:50--> 00:01:55

to administer and manage the interpretations of dreams, what to do about it.

00:01:57--> 00:02:06

So not only did he know the meanings, he also knew what to do about it. He knew how to go about carrying out this dream

00:02:07--> 00:02:21

in a way that allowance him or what he has revealed to him. He also knew of certain things of the future which Allah revealed to him near future shots such as what's what's going to come to you tomorrow of provision.

00:02:23--> 00:02:41

Use of Allah His salon was one of those profits. In my last pan Tyler had chosen as one of also his messengers. He went through so much mental pain, and he also went through a lot of physical pain as well.

00:02:44--> 00:02:57

We finished off last week we ended where use of Allah is Salaam had been seduced by the woman of his master.

00:02:58--> 00:03:04

His master was a minister for the king for the Pharaoh and he was the treasure of the land.

00:03:06--> 00:03:14

His wife or his woman, seduced Musa alayhis salaam. And after that the women noble women, her friends

00:03:16--> 00:03:24

accused her of being a mad woman, because she's trying to seduce a slave of hers.

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

To them, it was unheard of that a woman of such high status

00:03:31--> 00:03:36

and wealth would desire a slave because a slave

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

to them is a nobody.

00:03:40--> 00:03:45

But this man was not any ordinary slave. He was used of Allah His salon.

00:03:46--> 00:04:03

So who's you heard about them, she called them in and she tested them herself. They shared some fruit and as they were cutting away their fruit and enjoying their conversations together, she asked us about a salon to come out in front of them. And she made him dress in beautiful clothing.

00:04:04--> 00:04:07

When they saw him, these women

00:04:08--> 00:04:15

they gratified him. They were shocked in absolute dismay, they became hypnotized to his looks and paralyzed

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

in their feelings in their body.

00:04:19--> 00:04:25

So much that as they were cutting the fruit, some of them didn't realize

00:04:26--> 00:04:31

that they were cutting through the fruit and slicing through their palms. With the knives

00:04:32--> 00:04:40

that we're looking at use valleys lm and didn't realize it was slicing their hands repeatedly from the beauty that Allah had given us the valley center.

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

Some of the past scholars assume that they have the opinion that use of alayhis salaam was so beautiful that he would cover his face often whenever he was out and about would cover his

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

for a reason that I lost, Montana only knows. So not many people actually laid eyes on him didn't see him. Others They say he was mostly trapped inside the home as a slave, and hardly anyone wanted to even ask about a slave. So hardly anyone noticed his looks, no one looked for him. And other scholars they consider. And this is probably too much exaggeration, Allahu Allah, but you might come across the entire set of books, that if a

00:05:29--> 00:05:56

that women used to find it difficult to look at UCLA, Sam from a close distance, because of the amount of radiance, his face head, so it's hard for them to close, this is there to move back because there's so much radiance of light coming out of his face. I think that's an exaggeration, because there's no delille to it, however, use Valley Sam was extraordinary in that beauty just to explain to you the extent of this, they gratified him and said,

00:05:57--> 00:06:09

No, by God, this is not a man. He is an angel, which is God sent from the heavens, and Angel descending upon us full of light.

00:06:12--> 00:06:22

Though, the woman said, who was his Master Master, she said, this is the man who knew blamed me for and look what happened to you.

00:06:24--> 00:06:30

And if he doesn't do what I am calling him to do, I'm calling him to do something

00:06:31--> 00:06:32

very dirty.

00:06:33--> 00:06:45

And that is Xena. I want to have Xena with this man. And if he doesn't respond for you, she said I am the one who seduced him for starsan. He refused. He resisted.

00:06:46--> 00:07:03

He protected himself from it. So she actually praised us to follow a salams actions. But at the same time, knowing that his actions are noble, and knowing that her actions are integral, she still followed her desires.

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

Her temptations and desires overtook her

00:07:08--> 00:07:13

naps as Allah describes it in an one of zoom ins.

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

And the naps in the way Allah has designed it.

00:07:22--> 00:07:27

He gave it the tendency to do evil

00:07:28--> 00:07:34

and explode in evil, and again with a tendency to follow in righteousness.

00:07:36--> 00:08:20

God the flemons or whoever purifies this knifes and here is a good example in use of La Selim about the meaning of purifying the knifes the knifes is like a child brothers and sisters. It requires you to train it and develop it and teach it. You need to punish it when it needs to be punished. And you need to reward it when it does something good. You are in fact punishing rewarding yourself but the cause of that is the nuts which is Allah has created with inside you. It would count explained enough, but it's a feeling with inside you which makes you feel that you want to do bad or do good to serve yourself in some way or another. Whether it be theft, lying,

00:08:21--> 00:08:32

hurting, murdering, cheating, stealing, or committing adultery or fornication, looking at harangue in secret or an open

00:08:33--> 00:08:58

speaking of Haram in secret or an open and so on and so forth, or the knifes tells you go and do good charity say a good word. pray to Allah to either use your time in Holland rather than Haram. This is the knifes as well. you're rewarded when it is patient in those times rewarded with Hillel entertainment, for example, reminded of a las pantallas pleasures upon you and Jenna and so on and so forth.

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

The woman of the Aziz of the minister she wanted to follow her desires that had overcome her.

00:09:06--> 00:09:33

And the women went to use valet salon trying to convince him to obey her because they didn't want him to end up in prison. So what did you surprise Sam do? He went in the Knights praying to Allah seeking his refuge from what they are calling him to do? seeking his refuge. We seek Allah His refuge for protection from things that harm us. This is one of the greatest harm because if he falls prey to it, he would have lost both

00:09:35--> 00:09:47

his loyalty in this world and his loyalty to Allah in the next. Because listen to what he says in his heart to our last pantalla he says, God, be humble in a

00:09:49--> 00:09:53

room. ne

00:09:56--> 00:09:57


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

ne ne ne

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

No, I

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


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

he said, oh my lord, the dungeon is more beloved to my heart than what they are calling me to do.

00:10:15--> 00:10:44

And if you did not deter them away from me and protect me from them, I may fall prey to them because I am weak. A sport in a in my knifes, my enough's as well because used by them is also a human. He has enough's like you and like you and me. He said, If you did not deter them from it, my knifes may get the better of me and I may fall prey to my own weakness. Yes, he's a prophet of Allah, but he is a human, and humans have weaknesses. And this is the great wisdom of Allah spent Allah sending prophets as humans like you and me.

00:10:47--> 00:10:59

The disbelievers at the time the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim used to say the following words, why? Why would God sent a man like us as a prophet? Couldn't he have chosen an angel?

00:11:01--> 00:11:48

why a man who walks the streets and the markets like every one of us, eats the food and needs and needs this for survival like every one of us, Allah says replies to them, if he sent you a prophet as an angel, you would have said, Well, he's an angel. We can't compete with an angel. We're humans. That's what Allah replied to them with. So he's a human in order to show us how to live our lives as humans, not as angels because we are humans made of dust and clay, we are not made of light like the angels, they are different to us. So life is fair and just and wise, use of Allah is Sallam said, I may fall prey to them in my weakness, and I may become one of the jailene, one of the ignorant ones.

00:11:49--> 00:12:24

Brothers and sisters, as Jasmine doesn't necessarily mean only someone who doesn't know pieces of information, ignorant. Ignorance in Arabic in the Quran, especially in Islamic terms has greater meanings than only that ignorance starts with lack of knowledge, but the greatest ignorance is a person's wrong actions. When they know they're wrong, and they still fall in the wrong, they know they're wrong and they still fall in the wrong their conscience tells them what's wrong, and they still go ahead and do it knowingly. This is an ignorant person.

00:12:25--> 00:12:27

One of bad character one of bad

00:12:29--> 00:12:35

at a carry man is one of bad to himself and to others. Corruption This is a J.

00:12:37--> 00:12:54

That's why it's called A through J. Hillier, the era of the Jay Z of jazz before the Prophet Mohammed Salah Selim. They did wrong things in evil things knowingly, and I didn't address the conscience to lead them in the right direction. They blind follow this is all General Ignorance

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

in all of its meaning.

00:12:58--> 00:13:02

So my brothers and sisters, a person who follows their lustful desires,

00:13:04--> 00:13:16

becomes a jade becomes a person of ignorance, of corruption, dirtiness, filth, in their mind, and in their body, and in the eyes of other people.

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

Which one of you here

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

would give their daughter or their son,

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

mother daughter, because you have more.

00:13:29--> 00:13:46

You have more control, more or less over the daughters according to Islam because you become the wealthy as a father as for the sons, they can overpower you and run away. Generally speaking, I know it happens to both, but which one of you would accept to let your daughter or your son marry someone

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

who is in the habit

00:13:51--> 00:13:54

of this type of lustful temptations?

00:13:56--> 00:14:11

Their eyes keep going out and about in places where they shouldn't go. Their hands touched places where they shouldn't be. They go to places and talk and be in places where they shouldn't be following their lusts. Which one of you will accept to marry someone like that?

00:14:13--> 00:14:32

A person like that Allah says in the Quran, as zanni Lion King, as any Lion King Eliza Nia, an adulterer men are fornicator will not marry except another or will not sleep or have intercourse with anyone other than another zania and adulterous or fornicators. And is there any I will not

00:14:33--> 00:14:41

have intercourse with another man except another zanni like corruption meets corruption, and these are the ones worth for each other.

00:14:42--> 00:15:00

A pure person is not worth for impure. an impure person is not deserving of a pure person unless they repent to Allah sincerely and leave what they had in the past. And even then when you know it, the self begins to tell you your mind tells you you know, you're reluctant to give that

00:15:00--> 00:15:32

person in marriage even when you know their past never repentant Is that right? So that's a person who's repented to a loss penalize forgiven? What about a person who's still indulging in such behaviors. This is a Jehan ignorant in the deepest of words, it makes you among the lowest of the low, you'd be up here and then suddenly you're down here. In the eyes of the people, this is filth, and you can feel it. You can feel it in yourself. When you begin to obey these desires. There is a man by the name of Imam Malik, Rama De La Jolla, LA. You all know the famous mm Malik.

00:15:34--> 00:15:45

He says that he used to memorize so quick like he'd look at a page once they say and when he turned he when he'd look at the other page, you'd have to cover

00:15:47--> 00:15:51

the former page so that his memorization is don't mix this up quickly memorized.

00:15:52--> 00:15:57

Maybe it's an exaggeration, but it's not an exaggeration to say that he had extraordinary memory.

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

He says one time I'm memorizing.

00:16:03--> 00:16:13

I looked up and a woman came past it said he says it in the form of poetry. He talks in his poem, a woman came past and I accidentally saw

00:16:14--> 00:16:17

parts of her shins at the bottom her legs.

00:16:20--> 00:16:22

I looked for a little while and then I turned away.

00:16:23--> 00:16:38

Just Just like subtly, I turned away. I came to memorize and my memory was taunted I couldn't memorize as well as before. It was less. He says in his poem, for Shaco to in our key in su a heavily

00:16:40--> 00:16:47

photoshopped any letter can milesi will color in Elma neuron, menorah la la, la la See,

00:16:49--> 00:16:51

I complain to my teacher waqia

00:16:53--> 00:16:57

my likeness in my memory than before.

00:16:58--> 00:17:05

Then he guided me to stay away from disobedience of Allah, He knew I told him what I'd done. This is disobedience stay away from it avoided.

00:17:07--> 00:17:14

Because the knowledge of Allah is made of his light it is known and the light of Allah cannot be given to the disobedient.

00:17:15--> 00:17:56

So you see your knowledge begins to go less your memory goes less your head of the Quran or Hadith go less, you come to remember you can't remember, and it becomes more and more. And your mind becomes cloudy. And not only in your religious knowledge, but even in other types of knowledge, worldly knowledge, your judgment becomes cloudy. And I don't want to give you examples. When I have time. I've had all those businessmen and people who are so called successful in the worldly life who followed their lesson temptations and look what became of them. The higher you go in position, the more dangerous it is to follow your lusts. And if they want to destroy a very popular person or not

00:17:56--> 00:18:07

as popular as celebrities, they want to destroy someone's reputation who is in a in an important high position such as a government position. What do they do, they begin to accuse them of sexual

00:18:09--> 00:18:36

mis conduct. So this is the types of even with celebrities, but they go to a further extent with pedophilia and so on and so forth. The point is sexual temptation if not used in the way a Lost Planet Allah has given it to us and Islam has the most pure form the most pure form in all of its ways. There might be brothers and sisters, you will go low in the sight of Allah and you will go low in the sight of people in the sight of yourself.

00:18:37--> 00:18:39

And your mind will be tempted

00:18:40--> 00:18:41

to misjudge things.

00:18:43--> 00:19:07

Yusuf Alayhi Salam said this and this is what he was afraid of this and in the hereafter. Allah replies by saying festa de banda horrible, his Lord responded to him for subtle fun who Qaeda Hoon, Allah prevented him from them in the who who has sent me Allah, Allah, Allah He is all things and knows all things he hears your da and he knows your problems.

00:19:08--> 00:19:35

This is a gift to use of Allah His salon. And I would like to, quote a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam which is in Sahih Muslim and Buhari but just in different order. mentioned in both books however, the Hadith is about the seven people who will be shaded on the day of judgment on the day when there will be no shade but alas shade. And these seven types of people are mm hmm i didn't i just ruler,

00:19:36--> 00:19:40

a young person who was raised in the worship of Allah in his youth or her youth.

00:19:41--> 00:19:54

A man whose heart is cling to the messages. So when they enter and they exit, they look forward to coming back to people who love each other only for the sake of Allah when they meet, they meet on net when they depart, they depart on that.

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

A person who gives him charity in secret only this desiring the pleasure of Allah

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

So much so metaphorically speaking, his left hand doesn't know what his right hand even gave him charity. A person who remembers a lot in the deepness of the night, and begins to call upon Allah, whether in hope or fear, and then his eyes begin to tear

00:20:15--> 00:20:16

out of remembrance to Allah.

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

A person a man or a woman, but here in the context is a man whom a woman with status and beauty

00:20:27--> 00:20:35

caused them to do heroin with it to the bed. And he says, In the awful law, I feel a lot.

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

Is that seven?

00:20:39--> 00:20:39

Anyone counting?

00:20:42--> 00:20:52

That seven, I think we counted seven. But the point of that is a man who a woman with status and beauty calls him to it and he says, I fear Allah in your heart.

00:20:54--> 00:21:11

does it apply to the women? Yes, to a lesser extent, however, and that's because the biological nature which allows pantalla had created the two genders in but it applies also to the woman. For a lot men process. I mentioned it to the men here because it often and most likely occurs to the men.

00:21:14--> 00:21:25

Brothers and sisters, the story moves on use of alayhis salam, what happened to him, he entered the prison with the will of Allah. Allah, Allah tells us in Nakata en

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

su mabhida.

00:21:28--> 00:21:29


00:21:30--> 00:21:31

Dena is genuine.

00:21:35--> 00:22:02

Then it occurred to them after they had seen the signs that they should imprison him for a time who it occurred to the Minister, his master and to his woman, his wife, it occurred to them that, you know, with all this news going around about us, my woman seducing him, and all that stuff, it's about to cause me a bad reputation, because as I said before, he was a man of high position in the government, such such

00:22:03--> 00:22:14

you know, such a rumor is no good for him. So they saw that it was best be fitting to lie to the people accuse us of Allah His Salon of seducing

00:22:15--> 00:22:32

the Aziz, his wife, instead. And so, in the Hadith, it says, or one one narration it says that they went around with a big drum, calling the people in the streets saying, Come here, your serve, has seduced the woman of the minister.

00:22:33--> 00:22:41

And so when the news went about like that, in order to change and reverse the situation, Yusuf Ali Salim found himself in the prison.

00:22:45--> 00:22:59

This is actually the will of Allah as we said, It is not the minister or anyone else. It is only because you as far as salaam sought help from Allah and Allah came to his aid. But again, there is actually a bigger plan.

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

Why he entered the prison.

00:23:02--> 00:23:16

This is only in the course of action. Because this is the quarter on quarter of our brothers and sisters in Islam. You should always remember, no matter what happens to you in life, whether it is good or bad, your trust is in Allah.

00:23:17--> 00:23:36

You say Oh Allah, I trust in what you are doing. Whether it is a punishment for me, I repent. If it is a trial for me, I will persevere but I know that at the end of it good will come out good will come out. This is the state of the believer in the prophets I send them became amazed of in one Hadith he says I'm amazed of him.

00:23:37--> 00:23:39

A law that says

00:23:40--> 00:23:44

why don't find out now I was see Jenna fed Diana Thawne

00:23:47--> 00:23:54

in me out army seal fun law

00:23:55--> 00:24:05

was welcome on and follow me, Lonnie Mino filco see who has

00:24:09--> 00:24:13

never been beaten with me.

00:24:15--> 00:24:20

Nina mosinee which means

00:24:21--> 00:24:25

and they entered into the prison with him two youths, two young men.

00:24:26--> 00:24:30

One of them said, I dreamt that I was pressing wine.

00:24:32--> 00:24:52

And the other said, I dreamt that I was carrying bread on my head of which the birds were eating. Tell us their interpretation for we see you are of the righteous use of Allah you Ceylon from his character and the way he presented himself in the prison. Immediately the people of the prison all of them

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

they realized the righteousness in use of Allah His center. These were criminals. These were criminals.

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

I tell you brothers and sisters, if you and I, especially the young ones among the males, especially,

00:25:07--> 00:25:54

we live in a world where Thug Life is taunting young men, Thug Life, especially with a life of rap. It is accompanied with this popular music, the pop culture of rap, and the likes. And it calls you to be violent in some ways. And it calls you to rebel in other ways. It also causes you to degrade women in other ways as well. You just have to watch the clips don't do that. But the clips will tell you a lot about them, as I was told, and obviously you see them on the commercials. You know what I'm talking about. Third life, my dear brothers, whoever is onto that road or assistance or onto that road, be aware of it. When you are a friend of a thug And you call yourself a thug. That friend

00:25:54--> 00:26:42

of yours is not a friend, they have no friends, and they will take any opportunity to ruin your life. If they can get a benefit out of it. They will blackmail you, they will accuse you, they will stand you up so long as they have a benefit from it. However, the hardest thug on the face of the earth, if you are righteous, and the good believer, they will respect you. They will respect you. I've been to the prisons before and I know of brothers who've gone to the prisons to give Dawa to them. They always tell me brother, the Muslim criminals in the prison, have utter respect has have enormous respect for us. When we go in there, they gather around you. They monitor their words, they

00:26:42--> 00:26:48

monitor their actions, they ask you questions of relief, they want to be saved, they want help. They come to you.

00:26:49--> 00:26:50

And I will respect you.

00:26:51--> 00:27:07

Because Allah lifts the person who is righteous to Allah. Allah says to these angels, I love so and so. So love him, then the angels say we love him. He says that the gibreel and GPRS and him loves him the angels love him, then all the people of Earth and Allah loves will Oh, he will cause them to love him.

00:27:10--> 00:27:20

So use of Allah is Salaam became that figure in the prison. And on another note, brothers and sisters, this shows us that no one on the face of the earth

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

should be deprived. The Tao of Allah Spano dad, the teaching of a lost pantallas message.

00:27:30--> 00:27:51

You can never say I hear of brothers or sisters talking about others who are criminals or they've got a bad life. They've gone into that ugly life and they say that and deserve to be guided. I've even heard some people make a dua against them, saying Oh Allah, please never guide them. This is not a good dog. Allah guides whomever He wills and he leaves Australia whomever he knows deserves it whomever He wills.

00:27:52--> 00:27:58

Now, every single person should be looked at as a potential Muslim as a potential death. repentant

00:28:00--> 00:28:02

than ever. This is not in your hands.

00:28:03--> 00:28:08

And remember, no highlight his salon. The people who followed him are among the lowest

00:28:10--> 00:28:38

in status, and the people of highest status said to him will become Muslims and follow you if they get out. We went mixed with them know how to send him said never Who am I to choose who to guide and who not to when the Prophet Muhammad SAW said I'm turned away from the blind man, you know, not out of degradation to him, but he thought that the noble people of Qureshi are more important at this stage. Allah sent a verse in the Quran Abba, so what I wonder, he found and turned away from him when the blind man came to him.

00:28:39--> 00:28:53

So any person is a potential believer, and this religion is not ours. It's for Allah and we are to pass it on. So criminals Yes, they need us. They need us. And Yusuf Ali Salaam began to call them to the dean.

00:28:54--> 00:29:14

When they knew that use valet Salaam knew the interpretations of dreams and so on from knowing him for a few days, they told him about this dream that each one of them have had. One was pressing one the other ones so there was carrying bread on his head, and the birds were eating from it. They wanted the interpretation of it a righteous man, listen to what UCLA said and replies. He says

00:29:15--> 00:29:17

La la la de como

00:29:18--> 00:29:34

todos de Connie in Tacoma Beto when he called La da Kuma the nikuman lemonnier of B in Nita rock to me, let

00:29:35--> 00:29:36

me know Naveen

00:29:38--> 00:29:39

filati homecare,

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

which means

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

he said before the next meal comes to you I will certainly reveal to you the interpretations. Like if a meal comes through I'll tell you if it's bitter or sour or sweet or whatever or salty. This is from what my lord

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

has taught me when he first began to do was he gave him an introduction to his ability to interpret. But he didn't interpret their dreams yet, before going on to interpreting their dreams, he is now slowly directing them in another pathway, a pathway of teaching them something that will benefit them have more importance. What is that? Introducing a lot to them. He says, everything you see of me, I have been taught by Allah. So don't look at me as someone special. The special one is the one who sent me. That's what he's telling them. So a connection. If you think I'm great, let me introduce you to the one who made me, Allah, if you think that what I have of abilities and skills

00:30:43--> 00:31:23

is amazing. Let me tell you who gave them to me and if he did not give them to me, I would not have them. So I do not praise myself with what I have. This is a lesson for all of us, brothers or sisters, to be humble, and never to take, you know, be proud, as in as in haughtiness in an evil way. boast about what you have, what you have is from Allah, whether it is money, wealth, a good body looks an eloquent tongue, a particular skill in sport, a noise, voice, whatever it is, never boast about it, and never show off. Remember that the one who gave it to you can take it away like that, like that.

00:31:25--> 00:31:36

And the prophet SAW sent them said Mantovani, nahi Rafa, whoever humbles themselves for the sake of Allah, Allah will surely lift them high in status in this world in the hereafter.

00:31:37--> 00:32:26

And remember, Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu when he became the Khalifa, he sent a letter to the emperor of Rome of Byzantine. He said to him, when he called him to Islam and called them to this, the Emperor became boastful. He said to him in the letter after giving him Tao, I said, attack the Kabbalah. Are you feeling yourself boastful above allow your Creator gave eta kabara Allah He wanted in his ultimate measurable limiting. How can you be boastful above a lot of show off when you came out of where urine, urine comes out from twice, you came out from that same place twice, where urine comes out from first from your father than from your mother, when you were born? Remember, Allah

00:32:26--> 00:32:37

says in the Quran, and then he gave him the verse, but yet the Quran insano Moloch. Man remember where they were created from holy coming man in depth. He was created from

00:32:39--> 00:32:41

a gushing type of fluid.

00:32:42--> 00:32:48

The type of fluid that if you were to be seen with it on your clothing, you would be embarrassed.

00:32:50--> 00:32:51

This is what we were made from.

00:32:53--> 00:33:06

So don't boast over what you have. And Humble yourself. Allah will lift you my dear brothers and sisters. You are what you have is from Allah. There is nothing from me. Nothing for me. Everything is for Allah, everything's from Allah.

00:33:07--> 00:33:14

Always remember that. I am level with the ground. And lastly, Armando Catalano. When he was dying,

00:33:15--> 00:33:17

his son placed his head on his lap.

00:33:19--> 00:33:26

Dying, and his son Abdullah placed his head on his lap, and his father on the line being the Khalifa and the role model.

00:33:27--> 00:33:31

He said he had given his life to someone else at that time.

00:33:35--> 00:33:40

And he said, put my head on the ground, my son,

00:33:41--> 00:33:48

his son said, Father, I'd like it to be up on my lap, he said, put my head on the ground, where it belongs.

00:33:49--> 00:34:00

I was created from the soil, and to it I shall return. Today I am not the leader, but a humble servant of Allah. So he placed his head on the soil. This is how we die there'll be a long line.

00:34:02--> 00:34:14

From it we were created to return informing us that no matter how he was of the highest status, as a leader of the believers, or the Allah and showing people even I am nothing without Allah.

00:34:15--> 00:34:31

So Yusuf Ali Salam is telling them what I have is from Allah He taught me this I didn't know for myself. So don't thank me for what I'm about to tell you. Thank Allah your Creator for what I'm about to tell you. Okay everyone, so the gratitude is belongs to our last panel at odd

00:34:32--> 00:34:47

and if you want to praise someone, say it to them, but say the following words Oh, what great things which Allah has given you. Well, no zakia Allah Allah had and there is no one better than Allah. So add these words to a person when they say or Masha Allah Allah has willed and given you.

00:34:48--> 00:34:54

So when you want to praise someone or praise you and try and never praise yourself, Allah is the one who knows truly who is righteous.

00:34:55--> 00:34:58

Then most Yusuf Ali Salaam goes on by saying

00:35:06--> 00:35:15

This is from what my lord has taught me. Surely I have forsaken the ways of a people who do not believe in Allah. And they need to believe in the hereafter.

00:35:17--> 00:35:22

He's telling them with all the things that you've seen in me, and you've called me righteous, and you've seen his abilities in me.

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

I left the religion of a people who did not believe in the hereafter. He's not talking about his father. He's talking about the tribes that are connected to his to him.

00:35:36--> 00:35:48

A lot of them rejected the beliefs of their fathers and their forefathers that the prophets meaning Jacobian and the prophets and Ibrahim, he said, I left their belief, I have the opportunity to follow my, you know, my,

00:35:50--> 00:35:52

my tribe, my peoples tradition,

00:35:54--> 00:36:04

but I did not because they disbelieved in a line hereafter. So I rejected the traditions. And I followed he says, In the Quran, what about what do you mean letter?

00:36:07--> 00:36:11

He, he is

00:36:14--> 00:36:17


00:36:18--> 00:36:19


00:36:20--> 00:36:22

Shea, then he can

00:36:27--> 00:36:29

see your lacking

00:36:30--> 00:36:31

or lacking

00:36:33--> 00:36:34

Xena Yes.

00:36:36--> 00:36:51

And I followed the religion of my father's Abraham and this hat and Jaco, it is not ours to associate anything with a law. This is from a laws bounty upon us and upon the people, but most of the people are not grateful.

00:36:52--> 00:36:58

So now he has addressed them about a law and he's famous upon us and guiding us to the straight path. Then he says

00:37:00--> 00:37:04

yeah, I saw he may you see Jenny babble.

00:37:06--> 00:37:07


00:37:09--> 00:37:10

and on and upon.

00:37:11--> 00:37:12

mad at

00:37:15--> 00:37:17

me in

00:37:24--> 00:37:26

some may to move

00:37:29--> 00:37:29

to more

00:37:42--> 00:37:47

sunako on in, in, in, in.

00:37:53--> 00:37:53


00:37:58--> 00:38:01

Dino, Mo, Anakin.

00:38:03--> 00:38:04

Xena, yeah.

00:38:06--> 00:38:07

Which means,

00:38:08--> 00:38:10

oh, my fellow prisoners

00:38:12--> 00:38:14

are many different types of Lords

00:38:15--> 00:38:16


00:38:17--> 00:38:20

or Allah, the One, the dominant.

00:38:22--> 00:39:06

What you are worshiping other than him only names which you have made up you and your father's, for which Allah has sent down no authority. He didn't teach us these names. Most surely. The command is for none but for Allah. He had commanded that you shall not worship any other than him. This is the true religion. It's true way of life. But most people just do not know. They don't want to know. They don't seek the knowledge. They're too busy with other things. In this there is great wisdom. My brothers and sisters in this one verse is enormous understanding and meaning of the proper meaning of the heat of monotheism, the worship of one true God, and the rejection of all false deities, and

00:39:06--> 00:39:24

false pieces of information which make partners with Allah, even if they come from the most beloved people to you, and the people your honor and respect to such as your father's, your mother's your relatives, your uncles and Auntie's, your ancestors, your people of authority,

00:39:25--> 00:39:30

even your shapes, but shapes will never do something like that. But in my cutting back in Lebanon,

00:39:31--> 00:39:53

and in other countries, they call certain people shapes that do not deserve that name. They are not knowledgeable. And they are people who have taken on the word name of shape and address like shapes, but they teach the people actions of sorcery, making partners with Allah and innovative matters, such as calling upon the dead, calling upon.

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

You know, people who were called by righteous names taking their children to

00:40:00--> 00:40:22

their graves for healing, doing actions of sorcery in the name of good. And this is all this all comes with shake in a las panatela teaching them traditions such as as we said before knocking on wood to keep away bad luck. This is based on Shinnecock people who thought that spirits used to go into trees. So these the hang up and bless themselves from trees and wood is made of trees

00:40:23--> 00:40:36

and so on and so forth swearing oath by other than Allah such as swearing on my mother's grave, they say, swearing on my honor. swearing on my moustache, they say this in Arabic terms, we're here to swear to be they say,

00:40:37--> 00:40:41

by the honor of my moustache, Munger myself, and so on and so forth.

00:40:43--> 00:40:49

This is all part of following conditions of past ancestors that Allah did not send down at all.

00:40:52--> 00:41:01

We have in my father's village in Lebanon, a grave, which is probably fits, it can fit about, I'd say about five people

00:41:02--> 00:41:39

in a row. So how big it is, and the name of the person they've given in that grave is murmur, murmur. I've never heard of this name in the Quran, or in any way in the traditions of Islam murmur but I heard about it in the books of the Christians. And they say he is a noble when he of God, they take their kids there for healing. If the woman wants to get pregnant she goes there if they they're not even allowed to touch any of the trees around them because they say this is a sanctuary for the Prophet Mara Mara in that grave. So no one touches the trees even if they need him

00:41:40--> 00:41:59

so these are names are just to give an example I'd like to take myself so I don't you know offend anyone. These are names which they bring about and customs and traditions which they bring about a lot tells us in the core and why do you worship other than what Allah has brought you to the people of of Croatia and they used to say Bell Naboo man and Faina

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

Allah he ever

00:42:02--> 00:42:39

been a tabula And finally, we are going to follow what we found our forefathers on. And this is even within Muslims. Sadly, today, they call themselves Muslims. And they say we submit ourselves to align His laws let you know in the law, Muhammad Rasul Allah, but when you look at the actions inside their religion, they have taken on customs and traditions of their forefathers and their country where they come from. And they don't care whether it fits with the sooner or not, that just take it on and do it and insist on others and they get upset with you if you don't do it. And I will cut you off of their relationships of their bloodline. If you don't follow what they do in their

00:42:39--> 00:43:19

traditions, whether it be marriage, or celebrations, or some type of eating procedure. It has got something to do with the religion. I'm talking about. I'm not talking about customs that have nothing to do with the deen. Such as you know, these people like to eat this way or these people like to dress this way so long as it's highlighted within Islamic rites, customs are okay. But when it has something to do with worship, and then within the religion, then it becomes haram if it doesn't agree with our religion. So now the point is Yusuf alayhi wa sallam he called the prisoners to Allah, He gave them that hour of dough. He said two things. Number one, once you have gained the

00:43:19--> 00:43:23

trust, and you have gained the love,

00:43:24--> 00:43:56

well, not necessarily the love, but you've gained the trust and the friendship of other people. Now they like speak to you, then that is when it is your Tao is beneficial. You call them to the dean. I know of some people, they meet someone for the first time, and they still don't even know them. And they say to them, I invite you to accept Islam. You haven't even taught them anything, that I know anything about your deen. In fact, I remember one person stood up, held the Quran and said, You people

00:43:57--> 00:44:10

are full of corruption, filth, and all you want is degradation for women by taking off their hijab, you want this and you ate the swine. After saying all of this, you said he said and now I invite you to accept the Quran.

00:44:11--> 00:44:34

So you put the other person down and then you invite him to your religion, they're gonna look at you and say, I will never enter a religion that teaches you this type of manners, this type of character. So Allah says no grandfather could in Nevada declare the benefit that benefits the peace, the remembrance that benefits the people use that. Don't just cut and paste anything and just throw anything at people.

00:44:35--> 00:44:40

All right, have some wisdom with them to your side. And the best thing is with neighbors.

00:44:41--> 00:44:59

Show them some concern send them consideration. When you make some kind of a food it's nice. pass it on to them say hello say this say that help them and when they see this kindness from you, then slowly you are able to give them data for character of Islam is down in itself. And then you can use your verbal

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

comments with them.

00:45:03--> 00:45:12

For example, I had a neighbor who sees me wear these, you know, I come out of my house wearing this outfit every now and then. He's a Christian Lebanese, when we first got to meet him.

00:45:13--> 00:45:34

It was Hello, how are you talking about Lebanon talking about this talking about, you know, common things, having a cup of coffee together. And then one day, the neighbor said to me, whatever you are on, stay on your religion. Stay on your Amen. And I'm wondering why he said that. He saw the peace and the serenity in his outfit, and in the character that we showed him.

00:45:36--> 00:45:53

So then I was ready to give at least a hint about our team. And the first thing I say to them is inner our core answers that you are from the people of the book, and to Al Khattab are the people of the book. And that is because we share some commonalities in the books.

00:45:54--> 00:46:29

And so we went into a small discussion. Next time, inshallah we're going to a bigger discussion, but Yusuf Ali Salaam, this is what Allah is telling us earn the trust from the people, and then give them down. And the first thing you start off with is what issues pertaining to the hate to Allah and to his words. So you don't go ahead and start with talking about for example, you know, pork or wine unnecessarily? Or talk about the beard straightaway. Why don't you get everything and return it back to our last panel just as useful. I said, I've said everything I know is from a lot. So now introducing them to our last panel.

00:46:31--> 00:46:55

After telling him these things, he was ready to interpret the dreams for them. Now he's taking the responsibility off his shoulders, and giving it to them in clarity. Now Allah mentions a few verses about it, but obviously they went into a long discussion about a lot and though he'd then when they were ready, Yusuf Alayhi Salam gave them the promise. He helped them with what they wanted of less importance. Yeah, so he Bay You see, Jenny

00:46:56--> 00:46:58

had to Kumar is cleaning on bamboo.

00:46:59--> 00:47:08

What am thermophiles level fedtech Kunal Ponyo min Roxy kuliah mo NaVi fetus does the

00:47:11--> 00:47:26

oath fellow prisoners as for one of you, he shall pour wine for his master. And as for the other, he shall be crucified, and the bird shall eat of his head. The matter where upon you inquired, is decreed.

00:47:27--> 00:47:40

Not only did he tell them the interpretation of their dreams, but he also told them again, what the dream that you have seen is from a law, he has decreed this matter. There is no changing it, I cannot advise you anymore.

00:47:41--> 00:48:24

Allah has made Khader things that are going to occur for a reason. And some things we have no control over. We submit to Allah and we try our best and whatever we have control over. And truly, they did become that the first prisoner was taken out and he was crucified and the birds ate from his head. Some say they became Muslims, Allahu Alem, the second prisoner was saved out and truly he became the wine. I don't know what you call it the wine preparer of the Pharaoh of the king, the Pharaoh. Look how Allah Allah is bringing things closer and closer. For what has been destined for Yusuf Alayhi Salam in the form of dream he saw when he said I saw 11 planets or stars and the sun

00:48:24--> 00:48:36

and the moon prostrating To me, the dream has not yet been fulfilled right up to this point. All of what has occurred, is is going in line with what is about to come from the will of Allah Spano Todd

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

Yusuf alayhi salam, when he saw the next prisoner leave.

00:48:52--> 00:48:53

He said to him,

00:48:54--> 00:48:59

mentioned me to your master is currently in Arabic,

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

mentioned me to the king and tell him that I am imprisoned without any crime or wrong.

00:49:06--> 00:49:10

Can you tell you a king that plays because the king doesn't know my state.

00:49:12--> 00:49:17

And this verse, my brothers and sisters, is indicating to us supporting evidence

00:49:18--> 00:49:21

that we are allowed to seek help

00:49:22--> 00:49:26

from people in means other than Allah subhanaw taala.

00:49:27--> 00:50:00

And that is not contrary to the reliance on the last panel. When I said other than Allah, I didn't mean that your heart is not connected to Allah, you ask a friend for help. But you know, that he cannot or she cannot help you. If Allah doesn't will it so long as you have that belief, you're allowed to ask people for help, so long as those people are able to help you like within their power. You don't come and ask a person and say, Please forgive my sins. This is not in the power of any human being, deserving the power of Allah. So doing that issue, but you come and ask a person who is a doctor, can you please

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

Please advise me of medicine and administer your work on me so I may be cured. This is allowed because Allah is the one who gave the ability to a doctor to have some control in that way. But you must always know deep inside that if it wasn't for a law, the doctor cannot heal you in any way. And if Allah doesn't want to the doctor cannot heal you. If you have that you're okay. by seeking things from people who they cannot help you with flying forgiveness, making into paradise saving you from hellfire. It's only with Allah subhanho wa Taala do I and so on and so forth.

00:50:31--> 00:50:42

When he asked the friend to ask the king, to mention him, the shaitan made use of Allah is silent fig made the prisoner forget what Yusuf Alayhi Salam had asked him.

00:50:44--> 00:51:23

Now yes, the shaitan made him forget. But at the same time, Allah allowed it to be using the shaitan has no power over the prophets. But alas, my dialer gave allowed for the shaitan to make the prisoner forget what use valet cylinder asked him to do. The scholars tells there are two reasons for that. The first and foremost reason is that there is the will of Allah, a wisdom that Allah wants to bring about from it. Only Allah knows the wisdom in that. The second one, the scholars say that based on an aeration that a lot of it's a hit or not. But the narration is there, that when you ask the prisoner to mention him to his king,

00:51:25--> 00:51:30

every lesson and came to us very silent in the prison. And he said to him, yeah, you so

00:51:33--> 00:51:35

when your brother's threw you in the well?

00:51:36--> 00:51:54

Who is the one that saved you? He said, Allah said when you were taken into slavery, who is the one that chose good masters for you? He said, Allah, say when the women seduced you, who is the one that saved you from it, he said, Allah, he said, What prevented you from asking Allah Now, again,

00:51:55--> 00:52:23

although it's allowed to ask others, the prophets are a little bit different. I ask Allah completely and sincerely, and obviously is why Sam did have that in him. But Allah had a wisdom from it, to show us via a cilium, something which used by Sam can understand, Allah says in the Quran, Fela BTC Genie Biddle icynene. And so he remained in the prison for several more years. Another lesson that we can get out of it is, Allah wills things and we sometimes cannot understand why.

00:52:25--> 00:52:28

And we may suffer a little bit more, this suffering is good for us.

00:52:30--> 00:52:49

The prophets are a role model for us. If you think that you've gone through a lot of pain, and it's been a long time, look at Yusuf alayhi salam. And remember the reason why I was telling the story to Prophet Mohammed Salah he was going through a lot of pain for a long while. So he's telling him, look what happened to us, and he was patient. And I'm giving you this to comfort you with

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

my brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:52:56--> 00:53:13

Build the icynene means several years. The word builder or build on build ah in Arabic refers to any number between three and nine. So we can safely safely say that use for a synonym stayed in prison for anywhere between three years to nine years.

00:53:15--> 00:53:17

Allah knows best. How many is exactly.

00:53:20--> 00:53:22

Then something extraordinary happened.

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

Another means which Allah is bringing about within his color, when he wants something to come out. The Pharaoh or the king saw a dream. And by the way, the pharaoh we're talking about here is not the pharaoh that is mentioned in the Quran at the time of musala his son, he comes later on but a lot of dresses. The other one that time was that as Pharaoh because the man is not significant enough to have his name being mentioned. So Allah said the Pharaoh, the so called Pharaoh, but this Pharaoh was different. Some say that this Pharaoh followed the religion of use of Valley center, but he was a good Pharaoh. He was a good king adjust ruler.

00:54:01--> 00:54:05

The Pharaoh saw a dream. Allah says in the Quran

00:54:06--> 00:54:12

00:54:40--> 00:54:43

Allah says and the king said, not the pharaoh the king.

00:54:45--> 00:54:47

Because he was worthy of being a king.

00:54:48--> 00:54:59

I saw seven fat cows. In my dream. He saw seven fat cows in his dream and seven lean cows.

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

Were devouring the fat cows.

00:55:03--> 00:55:10

Seven skinny cows were eating the seven fat cows. Likewise, I saw seven green ears of corn,

00:55:12--> 00:55:21

corn plants, and seven withered ones, seven corn plants that were withered. They were dry, no fruit in them nothing.

00:55:22--> 00:55:33

Oh chiefs now he's addressing the people around him who in Judah so much knowledge and had high status Oh chiefs explained to me my dream if you can interpret it.

00:55:34--> 00:55:36

They said the Chiefs

00:55:37--> 00:55:42

Carlos corlew albula. lm these are just confused dreams.

00:55:43--> 00:55:51

woman that when in Atlanta, maybe I really mean and we know nothing of the interpretation of such type of dreams.

00:55:52--> 00:56:10

Allah doesn't want them to answer it. This is not for you, oh chiefs. Now it is time to bring about the one who deserves to be there. And he is used to follow his setup. Then, he said, while con and Latina German who met with Decker about their own matin and our own a bill committed really for Arsenal.

00:56:11--> 00:56:28

Then said the one who had been released, remember the prisoner? Now he remembered Yusuf alayhi salam. He said, who remembered after a long time, I will inform you of its interpretation. So send me forth. Okay. I can tell you what it means. Send me he said go.

00:56:29--> 00:56:33

He was going back to use of Allah his sin, He remembered him.

00:56:34--> 00:56:46

And Allah tells us in the Quran that he went to use by Sam, and he starts off with the name use of what are you also the only use of the truthful one. So he was so excited. Oh, use of the use of the truth for one.

00:56:48--> 00:57:03

Please interpret us the dream of Tina expound give us your knowledge of seven fat cows, which seven lean ones are eating them and seven green, green ears and seven others dry, that I might return to the people that they may know.

00:57:04--> 00:57:19

So use five seven gave him the interpretation. Listen to what he said. He said, for seven years, you shall sow continuously, meaning you'll have lots of crop, you will sow and you won't stop you'll have abundance for seven years.

00:57:20--> 00:57:40

Then what you reap of the harvest, leave it on the ear. Meaning These are what farmers know what you reap what you take out of your crops and your harvest. Leave the grains inside of their mother's stem, leave it inside, don't open, keep that keep them inside.

00:57:42--> 00:57:55

Except a little Where have you eat, only open up what you really need to eat, don't open up anymore and store the rest away but within their mother stem closed.

00:57:56--> 00:58:02

So that can be protected from parasites, worms, beetles, insects preserved.

00:58:06--> 00:58:11

Then, after that, they shall come upon us seven hard years

00:58:13--> 00:58:29

in which you shall devour all that you have reserved for them, except a little UK install. Since seven years are going to come that are going to be very hard, you're going to hardly be able to grow your crops. He said you are going to need

00:58:30--> 00:58:45

you are going to need the amount of what you ate in the last seven years again, you will eat all of what you what you reap in those next seven years. And plus you will need more except the ones you've stored earlier. So keep them stored.

00:58:49--> 00:58:55

Then they shall come after that a year in which two people have rain and in which they press wine one year.

00:58:57--> 00:59:40

Brothers and sisters, he said that there will be seven years of good and healthy harvest followed by seven years of drought and famine, then they shall come after that a year in which the people have rain, and in which they press wine. They should store up all the grains of the first seven years in the ears except what they ate. They should also so small amounts of seeds in the second seven years, because it probably won't, would not grow due to the shortage of the rain. So it would be waste of grains. You see what he's telling them. He's telling them, you know those grains that you stored, don't use them to plant again, because they reuse the plants right? He said take a little bit and

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

plant because it's not going to be in a frame for them to grow and you're going to waste all of what you stored. So take only what you need from what you stored in the last seven years and plant a little bit of them again, keep what you've stored. What Why am I repeating this to you? This is the extraordinary ability which Allah had given us.

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

He said, and not only did he know the interpretations of the dreams, but he even knew how to manage and tell them how to take care of themselves. They don't die of hunger.

01:00:08--> 01:00:48

This is extraordinary. When the king heard about that, he was taken to an extraordinary shock, surprise, he was so impressed. He said to him, Go and get me him. Come, bring him to me. Now listen to our laws turning things around. When he went there, the prisoner, he said to him, the King once you use if I said, I knew that this was good news, but there was something wrong. You're so funny. Ali Salam is still accused of something which he didn't do. He refused to get out of the prison until he was proven innocent till everybody knew.

01:00:50--> 01:01:06

So he said to him, color j in Arabic. He said Go back to your Lord the king for celluma ban. Oh, nice. What electrical panel idea when asked him concerning the women who cut their palms, everybody knew about it, you see, so I asked him about that.

01:01:08--> 01:01:11

I want him to get into I want them to get into a trial.

01:01:13--> 01:01:39

in Nairobi, bkd Hina alim. My Lord, meaning my minister, not Allah, the Minister is master. He knows the truth about what these women were plotting. So what is he telling him saying, oh, King, get those women and get your minister and question them. Your minister knows what I'm talking about, meaning get his wife after as well. And they will tell you the whole truth.

01:01:40--> 01:01:52

When he when the king got this, he called them and put them to trial. And a law tells us the women came along first. The ones who cut their palms. corner and they said hash lilla

01:01:53--> 01:02:01

God forbid man alumna lay him in so we don't know any bad or guilt upon him.

01:02:04--> 01:02:13

The women that confessed the women admitted because now they're afraid. So they told the truth. They said no, no use of is absolutely clean.

01:02:15--> 01:02:21

So they brought the minister and he also told them the truth. The wife came along, and she said

01:02:22--> 01:02:27

the house hustle, Huck. Now the truth has been made. Undoubtedly clear

01:02:29--> 01:02:34

and araga to one FC. I am the one who seduced him

01:02:35--> 01:02:42

upon himself. What in the hall? Let me know so deeply. He is among the truthful ones.
