hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Continuing from where we left off on the Prophet series
so after Ibrahim alayhis salam is death
and loot Alayhis Salam
and ismail Eid Allah His Sudan
is help Alayhis Salam, the brother of his married, lived on a little bit more.
Had Iacob and he died as well is how Karla has Salam
is how kala has sinned and married a woman by the name of Rachel.
That's his wife, who was the mother of Iacob Elisa.
Jacoba alayhis. Salam is the son of his help.
Your Kobs name in biblical terms, they say Jacob, because the name Jakob is not an Arabic name. It's an Hebrew name.
And the according the Hebrew language means
who strives in the name of God,
it also means a man of God.
Abdullah, slave of Allah, all these meanings
Jacoba Alayhis Salam later on,
was given the name Israel In
and Israel is also a Hebrew name. Meaning the same as the one who fights in the Cause of Allah the one who strives in the Cause of Allah and man of God.
Jacoba Alayhis Salam grew up being raised by his father is Huck
and he had a brother named Reese who
also Hebrew name Esau.
These names which I'm getting, they're not from the Quran, or the Sunnah they are from the Torah.
The Old Testament.
And so, his brother was a shepherd, Redhead, and he was rough.
That's the meaning of the name and Esau and Jacoba is Salam. I'm sorry, I'm going to read define the in Hebrew the name yah code means soft,
hearted, kind hearted,
and all perfect.
The name is Raja eel means the man of God or the one who strives in the name of Allah.
And Jacoba Alayhis Salam grew up
and married, as I said, not as I said, he married another woman called Rebecca.
These are names that we hear about in the West. Again, these are names taken from the Torah.
He married another wife, a second wife, as well in his lifetime named Leah.
And he had to concubines.
A concubine in those days,
was normal everywhere in the world, they practice this, where if there was a war,
and women were left out of that war, they had no place to go, wasn't like today, taking you back 4000 years, they had to be looked after in a certain way. So whoever you can either marry them or you can take them as concubines, so they're almost like a wife.
And they're not a slave.
But they are concubines, something
a little bit below the wife so they don't inherit, for example from the husband like the wife does.
And Islam told us to look after them, if we were in that time or in a case like that, and to treat them with utmost value and respect. She has a higher value than a normal woman
to that man, but a bit of a lower status than the wife because she is a casualty of war from the enemy's side.
My brothers and sisters he had two of them.
From these four women came all of his children.
From the first one, Rebecca
The first I think five or six of his children
and their names I forgot but some of their names you would hear in Jewish they're all the Jewish tribes today. They're the ones in Palestine, which they call Israel and they occupied.
The Israelis have occupied the lands of Palestinians. They call their tribes by the names of all the children of Jaco ballets center. Some of these names are Reuben.
Right, then Dan is another name,
there are several names which I can't remember them all. And from Leah, came use of Allahu Sera, the Prophet Joseph, and his brother, Binyamin also named Benjamin.
And from his other to the concubines came the rest of his children. All of his he had 11 he had 12 sons, 12 sons and one daughter.
He had 12 sons, and one daughter.
His daughter's name was Donna.
I'm talking to him according to biblical terms, Donna, but Yusuf Alayhi. Salam is the only name we know of that is in the Quran. And in Arizona, who is the messenger and Prophet of Allah.
Use of Alayhis Salam is called Al Karim, the Honorable Abdul Karim, the son of the honorable, ignoble Corinne who is the son of the honorable Abdul Karim, who is the son of the honorable use of a cell and the messenger son of a messenger yopu, who is the son of a messenger is how, who was the son of a messenger Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam, and no one has been given this privilege in this honor.
Other than these four prophets after each other, especially the use of La salaam, being from the line of Prophets, this is what Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam called them called him. Al Karim. They're Kareem Abdul Karim Karim. What honor and privilege
and Jacobi Allah has Sudan. From him came all the children of Israel, they are still the people till today who carry that bloodline. They are the Jews that are known today.
The Jews are split to your normal Jews, which are the majority of the world, Orthodox Jews and the likes. And there's a little group that came about in
the, in the
just before World War One, they were called the Zionists. And that's an extreme group of Jews who are now
illegally occupying the lands of Palestine.
But as for the rest of the Jews, the children of Israel, we have no issues with them. No problem. There's respect mutual respect between us. And don't ever mistaken Jews with Zionists, Zionist to the extreme terrorist form to us to the Muslims.
But the Jews, the majority of the Jews of the world are not, and they are the ones who lived in harmony and peace and tranquility in respect to the Muslims for
over 1300 400 years since the tongue Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam little bit after him. The Jews came back and they lived with Muslims in harmony, peace and tranquility. And they learned from us a lot of a lot of the knowledge
so that a lot of Christians, especially in Islamic Spain, Al Andalus. But that's another topic.
The children of Israel therefore are mainly the Jews. And from the children of Israel, you will learn after if you come to the series in shells profit series, you'll learn when I talk about a Saudi Sudan Prophet Jesus Christ Ali Salam, the children of Israel split again, and from them came, but modern day Christians as well. Some of them some of the children of Israel, but the bloodline of the 12 are still known till today they are the Jews. That's why they say, Judaism is not really a religion, some of the Jews will tell you that it's not really a religion, you can't call it a religion. It's more of an inherited bloodline. You're a Jew, if you're born from the bloodline of
the Jews, that's it. And that's why you'll find people that call themselves Jews, but they're atheists. They don't believe in a God.
And some Jews, they follow the religion of Musa alayhis salam, and the Torah as what they have today after it's been altered, and changed.
So Jacoba lay Salam is Israel, and all those who came after him. The Jews of today are called the children of Yaqoob children of Israel.
We honor and respect Prophet Jacoba is the Messenger of Allah, among the highest and most respected.
He is also called by our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam upon Ambia
the patriarch of all the Prophets that the father of all the prophets
in the Jews, they consider these four men, Ibrahim, Ali salaam, these four prophets, Ibrahim,
is how Jacoba nusach as the patriarchs,
of all mankind, that's the word patriarch came from,
to us, Abraham assalam is father of the Prophet, because from him came all the prophets and messengers, right up to
Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Muhammad Salah Salem is also from the bloodline of Ibrahim Elisa Lambert from the site of it's made like two branches
but from the branch of His head can province after province after province after province and there was all the way down to a Sally Silla and yeah here and Zecharia and other prophets as for Mohammed, Salah, Salah and he did not arise and come from the from the bloodline of Israel until nearly 4000 years later.
So Jacoba Allah Islam
came from him the 12 sons. In the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala acknowledges these 12 tribes. Later on in the story of Musa alayhis salam Moses, you will we will talk about the 12 tribes, as Allah mentioned them in the Quran without their names,
but they were the names of his children. If you want to refer back to their names, you'll find them in the Torah. In the book of Genesis, they call it the Old Testament
Jacoba alayhis salaam grew up with the same belief in the same message as all the prophets that will be for him.
The religion of his father is held and the religion of his father of his grandfather, the code or the human center.
Ibrahim Ali Salam is also called the Hanif. Hanif means, a worshipper of one God, only one and only one and only God unifies Allah in all of his names and attributes. The Allah men have split into three categories how you should, what it means to worship only one god what to believe in only one god they split it into something called Robo via Hulu hear and smell sikkert lordship worship and names and attributes. You've got to unify a lot to have to hate to really be a monotheistic person to be a Hanif like Ibrahim alayhis salam and his children is helped Jacoba and useless and you got to believe unify and believe in Allah and worship and the three these three categories Lordship that
he is the creator and sustainer maintainer of the universe, and from him comes everything without him nothing can come will be created. As we all know this is very easy. We know here which means worshipping only worship Allah and direct your worship in every way, shape or form, in your heart, in your mind and in your physical acts only Allah alone. And as Matt was SIFAT His names and attributes which he has revealed to us, we do not associate partners or make anything like them in the entire universe. He is truly unified and singled out of all these three, this is the meaning of Hanif. Now, these words I just told you lordship worship and names and attributes, the whole amount,
the scholars have developed them over time to make us understand what overhead means.
So he was the man of Hanif and so work his children, the prophets and messengers, and you'll hear Jacoba nucifera hemocyanin. constantly referring back to this. We follow the religion and monotheism of our fathers is hard and Ibrahim Jacoba seems to say that and use of La Selenge, to say the religion of my father's Iacob is held on Abraham.
So Jacoba his Salam
he grew up and became an old man, wise old man, who Allah endured with intense knowledge.
And they lived somewhere in the east of Egypt, in Palestine, but closer to Egypt, still in the Palestine regions.
In those days was the ancient was the call at greatest Syria. There were Palestine, trans Jordan,
today, Lebanon and Syria together parts of Turkey, these are all called Syria or a sham.
So Jacoba is lived in that area in Palestine, close to Egypt.
And he gave Dawa to all the people there people followed jacobellis salons, religion, which Allah came with and gave him and he was quite successful.
The problem in the time of Jacoba is Salam was not really with his people as much as it was with his own sons.
This was a Family Feud, a family issue.
So the story that we're about to learn today is going to focus on Jakob Ali salaam, and his son Yusuf alayhi salam and his brother's
use of Allah you
So as you know, just to repeat very quickly, Yusuf Ali Salam had a brother from the same mother, Leah. And the rest of them were his step brothers
10 were his step brothers and one sister, she is not mentioned in the Quran, as though his sister was not part of the whole feud.
Jacoba his salon,
loved all of his children.
He did not show any favoritism between any of his children. Listen to what I said. He did not show any favoritism. He didn't show that he treated one child better than the other, all of them, including his daughter, they were all equally treated well.
And this is one of the biggest lessons that we learn from the prophets. As parents, if you have children, you must always treat them as equally as you possibly can within your human ability.
And never show a child that you are favoring another in fact, don't favor them. All of them are equal. Boys and girls, old and young.
Jacoba alayhi salam, whatever he did, for one child did exactly the same for the other child
as much as he can.
So all of his children could not
point out any fault in the way Jacoba insulin treated his children.
But there was one problem.
that they father Jacoba alayhis. Salam seems to love use of Allah is certain particular more than them.
And that is the only thing which you are not
Allah does not judge you on your feelings and who you love more than another.
He judges us on how we treat him. But Allah doesn't judge us on the feelings. Anybody who claims that love is in your control has lied, or doesn't know what love means. Love emanates as a result of many factors which you can't control.
Add to that use of Alayhis Salam was a prophet and a messenger jacobellis Salam knew this. So he had the right to be loved more than any of them, regardless of him being his son or not. Because we all love the messengers and prophets more than anyone else, isn't that correct? We have to love the messengers and prophets more than anyone else, even more than our parents.
Because Allah has sent the messages and promise to guide us away from darkness into light including our parents. And if it wasn't for Allah and then these messages neither us nor our parents will reach salvation or go to Paradise or be guided.
So our love for them is greater.
How do you love someone more?
It also depends on what kind of a person you are. What are the things that you love? Listen carefully to this one.
Once the answer is in this little incident that happened between Mohamed Salah Salem and American football for the
rasool Allah Allah Salah Muhammad Salah said and said to honorable Qatar one time this hadith is inside Buhari he said
oh my god
you will not enter paradise until I am more beloved to you than anything else.
So I'm gonna help offset wala here I love you yeah rasool Allah more than anything except myself. I don't love you more than myself. He's being honest, honorable HotJobs and honest, honest. What you see is what you get. He wears his heart on his sleeves.
There Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said to him lair Omar had the Hakuna a hub, a hub had the Hakuna I have them in FC, hub woman lovesick not until I am more beloved to you than even yourself.
So I'm recalled Bogdan waited a little while he thought about it thought about is really going to make sure of it. And then he says,
Now ya rasool Allah had them in FCW, even more than myself.
So he asked him how, how did you come to that conclusion just made it up or says I reflected upon myself. I looked at my qualities and I looked at your qualities. I looked at my character to your character, I looked at my actions and your actions. And every time I compared your actions and your qualities could not be compared. I couldn't compare my tools yours are way above beyond the stars.
And because I loved
your qualities and love to have them because of the qualities and character is in you. I found that I actually love you more than myself.
Because if there are qualities and characters in you that you don't like, how much do you like yourself, if there are call ism characters that are in another person that are higher than yours and you love those qualities, you love those values, then you will love that person more.
Especially if they treat you better as well. Love is also based on treatment. How did Mohamed Salah sell and trade his people trade on want to trade all of them on top thought you treat people better than me in a way that I would never dream I would love to be a person like you. Therefore he says I found myself loving you more. So the person who truly loves you for the values that you have. This is a person that you should be beside. But a person who loves you for insignificant things like money, wealth, fame, fortune, lux, whatever it may be. That's not true love.
But when you love someone for the values and qualities that Allah loves,
that is real love. And that is the meaning of loving, for the sake of Allah.
You love the things that Allah loves in that person or you love the person because Allah spent Allah loves that person. So my brothers and sisters, how do you know because they are people of Allah, you see their actions on the outside. So you love that action. Therefore you love the person
Jacoba Alayhis Salam, his qualities and values were amazing. And his treatments to his children were amazing. And you also find a salon had these qualities too. So how could Jacoba not love use of more than all of them. None of them shared the qualities and values that use of iclm Has he was a man of God.
So as a parent, you are allowed to love one child more than the other or one child different to the other. And Allah will not judge you for that.
And I've got a little daughter and an older daughter and an older son. I don't love them the same. Each one has a different love. Isn't that correct? Oh is the youngest one carries a special love more than the others, isn't it? Until the next one comes. Some people they say no never love more than this last child and you have the next chance suddenly you'll love increases for that child. Something about you can't control them. But treatment has to be equal and you will be an oppressor if you deliberately mistreat them. Once a man a Bedouin said came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he had a daughter and a son. He sat down and put his son on his lap and put his daughter to sit
on the floor.
So Rasul Allah, Allah said and said to him, man ident don't, you did not treat them equally. You put your son higher on your lap. You put your daughter on the floor.
And then suddenly the man is astonished thinking what what is this? You know, sons are to be honored and given more privileges and McGill's. That's how the Bedouin Arabs used to think
suddenly of Hassan Al Hussein the grand or the Allah Han, who met the grandchildren of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, children of Isla de la han, they entered the Prophet sallallahu sallam, kiss them and hug them and place them on his lap. And the Bedouin said,
this is another story. Now another Bedouin came in and he said, The Rasul Allah, I have nine or 10 children will lie I've never kissed one of them.
And rasool Allah Azza wa sallam replied to the site famous Hadith that we know. Lace Amina manlam, er Han, however, does not give mercy is not one of us. You are not the example among us. If you don't give mercy, get another Hadith he says get a Hmong and fill out of the Hong Kong mafia Summit. Have mercy on those who are on earth. The one who is above the heavens will have mercy on you.
My Brothers and Sisters in Islam Jacoba Alayhis Salam was like that. And as a result, unfortunately, the 10 brothers not Binyamin, not the 11th. One, the 10 brothers, who came from the other mothers, the step brothers, they developed a very deep jealousy just because of that from yourself. And that jealousy intensified as they grew older.
Who can tell me what is the first sin ever committed?
as far as we know, from the Quran, it was before racism
it's the result of racism.
I mean, it creates racism. Now it creates pride, jealousy, from WHO?
A bliss. Bliss was with the remember we talked about it story of Adam. What was the first thing that he did wrong? Jealousy from
Adam a lesson and why he's different. But his difference is not that is because Allah honored him. Why is he so especially what what is he is nothing is made out of clay.
Again, wrong judgment.
Wrong equation. When you love someone for the values that Allah loves, that's true love. When you love someone for their wealth, that's false love. When you
You think that you are better than someone else because who you are what you come from.
That's wrong. Self esteem. At least talkers are made out of fire is made out of soil. What the heck is so special about him?
But it's not that there are other things that Allah if Allah values someone, you value them hello, there must be something special about him. So Jacoba Alayhis Salam children became jealous just because they want their father's love more than use of Alesana Oh, they were judging Jacobo ASAM was it was about feelings which you don't control.
And love comes from the HA rasool Allah Azza wa sallam said the heart is in the control of my Lord.
He tumbles it and moves it in any direction he wills
we don't control our hearts.
Allah the wise does. He knows how in just the proper way. Brothers and sisters. This jealousy is the cause of murder.
Deaths murder, destruction, evil it turns a person into an evil person jealousy
and that's what our soul Allah Azza wa sallam he told us in a hadith in Sahih Muslim he said it Yeah, Kamal has said beware of jealousy for internal hacer de colo al Hassan Attica could another hottub jealousy eats away your good deeds that you've done. All the good deeds you've accumulated. Jealousy eats it away, just like fire burns wood.
Now there's two types of jealousy one is halal and one is haram.
The Halal jealousy
is when you genuinely are happy
for another person who has something you don't have.
But you wouldn't mind you wish that you also had it too. For a good reason.
You're happy genuinely for whatever someone else has that you don't have. But you also wish that you had it for a good reason. For example, my brother here might have a lot of wealth.
And let's say I see him is donating in that wealth. And I think Subhanallah he's getting closer to Jana quicker than me. I wish I had the wealth that he has. So I can also donate so I can also be close to Jana.
May Allah bless his wealth, that Halal jealousy.
Haram jealousy is when I see him having wealth and driving nice cars. And he gets the attention.
And I think man I've been working on my life what has he ever done? I deserve it because I deserve the attention. Why should any develops anger, hate? enmity?
That's the Haram jealousy.
My Brothers and Sisters in Islam. The brothers grew toxic.
But they hit it needs to talk amongst each other. Because that's how it all starts, doesn't it? First of all, you built for yourself a little gang.
You got to have supporters. They got to lobby, build a little gang. That's how you become bullies.
You in my years of experience in teaching at school, this is what we see sometimes among students when they bully other and here's what we deal with and teach them and hamdulillah
they make a little group little gang
to bully someone else. Boys have a different way. When a group and the girls have a different way when a group
I don't know that this most of them are like passive aggressive,
killers. The boys are open because they use the physical form. Generally
girls more psychological, emotional.
The boys can also be psychological, emotional, but they resort to their
fists and their Wolfpack in a mentality.
Girls have the gossip, innuendo.
Boys can have it too. But most often physical.
innuendo means toxic stuff.
So my brothers and sisters in Islam, they develop again.
We got to support Allah who we're going to gang against this little
whatever use of
They said Why does he more beloved to our father than us? Why not and also and we are
a larger, stronger group that supports our dad and the family. We carry the bloodline more than his you know we came from the first mother. We are more in number. We're older. We've got the strength we've been working in protecting our dad Why should our this young boy here's seven, eight years
they'll get more love than us. That's how they took it. And this is what happens in a lot of families
especially when it comes to money.
And so the story of use of comes to light
in one long surah in the Quran called surah.
saw that he also
let me tell you about this surah when was it revealed? Approximately
two years before the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam migrated from Mecca to Medina before the Hegira.
All right, and about the 11th year of his prophethood
The Jews were living up in in near Medina, Mohamed Salah Salem was in Makkah who was being persecuted and all that stuff, persecuted, tortured, and harmed and people who followed him.
If that wasn't enough, there came a year which was called the year of sorrow. For those of you who wanted the details, go back to the series about the Sierra, which we made here.
And you can look at my Facebook page, I've got her all the Sierra about 40 lectures on the Sierra you'll see him and he was in the year of sorry, rasool Allah Azza wa sallam suffered so much in that year. And his wife, Alicia, are the Allahu anha the one who was the first support of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam when he became a prophet
who as we all know her story, she died but at the Allahu anha in that year, and that the sorrow in the prophets are synonyms heart was so tough for so intensified.
It hurt him severely.
Some narration say that also the lice Allah Salam did not speak
for several days to anyone when his wife Khadija died or de la han, except very little, wasn't himself.
If that wasn't enough, about six weeks later,
his second strongest support, who loved him and he loved him was his uncle Abu Talib also died. The one who sacrifice his reputation and dignity
among his people just for his nephew, Abu Talib, a protected class and now he was open,
to be killed. If that wasn't enough, a third thing happened to the Prophet sallallaahu Salam. And that was the incident of the trip to a poor if you want to read about the trip to apply for was terrible when he went there and he suffered humiliate. Well, kids and women and men, humiliating the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by throwing stones at his feet and in his face in his body so salah they were still making them bleed
and saying horrible words to him when he went to call them or to seek refuge with them running away from Mecca to try and get refuge and they started to punish him this way. Long story to the point where he complained to Allah subhanaw taala and cried like no doubt he's ever made to the point where his wife Aisha Radi Allahu anha later on, because I showed them and I was still young at the time she didn't know about the issue of dive. She only knew about the Battle of better the Battle of Ohio developed hunt duck and she thought the Battle of it was the worst to ever happen to Mohamed Salah Salah. So she asks him one day yeah rasool Allah, what was the worst time of your life is the
worst. And he said immediately without hesitation, the worst is what I received from your people, the people meaning people of Arabia in earthlife.
And he didn't talk too much more about it. But the worst time for him was alive. And these three incidents all happened in that one year until it is known till today I'm it was in the year of sorrow, where the proceeds send them suffered in every single way possible. Even one of his daughters died or the alarm and he had to bury her. And then his second daughter died a bit later on at the barrier a little bit after that year. And he was homeless, a fugitive
that people after his blood to assassinate him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
No wife, children weren't couldn't when they they had no sons. His son had died. They brought him in buried him with his own hands the age of two.
No protection, no money
to counsel him, Allah subhanaw taala sent him so that Yosef
to give him some counsel, to make him feel a little bit better about himself
and to give him hope.
Also his companions were being tortured.
And they used to come to the prophesized center and say yeah, rasool Allah.
Tell us about the stories of the people of the past who also suffered said
We can at least feel we can get stronger.
Against the torture, we are suffering, because when you hear someone else's plight, and you find someone that you can relate to, it helps you.
And so Allah said sought use of, to talk about the plight of use of Eliza
and Jakob, they suffered intensely.
Brothers and sisters, I don't think there is a greater suffering
than when the people who are torturing you,
and hating on you
and bullying you in every way, or your own family.
The enemy outside is the enemy, you know that the enemy got no remorse for them because they're the enemy, but a family who was supposed to be your support, if they're not there, who is other than Allah,
your survival Jakob, were the example of the torture and bullying by their own family. And not just something simple, terrible.
Brothers and Sisters in Islam, he will he suffered physically, psychologically, and emotionally in every way from his own family.
The story of use of also comes when the people of Quraysh went to the Jews, because they still believe the Jews, they have a book that was sent to them the Torah. So the Quran kind of respected the Jews in that they have more knowledge. So they asked them, give us something that we can ask Mohamed to challenge him with, that he doesn't know the answer to from your books. And they said, Ask him about the story of use of Joseph, no one else knows about us.
Because the Metcons, the Bedouins they didn't mix with all these religions, I have no idea. Imagine yourself for example, living if we don't have social technology, social media and technology today.
Imagine that you lived in you went to some remote people have never seen civilization living in some, you know, remote desert somewhere in the world, living there for 1000s of years. And they have a man among them who is telling them about all the technology that you are seeing here today, when they have never seen it and have encountered it before. Wouldn't it be a miracle? How could that man know all this stuff, Muhammad wa salam knew now Allah subhanaw taala then revealed to the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem, the full detailed story of Yusuf Ali's
and he brought him information that was not in the Torah that went in line with the story even better than this story. Not only did he tell him the details, Allah told him the story in such eloquence and beauty that they had never heard the likes before.
And so he told them, the whole story of sort of the use of in his eloquent beautiful form, that no man no human being can make the likes of.
So the sword use of Allah His Salah
it begins with three letters of the villainess, shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. And if
these three letters they called a helful, mocha, mocha, mocha the letters which are separated they appear several places in the Quran. The best of said we have of them is that nobody knows their meanings, but they have a secret. Allahu Allah who can unlock them.
Then Allah Subhana Allah says is to
keep kita moving. These are the clear signs and verses Beaubien means to show to reveal to reveal what reveal the answer to their questions and reveal the things that you were in doubt about. You were confused about things that you don't know I'm going to clear them up for you in a proper way moving in.
And Allah called it kitab. Kitab means a book where there is stuff that's written in it
and sometimes Allah calls it Quran and Quran is that which is recited. So the Quran is recited and written both, we have that with us.
And then Allah says,
being in your town, no doubt.
We have sent it down as a Quran, meaning that which is recited so first Kitab, written recited
and in Arabic in the Arabic language, why? In the hope that you might understand and comprehend
the Quran is an Arabic language Quran
It is the actual spoken words of Allah.
And the actual spoken words of Allah which He revealed to which Gibreel listened to and heard and he gave them to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam from mouth to mouth, meaning he read them, most of them, heard them and memorize them. It's called Talquin.
Over in the Quran, there are some words that didn't come from Arabia itself that came from different languages like Latin.
Right? And other languages, Sarah make other languages. Like for example, the sauce, the sauce means justice. That's a Persian word. But when Allah says RRB, it means it is the language of the Arabs. So with a some words came from different parts of the world, they now became the actual language of the Arabs, which were intertwined with it and used as Arabic language.
So when Allah says RRB, it means the language that you speak. And that is the challenge of the Quran actually, that can you bring a recital that can also be written and never changed. Just as a result of recital in your own language that you speak even with the language that you have that has other words in it from different languages,
and still bring me another book, like it in the same level in the same eloquence and the same standard.
They can't challenges even greater.
So Allah says, so that you may comprehend the Arabic language, Allah chose it. Now some people might think,
how is it fair for us non Arabs, to have the Quran read in Arabic? How's that fair for us? The answer to that is simple. Allah had to send the Quran in one of the languages, isn't it, so choose one language send it in. And he had sent His scriptures and books before that in other languages, the Hebrew the Aramaic, other language all their own languages, scriptures from different people.
At the Quran, in Arabic, Allah chose it to a people in Arabia who had not mixed with anybody in the world, they were the furthest away from civilization intelligence, many of them the majority of them were illiterate, they could not read or write and they never mixed with any religion. So the challenge to bring it down in their own language talking about stuff that no one has ever spoken in their language before, they have never known before and never mixed with them before is a miracle in itself.
And no one could have ever imagined or can believe that these people made up the Quran because they don't know it. But it's in their language that's why it's a miracle
can't find anything to say it's they made it up
for those who know the history of the Arabs
and the Arabic language itself is something remarkable it's something magnificent for those of you know, the Arabic language I can't go into in detail, but I can tell you this that the Arabic language is so
its grammar and its structure is so fixed.
That for you to find the fault in the Quranic text or its grammar or anything to try and change one syllable like Otto II, you will have to explain why because it changes the meaning
in you, for example, if I say to you, what can lamb Allahu Musa cleaner which is a verse in the Quran? Or I said, What can la mala Musa attack Lima who knows the difference? What can la mala who Musa cleaner or Carla Mala Musa cleaner? What's the difference?
What did I change? I changed something very subtle
halacha one of the syllables which one?
Allah who I changed Allah Who Allahu Allah had
any difference in English it makes no difference is there's none of this. The big there's a huge difference. In fact, one is correct belief in Allah while the other is covered.
And what is it?
When you say Allah Who it means Allah, the harvest means and Allah spoke to Musa in real talk. In real speech. If I say Allahu, it means Allah did the talking. If I say Allah it means Musa did the talking to Allah means Allah did not speak to Musa
that Allah did not speak to His Prophet.
You see the difference? One is fair, and one is my follow up. One is the speaker. The other one is the object you're referring to him as a second person. Now Brothers and Sisters in Islam, the Arabic language there
For is so interested in data the Quran came in the Arabic language and you cannot play around with it. That's why for today 1400 And something is now not a single letter in the Quran has been altered change and mitad or added and it cannot be and the challenge still stands bring a verse, a chapter like at the source chapters one line and a half in the other nickel Goethe for suddenly Arabic 100 inertia and alcohol after nobody's been able to produce one like it nothing, and it's still there and hamdulillah the Quran is the book of Allah, the words of ALLAH, the miracle of Allah.
No, no, no, no
no you can
Fini, Allah said, We shall have the right to you the best of stories.
In that we have given you this revelation meaning because we've given you this revelation, this Quran because of it. We're going to include the best of stories since we're giving you the revelation, we might as well give you a beautiful story in his language.
We're in contact and copy him in Aloha Faline. While before it, you had no knowledge of it whatsoever, I'm gonna tell you a story in the most beautiful form. And you and you have never known anything about it nothing and it's true. You can put it to the test and find that it's true.
Then Allah says, it will
Out on a nice
behold when Yusuf alayhi salam said to his father, Dr. Koop
I have seen in my dream 11 planets or stars around things, celestial planets,
and the sun and the moon together.
Bowing to me, prostrating to him putting their heads on the floor like a like a person making sense to me.
His father said to him,
don't know him. Gonna
do like, okay, in no shape on.
Beaubien, Allah said, that Jakob said to his son, son, do not tell your dream to your brothers. Because if you do,
the shaytaan will give them ideas to plot and plan against you a terrible plot. What does this tell us? It tells us that Jacoba is Salah knew from his wisdom and his experience in life, how to tell the character of a people, he knew that his sons were jealous of use of his son, and that they were intending something horrible. If they knew about this, if they knew that he saw this wonderful dream,
then they will probably think that he has some kind of special qualities. Because they used to believe they were believers. His brothers were believers. They knew the prophets, they knew the prophets could see dreams like this. So they were knowledgeable scholars, his brothers, they weren't simple people that the problem was their jealousy. If you were to tell them, they're going to plot against you to get rid of you. And what this also tells us is that if you know that you have a good quality brothers and sisters, something that no one has or little people have something special, you know that your children have it or your family has it. A good wise person does not go and parade it
around. Certainly doesn't put it on social media. I'm
happy to say that I got this award for Boehm no one cares.
But people do get jealous. Happy to say I bought this car from why
the shaitan loves to cause enmity and jealousy between us.
Right? It's good to share happy times with people that you trust. But be careful. Be careful because the harm will come back on you may have good intentions to show that look what you have, because you're proud and happy and you say it. hamdulillah and you want Barona family to be happy for you and you're happy with them. But be careful because Subhanallah even sometimes, family members themselves shutdown can play with the hits. And look ya'll could put the fault on the shaitan rather than his sons because he says evil can creep into any good person.
And he's still assumed well of his sons. Like you said, Look, they've got good in them, but sometimes a shutdown can come to them make them go astray for a little while a very wise man who as far ASA meaning could look at a person tell you the character to science.
So what happened? Use the penicillin kept a secret
And he didn't know its actual meaning yet, but had a hint so did jacobellis And you had a hint you knew this was a Kurama a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala. It also tells us that dreams my brothers and sisters are still happening till today that they come from Allah subhanaw taala.
Even non Muslims will see a drink that comes from Allah, a warning, a sign, a guidance, a message. We talked about this last time
and use of Alayhis Salam and Jakob therefore kept it a secret until one day
his brothers got together and they decided to plot a terrible plot even without knowing his dream.
When you're when you suffer Allah has Salam was about eight years old or seven. I don't know the narrations are different. Some say he was 17 years old. But Allah had I think it was more about seven or eight from what I read. And when he was about seven or eight he had a grandfather from his mother's side who was an idol worshiper.
This this narration is going to be though in the Allahu Allah if it's true or not, but it makes sense. He went as a child, he saw that he's got this idol, the statue, which he used to worship, a small statue, and use of at the young age went and broke this idol. He thought what kind of this doesn't talk doesn't do anything broken.
So his grandfather, sorry, I'm sorry, he took it. He took it away and hid it somewhere away from his grandfather's on his grandfather to worship an idol. He felt for him. That's what little kids do right? Sometimes. And what happened is that his brothers found out and they went and got it back and I said, don't do that anymore. Do do whatever.
And subhanAllah you'll see later on in the story, they remind him of that incident. They called him a thief. Even though he wasn't a thief, it was just a little child. I just wanted to point that out. When they got together, the Quran says that the brothers of Jakob the 10 brothers without Binyomin from the oldest to the youngest, they plotted and said because our father loves him more while we are the stronger and the more important clan.
Let's kill him.
Let's kill him until our father can no longer see him anymore and maybe his love will be forgotten and come back to us where it belongs. To Pamela the oldest trick in the book of the show on telling Kaabil to kill his brother habit. The names come from biblical terms by the way the two sons of Adam at least
one of the brothers It was assumed the oldest one said to them now talk to the use of don't kill yourself while goofy higher but in job go and find a well a very deep dark well and throw him in there. Maybe a car or a passing caravan or vehicle will come past while they're fetching water, they'll hear him and take him
and he's gone. He'll never come back
reminds you of The Lion King doesn't it?
Scar all that.
Kind of like that. And they said he will go you know as good as dead anyway.
What a cool human body here common solid in this is a very important comment here. Allah said, they plotted. They planned, they decided to execute.
They made the decision. And then they added something. They said oh yeah, by the way.
It's like they're looking at each other thinking hey, what about God? You know, what's he gonna do to us? We know it's haram. This is like murder. This is terrible this is and then they go. Well, after that you will repent and ask Allah to forgive you and colostomy you go straight and never do it again. That's it. From Monday I'm gonna start praying. That's it. Like that. I'll just go and steal one more time. I'll take drugs one more time. I'll lie one more time after that one lower layer, I'll be good. Doesn't work that way. You cannot trick Allah subhanaw taala. And know my brothers and sisters that the unanimous agreement among the Sahaba the companions and although lemma
is that this is the perfect delete perfect
evidence that if a person asks Allah to forgive them while still planning to do something, like it just not really meaning it, it's not a repentance, it will not be forgiven.
You have to be sincere. And then if you do it again, then be sincere and repent again. If you do it again. Repent, do it again. Repeat this 100 times repent. But so long as each time you really mean it. And you're trying your best because that's better than trying to trick Allah. They said killing murder him boo Hara and then after it ask Allah to forgive you.
You hold the gun to a person say, Please, God forgive me. You shoot the guy. That doesn't work. I'm going to still please God forgive me. But unless you're in a case of necessity or whatever, that's a different story. These guys are just jealous. So repentance is not accepted. If it is not sincere. Repentance. It doesn't work. If you
try to trick Allah and intend what the guru mean by the economists or afterwards you become righteous. It's like people who delay their hash until they're 60 years old. They say, I'll do all the Haram all that until I'm 50 or 60. Because I'm still young now my hormones are up and I'm still I'm still on rebound still on this, I'm still like women, I still look at stuff when I'm about 60 in my hormones, and then I'll go into hygiene or become a righteous person and settle down. We hear this in my culture a lot. So here's a hash, here's 100. Guys,
has means that's it
would have been doing for the past 50 years tricking Allah. It doesn't work that way. And it is known that Allah subhanaw taala does not praise a person who who delays the repentance till they're old. He praises a person who is young, and lives in the worship of Allah. And the people who are more religious at old age are the people who grew up in the religiosity when they were young. And then who knows when you're going to die brothers and sisters. Have you got a contract with Allah? Have you got on your license, date of death? DOD? Nobody has. You don't know when your DoD is we know when our DOD is not DOD. Okay.
So people who think you know, your DoD have Odede on something. That's terrible. That's a terrible joke.
Brothers and Sisters in Islam.
We do not know.
And Allah rasool Allah wa sallam said the seven will be shaded under allah on the Day of Judgment, no other shade, but his shade and he said share buena Shafi bear that in a young person who was raised in the worship of Allah and Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam said that Allah said, a share buta Abel Habib, Allah, He said, the young person, the sham person from the age of puberty up to the age of about 30. They're called Shabaab young person, a youth who repents, who repents, who always tries to fix always tries to ask Allah forgive us always tries to fix his mistakes, or her mistake is the Beloved of Allah. It means that Allah knows the young person will always sin. If that's not the
problem, that's not an issue. So long as every time you sin, you repent, you try to fix it, you try to get back to try to mend yourself, you're always trying always coming back. It means you've got shame, you've got modesty, you've got guilt, you wish bla you really want to come back to what I was trying to fix yourself trying to, this is a Habibollah, the Beloved of Allah, constant repenting.
And this is the person who will die on Amen.
it doesn't mean that a person who delays until they're old may not enter paradise or whatever some people do. But that's a big risk to take.
My brothers and sisters, this is what they plotted. And then they said, listen, we'll go to our father.
And we'll try to persuade him to send use of with us to the grazing land that needs to go and graze and farm.
Now, they didn't know what excuse to give their father.
But guess what, because Jacoba Alayhis Salam loves his children. And he really wants the best for them. Right? And he's trying to make them not do what they're going to do. He doesn't wanna be harsh to them about it.
Subhan Allah, while putting, he doesn't trust them. But while being too kind. He doesn't realize that he gave it he gives them he gives them he helps them with their plot without knowing it gives them a reason for them to use. What is that? They said to him? Yeah, Ben, our father, send our brother with us tomorrow so he can go and play and muck around with us while we plow on work. And we will look after him. And he said to them now, like instead of saying no way I will not send him with with you final.
He said I fear that the wolf will eat him. While you know you guys are over there and not looking the wolf will come and eaten it. He knows the wolf is not going to eat him. But he's trying to sort of be kind to them and not be straight with them. Sometimes a parent has to be straight with their child No means no. Why then need to give you a reason.
Because he felt very fear. He goes look just don't I fear that he had this kindness. So they said nah, we'll look after him. The wolf won't eat and what all of us 10 Big guys plowing the woods, Canadian Father, come on.
So he goes, okay, okay, you can take him but please look after him.
And subhanAllah later on, they used that same excuse. Oh, Father, the wolf. ating. As you said, they didn't even know that we're thinking about it. Sometimes when you don't trust someone, just be firm and assertive, rather than passive like that. That was passive.
So they took him
the next day, and useful is certainly said to have been about 12 years old by that time. Some narration say a bit older, some say a little bit younger. Let's go with the middle. 12 years old, he was still a child. And he trusted his brothers he did
Know that there were plotting and planning a child doesn't know these things.
It says that when they took him there was smiling and everything. And when they reached away from their father site close to the grazing lands near where the well is
they put a frown on their face and they went cold towards him.
The youngest of them pushed use of
so use have complained to the old one. And he pushed him, he complained to the third one, he pushed him. And he kept going from Brother to brother until he reached the older age one, mistreated him, pushed him and treated him bad and poked him. And then the oldest one grabbed him and use myself trying to say Help me Help me, all of them were mean to him and started to bully him and hurt him and poking and punching and kicking,
And he realized then, that they had plotted to do something with him. He was afraid.
So they took him to the well, as Allah says, what a call. Alcohol means they threw him. Actually not alcohol means they dropped him. So it's like holding something like this.
And you're not holding on to anything. And then you just let it go, drop free, a freefall.
That's the meaning of alchemy. Alchemy is to let something go and it goes down threefold. Subhan. Allah Allahu Allah and how high this well was that it was a freefall from the top to the bottom. Can you imagine if he broke some bones? Possibly, what injuries that he had? Was he bleeding? Did he injure his head all is possible in this case, because you're falling from a high distance, a distance that he can't climb out of at least five meters, at least 10 meters something like that freefall.
And he found the little rock on which he climbed on and sat there.
Now before they threw him into the well, they took his shirt off.
He was buried from the top
and they got fake blood blood of a goat or a sheep or something. And they spilt all over his shirt.
To prove to their father that a wolf ate him and this is his blood
and to show you that this wasn't the trick I mean, your cook gave him that excuse unintentionally. Look what they did they put blood on a shirt
and then they returned back to their father crying Allah says why
and they came to their father in the evening
in the night crying
Debbie mod meanie Lana
what? They said, oh Father, we went ahead of Yousuf we're too fast. And we lost him. He was out of sight. And then the wolf ate him.
And you will not believe us, even if we were truthful.
Even if we were truthful.
You see, when somebody's guilty. When somebody is hasty. When somebody does a crime, they always stumble.
Because the truth is the truth. The false is the false. They said even if we were truthful, you wouldn't believe us. Like they're saying that you know like you don't trust us at all that even when we tell the truth is still don't believe us. So basically they gave themselves away almost right.
I didn't ask you I didn't tell you that. I don't believe you. Why did you say that? That's that's that's the response in his head right.
Now there were actually relatively they were in their low 20s That's how old they were. Still my stupid jealousy of driven
see be done in the end and I brought his shirt with false blood on it.
Jacoba a Salem looks at the shirt and this is what he says
how compassionate this wolf the ATM is.
He eats him and takes care not to rip his shirt.
Shirt was perfect.
So he said as Allah says, God
John D, one wall and
these are, these are really Wallahi the painful words, he said,
You're evil desires
have led you astray Subhan Allah, He still doesn't blame them completely. He blames the evil desires that are in them.
That's how prophets are, they judge the action, they judge the evil that's in you,
not you yourself, because you can still turn, you can still get better.
Same with us. If I judge you, I judge the action, I don't judge you. You may be dishonest here. But you may be courageous, and that's a good quality. So I don't, you're not all bad. Subhanallah took his own son away. Allahu Alem where he is they lie to him, you know, they've plotted and he says still blames it on the evil desire that's in them, they gotta get rid of that. You gotta get rehab, you gotta fix yourself, sons, there's still hope in you, Allah, and they really aren't a prophet and personal God can be like that.
And then he turns to himself Jacobian this is what's painful. Listen to what he says, For sovereign journey. He says to himself, and he lets them here. I am going to exercise beautiful patients now. What am I going to exercise? What do we call it?
Beautiful, beautiful patients.
What's beautiful patients? Then he said, and Allah who will assist me against
the evil that you have done?
What is beautiful patience.
And why does it need Allah's assistance?
Patience is of two categories, three categories. So patience is three, you have to pass in all three. And we are tested in all three. The first patience is patience against calamities and hardships and tragedies that happen to you. Everybody knows that right? When tragedy has happened to us, we are patient by avoiding to commit sin, or to rebel against Allah or doing things that Allah doesn't want us to do, as a result of that tragedy. That's number one, be patient.
The second type of patience is being patient.
By continuing to avoid doing the wrong, you know, when you're tempted to do wrong, it needs patients to keep away from it, isn't that correct? That's the second form of patients, patients against your desires. And lastly, is patience, but in the meaning of perseverance, commitment, when you commit to something that to worship to something that Allah loves, and you continue doing it, because you're gonna get bored and you're gonna get tired of it, you keep going, you keep going, you keep going keep pushing, resilience pushing.
Patients don't give up. That's the third type of patients.
Now the patient's about calamities and tragedy, it's split into two as well.
The second one, it's not split into two, it's split into many levels. Some people are very patient, some people are patient, just enough. Jacobo Allah is Salam is saying this is a tragedy. And the type of patients that I'm going to exercise to this tragedy is the highest form of patients, which is called Beautiful patients. What is beautiful patients therefore,
beautiful patience is when you go through a hardship.
And the only one you complain to is Allah and no one else.
Now, sometimes you need counseling, you need to go to someone to talk to, that's completely fine. And most of us are like that most of us need that most of us have to do that. Sometimes you need to tell the parents and tell you what I can tell you asked me to tell someone tell you, brother, you need to tell a counseling to tell someone, you need to share it with someone to sharing your plight. Now all of that is except when you stood and you still are being patient.
But if you want the highest form of beautiful patience is the patients of Dr. Cole Balaguer center. And that is I'm going to reserve my complaints and my words and my sorrow and how I feel to myself.
You know how sometimes we feel like we need to let someone know, to give us sympathy, sympathy.
Some of us do that on social media.
How I'm feeling today. So what they call it, feeling something. There's an app that lets you put how you feel.
Who's who you're talking to whoever reads my posts. Who are they? I don't know, whoever, whoever cares. I don't know if they care or not. And they put you as a sad face, or a crying face.
the olden days we used to visit each other. It's the quality choice to sit and talk face to face.
send each other a gift or something or letter.
Now it's an emoji.
There you go likely to go.
That's it. These are how we sympathize with people.
If you were to see my face while I'm poking that emoji to straight face, like
on the other side, or I'm really, really happy, I'm just like, this
doesn't work like.
It's like, I'm gonna kill someone.
hate this world, are these guys feeling like they don't even know how I feel. But I'll send them a crying emoji anyway, to show them that. I've also got feelings.
Everybody wants to everybody wants sympathy.
Obviously, there are sincere people, there are people who send you a crying emoji and they mean it. And they're really sincere, and they call you and they remake it for you. Allah knows who those people are. I'm not judging everyone. But we have to monitor ourselves to the highest pinnacle, if you're at the pinnacle beauty patients is the people who are able, strong enough to only talk to one last panel.
So that's beautiful patients.
Now, brothers, when you get those, you're not married, when you get married. Your wife is going to show you a cute type of
you know, simple, wanting your sympathy. All right, no, sometimes some sisters, they see their husband and they just love the attention. That's cute. That's a nice thing.
all right, and then
God knows where it takes you.
It's nice husband and wife.
Some time sometimes. You know wives like their husbands to tell them how they feel.
husbands don't really talk about how much they feel. Men don't do that much. Every now and then it's nice. If your intention is to bring your wife closer to you and have a good conversation. That's fine. But Jacoba Allah is Salam was serious here. And he said for southern Geneva Allahu Stein or Allah Mercy whom Allah will assist me against your plots, absolute trust in Allah subhanaw taala and the pinnacle for
my brothers and sisters in Islam, what happens next?
