Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah. While early he was a big man in a Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Before I begin today, the story of use of Alayhis Salam, I just like to take a couple of minutes to remind you of the next 10 days that we're approaching. From tomorrow it will be the first day of the hedger because the krisan hasn't been cited tonight. Therefore, tomorrow, the first day of that hedger and then for the next 10 Nights will be the best days in the year after Ramadan. According to the Quran, Allah says, well, February were the early national.
So then Asha Dodoma, mostly agree that they are the 10 days of the hedger in the beginning.
And we increase in our good deeds during these days.
Whatever you do, do a little bit more, something you weren't doing, add a little bit more.
It's not good for Muslim to stay on autopilot. You got to go up and down sometimes. And forgive. Be easy on your Muslim brothers and sisters. Be better to your neighbors. Make a decision to answer people's calls when they call you as much as you can. To be more patient with people at work at school with your family.
Add a couple of more, maybe a few more than that bit more Sooners during the day.
Michael don't hit the floor a couple of hours, just out of the blue.
Grab the Quran or your iPads or iPhones, whatever you want. Recite an extra 100. Yet, if 100 is too long for you recycle Allah who had about 50 Maybe 40 times there'll be 100
of by heart, listen.
Simple things like that while you go about your daily life.
Also, it's a sunnah to fast, if you want to fast, all of them, or some of them one day on one day off a couple of days. Or if you don't want to fast at all, that's fine. But at least try to fast the ninth day, which is next Saturday, inshallah.
Who knows what the ninth day is? The Day of Arafah the people in house will be at a place called data for the best day to Allah and the entire year. After the night of little Qatar is the day of alpha
and the Day of Arafah. Allah forgives over 3 million people in housing the shaitan throws the dust on his head saying all the work that I've done has gone lost. What we do here since we're not on house is that we fast that day.
in Sahih, Muslim, this hadith
is collected there where the Prophet sallallahu sallam said,
I anticipate he said I anticipate when he says I anticipated means that what's going to happen that fast thing this day, Allah forgives the sins of one year past and one year forward.
The minus sins of course, not the major sins, major sins, this is a time for us to repent from them say Oh ALLAH forgive me from this major sin. And I promise you, I will not return to it. If you do it again do the same Tober from major sins. For those of you who want to do an up here,
the hush people they do an OP here that will pay the quarterback and sacrifice of the sheep or cow. Even seven people can do a cow, one sheep per family.
Seven families can do a whole a whole cow
the or whatever you can afford, some people can't afford except a chicken, no worries, a goat good. But it has to be among the best that you can afford.
The people in house will do that on the 10th day, which is read day. And then for the next four days.
We here can share what the people of whom are doing in these 10 days. And it is the following so they can prepare for tomorrow. I'll tell you this now, for every household. It is a highly recommended sunnah it's not fun
to intend to sacrifice a sheep
and Opia ate from it and give it to the poor if you can't eat from it doesn't matter send it to the poor anywhere around the world or here anyway.
If you're going to do that, the head of the family, whoever's here
sponsible for the family
it could be in this day and age the mother the woman, but normally the father is responsible
not cut his fingernails or cut any of his hair
for the next 10 days until the old hair is done
and anyone who intends to do it or let's say you say well I want to do one myself, then you also then don't cut your hair and don't cut your nails for the next 10 days to share with the people of house this thing of staying away from luxury and all that stuff.
So tonight, I have a shower if you can. I'm sure you all can
cut your nails tonight
can cut your nails tonight.
Tomorrow it starts
I asked him the night before or maybe you're right actually, maybe you are Yeah, you are right. Yeah, yeah, the night starts tonight. Correct. So it's too late to cut your nails in here.
It's not haram to cut your nails and it's not hard on you can even if you have the intention to do the old hair. It's not haram that's the majority opinion of the schools and the correct one without going into too much detail.
And there's no text that forbids says don't do it. But it's not a type that is forbidden. It's a type that is McCrone disliked to cut your hair or your nails if you intend to do that.
And that's for the person intending the head of the family on behalf of his family, not the wife and the children everybody else unless the wife wants to do it on her own and she does the same or a son wants to do it or a daughter on their own.
Any questions about that?
So let's now inshallah begin with the story of use of Alayhis Salam, we are going through the series of the prophets. That's why now for those of you who have been attending this is lesson 18. About now we have reached the story of the life of Yusuf Alayhi Salam. Continuing from where we left off last week, we already spoke through a quarter of the way of the story of Yusuf Alayhi salaam last week, and today we'll continue from there. So we left off with the brothers of use of throwing him in the well and bringing his shirt with fight fake blood on it and trying to trick their father they are called that a wolf ate their brother use of and Jacoba is Salam being wise. He said what a
minister for Wolf, this is.
He eats my son and doesn't bother to rip his shirt off. This is amazing. And that's when he said to his children.
Well, so well at Lacan, Phu Kham Amron No, no, no, your own knifes your own desires, your own evil whims.
Made you do this.
For sovereign Jamil I will exercise a beautiful patience. Wala Hoon, Mr. Anwar Danna Tasi. Allah will help me against the plots that you have plotted.
And to highlight this very quickly Jacoba alayhis salam from his mercy and compassion
avoids blaming his children directly. Did you realize what he said?
Your naps has led you astray. Your enough says commanded you and you obey John EFS. So he's blaming it on the cause of what they did of the of their sin. And that's the way we should think about our actions. What is causing our sin? What is there inside of you? That's wrong, that you need to fix? Is that jealousy? Is that hatred?
Is it pride? Is it competition for this world and materialism? Is it revenge?
Is it some kind of
opportunity that you're trying to get out of people isn't manipulation? What is it?
That's the problem for us for our sins. Look at the cause of the sins. The nafs always commands us to do wrong. The neffs what is the NAPS we are made up of naps
and row which is the soul and column
call it means your heart
the knifes is the desires
and these desires will always command you to do wrong because they are very selfish.
So that's why he blamed enough's
and then he said sovereign Jamil
I will exercise beautiful patients. Who remembers here what we defined beautiful patients as last week. Who can remember what is Southern Germany
Subbaraj me sober means patients, but there's different types of patients. This is beautiful patience. It is the highest form. But what is it?
reliance on Allah. Yeah, it does involve reliance on Allah
Hide it, like don't complain to people, correct.
That the highest form of patients in times of tragedy is that you only you are so strong that you only complain to Allah and no one knows that about you.
Now we do seek counseling, and that's all right. But for the strongest of the strong, they're able to just rely on Allah and you'll never tell that they're going through a problem. For Southern Germany. That's the one I'm going to choose. That's what jacobellis Adam went through, obviously, as a role model, my brothers and sisters, let's now continue from him. Back to the well.
Allah says in the Quran, wotja at say, Yara tune for our Salewa reader for Adela dalawa.
Suddenly, a caravan came past and they sent their servant who used to fetch water for them from the well. And suddenly he sees a child at the bottom called Bushra. Oh, what great news. This is Heather hula, here is a child, the Quran found for you. In those days, if you find a child, this is a fortune. Because you get to sell him or her in the market. Especially a boy sells for more because it could do more labor. The world of slavery. This is our fortune. A boy, young. That means he's got lots of years ahead, he'll cost a fortune to sell. That's why they were happy.
It says that his brothers went back to where the world was and they hit when the caravan came past. Before they took him they went up to them and said to them, He is our slave. His brothers instead of saying that he is his brother, brother. They said he's a slave. Why? Because they want to sell him. You can't sell a brother only a slave does that How much do you want for him? Allah replies in the Quran or shadow will be boxing what was shadow the bucks in the run him and
they sold him for a few Durham's a little bit of pennies. What can ofI him in his czar heading? Allahu Akbar, their hatred for their brother was so much that even while that was selling him, they were selling him
devalued like cheap.
And Xanthine meaning you know, when you look at a product, and you will not sell it less than a certain price, it means you value this product is that correct? Hey, they sold him for a very cheap price, which means they didn't even value that if they were if they had valued their brother in any any way they'll even ask for 10 times that amount. But because they didn't even value their brother that much. They didn't even say that he will be worth that much. See when you when you're like that you think everybody else thinks like you. But really they were the only ones whereas the people who bought bought him off the brothers they thought was gonna make us 10 times that amount.
What can you feed him in his day then they were though they saw him as insignificant when they sold him.
And then Allah says, What else a Ruby da. They hit him. And I made him as if he was merchandising the back and they headed off these people who found him in the well and bought him off his brothers. They headed off to Egypt.
Because we said that Jacoba is certain lived in East Palestine.
And close to so it's closer to Egypt. And they went to Egypt was the closest country and obviously in Egypt, there was a Pharaoh.
Pharaoh is like a king of Egypt. That's what they call him.
And it was it had a strong government. It was wealthy, it was advanced. It was everything. So obviously they go there because people are going to pay more.
When they reached Egypt, they put yourself to the market
and they came along
a man and his wife.
This man was not any man. He was the treasurer of all of Egypt, the Minister of Economy, the Minister of Finance for the under the Pharaoh and the pharaohs
Government, the biggest minister of finance for all of Egypt, when you are the Minister of Finance, you control everything. You control it more than the Pharaoh
and his wife. Now the thing about this man is that he was a nice man, a generous man, a kind man.
But he was also impotent. impotent means that he could not have children.
His wife could, but he couldn't.
And subhanAllah some say she was his wife married. Other say she was just his mistress. And I think Allahu Allah, I lean more towards that he was she wasn't really his wife, wife, but she was called his mistress, which means miraculously because Allah causa Umbra to disease, and people use the same disease.
And the tafsir sometimes he'll say that she was just known as his woman. But he couldn't actually do anything with it because he was impotent.
And some say she was his wife doesn't really matter, partner, defector wife, all the same thing in those days. So
they offered to buy him and his wife will call his wife said to him, by him, he can serve us for long years, we can make him a slave for us. Or we can adopt him as our own child. Oh, not the either who wanted Allah says well home Leia, Sharon, and that didn't even know what they were buying. They had no idea who this young boy is. He is a messenger and a prophet from Allah. Can you imagine that? A messenger a prophet, you're going to be raising for the next years in your life, and you're thinking going to make them a slavery and son and I had no idea he is a prophet, a message from Allah from above seven heavens, amazing. Welcome layer children, while they didn't know what they
Allah says, now hearing this Quran here, it's a little prelude here, a little preview, little little break, if you like.
Allah says, and so
we safeguarded yourself
how do you safeguard him, he's a slave. They took him as a slave. Ah, sometimes, sometimes, the thing that you see as bad,
may be good for you.
We may see if we don't know the story, we may see that his family is where his security is. But in this case, his family was where his danger was. And being a slave, under strangers in a strange land far away from his family now became his security.
This is not something to be proud of. This is something to feel very sorrowful about that he went through this emotional and psychological agony, pain. To give us an example, Allah says, if you are going through certain pain, even with your family, I've got an example for you with Yusuf Alayhi Salam. And remember, this story is being told to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in the year of grief. Remember the year of grief. When his wife died, his uncle died, he had no protection and his own family Muhammad SAW said that his family is kicking him out of the land. And he had just gone to apartment it threw rocks at him, all of his tribe, all of his people, all of his family are kicking
him out. He's got no support. And Allah is bringing the exact similar hardship of use of a salaam to give him comfort.
He's not telling him suck it in, suck it up. Is not telling him toughen up. Allah is telling him number one, you are not alone. And number two,
don't give up. This is just a temporary hardship. And from it, there's going to be so much good coming out. I think Darla Matt said that it was in this time that Allah sent down in Mr. Los Rios run in the nursery, Yusra with every one hardship, there are many, many aces, we just don't see them yet. And Allah repeats it again, in ilottery useful to make it confirmed. The problem was with us we're not patient enough.
Keep going and see what comes out the other side, exercise positivity and as much as you can, and you will and everything starts with a fork. My brothers and sisters, Allah says We protected him like that as a slave. Nobody asked about him. So no problem. Nobody cared for him. That was better for him.
And he was raised under the most powerful man and woman in Egypt. Food, clothing, shelter, protection, everything.
In that time, Allah subhanaw taala says, and so we raised him, Allah raised him and we taught him the meanings of interpretating or the knowledge of interpreting dreams.
And we taught him other wisdom
And that accompanies the dreams, the wisdom with the interpretation so he would interpret the dream and he can tell you what to do about it.
Absolute wisdom, who knows what the meaning of wisdom is in Arabic Al hikma
is to know, how to place something in its right place. What the sheet if Mr. Handy wisdom is for you to know how to use your knowledge in the right place, putting things in the right place, that is wisdom. It's not easy to know where something goes and what to do. Brothers and sisters, Yusuf alayhi salam grew up until he was about in his early 20s
and will first sit down and say there's differences of opinions about this. Some say he reached the age of about 28. Some say he was in somewhere between 18 and 28. By the time he sees his family again, he was close to 40.
But at this point, he was in his prime age in his low 20s.
And he had blossomed,
and he was magnificently beautiful and handsome, beyond description.
In sahih, Muslim and Sahih Bukhari rasool Allah Azza wa sallam said that when he went into the heavens in his throat when Mirage, he said, I saw in the heavens,
use of Allah, His salah,
for either whoever he says behold before me
can bet three he was like the full moon
compared to all the stars.
If he put everyone,
trillions of people from the beginning of time except for Melissa except for demolays Salam he was the most handsome is because Allah created with his own hands, laser chemically shed is no we cannot describe allah how he made him. But Allah made him from scratch from the beginning, he was the most beautiful, often comes use of a cell and you put all these trillions of people in one place. And then make use of ISIL and walk among them.
He will catch your eye as clear
attentive as the full Moon when you see it among the stars,
makes the stars fade away.
And he said some a lie there was Sanlam for it will either be called OT or chakra German. Use of was given half of the beauty of Earth half the beauty of all people.
What is that half of beauty? How can you describe half of beauty? One half is shared by everyone and the other half uses by himself.
You can't describe it. Allahu odd. What did he look like? Exactly? Can't describe it. Even Rasulullah sallallahu is trying to describe it. He can't. He says he's like the full moon compared to the stars when he looked at it. And he's been given half of all beauty. That's that's, that's the best description.
imagine with me.
He is a wise man.
The most intelligent and knowledgeable along with his father Jacobian the entire Earth in his time. The most handsome is them beautiful.
He is a slave. No one cares about him.
No matter what he does. Nobody's going to blame him for anything.
Doesn't matter what he does. Doesn't matter what a slave does.
It doesn't matter he steals it his masters fault. He kills us his masters fault.
sleeps with a woman masters fault. No one cares about the slave.
On top of that, he is with
a woman who has two things.
Extreme power and status
and extreme beauty as well.
Number six, even if somebody wanted to harm him or blame him, he's protected.
if you wanted to murder someone, it's called the it's the perfect crime.
Because he's got it all. He can do anything he wants and nothing will happen to him he'll get away with it normal blending.
The woman the Aziz the treasurer, his wife started to become attracted to him, day by day, month by month, year by year.
She's a woman of status and power.
seducing a slave who is the one that's going to ruin their own grip
It'll be the woman, not use of Elisa.
Obviously, they knew he was a prophet and a messenger different story. But nobody knew that he was alone now wants to demonstrate to us the strength and power of fighting our desires, by giving us the example of use of la escena.
Young, strong, Allah says, well, Bella should double when he reached the pinnacle of his age, the prime of his age know what that means. It means he was physically the fittest and strongest and healthiest time of his life.
knowledgeable and intelligent, beautiful and handsome, I should do it now. Hawkman Allah says, We gave him from us knowledge, and wisdom.
And so we reward those who do good unto others. When you do good unto others, Allah gives you wisdom. For example,
you're walking with your children,
and you see a homeless person.
Your child says, Let's feed that homeless person.
You go and buy sushi. And you give it to the homeless person. You get your daughter or your son to give it to the homeless person.
You don't know how much wisdom and knowledge your child has just learned from that. They just don't know what yet. As they get older, they'll realize they'll tune in back to that childhood.
you've planted a seed.
That's what Allah says waka Dalek energies in Mycenaean. Just like we rewarded yourself with knowledge and wisdom. He said we also reward in the same way those who do good medicine means someone who does more does more than what they are asked to do. More than what you're obliged more than your obligation. These what separates other people apart other people that say why should I do more than what I have to do? I'm not obliged to do one single cent more one single action more. That's not what a movement is taught to do. Allah loves the Mycenaean telling a little story quickly while we're going here. I think it was Abdullah abnormal, or was it even our best or probably more
how we're one of them. What happened was in a time of after processes death, this person lived. He had a servant, a woman a lady servants slave, and she brought some water for him.
As she was spilling the water for him, I think was making will do the actual jar or the kettle fell onto his head and cut him.
Now obviously, as a human, you're in pain, you don't think
she could see that he reacted angrily and he was about to say something but before he said it, this woman was intelligent. And she had memorized the Quran.
So she used the most powerful weapon she has the Quran.
Immediately the first verse that came to her mind was welcome to the minimum length.
And those who restrain their anger
he said, God Kelvin Toka easy. Okay, I'll restrain my anger because it's a movement. Allah said I'm going to restrain mine because Allah likes it.
So she knows about it and she continues.
Well, I think any nurse and those who pardon people
said I've pardoned you I will never mention ever.
She knows more. Wala who your head booty Marcin and Allah Who loves those who do extra good on to others. He said you are you are a free woman go for the sake of Allah.
This is the example of a moment
I don't know who's more amazing him or her.
My Brothers and Sisters in Islam. We move on use of Alayhis Salam one day
he's in the house. And this is his wife comes along.
She is dressed differently in a seductive manner. Anyone have any nieces or nephews today? I'm not going to look at you.
Okay whenever the children this is now a story of a seduction.
This is M A rated
brothers and sisters Halal ma
the wife of the Aziz enters dressed differently in a seductive manner.
Allah says in the Quran
what are what that would let the who if he baked here, and the woman whom he was in her house, Allah is telling us is in her house. She's the one who is on authority. She's the one who controls everything. She's the one who is in power, so it's completely her fault.
She seduced him or whether to mean she seduced him. She invited him to do haram with
UNEF Sihi. Again, you say the knifes this woman no
Those with the vulnerability of the men is
and instead of fearing Allah subhanahu wata Iona she decides to think about her own desires, and attack that vulnerability in that men using the most powerful weapon she has, which is her body and her voice.
And she said to him, what Allah cut in, and she locked all the doors of the house, so he doesn't
escape. So she knows that he's a righteous man. She knows that this guy
is so different to any other men she's ever met.
That Believe it or not, he will run away from an opportunity like this. He will literally get up and run.
So she locks the doors before she even does anything.
What does that show you?
He is known for his righteous reputation and his strength that he doesn't fall prey to his own desires.
We'll call it hate luck. And she said to him
I'm all yours. Do whatever you wish.
Hater. That's what it means.
Come and get it. That's basically a hater. Luck means you can recite it in different ways. Hey, Turlock, he Turlock hit to luck. Hit to Mr. High yet, which means I'm ready for you, I have prepared myself for you.
There are so many ways you can recite it.
So in other words, she seduced them in every different form,
that any other man would have been finished in the first five seconds. He would be falling prey. His seduced his on that's it. He is going to do the Haram thing. Use of Allah, His salah, what happened? He immediately replies.
Allah says, What Oh, I
see what's going
Immediately after she said on yours, he did not hesitate. He said, I seek protection from Allah.
I seek protection with Allah.
He's saying, oh, Allah save me, protect me.
And then he starts to remind her to try to persuade her to move away.
In the Haoran be, my Lord brought demons in Your Husband, husband is his Lord, meaning he is his master, my master your husband, I sent him with why he's looked after me. Like woman, if you don't have shame, you don't have self respect, at least show some loyalty and respect to the man who looked after me just for him. You want to ruin your own reputation. At least think about that man who was good to you and good to me that ruin his reputation.
He's trying to persuade her and trying to plead to her that she cannot hear anything. Allahu Akbar. She was so attracted to him, that she couldn't stop herself.
When he realized that she was not going to stop, Allah gives a little indication about something here to show us his human form. He says we'll look at the handmade to be He. She was all over him, wanting everything from him in Haram were handmade behind Allah.
As for him, he almost fell prey to her to if it wasn't that he had seen the sign of his Lord.
What is the sign of his Lord till this point? I don't know what it is, and firstly don't have not come to a unanimous agreement. The point is, there was something about yourself what he had learned from Allah subhanho wa taala. And something that he had seen in his master, which made his conscience and his shame, be too strong. That overpowered him, that his temptations, his hormones, his lust did not rise too much.
Which tells us my brothers and sisters, the greatest medicine
against our sexual desires is shame.
and guilt is a good thing. Guilt is not good for everything. But in this case, it is also fear of Allah whenever Allah talks about Xena adultery and for
On occasion, you'll find in the Quran that he talks in a harsh manner, in a fearful like he tells you be careful, this is what's going to happen. It's a dirty place Jahannam this why? Because sexual frustration comes from fire. It's hate, and then he can extinguish heat
is water of course. And when you remember the punishment of Allah in such detail, it extinguishes the hate.
Except in the Khaled of course, but in the Haram it extinguishes the hate my brothers and sisters in Islam
he's he's Shane killed it.
And that's what also was said Lam said if you have no shame, do whatever you want, man.
be whatever you want to be. This day and age we have that you have no shame. That whatever you want, no profit can change or help you.
But shame is part of iman. Modesty is part of iman hijab is part of modesty. lowering our gaze is part of modesty.
Looking after our character and our and our demeanor in front of opposite genders is part of modesty.
Even men who like men these days,
fight your desire. Fight your desire, like every other bad desire.
Or women fight it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala
you have something that's bothering you a problem Find it. Don't fall prey to it. Allah tells us fight your knifes
and train your knifes
and punish your naps and reward your knifes it's like a child anything in life that challenges you. This is called jihad
to fight your bad and evil intentions and desires and continue to do that.
Those negative urges
so then use of Allah His salaam Allah says he stood up and he started running away from her
towards the door.
And she raced off to him.
I want you to imagine this is a marathon man. They're literally running as fast as they can.
He's running as fast as he can for the door like someone's asked him to kill him. And she races right off to him
and manages to catch, grab the back of his shirt. And she pulls it aggressively. So hard. Allah says we'll cut that commuter home in Joburg. She ripped his shirt from the back.
What does that tell you?
That desire was monstrous.
And his running away
was extreme fear.
He's not afraid of her. He's not afraid of the desire. He's afraid
of angering Allah. He's afraid of the fire.
That's what he's afraid of. That's a real man. That's a real woman.
My Brothers and Sisters in Islam
when she pulled him by shirt,
it kind of move back a little bit and then suddenly the front door opens and who do they see
the Aziz the treasurer
what's gonna happen now
he's shocked. Use of SLM is shocked
but the only person who is not shocked is the guilty one.
That's a sign of guilt.
She is the first one that spoke
listen to what she says.
What Alfa say either her little Burb Allah says and then they bumped into they collided with her. Her master her husband, her man at the door. Called immediately she said
measures are Omen Arada be Annika so
what is the punishment of somebody
who wants to do something evil to your own wife?
Was the master thinking about that?
No. Did he asked her. Now?
Why did you say that? She's guilty.
But why she's saying who? She just accused him.
She accused him and blamed him as if he was the one seducing her.
And then she added something really smart. You know there are there are smart people. So I don't like you know, teaching our children to say don't tell them you're smart. Don't say that. Don't even say about yourself. I'm smart.
is not necessarily a good thing or a bad thing. Smart just means that you're smart at doing something you know how to do it better than others. So you're smart at stealing, is that a good thing?
You're smarter Millipede, manipulating the Smart is have,
you know, anything for modulating all that stuff. They can also be smart in bringing people together. Building
intelligent, wise, knowledgeable, good.
You got great skills, masha Allah, good. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam. But she was smart in a bad way. She says, What is the punishment of someone who wants harm to your own family, meaning seducing them in a news agenda or other
except that he be imprisoned or you give him a painful torture. Now, you might not know what's so smart about that? Well, the law of the land that time was that anyone who seduces the wife or a family, a woman, family member of somebody who is elite,
has to be put to death. She knew that. But she didn't want her husband to think about death. And if he thought about death, and doesn't know how to get out of it, she just gave him an idea of how to run away from it. So she doesn't want us to die. She wants to keep him for another part two series. So she says to him, except that he gets imprisoned or tortured. So at least and if he if he doesn't stay with me at least to be in prison, maybe some time I can still work on him. Torture him, he'll come back. We'll treat him maybe it's a nice thing. I'll treat him he'll get better.
But don't kill him.
So she put it in her husband's head, imprisonment or torture.
And then he used to assign replied color here or whatever. And I've seen, she is the one that seduced me. Allah says, he cuts the story short now. And it looks like they went to a court and they brought a few people because then Allah says, We're Shahida Shahid, Amin Alia, a family member from hers witnessed against her. So it doesn't tell us what happened in the middle because not necessarily Allah says, We give you the best of stories, meaning we only tell you what's necessary. We don't go off on tangents, and bla bla, bla bla and say a whole lot of things. Our stories are the best, we tell you what you need to know and get to the chase, you know, to the point. So it looks
like a little semi court happened with family members only because they don't want to ruin the reputation of this elite woman. And a family member from her said, I know.
They say that there was a shirt ripped. So apparently a shirt was ripped. And he says let's look at his shirt. If it's ripped from the back, it means she's the one that seduced him. And if it's ripped from the front or set at the opposite, if it's ripped from the front, he is the one who seduced her if it's ripped from the back, and then she seduced him.
And when they found that the shirt was ripped from the back, what happened? They didn't punish her. They didn't do anything. Her husband took the role. And he said in the home NKD Khan
says your plot and your plan.
In Nikita Kunal the
Kula in Makeda, could nauseam.
You and women like you, like you the way you are not all women, women who are like you in that way.
If you plot and plan
it's the most dangerous plot and plan like we can't even think like that.
When a woman like you wants to plot, very dangerous.
So he turns to yourself and says you also for iodine, however, just look yourself, just ignore what happened. Forget about it. Don't talk about it anymore. Just bury it. Move on. We're still pretty damn big. And you my wife just asked God to forgive you. They believed in God. But they made partners with God, you know, the pharaohs and Egyptians but they believed in God and needs to seek forgiveness from God. Whoever that God was says will start feeling this I'm big seek forgiveness from your sin. So here it tells you a bit about the husband, it tells you that the husband is weak. He's got low self esteem. He's not strong. It looks like the wife wears the pants and she's the one
that you know, controls everything.
It looks like the husband doesn't have much regular, much jealousy for his wife, right because of his impotency, which obviously explains a lot about him. And
he just wanted to move on.
He knows that his wife was guilty, but he didn't want to talk about it.
So now he went back Yusuf Ali salaam to the danger of the home of the woman. They say her name was Ali hilum what her name was within the Israelite traditions, they say that her name was
in Arabic zuleikha Like
Not in Arabic that's in Hebrew because Allah
obviously when someone powerful like that does something like that words gonna get out.
Words gonna get out.
And some other elite women started hearing this information because obviously families elite so that elite people will hear about it. Allah says what call and this was done in Medina, a bunch of women in the city heard about the news.
And they started to backbite and gossip about the treasure his wife in a bad way.
innuendo gossip, and they said,
this woman, who is the elite in Egypt, seduces her own slave.
She has gone crazy, she has gone nuts. She has lost her mind. who seduces they're enslaved, this is terrible. She is up, then she uses a slave down there. What's that?
When she heard about their Bossip, she plotted again.
So she invites them to a little brunch, sometime in the day before lunch after breakfast. And she puts all types of vegetables and fruit. She deliberately put stuff that needs to be cut to be eaten.
And she puts some knives for them to cut their own fruit and vegetables to eat.
Apples, potatoes, whatever it was.
So they came over.
I didn't know how they are. I mean, they don't really care.
That Setia just introduced a slave. They just liked the gossip.
That's how most people are brothers and sisters. If you've done a mistake, people start talking about and you think about what people are saying it's gonna get worse.
So all you got to do is own your mistake.
Own your mistake. Yes. And say I made a mistake.
Because people will talk for about a week or two or three or four or five.
And they can't be bothered keep thinking about they want more drama.
You know, we don't watch a movie twice unless you're bored
you know, you watch a series that's it. And this is a really good series, like editoral or something which I haven't watched yet. They say it's really good.
But you know, you watch series want to go to the next one. That's these women were like that. Let's go and find out.
So they go to the invitation. Yep, yapping and talking and then suddenly
zuleikha They a wife, she calls you have to come out.
Allah says fella Mara Aina hall when the women saw him a cabal Navajo, they glorified Him
what Katana Adi Han
and they didn't realize that they cut their hands over and over again.
Capanna is a plural word.
Katana means once but when you add the shutdown becomes top partner you express it it means chloral they cut their hands more than three times and did not notice the blood and the pain until later. That tells you that they were hypnotized by his beauty that they lost sensors or sensors in their body Allahu Akbar wahconah Ha Shatila Allah and they all screamed, Oh, glory be to God. Marhaba Bashar he is not a human being in her country. He is a noble honorable Angel Godsent is an angel fallen from the sky?
Then use this as a pickup line guys. Don't you dare. I'll come and hunt you down. Have Khaled pick up points with your wife and husband. Brothers and Sisters in Islam. He fell an angel fell from the sky
the Aussies his wife looks at the women and she says Oh call it Fidel. He couldn't let me know too many fee. This is the man that you blamed me for. Look at you.
At least I didn't cut my hands. You guys have gone all the way out. If I'm crazy, then you guys are 100 times more crazy than me.
Now when the woman realized that they were
she got him. She did them over.
She rolled them
now when you roll someone if you can't beat them,
So they started going you're right, you're right. Use of
use of what's going on. He wouldn't talk. So then she said
While a quarter hour to one I've seen I'm the one who seduced him. So you can tell they became friends.
As a teacher, I see this with girls and boys.
Girls had this way of grouping together and sharing secrets. It doesn't matter if it's a good secret or a bad secret doesn't mean it's gonna ruin someone's life or make it better. The fact that you shared secrets with me when our friends were BFFs How do you become a BFF? Those become BFFs when they share their Inner Inner dark secrets and they share the same motives doesn't matter good or bad? The be careful from those friends brothers and sisters. Because as soon as you fight with them, they're going to expose everything about you.
So a good friend is somebody who is loyal and covers your secret and advises you when you say something wrong.
doesn't let you do the wrong advisors you my brothers and sisters they became friends because they shared now the same motive. She said I suggest him and if he doesn't do what I'm telling him he is going to be imprisoned or he's going to be tortured so then they felt for him they liked him you know good looks and everything I said he also just do what she wants Come on we don't want to see you in pain something about good looks you know now they don't want harmony in their hearts flutter for him they're worried about him. So go and do the heart on
that night use of alayhis salaam pray to Allah night long crying and making such as the to Allah and shivering called are besieged No, I have boiler Yeah, I mean, I don't want any delay. Crying out in the night. Oh Allah, the dungeon is more beloved to my heart, compared to what they're calling me to do.
Does anybody love a dungeon?
Even he doesn't love the dungeon? But when you compare it with something worse than the dungeon, the dungeon seems like heaven like paradise. How can he say the dungeon is more beloved a hub. It's in the heart more beloved to my heart than what they're calling me to do. Because he understands the imprisonment in the dungeon of Xena Hellfire the dungeon in Hellfire is worse than the dungeon of this world. When you look at the dungeon of hellfire, the dungeon of this world seems like Jana
and so you love it more.
So I have Muslim from Switzerland said I saw in hellfire
a place deep. Like this is hellfire. Inside of hellfire there was a valley and inside that valley, there is a deep well, Allahu Alem how far this wall goes down. And I could hear people screaming underneath I looked closely. And there were naked men and women hung upside down to side this the note inside this well, and there was fire coming out even harder than the rest of jahannam. It had come up to them and burned them and they would scream and they passed and everything fell into the mouths of others. And then she realized Sam said they are the Sunette they are the adulterous and fornicators of this ummah, of your own man of the Muslims. They're punishing, they're being punished
So now when a Prophet knows this, suddenly the dungeon is more beloved in
Mindanao dominating we're in Costa Rica finally but not only that, he says oh my lord if you don't turn them away from me, US will ala you know fall to them or fall prey to them what a communal journey or become among the ignorant. Ignorant doesn't just mean not knowing something boys, brothers sisters, in Arabic when you say Jane, it has several meanings. The Jargon here does not mean someone who doesn't know something. As Yeah, who is somebody who knows the wrong and goes for it.
As your head is someone who follows their desire just follows the dollars like an animal worse than an animal that's
that's an ignorant person.
Allah says first Azure Bella hora, his Lord responded to him
for sort of fun, okay, the one
he turned them away in their plots from harming him. In no horse, send the lightning. Allah is all knowing, all hearing, I think, you know, Cindy Albacete sent me out in the hall who was sending out
Halim he is the most knowledgeable and the one who hears everything he hears his pain.
Allah says and so the, the husband of the Azita Aziz and the wife, they went around, and they plotted to find a way to incriminate use of a salon to make an end up in prison. So they went around banging on a drum, everybody gathered, and then they announced, this man has seduced that as his his wife.
And so they're requested dungeon
and he ended up in the dungeon.
Allah Now skips the story and says, what the Halima who says no
and in the dungeon to young men
accompanied him. They went inside the dungeon with him. And so they became his companions
and messenger of Allah, out of all the people of the world. He makes him a messenger for the next at least nine years to just two criminals.
Amazing. In Islam, nobody
is insignificant. Every person is a potential Muslim. Every person is a potential repentant. There is always good in someone.
To the last breath, a prophet assumes well of people. We've already gone through that with Prophet Lord than Ibrahim as you saw, and no Hunter rest, and even the sin.
Allah says, Now his encounter with the two men of the dungeon use of Alison did not think of them any less. He looked at them like everyone else, and he looked at his mission, the same obligation to them as anyone else.
Allah says one of them immediately said to use of, I saw in my dream this, and the other one says, I saw in my dream that,
like, it looks like they had been acquainted to him very briefly. And they knew that he was a righteous man with knowledge. It looks like he had already told them stuff and they have realized that he knows things human beings don't know. So one of them said to him, I saw a dream last night
that there was bread on top of my head, and birds were eating that bread off my head. And the second person said, I saw myself pressing grapes
Please tell us the meanings of these dreams because we see from your face that you're a righteous man. You look like a righteous man, Allah. Even if he is incriminated falsely accused brothers and sisters, the innocent person has a sign on his face or her face.
And the criminals knew it.
In an rockin and Watson in which you see you among the good doors, before use of valet Salem interprets their dream, guess what he does?
no food will come to you. Unless I will tell you exactly what it is before it gets to you.
What is he doing? He's showing the knowledge that Allah gave him. That is a knowledge that is a messenger of Allah. And secondly, check this out. He's choosing the right time to teach them something. They're hungry. Let's eat first.
And then I'll talk to you because when you ate, you're going to listen better.
And that's the sign of a good teacher chooses the right time. Some people want to give Dawa they choose the worst times and say the worst things. They're emotionally fueled. You can even tell when they write and motional fueled people don't listen to emotionally fuel people.
They listen to people are objective. And at the right time, Allah says for that good enough, are designed to remind when the reminders will work. So he went until they eat. And when they ate and sat down, the first thing he started to teach them was about Allah to hate. The oneness of Allah. Yes. Sahiba is Sydney. Oh, my friends of the prison.
And he started telling them many gods are better, or is it one God better to believe in? They said, One God says I lift the people like this. And my fathers are prophets and messengers, and they worship only one God and this is what they taught me and I am now teaching you and he started to teach us about the Oneness of Allah. The best salvation is first of all, connecting yourself with Allah and believing in Him in the right way. Everything else will follow.
One person said to me when I don't know if you guys some of you were old enough. Did everyone heard of Mother Teresa? Mother Teresa. She was a right. A woman of righteousness to the Christians a good daughter, she had so many good days. We don't deny that she did a lot of good for every all walks of life. When she died. I had a Muslim brother, not very knowledgeable and then he comes up to me was frustrated. He says well Mother Teresa go to Jana.
I said that's up to Allah but if Mother Teresa and the likes of her died disbelieving in Allah, then Allah will not put her in Jannah No.
She chose that says But why she did all the good to the people and all that stuff. Why wouldn't God do that? So
if you work for Ford, would expect Holden to pay you.
I'm going to tell you,
you work for a company other company has to pay. No.
You work for the people a lot will give you the reward that you deserve from the people. There'll be a month build monuments out of you. They'll talk about it for the rest of the ages. But in the hereafter you have nothing with Allah's panel, Dad. You work for Jesus Christ. Allah will say Jesus Christ you come here. Can you prevent them? He'll say, My Lord, I am innocent from them.
But we acknowledged her good work and she was a great role model, but she worked for a different purpose. So whatever you work for this is what Allah will give you. What a lesson in insanity Lanessa you will not receive except for your work for oneness. I also for your Allah will look at the type of work you did and your intentions. Why did you do it? Did you donate for the people can call you a good person? Or did you donate for the sake of Allah? Did you help this person? Because you want to benefit from them? Or did you do it? Because you want the reward from Allah subhanaw taala? Why did you do it?
So then he taught them about this. And then he starts to interpret that dreams in the end, because that follows afterwards. He says to the first one.
As for one of you, you are going to be crucified on the cross, and your body will be left there and the vultures will eat your head.
And as for the second person,
you are going to be released and you will become the person who presses wine for the Pharaoh.
Hold the umbrella, the fetus left the end. That's the interpretation. There is no more than that. Nobody will interpret anything else. In other words, our Lord taught me therefore it has to be it has to be right. Don't question Allah's command has come through
time passed. And this is exactly what happened. The other one went to was crucified. And the last one he left to become the wind presser of the pharaoh as he was leaving Yusuf alayhi salam says to him something he said was good near in the Arabic mentioned my name mentioned my case mentioned my case, to your Lord to your master.
he wants to be innocence he wants he wants his innocence to be known. Allah says that the shaytaan made that prison companion forget.
Now Alana have had different opinions on why he forgot it Allah making up your cell modem and make him forget the shaitan made him forget, some Allah say that use of Alayhis Salam should have asked Allah to save him. Not seek, you know, intercession.
But that's, that doesn't for me. And for a lot of them, it doesn't fit right.
The other Allah might say no,
truly the shaitan made him forget because the shaitaan wants to harm upon yourself and doesn't want the message to come out.
And the companion was still waking his face. So listen to the shaitana Forgot to mention he was thinking more about his freedom, or it does show us is as a Muslim or anybody. You are allowed to seek the help of someone who can do something for you. Like you can't you don't have to sit there and say don't ask anyone just ask Allah and that's it. That what couldn't rely on Allah is true. But you also have to do your part. So if you have connections you can write to someone who complete to someone you can lobby for someone that can help you then do it. And that's why I say and some people may disagree with this, but I think Insha Allah, it's right and Allah Subhana Allah may Allah
forgive me if I'm wrong, and I think it's right for the benefit of the ummah. That's why you know when you live in Australia and live in in certain countries like the and there are certain laws which govern you
instead of trying to fight those laws or I try to work within them for the benefit of the Muslim community. Try to use them try to lobby P MPs try to write to them try to write to ministers try to get that nothing wrong with that. If you can use the system in order to help the Muslim community the amount of this Masjid My Allah have mercy on him share with me like a father to me. He when He was he was different from the beginning, masha Allah, because he did that stuff. And he believed in that stuff. We now have a Muslim graveyard and Muslim cemetery. We didn't have that before. They used to bury people in plastic bags now. Alhamdulillah then I put them in coffins. Then I said, Now
we have to bury them in the in the white cloth and now they accepted it for us. We didn't have an Islamic marriage celebrancy Note hamdulillah Weber recognized Islamic celibacy for marriage. Right? There are many other benefits that they establish through the system. Why not use our brains so use of a salon use this person says mentioned me to your to your master, he's a carefree. He's a definite disbeliever believes in all these weird things. Pharaohs for the benefit. Tell him and if he's released, they can call people to Islam and teach them the religion of Allah. Why not?
But the shaitan made him forget it was at a time so you also follow his salaam stays in the prison. Allah says for length of rescission if the Bosnian he stays in the prison a number of years ba ba in Arabic when you say ba ba it's any number between three and nine.
All I'm assuming was between seven and nine years. He stayed for a long time. There is a narration but it's weak. I looked it up it says that Gibreel on a son came to us via Sudan in the prison and he said to him here use of when your brothers wanted to kill you who said
He He said Allah says when they threw you in the well who saved you said Allah said when the wife of the children wanted to seduce you who saved you? He said, Allah says What prevented you from asking Allah now to save you from prison? Now it makes sense for those of you for those who don't think about it properly, but actually the hadith is weak.
Right? hadith is weak. And you'll see later on where Mohamed Salah salah and the problem I was asked and then he talks about something that use of did and he says Why did he do that I would have done that and you'll see that he's using circumstances to help him so anyway, he stayed for a number of years seven to nine years in the prison and that's it nobody ever hears about use of Allah his center now he is forgotten
the Pharaoh sees a dream. Now I'll tell you that dream and finish the story around it and then we'll leave the rest of the part till next week inshallah.
The Pharaoh sees a dream.
In the Quran, Allah doesn't call him for our he calls him Malik.
And the reason Allah calls him Malik which means king, even though it was a pharaoh, is because Allah designated that name for the worst man on earth in history. The one who tried to kill Musa alayhis salam Moses later on he calls him Farah one because the word Pharaoh is hated by Allah because it denotes hierarchy, thinking he's a god and better than everyone else. But a king is a king. Now there are many kings or a prophet kings as well. And a king could be Justin face. So he wants to call that Pharaoh a king, what call and Maliko and this king was actually fair and good. So Allah didn't want to call him Pharaoh called him king. What kind of medic medic said, I see if he
comes to his VCRs and his advisors and I don't know who is alleged to know stuff. And he says to them, I saw
seven thin cows skinny cows eating seven beefy cows
should be the opposite but the skinny was eating the fat ones.
And I saw seven
The Quran doesn't say wait, it says symbol. But when you follow the context, you know that it is wheat, you'll find out later. Some stuff series will show you some translation with say corn, but it does not fit with the context. He says I see seven stocks that were green and beautiful.
And seven stocks not green but seven stocks he said that were healthy and seven stocks that were unhealthy and withered there's nothing in them nothing in the ear. In the ear. No seeds an eight year
old people Oh elites told me the meaning of my dreams told me the meaning of my dream. And Allah says they set off they just whatever just you know, dreams that you see every now and then they mean nothing. Now Allah is using a bigger plan. A bigger plan to bring use of Allah is salaam to a high position. That's when the ex prisoner he remembers use offices I can get you the interpretation send me send me. So they sent him. He goes to the prisoner says you're so what are your thoughts on the use of Oh, the truthful honest one, no. BitNet straightaway tells me Tell me the meaning of this dream and he tells him the whole dream. You're so Palestinian without any hesitation doesn't say why
didn't you mention me to the mirror? Why didn't you do this? No, no, no, just go straight to his duty.
the people of Egypt and the surrounding lands in Palestine, they will have the next seven years full of rain and vegetation. And their crops and wheat will grow abundantly.
And then after that, they will come seven years that will be full of drought, and they will eat away all the good years.
Then they will come one year. So 15th year where people will squeeze and press their veget vegetables and their and their weight and their barley to make oil and so on and so forth from it.
Behold, whatever you harvest from your crops, don't use them all. Eat only what you need, and store the rest of them and keep and keep the seeds in their ear, in the STEM in their ear closed. Why? So they can be protected. And so they can have a longer shelf life.
Not only they interpret the dream, but he gave them the solution so they don't fall into poverty.
Now here is where he says leave it in its ear so it can last longer. In agricultural science, they'll tell you you can look it up that if it was corn, corn doesn't last anything other stem in its ear for longer than about six months to two years maximum. Weight however, can last up to 10 years.
And that's why seven years. And that's what I rest more upon the wait.
So the prisoner goes and he tells the king did the interpretation and the king loves the interpretation and the solution. He goes, bring him to me.
So then he sends his vizier, and the vizier comes up to us and says, The King wants to see you.
And Yusuf Ali Salam refuses to get out of the prison.
He says, Go back to your Lord, and ask him about the case of those women.
The Pharaoh had heard about it.
But he had never dealt with it. And Yosef refuses to get out until he is
innocent, and his reputation is restored.
This is very wise.
Because he's going to come out 100 times more powerful than what he thought if he had come out normally. The king was probably going to give him an award, a little recognition, a position and go like little bit of money and go. But now, when the king saw that hold on, and he's been incriminated, then he's been imprisoned, then something special about this guy.
He calls the women straightaway.
I'll stop here.
And next week in sha Allah.
Keep hanging on the cliff. And in sha Allah will finish the story. There's much wisdom to be learned from a story of use of part three. Next week, Thursday, same place, same time. Insha Allah who died. Thank you for listening was Sallallahu levena Muhammad while earlier Sophia Jermaine was salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
