Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu wa sallam one and a V him carry him Halligan, Astana Sana to attempt to swim or be shortly so the way acidity and the lightning aka that tendon in the Sani of Kabul Kohli, my brothers and my sisters said Mr. Na come what I'm going to walk you over cattle.
Today in sha Allah to Allah, we will be starting the 12th Jews of the call an
old time flies over 12 years already has had to look at my dogs to make sure I didn't make a mistake there. So we're starting the 12th Joseph, and we're actually going to start from the just the end of the 11th Jews, which has the beginning of sort of loot. And Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here in this surah something really interesting. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his hair when it started to turn gray. He mentioned that it is sort of wood and its sisters who does that made his hair turn gray. And what is meant by that is the mention of his take on the dimension of steadfastness.
Within those sewers, how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was emphasizing the importance of being steadfast upon the deen and of course Allah subhana wa tada says in Surah 230 as well.
You know, Serato, Mr. Clean Serato leadin and unto Allah, he didn't have to be Pauline, right to have that. Surat, Mr. theme, the straight path but to abide by it to stay living according to the son of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to constantly be upon what Allah subhanho wa Taala
has legislated for us is not always going to be easy. And you know, the profits on the long run under usnm himself was an example to every single one of us. And so when we look at his example, and we look at who he was, and we look at how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was steadfast upon the deen
it, it shows us that, you know, we we probably don't do enough, right, we could be doing more. And I think and feel a lot of the time that as much as we might feel as though we are very religious and very connected to a loss of handball with ADD, I sometimes feel as though we are far from that, you know, we are we're missing out, we're missing out on a lot from the son of Muhammad Sallallahu added us and them we're missing out on you know, really and truly separating ourselves from this dunya and not, you know, not not giving into it constantly.
Now, of course there are ways where it's permissible for us to do certain things, and our Deen is flexible that way however,
the flexibility that is within the deen doesn't mean that that is the best way to be. And that's why we have this concept of
in Islam right the concept of
always striving to do what is better, always being conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and terrible de la hoca and nichetto who fell into contura hufa in New York knowing that you worship Allah subhana wa tada as though
as though you see him but because we don't see him know that he sees us, right so lots of bandwidth and is still aware of everything that we do, where we go what we say how we do it, you know, our thoughts internally, our words externally and stuff like that a lot. So kind of with that is completely and fully aware of it. But the the lifestyle that we live with sn is one that is not common within us. And I'll say that because I think and I honestly feel that if we were to do everything to its fullest, and what we mean by that is, you know, you might take this miswak and you just keep it in your mouth, like yeah, it's permissible. Yeah, it's permissible while I'm fasting is
permissible to use my miswak but is it what a loss of handling Tana wants me to do all day long does he want me to keep this in my mouth so that maybe a piece comes off? Or you know when it comes to anything else? You know, giving sadaqa to someone else? Are we doing it truly for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada? Are we doing it because we know we have to do it and we intend to do it. But going the distance to make sure that the sadaqa is given maybe in a way that the receiver doesn't even know who we are, that they're receiving it without us knowing it. I remember a brother was telling me once Pamela,
how you know when when he gives sadaqa he tries to
Make sure that no one knows it came from him. Right. And he was he was sharing this with me, not publicly, not with others, but he was sharing it with me, you know, privately. And he was saying that he feels for himself. That's what allows him to gain a connection closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala Adam than anything else that he does. So you make sure that his connection with Allah is built through doing sadaqa. But going the distance in giving that setup to people without them knowing that it's coming from him, either through someone else, or, you know, placing it for them without the people knowing, you know who it came from. So, that in itself is important and it's their karma
being firm upon the deen, you know, is what made the hair of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam start to turn Great. Now, what do we see here in this surah, in Surah, hood, a number of things. In fact, we can even, we don't have time in one hour to go through half of this sorta or even a part of the surah because so many stories of different prophets are mentioned. So what I figured I would do is go through some of them because some will be mentioned later on as well within the protocol.
So to begin with, you know, we start with looking at how a loss of handling data starts off the sutra, talking about the book The Quran, and the messengers of Allah subhana wa tanunda that he sent,
and who we're calling towards the oneness of Allah Subhana, WA, tada, then how Allah Subhana Allah is responsible for the provisions of every single one of the creation, right the creation of a lesson handling data, he's responsible for it. So that's mentioned as well. I'm literally just like flying through it to get to some of the stories,
then a loss of hanway data shows us how our attitude changes with certain circumstances from verses number nine to verse number 11. And a loss of hen with Anna says, if we give people a taste of our mercy, then take it away from them. So you give them some mercy and then take it away from them. They become utterly desperate and ungrateful. Because they received something and then it was taken away, it's gone. Right? Like, oh, we had it What happened? It was gonna you know, it was in our possession. And now all of a sudden, it's gone, right? You receive something and then, and then all of a sudden, it's gone. Like for example,
you know, you get a new phone, a new cell phone, you have it and then two days later falls down in is broken. You're like, man, it cracked or there's a dent on it. Right? And that little dent throws you off. The phone is perfectly fine. It's working fine. It's making phone calls, you can scroll in the screen isn't shattered, everything's perfectly fine on it. But there's a little dingy. Like,
just got it right, all of a sudden, like all that thankfulness is gone, right? It's just like, oh, man, it's been ruined. You know, a simple example like that. How will so can with Hannah says, if we give people a taste of our mercy, then take it away from them. They become utterly desperate and ungrateful. But then I must have handled it and it says, but if we give them a taste of prosperity, after being touched with adversity, they say my ills are gone. Right? My hardships are gone, and become totally prideful and boastful. Right. So whether we are giving something nice and is taken away, or we're given hardship, and then that's taken away, we're given goodness, we then start to
become, you know, prideful, or boastful, and you know, arrogant at times, and show off as though like, Oh, look at me, I'm perfectly fine. Yeah, you know, how do I eat good food and exercise a lot. And, you know, it became healthy and I lost weight, and I put on muscle and isn't, some have a lot. It's like, Wait, are you? Are you showing gratitude to you showing gratitude to yourself? Right, so Allah subhanaw taala is showing us there, you know, when he gives us a little bit after some hardship, and then it's taken away. We're like, Oh,
it was pointless. Shouldn't have had it in the first place. It was like a tease. Right? It just came into teased us like a teaser, and then a loss of Hannah Montana showing, you know, what if we give you prosperity after being touched with adversity, and we say, Oh, you know what? hamdulillah you know, I did this and I did that and, you know, self isolation and all this handler now I'm perfectly fine. Everything's good. It was it was all me. I did everything. We didn't do anything as all of us always had. And then Allah subhana wa tada says in verse number 11, except those who patiently endure and do good, right, those who are going to be patient, with the good that they're given that
was taken away from them or with the hardships that they are going through and then some goodness comes to them. They're going to be patient and endure it with goodness right and they will continue to do goodness throughout all of it. It is they who will have forgiveness and a mighty reward. And Allah subhana wa tada says this right to before now going into some of the stories of the prophets and messengers of Allah subhana wa Tada.
So he shows us the importance of being grateful
fortunes of being thankful to Allah subhana wa tada whether through good or through bad, whether we had good and bad came to us, or we had bad and good came to us, whatever it is, be grateful to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and show thankfulness to him and continue to do good deeds, don't let it get to you continue to do good deeds, then the loss of penalties and transitions now we're going to, you know, sort of breeze through this, okay, we're not even going to go through that is because there's so many things here to cover in this tool. So now I must have handled it and it starts to discuss sort of new, sorry, profit normality setup. That's what I was going to mention that there is a suit
known as new that we owe that we are going to cover later on in Charlottetown. And the 29th of June, of course.
But here from vs number 25, to 49, of pseudo houde, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Anna, you know, shows us know how to his pseudonym, and his discussions with his people. And this was because, you know, when you when you look at the story of how to his son, I'm like, why is it so important? There's a number of things, and it's not just the ark. It's not just building the ship. It's not just putting the animals and, you know, a pair of the creation of a lesson kind of with addenda on that ship. What's important for us to highlight here in the story of Nevada Hasidim, is the fact that, for the very first time in the history of human beings, humans started to worship other than Allah subhanho
wa Taala, had, they started to worship, you know, the statues were the items that were there of the pious people, you know, the the pious that were from their forefathers, right, who became who were really pious and righteous people. And what happened, we see, you know, in a nutshell, is that the people started to remember or wanted to remember them, and their piety, so that they can also worship like they used to worship. And so over some time, shaytaan, you know, whispered and affected them, and told them, you should, you should make statues out of out of these people, so that you can remember them, and the statues were outside and then shaped them continues to whisper to the people
and encourage them, you know, bring those statues inside the places of worship, so that when you do come in, you'll see them and then you go and you worship. And so you'll be reminded of the piety of those people when you are about to begin your, your worship.
And then over time, shavonne started to affect them and started to you know, in, encourage them to take those statues from the back of the place of worship and move it to the front.
Move it to the front, so that when you're standing in worship, you'll be able to see the statues of those pious righteous people who had already passed away, you'll see those statues and you will be encouraged in a bad way. And what happened over time was that people started to worship those idols right, they started to commit shift. And so the story of no hiding his setup is so important because it was the very first time that people started to that human beings on the face of this earth. They started to worship other than a loss of Hannibal, what to add, and so
nobody has sent him you know, he has his discussions with his people. And then he prepares for the for the punishment right to come from Allah subhana wa tada which was the flood and Allah subhana wa tada mentions that you know, water was gushing from the earth like it was coming out of the oven, you know, when you open the oven, and it's on like 400 504 150 degrees, and you know, it's nice and hot and you have this beautiful lasagna that's baking in there or you have a nice roast beef, or you have I don't know what chicken that's roasting in there, whatever it is that you have this beautifully roasting inside of, you know your oven, you open the oven door, what happens? This heat
just gushes out and it's like wow Subhana Allah. So Allah Subhana Allah mentions how the water gushes from the earth like like from the ovens of the earth, right? It's just gushing out just coming out like the heat comes out of the oven.
But no honey has sent him he prepares this arc right he prepares the ship
preparing for the punishment of a lot in front of the people. So it's like here I'm building the ship Why are you building the ship because the punishment is coming and this is what's going to save us right? So is anyone having any issues hearing me because someone Someone is mentioning that it's hard to hear but if you're having a difficult time hearing let me know I am not doing anything different than I usually do. So it should be fine inshallah maybe just turn up the volume a little bit or plug in external speakers or use headphones All right.
Let me just quickly check here Yeah, they say they can hear hamdulillah so I'll try and just speak a little bit louder inshallah
so know how to his sent him he's preparing for the punishment right in front of the people. Now you can imagine you you go outside, you're washing your car people passing by, they're like, oh, what's going on? You know, you
Just wash your car like two days ago, I'm getting ready for like someone's wedding gonna go to someone's wedding car has to look nice. Or you know, you cleaning up your home. And so kind of while you're making sure that it looks good, why? Because your parents preparing for guests to come over. Now here's no Holly has sent him. He's building this ship this arc in front of people. And they're passing by wondering, what are you doing? Why are you doing this? And they think this guy's crazy. He's not even a carpenter. Why is he building this massive ship? There's no water around here. Why is he doing that? And so he's preparing for the punishment of a loss of Hannah Montana that will
come to the people. And here's a clear sign, hey, you're asking him about it. Why are you doing it? Well, the punishment is coming. And I've warned you, and the punishment will come to you. And if you don't, you know, follow my way and embark upon this ship with us, then you will also be from once those that will suffer in the punishment. And the punishment is those floods, right? They came in the rain that fell so heavily that the earth gushed and flowed with water and lost a pen with data describes it like waves, the height of mountains, those who have gone to bend, if you've ever been to Calgary, jump in a rental car, 45 minutes you'll be up in Banff, you'll see the mountains you'll
think to yourself to Panama Look at this. Absolutely amazing. You know, the other day actually went on YouTube, maybe five, six days ago or something like that. And no time flies, maybe it was, it was probably you know, more than that maybe 10 days ago, and went online just to look at this video that a friend had sent to me of the mountains in Pakistan. It was about five six minutes long. It was so beautiful. So hello so high and everyone else talks about you know, you got to go to Pakistan kaitou right, the second highest peak in the world. Or you look at you know, Everest how high it is just mountain you know, mountains
piercing this guy. And I've seen I've seen the mountains from from above as well. I've flown over the Swiss Alps multiple times I've actually gone to Switzerland, and when you see the mountains there is just absolutely amazing. And here Allah Subhana Allah shows us in the story of Nevada, his sentiment that the mountains
and sorry that the waves are so high, like mountains. And so this arc is like, you know, the ship itself where's where's my missile, I miss work has come in very handy, this sort of a bomb, right? So the ship is like crashing and slowing is like
being like, sent all over the place. But it's withstanding all of that. And so no hana has sent him you know, he prepares for this, he gets a pair of every one of the creation as in whenever he's able to, from the creation of a lesser penalty to handle all of the animals a male and a female of the animals, put them all in there. And then you know, the
dog is mentioned, right that Bismillah imaginary her will notice in a beautiful photo of Rahim and this is why we say this drawing when we're traveling over water, or we're in a boat, or we're crossing a bridge, we say this a lot. You know, make this vessel that we're traveling in to go wherever you please write in your name, it is traveling with the help of Allah Subhana Allah with the command of Allah subhana wa Tada. And we can say this when we get into our car as well, if you're getting into a car and you're driving Bismillah imagine they have over Sangha in Nabila.
right because the car we're not in control of it, we are holding the steering wheel, but we're not fully in truly in control. And this is really interesting thing that mechanics know of that a lot of people don't know us right. Back in the day, we had a rack and pinion, which was the steering wheel attached from the middle of it to a rod that goes down through the firewall. firewall is basically the wall in front of you where the glass comes in front of the windshields, right? So you have your windshield and the wall in front. So that rod would go through it to another rod, the rack and pinion that connects to the wheels, right? And it turns the wheels left and right. So when you're
driving, if you're turning the wheels, the steering wheel, the wheels will turn. Nowadays, we don't even have that. Okay, so nowadays there's no, there's no rod that goes down from the steering wheel anymore. It's fly by wiring. Okay, so your steering wheel has sensors on it. It's not even connected to the wheels.
And so some pedal when you turn your steering wheel, there's a signal that is sent through, it's not direct, it's a signal, there's a disconnect, and it's sent to the wheels to let the wheels know where to turn. Well, one day, you might turn that steering wheel right, and it doesn't go anywhere.
We asked the boss to save and protect us all. But hopefully we are not driving or moving. But we're saying that that could happen where you turn your steering wheel one day, and the wheels don't turn because it's not a direct link anymore. And so I really think with a loss of hanway talent needs to be stronger. Okay, our link with a lot if the sensors fail and we turn right a lot can still make the cargo right in fact, we
can be turning right and the law makes it go left because that is the better route for us. And so the link that we have with a loss of handling data needs to be stronger than the fly by wiring, right needs to be even more powerful, even more, you know, connected and tight knit with a loss of hanway data so that anything that we go through in our lives, any hardship that we are that we are going to face in the future, or we're facing right now, Allah subhana wa tada will get us out of it. Why? Because of our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala Adam, you know, so many people can tell you stories of their lives and things that they thought, you know, they would never get through,
they would never be able to succeed with or, you know, they shouldn't even be here. Some people will tell you stories about how they shouldn't even be here, right? They've gone through things where it was life changing. And Allah subhana wa, tada kept them here. Who was it that did that? Allah subhana wa, what's ahead. So in the story of no holiday has sent him
he prepares for this punishment, he loads the ship. And as the ship is going through the waves in the water, he sees his son and he tells his son, you know what, believe and get on, right? Just come on board. Just come this is what's going to save you. There's nothing that will save you today. Right now, assuming you know, there's nothing that's going to save you today. What did he say? He says, we you know, Jebin I'm going to swim over to that mountain and I'll be safe, don't worry that I'm perfectly fine. Well, you're not going to be fine. Your dad is a prophet of Allah subhana wa tada who called and invited people for 950 years. And out of the 950 years that he invited, that
doesn't mean that he lived 950 years, he lived more than that. for 950 years, he was calling his people to worship only a loss of Hannibal a tad. And in 950 years of inviting people to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. Only approximately 80 people followed knew how to his center. Think of that as like less than 10 people a century,
less than 10 people a century is less than one as well, like one we can say on average one person per 10 years. One person per 10 years of you know, sacrificing, inviting people to a lesser kind of ad. Were we a prophet of Allah subhana wa that is calling his people and they're not listening. Who are we right? We call and we invite and we bring stories and advice. And, you know, we tell we tell people what they're supposed to do. And if they don't listen, they don't listen, what are we supposed to do? It's a muscle kind of with animal guides, at the end of the day, in the color demon, that when our kingdom law, a demon Yeshua, it is not us, who guides the people that we love. Rather,
it is a loss of Hanwha to Hannah, who guides whom He wills
we move on my brothers and sisters. Let's go to verses number 50 to 59 Allah subhana wa tada talks about the story of who would Allah has sent him right Prophethood this surah is titled So what? So Allah Subhana Allah is now talking about who Allah has sent him
to discuss the discussion between hood and his people that people have added and must have had with Allah mentions them as well in order to function. He describes the people have had, you know, modality learning and let them use luck, miserable half will be that they were such great people really strong, powerful people, people of nobility as well. And these people some kind of luck, they thought that they were going to live forever, and nothing would harm them. Right. And they used to build palaces on the tops of the mountains. And they felt you know what, when they retire, they'll go over there and they'll spend eternity over there living on the tops of the mountains, they never
got the chance to even reach those the tops of the mountains and to live in those homes that they lived in because they lived in homes that were carved inside of the mountains as well. And so Allah subhana wa tada shows us that, you know, these people they thought they were invincible undestructible are indestructible and Allah subhana wa tada destroyed them, we move on to actually before we go there.
They told who Allah has sent him, that he brings no evidence for his prophethood he brings no evidence, no evidence of him being a prophet, or of the message being divine, for the claims that he makes right? And they were destroyed for disobeying who Allah has sent him and rejecting his science, then the loss of haddaway data starts the story of Sonic and his setup and his people, the people of the mood, and how you know, they wanted to sign and they said, You know what, this rock, right turn this rock into a camel and a loss of man without it accepted it. But if they did not accept the sign, then they would be destroyed. And so loss of habitat accepted and he granted them
what they, you know, had had had wanted to see that that stone term
into a camel, a beautiful Shi camel, right? That was nice and red and, and pregnant right so which meant that you know it was going to give more
prosperity that was involved as well. And so Allah subhana wa tada shows us in the story there, you know, they wanted this and they wanted to sign on a loss Academy to have it provided the sign for them, and they still rejected it. And they went the distance to even go and kill they sacrificed. In fact, I should say they murdered you know that
that camel because it was drinking too much of the water and their animals couldn't drink from the water because the the agreement they had was one day that Canada would drink from the water that they had. And all the other days, so the opposite days, they would take turns and feeding their animals and feeding that camel, and it was drinking too much of the water. And so they were not too happy with that. And so they, you know, flooded to to kill the camel, then a loss of habitat and transitions versus number 69 to 76. The story of Ibrahim added his setup and how he receives the angels. These three guests right Albus pan with Addison's guests to Ibrahim Allah His center and
they're the angels of a loss of Hannah what Anna
and Ibrahim Allah has sent him when he receives these angels. He treats them like guests, because at that point in time, he doesn't think that they are angels. He doesn't know that they're angels. They're three travelers and so he welcomes them into his home. And he has a calf you know, sacrificed and he hasn't roasted for these guests. Even though he might have his setup as a generous person. He's he's treating his guests right. That's the way we're taught to to do things, right. Someone comes to our home, we open up, open the house out in the debate, right, open up the treasures of the home and you give people you have cookies, you are saving for yourself, give it to
the people you have chips, you are saving to yourself, give it to the people, you have dates and food and meat and rice and stuff like that. Give it to the people, right, be generous. And the more generous We are the more generous Allah Subhana Allah will be with us. And so when I came out of his Senate, he has this calf sacrificed and presented to the guests.
And the guests refuse to eat. And so he knows right away, either these guests are there to harm him. Or they're there for another purpose. There are angels sent from Allah subhana wa Tana, and they're not there to eat. They're there to deliver a message. And so he receives the message, right, they don't eat, and he becomes concerned. And they let him know, they reassure him, don't worry, you're safe, everything is fine. And they informed him they didn't come here for him. They came to inform him that they were on their way to meet loot Allah has sent him and to destroy the people have looked at it his turn.
And at that point in time
when when the wife of Ibrahim alayhis salaam heard that she began to to chuckle right and it says, you know, in the Quran, the word is used like she smiled or she left. And the reason why she did that is because she knew that Luca alayhis salaam was warning his people and had warned them like any Prophet would do. You know, warning. If you don't obey Allah subhana wa tada and follow his command, then a punishment would would come to you. So she was like, see, and they thought they can get away with it. Right? So she sort of chuckled right? Not laughing at them. But you know, just expressing herself like, they were warned, right? They were warned. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala
that shows us how they informed them of having a child that Ibrahim Allah has sent him would finally become a father and you know, with his wife, they would have his half at his center.
But it was only his son was concerned. And he told them he reminded the angels He's like, Wait a second, you know, amongst the people of loot his loot himself like he's there. So just be careful you're going to destroy the people but don't destroy loot. Right so Ibrahim Allah has sent him he felt the need to inform them that from amongst the people of lutes Nation, his loot alayhis salam himself and they reassured him Don't worry, you know he will be safe.
one Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala continues on and I can't go through every single story because we'll see some of this later on as well. But Allah subhana wa tada then talks about prophet loot Allah, his senem and how they went over
You know and and that story which we'll get into inshallah another day and then Allah subhana wa tada talks about sure I need I need his senem and then Moosa and fit our own
Moosa and how to one right and then the story of, well very briefly verses 96 to 99 Moosa and Fidel and in that interaction and what happened there, then Allah subhana wa Tana tells the story of those people right and how they were destroyed and so on and so forth. So there's a lot that's mentioned and so on, but we got to get into sort of use of because today's session is the 12 jurors, and half of it is sort of food and the other half is the beginning of surah Yusuf and so we now begin another story but in another chapter, right so use
in pseudo use of philosophy handling with Adam begins in the first three verses by mentioning how
actually really want to
just recite this inshallah it's gonna and you're laughing at
me can I be Moody, in
colombini lemina cv was handled with Anna shows us here at the beginning of surah Yusuf, he says Elif Nemeroff. These are the verses of the clear book. Indeed, we have sent it down as an Arabic answer that you may understand. Now people ask this question, how do we understand it if we don't understand Arabic? Well, it shows us the importance of needing to understand and to learn some of the Arabic Okay, that's the first thing. Secondly, Arabic is a rich language, which sometimes a word will be difficult to explain with another word. And so you'll need to sort of explain the meaning of a word in Arabic by using many other words. So sometimes you'll find like a paragraph is needed to
explain one of the Arabic words Okay, so Allah Subhana, WA, tada sent it down in the Arabic language in Arabic, you could say one word, and the meaning is understood. And I remember some how long when you were studying Arabic? I was like, Oh, yeah, that makes sense. How do you explain it in English? I don't know. Right? So there's just like, beauty behind this, this language, some kind of law. And so for those that are able to learn some Arabic, I would encourage you, you know, make that a task, that you are one of the goals that you have in life in life in life,
to learn the Arabic language, right, that Allah Subhana, Allah says, I'm gonna put sonic x and cos
we relate to you, oh, prophets, the best of stories through our revelation of the end, though, before this, you were totally unaware of them. This is powerful, because first of all, loss of hundreds dimensions, the best of stories. And so whatever movie is out there, whatever, Harry Potter, this, and that whatever you're going to read, might seem interesting to you. But it's not the best story. The best stories are those that are found within the poor end. And so we need to continue to learn and to recite the poor and, and to learn the stories of God. And because there's such powerful stories for us, and there's a lot of meaning behind it, not just meaning of, you know,
things that we just learn and enjoy and be like, Oh, yeah, that was great entertainment, no importance for us to live our lives in a way that is going to be beneficial for us in the people that are around us, in this life and in the Hereafter. So he says, you know, this is the best of stories, through our revelation of this for those, though, before this, you were totally unaware. So the other thing that must have happened with Hana mentions is there are stories and things that are mentioned in the Quran that human beings did not know of, prior to them being revealed.
And so, through this end, we learn history, we learn things about the past. And you'll notice that in religions, religions actually take from one another right, they will look at the the the book, and they will try to understand stories of the past through that. So for example, in Islam, we look at the poor and we look at the some of the prophets or whatever it was, and then we look at the alpha, which is like statements of the Sahaba of the llama and woman things that they may have mentioned. And then we can also look at the Israelite ETFs, which are the books of the Jewish and the Christian, you know, the books of the religions of the past that may have indications to you
know, give a better context of what took place. We don't hold them in
As evidence, but we just tried to understand certain things by you know, maybe granting a better, you know, or shedding some light on the context of what was taking place in the past, okay.
And then also pan with and it begins, you know, talking about dreams and dreams and dream interpretation was so common. It was, you know the thing that was being done during the time of Prophet Yusuf adding his setup, and so to have a dream and to have that dream interpreted, you know, it was it was very common and dream interpretation is permissible within Islam. Okay. Then Allah Subhana, Allah says, is calling us to be here.
Please, God, hello also kind of went down and says, Remember when you said to his father, who was his father Yaqoob. Allah has sent us have said to his father, oh, my dear father, indeed I dreamt of 11 stars, the sun and the moon I saw them prostrating to be and so because of this now, use of Allah His setup, he tells this dream to his father, his father doesn't tell him the exact interpretation of the dream, because he feels if he does,
and his brothers find out, they're not going to be too happy because his brothers are jealous of him. Use of it. His son is the son to Yahoo, but Allah has sent them through a mother, and Binyamin they share the same mother use of in Binyamin this year, the same mother, the other brothers, they have another mother. And so they are jealous of use of added incentive, they feel that he is preferred by their father, and they don't like this. And so Yaqoob it has said them in order to protect his son, he doesn't tell him the interpretation of the dream. He tells him, don't worry, this is a sign of goodness, right? This is something good for you.
He says, Oh, my dear son, do not relate your vision to your brothers, or they will devise a plot against you. Surely Satan is a sworn enemy to humankind. So he lets him know you know what, don't say it. Obviously, there's something good about it, and your brother's not going to be happy about it. So you know what, just keep it to yourself.
Then from verses number 12 to 18, Allah subhana wa tada shows us, you know, the the brothers, they request from their father for us to come with them, so that they can take him out and enjoy some time with him and allow him to play and they're going to go in the wilderness and play and be free and stuff like that. But use of Allah has sent him, you know, he's young and his father, he hesitates a little bit. And it shows us here family, and how important it is to stick together as family and to not hold grudges against one another because that can divide the family so much. And use of it his son, um, you know, he was a young boy, and
their, his his sons, they requested for us to have to go with them. And so he allowed it, he granted it, but he told them, You know what, you got to bring him back and make sure that, you know, nothing happens to him. He's not harmed out there. So one of them said,
you know, when when they decided to take use of Let's kill him. And then one of the older ones, he said, No, let's not kill him. Let's put them in the bottom of a well, and leave him there. And then maybe some passer buys right people that are passing by, they'll see use of any headset and they'll see him and they'll take him and he'll be safe, so at least we won't kill him, but he will be safe. And so they took him and they did that and they put them at the bottom of the well, and they took the shirts of use of Allah, his pseudonym, they killed a wolf. They killed an animal. They took the blood and they put it all over the shirts and they brought the bloody shirt back to their father.
Yaqoob Allah has set up and they told their father that like, Look, this is what happened. We were out we were playing and a wolf came and attacked us and killed him. He's dead.
Now you can't fool a prophet like that. Yeah, cool. Daddy has said that he's a prophet of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and he interpreted the dream of use of adding his hand up so he knows there's going to be some goodness, he knows that this isn't true. He's not buying their story at all, because he knows that there is goodness in the future of use of Annie has set up. Right. jacobellis Adam had the ability to interpret dreams and so he interpreted the dream without letting us have it his son and know what it meant right? He doesn't know exactly what it means as well but he knows that there's going to be some goodness for him in the future that will come through you know, the
mother of the father and the brothers.
Then the loss of pen with Alice's and I know it's getting dark in my room.
Turn on the lights.
shine it up a little bit, get some light over here, shine it over there, make it look nice, make my wife feel good, she put that up on the wall. She's like, you got to decorate your background a little bit. It's kind of boring.
So then we see what we see there. From verses number 19 to 34. I love some headwinds and issues as they use of Allah has sent him he's picked up by a caravan this caravan is traveling through, they're on their way to Egypt, they stop they see the well they put down a bucket in the well, what do they find, they find that there's someone inside, they pull them up, they get used to finding his send them out. Now at the time, the laws of the land, you know, stipulated that if someone was found or property was found, and there was no link to who it belongs to, or no link to, you know where this person is to go, who you know whose family they're from,
then, you know, that person belongs to whoever found them. So if it was a child, and you found the child and there was no message, there was no sign of this person belonging to another family or anything of that sort, then you owned that child, as in you now become the master of the child and the child is like your slave or the person becomes your slave. That was the laws of the land at the time. So Allah subhana wa tada shows us that use of added incentive was found. And he didn't argue with it. He didn't argue with it, he was patient. And from here, all the way to the end of the surah, we see the patience of use of adding his son and being tested by how patient he actually is
like he doesn't give into it. And so he doesn't argue he doesn't complain, he knows that if he's found, he'll be taken care of he'll be looked after. And, you know, he technically is the property of whoever finds him. And so he goes along with it.
He's brought to Egypt, he sold in the slave market in Egypt. And then, you know, the Isaiah is one of the ministers. He is basically the master of use of Allah His setup. And so Yusuf Ali Hassan lives in his home, and when he's living in his home, the wife of the minister, she
she's attracted to us a valid use of Allah His son was really good looking. Right? He was extremely good looking Allah subhana wa tada had made him you know, so good looking at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, half of this world's beauty is found the use of it. Right? So it's just amazing, right? How you know how handsome he must have been, and how difficult it must have been for, you know, a woman to see this other men living inside of her home. And he's always there, he's cleaning, he's doing things. And he's such, you know, an amazing person. So she tried to seduce use of his setup.
And a loss of Hannah woods. And it shows us there that had it not been for a loss of Hannah, who was Allah, Yusuf Ali Hassan himself may have been inclined to doing something with her. So when the incident happens, use of added incentive is locked in the room. And there was a penalty to add as well look until above, like the doors were completely locked and sealed. There was no way for anyone to get in or anyone was going out. And she tries to seduce him use of adding his son and he says my other law, right, he seeks refuge and helping Allah subhana wa Tada, because he knows he alone, he can't, you know, he's not in the room with just an average woman as well. He's in the room with a
woman of high status of high nobility of extreme wealth. She's well kept, she's looked after, you know, she's probably very well done up. So it's not easy for you to sign up as well. And there's nothing wrong with mentioning these things. Sometimes people get upset. They're like, Why are you saying this? Like what? That's a prophet of Allah. Allah is the one who's telling us this in the surah, right, that she is someone of high status of nobility, and use of it, his pseudonym is really good looking. And he says that he he would have been inclined to her as well, if it were not for a loss of handled with data protecting him.
So there's nothing wrong in mentioning this, my brothers and sisters, because it's a lesson from a loss of hand with Anna, who's teaching us that we need to try and control ourselves, we are going to be you know, we are going to be attracted to others. But we have to we have to have that limit. We need to learn to control ourselves and protect ourselves from the sake of a loss of handle what's ahead, then a loss of hand with Anna shows us in the next few verses. And I'll try to wrap up with these inshallah from first number 35 to 57 use of added incentive is put into prison and he is now extremely patient as well. Why is he put into prison? Well, the very first time he got caught, Well,
not really him, right, in the sense that the door opened and the minister was like what's going on in here? And you know, one of the two of you locked in the room use of Allah has sent him you know, he was wearing a shirt and it became apparent to the Minister that if the shirt is ripped from the back, then you
If is innocent and your wife was the one who was going after
her, sorry going after him. And if his shirt is ripped from the front, then he was trying to come at your wife and she was protecting herself and she ripped his shirt. So they noticed that the back of the shirt of use of adding Sam was ripped. And because he felt the minister was like, you know, it's my wife, I'm ashamed that my wife would do this and my wife is going to be known as guilty. Let's just pretend like this never happened. Okay? And so they let it go
over some time use of it his Sanam is invited back in. Actually sorry, not usif is invited into people are invited by the wife of the minister to come over and to spend some time there and have dinner with her. Why? Because she wants to prove to them that use of it, his system is so awesomely handsome, he's so beautiful, right? And that you yourselves as the women in society you would not be able to resist use of and he has set up. And so she invites everyone in and we'll continue from that tomorrow, inshallah. We'll open it up for some questions. We'll continue tomorrow, inshallah I see quite a few questions there. And I want to take them and
just move out of the way a little bit. So like I said, we'll try to get to some of your questions. I know people drinking them alone. Want to ask, is your time to ask so feel free to do so. We're continuing with the sudo tomorrow anyways, so no need to worry about that. inshallah. Let me just do this. Much better.
All right. Okay, I'm
just gonna toss this aside.
And I see some questions here. If we put medicine in our mouth and gargle does it break our fast medicine and Garbo? So gargling medicine, I'm assuming that it's medicine to help with a throat infection. If the medicine goes down your throat, then it breaks the fast, okay? If it goes down your throat, then it does break your fast if you just put it in your mouth and swish it around your mouth and no, it doesn't because it's not going down into your body. Just make sure that you rinse your mouth out really well afterwards. And there's no no medicine left in your mouth. Okay, and make sure there's no residue of medicine left in your mouth. And you know, you don't want to run the risk
of swallowing it.
Sorry, sorry. Sorry. Okay.
How's your dad? He's good. He's home right now. Um, the latches are coming along fader.
Is it permissible to use
cosmetics that contain alcohol?
So for example, as you're going to be using
perfumes or colognes and stuff like that, I follow the opinion of the scholars that it is permissible and it is not considered nudges. It is not impure, therefore it would be permissible. Yes. to us. That is the opinion of the scholars that I follow.
Almost apparently Tana knows best. Can you drink water when you're fasting? If you have hiccups? No, because then you'll break your fast Okay, you just need to put up with the hiccups hold your breath stick your tongue out really far. Just stick your tongue out. You never heard of that way you stick your tongue out really far in your hiccups go away.
Prophet Ibrahim and prophet Luke existed at the same time. Yes. Prophet Ibrahim is the uncle of Prophet lute Allah His center Okay, lute, Allah Hassan is the nephew of Prophet Ibrahim.
I have seen some people praying also at different times. And I wonder why please, if you can clarify that. I appreciate it. Okay, so there's the first shadow and the second shadow. I'm assuming that that is what you're referring to.
So very, very quickly, because it's going to take some time in sha Allah. So this miswak it has a shadow. Okay, can I get the shadow good. So the shadow of the miswak if you know it's not gonna work. Alright, let's do this. All right, there we go. So your
forget the real shadow.
When the shadow of an object becomes equal to it, that is the indication of the beginning time of ourselves, okay. However, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned that he decided to delay the Sunnah. That was, you know, advice when it's extremely hot. So
the start time for us it is when the shadow becomes one end. On the second day when the angel Gabriel came and prayed with the prophets and along I did have something to show them the beginning time of the prayers and the end time of the prayers. He prayed with him when the shadow had been to to shadow likes, right. So there is difference of opinion on that. You can pray either after the first shadow or after the second shadow. What do we mean by shadow, we mean when the shadow of an object becomes equal to it inside.
That's first shadow. And when the shadow of the object is double the length of the object, then it is the second shadow. That's basically what it means. Okay?
So I'm going to come up with a little hidden for these sessions of it about female halloweentown and make them beneficial to everyone. Okay, I am a Muslim Alhamdulillah
I heard that only believers will enter gender but if a person is never comes across a stem and he died as an unbeliever, will he enter Paradise as he never got a chance to interact with any Muslims I've many non Muslim friends I feel that they should know about Islam and be a Muslim, I try to convince them with my limited knowledge and sometimes I feel they might not convert. So I am making a way for them to join them as I am giving them the message and they are neglecting it. So first of all, it must have outlook.
Yes, it is upon you to deliver the message and you can't say you know what, I'm just not going to tell them about Islam because I don't want them to go to Jana. You don't know if they're going to go to Paradise or agenda you don't know if you are going to go to Paradise or agenda. Neither do I know if I'm going to go there or not. But we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make you and myself and all of us those who go to Gen. Okay. We also ask Allah subhana wa Tanis to guide all of your friends and to make them from the from the believers and make them from the people who will go to Paradise as well. However, you have an obligation to teach us them to others to show Islam to others to convey the
message of Islam and the example of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through that example okay.
And it is only a loss of hand with animal guides the hearts so Allah may have guided us now, but he can misguide those who he wills if we choose to turn away from Allah subhana wa Tada, he can turn us away. Okay, so that's why it's important for us to stay away from the sins that we commit in our lives. That's for the people that you know, you're concerned about your friends. Yes, those who are unaware of Islam, Allah subhana wa tada will deal with them how he was okay. They will not be held accountable because they did not know about Islam. That does not mean that if they didn't know about the rulings within Islam, but they knew of Islam, that they are exempt, okay? If they knew about
Islam, they have to go and research it, they have to learn about Islam, if they're not going to go and learn about Islam, then that's on their shoulders. Every single one of us on the Day of Judgment, you know, you'll see an FC FC people are running around and people say nasty, nasty myself, I'm worried about myself now. I've tried to help you in the dunya too bad now I'm going to be worried about myself. And so my brothers and sisters, we need to be concerned about ourselves.
And make sure that we are going to keep ourselves upon Islam but we also need to make sure that we are going to spread Islam to others and try our best to convey the message of Islam to those who are around us and we leave it up to Allah subhana wa tada We ask Allah subhana wa tada to guide our friends. I mean, so I'm going to come Can you read from the Quran influence Allah? No, you cannot. Okay, so you cannot read from the Quran in the photo. But we're compulsory prayer you need to read from your memory from what you have memorized, except in the case where someone is a new Muslim, or someone does not know because there's no one who knows the world around them, except that they are
going to read from the last panel, it knows best. Do you recommend any textbooks on interpreting the
so for example, look, there are some translations
of the books have to see for example,
to see if you've been cathedra is translated in English. So if you can get your hands on that, then that would be a good resource as well.
Okay, that is pretty much it, because we've run out of time. Can we use mouthwash, especially crest one, which doesn't have alcohol. Okay, so I can't comment on a specific brand, because brands vary from country to country. And they vary in terms of ingredients as well, because certain brands that we may use here in North America are allowed in other countries. Like I know when we were living in Malaysia, there's certain things that we can use over there that we can't use over here. However, mouthwash can we use it, I would try to avoid using mouthwash while fasting. But we can't say that it would not be permissible so long as the person doesn't swallow it, then it doesn't make it
impermissible. However, if you're going to brush your teeth, try to start with a miswak if you're not able to use miswak, use your toothbrush if you need to put a little bit of toothpaste on there tried to be very, very, very minimal with the amount of toothpaste that you put on your toothbrush. Okay.
And I just finished answering that. So that's all there. We're gonna take for there and from there for tonight, inshallah. can please. Okay, I'm gonna have to ask you to ask these questions. torrentshell that our time is up to second level head. It's time for f5 both of them are some of our seminal American antamina Mohammed Ali, you can either send him send him or any commodity to buy him okay.
