Salatu was Salam O Allah he was he was heavy woman without what he didn't abide by the law that is it is in Islam. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa Taala. Berkut.

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

Allows Muhammad Allah talks, speaks to us in Surah Yusuf and Allah says, If Allah used to flee I be Yeah, but he in a to a hadash Rocco Gabon was shumsa Well, Amara, right to whom Lisa de de circolo Ali.

00:00:53--> 00:01:33

We continue our lectures on the Quran. In the lectures on the Quran, as we have said, is a summary of each surah. So it doesn't deal with a surah in detail. It deals with the objective of the surah. And it gives us background as to the divine objective in revealing the surah not only the revelation of the surah, but the time it was revealed. And we said last week, that these three sutras of these three ambia, Yunus and hood and use of 1011 and 12, these three Sutras, was revealed to the Navy sell a lot as a lump

00:01:34--> 00:01:44

in the last 10 years of his stay, in fact, the last two years to three years of his stay in Makkah, all three of them revealed one after each other.

00:01:46--> 00:01:57

It is the first time in the Quran that three sutras revealed one after each other are put in fact, one after each other. The first sutra that we dealt with was surah Yunus.

00:01:58--> 00:02:14

We are lost 100 duck for the punishment of the people of add, and also have no bizarrely two people have sammut we read in Surah Hood, also our last 100 forgives forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala and this surah

00:02:16--> 00:02:37

which is the longest surah in the Quran, and the only surah in the Quran that deals entirely with the ECF one Debbie, Debbie Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, it consists of triple one two verses 111 verses and this surah

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

deals

00:02:40--> 00:02:41

with a story

00:02:43--> 00:02:48

which is described by Allah subhanaw taala as XML parsers

00:02:49--> 00:02:59

as the most beautiful story that allows berhanu tala that revealed all that it was deal with,

00:03:00--> 00:03:02

with what the Navy Sallam said.

00:03:04--> 00:03:08

Of course as you didn't allow Sandra says it is the most beautiful story.

00:03:09--> 00:03:30

As I said that we use this to go back deals with the punishment of Allah, Natalie who deals with the forgiveness of Allah and abusive deals with the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He deals with a Rama of allowes Connaughton. And then every saw Salah met said

00:03:31--> 00:04:00

that he was asked who is the noblest person who ever lived, who is the most noble person is an emphasis on their pride truly, the noblest of men, is the Prophet Yusuf for Joseph was the Son, the grandson, and the great grandson of a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you can see an abusive lineage, his lineage was, he was the son of nebia Kubo Jacob,

00:04:02--> 00:04:22

who was the son of knobbies Hawk was the son of NaVi Rahim Allah him of salatu wa salam. So you can see that abuse of lineage Mashallah goes right back to Abu Ambien Ebrahim. Allah have salatu salam, and those of you who have been to Palestine, who have been to Hillel

00:04:25--> 00:04:48

the city's Arab name is Holly or friend Holly Lola named after Habib Rahim. Allah says Allah, because we know today as as Hebron and they everybody who goes to Jerusalem visits the masjid at Hebron or Madrid. Why? Because it is one of the most historical masajid

00:04:49--> 00:04:58

in the world. Why? Because it has the graves of NaVi Brahim Abul ambia it has the grave of knobbies ha

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

it has

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

The grave of nebia qub and it has the grave of an abuse of allyssa. So four generations of ambia are buried in that one Masjid. And it also is known as Majid Al kellele,

00:05:14--> 00:05:21

which is also named after Natalie Brahim. alayhi salatu was Salam. And some of the whys of NaVi APU is very they

00:05:22--> 00:05:25

the wife of NaVi Raheem is buried there.

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

Sarah

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

was the other way.

00:05:31--> 00:06:19

hajus she's buried way in Makkah. So the first wife, Sara is buried also in the same as he did at Hebron. And never use who his wife is very they're not the mother of abuse if she's not buried there. The mother of the abusive animus rahila her grave is some distance away from the barrier place of nebbia Coburn is so happy for him then Father of all the profits son His heart is how can the other son's name was his smile, who from which line the Nabi Salaam takes that business and takes his lineage Nabil is my Allah and His heart. His son was Jaco. Jaco is also known as Israel.

00:06:21--> 00:06:35

So our friends, the Jews, the love, that'd be our COO, Elisa to Salam dobbiaco. And then after yaku comes Yusuf and of course there were so many brothers The other one was Binyamin. Allah him of Salatu was Salam.

00:06:37--> 00:06:41

Yeah, Allah. Allah Subhan. Allah says, Allah.

00:06:42--> 00:07:02

So Allah Gosnell passes the Mahayana ilica for analysis of Mohammed Salah. We narrate to you the most beautiful of stories, I don't like the word story, but maybe I should use the word narrative. Because a story is something that people tell and maybe today may not be true. So cosas

00:07:03--> 00:07:29

por que saw, as you know it in C in the singular form, actually means a narrative of history when it is mentioned in the Holy Quran, Lima Ohio nyla Allah says, of all the stories of Muhammad wa sallam that I've narrated to you, the most beautiful one is the one of Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, and we need to know why is it that these three subrace was revealed to the Nepalese asylum at the worst time in his life

00:07:31--> 00:07:37

that Allah swallowed revealed such a beautiful story to the Nabeel Islam at the worst when the oppression

00:07:39--> 00:07:44

against an ideology Salaam and this harbor were at its height. As I mentioned last week,

00:07:45--> 00:08:06

we will learn inshallah, later on, why allows hunternet revealed surah Yousuf as part of the trilogy of sewer or surah set was revealed to them, so some use remember 1011 and 12 euros would a new stuff, you should the these things should be read together.

00:08:09--> 00:08:21

And the purpose of the surah The purpose of the surah is found in the 19th verse of the surah means in the last 12 verses allows father reveals

00:08:23--> 00:08:27

what was the purpose of surah Yusuf Allah says in Turkey,

00:08:28--> 00:08:43

for in Allahu Allah you do. masini Allah says, verily those who have Taqwa those who are conscious of Alzheimer's and of course the eastern abusive is a state of the consciousness of our last panel Tom Lau

00:08:44--> 00:09:15

has been and has patience. For in the law you do algebra and masina last panelist is the person who has patience. And the person who is conscious of allows Honda law allows for Huntelaar easily word that Allah will never be lost. Sometimes people forget, in fact, not sometimes. Most of the time, our friends and family children and wives forget very quickly what we do for them of good

00:09:17--> 00:09:54

if you say to your child remember I gave you that he says Really? Oh but you my daddy, you should have given it to me You are bound to give it to me You're duty bound to give it to me. I didn't ask you in the first place not to give it to me. Your wife. That's another story she never remembers for at least she looks on the rings on a fingers around the neck, all the stuff that's on then that is a physical reminder But otherwise, everything else is forgotten. And of course, that is part of the goodness which we have towards him. So allow Sandra tells us that Allah doesn't lose every single bead when I am

00:09:55--> 00:09:57

with Carla Ratan

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

Sarah Yara mama

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Yama mikkola

00:10:06--> 00:10:28

Shara Yara Allah Subhan Allah says, every act of of good not even a deed every atom of good meaning even a good thought that's why one should always think good things, even a good thought is rewarded by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the story of Napa use of or the narrative as you will call it, of the abuse of Alison's Salaam starts with a dream.

00:10:29--> 00:10:35

The words which are quoted verse four, Allah says, it calls us to fully Abbey

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

when Allah when use of said

00:10:42--> 00:10:55

to his father, and when you read through the use of you will note that Allah doesn't refer to an abusive as Nabil Yusuf is referred to in the role of surah Yusuf as use of

00:10:58--> 00:10:59

take note of that

00:11:01--> 00:11:21

allows one that says his call or use of when use of say to his father already say to his father, yeah, Betty Oh, my father, Indira A to A had Asha Rocco cabin. Saw 11 stars was shumsa well Kamara and the sun and the moon. I saw them.

00:11:22--> 00:11:29

What do they do? I saw them Lisa g Dean. I saw them making sudo to me.

00:11:30--> 00:11:37

Now we will first see rune and the NaVi RS Islam tells us that the word Sajid

00:11:40--> 00:11:51

which is derived from the word sajida has to do to prostrate year doesn't mean to make sure Jude as we make sujood in Salah

00:11:52--> 00:12:04

year when Allah says 11 stars and the sun in the moon of course, which refers to his 11 brothers, and the sun in the moon refers to his mother and father, they will become obedient to Him.

00:12:07--> 00:12:24

In the end, they will become obedient to Him. They were meant to do to him. You know what Sajid means the one who is obedient. We know that the person who makes surgery that we're allowed to make surgery that because of his obedience, to allow something

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

Alphonse explains at the end.

00:12:28--> 00:12:36

And luckily, I don't have to relate to the whole surah because most of you know the story of abuse of Aliso to Salaam. So this starts with a dream.

00:12:39--> 00:12:43

And of course, you and I know that we have no control over dreams.

00:12:44--> 00:12:58

Well control. It's something which happens sometimes during the night, some people dream in Juma, but that's something different. But it happens to you during the night. And it comes from a loss function. And that is the beginning and the end of the story.

00:13:00--> 00:13:02

In this story,

00:13:03--> 00:13:06

or narrative, on abuse of artists,

00:13:07--> 00:13:16

we find that what appears to be bad is not bad. And what appears to be good is not so good.

00:13:17--> 00:13:25

Your appearance when we read the surah will explain what it means for example, let me give you an example. Now the use of

00:13:26--> 00:13:32

as you know, as a small boy, the Quran says he was about six or seven years old.

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

And he was

00:13:37--> 00:13:57

he wanted to come play with his other brothers. His elder brothers are the 11 brothers. Remember, the 10 brothers were from other wives? abuse of an a beanie. I mean, they were from Rock Hill, which is another wife, his last wife. And he wanted to come play with his brothers. And his father refused.

00:13:58--> 00:14:24

Because his father, you know, fathers, our their baby, but said, No, no, no, you guys are big. You don't wanna look after him. You're gonna let him run around. Maybe people will steal him or Fox will get him we'll get lost, we'll get hurt. So he said, No, no, no, don't worry. No worries, we will look after him. In Allahu Allah Hafiz, don't worry. We will look after him. Of course, the only intention was to harm him.

00:14:25--> 00:14:36

Why did they want to harm him? They wanted to harm him. for one simple reason a child of six years old. They want to call me for one reason and one reason

00:14:38--> 00:14:42

they wanted to harm him because his father loved him. That's

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

just because the for the love of a father. The love I mean that's a good thing. Your father loves the good thing in this case for an abusive he turned out that the love of the Father lighter demeanor. Well so they took

00:15:01--> 00:15:26

When they came back far outweighs used to, oh, they cry when they cried and they weren't happy and they said, Oh, we were playing Daddy, father and wolves came or the fox came and took him away and ate him up. And what they've done is they taken the shirt off, because they threw me into a well, but before that they took his shirt off, and they took some blood of an animal and they soaked the shirt in the blood.

00:15:27--> 00:15:45

False blood is the Quran color coded that mean Kevin false blood and they took the shirt and the shirt was there to exonerate them to make them innocent This is see he has a shirt see it's full of blood see the fox took him away

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

because of the use of currency, so while he accepted the explanation

00:15:57--> 00:15:58

so your was the shirt?

00:16:01--> 00:16:04

Yeah used to prove the innocence

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

of his brothers.

00:16:09--> 00:16:17

Again, the shirt was used in the shirts play a very important the role in the surah. The second time we have other [???] is when

00:16:18--> 00:16:26

he was rescued from the well by some traders, by some travelers who took him out. And so the

00:16:28--> 00:16:29

Saudi

00:16:32--> 00:16:42

any landed up in the house of a Minister of State of Egyptian government. In fact, the Aziz he was the man who looked after the press he was he was

00:16:43--> 00:16:46

the Minister of Finance of Egypt at the time.

00:16:47--> 00:16:54

And the wife of this minister wanted to seduce the abusive Alisha to salon

00:16:57--> 00:17:24

maybe we should give him Maybe we should not but I mean being the most. Allah prophets of Salaam said the most handsome man which Allah created ever was an abuse of Allah subhanaw taala. So don't understand maybe in a weakness, she tried to seduce him. She waited for him to be alone in the room. And she closed the door. And he refused. And he ran away from her. But he was too slow. And she told him by his shirt, and told his shirt

00:17:26--> 00:17:26

from the back.

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

And when he came out

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

of the room, there was the husband.

00:17:36--> 00:17:51

Of course, she started crying, and weeping and pulling her hair and saying that this man that you've got in the house, the slaves that you bought, he tried to seduce me, etc, etc, etc. Some of us have said

00:17:52--> 00:17:56

very simple. If my shirt is told from the front and I'm guilty,

00:17:57--> 00:18:10

but if my shirt is thrown from the back, then she's guilty. So yeah, the shed was used to prove the innocence of Labib Rahim. Allah He a Salatu was Salam.

00:18:11--> 00:18:16

If not the use of Elisa. Mashallah, no dream stealing Juma hamdulillah.

00:18:17--> 00:18:37

So, if you read the surah, which of course, these lectures should encourage you to go back and to read the surah. If you read this, the splendor of the surah when I read the surah, again, the splendor of the surah in fact, is that when you read the surah, you don't need an RM to explain to really what the surah is about.

00:18:38--> 00:18:45

The surah comes alive when you read it, things are so clear, so plain, it was in the wild was taken of the wild he was so

00:18:47--> 00:18:58

and so forth and so on. And then he went to prison and so so it is a sutra that becomes alive for the reader. It is a story that becomes alive for the reader.

00:18:59--> 00:19:15

But really, the sutra was not just revealed to tell us a story. I mean, the Quran is not a storybook, it may have the name of use of and the ladies of by the intention of the surah of our last mount Allah was not just to relate the story of use of

00:19:17--> 00:19:20

the objective of the surah as I said earlier,

00:19:21--> 00:19:25

is captured in the last line.

00:19:26--> 00:19:37

Last lines meaning the line number 90 as it is on the board in turquoise is beautiful in a law that will do algebra and machining Allah says

00:19:38--> 00:19:43

the central theme of the surah is

00:19:45--> 00:19:46

taco and supper.

00:19:48--> 00:20:00

The listening should take from it that there is reward, just to be patient and his reward, just to be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the

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

objective of the surah is to inform us that the divine plan, the plan of allows Pantera is way above the plans of limited human insight. So we may look at story which is just a story.

00:20:18--> 00:20:26

It says to us, trust in Allah, be patient, and do not give up hope. These are the three lessons of

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

trust in Allah, my

00:20:30--> 00:20:37

Allah, Allah, Allah for who has he put his trust in Allah, Allah is enough for him. Be patient. In

00:20:39--> 00:20:41

other words, Don't be hasty.

00:20:43--> 00:20:45

Don't think things should happen over the weekend,

00:20:46--> 00:20:56

or next week, or next month. And finally, lay a solid so do not give up hope for the mercy

00:20:58--> 00:21:00

of Allah, Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:21:01--> 00:21:03

Again, if we look

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

at the surah in the story, we will find that

00:21:07--> 00:21:15

the strangeness of the story is that it unfolds contrary to what we may think it is, for example,

00:21:16--> 00:21:22

he landed in the wall, why, and as I already told you, because of his love of his father.

00:21:24--> 00:21:27

Therefore, it is sometimes unwise.

00:21:28--> 00:21:32

For fathers to openly show the love for one particular child,

00:21:34--> 00:21:51

you will find that that child will become the focus negative focus of his other brothers and sisters. Because they will always ask themselves, why him or her? Why not me? And that will carry on after your death.

00:21:53--> 00:22:05

And it may cause divisions amongst the brothers and the sisters. So if you have a favorite child, just keep it to yourself. Don't divulge it to anybody. No, especially not to your wife because she will tell the children

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

because obviously, if you tell it your wife, she will also feel a bit of jealousy because she will want to be their favorite one, isn't it? She'll say, why'd you make What about me? Now I'm supposed to be your favorite. So should we learn from abusive number jacobellis? So we shouldn't have shown so much love to abuse of La salatu wa Salaam.

00:22:28--> 00:22:33

And this love landed him as I said in the world. Secondly,

00:22:35--> 00:22:45

he was thrown into this world of boy of six years old, thrown into a very deep well. I mean, to us, it's a bad thing, isn't it? I mean, the first thing we think it is challenging to get out of the world.

00:22:46--> 00:22:49

But the results of that was that he landed and became

00:22:51--> 00:23:35

a member of the household of one of the highest ranking persons in the in the Egyptian government. In fact, as I said, the Minister of Finance, so the well, from the love of the Father to the wall, and from the wall, to the house of one of the highest people in Egypt, must have been alive. So we think that on the face of it, this seems like a lucky break from abuse, isn't it? Well, from the well, you go straight to a TARDIS. lucky break for him. But in fact, it was bad for him, because this house, landed him in prison eventually landed him in prison for nine years he had to land in prison, because he was bought by this azeez by this minister, who bought him from the traders who

00:23:35--> 00:23:40

found him in the world. Eventually the wife seduced him or try to seduce him

00:23:42--> 00:23:45

unless he tried to seduce him and that seduction

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

landed him in jail.

00:23:49--> 00:24:06

Again, imprisonment on the face of it seems something very bad oh my god is gonna land in jail for nine years. But this jail sentence brought about the fact that he eventually became the Minister of Finance of Egypt

00:24:08--> 00:24:12

so what we saw every time was a bad thing turned out to be a good thing.

00:24:14--> 00:24:16

And you know, today we look at the world

00:24:18--> 00:24:25

so Allah subhanaw taala is the master planner pleasing always gone to jail bed always thrown in a well bed?

00:24:26--> 00:24:29

Oh is living in the house of the Minister of Finance Mashallah.

00:24:30--> 00:24:33

Well, the man is living at the Curtis key Mashallah.

00:24:34--> 00:24:37

Or is living in the Union buildings to say Mashallah

00:24:38--> 00:24:40

man is in jail, that

00:24:41--> 00:25:00

not the playing of Allah, the master plan of Allah makes all these things turn out to be good. I mean, we look at the world today. And what do we say, oh, Muslims are dying in Syria. Muslims are dying. We can't look at the TV anymore. We can't watch the news. You know what's happening, and we blame America and we blame this and we blame Israel and we play

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

The Arabs and we look at Iraq and we look at Iran, Iran and we look at him honey Stan, and we look at the Arab state. And we think, Oh, you know, just disaster upon disaster upon disaster.

00:25:11--> 00:25:34

But really, if you want to have an insight into the divine plan, you need first to read the Quran, and particularly the story of Yusuf Ali Salaam. And secondly, read the history of your Prophet Muhammad Allah. And you will read all the mishaps that happened in his life. That turned out to be the biggest blessings not only for him, but also for this woman.

00:25:36--> 00:25:41

I mean, one would think, let's assume that we were present at the Battle of God. Let's assume you were there.

00:25:43--> 00:25:54

You are with the Sahaba you saw a man come and throw a spear prophet service through a sphere at his uncle Hamza

00:25:55--> 00:26:03

killed him, then took a knife, open his stomach, to God is levar clever and chewed it

00:26:07--> 00:26:26

I think it would have been the most shocking thing for us to see. The Prophet look at the most shocking scene scenes in Abby's house, I'm looking at his he loved how he grew up with homicide. They were boys together, you start going down in Makkah together. They live in the same house together in the US of Abu Talib.

00:26:29--> 00:26:37

And we would have thought, Oh my God, this Islam this, Deen and these Muslims are not gonna last we are being slaughtered here today.

00:26:39--> 00:26:45

And I'm gonna tell you the good thing about that or the good thing about what, but you should buy a book on the eastern read

00:26:46--> 00:26:49

the tribe that that came from

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

the so called

00:26:53--> 00:27:00

downturn in the fortunes of Muslims. So what I mean by that, if you are dealing with an emphasis on a bother

00:27:01--> 00:27:08

I think we would have been extremely scared 313 men were the one horse

00:27:10--> 00:27:17

against 1000 of the Quraysh every one of them was on a camel equipped

00:27:18--> 00:27:28

that allows them to change the fortunes of the Nabi. sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The battle against the Romans, we were 160,000

00:27:30--> 00:27:35

guess how many how many there? Oh, the Romans were 600,000.

00:27:36--> 00:27:41

Okay, well, I think we should go back to Medina. Harlan neuroleadership. Come on, let's go back.

00:27:42--> 00:28:04

This is a last week how can you fix it now we have 600,000. Romans, not just any army. These you've seen them on the T on phones, the Roman army, the legions of the Romans, how well they train. victory was in the hands of who sleeps weekly was in the hands of those who said, Humala says about them. When Maria tawakkol Allah

00:28:06--> 00:28:10

He will put his trust in Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will

00:28:12--> 00:28:39

be enough for him. So again, then when you look at Syria, to me, don't cry, to be too sad. Because remember, nothing happens. Allah says in the Quran, not a leaf will drop except by the permission of Allah. And Allah by the consciousness of Allah is conscious. Do you think all those people dying this Allah doesn't know that they're dying?

00:28:40--> 00:28:43

Maybe Don't you think the angels are complaining to Allah?

00:28:44--> 00:28:48

Cow Yala? What do you do something? Muslims are dying children, men, women and children.

00:28:50--> 00:28:53

But the master plan we can't know we cannot know it.

00:28:54--> 00:28:59

We cannot know it only allows father knows what the divine plan is.

00:29:01--> 00:29:04

We can only wait for history to tell us what the divine plan is going to be.

00:29:07--> 00:29:18

So what may be bad to us and may deem as a non victory for Muslims may in future be the greatest triumph that Muslims ever had inshallah.

00:29:19--> 00:29:23

We may get to the twists and turns of the life of us

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

in the following manner.

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

By the way, I did this last night so all these blank ones probably happened sometime in the middle of the night while I was sleeping.

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

So

00:29:37--> 00:29:57

please don't blame me. So the tourists in his life, love his father. He was thrown into the well. And and the outcome of that was he became a member of the House of the Minister of Finance motorists, from the minister's house to prison and from prison. He was appointed as the Minister of Finance of Egypt

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

nicer in the big

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

Was this just a story? Was it just a narrative? A lot of like telling a story to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? No.

00:30:10--> 00:30:22

As I said in the beginning, surah Yunus surah, who understood our use of the surah of mercy was revealed, at the same time, to the needy salatu salam.

00:30:24--> 00:30:31

And what time was that? When the Prophet and the companions was in the most dangerous situation in Makkah,

00:30:33--> 00:30:40

it became intense, so intense, that the operation took effect to kill the enemy so long.

00:30:42--> 00:30:49

Just as the brothers of use of took attack amongst themselves,

00:30:51--> 00:30:52

to do what?

00:30:54--> 00:30:57

To kill an abuse of Alisha to some similar

00:30:59--> 00:31:05

the circumstances of use of marriage the circumstances of the Navy so Allah Horace Allah,

00:31:07--> 00:31:10

never used to have was taken from Palestine where he lived.

00:31:13--> 00:31:15

And he was estranged from his family was taken to Egypt.

00:31:18--> 00:31:25

At the same time when this was revealed, the Nabi sallallahu Sallam lost his wife and lost his uncle.

00:31:26--> 00:31:29

His strange, normal closest family was gone.

00:31:31--> 00:31:41

The prophets of Salaam was exiled from his home in Makkah to go to Medina. Yusuf was also exiled from Palestine, and had to go to Egypt.

00:31:44--> 00:31:53

Surah Yusuf, in fact, prepares the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the trials and tribulations which awaits him, allows one to

00:31:54--> 00:31:58

see what happened to us. The same is going to happen to you

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

see machines or happen to use you, the same is going to happen to your prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:32:08--> 00:32:09

What is the last five minutes a

00:32:11--> 00:32:17

warmer yet tequila warriors? What is required God consciousness and patients

00:32:20--> 00:32:33

were they all enough to tell us they say in a little sentence mokara illa soriana they say that whosoever fields

00:32:35--> 00:32:48

grief person who said maybe you lost somebody, your wife, your child, the brother your sister. If you grieve the Allah say, read surah Yusuf, Allah will remove your grief.

00:32:49--> 00:33:11

So there is a panacea for grief. You know people always want to know, what should I do to take the grief away, read continuously read, not the Arabic of surah Yusuf read the English for those who don't understand it, because the English will give you the kissa or the narrative as a took away the grief of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:33:12--> 00:33:23

I said in the beginning, a very important fact of the sutra is that Nabil Yusuf is addressed as a human being in the surah not as a prophet.

00:33:25--> 00:33:32

It focuses on his life as a human being, because all knobbies is at logica borderies. They may not know it

00:33:34--> 00:33:39

allows wangler only refers to me as a prophet in Surah Zafira

00:33:41--> 00:33:54

later, Allah spawn refers to him as a prophet on the tongue of NaVi Musab Salaam and Moses a, while acara Jakob used to mean Cabell built by Prophet Musa and the Buddha said to the Jews in Egypt,

00:33:55--> 00:34:31

I Prophet came to you before with clear signals and clear signs and a clear message from Isaiah shocky Morocco, but you remain in doubt with what he came with. So the initial history of the use of our Salaam was as a human being, like the first 40 years of the life of Muhammad sallahu wa salam was as a human being. So again, the similarity between Abu Yusuf and NaVi sola, sola, and in both those periods of them not having it becoming a V, they showed the strength of character.

00:34:32--> 00:34:38

I mean, a young man being seduced by the beautiful woman said no

00:34:39--> 00:34:42

man was thrown into prison, put his trust in Allah.

00:34:44--> 00:34:50

Every time it was about consciousness and he never lost people say well, people go to jail, you know they can rehabilitate them.

00:34:54--> 00:34:58

But in the case of use of alleys asylum, allows for handler

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

came from prison, one of the highest positions in the government of Egypt.

00:35:07--> 00:35:18

So this surah then deals with three things. It deals with a triumph of men over he circumstances.

00:35:19--> 00:35:24

I mean, if you as a six year old boy is thrown into a well, the biggest worry would be

00:35:25--> 00:35:29

and never get out here. impossible to get out of the world.

00:35:32--> 00:35:34

If we're in prison in a foreign country,

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

especially Egypt, even today, they probably throw the key away, forget about you.

00:35:41--> 00:35:50

Even from the time of use of up to to the door to land in any prison in the Middle East. The worst place you can be asked this Jewish guy was

00:35:53--> 00:36:15

in wherever the Abu Dhabi, wherever it was carrados whatever his name was, by the way, that was a bad thing. I don't agree with what the Arabs did, too. But again, you know, the things they did to me when I went to Israel, maybe it was payback time, I don't, because they really treat us bad. I mean, you know, that those of you who have been tried to enter Jerusalem try to enter

00:36:18--> 00:36:57

that part of the world, they make it extremely difficult for you. So yeah, things were made very difficult for him. But despite that, I still say that stub Murthy should have been shown for for an old person, like him. And I think particularly for Muslims to have done that, I think would have been a tremendous international gesture of mercy, from the side of a Muslim government, to have shown more mercy to an old bed and should have made it especially to a Jewish person. In the times in which we live. It could have brought about a lot of it could have taken away a lot of the anger that Jews in this country felt particularly I think, towards Muslims and, of course, against the

00:36:57--> 00:37:16

Arabs for the kind of treatment they meted out to him. But I must also tell the family of this professor that they would have treated the Muslim no better. In fact, because you had a white skin maybe was treated a little bit better than I would have been treated. If I had to be charged with murder in one of the Arab states, I don't think they would have treated me as well as they treated him.

00:37:18--> 00:37:25

So the sooner then deals with three things. It deals with the triumph of men over circumstances.

00:37:27--> 00:37:31

Secondly, deals with a triumph of hope, over despair.

00:37:33--> 00:37:35

And would have been completely hopeless.

00:37:36--> 00:37:42

It also deals with a question of forgiveness and mercy.

00:37:44--> 00:37:57

And the same exactly the same thing it used to have been Mohammed salatu salam D. So I'm sure when the levees or some windows. When this surah was revealed to him, he realized that is a very image of his own life.

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

I mean, when he curry conquered majority say to his tribe,

00:38:05--> 00:38:50

in Habu and to tilaka. He said to the courage, when they asked him, they said to me, no, you're a noble son of a noble man. What are you going to do with us? And we know what we did to you what you're going to do with us, he said, his Habu, he said, go on to tell you a female Subhan Allah, he said, Go forget about what you did to me, you wanted to kill me, you did this and that to me forget, forget about it. And never use it exactly the same when his brothers came when there was famine in Palestine, and abeokuta, send them to Egypt. And when they came there, and abusive, recognize them he didn't recognize, they didn't recognize him, but he recognized them. And he gave them the food

00:38:50--> 00:38:52

and they loaded the camels.

00:38:53--> 00:39:04

And when they came the second time, and he informed them who he was, and they will became very afraid is Oh my god. This is our little brother that we threw into the well.

00:39:06--> 00:39:08

What is he gonna do to us now? He said,

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

I forgive you.

00:39:12--> 00:39:17

All I want from you is, I want you to take this again is

00:39:18--> 00:39:25

he's a he gave him a kind of a handkerchief said put this over the face of my father, his blindness will go away and bring him to me.

00:39:26--> 00:39:42

Look at the mercy and the forgiveness and the mirror image between Mohammed Salah la sala and use of Elisa to Salah. So these this surah was in revealed at exactly the time when Abby was at his lowest.

00:39:43--> 00:39:50

And the lowest end of his life was when the people have typed through him with total blood ran down his ankles.

00:39:52--> 00:39:57

Nobody could help him. Secondly, it was such a low level of display.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

That he said y'all are you

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

forsaken me Please don't do this to me What have I done?

00:40:05--> 00:40:07

What sin if I committed

00:40:09--> 00:40:17

now the use of was at exactly the same point he was in prison he was in the well, exactly the same but allows longer says

00:40:18--> 00:40:25

to both of them to Yusuf and Mohamed Salah salah and to me and to you

00:40:26--> 00:40:36

that your life and my life will never be one Easy Street. Nobody's life. The richest men, the poorest man at the ups and their downs, everybody

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

because a lot of swatara says Lena Balu Are

00:40:41--> 00:40:45

you home? Asad llama, Allah says,

00:40:46--> 00:40:52

I will send you trials and tribulations. Why? In order to know

00:40:53--> 00:41:16

who of you are the best in deeds? How do you react when Allah sends a test? For example, to give charity, Allah looks and says, Oh man, give charity, give charity to get out of his difficulty? He doesn't say, Well, I'm in difficulties or you know, or he's ill. What does he do? Yes, he goes to the doctor, he goes to the hospital. But what does he do? He gives charity.

00:41:20--> 00:41:23

Professor Sam said, Thou will

00:41:27--> 00:41:28

cure

00:41:29--> 00:41:31

your sick people with charity

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

could

00:41:35--> 00:41:50

cure the sick with charity, charity, the greatest good deed that a Muslim can do everything in life that you need for our loss on the bring ease.

00:41:51--> 00:41:54

give charity. Now you may say,

00:41:55--> 00:41:57

Well, now Who do I give charity?

00:41:58--> 00:42:13

To I buy 12 braids to give the guy in the corner that the diapers every day. Now open my driver's window, give him 205 rain or change? What shall I do? Remember, the best charity

00:42:16--> 00:42:19

is the charity that you give to your nearest family

00:42:20--> 00:42:21

what you need

00:42:24--> 00:42:30

and the worst charities when you bypass your needy family and give it to a stranger who's also in need.

00:42:32--> 00:42:49

Why? Because your family has got two rights over you three rights. If they're Muslim, they have the right of a Muslim, right have a family member and right of a poor person. Three lights, another Muslim only has two rights.

00:42:51--> 00:42:51

being Muslim,

00:42:55--> 00:42:56

and being indeed

00:42:58--> 00:43:02

a Christian as the right of humanity over you and the right of poverty.

00:43:05--> 00:43:09

But we're all the same. We never look into our me and you all of us

00:43:10--> 00:43:16

will always look we always have to go to Hialeah, or Google later, commander

00:43:17--> 00:43:30

was sick in terms of that. We never think maybe there's a family member, you know, a lot of family in the province that sort of talks about giving to your family member who doesn't outwardly look poor.

00:43:31--> 00:43:36

But you know, their circumstances outwardly in the house, maybe they even drive a cup.

00:43:38--> 00:43:43

But because it's your family, you know, the circumstances of that family.

00:43:45--> 00:43:52

And you know, they could do with a gift from you to make to ease the burden. So that's very important.

00:43:54--> 00:43:59

And allows one that talks about success, the success of the profits and our success Allah says

00:44:02--> 00:44:03

that number users final

00:44:05--> 00:44:10

in verse 101, Robbie cut at a 20 minute monkey while Tawny

00:44:12--> 00:44:13

mint will Heidi

00:44:15--> 00:44:19

never use of says Oh Allah, you have given me power.

00:44:20--> 00:44:23

I've become a very very powerful man in this government.

00:44:25--> 00:44:30

Voluntary and you have taught me the interpretation of dreams

00:44:31--> 00:44:32

and events

00:44:35--> 00:44:36

for 30 some hours

00:44:37--> 00:44:41

it says Creator of the heavens and the earth

00:44:42--> 00:44:59

and tower Lee and tower Lee strange this word comes up every single time in hora. How this time Wally, as we noted earlier, how every, maybe every third was Allah uses the word value or Alia. Maybe it

00:45:00--> 00:45:18

Allah knew that we needed to be involved in the struggle for understanding and coming to terms with his term in our lifetime. Because the Quran is meant for this time, no prophets will come anymore. We have only the Quran, Allah says, He says I'm Tiwari, Allah, you are my Wali, you are my protect

00:45:19--> 00:45:19

cydonia

00:45:22--> 00:45:24

in this physical world in which we live, and in the

00:45:27--> 00:45:48

telephony Muslim, what did they ask for? He asked for death as a Muslim. Imagine is a prophet of Allah. He asked to die as a Muslim, one Hector de de Salim. And what does he finally say? What is it finally he says, and you will know me with a good people.

00:45:50--> 00:46:00

But the righteous people, as if he's saying to Allah founder, y'all, I recognize that before me, there were many, many good people who have passed away.

00:46:01--> 00:46:14

And when I pass away, as a Muslim, I want you to put me in the company of those good people. He didn't think, well, I must be a prophet, I must be the best person. Just put me in general know.

00:46:17--> 00:46:31

If I'm a good person, lots of good people have preceded me. Look at the humility of this prophet of allowance, you can this humbleness. Now, I'm a prophet. But I'm telling you now, please, there must be a lot of good people in general, please connect me with a good paper.

00:46:33--> 00:47:02

And this was the message, same message, which was revealed to Mohamed Salah at exactly the same time, and under the same circumstances that will be used for so next time when you read the use of Aliso Salaam, when you read it in English, readers must read in English because if you don't understand Arabic, you won't understand what the message is. If you read it in English, next time, then read it. And think about the life of the nerissa Larson

00:47:03--> 00:47:40

and compare it and compare it in with your own life. Could you hear and see the message allows 100 gifts to you. So now last one, the makers of his earlier of his family, may Allah grant us a death as Muslims, we are lost count of the makers of those who will be in the company of the righteous and pious people in Sharla in the gender and finally I just want to again, announce that classes have commenced first class was in Sunday, and the class next class will be in Charlotte this Sunday. Again from 1130 to 1230. It is a class for the whole family.

00:47:42--> 00:48:30

If it's called on Sunday, tell the ladies will put the heaters on the back for them. So please, don't you come and leave your children especially for young people, very, very important. They come as well. These are very, very important lectures. And I don't know if I live long enough to repeat these lectures. So please come not for my benefit for your benefit. And what we busy with now is still read. So this Sunday pass we gave an introduction to who is allowed panatela and this week inshallah will be the lesson on on law. Because we know we learn to know Allah and we learn to do as I said, How to worship allows panatela so this lesson inshallah on Sunday will be an introduction to

00:48:30--> 00:48:36

Islamic law, or as we know it will allow to Allah Allah, Allah Kumar
