wanna worry about too
Okay we are hermen hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala saving over Amina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Brothers and sisters, welcome to another session on use of Allah has set out to set up. And as you can see, the whole story of useful as salam that Allah has revealed to us has so much for us to take and things that I'm saying here on a weekly basis that are, they're only really the tip of the iceberg. The Quran is such that only on the Day of Judgment, we will find out how deep the Qur'an was, every facility that has come to this earth has done his best to try and interpret the code and but they can only go so deep. And each new facet that comes goes deeper or says something new, or gives another different perspective. And operand is unfinished because of what is the word of a
large order. So anyway, the lessons of this and the, the the analyzing of these stories will also continue and continue, you can you can pick on different different points from the from the Tafseer of the Quran. And specifically with this Surah Surah Yusuf, again, what I'm saying is only a few things, if you really go in and delve into the seed itself, you'll find that there's so much that can be said on this. So he is used by salatu salam and his is with the king and he is asked to get the get the position because he was discussing with the king, how they could and what they could do about this dream that the king has seen and the you know, 14 or 15 years or allying ahead and
there's going to be a lot to do so use an extra Salaam he put himself forth as the person who can look after this. Now what's amazing here is that Allah azza wa jal has given
and he's giving now Yusuf Ali Salaam, the ability to devise the entire plan. These are things that are that are occurring in the mind of use of Alexa, as we speaking in the story. So if you think about it, Yusuf Ali Salam hasn't even looked after sheep.
He hasn't looked at the sheep.
He hasn't even looked after him. He hasn't gone out and done a day's work in the fields. His brothers were the ones that went out there and they did all this work. Now usually, I'm sitting there talking to the king and he's telling him that how he's going to look after the entire crops of Egypt and how he's going to make make, you know, plans to try and save and secure as much of the harvest that comes through. This is from a man who hasn't really gone through any of any of this, you know, farming and so on. And so on a lot. Now he's not he's not bluffing. He's not saying that, you know, give it to me, give me a chance King now, I'll try and prove I can do this. He's not doing
this. What is happening here is that Allah azza wa jal is, is giving us a Salaam not only the
look how many two feet Look how many ways Allah gives and makes tofik Nawaz tofi tofik is when Allah facilitates for somebody he makes the ASVAB or he makes the means to an end become easy, that's tofield so when we say to give metallography tofield that means May Allah facilitate for you may Allah bring all the means together in a way that makes it easy for you to you know, get your tasks done. Now look how many tofield allies putting together number one the construction of useful items life of what you've just gone through number two, what I just said last week, you know about the many different factors of how the king suddenly sees this man so important, right? And and I built
that up last last week, so I'm not gonna go through that again. Number three useful is Ram him coming to the king and having this conversation after after the dream. So the dream was another tofield the king sees the dream and he needs he needs someone to tell him what's what's going on. Number so usually isn't coming at the moment when he's when he's had the dream is another tofik. Now another way of facilitating this to happen. The next one number four is that useful as lamb is sitting here and the king is admiring usable as a lamb more and more than one is too
to him and he's even told him that look out you know you're going to be a person who's going to get a lot of respect from me from today. And I'm even going to offer you a position in this in this you know, Kingdom of mine so on. So that's another trophy for the heart of the king to open to you. So you don't get all of this coming just like that dropping just like that. And I want you to understand this, that if it wasn't for Allah making all these different combinations come together, what is to happen next would not come. Number five is useless and I'm sitting there and his his right now Allah is giving him new knowledge.
And this is this is from Allah Rabe he gives it to certain people, and he gives it specifically to those who are Marcin, those who have done some excellent work, or those who have done actions with the mindset that Eliza was watching them. So they did it for Allah say, Allah gives them special favors. So one of the special favors Allah gave Yusuf Alayhi Salaam Salaam is that while he's while he's sitting and talk to the king, you know, there are certain people who have done that Allah Allah, Allah gives us and this is a trophy from Allah, the sitting with you. And as they're talking out loud, they get the idea.
As they know, sometimes you must have been sometimes in a in a meeting someone you as you're talking, suddenly you got this idea. Our friend don't think that that was you. Okay, that was facilitating from Allah sake, but he gave that trophy. So as you're sitting there, and you're, you've got that sudden, you know, light bulb clicking last from Alaska, that I'm useful, I sort of got that right now he's thinking, you know, King, if you give me the opportunity to look after the whole Minister of Agriculture, give me give me that. And I can show you that how I can be not only trustworthy, but I can show you how to plan for the entire seven bad years that are to come ahead.
And then the seven good years, I'm not going to just consume all of it or do whatever I will, I've got a whole plan and he talked to the king of how he would do this. That again is from the tofik from Allah xojo. So anyway, what happens is a lot and says in number 56, waka Lika, McKenna used to fill up this is how I established uses in the earth. Now useful Isilon from the man who's running always. So first his or who's always, you know, got somebody after him or someone do trying to do something to him because of his, you know, beauty or whatever it is. So from his house, his brothers are trying to put against him from the well, the people who have found him and trying to enslave him
in to sell him off from the palace, you have the woman who's trying to seduce him. So let us find the solution from the prison, you know, in prison his day, he's trying to get out, but he can't find a way out. He's stuck there for another seven years. And then finally, when he comes here, a lot of them now establishes him, what does that mean? That means now has given him firmness on the earth. Again, what does that mean? My brothers and sisters, if you reflect in your life, you will see that you had instability in your life until Allah makes you more and more stable in life is a big lesson here. What is that? Well, there was a time when you were a little kid, right now today, you know,
Mashallah, you got a job you set all your dishes that we will take you back to the time when you were when you were just a child, when your child, the whole world big for you, there's so many things that are happening, there are so many things that could go wrong for you.
But then as you move along, every education that and every test that you passed, you got Tamkeen, you were established, every time you went for, you know, from from one, let's say, from school, to college to university, Allah gave you some kin, Allah gave you stability. And when you got your job,
when you got your job, that's what allows you gel really establishes you. Because now you've got a good income. Now Allah is giving you a way of empowering others. That's real funky. Now forget you being a little kid and others having the power over you. You've got power over others. So what a law does is a person's life is as the moving along from the birth to their death, as the moving along Allah switching from you been overpowered by others, to you having power over others, and that that's happening slowly, slowly. But there are certain points in your life when Allah really establishes you. And one of the ways is when I was giving you a good income that you you don't have
to worry about tomorrow Are you don't want to have to worry about how you're going to look after yourself in terms of your bills and whatever else it is. That is a big way establishes you and that's why I mentioned Xia McKenna.
Use the fill up. This is how I made use of Allah Salam stablished on the earth, established on the atom which Earth is talking about what he's talking about the land of missile, the land of missile. Now the, the whole point of this, the surah being revealed was that the Jews came to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and they said, you know, if your well actually it was it was the machine,
the machine, they they are the policies of Makkah. They they went to the Jews, and they said, Is there a way that we can get this this man to be verified whether there is a profit or not? And the Jewish
Jewish rabbis said, you know, one of the one of the they sent a few questions.
And there was there was a few questions.
And one of them was, if he can answer this question, then he's got to be a prophet. Because nobody, nobody save the people who have got the clothes, in knowledge of the Torah, or nobody saved those people who are close to a lack and get this knowledge, which is what we say if he can tell you how. Yousuf who was a prophet, how he was his whole family were in Philistine or around the area Philistine. How did they How did you
become a king in a novel? How did you sort of how do you use it and his whole family, become people who lived and dwellers of Egypt when they their origin comes from philosophy, if you can say that, if he can give you the answer to that. So when they came to the Prophet salallahu salam, there's a whole story behind this, I want to give you the full story, but eventually, Allah azza wa jal, he revealed this, this whole surah this whole surah to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, just to answer that question.
Now here this ayah tells us how Allah azza wa jal from from you know, Philistine but the whole family how because first, this is now useless. And he's established in in Egypt, and later on, we're going to see how his old family is established in Egypt in the London missile. So anyway, a London as he says yet about what when hydrea Shah, the way he established use of Alexa And not only that, he's got an income and he's got a he's got some power. Now he's got a good job and he's got a good position. But Allah says he can move around Egypt wherever he wants. And that's a big you know, tofield from another big term came from Allah which means that not only has Allah established him in
a way that his his secure with his job, Allah has also established in a way that he can move around the land freely, however he wants. Now, this is another big gift of Allah azza wa jal, we people who live here in this country, we don't understand this gift. The people who live in countries that can't go outside the borders will understand this. The people who live in places where they can't go outside the tip towns or cities will understand this. We've got a passport that we can travel wherever the world most of the countries in the world we just can go there without even a visa some countries we need a visa that's fine but still we can go there and we can travel.
This is a big Tamkeen or a way of establishing people on the earth that you can roam around freely, you can go where you want because one of the things that with roaming comes freely is that you've got a man you've got security you you you are protected. And that is that is the from the basics of what you need to have a good life
the front the basics of what people in because if you ask anybody, what what do you actually what do you actually give preference to when you when you want to move somewhere on the earth when you want to move houses? what's the what's the number one thing number two of all the things that you look at when you want to you want to go somewhere where where you're safe safety comes at one of the is one of the most recommended things that people are on the highest on the list that they want. So Allah has given that then he said Lucy Rama Tina Manisha he teaches something else different from this. What is that? Allah says that I could give this to whoever I want no Cebu Rama, Rama My Mercy can
can come to anybody Why is Allah saying this? And why did Allah say while I do mercy Nene, I'm not going to waste the reward of those who excel in good works. Why does the law say that in our number 56 or so the use of well the first part is that don't you think all Muslims that I have to only give it to those people on the earth like this kind of stuff where you've got establishment on the earth and you've got you know, you can roam around where you want and you've got a you know, you've got peace and security for yourself. Don't think that I as a law have to give it to Muslims. Oh,
Those people who believe in me, I can give this to whoever I want on the earth.
That means careful mushrik atheists, people who are my enemies, I can give it to them, Manisha whoever I want. Why? Because this is from my Rama, there are certain things Allah divided from his mercy to give specifically to believers. And there are, there are other things, loads of his other mercy, he said, I'm going to give it to whoever I want.
So, this is from this, we learn that, you know, today the Muslims are, they find themselves, you know, as people who are either occupied or he might find themselves as, as people who are on the run, or people who are, in a way, you know, you could say, suppressed, you know, certain parts of the world. I'm not saying all Muslims, but certain parts of the world, and then some Muslim sit down, I think, you know, why is it that you know, certain people who are against the whole of this mission against Islam against everything as why is it that they've got so much power, so much, so much stability on the earth, so much wealth, has given them? Well, this is not because they're on
And nobody can say that I've got money, I must be on the truth. No, these are things Allah distributes to whoever he wants, how he wants, he can give the biggest, the biggest disbeliever on the earth, who never would want to believe in God, not only that, but he goes against God, and he goes against any messengers, he says, he could give him every kind of wealth he wants. And Allah did that, to fill out a lot of Iraq, Iran was that was the, one of the greatest enemies on the earth.
You know, who who reigned for his with his life, and and that story is going to come later on, but just to make that point, which is, Allah gave it to him, Allah gave him so much wealth, and so much, you know, power and so on, so he can give it to whoever he wants. But then he says, Allah says, Well, I will be original mercy,
that I will not waste don't think as a Muslim will, what's the difference between me and others, if they get the same Allah can just give it to whoever he wants, Allah says, I'm not going to waste your reward, which is that when you Muslim, when you get that from me, you're going to have a few things that the others don't have, which is one, which is that if you're a good Muslim, you're gonna have an AA, you're going to be satisfied with whatever I've given you. You're also going to not misuse your wealth, you're going to give you some other cause, and you're going to spend it in the right way. You're going to be people who will not use it to sin and to get to certain heights on the
on the earth, where you're going to overpower others just because of your whims and desires. You won't do that. So you'll have this, this this object for me and then Allah says, but you might think, well, not every believer who's good to Allah gets the sin from Allah. Allah says, Well, that is true. So well, Angela Hirata hyrulean, Latina American yet upon Allah says, I number 57. That, look, if you've done good on this earth, and you're thinking, why haven't I rewarded you, you should think that you know what, your reward in the after what you're going to get is going to be a lot more than just receiving on this earth. What this this part of the eye means that Allah will give
whoever he wants a reward on this earth and he wherever he wants him to just keep it for the actor. But if you just get it all in the Acura, you'll be better off than getting some in this world and some data. That's the point of this. So anyway, these are some some great lessons I was given at the end of why useful so I've got this establishment and why is the goal of these guys, is that I mentioned to you last week, I think it was that, you know, last week or the week before that I said to you that you could have been you know, he could have thought but he didn't, he could have thought what what what did I do wrong? He didn't think like that. But on the on the back of that I said that
some of us in masiva sometimes sometimes we're in affliction, and we could be in a position thinking well What have I done wrong? Why is it not doing this to me? And then you kind of thinking well, you know, I want to see something really good happen that compensates for all the all the bad that I've seen in my life. Well, if you don't my friend, if you don't, whatever Allah has given you just be happy because once you get to the accurate you will see things and allow reward in such a way that you won't have any regrets whatsoever of what was done to you on this earth. That's one fact. And I want to I want to just put this on just as I
was gonna stamp this this done an anchor this this clearly which is what which is that please remember that that Allah azza wa jal has told us that on the Day of Judgment, there is no
there is no oppression on the Day of Judgment.
So you know, you're thinking well, how come this has come about tested? How Why did this happen to me and why did that happen? all the questions you've got Why did the most even this affliction come to you? Why? Why was you tested like this? Why did you have so
So many tests in a row like this, why is it that you like almost feel like an unfortunate individual that goes through all of this allows Magellan many passes? The Quran has told us that on the Day of Judgment, there is no room, there is not pressure, which means what? Which means by the time you get to Allah azza wa jal when you say look a lot, I've got this bad problem, that problem financial crisis, then I got, you know, this is bad. And then I got a, you know, wives that, you know, put me to my place, you know, I'm saying that, you know, you guys are laughing.
My wife's hookah from one Friday Laci to another Friday, God,
maybe sister Haley saying that?
Well, if she could get up on the Day of Judgment, she could become like, the wife of Iran, and that's another part of the whole, she could say, well, you know, I can live with this guy, my my house Asya, the wife of Pharaoh, she actually on the earth, she made Guatemala anhydrides mentioned the Quran, she said, you know, just just make sure that when I get to the next world, I don't want to be with this man again.
She made this die in the health from me in the commitment to gender or like, if you go into get me to Jana, I just wouldn't be next to you.
I don't want this band to be next to myself or anything to do with, you know, whatever I don't want. I just want to be with you. Right? He didn't actually say that alone to me next day. He just said I want to be next to you online. Yeah. Which kind of shows expressing expresses her feelings that she's going through a lot. So maybe, maybe some women could be like that, that the console so much through with their husband and so on. Whatever your case is, on the day of judgment, Allah said, there is no Doom which means what? Which means Allah gives you so much in return of what happened has happened to you in this earth? That you think Wow, you think wow, you know what, that's it.
That's it. I'm convinced that this is more than justice. This is more than justice. This is this is going over now over the top in trying to make me please and I'm so so so happy. There will be no individual who turn around the day of judgment and say, You know what, man, life is so bad man. I had a bad time and dunia now come here and things are like you know, things are looking really bad. Like I don't see justice here. They will be no man, no woman, no gin, no, no Genia. Nobody on the day of judgment that will say you know what God has done some form of oppression has not been fair. Nobody will even say to the degree of Allah hasn't even been fair. in whichever way Allah supports
them. Even if they go to Johanna, they will know that Allah has not been unfair. Allah has always been fair all along even if they get punishment under their dogma, they will know that Allah has been fair, and we can't comprehend how that's going to work right now. But we should understand that this is here when Allah told you told us when I will ask you that hijo de la Vina amanu economy there are many many rules of capitalism in the next world we should understand that you know what there are things we don't know and full stop let's just carry on doing what we're supposed to do. And when I number 58,
you civilized Salaam has established himself useful as a lamb for the next seven years.
He makes sure that all the men are working under him and he's got many many people working under him he's the highest you know individual in his in his you know, his position and it tells them you know, get this down get that done and so on and they listened to him and for seven years what he does is he made sure that the people of missile don't finish off the ears of corn or things that are not the agriculture that is growing he made sure that they don't just finish it off. And he gives him little little each one he kind of distributes it very equal and says okay, this family will have done much differently would have done with this farm that the rest of it he holds and he stocks the
stocks he stopped for seven years he did that
then come the end of the seven years and by that time what happens is that the actual king himself the king has passed away and usually some actually becomes the king
he's so trustworthy and he's so liked by all the people is another trophy from a lot of that makes him king so now he is now the king of this entire
and usually after seven years now the seven years of drought Come on these are bad you know there's no rain at all. And the first year the crops die man it is bad. There are you know there are not only you know what happens in a drought is that the crops haven't even come the animals start dying peoples can start starving and then they will look to see where they can get food and all around misery all around Egypt from the different different various various countries. people heard that you know what, there's a really good king.
And if you can go to him, and you can present to him that you know what, you're kind of stuck.
And so on, he'll give you something. He's really good king. So this news spreads the whole of Mrs. Egypt is well, you know, going through a good period right now, because they they've got no rains coming down. They've also got a drought, but they've got enough fruit and the king Carson giving them a supply every single year. So by the next year or the following year, whatever the what happens is, you find that the news reaches reaches far and wide and gets to the area of philosophy, and in there, it gets to the news gets to the house of jacobellis, Alaska. So the Aquila Sanchez sons go, he sends his 10 sons, he keeps Binyamin back. And he says attendance goes Go go go. And the
thing that you and why he sent all 10 sons is because the more members of your family you've got, the more he will give you as a supply. So yeah, what I said I'm sorry, but what better I've got 10 sons.
If I send all 10 of them, I'm going to get big times big stock for my for the whole year does come back and he will only give it like, let's say once a year. So he'll give you a good portion but legally once a year and you can just about you know, feed off that. So he's got 10 sons, he sends all 10 sons and allows origin says in our number 58 which is what we use. The brothers of useable s&m they came fadda hollow ally. They came and they entered the place we use what is the most useful item straightaway he recognized them.
But they did not recognize him.
Now he's he's seen 10 guys well, because how can he recognize them and they didn't recognize him as, as if you think about it, that's quite natural. Because his brothers were grown up. And a grown up individually, if you look at them from even if they were 20, something years old, or they were 18, or whatever, if you look at them from that age, till they get to 30 something, you won't see much of a difference in their face. But usually somebody young boy, when they got rid of him, and a young person, as he grows up, his face will change quite a lot, quite a lot to the extent that if you take two possibles of the same person five years apart, while they're young, you won't recognize the
difference between the same person with that photo five years ago, and today, his photo you won't recognize the difference. That's how much of a change we go through. So that's why they never recognize it.
And then what happened is that they came in and said, you know, King, you know, we need you know, some will come there's 10 of us in our family. So usual assumption. Okay, so you are 10 brothers. Yes, we are 10 brothers. He said, So, you've got father, they said, Yes, you've got father. Okay. And you've got any others in your family? They Oh, yeah. We've got a little brother. Name is Binyamin said yes.
Okay, okay. No problem, no problem.
He was he gathered all the different sacks. So he's got one sack for each of the brothers. And it gives them a whole sack of you know, foods that they can go back and it has dried food they can eat throughout the year, inshallah. He gives each one one sack. And he says,
I would like you to go and bring for me, your little brother, there's 11 of you. Why wouldn't you want to bring 11 in get an extra sack, your 10. Today, you've got 10 sons, you bring your brother, you get 11 sacks. So go to your father and tell him that why would he send the Sunday, you know, the brother of yours now uses his whole purpose was that he really wants to see his young brother. And he knows that just as he was mistreated by his brothers, his younger brother probably is getting mistreated by these brothers too.
It says Allah Thoreau said, Look, just to make them even feel more than they need to convince the father he says, Don't you see? Ooh, feel K. He said, Look, when I take the measures of scoops from the grains that I've got, I'm giving full measures. Can you see that? Do you see what an hieromonk zielen Don't you see that I'm, I've been so good to you in keeping hubby's bought useful as it is. He kept them overnight. He made them rest really well. He gave them nice rooms. They were really comfortable. He gave them really good food to eat. Right? And they know he hosted them really nicely. And he said in the morning, as they were about to go He said, You know Don't you see I'm
giving you full portions. And I've also been very good to you in being a host
for inlanta Tony D.
If you actually don't bring this brother of yours, then
there's going to be no measure for you next year.
And I'm not going to even be that kind to you that close to you. As inaccurate as giving you this and told you to go I'd like to make you sleep here in my palace.
Now, on the one side, you know, he's given so much to them that, you know, if you bring your brother, you're going to get all this extra sack and, and he's also in between said, Look how good I am. On the other hand, he said, if you don't bring your brother then I'm sorry. Now, what this does is it brings to the mind of the brothers that does this king thing that we probably like, does he think that we haven't got another brother?
Okay, he wants to see him fine, but the benefits are there. If we bring that other brother, there's going to be an extra sack, that's fine. And the king has really been kind to us, as well as the daughter lesson here. The lesson here is a letter on a new field. For a person to say to somebody else, look, I've done you a favor.
Don't you see the favors I've done for you, I want you to do this task. Now, there's a lesson to be learned. Because you can always say your favors onto others. Sometimes when you say your favors onto others, it's hard on. And sometimes it's hard. And so what's the whole? How do we know when to when it's hard as hell, no one's harder. Or when it's when it's bad for you to do that.
It depends on your objective. If you're trying to put somebody down, if you're trying to belittle them by boasting your favors onto them, then it's not hard.
But if you're trying to get to a good objective by by saying your favors, then it's harder. So for example, if you're in a business of saying, look, look, I want you to get me this deal. Because Don't you see, look, you know, in the past, when we've done dealings together, and you've seen how good I am in my deals that I've done, and you've seen how much I can bring to this to the business that we've got together, but I want you to go out and convince this other person that he needs to invest in business. That's what Hello, because the objective is what to make more more money, that's fine. And this business partner, you've got partner, you've got you telling him your favorite of
yours on him. Why? Because you want him to be encouraged to go and get that other person and invest in this business, that's fine. But imagine
you had you had given someone some some let's say salad or something, you've given someone some southco. And then what happens is that after you give, Oh, you've helped someone out in some way, you've given some some loan or you've helped them in some way. And after a bit of time, what happens is that this person, they kind of kind of annoying you a bit, but they kind of you know, you're not really happy with them. And you say to them, hey, you
didn't remember, yeah,
I give you all these things here.
I'll give me all these things.
I did a favor, you don't know you forgot the finger do for you. Today, you do this.
And this is a different way you're trying to belittle the person, you're trying to, you're trying to make them feel small, you're trying to show your power over them. And, you know, Allah gave you the trophy to give that help in the first place. And this one where you can't boast favours onto somebody else. And it's not right is mentioned in Surah Baqarah surah number two, iron number
262263264 if you check those ads out, you will find it that allows or that says that when you give some sadaqa when you help someone out, don't follow it with some words that are going to hurt them. That Hey, you, you're the one who takes off us, you know, every year we give you and now look what you do not look what you do. Yeah. Meaning that if you carry on doing what you're gonna do, then I'm not going to help you out anymore. Meaning that you're trying to make them feel small. Or for example law says bill many will other you're trying to, you're trying to boast your favors to try and try and just keep the mouth shut to try and keep them away from whatever it is. But it's not
getting you to a good objective. This one that use of ally Salaam is doing is getting him to a good objective because he wants to try and save his brother from any loom or oppression that these 10 brothers are doing over this one brother so he really wants to see him and that's why he put this condition that look firstly like I've been good to you meaning that look if you come next year I'm going to be good to you as well. If you come next year I will give you extra that's fine. But if you don't bring him then there's going to be nothing for you next year. So anyway. They didn't say now this is again why is Allah adding this ons and number 61 they said sun ra will do sudden ra will do
and who about who were in Allah file and looking looking, you know, we're definitely going to
persuade our father.
We are definitely going to persuade our father and we are we are sure to do that. So then use of la sala what happened is that when you when you came to this king, obviously to come
To the kingdom trying to get something from the king, you had to bring him some goods in exchange of all the, you know, all the sacks of food is going to give to you. So every person that comes to Mr to Egypt to see us what brings them something from the house, what they've got, it might not be something that you eat, but it's something else that you give any return on that he gives you full sacks and so
so what you serve as a lamb did is that he said to his, the young men that were working for him, he said, before you tie the socks up, I want you to put the goods, the few goods they bought from me, I want you to put it inside on the top of the food that I've given, and then tie the sacks so that when they finally get back to the, to their homes, I want them to, to realize how much of a good individual I've been. And the Quran reveals one thing that Allahu Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah,
so that they will definitely come back to me, I want these these individuals to come back to me, meaning that he wants them to definitely make he wants to make a case for Binyamin to come back Come come to him in the following year. Now, why is Allah mentioning all of this? Well, again, the human psychology comes here, which is that, you know, when you've done a favor to someone in a good way, you're more likely to get what you want.
So if you're having a problem getting something from someone, and you want them to do for you, you're more likely to get it done if you do favors and if you be kind to them. And on this note, I'm going to say that some of you and I mean serious about these guys. Yeah, I know I was crack jokes about this year. Me serious about this. If you got if you've got marital problems, if you've got problems with your wife, or your wife, you got problems with your husband. Sometimes your problems continue for years and it gets worse because both of them mine stalemate. stalemate means that I move in husband things I am moving. And the worst thing Well, I'm moving husband things that you do
I told you to do. I said, Yeah, you may do what you told me to do in a minute.
So becomes stalemate.
I remember this one, one guy. So Mohammed told me years back, it was must have been back 15 years back or something. He told me he said mommy Rama is Mega Man problems my wife. So what's the problem? He said, you know, we are giving. So what are you arguing about?
He said it over the kitchen.
Over the kitchen? Is uh, my wife said to me that she wants new kitchen.
And I said to my wife,
no, no, I'm going to do for you. So my wife said, Just do it. I wouldn't know these these tops changes, cupboards change whatever. They said. No, make me do it. So that's it. I'll still make. So they're fighting over this. And I say to the guy said, Listen, I said, and you got the Have you got the money is to actually give her new kitchen, because you've got it.
You've got the money to give any good. Yeah, I've got it. So why don't just give it to her?
Because then she will feel like she's won over me. And I'm saying my bra. It's like my trousers. Yeah, she's gonna wear my trousers. You know, I'm saying, I can't get my trousers up. It's like, come on. It's not like, you know, your trousers have just suddenly disappeared from me and she's wearing trousers. It's not like she's taken over your whole life. You do her a favor, she will change. My husband did this favor for me. Um, my heart softened up. I'm gonna soften up towards my husband, I'm gonna do something good for my husband. That's how it works. If you get stalemate, you say no, you do that? No, you do this and non Armenia, Armenia. I said, it's going to be fight and it
will carry on for months. Carry on for years. And it takes and I mean, some of you sitting here, you could just laugh over what I've just said here. But actually, it takes a lot for you to just say, Okay, here it goes. I'm gonna put my head down. I'm gonna do my wife a favor. Yeah, it takes a lot for the wife sometimes to say, you know what, I'll put my head down. I'm gonna cook him his favorite dish or do something good for him that he's gonna like, it takes a lot. But you know, once you make the move, it makes it easier. So what I want to say to you that all this abusable Islamic, what do we learn from this is that even in business or in your house, wherever you are, you want to get to
something sometimes the way is that you do favors onto people, you'd be good. You'd be kind, you throw extras in and they see you as a good person and say, You know what? The deal is here. The deal is here. This person's being you know, this person's got all these extra features and we want this. So, then Allah says in the next verse, And Number 63
Hello Mr. Raja Illa Avi when they return back to the Father straightaway they said oh Father Mooney Amina kg they haven't even opened their sacks yet
they haven't even open even open the sacks of food yet. The first thing is human say and you why I'm saying humans because I want you to think about this is that there's a lot of human psychology going on in this in this in this surah is that a human is not just come and put the socks down say father you know it's been wonderful. I know it's been wonderful but we can't we can't even go back.
We can't go back until you don't allow Binyamin to go with us. And if you do Knechtel wine Allah will have you will get another extra sack if you allow him to come with us and we will definitely secure and we will we will we will look after him.
The father says hey, you're gonna look after him like he looked after his brother.
You think I forgot?
The way you told me you brother the way you told me that you're going to look after Yousuf and he's been gone for the last however many years. Now you want to take minion from me
love Ohio in the heart of our allies, the one that is the only one that can protect you now as you not only do protection Well, Mr. Romney is the one who has the most mercy of those who have no mercy. So in any way that don't talk to me now usable so I knew that this was going to be the case is going to be really difficult to get his brother to come to Egypt
and to try and make that extra thing he not only put a threat that if they come Don't come without Binyamin it's finished game over they will never be able to get any more any more crops and useless also knows what the six more years of a drought is just We are number one, the six more years of drought he knows that from the King's dream.
So while I'm my father omata the next ayah I number 65 when they finally open this axe, what do you do with that? They find the goods they took to the king have been returned back to them. They said oh Father Yeah, Ivana. Oh, Father returned back to the father again, man, I believe. Have he be dasanagu the trainer What else can we ask for? Look at it. The Kings been so good to us. He's returned back to sell the goods that we took to him. He's even given that back to us what better person can you get? Can Can you get one amuro Elena wanna
know King, we're gonna be so good to her. In a family of getting this extra sack, we're going to look out for our brother, we're going to get a whole extra camel, a whole extra common load of goods for our brother because each brother took took with them a camel for this entire journey. And they said look, we've been here mingled we're going to get one extra camo worth of you know, a load worth of goods for ourselves, that allocating your seat. It's so easy for the police. It's so easy for us to get this.
So the father then, you know sees this and you know with favors upon favors upon favors. They've told him how useless and kept them they told him how he's fed them. They told him how how good this king was and the fathers now you know, he's melting and he says okay, but he puts a condition now.
The next III number 66 he says Len auto Silla who I'll never let Binyamin leave with you
had to tune in mostly Aminullah until you don't swear by Allah, that you are definitely going to come back with Binyamin to me. In the end, you help me come except if you're all surrounded by maybe some bandits and robbers or whatever and something happens on and I'm not taking that into into the equation but I want you to take an oath and say what law here we're going to bring. Bring. You know, binyomin back Back to you, fella, Tomasi, when they gave the oath to the Father, the father said, Allahu Allah man, boo ki, don't forget that Allah is the one that you have just been trusting this whole thing to. So whatever you said, I want to remind you guys, you've just said a lot is the one
that I put in front as a trust, to say what I'm saying is true. Now, I want you to understand a few things from from this part of the of the surah. And there's another big lesson that we're going to another couple of lessons we're going to learn. First is
you want you want something to take place and normal the norm is that you shouldn't get people to take Olds
You know, today is like, Well, why are you online here, he won't lie here he, I mean, one conversation he said about 10 more lies. And you don't need to do that You, you, you devalue the the value of a lie, it's it's become a real, you know, it's something that is is not supposed to have happened in our cultures. And I have to say, some of our Arab brothers are worse in this than the non Arab brothers in their in our lives. And the amount of allies that the more you use this word, the more permanent becomes, the more you devalue the the value of this of this of this word, what is this word, and this is what they are teaching us.
When you say what it means this, it means that look, you don't believe me.
And there's no way I can assure you,
for you to trust me, because you've maybe got some doubts, or whether I'm being honest here or not, in whatever I'm saying,
to make you believe that I am true.
I'm going to bring a witness or someone to back me up
on my only individual, my only being that I can bring to back myself up is Alaska, I haven't even got another human to back myself, I'm going to bring a lot of back myself. That's what it means. That what I'm saying right now, I've got no other backing except for Allah. You know how serious That is, if you using that word lightly, because it means on the Day of Judgment, if allow turns to you and says you use my name for a backing, and you will lie or you are not being absolutely true. You finished my friend, you got a serious economy, the day of judgment to make that's why if you say well law, he and you made a mistake, and you broken also something that we'll learn how to do this
or something and you didn't do it or law, he'll get it. If you if you miss you miss use that word, there are consequences on the earth, you get a fast for three days, you fast for three days as a compensation for misusing this word. That's how serious it is. And if you if you want to read further about this,
you read about this in Surah
Surah Merida, which is Surah number five, and I am number 89. I number 89 that Allah says either if you want to show some kind of explanation for what you just done, then you have to feed 10 Misaki.
Or you have to free a slave or losses from unlimited foreseeable calamity kalithea. If you can't do any of these, then you should fast for three days because you misused an oath. And there are many different types that I want to get into that. But that's one thing. So one thing I want to say from this is that you know that you know this culture of our people just suddenly so one layer one layer one
guy just stopping there and say please don't stop doing that. Stop doing that. First is I should as a Muslim brother not need to use that word like that. If I'm if I'm a Muslim, you're a Muslim, our work should be enough. But we do get into certain cases where you know what, you're in a heated thing. And you think I've got no other witness witness for myself. That's when you use it. And you say, Okay, well, I am telling you this, that lies my backing when you said that be absolutely honest and true about what you're doing. And use it once. If you have to. That's fine. That's enough. That should be powerful enough for you to put your case down. So that's one lesson we get from here. Now
the second thing that we understand from here, what what Yeah.
Okay, so, so so the brothers saying that children sometimes say to others say, Well, I say, well, lions true, you know, you get a lot of children doing that, you know,
and again, if any children are listening to this, you know, don't don't do that. That's not a way of getting dusty. And sometimes you know, what happens? You know, when the children's word Yeah, I've seen this year one chances will lie. So usually I will lie. Now how what have you got to be saying something wrong, man, come on, you can't both say one lie and be both write on an issue that is either going to be right or wrong. Right. And, you know, you can just you can just stand there, just tell him off and tell him what to do this but pleased that this idea that we need to deal with kids that if a person is not being honest, they feel that they're not being honest, or something for them
to stop doing this for them to say, look, you know, are you being honest? Fine, okay.
Like, for example, in my household,
I don't hear this. I don't because we don't have a habit me as, as a father, I don't have a habit of saying to my wife say, Well, I email my wife doesn't say to say well, right? And because of that the children have never picked this up. If they if they have an argument, they'll just they'll just say, Look, I'm telling the truth. And the other one says, Well, I'm telling the truth and that's it. You have to just sit there and decide. But either
To me, I don't get them to say, okay, you save a life. And you say why? Come on? Come on You don't you don't you don't put them into the to that situation. Okay, so the next thing that Yahuwah Salaam is saying, What do you say he's saying that boys, I want you to remember, you've just taken a last name.
And as you go along with Binyamin I want and this is the law basically the next year has come down they're about to leave with the nanny
is as you're about to leave with binyomin I want you to remember that the entire journey that you have taken a last name, that you're going to bring my son back,
meaning that he wants to put a bit of a fright inside them something sad and to remember that look, it's not a it's not a like word that just used and this was to be wary of it for the whole journey. Going there came back then you know what, on the day of judgment, we're gonna have to answer for what we have just said, because the father didn't fully still trust his sons after I mean, who would trust is something that
we want to use sons came back with a shirt said, Hey, we'll miss the bad wolf. He ate this boy of yours. Well, Mr. Wolf was really clever, took all the clothes on my son. And then he, you know, it's a it's a white lie. His dad called them the white lie, but the dads let it go. And dad's been crying for the last good so many years. Every night, he's still crying for his usual.
And then he says to his sons, all sons. Another one thing landed. Holloman bagging white. When you get to the gates of Egypt, and you're about to enter the city, there were basically four different GLAAD gateways to enter the city. So he told his sons, that all 11 of them should not enter one gate at the same time. But they should split up at that moment. Because they described how lost his journey was jacobellis, he never knew any of this. They said, father when he said, How was it this idea when you got this large, four gates and went there. And when you went to one of the gates, he said, Look, this year when you go, I want you to split up. So I want you to be two here, three here,
three here to here, whatever 11 Have you split up 3332. And I want you to go use all four gates to enter. So there's not more than three of you that's entering one gate at a time.
Why am I only on criminal law? himanshi. Now, there's another whole lesson that we learn here. And why is the law saying all of this to us is because he's teaching us massive lessons for our lives? What is that? Why is useful? So I'm suddenly saying to his children, don't you enter from one gate, enter from all four gates and don't all of you 11 of you get through one gate? I want three here three or three or two here. Why?
Because use of Allah is Allah knew that all of his sons were handsome men. That was one handsome individuals. The sons of a prophet alayhi salatu salam, and the wives are jaqua. Salah were very pretty when you get a pretty husband and a pretty wife that you get pretty children. Right? So they were handsome. Usually some of the most handsome out of all of them.
That's one second. Second thing was they were 11 sons of one Father.
When suddenly, I mean, sometimes you kind of come to your family and you kind of see what how many brothers are you five, five brothers? The five brothers.
Imagine you so six brothers. Sometimes you got families, right? six brothers. Wow, six brothers. Imagine you went to a wedding. So seven brothers, or man, a guy, man, you got two hattricks and you got one on top.
Three, three and a one. You might use your eight, eight brothers together. You think man, that guy almost got three hattricks anything that guy's got eight sons, eight sons. Like is that like, you know people have a children that might have four daughters, four sons. Um, but this guy's got eight sons. And you know, sons, we know that between us. sons are the ones that know. Take your seat along for the next generation. The sons are the ones that will stay with you and sons are the ones that you can really rely on to try and do something for you, you know, in your old lady, and so on and so forth. There are many things that white people have bias towards the son, the daughter. I'm not
saying we should have that bias all the time. You know, daughters are as important. But people have this but imagine you see a guy who has 1111 brothers. Wow. You know you'd be using Wow, now, this is how evil it starts.
This is how evil asked us not only 11 Brothers, but they're all handsome.
Young men. They're all good looking. Wow, they're all healthy. They're all good. Wow. That's how evil it takes place. Now, one way and this is a big lesson here, if you want to hide the evil eye, then you do what you're trying to do, which is you break the very factor as going to give the evil eye so he's saying that when you get to the gates of missile I want you to travel separately and to the different doors separately, walk along all the way to the king's palace separate separate in small, small groups. So if anyone ever stops you don't see Oh, there's three brothers here. Oh, there's just three brothers here. Oh, there's another three brothers here but they won't see 11
brothers. So you break it up. You don't make them feed wild about something. So what this means is that guy listen if you got something good year, whatever Allah has given you don't try and make it a thing that you're going to show the whole world what Allah has given you. That's how evolution comes. Subhan Allah Allah Allah live if you got a good house here if you got a good house is good sometimes to have something that is not completely right.
So for example, you got a beautiful house when it comes to the house, you know, you're you know, your driveway. The driveway is there was not done a
good Mashallah. Good good, man. Good. Because when they come to you, the American painting said, Oh, United cipher driver was not good. But even when they enter your house, don't make everything look speaking spam. As if it's a little gentle this earth, people are evil, I will give you straight away. So what you do is, if something happens, like for example, in my kitchen, I've got a tile that's broken.
Because a jar fell from the fridge, wax tray under the tile and crack the crack the tile. And my wife said to me that, you know, should we change that child? I said, No.
I want a child. I want that tile to stay as it is. It's not bothering me. It's not going to cut anyone. But it does look when you look at look at that tile is that tile is broken. It's good. When people come here, they sit down. They say Oh, nice. trunk. Nah, Nah, man. You gotta fix that car, man. And that's good. Because it takes the evil eye away. Insane. So that's the lesson where you get to anything you allow you and you got to don't don't show everyone everything that you've got all the good thing because when people look at it, they will give you the bar now how do you protect yourself from the evil eye? Well, Rasulullah sallallahu has told us that you say if you think when
you see someone with some of the goodness will say barakallahu feek. May Allah bless you with that when somebody says barakallahu fique then you've protected the other person from the evil eye and this isn't the ahaadeeth this is in the Hadith that if you if you if you ask a lot to give Baraka blessings in it, then they won't be evil I so whenever you go to somebody's house, you can say Baraka Luffy May Allah bless you in this Baraka love Even if you don't know my Arabic words, say my love bless you in this that's a good way of making sure that you don't give evil an evil it doesn't have to be with an evil intention. Please remember that evil eye does not have to be with an evil
intention. Evil I simply is when you're just wowed by something. That's it. You can have the best intention you want. Sometimes family members give evil eye to other family members.
Sometimes family members give evil eye to other family members they're not they didn't mean they just wowed by but because you never set the bar low FICO. You never said the Masha Allah La quwata a nebula another way the Quran teaches us to remove evil it is to say Masha Allahu La quwata illa de la in Surah Kahf
whatever Allah has built and only Allah has the power or you can just make it short and say Masha Allah that's what somebody will say just say Masha Allah right? And and that is in a way to show that you know, Allah is the is the magnificent that gave something like this is not because of anyone's doing that you get something like this. Now these are ways of getting the you know, making sure that you don't give the evil eye but if you think that someone got the evil eye and you want to remove it, then you do what Rasulullah sallallahu did, and prophets of Allah Harrison with Hassan and Hussein, he used to every evening he's the go to them. And before they go into sleep or
something he's a he's to have a he had a drought or a lucuma Kalamata hit, Ma, min Cooley shipowning wahama woman kuliah I mean lamb. So I
ask Allah azza wa jal to through the names of Allah azza wa jal, all these names I use all those names to give you protection, both of you projection mean coolly shaytaan Warhammer from every you know, devil that is there every creature that could come and harm you and from every
Evil I'm Emily lamb from every evil I I asked a lot I use a lot, Kalamata his words or his, his, you know the things that Allah has his power to protect you from those evils. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam would blow on them, and use that as a protection for them. And there are many, you know, there are many other ways of getting the evil eye away from somebody, someone I mean, these are the ones I've said that I've mentioned in the Hadith. And, you know, they're very, they're very useful and there's others who have who have found other ways of getting evil is a way and again look to use something that is probably not prescribed in the Hadith as a measure to try and get something
is fine because a lot of scholars they use different ions that are not in a Hadith, not not in a hadith to to look for genes. A lot of lot of scholars use different eyes from Accra, not all the eyes they use are found in a hadith so it's okay for you to use you know to test different ads to see if you can get the thing you want. So one of the things that Allah have tested or some orlimar tested is and I found it quite
useful is if you think there's evil I then you read the last two Ayat of surah column, which is Surah number 68. So we're in the academy Latina cattle I use liquid naka de minimis in ridiculous way akuna inola Magellan Omaha inadequate lol me those two verses, you recite 41 times and you blow you blow. And you do the Rukia through that to remove the evil eye. And even I have used that several times, whether it's children or whether it's your house, or whether it's something else that you think that might be evil hamdulillah you find that the evil eye, you know, isn't there. But this this was primarily the reason why jaquan Islam told his sons not to enter one doorway, but to enter
several doors because he was trying to save them from evil eye. Now just before the event goes, I'm going to spend another two three minutes explaining this. He said then why ma ohanian cuminum why he means Shay. No matter what I take as a means to save myself and save you from the evil I will save you from any harm. I can't do this except if Allah wills in in hookman illa Allah what Allah will will, that will happen in the end. I cannot I'm supposed to still as a human being take up my means to save myself from whatever evil that I see that is coming our way. I like to I put my trust in Allah. See, this is the beauty beauty of this AI is it teaches us that you take your means up first
and then you depend on Allah while he fell
upon him all believers should depend. Now what does this actually what is this actually saying to us? What is he saying to us is like the Sahaba who came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is a measure of Allah.
Should I tie my camel first outside the masjid?
And then depend on Allah? Or should I depend on Allah? And then time I come.
So basically Should I tight first and then say no, I trust you and Allah that you will look after my camel or should I just come and say yeah, I time I come a lot a lot trust you first let me just do two rockets.
bra by the time you don't two rockets. The camel might be in Egypt, you know, I'm saying like, they've kind of gone. So what should I do my Shambala so the purpose of the lesson said air bill Eb lac take your camel and tight first take your means at first and then you put your trust in Allah. So what this means you know certain people on the earth they say oh, something's gone wrong. They say oh no, no we do depend on Allah we depend on lambing blah, blah, blah, man you can make dua that's fine. You can make as much as you want that's fine. But if you don't take your means and try and do something about it, nothing's gonna happen nothing's gonna happen you can't just sit there
like for example it is must you need need some application for an extension? Right? You can't just say please everybody make one Manga Manga Allah gives it Allah gives and you haven't even filled application form yet? What's wrong with you brother? It's like somebody came to the mountains any ma'am please make bla bla I need to get married. inshallah for you to get my so you make profit. I came back after a year. He said. He
said, No, I will be making golf and making that for you. We're all here to get married.
Okay, okay, fine. Have you? Have you been looking for a wife?
You can't not be looking for a wife and make telling any man to make golf. You got to go on the search as well. You know, you can't allow that. You can't think 20 his Christmas is coming down. And then you know, she just comes down your chimney and she says here I am. You know, I want to get married to you. You can't expect her to just walk in your door and say here I am. So you got it.
Take up your means for this. So the whole point of this I'm gonna say a few more inshallah, next time is that the means have to be taken out first and then you take the terracotta law but you still understand that if Allah has put something as a will for it to happen, doesn't matter how much you do, you're not going to be able to save yourself from that, Zach
