Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Illa Allah al Amin Wahby Hina Studien also Liana Salim ala ha Tamil Ambia Eva emammal Mursaleen Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine Allahu melesa Elana Jalta who Salah one teta Jalil has either sheets or BS zero Allah to zero attorney Bill here we can stream we thank Allah Bucha is that he will Jellal for having gathered us here today. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the mela ICA and to cause his mercy and his Sakeena to descend upon us and to raise us with the Gambia. Allahi wa Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,

00:00:48--> 00:01:52

use of alayhi salatu salam was thrown into the well. He was taken as a slave yet he wasn't. He was sold as a slave. He went into the house of the Aziz and the wife of the Aziz decided to incite him to invite him towards haram. And the response of use of alayhi salatu salam was murdered Allah, I seek the protection of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. She continued, she persevered. It is said that there were eight doors that she locked between her and the outside the public, her and Yusuf Alayhi Salatu was Salam secluded in one room, and eight doors that are locked and bolted. And then she invited him a woman in her prime, a man in his prime, a woman of beauty, inviting a young man towards that which

00:01:52--> 00:02:44

is displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he says, I seek the refuge of ALLAH Hara bullies that you will Jellal The question is My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, why did he Why did he not succumb to his desire? Because he believed in Allah Hara boulerice that he will general he had enough faith to know that one day I will stand before my maker and I will respond to Allah subhanho wa Taala for my deeds for my actions. You see, environment is not a reason for us to fail. circumstance is not a reason for us to fail. Allah subhanahu wa Tada Had he given this as an excuse to us we would have all failed, we would have all set you know, for this reason, I couldn't do it.

00:02:44--> 00:03:16

For that reason I couldn't do it here use of Allah here. Salatu was Salam. Despite being in the most trying of circumstances. He stands up and says, mas Allah, I seek the refuge of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And she was so intent on getting him that she ran after him. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, was, who and what God did for me for whom you do more you say ye the hell.

00:03:18--> 00:04:13

And she raised him to the door, and she told his shirt from the back, and they found the ICS at the door. Now what happens? The Master knows the master of the house is aware of what is going on. So she says immediately she turns it against use of alayhi salatu salam, he wanted to entice me. He wanted to tempt me. What are you going to do to the one who wants evil with your family? And Allah subhanahu wa taala caused a witness to speak up in Canada come you could damage Cambodia for solder. I've got one who I mean I look at the bean. If his shirt is torn from the front, then she is honest and he is a liar. Why? Because that means that he was after her and she tore his shirt from the

00:04:13--> 00:04:55

front. We're gonna call me you sue God damn you do more together than 211 mean Assad you've been and if his shirt is torn from the back then she is a liar and he is honest, why he was running away from her. Allah subhanho wa Taala created a special witness or made placed a special witness there to bear witness. Some of us didn't say that this was a child. A child in the cradle spoke up and said that this is the criterion this is the the standard of judgment. This is what will let you know who is lying and who is honest. So

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

the ice is realized immediately and he

00:05:00--> 00:05:55

wants to use of Allah salatu salam gives him advice. USofA Ilan was Delphi really though don't be key in looking at me now look halting use of turn away from this and you seek forgiveness for your sin Oh my wife, you've done the seek forgiveness for the sin. Indeed you are from amongst the wrongdoers. Yet she continued, and she said that if he does not do let him let me have Alma Morrow who let us Genin while I Hakuna Mina salary, he will be imprisoned, and he will be from amongst those who are humiliated, her husband knows, yet she continues, and she carries on to try to get use of alayhi salatu salam to do it. What does use of Allah who salatu salam say at this juncture, but

00:05:56--> 00:06:53

bcgeu have boiler here I mean, you had your own and he lay was just really fun, unique I either one or small ILA in our communal healing, Oh, my Lord, the prison is better for me than that which they are calling me to, I'd rather be in prison than that which they are inviting me to. And if you don't turn this away from me, I will end up being from amongst them, I will end up being succumbing to the sin. So Allah subhanho wa Taala caused him to be imprisoned. Now, the point that I want to raise here today is that despite her being found out, she continued to try for him and the response of use of Allah who Salatu was Salam was what his response was that I'd rather be in prison. I'd rather

00:06:53--> 00:07:50

spend some time in prison then succumb to the sin. So Allah subhanho wa taala, tested him by him being thrown into the well taken out of the well and sold as a slave. And then he is tempted by the wife of the house, and he refuses all of this. So if circumstance and situation was an excuse for you to fail, then use of Allah you salatu salam had the best of excuses. He had the best of excuses. But he refused, and he did not succumb to the sin. Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, many of us today, we blame our fathers, we blame our mothers, we blame the circumstance the country is bad situation is not good. So I am failing because of that. We need to understand that as much as

00:07:50--> 00:08:28

circumstance plays a role in our success and failure. It is not an excuse before Allah subhanho wa Taala to succumb to sin. I was sitting I was drinking alcohol because all of my peers were drinking. You cannot say that to Allah subhanahu wa taala on the day of PM, you know, they will come some people. Allah subhanahu wa taala tells us about them in Aladeen at our family mela in Ketu. Well worry me and forcing him on who FEMA can tune on who can step off enough you

00:08:29--> 00:08:35

know, Elena can on Billa USJA, virtual heard you fee.

00:08:37--> 00:09:22

Allah subhanho wa Taala says that in on the day of TM, there will be some people that will come and they would have oppressed themselves committed sin over and over and over again oppress themselves with sin. And the angels will say to them, what were you doing in the dunya? What were you involved in? And you know what the response is, we were oppressed on earth we were from amongst those who are weak. So we followed our leaders we were weak mustafina feel, you know what the response of Allah subhanahu Attallah is, and I'm taking our Bula USJA was the land of Allah subhanho wa Taala not vast for to help you feel so you could run away you could migrate from there, did Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

not create the whole earth for you to migrate in. So that is not an excuse before Allah subhanho wa Taala my environment was bad. I was pushed into these circumstances, it is not an excuse for us to fail at life. And we need to drive this home because we sit with ourselves time and time again. Being human beings we cannot lay blame on ourselves. We cannot point fingers to ourselves. It is difficult for us to say that I failed. So what we do is we point at everything else. The environment

00:10:00--> 00:10:51

is bad, so I failed. The environment is bad. So I ended up committing Zina the environment is bad. So I ended up hooked onto drugs and drinking alcohol. That is not an excuse. Did you not have the ability to move away from that? Did you not have the ability to put the phone down before you commit the sin? Did you not have the ability to put your vape down before you smoke it? Did you not have the ability to give up the drug before you even tried it? Did you not have the ability to walk out of the pub and say, This is not what I do? I'm a Muslim. I am a believer in Allah subhanho wa taala. Remember Yusuf Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And how he responded, Ibrahim Al Khalil, the friend of Allah

00:10:51--> 00:11:36

subhanho wa taala. Another prime example for us to take note from, he's there, and his father, and all of them are worshipping the idols and he realizes that what they are doing is wrong. So he looks at the moon, and he thinks that that perhaps is his Lord, and then he looks at the sun, and he realizes that all of these disappear, and he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala and tells his father, that what you are doing is wrong. Turn away from it, give it up worship, the One who created the heavens and the earth. This is the Nabhi of Allah subhanho wa Taala why are these Ambia Allah hemos Salatu was Salam there, why are there stories mentioned in the Quran for you and I to take heat for

00:11:36--> 00:12:33

you and I to learn from for you and I to understand that Allah subhanahu Attallah has given us a choice. And that choice is ours to make the day that we choose it is our choice and that is why Allah subhanahu Attallah will punish the wrongdoers because they chose wrong, disbelief and evil for themselves. So the message is simple. And this is something that we can actually learn from, we need to understand that Allah Allah will is that you will July has created us, placed us on Earth and gave us a choice. And sometimes you know, people say that I'm in my family, and my family refuses for me to wear hijab. My family wants me to party my family wants me to engage in alcohol and to do

00:12:34--> 00:13:19

X, Y and Zed What do I do? At that juncture, we say give up my great with your mind and your thoughts and your feelings. Walk away from that situation. If they are in the lounge doing that which they are doing walk to your room, leave. Go spend some time alone. Why? Because that is your evidence with Allah subhanahu Attallah Yeah, Allah, you placed me in this family, but I am going to stay strong. I am going to earn a reward from this trying circumstance. This trying situation. When you have people speaking bad and evil, it is difficult for you to stand up it will be disrespectful. Perhaps they are older than you. They are saying bad things about other people. Make Hegira with

00:13:19--> 00:14:09

your mind and your thoughts and your emotions be with Allah subhanahu wa taala remember Allah in that gathering, and that is your hijra, that is your migration, you were physically bound, but you were mentally emotionally free to turn to Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is why even when a gun is placed to someone's head and he is told, give up your faith, he is allowed to say Kelly Mattel Cofer. He is allowed to say I'm a disbeliever but believe in his heart, and that doesn't take him out of Islam, because he makes Hegira he migrates from that evil thought within his heart. Nobody can control your thoughts. Nobody can control your mind. Nobody can control your heart. So at least

00:14:09--> 00:14:26

that much you have an excuse with Allah subhanho wa Taala Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to grant us the ability to make Hegira from that which is evil and move to that which is halal and good while through the Awana and in hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen
