00:00:09--> 00:00:34

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Illa Allah al Amin will be in a serene all of a sudden we want to send him why the heart I mean Ambia you are immobile mousseline, Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine Allah Melissa la ma janitor who say hello. Ted Jarrell has an either she Tesla of BSE wala to Assir Waterman Bill fire OB canister in

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

we thank Allah horribleness that you will general for having gathered us here once again. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the mela Inca and to cause his mercy and his Sakina to descend upon us and to raise us with the MBR Allah hemos Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, Amin

00:00:59--> 00:01:19

Yusuf alayhi, Salatu was Salam was a very great Nabhi of Allah subhanahu wa taala. This is a B of Allah subhanahu wa taala was so great in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we find there is an entire Surah named Yusuf.

00:01:21--> 00:01:37

He was betrayed as a young boy by his own blood, his brothers. So they threw him into a well they went back to the Father, father and they lied. They said that he has been eaten by a wolf.

00:01:38--> 00:02:11

And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that use of adding the Salatu was Salam was removed from this well, by some people who were on the way they were moving on the way and they went to draw some water and up came Yusuf alayhi salatu salam. So they sold use of either your salatu salam, as a slave yet he was a free man, yet he was not to be so sold. So they sold him as a slave, he suffered yet again.

00:02:12--> 00:02:34

And then he enters the house of a man who had a beautiful wife and this man was a minister in Egypt at the time they took him to Egypt sold him as a slave. And then he was in the house of the minister. And Allah subhanho wa Taala describes what the wife of this minister did.

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

He says,

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

what their father

00:02:42--> 00:02:42

he says

00:02:44--> 00:02:50

Allah subhanho wa Taala says while our that we Letty was eBUY at

00:02:51--> 00:03:54

Neff see we've gotten that we'll call it hey Turlock and the wife of the one in whose house he was deceived him, she seduced him. She was enticed by this young man. It is said that use of Elena Salatu was Salam was extremely handsome. So this woman looked at him and said, I want to do the deed with him. I want to do the deed with him. So she closed so many doors between them, such that nobody would see them. And she said, Come to me. This was a woman of stature, who was beautiful. And it is said that she actually was enticed by use of alcohol. Salatu was Salam such that she did whatever she could to be alone with him. She bolted up to eight doors, according to some narrations, and use

00:03:54--> 00:04:27

of Heidegger's Salatu was Salam was in a foreign land, unrecognized by others, not known to the community and society. It was so easy for you to say yes, let's do the deed. Now's the time. He was in his youth. He was strong powerful he could have done whatever he wanted, but he said Maura the law in war be synonymous and why in hula you flee? No.

00:04:29--> 00:04:54

He said, the protection of Allah subhanahu wa Tada I seek. I'm not going to do this with you. And he said Indeed, those who are oppressors will never succeed. So he had the fear of Allah subhanahu wa taala within him, so he turned away from this action and Allah subhanahu wa Tada describes to us.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

While Tada haven't met me, maybe her

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

Hola Hola

00:05:03--> 00:05:08

be Gaddy calenus lifan. Who Sue

00:05:11--> 00:06:00

and she inclined towards him and he would have done the same has had he not seen signs of Allah subhanho wa taala. So he knew that Allah subhanahu wa Tada exists, He worshiped Allah Subhana Allah to Allah He recognized ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And this sign of ALLAH SubhanA wa taala. Because of his consciousness of him, it is said that Allah sent him a sign in that room, when he was all alone with that woman, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent him a sign, such that he saw the sign, and he turned away from the woman. Now it is said that the sign was writing on the wall and the sign was this and that, but Allah subhanho wa Taala kept it vague. So we keep it vague as well. My question to myself

00:06:00--> 00:06:52

and yourselves, and this is the lesson that we learn is that if we were placed in such a situation, what would we do? What would we do? Let's sincerely ask ourselves, if I was alone, all alone with a woman of stature beauty, someone that I could commit the act with and gain not only the benefit of that act, but later on, I would gain so much from it, because she would look after me she would perhaps bend on me, etc. I'm in a foreign land, nobody knows me. What would we do? And the reality of the situation is we are left alone with our mobile phones. A lot of the times we are left alone with our mobile phones, a lot of the times only us and Allah subhanho wa Taala only us and our

00:06:52--> 00:07:41

maker, what do we do? What is it that we browse? What is it that we go through? Do we get into our desires? Now's the time to remember how cool is that you will GLL to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala to go and put that phone away and say no, no, no, I won't do it because I am with Allah subhanahu Uttara Allah has not left me even though the eyes of everyone else are away from me. I'm all alone. And the other poet sums it up perfectly. Either. Hello, Tammy reverting to hula Martin. What Neff su De La torriani festa Haman novoline de la ou Aquila. In Alethia, halacha Verma Yanni, that when you are all alone with a doubt, something that perhaps I should do this perhaps I

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

shouldn't do it.

00:07:43--> 00:08:33

Then remember to feel Seamus from the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala over you, he's watching you is nobody sees you but he is watching you and then say that the one who created the darkness that is covering me right now he is the one who sees me. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada gave you the cover of the darkness, the cover of the night, the cover of your room, you being secluded with yourself, tell yourself the one who gave me this cover is watching me. And this is when the Hashem of Allah subhanho wa Taala should kick in that consciousness of Felicity when Jalon that actually protects us from wrongdoing. Yusuf alayhi salatu salam said, Mara, Allah, may the protection of Allah subhanahu

00:08:33--> 00:08:44

Attallah come between me and you. And not only that, he turned around and he ran away from her. He ran towards the door was tethered

00:08:45--> 00:08:51

that Camille saw whom you do, what is IE there had

00:08:53--> 00:08:59

been at Jersey woman, Debbie, Nika sue in

00:09:01--> 00:09:25

the US Jana was early and they raced towards the door she chasing after him and she got hold of his shirt and tore it from behind. She was so much in love with this young boy that she actually tore his shirt from behind trying to get hold of him come back, come back, I want you Allah work.

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

Let us spend a moment here. They are both running in the same direction. But one is running to Allah subhanahu wa Tada and the other one away from Rupal is that you will judge and you see the power of the Hashi of Allah subhanho wa Taala the power of the consciousness of will is that he will general one is running to the Hellfire one is running to the displeasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala the other one running towards Jana, if they are both running in the same direction when you're

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

Heart is with Allah subhanho wa taala. It doesn't matter where you are, it doesn't matter whom you are with. You always bear in mind that I want to please my maker, I'm here to please him. I don't want him to be angry with me. And at this door, they found the master of the house, the husband of this woman, and he was there. So, now the woman is put in a situation. So what does she do? She turns it against use of filing a solid to a seller, mergers.

00:10:37--> 00:10:41

Allah Debbie Lika zoo in

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

Ames, Jana.

00:10:45--> 00:11:23

Ellie, what is the punishment of the one who wants evil with your family? She knew deep down that I'm the one pursuing him. But she turned it against use of Allah in salatu salam, what should we do with this young man he wanted to seduce me he wanted to engage in Haram was me What do we do to him except punish him a painful punishment or we should imprison him for some time. So Allah subhanho wa Taala caused a baby in a cradle that was there to speak up. And this child actually said

00:11:24--> 00:12:18

in Cana, Camille soo good Mia, coleus, Asada to Oahu I mean, I look at the bean while in Ghana, Tommy, you sue them you do all that gather that one who Amina saw the thing, that if his shirt is torn from the front, then she is truthful and he is a liar. Why? Because obviously he was pursuing her so she was trying to defend herself and that shirt is torn from the front. But if the shirt is torn from the back, then she is lying and he is truthful. Allah subhanahu Attallah caused a child from her family to speak up, not from his family, not from his Jamara and his group, but from her family. You see the hunting of Allah subhanho wa Taala holding that consciousness of ALLAH SubhanA

00:12:18--> 00:13:08

wa Tada. Allah puts people from the other side, from your opponent's side to make it clear and manifest. This is who was right. And this is who was wrong. Sometimes people accuse you of something you have done, people blame you for that which you haven't engaged in. Here Allah subhanho wa Taala turned to Allah subhanho wa Taala ask and seek the protection of rubber bullets that you will earn. And in addition to this, stand up and defend yourself, use of filing the salatu salam did not keep quiet. He Allah that Nian FC, she is the one who sought to seduce me. He did what was required of him to defend himself. I didn't do it. She's the one that was after me. And when the master of the

00:13:08--> 00:14:03

house, the wife of the woman, the husband of the woman actually saw that this man is being truthful. Then he turned to his wife and he said, first of all, he addresses use of falaka salatu salam you so for IEOs sin do you use so for Aryan hair that was down Ferrini then Viki in Turkey can t mean Andrew halting use of turn away from this, this is a sin, turn away from it, he advises him, and then he turns to his wife and he says, and seek forgiveness for the sin that you have committed. Indeed, you are from amongst the sinners. You see, he didn't allow his ego to say this is my wife, I need to defend her even when she's wrong. She he acknowledged that she is wrong. She needs to be

00:14:03--> 00:14:50

told that you are wrong. seek forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tada. A lot of times, when we have this opportunity to defend our family members, we defend them regardless of whether they are right or wrong. This is not the correct way. This is not the way of the NBR Allahi wa Salatu was Salam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had uncles who had turned against him, he stood up and said what they are saying is wrong. And this is what we're required to do. Many times you find the child comes back from school, and he's done something wrong. And at times, we even know what he has done is wrong. But what do we do we side with the child against the school or against the principal or

00:14:50--> 00:15:00

against the teacher? Why? Simply because he's my child. How can I do that to him? How can I speak up against him know? Teach him the values of

00:15:00--> 00:15:32

Justice telling him that you are wrong in this case, especially when he is wrong when the child is right there is nothing wrong with defending him. In fact, we should defend the child. And I give this example because a child is a piece of your liver. Literally, that's what the Arabic language describes it as you know, he's a piece of you. So he's close to you. And you find it difficult to say my child is wrong. But what you are doing is you are indoctrinating that child with the wrong belief system, the wrong

00:15:33--> 00:16:12

compass of morality. That child will go on to believe in his life that I am never wrong. I'm always right. Why because the parents instilled in him when he was wrong. No, you defend yourself No, you stand up here. This man was honest, he said was Delphi really them big in and he continued on how to eat, you will from amongst those who are who were sending you were wrong. So turn against on own up to your mistake and seek forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tada. Later on. The women of the city began to blame this woman. They said, you know, that shut off.

00:16:13--> 00:17:08

in Allah and Allah huffy about the movie, she this young man has inflamed her with love. She's infatuated by him, she is enticed by him. So the woman thought to herself, and she invited them to a meal and put some fruit in front of them and gave them knives. And said, use of come into the room enter into the room. So use of alcohol salatu salam enters the room, and these women cut their hands. From the beauty the handsomeness of Yusuf Alayhi Salatu was Salam. They actually cut their hands. They didn't realize what they were doing. This is how handsome Yusuf Alayhi Salatu. Salam was, so this woman wanted to prove to them that look, you are blaming me for something, but look at

00:17:08--> 00:17:53

what you are blaming me for. In fact, they said that this is an angel. These women said this is an angel. This is not Maha Shula in Hansa Illa Malak, this is an angel. That is how handsome use of Allah who salatu salam was, what is the lesson that we do live? Sometimes we judge a person that is sinning, we judge them. And we think that, you know, how can that person do this, that we don't understand the circumstance situation that they are in, she is in a home that is so close to us of Allah, His Salah to a Salah, she's in the same home as him. She sees him day in day out. So she's being enticed by him. Now, I'm not saying what she's doing is right. I'm not saying what she's doing

00:17:53--> 00:18:41

is correct. But we sometimes don't empathize with the sinner simply because we are not in their shoes. So in order to give them the power, in order to invite them, we must place ourselves in their shoes, first and foremost, understand what they are going through. Don't do what they are doing. But imagine if you are in that situation, how you would want someone to correct you how you would want someone to come to you and say this is wrong brother or sister, whatever it may be. So place yourself in the shoes of the sinner and then go out and advise that person. You know, brother, sister, I know that it is difficult. I know it is hard for you to get rid of this at the pleasure of

00:18:41--> 00:19:35

Allah subhanho wa Taala is better for you. Jana is better for you. This is better than going to the person and saying, Hey, what you're doing is haram and you're going to Johanna Allahu Akbar. That's not the way to correct a person. So the lesson that we derive put yourself in the shoes of the Senate, put him in yours in in, put yourself in his situation and understand what he is going through. And then ask yourself how you would want to be corrected and correct him in that manner. Later on. This woman decided in fact, she actually told these women that while in EMEA Salema moolah use Janin. Now what I Hakuna aminos saw the theory that if he is not to do what I am commanding him

00:19:35--> 00:20:00

to do, if he is not to engage with me, I will imprison him. He will be imprisoned for some time. And this is exactly what happened. So she knew what she was doing was wrong. She admitted it to these women of the society and community and now she is brazen and open about us and if he doesn't do it, I will cause for him to be imprisoned when the people will be

00:20:00--> 00:20:49

We get to talk and the community and society was saying this is what's going on. They realized that they needed to imprison use of alayhi salatu salam. Why? Because if we don't imprison him, they will say the wife of the moon doesn't minister is doing wrong. The wife of the Minister is actually trying to seduce this young man. So despite the facts being out there, despite people knowing what was right and what was wrong, they decided to do the wrong thing and imprison us of adding his Salah to a Salah. But this was all part of the protection of Allah subhana wa Tada for use of Allina Salatu was Salam. When he saw that I only have two options here. I either commit the wrongdoing and

00:20:49--> 00:21:11

go with this woman or I am imprisoned Yusuf alayhi salatu salam needed to act to Allah subhanho wa Taala or BCG new arhat Boni la em in Maya their own Annie Elaine, well, tell us the reason Ni k they are also ILA in

00:21:12--> 00:21:52

mineral journey healing, he said that, my lord the prison is more beloved to me than that which they are inviting me to the prison is more beloved to me than that which they are inviting me to. And if you don't turn this away from me, os boo Eli him I will go to them I know myself I'm now at that point where I'm about to do the wrongdoing. Yeah, Allah protect me from it regardless, even if this means I go to the prison and use a valet has Salatu was Salam was protected from Hara by him being imprisoned.

00:21:53--> 00:22:42

And later on, we see that all of this was a journey. And it was a journey that resulted in him being raised to the level of leadership, his name being cleared. His name was completely clear later on in the story of use of Allina salatu salam. The most important lesson that we want to learn from this today is that when you keep ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala in your heart, and you keep him first and foremost, and he is the one that you consider, first in every decision in your life, in every decision in your life, Allah subhanho wa Taala will take you to where you need to go to. Sometimes he may not give you what you want. Obviously use of Allah His salat wa salam did not want to be

00:22:42--> 00:23:32

imprisoned. Nobody wants to be imprisoned. But Allah subhanahu wa taala imprisoned him in order to lay later on, raise him up to the level of leadership. So he was given more than his heart's desire at the end of the day. When you keep Allah subhanahu wa Tada as your first port of call. The first being that you consider in your life, follow the law FATCA when you protect Allah subhanahu wa Tada His commandments, then Allah subhanahu Attallah protects you do this in your life, and it will be the formula of your success not only in this world, but in the earth era as well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to make Allah subhanho wa Taala the first being that we consider in

00:23:32--> 00:23:39

our lives, mein wa sallahu wa salam O Allah Kerala Nabina Muhammad or either early he was off me as you marry
