we continue with the
higher aims or the objectives these the seal of surah Yusuf
and today inshallah
we have the higher aim that a Muslim, a believer must place his trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah has a plan for you.
And for you to discover this plan and understand the wisdom you have to be patient. Why this plan in particular, you have to be simply patient.
we spoke about three chapters, right here, chapter number 1011 and 12.
Eunice is number 11. I'm sorry, number 10. Who is number 11. And Yousuf is number 12.
These three chapters has been named after three prophets
use the biblical name is Jonah, Jonah, and we'll
The one who ended up in the belly of the whale,
who is a messenger who was sent to
the people of Iraq who used to live in the Arabian Peninsula and they worship the idols
and use of the son of Jacob
who is also known by Israel. Actually in the Quran.
It was mentioned why is that yaku Jacob's name is Israel
in Surah, Allah and Ron and also in Surah, Maria
and Joseph is one of his children.
Now, these three chapters
They were revealed
almost at the same time
during the eve of sorrow, and right before the hijra,
their order of revelation is
5152 53. Imagine that
um Subhana Allah,
Allah subhana wa tada instructed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to boot them in the same order in the Masai 10 1112.
We understand so far that the Quran has two orders, order of revelation and order of the Muslims, those are two different orders.
And both of them are instructions from Allah subhana wa.
And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam left the order of the Mazel Tov to us. And we were instructed to place Jonah Yunus number 10, which we explained two weeks ago, hood number 11, which we explained last week, and today we're explaining surah, number 12.
Now, these three chapters,
dealt with an oppressed community, and a grieving leader, as simple as that.
We know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam experienced three major
events or incidents, which
greatly affected him. Number one, the death of his wife had deja
he lost that comfort, that home comfort. You know, you're coming home to a wife who takes care of you and will comfort you. And we know how hard he was loving and comforting to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
Right after the death of Khadija, the death of his uncle, Abu Todd,
who used to be the leader of his own tribe, then he Hashem
and the Arabs at this time, they used to have a law called the law of protection. Very similar to what we call now asylum.
That you come from a country because you're oppressed. And you see a refugee status like a lot of people come to the United States under that status. Likewise, the law of protection is like that. So I will declare that if someone lays a hand on my nephew, all of my tribe are at war with him.
Now with his death with Abu Talib death, who became the leader, another uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but someone who hated Islam, and hated the prophet and hated the whole. He was so islamophobe His name is
Abdullah Abdullah, he became the leader, the chief of the tribe.
And this is what led the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Germany, almost 100 kilos, kilometers, I don't know, around 70 miles to the neighboring town, trying to find protection, they're alive. But yet, he came back with a disappointment.
You know, how the people treated him.
So imagine this is the condition of the leader.
What about the Muslims, the followers, some of them ran away to the Christian land in the senior nowadays pulled a phobia and the Christian King Lear giving them protection nagus who later on became a Muslim himself, and those who are left over in Mecca, whether they are being chastised or persecuted or going through hardship. Now, when you go through that state, that condition
you are inclined to develop
three counterproductive characters. Number one, the speed
number two, given compromise
number three, react with aggression.
Imagine each one of these chapters came to address one of these counterproductive characters and to promote the opposite of it.
What was the issue of Jonas?
What was the issue of john
Why Gianna ended up in the depths of the sea?
Inside the belly of the whale? If you read his story carefully, Allah subhana wa Taala sent him to call his people to monotheism that people would not listen to him.
He said you know what, these guys are worthless, I'm leaving you I'm quitting.
he left without Allah His
permission. That is why so allies telling us you can do that and that is why you find that number false Believe me Rob big
girl saw a bill Lu T.
P patient Allah stealing the prophets, Allah Salah, t patient and don't be like the Companion of the wheel.
When he found himself inside the belly of the wheel
and chapter you lose and we explained that we spent enough time there. It tells us that at the end of the day, Allah is the one who guides you don't guide people
you know, don't think that you get people to believe in Islam know Allah Subhana Allah is the one who chooses to turn their hearts on or off.
Now what is my job and your job is to work to share the message that's all you share the message and let them decide that's all if Allah wills they will believe
if this is the deal, why do you quit? or Why do you give up?
If this is your understanding that you must address this and I will not spend a lot of time there then came who
who was about not because you're oppressed not because you're weak that you compromise your beliefs
and again yet when we say this in the language that tolerance in interacting with people
but nothing compromising your beliefs, not because you're weak then you go and jump in there and say, okay, you know, you know what these idols you worship, I'm okay with them.
I'll adopt your lifestyle. No, don't do them. One token Illa Levine, avalable Fatima soco Mona
don't even inclined to their way because at the end of the day,
we are the last nation sent to mankind with monotheism. And if we give in
who's gonna preach monotheism to mankind.
People started worshipping created beings, Christians, with all due respect the Christian worship Jesus, Jesus was born, he was created. The people in India are worshipping the cow, and they worship multiple gods. So he will show who's going to preach the hate monotheism to people if you condone their way. But again, be careful that this there is a difference between condoning and being mean.
You see, like I said, what you have in your heart of faith is between you and Allah subhana wa Taala. But you treating people who do not adopt your faith, you have to be nice. You have to be polite, and you have to be just unfair. And that's what?
No, I'm sorry, you who came.
We come to our chapter today.
And this is a big issue. That because you're oppressed, because you're going through Islamophobia, then you react with aggression.
You go and attack people who did not inflict harm on you.
Unfortunately, like some weird Muslims do.
And this is totally against the teachings of Islam.
Use of that chapter of Joseph came to show you that during the time, as a matter of fact, if you endure patience, and if you are steadfast.
And if you develop that good character, even during that time, imagine that people are oppressing you and you're nice, and you're kind.
This is what they say in Christianity sometimes. And I don't know if Jesus ever said that or not but a common if they slap you here, what do you do
that attitude during the time?
Listen, Islam is not a passive religion either. Let's not lie to ourselves. But when you
You're strong, then face it.
But right now you're weak. What are you going to do?
And I always say, FYI, the pact,
the story of Moses moosari of salatu salam.
Musa knew that he's a Muslim. He is Israeli is not a description, even though he was brought up in the house of the field. But when he went into town, and he found another Muslim, another Israeli fighting with an Egyptian.
So he came to his help.
Accidentally, what did he end up doing?
He killed him.
Thought he didn't mean that.
We call this accidental death
The following day,
who says walking in town again, and he found that Muslim again. Man, you're getting us in trouble every day. What are you doing?
You don't do that.
You don't do that.
This is the historical background of use of and I'm going to jump through because we explained this last two lectures all of that stuff, we explained it, I have to put it here for my little book inshallah. But here is the higher aim of soret use of thrust Allah has planned.
If and if you do that, then you should be what
if your trust allies plan, then you should be what? You should be patient.
You shouldn't panic.
Ready. My time hasn't stopped by 45 minutes has stopped now.
All of this, I'm trying to be the way to it. I'm going to repeat some of the things which I have set. Like we indicated earlier that chapter use of
gem use of is the Arabic version of Joseph. So if you hit loose of Joseph is identical. Yeah.
was revealed two to three years
After the year, which the scholars of Sierra Sierra is an Arabic word, which refers to the biography of the Prophet that 23 years and some people add the previous years, the 40 years before that.
They call it the heel of sorrow or the scale.
This year was a sad time for the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He was going through several hardships. And three of those are the most significant.
The death of his wife had ECOMOG explained a minute ago, the death of his uncle and the loss of the protection with that,
and the disappointment at the table of thought, when they expelled him and they harassed him. And they physically and psychologically abused him sallallahu wasallam
at this stage, by the way, you look at this now, koresh actually started deliberating the three options.
Price means the people of Mecca gym, the people who live in Mecca, the people who are opposing the message of Islam in the town where the Prophet initially started in schools Mecca. So they started deliberating What should we do with this man? Whether we kill him whether we imprison him or whether we expel him and this was mentioned and so Rahul unfair What if the young lady in
the to Jaco Toluca,
why am guru now I am
one love for you?
And remember when the disbelievers plotted against you or Mohamed to do what imprison you, kill you, or to get you out of town to expel you actually, to a place of the lightning, even though the Prophet migrated but the Prophet migrated to a place they hate. Medina at least they hate. They hate it most because it was in their way of trading when Karuna Lam Koroma look with the use of the surah Yusuf comes in handy. Look at this. Look. The same thing the brothers of us have had a meeting to blowups what to do with him
hoo boo Isla
wanna know Spa in
So the 11 brothers abusive, or the 10, I'm sorry, 10 brothers that are 10 and then Binyamin, and those are half brothers, and the two are full brothers, you should have had another brother fool. From father mother called Benjamin. So use offended me. And in the other hand, the 10 brothers, the 10 brothers had a meeting and they said, use of and his brother are more beloved to our father than us. That's not fair,
otaku, so kill us.
I will Torah who
are cast him out to some other land, the same exact marking the disbelievers. What
are the Quran keen to treat What?
Likewise, you have to apply the Quran to our life now, you know, this is the time when we have to reflect that's how you deliberate, you know ponder upon the Quran. That what happened at the end,
as if that chapter
of us is warning the people of Christ that he will have McKee by applying the example of use of brothers to their case.
As you're behaving towards the Prophet, exactly in the same way, the brothers of usual
behave towards him. Therefore, you should expect to meet with the same in.
So in a way, the surah that chapter was a spiritual lift, or uplifting spiritually to the prophet SAW Selim. Look, because you need to understand that people have Mecca they used to lineage they used to be family, that's our fabric family, the people, some big family, to the show, they are doing this to their own brother, Mohammed, they're his own brother, Abu lahab. That's his nephew.
So though, as if Allah subhana wa Taala is killing the prophet and said, Look, listen, you're not the only one here. Joe Yusuf Alayhi. Salatu was salam, his own brothers did the same thing.
And they ended up actually that thing worked.
But at the end, look. So the chapter was meant to uplift the Prophet spirit and comfort him and his followers, stating that, if you trust Allah has blessed and stay patient and steadfast, Allah subhanho wa Taala will make you victorious at the end.
Add to this, and this is very interesting, by the way, the story of use of and his brothers was one of the boys that never heard of immaculate, some of you may not hear this.
may hear this for the first time. And it's true that people do the new who's used often that you will not get a they were a little more of a mood than and that's, that's why Allah subhana wa tada always emphasizes, but
that story, you know,
that story No.
And the people in Mecca as well, they still somehow somewhat skeptical regarding the profits profit who they are actually questioning, you know, whether he is really a prophet or is because they are not familiar with this. So Subhana Allah, the revelation of this verse, I'm sorry, the revelation of this chapter. And this is the only chapter in the Quran where you read a story from A to Z.
Look at any other story in the Quran, bits and pieces, clips, a clip, and then another chapter, another clip another. But this is the only chapter in the Quran, where you read it. And it's one block one story.
And amazing The story is mentioned in the Old Testament in the book of Genesis, I believe I'm not mistaken. And very, very young, any minor discrepancies between the two.
It's very interesting.
Here is the story of use of embryo because we're going to build on this use of is one of the children of Yahoo, like I mentioned a minute ago. Another name for Yaqoob is Israel.
And that's one of the most awful things that you know,
when politics can cause you to, to, to have ill feelings towards
you know, profits.
You know, they always had us hate that word Israel. I mean, when we come from an Egypt for years, you know that Israel is bad. Israel is bad, of course because of the war.
You know, between and later on, you find out that Israel is, is Yaqoob is Jake, somebody that you're supposed to love and honor and but of course, you know, that's where things get mixed up.
He had that talent, Allah subhanho wa Taala wouldn't call it a talent but the ability to interpret dreams. One day Yusuf has or had a dream. And he narrated that dream to his father who immediately knew that Yousuf will be a prophet. His father saw that his half brothers are already envious,
jealous of him,
not only because of the way that Jacob treated us and his brother because also he was given that physical beauty, he was a very good looking man.
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said about Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, that he was given half of the beauty of the creations
imagine this half
of the beauty of the creations. That's why when he entered into the Egyptian ladies,
Egyptian ladies, what did they do to their hands, they cut their hands and they said this is not a human, this is an angel.
We'll come to that later inshallah.
However, because of your loving treatment towards Yousuf
his brothers became very jealous. They wanted to get rid of us so their father could love them instead of us of
their initial plan was to kill us, but later they decided to throw him in a will.
They lie to the Father and told him that a wolf had killed him. Later a caravan rescued us from the wheel.
Who then sold him to a man in Egypt.
Okay, sorry, online.
Later demands so the man took use of in and was hoping to have him as a son because he didn't have children.
Later the man's wife tries to seduce use of but he resists the women. The women want women, the lady and seeing his resistance accused us of wanting to harm her, and demanded her husband, to punish him severely or to jail him.
And when Egyptian women want something I tell you is going to happen.
I can tell you that use of force sent to jail.
In the prison, and these are Subhanallah, the verses which we recited tonight in the first Raka. And then the prayers, we decided that encounter with the two inmates use have met two other men.
These two men used to work for the king.
And they were accused, not yet proven guilty of conspiring to poison the king,
the Butler and the baker,
the one who used to be food, bread for the king, and the one who used to squeeze the grapes to make wine for the king. Both of them they were accused of a conspiracy to poison the king. So they placed them in jail under investigation, and that's how they ended up with us.
of course, he interpreted the dreams to them. The prisoner is then released and use of as the prisoner to mention his talent. One of them of course, of course was proven guilty the baker, he was he used to be hanged, but the butler the Batman,
Batman or something like that. Yeah, the one who used to serve the he was saved and he said please mentioned my skill to the king.
One day the king had a dream. And the prisoners, the prisoner the one there is a typo there who had been released, mentioned use of that he can help you with that dream because his
Shura his counsel could not help him. They told him these are nightmares. Don't worry about it.
Use of insulin interrupted the King's dream, which is about Egypt having a seven year of drought seven years of drought to reward him
The King requests his release from jail. And the king also investigated his case again. Finally, he was proven to be innocent. The wife actually admitted that testified that he was innocent Yousuf was given authority in Egypt
during the seven years of drought use of his brothers visit Egypt to get food for their family.
So they came all the way from where
what what is Jacob By the way, we're
in Kanan at the time, which is Palestine.
He came to Egypt.
When they arrived, one thing provision for the family, they saw us. They didn't recognize him. But he recognized them.
Yusef recognizes them.
They did not recognize him. Yousuf in a high position of authority requests that the next trip they come, they have to bring the youngest brother Benjamin,
they have to bring Binyamin or Benjamin with them.
When the brothers returned with their youngest brother, Yusuf takes him aside and tells him that annual brother use
use of bloods a theft case where his youngest brother is found guilty of theft, when he is truly innocent. And he detained him.
So that later on the brothers would come back
after facing poverty,
and at this time, they find out that use of actually is alive. And he is that high ranking officer in Egypt.
Now let's look at something here. The moon, the main point here is to apply
is to warn the quraishi
that the conflict between them and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the end in his victory
as they were then persecuting their brother, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the same way, the brothers of use of
treated the use of
the Quran were told indirectly that they would also fail in their evil designs. And the blotting just as the brothers of us who had failed in their case, in his case, even after casting him into the will, this is because none has the power to defeat the divine will of Allah.
You're getting that that's really a huge message that you have to get.
It's very similarly
to the pharaoh killing all the newborn.
All the newborn in order to kill one child who
who loses, right. So he's after who Moses.
Guess he ends up raising up Moses.
So Allah sins Moosa, Allah Salatu, salam, the baby, the infant, to his madness, and he tells him you want to feed him, you will not provide him, you're gonna raise him up for me.
And something else why I really need to bring your attention here. It's extremely important.
And I'm talking to the young ones.
Why did you sort of have to go through this before he actually comes out to start talking to the people about monotheism about the heat?
Why Moosa was brought to the balance of the field
before he is sent to them
because for you to call a nation to Islam, to let people know about Islam, you must know who are those people
elaborate? Tony me the obey Allah. We have not sent a messenger before you obey Mohammed, but with the tongue of the people and don't think the tongue here means the language. No, the tongue is the understanding the culture.
For you to be effective caller to Islam in America, you should know who Americans are.
What they their lifestyle is like, I'm not asking you to live that lifestyle.
All adopted No, but you should be aware of what of what they do. That is why, you know, we struggle, I have an accent, I came as an immigrant, I'm doing my best. But the hope here in America that we can better the image of Islam
is in the next generation.
And the next generation that because they speak the language, you know, they they understand they were brought up here. And they realize, and this is why you should have went through this. And that's one of the lessons that we learn a lot of nuts in him just like that, from Canaan, from Palestine to Egypt call people to Islam. No, that's not the case here. That's extremely important.
And just as the brothers of us who had looked at this as well, and this is the great connection here, had to humble themselves before him.
Remember, one day, the brothers refused, when they came back, they had no price, they had no use of established a load that for you to get a provision, you have to bring any object from your house, bring your couch, bring your chair, bring your carpet, anything, not necessarily money.
Why? Because if it's for free, that people are gonna come and waste what
the provision because this provision is supposed to be sufficient for seven years. So he said to them, Listen, for you to receive a provision, you have to bring up something from your house. So they didn't have anything at the time. So when they came back to me, he asked them, Do you know what you have done to us to find his brother?
While you're ignorant?
They immediately said to him, You are useless. Because no one knows what we don't use. accept us. Yeah, we lie to our father. We made up a story. But no one knows about this, you must be useful, especially in Egypt, no one knows about this. You must be useless. This is Joseph and this is my brother,
Benjamin. Allah has blessed us. What did they do at the end? Can you please forgive us a
look at this now?
The fact is that by applying this with undeath
hardly two years had passed. Look at the second bullet, I'm sorry.
After the revolution of this chapter, the quraishi conspired to kill the profits of salah
and he had to emigrate to MK from Mecca to Medina I'm sorry. He gained same kind of power like prophet us. He became the ruler in Medina. right he became the head of what?
Of the city in Medina. Right.
And then what happened later?
Again, at the end, the Qureshi had to humble themselves before him just as the brothers have used.
And so panela the Prophet mentioned this when he came back marching with 10,000
soldiers army marching into Mecca, hammering Mecca.
He said to them, what do you think I'm gonna do to you?
I'm in power now in control. Now. What do you think I'm going to do to you? What do you expect me to do to you? They said, You run over
a home, Corinne, your honorable brother, Bob.
McCarthy said, I will kill you what you should have said to his brothers
are kulula Poom gamma cada Yusuf Ali, what he I'm going to tell you exactly what you should say to his brothers go you forgive him.
You see the connection here.
And it happened.
The same story of mercy was repeated when after the conquest of Mecca.
The crest fallen, for I stood meekly be before the prophets or seller who had full power
to wreak his vengeance on them.
For each cruelty committed by them,
but in state, he asked them what treatment Do you expect from me? They replied, You are a generous, noble brother, the son of a generous noble brother. At this, he very generously forgive them and he said, I will give you the same answer, which Yusuf gave to his brothers. no penalty shall be inflicted on you
You are forgiving. You see the connection
periods were beauty when you connect the Quran with the with the time when it was revealed, because this becomes the criteria to connect it to your time
you're getting it if you read the criteria of the time, right now actually we're going through that time the time of weakness operation.
Okay, let's get to business here. What is my time? I'm doing okay with time.
No, it's still 40 minutes Come on. And remember that 10 minutes no 35
Yeah, I still have another 20 minutes my mood, that's not nice.
Come on. There are four main subjects in this chapter.
Like I said, the chapter focuses mainly on the story of use of
sipan Allah His name was mentioned 65 times in this chapter, only two times in the rest of the Quran.
Anyone knows what source whoever says that is going to get
and I am and the
only two sources in the Quran.
The chapter can be divided into four parts, profit use of childhood, profit use of youth profit use of as a king or ruler. And finally, lessons and admonitions from the story, the story is not there to entertain you. The story is the to learn something from it.
So I'm gonna rush through these because I can explain this.
If you want to visit this beautiful one to 21 that's profit use of childhood.
Profit use of season three. It's very similar to things that I've done.
But I want to take you to the
something very interesting here.
Let me go here.
to go back.
I want you to reflect upon verse number 21.
This is the verse when Yusuf alayhi salatu salam
was brought to the slave market in Egypt. And he stood like a slave in cheese.
And then the Aziz the governor, came and choose to buy him and he took his home. Take, he took us home to his wife. And he said to him, treat him honorably.
We may adopt him.
Then I want you to look at this. Here it is. And he The Man from Egypt, who bought him
walk all these
new serani marotti a creamy mouthwash.
A creamy mouthwash was a foreign owner
and the man the government from Egypt he said to his wife, make his stay comfortable.
May be he will profit us or we shall adopt him as a son.
Then here's what I'm looking for and pay attention to this please wake up wake up. Allah subhana wa Taala commence on this by saying between the quotes do thus thus. Look at this does you guys see the bus there? Thus, we establish use of Wonderland
is something that you should think about. Establish who
imagine one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What is your central Buhari he asked his companions who is the most noble of all people, men acraman ness.
So the companions under answered by saying what's in the Quran inac Rama Kuma en de la he at Coco.
The best of you in the sight of Allah are those who harbored the consciousness of Allah in their hearts.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I'm not asking
Then he said, A Cronus, the most noble of all people. Look at this now and will carry the most noble,
the Son of the Most Noble, the Son of the Most Noble, the Son of the Most Noble
Jews, Joseph, the son of Israel, Jacob, the son of Isaac,
the son of Abraham,
can you have a lineage like that?
You're a prophet, your father is a prophet, your grandfather is a prophet, you grand grand, grand father is a prophet.
He became asleep.
He lost his freedom.
Not only this, we talked a minute ago about how beautiful he was, how good looking. As a young man, he became asleep. So I'm asking you, where is the empowerment here?
I am keen, hoonah.
Allah said, thus we established him in the land, where is the establishment, he was a free man, he became a slave. He was living with his family in Canaan. He's a stranger in a town. Where is the empowerment
in order the empowerment is
allows his loved him.
And for you, to be empowered in earth.
You must be empowered in the hearts first.
You will never easy you may force people to obey you.
hacking dissemination, while hacking responsible power
if you don't
why the profits are the messengers, and the schoolers are called magicians or disguise magician, why musician because they capture what
the halls they stoned the halls, they get to the heart.
For Allah Subhana, Allah is telling us,
for you to become a leader like us later on that, that that same statement was repeated at verse 56. And I'm gonna come to it. And I'm gonna remind you of it, that Allah repeated the same exact thing again, but actually when he became a ruler,
but Allah is telling you that for you to be empowered in the land, without force without power.
Without Violence, you have to be empowered in the hearts first. And the only way you're gonna do this is through your character.
By having a good character, honest, telling the truth.
Let go, people don't, don't cling, you have to be you have to develop that character.
That's extremely important. But the story ends here where he became into this palace, let's go to his youth. Again, I'm running rushing through this because I'm relying the irs.gov just 22 to 57 that's his his youth.
Of course, this governor said to his wife, you know, you should say that to your wife, you know, he bring him you bring in somebody into your house. You know, and somebody with the beauty of this man, and Annie tell your wife make him comfortable?
I mean, what nobody does that I mean, I mean, I know that we live in a weird world now but nobody does that. I mean, come on, be careful here. I mean, and that's where the danger of of the adoption somebody who and he adopts a child gives his name and Okay, you're part of the family you you're with the law doesn't go this way. Those are different.
There is a line that must be drawn here. But any rate,
the lady falling in love with us.
can blame her. He's of extremely good looking.
But Yusuf Subhana Allah, maybe we need I mean, these are beautiful verses use of grow up to be a very handsome young man, so much so that the wife of the governor fell in love with him. She was so enticed by him that she tried to seduce him
into committing an evil act, which is adultery. She dismissed her servants and lock the doors were unlocked at
all if I did something very interesting that there are 15 excuses for use of to commit adultery that day. 15 excuses he's a stranger. He's a slave.
She's the one who's asking, he is the slave she is the mistress.
But yet, he didn't do it. When prophet Yusuf realized the intention, he found no way out. So he sought refuge in Allah. And that's it for the beauty por la la.
Is it the only one who can save me from this is Allah subhanaw taala. And that's why you hear what Allah has commanded us not to come near adultery. Don't go and sit with a woman in a closed room, you know, and and flirt with her and say, No, I'm not gonna do it. That's too late. You don't do that.
When he reads the doors, and open them al Aziz was standing there at the point she being caught in this situation, made it out as if profit use of had been the one who tried to seduce her, and even worse, attack her.
There were no witnesses, but our eyes relative of the wives suggested that if the shirt is tuned from behind, then prophet Yusuf Ali Salam is innocent because she's grabbing him.
And he's running away. But if the shirt is stolen from the front, obviously is trying to attack her. And she's trying to defend herself. When the as he saw that the shift is torn from behind her.
He found himself in that last last situation. His wife was lying, his honor at stake his reputation.

If he let go views of his name is going to be won.
At the end, profit use of Jani, the wife of Phil Aziz, somehow because the rumor going around Jani so far has not decided what to do with the issue but the rumor have gone out.
So imagine all the women in Egypt started talking about

All the all that the high ranking ladies in the society, not just any lady,
whether they're one of the people who will be seated under the throne, and
one of them is what?
There are two in Morocco there two months even with a man, a woman who was asked by a woman who is prestigious, she is high rank in the community. She's a somebody. She's not just a woman, and she's beautiful. And he said, I feel Allah, fornication, adultery is haram. I can do that. In the
use of the example.
Allah accepted his law.
And the women eventually gave up pursuing him. The Aziz and his advisors thought the best way to end this scam
was to remove us from the scene. So they imprisoned him. This also made it look to the general public as if he was the guilty party. Of course they jailed him. Now he's jailed over what
is an innocent man he didn't do anything. Profit use of it Salama, imprisoned, along with two servants of the king. Like I said a minute ago Elijah who conspired One of them was actually accused of conspiracy to poison the king. The baker and the Battle of
ilhabela will be a baby. He offers the drinks
each one of them so Audrey
the bottle of saw himself squeezing grapes.
And the baker saw himself carrying a basket of bread on his head, but the birds would come and eat of it.
So they said to us, man, you look different. You're not like these inmates here. There were other inmates but they came to him
because he's sitting out there patient you know, he's not sitting out there and crying. Or
like, you know they did. They did you know?
What are you gonna do?
Why did this happen to me why this is why I haven't tried it is sitting there breathing and you know, patience.
said man, you look different.
And that's a for the attraction of that hour. That's the first thing that attract you to make that is, is the character.
lie I tell you, the most successful people in calling people to Islam are the professionals. The doctor, the engineer, but people who practice Islam and they are good with their job, they are honest.
They show him different. Imagine he utilized the opportunity and said you know what, I'm going to tell you the interpretation of a set First of all, that is not the only thing I have of skills by the way i can tell you the type of food you will receive.
And by the way, I'm not look at this look at look at this now. This is not because of me. Who gave this to me that you Kuma you can be like me.
This is what Allah has told me that he is calling people to Islam.
who I am, I left the way of those people. You guys are worshipping idols here worshipping these rocks.
I followed away from my father Isaac is how Jacob, Abraham Ibrahim, we never associated anyone in worship with Allah.
And then he said to the Butler, you will be released. And he said to the baker, you will be hand
and he said to the Butler, please. Can you talk to the king about my case?
You can do that. wahala lady one and na hoona Jemima, Courtney and Dora.
And if Courtney and Arabic for unselfish Shay upon or the koala be Farah be surface Sydney potassium.
It is the copier would become a believer and he would make him honest person would.
So this is the
now the king so adrene seven healthy cows are eating by seven sick ones. And seven years of grain are being devoured by seven dried ones.
He asked the people around him What is the interest rate nightmares. So the butler was going around and serving them right? So the butler is going around he's not part of the conversation. But he saw the response of his Council.
Then he came to the thing and said I can help you with that dream. I remember this guy in jail
we saw a dream and he interpreted for us and it was identical
so he goes to jail use
the king so this dream imaginary use of did not bargain. That's a character or law here for if I sit here and I don't want to get because that's that would defeat the purpose of our series What? Higher aims not to go every but every verse is a story. Use of user did not say you know what, guys? He killed me. I'm innocent man. I'm not coming out until until you guys do this. He said, Listen,
your country is gonna ride away. Or either way. He told him what Egypt will experience and he told him the solution.
He didn't bargain on this. That's a character. That's a character. You know
When you do good you do good for Allah not to get something out there on the side. kickbacks, you don't do that. As a matter of fact, when the king received the interpretation of use of he sent a messenger back to him,
get this guy out, bring him out.
You know what you said no, I'm not coming out until you investigate my case again.
Fela Maria Rasul Allah, Allah because Allah Houma la luna, so why, why why uses did this because it was gonna come out, he's gonna come out to call people to Islam, to call people to monotheism to Allah. Would you like to be calling people to monotheism? When you are
a legend for nicator?
Would you like to do that when that people know about you that you're a woman guy?
So imagine you come and talk to people about Laila. Isn't that the guy? He went with the Egyptian women out there? Right? No, clear my record first.
Before I come out, I'm not coming out for the magic. When the messenger came to call out, a lot of the social selling, by the way, commented on this, he said, If I would have stayed in jail, the same time use of Jews have stayed in jail, I would have answered the messenger that Imagine you're having a royal release. Imagine the king is releasing you from jail.
And you refuse Why? To clear your records. Because a person who goes to Allah should not be accused of because these things will turn people away from what from what you're calling people to share with you.
Again, yes, well, later on use was given that power again. Remember that verse? Let's reflect on that verse. Look at 56 what was the other verse 21.
Thus did we give full authority to use in the land? What can daddy cannot cannot use, but this is the actual authority, right?
The first one was what
was not he was
as if the message for you to get empowered, established, you must win the hearts and souls of people. And the only way you do this through your character, and that's what you did in shop, I want to rush through this. His last stage is being a king. Of course, the story is fabulous, just read from 58 to one on one.
You know, basically his brothers came, then he conspired to keep his full brother.
And at the end, Jacob came and the whole family and I'm gonna rush through this inshallah, I'm going to give you the luxury of reading this later on. But let's go to the last part of the
and this is the key here, lessons and admonitions, there are
almost a nine verses out of this world at the end of sort of useless they are not part of the story the story ends at one stage. But
out of this world,
the Quran does not relate stories, just for entertainment. No, it actually propagate a certain message and this is the last verse in the chapter la karateka fee pazhassi him a beratan li Julio,
maca, ha de la
tasa de la de de watashi la coolish a wahoo Damara, mutton, a pony min moon, indeed in the storage of the prophets, and that he will be for us there is a lesson for men of understanding.
The Quran is not forced, therefore,
rather it's a confirmation of Allah has existing books that are
that the Old Testament, the Injeel, the gospel, the book that was given to Prophet Isa Jesus peace be upon him, and a detailed explanation of this.
So let's learn some lessons. Lesson number one.
This is the ideal place to understand the difference between absolute evil and a purposeful evil.
we know that Allah already wrote what we will do.
And he knows about it. He knows it. He wrote it. He created us to make it happen. Correct. This is what we call one cutter.
Now a lot of the people question, why does Allah allow bad things to happen?
We have two types of evil, absolute evil. What is an absolute evil, zero good will come out of it.
Only human can do this.
But the time of evil Allah subhana wa Taala pyramids to happiness called purposeful, meaning that Allah would allow evil to take place. Because he makes the end result of it good for the person you're getting the
use of has to be an agent to call people to Islam.
Allah, Allah shaitan. to whisper to his brothers, to throw him in a in a will to be sold as asleep. Allah allows the governor and his wife to conspire to jailed him.
It's evil, right? What happened to him was evil. Right? But Allah turns it to be one.
So don't question. Don't say, what are we going through? Yeah, see, it's all good. It's all good. If the whole world unite, to bring about downfall of one, whom Allah will raise high, it could not succeed. Ne Ne shuren effective measures that were adopted by the brothers refused to bring him down.
Imagine this, Allah subhanho wa Taala. use their blocks to empower them.
And this is a question that the wider the lack of what is the wisdom Allah created shaitan. Satan, why evil exist, because Allah turns that evil to be what?
To be good. And that's the nature of the test.
On the other hand, if Allah wills, the fall of one, no one can see him.
That's why you have to trust him more with your heart. When the brothers refuse to cast him into the world, they believe that they had once and for all that trade with him. Later on, he became the ruler of Egypt.
And they humiliated they humbled themselves before him.
Elijah, his and his,
his wife, they thought that he gotten rid of the whole thing.
No, he, the king investigated the case. Right? Trust Allah subhanaw taala.
Yeah, if whatever Allah wills, it will be fulfilled. Regardless, there are 10 of those, I'm going to go through them quickly in sha Allah, Allah, Allah.
The rice has used this story to bring forth another truth. Wherever Allah wills, the Quran, I'm sorry, it will happen. It will happen Allah willed for us to be there, it will happen. But Allah makes things happen in a very slow motion by the way, you have to be patient.
I think I explained that when you want and 56 I can explain that. I thought that was a good occasion to explain it. Remember that empowered in the hearts first, before you get empowered in the land. And how do you empower get empowered and the heart How, through a carrot, having a good carrot? Yeah, you may force people like the rulers, Jmt, boo,
boo, boo, boo, boo, boo, jail, boot them to death, like the presidents in the Middle East. Now, you may do that to get people to listen to you. But the moment they have a chance to jump on you, they're gonna jump on you.
But they tell you
that the rulers without grounds are the squatters are the people who teach the religion and the prophets and the message will follow in the footsteps of the prophets and the messenger.
For six to go.
I think I can explain that.
The greatest lesson of this story.
If a believer possesses true Islamic characters, and is endowed with wisdom, he can conquer a whole country
through his strength of character and through use of conquered Egypt, who was the superpower at the time, by the way, he was like America now for information. Egypt was like America now like a superpower. He conquered Egypt
through his career.
The Marvelous example of profit uses teaches us the man of our high and pure character comes out successful even under the most adverse imagined jail. Measure of slave sold his own brothers. So
what do you mean? Oh, you mean what do you mean?
Young man and get get going?
I think this alliance held comes on time.
But not your time allies. Look at the verse one thing diverse before last year
Mohammed bin Rashid Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda stay as a hot either stay as
a coup de boo, imagine a lot with leave the messenger to the stage that the messengers are about to the speed at
which Muslims and Muslims that I think they are they are out there doing
what doesn't help us and why
is using usury Riba and he's complaining about why Allah doesn't help the Muslims, while others will help you.
Fix your life first before you question on my Stein and wisdom that your condition first.
But Allah has helped comes on time six.
The message has been almost Islam. Can you feel that? Jim? Don't you feel that that the message has been always that's monotheism.
You see, we believe in all these prophets and messengers, we love them we cannot imagine we adore these characters is part of our faith. For me to love Jesus to love, but we love them as messengers and prophets. We don't give them any divine status, because that would negate the divinity of God's you as if you're associating them with God. And that's, we have a very clear line read through them. We can jump in there. The only thing that changes from messenger to messenger is what the word which scares America, it's called what shehryar they don't like that word.
Yeah, Sharia. What is Sharia Davalos? You see, Allah Subhana Allah, you see the laws of moves are not suitable to our laws now to our time now. So the laws have to suit the time you're getting them. And that is why if the messenger brings the Foundation, which is monotheism, but the abrogated laws, which suits the time, liquidity in jalna minquan Sheraton webinar. Okay, for more to go on. You're gonna go Whoa, come on. I'm not gonna chastise you. I love this. I love this. I love this.
Which one would you like to be?
He had the character fuses
the character of Jacob,
people who are molded in he in Islam.
And meanwhile, you got this worldly characters. Lizzie's and his wife, the brothers later on the brothers, by the way, they became Muslims and their dependents so we shouldn't nag after them. You see, this is a character that was that which evolved into hating Islam.
There is a big connection between having a good character and believing in a line that they judge. That's why there is always that connection.
The Prophet says, Whoever believes in Allah and that is judgment, let him be nice to his neighbors. Whoever believes in Allah and that they've just been let him be generous to his guests. Whoever believes in our line that they have gentlemen he whether speaks good or what the walk beside? Why the connection between a character and what
and the he believes in a line? Because that's the only way you see people harm you people call you all type of things and go after me ALLAH forgive you. Because you want that he works from home.
If you expect the reward from Allah for that,
so which character would you like to be?
You don't have to answer me. Answer a law.
I believe or must be tested.
not because you say I believe you're not going to be tested. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day he asked Who is the person will get most get tested most Manisha Ganassi Bella, the prophets then the righteous and based on the quality of your faith, you will be tested.
The higher quality, the elevated the test is
the hanging deal. If you have tested that means you have faith. Hold on.
It's only 67 years and we'll be done inshallah.
Okay, next. Ah, I love this one. I love this one because
I don't know some of you may not know this, I used to be a tourist, a tour guide. I used to be a historian easy jump. Before becoming that whoever I am now, I don't know what they call them.
Seriously, and then, also Panama.
I'll never, I'll never forget this day four.
Because I went to school for five years to study Egyptian history.
Imagine never in any of the textbook, they told us about use of Moosa and Anthony is
never the named Moses or Benyus or it was mentioned in any of the textbook
imaginisce because really, the Egyptians were the bad people.
And various tribes or what were the Muslims was the good people at the time. So what I teach you history there, that's where you know, the, the curriculum can mess up generations. So how am I I got, I got graduated. This is off. I'm done with that if you want to go go but but this is a story that I know that you would like to listen to. I'm done.
But listen to this.
Somehow subpanel I get graduated Jim from college.
And the first job I get a company based in New York called Christian tools.
And it has a branch in Bavaria in Germany, Oberammergau. That's the name I used to speak German to or I do I mean, I still do but it's, I can practice called crystallizing. What is the story here, the priest and the rabbis, they form their own church groups. And they come to visit the Holy Land in Israel, then they cross the border to Sinai, they go to mountain, the mountain what Prophet Moses spoke to, then I bring them to Egypt for one day to see the pyramids. And then I think to the airport, I used to do like for for two years. So I go to the border with his with I call it Philistine, and I received the group. By this time they visited Jerusalem, they visited the Holy
Land in and then I will take them to the mountain where Prophet Musa alayhis salam supposedly spoke to Allah, we would wake up at one o'clock in the morning and we climb this mountain. By the time we get there, the sunrise, it's a huge mountain. And then we come down and they visit the monastery in St. Catherine monastery, then I would take them to Egypt to visit the pyramids and do some tour there. And then they saw the you know, the Jewish rabbis and the the priests the Christian priests, these are guys we're what a lot of them are. What people evangelische the the like the Salafi kind of
Christians, you know, the you know, the the Salafi Christians. So
the Jews build the pyramids,
which it is, and I get so mad.
You know, we had that Egyptian thing you know, they they raised up with that thing, you know that, you know, that.
All this stuff is fake. metallized of hydrolyzed like, but they brimstone. Me? Do they wash you? It's like here, you know, they they watch the damn kids do not believe in God, you know? So the Egyptians built the pyramids, the Egyptian build them, and I get so mad at the guy. No, that's the only thing left for us. I mean, that's the one thing that I stand out the the Egyptians built the pyramids, and I explained it, no, the Jews build the pyramids, not the Egyptians
alive. And this would happen almost as if they talk to one another everyone.
And voila, here is why I remember these days, I would go back to the textbook book that I started in college. So
there is there is no mention of Jews anything they removed all of this from the books.
I used to live by the pyramids, I used to have a flat by the pyramids. So I get them on the taxi. You know, I delivered this guy, this this
this group, and then I stopped the taxi. And I found this you know, taxi driver, Danny, mostly his beard is huge. And he's playing the Quran in his in his rage. So I'm sitting in the back and I'm my blood still boiling because that Rabbi just told me that the Jews build the pyramids and I was trying to overcome it. You know, it's like, and then this guy, man he elements a lie. I'll never forget this. There are liars if it's yesterday. And Michelle and Paul see me It's the first time as if I use the product.
Till tilaka kita
not Lu Allah ii caminada A Moosa was era una de la
Daily follow me just go home and listen to puzzles and you will know what what I'm telling you
a lot. The Quran is telling me that Musa was in Egypt and the Pharaoh and slave the Egyptian leader that the Muslims of Bani Israel
and they throw him in the river. And he was backed up.
Man, this was an easy
what happened to the textbook? How come is nothing to textbook?
Well, I had this day Why? I started
Yani feeling betrayed
that you're a victim of a curriculum that you can even, you know, you see, at this time, there was that 73 war 67 war. So they are trying to get us to hate the Jews and the Jews. Like anybody who's you know, not desirous, but that you completely.
They brainstorm you in a way they orchestrated them.
But one of the interesting things here,
and this is what the argument here.
There was a difference in Egypt to Egypt in the Koran, during the time of Moosa and during the time of Yusuf why the ruler, during the time of use of was called the king.
And the ruler during the time of Moses was called the Pharaoh. That's a title by the way, like president now. You know, it's a title.
And how did the prophets of Salaam knew about this?
When Napoli own Puna bonds, the French general
conquered Egypt, he brought with him a group of scientists.
what is known to be a Rosetta Stone. Even though they use it here, what is the Rosetta Stone
you're able to read the the hieroglyphic language and understand it. At this time. By the way, there was no access.
And that's why they started discovering these mummies and all that after finding out that Rosetta Stone because that Rosetta Stone had that what what this sign stands for that you can actually read now what's written in the walls. And you can translate history now. Egypt during the time of use of was invaded by a force in the East called the Higgs who's
imaginisce. And the ruler was called the king.
This happened by the way, 200 years ago, 200 years ago we're talking about this was revealed 114 100 years ago.
How did the Prophet know about this?
But during the time of Moosa,
the pharaoh restored them, they kick these guys out. And the reason why the enslaved Benny survived the children of Israel because they believe that children of Israel held the occupier
you're getting it
because you have held Egypt
held these guys with his plan and that's why I said you know what, these guys they held the occupier let's enslave them. That's one of the reasons Yeah. But this is again, another thing that shows you that the Quran is not something that is what Yeah,
we're in Nicolette willock palparan I'm in Latin hakima Nadeem de como la jolla, LA I rest my case. Next Shura is very short is going to be done in a half hour called the thunder. The thunder the thunder beautiful Jazakallah Farah Salaam Alaikum
