Although we live in a shutdown the regime has been lie haha Rahim
Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Shafi Don't be able mousseline. Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Allah you are it was Abu Salam to Sleeman cathedra cathedra merveilleux. My brothers and sisters we are on the story of usefully salaam which Allah subhanaw taala called Sun will cost us the best of stories the best of Chris says which is true story this is not a made up story.
So, let us try to see what lessons we can learn from this inshallah. As we know, ALLAH SubhanA wa delas purpose of telling us the, about the lives and incidence of lives is not a biographies, but incidents of lives of his own. Bialy mussalam is to teach us lessons to apply in our own lives.
In the case of usury, CERAM is perhaps the only Nabhi about whom Allah subhanaw taala spoke in such detail and told us his whole story from the time he was a little boy to the time he grew up all the trials and tribulations that he had to
undergo and how he conducted himself and watch how Allah subhanaw taala helped him and so on. And all of this is for us to learn lessons from the beauty of the Quran Al Karim is that
even though the
the revelation was of the Quran was done 14 146 or something years ago.
Everything in it is relevant to today's times to today's conditions. And inshallah This is our Aqeedah that this will continue to be relevant as long as human beings exist on the face of the earth. The Quran is the last book of Allah subhanaw taala it came to his last Nabhi Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa early he was having Selim
Rasul Allah is a solemn was the Imam Colombia, the heart, the moon mursaleen
the heart it will never be in the last and final of them after whom there is no messenger and therefore his message is the last and final after which there is no direct message from Allah subhanaw taala and the developer and therefore it is very important for us to pay attention to it or to try to understand it, and extremely important to extract from it the lessons that it is replete with that it is filled with,
and then to apply them in our lives. The purpose of the Quran and the lessons from the Quran is not simply for us to read them and to,
to admire them and to philosophize about them and to write books about them but to apply in our life, that's the only purpose to understand, to read to understand and to apply in our lives. In the case of usually Salah now we continue with the with the class, Allah subhanaw taala set out we live in a shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim is of all who like us who are who are humble Isla de Nam In our nationals in Abba and Allah fie Dali movie.
Allah said when they said and the lesson in this story Allah said when they said Truly use of when his brother Binyamin Benjamin are loved more by our father than we are. But we are strong we are asked by we are a strong group and really our father is is misguided. Allah Allah, Allah Allah, the lowly Mubin he is plainly misguided plainly in error.
Now, as I mentioned to you last time, the
it may be natural, it is natural that in
in many families, the youngest child gets the maximum affection at least demonstrate of affection because the little kid and you know little kids are they this is an human nature. You feel loving and you feel
especially if it's like if it's a child who's you know, beautiful and smiling all the time and good temperament and so on. I'm not talking about children who are whiners, but children who are who are good tempered, you feel attracted towards them as if you love them. You like to do things for them, you will give them sweets or something.
So same thing with parents parents tend to shower a lot of love and affection on their youngest ones. Now this is
unfortunately, it's not a good thing because it inculcates instigate jealousies. Unfortunately, jealousy is not correct. I mean, we are I'm not saying here that people are being jealous or doing something good, they are not, but these jealousies happen.
So these people now the the other group, they said we are elders, we are powerful. We are
Men, we are strong as a group we can protect our father and our families and so on. But he loves this kid. So he's misguided. Now he's obviously very wrong to say that, especially when their father is an Arabian, they know this, they know he's an OB, and they're saying that he is misguided on the soul so horrible.
Therefore, they made a plan to assassinate Yusuf Ali Salam shaitan. And this is what Saturn does all the time, he makes something which is small, seem to be very big, it's like having a speck of dust in your eye. You know, Speck, or it says back. But if it's in your eye, then you cannot see anything else, no matter what else is there outside whether how big no matter how beautiful, your whole focus and attention is that speck in the eye.
Now, the speck in the eye, you are focusing attention on it, and you're trying to get out, get it out from your eye, clean the eye, and this is obviously what we should do. But what shaytan does is he makes that speck look very attractive. So shatta and made them see the little issue of father loves this one more than he loves me now, which is really, really a small issue. And it's a it's a very, it's very immature to think like that. But Chetan made that into a very big issue. And the
the big issue, which is the killing of their own brother, he made them look as if it was something very smart, but to the plan to kill us varicella. This is a terrible, terrible thing. If you think about that, that, that people give in to this. And if you think that this is only
this only happened in those days, just go and see
and ask and look around and see how many attorneys are getting enriched because you have brothers trying to assassinate the brothers and in this case, I don't mean physically as in as in kill them, but trying to take away the property trying to do something and you know, take the bigger share in the property and things like that. Where the like assassinating I mean, you know, assassinating of character they're saying bad things about them and so on and so forth.
So they and then Jetta also gave them this you know, thing to say well you know, do it and then make the Allah will forgive this is it these are even bigger crime because now you are
treating now will Allah subhanaw taala and the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala as something that you can manipulate to your own advantage
right it's not it's not something for us to feel the oil and majesty of but it's something that we can just treat it just like that you know, manipulate it. Get it Get get Allah to do whatever we want him to do now will be left.
So there is an optimal use of Avatara hoho
out of the year Hello la come watch who are become what a cool room embody Coleman Salehi
after you become pious Carla aka aluminium law talk to us via our Alko V Ray about will yell the pit who Bardot sejati in condom violin does that kill us of our class devout
manly punish him to some other land so that the favor of your father may be given to you alone and after that you will become righteous people by making
intending to repent before committing the sin so this is what Chatter is playing give them so however there's one of them who was kind of
you know maybe on the fence because I mean obviously he was still part of the same thing so he wasn't a great guy but he wasn't at least not as worse as as bad as the as the worst of them. So he said do not kill him it's one of them said Do not kill yourself. But if you must do something throw him down to the bottom of a well and he will be picked up by some caravan of travelers obviously his kindness is hardly kindness using swim down into well. Now what happens if you throw somebody down into a well if there's water in the well there wasn't will drown if there's no water in the well they will probably break their legs and then and their neck or something. So it is not that this
person was a great guy. He just doesn't want to
you know within quotes, get the literally the blood of use of on his hands by by actually actually killing him. Now this is very very important to for us to stop here and to think about this and say how and reflect on how Satan deceives the deception of shaitan here is in this in two ways. One is where shaitan is first of all telling them to do something which of course they know it is haram I mean nobody
I don't think there's anybody in the world who thinks that killing his brother is a good thing to do. So it is they know it is wrong. They know it is haram they know it is prohibited
They know it is a major, major, major crime major sin. They know that if they get caught for it then the punishment in Islam is
is is depth right?
But the devil is still contemplating and not only do the contemplated but shatta and is telling them this is fine, there's no problem just do it and you know, just make intention. We are going to do this and we make Toba. So make the intention before and everything is fine, which is now we'll learn how to be like It's like trying to fool Allah subhanaw taala right. Allah is right that I mentioned this Amina Nassima Yokohama Nabila, he will yummy laffy
Omar homebuilt many you hide you in Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said that there are people who are among the among the among the nice among the people that are those who say we believe in Allah and we believe in the diversity of judgment, but they are not Muslims. They're not mumineen they try to fool Allah subhanaw taala and they try to fool the believers. Now, these I'm not applying that idea. These people were were Muslims, but they were people of this same kind of mentality where you think you can fool Allah subhanaw taala now, you think that it is it's okay, I can get away with this.
Right? And then it was me and you're trying to play games and you say, oh, no, but you see, I will make Toba and I will do this and I will I will repent as if Allah subhanaw taala is compelled to accept your thought, even though you may have made some intention. The very fact that you're making an intention to make Toba means that you know that what you're going to do is wrong. Otherwise, what is the intention of making dope I mean, if you're if I'm, I don't make the intention of making Toba when I'm praying, when I'm doing my salah or something, I'm giving charity because I know this is a good thing to do. Allah subhanaw taala ordered me I'm fulfilling is Helcom is command.
So Inshallah, at the end of that, I will still make us the far because the way in which I do it is not in keeping it's not sufficient for the grace and Magnus magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala. But at the same time, it's not something that I
that I consider to be, you know, Zol I take it so lightly, that I also chi I'll do this and make our so you are really treating Allah subhanaw taala with with with disrespect, and with disdain, and you think you can manipulate Allah subhanaw taala very, very, very major, major sin that these people were contemplating to commit. And the reason I'm saying this is that today in this world where we deal with interest where we deal with alcohol, well, we do deal with doing all kinds of haram. We also have mela protectors, the same kind of attitude, even though we may not say it in so many words, but the same kind of attitude, where we feel it's okay let's do this with our Colossians is
no problem in Allah subhanaw taala forgive, this is very, very evil. This is very, very bad. And if Allah subhanaw taala does not have mercy on us then we will be in serious trouble because as a philosopher, what is the reply? What is the answer we can give to Allah subhanaw taala if Allah subhanaw taala tells us that this is what you weren't intending to do. Knowing that it angers me and you were intending to commit this crime just because you wanted to do it and and then you do you treat my forgiveness with disdain so today there's no forgiveness right? You will pay a price for this what is the answer to that if that happens, may Allah protect us?
So they went to the Father
and they said Kahlua avana Mala kala Aman Allah use of were in law who were in Allahu
Allah Nasser Hall
are still who mana Vaadin yatta yatta in Allah who have his own color the virus Allah in the Lair has an oni and does have wubi he saw for a Kulu 01 dome and who have you LOL call in aka Jose boo boo or Saba in is Allah has your own.
So they said oh of other Why do you not trust us with use of when we are indeed his well wishes? Send him with us tomorrow to enjoy himself and play and when we leave we will take care of him. He actually Salam he said Truly it saddens me that you should take him away I fear lest a wolf should go should catch him to do outings will eat him up while you are careless of him. They said if a wolf devours him while we are close by we had a strong group to guard him, then surely we are the losers. Now imagine they are contemplating doing exactly that. But they are they have no shame in putting forth this claim to say we will protect him and they have already intended to
to kill. So they took Yusuf Ali Salam out with him and they threw him into a well and then they slaughtered a small goat and they tinted his clothes with the blood of the goat and they went to the father into
told him that he had been killed by a wolf does exactly the same thing with the father was
was was fury. They use the same thing to tell him well you know we are sorry this happened
so when they were throwing him into the well
Allah subhanaw taala revealed to us with a salam ala Maga will be here tomorrow I Lu V via
V via but it will be one hour in La de la to not be unknown BM Rahim.
Allah said so when they took him away, they agreed to throw him down to the bottom of the well and we inspired in him indeed usual one day inform them of this affair, when they will not do loss monitor is now telling him what we know in the Surah comes right at the end. When you ovulate, Salam is the is the Aziz is the governor of Egypt. And these his brothers are brought before him and then he tells them he does this is what you have done to your brother use of and they don't recognize him because now he's is standing there as a grantee in all this grant, you're in his in his ceremonial ceremonial robes and whatnot. Allah said don't worry, do not fear this is what will come to be this
will what this is what will happen.
And let's run it and also obviously, Salam.
Salam said wa salam came and he put his wing under use of a Salomon door very gently to the bottom of the well, so that nothing happened to him because obviously if you think about this, throwing a little child into a well, I mean, how cruel and how much of hatred there must have been in the hearts of people really we have to look into our own hearts and clean our hearts that we carry these grudges somebody said somebody said that no I got so angry with this person because this person did not did not respect me my share who's to say
anytime this thought comes to so and so did not respect me ask yourself what is me is worthy of respect. He said who are you? He used to say who are you? You are the one when you were conceived both your parents went into Gaza both your parents went and took a bath
so you are not just you are you are a unclean
your your your conception was the exploration of an unclean substance
that is your origin this is who you are
you're gonna happen Monica thorough job hurry you were talking about don't don't also get to that key Zack is back he's back man is it easy.
So you are supposed to be you should be respected for what
for being this this drop of cinema
we have to remind ourselves this.
And my ending is going to be what? My ending is going to be in a grave where they are going to throw mud on my face
to this key IP data
per gozal data
or just getting
the mean metadata. Okay, is that
somebody who's beginning is that the Mercosul
they have a bath and is ending is that they throw mud on his face they bury him in the ground.
What is it? What prestige does that does the individual have what is it you want people to do?
So if people are expecting you, this is as Obama Shantilal is here. This is because of the half this is because of the cover that Allah subhanaw taala put over they are looking at the cover they are praising the cover they don't know what is under the cover.
So we make dua to Allah always keep the other half on us. You have covered us you have covered our sins you have covered our our mistakes. Please keep it covered. Please forgive us do not reveal our reality
our athletes before the world
so a lot of run into that. This is how he gives succor and support to the hearts of his amyrlin Salaam when they are in dire danger so that they remain steadfast towards him. The literal
digger suit as an asylum situation in dive
Yeah, how difficult it was.
How terrible it
For us, he was in physical danger he was in psychological pain and suffering.
And also Atala kept him from Allah subhanaw taala supported him kept him from.
So he did not lose his courage. And then he made this beautiful dua, where he said Allah, if you are pleased with me, then I don't care what the world thinks.
And if you are not pleased with me, then I will work and I will continue to struggle until you are pleased.
hamdulillah beautiful Dorward is what comes because of the topic of Allah subhanho.
And this is the view that he gave to his navy is Khalil is away his beloved so that he could be stuck he could be and remain steadfast on the correct path even through such difficulties and is the Sierra obviously Salah is full of these stories. And we had to come back here
so these people know that continuing their drama wotja Who about whom Russia and your goon they were crying they came at the time we shot
all about in the hub Nana's tell you Quwata. Can I use var in Matar ina for Aquila, who Zerbo OMA and meaning meaning Lana, while Okinawa saw the kid but Jah Oh ALLAH community with Amin callable so welcome. And for zoom, I'm Ron for sovereign Jamil wala who was the iron why the amount of seafood and they came to their father in the early part of the night weeping and they said Oh, our Father, we were raising with one another and we left us by our belongings and a wolf killed him devoured him. But you will never believe us even when we speak the truth and they brought his shirt stained with them in the false blood and he's a name that will is Rumson No, but your own selves have made
up a tail. So, for me patience is most fitting and it is Allah Subhana Allah alone whose help can be sought against what you assert.
yeah, so but yeah, holy Selim dilemma was that he could do nothing to his own son. So he said someone Jamil is the best option for me and I ask Allah subhanaw taala to help me now, the again you see here
the father or the father of the helpless these people are strong and they are you know, here he has no authority or Columbia here authority, but the authority cannot be implemented this is the problem with authority in many places today that the enforcement is not there the laws are there, but the enforcement is not so the authority cannot be asserted. And authority which is not enforced, which is not asserted authority which is not
accompanied by strength is pointless because it you know, there's injustice will still be done.
May Allah protect us from that. So, this is what was the situation with us what he said Um, so, he said, if he actually said, several in general I will have, I will suffer I will have patients, I will, I will not complain. And Allah subhanaw taala alone was that Allah subhanaw taala is the one to help and I turn to Allah subhanaw taala for his help.
Now, very quickly, thereafter, Allah Allah how much time there was, but a caravan came by and a man went to the well to draw water. And usually Salam clung to the bucket, which came out which was lowered, and he came out of the well, the man was delighted, because he knew that he could sell him for a good price as a slave in Egypt. So now this is literally like sort of falling from the
frying pan into the fire kind of thing.
Because he has his life is saved. But
now he's facing a life of slavery. The reason I'm saying this is because of course in the case, it was very seldom, you know, the whole story, but put yourself in that place in that position.
As a normal human being, including Universal himself, he didn't know how all this would end of course, he had the the
revelation from Allah subhanaw taala, that even when those around him, so he knew that this would have a happy ending, but other than that, he didn't know how it would, would pan out. So you're seeing situations for example, usually Salah was in a beautiful situation. He was in his home, his parents loved him, and they loved him more than anybody else. So he was literally top of the world. And suddenly now, he is in the first of all, is he's in the
control and grip of his brothers who hate him. And then those brothers are able to fulfill what they want to do with him which is to kill him. That was their intention. They dumped him into the well. And then when what looks like rescue is actually taking him into a live
Which portends, and which promises to be worse than what
debt would it be? I mean, slavery. If there is one thing that you can say that I prefer that to this, that would be slavery, I mean, it would be definitely, you know, it is better to die than to be, and live as a slave.
That's where he's going. So the point I'm making here is that even though we might find in our lives that we are seeing some downturns, and we are going from you know, from point one, this point to this point to this point, on the surface of it, the materialistic view of it, the physical view of it seems to be that we are going from bad to worse, one must not lose hope.
Right, one must not lose hope. Because Allah subhanaw taala is always there. Well, the homestand last matter we had, if you take the zero resources, we see the same thing, where if you see the entire makin period, it is one
difficulty to another difficulty and each difficulty is worse than the previous difficulty, one after the other one after the other.
You have the, all the opposition until he went to dive, and every opposition that was happening to him each was worse than the other.
They first started with trying to persuade him in one way or the other two tools to give up the message of Islam. Then they tried to force him then they tried to, you know, hurt him physically, they maligned his character, the character assassinated him.
Right? They did all of that. And then when he went to die, he was physically harmed. He was physically attacked, he was injured he suffered pain is bleeding.
All of that happened then when he came back and after that, he was bad. He was banned. He was you know, his
his whole family
the one who Hashem were banned in the in the
the in the
in the value of ATI
Sheva, Vitaly. And they suffered the suffered grievously at all his family with him and imagine this is it for him, some of our service was both physical and psychological, because physical Of course, his own, you know, hunger and so on. You might say, well, you know, he's a tough man, he would have, he would have, he wouldn't have minded that kind of physical difficulty, but to to know that everyone else here is suffering because of me. They don't hit them, they hit me. And because these people are associated with me, they are also suffering because of me. And of course, the beautiful people who supported him despite the fact that they did not ever agree with him. In some cases, they
I will tell you, for example, I didn't never accept Islam, but his support from Islam and didn't simply support him verbally. He was there in that in that valley, he was suffering. And he was an old man he was suffering hunger and all the privations of that Khadija the cobra, Amara familia, lawanna Our mother she completely bankrupted herself. She was the wealthiest woman in Makkah. She was a very wealthy person she completely because she was feeding the whole tribe, the entire tribe was was being fed by her and she was being a lot of what kind of money to people who were quietly you know, selling food and so forth. So she completely all her wealth.
Again, physical center again, you may remember all this. All of this is what gave her the the Laura Delana her status.
Where Allah subhanaw taala sent salam ala This is beautiful story in the Zerah where the will is the Lamb Kim was a seller and he said to him, Yasser Allah,
these will come your wife is going to come just now. Please tell her that I am saying salaam to her and tell her that his that her Rob Gela de la who he has sent me to send his salaam to your wife, Hadith of the hola Juana.

imagine this D really Salam comes only to your salaam to her little cobra or the Allah Han
status comes with effort. And this is what she got. She got she made the effort she gave the that's why I don't like to use the word sacrifice because this is investment what what would supposing somebody says to you what are you willing to do in order for God?
Julius salam to come with Salam from Allah subhanaw taala what would you say? I mean this is, this is not happening to me or you but I'm just saying that if this was a choice given to us, what would you say anyone with a with a with a with a grain of Imam they would say take everything
including my life.
If my Abdullah was sending Salam on me Alhamdulillah I am willing to give everything but remember even for us, Allah Samantha gave us the opportunity. Allah subhanaw taala said those who have summer

Then Allah subhanaw taala will send his Salam on them and Allah will send His mercy and master

Sir hamdulillah in Allah when Allah you
Yes, there is pain. Yes, there is pain will be removed. Yes, I'm sorry. But
I don't lose track of who I am. I don't lose track of my own mortality. I don't lose track of the fact that the person who died went to if they died with him and they went to a place which is far far, far superior to where they came from, which is this world.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness for His mercy we ask Allah to enable us to learn the lessons that he intends us to learn from these beautiful stories of his unbelievable Salah masala Hara will carry on O Allah He was I remember I had forgotten what I mean.
