00:00:00--> 00:00:14

He in smaller 100 He loves all salam ala Rasulillah how on earth you also have your drying and begin the name of Allah All Praise and glory Vito Allah amaze, find his peace and blessings be upon His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his family and his companions.

00:00:16--> 00:00:21

And all those who shared his path, we welcome everyone back to the best of stories, the study of the story of use of valet Salaam.

00:00:24--> 00:00:30

And the lessons they're in, we left off last week with use of valet salams father,

00:00:31--> 00:00:35

reaching the height of his grief, and, you know, the,

00:00:36--> 00:01:04

the brink of his sadness that could no longer be contained. And so he released it to Allah Subhana Allah data and he expressed it to him and he told the sons, I'm not complaining to you, and I do not complain to anyone but Allah, and you need to just go find us and his brothers. And somehow, as the scholar said, though, his eyes went dark, that ray of light that ray of hope still made way to his heart, and he acted on it he told his sons go find us.

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

So they returned to Egypt.

00:01:11--> 00:01:15

Not sure what to do and not knowing that they're returning to use of.

00:01:16--> 00:01:46

And so Allah azza wa jal says in this first verse, we recited for them Dakhla Lu Ali, he, once they entered upon him upon use of follow, they said, Yeah, you realize is so as He is Almighty Governor Messina or Allah Elena adore us and our family have, have experienced a great deal of bloom or a great deal of suffering, you know, from the hunger and the starvation, and the drought, where jitna we will blow out the majority and we have come to you with

00:01:48--> 00:02:24

very meager merchandise, very scant merchandise for Elfi Lenell kala with a solid the following and so, but still though, give us full measure, even though we cannot afford it this time around, or the sub the Felina and be charitable towards us why in Allah is dealing with the solidarity and because Allah rewards people for being charitable. And so, you know, of the many lessons in this verse, of course, is the inevitable humiliation that the wrongdoers have to experience

00:02:26--> 00:02:28

in this world before the hereafter,

00:02:29--> 00:02:35

of course, we don't mean hunger, but we mean the humiliation of feeling inferior.

00:02:38--> 00:03:20

You know, these were the brothers of use of who plotted against him. These were the people who who said kill use of right they are now the one saying oh mighty Governor nervously right? These are the same these are the people that said you know, how can our father you know love your use of more generous but when we're a mighty clan and they took their hands and they reached out with those hands and grabbed us valet Salem throw him into a well helpless use of valet Salem. And now those same hands are being humiliated by stretching outward for whatever charity if you will,

00:03:21--> 00:03:44

he can can give them and so of course on one hand you know just this recharges our surety that Allah has everything covered and his overall things capable and knows it all and sees it all and has promised on so on Mikey well by the hand I will support the oppressor even if after a while. But just the humiliation of sin and hassle was the Rahim Allah used to say that

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

you know, even if the horses dance under them.

00:03:53--> 00:04:03

You know, like, imagine a very rich person, you know, pulls up in the nicest cars and so on and so forth. But they're corrupt, they're wicked. He says even if the stallions dance under them.

00:04:04--> 00:04:57

The blackness of sin will never leave their face ever Allah Who inland new Villa Manasa he said that Allah insists to humiliate everyone who defies him. And so, you know, even a Josie Rahim Allah, this verse in Surah Yusuf, he said whoever deeply considers you know, the the humiliation of use of his brothers in this moment will realize the long lasting negative impact of wrongdoing. You know, you're you live feeling inferior you live, you know, worrying if you're gonna get caught you live and sometimes you do get caught so you're just surrounded, and it's not escapable you know, the sin it's pleasure is fleeting, it you know, and so fast, but the consequences are inescapable and they

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

are longer lasting than the pleasure

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

Fear of that sin in this world, that's the idea in this world even before the Hereafter.

00:05:09--> 00:05:23

And so they came to him and they explained their hardship. And by the way scholars, you know, they lose from this verse that it is of now, of course, the only verse But of the verses that prove it's permissible to complain to the creation, or mention your need to the creation.

00:05:24--> 00:05:32

For the sake of getting help, because you supply they said, I'm would not have been silent about that if that were wrong. If that were inappropriate, this is

00:05:33--> 00:05:37

tacit approval, if clobber shadow, they call it right.

00:05:38--> 00:05:43

But then when they explained their experience, they said be charitable to us.

00:05:44--> 00:06:07

Some scholars, you know, they they probed. You know, this statement, what is it mean exactly be charitable to us, because we know that the profits don't consume charity. And so how could they be asking for charity? Even if they're not profits? Because that's debatable that their profits are not unlikely at their profits according to mega theatre because profits do not commit such sins

00:06:08--> 00:06:23

ever. Like they did in the beginning of the story, and Allah knows best what they did from then till now, at this point in the story, what's still there bringing food back to jacobellis, and I'm so how could he consume charity? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said national martial MBA

00:06:27--> 00:06:39

learner cruzada Oh, Leno, Roth mattock and alpha horse Allah, you know, the profits don't consume charities, the profits are not had inherited what we leave is charity. So they give in charity, they leave behind charity, and they don't consume charity.

00:06:40--> 00:06:45

And so they said, some of them said, this is the

00:06:47--> 00:07:00

this is not for all the prophets. Because the Prophet SAW Selim actually said as we are not inherited, what we leave behind his charity. And he said, the family of Mohammed meaning in his Shediac, don't consume charity, but the previous prophets could accept it

00:07:01--> 00:07:04

could accept charity?

00:07:05--> 00:07:20

That's a possibility. The other possibility, they didn't actually mean charity, they just said be charitable, meaning be generous, be gracious, because they said we have bid law, we have merchandise, but it's most Yeah, it is like, you know,

00:07:22--> 00:07:32

low quality low worth. And so just even though we don't have the full payment, be generous, give us a discount. So they're not really asking for charity, they're asking for a break

00:07:34--> 00:07:44

in the sale, and that is still considered a sale, you know, a reduced price sale is still a sale. Because prices can be chosen. There's no setting of prices in Islam, in a sense, right.

00:07:47--> 00:07:58

As a default rule principle, anyhow, so that's what they meant. And this was the view of a tapa de Rahim Allah, if not sure, and others have seen a scholar said,

00:07:59--> 00:08:36

they, they were not talking about the money at all, they were actually talking about their brother, be charitable with us, meaning, you know, we don't have payment at all for our brother because there's no there's no price, the punishment is that you get enslaved if you're a thief, there's no exchange rate for this. And so they meant let our brother go just out of climate seat, give him you know, Amnesty or give him you know, just a gracious release. And in that case, it would be no problem at all because that's not charity at all. That's not you know, like consuming charity. We're not consuming our brother we're asking you to do him a favor and forgive him

00:08:40--> 00:08:48

so that that is how they're asking for charity in case someone may be wondering how can a prophet s for charity or how can you help Albany Salem consume charity, this is how that

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

that concept is reconciled?

00:08:52--> 00:09:05

You know, interestingly, any member will be in haste tafsir a ferret FCS scholar says this, what they said be charitable to us and then they encouraged him by saying in Allah just even with some of their fame a lot

00:09:07--> 00:09:09

rewards the charitable.

00:09:10--> 00:09:25

He said for to be Rahimullah and this is proof that of why it is this like to say in your DUA when you're talking to Allah don't say oh Allah be charitable with me out I'll be the sub the highlight Yeah, that's not right. He's saying it's this like to speak to Allah Israel that way.

00:09:27--> 00:09:38

And he quoted that Al Hassan basally Rahim Allah great scholar of the tambourine once heard a man say they are bits of the color Yeah, my Lord give me some a call give me charity, like, you know, be good to me.

00:09:39--> 00:09:57

And so he said to him, like Yeah, Roger, like hey, you like them. Don't say that. Allah does not give charity. Charity is given by those who seek a real world reward. And then he recited this is sort of the use of in Allah Hades. Clean I love rewards, the charitable.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

So Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

rewarding himself and Alexon seeking reward. And so he said he told the man say Allahumma Aldini

00:10:10--> 00:10:11

Allah Who Maldini

00:10:14--> 00:10:27

Allah home with the fact that our lady said oh Allah give me or Allah, you know, be generous or gracious with me. Not so solid but fillet and not give me charity. Then we move on to the next verse. How did Yusuf Ali Salam respond? He said to them?

00:10:28--> 00:10:58

This is the big one, right? He said, Kyla halaal him to my Falcon views into our key event on J lawn. He said to them, Do you realize the you know, meaning to you realize are limited? Do you realize what you did to yourself and his brother while you're ignorant? Like, do you realize the gravity of what you did to us? And his brother? Out of the blue? This question comes because they don't have the slightest suspicion that he has used rallies.

00:11:00--> 00:11:31

And he just strikes them with this question out of nowhere, you know, the same way their father said, Go find use of out of nowhere now use rallies, you know, it's as if he's telling them, You know, I know everything. It says if he's telling them, You know, I don't want to go through the details. These are painful memories. I don't want to open this box again, I already conquered this, you know, this, you know, desire for vengeance? Do you recognize that what you did to your brother Joseph and his brother?

00:11:36--> 00:12:02

And also, in a sense, he, he's trying to end the conversation before it branches out, meaning I'm giving you an easy exit. It's not just like, you know, him, like, Do you at least admit that you guys have been, you know, just utterly, you know, disastrous in your behavior, you know, just so evil in what you did to your brother. He's giving them an exit like, just say yes.

00:12:04--> 00:12:27

And then he says what you did, and he gives him a further exit, in essence, According to some scholars by that last wording in the Hyatt, what he then told Jackie Lowen, while you are ignorant, like the envy, they had the contempt to the hatred, the actual, you know, planning, then tossing him into a well, all of that he calls it, Jen, just an act of ignorance and act of foolishness.

00:12:29--> 00:13:08

And, you know, the scholar said that he's, you know, just being gracious with them by downplaying it, because the generous person does not drag the rebuke. You know, later on, you'll see that he says to them letter three ballet comm they'll be no blame on you. But here, you know, there's still some sort of blame that he's putting on them. He wants them to feel a sense of blame. And so the difference is the wording. Really, it's not a tab not to 30 some of the scholars said, and a tab is you getting someone to recognize they did something wrong. Or step three is you condemn that condemning them for it. And there's, there's a bunch of terms in between, but just

00:13:11--> 00:13:37

making that distinction, I guess, is enough for our discussion. And so he wants to just to realize that, you know, I'm not excusing you, I'm telling you to recognize, but at the same time, he's telling them while you are ignorant that like you did not realize at that time, when you were doing it, they realize now, you know, you don't realize that you know, the you're ignorant of the outcome of the conspiracy you made against us valets around,

00:13:38--> 00:13:46

you know, and his brother are ignorant of the consequences of severing the bonds of kinship and tormenting an elderly parent or

00:13:47--> 00:14:33

so on and so forth. So ignorant of it. And it could have been, you know, in a sense, and there's not necessarily a different explanation, it kind of goes hand in hand that he's once again downplaying, like, a sad deal him alone, he spoke about this idea, he said, he then told Jack Lew and while you're ignorant, he said, he either was censoring them saying, you know, you were so ignorant to think this was no big deal. Or he was saying while you're ignorant, he could have meant, you know, while you were just being foolish and rash, and you know, just, you know, victims of Satan. And I don't, personally at least I don't see a reason why it cannot be a little bit of both of them. You

00:14:33--> 00:14:55

know, that you were ignorant. So, you know, to an extent that allows me to give you an opportunity to forgive you right now. But at the same time, you are ignorant of the gravity of what you did and that's why I'm asking you Halal him to morality on the use of are you aware of what you just did with use of what you did back then with use of when his brother

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

and so it clicks for them when this man

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

Who is not on their radar?

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

To be anyone they know.

00:15:06--> 00:15:16

Ask them Do you know what you did with us and his brother? Do you realize they're wondering Who are you How could you know this? Nobody knows this, but someone that was there and no one was there

00:15:18--> 00:15:52

you know, maybe they thought at that moment like did Benjamin tell him was Benjamin there? We don't even know that Benjamin it was actually there at the world. And so, you know, it's it's almost like as Dr. ifvp when he discusses the next verse, he says, it's almost like you know, the, in their minds, it all comes together everything falls in line. In a shocking moment, you know, the, the features of use of asylums face are being reconstructed in their minds in a flash all of them at the exact same time

00:15:53--> 00:16:25

you know, memories of the crime scene, you know, in the well are erupting in their minds the features of use of iclm matching what they remember so long ago about their brother, but now in an older man dressed as royalty, it is also solidifying and crystallizing. Now, you know, all of a sudden all of that happens to set the moment the emotional moment just ablaze and so they say this next verse ALU, in Nicola and the use of they say to him, is, is it really so is that you use of

00:16:27--> 00:16:28

are you really use is

00:16:29--> 00:16:35

in Kerala enter use of is it so, that you are actually use of

00:16:36--> 00:16:41

Allah and I use is that I am use of and I use of have athlete I am use of and that is my brother,

00:16:43--> 00:17:01

but men Allah Who Elena, Allah has favored us has been gracious to us in nettle mania. Definitely what else? In the Lucha lair you'll do, you'll do a Jordan Martini. And whoever practices Taqwa piety and Sabra and patients, Allah never fails to reward the the righteous.

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

And so

00:17:07--> 00:17:14

you Is that really you? Yes, it's me. I am use of I am use of Yes. And that is my brother.

00:17:15--> 00:17:23

So I am the use of the tried to kill and he tried to cast down a well and you wanted something and Allah subhanaw thought I wanted something else. And

00:17:24--> 00:17:34

he's laying it all out there. Yeah, I'm use of time that you find out this must have been as you know that some have said the most nerve wracking introduction

00:17:35--> 00:18:04

in human history. Imagine how shocked they were how wide their eyes got to confirm, can it really be? Are we really awake? And then he says, though, I want you to appreciate this. And this is my brother. Why did he say and this is my brother. So he's saying, And if anybody's actually my true brother, it's this one. The one who did not conspire against me, the one who did not ever forget me the one who did not.

00:18:05--> 00:18:08

As if you say to them, You guys didn't treat me like brothers.

00:18:11--> 00:18:22

Or he could also be saying Alehissalaam and this is my brother and I used to have who have that fe? to, for to say and I am his brother, in other words,

00:18:23--> 00:18:27

who have the FE would infer that

00:18:29--> 00:18:55

I am his true brother. And this is my brother, not your brother, meaning you guys have not been treating him like your his brothers. I have. And so he's saying this is my brother, meaning he's the only one that has not heard to me. And this is my brother, meaning I'm the one who will own brotherhood, his brotherhood and I am the one that will be treating him the way you have not been treating him because you have not been treating him like a brother. Like he's your brother.

00:18:57--> 00:19:40

And then he explains for men Allahu Allah, Allah Allah has been so gracious to us in now who may attack the whale spear. Whoever is you know, exhibiting Taqwa piety and Sobor and patience, Allah will not allow their award to go to waste. This is not showing off. Obviously, this is not boasting. This is being a smart Dahlia. You know, being a smart caller to Allah, you know, it's not the quantity that you speak, that you know, like floods, people's, you know, hearts and minds and something will finally get in and click. The person that is able to influence others is sparing with his advice and knows when the hearts are open, and he inserts that word. And so he is calling them

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

to these virtues to acquire and sub. And he is summarizing what this is all about. So that they don't think far and wide. Like what is this and like, did we mess up and like should we have not be selling this and don't get confused, you know, and also as well, we're talking about so many lessons and so many explanations and benefits from this surah but this 100 You know,

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

A verse story its most important lesson is right here don't miss it in now who may exactly well spear fan Allah Leroy John Mycenaean

00:20:11--> 00:20:17

whoever has tough one sub A lot will not allow your award to go to waste. You know, as

00:20:18--> 00:20:29

several scholars I wrote for them they said that Allah took these 100x 100 verses of the story and he summarized them in these 10 words because that's what they boiled down to.

00:20:32--> 00:20:34

If you read them in Arabic and 10 words

00:20:37--> 00:20:45

in novel enable me to tap the oil severe for in nulla. You'll Libero general Martini that's 10 words

00:20:49--> 00:20:53

and the last thing I will say what this verse very quickly so we can move on is that

00:20:55--> 00:21:01

tough questions sub but the same way you've had the humiliation of the sin at the beginning of this app facilitar series? Yeah, episode right there's an episode Yeah.

00:21:03--> 00:21:05

Installment episode lesson class.

00:21:07--> 00:21:43

telco and sovereign are the same way hola me reward you for your tough call and submit it differently. Because he may know that certain rewards may not be befitting of your you know your advancement towards his pleasure, your advancement and his eyes, they could destroy you. So don't expect that Allah is gonna reward you a certain way for your piety No, but Allah will reward you for your piety and reward you for your patience in this dunya before the NFL, in this world before the next he will replace you for what you gave up for his sake. And what you sacrifice and what you are patient with and what you're piously you know performing or abstaining from, he will reward you

00:21:43--> 00:21:44


00:21:45--> 00:22:16

The same way we said that fair enough. So then Marcia Ledford, if we do her home ever lovely Leila Manasa that you know the darkness or the gloominess of sin will not leave their faces the the Empires the Allah insists on humiliating here before the next life those who defy him. Likewise, may I tell to Wales to better those who have to up on Southern will not miss out on their reward, label the original Mycenean even in this world, even in this world, it's important to establish that

00:22:18--> 00:22:32

then the last two verses very quickly only have 10 minutes left Carlota la he left the earth rock Allahu Allah Aina in Quran Allah how to eat. They said by Allah Allah He or to Allah He which means Wallahi

00:22:34--> 00:22:39

Lhasa dasa like Allahu Elena, Allah has definitely clearly preferred you over us.

00:22:40--> 00:22:47

We're in Khun Na hottie in and we certainly definitely were sinful in the wrong

00:22:49--> 00:22:52

how to eat is different than mostly in right.

00:22:53--> 00:23:06

A mostly someone that is makes an accidental wrong. And they that's not You're not liable for that right? But they hardly is someone who is in the wrong, you know, in the in the culprit way, in the

00:23:08--> 00:23:14

accountable way. So they say by Allah Allah has preferred you over us.

00:23:15--> 00:23:32

And we were sinful we were certainly sinful. So they realize number one that use valet Saran was not just dear to their father, but he was dear to their Lord subhanho wa Taala and the realizing that there's like an air of jealousy in this

00:23:34--> 00:24:09

in this statement, but here's the catch. This is praiseworthy jealousy, this is something to cry over. And there's nothing wrong with that. Because you know, when you're competing for Allah's pleasure and being preferred and Allah's eyes, you're not wishing that someone else fall out of that because that would just be very perverted. You know, thinking because why would you want someone to miss out on Allah's pleasure? When Allah's pleasure is, you know, endless and His mercy is so wide, right? It's not like, there's limited seats in Jannah. Right? And so, but you wishing to outdo them without them missing out on their rank with Allah, that is a praiseworthy quality, that's what you

00:24:09--> 00:24:19

should be competing and that's what you know us Musa alayhis salam cried when he said the Prophet, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam will have more followers than him on the day of judgment. That is a beautiful quality.

00:24:21--> 00:24:40

Is it the ideal state or not? Is a different discussion. It's a little bit of a philosophy scholars debate on whether you should be competing with others or not. Many, many, many would, but some scholars have opinion that you should not even be looking to others you should be competing with yourself competing, you know,

00:24:41--> 00:24:56

outdoing yourself and not even looking at others. But the clearer easier to explain a easier to explain opinion is that you know, Wi Fi there like affiliate and Epson with NFC soon in this the pleasure of Allah let the computers compete.

00:24:58--> 00:24:58


00:25:00--> 00:25:11

And so they realize that the Allah has preferred us, not just our father has preferred you. And that is something we should be jealous about. We should be jealous of people that have done us to Allah and want to compete with them

00:25:19--> 00:25:19


00:25:20--> 00:25:26

you know, there's so much to say here, you know, but

00:25:27--> 00:25:51

look, some people don't come to the most basic truths, except decades later, they just don't realize it. And some people are just like that, you know, I always think of it was of yarn about the love of Thailand, it was a piano and how to pose you know, after the leaders of Croatia all died bedded in the first battle, he led Croatia against the province Elias Island, for you know,

00:25:52--> 00:25:53


00:25:54--> 00:26:37

for four or five brutal years, five years that felt like 20 You know, and he was in fact against the province of Baja to sell them they're not the leader, but he led for five and he was against the province also limb for for 20. And like right before if atomica Mo, Sophie, Sophia, and you know, sees all of these different tribes allying marching towards into Mecca. And you know, every so many of these tribes on their own outnumbered Quraysh and you think how did this happen? How did all of these become Muslim all of these be the allies of Muhammad all of these? How did this just this doesn't make any sense? He's How did he become such a great king? And Al Abbas was a good friend of

00:26:37--> 00:27:14

his was the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he's trying to like, push him push him push him to to realize already realize been 20 years, man. And he says to him, how is referred How was sulayem? How is this? Who are these who are those? And then he said, man, his kingdom has become great the kingdom of Mohammed. And so our best said, I always think of this narration versus to him in the hand Naboo. This is not kingdom. This is prophethood. Like what's so hard to understand. This is not something that we've ever seen anything like it in all of human history. You know, you reuniting Arabia hadn't happened. 2000 years, by the way, the Ellis Island did it in a few

00:27:14--> 00:27:32

short years. So he's telling him in the head Nobu. This is prophethood. He's a prophet. It's not a riddle. And then finally, 20 years later, right at that moment, it's building up to this moment. And when he tells him, it's prophethood, he says, yeah, it's profitable. And he accepts him as a prophet, then it becomes Muslim.

00:27:34--> 00:27:39

Interestingly, maybe this is one of the reasons why I was a fan is the perfect example.

00:27:42--> 00:27:44

Actually, we'll come back to the it's more relevant to the next verse.

00:27:47--> 00:27:51

And so they said, Wayne Cannella, Haldane, he, you know,

00:27:53--> 00:28:13

laws preferred you over us. That's the basic truth like how did you you only now you're realizing that some people are just like that some people will just won't get it. You know, as I think it was Malcolm X, Ohio law who said we will, we'll meet at a mutual understanding later, like, let's just let it be Let bygones be bygones. We will understand each other at a later time.

00:28:15--> 00:28:18

And so you just have to live and let live some people just their time has not yet come.

00:28:20--> 00:28:31

And it may come to you. And even if it hasn't come now, but they said Wayne couldn't Ella Haldane and we were certainly sinful. That's what he's finally Salam wanted. He said to them, allowed him to do you know, do you recognize

00:28:33--> 00:28:34

what you've done

00:28:35--> 00:29:02

to yourself, and they say, I'm going here now in Quinella, haltian, we were sinful, we were absolutely wrong. And so when a person admits they're wrong, because I won't come back to this point, I wanted to speak about it further later. But there's no time when a person admits they're wrong. That is tilba. You know, if you admit it to yourself, it's terrible between you and Allah. And if you admit it to people, the people that you've wronged, then that is your Topo with the people. When a person does that.

00:29:04--> 00:29:08

Then they are eligible for being forgiven.

00:29:09--> 00:29:27

Allah will forgive them. And if it's involving your rights or the rights of a person, that person is encouraged to forgive them. No, we can say it's mandatory. He's encouraged to forgive them because we're only obligated with justice and justice getting your rights back.

00:29:28--> 00:29:37

Anyway, long discussion but we are in person when should you forgive someone when they own their sense, and they genuinely seem to recognize it and it's gravity.

00:29:40--> 00:29:59

That's when you should forgive them because the Prophet SAW Selim said in some say this, the words of Mr. Wood unedible tilba. Someone say Mr. ordinario from the province that is although Sadam Some say it's my golf, it is strictly the words of Mr. Earley, that regret is repentance. And so they said when could nella Katene we are sinful. We

00:30:00--> 00:30:00


00:30:02--> 00:30:11

and so in these last few minutes usually Sam says to them what letter three valid communium There is no pet three I'm going to translate to three was condemnation

00:30:12--> 00:30:21

upon you today I will not condemn you today el fit hola hola como, Allah will forgive you are who are hamara Haman and He is the Most Merciful

00:30:24--> 00:30:56

of those who show mercy. So, here he is again right Yusuf alayhi salam after being thrown into prison for years, he, he doesn't hesitate to unconditionally give them this, you know, detailed plan to save them from famine, even though they threw him in prison or left him in prison. And even though they were disbelieving, you know, non believing people, he still gave that to them. And same thing here now, it's happening again, after being thrown into the bottom of a well by his own brothers, when he had full power to avenge himself.

00:30:58--> 00:31:23

He did not hesitate to tell them letter three Valley camaleon There'll be no blame upon you today, you have a federal law with Dr. Hatem and Hotjar teacher have you the whole lot. He says every time I resorted to so far, I think about that, and I feel just so small, like how tiny we are, you know, in our ability to conquer our vengeance, our appetite for vengeance, our you know, our, you know, this is not even justice. This is like just, you know,

00:31:24--> 00:31:26

magnanimous character.

00:31:29--> 00:31:42

And so he just let it go. So back to Abu Sufian. So I can I can work my way to closing. It was Sofia, and when he wanted to become Muslim, he felt that the Prophet SAW Selim was not going to accept it from him, it's too late, not just gonna let it go.

00:31:44--> 00:31:57

And so I leave now the pilot the prophets because in LA Sato salaam, he said to Abu Sufian, listen, go to the Prophet SAW Salem Miniclip le YG from the direction of his face, meaning come to him from the front come to Him face to face.

00:31:59--> 00:32:10

You know, even if I mentioned this incident mad and it's elsewhere as well. Come to him face to face come to him like a man basically, you remember we said if someone comes to you, regretful he has come to him like a man

00:32:12--> 00:32:13

and say to him,

00:32:14--> 00:32:16

What uses brothers

00:32:17--> 00:32:18

said to use of

00:32:20--> 00:32:53

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Alena and Cannella healthy by Allah has preferred you over us say that to Mohammed now and then I'll even if Allah said what he gave me explanation why you should say that to him. He said, fair enough. Who Laniado Hakuna. I hadn't Santa Pola mean who because he Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam will not accept that anyone be better in statement and him? Meaning he will not be satisfied that use of Ali salaam outdid him.

00:32:56--> 00:33:14

And so that was a few and goes and says to him, Allah has preferred you over us. And we were on doors. And so the Prophet SAW Selim responded by saying what what do you smell asylums at his rallies? Letter three VALIC Julio milfit. Hola. Hola, como como Rami, there'll be no condemnation upon you today.

00:33:15--> 00:33:27

May Allah Allah will forgive you and he's the Most Merciful of those who show mercy, the wisdom Valley or their level and also the, you know, the graciousness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his you know, his drive to not be outdone and played.

00:33:29--> 00:33:41

And now it's our turn right? We have to feel that it's necessary to become followers, better followers of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this regard, those that have hurt us

00:33:43--> 00:34:14

a few quick things quickly, and I'm done. Number one is we have to be very careful. With demonizing the brothers I used to have a Salam and any people in the past in general, you know, like after Yusuf has forgiven them and after their father and a few verses has pardoned them and after we know yellow federal law who like them Allah will forgive you so just said that I may sit down there's no room to condemn them anymore or speak bad about them anymore, it's over it's done. We have to be very careful about this like you take the lesson from the story and you move on

00:34:17--> 00:34:21

and this applies to all individuals that have reformed and all nations you know,

00:34:22--> 00:34:45

like when we speak about benefits that are easy all benefit so I utilize and this will have I would say you think that all this our qualities are theirs and all the sweet qualities of your are yours you will fall into all the same mistakes that they fell into. And so in order for you to make sure you're not falling into the same mistakes as others you need to make sure you don't lightly handle their names and your criticism of them.

00:34:47--> 00:34:51

Letter three Valley Community Oh yeah, use of an A Salam said

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

today there'll be no blame on you. What does that mean? Today onwards doesn't just mean today, right? Meaning starting today.

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

If you have faced your crime and a person should only face their crime once, that's a huge lesson. You know, the Prophet SAW Selim said on one of your slaves has committed fornication, you know, perform the flogging. Of course, it's not just for the government, right? But perform the flogging. They get whipped.

00:35:18--> 00:35:25

He said, foliage, let her let him flog her while you said and let him not.

00:35:28--> 00:35:31

You said it in the same word in the eye. Let him not condemn her.

00:35:33--> 00:35:52

And how do you do that? Just think about a bunch of things. Number one, this was destined right all of us are inevitably going to find a certain amount of sins as part of the product of Allah azza wa jal for wisdoms. We're not justifying it, but still not outside of other there's another element here. You know, number two, this is a very difficult desire that, you know, we all struggle with. And so,

00:35:54--> 00:36:29

you know, be sympathetic a little bit at the end of the weakness element of it. Also, she already got punished, and that was the punishment, the punishment was flogging. It was not flogging and condemnation. And so don't add to the punishment of Allah xojo. Number four, they said, consider the fact that, you know, a person may have already regretted it before the punishment even took place, the punishment was procedural, maybe for benefits beyond this individual like, you know, deterrence mechanism for the rest of society. But that person may have already repented, even before the punishment took place. And so how dare you speak to them that way, when they could be someone that

00:36:29--> 00:36:38

is pure and reborn, picked up by their repentance in the sight of Allah azza wa jal, also, they said, Do not be critical of people that commit these sins, and, you know, condemn them, because

00:36:39--> 00:36:47

bad news sells basically is what they were trying to explain. News could spread about this incidence of people that didn't even know about this incident yet.

00:36:49--> 00:36:54

Don't perpetuate the cycle of you know, normalizing sin.

00:36:56--> 00:36:56


00:36:58--> 00:37:14

ultimately, all of these reasons are to protect you from being too casual and real, not realizing that you that critical person could fall into the exact same sin because you let your tongue speak to critically about those who fell into it.

00:37:15--> 00:37:18

So he said now onwards, I will not speak about it anymore.

00:37:20--> 00:37:57

And then he mentioned to them Allah is the most merciful, Peter, that's what really matters most. When you forgive people, you're forgiving people. Not just so you can go to sleep at night, live and let live and be comfortable for yourself. And you know, I want to forgive them. For my sake. I hear people saying that sometimes. You I'm sure you have as well. No, you're forgiving them because you want Allah to forgive you or who are Hamra. I mean, it's almost like a useful lesson. I'm saying, Allah will forgive you, and be confident that he'll forgive you and you know, continue your reform, continue down that road. And also, Allah will forgive you and I have forgiven you out of hopes that

00:37:57--> 00:38:14

Allah will forgive me. And so it may seem out of place at first glance, but this is the perfect way to seal that sentence. Because they still have work to do, which is to ensure they have gotten Allah's forgiveness and mercy which is most important. And also it is to say that I too, am seeking Allah's mercy the same way you are.

00:38:15--> 00:38:19

And so I'm not guaranteed it either. And that is why I'm forgiving you.

00:38:21--> 00:38:29

Because what matters most is that we work towards the best ending, because that's what the Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us in NEMA llamada will how our team

00:38:31--> 00:38:37

actions are ultimately judged by how they are sealed. And so I'm sorry if we went a little bit over.

00:38:39--> 00:38:49

Just leave you with that final lesson that forgiving people as for Allah, ultimately, not just for peace of mind in this short, you know, life of the dunya

00:38:50--> 00:39:04

or to be celebrated as the forgiving big hearted person here. No, it is for Allah. And at the same time, remind people that even though they were forgiven by others, continue to, you know, improve themselves and

00:39:05--> 00:39:10

purify themselves to earn ultimately Allah's forgiveness, which is the most important of all.

00:39:11--> 00:39:17

That's all we'll leave it there Subhanak long Hyundai Shinola in Ireland and SFO going to lakes I don't want to live rocket
