00:00:01--> 00:00:03

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa venustiano salli wa sallim ala

00:00:12--> 00:00:16

Nabina Muhammad wa ala Allah He was happy as you may know about.

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

All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless him and all his companions, and to grant us all goodness to protect us in this world and the next, beloved brothers and sisters.

00:00:36--> 00:00:52

As you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed the Prophet Abraham May peace be upon him. And Allah subhanho wa Taala kept Prophethood in his progeny from amongst his children, we spoke about his smile Allah, his solemn and his house, Ishmael and Isaac May peace be upon them,

00:00:54--> 00:01:21

and is Hakone salatu salam had the sun known as Yaqoob jacobellis salam, he was already born in the lifetime of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam had seen him and they have also had some conversations that are made mention of in the Quran. When Allah subhanho wa Taala says that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam advised his heart and yaku both names are included. jacoba is Salam had 12 children

00:01:23--> 00:01:49

Mashallah from those 12 children 10 were from a different mother and two were from a separate mother. The two that were forum a separate mother, we have known the name of one of them, that is Yusuf Ali Salatu was Salam. O the Prophet Joseph May peace be upon him. The other one It is reported that his name was Benjamin orbignya mean, may Allah subhanho wa Taala his peace be upon all of them and upon us as well.

00:01:51--> 00:02:17

The Sahaba of the Allahu anhu asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to tell him or to narrate to them a beautiful story. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed a beautiful story in the Quran. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this nanako Sahaja Yoga Santa loco saucy Bhima hyena Elijah Lupo

00:02:23--> 00:03:10

Fabio de la mina la Vina Fini, we have revealed in the spot on for you a beautiful story, the best of stories that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of and he says, prior to this, you have not known this story, again, we know it because of revelation Subhana. Allah this evening, we read surah two shuara which has many short verses. That is why it takes a little bit longer to recite the surah many short verses all connected to the previous prophets and their nations and what happened to them. And I'm sure a lot of us must have picked up verses that we have been reading in the last few days in the lectures. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us an understanding. So in these verses,

00:03:10--> 00:03:38

Allah is saying that I am narrating to you a beautiful story. And the story starts when this young boy so a dream use of AlLahi salatu wa sallam, he got up one day from his sleep, very happy, and he was excited and he rushed to his father Oh my father, I've seen a dream. It was a unique dream. Because not every day to our children married dreams to us. For us when it's a nightmare narrated to us

00:03:40--> 00:03:48

when it comes to these ambia Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in color you sue Foley Abbey

00:03:51--> 00:03:52

to

00:03:55--> 00:03:56

wash Shams.

00:03:58--> 00:04:02

To whom Lisa God.

00:04:03--> 00:04:40

Remember when Yusuf Ali Salaam went to his father and told him Oh my father, I have seen in my dream that 11 stars and the sun and the moon were prostrating to me. They were in sujood to me, and that is something that was strange. His father was an OB messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala Yaqoob the Prophet Jacob May peace be upon him. He was also known as a Salah L. So whenever the Quran speaks about Bani Israel, it is speaking about the children of Jacob there were 12 of them, and each one of them there was a tribe or a clan that followed from their progeny.

00:04:41--> 00:04:51

So, the father understood immediately that this means there must be some elevated status of this young child, something very high.

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

And it is reported that Allah subhanho wa Taala through revelation had given jacobellis salaam the interpretation of this

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

dream that Allah will raise him very high. grant him Prophethood and make him a person who is extremely high.

00:05:09--> 00:05:50

So immediately the father, because there were so many children, and he was the youngest use of any salatu salam, there was this sibling rivalry. When we say sibling rivalry, we're talking of how brothers and sisters, sometimes they don't get along with each other. They love each other the most. But they're also jealous of each other to a degree that it's not really understood. We need to protect ourselves from this. We need to love our brothers and sisters. And we need to understand from a young age speaking to those who are children, we need to play with each other. Yes, but remember your territory. Remember what is yours, don't intentionally create mischief. And don't try

00:05:50--> 00:06:33

and take what does not belong to you and cause a problem because it leaves a scar in the heart of a little infant or a child that lasts sometimes forever. And shaytan comes in chisel through that little crack and makes it into a crater. May Allah protect us. So we don't want those little games where one is now oppressing the other when a parent notices this, they must intervene and immediately say look, this is your territory, that is your territory, you will not cross the boundaries, because we as far as we can, it is our duty to prevent this type of sibling rivalry. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of how this Nabhi of of his Yaqoob Jacob May peace be upon

00:06:33--> 00:06:39

him. He already noticed that because these This one is the youngest. And I am, you know,

00:06:40--> 00:06:57

very affectionate towards him not that he was not affectionate to the others. I'll explain in a moment what exactly happened but he warned his child his son, yeah, banaya la casa Surah Al Kala Kapha ki doula.

00:06:58--> 00:07:09

Oh, my son, do not relate this dream to your brethren. Because if you do, they may plan a plot against you. They may plan your downfall.

00:07:11--> 00:07:14

And what did he say? In nice shape?

00:07:22--> 00:08:08

Indeed, shape and Satan is a clear enemy against men. Look at the Prophet. He is clearly saying the children are good, youngsters are good, but shaytan is who is bad, and shapen if we allow him to overtake us, he controls us and then we become evil with him. The minute we divorce him, the minute we throw him out, automatically we become better people. Now why is it that they felt this the lesson is for us all who are seated here and for the rest of the oma. When a parent has the first child Mashallah they spoil the child and the child Alhamdulillah is so happy, and they see a lot of love, and they get the toys and everything belongs to that child, Mashallah. Then suddenly come the

00:08:08--> 00:08:50

brother or the sister, the next one. Now, it is not that the parent has stopped loving the oldest child No, but they need to afford the second child similar love. So when the first one sees that the second one is being loved. He feels wrongly that I was never loved Look at this, but he can't remember there was a day when you were alone when you were loved even more than this. So this is shavonne. and thereafter, there is a third child. So every one was a baby at some stage. And normally it's the baby who is the most spoiled. So those who are older, they cannot remember the days when they were a baby when they were spoiled. So they feel that we are not being spoiled. And

00:08:50--> 00:09:12

my father or my mother is favoring this little one, not realizing there was a day when they do a favor. Now if we have to sit and think about it for a few moments, we will be able to identify the devil in our thinking and kick him out. But sadly, people allow that to play on them. They allow it to work on them, they become depressed, they go on to drugs, they go on to this and that and they begin to blame their parents.

00:09:14--> 00:09:23

And they say my father You know, he ignored me He gave preference to this child over that one and so on. Now it is your luck if you are the last born, just your luck, Allahu Akbar.

00:09:24--> 00:10:00

So in this particular case, use of Allah is Salaam being the little one, Mashallah. jacobellis salam had this protective feeling over him. So he says, Oh, my son don't relate. What do we learn from this? My beloved brothers and sisters, we've said it in the past, a piece of good news. don't relate it to anyone and everyone sometimes your own family members can misinterpret it can become jealous of you. This is why we say good news. Thank Allah. Bad news. Thank Allah. You don't have to relate news to everyone. This is a powerful message. Imagine an abbey of Allah is telling his story.

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

Do not be late this thing. It doesn't seem to ask for something important but he knows what he's talking about. Then you get the disobedience of the Father. This little child did not understand the advice of the Father. It happens with us. We do not understand the advice of our parents sometimes when they tell you Look, son, don't do this. Look, my beloved daughter don't do that. We don't understand it. So we quietly behind their backs, we go and do it and we burn our fingers. Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us and this is a lesson we want to take out maximum lessons from Surah Yusuf inshallah. So we find it's important for us to listen to our parents, especially when we were little

00:10:37--> 00:10:59

children growing up we won't see the light in certain things it's exciting to take a candy from the spa as you've entered the shop and you coming out in the exit way the eyelids and quietly put it in your pocket. Then when you caught Mashallah and your father's made to look like a big thief, then you know what it's all about. That can be will Mashallah descend on your bottoms love. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness.

00:11:01--> 00:11:08

So, use of Allah Salaam, innocently, he related the story to his brother's

00:11:09--> 00:11:18

love, because he was excited the young boy seen a dream. And in this dream, I see myself this this this What happened? Now the brothers, they started becoming jealous of him.

00:11:20--> 00:11:50

And we don't know whether or not he even told him that my father said don't tell you. You know, it's a typical response. People come to the doorstep at your home, knock the door, you send the child, tell them I'm not at home. This is not my dad said he's not at all. low alcohol, low alcohol. So this is how we get caught with Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deeper understanding. Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam after he said that the brothers, they looked at each other. And when he wasn't around, they had a little informal meeting where they said,

00:11:52--> 00:11:55

is called Lula yo sofa who have

00:11:57--> 00:11:57

been

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

in Abu

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

Dhabi.

00:12:07--> 00:12:21

Don't you notice that our Father loves Joseph and his brother much more than us yet we are the brothers We are the older brothers, we are the powerful we are this and we are that and indeed our father is a stray clearly astray.

00:12:23--> 00:13:06

And this hatred developed. Why did it develop my beloved brothers and sisters, the lesson is for us. When we do not solve and resolve a problem, it can only become bigger, solve your matters now, today, don't leave them for tomorrow, tomorrow they become bigger. And the following day they get to the extent where you start planning the downfall of someone in a manner that will result in your own downfall. So this is why it's important whether it's a marital crisis, whether it's between brothers and sisters solve it as soon as possible. Have a big heart remember one thing not everybody is the same brothers and sisters are different husband wife different this side of the inlaws and that side

00:13:06--> 00:13:33

the different relatives are different. Everybody is different. We think differently. Yes, we have common factors. Let's build on them where we are different allow them one likes tea one likes coffee. One likes Egyptian tea, the other one likes maybe sulaimani tea so what we can all have all our teas because Allah has provided it for us. We have such a diversity. That's why we start fighting. When we don't have it. It's one tea for the whole family. Joko Mashallah

00:13:36--> 00:14:16

Allah subhanho wa Taala opened our doors. I see everybody's widely lit this evening, Mashallah, Mashallah. So, Allahu Akbar, here, these children, it was left for a while they did not relate the story, they didn't solve the problem, it was easy for them to go to their father, and to find an answer. Oh, our Father, we have a problem. We think you are favoring our child more than us or the other brother more than us. They did not do that. They decided to let it brew. This, again is from a belief from the devil. When we have a problem, go to the source. You've heard something about him, go to him, talk to him. Why do we carry on letting the story brew behind that person's back, go to

00:14:16--> 00:14:48

them directly sorted out, clear your heart, clean it and sleep whilst you are in a condition close to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what happened to these children, they did not approach their father they decided to do the wrong thing. And that was amongst themselves. They allowed it to brew and they agreed. And when they agreed, remember, one person alone cannot plan something big but now you have the support of nine others. There's 10 of you in total. So what did they do? They started planning things. So the worst plan came out okoto Lucifer just kill him.

00:14:49--> 00:15:00

Imagine the first thing kill him murdering your own brother. And this shows us Yakumo a solemn he was an abbey of Allah. He was a person who

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

Who was granted Nobu and Prophet would by Allah subhanho wa Taala. He must have given his children a powerful upbringing, a beautiful upbringing, a Nabhi, bringing up his children who had accepted his message. And here you have shavon interfering. Now what would be the case with our own offspring and with us, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to identify shaytan and to literally kick him out, don't allow him to split us remember.

00:15:29--> 00:15:47

So it also teaches us as parents, that it is not a joke looking after children, we really need to be role models. The other day on Facebook, I had a message where someone said that we have parents whom themselves are busy committing adultery and they expect their children to be on Salah.

00:15:48--> 00:15:59

They are busy with the BB M's and what have you engaging in haram and illicit relations and they are making sure that their children become happy. What do you what kind is this mela says goddess?

00:16:01--> 00:16:32

When are we going to realize that as parents, everything must cut out completely. The relations must be permissible and Hello. Then we make dua for our offspring. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala will answer our call. Because we are becoming older and older as time is passing. We need to be the role models of our children we will leave what type of kids do we expect to have when we ourselves are no role models up to the point of death? We were engaged in mischief. Look at this. May Allah subhanho wa Taala opened our doors and grant us a lesson.

00:16:33--> 00:16:40

So the children first thing they said is let's kill him. Then they had another option Plan B because that's a bit hard.

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

We'll call Rahu.

00:16:43--> 00:17:30

or throw him into a far off land. Take him very, very far away and getting lost there somewhere. Yes, Lola COO, COO, COO, ba de como saw the thing, at least then your father will give you a bit more attention. That's the word used. Yes, Lula Khawaja who have become your father will look at you a bit more and He will give you a bit more attention My beloved brothers and sisters. Remember, equality between children is foreign. It is compulsory, it is a duty Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has warned his companions Once there was a companion who wanted to give a gift to one of his children. And Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Have you given this gift to all your

00:17:30--> 00:18:13

children? And the Sahaba says no, I have and he says In that case, you have one of two options. You either give it to all of them or you do not give anyone we need to understand. Sometimes our own actions create hatred between our own children without us knowing to be just between our children is foreign. Yes, if one deserves merit, because of a deed they have done that the others haven't explained to them, whoever does this will receive a prize and the word when they do that, then the person who deserves the award will deserve it. Why is the others will be working towards it. So they know. But to openly blatantly favor, one over the others is haram. It is not allowed. It is a major

00:18:13--> 00:18:56

sin, not a minor one, it's a major sin. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding. So another point that we also learn from this is when it comes to our children, and we have been granted boys and girls and so on we have been granted offspring May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep them as the coolness of our eyes. One is the importance of being just the other is when admonishing them, you do not admonish one for something he did or she did. And when the other does the same thing, then we let them go by with it and we let them pass and we do not admonish them, that is also favoritism. So there is favoritism in giving and favoritism in admonishing, we need to be balanced.

00:18:57--> 00:19:36

As far as possible, we should be balanced. And it is very important to open the doors of communication with our children in order to avoid this type of error to happen in their lives. So the communication must be open full blast, when I say fully, what we mean is, they must be able to discuss with you whatever has come in their minds, especially on the globe we are living in today, where so many scary things are happening. If your children are not going to confide in you, they will then confide in someone who will give them wrong advice. So they'd rather be having an open relation and say, Dad, you know what, this evening I seen this and this is what happened and that's

00:19:36--> 00:19:59

what happened. And you know this and that and you should not be a person who suddenly blows your top, thank Allah that at least they told you. At least they told you. Now you deal with it professionally in a proper manner. We learn this also from this particular soul. Now there was one you see when you have brothers, there's always one who inclines to you a little bit more sometimes, and they feel a little bit more for you, Allah

00:20:00--> 00:20:14

Sit in the heart. At the end of the day blood is still thicker than water. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us goodness, there's only one thing thicker than blood. And that is La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So

00:20:16--> 00:20:17

the one says, Paul

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

mean,

00:20:26--> 00:20:27

to be

00:20:33--> 00:20:52

fair, any one of them said, Listen, let's not kill him, don't kill us. Would you rather throw him into a well that is unused and cover it up. Maybe a caravan might pass, they'll collect him and take him somewhere else. They'll do whatever they want, but at least we know we wouldn't have killed him.

00:20:53--> 00:21:04

So they hatched the plan. And they went to their father. They spoke about it and they went to their father. Fallujah, abana manakala.

00:21:10--> 00:21:35

They said, Oh, Father, why don't you trust us with Joseph May peace be upon him with us? Why don't you trust us with him? Send him with us. Why don't you trust us with him yet? We are genuine. We are those who are genuine. We are his brothers. We have such a genuine feeling for him. We want to take him sometimes with us. Our own sin Houma Ana Verde, why Allah wa

00:21:36--> 00:21:37

ala moola have

00:21:40--> 00:21:52

sinned him please we begging you tomorrow we're going to play so when we go and play send me mothers will enjoy will do this will play a better sport and we will do what have you and we will come back and inshallah we will protect it.

00:21:54--> 00:22:01

So yaku balasana was very intelligent. He knew there was a little bit of rivalry there. And he looks at them and says,

00:22:02--> 00:22:04

Carla in

00:22:05--> 00:22:07

Allahu Akbar. He says Look, I fear

00:22:09--> 00:22:11

in Neela zanoni.

00:22:12--> 00:22:17

ob it will make me sad if you people taking to make me sad. What?

00:22:19--> 00:22:35

cooler was the boy to man? Movavi? No, I fear that a fox might come in eat him whilst you people are oblivious and you're not really watching him. So this is my fear. So that's why I wouldn't really like to send him with you.

00:22:36--> 00:22:51

Okay, Subhana Allah Nabi of Allah subhanho wa Taala they had an answer. And this is why do not underestimate your children. They will have an answer for you for everything. I always say if the children have an A B could lie to then a B, you think our children are the most truthful.

00:22:52--> 00:23:01

And I have found people who roll their sleeves up and go to the school or the madrasa to beat up the teacher or those that based on what a five year old child has told him.

00:23:03--> 00:23:12

And they think No, I've heard professionals saying children don't lie. What a joke. What a joke. Children are professional liars.

00:23:15--> 00:23:45

They say innocent child, what do they have one lie he the children of today? Those tongs and Jerry's. They watch all day Allahu Akbar. Allah subhanho wa Taala grantors protection it's a fact of life. You find them coming up and really singing such lies that you looking at them and you amazed you also baffled and con. They tell you I saw a car it was moving at 300 K's in our debt. And you're looking at a mission. Yes. Where was it? You know, it was this and he'll come with all the names and absolutely everything but it was all alive.

00:23:46--> 00:23:50

And you're looking at him and thinking how intelligent My child is. May Allah safeguard us.

00:23:51--> 00:23:55

So they had an answer for jacobellis. salatu salam what was the response?

00:23:56--> 00:24:15

They said cannula in the nose button in evil Locascio How can a wolf eat him if a wolf eats him over Fox eats him then we are all there we would be the losers the losses I was just as much as it's yours.

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

Look at the answer. They say if you think you're gonna be at loss, the loss is ours as well. So the father reluctantly allowed them to go.

00:24:26--> 00:24:30

So the Quran says farlam movie.

00:24:37--> 00:24:40

Well, hyena Isla de la tuna.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, when these people hatched their plan, they placed him into a well as though they were playing a game with him. So they told him to take his ship.

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

tofi took it off, and they placed him into the well and they said it's like a Hide and Seek sort of a game. They put him in there, they covered it. We come in just now and they never can

00:25:09--> 00:25:48

imagine their own brother, what type of hearts must they have had? Allahu Akbar, yet ALLAH forgive them later on. Now just the point, what were they trying to do? They were planning the downfall of their brother. Listen very carefully, because according to them, the father was giving more importance to the brother than them. And it was only through this plan, that Allah had something else had they not done this, what the end result was, was not going to come. So Allah says, We revealed We inspired this little child, We inspired him that don't worry. This entire episode will come to an end in a good way.

00:25:50--> 00:25:56

So Allah had come the heart down, not only of use of Allah His Salam but even have jacobellis Allah.

00:25:57--> 00:26:01

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, raja

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

babu, Masha

00:26:06--> 00:26:17

buku they came at night back to their father crying. Imagine crying, they were crying, Allah says yeppoon which means they had tears.

00:26:18--> 00:26:37

I wonder if they were onions or crocodile tears or what have you, Allahu Akbar. But this shows us that sometimes, in order to receive sympathy, people can cry. without us noticing or knowing that this is only a sympathy seeker. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to distinguish

00:26:41--> 00:26:43

in happiness Debbie

00:26:46--> 00:26:47

de matar ina

00:26:49--> 00:27:17

boo. Oh, Father, we were racing. And because he was a little boy, we had to leave Him with all our items and belongings. And as we were racing, and we were slightly oblivious, a fox came in at a fox came in at him. Look, they using the same words that the father had said moments earlier. same word, same plan. They didn't even have to think very far. Now the father knew in our language we would say smelter at what does that mean? He knew something is amiss. Definitely.

00:27:18--> 00:27:19

So

00:27:20--> 00:27:31

he was still speaking to them. And they happen to bring assign given people assign meaning you want evidence or father you want evidence if our tears are not enough, we're going to show you something else. Well,

00:27:33--> 00:28:16

Tommy Lee Damion, Caribe. locomotor, they came, they brought the [???], and they had false blood on the ship. They had cut a little animal. And when the animal was bleeding, they quickly spread the blood on the ship. They said, Why take it to the Father. Now the father is intelligent. If a fox ate the child, the shirt would have been torn, no tail on the shirt. You see, when people want to lie, this is something they forget that the expert would immediately know this is a lie. Like we have emails doing their rounds about the people of art. And they showing you a massive what looks like a massive skeleton, and two small people trying to dig on the side and they say people have art and

00:28:16--> 00:28:49

the Muslims are saying Subhana Allah, not realizing the Quran says there is no trace of the people of God. The Quran tells you that. Now when you look at it, you can go to hoax slayer.com and you will find the giant skeleton is a big hoax. It's photoshopped. You know what photoshopping means? They just edit and cut so there's a skeleton. All they got to do is take a man make him small, as though he's digging right by the head and paste him there. And to you It seemed like the skeleton is big. Not that the men digging was made small.

00:28:50--> 00:29:02

What a joke. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant the Muslims guidance. The point I want to raise from this false blood is if you have a man you will be able to detect what is false and what is not.

00:29:03--> 00:29:06

Yeah levena man who

00:29:10--> 00:29:52

are you who believe if you are conscious of Allah, He will give you the ability to distinguish between right and wrong. He will give you the ability to distinguish between false and what is correct what is true. So we need to be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala many times there are emails floating around there is one which shows the grave of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam way that which has been sent is the grave of Jalaluddin Rumi in Turkey. Go and Google it and see there are no photographs whatsoever of the Cabal of Sharif of Muhammad. sallallahu alayhi wasallam nothing, no, not even one. Nothing. It's sealed completely it is covered with lead. There's nothing

00:29:52--> 00:30:00

no sign from inside or outside knew nothing. Now people get excited and emails do their rounds then they have

00:30:00--> 00:30:27

Another one house of Khadija the Allahu Allah House of Fatima de la this way did they get all this wrong? Allahu Akbar. Imagine the latest camera with the color with a color picture with a resolution far greater than the passport photos we have. And they want to say this is a home in the 1400 years ago, whose camera were they using? Allahu Akbar. And we say Subhana Allah, we start crying. And we forward the message and we write at the bottom. If you don't send it to 10 people, you're going to suffer

00:30:31--> 00:30:49

its effect. Look at this. And our Eman goes higher and lower because of photos that these people are making a fool of us all we and the Muslims are the biggest prey to this type of activity. One wonders why maybe shaytan operates in a very professional way when it comes to us because he knows we have Eman

00:30:50--> 00:31:01

mela save goddess. Remember one thing I always tell people we want to look at signs you know they tell you look at the clouds it says Allah when I was young I'd seen Father Christmas in the clouds also when lights effect

00:31:02--> 00:31:10

if if the Koran which is the living miracle cannot move you What do you think is going to move you these false signs around you?

00:31:12--> 00:31:28

If Allah says acaba de ser Chicago comma when Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam pointed at the moon is split into if that doesn't raise your head, you think a small beetroot written Allah on it is going to move you when the Hindus use the same beetroot and say no, it's written on it.

00:31:29--> 00:32:07

Well, it's a fact. So if that was evidence that your deen is correct, then what about all the Hindus and Christians and everyone else who brought even more clear evidence to show you they've also got root is and they've also got, you know, tomatoes and so on where their gods names are written. So if that is the evidence of a religion being correct, were you supposed to look for tomatoes and booties and eggplants and so on and vegetables? Then what happens to the Quran? Are we putting it on one side? Look at how shaitaan comes to us. We have the most powerful gift. When you read and understand the Quran, you will shake in Malmo, una De

00:32:08--> 00:32:10

La Hoya jeans Polo Boom,

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

Boom imana the true believers are those who when Allah is mentioned, the timbre and when the verses of the Quran are recited, it increases their belief and conviction and they are solidified. This is the front but with us. We will read the Quran item after item after item. It hasn't moved us at all. We still in the clubs, we still in the casinos, we still on drugs, we trying to justify the use of weed and we try to justify everything else that it has no harmony, and the Quran doesn't move us then Chairman, someone shows us a small little piece of potato and we say Suhana for the first time, rather than all the verses of the Quran, which is the living miracle law. And as soon as Mohamed

00:32:56--> 00:33:08

Salah Allahu Allah, he said, Where are we? Where are we? Now? Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant has a deep understanding of this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says a fella tada bonell Amala khudobin

00:33:10--> 00:33:36

are they not going to try to understand and ponder over the verses of the Quran? Or are their hearts sealed by its locks? Maybe the hearts are sealed by the locks. So we need to repent. We need to ask Allah for forgiveness. Yes, there are signs that Allah sends to us. But those signs should make us closer and closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala we should not fall prey to people's dreams and to this and to that, no, we should understand what have I done and you done to

00:33:37--> 00:33:50

educate ourselves regarding the message that Allah has sent in the Quran today I was speaking to a brother I told him brother, the biggest gift you can do yourself is to try and understand Allah His message to you and that is the Quran, then talk about everything else.

00:33:52--> 00:34:09

May Allah subhanahu wa taala open our doors. So getting back to what we were saying. The false hood was easily told very easily, because the father saw this is a shirt, it has no sign of a tooth. It has no sign of being toned, and these people are saying it's blood. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of how he says

00:34:10--> 00:34:14

for Sabo, Jeremy voila,

00:34:15--> 00:34:16

voila.

00:34:18--> 00:34:43

My patience is very beautiful. My patience is very beautiful. Allah has bestowed upon me some patience and Saba. You have taken my son away. I know that you are telling a lie. Allah alone is whom I seek the assistance of regarding what you have described. So he tend to Allah. In the meantime, the scene changes and goes to where this young boy is. After a while.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

The caravan passed later on. It was not such a long time the caravan passed and they sent

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

They're missing just to go and get some water from the well. And when he released or when he rolled down his bucket, what happened?

00:35:10--> 00:35:18

He thought it's filled with water picking, picking it up again. And he looked at it. Carla Boucher Hannah Mona.

00:35:19--> 00:35:22

Oh, good news. This is a little boy.

00:35:23--> 00:35:24

Imagine

00:35:25--> 00:36:01

he wanted water. He's getting a little boy. And he's so excited because he knows first thing comes to their mind. Those people who are crooks and robbers what comes to their minds. When they find something lost property. You have a phone on the floor. A bedroom woman will pick it up and hand it in please. We have an announcement. This is a phone it has been found this that is, What will a cook do? First thing? Anyone looking? No one. No one's looking pretty quickly into your pocket. Now we're gone. And then there's an announcement. Please. Brothers, there's a phone missing so quickly cover the phone. I don't know about you. These are crooks. May Allah safeguard us? They get happy. They

00:36:01--> 00:36:27

get excited when there's lost property, the first thing they think of is how am I going to sell it and how much am I going to make for it? This is why they say when there is hot stock hot stock meaning stock which is stolen. It's sold for next to nothing because people want to get rid of it last October. So the cost of it is 20 rands and this led to Dan's brother just to give it to us take it, then you know there's something fishy, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection. So these people as soon as they picked him up, what did they do?

00:36:29--> 00:36:39

What are some rules? They took him silently as though he was merchandise laquan and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, They then sold him Why shall obey

00:36:41--> 00:37:05

da da da, da da. On that side. The father and the brothers have their own scene. And here they have sold this boy in the market as a slave for a few Durham's a few little coins. What does Allah say da him Mr. Duda, you can count them on your hands. So that means the point I was making moments ago, very cheap, they sold him next to nothing.

00:37:07--> 00:37:21

ofI mean as a dean, they didn't even really want this chat yesterday. Let's get rid of him. So neither did they harm him, nor did they benefit him. But instead they just sold him. So they gained a little bit of wealth from it and they carried on. Now someone purchased him.

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

He was sold in Egypt.

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

Well call

00:37:27--> 00:37:31

me missile alima De Lima

00:37:32--> 00:37:32

is

00:37:39--> 00:38:24

the one who purchased him in Egypt. He told his wife that you know, we should honor this young boy look after him carefully, he will be our servant and so on. He will benefit us. And if we look after him properly, there will be greater benefit. And we can even consider him a son, as it is reported they didn't have their own children. So these people took this child and they began Subhan Allah to use him as a slave in the sense that he they treated him well to a degree at the beginning. and thereafter. The trouble started what was the trouble? Allahu Akbar Allah subhanho wa Taala says Yusuf alayhi salatu wa salam was a very, very good looking young boy, as he grew a little bit older,

00:38:24--> 00:38:29

and he matured into a young man, the woman, very sadly,

00:38:30--> 00:38:33

the wife of this man, she had an evil intention.

00:38:34--> 00:38:49

And she wanted to Leo this young boy for illicit activity, and allow makes mention of this in the Quran. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about it. How there came a time when use of Le Salaam was caught in a fix.

00:38:50--> 00:39:03

He's in the home. The boss is going out. And his wife is now with evil intention lift in the home. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how wah wah

00:39:07--> 00:39:13

wah wah wah wah wah Carla tight Allah, tala ma de la,

00:39:15--> 00:39:17

in Abu Dhabi.

00:39:20--> 00:39:20

In

00:39:22--> 00:39:32

the moon, she locked the doors and she called him through and he says noise I seek protection of Allah, I seek the protection of Allah from this activity.

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

And indeed, your husband has been very kind to me. He has been very good to me.

00:39:40--> 00:39:42

She was not satisfied with that answer.

00:39:43--> 00:39:45

May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us?

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

Once when we were speaking about this particular verse, we drew an example that I'd like to draw here again, it might be slightly different, but it is very important. This was if we'd like to look at it more like a work place.

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

of use of a salon.

00:40:02--> 00:40:09

How many of us in our workplaces, we have a situation that is not ideal for a Muslim, male or female.

00:40:10--> 00:40:22

And how many people have been engaged in illicit activity at the workplace, and how many people have been pressurizing those whom they work for, or those who work for them to engage in this type of behavior.

00:40:24--> 00:40:53

Now, this is mentioned in Surah Yusuf. And the lesson we draw from this is, if we abstain for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala, he will open our doors one after the other. Whereas, if we engage in it, thinking that it is very good, and thinking that we will have amusement and a pastime and enjoyment for a little while, then there is doomed to come unless we repent and engage in the turning back to the right path. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, strengthen our hearts.

00:40:54--> 00:41:08

So it's a powerful lesson for us to learn. And thereafter we have use of AlLahi Salatu was Salam. She rushed behind him, while other ham met me, she made a firm intention, I'm definitely going to get this boy

00:41:10--> 00:41:11

well hum.

00:41:16--> 00:42:01

Had it not been for the signs that Allah had sent this particular boy, and had it not been for the protection of Allah? And had it not been for the fact that the the the master of the home was coming and so on, this young boy would have also fallen into the trap. Allah says, Yes, initially he had planned he made a dua to Allah, Allah protect me. But when the pressure mounted, and it continued, and the door continued knocking, and she continued trying and so on, Allah says, had it not been for our security, to have secured this young boy, he probably would have fallen as well. Apart from this, we learn do not overestimate your piety. No, we need to know that it is through the help of

00:42:01--> 00:42:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala that we will be able to abstain from sin. someone thinks No I won't do this ad will lie. If we are too confident of it without putting a light in the picture and constantly seeking the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala there is a possibility and probability that we may fall into what we never dreamed we would be able to follow, especially when there is persistence and this is why it's important for us to change the environment if we have to. If there is an environment that is negative, not conducive, and there is an environment that is resulting in our spiritual downfall or the possibility of it on a daily basis. Your best bet is to leave that environment and

00:42:39--> 00:42:42

opt for something where inshallah you will be saved from that.

00:42:43--> 00:42:49

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, galley cannot refer to our faction.

00:42:51--> 00:42:55

This is how we chose to save him from evil and from immorality.

00:42:57--> 00:43:03

So Allah subhanho wa Taala saved him from evil and immorality because Allah says he was from amongst the chosen ones.

00:43:04--> 00:43:14

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the race and this is the last thing we will mention tonight. Tomorrow we will continue in sha Allah, Allah says was Baba, Baba, waka that

00:43:18--> 00:43:19

is a da.

00:43:22--> 00:43:44

She ran behind him. And when he got to the door to try and escape she had pulled the shirt and tone it from the back. And when they saw the master, meaning her husband had come in from the door, and he seen a little bit of commotion, she quickly opened her mouth and said, mergers woman leka Zoo in LA. Jana.

00:43:45--> 00:43:54

Annie, what is the punishment that should be served upon someone who's intending to harm your own wife? Look at how she turned the table.

00:43:56--> 00:44:20

Never underestimate sin. Sin is such that the person who called you into it will blame you for it when they are caught. Allahu Akbar. And remember, it will come back to haunt you. It's not worth it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors. Because when sin comes to haunt a person, while law he can do more than any ghost can actually do to haunt you.

00:44:21--> 00:44:30

So yeah, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the miracle that occurred. There was a miracle, a little child that spoke out at that particular time.

00:44:32--> 00:44:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this child and the child says, Allah says shahida shall he do mean Allah? There was a little Shah had a witness that spoke innocent witness

00:44:46--> 00:44:52

in Ghana, Tommy so put them in Coppola for sada Tato who amin al Qaeda been. We're

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

gonna call me super Damion Takeda who Amina saw dp

00:45:00--> 00:45:42

The child says the witnesses. Look at the shirt if it is done from the front, it means she is telling the truth and he is guilty. And if it is told from the back it means she was running behind him. That is why the shirt is torn from the back. So she is a liar and he is telling you the truth. So this man looks at the [???] and he sees it his tone from the back and he knew automatically who is telling a lie and who is telling the truth, but he had to side with his wife May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from siding with those whom we may be related to when they're wrong. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all a lesson inshallah we will continue at that point inshallah tomorrow

00:45:42--> 00:45:53

by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Until then, we say what sallallahu wasallam obata Kalyan Amina Mohammed Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah home will be handy to Allah, Allah, Allah and and Asuka wanna to wake
