comments By praising, exalting and glorifying Allah subhanho wa Taala who is our maker, the Supreme King of all kings, to whom all Dominion all power and all mine belongs to the how La quwata illa Billah a bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah subhana wa tada and that Mohammed said a long while in early usnm is his slave and messenger. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to show me his choices, the blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of them.

00:01:58--> 00:02:22

My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, first and foremost, advise myself and then all of you all present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to be conscious of him sort of Hannah Montana, during every single second of our lives, if we wish to attain success in this world, as well as the hereafter May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all from the people of taqwa. And may He make us from the victorious and successful ones. I mean,

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

if you want to analyze the Nobel for iron,

00:02:28--> 00:03:18

you can easily come to a conclusion that it consists of a number of stories, a number of stories, stories of the mBiA Masato solemn stories of the nations of the past, stories of tyrants perhaps ruled over the number of stories and what's the purpose behind the loss behind him or Tyler, mentioning the stories in the novel for this purpose has been mentioned by himself Allah azza wa jal in Surah, Yusuf i 111, the ayah that I recited at the inception law called the canopy Casa kasasa him Eva. Indeed in their stories, they are lessons, but also only lil Alba. They are lessons for people of intellect for those who possess intellect for those of understanding that our lessons. So

00:03:18--> 00:03:51

in all these stories that Allah subhanho wa Taala has mentioned in the noble Koran, there are a number of lessons to be derived from. And when you look into the sciences of Tafseer, let me mention something beautiful each time, just as how each time when a diver dives into the ocean, he comes out with pearls and valuable things at times. Likewise, the scholars of Islam each time they dive into the Koran, they come out with beautiful pearls, a never ending supply of pearls. And likewise, another example can be given.

00:03:54--> 00:04:10

You can think of us as gardeners, as gardeners, and you can think of me as a very lazy, perhaps not that talented gardener gardener with that not with not that great of a green thumb perhaps

00:04:11--> 00:04:54

where we gardeners we go into this beautiful garden that has been landscaped in an amazing way, by a selection of soil, by a pious predecessors by the scholars of the past, by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam himself, this beautiful garden of knowledge, this beautiful garden of the sciences of Tafseer the sciences of Heidi, there's so much to be derived from we go into this garden, and we come out with flowers we come out with roses with bouquets of flowers to give you all this garden is beautifully landscaped. We just go in there we pick the flowers and we come out. This is the example we can give. When we talk about Pepsi. We go into the books of Pepsi because today it's very rare

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

that someone comes up with their own sale. Because to be amorphous, sell the animal

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

Have conditions, there's a list of conditions that need to be fulfilled for you to be an individual who can perhaps commentate on the normal course.

00:05:09--> 00:05:17

So, in general, what people do is that they go back to the classical books of Tafseer because there are a number of words put forward by

00:05:18--> 00:05:44

scholars of the past. They go into the FRC and they come out with amazing pearls to share with you all and these pearls are disseminated. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open the doors of understanding for all of us. So inshallah Allah for today is what we're going to go into one of these stories, and not just any of these stories, the most beautiful of all the stories of all the stories mentioned in the noble Koran, the most beautiful of all of them.

00:05:45--> 00:06:00

And I'm sure most of you must be aware of the story that I'm going to talk about it is the story of use of Allahu salatu salam. Now obviously, we can't cover the whole story of use Valley salatu salam. So we look at touching on a few lessons that can be derived from the story of use valleys that were set up.

00:06:01--> 00:06:32

And when we say that the story of use of Alexander wassalam is the most beautiful of all stories in the noble Koran, it is not a statement. It is a statement of Allah subhanho wa Taala who states at the very inception of surah use of national napoo so I laid the accidental cosas naku I like the accidental apostles, or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we narrate unto you the most beautiful of stories, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to mention the amazing story of use of alayhi salatu salam.

00:06:34--> 00:06:35

So surah Yusuf

00:06:36--> 00:06:45

is a MKI surah is a mucky surah and this is upon the consensus of the scholars of Pepsi.

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

You have the sutras of the noble Koran and they have been categorized mainly into two categories. We have sutras that are madonie and sutras that are making sutras that are maddening and sutras that are murky.

00:07:01--> 00:07:43

There are a number of opinions as to how the sutras have been categorized. One opinion is that if a surah is classed as a mucky, surah, then the surah was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he was in Makkah, and if so, if a surah has been classified or categorized as a man in a surah, then that particular surah was revealed to the professor of law. When he was sent him when he was in Medina, this is one opinion. There's another opinion, which is the more mainstream opinion and that opinion is that the mucky surahs are the sutras that were revealed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam covenant he's wrong before he Jura be the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in

00:07:43--> 00:07:46

Mecca or Medina, wherever he was, it was before he drowned.

00:07:47--> 00:08:23

There is no precise location indicated indicated when we say McKee surah. What we mean here is that these are the sutras that were revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Cabell hegira. And then within the sutras or the sutras abbreviate, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that then he dropped after the heater of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to Medina, even if the sutra was revealed in boys, or perhaps in some other location, it does not matter if it is classed as a madonie surah. It is a sutra that was revealed after the heater of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, then there is another opinion that states that if a surah is classed as a mucky surah, then that surah was

00:08:23--> 00:08:26

revealed directly to the people of matcha

00:08:27--> 00:09:14

directed at the people of Mecca. And that's why at times you would observe that most of the Mexicans who rose or the mactan ayah, even the Iet categorized in such a manner, you will notice that those is generally commence as Yeah, you harness all mankind, oh, mankind in a very generic way in a very general way. But on the other hand, according to this final opinion, they state that the mother needs to Ross or the surahs revealed directly to the people of Medina. And that's why you would observe that the ayah or the sutras that were revealed or basically the mother knew sutras generally commence Yeah, you held Edina Oh, you have brought in a man oh the people of a man. So, this is a

00:09:14--> 00:09:32

little insight into the categorization of surahs nonetheless surah Yusuf according the consensus of the scholars, it is a mucky surah it is a mucky surah and this surah was revealed unto Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:09:33--> 00:09:45

before the hegira. And during a specific period, it was during the year known as Amel hosen, the year of grief the year of sorry, the year of sorrow and distress.

00:09:47--> 00:09:48

Now in general in those days,

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

they had no proper ways of perhaps calculating or keeping track of time. So in general, they would remember months and years

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

Based on important incidents and events that took place during a given year, so this particular year I'm a husband was known as someone who's in the year of grief, the year of sorrow, the year of distress, because two very tragic incidents took place that literally shook Russell Isola Harley Davidson. One was the death of his uncle obatala, who was a boulder of support for a supervisor of Amara SLM, and the other incident was the passing away the demise of his beloved wife, her digerati about one huh? So it was after these two incidents, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this particular Surah Surah Yusuf, which is a surah that discusses the story of the brother of Azerbaijan, a long

00:10:44--> 00:11:30

winding road it was lm his name was Yusuf and he was put through so many trials, as we will see in a while in sha Allah, Allah so many trials, so it was in a way to console was utilized for a long while, who it was lm and to show him that the MBI Lima Salatu was Salam. They are generally put through trials by Allah Subhana, which I had, because most of the lines had a long line, it was sent them was really shaken after these two incidents after losing his uncle, and after losing his beloved wife. So it was at that point when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this amazing surah to console Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to, you know, give him reassurance to strengthen him

00:11:30--> 00:11:38

to build his confidence. The surah was revealed unto the supervisor Allahu Allahu Allah said, the sutra discusses the story of

00:11:40--> 00:11:47

a khadeem. A noble person, Kareem even a Karim even a Kareem in a carry.

00:11:49--> 00:12:21

The story is about a noble individual who was the son of a noble individual who was the son of a noble individual who was the son of a noble individual. The story discusses Yusuf Alayhi, Salatu was salam, who was none other than the son of yaku alayhi salatu was salam, who was the son of his half alayhi salatu salam, who was the son of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam Karim even a Karim Karim even mcherry amazing lineage Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam.

00:12:22--> 00:12:25

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala he states in the noble Koran.

00:12:44--> 00:12:44

How

00:12:49--> 00:12:57

many wakulla napoo so la came in about a minute a bit a bit further.

00:12:59--> 00:13:07

And in each and every story of this of these stories that we narrate to you or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in

00:13:08--> 00:13:47

from the news of the MBI and he was salat wa salam they are for what for what purpose, to give you reassurance manifest beterbiev to give you strength to console you, Allah subhanho wa Taala he states in the novel, super useful was revealed and also vice versa, to reassure him to give him strength to console him, son, Allahu Allahu Allah, he was said. Now moving on to the story. The story is full of a number of trials. He talks about a number of trials that use volume Serato ceram, was put through by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And these trials start from

00:13:48--> 00:14:14

a very young age for Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, his brethren, they harbor jealousy against him, they plot against him the plan against use of Alan Serato, Sara, then they go dump him in the bottom of a well in the bottom of an abandoned well, then he is sold as a slave in the marketplace, a free man one day, and the next day is sold as a slave. Just imagine,

00:14:15--> 00:14:59

in an unknown foreign strange land, use Valley salatu salam, and then what happens he is purchased by the minister or the governor of that particular land and is taken to the house of the minister in the house, what happens after a period of time, the wife of that individual tries to seduce you severely. So that was another huge trial. And then after that, he was thrown into prison, innocent, free of all crime, but he was thrown into prison unjustly and from prison. The next trial was that he was put in charge. He was put in charge of ruling that land, the huge trial about last time and after that

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

The next trial was the fact that he was reunited with his family. It was a trial because after all that happened. He could have enacted revenge if you wish to. He could have taken, you know, retribution against his brother and against his family, which he did not to say that he stated that the three ballet come in young, he showed them his magnanimous nature, he forgave all of them. So these trials, amazing trials, one after the other, he passed all of these trials with flying colors with flying colors. And

00:15:36--> 00:15:57

he passed away, he passed on to Allah subhanho wa Taala, as a Muslim, submitting unto the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala, and from amongst the righteous from the righteous ones, and this was in accordance to the dua that he made unto Allah subhanho wa Taala taken him in a milky white alum turned him into a Heidi.

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

He went out until when he was

00:16:01--> 00:16:06

a Muslim oheka Nabi Saleh. He made a go and Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:16:08--> 00:16:26

Oh my Lord, You have given me mineral milk, something from the kingdom or from perhaps a hierarchy. Okay, well, Island three means that we in the hobby and you have taught me the interpretation of dreams, while Anthony meant that when

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

he was the Originator of the heavens and the earth, and W if you do neola You are my protector.

00:16:35--> 00:16:40

And if you do well, in this world, as well as the Hereafter, the wolf Ernie muslimah

00:16:41--> 00:17:03

make me pass away make me die as a Muslim and resurrect me amongst the righteous ones. Allah subhanho wa Taala answered this door of Yahoo of use of Alexandra to Sarah, he answered this drug use violence that was around and he passed away submitting to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he was raised from amongst the righteous.

00:17:05--> 00:17:48

All these tests one after the other. And from this, we understand there's also Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salatu salam, they are the ones tested the most of last time and use violence that was Salaam history is full of all of these tests. But before we go into any of the tests, we would like to highlight that the most trial, the most trying of all of these trials, the most. Hardest of them all was the trial, where the wife of that particular governor or ruler tried to seduce Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, because according to the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The narration goes along the lines of these words from the biggest trials and temptations that are oma

00:17:48--> 00:18:15

the boom of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is being put through is the trial and temptations of women. Shere Khan uses them. So likewise, in this particular juncture, it was that particular trial that was so hard upon use of salatu salam, but yet he passed it with flying colors. Before we discuss that prior we would like to establish the innocence of use of Allah who salat wa salam, and the number of proofs and evidences that we can bring forward for that starting off with number one.

00:18:17--> 00:18:20

The fact that chef on his Whoa,

00:18:21--> 00:18:45

he's our sworn enemy. He's Whoa, he promised that I will misguide all of them, I will try my level best to misguide all of them who leave them all astray. But there was an exception. There are certain slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That chiffon cannot they attach as he states in as Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions his statement in the Noble Quran. Allah forbid Exotica obion

00:18:47--> 00:18:50

He says, by your might and by your power.

00:18:53--> 00:19:34

I will lead them or Australia. I will leave them or Australia except for those slave for those slaves of yours who are sincere for those slaves of yours who are sincere the ones whose hearts are full of a class I cannot touch them, but the rest I will lead them astray I will try my level best to lead them astray. So from this we understand that chiffon II cannot touch those who are sincere the ones who have the floss and their hearts and Allah subhanho wa Taala. He testifies in regard to the sincerity of use of Allah He Serato Sarah in Surah Yusuf Allah azzawajal he states delicately Nasri fan who sued our fracture in

00:19:35--> 00:19:37

flossing in the home in

00:19:38--> 00:19:46

Canada the Nasri fan who sued our fracture. And we likewise we awaited returned away a suit our fracture

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

we turned away in the sense even in morality all of this returned it away from use of alayhi salaatu wa Salaam in the human scene. Indeed he was from our sincere

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

slaves. So Allah subhanho wa Taala testifies in regard to the sincerity of use of Allah salatu salam. So it is established if an individual is sincere, if an individual has a class, then shaitaan cannot touch that individual. So number one shaitaan had no way of touching us via salatu salam, because he was a very sincere individual. From this, we learn a lesson that we also have to strive to inculcate this particular quality, the concept of flaps, whatever we do, we do for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Be it a small dB, it's something huge, whatever we do, we do it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala because there's no point. I mean, you're doing a huge mammoth of a deed.

00:20:41--> 00:21:21

And if there's no sincerity in it, it's not going to be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala it can be colossal, it can be the size of mountains, it can be a huge deal with the whole world is talking all about it, but it there is no sincerity in it, then that's it. Once the hype dies down, that deed also vanishes away. But on the other hand, if you did that deed for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala it does not even have to be that colossal. It was if it was even a tiny date that you gave out to someone, if you did it sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala the no doubt is going to be accepted by a larger budget. It is going to be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So whatever

00:21:21--> 00:21:33

we do, we do it sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala thereby saving ourselves from the traps and snares of shaitaan May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us for moving on to the second evidence. And this was when

00:21:35--> 00:21:37

that particular trial was taking place.

00:21:39--> 00:22:03

What happened Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, he ran to the dome. When the woman of the house tried to seduce him. He ran to the dome that was behind hotel I stayed on was Taco Bell. He raised the dough, he sprinted to the dub, both of them she was running after him. And she grabbed that his shirt, she yanked his shirt, it towed from behind the toe from behind. And when they reach the dough

00:22:05--> 00:22:16

the master of the house, ie the husband of the woman was standing by the dough, and there was this other individual another family member with him at that time.

00:22:17--> 00:22:28

So that individual that family member, he said, As Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the noble Koran in Cana pamesa, who put them in coolin for sadakazu a woman Academy.

00:22:29--> 00:22:54

He started off by saying, if his shirt, his tone from the front, then she your wife is speaking the truth, and he is from the liars. But on the other hand, and this he brought it as a second sentence to add some emphasis to it. He stated because it was obvious It was pretty apparent, it was clear that use of the Lambs shirt was intact in the font.

00:22:55--> 00:23:11

He went on to say but on the other hand, if his shirt is torn from behind, then he is speaking the truth and she is from the lions. They inspected the shirt of use of Allahu salatu salam, and they found the shirt of use of Ali salatu salam to be intact

00:23:12--> 00:23:20

from the front, but on the other hand, when they looked at the back of the shirt of use of it salat wa salam, it was in shreds, it was torn.

00:23:21--> 00:23:51

So from this was clearly understood that she was the mischief maker, and she was guilty of what she had done. And us filing so that was around was free of all accusations. This is evidence number two. The third evidence is obviously the confession of the woman herself. Later on towards the end of the story, she herself she confesses against herself. She states were politeama to the Azizullah. We'll call it Mottola as easy and hassle hoc. And

00:23:52--> 00:24:03

he were in the hole Amina Sonia, the wife of this disease of this governor of this ruler, if you will, she states the minister, she states that

00:24:04--> 00:24:29

Allah has Hasselhoff, now the truth has manifested itself and araga to one we've said, I am the one who tried to seduce him. I'm the one who try to seduce him once in a while, I mean aside their pain. Indeed he is from the ones who are truthful. So we have these evidences that prove the use of Elisa to Salaam was innocent, free from all crimes, a prophet from the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:24:31--> 00:24:38

But from all of this, we also learn an important lesson. And that is in regard to holla.

00:24:39--> 00:25:00

Look, even Chopin, he sees the opportunity when a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala was in seclusion with a woman. Then what about you and I, what about you and I, and this is why I sort of liked that a lot while he was in them clearly states that it is not permissible for a man to

00:25:00--> 00:25:38

be alone with a woman. It is not permissible. For if a man and woman are alone, if a man and a woman are alone, then the third companion for them is Chevron. Chevron comes in and starts to beautify them for themselves. Basically, he makes the woman look even more beautiful or even if she's ugly, she may be extremely ugly, but chiffon will make her look beautiful for the man. He adores him and that's what he does in genuine. He adores the pathways of sin. He adores his snares his pits so that we fall into them so that before pray for those snares May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all.

00:25:39--> 00:25:41

May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all.

00:25:42--> 00:26:25

shefa this is what he does. So we need to study the traps of shaitaan study the snares of the devil, and stay away from them Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. There is one particular Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is reputed to have said that it is better. It is better for a person to be nailed the middle of his head to be nailed on the middle of his head. Then for him to touch a strange woman. It is better for him to be nailed in the middle of his head with a long nail with an iron nail with an iron needle along the lines of his words welcome upon salatu salam, it is better for him than for him to touch the hand of a strange woman or to touch a strange

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

woman Dr. McCall AlLahi salatu salam. So we must be extremely careful that we stick to the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we do not fall prey to the traps of shaitaan This is one thing that we learn from the story that took place between us Farley salatu salam and this particular woman. The next important lesson that is highlighted here is to use varicella to Sudan because at the beginning of this story, what this woman she does is she looks the dose she boasted as well.

00:26:55--> 00:27:12

As Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned the noble noble cause in what Pilate hated it. She doesn't boast that it was and not just knocks the dose she doubled boats the dose, and then she says high tech Comm. She calls him to words.

00:27:13--> 00:27:42

And she at that time was the mistress. She was in power. She was the lady of beauty. She had authority. She was rich, and who was used by Lisa that was lame. At that point. He was no one other than a slave who had to listen to him who had to listen to her. At that point. She used her authority, she used the power and she ordered him come to me all the time. And look at the reply of use value. So that was around in another era. It has been said that she said

00:27:43--> 00:28:28

I'm ready for you. I am ready for you. She is saying, Look at what carnal desires lust makes an individual to look at the low that she's took to me Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all, when she's telling him to come to her. And then because of the topo that he had in his heart, because of the flash that he had in his heart because of the fear and the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he had in his heart, he stated call him the law. Allah forbid May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect me to be la palma de la in la hora be absent MSI in the hula, you flip Oh boy, in the who wrote Bs and Ms. Why, indeed my master in the sense your husband has made my state good here. How

00:28:28--> 00:28:42

can I be training him? You are his wife in the hula, you play football on a moon. And indeed, the wrongdoers will never be successful. They're never ever going to be victorious. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from the victorious ones I mean.

00:28:44--> 00:29:13

So he immediately stated this, and at that point, he knew that the donors were double bolted, but after all, what happened was debacle. He sprinted towards the dough and she was running after him. He knew that that there was bolted, obviously going to make his way out. But he ran to the dome. He placed his trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. He knew that Allah subhanho wa Taala would make a way out for him. As far as the budget statement noble for a while May I tell

00:29:14--> 00:29:58

you from who has born, the one who places his trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala for what hospital then he is sufficient for him. Woman tequila hija Allah Masada The one who fears about the one who is conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala hE hE eila Houma Raja He will make a way out for him from every predicament from every problem, but it is upon you my dear brother, to place your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to take the initiative just as how Yusuf Ali's not was surrounded, he moved from A to B and Allah took him from B to Z a lot to came from b2c here. He started off from the world, but Allah azza wa jal made him to rule Egypt. He brought his family back to him and Allah

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

subhanho wa Taala just made

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

for, you know, in an amazing way, because he placed his trust in Allah Subhana Medina use value. So that was Sam. He feared Allah subhanho wa Taala. Yes, he was in a situation where shaitaan was trying to get the upper hand have a seclusion with a woman. But it was beyond his control. He was a slave at that point, he was a slave. At that point, it was not within his control, she locked the dose that was also beyond his control. And that's why he placed his trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. But look at us how many of us today, we there are so many situations that are within our control within our control. By extension, this rule of halwa even applies

00:30:41--> 00:31:12

to the digital walls that surround an individual when he or she is in a WhatsApp conversation. By extension, the rule of halwa even applies to the digital walls that protect you. Within a Facebook chat, it is not permissible for you to be in a WhatsApp conversation, or alone with a strange woman chiffon can come in, he can make those images look more beautiful. And by accident.

00:31:13--> 00:31:56

The kissing emoji might come there. And something can happen. chiffon can bring about so much of fitna just like that shaitaan is waiting for the opportunity. But many of us we take it very lightly. We take it so lightly. And that's when we notice there are times what happens just as we said, shaytaan adorns chiffon beautifies there are a number of people who are perhaps fallen into illicit relationships, the fallen into Xena, and then obviously they have to make it halaal. So they go ahead, perform the Nika but after the nikka they are disgusted. They're like you know, I thought she was beautiful. But then she is not beautiful anymore because it was she upon who was beautifying

00:31:56--> 00:32:35

her for you. It was shavon who was beautifying that scene for you. It was shared on that was beautifying that Xena for you. And that's why you felt it so tasteful and you wanted to enter into it, but the minute you did, you started to feel Oh, why did I even you know come in here, why am I even here, this is how it is in general, the pleasures of this dunya are short lived, and especially in regard to sins. They are extremely, extremely short lived. But on the other hand, the pleasure that the pleasures that await us in Alaska, they are permanent, they are holiday they are forever and ever. So let us wait for that. And let us curb our desires and keep all of those desires at

00:32:35--> 00:32:44

check by fearing a loss of Hannah Hosanna and by adopting taqwa by placing our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and steering away from the straps of Chevron.

00:32:46--> 00:33:26

The other ayah that talks about this particular incident between us Paris ratusan has been Allah subhanho wa Taala. He states what are called the Mitsubishi Warhammer beha Lola Ravana Robbie, that indeed she designed him who is the wife of that particular minister, she desired Yusuf Ali salatu salam, she desired him by action she basically locked the door she did all of that were Hama, Bihar and he use violence that was lamb would have would have desired for her Lola ohana Robbie, if he had not seen the evidences from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if he had not seen

00:33:27--> 00:34:08

the proofs and science from Allah subhanho wa Taala. When you go to the books of Tafseer, there are a number of Israelite narrations that we can quote here, there are certain stories that state that he saw a vision of his father, he saw this he saw that but in regard to his authenticity, they all debatable so we rather leave all of that aside, and we can come to one swift conclusion it is that Allah subhanho wa Taala as he states in the noble for iron, he showed his signs to use valleys ratusan by witnessing those signs, he turned away from that sin, and that's why he immediately uttered Harlem Allah, Allah, Allah May Allah subhana wa Jalla In other words, Allah Allah protect me

00:34:08--> 00:34:27

or I seek refuge in Allah azza wa jal, you can translate that in a number of ways. He sought the refuge of a loss of a hand which is at that point, so many respected elders and brothers in Islam. It is fear Allah subhanho wa Taala that does adopt taqwa. And, most importantly, place your trust in Eliza region. At times you are in a situation where you feel perhaps

00:34:28--> 00:35:00

I don't know what to do at this juncture. I don't know how to clarify my doubts in this regard. I don't know whether this is halal or haram. Perhaps you're in a gray area at that time. stick to that which your conscience is telling you. This is a trick that always tells you what is right and what is wrong. But sometimes we go against that trick that tells us we are guilty. We don't want to go ahead but then we disobey that voice that tells us from within this this compass within us that tells us this is right. This is wrong. Perhaps we shouldn't be doing

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

This you should turn away, maybe you should just head back. But sometimes we this obey that voice that voice calls out towards goodness just as how we have a voice that tells us to and prompts us to go towards even this voice that prompts us towards goodness. There's this voice that tells us you know what you're doing is wrong. You need to turn to Allah subhanho wa Tada. Turn to him in Toba. So listen to that voice of goodness that is within you, and turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala before it's too late. With that I conclude We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive us of our sins to accept our good deeds. And just as how unitrust here this message may unite us in the gardens of gentlemen
