old price and thanks to Almighty Abbas and mozzarella. We asked him the Lord of all worlds the exalted to shower his choices of blessings and salutations upon the final messenger, our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa and if he was seldom his family members, his companions, and all those who preyed upon his fat with utmost sincerity until the day of, but he respected elders and brothers in Islam. I advise myself I remind myself and then all of you all present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to be conscious of a loss of planet mozzarella, during every single second of our lives if we wish to attain success if we wish to attain victory in this world as well
as the hereafter maleness kind of more Dianna, make us all from the people of taqwa and make me make us from the victorious and successful ones, I mean,
respected elders and brothers in Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says in the Noble Quran, in Surah Yusuf now known of course, why later, center costs almost kind of more Dinah. he informs the pockets of among while you're at us lm O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam national, we now pursue a center process. We narrate unto you we tell unto you, the best of stories accent is in the superlative form, it means the best, nothing more beautiful, nothing better. The best of stories possesses the plural of pesa, the best of stories unto you. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala went on to narrate the story of the Prophet Yusuf unto Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now,
interestingly, we have another solar in the novel for another chapter in the novel called title cost us title stories. here instead of useable essays, we narrate and to the best of the best of stories. And then on the other hand, we also have a chapter, a surah, known as sort of two causes. Now in that particular song, Allah subhanho wa Taala captures the story of Musa
Musa alayhis salaam. Now I want to touch on something important here to remind ourselves that allies have a journey has this amazing way of storytelling. Today, when you take writers when you take authors, when you take, maybe even certain video directors, there is this art of storytelling to keep the audience engaged, engaged, to keep the audience intrigued to keep their curiosity piqued, you have certain books that start off with a suspense moment you have certain videos, perhaps that start off with a suspense moment, maybe with an individual falling off a building, or something like that he falls into black darkness, and then the video begins. So it intrigues your curiosity to try
and find out how did the main character end up in such a way even in books, it starts off in such a way to pique our interest. The Koran has this amazing way of storytelling you take the story of Busan is that what was going on for example, it is scattered across the pond, but you have it almost as if in seasons episode of after episode, you have sequence, you have a certain number of episodes in sort of a certain number of episodes.
And it's almost as if Allah subhanho wa Taala and sort of Baja he starts off in the big in the middle of the story. He's appointed as a prophet. So what about the beginning? What about his birth? What about what happened in the palace of crown that you get it in sort of cost us almost as if season two is a flashback of the story. The story starts off in the in the middle the main character is appointed as a property.
The story goes on from there and it's almost as if it's a flashback where you go back to the beginning now he's a young boy he is just born. Season Two is a flashback in certain process.
Now in the process, the story of musculoskeletal slam is beautifully put forth by a lot of animals. And there almost seems to be a relationship between so called causes and sort of use of and this the scholars have seen beautifully highlighted in the books of Pepsi.
You see, generally speaking between sources we have a relationship if you are discussing the sutra
the hora this relationship with Papa
if you're discussing sort of an Enron there is a relationship with Alomar and Bukhara if you're discussing soloqueue Nisa, there's a relationship with an ISA and Allah in broad, subtle and beautiful connections. Now here instead of use of Allah mentions casas, and then you have another sort of cold process. So it almost seems as if there is this subtle connection and supernova. It is interwoven The story is, it's mind blowing.
Now, obviously, time does not permit for us to go in length into both the stories but I just want to point out the beautiful connections. And we have two stories in front of you. So we have the story of the Prophet Yusuf. In circle process. We have the story of Prophet Musa la SelectUSA in both sutras. Both stories begin with two young children.
It's the profit use of its total process. It's the Prophet Musa and his two young children.
What happens? These two young children in sort of the use of the child is loved dearly, directly by the father use monster persona was loved by his father iacobelli salat wa salam
in Surah cosas it's mu Silas that was the Lamb who is loved dearly by who his mother, their father, his mother, and by the way, Muslims
are also strongly connected. Use a virus that Muslim is the great great grandfather of musala salat wa salam ala in the tribe of
Israel is another name for Yaqoob the father of use of Isla Vista, you see the connections. So it starts off with two young children. their use of Islam by his father, he a moose is that Muslim is loved by his mother.
They fear the two parents fear in sort of use of the Father fears of danger inside the house. The siblings are plotting against you to participate in the story
says the mother fears for her child, but not fear of something from inside the household but from outside. The guards of your own are roaming rampaging ransacking houses whenever they see a newborn child there slaughtering the child because he had seen a dream. When a fire from Palestine comes, burns all the houses of the Egyptians, burns the palace and destroys his kingdom. So he has issued an order to kill all newborn children from when we saw it.
So she is scared of fear from outside. He is scared for his giant use of something from inside. Now what happens eventually, both the children in both stories are thrown into water. Use a virus that was alarmed by his own siblings. He is thrown into the bottom of a well theological joke. In surah, cosas moosari Serato Sara is thrown into the river is put into the river.
And where do they end up? The two of them ended up in Egypt.
Use wireless networks Sam was thrown in a well in Palestine. A caravan comes about rescued him but does not take him home. They shackled him, they changed him. They bring him all the way to the Egyptian marketplace and they sell him as a slave who buys him a minister from the palace. The same fantasy understand that Egypt was ruled by Pharaohs not just one round there were many fine and there were many rounds. This round. The fifth round in the story of Musashi is the worst one of them all. He is the biggest oppressor the biggest tyrant but there were many Pharaohs before him. Just says how you have seen the ruling wrong you have Pharaohs ruling Egypt.
So do the type of use Spanish that was allowed to there was a pharaoh. But a minister from the palace comes and purchases purchases purchases him as a slave from the marketplace, takes him to the palace and tells his wife Assa is down
inside of us. You know what, maybe one day he benefit us, this child Yousuf will benefit us or at
least we can adopt him as a child. What happens with musculoskeletal semicircular causes he's put into that basket like a box. The current of the liver takes him to that same palace, usually so that was the lamb was taken picked up by a man Musan is that was that system is picked up by a woman the wife of Iran use varnish that was sternum was taken to the wife of that man use Alisha Tucson was taken to the husband of the woman. And the woman also says the same thing I say
don't kill him. Don't kill him. Don't kill this child. Maybe this child will benefit us or perhaps we can adopt him as a child one day. Again, look at the connections All right, in sort of the user. The man who took use of was a good man.
The woman had bad character. Later on, we're going to find out she'll try to seduce us vice versa. In the studio musar is
the wife of Iran was a good lady. A Xiao Hai mentioned of her she's such a pious and righteous lady, she takes musasa around is the bad guy. That is the bad guy you see these connections Subhan Allah and the scholars have said go on to list the connection. It doesn't end there. Allah mentions in both the sutras now that they have reached the Palace of Egypt.
Now they've grown up fast forward, you know in stories and books in videos you have five years later, eight years later, and now the camera shifts basically. So it's now 10 years or 15 years later, they've grown up now when a mama shoot the Watchtower Athena postma. They've grown up and we have given them knowledge we have given them wisdom, and now the two of them fall into a fitna
of Islam. Yusuf Alayhi salat wa salam falls into a fitna inside the palace. musalla salat wa salam falls into a fitna outside the palace, two different Surahs but look at the connections and this is why my dear brothers in Islam, there is nothing in the Quran that has come about by coincidence not even a single letter, not even a single word. If Allah used a specific word, there is a specific purpose and reason for that.
The two of them fall into fitness one outside the palace, one inside the palace. Use what is that was the lamb, the lady of the palace in other words, the wife of the minister tries to seduce him.
He does not fall for her seduction. The husband comes in while she's trying to seduce him confronts the to the case is brought forward. And it is clearly understood that you Spanish that Muslim is innocent and he's been accused musala salatu salam goes outside the palace walls. He tries to talk stop two people from fighting. He tries to intervene and he accidentally accidentally ends up killing someone. He ends up killing the Egyptian killing a wrong person but he ends up killing that person accidentally.
What happens now? use violence to slam was innocent. In that story, here.
Sara is guilty.
Yusuf Ali serrato salaam, innocent but accused ends up in jail ends up in prison. Musa la salat wa salam unintentionally committed the mistake but yet he's guilty. He does not end up in prison. he flees from Egypt. he flees from Egypt. He's a fugitive.
Now they remain in prison in the sense that Muslim remains in prison for many years musasa Tucson, he goes to Medina. He gets married. And he spends almost eight to 10 years in Midian.
And then now he comes back to Egypt. Just like us when he came back to the palace use a virus that was stolen was brought to the palace and his innocence was declared. he interprets the dream of the key and his innocence was declared in front of everybody in the court of the King musala salatu salam comes back and he admits that he is guilty. He is he admitted that you know what I did something that is wrong, but Allah has forgiven me use a virus that was the lamb came back to save the kingdom. Okay, because he interprets the dream of the king, that seven years of famine, drought are coming about. You need to stock up your food, your provisions and prepare for the famine and the
drought. Moo silence Serato slam comes back to destroy the kingdom. The whole point of me mentioning all of these connections, media brothers in Islam is for you to be blown away.
By the storytelling of the Quran by the storytelling of Allah Subhana Motorhead And likewise, now that I shall not hopefully touched on the beauty of the storytelling of Allah subhanho wa Taala. I want to quickly touch on
the first story.
None of us no big scientists, none of us know how old the planet Earth is. It's many, many, many years old, with the, you know, way before the creation of mankind, there were other creations populating planet amount America came online his book, he mentions that the jinn populated planet Earth. There were, there was another creation by the name him, there was another creation by the name building these creations populated planet Earth. And there was one individual by the name
as Ozzy who was a very righteous individual. He was pious, it was worshipping Allah, he had knowledge about Allah. One report states that he had prostrated unto Allah so much that you won't even find a hand span of space on Earth, except that he is frustrated to Allah on that spot.
There was a lot of bloodshed, Allah sends down an army of angels to contain the situation and to drive away the rebellious gene. When this army came down, they observed as as the this righteous individual, from the jinn, they take him up to the heavens, and now he's worshiping online, he's rising in his ranks, so much the extremity becomes the teacher of the angels.
And now comes about the fateful day when Allah decrees and Allah declares that he is going to create our father,
is created. And now I want you all to picture this see, a sea of angels a seed, no one knows the number of angels that Allah has by him, a sea of angels, and there is one individual who is different from them. His name is as as he is not an agent can Amina Jin, he was from the jinn, he is standing with the angels as well. And Allah commands all of them, what if
all of you prostrate, prostrate unto them
tanto de la de Bernie is all of them frustrated, except for this one individual. He believes
he did not prosper. So I want you to picture the scene 1000s and 1000s of angels immediately obeying the command of Allah falling down in the sea when they're playing Salatu Juma when all of us come down and so you hear the noise of knees hitting the ground, think about that many angels falling down Institute because Allah commanded them to prostrate one individual standing all by himself, in that sea of angels. This individual was as as seen And from that day onwards, he was known as the police chief on a bow stick bow.
He, he refused. He became proud, he became arrogant and in other places on limitations. When it was asked by him, why are you not prostrating? He went on to say
I am better than him. Hello, Tony. Minato. You created me out of higher wahala total human brain and you created him out of clay. Adam, why should I prostrate unto him? He was the first individual to compare. Today we compare or I'm richer than him.
I live in a Porsche place. I am running around in a more expensive vehicle. I have this many degrees. I'm medicated. I'm a professional in this field. I have this title. Who is he?
arrogance. He destroys an individual. Pride only belongs to Allah. Even if you have a mustard seed of pride in your heart.
You will not take the agenda and my dear brother, your wealth is nothing It can be stripped away from you in seconds, your education. If one nerve is pinched, you suffer amnesia you lose everything and then you will forget your own name. So that's how we are.
So don't be proud about anything your condition can turn like this. There are so many stories of rags to riches and riches to rags to Panama.
This individual became proud, he's not going to prostrate
And from that day onwards, he was cursed by a last kind of mortality. So swiftly My dear brothers in this time I want to point out something and then conclude at the Marley's our father, he was asked not to indulge, he was allowed to roam in gender. He was given gender
By Allah Who is the most generous, there was just one thing that Allah forbade him from doing. He forbade our father and our mother, Adam and Hawaii ma Salatu was Salam from indulging in the forbidden tree.
shavon seduced them, and they indulged in that tree.
They indulged in it.
But the minute or the minus latos law realized that he had done something wrong what I saw Adam,
Adam, disobeyed the minute he committed that he turned to a loss of Hannah Montana, but I love ball.
He turns to a line since the adobo now I want you to observe the difference between Shabbat and Adam.
Were not from Shere Khan. We are from Adam Alisha. And as human beings we can make mistakes left right and center.
Even our father did. But look at the difference. Sherpa refused to turn back to a wall. Instead he went on to blame a lot rocky Bhima avoid me, you made me go straight. He blamed us.
And he challenged Allah soprano.
Immediately acknowledged his mistake, I have done wrong. Forgive me a line Allah says
we forgave him, he was forgiven. He was forgiven. This is the mercy of Allah. You see the other day I was reading.
And there was a wise scholar. Even if you don't take anything away from me Take this. There was once a wise scholar who said,
If I was given the chance to choose between my mother or Allah,
to judge me on the day of karma, if I was given the choice to choose my own mother, you know the mother who loves us so much the mother who gave birth to us, the mother who brought us into this world with so much of pain and difficulty, that very mother, even if you are a criminal to the entire world, she will help you she will embrace you. She will take you inside her home that mother, if I had the choice to choose between that mother or Allah,
I would choose a law
because a law is many, many, many, many, many more times more merciful than my own mother.
if you think that your mother is merciful unto you, That your mother loves you. Allah is many more times merciful than
He did not turn to Allah. He challenged us. he disobeyed the law. And it was pride you see the difference between the mistakes are the malice daco ceramica was a he disobeyed a by in regards to something related to desire. Desire, pleasure.
Shepherd on the other hand, arrogance try thinking high and mighty of himself. Allah hates them. If you commit a mistake not that I'm trying to undermine mistakes wrong is wrong. But if you do a mistake related to your own desire pleasure immediately turned to Obama forgives you but look at the gravity of the mistakes Sherpa was arrogant, he was proud.
And instead of turning to a lion seeking the forgiveness of Allah, He went on to blame Allah. He went on to blame. I said, You are the one who led me astray.
Islam did not do that. He pleaded with Allah, Allah forgive me and Allah forgave him. That's the beauty of
and look at the two eyes. Towards the end. Chapin also makes a drop.
Towards the end Shere Khan, Mexico, when it was said that you are cursed when Allah said I have put I have cursed you until the day of famine.
He immediately makes a da, da,
da yo Mubarak, give me time until the day of the AMA. On the other hand, Adam and Adam asked for the forgiveness of Allah shaitaan as for dunya chetanas for life.
Either man is asked for the forgiveness of Allah. And this is why even in terms of advice, there's no harm in asking for dunya but it should not only be dunya and that's where Allah says in the Quran, one, there are those who make dua
to Allah give us only dunya
Allah and they do not get anything
but woman who Maja pool and there are those who say
there are those who make to Allah give us a good life in this world, and they don't stop there. Give us a good life in the hereafter. And also save us from the blazing fire of jahannam. If you analyze the two third of the three parts of the da dounia, Farah and protection from janam, three paths to third are related to Allah one third related to dunya. This is basically how our priorities need to be. Don't ever don't ever over prioritize dunia or Alaska because at the end of the day, it's a short life, if you are 30 years old, perhaps another 30. That is, if you are guaranteed to live that long. What if you die tomorrow? But if you die two days,
but Alaska, forever and ever and ever. Today as intelligent individuals, we're thinking, what are the right investments to make? I need to put my money on property. If I put it on this, I lose the money. If I buy this vehicle, I lose my money. I need to maybe invest in gold. I need to invest in shares. I need to do this, I need to do that. We're thinking of so many things at the end of the day for another 30 to 40 years and then you're gone. your heirs will start fighting over your wealth. But what about there's no end to that life? What about a good house there? What about good investments there?
What about land? What about a good vehicle then you need to plan? We are believers we believe in Alaska, and we're going to be there forever and ever and ever. So we need to prioritize things, many others in Islam.
So inshallah inshallah with that I conclude, I ask Allah Subhana Medina to help us to prioritize that over adonia and I also pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us a good life in this world, as well as the hereafter. Maybe help us to turn to Him in sincere repentance many help us to do as many good deeds as possible. Many help us to purify our hearts of negative thoughts in regards to others may help us to eliminate and purge all toxic elements from our hearts and our minds and our souls. Many help us to purify our hearts. Many help us to be united as a community in this country. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless this country may Allah subhanho wa Taala bring about a good leadership
for this country. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless the economic situation of this country. May Allah bless our community, the Muslim community, may he keep us united May he help us to move forward at a good and organic pace. May Allah subhanho wa Taala just as healthy as united as here in this Masjid may unite us in the gardens of gender with our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and may He bless us all to drink from the house from the fountain from the blesser the hands of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Minami noir
