salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa also devotes anymore that should have been a big win for Saudi Arabia you know have been our quality our union our Mohammed bin Abdullah had a new idea and he was
We begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah, Who is no doubt our Creator, sustain and nourish and protect and cure, we ask Allah subhana wa tada Chava his choices, the blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who try to follow this path without more sincerity until the day of their
mothers and sisters in Islam, the online viewers as well as the television viewers,
like I mentioned in the previous session, if you have any questions, you can tweet me on twitter at Sharma. And I'll try my level best to clarify them according to the light of the for animus on them. So when we announced it on Thursday, if I'm not mistaken, there were a couple of questions that came in. And some of the questions were in regard to the content itself in regard to the story of Libra humanity's ratusan in regard to the story of jambu by the incident was around and those questions are I think most of the questions I clarified them via Twitter itself. But then there were two questions that came in. And I thought I'll start off by clarifying them and then we move on to the
story of the Prophet Yusuf alayhi salatu salam. So the first question that I want to clarify today inshallah Allah Allah is in regard to dyeing one's hair in regard to dyeing one's hair, because there was a brother who messaged me on Twitter and asked me to clarify in this regard, whether it's whether it is permissible or impermissible, what does Islam basically say about dyeing one's hair in regard to this many brothers and sisters in Islam, remember Fatty, a Hema Bala he makes mention of a particular narration that Abou merhi among one who can edit from the prophets of Allah while in the salon, the Jews and the Christians do not dye their hair, the Jews and the Christians do not dye
their hair, so be different from them. So be different from them. So, from this narration, we derive a recommendation from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam to dye one's hair. So from this it is understood that it is permissible, it is permissible to dye one's hair. And from this narration, we can see that it is even recommended upon an individual if he wishes to dye his hair to do it to differ from the Jews and the Christians. I hope I've made it clear. Now what is permissible what is impermissible in this regard, in general all colors, but now don't die in purple and pink and all these colors. All colors are permissible except for black. According to some scholars rahima
comala they say that you can dye your hair with any color other than black avoid black. And this is based on a particular incident when once Abu Bakr the last one, he brought his father abou half was a very very old man to the prophets that a lot more than you earn he was in them. And when those whom I said about while he was old, and so the white hair of Abu hanifa His hair was Snow White, you know pure white because he was so old. The profits that alumni that you were earning within them, he said change this change this change that snow white color change it, but avoid black In other words, dye the hair, but avoid the color black. So, based on this particular narration, there are scholars
who state that it is permissible to die once here, but the kind of black should be avoided. But then we have another group of scholars who clarify this further because this statement of the profits of the longlining early usnm was directed at an extremely old man an extremely old man. So based on this collars like azumi Rahim Allah and others, they say that we used to dye our hair black when our faces look young, but discarded it when our faces became wrinkled. And when we became old, when we became old. So based on this, based on based on this certain scholars as well as for myself in a solid, a pious predecessors, some of them state that the color black should be avoided when you
become old, so when you are young, it is permissible to even use the color black, there's no issue with it. But when you become old, you must avoid black because we have a direct statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and personally I prefer this opinion. And I in this particular question by saying that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best in regard to it, but it is permitted.
to dye one's hair, and when you are young, you can even use black once you become old, you're supposed to avoid it according to the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And one final note in that regard, trying to use dyes that are made of organic materials Don't you know resort to
dyes that are made of very harmful and at times even toxic chemicals, one is not good for your hair. And number two, it can also at times,
you know, remain on your hair, like a barrier that would prevent the water from bleaching the scalp, your hair etc. And you know, it might even be something that might prevent you from fulfilling your ablution properly, your vessel properly. So try to stick to things that are natural and organic, like hayner and other you know, plant based dyes, which won't be harmful for your health has been a shout out. And the second question that was posed was by an assistant and this was in regard to trimming
one's eyebrows in regard to trimming or shaping one's eyebrows. Now we have a Hadith of the prophets that a long way to here earlier said number seven where he is reported to have said that Allah subhanho wa Taala has cursed women who tattooed who tattoo their bodies who wear false hair, in a sense, they extend their hair and those who pluck the very false Hendersons not only extensions, that's a different story. But they were weeks they were Riggs here. And those who pluck their eyebrows, those who pluck their eyebrows, and those who artificially widen gaps between their teeth, they artificially widen gaps between their teeth. So there are scholars who say that your eyebrows
cannot be touched at all, cannot be touched at all based on this particular narration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But when you study this narration carefully, you can come to a conclusion that it generally discusses mutilation of one's body mutilation of one's body. If you look at the first mention of the Prophet for a long while you it was and then he goes the aloka says women who tattoo their bodies. So tattooing is completely impermissible, it is not at all permissible within the guidelines of our Sharia under the light of the Koran, and the sooner they wear wigs. That's number two. And number three those who pluck their eyebrows. In those days, there
used to be women who used to completely block all of the hair, the eyebrows, and then draw the eyebrows a fresh draw, the eyebrows are fresh. But now in regard to today's modern context, where the questioner who posed the question was actually talking about shaping one's eyebrows. Like say, for example, if a woman has very thick eyebrows, some women have something called as a unibrow, where the two eyebrows joined together, where the two eyebrows join together very thick eyebrows. For such individuals, scholars, they state that it is permissible for such women to shave their eyebrows like removing the hair that is right in the middle, because if it's too thick, and it is
joint, it may not look nice, it might look a little ugly, so it is permissible for them to remove the hair that is in the middle. And likewise if it's very thick, if the eyebrows are very thick, thick eyebrows and there is no harm in shaping it a bit but to completely pluck your eyebrows out completely. That is a form of mutilating one's body and that is not permissible. But other than that to keep it neat, clean and tidy. It is permissible and this is the opinion I favor Allah Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best.
So channel, Dinah, if there are any other questions that you wish to pose with a bead in regard to the content that we are discussing in regard to the life of the Prophet alayhi wa salatu salam or even other questions, please do as the brother said in the way
you can tweet me and shout out dad I'll try my level best to clarify that.
Okay, that today, we are going to be discussing the best of stories in childhood and the best of stories. Now so far we have been discussing stories, but today we are going to be discussing the best of stories as our maker himself states in the novel for an
kita Mommy, in
Mima our hyena
baba de la me
nagahama Fini, Allah subhanho wa Taala starts off surah Yousuf by stating Neff no naka su alayka axonal cosas we relate unto you Oh Mohammed said a long while in your early you send them the best of stories, the best of stories just before he as a Virgil started off the story of Yusuf alayhi salatu was salam, we narrate unto you the best of stories Bhima how hyena elated through our revelations and who you
are and through revelations unto you of this Koran. So Allah subhanho wa Taala he narrates the best of stories under Mohammed Salah Miley earlier send them and aqui obviously the boom of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So we mentioned in the previous session, we discussed about the children of Yaqoob alayhi salatu was Salam. So let's try to jog our memories a little in this regard Before we go further, inshallah Tada. So we mentioned I would like
the brothers to get involved as well inshallah, so let's try to jog our memories. Yeah, because if not, I'm the one who's talking often, I'm fasting as well, and my throat tends to get dry a bit. So let's hear something in the crowd. But if not, you know, the television viewers may think I'm just talking to myself and there's nobody here.
So, okay, so we mentioned the previous session about jacobellis ratusan. Can someone tell me the other name jacobellis that was named was known by
Israel Mashallah. Israel in Israel in ankles at the back must feel ashamed. See the youngsters in the front. They know the answer is wrong in Israel, and we said that the ban on Israel in the children of Israel, the tribes and nations that came after jacobellis, that was rammed they were known as Israel now. yaku. And that was Robert was his father's name.
is hard, right? Who was the son of?
Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. Okay, so, Ibrahim alayhi salatu. Salam he had how many sons?
We mentioned in the previous session, how many sons Ibrahim Malaysia that was two sons, their names
is mine and his heart Alico Salatu. Was Salam right? We said that his heart was
born to Sara
Ali Hassan was Salam and she was in Palestine was the is how is happy to do Salaam to Sarah.
Domini smile and introduce Allah. What is his mother's name? hacia la her salatu salam, I hope it's clear, right? And then it's hot. What he did was, he got married, right? He got married. And then we mentioned in the previous session that he got to he was blessed with two sons, two sons jacoba, his Rotherham, and another son. We mentioned his name was Aries and there was an argument a dispute that took place between the two sons and the mother. She sends jacobellis Rotherham to live with his uncle, right, which uncle was this?
an uncle who used to look after him, and later on, was to become his father in law as well because he married his daughter jacobellis rato salami marries his daughter, and he was blessed with 10 children from that particular wife, the first wife and then later on, he went on to marry the sister of that lady as well, like we mentioned in the previous session that in
in that era, marrying two sisters simultaneously was permissible, but it is haram according to our religion now, and then, through the second wife, he was blessed with another two children. Their names were Yusuf and bieniemy. So in total, how many children did jacobellis Rotterdam have? 12 in total, so we also mentioned that use of Allah, Allah was around was a noble prophet. Indeed, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his report rep said will carry him even in Karim it will carry carry. He is a noble individual, the son of a noble individual who was jacobellis Rogers am the son of a noble individual was this happening, he said that was the son of another very great and noble
individual who was none other than Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, this was a background in regard to the family of Yusuf alayhi salatu salam. So he was blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala to be a very, very handsome individual, he was blessed by Eliza gel to be extremely handsome. Now one day, little use of anime Serato cinema he sees a dream he sees an amazing, powerful dream. So after seeing this dream, he goes and informs his father about it. He goes and does his father, father, I saw a dream very powerful dream. So his father now asks him about this dream of his
Then he goes on to narrate to his father this powerful dream that he had just witnessed it Paula You're so funny Abby he fit in he wrote a two hander Ayesha
Kamara, a toe on a Tony Nisa, JD. And remember when use of said to his father little use of nice telling his father, yeah, Abbott's, oh my father in Nero II to the Ashoka. I saw 11 stars was shown the sun while Obama and the moon or I totally saw God, I saw them prostrating themselves to me. Now, you might be a brother, or sister, put yourself in the shoes of little use of Alex circles that I'm in this trying to imagine this dream. Just imagine what a powerful dream attend you know, we just came through the store, we skim through the content without you know, reflecting on the story itself. Just think 11 stars, the sun and the moon. Because imagine how he must think of the imagery,
how he would have you know, dreamt in 11 stars, the sun and the moon or prostrating unto me isn't like, I mean, do you think you have ever witnessed a dream similar to that? Don't you think it's a very powerful dream? The stars sun, moon, prostrating unto me so it was a very powerful dream. And that too for a little child? A very powerful dream. So the minute he told his father about it, his father was an Apple was no doubt a prophet at that time. He immediately understood that this was just not any ordinary dream was a powerful dream. A message from Allah subhanho wa Taala so the Father jacoba instructs his son, please don't tell your brothers about this screen. Please don't
tell your brothers about this dream. On I am buena Dumbo sauce raffia fit cafe Akihito, Malacca
Yamuna Madea sun, la casa su Bianca Allah is watching Don't tell your brothers about this dream of yours because I fear for your key to look at Qaeda they might plot against you I fear that they may plot against you initially Ivana Lilian Sania Docomo been widely shared on is to man, an open enemy is a clear enemy, I fear that shavon might creep in and you know, put feelings of envy, hatred and jealousy towards you, and they may start plotting against you, because they also might understand that this is a very powerful dream, and they might plot against you because of that. So don't tell your brothers about this dream.
Now, who are these brothers? These are the brothers that I just mentioned. The brothers from the first wife from the first wife, they were step brothers, they didn't share the same mother, but they shared the same father, jacobellis Ragusa. Okay. So they were 10 sons in total, they were anyway not very happy about use violence. So that was rough, because throughout they felt unsafe, you know, use Valley slam to slam enjoyed a favorite spot in their father's heart. And they always had this feeling within them. They used to envy us Valley salatu salam, they were jealous of use of Allah Azza wa Salaam. And now this jealousy started to manifest itself. Like I mentioned the other day.
Jealousy is an inborn quality, a trait that we all have as human beings, but we must try to control it and not allow it to manifest the minute we allow it to manifest. That is when it takes control of us. And that is when it pushes us into a pit of destruction. If we control it, if we curb it, and according to the profits that Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam if we transform it, we can actually transform it, we have an impermissible form of jealousy, the permissible form of jealousy. I mentioned this the other day, so I will not go into it deeply. We can transform it into the permissible form known as a limit law where we don't wish for the destruction of another individual.
So we must try to either transform it or control it, control it, we must not allow it to control us. If we allow it to control us, we just destroy us. So this is what happened. They allowed the jealousy to control them. And now they start to talk amongst themselves. They start to bicker amongst themselves is Nola usofa, who go in and be in Maine noseband in Santa Ana
Moby. Now they say Yousuf What a fool and his brother Binyamin Benjamin, a hug boo Illa Bina, they are more beloved to our father.
Then we are there more closer to our father, one afternoon, Rosa. But we are and our spouse by the sense, we are a young, strong group of individuals. We are 10 of us, we are so strong, we are young, in the Abernathy, abahlali movie, our Father is in a clear error. And look many brothers and sisters in Islam, they think. Or they thought that love could be won over by strength, that love could be won over by numbers. And they thought that they could win the love of their father by being harsh by proving their strength, but in reality, how his loved one over. I mean, if you want to meet the love of your father, do you go and show your harsh attitude, your arrogant attitude? And will you be Will
you succeed in winning the love of your father? No, you have to be tired, you have to treat your father Well, you have to be an obedient child. And that is when with good conduct Good luck with respect obedience. This is how you win the love of your father. Now this is what use of an Binyamin were doing. They were very close to their father because they love their father so much. They were obedient children, they were full of good conduct, they treated their father really well. And this is why obviously, the other sons felt left out because they were treating their father in a very harsh manner. And look, we can see in the statement itself in the
movie, our Father, you know, he's gone, you know, he's deviant. He's in plain error, which son will talk about his father in such a manner. My father, you know, is in plain error. It is making mistake after mistake. He is a big mistake, who will talk about one's father in such a manner if that individual had true love for his father a lot. So you see this from this very statement, we understand that their attitude towards their father was one of a very harsh temperament. They should treat their father in a very harsh manner. They were not obedient children, so naturally they felt left out.
So when we compare them the 10 sons with us valishia to cinnamon beanie, I mean, they were completely different kettle of fish these two you know, Vinnie amin, and Yusuf Ali's that was ramen on the other hand we have the 10 sons of jacoba histological ceramic as well, from the story of use of olives that was phenomenal brothers and sisters in Islam there are many lessons to be derived for the keen student. There are many lessons to be derived primarily in regard to you can see because of jealousy, siblings, their own blood, own blood, we're not talking about strangers enemies, people from outside know from within the family Allahu Akbar, from within the family and as we will discuss
inshallah, the plot against their brother, the plot to kill him, Allahu Akbar, your own blood.
It's understandable if it's someone from outside. This is family within the walls of your own family. They plot against their own blood, their own little brother Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, and this is how self destructive a trade jealousy is a lot of it just, it just makes an individual go blind, go blind, you won't even care with it. So and so is your family or loved one it doesn't matter. Jealousy just controls an individual may Allah subhana wa sallam protect us all their hatred for use of Allah His wrath was Allah made them go green with envy. They were so jealous, they started to continue in terms of their bickering and they finally began to conspire to kill little
use of Allah hisako ceram. Now what do they say?
No, you are better off Oh,
No mean that they what
They hatching a plot against us upon a Serato slam kill us or just cast him to some foreign land. Let's punish him. Let's chase him away. Let's go and drop him in some faraway land. If Luna khumba becomes so that the favor of our father will now turn towards us because the minute we eliminate use of out of the equation than our father, his focus will be on us. Our Father will love us. Because now the limelight the spotlight will be on us. I mean, we will enjoy all the attention that our father has to give. So let's get rid of use of LFSR wassalam. Now they're plotting against their little brother. But then one of the brothers whose envy and hatred towards use violence reducer Nam
was of a lesser degree than the others he said. Paula Paul no minimum ladapo no yo so bow. Bow via via betina job ba
ba don't say
They don't say
any Tanaka no minimum one of them. He said lots of

So now they plan on this, they plan on throwing their little brother into a dock Well, well in the middle of nowhere into a dock well in the middle of nowhere. So they plan plan plan and finally they decide to enact the plan. And they go to their
father their Kubernetes and they go to him and they start to act very nicely. All these days. They were very harsh. They hated their brother, the suddenly there is this profound love that has sprouted in their hearts towards their brother towards their father, they go to their father all of them together and very nicely. They butter him up they talking to him nicely with rosy sweet words that the Father pulled on his sense something was going on. So they go to him and they say father you know Yousuf is always at home little use Why don't you send him with us so that he can play with us? We have decided you know to let him join us join up click because before they didn't allow him
to come with them to play with them they used to chase him away. But now they go to their father and say why don't you allow him to come with us tomorrow when we go we will take him with us so you can have some fun with us he's always at home moping around alone certain computers we can play together make many he'll have a good time at home you know come out a bit and they start to try and persuade their father or lawyer

We want him to you know stretch his legs a bit but him come out and play with us. We just wish good for him. Send us with us. Our Silverman Avada send him with us tomorrow here.
So he can enjoy he can play he can involve himself in some you know recreational activities with us. We're in La Laguna Have you done and definitely we will take good care of him. We will take good care of little use of Allah He said as was said and now all of this this display this whole drama it perturb the aku Allahu Allah does not disturb the ambu Valley Serato ceram and then he voiced out his thoughts he said Allah in Nila zanoni and then happy to be here for for a cola.
cola was the
man who was you know, on jacobellis said in Nila zanoni. It saddens me in a sense, my heart is heavy that you should take him a lot. Look at the intuition. Look at that. He was a prophet at the end of the day he sensed it. He said My heart is heavy if you take him and I fear that a wolf might eat him up. A wolf might eat him up what unto man who have you known whilst you are careless of him? A wolf might come and snatch him away from you while you are all careless of him so I My heart is heavy to send him they immediately feigned surprise and they asked their father cannula in Akela who did not know Rosa in de la casa Ron, they asked him you know they asked their father. Do you think a wolf

If that were to happen, then surely we will become losers. We will protect him. We are 10 strong. We can look after him. We will protect him. Don't worry about it father, and they reassure their father so much. And then they go and inform you valleys that was done in the end jacobellis that was done. He considered me you know, gave his permission. And they go and inform the use of the use of Alexandra salon. But the brothers and sisters in Islam was so excited. Why? Because it is a little boy. All these days,
his brothers never allowed him into their circle. You can just imagine, right and so little fellow. He was so small, and the minute use of it, he said to us and I was given birth
He felt so happy. He was so happy. He, you know, was so excited. Just imagine I want you to put yourself in the shoes of busybodies. That was, he felt so excited that I'm sure he wouldn't have even slept the night because he was so excited to go out with his brothers the next day and play with them enjoy with them a lot. But then just think of the dark side. They on the other hand, were plotting and planning against us Valley Serato Sara, he was so small, he was so excited to go out with them. And he was happy that his father had given permission. He was looking forward to the it was like a trip. It was like a little picnic little trip is going out with his brothers to have some
fun, I was so excited.
Now, morning comes and they all get together and they go out to an open area, they travel far. And now they play and they enjoy useable hisako. So I'm so excited to be with his brothers, he's so happy that finally they have accepted Him and they love him. And he's playing with them, you know, running around with them, until finally they start to carry him. And he still thinks they're playing around. He still thinks they're playing around your time you carry a child and you know, you throw the child up and catch the child but she still feels as if you know they're playing around and you know, just to goofing around, and they gradually make their way playing with him playing with him.
They make their way to this. They make their way to this abandoned well. And now when they come close to the well they carry use of Elisa sandwich was still thinking that they loved him and they are playing with him. And they take him to the brink to the edge of the wealth to the edge of the wealth. And then he's about to fall into the well. And he's thinking that they're just playing around. They're just playing around trying to pull his leg until finally they pushed him into the
after he fell into the well. He thought perhaps it was a mistake. It was a mistake. And then he cries out brothers helped me Help me the well is dark, I can't see anything. And it was an abandoned well so there wasn't a lot of water, but then it was blue me dark. And there must have been all kinds of creatures, toads, frogs, reptiles, is inside the various kind of brothers helped me hurt me. And they're just looking at him from the top of the well.
And he had huddled himself up on a rock and he was crying Oh, just imagine not a grown up individual, a small little child, a small, little child. Voila. Later on we'll we'll discuss when a caravan passes by this a bush rahula Medical boy like this little boy
in the at the bottom of a dark, abandoned well thrown in, by whom, by mistake by his own brothers who conspired against him. And he still is not aware of that he thinks it was a mistake his father into the van and perhaps they're going to get a rope or a bucket and I'll come and help him out. He's crying our brothers helped me helped me. But then they outside. They're laughing at one another. They're looking at us. And they're saying you know what they're congratulating one another. With A Mission complete, Mission complete. We came out here to throw him into a well, it's done. Now we can go back and we can win the love of our father along. But look at how sharepad look at how
shaitaan fooled them into throwing their little brother into a well. Now he is trying out this with us. And just imagine to hear the footsteps go away. Instead of coming running. If you are in danger, if you fall into trouble when people come running towards you, and especially if you have family around you. They're all come running. I mean, if you stumble trip and fall, say you're just coming down the stairs of your house if you will trip and fall. Your wife, your mother, your father, your brothers, your sisters, they run to you. They're so upset. I mean, did you hurt yourself? Did you fall? they asked so many questions. here they've thrown the little brother into aware and instead of
rushing to his aid, they're walking away. They're laughing and they're walking away. I want you to imagine the turmoil of emotions in the heart of use of violence around the center. Just imagine how he must have felt abandoned.
Little boy alone.
And the nine falls. No one comes from a single sound. Just imagine the dark of the night. just rewind the night before he was so excited at home sleeping next to his father the warmth of his own bed. Thinking about the next day is picnic. Now fast forward he is at the bottom of a dark abandonware Just imagine how he must have felt this last night's pass. Nobody comes he's so worried is thinking you know what? I'm just going to die out of hunger. No food. The water is dirty murky water. You can't drink it towards reptiles all over the place. Such an old abandoned well.
Now he you know he's almost at the brink of giving up because
He thinks I'm going to die out of starvation out of hunger or thirst. And then what happens? Allah subhanho wa Taala he inspires us
well hyena la de la una
La Jolla, Sharon
Allah subhanho wa Taala states without hanaa la, We inspired you so badly. So, that was that led to not be unknown be Abrahim had our own language our own one day you will inform them or use or inform them inform your brothers about this affair of theirs, about this act of this the fact that they threw you into an abandoned well you will inform them one day when they will not know you, they will not be able to identify you they will not be able to recognize you just remember this inshallah, towards the end of the story, this will you know, this will come about inshallah done, you will, they will not know you, but you will inform them about this, Allah Subhana Medina inspires Yusuf
alayhi salatu salam, but the brothers and sisters in Islam, this is just the first test, the story will span across i think i'm not mistaken two to three days in sha Allah, and you will, you will, you know, come to a conclusion that Subhana Allah use value. So that was when he went through a lot of panel data puts him through so many tests law, test after test. Look, he was the apple of the eye of his father. And now he's at the bottom of a dark well, and it doesn't end here. Help doesn't come and he doesn't go back to his father, you will see what happens next. It's worse than the well, Allahu Akbar. He's thrown into slavery and sold as a slave. We talked about it, but test after test
after test after test, once a Sahabi or the a long line he asks the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yasunaga the narration goes along the lines of these words. Who are the individuals tested the most by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Who are the individuals tested the most, a lot of times you and I, you know, we think oh, life sucks. I'm going through so many tests, you know, I can't just handle this anymore. And we just take my life semi suicide perhaps we give up so easily because of a small test, because of our little financial stress because of a small medical problem because of a small family problem because of a small feud, a small disagreement between, you know, our siblings,
perhaps we quickly give up and we are quickly, you know, resorting to almost like taking our lives, Allahu Akbar, look at us abolish rasaan test after test. And then you know, what was why sort of long, Oliver says, you know, who are the most desperate individuals imagine any wild guesses?
The sinners, criminals.
the prophets are the most tested individuals by Allah MBI. And then you know what, Phil Lampton for me. And then the next best, after which the next best. In other words, the Sahaba, the righteous, the martyrs, the scholars, they are the ones tested the most but Allah subhanho wa Taala and then to supervise the long run evaluation have been done to say that an individual is tested by Allah Subhana Medina, according to his levels of righteousness, the closer you are to Allah, the higher the levels of your righteousness, you're bound to be tested by Allah subhanho wa jal for what purpose? These tests My dear brother, my dear sister, moles you in Polish polishes you to the
better, it perfects you, it basically prepares you for something bigger, what is it that is preparing you for agenda for paradise, these tests? So it depends on how we look at these tests. If you start to crumble, if you start to complain, if you start to question a live question the degree of Allah we have failed. Look, we discussed the story of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, Allah commands him to do what to slaughter his own son. If he had questioned Allah if he had questioned the decree of Allah. Sometimes you and I have a question, why can't I do this? Why can't I do that? Why does the Sharia prohibit me from doing this? He of all people could have question a lot. Why are you
asking, asking or commanding me to slaughter my innocent son? He could have but he didn't follow Muslim or they both immediately submitted. That is the beautiful quality of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, no questions asked. He didn't even bat an eyelid immediately accepted the command of Allah behind him Oh Dad.
So my dear brothers and sisters in Islam are going through tests for going through trials know for a fact that Allah subhana wa Taala is testing you for a purpose. And at times trials are blessings in disguise, we fail to understand it because we cannot see the bigger picture. Only Allah subhanho wa Taala can see the big picture. We cannot perceive his plan. We plan
But alas plan is the plan that supersedes all other plans. When Los Alamos Island open the open the doors of understanding for all of us and I mean, okay, so now use violence to slam at the bottom of this well, days pass, nights pass. And then one day, he hears the sound of animals, the sound of wheels that the words a caravan is approaching. And then he hears footsteps approaching towards the well. And suddenly a bucket is thrown in, plop it hits the water.
And then he cries out, help help help before you know, the man realizes that this is an abandoned well, and before he leaves the well. cries for help, help.
And then this man looks inside the well. Lo and behold, he surprised a wound on a young boy. And let's just pause there. And let's talk about what happened with the brothers now.
to the bottom of this well, and now they make their way home. They make their way home.
They make their way home during the early part of the night during the time of Sinatra, Asia,
Asia, during the time of Asia, they make their way home. Yeah, buku crying weeping just moments ago, they were rejoicing congratulating one another. You want another high five because they succeeded in their mission. But now they go to their father weeping and crying. They go to their father and weeping and crying. And they go to him and say, yeah.
mini Lana how Allah
saw deity. They used the very same thing that their father feared about what they went. And they told their father or Father, we were racing, you know, we were having a race. We were racing with one another. And we left use of by our belongings, he we kept him to look after our things. And then suddenly, out of nowhere, a wolf came. And 18 months ago world came and ate him up from our hands of a woman named Anna Welcome nasaw detail and we know you will not believe us even though we are speaking the truth. The they are confident that their father will not believe in them. We know that you will not believe in us even though we are speaking the truth is because of that we have brought
evidence we have brought proof. And what do they do?
They present the shirt of use of knowledge that was said on stained with blood. It was stained with blood for where'd they get this blood, the slaughter a sheep and they stain the shirt of use of alleys that was around with the blood of the sheep with them in Kenya, false blood. False blood it wasn't the blood of any human being or use polish that was not for that matter. They remove the shirt. And this was before they put him into the well. This was all you know, when they had that drama of playing around and goofing around their immunity shirt. They planned it out well. shaitaan helped them to plan it out really well. But they forgot one thing before presenting the shirt to
their father before displaying it. They forgot to mess up the shirt a bit they forgot to tear the shirt. The shirt was looking crisp as if you know it was freshly ironed, but it has got blood all over the place. jacoba is not Muslim, even though he was old at that time. It was an intelligent individual a prophet of Allah. He was surprised. A wolf eating someone without daring the shirt. That means the wolf neatly removed the shirt and kept it aside and then ate the person.
Have you ever seen such a neat and orderly wolf who removes the shirt and keeps it and then he eats it and then grabs the blood? So he was surprised he said How can this be? And then Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions? Kala bansa while at lacuna, coil calm.
He said no, you have made appertain you you've made up this story. This is a false story. You yourself have made up the stain for supper on Jimmy patients is beautiful. He was old, he was old. And they I mean he did not know what they had done with us while he that was around. So he cries out to Allah subhana wa Jalla he says for sovereign German, patience is beautiful. While no one was dying, Oh Allah matassa goon, Allah then it is Allah who's helped can be sought against that which you have described against your story. Only Allah has helped can be solved because now there was so many things going on.
Within the mind of yaku, I want you now to put yourself in the shoes of
a father who loved his child so much Just imagine your child
missing the night before you are hugging him, you perhaps kissed him before he slept. When he was leaving to play, maybe you bid farewell. And you were hoping that he would come back. And now what has been brought a shirt stained with blood, saying that this is the blood of your son and he has been killed. Just imagine the turmoil of emotions. Now imagine jacobellis latos law and use valleys use of knowledge that was at the bottom of a when you have to
have a father not knowing where his son is.
Look at the story about boy.
Look at how the father and son must have felt their relationship just broken just like that torn apart from one another, just one night before they were together. But here now they are torn apart. And who were in the middle, these 10 young boys and what made them do this? What made them fragment their family into tiny little pieces, jealousy. And who gets the upper hand now shavon shavon.
So many brothers and sisters in Islam, don't give in to jealousy. Don't give in to envy, don't give into hatred, it will destroy you, it will destroy you. You might think that if I do this, I will get the upper hand I'll be this I'll be that but at the end of the day you will be an utter loser me Allah subhanho wa Taala
the whole family was fragmented into pieces shattered into pieces. They were all torn apart for the upset. do little brother fall away. And they in the middle. What are they trying to do? They're trying to win the love of their father through this alone. They worsen the situation. They reverse the situation. They thought that they could win the love of their father but impossible how. And he cries out for sovereign German will long will miss Dianna Allah does reform. But like I said, My dear brothers and sisters it is the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the supreme plan. And that plan was something completely different for us. It was around this caravan. The man sees use of
Allah is not wassalam in the world. He cries out Yahushua
he cries out. Good news. He cries out to the caravan. Good news here is a boy. Now think of us advantage that was around his spirits must have soared because At last somebody has come to help me. At last. Somebody has come to help me. Perhaps they're kind souls will take me back to my father and I'll be able to go back home. He happily gets onto the bucket or holds onto the rope as they lift him up. They lift him up. And what do they do? They don't feed him. They don't hug him and tell him you know what? They're going to take you back to your father. Now what do they do? They tie him up alone. They tie him up and throw him into the caravan. And where does this caravan go now? Just now
just imagine use of violence that was tied up in the caravan. And this caravan is journeying journeying journeying from Palestine to Egypt, a bottle of water long distance from Palestine to Egypt. And he is traveling, traveling thinking perhaps they're taking me home maybe they don't know who I am. He's taken to Palestine, many brothers and sisters in Islam and sold in the marketplace as a slave, a slave. You are free man. You're enjoying freedom. Just imagine tomorrow if you wake up and you are a slave. If someone has taken you as a slave, your slave doesn't have any rights whatsoever. The slave is just a commodity that belongs to someone if the man says since the slave
has to sit if the man says Get up, he gets up. It's not It's not even like today's modern day employees servants may it's no they have the liberty. You know what I don't want to work for you anymore. I want to raise in my salary. I'm just leaving, I quit and they leave. A slave cannot do that a slave belongs to the master. He is sold in the marketplace as a slave, a young boy who was the apple of the eye of his father, but then dumped into a well by his own brothers and now sold in a foreign land. A young boy he doesn't even know where this place is Egypt. He is sold in a marketplace as a slave who buys him a minister from the ministers of Egypt by him and this minister
takes him to his palace and he tells his wife look after this little boy perhaps in the future he may be a source of benefit for us look after him and give him a good logic. But anyway, he was a slave. He grew up in this palace and then later on, something happens and he used Felicia wassalam was imprisoned. So inshallah Allah. Tomorrow we will discuss what happened within the walls of the palace after us while he grew up and why he was imprisoned. The story will continue
Other data. I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow is like Santa Monica work to find different continents.
