I might even want to lock the door but I can't
handle the length of Villa Halloween or suddenly will serve a model from Columbia University in Abuja. Now Habib in our quality are given a de la la vida, he was happy
We begin by placing amongst Hannah Montana, who is a creator and sustainer Alicia.
We asked the last we had a more dynamic shower his choices don't blessings and salutations upon a beloved Prophet Mohammed Salah Mama, you, sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his bat with utmost sincerity until the day of
the brothers and sisters in Islam. A few questions had come in and I answered some of them online, and the others inshallah we will be dealing with them after the story of use of bodies that were slammed towards the end of the session. So those of you who want to remain and listen to the questions you can and the others can leave if they wish to do.
So, continuing with the story of use of violence that was around, we mentioned that yesterday.
He prayed to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
From decision are happy to eat a yummy man.
He prays unto Allah subhana wa Taala that Allah prison is more beloved to me than that which these ladies are calling into, as we mentioned yesterday that the fitna the trials and temptations that these ladies were putting across, and how you safale serrato salaam dealt with them, he dealt with them in a manner where he feared a loss of animal dialogue. He was conscious of a loss of data. And this lady specifically the wife of the Minister of Egypt, she, you know, arranges for a feast, a banquet and she invites all the ladies over. And after that, you know, she wanted us bodies that was done to pass by and they were all amazed and inspired by the beauty of use of Alexandra Salaam and
now they were all hatching plans to save us use violence. So it was at this juncture use violence that was romney Praise to Allah and Medina. Yeah, Allah prison is more beloved to me than that which they are calling me towards the Haram that they're calling me towards prison is no beloved unto me, Allah subhanho wa Taala he answers us violent crimes and use violence. mussalam who was imprisoned, even though he was completely innocent, he was imprisoned. And a rumor was created that he had been imprisoned because he had attempted to seduce the wife of the minister.
Because he had tried to seduce the wife of the minister, this was the rumor that was spread across the city. Now, moving into the prison, the story now focuses as to what happened within the walls of the prison, use filings not wassalam is imprisoned. And two young men, two young men were also imprisoned with him. Now, they kept observing us polish that was run very carefully, and they found him to be a righteous and noble individual, you know, opposing the rumor that had been spread and you know, they thought they wanted to observe it, but to see, you know, he was a very righteous and noble individual, who used to keep himself busy in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They
found him to be a fruitful individual, a noble individual and a righteous individual, because prison is a very difficult place, you have all kinds of criminals inside the walls of a prison, you know, you can have murderers, you can have rapists, you can have thieves, robbers, you can have all kinds of people in the serial killers at times, you can have all kinds of people within the walls of the prison. So, in general, they're not, you know, people with a good temperament, they can be harsh at times, they can be, you know, different types of people within the walls of a prison. So, when they observe us, Islam, he was incomplete. Contrary to all of that, you know, he was contrary to all the
individuals who are inside there, he was a completely different person. He was a very righteous and noble individual. Each of these two young men, they see a dream, they see a dream and they go to him because they trust him. Now, they know him to be a righteous individual, a pious individual, they go to him to get their dreams interpreted. Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about them in the noble Quranic surah Yusuf wodify man who sagina
in nee Hourani
in me, Ronnie, ne rufo CFO
Tony Rahman, napit namita we lay in
On ketamine and montseny now whatever the man was sitting there entered with him two young men into the prison called Hydra mama in Nia, Ronnie absolu hombre, one of them said, I told you that each of them so angry. So one of them says,
I saw myself in a dream pressing wine camera, in the sense wine is generally you know, made out of grapes and other fruits, so they have to press these fruits to get the juice out. So he says in the arani, absolute hombre, I saw myself in a dream pressing wine bottle. And the other he says in the Errani, after multiple currency hoops, I saw myself in a dream, carrying bread on my head, in a sense, a basket of bread on my head, kulu toyman. And the birds are flying around me and they were eating from this basket, they were eating from the bread that I was carrying on top of my head, which really, please tell us of the interpretation of this dream. In Iraq. I mean, we've seen rarely
we look at you, we see you as one of the most known one of the doors of good use of violence that was around, he seizes the opportunity and he seizes this opportunity, this opportunity that he got to interact with them, he sees it to remind them about Allah subhana wa Jalla. Before we go further, in terms of interpreting dreams, this was something that Allah subhana wa Jalla had taught us about violence that was set up, he had the knowledge of interpreting dreams, we understand. So this is merely an interpretation at the end of the day, everything goes according to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala a misconception or misunderstanding must not come into our hearts that perhaps the
one who is interpreting dreams knows about the future, etc. Now, it's just the interpretation of a dream, it can happen according to the interpretation and it can even happen exactly opposite to the interpretation of the dream it everything happens according to the will of Allah subhanho data, in regard to interpreting dreams, not everybody can do it. This is a knowledge given to certain individuals by Allah subhanho wa Taala. certain individuals, they can interpret breaks. So use violence that was slammed he seizes the opportunity. He sees the opportunity to remind them about Allah subhanho wa Taala he informs them called li te Kumar,
inland to Kumar visa v. He says, before the food comes, in other words, before your food comes, before the meal time arrives, I will tell you all of your interpretation Sharla copula, I see a puma, that eco mama I lemonnier ob This is something that has been taught to me by my Lord. He did not attribute it to himself. He didn't say that, Oh, I'm the oil knowledgeable. Yes, I can you know, interpret your dream I know about it. No. He said that this is something that has been taught to me by my lord in itself to me, let me let me know let me learn you open it.
And then he goes on to give them our he says verily, I have abandoned the religion of a people that do not believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and the ones who are disbelievers in an era of home capital, their disbelievers in an after I have abandoned their religion, and I believe in the last kind of water Island and then he goes on to inform them what to back to me that he brought him who is halfway output and I am following what I have followed the religion of my forefathers my grandfather's my father's Ibrahim is half and yaku AlLahi wa salatu salam, Makana and North America Billahi min ash Shea and we should never attribute any partners it is not upon us to attribute
associate any partners unto Allah subhana wa gyla laliga unfortunately lanie Aileen our island nurse when I get nocturnus Isla is guru. This is from the grace of Allah subhanho wa Taala from the boundaries of Eliza gel to us and to mankind. But most of mankind are not grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala he uses this opportunity to interact with the use of this opportunity because they have come to him seeking help. So this is a very good opportunity. I mean, at the end of the day, they have to listen to him if they want his help. So he seizes this opportunity to give them the power to remind them about Allah subhanho wa Taala because after all, it was a prophet of Allah subhanho wa
Taala so he conveys the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala even being within the walls of the prison love as well. My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, there are certain individuals who say today that you know that law is not a responsibility upon everybody. It is a responsibility upon a select few individuals, perhaps the elite of the society and things like that. But when you study the life of the prophets that allow you to send them when you look at the ayat of the Quran, what does Allah subhanho wa Taala say in regard to us quantum higher oma
We are known as the best of nations we talk about the Oman the nation we have been discussing about so many nations of different prophets, we are known as the best of nations. Why? Allah subhanho wa Taala that goes on to say that maroun have been married for 10 how nanny, because you enjoin good and forbid even. We enjoin good and forbid evil, this responsibility of enjoining good and forbidding evil is upon our shoulders. But it does not necessarily mean that there's only one way that you can give the hour There are many ways there are many ways today you have many modern day tools at your disposal to give the hour and it doesn't matter whether you be at the bus stop,
whether up at the airport, wherever you are, use it as an opportunity to talk about Allah subhanho wa Taala to remind others about aligns of agenda to turn their focus towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. As a believer as a follower of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we must take on this responsibility today, you look at other religions, like perhaps Christianity and other religions, you see the missionaries going toe to toe and they go through a lot of pain to get the message across.
Be in the United Kingdom or other countries will come to your dough, they're not your dough and they'll try to you know,
even if you tell them that, you know, I'm a Muslim, they'll still want to talk to you that is, you know, let's have a chat. And they'll try to you know, give their little booklets and whatnot and try to convince and you know, do all kinds of things, where are we in comparison but a Mashallah when you look at the youngsters, a lot of operations going on like st our road shows and things that Mashallah May Allah accept them, and grant them strength in what they're doing. And sincerity as well. We must try to involve ourselves in different activities where we spread the message of Islam, all of us You and I, we need to become ambassadors of Islam. We need to become ambassadors of Islam,
we need to portray Islam we need to portrait soon of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wherever we are, wherever we go. Without hesitating without feeling embarrassed, we must do it as believers as the followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so use violence that was around he has this very interesting conversation with them. And then he asked them you know, after you know putting forward all of this logic, he asked them yeah, so ABC Genie, bamboo motor for a bona fide me.
So I see Jenny
mozaffarian kona fire on me.
He says, Oh, my two companions of the prison, my cell mates are many different gods are numerous Gods better or is one a lot better. is one a lot better. I mean, love will work it will baja is one Allah the one the irresistible. Is he better? Or is it better to worship a number of gods that cannot benefit you or harm you? You know, he puts forward a very sound logic in front of them. So he conveys the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala he reminds them about Eliza Virgin and then he interprets their dreams by the will of Allah subhana wa jal now moving on to the interpretation. It has them yeah, so you see Jenny
Lee, you're on camera. Man.
Lambo fans and Tony Romero saying Cody L and Maroon as the fee the stuff the Yasaka decision, oh, my two companions of the prison. Ama had Akuma The one who saw in his dream that he was pressing grapes, he was pressing wine, he will be released and he will become a cup bearer of the king in sha Allah.
if Allah wills, He will be released from prison and he will become a cup bearer to the king in the sense he will become the one who presses wine for the king of Egypt. For the second one who saw in his dream that he was carrying bread on his head, a basket of bread and burns eating from the bread, he will be executed. He will be executed in a sense he will be killed and birds will eat off his head, you know, like birds like wild chairs and other you know, wild birds will eat off his head one scary interpretation. I mean, I don't know what the person's reaction might have been to the dream, a very scary interpretation for the amarula v v test at the end. And he goes on to say this is the
case judged concerning which you both have asked me this is my interpretation in regard to what you asked me about your dreams. if Allah wills it will go accordingly. Now as Allah subhanho wa Taala this individual who saw in his dream that he was pressing wine, he was released and he became the cup
Data is a king, the other was executed now use violence that was Anam he informed the one who was going to be released wakad and Isla de la Santa Ana hoonah Jae min homeschooled Nia in the Arabic. He said to the one now look at the words in the ayah bacala lillahi. He said to the one gun that he thought that he said to the one he assumed would be free. From this, we understand that there is nothing conclusive at the end of the day happens accorded the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is a mere interpretation. This is just an assumption. It may happen like this, it may not happen like this, but Karla Lila de bon Amna who Nadia min Homer's corny, in Arabic. So he said to the one
whom he knew to be he he assumed to be saved. He said to him, was corny in the Arabic mentioned me to your Lord. Now, just pause for a moment in this regard. There are some people who, you know, ask me a lot about,
you know, weather forecasts, whether it's permissible to watch the news and to perhaps go through the weather forecasts and whatnot, today, you have applications that when you open up the application will tell you what the weather might be like tomorrow. So is it permissible to read such forecasts? Is it permissible to listen to such forecasts? Is it permissible to have weather applications, it may be not so important here, where are you know, the weather is somewhat stable. Mashallah, in the Maldives, Sri Lanka and the neighboring countries, the weather is more or less very stable, you have a little bit of rain here and there, and most of the time, it's sunny. But in
countries like the United Kingdom and other places, they're very concerned about the weather, because, you know, they plan their day accordingly, if the weather forecast informs them, that there is a possibility of rain, or have a very, you know, cold, chilly when they would take appropriate gear appropriate clothing, when they travel, I mean, when they're traveling to work and whatnot, because on the way back, they wouldn't want to, you know, get caught in the rain or the cold or something like that. So it's very important for them. In regard to this, this is also very similar to dream interpretations. You see, you're not supposed to believe that the weather forecast will
happen just as how the weatherman informs you, if you have that kind of a belief, then it is wrong. But on the other hand, if you think there is a probability that it may rain, it may not rain at the end of the day, it is according to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no harm at all in you know, following the weather forecast, or perhaps even downloading the application that talks about the weather and whatnot. Because in general, these individuals It is based, it's not, it's not sharks in the dark, like how the fortune teller tells you, when you go to the fortune teller, he'll take your palm and he tells you this, this, this, you know, oh, you're going to get married, you're
gonna get married, in one month's time, it is going to happen to you that is going to happen to you. It gives you all kinds of stories. This is these are just shocks in the dark. He doesn't believe he doesn't have any any proof whatsoever. But when you talk about the random weatherman and the weather forecasts, they basically study the formation of the clouds the movement of there's a lot of science involved. There's a lot of science involved, not Rajahmundry. Like he doesn't doesn't go outside and you know, I think it's going to rain today. No, or you know, like the olden days used to go, they smell and they'll say no, it's going to rain or they see the birds this bird flying this way it's
going to rain. No, today, there's a lot of science involved. They study the formation of the clouds, but not the way the wind and all of that stuff. And based on that experience, based on that knowledge, they say okay, there is a possibility that it might right. So based on that there is no harm in following the weather forecast. As long as you don't believe in it. 100% where you think that you know what, come what may it's going to rain today, where you completely forget about the will of Allah subhanho wa jal because at the end of the day, you and I we know the weather forecast can tell you tonight it's going to rain, you know, cats and dogs, but then if Allah subhanho wa
Taala wills, it can be a you know, clear night with no clouds at all. At the end of the day, you and I we believe in that. So there's no harm in following the weather forecast. As long as we don't believe in it. 100% there's just a probability there's no harm in that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best This is my opinion, moving on. So
useful is that was around he goes to this man was who he thought would be freed and he told him if you are afraid,
mentioned me to the king mentioned me to the king and tell him about my situation about my plight, that I have been imprisoned unjustly just mentioned me to him. This was his small request. Allah Subhana Allah mentions for Ansel who shavon for answer who shade on the canopy. Now when this man was released, you know in his happiness
In this euphoria that you know, I've been released, he completely forgot about us.
The answer was shavonne. Allah subhanho wa Taala. State, the Devin shavon made him forget about use of Alisha to sedan. Further visa is a journey visa in Sydney and use Balinese to salon he remained in prison for a number of years a lot. But for a few more years, he remained in prison for a few more years. Some historians some scholars mentioned that he remained for another five years others mentioned seven and others even go on to mention that he remained for almost 10 years in prison.
Look at the trials, look at the trials. I don't want you to forget the trials and use violence that Assam is going to one after they just just you know, please recall the timeline as we go okay, from the well to being sold as a slave then to the minister's house and now in prison. So after a number of years, now the king of Egypt he sees a dream the king of Egypt, he sees a dream, a dream that just petrifies him frightens him he sees a horrifying dream. And what was the dream about anemones? Allah mentions the dream wacol and Veliko in the rasa ibackup in the
Bharatiya Simoni Guna saburo Naija the king now he sees what does he see? Seven cows, seven fat cows, seven fat cows devouring eating up seven thin lean counts.
He sees seven fat cows devouring eating up seven thin lean cows was that.
And then he says seven you know ripe green ears of corn you have you know corn ears, he says seven green ears of corn and he sees another seven dry withered up ears of corn after seeing this dream image imagery in the dream you know seven cows eating up 17 cows and then seven healthy green ears of corn and other seven dry ears of corn. He was
you know a bit shocked and he was wondering as to what this dream meant. So he gathers all of his ministers, his viziers all of them and he says yeah, you
He says yeah, you owe the notables. In other words, the leaders, the ministers all come and then he tells them of Tony encounter. Dr. Cha Barone explained to me my dream, if you can interpret dreams, he tells them about the dream. And it tells them please interpret this dream for me. If you are people who can interpret dreams now is coheres with yours. None of them could interpret this dream none of them because number one, they were not good at interpreting dreams and they thought it was just some kind of a nightmare or some you know some messed up dream that doesn't have any meaning at all. And they go on to say call out the call to Atlanta. This is you know nothing but mixed up false
dreams just a nightmare King. Don't worry about it. It's just a nightmare. Forget about it. Mama nanometre really laflamme in the island minute, even if it if it is a dream that has a meaning to it, we are not killed in the interpretation of dreams, we cannot interpret dreams. Number one is just you know, false dreams. And even if it were a dream that had a message in it, we are not ones who can interpret dreams. Now why is this the discussion was going on the cup bear who's the companion
the companion abuse while he was in prison. He was observing all of this and that's when you remember, use violence that was right because his own story. He saw a dream use violence. he interpreted it with the help of Allah and it happened according to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he remembers use violence Raj was around. And then he informed the king about use of LED so that was set up. He says what color Lavina jam in Houma was gonna buy their own machine and our own ambito komeito really on the band was released one of the tour in the prison, he says that he remembers and he says, I will tell you okay of its interpretation, but send me to meet so and so and
I will bring you the interpretation of your dream. The king says by all means go go and get the interpretation.
Now this man after so many years, like we said, five, seven or even 10 years anyway, a large number of years. The man now goes to visit us via Instagram and the addresses in us so for i o has changed the output for us.
He remembers us via Serato Sam and there's a little Pokemon jam going on now because he knows he's going to be angry when he forgot about us violates that as well Sarah, so truthful use of usable is Sunday afternoon Nafisa, Vega beratan Simoni Kudo, nessa Barrow, nyjah, was a very sambuddhassa
de la Li or giovinazzi Malibu. So now the man, you know informs this malaise that wassalam and you will see chamada use violence that was that was an individual with a very magnanimous character, very forgiving character. He did not hold grudges. He forgave the man for forgetting and then he listened to the story now the mentors in your use of our use of the king has seen a dream like this seven fat cows devouring 17 cows, seven green ears of corn and seven dry ears of crop of corn. Can you please interpret the dream for me so that I can go back and inform them about the dream and inform them about you as well. So with the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala once again use Valley
salatu salam, he interprets the dream he talks about and he advises them in regard to the economic conditions of the city. In regard to the economic conditions of the city, he not only interprets the dream, he also advises them he tells them, he informs this man to go and inform the king and his courtiers Karla Tesla Runa Santa Ana de nada Abba sama, hausa Tom de roofie song Boni LA County.
He says for seven consecutive years, you must So as usual and the harvest that you get the jury you must farm cultivate and what you receive. Stock it up, stock it for seven years only use a little of it for your day to day needs. But don't waste don't squander stock it up as much as possible for seven years because the first seven years are going to be seven years of abundance, the seven fat cows seven healthy green ears of corn, seven green ears of corn that's that indicates that you are going to be blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala there's a possibility that you will be blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala with seven years of abundance, seven years of cathrach abundance, you'll be
given a lot during that seven years. And then what will happen 17 cows eating of the seven fat cows and then the seven dry Villard ears of corn that indicates that there is a possibility. After the seven years of abandoned abundance, you will be inflicted by Allah subhanho wa Taala with seven years of famine and drought, seven years of famine and drought where there will be no crops, all the crops will die, no habitation whatsoever. And there'll be a lot of hunger all over the city. So we need to sow and harvest as much as possible during the seven years of Capra during the seven years of abundance to be ready to prepare ourselves for the seven years of famine and drought. So this is
what he instructs the man to go and tell the king,
the man the cup bearer, he goes to the king and tells the king The king was very impressed. The king was very impressed. So he asked him about use valleys that was around and this cup bearer now after so many years, he tells the king about use of Allah He said it was set up. So the king immediately said, you know, let me give him a royal
royal pardon. And I want him immediately released. I want him immediately released. So when this news went to use violence that was around he said, I'm not coming out. I won't come out until my innocence is proven and proclaim, I need to I need it to be proven and proclaimed because there was a rumor that was spread across the city that I tried to seduce the wife of the minister and that's why I ended up in prison. Now that I've been given a royal pardon. And now that I'm going to be released, I first want an investigation. He wants an inquiry into his case to be lodged and an investigation to take place. I want my innocence to be proven and then I'll come out. So the minute
he said this, the king because a lot smarter than I mentioned what call and medical tune he made the king said Bring him to me bring use of La Serato sample to me. Pelham magia hora Sol, Paula jenoptik. When the messenger came to us while he was in and he said there are a lot of people go back to your cane and tell him first and Houma. balonus watching lots in Botswana
in Nairobi, Kadena
Return to your king and ask him what happened to the women who cut their hands What happened to them? They were the ones with the wife of the minister who plotted and planned against me what happened to them in Nairobi because he nearly surely my Lord, Allah subhanho wa Taala is well aware of their plot Allah knows of their plot. So the minute this was informed the king the king demands for an immediate inquiry to the case of use of Allah to Islam in the sense, the case was once again brought out and an investigation takes place. The King questions the ladies, including the wife of the minister, Karla
rotten, sofa and he left sitting on a
Next thing the king said to the women, what was your what was the matter when you try to seduce use of Allahu salatu salam, and then now they, you know, they testify in favor, they say put in a hash or the law e ma adenylyl. Even soon they say Allah forbid, we don't know anything he will against us valleys that was around. He is innocent. He is innocent.
We don't know anything they confess. they confess in regard to their wrongdoings and they say that we don't know anything wrong about Yusuf alayhi salatu salam and now what happens the main person comes forward call encima. Jonesy is in a house house. I'll have another hour to one I've seen he

I don't have to you know protect my prestige or whatnot. I was the one who tried to seduce him. He was surely of the truthful, he is innocent. I am the one who tried to seduce him. So this was a proclamation that was made. And the whole city got to know of the truth that the minister's wife she was the one
who tried to seduce use of violence that was set up. So once this was made clear use violence that was done himself. He clarifies why he requested for an investigation. He says radica Lee Alemany
la Li Na use violet is not to salami says I asked for this inquiry in order that the minister may know that I did not betray him. Because the rumor that was spread was that he said he was the wife of the minister. So he wanted this to be clarified. for it to become crystal clear that he was innocent at the time when they put him into the prison. So and then he went on to say what and Allahu Allah is the guy that he needed Verily Allah guides not the ones Allah subhanho wa Taala guides, not the plot of the ones who betrayed me the ones who deceived the ones who betrayed that these ladies they were all trying to deceive the people. So Allah subhanho wa Taala will never let
their plans become a success. And then he goes on to a very powerful statement. One
to never see.
me, says mama Oba UFC Allahu Akbar, Yusuf alayhi salatu was salam, being a prophet, and individually in such a magnanimous character. Look at what he's saying. And I am not free of minus coma or even MC in nappsa ammara to Mizzou in America marami wearily the human self is inclined towards even in Amara chemotherapy except the ones whom Allah subhanho wa Taala has bestowed his favor upon in Nairobi Allah for him in regard indeed, my lord is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. In regard to this particular statement. There are scholars who say that this statement was uttered by the wife of the minister woman or university after saying all what she said, she said this, but the more
favorable opinion is that this is part of the Statement of Use of violence. That was not because he said that he clarified why he wanted the inquiry and then he went on to say, Well, now we're gonna see I am not free from my naps in the Napster American be sued. Verily, the nafs pushes an individual towards even you and I need to understand that there are many forces of evil at play. It's just not the shape and alone. We also have another element within as a nurse, this nurse keeps pushing us towards that which is wrong from our university in the nafsa. America Mizzou, the nafs keeps on pushing us towards even and that's why sometimes
They ask why during the month of Ramadan, the devils all shackled up. Why do we still feel inclined towards sin? Why do we feel like doing things that are wrong? When the shaitan chelten are all locked up? My dear brother, my dear sister, the shanties are locked up, but the knifes within you is not locked up. So during the month of Ramadan, you need to understand that the influence of Shere Khan is not there at all. So, if you are feeling inclined towards even if you are feeling inclined towards sitting, then that is your naps you and your naps is extremely rebellious. And you need to work on your naps because the influence of Shere Khan is no longer present. So during the month of
Ramadan is a good testing period. If you feel inclined towards sin, if you feel inclined towards evil, you cannot blame Shere Khan because Schaefer is locked up, locked up in our in like a maximum security prison. He cannot come out under the end of Ramadan. It's your enough set play. It's your naps at play. So you must work on your announcement Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all from the evil of our own souls. I mean, in naraba, for Rahim indeed, my lord is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. So now after the truth emerges, the king immediately calls for us Follies. wassalam proclaims his innocence proves his innocence and then gives him a royal party. And then the king

From this column, Rahim Allah state that it is permissible for an individual to ask for a particular post or a job if you feel yourself if you deem yourself worthy of that post of that rank of that job. It is permissible for you to ask for that job. Just as how you serve Allah Hassan did some he asked the king put me in charge of the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, put me as put me in charge make me the Minister of Finance in Egypt, I will do a good job, don't worry about it. The King immediately listens to us via his route to Sudan. And he was immediately appointed as the minister of finance for the lands of
Egypt. Now this was the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala. My dear brothers and sisters, this lamp look from the well from the bottom of a dark, abandoned well
to being sold as a slave and then onto the house of the Minister of Egypt. And then the wife tried to seduce him, and then he was imprisoned unjustly and now lost behind him or die that raises him to the rank of becoming a minister of Egypt of that land lock. But the story doesn't end. The plan goes on. This was the master plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the seven years of abundance now start and use of Alexander's lamb instructs the people to cultivate as much as possible to harvest as much as possible to prepare for the seven years that are coming the seven years of famine and drought so they they harvest the cultivate as much as possible under the rule of use barley Serato ceram. He
rules over the land as the Minister of Finance in a very just manner, he rules and he guides them accordingly. The first seven years of abundance comes about according to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala and he makes sure that only a little of the food and provisions
Utilize for the first seven years of abundance. They harvested as much as possible and they stocked up everything. Only a little was used for their day to day needs. The rest was stocked up and kept in storage to prepare for the coming seven years of famine and drought. Now, the second year, the second seven years come about seven years of famine and drought. This famine hit Egypt as well as the neighboring countries it is it hit Egypt in a very bad way, as well as the neighboring countries. It even hit Palestine, who was in Palestine
yaku Bali salatu salam and the remaining brothers of use valleys, and how many brothers 11 brothers 11 by the structure in total with you so Elijah was around he's in Egypt. 11 brothers have used violence now to Islam and Jaco, anomie. salatu salam, we're in Palestine even hit Palestine. Now the people of Egypt they were saved by the help of Allah because of the strategy of use of violence in our salon, they had enough food to feed themselves. And they even had enough food to help the neighboring countries. So the neighboring countries, the people of the neighboring countries, they used to travel all the way to Egypt. And they had a barter system in place. They used to barter
things, they had valuables. I mean, they didn't have food, but they had valuables like gold and silver and whatnot. They used to barter it for food because food wasn't available anywhere in the sense crops. rice grains were not available anywhere. They were only available in Egypt and us Valley stock was from being the finance minister. He was a very clever individual use of Allah is not to Islam, he had made sure that there was enough for everybody, Allahu Akbar. So whenever these caravans came about, he used to have a barter system in place. They used to exchange things, and he used to give them food and they used to go back. So people in Palestine heard about this, and the
sons of iacobelli. also hear about this. So they go to their father and they say, let us go to Egypt allow us to go to Egypt, we'll bring back foot jacoba salaam permits them, and 10 of them go 10 of them who remain behind bieniemy bieniemy, the younger brother of use of islands, that doesn't mean remain with his father jacobellis. Now the 10 brothers, they go to meet us. In other words, they go to Egypt, they don't know about us values. They go to Egypt, and then use the values that Islam was informed that a delegation from Palestine has come
and use balista do some thinking about his family, he goes out to meet them. And he sees his brother's 10 of his brothers. Just imagine, after how many years after the very same individuals who left him to die at the bottom of an abandoned well have now come to his ministry. They have come to his palace seeking help right in front of him. You know,
he looks at them. He recognizes them, but they do not recognize him at all because obviously they abandoned him when he was a little boy. And now he has grown up now he has become the minister of finance for the lands of Egypt. They couldn't recognize him at all, but he recognized them immediately. Last Panama's Allah mentions it, we're just going to use
the brothers of use of they came to him for out of our home for whom to whom key role, he recognized them. But to them he was unknown. They did not know who use violence that was that happens. So after listening to their story, he furnishes them with supplies. And then he asked them about their family, you know, in a very innocent way. Then they tell us about their family about their father, Yahoo, and they also talk about their little brother bieniemy. So the minute they mentioned Vinnie, I mean use violence Raja Salaam, he says, You know what, I'm very interested to meet your little brother. So the next time you come, you know, wanting food because it's a long period, seven years,
yeah. So the next time you want foot, bring your brother and come because I'm very interested to meet him. And number one, I'm very pleased to meet you all. And I also want to meet your little brother.
So he says, Bring your brother and come then they tell him that, you know, that might be a little bit of a difficult task. Because our Father, you know, keeps him busy, keeps him with him all the time. So it will be difficult for us to bring him then use virus that was that goes on to say if you don't bring him, I cannot help you. If you don't bring him the next time you come, I cannot help you. You might as well go to some other land because he had Egypt we will not be able to do anything for you. Now when they were about to leave, they had their bags all loaded with food. And they had given their valuables to barter for the food. Use vajrasattva salon instructed one of the workers to
go and put back all of their valuables all of their valuable things into the bags, you know, return it back but they didn't know about it. They traveled all the way back to Palestine. They reach home and they go and tell their father about the Minister of Egypt, the kind of generous minister of Egypt.
They also tell him about his request to meet. Binyamin to meet Benjamin delillo. Brother. phenom Raja Ella Abby him call
in Allah moolah happy to learn so when they return to their father they said oh our father if we don't take our brother and go money I mean okay, they will not give us food, the food will be denied. So we have to take our brother and go the next time we're in Allahu Allah have we done and don't worry, we will look after him by the brothers and sisters in Islam. This these were the same words they used when when when they wanted to take use of violence that was haram and go. You have to banish that was now very old and frail. He recalls those words. And then he says Carla hell Amano con, La e la cama amento kumala I've seen him in carbon. He said should I believe in you? Just as
how I believe you all when you took your brother the last time and went
in the sense your brother use of the last time when you took him in? When should I believe these are the same things that you said at that time as well? Should Why should I believe you now? For wha hoo ha you don't have your da Allah is the best of Guardians wahoo Alhambra Haman and He is the Most Merciful of the Merciful for her as hammer Rahimi. Now why is this discussion was going on the brothers they open their bags to take the food out. And lo and behold, they were surprised to find all their valuables in the bags, all the valuables are returned. So they tell their father or father, they have even given the valuables back Look how generous and tight a minister he is. We we
have to take our brother and go. And if we take our brother and go the next time, we will get an extra load of food because now it will be 11 of us going it was 10 of us. There'll be 11 of us going and he will attend even give us back our valuables. It will be a very good trade, we have to take our brother and go and meet this kind, generous minister, now jacobellis that was not very stern, he says call an old sailor who had to email
me in a new hobby. He said I will never send him with you. Until you all promised by Allah until you give me a promise by Allah that you will bring him back to me. Unless you are all surrounded by enemies and you are all killed. If you are all killed, then that's a different story. But if not, I want a promise from you all by Allah that you will bring him back to me. If you can all promise then you can take him and go for them. Though most of our home for a long while Amana food working. So they gave their promise. And they said Allah is a witness over what we have promised to do, or our father. Because this time they were speaking the truth. They really wanted to take binyomin and
bring him back. But jacobellis that was wrong, he could not trust them because of what they did with use of anarchy. So that was set up. So now when they were about to leave, he advised as his son's a very important piece of advice and should I use pakala yada, yada, yada, yada, yada follow meantime, you were hit by the follow me.
All My Children or my sons, when you enter Egypt, do not enter using one gate, all of you don't enter through one gate, but enter through different gates. Now what's the purpose of him advising them in such a manner? This many brothers and sisters in Islam, the scholars of Islam, they, you know, they interpret this advice abuse by a Serato salon and they say that it was to avoid even to avoid even I because just imagine if 11 young boys who belong to one family here 11 young sons, if they were to go through one entrance, people might look at that family and envy that family. And think you know, what our big family and how many sons and whatnot. So if they were to go from
different entrances, people would not, you know, recognize them to be as one family and they couldn't avoid being targets of the evil eye by doing that. The evil eye is something true a controversy the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam some of us think you know, it's folklore. mythical thing is not true. It is true and it has been taught to us by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he also taught us preventive measures that we can take to protect ourselves such as reading the morning evening, a guard, reading ikusi and all these other protections that we can take and also must try our level best not to there are sometimes some people try to, you know, flaunt a
lot, you know, just because they have something to fight to flaunt it a lot. By flaunting you're doing nothing other than becoming a target of TBI. So try to be humble. Try to be simple and most importantly, take the
preventive measures that have been taught to us by the professor of law
SNMP in regard to even high time does not permit me to go deeply into it, but it's actually a very vast subject. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all from it. Even so the minute they reach Egypt, the two brothers, in other words who Binyamin and use Valley Serato ceram. They meet after such a long period they meet after such a long period, the two brothers, but still could not recognize us violated our land use violence that was not meant to be I mean, and without the other brothers knowing he informed him that I abused
and Binyamin couldn't believe his his use of my brother Yousuf, you're the Minister of Finance in Egypt. He couldn't believe his his his brother, because what did we say? They were full brothers born through the same mother, Joseph and bieniemy. So the minute they made the connection, US abolish that was Haram. He then told his brother, don't worry, I have a plan. And I'm going to set that plan in motion. Just play along, just play along. I have a plan. So now what happened? What happened? What was the plan of use violence that was wrong? And then what happened with the brothers of us values that was that did use violence to take revenge. All of this inshallah data we will
discuss in the next session. I tried to finish the story today, but we have run out of time. So shallow data we'll talk about in the next session, two questions, the ones who wish to listen to the questions they can listen and they can leave. One question that came in was in regard to
during Ramadan, can you? You know, take blood tests during Ramadan when you're fasting? Can you take blood tests? This My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, no issues whatsoever if you are only taking a little blood, because normally when you take a blood test, it's as if it's you're checking your sugar or whatnot. And even if it's through an injection, it's not much it's just one vial of blood, it won't make you feel weak, there's no problem. It does not invalidate your past. The second question that came was also related to
this and that was in regard to donating blood. Is it permissible or other? If you donate blood, will it invalidate your fast in regard to donating blood? There are scholars who say that by donating blood, it invalidates your fast like Imam Ahmed, Allah and others, but there are other scholars like Imam Shafi Rahim Allah who said that donating blood will not invalidate your fast but then you must take precaution that you must only donate if there is a dire necessity if there is like an emergency where you have to donate then there is no harm in your donating if you assure that you will not feel weak because sometimes some people after donating blood, they feel weak and dizzy and that might
actually make it difficult for them to continue with their fast. So you must try to you know postpone it to do it after mother if it is an optional thing after you're breaking if you're fast, but if it is an emergency and someone you know it's your blood type is the only blood type that is available and is an emergency and people need your blood, then there is no harm if you give blood even twice you're fasting. This is the opinion of the nama Shafi Rahim Allah and others as long as you can make sure that you don't feel to be throughout the day. But if it is possible to postpone and that is the best to postpone it until after you break your fast so that you are sure that you
will not you know in any way hinder your fast. So with that we conclude today's session is active offense at Amari Cooper.
