Episode Notes

When his brothers suggested taking Prophet Yusuf out into the woods to play, their father Jacob’s reaction was one of deep insight. He said that it saddens him that they will “remove” Yusuf from him, signifying a gut feeling that something bad will happen to his son which he has no power to prevent. Believers must never underestimate or dismiss such feelings because sometimes these precautionary, protective thoughts are a form of divine inspiration to warn us against or prepare us for pending harm.

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

Welcome everybody to a means by the Koran, a series in which I love sharing with you stuff I find amazing about the Koran and today some insights from the words of Yakov Alexandre, father of use of who when his brothers told him that we want to take Yousef along with us into the woods, he's going to play with us, you have to, he's going to play around, and he's going to race and all that stuff.

00:00:31--> 00:00:43

He said something to them. And he said, in the layer Sunni color in the left, literally, and that will be, it makes me really sad that you'll take him away. It makes me sad, that you'll take him away

00:00:45--> 00:00:46

is remarkable language.

00:00:47--> 00:00:57

The reason it's remarkable is when something hasn't happened yet, you're not sad. When something hasn't happened yet, you're afraid. And he says, what a half and yet

00:00:59--> 00:01:03

I fear that a wolf might eat him. Because it hasn't happened yet.

00:01:04--> 00:01:29

Why is he becoming sad, that you'll remove my child, he actually becomes sad because he realizes already, they can't stop them. It's as good as done. The insight of this father, the insight of his father, and he doesn't just say that you will take him. And that Hulu that you'll take him the words are so profound, he says, I it makes me sad that you will remove him.

00:01:30--> 00:01:39

Because it's so subtle, does Javi remove him, you know, as opposed to you'll take him, when you say you take him there's almost an implication that you'll bring him back.

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

But when he says you'll remove him,

00:01:43--> 00:02:22

it's like he has this gut feeling. Something bad is about to happen. When you have that kind of a feeling, don't underestimate it. Sometimes your fears are sometimes things that are really like becoming a dark cloud inside your heart. And you feel like this is gonna if I let this happen, this bad thing is going to happen. It's okay to trust your gut feeling. It's okay not to have a rational explanation. He spelled it out even though he was in this situation powerless to do anything, you can tell that he was powerless to do anything, he was not able to stop his sons, even though he's so convinced something bad is gonna happen. Look, the thing that his brothers will do remove him is

00:02:22--> 00:02:23

almost certain in his mind.

00:02:25--> 00:03:04

The fear that a wolf might eat him is not a certain so he's not sad that a wolf might eat him. He's actually just afraid that a wolf might eat him. So that's still kind of like a possibility but not a certainty. But knowing his, his sons, he's he's more of a certainty in this child will one way or the other again, is going to get snatched away from me. It's going to get removed from my life. So Panama. So you know, the first bad thought sometimes that comes in your mind, a protective thought, a precautionary thought, don't dismiss it. Maybe it's from Allah. Maybe a less protecting you by just putting something in your heart. This could be a form of Islam. So we shouldn't dismiss it just

00:03:04--> 00:03:27

like you know, it came to your Kubernetes and it's not like it was revelation necessarily. It was simply just something a lot put a hot there's a lot put into law, put that into a Koran just to let us know, sometimes these feelings are there. And they're there as a precaution for you, to prepare you for what harm might come your way a lot of sense sometimes his messages to you in ways that you cannot put in Rational ways, you know, barakallahu li walakum wa salaamu Alaikum wa

00:03:29--> 00:03:43

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. If you enjoyed this video, please do share it with friends and family. If you want to see more videos from this series, click on the box at the top. If you want to see other videos, click on the box at the bottom. And don't forget to hit the subscribe button. Thanks
