wirkkala Lee lady one, na hoona Jim Inhumans Courtney, Rebecca and who shaytani de Krabi fell Abby surfacey Jeannie B la seanie rubbish everywhere silly Emery wahaca Camilla Sania Coco Lee hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah He is mine. Once again everyone salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. So today, I have a tall order in front of me seems like a pretty straightforward idea. But this was one of the places insult use of that required quite a bit of discussion as far as I'm concerned, for my own understanding, and I think I'm at a place where I'm content where a lot Haarlem. But I find I find myself more inclined towards a conclusion about this
idea that I will share with you towards the end of my lecture. But my intention today is to kind of walk you through the process and the conclusions and the thoughts of our previous generations of scholarship about this idea and about that portion that's been so perplexing, so that you guys take that journey along with me at least a summary of that journey that's been going on with me for a few days, myself and Jeff sohaib, and others. So let's start off with where we are. So everybody's in the same place you guys are calibrated, we're in the story of use of honey serum. This is iron number 42. And now allows Odell is mentioning you know Lilith Ivana and Apollo lillahi. Vonda who
Najim in Houma, he said to the one he was convinced is going to be released meaning the guy that's going to be cut the Kabir, the one who's going to be pouring wine, the dream that was interpreted, so he knows this one's getting out of prison and getting out of prison soon. That's implied in the language. Okay, what does he say to him with good knee and Arabic, make mention of me in the company of your master? So or mentioned me in the company of your master? Okay, so, the master being the king, it's become clear from the context of the story, that the word rob the master is being used for several, you know, in several ways, but one of them is also the king because he ends up being
the cup bearer for the king as the story progresses and becomes clear. So now, when he says this to him, the next phrase in the Quran is where the debate happens, right, there's two ways of interpreting it. So let's look at that. The idea is for an Sahil shaytani the koala be, I'll translate literally First, the devil made him forget, I won't even finish the translation, the devil made him forget. Now the rest of the translation, there's two ways of translating it. Okay, so the devil made him forget to mention to his master, that's one translation, the devil made him forget to mention to his master, if we go with that translation, and that interpretation, that means the cup
bearer, the devil made him forget that when he got out, and he got his job back with the king, he forgot to mention use of to his master. Right, so that would be the translation. A, what's translation be for an sahoo shaytani dhikala be, the devil made him forget to remember his master or mentioned his master, not mentioned to his master, but mentioned his master or the mention of his master, the devil made him forget the mention or the remembrance of his master. If we go with this interpretation, many scholars classically have actually said that this applies not to the cup bearer, who forgot to tell his new employer or his old employer back again, that there's a guy named
Yusuf in prison I met etc, etc. But instead it's saying Allah meet the devil made use of La Salaam, forget to mention Allah, when he told the Kabir when you go out there, remember me or mentioned my name, but he didn't mention something about Allah when he said that to him. Okay. Now, these are the two ways of interpreting it. The second way, which is this is attributed to Yusuf Ali Salaam is actually quite popular. And it's also sought further, you know, substantiated by a Hadith, in which the prophet SAW Selim says something along the lines of had he not said such a thing, or had he mentioned Allah, he would not have remained in the prison for several years. So I want to start with
commentary on that Hadith, because the first thing I do when it comes to a hadith issue is I go to someone I trust, and their knowledge and scrutiny and research on Hadeeth matters. So I made a call to Dr. Akram nadwi about this hadith and he promised me that he's going to write about it but his immediate response was, that it's actually a Hadeeth motorcyle and it cannot be relied on and certainly something so sensitive, as the dignity of a prophet cannot be taken over hadith of that caliber. So that was his initial response, but he's going to write something in detail and inshallah when he does I'll put it on my Facebook page also for those of you that are interested. Now as for
the rest of it, there these are the two positions is did the devil make use of La Salaam forget to mention Allah when he was telling the guy get when you get out of prison mentioned me, he should have added something about Allah. Or was it the Kabir who once he got out the devil made him forget to mention to his master that it's you know, that it's actually Yusuf Ali said I'm in prison.
From a linguistic point of view, this is interesting. There are two points of view from a faith point of view. It's much easier
Go with the interpretation that it's the Kabir because why would we say the devil made a prophet forget, that's a harder thing for us to accept, right? So the easy way to go is the Kabir forgot the devil made him forget etc. From a language point of view, from a language point of view, you have to do a little bit of what you can call gymnastics. Okay, if you go with the safer opinion, because when you say the Krabi in Arabic, that's the Arabic portion, literally they cannot be he means mentioned of his master not mentioned to his master, but mentioned of his master, which means the cup bearer did not forget to dimension of his master, the copier forgot to mention to his master,
right? So from a grammatical point of view, the more obvious translation is actually the one that puts this on use of Elisa Lam, if you're you know, and the Quran is very clear in its language, right? So if you're going to go with the most obvious, what the language says is what it means, then you have to put this on use of the Salah more. But if you go from a, from a theological point of view, I want to say for interpretation, then you would say that you have to go with the interpretation mentioned to his master, by the way, even though the idea mentioned to his master, what would that imply is a concept called heaven. Have means that you say you speak in concise
language. And you don't say every you don't spell every single word out. But it's understood, right? So, for example, when you say for example, great. When you say great, you don't just mean great, you say this is great, or that was great, or this is excellent news, this is great news. But you don't say all of that you just say one word, which is what great, and it kind of covers the whole idea. That's how the English, the same thing happens in Arabic, you can have have in Arabic. And the scholars argue that here, because for grammar students, Vicar is a muster, it's an infinitive, and it's mobile, LA is after it, you can have here, so the Quran who the Arab be, he can be understood
ijazah. And as they can be, meaning you can translate this as mentioning to his master. But in order to do that, you have to assume that there's something implied but not stated, you with me. So basically, let's put this for those of you that aren't Arabic students, basically, if we go with the language as is, it sounds more like useful. And if we go with interpreting what may be behind the language, so a little bit of kind of deeper thinking, then you go with, it's the cupbearer. Right? Now, the thing is, Allah makes the case for the Quran being explicitly clear, right? And if the Quran is explicitly clear, and Allah speaks in clear Arabic speech, then it's hard for me to ignore
the clearer meaning from the language point of view, which points at use of it sound, right? My problem is the moment I read the ayah, and it was pointing at use of a Salaam, I developed a problem, because,
you know, it wasn't sitting with me that use of holidays, this would be attributed to him. Right? That the shape on made him forget at that time, and even the mention of shutdown along with you suffer a slump.
But then there's so much of our tradition that has actually backed that opinion. So I'm going to start with a little bit of intellectual honesty, my conclusion and if so, hips conclusion, at the end of it all, where we are our hearts are settled, is not conclusion a and it's not conclusion B, it's actually a C. So that's where we arrived at today at a C, I'll leave that C at the end for you. But what I want to do as part of intellectual honesty, is I want to talk to you about a as presented, even though I'm not convinced of a I'll present it as if I am convinced of it. What's the best way of looking at interpretation a that in fact, you so forgot to mention his master? Yeah. And
how would we understand it? And then I'll look at B and how that's been understood. And in fact, I'll instead of just telling it to you, I'll read something to you. And I'll tell you there's some special reading I have for you some a little bit in Arabic a little bit in Urdu and then I'll get to C sharp which is my our own conclusion about what we feel maybe the closest to the right understanding of this. So let's start with a what's a use of Elisa Lam is the one who forgot Yeah. Now the issue with that is first thing that because use of Allison forgot, it says FBI lobbies FEC Genie with gasoline, therefore he remained in prison you can translate the fire suburbia, therefore,
he remained in the jail for a number of years. So now that sounds like first Chetan made him forget to mention. And because shaitaan made him forget to mention the consequence of that was that Allah decreed that he should remain in jail for several more years and the Hadith morsel, which we're seeing is not super authentic still exists. And it seems to be reinforcing this idea that because he didn't mention a law, that's why he remained in jail for some more years. Let's first defend this view. Even though
I'm telling you further down the road. I don't subscribe to this view entirely. It doesn't sit well with me. But I will first defend this view, as has been dissent defended. Classically, I'll and I'll even add new defenses that weren't mentioned classically. But when I discuss new new ways of defending this position, okay. So first and foremost, the way to defend this view is that Yusuf Ali Salam is a profit and profits have higher standards. Their standards for anything are much higher than you and I have always been the case. Our profits are seldom frowned at someone who was blind, didn't scoffed and make a noise. He bulged his forehead at somebody who was blind. There's no way a
blind person can get offended if your eyes bulge. So there's no way to prophesize and I'm hurt his feelings. That's there's not possible he however, have to live in omak to interrupted the prophet SAW mid conversation. He's blind, but he's not deaf. So he was the one being rude. But a lot came and essentially corrected the prophets I send them very harsh language. And so Thomason started the solo with Abba satola. He frown turned his face on Allah because the blind when came to him. So you know, if somebody was interrupting you in conversation, you and I, and we got a little frustrated. Or even if he said, Excuse me, I'm in a conversation. None of that is out of line. None of that is
against Islam. None of that, but the prophets have a much higher standard. So the first way to defend this view is Allah holds profits to a much, much, much higher standard than anyone else. The second thing is use of Elisa Lam is an ambassador of Islam to all of Egypt, nobody mentions a lie except him. Remember, his family who's Muslim, aren't going on there in Canada, they're not they're not here. They're not in Egypt. He's the only representative of Allah and the legacy of the prophets. Only one that's here in this land. So every word he says, is as if Allah azza wa jal considers him an ambassador of Islam in this land. Now, mentioning Allah, He, first of all, he spoke
about a lion, this prison and he, you know, made that outline all of that, right. But the thing is, when you go in higher circles, when you go in, or when you're going to get somebody to do something for you, right? They we can understand this in contemporary times, when you want something done from a non Muslim society. At that time, you don't want to bring up Allah
who wasn't non Muslim to do something for you. You don't want to bring up a lie at that time. You're like, Why are you getting all preachy with me, man? I just Okay, fine. I'll mention you. But you know, by the way, you mentioned me, but only allowed controls everything. I'm not gonna I can say that to a Muslim. It's in a lot of hands. But you should mention, but if I say to a non Muslim, it might actually backfire. So somewhere in my mind, I might think that maybe I shouldn't be talking about a law. When I'm at the governor's mansion. Maybe I shouldn't be talking about a law when I'm at the dean's office, or I'm at a job interview, or, you know, like, there are places where I should
can talk about a lot bring him up even just as comfortably when I'm talking to a Muslim use Al Hamdulillah. Life is good. Right? But uh, you know, you have a job interview and the guy walks in and interviews he says, How are you? I'm good, thanks. But you don't say What? You don't say? Because you're aware that they're a non Muslim society, they might think that's weird. Well, for you and I, and maybe we maneuver that a little bit here and there. Yeah. And we say, well, they wouldn't get it. And maybe we're not held sinful or accountable for that. But the only representative of Allah in the land is held to a much higher standard. Yeah. The other thing is that he told he gave
them Dawa to Allah and talked about how there are multiple masters, how can multiple masters be better than Allah, the one
hears, and now all of a sudden, he said, mentioned me to your master. So the reading is, he said to him, mentioned him to your master. And ironically, the devil made him forget mentioning his own master.
So he's telling the servant go mentioned me to your master. And he forgot that he also has a master that you should be talking about. And I will you take my case to your master, while I take my case to my master?
Right? We'll go both ways. We'll do he but he didn't say that. Right. So that's, again, a way of looking at it. That may be I don't want to say incriminating, but points out he was neglectful of a lot of, you know, mentioning a light this very particular moment. But the strongest defense for this argument, honestly, is something coming from the surah itself. If you were to subscribe to this argument.
The thing is that if you are going to use whatever resources at your disposal to help your situation, yeah. Then that's not against trusting in a law.
And if, for example, you had a flat tire and you said, Hey, could you help me, but I know that if you don't help me, it is allowed. So in the end, we know you're calling the tire service. It's an act of leaning on the tire service, but it's not a denial of our calling Allah. It's not
For profits because they're held to a higher standard, we see a very similar situation later on in the surah. With his father, the thing is Yusuf Ali Salaam is in prison, he's got nowhere to, for anybody to mention his case. He doesn't know how long he's gonna be there. Nobody knows he exists. He's disappeared from the world basically. Right? So any chance he gets to it's a long shot. By the way, this guy who pours drinks is not a lawyer. He's not a governor, he's not higher up, he's not a VIP. He's a servant, for God's sake. So even if he does mention use of, there's a 99.9% chance nothing is gonna come of it. Like, it's not like the governor's son is making a request or somebody
important VIP, who has some kind of poll, this guy barely just got out of jail, so he doesn't exactly have pull, he's gonna be so grateful to even be released, much less have a job to be in a position to make requests about, Hey, I got a friend in jail. Can you help him out too? Right? So he's not in that kind of position. But it's sort So what I'm saying is, it's a totally a long shot. It's at best, it's a long shot. Right? And in that long shot, Yusuf Ali Salaam is basically taking whatever action he can.
I mean, I don't I can't guarantee that this is gonna work. There's no way but it's better than not trying at all. Right. Compare the situation to jacobellis. Much later on in the story. jacobellis sam sends his sons to get food from the administration because the food has run out, there's a there's a famine, nobody's got enough food. So they're starving to death. So they need government assistance, right? So he sends us and the more sons that come, each one of them will get a bag of food for certain several months, or the season, right? And he's worried because obviously, if people are running out of food, that means it's a really bad economy, right? And if it's a really bad
economy, then crime is up. And if crime is up, and you see some people walk in with a lot of food, what's going to happen? They could get robbed. So Yahoo, valet, Sam, first of all, they're going to a foreign country, Egypt. So they don't look like everybody else. They don't speak everybody else's language. If they get in legal trouble, maybe they won't even get legal help because they're not locals. Right. If somebody robbed them, they may or may not be able to go to the authorities, because they're not citizens. And they might not even be able to make their case. jacoba may be thinking if these guys walk into the city as 12 or 11, then some robbers or some people that are in
a bad situation might think, man, they're gonna get a lot of bags of food on their way back, we should follow these guys. And they're easy to follow because they're not dressed like everybody else, because they're not from there, right? So they might become an easy target. So he says to them don't come in from one door. Come in from multiple doors coming from multiple Why? Because if you come in from multiple doors, you're not going to look like you're an easy score when you're leaving. Now listen to the IR I'll read this for you Carla Buddha, he said my son's not at Holloman who didn't. Don't enter from a single door with alumina bobbin with a fabric cotton enter from multiple
doors. Well, my only uncommon Allah He mentioned a
while I am not able to benefit you, as far as a loss plan A going against the loss plan in any way, shape, or form. The only one who can actually give you independence from safety. independence from famine is a law. I can't benefit you in any way shape or form against the law, any hokulani law, the rule in the end, the decision in the end rests solely with Allah, Allah Hidaka on him alone have I placed my trust for your token value for the moon. And the the those who trust in Allah should only put their trust those who are going to put trust should only put their trust in Allah.
Then Allah says listen to this what a mother Holloman high tomorrow when they entered the way that their father told them meaning multiple gates mccannon uni and homina la him in shape that wasn't going to help them against a Lost Planet in any way. If Allah had decreed something for them, it was gonna happen anyway. ilaha jetten feen of cu so you know, cr kodaka except this was a need that was inside of the person of use of that he needed to fulfill a lot put a need inside human beings that when we have a resource, we need to take advantage of it.
If we have a plan in our head, we need to take advantage of it. Now. What I'm saying is what jacoba lam said it's a long shot. Maybe somebody's gonna rob you they're gonna rob you whether you come in from $1 all 12 or 11 doors. Maybe they didn't see you together. But when you got together at the courthouse, they see you together, right. So it's a long shot. Anyway, what I'm saying is Yusuf Alayhi Salam is taking a long shot. jacobellis is also taking a long shot, but do you notice a difference? When you jacobellis and took a long shot? What do you say immediately after? But I this can't necessarily benefit you with a loss plan at all. The rule belongs only to Allah. Do you see
similar language with use of a salon? No. So there is they're both taking precaution in a very kind of, maybe it'll work maybe it won't work. high probability doesn't change anything. But we do. What
We can, but one adds a statement about reliance on the line the father does, right? So it may be this may be going in the defense of someone who says Yusuf Ali Salaam, forgotten what that what you know, at the end of all of these interpretations, what do we have to learn that? If we accept this interpretation, there's still the question that is asked is, this is not just a book where we need to arrive at an interpretation and follow an interpretation. The purpose of interpretation is to learn something for our lives. That's the purpose of interpreting the Koran. How does it give light to my life and your life? We're not studying a story. We're studying the story of our lives. That's
what we're doing. ie the crew come Allah says is your mention it's talking about you. and I are to Lisa ylim, Yusuf and his brothers, they have things to teach you things to teach those who will ever have needs will ever have questions. So we're okay, fine. If we accept this interpretation, what do we learn because we're not prophets, obviously. But certainly the lesson we don't learn is if you forget to mention a lie, in some situation, a law might punish you for several years.
Right? A law might punish you for a long, that's not the lesson we're learning here. We're learning that when you are an ambassador of Allah, when you are maybe the only source of getting La ilaha illAllah to a certain environment, then you must be held to a higher standard. And the prophets have the highest standard, we may not get several years in prison or something like that, but they will be caught. They can be consequences that teach us maybe. Okay, so that would be the lesson that's learned, again, at the end of all of that, I reiterate that I'm not convinced of this position. But I respect it. It's it exists in our tradition, it's there. And so I hope I did some justice to it.
The second interpretation, it's not the it's not user friendly salami to the Kabir who forgot the devil made him forget to mention use of to his master. The complication with it is it's not the krahula Robbie mentioning him to his master. Right, so the the lomita is missing and the half is missing. Right? So both things are missing. The first thing I'll address is the theological point. And here I'm going to read something a little bit to you in order Actually, this is a minister in Islam he's Tafseer of this ayah and I'm reading some parts of it that are relevant. This is the part when he said mentioned me to your master.
So when he obviously were discussing the part the devil made him forget right. But when you listen to his law, he explained mentioned me to your master, you'll see how he thinks about the devil made him forget already. That's why I'm gonna read that part to you. Okay, Hazard me hijiki kagaku Manasa maka pedo daubney aka semillas Agricola. The Prophet Yusuf Islam made the request that if you find an appropriate situation a good opportunity, then maybe you should make some mention just bring me up to your Master khazamula Dr. Bhatia head scaleable, just supervisor by chakra Savita, the meaning of master here is the king basically summarizing Zika symbolizes anybody who goes to jail kiss
Monica Duran Duran may escape the element Masha had me at the vicar here meaning mentioned me he's saying mentioned me not just my name, he's saying this could this could mean this man saw the knowledge of use of honey Salaam, his ability to interpret as intelligence. So maybe mentioned me that I may be of service. So he's thinking along those lines, about the mention of use of renesola.
Now I'm highlighting a separate excerpt, as the use of this highest score is our is our cookie buena, Buena Park Yaga k jaha da, da da da da and sofka sorry, there was a bandhan shyed ec rasa is Muslim Monica cichocki qui shackle panda Osaka, Yusuf Ali Salam probably made this request to this fellow prisoner, because he is where there's nobody to hear his cry and there's no opportunity to get justice. Maybe the only way to get out of this oppressive prison is this slim chance. So he took it, do you see jeyes maksud kelia is that below was El Castillo Karnataka, Karnataka coolala tomado. Allah lucky enough enough here to listen to this carefully. Now let me translate carefully.
In order in order to meet your legitimate goal, if you use whatever means at your disposal, that does not go against the trust in Allah.
If you have a legitimate goal, and you use whatever means you can at your disposal, that is not your you're trusting on those means that are at your disposal. And that is not against the reliance on Allah. Our cookie manavi halki army hallettsville Shaka Sahaja Hohokam Naja is that will give the operator
what goes against the word coolin Allah reliance on Allah is that when you find yourself in a situation, you become heartless, and then you start using means that are not legitimate to get what you want. So he's saying when someone uses legitimate means, that is actually them showing tokens. And when someone becomes so depressed by their situation and says, Well, the only way out for me is to do some harm. What else do you want me to do? That's the person who doesn't trust Allah. So he's saying you suffer later.
In doing this act is actually demonstrating his trust in Allah that's what he's already trying to say. And that alakina is deep Mula Bandha. Wanna hear Jota cookin ampere heart bow torkel battery to Allah as far as the lies concerned.
Allah does not consider a sleeve of his someone who relies on him when he just says well it's in the Lord's hands I'm just gonna sit on my hands instead but giveaway Jo kar

Actually the slave of Allah who relies on him is the one who uses everything Allah has given him to put it to best use. licking her gamper hodaka Sudoku, Rampura parameters, okay, but every time he does use a lot of resources, he maintains the limits set by a lion never crosses the line. Allah doesn't want him to cross.
Yeah, he was Liam keihan. Here just Kalia hedonic halco paddock Yeah, this is actually the very test for which Allah created humanity. Or Julius kuniaki would you kill it, which is the purpose of life in this world? That's he didn't even get to find such a plan. But you know what he's not gonna say. He's gonna say it's gonna be the cup beer right? Now, when I was perplexed by this, we're still on V by the way, not c. v is we're still describing the Kabir and his his view. I asked my one of my favorite people in the world, Dr. Criminal de mela, protect them, preserve him and continue to bless the oma and benefit the oma with his knowledge and continue to grow him and his knowledge and
understanding. So all of us can benefit from it. I asked him this question, I put it out and I presented the problems to him. And the way I write to Dr. Akram is kind of politically incorrect. So I said, Well, here's my problem with the interpretation that use of it, Sam did it if you go with that interpretation, now again, this is politically incorrect, but I'll say it if you accept the interpretation, then the first sounds like user friendly some could forget a lot after having reminded them so much of a law. So it says if you know Do as I say not as I do, so it kind of accuses user friendly Salaam of being the example of talking about a lot but not remembering Allah
Himself. Right. So that kind of seems inappropriate for a prophet. The second problem is, Allah seems to be very vindictive, and his punishment for use of a serum that he forgot now even in the in the Quran, when you forget, if somebody forgets just remember a laughter that but forgetting to mention a line, one conversation, and then all of a sudden, there's you know, years of prison as a consequence doesn't seem like a fair connection. And that's not the picture of a law that's painted in the entire column the way it was depicted to us the weight loss attributes are the way of life is to have slaves as slaves for musala Islam did a lot more than not mentioned a lot he actually killed
Right? So it did that's key this seems to be a little bit of a harsh punishment. And what should a slave take away from that? What when we learn that we you know, what should we take away from it? And on the flip side is about if we go with the interpretation that it's a Kabir then the language seems to be going against it. So how would you can help me out here what is your take on this right? So usually, he'll just call me and we'll discuss it but this time, he was so kind, he actually wrote an entire Arabic article two pages. And what's happened to me? And he figured this is a question that others can benefit to so he wrote an entire piece on it. So I'm going to read the entire piece,
and I'm going to translate it for you. It's an Arabic because he's a boss like that. Okay. Well, isn't, isn't Oxford by the way? What are the idiots who alone Amanda and Sasha Nicola be? A question was posed to me about the phrase than the devil made him forget the mention of his master dimension to his master. Well, hello God Lila. fruitville Medina, Yusuf Ali, Salaam amela Sokka Malik. Is this talking about use of or is it talking about the copier? That was the question.
And so I say well, biLlahi tofi and allow only gives ability, Katana, Allah the Exalted, said, kala Kala Leela, Viva Na Na hoona Jae min Houma with Kony and are a big fan of a particular belief and a bit of he specifically with arsenic. So he called it the ayah which we're discussing is number 42. I call the use of Lila De Lima and the hoonah gin which means you subset to the one that he knew was going to get out men benei Sahaba Latina salado, aronia, between the two of his companions that from whom he had interpreted the dream, he said to the one that's going to get out of Guney and acidic al Malik, meaning go mentioned me to your master, meaning the king was far er

Well, must be Ron yahudi be Muslim at and inform him of the wrongs that has been done to me fine. Sahu shavon so the devil made him forget. So who's the him right? For kolani feet of seed for antiA and suffer shape and there are two opinions in the interpretation of the devil made him forget. Estella Allah FC ala Monaco Illa Conan there's two ways that scholars of the seal have gone in Alcoa one, the first one was to have a Pooja tabari who holds this view will nacala who Anupama I'm
In solid Minnesota, and this has been he transmitted it from several scholars that preceded him. And Hubbard Amina La Jolla, Santa Ana Gulf Latin heralded the use of Elisa Lam early the use of Islam incredible shape and that this is a law telling us about a slip up. A law means to be unaware and act of one awareness that happened from use of a salon because of the devil nesea Lucha de Cultura de la de lo be hyster la la la habima, who is he who he made him forget to mention his master and had He called on his master for help, then the relief he was seeking would have come much quicker when I can know who's alaba However, he slipped up in that matter, so I thought I mean, actually
have a decision and because of that, he was prolonged in his state incision in prison hubba hubba. So decision that that kept him there, but I would rather hire Koba, and this came as a consequence for him. So that's one opinion that I described to you, but that was a remember. That's a double g he has the
the reasons for, you know, preferring this opinion.
And I think he nyssma in this bar mitzvah to insert shaytaan MSRP La La Yusuf Ali salam o. Allah de la, fi Actually, no, I think I'm missing a page. Say Can you grab me my phone? I think there's a part of this article missing it didn't print.
Okay, now people know what your arm looks like.
because I don't want to miss anything he said. And I can tell there's something missing. So I'm gonna read it off my phone.
I hope it doesn't die.
I'll be back after these short messages.
And he writes to me so much. I gotta find it. Okay.
Nope, not that one. Not that one.
There we go.
Okay. Got it. So I read opinion at you. There was something missing. Okay, well, colasanti, manakala, hotaka and mohammedanism is hub. The second opinion is what w records on behalf of Muhammad in his hog, Anna shaytaan. And society that the devil made the Kabira forget masala who use of mimicry he ended up that use what use of it some had asked him to do that is to say mentioning him to his own King. What have you heard what had the Milan of Assyria and this is more than one scholar and Mufasa that holds that view? noccalula word so now he's going to criticize opinion a because he actually subscribes to opinion B. So he's going to criticize opinion a
colon alternate views of the first opinion seems if you accepted, it puts two allegations against use of
a thought Lula was the first criticism of Yahoo analyst irati murabbi that he was mindless or heedless of seeking the help of Allah. That it seems to say that he did not seek the help of a lot of his master, insider Saki when he asked Kabir was who I do hate Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah be a masala and asking for help from other than Allah is not something appropriate for the prophets. artemisa Well, I'm finding him in acidity, Amina FEMA, Camila Buddha and they're like among those who accepted their truth, and even those who stand in the place of truly being slaves of Allah, seeking the help of others and Allah is inappropriate. What am I Southern mean use of tilka Zilla
sarama hidden and when this mistake the slip up happened from use of racism he was held to account well how the tarnish did and this is a pretty strong criticism for use of Elisa amfi Allah who is somebody with a bad because use for use of Elisa Lam happens to stand in one of the highest places of suburb of patience and standing tall, standing, persevering. Women have loaded with our cleaner Darby and he's one of the best of those who's ever placed their trust in their master. I'll Mr. Athina be calling on him for help. When desolate Harvey Hill certificate, Abdullah hit Allah Illallah diadema kami he for somebody with thought, and this story hasn't been elaborated in the
surah in this in the in the last book, except to illustrate his high standing when it comes to patience and standing tall, you know, on the last command, while he stayed it below he were talking and he and to seek help on the Avila and to rely on Allah with the recruitment of alcohol. Now, here's the interesting part, he says and relying on a law is a matter of the heart. This is going to be a key argument.
To listen to this law to nafi Hill is the IANA witness and seeking help from people does not negate it. Hey, go, can you hand me the phone, I did not rely on the law to deliver the phone. So seeking people's help does not negate seeking the help of a law relying on allows origin.
And even if I didn't say By the way, the fact that you were able to get out of your chair and your spine was able to move is because allows me none of that had to be said for this to be valid. Okay. Well, here is our 10 feet of Elm of llama, but more on behalf actually, not only is it permissible to get to alleviate yourself from wrongdoing, to seek help from people, in fact, it's something you're commanded to do. What God is the island abuna Salallahu alaihe salam, well, what's the motivation behind it he when a Muslim in our culture and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam seeked help of others, even Muslims and sometimes non Muslims, and he is the chief of all those who
trust in Allah
will partner with Anthony and the second criticism in Saudi shavon Yusuf Alayhi Salam de Cultura de bois de la Usually, the devil, causing Yusuf Alayhi Salaam to forget his mentioning his master would not be something possible for him. For him now who come out of famine relief. I mean, Holly, he does a magic little bit he because he, as you can tell from the way he's being described as constantly remembering his master, well, how can the MBR and this is how the profits are good loom all of them for in the homea kurunegala haffi, Gianni himcolin then they are the ones in fact, they're the ones that remember align all of their states, local geography key tabulator Allah and Allah says in his
book in Nevada, a Silicon Valley himself been my servants, you will have no authority over them eliminated our communal Glavine except for those who follow you have those that are lost or gone away from the path for shaytani Allah Subhan Allah who Allah by the law, he must have failed and the sin that the devil has no authority and no control and no influence over Allah slaves who have been chosen and the ones that have been given sincerity. Were the hustle I
mean, what's what's the shape on the number who phone what, and even if some light, not remembrance of Allah, some lighting happens from the devil's whisper, they immediately catch themselves and they remember Allah. Listen to this ayah in Surah inilah Vina taco those that have Taqwa is Amazon Prime Minister a time when the group of the devil a group that comes from the devil even touches them does occur immediately. They mentioned Allah for either home soon, then they're constantly keeping watch thereafter. So that's the wave of people who have
been affected by law. And it's no secret for those who truly contemplate the book of Allah. Allahu Allah, Masha Allah Fie shamans. alotted ambia alayhi salam, Kabbalah hotel lobby by Manitoba to him. That every time Allah mentions the prophets having slipped up in any way, because Allah does mention Yunus on a Salaam masala, he does mention, he follows it up immediately by those profits doing Toba.
That's the Sunnah of the Quran of alliander Quran that Allah with the he mentioned the slip up by profits immediately those profits make Toba
for fellow cannons to Al Yusuf Alayhi, salaam hada, Salah letaba minha. And if this was a snippet from Super from use of eisah, then Toba from him would have been recorded he would have he would have made Toba. I'm actually thinking even about adding Salaam when those two came for judgment, and they disappeared and he immediately recognized and he you know, he fell into such that and he made Toba. Anyway, welcome young young son analetto but a man who was always still found, nor did the Quran recorded Toba from him nor an act of seeking forgiveness for Alberta and Nicola who established that he said with Courtney and Arabic And what this does is substantiate that when he
said mentioned me to your master Kowloon, GI
Joe Murphy other use of RAM, and this is an acceptable and actually commendable thing that he did and what it teaches us is to use our resources to the best of our ability and there is no blame to be placed on use of a system nor any criticism, the gfl colasanti so this was him criticizing view one now he's going to talk about the supporting view to view two is what that it was the cupbearer falcoda Thani, who had never saw the second view is closer in his view it's it's closer to the right when Oh fuck be mahkamah you surprised him and it's more appropriate with given the status of use of police around the world with the sick man and a woman and it metastock it's also in makes the ayah
more coherent. Meaning mentioned Meteor master he forgot to mention his master so he stayed in prison. Kind of a very logical simple progression. Right? So that's what he's saying.
Okay, yeah, as Baba Ji has recalled the reasons why I prefer this position Allah one first one and nothing is
But nothing is better in some way shape on LSAT law in a user friendly Islam. Well what about the law fee? First one that when you say that the devil made the copier forget and not use of. That's actually the truth too because the story goes that he forgot. So it's the most obvious interpretation because the facts of the story substantiate this exact statement for in the subpoenas to the use of because no doubt Kabira forgot to mention use of to the king and the mullet Hazara al Malik, Kuru Yahoo until the king finally saw his dream for Hina event of the Kurosaki cola use of a certain level. And at that time, use a phrase that was mentioned the Kabir remember Yusuf Ali said I
mentioned him with Sandy The second reason I prefer And mahalo Conoco, Coca Cola, who was Cooney and aerobics a Letterman use of Hi Sam Lacalle, Baka, dancehall shaytaan Joomla. Holly, this is kind of technical. If this was Yusuf Alayhi Salaam, forgetting to mention a lot, the words would not have been far unsolvable shaytaan, they would have been wakad and sahoo shavon. Meaning mentioned me to your master, as he forgot, as he forgot to mention his master, as he forgot to mention Allah or the devil, as the devil made him forget as because as he's saying it, and at that time he forgot, but it says, then the devil made him forget. The den is later on the devil made him forget. So there's a
timeline problem with the fire and the fire is actually a grammatical complexity. When you go with the interpretation that Yusuf Alayhi Salaam forgot, because use of ice allegedly forgot to mention a lot as he was talking. Right as he was talking that as he was talking can only be said in Arabic If we say what cut but there's no workout it's actually fat. So you can't get that from the FDA. And so he goes in a grammatical defense of that position.
So wakad and San Jose panjim La Jolla with Salus a third position. A third reason well who will you deal with Lehman and Alameda de su de la la Phyllis Bobby Wilma, Sabbath, or whoever the worker will Fairing for in Houma Hello Gemini season 11 Marine medic. And this is actually very common, common sense. And it's something that allows us and teaches us that there are cause and effect in this world. So Yusuf Ali Salaam, the guy did not mentioned him and therefore he stayed in prison. It's pretty logical cause and effect, well, who will love you, but God will fail. And that's actually what happened. He couldn't get out of prison until the king issued the order. Walmart ammeraal Malik
Balaji, la vida de cobre. And the king did not order his extraction from prison until after he heard about him from the Kabir. For that you can an akuna delicata man and so that cannot be a sin. Things that are in the world of cause and effect cannot be a sin, because they're not a lack of reliance on Allah. Let me put this to you in simpler words, so you guys can remember this lesson is a powerful and important lesson.
If you know we asked for help, right? But you can't ask for help of the unseen or from the unseen except from Allah.
But in the scene, I need help with my car, I need help writing this paper, I need help fixing my computer, you can ask help of creation should can lack of the work will happen when we are asking for help in the unseen from creation.
Also, when we're asking for things to change in the unseen from creation,
right? So for example, if we're asking for someone's heart to change, and you go to somebody to make sure their hearts, you know, the one who changes the hearts, that's a matter of the unseen. That's what the law, you understand. So people go to somebody and say, give me a potion that they can drink, and then they'll love me more. Right? They'll do these kinds of things. And that's actually you're trying to control the unseen. So you think but in the world of the scene, this is how things are supposed to work. You're supposed to be able to ask for help and you're supposed to do so.
And this is why By the way, Masada my favorite did not turn down to help when it was given to him.
My dad's calling you to pay you let's go get paid.
So he didn't say I trust in Allah. I just told Allah whatever you know, in the Lehman's Italian Highlands, okay, I turned to a lion said to Allah, whatever you give me, you're the one who can give me my back was broken. And the girl said my dad would like to pay you He didn't say excuse me, not you. Allah not your dad. Okay. He didn't do that. He said Oh, that's a lot sending me this girl to get paid by her father. He understood that anyway. It's got to Louie irati huddle Nana. Now the linguistic side when our other other huddle. colasanti Olivia Jana who is Chicago Louie and the second opinion meaning the cup bearer creates a linguistic problem linguistic problem meaning what
literally says mentioning his master, and we have to interpret that as mentioning use of to his master, so the use of is missing and the two is missing. So that's the shot locally. That's the linguistic problem with
Going with the opinion that I'm preferring personally, even though that's not my opinion, my opinion is seen remember, there's a C we're still on B.
so we're older da da da cola sunny LA,
Chicago Viva La Cana sappy mudgeeraba Mila CalHFA and San Jose Juan de cada usofa andara BYOD huddle Mana hatfill calm. And had it been the cupbearer use of what have been mentioned and then ENDA would have been mentioned meaning then the devil made him forget to mention use of to his master use of and two are missing use of an end are missing. So, there are two assumptions that two invisible words are there for you to interpret it. Well for job and muscle
memory, you have one that you have from Duffy will refer to it as Mahmud anomaly where the candidate who examined mamoun fine will not rule was off maslenitsa Botha to Allah wa hedeman have a coup de facto, the thing is a muster, which means remembrance, remembrance, this is a technical discussion, but grammar geeks will enjoy this part. So I'll summarize this part for you. He's basically saying that when you have a muster like remembrance, and then you say remembering of or men are mentioned mentioning, mentioning of use of to his master, when you have complex connections to an infinitive, then you can only mention one of them and exclude the others. And this is commonly done in Arabic.
So seeing the Krabi he, to represent decry used to finally be here, entropy is completely acceptable in Arabic, and there's tons of examples of it. So for example, although pseudo law is illegal, it's not a sulukim is a pseudo law. And then illegal, or macrolane even not in the Quran. macrolane even means the scheming of night and day, but it's actually you people screaming in the night and you people screaming in the day, but the Quran just says the scheming of night and day, the scheming of night and day we have represented all of it. And so you weren't mentioned and in the in the night in the day, the end wasn't mentioned. So this is actually a precedent. And there are many other Arabic
examples for why this would be the preferred view. Okay.
he, then so so after this grammatical explanation, let's come back to where we are Yusuf Ali salam, or the Kabir, he's arguing that this would be an you know, lessening the status of use of Islam. And the Kabir forgetting is logical also, by the way, something that even fortifies later on. Allah says what the Corrado met and after some time, he actually remembered, the words are, after some time he actually remembered, which means what, that before that time he had forgotten, which is exactly what said, so even that further substantiates it, but what his opinion See, that's what I want to come to you and the thing is, we have to be loyal to the language of the Quran.
And we have to be loyal to what we understand about the nobility and the dignity of profits. We have to be loyal to both of them.
The position that she for him and I are most convinced of is in fact, two meanings exist.
One meaning is well listen to this carefully now. For us the meaning meaning one is the cup bearer for God to remember his master
I'd be having said this before, I'm saying this for the first time now the cup bearer forgot to remember his master
and the second meaning is the Kabir forgot to mention use of to his master both times who did I attribute this to the Kabir so far what we read in the series one school says, use of one school Says Kabir the school that says Youssef says,
The devil made use of forget to mention his master, I am saying no.
The devil made the cup bearer forget to mention his master meaning mentioned Allah.
The conversation with the cup bearer was in two parts. A long part about introducing him to Allah. Yes. And then a very short part mentioned me to your master, meaning your king. Yes,
that happened. Now, which of those two from the way that even the speech happened from use of Isaiah, which one of those two is more important to use of
which one was mentioned? First, which one was harped? on which one was repeated over and over again? Which one was emphasized? Which one was the grand subject that he concerned himself with when he talked to this guy?
Allah, his robe.
And when he came to his only did he put that first and he put that at the end? He put that at the end. Did he talks about it exhaustively, already just meant barely mentioned it? He barely mentioned it. Now listen to what he said about a law. Go back. How did he How can you describe a law he says in Iraq to military
Mila you mean una bella Bella at home coffee wrote to me letter about Abraham I was harkaway aku mark and Elena Lucia Camila himanshi Valley coming from the LA

use of Allah Salam knew his responsibility, he is being taken care of by Allah. But if you can mention we can mention but he's being taken care of by ally anyway. But what he's concerned about is not himself, he's concerned about these two men, and they can find a lot.
And ally is teaching us that even a prophet doing data sometimes, and someone listening to dour sometimes doesn't mean that that person will remember.
So when that person left, the most important thing that person left with was not knowing use of exists.
The most important person that that that Kabir left with was knowing the lies there.
And the devil made him forget this remarkable dollar that by the way, this data, remember I told you how comprehensive it is. This that what we're learning from today.
And this da had no effect on this guy, the devil was able to make him forget his rub his rub.
He forgot about Allah, he got distracted and happier, busy with life. And he forgot about Allah. He forgot about Islam, the devil made him forget the remembrance of his master. You know what this is? Now this is a powerful lesson. Because that would mean that you can sit in the most amazing lectures.
And then forget, the devil can still make you forget, you could be sitting in front of a prophet like this guy.
Hearing the one of the most the most beautiful reminder of Allah ever given so powerful that it was recorded in a less final message for us to learn from it. And you could still forget, you could get one on one attention, one on two, in this case, from a prophet. You're not 1000 you know, huge Omar with his great critique comes and there's 100,000 people sitting there. No, no, no, you got one on two exclusive attention.
And he's treating you like a VIP before food comes I will get to you. I'll answer your question specifically, man, if you don't get that kind of personalized attention, you'd forget you have the devil can still make you forget.
The devil made him forget.
And if you can forget. And by the way, if this conversation had an impact on him, the conversation about Allah. If they think about this, if the conversation about Allah had an impact on him, there was no way he would ever forget you. So
there is no way that someone who introduced you to a line it touched your heart will ever leave your mind. Ever.
There will be people like that when you think of them, you just make dua for them. Like that person introduced me to Islam. That's the first lecture I ever heard. That's the first time I cried when I heard about a lot. I remember this person described judgment and it brought me to tears. I remember this person talked about how we should love the prophet and I cried, and every time you think of them, you make dua for them, you care for them yes or no. The fact that he didn't remember use of is only possible. If he wasn't impacted by the reminder of Allah, the literal languages, the devil made him forget to remember his own master. And when he can't remember his own master, the maker, how is
he going to remember the creation?
If you couldn't remember a law with that incredible reminder, then what what chance does Yusuf Islam stand?
You see previously in the surah when Yusuf Ali Salam was standing in front of the minister's wife, he said in the hora Bs and Ms wire, my master has been good to me in providing me housing, remember that? He meant Allah, but she thought it was the husband. Yeah, so it was dual duality. That up the word rub had duality. And it was duality in two ways. One was remembrance for himself. And the other was a reminder notice in this ayah there's a duality.
He the Kabir forgot to remember a love for himself and therefore forgot to give the reminder that the Kabir forgot to remember remind the king of use of holidays from both the language because the language problem is solved now, because the language problem is
How can the copier forget? What is it? How is it relevant that the copier forgot to mention his master meaning a lot? How does that hold in the story it actually holds in the story. It's crucial in the story. And it's a very powerful lesson in the story.
He forgot to mention his master.
And then the rest of the context makes sense. And the grammar doesn't have to be compromised. And the duality of the interpretation holds. And none of it has to be attributed to use of a certain
man because he forgot his master and therefore he forgot to mention to you so for some file, a BFF is Sydney thus he remained in the prison with us in in for a number of years. Think about this, also, Dr. Khan, I didn't read this part. He also mentioned, you think user friendly, some didn't remember a lot of those years that he stayed in prison.
So if you forgot to mention him once.
He didn't remember Allah that same day, that same night, the next morning, the next day, every hour, he didn't remember a law. And what does the law say to him? No, no, no, you forgot me that one time you stay in prison? No, I already decided about the prison thing. No, no, you don't get to No, no take backs.
No take backs.
Alaska tells us a universal lesson. And if it applies to his slaves, it applies to us today. So what's called a Buckeye, Dinah Sita mentioned your master when you forget.
just mentioned your master when you forget.
But here, we don't even I don't even go in that direction. We go both of those interpretations can apply to the computer. And thus we learn a very profound lesson. And that profound lesson is remembering Allah. When that slips, then other important things in your life will slip. And also teaches us when you forget to be good to Allah, it becomes very easy for you not to be good to people.
If he had remembered a law, he would have been good to us. And it didn't take much to be good to use of all he had to say is his name. It's all he had to say. But when you disregard the remembrance of Allah, the One who has done the most for you, then this regarding people becomes easy.
And maybe if someone is insensitive, and you know, inconsiderate and disregarding of people around them, and forget easily what they should be doing for someone and overlook their responsibilities, or they can help but neglect to help. Maybe the problem is spiritual. Maybe the devil is making them forget Allah. And that's why they're that way. It's not that they forget about people, but maybe the root problem is they forgot about that. Rob. Maybe that's what we're learning here in Ansel shaitan with the economy allows allowed to give us a correct understanding of his book. And may Allah azza wa jal committed to living the lessons that we learn from his profound book barakallahu li walakum
Hakeem when finally we accompany it with Kima salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
