Emily Sania conical hamdulillah salat wa salam O Allah Rasool Allah, Allah Allah, he was a huge man. And my dad once again, everybody, so I'm already too late and over Ricardo, my hope today is to cover is number 45. All the way to 49. Today, I know that's rather unusual for the series that we've been having, usually I cover an i o part of an IRA. And we take quite a bit of time for that. But I after discussing this with shift sohaib at some length, we both came to the conclusion that I think it's best that we, you know, keep the discussion on these IR together, round together. And there are some things that are most things here that are rather self explanatory. So I think the time we'll

00:01:59--> 00:02:13

move along quickly, I know we're starting pretty late tonight, but inshallah Better late than ever. So here it is. Let's get started with it. Number 45. This is now the king has told his dream of tie number 44. His advisors have told them that this is

00:02:14--> 00:02:57

one common you know, meaning they are jumbled up images. One comment that is peculiar about the language of the yacht, the word for dream that the king used is Oh yeah, which is singular, which means vision. And the word they used is alarm, which in Arabic can be associated with dreams also, as he is but the difference is one alarm is plural. He is singular. So he says vision, which is calling a dream. And they said dreams, or visions, plural, right? Then the root origin is also different when he's using is a word that's used for seeing literally also so that art can be used not just for seeing a dream. But as I see something right now, what I see before my eyes is also. So

00:02:57--> 00:03:32

it's used for in the in the world of dreams, but also in reality, which means that word shares a component of meaning closer to reality. And that's important because when the king saw his dream, he thinks it's something real. He's actually he's the way he's describing it is not just some fantastical images. But it's something bothering him enough that this is related to something very real, something in him is telling him that this is significant, which is why he brought it up. Otherwise, the king has no business is bringing up his dreams and talking to his staff about it, or to his advisors about it. The other interesting thing is Oh, yeah, is

00:03:33--> 00:04:18

when you say vision, it's because it's singular, all of what he saw because he saw seven fat cows followed by seven skinny cows, and then the seven skinny cows are eating the fat ones. Then he saw green stalks, then he saw dried up ones. So there's a bunch of things that he saw, but he calls all of those scenes, one vision. So he thinks all of it is connected in some way. It's one idea in his mind. So he's not describing them as multiple ideas as one. On the flip side, when the when the his advisors respond to him, this a woman Lupita will be highly mean, we were not good at interpreting multiple scattered images. And hold them actually also has is related to imagination in spoken

00:04:18--> 00:04:57

Arabic also, even until today. High Lama is also used for imagining something or an imagined dream that you may want one, you know, one day realize etc. So it has it's closer to imagination. Right? So when they use that word, they're actually saying that these are scattered ideas. They have nothing to do with each other. And they are basically a product of your own imagination. So that's the contrast between the word he himself used for his dream and how his advisors dismissed it. Now, when he says, well, we're not going to be really or when they say, Well, my nanometre will allow me to beat me, without me be highly mean. We cannot possibly interpret these things. We're not

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

knowledgeable in interpreting these kinds of scattered images.

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

Or, you know, nightmares even while Carla Latina jahmene, Houma and the one of the two that had been saved, the one that survived not meaning the you know, the two inmates one of them got executed, the other one survived. I was referring back to him now. And the one of the two that had survived and had been rescued said, What Dakota by the mutton as he made some effort to remember after a, you know, a bunch of time had gone on. So in other words, now he's this guy is in the crowd, obviously, he's not an advisor. He's the cub bear. He's pouring the drinks. And he the king just says a dream. And he's like, Huh, and then they're all listening in. And that doesn't make any sense. It's just a

00:05:41--> 00:06:17

bunch of jumbled images. What about you? No, sir, I don't think it makes any sense. And they're going around. Everybody's saying that these are just, you know, it's just a nightmare you had don't think about it too much. You're stressing over nothing. And this guy's pouring the drink. And now unless has he spoke up, and the word what dakka dakka is actually in Arabic vichara. The word Takara is from the firewall pattern, the tat and the Val from pronunciation. And that are from the same part of the tongue, your tongue moves to the front of the mouth, when you pronounce them. And what happens is, there's a fusion it's called Islam in Arabic. So delta Cara becomes if that if the

00:06:17--> 00:06:59

camera or the camera, so if the camera is the harder pronunciation, and even an easier version of that is in dakara. So here what the camera or actually it's not the color is is the camera, sorry, it's if data because there's no shut down the calf. So if Takata becomes a Decker in the VA, and the tower together, become a dud. And so that's an interesting fusion of the word it actually means to put very little effort in remembering. So it's the same word that's used in the Quran for when Allah challenges us to remember him by his foot through the Quran. He says, Well, after the seminal Quran, Allah Vicar, we made the Quran easy for remembrance for Hellman would decade. Is there anyone that

00:06:59--> 00:07:41

will put an effort to remember I was really interesting about that word is, originally the word is moot. AdvoCare. Listen to me carefully move that care. There's lots of syllables, right. But the TA and the VA are similar. So what the Arabs do is they fuse them and they say there's an easier version of it move vetcare which is a shutdown on the valve. But then there's even though that is hard to pronounce, because you have to stick your tongue out. So what's the easiest version of it? decades, decades, so the Val becomes a doll. So there's the original version with a vacuum, there's a slightly easier version was a decade and then there's the easiest version more decades. Now the

00:07:41--> 00:08:19

rhetorical purpose behind them could possibly be the easiest version means the least amount of effort required. So what that gives someone who puts a lot of effort in remembering was the kid a little less would decade, the least bit of effort. And interestingly the Quran in this case uses what dakara the doll is used instead of the dub because you know remembrance is anybody even if you don't know Arabic much, you know that Vicar is the Arabic word for remembrance or memory, right? So it's it's a doll, but instead of words zacchara it's what dakara what the doll is used to suggest that it's the least bit of memory that it took from him. It took us the slightest nudge for him to

00:08:19--> 00:08:23

remember meaning it wasn't very hard to remember use of rallies around

00:08:24--> 00:09:02

but it's the number of uses by the Obama team so this guy who's the you know, the one who was saved is pouring the drink and he's about to speak up we don't know what he's gonna say yet. But a lot adds by the omitted know the word oma. I think people know you guys listening no omoton Muslim or Muslim oma, the oma of Mohammed Salah la hora Shalom, oh my word for nation. But Omar is actually also a word for a Thai, you know, a unit of time. So Allah Almighty Medina and elsewhere in the Quran, until a limited time, and what's the connection between a nation and oh, my mom Razi tries to make the connection and say, sometimes the Arabs in the ancient times, use the word Omar for time,

00:09:02--> 00:09:42

because an oma a nation is a bunch of people together. And an oma in time could be a bunch of days together a bunch of months together a bunch of years together. Right? So this phrasing suggests after a whole bunch of years, because we how do we know it's yours? Because already a lot told us that he remained in prison with us in a number of years, right? So after a whole bunch of years went by months went by, all of a sudden, it took very little for him, for him to remember, it was very easy for him to remember the ease of it inside what the car or not when to be committed, really. Now, before I translate this for you, he's pouring the drink. He got the good news that he's going

00:09:42--> 00:09:43

to be saved, remember?

00:09:44--> 00:10:00

And now the king is asking, you know, in the UI, I'm sure we've the king's words, because it's important. When he astutely funeral Yeah, give me a fatwa. Give me a fatwa about my dream. That's what the king had said. Give me a

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

What means give me a judgement. Give me a judgment. Now. They said, We can't interpret it. That was their response.

00:10:09--> 00:10:22

This guy, when he's gonna respond, he's gonna say, check this out. He says, I don't wanna be outcome. without really, I will inform you of what it means of what is behind it. I'm the one who will inform you. Okay?

00:10:23--> 00:10:25

He knows he's not the one who's gonna inform him.

00:10:26--> 00:10:46

Who's gonna be informing us of hologram, he could just say, I know someone. Right? Or I met someone who's really good at this. He's not seeing any of that is he? He's seeing and the eye is actually mentioned twice. Anna will not be. In fact, I, I shall inform you.

00:10:48--> 00:11:14

There's a I twice here. Once in the verb one says the pronoun before. It says as if to say I and no one else. Let me tell you I have, excuse me, I think I can totally do this. And by the way, interestingly, he's pouring the drink for the king. So you can imagine he's right next to the king as he's talking, right? He's not in the back somewhere. And when he's pouring the drink, and everybody else is being dismissed, he didn't just talk to the king.

00:11:15--> 00:11:59

He said, No, it will not be Oh, come with me. I can tell all of you what it means I can inform all of you what it means. So it's interesting that he, first of all, he's not just talking to the king. And right now they were all talking and dismissing the dream. And now he's trying to look good in front of the king, and one of these ministers all in this all in one shot by saying I know it would not be okay with that, really. But on a subtle note, I want you to appreciate something about word usage in the Quran. There are two words so far that we've got two main words is a third minor term. But let's go to the two main words. The two main words are fatwa if that meaning give me a judgment,

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

and the other is informed me,

00:12:03--> 00:12:39

okay. And these two words keep getting used for dreams. Now, when these young men went to use of honey syrup, they said, inform us, inform us a bit now. Right? And then later on, if Tina, so give us the give us a judgement. So they use the words interchangeably? What are the two words inform us and give us a judgement. Now, it sounds like inform me about what this really means. Give me judgment about what this dream mean. Sounds like the same thing. But actually, there's a little tiny subtle difference.

00:12:40--> 00:12:44

When you say, if you asked me to inform you about something,

00:12:45--> 00:12:49

then it could be that I get the information from somewhere else and give it to you.

00:12:50--> 00:13:35

If I say inform me of the time, then I could check the time and then give it to you. But if you say give me your judgement, about what time I should go, am I gonna go check somewhere else? Or am I the source of the answer? I am the source. When you ask for my judgment, then I'm the source. If you ask me to inform you, then you also know I might be the source or I might get the information somewhere else. Isn't that the case? Now, in the sense of you coming in asking somebody tell me, inform me what this dream means. Judge for me what this dream means, right? Then you are saying that this person knows themselves. But look at what the Quran does. They asked Yusuf alayhi salam to inform

00:13:35--> 00:14:14

them. Use of valet Sam responds before lunch comes to, you know, to commit that really, I will have informed you informed. He didn't say I'll judge it for you. He said, I will want to inform you Why? Because he's not the judge of what this dream means. Who's the judge of what it means allows origin and Allah revealed that to him, and that's why he can tell them right? He's actually not the judge who's doing the fatwa on the dream. Alliance. And at the very end, at the very end of him telling them all this dream, you know what he said? This is the dream and latifi heat Allah devita stuff Thea, this is the one about which is whose judgment you were seeking.

00:14:15--> 00:14:30

The judgment that you were seeking is this. He didn't say I've judged it for you. He said the judgment you were seeking is this and then he said The matter has been decided. He didn't say I decided it. He said the matter has been decided suggesting who decided it?

00:14:31--> 00:14:39

Alliance? Allah has decided the matter about which the note will not be overcome. without really I'll inform you of what it means.

00:14:40--> 00:14:49

Oh, yeah. Where are you going to get the information Hmm. For RC loony, therefore, send me

00:14:50--> 00:15:00

I know where to get the information. Sir. Can I if you can just give me a little bit Can I just go and get the information for you? I know where to get it. I don't have it. I can inform you of it.

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

If you just let me go,

00:15:02--> 00:15:15

Okay, let me just finish pouring orange juice for you. And I'm out of here. And I'll get it for you. He's not telling the king where he's getting it from. He's still who did he bring up again for RC Looney send me.

00:15:16--> 00:15:52

You see if this rewind, what do we know about this guy? What we know about this guy is he was in prison. He asked you safale ceram for help. You have interpreted his dream gave him good news that he's gonna get out that dream came true. The only thing you syphilis I'm asked is, hey, if you get a chance, just Could you just mention me when you get a chance? Cool. Yeah, I'll do that. Did he do that? No. cheban made him forget, we talked about that, right? chatbot made him forget, for many years, he has no idea or no concern about user friendly. So finally, there is a problem of dream interpretation. And this guy during his pouring of the cup should be going to interpretation Oh, my

00:15:52--> 00:16:28

God, I forgot my friend user. That is yet Ah, maybe forget. This is like the best time to bring him up. It's like, you know, the, in the in the pagan tradition, the stars have aligned for me to bring him up. It's the it's the most golden opportunity. What better time to say, hey, I need someone who can help you with this is actually in jail. And he was falsely imprisoned too. So might as well get his case heard too, right? Did he bring any him up at all? No, he said, I'm the one who can inform you. So send me what he could have said is I know someone who can inform you so send for him.

00:16:30--> 00:17:07

Could we do that? Easy to say. And all use of raceland was asked was bring me up just say my name. That's all. Just bring me up. He didn't even say tell people I interpret dreams or nothing I just mentioned me. It didn't take much for him to remember Yusuf Ali Salaam, his talent and skill, but apparently was too much for him to mention Yusuf Ali Salaam, isn't it? The question then arises Why? You see in the previous ayah, we talked about how the king's advisors, his chiefs, his generals, didn't want to look bad in front of the king. So instead of saying, We don't know how to interpret that, they said what you saw was nonsense. So instead of acknowledging, I don't know enough, I'll

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

just say your question is stupid.

00:17:10--> 00:17:49

Right? That makes you look bad instead of me. If I if I say, I don't know that it makes me look bad. But if it's your questions, ridiculous, then it makes you look bad. So I can flip, I can flip the script on you. This guy on the other hand, instead of looking bad, he sees an opportunity to look real good. I mean, I got out of jail, I'm pretty lucky. And I work for the king. And now I have an opportunity to score this interpretation for the king because the king really wants it. And I can go and get this interpretation. And once I bring it over all the promotion, I'm gonna get call, please send for me. I'll get the answer. I'll get it. Why? Because he wants the credit. He wants that he

00:17:49--> 00:18:05

wants that. That advantage. Right? Everybody's got to move up, right? You know, in the corporate world, those of you that work in the corporate world, everybody's trying to cut everybody else. And if they can take it, they'll be real nice to you. Because they want your help, because they know you get the job done that they can do. And once you get it done, they take all the credit.

00:18:06--> 00:18:22

This is this guy about like corporate ladder right here. For RC loans, send me Don't give credit in your report. Hey, could you help me with this presentation? put the whole thing together. Great job Smith, great job with the report. Thanks that it all by myself. And you're just looking at like,

00:18:23--> 00:18:26

you. You didn't do that, but you made me do it.

00:18:27--> 00:19:09

And I thought I was a personal favor or whatever. But you know, you took my position and moved up, you see. So now he says send me an what's not been mentioned his soul. He was sent forward. Now, he when he mentioned this, and he says this, I believe the guidance from this ayah really is to understand characters like that sometimes you genuinely help people and you don't ask for much in return. Right. But it's already set up on made him forget. But even when Chapin failed to make him forget, and he actually remembered he still didn't want to remember Did he? Then other motivations came in the way. Right? So it could be that you genuinely helped someone. It could be like that. But

00:19:09--> 00:19:18

even when they have the opportunity to do good, but to do good by you that will cost them nothing. Nothing but just being honest. Don't expect it in return.

00:19:19--> 00:19:31

Don't expect what you you know what i did so good, so much good to them, then maybe they'll return that good back to me, doesn't work that way. And if you start thinking that way, you will lose your motivation to be good to people.

00:19:32--> 00:20:00

Because you'll keep expecting that they'll give you back and you'll keep hitting disappointment after disappointment. And then you'll end up telling yourself what's the point of me being good to anybody. I don't want to help anyone to everybody's looking out for themselves anyway. This is why when we do good, we don't do good for another. We do good first because it's an act of worship. Allah has given me the opportunity to do to do good. And this person that's coming to me is an opportunity sent by a law that is being written for me. That's all and once it got written my part

00:20:00--> 00:20:31

I'm happy not because they got helped. I'm first happy because it got written for me. That's it. I have no expectations in return. And when that happens, a lot might surprise you with return. But that return came not with your expectation. You see, this is the same attitude when we give charity. This is the same attitude when we help somebody. This is the same attitude when we teach somebody, you know, an old Arabic they have this like, there's two readings of this poem, or Alamo hora, Maya takala Yeoman for the Master dasanagu Rahmani

00:20:32--> 00:20:43

Ali Mohammed Nava mill kawaii Panama coffee Kala coffee. Hey, Johnny, another reading of it is Easter does I do. So they say, I taught him archery every single day.

00:20:44--> 00:20:52

You know, archery, bow and arrow hit the target I taught, I taught him how to hit the target every single day, the poet says, and when his strike got perfect, he shot me.

00:20:53--> 00:21:12

That's this next line. And he says in how many times that I teach him how to make poetry, right? Because the poetry is when you say a line, and it's got a certain number of syllables. And the next one has to have the same number of syllables. How many days I practice with him to make his rhymes perfect. And when his rhymes got perfect, the first poem he wrote was to dismiss

00:21:13--> 00:21:51

the that's the poem. And what's the point of that poem? Are you do good to someone, and they turn the tables on you, right? But that's the worst case scenario. But at the at the best, in the at the very least, you could have just mentioned me. Now, don't expect that either. You could say it, but it's just let it go. Even if you ask for someone's help, just know that if they decide to help you, then that's a favor from Allah would not something you and I deserved. You and I should expect, just let expectations from people go a little bit. We're talking about favors, we're not talking about lead expectations from your employees go or let expressions, expectations from your children go or

00:21:51--> 00:22:18

your students go, there are people that you have rights over them. And they better fulfill their obligations. That's different. If I paid somebody to do a job, I can't say I let it go. It's in the hands of a law. It's in the hands of a law, but I am paying you until the job gets done. That's that's different. But we're talking about asking favors, right? What when when you start when you if you ask a favor, and it happens, sometimes you want a favor? Sometimes you ask for help. But if you don't get it, it's okay. Not the end of the world.

00:22:19--> 00:22:57

You don't have to worry, you know, and it could be there's different reasons. One reason shaitaan made them forget, that already happened. The other reason if even a shutdown didn't make them forget their motivations changed. Like they saw maybe that helping you might compromise an opportunity for them to get ahead in some way in some illegitimate way. This is an illegitimate way to get ahead, giving yourself credit for something that you don't know. And but but people will do that. And that's okay. That's life. Don't get hung up on it. Don't have a grudge about it. Why? Why am I saying all this? Because he will go back to prison, isn't it? After so many years of forgetting you

00:22:57--> 00:23:16

suffer a slob in jail. He's going to go back. And now he's, I want you to imagine yourself because you know, we read Quran, we studied of seed. But we don't understand that. First and foremost, sometimes this stuff happened. This is real. This guy's real. He said, I'll tell you what it means boss, can I go?

00:23:17--> 00:23:38

Go ahead. And why would the king sent him? Those guys wouldn't send them because they want to dismiss it. The king is really concerned about this dream like Well, whatever. Just go ahead, go. If you can bring me something, you know, what do I What do I have to lose? except some more orange juice? So go. So now when he's gone? What's going on in this guy's head as he's on his walk to prison?

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

What am I going to tell you? So

00:23:43--> 00:24:04

I did kind of forget to ish. I mean, he all he asked for me was to mention him and I, I didn't do that. And now I need his help with the exact thing he helped me with before dream interpretation. So I'm going to go back and say, Hey, bro, I totally let you rot in here and forgot about you. And yeah, but you know, could you help me again?

00:24:06--> 00:24:21

How that's not gonna work, is it? Maybe I should act like none of this happened and pretend that I owe him nothing. Pretend that I don't even have to apologize for forgetting. I'll act like we did you say mentioned. I don't remember you telling me that.

00:24:23--> 00:24:55

We talked about? I'll pretend that that exchange never even happened. I'll meet him like we're best buddies. And hopefully, he'll give me the benefit of the doubt and think, Oh my god, he didn't hear me properly. Did I even say that to him? He'll start doubting himself. You see. So he comes to you, sir, for a sermon the next day. Look at how the ayah begins. He's immediately already in the next day. He's already in prison. He's already on the other side of the bars, user friendly service there. And it goes user. Is it the user of

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

a great true artist guy, the good guy.

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

acidic actually comes from Sid truthfulness. It's a secret to Kabbalah ravenfield, which means in this case, the guy who's truthful like nobody else, man, you are honest, like nobody else. You are so sincere like nobody else. So deep can mean goodness of character. And so they can mean incredibly true and what he says. So it's two prong, man, whatever you said was so true. What What could that be referring to the dream interpretation? But he did spend some time with him in prison. What else could it be referring to man, your character, the way you carry yourself? You're such a good guy. You're true in every respect, bro. You serve my real good, true friend, by the true guy, the

00:25:45--> 00:26:16

truthful guy. How you're so great. That's how he starts. And you have to be interesting. Last time when he asked him, they asked him a favor. At the end. They said in nanorod terminal mercy, we see you from good people. We see we think that you're good you can help us he comes back with a compliment first. Why? Because he wants us to do something for him and manipulative people when they want to use you. They will say the nicest, kindest things to you before they ask you for something

00:26:18--> 00:26:28

and they will stab you in the back with a smile on their face and to ask for just Akela Hydra Mashallah, thank you so much May Allah reward you

00:26:31--> 00:26:36

that's gonna happen. This guy cones, use of a user of

00:26:37--> 00:26:58

the quick he remembers his name calls him this truthful, honest person. And he goes amazing Athena 370 bacara. Let's get right down to business. I have a lot of time. Here's the translation straight up use of truthful line after enough incident Eva karate. Could you judge for us about seven cows 17 that are fat. Yeah.

00:27:00--> 00:27:08

That seven skinny ones are eating well, several similasan 107 green stalks. Well, how will you be sad and other ones are dry? Did he say it's a dream?

00:27:09--> 00:27:49

No. Did he say it's from the king? No. Did he say what this is about? Now Brahman? A little bit of hurry. If people find out that I was asking you, I'm going to get caught. You know, this is what this is similar to earlier on in the story. Remember when Yusuf Ali son was being traded like a bargaining chip? And the people who first found him wanted to get rid of him real quick before their master found out? Right? So they were shall be someone in boxing Gara him Mr. Duda they got rid of him for a cheap price. Quickly. He's like use of row seven cows fat seven skinny, green socks. Because Yeah, there's no small talk in the middle. Just use it have great guy come in. And quickly

00:27:49--> 00:28:22

quickly, because he wants the answer quick. So you could do what? Get out of their boat before they find out who he was talking to. He wants a quick so there's no small talk. Hey, it's been a long time How you been? Man? I put in a good word for you. But they just didn't want to listen, you know? And none of that stuff. No excuses. No, nothing gets right into it. Once you suffer, listen to answer him. And so when he does that, now I Lee and by the way, Athena, give us a judgment. Now tell me you're not saying I got a dream this time. He knew if he says man I see in another dream. You saw it sounds like

00:28:23--> 00:28:52

okay, I can tell you what it means. How about you go mentioned me first. And I'll tell you what it means. He could do that. Right? He doesn't say judge for me. He said judge for what? Us? Now What's he trying to say? Man, there's a bunch of us really concerned, a lot of families concerned the whole community's concern. We don't know what else could refer to right. So it opens up with Hey, this is not just about me. There's people that are really worried. And I think you're a good person you'd like to help people. This is a this is bigger than you and me, bro.

00:28:53--> 00:29:06

This is bigger than all both of us don't. It's not about me. It's not about my own cause. So he's trying to sell it to him as a communal thing because he knows Yusuf Ali Salaam is concerned about the larger good, right? That was the AC by the way.

00:29:09--> 00:29:09

Not thunder.

00:29:11--> 00:29:24

So some so when he says this to him, and he describes the dream, he literally repeats the words of the king. Yes. So he repeats the words of the king, not telling him it's from the king. And by the way, it would have been important for us to know that that's from the king.

00:29:26--> 00:29:45

Because what he should do with that a king has to take certain kinds of actions right? Then he says, I Li ajio Elena sila Allahu Allah moon. I'm hoping that I can go back to people so that they could know hopefully they'll know. I'm hoping I can go back to who the people is he going to go back to people?

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

He's going to go back to one person who's he going to go back to that he could have honestly come in said that Allah or God Allah Maliki Allah, Allahu Allah. I can so I can go back hopefully to the king so he can know. The King saw this dream.

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

He's being dishonest because dishonesty takes many forms. And one of the forms of lying to people is withholding information.

00:30:09--> 00:30:13

omitting withholding information is a form of lying.

00:30:14--> 00:30:19

Okay? So if you tell Hey, what did you do today? i?

00:30:20--> 00:30:33

That's true. But after you ate you also that this, this, this, this, this and this. There are other things you did. Now you told the truth when you said I hate. But when you omit certain other things that you did conveniently, and you skip over three of them and say, and then I slept.

00:30:35--> 00:30:38

Yeah, but in between you stole a computer. It's on security footage.

00:30:40--> 00:31:22

Right? When you skip that, that's how that's lying to. But I know I told the truth is you're going to go back to some people. Yeah. Well, some people know after he speaks, yeah. But he's deliberately hiding the facts from Yusuf Ali Salaam for ulterior motive, because he doesn't want use of a salon to know. And he's got the ear of the king. Because if he says that use of Alex, I'm gonna say So wait, so you serve the king drinks every day for the last few years. And you couldn't bring me up once? You couldn't do that. I mean, the cup bearer is supposed to be the guy who talks small talk with the king all the time. Right? Well, you look stressed out today, sir. You know, want me to pour

00:31:22--> 00:31:50

some extra for you. They can chat about whatever you could have brought it up. And all this time, he doesn't want to give you simply some the opportunity to have that leverage on him. So he says no, I'm here as a public servant. For the larger benefit of the community. I come to you, because people may know, also the main no mean. So they know, they may know what this dream means. But also, they may know that you're pretty good guy, maybe you'll get out of here if they know. So this might help you out too. I'm trying to look out for you, bro.

00:31:51--> 00:32:07

Cuz if they know, I say, Where did you get this interpretation, and I'll tell them it was you. And then maybe you'll get a chance that you've been hoping for that long alone. The other interesting thing about this, the only hours you know Sila halloumi. Alone, is that he is now telling you so far they sort

00:32:09--> 00:32:46

of the way he told him without mentioning that it's a dream, he just got right into it right cows and stocks of greed and all of that, that suggests that this kind of thing was very common. People talking about dreams was a very common thing in society. And people shared that with each other. It's actually almost like, if I were to compare to something, people nowadays talking about their emotions, going to a counselor or a therapist, right, getting some kind of back in the day. And even now, of course, when you have a lot of anxiety, when you have a lot of stress, when you're depressed or something, you'll see certain kinds of dreams, and they'll bother you. And you feel the need to

00:32:46--> 00:33:20

talk to somebody and a lot of times you'll go talk to a psychiatrist, or psychologist or counselor or somebody to help you figure out why am I keep? Why do I keep seeing these images? What part of my conscience are they coming from? Right? But back in the day, it wasn't just about psychology, it was more spiritual? What could what could the unseen world be telling me? Right? And so they were superstitious people in that sense. Now there's a reality to the unseen, from a revealed side of things, but they have no access to that only a Prophet would have access to that. But anyway, so he poses this to use a funny Salaam as if it's a public service. In this you find a few things. It's

00:33:20--> 00:33:29

pretty ironic that when he came back to that he came to you so for example, he remembered the dream word for word, the knee,

00:33:30--> 00:33:33

which is pretty interesting for a guy who forgot to mention one name.

00:33:35--> 00:33:38

When it comes to it, his memory is perfect.

00:33:39--> 00:33:52

And when it comes to some other things that don't serve His purpose, he forgets. It's remarkable that there's an irony that's shown in this so now he comes to you, somebody tells him the stream, use of honey ceramah remarkably,

00:33:53--> 00:34:34

has been given revelation from Allah, it seems and I'm not telling you there's an ayah that said, Allah revealed this to him, but allows the will it's already been established in the in the surah, you will come into the Leela Hadith, Allah will teach you the interpretation of all kinds of speech. As soon as Yusuf Alayhi Salam hurted, he knew that this is a state of national emergency. And he knew from Allah, that this is something that must be put into action immediately. And he knew that it's not one or two people that have to do this. It has to be the entire nation doing it, which means it has to be executed at a governmental level. He knew this immediately. And you can tell he

00:34:34--> 00:35:00

knew this immediately, by the way that he responded. By the way, the first time he interpreted a dream. It was for two individuals, yes. Now he's interpreted and for the benefit of two individuals, let me qualify that statement. he interpreted a dream for the benefit of two individuals. This time he's interpreting a dream for the benefit of an entire nation. Right now those two guys whatever was going to happen to them was going to happen.

00:35:00--> 00:35:34

fairly quickly, but he needed to give them that law first, didn't he see the importance of giving them that? Well, first, this time, it's a national emergency. It's an emergency for the welfare of the entire nation, he's not going to wait to give them data. And until they hear the message of a law, then they should hear what this dream means. Because the way you think about an individual is not the same way you think about a community, when you have a community's concern in front of you, their worldly well being even this is all about their worldly well being, that well being immediately takes precedence.

00:35:35--> 00:35:45

In fact, in the Quran, when we give to the poor when we help them miskeen when we, when we give to those that are in need, and society, Allah did not put a condition on this, give them that well, first.

00:35:46--> 00:36:24

In fact, when we feed, Allah says in the monitor Mo, commonly watch Allah, he were feeding you from just to me to less face. In other word feeding, we're not giving you food, to preach to you, we're giving you food, because we should give you food because you're hungry. That's why and we're not doing it for you, we're doing it because we can meet Allah, the One who put food in our bellies is going to be asking us, so that's why we're doing it. There's no ulterior motive, except public service is a motive by itself. And it's a prophetic mandate. It's so powerful that at an individual level, he got to know them and gave them some data. But at societal level, when something impacts

00:36:24--> 00:36:27

all of society, you he put his data to the side.

00:36:29--> 00:37:09

And he took the revolution Allah gave him and the revelation was what this dream means. And he gave it to them directly. And the next couple of hours are extremely the way you can talk think about them is they're just secular. If he's not telling them to pray, he's not going to tell them to make us too far. He's not telling them to go back to nothing, listen to this, what is use of polysiloxane Kala he said those that are una sobre su Nina de urban, you are going to crop you are going to farm seven straight years. That means back to back to back, meaning you better not let a day go to waste uni and you you are going to do this. By the way. What's the difference between do this and you're

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

good, you're doing it?

00:37:11--> 00:37:14

Do this and you're doing it? Let me put this in Simple English for you.

00:37:15--> 00:37:19

I have a child in the house and I say

00:37:20--> 00:37:34

go to the garage. Go to the garage, and get me Get me the bottle. Okay, let's there on the side. Good. Suraj give me a bottle. What's the difference between saying go to the garage and say, you're going to the garage and you're getting me a bottle right now.

00:37:35--> 00:37:50

You are going now go you are going now. grammatically When I say go that's a command. That's called the imperative verb. When I say you are going, that's actually a statement of fact.

00:37:51--> 00:37:54

Right? Because if you were going, I'd say hey, you are going?

00:37:55--> 00:38:00

Right? Sometimes you give a command in the language of facts.

00:38:01--> 00:38:16

Like when you say to somebody, you're not going anywhere. Instead of saying don't go anywhere, what do you say? You're not going anywhere. You know what that means? That means it is so certain that you will obey this command. It's a matter of fact,

00:38:17--> 00:39:00

you speak with such authority that you don't say don't go, you say you're not going full stop. Even at a full stop. You don't even put exclamation mark even though you mean 18 exclamation marks, you say full stop to Okay. Now, what's happening here does that are una, you are going to farm seven years back to back the oven also means with relentlessly meaning when one of you gets tired, the other one takes over there is no time to rest you need to crop you need to lay the seeds out in all of the land as much as possible. Without taking breaks. Everybody needs to get to work and do everything they can to farm night and day. This is a state of emergency. And this needs to continue

00:39:00--> 00:39:14

relentlessly for how long, seven years. Basically, he's telling an entire country to drop everything else and put put themselves to work seven days a week, day and night exhaust themselves. Is that how nations work?

00:39:15--> 00:39:30

Can you tell a nation to do that? No. And if even if you could force a nation to do something like that, you would have to have military control over it. You would have to have governmental power over it. So the fact that he's speaking like this, almost as if he's speaking as if he's the government.

00:39:31--> 00:39:54

The Tony's taking is very authoritative, very commanding, he knows what he's talking about. You are going to be laying crop for seven years nonstop from our house up to him for the roof assembly. And whatever you harvest at the end of the season, whatever grows, leave it inside the stalks. Leave it inside the ear because you know when you peel the corn, so leave the peels on don't peel it.

00:39:56--> 00:39:58

Whatever you grow, leave it inside the peel

00:39:59--> 00:39:59

it

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

It's pure illa kalila mata calm except a little from which you are going to eat. It's also interesting, stop eating a lot,

00:40:10--> 00:40:15

you're going to see a lot of crop, you're going to see the fridge full, but eat very little.

00:40:16--> 00:40:44

And don't, don't, don't unpack the rest of it, leave it there. He's commanding the end, he said, Guru, you Leave it, leave it in its stock, except a little that you're going to eat. And the little from which you're going to eat, meaning eat very, very little, learn to eat less and conserve and save and save and save for seven whole years. For seven whole years. This is what you call a conservative economic policy.

00:40:46--> 00:41:00

You're gonna see a lot of money coming in, you're gonna see a lot of food coming in. You just like you nowadays, you see a huge giant, you know, fridge or you go to the grocery store, and you see you you're in the mood for one slice of cake, but they don't sell you a slice of cake, they sell you the entire cake and you're like,

00:41:02--> 00:41:07

you know, you want the whole thing. So what if the rest of it'll go to waste? I got my slice.

00:41:08--> 00:41:47

Or you have this the want of more gluttony? He says, No, you're gonna have to store as much as possible, and you're going to work extra hard. You want me to work extra hard and eat extra less? What is this? The only way to survive? That's the policy I'm giving you. And you got to do this for seven straight years from my team in the valley, cassava OMG, Darden and after that they're going to be seven extremely difficult years. Wait, I thought those were hard because we were working hard. No, you were working hard to get ready for the actual the hard years, seven intensely difficult years are coming. Listen to the language Jaco lamarca dum dum, Donna, those seven years are going to

00:41:47--> 00:41:49

eat up everything you prepared for them.

00:41:51--> 00:42:01

It's interesting, not you're gonna eat up what you prepared, the seven years are gonna eat up what you prepared for them, you know how you say, Man, this year was very profitable.

00:42:03--> 00:42:05

Right? Or this year was very damaging.

00:42:06--> 00:42:11

Or this year ate up all my savings. The last two months ate up all my money.

00:42:12--> 00:42:56

Sometimes we use the word time to describe as if it's a person eating something using something, right. So time eats away too. And he's now telling us how Allah taught him to interpret the dream. The cow, the skinny cows represents starving people. And starving times, the fat cows have been eating real well, so they're stored up on the fat, and the skinny ones are going to eat the fat that's leftover on the fat ones. And it's interesting that cows were used because cows are a representation of farming isn't it. And immediately, without cows, you can't really find because you can irrigate the land. And then the next part of the dream is there's the stocks, which is directly

00:42:56--> 00:42:57

farming.

00:42:58--> 00:43:37

And seven of them are, you know, green, and seven of them are dried up, which means seven years you're going to grow and seven years, you're not going to grow at all, nothing's gonna grow. So those seven green ones are going to be the ones that save you when when everything is right up. So he interprets this dream. And he lays it out to this inmate and the inmates listening, listening carefully. And he's probably memorizing it because we know he's good at memorizing. But he's got good memory, we that's already been established. So he's telling me what it means Illa Padilla Moto, C known and he says, and seven years intense ones that will eat away everything that you have

00:43:37--> 00:43:41

prepared for them, except the very little that you're going to be able to preserve.

00:43:42--> 00:43:51

So you're gonna have very little savings left at the end of those seven years. If you implement this. Now, if you don't start saving extremely now and eating less, you're all going to starve.

00:43:52--> 00:44:36

Now, in the dream there were seven cows than seven cows than seven stocks than seven stocks. seven plus seven is how many 14 and user friendly Salaam just said seven good years followed by seven bad years that means the dream interpretation is done. Right. I told you what the first seven are going to be I told you what the next seven are going to be Listen to this. So my team embody galica Amalfi heartfulness after that, immediately there will be another year in which people are going to be rained on. Plenty of rain will come on to people. And it also means that there will be a year a half a means allows help for God's help to descend. Meaning there will be a year in which Allah has

00:44:36--> 00:44:59

helped will descend on to people will be here soon. And in that year, they are going to squeeze meaning they're going to squeeze milk out of the cows, they're going to squeeze wine out of the grapes, they're going to squeeze juice out of the fruits. They're going to squeeze oil out of the olives, they're gonna squeeze and squeeze and squeeze, meaning there's plenty to go around. And squeezing also suggests they're coming out of liquid right. And liquid can only come out when there's no drought.

00:45:00--> 00:45:39

Let's go back to farming language. Seven years with a rivers are running free. There's irrigation. That's why you can crop seven years with a rain stop, the rivers dry up, there's no water to go around. And then one year, one year that's going to come immediately after that's going to be so amazing that it's people are going to get rained on plenty and raised in Arabic means not, you know, sometimes it rains, but not enough. Right. So it doesn't really feed the earth as it should have been fed. Sometimes it rains too much it becomes a flood. But when the rain is perfect, that the earth swallows it, and gives you exactly what it should have produced, and it's in just the right

00:45:39--> 00:46:19

amount. That's called faith. And that's why we have the prayer call Salatu St. Lhasa from the same origin, the prayer of perfect rain, the rain, that's going to be just right. He says there's going to be a year after these 14 year number what now 15 that's going to be unusually amazing. It's going to be perfect rain that you know some even right, right now regular years, some good years, some bad years. It's a mix. Right? Now, the few things to note here, number one did the king even mentioned something in his dream that could tell you about a 15? year? No. So the information about the 15th Year is coming directly from a law.

00:46:20--> 00:46:28

And somebody might argue fine, if you say there's seven good years, followed by seven values, then obviously that means you're number 15 is going to be good.

00:46:29--> 00:47:05

But the thing with that is, when you have drought for seven years, even if things start turning around, Hey, man, it rained twice last year. That's how that's better. Next year, maybe it'll be a whole three times. Maybe in a few years, they'll get five or six, it's never going to go back to the way it used to be. Right? It's been seven years, we haven't seen a climate change like that. He says no, right after those seven years are done, it's going to be like heaven on earth. And you guys are going to be living it up, you're going to be squeezing and basically you're going to become lax. You don't have to worry about drink anymore. You don't have to worry about the limited resources of

00:47:05--> 00:47:26

liquid anymore. You know, whether it comes from fruits or animals or whatever else, there's plenty to drink, there's plenty to go around. And when he gave this 15th year, the thing is a lot of not just revealed to him the meaning of the dream, Allah revealed to him additional to what he was asked something that wasn't even asked.

00:47:27--> 00:47:29

Now, why is that significant?

00:47:30--> 00:47:48

You could say, first of all, this year is going to be unusually good. Maybe after that 15th year, you're 16 1718 and so on are going to be normal years, some good some bad mixture, right? But this is like an unusually good year. Isn't he asking for society to go on lockdown for seven years?

00:47:50--> 00:48:00

Isn't he asking for resources to be limited. Even though there's plenty of resources to go around, and the economy is good, we got to act like an emergency is on the way.

00:48:01--> 00:48:08

And we have to preserve for a coming emergency. How many years before the emergency comes?

00:48:09--> 00:48:17

Seven. And if this was an election year, and it was the first year, the politician would have said you want us to wait six years and hurt our economy.

00:48:18--> 00:48:22

And not and we can eat food because these people want to limit our freedom.

00:48:23--> 00:48:34

We can eat what kind of policies this seven years. We don't have the patience for seven years. We're dying over here. I want to eat twice the food I eat right now.

00:48:35--> 00:49:04

I In other words, he gave a policy that makes, you know, that expects public responsibility. The entire public the entire nation has to chip in and realize this is for the collective well being. In this also embedded is kind of a philosophy of government, the economic policies of government household. You see as an individual in Islam, I am not encouraged to save and save and save and save and save.

00:49:05--> 00:49:32

Like I'm going to save for seven years because they might be seven bad years. Because I'm not even criticizing a levy Jama Amala wadada the one who gathers money and keeps on counting it Yes. And Amala holida the one who thinks that his money is gonna make him live forever. As an individual when I have even ally encourages in some places kulula fo tell them what should they spend whatever extra you have, just keep giving, be charitable. Right? But that's for the individual.

00:49:33--> 00:49:58

For the society. You have to think about the worst times and not act when the economy is doing well. Don't start wasting government funds on projects that don't matter. Prepare for the National Emergency where people might end up starving, so you have enough money to go around where you don't have to fight tooth and nail to build people out so they can have food on the table.

00:50:00--> 00:50:27

Because you weren't prepared for such an emergency, because you had responsible economic policies, you saved properly, you understand? So he created that. And when the economy is good, nobody wants to be conservative. When you have a lot of money, like to give you the example of a kid, when my parents used to give me money for eat, I got like a 20 or 30 in my pocket, man, I'm looking at the candy store. I'm gonna get this, I'm gonna get this. I'm get that too. I never tried that one.

00:50:28--> 00:50:55

Usually, I get maybe one thing and be happy for a few days. But nagamani and what 30 bucks will disappear within the next 10 minutes. Because I'm not thinking like an adult. Am I? Right? Now the thing is, are we always thought when we were kids, our parents would always tell us, you can't get this toy. You can't buy that. You can't go there. Nobody can go there tonight. We can't go eat at this restaurant. No, no, no. I remember going to restaurants where we shared a burger.

00:50:56--> 00:51:33

A whole family? who couldn't you know, afford a more than a burger? Sometimes it happened. And I'm proud of those moments. You know why? Because the head of a household has to think about the entire budget for the month. Yes, I think about the electricity bill yesterday what the school tuition is I think about the backpacks. So they got the new socks. Yes, I think about the toothbrushes and the toothpaste, and the cereal. And the kids that said, but you didn't let me get the toy. Because a child is not responsible for anyone but themselves. When an entire society becomes a society of children, and the people running that government act like children too. And nobody's thinking about

00:51:33--> 00:51:38

the future that's coming. Nobody's thinking ahead, then there's a disaster on the way.

00:51:39--> 00:52:16

Yusuf Ali, Sam says times may be good, but prepare for the worst. But know that the worst of it. And the worst of it may be as bad as the good, seven good versus seven. Bad but don't be hopeless. Listen, at the end of this is all this can only come from Allah. Right now. We're in the middle of a crisis all over the world. There's an economic crisis. There's a political crisis. There's all kinds of crises around us. And you know, what, one of the things that we're asking, when is this going to be over? When is this going to be over? And we don't have the answer to that. But use of are they set up in the case of his economic, you know, news of seven years of a breakdown of society of the

00:52:16--> 00:52:24

entire economy collapsing, because Ancient Egypt and agricultural society is going to lose water. What are they going to have left if they don't have water?

00:52:25--> 00:53:05

And he says, But no, hold your breath for how long? Seven years. And after seven years, there's gonna be a day that's gonna feel like heaven. So wonder, year six, we can have a celebration, six more years to go. That's a big, you know, timer. five more years, not five more years. I can't wait. Because there's a deadline at the end, right? We don't have that advantage, do we? We can't say man, three more months. And once it's all over, we can't do that. And by the way, if you have a clear deadline, then it becomes easier to be patient with the time left. If you don't have a deadline, no one is this gonna end? You know what, it's never gonna end. So might as well just go crazy. Mazal

00:53:05--> 00:53:39

just act like it's not happening now. Act irresponsibly, irresponsibly. Now, you understand. So he gave this remarkably mature policy that laid out what the next 15 years are going to look like. So my team in Bali danika, how much have you gotten us here soon, as I leave you with this, this. And by the way, that again, the news of relief could only have come from Allah. So this statement, the way in which he is describing it, people are going to be replenished, let people know, there's hope. It's not all bad, but they need to get through it.

00:53:40--> 00:53:47

And those people include believers this believer whatever society because even his family is going to be starving By the way, his own family is going to be starving

00:53:48--> 00:53:58

when he gave this policy, and he told this, you know, this this Kabir he didn't say again, can you mention me now, please, can you at least mentioned me now?

00:54:00--> 00:54:22

Didn't say, You know why? Because when the copier, aka the bartender, goes back, and tells the king verbatim what he memorized. Because he's gonna do do that, right? We know that already. He's gonna do that. Why? Because he did that with the king. So when he word for word, repeats what Yusuf Ali said, um, said, The king is smart enough to know.

00:54:24--> 00:54:24

Where'd you get this?

00:54:26--> 00:54:30

And he's not gonna say I can't reveal my sources, sir. But I'll take the promotion.

00:54:31--> 00:54:34

He's gonna have to say someone I know who.

00:54:35--> 00:54:44

Who do you know, who is this person? I need to meet this person. Because the moment the king hears this interpretation, the king is going to feel like

00:54:46--> 00:54:56

I think that's I feel like that's right. The King could reject this interpretation candy. But by reading of this allowed them is that when the king hears this interpretation, even the king is gonna be like,

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

that's exactly what I think it is.

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

Where did you get this? Ah?

00:55:04--> 00:55:06

Wait, I asked you a question.

00:55:10--> 00:55:42

Who user who is in jail, he was falsely imprisoned. All of its gonna come out, isn't it as the guy thinks image prematurely, that he's gonna get a promotion, it's gonna backfire and use of La samknows the intelligence with which he presented it, the clarity with which he presented it with speak for itself, which is a powerful lesson, we're not even doing that next time, we're up to 49. But it's a powerful lesson by itself. You see, imitation is that they say imitation is the highest form of flattery.

00:55:43--> 00:55:59

If you're doing if you're excelling in something, if you're doing your very best in something, don't worry about somebody taking the credit for what you're doing, or copying you and getting away with it. Because when they're copying you, you they're only actually promoting you without realizing it.

00:56:00--> 00:56:01

Don't even know it.

00:56:02--> 00:56:11

They don't know it. All those invitations are simply there to actually validate what you're doing more, because if you weren't worth copying, they wouldn't be doing it.

00:56:12--> 00:56:24

And you know, what, if they try to do something of value, something genuine good for them, there's more reward for you. And if they're not able to, people will see right through it and say, that doesn't sound like it's originally yours. Where'd you get it from?

00:56:25--> 00:56:28

where they're coming from, I'll go to the source.

00:56:29--> 00:56:36

You could you can copy somebody, and maybe you're really good at copying. But you can only fake it so long. There's no fake it till you make it, you'll be fake until you break it.

00:56:37--> 00:56:51

That's that's what happens. And eventually it'll break. You can't pretend you can't take credit for other people's work. When you have you have to be Muslim. You have Allah. Quran says about people, some people, they love to be praised for something they haven't even done.

00:56:52--> 00:57:24

That which is the character that's been kind of described here. He wanted to be praised for something he didn't do, and user friendly. So I realized that I don't have to promote myself. I don't have to make my case anymore. I've lost that hope. Anyway, this guy can't be expected to do anything. And I'm too. He's too mature to ask that question again. Because he knows that's a bottomless pit. There's no point wasting my breath on that. One use of Elisa know something else too, that when you excel, your excellence will speak for you. Even if people don't speak for you.

00:57:25--> 00:58:00

If people forget you, if people dismiss you, you're alone will make your work speak for you alone will make your truth speak for you. And in this case, the gift Allah has given him the revelation Allah gave him will speak for him. That's actually what's going to rescue him. Not this guy, not the computer. It's actually the history and why did he tell the copier this dream, this is the last thing I'll share with you. It's subtle, but important to mention. He did not tell the computer the interpretation of the dream, because he knows that when he goes back and he tells the dream, it's going to be so impressive that he's going to get out of jail. He said this interpretation because

00:58:00--> 00:58:20

people are gonna die. And he can do something about it. So he didn't talk about his case. He didn't talk about being freed. He just said straight. He didn't say I will tell you what it means. But let me out of here first. Could he done that? Could he have done that? Absolutely. But he understands that Allah has put him in a position to do good for people,

00:58:21--> 00:58:56

to be from the mercy need to look out for the benefit of others, even if they're not looking to his benefit, because when he goes in front of a lot, if somebody was benefiting me or not, won't matter. But if I benefited somebody else, that will matter. That's going to be an acid in my record, in my record. So he'll rake in the records, and he'll help immediately. And he understands that this is an emergency, it's bigger than me, it's bigger than my case, all of us are going to starve. Nobody's going to have food left. So this needs to be taken care of right now. Go take back this, take this back to people, I would imagine you suffer a summons, even given a revolution that it is, in fact,

00:58:56--> 00:59:34

the king. The way he talked, he knew that he's giving government policies. I mean, the language is making it clear that he's he's not just talking to a farmer. He's talking to everybody. And the only way you can talk to everybody is you have one microphone, that speaks to everyone. And that must be the microphone of the king. There's no other way. Right. So he issues this. He lays it out. So you know, I've talked to you about a few things today. But, you know, there are different kinds of governments in the world today different kinds of economies. But particularly in the case of ancient Egypt, it's clear that the farmland was under the control of the government under the king.

00:59:36--> 01:00:00

Right? Because he decides what to crop what to be, etc. Right? So it's basically this this monarchy in which the land is owned by the king, and the people work on the land, but they don't own the land. It seems that way. Right. And if that is the case, then what we're referring to as an analogy is governmental resources. Those are governmental resources. And the government has to be extremely careful in where it's spent.

01:00:00--> 01:00:00

resources.

01:00:02--> 01:00:31

Otherwise it brings about disaster onto people. Even if it's not a disaster today, it might be a disaster. 10 years from now, 20 years from now, it's incredible that without revelation, there can be projections about upcoming virus that may become a pandemic. And we might need the kind of medical resources that can handle large populations. And studies were done on this stuff, reports were presented about this stuff to state governments, to federal governments around the world, including the United States, and no action was taken on it.

01:00:33--> 01:00:37

No action was taken. And yet, budgets for weapons of mass destruction keep increasing.

01:00:38--> 01:01:21

Right? This is how governments spend money. And this is Yusuf Ali salaams, inside chronic insight on what a government should be doing, even in good times when there is no crisis in sight. Because you should foresee a crisis coming for the benefit of the people to secure the people. That's the job of a government. That's the job of a government. So he sitting in a jail cell, he gave us this most incredible timeless policy measure that can be a savior to nations around the world, not just in ancient Egypt, just in these few words. So without a shadow of a doubt, I leave you with some with some of your own reflections on these few IOP. And tomorrow Bismillah. We're going to start talking

01:01:21--> 01:01:56

about his return out of prison barakallahu li walakum. Khurana Hakeem when a final year can be it can actually I changed my mind. Tomorrow, I won't talk about his return from prison. Tomorrow, I'm going to talk to you about the fact that we're at the halfway point. And I might have a shorter session tomorrow and talk to you about some outstanding reflections on sort of use of up until now. There's some things that I observed that I didn't mention in my series that I want to bring up to you up into because we're reached basically the halfway point. And this halfway point, not in the number of hours, but in the progression of the story. Yeah. So everything that happens now is

01:01:56--> 01:02:11

basically unraveling all the tension that was built up until now. So there's tension tension, tension, tension, tension, and then there's the release, release, release, release, release. That's what's gonna happen in the rest of this war. barakallahu li walakum wa salaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

01:02:12--> 01:02:12

Okay, bye
