Nakata Mila Sania Coco Lee Alhamdulillah wa Salatu, salam, ala alihi wa sahbihi Ah, Marin, I'm about once again, everybody, Somali. Hello, Ricardo, we are moving on to the next scene in the story of Yusuf Ali Salaam, today, what I hope to cover is is number 50 to 53. So that's again, quite a bit of quite a number of I art and maybe we'll cover all of them, maybe we won't, but that's at least what I think can be packed together and talked about coherently at once, as an introduction to today's discussion. Not only do I want to tell you where we are up until now, but I also want to tell you that sometimes, especially when it comes to this particular story and the language of this story,

00:01:51--> 00:02:30

there's lots of debate on some things like what exactly happened, right? So the Koran is going to speak in brief terms and mofa zero and are trying to fill in the gaps of what's going on, and how to connect the dots together. Because the Quran will not connect all the dots that will give you one major dot the next major dot, and there's lots of dots in between. Right, so there are different pathways to connect one to the other one scene to the next. And what happens in between what hasn't been spelled out literally by the Quran. That's where you find differences. When you also find differences in his some statements that are made in this story, like, the question becomes who's

00:02:30--> 00:03:08

talking here? Right? So is it? What's going to happen today? For example, is it use of it? So I'm talking? Or is it the wife of the minister talking, that's actually a debate on some part of the story, right. So as a disclaimer, To start off with, I will, you know, openly say that I have my leanings, meaning I'm convinced of one position far more than the other. In some cases, I'm kind of like 5050. But these are, in some of these cases, after looking at whatever evidence I can, and not to take away from the other position. But really, one seems far more plausible, far more, you know, bind bound together, at least from my point of view. So I'm going to be sharing my point of view.

00:03:08--> 00:03:43

And I don't claim that my point of view is the right one. But I do claim that it's the one that I've I personally find most convincing. And so though I would spend, usually, I would spend a lot of time discussing the opposing points of view, I'll highlight them, but I won't go through their reasons as much. I'll go through the reasons for for the point of view that I do find more compelling, and therefore spend more time, you know, building the story, as I understand it best, you know, after whatever discussions and study I've been able to do. So that's what I'm going to, you know, focus my attention on. So now the other thing about the introduction to today's lecture is where are we?

00:03:44--> 00:04:21

Yusuf Ali Salam has interpreted the dream. He's told the guy that the copier what it means, and he's also added an additional year of policy instruction. And he said this with great confidence, and basically has said nothing else. There's no further comment on Go tell the king about me. Remember, the last time you forgot this time, you better say something, he says no such thing, because he now knows that his knowledge, and the way in which he has spoken, is going to speak for itself. The king will know that these are not the cup bears words. Where did you get them from? There's going to be a curiosity, so he doesn't have to deal with it. And he did his part and you really treating this not

00:04:21--> 00:04:58

as an opportunity for him to get out. But for the right thing to get out. Because he's concerned with public safety. He's concerned with people not starving, right? That's his primary concern. And that speech becomes very clear in the way that he spoke. Now. We'll call it mallet. So the story fast forwards from number 49 to number 50. So I'm going to first try to tell you what happened in between that is not said. So here. We were at the jail, the copier was talking to us if I saw your surgeon was telling them what the dream means. What happens next? Obviously, what happens next is the computer runs back to the king and says I know what it means. And all the ministers are like

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

what what are you talking about and then he's like,

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

Literally spells out with his good memorization skills. The dream as it was interpreted by a user from a salon, and everybody's in awe. And even if they're not convinced it's it becomes very clear that the king hears it and says, that spot on that's exactly what it means. Hook where'd you get this from? And now he can't lie because he can't perjure himself in front of the king. And he's gonna get caught. So he has to now say that I got this from use of police around so he's now the forget about the promotion that that part of the story is gone. The King basically told the cover you the only thing that I need now is it Tony B. Bring him to me. Bring him to me who's him? Yusuf

00:05:41--> 00:06:11

Ali Salam. So whoever gave you this answer, you need to bring him to me, sir. He's I don't care. Bring him to me. I want him here. Okay. Now, this the first thing we need an EIN number 15. We'll call him Maluku. Tony be the king said, Bring him to me. Bring him to me. Now. You can read commands in language two ways. You can read them as many ways, actually. But two interesting ways you can read them as actual instruction. Or you can read them as

00:06:12--> 00:06:49

a request. Right? Generally, you would think a king would make a given instruction. When again, King tells you bring him obviously the guard goes out, the soldiers go out, or whatever people that carry the policy go out and they do what the king told them to do. Right? It's an executive order, if you will, right. So you would think that when the king says, Bring him to me, it would be a command. That's what you would imagine. But as the story proceeds, it kind of becomes clear that it's not the way that that reading makes too much sense. Why not? Because you see if you serve Halley's lambs in jail, and what doesn't matter where he is even even if he was at home, and the kings have bring him

00:06:49--> 00:06:52

would use of Elisa Lam have the right to say Nah, I ain't coming.

00:06:53--> 00:07:35

I'm not coming. What do you have that right? No, because if you're being called by the government, obviously the authorities came for you. You don't say I'm not coming until you got here, my conditions, you're not in a place to make conditions. Because you are being summoned by the government, you better show up. But what seems to be the case, I'm fast forwarding, even though we'll analyze that a little later, is in fact, the messenger came to the prison to tell you so the king wants you. And he refused to come out. Now, the thing is, if this was in fact, a command, he is in no position to refuse, and he can even refuse, they'll still drag him out there anyway, isn't it?

00:07:35--> 00:08:19

Because he's quite literally in prison, meaning he's not living of his own free will. At this point. He's under governmental authority oppressively or not. But the fact that he was able to turn that request down and say no, I have some conditions first, what does that mean, about the way we think about what the king says? It seems the king instead of granting an order, issuing an order is actually making making a request whoever This is, I'd like to invite him, please bring him to me. In other words, there's, without ever having met use of the king is already showing a kind of respect. for use of Elisa, this is not like you're being summoned, you're actually being invited. And there's

00:08:19--> 00:09:02

a difference between those two, isn't it? Now the thing is, when someone is being released from jail, when someone's being released from jail, then maybe somebody bails them out, or their term is finished. Or they say you got an early release. But the people who come to them, they don't talk to them with respect. They say grab your stuff, and they kick you out of there. But the way that this plays out, listen to this. So he's the king says, Bring him to me. Final majha, hoorah sold, and finally, when the messenger came to him, so now, we're not being described as the one who was saved. We're not being this guy's not being described as the cub bearer. He's being described as the

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

messenger. Yeah. When the messenger came to me What message the king would like to meet with you? And he, and if he comes with this royal decree, or some official papers, government papers, right, that there's a special invitation and the you know, the warden of the prison might be like, special invitation. What did I do? No, it's not for you. It's one of the inmates, he got a special invitation from the king.

00:09:25--> 00:10:00

Not another an order, but an invitation. Yeah. So when he comes, you don't expect someone in prison to be receiving an honor to meet with the President or the honor to meet with the king and to be invited, no less not ordered. The only thing inmates are used to receiving are what orders but he's actually receiving an invitation. This goes back to something remarkable in the life of use of Harley Sam, he can be placed in the most humiliating situations. He carries himself with dignity, and somehow dignity gets showered upon him anyway. Somehow respectful

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

comes his way from unusual, unusual places. We saw when he was in the well and turned into a child slave, which has was treated like a barn animal. And all of a sudden, when the when the minister picks him up by the time he brings him home, he tells his wife, academia, Martha, who honor his residents, show him respect, isn't it? And now a king who's never met him, just heard about this dream, and the urgency with which it was stated, what is the king processing, not just that this man is incredibly insightful? Or he has a high form of knowledge? But he said anything else? Did he say anything about being released? Or did he say anything about his cage? No, sir. This is all he said.

00:10:40--> 00:11:19

And he said, It's urgent. He said, You have to get to work immediately. So this man is concerned about everyone else and not even concerned about who, himself it's like these, these impressions make you honor someone give you respect for someone that's truly what you call a public servant. Right? public servants put the the needs of the public before themselves. That's what they do. And that's what clearly Yusuf Ali Salaam has done here. So because of that, he calls him and then the messenger comes out, checks to him and I had a little bit of a conversation about the messenger because most obvious interpretation is that the Kabir himself is the messenger he came back and

00:11:19--> 00:11:54

said, it keeps calling you and I said possibly, but it may also be that now that we found out who it is send the official messenger you know, usually there's like an ambassador or a delegation or the you know, back in the old days, because you guys don't watch movies, you're so Islamic and stuff. That's why you're on Facebook. So you know, you you have like old kings that send their messenger, he gets off the horse and he opens up the scroll and says, Here, you hear you, or whatever, right the official messenger and when you see him coming, even the entire village knows and official order from the king is coming, or an official announcement from the king is coming. And such individuals

00:11:54--> 00:12:32

were actually classically called messengers. So it could be Yeah, that the Kabir got a new job. Now he's the relay guy, he's the messenger service. Or it could also be that in honoring Yusuf Alayhi Salam that he actually sent the official messenger that usually goes to issue official invitations, because the way in which you invite someone from royalty also has a royal flavor to it, doesn't it? You don't just send anybody you send like a when you get a royal invitation or an official invitation, this special kind of envelope, it's still delivered in a special way. It's it's given to you in a in a special way, etc. It's not a text message yo come to the White House or something.

00:12:32--> 00:13:11

It's not like that it's an official letter, or it's some kind of formality. So because this is an invitation my personal inclination, Allah knows best we'll find out on Judgement Day is that the messenger he may not actually be the copier, or even if it is along with him is the official messenger of the king, which is a really awesome scene. You've got a prison inmate who's got a special entourage that usually comes to meet Governor's it usually comes to meet dignitaries or foreign kings and princes is now coming to meet Yusuf Ali Salaam in prison inviting the king hereby requests your presence in the court and so use every Salaam is there you know and but but by the way

00:13:11--> 00:13:35

from his response It seems that it is the Kabir still or the company is at least in presence. So how do we know because now we're gonna get into the use of honey salaams response when he said the King we don't have the words the king request your presence that's obviously understood in the king said Bring him to me. When the messenger finally came, he said meaning use of honey syrup said Carla, if Jerry Arabic, go back to your master,

00:13:36--> 00:14:21

the king hereby requests your presence. Go back. Go back to your camera. Go back to your master first. And when you go back, then ask him my balloonist what a lotta Katana idea hoonah. What is what was the state? What was the condition of the women who cut their hands? What was the condition of the woman? What state were they in? Those women that cut their hands in Nairobi became the hidden alley, my master without a doubt, is fully aware of their scheme. My master is fully aware of their scheme. Now this is this is where there's quite a bit of debate. When you first of all, go back to your king, meaning go back to the he rejected the invitation. Yes. If this wasn't ordered, is he in

00:14:21--> 00:14:30

a position to reject the invitation? No. That's why I say this is this sounds more like a request than an order Fine. Then he says Go back to your king and ask him a question.

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

asked him what question marbling this one now by all means state condition. There's two ways to read this. The less obvious way which I'm less inclined towards also is what was their state when they were all acting crazy when they cut their hands. So what happened to those women that cut their hands so many years ago? Does anybody know what kind of state what kind of crazy behavior they had at that time? Meaning what was their state? Almost as if Makana balonus wha

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

What was their state? Those who kept their hands? But actually this is in the present tense. This is a generalized me balance the move to the here, my balloon as well, what is the condition? Now? What was the condition? What is the situation of the women who back then cut their hands? Now, why is that important? Use of Elisa is being given the opportunity to get out of jail without a trial, yes, being given the opportunity to so there's a few things we have to think about here. Use of asylums intelligence is very advanced. And there's a lot of considerations that we can analyze, that came in that one statement, it kind of illustrates the profound depth of the thought process of use of our

00:15:44--> 00:16:23

data. So I'm going to try to highlight that stuff to you. First and foremost, these women were scheming enough to get me in jail without proper trial, and to falsely accuse me of something I didn't do. Right, because them and the people working behind them, came together and got me jailed. And I clearly represented a threat to their reputation. If I come out now, and they find out and they will find out because the king himself is ordering me, it's not like I'm going to go back to some obscure farm, I'm going to come in front of the king. So all the government officials are going to know that I'm out. All those women that tried to cover up that scandal, are going to know that

00:16:23--> 00:17:04

I'm back out, which means they're going to start scheming all over again, some way of getting me out of this position. Because if I am it so long as I exist in front of them, I'm a threat to their reputation. I'm not looking for a new episode of drama. So before I come out, I actually told my ROM Allah, that I'm safer in jail from these women, isn't it? And now when I'm coming out of prison, usually you should be happy when you come out of prison. But you know, you have to remember what he asked Allah, you know, are besieged muhabura Yami Maya Odin, La ilaha 70 k de Haan, lotuslive, honey K. Davina, if you don't take your scheme away from me, if you don't take this scheme away from me,

00:17:04--> 00:17:37

right, so that was one kind of scheme. But all these years later, there may be another kind of scheme. There may be some other game they try to play to get him in trouble again. And he Why is this important? It's not important, because oh my god, if they do this, I'll end up in jail again. And this time, it'll be even worse, don't even try to kill me to silence me forever. Because they'll say Jalen didn't work for this guy, we have to take the next step. It may be all of those things. But go back to the original thought process, Yusuf Alayhi Salaam is concerned with the well being of all of Egypt, and he knows he's the only one who can save this country from the crisis that's coming

00:17:37--> 00:18:11

its way, Allah has revealed that much to him, therefore, him and if he does come out, and he can foresee that he's going to be in a policymaking position. And if he is going to be and he's actually, not only can you foresee it, the moment he comes out, and he's in front of the king, I'm getting ahead of myself for tomorrow, he's actually going to nominate himself. He's gonna say, put me in charge of the Treasury. He's gonna say that himself. So he knows already, where he's headed. A governmental political office. Yes. Now the thing is, when you're in political office, and you're going to deal with an economic crisis,

00:18:13--> 00:18:58

when you're in political office, and you're going to deal with what an economic crisis, then you are the least favorable, least popular politician, because the economic crisis is blamed on you. And if the economy is good, but you're asking people to not act as if it's a party, act as if you're starving? Isn't that what he's saying? It's not a popular policy to execute anywhere. No. So what happens when you have a politician who's trying to implement the right policy, but there are others who want him taken down, not only will they criticize his policy, if they can find a way to criticize a politician's policy, then they will try to find a way to destabilize that politician to

00:18:58--> 00:19:25

dismantle that politician by way of his public life, or a scandal or some other scheme. Right. What happens during elections? There are candidates, a candidate says these are the policies I'd like to enforce or implement or fight for when I when I gain office. Right. But in the election campaign, the campaign isn't about these are my policies, these are your policies. The election campaign 90% of the time is the scandal involving this one and the scandal involving that one, isn't it?

00:19:26--> 00:20:00

So scandals and schemes to fight to dig dirt on somebody or to make accusations against somebody is a way for all of their policies, all of the good that they were going to do, can run down the drain. In fact, when you create accusations, if they're true or not, if they're 90%, true, 10% false 10% true. 90% false truth Mills when mixed with false, none of that matters because once it circulates, and once it becomes viral, everybody creates their own facts. Everybody, everybody has a story in their mind already. And you can't undo that with

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

Facts anymore. Because that's how political spin works. He knows that if that kind of political spin happens against him, the policies that he needs to implement to save Egypt, are going to sink before they, before they even have a chance to swim. He's going to be kicked out of office, because his reputation is going to be marred by these women. If they were able to cover something up before, are they not capable of coming up with diabolical lies again, if the wife of the minister was able to say he was the one who intended evil with me, isn't she able to do way worse now? He should be he should be mindful of the fact that the role he's going to play has certain obstacles in front of

00:20:39--> 00:21:14

him. And this is where you understand use of Elisa Lam street smarts, his political savvy, you understand that he doesn't just want to get out of jail. He wants to be free from the kind of toxicity that will keep him from meeting his purpose. And he's aware of it. He doesn't just say Allah will take care of me, I'm coming out. No, no, no, no, no, he understand something, you need to go talk to the king about what's going on with those women. Because if those women are still in positions of influence, and running around and doing whatever, then I'm gonna just be on thin ice constantly. And there's no point of me getting out. Because the purpose of me getting out is

00:21:14--> 00:21:52

actually me doing some good, I have a higher purpose than just not being in a steel cell. That's my goal. So that's one part of this problem. The second is by seeing what happened to the women who cut their hands. That creates a fun create, you know, curiosity, doesn't it? The King might even ask, cut their hands. I heard something about that some years ago. Now, why would I? I'm personally assuming this, okay, this is remember the dots that are not filled in? I'm filling those in because you don't say something as obscure as those women what happened to those women who kept their hands? What it seems the way I would like to fill these dots, and different scholars have filled these dots

00:21:52--> 00:22:30

in different ways. The way that I think this becomes a coherent narrative, is that those women just like useless. You know, the Masters wife accused him falsely and was proven wrong. Now they're all in on it together. And they've all cut their hands. And if use of one little scandal got out, and the entire city was talking, remember, it happened behind closed doors, but the entire city was talking? Do you not think that when that entire party scene happened, and a bunch of ladies cut their hands, and all this talk happened, that it didn't get out? One of these women didn't get out and say, you know, don't tell anyone, you're my best friend. That's why I'm telling you. You know

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

what happened today? We saw yourself.

00:22:33--> 00:22:39

And he was, oh, my goodness, and we cut our hands. And this happened. That's the whole story. Don't tell anyone see whole lie.

00:22:40--> 00:23:17

Next thing, you know, all of Egypt's talking about ladies who cut their hands and all kinds of stories are circulating, it's a bigger problem, you understand, it's become a bit if it was a crisis for one woman, it's our crisis for a bunch of women, which is why it only made sense to get use of honey Salaam, thrown in jail, you understand, so big, and because it's circulated in higher elite families, and these are political families and millionaire families, the king must have heard about this crazy story back in the day. And now what what hasn't been stated, but maybe implied, and I'll, as it comes, I refer back to it. What may be implied is that these women came out with an accusation

00:23:17--> 00:23:52

against use of a Salaam similar to the one that the lady of the house failed to make. In other words, we he tried to do something with us, he was being inappropriate with us, or he was out of line or something like that, and he should get thrown in jail. So some kind of in some kind of way, those women who Qatar has not only covered up the truth, but actually said something bad about him, that may be an implication, along with on on him. But anyway, so he says, What came what what's the state of the women who cut their hands, and then he adds, when it not be bkv, hidden I leave

00:23:53--> 00:24:33

my master no doubt is fully knowledgeable of their scheme. Now what this could mean three things. It could mean number one, Allah knew their scheme when this scheme did. Allah knew what they were planning and the cover up that they did Allah knew all along. But the question is, even if it means that what is the point of him saying that right now? Why could you summarize on believes that? But why is he saying it at the time, when the messenger is gonna go back and deliver that to the king? Right? This may, if this is the interpretation that my master knows what their schemes were, then this Be it sounds more like venting, right, that he says Allah knows what they did. And maybe what

00:24:33--> 00:25:00

it could imply is we not you guys may be able to cover the truth, they may be able to cover up make way more lies than they did even in the past. They when you even bring them to trial, they might deny all of it, that it never happened. Right? They could they could do all of that again, and they're capable of it. They have the resources. They can pay people off to make false testimonies, can't they? They can do all of it. They can make a fake trial if they want to, he says and it doesn't matter what people say. I know when

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

iraq knows what they did.

00:25:02--> 00:25:38

So whether human beings try to cover up the truth or not, I'm going to take comfort in knowing that Allah knows the truth. Sometimes what happens in the world is that people have a piece of the truth and a lot of lies together. Right? And they pass judgment based on that. And no matter what you do, you can't get the truth to where it was, you can't bring it out. And if that's the case, and people are able to suppress the truth, you must find comfort in one thing, my master still knows what happened. Allah still knows what actually transpired. So that's the one the first meeting, the second in Nairobi, bkd, Kadena ademas. And my master is pretty knowledgeable of the kind of scheming

00:25:38--> 00:25:39

they can still do.

00:25:40--> 00:25:45

It's as if I'll put it in, you know, modern English for you. God knows what they're capable of.

00:25:46--> 00:26:00

Can you find out what they're up to? Because God knows what they're capable of my master knows the kinds of scheming they're capable of. In other words, I'm taking my precautions. I'm not getting out of here until I can feel safe. Can you imagine somebody says, I ain't getting out of jail until I feel safe.

00:26:01--> 00:26:17

Right? Because God knows the enemies I have. So he please find out what's going on with them first. What they're seeing still, are they still, you know, after me, have they moved on? I need to know. Then the third meaning, because the word Rob carried a duality.

00:26:18--> 00:26:42

What's the duality, use of a Salaam had a master, a human Master? Right? He was a slave. And the Arabic word for master in the surah is all sewed up. Because the king, the computers, Masters also called Rob, right? So he could, but he's talking about Allah. But he knows that the person talking to him may not be a believer in Allah.

00:26:43--> 00:26:51

But they do believe in human masters, right? So he may even be saying, Go tell the king, that my master, the one I used to work for knows all about this scheme.

00:26:52--> 00:27:27

So when you go back, let him know what happened to those women. And if you'd like to find out what happened was women, the first person you should start with is the man who used to I used to work for because he definitely knows what kind of scheme these women did. He knows all about it, because he's the one who put me here. He's the one who decided to let me write here and cover up this fact. useful advice on how to remember that guy. In other words, now he's It's time for him to get some justice, and for the truth to come out, and he's not looking for vengeance. But he knows that until this is brought to justice brought what brought to light, he can't do the good that he needs to do

00:27:27--> 00:27:30

you understand the this pathway is blocked now.

00:27:32--> 00:27:58

So the amendment as he points, these three things out, number one, he can come out until his name is cleared, that I explained to you. The second is the fact that he asked for a trial basically, isn't he asking for a trial? What's the state of those women that cut their hands by master knows what scheme they did? I want to get that scheme reinvestigate. I want that case reopened, right? That's what I want a berry case. The thing is, when somebody is getting out of jail, the last thing they want is a trial.

00:28:00--> 00:28:09

Right? Cuz they're like, Oh, my God, I gotta jail and there wasn't even a trial. There wasn't even a second hearing. I got out, he says, No, I'm not getting out until I get to trial.

00:28:10--> 00:28:49

Isn't that wild? Typically, you'd have a prisoner, the happiest thing would be? No, there's no trial, you can go. He says, No, I don't want to go. Not just that you can go the king invites, you know, I want to trial. Give me a trial with those women and my master. I'd like to have a trial. The only way someone can speak like that is when they know for a fact that they are what innocent, and there is no way that they have doesn't matter what schemes they do. The what what gives them backbone is the fact that they have the truth. Yusuf Ali, Hassan doesn't have an expensive lawyer, he doesn't have money. He doesn't have political power. He doesn't have people behind him. He

00:28:49--> 00:29:03

doesn't have his family backing him. There's nobody. And on the other side, there are powerful politicians. There's women that talk a lot. There are people with lots of money, and they're all of them are working together. And he says, No, I still want to trial because I have the truth.

00:29:04--> 00:29:05

I still want it.

00:29:07--> 00:29:28

And this is a bold statement of it speaks volumes for how innocent he is. How clearly innocent he is. So in essence, before he even coming out of jail, he's proven his innocence. There was no human being inside that jail. And that prison, that dungeon that would be offered to be released. I wouldn't take it right away. Isn't it the case?

00:29:30--> 00:29:38

And here you have yourself, I'm just turning it down. It's a remarkable thing that he just did. He turned down being released from jail. And then what you know,

00:29:40--> 00:29:59

he doesn't just want to do so, you know, as he says, Why would he do so to go after liars? Meaning he what he's done on the offensive to he wants to get rid of that kind of element from society. I would say an undercurrent meaning of that is those kinds of people if they are in a position of responsibility,

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

If they can lie about their personal lives, and they can do wrong to one citizen, then they can do wrong to a million citizens. If a politician, and people in positions of influence can do injustice to one, you know, one person who can defend themselves, while the only reason they should be in positions of power is that they are supposed to be the protectors and the caretakers of the weak. That's why they are given power by the people. That's why Allah gives them power, you understand? So he understands that for the well being of that society, these people do need to go to trial. Okay? Like if I, if you can't be trusted in your personal life, then you can't be trusted with public

00:30:39--> 00:31:11

office. And if you this is the kind of thing we do with people that work under you, then how are you going to deal with the larger population? What are you going to think of them? This is a person you knew, this is a person that served you, and you could do this to him? What about the 1000s of people that don't even know you? How would you treat them? If you could turn him into a commodity there nothing, you know, you could just slaughter them and, you know, do away with them, and not think about anything as you make your policies and fill your pockets. Right. So he's actually making this call this plea for a much larger purpose to now.

00:31:12--> 00:31:53

So he says, find out about those women. And my master knows about their scheme, meaning Allah knows about their scheme and the duality intended that the messenger might understand that the minister knows what happened. So when the king By the way, the king is personally invested in use of now Why? Because the king saw a dream that everybody dismissed. And it was interpreted by some man he's never met, use of and interpreted in a way that really hit him. So he's gonna be really invested in wanting to solve this or get, you know, get to know more about use of because he's, his own dream is at stake. His own anxiety is at stake. So what is the kingdom? Again, we have a lot of missing dots,

00:31:53--> 00:32:19

a lot of missing pieces. What happens in the 51st is Karla mahatva gonna listen to this case? I'll translate it first. Then we'll discuss it. Allah Hakuna izawa una usofa NFC he he said, what were what was your situation? What in the world were you up to? What was going on with you? When you all women, plural. That's the women conjugation when you women try to seduce use of

00:32:21--> 00:32:30

what was going on with all of you. The king in the next I had the king said to a bunch of women. What was wrong with you? When you were trying to seduce user?

00:32:31--> 00:33:02

Wait, there's a lot that happened in between here. Last thing Renu use of didn't say somebody tried to seduce me What do you say what is going on with the women that cut their hands? That's all he said. messenger comes back king. He said that he told me to come back to you and say the following my balloon is fertility Katana idea in Arabic at night. That's all he said. He said what happened to those women that cut their hands? My master knows about them and their scheme. There was a scheme he said there was a scheme

00:33:04--> 00:33:12

does the king already trust yourself? Yeah, because he interpreted the dream in a way that that resounds with him that you know he resonates with him.

00:33:13--> 00:33:17

So now the king says so there was a scheme I'd like to meet the minister.

00:33:18--> 00:33:21

Minister Do you know anything about this cutting hands business?

00:33:22--> 00:33:24

I need you to be straightforward with me.

00:33:25--> 00:33:50

The Minister of I try to wiggle a little bit or So who are these women are cut their hands? Do you know any of you know is there any? Sir My wife has her hand cut my job. She's got a tattoo also all these ministers and their wives. So what's the next thing he's doing? The King basically who's supposed to be back in the day the king is the law. Right? The king is the law. The king is also the judge

00:33:51--> 00:33:55

the king is also the jury but right now the king is also the investigator

00:33:56--> 00:34:34

right because the the case was not taken to the cops. The case was not taken to an investigator The case was taken from use of straight to the king and the king is personally interested now. So he calls everybody and starts questioning and finding out what is this story What's going on? No, no that doesn't at all. No it was use of he was crazy. No, I know he wasn't crazy. I need to know better. Try again. And he's not buying it until somebody spills their beans. One of them spills their beans because you know how they when they investigate is separate people and they break them. Or your friend already confessed. So might as well Oh yeah. Well, I get lesser sentence. And then

00:34:34--> 00:34:59

they break because I don't watch TV. Okay, stuff. But anyway. So now it's all come out. The whole thing is out to the point where the king now knows the full story and use of Elisa Lam hasn't even come out of jail yet. But the king knows that these women did this diabolical scheme to put this man in jail. So what does he do? He calls all the women to the Kings court.

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

He says what's going on with you? When you seduced yourself? When you try to seduce yourself? This is not him asking, did you seduce yourself?

00:35:09--> 00:35:22

That that part of the story seems to have already been dealt with? The investigation is over. This is the scolding. You know how usually sometimes when a judge passes a verdict before he sends the guy to jail, he gives them a little lecture.

00:35:23--> 00:35:50

This is what this is. The judges like what was going on? What were you thinking? You know, and then as he's talking to them, when, as it came, he was talking to one of these harsh alila they all said, God forbid, harsh Allah. Oh my god. Now these words are pretty ironic because if you remember, when you suffer the sun came out to them. They said, Oh my goodness, rather than Oh God.

00:35:51--> 00:36:03

Oh, God forbid he's such an angel. He saw righteous Look at me so uncomfortable around us. They said that sarcastically remember exact words harshly Nah, but now they actually mean it. God forbid.

00:36:04--> 00:36:13

Oh, my God, how shall the law and the standard say ma Allah, Allah even Sue? The woman said, we don't know of anything wrong that he did.

00:36:14--> 00:36:15

He did nothing wrong.

00:36:16--> 00:36:24

You know what an IRA. He is macadam, which suggests something. He's not the one who did something wrong. We don't know of him doing anything wrong.

00:36:25--> 00:36:26

What are they trying to say?

00:36:28--> 00:37:09

[???]. Because you know why? If you remember back at that party, when the whole thing went down, what did she say? I did try to seduce him. And he protected himself. And if he doesn't listen to what I say, he's gonna get thrown in jail. Or he's, and he's gonna be humiliated. Isn't that she? Didn't she confess that he's not doing wrong? I am. Didn't she proudly confess this, and who are the witnesses to her confession? These women, weren't they. So these women all basically, then they're still scared to say she did it. They're not going to say that. Maybe out of respect for her or maybe even out of fear for I would think the way she is presented in a currency is pretty scary. right up

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

until now, at least. So what they do is instead of, you know, pointing the finger at her, they say, um, he didn't do anything wrong. And the reason I would argue they defended use of this time, and say he didn't do anything wrong, is they can sense that the king is already convinced. And he's already passed his judgement about what really happened, and there's no point lying to him anymore. And actually, if they say something against use of, they're gonna get in more trouble.

00:37:37--> 00:37:59

Because of the way the king even posed the question. You don't ask a question like that until unless you feel for use of and against them. You understand that? What were you thinking when you tried to introduce yourself? Doesn't that sound like the king is on use of side? And if the king clear if he's the king, and he's on use of side, you better not try to say, Well, you know, what you don't know about use of his? Or you're still at it.

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

You don't want to mess with the king in that state, you understand? So they actually break and they no longer lie. And they say he didn't do it. No, God forbid, no, no, no, he didn't do anything wrong. He we don't know of anything wrong that he did. Allah Tim rotten Aziz, the wife of the minister was there to

00:38:17--> 00:38:19

the wife of the minister spoke up

00:38:20--> 00:38:21

on a house hustle.

00:38:22--> 00:39:08

Now the truth has finally come to bear. The truth is bare and exposed now has hacer has has outcomes in Arabic for something that gets settled and won't budge now, you know, before we used to be used to be able to make a different kind of truth than a different kind of truth and a different kind of truth and bend the truth to our will. But now the truth has been settled. Has has they say has has a very rocky rocky maharajji coats the camel when it bends its knees and sinks into the ground and will budge that hustle hustle barrier. Okay. Hustle also is used for someone who wears hats like, like rough material hats, or metallic hats or helmets and things like that. And it scrapes his scalp

00:39:08--> 00:39:33

until he goes bald and his skin comes out and the hair is gone. So it's come out what's underneath has come out. Right? So that's the kind of the way in which the word Hassan is used. So she says the truth has come out all beer. It's been exposed. Every lie that we tried to put on top of it has been shaved off. It's all gone now. And then she says another with the one FC. I tried to seduce him. I was the one who tried to seduce him. She comes out and says it.

00:39:34--> 00:39:46

Now this is an interesting turn of events. The last time she said these words. She said them proudly. Do you recall I did try to Susan. I don't know what the one

00:39:47--> 00:39:52

she's saying exactly the same words again. But this time she's saying them with shame.

00:39:53--> 00:40:00

I would like to paint a certain kind of picture of her. That is different from the

00:40:00--> 00:40:17

I have a picture I painted before. Based on my reading of the IOD what I see a lot of didalam what I see is a person that has gone through change over the years. The thing is, at first, she tried to get him thrown in jail for her personal pride, do you recall?

00:40:18--> 00:40:34

But then the IOD suggested that the politicians realize that this is a much bigger problem than her pride. This is going to create a scandal that has many political ramifications for all of us. So it's better to get him thrown in jail. Even if later on she has a change of heart.

00:40:35--> 00:41:06

Even if she has a change of heart, eventually her conscious wakes up let's just say what have I done? It eats away at her, you know, no human being is, you know, fundamentally purely evil. Even if they do very, very evil things. There is a goodness Allah put inside every human being even the Pharaoh and Allah said about him, Go give him a reminder. Maybe he'll take some good from it. Now I know he had the Caronia, right. So a person has goodness in them, there's a conscience inside you that will poke at you. The problem, the way I read this is,

00:41:07--> 00:41:50

even if she realized she did something wrong. The matter is now out of her hands. Because it's now a political issue, not her personal pride issue. Because there are too many people involved. So she can no longer say something to get him released. Because now her hands are tied. Because the people who threw her in jail were not her full medalla home in the model Oh, and I at last June now who had the hang the plural is used in that IRA, after they observe the signs, they decided that they will put him in prison until sometime. And the V is the masculine plural, which can be used for a conglomerate of men and women. Which means now this is a much bigger scheme than just one woman you

00:41:50--> 00:42:15

understand. So even if one of those people says I'm not okay with this plan anymore, well, it's not up to you anymore, is it? That train has left the station that ship has sailed. So my reading of it is actually it did catch up with her. It she did realize the evil of what she had done. But she couldn't say anything about it. There was no opportunity for her to say it. But now that the finger has finally been pointed at her,

00:42:16--> 00:42:55

and the case is out, and all the people that were holding her possibly back from saying the truth, no longer have that motivation. Because they're all they've all been exposed. The whole scandal has fallen apart. Now she can actually speak what she's been holding in the guilt that actually settled in over time inside of her. The reason I give her that benefit of the doubt is the way that she spoke the way that she spoke the first thing she says the truth has finally come out, has Hasselhoff, which means the truth was covered in layers, layers of conspiracy layers of people, but all of them have been shaved off, isn't it? And so now she says listen to this, I was the one who

00:42:55--> 00:43:09

seduced him, I started all of this. She doesn't say yes, all of those women did it. She says I did it. And the thing is, let's, let's play for a moment, her role. If she was still the same kind of person, she was back then.

00:43:10--> 00:43:51

And she was the same kind of person that she was back then she would try every trick in the book to deflect blame from herself, put it on those women put it on someone else, put it on her husband put it on somebody, not me. But now she's taking ownership to start with an hour 200 C. And by the way, so we're not he's not the one who did something wrong. The women said she says I was the one we know who let me know saw the thing. And he is no doubt from those who speak the truth is also an interesting echo into Sora. And echo is something that repeats itself right? When he came to the door back in the back in the day when he came to the door, and the shirt was ripped from behind. And

00:43:51--> 00:44:30

a witness said if a shirt is ripped from behind, she's lying. And he is from the woman I saw the thing. And here we're in no lemon aside it in and he certainly is from those absolutely from those who always tell the truth. He's the truthful, he's a true full kind of person. He never lied. He's and what this means is he never lied back then. He never he was always true when people accused him of something false. And he said I didn't do it. He wasn't lying. Then he was telling the truth then, and when he's making this claim to come back out and claim that there were women that lied against him. And I lied against him when he's implying that claim. I'm letting you know, he's telling the

00:44:30--> 00:44:59

truth. I was the one who was lying by calling him truthful. She's calling herself and everybody else a liar. That's actually what she's doing. So she's actually the key witness. You know, you have the key witness of breaks the case. She's the key witness now and she's actually now serving the cause of use of honey syrup. Now she says and the reason I testified to all of this, the reason I'm coming out and seeing all of this is as follows. Valley county Alabama, that is so that he knows that is so that he knows

00:45:00--> 00:45:31

So that who knows that use of nose, a Neela Han, who believe that I did not cheat him in the unseen. I didn't cheat him secretly. What does that mean? I didn't cheat him or I didn't deceive him secretly. What that means is I, actually before I tell you what I think it means, this is the eye of debate. The eye of debate is some say I am number 50 through 52. Actually, majority say that 52 and 53. The two IR that we're going to read to you were statements made by use of

00:45:33--> 00:45:50

this I just read to you I'll translate again, is not said by her it said by use of Elisa Lam. But I hold the contention of the minority view that this is actually being said by her. The reason I say that is as follows. You see, in the previous I, I seduced him

00:45:51--> 00:46:31

I was the one who seduced him, I know who he is. And then the next time that is so that he knows that I did not deceive him I again. Now the majority opinion is the first time I seduced him is being said by her, but I didn't cheat him in the unseen is being said by use of that seems like an unusual jump. When it's the same pronoun being used. Why would the word AI, if you read two sentences, and they both had AI in them, you think the first time it's being said by someone else, and the second time is by someone else? Unless you had a quote in the middle, he said, I so and so and so. Right? So it's more coherent reading easier reading that this is also referring to the wife

00:46:31--> 00:46:38

of the minister that I've seen becomes very different when you attribute this to use of a system. But again, from the language point of view, it's very hard to make that claim.

00:46:39--> 00:47:18

The arguments made for that are other places in the Quran, were usually allies telling the story. And in the middle of it, he'll put an eye for himself. Right? So that he jumps from them talking to him talking. But I would argue in the Quran, the only one that has the right to do that is Allah, Allah, because he's the speaker in the Quran. So when whether he's telling a story, talking about history talking about law, he can interject and put himself in there, spontaneously, but you don't find other characters being spontaneously introduced without some marker. And because there's no marker, it's more plausible that it's just her talking. But even if she's saying it, it's

00:47:18--> 00:47:42

interesting what's been held as a view about what does she mean by what she said, let's first translate what she said. And then trying to figure out what she means. The only kalyana and Neela, who will have a what an ally Elia decadal her in and she says two things so far, she says that is because he should know. That's because he should know that I did not deceive him in the unseen, meaning I did not deceive him while he was away.

00:47:44--> 00:47:57

And Allah does not guide the scheming of people who cheat. Okay, those are the two things he says she says. Now, this has been meant to say that I still love him, I still care for him. And I didn't speak bad about him while he was in jail.

00:47:58--> 00:48:40

my reading of it is a little more complex than that. I would read this as follows the word vanliga refers to the fact that I am testifying now. And I'm seeing all of that now. The fact that I seduced him, I'm telling you all of this now, because now I know he will be coming out of prison. And I would like for someone to let him know that even though I wanted him to go to jail, after he did go to jail, I didn't continue to disparage him. I didn't speak about him, as if she's saying I had a change of heart. And I didn't want I did say back then, and I want him to be humiliated, but I didn't continue to make lies against him. Also, my the stronger reading in my opinion is, and I want

00:48:40--> 00:49:16

him to know that when he comes out of jail, please let him know that as I stood on trial here, I didn't take this opportunity to lie about him like that, like I did the first time that I did not deceive him again, please let him know that I'm not the same person anymore, you understand? So I'm coming forward now. And I'd really like him to know that I did not deceive him. And then she added that I didn't falsely testify because she could have falsely testified again. But then she adds and that Allah that Allah does not guide the scheming of people who cheat.

00:49:17--> 00:49:19

Now, she mentioned Allah.

00:49:21--> 00:49:29

Yusuf Alayhi Salam left that palace saying, I have abandoned the religion of a people that don't believe in Allah. You remember?

00:49:30--> 00:49:41

When she was trying to seduce him, he said ma de la, you remember? How does she get to know about a life the entirety of Egypt does not believe in Allah who is her introduction to Allah. Yusuf Elisa.

00:49:43--> 00:49:59

Some of you have taken Shahada. Some of you were far away from Islam even as Muslims and you came closer to Islam. Can you imagine that the person who brought you close to Islam or gave you Dharma, or the person who's the reason you became Muslim one day is the person you caused the most hurt to.

00:50:01--> 00:50:42

Can you imagine the kind of guilt you would feel this person gave you but Allah made him the means by which you were given the greatest gift of your life which is your faith to believe in Allah? Does he sound like she's become a Muslim? And the Lucha Libre decadal harmony. Does that sound like she's accepted the faith does not sound like she's made Toba and she's made Toba and she's accepted the faith, then she understands now that use of Allah Salam was her means to find Allah. Can you imagine her guilt for not having for having done wrong to use if Elisa doesn't see one use of Alessandra know that I know I did so much wrong to you, but not anymore. I came out and I testified. And I said

00:50:42--> 00:51:03

that I was the one who did wrong and you are truthful. And please let him know that he can do that. So I may not get a chance to talk to him, because he's almost anticipating that she might get tossed in jail. So please let him know. He should know that I didn't cheat him again. I didn't deceive him again. While he's not even here, because my reading of this is the use of it. Sam is still in jail.

00:51:04--> 00:51:40

This trial is happening. He's not there. So they could say whatever they want behind his back. But she doesn't do so. And then she says and I've learned my lesson. Allah doesn't guide the scheming of those who cheat and this is actually something remarkable did she slander use a funny setup? She did. Allah says insert a new or principle from a love and this is not a principle that was revealed in the Quran. So it started from from the Quran, like when a lot talks about the sun as a brilliant lamp. The sun didn't start becoming bright since the Quran came. It's been bright before the Quran you understand there are some principles of a law that are timeless. So even if the Quran hadn't

00:51:40--> 00:51:54

been revealed those principles were there You understand? The Quran only informed us of those principles that already existed many of them. So here's a principle from a lot in your head woonona she alpha he shadowfang Latina Manu Laurino

00:51:56--> 00:51:58

Laurino, Daniela la hora.

00:51:59--> 00:52:11

Those who love to spread, shamelessness and shamelessness. And that is to note mean slander. Those who love to spread slander among believers have been cursed in this life and the next.

00:52:13--> 00:52:37

Now the thing is, slander is one of those unique crimes, spiritual crimes that a person can get away with. But a law says that you start living a cursed existence because you engaged in slander, not a Christian existence in the ACA only. But even now, I'd say it's a terrifying thing. She schemed by way of slander, did she not?

00:52:38--> 00:53:08

And she's now lived a few years of life. And in that few years, I think Allahu Allah from the her words, it seems that she tasted the curse of slander herself. She tasted misery herself. And she came to realize that that misery is a result of that evil crime that she committed. And she comes to realize the words of use of hurray Salaam, when she tried to seduce him first, what did he say? In the hula, you flew her volley moon, no doubt about it. People who do wrong, never get what they want.

00:53:10--> 00:53:32

People who do wrong, never get what they want. And she is almost echoing those words, a lot doesn't guide the scheme of those who cheat. This is a wrongdoing, and I will never get what I want. No. It deserves attention this, this language that Allah, he doesn't guide the scheme to guide a scheme is strange language. You've heard of guiding people.

00:53:33--> 00:54:01

We've heard of guiding a heart. How do you guide a scheme? The scheme is a person saying I'm going to do this. And it's going to result in this which is going to result in this. This will. It's like you're creating a pathway of events when you scheme, right? And you're doing something hoping for a certain result. And that result should help create a domino effect. Right? And so you're you're creating a path that you you want the events to follow.

00:54:02--> 00:54:07

And a law does not allow the events to be guided in the way that you schemed.

00:54:08--> 00:54:28

Allah doesn't let your schemes be the way that events unfold. Allah doesn't guide the scheme, you get it, of people who cheat because the people who scheme the people who do cheat, the people who lie and falsify those people have in their mind first is going to be this, then it's going to be this, there's going to be this then there's going to be

00:54:31--> 00:54:59

a loved one like that happen. I came to learn that it could be that she's seeing that now I see for a fact that uh, that that's the case. But it's interesting that she says this in the following please pay attention to this. I want him to know he should know that I didn't deceive him. He should know that Allah doesn't guide the scheming of those who cheat. Meaning he should know that what he believed has actually happened. He believed people who do

00:55:00--> 00:55:13

Never get what they want, he should know that what he believed always is actually true. He should know that he should know that that's been materialized is one thing to believe in something, it's another to see it happen.

00:55:14--> 00:55:31

I want him to know that he that this is a gift Allah has given him. It could also mean I want him to know that I mentioned Allah, I wanted to know that I learned the lesson that cheaters don't prosper. That lesson that he tried to teach me so many years ago, I'd like him to know that I learned that lesson. Now luckily Allah and Neela Formula One Allah Allah.

00:55:33--> 00:55:41

Indeed, now we come to the last slide for the day, which is number 53. And this actually, no, maybe tomorrow, I'll just do this either by itself, even though it's Thursday.

00:55:43--> 00:56:19

Or either Monday or Monday. It's okay. I don't want to take too much time and do take time for 53. But the thing is, either it's been read that 52 and 53 are statements of the life of the minister. That's the minority view, or 52 and 53. Our statements are user friendly, some so what I'll do next time in Sharla is not only will I explain to you 53 from the minister's wife's point of view as her speaking, and how that connects and what that what we can learn from it. But I'll also go back and kind of show you those who do hold the view that this is useful for some talking, what their argument is and what they feel we can learn from it. So we'll go through that also in 52 inch TV

00:56:19--> 00:56:25
