propitiously surgery where silly Emory, Dr. Tommy lasagna, cocoa leaf and hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah only he was in my bag once again, every once in a while eco Morocco to light aloe vera cut off. So today, what I want to do, I want to share with you what I want to do today and also a game plan moving into the future in sha Allah is I'm going to pick up from where we left off, I was going to do a little bit of reading, and try to contemplate on the concept of the evil if you remember, and really think about these out some more before I continued. And I did that over the weekend and had the benefit of speaking with Dr. Nedley. And asking him this question also. And he

00:01:35--> 00:02:11

promised to you know, put his thoughts together, and he prefers to put things in writing, and then send them to me. So I'm grateful that he did send me something and I'll share that with you today inshallah, when the time comes. But basically, what I want to talk to you about is the approach that I'm going to be taking, there are two separate issues, and I want to make sure that they remain separate. One is the seed and the interpretation of let's just call it 67 and 68. These two is where he's telling his son jacoba is telling his sons, and he said on to not go into the city from one gate, but to go into it from different gates, right. That's what we're talking about. And then a lot

00:02:11--> 00:02:44

of responding to that that wouldn't have benefited them in any way, shape, or form. And that discussion, right, and we've talked about that we've had one session about that. And I'm going to this will be the second session about that. But I'll be leveraging what Dr. Rocha wrote for the most part and reading through it to help you appreciate that in Sharla. The second issue is the issue of the evil eye because it has been interpreted one of its interpretations is the evil eye. But the evil eye itself is a is a broad topic. There are lots of narrations, Hadeeth, literature, a third literature surrounding it. So it's a pretty big subject by itself. And I came to the conclusion

00:02:44--> 00:03:22

along with my colleague. So him say that it's best that we leave that off as a separate discussion on its own instead of diving too deep into it here. Because even though it's a tangential issue from here, it's too big of a topic, it will take us away from the sutra itself. So I'm going to continue with the series on the surah. Dr. I can promise me to write something about the evil eye. And maybe that will spawn a series of questions from you guys. In what when and I will invite those questions when the time comes not right now. So pay attention not right now. But when the time comes, I'll invite those questions, incorporate them, perhaps have him write something even more, or maybe even

00:03:22--> 00:03:55

have a live session with him, chat with him. And have you guys attend that session in your life. he's open to it. He's theoretically open to it. But we'll see when the time comes no promises yet. But in any case, let's come back to the layout at hand. Let me translate them once again for you and then I'll walk you through what you know what was sent to me and I'm very honored that he wrote that for me and humbled enough and for all of your benefit, of course. So we spill out from under him lokala mania and there's a mistake I made in the last session I said when he isn't asleep It is not that would be buena Yeah, my little son banias from benina it's the German with a curse on him. So

00:03:55--> 00:04:32

that was a you know lapse of my you know, grammar so Binya just means my son so he said my son's loaded Holloman babinda hidden do not enter from a single gate where the lumen of webbing with authority button and enter rather enter from multiple or different gates. Well my only unconditional love him and Shay and I cannot make you independent from ally in any way shape or form. Which means I cannot give you a benefit that can only come from Allah or nothing I do will make you so safe that you no longer need safety from Allah that's the idea of if not if not means you've made someone independent where they don't need nobody else right? a loved one of the last names is honey, that

00:04:32--> 00:05:00

alone is not in need of anyone else. In modern Arabic the word honey became used for someone who's rich, but actually behind it isn't money behind it is the idea that someone's who's rich doesn't need anybody else. Like people need his or her wealth. They don't need anybody else's money. That's that's kind of the idea behind luminol becoming of any right but actually the and in classical Arabic also allows me out you know, the independence was associated with wealth because

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

With wealth came a kind of independence, I can live where I want, I can buy what I want that kind of thing, right? But as a verb it means to give to give somebody independence and from it also, for example, is is still not, is still not in Arabic as a verb is used for when you don't need anybody, or you're not dependent on anybody that is orajel is still not over and in us, right the dignity of a person is they don't they're not dependent on anybody else. So being independent is part of one's dignity isn't you know, old saying, so when he says My only uncommon Allah human shame, he's saying whatever I do, is not going to basic, a distant but kind of catches the idea translation would be, I

00:05:39--> 00:06:15

can't benefit you instead of a line anyway. Or I can't benefit you against the laws decree in any way. But it's more than benefit, I can't make you independent. I mean, I can't make you someone who won't need any other source of protection other than me, you know, and I can't give you any benefit that is only can only come from a larger will in any way, shape or form. So even though I'm telling you to take this precaution, that is not a substitute of your dependence on a larger amount of money uncommon Allah human chain, this is an important concept because sometimes people in different religions, Islam included, or some strands of Islam included, most Muslims or Christians or Hindus,

00:06:15--> 00:06:55

anybody they start becoming very dependent on not the not Allah, not God, but symbols. Right, and the symbols are what's going to protect me. So I'm wearing like an item kursi chain, and that's why no truck is going to hit me when it's raining on the highway. Because the symbol it's not a law protecting me, it's this amulet that's protecting me, or it's the copy of the Quran in the dashboard that's protecting me, right? Or, you know, they'll have not they don't put Bibles in hotel rooms for people to read. But yeah, the idea is the room is blessed, and you're safe. Now they'll put it in the hotel rooms or put Bibles inside them, right? Or people will put artwork and you know,

00:06:55--> 00:07:32

remembrance of Allah not for the purpose of remembering a lot. That would be a great thing. Right? When people do weird things, they'll take portions away out of the Quran like Alif Lam Meem cough hyah inside, you know, how meme, the horror of mocha tart and then beginning of the sources letters, right, they'll make a grid of them and put all those letters and put them on the fridge that way the bananas won't expire so quickly, right or something. Like the idea is somehow this is gonna, this is gonna protect this measure that we're going to take. The thing is, ironically, a lot of these symbols, the Sharia, their purpose was to teach us to only depend on Allah.

00:07:33--> 00:08:11

And the irony is sometimes these symbols are what people depend on more than actually a lot more instead of Allah, even instead of Allah, this is why somebody will go to the karma, the karma that has no sure it has no consciousness, it's not a living thing. The karma is a piece of stone, I'm gonna go to it before he kisses the black stone and say, I know you're nothing but a stone, you can help me, you can harm me, but I kiss you because my Prophet did. But that's what he'll say to this piece of stone. That's what it is. But people will go there. And they will you know, body slammed the Kaaba and kind of rubbing themselves on it, or they'll take they'll, you know, stash scissors.

00:08:11--> 00:08:48

And they'll cut out a piece of the head off the, you know, the covering on the Kaaba, and then take it home and put it in a special place. And kind of whenever they have a problem, they hold that and make dollars on weird stuff. But this is this is going way beyond what anything was saying. But the idea from it, is we can take certain measures, right, but those measures, even if you're talking about protecting from evil lie, those measures do not make you save, it's a law that makes you say, that's a law that makes you safe and alive. Even if you take the idea that this there's some validity to taking precautions or protecting yourself from Ebola, because, you know, I read

00:08:48--> 00:09:21

different kinds of articles on the subject. And, you know, one of them did talk about how you should not be so exposed, right? You should not if you have something good going on, you just got a nice car, or you got a promotion or something like that. Don't talk to too many people about it. Right? Just kind of not make it so obvious. Or don't put so many pictures of yourself online, you'll catch the evil eye, that kind of thing, right? Or you'll be so you don't want the attention of people on the blessings you're enjoying. Right? And that's a classical, actually bit of advice, early scholars talking about this advice to protect yourself from evil. But even if you do, even if you you know,

00:09:21--> 00:09:58

earned a great bonus and you got a couple of million dollars or whatever, or you have the nicest car and you keep it in the garage and nobody's outside going to see it or catch the evil that doesn't mean you're safe safety still comes from Allah. You see, so that's just one dimension of your and it's something you feel, just like Yahuwah is um, it can be attributed is something he felt inside him. illa hajat and enough seocho bachata that's it. That's pretty much the you know the story behind it. But anyway, so that's go back to translating Macedonia unhuman Allah himanshi illa ha jetten Actually, no, that's an exile. in Isla Haku Illa de la the verdict belongs with a line of law

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

alone with no one else

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

decision in the end is a laws and the laws alone. And then he says either hit our country on him alone do I rely, I'm not relying on you going from different doors working out things for you. That's just a measure I want you to take. But it is not tape is not a substitute for my exclusive reliance on Allah. I need you to understand that. I'm not going to be thinking well, they went through different doors and still something didn't work out. Still they copy that's not how I think, are they hit overcome to where are they he failure to work, a little bit of acumen beautiful phrase, once again, we returned to it, those who are going to rely should rely on him. So he's making a

00:10:37--> 00:11:14

general comment now. And what is behind that general comment? What is behind that general comment is a truth about a lot of people in virtually any religion, and also in our religion and Islam. And in the religion of Islam from the time of jacobellis Adam, sometimes people become more reliant on secondary things, and they forget the primary. They let go of the primary. So for example, some of you think that you have the evil eye, somebody did it on you, you went to a party, you look really nice. And ever since then you had acne. And I'd say the evil eye on that pie. Look, listen, you ate too much chocolate. That's why you have acne. But anyway, let's just say somebody looked at you the

00:11:14--> 00:11:50

wrong way. And that's why you popping out everywhere and all of that right? Now you got to find someone to run on you. And you better find someone whose beard is long enough for it to work. And they better have really checked them for COVID first, whatever, you know, get it off of you hold on a second, you're asleep of a law. You don't need another slave of a lot of to bring a less protection to you. You know somebody or someone else. Allah gave every believer the Quran, Allah gave every believer that they could have the remembrance of Allah. Allah gave you the ability to remember him. And if there is an evil eye on you, you believe so he gave you certain Fanuc and he

00:11:50--> 00:12:26

gave you certain us and give you item kursi he gave you the Fatiha he didn't give it to a half of the Quran only that you go to him like you go to a pharmacy and say I need a prescription, go recite this for me. That's not that's not what this religion is. You can do that yourself. You're directly answerable to Allah, you have a lot in hand some people the solutions that you go to Allah give you access to those solutions. Yes, when there's a matter of knowledge, when there's something you don't know, you go to people who know better than you. But when it comes to remembering Allah, you don't go to someone who remembers a lot better than you. Allah has given every heart the opportunity to

00:12:26--> 00:12:59

connect them. Some hearts are not more qualified than other hearts. Some minds can be more qualified, absolutely. I don't get something, I don't understand something, I need some wisdom. I'll go to somebody with, you know, more years behind them, more knowledge behind them more experience behind them, I'll go to them. But when it comes to my own remembrance of Allah, I need another person for that, or protection for from Allah azza wa jal, I want that protection from Allah, I don't need to go to someone who will recite something for me, and then I'll be protected. Or somebody else will give me a prescription and, you know, this kind of thing. You know, it makes its

00:12:59--> 00:13:31

way into the oma in strange ways. So for example, when somebody says, Hey, I'm pregnant, could you tell me what to recite? Or, you know, when my wife is in delivery, what should I be reciting, or recital of money and that's going to work because you know, there's a delivery in the soul. So recycled material, which has no authentic basis that that's a tradition to do. But we make a correlation, right, this lady is going to have a baby. And William said it I had a baby. So this should work out well, except your cheese and delivery, about to give birth, and she's reciting. She's hearing the recitation of a woman who gave birth who wish that she was dead, before this day

00:13:31--> 00:13:42

came. And this was one of the worst, most difficult days of her life that Allah tested her more than any other test in her entire life. And then when she had this baby, she was publicly humiliated. There is a little bit of a,

00:13:44--> 00:14:22

like Allah made that happen. But also there are other elements to that narrative, and those that don't correspond with what you want in your situation. Right. So we and and what happens? Well, the delivery will go well, if you do this, if you do this, and I don't think you'll find more of an advocate. And there are but I'm a very strong advocate of every believer having a strong connection with the Quran. But when the Quran itself is turned into an amulet, window, Quran recitation itself has just turned into just sounds that will protect you. And those sounds can protect you. But if it's been reduced to that it's a crime.

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

That's it came actually to remove this kind of thinking, to get rid of and this is, he's not allowing that kind of thinking to enter into the minds of his sons immediately says, I place my trust in Him. And any who is going to rely should rely exclusively on a law xojo. And by the way, I'll say something, some of you might find this, you know, controversial, doesn't matter. Here's what what you need to understand. When you need to remember a line your time of need, and you don't know any Arabic and you don't know a neutron and you didn't memorize any special laws. You can still remember a line the law will still protect you

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

You can even remember Allah in Portuguese, or in Punjabi, or in psyche, or in Bahasa, Allah knows all those languages, he kind of made them. He's the owner of all languages. You have in the Quran, young men in sort of God, who don't have any knowledge of Scripture, they just turn to God in whatever language they know. They just, they just turn to him this sincere Allah is not interested in what comes off the tongue. Allah wants what's coming out of the heart. Illumina de la Have you convinced Salim Ibrahim, Allah Islam is having profound discoveries about Allah before revelation comes to him. Before revelation revelation is there to teach us how to connect to Allah. And these

00:15:38--> 00:16:03

words have sacred power. But if you start thinking that without these words, you have no connection to Allah, then you're wrong. And you're absolutely wrong. And that's, that's not the right way to think about our Deen. You know, and it doesn't take away the sacredness of these words. But if that fundamental connection to Allah isn't there, then you don't appreciate that these words that Allah has given us only reinforce that connection that's already there. While God Allah meetha

00:16:05--> 00:16:40

meetha has already been taken from you, the light has already been put inside you. This is neuron, Allah No, this is the light on top of that light. This isn't the only light the light already exists. So sometimes when we don't understand that we even start misusing represent, you know, Revelation and may not realize it may Allah protect us from doing so. What am I the Holloman? hifu Amara home abou home and when they entered from where their dad had instructed them, their father had instructed them Makana Eugenia and hoomin Allah himanshi. It wasn't going to make them independent from a leading ally in any way, shape or form allows repeating what Jakub said, I told

00:16:40--> 00:17:17

you that last time to ilaha jetten vena cava except for a need in the inside of use of in the person of use of that he dealt with that he did away with meaning he had to fulfill this need that he had inside him to tell him to tell them to go from different doors. This is where the interpretation comes, what's this need inside him? And the interpretation has been the need to protect from evil eyes. Right. We'll explore that a little deeper. today. We're in the hula door element alumna who, and he certainly is someone truly someone who possesses great knowledge that we have taught him. What I can knock solemnise Eli on the moon. However, most people have no knowledge at all. They

00:17:17--> 00:17:32

don't know what kind of knowledge we've given him. He's got some profound knowledge that allows origin has taught him now this is a rough translation of the on the subject of the evil eye. What I'm going to do to do with you guys now is I'm going to read to you with Dr. Graham so graciously sent to me, so if you can show that on the screen.

00:17:33--> 00:18:08

This kind of gave me the giggles because he mentioned me by name in this article. He didn't just send it to me he posted it so I'll read the Arabic And I'll translate this for you guys so you guys can see it and surely you can appreciate the work that he's put into it. Bismillah R Rahman Rahim now translating that the Syriac Daniella to lumen babinda the explanation or the interpretation of my son's don't enter from a single gate because I'm Dr. Muhammad Akram nadwi by the pen of Dr. accommodatie, Oxford and Oxford, one of the Ilia so I'm in cable by annual models. And you start not mine Ali Han Elmo came filled with lm likea.

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

So he says a question was posed to me from the famous Koran researcher statmore Manali, Han living in the United States, I was like, Oh, my name.

00:18:20--> 00:18:25

How's geeking out my friend, look here on my name and an article. Man, I'm famous.

00:18:26--> 00:19:11

Okay, anyway, I'm serious. Colet, aku, antithetical Yahuwah salam, you have any Allahu lumen barbin wa hidden about the interpretation of the words of Yaqoob. My sons don't come in from a single door, where the Illumina Baba can enter from multiple doors or different doors. Now, is there a law the equality selfie fee, along with a, you know, an analysis of different opinions in the past, or early scholarship in regards to this matter? So he says, I asked him to give me a survey of how this was thought about and how this was, you know, analyzed. Before I continue to read, I want you to know, there's a methodology in scholarly writing, I'm not scholarly. He certainly is. So here's the

00:19:11--> 00:19:53

methodology in scholarly writing, before you present your opinion, you present the opinions that you have read, and that you've studied, you present all views that you've come across, right? And you you look at that, so that, first of all, what that does for your reader, is it for a scholarly reader, it informs the scholar, the reader, that the person who's about to present their opinion is not oblivious to these other opinions. They didn't just come up with their opinion and ignored and they must not have read, whatever. Now, I don't do that in my lectures. Sometimes I do. But most of the times, I'll present what I find most convincing. And I don't present all the opinions that I

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

have read and compare them because that's a different kind of study. That's the comparative to see

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

Kind of study, I'll get to the what I understand to be the most compelling argument, for the most part. And even if I do present the alternative view, it'll be just kind of bunching together a, you know, overall kind of a bird's eye view of the opposing views, and present that to you, but not quoting every single person who said it, you understand? Now, what that can lead someone to say, Well, he didn't mention this other view, so he must not know it. So let me just Google it and tell him, Hey, you missed one. It's not because I missed one. And I may have, but I don't mention it. Because that's not the purpose of this particular series. My goal in this series, and the series of

00:20:38--> 00:21:22

a deeper look at the Quran that I'm trying to do over the next decade is to do the study, and then present some of what I find, as as deep as I can, but not come across as a geeky exercise not come across as an intellectual exercise. This is not for Tafseer students, this is for the general public, that may not be engaged in the study of FCA. So these names may not be relevant for them, but they should, they still should have access to some of the lessons that have been discussed and some of this deeper material. So I consider myself kind of a filter between academic sources, and popular discussion, right. And just because you're speaking in easy language, doesn't mean that you

00:21:22--> 00:21:57

don't, you shouldn't have the scholarly backing. But the problem is, if I take the scholarly backing and start talking about it in scholarly language, then you guys will have the best sleep of your lives. Some of you already do, while I talk, but that was that that will be like coma state. Right, but for and that would be really cool for people that are studying in the Islamic universities or have graduated or, you know, people that are into, you know, aluma to see it and, you know, the seal mokara and those sciences of Quran study, that would be a really cool discussion for them. But it wouldn't be relevant for all of you, which is why I'm not doing the job of the IOP or just

00:21:57--> 00:22:26

discussing the jewel of every word, the the roots of every word, etc. There's a time and place for that sometimes, but my primary agenda is as healers, how do you make this easy to grasp and get to the point, but what he wrote for me is a scholarly piece, right? relatively scholarly, he, when he puts something out on WhatsApp, that's his way of watering things down so he's way deeper than that. This is his watered down what I'm about to read to you, and you'll hear a lot of repetition, and I'll tell you at the end why Okay, so now listen.

00:22:28--> 00:22:52

Khalid Imam Abu Jafar appleberry fettucini here pulita Allah diku Kalia Oliva De Lima Lima Raja Raja min en de la Missa. Via tomorrow Tom Yamani, Allah Hello, Mr. Rahman, kenwa, hidden alumina bobbin with Mr. buddhafield property. And his interpretation and his call in his karmic commentary on the Quran says that Allah who was meant names should be mentioned in the highest way

00:22:54--> 00:23:33

says that Yahoo said to his sons when they left from him to head towards Egypt to get food my sons don't enter Egypt from a single pathway, enter from different gates with a color color palette. And then he mentioned that he said that to them, the color the home delivery and the home can do the job in the home, Jamal Why? And he said that to them because these were men that possessed beauty and good form they were strong well built men and good looking men for alpha Himalayan so he was afraid of the evil eye to fall upon them. Either De Luca Martin mentally thin or hidden. If they were to enter as a group together that would catch too much attention and that's why he said well whom what

00:23:33--> 00:24:04

to do or Julian Why didn't and they are the sons of a single father meaning while one Father all these sons, that's a strong family. That's the kind of idea right? Because in ancient times sons were strength right now having too many children's a year that many kids why, but back then the more kids you have, the stronger You are right, about a home and yet affordable COVID de haut de La Hoya so he instructed them to diversify themselves in entering the city meaning break up. Don't go as one group break up and go from different gates, when Allah Danica,

00:24:06--> 00:24:36

Danica and on this elephant this has been transmitted from some of the earlier scholars also or even earlier predecessors for anybody I Bersin. And then then also of course, narrated from the urban our bus or the Lahore in Houma. Allah Baba COVID A Salaam Alaikum jacobellis salaam fear the evil eye. Well I'm Mohammed Dominica and Muhammad Imran Khan married Kanaka Shia and the Himalayan he said he feared the evil eye for them. When Qatada Qatada says Hershey and Abby maybe you lost a lot more. Elena Alemany

00:24:37--> 00:24:59

that Rasulullah saw them himself used to fear the evil life for his sons and he's referring to his grandsons Hassan and Hussein. There's a narration about that, that he gave them some of God and said, This is what Abraham I guess I'm used to say to a smile in his heart. We'll get to that when we do the narration discussion on a line. What kind of that we saw with Jamal and they possess good, you know, beauty and they were good looking. Well, all of the hug

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

it these are early names. This is first second generation names of the Herc says he feared the evil eye for them well and even his hub and even his hug from it means hakala Hirsi Ali Are you known as the hate at him and the only logical environment that he feared for them, the eyes falling the evil is falling on people falling on them because of their form and because they are have a single father called as a machete. francorchamps actually says in his Kashif in, no matter how human your human body why he only prevented them from going from a single or prohibited them from going from a single gate. Yet no one can do that in mushara Hassan because they were our situs a site and they were

00:25:44--> 00:25:53

pretty glorious to look at is the Loomis lab and he adds something now so this is new. So it was a machine is adding something that we haven't read thus far.

00:25:54--> 00:26:32

So he says esta hora home Aloo Misra bill Cordoba and Al Maliki will tuck the metal house and let the lambda code lady him. He says that that glory and that, you know, that appeal they had made them made them famous among the people of Egypt also because of their closeness to the king. And the honor the special honor that he gave them that he didn't give to others. So this is lending itself to not something that Dr. accom wrote, but something I want to explain to you guys, when you suffer this alarm, call them ask them questions said you have a brother, that's not that's from your father, bring him to me. Some scholars, including them actually interpreted that to mean that they

00:26:32--> 00:27:09

must have been so impressive, or he used a very some made it look like they're so impressive, I want to meet the whole family. Right. So he gave them this special kind of attention. And they interpreted that encounter as such that they got this special hospitality and attention that other groups didn't get. And so that's kind of playing into that interpretation is playing into how they're going to look at this multiple gait theory. Right? So the so what's the kind of underlying idea? The underlying idea is, you found them very impressive. And if the highest the second in command in the country finds you impressive, the country finds you impressive, right? So that's why

00:27:09--> 00:27:12

this interpretation is going to follow. As a point of disclaimer,

00:27:14--> 00:27:48

myself, I'm not convinced of that particular view. Only because the conversation that happened between them and use of honey, Sam was not entirely positive. He said, Don't come with him and you're not you're not going to get a single load from me, and you better not come near me. That doesn't sound like they were honored. You know, that sounds like I've taken care of you, but you better not be lying to me. You claim you have a brother, you better prove it. Bring him with you. Right. So that doesn't sound to me like the crema, but that has been interpreted that way. It's not coming from law school law. So um, so there's room for disagreement here. But anyway, for karnavati

00:27:48--> 00:28:25

to mohale I'm sorry, la him by Ningbo food and that's why they became such an object of you know, people looking at them you know, with with vine eyes, so people will say man I wish I had that kind of attention from the vice president. They look at the kind of you know, I'm from all the food meaning all the foreigners that came they got the top treatment so all the foreigners are looking at a man How come they get to go in front of the line? They got they got hooked up, they got they got set up. So that's the kind of picture that's being painted here by a machete. What onion Shara lamb cassava, that fingers will be pointed at them as they walk by those are the ones that the king was.

00:28:25--> 00:28:29

Remember that guy those guys? Wow, they are pretty amazing.

00:28:30--> 00:28:34

Man. I will they're gonna go back with all the horses. All those camels filled up.

00:28:36--> 00:29:16

That's a sweet deal, man. I wish I had a connection like that. So that kind of thing. So and you shall link him below sabia. bacala. How will you call How will that you have the money and it's also been said that these are the the guests of the king. Louie lay him. Look at them. Man. Oksana Herman feitian. Wow, what impressive young men What beautiful young men? Well, not economic. How much honor did they get? How much do they deserve? The Emory mahkamah humble medical Korean makers, the king himself honored them. And you know, when you serve at a salon said, Don't you see that I'm the best of those who show hospitality. So some scholars interpreted to mean that especially to them, he gave

00:29:16--> 00:29:49

them a lot of hospitality. I interpreted that differently for you guys. I said, I'm more convinced of the view that use of algorithms is saying I take care of all foreigners. And I don't give them second class citizen treatment. Haven't you seen how I've treated everybody but their interpretation was no Haven't you seen how I treated you especially right? So they they and that interpretation is now playing into this that they got this special treatment that nobody else got of all the other foreigners that came from all other places and therefore they were the object of the evil eye everybody was kind of looking at them and saying wow, I wish I wish I got that kind of special

00:29:49--> 00:29:50

treatment. Okay

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

well for me him a little wifey Dina Allah He exactly that, that there that they received preference over other emissaries that came other you know, people

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

came for half a liter Lika and yet Hulu Coke, coca wahida That's why he was afraid that they would come in from one entrance for your annually Jamali him originality and bring him for sudo. So they would get the evil eye coming at them because of their beauty and because of the honor and glory that came to him in the hearts of people. Now let's talk a little bit about the, you know, for you see, boom, I assume and so what would harm them would come and hit them. Let's talk about the evil eye for a quick second, though, as it as it pertains to this discussion before I read further,

00:30:31--> 00:31:06

the evil eye can be looked at as two things one, somebody looked at you the wrong way and said, Man, I wish I had it looks like that I wish I was that tall, or Oh, well, they're, they're so their beard is so nice or something. They said something like that. And the next thing you know, your hair starts falling off your beard or whatever happens, right? So one way you can think about the evil eyes, people looked at you the wrong way. And bad stuff started happening to you mysteriously. Like you just now you can't help but step one, banana peels everywhere you go, and slip and fall on your face. Or the evil. That's the mysterious evil eye, right? So somebody looks at you. And somehow,

00:31:07--> 00:31:15

everywhere you go, something bad happens, right? But the other one is not so mysterious. somebody looks at you the wrong way. And then they're like,

00:31:16--> 00:31:18

my Why? How can they get all that attention? I don't.

00:31:19--> 00:31:48

If I can get what they have, then they shouldn't have what they have either. Right? So I if I can pull myself up, I figured out how I can bring them down. Right? So the evil eye can lead to jealousy. Jealousy can go from thought to comments, from comments to scheming from scheming to even action, right? So that's the second when somebody says evil I, it may not just mean I gave them a good old laser beam. And now watch what's what's going to happen next.

00:31:50--> 00:32:28

Now, they're gonna get a red light, every time they go in traffic, ah, nobody has that kind of power. But when somebody has an evil eye, and they plan on doing something with it, like they hate that you're happy, they hate that you're, you know, you you're you're you're enjoying yourself, they hate that you're doing well or whatever, they can't stand now they want to do something to change your state. That's also the evil isn't it? So the starting point is the same. Somebody looked at you the wrong way, or looked with jealousy or with some kind of hatred, right? But its effects could be mysterious, the way that has been understood traditionally. And it could be something that's a chain

00:32:28--> 00:33:00

of a series of events or comments or words that the person initiates. Now, by the way, classically, it's also been said that you can get the evil eye for someone who loves you had no evil intent, they just looked at you and didn't, didn't Bless you, right? They didn't say Mashallah subotica law or something like that, and say, Oh, you look so nice. You know, you lost you lost so much weight, it looks so good. Next thing, you know, you're obese. And that that's been interpreted as, they didn't mean to say that they were that's just your your brother's proud of you, your dad is happy or whatever. But they didn't say Mashallah bottom line, everything went downhill from there. This is

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

the kind of discussion we're gonna have in the evil eye session. How does that work? And if that works, how does it work? What are the mechanics of it? Okay, and what do we understand from our tradition from it? But anyway, let's come back to this back to the machine for you'll see boom, I assume so something that would harm them? What would hit them? Not necessarily mysteriously, somebody might try to rob them, spread rumors about them, whatever, right? They could hurt them in other ways. But in any case, I'm using him with the foot rockfill, carotid oola and the machetes rationale and that is why he didn't give them the advice to go from different doors the first time

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

because the first time they weren't famous yet. They weren't given special treatment. Yeah, there were just some people walking in like everybody else is walking in the unknown ganhou Machu Lena Marina bananas and that's because they were unknown. And they were completely anonymous with on people they weren't a big deal.

00:33:52--> 00:34:34

What color my word even connected with you in his book in his work in my world he says well female half either him or woman who had gone as far as them coming in from a single door there are two opinions huduma and nahata. Allah Himalayan Sami Is everything okay? Okay. I had a woman and now have an aha father humanoid. The first of them that he feared that evil life for them will the unknown can the least for our German there was sort of a German because they were good looking. They were good, you know in good shape. wirkkala who ignore Abbas when Mujahideen Ambassador had said this was funny. And now half Allah human Malik Anuradha, Houma, quwata home for yo Patricia became

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

Hassan hevron. He's saying that it's another opinion has also been that the king himself so the one above use of or if they're thinking of the use of as the King, right, but anyway, the one above use of Assam was a he saw their number and their power. So he wants to he doesn't like anybody having those kinds of numbers or partially the king himself could get jealous of them and want to take hold of them or be precaution that these guys might become too.

00:35:00--> 00:35:36

Powerful or something like that. Well Carla Allah whoa Babu Mata at and some later folks have forwarded this opinion right find out a very weak opinion but that's been said. Now he's not commenting on whether he agrees or disagrees right he's just listing and notice as I read this he repeated evil is evil or evil I this one said evil like this one said he will like this one. What what's the point of a scholar doing that? The point of them doing that is to let you know they did their reading, man. So you googling and saying, hey, you missed one. Don't do the kind of research they do have some appreciation. Because, you know, you can search it and read it and tell but when

00:35:36--> 00:36:13

what's the scholar, when they say these names, they know these people's lives. They know these people's works. It says if they've lived among them, this is the kind of time they spend in their books. That's why there's a richness and depth and scholarship that I have a lot of respect for. Right when someone even if they propose an opinion, that's a novel idea. It's different or it's the minority position, the fact that they can demonstrate that they have a good view of what's in front of them. Right. And they're not in denial of that that's a respectable trait, instead of just dismissing it, now, he's gonna get to his position called Madhava into him into Lilia, Maria COVID

00:36:13--> 00:36:20

jacoba jacoba, Bonnie hibbett, the whole Minh babinda Headley and the half Allah Himalayan Mushkil, when would you

00:36:21--> 00:36:44

what people have leaned towards what they are inclined towards to give the reasoning that the instruction of young sons to enter the door from a single gate because he was afraid of the evil AI is problematic for a number of a number of reasons. So now he's saying I say that this seems to be to me problematic for a number of reasons. Hold on a second. Hold up.

00:36:45--> 00:37:04

He mentioned some pretty heavy names up there now. Have been our bus, the Huck Qatada mukai, of poverty. He mentioned some heavy machinery, these are not light names. These are heavy hitting scholars and Sahaba and davine. So how is he going to take all those opinions all that opinion and say, Oh, that's problematic?

00:37:05--> 00:37:45

Because the average Muslim will say, Excuse me, you. You can say it's a little above your paygrade to say that's problematic. Who are you to say that their interpretation is problematic and yours is better? Right? That's a reasonable response. The Sahaba knew better. The earliest generations knew better. cradle koroni Carney, from Bolivia, Maria Luna, Hamza, Malvina, the bus generation, is my generation, then the one who follows them, the one who follows them. This is a serious question. How can someone disagree with a popular interpretation that even may be attributed to the companions of the Prophet? Well, the Allahu anhu is Brian was a Lola while he was Santa is not a serious question.

00:37:46--> 00:38:07

Like if we're going to talk about the interpretation of the Quran, and somebody is offering a view that disagrees with a Sahabi. That's a pretty serious thing. How are we supposed to think about that? That's where I'm going to leave your brain teased, because I'm going to do a live session with sohaib. on that subject. How do we as Muslims, think about that I've seen of the Sahaba. And why is there disagreement after they've spoken?

00:38:08--> 00:38:16

In fact, even our boss says his opinion or the lohana, for example? And after that, you find many different views among scholars, not us, among them.

00:38:17--> 00:38:55

Amongst How about you? Why? How dare they? How does that work? How are we supposed to think about that? Does that mean everything is up for re interpretation? Everything can be revisited, we have to consider anything they said? Or do we close the doors for rethinking? Or revisiting? Which What do we do? How are we supposed to balance that? This is one of the things I hope to open up for you guys, as I engage in this series, I don't just want to share with you what I've come to learn or understand. I want to share thought process like how do we analyze our religion? How do we look at our tradition? How do we think about it? Because the Quran is very focused on us becoming people of

00:38:55--> 00:39:35

thought, more so than people of knowledge, you know, a lot criticize people who don't think, a lot of an attack, you know, don't don't even think Don't, don't you think, you know? So this is a goal of ours to kind of evolve our thinking or to make our thinking more sophisticated as an omen about our religion, about how we think about these things. So hopefully, I'll have a session about that. I think tomorrow, before we continue on the subject, but anyway, so now let's go to his so he says is problematic. He said for a number of reasons. So he's gonna give his reasons now. Number one, Lima de la vida, Himalayan Filmora, una. How come he didn't fear the evil eye for them the first time

00:39:35--> 00:39:59

around? Well, some I'm sure he answered that. As I'm sure he said, Well, they weren't famous the first time around. That's why he didn't fear the evil eye he says is his habit to Misawa Holloman Robin, why, generally when they entered from a single door, it's not the people because you know, the interpretation is they were famous now fingers were pointed at them. But other scholars didn't say that. They just said they shouldn't come in from one door because it's going to be

00:40:00--> 00:40:20

You know they're just gonna get attention any because they're good looking men isn't that what was said over and over again because there were still good looking the first time around and they still went through one gate the first time around so why not stop that that creates a problem that needs to be answered at least right. The second is it gets more interesting. You might not have it him in Marathi. Sania will em to save homeline Filmora Tallulah

00:40:21--> 00:40:31

How come he didn't fear the evil eye on them? When what why would he fear the evil eye for them when they came back completely fine the first time around.

00:40:33--> 00:41:06

While Jerry Leahy for the Hina jesselyn they came back happy and joyous, the first time around, you know, somebody comes back after getting hurt. You're not going out there without taking some precaution. Hey, let me get some put on you. We don't want happening what happened last time. So if something bad had happened, then you would understand that he wants to take extra precaution. But he came back perfectly happy. But you know, even though he raises this issue, there's an easy answer to that too. Because things went good this time. You might want to become more even more precaution, you know, be cautious and say things went well, but let's make sure they stay well. Right so that

00:41:06--> 00:41:22

could be an answer to this criticism. But his criticisms get deeper with that it's okay for you in federal home with a fork in the road or homesearch Timmy Runa Casillas Malik How is being coming in from different gates gonna help them benefit them when they can all gather at the gate of the king anyway?

00:41:23--> 00:42:00

Even if they come from different doors where they're going to reunite at the gate a fella to see boohooman tomorrow he was so till Medina isn't evil I gonna hit them when they gather together in the middle of the city Hayfield up in Nashville, Dan in Nashville, Metallica, were all the different countries people, all the different villages, all the different ethnicities of people. If they're coming to Egypt for food, where are they gonna all gather? Where's gonna be the biggest gathering the gate or the main head office? The palace, right? So if they're going to be united at the palace, this doesn't really help the evil eye because that's where the biggest crowd is. And that's where

00:42:00--> 00:42:38

they're back together again, will be Delica Your job is actually and by that in his opinion. This is where the weakness of Xhosa his opinion becomes apparent meaning the idea that they were famous, that's why people would point fingers at them and that's why he wanted the evil eye to stay away from the well. I think more people would point fingers as you get closer and closer to what the castle and when you're at the gates of the castle and you're there, you know at the palace itself where the waiting areas the lobby is or whatever is that's where the people are gathered, so it doesn't really work. What Robbie Lima de la Himalayan factory. How come he wasn't afraid of the evil

00:42:38--> 00:43:04

eye for them on the road? How do you feel you're more Runa Adam Carolla flatten of nothingness when they're gonna pass by different villages, and different kinds of people, and they're looking for FEMA, you know, like Assad. And among those people are people that have evil eyes and jealous people too. So it's not just at the gates that you find jealous people. The entire road is full of jealous people and people with evil eyes. Well, comments and no mean baiting. I love this one.

00:43:05--> 00:43:27

And fifthly they are from a family, a house that has Prophethood in it, who's the Prophet? jacobellis? Maybe they don't maybe they deny us his prophecy so far. But at least they know their father is a prophet, right? They know that and their grandfather is a prophet and their great grandfather was a prophet and they know all of this. They know all of them, okay? For the Buddha and takuna de him Salawat What

00:43:28--> 00:43:29

that means

00:43:30--> 00:44:09

is it is absolutely essential and no way around it that they must have words, prayers, do ours. For utterances, phrases that protect them from the evil eye because they come from a house of prophecy. Shouldn't they have remembrances of a lot like prophets taught us our prophets on some taught us to draw for entering the home for leaving the home for putting clothes on for going outside for looking good for getting married for eating food or finishing food for meeting people? Like he he taught us how we're looking in the mirror. You know, there's dogs for every occasion they come from a family of prophethood Shouldn't they know the words that will protect them? And then so behind this FLIR

00:44:10--> 00:44:45

has been shadowline he will have said woman Shabana fossati for sure shouldn't saying our other Billahi min ash Should I seek refuge of a lie cling to Allah from all evil from the evil of the eye from the evil of jealousy from the evil of those who blow into knots? What's he saying by blowing into knots? He's referring to what we have called a little bit of luck. When Charlie McCulloch mentioned the law Second, it was a commercial Rena fossati local woman sorry, the climax has he didn't either hazard the evil of the one who shows jealousy. So if our Quran gave us that but Allah has given the of God to remember and protect yourself from evils from the earlier days, they must

00:44:45--> 00:44:58

have their version of swords and Falak. Right. Behind this criticism, this number five is something very deep. Please listen to this carefully. I'm adding this on. So you know, he says all I'm saying. I'm saying this is not what Dr. Crump says.

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

If they come from a house of prophecy,

00:45:03--> 00:45:42

protecting yourself, number one will come from, like if it's from the evil eye than protecting yourself Well, number one come from the earth God that have been taught by revelation. And the remembrance of a lion seeking refuge with a lie is such a fundamental teaching of our religion, from times of seeking the refuge in Allah. That should be number one. And if you want to take other measures to protect yourself from evil eyes, that should be precautionary measure number two, like the security gate number one, the big gate is seeking refuge with Allah. And the secondary gate is some other precautionary measures. Right? If he's a prophet, what should he be giving his sons

00:45:42--> 00:45:42

first?

00:45:44--> 00:46:05

precautionary measure number one, why would he has a prophet go to measures number two, that's the kind of criticism that's being raised here of that view. What's sad is in the law, either the cup and the hula homerun hi to Amara Bula. Me and Falco. Sixth, Allah Himself said that them coming from different gates from the word their dad had instructed them didn't benefit them.

00:46:06--> 00:46:10

Let me before I go further, I mean, put this to you in a different way.

00:46:11--> 00:46:14

I want you to come from the other road.

00:46:15--> 00:46:27

Because I want you to be safe. Right? And then when you came from the other road, I say, Man that didn't help at all You coming from the other road didn't help at all? What could that mean? That you were still unsafe?

00:46:28--> 00:46:57

Right? When Allah says them coming from different doors didn't benefit them at all. One possible way of interpreting that would mean if he wanted to save them from the evil eye, and it didn't benefit them means they got hit with the evil eye. Because it didn't work. The idea of it didn't benefit them could be thought of as it didn't work. Not necessarily but that's one way of looking at it. But then the Quran would have said it didn't work and they did get hit with the evil eye. But does the Quran say that? No.

00:46:58--> 00:47:30

But there's another you know, he thought that he mentioned this. Another way of looking at it is it didn't work meaning had they gone this way or not. That wouldn't have protected them from the evil eye. That would be another way of looking at that same either. It didn't benefit it wasn't going to benefit them for making them independent of ally in any way shape or form. What am I the halloumi hater, hater. Boom. Makana Yoni antamina Let me share with me a new cell Orion and the Quran did not explicitly mentioned Allah and no masaba to malign that evil I actually did hit them for love with dunya kunafa cobia Hoshi

00:47:31--> 00:47:32

let me attack.

00:47:33--> 00:47:46

There must be something else in your kobs heart that didn't materialize. That is being referred to not the evil eye in his opinion. It's probably something else. It's not about the evil eye. Now. What is it?

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

How much of Cyril? Oh fuck did I

00:47:51--> 00:48:16

I mean, I missed something well job I'm manakala hallmarking unbabel matahari. And the response that my what he has recorded from some of the later scholarship loyalty, it doesn't add up you know, that's opinion that the king was jealous of them. He's saying that doesn't add up much either. The announcers demeanor Indra, Malik, Mamata, Holloman, bobbin Whitehead, Eau de Holloman Obama for Rico, because they're gonna go in front of the king, whether they come from different gates or one gate.

00:48:18--> 00:48:38

So if the king is jealous of them, then them coming from different doors don't help because they're gonna end up at the king's palace anyway. So it doesn't really add up. Formative 00 Fuck the liar. Then what's the most appropriate interpretation the most suitable interpretation of the ayah? could I say? The most structure for jacoba? Hey, Sam abna. Who and Misra

00:48:39--> 00:48:45

arafa and a nurse? Yep, so do no harm in Cali. But will you me no harm in Kolkata.

00:48:46--> 00:49:08

When Yahuwah is scoped out his son's coming from Egypt, meaning when they went to Egypt, the first time they were going into an unknown they've never gone there before. Right? They don't know what they're walking into. They don't know what that kid is gonna be like, they don't know if he's just or they're hoping they can get food they've heard, but there's no verifiable sources, right? So they're just gonna go figure this out themselves.

00:49:09--> 00:49:36

He came to know that people are heading towards Egypt from every country, every village and they are finding they're finding safety. In from every road, they are finding that they're heading towards Egypt. So now when they came back, Jacobo is actually figuring out that Egypt is becoming not just the Center for our hopes, but the hopes of the entire region. When I see my either unmatted Gemma tilcon Arabi

00:49:37--> 00:49:59

for hotel lobby ballyhale Allah use of UEFI missile a few cola fill in us. And if it's the case that god you know, groups are universally gathering at this one place to converge. That if the thought may have occurred to you or the salami in his heart somewhere that maybe if people are starving and everybody's starving, heading to Egypt, if

00:50:00--> 00:50:26

Use of is still alive. And he's starving. He must have to Egypt to He must be heading to Egypt because he doesn't know what happened to you so right. He doesn't know if he's dead or alive but if he is alive since everybody's going to Egypt, then maybe use of his heading to Egypt, Foucault affiliated us among the caravans of people maybe he's on one of them for our other have now and yet afara COVID Medina so he wanted his sons to spread out in the city.

00:50:28--> 00:50:54

Now listen for in Ghana use of the halacha and if you so did, in fact, enter the city for the Allah homeopathy funa Allah he maybe they'll stumble upon him. Oh, yeah, they do not relax, buddy, he or maybe they will lead it lead them to find out something about them. Not that they went to for that purpose. By the way, I'll come to the explanation of this view later. I'm just going to let him let you let this sink in a little bit. And then we'll ask some critical questions of this future. Okay.

00:50:55--> 00:51:01

Well, we are and Ibrahim and nothing and they are COVID Islam Allah Malika, and it's been narrated from Ibrahima nahi.

00:51:02--> 00:51:10

Allah then jacoba salam said Carla Delica Leanna who can help you and euro use of profit of Iraq?

00:51:11--> 00:51:41

Because he was hoping that they might end up seeing use of by going through different doors. What do I ignore behind him and Ibrahim and nothing if he only he and even if he had hurt him, right narrates from Abraham and nahi in his statement in his comment, Terry on go from different doors on I Lima and now who say Lt. What? He bounded above, he knew or he felt that he knew that he will that he will meet one of his brothers and one of the gates and useful run into his brothers and one of the gates.

00:51:42--> 00:51:46

Well, how old are you? fasudil Allah hota hai La ilaha jetten Phoenix co jacoba.

00:51:48--> 00:51:58

And this explains the statement of Allah. This was a need inside of apple. What was the need? If my son is still alive? Maybe they'll run into him.

00:51:59--> 00:52:35

Maybe they'll run into Fallujah to hear Maha Talabani, even Masada to use of data for Rafi Medina, the need was what came into his heart of them stumbling upon use of Chansik upon use of a salon when they diversify themselves in the city when I can economic Nisha, but that didn't help at all that didn't benefit at all. So in the home, let me use of it but people have gotten so they didn't meet use of in the streets of Egypt or Mahalia and it's different areas for you. So for Aziza, Mr. Because you serve as the Minister of Egypt, which tomorrow behave in Marathi Lula, and they've already gathered in front of him in the first time. Where are they he doesn't look cool. dama de

00:52:35--> 00:53:12

Mistura, and they come to see him every time they enter us. It will like you know, Assad will Omri the muscle hatikvah. However, this is the last thing I'll explain. However, he kept this a secret meaning he didn't tell them go look for usage right. Because of a because of some some rationale that he understood. He doesn't doctor doesn't spell out what the rationale was. How am I nd what law number so this is what I say along those the right opinion. That's Dr. Calm, thank you so much. You can take the screen off. Now I'll talk to you guys. This is beautiful. Because as a dimension that I didn't talk to you about before about this part of the story. Here's a father, who's lost his son so

00:53:12--> 00:53:49

many years ago, not knowing what happened to him. And not knowing is more difficult than knowing that he died. He doesn't know it. So somewhere in him that hope and that terror is still alive. What's the hope he's okay. He's okay somewhere. What's the terror? He's being tortured somewhere? He's in great pain somewhere. He's being oppressed somewhere. Right? And he doesn't know what the situation is. Look, if you get separated from your family for a couple of hours, and they don't have the phone service isn't working. And you don't know. You know, whether they're okay or not. And the weather is getting worse. And it's starting to rain starting to get freezing cold. And they're not

00:53:49--> 00:54:23

by the car. They're like, I need to go look for them here. I need to go look for them it Should I just stay here. Should I go? there? What are they thinking? What could they be? What they may feel? Are they hurt or this? There's like 50 thoughts in your head? Because you don't know not knowing is torture. And we've been many of us have been in that situation for 10 minutes. 20 minutes, an hour, two hours. Can you imagine being in that situation for a day? A whole day? What happens when a family members out of touch and then they come back and you know they come back home safe and sound? What was your reaction? Oh, you're okay. That's good. I'll go back to my PlayStation for now. No.

00:54:25--> 00:54:26

I was really sick.

00:54:28--> 00:54:46

You didn't have your phone? What do you mean, there was no service, you'd lose your mind? Because you don't know what's happened. Now, that's when you hold adults responsible. Right now husband can lose it over his wife. She disappeared for hours or has been disappeared for hours. Right? We're talking about a child disappearing.

00:54:47--> 00:54:59

And that too, for ages. That pain never left jacobellis and the need to know I need to find some connection to use of somewhere somehow is still there. Now.

00:55:00--> 00:55:11

I'll add to what Dr. krim said, This is not my own edition, you don't have to accept it at all. I do find this rationale compelling. I want to add to it, in what I can understand a lot.

00:55:13--> 00:55:36

First of all, you need to I see it as jacobellis is a loving father to use of, and he's a loving father to all of his children. as complicated as hard as it is to love these guys, he's the loves them. So telling them to go from different doors to be safer, or to not get the eyes of people that will intend harm on them, or go back and rob them, which I talked to you about in the last session is still rational.

00:55:37--> 00:56:05

And him telling his sons, look, I can't benefit you from a loss plan in any way. The verdict is with a law, it's still about them. But sometimes you can tell someone to do something, and it has a dual purpose. You're telling them something that will benefit them. But hey, there's another underlying benefit. But that benefit doesn't have to be spelled out because the last time you guys were together with my boy use of that wasn't good for you so.

00:56:06--> 00:56:42

So I don't want all of you together to chance upon yourself. I want you to break up. So even if first of all more chances of running into you so but even if you run into us of it's not going to be all of you that run into him that can overpower him, it's going to be one or two of you, because I don't know what your feelings are towards you. So I don't know if you still hate him. I don't know if you see me why we should have finished it the first time. This time, we'll make sure we get it done. I don't know if that's gone away from you. Right. And especially because after Yusuf left, we learned in the Quran, that the attack their hatred, and their their aggression was redirected

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

towards Binyamin, which means that even the first one they're not over a mass use of 2.0. So what if the use of 1.0 man that's not solved yet either. Because they're the ones who came up with optimal use of right. And they you know,

00:56:58--> 00:57:40

the the unified on that jacoba Islam is wise to understand also that perhaps if they are all together, a group mentality turns you into a mob. But if they're broken up and run into user race out, they might be more rational, the one or two that run into him might have a softer heart, and they might not give in to the larger pressure because they can't give into that larger pressure. Now, there's another rationale. The other reasoning is, this time, they have been mean with them. And they have a reason to keep Binyamin safe, right, and they have a reason to keep Binyamin safe, not just this year, every single year, because they're not going to get okay. And if Binyamin is

00:57:40--> 00:58:19

safe, guaranteed, and they run into you so they can't kill you. So they can't hurt you. So because who will testify who will tell dad what they did, when you invoke because he's already under insurance. He's already saved this trip, he has someone on this journey that he can absolutely trust the younger son. Right. So and that is that becomes kind of a witness against them. Like Nowadays, people talk about police in the body cam, right, the younger son is a body cam this time possibly. So even if they run into use of use of will be safe, because of Binya means presence because his safety is guaranteed, you understand? Then the question arises, why not just tell his sons? Well,

00:58:19--> 00:58:27

you know, look for users? Well, there are two obvious reasons why would he want the people who did did away with you. So have to look for yourself at this occasion at this point.

00:58:29--> 00:59:06

And second of all, right now, if he says go look for use of two, they'd say this old man has lost his mind. Remember in another movie, he's crazy. He wants us to go from different doors. So we can make use of that, can you just speak sense for them? They would dismiss this advice. They wouldn't listen to him if he brought up what you said, You know, sometimes, you have to understand the psychology of your children, your family members, and you if you want to convince them to do something, you better know what to say. And you better really know what not to say. Because some of your kids, just because you said a certain word. They said now I won't do it. I was gonna do it. But

00:59:06--> 00:59:24

since you brought that up, now I won't do it. I don't care how much trouble I get into. I will not do it. Right. So if you say certain words, it triggers them to want to become disobedient. What's the trigger that angers these young men? Use mention? Why would the wise father mentioned use of by name?

00:59:25--> 00:59:33

He would not. And he's already agitated them I mentioned the use of in this conversation when he said I should trust you with you, you know, when you mean like I trusted you with user

00:59:35--> 00:59:59

hasn't already come up in an aggressive context. So he's not mentioning that. So he's getting them to go from different doors for their own benefit. But as hard as not let go of the need to maybe chance upon your use of again. And it's the most logical profound thing. Why? Think about this. If you suffer is alive, he's out. He's not in this town. He's not in the town in cannon because if he wasn't gonna

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

I would have found him. He's in some other village, some other cities, some other country, I don't know where there's no way to engage in an investigation of all those places. But Allah has made a plan where all those places are starving. And people from all those places are converging. We're in Egypt. So even if we don't run into user will might run into, you know what's called degrees of separation, we might run into someone with one degree of separation from this of somebody might come up to these guys and say, Hey, you look like a lot like my best friend yourself. You guys related. It could happen. Or it could be are you guys from Canada, I know someone from Canada. could that

01:00:40--> 01:01:22

happen? Like just that mentioned might happen, and it might lead to an actual investigation and the actual clue to find use of Elisa, this is the best shot he'll get. And it's so powerful, that iacobelli salam, as sad as he is for the loss of use of Islam, as broken up as he is, he will do anything he can, whatever's in his capacity to try to reunite and there's multiple purposes, he's not hurting his, you know, his sons, the sons that have gone the wrong way. But even though they have some good in them, they're providing for the family, they're taking responsibility. They're not entirely evil, but they have that evil streak in them of that jealousy they had, he's not going to

01:01:22--> 01:01:42

provoke that jealousy, and get them to do something good without them realizing it. And in that is a profound wisdom that we learn from jacobellis. Sometimes you have difficult members in your family. And you can get them to do good things, good things that they otherwise don't want to do.

01:01:43--> 01:01:45

You just don't let them know that they're doing this.

01:01:46--> 01:02:10

You're just giving them advice that's got to do perhaps it benefits them. But they would hate it. If it benefits somebody else. You don't people like that, right? So you give them advice that benefits them. But you have to code it in a way that it will end up benefiting someone else without them getting wind of it. Because if they find out that it benefits someone else, they'll say, forget it, I don't want to benefit. Because if I benefit, they'll benefit and it hurts me when they benefit.

01:02:11--> 01:02:12

So I'm not doing it.

01:02:13--> 01:02:34

And he's a he, you know, you would call it a psychologist nowadays, he understands their psyche, and what triggers them on what makes them aggressive and uncooperative. And he crafted this beautiful advice to them about coming from different doors, that addresses their safety concerns that may address the evil eye that also addresses the hope of a father who's lost a loved beloved son.

01:02:35--> 01:03:08

He's got all of that packaged in and by the way, later on, it's going to open up he's actually going to have the courage to say go look for use of an his brother. But well, we'll see why that change happened. He's gonna say that later on in the story. Right. So we're, we're in this really beautiful part of the story of use of honey. So now, I'm going to say some last comments is, I don't know if I should do this. Should I do this? Everybody say should I do this? Okay, well, you know, this weekend, I said, you know, I'm away. I wasn't able to get further I was traveling. And while I was traveling,

01:03:09--> 01:03:10

I'm gonna show you something.

01:03:11--> 01:03:22

For sure you guys. You know, I need sometimes just fresh air to think and contemplate and stuff. So before I should tell you what I was contemplating about. I'll show you my contemplation process.

01:03:23--> 01:03:25

So hold on.

01:03:26--> 01:03:27

It's coming.

01:03:31--> 01:03:34

You ready for this guys? Okay, this is how I contemplate

01:03:37--> 01:03:40

with my kids. Oh, no, it's choppy.

01:03:42--> 01:03:42

Okay, opened up.

01:03:44--> 01:03:45

You see that? See that?

01:03:47--> 01:03:48

That's me

01:03:50--> 01:03:51

getting some fresh air.

01:03:53--> 01:03:58

But anyway, while I was doing that this weekend, watch what's gonna happen this crazy.

01:04:00--> 01:04:02

That's what you call getting serious air.

01:04:05--> 01:04:17

I'll let you I'll let you take it in. I'll let you take it in. You know why it's paused because I cry like a baby. That's why it's muted. I'm not gonna, I'll do the sound effects. I'm not scared at all. Who's easy? Oh, my God, I could do this like without the row.

01:04:18--> 01:04:21

Okay, so, Alright, that's enough.

01:04:23--> 01:04:25

Okay, take it away.

01:04:28--> 01:04:29

So here's what I want to tell you.

01:04:30--> 01:04:53

We have gone through many scenes in the story of Yusuf Ali Sam. Yeah. And we're in this when you could consider the last scene because there was you know, there was him separated from his family in the beginning. And now we're seeing the process by which he's reuniting with his family. It started, that process has begun. It's not a one step thing. It's a multiple step thing, but the process has begun.

01:04:54--> 01:04:56

We saw him end up in Egypt

01:04:57--> 01:04:59

and end up in a lot of trouble. And we've seen

01:05:00--> 01:05:38

We've seen that that allegation that was made against him has been resolved. We've seen that he was thrown in prison. We've seen him also come out of prison. We've seen him start off as a slave and end up as a minister. So we've seen lots of different scenes and scenarios in which use of it Sam finds himself. Yeah. What's remarkable is this last, you can call it the last episode, the reunification of the family. This would be the what we're reading now is the reunification of his family has just started. Right. And it's going to go on. And this started this. What's interesting to me is this reunification started in

01:05:39--> 01:05:40

i a number.

01:05:44--> 01:05:44

Oh, my God.

01:05:47--> 01:06:01

58. We're on 68. Now, yeah, this is the story of they came, he recognized them. They didn't recognize him started ID number 58. And this reunification story will continue until

01:06:03--> 01:06:41

101 58. To 101. Now we've gone through lots of different scenes. Yes, him as a child him into well, him in Egypt, him with the minister's wife, him in prison, then him the dream interpretation, then him out of prison. We've gone through tons of scenes. But all of those scenes combined 57 shots, all of them combined 57 yards. And this scene of him reuniting with his family is number 58. All the way to one on 150 to 143 iaat are on this one scene.

01:06:42--> 01:06:55

Right? It's kind of that if you were to title this large scene, it's the reunification of the family. Right, that's what this is. But this one scene is the largest described scene in the entire story.

01:06:56--> 01:07:20

He spent years in prison, it got a few hours, he spent years in Egypt and got a few shots. He spent, you know, his time as a minister seven years as a minister and got a few shots, when he's solving the problem that the economic crisis. He's reunified is reunifying with his family, it's got 42 shots, 43 shots, some remarkable changes in it.

01:07:21--> 01:07:57

Because if you go by this logic, each one of those sections would have been 20 3040 yards. And the surah would be seven, eight times bigger than it is now. Or they should be as brief as the others. But this one scene Allah decided to really open up. Unlike all the others, there's an expansion that's happened because you would think from a story point of view, everything's been solved, the only thing left is the family hasn't reunited, right. And since everything solved in such rapid succession, this last part is just going to get finished, and that the story is over. But you're only in it number 68. And we've been discussing this reunification for some time now since 58. And

01:07:57--> 01:08:13

we're going to keep discussing it until we get to what 101 there's a lot here. So by the time we get to the end, it'll dawn on us Why did Allah take this one part of the story and emphasize it in a way like no other part has been stressed.

01:08:15--> 01:08:29

No other part has been stressed in the way that this has been stressed. I don't want to break the surprise for you. But I'll give you a clue because you guys Mashallah You're so Islamic. You don't watch movies and stuff. So what happens sometimes is, there's movie it's cool, but the epic part is the last scene.

01:08:31--> 01:09:06

And the last scene itself has a lot of tension and release and tension and release and tension and release the final fight, right? You were in the last scene, and there's a lot of tension in the scene and then release and then tension and then release. He sees them then he lets them go. He keeps it inside and the jacoba sounds like listening and then they're gonna come with his brother and then it's gonna keep on pulling and pushing and pulling and pushing in. That's where we are now in that that last powerful scene. So I pray Allah azza wa jal gives us an appreciation of the beauty of this lat last episode that we are in that's not short, by any stretch of the imagination, and

01:09:06--> 01:09:26

that we can draw from it's something that benefits all of us in a way that will be pleasing to Allah azza wa jal. Tomorrow, I'm going to have a session with Chef sohaib on opinions of the early scholars and the differences and how do we think about that? And then also, we'll try to continue a little bit with the story about a calamity welcome Phil Khurana Hakeem whenever anyone here can be it with the Santa Monica
