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

Let me assure you of watching

00:00:05--> 00:00:12

while I'm fast sonatina boom in Nila god how you to find out how

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

to

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

do

00:00:18--> 00:00:24

all huhtala he in neckla Fie bada he can are the

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

rubbish at least sorry we said the Emily was no Dr. Melissa Nia Kohli from hamdulillah salat wa salam, O Allah, Allah, Allah Allah He was a huge man in America and once again everybody sort of Monaco Monaco tonight Hello Ricardo

00:00:38--> 00:01:22

I attempt this evening to present to you lessons that I've come to learn from is number 94 and 95 of solute use of these are the IOD where now the scene has changed the last time that we had our session and talking about it number 93. We were in Egypt and Yusuf Islam was telling his brothers take this shirt of mine, and you know, cast it on the face of my father. Now, meanwhile, all the way back in canon in canon, where Jacob is where jacoba de Salaam is we find him speaking. So first let me translate both of these I art and then we'll discuss a little bit of analysis with them while I'm facilitating read and when the caravan took off separated, you can even say when the caravan

00:01:22--> 00:01:39

detached itself from the city on a boo home in Nila Judy her use of their father said there is no doubt about it is absolutely fine I'm finding the scent of use of or the wind which here represents scent of use of Lola and Tiffany Dune

00:01:40--> 00:02:11

had it not been and I'll translate literally for now not explained yet. Had it not been for the fact that you will consider me senile and senseless so there's a strange had it not been a we're gonna have to break down Carlota la he they said we don't know who they are right? Clearly not the brothers because they're still in Egypt. So Allah tala, he they said we swear to God in that kind of field one early Kadeem, no doubt about it, you certainly are in your old, your old confusion or your old delusion,

00:02:13--> 00:02:55

or your old misguidance. So that's these are the two items that we're going to look at today. The first thing that I think should be brought up is obviously, you know, the stories in the Quran, they move very quickly. Right. So you know, we have a few exchanges between the brothers. And this is a conversation happening in Egypt. And now all of a sudden split second, we are in the house of the Oba and he's saying I find use of scent, even you know, had it not been that you think I'm crazy. And all of that this exchange is happening. So for us, it's happening as a reciter is reciting. And we're listening. It's happening in a matter of seconds. But the important thing, let's start with

00:02:55--> 00:02:56

the word Fussel fool.

00:02:58--> 00:03:36

Because the Arabic the Arabic here doesn't say when the caravan arrived. So it's not you know, what am I a euro or a 30 euro or a volatility euro, there are other words that could have been used for the arrival of the caravan, because they've taken off from Egypt, they're making their way to cannon, whatever that distance is. Actually, I asked our study group to see if any biblical research exists on the, you know, because Bible scholars are really interested in maps and geographies and things like that, if they have any sort of distance mapping of you know, where the where canon was and were supposedly the government houses in Egypt, where at the time and what the distance may have

00:03:36--> 00:04:14

been. So they may have done some research on this stuff. Muslims have different takes on this among herbal fussy rune, it was a 30 day journey, it was you know, a certain number of units I forget the units they mentioned, or it was a three day journey so there's different variations of it but I wanted to it would be interesting to compare what is found in you know, biblical, scholarly research on the subject anyway, but regardless, that's that's a side issue. The point is, they're a pretty fault pretty far ways away. Right? And the word fossilized which is not not translating guys, when the caravan arrived, or when the caravan was approaching, actually fossil is used originally for

00:04:14--> 00:04:52

when the space between joints where you can distinguish that this was one bone and that's a separate bone. Like when you slaughter an animal, the the side of the space between the joints where the two bones meet together, that's actually called a fossil. And from it figuratively the idea of relieving somewhere like in sent off or the hub that kind of got associated with the word fossil, fossil is literally separation that may use a shape and lady like when something becomes distinct from itself. So let me give you the image of when a ship is loaded on the dock. It looks like it's part of the dock because it's connected, right, it's anchored and it's there stairs going through it. There's

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

these planks and stuff like that. So it's literally connected. And then when they lift the anchors and they lift the planks, it's it's doing philosophy

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

It's separating itself. So what used to look like one physical body entity and connected now it's separating. The imagery here is the trade caravan that came there is a loaded caravan of lots of people that came to Egypt. It wasn't just Yusuf and his brothers, it was the entire caravan that that they joined. And now that caravan is leaving back and it could also be that the use of a Nissan because now the truth has come out, they don't have to travel with a trade caravan. Maybe there's an official entourage of servants and security guards and, you know, things like that, that are now going with a procession all the way to receive jacobellis Alam, who is obviously the Prime

00:05:38--> 00:06:17

Minister's son or Prime Minister's father. So they're going to give him a royal welcome. And they're going to bring him back with this royal entourage. So it's a large group. And that's why the word is used. But the idea is Fossella means as they just left town, or as they just departed, you know, like, nowadays, obviously, we're not boarding ships much, but like on planes, when, when they lift the jet bridge, and they they disconnect the jet bridge, and they close the gate and the first movement of the plane before even it takes off. That would be the moment of fossil. So this is important because theoretically, they're weeks away from reaching cannon. But the moment the Gate

00:06:18--> 00:06:32

Bridge disconnected, the moment the caravan started moving. Here, you have hundreds of miles away, maybe more. Yeah, jacobellis. I'm saying it Neela God, her use of I'm finding use of scent.

00:06:33--> 00:07:14

Like he didn't find it when they were around the corner. Like, because you know, the ions are moving so fast. So you would think this happened? as they approach then he smelled it? And then this was said, and then NASA said, No, no, no, no. This is weeks before the caravan got there. He's already feeling the scent. He can smell the scent of use of anytime. And there's no mention of a shirt. He's just I can feel the scent of use of it. Neela Judy, her use of low use of Lola and Tiffany Dune. So that's the first thing that I wanted to bring to your attention. Before I get to the latter part, a little bit involved part of this ayah. I wanted to share with you some narrations about how this has

00:07:14--> 00:07:53

been explained. He finds the center of use of in classical literature in artifacts. There's even a hadith whose authenticity can be questioned. And it's clear that it's question because the you know, a huge number of our facilities generally didn't take this heady. They didn't accept it as part of their explanation, some data and many didn't. But I'll still cite it to you. So you're appreciative of what's been said to explain this phenomenon of him finding the win, and then I'll share some insights of my own or some thoughts of my own with you also. So let's start we'll call a majority. How about three one first for Suffolk County commies for hogfather hydraway Jana, Daniela tasa,

00:07:53--> 00:08:36

Latvia, Pooja Jana, Padma la Salama, who Lisa dunya mean regenerative economy, radical Camus. I mean some McCall in Isla Judy Hi, you so he says that this is actually a win that originates in heaven. This is my jarheads opinion, okay, this is a win or a cent that originates in heaven. And jacoba sam somehow knew that this scent that does not belong in this world, it comes from gender itself, it comes from heaven itself can only belong to that shirt. So somehow there's an association being made with the shirt and the scent that can only come from gender that doesn't belong in this world. And when he sent when he smelled that smell, he knew that that shirt is around which by association

00:08:36--> 00:08:59

meant that you sofas around and therefore he said I find that window and then obviously saying that needs more explanation. How can a shirt have the scent of the perfume of heaven of gender? So there's a that that week narration I was referring to let's talk about that. What I want why DB is not here and under 70 Malik, and why he narrates with his isnaad attributing to undisciplined Malik and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

attributing this to the Messenger of Allah Sosa them. And now Kyla makalu further if humblebee Tommy see has who Allah would he be at the basilar that when money the prophesy shalom was describing, take the shirt of mine cast it on my father's face he'll become he'll restore sight for England I'm rude. Al Jabbar Lama Altai Rahim Allah He said, I did not know

00:09:23--> 00:10:00

that Nimrod meaning the great king that claimed to be God in the time of Abraham, the great grandfather, when he cast him into the fire gibreel Gabriel descended on Abraham, Abraham, Allison become instrumental Jana was in the middle Jana, with cushioning seeding from heaven and a shirt from heaven. So he as he was being thrown in the fire, this hadith suggests that there's a shirt that was given to Ibrahima, listen by gibreel, and a cushion seeding or comfort, comfort and seeding by gibreel. Elisa to him delivered from Jenna while he's in the fire for Alba Holcomb, he so he dressed

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

him in the shirt meaning who put the shirt on Ibrahima de sel? Why did you attend fossa and he sat him on that comforted seating well kardama who you had the two who and he sat with him just having conversation with him for Casa Ibrahim alayhis. Salam Veliko camisa is help. Then Ibrahim alayhis salam put this shirt on his hockey passed it down to ice hockey basically is what it's saying. Okay. And he said I'm wakasa who is horrible jacoba and the same shirt was cut you know? He is Hawk adorn his son Jacobi. Did you put that shirt on? Yeah, we would have passed it out as a momento of the grandfather, the miraculous shirt that came from heaven. What Casa Who? Yaqoob use of and use of

00:10:40--> 00:11:17

yaku gave it to us for gyla houfy cassava Tim enfidha. So a piece of it it seems to suggest that a piece of it was put away in an amulet or some kind of a locket around the neck. So not the whole shirt but a piece of it was put inside a you know, locket and he had it. Well, I'd love to have you on up for OTF Phil job. So and he he hungered initially like a locket that he was wearing. And when he was thrown in the well welcome he soufiane up so the piece of that shirt was still on his neck, meaning the shirt they took was a regular shirt. But the piece of the shirt of Ibrahima, a slob was still in that locket that was on him

00:11:18--> 00:11:28

for danika cola who in humble Vietnamese he had that and that is the explanation of the words take the shirt of mine meaning he handed that piece of that shirt to give back

00:11:29--> 00:11:45

what the people and you call a no to Allah also Latika raha Illa II, other civilian hardened mergesort. And then it's been said that, you know that Allah granted the ability to smell that smell by a way of miracle, which we'll talk about in a minute.

00:11:47--> 00:12:29

And so this is basically One very common explanation of how this wind works and what its origin is. I hold my money in Allah Allah, Allah Allah He her use of Elisa Lam and then provide him with the tilma Well, my G work the rule when for a million mechanical Berry, no actually this Oh, hold off on let me explain the other white Why didn't most of us do not take this narration obviously, this the issue of authenticity. But the mama Lucy and others also raised another issue, which is in the language, there's no mention of the shirt. There's only mentioned of I find the scent of use of and if this is the center of Jana, then there's too many jumps when he says I find the scent of use of

00:12:29--> 00:12:42

then what he's saying is I find the scent of john now, which is on the remnant that belong to our father Ibrahim, which was passed down to me which I gave to you. So

00:12:43--> 00:13:08

there's a lot of gaps that we have to fill with this explanation. So he says there's too much unnecessary Sokoloff in explaining or you know, going out of the way to explain to fill in this, this alleged gap, but there doesn't have to be a gap. This is simply a lie as origin, merging the unseen world and the seen world and that's actually what I want to talk to you about the ship has left.

00:13:09--> 00:13:46

You know, Yahuwah a Salam is at home, you would think one explanation is because he's a prophet Allah revealed to him, Allah could reveal something to your heart, right? A lot gonna reveal something in your mind that luck could reveal something in a Prophet's dream. There are different modes of Revelation, this is very odd, compared to other modes of heavenly communication, he can feel this, he can smell the scent of use of like, it's highlighting one of the physical senses and connecting them to the spiritual world. You see, we there are two realities. As far as the Muslim is concerned, there's the physical reality which we perceive from our five senses. And there's the

00:13:46--> 00:14:21

unseen reality that contains jigs and it contains angels and it contains that heaven and hell and it contains the you know, the this descending from Allah azza wa jal, it just you know, it contains, you know, the, the angels rock documenting and the document on which they are writing, all of that's invisible to us, this is the world of the unseen, and the day a day will come where the unseen will become the scene, right? And that they everything that we do see is going to be flipped upside down. So when that becomes real, this will become unreal. You know, when that becomes visible, this will become invisible mountains will become invisible, the sky will become invisible, it will get torn

00:14:21--> 00:14:56

apart. But what we learn in pseudo is like this and stories like this in the Quran, they're dispersed in different places, is that from the unseen world, sometimes a lot impacts the scene reality physical reality for certain individuals, or in certain cases. And as you will see, what I'm more convinced of here is that this isn't necessarily a miracle granted to jacoba his ceram because of prophethood, though, it can be argued as such, but the latter part of the phrasing is going to make it clear I think, that this is actually a reference to

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

something that anybody would real face

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

All around him would have had access to they would have smelled it too. They would have had. Yeah, I smell that, like, give you an example from the profits time solace on them. Obviously, our messenger meets gibril Alice ROM on a regular basis, well, I'm coming down by way of Jubilee, Elisa Ram. So they're regularly seeing each other. And there are many times that, you know, camels are sinking into the ground, when kurata is coming, the province, I'm sweating on a freezing day, nobody else can see God. But he's seeing him. So he's having this direct access to the unseen world that we don't get. But then there are cases in which a man in the middle of a from the desert comes that

00:15:37--> 00:16:11

nobody's ever seen before. And he's wearing all white, and there's no signs of any travel or disheveled, you know, appearance on his face. After a long day of work. I look like I got hit by a truck. He's traveling through the desert, and he looks completely fresh. And there's not a drop of sand or a grain of sand on his clothes. And he's coming in asking him and then he leaves. And it turns out that happened that happened to be Gabriella Elisa. So what that means is even the Sahaba, in some cases had access to the unseen world, because they were in the proximity of Rasulullah sallallahu every time. So these two worlds, they do interact with each other. You don't have to

00:16:11--> 00:16:52

think that the unseen world will manifest itself. It's physics, it's chemistry, you know, it's biology is going to be something we wait for until Judgment Day. No, actually, it's the way that works sometimes intervenes, like the fire becoming cold. In the case of Ibrahim on the sun, in our physical world, it defies the laws of physics and laws of nature, etc. You know, as we understand them, and this isn't limited to profits, you find in the Quran, Allah describing the young people of the cave, and literally describing that sun rays that would have come in beamed in on their eyes, a love bent them away from them. I love bent this, the rays of this and they're nonprofits. So they're

00:16:52--> 00:17:32

receiving divine aid in ways that defies the physical senses, obviously, something that has a smell, a shirt that has a smell, even if it's got Cologne, or perfume on it, you know, if it's like 20 feet away from you, you can't smell it 10 feet away from you, you can't smell if it's in the room next door, you can't smell it. So the distance if it's two miles away, or 20 miles away, or 100 miles away is irrelevant. But a law makes it sometimes that you can actually physically be connected to the spiritual world, your your senses, your physical senses, are actually connected to that divine realm where Allah commanded the angels to deliver that sent over to the nostrils of use of, of

00:17:32--> 00:17:40

Yakuza. And he can, he can, he can smell it. Now, the interesting thing again, is, let's go a little deeper.

00:17:41--> 00:18:24

The interesting thing here is he didn't say I smell it. He said, I find it. He do it Neela he do. First of all, he's certain about it. Like it's like, is that? That smells like use of use when you use it just to smell like no, no, no. I am certain in me that I swear by it love. You do? I'm finding and it's not I found it. It smells like him like the past tense. No, the present tense, you know what that means? Imagine? Like, I'm gonna give you a weird psychedelic example. But I think it'll make sense to you. It's like, if you smell your favorite dish. Wait, is that? Is that what I think it is? Is that is that what mom's cooking. And then you as you step closer to the house, what

00:18:24--> 00:19:09

happens to the scent, it gets stronger right? Now, he's not going towards the scent, the scent is coming towards him. And he keeps finding it and he keeps finding it. You could you could dismiss it once you could dismiss it twice. He keeps on finding this sense of use of reason. And that's why the melodic you know, the leeloo analyst, Mr. The, the present tense indicates continuity. So the present tense being used in the luxury high use of is as if, oh, it's getting stronger, I keep finding it, I find it again, I'm picking up the scent of use of would be a figure to good English translation, actually, I keep picking up the scent of use of so he's, he can sense use of La salaams

00:19:10--> 00:19:26

life that He exists, that he's okay, that he's not covered in blood, because that would drown out the smell. It's also very interesting, literary, you know, continuity of imagery that so he pointed out and I love you for it. Say

00:19:28--> 00:19:35

you found use a jacobellis I'm being described with you know, footwork of theme that he was swallowing,

00:19:36--> 00:19:59

you know, and in the Quran in different places you describe, you find that people that are in distress are described with the tightness of chest. And when the prophets I send them had distress, unless it and I'm not sure, like I saw that I didn't we expand your chest for you. And the idea of the chest expanding is that you can breathe easy. And the word for breath is an E and the word for relief from Allah isn't over.

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

Which was which is what he told his sons. Don't lose hope in a row that comes from Allah. Don't lose hope in the relieving mercy and the care that comes from Allah. And from the same origin comes the word re, as if I can smell, I can. What's entering my lungs is the relief, the relieving scent of use of think of it this way when someone's inhaling smoke, or if they're close to a fire, like an actual building on fire, and they're inhaling the toxins that are now in the air, the ash that is in the air, their lungs are getting tighten their chest, they can't, their chest is getting uncomfortable. It's literally they can feel it in their heart when they're coughing. You can feel it

00:20:42--> 00:20:47

right here. Right. And when the when the fresh air comes in, there's an openness.

00:20:48--> 00:20:49

Some of you guys use like,

00:20:50--> 00:21:17

you know, like VIX type products, this is not an endorsement. But like if you have stuffy nose and stuff like that, there's certain kinds of aromas or certain kinds of sense when they go inside your nostrils. It opens everything up. It's like his in the spiritual in the emotional sense. His heart had been closed, tightened. And his heart was in so much distress, even though he's holding on to hope the tears are real. And all of a sudden, this smell comes and

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

the tears stop. And there's a smile on his face.

00:21:24--> 00:21:40

I can smell you. So this is the same man who was, you know what we have bought it now who for who I believe that his eyes turned white and as he was, as he kept on swallowing his sadness. Yeah, so far I use of all the grief I feel over you. So

00:21:42--> 00:21:42

I smell it.

00:21:44--> 00:21:56

It's getting stronger. And there's the the look on his face has changed. The tears have dried up. Allah has given this man alayhis salaam, Joy before the actual joy.

00:21:57--> 00:22:40

He hasn't seen his son, he hasn't seen a shirt. You know, none of that's happened. And he's already beginning to feel the relief. And this is a remarkable gift Eliza just gave to jacobellis. And perhaps in this, there's a lesson that no matter what kind of impossible distress a believer is feeling, Allah can send something in the wind, Allah can use any of your senses of luck and show you something in a dream. Allah can give you any kind of sign that the relief is coming, and you won't be able to scientifically convince anybody that that's the case, you will just know deep inside your heart that it's going to be okay. Like luck can give you something as a miraculous sign. That is not

00:22:40--> 00:23:21

for you to substantiate over anybody else. Now, let's take a quick pause here and talk about that notion. Are there such things as miraculous interventions from Allah, for Muslims, and for believers in general, I believe there are. They're called karma in our tradition, and there are stories of hundreds of 1000s of them, people having miraculous experiences of divine intervention and their life. But the thing that's really important to understand is, if that has happened to somebody, it happens because they demonstrate a remarkable connection to Allah, an incredible demonstration of patience and perseverance and commitment, bravery, they've made some kinds of great sacrifice, to

00:23:21--> 00:24:04

defy the seen world, in their loyalty to Allah. That's the consistent theme, people that the world was coming at them. And they were more concerned about the world they cannot see, the Lord they cannot see the authority, the love, they cannot see was a stronger love than the love of things that their eyes could see. The fear of the one they cannot see was greater than the fear of things that were in front of them. The draw of the promise of Allah was greater than any draw of any lust or any greed inside of them. Those people that demonstrated that Allah in many cases intervened, you know, miraculously for them, he opened up doors for them there are people like that that have that have

00:24:04--> 00:24:45

found Islam in the most miraculous ways in the because they turn to a Lions have Yala, the world is closing in on me. And I could become a person of this world but I want to stay loyal to you find me away, give me relief, and Allah will give them relief. But that I keep saying but and I don't finish that thought. But what but that's not for you to use on a YouTube video for yourself, this will happen and or that's not for you, you know, you know how many emails I get, and messages I get for many years about brother, I need to talk to you because I get miracles. And you need to add I have seen in my dream that you must take my miracles and spread them to the world.

00:24:46--> 00:24:58

Thank you. That's really cool, but people who experienced that they don't feel the need to broadcast it. They have such a deep intimate connection with Allah. They don't need the validation of broadcasting it to the world.

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

They

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

They don't have that. That's when you know that there's something wrong, that may not be spiritual, that might be psychological.

00:25:07--> 00:25:19

You know? And so there is a dimension of this, that's very, very real and the people who experience it, the thing about it is you could be as credible as jacobellis,

00:25:20--> 00:25:43

which he is. He's the grandson of Ibraheem alehissalaam he himself is the third line of prophets. He is himself a prophet and that is known. Allah Moomin Allah He might not Allah moon I know from Allah, which you do not know is also referenced as prophecy. So him being a prophet, and yet, look at the latter part of this phrase, Lola and Tiffany Dune. Had it not been that you people consider me crazy and senile.

00:25:44--> 00:25:45

In other words, his own family

00:25:47--> 00:25:54

considers him crazy when he says I can feel it. Oh, God, here he goes again with you so Oh, now he smells him. Oh, guys. He smells him now.

00:25:55--> 00:25:57

And Grandpa is so crazy.

00:25:58--> 00:26:41

This is how they are commenting on him. And you know what he says to them, Lola and to funny don't leave something off. Had it not been that you consider me senile? Had it not been that you consider me rambling? Perhaps a level of open your senses to it too? Because your your spiritual sinuses have to be unclogged, before your nostrils are unclogged. And you can smell this. There's something missing in your faith. You even knowing that he's a prophet, talk about him in this way. So why would Allah open this gift to you? Why would he give that to you? And even if they perhaps smelled it, because it's a scent. So he could smell it? And he could tell you, they may be going, what's

00:26:41--> 00:27:12

that scent? What's it smell? It's nice. And he says it's the it's the center of use of high Yeah, Mm hmm. Right. In other words, there are people who can be exposed to the miraculous signs from Allah. And because they are predisposed to be skeptical. There are they've already decided that that doesn't exist for them, or the science from Allah, they don't have any relevance or this person has no credibility. They've already dismissed you before they even heard you, then none of the good that was going to come your way you will have access to

00:27:13--> 00:27:38

that none of that good will have you will have access to so low loan to fund the dune, the hakuho Ola Lola and to fund the dune loader to moolah. Had you not had you not considered me insane, you would have found that sent to you would have just experienced a miracle from Allah. But you want to dismiss it and that's fine. So now on that note, what I want to share with you is important two important things.

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

The people that will dismiss you

00:27:45--> 00:27:51

more than anyone else in the morons, depiction of stories, his family,

00:27:53--> 00:28:02

the people that will like shortchange you or undermine you or even insult you, his family. And one of the lessons we're learning here

00:28:03--> 00:28:33

is that the brothers of use have forgotten they're in Egypt. But they have families, right? Remember use of said Bring your families. So where does your home live with the rest of the family? So their wives, their children? All of them are there? What is the role of a father, the role of a father is to model speech manners behavior for the son, or the daughter that they're supposed to model? What do you do when you face a crisis situation? When every time dad was in trouble he made to the car.

00:28:34--> 00:29:14

Every time this happened, he gives up our actions are teaching moments for our children. Our children are learning from us, even when we're not teaching them. They're learning how to eat. They're learning how to put their shoes on. They're learning how to sit in the car. They're learning how to make jokes. Some some parents, they have a habit of saying certain bad words, when they're on a phone call. You'll find your four year old saying the same bad words and you didn't sit and give them a lesson. You just emulating everything you do. Here's why I'm bringing that up. These brothers of use of artists that were in the habit of insulting dad, calling him crazy, calling him senile

00:29:14--> 00:29:20

calling him so it goes rambling again. Another lecture on another Islamic lecture great dad,

00:29:21--> 00:29:56

you know, they they're in the habit of talking to their father in this dismissive way. And guess what? They got married and their wives saw them talking to their father in this dismissive way. And they're got kids and these kids saw dad talk to grandpa in this dismissive way. And now they're gone. And the only ones left behind are wife and children. And when you when you're Cooper is a prophet says I can send this smell the sense of your sense of use of they're calling him crazy. It's not the sons, it's the sons families. Where did they get the license to do that? You pass bad behavior down.

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

You pass disrespect down.

00:30:01--> 00:30:34

That's the legacy they're leaving behind. You know what's crazy to me. They want in the beginning of the story. They wanted his love more than anything else. And what are they passing on to their children hate for Grandpa, resentment for grandpa. That's what they're passing down. The irony of it, the hypocrisy of it. So Lola on to funny Dune also suggested jacobellis around in this horrible situation where even when his sons aren't around to abuse him, the extended family is abusive towards him. He can't even express a moment of joy without people shutting him down.

00:30:35--> 00:30:57

people commenting and you know, the the, he's not pre empting assuming they're going to call him crazy. They've done it enough times for him to know what their reaction is going to be so even before they say something, he said Lola to finally do let me talk to you about finance because it's not it's a rare, if not isolated occurrence in the Quran. Fingal Jebel a Shem raha Aleem amin who unfold hostage men who

00:30:58--> 00:31:33

play tamina Jebel poulan, it's the when you know, there's mountains that have weird shapes. So when kids draw mountains, they're drawn like this right straight up, like it's a triangle. But sometimes mountains have an odd rock sticking out, like a, you know, like a bud sticking out, or a ledge sticking out all the way. And if there's an earthquake, that's the part that will crack and fall off, like that's the weak part of the mountain, because it's not secured by the rest of the shape of the mountain. Similarly, the word finance or finance or fund is used when the loss looming of a branch sticking out of the tree. Now the bark of the tree is strong, but the branch can be broken,

00:31:33--> 00:31:42

the bark can't be broken, but the branch can be broken. So the idea of fund or fin is something of value, but the common gentleman who something that can easily snap off,

00:31:43--> 00:32:09

easily turn off, its weak. Well, yes, amazonica bamboo, and that entails that it's weak. So the mountain is strong, but that ledge is we don't stand on that ledge. You know, sometimes when you go to tourist attractions, as they don't start on these roads, these are falling rocks. So you're standing on stable rock enough that they can build a resort on it. But there's some parts of the rock that'll just, that's the fun of it, or the thing of it. Okay, so caffeine in Japan, anyway.

00:32:10--> 00:32:47

So they say I'll find it I'll have I'll have it senility meaning the person stops using their senses properly, their mind becomes weak. They're not what they used to be, they used to be a mountain now they're that weak part of the, you know, What in God's will that actually mean and how dumb and because of old age when the mental faculties start becoming, you know, weaker and weaker, so your memory starts going away or you start having short term memory loss or you start rambling or you start acting like a child, so called you start molefi radial keyboard and it can be used for other than old age Also, while more funded by a Ferrari and mufon now the person who suffers from def need

00:32:47--> 00:33:29

is someone who's any on any issue they say the weakest things they say senseless things were in Canada we'll just me even if they were physically able, well, but if we'll just meet in Canada who said he didn't and it could also be someone who's physically incapable even if their sound of mind so either sound of mind and weak of body or weak of mind and sound of body all called the fleet. Well find that on Yahoo and to consider somebody else's statement or their opinion mufon net What does that mean? Ba who alarma who to consider it weak, senseless and to consider it blameworthy by Anadarko who was a Nazi had he? As if to explain how someone something's when something being said

00:33:29--> 00:34:06

by someone is crazy, and makes no logical sense. Lola and Tiffany goon well funded with Tariq al Khatib, and finally also means to a lie or a worthless statement. So qalamoun lucky Mata Allahu speech that has no value whatsoever. Well, Lola and Tiffany Dewan could mean based on what I've said so far, what could it mean? It could mean even though you think I'm an old man, that's just rambling. Even though you think I'm being childish when I speak like this, even though you think my comment my my speech doesn't make any sense? Yeah, center you get over it. Oh, man, he's dead. Like that speech that nobody should hear or pay and you just don't pay attention to him. He just keeps

00:34:06--> 00:34:10

talking. He's just having one of those moments. qalamoun lucky mattala who

00:34:12--> 00:34:50

were well funded who cares about who so to consider somebody a liar or to consider somebody you know, rambling woman hold you back the gentleman shaman who just just he just he avocado and Finn and Phil Carla Haydar if I'm in LA or Philadelphia region as of now then you have to Lou, you have to abandon a furry pet masala Muslim moon and in the besides alum of Northern Africa than a failure caused by the failure for audible. So this is just additional commentary on the word finned meaning it refers to something partial, he's only a remnant of what he used to be. He's not as old he's a shell of what it used to be. He's not that person anymore. He doesn't deserve respect that man who

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

deserved respect died a long time ago. This is just a you know, the the shadow empty shadow or empty shell of him. And that's also kind of implied inside.

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

funding.

00:35:02--> 00:35:15

After that dahar they use the word for when time whether something away, shaken muffin net, and the old man whose muffin nut is when his none no thing that he says makes any sense. Now why did I take so much time to describe this?

00:35:16--> 00:35:22

You know this this expression, because I wanted to illustrate to you the iron.

00:35:24--> 00:36:13

You've got a lot delivering a scent, to bring relief to the heart of use of are they set up from the Royal halls of Egypt, to this hut in cannon out of the VIP treatment, Allah is giving jacoba a Salam. So as far as Allah is concerned, Yaakov Allah Salam is worthy of angels delivering the sense so he can feel relief. That's the kind of VIP he is. And yet while that is happening, people around him consider him and the things he says worthless. And you see the irony, how high Allah has honored him, and how low he is considered by the people around him, all at the same time. This is yet another example in the Quran of the definition of human value.

00:36:14--> 00:36:40

Allah gave human beings value. People take value away from you. People dismiss you or devalue you. And no matter how much people devalue you, when your relationship with Allah stays strong bonded, then it doesn't matter what you call me. It doesn't matter how you think of me. I honor my robe and my Rob has honored me.

00:36:41--> 00:36:50

And I have the that honor lives inside me. Regardless of your words. When my connection with a law becomes weak,

00:36:51--> 00:37:08

then sometimes humiliation comes my way. And when humiliation comes my way, maybe alleged reminding me You need to find your honor again, but don't look for it in people. Go find it with me. National common as in Allah Houben Islam.

00:37:09--> 00:37:12

We're in IP design and examine ready. As Allen Allah

00:37:13--> 00:37:23

said, We are a people. Allah gave us honor by our surrender to Him by Islam. And if we seek honor and dignity in anything else a level humiliate us.

00:37:24--> 00:38:00

jacobellis Rob is not looking for respect or validation from his family, from the people who humiliate him, he has that from a law's origin. It still hurts him when he when they do that, but they can't take his honor away. They can't take his dignity, they can hurt him. It was still human, it's still gonna hurt. But you won't internalize that if they think I'm worthless, therefore I am worthless. If they think I'm crazy, therefore I'm crazy. If they think I'm wrong, therefore I'm wrong. Because you know, when people say that to you over and over again, you start internalizing it and accepting that for yourself. No, no, no, he You can call me all the crazy you want. I know my ob

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

has sent me the center of use of in Nila RG D, her use of lowlander fornito.

00:38:06--> 00:38:07

So

00:38:08--> 00:38:24

now we come to this response of theirs. How did they respond to and you know, I should have emphasized this a little bit more before I go on Sorry, I'll take a moment to do that. We have to be really careful what example we set for our children.

00:38:25--> 00:38:41

And sometimes we have conflict. Sometimes a husband doesn't like a wife, or, you know, brothers don't like each other or whatever. And you find joy when you use your children to insult them, or to undermine them.

00:38:42--> 00:39:00

Or when a mother trains her, her kids to listen to her. But when dad says something, dismiss it and every time they dismiss him, she feels a little victory inside or vice versa the father makes it puts the mother down so much that the kids are in the habit of dismissing the mother.

00:39:01--> 00:39:12

Your disagreement with your wife, your disagreement with your husband, or ex wife or ex husband, your disagreement with any family. Don't use children as pawns to play your game.

00:39:13--> 00:39:53

It's disgusting. And you know why I'm saying that because it's a reality. When children are used that way, when they're manipulated That way, when hatred is sewed into them that was shaped and molded into you. So you want to make sure you pass that on as an inheritance. Look at use of Allison, what's he doing? He knows that the wrong the actual wrong has been done by the brothers. So he says I want to meet all the family he's not holding anything against the family. Right? But look at what happens in our families look at what happens in the society around us whether they're Muslim or other people of Quran. But this is a reality people use others to, you know, and in especially

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

children. You could be feeding children clothing them giving them schooling, but if you're instilling these poisonous manners in them, you are

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

poisoning them. You are infecting them with a virus, you are destroying their lives, you are destroying their character. What kind of adults are they going to grow up to be when you're poisoning their sense of right and wrong, the sense of respect. You don't respect someone therefore you're teaching them to disrespect. That's what they did with no Halesowen people used to disrespect him and then they used to raise their kids to come and bring it disrespect him

00:40:21--> 00:41:04

you know now that was passed down. What do we that's a real danger to pass down, dismissive, disrespectful behavior to pass down spite to pass down you know, these ugly qualities that are the furthest things from a Muslim. This this Deen, you know, it needs to rise to you know, Leo, tell me Mama Karim Allah Allah Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam our beloved says, I was sent so I can so I can perfect the most noble manners. Does that look like noble noble manners in the name of family feuds? Because this is a Family Feud at the end of the day. Right? There's a reason this has been brought up. And even it can get so bad that they don't even realize they're talking to a prophet.

00:41:05--> 00:41:13

Their kids are being raised making fun of a prophet Muslim kids in the house of a prophet and they're doing that isn't that wild?

00:41:14--> 00:41:56

And they won't stop. They won't stop. So you know, you read this next I call this a de la he in neckla Fie, polical. Kadeem, we swear to God, Ah, that's been passed down to because the last few times we wrote the line, it was the brothers who said it. And now the family's using the law he in the same dismissive way that they used it, even that's been passed on. That's crazy. In other words, not only is religion passed down from generations, if you are engaged in the abuse of religion, the misuse of religion, the misuse of the name of Allah, then that's passed down to just like when you are being judgmental of someone or you're shaming someone you see a stuff

00:41:58--> 00:42:09

I still feel alone means I see a lot of forgiveness and stuff through Allah is not an Islamic slap on someone's face. But when you pass that on, and your 10 year old goes up stuff that ally you guys.

00:42:12--> 00:42:52

That's the furthest thing from manners, it's Islamic words. But it's more like an Islamic corpse with no soul inside that's, it looks like religious words that has no soul. That's not what this religion is. So look at the even the beginning to like when we swear to God, remember I told you ties us with a law in the most extreme cases. And you know what's even more crazy to me that it just dawned on me. The law is occurrence in the Quran. Historically, the first use of the law he, as recorded in the Quran, at least in its citations, is Ibrahima Nisa, their great grandfather use this word when he was frustrated against idols de la isla de nada sama con man, you should have respect

00:42:52--> 00:42:54

for your grandfather and what do you use this for?

00:42:56--> 00:42:58

And his great loyalty to Allah

00:42:59--> 00:43:16

and you are your honor to be in his household, to honor your your to honor our father and our grandfather. And you know, our parents honor is already something sacred in the religion you don't have to be a prophet to be deserving of respect, even if it wasn't a prophet to talk to him this way was way out of line way out.

00:43:17--> 00:44:09

And then on top of all of that, too true for you to talk to a prophet this way and then say what in neckla Fie, abahlali Kalka Diem, you are still lost in your old delusion, your ancient delusion. You know, you have to go several decades back a couple of decades back when those men were young, the brothers of use of the sons of Jaco the sons of Jacob were young. What did they say? They used to for a hoo hoo, ha. Bula Bina Minda wanna know Ozma in Luffy, la la la movie our dad use of and his brother are more are dear to dad, then we are. Our dad is clearly lost in confusion. He's clearly openly it's very obvious that he's a lost cause. And now a next generation using the same insult

00:44:10--> 00:44:25

the same Can you see feel the pain of that, that the jacobellis lamb heard these things? And you know, it's actually gotten worse because they used to say this behind his back. The first reference of it was behind his back. Now they're saying it his face.

00:44:26--> 00:44:59

So instead of things getting better, things are getting worse. So what we're learning then is if a bad mannerism isn't addressed in a generation, it won't be the same bad mannerism. It'll mutate and metastasize and it will be much, much bigger. It will be far worse. They were at least they weren't speaking to him in his face in that way. But now, even as kids just directly, you're in your old confusion. In other words, that confusion has been something that's been talked about and the parents have, you know, the sons have taught there that there's

00:45:00--> 00:45:11

The sons of Jaco have taught their own children. That dad was confused about this and he just went crazy and he doesn't believe us and he's just law and they've taught the lie they pass the lie down. Did this a lot of family history is a lie.

00:45:12--> 00:45:52

And in all of that, they validate that the father must be the Grandpa Grandpa must be crazy in necrophilia radical khadim So let's talk a little bit about the commentary of them. fasudil on this leopard pilu Kelly is patatas is a bullet here means insanity. You're in your old craziness, so but I'm not just misguidance are being lost or diluted. You're insane. Look on our Lou Kalimantan learning letter nihonga Nicola hi Miss lonely Miss Lee Alisha Qatada says they've said something so filthy so vile that it's not appropriate for the likes of them to be seeing to the likes of him or they saw them well alone call Danica even knew him and not and they probably said that because they

00:45:52--> 00:46:13

were so convinced that after they dropped him in the well that he was in fact that he left him for dead are Lucy ala fiza hobby can give them unbelief. latifi Mahabharata use of when exactly musically he was in the car, he was really, he was really he fee, the tama Cooney, he he Lita makueni. He was a woman and he, in other words,

00:46:14--> 00:46:51

man, when will you realize that that's over when you are so drowned in user fee when you are in your old delusion? It's like you're you're drowning, and you can't get out of that, you know, fake reality, or use of realism is still alive. You love him too much to accept the facts. McCartan says that the word banal here means a shocker. Well, I know distress and misery. you're citing from fi you know, in Malmo, tokina. Ebola in Warsaw, another cylinder Quran misguidance is associated with misery. You're in your old misery, you're making yourself miserable.

00:46:52--> 00:47:34

Why are you torturing yourself? You know that that's the other physiological condition. Even I should have Milan Alberto musella aka Mr. Milan fit the liberal theater de Lucia immediately. You are still barking up the wrong tree, you're still going up that road? That's a dead end, can you stop he's come to your senses. You know. So even when the sons are gone, and they were angry at him, and they had that outburst towards him, you can also now imagine when they had that outburst, when he says I'm only complaining to Allah, I'm not taking my my pain to you. I'm taking it to Allah, then maybe the other kids were listening, other family was listening. And when they're gone, and he

00:47:34--> 00:48:13

says, I sent to the center of you, I sense the center of use of that now there's their back, you're still confused. our parents, our dad didn't teach you enough. He didn't straighten you out yet. Okay, it's like that with him. What this also teaches us is that Allah will bring relief. But you have to understand that your closeness to Allah does not mean and that Allah has honored you does not mean that the people around you will honor you. You can be in a very hostile situation for a very long time. This is a law also acknowledging the reality of emotional and psychological abuse and torment.

00:48:14--> 00:48:52

You know, which is different from physical abuse, your overlay Salaam is living in torment, and one of his torments is that he lost his children, the other and most important to us, but the other tournament is that he is surrounded by these kinds of people that talk to him in this way. The both of these are, you know, pretty terrible torments on their own. But this is a combination of both of them that he lives in, and he's one of the most beloved slaves of Allah. What that means that is Allah doesn't hate you if you find yourself in that kind of a hostile environment. That's not why you're in that environment. That is not the position of your obelisk.

00:48:54--> 00:49:09

Allah will give him a level send him to sent this Li which it may be that all of us have already set up. Last thing I'll share with you because inshallah in the next ayah all of this is going to come to pass and by the way, this this seems like okay, check this out.

00:49:11--> 00:49:51

He said, You know, he said he finds the center they said your last quick I at one facility rucola boohooman nila Judy how you sufa Lola and to funny dude Carlota LA LA LA LA County. Done. Next fella Angela Alba Sheila tomorrow inshallah. When the when the giver of good news came. You know what? That sounds like? split seconds. It just happened. No, no, no, no, no. Remember, the caravan just left when this conversation started. And every step the caravan takes the scent gets stronger and he can't help but be feel the joy. The man who's been crying all these years is getting happier and happier before the caravan is already there. And when people's he's in a good mood, hi. I can send

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

you It's okay. You can call me crazy. That's fine. You can do that. All right. And that abuse and his despite that abuse

00:50:00--> 00:50:03

eternal joy that was sent from Allah continues for weeks on end.

00:50:05--> 00:50:07

And the more he does it, the more annoyed they are.

00:50:08--> 00:50:18

The more annoyed they are, there's this thumb law, he this frustration. My problem is, if you think that he is lost, if you think that he is diluted,

00:50:19--> 00:50:21

why do you have to respond?

00:50:22--> 00:50:26

Why do you have to get offended? Leaving me? Why do you have to say anything?

00:50:27--> 00:50:47

You know believer for your call Hydra Lee is what the Prophet told us I sent him, then he should stay is you should say something good or stay quiet. You calling him lost or confused? And what does that serve? It doesn't serve anything. But it does give you an insight into certain people certain kinds of thinking people have. Because some people cannot see you have a moment of joy.

00:50:48--> 00:50:54

They can't, I have to remind you that you're crazy, that you don't have a place to be be happy.

00:50:55--> 00:51:05

They need to see you the way they want. They want to mold you. Some people need control over a situation. And for some people, they they get addicted to getting a kick out of other people's misery.

00:51:06--> 00:51:12

They want to down on somebody else's happiness. If they see somebody happy, they have to make a comment that takes it away. That's it.

00:51:15--> 00:51:29

Because you can't you can't just leave them be if you really think he's lost and confused, and he's still senile. And because that's been going on for years, you know what, maybe there's no reason for you to talk to him. You can withhold your opinion. But the fact that you're so frustrated,

00:51:30--> 00:51:54

why are you so why are you so why is his emotional state? And his alleged rambling? Why is it hitting you so hard? Why is it hurting you so much? Because shaitaan is like that shaitaan? Can a disease that shaitaan can infect into someone? Is that they get irritated at somebody else's joy?

00:51:55--> 00:51:57

When someone else is even a little bit relieved?

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

Why are you happy?

00:52:01--> 00:52:03

Why do you get to know?

00:52:05--> 00:52:28

Your loss? You can you have to dismiss and multiply by zero you have to undo that in some way. You know, this is this is a really negative kind of mindset that permeates and people think well, I'm just telling the truth, though, the old man needs to hear that he's just crazy. I don't know why he doesn't get it. Why don't you get the unit to leave him alone.

00:52:30--> 00:52:43

He says Lola and Tiffany don't even if you consider me insane. I'm gonna say this, even if you think I'm seeing now, I know I sense that sense. And how amazing is it going to be when he's gonna get proven right, and they're all going to feel real smart.

00:52:44--> 00:53:25

That's going to come tomorrow, inshallah, that scene where it's all going to come to pass those weeks of insults. And the weeks of odds getting stronger, I find it more now. It's all over now. It's I can sense it everywhere. Now, that said getting stronger is actually going to lead to finally LSU when we're going to see that that's going to be an incredible thing. Now, that's going to be an episode by itself, which is why I left it out instead of 94 to 96. I just wanted to do 94 to 95, his joy and their irritation and his joy together. And now inshallah in 96. We're going to go, you know, go back. And there's one I know, something came to mind. Sometimes we'll say it's 10. I'll take one

00:53:25--> 00:53:29

minute and be done with it. And that is what's called mob mentality or collective thinking.

00:53:31--> 00:54:04

There are lots of members in that family, their wives, their children, there's there's lots of people, but you find the Quran assignment and anybody coming and giving him any kind of comfort. It's impossible to think all of them hated him. All of them find him crazy. There were some people that sympathize with him. Maybe there were some children that were kind to him. It's possible, right? We can assume that all of them were bad. But you know what, when you have an overwhelming bullying mentality, and culture inside of a family inside of a group, and even the people who mean well are silenced. And they can't be seen as giving relief, because then they'll be the next targets

00:54:04--> 00:54:45
