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

So don't worry

00:00:19--> 00:00:39

hamdulillah hiragana mein salatu salam ala rasulillah hit carrying wide early heat or Sahih Marine, the topic that I have is not a very funny topic. It's not very interactive. So I want you guys to forgive me for now, but it it deals with a subject that I think hits home for all of us. And that's the subject of grief. And

00:00:40--> 00:00:50

when you talk about use of it his Salaam, how many of you have ever heard that you should read through the use of when you're sad? How many of you've heard that before? Do you know where we get that from?

00:00:51--> 00:01:11

I actually believe that it is a sooner to read through the use of from your side. Even though the profit slice of them did not tell us when you're sad. There isn't necessarily a hadith where the prophets lie some explicitly says when you're sad Rizzuto uses a loss of condiments, Allah revealed pseudo use of to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the worst year of his life and has

00:01:12--> 00:01:53

an Iron Curtain which was the year of grief. And I want you to think about this. He's boycotted, he's been run out. He's a fugitive, his wife is dead. His uncle is dead. And not only that, he's being told sallallahu wasallam that he is the reason why they're dead. That it was this message that you brought this thing that was not known to the Arabs before that you brought to us that killed your wife and killed your uncle, you know that emotional guilt. SubhanAllah is far greater than any any sort of pain that you could actually experience by by losing someone being told that you did it, that you are the cause of their deaths. He goes out on a law it was set him to five and he's

00:01:53--> 00:02:33

rejected in thought for the worst rejection that he has ever faced. And he faces the worst day of his life when he is completely turned away. So he is facing dead ends in every single aspect of life and a law reveals to him Sora uses to comfort him. And so it's a Sunnah for us as well to go to this magnificent suta. When we find ourselves in prison when we find ourselves in grief and to reflect now with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of the things about him and use of it is set up. And the reason why a lot decided, are one of the reasons the wisdom of Allah telling the entire story of use of in one shot as opposed to the way that he tells the stories of the other prophet

00:02:33--> 00:02:56

Subhana Allah to Allah is that the story of use of it his Salaam, directly parallels the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was beloved to his people, in the hands of his family members and his family members told the profit slice I love that we are with you, no matter what you do, beloved by everyone. And then suddenly, he is thrown out by his family members.

00:02:57--> 00:03:35

And suddenly the profit slice alumni use of it Sam was thrown into a wild and turned into a slave in a strange home, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam doesn't go to a prison, but the Prophet slicin lives in the boycotts in wed and shared Pilate, which was basically a ghetto, the true definition of a ghetto of people that are holed up in a location, and they are cut off from economic resources. No one's allowed to sit with them, no one's allowed to marry from them. They have special identification, like Donald Trump suggests that the Muslims do in America now. They had special identification for the Muslims, no one was able to send food towards the Muslims. It was truly a

00:03:35--> 00:03:50

prison. It was a city, they had nothing to eat, people were dying out of hunger every single night when the Prophet slicin went to sleep. And I want you to think about this. I've been I've actually allowed Thailand who said that we would not sleep at night from the cries of children

00:03:51--> 00:03:52

who were hungry.

00:03:53--> 00:04:31

And the Prophet slicin was being told you did this. You put these people in this situation. And the prophets lie. Selim is not taken into the house of Aziz into the house of, you know, a powerful person, but he's taken in by people that are strange to him. in Medina, the Prophet slicin has to migrate and go to a strange place and he's at the mercy of these people. And like use of it his salam, the prophets lie, some would one day return to glory, and his name would be cleared. And the same people that subjected him to torture would be at his mercy sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he would deal with them the way that Yusuf Alayhi Salaam dealt with them. So the entire story of use of

00:04:31--> 00:05:00

it is set on parallels the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in some way, shape or form. And so it is of extreme comfort to the messenger sallallahu wasallam. To hear this story about use of it in his setup, one of the things as well that's amazing about the story of use of is that Allah makes it a point to point out his internal grief in every single one of these situations. Yes, usif will maintain an extraordinary exemplary state of Tilak

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

In a loss of hundreds Allah trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala his character shines in every single one of these instances, he does exactly what you would expect of a prophet of God. Everything that he does is befitting of a prophet, and a man who believes in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, but even with the use of gets hurt on the inside, when his brothers make those comments about him, in his face, what does the last say? A sorrow happiness. He swallowed it, it pains him on the inside to hear his brothers speak about him in that fashion, he swallowed it on the inside. When Allah subhanaw taala talks about a beautiful woman, you know, jumping up, you know, jumping on use of it

00:05:42--> 00:06:25

slumped, throwing herself at use of it so that locking the doors what is the loss of habitat, I say? Not bad. hametz be wahama beha she desired him and he desired her he was a man he had desires as well. A lot of times it gives us the raw emotion of use of it is set up throughout this entire ordeal so that we can understand this is a human being a man suffered through all of this one person's life included all of this. And it all started off with the envy towards him because Allah subhanho wa Taala had favored him as the mount of millefolium Rahim Allah to Allah says, When jacoba his Salam said to use of Allah he set up la toxo through yakata aquatique FAQ do like a Qaeda Do not

00:06:25--> 00:07:02

tell this dream of yours to your brothers, because they will plot against you had use of it his Salaam told them the dream they would have killed him. They wouldn't have even spared him. Right they would have killed him. It's the wisdom of the Oracle because you might think to yourself, Well, he didn't tell them the dream that he had, and they still throw him into the world. But had they known that dream they would have killed him. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam has a more severe situation than use of audio sound. He has no choice but to share with the people that hate him that he has been sent as a prophet to them. A deeply tribalistic society, a society that only cares about

00:07:02--> 00:07:40

their the name of the names of their tribes and their ancestors, the prophets lysozyme has to come to these opposing tribes and say I have been sent as a lawsuit to you to save you from Hellfire and Abuja had from bedroom Azam is not going to accept that Abuja hell and barrel Muslim who have been at war with Boko Haram or have been the rival tribe of Banu Hashim all these years, what are they going to say? Oh, Buddha says, look, we know he's on the truth. But when better Hashem provides food, are they sponsored? If a judge with food, we we can bring more food? When they show hospitality, we can show more hospitality. But where are we going to get a profit from if we

00:07:40--> 00:08:18

acknowledge that Mohammed Salah Lowry Islam from benu Harsha is a prophet of Allah, then what are we going to do we have nothing to rival them. So the prophets license situation is more difficult than use if it is Salaam, and that he has to stand up in front of these people and say, I am the Prophet of Allah and you from the opposing tribes, you have to obey me, your only salvation will now come through me and he has to obviously say it in a very gentle way. But he has to nevertheless deliver the message that Allah Subhana hoods Allah has commanded him to deliver. The other thing we see about use of it his Salaam is that Allah gives us to do is and by the way that your eyes of use of

00:08:18--> 00:08:55

it Salaam are plentiful. One of the most beautiful things we find is that when you supply the salon was thrown into the well, you'll find unanimously across all the narrations that jabril taught him how to make their app. And some of those their ads are actually narrated in the books of tifosi. So he was taught to make that even in the bottom of the well. Right. But where do we see use of Artesia lamps? Durant's most prominent, interestingly enough, Allah gives us and I'll talk about these two dots, the drought of use of it his salon at the lowest point of his life, where not only is he neglected, not only has he been abandoned by his family, not only is he is in a strange land, not

00:08:55--> 00:09:40

only is he living life like a slave, not only is he now slandered, but he's even going to prison. Allah gives us his daughter at that moment. And then later on in the surah, Allah gives us use of it his Salaam is there at the highest point in his life, when he's ascended the throne, and his family has been, you know, reunited with him, and he has achieved every single standard of success from a worldly perspective and from a religious perspective, Allah gives us both the lowest point and the highest point, his highest point is very simple. But Sol La Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam once said, that there is no person that is more noble than use of it, his Salah, now be immune to be immune to

00:09:40--> 00:10:00

be immune to be. He's a prophet, the son of a prophet, the son of a prophet, the son of a prophet. So from a nobility perspective, this is the most noble man in regards to lineage that has ever walked the face of the earth. From a beauty perspective. The prophets lie Selim says Yusuf Alayhi Salaam was given half of the beauty of the children of Adam

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

The money is solid. Half of it was given to use of it his setup. From a child's perspective out of 12 children, he is the one that is most beloved to his father. He is the one that his father who is a great prophet of Allah favors the most and loves the most. From a wealth perspective, if you read historically, they were also a well off family. So he has everything, honor, privilege, looks, status, everything that you can imagine, at the lowest point in his life, he has no family. He has no reputation. He has no money. He has no protection, and he has no future. Because when you're in a prison cell, you don't see the end or you don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. You're being

00:10:45--> 00:11:23

thrown into a prison cell where you will reside for the rest of your life. So how to lie I mean, this man has gone through everything that you can possibly imagine. And that's why an enormous Li m Rahim Allah, Allah says, There is no man in the history of the world that has had more to how will injera that has had more fluctuation in regards to his blessings in life, the news of it his setup, he has lived every single portion of life. I mean, he's been in every single position. He said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we also find with him that he has lived in every situation. He knows what it's like to be in poverty, I think he slots with the prophets lie some has lived in

00:11:23--> 00:11:27

utter poverty. Then he knew what it was like to live in a state of wealth.

00:11:29--> 00:11:37

Okay, what was the other Cara Illa for Allah, Allah subhanaw taala found you pour in a lot, some hundreds or other major rich, he marries Khadija law, the law.

00:11:38--> 00:12:16

And the prophets license experiences what it's like to be wealthy. He knows what it's like to barely make it and katha what's called ltfs, which means just making it to eat just enough to have just enough to get by the profits license knows what it's like to live an obscure lifestyle. He was a shepherd on the outskirts of Mecca. For many years of his life, he knows what it's like some allow them to be respected without having any money to achieve a position of integrity and respect in society, not using any of the traditional means of money and so on so forth. He knows what it's like to be respected and be wealthy. He knows what it's like to be slandered someone law who I think he's

00:12:16--> 00:12:41

been through it all. He knows what it's like to be a follower. He knows what it's like to be in charge of his own followers. He knows what it's like to have his own enemies at his mercy. I mean, you talk about a fluctuation in life, the prophets lie Selim has lived through it all. And so his use of it his setup, and that's why an Imam Al ghazali, Rahim, Allah tada says something very profound. He says the two essential qualities of a Muslims character are sober, and

00:12:42--> 00:13:02

patience and gratitude, patience, and gratitude. And he said, all that solid is the only thing patience is, is gratitude in times of hardship. Stubborn, is to still be shackled to still have sugar, when you're going through hard times. Why? Because what is patience, to be able to look at what you still have and say, and hamdulillah

00:13:03--> 00:13:39

something has been taken away from you. You've had you've been afflicted with a major tragedy, whether it's the loss of a person, or the loss of wealth, or whatever it may be, and you're able to still keep things in perspective and say, You know what, I'm still okay, you're able to still be grateful, and see what you still do have that Allah has not taken away from you. So it's sugar, in times of hardship, whereas he says, sugar is sober in times of ease. Gratitude just means to be patient, in times of ease, what does that mean? Whenever you reach a position of privilege, and your lifestyle is great, to still be patient with the things that you will never be able to attain,

00:13:40--> 00:14:20

except in the Hereafter, to not crave even more than what you do have. So to be patient with the restrictions that this life inherently contains. So somebody and sugar are really one quality in the same, right? It's the consistent character of the believer that no matter what happens to his circumstances, he still turns back to a loss of Hannah to Allah at all times. And he still expresses a sense of gratitude and an ability and a willingness to take it as it comes. Whatever is going to come in my direction, I will maintain what Allah subhana wa tada has commanded me to maintain, and my character will not change for worse, as a result of circumstances that change for worse. And you

00:14:20--> 00:14:28

know, a lot of times Subhan Allah in this regard, one of the most phenomenal things about both use of Instagram and the prophets lie Selim is that usually when people make it,

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

when people have lived difficult sits in difficult circumstances, and then they make it, they become rich, they become famous, they have authority. Usually they feel like they have to overcompensate for the time that they had in this world where they were low. So their arrogance, they change, right. They'll act with a sense of entitlement even though they once lived in a state of poverty. Do you see the profits license character change? Do you see it subtle the allow on her saying the profit slice and I'm wondering

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

But then, you know, after that Mecca, he started to get a little bit more like this and a little bit more like that. No. Did the profits license stop sitting with Bilodeau the law and was sitting and hubbub about sitting on the ground with the same clothes, demonstrating the same graceful personality? What yet enough for a sort of Lysol alarm system and yashima miskeen? Well, yakety lahoma is our beloved, the ofa says, I have never seen the profit slice. I'm too proud to be walking around with orphans and widows and carrying out their needs for them fulfilling their needs. He didn't change. His circumstances changed dramatically. But he was the same person. You know how many

00:15:38--> 00:15:53

times I've had married couples in front of me. And, you know, Mashallah Allah Subhana, Allah mandorla him, Allah gave them great things. And they used to live in a state of poverty, and they used to barely be making it in an apartment. Now they're living in a big house. And the wife says, I wish we were still poor.

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

I missed the Poor you.

00:15:57--> 00:16:36

I miss you when you were humble. Because you changed. You became arrogance, you became prideful. It's natural that when circumstances change our character and our behavior changes as well. One of the most beautiful things about use of it his setup, when he was in prison, the prisoner saw him in prison at the lowest point in his life. And you know what they said? They said in Iraq, I mean, in the morning, we see you to be a person of excellence of a son. We can tell by your behavior, we can tell by your prayer and your devotion, we can tell by your character that you're not like everyone else. You're a Morrison, we don't know your story. We don't know why you're here. But we can tell

00:16:36--> 00:17:00

that you have something special. The grace that Youssef carried himself with his salon in prison, made the other prisoners aware that this man is special. In nanaka mean and watched me they said we see you to be amongst those who excel. A few hours later, Allah Subhana Allah says that when you sit is sitting on the throne, and his brother see him for the first time not knowing who he was. They say to him in an argument and

00:17:01--> 00:17:36

we can tell that you're a person who just, you know, has all of this good, who has this character, this quality of excellence, nessa the same words were said to him at the lowest point in his life, and the highest point in his life to show you that his circumstances did not change him. You know, well back in a study called the low tide after he became an Ethan he was seeing carrying the bags of goods in the marketplace buying and selling just like everyone else, like a poor man. And our little the law and who sees them and says, Yeah, I mean a woman or he says to him, yeah, yeah, halifa todo su de la. Look, you're the halifa of the province Isom, you don't need to be doing this anymore. You

00:17:36--> 00:18:15

know what I wish I could have said to him, he said that I don't want a good quality that I had before being Khalifa to change because I became a Hadith of the Prophet slicin. That doesn't make sense. It doesn't make sense that because Allah gave me a position something good that I used to do. I no longer do so what was he doing? He was still serving the poor the way that he always used to serve. He was still doing the things that made him a good person before he reached that position of affluence. Abubakar maintained those good qualities because your circumstances should not change you. So let's get to the facts. The first idea is number 33. where Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:18:15--> 00:18:51

telling us about use of it his Salaam, responding to the threats of the wife of Al Aziz to put him in prison, Laos, gentlemen, Willa coonan, Amina sovereign, she says to him that if he doesn't respond to my request, of Xena of committing adultery, that he will be put in prison, and he will be from the humiliated in society, that I'm going to make sure that he loses every shred of dignity that he has, he's a slave, and he's going to prison and he will be slandered and and all types of things will be said about him use of it his solemn response to this threat. And he calls upon a loss of animals.

00:18:52--> 00:19:34

And first he says, God or be a signal hub boo la mina de una de la. He said, Oh, Allah, prison is more beloved to me than that which they're calling me to. Not to give you the full context of this. It was not just the wife of Aziz that was calling use of to commit Zina. All of the women in that society all of her friends are gathering around use of Aryan Salaam and they're saying, go ahead and fulfill her need, go ahead and do what she wants you to do. This woman, she's serious. She is heckled. This is a woman who holds grudges. If you don't respond to her request, she's going to do this to you. And she's going to do that to you. The men and the women of the society are telling us

00:19:34--> 00:19:59

of it, Sarah, go ahead. Look, you have a need. You have you know, you're in fear. You have a special permission to commit this act that you don't really believe in to get yourself out of the situation. Go ahead and do it. It's just like a marshmallow Rahim Allah when he stood up against the oppressor of his time, he stood up for a principle that he believed in a foundation of our creed that the other scholars came to him and told them yeah, he Ma'am, not

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

socket sudo and for second, don't kill yourselves. Just go ahead and let it go. It's okay let it go. So you don't just have the West suas of safe on the whispers of safe on right telling you go ahead and commit that. You don't just have your own natural human weakness. You have people around you telling you it's okay and we know that seltene and inhuman devils are more convincing than than the jinn of the devils, aren't they? When you have a person in front of you telling you it's okay, that advisor of suit that advisor of evil that person is far worse than a genie shaped lung. That's why when they plotted to kill the Prophet, slice alum, shape on went to Dr. Nadella, he went to the

00:20:38--> 00:21:14

assembly in the form of a person, because if they see a man like them, suggesting something so evil, it changes the game. So usif is facing west swass in every way. He's facing the whispers of shape on the whispers of the people, the whispers of his own self because he desired the woman anyway, no whisper of fear of consequences if I don't respond to this. All of this is in use of Allah, his setup, and that's equivalent to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when everything was against him. And they told the Prophet slicin Look, what do you want, we'll give you anything that you want. Just worship our idols for one day of the year.

00:21:15--> 00:21:51

And the prophets licenses, even if they put the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left, I will not give up this mission until a loss of habitat that makes it victorious. Or I die there and allow reveals gulia you had Cafiero la Abu Jamal tabuteau? Well, antem Abdul Rahman Abbott until the end of the sort of look, we're not going to compromise on this. This is our religion. This is our Deen, it is what it is. And I have to stay firm on this and take the consequences as they come. So this is happening to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and who are they sending to convince the prophets lie Selim to give up this message, I will call him his uncle who's about to die because of the

00:21:51--> 00:22:28

circumstances that have been brought upon the family. Because the prophets will allow you to send abroad a message that the Arabs did not like and I will call it is coming to the Prophet slice that I mean, he's saying, Look, they're saying, if you just compromise on a little bit, everything will be okay. Everything will be fine. They'll give you anything that you want. And the profit slice on has to hold firm, like use of it. He said, I'm held firm, and calls upon Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And he says, Rob, be my Lord. And this is something that some of the scholars pointed out, that he says the lumbee and not Allah, He, not my god, he says my sustainer he's appealing to lobia

00:22:28--> 00:23:08

he's appealing to the Sustainer showing the loss of hundreds out of that he trusts Allah subhanho wa Taala. With everything that's happening right now, I understand the wisdom or I understand that there is wisdom that is unknown to me, I trust you, and everything that is happening right now. And essentially when he says to a loss of power to Allah, I'd rather go to prison than commit adultery, which I naturally desire in the situation. He is saying to Allah Subhana, WA tada and liberty La Habra, la Omen and mausolea. To be tested and tried in this world is more beloved to me than disobeying you. Because this obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala entails a punishment in the

00:23:08--> 00:23:51

hereafter. Whereas mouse or whereas empathy law, being tested for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala means pain in this world followed by relief in the hereafter. So sidama to dunya Salama, to deem, to be safe in my religion is better than being safe in regards to my worldly life, I'd rather be feel a sense of pain here than feel it in the Hereafter, I'd rather be tested than to feel that pleasure for a temporary for a temporary period, and then be punished in the hereafter for it. And sitting here it's very important to understand us to finally his Salah when he appeals to Allah and says, I'd rather be in prison with us if it is Salaam is doing, by the way, is he saying to a loss of

00:23:51--> 00:23:57

human to Allah, I know what it's like to be abandoned and to put be put away from society.

00:23:58--> 00:24:38

He's been in a well before he's been neglected. He's been scared. He's been in fear. And so panela even though he's been traumatized, by that experience of being thrown into the well, and being neglected by the people, he still would rather go to that miserable situation, than do something that's displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he also understood hardship in life. He also understood what it was like to be an orphan and to have nothing around you. He also understands what it's like to be neglected by society. But what is the profit slice I'm saying in macoun, bigger valbona Aditya Birla Valley, Oh Allah so long as you are not

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

angry with me, I don't care. Meaning what I'm willing to face any form of punishment, any form of pain, so long as that does not mean that you're angry with me. Oh Allah. It's the same type of rhetoric that the messenger sallallahu wasallam is using. Now you know, it's interesting. The next ayah on use of Islam says that prison is more beloved to me. The next day I lost franchisors

00:25:00--> 00:25:37

first job Allah horrible that his Lord responded to him. And the scholars say Yusuf Alayhi Salam could have just asked a lot to save him from the situation he didn't need to ask Allah subhana wa tada or say to Allah, a signal that I'd rather go to prison, he could have asked Allah subhanho to Allah for Allah Thea, which is to be freed, to be freed from the entire situation to help him in the entire situation. And the fact that a law responded with festa de Bella, hurrah Buddha Allah answered him shows you anything Yousuf would have asked at that moment would have been honored by a loss of high notes add an email go to Rahim Allah to Allah, He says oh hello in our use of a loss of

00:25:37--> 00:25:43

hundreds Allah said to use with it his use, and to harvest and kaithal culture acids

00:25:45--> 00:26:11

that are lost that to use of Oh use if you put yourself in prison, when you call out and said prison is more beloved to me. What our culture, our fear to lay their own feet. And if you would have said that to be pardoned and freed from the situation was more beloved to you, than I would have granted that to you. And that's why the prophets lie some This is a very powerful lesson for us to learn here. The prophets lie some he wants heard more I'd say a llama and yes hello Kesava

00:26:12--> 00:26:49

all I asked you for patience. Don't we always say that? May Allah grant them patience? May Allah grant you patience. You know what the province license said when he heard more asking for patience? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says so Allah, Allah, Allah, you've asked Allah for difficulty and hardship for celular afia asked him instead for pardon and freedom asked him to get you out of the situation. Don't ask when you ask a law for patience, then you're acknowledging that the hardship is going to stay. Instead patients should be your response if the hardship remains but when you ask a loss of hundreds Allah asked a lot to get you out of the difficult situation, have

00:26:49--> 00:27:29

that person one person have one that good expectation of a loss of hundreds that even if he doesn't deliver you out of that situation, that there's a wisdom behind that and you will be patient but don't ask Allah subhanaw taala for trial and hardship. And so he says, He says there will be a surgeon or how will you lay a min max Amalia de Rouen any la that prison is more beloved to me than that which they are calling to me that that which they are calling me to what tosser if I need k the Honda and if you don't do away with their evil plans, they're evil deception, then I will long for them and I will be amongst the ignorant now I want to focus now Minh, una de la la la la la silla

00:27:29--> 00:28:15

Fanny Katonah from that which they are calling me to. Now something very interesting thir here min Maja de Luna de la de Lune Annie is both male and female. Okay, so Gemma, when it refers to both men and women calling me towards something that's evil, Qaeda who know their evil plan is jamberoo. oneness. It refers to women plotting against him in particular, okay, or their evil plan. So when Yusuf Ali his Salaam says Minaya de Lune, and he LA, he's acknowledging that it is both men and women that there are a bunch of people that are telling him, just go ahead and do it. Okay, so it wasn't just the women, it's an entire group of people, an entire community telling us if it is

00:28:15--> 00:28:45

Scylla, just go ahead, go ahead and respond to her call. The plot is, is is is multifaceted, it's throughout society, and they are all calling him. Now. Why does the last pensado say that unify Islam said Qaeda who know all of those women, as opposed to Qaeda have her evil call. Because again, this is a group of women. And not only that, you know, what they're telling you stuff is not they're telling him go ahead and respond to her call. And then they take us off to the side and they say, Listen, if you came with me, I would be even better than her.

00:28:47--> 00:28:48

He's facing them.

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

They've been a bustle the alone time and who says that each woman pulled him to the side privately and said, Come with me. Instead, he is facing a fitna that is absolutely unmatched. And he says if you don't do away with all of their evil plans, all of it then us will lay him know that I will desire some of them that I'll fall to all of their plans. And you know, it's interesting here used to fight Islam also recognizes that not all of them are equally evil. They could be that a lot of people are plotting against you in something and some of them are just more evil than others. Why? Because even with the brothers of use of ideas Salaam baalak I don't mean him not talk to us. You

00:29:29--> 00:29:35

know, they all plotted against them, but one of them said don't kill use of it. His setup just throw them into the wall. That's the nicest brother amongst them.

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

Talk about a really bad set of brothers. No, no, don't kill him. It's okay. Just Just throw him into the well. Just throw him into the wall. That's literally what he was saying. But the Prophet slicin and even he recognized that with his enemies and that's why on the day of better the province, liason did something very interesting. He looked at the army of prices they were coming and he says in jaquan, filco me higher fee saw

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

Gentlemen,

00:30:02--> 00:30:37

prophets lie. Some said if there's any good left in these people, it's on that guy that's writing the red camel. Who was he talking about Aruba in Abu Dhabi, who is an enemy of the Prophet slice number 12 in Abu Dhabi, I was an enemy of the Prophet slice on them. But the prophet sly son looked at his face and he saw something interesting. And he was right rootsweb in Abu Dhabi, I was trying to convince Abuja that we shouldn't go forth with this battle. So the prophets lie some saw on his face that he didn't have that same arrogance that Abuja had had at those in those moments and what happened before truly is that Earth besides Abu jihad, let's forget about this. We don't need to go

00:30:37--> 00:30:45

forth with this. We don't need to fight them, we can continue to sanction them economically and do what we do. But a battle is not in our best interest. A Buddha had called him a coward

00:30:47--> 00:31:23

and Abuja hell, you know, verbally abused him to the point that he was ashamed in front of his people. And he finally went out with hesitation and he died in bed. They're just like, I wish I hadn't. But the province Lyceum recognizes that when people plot against you, not all of them are going to be equally evil. Nevertheless, there's going to be evil found amongst them. And even some panela their intimate say here, the scholars say here, that there is an evil even in the silence of people that were not necessarily plotting against us to Friday his Salah. Why Because Allah as is the guy whose wife is clearly throwing herself at use of it his Scilab What does he do? Does he

00:31:23--> 00:31:32

punish his wife does he punish use of it he sat down, he says use of his use of just leave this alone was stuff that he didn't begin he tells her go seek forgiveness from Allah subhana wa.

00:31:34--> 00:32:12

So you know what it is, they say as well that because he liked Lita, he liked the sense of honor because he's sitting by and he's letting this happen. He knows his wife is like this and he's not doing anything about it to prevent it. Then he's also taking part in the plot against use of adding his salon even if he doesn't intend to do so. Those who are silent when evil is taking place when someone is being slandered and plotted against and don't do anything about it are equally evil. They also share the responsibility so use please Salaam says if you don't do away with all of their all of the things they're calling me towards their evil plans. Also in a hidden hour, I couldn't be no

00:32:12--> 00:32:27

Jalen, I will desire them. I will desire them I will incline towards them. I'm a human being. I'm a man and Yusuf Ali his Salaam is doing something that's very interesting. He's acknowledging his weakness to Allah and in that he's finding strength,

00:32:28--> 00:32:53

strength in the sight of a loss of hundreds Allah is not challenging the loss of hundreds Allah to send you bad conditions and say I'm going to pull through and watch what I do. Strength is acknowledging your weakness to a loss of habitat and that's why the prophets lie Selim says yeah, how are you? Yeah, are you we romatic esteli a slightly shut Nicola. Want to kill me in an FC port for time? Oh, Allah. Don't leave me to myself for the blink of an eye.

00:32:54--> 00:33:18

I'm weak. I have my flaws. I have my imperfections. The prophets lie Selim. He said that do not wish for pfitzner don't wish for fitna don't wish for hardship in your life. A lot of tests you you don't test the loss of Hannah Montana. Don't ask Allah subhana wa tada for tests and the prophets lysozyme said if the gel came out, don't think to yourself Mashallah. I'm a strong Muslim. I'm a strong believer. I'm gonna go face the judge and tell him in his face. He's the judge.

00:33:20--> 00:33:28

What did the province license say, dude? He told the companions if you hear that the job is out and he's in a land, go to another land run.

00:33:29--> 00:34:09

Don't think that you're going to be able to face him and argue with him and debate with him. Don't ask for hardship and trial in your life. acknowledge your weakness to Allah subhana wa Tada. This is an integral part of your app, whether it's physical weakness or spiritual weakness, who can give me an example of physical weakness from the court and acknowledging your physical weakness? How about Zachary it his Salah? Are you about Islam when zecharia says was stellar in the one hand and as nominee was stellar associada and weak on the inside? My bones are decaying. I'm an old man. My head is full of gray hair. That's a form of acknowledging your weakness to Allah physically. What about

00:34:09--> 00:34:37

spiritually acknowledging your weakness to a loss of hundreds and how about the very first ad that was taught to men? What inlanta after Lana, what's on Hamner, Lana coonan, liminal ha, serene, if you don't forgive us and have mercy on us, then we will be from the losers. So acknowledge your weakness to a lot cry to a lot and acknowledge your weakness to a lot. And that is actually a form of strength, admitting that to a loss of hundreds out of even saying to a lot, look a lot, I can't even repent without you.

00:34:38--> 00:35:00

I can't even properly repent without you. I need you, Oh Allah, free yourself from yourself. And that's why Yusuf Ali, his Salah is the first on the day of judgment that is shaded by a loss thrown in a particular category. He's already a prophet, so he's already amongst those that are shaded by the throne of Allah. But he will arrive in a category that the prophets

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

circumcise a young person. And by the way that the Hadith of the seven shaded applies to men and women, okay, someone that was called to zimin by someone of hasebe and Jamal have status and beauty status means they can cover you, as far as your worldly consequences or concerns, you'll you know, you'll be okay if you do this from a worldly perspective and they're beautiful. So you actually do desire them for Canada in the law, but that person says no, but I'm afraid of Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet slice in the mentions that as a category of people shaded by the throne of Allah Subhana Allah use of it, his Salaam will be the chief of them. Why? Because use of has everything working

00:35:37--> 00:35:39

against him. He's single.

00:35:40--> 00:36:19

All right. He's single. He's really handsome. And he's in a desperate situation. She on the other hand, she's beautiful. Okay, look, Aziz is not going to marry a woman. That's not beautiful. All right, the woman is beautiful. And there are many things that are said about her as far as a thought and narrations are concerned about the beauty of this woman. She's beautiful. She's in power. She's threatening him with consequences if he doesn't answer her call. So both the internal and the external factors are against use of Allah, his salon, and he still calls upon a loss, hands on, you know, they say psychologically, we're motivated by three things. Everything we do in life comes out

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

of three things. fear, pain, pleasure. And you heard that before. We're motivated by fear, pain, or pleasure, all of these things, three things are against use of it. So okay, so he fears the consequences, but he fears a lot more.

00:36:37--> 00:37:15

All right, he knows that he's going to be beaten, he's going to face pain in this world for not answering her call. But the pain of the Hereafter is more important to him. He desires the woman he had you know, this His pleasure he desires the woman, but the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala is more important than his own pleasure. So he's able to master all three of these things that psychologically motivate a person in the first place, and instead direct them to Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's why the prophets lie Selim says, In the Hadith, good see, that Allah subhanaw taala has said after describing the stages at which a person arrives at the love of Allah subhanho wa

00:37:15--> 00:37:17

Taala. For either

00:37:18--> 00:37:56

if I love someone going to seminary who love the Esma obeah. When Allah loves you, he becomes the hearing by which you hear the site by which you see the hand by which you strike the foot by which you walk, what that means is, you will get to a point where you only hear those things that are pleasing to a loss of hundreds out of things that you used to listen to, because they pleased you, you now actually dislike them because you know that they're displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala It is natural, Allah subhanaw taala has created you in a way that looking at someone from the opposite gender that's attractive is pleasing to you. But because you know that it's not pleasing to Allah

00:37:56--> 00:38:37

Subhana Allah, you actually want to lower your gaze, you actually don't want to look because you know that it's not pleasing to a loss of hundreds either. You find an aversion to things that you naturally inclined towards why because a lot is more precious to you than even yourself when levina amanohashidate do have vanilla, and those who believe their love for a loss penalty is greater than anyone's love for anything else. That's a love that cannot be quantified. And so use of it his slab is able to put that away Why he says not only will I inclined towards them I couldn't mean that Jacqueline I will end up being from amongst the ignorant now why don't you somebody Salaam say a

00:38:37--> 00:39:17

continental philosophy in accordance mental caffeine I would be from the disbelievers. I would be from the major centers does jaha does ignorance really seem like the the word that fits the situation? doesn't like I'll be from the ignorant like if I do this terrible thing, then I'll be considered amongst the ignorant what is use of ideas that I'm talking about? What ignorance is he's talking about. He's talking about being placed in a situation of being jehlen Billa ignorance of a loss of Hana hotel, because sin dims the light in your heart. Sin dims the light in your heart and your ability to have a meaningful relationship with a loss of hundreds of other your ability to be

00:39:17--> 00:39:41

at if beloved someone who knows a loss of hundreds either in a meaningful way. Someone who connects with a loss of hundreds of other sin is the direct barrier between your heart and a loss of Hannah hoghton. That's why the mama shaft a whole lot and I know Look, when you say something like this, it scares everybody. Imam Shafi, don't you Malala authored a very famous poem. Okay. And it was after he saw the ankle of a woman

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

and we hear that and we're like,

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

Are you serious? Where does that leave me? He saw the ankle of a woman and he says Sokoto in our care so heavily. I complained to hear that I was no longer able to memorize properly for outer 70 either tomkin mouth

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

He told me to stop singing.

00:40:02--> 00:40:22

He considered he said why he said an animal lie in order in order to live your authority. Honestly, the light the knowledge of Allah is light and the light of Allah won't be given to a disobedient person. And he mama Sofitel, haimo lots of attributed weakness and memory and his dimming and his relationship with a loss of hundreds of data because he saw something that was inappropriate at the time.

00:40:23--> 00:40:58

Now, let's not look at that and say, Okay, we're done. If that's the case, then we have absolutely no chance. But let's consider in our own circumstances, if I'm sitting at home, and if I'm watching things that I'm not supposed to be watching, and I'm constantly engaging in activity that's displeasing to a loss of hundreds and that hinders my ability to have assure in my salon to taste the sweetness of my prayer to have a meaningful relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. Because I'm leading my heart to other than a loss of hundreds, I can't expect it to be filled except by other than a loss of hundreds. So you have to be able to cut those things out. And the greatest

00:40:58--> 00:41:21

consequence of sin is that it moves you away from a loss of hundreds, the greatest consequences that it hinders that relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. So Yusuf Ali Hassan is once again affirming that the ultimate loss is the loss of a loss of habitat, that I'm willing to face everything else so long as it still means that I can have that relationship with a loss of hundreds. Now, Yousif is thrown into prison.

00:41:22--> 00:42:03

And you know, something very powerful that the scholars say slender is more difficult than anything else that a person will face in life, even if you go to prison, but you still have your dignity. Right? There are political prisoners all around the world that are unjustly prisons, not because of justice. They are unjustly imprisoned by tyrants and dictators and whatever you may have half of them, if not more in the Muslim world, okay, unjustly imprisoned political prisoners, but you know what they have their dignity, they have their Islam, they know that they were in prison for a good for something good for something that was true for standing for justice. But whenever you are

00:42:03--> 00:42:37

slandered, you would rather be in prison than have your reputation taken away from you, some people would rather die. And that's why the prophets lysozyme says that an Imam, the slander will not enter gentlemen, one of the most powerful explanations actually my teacher shilada huffy the whole law was one of the most slandered people that I've ever met in my life. He said something and he started to cry. And I'll never forget, this was the first time I actually heard of the Hadeeth. Natural agenda. No, ma'am. That a slander will not enter Paradise. He said, The people that have robbed others of their peace and peace of mind in this world don't deserve to have peace of mind in the hereafter.

00:42:39--> 00:43:15

Don't expect to have gender if you made someone's life hell, by slandering it's difficult the prophets lie some saying the one who slanders will not enter Paradise. When use of his sermons in prison, his reputation has also been tarnished. He's been accused of certain things. And that's more difficult on use of it his setup than anything else he's facing. You know, many of you may have heard, and this is a very common story, a common view, that use of it is that I'm remember he interpreted the dreams of those two men. And he told one of the men what was corny and the Malik mentioned me to the king. And what are we taught? And look, I'm going to very respectfully disagree

00:43:15--> 00:43:49

with a common view. We're taught that a lot punished use of ideas Salaam, and left him in the prison cell. Because Yusuf Ali, his salon asked that man to mention him in front of the king, and all of these erroneous narrations, none of them authentic, that a lot told us if it is Scilab, you've lost tawakkul in me, you lost trust in me, because you told him to mention me in the presence of the king. And that's why I lost us the answer who shavon with the crop that the shaitaan caused him to forget his Lord will say that that's talking about use of it, his all of those narrations are not only inauthentic, but they're inconsistent with the character of use of his son. And so it is more

00:43:49--> 00:44:28

likely and sallow shape on the karate, that that the shape on caused him to forget his Lord is not talking about use of it some but talking about the other man that he forgot to mention use of his salon, in the presence of that King. And so use of spends all of these years in prison. And you know what's even further proof that use of did not lose this token. When the man remembers after years that he forgot to get use of it stolen out of prison and mentioned him to the king and the king has a dream that he wants interpreted. When he comes to use of it his setup and use it interprets the dream The men offers use of it. He said I'm to grant him his freedom. The King offers him the

00:44:28--> 00:44:39

opportunity to be free. But what is use of it is Salam say, Yusuf Alayhi Salam says ask him about the women that slandered me in Nairobi DK the hidden Arlene.

00:44:40--> 00:44:51

My lord knows about their plot and their deception. What is the use of it? And I'm saying no, I don't want to leave prison unless I have my dignity. I'm not going to be free because I did the king of favor. I'm going to be freed because I was innocent.

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

Because it was not true what they said about me, that's a man of toilet code. That's a man of integrity and trust. It doesn't make sense to say that man law

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

To record and Allah at any point in his life, after all those years rotting in a prison cell saying, I'm not coming out until my innocence is clarified, and Subhanallah what we find? Remember the woman told him and Aziz, she said, ladies and gentlemen, whether your Conan Mina saw her in that he will be put in prison and he will be from the belittled ones he will be from the humiliated people. What it Allah Subhana Allah do in an homea keep doing I tell you that well a key okay that they plan and a lot of plans. Not only did Allah return him and put them in a place of authority, but Allah subhanaw taala put him in the highest position, the position that her husband once had.

00:45:43--> 00:45:52

Allahu Akbar, talk about being taken from a position of so called humiliation to a great position. She's telling him you will be humiliated Allah gave gave him her husband's job

00:45:54--> 00:46:35

after this process, likewise, Abuja took his camels and his horses to the day of bed and Abu Jahan was kind of mentioned he was singing songs about how the Arabs will sing our tales about how we massacred this group of filth. They had extra camels and horses to bring to bed that to celebrate over the corpses of the Muslims. And Abuja says a lot of the honorable will brag about us all the time, this mighty army of Abuja, and we will take out of everyone's memory, Mohamed Salah law assignment, his people what ends up happening and stuck. They are humiliated. And the Prophet slicin comes back to Mecca only as an authority over them. A lot puts the Prophet slice them in a position

00:46:35--> 00:46:43

where all of them are now at the mercy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the Prophet slicin like Yusuf Alayhi, salaam, what does he do?

00:46:44--> 00:47:10

He forgives them. And he says, I will say to you all, what my brother used to have said to his brothers, latter three barley communium there is no blame upon you today. You killed my uncle, you cause my family members to die. You caused me to be exiled and humiliated from my homeland for a decade, I'm not going to treat you with any form of vengeance, you're free to go

00:47:11--> 00:47:45

with a heart of gold. Not only that a boss comes to the Prophet sly suddenly says listen, I was soufiane is a proud man. He says if you could announce if you could make publicity on the man who fought against the Prophet slicin for a decade if you could make his house one of the safe havens like if you can mention him in some way, when the province license comes into Mecca, he says manda hora de IV Sofia and for Who am and whoever enters into the house of Abu Sufyan is safe. He still cares about their sensitivities and feelings, even though they hurt the profits of those of Young's wife was the one who cut his chest open with the alarm. Einhorn chewed his liver and the profit

00:47:45--> 00:47:53

slice and forgave her. She came to the profit slice and she said I was the one that killed your uncle. And now I've come to accept Islam the Prophet slicin says Alan, welcome.

00:47:55--> 00:48:37

But that's what you said it sounded my brother use it. That's what he said to his brothers when his brothers wronged him. Now we move on to the drama and the time of glory. I 101 where Yusuf Alayhi Salam says, Rob be totally mean and Mulkey will alum turn him into a hadith far You know, somehow it will all Anto a de for dunya will appeal to any Muslim man will happily bestow on his use of honey his Salaam says My Lord, and this conversation this is after everything has happened for you. So he's now the king. He has authority. He has money, everyone's at his mercy. Everyone knows what an honorable man he is. He has everything you could possibly ask for in this world. And he draws to the

00:48:37--> 00:48:46

side in a private moment with a loss of Hannah Tada. And once again, what I'll be my Lord, does this sound like a man who's bitter about anything that happened to him in life?

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

Does this sound like a man who ever lost trust in a loss?

00:48:51--> 00:49:01

He says, My Lord. And it's a complete acknowledgments that Allah put him in this position. He doesn't say, Oh Allah, I made it. Thank you.

00:49:02--> 00:49:30

And hamdulillah Allah, I became the king, and I'm powerful. Now. Now give me gentlemen. He calls upon a lot and he says, I hate any human animal you gave me from your kingdom. Well, Antony Minter will add if you taught me some of that knowledge Subhana Allah what is the law tell us in the Koran kulula home America book 10 morioka man Tasha, what 10 zero welcome in mentorship, what to Islam and Tisha what to the lumen, Tisha, big can hide in the Kerala condition

00:49:31--> 00:49:54

that Allah subhanho wa Taala is magical. Allah is the possessor of all kingdoms. He is the King of all kings. Tim, welcome and Tasha. You give some power to whoever you please. And you take it away from whoever you please. And you give honor to who you please if the entire world gathered against the person to humiliate them, but you desired for them honor you will honor them anyway.

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

What to the lumen Tasha and if a person forges our false reputation

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

Puts themselves in a position that doesn't belong to them, you will humiliate them. Because that's your decision. Oh Allah, Yusuf Alayhi. Salaam has a full acknowledgement that even when you give me from this kingdom, it's minimal. It's I will never be an absolute King because you are the king of kings. And I will never have all knowledge because you are an alien, you are the one who has all knowledge. He's saying to Allah subhanaw taala you've given me everything I could possibly want in this world and he mentions those blessings, then he makes it a segue for requests for good in the hereafter. I don't have anything else to ask you of this world, Oh Allah, I have nothing else to ask

00:50:39--> 00:51:19

you. All I want is to die a Muslim and to follow in the path of the righteous, you know, the brothers and sisters, what you ask Allah Subhana Allah says a lot about you. What you ask of Allah what you make your app for, it says a lot about your character. If all of your drama is taller, which is request, give me this give me this Give me that. If you go to a loss of Hannah to Allah with a wishlist every time you make dinner, and don't ask him anything of this hereafter, and don't acknowledge any of the blessings that have already been given to you, and don't praise Him and thank him. That says a lot about the priorities in your heart and it could be why Allah subhanaw taala is

00:51:19--> 00:51:42

not giving you what you're asking him, because a lot tells us that there are people who say Arjuna for dunya has done well. Phil archeologia Hasina walked in Adama not they asked Allah subhanaw taala for the goodness of this world, the goodness of the hereafter and to be protected from hellfire. So it's already the equation and you're throughout the divine equation is that two thirds of your job should be dedicated to what this world of the hereafter

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

yeah

00:51:46--> 00:52:26

two thirds of your there should be dedicated to the art of the hereafter. How many of you guys know why you just said here after right? Two thirds of your job is dedicated to the hereafter and you know what hasna and dunia is goodness in this world is it's Edwin nafion. Alma Nava, what is coming by Eva Wyman and mozzarella, it's three things that the Prophet slicin used to ask for beneficial knowledge, which will take you to better places in the hereafter anyway. What is confianza I'm sorry, well and pure sustenance so that you live a comfortable life, but it's a lot at the end of the day, the number one concern when you earn your money is not it's still it's not going to put and

00:52:26--> 00:53:02

hindrance between you and success in the hereafter. Well, I'm done with the Kabbalah and that a lot accepts your good deeds. That's goodness in this world. So even when you ask for things in this world, the ark, you know, the hereafter should be in your minds, and use the valley Islam mentions these blessings in in progression. The first blessing is a thought that you've given me in this world, I'll play tennis and you've given me something of this world. The second blessing which is greater than I thought being given something material is knowledge. I learnt any mentor. You've taught me how to interpret dreams, and you've taught me some of this knowledge, knowledge is a

00:53:02--> 00:53:18

greater blessing than anything else. That's material. But the greatest blessing of all, is a loss pleasure. Allah subhanho to Allah, being pleased with you. You know, Mama Shafi Rahim, Allah to Allah He said, I want to show of hands how many of you were born Muslim?

00:53:20--> 00:53:34

How many of you, all of us were born Muslim? I know we're gonna have that answer. But how many of you were born into Muslim families? Raise your hand again. Please, everyone raise your hand that was born into Muslim families. Do you realize how easy you had it?

00:53:36--> 00:54:04

People spend their entire lives trying to find Islam, trying to find meaning and purpose in life. And it was just given to you when you were born. And the amount of Shafi emo lots of it has a very beautiful job. Listen to this job. This is especially now for those who were born into households of Islam. Karla Yara rasakan Islam Well, I'm so look, oh my lord, you gave me Islam. And I didn't even ask you for it for a zucchini agenda.

00:54:06--> 00:54:08

So give me Gemma and I'm asking you for it.

00:54:09--> 00:54:34

Meaning you were merciful enough to give me Islam without me even having to ask you for it. So give me done that. While I'm asking you certainly you are merciful enough to give me agenda when I'm asking you for gender because you gave me the tools to enter gender into this world. So use of it Islam says fall, you know somehow to a lot. The Originator of the heavens in the earth? No man, do you have a good translation for falta

00:54:36--> 00:54:59

initiated an ambassador the longtime enemy says that I didn't understand this word until I saw two Arabs arguing. I saw two Arab men that were very eloquent arguing because sometimes you look at the original Arabic language. They were arguing about who built the well. So one of them says NF authority the other one says and I have heard, I was the one that originated it. The other one says I was the one that duggins so faltered is

00:55:00--> 00:55:21

Even before creation starts, it's one of the plans are still in the works. Yusuf Alayhi Salam recognizes Allah subhana wa tada doesn't just create and wisdom. But even the planning before the creation is in Divine Wisdom. And he's acknowledging that trust in the loss of hundreds out that this entire time as these plans were made up for my roller coaster of a life.

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

You knew what you were doing, Father, they all somehow to a lot of you knew what you were doing with the creation of the heavens and the earth, and that is far greater than my creation and totally for dunya will ask you, I love this. He says, You are my guardian in this life and the next what's Yusuf Ali Salaam, saying, Look, everyone else at one point in my life was taken away from me. My family was taken away from me. My friends were taken away from me. My you know, everything was taken away from me. But you were always there.

00:55:56--> 00:56:31

You were always there. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He had to live this the the most difficult fashion he was born and his dad was already done, that his mom died when he was six. Then his grandfather who was taking care of him died when he was eight. Then his uncle died. Then the province why some gets married, and his first two children die. And then the province icims uncle who's taking care of him, he dies as well. And then the province license his wife who was the last person he had dies three days after that. And then the province license either children from that woman, they die as well.

00:56:33--> 00:57:13

Everyone's taken away from everyone. Why? So that Allah subhanho wa Taala could teach them to be dependent emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally only on a loss panic attack. Because if your heart is tied to anyone else, that person might be taken away from you one day, may Allah protect our families, and May Allah protect our loved ones, but it's a it's a reality that we could lose them one day. But Allah subhanho wa Taala is always there, you know, something I'm gonna share with you something deeply personal. There's one of my someone that I consider a teacher and his son is very close to me. And some of you might derive who I'm talking about. I'm not going to mention

00:57:13--> 00:57:40

names, but someone who is recently freed from prison from an unjust situation and his father remains in prison, a political prisoner unjustly politically imprisoned. And he is in a terrible situation are Ireland a scholar for no injustice of his own just because a dictator took that country and threw people into prison. This man used to have 30 minutes of visitation with his family once a month.

00:57:41--> 00:57:53

That's all 30 minutes. He's in solitary confinement three weeks a month, and he would have visitation with his family. Once a month for 30 minutes when his son got out and his son is politically active, they took away his 30 minutes from him

00:57:55--> 00:58:08

to punish him. And he wrote a letter to his family. And he said that every month when the appointed time comes, the 30 minutes he said instead of going to the place where I used to meet your mom,

00:58:10--> 00:58:11

he said I read so to use

00:58:13--> 00:58:29

that's all I have for myself. Every month at that time, when I'm supposed to meet you when I used to be ready to meet you. I just opened the door and I read stories and that's the only thing that can relieve my heart of this burden that this is a man who had everything taken away from him

00:58:30--> 00:58:39

and all he asked a lot for antibody for doing what aka You are my Willie, you are my guardian in this world and the next telephony Muslim will happening

00:58:41--> 00:58:43

let me die as a Muslim

00:58:44--> 00:59:00

you know you might be asking yourself number one, the scholars say was use of wishing for death. Is it permissible to ask Allah for death? It's a very interesting discussion is it permissible to ever ask a law for death no profit slice on he once saw a young man that was very depressed

00:59:01--> 00:59:14

and the prophets lie some told him What's wrong and we think that depression is a weakness of a man No There are various levels of depression various causes profits I some seeds this young man he says what's wrong with you? So the auto supply I want to die

00:59:15--> 00:59:54

and the profit slice um, he put his hand on his shoulder and he said, with a smile on his face he said to him and then moto and you're wishing for death while I'm still amongst you. And the prophets lie Some said listen, instead of wishing for death, say to a loss of hundreds Allah Allah you need mechanics and how to hire only whatever funny either candidate without to hire only say to Allah Subhana Allah Oh Allah. Let me live as long as life is good for me and take my life when you know that it's best to take my life. The prophets lie Selim he also said what are your temen Nyan Docomo notes? In Morrison and Allah Allah who and he has data higher. We're in Malmo C and Fernando and he

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

has started the profits licenses. None of you should wish for death. Because you're either a Morrison maybe you're a good dude.

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

And so you'll be able to excel in your good deeds or you're a sinner, and you'll have a chance to go through something or you have a chance to repent or go through a trial in life that will purify you, so don't wish for death. The prophets lie Selim he also said in another Hadith, Leia temen, hadoken Mota Well, it will be human ugly and yet to who in who either not to come in kata, and we're in who lie azido Minamoto Allah Hira. The prophets lie Selim says no one of you should wish for death or ask Allah for it. Because when a person dies, their deeds are put away their ability to do good deeds is put away and nothing increases in the life of the believer except for good so you should

01:00:40--> 01:01:18

not wish for death. The one exception or the two exceptions, is that you can ask Allah subhanaw taala for how you want to die you ask a lot for history only time for a good ending. You can ask Allah subhana wa tada it is permissible and it is in fact sooner to ask Allah to die in Medina. It is assumed not to ask a lot for death in Medina. Amen. I'm gonna hop off it'll be a low on who he used to say alumna and yes Erica Shahada to feasability Baladi, that'd be it all I asked you to be martyr in the city of your prophet and almost died in Salah in the message of the profits license was and was very next to the profits license. Profits license as a menace law I mean come any motive

01:01:18--> 01:01:56

in Medina for the FL whoever amongst you can die in Medina let him do so wish for that make their after that. The prophets lie Selim taught us that we could ask Allah subhana wa tada for Shahada for that for the reward of Shahada even if we're in our beds. The prophets lie some taught us that we can ask Allah for a death on the night or day a Friday because whoever dies on the night or day a Friday is protected from another cover. And the list goes on and on the prophets lysozyme himself made a very interesting Dr. Bhandari salatu salam where either not to be nasty fitna for COVID-19 in ache hiremath tune profits license says Oh Allah. If the fitna is going to increase if you see that

01:01:56--> 01:02:40

fitna is going to increase the trials and tribulations will become unbearable, then bring me to you take me back later methadone without being tested and tried. So there are that you don't ask a lot to take away your life. But you ask Allah subhana wa tada for goodness in your personal kitaen now specifically asking a lot to die as a Muslim. Where do we get this from? It's a legacy of Ibrahim it is a loss of hundreds of houses. Well, a saw behind what all hemo Benny he wacko Yeah, then he in a la hasta luego Medina Fela tomo tune in Muslim on the Abraham Ali Salaam. He gathers his children, the grandmother, the grandfather of use of an ISA and Yaakov the father of use of Elisa and says oh

01:02:40--> 01:03:21

my children, Allah subhana wa tada has chosen for you this religion, so do not die except in a state of Islam. And Allah specifically then says I'm quoting from Shahada. If, however, jacoba notes were you present when your whole body has Salam? Or have you witnessed or have you heard of when the coolgardie his Salaam was afflicted with death? And he called his children and said, Man attack will do and I'm embarrassing. What will you worship after me? Paulo una de la la la la la la, la him, what is marine? What is hot era wahida when a new la who Muslim, they said that we will worship your Lord Our Lord, the Lord of Abraham, the Lord of Ishmael, the Lord of Isaac, the Lord of Yaqoob, the

01:03:21--> 01:03:59

Lord of Jacob, we will worship the Lord that we have been taught to worship, and we are to him. Muslims, we have submitted ourselves to Him and in that there's a beautiful narration. That one the besito the one who gave the glide tidings to iacobelli his salon came to him to inform him that usage has been found. You know, the first question you asked him, he said, Hey, photographer use. In what state did you leave my son use? Color talk to her as an alarmist? Should I left him and he was that Aziz? He's the he's the ruler of Egypt. And Jacobi Salaam, says Lisa and had a look, that's not what I'm asking you.

01:04:00--> 01:04:11

To talk to who are the ad in which religion was he upon when you left him? Call or talk to who Allah Deen in Islam? He said that I left him and he was in a state of Islam. jacoba his Salaam says,

01:04:12--> 01:04:54

Timothy nirma. He said, Now the blessing of Allah is complete. My son is a Muslim, my family is upon Islam. How can a prophet of Allah ask Allah to die as a Muslim? Right? Why even ask them? Why? Because it's the fear of suele time it's the fear of an evil ending, the fear of losing yourself at a time of death when everything goes away from and somehow the scholars they say here that Oh, they don't know the law and we used to ask Allah for protection from committing adultery or stealing. And they asked about it. They said, why would you ask Allah to protect you from adultery and stealing? Like that's way out of out of line here. You're you're the greatest Sahabi and Howdy. How would you

01:04:54--> 01:04:59

ask a lot that he says isn't shaped on a line isn't shape on persistent in his color.

01:05:00--> 01:05:11

And there's something very powerful here the nominal is it. The law says, When your dounia grows, think about it. When your wealth grows, and your kingdom grows, do you become more protective of it or less protective of it?

01:05:13--> 01:05:15

All right, you guys are done. I'm done. All right.

01:05:17--> 01:05:57

When you have more money, do you become more protective or less protective? More? Do you get more paranoid about people taking it away or less paranoid, more paranoid? What's a more precious commodity, your dunya or your deen your religion. So the more you grow in your faith, the more vigilant shavon becomes against and the more those who envy you will grow and things will start to happen in your life. So you should be more protective over your deen, then you should have your dunya so when he's asking a lot to die as a Muslim, he's fulfilling a legacy here and even Ibrahim alayhis salaam and serve to show up verse 78. To 83 rebuttal. He makes a very beautiful throughout

01:05:57--> 01:06:08

the last year, he says to a lot of be heavily hoekman while happening, the sleight of hand Allah grant me wisdom and allow me to follow the righteous. And that brings me to my final point.

01:06:10--> 01:06:16

When the Prophet slicin was dying, because this is again a complete parallel of life of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

01:06:17--> 01:06:19

He shows us all the Aloha and

01:06:20--> 01:06:22

what is the last AR prophets lie summerside

01:06:24--> 01:06:29

and that powerful What's the last Ayah she said as for the last sorta it was sort of the more salaat

01:06:30--> 01:07:07

as for the ayah she said that when the prophets license fever became severe, he kept on saying to Allah subhanho to Allah, ma la Vina Allahu alayhi wa Mina Nabina was the cleaner Shahada was la la haine were hacer una una he cut off a certain Nisa for 69 the prophets lie cinema saying, join me with those who have earned your faith with the prophets with the martyrs with those who are truthful. And what a blessing company that is. The prophets lie Selim when he's leaving this world. He wanted to be with those who he loved the

01:07:08--> 01:07:24

use of wanting to be reunited with the article. He wants to see his father again. He wants to see his grandfather's Hawk. He wants to be with Ibrahim. He wants to be with those that have passed before him. Can you imagine how much the Prophet slicin wanted Khadija again?

01:07:26--> 01:07:30

How much he wanted to be with his family members ago? How much he wanted to be with him.

01:07:31--> 01:08:03

Four days before the Prophet sly son passed away he told him way back when the alarm enemy said oh boy, Heba in America and stuff really Alibaba Allah commanded me to go seek forgiveness for the people and look here in the grave. And he took him away, he been there. And he says, to avoid it, but in the middle of the night, four days before his death, he says, I want you to know Allah has given me a choice to stay amongst my own and be given the keys of this world. And then when it's all over, enter agenda and meet a lot, or I can meet a lot now, you know, a boy he

01:08:04--> 01:08:06

said he had us will not choose us.

01:08:08--> 01:08:17

Don't go to us. We don't want you to leave. You want to stay with us? for profits licenses that I've chosen a lot.

01:08:18--> 01:08:19

And when he's leaving, he's saying

01:08:20--> 01:09:00

Allah the companionship of the Most High the companionship of the Muslim and the prophets, why some is joined with those who he loves. And when he passes away, the desire of every companion thereafter, is I want to be with the prophets license. faulty model the Ilana who he told you would be the first to join me after I pass away, faulty model the Allahu taala and how she dies for six months after the Prophet slicin. She's joined with her father, below the a lot of time when he was passing away. His wife came in the room as he was dying and she said why she was now what a what a day of grief This is what did they have of just horrible fortune? This is he said belko Lee. Well,

01:09:00--> 01:09:03

from what he said no say what a day of joy

01:09:05--> 01:09:21

Mohammed and Masada. Tomorrow I get to meet my beloved ones, Mohammed and his companions. I get to go back to the soul slice I know. I get to go back to the companions. The believing souls are waiting for me. When Earth Nan will be allowed Tyler on who was placed under siege in his house he was fasting.

01:09:22--> 01:09:51

And on the last day he saw a dream of the prophets lie Selim and the prophets licenses Yes, man Helman that rokinon have they've stopped you from drinking water. It was not me I was like yes. So messenger of Allah. I said and then I kind of thought of they stopped you from eating he said yes. So messenger said how am I gonna sell out to the messenger they have they stopped you from praying and my message says yes, so messenger of Allah. The Prophet slicin them says, Don't worry, if not, Tonight you will break your fast with me Wilbekin and Omar. Cliff Little Endian

01:09:53--> 01:09:59

you're fast tonight. We'll break with us. You will eat with us tonight. Not with the people of this world.

01:10:00--> 01:10:38

Dear brothers and sisters, one of the greatest comforts as you are leaving this world is that you are joined with the believing souls that you are greeted by the believing souls Think about your loved ones that have passed away the believers amongst you're greeted by them. They're waiting for you to join that round. And I will back in what the allotted time when he was dying. It was a Monday he said to he shall be allowed tada and as he was dying Are you Yeoman haha what's today she said? And if name Monday he said what date of the prophets lie some day. She said Monday of a worker says in mutsu fell out on Thursday, Ruby. Look, if I'm dying Don't try to resuscitate me and don't wait

01:10:38--> 01:10:40

to bury me till tomorrow I want to go today.

01:10:41--> 01:11:00

He says for in the in the late early when I am in a global hurry. navasota Allah is Allah Allah Islam because the most beloved of nights and days to me are the ones closest to the Prophet slice on them. He said How old was the profit slice on when he died? she said. She said 63 of Rebecca said How old am I? She said 63. He said

01:11:02--> 01:11:15

he said and what was the profit slice I'm wearing when he passed away. She said three quotes. Two of them were from his mom and had charges that were there and an extra cost cloth. He said Bring me my two garments from hedge and an extra cloth and trolled me and

01:11:16--> 01:11:18

he knew he was going back to the prophets lie Selim.

01:11:20--> 01:11:27

And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He says in this authentic hadith, that when the believer passes away,

01:11:29--> 01:11:30

he says yet to be here.

01:11:32--> 01:11:37

The believing souls receive him fella home a shadow for him and it can be hard.

01:11:39--> 01:11:48

And they are more pleased to receive you than your long lost relatives. You know, when you haven't seen someone that you love for so long in this world, and you go to him, I'm sorry, I've gone way over time last Friday.

01:11:50--> 01:11:53

And you go Tim, like I'm going to come to you right now and give you a really big hug.

01:11:54--> 01:12:27

You know, when you see someone that you haven't seen for a really really long time, the love the excitement, the joy when you meet them in the airport, think about if you haven't seen someone for 1020 years, though that's not likely in our generation due to air travel and so on so forth. But someone you haven't seen for a long time. The prophets license said the believing souls will gather to receive you as you enter into that realm with more love and more desire than those long lost relatives and the prophets. lysozyme says yes, aluna Hamada, Allah funan Well, now they will and they start asking so what's going on with that person? What's going on with that person? And then

01:12:27--> 01:12:31

some of them say they're in the who canopies. I'm in dunia Look, he just got here from the dunya.

01:12:33--> 01:12:33

Give him some time.

01:12:35--> 01:12:52

Let's let him relax a little bit. Let's let her relax a little bit. And your brothers and sisters. That is one of the greatest things to look forward to that tonight, or whenever a loss of habitat has decreed death worse, via tonight or tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow, or 2030 years from now

01:12:53--> 01:12:56

that the Prophet sly Southern might receive us

01:12:57--> 01:13:33

that some of the believing souls would be waiting for those that we love and that we've lost. They'll say Elon was Welcome to this room. Welcome to your new life. And that's one of the greatest comforts Allah subhanaw taala gives to us and that's one of the things to ask Allah for. I asked Allah subhanho to Allah, that we live a life that is pleasing to Him, that we're able to overcome any obstacles and any tests that come our way that Allah subhanaw taala allows us to face our grief with patience that Allah subhanho wa Taala allows us to overcome our pleasures with the greater pleasure of pleasing Him. But a loss of Hannah hoods out allows us to be grateful in terms of ease

01:13:34--> 01:14:12

that Allah subhana wa tada allows us to live a consistent life of a son of excellence. And that when we pass away, that the first person amongst the believing souls to receive us is less a little less allowed, and that we're able to break our fast with him and that we're able to drink from his hand and that we're able to be joined with our parents and our spouses and our children and our Masha if an arena and all of the people that we love, we asked the last partner to join us with them in the realm of believing souls and ultimately agenda to further along. I mean, I apologize for taking way too much time. I won't come to Singapore for a very long time so that you guys can be okay. Does

01:14:12--> 01:14:14

that sound like it's luck.
