Bismillahirrahmanirrahim hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah He was in my bathrobe, Israeli surgery westerly Emory, Melissa Ania Ali Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh everyone and welcome to Episode 16 Ramadan reminders I take you to sort of use of

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

a favorite for many is number 90. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the surah in Abu

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

Dhabi while spirit in no law holla you will be your own mercy mean?

00:00:36--> 00:01:27

Allah subhanho wa Taala releases to us a principle from the principles of life, the sunon of Allah subhanho wa Taala with regards to the universe, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Indeed, for the one who chooses the path of taqwa and patience, then Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala will never cause the deeds, the good actions of those who do good to become wasted or lost. Okay? Now, when we read this, if we quickly look at the context of the eye, and and basically this was said by Yusuf Alayhi, salam, when, when finally finally, finally, Allah subhanho wa Taala permitted, that his brothers actually realized that this minister that they've been standing in front of for a period of time, he

00:01:27--> 00:01:41

is actually their very own brother use of the one who they stole from his father's home, when he was an infant, and threw him into a wealth, right, and left him to be taken

00:01:42--> 00:01:59

by strangers as a slave and then sold as a slave in the markets of Egypt. So this ayah was said after years, decades, brothers and sisters in Islam decades, right, because let's say Yusuf Alayhi, Salam was around the age of seven or six,

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

when he was thrown into the well, right, then at the age of 40, he was tested and thrown into prison, he spent some years in prison, let's say he spent seven years in prison. That's 47. And then there were seven years of rainfall. So now we in his fifth decade, he's in his 50s. Right? Right. So we're talking decades after he was abducted by his brothers, finally, they have the standing this face off and use if it is perfect with them over one encounter over the next encounter. And then he asks them a question that, you know,

00:02:36--> 00:03:13

you know, what happened with your brother use, when you never used to be aware of your actions is making an excuse for them. This is beautiful from UCLA salon. Right? Imagine how much patience he had initially after the first or during the first encounter, and then waiting for the next encounter and not exposing himself. Now he's in the position of strength, he's not holding them accountable. He's being just and fair with them, allowing them to come and ask for the food for the food culture that they deserve. Like everyone else, is not saying Do you know who I am and today the tables have turned and so on and so forth is being polite in the best of character making sure everyone gets the

00:03:13--> 00:03:44

views and promising them that if they follow the rules, they'll get their views then he says what happened to this brother of yours use of when you know, when you are young? And you did you did these actions out of ignorance. So Hannah is making an excuse for them. It's beautiful ally. So they realize that Subhanallah This must be useful because no one knows what happens what happened besides us and him? So they said in Nicola and the use of are you indeed use of use of said yes, I am use of and this is my brother, my brother Binyamin, right, his other blood brother, from the same mother and father,

00:03:45--> 00:04:20

who, you know, this event of him being kidnapped, caused a separation between the two he was separated from his brother and he missed his brother as well. So now these other brothers weighing regret and you know, they showed this regret and use of it he said I'm immediately didn't want to see them in regret. He says in omega tacos, we're fighting Allah Allah. This is the principle that indeed the one who has the coin is patient, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will never let the good deeds become Ross no matter how tough things are going brothers and sisters in Islam. You know, you're trying to be nice to someone maintain your character for the sake of Allah, you meet some

00:04:20--> 00:04:54

people in life they do everything in their capacity to make you hate them. They do everything in their capacity to change your character. You'd be nice to be worse. Right? Then you apologize they refuse your apology and make as if you the problem and you only the problem and there was no fault from them. Maybe there was a mistake from you but they make as if 100% of the blame is on you. And then you apologize. They say no, your apology is not sincere. They do everything in their capacity. Right. And you keep hearing things from people that this is what they doing and this is what they saying. This is vanilla greetings from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But always remember, in the Houma

00:04:54--> 00:04:56

yet Taka spear for in Allah Allah is

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

the one who chooses the path

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

taco and chooses the path of patience, Allah subhanho wa Taala will never let their good deeds become wasted right no matter how tough things are getting never you know how many wins they are getting in the wrong against you and people are turning against you and you certain fields of Hana Allah I need to react I need to react I need to react some people will come tell you shavon will tell you that Come on, you know be courageous show you the man show you the woman do something about it. Don't just sit here acting like a miskeen like some impoverished person. As long as you know you follow the Quran and Sunnah in your actions you following that? Which pieces of law carry on with

00:05:34--> 00:06:14

it. And this is what Yusuf Alayhi Salaam did look how he was. We just said how just he was with his with his brothers. Again, during the story use of Elisa was tested as well by the minister's wife, right? When we spoke about this in earlier episodes where he was locked in a room and she tried to, you know, make him do that which was inappropriate. And then she got all the women of the city again to try and enforce this and then he was threatened with jail and he went to jail. He was patient. He was patient. So taqwa we spoken about and we spoke about taco time at the first opening and we were well aware of taco inshallah, to some extent, right, but patience as well is important. And the

00:06:14--> 00:06:47

scholars discussed this Why did Allah mentioned taqwa and patience? So, you know, why is Yusuf Alayhi Salam joining between taqwa and patience, as Allah subhanho wa Taala taught him so they say darkwa is to help you do good, but patience is to stay away from the bat. So you need both, right? It's patience that will lead you to Taco and protect your taco. Right? Doing the good deeds gains you taco, and having patience protects your taco, right? Because now you want to do harm, but you have to fight yourself. You have to be patient not to do it. It's a journey. It's a battle. It's not going to be easy. You know, you want to you want to go out with your friends, even though they're

00:06:47--> 00:06:55

going to do something bad but you want to and it's a desire that you have, you have to be patient and hold yourself down. That's patience. Right and doing that will save you a taco

00:06:57--> 00:07:32

right. So this is why this is the this is an explanation of the scholars as to why we have Taqwa and patients joined together in this particular area. And this is the life of Yusuf Ali Salim and this is the life of the MBR Allahu salatu wa sallam it was even part of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had to maintain taqwa and patience throughout his life. We know how difficult the 13 years of our in the Moroccan period was before they finally went to Medina and then when they went to Medina, they were chased by the courage and the battles was coming coming towards Medina and that to be patience through patient through that as well he had to be he had to deal with

00:07:32--> 00:08:09

all the pledges that were broken by the Jewish tribes around you know, Medina and so on and so forth. Then you have to also you know, take do this, this greatest journey from Mecca to Medina and leave mcraven you don't want to leave Mecca but you have to leave Mecca, right? You have to be patient, and you have to just get on with it. This is this is another show of patients who were stolen by his he was given the option of having them all annihilated he was patient This is no I wasn't sent for this matter of I was sent for is to spread Islam, perhaps the project you will understand he chose to be patient for the greater good. Allah doesn't allow the good deeds of those

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

who do good to become lost. Always remember this, no matter how much they are winning, and you actually upon tells you you are losing know that your deeds are safe with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And eventually, the truth will be known. Yusuf alayhi salam. We spoke about this, when we spoke about the chapter related to evil plots, only falling on the one who plans them and effects them. Right. It was the women of the city who testified to the innocence of use of it was the brothers of use of who testified to his wonderful character and his his faith and his wonderful heart. At the end of the day, it will tend you have to be patient. You got to maintain taqwa, gain taqwa, maintain

00:08:48--> 00:09:13

taqwa, gain it through the good deeds, maintain it through patients in whom he was asked for in Allah Allah you do boxing in a universal principle, a principle from the principles of life. If you have Dakota and you have patients that know and understand your deeds will never ever get wasted. They will never ever get lost, you will reap the fruits of your labor. Right remember this Don't let ego spoil the standard ship on.

00:09:14--> 00:09:44

effect this right make Don't let bad advice and bad counsel destroy this. Remember this principle is sent by Allah He created the universe he governs it. This is a fact that no one can change. We also handle who Allah assist us in our journey towards taqwa and our journey towards patience and perseverance. By the way, this also applies to the concept of self discipline, but perhaps I'll touch a little bit on that at the beginning of tomorrow's episode, inshallah. Until then, salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
