Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:00:15--> 00:00:58

wa salatu salam ala carte de la Vina Mohammed was early he was happy he was seldom at the Sleeman kathira. In Iommi, Delia my bag, respected elders and brothers, my dear mothers and sisters, respective listeners Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. I welcome you again for the second session that we have, as we go through the beautiful story of surah Yusuf. It's a beautiful Sunday morning. Unfortunately, some of the golfers had to cancel the golf games this morning because of the cold. But some others went to the gym, and deliver of exercise which is also important, that has just talked about exercise for a little while. Because Indeed, we need to understand that we as

00:00:58--> 00:01:40

Muslims, have to recognize the amount of the trust that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us in our bodies. Unfortunately, today we find as Muslims we don't really look after, or take care of our bodies, especially when we eat or in regards to the exercises that we are supposed to perform. So we find that we overeat, and we do less exercise. And some other people go to the other extreme whereby they don't eat this stuff themselves and they suffer the various diseases and sicknesses related with the disorder of eating Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us so going to, to do exercises is extremely important. Obviously, the environments that we do it in especially for the ladies is

00:01:40--> 00:02:06

important. Walking is very good, especially for the ladies who have just seen the Islamic school that we have here the large crowds, I don't know if they facilitate the ladies of the Muslim community Indonesia to to walk etc. But if they did, that's a very good idea. And if they don't, maybe they should look in it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us. Now, yesterday we started with this stuff See, and

00:02:07--> 00:02:08

we mentioned

00:02:09--> 00:02:47

how important the surah is, especially in relation to our daily lives. It is a school, as I said yesterday, and we said we will try and go through the Tafseer assimilating and associating the different lessons taught to us. In this chapter, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we will try and assimilate these lessons with the difficulties that we find the Muslim Ummah going through today. Now, obviously Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam is a very honorable Prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is from the prophets that Allah has

00:02:48--> 00:03:34

asked us to take guidance from, to take lessons in goodness from Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I mean fully yet he the Buddha was when a man or a yoke or use of like a lady in a huddle Allah subhanho Makati that from the offspring of Ibrahim alayhi salatu. Salam, ala Salatu was Salam and Solomon and a tube and use of adding salatu salam, these are those are the offspring and prophets that were guided and we should take guidance from them May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who truly understand this guidance. Of course it is a great Neeraj from Allah subhanho wa Taala that we are from the home of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam first and foremost, but

00:03:34--> 00:03:59

as we go through the different communities and hamdulillah Allah has has made it easy for myself especially whereby have been given the opportunity to meet different communities and different societies in especially, we're talking about or in relation to the youth of the different societies and we see that

00:04:01--> 00:04:40

we have Masha Allah, a very big Muslim Ummah, especially in regards to the youth. However, what I've realized, you know, after meeting these different communities, different societies and seeing the different youth that we have to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for being Muslim first and foremost. But if Allah subhana wa Allah guides us after granting us Islam, then we have to thank him double and three times more. And in fact many times more today we have our youth who are Muslims by name but totally misguided our altavilla Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us, they are suffering the evils from the environments that they are living in and indeed we are living a life which is a test Allah

00:04:40--> 00:05:00

subhanho wa Taala has placed us here for a limited amount of time. Thereafter, we will return to Allah subhanho wa Taala and answer for our actions on Earth. This is not a place of abode which a Muslim or anybody will stay forever indeed this world will come to an end May Allah subhanho wa Taala take us to him upon through guided

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

And

00:05:02--> 00:05:42

many a time have spoken about this, you know, the parents have to revise themselves, especially in regards to the upbringing of the children in your parent tend, or they tend to neglect the responsibility of upbringing. You know, being a mother, being a father is a very great responsibility, and inshallah we'll cover it as we're going to through this Tafseer. I have no doubt, then, that in it, there is a lesson for the parents as well as the children. Now, just as a recap, from what we took yesterday, we discussed the reasons for revelation, and we mentioned that, from the books of deceit, two reasons have been given. We mentioned that the one was the Jews going

00:05:42--> 00:05:48

to the idolater, the machete Kuhn and telling him that go and ask Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam,

00:05:49--> 00:06:29

about use of Allen salatu salam, because use of his from the brothers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, to say, same family lineage. And if he doesn't know then we will have exposed him because also use of adding salatu salam was one of the prophets of the Jews, he was from the descendants of his help Allahu Salatu was Salam. And inshallah, as we begin today's lesson, we will be discussing the family lineage of use of Allah. So that was Allah Salam. So they said, Go and ask him about usage. If he doesn't know we would have exposed him not to be a prophet. And if he doesn't know, and behind your people's backs, they come or he comes to us, meaning Bani Israel, and asked us

00:06:29--> 00:07:06

regarding use of we would have exposed him again, and I didn't mention that, after everything, Allah subhanho wa Taala exposed them. Because Allah subhana wa Taala said, You or your people didn't know about the story before we revealed it to you. And Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the surah in its entirety. And that's one of the reasons why we said the sooner is unique. It's a story from beginning to end that speaks about the events that happen to one prophet. So that is one of the reasons without going into great detail. The second reason we discussed was that obviously we know the Muslims were going through a difficult time the new Muslims, they accepted Islam, they were

00:07:06--> 00:07:45

being oppressed by the Quran. They were being oppressed by the disbelievers. They were sanctioned. They had to go to Abyssinia Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was sanctioned as well. And you went to five and he was oppressed over there. He thought after not getting any hope or not having no signs of hope in Mecca. After all that who didn't go to five maybe we'll get a better or a better response from them. But they oppressed him. they mocked Him, they cheered him. They stoned him. Allah subhanaw taala protect us all. And he was obviously oppressed. He came out of the very sad, demoralized as the Muslims are going through a difficult time it was a very difficult period.

00:07:45--> 00:08:07

As we said yesterday, the surah was revealed also towards the end of the Macan period revealed in Makkah, according to the majority of the rhythm of Tafseer, it was towards the end of the second period, so they went through a difficulty here was Khadija the Allahu Allah he had lost Abu Talib. So the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu magma in came to him and said, Yeah Rasul Allah narrate to us and

00:08:09--> 00:08:36

as I said yesterday, normally we find from a story with good moral teaching a bit of inspiration and a bit of you know, something to boost ourselves something to give us hope. So the answer was no loss Allah Allah wa sallam to narrate to them and Allah subhanho wa Taala said nano, the cassava cassava sauce will reveal to you the best of stories. So that was in regards to the reasons of revelation then we discuss briefly

00:08:38--> 00:09:23

about the separated letters, because Allah subhanho wa Taala began the pseudo Alif Lam era and we said that going through the books of Tafseer we found at least 15 reasons why Allah subhanho wa Taala actually separated these letters from the most common speech of the mouth of C regarding the separation is that Allah subhanho wa Taala used 14 of the 28 letters in the Arabic language separately, you know, when we said Alif Lam Meem and if lamb or Ah yes, in moon etc, as if Allah subhanho wa Taala is challenging the disbelievers saying that look, these are letters that you read, these are letters that you use to write these are the letters that you put together to make

00:09:23--> 00:09:57

beautiful speech and poetry. We challenging you with the same letters that you use to come up with a Quran which we said is totally impossible. Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised to protect the Quran and in fact the Quran is in a level of its own, especially in regards to the grammar in regards to its expressiveness, the Bulava, the morphology etc. There is no comparison Nothing can compare to it and nothing will and we can even swear by that. So we discussed that. Then we also mentioned from the i O Allah subhanho wa Taala said

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

that in Angela Khurana

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

Aarabi that we reviewed you the score and in Arabic we said we derived from that many rulings we don't want to go through everything again but obviously it's good to summarize, especially for those who might be taking notes we said that the Quran exists in its exist in its Arabic form. A translation of the of the Quran cannot be called Quran or Quran it cannot be called a Quran it is called a translation of the Quran because in the translation men is involved. Man is involved and men is prone to error Allah subhanho wa Taala is free from error. And a Muslim scholar who deduces rulings from the Quran is not allowed to deduce rulings from a translation of the Quran, but from

00:10:42--> 00:11:22

the Arabic version itself, as it is understood in the Arabic language. Then we spoke about the actual meaning in regards to us analysis. Whether it is whether surah Yusuf is actually the best of all stories or whether Allah subhanho wa Taala says absolute apostles, meaning all the stories in the Quran are the best of all stories that Allah have mentioned, two different reasons. In any case, all the stories in the Quran respected listeners are of great moral teaching. We take lessons from them, we take heat from them, we take inspirations from them, and we aspire ourselves by reading them May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those and towards the end dimensioned an

00:11:22--> 00:12:00

important aspect that Today we speak about how we read so many books. I mean, we can mention names. I mentioned a few names yesterday, something unnamed, which comes to mind right now Jeffrey Archer, john Christian. I mean, in a Blyton, we can mention all the names of books that especially our young Muslims are reading and reading and reading big, bulky, bulky books, I mean, the Harry Potter so it's not a small task to read those kinds of books, but they have so much interest, or we as parents also have interest in reading these books. However, how many times have we actually read the Quran? Allah subhanho wa Taala made it easy for us by making it

00:12:02--> 00:12:43

or by allowing it to be translated. And today we have a translated version of it in the English language and various other languages. How many of us have actually sat down and actually read this translation cover to cover knowing that it is the Constitution of a Muslim? It is a book of knowledge. It is the light of a believer at the end of the day, we are only here for 60 years. We live this 60 years 70 years that Allah subhanho wa Taala grants us if Allah subhanaw taala grants us a long life today people are dying young. I mean, we hear of people having heart attacks as early as 30 May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a long and healthy life full of his obedience. I mean, so

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

how many of us have actually taken the time to actually read our own book, and this says a lot about the Muslim Ummah today, the interest we have in our Deen in educating ourselves in regards to our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala in regards to the do's and the don'ts and the don'ts that Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed on us remember, when Islam came it came with the aspect of do and don't do La ilaha illa Allah means do and don't do for Adam and in salatu salam It was not to do he wasn't supposed to eat from the tree.

00:13:14--> 00:13:54

And for he believes it was to do he was supposed to bow down to Adam and in Salatu was Salam so he didn't do it, please didn't do and he was cast out of genda and he was cursed and admiring salat wa salam was supposed not to do and he did. Thus breaking the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala at the end of the day, dear listeners we are not slaves of our desires. We are the slaves of one Allah azza wa jal, the creator, the Sustainer the nourisher we find ourselves today being totally negligent of the do's and don'ts that Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed on us. Remember, this world is the prison of the believer in the prison you live but you are governed by certain do's and don'ts and

00:13:54--> 00:14:16

it's the paradise of a disbeliever because they are not confined to do's and don'ts. They do what they want, when they want how they want and then in the era, there is nothing for them. We Allah subhanho wa Taala granted us this life. And in fact he says in the Lashkar Amina Amina and fusuma Malanga that Allah has bought your lives, your health, your happiness, everything from you, because he has given you 10.

00:14:19--> 00:14:37

So really, we find ourselves a chemistry lab happy we have good children, we have good health, etc. This is the mercy from Allah that after he bought it from us, he still gives it back to us out of his mercy. And on top of that, if we are good, he cancels Jenna. So how merciful Allah subhanho wa Taala is in reality respected Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't need us

00:14:39--> 00:15:00

to be helping God Allah subhanho wa Taala says that if we wanted we could have gotten rid of you in seconds quicker in the blink of an eye and come with a new creation who will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as Allah subhanho wa Taala should be worshipped or medallic Allah Allah he be as he is, and that is not difficult for a lot of publicity. Well jalama Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the

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

Understanding.

00:15:02--> 00:15:46

So yesterday we stopped just moving on with the deceit at the aspect of the lineage of use of adding Salatu. Salam, we said, that use of is the son of Yaqoob, who is the son of his Huck, who was the son of Ibrahim, who was titled Khalid Allah, Allah, his Salatu was Salam. And we said that Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam had two sons. One son's name was his Huck and the other one was smelly, and his salat wa salam. And we again mentioned that all Prophets came from the lineage of his heart. alayhi salatu was Salam except one prophets. All other profits came from the family lineage of his half Allah His salat wa salam except one Prophet, and that one Prophet was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi

00:15:46--> 00:16:32

wa sallam who came from the lineage of his Marielle alayhi salatu was Salam. Now, Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam used to be in Iraq. That was the area that he used to be in. And when the jealousy struck and happened between the wife of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam and the maid hajer of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, the maid servant, Ibrahim left is married Allah salat wa salam and his mother Hatcher in the area known as maca. And we know the story of turning between Safa and Marwa and the well of Zamzam. That's a story related to how Geron is married. Allahu salatu salam. So there was the jealousy aspect between the wife of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam and the maid servants of Ibrahim

00:16:32--> 00:16:49

alayhi salatu was Salam and Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam left Iraq and went up to the point of the place known as Mecca, and left which was a barren land and left smilie salat wa salam and his mother over there. Now, as a point of mentioned,

00:16:51--> 00:16:54

this story in reality is the beginning of Israel.

00:16:55--> 00:17:07

The story in reality is the beginning of the new Israel because they are the descendants of iacobelli Salatu was Salam yopu Bari salat wa salam who is the father of use of adding salatu salam had 12 children

00:17:08--> 00:17:13

and thus, the 12 different types of Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I shall not

00:17:15--> 00:17:41

be 12 different types. So Allah subhanho wa Taala promised his Huck and Yaqoob that Palestine was theirs, as long as they believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala and the last prophet, Allah promised his health and the boob. And as I said, this is the beginning of the new Israel, that Palestine was this as long as they believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala and the last prophet.

00:17:42--> 00:18:22

Now when they rejected Isa adding salatu salam when de nuestra Rijeka de salud salat wa salam, these favors were taken away from them, because remember, the condition was, you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and the last prophet so when they rejected Isa, la Salatu, salam, these favors were taken away from them. So this is as far as the lineage of usefulness. So that's awesome. I hope I haven't complicated things. But this is just to give us a brief understanding to the reality of the beginning of Israel and who has use of it Salatu was Salam and Yaqoob. Remember, we said that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam referred to him as maybe even maybe even maybe even Levy, a

00:18:22--> 00:18:56

prophet was the son of the Prophet was the son of the prophet who was the son of holly Lola Ibrahim alayhi salatu was salam, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam refer to use of Allah salatu salam s Karim, even Kareem, even Kareem, even Kareem because Kareem Vinnie Yusuf Ali salatu wa sallam son of Kareem, who was jacoba salat wa salam, son of Kareem, who was is how it is salat wa salam, son of holly Lola, who was Kareem as well. Ibrahim alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. So Yusuf Ali salatu salam, continuing after discussing the lineage now tells his father

00:18:59--> 00:19:03

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, masala kasyno cosas de mio hanaa la casa para

00:19:04--> 00:19:48

oblique let me know how you're feeling. And we also mentioned the aspect of half and not meaning ignorant but meaning that you weren't aware of the story. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says that from amongst the stories we narrate to you, oh prophet of Allah is the story when Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam. When Yusuf alayhi salaatu wa sallam said to his father, oh, my father, indeed I have seen in a dream 11 stars and the sun and the moon. I've seen that I've seen 11 stars, the sun and the moon prostrating down to me in Neeraj A to A Haida Ashura, Kolkata or shumsa will honor it to whom Lisa Jean so use of narrate his dream to his father 11 stars, the sun and the moon

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

prostrating to him now, you're gonna have to see the majority of them have mentioned that they live in stars. As recently we know I told you the story begins with the with the dream and ends with the translation of the dream and

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

At the end of the dream, Allah subhanho wa Taala interprets his dream for us, meaning the reality comes into play with 11 stars turned out to be the brothers and the sun and moon,

00:20:10--> 00:20:50

representing the mother and father. Now, majority of the time after she mentioned that the sun here depicted the mother and the moon depicted the father because in the Arabic language, obviously, it is a language which has gender casing, so everything is feminine and masculine. And in the Arabic language. Although the sun is big, huge and bright, it carries a feminine gender and the moon. Even though it takes light from the sun, it carries a male gender masculine gender. However, some other allama actually said that the moon depicted the mother and the son depicted the father Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best.

00:20:52--> 00:21:30

So use of speaks about his dreams. Now dreams respected elders and brothers, my dear mothers and sisters in the centers, the dreams of the prophets are actually revelation. They're just not any normal dream that you and myself would see. And inshallah tomorrow, as a point of interest, I'll come to you with a bit of research regarding dreams, what we should make of them, which dreams we should take into consideration what we should do if we see a good dream, a bad dream, etc. We'll discuss that tomorrow. So for those of us, maybe we could pass the message on to the others, it might be a point of interest because we always get frequent questions regarding dreams. However,

00:21:30--> 00:21:35

dreams of the prophets, dear listeners, I actually revelation, a meme of poverty mentioned the narration by a bus.

00:21:36--> 00:21:57

And even a bus obviously was a prominent Sahaba well known, especially to those studying. He was from the heart of the Sahaba of the Allahu Allahu majima in from the learned group of this habit of the Allahu anhu. As he says, the dreams of the prophets are revelations. Remember, Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam saw himself slaughtering his son.

00:21:58--> 00:22:20

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Surah Suffolk Ibrahim alayhi salatu wa sallam sees himself slaughtering his son others just wasn't a mere dream that you wake up and say, Oh, I had a bad dream. It was a revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in niara Phil Minami Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us but Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam said, Please marry darling salat wa salam in the autofill Minami

00:22:21--> 00:22:32

fungal metadata, that indeed I have seen in my sleep that I am actually slow to slaughtering you. So what do you have to say about it? Now, obviously, he wasn't asking his son for permission here.

00:22:33--> 00:23:11

He wasn't asking you for permission that look, this is what I've been instructed what you view as if he's asking his permission. He's just testing him and seeing what his reaction would be to it. And it's my la salatu salam with the great character and belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Oh my father do as you have been instructed certegy duni insha Allah Mina Swabian inshallah you will find me from those who are patient, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us offspring who are obedient to the parents and before being obedient to the parents obedient to the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as mentioned by Chateau de la Anna in the first few hadith

00:23:11--> 00:23:43

of Bokhari used to see dreams six months before his prophethood so six months before Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to him in the cave, he used to see dreams. And whatever he used to see in his dream used to become a reality immediately, it would actually come true. In another Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions that dreams are one over 46 and that's a fraction of prophethood one over 46 of prophethood. Now, some of the Anima have actually tried to explain

00:23:44--> 00:24:07

this fraction, found in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And some of them have said that look, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was receiving divine revelation for 23 years because his prophethood was 23 years. So he was receiving real inspiration for a period of 23 years. And six months before that, as we seen in the hadith of eyeshadow della Juana, which is authentic and in Buhari

00:24:09--> 00:24:22

six months before that, he used to see dreams, which would come through. So six divided by 23 gives us a fraction of one over 46 and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best so this is a brief

00:24:23--> 00:24:55

lesson in dreams for us that they actually revelations of the prophet in another Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that nothing has been left after prophet with divine revelation except MOBA. shirat. When he was asked what is MOBA shirat he said, Good dreams now inshallah tomorrow, we will before beginning with the deceit, a little lesson discussing the dreams as I mentioned before the different topics that really we find the public questioning today, after that, or before reading the next. What do we learn from this use of adding salatu salam sees a dream.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

What does he do? He approaches his father

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

This and just when we started the Tafseer today we were mentioning about parents are bringing their children the relationship between parents and their children. And I said that inshallah, I have hope that in this Tafseer, we will find a lesson in it from this story of use of La salat wa salam, we will actually find a lesson in regards to the Father and Son relationship in regards to the parent and child relationship. Here it is respected parents,

00:25:30--> 00:26:11

Yusuf alayhi salatu salam didn't feel uncomfortable going to his father telling him Oh, my father, I've seen this in my dream, please assist me with it, etc. This shows the open door policy that that the father of use of adding salatu salam who was jacoba salatu salam had with his son, today, fathers unfortunately, find themselves creating this barrier between them and the children. That's one extreme, or they enter the other extreme way, they can't even speak to the children, they let them do what they want. They feel that guiding them at this age, or at the age that they are, would be a means of them rebelling later on, etc, we find this an Islamic and meaning thinking which is

00:26:11--> 00:26:14

beyond somebody's sense bit beyond common sense.

00:26:16--> 00:26:55

Islam, as I mentioned in many of my lectures before, when we are dealing with parenthood and upbringing of children, Islam, dear listeners, is not a religion that tells us that look, go and get married, and then learn how to be a good husband. It's a trial and error session, go and get married, and through trial and error, learn how to be a good husband. Indeed, Islam doesn't teach us this. And Islam in the same sentence doesn't tell us that listen, have a child. And then through trial and error, learn how to bring up this chat. This is this is not the teaching of Islam, Islam, respected elders and brothers is a dean, which is complete, it is a way of life Rasulullah

00:26:55--> 00:27:38

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never left any stone of goodness Unturned, except that he turned it into it to us. He turned it and taught it to us. It is we are not thirsty in learning from the wealth left behind after the death of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which is knowledge. So we find parents today, going to one extreme whereby they feel the relationship with a son or a daughter with a child has to be this kind of King and servant relationship where don't do it as I do, do as I say, I commend you, you follow. And this is a policy that is not islamically correct, especially in the age of science and technology, especially in the time that we live in we our children are influenced

00:27:38--> 00:27:47

by viruses outside the home. And in the UK, if we look at if we look at the situation in the West, we find over there, that children have

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

the abilities to go to the various civil services such as the police in case their parents try to discipline them and teach them. So what happens is, parents are reluctant, they are not willing to try ulterior ways and different motives. And we find these children going astray. And when when it's too late, and we try to bring them back, we find them being truly in in the true Word or the true sense of the word rebellious, and they rebel. And then they go and use different services available to them, and actually end up being an operation to the parents, how many a parent today, and this is also for the parents listening to this broadcast right now, how many of us actually look at our

00:28:28--> 00:28:37

children and find them to be the coolness of our eyes, you know, Alhamdulillah, we, many a parent has approached

00:28:39--> 00:28:42

seeking assistance in dealing with children.

00:28:43--> 00:29:26

And when I look at these parents, I don't think for one moment when this mother and his father had the child or when he was just born. And he got a slap at the bottom it began to cry that this mother or father for one moment, thought that this child would ever be the depression. In fact, every time they looked at this little child growing it was the coolness of the eyes. However, now, years down the line, after failing drastically in upbringing, this child, and he's rebelling against his parents, we find parents looking at their own children, and those children are being the sorrow and distress of the heart. Now, in reality, this is something which we that needs to be looked at. I

00:29:26--> 00:29:40

mean, it's something which exists, we have to point it out and parents have to make amends. At the end of the day, as I always say that a child's mind is like a glass of water. A child's mind is like a glass of water. When the glass is full of water.

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

We say it's full of a compound known as h2o is full of water. But if we empty the glass of water, is the glass full or is it empty? So some might say it's empty, and others might say it's full. In reality respected parents. The glass is actually full. It's not full

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

have water. This time, it's full of a

00:30:04--> 00:30:44

it's not full of h2o, which is water, it's food within. And your child mind, your child's mind is just like that your child's mind, my dear mother's mighty your father's will never, ever, ever remain empty. If you as a mother, if you as a father, don't fill your child's mind, that mind will never ever remain empty. The television at home will do the filling for you, and his bed friends at school will do the filling for you. So don't ever feel that your child is young. Today, we live in an age of Science and Technology. When we were little, and used to cry, our parents might have come up to us with a little rattle. And these to wrestle this, this rattle and the sound that it used to

00:30:44--> 00:31:24

make would stimulate our minds and it would interest us and we would be interested in this battle. Today try taking a wrestled to this child to a newly born baby was six months, seven months, eight months old and say rattling is for this child, he or she is not interested. A child nowadays needs a little computer console that you push buttons and electronic sounds come out those sounds actually stimulate a child's mind now and this is proof of the advancement of the children nowadays, they are maturing at a quicker age, they are becoming more understanding at a quicker age. Don't ever feel that your child is too young. When it comes to his upbringing. Don't ever feel that your child is

00:31:24--> 00:31:59

too young. Before you connect him correction starts. And in fact, the upbringing of your child, my dear mother doesn't begin when your child is five or six years old. It begins from the time that your child is in the womb of his mother. It begins from the time when your child is in you or mother in your stomach. That's the time that child rearing and upbringing actually begins. You have to watch what you eat, you have to watch how you speak. You have to watch your diet, you have to watch what you listen to, you know, we find so many times before children two years old, they don't understand what is Salah, but they see the pain as reading salah and they go stand next to the

00:31:59--> 00:32:12

parent and he he or she will do Rico will do sudo sh there and they'll get up and they're copying this motion. They don't know what on earth they are doing. But because they are seeing their parents doing it, what happens they follow, isn't it.

00:32:14--> 00:32:47

So if you in the home as a mother and father negligent of your children, first and foremost, they'll grow up to be negligent of their children if Allah doesn't guide them. The second aspect is if you listen if you grow up with music in your home, a vulgar language in your home, you know oppression if the mother and father not getting along properly, this will have detrimental effects to the child at an early stage. And he'll grow up with his perceptions perceiving that that's the way life is and then what happens in the future. We have a bunch of children who have grown up to be unworthy citizens of the communities that they live in. And this is the biggest thing we are trying to avoid

00:32:47--> 00:33:13

especially as a Muslim, a Muslim is always a contributed to society. A Muslim always contributes to society. And what we need is for our Muslim youth to be contributors to society, worthy citizens of the communities that we live in. today. Unfortunately, because we are an educated and they come from homes that they didn't receive foundational upbringing. We find them to be followers instead of leaders and thus the backwoods, the backwardness of the Muslim Ummah today.

00:33:15--> 00:33:24

If you practice your deed respected elders and brothers and we're not trying to be biased and say Dean is the only thing but it's a reality. It is the only thing Islam is not just

00:33:25--> 00:34:03

fasting and going for Hajj. It's a way of life, the way you conduct yourself in every avenue. No University is going to teach your child how to be a human being. No University is going to teach your child good manners. It is Islam that governs the way you conduct yourself as a servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is something that has to be understood. So parents, and this is all what we're speaking from when we understand how use Valley salatu salam went to jacoba salatu salam, the open door policy, parents need to open the doors and be more lenient towards the children. Give them the time, don't overwork yourself and feel that that's how you can best raise your child by bringing

00:34:03--> 00:34:43

in so many hands, so many pounds, so many dollars, so many euros so that you can provide your child with the best education and the best PlayStation, the latest one and the latest xbox etc. And because you're so busy giving your time to the material standing of your child, you forget giving him foundational assets, which is your time of bringing him May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding. So we learn from use of Allah salatu salam going to his father, and telling him of the dream which he had the open door policy that should exist between fathers and their children and mothers as well. And mothers and their children as well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the

00:34:43--> 00:34:51

understanding. We also learned from here, that we should not narrate our dreams to those who would get jealous of us.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

So what happens is Yusuf alayhi salatu salam with open door policy that iacobelli salatu salam had

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

He went to him and he narrated the dream after that iacobelli salatu salam advising his child says yada yada. And this again falls under the explanation that I was giving to snap it in the open door policy son talks to Father, Father then advises the chat, you have been a Yella toxin, aka Allah hortica for Yaki doula Takeda that, oh, my son, don't narrate this dream of yours to your brothers, because they will plan an evil plot against you. So we learn from here, first and foremost, the father son relationship, we spoke about it, we don't want to go into it again, then we are also taught that we shouldn't relate our dreams to those who would get jealous of us.

00:35:40--> 00:35:48

And in the same context, we shouldn't write our achievements or plans or programs that we may be involved in. And this is important.

00:35:49--> 00:36:25

Because nowadays, if you go out boasting about the certain things that you may be achieving, and doing, you might find that people would step in and put a stop to it, maybe through the evil eye, or maybe through jealousy, they would pull some strings, etc. And just saying this now reminds me of a saying of the self. And in fact, some of them are happy within, within the scholars have had it actually mentioned that this thing is not just a thing of the self, it's a metaphor to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And it's actually a teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The thing is studying Allah Parvati Howard, how did you compete man?

00:36:26--> 00:37:10

For in nakoula, venia, mighty Max udom that assist yourselves in the things that you do by keeping them a secret? assist yourselves in the things that you do? By keeping them a secret for every owner of a blessing is envied. And this is a fact. Today we find jealousy spinning the Muslims because it's the work of the Muslims and is using this discipline as Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us we find Muslims who are so jealous of the fellow Muslim Brotherhood, Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed and they end up saying why him and not me are the villa Why has Allah subhanho wa Taala given him and not given me so it's there you know Allah Kava, Eg, man, that assist yourselves in the

00:37:10--> 00:37:17

things that you do by keeping them a secret jacoba Lee salatu salam being a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala recognize the

00:37:18--> 00:38:01

lessons from this dream and he knew that Allah subhanho wa Taala has great plans for Yusuf Ali salatu salam. So he recognized the meaning of the dream that indeed use of Allah salat wa salam is going to have great status and great honor Allah has something big in store for this boy. So he said he in essence, he said that you know, Alibaba, how did you come keep it a secret, don't reveal it to your brothers, even though they are your brothers for your ketola Qaeda, they will plan against you then he said in a shavon insanity I do a movie in that indeed she upon to mankind is a great enemy. So it's not from mankind, just to go out and attack their own brothers. But weakness of Eman and

00:38:02--> 00:38:32

shape on strong grip over them could lead them to do something that they wouldn't even want to do if they really thought about it again. So he tells his son and this is a father advising his child how many fathers have in this day and age actually advise their children again shape and advising them how great an enemy he is, in misshapen and insanity I do. I do a movie in the father of use of it. So that was me advising him that indeed a pawn to mankind is a great enemy. So he respected elders and brothers, we are taught shape and position in regards to men.

00:38:35--> 00:38:51

Now, it's no secret to us, that the enmity between shavon and the children of Adam began a long time ago, a very long time ago from the time that Allah subhanho wa Taala created Adam and in salat wa salam and shavon got a very proudly and said, and I

00:38:52--> 00:38:56

mean, he got a very proudly and said, I am better than him.

00:38:57--> 00:39:07

I am better than him. So this pride that he showed and he refused to answer the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:39:08--> 00:39:52

spoke to the enmity between Adam and Eve salat wa salam and his children and shavonne and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us chiffons message to us in sort of law which is in the eighth of June shavon says some Malachi and Nahum mean benei ad him when we see him and a man him one Shama ilium, La Ilaha Illa. Allah shaytan is telling Allah subhanho wa Taala that I will attack them, I will come to them. I mean, being at him from the front of him and from behind while I'm a man him from the right, or inshallah ilium and from the left, when I take you to Rome, Shakira, you will find the majority of them from those quano thankful. So Chapin's intent is only to attack us and spin us and

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

we find him today. sparking our hearts of jealousy against our own brothers, not our own Muslim Brothers but against our own blood brothers.

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

How many times have we heard a black brother cursing his own brother from his mother, the son of his own mother, he's cursing him and saying that today and I will be late to statement which shouldn't even be said, but it's a fact many a time we have heard this that if I saw my brother, my black brother and an animal on the street, I would love to help anyone out. This is this is something this is a statement that is not worthy for a Muslim to speak or to say. So we need to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala protection from shavon first and foremost, and especially from jealousy, also the loss of Allah Allah Selim said Yeah, come on hazard that stay away from jealousy don't even come yet. Yakumo

00:40:42--> 00:40:48

hazard for in hazard. Yeah, cool Hassan at Kamata, Karuna, because indeed

00:40:50--> 00:41:34

jealousy eats away the good deeds. Jealousy eats away the good deeds just as fire eats out, filed. Just as fire eats up and burns fresh firewood. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala his protection indeed jealousy respected elders and brothers is a reality. We need to stay away from it we need to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala his protection we don't want to go on PM, standing in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala after reading years of Salawat and giving millions in psycho art and performing so many hedge but then we spent our lives being jealous of our Muslim brothers and Muslim sisters speaking out against them, breaking relationships with them. Unity is something which is beloved to

00:41:34--> 00:41:55

Allah subhanho wa Taala and unity is something which is most hated to shed upon. Unfortunately we find the Muslim Ummah today specializing in pleasing shavon and that is disunity and displeasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is to be united Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, I personally will be happy let me and hold on to the rope of Allah subhanho wa Taala together in a hadith that

00:41:56--> 00:41:57

says that in the La

00:41:58--> 00:42:36

Jolla krahula. Allah loves for you three things and he hates for you three things and from the things that he loves is he loves you to be united holding on to the rope of Allah subhanho wa Taala together with Allah subhanho wa Taala make us united make us be from amongst those who look at the goodness of our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters make us from amongst those that when we are indifferent, we agree to disagree rather than always being in disagreement and moving further away from each other. I mean, so jacoba salatu salam says don't tell your brothers off this dream indeed Chapin is a clear enemy. Then

00:42:38--> 00:43:22

Allah says what can be called a book well you are a limo come into a howdy ARE YOU TIM Mooney Mehta who Alec earlier co come at a Mahalla boy come in public, Ibrahima is Huck inara, Baka hakimullah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that invest will your Lord choose you and teach you the interpretations of narratives, the interpretations of your dreams, and some of them have Tafseer have said here that we'll add it also means the knowledge of prophethood so it means interpretations of dreams and the knowledge of prophethood the the aspects in regards to Revelation because remember, he was gonna be a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala and was going to receive ye and

00:43:22--> 00:44:08

direct revelations and Allah subhanho wa Taala says that and thus Allah will also complete his favor upon you and upon the family of iacobelli salatu salam, as Allah subhanho wa Taala completed upon those before you who are Ibrahim Alayhi salat wa salam and is hot Allah His salatu salam in Rebecca alleman Hakeem indeed your Lord Allah but Allah is the most knowledgeable the most knowing and the most wise. When Allah subhanho wa Taala says la parte de Cana Fie us Yousuf away what he actually said. Now yesterday we had the recitation about this. Today we will, we've covered obviously, the procedure of the recitation we had yesterday, we will now hear the recitation as I explained the

00:44:08--> 00:44:16

methodology will hear the Quranic recitation and thereafter we will inshallah try and do that to see if so, let us just listen to the
