Series: Sajid Ahmed Umar - Surah Yusuf
Rahmanir Rahim. Allah He will hamdulillah he was salat wa salam ala rasulillah Hema minako Latina Muhammad Abdullah he early he was happy he was a limiter Sleeman kathira Nina Medina, my back, respected listen as a Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Welcome once again to yet another lesson as we go through the Tafseer of surah Yusuf. Today is Monday, the seventh of August 2006. Just before going again into the procedure, just a few questions that were asked this reading the question student in the Arabic language, okay. There's a student who is currently at the beginning of his lessons in the Arabic language and is asking that how come in the in the surah Allah subhanho
wa Taala uses the word up, which means father and then after that he refers to grandparents, oh, I'm gathering he's talking about Allah subhanho wa Taala said karma. Allah means. Rahim Allah is Huck. That's what I'm gathering in the Arabic language. You are allowed to use the word up and actually related to your grandparents. It is allowed just as we hear, or as Allah subhanho wa Taala said milliliter. avi can Ebrahim meaning the way of your father Ibrahim, and obviously he's meaning your grandfather, and as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and even Abdullah, that I am the grandson of Abu Talib, but he used the word Eben so in the Arabic language the word Eben obviously
is translated in the English language as son however, it can be used as a grandson and as well as other which usually is translated as father it can be used as a grandfather, and this is the depth of the Arabic language. I hope that answers the question. The next few spoke beautifully against jealousy. How can we stop it is a very good question. Yesterday we're speaking about the aspects of jealousy how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has warned us against jealousy. Jealousy, dear listeners can be stopped in several ways. The first way obviously is to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We have to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and place our trust in Allah azza wa jal and
obviously also we can stop it by practicing tawheed if we understand the criteria of a believer and his relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no room for us to be jealous of one and all. Allah subhanho wa Taala is Allah honey al Hamid, he is the most rich and he's he um he is the most praised, He grants favors to him, he wishes and he will ask us and we cannot question him. He is Allah. Allah, Allah had the one there is no one worthy of worship except one Allah. So by understanding this, definitely it puts an end to us actually feeling jealous or even opening it puts it closes the door that Chapin actually uses in trying to create envy and jealousy in us towards
others. And obviously another aspect is the teaching of Islamic Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that when it comes to your deen, look at those who are better than you look at those who fast more. Look at those who practice the young lady who actually spent the night up worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when it comes to your world, the affairs your material well being and your financial standing, look at those who are or who have less than you today. It's the opposite. When it comes to Dean. We take comfort in the little that we do thinking that others don't do as much as much that we do for example, we say really threes follow us and the other people only only reading
one so we are better. And we give so much in charity others are not even giving that much so we are doing better and when it comes to the dunya we are not content with or when it comes to the worldly affairs. We are not content with what Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us. We are always looking at those above us and Allah subhana wa Taala said in Salah Holla Holla that inside has been created impatiently. He is never content, he is never thankful and this is why it was important that when it comes to the to the material well being and financial standing, look at that which you have. And thank Allah subhanho wa Taala For indeed they are those who have less than you. They have those who
don't have homes. Even if you are eating one meal a day there are people who don't even have a meal a day to eat. You know we need to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for the favors upon us. So we need to when it comes to our Deen and worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala look at those above us. And when it comes to when it comes to the dunya and the worldly affairs, we need to look at those who have less than us and thank Allah subhanho wa Taala I hope that answered the question. We asked Allah subhanho wa Taala his acceptance and we asked him to grant us understanding.
Now, yesterday we stopped discussing, or we stopped at the point whereby we were discussing the discussion of the brothers of use of alayhi salatu was Salam whereby they were saying that Yusuf and his blood brother are beloved to our father yet we are bigger in number
Indeed, our Father is in plain error. And we went on to discuss the aspect of being equal and just to all our children. Now before I go into that I promised yesterday that we will look at the aspect of dreams. We can't go into a deep discussion about it. We need a whole program again, just discussing dreams But obviously, we learn about dreams since the story of surah. Yusuf actually begins with the dream whereby Yusuf Ali salat wa salam O Allah subhanho wa Taala says that open Humberto Allahu alayhi wa sallam from the stories we revealed to you is when use of Allahu salatu wa sallam told his father or my father, I have seen the sun, the moon, and the 11 stars, prostrating
and bowing down to me. So this was a dream that he saw. And just as a quick recap, we don't have time to do recaps. And it's all it's always my policy. And this is how we are taught to teach that when you have a lesson. The next day before starting the lesson, you tie the two lessons together give a quick recap of the lesson before but anyway, speaking about dreams yesterday we mentioned that dreams of the prophets are not just normal dreams that we would see there. They are, in fact revelation just as Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam saw himself as he is married and he salat wa salam. It wasn't just a dream. It was a revelation. That's the first thing. Then we also mentioned that
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that nothing else is left after profited except Move, move a shot, which is glad tidings. And when he was Christian, what is mobile surety said, Good dreams. And then we spoke about the aspect of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioning in a hadith that dreams are one over 46 of prophethood. And we said that Allah explained that Hadith by saying or explain the fraction by saying that 23 years Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam revealed or received divine revelation through a and six months before that, as we learned in Hadith eyeshine Buhari, he used to see dreams which used to come through. And we said that 60 divided by 23
gives us the fraction of one over 46 someone might have mentioned other things, but this is just to do a bit of or to provide a bit of understanding to the headache of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, the word dream in the Arabic language is
and it's plural is Roja. That means dream. And another word in the Arabic language that means dream is home. But the word home is usually or is associated with a dream that is bad follow up, as we will see during the Tafseer of this explanation of the surah. So the word haram and it's purely hallum is usually it means dream, but it's used depicting a bedroom. But Raja and Roja is used depicting a good dream. So that's the first thing in regards to dreams.
The word Roja dear listeners has been used in the Quran four times it has been used in Surah Yusuf, it has been used in Surah Surah, in Surah, sofort. And in Surah, alpha, then the word as we said, is associated with, with a bad dream, it also means dream, which also it means dream, but it's associated with the bad dreams, as I said, and I'll explain it again as we go through it. This is mentioned in the Quran twice. It's mentioned in Surah Yusuf as well as Surah Al ambia. That is in regards to the usage of these two words in the Quran. Now, a point that springs to mind very quickly is the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describing dreams, using the words that I've
just mentioned. Now, the Hadith exists in both authentic compilations we are so lost Allahu Allahu wa sallam said remember I discuss with you Rosa and Rosa and home and this how do you exist in inauthentic compilations. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said earlier I mean Allah. Welcome Mina Shiva. Now remember this hadith we said, Oh, yeah, and
he was in them said that a good dream is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that a bad dream is from shavon. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala protection from these kind of dreams. So this hadith teaches us that one can actually experience a good dream, a dream that when he wakes up from he feels happy, he feels pleased, he feels boosted up, and better about himself. And he can also experience a dream that may cause or that may disturb him a little bit. And this is talk to us from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I just mentioned. Now, many a time, the public and the Muslim public always asked questions in regards to dreams, you know what to make of
them? When should we believe them? Should we get them translated shouldn't be getting translated? What if I see this in a dream? Does it mean that it's going to happen? So you know, most of the of the youth they see
they might see a girl in the dream and if you visit the girl that I have to marry, etc, so there's a big commotion about the dreams etc in the public want to know and thus, I'm using the opportunity as we are discussing, the dream of use of adding so that was enough to talk about dreams.
The ultimate teachers
That dreams are divided into three categories. You have a good dream, which I said brings happiness to oneself. And then you have a bad dream, which we said, and we should also last Allahu Allahu wa sallam taught us is from Japan. And then you have a dream that actually depicts that which one thinks about constantly during his or her Day.
Happy fullness, as I was saying the Arabic language. So something is worrying you throughout the day, you have something on your mind. So when you sleep at night, you end up thinking about it and you dream about it. So they've told us that dreams are actually divided into these three categories. Have you told us is that which usually when you wake up, you forget immediately it doesn't really stay in your mind. It's something that was just on continuous play because you thought about it constantly during the day, and that's when you slept at night. You also ended up seeing it. So now what should we do when we see a good and bad dream? Islam obviously respected listeners without
doubt and we are proud to say it is a religion is a way of life and it is complete Allah subhanho wa Taala said polyoma achimota, Lacan, Deena conduct today we have completed your deen your religion for you. So there is nothing being left out the Sahaba of the Allahu Allah said that there was no point of goodness except that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 42 s
la ilaha illAllah that is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us, we should thank him that actually he has chosen us to be from amongst the believing Omar Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So we were discussing what should we do when we see these different types of dreams? I will start when you see a bad thing. Islam teaches us that when we see a bad dream, the first thing that we should do is that we shouldn't narrate it to anybody. We shouldn't end up going out and telling people of this bedroom that we saw and depicting details about it, etc. This is not from the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam someone once came up to us and Allahu alayhi wa
sallam and told him that he saw his head rolling in front of him. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam laughed and laughed at him in fact, and said, don't tell the people how shavon played with you. Don't tell the people how she played with you. And remember, we said a dream that causes you to be frightened is from the devil from shavon. So you shouldn't go out there telling people about it as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam stopped this person from telling people how shavon had played with him, then. So first, we shouldn't narrate a bedroom. Then.
If you are sleeping at night, and you have to face or happen to see this bedroom and you wake up in shock, you should turn your face to the right, you should turn your body to the right and then go to sleep. This is taught to us by colossal Allahu alayhi wa sallam. This is found in the authentic hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he has taught us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is that you should spit three times on your left side. So not spitting in such a way that saliva actually comes out of your mouth. But a type of spitting that the A comes out but the saliva doesn't that type of a split. That particular action should be done. So you split three times on
your left, turn yourself. In fact, the splitting aspect is mentioned. If I remember correctly in Sahih Muslim I remember reading it in Sahih Muslim, and it's the Hadith narrated by Jabba robiola one. So this is authentic teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that you turn to the right side
and go back to sleep. And before doing that you actually spit it out to the left, turn yourself to the right and go back to sleep. And you will ask Allah subhanho wa Taala his protection and you shouldn't narrate that dream
to anybody. So that's in regards to a bedroom. In regards to a good dream. When you see a good dream. The first thing you should do the listeners is thank Allah. Allah thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for granting you a good dream, then you should tell those who you just remember with a bedroom donated to anybody, but with a good dream. Tell it to those, not everybody, those who you trust. How do we know this? Yusuf Ali salatu salam has seen the dream. He tells his father who is tweet just and he's a young boy. So as far as the teachers in that lesson, don't tell your brothers and we'll discuss it. I mean, the fact that iacobelli salatu salam is telling us that it's permissible to tell
you it could dream, but if telling something something which is halal, if it's going to lead to Haram, then you're not allowed to tell it, but that's something inshallah we'll cover when we go through the Tafseer. So you should think Allah subhanho wa Taala then you should tell those who you trust like your mother, like your father, your close family, relatives, etc. Then you should try and get it interpreted. Now, interpretation, dear listeners, doesn't come from just anybody. It is a special skill and gift that Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted on a select few. It is not something that anybody, even those who are studying Islam can just get into and start and start in touch.
Putting and even when we get these dreams interpreted we should make sure that the interpretations are told to us strictly from the Quran and the sun. We don't want to hear anybody's personal experiences we are the followers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and we are the worshipers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when these interpretations take place, we should make sure that these interpreters actually speak to us from the Quran and the Sunnah I was fortunate enough to have one of my teachers at the university, he's actually specialized in interpreting dreams. Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed him with the gift. And he has written a lot of literature in regards to the
actual interpretation and what goes into it.
So we should make sure that homework is done properly before just going out and getting these dreams interpreted. Now, we should understand that and this is a question which was which I was asked in regards to gyms and so I'm going to put it over here. We need to understand the listeners that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us everything that we needed to know during his lifetime. Some people tend to see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in a dream or some pious person in a dream, or somebody who passed away who was close to living a dream, teaching them something that was colossal Allahu alayhi wa sallam never taught in his lifetime. Lists we should be
aware of if we see in our dream, a teaching that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam never taught us in his lifetime then that teaching is totally null and void. It is as if we are trying to say those who want to believe these dreams, it is it is as if we are trying to say that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually forgot to teach us something in his lifetime. And this is blasphemy as Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Allah McMichael. accom Dena. Today, your religion has been completed for you. So Islam is complete, it was completed before the departure of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant has the understanding. So that is in
regards to dreams. If there are any questions about it, you may phone in and leave your questions in inshallah we'll try to deal with them, time permitting, of course. Now, we were dealing with the aspect of justice between siblings, how parents deal with their children, the fact that the brothers of Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, were saying that our Father is in great and plain error. He loves these two, a lot, and we are big a number. So what are they actually trying to say that jacoba salatu salam here was actually being ingest or unjust to them? Was he being unjust to them, that they would feel this way? So I mentioned to you yesterday, that the aspect of when we look at our
children feeling love maybe more towards one child than another, this is something which is fitrah it is within oneself, it is beyond the human beings control, it is possible for one to love one child and that's a bit more than the other maybe he would have qualities and we can see tell us Valley salat wa salam had half of the beauty has taught us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and it's clear that Allah subhanho wa Taala had great plans for him, he was a well behaved boy, etc. And if it's true that his mother did die in his infancy, then it was all the more need for him to get the extra attention and care. And we did say that he was young, he was between seven or eight
Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best but under the age of 10, as most of them have seen have mentioned. So a young boy obviously needs to be nurtured has to you have to take care of him. There's a lot of things you make sure he does, and he doesn't do etc. So he was receiving the necessary attention. And proof of this, as we'll see in the story is that the brothers of Yusuf Ali salat wa salam didn't say that, look, our Father gives him more than He's given us, or he does more for him than he has done for us. They attack the aspect of love that he loves the more than he loves us. Now, this is something which is beyond a parent's control. But what we should know. And I didn't
mention yesterday that if somebody has more than one wife, it's possible that he may love one wife more than the other eyeshadow, and he was the most beloved to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, however, he was just with all of them, each one of them had their own appointed evening, and not one person had more evenings than the next he was just and the same way applies with parents, that even though you might feel more towards one child, you are not allowed at any point in time or in any circumstance to be unjust to your children. If you are unjust, then you are oppressing them. In authentic hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told a person who gave an amount of money or
a sadaqa to one of his children, and not to the others. And his wife told him that look, I will not be happy with your practice until you go to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and actually tell him what you have done and see if he approves of it. So he went and he taught us lots of love it was to them that this is what I've done in pursuit of love sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah Fie Allah subhana wa tada fear. Allah subhanho wa Taala or iv lubaina already come and be just to all your children. So there is no room for us despite how we might feel for one child over the next for us in any circumstance to be unsure and just you must be fair, we must provide them equal
opportunity, our relationship with
must be equal despite how we may feel, at certain intervals May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy upon all parents favoritism, my dear listeners is a means of operation in Allah subhanho wa Taala does not love the oppressors in Allah Allah. Allah mean Indeed Allah blessed that he will gentle does not love those who oppress. So we were saying that proof of the fact that jacoba alayhi salatu salam was fair to his children was that his children could not point out anything else or any other fault except jacoba salat wa salam, the love for you so and as I said, it was natural for him to get this attention. So jealousy again, jealousy was what made them act. Jealousy is what made them act.
And I said yesterday yokomen has a teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, stay away from jealousy. Jealousy, eats away the good deeds just as fire eats away a fresh firewood. So they said, okay, total use of our
economy buddy, Bowman saw him. They said that kill us Valley salatu wa sallam, kill him, or cast him out to another land, send him to another land, and remove him from the face of your father. remove him from the face of jacoba salatu salam, then only will we be able to get this attention from jacoba salatu salam so they said let's kill him or send him away. Let's remove him from the face of our father. And then after that, we will be good people. What do you mean by the common sight again, after we do this evil act, after we fall prey to the evil of jealousy and commit this crime, then we will be pious people. So Pamela, look at the deception of Shiva.
Shiva is deceiving them that look do this bad. After that you can be good people, Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive you just do this bad. And this is so many times how much? How many times does our conscience actually talk to us when we are doing harm when we miss our Salawat? When we delay in the paying of our code, when we engage in the evils that I hate to tell us of how to what I like listening to music, lying backbiting, etc? How many times does our conscience tell us that look, this is not loved by Allah subhanho wa Taala. But then we can share been playing with us telling us that look after this, you can still become a good person, obviously with sincerity Allah subhanho wa
Taala forgives, but Shiva is deceiving them, that kill him, send him away, then you can be a good person or you can become good people. And as the story goes on, we will only see how much worse the situation became. Because what did they have to do? They had to get rid of him which was diabolical, evil, in the highest sense of the word. Then they had to take his shirt. They had to kill a lamb with the intention of evil depreciate in the blood. Now are they being good people after getting rid of use of this is already so many sins upon the major sin that they did. Then they had to go home and use emotional blackmail with the Father and lie to the Father. So there was so much evils after
they committed this big evil. So this is a deception of a plan. And we need to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us from it. We need to understand something respected elders, respected brothers, my dear mothers in this and sisters, she upon never ever takes a person from guidance, too much guidance straightaway. He does it in stages. shavon doesn't take somebody from guidance to his guidance in one go. He does it in steps and stages. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala taught us in the Quran very carefully. And if we set those who know the Arabic language will appreciate the exact terminology that Allah subhanaw taala used. He said, Well I tell you what he said that don't
follow the footsteps of Shiva Shiva works in stages in steps slowly but surely, slowly but surely until he achieves his results. So shavon
said to them do this operation after that you will be good and they never became good. They had to engage in more transgressions, hater to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So after that, Allah subhanho wa Taala continues with the story telling us that Allah Illumina
someone said, from amongst them, let up through use of don't kill Yusuf alayhi salatu wa salam, well, Goofy hyah battleship, but if you must do something, then just throw him into a well there was a particular well where caravans used to pass through him in that well, you'll pick up a car in contemplating him. If you want to do something, don't kill him, throw him into the well. There's a particular well, that kettlemans Pass, a caravan will take you from that well and transport him out of Palestine.
So if you want to do something
If you are going to do this, then don't kill him. Just throw him into the well. Now the one I'm after you have mentioned that
the one who spoke out here by law illumine, whom that one of them said, the one who was speaking here was the oldest, but Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. But obviously he had to be a wise person, and the oldest normally should be the most wise. So he was advising them. Now from here we learned an important rule for those who study or sort of a foreshadowing of Bahrain, the lesser of the two evils. Remember, killing yourself was evil, and throwing them into the well was evil. So if you are going to do something to the lesser of the two evils, don't kill him, throw him into the valley where he can still be alive. And then you can get rid of him at least you haven't killed him.
Indeed, killing is a major, major sin. Just like to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions to us in the Quran, the story of the two sons of Adam Allen Salatu was Salam. And the first crime committed on earth him was killing whereby one of the sons of Muslim killed the other, but that is not our topic. So however, we're discussing a rule that we can take out from this, I bet.
off, we're sharing half of Bahrain, the lesser of the two evils. So the oldest one, as the owner of the seed has spoken out here. And he's saying, look, if you are going to do something bad, killing is worse than just putting him in the well, you might as well put him into the well. So that's the first thing that we learn here, the aspect of
Darwin, then, from this, if we learn, again, the following, now I'm going to try and do it in stages as it comes up in my mind, the first thing that's clear over here, from the way they're talking about their father from the product that they planning, remember use of is a young boy, I mean, he's so young, innocent, he's just seen this dream. And the first thing that's apparent is the disrespect to the Father.
disrespecting one's father, because obviously what they're going to do is gonna hurt the father a lot. So that is respecting the father and this is a lesson to the youth that may be listening now, or maybe listening a bit later
that this respecting your parents is from the major sense
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah, Allah, should I not inform you of the most hated sins.
And he said, to associate pandas with Allah, and after that, he said, to be disrespectful to your parents. So my young brothers, my ancestors, growing up, try and be tolerant to your parents obviously, we know that we live in a day and age which is moving quite fast some of us and this is the excuse that I always get from amongst from from the youth that you know, we live in a day and age of science and technology and times are moving and we moving with the times and our parents are from the 1960s and they still got the awkward, backward way of thinking etc. That is not the point. The point is to be tolerant. Obviously, you you respect your parents in every case, except if they
asked you to disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala let's say Allah subhana wa Taala in his wisdom, when he commands us to be obedient to parents he says
to Allah Yeah, that Allah has declared Allah has decided Allah has decreed that you worship nobody except when Allah or below it Dania Santa and that up, dutiful and kindly appears. So Allah before telling you to be dutiful in case your parent says that you should be dutiful to Allah for so if your parents happen to tell you to break the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala, then in that circumstance, you are allowed not to listen to them. However, there is also a way that you should deal with him when you are not. If they ask you to disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala you shouldn't be very violent and rough. Allah subhanaw taala. grant us the understanding. So the children need to
understand the importance of respect parents, this is true across from Surah Yusuf, you hear the brothers, although they were deciding just to get rid of use of they were missing the point that they are disrespecting the fact that the first point. The second point is that these brothers had no mercy to the bank, and Rasulullah sallallahu it was in the morning does against that he said the one who doesn't have mercy to the young is not from us. So another crime here, no mercy to the Yang. Then the third point that comes to mind is the breaking of brotherhood and unity. the breaking of brotherhood and unity. Remember, this is their own brother that they are planning against. So they
are breaking brotherhood first and foremost and breaking the unity of the home the unity of society. And this is utterly disliked to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We mentioned yesterday that Allah as taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Hadith, which is authentic that Allah likes three things for you. And he hates three things for you. And from one of the things that he hates, is that you are disunited from the things that he likes is that you are united you stick together in times of difficulty. You agree to disagree, but obviously someone was asking yesterday, after I mentioned the point of agreeing to disagree that To what extent do we agree to disagree?
extents are in meta that allow you to agree to disagree. Not every case. I mean, it is impossible to get people or a group of people or even a few people, two or even two people to agree on every single thing in your business partners who are just doing number have differences. Two minds are not the same two minds are different. And as long as you have different minds and different way of thinking, you have to be open to the fact that there will be cases whereby your views on be liked and supported. So you'd agree to disagree in things that you are allowed to obviously, we're not discussing issues of either things which are the hook, which there is no room for us to tolerate
meaning what's what's right is right, and there's no room for that that's something else. But we say in our daily dealings with one another, we tend to hold grudges, we tend to feel we might know better than the next, we tend to have this bad policy of driving our ideas down people's throats, that Listen, this is the way it is, if you don't like it, I'm not interested. Now, this is not a policy of Islam. Nor is it a policy of
always the teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And in fact, it's not even common sense. If someone sits down with common sense, and tries to just understand why people are different, we would understand the two minds are not alike. And this is also our parents should understand when also dealing with the children that we shouldn't try and drive our ideas down their throats, parenting is a skill, you need to use the means that are available to try and make these children understand especially when they are living in a day and age where their minds work a lot. And they think a lot and they contemplate a lot. And they are more used to you know doing things
which are not progressive to the time or meaning progressive in the time that they are spending. So you can just go to a child and start driving your ideologies down the street, you have to do it in such a way there's the art of doing it. You know, I mean, so many years ago, if you would corporal punish a child beat him a little bit, he would listen. But today, if you try doing that in the schools, or in the mattresses or in the home, if you try punishing your child by beating him, he's gonna become more rebellious, he's gonna get worse. So the aspect of corporal punishment and beating is not always the idea, although maybe 2030 years ago, it was always, oh, it always worked. It
doesn't work today. So there is an art we need to understand. Two minds are not alike, there's always going to be reasons to be different in and we need to agree to disagree in cases that we are allowed to do so. So here, the brothers by carrying out this act of breaking unity and unity, or the breakage of unity is the most disliked thing for a lot. So Hannah, who was at a point before carrying on that springs to mind is
the duty of an older brother to his siblings.
The oldest sibling in the home, in the absence of the Father, carries the responsibility of the Father. He needs to be apt, he needs to be irresponsible, he needs to be cautious here, by them doing this, the oldest brother, his duty or responsibility or the duty of responsibility that is upon him is being broken. This is taught to us by His behavior, whereby he didn't stand up to defend his brother here over he did speak out, but still the crime is taking place. So the duty of the older brother is rejected and how many a home today do we find the duty of the elder brother not being taken seriously. The oldest son,
as I said, plays the role of his father in the father's absence. He's in charge of making sure the home is running smoothly, ensuring the progression of the home ensuring that everybody is happy dealing with little Nitty gritties petty problems that may occur between the younger siblings, if he has sisters, it is his job to get them married, etc, making sure that they are upon their Salawat they are upon the duties to Allah subhanho wa Taala This is one of the big brother today Big Brothers in the homes, find themselves neglecting this great teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to us, and yet we are Muslims. And whoever listened to the program last night, which
was the Methodists, we were discussing Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we said that we all claim to love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And sadly, I have to use the word claim, because we all stand up and say we love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But how many of us actually prove the love we have for him by practicing his teachings. We say we love him, but we bring up our children contrary to his teachings, we say we love him. But we are with our wives contrary to the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam we say we love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam yet we doing everything else other than his teachings, Allah subhanho wa
Taala forgive us.
So here the duty of an older brother who's being broken to the
the big brothers in the homes, obviously again, this is not an attack to anybody, but it's a fact which exists and we have to speak about it.
And we're not saying all the brothers are neglectful of this, but it's becoming a case with the majority. So the oldest in the home has to understand that he has a responsibility. And from this ayah in Surah Yusuf, we learned that here, the brother, the oldest brother did not play his role as an older brother. Moving on Allah subhanho wa Taala says follow a banner. So now this is what they've decided they decided that listen, we are going to do this we're going to get rid of him. So they went to the Father, and they said baluja abana Malik Aleta Amanda Liu so forth in Allahu la Citroen. Now, listen to this, this is
I mean, this is putting a plan into effect.
In the highest degree, they plan this. Let's see how they deal with the Father. They go and say, oh, Father, why do you not interest us with use of Allianz? salat wa salam, why don't you trust us with him, he's our brother. We are sincere to him. We are counselors to him in Allahu la se,
La ilaha illAllah, emotional blackmail, whatever you may call it. So this is what the telling the Father. Now, as I said he was a small child, he actually needed permission to go out with even though they were his bigger brothers, especially they wanted to go for a longer outing. So he needed permission, they are going to get the permission but how by playing it properly. They want to make sure that this time we get him out of the home. So studying the statement we find emotional politics being used. They diplomatically launch a complaint that what is wrong with us that you can't even plus this with our brother and we are His well wishes we are His counselors.
So he says Bala
They say that, oh he tells them that.
It saddens me that you that he goes with you because I'm scared that a wolf might eat him. In fact, before that, they tell the follow up to saying we are counselors to him. They say I've seen
a boy in the Lola hospital that send him with us tomorrow. Send him with us tomorrow so that he can play with us. And indeed We will be his guardians. So first they tell the father that why don't you send him with us? What is wrong with us? How come you don't trust us? We are his counselors. We are his protectors. We are his advisors. Cindy motors. Cindy motors tomorrow, we will go and play and eat and we will be his guardians. So jacobellis Oh that was an M says Allah in Nila Yasukuni, he says indeed, it saddens me and tell her Bobby, that you should take him what half a Yakuza VIP. And I fear that a wolf may eat him. Once a man who has children while you're away. You might be too busy
playing you might be too busy doing something and you might just forget about it for a moment and a wolf might eat him. Now, there's a lot of things that we can say from the statement. I don't know how much time we actually have left.
I think about two minutes as I've been informed, we will continue with the Tafseer again tomorrow insha Allah obviously today we had a shorter we got shorter airtime. But
just before ending the program.
As I said at the beginning, we will be trying to assimilate lessons taught plus from this beautiful story and proceed with the condition of the Muslim oma today. Now I hope inshallah we are all paying attention. If we find ourselves guilty of certain Miss practices, then we should not lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala as long as we are hearing this as a good sign from Allah subhanho wa Taala we should hear him turn to him. ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive us and mend our ways and change our ways immediately. Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives all sins Allah subhanho wa Taala says polyamory by de la nostra for Allah unforseen that, oh, tell them oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam, all my servants, all my slaves who have placed themselves let's open up on the Rahmatullah. Don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the La Jolla Jamia Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives all sins wholesale in the who who will afford Rahim Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. We're not trying to lash out at anybody. We are just bringing effects that are apparent and have to be addressed in society. Don't lose hope. Turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and ask him his forgiveness. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding any mistake that I've made here is from myself and everything that is correct is from
Allah subhanho wa Taala also Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad
