Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

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

Allah Hartmann Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira nila Yomi Dean, my bag respected listen as a Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, today's Wednesday the ninth of August 2016. And just before beginning the program, I was informed that today is actually Women's Day. And in the Hadith program that we had of the Federal today, I was mentioning to those present that Islam recognized women A long time ago, a very long time ago upon its Advent, remember, Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam actually came at a time where women were being treated as a commodity, they were buried alive as young girls, that was the evil practice of the Arabs before the

00:00:57--> 00:01:39

advent of Islam, and after and if they were mature enough and married, etc. After the husband would actually die, they were used as commodity. In fact, they were actually even included in the worlds. So for example, if such and such a person passed away, and he owed such and such a person, some wealth or something, they would actually include the wives or their daughters in the world, that after their death, these are the daughters or the wives would actually go to these people to compensate for money owed etc. So women wouldn't recognize it. Also, lots of Allahu Allahu wa sallam and Islam came and gave women importance and recognition. So that's one point. The other point is

00:01:39--> 00:01:50

that we don't actually in Islam, recognize women, only one day in the year we recognize them every single day of the 365 days of the year.

00:01:51--> 00:02:30

That's what Islam teaches us. We shouldn't be from amongst those who only become occasional whereby we set out a day to recognize our mother to recognize our father to recognize our wives, to recognize women to recognize husbands, etc. Islam is not an occasional Dean, it is a continuous thing. It is a way of life. We should recognize our parents every day of our lives, our children every day of our lives and our spouses. Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding, just before going into the Tafseer few questions was useful in Serato, Sam's real brother older than him. I did say that he had a blood brother, who don't have to sit I mentioned his name was Binyamin.

00:02:30--> 00:03:00

According to the best of my knowledge, and Allah knows best he wasn't older than him Yusuf alayhi salatu salam was the older of the two. And because he was younger, he wasn't a real threat and thus more reason for the other brothers to get rid of Yusuf alayhi salatu salam so Binyamin was younger than Yusuf alayhi salatu salam and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. Is it sinful to feel inclined to one child over another? You said it is not? Yes, I said it is not. Remember we said that.

00:03:01--> 00:03:34

I mentioned the other day that love that a parent would have for his or her child is natural. I mean, it's natural for one parent to feel inclined to one child more than the other in certain circumstances. However, no matter how you feel for one child, it is important that you are with your children equally. You don't favor one child over the next because that is oppression and Allah subhanho wa Taala does not love those who oppress and Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't make those who who oppress successful.

00:03:35--> 00:04:17

And we mentioned the Hadith, which is a sort of Lawson Allahu alayhi wa sallam told the father who gave one child a sadaqa, gave him some money, gave him a gift and didn't give it to the others. He told him it lahardee lubaina Allah Deacon, that why the lubaina when it comes that fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and B fe between your children be just too all of them. So this teaches us that we have to be fair, but it's natural for one parent to feel or to love one child but more he could have better qualities he could be more pious, this is from the nature of one person is not something that you can control how it comes to mind narrated by the law and anything Buhari whereby he says or he

00:04:17--> 00:04:58

said that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he said either have Allah who didn't know that you believe that? Allah subhanho wa Taala loves somebody loves a slave he calls you pray Allah salat wa salam, and he tells. He says in the law you have befallen and Allah subhanho wa Taala love somebody and command zebra le salatu wa Salatu was salam to love that person as well. Then jabril le salat wa salam announces to the to Allah summer to the those present in the skies, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has indeed love somebody. So you should love this person for you. And the summit so the people of the skies or those present in the skies also love this person. Then, at the end of

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

the hat, it says to me, you know

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Fulfill and then after that, Allah subhanho wa Taala places the understanding or this love in the hearts of the people on earth. So all the people on earth also tend to love this person. So it is possible that you may feel inclined of love one child more than the other. Remember in the case of use of Aileen salatu salam, we said he was of great nature and great status because he saw the dream he related to iacobelli salat wa salam iacobelli salat wa salam understood from this dream that he was going to have a great status in his life. And we also said that he had half of all beauty so he was extremely handsome. So he indeed he was a pious child. He was a chosen prophet of Allah subhanho

00:05:43--> 00:06:20

wa Taala and jacoba. In salat wa salam, as a newbie could see the so it was natural for him to be more overprotective of use of Allah salat wa salam, however, he was just and we mentioned proof of him being just in the fact that the brothers of Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam. When they plotted to get us out the home, they couldn't attack the father on any point, except that he loved Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, he they didn't say that he's given him more more gifts, or he's given him more time, or he's given him more money, etc. So they attacked the aspect of love, because we did see that they weren't as pious as Yusuf alayhi salatu salam which caused them to carry out what they did. Another

00:06:20--> 00:06:29

Hadith that springs to mind very quickly is also in the in Al Bukhari and Muslim and authentic books of of Hadith. It's a hadith narrated by

00:06:30--> 00:06:31

us,

00:06:32--> 00:07:08

your loved one, he says that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked that Who is the most beloved to you? And he said, I shadowed your loved one. And he said from the men who said her father and he said then he was asked who next he said Papa, Naga, Lahore, and and like that he carried on mentioning the names. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding of Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best I hope that has answered the question. I do appreciate the questions coming in that shows that we have people who are actually trying to understand remember the issue here is not just to go through the Tafseer however, we want to make sure that there is understanding from amongst the

00:07:08--> 00:07:34

listeners we understand the lessons that are being given. And after understanding we should make sure that we try and act upon the lessons taught please feel free to phone in at the station and pass your questions in or send me a text message or an email or call me directly. I did give me a number yesterday 082 double 290834 that's Oh a 22290834 or send me an email at Sajid Ahmed

00:07:36--> 00:08:09

dot [email protected] is a j id h m Ed dot u m [email protected] Moving into the Tafseer. Yesterday we stopped at the point whereby the caravan took use of Allianz Salatu. Salam out of the well when they transported him beyond his will out of Palestine into Egypt. And they sold him he was a female initially, and they took him as a slave. We said they conceived him as merchandise. Then they sold him as as a slave even though he was a free man beyond his will. So now he was in Egypt.

00:08:10--> 00:08:35

And we had the recitation yesterday and today Continuing from the recitation. So we started with Chateau Huberman in boxing, da da, da da da. They sold him for a paltry sum, a small amount, an amount which really, you couldn't do much with what can you feed him in as a hidden use of adding Salatu wassalam was of no use to him. So today we start well, Carl and Larry Shara homie Misra liberati, a creamy mahalo.

00:08:38--> 00:09:16

The Minister of Egypt and his wife, obviously they might have been out shopping, they came across this caravan and they seen the caravan and they see use of salatu wa sallam. So the one from Egypt who bought him who is the Minister of Egypt, said to his wife, a creamy Messiah who make his residents comfortable, make his residents comfortable. Now, it is said that this minister had he also had great intuition because he just seen Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, and immediately he recognized the appreciation in purchasing the slave. He wasn't a slave, but they were selling him as a slave. So he told his wife, a creamy Messiah who make his residents comfortable. As I am Fina

00:09:16--> 00:09:29

owner de hawala, perhaps he can be of benefit to us, or we will be able to adopt him. And the one I'm after I've mentioned from this will end that they didn't have any children, the fact that they were considering to adopt use of Allianz Salatu, was Salam.

00:09:31--> 00:09:58

alaikum mckinnell use of Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala then says, we then established Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam in the land of Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and that's how we established Yusuf alayhi salatu wa sallam in the land well in Lima, whom into a hadith and we taught him the interpretation of events of dreams. We taught him Prophethood we taught him revelation, well in a limo home into a hadith Allah who Hollywood Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

Overcome upon all these affairs he is in total control of everything that happens Allahu Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Allah moon, and, or, but most of mankind do not know.

00:10:14--> 00:11:03

Now before carrying on, appoint springs to mind, which we can use in regards to fit or the Sharia or Islamic ruling, and this is in regards to sale in regards to transactions between one person and the next, the buyer and the seller. The caravan obviously took Yusuf alayhi salatu was Sallam declared him a slave, he was a free man, this is totally unacceptable in Islam. So, the sale of use of adding salatu salam in reality is incorrect. However, he was sold, and the Minister of Egypt purchased him. We learned from this that if you go to the shop, and the whole setup of the business of the shop looks okay seems to be legitimate. There doesn't seem to be any illegal things going on there. Or

00:11:03--> 00:11:09

any improper activities going on there. We learn from this that if the sale does go through,

00:11:11--> 00:11:48

we checked out the shop, we checked out the business, everything looks legitimate. However, in reality, it's not legitimate and the sale goes through we learn from this that the sin of the sale will be upon the seller and not upon the buyer. Why? Because the buyer was deceived. Where do we get this from? We get this from the sale of use of adding salatu salam over here, he was sold beyond his wish as a slave when he was actually a three man caravans, the listeners in reality would it was a normal practice that they would come from country to country selling slaves, so it was nothing abnormal, you would go if you wanted to purchase a slave, you would go to these caravans and inquire

00:11:48--> 00:12:24

about it. This was a normal practice. And that's the Minister of Egypt and his wife went to the caravan there was no, there was nothing there for them to feel that there's anything illegal, anything illegal, or there's anything that's not a normal practice going on here. So they thought the setup looked Okay, they purchased Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam. So in this, the sin goes to the people of the caravan, they sold Yusuf alayhi salatu wa sallam, beyond his will. And that is illegal and not islamically correct. However, the Minister of Egypt, he didn't receive that sent because it was a norm to go to these caravans. And according to him, he made a normal purchase. So that's a

00:12:24--> 00:12:34

lesson which we can pick out from that. Then the minister said to his wife, a creamy masala, who make his residents comfortable, be generous to him,

00:12:35--> 00:12:59

make his residents comfortable and be generous to him, we can adopt him as our child, or he can be of benefit to us. Now, the lemma explained, as I said before that from this, we learned, they never had a child, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best because they were actually considering adopting him. Now. This is intuition. For us in the Arabic language is known as whereby you look at something and you sense

00:13:00--> 00:13:34

goodness from it, for example, you go into business dealing, and you sense that there's going to be so much of an appreciation or the you look at the pros and the cons, and Allah subhanho wa Taala grants with this ferocity, this intuition to see the goodness in it, and then you enter into that business transaction. And the same with anything else. A father may have intuition over his children, he would probably recognize at an early age, how good this child would be in a particular field. If he was going to be a prominent sports player, or he would be a prominent doctor or a prominent pharmacist to engineer, the father may have this ability to steer us at this intuition. a

00:13:34--> 00:13:43

sixth sense, you may call it whereby you look at this child or you look at a proposition and you sense the good in it is reported by other live in Minnesota, the other one that

00:13:45--> 00:14:06

he said there are three people who had the highest level of intuition and insight. Three people, he they had the highest levels or they have the capabilities to recognize good and opportunity. He said the first person was the Minister of Egypt, who set a premium of Huawei talking about this minister right now, who told his wife, be kind to him, make his residents generous.

00:14:07--> 00:14:36

Make his residents generous, he realized goodness in him. So the person who said to his wife a premium of the Minister of Egypt, the second person is the daughter who said to her father, who was the farmer, yeah, but he said, Oh, my father hired this person. She saw in him goodness, she saw in him good qualities, trustworthiness, honesty. So that was intuition and she told her father to hire him. And the third person is Abubakar, acidic rhodiola. And when he before he passed away when he appointed me

00:14:38--> 00:15:00

to be the leaf of the Muslims after him. So this was in commissionable Baccarat, and obviously had many Sahaba to choose from but his terasa his intuition led him to choose America Pablo de la horn as the halifa of the Muslims, and what a good choice it was. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says work has become a tenderly useful Philip. And that is

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

How we established Yusuf alayhi salatu salam in the land. And indeed, without doubt Allah subhanho wa Taala established him. Allah subhanho wa Taala saved him from the evil plans of his brothers, in the darkness of the well, then from the oppressive aspect of being sold as a slave beyond your wish, and let us not forget he was taken out of his land, he is in a foreign land. So Allah saved him from that as well. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala placed him in a home and not just any home, the home of the Minister of Egypt, and what a home that is to be in. Then Allah sees willingly limma home into a hadith and we taught him also we can teach him the interpretations of dreams and Prophethood

00:15:41--> 00:16:24

and knowledge of the Holy Scripture of the Quran, Allah hollyburn Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala is full of Allah subhanho wa Taala is powerful over his affairs, if he will something there is no diverting his decision, there is no diverting his command. Nothing can be said or done to go against the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he can never be contradicted. we're lacking that unless you know your animal, but most people know not. Most people do not know this. They have no knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala as wisdom in regards to his creation, and yesterday we spoke about the aspect of being patient that Allah subhanho wa Taala will test you and Allah subhana wa Taala has a

00:16:24--> 00:16:57

plan. And Allah is powerful over his plan, there is nothing that can come in its way. So when anything happens to you Be patient and turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala who is the creator, the controller, the notitia, the Sustainer he is the doer of all he gives life he keeps death, there is no one worthy of worship except him. So if difficulty happens to overcome you tend to Allah subhanho wa Taala Be patient You are a Muslim and Allah subhanho wa Taala loves you. I said yesterday that Hello I had I had them. Tell me that if Allah subhanahu Allah loves a person, Allah horrible is that he will gll test him.

00:16:58--> 00:17:35

Has he been as a youth Rocco yaku Amanda home life The Lord Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran that do the people think that it is enough for them to say we believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala we're not testing. Do you think it is enough for you to say you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala you believe in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that Allah subhanho wa Taala is just going to leave you Allah subhana wa Taala will definitely test you he just had the idea and in salatu salam e test that was a habit of the Allahu Allah, who are better people than us. So what about us so we might go through different trials tribulations anxieties, depressions distress, we

00:17:35--> 00:18:02

might have children who are not being so obedient, we might be having a parent who might be a bit difficult and harsh over us. Or we might not be passing that well in school. We might not have a child who's performing so well in school or we might not have a child who is actually practicing his Deen properly. This doesn't mean we should lose hope my dear listeners it means we should turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we should be patient and we should ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for assistance.

00:18:03--> 00:18:09

And we should know that the fact that Allah subhana wa Taala is testing us, it means that he loves us.

00:18:10--> 00:18:41

So patience is virtue. And I did mention the Hadith yesterday that a Muslim is in a win win situation. If Allah gives him good, he thinks Allah subhanho wa Taala and it is good for him Elif Allah, just him or something bad happens to him then his patients in that which happened to him and that also is good for him. So we should be make sure that we from amongst those that thank Allah subhanho wa Taala in the times of goodness, unfortunately we find ourselves today, whatever near my blessing that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us we don't remember him. We don't thank him. We don't

00:18:42--> 00:19:23

we don't try and be grateful to the blessing that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us in fact we become so oblivious, we don't even recognize it as a blessing. until Allah subhanho wa Taala takes it away. Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from amongst those who think Allah subhanho wa Taala and we ask Allah not to test us because we are weak but if Allah subhana wa Taala does test us we asked him to grant us patience, and Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all evil. Then Allah subhana wa Taala says, What am bellava I should do it now hoekman hookman that when Yusuf alayhi salatu wa sallam reached maturity, he reached the age of puberty, we gave him judgment and knowledge hokum or Allah

00:19:23--> 00:19:26

we gave him knowledge and power to enforce this knowledge.

00:19:27--> 00:19:30

Okay, that he can Mycenaean and this

00:19:31--> 00:19:34

is how Allah subhanho wa Taala or that is the way Allah

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

Allah rewards the people who do good May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from among those who do good. Now, one thing is to have knowledge. But the highest level of responsibility is when you have knowledge and you have the ability to enforce that knowledge. Allah subhanho wa Taala may bless a person with knowledge, but if he blesses him with knowledge and the power to enforce what he knows

00:20:00--> 00:20:19

That is the completest form of authority. That is the completest form of one being in total control. Why? Because he knows what is right and what is wrong. And on top of that, he has the ability to act out correctly. So many of us know that this what we're doing is not correct. We're not supposed to be doing this.

00:20:21--> 00:20:57

We know it, but we don't have the control. We don't have the judgment. We don't have the capabilities to enforce that which we know. If you have the ability to do that, then you are complete. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, complete use of Allah salatu wa sallam, he reaches the age of puberty, he had knowledge. Now he has judgment, wisdom, and he has the ability to act on that knowledge from this ayah we also learn that Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam actually spent a long time with the Minister of Egypt and are in the home of the Minister of Egypt. How do we know this? We know that he was transported from Egypt at a young age, as most of the lemma of the seed have

00:20:57--> 00:21:39

mentioned, he was under the age of 10. And now he has reached the age of puberty. And some of you may have mentioned that we're looking at an age gap of between, or we look at his age being now between 14 and 15. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best so he has spent quite a while now in the home of the Minister of Egypt, and we know that he was handsome, he had half of beauty now he's reached maturity, and obviously he will only be getting more handsome. All of his features will be coming out. He's a very handsome boy, Allah subhanaw taala blessed him and his mother with beauty as to a plus by colossal Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, that he can be seen and that

00:21:39--> 00:22:00

is how Allah subhanho wa Taala reward the good doers. Allah says machining, machining from a sun which is the highest form a person can reach in regards to his relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala in a lovely Hadith narrated by Abu Dhabi Allah who I'm known as Hadith gibreel This is a books in the authentic books of Hadith

00:22:02--> 00:22:42

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us in this hadith three aspects of one's of one in regards to his relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So first is the aspect of Islam and in higher the higher than that is the aspect of Eman and higher than those two is the aspect of science Allah says machining, connection machining showing the use of Allah His salatu salam had actually reached the position of exile he reached the highest level in regards to his relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and Allah says we do good to those who have reached the level of exam. So what is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us in this hadith that Excel and terrible de

00:22:42--> 00:23:06

la Huck and Nick Katara for inlanta Katara who's in New York, that it is to be with Allah subhanho wa Taala to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in such a manner that you actually see Allah subhanho wa Taala you see a lot of bliss that you are jealous. And if you can't reach that stage, or if you can't see Allah subhanho wa Taala then you know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching you.

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

Many a time we get people complaining that they're having trouble concentrating in their Salawat in the rendering of the Salah. So they're standing up for fudger for God for us, or for McGriff or Asia for taraweeh. or for whatever prayer they may be intending to pray, but the mind begins to wander, the mind begins to wander on to the business that they probably had in the morning, or probably the golf game that they had in the afternoon, or whatever event that they might have gone through during the day the mind starts to wander. Obviously, this is from shape. And you should remember the lesson is that Sherpa is a constant end is a constant enemy that is persistent, he's constant and

00:23:44--> 00:24:08

persistent. If he can't stop you from rendering your Salawat if he can't stop you from going to the masjid, then he will play with you during your Salah or he will play with your intention you will take away the class from it and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us sincerity. One of the hardest things for a believer to control, especially in this day and age is the aspect of us doing things solely for the pleasure of Allah.

00:24:09--> 00:24:46

May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who have sincerity. sociopath will come in play with the sincerity and then he will play with you in your Salawat he'll give you the Swiss watch, he'll whisper to you. And he'll whisper things to you and make you start thinking of things other than yourself right? Now how do you solve this problem? By understanding that you are standing in front of the King of all kings? Just imagine if you were standing in front of the president of your country or the king of a certain country? Would your mind actually wonder? It wouldn't. You'd be in total concentration to what this person has to say. In fact, your dress would be of the

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

highest caliber and quality when we go to the masjid some of us even neglect the aspect of dressing appropriately. And Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah in the eighth paragraph, he says, who do Zina to come in the masjid

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

Kudo Xena Tacoma in the masjid that beautify yourselves when going to the masjid dress appropriately. So if we were standing in front of a kink or a president, our mind would really wonder we would be in total concentration we will be dressed appropriately we would be not on time for the appointment but before time for this appointment so she plays with these things when we're standing in front of Allah subhana wa Tada. So you should know that you are not in you are not standing in front of a president. You are not standing in front of a king, you are standing in front of the King of all kings, there is no rhyme or reason for your mind to wander. And by practicing

00:25:39--> 00:26:16

this one can slowly and obviously by doing good deeds doing that which Allah subhanho wa Taala has commanded you to and staying away from that which Allah Allah has commanded you to stay away from by doing all this one reaches the stages of science whereby if you can't see Allah He knows that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching him and he has total sincerity and concentration in regards to his creator, Allah azza wa jal. So Allah says that he can legislate in my singing, that is how we reward the people of the people who are the good doers. Now the story moves on it moves into the next phase. Obviously we said there was the phase where Yousuf was with his father, he told him the

00:26:16--> 00:26:27

dream. Then there was another phase whereby Yusuf was removed from his father, and the evil plan that was plotted, took place. Now Yusuf alayhi salatu salam has reached maturity.

00:26:30--> 00:26:52

A person a boy who had half of all beauty, he reaches the age of puberty, living in one of the most important homes in Egypt. It was the home of the Minister of Egypt, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, or are the two Letty who have a beta and NFC. So the story moves on. As I said, He's reached the age of puberty

00:26:54--> 00:27:09

and he is extremely handsome, and he is in the most affluent of homes. Allah mentions to us that she in whose house he was meaning the wife of the Minister of Egypt, Yusuf Alayhi, salaatu wa Salaam was in her house. So to seduce him.

00:27:11--> 00:27:59

Radha from Murata meaning, to seduce, to entice gently, politely, or in a gentle way, and politely to seduce with seconds morada what are the two Letty who have you beta and look how Allah subhanho wa Taala places the statement how he words this ayah so Pamela and we did mention and I will mention it again, the power of the Arabic language and the power and the height and level of expressiveness that Allah subhanho wa Taala has used in revealing the Quran. Allah says Allah didn't say in Ratan Aziz remember she was always referred to as immortal as he is the wife of the Minister of Egypt. here Allah subhanho wa Taala says, the one in whose house he was, he was in her house. What does

00:27:59--> 00:28:40

this teach us? This teaches us a lot of things. This teaches us how helpless Yusuf alayhi salatu salam was, he was in her house. Yes, she was the minister's wife. But Allah says in the circumstance, we won't tell you. Soon as he is. We say what are the two lady who have you been here? She said us Tim was South subtleness. And he was in her house. He was in a weak circumstance. He was in her house. She was the owner. He was the one who was owned. He was the slave she was the master. And we can carry on understanding what a weak position Yusuf alayhi salatu salam was because remember, we said he's a stranger. He was from Palestine, and now he's in Egypt, then the language

00:28:40--> 00:29:03

of Palestine was different from the language of Egypt, then the religion that he was upon was different from the religions look weakness upon weakness, he is in a condition and situation whereby he is helpless. He has no power, then he is a mere slave. A slave never has status. A slave doesn't have status. And she wasn't just a woman. She was the Minister of Egypt's wife.

00:29:05--> 00:29:50

And he is the slave and the enticer, who is the minister's wife was of great status. She wasn't just a normal lady. So this shows us how we make use of Allianz. Salatu was Salam was and praise be to Allah subhanho wa Taala in the great that he revealed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as listens to us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says la vida to seduce with seconds. Then what are the two Letty who have the beta and FC? We're gonna look at our pilot Hey Tilak she didn't just close the doors Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't say that she closed the doors he uses the expressive form of the verb alacati she shut the doors, we understand from the word or we get an impression from it,

00:29:50--> 00:29:56

that she shut it she locked it she closed all exit and entry points to this room.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

Above and above is the plural form of the word door.

00:30:00--> 00:30:19

Which means that there wasn't just one door. There were many doors to look at the circumstance Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam finds himself in. Remember yesterday, I said, fasten your seat belts, why he went through so much. But that was just the beginning, there's still so much to come. And we need to understand the trouble that this young boy is going through to our troubles even come close to it.

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

So he's in a weak circumstance, as I mentioned the points, and now he's in a room, all exit and entry points are shut.

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

So she shuts all those, she say.

00:30:35--> 00:30:39

She says, Hey, Tillich, as if you're saying, Come to me or Come on,

00:30:40--> 00:31:00

enticing him gently or call it at the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So she prepares the whole thing. She gets used in a difficult situation. Bear in mind, as I said, again, I'm trying we need it's important that we put ourselves or we place our minds in the correct frame, we need to understand the seriousness of the circumstance use of Allianz Salatu was Salam is in

00:31:01--> 00:31:48

his in her home, she is the master. She is the slave. She is not just an ordinary woman, she's a woman who has to be British is the minister's wife, a minister would not marry just any ordinary girl. She has to be a woman who has features a woman who has status in society. So she's a powerful woman. And then she says to him, come on, what does Yusuf alayhi salatu salam immediately do here? Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, a person who is from the magazine immediately turns and runs to who Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, follow my Allah, Allah, Allah, I seek refuge in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Subhana Allah, look at the circumstance and look where his heart and mind turns to he turns to

00:31:48--> 00:32:12

Allah subhanho wa Taala he turns up with everything around him, his right is blocked, his front is blocked behind him is blocked, his left is blocked. Allah subhanho wa Taala his door is open. He turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala says Allah Allah Allah, I seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala in a big cinema Why? In the hula Valley moon Subhan Allah in the European cinema fly.

00:32:13--> 00:32:28

Now before I explain the actual meaning of indo European cinema fly off to sea to have given two interpretations and you can use both of them in actual fact, again, this is the depth of the Arabic language, he says, I turned to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala has been good to me.

00:32:29--> 00:32:49

Allah has been good to him. Allah granted him the dream, then protected him from the well then protected him from the caravan, then brought him up, brought him up in the most loftiest of homes. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has been good to me in the European cinema boy, in the Arabic language, the word rub is also used to depict a master.

00:32:50--> 00:33:23

And he was a slave, and who was his master, the Minister of Egypt. So some of the allama have said this also means that he said that the Minister of Egypt has been good to me. Remember, he said a creamy motto, he told his wife, be generous to him, make his residents comfortable, make his home or his place of abode? good to him, be generous to him. So he's telling her he's telling the minister's wife that indeed my master, who is the Minister of Egypt has been good to me, there is no way that I can be unjust to Him and do this immoral act with you.

00:33:24--> 00:33:46

So these are two interpretations given to us by the owner of tafsir. And we can use both of them. This is the depth and beauty of the Arabic language, that first Allah subhanho wa Taala has been has been good to me. There's no way I will do this. And also your husband has been good to me. How can you expect me to be to, to act immorally and in this manner, and betray his trust.

00:33:48--> 00:34:28

So a powerful lady calls him to Xena. Obviously, she wanted to commit adultery and he ran he ran to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, we mentioned how beautiful Yusuf alayhi salatu salam was here we learn that not only did he have exterior beauty, not only did he have beautiful features, externally, he was also beautiful on the inside, because his character showed he didn't engage in the act of harm, he feared his creator, you feared Allah subhanho wa Taala in terms of a panel with Allah and fishos inner beauty and that's what we are taught to say. When we look into the middle when we look at ourselves and understand that the beauty that Allah subhana wa tada has given us Allahumma has sent

00:34:28--> 00:34:50

the holiday fasting colocated Allah you have granted me beautiful features. So beautify my character, beautify my insight. And indeed, my dear listeners, good character is one of the heaviest things that will be on the scale of a believer on the Day of Judgment. Allah subhanahu Allah says, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us Maja Kula abdomen piano.

00:34:52--> 00:35:00

That the heaviest things that will be on the scale of a believer on the Day of Judgment is the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

Allah and good character. We Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us his fear and grant us good character. So, the good character of use of ru salat wa salam actually shows over here and he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala fearing him and knowing that it's a bad character to engage in this immoral behavior. We also know that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us that on the day where there will be no shade. Seven people especially will be granted shade underneath Ashraf Allah subhanho wa Taala from those people is a boy or a person who a woman called him to Xena to haram and he turned away fearing Allah subhanho wa Taala. He said, I feel my Creator if he had Allah subhanho

00:35:42--> 00:36:04

wa Taala and stayed away from that evil action from the evils of Xena and we know respected elders and brothers, the aspects of Xena and how hated it is to Allah subhanho wa Taala and the penalty that the Sharia has actually placed upon anybody who does this crime. Now we learn from this i a lot of points as well, first and foremost, the evils of

00:36:06--> 00:36:46

the evils of halwa the evil of being alone in a room with a person from the opposite gender, and sort of loss of a lover. It was an unfortunate this way he said there is no person alone with a woman except that shavon is the third there is no woman or no person alone with a woman except that a man is the third and many parents always say we trust our daughters we trust our sons, my dear mothers, my dear father's Yes, you trust your daughters, you trust your sons you cannot trust shape one know and understand you cannot trust shape. And the only thing that is going to help your child from staying away from the acts of evil is the levels of his Emma and and fear of Allah subhanho wa

00:36:46--> 00:37:23

Taala. And that is a level that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. we as parents are protective over our children, we should not place them in environments where they are prone to harm where they are prone to evil practices, we should make sure as nurturers of them, we advise them towards good. We always look at the surroundings and circumstances that that they are in we look at the friends that they have making sure that they don't end up going out to places where there is this aspect of halwa where they are mixed gatherings. And the Sharia teaches us the aspect of in fact I'll discuss it a bit later. But the issue of staying away from its gatherings and the aspect of dressing

00:37:24--> 00:37:49

appropriately. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding. We don't have much time left, I think about 30 minutes. But obviously we had important lessons Today we are moving with the Tafseer. Again, I will say let us make sure that we are taking the benefits from it. When I was asked to do this stuff seed we said that we'll do a tuxedo duty whereby we will assimilate lessons taught to us in the Holy Scripture in the Quran

00:37:50--> 00:38:26

that were taught for so many years ago will assimilate it to circumstances that we have today as I said Muslim, the Muslim Ummah is going through trials and tribulations and inshallah, we should be taking hope from the tests that you've had in salatu salam had and how fast or how well he passed them. So let us make sure that we are actually benefiting from the stuff see, we are understanding the lessons This is not merely something known as story time. We We are here telling stories. Indeed, it is a great story. But in it there are great lessons, it is understand the great lessons and it has put them into practice. Remember one thing is to have knowledge, but the complete form of

00:38:26--> 00:39:04

authority and the highest form of one really having knowledge is that he has the knowledge and when he has the means to facilitate that knowledge to act upon it. And if we feel that we have done wrong, I will say it again. Don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala ask him for forgiveness and know that Allah subhana wa Taala has forgiven you and make amends. It is never too late. As long as you are breathing, it is never too late. So the loss of Allah while he was in them said in the life of the MLM you are here Allah subhanho wa Taala accepts the plea of a believer for forgiveness, as long as he hasn't tasted death May Allah subhanho

00:39:04--> 00:39:29

wa Taala forgive us May He grant us the understanding if there are any questions please feel free to contact me. Everything that I've said in this hadith or in this in this session, which is correct is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and if I did make any mistake, it is from myself and Siobhan and I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala is forgiveness. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding. Join me again tomorrow in sha Allah, Allah sallallahu wasallam all about a garden of Eden Hammad, or Annie or savage mine
