Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah who I
am. Today is Thursday the 17th of August 2006. Once again, welcome as we go through yet another lesson in the Tafseer of surah Yusuf. Yesterday we ended, whereby we were discussing the brother's attempt to take Vinny amin to use of Alinea. Salatu was Salam. Remember Yusuf requested that Binyamin comes to use of adding salatu salam, so use of Allah His salatu salam can give them one camels load or the measurement of food for an extra brother iacobelli salat wa salam categorically said that I will not let him go with you after what happened before and then we discussed how Yusuf Alayhi salat wa salam plan actually came into effect, whereby, remember, he placed the merchandise
in the main baggage baggage which they wouldn't open on the way to Palestine baggage, which they would only open when they got home. And as they open their baggage, they found this merchandise and they told the father that our Father, we don't mean any harm. We told you that this, this king or this leader, this minister is actually he's generous. He's He's even returned our merchandise so we don't have any ulterior motives. All we want is to go get our measurement so piece in Binyamin with us. He said I will only send Binyamin with you. If you take an oath and they took an oath and jacobellis salat wa salam said that Allah subhanho wa Taala is a witness over this oath. Now we
stopped discussing or we stopped at the point whereby we were discussing the aspect of taking a person and we said that Allah subhanho wa Taala or iacobelli salatu salam never just said here, most people that just take a person, he said that take a person by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we said that the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala his name was mentioned here means that we are not allowed to take a person by any other thing other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we mentioned a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam putting an end to this, we know that today we find people carelessly taking person by those other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. Like the mothers like the
fathers, this is the lesser Shere Castro transpersonal lasala, and he was telling him when he left, the lady left Africa or Russia, that the person who takes an Assam an oath by anybody other than Allah subhanho wa Taala, then they have indeed, disbelieved or committed ship. Donna might have taught us that this is an assertion. It doesn't take you out of the religion or the fold of Islam. However, it weakens your Eman and throws you in the avenue of a kebab which is chiraq which takes you out of Islam and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said men can Oliphant dilla, Olia Smith, that whoever takes a person, then they should take a custom only by Allah subhanho wa Taala or they
should keep quiet. Now we get taught here, the miscibility of taking a person and custom should only be taken by Allah subhanho wa Taala. However, we shouldn't engage in continuously just taking person for frivolous things, but things which are not really important, trivial matters. We shouldn't take person taking a person is a serious aspect. It is a serious action and we need to guard our tongues when using or swearing by Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding in regards to taking a possum. Now before we continue, I would like for us to listen to the recitation.
hola You can cry listening to the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala such perfect is the meaning it has such an effect on one's hearts of Han Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala is perfect and there's no one worthy of worship besides, when Allah jacoba salat wa salam advises his children. He says, Okay, take Binyamin and go. And so panela a loving father and advisor over his children, sits them down and says, Listen, my children, when you go back to Egypt, do not enter all at once through one gate. Oh my sons do not enter from one gate, but enter from different gates. So hon Allah He out of love for his children is advising them now why is he advising them to enter through different gates, not
through one gate at the same time? There are a lot of seed have mentioned here that iacobelli salatu salam was advising them to use means available to them obviously, to avoid and stay away from the evil eye. And many of us will know it as nessa so jacobellis salat wa salam, a loving father and advisor to his children advises them this to ward off the evil eye. Now, many a listener, many a Muslim today questions a lot about the evil eye. Why is it there? It can it really harm somebody, how do we avoid it? Or what do we do? What does the Sherry I teach us in regards to it? The evil idea listeners is from the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It's something that
actually exists. We have evidence from the Quran, there's evidence from the Sunnah, and the allama have taught us that the evil eye itself is when you look at somebody with admiration. So you look at somebody or you look at something, and you admire it so much. And you admire it with the contamination of being evil. So you are jealous about this thing that you are looking at. As a result, what happens, you're looking at it results in harm. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala his protection, so you admire something, somebody's got a nice car, a nice house, somebody's got a handsome son, or a pretty daughter, or somebody who has children who are passing very well in school
for the performing really well. You look at the success, but you look at it with a sense of animosity, a sense of jealousy, and you're looking at it results in harm and evil. And this is one of my thoughts about it. In fact, Imam nawawi says that both the Divine Decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the evil IRA allow no one disputes the Divine Decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But he mentions in his commentary on Sahih Muslim that the Divine Decree and the evil eye are both real, it is powerful, but neither the evil eye or anything else can cause harm to a person or even do good to anybody except by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if you are affected by the evil I know and
understand that it was done with the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanho wa Taala is in control of everything. Nothing happens except with the will and wish of Allah Allah azza wa jal and don't ever question Allah subhanho wa Taala did Why did he will something and why didn't he will something? Allah Subhana Allah Allah is Allah hydropower? He is one there is no other Arab. There is no other ILA except Allah subhanho wa Taala. We worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. And Allah subhana wa Taala will question us and we cannot question him. But one thing we need to understand is that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not oppress anybody. So evidence from the Quran
teaching us this lesson of the evil eye. It's in this ayah in Surah, Yusuf acabo de la tulameen babinda hidden with Hulu in oblivion with Africa, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us iacobelli salat wa salam telling his sons All My Sons do not enter by one gate, but enter by different gates. And as I said, the majority of them have a Syrian, a unanimous and they agree that the brothers of use of Annie salatu salam were handsome and good looking. I mean, if Yusuf alayhi salatu salam had half of all beauty imagine how handsome his brothers were, and Yaqoob and in salat wa salam, he feared that the people might affect them with the evil I mean, such a large group of children, all handsome
looking, coming from a fire city and remember, they were there before and now they're coming again. So they could be one element in society who could envy them
affect them with the evil eye so he's using means that Allah subhana wa Taala made I mean obviously he's acting upon him. He was a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala and later on we will see Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioning that he acted upon him and Allah subhanho wa Taala also mentioning that no matter what you do, Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all Eva and another Ayah which teaches us the evil eye is in Surah Allah Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala says what year Catalina cafaro they usually Kona coffee I'm sorry malema, semi or vichara or Kowloon in June, Mama Hua illogical in alameen, Allah subhanho wa Taala says and Verily, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their
eyes. How through hatred, they look at you with hatred, they would almost make you slip with their eyes when they hear the Quran when they hear the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala and they say Verily, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a madman, but it is nothing else than a reminder to all of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is evidence that quickly comes to mind from the Quran, from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abu huraira Allah mentions in a hadith which is in the sorry, he says the possible loss of Allah Allah He will send them said, and it will happen on a motion, that the evil eye is real. And the pursuit of loss of the lover I leave
us alone forbade tattoos, but we want to concentrate on the aspect of the evil eye Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying here that the evil eye is a reality. In another Hadith narrated by Sharon, Allah, her and her, which is in the swimlane she says that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said is that it will be let him in a line that seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evil eye. She said that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for in the line that the evil eye is real, even our best rodella and also says that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that the evil eye is real. So we need to understand that this is a reality and we need to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala his protection from it. Now someone might say that how do we repel or how do we protect ourselves from the evil eye before it strikes? Now this and as I said, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never left anything which is good. The Sharia teaches us that if somebody wants to protect himself or herself from the evil eye, then they should always seek Allah subhanho wa Taala as blessings by Allah wisdom if the one who has put the evil eye on another seeks blessings, then the evil eye is cancelled. So don't ever look at somebody good and forget to remember Allah subhanho
wa Taala Don't ever look at somebody nice home at somebody's good life at somebody successes without saying Masha Allah Alhamdulillah seeking Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings, praising Allah subhanho wa Taala. By doing that, it kills one's envy, and the evil eye actually doesn't have the effect that it would have in a circumstance whereby someone would admire something with envy and forget to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we should seek Allah subhanho wa Taala as blessings when we look at somebody's success, don't be an enemy to your fellow Muslim by admiring it with evil with hatred, and thus, the actual admiring that you do is a means of harm for this person. And we should
remember that the evil eye can come from a righteous person also not just from an enemy. So this is something we should do. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded us to pray for blessings for everything that we like. He said, either a hydrocone AHIMA ijebu pelea de la bill Baraka billbergia, that if one of you see something that his brother has done, let him pray for blessings for his brother
in law, you know, thank Allah subhanho wa Taala say Allahumma barik la se, Berta caligraphy So, this is teachings from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we need to take a serious meaning we need to understand it properly and put it into practice. We need to always praise Allah subhanho wa Taala don't look at somebody a good and somebody success and envy it and thus cause harm to him. As we said, the evil eye is something which is a reality, and it can affect people that sort of loss Allahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned to us time and time again the reality of the evil eye. Now someone might say that what is the remedy of the evil eye after it has happened just now we discussed how we
repel it, that before it can even come into effect, we make sure that when we look at something we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala we say that which is taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allahumma barik Allah he, you know, praising Allah subhanho wa Taala and asking Allah subhanho wa Taala to pass blessings on to this person. Now, if the evil eye has already taken place, and it has happened and a person is being affected, the Sharia teaches us that this person who has actually passed the evil eye on to the next person, they should make whoo in a vessel of water, and then that water should be taken and poured over the one who has been affected. Not only
See this is in the case where you know who has actually passed the evil eye so somebody affects you with an evil eye and you are going through a difficult time and you know for sure that this is the person who probably praised me without seeking Allah subhanho wa Taala as blessings, you should go to that person with a vessel of water, ask them to make whoo in this water and then use that water to pour over yourself. So it puts an end to the evil eye This is taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hadith of Salim Hanif Nabila whereby he praised one of the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obviously, he had very nice skin, and he
praised this person. And then what happened this person became really sick. So the sort of loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah, Allah, Allah,
Allah, why would one of you kill his brother? Why did you not pray for blessings for him, wash yourself for him. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded the person to make widow, and then take that water that was in the vessel that he used to make widow and pour it over the person that was affected. So this is something that we can do if we know that the person or if we know the person who has actually caused us harm with the evil eye.
Now, what are we supposed to do in a circumstance where we don't know who actually passed us or passed on to us this evil eye? But before going on to that, we should also mention that the one who is asked to wash he is obliged to you shouldn't feel we first and foremost shouldn't feel shy to go and ask this person to wash. And when the person is asked to make this video in this vessel, he shouldn't refuse, he should do what he needs to
do. So if you are asked to wash then do so. So Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching us the importance of being obliging in these circumstances. Now what happens if you don't know the one who's actually passed on to this evil eye? Then you need to see it with the different car. The Rukia Stewart was from the shehryar or by the Sharia by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam you know, the different guys are the beacon imati lakita mattamy Chablis McCulloch I seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala in the perfect words of Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evil of that which He has created so many other doors out to be Kalamata he
mean Cooley shavon. In wahama woman Kalia in in LA. This is taught to us by de la Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam, I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. From every devil and every poisonous reptile and from every evil eye, there are many other car we don't have time to go into them all. However, this is a brief teaching of the evil eye. We have many questions about it. I hope this has done a little bit of justice to the questions that we might have. If we have some more as I said, feel free to call in or write in. But what we have to understand that the evil eye is a reality and we shouldn't take it for granted. We should be from amongst those who always seek Allah
subhanho wa Taala as blessings when we remember the successes and the goodnesses of our fellow Muslim brother or sister, so jacoba salat wa salam tells his children enter into the city from different doors and different gates. Obviously in those days, the cities were surrounded by high walls we can only just imagine and they were different gates leading into the city. So he said don't enter the city through one door, enter through a boyband Mutharika different doors. Then he tells them after that, that my opening an camino la himanshi iacobelli salatu salam continuing to advise him says that I cannot avail you against the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala at work. So here
jacobellis salatu salam is teaching them what that I can only advice at the end of the day, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the doer of everything, whatever he wants will happen. And as I said, we can only take precaution, the rest is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. We cannot do anything to avert the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I did say the other day, that if Allah subhana wa Taala wants something to come to you. If the whole world can get together and try to avert this blessing that Allah wants to come to you they won't manage. And if Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't want something to come to you, then the whole world can get together and try to give you a blessing. If Allah
doesn't want, it will never happen. So jacoba salatu salam tells him that listen, please do this for me enter through different doors. However, I cannot avail you against the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The decision is only for Allah subhanho wa Taala in in como la la la la Hito occult, the decision is only for Allah subhanho wa Taala upon him, I have placed my trust upon Allah subhanho wa Taala I have relied and upon him, let those who would rely rely upon while he failure to clean without killing upon Allah subhanho wa Taala should all those who base their reliance in they should place the reliance in Allah subhanho wa Taala when a mother Holloman Hazel amerihome Abu Americana
you can hear me Allah him and shake Illa Hagit and Phoenix jacoba Cava. Allah subhanho wa Taala says and when they entered from where the father had ordered them to
The difference was they did follow the father's instructions. They entered through the different doors. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that it did not avail them against Allah subhanho wa Taala as decree. It did not avail them against the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala were in the hula in Lima alumna Khurana sila Allah Subhana. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and indeed yaku balin salat wa salam was a possessor of knowledge because of what Allah subhanho wa Taala had taught him, but most people do not know. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying here that they entered through different doors. And the action of this or whatever they did, did not avail them or divert Allah subhanho wa
Taala as planned. If Allah planned that they still get affected with the evil eye they would have still been affected even if they entered through different doors that Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the practice of iacobelli so that was about the advice that He gave His children was advice based on knowledge. So his tactic was a good tactic. The fact that he advised his sons to do this was a good tactic. It is recommended we praise him for that he acted upon knowledge. However we are saying on top of that Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that even though they did what they did, if Allah subhanho wa Taala once he could have still affected him with it, we're in the hole I am in
Lima Allah that iacobelli salat wa salam without doubt he was he was knowledgeable. He was a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his actions were based on him when I came back from mesilla Moon but most of mankind do not know and this is affect how many of us actually place our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala how many of us actually take the means that Allah subhanho wa Taala has made a means for us and then place full trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala the main reasons why we suffer intense sadness is because the lack of the lack of placing our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala we really haven't understood that it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who is doing we are not doing whatever
Allah Subhana Allah subhanho wa Taala once will happen, whatever we want, it depends how Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to facilitate us and assistance. If he feels the thing we want is good for us. He will give it to us. So nothing is between our hands. Allah subhanahu wa taala is in control of everything in him we place our trust. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the understanding and to make us from amongst those who only and truly placed their trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala What am I the hawala use of our Ilaha Paula Indiana hook but atop the SP Mecca manual, so the brothers return, they enter upon us of Allah in salatu wa sallam. So when they ended
up on use of use of adding salatu salam took his brother to himself. And he said to his brother, obviously, after so long, he is seeing his blood brother, you can imagine the excitement you can imagine, you know, the feeling that we're going through use of Allah His salatu salam he is so he's been thinking of his blood brother for so long. So Pandora Bella, and now his plan worked. The brothers have come back and come back with who with this blood brother of his so use of it salat wa salam o la Ilaha he takes Binyamin to himself. He takes Binyamin to himself, and he says, indeed, I am your brother, so do not despair over what they used to do to Subhanallah finance Hepatitis B my
country I'm alone, we learn so many things from this respective listeners. The first thing that crops up to mind just by reading the I have a laptop the spy camera is the importance that we find in advice of a big brother to his younger one. Yusuf Alayhi salat wa salam is the older brother, he tells his younger brother do not despair over what they used to do to me. I am fine. I'm happy to see you. Obviously, the the fact that use of adding salatu salam took Binyamin to himself means they were in a secluded area and use of adding salatu salam gave him the good news that I am your brother who was lost or who was actually taken away from our father Kobani salatu salam as a young boy, but
I am fine. How are you? I hope you are okay. And listen, my little brother, don't worry for those things which these other brothers of us did. hamdulillah I am. Okay. So this is good advice and good understanding and good and clear tidings that Yusuf alayhi salatu salam actually gave to me and so now bieniemy knows that Yusuf Ali salatu salam is alive and he's well and not only is he alive and well, he is the Minister of Egypt. He is the one who is in charge of all the storage of all the food so Pamela, from where to where one could never imagine. But Binyamin also keeps it to himself. Now use of it salatu salam had a plan and we'll see this plan here fella Maggie Hassan Pooja has him on
a sci fi at the rally some more than a year to Hillary in the communist era. Cool. So now Yusuf alayhi salatu salam has his brother with him. He informs him that Listen, I'm
To make a plan, we got to do something so that we can I can keep you here with me. I can keep you here with me. So what does use of Allianz salatu salam do or what does he initiate he? After the supplies are placed in the bags.
After the food supplies, remember, they came back for food. And after the food is placed into the bags, the cabinet or the drinking cup of the king is placed into the bag of Binyamin. Right. So the bags are full. But we've been here means back a goblet or the Kings goblet is drinking glass which obviously has to be extremely valuable is placed in the bag have been yummy. So now what happens?
They start leaving and Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, his plan is to keep in Yemen with him. So what happens?
Us gets out of this and this cup is missing, who could have stolen the cup? Immediately I turned on to this big group of brothers why they are from a foreign country and you know the large group of them who else could have stolen the king's cup. So what happens and announced a cause out and says I've been I've been a year in the communist era cool. Old caravan. Indeed, you are thieves. So they get accused of being thieves. SubhanAllah. So the brothers, obviously in shock, what do they do? I mean, all of a sudden we hear we hear with good intentions we do just to take our our measure, we've paid for our measure, all of a sudden, we've been accused as thieves. So attention is brought to the
fact that this Goblin is missing. And these people are strangers. Who else can it be, they have to be the ones that had stolen the cup. Now, we need to understand that here. They are referred to as thieves. They are referred to as thieves. And obviously they didn't steal anything. So the fact that they are being referred to as thieves gives us the impression that the caller was the one who announced that this goblet was missing didn't know use of it. So that was when I was playing. Because if he knew use of it, so that was Sam's plan, he wouldn't have referred to them as thieves. Remember, choosing your words appropriately, making sure you think before you speak, don't just say
things and then you end up lying or you end up accusing somebody and you end up violating the rights of other people. So that we get the impression here that the person who announced that the government was missing and accused us of Allianz salat, wa salam brothers of stealing, he didn't know that use of alyansa latos law actually had initiated a plan. And I'm just speaking about choosing our choice of words. We'll see later on how use of it so that was lamb chose his words when speaking and addressing this issue of the theft.
So we get the impression that the caller didn't know. So what happens? The brothers turn around and come back all work. But while a mother,
the brothers turn back and address the situation may that have been when they said whilst addressing the situation that What is wrong? What are you missing? Why are you accusing us of stealing something? You know, obviously, they were innocent. If they had something to hide, they would have obviously ran away or they would have obviously started defending themselves as those who are guilty do here they are totally innocent. They are totally innocent and being accused of theft. So they turn around and say what's the problem? What are you guys missing follow up by rally mad at all una casa and Malik William and JB he wanna be his or him, they said we are missing the Goblet of the
So al Malik was drinking cup, and for the one who produces it is the reward of a camel's load.
So panela now already a reward is put out.
And we learn from this the permissibility of putting out a reward if something is missing. So they say that listen, we're missing the goblet. And whoever finds this goblet, for him will be a camels load the reward of a camels load. And this is the reward of the person who actually comes up with this goblet. So the brothers obviously totally innocent, they're not doubting the innocence, meaning they're not aware what is going on. They didn't come here to steal the question and what are you missing? If they were guilty, as I said, they would have fled, they are totally innocent. And they hear that now the goblet is missing we learned from that is that we can put out a reward this is
this is an important lesson that we do and obviously if we missing something, then it is permissible to actually put out a reward and say listen, the person who finds this thing will get a reward of so much. Now what happens they immediately go into defense they defend themselves Paulo de la de la de alimentum magic Subhana Allah and just look at the words I want you to see the power in the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala the way they defend themselves. Paulo de la isla de Anima magic there.
Enough see the fill up? Oh my goodness, everything they say by Allah subhanho wa Taala you people know us. They didn't just say hey, listen, we haven't stolen and we don't know what you're talking about.
They defend themselves so strongly. Look at the words that they use First they swear by Allah subhanho wa Taala, then they don't say we haven't stoled they say we have dealt with you before you know everything about us. And you know that we are not here to cause problems in the land. We are not here to cause corruption.
And we are not thieves we haven't stolen or loofa matches in quantum Caribbean. So now the people who work at the palace say, Okay, what do you think? Or what should be the recompense? If you are liars? What should be the punishment if we find this cup with you, and you are liars. So the brothers say, the recompense file which is a man who did a fee for the brother say that the recompense or the punishment for the one who is guilty, or the one whose bag this goblet is actually found in this drinking cup of the king, a very valuable cup, then the person whose bag This cup is found in he should be the punishment, meaning he should be taken as a slave. Now, the allama have
said that, in the sharing of that time, the rule was, whoever stole would be deported back to his country, whoever stole would be deported back to the country. Now, obviously, the aspect or the plan of use of Allianz Salatu was Salam was to keep Binyamin with him. It wouldn't have been viable that they find the cup in the bag of Guinea amin, and then he gets deported back to Palestine, because the plan of use of alayhi salatu salam was to keep Binyamin now. Someone might ask that why did you so badly salatu salam actually want to keep being I mean, obviously, Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, his father yaku Pauline salat wa salam went through such sadness when use of La salatu salam when
missing. Now by keeping Vinny I mean, it would cause even more difficulty and sadness for jacobellis salat wa salam. So the Allah mentioned that look, there definitely has to be his choice in keeping Binyamin definitely have to be revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And some of them I have mentioned that Binyamin wanted to stay with use of Allah salatu salam, obviously he he hasn't seen him for so many years. And obviously, he probably wasn't having that good a relationship with the other brothers. So that is the answer to the question. If somebody might ask that. Why did you suffer insalata some actually decide to keep Vinny I mean, when it would cause even more sadness to
jacoba in Salatu, salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best it seems like this was a revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why? Because use of alink salatu salam also places the cup in his bag. And I did say that if or the sharing of that time dictated that whoever has stolen he would be deported please country as the Allah have taught us, but by doing it this way, whereby they engage in discussion, the people of the palace told these brothers that what would be the punishment for the person who has stolen and the brothers themselves said that whoever has stolen keep him as a slave. So what happened now the tables attend the Sharia has been changed a little bit. Instead of Binyamin
being deported. The brothers themselves are saying that whichever bag you find this goblet in the person's bag, you find it in keep him as a slave. So what happens we learn here a lot of things I did read three is in a row. We learn here a lot of things first and foremost the fact that they said Paul with a lie.
Adamson they swear by Allah subhanho wa Taala I did mention at the beginning of today's lesson, that we only swear by Allah subhanho wa Taala and to Allah He Billa he Allah He visa halluf Allah some putting a tap between the word or before the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala putting a bar before the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala and putting a while before the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is known as hurtful possum. It is allowed to say what law he or Billa he or to lie so they swear by Allah subhanho wa Taala defending their rights. This teaches us again the importance of defending ourselves when we are right. We also learn that stealing is from corruption in the land,
because here we refer to stealing as corruption. They said look at the ATM to magic.
We didn't come here to cause corruption in the land. They didn't say we didn't come here to steal. They said we didn't come here to cause corruption again, the power in the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala teaching us so much from so little words are so few words. We learn here that the aspect of stealing and the practice of stealing is a practice which is which causes corruption in the land of Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from the evils of stealing, and we know what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about the one who steals he cursed him he said Allah and Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala curse v upon the one who has stolen all of our matches that oh, I
mentioned these ayat whereby the tables were turned they themselves said that Listen, if you find the cup in any of our bags, the person whose bag This cup is in keep him as a sleeve. So what happens they start searching the bag, they start going through the bags, but they don't start searching via means
Breakfast. They start by searching the other brothers bags. Why? Because if they open Benjamin's bag first and it was found it would look suspicious that how come the first bag you have open the goblet is inside. So Allah subhanaw taala tells us for better at him Pablo, we are a Mr. Raja hammy, we are a that we began searching the bags before the bag of Binyamin and then when they got to Binyamin bag, they extracted this cabinet from the back of their liquor kit. Now the use of Thus did we plan for Yusuf alayhi salatu salam Allah subhana wa valorizing Thus did we plan for use of Allah His salatu salam, and this shows us that use of onions for that was lamb was acting upon revelation.

Allah subhanho wa Taala says number five with Raj Chetty Manisha Woolfolk aka Li luminarium, we raised in degrees, those who we will end over every possessor of knowledge is one who is more knowledgeable.

We shouldn't be from amongst those who don't know, we are a nation who Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed with knowledge. The first word that entered the heart of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Accra which means to read, and we all know that we educate ourselves through reading, and
we Allah subhanho wa Taala made the utensil of Islam the Pim, Allah subhanho wa Taala said Allah, Allah, Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala said noon when Allah is Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala has made the utensil of Islam the pen, and what is the pen used for, for education and for learning. So Islam teaches us from the outset to learn to be educated to read and the Sharia has encouraged us in so many ways to become from among those who noticeable loss of Allah Allahu wa sallam said men, silica Perea Can you help me Sufi?

If you have knowledge, you will be
a worthy citizen of the communities that you live in. And this is something that we should encourage our youth to do time and time again, just before coming here. I had a talk at LMS. And I was telling the children the importance of seeking knowledge because at the end of the day, the children are the future of Islam. When we look at the future of Islam, we should see a bright future. It shouldn't look bleak and dark to us. At the moment, we find a large number of our youth engaged in activities that don't benefit them instead, it causes harm to them. And parents not paying attention to the actual needs of the children will lose their children to the avenues of drugs of immoral behavior
and all the evils that the kuffaar have placed around our children the evils of the veneer that will shape one has made beautiful or makes meaning that which shavon uses to entice a believer to so a parent should make sure that he he or she a mother and a father gives the child or the children that which they actually need my dear elders and brothers, my dear father's My dear mothers, my dear brothers and sisters, our children need education.

So Pamela, the brothers of use of Allah His salat wa salam. Now that the goblet has been found in
the bag of Binyamin, the brother of use of they wash their hands of being emin straight away and they actually accuse us of violence.
So that was a lamb as if they also washing their hands off him. They say, oh minister yesterday, they all said that if Binyamin has stolen fissara kokkola home in public, then his brother has stolen before him. Now who are they referring to, to use of Allah salatu salam, they don't know that they're talking to use of Allah in Serato, Salah. He don't know that this is use of standing in front of us He is the minister. They say, Listen, if he has stolen, then it's nothing new. His brother has done it before they totally washed their hands of vineya mean without even trying to be supportive over the brother to be supportive and helpful in the situation that they in trying to be
contributors to the problem. They just wash their hands up and say, listen, we have no interest in this. If he's stolen, then his brother has stolen before him. Now, some of them I have mentioned that Yusuf alayhi salatu salam stole an idol that was being used by his maternal grandfather, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best but even if he did steal that either, it's not actually stealing. It's putting correct that which was wrong. So we don't know if they were referring to that aspect. Or basically, if they were just trying to accuse us of adding salatu salam and wash the hands of the two brothers. So they arrogantly say he has cancer aka Holloman that if you are stolen, then he's
probably has stolen before him. So in vain they bluntly accused us of adding salatu salam but Yusuf Ali salatu salam once again, you know, his superior quality sticks out and stands out. What does he do for a sobre use of NFC while I'm up holla home panda anthem Shara McCann McKenna Allahu Allah movimiento seafood, Yusuf alayhi salatu wa sallam kept what they said within himself. He didn't reveal to them that What on earth are you talking about? I am Yusuf Ali salatu salam, after all the wrongs that you've done to me, you can come here and accuse me of stealing. You can come here and you know, you come here and you act in an irresponsible manner in this whole situation. You're not
even willing to assist Vinnie. I mean, he didn't say anything. He kept calm. He kept it as a secret. He didn't reveal to them his identity or your status. He had a plan and he was being patient on that plan. And then he says Pilate anthem shalom Makana Allahu Allah will be mythos if when he said that you are worse in position. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is most knowing of what you describe, Yusuf alayhi salaatu wa Salaam is telling them now the Lama has mentioned that use of adding salatu salam mentioned this to himself. He didn't say to them aloud, obviously if you said it to them aloud, they would have picked up that a this is a person who knows something about us. Maybe he's Yusuf alayhi
salatu salam, so he said it to himself, by Allah and to Sharon McKenna, you are in a worse of position. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is most knowledgeable of that we should describe again use of it. So that was Salam. Returning to Allah subhanho wa Taala you guys can say what you want. Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all knowledgeable, this is true telecoil the true aspect of placing one's trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala nothing else matters to me except Allah subhanho wa Taala if Allah is happy with me, and Allah knows I'm innocent, the rest doesn't matter. So use of adding salatu salam is patient. And we learn from this also, that in certain circumstances, you don't have to
defend yourself, meaning obviously for a Muslim for beneficial reasons. Because use of Allah salatu salam didn't defend himself here. He kept quiet, he had a plan. He He's not going to just leave the matter at least later on. He will address it. But he used wisdom. At this moment in time. We shouldn't address the situation he kept it to himself. This teaches us that in certain circumstances with wisdom, we don't have to defend ourselves straight away. There is a time and a place for everything. We will stop here for today. Our time has come to an end. I thoroughly enjoyed myself with you. I hope we are following the story. It's coming towards a close at the end of the day as I
