Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah he was early, he was happy

00:00:17--> 00:01:04

to listen As salam o Alaikum wa rahmatullah warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. It gives me great pleasure to be with you all, once again the Saturday the 19th of August 2006. As we go through the chapter of Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam. Now, in the last lesson that we had, we stopped at the point whereby the drinking cup of the king, this goblet was found in the bag of Binyamin. Remember, the cup was reported missing, and the brothers of Yusuf alayhi salatu wa sallam were accused of stealing this goblet. Why? Because obviously, they were from a foreign land, they were the only foreign group that was obviously in the vicinity. And thus, very quickly, fingers were pointed to them. Now they had

00:01:04--> 00:01:41

nothing to hide. They weren't guilty of anything. And they stood up and defended their rights. And we went through the part whereby they were saying that, listen, we haven't stolen anything. And then they were asked and said that, what would be the punishment for the one who's actually stolen? So they themselves dictated the punishment, they said, Okay, if any one of us has stolen, then the punishment for the person who has stolen is that he becomes a slave of few people, so he remains behind. And remember we said that Allah taught us that the law that was practiced in that time that if anyone was caught stealing them, they would be deported if they were from a foreign land and they

00:01:41--> 00:02:23

would be deported to that land. And that's it. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Cavalli could kidnap you. So this is how we planned for Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam mcan Eliyahu feeding in Malik Illa Yeshua Allah, he couldn't or he wouldn't have managed to take his brother or keep his brother with him except with the permission and wish of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah planned it in such a way that the brothers actually dictated and suggested a punishment or a possible a possible punishment for the one who actually stole the drinking cup of the king, this precious goblet, and it was found in the bag of Binyamin now when this goblet was found in the bag of beanie I mean, what

00:02:23--> 00:03:04

happened? They immediately washed their hands of bieniemy remember we stopped at the Iowa by they said oh yes Rico cassava Holloman. They just wash their hands totally of Binyamin. And, in fact, in the same breath, they just insulted Yusuf alayhi salatu salam because they said that if he is stolen, then it's nothing new. Why? Because his brother has stolen before him. They didn't realize that they were actually talking to us via his Salatu was Salam himself, and Yusuf Alayhi. Salatu was salam, obviously, the patient person that he was, he exercised that patience. Obviously he had a plan in place, he wasn't going to blow his cover. He just kept it to himself. He didn't get angry.

00:03:04--> 00:03:47

He didn't lash out, of course, many of us without even questioning, if somebody had to accuse us in that particular manner, especially after the wronged us time and time again, they got rid of Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, they accusing us of it. So that was a time of stealing, yet they still use value. So that was stolen from his father from in front of his own father, never mind stealing material things. They stole a human being, they took a innocent or an innocent child, an innocent human being. They stolen him from in front of the eyes of his loving father and got rid of him in the most evil of ways. So they are the guilty party. And on top of that was being guilty. They say

00:03:47--> 00:04:26

that well. If Binyamin has stolen then his brother had stolen before him. So this shows the great patients that use of it. So that was said I'm head, he just kept calm, kept cool. He had a plan in place, and he was being patient and waiting for the plan to take its course. So what did you follow him? So that was what I'm saying. Remember I said that? After he mentioned that? He said it himself because he said he said what he said allowed them, his cover would have been blown. So after they said that if Binyamin has stolen he's probably use of Serato. Sir I'm still before for a Sabra Yousuf enough, see when I'm up Hello. So you Safari Serato. Sam kept everything within himself. And

00:04:26--> 00:04:59

he did not reveal it to them. He didn't reveal anything. He didn't answer them in regards to his accusation that they made a document this teaches us also that in certain circumstances, you are allowed to keep quiet, you are allowed not to defend yourself, obviously, temporarily, meaning you don't just not defend yourself totally. But for this temporary moment in time. I won't defend myself. Why? Because you have a Muslim, you have a bigger benefit to gain from afterwards. So with hikma with wisdom, Yusuf Ali salatu salam kept it to himself and then

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

He said to himself by the end to Shara McCann, Allahu Allah movimiento sifu and he said to himself that you are in a worse position and worse situation and Allah subhanho wa Taala is most knowing of what you describe. Now, the brothers obviously took an oath by Allah subhanho wa Taala in regards to Binyamin, they are in a predicament right now. So many years ago they got rid of Yusuf alayhi salatu salam because so much hurt to the Father, and now after taking an oath, but Allah subhanho wa Taala and the father made Allah subhanho wa Taala the witness over the oath that they took, they are in a predicament. Now, this Binyamin who they promised they would bring back to jacoba salatu salam is

00:05:43--> 00:06:24

here, or will have to remain behind as a slave he would have to be remained behind with the Minister of Egypt. Obviously they didn't know it was Yusuf alayhi salatu salam Kalia, you will as he is in lella who have been shaken Kabira for who had an American in Nana Raka mycelium Subhana Allah, they said oh, Aziz. And remember, they referring to use of Allah in Serato. Salam as, as he is. So use about a Serato Sam first when he was bought as a slave in Egypt, who bought him as he is the Minister of Egypt. So there are a number of times it also mentioned that this shows us or guides us to know that Yusuf alayhi salatu salam might have taken over his job in particular because now he

00:06:24--> 00:06:35

was being referred to as, as he is. So they said the brothers of Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, they said, Oh, as he is, indeed he has a father who is an old man. So take one of us in his place.

00:06:36--> 00:07:14

So had Allah they offered to swap they said, Look, take one of us in the place of Binyamin. So the shows that to a certain extent, they did change the ways because they offering one of their own selves in place of Binyamin. They saying that, look, we have a father, he's an old man, they are remembering the time when they cause so much hurt to him when they got rid of use of adding salatu salam and they remembering the oath that they took by Allah subhanho wa Taala was the father and they remembered that he the father made Allah subhanho wa Taala a witness for now they are in a predicament. So they say listen, oh, as his own minister, obviously, they saw goodness and use of

00:07:14--> 00:08:02

honey salatu salam they didn't know it was him but they saw goodness in this minister before let us try and negotiate. Let us try and convince him to take one of us and let us take Binyamin with us back home. At least it would be a better excuse to the Father. They look something happened but he has been I mean, he's here but we sacrificed one of us over there. So Yusuf Ali salat wa salam said, Allah Allah, he sought refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala Why did he seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala because obviously, the accused was who was Binyamin. Now, if he had given Binyamin back to them and taken somebody who was not accused in the face of veniamin then that would be oppression.

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

So what does he say my other law and who the

00:08:06--> 00:08:49

men are Jelena Medina in de la either Lavalle mode. This is showing him His justice, obviously there was a plan that he had in place, but in reality was also being just he said that I seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala that we take a person other than the person who we found our possessions with, and look at the words of his suffering salat wa salam, he didn't say, I cannot take the one who didn't steal and let the one who stole go He didn't say the one who stole and the one who didn't steal. He chose his words appropriately. Why? Because he knew nobody stole so what did he say? He said, in lemon witchetty nametags except the one who is who who we found our our goods and property

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

with

00:08:51--> 00:09:17

because remember, the goblet was found with Binyamin, so he didn't call him a thief. He said I can only take the person who our property was found with so he chose his words perfectly precisely why he knew that his other Binyamin wasn't the thief. And if we remember, when we when we spoke about the time when a caller called out and accused these brothers of stealing, he actually said a year to her in

00:09:18--> 00:09:55

the corner accused them of stealing. And we did say this shows us that the caller wasn't aware of the plan of Yusuf alayhi salatu salam because if he was aware, he wouldn't have referred to them as thieves. So because he wasn't aware of the plan, and they suspected and he suspected that this goblet was in their parcel and in their package, he announced them as thieves but Yusuf alayhi salatu salam knows that these are not thieves. It was his plan. And the Goblin was placed in Binyam his back so he didn't say I cannot let the thief go and take one of us. He said I cannot let the one in whose luggage this goblet was found because he chose his words appropriately. Again, teaching us

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

the importance of choosing our words, especially in business, respect.

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

listeners, it is extremely easy to make a halal transaction haram extremely easy. Just by not watching how we speak, we very easily can lie and immediately make a halal transaction Haram. And we did speak about the aspect of one lying in regards to his cost price before. So we need to make sure that we watch our words properly, we watch what we say probably not only in business in everything that we do when dealing with one another with problems in the home out of the home with our children. When discussing with one another, we need to make sure that we look after our words we are constantly guided by angels who write down everything we say and do. So we have to make sure that we

00:10:41--> 00:10:52

look after these words, monitor ourselves and speak that which is true and speak that which is just and speak that which is appropriate. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to guard our tongue.

00:10:54--> 00:11:26

So it was about a salatu salam seeks protection from Allah subhanho wa Taala and says my Allah, I seek Allah subhanaw taala as protection. I cannot give you Binyamin. Obviously he didn't say Binyamin, but he said I cannot give you the one who is or the one whose luggage we found this, this goblet in and take one of you in his place. If we do this, then we will be from amongst those who are unjust, who will be from amongst those who oppress for them mistake as women who call asuna Jia, kala kabiru an empty Alamo.

00:11:27--> 00:11:31

La como el camino LA, warming up Luma formatting for you.

00:11:33--> 00:12:15

So what happens? Now they secluded themselves, they were in despair. They immediately had to have a meeting. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that the big amongst them. He played the role of a bigger brother got them together and said, lm lm, do you not know abakada de como si Camila LA. Do you not know that your father has taken upon you and oath by Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Subhana Allah, He is playing the role of an elder brother. He's advising him that listen, people, we are in a predicament over here. This is a big problem. We shouldn't just take it as lightly. I mean, just before that, they just said that Listen, if Binyamin Stoughton his brothers told before they weren't

00:12:15--> 00:12:54

willing to accommodate the situation, they were willing to wash the hands of it. He gets them together and says, Get your act together. Do you not know that we took an oath with our father that we're going to bring him back when Obama forgotten for us? And he's reminding them about what happened with Yusuf Ali salatu salam that we failed in our duty with Yusuf Ali salatu salam, now we've taken an oath, how are we going to fail again. Now, what we should learn and note from this ayah is that Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Allah Kabira from Allah subhanho wa Taala distinctly mentions the activity and actions of the big brother. He points out that it was the big brother who

00:12:54--> 00:13:37

spoke out. Now, if we recall, I know it was a long time ago, but at the beginning of the sutra, when the brothers initially planned to kill us, so that was set up. Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Allah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala didn't say, Allah kabiru. He said, Allah illumine home that somebody from amongst them said, Now, I didn't mention that the aroma of Tafseer said that, that someone from amongst them, meaning the oldest brother said, so the automotive seat explained that it was the older brother who was speaking, but Allah subhanho wa Taala didn't say it was the older brother. He just said, I thought you know why, in that circumstance, they were planning something wrong. So I

00:13:37--> 00:14:17

mentioned the name of the person who did it and spoil his name to Pamela. Look at the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Here, the brother, the oldest brother is playing his role as a brother, he's doing good. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Allah kabiru he acknowledges him. He mentioned his name. He says the oldest brother is the one who got things together, gathered up the rest of the brothers and had a meeting with him. At the beginning, Allah subhana wa tada kept him unknown. Why? Because he didn't play his role as a big brother. So Allah subhana wa tada and once again, the power in the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala Subhana Allah, Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah

00:14:17--> 00:14:27

subhanho wa Taala distinctively, teaching us here, how to cover up the sins and the low points and the low moments of our Muslim brothers.

00:14:28--> 00:15:00

Don't just go out there and advertise the low moments of our Muslim Brothers lives, the low moments in their lives that which they experience the bad which they may have done to Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala here covers his aim covers the big brother's defect. He didn't play a role as a big brother. So Allah didn't say the big brother didn't know that I just said, apart from that, a sale from amongst them said somebody from amongst them said don't kill you. So if you must do something, throw him in the well. That wasn't a praiseworthy

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

Think so Allah kept him alone. But here he played his role as a big brother. He did something praiseworthy. So Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Allah Kabir home so this is something we should note the importance of hiding the bad qualities of others, the importance of hiding the bad qualities and low moments of others, how apt is the choice of words in the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala So, after he says me problema forgotten for use of that we failed with use of Allah salat wa salam, Phelan abraha, Fallon, Abraham,

00:15:34--> 00:16:14

Abbey, or Kamala, who Lee, who was a little hacky me, the big brother says, and this is courageous of him, after telling them that, you know, you took an oath with your father, you know, after we also had failed with these values, so that was awesome. He says, I will never leave this land until my father permits me or until Allah subhanho wa Taala decides for me, so Han Allah, and he says, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the best of judges. So what does he do? He's willing to sacrifice himself. He's playing the role of the bigger brother, he's saying, Listen, if Binyamin can go, I will stay behind with him, you guys carry on back, I will not return unless and until my father

00:16:14--> 00:16:55

allows me to or until Allah subhanaw taala decides me to do what I'm after. I've mentioned that by him saying my father allows me to meaning my father understand the situation, and he forgives the situation. And he accepts that I come back. And when he says that until Allah subhanho wa Taala permits me to meaning until Allah subhanho wa Taala allows me to be released. So I'm not returning, unless my father allows me to or unless I have Binyamin with me, then only will I come home. So we learn from this, the aspect that I discussed before that no matter how much bad we see in a person, they are always good points. Remember, these brothers did bad. They did bad, but there is good in

00:16:55--> 00:17:37

them. Look at here how the big brother is willing, he's willing to stay behind sacrifice himself. Why? Because he understands the oath that he took with his father. And he understands the seriousness of the problem. And you understand that this is his younger brother. So he says, Listen, he tells the rest of the caravan that you guys better carry on energy in a vehicle for Kuya urbanna in the black a sock. One na shahina illa de ma alumna, lahmacun, Allah be happy, then he says return to your father and say, oh, our Father, indeed Your son has stolen. And we did not testify, except what we know, we wouldn't have believed that he could have stolen or he would have stolen except

00:17:37--> 00:18:19

that we found him with the golden cup or with the goblet or the drinking cup of tea King. So if we didn't find him with it, we wouldn't have believed them. However, we found Vinny amin with that cup, and thus we are telling you that he has stolen so the big brother saying Go and tell our father that listen, Vinnie amin has actually stolen and we wouldn't testify to it, you know, unless we were pretty sure and we are Shall we actually saw them removing this goblet from his back. So they say that will not testify except what we know. And we will not witnesses of the unseen meaning you won't be happy. We don't know the unseen, we couldn't have imagined that this boy would go and do that. It

00:18:19--> 00:18:56

was I mean, if you asked us to think of the worst thing that could have happened, not one of us could have said that Binyamin would steal. So we tell you the reality the big brother thing, go home and explain to our father the reality that this is what happened. And we don't know the unseen, we couldn't have imagined that this boy could have done something like this, we learn from this that we should testify to that which we know the fact that the brothers are saying here that we only testify, because we saw the cup being taken from his bag. In fact, they said that we do not testify except what we know.

00:18:57--> 00:19:34

That is the exact translation of the AI are they saying we do not testify except to that which we know. This teaches us what that we should only testify to that which we know we shouldn't stand up and take a person by Allah and be a witness to a crime that we didn't actually witness or we take a person by Allah subhanho wa Taala. to that which we really don't know about. We weren't involved in we just there to support evil, we just they to be oppressive and a person who takes a person and takes witness to that which he hasn't witnessed. There's nothing we can say about him except that he is being an oppressor. So we learn from this idea that we should only testify to that, which we

00:19:34--> 00:19:42

know, was a little corny Atletico naffaa, whether you're a lefty valneva, or in this article.

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

He says, tell our father, that he may ask the city in which we work meaning Egypt and the caravan in which we came, and indeed we are truthful. Remember, those days they will travel in a large group. So many families together, make up a caravan or so many

00:20:00--> 00:20:32

groups together, they make up a caravan and they will travel together. So they are coming with are they telling the father that listen after we tell him that Binyamin stole authenticate this information by asking the people of the city that we were in and asking the caravan that we were with, you know about as well we people who I mean who are negligent, were we people who actually mean harm. What are we trying to get rid of Binyamin ask them. What in Allah Sadiq Khan, and indeed we are truthful. Now look how much they have to tell the father over here.

00:20:33--> 00:21:14

They are truthful over here. This is not a lie. They are truthful. Binyamin in his bag, the goblet was found he was accused of stealing, they had to leave him behind. But now they are. They are innocent. They are honest. But they have to tell the father so much more. Why? Because of the evil they did at the beginning. At the beginning, they were lying. And they came and used emotional politics and blackmail and came with forged evidence to try and make the father believe they always jacoba salatu salam is a prophet knew that there was more to it than that. And he said to me, I have an I will have a beautiful patient. Now over here, they are honest, they are truthful, what they

00:21:14--> 00:21:45

telling the father is in reality, true, but they have to come up with so much more. You know, if you don't believe us, ask the people of the city that we were in and ask the caravan that we were in and our Father we are telling you without doubt that we are truthful. We are not lying. So what does jacoba salatu salam say? Allah Bella, so we're at Lancome and for sukham amre for Southern Jamil Isola, who at any beam Jamia in the hoo hoo animal Hakim La ilaha illa Allah

00:21:47--> 00:22:32

look at the herds of jacoba salatu salam, the same words which he uttered at the time when he received the news that use of Iranian salatu salam was missing the same things that he said he said it here again, he said Raja, your souls have enticed you to do something. Your souls units of Hanover, your nefs has enticed you to do something. So patience is the most fitting thing for me for suburban Jimmy. remember the time when you surviving salat wa salam was reported, eaten by all but it is a facade, Jamila will have a beautiful patience again, and it's the rock within Hydra here jacoba salatu salam composes himself, he holds himself together, he doesn't drown in the heat of the

00:22:32--> 00:23:14

moment, he doesn't let the moment get the better of him. He keeps himself calm. And he says that your souls have enticed you to do something. So patience is the most fitting thing. And this, again, teaches us an important lesson that if somebody has a bad reputation, and they mean well, and afterwards, what happens? They come or they make a mistake, and now they try to justify the mistake, it can be difficult for them to actually win that case and win and win the hearts of the person that they have made that mistake to it's possible. I mean, jacobellis latos law Mr. Thinking of Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, I mean, this young boy who was so beloved, he was gone. He was he was supposed

00:23:14--> 00:23:52

to go play with his brothers and they come back and say that he's eaten by a wolf. And now Binyamin. I feared so much for them to take him and and then I made them take an oath of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then I made Allah subhanho wa Taala a witness to the whole agreement between us and now they coming and telling me that being human also is lost and that he stolen it remember iacobelli salat wa salam, new Binyamin. He knew the character of Binyamin he knew that this boy isn't a thief, this boy is not capable of doing this thing which they are which they have accused him of doing. Obviously, he is guilty, but not actually guilty, but he is part of the brand of use of Allah so

00:23:52--> 00:24:38

that was from the goblet is found, but according to iacobelli Serato Sarah, this boy can do it and according to jacoba salat wa salam, the rest of these brothers it is capable for them to do wrong, why? Because they have done it before. Then what does jacobellis ratusan say? As Allah who TMDB him Jamia in the who who would animate Hakeem Subhana Allah Allah, what a loving father can we imagine the situation? jacoba salat wa salam is Subhana Allah, can we even try and comprehend the situation that jacoba his salatu salam is in he is now minus two sons minus three sons. Why the oldest brother also stayed behind. He has every right to lose his mind every right to go mad every right to lose he

00:24:38--> 00:25:00

senses every right to become depressed. I mean, who wouldn't go into a state of depression of intense sadness after you don't lose one son, not two sons but three sons Subhanallah and you lost three sons and the news that came to you about them you don't believe the way they've been lost? You know that they

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

Foul Play over here, according to Jaco peninsula to slam this foul play even in regards to Binyamin so can you imagine the state that he is in it is very easy for someone in this moment to do what to fall prey to what is still

00:25:14--> 00:25:49

there to let the moment get the better of him to let himself drown in the heat of the moment to actually use his census of Canada three children gone. He says, I will have a beautiful patient. My interest is in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then he says as Allahu at any beam Jamia, perhaps Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring them all to me. So Pamela is talking about all his three children. He's not talking about one he's not talking about the other one is not talking about the third, even though you know, he's in a state of shock. He remembers all three sons that remember the big one was from amongst those who got rid of

00:25:50--> 00:26:34

him at the beginning. Even with that, he makes dua for all of them that maybe Allah subhanho wa Taala will come to me with all my children. Subhana Allah, three of his sons away, and he says, I will be patient what Eman? Yeah kupari salat wa salam possessed. What good thoughts did he have in Allah subhanho wa Taala. What optimism once again, respected listeners idea mothers, my dear fathers, my dear brothers and sisters do our problems come close to that which iacobelli salat wa salam, when you our problems come close to the trials and tribulations that Yusuf alayhi salaatu wa Salaam suffered, they held themselves together, they went through every test of Allah subhanho wa

00:26:34--> 00:27:13

Taala and that's a lot of it is that you were gentle, raise them in rank and continued raising them and this should be hope for us. This should be a lesson for us. This should be something that encourages us to pick ourselves up. We may have gone through a divorce. We may have lost a loved one we may have put on a bit of weight because of depression. We may have lost hope in the dunya we may have shaped one spinning us right and lift making us lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala Let this be a lesson for us that no matter what we are going through people before I so went through much worse. Last summer while he was selling went through much worse so much testing Allah subhanho wa

00:27:13--> 00:27:42

Taala gave him at the time when he went to five. Remember when the sutra was revealed, it was revealed to lift the spirits of the Muslims at the time and I said at the beginning that it was revealed at the time towards the end of the month competed after this little loss of Allah Allah he was actually returned from five after they mocked at him after the jeered at him after the stone him blood was pouring from his buddy Subhana Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals in the story of use of to make him optimistic to optimize him and the Sahaba

00:27:44--> 00:28:26

Let this be a time that we become optimistic all the troubles we have, we push it aside and we place our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and we have a beautiful patience and we know that that is from Allah subhanho wa Taala is only happening happening to us Why? Because he loves us. And the dunya is a place of testing and for a believer is the author and the author is forever May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding. Then jacoba salatu salam says in the who, who Allah Allah Subhana Allah in the who who will ultimate Hakeem Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the knowing and his most why's Allah subhanho wa Taala knows when my children is Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most

00:28:26--> 00:29:11

wise he knows why he's testing me like this. My patience is in Allah subhanho wa Taala what Allah and whom Allah Azza Allah use of Baba but I know whom he knows me for who I am, and he turned away from them. Yaqoob Ali salat wa salam turned away from his children. He went to a secluded area, he said by himself and he said Kalia, Savanna use of of your inner homeland was me for her covering all my sorrow over use of AlLahi Salatu Salam jacoba salat wa salam is remembering Yusuf Ali salatu salam. Now he's not Binyamin, and he's lost his oldest son. All the losses that he has suffered is reminding him of the first loss which he which he suffered the loss of who have use of Allah He

00:29:11--> 00:29:55

salatu salam, he says, Oh my sorrow over use of Allah His salat wa salam. And his eyes became a light from obviously extreme sadness. And as a result, he lost his sight from the grief. And he was of that a suppressor meaning he suppressed it, he didn't go out to his children and cry out his sadness. He was a human being. It was he I mean, it is out of human nature, that one actually feel sad. So this shows us that you are allowed to feel sad over your losses. You are a human being, you can feel someone passes away, you feel sad. When the son of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, he was also said so being said is from the nature of mankind from the nature of the

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

children of Adam and Eve so that was sent him so this teaches us that you can be said what

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

Not allowed in Islam is that you start wailing and you start screaming and you start tearing your shirts and you start becoming a person who is out of control and you start seeing yellow Why me? Why are you doing this to me? What did I do to deserve this? These are all things which are serious in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to make sure that we never lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala iacobelli salatu salam here, what does he do? He turns away from them. And he says, Oh, my sorrow, overuse of Allah salatu salam, his eyes became white because of the grief that he was feeling for the loss of his children. But he was a suppressor of his feelings. He didn't go there

00:30:36--> 00:30:39

and let it out. He kept it to himself, follow the law.

00:30:42--> 00:31:22

So what did the sun say? They said by a lot you still remember Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam. By Allah subhanho wa Taala. You still remember Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam heptad akula, heroine otaku nominal Harley King. This is what the children are telling the father, they said that you will remember Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam until you become fatally ill or become of a meaning of those who are highly keen from those who have perished. I mean, how long are you going to remember Yusuf alayhi salaatu wa Salaam for so long? It's 30 years more than 30 years now. What are you still remembering him for? Are you going to continue to remember him until you become crazy until you

00:31:22--> 00:31:26

become mental until you become sick? Or until you even die?

00:31:27--> 00:32:08

Now what was the aim when these brothers got rid of use of Allah in salat wa salam in the first place? The aim was to get jacobellis. Well that was not to forget about Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, they said that if we get him away from Yaqoob alayhis salam, then he will forget about use of Allah salat wa salam. The plan here shows that it totally backfired against them after so many years, jacobellis. So that was me saying, oh, he's declaring how much he misses Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, yeah, I suffer. And I use of, Oh, my subtle over use of such beautiful words in Arabic language. And you'll only understand the effect of the statement of iacobelli salatu salam, if you understand it

00:32:08--> 00:32:46

in the Arabic language. So this is what they are telling the Father. Now obviously, we did say that jacoba salatu salam suppress these feelings, he didn't show it in front of him, but he could have told them that Listen, you know what I'm thinking of use of Allah in salatu salam and that they responded. The fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala said he was a suppressor. He did not express the extent of his grief, or his anger at what he suspected of his sons, or what he suspected his sons had done. He was patient, depending on Allah subhanho wa Taala. He didn't go and show his feelings totally out there to his children, he went away from them, and he spoke of his sorrow. And he

00:32:46--> 00:33:09

suppressed that which he was feeling and as I said, this teaches us that you are allowed to feel sad, it is human nature to feel sad. However, don't go overboard. Don't show everybody what you're feeling, keep it between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the best listener. In fact, the person who shows the UK on that person also needs Allah subhanho wa Taala to listen to them. So why not go to Allah subhanho wa Taala directly.

00:33:12--> 00:33:14

So the tell the father that our Father,

00:33:15--> 00:33:54

I mean, how much longer you remember Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, for many Armenians gone, the oldest brother is gone, and he's still talking about use of are you going to carry on until you become mentally ill or until you die? And as I said the plan backfired. In fact, he only remembered Yusuf alayhi salatu salam more, and he felt for his son, more Subhana Allah so this teaches us that evil doesn't ever win. Never ever plan evil and think that you will be successful. Remember the I said the other day in Allah Allah usually Ramadan Musudan Allah subhanho wa Taala does not support the way of those who do wrong. He doesn't make that which those who do wrong successful Allah subhanho

00:33:54--> 00:33:58

wa Taala will never it is the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala in his creation in the law you

00:33:59--> 00:34:37

have seen father in law school bestie Hosni illallah wa sallam amin Allah him Allah Tana moon jacoba salat wa salam responds by saying, I only complain of my suffering and my grief to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I know from Allah that which you do not know, he's saying that I'm saying all these things, but I'm not complaining to you. It doesn't mean that you might have heard me that I'm actually speaking to you. I am only complaining and meaning. I'm only declaring my suffering one hour that you will gel Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I know from Allah that which you do not know. So there's no meaning. He's explaining to them that Listen, I am even if you did hear me speak about

00:34:37--> 00:34:59

Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, there's no need for you to tell me how long are you going to remember that? I am complaining to Allah subhanho wa Taala I am expressing my suffering to Allah subhanho wa Taala and I know from Allah subhanho wa Taala that which you do not know, on a school bus. You know, my suffering, my grief was nice. Nice.

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

sadness, the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And as I said, you have to understand this in the Arabic language to actually feel exactly what is being expressed. And I did mention that the Quran has this exquisite ability to describe Subhan Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala describes events in such detail that when you read it and understand it properly, you can actually get a feeling of the seriousness of the event or the reality of the situation that it's actually describing. And this is the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In his, in his narration. Why? Allah Moomin Allah humanitarian and I know from Allah subhanho wa Taala that which you know, not we learn how important it is

00:35:39--> 00:36:14

respected listeners to seek solace from Allah subhanho wa Taala. I mean, we can't even imagine what Yusuf alayhi salaatu wa Salaam is going through here. You're suffering. So that was what he went through, and iacobelli serrato Islam what he's going through, we can't imagine the grief of a father and you know, the fathers who are who might be listening to this broadcast. I mean, you are hamdulillah you have your children with you Just imagine for one moment that your child is lost somewhere in Java. In Java, nevermind exported to a foreign land, and now 30 something years has gone and now another two children go away. Never mind the father, even a mother, we can't imagine

00:36:14--> 00:36:53

what a parent can go through and what jacobellis latos law is going through, but what does he do? He pours his heart, he's a human being, he feels the emotions, who does he put his hat to? Allah subhanho wa Taala. Today, we go out of our way, in pouring our hearts to people. And if we're not careful, we speak to people who enjoy that we are in a predicament, and this is effect. We make sure that every person we see, we make sure that we tell them of the sufferings that we are having the problems that we have at home, we advertise the difficulties in the home to everybody outside the home. And as I said, if we don't be careful to people who actually love that we have problems in the

00:36:53--> 00:37:30

home and this is a fact respected elders and brothers My dear mothers, my dear sisters, instead of crying for palitana only seeking help from one Allah azza wa jal, why do we want to go out and make everybody aware of our situation? And if we have people like that I've come across them personally, every single person they see, they choose to pour their hearts out the problems that they are going through to them. And in reality, the problem never gets easier. It never improved. It only gets worse. Why? Because they put in the hearts to people who also pour the hearts to Allah subhanho wa Taala people who have to pour their hearts to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So why not go straight to

00:37:30--> 00:38:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala instead of going to people seek assistance in Allah subhanho wa Taala not in people yes, you might feel that I need someone to talk to to get this off my chest Lakeshore it is a person who you can trust a person who wishes good for you a person who is going to make it for you not go out and tell tales about you. So we need to find solace in Allah subhanho wa Taala. Not, you know, losing hope at the first moment that we get, and then rush to the pharmacists and the doctors and then request medication from them sleeping tablets. As I said, can we actually narrate and relate our problems to the problem that jacobellis salatu salam went through and use of Allah Salatu

00:38:17--> 00:39:04

was Salam. So before we decide to pop a pill of Prozac in our bodies, to deal with the depressions, let us first take medication in turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala and crying to Allah subhanho wa Taala and how, with a lot of patience, with a lot of conviction, don't put your hands up and merely say Allah helped me but your heart is not with Allah subhanho wa Taala please your heart sincerely with Allah subhanho wa Taala and seek Allah subhana wa Taala as assistance, know and understand that you and I will be tested. It is a fact of life. Allah subhanho wa Taala has said that he will just us as Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah lm Kabuto Alif Lam Meem as Ibanez a youth Raku yaku Amanda

00:39:04--> 00:39:05

home life don't

00:39:06--> 00:39:43

do the people think that it is enough for them? Just to say we believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala Do you think it's enough for you just to say I believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to leave you alone, he will be tested and if Allah test you, he loves you. And the reason why I am stressing on this point on the point of depression and anxiety and trials and tribulations and how we should deal with it is because today, a lot of Muslims are complaining from this from sleepless nights caused by depression from overweight caused by depression from low quality of life caused by depression. My dear mothers, my dear sisters, my dear brothers, my dear elders, let us get ourselves together. It

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

does take a grip of our lives, get things together, our lives are in our hands and we have Allah subhanho wa Taala How can we lose hope when we have Allah subhanho wa Taala We are from the followers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam We are from amongst those who have accepted the prophecy

00:40:00--> 00:40:37

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam We are from amongst those who have declared Allah subhanho wa Taala as one, Allah has showered us His mercy by making us Muslims, if Allah subhanho wa Taala didn't make us Muslims, and we know how weak we are today as Muslims, if Allah didn't make us Muslims who would even come to us and invite us towards Islam. So the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen us to be from those who are intergender This in itself should keep us happy. The fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala did this. And if he didn't give us anything else, it was more than enough. But Allah, He gave us a chance to get to gender why he made us from the followers of

00:40:37--> 00:41:18

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he made us Muslims. He made us from amongst those who read the Quran, who have listened from the Quran, who we from amongst those who come from a Deen which is a way of life, so much boundaries of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us and even on top of that, we may come from good homes, we can afford to send our children to good schools, you know, we have children, we have good health so panela or how is it that we can actually be depressed and thus, I am hopping? I know I am hopping. Why because of the seriousness that we find the Muslim Ummah today, in we see this being a situation whereby we are just complaining time and time again, about

00:41:18--> 00:41:55

depression, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to take us out of the evil avenue of depression, my dear fathers and mothers, my dear brothers and sisters, get yourself together. And this is also a message to myself. We want to get ourselves together no matter what Allah subhanaw taala puts us through Allah subhanaw taala only test us why because He loves us and Allah subhanho wa Taala does not oppress anybody. So seek refuge in Allah azza wa jal so jacobellis Islam says that Listen, I'm only complaining to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I know from Allah subhanho wa Taala that which you do not know remember, he was a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala with the knowledge that Allah

00:41:55--> 00:42:40

subhanho wa Taala taught him What does he say? He says, Yeah, but he it herbal, assuming use of but the Hester's who made use of what he was assuming rohilla in law, he assumed approach rohilla como Catherine, La ilaha illAllah What a beautiful idea what beautiful words of jacoba salatu wa sallam such words that are apt that can be used to round up everything I was speaking just now about depression and about the fact that we shouldn't lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he says, I know from Allah that which you do not know. So all my sons go and find out about Yusuf Alayhi salat wa salam, I know from Allah that which you do not know. And do not despair. Do not despair. Do not

00:42:40--> 00:43:29

lose hope in the relief do not lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Who? La Rochelle il como Catherine. Indeed, no one disappears in a no one loses hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala except those who disbelieve Subhana Allah, Allah such words to round up everything I was saying about depression. Look at the words of iacobelli serrato Sullivan, remember he is a man being tested three times away from him. He is in old age. So Pamela and he is the one who is saying here in New Rochelle, como Catherine, nobody loses hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala except those who have disbelieved. Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah we are from those who have believed we are

00:43:29--> 00:44:05

from the followers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We are from the ones who have declared Allah subhanho wa Taala as one it is impossible for us to lose hope. That's why I say it again. How can a Muslim actually suffer intense sadness as soon as they plan what is you as soon as shaper whispers to you and reminds you of the low moments in your life or the difficulties that you are going through? remember Allah subhanho wa Taala remember that you are a believer, remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala has created for you. Remember that if Allah loves you, he will test you and with every test that you pass, he will raise your rank in general, Allah wants better for you. Allah

00:44:05--> 00:44:49

doesn't oppress, in everything that he does, there is good for you Be patient and pass the test of Allah azza wa jal, I was stopped with this idea today because it is a beautiful idea. I want us to ponder over it, go back, read over it, memorize it, understand it, digest it and use it every single day of your lives. In no lay assume erosion left in little Komal Cafiero and nobody loses hope in the mercy of Allah except those who have disbelieved. Anyone who feels depressed now and is listening to this broadcast.

00:44:49--> 00:44:59
