Come on Rahim. hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen. We'll be history and also live on the salamander Hanuman the V in the Vienna Muhammad Ali. He was such a big Marine. About We begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa taala. And we request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:00:16--> 00:00:20

to Kampala Lavinia amico Salah mal will accept from us our deeds.

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

I mentioned to the Gemma and the congregation after the the issue of prayer, and perhaps it's beneficial if we repeat it especially for those joining us online. Just the benefits just the benefits, that perhaps it will encourage us to push a little bit harder this evening. And halfway through Rajab, Rahim Allah

00:00:46--> 00:00:47

He mentioned

00:00:49--> 00:00:57

a reflection from Ibn Hoover era. Persimmon Allah may Allah have mercy upon them both. That if

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

an odd night from the nights of the 10 nights of Ramadan

00:01:05--> 00:01:11

meets with the night of Jamar, which is tonight, then there's a good chance

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

that it may be late into

00:01:15--> 00:01:45

the night to have power and decree and virtue and light which is better than 1000 months. This is a reflection we don't have any nurse any revealed text about this but it's based on personal reasoning. That the best night of the week is David Alomar, the night of tomorrow. And the best nights of the year I'll be the first authority the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan. Tonight is the 23rd night.

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

I believe for most of us here

00:01:50--> 00:01:55

the 23rd night for some it might be the 22nd Allahu Allah, I believe they were to start dates

00:01:57--> 00:02:38

to Ramadan. Here, those who are visitors students from from other countries you might not be aware of this hamdulillah any where you come from, there's an era there's a blessing correct, you don't have this confusion SubhanAllah. But in any case, in any case, based on where I started Ramadan and based in sha Allah upon the timetable that the Melbourne Medina is upon, and from my discussions with some of you that you are following, then today's the 23rd night of Ramadan, and tonight is the night of tomorrow. So in case you're feeling a bit fatigued from the 21st night and the 22nd night, this is not the night to

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

to take your your foot off the pedal.

00:02:44--> 00:02:48

This is the night to carry on pushing the pedal to the metal, as they say.

00:02:49--> 00:03:01

We have no fly assist us. I mean, welcome to another episode in our Ramadan series, reflections also the use of reuse of in the 21st century.

00:03:03--> 00:03:40

As we ponder over devices and the use of and extract lessons that can aid us in the timespan that we are living in and yesterday we stopped at the point of the King asking use of it. He said I have to come out of the prison, the king telling the messenger to tell Yousuf to make himself present in the palace of the king and use of Alayhis Salam he doesn't do so Subhan Allah, He doesn't do so immediately. He doesn't do so immediately. But rather, he sends the messenger back. And he asks the messenger to ask the king to find out about

00:03:41--> 00:04:13

a happening that happened many, many years ago with the women of the city, especially those who who cut their hands, obviously referring to the incident when he was a slave in the minister's home. And he was put through this trial with them. And they threw him away into prison without the key and without any trial. And his reputation obviously is at risk. Right because he's a nobody. Remember, he was a slave. On top of being a slave. He was a foreigner. On top of being a foreigner. He

00:04:14--> 00:04:23

didn't have a family. He didn't have he didn't have parents, and so on and so forth. We mentioned the list the list of weaknesses that use of Alehissalaam lived through.

00:04:25--> 00:05:00

So it's plausible, highly plausible, that his situation is one of a person whose honor might have been derailed might have been disturbed. And we mentioned earlier that from the lessons in Surah Yusuf is that a person's honor should be protected. And if your honor is at stake, you should speak up. We've said this time and time again right the voice of use of Alayhis Salam is rarely heard. But then Subhanallah you hear Yusuf alayhi salam is voice when she locked him in the room and then husband opened the door and found them in the

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

route together. And she laid blame on to him. Immediately he spoke he said here our destiny MFC she is the one who called me to her or try to entice me. Why did he speak up here? Because he's defending his honor. But when the caravan took him as a slave sold him as a slave, he didn't say anything.

00:05:20--> 00:05:39

Right, and this is from wisdom. This is from wisdom and we've said time and time again use of it Islam is complete. Subhan Allah, Allah blessed him with amazing beauty and character in mindset in his heart set in soul set. Even his body said mashallah, the article it was the complete package is the package that every sister would want to marry.

00:05:41--> 00:06:16

You could say that, what more do you want? Subhanallah you have everything that you don't have to worry about. Sometimes you marry a man who's who's handsome. The sister marries a man who's handsome but Subhanallah character is is lacking. Sometimes he has character The looks are lacking. Sometimes he has character and he has the look Subhanallah when you know what the hotset is lacking. Eman is lacking. Right? It happens. He's not praying on time. She has his he's just does the bare minimum. He's not reading the Quran. He goes to Juma i and he as soon as the Imam does the tech beat he doesn't go for the to listen to the hotbar

00:06:17--> 00:06:45

Right? Or sometimes Subhanallah he has these things but mindset is lacking maturity. His his mashallah he looks okay. His mashallah his deen is okay. He's kind, but Subhanallah it mindsets like he doesn't know how to juggle things. He's his mother is here. I'm here and he doesn't know how to balance between us. For example, there's always something life is difficult any and to the sisters don't blame the brothers. Because the brothers also have the same complaints.

00:06:47--> 00:06:47


00:06:49--> 00:06:55

Life is tough marriage is tough unless I always tell our brothers and sisters that look a marriage is jumping off a cliff

00:06:56--> 00:07:02

is jumping off a cliff. Marriage is jumping off a cliff. The question is how prepared are you when you jump?

00:07:03--> 00:07:25

Who is jumping without a parachute? And who is jumping with a parachute? This is the difference. Otherwise, everyone is jumping. Everyone is jumping off the cliff. But it's who is preparing themselves for who's putting a trampoline at the bottom maybe some balloon, some inflated device to capture them who has got a parachute? That's what you do you take the means but at the end of the day Subhanallah it's

00:07:27--> 00:07:58

it's unknown territory. It's unknown territory, especially in this day and age. And that's why don't be marrying the sister or the brother because of what he's doing on Instagram guys. This is not marriage credentials. And yeah, no I need to marry him or I need to marry her because you know her Instagram page Mashallah. She's showing people how to wear hijab she's firstly asking why are you watching how she's pressuring people to wear hijab, Allah IDIQ. And you're not supposed to be watching this. Firstly, secondly, if she's putting herself out there like that, then there has to be something that needs to be investigated.

00:08:02--> 00:08:10

Especially if she's showing you how to wear hijab with a Verage about teaching you how to wear hijab with full makeup. This is something else Subhanallah that we see.

00:08:12--> 00:08:14

And hijab, what is hijab?

00:08:15--> 00:08:28

What is hijab? And is hijab, a custom? Yeah, and how to tie a scarf. This is not hijab. Anyway, that's a discussion for another another day. And I don't mean to offend anybody, My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, like in Annaleigh, coonass, Johan I mean,

00:08:29--> 00:08:42

I'm just dispensing advice. Don't be from those that fit the description amulet will now see but offline or unhappy and you spend your life doing a lot of things thinking this is good. And then you met Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of piano and you found nothing with Allah.

00:08:45--> 00:08:55

Allah tells us what a bar lien Don't be we make dua every fatty I don't be from amongst those who went astray, who are those who went straight, those who loved Allah, but they worshiped Him without knowledge.

00:08:56--> 00:09:02

We spoke about those who think that they know but they don't know it's dangerous woman.

00:09:05--> 00:09:45

So use of either Islam was the complete package. All the sisters would want to marry him, let's go back. He had everything Subhanallah he had everything. However, he is in a situation now where he needs to stand up for himself because his reputation is at risk. And like we said yesterday, he doesn't want to come out of the prison, go work for the king. And then his reputation gets fixed. Because it looks like this. There's some foul play here. There's like the king is doing him a favor, that he was guilty, but because the king needed him for some matter. They've cleared his his his debt to society. They've cleared his crime towards mankind and so on and so forth, because of some

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

shared interest. No. And we said that this is from the completeness of use of his ability to have server computers of his character because not only could he be patient when he had to be patient, but he could choose to be patient as well. And we discussed the different categories of patients now. What so

00:10:00--> 00:10:25

also Subhanallah so phenomenal here is how use of it he addresses this person. He doesn't say, go back to the king and tell the king to question the minister's wife what she did, about what she did. And tell and two hot minute and you are asking the messenger to share a message with who? With the king of the land. And about who the minister's wife.

00:10:27--> 00:10:42

So what does he say? Look at the wisdom of use of he says, go back to the king first Illuma bad who miss what hilarity kata and Adi, go ask him about the women who cut their hands when they saw me. He didn't mention the minister's wife

00:10:45--> 00:11:11

Subhanallah This is wisdom. This is wisdom. Because if you're talking to the king about his minister and then the minister's wife, this is scandalous. This can be this can be highly problematic. And who are you? Does anyone know who or use of evil evil is how even Ibrahim does anyone know this? Nobody knows this. And he who is a slave? who are avid

00:11:14--> 00:11:15


00:11:16--> 00:11:26

this is this is HC MAYA This is my dear brother Yeah, okay means my dear brother, mashallah, when I'm with the Arabs, the Arabic comes out and the people online are likewise speaking Arabic.

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

Allah bless you all.

00:11:32--> 00:11:39

Here this is adaptation. You have to know liquid Lima calm in makan, as the Arab say, every place has its appropriate speech.

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

And wisdom is saying the right thing in the right way at the right time.

00:11:45--> 00:11:57

So he doesn't mention the minister's wife. He mentioned the women of the city. Because if the king addresses the women of the city, the women of the city idea that they know more people. Remember we said earlier she was seen to be

00:11:59--> 00:12:18

from the upper echelons of society. And they were you could say from the peasants, because she was affected by them saying things about our colonists were to infill Medina. Remember when we discussed the verse that the women in the city were talking about she felt offended about it? Why?

00:12:19--> 00:12:38

I mean, if your peers talk about you, it might rub you the wrong way. But it's not as bad as when people who are who you see beneath you. Right talk about you call your character into question. That's why she called them into the palace and said, Look, you want to see the this quote unquote, fetter, the slave boy, who is who's drowning me, you come see him for yourself.

00:12:39--> 00:12:58

So according to use of wisdom, if the king addresses these people, they will talk about the incident in the palace. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has revelation and the eloquence of the Quran is so clear. And as we say, Allah always takes us to the main points because immediately

00:12:59--> 00:13:07

we see the king, addressing the women of the city, and Subhanallah all of a sudden, we see all the tomorrow tonight zeal and a hassle.

00:13:08--> 00:13:11

All of a sudden we hear the voice of the minister's wife,

00:13:12--> 00:13:14

even though use of didn't mention her

00:13:15--> 00:13:44

will come to it inshallah. So take this into consideration as a lesson today that sometimes you're at university, sometimes you are the head of an MSA, sometimes you at work, there's things that you need to choose your battles, you need to know what you should take on what you shouldn't take on looking at the bigger picture. There's a bigger picture that you're trying to achieve. Right? So you need to think about the bigger picture how can I achieve it? Sometimes I might take on this battle but I'll lose the wall. Have you heard that statement? Sometimes you lose the battle but window.

00:13:45--> 00:13:47

Sometimes to win the war you need to do some battles.

00:13:49--> 00:14:23

That's how life is and that needs wisdom. Now, again, I don't want to leave this open ended because who decides what is a battle to lose in a battle to win? In this day and age we should have Assura and not just this day and age it's part and parcel of Islam or amerihome Shura Bay now this was the way of the Sahaba of the Allahu Allah Muhammad Allah praised the first generation because of the shura, they were people of Shura they sat and the dish would probably Allah, one would face a situation and he would gather them will hide your rune and the Ansara imagine he will not allow them to move out of Medina, the movement out of Medina, Abdullah bin Massoud and all different movements

00:14:23--> 00:14:53

that we saw after it happened after the death of Oba Tabata, the Allahu Akbar would keep them as close as possible, and he will do sure with them. So we must do sure we should have Assura we should have a committee of like minded people who have knowledge and are responsible with their knowledge, who we trust in terms of division and the bigger picture what we're trying to achieve, and we discuss with them but this is the situation should we do this? Shouldn't we do that? Should we speak up here? Should we remain silent here? What are the harms of remaining silent? What are the benefits of speaking up? What are the harms of speaking up? Okay, if we're going to speak up, how should we

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

speak up? Should I say this? Shouldn't I say this? This should happen as a collective as a whole because as a shooter you mitigate

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

each other's relativity. What do I mean by that? What is relativity? All our ideas are relative?

00:15:07--> 00:15:11

Correct? I'll give you a simple example. Life has a lot of relative realities.

00:15:12--> 00:15:17

100 Australian dollars, is it a lot of money or is not a lot of money?

00:15:19--> 00:15:24

He says no, but if I call your son What will he say? We should ask him.

00:15:26--> 00:15:30

He'll say yes 100 Australian dollars, masha Allah, I'm going to Malaysia for holiday.

00:15:32--> 00:15:32

So he thinks.

00:15:36--> 00:15:38

I know, I know. He told me he told me.

00:15:42--> 00:16:00

So you see, it's relative, isn't it the value of $100 is relative between a human being and another human being. The same thing must the hand of seven. What is beneficial and what is harmful is relative from the perspective of one human being this is good from the perspective of another human being is not good. When the Archbishop's of

00:16:02--> 00:16:24

Medina and mocha does have beta luctus when they wanted to hand over Beta lock this to the Muslims they said we will give the key but to everybody will have probably Allah why, when this message got to Medina, Omar did Shura with the sahab should I go or shouldn't I go. And to my knowledge of the man was of the opinion that Omar shouldn't go look, the Allahu Anhu and remain, but the idea of the Allah who was of the opinion that he should go,

00:16:25--> 00:17:00

you see, so it's relative, isn't it, somebody says don't go, there's more harm. If you do, someone else says no, you should go, there's more harm if you don't. So you did as a sure. And different voices, different people give input through that you you mitigate each other's relativity, this is the benefit of Sure. Even in your home idea, brother and sister, it's time how you parent your child, you should be assured between mother and father. And then ultimately, if you have parents who are upon a you know, meaning upon their understanding, of course, you bring them in, if you have brothers and sisters, you bring them in the certain things you need to bring your your brothers and

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

sisters in. And that's why it's important that to the best of our abilities. When we get married, and we have kids, we try and stay with our families with our extended family.

00:17:09--> 00:17:12

Because the satellite family kind of

00:17:13--> 00:17:21

itemization of families today has proven humps. Because given how life is today, a mother and a father

00:17:22--> 00:17:29

cannot wait. I'm not saying it's impossible, but it's very difficult for them to give everything that a child needs.

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

In the development, sometimes you need the voice of a grandfather, sometimes you need the voice of a grandmother. Sometimes you need the voice of an art, you need the voice of an uncle, it's needed.

00:17:40--> 00:18:16

Because if you're only talking to your kids, they get to an age where they say subhanallah my friend's parents are not telling them that my parents are but now if they hear it from the uncles and Auntie's, it becomes something that is considered normative, something normal, right? And then they willing to extend trust to it. Because that's how children are at the beginning of their lives, they extend trust to their parents without measure, then they get to the teens, and they might start maturing. Now the extension of trust, these limitations is high, but as they learn and as they mature, and as they become more confident, you see reducing slowly but surely, slowly, but when they

00:18:16--> 00:18:49

start earning money, now the kid or the child now can buy things that he wants, maybe catch a bus here, you know, he has independence by his shoes, there, she can buy her her clothing there. But more independence, we see this this extension of trust that a child normally was doing with his or her parents, when they were young, changing SubhanAllah. So that trust can be rebuilt when you have like minded people around the child who are sharing the same perspective as the parent. The point is, My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam

00:18:53--> 00:19:07

use of Alayhis Salam, he mentioned the right thing at the right time in the right way. And we should learn from this, perhaps Subhanallah one of the reasons why we fail to progress as per our potential

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

is because a lot of the times we don't do the right thing at the right timing the right way.

00:19:14--> 00:19:15

We don't

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

you know, in all aspects whenever something goes pear shaped in your life, analyze it, and think, obviously, hindsight is 2020. So it's done now, right? Hindsight, how could I have done it better? What could I have said hear better? Right? What could I have said to my father better? How could I have said this to my mother better? And the parents do the same? And you will see Subhanallah so many different ways. It's like when when when my football managers analyze a football match, especially after a loss. They look at how the other teams scored the goals. Now sometimes they wonder goals. Unbelievable. I mean this no amount of training could have stopped this or a

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

deflection happens to Qatar of Allah subhanho wa taala. Of course it's all together.

00:20:00--> 00:20:24

But sometimes you can see blatant mistakes blatant lines were opened blatant people didn't keep their positions didn't keep things tight at the back they didn't assume positions quick enough oh so on and so forth right? These things happen. These things happen and accordingly we learn from it we learn from our own mistakes you will see the manager will make notes from this and then he will have private meetings with who with individual players

00:20:25--> 00:20:31

and then he will have a team meeting isn't it and he will put it on the screen and nowadays with all the technology they cut the exact snippets and

00:20:32--> 00:20:59

pieces that are needed and they analyze it Subhanallah we need this in our life. I'm not saying we should plan so hard that we don't do any action some people Subhanallah they planning one week later brother what's happening we planning two weeks later we planning one month later we planning too much? Yeah okay. Planning until when any the old man needs leads the project. So everything within scale within within reason. Tama

00:21:00--> 00:21:06

another thing here of point of note that the scholars have seen mentioned and this is mentioned by Ibn actual Rahim Allah.

00:21:09--> 00:21:12

That it's interesting that Allah says Malik here.

00:21:14--> 00:21:38

Allah says Malik, he doesn't say Farah Subhan Allah. Allah says Malik referring to the leader of Egypt and doesn't say if you're around, when also the the pharaohs they were known as the leaders of this land. But Allah says Melek How come? He mentions an interesting point Subhanallah in his Atelier with tourists and amazing, contemporary

00:21:40--> 00:21:48

Tafseer book he mentions that Subhan Allah, this is from the evidence that this Quran was revealed by Allah.

00:21:49--> 00:22:09

Because Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about a historical piece of history Subhanallah that wasn't no wasn't known that the Jews who are on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who might listen to you the story of use of maybe even they won't know that there was a time where they weren't Pharaohs in this land, they were kings they were more look

00:22:11--> 00:22:20

Subhan Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by default couldn't have known. And we and now meaning more than historical studies, they have

00:22:21--> 00:22:31

apparently uncovered certain historical texts that show an era of leaders in Egypt known as the Moog

00:22:32--> 00:23:08

Malik, Malik, Malik, plural of machismo look, kings to the kingdom, right before they became pharaohs, we know Musa alayhis salam came after use of Allah he said, so this is a point to take note of Subhanallah that in this Subhanallah subtle delivery of the story of meaning in this delivery of the verses of Surah Yusuf Allah has in a subtle way proves Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be the Nabil because we could Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam known this from How could he have known that the person who spoke to us it was not a pharaoh, but Malik, he was not a pharaoh but a king from the era of the kings, not the era of the pharaohs, how could they have

00:23:08--> 00:23:17

possibly known this Subhanallah so this is something to mention here as well as a point of of benefit to prove Subhanallah that this Quran indeed, who will

00:23:18--> 00:23:31

who will help Musa Deacon Lima Albania de as Allah tells us in Dhokla is the truth that gives credence to that which they already have. The people of the Scripture, they have what they have the Quran

00:23:32--> 00:24:10

gives credence to that which wasn't changed. And that was which was authentic in the books. Now. Here Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that this is what happened. The messenger went to the king he told the king the king says marhaba couldn't either what to use for useful fantasy? The king says, Tell me about that incident. But Subhanallah Tell me about that incident when you all tried to seduce the use of against his wishes. How does the king know this? Did you say this? Did you say they tried to seduce me against my desires and he says My bedroom is sweaty, let your attorney do

00:24:12--> 00:24:43

this from the eloquence of the Quran. Use of only said as the king to ask the women about their situation when they cut their hands what happened when they had their hands. And immediately the king here is talking about his this specific incident. He's not talking about cutting of the hands incident, he is talking about the incidence of us trying to seduce use of against his wishes. And this is from the eloquence of the Quranic stories and elegance of the Quran that Allah leaves us to fill the gaps because Allah gave created for us our brain and the Quran is revealed.

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

And this brain is the brain that interacts with the Quran Subhanallah that the brain has the ability to appreciate the eloquence of the Quran through this that clearly you can imagine that the king would have done this in a more specific way first, address maybe one or two people got an idea

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

Subhan Allah this happened, and then address the more

00:25:03--> 00:25:29

that a proper investigation took place. When an investigation happens, how does it happen? Is there just like a mass questioning, bring everybody together and just ask people to put up their hand? Or do you investigate until you get the names of individuals. And then you speak to those individuals and you get a confession. And then from the confession, you get the list of names of the people who are present. And then once you get those names, you gather them up, and then you ask them the question. I mean, how does it work?

00:25:31--> 00:25:32

And are you guys with me? Or

00:25:35--> 00:25:38

maybe I'm saying something wrong, do tell me because everyone is

00:25:39--> 00:25:49

either huge looking at me, tells me you're computing what I'm saying or by you. So Subhanallah this is again from the Quranic eloquence.

00:25:50--> 00:26:04

As soon as the king asked him this question, Paulina, hashtag Allah, Allah, he means Subhan Allah Subhanallah the best way to cure the best way to solve the best way to solve

00:26:05--> 00:26:12

the dilemma of one's honor is to have the people who discredited your unaccredited

00:26:13--> 00:26:22

you imagine the person who was the means of you being the criminal? Is the means of your innocence shining bright,

00:26:23--> 00:26:25

I mean, is this like Vani or Katrin

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

mean when he means is this

00:26:29--> 00:26:32

mean? What it means is certain money

00:26:33--> 00:26:59

means or refers to a reality that is less than the level of certainty. Now, somebody is the means of you go into prison, and you innocent, and that same person confesses, says I was guilty, he was innocent, he paid the price for a crime that he didn't commit. Isn't this from the most ultimate forms of establishing your innocence? What do you guys think?

00:27:01--> 00:27:08

All of the women, they raise their voice Subhanallah to establish the innocence of use of Allah, He said

00:27:12--> 00:27:12

to Han Allah.

00:27:14--> 00:27:18

And then we had the voice of the minister's wife, Carla, tomorrow, Abdullah Aziz, I'll earn a hustle, hustle

00:27:20--> 00:27:23

and hustle. Now, she says,

00:27:24--> 00:27:43

as if she's saying, I tried Subhanallah, I tried. She didn't say subhanallah, you get my point that this is part of the delivery. I tried to keep our honor intact, and protect that event from another scandal or from an open scandal. And the hack has come out.

00:27:45--> 00:28:28

Not just come out, but it's glaringly come out. The hack is so manifestly clear, it's clear then the brightness of the sun, or as clear as the brightness of the sun. This is what she's saying. And then she has nowhere to hide. She has nothing left to do. If she tries to do anything now it's only going to sink her deeper. So what did she say? And what to who enough? See we're in the hole. I mean, aside the team, you know, an hour or two I am the one who tried to continuously are our two who SubhanAllah. This has the meaning of the present continuous. I was the one who persistently tried to seduce him and he's telling the truth.

00:28:29--> 00:28:31

And he is telling the truth.

00:28:34--> 00:28:36

And she says in the who

00:28:37--> 00:28:42

let me know Saudi again. Where else do we get this idea here? About

00:28:43--> 00:28:49

a sidekick and use of either his cellar being truthful. Do you remember in the story

00:28:56--> 00:29:04

are you Hasidic now, when the when the messenger came back to the present and he said useful AU has said the use of our truthful one.

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

This was always truthful.

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

And we spoke yesterday about dreams being attached to character. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said those who are truthful in speech our truest in dreams

00:29:20--> 00:29:24

How many times do we lie? Yeah, my brothers and sisters in Islam today Subhan Allah

00:29:25--> 00:29:30

and then we say it's a slip of the tongue. And we belittle it. We belittle it

00:29:32--> 00:29:33

are who are in the Lucha Javi

00:29:34--> 00:29:36

but it's great with Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:29:37--> 00:29:40

And we say words and we we like we know we like

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

and then some people say no, you're allowed to lie between husband and wife. No, no who said that? Say no. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the lie between husband and wife is allowed not every lie. This is misunderstanding the Hadith. Some brothers do this alone with Stan and some sisters as well.

00:30:00--> 00:30:11

You're doing things you're not supposed to be doing and you lying to your husband. And he's lying to his wife about where he was about what he's doing, and so on and so forth about where she was and what she's doing.

00:30:14--> 00:30:24

Subhan Allah and eventually, when Allah Allah lifts to the sitter, when Allah lifts the covering, people are exposed, like he left the covering of the women of the city and the minister's wife.

00:30:26--> 00:30:39

This is not a permissible line. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about what we call a white lie. When you tell your wife, she's the most beautiful thing you've ever seen. And most likely, you've seen something beautiful, Allah knows best.

00:30:41--> 00:30:43

Allah doesn't write this against you.

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

doesn't write this against you.

00:30:50--> 00:31:00

I don't want to take this into the marriage discussion. But Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we have to watch our tongues this tongue Subhanallah this tongue

00:31:02--> 00:31:03

it's a piece of flesh, right?

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

It's very sophisticated.

00:31:07--> 00:31:17

Because of it, you can taste a lot of ingredients. Because of it. You can speak multiple languages, but Subhanallah this tongue also can get you flung into the depths of Johanna.

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

This piece of flesh that small can get you flung into the pits of hell. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about the people of Jana or does he say Well, who do you know by EEB mineral quarry.

00:31:32--> 00:31:50

The people of Ghana were guided when they lived the life of this world ilaqua EB mineral code to a goodly word of the mineral code is a goodly word is lying from the category of goodly words. No, or who do either fee women of color. Do not lie where Allah save us Do not lie.

00:31:51--> 00:31:54

And during these nights ask Allah to forgive you for lying.

00:31:56--> 00:31:57

In our business deals we lie

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

because of the pressure of getting the deal over the line, or making the sale, sometimes we oversell a product. Sometimes we make promises that we can't deliver.

00:32:10--> 00:32:17

We do that we let the moment get the better of us or we forget about Allah subhanahu itad

00:32:18--> 00:32:19

And then what happens

00:32:22--> 00:32:24

I was speaking to our

00:32:26--> 00:32:51

brothers and sisters in Brisbane and Sydney, about this month being the month of dua, because Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us about the about fasting in Ramadan in three verses in Surah Baqarah the second Jews in three verses in the second quarter of the second Jews, the fourth verse, Immediately after it is related to die. It so eloquently bear the need for India Corrib.

00:32:54--> 00:32:58

Would you Would that with a deadly that there and Allah says my slave asks you about me then I'm here.

00:32:59--> 00:33:09

I answered the call of the caller. When he or she supplicates Allah says He answers our door, but my brother and sister in Islam, your DUA has to reach Allah.

00:33:13--> 00:33:44

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told taught us about a person Subhan Allah, who makes dua, who is desperate. Look, this hadith is so precise because in another verse in the Quran, Allah says Allah ug will know thoroughly that there are who is the one who answers the call of the matar of the desperate one, when the desperate one calls out to Allah subhana wa Tada. It's Allah who answers right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us about a man who's in the desert who has lost his writing animal along with his provisions. And now he's lost. He can't see any help. He can't see any

00:33:45--> 00:34:25

safety. He can't see any city. He can't see any town. He can't see any water. Well, he doesn't know where he's going. He doesn't know right from left. He doesn't know north from south and he's in a desperate situation and he raises his hand and he calls her to Allah and he says you're up BRB. Oh my lord, oh my lord, but my shabu haram, haram or my vessel who haram his dress, was bought with haram clothing and what he eats sorry you have haram wealth, what he eats is bought with haram wealth, what he drinks is bought with haram wealth, Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his name suggests me that with Where is he going to get the answer to his door?

00:34:27--> 00:34:28

This door is not going to reach Allah.

00:34:29--> 00:34:35

And sometimes through our lies, we build a reputation for ourselves that gets us a job that we don't deserve.

00:34:38--> 00:34:52

We're going to talk about this when we get to the discussion between Yusuf and the king. So perhaps we will deal with that till then, if I don't remind me those who build for themselves false credentials.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to tell us that the minister's wife says delicately LM and dilemma

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

hula hula believe this is so that Leah Alam he may know lemahieu I did not a who

00:35:08--> 00:35:09

deceive him.

00:35:12--> 00:35:52

Any Korean right from being deceptive deflective. She's saying this is that so that he may know that I did not deceive him in his absence. And the scholars have to see to say that there's two turf seals here. I mean, there's two explanations of this verse depending on the pronoun. And who this pronoun who does it refer to? Is it husband or is it use of any salah? Is it a husband? Or is it Yusuf alayhi salam, ala Hua and these are two types either some say that she is saying this is all my husband can know that I did not deceive him or deflect him in his absence because nothing happened between us use of didn't do anything, as she is saying and our our one of Sefa style, some

00:35:52--> 00:35:58

he I tried to seduce him and he didn't. So this is how my husband can know that I didn't commit adultery with him.

00:35:59--> 00:36:09

The other times he says that no, what she is saying here is that this is So Yousuf can know that I didn't spoil his reputation behind his back when he was in the in the prison.

00:36:10--> 00:36:44

Allahu Alem. This seems like the strong letters here. And what proves it further is the fact that she says thereafter warmer O'Barry, NFC and this also plausibly, when we look at a Seattle Quran, when we look at the context of the Quran comes across as she's the one who's saying it again, I don't want to go into the details of the Tafseer because I want to make this into double sessions. I'm going to focus on the view that I feel is strongest and truest to the context and the evidence, okay. But there's also Tutsis in terms of who is saying, Well, Michael Burry, when FC is it used to saying, well melbury When FC, or is it, the minister's wife saying when FC? And what's more closer

00:36:44--> 00:36:52

to the context, and the evidence is that this is the speech of the minister's wife, but before before she says mama, Obi Wan FC, we'll get to that she says what and Allah Allah till cablecar in it.

00:36:54--> 00:36:54


00:36:56--> 00:37:06

That Allah subhanho wa Taala does not guide the plot of a deceptive one, a deceitful one, now deceitful, this is deceit, clear and to be deceitful.

00:37:08--> 00:37:10

So the question is, did they believe in Allah?

00:37:12--> 00:37:59

And the answer is no doubt they know about Allah, but they associated partners with Allah. And they didn't follow the laws of Allah, because we can see from the series of the actions, a pattern. She goes on to say, Well Matt Albury NFC like I said, we'll stick to this stuff here that I do not announce myself as innocent. I'm not trying to present myself as an innocent soul. Subhanallah It's all coming up now. It's all coming out. Subhan Allah all coming out she says in enough Salah Amara to be su indeed the neffs a marathon Bisou is inclined towards evil, a mighty inclination in lemma Rama Robbie except the soul that receives mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala SubhanAllah. Now, if we

00:37:59--> 00:38:08

look into the Quran, we see that Allah subhanho wa Taala describes three states of the neffs firstly, she says Neff see what is enough? What is enough?

00:38:09--> 00:38:13

What is enough to you know, what does the self entail?

00:38:14--> 00:38:16

Technically, no, a soul is the rule.

00:38:17--> 00:38:23

The soul is the rule. The heart is the cult. The alcohol is the brain, the intelligence of a person.

00:38:25--> 00:38:40

No, not the desires, the neffs what is the neffs the nafs is the description of the human being. When their soul is connected to the body whilst living in the life of this world meaning after they come out of the womb of the mother to their die.

00:38:41--> 00:38:42

They have enough's

00:38:43--> 00:39:20

when I've seen one as a word for Al hammer Fujimura where Toccoa right Allah talks about the one who shaped and created the neffs and Allah inspired it to know what's right, what's wrong, what's wrong. When do we know right from wrong when we live the life of this world? And that is when a person passed away. The Prophet SAW from his companions the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam closed his eyes because when he passed away, his eyes remained open. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said either so either rule he didn't say enough to answer your question. You said enough is the roof. No, he said it's the roof when the soul is lifted. Tabby are who never the eyesight follows

00:39:20--> 00:39:30

it. So sometimes the eyesight follows it and then the electricity leaves you because the knifes sorry the roof is the electricity of the body. Once the electricity leaves you the eyes couldn't close.

00:39:31--> 00:39:32

Anyway, that's a different matter.

00:39:34--> 00:39:59

But we don't stitch hat okay, we're doing stitch head. So she's saying knifes here what is she referring to? The human being in the life of this world when they have a soul connected to the body? And when we look into the Quran, we see that this soul connected to the body in the life of this world exists in three states. Some say there's, there's three types of knifes. This is not precise. That obviously is one but the next goes through three states. The first state is a neffs this

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

went here,

00:40:02--> 00:40:03

America to be sue

00:40:04--> 00:40:09

the knifes that is inclined towards evil, a great intallation except the neffs that Allah has showered his mercy upon

00:40:11--> 00:40:26

that you will never by default once desires things and it's a twofer shape on the what Allah tells you don't do that knifes has a desire for it and what Allah says do the neffs has an averseness to it, especially when you get to the ages of tech leaf.

00:40:27--> 00:40:39

And the desires take over, meaning they become prominent in the person's life. Age of the tech leaf means when you get to your teen years and depends on dropped and now the recording everything you do mean you become mature.

00:40:40--> 00:41:03

So this is the first state of the knifes in lebara Hammarby. Allah Shah was his mercy on when he wills the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was preserved Abu Bakr also was known pre Islam to be as close to his fitrah or the Allah Juan Illa marinara and we have some people Subhan Allah that they have this inclination, but they have a greater control over that Indonesia. This is from the Rama of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:41:04--> 00:41:25

and that's why I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for His mercy when Abu Bakr asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for a dua for him to recite. And predominantly in his salah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, say Allahumma in the volume to enough civil men Kathira Wella young guru by Allah and fulfill the Mahavira Turmeric water honey.

00:41:26--> 00:41:27

ask Allah for His mercy

00:41:29--> 00:41:31

to tame your desires. We need Allah's mercy

00:41:32--> 00:41:34

to tame your desires. We need Allah's Mercy

00:41:36--> 00:42:12

Allahumma India Limited FCO Allah I have oppressed myself for great oppression while I have followed the law by Allah and no one forgive sins besides you for fairly forgive me but Farah Tamina indica forgiveness from you or how many have mercy upon me Allah in the country of voodoo Rahim Indeed you are the most forgiving the Most Merciful. Sal Allah subhanahu Attallah Ramita cellular automata ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for His mercy she sang in La Mara Hemara be even in her Coover and I just believe she's announcing that accept who the meaning of meaning the creator the Lord and they believed in the rule booboo, you have Allah subhanahu atta Allah and His Lordship, that except the

00:42:12--> 00:42:31

one who the mess meaning Allah's Mercy, the Lord's mercy reaches Subhanallah they are inclined towards sinning and inclined towards desires, a great inclination. So that's the first state. The second state is a praiseworthy state. This state is not a praiseworthy state. The second state Allah teaches us about it in Surah 2pm.

00:42:33--> 00:42:36

In surah, two Kiana Allah takes an oath by this knifes

00:42:38--> 00:43:06

law or Cosimo Bo multicam while our oxen will be enough Silla worm enough Salomaa This is the second state of the knifes and this state Allah loves it because this is the state of a enough's of a being that is fighting his or her desires for the sake of Allah. So Allah loves this. You have to fight it. It's a battle lawanna meaning the self reproaching knifes it's enough that it's going here but you see reproach it you say no, no, no haram, I'm not doing this.

00:43:07--> 00:43:09

It wants to look up but you look down.

00:43:10--> 00:43:35

It wants to watch something it shouldn't be watching. It switches it off. It's a it's a battle. Allah loves this better. Allah loves it to the extent that he takes an oath by it. Allah only takes an oath by that which is noble. Allah loves to see his slave fight for Allah. This is a jihad that you had of the nurses that you had. You have a jihad when you face the enemy, the external enemy and you have the jihad of the internal enemy. You have to have jihad with yourself.

00:43:36--> 00:43:41

You have to fight it. Allah loves that Jihad you are in Jihad fighting yourself for the sake of Allah, Allah loves it.

00:43:42--> 00:43:56

And then a slave fights through this period until the neffs gets to the ultimate best most relaxed, most serene state. And that is known as a neffs ultimate Yeah, yeah to have enough soon what's my in

00:43:58--> 00:44:35

the knifes that is serene, and content, and pleased with Allah and Allah is pleased with it. It's upon huller with ease, and it's away from haram with ease. There's no better. It's no better off. Don't have to fight to stay away from that. And I don't have to fight to do that. The heart is with the Masjid. The heart is with the dour. The heart is with good deeds you just naturally inclined to it. It's motivates you. You're ready for it. You're on time every time. You don't need to be reminded this is enough studies content with the guidance that Allah revealed upon His messenger. And when this knifes dies Allah calls out to this knifes honors this nurse by calling out twice a

00:44:35--> 00:44:39

year to understand my inner Oh content serene nefs

00:44:40--> 00:44:59

era je la Arabic returned to your Lord, who you lived your life for. You fought a battle for and then you lived upon his dues and stayed away from his don'ts for his sake, but all via tomorrow via Robbia whilst you are pleased Maria and Allah is pleased with you. May Allah make us

00:45:00--> 00:45:38

From amongst those who received this call when our time to pass away comes. I mean, there are but I mean, she says in our beautiful Rahim indeed my Lord is a full Rahim Subhan Allah. And this is a good place to end today, especially since it might be a little cuddle that My dear brother and sustain Islam as I speak, I'm thinking of my own mistakes, my own sins. As you listen to me I'm sure in your mind you are thinking of things. But as you think of this Subhanallah look at this disbeliever and what she's saying in Nairobi ruffle Rahim indeed. My Lord is the forgiving the Merciful. And clearly she knew this, because when the first candle took place in a husband quarter,

00:45:38--> 00:45:46

what did the husband say to her? What did it what it doesn't say to us? I didn't have that. And what did he say to our staff? We really did a big, seek forgiveness for yourself.

00:45:47--> 00:45:51

So she's acknowledging that my Lord forgives.

00:45:52--> 00:46:38

And my Lord is merciful. And even the Christians, even the Jews, whoever believes in God, if you speak to them about God, how did they describe God as forgiving and as merciful Nationale Hola. Europeana not so at a psychedelic we have a greater right to our Lord, we have a greater right to his mercy, we have a greater right to the statement in the rugby of all regime, we have a greater right to the statement, we have a greater right to this engagement. So use this night to turn to Allah subhana wa. CRP and up to them benefactor. Oh my Lord, I have sinned forgive me. Oh my Lord, I have sinned forgive me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us about a slave who sins.

00:46:39--> 00:46:46

And the slave says do not be authentic to them but fulfill the Oh my Lord, I have sinned forgive me. Allah subhanahu. Allah tells the angels

00:46:48--> 00:46:49

bear witness I have forgiven him.

00:46:50--> 00:46:52

Why? Because Allah is Allah Halfhill.

00:46:53--> 00:46:57

The one who forgives and then the slave sins again

00:46:58--> 00:47:04

and doesn't lose hope in the Mercy of Allah. He doesn't plan it. She doesn't plan it, but Subhanallah it got the better of them.

00:47:06--> 00:47:27

Or maybe they planned it and they were not aware of Allah. They were gehele of Allah. They were ignorant of Allah and now they have a understanding of Allah and they regret what they did in their past. So you turn to Allah again. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says this person tends to Allah and says, era be Oh my Lord as it up to them when I have sinned for finally forgive me.

00:47:28--> 00:47:52

Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna tells the angels to bear witness that the slave is forgiven. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And the Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Allah is not only a half, you're the one who forgives, but he's also far the one who perpetually forgives the one who forgives you after forgiving you, the one who forgives you after forgiving you afar, the one who perpetually forgives Subhanallah

00:47:54--> 00:48:11

but then the slave sins again, Allahu Akbar. Again, after Allah forgiving him or her twice this, they send again, and they tend to Allah crbn up to them but for verily Oh my Lord, I have sent forgive me. What does Allah subhanho wa Taala do now?

00:48:13--> 00:48:22

I was speaking about this in the names of Allah series that we're running every Sunday for the sisters and I was asking them what would happen in this day and age? Somebody wrongs us once what do we do?

00:48:24--> 00:48:25

The wrong us twice. What do we do?

00:48:26--> 00:48:27

The wrong us three times.

00:48:29--> 00:48:30

Three strikes and you

00:48:32--> 00:48:43

you go on nowadays, not even three strikes one strike, one snip, and they say you can call us old trust is broken. My brother old trust is broken. We've been building trust for the last 10 years. But you did this. That's the end of it.

00:48:45--> 00:48:45


00:48:47--> 00:48:54

WhatsApp block, Twitter block, Facebook block, every platform block. If you in the same group I'm leaving the group

00:48:56--> 00:48:58

Lavon was standing Allah give us maturity

00:49:02--> 00:49:07

everyone's laughing because you have had these experiences. I hope it's not us leaving the groups and blocking people.

00:49:10--> 00:49:14

It's a sign of weakness in maturity when you block people for a difference of opinion.

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


00:49:20--> 00:49:23

Allah subhanahu Attallah is not just another author.

00:49:24--> 00:49:30

And he's not just a little far he's also Allah fool upon the scale Alpha o Ilaha illa Allah.

00:49:31--> 00:49:34

Words upon the scale Pharaoh will denote an occupation.

00:49:35--> 00:49:43

As if Allah is teaching us that He is the One Who forgives and perpetually forgives. And it is, it is his occupation to forgive.

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

So it's the slaves right to keep walking through the door of Allah for because that's the office of philosophy which is occupation to forgive. So no matter how many times you sin, you go and ask Allah for forgiveness, Allah subhanahu atta NSH these angels that bear witness that the slave of mine

00:50:00--> 00:50:43

He knows or she knows that they have a Lord who is capable over them. He can take them to task he can punish them. But also he is the most forgiving the Most Merciful. bear witness that whatever my slave does from today they forgive him. Lucha is easy for Allah, sir. Easy for Allah to forgive you until the day of pay ama for whatever reason you will do thereafter. Obviously you don't know that Allah has done so you keep trying. But it's easy for Allah to forgive you, my dear brother and sustained Islam. Allah subhanho wa Taala is perfect from ever and he is perfect forever. He doesn't need you to be a good Muslim for His Majesty to be greater. And you being a bad Muslim does not

00:50:43--> 00:50:44
