Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen, Verbena Wahby Hina stirring on Sunday one who seldom either heard him in the V in the Vienna Muhammad wa ala Alihi, wa Sahbihi, Adjumani and Mobarak will begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala and request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to my dearest Brothers and Sisters in Islam Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh we all of us peace and blessings, many safety and His mercy be upon you all and be upon us all in last couple of 100 with our IRA, to accept from us, our worship, our fasts, our standing during these blessed nights, and all our acts of worship during these blessed

00:00:46--> 00:01:18

days and ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to bless us with good health, and to bless us with growth as we progress through the month of Ramadan, that our progress constantly grows, and we don't retrogress insha Allah in any capacity as always, it's an absolute honor to be with the community in Melbourne. Some people say subhanallah that I should move to Australia because I frequently traveled here and

00:01:19--> 00:01:55

this what is lucrative about never ending flights in economy class, all the way to, you know, to faraway locations. But Subhanallah I guess over the years Australia has been should I say a strong spot but from the sense of a weak spot personally because every time I do travel here the communities do make a point of highlighting need that the community is here in need of these development programs that we run

00:01:57--> 00:02:17

that have been run during my various travels this year. hamdulillah it's courtesy of Melbourne Medina and national soccer Foundation Australia. In previous years, the previous Melbourne locations Melbourne Medina locations hosted the Ramadan series that are run in martial lights.

00:02:18--> 00:02:45

I guess I say strong because the communities here are receptive hamdulillah to information and guidance and many who might consider my students have gone on to do some amazing things for the communities here in the forms of madrasahs in the forms of projects, masha Allah Devaraj kala so you always feel that even though it's a long travel, there's value there's return on equity,

00:02:46--> 00:03:10

from the land inshallah this is the case with other members of the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in other lands. But the point is that Subhanallah the need here is more pronounced than perhaps the need in places in Africa, places in Europe, and I asked because of Hanoi, Tara to give you all the vets to give you all steadfastness. I always make a point of mentioning this when I when I travel down under

00:03:11--> 00:03:21

and that is that Subhanallah when I need the amount of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Australia beat in Perth beat in Melbourne in Sydney and Brisbane.

00:03:22--> 00:04:06

I always feel overwhelmed because I witnessed firsthand the dream of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in manifestation, right because we know that the prophets of Allah Allah He was salams dream was for Islam to spread through the four corners of the world. If we look at the flat map, and the current world listings, we know that Australia is at a corner and Subhanallah here I come and I see people holding up La ilaha illallah the flag of la ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasool Allah holding up the signpost of Toccoa you all hear coming in your numbers despite the nuance circumstances especially after COVID and people being far away from the city and Australia having

00:04:06--> 00:04:48

its unique setup in that you have the city and suburbs and people are pretty much disconnected pretty much far away from each other you will making your sounds present in the different masajid that I visit in Australia hula It's heartwarming, you, you feel that Subhanallah the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had this dream and he didn't have enough life to see his dream become a reality. But Subhanallah we are blessed to see each other in different parts of the world to to La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah a result of his that 100 sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I was here is this Ramadan is like our series, every Ramadan. It has an objective and that objective is

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

obviously development. It's one of transformation. It's one of growing from knowing. It's not enough to just know things. It's not enough enough to just

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

feel like we are

00:05:03--> 00:05:44

moving, but we're not progressing. And there's always a difference between movement and progress. Right. And if you've read previous writings of mine before I've, I've written on this that a rocking horse moves, but it doesn't progress and Ramadan brings about that much needed reflection. it calibrates our lives to an extent, it slows us down. And it brings us together which makes these reminders all the more lucrative. These are reminders what I will share with you in sha Allah, you will know but it will make it all the more lucrative in previous Ramadan series that we've held in Australia. And that I've held in different parts of the world it was connected to the Sierra, I ran

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

a four season for Ramadan

00:05:47--> 00:06:38

series which was born Subhan Allah in the the, the second, the second Melbourne Medina blast from the past Syrah in the 21st century. We discussed the sea era, but in a manner that mattered in the 21st century, extracting from this era points that were pertinent to you and I living within Muslim minorities today. And that series is apart from the lights online, you can capture it, you can see the series we did from the first Medina and then I ran Season Two and Season Three in Asia and season four, then run online because it was during COVID. And everyone was online. So that was a unique, it was a global kind of season. We had people from all over the world as opposed to people

00:06:38--> 00:07:14

from a from a particular place in space, and it had its benefits as well. Although although I always feel that when I'm able to speak to my brothers and sisters in Islam, Buber Sheraton vamos shafa Hatton as, as they say directly. Once we are in each other's presence, there's always great a tongue via value, I can see that you listening online, we don't know who's you know how people are listening, we can see people there, but who knows who's lying on the bed, who's wearing a vest instead of a proper shirt, who is maintaining the etiquettes of seeking knowledge. We hear stories as the teacher I hear stories from my students that oh, you know, I was listening to the lesson and

00:07:14--> 00:07:55

I was like, listen, somebody might have been having his or her pizza on the site, or you know, expecting the pizza to be delivered. So they had one ear on the on the on the on the lesson and the other ear on the doorbell. And Allah didn't please do hearts in the body of a person. So online has its benefits, but it also has its humps, and on site. Whilst it doesn't allow for the rich, I always feel that Subhanallah the impact is greater. For this Ramadan, my dearest Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we've chosen Surah Yusuf as our base. Previously, we chose the Sierra as our base we've chosen for the use of as our base. And when we ran the Sierra it was it was a kind of fit of CF. It

00:07:55--> 00:08:07

was a fixture of Sierra in that we wouldn't storytelling the entire Sierra. But we were taking snippets from the syrup and extracting lessons pondering over them extracting lessons that are personal, and I hope to bring that field

00:08:08--> 00:08:58

here today as well. And in our series is Ramadan, that it won't be a Tafseer of Surah Yusuf if you want that I taught two Zero series in Melbourne, over two full days at one of your universities here, hosted by Alcocer Institute. And you can find the entire tafsir online at the Alcocer online platform. I guess today given that it's our our first together, let's tap into some of the macro realities of Surah Yusuf and I say it's a macro because it pertains to every surah in the Quran. And when we talk about a surah from the surah of the Quran, and at a macro level, then no doubt the first point of discussion will be the Maquis versus Medellin discussion. Because when we look into

00:08:58--> 00:09:13

the Quran, and some of the Messiah has, whenever they listen to the surah name, next to the surah there will be this citation MK key and there will be another citation sometimes Madani right? And when you have as soon as the question, Why

00:09:15--> 00:09:55

are these citations placed and I no doubt is placed as a means of preserving the knowledge of the Quran. But this is the key point that this idea of McKee and Madani is from the knowledge of the Quran. And the idea behind it My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam is that Allah subhanho wa Taala when he revealed with the Quran, obviously it was revealed over 23 and a bit years, right, it was not revealed in one chunk to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam it was revealed as one chunk as even at best and of the Allahu Anhu states from the Preserved Tablet lo Hellmuth to the first heaven to the house of honor. In the first half I haven't known as

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

the house of innovative is the house of honor

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

This happened in one chunk, as per the directive of even our personnel.

00:10:04--> 00:10:45

And given the nature of this knowledge, the scholars have deduced that he could only have said this If you took it from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and some people asked this question, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah say Shalom Ramadan and levy on Zilla fi hero Quran and Allah Subhana Allah Allah says in an Zelner, who he laid it in, that we revealed the Quran on a night of power, and we revealed the Quran in Ramadan, but the Quran came down over 23 and a bit years 23 and a half years almost. So how do we marry between this idea? And the fact that Allah says it was revealed in one month or in this month and in another Surah on this night? And the answer to this question comes

00:10:45--> 00:11:12

from the guidance of Abdullah him and our best that will be Allah Muhammad, is that when Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the Quran as being revealed on the Night of Decree and power and virtually the other night that is better than 1000 months. May Allah grant us this night I mean, and no doubt this night is a night from the nights of Ramadan, which connects Shaham Ramadan and lady who's de la vie Hello Quran to in Anza. Now filelocator is referring to this revelation from the pre Preserved Tablet to the house of honor

00:11:13--> 00:11:18

in the first heaven, however, also there is

00:11:19--> 00:12:04

inclusiveness for us to understand that also, the first revelation came to Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wasallam during the chosen night, and during the chosen month. Now, the Quran was revealed over 23 years, which means it was revealed over two periods of the Prophetic Mission. And we know that the Prophetic Mission, the Tao of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is divided into two parts. There's the Moroccan phase, which was his Dawa before Hegira to Medina. And then there's the Medina and phase which was his Dawa after he migrated to Medina and this is what Mackay had made any refer to. My key refers to all verses revealed, and also as revealed before migration to Medina and

00:12:04--> 00:12:21

Madani refers to all Revelation After migration to Medina, even if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in Mecca, even if he was on Arafa and you are commanded to let convenor come to the community. What are the Tula common Islam Medina, this verse was revealed, when,

00:12:23--> 00:12:24

during which portion

00:12:26--> 00:13:15

during the Hajj of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. As we know the hedge happens in the Macan region, but it was revealed after heater to Medina so because it was renewed after Hijra to Medina this verse is considered a Madani a Medina verse Now, is this just the only idea about mucky versus muddy? No, there's more to it obviously, because every idea, especially when it when it's an idea from the knowledge of the Sharia, it stems from substantial beginnings. And the scholars discussed this to better understand the wisdoms of the Quran, the lessons of the Quran, the directives of the Quran, because even in how Allah reveals to us His instructions, and when he reveals to us His

00:13:15--> 00:13:18

instructions, there are lessons.

00:13:19--> 00:13:22

So when this court is looking into the whole murky, Madani

00:13:24--> 00:14:05

knowledge genre of Roman Quran of the sciences of the Quran, they did use an understanding that when we look at all revelation before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrated from Mecca to Medina pay attention here, don't worry about the cameras, because if I asked you questions that you don't know, when you sat here, then this is like online education. And the people are not focusing. Allah bless you all, the instant age, it's how it is, isn't it? Dopamine is the distractions always take us away brother Maria Maria de and you don't don't play with the camera, because you will take the attention of my audience. When the scan is look at the whole murky methylene eye yet and the

00:14:05--> 00:14:28

genre of it that they teach us important lessons and lessons that helped us today also in the 21st century, when they look at the verses revealed before the hitter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They note as a general rule, as a general rule, because there are some exceptions and sort of use of is from the exceptions. As a general rule. The verses are very short.

00:14:29--> 00:14:50

And they're very striking. They're very impactful. They're very direct, and they focus on a finite number of ideas. If you look at every surah in the Quran, that is marked as murky, you will see as a general rule,

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

these points that I shared with you. There are some exceptions like Surah, Yusuf Surah Yusuf as long as I add, the verses are not striking. They're not

00:15:00--> 00:15:22

So direct but there's a reason because her use of his stores. So use of is a story. But if you look at all the other Merkin surah in the Quran, as a general rule you find that diversity short when Nazir RT Hanukkah when National Party national law was served we had this other half or Buddha or Lady either serger or shrimps, Shamsi whoo ha ha Well also in the

00:15:24--> 00:15:25


00:15:26--> 00:15:28

right if you look at these makin

00:15:29--> 00:15:32

verses, you see that they short and they striking.

00:15:33--> 00:15:38

Okay? And you also see that they focus on a finite amount of messages

00:15:40--> 00:15:59

from them, number one, establishing Allah subhanho wa Taala as the only one with your version number two, establishing Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the messenger and the one sent by Allah number three, establishing belief in the hereafter. Subhanallah you find this in the

00:16:00--> 00:16:19

in the in the muck can Surahs investors number four good character Subhanallah good character Wakaba Rob Booker taboo Yeah, well Bill Wiley Dini Santa This is Emma confess that Allah has decreed and rules that you actually have no one but what Allah and that will be excellent to your parents. This was

00:16:20--> 00:16:42

excellent to your parents What's this got to do to heat is going to do a good man is a good man is this from to heat? We find this present in the muck conversas How many did we count number one believes in one Allah number two establishing Muhammad as the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam number three, establishing belief in the hereafter because of courage denied life after death.

00:16:43--> 00:17:04

And number four good character you find this present in the muck convinces you don't find riba interest being haram, from the muck investors, you don't find Ramadan being Ramadan from the makan versus Zeca beings occur from the medical vessels. You don't even find some of the major sins that we know of

00:17:06--> 00:17:28

made impermissible in the muck and verses of Panama. There's wisdom here. There's wisdom here. And you got to remember the people receiving the Quran or the Quran, and they had hearts and souls shackled in what? In idolatry and idol worship, they had to worship the idols. They had to follow the way of their forefathers it was running through their veins, Allah says about

00:17:29--> 00:18:10

who should be bofi Who will be him with origina because they had to worship the calf, but who Israel had to worship the calf, even though they saw Allah saying them from the ground, they saw the Spirit the see splits Subhanallah you see miracles, you seeing the sea split you know this carpet these idols are not doing this. You seem fear on being punished and drowned and his people but after they come out of the circumstance was What did they ask what is your Atlanta 11 cover the whole area ilaha illa after you saw all of this, you're looking to worship and idol was running through the events when Musa left them and went upon the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala for his

00:18:10--> 00:18:35

seclusion with Allah subhanho wa Taala he came back to find them what worshiping this Egypt to add to worship is origin. The hearts vessels were shackled, shackled in ship can polytheism and worship and idolatry and idol worship and following the way of the forefathers of the Quran came to strike this heart strike the soul. You see, if you have

00:18:37--> 00:19:15

a block of ice, and you want to create a sculpture from it, do you take a hammer and smash it? You take a chisel and you knock it, you knock it carefully. That way, you break away what you don't need, and you keep what you need. Subhanallah we see this in the Quranic instruction. It came at a time when people's hearts and souls were frozen on idol worship. Allah came with short penetrating eyes like a chisel not not not not not all the short verses. So it chiseled away what was needed and preserved what was needed the heart, the fitrah, the sole Subhanallah This is from the guidance of the court.

00:19:16--> 00:19:49

Also from the guidance of the Quran we see here when we separate between the Moroccan and the medina versus an olam yet that the Tao of the Quran focus on focuses on looking after the most important priorities before it moves on to the next set of priorities. And that's why the Sahaba they highlighted this from them Aisha Radi Allahu anha and others that if the first verses to come down with the alcohol, no one would have followed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam they would have said to you and your message, you can keep it

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

but a message that conformed to something hidden in them. They were already programmed to worship one Allah. And that message came it was a reminder

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

And subhanAllah evidence of this is time today we compare Islamic Propagation today to the propagation of the MBR anything was salat wa salam, how simple was the DAO of them the Alamo, salat wa salam. You don't hear all these fancy terms on topological and empirical and all these fancy terminologies and terminologies that fly over the ears and heads of those people. That's the salat wa salam they came and said Barbuda, Allah may Allah Camila Hinako worship one Allah there's no one was your worship besides him? All of them Calacatta Asana no Hanina call me for calling

00:20:39--> 00:20:41

Bula metacommunity Laughing

00:20:42--> 00:20:43

Are you

00:20:44--> 00:20:52

sure Eva god yeah call me are good hola Maga. Camila. He'll do like this, are either adding the Hongwu though I never did. I'm sure

00:20:53--> 00:21:35

the message was the same worship one Allah there is no one worthy of worship besides the most simple message. Why was it so simple? Because they were coming with a message that was natural to the human being already. Allah created us upon etcetera, etcetera to Allah ility Fatah, NASA Allah Ya Allah created us upon an instinctive nature and natural disposition to worship one Allah alone, it's within us. It's there. The program is there. The problem is the program got corrupted with a virus. But we need an antivirus to remove the virus so that the program can work. The software is there. It's there already. It's just been corrupted. The MBR eco Salam. They acted in the capacity of an

00:21:35--> 00:22:16

antivirus simple they didn't come to to program the software. They came to extract the virus that is affecting, polluting, misappropriating LIS calibrating the software that we have. So the Quran came with with the same message it came with this chisel and short penetrative messages establishing Allah as the hawk and Allah who can movie establishing Allah as the hub, establishing the messenger as the messenger because if Allah is the hub, then Allah is just an Allah is merciful. If Allah is just in Allah is merciful, He won't be mankind. So it makes sense that he sends a messenger, right, and this messenger comes with a book, what's the point of the messenger without a book because the

00:22:16--> 00:23:04

messenger is not a reference, he is a caller to the reference was Allah subhanho wa taala. And so that makes sense as well. So we see the Quran establishing these messages in a collective way, in a measured way, in a scheduled way, messages that conform to the fitrah that insight has that we have an in essence, doing what moving away what's not needed and protecting that which is most valuable and that which is needed, in a way, building this ummah, to unlock the first generations of Muslims, the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu reign. Those are women and men. And those men and women who did what they worked after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, in ensuring his vision became

00:23:04--> 00:23:43

a reality. We are Muslims today because of the Tao of the Sahaba of the Allahu Akbar, Germain. And don't forget, they will new Muslims, they will new Muslims. Sometimes this is beyond us. That's how our new Muslims, right besides those who are born upon Islam, the greatest Sahaba we know they took the shahada, they entered into Islam, they were new Muslims. And what we see today of almost 2 billion people across the world thing Allah Allah and Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah is from the Dawa of new Muslims, for they followed in the footsteps of the ultimate teacher of humbling Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so what about you and I were born Muslims that hamdulillah who have had

00:23:43--> 00:24:27

the message with us from the time we were born, when this the majority of us What responsibility lies on our shoulders towards the next generation and the generations to come? So the makin verses, they teach us how to be measured how to be scheduled when developing people how to focus on prior on the core priorities. There's no point in telling people ribeye is haram if they don't believe in Allah. And we see this in the in the advice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tomorrow. Even Jebel when when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent more to to Yemen, as the dairy as an RV as a Mufti Subhanallah He sent him to Yemen to be a judge to be a Mufti to be a coroner a

00:24:27--> 00:24:33

propagator and he said to me, I had called him tonight in a haze of love Muhammad Allah

00:24:34--> 00:24:37

and only when they accept it, then call them to Salah.

00:24:38--> 00:24:40

And when they accept the Salah, then call them to second

00:24:41--> 00:24:51

Subhanallah Where did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam get this guidance from from Allah subhanho wa Taala who even till the Quran that for 13 years. We don't see

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

halal and haram being a major feature of the Quran revelation but after Hegira to Medina what

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

What happens the verses become longer? The verses are less striking. The verses are about halal and haram do this. Don't do that. Yeah, you Alladhina amanu either Tamila celerity fallacy no would you? How come Why do you learn Marathi? It's a long verses and very instructive, right if you stand for the Salah, then observe the ablution and Allah is telling you the ablution how to perform the Will we see this in, in in Medina and verses right Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying

00:25:32--> 00:25:35

what the Roma documentary oh you will believe leave Riba?

00:25:37--> 00:26:24

Right, we got conscious of Allah. Allah whether omega t Amina Reba live river, we see Reba becoming a major sin in Medina 13 years after 13 plus years after the after the Prophetic Mission began after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called his people to Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is another benefit for us from this makan Madani discussion. So this is our lesson for today Surah Yusuf is at the macro level is a Surah from the surah of the Quran, and Surah Yusuf is a Merkin surah. And we've discussed the functions of McCain or the meaning of McCain, sorrows and Revelation versus Medina Sutras of Revelation. And we also discuss some functions, just some we didn't discuss

00:26:24--> 00:27:12

all some functions of imagekind revelation, as opposed to the medina Revelation, we discussed the focus of the Moroccan revelation, and then we have Surah Yusuf, before we tap into surah. Yusuf, what can we derive from what we've just discussed in terms of our lives today, as Muslims in the 21st century? Well, no doubt, this idea of focusing on the most important priorities before the next set of priorities. That's number one. Number two, also how to be appropriate in our data, our how we call people, the language we use, the style we use is very important. Right? From from the pious before us, they say head data, NASA Vemma. We may speak to people with knowledge and in a way that

00:27:12--> 00:27:31

matches the ability to comprehend otherwise, they will deny Allah subhanho wa Taala and his Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this is a benefit for us to take on. For those who are fathers here for those who are mothers here, supporting to raise your kids upon the guidance of the Quran, focus on the most important matters, number one, number two,

00:27:33--> 00:27:49

conduct yourself, your speech, your approach your hour, your interaction in a way that is suitable to the child in front of you. A child who is from age, one to seven is different to a child who is from age seven to 14, a child who is

00:27:50--> 00:28:29

from age 14 to 21, is different to a child who is from age seven to 14, you can't speak to your 21 year old how you speak to your 14 year old or your seven year old and vice versa. Right. So this is a matter for us to take into consideration that sometimes because of the life of the 21st century, we busy, we have a lot of work, we double shift, we single shift, sometimes the shift is too long than a normal shift that we might be used to elsewhere. Or if we had a different degree or a different qualification, some people working in a labor this way some people work in office environments, some people, we all have different things going on. And because we become busy, and

00:28:29--> 00:29:09

the stresses of life become compounded upon us, sometimes we go home and our children do a little bit of this, and a little bit of that and we snap at them that Subhanallah we give them the least patience, but we give everything else in life patience, and we don't think about how to speak to this child when he or she has this age attached to them and that child and they have this particular age category. So let us take these lessons with us. Obviously Charity begins at home. So we use home as the closest example. But everywhere in your life. Think about this guidance in terms of sort of use of very quickly. It is a console and it was revealed towards the end of the time of the Prophet

00:29:09--> 00:29:55

sallallahu alayhi wasallam in Mecca, but it was revealed to Pamela the most difficult of times, and it was revealed before Allah subhanho wa Taala gave the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the breathing space he needed and permitted him to migrate to Medina and set Medina as the Muslim capital, the Islamic capital. It was revealed Subhanallah after the Muslims were sanctioned in the share probably have violated the value of your body when they when sanctions little sanctions were placed upon them. For four years, no food, no drink, no trade, no medicines, and this agreement was hung up on the kava because the coloration in all the madness that we read when we learn about Jaya

00:29:55--> 00:30:00

Helia they had some systems Subhanallah and one of those systems

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

was if something was hung up on the cabinet and it had it was considered sacred, or it couldn't be broken. So people honored that contract. So Pamela and the Muslims went through a severe test, a severe test milk in the breast of mothers dried up Subhanallah because of the lack of nutrition, because of the punishment that was laid upon the Muslims, the siege that was sanctioned upon them, well because they said La Ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad Rasool Allah they followed a man who was from them, whose character was known to them whose lineage was was understood by them, they follow this man And subhanAllah the situation and circumstances changed upon them. So the Prophet sallallahu

00:30:42--> 00:31:24

alayhi wa sallam had to see this, you got to remember, he was a man, he was a human being, he had the emotion, he can see that baby's crying, he can see women worried he can see the patients of his men, he can see all of this, he's a human being, he feels it. And then Subhan Allah, when Allah subhanho wa Taala removes them from the difficulty in that following year, he loses two of his greatest supporters, he loses a robotic and he loses Khadija probably Allah one, two of his greatest supporters. So Subhanallah you know, we're talking about difficulty of the difficulty. And the next set of difficulty, you can argue is far greater in terms of intensity than the great intensity of

00:31:24--> 00:31:59

difficulty already experienced, because now you've lost your supporters. These people who would push back the onslaught of the Quran is because of the status in society, right? And then we know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes to thrive, and he thought he would get some solace there. And he would get a better response there. But Subhan Allah, he was stoned there and not just stoned, he was humiliated there some Allahu alayhi wa sallam they made the kids come and stone him along with the adults. This is a sign of humiliation when Adams they have certain actions that they do. I mean, you probably have understood in recent times that if a slipper is thrown at you, if an error

00:31:59--> 00:32:32

picks up a slip and throws at you, this is a great humiliation, right? This is a great show, you might think he's just the slipper. But in the culture of the Arabsat this you have been humiliated in a great, a great way. So when they brought their kids out to stone, the prophet sal Allahu Allah, He was telling them, this is a form of grave humiliation, so Han Allah, and in all this difficulty Don was going through this Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed Surah Yusuf and in one reason of Revelation, when you said that the Sahaba of the Allahu Akbar Majima and they they asked to the Prophet sallallahu Aileen was the local sister Elena, if you could

00:32:33--> 00:32:56

tell us some stories and Allah subhanho wa Taala and even Sladek acts and of course, he will reveal to you the best of stories. And this is at the beginning of Surah Yusuf. So this is the reality of Surah Yusuf and when it was revealed, and it's the reason of Revelation, and you can see Subhanallah that yes, it was the Moroccan period, but it's verses

00:32:57--> 00:33:26

are different to the normative realities of the rest of the converses that I I shared with you, but you can see here the eloquence of the Quran, you can see the jazz miraculous nature of the Quran that the Quran has the system, but it also has this flexibility that doesn't take away from its system and the flexibility that only adds to the value of the Quran. But he Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed these vessels in this manner that did not take away from the maca genre of what

00:33:27--> 00:33:37

the mud can verses and Revelation entail. But in the same breath brought about the necessary impact in the Quran is the book My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam. It's a book that we interact with

00:33:38--> 00:34:20

Xena Lika ukara on Zillow DKU stem or ELA he will focus on Zillow li que yo for the WebSocket but it was really a double it he oriented curl back as Allah subhana who reveals, right this Quran wasn't revealed so that you could just read it or so that you could just memorize it or so that you could just listen to it, but rather it was revealed so that you may ponder over its if you may interact with the vessels. This is the Sunnah of this ummah with the book and that is why the Quran is the only book that the Ummah at large was told to recite every other Revelation, the Ummah at large were not told to recite it was a book read by the scholars, the Torah was read by the scholars, the

00:34:20--> 00:35:00

injeel was read by the scholars, the Quran was revealed with the command that the masses recite it, even if you don't understand it, and Allah set a reward for the one who decides it for every letter, you get a has an F and it has an S equal to 10 rewards. This is what the Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because this is a book that we need to interact with. We need to ponder over And subhanAllah here comes the use of as a means of lifting the hurt the pain, the difficulty of the Sahaba on the Allahu Anhu he made at that time, that what they're going through Allah reveals to them that another prophet went through difficulty as well. And not just one but to him and his

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

Father, Obama, he Salam and Yusuf Ali Salam, and their test was not 10 years was not 20 years was not 30 years was not 40 years. It was northwards of four decades. At conservative estimates, you can say five decades from the use of was taken away from his home and the time when Allah subhanho wa taala. united them what a beautiful patience. Each party needed to have a who needed to have an use of needed to have to remain upon the Huck to repeat upon Tibet. And that is why we see. So the use of for sovereign journey, this message mentioned a beautiful patient. So Allah revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to the Sahaba Ravi Allahu Allah Germain that they read from this

00:35:43--> 00:35:59

and they take hope that Subhanallah no matter how tough life is, no matter how difficult things are, no matter what challenges in our context, the 21st century brings, no matter how many spheres are pointed, pointing towards us, and how many arrows are directed towards us.

00:36:00--> 00:36:09

We don't lose hope in the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala. And knowing that whatever Allah does, he only does good. And everyday we live, we just have a pixel.

00:36:10--> 00:36:49

And that pixel belongs to a bigger picture that we can't see it. But we'd be patient and we grab these pixels, and grab these pixels and grab these pixels. And we gather these pixels and the more pixels we gather, things become more clearer and clearer and clearer and clearer until we see one day the ultimate plan that Allah subhanho had to Allah had for us Subhanallah and then we will look back at our lives as they say Hindsight is 2020 you will look back with full perception and Say Subhan Allah, if I knew then what I knew now I would have never complained. If I knew then what I know now I would have asked Allah to to give me more of these Subhanallah tests and difficulties. We

00:36:49--> 00:37:17

don't ask Allah for that. But this is human nature. Hindsight is 2020 and Surah. Yusuf is about that insha Allah in the upcoming nights as we travel through so you serve as a base to extract lessons that matter to you and I in the 21st century, this pixel versus picture idea will become more clear. I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah to capital Allah Mindanao women consolidated head of Allah and Mo Salah was send them over to Canada, b&m Hamid quite early here are some big money.

00:37:19--> 00:37:20

If there's any questions, I'm happy to take them
