Smilla Rahmanir Rahim hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Urbina, starting on Sunday when the salamander caught him in the beginning the beginner Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira and lamb Dean Amma bad rubbish recently westerly Emery. Look that's a Melissa and EF Kahu Kohli, we begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa taala. And we request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanahu wa taala accept our good deeds mean
to my brothers and sisters in Islam salam ala hiya aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. May Allah as peacemakers mercy may His blessings be upon you all, and it's wonderful to be back with you all. After a quick journey out to Sydney. But hamdulillah though Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is doing well over there Subhan Allah, the Ramadan nights are special. And
as Brisbane was mashallah the Sydney community we're very hospitable. May Allah subhanaw taala accept from you and accept from them. And from the Muslims in Australia and around the world. I mean, you're a Brahmin in the markers of Imam Muhammad Omar Cosima, Muhammad or Liverpool Islamic center. We discussed
a summary of what we've been taking here in Melbourne. It's always difficult when you transition. I had to do a quick fire summary in Brisbane. And I had to do a super quick fire summary. In Sydney and hamdullah. We managed to take
a verse or two more after our our pause our comma or pitstop here in Melbourne. And if you recall, we stopped at the point whereby use of Alayhis Salam was tested further, and this time with his manhood, this time, with his desires and in a very formidable way with a very powerful lady, a lady who was his master, and use of Alayhis Salam Subhan. Allah was true to his fitrah he was true to the teachings of his father. And even though he spent decades away from the home of his father, in the most difficult of environments, environments that one would Subhanallah
seriously feel will take a person away from Allah subhanho wa Taala Yusuf Ali Salam comes out shining
with flying colors mashallah passing with flying colors, being true to his fitrah to the way of his father the way of his forefathers then we are adding more salatu salam, the way of Ibrahim alayhi salam and he remembers his father's teaching in the Rebecca Eileen will Hakeem that indeed your Lord is the omniscient is the All Knowing and he is the all wise, wherever you are, he will know where you are. And he is wise as to why you are there. It is all Allah's plan, and use of never forgets this. And thus, the first words that come out of his mouth when she calls him to her. He says hate he says my other laughter she says hey Tilak this fitna is oven ready for you use of, he says My
Allah, I seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala and then we discussed the verses thereafter. And Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna
tells us of how he Subhana protected use of Allah he Salah that it was his protection over Yusuf alayhi salam that helped us of Allah he salah is a lesson for us, my dearest Brothers and Sisters in Islam, that we should never ever rely on ourselves, for our safety for our success. Our reality is one of never ever forgetting that our quality level there is no power no matter except from Allah subhanho wa Taala always ask Allah for Salah Amma always ask Allah for safety. Don't feel that you you know super special and you seek these tests and you seek
environments that are harmful to your image and thinking that you will receive
some special attention or sorry some special exception. From Shay upon entry upon will not bring push to shove. When it comes to you and his endeavors over you never be that person. Always seek refuge in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us here that he protected Yusuf alayhi salam, and he chose Yusuf Alayhi Salam. And Allah says he's the one who turns away the trials and the tests from those whom He wills and he describes Yusuf alayhi salam as more or less as sincere, and in another Cara mock laughs as the chosen one. And like I said to our team in Sydney, our brothers and sisters there that we deduce from this, that if you sincere then Allah
will choose you. And if Allah chooses you then the vast Gallica industry if I'm who sue all fascia applies to you, and Allah Subhan
Attalla will shift away from you that which will take you away from him. Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that use of Allah he Salam did something else, not only did he present his case verbally, which in which so firstly, he takes refuge in Allah. And secondly, he
releases a moral argument for desistance. That's what he does. And this is
a step plan for us. That whenever we faced with a trial, we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa taala. Next, if the trial involves somebody who's trying to push us into difficulty, then we also Zirkel O'Hara, we also
present to them a
meaning an argument of sense and hear us very he Salam is having a moral argument with her. Right? We said the suit of seals, when he says in Surah, br number three, we said there's two types. Here's one tafsir states that are up here means
her husband, and in this case, the first means that he is saying to her, that your husband was excellent to me, how can we do this? I will be oppressing him it will be oppressive to someone who's only been good to me. This is a tafsir another tafsir Yusuf alayhi salam is referring to Allah Rob, meaning Allah subhanho wa Taala his Lord and indeed Allah was was was good to him has always been good to him, in terms of his lineage, in terms of the lessons he received as a young boy, in terms of the brothers hearts being served of killing him, but instead throwing him into a well we said that was a mercy in terms of Allah choosing this minister to be in the slave market at the time when
use of Allah he Salam was there and being inspired to buy him anyone else could have bought him he could have been a total disaster. But Allah's Mercy was in here. So he's saying Allah was good to me. How can I deny Allah's laws? How can I go against Allah's instructions, when Allah has only been good to me? So he, here you have somebody else, it's a, it's a, you can say, a cooperative for this sin to happen. You need a cooperative effort, you need two people to come together. And here he is doing that our to her. Maybe Allah is not at the top of her mind, but He's appealing to her moral conscience. He's saying to her, upon that I've seen that your husband has been good to me saying to
uh, how can I answer your call that you can imagine? He's a weak person, he's the slave. By default, he has to jump when she says jump and not only jump, he has to say how high? That's his reality. That's his circumstance. That's his situation. That is his situation. But yeah, he's pleading you saying, Hold on here? Yes, you are my master. Yes, I'm the slave. But how can we do this to your husband? To my master? How can we do this, he's only been good to me. He's appealing to her moral conscience. And this is another highlight for us here, that we shouldn't forget the opportunity of the hour that we shouldn't engage. But also we should build people up, that they're calling us to
evil, we should desist from answering the call to evil, but we should also give them down SubhanAllah. And this is from the completeness of a believers character, from a believer as a man, from the completeness of a belief as a man, from the completeness of a believer recognizing Allah being far away from ignorance, that you can better the person who's trying to pull you down, he or she is trying to pull you down and you putting your hand out trying to pull them up Subhanallah they intent is to make you drown with them. But you know, you stable, you know, Allah has assisted you, you know, you said, there's no way they can pull you in, and you reach out to pull them out. Subhan
Allah, so this is a lesson, then Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us Subhanallah of a third reality and it's a reality. That means something to us in the 21st century, especially what we should do when we are faced with a test the test of disobedience, you need to take the means to get out.
Now what was useful to means and discuss this with our brothers and sisters in Sydney, but perhaps we can expand a little bit here.
What was his means?
Everything was shot. Everything was locked, because no one in the room. She was the master no doubt she set the scene. In terms of the other helpers in the home if there was security, the security in the home where they would be she planned this to the letter T as they say in the English language plan to the tee.
So what could he do? SubhanAllah. He bolts for the door. He posts for the day you might say that's a weak means use of use of what are you doing? That's a weak means of trying to save yourself that door is locked. What is use of teaching us. You take the means wherever you find it to save yourself from the fitness. Don't leave yourself in that factor. You've appealed to her moral conscience. You've appealed to the moral
conscience of the person who is calling you to the disobedience of Allah is still not enough it doesn't mean you can just leave yourself there. You need to get out of that environment. Why if you don't, you will become desensitized and if you become desensitized the environment will calibrate you to become from its ilk
to adopt it to normative values use Valley he Salem is teaching us get out because your Eman will be calibrated if you're not careful. Your Islam will be calibrated for the worse calibrated normally is bringing something of calibration back onto track this will calibrate you reverse calibration called reverse calibration. But even reverse calibration cannot be used for use of Ira Hisar because he was upon his fitrah
he was appointed fitrah but you get the point My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam he's teaching us you need to x exit yourself from that environment. And this goes back to the earlier point that I was discussing that don't ever rely on yourself and think No my Eman is of a special level I can I can be with her by ourselves with halwa no one can see us and I can give her doubt don't test yourself like that.
Don't put yourself in that test.
Do not challenge shaytan in this way.
Do not go against the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning disobey Him and disrespect the Sunnah in this way? No, for if you want to do the hour, there's an environment that the Sunnah has told you to create for the tower to take place. Take someone with you. Because the more people you have with you, the further back shaytaan is from you.
It should be no it should be no intermingling. There should be no Hello. Seclusion with her.
Yusuf alayhi salam is teaching is this is use of and is running for the door. Now you could say it's a weak means it's a waste of time. Why are you reaching out for a drawer that is locked, it's not going to take you to safety, but use of his teaching us. That is the way of a believer, you do try your best to go for the exit door to get to an environment that is pleasing to Allah that a believer doesn't love for a moment to keep himself or herself in an environment that is displeasing to Allah subhanho attack. This is what Yusuf is teaching us. And subhanAllah How valuable is his lesson in the 21st century? SubhanAllah? What advice do we live through? And what will our children live
through? We need to teach this to our children. This stepped approach to getting out of sticky situations, getting out from environments that constitute the disobedience of Allah. We've said much I hope you summarizing them how are we making those mental notes if you're not taking written notes,
the doors shut. It may be a weak means, but it's still a means take it, take it And subhanAllah you don't know.
Which means you will take that Allah subhanho wa Taala will open for you through. And this means that he took was a means for him because when he got to the door, the only one who could open the door was her husband. And he had opened the door Subhanallah she planned it in such a way no doubt so perfectly in her mind knowing that he wouldn't be at home at this time. You can imagine interact with the story interact with life, how meticulous washy
and as he gets to the door, a door that everyone would take say you wasting your time trying to to open it's locked. And when he gets to the door opens for him.
And Allah tells us that the husband is at the door. Now Subhanallah look at the way of the people who don't feel Allah subhanho Atta and we're talking about meticulous planning. Her planning was so meticulous that she had a contingency that if my husband catches us, I will flip it. And she does try to flip it. Immediately. She says when she sees her husband at the door, she says to her husband Subhanallah
merge as a woman or rather be Alakazoo and use gender or as she already knows the penalty, the punishment for this type of behavior. When you quote unquote attack the minister's family. It's jail time, or severe punishment. That's what she says. You know,
Allah subhanaw taala this backtrack was debacle, bap, he's going for the door and she's has so much lust for him. She read she raises him to the door to stop him from getting to the door. And what happens Allah says Subhanallah that she tears his shirt. And then wildfire say either her letter and
lo and behold at the door is her husband. You caught red handed what's going on here? What's going on here?
Why are you both chasing each other? Hey, what's going on? Immediately she has the line ready? She doesn't need to go into the details. She gives the lines
It brings about the impression to try and neutralize the situation for herself. She just says, What's the punishment? What is the penalty for the one who wishes evil for your family? Now remember, we've said throughout Subhanallah that use of not only is he beautiful in his in his looks, mashallah he's a man that can be called Beautiful. And Allah made him beautiful, right? And half of all beauty. But as we traveled through a series of Have you seen how beautiful this character is? Have you seen how beautiful he is Iman is, this is not just a Luca is not just a personality, he's a character, he's the real deal. Because you need to have character to behave like
this. You need to have character to tell her we can't do this, we will be oppressing your husband.
What level of character is this when you're a 40 year old man, you aren't married, you have every desire a man has. And you have a beautiful, powerful woman who owns this palace, who set the scene for you. And she presents you and I've said it before and I'll say it again a fitna that is oven ready, ready to be served. And you're a man at the peak of your manhood with all your desires, you aren't married. And he says to her, firstly, I seek refuge in Allah and secondly, he appeals to a moral conscience, this shows you the level of his character is not just the person who has looks, he has brains, he has a heart, he has a soul. He has a character Subhanallah that is beyond our, you
know, our abilities to imagined Subhanallah and we take guidance from this, that he was a man and he could do it and Allah is revealing the story for us to for us to aspire to inspire, be inspirational to to ourselves, inspire yourself to be a better person.
From the signs of his great character is his silence Subhanallah Subhanallah they always say that Subhan Allah sometimes you see a person and
you think, wow, this person is
you just feel this person is is the Haber and he they have an aura to them.
And that happens until something happens, what happens? They open their, their mouth. They open the Mercy
of Allah. I thought this person was a wise man.
It was better if he kept quiet. He opened his mouth out of the helicopter and he we who we know his reality. There's a story that goes back to Abu Hanifa once he was teaching.
There's different rewired rewired, if I recall, he was teaching the book of fasting. And when he was with his closest students, he would sit back a little bit and stretch his feet out. Because it was this little tiny measure this Cavalli Cohiba, it's sitting of knowledge, it has an aura, you sit with Adam, but when he was with his house, his closest students, he would stretch his legs out. And then one day a man with white hair, you know, bearded elderly walks into the gathering. And since immediately, Abu Hanifa brings his feet here.
And the man sits there quietly. And Abu Hanifa is teaching the lesson with utmost respect, because we have someone with an aura with us deserving of our respect. And then the person puts up his hand and he has a question.
Whether he puts up his hand Allah knows best but he he presented himself as a person who has a question and when Abu Hanifa entertained him.
He said to the Imam, what happens if the first of Ramadan happens to fall on the 10th of the hijab?
Because obviously you learning that you cannot fast on the day of Eid. So he's asking you a question. A 10th of the hedges that you have read or the first of Shawa is that you have read what happens if the first of Ramadan falls on the first of Shawa to the 10th of the hijab. So Abu Hanifa receives this question. And he says, if the first of Ramadan falls on the day of Eid, then it's time for Abu Hanifa to stretch his feet out again. And
because that aura has disappeared, that aura has, has disappeared. Use of every histogram Subhanallah to add to the beauty of his character is he summed is very excited. When do you hear use of in the stories? We only hear him and we've said this before and I will revise. This is the month of Ramadan a month of revision levels. We hear his voice when he's in the home of his father asking an intelligent question to his that.
When his brother steal him, we don't hear him. When his brothers trim down well, we don't hear him. When they steal his shed, we don't hear him. When the people of the caravan steal him from the well. We don't hear his voice when they transport him illegally and make him an alien in another land that now he's lost his citizenship and his residency and all sorts. We don't hear him. He's been slapped around in the slave market of Egypt. We don't hear him then what else?
He is in the home of this minister with the idol worship and immorality. We don't hear him. But suddenly we hear him. When do we hear him? We hear him when she calls him to her and when he speaks you think good luck.
Hola Hola. Hola. Hakeem his wise, when he speaks again at 40 You say Masha, Allah Tabarrok Allah, when he was young, he was a wise boy. And as a man, he is a wise man. And here as well he speaks. When she says what she says to her husband, Yusuf alayhi salam immediately speaks and says, By Allah here our destiny NFC, she is the one who called me to her.
She is the one who calls me to her use of Allah He slams voices heard again, you can count the times you hear use of either his Salam in this in this in the entire Surah Yusuf. And here is yet another one. And again, he's speaking out of the euro, out of necessity. And the scholars of faith have deduced from this verse, that it's compulsory upon a believer to preserve and protect his or her honor. If your honor is being called into question, you cannot keep quiet. You have to speak up and defend yourself. You have to produce the evidence, because the harms of not doing so are catastrophic. Firstly, it's oppression towards you. And you will be allowing other people to be
nurtured upon oppressing others in this way, if they do it you they'll do it to other people. Secondly, if you get married tomorrow and you have a child, do you not think this out of this defect, this issue, this negativity will not affect your child?
society isn't forgiving. My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, people gossip, people talk. Tomorrow your innocent child will be in a gathering. And he will hear something Subhanallah he would never ever imagined he would hear in that gathering. And it's something not true. You need to stand up your voice needs to be heard. In the same way we defend Islam, like Imam Muhammad, he was a man of honor. Even though he never spoke too much. He was known to have the songs, his speech was collected to the circles of knowledge to the to the circles in which Hadith was being presented. And then when Subhanallah he became of age and to his lessons to his students. But when they spoke to him about
the Quran, and the Quran is created.
Set the word of Allah but something created, you hear your voice. And he stood up for it all the time. Even when they lashed him you don't hear His voice. But you hear his voice when they spoke to him and said we'll stop lashing you just say the word. Say the sentence. Yeah, amen. And even then, he would say a wise word he would say to the leader of the Muslims, who was in charge of the beatings that he was getting Subhanallah the email Rahim Allah, He will say, tell me something from the Quran and the Sunnah that I can say, and I will say it.
This is when you have it and, and not here. But in here. This is when it
runs through transition Subhanallah it moves from your mind into your heart and then it shifts into your limbs. And this is where wisdom is developed from when you become a substantial person. And people are with you Subhanallah they feel empowered even through your silence. So use of teaches us this here. And Allah then blesses use of Allah he Salam, as Allah said, He will always turn away
these sinful acts and the sinful difficulties away from Who are we from the people who are sincere and Allah chooses Allah subhanho wa Taala places a witness and other scholars of Tafseer. They have gone into details of who this witness is. But perhaps the closest opinion is it was a wise man who was close to the minister who was around the minister around the minister's home, he happened to be there too. And when he assessed the situation, he said, Hold on. We have two views here, her vision and his vision. So what can we do? We need to look at the evidence, he studied the
context. And he saw that the shirt was torn at the back. And he spoke wisely in a few words, and said, If the shirt is torn from the front, then she's telling the truth, and he's lying. Because it would mean that he was going towards her and she was trying to get away from him. But if the shirts turned from the back, then he's telling the truth. And she's lying, because it means he was running to the door and she was behind him, pulling him to her. And immediately, the minister could see for himself everything that was happening. And the minister immediately said, when he saw what happened in the home in K Deacon, this is from your plot and your plan. This is from your plot and your plan.
That's what he said to his wife, very sternly. And Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals in Acadia couldn't have him. Indeed, the plot of the women is our theme is severe. Now, there's two talking points that we must take we must discuss before we move on. Firstly, firstly, especially in in the in the 21st century. It's not specific to the 21st century but it's also reaches the 21st century this idea of secondary evidence, When can it be used as evidence in a court of law? When can it be used as evidence in us developing for ourselves Gallup have done for us concluding on a circumstance and situation. We see here that the shirt does not primary evidence
primary evidence would be testimony. Right? But now we have conflicting testimony. primary evidence would be firsthand witnesses who saw with the eyes, they will know firsthand witnesses. Everything was shut, everything was locked. The only means that they had was what
was secondary evidence. And that was the shirt and the reality of the shirt. And for your information in today's day and age cameras do not constitute from a fifth perspective primary evidence. They constitute secondary evidence, because camera footage is open to, to what?
To manipulation? Exactly. camera footage is open to manipulation. So it is not primary evidence is considered secondary evidence. That doesn't mean what do we mean by this? We mean, for example, the penal punishments that Allah subhanahu Attallah revealed, these cannot be administered through secondary evidence. However, you could administer a separate punishment on aesthetic zero, which the rule of the land decrease and decides this is zero via secondary evidence. Now, that's talking point number one talking point number two. Can we say from this, that the plight of women is more severe than the protege upon because Allah subhanahu ATAR. In the Quran, he says about shaytaan Sprott in
Acadia. shaytani. Khanna the ephah, the proto shaytan is weak. And here in Nikita, hakuna are the indeed the product of human severe is our team is great. No, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we shouldn't misuse the Quran. Because sometimes we see this, we see some men, some husbands say this to their spouses, as if to mean that their harm to them is greater than the harm of shape. And the reality is the harm of Japan is ultimately greater. And if any human being does wrong to us, or is a means of us going astray, then they the means behind them being the means is a Shavon ultimately, okay, so this is just a footnote talking point here. The husband then immediately goes
on to say, useful for our didn't have, and this is what people of power sometimes have to do. You don't want a scandal, you don't want this to become public. You don't want the media to get hold of it. You don't want the tabloids to get hold of it. And then it becomes such a big issue. And it affects your job and you may have to resign and and and because some people sometimes use the mistakes of people's homes, to discredit their character discredit their integrity, their worthiness in public office, this was a minister he was in public office. So immediately he says to us have it done, how they just turn away from it meaning similar to what we would say to someone today it's
just forget about it. Just forget about it. I believe you you right, I'm sorry about this, just forget about it. And he says to his wife was stuffy, really them big seek forgiveness for your sin. seek forgiveness for your sin. And there's a talking point here seek forgiveness from Who is he saying seek forgiveness from Allah did these people believe in Allah, some commentators have said that they believed in Allah, they believed in Allah as the Lord, but they associated partners with Allah subhanho wa taala. And some say here, seek forgiveness for what you've done from your husband, and you back your husband's pleasure from that which you have done. And then he said to her in their
continual heartbeat, as if to say, I don't want to have any discussion anymore. Indeed, without doubt you are from the Centers, you are from the ones who have you who have done wrong, meaning this matter is not open to discussion anymore. The style and approach of speech that he uses with her is one that is an absolute, that you cannot change my mind, you cannot bring to me now. You know, a plausible alternative. The matter is, Dan, I believe use of I don't believe you sort yourself out. This is what he does. And this is what he says, Now we have a longer lesson coming up. And well,
maybe we can traverse through it, because we've missed a day here. But before I get to it, I want to take this to modern day applications, modern day applications of a man and a woman in a room with the doors locked with the doors shut. And we have this in virtual rooms that the various social media applications provide for us what they call the DMS the direct messages, right, and the WhatsApp messages. And sometimes the Zoom meeting rooms and the other virtual rooms that social media platforms also bring to us facilitate Subhanallah a man and a woman getting into a private room together and of course
the ones who facilitate this and they are the ones who are privy to the details of what happens in that room. But nonetheless, when you are virtually in the room with another physical human being
then the fitna is physical as well. Don't let shape and deceive you don't think this is a virtual fitna. I'm living
the metaverse and it's not real. No fitna is real. The fitna is real, because from that virtual private room shaytaan will push you into a physical private room.
Do not underestimate my dear brother and sustained Islam, this fitna between males and females.
I don't want to come across as apologetic because the trend today is to say people who talk about men desiring women and women for employment. This is like 1970s 1960s Brother and sustain Islam. Allah subhanho wa taala. Those are timeless. Allah revealed the laws of interaction between the genders. These laws are timeless. You can never ever say that this idea of a man falling for a woman and a woman for a man when you keep them in a mixed environment in an environment together day after day you give them open access to each other is not real, because you've reached 2020.
With a twitter 1000 and 20s Allah suppose a timeless
do not attribute yourself a power that Allah did not give you
do not attribute to yourself a power that Allah did not give you. If Allah's laws are timeless, it means that the laws apply even in this century. And it happens. Just recently, I'm dealing with the case of a married brother practicing Subhanallah and American sister, and Allahumma. Stan, they've admitted to doing the ACT
Subhanallah how he maybe didn't feel comfortable confiding in his wife in a few things. And she didn't feel comfortable confiding in her husband in a few things, and somewhere along the line, the paths crossed, and then, you know, he confided in her, and then she felt comfortable to confide in him. Then he becomes her shoulder and she becomes his shoulder. And over time, what happens.
You don't go from A to Zed. You just didn't one on one, you know, you don't take one step and you trip over time. What happens is when you break this thing down, their conversation conversation started a year ago, 18 months ago, what they quote unquote, called plutonic. It's nothing he just my brother in Islam, my sister in Islam.
Okay, now what's happened? You've had your wife, and you've hurt your husband? How do you explain that?
Oh, people of the 21st century.
And maybe it started on the virtual on, you know, on Facebook, or Instagram. And we do know of some apps that started as apps dedicated to push immorality. And then it was converted into general interaction apps. But Subhanallah they didn't drop the door to the to the immoral behavior happening on these applications. And then we give our children these phones and these devices we call it smart phones they fit into phones.
The phone might be smart, but how do you describe the person giving the child this access?
The opposite of smart is what
Allah who understand
Allah who Mr. And don't think for one moment that your child is safe your child isn't safe. Lois is in a shape on hola como. I don't want you though, who are doing indeed shaytaan to you is an enemy take shape as an enemy? Take him as an enemy? Are you taking him as an enemy when you open the avenues for your child? The avenues that constitute the tools of Shavon to take your child away from Allah subhanho wa taala? Are you taking shaitan as an enemy's like someone tells you outside the medina here, there's an enemy with weapons.
They have guns, auto, automatic, semi automatic weapons. And you say what, let me open all the doors and windows. But what would you do? Immediately when you receive this instruction? What is the what would we do guys? Would we not get the mutawa Lee of this property, the person in charge to shut the door shut? Would we not feel that we have a right to help him secure the Medina. That's when you take an enemy as an enemy. Allah says Shavon is an enemy take shape and as an enemy. And today we say no. The other kids have it. No, they deserve it. No, this is this the time this is the place Subhanallah I came across a report a few a couple of years back that you know, these big execs of
Silicon Valley. They keep their children on paper. On paper. They don't they create the devices and the software for the devices and the apps but their children they keep them on paper until their late teens until the late teens. I'm not saying don't give your your child a mobile device if you need to communicate with him. But like I said to the brothers in Sydney and Brisbane, you know, back in the day something called the Nokia you know back in the day okay, Nokia still exists Nokia still exist, but the back in the day Nakia I'm not talking about the ones that could break your hands. The ones that you could use as a weapon if a thief came to you know those big bricks that you could
throw you don't know you still have decent ones but mashallah, what can you do with
them you can dial they can receive a call, you can send a text message you know text messages SMS. Some of us have forgotten it I see some young people I don't know your generation guys if you have SMS you guys were born post WhatsApp Mama Mama Andreeva something called SMS through SMS summons it was SMS, somebody called SMS and guess what, mashallah, the battery life, two weeks, you don't have to charge the phone. You don't have to think Wallahi I might phone my son and the battery will be flagged Baraka, those were the days of Baraka. Subhana Allah of blessings. So be wise, be wise. You don't have to, you know,
have this peer pressure. This peer pressure, my neighbor's son got it for his son for it. And the children at school have this game. Some of these games on the Xbox and the PlayStation. The age rated games. Your son is telling you though, it's a fighting game. By go look into it yourself. Go see how many scenes are immoral in that game. The game will take you into somebody's bedroom into somebody's bathroom. Hola. Hola. Stan, go have a look. You think the people out there they want to take your child to gender? No, they want to fill their pockets. It's a business. Your child is a consumer.
I don't want to make this
that kind of recession but we're talking about sort of use of in the 21st century we're talking about a person who bolted for a door that was shut he took a closed door as a means to get out of the trouble.
What about you and me? Oh seven of allah how many triggers are we going to allow to exist around us the triggers
we come across them and it triggers us into haram
and coming back to you know the bread the male female relationship. So it is a tricky one. So it's a tricky one because Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has made within us this Hannah and this loveliness, this kindness, it can happen even in the office environment, you try and say we're going to maintain things but one day Subhanallah the brother is going to come he's going to come to work and he's unwell. And she's going to say subhanallah you're not well, and he's gonna say I have a bit of an I have a bit of a cold I have a bit of a flu out of the kindness of her heart when she goes for lunch she might just come across some honey. Let me pick up some honey for the brother.
So inshallah it will help him with his his cold and he she comes and gives him honey Chitwan, you might have your intentions Shavon has other intentions. The next day after a few weeks she comes Subhanallah late to work for a few days what's happening oh no, my son you know maybe something happened and He's in hospital you need to go to talk to the doctor. She's stressed at work. He is helping her with the workload trying to be kind to her. Is she not received receiving this kindness? Of course she's receiving this kindness. What do you think is going to happen over time? Do you think the stone cold feelings that they had for each other when they first met each other are going
to remain? Now they become warm feelings. Stone Cold, becomes lukewarm, then it becomes warm, then it gets hotter then it gets its its life. Allah subhanho wa Taala created us he sent the laws. These laws are sent for a creation from a creator who knows the creation better than the creation knows himself or herself.
Now Subhanallah you know this is being recorded. It's being mashallah published. You will see Allah knows best people will say the chef's What are they talking about? They backwards everything is haram, but Allah he will speak upon that which we believe from the Quran and from this one.
And my job is to save me from the Hellfire before you. So I'm not going to sit here and remain quiet so that you don't feel offended because of what I've had to say. If that was the way of data the prophets would have kept quiet.
We also handle a celebrity protect as well. So let us hold you know hold ourselves accountable and to a very high level when it comes to the gender interactions My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam because Shavon uses it as a powerful tool to pull us into haram and don't forget Xena is a major sin. Xena is a major sin. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when you look at her with lust that Zina of the eyes, why? Why call it Xena ya rasool Allah, this is a strong term. profits of Allahu Allahu wa sallam is guided by Allah. And Allah created the human being. And Allah knows the human being better than the human mean, being knows himself or herself. So take this
now what happens? The news gets out, the news gets out Subhanallah and the women of the city, obviously you got to think of the context of Egypt. This is back in the day you have the peasant life and you have the elite life. You can say the peasants started belittling the minister's wife, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book are called a nice Watsonville Medina.
The women of the medina set in Morocco Tula as is the minister's wife, guess what, you know what she's doing to raw we do Fatah
her and she is enticing her Fattah her slave
pick up the words
she's enticing her slave. And guess what he's not even interested in
his enticing his her slave and she's not even he doesn't even want her.
So they go on to say, God the Shiva Subhanallah she's drowning in lustful desire for her slave boy, kind of a woman is this we we are called peasants. We don't even do this. Then they say in Atlanta Raha feeble le boubyan Indeed, we see her in clear and plain error shame on her.
The amount of time Subhanallah he deduces from this verse 10 ways just from this one verse to just by looking at the language 10 ways through which the women of the city pull her down, and teach I've taught this in Alcocer. So the use of course Shala, you can catch it online. Otherwise, if we make the set of circles we won't finish similar to the board course. He did, uses 10 ways from the eloquence of the Quran. In one verse, the Quran teaches us 10 ways that the people of the city the women of the city, put her down.
Allah subhanho wa Taala is for MSME to be Macrina. When the minister's wife heard of their plot, look how Allah calls it a plot and the scholars of the CDF deduce from this, that the women of the city, they were intrigued, we have to see the slave boy, and they knew the only way for us to do so is if we make known to her that we are belittling her in the city.
So this is a plot. This was a ploy. This was a means for them to get an invite to the to the palace, and they knew the ego of the minister's wife. If she sees that we are bringing her down, she will call us to the palace to see
what got her to do what she did. So Allah just Allah didn't say philam Some yet be Kalami him when they heard her speech, Allah didn't say that Allah says when she heard of their prot, meaning their speech, but their speech that was approached to get themselves into the house, what did she do? She didn't select either when she sent to them and invite well after that lovin and she prepared for them. Metallica a banquet,
a meal worthy of royalty.
And when they had eaten, and they were filled, and they were happy, and they were relaxed, and they were in this sort of an expecting, kind of form. She what does she do? She commands use of to come into the room. Now she's the slave she can. She's the master. He's the slave. When she says it, he has to come.
Somebody might analyze this and say but use of knew what was happening. One minute, he's taking the means to get out of fitna by going for a locked door. But the next minute now he's coming into a room full of women. Surely he knows women are there. Yes, he knows women are there, but he's been commanded is still a slave. Don't forget the eloquence of the Quran doesn't allow us to forget the situation of use of his reality and compared to the reality of those around him, that this free man now was a slave beyond his wish, when he was born free, and he was free with Allah subhanho wa taala. But we see him playing the role. That over here, people called me a slave. I was bought as a
slave, I will resign to that reality and do what I'm told to
seeing the bigger picture here.
There's a bigger plan that he knows Allah has for him. If he is kicked out of this home, he might be in a worse home, you understand? And we learn from this moral Atilla hawan Moratalla hawan is this idea of
looking at the bigger picture understanding the unique
nuances of your environment, that sometimes Subhanallah you have two circumstances both of them are harmful, and one is constitutes a greater harm than the other. So what do you do? You go with the lesser harm to forbid, the greater harm, isn't it to an extent, to an extent because it's always relative, the situations will change, the tables will turn and we'll see this now. So he's playing his part, he's taking the lesser harm, so that he can remain in this home because he's in a better place in this home. In comparison to the other options out there. He walks onto them. They were in this unexpecting sort of manner of this they see this angel before them. The beauty of use of you
talking about a man that possesses half of all beauty. And as they have the fruits and they have the knives and they cutting the fruit to eat the fruit. They become so stunned and in a state of shock in a state of all of this beautiful man that they see that they cut through the fruit until it affects their hand.
in effect, as if they are testifying to how handsome he was with their blood, vindicating the minister's wife, and that she is saying, Look, I had to live with him all these years. And you all from one glance, you are testifying to his beauty with your blood, your hands are bleeding.
And she becomes more empowered in her sin, despite her husband saying, seek forgiveness for what you did sort yourself out. You are from those who did wrong. What does she do? She becomes boastful. She becomes Subhanallah arrogant in her misguidance she says Subhanallah arrogantly fatherly couldn't allow the Illuminati Illuminati. This is the person who you were all trying to make fun of me over this is this is the person that you were speaking ill
about me in the city. This is the person that caused my trials. She became arrogant, and she says well, Nakagawa to infc I indeed enticed him to me I indeed tried to get to him. What up what you all said in the city is true? I did it took at the height of arrogance. Subhanallah when you drown in misguidance, the Howler wanna call it a leveler. She says first tassa La Ilaha illa Allah, look at Allah's mercy upon use of look at Allah has just in case anyone is doubting use of Allah he Salam, Allah proves his innocence to us using her words. She says, I called him to me, I tried my best to get him, but he resisted.
Is a mercy from Allah. Remember, we always try and go into the subtle nurses that are around us whenever there's, whenever there's a trial in a test. We don't know this is from the subtleness. Because she says this year later on in the story, when use of refuses to come out of the prison until the King asked the women of the city what happened? How did the women of the city know the use of it is innocent? Because they are with her in the room right now when she says I called the him to me and he refrained. So they became witnesses to her statement. Subhanallah and then she puts the ultimatum on the table for him. She says, And if use of doesn't do what I've asked him to do, then
the consequence of this is nothing other than prison. Do you think she wants to have another scandalous altercation with a husband? No, he doesn't want to have it. So what is she going to do? She's going to get rid of him and lock the key. So her voice remains and his voice is hidden. This was the only way to do it. She says if he doesn't do what I say. Then they use Jana. When a coup
Nam mera Savini. There's a talking point here. Why when she talks about prison they use Jana. She uses what the Arabic language experts call at noon at Tokyo, tequila.
And when she talks about him being from the belittled because she tells him I will jail you and you will be from the belittled.
Meaning from those considered and worthless.
When she talks about him being from the unhealthy ones she can't use she doesn't use noon at tilted tequila. What is Luna Takeda? At the top you follow me? Luna Takeda Satilla is a noon in the Arabic language that you place at the end of a verb to emphasize that verb to emphasize it.
Allah says letter to Hulu letter Quran Al Masjid Al haram. Right this is with noon at Takeda tequila, you will without doubt enter mystical haram.
Without the Loon The meaning is you will enter Masjid Al haram. With that noon, you will without doubt enter Masjid Haram but there's a second variation to this noon that is known as as for FIFA, the lighter noon of confirmation. So you have the dual of confirmation is two types, the heavier one and the lighter one. She uses the heavier one in terms of prison. And in terms of him being from the belittles uses the light on
why? From the eloquence of the Quran as well.
Allah is teaching us that even she knew that prison was in her hands, but uses Ana is maintainence. And what will happen with it is not in her in her hands. I can guarantee you prison, but I can't guarantee your name being spiked Subhan Allah Subhan Allah because that is a matter that is with the power beyond me. Do you see this interact with the Quran? The subtleties of Han Allah, when you read the verse that you pick up, and you you experience the beauty of the Quran, you say subhanallah we just read the verse. With the untrained eye it just seems like what we read in the English meaning but Subhanallah here with the train the eye and the train the year we extract from it. meanings
behind the meanings Subhanallah
that no one in life can guarantee you a down for my dear brother and sustain Islam, they may guarantee you physical harm that Allah has put within their sphere of of control, and that will be oppression from them towards you and Allah will deal with them. But no one is in control of your honor. No one is in control of your honor. I was dealing with a family Subhanallah
it was one of those unique circumstances because husband marries his wife, and mashallah, she's a genuine human being. And she's kind to her mother in law. However, the mother in law,
perhaps it was a cultural thing, she kept on shifting ideas from the home out of the home. And it became very burdensome on this wife. And at the end, after several years, we're talking about a long time, not just one year, two years, we're talking about a long time, maybe maybe seven or eight years of marriage, I can't recall the exact details. It became unbearable for her. And she started seeking from her husband that look, we need to live separately, we need to live separately, maybe we can get your brother to look after your mother. She's been living with us maybe you know, because it's becoming unbearable, the situation is not healthy.
Obviously at the beginning, some takes the it takes the the defense the mother over the wife, and the wife is patient through this. But over time, the husband realizes Subhanallah that my mother is definitely at fault and I need to do something, I'm going to lose my marital home. You know, we're going to have to single parent our children. So he makes a move, and he gets the mother to go stay with the brother beyond her wish. And it creates a fitna in the family. What happens, rumor goes around the family, and not just the family in their city to other cities as well, that this woman, and this man, they kick their mother and mother in law out of the house.
They kicked her out.
did she have a role to play in it, she had a role to play in it. Now. They had the choice to defend themselves or not. And subhanAllah was interesting is the husband didn't defend himself. He didn't defend his home. And the reason why he didn't defend his home is because his wife said, Don't defend us. Because if you defend us, we would have to say things about her that I wouldn't love anyone to say about my own mother. Allahu Akbar, how beautiful is this ladies, this woman Subhanallah beautiful character. She needs her mother in law. And even though this situation is bringing to her harm, and her daughter she has, she has children who are hearing this and it's difficult. She tells
her husband, let's just be patient, don't defend yourself to the family, you might call them, they don't pick up the phone, you might go to the home, they might not open the door because they've really waged war against us because of what's being said, let's not defend ourselves. Because if we do, we will have to say things about your mother about my mother in law about our quote unquote, mother, that I would love for someone to say about my mother, I'm not comfortable with it. Subhanallah and they lived a year, a year and a half like this sense. Pamela after some time, Allah has made the truth come out in a grassroots way.
And the innocence has been preserved. That no and this is this is a lesson. No one is in control of your own. Sometimes you get put in a situation that's beyond your control. Use of here he is in a difficult situation.
But what does he have my honor being spoiled by people who don't have control over it? Or me spoiling my honor by doing what she says.
And disobeying Allah subhanahu edad
Subhanallah think about this use of it he Salem we hear his voice again. And again. What a beautiful character he has. How amazing is his voice use of says Subhanallah Robbie Oh my lord, a CG do I have Bhulaiyaa prison is more beloved to me. Me Me. Yeah, the rule and the LA instead of that which they all are calling me to and some of the scholars have said here that in this trial of use of it wasn't one woman calling him to her. It was the women of the city calling him to them. He says Allah Oh my lord, oh, my protector prison. The great this harm here is more beloved to me it's a lesser harm.
me falling prey to the course and he says to Allah subhanahu atta and this is from the conversation. I always say to you, although it is not just this application is the conversation one has with Allah. He says to Allah subhanahu atta Allah, if you hear Allah don't turn away the plot, what they're calling me to this haram that they're calling me to this product that they're calling me this product that I'm I'm being pulled into a spool Eli him look at his honesty as a man proving what I was saying to you all.
Do not beat yourselves up and challenge upon and put yourself in circumstances situations. This is a prophet of Allah saying, Your Allah if you don't take the circumstance, this environment away from me. I will be inclined towards them.
To be honest with you, I'll be I'm a man
Y'all I'ma man, us, boy him. I'm going to be inclined towards them. Yes, I'm a prophet. Yes, you've given me, Tino Hockman we're in now you've given me knowledge and the ability to put it into practice. But I'm also human being
I have human nature.
If you don't save me from this environment, yeah Allah by even if it means throwing me into prison, a spoiler him, I'm going to fall prey to the environment because I'm a man. And when I do so he says to Allah, I will be from the ignorant ones. I said this to you at the beginning of our citizens are useful when I try and tie the different portions of the story together. Remember, when the question was asked? That chef in your travels? What's the biggest problem you've seen? Common problem? What? You've seen problems in different places in the world? What can you bring it down to? And what was my answer? I said one thing.
People who are ignorant of Allah
when I see them fighting over inheritance, fighting as husbands and wives ready to break their homes when they have children, not winning, okay? Sometimes your marriage can last but fight at least try at least. Why don't you have the desire to try?
brothers fighting with Sisters Brothers fighting with brothers business partners fighting with each other trustees of a committee of a masjid.
Now Ilaha illa Allah and the list goes on. When you analyze it Allah He boils down to one thing, ignorance of who Allah is ignorance you might
know no Allah, but it's one of those you think you know, but you don't know.
And when the question was asked, okay, Chef, what's the antidote?
The antidote is learn about Allah,
studying with his names and attributes, and then pondering over his creation and see what he's done for you.
Use of his teaching as this from the rule book, My dear brother in sustained Islam, he is saying to Allah, if you don't save me from this, I will fall into the sin and I will be from the ignorant ones. Those who are ignorant of what
ignorant of Allah's rules? No, he knows Allah's rules. Why is he making dua for prison? Yeah, Allah I will be ignorant of you. Yeah, Allah. I will be ignorant of who you are.
I would have acted in a way that shows I don't know who you I am. And the scholars have deduced from this that no person falls into sin except that when they are ascending, they are ignorant of Allah at that moment.
Allah subhanho wa Taala as he looks after the macula scene and the meclizine he responds to us and says first hijab Allahu Akbar festa. Jabba Hora boo for sarafa. And who que de Haan, Allah responded to his dua, and Allah turned away from him, they pretend they're plotting and their sinful actions in the who who was Samuel Haleem. Indeed, Allah is the old hearing, he is the old knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala system, but Allah will mean by the Mara will yet let your student who had to him the minister's wife and the women, they concluded, when they saw use of and his resistance and his resilience and his beautiful character, that despite all our all our attempts, there's nothing left
for us to do. But to save ourselves from any scandalous tabloids, we need to shut him up. We need to get rid of him, we need to place him into prison, and they did without a trial.
Without a record, without a file without a key. And here we come to the end of another phase in the life of Yusuf alayhi salam when we return Insha Allah we will begin another phase and that is use of Allah he Salam in the prison. I love you all for the sake of Allah everything correct sir is from Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and he is perfect in any mistakes or from myself and Shelton and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala His forgiveness May Allah forgive us for our sins and welfare grant us the bad grantor steadfastness dollars to spend to do what is right, especially in a world where people tell us we backwards for trying to do what is right what is right we have subhanho wa Taala make us
trust his instructions and his plan over the instructions and plan of the Creation especially those who want to take us astray. I mean, you're blind I mean, how the Allahu anima SallAllahu wasallam Oh Baraka ala Nabina Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam ala Alikum or whatever
