Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Karim Allah early he was so happy that you marry and my bad. We begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to combat a loving nomikos Salah man, we enlist hundreds Taala accept from us and Allah accept our first 10 except our second 10 and bless our third 10 We are a few hours into the 21st Night Subhan Allah hamdulillah exciting times. Do you Do you feel it? You feel like Subhan Allah this Hadiya this gift was given by Allah subhanho wa Taala to you and you just feel excited for it. It's like a little bit

00:00:41--> 00:00:48

eat before an eighth. And this is the reality for a believer. This is our reality. We always recognize celebration in

00:00:50--> 00:00:51

the opportunity to build jump.

00:00:53--> 00:01:13

And what an opportunity to build Jana these days of Hanalei and these nights, especially these nights, we Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us Alpha DOS, Amin, and before that grant has many, many layers of cattle. Many many nights of power and decree and verge, Amin Yara Ballymena, may Allah make our time in the medina

00:01:15--> 00:01:30

except solely for his sake sincerely for his pleasure. And May he accept our Salah and our Cara, our recitation of the Quran, and may He subhanho wa Taala accept our study of the Quran as well.

00:01:31--> 00:01:49

Welcome everyone to yet another installment of Surah Yusuf in the 21st century. And yesterday, we went through a longer episode it made up for the shorter episode the day before Insha Allah, and it was titled Made to Stick part two,

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

as a continuation from our lesson the day before Made to Stick part one.

00:01:56--> 00:02:02

And for those who weren't here, I named it I think the episode made the stick from a famous book that was written,

00:02:04--> 00:02:27

dedicated to this idea of how to transfer information from or ideas from one mind to another mind, from one person to another person, how to make the ideas that you have in your mind stick in the mind and heart of somebody else. And the reason why I call it this because we had that our master class for use of either his Salah when he was placed into the prison. And just to bring back

00:02:29--> 00:02:36

you know, the scene and the setting, let's not forget that use of Alayhis Salam, he's in prison here.

00:02:38--> 00:03:25

You know, as someone who is oppressed, and not someone who is oppressed with the public, knowing that he's being oppressed. Sometimes you have someone who's jailed, and they being oppressed, and the public see them as a battle. They see them as a hero. They see them as we can't wait for that hero to get out. And putting that person in prison only increased the love that the people had for that person now uses Islam is not from this round, right? Because you have all these women participating in a plot to silence the heck to preserve the sanctity and their aura by throwing him without trial into prison. And you could effectively say after that they throw away the key. So use

00:03:25--> 00:03:28

of his he went into the prison with with this reality.

00:03:30--> 00:04:05

This is an extra test with throughout our episodes, we've been talking about the weaknesses of use of first he was a young boy, then he was an abducted young boy. Then he was an abducted, abducted young boy. So three tests because he was abducted a second time when they took him from the well. Then he was transported out of Egypt and made an alien. So now he's a foreigner, this is another weakness, then he is told as a slave, another weakness, then he's forced to live in a home of idolatry and poor moral behavior, another weakness, and then

00:04:06--> 00:04:34

he's now thrown into prison in this way, not with the reputation that's intact outside of the prison, but with the real chance that his reputation is worth. And no doubt the honor of a believer is everything. And like we already said use his voice is almost unheard of. In Surah Yusuf, however, when it comes to his honor and the preservation of his honor, we hear his voice when he said, Carla here our destiny and let's see, she's the one who tried to. She's the one who tried to seduce me SubhanAllah.

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

So, the fact that use of Alayhis Salam spoke up here, what does this mean? This means that his honor means everything to him. And now he's thrown into prison with no guarantee of his honor being protected, will no guarantee of his honor being preserved. But Subhan Allah as we said yesterday, he had his Allah in His heart and the beauty of his character just keep shining through just keep shining through just keep shining through why because

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

We have testimony from people in the prison, that Yusuf is amazing.

00:05:05--> 00:05:37

Because these two inmates who had the dream, they come to him, and they say to him interpret the dream for us in a rock or mineral magazine, we see you from the ones who do good. You remember I said, if use of was depressed in prison, crying over spilt milk, crying over matters, he doesn't have control over, allowing himself to become stressed. Would he be from the doers of good? Would he be someone who these people would see as you know what, let's approach him, he's approachable. He seemed like a proactive person. He seemed like a person who's well read they wouldn't.

00:05:39--> 00:05:51

So they are testifying that use of he is phenomenal. It is and they don't even know about his circumstances, the situation or the coton, meaning quote, unquote, the crime that has that he's done

00:05:52--> 00:06:03

that they know he's in prison, but they see him as one person and everybody else as a group of people. And again, I will repeat for the third episode, a believer is someone who happens to a situation

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

not someone who lets a situation happen to them.

00:06:08--> 00:06:14

The believer is the one who strikes a situation and that situation transforms for the better because of his or her presence.

00:06:16--> 00:06:55

Not the other way around, where the believer goes somewhere and the environment strikes them and changes them. And then we have identity crises and a hijab crisis and beard crisis and Islamic identity crisis that we see in the dow of use of and we're not going to go through it again today because we spent an hour yesterday so please do see the the episode on the national soccer foundation YouTube channel and on my YouTube channel as well. You we went into the details Subhanallah of how perfect this man was, and how he's announcing to them that he knows who he is. What about Lila to eBay, Ibrahim Oh Is Hardcore Jakob and meaning I know my identity, I am upon the

00:06:55--> 00:07:04

way of my forefathers, Ibrahim and is happening I hope. And by the way, everywhere in the Quran, we see this this idea of following your forefathers

00:07:05--> 00:07:50

mentioned to us in a manner that isn't praiseworthy, except here, except here, following your forefathers in this manner is is praiseworthy, but the Quran is not telling us that it's praiseworthy because he's following his forefathers. He's saying what the middle letter that I'm upon the guided way of my of my grandfather's right. And Allah tells us that this middle refers to this guided way because when Allah subhanahu Allah tells us about Ibraheem Alehissalaam in the Quran what does he say? My kind of Ibrahim we are who do Allah and Asani or Well, I can kinda Hanifa machinima. His Mila was of being upright and being a submitter. Allah says Ibrahim was not a Jew or

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

a Christian, but he was upright submitted to Allah.

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

mil letter A B Kimmy Brahim, who was a male common Muslim in as Allah tells us in the Quran,

00:08:02--> 00:08:37

that this submission in the true submission is the middle of Ibrahim. So when he says what the better to mill letter bear, he he's not saying I'm praiseworthy, because I'm following my grandfather's. No, I'm I'm praiseworthy, because I'm following guidance. The guidance that was that I found was my grandfather's. They were prophets. I know my identity of a prophet, the son of a prophet, the son of a prophet, the son of the Prophet. All this life I've lived through my teens through my 20s through my 30s in my 40s and I'm in the prison I see idols I don't see people worshipping one Allah mentioning Allah all this didn't affect me.

00:08:39--> 00:08:48

All the circumstances around me didn't affect me. I'm still not aware of my father's. You are telling me oh inmates that I am from those who do good. Let me tell you why.

00:08:50--> 00:08:57

Let me tell you why. You need to know what I'm upon that makes me different in your testimony from everybody else here.

00:08:58--> 00:09:04

And subhanAllah we see this guidance, because immediately he goes on and says to them,

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

after mentioning all these

00:09:08--> 00:09:46

realities of his and his, we discussed some of the psychology here yesterday, you must watch yesterday's episode, guys, it's very important those who missed it, do watch it, because we really went into the psychology here. But to tap into something that I missed yesterday, this idea of attribute and I might have said it please forgive me if I'm repeating it. This idea of attributing goodness to Allah subhanaw taala. Immediately when he announces why they see meaning, he announces to them the reasons why they see him from the people who do good, and that he's upon the way of his forefathers be guided way of his forefathers, the forefathers the grandfathers who are guided

00:09:46--> 00:09:53

immediately after he tells them that what does he say Valley coming from the Lucha Elena oneness. This is from Allah's father.

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

He's, and this is from the signs of guidance and righteousness.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

Someone who

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

was guided, they attribute their success to Allah.

00:10:05--> 00:10:23

They don't say it's my intelligence, my skills, you know my batting skills, my bowling skills. Did you see how I how I did this and how I did that? Did you see the Yorker I bowled in Australia I don't know it's cricket and cricket is a big thing here obviously, come on guys. Well, you know, from all over the world we know be the Aussie is

00:10:25--> 00:11:09

actually meaning in anything you pass your exams, my skills, my hard work, my intelligence, you get a promotion. Just my forecasting, it was my vision it was it was my perception that the people of guidance they attributed to Allah subhanho wa taala. They passed the exam to Delhi coming from the legs from the father of Allah Subhan Allah Allah helped me. Allah chose me Subhan Allah, the how Allah Quwata illa biLlah there's no power, no matter except from Allah. You hold your hands up, then you come in from the lab, from Allah. Valley come in for the law here, Elena upon me. And guess what, even upon my forefathers, my forefathers, they were chosen by Allah. Allah honored them. He's

00:11:09--> 00:11:29

He's highlighting Subhan Allah, that is all Allah. There is no salvation through human being. Salvation is through having a direct connection to Allah subhanho wa taala. And then he says, what Allah Ness Subhanallah that this is not something specific to some group of people. It's the father of Allah upon us and upon the people.

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

upon anyone who wants to be guided, you will receive this father

00:11:34--> 00:11:46

upon anyone who wants to be thankful, wants to be grateful. How do you be thankful? And how do you be grateful? By recognizing Allah, when you recognize Allah, this is Schuco Lilla you are thanking Allah when you recognize Allah

00:11:48--> 00:12:16

and that's why straight after he says Well, I can the extra nasty lash Quran but most of mankind I'm thankful. Most of mankind are ungrateful, meaning most of mankind do not recognize Allah do not attribute their success to Allah. They don't give Allah His help. They do not worship Him alone. Because if you knew that everything about you is because of one Allah, then there's nothing left for you to do except the administrator, Mr. Team, you can do what you can to stay.

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

Think about it.

00:12:19--> 00:12:39

Think about it. If you knew who Allah is and what he's done for you, you think about it, hon. Allah The only thing left for you is to exclaim Yeah, can I do I can stand you alone? Do we worship here, Allah, and you alone do we seek assistance from because clearly, even the people who help us they only help us because you

00:12:41--> 00:12:44

inspired them to help us give them the means to help us.

00:12:46--> 00:13:20

So it's all Hola, hola, hola. Hola. Hola. At a level, you have to go into the you have to ponder, you have to ponder. So this is something Subhanallah that we missed yesterday. And I kept telling you yesterday, we were pulling out so many gems SubhanAllah. And I kept saying to the brothers and sisters that you know what I can write a book on this. We need to sit here for we did a course on this, that our master class just from Surah Yusuf. So we see this here as well, that from the success of a day is that he and anyone but especially a dairy, especially an Imam, especially a scholar, they attribute the success to Allah, what they know to Allah, what they've understood to

00:13:20--> 00:13:23

Allah, because they know Allah more than others.

00:13:24--> 00:13:37

And this is from a sign of a sense of being excellent with Allah subhanho wa taala. Also, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we see from this, that a society that doesn't respect

00:13:41--> 00:13:42

the people of Israel,

00:13:44--> 00:13:53

that do art, those who come to transform people's lives, who call people to transform their lives, who help people transform their lives.

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

A community that doesn't respect these people.

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

They're a community in a loss.

00:14:01--> 00:14:03

We are a community heading for destruction.

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

If you are jailing your scholars, if you are

00:14:12--> 00:14:18

character assassinating your Imams, and if you are blocking your do ad

00:14:20--> 00:14:29

and even to the extent Subhanallah that you choose not to attend that effort that they running for your benefit, when you have nothing better to do.

00:14:30--> 00:14:35

This is from not honoring you to add your Imams your scholars

00:14:38--> 00:14:50

use of you saying that I am upon the way of the Prophets the scholars are the inheritors of the prophets. And then use of you saying that this is and and this hair. This goodness is from Allah is further upon us.

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

So if you work against your Imams, your scholars your duet, then you are from the majority that are and thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

You can deduce this from the SubhanAllah.

00:15:05--> 00:15:15

If you think deep and deeper and deepest, you need to interact with the Quran. try and infer what's the what's the verse saying? Think about your 21st century circumstance,

00:15:17--> 00:15:37

underpaying your email. This is something that needs to be dealt with. It's unfortunate that we see this a lot here still in the 21st century, where people have any man but they underpaid the email, as if the Imam should have the worst life and dedicate his life to making everyone's life better. This is you and you are from the ungrateful ones. You are from the ungrateful ones.

00:15:38--> 00:16:00

The ones who Masha Allah. Yeah, Annie, your presentation of your mosque is about the country your carpets came from, and the country your chandelier came from, and the cost that it the cost that was used to create the Voodoo facility, but you pay your Imam half or less than half then what someone at his caliber

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

would get in society.

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

This is from being ungrateful.

00:16:06--> 00:16:10

Because the people of Islam they receive the loss further.

00:16:12--> 00:16:18

They are from very common familiar Elena Elena's Elena upon the prophets of Allah nurse who Allah chooses from the prophets.

00:16:21--> 00:16:28

So Allah sends you these people who he revealed this photo to and then you disobey them you disrespect them up little them.

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

You make don't make dua for them.

00:16:34--> 00:16:49

This is a problem. You got to ask yourself, use of you saying the few are grateful to Allah the majority are not which group do you have? Which Which group do you fit into? So this is important, this is important. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the understanding? I mean

00:16:51--> 00:17:29

and then we went into further verses about how use of it he said I'm highlighted to them his identity and then he beautifully invited them to Allah subhanho wa Taala and went through some of the features of the hour that's why I really really encourage you to watch yesterday's episode if you really want to a one hour summarize in fact not at one hour because the first 12 minutes was on data to cover and the last 10 nights of Ramadan if you want to 45 minutes quick recap masterclass of of the SLE of the of the hour honestly any in terms of how to deal with Musa def the person who you intend how to grab their attention, how to keep them with you how to prioritize what to say when to

00:17:29--> 00:17:38

say how to say how to address them, how to keep their folk all of the Subhanallah yesterday we tapped into it clear inshallah.

00:17:39--> 00:17:47

Use of Allah he Salam then goes on to interpret the dream for them. He's given them what they needed.

00:17:48--> 00:17:50

So now he's going to give them what they want.

00:17:52--> 00:18:30

So people are thinking, what is the what am I saying? That was yesterday's lesson. If you snooze, you lose, you have to go back to the lesson. So inshallah listen to this lesson, then go to yesterday's lesson, and it'll make sense. He's given them what they needed. And he now promised them and you put passions upon their promise, he promised them before the meal comes, I will tell you about your dream, he tells them about their dream, he interprets the dream. And he says to one of them, that as for one of you, you will be freed from here and you will be given a post in the palace of the king you will be a waiter you will be serving the drinks the wine of the king in his palace.

00:18:30--> 00:18:35

As for the other one you will be destined to quote unquote the death penalty

00:18:37--> 00:19:13

that's what's gonna happen. Your dream about you carrying bread over your head and birds pecking at that bread. The interpretation of it is that you will be executed then use of Allah he Salam say something Subhanallah that shows he's he's you he has executive listen to him. He's not just a beautiful face and or the beautiful image and beautiful character. And some people misinterpret a beautiful character for being soft for being weak. No use of has ultimately beautiful character. When it's time to be stern he can be stand and we see it here and we'll see it again. Very soon. When his brothers come to him in sha Allah, Allah gives us life during the upcoming nights we'll

00:19:13--> 00:19:21

discuss the other place where he is then he says to them immediately could be a levy fee he testified here.

00:19:22--> 00:19:39

This matter that you're asking me about is decreed harmless, no more discussion. Now it is sometimes you tell someone you see you gonna get the death penalty. No, but are you mistaken? Are you sure? No, but you know, I might have seen this somebody might try and change the dream, some

00:19:41--> 00:19:49

no time wasting. And this shows you how Subhanallah you can deduce from this. How precise use of was worth his time management.

00:19:52--> 00:19:57

He kept them and gave them the time that was needed. Once the matter was done. It's that I have other important things to do.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

Could be an umbrella TV

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

testify there's no point in engaging me in this discussion further. Because what you're asking about has been decreed by who by the Lord, why worship by the one who I told you in law, the one who I told you about that is there is no hokum except for Allah's there is no legislation except for Allah's legislation. Right. And then he says, What to them after that, he says that the command a letter layer, the command is not to worship anyone but when Allah so don't waste your time in conversation, go worship on Allah Aslim become a Muslim could be a llama. So over any discussion now is a waste of my time and a waste of your time. This is sternness This is not harshness,

00:20:41--> 00:20:49

subhanAllah, some of us forget, we, especially in this day and age, and I've said the citation before where we have emergency rooms filled with people with paper cuts.

00:20:51--> 00:20:52

If you've got a fragile,

00:20:53--> 00:20:54

any little thing

00:20:56--> 00:21:09

he's offended me, she's offended me. I have mental stress, mental health because of this person because of the circumstance. And it's like we filling the emergency room with people that people can see it people can put a plaster and carry on.

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

Carry on.

00:21:13--> 00:21:33

We're not belittling the presence of mental health, mental health is real. But there's some people Subhanallah it's a paper cut. Yeah, and you you weakening your robustness your endurance to a level that Subhanallah you will causing yourself to de capacitate you don't have the ability to face life you don't have the ability to bring value to life.

00:21:37--> 00:22:11

This is sternness not harsh or somebody will say no, you can't be harsh you you do this to say these harsh colors are no more going to speak to him. I lost my respect for him. I lost my respect for her brother, sister. This is not harshness, this is sternness. In life. There's a time for kindness. And there's a time for stillness. There's a time for advice. And there's a time there's a time for being prescriptive. Sometimes you have to be prescriptive. You can't just advise people sometimes you have to tell them listen, do this in this way at this time, like when the doctor gives you medicine. This is a prescription you have to take it but your multivitamins suggested

00:22:14--> 00:22:29

it's a suggestion one capsule a day with meals preferred recommended now when you get a prescription from a doctor you don't see recommended they take one dose three times a day preferably with meals okay, this is recommended

00:22:31--> 00:22:37

so there's there's prescription and then there's advice. But there is Subhanallah you be a little bit prescriptive and people start

00:22:38--> 00:22:56

losing trust in you and they start distancing themselves from you and this is a problem this is a problem and my dear brothers and sisters it's not my hope this is not the case in Australia but it is getting to the stage whereby Subhanallah you can't even advise the closest people to you closest people to you you can't advise them

00:22:57--> 00:23:18

because you fear them shadow banning you know what shadow banning is Shadow banning those who do social media you know what shadow banning is when the platform shadow ban you know some people shadow ban as well where they ban you without you knowing there's no notification there's no discussion there is no meeting there is no message there's nothing

00:23:20--> 00:23:47

all you all you can see is there's no invite when you message them there's no reply when or they might be in a group some people do this leave the group and again this is the level of maturity Subhanallah any we show our frustration by leaving the group and then everyone was run behind us and say come back to the group rather come back to the group sister he left the group at hamdulillah Salam have as you leave the group and make life productive and you guys in the group maybe you should leave the group as well.

00:23:48--> 00:23:59

Because clearly the maturity level isn't there in terms you guys are laughing because you live in Utah Allah may Allah forgive us here we see this we see this

00:24:01--> 00:24:03

winter Milan came they were this WhatsApp

00:24:04--> 00:24:10

messages going around it's what do they call them? Like a sticker? Hey Shavon left the group

00:24:15--> 00:24:17

people like create a VIP

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

group because it's changed now.

00:24:25--> 00:24:29

You're lucky if you all smiling and laughing and Allah's obedience

00:24:34--> 00:24:46

Allah forgive us we need to build our mental maturity, our ability to interact with each other we need to build our maturity there. We need to Dr. papercut syndrome er, May Allah save us Yusuf alayhi salam is being stirred here

00:24:48--> 00:24:57

could be a number. It's not gonna help me it's not gonna help you Masaba to the effect whatsoever. You know what you have to do? Go do it. I have other things to do.

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

Then Allah

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

As us the use of Alayhis Salam.

00:25:03--> 00:25:18

And this could be one of the reasons why he was prescriptive because Yusuf alayhi salam teaches the Ummah a very great lesson here, the lesson of the worker and the work cool, entailing taking the means.

00:25:23--> 00:25:31

This could be one of the reasons why use was prescriptive with this person called the El Amarula de hitTest FDNY, I have no time for you now I need to speak to this person who is going to be freed.

00:25:33--> 00:25:37

Use of sword the person being freed as a means

00:25:40--> 00:26:16

to what good is putting your trust in Allah, but also tying your karma. This is important to understand, because some people misinterpret user's actions here. And I'll tell you how Allah subhanho wa Taala says, wakad Allah the Vandana who led you mean homebirth Curonian robic that use of said to the one of one now wonder here means you're keen, he knew not not he was in doubt, although then in the Arabic language commonly is used to denote a person having a doubt meaning I thought, right, when you when you, when you when you quote unquote, thought, meaning you are not 100% Sure, but one in the Arabic language can also come with the meaning of certainty. And we see

00:26:16--> 00:26:34

that here. Because Yusuf interpreted the dream, he was certain who taught him how to interpret the dream Allah, so he was certain that this person would be freed. But Allah uses the term one here to teach us that one can also come with the meaning of certainty, are definitely 100 out of 100. But one is, were you confident? Are

00:26:35--> 00:26:42

you confident that something is going to be like this, right? For example, I'm confident that the water in this bottle is pure.

00:26:44--> 00:27:20

Right? You can't be 100% Sure, but you feel like you're 100% sure your confidence is so high, you feel like you're 100% Sure, you'll be 100% sure when you drink it and everything is safe. Right. So then has comes with this meaning as well, the meaning of having a confirmed thought, as confirmed for meaning something that is as good as 100% use of knew that this person would be free. So use a fighter he said I'm took the means Remember, use of came into prison, feeling that there's a good chance that my reputation is being spoiled in the land.

00:27:22--> 00:27:23

And no one knows about me here.

00:27:25--> 00:27:50

No one knows about me here. So he says to this person leaving the present with Cordonnier in the Arabic mentioned me now use of interpret the dream, right? He knew that this person is going to pour wine in a very senior officials Palace, someone who has an official senior posting in the land, this person is going to be employed by him, correct us if he sang to him, mentioned me to him.

00:27:51--> 00:28:32

Now if you interact with this, you get you could get the impression that use of has expressed to him that he not the details, not the details because you survived Walla Walla Walla, Allah. But Allah doesn't tell us here and later on Yusuf will give details of what happened in with the women. But right now, Allah Who ilm, we don't get this mineral Quran, from the apparent nature of the verses that Yusuf has told him what happened to him, but use of in the least, we deduce from this has told him that I'm an innocent person jailed, so mention to the person who assumes you in his palace, that an innocent person is in jail. Okay.

00:28:34--> 00:28:40

Okay. Now, Rob, remember we said in Arabic language could mean Allah subhanahu etalon could mean your,

00:28:42--> 00:28:58

your master, like Rob was used in one of the tough series to describe the minister of Egypt, one minister who bought us from from from the slave market. So here, Rob would mean the king or the minister, whoever is going to this official of a very senior posting, who is going to

00:29:00--> 00:29:29

take you into His Paris, mentioned my innocence to him. Now, Allah says after for answer who che upon with the Quran, that che PA and made him forget for elaborative decision with Ursini so as a result use have remained in prison for several years better means something up to 10 something up to 10 from between three and 10. And some scholars have opined that it was around seven years around seven years extra so what another tests on Allah that he went through,

00:29:31--> 00:29:37

put this into memory plus, because someone who's been tested like this, or how will the relationship be with Allah?

00:29:38--> 00:29:49

A normal person but not a person of beautiful Eman like use of Allah his center, and inshallah we'll touch it when we get we'll touch on this when we get to the discussion of how use have interpreted the dream of the king.

00:29:50--> 00:29:55

Now some have said that Yusuf was kept in the prison

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

for this period because

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

If he didn't ask Allah for help, he asked this person for help.

00:30:05--> 00:30:09

So Allah says for Ansel who che upon vichara be

00:30:10--> 00:30:20

the shaper and made us who forget to remember Allah and as a result use have stayed in the prison for these seven audience. This is one explanation.

00:30:22--> 00:30:23

The other tafsir is

00:30:24--> 00:30:48

for answer who shape on the pronoun fine sir, who this pronoun refers to this man who was going to be freed che PA and made him forget use request. And as such use of the request was not completed with the king. And as a result, no one knew about use of in the prison, and as a result use have remained in the prison until the kingdom saw the dream, which was seven or eight years later.

00:30:50--> 00:31:04

This second tafsir is Allahu Allah, the strongest of secret? Why? Because if we look into the Quran, we see Subhanallah that whenever a prophet made a mistake, Allah always mentioned to us them asking Allah for forgiveness.

00:31:05--> 00:31:26

When you had a Salem made a mistake, and asked Allah about his son, and said he's from my family, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala said in the holy semiotic in the hormonal vital sign, he's not from your family, his actions were not righteous finatus ld Valley selectably Hear him Do not speak to me about which you have no knowledge about.

00:31:28--> 00:31:30

Right and you've been warned from being from the ignorant.

00:31:31--> 00:31:55

What did you do straightaway? Allah tells us in the Quran, he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala for forgiveness, Adam Allah He said, Allah tells us that he asked Allah subhana wa Taala for forgiveness, Adam and Hawa our mother and father have been vulnerable. And husana oil into Finland, our Hamlin and Aquila, in the middle ha serene. That page of swords a lot of in some of us I have second page and of the second page.

00:31:56--> 00:32:01

Allah tells us this dua of our parents, they sought forgiveness.

00:32:03--> 00:32:04

And we see this in the Quran.

00:32:05--> 00:32:30

Eunice alayhi salam, when he lost hope in these people and left his people after Allah told him not to leave, meaning he that Allah never permitted him to leave. But when he saw them not listening to his call, and he remembered the punishment of law. He just went in said I'm leaving you I'm not going to be him and Allah's punishment comes. So he was solid by oil. When he was in the oil, Allah tells us he What did he say? The nude, you know universally, he said, you will notice.

00:32:31--> 00:33:03

Allah tells us when he was with blue mat in the darkness of the world stomach, in the darkness of the ocean, in the darkness of the night and illuminate him death. He was covered by three darknesses and Allah says when he called out to Allah and he said La ilaha illa Anta super Han okay in the continental Valley mean, there is no authority of worship besides you, glory be to you indeed and from the oppressors. So Allah subhanho wa Taala forgave him, preserved him, protected him saved him. Where in the Quran do we see Allah telling us that use of ask for forgiveness?

00:33:05--> 00:33:06

We don't see it

00:33:07--> 00:33:17

which makes this tafsir weak because use of as a prophet if this mistake happened Allah would have shown us use of Allah He said I'm asking for forgiveness that's number one. Number two

00:33:19--> 00:33:23

if use of forgot does Allah hold us accountable for forgetting

00:33:26--> 00:33:35

he forgot for answer who shared Allah is telling us that shaper and made him forget it's human nature to forget how can we forget and then punished for forgetting

00:33:37--> 00:34:07

so the stronger tafsir is that the one who forgot was the fried man he forgot to mention use of to his to the king and as a result use of situation remained unknown and use have remained in the present for many many years now. We traveling truth through chapters really quickly and one minute you in the home of Iacob next minute you in the chapter of the abduction next minute the third abduction next minute use of in Egypt next minute he's locked up with the woman and then he's

00:34:10--> 00:34:41

tested with the women of the city. Then we have another chapter use of in the prison Subhanallah each chapter is amazing. Chapter Chapter Chapter Chapter you can break two sort of use of it into these chapters and you can deduce all the benefits it's Pamela amazing. I mean look at the chapter of the prison what a lesson that will masterclass chapter in the prison that will masterclass chapter in the locked up in the room with the minister's wife and then being tested by the women of the city Eman masterclass.

00:34:43--> 00:34:46

Chapter growing up in the minister's home,

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

how to be a phenomenal child's master class because he lived in that home for 33 decades upon what his father taught him before he was abducted from his own when he was a kid, how to hold true to those values.

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

And it's how to be a child masterclass right. Chapter in the home of his father.

00:35:06--> 00:35:28

Parenting masterclass we discuss this prophetic parenting right when he's abducted by his brothers sibling masterclass how relationships shouldn't be between siblings and how to manage things if things go wrong. We see this from use of Allah he Salam and we will see this when they meet how he deals with them simply masterclass. Subhan Allah, then now we're going to see Subhanallah another masterclass when people

00:35:30--> 00:35:31

seek advice from you.

00:35:33--> 00:35:50

Community masterclass, social masterclass. Subhan, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he's in control of everything. He brings this hair to use of alayhi salam, how, by making the qingsiya dream Subhanallah Yusuf alayhi salam, the story of use of as the dreams, the dream and in the era.

00:35:52--> 00:35:53

We see this at the beginning.

00:35:55--> 00:36:28

And he says in the array too. I saw the sun the moon 11 stars. Now he's in the present day saying and he Ara how they think we see in our dream. Now the king has a dream. Allah says we're Carl Maluku in the era, the king is telling his royal God he's the one closest to him. I see in a dream to hunt Allah. Yusuf alayhi salam is the story and sort of dreams and perhaps maybe tomorrow we can summarize the topic of dreams inshallah. Okay, we will do that with the lighter Allah.

00:36:29--> 00:37:08

I guess it was supposed to happen. But then I traveled either to Brisbane or to Sydney, it was the Brisbane travel that caused us to, to Subhanallah misstating that lesson insha Allah Tomorrow we will go through Bismillah to Allah before we start the session, because the Sharia has a lot of knowledge about dreams from an Islamic perspective. Allah subhanho wa Taala is bringing a great trial to the globe, and particularly the land of Egypt and the land of Palestine. What is this trial? There's going to be seven years of rainfall, followed by seven years of drought, severe drought, nothing will grow in the seven years. How does Allah make this known to man through the

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


00:37:10--> 00:37:40

This king has a dream. He says to his royal court, I see in my dream Subhanallah I see something strange. I see seven fat cows being consumed by 710 cows. This doesn't make sense. And then to add insult to injury, I see seven green fresh, healthy crops being consumed by seven wilted stems of crop.

00:37:45--> 00:37:52

So he says these people, yeah, you will Mela, my advisers, my people, my royal court, have to levy

00:37:54--> 00:37:55

explain to me my dream.

00:37:57--> 00:38:07

Make sense of my dream. If you are indeed people who interpret dreams. Now, this shows gives an idea that during this era Subhanallah Dreams was the thing.

00:38:08--> 00:38:12

And Allah sends His prophets with the miracle of being able to precisely interpret dreams.

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

At the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Arabic language was their thing. Allah says the miraculous Quran in the Arabic language designed in Arabi movie

00:38:24--> 00:38:27

at the time of Musa magic and these kind of

00:38:29--> 00:38:30


00:38:32--> 00:38:43

practices was the thing. Allah says Musa with the stick with the stick that turned into a snake and his hand and his armpit that shone so bright, so brightly.

00:38:44--> 00:38:54

Musa recently he Salem medicine was the thing. And Allah says Lisa, with the ability to heal the leper, give life to something dead with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:38:56--> 00:39:04

everything is massive, everything is suitable. Nothing is just practice without division. Allah is totally above that.

00:39:06--> 00:39:29

So what do these people do? Similar to what we do when we don't know something and we don't want to be seen to be people who don't know we just come up with some we try to brush it away. Brush it to the side. Make nothing of it. It's not important. They say to the king of the Lamb. What is it Vasa Helen of Gotha Hallam you know those dreams you have when you had the heavy Denia

00:39:30--> 00:39:34

you have a heavy dinner sometimes you go sleep you start seeing weird things in your CPI

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


00:39:37--> 00:39:42

Yeah, you know what, don't eat too. Don't don't eat those steaks so late at night.

00:39:44--> 00:39:48

You know, they're digesting now in your mind using things. So they said

00:39:49--> 00:39:55

they say this is just from you know, those, you know, your mind playing tricks on you don't give it importance.

00:39:56--> 00:39:57

Don't give it importance

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

but Subhanallah this

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

Samba cutter because Allah sets the scene. It so happens as this discussion is happening. This wine Porter is present in the room.

00:40:09--> 00:40:17

Remember we said Allah's Mercy is always near when you being tested? You have to know Allah's Mercy is Nia

00:40:18--> 00:40:27

when the brothers were planning to kill use of did Allah Allah inspire one of them to say don't kill him but throw him into a well? Isn't that Allah's mercy? That's mercy.

00:40:28--> 00:40:33

See use of he doesn't know this, but he believes Allah's Mercy is me and my situation could be worse.

00:40:34--> 00:40:44

When he was in the slave, and people were being slapped around and treated like animals, and ALLAH inspires the Minister to be then to have the sixth sense to see him and say, I want that guy.

00:40:46--> 00:41:08

Isn't that Allah's mercy? He could have been chosen by some other tyrant and beaten and lashed every day of his life. The test could have been much worse. But this guy says a creamy mouth will make you stay comfortable, no lashing, no beating, no scolding. Maybe we can even take him as a son if we played the cards right? Isn't this the mercy from Allah? mercy from Allah. Look at Allah's mercy upon us if you somewhere else in the prison

00:41:09--> 00:41:26

that Allah's Mercy is close to those who do good in Rahmatullah Hikari mean advice any, Allah's Rama is Caribbean near to the monsoon to those who do good us lives in the prison and ALLAH inspires this dream to happen in this discussion to happen with the wine poor are present. I mean, what are the odds, guys?

00:41:28--> 00:42:02

If we put this, you know, stuff that Allah we're not saying, we're not trying to justify or give any credence to betting. But you know, this go, mathematically speaking? What are the odds that this happens in this way, that the king has a dream, and then instead of speaking to a person, he chooses to speak to the people together, and when he speaks to the people together, the wine person is there, all these three have to meet for this to be effective. And then when the wine Porter is there, he's not daydreaming, he's not thinking about something else, but he's involved himself in the discussion. There's another odd.

00:42:04--> 00:42:05

Allah says

00:42:06--> 00:42:31

that, after these people belittle the dream, and they said, We don't interpret, you know, the tricks that the mind plays on you when you sleep, this is not our thing. We are dream interpreters. We are not these, you know, have a real dream, King and we will interpret it for you. But as for this, this is Abdullah Acaba, Allah means like we said, the tricks that the mind plays on you, you know, it's something you need to discard and forget about it.

00:42:33--> 00:42:35

Allah says Wakanda lady in a German humor,

00:42:36--> 00:42:59

and this from the eloquence of the Quran just takes us forward. It doesn't tell us the man who was there and how he was pouring and what was he wearing? And how many of you have a tray didn't have a tray, was he? How did he, Allah just takes us fast forward, you can put you can this from the eloquence of the Quran, you can piece it together. Allah says the man who was saved from the prison who use have interpreted his dream to be the one who will be saved. He spoke up and said,

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

I now own a big computer really here for rasool Allah Subhana Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us what Dukkha the OMA Subhanallah with Dukkha the Ummah Yanni OMA a period of time, with DEKRA by the meaning he remembered after Subhanallah that time, and this verse is further evidence of the tafseer that we chose in the other verse, that it was in use of who forgot but this person who forgot because Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us that now he remembered, shaper made him forget and now Allah made him remember through this circumstance Subhan Allah, he's remembered that hold on, I lived in a situation where this person interpreted my dream and it was spot on.

00:43:42--> 00:43:51

He tells the king for a saloon what as far as you don't mean meaning for a silly meaning send me some people are opportunists.

00:43:52--> 00:44:02

I mean, I have the opportunity now to get a promotion sort of being a wind Porter if I get the dream the king's dream interpreted. You know what? And guess what? I know a guy

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

you know how it is. I know a guy

00:44:06--> 00:44:13

I have a contact I know a guy though straight and say this a lot. Whenever I come here I hear his say Brother, you know, I know a guy.

00:44:14--> 00:44:46

It's true, isn't it? You hear this hear a lot or shall lights from the B. Should we say big Australian? colloquial. Mashallah. manifestations. I know a guy, especially in Sydney, I hear it a lot. Is it common in Melbourne, as well? Yeah, more in Sydney. And there you go. You see, I can also piece it together. Yeah, it'll send me to tell someone something and we need to go. I know a guy I know a guy. So this guy is saying I know a guy. Right? And obviously, he's being an opportunist. He's saying send me

00:44:47--> 00:44:50

Listen, just send me I'll sort this out for you king.

00:44:53--> 00:44:55

Allah takes a straightaway back to the prison.

00:44:56--> 00:45:00

But how he went there? Did he go by car? Was there traffic was there no traffic

00:45:00--> 00:45:22

Start important. This is why the Quranic studies are the best. It doesn't waste anybody's time. You also for a university, the conversation is happening. He's going through the prison. He's going through the security he signed in, he's checking whatever protocols they had. He's sitting with us if you can, nowadays you imagine phone phono it wasn't like that then Hola. Hola Anna, they were talking to each other. He speaks to us if as if he's his buddy

00:45:24--> 00:45:29

he forgot about me it shloka and it was your situation where did you come from?

00:45:31--> 00:45:56

Where do you come from? Sorry to the guys in the camera. We have some people to speak Arabic here we have some salsa with these we have some Arabs. Sometimes I let myself go. Allah bless you all, like I said from the from the adverb of Tao is to speak to the people here before this people on the camera. I apologize. I have to apologize. Because yesterday when I was listening back to that listening back to the session, I noticed I said some error because I didn't translate it. But in sha Allah through context, you guys got it.

00:45:57--> 00:46:22

But you get the point. Someone who you helped. And you asked him for one request. And yours are gone by imagine it's seven years. You haven't seen this guy. People's faces change in seven years. Right? people's identities you feel like have has changed. No identity shouldn't change. I don't mean identity. But in in that sense of people's demeanors people's personality traits. A lot happens in seven years.

00:46:23--> 00:46:30

And this person just comes and says use of use of a Hasidic. Athena, interpret this dream for me.

00:46:32--> 00:46:34

King had a dream. We need you to interpret the dream.

00:46:36--> 00:46:44

Now let's be honest guys, let's be honest. Kenny 21st night of Ramadan don't spoil your bed. What would you do?

00:46:52--> 00:47:00

Insha Allah doesn't happen because 21st Night will not be punching people in the face. Yeah, my issues are not allowed. But of course I understand what you're saying. What would you do? Have you been?

00:47:02--> 00:47:03

We do i Where do we know each other from which buddy which siddik heavy Who are you Hasidic meanings, idiot here meaning a truthful one.

00:47:16--> 00:47:22

And, and also truthful one meaning, you say that to someone who you also feel the closest to, and you appreciate them.

00:47:23--> 00:47:34

See the truthful one. So he's praising Yusuf Alayhi Salam. And he's presenting himself as an acquaintance. Au Hasidic ally, we go back

00:47:35--> 00:47:50

when we've done things together, man, you know, we traveled together we remember when our teens how the Shabaab talked about the stalker, you know, back then we still have game you know, in amongst amongst that.

00:47:52--> 00:47:55

It just doesn't suit suit me this feature doesn't suit you guys.

00:47:58--> 00:48:02

Use of it. He said I'm Subhanallah He manifests his amazing character again.

00:48:03--> 00:48:22

He listens carefully to what this person says. Athena, please explain to us give us the interpretation of this dream whereby the seven cows and 710 Cows seven healthy crops and seven crops and the thin is devouring the fat the thin is devouring the healthy and then he says to him

00:48:25--> 00:48:32

literally urge your illness. So you know if you do it, I can go back to the people and they can they can know what's happening.

00:48:34--> 00:48:34


00:48:36--> 00:48:41

I mean, to be honest, I thought about this. I mean it wouldn't even be you wouldn't say

00:48:42--> 00:48:50

yeah, and he wouldn't take away from use of either he Salah if use of at this stage said to him locally. I interpret the dream.

00:48:51--> 00:48:53

But first, please

00:48:54--> 00:49:11

I shared with you a request seven years ago no problem you know you forgot still problem. No hard feelings. Right? But you know, please you know who you Who are you working for now the king go to the king? I just tell him that there's a innocent person here. Would would that take anything away from you so funny, Sarah, do you think

00:49:13--> 00:49:27

that this shows you Subhan Allah how his trust was in Allah Allah and this is another sign about our Topsy accusing that second half sin was that was the right one that use made no error. He didn't forget Allah. It was this man who forgot us

00:49:28--> 00:49:32

because what use of is not even talking about what happened before

00:49:36--> 00:49:59

what use of did was Helen was Mysuru he was taking the meds the Sharia tells us lock your door and put your trust in Allah for your seatbelt put your trust in Allah switch on your alarm put your trust in Allah this is from Taco take the means but understand this Hola. Above the means use of took the means and recognize that Allah's plan is Allah's plan. This means he didn't work for him. I don't have any issues with this guy. When do you

00:50:00--> 00:50:35

You look beyond that the person beyond their mistake beyond the weakness, when you truly understand that you do not associate partners with Allah min che, we spoke about this yesterday, many che meaning in the minutus form, I don't associate partners with Allah. It's what Allah who is in control, this person forgot because Allah has a plan for me, I'm not going to hold him accountable. And this is something we need to dismantle May Allah forgive me, I'm thinking of the time Subhanallah where, you know, we've had to maybe become quote unquote prescriptive because someone didn't do what they were supposed to. Now I'm not saying I mean that, you know, every time someone

00:50:35--> 00:50:41

doesn't do what they're supposed to that it's a this is a a green license, you know,

00:50:42--> 00:50:44

to cancel out you know, the

00:50:45--> 00:51:21

the quantification of any consequences and so on and so forth. No, because if you're running an organization it can't run without people doing what they have to do. But this was a personal favor. Right? Especially the favor and the person forgot use of you can see use of do not sit for all these years depressed. He did not sit for all these years saying when I get out and I find this guy, when this guy came, you should immediately say Scarlett is around as a vaccine in a database.

every time I teach this course, people say we're going to name our child use of, and many people have named the child's use of because Wallahi

00:51:48--> 00:51:53

00:51:54--> 00:52:14

use of it he Salem shows you His Arcada was intact, his relationship with Allah was intact. He doesn't engage this person in any introductory speech. Immediately, he answers the request of this person. And guess what, he doesn't interpret the dream, only.

00:52:15--> 00:52:16

He gives him the solutions.

00:52:20--> 00:52:22

This is the guy you want on your team.

00:52:24--> 00:52:26

You know, when you say I know a guy, this is the guy.

00:52:28--> 00:52:51

This is the person you want on your team. And you're not he he's not the person who brings problems. He brings solutions. Use of not only interprets the dreams, he tells this person, the solution, this is what you're going to do, you're going to have seven years of rain, when the rain comes, you're going to plant and you're going to increase the harvest. And when you increase the harvest, you're going to keep the food of that harvest safe.

and then after that, there's going to be seven years of drought and you're going to eat from the storages that you have from the seven years of rainfall.

00:53:08--> 00:53:18

And before the storage is finished, if you manage it well there'll be years after that, we abundant rainfall will fall and people will eat and people will have juice and they will drink and so on and so forth.

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