Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Karim Allah Allah Allah. He was a big Marine
arbitragefreie Saudi westerly, everyone who looked at me Lisa, any of our Kali, we begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa taala. We praise Him we seek his assistance and we seek His guidance and we seek refuge in him from the evil of ourselves and the adverse consequences of our deeds. We testify that Whomsoever He guides, none can misguide. And whomsoever He misguided and can guide and we request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
To my brothers and sisters in Islam salam ala Alikum warahmatu Hua baraka to me unless peace may His blessings may safety may His mercy be upon you all and us all. Will talk about alarming now women come Salah reminded me of hundreds except our deeds. I mean, we have commenced with the 22nd night of Ramadan yet another night from the final 10 of Ramadan. And
even if it's not decreed to be the Night of Power and decree and virtually little other, it doesn't take away from the fact that this night is
from be set off nights that constitutes the best nights of the entire year. The last 10 nights of Ramadan are the best nights of the entire year. And one of these nights houses the greatest night of the entire year. Okay. So that is why irrespective of
our circumstances, our situations whether it's an odd night, whether it's an even night, we should respect the night by giving it its due, especially since without doubt it is from the greatest nights of the year. Allah subhanho wa Taala created all the nights of the year, and he raised 10 nights in rank. And these are the nights that we are in. And then from these nights he raised one night in rank. And that's the night that we're searching for. If it was last night, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those that witnessed it. I mean, and if it's tonight, then we ask Allah to accept our mohareb and our Asia and our iba in between and our true wish. And we ask
Allah to inspire us to more worship throughout this night to grant us the strength to grant us the Ilham the inspiration and the guidance in the Tofik to worship Him. And if it isn't the knights to come, then we ask Allah to preserve us in His obedience and grant us the strength to seek out the night. I mean, you're behind. I mean, we're continuing with our journey through Surah Yusuf and yesterday, we sort of reached a transition phase, because finally use of Allah he salaam circumstance and situation
has been flagged outside of the prison. And not just in any quarter, but the greatest of quarters, the palace of the king, the highest authority of the land. And we spoke about the inmates of the prison. And we went into some of the theory some of the tafsir about who forgot did use of forget the inmate forget, we discussed the theory of the verse, Allah subhanahu two addresses and Sir Who che upon with the Krabi. We discuss that, and we deduce from that some lessons. And we analyzed it in some capacity. Although I'm trying my best to keep our series together moto Dabura based and not Tafseer based meaning more reflective based, and reflection obviously comes after the top secret. So
not sharing with you the tafsir but you rest assured that the series there others we can ponder over a misunderstanding of any verse in the Quran, but at some points, I do share some of the Tafseer genre of knowledge because it helps us with our tempo and helps us with our reflection. Before that we had two sessions, which I titled Made to Stick and I explained why I titled it that way. It's based on a famous book. And
those two episodes was dedicated to a Dawa masterclass, dedicated to use of Allahi salaams application in the prison and I'm not trying to pitch my YouTube channel, but I do insist that you do go back to those episodes. And you do watch them I try and upload them nightly. So please do because it is there's there's many lessons if not at least, bookmark it. Save the link to watch after Ramadan. Okay, because truly it was a masterclass and there was so much that could have been said that I didn't say and every time I go back Subhanallah I think of something I say subhanallah I didn't say it is connected to
to the to our masterclass for example, for example, one thing we didn't say that should be said And Alhamdulillah for this continued episodes because we have the ability to do is to the rock we have the ability to capture a sweet little hotter, captured thoughts, thoughts that were missed? Are we able to capture them? One of the things which I didn't tell you about which is also part and parcel
of use of the power to the inmates in the prison uses propagation of Islam propagation of the truth was
Iraq with Tom Wilma alhaja. Actually, this is very important using intellectual arguments in your doubt. It's very important, right? And one of the mechanisms of alleged allegedly these intellectual arguments is to run comparisons and use of it he said I'm does that when he asked them this rhetorical question. I did touch on the on this slightly. We didn't go into it and what the ones that I'm using now, but I did say then that use of it he said, I'm just asking him a question.
seeking an answer that he doesn't know, he knows and what he does, or how he knows Allah, the irresistible, is the best Allah to worship. This is the better way this is the best way. But nonetheless, he still asks them, he says, Above him, whatever the hell he's asking them. And we said that this line of questioning is not a line of questioning whereby you don't know the answer you seeking the answer the line of questioning that is done with someone who has superior knowledge to you. Right? Rather, this is a line of questioning that is done with someone who who has inferior knowledge to you. And the reason why you do this is to be rhetorical. I didn't mention this, that
this is a rhetorical question you're trying to instigate thought. And this is from an agile athlete. This is from the intellectual arguments, this comparison and the Quran does compare, right? The Quran compares between a seeing person and what my estimate I'm our boss the role of the Luma to when a new rule of the law and how to Allah subhanaw taala runs these comparisons in the Quran that he compares between a sin person and a blind person and so on and so forth. He Allah compares between life and death. Allah subhanho wa Taala compares between
light and darkness. Right. This is
this is from the eloquence of the Quran as well, because the Quran is revealed by a Lord who created the human being and blessed him with a fitrah and blessed him with a brain
and accordingly the IATA being revealed and as we said yesterday, and knuckle Asahi, law, your added a lacuna sorry, right. The authentic revelation cannot go against a sound mind. Whenever you have an issue in your mind. You have an issue in your mind with text revelation comes to you and you doubt it you feel no This doesn't make sense. The issue is not with the revelation as long as the revelation is saved, so authentic. The issue is not with Revelation the issue is with your mind. And what does that need from you it needs you to investigate some more. Unfortunately today Subhanallah something doesn't make sense to us. Let him unless we say no there's something wrong with us. Okay,
but it's it's senate is clear cushions It's as clear as the day it's changed the way it's reached us as clear as the day there's no reason for us to doubt this text. But you are basically doubting it because it doesn't make sense to your mind.
So you start belittling the value of the of revelation that has reached
our shack Jaffa Idris, happy to holla shefa a well known chef who shares a local chef Chu mashallah devata Cola, he is well respected in the east and the west,
originally from Sudan, and based in Serbia in rehab for many years, and someone who is very close to Shackleton bears, Rahimullah, and someone who shattered when bears used to call Allah subhanaw taala.
He mentioned a very interesting point about this, this interaction between us and the text, or some people how they interact with text. And he says it's interesting that they interact with this. But if you look at a scientist, for example, if a scientist comes across
something, and it contradicts
his or her mind, his or her understanding, right? What do they do? They don't immediately criticize what has come about as a result of investigation. Rather, they say the matter, meaning their process is in need of further investigation. I hope I'm quoting him right, but you get the point. And he nobody starts doubting science. Do you see the scientist when a conclusion comes about? When a conclusion comes about that goes against your actual? Do you see the scientist doubting it?
Or does the scientists say that there's need for more investigation he doesn't deny deny science
Subhanallah Allah. But when it comes to some people from the old Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam something doesn't make sense with them. And they have this matter of the shower, this matter of this sickness to follow the disease.
is what do they do? They start doing it the ham of tennis, the scientist doesn't do it the ham of science, the science doesn't belittle, the scientist doesn't belittle science, the scientist does not reduce the vigor and value of science. No, he respects science. She respect science. So she says, I need to learn some more. So what about the believer? If you come across something from the Quran and the Sunnah, that is authentic, and it's not making sense to you, the issue is with you, you need to study some more, you need to detox yourself some more, maybe there's too much liberalism floating in your subconscious or adaptive subconscious, it happens to the best of us, our
environments naturally have an impact on us. Right, the environment does have an impact on us. And that's why time and time again, we've highlighted how amazing use of HRM is that he grew up through his teens through his 20s through his 30s, away from the home of his father, with idols with low social morality, et cetera, et cetera, the most formative years of his life grew up in environments that were an Islamic, but Subhanallah we've seen him time and time again, Shine Subhanallah in a way that's pleasing to Allah. When she looked him in the room, he said, My eyes Allah, when the women were a test for him, he said, Rob, be a surgeon who I have been a prison is more beloved to me. And
now he's in the prison. We spoke about it yesterday. He's not going into prison, with the people outside saying, Albemarle and bubbly I need this as a hero is in the prison. It's not one of those ones, where use of using the prison saying no people, no, I'm innocent, and people out there are going to support my cause. And they're going to love me more and and protest from me. Well, no, no, no, no, nobody knows about this, only the women know about it, the minister's wife know about it, and they threw him into prison to avoid the scandal, which means the only thing out there is this reputation that he was a criminal. He was an evil person. But even though this is his case, we see
him in the prison martial law. They say in America, middle Mazzini, we see you from the people who do good Subhanallah that despite all of these tests, he's from those who do good. So
coming back to,
to this point,
we talk about environments, environments have an impact on us. And I've said this to you before, not not maybe in the Surah Yousuf series, but maybe our blast from the past zero of Zero series that we ran in Melbourne and other cities. Previously, we spoke about this, this whole discussion between the scientist and the philosophers, the the scientists say that the human being is a product of nature. And the philosophers have this discussion about the human being, being a product of nature. And the Islamic perspective is that the human being is a product of the fitrah. But the fitrah can be
you know, can be affected by the environment by nurture by how they brought up as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the son of Adam Kowloon, you lead to an ephah trotty, that everyone is born upon his fitrah this natural disposition, this instinctive desire to recognize a super being Allah subhanho wa Taala and Ultimate Creator, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, for Ebola who you have with any he Oh, you know Sarah and you know you Medusa and he that it's the environment, it's the upbringing. It's the system that the fitrah grows up in, that makes this boy or girl, a fire worshiper or a Jew or a Christian
doesn't just make use of it. He's even more amazing that he grew up with idols with no morality, but he was a believer, whatever. Tamila to eBay, Ibrahim, what is hacker or occult, this is what he says, I don't have an identity crisis. nature hasn't had an impact on my fitrah And subhanAllah. That is why Allah subhanahu Allah chose him in the home even a burden and meclizine were in the home in arriba de la si and Cara, Cara McClure seen with Cara meclizine in one rewire in one para, it's meclizine and in a in another one more Colossian. And previously, I collected these two together by highlighting that if you live sincerely for Allah, your fitrah will be protected. Why? It couldn't
listen. Sarita McCullough sang and if you sincere with Allah subhanahu atter Allah, Allah will choose you. And if Allah chooses you canaliculi nursery for and who sue our fascia. Allah says that he Subhana what does he do? He turns away from those who he chooses Sue Well, fascia,
all evil and what immorality
Subhanallah it's all from Allah subhanho wa Taala and so we have to make dua to Allah for Tibet, Robin Allah to Guru Baba they've had eaten our herbal and me Allah
Subhanallah the second page of Surah Nimrod, some Muslims may be the end of the first page, were you making dua to Allah led to save Kulu BANA protect our fitrah protect our hearts don't cause it to go astray. And this should make us realize Subhan Allah, the hola ko at a level that is no power no mighty except from Allah. Everything is from Allah Autofit is from Allah Subhana Allah
and use recognizes the SubhanAllah. That's what he says. Then he come in from the law here, Elena Arlen Ness for the MILA here and in our alumnus, this the birth of this guidance, this Subhanallah steadfastness that I've had throughout my life, despite the circumstances, despite the environment, despite the trials, despite the test, in fact, the villa here Elena is from Allah has further upon us. Allah has further Allah has benevolence over us. SubhanAllah. Right. And we should take from this My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, because we all want guidance for our kids. We want guidance for ourselves, our children, we know what's happening out there. SubhanAllah. Right. It's
very colorful out there, isn't it? Right? It's very colorful. Right? And the lines between the guys are laughing and smiling and
right. Yeah. And he laughed a little bit ishara dfmo As they say that the one who has understanding through the road signs the signposting. You'll understand what what's being said. So it's very colorful out there. And we're all worried about ourselves and we're worried about our children.
But we have to turn to Allah.
The Quran is teaching us time and time again. It's not you ultimately it's Allah.
Well, I can lacking Allah hubba ballyconnell Iman was a Jana who physically will become ACARA highly economical for our Fuzu COVID Surah 300. What does Allah say?
Allah says, well I can Allah have available it is Allah who made Eman beloved to your heart was the Yana who few guru become and beautified it for you in your heart. Well, Kira Haley Kamakura and he made the split hated to you. Well for soup and sending well, well and immorality, we'll see. And then since Salah who made it hated to you, Subhan Allah because Alika you're cool Allah subhanahu Allah to Allah but Allah who use a keema Yasha
with his widow, well, I can Allah user Kima Yasha. Allah says, rather it is Allah who purifies whom He wills.
So ask Allah for purification Allahumma Atilla Fusa Toccoa was a Kia and definitely Romans can tell you our Mona has Analy even in the DUA. We say to Allah purify our enough's ourself, purified and bring it It's taco, we are in the month of taco Subhanallah, we are working on this the understanding. So a ledger and luckily, this is a lesson that we must please revise the previous episodes and make notes about this because it's really a master class A that our master class, it teaches you Subhanallah how to take this idea of Tawheed that you have in your mind and transfer it to the person you're speaking to, in a way that sticks.
This is ultimately what you want. You don't want to share an idea and it goes in one ear and out the other ear.
And to achieve sharing an idea that sticks in the mind of the person that you place the idea in, there's so much that you need to take care of as a day, the environment, the attention span, the freshness of the prefrontal cortex, and so on and so forth. Now we're going to go backwards, so let's not go backwards, go and revise the session insha Allah. Now yesterday, I promised you that we'll talk about dreams and why about dreams, I'm not going to go into too much detail because we've already taken too much time here. But just as a footnote to our discussion,
as they say, any a che will be che le youth correct. And if something is connected to something you can mention it lovers. There's no issue there. And we said that this story of use of it Instagram is connected to dreams, the dream of use of right then the dream now of the people in the prison we discuss two dreams. So there's three dreams, then the dream of the king for dreams. Then the end of the story had that we I am in Kabul. The ending of the story is about the dream as well. Subhanallah dreams, my dearest Brothers and Sisters in Islam and it's also a question that's commonly asked
is something that the Sharia the Sharia of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam recognizes, and in the hadith of Abu Hurayrah which is in Sahih Muslim, he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there are three types of dreams, a righteous dream.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes it as glad tidings from Allah.
And the dream which causes stress and sadness.
You wake up in the morning, and you feel Subhanallah stressed about what you saw. Sometimes you wake up and your heart is beating. And you feel like you're out of breath it can happen.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described this as sadness that Shavon brings to a believer or to a person in the sleep state. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and dreams that you see which are from the ramblings of the mind, remember we we shed a light point yummy, you know, the other night when we said sometimes you have your dinner is too heavier. You ate too much
HealthEquity run for it Asha. And sometimes it happens, right? You ate too much. So you start seeing things finding things in your in your Allahu Alem as the people around them the king when the king said I saw seven fat cows being beaten by 7000 cows and seven healthy green fresh crops being consumed by seven brown dying wilted crops. They said Allah clam is that this is just from the ramblings of the mind.
So sometimes we see this, you see this, and many people ask about this. But point number one here we see my dear brother and sister in Islam, that
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us that the Sharia recognizes dreams and categorizes dreams in three categories, as we see in the hadith of obovata that I just shared with you, good dreams, sad dreams and ramblings of the mind. Okay. But also Yanni connected to this is this is the discussion of the dreams of the prophets of Allah.
Allah He was salat wa salam, the dreams of the prophets of Allah. Allahu wa Salatu was Salam. These are not just dreams, these are revelation. Their dreams can also be washed, it can also be watching I'm in Revelation, right? Direct communication between Allah subhanho wa Taala and his messengers like Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Surah Surah and it is not for any human being that Allah should speak to him, except via Allah except via revelation. Oh Min What are a hijab?
Right I accept through revelation or from behind the veil.
And then the Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals all that Allah subhanho wa Taala sends a messenger who reveals meaning an angel who reveals to the messenger that which Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed and this happens with the permission of Allah subhanahu atter IRA, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala says Indeed he is most high and wise, right this is ayah number 51. In
in Surah Surah Now,
so the dreams of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Revelation, the dreams of Gambia Allahi wa salam salat wa salam revelation, and where do we see this as an example in the Quran? A prophet who had a dream and it was ye who can share with me an idea? Yes. Ibraheem Alehissalaam I sent and we will discuss Ibrahim or you will learn about Ibrahim in the weeks to come. The way days are flying very soon it will be the hedger Subhan Allah Subhan Allah La ilaha illa Allah is it was the end of June this year in terms of the English the English calendar, yeah, Subhan Allah. So
Ibrahim Ibrahim alayhi salam, he says in his dream that he is sacrificing his son and some of ores. Some of the analysis of the evidence is pertaining to Ibrahim give the impression that he saw this during the days of the hijab. And it was recurring in the era Philomena, I'm dreaming that I'm slaughtering you. It was during the days of the hijab, and then your attire where he pointed over through your waiter we attend to materia they say yo matawa is known as Yom at Tarawa, because the people doing Hajj would fill their water skins and make their candles drink to their Fill and Fill the water they will need for Mina and Arafa and was deliver voodoo and cooking and so on and so
forth. This is from the meanings of Tarawa, but also tarraleah, referring to the process of playing something over and over again in your mind contemplating it.
And tomorrow, we are shaping and you constantly thinking about it.
So this is some of the explanations of our scholars of Islam. That is called Yom Teruah. Because of Abraham's constant contemplation. Well, Yo Ma Raha it called the RFI, no doubt because you stand on Arafa but some have said your Arafa because RFI is the de Arafa Ibrahim
balule Roja that Ibrahim understood that this dream is not just a dream, but it's revelation. Out of a he knew
in Arabic language, the root letters is raw and denote knowledge. Marisa right. It's connected to the idea of knowledge. Then we have Yeoman now, of the Omarosa Yeoman Mahara is the day that Ibrahim put the knife to the neck of his son.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala replaced it for him because he passed the test cut so Dr. Rukia Subhan Allah, Allah mentioned cancer Dr. Rukia you were truthful to the revelation in your dream meaning it was a revelation the instruction of your of your dream you are true to it Subhanallah But sir, Dr. Allah replaced it worth a ramble for Dana who will depend on him as Allah tells us the sort of stuff that so and we will be doing the odd here, isn't it the judge with the heavy and the odd here if they can, and the rest of the OMA the odd
If they kept
practicing the practice of Ibrahim alayhis salam, so the revelation of the mdrd Homosassa was Salah Saudi the dreams of the Gambia Allahi wa salatu wa salam. These are the dreams of the MBR amo salat wa salam DISA revelation, Santo Emmanuel Buhari reports from Alisha of the Allahu anha that divine revelations began to come to the to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the form of true dreams.
Whenever he had a dream, it would come through like daybreak. So before the meeting of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was he buried in the cave before the event of a cara
before that, four months before that, Allah was preparing his Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
with this connection,
he would give him a dream and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would wake up and what he saw in his dream, it would happen Subhanallah
Subhanallah and sometimes it happens to us it's called deja vu.
Deja vu maybe it's a bit different, but deja vu, hundreds, hundreds we lived through a moment and we say, but Allah I've seen this before. I don't know where are you sitting here? With the white shirt with the black jacket? The red guy with the red next to you or should Allah and
I don't know Subhanallah
but it's the first time it's happening.
Where did you see before in your,
in your dream in your sleep state in your sleep state. So the Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu reports this about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, And subhanAllah
in Sahih Muslim Abu Hurayrah reports that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Now listen to this because this applies to us we always asking about dreams, those of you who are truest
in speech will have
the truest of dreams or to be precise with the narration if we translate it exactly, he says those of you with the truest dreams will be those who are most truthful in speech.
What does this teach us when you're stuck with Lucha?
Who is going to extract from us a benefit from this narration or repeat it? Those of you who are truest in dreams
are those who are truest in in speech
so easy come on guys.
Why don't you
intervene earlier Eric? You from the family of being put on the spot. MashAllah Tamara Coppola.
Always, always truthful and
speaking the truth, always in most cases, so there's a connection to human character.
Yeah, Annie, what we learn here?
Yeah, and it means this means this means that what we learn here is that Subhanallah there's a connection between your character and the dreams that you have
a Siddiq and use of OCD x one Allah and it's amazing. useful for us to do.
Yesterday when the person went back to the prison, and it was to get the king's dream interpreted. How did he address him? Are you Hasidic? Oh, truthful one, and use of could interpret dreams?
Allahu Akbar, honey, this is Iman boosting stuff, don't you think? And he Subhanallah if you can't believe in Allah after even these kinds of these type of evidences that you might call tertiary secondary evidences that Ilaha illa Allah when, when will you have Imam Subhan Allah of the Quran you can see this Quran is from Allah, that you have Allah telling us about this event at the time of use of about dreams and character. And then we have the hadith of Abu Hurayrah from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about dreams and character.
LUFA had him Russa this is the way of the people of iman. We know that they will all send by ALLAH SubhanA who were to add. So it's connected to character. Now someone might say but hold on.
Are you saying that true dreams are specific to believers?
Because this believers they have lied ultimately by denying ALLAH SubhanA who has had my right to disbelievers have dreams that come true
you heard footballer.
Oh, people are virtue.
Come on. The answer is in front of you cuz shrimps. So the use of this king is he a Muslim? Ali, your rasa baccarat till Sema, the one who's seen the seven fat cows and the seven greencroft He's not Muslim, but he's seeing a dream that will come true. So we learn from this that no it doesn't mean that
it doesn't mean that disbelievers won't see through dreams. Allah subhanho wa Taala can show this believer a true dream for a masala for a benefit and wisdom that's known to Allah subhanho wa Taala but generally as a rule there are exceptions, but generally as a rule the truer you are in speech and character, the most sincere you are with Allah, you will see your dreams will be reflective of of that reality. Okay, now
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that dreams are one of 46
parts of prophethood.
Bit of mathematics here, traction, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, dreams are one of 46 parts of Lugu.
How do we explain this? One of 46 I'm sure if I remember quickly, I don't have notes in front of me, by the way on this.
Let me check if there are any.
Because now, anybody who wants to try and explain this, I don't doubt what I've shared with you.
But does Does anyone want to try and make sense of this in some way with
saying that 46 divided by 2333 is the span of the profits mission. Okay. But how does that explain dreams being one part of how
brains prior to his vision
mashallah, you close? You close? Very close? Very good. So, if you look at the mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it was how many years? 23 years? 23? How many months in a year?
12. Okay, so what's 23 times 12? If you say 23 times 12.
divided by six.
Because he had dreams before he became a profit for six months. Do the math. Do the math for us?
Yeah, Jimmy 23 times 12.
By 646. I sent I sent you see his prophetic vision was 23 years as a prophet
Eman, somebody many months did you get
276 and before he became a prophet, he saw dreams that were coming through for how many months, six months. So these six months are one portion of 46 portions of LuBu. That's what he said that he counts those six months where he saw dreams come true. As part of Nobu. It was the preparation for for Naboo Tama. Now, when you see a good dream, it's a dream that makes you happy, correct. It makes you happy. A good dream is of two types. A good dream is a dream that makes you happy. And the first type of good dream is a dream. That's just a good dream. But it won't come true sort of dream that is highlighting to any event. It's a glad tidings
in the sense that you feel calm, you feel pleasant, if you happy, but also you get a good dream, that is a true dream. In it. Symbols through interpretation is connected to an event and inshallah that event will come true. Does that make sense? So your good dreams could either be true dreams or just a good dream. It doesn't mean every good dream you see you need to get it interpreted and something's going to happen. This is number one. Number two,
from the etiquettes of seeing a good dream is to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala because this is from Allah Subhan Allah has benevolence upon you that you had a peaceful restful sleep. Number three, you do not have to get your dreams interpreted. If it's a dream, that has a message that inshallah will come through, even if you don't interpret the dream, it will come true. It doesn't mean the dream will come true unless you go see someone who can move faster than someone who can explain to your dreams doesn't need that.
Number four, dream interpretation is HD hat. It's based on personal reasoning. It's not a Fixed sign somebody can interpret your dream it doesn't mean this is hepco Shamcey I mean it's not like it's you feed the family a teeny it's only give you certain knowledge. Someone interprets your dream, it doesn't mean it's going to give you certain knowledge it's not certain knowledge even the person interpreting is only basing it based on what Allah has opened on them but they don't know for sure. They don't know for for sure. This is very important. Right Dear Brothers and Sisters, it's tough because many people have this thing I have to get interpreted I have to get it interpreted. And the
next point is I don't interpret dreams. So that might as well put it there as part of the five point plan because the messages come in check. I saw this dream. I don't interpret dreams.
Any. I'm not from those who've been blessed with this. But is it something that can be studied? Yes. There's people who don't have the natural ability, but they they, through study, they've achieved it. Because this if you studied the Sunnah well enough if you studied the Quran well enough, he's well versed with the indications of the messaging in the Quran and the Sunnah. Sometimes Allah opens upon your heart over time and training and you sit with the share who's done it over years, you sit with the share, who knows how to interpret over years, you train yourself, you can, you can capture it, but people are motivated, they different in the levels and the abilities to to do so. The next
nowadays, we see this whole idea of, I'll just message someone, I saw this in my dream, and you'll send me an interpretation. It's not a clear cut science like that. Because some of the dream interpreters I've spoken to, they say that if they don't see you in front of them, telling them the dream, then it's difficult for them to interpret the dream with great precision, they can have an idea, but not with great precision. And subhanAllah we see this, this idea that I've learned from them, you see this
in a citation that goes back to even serine even serine was from the tap hearing.
From the righteous from the pious before us, He is known for his abilities with dream interpretation and it is said that once a person came to him and said I saw in my dream that I am performing either
so even sitting said that you you will go for Hajj Insha Allah, it's a sign that inshallah you will go for Hajj. Why because Yanni that's how he interpreted it. Then someone else came to him and said, I saw in my dream I was doing the other
and he says you will go to jail.
You go to jail ah that will you say how does this work? This is how it is. It's not it's not as a fixed science where you can have a book and you can read a book, we have this book and that's why these sides these books that say this is the dream interpretation of this scholar from the this righteous person from our past. Take it with a pinch of salt, take it with a pinch of salt, it could be good for general reading and Itaca for general reading, but it's not great to actually say I'm studying science here. Now when the students asked him that he or she if hedge prison.
It boils down to the person in front of him. He said the first person when I saw him, and he told me his dream about his dream.
I recalled the verse in the Quran was when financeable hedge when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed Ibrahim to announce the hedge. He says when the second person came, which I did remember, for oven and within
a year or two hallelujah.
from Surah USofA. He says when this person came and said, I saw myself doing the Adana, I remember the verse in Surah Yusuf, in which Allah tells us about the announcement made by the gods of the palace, to the people of the caravan to the brothers of users that one of them is a thief, and has stolen so he interpreted as you will do a crime and you'll go to prison. So it also ties down to the person in front of you. I just want to highlight this so we don't busy ourselves Subhanallah with dreams and and one other thing to add, our deen is complete.
Allah is not going to send some new event, some new Ramadan activity, some new special dua to us via the dream of one of us, or some body who society considers very pious or righteous that he didn't give to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what he revealed to Muhammad before he passed away. That's ultimately how Allah wants us to worship him and Yo como to welcome Dena Karim. Allah says, Today I have completed for you religion but I'm there for this verse for my Alhamdulillah for this verse, because it's cutting it certain without doubt, because today many people tell us that so and so he saw in a dream so and so came to him and told him you know what, you need to worship Allah
this way lock yourself in a room, switch off the lights then turn around 10 times and then you will
each other. When you will fall down. Of course anyone yes, if you close the lights and you turn down, you will fall down. It will happen. It will happen.
You get disease and
the point is that the all this that doesn't come from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam stay away from it. The next point is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said bad dreams. Bad dreams are these things that make us carry these dreams you should never get interpreted. And these dreams you should never give it importance. Once a person came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said the I O Messenger of Allah I saw myself in my dream. My head was rolling and I was running after it. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, don't tell us how she played with you last night. And he forget about it.
You see, but when you see a bad dream the Sharia also teaches us etiquettes the Sharia teaches us
When you see a bad dream, then you should
seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala let's say you wake up and you've had a bad dream. You wake up in the middle of the night.
And then you say that hamdulillah it was just a dream or some dreams are so vivid this Oh really? You actually think it's happening you wake up, and it's a surreal experience by What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say he told us in the hadith of Jabba Rhodiola Juan that he should split three times to his left
three times to his left and he should seek refuge with Allah from Shavon three times I will let him in a shaytaan regime or I will do bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim. I will be learning the shape and the meaning three times I will do bIllahi min. Ash shaytaan rhenium seek refuge in Allah from che from the customer.
And then change the side that you are sleeping on and go back to sleep turnover. Okay, now what is put to the side three times me it doesn't mean wet spitting. It means dry spitting. You know what you're
start clearing your throat. Especially if you married my brothers, please. And sisters, please. Because if you start clearing your throat three times, after seeing a bad dream, you will see a battery.
If she is on your left, and you thought you saw a bad dream, you will see a battery for any dilemma Heliconia drives with spitting dry spitting pay. I thought I'd share that just as a precaution because we never know we live in a very as I said colorful AgRP people take information and they do all sorts of things. And they say well, like the chef at the medina told us that how Noah who at a level five also it is recommended recommended as we see in the hadith of Abu Hurayrah to get up make wuzhou of two rockets of Salah recommended, recommended if you can do this, this is better
now and as we said from the Sunnah of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam is to never ever let me never tell other people about your dream. Don't go to people and say last night I saw somebody in a car crash so don't tell anyone about it. The OMA is what is so positive ALMA can be your son Allahu alayhi wa sallam your Hebrew. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to love positivity, positive environments, positive conversations. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam like he said to this man, don't tell us how Chopin played with you. When you were asleep. Don't tell people about it, forget about it, and move on with your day. Because when you tell people about these
dreams that you had, and negatively it might, it might involve them. You might say, Brother, I saw in my last night, you were in a car crash. Now what you what are you going to do to the brother, he's going to be thinking about it the whole day. That's one Hola. You know, and dreams. It doesn't mean you see someone in the dream that it means that person dreams about symbols as you can see in how Yusuf alayhi salam interpreted the dream of the king. As for human cognitive thoughts, like we said, the ramblings of the mind this is you know, something that you can deal with you know, if it's if it's if it's related to your diet, some people I know they eat too late they have these dreams
they eat too much they have these dreams So change your diet, change your eating plants, right? It light at night, go to sleep Hamdulillah you will experience as you know, sleep this this types of activity of REM sleep, and you have an REM sleep, isn't it? Go read about this. We want to make this a lesson on sleeping and the art of sleeping. Allah who start and this is a science now there's books on this, how to sleep.
As if people aren't sleeping enough. They're not they're not sleeping, the sleep that these books are talking about the sleeping the sleep of being distracted. And neptunium are either meant to stay awake, but it's as if they're sleeping because they living through distraction. And then when you die and you see the angel of death and you see the angels and
to stay on
what you read about is true. You wake up to it that Subhanallah it is helped and it's true. Okay, so in sha Allah today, I think we have dedicated our session to dreams mashallah Tabata Kala
in terms of the Surah, as we said,
use of is in a in a transition. And this transition is because he's about to come out of the prison. I'm only going to speak about this point and we'll end the king said, Bring him to me. No doubt the king knows this person holding my wine. He can bring a dream interpretation. But can he bring the interpretation and the solution? This is next level.
And you guys need to watch yesterday's episode to appreciate what I'm saying right now. Okay. Because we discussed this yesterday, you should not only interpreted the dream he gave the solution.
employee of the palace goes back with the slave in the palace, this person
under the authority of the king goes back to the prison to use of Alayhis Salam, and says to us if Allah He Salam, the king is calling you out. Now look, this is instant freedom, just like he had instant
his jailing was instant, no due process. There is no due process required.
And this teaches you This is like a bit of a calibrator.
And the king says B and that's it. It doesn't it doesn't need the house of parliament and then the House of Lords and then a vote. And then you know, the vote can go once if it passes, Parliament goes to the Lords, I don't know how it is here. But in another country that I know of. That's how it is, without sharing any details. The point is here the king way that decision could be allowed to come out. Nobody can stop him. But guess what? Yusuf alayhi salam has you can say a green carpet between the prison and the king.
But he refuses to come out of prison.
Allah, Allah, He refuses to come out of the prison.
Salam, Jaya rasuluh Okay, look from me.
Bella Bella Rania, look at the Quranic elephants. And Allah doesn't give us all the fine all the finer details you can put the details together yourself. Hello, Jaya who are rasuluh Carla used to say to you, Allah doesn't tell us what he said to use of, because we already know what he's gonna say to us it because the king said what did the king say? Bring him to me. So we know the key the slave is going to go and tell him the king said go to him no need for repetition.
Allah says Yusuf alayhi salam said to this messenger Arijit go back in Arabic to that King. First el Houma barely miss wet hilarity a banner ad
in Arab BBK, Dina Ali.
He says, Go back to the king and tell the king to ask the women
about what happened, which women, the women who cut their hands.
When did they cut their hands when they saw this angel?
This man was like an angel. And he Mahathir Bashara.
They forgot that this is an apple or a banana or whatever they were cutting, it just went through until they felt that
we would say that we don't know what they said.
But you get what whatever that is you distracted, you distract. Like yesterday I was walking into the lift. And this building that I'm staying in, you can't move without this card. Everything is card card card card. So even the lift you can't push your floor. She walks into it, she's on her phone from before the lift. From before the lift, she's she's she's on her phone, distracted her and the other lift open, which takes you to some other floors. She walks into there.
And she just walks out again on the phone. Then the lift I'm going into opens she just walks into it.
She doesn't say checking which floor, she walks into it. And she doesn't even push put the car to click the floor. So I put the card I put the floor and she's busy on her phone. Now the lift these lifts move fast because the building that I'm in is a very high building here in Melbourne. And it's one of those when you know when you go to Makkah and you in the in the clock tower. You see how fast was this move? Has anyone been in the clock tower? in Makkah?
Theory and it's not a must any but if you have it's an example Have you have you ever been in a building that is a skyscraper and the lift moves? panela you feel like your ears popping? Yeah.
It's moving so fast. She's on her phone. Then a few seconds later it dawned upon her. Oh, I mean a lift in the lift is moving and she's quickly trying to scramble for the floor.
Now lucky someone else in the lift hamdulillah I'm completing the story of someone will say well Allah chef mashallah can any Messiah
Hungry Allah, Allah made it easy. It wasn't just me and her there was someone else and somebody else had clicked to the floor that she needs to go to.
For me, this is the life today people are just distracted. People are just distracted. But coming back to the point you can get so distracted, maybe if she was cutting a fruit she might have cut her skin wallow Island.
Because that level of distraction. You don't know what's happening. So these women, they were so distracted by the beauty of use of any histogram, they cut the hand use of his being specific. He's saying tell the king to ask those women about what happened. The very women who have blood that testified you could say to how amazing use of it he said and was
they testify to his beauty with the blood
remember you says in the rugby meaning ALLAH
PKD Jonnie rub here is Allah subhanho wa taala. From here is Allah subhanho wa Taala BKD Hiner Ali, and and you could say Rob here refers to the minister who is in charge of the home because he knows what his wife did to him. The minister knows what though his own wife did use varicella when she dropped him in the room. But the common tafsir is Robbia means Allah. And some of the scholars have said no doubt this is from Judeo Christian narratives. They call it Israeli yet to the Judeo Christian a Christian narratives. Some have pieced from there that the minister passed away. And that's why YouTube is now dealing directly with the king was the king Buddha said called the
minister. The minister is under the king.
So he's dealing directly with the king meaning he passed away Allahu Allah and whether he passed away or whether he he was removed from his post Allah knows best it's not important. Allah didn't tell us in the Quran.
Use of says interrupting my lord BKD him regarding their properties and him he knows who taught use of that his lord is Ernie
who taught him
his father when, at the beginning when use was a young boy in his house. Remember Yusuf alayhi salam was taught by his father in Rob Baca Ali Moon Hakeem, remember what Cavalli Kaya Jetta V Cara Bukoba you are a limo commuter wheeling ahead the are UT Munia amateur who are an eco or earlier aku but Come at me.
Boy, you come in Cabo, Ibrahima is happy. In Rebecca I live in Hakim, use of maybe he's 47. Maybe it's 50. Allah knows best how many years later after the conversation with His Father is saying in Nairobi. BKD Hina Aileen Allah Allahu Akbar,
you have to watch that session if you didn't watch it as well.
Now, before we go into the whole thing of the king in the city, and this is the last thing I'm going to say, and this is why I broke this verse up, is we've been talking time and time again Subhan Allah, of, of use of your hand, he was ajeeb in his looks, but also like the hyperbola he's the IG in his email.
He's ajeeb in his heart, with his heart, right? His heart is amazing achievements. phenomenally mind boggling, beyond descriptive, beyond our ability to describe amazing
his looks was like that the women cut their skin to tell us how amazing he was in his looks. But he wasn't just a good looking man.
His email was beautiful.
His relationship with Allah was beautiful.
His ability to be measured part of character part of his personality, his personality was beautiful personality. Why
use of his teaching us here that Yusuf has the complete package of sub, you know, sub summaries to be patient.
I didn't discuss this at the beginning of Surah Yusuf when Jakob said for example on Jimmy, because he mentioned the Amana exercise a beautiful patients because I wanted to discuss it later on. And Jakob is going to say for some reason Jamila as well. But let's package the topic of somebody here
Yaakov had beautiful patients as well. Yeah, no doubt about it. And Yusuf has it as well. Patients
can be understood
based on his categories. Now,
at a very simplistic level, patience is really about your ability to keep yourself together. When the circumstance strikes you and it's the natural consequence of the strike is you break apart, what is patient's you keep yourself together
as somebody makes you really angry that the consequence of his action towards you, is you losing your normative state, but you be patient and you maintain your normative state. It needs effort needs.
It needs effort from within. Allah says, Yeah, you're letting the AMA know Spiro and of spirit.
towards the end of the third quarter of the of the fourth juice. Yeah, you already know.
Be patient. While Saburo Warabi to Subhana Allah.
Allah tells the people of Eman, be patient, wasabi, wasabi Rue, and in Arabic, there's a there's a principle and Xia that Elmina that Dulo Allah zyada 10 Man
If you have a word that has increased letters, they increased letters means the meaning is also increased in intensity.
So cyber means more than a spear
because it is the command form of cyber.
Cyber Saba somebody three letter Cerberus. Sobre is four letters, which means the meaning of cyber is different than the meaning of server. Yes, they both mean patients but saw reefer is a command you being
you need persistent
is better be patient saw better be persistent with your patients.
And some of the scholars have said, and I've written this in my book, The three eyes of success that inshallah will come out this year be delighted insha Allah.
They've said server is to be patient, when the fight is within you.
And sabara your saguru saw Bureau is to be patient when the fight is within you and the environment is supporting you following
the consequence of the action that's been done to you Subhanallah at somebody makes you angry, right. So that's an internal matter you're dealing with, you're dealing with it into this, you need patience for it. But then you have your friends will tell you punch him.
Go for it, he Allah, He deserves it. Don't be weak.
Now you need to be persistent upon your patients, because now you've held yourself but now you have a circumstance, right? That's, that's trying to break your endeavor. So now you need and if this was a sob, you'll be persistent upon your patients. When Allah says Wow, beautiful, Robert who is is is endurance rabito sometimes it's a case whereby the external environment is lasting.
In pushing your internal battle towards breaking point, it's not a short thing. But it's like lasting a week, two weeks, three weeks, four weeks, we need any more about it rob you too. You need to endure it Subhanallah This is patients.
I'm giving you just an abstract general understanding of patients from the practical realm, okay, without going into the theory, linguistic theory and
Sharia theory. Now,
patients with it after this after what I've described to you to understand it, break it into two categories to understand it from the Muslim perspective.
that falls with
patients that is divided into three categories. Number one, a sub
To be patient to remain upon the do's. Allah told you do this and you're enough doesn't want you to do it. It's fine your retirement you're not missing sleep.
And you force yourself to wake up. This is somebody and the anthos bill. Lee K 10 l river Allah subhanho wa Taala you patients so that you can achieve Allah's pleasure. Now a time will come where you can just easily wake up
and we'll discuss this when we come to the reality of the knifes enough's the novices have three types when we discuss one my overly OFC but take this now so when we get the inshallah you can connect it there's wakey offered here is hard a time will come and it will be easy, but before you get to the time when it becomes easy you need to have somebody okay, this unit patients patients to remain upon us commands then you need patience to remain
away from falling into that which Allah told you not to fall into.
Your knifes wants to look at her or look at him. But you know Allah says, lower your gaze. So you be patient and you lower your gaze. It might be hard at the beginning sooner it will become easier, but between hard and easy you need to exercise patience
and then a Sabra Allah, Allah Akbar Allah, patience that you need to exercise. When Allah SCADA reaches you and it doesn't go your way.
You studied for your exam, you did everything in your capacity Subhanallah things didn't work out you failed the exam. This is the founder of Allah. Right? It's a difficult situation but you remain patient so that you do not say anything that displeases Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah Masha in La lucha in LA Roger, then let him
shine nwhl Musa and you say these words from the Sunnah, that indeed we are from Allah and to Allah we will return whatever Allah decreed is done it
And we'll be patient and we only say that which is pleasing to Allah whatever Allah does, he does good. This these patients, this is a categorization of patients. But there's another category. The other category and this is what I want to touch on now that use of is teaching us here. Use of his teaching us. And Sabra Yun Tassimo Illa a sobre el a theory was sobre la theory Subhanallah that solver is divided into two parts, you will have a sub
theory, several theories when you have to be patient. And we said when you have to be patient, there's three times you have to be patient to remain upon Allah's laws to stay away from Allah's warnings, what Allah told you to stay away from and to be patient, I mean to maintain yourself and Allah has either comes upon you and it doesn't go your way. That's a solid theory. Use of Allah he Salam since the time he was abducted. He has been exercising a sub array theory, compulsory patients, Jaco Valley his son and his father since use has been abducted, he's been practicing a suburb theory compulsory but you have no choice but to be patient.
But now the king is saying come out of prison.
And he's saying I'm going to be patient and stay in my difficulty, have a cybernetic theory
and act out and are cool. And Hakuna Sabra, I am choosing to be patient and I'm going to stay with this difficulty.
How amazing is used to Felisa like I said, Allah, I never teach this to Surah except this people in the audience will who will name their children use Vida he said use
Well, yesterday when I said again, someone here says Wallahi I'm thinking the same thing, I'm going to name my child use of
he's missing today Subhanallah if he had this lesson, then DVI
sent him to the YouTube channel.
This is a summary theory. Now a summary theory this this is from the computers of character will lie because this shows that use of is a person who, who is measured this from the completeness of a person, a person who can be clinical, when he needs to be and measured when he needs to be. This is from the completeness of of luck and character
Subhanallah you get some people mashallah they, they own it. But sometimes it comes across as bad character because there's times when they need to be measured, but they don't have that patience, and they very quick and they make mistakes.
The leadership is judged like that, when you're a leader, when are you able to be measured? And when are you able to be an executive? When When are you able to exercise the executive hat? And when can you access the measured hat? That's the science here.
When you're in a position of leadership, because you're dealing with different people,
right? Some people are more creative in their approach. Some people are more prescript some people are more detailed in their approach. You have some people in your team, if you if you if if they don't have the whole paperwork of how this project is going to be the budgeting, the plan, the process flow,
the SWOT analysis, et cetera, et cetera.
And the lack of mash he can't he he can't do anything.
You have to know how to work with that person.
When to be prescriptive with him when to be measured with him. If you be too prescriptive, you break him if you'd be too measured the project won't take off
some people are like that some people Subhanallah they just get on with it you tell them do on the horse beating meaning full speed they're gone DHL Express execution of the of the project. Now those people you have to know how to be measured with them hold them back at certain points why? Because maybe they haven't understood the risk portfolio well
you're doing this so quick but hold on. You're jumping this you jumping that you jumping that this could all end up falling on our faces if no one to pull them back. But you can't be too
measured with them because if you keep them to measure you to break them as well they'll say oh Allah I can't work here haha I'm going somewhere else.
that's what a different lesson inshallah but ultimately we see use of a as
mashallah, yeah, okay meaning my brother.
He has it
somewhere at the end, and he has this for a Mozilla OLALIA.
You see, if he comes out of the prison, think about this logically. And this is from the eloquence of the Quran. Use of has been thrown into prison for a crime he didn't commit but who, who knows that he didn't commit the crime only he knows. If he comes out of the prison, and he's working with the king, and then the king sorts out his situation, what will people say?
no vitamin. Well they say vitamin. Oh yeah, honey wasa any who are Caribbean al Malik. Well, Monica, Rafi, he must sell it. And he's close to the king. And the king swatted him out. But he's guilty.
What what does that do anything for his reputation, doesn't do anything for his reputation. It doesn't do anything for his reputation.
So use of before he interacts with the king, he says, No, fix my reputation first, while I'm in the prison, fix it. So when I come out of prison, I come out with my reputation intact, then I will engage you in terms of how to sort out the problem that's coming.
Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah. Allah rasool Allah He or many you can see this man, he is saying my visa, ALLAH SubhanA wa. It comes from Allah subhanho wa taala. Not this Melek not anybody else.
Your Exuma Yasha are using Luma Yasha. Allah raises in Rangoon He wills and he debases when he wills I leave you with this.
What can we call it? Bomb blast from the life of us of alayhis salam to ponder over as you move through this night. Circle now Heron I love you all for the sake of Allah heard of Allahu Allah or SallAllahu wasallam or baraka and Avena Mohammed wider Allah He was so happy
