Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen are behind a sterling on a solid on a salamander hartham in the B in the Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine a Mobarak. We begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and as always we start with the DUA taka but Allah Minami consola Amana May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our deeds. A another night from the special nights, the last 10 Nights has begun. And in other moments from the special moments of Ramadan has Subhanallah begun And subhanAllah it came to us after we completed a special moment, so merciful this month is And
subhanAllah when we think of how amazing these moments are, and how quickly they come and how quickly they leave, you can't help but feel Subhanallah
this emotion that you can't explain. It's just something there Subhanallah
that you can't explain. It's a it's a niggling feeling that accompanies everything else that you're doing. Subhanallah but when you pause for a moment you recognize Subhanallah it has to be because the month of Ramadan is leaving us Pamela this this bittersweet moments we're going through it once again. And we can actually remember I can remember the bittersweet moments from last Ramadan, which tells us how quickly this Ramadan came. And again how quickly this month has passed Subhan Allah we all are preserved as it is obedience. Allah you've made a priority. We Allah preservers in his obedience, and may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our month, and may he bring to us many, many more
of us, once we are upon Amen. And once we are upon good health and experiencing the pleasantries of life, living it within the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala I mean, they are an alum in today's episode, no doubt is the finale, the final one it has to be because I'm not here tomorrow. Illa Aisha Allah, as per the our plans. I am due to depart tomorrow. And that's after the taraweeh I said to you words that I had to get out of me Subhanallah because as I was completing the Salah, I was thinking to myself, This is my last rocker, leading the Muslims in Melbourne. Here, this particular venue is the last unit that I will leave them in. But I asked Allah we asked and we ask Allah again,
that Allah doesn't make it. The last mean, you are better. And I mean,
the finale really
is about a great journey from Palestine to Egypt has to be about this great epic journey from Palestine to Egypt. Why does it have to be about this great journey from Palestine to Egypt because as we discussed yesterday, at the end of the interactions between Yusuf and his brothers, he told him to go back with his shirt to his father, and the shirt would then be a means of his eyesight being returned. And also then use of told his brothers to
ask his family to come all together back to Egypt, the brothers, his parents, the whole family should come to Egypt. So if we are to title this episode, it has to be from Palestine, to Egypt. And I would add to it an epic journey. So Pamela, from Palestine to Egypt, and epic journey, and this is the first name I gave my coastal course when I wrote it in 2010. For a co author, a two day intensive on Surah, Yusuf Subhan Allah, I actually named it from Palestine to Egypt, an epic journey. It is an epic journey. Don't think about the actual travel from Palestine to Egypt. Think about where this journey started. It started with a young boy speaking to his father decades ago,
telling his father of this dream to be careful here, there's some water or tea or something has spilled over here, so it may be hot. Okay, Hamdulillah. So, it this journey started Subhanallah
with that moment, and we've been going through the journeys since that moment, up to today, throughout the month of Ramadan. This journey took me to Brisbane, then to Sydney, and between Sydney and Brisbane, I was back in Melbourne. And after Sydney, I came back to Melbourne with an epic journey for me as well.
Subhanallah So, yes, the journey from Palestine to Egypt, an epic journey Subhanallah and these are all happy moments. The finale, is everything happy. There's no sadness in it. There's no stress in it. There's no difficulty in it. It's it's all those happy moments. You find that the end of a really, really good story. You know, those ones that make you tear, right, but tears of joy, tears of relief.
years of happiness, we've seen use of united with bieniemy, we've seen use of now united with his brothers, the the acquaintance has been fully established, he told them who he was well, in a very prolific way, and they questioned and asked in the color and the use of are you indeed use of and, you know, their introductions took place. And now Subhan Allah, the father, who has been
patiently suffering, suffering gracefully
Subhanallah he's going to be reunited with his son, but with his son, with all his sons with with use of with Binyamin and with the older brother, who also stayed behind. And I want you to
something I should have said yesterday, and I didn't even the day before. And if I did, if I did, please forgive me, I don't recall saying it.
We have to learn from Yaqoob Subhanallah, that it's human nature to feel sad.
It's human nature to to feel stress. The Sharia does not hold you accountable for being sad,
doesn't hold you fulfilling accountable for for being stressed. It's a natural human response to events.
The scholars, they have this discussion in the books of NACA acid and the books of Zulu.
The discussion about
a soft LGB Lea,
human nature, does Allah hold us accountable based on human nature?
And the answer is no. The scholars agree that he doesn't, right. Because sometimes you can have for example, a Muslim neighbor, who harms you, and a non Muslim neighbor always helps you.
And human nature is to feel some love for some care, some positive feelings towards this non Muslim neighbor, who's always good to you looks after
the secret matters of your home, looks after your home when you're away. When your family needs help, they're there for you. But then you might have a Muslim neighbor, Subhan, Allah, May Allah guide them, anything happens in your home, they spread it in the city.
Anyone visit you They spy on you, and they spread that news to other people, and everybody knows everything that happens at your home, for example, you need help than ever available, and so on and so forth. What what are you naturally going to feel towards your Muslim neighbor? Who does that to you, you're going to feel, you know, sadness about them, hatred towards them, these this is human nature.
But Allah subhanho wa Taala will hold you accountable for your behavior,
your manifestations, as a result of your,
the feelings of human nature, you understand. So for example, you might feel love towards your non western neighbor, but if that causes you to cross the boundaries, and accept their religious beliefs, associate partners with Allah,
what will happen,
you will be held accountable.
Your Muslim neighbor who harms you if they make the Salem and you don't respond to the Salem, when Allah has made that a right of believers upon one another. Now, you will be held accountable. We are held accountable for our manifestations. And throughout we said that the story of use of Surah use of it teaches us time and time again that a believer is someone who happens to events.
Events don't happen to him.
A believer strikes and event strikes, a circumstance strikes a situation. And that situation becomes better because of that meeting.
Not the other way around.
You see, because the Muslim, a believer is defined by what Allah wants, not the human nature in terms of their manifestations in terms of how I'm going to act with people, how am I going to how am I going to behave?
We run ourselves based on what Allah wants us to do in that moment, not how we feel. And that's why you are not ABD and however, you're not a slave of your desires. You're not a slave of an osafo GB Lea, you're not a slave of your human nature. You're a slave of who
Allah, the slave of Allah subhanahu Azad, you see, so yeah, he cried Yaqoob he was sad Jakob, but he said in the marriage capacity was nil Allah.
He didn't complain about Allah, He complained to Allah.
Did he ever question Allah? Did he ever did I Allah never
Even in his old age, yeah, Bernie taboo for the hustler use of wacky Oh, my sons go and search for use of his brother, what are they? So mural Hilda. This is a man in his old age 40 to 50 Decades later,
suffering for 40 to 50 Decades after losing the apple to his eye,
hold it up
and hold it in Java.
After losing the apple of his eyes, subhanAllah
he's still telling his children do not lose hope in the Mercy of Allah. So this shows you
that he defined his moments.
Not so he didn't let the stress everything he felt, define how He will be with Allah subhanho wa Taala define the advice he will give to other people define how he wouldn't behave with his children with other people. There's so many lessons that you know Jacoba and how he dealt with what he dealt with his school in and of itself.
And like I said, there's postgraduate research on psychology psychotherapy, from Surah Yusuf
and understanding this whole EMA and so obviously, in Muslim countries, if you're studying psychology, upon curriculums that have no religion, connected to it, in terms of the worldview of the science, you're not going to get all of this
but in Muslim countries that don't exclude religion,
it in terms of governance and how we manage ourselves, and how we interpret events and how we deal with events. And and and it's a different topic. There's postgraduate research about this tapping into the psychology of Yaqoob and his Salah SubhanAllah. I told you that I mentioned this at the beginning we have postgraduate research on how to build a strong GDP, from Surah Yusuf
strong economy, from Surah, Yusuf HR human resource techniques, human resource criteria,
they tap into Surah Yusuf for this Subhanallah as if no time said there's over 1000 lessons. So this is this is an important point that I missed sharing I don't know if I shared it, you are allowed to and remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he buried his son Ibrahim did not tear.
And the Sahaba said to him,
they asked him about these tears. Now what did he say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that indeed the Isaiah and read the heart is saddened, but we never say anything except that which is pleasing to Allah and this is somebody in a sub in the somatic Gula as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that patience is when you hold yourself together, when the calamity strikes you when the calamity strikes you and wants to break you apart.
When you when a person loses their mind they broken right? The calamity wants to break you apart. So you lose your mind and you say anything and everything. Somebody is keeping yourself together and maintaining deco with your load. That is somewhere
so this is an important lesson that we can't miss at this juncture. Alhamdulillah also, we can't miss this whole idea of after every difficulty there's two eases after every day. This is the son of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah Allah teaches us this and in the 30th Juice elimination Raja Casa truck Allah says in NEMA I loosely use fun in nema. I loosely use Ron.
For in for every endeavor I lose for every difficulty there's an ease and Allah repeats it for every difficulty there's an ease the scholars of the field, they pondered over these two verses and they said that you can extract from it for every one difficulty there's two eases
why? Because in my Rasul I'll also
it's in the definite form
is in the definite form.
You see what's the definite form?
Subhanallah I'm not wearing this
hamburger lightly it was in front of us hamdulillah
from banana to academia in the Xeno
hamdulillah I'm making this dua because the people brothers looking at me like Szekler Hola. Hola, como la Did you forget to hit that mighty
We're still working. We're still working Allahu Akbar. Bashara Allah Allah Mustafa Mustafa always bring up the glad tidings Masha, Allah, Allah, Allah bless you heavy.
I'm going to miss you. Allah chromic Allah, Allah, Allah you. I'm going to miss everybody, just in case
So I don't want to upset anybody. But this is us. This is a specific message for Mustafa.
What was I saying before the mic I was explaining to you the definite article.
If I have, can I have this bottle?
Because I can look at
this is a bottle right? If I introduced his bottle to you, does it become any bottle or a specific bottle?
Becomes specific, isn't it? Right? So I show you this bottle. I say give me a bottle, he gave me a bottle. Okay, then I give him back.
Then after a few moments, I say give me the bottle. When I say give me the bottle. Can she give me her bottle? Can anyone else give me which button am I referring to? Because I said verb what the bottle means. I'm asking for the bottle in the definite sense. It's become definite now. It's not just any bottle it was introduced to us we know there's a specific bottle is definite in Arabic language to make something definite.
There's a tool known as Elif, and lamb and beef and lamb if you attach it to a noun, it becomes definite if I say phylum which means pen. It means any pen. If I say I'll column, the pen, I'm referring to
a specific pen. Okay, are you with me? Allah says in ama I looser
also means difficulty. Allah has used the definite article LRC l Rasul Allah has made it definite. But then when Allah talks about ease, he leaves it in the in the indefinite cells usara. He doesn't say l Usul. In Mercer, usara in MA NOSORH, usara in the next verse as well. So the scholars say that also in the second verse is the same author in the first verse.
The difficulty that Allah mentions in the second verse is the same difficulty in the first verse because of the definite article on it. But usage is in the indefinite since and it exists in two verses, which means Allah is saying, for every difficulty, there's an ease.
For that difficulty, there's an ease, so we have two eases, and we have one difficulty.
Connect with the Quran ajeeb. So how do you know that it's two aces and not emphasizing that it's one he's, like, just a repetitive, you know, you repeat something twice, I explained it to you. Again, we mentioned the definite article.
It's, even if you're talking about the same thing, those who are scholars of the Arabic language will know.
So then how should you know definitely if you don't know the Arabic language ask us can.
You were told,
but you don't sound convinced.
So this is the discussion, the scholars of Tafseer they mentioned this. This is the son of Allah, that Allah for every difficulty gives you to Jesus.
But we don't know. And that's why I was emphasizing the points of ease when we're going through the story of use of remember when the brothers gathered and said, Let's kill him.
Carla called aluminum Let's actually use of somebody said don't kill him. But throw him into the bottom of our
that was an ease.
That was an easy, what was harder being killed.
And what an easy it was, if he wasn't thrown in the well, how many millions would have died 40 to 50 years later, because there will be no use of to manage the storage houses. When the drought and famine came. He was the best man available for it. And he couldn't have been there if he wasn't in the world. Do you see that is what an E is that was what an E is that was
and there was other parts in the story where we highlight at this point now
I want to use this as a segue into another point. That My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam
our belief the belief of Allah Sunday will Gemma
the belief of the righteous
followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the rightly guided followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Our belief is that there's nothing like complete evil.
There's nothing like complete evil.
There's nothing like complete evil. Are you with me? Yes, we say well, Kadri Haley, he was sorry he mean Allah. Good and bad fate is from Allah, but good and bad. Here is relative
is relative. Good and bad is relative. This is a very important point. I need you to focus. Don't focus on the children right?
Turning around guys. I don't need Instagram minds with me I need focus I need students of knowledge.
I can see the Instagram dopamine
age as afflicted the older generations as well. Subhanallah
kids will be kids. We want them here. Why are you taking them away? Heavy evidence evidence. Okay.
You see now because the adults can't concentrate they have to take the kids away. Hola. Hola.
Hola. Hola Stan. We love the kids with us but the adults must focus.
We say the younger generation can't focus but I see this in 40 year olds. 50 year olds, nobody can focus because everybody is on tick tock tick tock and Instagram.
I don't know who I was telling this to when I was catching one of the flights either to Brisbane or Sydney. I was at the airport, waiting to board and I just started observing people observing people, people of all ages and yaki.
Aloha Mustang and the young take leadership from where they take the guidance from from the top as well.
We're discussing a very important point are you with me? We say good and bad fate is from from Allah.
Good and bad fate Islam Allah
we believe that but good and bad. This bad that we mentioned here is relative.
It's bad from a perspective from an angle.
I'll give you an example. I'm not sure if I said this to be for. Let's say Masha Allah, this community, Masha, Allah is very rich. Everyone has Ferraris and Lamborghinis, masha Allah, Allah, Allah. Everyone has Ferraris and Lamborghinis.
Insha Allah, everyone can dream you free to dream brothers. You're free to imagine hamdulillah Allah has put no limitation on your ability to dream and imagine you can imagine your car outside is a Lamborghini. Hello, it's helpful for you to know Riba in it, no interest.
Now, imagine Subhan Allah, Allah protect us all. That community was in the lecture, and hailstones fell from the sky,
and smashed the windscreen of all these Lamborghinis and Ferraris
and the people came out after the
pros procession ended, and they saw the state of the vehicles now, honestly,
what would they do the people walking out would they say Alhamdulillah Hara Bella Alameen? Or would they say La Hawla? Wala Quwata illa biLlah Hola. Hola, Mr. Han? In there la Masipa huh? Well, what would they say?
They'll say insurance
would people be happy? Will people be really upset
when they say this is a good thing or this is a bad thing? Okay, let's say it's a bad thing. Bad thing right. But what about the guy who sells windscreens?
the guy who sells the windscreens what's he gonna say? Hamdulillah. Any using Subhanallah Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen
Do you see this? It's bad from an angle. It's relative. Every day. Allah allowed you to worship Him through being thankful and the windscreen Salah had to be patient. And then one day Allah gave him a circumstance where he could worship Allah being thankful and you have to be patient.
So in Allah's plan,
you see, so remember this
because I want you to think about it in light of use of in the well, decades before remember I spoke to you about this pixel? Are you guys using it against using it in conversations against me? Yeah, Mashallah. So pixel, remember, I said we only have a pixel everyday life gives us a pixel. But we cannot understand the picture from a pixel. A pixel is a million of a picture. For example, you cannot tell the picture from a pixel. When something happens to you in life, it's a pixel. The whole picture is with Allah. You don't have the whole picture. But you have to be patient and gather more pixels. You have to be patient and gather more pixels. That's what being patient means. You just got
to go on. Be good. Do the right thing. Live the next day, get through the next night. Every moment will give you more pixels. You will gather you will gather you will gather you will gather you will gather you will gather and suddenly the picture will start giving you options you start thinking okay maybe this is the picture of this maybe
did use of in the prison
think that he would end up being the minister
via the person who he interpreted his dream for when he told him to go to the king and mentioned him to the king.
And he forgot to do it. years past, nothing's happening.
Yousuf was looking to get out, you know, they call it the Get Out of Jail cut mentioned me to the king. So my case can be looked into and I can get out of here. Did you think I'd end up being the minister?
use of managed the storage houses so well, Egypt had food Palestine had food. So countless people had food right? I'm asking you a question. When Yousuf was thrown into the world 50 years ago, let's just use 50 as our own figure.
When you were at that point in the story at the beginning of Ramadan, we said use has been thrown into the well by ALLAH ask you did you feel happy or sad at that moment, said, now that you know that if use of wasn't in the well, he couldn't have been found by the by the caravan. If he wasn't found by the caravan, he wouldn't be in the slave market on the day that the minister was looking for a slave boy. And then he couldn't have ended up in the minister's home where he learned the craft and the trade of finance and so on and so forth, as some of the scholars have to say. And then he went through that test which got him into prison. If he wasn't in the prison, he wouldn't have
been the inmates if it didn't be the inmates wouldn't have interpreted the dream. He didn't have the dream. That person worked for the king Buddha know that there's someone in the prison who can interpret the dreams King, the king's dream.
And if that didn't happen, then Yusuf would not have had that audience with the King. And when he had the audience with the king, he had the opportunity to take over the storage houses because of that millions of people's lives were saved. People who were probably not even born when you suppose in the world. Now I'm asking you at this point in the story use of in the world was that uh, do you feel happier? Do you feel sad?
We're not suggesting we start throwing people down. Well, this guy's wrong is wrong. Wrong is wrong. But Allah's plan will always succeed. Allah's plan will always come to be.
Life is a test. Life is a test, as we said, Allah will make manifest which one we know who from amongst us is best indeed through the test. But you got to just keep doing the right thing trusting Allah's plan.
That Allah has a plan, everything is happening because of a bigger plan that Allah has, I don't know the plan.
So I'm not gonna stress and cause myself to break and cause myself to be d capacitated. For something that's beyond my control. This is Allah's plan. I just need to do what Allah told me to do, and fasten my seatbelt and manage the ride.
And the day the ride is easy, I thank Allah and I build gender through Shuker and gratitude. And the day the ride is turbulent and difficult. I hold on to my seatbelt and I'd be patient and I build gender through being patient.
Getting through it.
This is what you said earlier, he said, and his life and his story is teaching us totally some address of life not a mattress for your teens and madrasa for adulthood. It's, it's really for your life.
It's the gift that keeps gifting through us.
Okay, Allah subhanho wa Taala then tells us well a Mufasa tiro color a boom in Nila God how use of Allah Allah and to fundido Subhanallah
Allah subhanho wa Taala says that when the brothers left Egypt now it's okay it's all fine we found the bieniemy we found use of our father told us go find the use of his brother Guess what? We're going back to our father and we're going to surprise him we found use of his brother
the impossible just happened right once this is happening once this is happening yeah
yeah cool buddy Salem
is saying to
on second Jacoba he Salam is saying to those with him
that I I
sense the scent of use of
he says I sense
the scent of use of I smell him
Lola and to find needle for another you find needle when when I found that that you find it?
See now for
me he's saying to his saying to those with him and who's with him or the brothers with him or his sons with him? No, they in Egypt. He's saying to those with him, he say
you may think I'm crazy.
But I sense the smell of you.
I smell him
It takes a lot for a father. So you may think I'm crazy because he thinks look, every time they keep telling me that you're gonna harm yourself, you're going to because I'm telling I smell him
as well. He said, now there's a week narration. There's a week narration. Allah knows best. But it's meaning doesn't go against this
Subhanallah this narration states that when you sort of gave the command to the brothers to go back to Egypt and fetch their father and come back as the whole family back to Egypt, they were when they sought permission from Allah.
Danny, the wind sought permission of Allah to take this Glad Tidings to Jakob.
Because the wind was feeling the stress of the turbulence of the Ark of Allah he said, the other creations of Allah subhanho wa Taala
were feeling the reality of this test that Allah put and use of threw at him salat wa salam.
All the creation of Allah the armies of Allah many when I Adam, would you do that? Because Allah who Allah is armies are many.
The wind sought permission. And thus even though they were in Egypt, in Palestine, in can add, he's in the laboratory house of five. Did they make much of it? Did you think they they felt that okay, yeah, he is losing his mind. What do you guys think? Yes, they did. Allah tells us all to Allah, He Luffy in the color field, Olalekan. Kadeem, they said, We swear by winning these two girls, by Allah by Allah, you are definitely deluded in your old age. It's not nice to say that. And immediately, and he says, You're gonna think I'm seeing now. And yeah, they responded saying we think you see now, we think you're deluded. Now, the question is, Who are these people, some of the scholars have
to say, you know who these people are?
No, the grandchildren, the children of the children.
Maybe his wives.
But I'm choosing the children citation from the scholars have to see for a reason.
And that reason is to extract the lesson that My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, when you let your children see how you treat your mother and father,
they will grow up, assimilating your behavior with your mother and father.
And if Allah doesn't protect you, when you grow old, they will use that behavior with you as well. And it will be worse because every generation it gets worse. It gets compounded bad character gets compounded. The bad character from that generation comes to the next generation. It's, it's mixed with the bad character of that generation is compounded.
When you let your children see how you treat your parents, you are telling them when I'm old, treat me like that.
So Pamela, one of the mesh is not related to sort of use of pariah in a lecture he was mentioned the story a true story of this father SubhanAllah. And I can't remember if the father was crying to the chef and relating the story out of his sorrow. But he says one day Subhanallah, his son came to him with a plate with a hole in it, a used old plate.
And what's the problem here? The problem is, he was remembering when his father was old, and he was looking after his father. What did he used to do? He placed his father in an outside room, you know, in some lands, they have a room for the for the for the sack for the driver for the maid. You have the house and then you have a holdover? And it is,
right. Yeah. When his father was old, he would he placed his father in that room. He looked after him in that room, for whatever reason. And he used to send this the food to the father in a particular plate.
And his son was small. And his son used to carry that plate to that room outside to give the food to the grandfather.
And lo and behold, that son kept that plate for all those years. This is the showerhead that he innocently kept that plate that young boy innocently kept that plate and he grew and grew. We talking many years later, decades later, he's the father became old, the son found that plate and delivered the food in the same plate
to his father, that the father used to give him to give to his grandfather
and this is the showerheads.
Subhan Allah commanded you to that
as you plan social, you reap.
Subhanallah anyway, some have opined and said that the issue here is that because of how the children will talk to Jakob, their children would see how they will talk to Jakob. So it was easy for them to just say this to Allah He in the caleffi Valley Kalka DUI
Do the same old eras you'd have been changed ever since we know you ever since we were born
you haven't changed you are in that era and it's it's continuing. They heard they felt they own father's telling their father, that you are an error you're going to carry on like this until you destroy yourself you harm yourself.
It follows on children are imitative by design.
I'm sure who has young children here, young Okay, you got to mashallah everyone Masha Allah, for those who don't have Allah grant you and for those who need the means for it Allah grant us for righteous spouses. I mean
you will see when you have your child or those of our children, when your child is growing sometimes you look at them and you think Subhanallah that looks like me a mini me.
You might see them eating, I think
so you might see them sitting.
Have you noticed that? You see them sitting sometimes but is it like it's like a mini me exactly how is it
the imitative by design? They imitate their environments, you understand? Anyway, call with Allah indica la vida radical Kadeem, this is what they say to their the father, sorry to the grandfather, but act like we said this was from Allah as ease upon Jacoba insulin fella and Jaya Al Bashir who Allah who Allah wa G for that diverse era. When the Bashir became the bearer of glad tidings came with the shirt. The shirt was torn on his face, his eyes came back, like we said, we're not going to go into the details of it because we don't know the secret of the shutdowns or use of and what happened here. But we do know that there was stress and when that stress was compounded, Jakub lost
his eyesight. When they shared came back. Obviously he got the news that his son is okay. His son is a believer, his son is a prophet with Yemenis. Okay. My eldest son is okay. All the stress is gone for that day. basura his eyesight came back. It's all the miracle of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah knows best the Quran doesn't give us details. And everything is Allah is doing. Allah Allah condition Kadena Allah is upon on April. O Allah and Allah come in me I never mean Allah, he may Allah to Allah.
This is like the shark cnfs
The person reads finally, the first words that comes out of his mouth is Did I not tell you that indeed I know from Allah that was you do not know.
Meaning, you know, like somebody you argue with someone, you know, he tells someone we're going to eat out to a restaurant. And then we say what's the cuisine? They say it's Uyghur.
So we got a cuisine,
right Mustafa Uighur we go cuisine. Then. The brother says no, no, no, no, no. So we got that is Chinese Korean.
I don't know maybe the Chinese is different Korean or is it mixed amalgamated. Mix Chinese Korean, when the other brother says I'm telling these Uighur and this half an hour arguing about this? Yeah. It's not Uighur, I'm telling you. I've seen the restaurant I checked on Google. I Google says is Chinese Korean other brother says no, it's weaker. The brother who works they told me it's weaker. Right? Then what happens? After all the stress you you finally go to the restaurant and uses Chinese Korean? What do you say? I told you so.
I told you so. By the way, this is a truth is this is a true story that I'm sharing with you. I'm saying it now. So it's documented in Surah Yusuf so it can be listened to, until Allah wills. whoever listens to us, they will remember this event. Allah bless our brothers. We love them for the sake of Allah. It's from the beautiful moments of my trip here. But it's it really happened when we got there. That one brother said, I told you so. This is what they are confusing.
You guy, you people thought I'm going to harm myself and I'm senile. And I'm deluded. And, and and, and, and now he's saying I told you so. So immediately the son say to the Father, yeah. abana Look at the Adapt. Subhanallah you can see this sincerely regret. They have realized Subhanallah how badly they've behaved. How wrongly they've behaved with their brothers with with their father.
Is Stefan Phil and as lubaina in Hakuna hottie. ask Allah to forgive us. Indeed, without doubt, we were wrong.
No discussion. No buts. No ifs. My dear father, my dear fire abana beautifully they say this. Oh my dearest father. ask Allah to forgive us meaning you're a Prophet of ALLAH ask Allah to forgive us.
Indeed, without doubt we are wrong.
Now Jacoba Islam says something interesting you say so far as the field will be in who? Who will have all right.
So far in the Arabic language refers
To the present tense, but not the immediate present tense.
If you tell me, can you bring me a cup of water? And I say, Sir, I'll serve Allah just You see, I don't say so far sir, if it means I will do it immediately. If I say sofa often, it means I will do it, but after some, I'm going to finish one thing and then I'll bring it to you. This is from the precision of the Arabic language.
Jakob didn't say sir Aston Villa Karabi. So ista Pharaoh lecom. Robbie, he says, sofa, a Stavroula camera.
I will ask Allah to forgive you.
But he doesn't say I will do it. Now. I will get to it as if you're saying I will and I will get to it later. Now, this is interesting.
Isn't it interesting?
Because if you delay asking Allah to forgive them and one of them returns to Allah
after that request,
this is you feel you feel this is an urgent matter, this is a time bound matter. This request is time bound, right. But Yaqoob says this, Now I pondered over it we have what the scholars have to say. And the scholars have to say that he said this because he was going to do it, but he wanted to wait till the last third of the night. For example, he wanted to wait till a moment went to as accepted because of how wrong they were, that they are wrong. Meaning they missed the the their sins towards the father towards Yusuf towards Binyamin. He needed a dua that is done
with all the help
that the DUA gets we need to meet.
And one of the ways we eat out without being answered is when we ask Allah during the seasons of dua, a season of the wire like the last third of the night, for example. This is an explanation. Another I mean, this is a personal a personal
thought, and Allah knows best is that we know we are called to be a benevolent man,
and that he had already forgiven his children. But he already asked Allah to forgive them. Which father ever asked Allah to punish his child.
Which parent ever asked Allah to punish the child. I've just tried to think about this rationally, that no matter how much they've wronged the father, no father would want to see it on the day of Tiama, their child's being burned in the hellfire.
So it's only natural that you can deduce that Iacob ID Salam, and we've seen how noble he is in terms of his character. And we also use it as a chip off the old block, right? And he uses it's so amazing, but he's Jacoba.
So Yaqoob, must have already asked Allah to forgive his children. But he didn't want to tell them that. Because it's important, they feel a little bit, you know, they feel the weight of the gravity of the behavior.
He doesn't say I'll do it, or I've already done it, he goes, I will, Inshallah, I'll get to it.
Now they say let them sweat a little bit.
And you just let them feel the burden a little bit. It's good for the tarbiyah it as if he was running with his children at terbium over tarbiyah was how you nurture your kids how you raise your kids.
Allah knows best.
Philip Madhava Allah useful for our Illa Allah phosphors the story, they enter Egypt, they get to Egypt. Allah doesn't tell us how what why when they get there, right. Some of the scholars have seen say use of was so respectful to his parents use of went to the borders of Egypt
are using went to the to the borders Subhanallah that is how respectful he was. Because you get this impression from the west. You get this impression from the west. Right?
Because Allah subhanho wa Taala has fallen by definitely and it was our la boy to some say da Allah use of meaning his borders. We border the lands that he had control over. As soon as they entered the lands that he had control over our ELA a boy Subhanallah How beautiful is the Arabic? English can't do justice but I will try my best. Allah says when the caravan entered Egypt
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us when
the family reaches Egypt, Yusuf alayhi salam, he meets his family. He meets his family, he meets his parents, he he receives his parents. That's the word he receives his parents not just received them, he receives them graciously. Our ELA he a boy
it's difficult Subhanallah to to capture the
the emotion of the Arabic on you
Translating to English
Subhanallah, our Ilia boy he graciously welcomed them.
And as part of that gracious welcoming, what's the first thing he says to his parents? Would hello mr. Insha Allah who made him enter into Egypt with the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala insecurity.
Subhanallah think about this, he mentioned security, but he doesn't mention food. Why? What's in Egypt?
and our lemma say, a human being
has many needs, right? The greatest needs of human being are to
Number one, never to be hungry. And number two to be secure.
Give him food, give him security everything else he can manage.
And where do we get this from? From Surah Yusuf.
We'll come to it but also from the elf your courage.
The level of courage elf him regulator *o. Allah mentions these bounties that Allah gave the Quraysh these caravans that they had in the winter in the summer, Allah says, look at you know, recognizing the bounties of these caravans and these trips, trade trips, worship the Lord of this house and levy a primer, who majeure who kept them fed and saved from hunger or M and human health and kept in the hearts of all the other Arabs and their tribes, this fear for the wealth of the Kurdish
and that's why they left no one would touch the wealth of the Kurdish. Remember, there were desert bandits in the desert. The caravans of the Kurdish would just go to Syria go to Yemen come back. No one would dare try they would go with few gods as well. Look at the Battle of better abou Sofia and had the wealth of the Quraysh. And how many gods was him? Less than 50. We talking about the entire wealth of mankind, you could say the price of Makkah, only 50 cards
because no one did touch them. They caravans you mess with them. Birds might start pelting you from the sky. God imagine the fear people had in the hearts with the Quraysh because when Abraham came with the elephants, the Quraysh were in charge of the Kaaba and Allah sent these birds with petals.
And we learn about the laffy Kurdish after LM Terra Guevara booqable has have been feed. Allah tells us about a surah to fill
in the theme of the Quran, and how the sutras are stationed in the Quran, depending on which view you see is stronger whether the Sahaba set the sutras in order or whether the Sahaba has set it in order based on the instruction of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but that's a discussion for Ottoman Quran
use of didn't tell his parents, welcome to Egypt, and you won't be hungry. He says Welcome to Egypt, and God willing
and to safely
why you don't have to worry about hunger anymore.
You know this with the RT Moosejaw B, we don't think we have wealth which is inferior for Casa de Kaleena. And be generous to us. Allah loves those who are harmless, those days are gone.
I'll take care of you.
The test is over.
The test is never over. We always test it. In good times we tested and in difficult times we tested but the difficult times are over. Now we will be tested in terms of being grateful to Allah. Because now we will live in times of ease. We need to thank Allah, we will we will we are building gender being patient and now we're going to build gender being thankful. So he highlights these parents security, because food is not an issue. Does that make sense? Are you with me Brothers and Sisters in Islam? Okay. Subhanallah how many lessons right at the end, one of our boy here will have a ruler who should Jeddah will call at her that we are in Kabul, by the Jalla hora de haka la Akbar.
He raises his parents upon the throne, and the parents and the brothers, they fall down into prostration.
Now, this forestation was permitted in the Sharia not permitted in our Sharia, and some have gone to the extent of describing what sujood means here. Is it a bowing as we bow when we make sujood? Or is it a prostration? Like we know when we prostrate or is it a form of bowing?
The point is, it was allowed in the Sharia, and it's not allowed in our Sharia.
Use of sees what's happening before his eyes, and he sees Subhanallah something that he saw, albeit in a different way, when he was a young boy in the home of his father before he was abducted. It's like you feel the last kind of
as Asian he had with his father. The interpretation of it is the first event he has with his father. Decades later. The first moments with his father are a manifestation of the last moments with his father that we know from the story
who can refute your stories like this?
So use of explains yeah Betty. Oh my dear father heard that we literally are human couple and look how beautiful they are. But remember at the beginning of the story,
if color usefully over here, have it in the right way to hide their shadow coca or shumsa Oil Kamara or a to whom Lisa GD here a very young boy going to my father, my dear father, beautiful way of calling it your father. Obviously Baba Baba, Baba, you call your father that as English do.
Now he's old. You have it. My dear father, Baba.
You will always be your father's child, you will always be your mother's child. Even if you're 90 years old, and your parents are alive you the baby.
That's how it is. No matter how old you are. You might you might have great grandchildren, as long as your parents are alive. You that You the baby, and if they shouted, you be on it. Somebody will say, Yeah, I'm still getting shouted, actually meaning brother.
Well, I will just the Arabic words keep coming out because of the Arabs in front of me. I have to translate. Like I said, the people online and share. What are these words?
It means brother, i Brother share my father. He's shouting at me. I'm 40 years old. I'm 50 years old. He's still shouting at me.
Your brother, my dear brother, take it on the chin. No matter how old you are you still his boy.
You still his? You still his boy.
And time will come Subhanallah when he won't be there to shout at you and you'll be missing it. But that did happen. It happens our parents as they get older, they become set in their ways. It's National, this is what happened to all of us. The older you get, the more set you come you you and you become in your ways. And then they choose to keep something a certain way. And because you're young and you have more flexibility in your life, you start interpreting what they do as they're being stubborn. They're not being stubborn. It's just life.
To mature and I mean by the Overton window or fine or Shaybah in another era Darphin or Shaybah. Both attributes to have, have some housing.
Allah says we bring to you after strength, weakness and old age, the circle of life, Circle of Life, Circle of Life,
the circle of life.
Now, he tells his father, that this dream is the manifestation of the dream I told you when I was a young boy he then uses goes on to say what the SNMP is Ragini Minassian YJ will be communal by that we mean by the Anessa che upon obeying obey the equity in the role of people in Asia. In the Hoover element, Hakeem, this is the end of the story. And he will be right at the end. But Subhanallah this last verse, there's so many talking points from it. I'll try and be brief and try and share them with you. He says to his father, what are the assignor be? Allah was good to me. Allah was good to me. When was ALLAH good to me? If Ragini Mina Sujan when Allah took me out of the prison.
Now there's two talking points here. talking point number one is what I mentioned to you early on in Ramadan, when we're discussing the prophetic parenting, and how Yusuf at the end of his life, remember the lessons that Jakob gave him at the beginning of his life.
Yusuf alayhi salam doesn't say to his father and his family and his brothers, Allah was good to me when Allah took me out of the world, which was harder for use of being removed from the world or being removed from prison, meaning which was harder for use of being in the world or being in prison.
And which was the greater blessing being taken out of the world or being taken out of the prison?
Naturally, you'd say the wild because the small boy in a well this is a more scary he was an adult in prison, take care of himself. I'm a big boy. Right? These boys take care of themselves. But Yousuf doesn't Subhanallah mentioned the boat.
Why doesn't he mention though?
He doesn't want to remind his brothers. He doesn't want to make them feel sad. Didn't he say
to his brother brothers letter three Bradley communium Yahiro Allahu Allah who were who are humble rahimian and yesterday our brother Masha Allah He gave us the lesson, masha Allah direct Allah that we learned from use of statement that use of whether already forgiven them because if use of hadn't forgiven them, he wouldn't have said his brothers Allah will forgive you. Because Allah will only forgive you if I forgiven you. So use if he's teaching us when you forgive someone, make it a perfect forgiveness. Don't forgive them and remind them remember, we spoke about the
god of the sky Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and Allah says Allah for well yes for who you are or who we are you forgive him. pardon him? Yes, for whoever as as one of brother Shakyamuni who said like open a new page.
It's a new page
use of you saying my forgiveness of my breath. This is so perfect. I don't even remember the well what? Well, as if you say what well incident? I don't know for any Well, what are you talking about? He doesn't mention it. Subhanallah This is a perfect from this is from the character of use of meaning right at the end of the story, the character of use of is hitting us to talk about him having half of a beauty. What about the beauty of character? What percentage would you give to that? Subhanallah Okay, that's point number one point number two. And this is somebody that Allah subhanho wa Taala taught me.
I mean, I don't say like as if I'm getting Ilhan Omar some inspiration but meaning this is something ALLAH blessed me to know. In these last few days, to come to know in the last few days.
When we were discussing use of in the prison,
we spend time talking about him always saying, always taking things back to Allah. Then he come in family law here, Eileen, our alumnus, remember, when he told the people in the prison about his towhee that his belief and is on the straight path and the way of his forefathers and his identity and, and, and, and when he finished all of that he he didn't attribute it to himself. He said barely coming forward to Allah here Elena are alumnus This is from Allah has fallen upon me and upon the people. He always and one of the points we took out and from other parts of the story as well, this whole idea of always giving all credit back to
to Allah subhanho wa Taala to Allah to Allah and him and Hakim, Allah subhanho wa Taala the ambition the otherwise
he is saying, what could Axanar be it Rajani made a surgeon.
Why? Because my dear parents, my dear brothers, we are having this moment now. Because Allah took me out of the prison. Because then Allah took me out of the prison it was to the king and the king to the spot here and this part has been a means of us being reunited. I'm not going to forget the father of Allah upon us.
I can't forget when Allah took me out of the prison, at this moment of extreme happiness, of extreme excitement, of extreme joy, of extreme relief, this momentous moment, this historical moment, this moment of glory, this celebratory moment, I'm not going to forget Allah.
And in detail.
In salaries, we say we thank Allah for this moment, users going back to the original moment.
I thank Allah for this moment and every moment that led me to this moment, he's not forgetting ALLAH SubhanA wa at that hour. I said it occasionally Allah was good to me when he removed me from the person will be coming Alberto and he brought you out of the desert lands and NASA, by the Anessa shape on baby after che upon created enmity between me and my brothers
who taught him this? Who taught him verse shaytaan, causing enmity between him and his brothers? His father when when he was a little boy in his father's house, and his father said to him, Loretta Susu, Erica aquatica, yaki do laka Qaeda do not reveal this dream to your brothers for they will plot against you in a Shayla aniline insanity or Doom movie in indeed Shavon to mankind is a clear enemy.
It's not that he's saying, you guys were all good for throwing me into the word no, no, you are wrong.
I forgive you, Allah has forgiven you. But we'd also in this whole process, don't forget the enemy The champion is twice it is a pawn who sewed remember Shavon whispered false whisperings to the heart.
Right for the loves use of too much loves Binyamin too much he's catering for them too much is too over protective over them. He wants to be with them. He's always around them with us. Is that too interesting? Ever since they came, it's been about them. This is from Shavon she thought is sewing the hatred in the hearts of the brothers for each meaningful use of an bieniemy.
So use of is doing the hour here again, remember we said is $1 machine recognizing Chapin wrote hand in this and also reminding everyone including us to Omaha Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam This is the our from use of in the 21st century.
To us that don't forget about
the enmity Shavon souls in our hearts for each other. So if you have a brother or sister who is not forgiving you who's not trying to, you know come halfway and meet you halfway and improve the relationship with you. Don't allow yourself to start hating them.
Don't just remember the work of shaper
and don't be a two
For shaper, don't be a maybe that other person has become a tool for shaper, but you don't become a tool for change.
When I use remained the Kushina and Yokomen
Allah says in the Quran we should be just do not let your enmity and hatred meaning your enmity towards a person cause you to swerve off the path of justice is you know Accra booty taco be just this is closer to Taqwa. Sometimes you have a brother remember we also mentioned that the other day there's some people who you will know them people don't know them but people praise them but you really know who they are
but that's that's another lesson that you keep your hide their false but also sometimes what happens is
there's been a Today we live with you know, if especially today Allah you feel you open your email you open your direct messenger you open your website email.
Shakeel is everywhere, Masha kill problems everywhere.
When I was training to become a judge, the judges that I was training with used to tell me what Allah He excited
any enter to have him any you are Masha. Allah, lucky, Allah has favored you, Allah has honored you, I say, How come say What are you studying cava, judiciary, martial law, and you're taking this knowledge. But alas, you will go and you will be at that. You will, you will go and you will be propagating Islam and but we were going to have to be sitting five, six hours a day listening to listening to people's problems.
It's stressful. It is every day, every day SubhanAllah. Except when Allah has mercy on you that every person that walks in your courtroom, you know, it's it's emotional, it's a problem. It's heavy. It's heavy. So they were they were saying this out of, you know, this understanding. And I said to them, I said exactly back here, I said, I don't doubt that your test is a test. But if I show you my emails, if I show you my ID, you'll see that the machine the problems of the people are everywhere, and they're with me as well. The only difference is you forced to look into the problems, and I have a choice whether to do it or not.
And if I don't do it, I fear Allah will hold me accountable on the day of cam, because Allah brought this knowledge to me for a reason.
And sometimes Subhanallah it happens, it happens that OMA has an agenda. You know, they have problems with each other, and your email box is full. And sometimes I'm going to the emails, as soon as I come to an email that's making dua against me.
Why? Because I'm late in
getting back to them.
So you actually get to the problem, email. And then as you go, go go you because it's fun Allah sometimes it happens. It happens, right?
I mean, this last month of travel, I was selling the brothers, away from my family has practically all practice the last three months.
You guys have seen more than me in this month
than my own family.
I can only say you guys, because before that I was in another country before that in another country. So you guys weren't on there. But you get the point.
So sometimes it happens, you delayed the people's problems are so many. And sometimes they're so intense, that people lose themselves. And they see you as a means of a guidance and they need that help and you delay it and giving it to them and it spills over. I don't hold them accountable. And I know Allah subhanho wa Taala is just he won't take someone's do out against me an answer just like that when there's no fault from me towards them.
But the point is, people's problems are everywhere. Because the way we live our lives today, contractually, we everywhere. We our ability to interact have become so easy. We interact remotely. We interact physically, that the life of this world has brought us together and causes us to bump into each other a lot. And as a result of this bumping what happens? What's wrong?
Hello, I can't even see it.
How did you see it is so tiny.
Oh my sure it came down to listen to sort of use of it came down from this. It happens. Don't worry.
It didn't come to bite. You just wanted to drain the lesson.
What was I saying? What was I think the spider distracted us a little better. Incy Wincy Spider.
What was I saying?
I was saying that SubhanAllah. The nature of life today causes us to bump into each other a lot. So the chances of problems between us are
a high especially when we have low mental maturity, low maturity, low levels of patients with each other. We get offended very quickly.
We get offended very quickly. Right. And
sometimes what happens is and come back to the original point. You're trying to make up with somebody they're not playing ball and things are left half big
between you both, okay, and then somebody else comes, somebody else comes and says something about them that isn't true.
Do not be a true for shaytaan in that moment defend them. You might say why should I defend that person, that this person say what they want to say about them? defend them. Allah says here it will be just don't let the issues you have with each other. So if you have the path of justice,
how should you help yourself, defend them by taking a page out of the book of use of Allah, His Salah by remembering shaytans hand in sowing hatred between the believers.
So you remember that maybe my brother or my sister isn't coming halfway to meet me here so we can resolve our problem. Because shaytan has put in their heart something towards me, I'm not going to hold them accountable. I'm not going to forget Shere Khan.
And I'm gonna ask Allah subhanho wa taala, to bring our hearts together and save us from the process of Shavon. Now you make dua substantially, because Yusuf is saying here after Shavon caused a hatred and enmity to exist between me and my brothers. Yusuf says in the rugby lottery for Lima Ayesha, in the Hula, hula Ali will Hakeem to heart Allah. He says, Indeed, my Lord is gentle with whom He wills us. We sang my Lord is gentle. Latif, subtle, with whom He wills. Me being in the world. My lord was gentle with me, me being in the slave market. My lord was gentle with me, me being transported as a slave out of Egypt. He was gentle with me, me being bought as a slave. He was gentle with me, me
being tested by the minister's wife, he was subtle and gentle with me, me being then tested with the women of Egypt. He was settled and gentle with me, me being left in the prison. He was subtle and gentle me. Why is he saying this, because he has the whole picture now. No more pixels. You can see the whole picture. He's has the whole picture with him for 40 to 50 years, he collected the pixels, the pixels without the families together, they're no more hungry. They don't know I have any security issues use of has managed the storage houses in an amazing way. Millions of people have survived. Egypt is about to come out of the drought and they're going to come out of it safely
because of his leadership after the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah's decree and and and we can go on and on and on and on counting the blessings Subhanallah
he's saying at the end in the rubble of evil Lima Russia.
But then he says something that goes back to day one, in the who who will ally will Hakeem in the My Lord is named the omniscient and Hakeem the All Wise, who taught us of Allah. He said, I'm this. His father, when you sort of mentioned to him his dream. Remember when his father said, what are their early career Jetta B car or Bukola you were only mukha me. We had these. Are you Team Mooney? matovu RNA Come on. Urla Annie scuba comm
weaker Ibrahima is happy in Rob burka, Riley Moon Heike hacky him.
So as I said to him, My dear son, this how Allah is going to complete his favor on
upon you is going to complete his favor upon you. Please favor over you.
This how Allah is going to choose you. He's going to put you through the test. We're going to put you through the dryer and through it is going to complete his favor over you.
And upon the family of Iacob. Like Allah completed it upon the family of your forefathers, Ibrahim and is Huck obviously is hot because he's happy is the grandfather. But Ibrahim had another son is married. And Allah has faith in composting as well.
Hola Amin Halle, or hola Amina I live when I'm in Haleem means it's very well I mean, it means is Huck.
Then his father said in Arabic Hollywood Hakeem, indeed your Lord is the Omniscient, the knowledgeable one, Hakim, the wise one. And here use of is saying it back to his father.
He's saying this father in the whole will him indeed you told me my Lord is is again indeed holiday you will help him Indeed he is the omniscient and the always refer to it anemia multiwire limted him into Willette ahaadeeth. Again, he teaches us never forget Allah never forget Allah never forget Allah he says oh my lord tieton immunol mercu brought to me power sovereignty you wrote to me the ability to rule will never turn him into will Allah Hadith. You taught me the interpretation of events and dreams. In the verse I just decided to do you or your family will commit that will in a hadith. Allah will teach you the interpretation of events.
Here, he's mentioning to Allah He sang
King Allah, that you completed your favor upon me and you taught me the interpretation of events further somehow it will out. You are indeed the Originator of the heavens and the earth and to leave it dunya and akhira You are my guardian in protecting this life and the next telephony Muslim man La Ilaha illa Allah
Subhana Allah they were funny Muslim and well how can you be slightly him? After all of this? He says, Yeah, Allah caused me to die as a muslim.
Well, how can you be sila Hain and connect me in the Hereafter with the righteous?
What do you think of this? What do you think of this servant of Allah and no child of Adam? What do you think of this? After all of this history making dua to Allah cause me to die as a believer? That He Allah don't make me disbelieve after believing. Don't make me ungrateful after being grateful we living in ease now don't let this EAS be a means of taking me further away from you. Yeah Allah.
Never forget Allah. There how Allah Allah Who at a level that there is no power no matter except
from Allah. Allah says Daddy come in and bear in the baby no he he unique Allah number of us to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah says to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is from the use of the unseen that we revealed to Muhammad Womack Quintella de hematology Maru Amira whom you are not with them when they gathered, when did they gather
it as well I'm Rama Holmium Quran when did they gather
at the beginning of the story, when they gathered and said, We need to kill us off and someone said don't kill him throw him into the bottom of a well, Allah is telling Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we revealed to you this O Muhammad from the unseen you are not with the brothers when they gathered. When they were planning to kill us of it. He said Well, what we are revealing to you is from the unseen, so that those hearing it know that you are a prophet sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala you couldn't have known this unless Allah revealed it to you.
And by the way, in the Old Testament,
the story of Yusuf has many details, many details, but Subhanallah there's details in the Quran that we have that don't exist.
Which means no one can see Muhammad got it from the Old Testament.
Through this story, Allah is proving Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam as the messenger of ALLAH
SubhanA Subhan Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says WOMAC thoroughness will help us to be when we need Allah says most people will not believe no matter how keen you are for them to believe.
His remember we said when was the story revealed this surah was revealed during the most difficult period in life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he lost his wife, he lost a polyp, they came out of being sanctioned. This was the year of sorrow this was even called the year of sorrow. Again, going back to natural human tendencies, you are allowed to feel sad. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam felt sad that year was called the year of sorrow. Allah revealed Surah Yusuf
because the Prophet is trying and he's going through all this difficulty and he knows that I'm trying to take these people to Jannah why are they harming me when I'm only wanting to do good to them? I only want to save them from the hellfire and the sanctioning me and beating my Muslims and stopping us stopping us from trade and from purchasing food and drink and so on and so forth.
They are harming me just because I'm trying to save them from the hellfire.
And this is to stress the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
for Latin America Burfield necec Allah 3011 will be headed Hadith eSFR we read this in the Quran. Allah says that perhaps you're going to destroy yourself. Maybe you will destroy yourself because of this, this inner desire this innate will that you have for the guidance prophets of Allah Harrison was sincere Allah. He loved us sincerely. He did this work sincerely. He sincerely wanted to save people from the hellfire and people were fighting him for it. So he would go back to his quarters and he would complain to Allah about show Allah his deep desire for the people and ask Allah His help, to help him help them.
Allah is telling His Messenger Most people will not believe in Muhammad no matter how much you want them to.
No matter how keen you are, most won't Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Huh? This is is from Allah to His messenger.
Allah is revealing Surah Yusuf.
Because think about it. Look at the parallels. So the use of use was brothers did this to him in the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam his own tribe is doing it's this team. And the tribe was was your unit.
Your unit was your tribe, somebody messed with you? They mess with the tribe. And he came from the most powerful tribe. The Quraysh. No joke, huh.
Those are his people. There's parallels here.
Use of his blood did what they did to him.
Allah is saying to the messenger, your bloods doing what they're doing to you as well. But take guidance from what happened to us
and how Allah ultimately controls everything
in the end, so Allah is plan.
Those who are meant for the Hellfire will get there. And those are meant for Paradise. We'll get there and everyone will have the road and have the way and have the journey. Okay, we need you saying we need to end
yeah is the end. Let me end the rest of the verse is ALLAH SubhanA where the rest of the the soul chapter it Allah subhanho wa Taala
meaning revealing to us who writes and the truth.
So please do read it. And all of the Quran is the truth. But one thing I want to share with you that we have to share we can't answer the use of before sharing this.
And I always share it at the end. In the story of use of it's famous for a dream that happened at the beginning and the manifestation of the dream at the end.
In the end, we saw or in the beginning we saw there was a sun there was a moon and there were 11 stars. At the end we saw
Yaqoob his wife and his sons, the dream, the sun, the moon and the stars are bowing bowing down to Yusuf in the end, Dr. Kolb, his wife and the brothers were bowing down to use of now according to one tafseer
the moon in the dream represented the mother, the son in the dream represented the father and the brothers. Sorry, meaning the stars in the dream represented
and if you ponder over this, may Allah bless our scholars, if you ponder over this, you see lessons, a sociology lesson from Surah Yusuf.
When you think of the sun, you think of it being bright. Correct? It's bright, Masha, Allah Tabata Kala, when it's out, people feel happy. People feel safe. When it's out. People go to work. And so when it's out, photosynthesis happens. Convection rainfall happens. It needs the sun, convection rainfall needs the sun. Go back to your secondary school education. Right? Photosynthesis leaves the sun, right? A lot of work happens a lot of progress happens a lot. Productivity happens when the sun is out. Right? When the sun is out, the stars are there, but you can't see them. Because the presence of the sun
is strong. is right. Think of a father in the home.
When a father is in the home, this earning that should happen. There's bills that are paid. People feel safe. The children feel safe when dad is at home. They feel a bit scared when Daddy leaves home. Not so it happens. It happens. Right? It happens sometimes you leave in your son one of your sons will have trouble sleeping can happen because you're not there.
When the father is at home, there's the sense of safety, financial safety, right security. Things are happening. The home is running. When the father is at home. The children are there. But are they always with him? Are they most mostly with the mother? They there but they're not always with him. Right? Because he's out he's in his out he's in his productive, right. That's the relationship between the Son and the Father. The moon represents the mother. The moon is beautiful. It's bright, but it's serene. You can look at it. When you look at it. You can stare at it can you stare at the sun? You can your eyes get hurt right?
But the moon you can stare at it sometimes Allah beautifully radiant, the brighter the sun, the brighter the mood.
The brighter the sun, the brighter the moon. When the moon is out we have the stars
everywhere. And the brighter the moon how brighter the stars
the brighter, the twinkling more you see a bright moonlight night you see the stars twinkling Subhanallah
whereas the moon get the light from the Sun Subhanallah
the stronger the father, the more effective the husband is, the more stronger and effective the mother is. If the husband treats his wife Well, she will shine and if she shines well. The stars will shine. The children will shine. You see the parallel? Yeah, Masha Allah, Masha, Allah Subhana Allah. Okay, what happens if the sun wants to be the moon one day, and the moon wants to be the sun one day.
What do you get? Eclipse I sent you get an eclipse. You get an eclipse.
And when an eclipse happens
The strength of the Sun is weakened and the strength of the moon is weakened
and the stars are nowhere to be seen. You get a solar eclipse so you get a lunar eclipse depending whether the ways in the day or the night
What happens in the home when the mother wants to be the father and the father wants to be the mother?
You get any clips. You heard my Instagram when someone cut it from my Surah use from Begawan mashallah
you get an eclipse, but especially Eclipse is called the Social Eclipse. And when especially eclipse happens, and the mother and father are at war with each other, the role of the father isn't strong or felt the role of the mother isn't stronger felt and the children suffer the most.
And that's a wrap. So the use of in the 21st century
Subhanallah that even at the end it's giving us any bomb blasts of of lessons of Hello.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, I introduce you to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the book of Allah. This is the Quran
and this was our objective with our series to connect with the Quran.
Yes, my time with you has come to an end. But Ramadan hasn't come to an end. And yes, Ramadan will come to an end.
But Allah is Allah Allah Allah.
Allah is the EverLiving Who never dies. Do not let the connection we've created with the Quran. This Ramadan, become history after Ramadan, or Juke. I'm begging you. I'm begging you. And take this from the heart of a brother to my brothers and sisters.
Like I said, subhanAllah and I sit and think about this, it's all life is always this balancing. You have the utmost needs, you have your family hamdulillah Allah bless my family, bless my parents, they always push me to go into the path.
But you sit and say subhanallah how many events have I missed?
In my children's lives,
in the life of my wife, the life of my parents.
To be with my brothers and sisters who I love for the sake of Allah Allah Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
But then you think to yourself, Subhan Allah, it's a cost. It's a price that you pay. I can tell you now this Ramadan,
I have to share with the brothers some events that happened in with with my family, and I'm not there. But I sent her a cake.
I sent her a cake, a love letter, she passed an exam.
But I would have loved to be there.
Because it's one of those difficult things to pass.
Right? My son also went through a milestone, I would have loved to be there.
But I wasn't.
And you sit back and you say to yourself, What will make it worthwhile? You know what will make it worth mine? My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam.
You all becoming a sadaqa jariya for me, for my parents, for my family for my teachers. Definitely my teachers, because they also had to invest with Allah be away from the family so that they could teach me
that is the best advice you can give.
Allah Hey, I appreciate your love. I appreciate your care and I appreciate your smiles and mashallah brother was saying Subhanallah Today's a very difficult day. Your your departure is hard just like Allah here would lie. And what Allah He it's hard for me as well. And Allah knows the gulp that I'm
I'm keeping down.
But what Allah he will be lucky with Allah who you can honor me
by putting Allah's book in front of everything Kitab Allah, cobbler coalition,
or Athena coalition, whereby that coalition, the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala has to be before everything, and during everything. And after everything, please or JUCO do not put the book of Allah on a shelf after Ramadan, read it, memorize what you can from it, listen to it, ponder over it. I shared with our sisters, a three point plan to connect with the Quran. The video is on my YouTube channel. How to connect with the Quran. Watch that video, the basic level, a level that every Muslim can even a seven or eight year old can anyone who can discern between right and wrong can connect with the Quran like this. Maybe watch it with your kids and come up with an action plan with them so
you can nurture them to have this relationship with the Quran. But please, this is the best gift you can give me this Ramadan in my life.
Every book My dear brother and sister is who you know, comes in our lives and lives when we were in school. We got the books, history, math, science, geography, French Latin. Yeah, I didn't Latin as well Longstaff
books and books and books. And then when we finished that here, we either get
Give those books away, or we pack them in a box or we recycle them. Every book comes into your life and leaves your life except one book.
Except one book, the book of Allah subhanho, Atal Kitab Allah. It is the book that is on top of all the books and it's the book that will always be with us. And if you're good with it, it will be with you in your grave. It will be a light in your grave and it will defend you on the Day of day. It will drive you to Allah aiding you to go to gym.
I leave you with these words My dearest Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Everything correct said in our series is from Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and he's perfect. Any mistakes from myself and share a plan I seek Allah subhanho wa taala. So given us, may Allah cause us to live by the injunctions of the Quran, and they open the junctions of the Quran. We want to make us from the family of Al Quran. And Allah raises with the family of our Quran. May Allah accept our Ramadan, except our standing except our fasting, except our charity, except our recitation of his book, may Allah forgive all our sins. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us to have witnessed the night of
power in decree and virtually if it indeed has passed, and if it is to come, may Allah inspire us to keep at it, keep searching for it, and grant us that night and honest with the rewards of that night. May Allah writers from amongst those freed from the hellfire, and may Allah make us entered the day of lead as people of Taqwa from the family of a Taqwa from the successful ones. And we Allah subhanho wa Taala preservers in our in his obedience and bring to us many, many, many many Ramadan's was upon good health and upon good faith mean era let me just go ahead and have that was
