matters of heart and the science of Quran. The surah is literally drenched in lessons.
Allah subhanaw taala says the meaning of riches in the stories, there's a lesson for the people imbued with understanding.

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, my dear mothers and fathers Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu.
Indeed all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, and we seek his assistance, and we seek His guidance to Hannah who was the era and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evils of ourselves and the adverse consequences of our deeds. Whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon the noncom misguide him, and whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah decrease misguidance upon the man can guide him and peace and salutations be upon the final messenger. Our beloved Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah subhanho wa Taala gathers with him in Jannah
are servants of Allah,
and our children of Adam.
Indeed, all praises belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala. For he has gathered us here together in a blessed gathering, a gathering that has come together to learn the most noblest of knowledge, a gathering that has come together to study a surah from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, Al Quran and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about this gathering much tamakoshi beighton min booty la heeta Allah yet Luna kita Bella, we're here today rasuna who FEMA Bina home
inland desolate la he was Sakina Was she a tumor Rama will have a tumor Malaika was a Corolla with him and he says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the mid 30s. So he did not no group of people come together in a house from the houses of Allah yet Luna Kitab Allah to read Allah subhanho wa Taala Ella's book. We're here today rasuna who FEMA baina home and they study his books of Hannah who were to Allah between them, except that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah showered upon them blessings from these blessings is that content Mint is caused to descend upon them and from these blessings is that Allah subhanho wa Taala causes them to be engulfed in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And from
these blessings is that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah causes angels to surround this gathering and from these blessings is that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah mentions the people of this gathering with those that are with Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, meaning the angels imagine Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioning us specifically to those that are with Allah subhanho wa Taala and what an amazing prize. This is now a mammoth show Can you hashmatullah here LA. He says that these blessings are not specific to those who study this in the masjid Allah. Raja Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the masjid because the norm was that education would happen in the massages. But the
benefits of this hadith apply to any gathering that comes together to learn from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala that come to learn from the inheritance of Muhammad Ali Abdullah Saleh Allahu alayhi wa sallam and our share Sadie Bonanza 300 Allah He says that this hadith
also includes those who study online who study the subject matter online because this is
excuse my clearing of the voice. We spoke a lot over the last few days on Islamic finance. And your questions were even more than what we discussed. Mashallah, so it's good any time as a couple okay, but it was very enjoyable by the way vertical Alfie Kohn for the opportunity to teach this course to kalama and to you all for attending the program.
So our chef says that today, learning takes place online. We have virtual classrooms, we have virtual classrooms, like we have with knowledge International University, our university Mashallah that Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed us to be a part of and
On and many of you are students there as well. So he says, Have you the law, that these blessings also apply to those who study the inheritance of Hamas salallahu alayhi wasallam online. The essence behind all this is understand the reality of the gathering that you are in right now. Don't take this gathering as a trivial one. Don't take this gathering as a Normal University lecture that we attend that we sit and
enjoy. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it enjoyable. Now, understand the reality, there is a greater substance behind you leaving your home and coming here, there's a greater substance and because the substance is so great, the price is great. And we know that LG has a vengeance 11 that the price is based on the effort exerted in management they say reward is proportional to effort.
reward is proportional to effort. And the shittier we say altruism engines lambda, the rewards, the rewards, the true rewards, not the monetary rewards, the rewards are also equivalent to the reality of the efforts. So this is the effort that you are engaged in right now. So never ever forget this. My dear brothers and sisters and thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for inspiring us to be here for inspiring us to be here. Many people heard about this particular program, but were not inspired to be here. Many people heard about it, but we're not inspired to be and some people didn't hear about it until the last minute. And Allah subhanho wa Taala inspired them to
to attend these are from the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he increases for us. So indeed, all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. My dear brothers and sisters, we are or have come together to learn from Surah Yusuf and surah Yusuf is a beloved surah to myself, as is all the sewer in the Quran. This surah has a special attachment because I've been researching it since 2006. I've been researching it since 2006. So there's many benefits that I've come across from the writings of the scholars, many personal experiences myself that I have come across that will be shared with you during our sessions together. And Allah has blessed me to teach the surah on an
international platform, I've traveled to many countries teaching it as well. And I can promise you that every time I teach it, there's some new lesson that I gather from it and share with the crowd This is how amazing the Quran is. We always derive from the secrets of the Quran as Allah subhanho wa Taala unlocked our hearts to it magnanimous lessons that have a high level of impact in our lives. So this is the Quran and this is what inshallah my objective is from our weekend together is to highlight to you how applicable the Quran is in our lives and how the grind is not a book that's really read. But the essence behind it revelation is that as we had our brother sell man, when he
introduced this program to you say the Quran was revealed for the double Kitab Bonanza Allahu alayka. Mubarak and Leah de baru it was the attacker Allah Al Bab, a blessing Book which We have revealed to you, oh, Mohammed, why, so that they may ponder over it as ponder the devil when he attacked Kuru Al Bab and so that those of understanding will remember. So yes, we must read the Quran. And yes, we must listen to it.
And yes, we must memorize it. But the essence behind it must play the major part in our lives. And that essence is the bore and pondering over the lessons here.
What is the double, the dark blue is unlocking the secrets of the eye through pondering over the eye.
Understanding the eye or from different angles.
As the scholars say the Quran has secrets behind it. And the secrets are unlocked to those that Allah subhanho wa Taala wills. And this is the essence of this course brothers and sisters, I know. It's loosely said that we're going to be doing a Tafseer of surah Yusuf, but I don't want to call it the Tafseer of surah Yusuf it is a type of Tafseer it can be called seed, but I want to highlight it being two days together where we ponder over the lessons behind the ayah in Surah Yusuf and this is what we will do with illa hytera. Yes, we are some portions that are Tafseer heavy, so that you have a feel of what the scholars are how the scholars have to deal with the text, but it's a sort of
coming together of what all the scholars have to say and some scholars do this tafsir de Buri, where they actually extrapolate and extrapolate and you see that the Quran is
Depending on where it's read, gives you an understanding. So Pamela, I've read surah Yusuf in the plane. And my understanding behind some is have never been understood by myself when I've read it on the ground. And I'm sure yesterday when I scuba dive divided underwater, I would have deduced lessons that I wouldn't have deduced reading it on the Quran. It's not like a book that you read and you've read it and you put away the Quran is a blessing book.
Every time you read it in something new, you look forward to starting it again. Because what is Allah going to teach me during this recitation? For those who ponder, so this is what we're going to be doing. inshallah, you can see how, even without losing my voice, I'm still here to teach you that don't ever give up the opportunity to teach this particular surah and matters of the Quran is always Beloved, trust me, Allah subhanho wa Taala raised us with the family of alcohol and piano, I mean, now normally during these courses, I like to move around. It's not like the fifth course, that we did earlier. For those who've attended to the use of with me, I'm, I'm moving around on stage and
into the crowd. And it has to work that way. Because the Quran brings out different emotions, but I've been asked to stay put, because of that camera. So I will be sitting in sha Allah, but inshallah we'll still try. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to keep you all energetic. My dear brothers and sisters, first things first, we just said how blessed this gathering is. Thus, at this juncture, before we start dealing with the surah, we must talk about intention, we must speak about intention, that you've all come here and you will walk away at the end of our time together, having truly benefited truly benefited. I'm not talking about having ascertain some form of knowledge or
ascertain to panela how amazing the Quran is. And inshallah Allah will give you this understanding, I'm talking about benefit in its totality. And that starts or that is a package that includes in it as building our agenda from the time we leave our home, till the time we get back.
And as making our scales of good deeds heavy on the piano, from the time we leave home till the time we go back.
This is it has to be included in the package. We are engaged in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
This is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I didn't ask you for because of time, but I'm pretty sure through experience, I'm pretty sure I would have got the same answers here. If I asked you why did you come you say to learn about surah Yusuf, someone will say to understand the for animal, someone will say to help me with Arabic language.
It will revolve around the theme of learning. I want to take you beyond that theme. and say,
You are not here to learn primarily. You are here to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the objective behind you being here. The means to attaining that objective is education through the study of the Quran, that's the means to an end. What's the end of Allah subhanho wa Taala for his pleasure. There's a difference, if you here to learn. It's not a pure intention.
It's pure, it's Noble.
But let's make it pure. Let's say I'm here for the sake of Allah.
I'm engaged in worship. How have I engaged in worship, through the study of surah Yusuf? Is this clear? So purify your intentions, my dear brothers and sisters, purify them? Allah says, Allah qumola at bigger countries of Allied Allah subhanho wa Taala will teach you. So live for Allah subhanho wa Taala. Live for him. Make everything for the sake of Allah. Never, ever do any act and make that act and end in and of itself. Every act should be a means to an end. What's the end, the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is important. My dear brothers and sisters, as I said, we're going to be going through this is from the pillar or
worldview of the book. And we will take an extrapolate lessons. Write down what you can, but I don't want you to become lost quote unquote in translation, where you try to write down and we move forward to other lessons. And then because you're writing one, you missed two or three and then catch up with me on the fourth. I would prefer for you to focus, seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you open your hearts and
absorb as much as you can absorb as much as you can. Try and follow through absorption inshallah, when you read the surah yourself afterwards, realities will come to light from that which you've absorbed, meaning what you've learned.
Insha Allah you will remember as the brothers are saying, inshallah, you will have material recorded material to ascertain that which you might have lost so, I want you to focus so we take maximum benefit because the law he is the law he exactly everybody any questions thus far?
Surely they can because that's a good teacher I am
not I'm joking. inshallah Allah will will grant us steadfastness and bless us with the ability to say a good word inshallah. inshallah. Bye
