Allah subhanho wa Taala says national Naka su La Casa La Casa La Casa La sent us.
Allah subhanahu at the NSA is we
revealed to you the best of all stories are some
of us, revealed to you the best of all stories.
why is pseudo use of described as the best of all stories?
The scholars say
or they mentioned three points the first point is because the story is an entire madrasa
of life and entire school in terms of life's lessons, it's a school for parents. It's a school for education. It's a school for manners and morals and etiquettes It's a school for religion, etc, etc, etc. It's a school for how to be a sibling. It's a school for how to
go through adversity is an entire school.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Yousuf and his brothers are Signs for those who just ask. I asked Lisa Elliott, for those who just ask an entire school. It's an entire school. That's why it's the best of all stories.
And Rahim Allah says that sudo use of has 1000 benefits in it. If only he left for us those 1000 benefits. But he said he has found 1000 benefits inshallah today we'll get close to it with the light that and tomorrow with the law. How many benefits have we taken thus far? From just Elif? lamora, tilaka is lucky to have her movie
by him. So this is the first point they say because because it covers all spheres of life. Point number two, they say because the entire surah consists of the story of one Prophet and his life. We don't have this in the Quran.
And use of is mentioned in another part of the Quran but not as as a story. Right? The story of Musa exists in different parts of the Quran, this is a dedicated surah to just one prophet. In fact, we have others who are named after prophets. But it doesn't mean that that surah discusses the entire life of the prophet like surah, Mohamed, Ibrahim, and so on and so forth.
They also say because surah Yusuf is not fictional. That's why it's the best of all stories. It's the real deal. It's the real deal.
What happened? You might think, Subhana Allah, can a human being? Or can anyone in their life go through this? And the answer to that is yes, they did. And it's not fictional. It's true. That's why it's the best of all stories. Now, when we look at the scholars of literature, their description of the best story
is as follows. Number one, it should have a strong theme.
The sooner you still have a strong theme, let's benchmark so the use of against what the scholars of literature describe as a best story, they say should have a strong theme. So the use of has a strong theme. They say the best story should have a fascinating plot and conflict and resolution. The pseudo use of not have a fascinating plots, and conflict and resolution. Yes, it has. In fact, it has many fascinating plots, not just the brother plotting but even the minister's wife plotting Subhanallah it has more than one fascinating plot in it. So even according to them, it's the best of all stories then they say the scholars have literature from the best of all stories should have a
fitting structure, a fitting structure, the beginning of the story should jump right into action, and the ending of the story should wind up quickly. The pseudo use of that jump into action does a loss of Hello dad as a one fine day when the sun rose at this many degrees with this many light on a Tuesday use of woke up rubbing his eyes in his pajamas on his bed with this quality delay now, now it jumps straight right in his collar usefully Abby immediately you woken up when you said to his father, hold on, hold on, hold on. Okay, I'm focused. I'm caught I'm in when you said that's how the story starts.
That's how it starts. National La Casa La Casa La Casa. We met Elena in a Gavin Quran when confirming company in the middle of aphelion by him What comes after it's called the use of the Avi that's the beginning. When use of said to his father all my father I saw this dream. That's how the story starts the pseudo use of that jumped into action.
Your attention spans, they say even according to them, it's the best of all stories. And how's the ending? Does it not wind up quickly? It does as we will see below
the say the scholars of literature from the best of stories is that the story should have unforgettable characters.
Anyone studying literature here?
Mashallah, did they teach you this? Hamza, you learning about literature in this class? Allahu Akbar, you see the Quran. Mashallah Allah there you go inshallah you get an A plus in the exam right these points, if they and right at the bottom where you got it from, by you.
They say it should have unforgettable characters.
It has unforgettable characters by Allah It does. It has the APU Who can forget him, it has use of Who can forget him. He has the brothers of use of Who can forget them. It has the people of the caravan Who can forget them. It has the minister and his wife who can forget them. It has the women's of the city of Egypt who can forget them. It has the characters in the prison who use of give that power to Who can forget them. It has the king who can forget him.
Remember all these characters, unforgettable characters, unforgettable characters, they say that the story should have a well chosen setting. For a story to be good, it should have a well chosen setting time What better setting than Can you have
besides the two greatest civilizations that the Earth has seen Palestine and Egypt the oldest civilizations jacoba Salah was from a place called canal which was Palestine as we will inshallah share and use it was transferred from there to Egypt, these are the oldest civilizations on Earth, can you beat this setting?
Absolutely not. So they say you should have a well chosen setting, they say it should have an appealing style. And yes, so the use of appeals to us and they say a good story. A good story should be one which touches people in some way by Allah so the use of will touch you in every way.
You will tell me this tomorrow.
A good story should create vivid images in our minds. You want to dream about surah Yusuf tonight inshallah.
You're going to have vivid images, inshallah.
And it's a story. A good story is a story that one loves and loves to tell. And people love to hear La ilaha illAllah Why are you all here? Why am I here? I love to tell the story. And you are here because you love to hear the story. Even in Surah the Imam read surah Yusuf, we don't understand it, but we feel like our horseshoe Today was a jeep. We had a very high feeling in our Salah. Why? Because remember, it's super useful. Mashallah, did you understand anything? No. But here's what I use. We love to hear it even in the Arabic language in the Arabic language. So these are from the reasons why the Quran or the story is the best of all stories at this kind of say Allah subhanho wa
Taala meant here that the Quranic stories are the best of both worlds not solid, meaning every story we tell you is from the best of all stories, and this is no doubt. All the stories of the Quran are from the best of all stories. Now we learn valuable lessons from this.
We learn from this, the value of learning history, and heating, its numerous lessons. Don't we learn this? When Allah reveals the best of all stories to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, at the most difficult point in his life. Don't you learn? Allah is telling him, let me take you back in time.
Let me calm you down. And ease your fears and pains. By taking you back in time. Let me tell you about another prophet who walk the earth before you are to Yaqoob and Yusuf.
We're not here to be entertained. Remember, we said we're going to do what do we learn from how Allah revealed him at this time the story that we should be people who study history, history is important. And learn from the mistakes because you are a human being and they were human beings. Learn from it. Take heed from the numerous lessons
and many is in the Quran. reiterate this concept. reiterate, Allah subhanho wa sallam through the use of will tell us just now or towards the end indeed, in their stories is a lesson for those of understanding. Allah tells us in Surah Yusuf, that in their stories, and in history, our lessons for those of understanding who ponder they don't need to pass an exam. They just memorize dates and names and who did what and when and how and helaas know, they have more substance to the application. They think Subhanallah Look how it was done. If it happened, like
Then this is how it can be now. You see how how the Quran nurtures us. This is why the Quran can bring you up.
It can bring you up it can be, it's the greatest parent to you, if you just pointed over it, and Allah unlocked your hearts to its greatest secrets. What also teaches us how important history is in our lives? is the fact that Allah subhana wa, ala or surah in the Quran have been named after historical events? They are they are 30 sutras in the Quran that have historically related names. Have you heard of Surah Baqarah
was not related. Its name is its name, not based on some point in something that happened in history when they were when Israel was told to slaughter that Baqarah. So Surah Baqarah is called Baqarah that learn from what happened to them learn from that piece of history, that they asked useless questions. And every time we use this question was asked, they made things more difficult for themselves.
They were stubborn, and every time they were stubborn matters big learn from them. Surah Baqarah, entire surah
two and a half Jews,
but it's called to the Bukhara based on this historical moment that is cited in Surah Baqarah Surah Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda. It's a big surah Where is named Merida because of those who asked he said he said for a lot to send a banquet from the sky to them.
So Pamela, they asked they wanted signs and medical evidence to believe so they said tell us what to send us a banquet full laid out platter.
Five course meal or I don't know what today seven course.
So it's called Matt ADA. So you learn from history. So let's recap. It's a long Surah Surah cough has magnanimous lessons perhaps that can be our next see we already pitching to kaleva so they invite us again.
Now Mashallah the invites are continuous as a chef brother and the brother said, Allah bless them. That's a good thought in me and asked him also Hello data to make me wealthy. But the thing is, Soraka is filled with magnanimous lessons. But it's called karma from a historical moment that's mentioned in in the surah. So learn from history brothers and sisters, go home, buy history books, read, or watch those channels that relate to you. historical events, I think there's something called the History Channel, Allahu Allah. Right? Right. Learn from it, it's not boring.
It's life changing. Learn from it and take these men take these lessons and Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah knows best by Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we're including communicably laminal affiliate, this ayah we're in quantum in Kabbalah, a lemon aloha affiliate, which means indeed, before this revelation of the story came to you, you are from the ignorant, you didn't know not the ignorant as those who are misguided now, you are from the unaware. This is important. We should always translate the Quran appropriately, appropriately. Ignorant doesn't mean misguided. It means unaware. Right? It's important sometimes we misinterpret for example, Allah subhanho wa Taala says well, agenda
cabal lanpher Haida, right, that we found you, bol. Now, bol in Arabic language can be translated as misguided and this is its common use. But was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam misguided? No, he never worshipped items. He never engaged in the practices of the Quran. So the correct translation here is not upon complete guidance. Because he didn't know how to worship Allah for Haida and we taught you how allowance to be worshipped so you could worship him properly. He's to go to the cave of Hira and ponder and contemplate and worship in his own way. He didn't agree with those practices, but he didn't know how allowance to be worshipped. So he wasn't upon complete guidance and for
We taught you how to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Allah Subhana Allah says we're in condemning company, let me know how you're feeling. Let me know how you're feeling that you before this, you are from the unaware. So this ayah affirms What if you ponder over it, then Obu of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that they were trying to test his prophethood and this ayah affirms his prophethood
that yes, they are asking you about something you don't know. And now you're going to know we're going to reveal to you the best of all stories, and you're going to prove them wrong. You're going to prove to them that indeed you are a prophet. So this is the new Booyah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, by then Allah Subhana who has
Dad says and I think for this idea we might end up discussing it till the end of the day just this I am number five to be honest and I am number six to be honest so panela
because that the De Boer in this is a Jeep is a jeep and I don't know whether to start it now or not and I don't think I should because then there'll be an interruption there will be an interruption but let's take the touchy part of it. And then after the break we'll go into the web the light Allah is that okay, inshallah. inshallah so inshallah No. Shall as by as I always tell the brothers there's two types of genres nowadays. nowadays there's two types. When you tell someone you come in he says, shall I ask? Yes or No, because this is from the mother and father lamella. Now it's become inshallah could mean yes or no.
So ask is that the Yes or no? So I know.
So I know K and o w not No. Is it yes or no? No. So I know K and o w. By Allah subhanahu adelitas is in use. If Carla Yusuf who is used to Valley celeb use Valley celeb, his use of even Yaqoob even his hack, even Ibrahim use of the son of Yaqoob, who was the son of his hack, who was the son of Ibrahim alayhis, Salam.
This is who use of is La ilaha illa Allah and in Sahih al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim upon the narration of Abu huraira howdy Allah and he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked, Who is the most honorable of people, so he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the most honorable of you is the one with the most taqwa in the academic community, the law has gotten.
So the person replied and said, No, I'm not asking you about that. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, the most honored of you
are the most honored is Yusuf alayhi salam, because he was a prophet, who is the son of a prophet who was the son of a prophet who was the son of a prophet.
He was a prophet, the son of a property, I hope, who was the son of a prophet is Huck, who was the son of a Prophet Ibrahim, and he set up
Amazing, amazing lineage. Right. And for your information, Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam had how many cents
by So, coming back to this Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and how many cents to his mind and his heart. Some say it's very it was given to Ibrahim Alayhi Salam when he was 90 years old. And his heart was given to him when he was 100 years old.
So he had two sons. Now, all the prophets
after these two sons are from these two sons, so Pamela, every prophet,
after these two sons is from these two sons, every prophet who came after them, goes back to Ibrahim alayhi salam to his son his hack through his son is how except Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who goes back to Abraham and he Salah via his son is very rarely he Salah
is married and he Salah,
the father of the Arabs, so this is a point for you all to understand the lineage of use of Allah His Salah Ibrahim had two sons, his melodies hack, all profits after them go back to Abraham and Sarah
via these two sons.
All the profits go back to Ibrahim via his half, except one who was Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who goes back to Ibrahim via it's very rarely his salah
and the all the Ambien la Masato Salah so Yusuf Ali Salam Look at his lineage. What a noble lineage imagine having a lineage where you're a son of a prophet who was the son of a prophet who was the son of a player, and your great grandfather was titled Hari Rama, Ibrahim alayhis salam.
Excuse me, brothers, I need to drink something. I'm sorry, I don't have more to offer you or
if I if this cup would fit, we would share.
As I told you, I lost my voice in the UK. And we've been recovering slowly but surely will help.
But when your voice is your assets, when your voice is your asset,
then you can't allow it time to recover.
Because for the voice to recover, you have to keep quiet. I don't speak sign language as the sister said, the universal language. I can't come and teach you in sign language by so Yusuf Alayhi Salam brothers and sisters. He had noble lineage in another generation
imported by arugula and it's also founded Buhari. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah Karim Ibn Al Karim Ibn Al Karim Abdel Karim, the Honorable or noble who was the son of the noble one who was the son of the noble one who was the son of the noble one, La Ilaha, Illallah La la la la. So this is important idea, brothers and sisters, this is extremely important to understand the reality of the person whose life we are going to study together over the course of today. And over the course of tomorrow, we'll be late. And over the course of today, and over the course of tomorrow, be in LA, to LA in LA, to LA one point I want to mention here before we break, and that is
identity. Today, we always hear this term identity crisis, or what is your identity? Or you're a Muslim, such and such, why you are such an such Muslim? Or are you straight? Or are you crooked.
There's an identity crisis. Here we see, use valleys and I'm having no crisis with in terms of his identity, he knows who he is. I'm a Muslim, I'm a believer. And my father was a prophet, and he was the son of a prophet, and he was the son of a prophet, this is my lineage, I have no issues regarding who I am, and what I am, and what are my values and this is will be, it will become manifest and will be shown to you, as we traverse through the ayat in Surah Yusuf and cover his life in a bit more detail in a bit more detail. So as we traverse through the story, you will see use of either his celeb, knowing his values and always remaining upon his values, never have a doubting
himself, never ever doubting who he is, and what how he should practice this will be made manifest. And this is how we should all be because brothers and sisters, whenever we lose our values, we've lost everything. You have to understand this. The moment you lose your value. You've lost everything.
Because you've lost who you are, you have lost your identity.
When you lose your values, these values define you, they identify you, and inshallah we will learn the importance of having an identity and identity from the story of Musa alayhis salam. So use of Elisa Lam tells his father his use of the Abbey. Yeah, Betty in New York at the actual acaba was shumsa will camara are at home. Lisa GD
Kalia been a toxic, Erica and aquaticus Yaki do like a Qaeda in the share of insanity, I do mobile. So this is I am number four, as you see in front of you. So basically use of Allah He says he is informing his father about a dream. So it's appropriate that we discuss a little bit about dreams. What do you say? Let's discuss it a little bit about dreams because he's narrating a dream to his father. And we know that sort of use of is the story of dreams. It's a story of dreams. So insha Allah in the remaining moments, let's take this lesson. When we come back we'll deal with the ayah with a bit more focus first, the brothers and sisters, dreams are three types. Dreams are three
types. As taught to us by the caliber of the Sharia, the first dream or first type of dream is known as a divine dream. And this dream is of two types itself.
One is a true dream and the other is a good dream. So dreams are of three types. The first dream is a define dream. And a divine dream is of two types. The first type is a true dream. And the second type is a good dream.
The second type of dream is a satanic dream.
And the third type of dream is human dreams. Human dreams. inshallah we'll discuss this in a little bit more detail. Now, with regards to dreams, brothers and sisters.
We need to understand that
or the Sharia teaches us that in in terms of dreams being true in our life, then this is associated to our honesty as human beings, as our honesty as human beings. This is what the scholars have cited
dreams is a part of prophethood is a part of prophethood Abu hurayrah Allah what he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there are three types of dreams a righteous dream, which is a glad tiding from Allah, and the dream which causes sadness. And this is from sharepad at a dream from the ramblings of the mind, and this is in Sahih Muslim and this is where we get the classification of dreams from the classification I shared with you is from this heading.
He says, You have dreams which are glad tidings from Allah.
And you have a dream, which causes sadness. And this is from sharepad. And you have a dream, which is from the ramblings of the mind, let's talk about it. Let's talk about true dreams or divine dreams, meaning let's talk about divine dreams. And we said divine demons have two parts one is true dream and one is a good dream. So let's talk about true dreams. Firstly, the dreams of the prophets are revelation are revelation and Allah subhanho wa Taala states in the Quran, that revelation was given to the prophets in three ways.
And it is not given to any human being or it is not given to any human being that Allah subhanho wa Taala should speak to him unless it be through inspiration, or behind a veil or behind a veil. So what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, In Surah assura
I am number 51.
And we also have testimony to the dreams of prophets being revelation in the story of Ibrahim Alayhi salat, because Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was commanded to
sacrifice is very rarely celeb via dreams via dreams. Right?
We know this sort of soft fact. Right? Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the story of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam that when it became old enough, we instructed him to or Ibrahim told his son. Yeah, good idea.
In the era, feeling man, me and me as batoka.
Right. He says, Oh, my son, I have seen
not physically seen but through the heart, which means it was a dream
in the era, and the Hulk that I am slaughtering you, for what do you say about this? What do you say about us look at the caliber of the province and look at the caliber of their sons. And we add a masala to a Salah. So the son turns to his father, and says, Yeah,
if I were to
do that which you've been commanded to do, so taggi dooney you will find me in sha Allah, if Allah wills, me now saw beauty in from the patient.
ajibola look at this image, this acceptance of the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala I thought about what I want, and about what you want.
It's not about my rights, and your rights. It's about what is right. That's what it's about. So panela right. And here we see that this instruction to sacrifice came via a dream. So the dreams of the prophets of Allah are revelation, a revelation. And
the Bible Buhari states that I should have the law who said that divine revelations began to come to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the form of righteous and true dreams, whilst he used to be asleep. And whenever he had a dream, it would become true like daybreak, so he would see it and it will become true. So revelation was coming to him via dreams. So this further establishes our point. Now with regards to true dreams, if you see a dream, and it becomes true, then understand this is a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala to you. Allah gifting you imagine how you feel that my rock gifted me something so Pamela, he showed me something and it came through La
la la la. It requires salah and sugar. Definitely, to have to have that intimate understanding of your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala that you are touched in such a manifest way.
These true dreams are a gift that Abu Qatada Allah who reports that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, true dreams are from Allah and bad dreams are from shavon. And we'll discuss bad dreams just now. And it is reported in Sahih. Muslim by Abu huraira me that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, those of you with the truest of dreams will be those who are the most truthful in speech. Remember, we said it's attached to your honesty?
it's attached to your honesty. Now, our true dreams specific to the believers. Yes or no?
Yes. No. Why? Because in Surah, Yusuf, the king had a dream which came true, isn't it? So they're not specific to the believers. They can the same dream be shared by several people? Can several people share the same dream? Yes, they can. Yes.
They can. And this is also manifest in terms of the Sahaba because the time came when they also later to Qatar would be during the last seven nights of Ramadan. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said your dreams have matched the search for the night during the last seven nights.
Now, true dreams can be classified as requiring an interpretation due to the obscurity of the symbolism in the dream, or because of the ignorance of the dreamer. So a true dream, you can go ahead and
seek its interpretation. However, other dreams require no interpretation, because of the clarity of the dream, or because of the obvious meaning of the symbols. And this is what the dream interpreter does. The Dream interpreter looks at symbols in the dream.
Right? So it doesn't mean for example, you saw yourself eating rice that you're going to be eating rice, for example, right because rice could be a symbol that denotes something else, which Allah has blessed the dream interpreter to understand, has blessed the dream interpreter to understand 10 minutes, five minutes 35 minutes inshallah. That means they're going to hear less about dreams and they are interested in dreams. They want 10 minutes. But we rush inshallah. Dreams is something people always ask about. It's something that's always in our minds. And we saw this dream and how should we, you know, how should we relate to it and so on. These are common things. Let's just take
some lessons that help us have a working relationship with the dreams. Now,
only the prophets view with certainty that their dreams were true before the dream materialized. Because we said that, what were their dreams revelation, right. All other people have to wait for the dream to come true. Before you consider that dream, a true dream. So if somebody comes to you tomorrow and says, claims to be a prophet or claims to be some famous rally, or something, because they saw a dream, and they say it's a true dream, before it came true, we say this is falsehood and rejected. The only people who could say it was a true dream, before it happened. They were the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, the prophets and the animals salat wa salam. So this is a
very important point now.
With that, with regards to true dreams, let's talk about good dreams, which is the other segment with regards to good dreams. abou side and Audrey Ravi Allahu al Bukhari, there's a Hadith, which is attributed to him. he narrates that he heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, if any one of you has a dream that he likes that he likes, that it's from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And
he should thank Allah for it. And
the ratio 82 others, there are 82 others, but those others mean those who are sincere advisors, and well wishes often when we discuss this because we can see in Surah, Yusuf Yaqoob said, Do not narrate this dream, right? And this dream really was glad tidings of prophethood as Yaqoob understood from his son, but he said, don't tell this to your brother's less special plot against Scotland say, when you have a good dream, don't go tell everybody.
Don't keep it a secret.
Always related to those who are closest to you, your closest well wishes in another heads which is considered more for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Is there a new idea? Kava? How did you communicate to them?
assist yourselves in your matches by keeping it a secret,
as some of the scholars have graded this habit of by keeping it a secret because every person who Allah blesses with the blessing has someone who envy Islam.
And you all you've all heard about something called the evil. Have you heard of it? Yes, that evil I can affect that blessing. And make that blessing a test for you. Thus keep it a secret. Only release it to those who are true well wishes and those who praise Allah subhanho wa Taala when you are given a blessing, right, so when we should relate it to others but to those who are well wishes to us this is an important lesson. An important lesson today we Mashallah we get a job immediately on Facebook, I got the new job immediately twitterfeed has to go out, we have to tell the world those we know and those who don't know why keep it a secret. Perhaps it will be a means of you growing in that job and
it lasting longer for you. There's no need to announce your blessings to the whole world keep it a secret based on the instruction of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they have insha Allah will break here and when we come back we will continue with good dreams and then we will discuss satanic dreams with Allah to Allah and we will discuss the human cognitive thoughts in terms of it playing a part in our dreaming and then we will go deeper and discuss I am number four be the law hitter Allah Please sit down please sit down Everybody, please sit down
from the etiquettes of the dose.
Not to move until
your teacher asks you to. Now I know Mashallah, you are more deserving of my respect, no doubt. But Allah has tested me and made me a teacher. So that comes with certain morals, right and etiquette, so we shouldn't stand up and also it's out of respect to the institute because when I finish, it gets passed on to the classroom monitor Zack O'Hara
