And he turned away from them and said, Oh my sorrow over use of, and his eyes became white from grief. For he was of that a suppressor meaning of this grief, he was constantly suppressing it. And he kept crying before Allah. And because of that his eyes became blind. What is beautiful over here is the fact that what the one learn whom he turned away from the people, meaning he didn't cry before them, he turned away from them. So who is it that he cried before then, of loss upon? Who is it that he complained to a law? Who is it that he placed his trust in a law? And if we remember this, then really dealing with life's problems have become very easy. Our sad reality is that when
we are going through some difficulty, first we cry before people, we exhaust our tears over there, so that when we do go to make the art we think, Oh, I wonder if there is even going to help. We need to do this. What I will learn home, turn away from people and express your sorrows, your worries, shed your tears, pour your heart out before Allah. God knew. They said, By Allah, you will not see his remembering use of until you become fatally ill or become of those who perish. Now, the children the family is criticizing your Cobra listener, meaning Why are you so sad? Again, you see some traces of jealousy that get over him. Get over him, you have so many of us. Now you should be
worried about Binyamin. Binyamin is our real problem right? Now Yusuf is long gone, forget about him. It's as if they're getting angry. The fact is that you cannot extract love from someone's heart for another, you cannot pull it out, no matter what do you do? Can't do that. We are cool brother Sam loved use of our high center. And we see that after all of these years, all of these years, what is he remembering? Who is he remembering use of our center, because even though use of is gone, the love is there, the attachment is there. And this is true. And we see that the brothers have use of artists and I'm Their plan was to get rid of us so that their father would love them. Did they get
that love by removing use of artists? out of the picture? Not at all? No
honor in a school Bathsheba who's Nina la? He said I only complain of my suffering and my grief to Allah. And I know from Allah that which you do not know. And this is why I am so hopeful. I'm not complaining to you. So leave me alone. I'm complaining to Allah. And why am I remembering Yusuf? Because I know from Allah something that you do not know, because use of RSM shared his dream with Jaco bridezilla and jacobellis that I knew from that dream, that use of penicillin was going to be gifted some special honor. And he was hopeful. I know from Allah what you do not know. I have faith in Allah, Ibrahim realist and I'm also what do we see? In such old age he has been granted children,
and Jaco bredeson after so many years, he has hoped that his son is alive. Oh my son's go and find out about use of and his brother and despair not of relief from Allah. Indeed, no one despairs of relief from Allah except the disbelieving people. Remember that despair? is a major sin, giving up hope in Allah is a major sin. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was once asked by a man or messenger of Allah, what are the Kabbalah it what are the major sins, and the prophets of Allah said the Kabbalah or schilke with Allah, giving up hope of relief from Allah, and despair from the mercy of Allah. These are all forms of major shift.
But we don't even think about this. So easily we give up hope, if we're sick, or I don't think I'm gonna get better. If we did not manage to go somewhere. I don't think I'm ever going to get there. If the children are being rebellious, they're hopeless case. No one is a hopeless case. No one at all is a hopeless case. Giving up hope, is what this is despairing and Allah's mercy. And this is a major sin. And remember, no matter how difficult the circumstances have become, no matter how long it has been, still never ever despair of circumstances changing, because a lot can change the situation. No matter how long it has been. The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said that our Lord
laughs at the despair of his slaves and the closeness of its change, meaning how quickly things are going to change. There's just like two steps away. The change is just two steps away. But what happens the slave he gives up, and when he gives up a lot laughs at him because the state has been so foolish. You understand? This is just like a person saying at 8:45pm while he's fasting, I don't think I can fast anymore. I think I'm gonna break my fast. Exactly. You're laughing
Right, you're laughing. Why? Because it's something so foolish. Right? But what happens for the person who is in that situation? He thinks, Oh, I can't make it I cannot survive. There is no way I can live through this. This is it. I give up a lot laughs at a person when he does this, a Buddha scene he said he had a suit Allah, our Lord laughs He found this amazing. Oh Al Baqarah banner. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Yes, a Buddha Zein said, then we can never give up of goodness from a lord who laughs
if our Lord labs that how can we ever give up that he will show goodness to us? No, we can only expect good from him.
So we see over here, that jacobellis Anam now as the loss is doubled, use Verizon has gone now Binyamin is gone. And in addition, there's a third son also who stayed in Egypt, the eldest one who said, I'm not going I'm staying here, until my father allows me to come he's lost three sons. And now look at his hope, how his hope has just grown so much. He says, Go and find about Yusuf and his brother and despair not really from Allah. Indeed, no one despairs of really from Allah, except the disbelieving people. So when they entered upon use of this at all disease, adversity has stashed us and our family and we have come with goods for in quality, but give us full measure and be
charitable to us. Indeed, Allah rewards the charitable, they're asking him for sadaqa. And this is the reality of the one who does not accept the greatness of another, he is humbled, he is humbled, the one who does not accept the greatness that Allah has given to another than what will happen he the person who rejects he is going to be humiliated. And we see exactly this happening with the brothers of use of artists now if only they accepted that he has use of his a good boy. The problem is with us not with our father, not with the use of the problem is with us we need to fix our behavior. If they had focused on that, instead of blaming us for the center, things would have been
much better but they didn't they blame the use of our center we refuse to accept the status of their father and refuse to accept the status of use of in the eyes of their father and what happened with this pride. They are being humbled now in the Lucha yeji is in with us for the pain. Now use of our listener could not help himself. So he said, Do you know what you did with use of and his brother when you were ignorant? It antonija he alone? Look at the greatness of use of race. I mean, the woman when she said I am wrong, he reminded that in Nairobi, her photo Rahim. And now here, he tells them in antonija he known when you were ignorant, they said are you indeed use of he said I am Yusuf
and this is my brother. What a calm and Noble Way of surprising someone. He's so calm. Yes, I am Yusef and this is my brother. Allah has certainly favored us. Indeed, he who fears Allah and his patient, a know who may attack us bill. For in the law. Hello, you'll do on your own more sinning than Allah does not allow to be lost. The reward of those who do good meaning they're sober is not wasted.
sober is not wasted. So be patient observed the poor and help will come. They said by Allah. Certainly Allah has preferred you over us. Now they're acknowledging, and indeed we have been sinners, when in cananda hardly eat. They're accepting their mistake. They admit that yes, we were wrong. And this was their Toba because they openly confessed their fault before you serve our listener. It says that they're seeking forgiveness from him. So use of artists Sam said no blame will there be upon you today? Letter three barley como yo, yo quiero la hula comb. May Allah forgive you. He's not just forgiving them. He's also asking Allah to forgive them. This is prophetic
character, that when a person has the ability to inflict revenge, he pardons he overlooks why in hopes of Allah's forgiveness. Well, who are humbled Rahimi, and he's giving them hope that Allah is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy.
forgiving other people is something very difficult to do. But the one who forgives, then he is also forgiven. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, He who does not show mercy to the people, Allah does not show mercy to him and he who does not forgive, then he is not forgiven. The one who does not forgive others, then he does not receive forgiveness either. So use of our listener
Look, his honor is only increasing, his status is only increasing when he shows noble character. What prevents us from showing forgiveness to others is that we feel that now we will become less. No, we're not going to suffer. You do something for Allah, Allah who will raise your status, forgiving others only increases one and honor. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, charity does not in any way decrease wealth. And the servant who forgives a lot adds to his respect. And the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the sight of people, the one who shows humility, Allah will increase him in the sight of people take this my shirt and cast it over the face of my father, he
will become seeing and bring me your family all together. The last time your Cobra has sent and received the shirt of use of it was stained with fake blood.
And this time, he receives the shirt of use of Arizona, and he has given his vision back. It's not the shirt, the main sources who Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then his whole family came. But when the caravan departed from Egypt, their father said, Indeed I find the smell of use of I can smell him and each person has a distinct smell, and especially people who are close to you, whom you love, you recognize their smell. So he said that I can smell use of and I would say that he was alive if you did not think me weakened in mind. They said by Allah, indeed you are in your same old error. Look at how he's being treated by his family. He's a prophet. And he's an old man. And we need to
see over here that the old people that are perhaps in our family, how do we treat them? How do we speak to them? Do we treat them as if they were crazy? As if what they're saying is complete nonsense, ignoring what they're saying. Refusing to even carry a decent conversation with them because we find what they say so annoying. This is arrogance. And look at how the family of your Kubernetes and mistreating them. Remember that a person who is old, even if they're a burden on us, they are still a loss creation. And when they're suffering, they deserve mercy and compassion from us not rudeness. And if we want to be shown mercy By Allah, then we need to start showing mercy to
the creation of Allah especially those who are closest to us no matter how difficult we find no matter how difficult we feel we have to do this for them. And when the bearer of good tidings arrived he cast the shirt over his face and he returned once again seeing he said along Apollo calm in the early morning Allah him Allah tala moon, Did I not tell you that I know from Allah that which you do not know. They said, Our father asked for us forgiveness of our sins. Indeed, we have been sinners. Now they're confessing before their father also, before they confess before use of Ernestina now they're confessing before their father. And you see, this is something necessary that
if the sin was private, then yes, we need to confess before Allah. But if the sin was done to another, it was public, then we need to confess before them admit that yes, it was my fault. And I'm sorry about that. Because if they don't forgive us, then Allah's forgiveness will also be held back from us. Carla sofa, a selfie ruler, camera B, he said, I will ask forgiveness for you from my Lord. Indeed it is he who is the Forgiving, the Merciful. There is no harm in making the offer others when they're not able to make themselves like for example, a person who has died or a child or a person who's so unwell, they're not even able to make the offer themselves we should make the offer them.
And also sometimes it happens that a person is making the offer themselves, but it is not sufficient. They need more withdraws. So there is no harm in doing that. And when they entered upon Yusuf, he took his parents to himself, look at how he is treating his parents. And he said, enter Egypt, Allah willing, safe and secure. You see the words over here our la away. He took his parents to himself. This is also understood as he hugged them. He showed love to them. He showed respect to them. And we can see why yakou brothers and I'm loved use of Ernestina because of his other because of his good behavior. And he raised his parents upon the throne. The other look at the love, he
raised his parents upon the throne, and they bow to him in prostration, meaning all of them his brothers, and he said, Oh my father. This is the explanation of my vision. My dream that I had long time ago. My Lord has made it reality after how long
Minimum 40 years. And during this time he went through many trials of the Journal of be hardcore. And he was certainly good to me. nucifera Islam is giving credit to Allah subhanaw taala he's recognizing I did not come out of the prison myself, I did not get out of the well myself alone was good to me when he took me out of prison and brought you here from bedwin life after shavon had induced estrangement between me and my brothers. He's blaming shape on that, despite the fact that Chitwan tried so hard to create this division in us, yet, Allah has kept us together. Yet, after all these years, Allah has brought us together. What do we see here? Use Avaya. Sam is remembering the
blessings. He's talking about what went right. He's not talking about oh, you know, by the way, they didn't really take me for play. They threw me in the well.
They threw me in the well. And now my sad story, version one and then version two, and then part one, and then part two, and then once and then another time, another time. No, he's just talking about the blessings. This can come from who the person who has truly been grateful, and patient, because suburban should go hand in hand. You know, many times when we study the Sierra, and we learn about incidents that are somewhat disturbing. We don't find much detail about those incidents. We don't find much detail. Like for example, the incident of if we know that for an entire month, I shadowed alone until I was sick. What happened in that whole month must have been a lot. But what do
we find just a few details, not much detail why because as a habit did not talk about those matters. They spoke about success, good things, blessings, the ayat that were revealed. Why because they were patient, and grateful. The use of Ernesto lamb was also like that this is indeed prophetic character. Also, when you compare the machi life of the prophets of the lesson to the Medina era, for the Medina and era, you find so much detail for the machiya, you don't find much detail, even though makira was much longer 13 years, as opposed to 10 years. Yes, a lot happened in those 10 years in Medina. But a lot also happened in those 13 years in Makkah, you could literally put
together all of the narrations about makan era on one side, and on the other, you could put the narrations about an Israelite marriage, and the narrations about slavery miraggio would be much more.
Why? Because the Sahaba talked about the blessings of Allah further guru, Allah, remember the favors of Allah, and that his prophetic character indeed, use of La Salaam said, Indeed my lord is subtle in what he will. he executes as well in such subtle ways. We don't even know what's going on. And so much is going on, apparently difficult circumstances. But those difficult circumstances have within them hidden benefits. Indeed, it is he who is the knowing the wise, do you remember the dream of use of realism? He saw the sun, the moon and the stars all prostrating at the same time. And generally, you don't see the sun and the moon and the stars all in the sky. At the same time. The sun is when
during daytime and the moon and the stars when are they in the sky in the nighttime. But we see that both came together. Right? And this is how life is with good is bad. with ease. His difficulty with difficulty is ease. You can't have it all good and you don't have it all bad either. Use of artists and I'm story seems like a very sad story. But yes, there is a big portion of it, which is very sad. But then there's another portion of it which is very happy and beautiful. And this is what life is about. And this realization should make us grateful for what we have and patient over what we have lost. Or because the agitator noumenal molk My Lord, You have given me something of sovereignty, and
taught me of the interpretation of dreams. First, we'll assume our Creator of the heavens and the earth and totally give it dunia. Voila, hello. You are my protector in this world and in the hereafter. This is the ultimate lesson. Allah is our protector in this world and in the hereafter caused me to die a Muslim and join me with the righteous. There were funny Muslim man. Well who can Eva slyly he use a very solemn at this point in his life. He has everything. He has the power. He has the money. He has the freedom. He has his family. He has his loved ones, everything that he had lost previously. Now, he has all of it. But his heart is attached to nothing. His heart is longing
He says, Allah felt a little similar to you well out until when he, you are my money, not my money, not my family, not this position that I have, you are my body. And when dunya is taken away from us, then we are made to feel that how these things are not worth relying upon. These things are not worth attaching ourselves to, that we cry for them, we weep over them, we exalt over them. No, it's not worth it. Because these things are temporary. When dunia leaves the heart, then a person becomes the Valley of Allah. Uncover Lee fifth dunya while you are my wife, because we see that he doesn't have any love for any things of this world. In his heart, His heart is attached to Allah though a
funny Muslim man. Well, how can he be slowly hain Valley come in under 11, new he like that is from the news of the unseen which we revealed to you, and you are not with them. When they put together their plan while they conspired. Or Prophet sallallahu sallam, you are not there. When the brothers of use of word planning, then how could you know through what he was a thorough nurse. And most of the people will know how stuff although you strive for it, meaning at all believers, majority of the people no matter how much you try, they are not going to believe because the prophets of the last time he passed the test over here. They asked him about use of La Silla and he recited the entire
sort of user, but still the people did not believe and you do not ask them for it any payment. It is not except a reminder to the world in who illa licola el amin and how many assign within the heavens and earth do the past over while they're there from our turning away. And most of them believe not in Allah, except while they associate others with him. So we have to be very careful about this matter then, because Sheikh Allah says is very common. majority of the people do not believe in a lie, except that they associate partners with him at the same time. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he warned us he said that all people refrain from schilke because it creeps in more silently than a
crawling and crawling. And do you ever hear an ant crawling? Do you ever feel it coming into your house? You have no idea and the next thing you know, there's so many ants in your house in your kitchen? How did they come? Where did they come from? You didn't hear them. You didn't even sense them. You don't even feel them. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said shift comes like this, how that when in difficulty, a person forgets a lot and he begins relying upon others. When he's planning something, he begins to trust himself. And he does not have trust in Allah. He's not grateful for what he has. And he's upset about what he has lost, giving up hope in Allah, despairing of Allah's
mercy committing major sin.
This is what leads to shake, it starts very small. Because you see all of these trials that Allah puts us through. Why, so that we realize until he or Allah, you are my Wali, when Allah take something away from our hands, he takes the people whom we love away from us Why? So that in that loneliness, we seek alone, when our hands are empty, then we seek a love because generally what happens when our stomach is full, we're not going to bother being patient. Fasting is a training of the remembering a law. So when a law takes blessings away from us, when he puts us through these tests, he is basically teaching us the head. He's making us realize that you were made for someone
else, not for the house that you live in, not for the people that you live with. For amino, then do they feel secure, that they will not come to them and overwhelming aspect of the punishment of Allah? Or that the hour will not come upon them suddenly, while they do not perceive? So in which situation can we ever entertain negative thoughts about Allah say, this is my way I invite to Allah with insight, and I and those who follow me and Exalted is Allah and I am not of those who associate others with him. And we sent not before you as messengers, except men, to whom we revealed from among the people of cities, so have they not traveled through the earth and observed how was the end
of those before them, and the home of the Hereafter is best for those who fear Allah, then will you not reason why are you still chasing this world? Why are you still so sad over its loss and so happy over its gain? They continued until when the messengers despaired and we're certain that they had been denied their came to them our victory this happens that when you think I don't think I can hold on any longer, when the difficulty is really it
intensify when they compound when they add up one loss coupled with another loss with another loss, and then what happens, the door to relief is opened up. Then there came to them our victory and whoever we willed was saved, and our punishment cannot be repelled from the people who are criminals. There was certainly in their stories, a lesson for those of understanding. Never was the Quran a narration invented, but a confirmation of what was before it, and a detailed explanation of all things and guidance and mercy for people who believe this is the Quran and the stories in the Quran that the story of use of SNL, what is it? It is called a guidance, because it teaches you that
life is not over. Even if you're suffering from many difficulties. It's a guidance and alarma it gives us hope, but for who live call me minimum for those who believe in the Quran. For those who believe in their Lord, that my Lord will not abandon me. My Lord will not make me suffer from every suffering also, he will bring about good because if use of Allah said I was rewarded so generously for his suburban sugar, then I can also try to be patient and hope for the best reward from Allah.
