Here's right and we know the person talked about the evil I said that it is true. We know that jealousy is one of the major sins in our
world. We know that jealousy was the source of why the brothers
were jealous of their brother.
He couldn't feel he took it personally because it all was because it didn't because you have brothers, because our fathers like this, once we do this, our Father will good will be peaceful will be happy. Were they happy, miserable, miserable. They couldn't get away from this their whole life which we wanted, but your actions needed because of jealousy,
and jealousy and ego, we're brothers and sisters
defined, well defined. Point number three
is a big one. Point number three is that you can't help anybody else. If you're not strong yourself. If you're not strong yourself
with Allah inshallah, we'll be starting in a few minutes, there's just a bit of a delay in the class starting, so inshallah,
in about two or three minutes, we should begin, inshallah,
this will give you the strength to pass this and get to the next stage, what is the next stage, the stage of forgiveness? Can you imagine that one thing you said is gonna forgive his brothers for what they've done?
And we're gonna study that meaning the sword, I will talk deep about his psychology.
How did you get through this trauma? How did he do that? Was it just a lot just, you know, magically gave him some power? No, he had so much difficulty in his life. But he had to keep a good perspective on Allah subhana wa, Tada. This was very critical. And the last point that I want to mention, guys, as we're wrapping up, the last point that I'm going to mention now inshallah we will call it for today is, remember the one thing in your life's when the before, that you are always in charge of your own destiny. You can choose in life, to be the victim, or to be the savior to be the hero. It's your choice. And you have all the things in your favor, because you have to remember that
Allah is not against you, your family's not against your siblings aren't against you. And even if the whole world is against you, have a look. And that's amazing. And we remember that it's really our definition of our times, some people are always playing the victim. My dad did this to me when I was a kid, my mom, my sister, and my brother, they're always together, and I'm alone. My brothers have such a good relationship that I don't fit in. My parents. Were always playing the victim card. So how anyone could play the victim card? And what
did your brother's trying to kill you? And maybe someone's like, Yeah, when I was young, he tried to put the pillow and, okay. He was underneath. When they were older, he comes together and
see the worst. Let's not kill him. He was just throw them in a well, we just talked about it.
That's good. Yeah, don't make the world good. You know, it'll make our family life happy. You did not help the brothers and sister and it's not the brothers have You said you had a different situation in your life. And you can definitely call or whatever it was. And even if you have a very toxic relationship with your family, your parents etc. You have to always understand that Allah subhanaw taala puts you in this world with the ability to move forward with the ability to do better. So this is where I'm going to close off the show for today. And when we get our next session, I would rather have it on next week and I'll be back inshallah, in two weeks. We will go a
little bit further and covering another of the major lessons of the major lessons in the data. Does that cool? Oh, hold on.
So basically, I'm going to just hand off the mic to Senator Tamia will be stepping up here. So if everyone can inshallah just kind of reset for a minute. Before we do that, I did want to just

lahoma the economy was said diddly Sani was rules of emoticons the Armenian open either mean. So inshallah we'll begin from Iowa number
eight absolute Yusuf Al Hamdulillah. In our previous class we learned about the dream of use of earlier he said an introduction to the story. And we learned about how use of our he said when he shared his dream with his father, his father told him not to share his dream with his brothers. And then Allah tada mentions about how in the story of use of ARIA Salaam there are surely lessons for the people who ask and now
them now we're in the part of the story where the brothers of use have already his cinema mentioned. So inshallah beginning from Ayah number eight, first we will do the translation, and then inshallah We'll begin with the seat. So those of you who have your books with you, you can open them up and those of you who don't inshallah, you can look at the screen and follow along. So it's verse number eight of sudut use of

What can I know and they were fee in regard to him mean among azacitidine those who are on interested.
So the hamdulillah we're done with the translation now inshallah we'll begin that the seed
and that will be from IRA number eight.
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in number seven, Allah subhanaw taala says, look at the canopy usofa what he what he he is to Lisa Ilene, that certainly there are in use of and his brothers signs meaning lessons for those who ask meaning for those who are testing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to see whether he is truthful or not. They should actually, instead of testing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they should reflect on the story and derive lessons from it. And I actually say Elaine, remember I mentioned to you earlier that said, Ilene also refers to the companions, because they asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for his story. And this sutra
was revealed. So don't just listen to the story for the purpose of enjoyment, that it's a great story that it's a beautiful story. Yes, it is truly an amazing story. But at the same time, focus on the lessons as well. Focus on the signs that Allah spawn tada is teaching you through this story about how great is Allah subhanaw taala is power, how Allah subhanaw taala is plan always prevails, and how for the believer there is truly no loss, that no matter what situation a believer is put in, that is actually good for him. So this part of the story now begins with the mention of use of and his brothers. So of course pantherella says it will follow Lucifer well who who? Meaning recall when
the brothers of use of his Salaam they said What did they say amongst each other? They said like that they said Lucifer Whoa, whoa, whoa, that surely Yousuf and his brother. Now what they meant by his brother was Binyamin, who was the full brother of use of early his son. So this abusive and his brother, they are a horrible Isla Urbina. They are more beloved to our father, and who was their father Yaqoob earlier his solemn they said that they're more beloved to him, Mina than us, meaning our Father loves them more than he loves us. And who are we want to Honduras baton, whereas the fact is that we are or spa it, clan. Now this is very interesting. You see, these brothers of yous have
already said and they were from a different mother. Okay, and there were 10 in number and Yusuf and Benny I mean, they were from a different mother. So, they said that we are an Ursa. So our father should love us more. Because we are an Ursa. And what is an Ursa? roozbeh if you look at the word is from the root, I saw the bar, and basically the word or spy refers to a company a group of men, that are about 10 in number, who basically league together they stay together, why in order to defend each other, okay? Basically the word are all sub
from the same root is used for the tendons and ligaments of the body. And what tendons and ligaments do is that they keep the body connected, right. So this is how an Ursa is, it is, it is a group of people, but it is as if they are one body, they're so united. They're they're so together and together, that they are very strong. So they said that we are an Ursa, right? We are a clan, and we deserve more love and attention from our father. And when he's not giving us that love and attention, in that abana, indeed, our Father Luffy balani mobian, he is surely in banally mubin in a clear error. Now, this is interesting, the word blood and generally we understand it as misguidance.
Right? But remember, the blood is actually of two kinds. The one kind of blank is that which is in religion. So a person is misguided, meaning they're not on this trade path. They're not upon guidance. But there's another kind of banal, which is in the matters of dunya. Right, in worldly matters, where, for example, a person is ignorant, right, or they're unaware, or they're making a bad decision. So this is what they're referring to, because remember that their father jacoba, his son was actually a prophet of Allah. So he could not be in misguidance. Not at all. what they meant is that he is in clear error, meaning he's making a huge mistake, by giving preference to Yusuf and
Binyamin over us, because he needs us more than he needs them. We are more in number, we are stronger, we are more able, we are able to help him and support him. And if he is not giving us attention and love, then you know what he is the one who's missing out he is the one who's making a huge mistake.
Now, there's a couple of things that we need to notice over here. The fact that the brothers of use of Ra Salaam are, you know, talking amongst themselves, and they're talking about their father. They're talking about how their father is being unfair, that their father does not love them. What's happening over here. There is first of all bad assumption, right? There's bad assumption of their father. And then there is backbiting, right? And then there's that underlying jealousy towards use of and Binyamin. And then there's that arrogance, that ego that you know what, we are better. And then there is blame. There's accusation that, you know, our Father is making a huge mistake. Now,
the first of all, we need to figure out Dr. Coburn He has sent him really love Yusuf and Vinny, I mean, more than he loved his other sons. Were they correct in their assumption?
The thing is that when it comes to parents, right, parents are supposed to be just and fair with their children. And this is in terms of showing them love, in giving them different things and giving them attention in taking care of them. Parents are obligated to be fair and just with their children, and your Cobra s&m was actually a prophet of Allah. And what do you think about a prophet of Allah? Would he not be just unfair, because the prophets of Allah are not only the most knowledgeable amongst people, they're also the most God fearing, they're also the most obedient. So we would only expect that Dr. Cooper SNM, given the fact that he was a prophet of Allah was actually
fair with his children, in treating them well, in taking care of them, etc. But remember that when it comes to our feelings, right, as human beings, now, this is something that we don't have much control over, right? And remember that when it comes to love, loving someone, love is actually a risk, a provision, a gift that Allah subhanaw taala gives you in your heart. All right. And remember that when it comes to
loving people, or being more friendly with certain individuals, or getting along with them better, now, this is something that we really don't always have control over. You see, for example, two people, they get along really well together, right? And at the end, and there may be they may be related, they may not be related. And then there are other people who do not get along well together at all, even though they're related. Alright, what's the difference? What's the difference over here? It's simple. It's just that some personalities you know, they click some individuals, they just get along well together and some individuals they just don't get along. They just don't see eye
to eye. Right? It there's just a difference in personality.
And this happens sometimes between parents and children as well, that for example, a father will get along really well with one child and not another child. Right? It's just that that one child understands the father is more obedient is more respectful. You know, they're they have better manners, and the other child who's always, you know, resisting always complaining or always arguing, not really obedient. So, of course, there's going to be a difference. Right? So it is quite possible that your Cobra is Ceylon, he did have more love for you surf and Binyamin why, as we will see in the following verses, it was actually because of the character because of the behavior of use of his
setup. We learned earlier about how when you suffer, he said I'm had the dream, he spoke to his father, right? And he addressed him in a very loving and respectful way. And in the coming verses in the following verses, we will see how the brothers of use of earliest Salaam when they spoke to their father, they began with an accusation, right? They were actually very harsh with their father. So of course, this is very natural that when someone deals with you in a harsh way, they, they, they they push you away, right? And when someone deals with you in a loving way, then of course there's going to be more, you know, the relationship is absolutely going to be better. Right? So remember
that when it comes to feelings, of course you don't have control over them. But when it comes to actions, parents have to be fair. And when we look at your Cobra has sent him the verses that are mentioned in the surah. Was your Cobra, his son, I'm fair with his children. Absolutely he was. If you consider what we have read so far, when you suffer les Salaam shared his dream with his father, what did your Cobra Salaam tell? Tell him that do not tell your brothers about it? Right? So what was your Cobra lesson I'm trying to do, he was trying to protect yourself. And he was also trying to protect his other sons. Right? That they should not find out about the gift that Yusuf is being
given because naturally they will feel jealous, naturally, they will feel bad. So we see that use your cooler in a salon was doing whatever was within his capacity, to be fair with all of his children. So when it comes to this accusation that our Father loves them more. This is an unfair accusation. This is actually not right. Not true at all. And if they're talking about his love, then meaning in his heart, then that is something that a person is not accountable for. When it comes to actions, we see that the actions of your Cobra senang were certainly very fair.
Now amongst themselves, what are they doing? They're talking, they're backbiting basically right about their father. Now remember that backbiting is wrong anyway. But backbiting about one's parents. This is worse. Why is it worse because who are parents, parents are people who have done nothing but is sad towards their children? Right? So someone who has been good to you, and if you start backbiting about them, that is worse. That is actually reprehensible. Right? Now, of course, parents are not perfect, right? They're human beings, they're not going to be perfect. But still, Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to do ersan towards our parents. And part of that ASN is that
we overlook their weaknesses, that we think good of them. So what were the brothers of use of artists that I'm doing over here, there were talking amongst themselves backbiting, expressing their ill feelings, their assumptions, and trying to win, you know, the support of one another. And there they were justifying their anger against their father.
Then in the next verse, we see that they said, opa to Lu use of they said, kill use of imagine it started with what with backbiting? But remember that one sin certainly leads to another which leads to another. This is why Allah, Allah tells us in the Quran, that do not follow the footsteps of shape on what are the footsteps of shaitan that one show plan invites you to one sin, then don't follow him don't follow his lead, because that one sin is going to lead to another which will lead to another. So a lot of times if you think about it, you know bad relationships or a lot of
Fighting and a lot of aggression and injustice, how does it begin? If you if you dig into it, it begins with a bad assumption which leads to backbiting and then which leads to injustice. So the said okoto yourself, kill yourself, write a whimper Who? Or cast him throw him away, have been in a land Why Why kill him? Why throw him away? Yes, Lula calm would you who have become so that the face of your father will become free for you, it will become available to you what a corner mimbar the here and then you can be after him meaning after use of is gone, you've gotten rid of him. You can be after him Coleman solly hain righteous people, then everything will be good.
Now, it's interesting. They said, kill him or throw him away. And now look at the word it throw who or who will this this is from thought thought or how important is to throw something away, fling it away, you know, discarded as if it was a piece of garbage. And this shows the hatred that they had for use of early his center.
Now, it's interesting, it is mentioned, awkward to use of this said kill use of meaning all of them said kill yourself or throw him away.
Now, of course, when there's 10 people talking amongst themselves, it's not that all 10 of them spoke together kill use of No one must have said it. Right? But why is it attributed to all of them, because they were all a part of this conversation. So they're, we're all guilty of it. And this is something that we need to take very seriously. Because, you know, sometimes we say that you know what i'm not backbiting they are, but you know what, someone cannot backbite unless and until you give them a listening ear. Right? Someone cannot talk bad about another unless and until you are there to listen to them. So this is why it's necessary that we neither backbite ourselves, nor
listen to it. We neither lie ourselves, nor listen to those lives. And this is something that our last point on mentioned in the Quran, some our own a little khabib there are those who listen to a to lies a lot, meaning they participate in such conversations. So over to Lucifer are with Rahu they said, kill him or get rid of him. Now, if you look at the previous IR right, they said, Our Father loves you surf and Binyamin more,
as if to say that it's because you surf and Binyamin or from a from a different mother. Right? This is why our father likes, you know that side of his family more, and he doesn't like us, but now look at look at the fact that they're trying to get rid of only use of they're not trying to get rid of Binyamin, right. Why? Because they actually had a problem with use of early his center. Okay, they they they disliked use of a center, they didn't have a problem with Binyamin and they didn't have a problem with the fact that you know, use it from being I mean, from where from a different mother. The real issue over here was against who they were jealous of use of it center.
So they said, kill him or throw him away. Were out of luck in a land notice the word of London, this is Nikita you can see from the the titane at the end. And this, this created this creates ambiguity, meaning just throw him away in another land, you know a place that we don't know that you know, our father does not know about so that he will not be able to find him. So kill him so he's no longer alive or get rid of him so that he cannot be found he cannot be with our father. And the benefit will be yes Lula comb would you who are become yellow This is from Han lamb wild and your clue is when something becomes empty void. So the face of your father will become free. Meaning right now
the face of your father is directed only to use of right now. He can only see use of his only showing his love to him. So if we get rid of you so what's going to happen is that, you know he's going to be able to notice you and he's going to be able to love you
So, again, we see that they're blaming Yusuf Ali Salaam, for what for their poor relationship with their father. Basically, what they believed was that because Yusuf is here, our Father fails to notice us.
Now, when we have a bad relationship with someone, it's very easy to start blaming other people. Right? That because, you know, for example, my extended family is here, this is why my children don't listen to me, right? Or because this person is, is a really good student. And, you know, you know, the teacher likes this person, this is why the teacher does not notice me know, what we need to do. If we feel that people don't acknowledge us or they don't, you know, appreciate us or they don't, that, you know, give us what we believe we deserve, then, instead of blaming other people, what we need to do is to look at ourselves, that what is it that I am doing? What is it that I can
do, because, you see, when when we blame other people, we're basically saying that we have no control over the situation.
But when we take responsibility, when we introspect, we believe that you know, what, we have a say, over here, we have some control, I can do something to improve my relationship. And so, the brothers of use of earlier sent out, they blamed you surf for their poor relationship with their father. And they failed to see what was wrong with them, they failed to see where they were in the wrong.
So they said, kill him, get rid of him, so that finally your father can notice you.
So, basically, because Yousef is here, this is why our life is difficult.
And they said what a quantum embody here Coleman solly here and you will be after him, meaning after you get rid of use of you can be solid people. Now, who is solid solid is someone who is basically solid, who means two things over here as you can see in the translation.
One is, those who are righteous,
meaning, you will be righteous afterwards how that you know after killing him, or after getting rid of him, we will do tober we will repent to Allah, we will seek forgiveness, okay. And you know what, after Yusuf is gone, then we will be obedient to our father. And this is how we will become righteous.
But solid doesn't just mean righteous solid also is someone whose matters are good, someone whose affairs whose situation whose condition is this good. So, what they said, but what they meant by saying what the quantum embody a common solly hain meaning that in your worldly matters, you will be good, meaning things will finally be good for you, once you surf is gone.
So in again, instead of reflecting on themselves, they found an external target to blame. So with a corner member the Coleman Salin, it's interesting how they intended to do tober before even committing the sin right, which shows that you know what, they did have something good deep down in their hearts you know, they did have that realization that this is wrong and they would have to repent from it, but they intended to repent later on why in order to justify the crime for themselves and a lot of people do this you know, do this wrong action commit this how long and you know what, later on you can fast Ramadan is coming and inshallah that will get get rid of all of my
sins. Why because you know, just the idea of committing the sin does not settle well right. Because Allah subhanaw taala has has created as upon fitrah and the fitrah our our natural disposition is such that it doesn't accept wrong right there is a moral compass inside that stops you you know that tells you that this is not okay. So, in order to do something wrong, you have to justify it right. You have to make it easier on yourself you have to remove the guilt. So, how is it that people remove that guilt by saying that you know what, will repent afterwards? So they said what the Kunal mimbar the Coleman Salim Now, one thing I want you to notice over here is that these these boys,
right, the brothers of use of artists that am Who are they they are the children of
Prophet of Allah, right? They are the great grandchildren of Ibrahim are they his son out.
And even though their father, their grandfather, their great, great grandfather, all of them were prophets, right? You can imagine what a What a beautiful upbringing they must have had. But still shaitan managed to convince them, right. And this jealousy, it made them think of such an evil idea. And the shoulders that no person is safe from the attack of shavon, even the children of a prophet, right. So just because our parents are righteous, or our grandfather was a half fails, or, you know, we come from a very righteous family, it doesn't mean that we are immune, no. shaitan is after everybody. So it is necessary that we seek Allah subhanaw taala his protection that Oh Allah, you
save me from the plot of Chopin, or Allah, you saved me, you protect me from my own evil.
And we see that the brothers of us have already sent and they were suffering from jealousy, that that was the disease that was at play over here. And what is hasn't jealousy is that you do not like the fact that someone has a certain blessing. You just don't like that idea that someone has a certain blessing. But then jealousy leads to that desire, that that blessing should be taken away from them.
So the brothers have use of artists, and they did not like the fact that their father loved use of racism. And they thought that in order to win their father's love, they had to get rid of use of racism.
There were so desperate for the attention of their father,
that they intended to kill their brother. And this is the the, you know, the, the danger of jealousy.
The Prophet sallallahu, earlier sentimentally warned us that there are two things that can never be together in the heart of a slave. And what are these two things he man? And hasn't? Faith and envy can never be together.
Which means that jealousy is something that we have to fight. Jealousy is something that we have to, you know, control, we cannot let it take over us. Again, the feelings of jealousy, they do emerge, right? And you don't always have control over it. But what you do have control over is what you do with those feelings? Meaning, are you going to talk about it? Are you going to dwell over it? Are you going to pursue it? Are you going to follow its lead? Or are you going to try to fight it, try to resist it, and try to defeat it.
So what happened? They're talking amongst themselves and then in the next aisle, we learn pa pa ELO min home. One of them said, so amongst them there, they're talking about killing yourself getting rid of him. So Paula, he said, God illumine home is speaker among them. This is from a cold path. Well now, meaning one of the brothers said, lotta Cthulhu yourself, do not kill yourself. Don't kill yourself. What? Who? Who? And instead, and who? You can throw him? Get rid of him. But where is it that we throw him? philia batil job in the bottom of a well?
Why? Why throw him over there? Because then y'all taquito Barbosa Yara, some travelers, you know, they will pick him up from there. And so they will take him and we don't have to worry about him. In quantum theory lien, if you are truly going to do something, then this is what you should do, instead of killing him.
So now colloca illumine, Han led up to the use of one of them spoke out, right, that don't kill because killing is something too serious. And this again shows us that they did have some good sense in them. Right there. Were not all bad, there were not all evil. And also, they did have a soft corner for use of isrm which shows us that use of it sent out you know, there was truly something about him, which made him so lovable, right? That even those who you know, his brothers who hated him. You know, one of them said that killing was not justified. Right? It was not okay to kill use of audio setup. So this had led up to the use of he said don't kill him. And what you can do instead
is throw him in lab.
Job. Now the word of Ableton job llevaba is from a lot. Yeah, but and labor, as you know is that which is unseen, that which is hidden. And labor is the part of something that conceals. Okay? So for example, if you have a bag, right, there's an external side of the bag and the inner side of the bag. So if you put something inside the bag, it's going to, it's going to be hidden over there, it's going to be concealed over there. So why other than job? Well, what is this part of the well, this is of course, the depth of the well, the bottom of the well, because when something is left at the is thrown in the bottom of the well, it cannot be seen because it's too dark. Right? And a job job
is a well, that is deep, so deep that if you if you look into it, you cannot see the bottom. Right. And it's also a well, that is not frequented much meaning it's not really used that much. And it shows over here, that this well was far away from where the people lived, which is why they said that some travelers will pick him up
and say you're a group of travelers, so they will pick him up your docket who is the word for picking up an LTE called lamb cough pa is to pick up something that was dropped by someone else basically look up is a is a lost object. And lt part is to find a lost object and to pick it up. So the serial tokoto Babu sejati in quantum fairy lien if you're truly going to do something, meaning if you really want to get rid of him, don't commit a big sin commit a small one. Right? And this is also something amazing. Look at how, you know the knifes it justifies wrongdoing. Right? That, of course, throwing them in the well is also wrong. But look at how they say you know what? gets
better, right? It's better than killing him. Both are wrong. But they justify their wrong action by saying that, you know what, it's not that bad at least. So now in order to carry out their plan, they had to of course get use of to that well. How would they do that? They went to their father kalu they said yeah, Urbana or our father Malika What is wrong with you? What is the matter with you? That letter Munna Allah use of that you do not trust us with use of letter monies from Amman Hamza meme known as the root. Amana is from the same root Amana is what you give us a trust to someone so that they guard it. So why is it that you don't trust us? Are they useful about you surf?
Were in their level and learn LC her own? Well, the fact is that we are to him sincere counselors, we want the best for him, but you don't trust us.
So they came up with a plan to throw him into the well. But now look at how they are talking to their father. Okay. And I want you to focus on
you know, what kind of a relationship they had with their father. And and the reasons behind why you're Kobe Salaam, you know, would be, even though he would try it, he would be just with them. Why is it that the brothers felt that, you know, their father did not love him as much? What are what are some things that it that the brothers have use of RDS and I'm dead, by which they pushed their father away.
Now the first thing is look at how they speak to their father.
They said, Yeah, Urbana Malika, or Father, what is wrong with you? What is the matter with you? So they begin by accusing their father, that it's all your fault. You know, we're fine, we're good, but the problem is in you, it's your fault. You don't trust us? And then there's emotional blackmail, right? You don't trust us? We are worthy of trust, but you don't trust us. And then we see that they're lying over here when they say what inala hula nasi Hoon that we are really sincere to him. We want the best for you. So they're lying over here. And they're using sweet words right to cover up their their evil plan. They say yeah, abana they begin with Yeah, Urbana, right. But then they
instantly follow that with something very harsh. That Malika What is wrong with you? You don't trust us? Right. And and this is the problem with
Being Too Faced, right? That even when a person is pretending to be nice, right, that pretense is not going to last for long, that fakeness is not going to last for long. The reality will come out sooner or later, you know, in different ways. So, on the surface, they're trying to be very nice and respectful, or our father. But then the truth comes out Malika, right? What's wrong with you? So, the fact is that the truth revealed itself, even if a person tries to conceal it with lies, right with pretense, the truth will become evident. So the sad, what is wrong with you that you don't trust us? Meaning what causes you to fear us in regard to use of Why are you so afraid? And the fact
is that we're in Allahu Allah nasally Whoa, now say, when is the plural of NASA. NASA is someone who is very sincere to another, someone who wants the best for another. So we love for Him what we love for ourselves, you know, we care about him, we want the best for him. But you don't trust him with us? Which is why you don't send him with us. Now, this shows us that really your Colbert SNM did not send use of our s&m with his other sons.
Why is that? So? Well, you know, remember that when parents don't allow something, okay? Like, for example, you want to go to a friend's house, and they don't allow you to go, right? Or, for example, there's a, you know, a little child and he wants his like temp cookie, right. And the parents don't allow that. It's not out of spite. Okay? It is to protect their children. And again, this shows us the justice of your colbray Center. He did whatever he could to protect all of his children. So why would he not send use of early send them with his other sons? There could be different reasons, perhaps he saw how they were negligent about him. Or perhaps he saw how they bullied him, right? Or
how they ganged up against him? Or how they would perhaps ignore him. So in order to protect them from hurting yourself, and in order to protect the user from getting hurt by them, what would your Cobra listen and do it seems as if he would separate them he would not, he would not let them be together, and he would not let them be together alone. All right. And this is something that parents sometimes need to do, I do that as a mother, right? When I see that, for example, kids are fighting, I separate them, I do not let them be together, right one is in one room, the other is in the other room, they have their own alone time. Because sometimes children can be, you know, a source of you
know fitna for each other. And if you just let them be and say that, you know what, let them fight, that's unfair, because one child is getting bullied, right? And another child is now you know, developing that bad habit of bullying and hurting others. So it's in the best interest of all of such children to be separated when they are, you know, prone to hurting one another. Right.
And it's also possible and another reason why your Cobra Sena would not send use of with them is because use for this and I was younger, right? And his other children would, would take the animals for pasture. And when you do that you go far off, you know, from home. So use, for example, perhaps was younger. And another reason could be that the use of artists and it's possible that he was more into learning from your Colbert escena. Right, that was his strength. And the other children their strength was, you know, taking animals for pasture, and, and other work. And that was their strength. And this is actually good judgment of parents when they give to each child. What that
child needs. This is not about being unfair. This is about giving to each child, what the child needs. So they said Malika Lata manarola Yusuf, we're in Allah hulan lc home. You know, we want the best for him. Give us a chance, please. We'll show you and they said our cell humara Anna, I will say who sent him Marana with us rather than tomorrow. mean tomorrow when we go take our animals for pasture. Send him with us.
Why. So that yellow Atari, he will eat well weigh a lab and he will play what in the hula half alone and you don't need to worry, because we're going to diligently guard him, we're going to protect him, he will be safe.
So they said, Send him with us tomorrow. yellowtop this word, the author is interesting. It's from the router rotta ion and it basically means two things.
urata is to eat at pleasure, okay, meaning to eat and drink whatever one wants. So they said send him with us so that he can enjoy himself eating, right, different things, different fruits, wherever we're going to go, you know, he's going to have fun. And then secondly, the thought is to come and go. And this is specifically for, you know, for, for example, animals, their common goal, you know, in the, in the pasture by day,
where there's plenty of food, plenty of grass, so that they can eat comfortably. So your thought meaning he will enjoy himself running around, you know, going here and there. Were lab and he will play.
So basically, they're saying that you know what, you surf is missing out, and we feel bad for him. So, let him come with us tomorrow. Let him eat. Let him enjoy running around and let him play with us. And we're going to protect him. We're going to you know, take care of him and guard him. Notice how first of all they say we're in Allahu lanell say when we want the best for him we are sincere to him and now they say we're in Allah hula healthy alone, we're going to guard him we're going to protect him we're going to take care of him. You see people who whose actions are not loud enough right. who fall short in their actions, they have to make up for it through words right. So look at
how much they have to try to convince their father that we are sincere sincerity shows right? We will guard and protect that also shows so remember that when a person is falling short in their actions they try to make up for through their talk. This is why they have to keep saying we are announcing whom we are happy loon color. Now use of his Salaam he's sorry, Your Kubernetes Anam. He said to them that in the layer has Zuni that indeed it saddens me, right. It makes me very sad. And this is from Frozen how zighy known which is to grieve over losing something that one likes. Okay. So he said, it makes me sad. And that hub will be here that you should take him. Meaning if you take
him for the entire day. I'll miss him too much. What a half a year cooler. Whoo, whoo. And at the same time, I fear that a wolf will eat him.
Why would a wolf eat him? Not because you're not strong enough to guard and protect him? Because but because you're human and we're unto mind will often own while you are unaware of him. You know, while you're busy with something you're not really paying attention, it's possible that a wolf comes and eats and so not blaming you I'm just saying that it's possible this can happen.
So your Kubernetes salami was very honest over here, look at the honesty right of of your Kubernetes and I'm and look at the dishonesty of these brothers.
How is he honest? He says that I I will miss him if he's gone. Right. And secondly, I worry for his safety.
Now, it shows that really your Kubernetes Cena was hesitant in sending use of RDS and I'm with them right and some say that you know what? He came up with this excuse that I fear that a wolf will eat him because how could a wolf eat a boy right and even if a wolf you know kills a boy okay yes that's possible. But you know perhaps he was making this making an excuse over here to not send use of early cinema with them.
So what did the brothers of use of our Hey Salaam do did they comply? Did they say Okay father, we understand your concern. We trust your you know your instinct. Carlo they said let in Akela who the book if a wolf eats him when neurospora while we are a strong clan in that either Lucha see rune than surely we will be among the losers that we will
Then be surely losers.
Meaning How is it possible for a wolf to eat him while we are there to protect him? And if we are not able to protect him, then what good is there in us, then we're losers. You know, there's no good in us. So again, what their words they're trying to show their sincerity. Right. But what's, you know, really sad over here is the fact that they are insisting and arguing until they get their father to agree.
And this is something that any is good in some situations that you don't just accept a no for an answer, right, that you insist and insist until the other party agrees, you know, you should have that, you know, that determination.
But at the same time, you know, insisting and making people uncomfortable, and insisting so that they finally comply and they agree with you. This is actually not a good strategy any it makes, it hurts other people. We see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever he, you know, decided something that affected the companions, he would consult them. And this is something that Allah mentions in the Quran, where shall we will consult the companions? Right? And when the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam consulted them, sometimes, you know, it was such that what they wanted was very different from what the Prophet salallahu earning said and wanted, like, for example, the
Battle of boyhood, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to defend Medina from the inside. But there were companions who were very eager to go out and have a full on battle.
But and when the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, and saw that, you know, this is what they really want to do. He agreed with them. And then afterwards, even though some people you know, they felt bad that they had insisted, and they went and apologized to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that, you know, once the armor has been put on, it's not going to be removed. You know, once we have made our decision, this is it, we're gonna stick to our plan.
So we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not force, you know, people to agree with him. And this is something very, very important. There needs to be a balance, you shouldn't be a pushover, right? That you just accept whatever people say. But at the same time, you shouldn't be stubborn, that you never consider what others are saying. And the same thing is important within our families. That you know, be be accommodating Don't insist and beg and argue until the other party you know, is forced to agree with you right at some some kids Subhanallah any they have this really bad habit that you know, if they want something they will keep insisting, insisting, insisting,
insisting until the parents you know, they just get fed up and they get tired and just to make their children quiet, they will surrender that they will give in and this is something that parents generally should not do, right.
So cannula in accola who they were not notice button in either lohaus Iran, then we will surely be losers. Now notice how your Cobra Salaam You know, he expressed his fears, right, his apprehension and look at how they respond to him that How could a wolf eat him ever needs him? You know what, what good is there in us? It's almost as if they're mocking you know, their father. They're laughing at their father that How is this possible?
And this is something that unfortunately many children are guilty off. You know, when parents mentioned something,
a lot of times children will make fun of them, right and these days Subhanallah you know, mothers are being given
certain certificates of graduating from WhatsApp University, etc. Any you know, if your mother is sharing with you that you should have for example, honey and lemon and ginger, etc, to boost your immunity, you know, what's wrong with that all right. Why why mark one mark at your parents, you know, sometimes parents do say things which are wrong or which are which may be backward or which may not be backed by any proof evidence whatsoever. And you can just say, interesting, instead of making fun of them and hurting their feelings,
because annoying one's parents hurting one's parents. This is something that does not befit any a righteous person at all. You can disagree with your parents, you can you can know and believe that they
They are wrong, that they are misinformed and you can tell them about that. But it is not correct to, to laugh at your parents, right? laughing at anybody mocking at anybody is wrong but mocking your own parents any This is unacceptable. We learn about Ibrahim I said I'm that how? Imagine his father worshipped idols, right, his father made idols and worship them. But Ibrahim Ray said he did not mock that his father, he did not belittle his father, he spoke to him in such a respectful way. And it really you need to have a conversation with your mom, for example, about WhatsApp messages, you can have that in a dignified way. You don't have to insult her. Right? You don't have to,
you know, make fun of her in front of your friends. This is extremely disrespectful. So this led in a color with a bow and arrows button in either the hospital. So basically, they argued and argued until your Culebra his salon looked like the bad guy. Right? They basically what they were implying was that you do not trust us. You are depriving use of of having fun, and you have irrational fears. Right? So they they made your Cobra serum look like a bad guy. And they, they got him to agree they insisted on insisted until your Cobra Sam gave up. And they used lies, they used trickery, they used any false olds in order to get him to agree.
And when it comes to lying, remember, this is something very, very dangerous. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, he warned us that lying. And, you know, lying is something that leads to sin. And sin leads to hell. And a person keeps on lying, until he is written as a liar near Allah subhanaw taala.
And we can see over here how they lied so many times, not just one lie, they lied multiple times, when they said for example, you don't trust us. Right? And they said we are sincere to use of, and they said, use of will play and have fun and eat? No, their plan was to torture him. Right? And they said we will guard him No, they weren't planning to guard him at all. And then they said How could a wolf eat him you know, we are there to protect him. That was also a lie.
So, they lied not just once but multiple times. And you see, earlier I mentioned that how one sin leads to another. So you have to stop right at the beginning. And if you notice, all of these these problems, right? All of these sins that the brothers of us have arisen and fell into began with what with backbiting? Okay, the jealousy was there. And and that is something that's not always in your control. But when you talk about it, when you act on it, that is where it becomes problematic. So what happened almost parents Allah says father, mother, Herb OBE, so when they took him away, meaning they managed to take use of his time away from his father. What did you Maru and they all
agreed a demo, this is from Mr. ismar is to unanimously agree to do something or upon something. So they all agreed, and he had your eye loo that they will put him philia button job in the bottom of the well, this is this was their plan.
And they did that. They, they took him to a well, they threw him in the well, and they left him there.
Notice how all those Pousada doesn't mention any of those gory details, okay, which well, it was the fact that they actually threw him into well, because you know what all those gory details are not the focus, nor are they details on which we should dwell.
What is important is the fact that what over hayner ilahi that Allah subhanaw taala consoled the use of a Salaam in that darkness, that Allah subhanaw taala comforted use of early said I'm in that loneliness and in that fear in that place where you suffer I said I'm had been abandoned by his brothers stolen from his father, right? Allah subhanaw taala consoled him and Allah subhanaw taala brought him comfort.
And remember, that when something terrible happens, at the same time, something good is all
So happening, right? It goes together hand in hand. Because remember, there is no decree of Allah except that it has something good in it. And something good that will come out of it. Because Allah subhanaw taala, via the he'll hide in his hand is all good. Meaning whatever comes from him is also good. Right? So when we're experiencing something difficult, yes, that is painful, yes, that is hard. But along with that difficulty along with that, you know, that loss, or that pain is also a benefit. All right. And this is something that each and every single one of us, you know, needs to focus on. And this is a skill that we need to develop that in that in every difficulty, we also seek
the ease, because Allah tells us in the mind loosely, you saw that way the difficulty is ease. So for example, these days, yes, you know, we are stuck at home. And yes, we can make a whole list of things that are not working in our favor things that we are, indeed finding hard, and there is no denying that. Right? That Yes, things are tough. Yes, things are hard. Yes, things are painful. Yes, our life has been turned upside down. And we don't know when this ordeal is going to end. Right. And these are times which, you know, we never expected and we almost don't know how to navigate through them. Alright, so a lot of people have lost their jobs, a lot of people don't know how and when they
will be graduating, right? Or this is not at least the graduation that they expected. Right? A lot of people are worried about their, their school, their their career, their next term and, and completing their degree on time. Every individual has their own concerns. Some people are at home, and they're not really getting along well with their families. And every day is very, very difficult. Some people are stuck with, you know, family members who are abusing them. Right. There are mothers who are constantly working constantly working without any break. So any absolutely, there is difficulty. But each and every single person needs to look at their own life. Okay. We're
not going to be judging other people's lives and say things like, oh, they're having it's so easy, right? They're so lucky. No, instead of thinking, you know, judging other people's lives, look at your own life. And see, yes, you know, embrace and acknowledge the difficulty that you're experiencing. Don't deny that because it is a reality. Right? They threw him in the well, it's effect. All right. And just like that, you are experiencing hardship, acknowledge that, embrace it, but don't just dwell on the hardship. Also look at the ease that Allah Spano Tata has given you at this moment, right? And remember, that when a person focuses on gratitude, right, then what happens
is that their their blessings also increase, because gratitude is something and patience is something that brings about Allah subhanaw taala approval.
So you need what they did with use of rice and I was terrible, but notice how all of those details have been left out. And the focus is entirely on what what oh hanaa la de la tuna be unknown be Emily him Heather wahoo, Leia, Sharon, we inspire to him, Allah subhanaw taala tells us that he did what he to use of early his Salah at this time. And it has said that this where he was actually way, meaning this is where use of it send and receive the first revelation. Okay. And others say that no, the use of our listener was too young at this at this point. This was not revelation as a prophet receives it. But this was, you know, an inspiration, meaning as a message that was conveyed to him,
just as a message was conveyed to
you know, the mother of Mussolini SNM, for example. So Allah subhanaw taala told him through whatever means that he, he did that led to not be unknown, that surely you serve, you will indeed inform them this is from Nebo Okay, you will indeed inform your brothers of what be Amity him here that have this affair of theirs, which affair of theirs, of how they lied to your father, how they cheated you they cheated your father, and they now abandoned you in this world.
You will inform them well whom lie a shrewd on and they will not perceive they will not realize what is it that they will not realize the fact that it is you your identity.
Why is it that they will not realize because it will be after a very long time.
or because they will never expect that, that you will reach the position that you will.
So, almost pantherella revealed to him in this distress.
And Allah subhanaw taala gave him good news. That use of it, Sam, you know he will survive, that almost parents will unite him with his family again. And that allows parents I will bring him before his brothers from a position of strength and honor. So, do not grieve basically, do not give up. So we see over here, how Allah subhanaw taala comforted use of Ernie Salaam and just imagine a child in a well thrown by his brothers. If you ever feel that if you haven't realized that someone has betrayed you, you know, they've cheated you. And imagine now use for his salon was distanced from his family and he this is this is such a terrible feeling. Right?
But Allah subhanaw taala consoled him and this is something that can bring us sobral as well, that you know what, what the other party has done? Yes, they are wrong, yes, they are guilty, but Allah will not deprive me. Allah will not let me only suffer, right? That is through the suffering or in the suffering despite the suffering of us panel data will take care of me. So it is very important that we develop that
ability to focus on what we are gaining. And to have hope and not give up. That Yes, we are stuck here. But this is not gonna last forever.
So now use of early cinemas in the well. And what happens to his brother is what do they do? Allah tada says word Yeah, who about whom are you share and you have a corn wedge out Oh, and they came, meaning the brothers of use of RNA Sam, they came to who about whom their father when Russia and at night? And how did they come? In? What state? Yeah, because they were weeping. They were crying.
So the first thing is that they came at night. Why did they go home at night? This was later than usual. And they did that to show that something terrible had happened. You know, they were delayed by something that was beyond their control. Something terrible had happened.
And then secondly, they came in the night. Why? Because in the night to the darkness, and in the darkness, it's easier to pretend. Right? Because they weren't really actually crying. This was fake crying. So it was easier to fake that crying in the darkness. And remember that a shot is the beginning of of the night, the first part of the night.
So they came crying and Carlo they said yeah abana or our Father in the hair banana still vehicle. We went racing okayness dobbiaco from seeing back of his debarked is to try to get ahead of each other. So we were racing each other meaning we were playing. And we thought oh can I use so far in them a tarina. And we left to use surf with our possessions. Why? To keep an eye
or because he could not participate in the race.
So we left him with our possessions. And what happened? When we came back we found for accola who a wolf ate him.
And then they said when our anti B movement Ilana and you were never going to believe us. What Oh, canalside your team, even if we were truthful,
because you don't trust us. So again, we see that they're aligned, right? Remember, a person keeps on lying, until they're recorded as a liar. And we see that again. They're blaming their father, that even though we're truthful, you're not going to believe us. You suspect us of lying. So you know what it's a lose lose situation for us you know, some people have this attitude woe is me right so they say that the problem is new you don't trust us well my until we moved Manila well canal saw the thing. And now in order to prove themselves what did they do what Joe or other communist he beat them in? khabib they brought upon his shirt, false blood. them in caddy them his blood Kadhim is
literally a lie. Meaning that blood was not actual, you know, actually use of Sam's blood This was from something else.
They brought his shirt with fake blood on it.
Why to prove that he
Here's the shirt of use of Look, he was killed a wolf ate him.
Did your Cobra Salaam accept that? No he didn't. Either. He said belt some whether it's locum and foster komamura. Rather, your souls have enticed you to something. What a dignified response. He didn't say You're lying. He didn't say, You know what? I'm going to beat you up until you tell me the truth. And I'm going to ground you and I'm going to do this and that until you tell me the truth and you bring use of back. jacobellis was not harsh, right? And he said, so well at locum. unphysical mamre your knifes your own? Does your own soul made something? so wrong? Easy for you? So what am I going to do for Southern Jamil? I'm just going to observe beautiful patients will love
when Stan and Allah is the one from whom I will seek help Allah matassa for over what you lie.
So we see that your Cobra Islam didn't believe them.
Why did he not believe them? Because they use the very excuse that he had made. Right? He said that I fear if you take him, Well, the wolf will eat him. And now they said that the wolf ate him.
And secondly, he did not believe them. Because any How could they? How is it that the wolf ate the boy but left his shirt?
Anyway, how is that possible that the wolf take the shirt off and then eat him? Or did the wolf eat em eat em eat him and finished his body completely until only the shirt was left? Any How is that possible? Alright, so this is why it was obviously a fake evidence. So you're populism did not fall for that. And ultimate remember jacobellis and I knew about the dream of use of and he knew that use of could not have died. So he said both serve well at Lancome and for sukoon Umrah. Now, this is something very important that we need to understand. You see the word sub wallet. This is from the root scene while lamb.
And a soul is an object of desire or wish meaning something that you really want something that you really like.
Now, sometimes the things that we like the things that we want, are not are not really good for us. Right? They're not. They're not right, we should not do them. We should not have them. It's not It's not right. It's not good for us. It's unfair, or it's unlawful.
So if the soul wants something, but at the same time, you know that it's not good for you? How is it that you're going to, you know, justify it for yourself? Right? There's different ways. One is that you use start thinking about all the fun and all the good that is in it. And this is the sweet,
the sweet is the solds embellishing of a thing that it eagerly desires, okay? Meaning when the soul makes the desired object look so good. And even though the desired object or what the person desires is actually wrong, or is actually bad,
you begin to justify it or you begin to perceive it as something good.
You know, for example,
killing use of early cinema, or throwing him in the well. Any, how could anyone accept it? throwing him in the well I mean, how could a person justify it's wrong wrong, right? It's wrong, lying to your own father, such an affectionate father, a prophet of Allah, any This is wrong. But how can a person in do something that they know is wrong? When they begin to perceive it as something good when they begin to perceive it as something good, and this is why where we need to seek Allah's protection against the evil of shaitan we also need to seek Allah's protection against the evil of the knifes because you know what your nuts also plays with you. Your desire also plays with you, you
know something is wrong, but you convince yourself that you know what, it's okay. It's okay. It's actually fun. It's actually great. Right? And there's different ways of the sweet.
There's different ways where for example, you stop focusing on the harm and you start focusing on on the fun aspect of it, or on the on the benefit of it. Right and another way of the sweet
is when the soul makes it easy. It's something that is so serious, but you perceive it as something not that big of a deal as something light.
So he said both someone at Lancome and for SOCOM amila that this was something so huge, so serious, but you convinced yourselves to do it. So that you consider to be small, you don't consider to be a big deal. And even though you know deep down that it's wrong, but you still believe that it was good for you, but somewhat a telecom and physical camera.
So he said for saloon Jamil. So my way is going to be of Southern Jamil are beautiful patients, meaning I am going to observe beautiful patients and I am going to seek Allah's help over the lies that you have said to me. Now, this is very interesting. He said, I am going to observe sablon Jamil.
Does that mean that somebody can also be ugly? Yes, it can be there is a suburb that is beautiful. And there is a suburb that is not beautiful. Okay. Now generally, when we think about sub we think that somebody is very bitter, it's very hard. You know, it's, it's not very pleasant. But the fact is that subud can also be beautiful.
How is it that subud can be beautiful? Let's look at the meaning of the word Southern Southern is literally to confine or restrain oneself. Okay, restrain oneself. Now, let me give you an example to help you understand.
You see, there are people who will eat a salad as if they're being punished. Right. And there are other people who eat a salad, and they will enjoy every single bite.
Right? There are people who will stay away from unhealthy food. And that is so hard for them. Right? And they act as if they're being punished, they're being tortured. And there are other people who will actually choose to stay away from those things. Right? And they're there, they're really fine with not having with not eating those unhealthy foods. What's the difference? The difference is that one person has embraced a certain reality, and the other person has not embraced it.
Right? The first person has not embraced it, which is why when they don't get that sugary food, you know, they they look as if they're going to die, when they have to get on the treadmill, it's as if somebody is torturing them. Right? When they're given that salad to eat. It's as if someone has done a great injustice to them, you can see it on their face, in their complaints in their whining in their, you know, in their overall body language. It's so obvious and there is another person, right the second person they have embraced it, that you know what, for my well being, for my health, I need to make these changes, right? And when they make those changes, guess what, they embrace those
changes and with that, they live in so much dignity and peace. So saboom Jamil beautiful patients, the foundation of it is acceptance, right? acceptance of what acceptance of one's reality, that this is what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed for me. This happened by Allah's permission, and I will embrace it, I will accept it. So sablon Jamil is a suburb with Riba? Okay, with Reba, Reba meaning, being pleased with Allah's decree, accepting Allah's decree, right, being content with it, embracing it, and that, by definition means that a person will not be complaining all the time. That means that a person will not be whining all the time. Right? Yes, they are. They may be struggling, right?
It's not always easy. They are struggling, but they're not going to go on complaining all the time. They're not going to be like that first person who is you know, fussing over a salad that that what is this? You know that then they're complaining about it constantly.
And remember that Southern jimmied is a suburb
Okay, it is a suburb where there is a reserve meaning dignity and composure.
All right, that is what makes up that that patient's beautiful, how is their dignity and composure that a person is not, you know, whining and fussing before people and complaining and all that they can do is just
scream and yell and say words that are inappropriate, nos sub Jamil is sub ruler is. Okay. And then thirdly, Southern Jamil is a suburb of FDR, FDR, as in you choose to be patient. Right? You you make that decision that you know what I am going to respond to this with patients. One kind of subject is
the subject of
meaning. And if there are, which is that, you know what, I don't have a choice, right? I don't have a choice, what can I do, which is like that person who has given a salad. So you know, they're really upset, they don't want to eat, they're sitting in a bad mood, they've got the worst facial expression. And with every bite, you know what, they eat it, and then they complain. And then they take another bite, and then they're moping. And, you know, they're visibly upset. But you know what, they do end up finishing that salad. But with great difficulty.
Right? This is not the subject of choice. This is a subject of compulsion. That you know what, I can't do anything about it. So, whatever, I hate this, I hate this, I hate this, I hate this, but what can I do?
Southern Jamil is somewhat of FTL, meaning you choose to be patient, you know, you decide that you know what, this is what Allah has decreed for me, and I am going to respond to this with composure. I am going to respond to this with acceptance. And this is what makes patients beautiful, and this is what brings fortitude. So he said for suburban Jamil. And this is something that we all need to think about. Because every day, you know, we learn about new things. And, you know, news that that frightens us, that scares us, that tells us that our plans are even more delayed, or now they're certainly going to be canceled. Or everyday we we you know, face a new difficulty, a different kind
of a challenge. And there's two ways of responding. One is with impatience, right. And the other is with patients. One is with dignity. And the other is with you know, jezza right with complaints all the time. So your Kubernetes Anam imagine he lost his son. And you know, when you find out that
someone else came and killed your child, okay, you can have, you know, you can, it's easier to be patient, but when you know that your own children have done something, right. And they're lying to you, they have betrayed you, and God knows how they hurt your child. Honey, this is even more difficult. This is a greater challenge.
And when you know for sure that for example, someone killed your child, you have closure, but in this situation here corporatism had no closure. Alright, so he said for sovereign Jamil and he said, Well, Allahu mastan or Allah matassa for Allah is the one whose help I'm going to seek against what you see phone does the phone is from wasp and wasp is a description, meaning whatever you describe, whatever lies you are giving, I seek Allah's help. What happened with use of I said, Would you say Yella term for OSA lewrie the home on the other hand, there came a group of travelers were to the well and when they reach the well for our salary, the home they sent there, what it what it is from
the root letter as well then, and rude is to arrive at a watering place. Basically people will travel in groups and they would send individuals ahead, you know, in different directions to look for water. So the person who would go looking for water was a wetted. So the center water door. What did he do? He found this well, and when he came to this well, for Adela he lowered Delaware who his bucket. Both of these words are from the same root that well, he dropped his bucket. He let down his bucket into the well. And when he began pulling it up, he sees that there is a boy Okay, corner he said, Yeah, Bushra when he looks down into the wall and he sees his, you know, bucket, he's trying
to pull it up. He sees that there is a boy. He says yeah, Bush law. Oh, what good news. Okay, Bush rock. Good news. Heather hulan. This is a boy. Why was it good news for them? Were they interested in adopting a child? No, this was free. You know, a property because at that time, people, you know, human beings were sold as slaves. So, this guy said what good news. This is a young boy.
And meaning we can sell him and we can make a whole lot of money. What is a Ruby Lara, and they concealed him as merchandise, they get him right away. I said rule we've seen a lot or to conceal something. Why did they conceal him so that nobody would see him and recognize him that you know what this boy is from this area? He must have fallen? No, they conceal them as merchandise as something to sell. Willa, who are Lehman be my arm balloon and Allah was fully aware of what they were doing.
Think about it now. Use of Ernie snam. He's discovered by these people and they don't even bother to ask him. Where are you from? How can you hear? Is everything okay? They don't care about us about his time at all. All they want to do is just get rid of him quickly, to make money. And Allah subhanaw taala says will love Arlene won't be mayor Malone. And this is so important when people are mistreating you. Right. When people are mistreating you, you feel neglected. You feel that people are being unfair with you. Remember, what Allah who are leaving won't be my arm alone. Allah is fully aware of whatever that people are doing. Their injustice is not unknown to Allah. And Allah
will bring about justice, he will give you what you deserve. So what did these people do? Wash a row who be feminine boxin was shallow who and the sold him Shin wires, the root be feminine box in Thurman is a price that you get for selling something or the price that you pay for buying something. So they sold him in exchange for a theremin a value that was bucks, now bucks is reduced. Okay, meaning they didn't really sell him for the value that he was worth. And that is true, right? Because first of all, no matter who it is, there's no money, you know, there's no price tag that you can attach to a human being. Right. And then secondly, he was use of how could any price tag, you
know, be equal his worth? It's not possible. Right? And then thirdly, this was, you know, they actually sold him for a very little price. Why did they do that? Because they wanted to get rid of him quickly. Because when you find lost property, right, or when you steal some goods, you want to get rid of them quickly, before the actual owner, you know, they come and claim it. So this is why they got rid of him very quickly. And they settled for a very low price. And what was that low price, Allah tells us the raw human mardu that in the raw him, Durham, Durham is silver coin. So, it was not gold coins, it was silver coins and silver coins are of less value than gold coins, right?
And mardu the thing, very few, right countable very, very few will count or feel human as a heading.
And they were in regard to him. Of those who are they're heading those who had Zoho, and Zoho does to have no interest in something or very little interest in something to be contented with little, right. So they didn't really care about us. Basically, they really didn't care about him. They just wanted the money quickly. So they really devalued him, they did not see his worth, they did not treat him the way he deserved to be treated. And if you think about it, use of Edison, um, he was handsome, he had great luck, right? But the people up with these travelers, they did not notice any of that. Right.
And this happens, you know, use a burly salon, his father loved him so much that he did not want to be separated from him for even a day. Right. And here, these people, they found him this hold him, they didn't care about him. And this happens, there are people who will love you, and there are people who will not care about you at all. And this is the reality of this world.
And another thing that is important is that we should pray to Allah subhanaw taala to give us the ability to see things for what they are. Any they had no idea about who they were dealing with. They had, they were not interested in us. They just wanted the money. And oftentimes this happens with us also that we have an opportunity, a great opportunity before us. But we're so short sighted. We just want the immediate benefit, and we don't look at the big picture. Right? And this is what happens when people become selfish and greedy. And fear overcomes them. And these days, a lot of people are experiencing this because we're all fearful, you know of the immediate future and we're not
concerned about the long
Run about the big picture. So as Carlos panatela to give you insight, to give you wisdom to give you the fortitude to make the right decisions and not hasty decisions, so that the great opportunities that are lost pantalla is giving us are not overlooked by us. So, this is in Sharla where we will conclude for today and then tomorrow we will learn about how use of raised Salaam ended up in Egypt, right that's where he was sold and how, even though people try to harm him, in reality, what happened is that Allah subhanaw taala brought him only good.
So inshallah we'll conclude you're over here. If there's any questions inshallah you can send them and I can address them in our next class in sha Allah. De Xochimilco, Haytham cathedra.
