while a jewel and surely reward an ophira of the hereafter. Hiram is better little Latina, for those who am I know, they believed what can Oh, and they used to get the cone, they adopt consciousness of Allah, or they safeguard themselves.

00:13:14--> 00:13:28

So inshallah we'll try our best to cover verses 36 to 57. I understand the verses are many, the lesson is quite long, but inshallah, I hope you'll be able to memorize the translation and hamdulillah A lot of you have

00:13:29--> 00:13:39

handled a lot a lot of time on your hands. So, I hope it will not be difficult for you. And the reason why I wanted to cover all of these verses today is because

00:13:40--> 00:13:55

all of these verses are basically the the next chapter you could say, of the story of use of Ernie his salon, which is the the fourth chapter, you could say or the fourth scene of the story of use of his salon.

00:13:56--> 00:14:02

So in the previous verses, we learned about how when you suffer the salon was repeatedly invited to sin,

00:14:03--> 00:15:00

first by the wife of Aziz. And then when she gathered all of these women and she proved to them as to why she was so attracted to use of race. And then all of them told use of race at home to be with her use of art. He said I am he chose to go to prison and be removed be far removed from this evil that was that that he was being pushed into. And we see over here that you suffer as salaam, any he chose the leather, the sweetness of Eman instead of the leather or the sweetness of any other pleasure and this is reason why he preferred going to prison. He chose to suffer worldly loss but he did not want to lose his integrity. He

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

did not want to compromise when it came to his religion, when it came to his duty to Allah subhanaw taala. And we see this in the way of the righteous, for example, we learned about remember Heidi, about how when he was traveling once on a boat, and he mentioned to someone about how, you know, he had a certain amount of money that men The next morning, he started screaming, and, you know, saying that I have lost this much money, someone stole it. And Pete the people of the boat began searching for the money and they couldn't find it. So the man eventually asked him Bahati, the Where did you put your money, How come nobody was able to find it? Remember, Heidi said that he threw it in the

00:15:40--> 00:16:36

water. And it said that that was about 1000 gold coins. So he threw it in the water, why? Because he did not want to put his any his his integrity at risk, that he did not want to be known as someone who had stolen even if it was a false accusation, that he did not want to be known as that because in his reputation mattered a lot. He was recording and transmitting words that were attributed to the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. So any he he was okay with worldly loss. But he did not want to put his reputation at risk. And we see over here that use have already said, and he was okay with going to prison, but he did not want to compromise when it came to his religion. And certainly

00:16:37--> 00:17:12

any going to prison is something that is very, very difficult. It was very, very hard. One can only imagine. I mean, in this day and age, we see how there's so many people who are incarcerated, and they don't deserve to be in prison. And they're, they're living through such difficult conditions. And you're suffering is Salaam, of course, he also experienced great difficulty when he was in prison. But we see uni in these verses how everything worked out, in the favor of use of re husana.

00:17:13--> 00:18:09

We see how this difficulty also became a part of his learning and a part of his growth, it became a step towards his success, we see that when you suffer a sinner was in the house of the disease, he got to see the society from a very different perspective. And now in the prison, he got to see the people who are truly oppressed. So he understood that society, he he he saw that society from the from the top and also from the bottom. And we see that the time that he spent in prison certainly provided him solitude, which in fact, is essential for self development. You know, there are people who will choose to isolate themselves, who will who will choose to, you know, spend time in

00:18:09--> 00:18:34

solitude. Why? Because it's very important for self reflection for self development. So even though any use of array Sam when he was sent to prison, this was something completely unfair. But remember, that at the end of the day, nothing that happens to a believer is bad for him or her.

00:18:35--> 00:18:56

Everything that happens to a believer is in fact good for the believer. For the believer, there is no failure. Difficulties bring you experience, difficulties allow you to grow. And this is what happened with use of race and I'm also so let's begin with verse number 36 in sha Allah

00:18:57--> 00:19:27

Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim, Allah Subhana Allah says what the Hala Mara, who said you know, Fattah Yan with the hola and they're entered Mara, who with use of res Salaam, meaning at the same time, a cijena into the prison, who entered with him at the same time for the young, two young men that are young This is the dual of the word fatter and fatter is used for a young man or even a servant or a slave. And it is said that these two men

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

there were royal servants who had been accused of plotting to poison the kink. So they entered the prison with use of a center. What happened call it a huduma. One of them said meaning to use of it is that any irony that indeed I saw meaning myself in my dream, that are acetal hombre that I am pressing wine are acetal this is from Asana and Asana is to squeeze to press.

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

So I am pressing meaning grapes or whatever else. I'm pressing that in order to make wine. We'll call it a hole and the other man said that in the Irani indeed I saw myself meaning in my dream, I made a phone call that I am carrying above a lot see my head HUBZone bread that I saw in my dream that I am carrying bread on my head. And this bread is such that that qualified birds are eating men who from it now beat navitat wheelie, they both said that please inform us tell us about its interpretation, meaning the interpretation of our dreams. Why? Because in an Iraq, Amina Morrison in Indian, we see you among those who do good.

00:20:48--> 00:20:54

Now, think about this out of all the people who could have entered the prison with use of radius.

00:20:56--> 00:21:06

It was these two young men. So remember, this was not accidental, because everything, whether it is big or small, is decreed by Allah Subhana.

00:21:07--> 00:21:57

Allah subhana wa tada is done with a bit which means that there is nothing in his creation that happens haphazardly. Nothing happens in his creation at random. Everything is planned, determined decreed. So these two young men entered the prison with use of early cinema at the same time, which means that they noticed him, right. They felt secure with him. And they even eventually shared their dreams with him. And they trusted what he said. Which is why they asked him to tell them what their dreams meant meant. They said in a bit now, but really in nanoka, meaning we're singing, I think about it, they could have forgotten about their dreams, right? I mean, you know, we have dreams all

00:21:57--> 00:22:15

the time. And we we tend to forget majority of our dreams, these two men could have also forgotten about their dreams. Or even if they remembered any they could have not mentioned them to use of race. Or they could have not asked him about the interpretation of these dreams, but they did.

00:22:17--> 00:23:02

Now think about use of earliest center, we learned that use of our SNM was blessed with the knowledge of the interpretation of dreams. And how good would that knowledge be if it was not put to use as long as use of our s&m was in the house of the disease, he was not interpreting the dreams of people, right? But now in the prison that he is with people he is accessible to people, he was able to use this knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala gave him right. So this is where you know where your Cobra said, I'm said where your eye lemo come into a Hadith, Allah will teach you the interpretation of dreams. This is where that is becoming a reality. And this could not have become a reality in the

00:23:02--> 00:23:09

house of the Aziz. As long as you suffer, he said I was in the house of the disease in he would not be able to put his knowledge to use.

00:23:11--> 00:23:30

Mr. Hassan buslee he said that do not dislike the difficulties or the trials that occur in your life. Why? Because it's quite possible that your salvation is in what you dislike. And your death is in what you give preference to.

00:23:31--> 00:24:14

Meaning things that you that you experience that are very hard, don't dislike them, right? don't resent them. Why? Because it's quite possible that the obstacle is the way meaning the the the obstacle or the difficulty that a loss Pandora has put in your path is the very road to your success. And what you what you desire, meaning ease, it's quite possible that that is the path to your destruction. So whatever that happens in your life, which is beyond your control, then don't resent it. Embrace it and see what Allah subhanaw taala is bringing to you through that hardship.

00:24:15--> 00:24:42

So now we see that these two men they they said to use a burning Sadam that we are asking you about the interpretation of our dreams because we see you among them are sinning. We see that you are at the mercy need who is a Morrison Watson is someone who does any who who who does a person right who was excellent in what they do. And remember that there's two aspects of your son one aspect of your son is their son in worshipping Allah soprano.

00:24:43--> 00:25:00

Alright. And the other aspect of your son is in in the in the way that a person deals with people when it comes to worshipping Allah Your son is that you worship Allah as though you see him when it comes to dealing with people Your son is that you are good to them. You're coming

00:25:00--> 00:25:33

To them, you're generous to them. So they said to him that we see that you are among them are singing. What did they mean by this? This could mean two things. One is that we see that you are of those who are good at interpreting dreams, meaning out of all people, you are really good at interpreting dreams. You You seem knowledgeable, wise and sensible. And why did they say this because perhaps they had seen him talking to people and interpreting their dreams for them.

00:25:34--> 00:26:21

And secondly, Morrison over here can also mean that we see you have those who are good to the people in the prison, meaning you are different, you are a good person. And you need this shows us that good character, if Sam, kindness, generosity, these are actually very attractive qualities. Because you see, as human beings, we we want relief, we want answers. So we turn to one another for help. And the people who help us the people who are generous with us, you know, with their time or with their kindness, then you are naturally attracted to them. So we see that even in the prison, Yusuf Ali Salaam was very resourceful, he was very helpful. And this is any,

00:26:23--> 00:27:05

this really shows that use of his salon was truly a lesson. He was described as a Morrison earlier also. And now again, he is described as Emerson. So remember that I'm worse than a person who is good and kind and excellent. Any in their in their dealings or in their worship, they're more so than in good times. And they're also more said in difficult times. A lot of times what happens with us is that we change with our circumstances, right? Meaning if people are good to us, we will be good to them. And if people are mean to us, we will be mean to them. But a Morrison is someone who is consistent in their ersan regardless of their circumstances.

00:27:06--> 00:27:13

So real qualities of a person, they're really they're truly revealed in in times of trial,

00:27:15--> 00:28:00

the true face of a person is revealed in hardship. So you suffer they said I was in worse than everywhere. And this shows us something very important thing about it. You surprised Anam was unjustly brought into Egypt, he was sold into slavery, right? And then he was mistreated. Even though he was the victim, he was silenced. And he was put in prison. Yet he was not spiteful, right, he did not have any hatred for the Egyptian people. And this is something that we see now, and this is also something that we see later, he did not develop a dislike for the Egyptian people because of how some individuals had treated him.

00:28:01--> 00:28:46

So, this is also something very important for us to remember because, you know, we have a bad experience with an individual of a certain race over a certain country and then we canceled the entire people the entire nation. So use of artists and I was not like that he treated people, not the way that people deserve to be treated unnecessarily, but how Allah subhanaw taala would want him to treat them. So they said in an alarming and worsening use of our data center, what did he do? Color he said to them, layer t Kumar Dolman, he said to them that layer D coma, it will not come to you to what will not come to you to borrow on food which food to the economy which you will be

00:28:46--> 00:29:42

provided in that except know but to coma I will have informed you all between E of its interpretation. Meaning, I will tell you about the interpretation of your dreams before your food comes to you. Why did he begin with this? Why did he simply tell them the interpretation of their dreams? Because first of all, use of a sudden any he wanted to take advantage or you know make use of this opportunity. These individuals were asking him about about their dreams, but use for this and I'm wanted to benefit them not just in terms of their you know, worldly matters. He also wanted to save them in the in the hereafter. So he wanted to give them Dawa. He wanted to tell them about

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

worshiping Allah subhanaw taala only. So he he first assured them that he was going to tell them the interpretation. And he gave them a timeframe because if you want someone to listen to you attentively, you know, assure them that you won't be long or short.

00:30:00--> 00:30:15

than that, you're not going to go on forever. And he wanted to make use of this opportunity. So this is why he told them that before your food comes, I will, you will know the interpretation of the dreams, I will tell you, meaning I will not be long.

00:30:16--> 00:30:56

Secondly, how did Yusuf Ali Salaam know that their food was coming? Because this is a matter of the future, right? And the future is part of the unseen. So use of our SNM was basically telling them over here, something about the future as a sign as an evidence of the fact that he knew some knowledge of the unseen. All right, because if you think about it, the interpretation of dreams, this is a matter of the unseen, right? How do you know what a dream really means?

00:30:57--> 00:31:18

And how can you know for sure, how can you know with certain knowledge, any, if anybody gives you the interpretation of your dream, they cannot say that this will certainly happen. But you suffer I said I'm could Why? Because what he knew was based on revelation. Right? What he knew was based on revealed knowledge.

00:31:19--> 00:32:07

So Yusuf Ali Salaam, first told them about something that was going to happen in the future so that these people would trust him. All right, these people would believe him, that, you know, the interpretation that I'm going to give you is not based on my whims. It's not based on my, you know, imagination. No, it is based on certain knowledge, which is given to me through revelation. This is similar to how, you know, reciting is part of the miracles that he was given was what would have been called be methaqualone, I can tell you about what you have just eaten. And I can tell you about the food that you have stored in your homes. Right. And there were certain locations where the

00:32:07--> 00:32:31

Prophet sallallaahu Writing Center was also given any the knowledge of certain things that were going to happen in the future? Why as an evidence that look, this person does not speak from his own desire, right, or his his whims, what he's telling you is based on certain knowledge, and that knowledge is not from himself, it is coming from someone and who is that someone that is Allah subhanaw taala.

00:32:32--> 00:32:46

So, this was useful for his Sam's way of, you know, assuring them and giving them the source of his knowledge. Okay, and that was revelation.

00:32:47--> 00:33:30

And also think about it you know, if someone tells you about something of the unseen then you wonder any Who are they are they assumed Sarah, are they magician? Do they have some divine powers like what are they? So use of artists Anam is telling them about the source of his knowledge that that that it is revelation. So he said ley de como down to the penny in the number two Kuma bittered really comma a comma before your food comes to you. And then he tells them that valley coma that are you all meaning this knowledge that I have, whether it is about the fact that your food is just about to come? Or it is the interpretation of, of the knowledge of the interpretation of your

00:33:30--> 00:34:13

dreams? This is mimma Alemany Robbie. This is from what my lord has taught me. Meaning. I have this knowledge because Allah gave this to me. My Lord gave this to me. And who am I in need the rock to militar Coleman. Indeed, I have left the religion of people who lay out me known a biller who do not believe in Allah, well whom bill a hero to whom caffee rune and their disbelievers in the hereafter. In other words, I believe in Allah, and I believe in the last day, I am different from the people that you see over here, my religion is different.

00:34:14--> 00:34:45

So the first thing we see here is that use of various Anam is, is not just going to give them the the interpretation of their dreams, he's also telling them about Allah subhanaw taala. Because remember that the prophets of Allah, were not only sent to rescue people from worldly hardship, they were also sent to save them from eternal hardship. This is the reason why the prophets of Allah benefited people.

00:34:47--> 00:34:55

Through the means that they were given, okay. But at the same time the prophets of Allah also invited people to,

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

to surrender to Allah. So for example, we see that the Prophet Solomon

00:35:00--> 00:35:00

Ready to sell and

00:35:02--> 00:35:53

he stopped people from burying their daughters. Right? But he didn't just tell people to not bury their daughters. He also told them to worship only Allah to leave idolatry. Right? Well, sorry, Sam, he rescued the bunny has sought you from the oppression of their own. But he also told them to worship only Allah solly Harrison and told people to be fair and their business etc, and also to worship only Allah. So in a manner he said and established a great kingdom, right. And he benefits so many people. And he also invited the Queen of Sheba, to worship only Allah, the Saudis, Sam, he healed the blind the leper, and he also invited people to worship only Allah. So use of it, Sam did

00:35:53--> 00:36:03

the same thing. He used the, the special gift that Allah had given him, which was the knowledge of the interpretation of dreams to help people.

00:36:04--> 00:36:51

But he didn't just help people in their worldly matters, he also invited them to worship Allah because that is what would ultimately save people in the hereafter. And this teaches us that whatever you that whatever we do, however, we, you know, choose to bring benefit to people. Whether it is that, you know, we want to we want to become a teacher, or, you know, some kind of technician or a doctor, or, you know, a birth doula or whatever it is that you know, you do. Use your platform to connect people to Allah subhanaw taala. Also, that is real service, that you benefit that you bring benefit to people here in their present life. And you also give them what will benefit them

00:36:51--> 00:37:37

forever. So you said earlier, Sam, he is in the prison. He's telling people about the interpretation of their dreams. And he's also giving Dawa. He's also calling people to the worship of Allah homely. And how does he do that? He begins by by telling them about the source of his knowledge. And then secondly, he mentioned two primary beliefs, which is the belief in Allah and the belief in the hereafter. And then he says, what the bar to militare Abba Ibrahim, what is help were called, and I have followed the religion of my forefathers. Who are they Ibrahim, who was his great grandfather is how, who was his grandfather and Dr. Koop, who was his father.

00:37:38--> 00:38:16

Why is he saying this? He's basically preparing the grounds, okay for, uh, for calling them to the worship of Allah alone. And what he's saying, essentially, is that what I believe what I practice is not something new. Okay, it is something that's well established. This is something that even my forefathers believed in. This is something that my forefathers practiced. And he's not boasting over here. But he's confidently stating his background. Why is so that he is believable. So this is not self projection, he's just telling them about his background so that people believe him.

00:38:17--> 00:39:04

And then he says, McKenna learner and mushnik are below him in shape. It is not appropriate for us it is not allowed for us that we associate any partner with Allah at all. Meaning, it is not right for us to practice idolatry at all. And remember that schicke is something that is not allowed for anyone, no exceptions whatsoever, even the prophets of Allah are not allowed. In the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah mentions several prophets and then he says when shuckle lahab you burn Huma kameyama, Luna, if they associated partners with Allah, whatever they did, would be wasted. All of their deeds would be nullified. So he you know, he talks about himself, he says, it is not right for us, it is

00:39:04--> 00:39:55

not correct for us, that we associate partners with Allah. And then he said that he come and follow the law here, Alina, this is from the favor of Allah on us. What is the favor of Allah on us revelation and the fact that he saved us from ship and wildness and this is also a favor on all people that Allah subhanaw taala sent to us as prophets as messengers to call people to Allah to tell people about Allah. When I came to occur on se NIOSH Quran, but most of the people do not show gratitude, meaning for this favor, so which is why they turn away they do not pay attention. They don't believe when I came to UCLA, NASA is grown. And then he tells them yell Sahiba is Sydney. Now

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

he comes. You know, he talks about though he'd direct

00:40:00--> 00:40:26

Okay, so first he establishes his background, you know, what am I to say this? Where do I get this from? He establishes his background, his credibility, and then he gives them logical evidence, right? He says yes Sahiba you Sydney Oh my two companions of the prison sahibi this is actually the Sahih Bane, which is the dual of Sahib. Okay, and the plural is us hub.

00:40:27--> 00:40:45

So, he says, My two companions of the prison, this is so beautiful, that use of Islam talks to them on common grounds, right, so that there is no strangeness that, you know, you're in prison, I am in prison, you know, here, you know, where it's similar, where we're here together.

00:40:47--> 00:41:18

And this is something very, very important, you know, the prophets of Allah, when they address their people, they would say, yeah, call me or my people, meaning I am from you, we are together. Right? And, and this is something very important because the moment you show yourself as someone who is very, you know, pious and better, etc, then people feel intimidated, they feel distant. So you suffer the SNM. He makes them comfortable, he makes them he makes himself relatable,

00:41:19--> 00:42:09

so that they feel comfortable with him. He says, Oh, my two companions of the prison unbabel with a federal corner. Hi, Ron, are multiple, separate God's better, are bad and bad is a Florida for Rob. And Rob is Lord, right master God, with a fairly home. This means different ones, Florida with the federal and different ones. Of course, that implies multiple, several, right? And it also implies that, you know, one God has a certain power and another God has a different power, and the third one has another power. So they vary in terms of their numbers, they vary in terms of their characteristics and their powers and their abilities. Is that better divided gods? Is that better? I

00:42:09--> 00:42:10

mean level we're headed

00:42:12--> 00:42:23

or is Allah better? Who is Allah and we're head, the one the single meaning, the one who has all divine powers within him,

00:42:25--> 00:43:11

meaning divine powers are not divided, they are all in Allah subhanaw taala. So, we see that Allah subhanaw taala, he is Rob. So he is the Hadith of the Malik than with a bit he is also ILA. He is also the one who is worshipped, right, he gives life he gives death, eating, he owns everything. Everything is in his control. He is unguided. And alcohol, the prevailing alcohol This is from thought of her as an artist to conquer, to compel or to subjugate. Soca, how is the one who is extremely or supremely dominant, the one who has absolute control before whom everything is submissive.

00:43:12--> 00:43:38

So he asks them a very simple, logical question, right? And he leaves them to think about it, so that they can use their mind that you know what's better, many gods with divided powers and divided abilities or one supreme prevailing God, what is better? He lets them figure out the answer themselves, because the answer is very obvious.

00:43:39--> 00:44:20

Now, what happens is that when it comes to idolatry, people will say, well, we worship these idols because this is what our forefathers did. Alright, so now he says, Matt are Boone, I mean, dude, he is a smart. You worship not besides him except mere names, meaning these idols that you are these multiple gods that you worship, what is their reality? They have no reality. They're just abstract ideas that you have named. Right? Just like a fictional character. Right? What is the reality of a fictional character is just to name right.

00:44:22--> 00:45:00

You know, any fictional character, is it real? It's not, it's imaginary. It's an imaginary concept. Right? He who must not be named, right? It's an imaginary concept. And then it's given a name a label, right? And entire story is created about him. Right? Like, who is this mind? flayer? Like, what is the reality? It's just a name, right? It's a fictional character. So he says that the idols that you made that you worship, these are just names, some way to move her. You all have named them. You have given them these

00:45:00--> 00:45:47

names, who until you were about to come and your forefathers. So he says that your father, your forefathers, your ancestors, you know, they just came up with these concepts and they gave them names. And now you treat these concepts as gods and you worship them. Is there any evidence, man's that Allah will be humming so Pon Allah has not sent any proof for that. Meaning Allah has not given you any authority, any evidence to come up with these, you know, concept idols and then worship them, you have no evidence for this. In in Hoku, inland Illa legislation is not but for Allah, meaning a hokum entirely belongs to Allah. What does that mean? That it is only Allah Who has the

00:45:47--> 00:46:14

power to decide, decide what, who you worship? And it is only Allah who's hokum, who's whose command prevails, it is carried out, meaning whatever he decides happens, and what your Gods decide in the first of all, they don't decide anything. Right? And if you guys come up with something, it's not necessary that it's going to happen in in Hoku, inland Illa.

00:46:15--> 00:47:05

am Allah Allah darboux illa? And what is it that Allah has decided? What is it that he has commanded? He has commanded that you should not worship anyone except him? Only Allah Yeah, no one but him. Why because He created us so that we worship him and he is He alone is the creator so he alone has the right to be worshipped. And then he tells them that he Cadena will pay him that is the correct religion and notice a dino pay him Dean also means worship and and pay him by him is that which is established that which is correct, Huck, Mr. Clean, authentic? Any This is the correct religion because here we have traditional evidence, right? Because my ancestors, Ibrahim yaku, is

00:47:05--> 00:47:54

healthier. They always worship the love. And we have logical evidence, right? Which is that one God is better than multiple gods. So this is the correct religion, what I can the acoa messy lie on the moon, but most of the people do not know. What do they not know that this is the correct religion that only Allah subhanaw taala should be worshiped. So we see that the use of early Islam any he uses multiple strategies over here, to invite them to Islam? Right? First of all, he assures them that he's not going to be too long. Secondly, he gives them you know, his he establishes his credibility that I'm not just a nobody, right? I have, you know, my background is such that I am

00:47:54--> 00:48:38

credible when it comes to this matter. And then he gives them traditional and logical evidence. And then he finally criticizes their ways. Right? That, you know, think about your religion, what evidence do you have? Think about your ways? What evidence do you have? And unfortunately, one of the first things we do when we talk, when we talk to people about Islam, is that we start We begin by criticizing the religion of people. Right, that we begin with criticism. And when we begin with criticism, people immediately become hostile. They become defensive. You surprise them did not begin with criticism. That's the last thing that he did.

00:48:39--> 00:49:14

And this is it. Right? This is all the Dharma that he did over here. And then he tells them about the interpretation of their dreams. He says yes, or Heba usage, one or two companions of prison, or my two companions in the prison. Hello, coma as for one of you. He doesn't say, you who had this dream, he's ambiguous over here. Why? Because the interpretation, the interpretation of the dream of one of them is good, and on the other one is quite sad. So he doesn't want to,

00:49:15--> 00:49:50

you know, make him feel bad. So he says, As for one of you to face the rocklahoma He will give drink to his master of wine come to his wine. What I'm going to ask for the other for use level, then he will be crucified, meaning you will be killed, but that Google Play the middle seat, and the birds are going to eat from his head. His head is going to be bred for the birds. Hold the Unruh lady feet as the Thea, the matter has been decreed about which you both enquire this the pianos from fatwa is stiff that is to seek a fat one.

00:49:51--> 00:49:52

So

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

he tells them over here that the The matter has been decreed. Yanni this

00:50:00--> 00:50:46

What will happen now? Because remember that until the dream is interpreted it does not have any effect, but once it is interpreted, then it will happen. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the dream is tied to a bird's leg, as long as it is not interpreted. When it is interpreted, it becomes a reality. Okay, meaning just like a bird lands, right it sits. So just like that the dream will now become a reality after it has been interpreted what Allah and usefully said, I'm sad, Linda, the two The one whom alumna unknow, who he knew that indeed he will be mad, you mean whom I will be, will be a free from both of them. Now, look at the word London, London can mean

00:50:46--> 00:51:33

think to assume, but when it's followed by unknown it means to know for sure. So use of it, as Sam said to the person about whom he knew that he was going to be Majin magine one who is saved. So meaning the one who is going to go and serve wine to his master, US apprentice, and I've said to him, that will come near in the Robic mentioned me to your master, meaning when you're free when you're out of here, then tell him that I have been put here unjustly. But what happened for unsaddle shavon. But shaytaan made him forget who the man shaitan made him forget to do what they called a B to mention use of his surname before his master. So what happened as a result for Nabil the

00:51:33--> 00:52:08

decision, so use of readiness and I'm remained in the prison big larceny for several years. And the word builder means somewhere between three and nine or five and nine so use if it said I'm remained in the prison for several more years. Now, something very important we see here use of re s&m was in the prison. And he only if if someone is in the prison, who's going to come and advocate for them, or who's going to come and you know, fight for them so that they are brought out. It's of course going to be their friends or their family.

00:52:09--> 00:53:01

A user friendly Sam's family was not in Egypt, they didn't even know that use of Artesia was in the prison. And the only people that he knew, which was the family of the disease, were the people who put him in the prison in the first place. So who was going to come and advocate for him? Nobody. So we learn a very important lesson over here that you surprise him. He was patient over this trial, he was relying upon Allah subhanaw taala for relief. But along with that, he was doing whatever he could to bring himself out of difficulty. Patience does not mean that you give up the word cool, does not mean that you do nothing. Use have already said I'm believed that he was innocent. He

00:53:01--> 00:53:48

believed that he had been put behind bars as a way to silence that scandal, right. And he knew that no one was going to come for him. So he had to help himself. And this is something very important that we must remember, don't always wait to be rescued by others. You have to do something to rescue yourself to bring yourself out of difficulty. Because the one who tries to change their condition than Allah subhanaw taala also, he helps that person, but the change must come from you. Because a lot of times, you know, when we were suffering in a certain capacity in our lives, we just keep waiting for others to come rescue us. Right? But don't don't wait for that you have to do something

00:53:48--> 00:54:38

yourself. So you suffer so then he did whatever was within his capacity, right to get out of prison. And he told his man that when you are free mentioned me to your master. But what happened shaitan made that man forget. Because why Shay plan is always plotting to harm you to hurt you. To make you forget what is important because straight line is your enemy. So after this use of race and remained in the prison for many years. Now some have interpreted this verse as the che plan made use of forget to remember Allah, meaning instead of asking Allah alone, and depending on him exclusively, use of artists and I'm asked this man to mention him to his master. But this interpretation is it

00:54:38--> 00:54:59

doesn't make much sense because it is first of all based on a narration that is weak. And secondly, we have been taught to adopt means to help ourselves. And then we see that initial plan does not have any control over Allah's profits. So for Ansel shaitana

00:55:00--> 00:55:38

Call up beat this is referring to shaitan making this man forget to mention use of radius center. And this is something quite sad if you think about it, that this man got out and use have already said I'm already told him right? He predicted that. So, it said that you surprise Sam hell helped this man. And this man completely forgot about use of race. And this happens with many people, that as they, as they get to, you know, enjoy worldly benefits, they tend to forget their past, they tend to forget about the people who helped them.

00:55:40--> 00:56:31

Now, one thing we must remember is that when shaitan made this man forget to mention you Sabrina Cena, this happened by the permission of Allah. All right, because like I mentioned earlier, Nothing happens without Allah subhanaw without his permission, his will his decree. So, Allah subhanaw taala let shavon you know make this men forget to mention you suggest as he led shaitaan made use Shar forget to mention the fish tool, sorry, his center. Right, we learn in sort of recap. Why? Because remember that in the delay, you know, if, for example, use of our histogram was mentioned, and then use prednisone and was brought out of prison immediately in this trial would be over very quickly.

00:56:32--> 00:56:42

Right? It wouldn't be as long. So remember that in the longer trial in this delay, there was more patience on the part of use of race.

00:56:43--> 00:57:07

And more patience meant more reward. Okay. Secondly, remember that what Allah subhanaw taala, has decreed for the servant, for his, for his slave is better than what the slave thinks for himself. If you somebody said, I'm gone out now, then what would he do? Where would he go? You know,

00:57:09--> 00:57:21

but you suffer the Assam he got up much later, at the request of the king. And what happened, you suffer he said, I'm immediately reached the top, right from where he was able to help people.

00:57:23--> 00:58:12

And ultimate, remember that immunosuppressant request was presented to the king right now. He would be in a position of asking the king, right, begging for kink. And Allah subhanaw taala his decree was better. It was the king who needed use of reason not to use of race and I'm who needed the king. So this is why we see that the king was shown a dream. And what was that dream in the next time we learn? We'll call him Malik. And the king said that in the other suburb of karate, indeed I have seen meaning in a dream suburb of karate cotton, seven cows, recorded plural of bacala what kind of cows these cows are semen. semen is the plural of semi and so mean is fat or obese with a lot of

00:58:12--> 00:58:18

flesh. So I saw seven fat cows. Yep. coluna

00:58:19--> 00:58:30

and it eats them meaning these fat cows are being eaten up by whoo suburban seven cows, which are a Jeff one which or lean, or Jeff is a poor love

00:58:31--> 00:59:12

of our Jeff. And it means slim or slender. So think about cows that are completely emaciated bones are showing there's no fat whatsoever. They haven't eaten in a very long time. So what's his dream? He sees seven fat cows and seven fin cows and the seven thing cows. What do they do? They eat up the seven fat cows in the same dream The King sees was sobro some boletin and seven spikes. Okay, what are these spikes. cymbala is basically a spike of grain and ear of grain. Think about wheat, how the plant grows that it's basically a stalk and at the top. You have

00:59:14--> 00:59:27

you know a bunch of greens, right? Or a symbol that is like an ear of corn. Okay, so he saw seven of these which are highlighted in green.

00:59:28--> 00:59:37

If they're green, that means that they're fresh. Were ohana and others meaning seven others that are yabbies out that are dry, dry meaning they're not fresh.

00:59:38--> 00:59:59

So he says yeah, Johan Bella, oh, elite Oh assembly, meaning he addresses his men of Tony Fadell Aya told me about my dream in quantum level yet our balloon if you truly interpret dreams, meaning Tell me what my dream means. Now, of course this dream was a very different dream and clearly it's something very meaningful

01:00:00--> 01:00:48

And, first of all, realize that even a non Muslim can have a true dream. And remember that just because a person has a true dream, a meaningful dream, it does not mean that they're very righteous, and that they're upon the truth. A meaningful dream. A true dream is not a sign of a person's religiosity, and a sign of their piety. Okay, anyone can be shown a true dream. Now, in the string, there is a couple of strange things. First of all, cows are eating cows. Right. And then secondly, it's the famished cows that are eating the fat cows, right. And then you see that there are, you know, cows and spikes of grain, which are basically food, agriculture, economy money. And then we

01:00:48--> 01:00:48

see that,

01:00:49--> 01:01:35

you know, there are just as there are seven fed cows, there are seven fresh spikes of green. And there are seven thin cows and there are seven dry spikes of green. And then notice the number seven. Each of the fat cows, the famished cows, the fresh tombola the dried ones. Alright, so, of course, this kind of a dream would leave you wondering that what is happening. So the king was very eager to know what his dream meant. And he was pressing his people that tell me the meaning of my dream. What was their answer? kalu, they said, Allah, this is just a mixture of false dreams. Okay, this is a very interesting word of laws. This is the plural of the word deals. And this is basically a handful

01:01:35--> 01:01:43

of Herbes or plants that are fresh and dry, you know, mixed together. Basically,

01:01:44--> 01:02:07

you know, after it rains, you see grass or different kinds of weeds growing. So if you would, if you were to take a bunch of them, right, what would fit in your fist, you would see that there are different kinds, some are dry, some are fresh. So this is what otherwise is. An alarm alarm is typically used for a false dream or dream that is from shaitan.

01:02:08--> 01:02:55

So the said that this is just a muddle a mixture of, you know, confusion of false dreams. And notice how they combined a lot and right that this is just completely false. It doesn't mean anything. Right? They're completely, this dream is completely unreal. And this woman, Nobita Whelan, Atlanta, br alameen, and we are not at all knowledgeable of the interpretation of dreams. We don't have this knowledge, right? Or they say that we don't know how to interpret false dreams. Because remember, ahem is false dreams, right? So the set, we don't know, the knowledge of dream interpretation, this is not one of our expertise. Or Secondly, we know the interpretation of dreams, but this dream, this

01:02:55--> 01:03:22

is false. Now, why did they say this? They said this as an excuse, because they really did not know they did not have the answer. So they said, basically, don't worry about it. And you know what, we made this mistake also when people ask us questions, right? If we don't know the answer, we say, don't think too much. Or this question doesn't make sense. And this is a very any wrong response. If you don't have the answer.

01:03:23--> 01:04:07

Don't belittle the questions of people. If you don't know the answer, don't undermine their their questions, tell them I don't know. Right? or telling them that, you know, perhaps someone else can give you the answer, but don't start making them feel as if they're dumb. Right, that that their question was a bad question. Now what happened we'll call a lady in a German humor. Now someone remembered something, we'll call her and he said, Oh, Allah, the new German humor, the one who was freed from them to meeting the two men who were in the prison with use of re center. So the guy who was saved and who ended up you know, going to the king and serving him why he remembered what Dakota

01:04:07--> 01:04:19

bar the mountain and he remembered after a long time, what did he say I'm not gonna be completed really, I will tell you the interpretation of this dream for our cilona for our ceylonese so you all send me

01:04:21--> 01:04:59

now, first of all, look at the word oma tin. This is very interesting. He remembered use of a sedan after an oma oma means a period of time, okay? Just as oma means a group of people jamara a group of people, then it also means a group of the many years meaning a number of years, a long time. Okay? And the word oma. It's also been recited as ima and ima means blessing NEMA. So after this guy had been having, you know, a very good time.

01:05:00--> 01:05:03

Now finally he remembered use of race.

01:05:04--> 01:05:46

And even now, he does not mention the name of use of race. And he just says, send me I will tell you, right, as if Now again, he wants to use this opportunity to get closer to the king. And there are so many people who are like this, that they, you know, take advantage of others, they benefit from others, they never give credit. And they're only concerned about their own progress, their own personal progress, but such people never succeed. So what happened, that he said, I don't want to be a computer winning for all said, once you send me, meaning send me either to the king, or send me to the prison so that I can find out the interpretation. So this man, he comes to the prison, and he

01:05:46--> 01:06:31

talks to us of writing center, and he says use of or use of au acidic or men of truth. Notice how he begins with praising use of race and and because he wants a favor, right? And he knows that it's very selfish of him to now come after such a long time. And remember, you serve and ask him for another favor. So he begins by praising use of Ronnie center. He says a USA deep But out of all the things that he could describe us already sit down with. He says Sadiq and Sadiq, remember is someone who is very, very truthful Cathedral says that he was sick, right? Someone whose truthfulness is revealed it is known it is experienced by others. And why does he call him so deep now? Because the

01:06:31--> 01:07:09

interpretation that use of race and I'm gave him came true. Right. So he asks him that. Are you a civic, Athena? You give us fatwa, meaning you tell us the meaning of a dream, which dream? He mentioned the dream exactly as the King had narrated it. He says the suburb of Colorado TNC man in yet coluna southern region iPhone was severely subletting hobbling were over a year Besides, he mentioned the dream. And he says, tell me what it means Laura Lee, oh, dear Elon now so that I can return to the people I can go back, let alone so that they aren't alone. They don't tell me the interpretations that I can go and tell them.

01:07:11--> 01:07:51

Notice something here. The man does not tell you somebody Salaam about whose dream it was. He says if Tina, you tell us, right, we need to know about what this dream means. He doesn't say the king had the dream. Alright, again, we can see how selfish this man was. So we see that really, it's amazing how useful Islam is a Merson no matter where he goes, right no matter what situation he's in. And there are people who either abuse him or they take advantage of him. But, you know, eventually we see at the end, those who tried to harm him could not really harm him.

01:07:52--> 01:08:08

And this is the reality of givers of people who are generous. It seems as though they're being used and abused by people. But in the long run, it is the generous it is the givers who are successful

01:08:09--> 01:08:59

so you suffer histograms credibility have been established right? So this man narrative the the dream and use of race and I'm looking at his response he is so amazing. Allah He says this is Aruna sobra senior the other you are going to plant meaning cultivate for seven years consecutively amazing use of our s&m does not complain Where were you? Right? He does not set a precondition that I will only tell you the interpretation when you tell me what's in it for me use the time is not bitter, right? This is sub This is patience. Okay, this is the local This is a lesson because use of or Islam did not expect from people right. So why would he be disappointed? So he gives him the

01:08:59--> 01:09:51

interpretation. He says does it our owner you are going to cultivate this is from Zara Zara is too So, you know, seeds and then cultivate, harvest etc. Does it our owner Subbu Rossini, you will do that for seven years, how the oven consecutively that basically means what what is done habitually as habit as routine. So, you will cultivate for seven years as per routine. And that can also mean without interruption, meaning consecutively from our house or dome. Then wherever you harvest house to house or dahlias route, whatever you harvest meaning of crop, then what you do is for the whoohoo then you leave the grain where fee some bully in its spikes, meaning do not take the kernels and

01:09:52--> 01:09:59

leave them in the spikes in noccalula methaqualone except a little of which you eat meaning all

01:10:00--> 01:10:44

only take out the kernels which are actually going to eat the rest of the grain. Leave it in the shields, why in order to store them and preserve them properly, because if you take them out, they will not stay fresh, and they can be eaten by, you know, bugs. So in the kuleana methaqualone. So my team member the Valley has several Ronchi that then there will come after that meeting after the seven years which are going to be as usual. After that they're going to come cember and she that seven years which are going to be she dad, very difficult, Florida should eat. Meaning these are going to be years of famine, where there is going to be a shortage of food supplies, there is going

01:10:44--> 01:11:39

to be difficulty and in this time, yet cooler, they will eat maca dumped on Laguna, what you saved for them, what you deposit it for them, meaning in the prior seven years in la colina minmatar so known except for a little which you will store meaning again, in those seven years of hardship don't eat everything that you had stored, store some more why for future plantation. Amazing. He gives the interpretation of the dream. The seven fat cows represent the seven good years. And the seven lean cows represent the seven years of drought or famine. And then the seven lean cows eat the fat ones because the seven years of famine will consume the food they've stored in the seven years of plenty.

01:11:40--> 01:11:58

And then the seven and then the grain the sunblock that the king saw. You will have fresh green for seven years the whole seven green. And then for the next seven you will consume the dried harvest that you that you collected and you've saved

01:11:59--> 01:12:04

the use of race around he didn't just give the interpretation he also gave them

01:12:05--> 01:12:12

any a solution. Right. And this was his ASN This was his hikma his hokum, his wisdom

01:12:13--> 01:12:21

that that he told them what was what they were supposed to do for the next 14 years to save their economy

01:12:22--> 01:13:06

that the harvest of seven years was supposed to last them 14 years. Right. And he also told them to store some for future plantation. So it's not about how much how many resources you have at your disposal. But how well you manage them how well you use them. You surprised them didn't stop here he went further. He said Thoma Team embar. The valley common then there will come after that a year, what kind of year fee you awfulness in which the people will be given rain you'll also is from as I hit in late as rain of the word ultimate means relief, because it is rain that falls after desperate need. So there will come a year in which there will be a lot of rain with VR soon and in which

01:13:07--> 01:13:18

people will press your as soon as possible to press meaning there will be so much fruit, so much grain, that people will be able to press them to make the juice, oil, milk, etc.

01:13:19--> 01:13:26

So basically, he's telling them that in the 15th year, there will be abundant rain. So he gives them good news at the end.

01:13:27--> 01:14:10

Now, there's a question, Where did you survive this and get this fruit? Because this was not mentioned in the dream? Right? It was only the cows seven, seven, the green seven, seven. I mean, that's it. So how would you know that after the 14 years there will be a year in which there will be relief? Because he understood from the dream that the first seven will be easy. The next seven will be hard. And then that means that after those seven hard years, the eighth is going to be easy again. Right? The the following year will not be hard, meaning there will be an end to the difficulty. So the cows will be fat again, right the grain will be fresh again.

01:14:11--> 01:14:59

So use of artisanal in he his judgment, his wisdom, his knowledge is is it's fascinating. Right? So what happened when the king was told about the interpretation? We'll call him Maluku, Tony be the king said Bring him to me. him bring this man to me. Why is he in jail? Bring him to me for the merger. Ahora Sol. So when the envoy of the king came to use of early Sudan to bring him out of the prison, what did you surprise that I'm doing? He said, finally I'm out let's run out the doors. No, Carla, he said erode your ego out of be go back to your master. Go back to your king. First a lot and ask him Marbella nisswa. What is the case of the women allottee Katana idea who know who cut

01:14:59--> 01:14:59

their hair

01:15:00--> 01:15:47

What is their case? Because in the lobby BK the dinar lien? Indeed my lord is knowing of their conspiracy. My lord knows what conspiracy they did. And Rob over here can refer to any his previous master or it can refer to the he's referring to Allah subhanaw taala that Allah knows about what these women did, how we see that the king was deeply impressed. He was fascinated and he felt in great need of the knowledge and expertise of use of rice that I'm so he said, Bring him but use early Salaam did not rush out of the prison. Why? Because he wanted to make sure that his innocence was known, even though he knew he was innocent near Allah. But for him to be able to work with with

01:15:47--> 01:15:59

people, and to be trusted by them, he needed to have a clear record. Because remember, on the one hand, yes, our matter is with Allah. And on the other hand, it is also with people, and both need to be good.

01:16:00--> 01:16:31

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually said about this, that if I stayed in prison, as long as you substained and then the messenger came to me, I would respond to his call, meaning I would have gone out immediately. But look at the patience of use of race. And I'm and this is also part of that we don't have these to understand the true meaning of events to be farsighted, to not be impulsive to not be hasty. Right? So he said, Ask your master that ma balou. What is the case of

01:16:33--> 01:16:34

what is the case of

01:16:35--> 01:16:53

ban is a condition for which one cares? Okay. So basically, what he's saying is Please investigate the case of the women who got their hands. And this was something major, so many women cut their hands What happened? Right? Why did this happen? Please investigate that. Now he doesn't directly say,

01:16:55--> 01:17:34

you know, that the wife of Aziz tried to seduce me, she set up this whole thing and, you know, she, she tried to pressure me and then to silence me, they put me in prison. He doesn't say anything like that. Why? And he doesn't even mention the wife of the disease. Why, in order to preserve the dignity of the disease, because he did not forget the favor of their disease? Yes, what the disease did was wrong, right? That he put us liberalism in prison just to save his own image. But at the same time, you're surprised as I remembered his accent. So he does not bad mouth him. Right?

01:17:35--> 01:17:38

And he says, My Lord knows about what these women did.

01:17:40--> 01:17:48

So what happened? Now the king investigated this issue. And he asked these women,

01:17:49--> 01:18:26

kala, he said Mahathir will corner. What was your condition? What was happening? idre tuna use of our nuptse when you all sought to seduce use of isrm. What happened? What was going on? Who was at fault? Did you do something wrong? Or did he do something wrong? Oh, no. They said all the women said How shall Illa perfect is Allah, God forbid ma Lim narrowly human suit, we do not know about him any evil at all, meaning Yusuf is not guilty at all. He is innocent. He didn't do anything wrong.

01:18:27--> 01:18:39

Now, this is amazing. You see the king wanted use of Ernie said he wanted to benefit from use of medicine. And this is why he made special accommodations for us for a reason.

01:18:40--> 01:18:44

When a person has expertise, then people are willing to accommodate for them.

01:18:45--> 01:19:19

A lot of times what happens is that we keep blaming people, they don't see me, they don't value me. They don't want me, right. And then we start blaming different things. It's because I'm a Muslim. It's because I wear hijab, it's because I wear in a club, it's because of this, it's because of that. And yes, there are these this is true, there are people who will be biased towards you just because of your appearance. But you know what, it's also about the benefit you bring people, the Coppelia that you have the the you know the strengths that you have

01:19:20--> 01:19:59

any if you have something of quality to offer, people will come after you. Right they will come after you. So instead of blaming people start working on developing yourself improving yourself. So what happened the king he asked the women not how to corner? Well, what was your condition and the word called wicked can refer to any an important matter, which is a subject of discourse because it's so important, or it can also mean the cause of an event. Okay, so what was your condition? What was happening? Why did this

01:20:00--> 01:20:00

happen

01:20:01--> 01:20:11

and they said use of is completely innocent. So, now, quality monitor Aziz, the wife of the disease spoke.

01:20:12--> 01:20:35

Now she spoke even though use of medicine and did not mention her, right? Because he he had respect for the Rosie's. But she spoke herself She said, I earn a house hustle help. Now the truth has become evident. This word house hustle is very interesting house hustle means two things it means to settle

01:20:37--> 01:21:25

when something becomes firmly settled or steady, basically, how fossa is used for a camel, when a camel becomes firm on his knees, in order to rise in order to get up. If you ever seen a camel getting up, you will notice that it doesn't get up immediately. Right? It goes back and forth. And it you know, it settles firmly on its knees, and then it gets up. So suddenly, this is his hustle. So now the truth has settled. Okay, and secondly has hustled ultimates to come out. Right? Meaning when something becomes distinct, after having been concealed. So she said, Now the truth has become evident.

01:21:27--> 01:22:16

Even though for all of these years, they try to hide the truth, the truth of what of the innocence of use of Raisa by putting him in prison. She says, an Allah to Horan nuptse I am the one who tried to seduce him. What inner willamina saw the clean and indeed he is of the truthful, amazing use of race and it was called the Merson. He is called Sadiq and now he is called sadhak. He is known as someone who is truthful, not dishonest. And then there luckily Allah and Neelam Han who believe, that is, so that he knows being there, Aziz will know that I did not betray you in the unseen meaning in his absence. I actually did not do anything wrong. What anila layer decadal hardening and

01:22:16--> 01:22:23

that Allah does not guide the plan of the betrayers, meaning those who do Fianna Allah does not guide them, they can never be successful.

01:22:24--> 01:22:25

So

01:22:27--> 01:22:42

So basically, use of rd Sam is the one who said that. So there's two ways of looking at this IO. One is that use of Bredesen I was the one who said this, that I wanted this clarification so that there are these knows that I did not betray him.

01:22:43--> 01:23:31

Why did he? Why is it that he wanted people to know that he did not betray, he did not betray his master. Because if you suffer as Sam had been dishonest with his master, then that means that he could be dishonest with anybody. That means that he he was not reliable. Remember that the prophets of Allah have two very important characteristics, a slip will Amana truthfulness and trustworthiness. His truth had been established, right? How that when he gave the interpretation, it came true. He was called Sadiq, but now his Amana his trustworthiness also had to be established. So this is why he wanted to make sure that his innocence was known.

01:23:33--> 01:24:16

So he says when that will barely enough see. And then he says I do not acquit myself meaning of blame. I don't I don't say that I am completely perfect. In the Nef, Salah, a monotone resume because indeed the soul is a persistent in joiner of evil Amala extreme enjoying our meaning one, one who commands again and again and again persistently. The soul constantly urges one to commit evil in their motto him or be except that except for what my lord is merciful to what does this mean man can mean two things it can either mean when meaning a person is only safe when Allah has mercy on them. And secondly, it can mean

01:24:17--> 01:24:52

who meaning the person who is saved from the evil of the soul is the one who Allah subhanaw taala has been merciful to him Nabila. fudo Rahim indeed my lord is Forgiving and Merciful. So these words are the words of use of race. Right? So it's very obvious now his innocence is declared. Yet he says, I don't claim to be perfect. Right? He says that I don't, you know, if I'm innocent, it is only by Allah's mercy on me. So he wants to make sure that he's not, you know, making anybody feel bad.

01:24:53--> 01:24:59

Now, there are other olema who say that this was actually the woman's statement, meaning the wife of the disease. She is

01:25:00--> 01:25:48

The one who said this, okay? That I don't claim to be innocent, I am guilty, because the knifes does prompt one to do evil and I indeed fell prey to my desires. However, I did not ultimately commit the sin. So I did not actually betray my husband. So basically she confesses, and she gives her excuse. And this is also something that is truly remarkable because for for a person to confess, to admit their guilt, right? This is also great. So, this statement that in the NASA are modeled and be sued, this is very important. The soul always prompt urges to do evil. Right? Which is why fighting the knifes is one of the most difficult things to do. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that

01:25:48--> 01:26:37

the best of believers in Islam is the one from whose tongue and hands others are safe. And the best jihad is on the one who's tribes against himself for the sake of Allah. Who is the strong person, not the one who can win a fight, but the one who can control his anger? Right? So in the masala a monotone resort, and no one is safe except the person will Allah is merciful to this is why we should never feel proud. You know what, I'm so righteous. I'm so strong No, ask Allah subhanaw taala for mercy. We'll call him Malik and the king said it dooney be Bring him to me the king repeats bring this man to me. But now he says as the Hello spooling up see, I will appoint him exclusively

01:26:37--> 01:27:06

for myself is thoughtless, basically means to extract butter from milk. Okay. And when you do that the milk becomes completely clear. So it's tough lesson is when a person chooses someone exclusively for themselves, okay, meaning I want him to work only for me to be with me and nothing else. I want him as my personal advisor as my personal assistant. Think about it.

01:27:07--> 01:27:57

If you surprise Sam came the first time the king called him. Right? Then what would happen? Okay, nice, right? But now the king says it Tony be a selfless Holy nuptse I want him for myself. So if you saw this meme came out the first time you would not have gotten this right. What happened then fella Mark Aloma who then when the king spoke to use of ice, because up until now the king had only heard of use of precedent, right? But now when he met him and spoke to him, he was even more impressed. He was even more confident in use of realism. So he said in the kaleo Mela de Namur keynote. I mean, indeed you are from today onwards. You are with us. McKean and Ameen who is McKean

01:27:57--> 01:27:59

McKean is someone who is established,

01:28:00--> 01:28:20

you know empowered, because makhana is to give authority to someone to empower them. So you are empowered. And McCann also means to give a place to someone to settle. So you are established, Amina and you are fully trusted, meaning we will trust you, we will believe you. So you are good now

01:28:21--> 01:29:08

Karla use of our his son and he said he, Jeremy are the huzar in an appointment over the store houses of the land. Look at this, the king trusts use of it, Sam and he wants use of artisan for himself, but use it on his own and chooses something else. He says No, I'd rather be out there working doing the real work. This is a great privilege to be with you. However, I would like to go and help people how that you appoint me over the storehouses of the land has that in his the porn of his and in his era is a place where something is preserved. So for example, he's Anna to cuto is a library because the library has books in it or even a bookcase because you keep books safe in it. So

01:29:08--> 01:29:30

appoint me over the storehouses of the land meaning where you know food and grain and harvest etc is collected, stored, managed, appoint me over that. Because in me Hatfield and Arlene, indeed I am Hatfield, Riley in her field, I'm able to diligently guard, and I'm really I am knowing I have knowledge of this.

01:29:31--> 01:29:59

So use of time again, it's not bragging over here. He is mentioning his strengths, so that the king would trust Him, and the king would give him this work, which means that if you're applying for a job, for example, right, it's perfectly fine to mention what your accomplishments are, what your strengths are, but a person must be truthful in doing that. Now why does he say that I am happy and happy have the ability to go

01:30:00--> 01:30:49

Right meaning I have a manner I have the integrity right. And I have a I have knowledge of this matter, because if you think about it, the entire kingdom was going to face a, you know, a serious matter there was going to be the next 15 years were very, very important and they are they have to be managed very carefully. So he wanted to help out. So he offered his services and what happened the king agreed. Alice Panthera says worker then become a kennel user and thus we established use of fill in the land. Amazing. Allah subhanaw taala established use of medicine through this way cut their liquor through which way by sending him to prison by giving him the knowledge of the

01:30:49--> 01:31:37

interpretation of dreams by letting those two men meet use of racism by letting Shay plan for allow, you know, make that men forget to mention you surprised by making the king have the dream Subhan Allah, this is how use of early Salaam was established, he was empowered in the land of Egypt, how you tabo what will mean her Hazel your shot, he could settle there, wherever that he wanted. It's about what always to settle, to take a place as residents. So use of our listener could now live wherever that he wanted, anywhere. What was the state previously he was a slave in the house of the Aziz, he was an inmate in the prison of Egypt. And now he had so much freedom and so much power. No

01:31:37--> 01:32:20

slave will be rushed metronome inertia, this is beautiful. Allah says we bestow our mercy on whomever we will. This was purely Allah subhanaw taala has mercy on use of early Center. This was not because of the power of use of RNA center. Allah is the one who gave you some already some knowledge who gave you some really some wisdom who gave you some reason I'm Buddha Han. Right so that use of radius and I'm stayed away from the sin that the woman was inviting her to inviting him to Allah is the one who turned away the plot of the women for Sunnah foreign who Qaeda one, right? Allah is the one who made the king have that dream. No slave will be like Medina, Manisha. Well, I

01:32:20--> 01:32:25

know they are a general mercenary, and we do not allow it to be lost the reward of those who do good.

01:32:27--> 01:33:18

The person who does Excel, Allah does not let their effort go waste. Allah subhanaw taala to give them reward in this life, and also in the next life. Amazing. Think about this up until now, what is use of RSM doing, giving, giving, giving, and what are people doing, taking advantage of use of race and I'm constantly abusing him. Right? Not caring about him, but the use of his salon. He was a Morrison in the face of hardship. So what happened? Allah subhanaw taala did not let this sn go waste. Allah subhanaw taala gave him reward in this life. And he says what a jewel of hiraki hide and surely the reward of the Hereafter is better, better than what better than the reward which is

01:33:18--> 01:34:08

given in this world. So panela if this is the reward that you suffer is that I've got in this world, that now he had so much power and so much freedom, so much authority, right, that he's loved by people, he is believed by them, people want him, they like him. So pauwela then what is the reward in the hereafter? It is much better. But that reward is not for everybody. Who is it for? It is Cairo. lilina Manu, the reward of the Hereafter is best for those who believe, who do not give up believing in Allah. They believe because this is what happens when a person goes through trial. Sometimes their faith even is shaken. You suffer a sinner. He believed in Allah that my love is

01:34:08--> 01:34:55

there. My love is watching me. My ROM has been good to me. My rub knows what happened. What can we at the core and they have been fearing of Allah. They have been adopting taqwa. What was it called the use of artists and I'm observed. Think about it. He was the only Muslim all around him. People were committing ship. They were of a different religion. He did not become like them. He stayed away from Schick. Right. He was invited to to sin, not once, but repeatedly. But what did he do? He stayed away. That was his taqwa. He feared Allah, no matter where he was in the house of the king, when the doors sorry, in the house of the Aziz when the doors were locked, right in the face of

01:34:55--> 01:34:59

social pressure, even in the prison right. He

01:35:00--> 01:35:27

feared Allah subhanaw taala. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala rewarded him in dunya. And the reward in the hereafter will be even better. So this is beautiful, we see how Allah Subhana thought his plan works out in the favor of the believer. Yes, the all that user is I went through was indeed difficult. It wasn't deep, painful. But in reality, it brought so much goodness to us.

01:35:28--> 01:36:10

And we see how all of those years of use of medicine and spent in slavery, and then in the prison, it's all paying off. Right? So good days are coming, have faith and have trust in Allah subhanaw taala. Remember that there are two kinds of provision that Allah subhanaw taala gives his servants, okay. The first type of provision that Allah gives a servants is that which he has already fixed for them. So that provision will find the servant just like death with meaning the risk that you're going to eat in this life, the money that you're going to enjoy the food that you will eat, the places that you will go, the love that you will receive, the relationships that you will enjoy, all

01:36:10--> 01:36:58

of that is already determined, and it will find you it will come to you sooner or later, just like death will, meaning you're not going to miss it. It's certainly going to reach you. But the other kind of provision is that which is in the Hereafter, which Allah subhanaw taala has promised. If you have Eman, you have Southern you have tequila. And for that you must work. What happens with us is that we focus so much on what is now that we forget about what has been promised in the future. suburb and taqwa and Eman. They allow you to focus not just on the present, but on the future. May Allah subhanaw taala give us autofeed I apologize for taking extra time. But at hamdulillah we

01:36:58--> 01:37:03

managed to complete this section of the story. And now inshallah in the next section we will see how

01:37:04--> 01:37:15

the brothers abuse of rice and how they came to him. So particle loving will be handed I should have La ilaha illa Anta a stone Furukawa Tobu la assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah. He
