Yusuf 19-35 Word Analysis and Tafsir 22
So Allah subhanaw taala says that what should the who, and when he reached his maturity, meaning when use of medicine and he reached a should, I should is from the direction that that and it's from the word Shetty. And basically it is the age when a person's physical and mental abilities, they reach their perfection, their height.
So just imagine a person is physically strong. And at the same time he is mentally very strong.
In his abilities, he is very strong. And it is said that this is the age between 30 and 14.
And if you look at it generally at this time, people have developed their careers, at least by this point. Many people they have their family, many people, they're very strong at this age as well. So, while under Obama should the who attina who we gave him hoechlin judgment and also our admin, also knowledge we gave her come over here has been understood in several ways. Some have understood this as wisdom. Others have understood this as the ability to make the right decision, the ability to make correct decisions, the decision power, being decisive, and being able to make correct decisions, and has also been understood as Prophethood. So we gave him her wisdom, decision power,
as well as Prophethood. We're in mud and also knowledge. What does knowledge mean over here, understanding of the religion, as well as knowledge of the things that work around him. What are their liquor and likewise, matches in Marcin, we recommend those people who do ersan how his use of RSM described over here
as a Moxon as one who does.
What do we learn from this?
First of all, we learned about the great gift of a lost provider, to the person who is given knowledge and wisdom together.
Because Allah subhanaw taala says that he was given cocoa as well as
wisdom and knowledge. Many times people have knowledge.
If you ask them about the definitions, they know them. If you ask them about grammar, they know that they have knowledge. But if you ask them, How to apply it, how to relate it with daily life, they don't know how to do that. They have no idea. They cannot apply it. Very good in theory, but very bad in practical life.
On the other hand, there are some people who are very good when it comes to wisdom, but they don't have knowledge.
For example, when they express themselves, they can express very eloquently. When you ask them, for example, they can come up with many, many examples. But they do not have knowledge. We see these extremes, very, very common today.
Either people have a lot of knowledge, and they don't have wisdom, or they have wisdom in the sense of how to apply things but they don't know what to apply. They don't know what to apply, they don't know what to do.
But the fact that use of Arsenal was given to him as well as wisdom as well as knowledge. This was a huge blessing of a loss of Hunter. Because when a person knows what to do, and he knows how to do only then we can be more effective. Only then he can be more effective. Then we also learn that when a person accepts the difficulty that comes his way, when a person becomes patient, then Allah subhanaw taala bestows upon him great treasures.
If you look at it, use of it sometimes described as a Martian over here. How was he morson because he was patient, because he accepted the difficulty that came his way.
In the previous ayah, we learned he was bought as a slave. And Allah subhanaw taala gave him knowledge and hokum. But if he cried every single day, if he rebelled, if he became rebellious, if he became extremely disobedient, if he became vengeful, then would it lead him to gaining knowledge and experience? No. You can only gain benefit when you accept the situation. So when a person accepts the difficulty that comes his way, he is patient with it, then Allah gives great treasures. So who is worse than that? A person who does not complain
when he's going through difficulties, even when his own brothers throw him into a wall. And over here, we need to check ourselves that if this happened to us, what would we do?
Just imagine your own brothers and sisters. They throw you into a well
and somebody picks you up and sell to you as a slave. The money does not go to you. The money goes to someone else. Just imagine if something like this happens to you. How would you feel
Would you forget about it? Would you overcome it?
Generally what happens when people go through this, they become extremely vengeful, extremely furious, very moody, on every little thing. They try to show anger to people. They try to show themselves, but user friendly, Sam seems to be very accepting. And because of that loss of Pandora gave him a huge gift of knowledge, as well as wisdom.
We will listen to the recitation of these
walk all the stuff oh,
creamy, must one wash.
So what did you learn?
I was just thinking, important lesson for us, as mothers or mothers to be is that often like we protect our children so much. And still we expect them to accelerate? Like mothers are like, you know, why don't you know how to cook this. And I often tell my mother, if you don't get out of the kitchen, and let me do it, how will I learn. So I mean, you know, let them make their mistakes and inshallah like, wisdom, they will learn eventually. So it's important.
Because in the shelter of his house, in the protection of his father, he could not have gained all that knowledge or that experience, when he came out of there, and to Egypt, in the house of the finance minister, then he got to meet so many people, he saw the finance minister working, managing finances of the entire country. And through that, he learned much more. So only when you expose your children to different things, then they learn. But sometimes it becomes so protective about our children, that we don't want them to do anything.
I have, for example, those of you who have come and are staying in the boarding in the hospital. If you think of it, you could not have gained this experience of learning from different people living to deal with different people, and coming in interacting with so many different people. If you were staying at home, you could not have been this experience.
So only when you leave the comfort of your house, the shelter of your family, then you get this experience.
Also, one more thing I was thinking, this thought came to my mind, that if you look at it, use of our his son, and he was with his father, and his father was a prophet of Allah. And he was very young when he was taken out of there. And he was based were in Egypt and the people of Egypt were not Muslim.
They were not Muslim. What does this teach us? That it is our obligation that we must teach our children, the religion at the youngest age possible from the very beginning? Don't wait till later. Because you don't know what might happen. You really don't know. Did you know that the sun would be taken away from him? Did you know that he would be taken out of his house? No. But his father taught him in a very young age. We don't know what might happen in the future. We could go away our children could be taken away from us. We don't know what holds in the future. So it's our obligation that we must teach our children at a very young age. Teach them how to recite the Quran. Teach
And what their plan is, teach them about Allah subhanaw taala, about the prophets of Allah Hanson, because we don't know how much time we have.
I was sent an article by a friend the other day, and it was really nice relating to difficulties. And it was basically a mother who's one year old son wanted to shut the door. So she said, Go ahead. But all of a sudden, she noticed that if he does shut it, his head will be slammed because he's too little, right? So she basically moved him away and shut the door. And he started crying hysterically. He's like, basically saying, Why didn't you let me do it's such a small act, I won't do it, you know, kids. So then it occurred to her that this is us. Basically, we want to do something in life policy. Pilot doesn't allow us but we cry hysterically. Why didn't it happen? Why
didn't happen? Well, I knew that some harm may have come in the future. So I saved
everything that happens in life, there is a wisdom behind it. It's not a coincidence, there's a reason behind it. And any difficulty that comes a person's way, even there is a great lesson to be learned. So it's about accepting the difficulties.
I was thinking of like when he was telling his wife to take care of you. And just showing that small act of kindness is, it goes a long way later on, you wouldn't see a now but later on that kindness, which like go farther than it actually is. And then like one story that always comes to my head is like, about this man who's always happy us every time everyone fine in his workplace, he was extremely happy. So when they his boss called him to office and asked him, Why are you always happy? He said, because of a Muslim, to the boss asked him, Well, if I become Muslim, would I be as happy as you are? And then he said no, to the boss's surprise, like, Okay, so let's make you happy. And
he's like, Well, you'd be actually more happier than me because you become a new Muslim, all your sins will be removed, and that that caused the boss to become Muslim. So those small acts of kindness, those small acts like being happy, and all those stuffs and not overlooking, like, overlooking difficulties that could cause someone else to overlook their own difficulties in excel in themselves. Now, just imagine if user friendly Sam was a young boy, he was angry and upset and depressed all the time. How would his master treat him? How would he look at him? And how would he think of him? And how would we consider him? Just imagine, generally, if something like this
happened to children, if they're not allowed to go somewhere, if somebody treats them with injustice, they become so furious, so Moody, they show anger towards everyone. If somebody asks them something, they snap at them, they yell at them, they don't want to do anything. But user visit me seems to be so good in his behavior, that the first thing the Master says, treat him well. And he tells his wife treat him well.
I was just thinking about how it used to sort of had to leave his home in order to learn this knowledge, just thinking about how even it's not just what your family is, and things like that, like, it's not just that he was protected by his father. And that that was protected, preventing him from learning. But also, your culture as a whole has a great impact on how you learn. And if you look at different cultures around the world, there's different weaknesses and strengths for each culture. Some cultures are they have a really good work ethic and other cultures, maybe they have a really good way of respecting authority and other cultures have weaknesses in those same areas. If
you're living in a certain culture, and everybody has the same strengths and weaknesses in those aspects, then you won't know what your weaknesses are. So when you get out, then you'll be able to find out. Like, for example, in America, I think we have very bad with our guests. Whereas like in China, for example, China or Japan or things they don't have.
Exactly, exactly. Very true. But when we're just at home with the people who are like us, we remain in our comfort zone, and we don't get to excel. But when we get exposed to different people, different cultures, then we learn many new things, many new things. But if we just take that as something that's so unfair, we've been taken out to our people, how to our house, our home country, like for example, some people when they come to a different country, they don't get over it all the time, they will be talking about what happens back home, what happens back home all the time. And why did you come back?
Why did you come there. So once you're here, accept the situation and see what you can do, how you can benefit. And only when you get over that situation, then you can make yourself productive.
Lesson or recognize everyone's potential. I had to work at a psychiatric hospital once and the doctors would always say like, talk to the patients, not just about the testing that they have to do with us, but just talk to them just like that. And the patient with schizophrenia or psychosis or something PDM your whole history lesson on some things I never even knew existed. So even a patient with a mental health illness can teach you something. So just imagine the rest of us who are
there's all this stuff.
To learn from people that we come across, always just ask someone what they do. And maybe you can ask them a question that could really benefit you. The answer could really benefit.
Sometimes we don't pay attention to people and later on when we find out who they are,
then we feel so bad.
I was just thinking about how sometimes some people, they're facing different challenges of life, and they believe that there is no God for us, we are living a life for loser. And actually, we just forget that, in the monasteries for that with every author, there is a user, this is a key hidden inside and out of our anxiety, stress, complaints, depression, you can find it we can see that it's there. And we just do that opportunity, but also another has given us a big lesson that you have to move on just I was relating, for example, for a student if a teacher find the potentials name, and use them one paper at one time and once he know Yes, he can able to do all that He gives him more
difficult questions, even more difficult questions. So similar if you are living a life loser or you are facing different challenges, maybe Allah subhanaw taala knows that yes, you are capable that's why he's just giving you an opportunity to know yourself better and raise your levels engine as well.
You know, when you said in the model,
you cannot learn something except with difficulty and what the difficulty comes is but what do we want? These we want to numeral useful, useful ways in reality it is in Amman.
Islam Aleikum, specially for us in Canada, Allah subhanaw taala rotters for real good reason to learn, make dava and make ourselves useful because we will be tested twice in our back home. We had comfortable but here we are struggling with the better. no family, no friends at times. And also when we come here. Oh my goodness. It's such a tough course. What are we going to do in all these harsh teachers? Well, there is a lot of learning to do. And Alhamdulillah he brought us here for a purpose. He brought us under this Ruffalo purpose and May Allah bless you
