Yusuf 19-35 Word Analysis and Tafsir 23-24
Are we live Michigan?
I number 23.
What all that will let you who are Phoebe at her NFC he
and she in whose house he was sought to seduce him,
we see that life is full of challenges.
It's one of tests, one test after the other. One challenge after the other. We see that use of Edison when he was brought out of the well, he was taken out of the world brought to the house of the Aziz of Egypt, as a slave. But when the, as he said, treat him well, what do we think that hamdulillah problems have been solved? It's a new beginning, a good beginning. But what seems to be a very good beginning, is actually what a test. And if you look at it, the previous problem seem to be over the problem of slavery, of being shunned by his brothers have been treated unjustly by his brothers, we look at that as a happy ending.
But from that happy ending, begins a very obese start. And what is that?
Another very difficult test? And what is that, that the woman whose house he was living in? Meaning, the wife of the disease, she tried to seduce him.
We learned in the previous ayah, that use of our this lamb stayed over there, until he reached his full manhood, what am a believer I should do, and the age of assured is between 30 and 40. So when he reached that age, when he was a man, when he had become an adult, then this woman tried to seduce him. The word raw data is from the real fetters of our well that from the word of other Yoruba, which literally means to go and come back to keep coming and going repeatedly, Elijah, whether have to go and come back again and again.
So from this, the word is used for walking about coming and going in search of something.
Just imagine you're looking for something, you've lost your bag, you can't find it in the house, what are you going to do go from the room, to the closet, to the living room, to the kitchen, right upstairs, downstairs, one room, the other room, the car, maybe back in the house, because you're looking for something that has been lost. And sometimes you keep going and coming to the place, many, many times repeated. So it is to come and go in search of something repeatedly. But in particular, in a very gentle and soft men.
Generally what happens when we're looking for something we become very hasty, right? And we rush back and forth running, yelling, screaming, Where is it? Where is that bumping into things, but this is to go and come back very gently, in a very soft manner. So in other words, very seductive.
very seductive. It is said railway crusade meaning to walk gently and slowly to travel very slowly, at a very slow pace.
And primarily this word is used for going about in search of something. But sometimes it is also used for going about without any purpose. Without any purpose without any goal. Any. I, for example, sometimes you go to the mall, and you see people who are just walking, just walking from one aisle to the other, from one floor to the other, from one store to the other. Are they really buying something? No.
Sometimes they're not even carrying a purse. They're not even carrying a bag, they're walking alone, or perhaps with another person. They're not there to buy anything. They're just window shopping.
They're not searching for anything. They're just going back and forth.
Similarly, sometimes if there's a conference, and there's a bazaar,
there are people who are just hanging out in the conference, and what are they doing? going from one part of the bazaar to the other? They're not attending any of the lectures. What are they doing instead of
just walking about in numbers are? This is what rather you do is to walk about with a purpose or aimlessly but slowly, why slowly?
Why slowly because there's no urgency. You don't have a lecture to attend. You don't have to go home.
You don't have a limited time over there. You have a lot of time. You can do whatever you want.
And the word that we see over here is raw weather or weather. It's not a word. What is it wrong? What's wrong with that too? And this word, it conveys two meanings to us.
First of all, it shows mubadala
excessiveness inroad excessiveness incoming and going trying to seduce someone seductively walking back and forth.
This shows excessiveness in this action. And secondly it also shows if they laugh What is the difference that one is trying to seduce and the other is resisting, one is trying to seduce and the other is resisting.
So this woman, she was constantly trying to seduce use of Ursula seductively walking past him again and again, going in front of him going back constantly she was doing that. But on the part of use of artemisinin, there was constant resistance.
You understand? She's coming again and again. But he is constantly resisting, repeatedly resisting.
So she tried to seduce him repeatedly in different ways in various attempts, because she had fallen in love with him.
And this woman was allottee, the one who, who he was meeting use of Allison and was Phoebe Thea in her house. And she tried to seduce him enough see from himself. What does it mean by this from himself meaning against himself from his firm intention and resolve to remain chaste?
Use of our salon was a believer, and he was going to remain chaste. But she tried to seduce him. And what did she do? We'll record and she closed, she shut up wherever all the doors
are locked is from the root letters line lamp off Rhonda, you League and the league is to lock up to close to shut and it is to shut to lock up something firmly.
And the structure of the word locker you will liquidate the league it gives them meaning of gradually meaning one after the other. And it also gives the meaning of firmly and strongly. So one door after the other she closed and she didn't just close the doors, she actually locked them so that no one could come in
and away was a plural of bad. It is said that she locked seven doors, seven doors. So it seems as though they used to live in a mansion in a big house. Perhaps there were many rooms. So she perhaps lock the main door and the upstairs or allow them one door after the other until she had locked seven doors to ensure that no one could come in and he would not be able to escape will unlock it.
And no one else was there. It was just him and her She locked everyone out. And she seduced him to the point that she locked herself and him up in a closed room. We'll call it and she said hey Tilak come here you
meaning she openly called him for Xena. Very seductively she called him prisoner very openly what qualitatively
the word hate Allah is actually an isn't fair and it gives the meaning of an of an imperative a command
and it gives a meaning of hurry Come on.
So she openly invited him. Secondly, it is also said that the word hater is pronounced as hit to hit to luck, or who eat to luck. And then it's from the roof over his head. Yeah, Hamza, from the word Haier, which is to prepare something
so hit to luck or who to luck meaning I am prepared for you. I'm ready for you come.
This is an open invitation of Xena.
He said What did you say? I said I'm say my other law. I seek refuge of Allah.
Allah, Allah, I seek refuge of Allah. If you notice the word Mirage is actually a noun, it means to seek refuge. He does not say rule to be law. What does he say morass of law?
Because when a person uses a main noun instead of a verb, what does it show? mobula it shows excessiveness intensity, in what he's demanding in what he is requesting. So my other law, that he will seeking refuge of of loss of predator immediately. He does not say, I trust myself. I can handle this on my own. No.
What does he do? He seeks the protection of Allah immediately. And he says in the whole of beat. Indeed he is my Lord, who is my Lord? This has been understood in two ways
that first of all in
Who He refers to a loss?
That may Allah protect me.
Allah forbid, may Allah save me. He is my Lord. He is my rock. He is my master. He is my Creator. He is my owner. And he has a Sunnah he has made good must wire my place of state
must work again. We have done this word earlier. So Well yeah, he has made my stay very good. How can I be disobedient in return?
Allah has been so good to me, so generous to me.
How can I be disobedient to him in return?
He has made my home so good my abode my residents so good. How can I do something that is haram? In my whole life recovery? No, the wrongdoers they can never be successful.
Secondly, this has been understood as that inner dialogue be, or be over here refers to my master.
And over here, he's referring to who there are these have missiles. Because the word Rob is also used for who Master? Remember one of the meanings of the word Rob his owner, say it master.
So he is my master, meaning your husband is my master. And he has been so generous to me. He has been so good to me. How can he betray him? How can I betray him? How can I be unfair to him by cheating him on his wife?
This is very improper. In the hula, you flick over the moon, the wrong doors they can never be successful. Who are the lolly moon over here? First of all the adulterers people who commit adultery because the person who commits adultery He is someone who is very unjust, because first of all, it is disobedience. And secondly it is also Fianna It is also cheating someone treachery.
Like for example, if a woman is married, and a person has dinner with her, then who is cheating her husband, if a woman is unmarried, and a person does dinner with her, then who is treating her family, her parents.
Secondly, a lolly moon has also been understood as those people who recommend the good that others do to them. How with bad
that my master has been so good to me. How can I do learn towards? How can I it's not right?
So what do we learn in this ayah.
First of all, we learn, as we discussed earlier that every blessing comes with a test.
every blessing comes with a test. There is no blessing, which is free of costs. Anything that you get, whether it is money, or a spouse, or a child, anything and everything, it will come with difficulties. Which is why whenever you buy something that tells you care instructions,
whenever you buy something big, you have to have insurance, you have to have some kind of warranty, some kind of repair system, who you're supposed to call 24 hour call service, you can just call them and ask them what's going on with your appliance or the machine and they will help you fix it.
So every blessing of this life comes with a problem. Use of Redis Anna was given a very good house to live in. He was not treated over there as a slave. But still there was a difficulty over there.
Secondly, we also learned that life is not free from tests never free from tests, use of RSM came out to one difficulty into another difficulty into another difficulty.
Then we also learned from this ayah about the importance of higher for women,
even those women who are older,
because if you look at it, there must have been a big age difference between this woman and use of medicine.
When use of penicillin was brought to the house, what did he say to his wife?
Maybe we will adopt him as his son. Can you imagine the age difference between the two
use of artists and I'm grew up in that house and he reached his manhood in that house. So you can imagine this woman must have been old she wasn't in her 20s very young and very restless. No, nor in her 30s known she was older. But still she developed love for who uses aneesa What does this show to us that a person even in older age, what are they required to do? lower their gaze, lower their gaze.
They should not look directly at who people who are non Muslim people who are not directly related to them. Similarly, for older women, even for them wearing the proper hijab, it is necessary because if they don't keep themselves chaste,
They don't lower their gaze, then what can that lead to? A lot of fitna a lot of problem.
Generally, we think that it's the men who can develop this kind of behavior towards women. But we see something completely different over here.
An older woman is developing love for who? a younger man, because the matter of the heart is sometimes beyond the control of a person, isn't it? It's beyond your control.
So this shows to us that we must lower our gaze, we must keep ourselves control, despite the age, despite who we're dealing with, even if they're 20 years younger than us, even if they're 10 years younger than us. Even then this is necessary.
Because sometimes we see that, especially in our cultures,
older women, sometimes they think that younger men, they're like their children,
and which is why they don't even realize they give them a big hug, and sometimes a big kiss, without realizing that, although there is a 20 year gap between me and him, still using nonverbal. Still, he's an unwelcome so what does it show to us that a woman can also develop love for a man who is younger than her which is why she should also lower her gaze. This lowering the game is not just for men, it's also for women.
We also learn from this that a person, he should avoid places of fitna
meaning a person should not be alone in a place where there are people of the opposite gender, he should not be alone over there, where there are people of the opposite gender, he should not mix with them freely. A person should not talk to the other laughingly and casually there should be some professionalism, some seriousness some kind of distance.
Because the more relaxed you become, the more casual you become, the more higher leaves, and when there is no higher than what happens. A person does whatever that he wishes.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, that whenever a man is alone with a woman than the devil makes a third. Now this does not mean that anytime a man and woman are alone, they're definitely doing something wrong and you should become suspicious. No, this is not what the meaning is.
What does this mean? That it's quite possible that they will incline to something that is wrong, because the heart is beyond your control. And if shaytaan is in your company, then you will know what might happen. You really don't know.
So a person should avoid places of fitness, use of medicine I'm happened to be alone With who?
With who would that woman it wasn't his fault. She is on who locked up all the doors and he was a slave after all, what could he do? He could not say to her, why are you locking up? No, it's not his choice.
And a lot of parents Allah says in the Quran insulted Islam, I number 32 that one out, acaba, Xena, and do not approach Xena because in the who can officiate and was a sebelah. It is ever an immorality. And it's also a very evil way. It's a very evil way of fulfilling your desires.
So in our Deen all the things that lead to Zener even they're forbidden.
Anything that leads to isn't it anything that leads to harm, even that is forbidden, which is why we see that even for older women, even if there's a lot of age difference, still, proper hijab must be observed. Still, there should be a kind of professionalism in the interaction that takes place between non Muslim between people who are unrelated. We also learn from this idea that when a person is in a situation of fitna, where another is trying to tempt him or her, what is the solution? in seeking the protection of law?
We see over here the use of SNMP does not discuss the problem with her. He does not try to make her understand. He does not argue, what does he do? May Allah protect me. And then the next day, we see that he ran away from there, he ran away in order to escape.
Sometimes, what happens with people, especially younger people, that for example, a woman is going to school or she's doing some work with a non macho man, and she feels uncomfortable with the way that he speaks to her with the way that he approaches her with the way that he looks at her. And sometimes we think that the solution isn't talking to the other person discussing the situation with them, you know, please, you shouldn't do this. Or maybe you should look for that which is halaal. I mean, this is not the way when you're in such a situation talking is not going to get you anywhere.
Before you convince them. It's possible that you end up doing something wrong. So what's the solution in leaving, getting out of it seeking the protection of a law immediate
Then we also see we also learned a very important thing from this ayah about the importance of fearing the loss of panel data when no one is watching, when all the doors are locked, when something is password protected, no one else can access, what is needed the fear of loss.
Because when a person has that fear, only then he can abstain from committing wrong use of it. Sam says my brother in law, he remembers a lover there he fears a lie in that situation.
We also learned something very important. That use of Edison he acknowledged the favor of his master,
didn't he? He says, My master has been so good to me. Or my Lord, Allah subhanaw taala has been so good to me. How can I be treacherous? How can I be disobedient?
So we see the use of Edison am he acknowledges the favorites of others upon him. He acknowledges those favorites. And this is a quality of who have a more sense of one who does good, and one who does.
Another very important lesson that we learned from this is that as Annie, a person who commits dinner, he can never ever be successful.
Because we learn in the whole area of recovery mode.
A person may enjoy some sexual enjoyment for the time being, but in the long run, he will not be successful.
At the end, he will be brokenhearted. He will be guilty. Or he will feel that he has been used, she will feel that she has been used she has been deserted. Perhaps there will be some disease, some infection it happens,
and especially who suffers most women in these situations. So Xena is low on oneself and a person who commits his act, he can never be successful.
Also, one more important thing that the sign of successful people is that they do not do his own when other people in our livelihood.
So what does it show to us, that a person who is successful, he does not do his own, he is not unjust towards others.
What are the hammer to be and certainly she had intended, she had determined to seduce him. Hamlet is from the root fetters hair may mean from the word ham, which is to resolve to have a firm resolve in the heart to be determined to do something. It is basically to make an intention to think about it, to think as to how a person is going to carry it out how a person is going to do something, so allow for the hammer to be she firmly intended to seduce him, she was fully determined to commit Zina with him.
And he had also intended, he would also have inclined to her Lola If not, and that he saw bouddhanath be the clear proof of his Lord,
she had decided and he would also have agreed, if he did not see the bottom hand of his Lord. Now what does this mean by
the word bow hand is from the roof address the
barrier, which literally means to be clear, to be radiant.
And from this horrible hand is used for a radiant proof, the clear proof just imagine an evidence that is bright. If something that is bright, can you ignore it?
Can you ignore it? Just imagine bright light? Can you ignore it? No.
Can you deny it? No, it's in your face, it attracts your attention, you cannot forget about it, you cannot be oblivious towards it.
So berghahn is an evidence not something that is tangible necessarily, and evidence that cannot be ignored, that cannot be denied. So he saw the berghahn of his Lord, and because of that, he did not incline towards
what is this book?
This has been understood in various ways. Some have said that your covert Islam was made to appear before him he saw an image of airacobra and some others have said that he saw some Angel before him. But there is no solid evidence behind that.
What we see what we find out is that borhan is something some kind of evidence like for example, a reminder that this is a wrong action. This is something not right. Or for example, bohan could refer to the favours of disease, which made him realize that he should not do such a thing.
At that point, he realized that he should not commit such an action
It was by some reminder, this realization that this is a wrong action. This is something how long he remembered the dinner is unlawful.
So because he saw the bad hand, what happened? He did not intend to commit that action with her.
If you look at the word Lola
while I called him a Mohammed v wahama, behat, Lola, Allah, Abu hanabi. This has been understood in two ways. First of all, it has been said that will offer the hammock v wahama beha.
you pause over there, the sentence completes over here.
The first way of understanding this idea is that she firmly intended and he also firmly intended, both had intended
because for a man to be in this situation, where a woman has been constantly seducing him over a period of time, and now she shuts all the doors and openly she says, hate Anak, then imagine for any man is going to be natural to make such a decision to fall into that situation. So he had also intended
but Lola, Allah Abul hanabi, if he had not seen the berghahn of his Lord, he would have committed but because he saw the berghahn he did not commit genocide, because he saw the berghahn he did not commit. Secondly, others have said that no, it cannot be imagined that a prophet of Allah would even intend to commit such an action.
So we have to understand this text another way and what is that that will occur, the harm might be false. And then we're home. We had Lola, our Abba handler.
And he would also have intended if he had not seen the berghahn of this form.
So in other words, because he saw the forehand he did not even make the intention.
gallica likewise, what does likewise refer to the Justice Allah subhanaw taala showed him the bullhorn
and he intended not to commit that evil action with her. Lena Slee found one so that we turn away from him assume the evil one fascia and the indecency.
What the suit refer to the evil action, Pollyanna treachery, deceit,
Pollyanna, towards who has money Master, and fascia indecency. What does that refer to Xena
in the who, indeed, he maneri vanina. From our servants, he was Muslim. He was of those who were chosen. And because he was of those who are chosen, Allah subhanaw taala saved him. What do we learn from this?
We see that the wife of ours is she developed love for use of herself. And she fell in love with him Why? Because of his good looks. He was extremely handsome, extremely handsome.
And it is also said that disease, because of the position that he had in that country, he was a finance minister. As I mentioned to you earlier, he did not have any children of his own.
And it is also said that he would not even approach his wife,
he will not even approach his wife, why perhaps he was very busy. Perhaps he didn't have any interest in family life, he was just concerned with his work.
This is according to some prophecy, which you find in various books, that he did not even approach his wife.
So we see that when the Help is not given, then what happens? A person tries to fulfill his desires through incorrect ways.
So for example, if there are parents, and their daughter, or their son is young, and they say they want to get married, and they don't get married deliberately, and they fear for their chastity, and if something wrong happens, then whose fault is it, it is their fault, but at the same time, it's all to the fault of the parents, because they should give them the right that they deserve.
If legally they are allowed to get married, then they should cooperate with them. They should assist them especially if they want to save themselves from harm. Unfortunately, our focus becomes no they should develop a career. Yes, that's extremely important, very, very important. Because if a person is married, has a family and has no means to support them, and cannot even understand how to deal with his wife or her husband, then what's the objective of marriage that is also essential, but at the same time, it is also important to give the help.
So we see that because she was deprived with this help. She tried fulfilling that how through incorrect ways.
Then we also learn from this that the women
they are a very big fitna for who for many
Because we see that this woman, she constantly tries to seduce him to the point that she locks up all the doors, and she calls him.
Now for any man to be in this situation, if he makes the intention even to do something wrong, this is only natural, which is why Allah subhanaw taala says wahama be here, and he also intended, he also intended.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, that I did not leave behind me a test that is more tempting to men than women.
A very difficult test for me. Now, this does not mean that women are inherently evil. What does it mean?
That men just love women? And because of that reason, what should they do? What should women do?
They should try to protect themselves, they should try to guard their chastity and also remain modest.
And remember that use of it Sam, he made the intention according to an opinion, according to their opinion, he didn't even make that intention.
Now, if a person makes the intention to do something wrong, is he blameworthy?
Is he blameworthy?
As long as he does not follow it by action. This is a special gift upon who upon the Muslim,
we learned that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that a loss of data says that if my slave intends to perform a good deed, then recorded for him as one good deed.
And if he performs it, then recorded for him as multiplied 10 times and if he intends to commit an evil action, but is not committed. And if he left it for my sake,
then recorded for him as one good deed. But if he commits it, then write it as one evil.
So what do we learn that if a person only makes the intention, but he does not do it deliberately, not by chance, he doesn't get the opportunity? What is it that deliberately he leaves it, then that is also a means of reward.
Then we also seen this idea that it is a huge blessing of Allah subhanaw taala. When at the moment of opportunity to sin, commit something that is evil, commit something that is immoral,
a person remembers that he should not be doing it.
It's a big gift of Allah, it's a big favor of Allah.
When at that very moment, a person realizes a person remembers that he should not be doing it.
For example, the person is talking, a woman is talking to a friend.
And all of a sudden they start talking about someone else in a negative way.
And she remembers this is LIBOR. And immediately she stops. This is what a big gift of law. It's a big blessing.
Because sometimes what happens is people they don't even remember, they don't even realize they only realize after committing that action, but it's too late by them.
So over here, Allah subhanaw taala showed him the bullhorn, he showed him the evidence that reminded him that he should not be committing such an action. And this is a huge gift of a loss apprentice.
How does a person become deserving of this gift that he gets the reminder at the right time? How does a person become deserving of this gift?
When a person constantly remembers almost.
For example, we learned from the Hadees that our beloved in our bus he said
that one day I was behind the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he said to me, oh young man, I shall teach you some words of advice.
Be mindful of Allah.
And Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and Allah will protect you. If you remain conscious, most of the time, as much as is within your ability, then at times when you're overcome by emotion. At times, when you're put in a very difficult situation, Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and you will find him before you
remember him and you will find him before you.
So what do we learn that in order to become deserving of this gift, that right at the moment of doing something wrong at the opportunity to sin?
We remember we should not be doing this. What do we need to do? We need to remember a lot the rest of the time.
And when a person remembers a lot the rest of the time, then what happens? A loss a penalty, a loss of data protection.
We also learned in this ayah that there is absolutely no justification for committing something that is wrong. Committing something that is sinful. If you look at it user friendly salon, he does not say over here Well, it's not my fault.
I didn't start it. I didn't initiate this. I never tried to seduce him. I always resisted. I didn't close the doors, I have been put in the situation. And if I've been put in the situation that means I should be allowed to do it.
He doesn't say anything like that. He realizes there is something wrong and he seeks the protection of a loss of predator.
And imagine he is a slave. He does not have any choice. And she has done a lot of favors to him, because she is the wife of his master. She has been told by the husband that she should provide him a very good residence. Now imagine how awkward it must have been for use of Edison empty refuse at that moment. But still, he refuses because there is no justification for doing something wrong. He does not say or I'm forced. Definitely he was being forced. But he does not fall over there. He remembers that this is something wrong. This is not right. And he does not do it.
