Yusuf 36-57 Word Analysis and Tafsir 36-38
Are we let him in the shade line over James Miller had recommended for him.
That's number 124. So let's use it number 36 to 57.
What the hell, Amara who see Jennifer Diane, and they're entered the prison with him two young men.
When you suffer in a salon, he was sent to the prison. Along with him. Two young men were also set, they entered the prison along with him.
For the end is the dual. It's the destiny of the word fatter, fatter,
and fatter, is used for a young man. As we learned earlier, dude, all we do further.
And as I mentioned to you earlier, that hold'em is our younger boy, and further is one who's older than him, for ties from puberty to full manhood.
For that is from puberty, to what age for manhood. And this word father is also used for slaves, just as a word of lamb is also used for slaves. This word is also used for slaves. Why?
Because slaves of this age were preferred.
Why do you think so?
They're more active, right? They're more stronger. They don't have families to support, isn't it so they will take less holidays.
Because when you have someone who is working for you, and they're older, it'll be more difficult to command them to instruct them. They might disagree with you, they might not listen to you. They might request for breaks, etc, etc. But a younger person, he's more active.
And this also shows to us that the best age of serving people is what age
when you're young.
And you can say that this age is about from Unum all the way to the completion of the day, it's from early teens, all the way up to almost the age of 30. And a little bit beyond that. So until the age of a should.
So when a person is young, he has more physical ability, this is the best time to serve people.
Remember, this is not the best time to get served. Unfortunately, that's what many of us want, that we should be given our breakfast and our laundry should be done for us. And we should be driven around everywhere. This is the time to serve people. This is the time to serve your parents to serve your grandparents. Not when you become old and you're busy with your children, then you don't have any energy left. Nor do you have any time. That's not the best time. The best time is when
your teens, that's the best time.
So do young men, they also enter the prison with use of an incident. It is said that these two men were the servants of the king, who are the servants of the king, the king of Egypt.
Remember that there are Aziz he was not the king.
There Aziz was who the finance minister,
and the Moloch he was a king. Some say that the king was the pharaoh for their own as well at that time. However, the word fit our own has not been used for that kink.
It hasn't been used for that kink allow arland perhaps the title for their own came about later.
And these two people, these two men, one is said to be the sappy meaning the chief goth bear have the king, the one who would serve water to the king,
the chief cup bearer, the one who would bear the cup of the king, the Serbian water.
And the other was the chief Baker, the one who would prepare his food and serve the king. So it wasn't just one person who would serve the food to the king, one would bring his cup, and the other would bring his food.
And these two men, they were accused of having attempted to kill the king.
It is said that they offered poisoned food to him.
And it was discovered and because of that both of them they were sent to prison.
There have been various opinions with regards to what exactly happened with these human. According to some what happened was that there were some people who wish to kill the king. And just as any person who is in such a high authority, if people want to kill that person, who do they approach their private servants, right.
So similarly, the people they approach the private servants of the king
and the cop there, he did not agree.
But the baker he agreed.
So what they did was that the baker he brought food that was poisoned
and the cup bear
brought water but it wasn't poisoned.
Now as soon as the food was served to the king, the cup bearer he said, don't eat this food. It's poisoned.
When the baker heard that, he said, No, no, this water that he has brought to you that is poison.
So now the king was like, okay, who's lying? Who's speaking the truth. So both of them were sent to the gym. And then later on, it was discovered that when the water was fed to perhaps an animal, that animal survival when that food was fed, that animal passed away or lower than what exactly happened, but it was later discovered that who was at fault, the bakery and not the copier, but the copier was also accused, which is why both of them were sent to the jail, along with use of Redis and they entered at the same time.
Connor had a woman, one of them said, one of these two men who entered with use of insulin, they said to use of Isilon that in the arani Indeed, I saw myself a sudo hombre that I am pressing Why are isolated from the root letters I installed the Isola Yasuo, which is to press to squeeze juice out of something.
For example, fruit, similarly, it is also used for pressing or squeezing clothes in order to drench the water out of them.
from the same root is the word or muscle which is used for
time will last right as soon as what time because as time goes by what happens people are squeezed out of their energy right out of their moisture, even their skin begins to wrinkle, their abilities begin to deteriorate. So as time goes by, people are squeezed out of their energies. And also if you look at it, once a fruit has been squeezed and juice has been extracted out of it, it appears to be old and wrinkled.
So he said that I saw myself meaning in my dream, I saw a dream and I saw myself that I am pressing hammer on wine.
Hammer is used for wine, but in particular, it is used for such wine that is made from grapes.
So he said that I saw myself pressing grapes for making wine.
In my dream I saw that I'm pressing grapes for making wine.
What kind of a hero and the other man said that in the Hourani indeed I saw myself in my dream that I am carrying from the root letters, handyman Hamel that I am carrying full of see above my head clubs and bread clubs, this bread caught that day. This word I'm sure you're familiar with, right?
So I saw myself carrying bread upon my head.
And this bread, that Gulu fireman who birds are eating out of it.
I have bread on top of my head and birds, they're coming in eating of that bread.
So these men say that now Bittner inform us with that wheelie with its interpretation, Dennis about the interpretation of these dreams of ours. In Antarctica, indeed, we see you mean and mazzini of those who do.
It has said that when these two men when they entered the prison,
they saw use of RSM, they noticed him they sensed his good behavior. And they could figure out that he was not an ordinary person, he was knowledgeable. And because of that, these dreams, these strange dreams they had, they went in I asked him this, like if a person has a strange dream, who will he ask someone whom he considers to be knowledgeable.
So similarly, these men also they went up to him, and they asked him about the interpretation of their dreams. And look at what they say to him that inner alchemy and mercy, we see you have those people who do
these two people, they give him the title of emotion. Whereas if you look at it use of our his son, I was living were now in a prison.
And he was sent to the prison out of injustice, it wasn't his fault. And living in a prison is not easy.
It's like a prison is like a graveyard for who, for the living.
And just as when you go to a graveyard, it's extremely depressing. Similarly, when you go to a prison, it's extremely depressing, imprisonment. It makes you miserable. It makes you frustrated, it makes you sad and angry and depressed.
Because a prison is a place where people are physically confined. Physically, they're confined either to their cell or to a limited area, or to a building or to a particular floor.
There's guardrails everywhere. People are physically confined, and they're also deprived of various personal freedoms. For example, if a person wishes to go
From his room to the washroom, he will not be allowed to go, he has to defecate in his cell, he has to stay over there. He is physically confined. If he wants to go meet his family, he cannot go. If he wants to go to the mall, he cannot go. He is physically confined and deprived of many personal freedoms.
And if you look at it, some prison cells are very small, extremely small, where a person has to sleep and he has to eat and he has to use the bathroom and everything else over there. And the only time that he comes out is for what purpose, perhaps for some torture, for some interrogation, for a court hearing,
or perhaps for some hard labor.
So you can imagine that living in a prison is extremely difficult. And remember, the prisons of the past, dungeons were very common.
Where there's dark, there's no sunlight, no fresh air, people are confined, and people are also physically tortured.
Now, just imagine a person is living in these circumstances, just put yourself in a situation like this, where you are physically confined,
your freedom is limited. You're not allowed to make choices.
And in that situation, somebody calls you Emerson.
People are calling him who Emerson.
Many times that happens with people that they are in situations where they become confined, other people force things upon them. And they feel that their life is limited. It's constricted,
like a typical example could be a woman, she gets married, and she thinks at the time of marriage, now I'm going to be free. And she ends up in the house of who her in laws, where if she wants to go somewhere, she has to ask everyone.
If she wishes to do something, she's not given the permission.
If she wants to cook, she's not allowed. If she wants to put things a certain way, she's not allowed. If she wants to invite people over, she's not allowed. If she wants to go somewhere, there's a list of house chores.
So she feels as if she is also imprisoned,
she does not have the choice.
Or, for example, she has a child, she has many children. And because of that her life feels like she's living in a jail cell. Because going out of the house becomes very difficult.
inviting people also becomes very difficult. Similarly, there could be a person who is living in a hostel.
And in that hostel, there are certain rules that they have to follow. If they want to call at a particular time, they cannot call if they want to use a computer at a particular time, they cannot use that.
They want to go out with their friends have some friends over they cannot do that. It happens in life with many people in different situations. Similarly, when you go to school, there are certain rules that you have to follow. There are certain times in which you have to be in class, if you want to go eat, you cannot go eat. If you want to go talk to your friends, you cannot go talk if you want to talk on the phone, you can't do that you have to be in the class. And in these situations, we think that we are so unfortunate. And because of that we think that we have the permission to behave however we want. We can yell at people, we can shout at them. Because it's their fault. They're
being unjust. So what do we blame? circumstances for what our wrong behavior?
But use of it Sam does not blame his circumstances for his wrong behavior. No, he does not have any wrong behavior. Just imagine the prison inmates are calling him a motion. Someone who is very nice. How is it possible for someone to be a Martian in a prison? It's something that is unimaginable. It's something that is difficult to comprehend.
Sometimes we blame the weather. This is very dark today. It's still too cold.
Or I'm not feeling well. Women in particular, they have an excuse every month for their bad behavior for their moodiness.
I'm being very snappy. I'm being very moody because of this and this reason, I'm cramping and so on and so forth. All the time. We blame people. We blame circumstances. We blame the weather. We blame the time of the month for what our bad behavior. But again, this is not an excuse. This is not an excuse. Because use of our SLM he is immersing in the prison
in Ireland are aka men and mazzini.
It is true that our circumstances they do affect us.
We're not saying over here that they don't affect us of course they affect us. But just because they affect us does not mean we can behave however we want. We have to control ourselves.
We must control ourselves.
And we must always remember the situation that use of originalmente. Definitely his situation was much more difficult.
It was much more difficult. So we need to see as well.
That Are we immersing in our house? And our in laws at the hostel? at the workplace? How do people perceive us?
Are we approachable? Or do they think many times before talking to us?
That she's going to yell at me, she's going to snap at me, she's going to give me that look.
She's going to start again.
What is our behavior? What is our reputation? Rather? How do people perceive us? Is it that of a mersin? or something else? We have to see that? Are we emotion in the eyes of people who live with us? Or are we someone who is a source of negativity?
Someone who is a source of tension, someone who is a source of discomfort?
when other people come in when they see us? Are they uncomfortable? Or do they become relaxed?
What kind of feelings? Are we spreading around ourselves?
If you are a salon was a person in that situation? Then what is our state? What is our behavior?
You see, it's all about the prospective
use of artists and accepted it as a decree of Allah.
And he took that prison to be a means of saving himself from a greater harm.
Similarly, if we take every difficult situation, positively, then our behavior will be completely different.
If we consider difficulties to be learning experiences, then we will look at them completely differently.
If for example, we are confined, in a hospital, in a house, at the in laws place, and we take it as a learning experience that Allah is teaching me something over here.
Ally's teaching me something over here that perhaps I love, you know, household things. I love things that are of this world, and perhaps a loss of planetary wants to take that love out of my heart. This is why he's put me in the situation, because every girl, what is your dream of her own house, right? That she's going to set it up this way, she's going to do this, and then she's gonna have a party, and then she's going to have this dinner set out. And she's going to arrange it this way. Every girl has this, she has these kind of dreams, these wishes. But if she's put in a situation where she doesn't have any freedom, then she should look at that positively. Maybe Allah
does not want me to waste my time on these things.
Maybe Allah wants me to do something that is different.
There is some wisdom behind it. If you take it as a learning experience as a learning opportunity, your approach will be completely different. So the test is our patients.
That what do we do? How do we behave? And sometimes we are extremely patient for a long time. And then finally, we burst where like that's
what is the test that we have to be patient all the way till the end?
Sometimes women don't say anything for many years until eventually they erupt and they start yelling. And then that yelling does not stop.
Either. He said, use of RSM he responds to them. And he says, ley de Kuma, it will not come to you to
what will not come to you, Thurman food,
which food dozer Connie, that both of you are provided
before your food comes to you, inland, but to Kumar with that we the cabinet and
I will inform you about the interpretation of your dreams.
Before your food comes to you, I will tell you about the interpretation of your dreams.
If you notice over here, he says, for Amazon, to the corny food that you are provided with. It's not that you have to go and make your own food and cook it and prepare it yourself and then eat that food. No, look at you, you're so comfortable. You're sitting over here and food is brought to you some say it was brought to them by their own family members, because that was the rule at that time. And others say that no it was brought to them by who by the prison guards. So he says that before your food comes, I will tell you about the interpretation of your dream.
So he reminds them of a favor
over here that is done to them.
And this is how a person must be in difficult situations that he should look at the positive side of everything.
You should look at the positive side of everything. For example
If a woman is living with her in laws, and she's not allowed to cook in the kitchen, she should take it as a good thing.
I don't have to cook, I only have to do the dishes.
It's a blessing in disguise. Just imagine if she had to cook for so long. But what is the general complaint? No, I want to cook myself. I'm a younger, when will I learn. But the fact is that if you cannot cook right now, do something else take it as a blessing. So he reminds him of this blessing, this food is brought to you. So we should focus on the positives in every situation.
And I would inform you before the food comes to you. Why does he say this to them? That I would inform you of the interpretation before the food comes to you.
Because he wished to convey the message of the heat to them as well.
He wish to do some damage to them.
And he wanted to do their work at this point when they asked him about the interpretation of their dreams. Why? Because when a person asks you a question,
he is more receptive at that point isn't, he's more interested at that point. So he wanted to seize this opportunity, you want to avail this opportunity, and you wanted to tell them about the heat at this point.
And it would be inappropriate for him to start talking about the heat, whereas these people are talking to him asking him about what about their dreams. So he says that I will tell you about the interpretation of the dream. But before that, let me just tell you one thing, just hear me. Just listen to me this listen to one thing that I have to say to you. And it will be short, it won't be too long. Just within a few minutes, by the time your food comes, I will tell you what I have to say. And I will also tell you about the interpretation of your dream.
What do we learn what we hear?
Very good behavior. That when they're asking him about one thing, he doesn't go on telling them other things. He tells them how long the answer is going to be, how long they will have to wait. And it's a part of being courteous. It's a part of being professional,
that you tell the other person, how long it will be what you will tell them what you will talk to them about. So in the end, to come up with a really COVID at acumen. And he says then he commands that Oh, you do so firstly, he says, Remember that this knowledge that you're asking me about the interpretation of the dream. This is mimma from that which I learned to be my lord has taught me. So he says to them that Firstly, remember that what I'm going to tell you is not my own achievement.
I am going to tell you the interpretation of your dream based on what the knowledge that Allah has given me.
So in other words, he's telling them I'm not a fortune teller.
I'm not someone who knows the unseen. I'm not a soothsayer. I'm just a human being. And my Lord has given me this knowledge.
And I'm telling you about the interpretation based on that knowledge.
Because generally, when people are asked such questions, interpretation of dreams, what's going to happen? What do people generally think about such people,
that they have some knowledge of the unseen that they have some ability, they know, they're up there, but he tells them, this knowledge is based on what Allah subhanaw taala has taught me, it's not my own achievement. It's not my personal knowledge, Allah has started to me. And he always has this to tell them that what I'm telling you is from Allah, so it is free from any error.
It is free from any error.
And by saying this daddy commandment ma lemony Robbie. In other words, he is acknowledging the favor of Allah upon him.
What is he doing? He's acknowledging the favor of Allah upon
that this is not my own achievement. It's the blessing of Allah, which is why the people of gentlemen, when they will enter Jannah in total are of I 43. What do we learn that they will say Alhamdulillah he led he had an and he had a woman called Nellie, Natalia, Lola and her Donna, this is the blessing of Allah, we could never have done this ourselves. So he's making this clear to them.
Secondly, he says that in me Dr. Miller told me, I have left the creed of a people which people lie You mean una bella him who do not believe in Allah will whom will karate and they in the hereafter Home Capital their disbelievers. Secondly, know that my religion is that of the heat.
I have left the religion of people who don't believe in Allah or the last day.
I am not associated with them. I have nothing to do with them. I have no relationship with them.
There are also some newsletters that are all caps and talk is to leave something, to abandon something.
Sometimes it is used for leaving something that a person is engaged in. And sometimes it is used for
having no relationship with something over here, he does not mean that I was upon their religion, and now I have left it no use of Islam was a Muslim, from the beginning. What he's saying over here is that I have nothing to do with it. I have no relation with them.
So over here, he tells them about his Eman about his faith. And he emphasizes on two main aspects of belief, what are they?
What are they belief in Allah, and the hereafter?
And when you're doing there are many times you don't have a lot of time to talk about everything. So what should you emphasize on
these two main principles, these two main beliefs belief in Allah as well as the last day.
So we see that the people of Egypt, they were idol worshipers, they were mostly King.
And he clarifies to them, these two meant that I do not follow the religion of the people of Egypt.
I am not emotionally like them.
So indirectly, he was saying that this entire nation
is following one way and what is that way of ship,
but I am following the way off the heat, I am only one person. And the rest of them, they have their own religion.
Now, when you present yourself like that, that I am alone in what I am doing, I am the only one who is doing this. Everybody else is doing something different.
People might not trust you, isn't it? People might not trust you. But if you tell them that no, there are other people as well who are doing the same thing as I am doing, then what happens? It adds weight to your statement. Like for example, if you tell someone about a particular field of study that you're doing,
you go to a particular college, it's a no name college, nobody's heard about it.
So when you tell people, they're like, Where is it? I've never heard of that school. What program? Is it? Really, it's been there for so long. I never knew about it. So you tell them that no, you know, even this person has studied from that college, even this person has studied from that college, I'm not the only one. When you say that other people have also done the same thing as you, it adds weight to your statement. This is why use of nslm says that what the bar to mean letter Abba II. And instead I follow the religion of who my forefathers. I'm not the only one who is Ubuntu hate. You see me as one person on the hate and the rest of the nation on chick. But I'm not the only
one who's doing this. Before me there were people who are also on the religion of the heat. So I am following the religion of who my forefathers, Ibrahim was how we are Who?
And all of them were Who? prophets.
And the fact that he mentioned their names, it shows that these prophets of Allah, were perhaps well known at that time.
Because he mentioned him by name, Ibrahim is happier Who? So what does it show that perhaps they were well known at this time, perhaps the people of Egypt are also aware of them, they must have heard about them.
Like, for example, if today you tell someone about the profits out of autism, even if the majority of people are not Muslim, haven't they heard about him? They have. So it's also possible that the people of Egypt had heard about these prophets of Allah.
And he says to them, that mark and Elena it is not permissible for us it is not correct for us. Initially Kabila he that we associate partners with Allah minchah in from anything, it is not allowed for us that we associate any partner at all with Allah.
It does not suit us to do that. Because Allah subhanaw taala is the only God
and vaniqa that is, what does that refer to? The hate this religion of the heat and the ability to observe this religion?
This is menfolk Lila here, Elena, this is of the bounty of Allah upon us. This guidance is a huge favor of law upon us. It's not our own achievement. It's the favor of rule of law.
But it's not a favor just upon me and my predecessors, but rather it is a favor upon who else were Ireland nurse and also upon the rest of the people. Meaning this religion is not just for us, but it is a universal message. It's a message for everyone.
When I can act on nerves
But most of the people liars, Quran, they are not grateful, not grateful for what? For this blessing of religion, which is why they don't observe it.
We see over here the use of artisanal he mentioned his forefathers, and he mentioned his religion.
And he says that it would not be permissible for us to associate partners with Allah. And the religion that we are upon this is a huge favor of Allah.
The question is, is he praising himself over here is this self projection? Like, for example, you're talking to someone, you tell them about the particular college, you're going to
tell them about what you're studying. You tell them about your family. You know, I'm becoming a doctor, my father was also a doctor, my grandfather was also a doctor.
And his father was also a doctor.
Is it self protection? It could be if a person is doing it in order to gain fame.
But it's not self projection when a person is trying to explain to the other,
that what I'm doing is not something new. What I'm doing is not something strange. This has been the norm amongst the people of the past. So it's okay for a person to say something like this when he wishes to add weight to his statement when he wishes to add weight to his claim.
This is the reason why he's saying this.
Now, look at the way that he is doing our
look at his method of W. He uses a lot of wisdom.
He uses a lot of wisdom.
He doesn't just tell them what you're doing is wrong. By the way you shouldn't be doing check, let me tell you about the interpretation. But what you're doing is shooting women early. It's gonna lead you to hellfire. Look at the way he's approaching them. That Firstly, know that I am telling you this interpretation based on the knowledge that Allah has given me. Secondly, my religion is that authority, which is a huge favorite from Allah. So when you're telling someone
about their religion, when you're doing Dawa, there are some important rules that we must observe. What are the very important rules?
What do we learn from these is
very important rules that we must observe when we are doing our
first of all, tell the other person who you are.
Introduce yourself a little bit.
Because he's telling them about his forefathers. He's telling them about who he is where he's come from. He's telling them about his religion, what he does what he practices. Because unless you introduce yourself to the other, the other person will not be able to relate with you. He'll be constantly wondering, who is she? Who is he? Why is she talking to me? Because sometimes we just walk out of nowhere in front of the other person and we start talking to them. Introduce yourself a little bit, tell them who you are. Similarly, if you're telling someone about the Quran, tell them that you are studying the Quran, you can introduce yourself. And remember, you're not doing this to
show off, you're doing this, why do add weight to your statement to add credibility. This is the reason why he's saying this. Another very important thing that we learn from this is
that when you mentioned something,
when you narrate something, when you inform of something, make sure you tell the other person about the reference as well.
Talk about the references.
Like for example, if you're doing Dawa, and you just randomly say that, by the way, the prophets of Allah sort of is considered to be the most successful person in history. What's your reference behind that? What's your evidence behind that?
Have some research with you
have the name of some book with you the name of some author, the name of some, you know, something or the other, with which you can show your credibility that what you're saying is true. Have some evidence. Because over here, what does use of a histogram say that what I'm saying to you is not something new. This is what my forefathers were also practicing.
And this is the reason why it has been the tradition of the Muslim scholars, that whenever they would narrate the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what would they do? They always mentioned the chain of narration as well, that I heard from so and so who heard from so and so all the way up to the prophet SAW them Honestly, this was always the tradition until the Hadees were recorded in books. And now what do we do we just got the name of the book and that's sufficient. So always give reference because when you give a strong reference, then what you saying becomes more effective, it becomes more weighty it becomes more acceptable
To the other
