Then he says, Yes, I have a usage, all my do companions of prison. Look at the way he addresses them.
He calls them saw him. Why?
Because there's something common between the three of them.
The word Sahil Bane is actually the dual of. So I have, and the known of Sahih, Bane has been dropped because Sahiba usage is
so heavy, and the year at the end is of multicolumn. So because of that, it's moved off of LA, therefore the moon has been dropped.
And the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they were also called to have a Why? Because they became Muslim, at the time that he was alive.
And they were his students, they learned from him.
The use of penicillin called them his own companions. Why? Because of a common feature amongst them. And what was a common feature? imprisonment, all of them were in the prison. Because when a person shares in something with the other, automatically, he feels closer to him, isn't it? Like, for example, you go somewhere to someone's house and you meet a person, you don't know them from before and you just say that these days, I'm doing the Moodle course. And this lady goes, that you know, I'm doing it online. All of a sudden, what's going to happen? You're going to feel closer to her. Automatically, you're going to start talking more with her, you're going to start discussing things
with her. Because naturally when there is a common feature between two people, they feel closer, isn't it? And this is the reason why all the prophets of Allah when they did Dara, what did they say? Yeah, oh, me or my people. Similarly, use of nslm says yes, or heavy, or my two companions have a smidgen of the prison. And from this, we can also learn an important etiquette, when we're doing Dawa. That if we're addressing people, we can say to them, our fellow Canadians,
our fellow citizens or something like that, because when you mentioned the common feature, people feel less threatened. They don't feel threatened.
And there is no lie about it. You are Canadian. And whenever somebody asks you, what's your citizenship? What do you write?
Do you write Muslim? What do you write? Canadian? So similarly, for living in this country? There are other people whom you're talking to you're giving Dawa to them? What can you say my fellow Canadians, you don't have to show them that my Canadian identity is higher than that of Islam. That's not an issue over here. You're talking about the place that you're living in? What is the common factor between you?
And you're not doing this in order to show yourself a smile before them? You're doing this to make them feel comfortable? Which is why all the prophets of Allah What did they say? Yeah, call me. Although there are people were disbelievers. They were not Muslim, but still they call them yeah, call me. Send me similarly, we must also do Darwin in this way.
So he says, Yeah, sorry. But you see Genie, out of Babylon are Lords that are most of Federico. Different, diverse are the hyenas are they better? I'm in LA, who? Or Allah, Who is Allah had one alcohol the prevailing? So he questions them over here. Notice he's not just lecturing. One thing after the other. After mentioned two or three things, what does he do? He makes him question because when a person is questioned, what happens? His mind becomes more alert. So he asks them on Babel are Lords with the federal code, or Bab is Florida? Rob, remember we did this word earlier as well? Where
dialogue with our colleague Martin, so our banner will be nickel. And all those points is that we will not take besides Allah or Bab so our Bab is a Thor love Rob which is Lord. So he asks them that our motive for recon Lord with the Vatican is a Florida for the father and who is metaphoric?
One who is separate from the other one who is different from the other. So with the folio cone, several scattered diverse gods, are they better? I'm 11 haha or Allah who is one, the prevailing
The one who is a hell over everyone in everything when was complete control.
user is around.
He draws the attention of his companions to the futility of *.
That how wrong it is it does not make any sense. It's completely illogical.
That if there are so many gods,
is it better to have many gods or is it better to have just one supreme pervading God? He makes some things
And he mentioned this to them because this is very relevant to them.
These people were servants or slaves, and slaves are owned by
one person. Correct. If one slave is owned by many masters, you can imagine his life. One Master says do this, the other Master says no, don't do that. There will always be a clash, always, all the time conflicts. So he asks them this question because it's extremely relevant to them. And through this, he's trying to prove the heat to them.
And if you look at it, instead of forcing his opinion on them, he makes them think so that they can decide themselves. And this is also what we must do. Instead of telling people all the time, this is what you should believe in this is what you should believe in, what should we do? Ask them questions, so that they can use their own mind and they can decide for themselves.
And he uses a very basic example, very basic, that just think about it. If there are many gods one god of the sun, one god of the rain, one God of risk, another of life. And other of that, would that bring benefit to you? Or one God who has control over everything? Would he bring benefiting?
Because of there are many gods what would happen, the God of rain would want to send rain and the God of sun would want to bring the sun out. And there would be a conflict, which would lead to a war eventually.
And it's sad that people actually have stories about wars amongst Gods as well, and still do not understand this.
When they see the heavens and the earth, how they're functioning so perfectly.
Doesn't that show to a person that there is only one God? So he asks them that who is better one God, or multiple gods?
And he says to them that matter bloomin dooney, you do not worship besides him in less man except names. In reality, who are you worshiping? Just names.
And if you look at it, a name is something that is abstract.
A name aim is something that has
a name belongs to who or being an A being is an object, a name itself is nothing without a being.
So he is telling them that you are in reality only worshipping names. Because these names that you have designated to these objects, they don't exist in reality.
Some may demo how you all have named them, until you whatever outcome and your forefathers and these names matter under the law, we'll be having some fun, Allah has not given you any authority for that you should give names to certain beings and declare them as gods.
It's not possible in and hawkmoon not the decision in law except the love for Allah.
The decision belongs to rule only almost, why does he say this? That when Allah has not allowed you, that you should give names to certain objects and declare them as gods, then how can you do that? judgment belongs to Allah only all kinds of hokum, of life, of death, of wealth of illness of rain, fate, everything belongs to apply. People cannot make up laws and rules for their religion, human beings, they must follow the rules that Allah has made, they cannot make up the rules of their religion.
In hookman, lol Allah amaura and Allah has commanded a leather Buddha to do not worship Allah yo except only him.
Allah commands you that you should only worship Him.
And if you have declared that there are other gods besides Him, there is no evidence behind that.
There Lika Dino Chi him that is the right religion, what is the right religion, the religion of their heat, when I can act on NASA layer mamoun, but most of the people they do not know.
So in the first part of the ayah, he states that Allah subhanaw taala has not sent down any permission for worshipping other gods.
And in the second part, what is emphasized that in matters of religion, there is none except a lot to give roots.
It's only a loss of data, who decrees who decides the religion? People cannot make up their own rules for religion?
And if you think of it, what's happening, he's talking to who? The prisoners then your country what's happening, people themselves have made rules of their religion. How can you make rules for your religion when Allah has not allowed something like this?
So we see that in this very short address use of an s&m conveys to them the message of tawheed
he conveys to them the knowledge of the previous prophets.
he conveys to them the futility of ship and he indirectly gets many messages across so that they would think
And this is a technique that we must use that when someone comes to us asking about something, then we must seize the opportunity and also to try to them
especially Muslim professionals, people who are working in different workplaces people come to you asking about their teeth are asking about their health. We're asking about their hair. So when they're asking you shouldn't you also tell them about something, seize that opportunity. Use of RSM seizes his opportunity and he does Dawa.
And before he tells them the answer to their questions, he tells them a little bit about their religion just a little bit, just enough. And in very short address, he gets many messages across, he makes them think,
like, for example, if you think of it, if you go to a dentist,
your mouth is open, you cannot talk, right? There is no conversation that can go between you and the dentist or you and the dental hygienists, and who can talk
to the dentist. So if Allah has made you a dentist, if Allah has put you in that position, where you can talk and the other person has no choice but to listen, use that opportunity. Similarly, if you're a doctor, and you're sitting in your office, and people are coming to you and asking you, you can tell them these little things, if you can tell them what to eat, if you can tell them to exercise, if you can talk to them about the weather, you can certainly talk them about this as well. And this is how the religion spreads.
We think the way of doing garwa is, you know, holding certain events, giving a book to someone to read. Yes, that is also one way. But a more effective way is this way, then when people come to you, you talk to them.
Similarly, if a person is a hairdresser, you do people's hair, you got them, you color them, etc, etc. They're coming to you, there's constantly conversation going on between you and them, talk to them at this point,
give Dawa to them. And if you feel that you're unable to talk, then at least you can put some nice brochures or pamphlets were in the waiting room. You can give them something to read, generally, when you go to a hairdresser, what do they give you in your hand, a magazine to look at, which is filled with heroin.
Literally every other page is something that shows the router which you should not be looking at. And instead of this point, if Allah has put you in that position where somebody is coming to you to fulfill their need, you seize that opportunity and do their work to them at that point.
And this is an etiquette that we learn from use of a listener,
that sometimes it's not just with your words, but even with your body language, that when you approach someone in a nice way, you are confident you speak to them properly, you behave properly, then, you know they get relaxed that okay, although she's wearing a hijab, but she can speak English.
She's on a terrorist. And perhaps if you have a nice conversation with them, and at the end just before leaving, you can just give them a nice handout. But unfortunately, the thing is that we don't have many beautiful handouts.
We don't, if you go to any church, any prayer room that belongs to Christians, whether it's in the hospital, or it's in the mall, outside, you will see such beautiful, lovely handouts and brochures which you want to pick up and you want to read. But unfortunately, if you want to find something like that, which mentioned Islam very briefly, and accurately, your choices are very limited.
So it's your duty that you must make something like that.
If you look at it, he's not bombarding them with too much information. The what he says to them is not that heavy. It's in a very casual way that he's talking to them normal speech.
And he does not bombard them with too much information.
It is not used big words from a different language. These are all familiar words, he uses the word of bag which is known to them.
lords, they knew masters. They have this concept of someone who owns you.
So speak in the language of people so that they can relate with you.
If you look at the way he talks to them, he doesn't say that I have left the religion of you people.
What does he say I have left the religion of people who do *.
And then he doesn't say to them, that all disbelievers. What does he say to them? Oh, my two companions. Look at how welcoming his style is his manner of speeches.
Because when we say that, no, I am a Muslim and you are not a Muslim.
I am an Asian and you're not an Asian, then what happens automatically we put a barrier between
the two, isn't it? So talk, choose your words wisely and speak in a way that is more effective, that is welcoming, that is easy for the other person to listen to.
Then he says to them, then he finally tells them the interpretation.
If you look at it, his address is very short. It's
very concise and at the same time very comprehensive. But for example, if you pick up a brochure or pamphlet, sometimes it's like three pages long, even you yourself don't want to read a new economics and read it.
Think about it.
And it's something that is interesting, the way that he mentioned it to them,
to the point brief, clear, concise, yet comprehensive. And then he tells them about the interpretation of the dream
that he has Sahiba usage need all my two companions of the prison. He doesn't say Oh, lucky ones, or disbelievers. I'm a Hydra Kuma as for one of you do, meaning as for the interpretation of the dreams is concerned. Then as for one of you firesteel abou combo, then he will give drink to his master of wine, meaning he will offer wine to to his master just like he did before.
This is about who the southie the copier that very soon you will be taken out of the prison and you'll be reinstated. You'll go back to your work. You will resume your work and you will continue to serve the king is water for St. Rob Bahama. And over here the word common has been used because the king he would drink and obviously he was not a Muslim. So just because he's mentioned over here does not mean that kings can drink. Okay, because in our Deen we learned that kolomoisky in
every mosque is how every intoxicant is unlawful
what Amala Haru and as for the other for use level that he will be crucified useless on the reflector, Assad lamba
and soil sluggy is to crucify someone it is to hang someone so that he dies for that cooler. So it will eat what will eat a plate of the birds midlet see from his head because he dreamt that he is carrying bread on his head and birds are eating out of it. So he says that the other person he will be crucified and he will be left that until the birds vultures are going to eat out of his head
all the way through the matter has been decreed which matter ality fee that's the end the matter concerning which you all were asking you always seeking verdict that stuff the NFL newsletters fatter? Yeah, well the word fatter and fatter one is to seek a ruling concerning something and particularly a religious ruling concerning a problem.
So, the matter has been decreed What does it mean by the matter has been decreed meaning this is the interpretation of your dreams. And it has been so decreed by Allah this will definitely happen.
Remember, earlier we learned that once a dream has been interpreted, then however it has been interpreted, that will happen.
So use of our listener interprets their dreams and you tell them that this will happen. This is how Allah subhanaw taala has decreed.
But if you look at the way you serve Allah Sam tells him the interpretation.
He does not force them to accept the message before that.
In the previous is what do we learn? He does direct to them. He doesn't say okay, so are you going to become Muslim or not? If you become Muslim, then I will tell you the interpretation if you don't, no interpretation,
he does not force them. He does not compel them, he does not pressurize them. He does not say so are you ready to take the Shahada, like we do. We talk to a person once and we want them to take the Shahada immediately, and if they don't each other immediately, we feel as if they're bound to hellfire. And we are so bad at doing that. He leaves the matter to them. He lets them think because each person should use his mind and decide for himself.
And when he tells them the interpretation, he tells him in a very nice manner.
First of all, he does not specify the names.
He does not say so As for you, the cup where you are going to go back and as for you, the baker, you are going to be killed.
He does not specify the names. What does he say? As for one of you and as for the other?
He does not say oh, you lucky one. Congratulations, you will be freed very soon. And to the other Oh, you unfortunate one, you'll be killed and so bad that you'll be crucified and so bad that you will not be taken off until vultures eat out of your head. This is not a gruesome, evil description. It's not depressing, nor is it over exciting. In a very sober, professional manner. He tells them the interpretation of their dreams. And he's very, very careful. There is no discouragement. There is no ridicule. And there is no sense of you know, showing that I am so superior and I'm so great because generally if you ask someone about the
interpretation of your dream, they will show themselves to be very great. Someone who has a lot of authority that Oh, you this will happen to you and this will happen to you. Your son will go here and you will get married or this woman will die very soon. No, he's very gentle is very appropriate. He is very professional.
He does not pretend as if he is God.
He is very normal in the way that he speaks. You know,
our beloved Massoud, he said that when these two men said what they had to set to him, and use it to set out explain their dreams to them, they replied, We did not see anything at all. They said, No, no, we were only lying about that dream. We didn't see that dream.
Because it is said that when these two men, they entered the prison, they noticed that university interprets dreams. So they said, Okay, let's go try him. And this is why they went up to him and asked him the interpretation of their dreams. When he told them the interpretation, they said, Oh, no, we never had that dream. But use of artists and I'm sad to them.
Now, this will happen, this will definitely happen.
So what do we learn from this, that a person should not fabricate dreams?
A person should not lie about them.
And once the dream is interpreted, it happens as it has been interpreted because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the dream is tied to a bird's leg as long as it's not interpreted, if it is interpreted it becomes a reality.
So according to the interpretation of their dreams, this happened, that the man who had a dream that he was carrying bread,
and birds were eating out of it, he was punished. They said that after three days, he was killed. And exactly as use of an incident described the interpretation that is what happened because he was proven guilty because he had offered poisoned food to the king.
On the other hand, the copier he was reinstated after a few days and he went back to his work
so use a very sudden we'll call a little lady and he said to the one who meaning out of the two who dilemna he thought meaning use of our histogram thought that unknown edge and that he is going to be free. And remember the word one unknown, it gives a meaning of certainty. So use of RSM was certain that this man was going to be saved. Nigel is from the roof factories known Jean Well, from the word medjet. And now Jin is actually not a Jew. Okay? It's not a Jew, just as a word of Aryan is actually arare.
So he was certain that he was going to be saved the copier main humar from them too. He said to him, that was corny you mentioned me or in Arabic near your master, who was his master?
The king. He says that when you are freed, and when you get out of the prison when you go back to work, then mention me to your master mentioned as to how I have been imprisoned unjustly for an unspecified period and tell them as to who I am, so that at least I can be taken out of the prison if they don't want me in Egypt. Perhaps it was somewhere else. It's not fair that I am in the prison. Tell him at least about me that I have been in prison for an unspecified period of time.
For Ansel who, so he made him forget who made him forget a shade on the Shetland. shavon made this man forget the crop he mentioned into his master
shavon made him forget to mention use of his salon to his master.
He completely forgot. He never mentioned to the king about use of Ursula.
So then what happened? For levita so he remained meaning use of nslm remain fijne in the prison biller icynene some more years.
After that, for a few more years use of SLM remained. And the word bedarra is used for some a few several, according to some people, builder is used for a number that is between three and nine. And others say between five and nine.
Can you imagine he lived in the prison not for one year for two years, a minimum of three according to others and minimum of five, up to nine years. He stayed in the prison.
This idea has been understood in another way as well.
That for unser, who shaped on this pronoun who it refers to use of
that shavon made use of early slam forget the Corolla Biggie the mentioning of his Lord. He made use of an s&m forget that he should pray only to a loss
penalty, and that he should not depend on the safety. He should not depend on the king for his freedom.
He should rely completely on
on Allah subhanaw taala for coming out of the prison.
It is said that when you suffer he said I'm asked the socket and the socket was freed to compare he was freed and he was out of the prison. gibreel came to us
and he asked him who saved you from being killed? Use of Edison and replied Allah. Then he asked who brought you out of the well, he said Allah who brought you out of the house of Ozzy's missile. He said, Allah, who saved you from the fitna of his wife, Allah. So he said that the one who is going to bring you out of this prison is also Allah, you should not have asked that man.
Now, does this mean that we should not ask other people for help? When we are in a difficult situation?
Remember that principle that has an attitude of law, or
that the good deeds of those who are righteous, they are like shortcomings for who, for those who are much closer to a muscle
Do you understand
for an ordinary person to do something good, is a big deal.
But for a person whose rank is very high, for him to do that good, is something ordinary.
Similarly, for an ordinary person, to leave something that is important is not a big deal.
But for a person who is at a much higher level, if you leave that it's a big deal.
Like, for example, a small child, if he breaks a glass,
if he, you know, throws his toys on the floor, it's not a big deal. But if an adult just tosses the glass off the table, throws his books off the bookshelf, is that acceptable?
It's not acceptable.
Similarly, the rank of a prophet is much higher than normal people.
This is why when it's okay for other people to ask others for help, it is not okay for the Prophet of Allah to seek the help of people.
It is not befitting
it benefits him that he should only seek the help of Allah soprano.
But we can learn a lesson from this.
That when we are in problems, we try different ways to come out of them.
What do we do we talk to people we call hear we call their
when we're doing that, in a way, we're actually complaining to others about the loss of predator.
When we're discussing our problems with other people, we're asking them for help in a way What are we doing? We're complaining to them about Allah, that I'm making the wrong but nothing's happening. How can you help me?
Live Without example, you ask someone? What should I? Do? They tell you make sure you say yes, I am making the war. However, you also tell me what to do. What do you think I should do? This is what complaining about almost.
We should remember that if Allah is the one who has created us, He is the one who has taken us from one stage of life to the next, then he is the one who can take us out of the problems that we're in.
Because he is the one who brought us to them. So we should depend only on loss of time that
we should depend only on him when we are in difficulties.
Because remember that for every difficulty, a time is fixed, isn't it? For everything a time has been fixed.
A lot wanted him to stay in the prison for a specified time.
And no matter what he did to get out of the prison before that he could not come out.
Similarly, if we're going through a problem, and we want to come out of it, yes, we should try to solve the problem. Eric Dyer, Campbell and then also rely upon almost a printer.
However, it does not mean that we get lost in the means that we're adopting. And we forget about the fact that Allah has set a time for it.
Because sometimes if we try one option, it doesn't work out. We try another option. It doesn't work out what happens we'll become very frustrated.
We stop even making the
what is the right behavior, when we're going through problems. Try make attempts to get out of it. But don't forget that there is a fixed time for everything.
If it's being delayed,
if it's being delayed, it's not happening. They're not there is a reason behind that.
Despite the fact that you're putting in effort, things don't seem to progress. There is a reason behind that. It's your test. Allah has put you in that test and you will
I come out of it until Allah wills.
So who should you go to?
Unless a penalty asked him for help stop relying on other people.
But generally what happens in these situations
we're making there are still there seems to be no getting out of that problem. We begin thinking, am I cursed?
There's a lion, listen to me. Maybe Allah is very upset with me. Maybe I've done something very wrong. Maybe my Salah has already been accepted, maybe all my goodies are going to waste. This is from shaitaan when he makes us think negatively.
So in problems, never despair at the mercy of Allah know that for everything there is a fixed time
use of our SLM was supposed to stay in the prison for a fixed time
for better icynene and Alo wanted him to stay in the prison until then,
because if he was to come out of it any sooner,
then the ground was not prepared for him.
The things were not ready for him.
He had to come out at the time when things were ready for him
because of loss of final data had a particular position for him.
And that he could not achieve until he stayed in the prison for all those years. And he came out at the right time.
And how did he come out with another dream, a dream of
and inshallah we'll learn about that. In the next session. We see that there's a lot of dreams in the story. That he said he saw himself as a dream first. Then the prisoners they have dreams. And the king he has a dream.
mean, not beaten, beaten, we

Nice to meet

Hey bc genie

What did you learn one thing.
Sometimes we want something really badly if we don't use the correct means we can completely lose it.
Like for example those women that desired use of medicine, they didn't use the way that was appropriate at all. And then use of religion I was completely out of the picture.
Exactly. He says Yusuf Ali Salaam in the Dawa, that he does act on se lash Karunakaran, se layer Nemo. Although all the people in that place, were not up on the heap, but still uses the word actor majority so that it shows to the prisoners that there is room for them to do sugar. They can also learn about it, they can also do something. He doesn't close the doors for them by using the word actor
