Yusuf 58-87 Word Analysis and Tafsir 65-67
What a man and when further who they opened matara, whom their baggage when the brothers of use of Ernestina when finally they opened up their baggage. What do you do they found build Arthur whom their merchandise. Over here we read the word matar. Earlier, we read the word for their bags, rehab. And rehab, remember is a case or a box or a bag or anything in which luggage is kept.
And matar is general.
Rehab is a bag. But methodic can apply to like, for example, bags, as well as everything else that they had on their camels.
Like, for example, they had a bag that put it on the saddle. And then on top of the saddle, they had put a rope, they had tied it with the rope.
So matar is everything that they had with them. So basically, when they unpacked everything,
when they open up all of that baggage, what do you do they found below or to whom their merchandise would that either it had been returned to them, they discovered that their money had been returned to them.
So what did they do? Connor? They said, Yeah, Urbana, or our father, manually. What more do we want? What else can we desire? Look, how he this build our our tuna, our merchandise, that Elena, it has been returned to us.
In other words, they're saying that what more could we want? What more could we desire? What more could we ask of their diseases, generosity of that ministers generosity. He has been so generous to us that he has returned our money to us. So we should definitely go back and get more food manually. What more could we ask what more can we expect? Look, we should definitely go back and we should get more food from there.
Secondly, this has been understood as manopoly, naturally from the root belanja, same route. And bhullar is to desire but Bali is to
rebel to cross limits. So manopoly mag gives meaning of lot. The second meaning that menabilly we did not cross our limits. We did not cross our limits in what in praise of the minister and his generosity. This is a proof of what we said about him.
Because when they came back, they didn't just tell their father about the fact that he should send Binyamin with them the next time. But they also mentioned to him about how generous that minister was,
which is why they should definitely go back there again. They just think about it, their father could have said to them, if he really wants Binyamin to come. And if he doesn't come, he's not going to give anything, don't go over there go somewhere else. Fine. Like for example, if you go to a store and they set a condition for you, what do you say? I don't want to fulfill this condition. I'll just go somewhere else. Their father could have said that. So what did they do? They began praising the minister meaning they began praising use of renesola that he was really good to us. He was very generous to us. And when this money was discovered, they're saying, look, our Father, we
have not been wrong in praising him. What does this show this is a proof of his generosity. This is a proof of his kind treatment. So we should definitely go back to him and not anywhere else. And when we go back to him when a meal and we will obtain supplies, for who Atlanta for our families, for all of our families, the middle from the roof letters meme era, and the word made is to bring food for one's family.
What is it, it is to bring food for who for one's family. And it is also said that made is such food that is brought and stored for future use. Like for example, people will go and buy something in bulk. Like for example to go to wholesale places and they'll buy stuff in bulk. And they will store it in the garage, they will store it in their basement. They will store it in their pantries and they will use it over a period of time
so that they don't have to go back again and again to buy the same stuff. So made is such food such grain that is bought for one's family, and it is stored. It is stored.
We might find this a bit strange. That why do you have to store it. Just go and buy it every time. But remember that at that time you couldn't buy food that grew only in the summer in winter.
If you wanted that food you would have to buy it in the summer to understand
If you buy it in the summer, you have to have enough for the entire season up until the next year. This is why people would buy in bulk and they would store.
And even today in some areas, people do that, like for example, grain wheat, where people eat wheat a lot, they buy it in bulk, and they have huge storage rooms in which they store the grain, so that they can use it over a period of time.
So in the middle of the night, we will obtain supplies for our families when I follow a Honda and we will guard our brother when his dad do and we will increase Kayla Berry, the measure of a camel, how that if he comes with us, we will get another camel load for who beneath me. Right now we have been given only according to our number. But if he comes to us, we will get one more and this data from the root letters say yeah, that from the words yada. And the word is actually notice that. So we will increase in a measure of a candle and then liquor that is Caronia seal, okay, a measure that is very easy, very easy for who very easy for the Egyptian minister to give, because of his generosity
are very easy for us to get if our brother comes with us.
So we see that over here out of happiness, they're telling their father
that we brought the food and we've also brought the merchandise It has also been returned to us. So let us go back we will go we will bring more food and we will bring another camera lower. And this will be very easy for us to obtain.
What did your Cobra Sam say? Cora he said learn or see the humor Come, I will never send him with you. Never at all will I send him with you
have that until Tony you all give me most of a firm promise. I will never send him with you until and unless you give me a firm promise, mean a law he from a law meaning in the name of Allah. Most of us is from the rat race. Well, Sal cough. And remember, this is used for a promise that has been made firm and strong how by swearing an oath, the word mishap is also from the same root.
So I will not let him go until you make a solemn oath.
You make a promise you swear In the name of Allah. That letter, Tony, that surely you will definitely come to me be here with him,
that you will definitely bring him back to me. I will not send him with you until you swear by a law that you will bring him back to me in accepting the situation where and that you help her become it is surrounded with you all.
What is the mean by this? You help me Can you help us on their newsletters? How well from the word hello, which is to surround
and you have a column that you all are surrounded
meaning you are surrounded with some difficulty with some obstruction
that you cannot overcome. You have no choice. It is beyond your ability and you cannot come back you cannot bring your brother back.
We see over here that your Hoover escena. Although he sets that as a condition, that you will definitely bring him back. And he makes him swear by Allah. But he also realizes the fact that at the end of the day, things are not in our hand.
When we make someone make a promise, what do we think that is if everything is in our control, that everything is within our control.
To serve requests, if you ever have to go through class, just make sure that you go from the back or something because when you go from the front then everybody gets distracted. So this is for everyone. Similarly, if you have to come towards the stage to get a tissue or something, make sure you avoid that go towards the washrooms go towards the back. Because when you come in the center of the class in the middle towards the front and it distracts everyone, okay, this is for everybody.
So, we see that your Cobra Sam, although he sets a condition, he makes some promise he makes some swear by Allah. But at the same time he realizes that things are beyond our control at some instances, because after all, we are human beings.
So he says he will definitely bring him back. Unless you all are surrounded, you have no other choice. For example, you are overpowered by some enemy, you are unable to rescue him you have been besieged or you die or he dies. Something happens preventing you from bringing him back.
fundament then when I tell who they gave him, most of whom their firm promise
Word By Allah, that definitely we will bring him back. Or he said, Yeah Cobra Hassan said, Allahu Allah is Allah upon man akula whatever we say he is a rookie, he is a trustee.
Meaning Allah is watching. Allah is a caretaker. He is a guardian of what we have said, What is between you and what is between me?
And then eventually he sent Vinnie, I mean with the rest of the brothers.
What do we learn in this
a very important lesson,
which is that jacobellis and he turns to Allah, at every moment.
He turns to Allah at every moment,
he does not rely only upon himself, he does not rely only upon his sons, he does not rely on his planning.
But who does he rely upon?
Allah subhanaw taala.
And at the same time, just because he relies upon Allah does not mean that he doesn't do anything else.
Like, for example, he doesn't ascend, Binyamin with them, saying, Allah will guard him. No, he makes them take a firm promise, a swear by Allah. And he warns them.
And he makes them feel bad about what they did in the past. And then he says, We trust upon Allah, we rely upon Him, He will only enable us to fulfill this promise.
And this is something very, very important. Because we go to extremes.
Either we say that do everything, make your own planning, execute everything yourself. And if something wrong happens, get frustrated with people blow up on them, don't take it as something from a loss of parental data, which is why many times what happens we ask someone to do something, if they're unable to do it, we get very, very upset. We forget the fact that maybe they were prevented, because some genuine reason which is beyond their control, which is only in the hands of a multiplanetary.
Or sometimes we go to another extreme. We don't make any plans. We don't do anything, we don't make the other person feel responsible. And we say Allah will do everything for me. Yes, he will do everything for you. But you also have to do something. Both must go together that weed as well as the vocal. What does that mean?
Planning and what does the vocal mean? relying upon a last parameter?
What color and he said
on one side he is relying upon Allah and on the other side, he is also taking precaution. He says yevgeniya All My Sons and vedika is actually bunny. Bunny. Yeah, is what bunny. And the noon has been dropped because of the Yamato column. So we translate this as bunny Yeah, meaning my son's.
So he says, All my sons are my children, leather, the Hulu do not enter. Mim babinda hidden from one door from one gate.
Meaning when you enter Egypt, don't enter together from one gate.
At that time, in that era, and also after that as well. walls were built around cities. Why?
So similarly, the city where use of artists was in Egypt, that city was also surrounded by walls.
And these walls obviously they had multiple gates, sometimes one sometimes more. But this city in particular it had multiple gates. So he tells them when you enter Egypt, when you enter that city don't enter from the same gate. Rather what the Hulu but you all should enter men of weapon from doors that are multifarious, that are different. Meaning to have you enter from the same gate three of you enter from another one, three of you from another one, etc etc. You should not walk into that city 11 Have you together No. But rather enter from different different gates.
Well not only and I cannot avail uncom from you when Allah He from Allah min shading from anything at all. Meaning I cannot save you from the plan of Allah. This is only my planning. I cannot protect you. I cannot make you self sufficient from the plan of Allah in hurco illa Allah The decision is only with Allah soprano tada whatever happens is in the hands of Allah
and Allah Ito culto upon him I have trusted where la familia de Vaca and moto Cologne and upon him should those people who rely rely meaning a loss of penalty is the only one whom you should rely upon.
No, why does he say to them that enter from different doors? What's the reason behind that?
several reasons I've been given.
For example, it has been said that you can imagine a group of young men, so many of them, they're entering together
in the form of a caravan. And these men, if you suffer, Hassan was so handsome, you can imagine the rest of his brothers are also very good looking. So he was concerned that if they enter together, people might feel intimidated, they might feel that these men are coming with some wrong intention. So he told them to enter from diverse from different gates, to avoid suspicion, so that people don't think negatively about them. They don't feel intimidated by them.
Just imagine, three, four cars entering together in the form of a group,
it might surprise you, it might take you by surprise, you may wonder, who are they? Why have they come? Even if you recognize one or two individuals, you might wonder who are the rest of them.
So this is why he told them.
Another reason that is given is to avoid evil eye to avoid envy.
What does it mean by that?
Because the brothers of us of our SNM, obviously, they were also very handsome.
They weren't all they were strong men. There were so many in number. And you can imagine if they're coming with their camels, riding their camels,
walking in that caravan, they must have looked very, very impressive. And when people enter like that, if somebody is looking at them with hassad, with envy, with jealousy, that can affect them with the evil eye. Now, what is the evil eye?
Remember that some people, they don't believe in it? They don't believe in it at all.
But we learn from the texts of the sooner that evil AI does have a reality. It does exist. What does it mean by it? Evil AI.
Basically, it is that when a person looks at something with a lot of admiration, sometimes with has said with jealousy,
somehow or the other lower limb, how, but with Allah will empower the gaze of someone can have an effect can have a physical effect, on the one whom he is looking at.
the gaze of someone can have a physical effect on the other.
It could be a person, it could be an object, it could be an animal, it could be a building, it could be a garden, anything. If you look at it with admiration, it's possible that that look, that gaze will give a physical effect.
Now some people, they have more of a tendency to affect others with the evil eye, and other people they don't.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said, and Lorraine, you have gone. And this is a hadith of Bokhari. So he's authentic, he said that the effect of the evil eye is effect. And I know how can
the effect of the evil eye is effect it is real, there is no doubt about it. Similarly, I shall lead on her. She reported. This is also reported in Bihari, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam ordered me or somebody else to do Rukia if there was danger from an evil eye,
meaning if you feel that somebody has been affected by the evil eye, then what should you do? Read.
Now what does it mean by Rokia?
When you recite certain Ayat of the Quran, or certain of God, certain daraz, which are authentic, which don't have any sugar in them, you recite them over the person who is suffering from an illness. And then they become a means of Shiva for him, by the will of Allah strengthen. And this is the reason why the morning and evening draws are so emphasized because they are a means of protection from a lot of evil.
Not just the evil eye, but other evil as well. Because human beings are very, very vulnerable,
very vulnerable. Anything can happen to us at any time. And we can suffer with great disasters at any moment, which could be fatal, which could cause a lot of harm to us, which could be very, very injurious. So this is a reason why the morning and evening with God have been emphasized. Because there are many things around us that can harm us. So what should we do we should protect ourselves from these things.
On cinema, she said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he once saw in her house, a girl
Whose face had a black spot on it.
And this black spot must have been very dark or vague or very obvious, and very strange.
So the prophet SAW the Lotus and and said she is under the effect of an evil eye. So treat her with Rukia. And sometimes it happens that, for example, a child is crying for no reason. You wonder the child has been fed, the diaper is dry. It's not that he's hurting anywhere. It's not that he's sick, but he's just crying constantly, and he cannot be comforted at all. It's not colic, it's not gas. It's nothing like that. Why is he crying? It's possible that someone was just staring at that child, wondering How cute are his cheeks? Were How cute are his eyes? And because of that constant gaze, perhaps out of his head, why isn't my child like that? Or look at this child is so beautiful. That
gaze has a physical effect on that child. And because of that the child is crying constantly, without a reason, and you cannot figure out what is wrong.
So there are some illnesses, for which you cannot find the reason you cannot diagnose the problem. And it's possible that it's a result of the evil eye.
So if you sense that someone has been affected by the evil eye, or you have been affected by the evil eye, then what should you do?
What should you do?
This talk bad about people, they look at my things, they look at my children.
I don't want them to look at my children. I want to take them anywhere again. This is what you should do. No, we learn the solution from the Quran and Sunnah.
And what is that? That first of all, we must recite or ask for protection, not just after we have been affected, or we think we have been affected, but even before, take your precaution protect yourselves from before.
And these are us for protection. They should be those doors which are completely free of ship.
Alvin Malik, he said that we used to recite certain utgarde in the pre Islamic era. So in the JDM, before the Prophet sort of on a certain game for cure.
So we asked the Messenger of Allah, what formula should we recite for that purpose? Meaning what what should we do?
He said, Let me hear what you're used to say. There is no harm in this. As long as you do not include check in it.
So you can recite the Accord, whether they are most known or not, as long as there is no shake in it.
What does that mean?
That you think that someone other than Allah can take that problem away from you.
Like, for example, in certain car, people are calling upon the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
or they're calling upon some other messenger, or Angel, or a saint, sometimes the gin sometimes the devil.
This is what schicke because only Allah subhanaw taala can alleviate that problem.
Only he can give Shiva only he can cure.
Similarly, in different cultures, like we see that in pre Islamic era, people had certain cards that they would recite.
In other cultures, people use different things to ward off the evil eye.
Like for example,
what do they do now?
Interesting that they take a string, they measure the height of the baby and they burn it Why?
How does it work if the evil eye
that if the string has been burnt, then that means that the evil eye has been burned?
Okay, what else
that they put a big.on the baby's face thinking that if this.is there, this is going to ward off the evil eye. This is what it is
that you think that that Dart is going to remove the evil eye it's going to ward it off, who warded off only. Similarly people wear this blue thing or they hang it up on the wall. For example, sometimes you walk into a store into an office and you're amazed. Even these people believe in the evil eye. I think it's more like a decoration now because it looks blue. It looks very beautiful. It's hanging up on the wall. Sometimes people will wearing sometimes it will wear it as a pendant.
Sometimes people wear a black thread. So a thread, something that is hung something that is worn a person thinks that if I wear it, this will ward off the evil light. This is what it is because you think that becomes a source. It's not the source.
For example bracelets, or some necklaces with certain types of stones in them. So what's the belief over here that this stone is going to ward off the internet
This is what should because what did the province of Ontario say? Anything without check is okay.
Anything without check is okay.
So, first of all we must resign or ask for protection. Secondly,
when we see something pleasing, when we see something beautiful, when we see something good, what should we say
Mashallah, as well as barakallahu Li. So for example, if you see a beautiful child instead of staring at the child and making the mother worried, or making the grandmother paranoid, what should you do? Say Mashallah Baraka lovick say some good words to ward off the evil eye.
And please don't stare, don't continue to look. Because remember that gaze can literally have a physical effect.
If somebody is constantly staring at you, how do you feel?
Just imagine somebody just looking at you constantly. How do you feel
If he This is something's on your hijab, maybe, maybe something's on your eye. Maybe you don't look right. And you begin to wonder you feel very nervous.
So the eyes can literally have a physical effect when you see someone beautiful when you see something beautiful. Don't stare. instead say something, say Baraka long v say Masha Allah La quwata 11
