human energy investment.
We'll begin from number 69.
So your Cobra Sam, he let the sun go, and he sent Binyamin with them.
Now what happened? When I met the Hollywood, Lucifer, when they entered upon use of insulin, when the use of they came in his presence? What did he do? Our la he who he took his brother to himself, his brother meaning his full brother, Vinnie me. The rest of them were who his half brothers. Vinnie amin was his full brother. This is why he is described as a hug.
The word our is from Ruth actress Hamza Wailea. And
oh Yun Oui, Yun is to descend it is to take shelter somewhere. And our Ella is to come close to someone it is to join someone with something. So our la he, he brought close to himself his brother, meaning he hugged him.
Our la he, he brought him close to himself into his arms, meaning he hugged him. Just imagine somebody meets her brother after so many years. And the last time he saw a video mean, Vinny amin was an infant, he was a little baby. So when he saw him, he immediately hooked him. Others have said that our la What this means is that he housed him, he accommodated him near himself. He made him sit near himself.
Because you can imagine all of the people were there, but he had Binyamin sit next to him.
And Allah He said, as if he's whispering to him, that in me a hooker. Indeed, truly It is me your brother.
In me Indeed, I and I am the same person truly. I I am a hookah. I'm your brother, meaning I'm your brother Yousef.
And he doesn't tell him his sad story. What does he say? further Tabitha is, don't dongri v McIndoe yarn balloon because of what they have been doing. Don't be sad about it.
Just think of this. Finally you meet someone who is sincere to you, who loves you, and you love them. And you have spent the past few years have passed many years in great misery in a lot of difficulty.
What's the first thing that's going to come out of your mouth? Do you know what happened to me? Do you know what they did with me, I have so much to tell you. Just imagine you're meeting someone after so many years, you have so much to tell them. So many stories, so many things. But what use of it Sam says, Don't be sad about what they have been doing for that of this data is from the real vectors that Hamza seen, and both says to be miserable, that there is don't be miserable, don't be disheartened. Don't be distressed, because of what they have been doing.
Because of what who has been doing
the brothers, meaning what they did to me, and what they did to our father, and what they did to you forget about it. So he told him as to who he was. And at the same time, you also told him not to be sad.
This is the high level of patience of use of ready center. He was so patient that even when he meets his brother, he doesn't tell you about anything negative. He tells him something positive, don't be sad. Forget about it. Forget about whatever happened in the past. Why is it that we suffer from grief and sadness? Think about it. Why do we become sad? Why do we feel sad, because of what other people have said, because of how they have been towards us because of their behavior.
Because of their actions because of their treatment.
And we don't forget their words, we don't forget their behavior. We don't forget their treatment. And we remain sad, we remain anxious, we remain worried, and we never enjoy the blessings that we have.
So what's the solution? That if someone has been wrong towards us, we must overlook their ways, their words, only for the sake of a loss.
That Oh Allah, you know what they have done? You know what they have said, and you put me in the situation, there is some wisdom behind it.
I have had a great learning experience through this. You put me in this situation for a reason.
For example, if a girl gets married and goes into a house, where people are not treating her that well at all. And the first time that she meets her mother, she just breaks up crying.
If she pitches herself, what's going to happen? What is that going to lead to? It's going to make her feel very sad. It's going to make her feel very aggrieved. And it's going to make her talk about negative experiences.
But if she takes that
The entire time as a learning experience, then what's going to happen? What's going to happen, she's going to be positive. She's going to talk about positive things.
You don't want to share the bad that has happened. It is natural, you want to share it with your loved ones. But if you forget about whatever has happened, if you overlook it only for the sake of Allah, that Allah you put me in this situation, I have accepted it because of you. And you reward me for my patience, you give me reward. And you guide me through this.
When a person behaves this way, then Allah subhanaw taala gives himself because remember the Hadees that whoever tries to be patient, a lot makes him patient.
A lot gives him suffer. But if we don't even try to be patient, and what's going to happen, we're not going to be patient.
So he tells him letter with SB Macedonia Ramadan, just forget about what they have been doing. Don't be sad, overlook it, forget about it, for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. And Allah will give you peace at heart just as he has given it to me.
We see the use of our listener, he is very, very positive.
No matter what he has gone through in life in every situation, he has channelized everything positively. He has channelized his negative energy into what positive actions. And this is what has made him so productive, so beneficial for the people.
Even in the prison, he was a Martian. And when he came out of that he didn't go back home, he stayed in order to benefit the rest of the people. And this is only when a person does not feel pity on himself. When a person accepts the difficulties that come his way, when a person does not remain in his grief and in his sorrow, he overlooks what other people have done for the sake of Allah that Oh, look, you reward me for this. You give me patience for this.
And he tells his brother to do the same. falletta is Bhima, can we?
What do we think generally,
that if we're going through a problem, if we're feeling bad, we have to vent it out. We have to share it with someone.
That's what is encouraged that you share. But the fact is that when you share what you're going through what's going to happen? It's going to worsen your wounds, you know that you're going to repeat that same story again, it's going to bring tears to your eyes again, it's going to make you feel sad. Again, it's going to make you depressed again.
It's not going to solve the problem.
What's the solution? Keep it boiling inside so that one day you erupt like a volcano.
Even that is not the solution. The solution is in turning to Allah,
that Oh Allah, you give me some
oma, you give me reward. You teach me what to do, because I am helpless over here.
This is a solution.
Because we cannot change the people can we change the people?
Sometimes the situation is also beyond our control. If there's a particular person, and you're living with them, there is no other choice but to live with them. You cannot cut off your relationship with them. And Allah has given them life. Allah has given you life, neither of you are dying. So you are meant to live with one another. for however long Allah will do, then you cannot change the situation. It's beyond your ability.
Then should you burn up inside? Should you be very upset and frustrated inside? No. Turn to Allah again and again. Your cleverness and I'm What did he do? He turned to Allah every moment. Use a friend he said I was well he turned to Allah at every moment. This is what we need to do. This is how we need to channelize the emotions that come into our heart. Because if we remain sad, that's not productive. If we keep it boiling inside our hearts, even that's not productive.
If we show it, that's definitely not productive. So what's the solution?
Turning to a loss of habitat.
So he tells him let up that is we make no money. Just forget about it.
For them nyjah has a home visa has he so when he had furnish them with their supplies,
notice our use of our SLM he furnished his supplies earlier as well. Anyone again, he is preparing their supplies. It is as though he is doing it himself. He was the minister he was the chief he was the in charge. But look at how he is doing everything himself. What does it show to us? That the leader the one in charge, is Who
Who is he in reality.
The in charge the leader, what is his role just to sit up on his throne on his chair and do nothing.
To lead with action, say you don't tell me how to home. The leader of the people is their servant, the one who leads people in something. He is actually the servant of people with regard to that matter.
And we see this in use of renesola tjahaja, whom he is preparing for them, he could have ordered his servants. The so many if at the end, he was the chief, he was a minister. But he didn't do that. He did it himself. He made the workers work but at the same time, he was working himself.
Jana he put, so this time when all of the brothers were leaving, including money, I mean, what did he do? He put a Sequoia to the drinking bowl or the measuring bowl field Actually, he in the saddlebag of his brother,
meaning of who beneath me, and he didn't tell me near me.
A supplier is literally letter seen coffee and supplier is basically used for a drinking cup a drinking ball.
Remember, Sofia, what does it mean to water?
So supplier is a tool is a bowl from which you drink.
So he put that into the bag of his brother? Whose idea was this?
It was his own or it belonged to the king.
Allahu Allah. inshallah, when we read these ideas together, I'll tell you the different opinions. Some of them before they could have gone. What happened. Then, uh, he announced, who announced most of the known and announcer and announcer he announced he proclaimed that a to her or alario the caravan in Nicola Sarah goon indeed you all are surely thieves. You're thieves you've committed theft.
What theft of the ball. So then he announced that all caravan you all are thieves. Ellery is from the Ruth letters I nelda. And Ellery is basically used for a donkey or a camel.
And in particular, that donkey or that camel which is used for carrying loads, which is used for transporting food, transporting green.
So you will read meaning the people have their eat the caravan, addressing who the brothers of use of various Salah that you are signing on, you are thieves, you've committed theft.
It is said that
because Vinnie, I mean he was leaving us over here, Sam wanted to surprise him with a gift.
And what did he do, he placed the drinking cup in his bag, so that when Binyamin would go home, and when he would open up his bag, he would find that drinking cup
just as earlier when the brothers of use of our Hassan were going What did he do?
He put the bizarre.
So, just as when he put the guitar they came back perhaps he would come back again, he would get to see him again, this is one opinion.
And this is via this drinking cup is a multipurpose cup, meaning it is used for measuring and it can also be used for drinking. So actually it belonged to the kink that actually belonged to to the kink. And it was used to measure out the green which was sold to the people. So whose custody was it in
use of red hustler? Just as if you're working in an office, they provide you with a computer with a notepad with some stationery with some office furniture, although it belongs to the company, but it is in your custody it is in your possession. Now imagine a CEO of a company
he has the choice to throw that furniture and make it as the expense of that company, he has a choice to give it away and make it as expensive that company he can replace it he has that choice he has at Liberty.
So use of Edison was also at that position where he had the liberty to do whatever he wanted with that stuff and he could have replaced it easily. So this was not tapped on the part of use of our listener. Remember that. So how can this may have been announced?
This may have been when he realized that that cup was missing. He out of panic he made this announcement. Out of panic he made this announcement that all people who have committed a theft. Now when they made this announcement user or listener could not possibly say anything. Right? Because if he said anything Binyam even didn't know. And the people would wonder why did he put it in his bag, they'll become suspicious that what is between use of
This man. So use of Arsenal was also in such an awkward position in which he could not say anything. And as we will see, in the following, I had the conversation between the brothers and the Merlin. It happened so quickly that he couldn't really do anything at that point. Because you may wonder at this point user friendly Sam could have come up and he could have stopped them, or they No, no, don't say that. They did not commit any theft, I put it in that bag. This was supposed to be surprised. And if he did anything, the whole plan would collapse. And it happened very quickly before he could take any step.
This is one opinion, I would explain this incident to you according to this opinion. And then I will mention to you another opinion, all of this had, meaning the brothers of use of penicillin. They said we'll uncover new and they advanced they came forward from the root letters of Bella. They approach they came forward because they were on their way out. So now they returned. And they're approaching
that man That afternoon, what is it that you all are missing? definitely learn from the root letters of that fact. And fact is to lose something do not find something
to have it missing. So what is it that you have lost? Because they did not steal anything? So they're asking what is it that you have lost?
How do they set the people have used for insulin they said nothing to do? We are missing? swear I'll Maliki the measuring bowl of the king.
The word su R is from the root letters. SOT well I
and suar is basically a container that is used for measuring grain or measuring water.
So it's a measuring cup. Earlier, what where did we learn silica? Now what are we learning so far? And because of this, there are two opinions. Some say that suar and sakarya are the same.
Because this cup is a multipurpose cup, you can drink from it. You can measure with it.
Like for example, there are some beakers there are some jugs in which there are measuring marks. But you can also use them just to serve water, you're not necessarily measuring. You can also use it for serving juice for serving water. Just because it has a marks does not mean it's only for one purpose. It's a multipurpose cup.
So similarly this was also a multi purpose guy.
And if you think of it, that supplier,
even if it was the supplier of use of Ernestina, even if he used it himself even if it was his own personal cup wasn't it royal? Wasn't it something that belonged to the government. So Swan Maliki we have lost we are missing the measuring bowl of the king.
Others have said that suar and Sequoia are different. They're different.
They were looking for those who are because coincidentally even that had been lost at this point. Use of Redis and I did not know about it.
He put the supplier and by chance the slot went missing.
At the same time, you understand he put the supplier to surprise his brother but coincidentally at the same time the swap of the king was also lost. So these people are actually looking for the swap of the king. They're not looking for the supplier
when demand and they say that for the one who jack he came with it is going to be hemlo buried a camel load the camera load of what food supplies what enemies are aim and I am avec responsible one who guarantees the one who was the oven. He said that I guarantee the reward of a camera low to the one who can bring the suar the measuring cup the measuring bowl of the kink.
So then what happened?
How do they set the brothers of use of RSM they said de la he by Allah
that is for person and it's only used With the name of Allah. You don't use it with any other word any other name. In fact you don't even use this with any other name of Allah. You only use it with this module Allah, Allah. You don't say Top Ramen? No. It's only tala.
So the second law he Lakota I live them certainly you all know that magic. Now we have not come over here. Linux either fill up so that we make Poseidon the earth.
We have not come here to commit theft. We have not come here to commit injustice. What are canessa routine and we're not at all thieves. You know that already? Why did the brothers have use of or they said I'm say this that you know that already? Because they had come back with the bar and they had returned it. Remember when they were leaving the place?
First time use it for this and then place $1 in their bags.
So they came back and they return that money. So they said we don't have a reputation of thieves. If we were to commit theft, we would have kept the dollar with us. But we came back and return that money to you think we would take a cup? What is a cup compared to all that money?
You know that we don't have a reputation of thieves. Although they said Who? The mervin and his companions, the use of RSM is just watching.
This is a conversation going on between who we brothers and the other.
So they said format is that Oh, so what should be his recompense? Who's recompense the recompense of the thief in kuntum, Caribbean, if you're liars, if you're liars, in that you say that you have not committed theft, whereas in reality, you have committed theft. And if we find that cup with you, then how should we punish the one who is guilty?
How should we punish the one who has committed theft? What do you say?
So, all of this said, just out who his recompense who's recompense
The one who commits theft. Now Who said this? The brother said this, they reply, that the recompense of the one man who would you that it was found fee largely in his travel bag, meaning the cup is found in his travel bag. In other words, he has committed theft, his recompense is going to be for who so he is just that it's recompense,
meaning he himself is going to be the recompense of that storage object. What does it mean by this?
In the law of your Cobra, hustler in the law of your corporatism in the [???]tier, that he was given, which was the same Sharia that Ibrahim or Hassan had brought, they were following the Sharia pro humanism. The punishment for a teef was that he would be enslaved for one year.
He would be kept as a slave, by who, by the one whose property he had stolen. What's the Sharia know? What's the law now that the hand will be cut off? Back then what was the law that whoever has committed theft will be enslaved for one year by who? By the one whose property he had stolen, so the safeguard is that he himself is going to be its recompense, because it cannot do this lightly. This is how we recompense the wrongdoers meaning for theft. This is how we punish the people who have committed theft.
Now, because they were so confident that they hadn't committed theft, they said Go ahead, search our bags, you won't find it. And if you find it, okay, the person who has committed theft, he will be punished how that he will be enslaved by you people for an entire year. We agree to this.
Now, technically, if you think of it, if they had committed theft, they should have been treated according to which law,
the local law, Egyptian law, but the way that this conversation took place, what was agreed that it will be according to the law of yakou bridezilla. ebrahimian Anissa. So this is what was decided
further. So then he began, who began now use of read Islam began,
he began searching the ovary at him with their bags, whose bags the bags of the brothers, he began searching the bags of their brothers
Avila before we are in the bag of his brother. So he began searching their bags first, before he searched the bag of who, beneath me.
Why did he do that? hoping that,
you know, when it's not found in eight bags, and it's not found in nine bags, perhaps more than in the rest of the crew, they would give up.
So he started with them. And then what happened? They finally reach the bag of his brother.
And obviously he had to search through that bag as well. And when he searched through that bag, what happened? Some man is the ledger he brought it out. He extracted it. What the supplier? mean? Where is he from the back of his brother.
Now, think about it. The Muslim and the rest of the people. What were they searching for? According to one opinion, they were searching for this where they were not searching for the supplier.
What were they searching for? The swab the measuring bowl, not the drinking cup.
But when they found the drinking cup, now it was another case that came up. So they ignore the suar and now they're dealing with the supplier that if you have committed theft of the supplier
Then you also have this war.
If a person is found guilty of committing one thing wrong, then he is blamed for everything.
So similarly the same thing happened over here.
And if we take the second opinion that the fire squad was the same, and out of panic, the mother announced and use of Redis, I was in an awkward position, he couldn't say anything. So when he brought it out, it was as though Binyamin had committed theft. So Allah subhanaw taala seska, delicate kitten early use of like that we made a plan for use of peninsula.
we plotted for use of what plot What plan
that now his brother was going to stay in Egypt for an entire year. This was a plan of a lot. Use of artists Anam did not plan that he just wanted to give a gift to his brother simple. And by chance, coincidentally, the swap of the money got lost at the same time. Or the mother didn't realize that use of it Salaam had put it in the back of his brother and he just made this announcement. And it happened so quickly, that he couldn't even say anything. And now his brother was proven as someone who had committed theft, and the result of that would be that he would stay in Egypt. This was the plan of law. This was not the plan of use of Ursula kundalika cadenabbia use of because Mecca it was
not for him Leah who said that he would take a ha who has brother, feeding al Maliki in the law of the king.
Meaning according to the law of the king of Egypt, the brother of use of Renaissance could not stay in Egypt. He could not stay in Egypt because he was a foreigner. And on top of that, if he was to be punished for theft, what was the punishment according to that law? According to Egyptian are the punishment was beaten, and a penalty of twice the value of the stolen item.
That was the law of the land.
But the way the conversation happened, the way that it unrolled the way that it unfolded, it was decided that the punishment will be given according to the Abrahamic law.
So Makana Leah had a horrible feeling and Maliki Illa Anisha. Allah accepted a Lockwood will not follow the law Jatin we raised in ranks Manisha whoever we will, will fall accordingly there linear l mineralium. And above every knowledgeable is one who knows, one who knows more. One who knows everything. Over here loss of parallel data says enough our knowledge as we elevate the ranks ranks of what have knowledge of high position of whomsoever that we will,
like for example, the rank of use of our listener was elevated, why because he was given the knowledge that we will hide this And besides that, he was given other knowledge as well.
So, this is how we raise the ranks of people will fall halco linear in early and above every possessor of knowledge is one who knows more
use of ready salon, although he had the knowledge of the riddle of Hades, he had insight. He had farsightedness, but he could never have imagined that his placing the cup in the bag of his brother would result in this, although he had knowledge, but his knowledge did not have the knowledge of the future.
Who has that knowledge, only a loss of data. So what I mentioned to you was one opinion, which is that this was coincidental.
This was coincidental
that use of Edison had put the cup in the back of his brother,
as a surprise to give that to him.
And this was not the afternoon Spark, as we discussed earlier. But by chance, what happened, the dean announced and the way that that conversation unfolded, it was decided that the brother would be kept as a slave in Egypt for an entire year. Others say that this was deliberate. This was actually a plan that use of Islam had made. And what was that plan? That use of red s&m he put the supplier in the back of his brother
And it said that he even informed his brother that he was going to do that so that he should remain calm. But the rest of the brothers had no idea. This was all deliberate.
And this whole plan, this whole thing that happened in announcing in this conversation taking place and everything, this was all pre planned from before
us if I said I had planned all of this from before, then why does Allah subhanaw taala say that kinetico could not use of this is how we planned for user
because use of our s&m didn't make that plan. But could he really executed exactly as you planned it? No.
Cobra incident but ultimately the plan. But was that executed as planned? No. psychedelica Kidner use of what this shows is that he made the plan but Allah subhanaw taala made it happen.
You understand? He had made the plan but Allah made it happen, especially that conversation,
especially the conversation because that conversation was the main thing which resulted in deciding that the punishment would be given according to Hebrew law, according to the law of the brothers, and not the law of Egypt.
psychedelica Kadena elusive.
Now there is a big lesson in this for us. What is that lesson?
The end of the ayah that will follow Coco Lydia illman. Writing
above every knowledgeable person is one who knows much more.
Because sometimes things happen. And apparently, they seem to be very unfair. And they happen very quickly. Just look at how the scene completely changed use of Ferguson, I was giving a gift and how it turned into his brother coming about as a criminal as a thief. Look at how things completely turned around. Similarly, things happen, which apparently seem very unfair. And we seem to be getting blamed for something that we have not done.
Submit early, sometimes that happens, we don't mean to do something. We say something, we don't mean that at all. But the other person understands completely differently. There's a misunderstanding.
There is a misinterpretation.
And because of that, what you intended does not happen. You want to make peace with someone, you say good words to them, and they think you're mocking them. It happens, right? You intend something different, and it comes about very differently. You get blamed for something that you never intended, you get accused for something that you never did. It happens in life. But remember, there is the wisdom of Allah behind it.
There is the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala behind it, there is a reason behind it. Like over here, Allah subhanaw taala wanted to bestow a favor on who use of medicine and that he would have his brother for the entire year. Just imagine how much he was missing his family. But Allah made this happen. And this way, Vinnie amin was to stay in Egypt, and use of Redis. And I would get to see him every single day. Up until now things are happening against Yusuf Ali Salaam, now everything is happening in his favor.
So what do we need to do in times where we feel that everything is against us? Or things are unfair? This is injustice, it does not make sense. What do we need to do?
We need to do submit, and we need to accept the decision of Allah.
Like, for example, recently, there have been so many natural disasters, earthquakes, and floods, and tsunamis so on and so forth. And 1000s and 1000s of people have died. 1000s of businesses have collapsed. 1000s of livelihoods have been ruined.
The work that people did for so long, all of it has been completely destroyed. And sometimes you may wonder that, why is this happening?
What crime did those innocent children commit? What did they do after all that they have to suffer?
by for example, you heard about the tsunami that just happened? There were schools over there, there were children over there. And we're very sure that even they're the ones who suffered. So you wonder What crime did they commit.
Now we are in a position where our knowledge is very, very limited. Allah subhanaw taala has a much bigger plan. His knowledge is more encompassing.
We object we pass comments based on our limited knowledge.
And Allah subhanaw taala has another plan, a low Arnhem, perhaps those children who have died, Allah subhanaw taala, has taken them to paradise. Allah has a much better plan for them.
But because our knowledge is limited, we begin to object we begin to criticize, we begin to say this is not fair. So what's the lesson in this for us that no matter what happens, we must understand that there is a wisdom of a law behind it.
And we have to remove the sentence from our lives. This is not fair. Because it may seem as unfair, but this is completely fair. And just in the sight of Allah.
Like, for example, our knowledge is very limited compared to the knowledge of a loss of predator.
And just to understand this concept, think of it as, for example, the CEO of a multinational, multi billion company.
He makes a decision and he wants to do something. There comes a child, somewhere from Africa somewhere from India, and he says, Why are you doing this? Are you going to give any heed to what the child is saying? No.
Are you going to pay any attention to it? No, because that child has no idea. First of all, he's a child. Second, he does not know anything. Thirdly, he doesn't have the experience. He doesn't know why that's always doing that. You're not going to pay any attention to what that child is saying. Similarly, what is our knowledge compared to the knowledge of a law? It's nothing, then who are we to say, This is not fair? Who are we to say, why is this happening? We must not object at the decisions of law. And we must understand that everything that happens, there is a reason behind it. Because Allah subhanaw taala is planning something he is making something happen.
The story of credit, and Mozart is unaware that boy was killed. And we saw this and I said, Why.
And there was a wisdom behind that similarity, where the ship of the four people that was destroyed, there was a reason behind that. There is a reason behind everything that happens over here as well. If we take the first opinion that this was a complete coincidence, Yusuf Islam did not wish to present his brothers as thieves, especially his full brother Binney, I mean, he would never have wanted that.
But this was necessary for something else to happen, which was for his entire family, to get back together. And this could only happen if they accepted the decree of Allah subhanaw taala. Similarly, the lesson in this for us is that we also need to accept the decree of Allah. We cannot object because our knowledge is limited, and we must remember that we'll focus on quality relevant early, above every possessor of knowledge is who are the who is early, Allah subhanaw taala. And secondly, this has been understood in another way, that every person who has knowledge, there is someone else who has more knowledge than him. And there is someone else who has more knowledge than that person,
until Allah subhanaw taala. above him, there is no one else who knows more. So we should remember our position we should remember our rank where we stand in the pyramid, that we're all the way down our knowledge is nothing compared to the knowledge of a loss of nothing at all. So if Allah makes something happen, we should accept it. We should not object. We should ask for his mercy. We should ask for his guidance. Instead of getting angry and frustrated.
