We telling you the best of his stories, then, in this book, and the story of use of would come at once. And that's one unique things about the surah that

00:04:11--> 00:04:28

the story of this Prophet came fully in one song from the beginning to the end. If you notice the stories of other prophets were divided among the surahs in the Quran, except this one it's the full whole story from the beginning to the end.

00:04:29--> 00:04:31

And they said yeah, Rasul Allah

00:04:34--> 00:04:39

Dr. Salalah that Kiernan remind us then a lot revealed to them in the Quran. And Amir and the lady in Amman and Tasha Kuru bumili decree law that the Koran is the best reminder to the heart.

00:05:16--> 00:05:26

So every time if you notice that we're requesting something that the client comes to tell them what the asking what the seeking, what they're looking for, is actually in the

00:05:28--> 00:05:38

use of Allah His salam, and Nabeel sallallahu alayhi. wa sallam said, the use of our own mo or the use of our Omaha shopper on

Then we said Yasser Allah we asking you about the honorable people among the Arabs kind of unmad in in Arabic alumini, car, car, car config, Jehan, etc. Islam either fapy who the most honorable you before Islam all the same after Islam, when it comes to tribes and history, as long as they have understanding as long as they have a man on faith to heat.

00:07:09--> 00:08:03

This story of use of a setup and this aura to amazing story. It's really amazing sort of to read and people enjoyed listening to it a lot I know. And then unique things is that Dan was one of the top insert in the serata use for Surah Maryam Min metaphysica Hello Jana surah Yusuf and salt Maryam among the joys of the people of Paradise, where they will be reciting it or listening to it and enjoy reading it while they are internet. Well, I thought one said mahkota use of a Surah Surah Surah Yusuf mazoon illa Allah Islam, and there is no one in calamity or sadness will read and reflect upon surah Yusuf unless Allah will take away his sadness or her sadness. There's many

00:08:03--> 00:08:53

lessons, I will see how many I can mention and shared with you. And these will be just bullet points. Taking consideration the vast majority of you have read the sort of several times and very familiar work. And if not, please do so. Please go after this hope about and listen to it, read the translation of it, read it and read a simple explanation for it in one of the books of Tafseer sort of use of one of the lesson shows us that sort of use of it just a confirmation to us to what our Prophet Mohammed Salim came with is the same Lord that use of cold his people to worship is the same one that Mohammed Salim asked us to worship, the same set of manners and moralities that he

00:08:53--> 00:09:41

possessed in life. And he lived upon one of the same that you see it in prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life and his his city as well. I also learned from Surah Yusuf alayhi salam, that this came as an answer to a request from the Sahaba that they don't want to read and study. They want the story to hear. So sort of use of came to them as taraweeh and enough's as something to let them have another style, not just ordering or rules and regulations. No, it's a story for them to hear. And that's natural. That shows us that sometimes we need these breaks, we need to read we need to listen to stories, we need to relax and

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

honestly I don't need to emphasize so much because Mashallah The default is relaxing. And these days, any it's not like we are exhausting ourselves in the worship of laundry or on 24 seven, so you guys need a break. So I'll pass this quickly. Number three

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

also learn from the story of use of a setup that people tried to justify their bad deeds to amazing. People always tried to justify their mistakes. They said, the brothers effusive Allah use of a whole Habu illa abena. Amina, when

00:10:19--> 00:11:07

we're in an era houfy Bharati movie, they said, How come that he loves his music and his brother more than us, and we are full brother. And numbers were much larger than him and his brother, there are only two, and there is basically 11 of us. And how can he love him more? He is in clear error. Do you just want to psychologically to feel good about their envy, to feel good about their plan? So what they do? They said, We doing this because of our father, because he's ignorant, because he's favoring him? It's not because us are murderers? Not because us we're about to make a hazing crime by killing someone or throwing him in the well. No, the issue became the father, he's the problem is

00:11:07--> 00:11:18

not them of the problem. And what they're about to do is the problem. I learned from SelectUSA that sometimes crying and tears should not deceive us.

00:11:19--> 00:12:06

They came crying to the Father, screaming and so sad and look so affected by the emotionally so moved by, you know, the use of La Salaam. And if you look just the picture color without knowing the story, you might believe that the author is brothers. So many times you are deceived by the look. That's why we should not ever judge a book by its cover. We should not ever judge a person by the way he looked like or she looks like or because of the tears or because of that complaint or because of the loud voice. No, or because of it's a trend and hashtag or whatever. And social media non facility be the truth we have to be very careful what to believe and what not to believe. Also, I

00:12:06--> 00:12:15

learned from Surah Yusuf that people sometimes so good in changing faces and colors, you have

00:12:17--> 00:12:26

to mazing the brothers of use the telling his father their father, or son, Mariner, ohana. nektan, sinned with us our brothers.

00:12:27--> 00:12:45

Then when they discover the seal of the Prophet with his and his goods, they came to their father telling him what our brother was held. Our brother was capture no inhibit naka tsop

00:12:46--> 00:13:04

they said Your son is a thief, that just few verses earlier, he was our brother, because they need something. They want the father to agree to let him go. So when they want something from him, they were so nice. Oh, he's our brother is this. But when there is no need anymore, it's your son.

00:13:05--> 00:13:13

As if he is not related to them. People are so mean people are willing to switch people willing to flip very quickly.

00:13:14--> 00:13:15

Sometimes

00:13:17--> 00:13:31

the devil come in disguise. Some of the shavon came to Adam telling him and Hawa wakasa mahoma in Nila como la mina Nasir hain, I swear by God that I'm a sincere advisor to you Adam and Eve.

00:13:32--> 00:14:03

That's what this the came to use of Annie Sam's father, they came to their father and they said, in Allahu Allah now soon, in Allah who the half moon, we are so sincere, we are so protective, we will take care of him. Don't worry. You see people say that all the time. I love your community. We are on election season these days. You know, I love America. I love these values. I love this. I love this. Then when became an office they change

00:14:05--> 00:14:10

and fought we have to understand that. Basically, it takes more than just words to believe people.

00:14:12--> 00:14:37

I learned from Surah Yusuf that some people hate us, because of how good we are. Not because of the bad things in us. They hate us because of the good things that we have. The good values that we have, the good blessing that we have, because of your honesty, because of your success because of your discipline. Because of your

00:14:38--> 00:14:55

being truthful and honest, and a good husband and a good father. That's what made people hate you and dislike you. They hated us for his beauty for his manner. For his good quality and Kareem it means the one who possess excellence of quality

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

because people don't like to look ugly.

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

People don't like to look bad, and how people will look back if your next good person

00:15:08--> 00:15:16

in the major Hizbollah Konami knows how to say, a ship and doesn't want to go along to Hellfire, want more people to be with him?

00:15:17--> 00:15:17

I learn

00:15:18--> 00:15:20

from Seoul Joseph,

00:15:21--> 00:15:24

that we can protect those who we love over time.

00:15:25--> 00:15:40

Haven't seen someone so protective of his kids. They hear a story of his early salon you see how perfect the father he was. He doesn't want his son to leave his sight even for a picnic afternoon with his for his brothers, with his brothers.

00:15:41--> 00:15:55

And he's so worried even thinking about the unthinkable he's thinking about the wolf coming to snatch use of and to kill us. I mean, what will be the logically what will be the possibility for that?

00:15:56--> 00:16:01

It's very slim. You know, the the wolf will pick the shapes, why would he pick the boy.

00:16:03--> 00:16:09

But still, there is a possibility. That's why he was so worried. And he said I fear a half a year.

00:16:10--> 00:16:13

I'm afraid that the wolf will eat him.

00:16:14--> 00:17:02

That's why my brother and sisters, you might be very protective of your son if your daughter if your husband if your wife of your community. But I tell you can't always protect them. You need to know that the best protector is well low, higher on half ILA than a lot as the best protector. You need to make sure that you raise your children away, that they can take care of themselves if things happen to them. That became challenged. Use of Le Sam, when he was in a tough position. He knew how to take care of himself in the palace when you grow up because he was raised in good principles. It's very important that we invest in our children, teaching them the skills. One of the greatest

00:17:02--> 00:17:54

things that I heard from my brother shift command when he joined us, and the mustard is one of our religious leaders here that he said to me, Chef, what I think the youth need the most is a skills that will help them in life. Not only help them to see their ways in understanding the religion, but also in dealing with all live challenges. That's why I will say that take full advantage of all the programs and events that he organized for us to the master. It is so important to remember that you know no matter what you do, you always remember that Allah is the best protector. That's why Nabi sallallahu Sallam didn't take just the necessarily means to protect his children. He also add to

00:17:54--> 00:18:11

this one of the means are Rokia he makes up for his sons. And he used to make rokeya to his grandchildren, when he is in Medina. And when he travels, he used to say what he has seen, because the maxilla hit Tamati machinery mokara

00:18:12--> 00:18:26

or intercommunicating maxilla his term amakhala shavon. In a Neelam. Yeah, and I asked a lot by asking a lot, by your name by your word, to protect them from all evil. When he's in Medina, or when he's traveling. I learned

00:18:27--> 00:18:30

that sometimes the staff come from the back,

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

not from the front.

00:18:33--> 00:18:37

The one who hurts you the most, sometimes the closest person to you.

00:18:40--> 00:18:41

When we're wolf

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

was innocent.

00:18:45--> 00:18:47

We found that the brothers were guilty.

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

The animals were free from that sentence.

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

But there is something worse than animals.

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

Those who

00:18:59--> 00:19:05

take and basically lead and mislead people to their death.

00:19:06--> 00:19:19

It's a crime that unthinkable and I know we all follow the news and what's happened with a reporter recently in news about his death and murder,

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

where a person don't expect that that's piano

00:19:25--> 00:19:31

training, something hurts something evil than just the killing itself.

00:19:32--> 00:19:35

Today, we learn also from

00:19:36--> 00:19:43

sort of use of that not every good things that you have necessarily need to share it with people

00:19:44--> 00:19:52

because couldn't do the near met in my suit. Everyone was blessed. There is people envy him or her for their blessings.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

Sometimes, especially with the social media era, I feel we overdo that. You know, so

00:20:00--> 00:20:22

Sometimes we put all these fancy food $200 steaks, you know, $100 shoes and purses and, you know, expensive lover, expensive vacations, while people are watching you and looking at you, maybe in your Facebook or the Twitter feed, or Instagram, that you can have even 1% of what you have.

00:20:24--> 00:20:30

Be careful. I'm not saying that they are evil, but the least sometimes we hurt people's feelings.

00:20:32--> 00:20:33

That's why

00:20:34--> 00:20:50

we learn from this surah when you order them not to enter from one door, you enter from different doors, because he take that in consideration. And in a materialistic world today, these concepts don't register much with many people.

00:20:51--> 00:21:01

Also, it's interesting to know and to learn from separate uses that as people and righteousness or levels, also evilness, they are levels.

00:21:03--> 00:21:07

That's why one of them said, Carla no minimum latitude to use.

00:21:09--> 00:21:15

One of them said, Don't kill us, while houfy via better to just throw them in the well.

00:21:18--> 00:21:41

So even among the people who are bad, there are levels. And that's a lessons for us to know how to choose the lesser evil. How to Choose the person that I can, you know, what have a maybe a little bit of competition with that person. Just not because somebody is bad or bad are equal. That's not true. Not all sins are equal.

00:21:42--> 00:21:43

is not correct.

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

Sora juicer

00:21:46--> 00:22:10

also told me that sometimes people use the thing that you feel the most against you. So be careful who you tell your fear to. He was afraid of the wolf to eat his son. Guess what? They use his fear against him. They said that we went and we were distracted and left us of behind with our

00:22:11--> 00:22:24

goods and like in our tent, terracotta Lucifer in the metallic akella with the the wolf ATM. But also the story taught me there is no perfect crime.

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

There is no such thing called perfect crime. Every criminal will leave trace behind him.

00:22:33--> 00:22:42

They thought that is a perfect crime. There is 11 witnesses that he was eaten by that Wolf, and they broke the shirt

00:22:43--> 00:22:44

fold with blood.

00:22:45--> 00:23:09

But they forgot simple thing that this shirt was perfect. No tear. No, no. If he was eaten by the wolf, it will be terror. Who knew the wolf put his claws inside the shirt or buy the shirt, it will have holes in it. But nothing It was as perfect as he just took it off. They forgot to make it looks like real.

00:23:11--> 00:24:00

I also learned from that shirt, something interesting that we should not be superstitious of stuff. Some people have superstitions with numbers with images with things that happened to them. So for example, if I had a car, a Mazda car, and I got an accident, I would never buy a Mazda car again in my life. You know, that's, you know, I was wearing a pink shirt. That's what you get when you wear a pink shirt. You know, no pink shirts anymore. You know, some people have this. It's amazing. That same, you know shirt that carried the news of the death of use of La Sarah was the same shirt that carry the proof for his innocent with the wife of the king of Egypt when she accused him with

00:24:00--> 00:24:28

adultery that he tried to rape her was the same shirt. That was the reason for him for his father to get his side back. And to get the good news that Yusuf Ali Salaam is still alive. And he soon he will see the same shirt in three different incidents and the story to make you never ever be superstitious of things. Because things are not good or bad and themselves and itself. It's how you use it.

00:24:32--> 00:24:33

I also learned

00:24:34--> 00:24:35

that this life

00:24:37--> 00:24:39

is so cheap.

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

Really not worth it.

00:24:42--> 00:24:43

This life is amazing.

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

You know use of ericeira l Kareem Abdul Kareem Abdul Karim and okay. The Honorable the honorable the honorable person, the most honorable human being in the world. And maybe so someone said the one who been giving half of the beauty but could have

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

Shall we say men embossing the raw human mind, dude, what kind of human society

00:25:07--> 00:25:11

they sell him in few cheap coins.

00:25:12--> 00:25:17

That's the most honorable person was sold for very cheap price worth nothing.

00:25:20--> 00:25:27

That's why this live one day, you're the bird. And one day you're the statues.

00:25:29--> 00:25:29

If you know what I mean.

00:25:31--> 00:25:38

And you one day, you are the up there. One day they are the one there were a pigeon.

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

download their loads on

00:25:43--> 00:25:56

Sundays, you're in the most honorable place. And sometimes you're in a very place in a very bad situation. That's how life is. So don't get too upset. Don't get too excited.

00:25:58--> 00:26:00

Just balance yourself as you go on live.

00:26:01--> 00:26:02

I learned

00:26:03--> 00:26:23

that success. Not only the secrets of success are many but not only the ones that you find in books, or universities, but also it is from Allah subhanaw taala Lino Lima, whom integrated a Hadith, we taught him how to understand the dream.

00:26:25--> 00:26:32

Without a know who helped him and we're in Malawi gave him kingdom. We give him the ability to rule we give him knowledge.

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

The slave who ended up a king,

00:26:37--> 00:26:40

the prisoner who ended up a minister,

00:26:41--> 00:26:50

the child who was left in the darkness of the world, he became living like a son to the king of Egypt.

00:26:52--> 00:27:02

Allah give the knowledge and the success to people according to the taqwa. What? Allahu Allahu kumala have Taqwa of Allah and Allah subhana wa to Allah will teach you.

00:27:03--> 00:27:10

The point is not only about how smart you are, but also about how pure Your heart is.

00:27:13--> 00:27:17

ask Allah subhanaw taala And finally, yaku metachronous ma ahora

00:27:23--> 00:27:26

hamdulillah salat wa salam Ala Moana via the

00:27:30--> 00:27:35

use of Le Salaam, taught to me that noble people will always be noble

00:27:38--> 00:27:45

people who have principles in life, they will not compromise it no matter what status they are

00:27:46--> 00:27:50

in jail, they told him in another community mursaleen

00:27:51--> 00:28:04

you are among the most in in the perfect people. Excellent, generous, you know use of Le Salam used to take his food, and to break the bread and to share it with other prisoners in jail.

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

Very generous.

00:28:08--> 00:28:24

And when he became the king, when he became the king, his brothers when show when the show how he did with people, they said in narrow community listening, we see you among them, I see the same descriptions. When he was imprisoned, and when he was in the palace.

00:28:25--> 00:28:43

The same person when you were students, and when you are a CEO. When you poor and when you're rich. When you work at the store, and when you own the store, when you're young and when you're old. When you're angry and when you are come.

00:28:45--> 00:28:57

When you have and when you don't have these principles in life don't change. It's something that you love for and you live by all your life. And that was Yusuf Ali his ceram

00:28:58--> 00:29:11

I learned that two good manners really appear in the time. Our manners will be tested like use of his manners were tested. His patience was tested his father a patient was tested.

00:29:12--> 00:29:18

Do you know how long it took? Yeah, hope to find his son

00:29:19--> 00:29:20

40 years

00:29:22--> 00:29:40

40 years for zero. During this 40 years his sons told him to lie tough to tell the Kudo use of Hector takuna Hi Robin. You will continue to think about us until it will kill you. And guess what his sadness about us is amazing. COVID mean

00:29:43--> 00:29:49

Allah, I complained to Allah. What can you give him? Yeah, he he held it and

00:29:51--> 00:29:58

lost his sight. But I nominated his knee for who accompany him. Yeah, and he is the captain has no way of dealing us

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

Can you imagine this person how much he was tested? But his principle, his manners, his patience, his trust in Allah never changed. What's nice amazed me the most when they told him your other son was held is not coming back to you. Binyamin you know, what did he say?

00:30:24--> 00:30:39

Can you even remember the verse? Isola at any be him Jimmy Lai Lama when the test reached another level was his other son his most beloved other son too hard gun he said now I'll bring them both.

00:30:40--> 00:30:47

He didn't see it's not the now to break him No, he elevated his fippa his trust in Allah.

00:30:49--> 00:30:57

Yusuf was tested when he doesn't have a money and when you have a money tested when he was a boy in the palace, when he is the minister of the palace

00:30:59--> 00:31:15

tested and the time of ease and a time of calamity tested is really a person who forgives because out of weakness, or he forgives out of strength when his brothers came in front of him

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

broken

00:31:21--> 00:31:29

putting their heads down in front of use of it, sir, not when he was in Well, if he was inside the well on his head, I forgive your brothers. Okay.

00:31:30--> 00:31:37

You are like beaten up and thrown in Well, you're about to die you forgive you. It has a meaning but not very powerful.
