Shaykh Yasir Qadhi continues his discussion on the next verses of Surah Yusuf beginning from verse 23 to 35:

When she heard of their malicious talk, she sent for them and prepared a banquet for them: she gave each of them a knife: and she said (to Yusuf), “Come out before them.” When they saw him, they did extol him, and (in their amazement) cut their hands: they said, “(Allah) preserve us! no mortal is this! this is none other than a noble angel!” [12:31]

She said: “There before you is the man about whom ye did blame me! I did seek to seduce him from his (true) self but he did firmly save himself guiltless!….and now, if he doth not my bidding, he shall certainly be cast into prison, and (what is more) be of the company of the vilest!” [12:32]

Then it occurred to the men, after they had seen the signs, (that it was best) to imprison him for a time. [12:35]

00:00:00--> 00:00:03

My daughter in law, he will either it he will suck the heat woman Voila.

00:00:04--> 00:00:38

So, we are finished to the point where use Valley histogram shows his chastity and refuses the call of the wife of Aziz. And this shows you that you should have perfected both types of beauty, the outer beauty and the inner beauty, use of had the outer beauty, in other words, you had been given half of beauty, there was no demand. And he also has an inner beauty, which is shown here, the inner beauty of being charged, of being of having a man. So he has both types of beauty blessed with him, that he refused the part of the wife of Aziz.

00:00:39--> 00:00:54

So, Allah subhanho wa Taala then says we already decided these verses we've always had to know, the women of the city said that the wife of Aziz seeks to draw with the pata NFC she seeks to seduce her slave to herself, or the chef offer her

00:00:55--> 00:01:33

that barely she has loved him and extreme love. In northern Iraq Ebola a movie we see her to be clear and manifest error. Therefore, the plot of the wife of the husband was unsuccessful, the news spread even though he didn't want it to spread, and the news spread amongst the city. Miss Watson in Medina, this shows you that in general gossipers spent more by women than men as is well known, and is shown here also in the nice way of spreading this type of gossip, they're talking more about it, we're calling this wasn't a thing Medina temperature as easy. So now we look at the so called shabaka. The word shell, it means that the love has reached the depths of the hearts. It is the

00:01:33--> 00:01:49

highest level of sexual love. And there's there's other types of love, which are non sexual, which are higher than that, like hula, which is that that's higher than that. But the word sugar is the highest type of love which is sexual in nature. So they are saying that she has this type of love for her.

00:01:51--> 00:01:51

But

00:01:52--> 00:02:12

here is Nokia a very interesting point here. It extracts from this verse 10 different ways that the women of the city blamed the wife of zooming in the city talks bad about the wife of as he The first way is they said in Merchandising, so they called her by a title and not by her name.

00:02:13--> 00:02:42

So they didn't even mention her name, either showing her consumption disrespect. The second way is to the title that they used was not just any title in Milan, it is reminding themselves Amber, that she is the wife of a GS one who is respected the minister's like, not just anyone. The third way that they showed disrespect to shows that they blamed her was that they said that Fatah her that he is a slave. He is a slave. And the fourth way her own slave shefa.

00:02:43--> 00:03:16

So not only is the anything, it's always there, which should be the least way of contagion. In other words, you should not be attracted to your own slave. How can we charge you to own slaves? So the fact that he's a slave? And like we said, in general in the past, the Free Will the free men and women were absolutely distinct and separate from the slave men and women they would not the type of intermingling or extraction in general because they are contemptuous look down upon. People don't look up to please. So men in general are not even attracted to slave women, as presented obviously for purchasing and buying does your own slave as separate that prisoner in general? A man even if

00:03:16--> 00:03:55

he's not pious, a free man, he would think it too demeaning to come to a slave go for dinner. That is why they're saying her own slave. But the fifth way, is there a thing called the Shahada? In other words, the level of love is not just any level, it has reached the height of lust, the shelf which is the middle of the heart, the depths of the heart. The sixth way is by mentioning that too long with a she is the one that entices him and not the other way around. Okay? She is the one that entices him. The seventh way is by inferring that he did not respond to her enticements. So he is the one that is better than her. Because the rest of us because she's tempting, and they didn't say

00:03:55--> 00:04:33

that she did anything with him. So the fact that she tempted him is implied that he did not listen to that temptation. So this is yet a seventh century seventh blaming of the wife of z to the wife of it upon the wife of it, that she is guilty and all of these things. The eighth way is that they have used the present tense to always she's still doing it. So they're saying that not only did she didn't want in their in their eyes, she is still comparing him to this day. Okay? The night weigh in nada, nada, we are sure we see her. So the fact that we are seeing her in this way, okay. So we are positive we see her to be and the temporary body moving and basically a clear and manifest error and

00:04:33--> 00:04:40

the fact that she has such a strong love for him, and he is so innocent of this crime is working on.

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

Okay, so, so these are 10 ways that innovative extracts from this one verse showing you how the women of the city censured and blamed and reproach the wife of Aziz, a London says, send me the Macarena when she heard of their plots. Interesting. What's wrong?

00:05:00--> 00:05:30

They didn't do any Plus, they were only talking about the love that she had for use of what God is here. You see, she is a woman and she knows women's mind, she knows why they are talking about this. She knows they want to see use of what could have called the wife of it to fall for a slave. There must be something strange about this person. So Allah calls, they're talking, which means a plus. Because she knows the mentality. She's She's on the same wavelength. She knows why the women are talking in this manner.

00:05:31--> 00:05:45

They went to see us. And they can't say that because that would be that accusing themselves that they have a desire for you. So they talk in this manner, and this shows you the evils of gossip. It shows you the evils of backbiting. It shows you the evils of having a prestigious

00:05:46--> 00:05:58

honor which is based on arrogance and given that how could the wife of it so now she's now she's missed, she's like, you know, enraged that they're making fun of me in this manner, and I have to uphold my reputation. All of these evils are shown here.

00:05:59--> 00:06:34

So once you've heard their plots and plans are set up in a in a she invited all of them for a general party and it can be imagine a woman of her status would frequently invite the ladies to come to her house. So she invited them and loaned them with Takashi prepared a couch for them. In other words, the setting will be very easy setting casual setting. So there will be a moussaka as a place to sit back on a couch, reclining couch. So they would have prepared the whole room decorated it. And she gave each one of them a nice, which automatically implies that they already had had dinner. And they have been given the fruits because you know the custom even to this day, once the item is

00:06:34--> 00:06:47

that you give for dessert to give fruits like an apple or orange or something of this nature. So it is already implied they had a good meal, they had a nice talk. And so they're all casual, they're not expecting anything. All of this is inferred and implied already without diversity to say so and she gave a nice

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

she gave a nice

00:06:51--> 00:07:21

to them, which means that now they are all full contents relaxed, they have the apple or the orange in one hand, and the nice in the other. And then the aroma, they also say some of the aroma they say that she had already prepared use of that day. And essentially, as always, the user did not know what to happen, she had told you to dress in a certain manner and whatever, to be prepared to look his best. And then when they least expected it, and they have the knife in their hand. On the other hand, she commanded use it to come out she was so called use of and use of obviously has no idea what she wants to do. She's probably thinking that she wants me to do something you'd like to slave

00:07:21--> 00:07:28

should do so much or something. So she said come out to them. Funnily enough, when they saw him, as

00:07:29--> 00:08:10

they exalted in they made him very big. They made him you know, exalted in grants. In other words, they thought they thought him to be a very high major and a high Yani, you know, look at enhance them, woke up for an ad of one. And in they're surprised at the beauty in their surprise and looking at us so unexpected with they were is that the knife went all the way into the foot and cut their own hands. And this shows you the handsome little regimen of use is that even though they were caught by surprise, but still so let the knife go all the way and cut your hand is something very extreme. So they testifies with their own blood if you like to eat handsome this enjoyment of use of

00:08:11--> 00:08:51

the hash added on top of that they said hash it looks like some power and a lot. There's an amazement acquired amazement mahadasha This cannot be a human being. Because the way they indicated it, this is not a human. It has that in the Malecon Kareem rather, this is a very, very noble Angel and has a handsome Angel. And as you know the angels in general are very handsome and the Sheldon in general are very ugly and evil looking into the general there could be some exceptions like the angel of the fire of hell, he is very stern and evil okay now what she does, Allison has caused them, but in general the angels are very handsome looking. That is why when

00:08:52--> 00:09:13

Angel GB will come in the form of man to the pockets of assembly was for me, it would come in the form of detail which was a very handsome companion would come in that form. So they said marhaba shall be negated immediately this cannot be a human being. So handsome is so beautiful is he we have not seen this type of beauty existence amongst human beings. Rather, this must be

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

something that is more than human.

00:09:17--> 00:09:59

So then, she says call it now she has achieved what she wanted to achieve. They have shown by their tongue and by their blood even that they cannot control themselves. So she is saying you just saw it as of Tuesday. You just saw use of one and you bled because of this. Imagine I am living with him. And I'm seeing him day and night. How can you blame me for this? So she's saying now call it a radical digital identity. This is the one that you talked about about me. This is the one which essentially and blame me for that was you yourself look at your condition. And you just told him what's How about me? How can you blame me for doing what I did for the Navy and now look at her

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

journey.

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

Nature and her unabashedly unashamedly. She is not even ashamed of what she's about to say. She said, What are the raw? What to one nasty pasta? That? Yes, I did tempt him. She admits that she's not embarrassed. You yourself show that you can control your emotions, would you expect me? Yes, I did send him first that song, and he stopped himself. So in fact, she is praising us up in front of him to them is that not only does he have an outer beauty, he has an inner beauty as well. I tempted him and he refused to continue, which obviously drives to even more incentive, as you know, even worse than the most evil person when he wants to, he might refer to others in the organization when

00:10:38--> 00:11:09

it comes to marriage. So or when it comes to this nature. Now his wife must be an angel, okay. And this is so common amongst the Muslims is very sad, that throughout your life, you might be doing evil things and you know, things that are not even proper for them to do. And then when it comes to marriage, so they want their spouse to be Mr. or Mrs. Perfect was they themselves were not. So the point is, even though a person might be evil in nature, he is attracted to an inner beauty as well. So when he's going to choose a life partner, you choose someone who has integrity as well. The point is, even though these people are concerned, she is praising us by saying that he has an inner beauty

00:11:09--> 00:11:26

of chastity as well. I tempted him, not only is he this beautiful on top of that he has an inner beauty he has he is very chatty, that he presented himself from freestyle something he didn't do what I wanted him to do by him, so she praises you. So she admits unabashedly unashamedly of what she did. And now

00:11:27--> 00:11:48

she goes a step further. And she opened the challenges us and she openly talks him in front of all of them, while ilam Yes, Allah. Moreover, if he doesn't listen to what I'm commanding him to do, they use gentlemen of assurity I will indeed put him in prison, I will lay a corner in the middle salvini or he will be amongst those who are humiliation

00:11:49--> 00:12:29

at the level of unabashedly shamelessness like sensuousness that she has, in front of all of the women, the noble women of the city, she is openly saying, I will do what I want with this man. And if he doesn't listen to me, I will punish him. And some of you remember, they say that, in fact, all of the women took us aside and tried to tempt him in discovering all of them wanted him only for themselves, but they all agreed that she should, of course have right over us because she is the master. So she openly says now I have the right over him and I will command him to do what I want. And if he doesn't, then he will be punished. Okay, labeling the minister when he will be amongst

00:12:29--> 00:13:02

those who are humiliated. This Yani once again uses Hello without utterance to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he says on the rugby he says, My Lord, a signal the prison is a Hubble in a year is more beloved to me, Maria de una de la to that which they call me. So I would prefer to be in prison. Rather than do what they are commanding me to do what in the toxic Arnica the hula, and if you do not avert from me, their plans of La Hindi, I will lean towards them, what acuminata

00:13:03--> 00:13:40

and I will be from amongst the jacquelene. So here now he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala against, he realizes that Allah is his only hope against this, a whole a whole roomful of women, and not just any woman, woman of nobility, you can imagine there will be the most beautiful in the city because of this. So a whole room full of women temps and threatens him on top of that, before she's not threatened him. Right? all of the factors were there, but she didn't threatened. Now, the final thing, if you don't listen to me, on top of all of the temptations that are already there, that he is a stranger, and he is a slave. And he's younger than this. There's one more temptation now that

00:13:40--> 00:14:16

you better do it, or else you're going to be punished. This is a threat. Now, if I can entice you in any way, let me threaten you, by some way to do what I want you to. And not just that in front of all of the women. I don't care let the news be, but I'm not embarrassed anymore. So you have no nothing to say against me. No. And if you don't listen to me, I will send you to prison or punish you. So he says he turns to Allah subhana wa Tada. He realized this law, who was a loving law, that there is no way to change anything more is there any power except with Allah subhana wa Tada. He says, Oh, my Lord, the prison is more beloved to me, I'd rather go to prison than to go into their

00:14:16--> 00:14:52

desires. So he realizes that to fall into their desires will bring into a greater prison will cause them to suffer more than the suffering of the prison, and will lie This is the essence of the man there's so few of us have reached. This is the essence of the man to prefer the pleasures of the occident over the pleasures of the dunya. So realize that the sin of this dunya only being bring a temporary pleasure, a pleasure that is tainted with guilt, a pleasure that is tainted with evil approaches that has very bad side effects. And it is only the worship of Allah that brings about a pure pleasure, the pleasure that the like of which there is no other pleasures, that for which

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

happiness have given me a sense that there is a agenda in this world. If you don't enter this gender, you will not taste the gym. That is the appeal of it is this

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

Jenna have the worship of Allah subhana wa Tada, which no one except he who is worshipped, Allah realizes the beauty and the sweetness of this worship such that when another pleasure is presented to him, he can say, Oh, my Lord, the prison is more beloved to me, than this pleasure that they're offering me. Because if I fall into this pleasure of yours, at this pleasure of this, then it will bring me the sin of the hereafter will bring me the prison of the Hereafter, which is far worse than the pleasure that I will gain in this world. And he also said, numa is ruin any delay, what they are calling me to, he didn't even say how evil is dinner, he didn't even mention the word. He said,

00:15:34--> 00:16:11

whatever they're calling me to think that I mentioned the word here now, showing you the evil nature and Jehovah or the disgusting nature of dinner. And then he makes a plea, which is a heartfelt plea. He doesn't say, oh, Allah, save me from them. He says, if you don't save me from them, I will be amongst those who ajayi. And this is more eloquent than just making the free a person's journey, because if you don't see him doing it wrong, this is more eloquent than saying, I'm jogging helped me because you're showing the consequences of not obeying him or not listening to this tweet, your use of mixed up three in the form of a drop. He makes a statement in the form of a drop. If you

00:16:11--> 00:16:27

don't respond to my three, if you don't listen to me, what will happen to him again, beautiful over here, I will incline towards them. Yes, you can, although he didn't even say he's going to do anything I will be inclined towards. That's all he said. And he didn't even want to be inclined towards them.

00:16:28--> 00:16:39

I will be inclined towards them. And I will be amongst the Jackie Dean. How will he be amongst a group where he is a prophet of Allah? Because the height of ignorance is to know the truth and not act upon it.

00:16:40--> 00:17:06

To know what is right and wrong, and knowledgeably willfully turn away from that, that is the height of ignorance. And that is why the setup said everyone who disagreed a lot of the jargon is ignorant. Everyone who disagrees a lot is an ignorant person. Not that he doesn't know it's haram and Helen, but he preferred the temporary pleasure over the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada. And that is what Allah also says in the Quran. In the matoba

00:17:08--> 00:17:14

Johanna tilbyr, a low accepted Toba of those who did sin upon ignorance,

00:17:15--> 00:17:36

some way to remember him and then they come in, or then they perform Toba. Immediately after that, I'm sorry, what is the meaning of upon ignorance? Some of the people they read this first they think if I do a mistake, and I didn't know it was a sin. I didn't know for example, that mortgages are haram and then I took a mortgage This is what the verses like to know. The verse like the set of set is B Johanna means every one which

00:17:37--> 00:18:17

is inclusive term, when you just obey Allah, you are a giant, it's that simple. Are you disobey Allah we go against the commandments, all of us are we are ignorant, because we knew the commandments of Allah and we did not act upon that knowledge and this is the height of ignorance and that is what you sow says I will incline towards them. I will lean towards this and I will be from the judge he means are different monsters will know that knowledge but do not act upon it. Okay? And that is what I consider certified cool, luminous Allahu wa jal, everyone who just obeys a lot is a giant. This also shows you the use of had indeed perfected both types of beauty, the beauty from

00:18:17--> 00:18:26

Allah subhana wa Tada, which he blessed him with and the interviews that he is preferring the prison over with the women. Yeah, they call him too. And once they get in the habit of the seven will be

00:18:28--> 00:18:50

shaded on the DOJ, which comes to mind here that look at the intensity of the plea of the wife of ideas in front of all of the women and all the women are thinking as well, one upon one individually and collectively, and there's a threat and there is a entitlements, everything is there yet he refuses that. And he prefers the surgeon or the prison over the temptations of the wife of Judah and the other women

00:18:51--> 00:19:34

by the hoopoe so his Lord responded to him and this is how a lot tighter without a response when you turn to Him in this nature and situations. This is how Allah subhanho wa Taala responds and this is why Allah subhana wa tada also says, that Allah, Allah in America with me, is only to say that humble. Those those that have Taqwa of Allah, when she touches them with a statement such as done with a whisper, because they remember, they remember Allah, they turn to Allah says Allah was known so they can see clearly, they know what is right and wrong. So the way of the believer the morning is not a temptation to not come to him. But when temptations come to him, he turns to Allah subhana

00:19:34--> 00:19:59

wa tada to solve and stuff and that temptation to get rid of that temptation. And once they can look at us of how helpless is he? He can't do anything now. But all he can do is turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and look at you might think it is so weak yet because he turned to a lot of others to not for a job but his Lord responded to him for a long time. Okay, the one Allah subhanho wa Taala a virtue they're plotting and planning in a semi or guardian verily is the one that hears that

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

He is the one that knows he is the one that he is the one who calls out to him. And he knows the situation of the one that calls out. When a person calls out to Allah, Allah is aware of how you're calling out how much sincerity you have. Are you just putting on a show? Or are you half hearted, a weak minded? Or are you really wanting to be saved from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he has sent here, he hears you. And he responds to that. And he has I mean, he knows your situation, he knows why you are turning to him. He knows the state that you're in, when you turn to him for some other

00:20:31--> 00:21:14

then it became it appeared to that word became Jani. It appeared pleasing to them in that email, which is after they had seen the clear signs. They a student who had the hint that they put him in prison for a while, okay, so it became clear to them or they thought that it would be better to put him in prison, even though they have seen the clear signs, what clear signs that they seem to have seen the signs of the innocence of usage, and the beauty, the inner beauty of uses, that he was absolutely not guilty of any crime. So after these clear signs, the IRS had been made clear to them, and look again, how evil these people are. And obviously, they're not even Muslim Dakota, but they

00:21:14--> 00:21:46

are embarrassed about what has occurred. So they think that why did they put us in jail? They think that news will spread. Now obviously, remember, the wealth of ideas is not alone. Now finding and finding all of the ministers wives in the major ones in the city are now plugging in funding for and on behalf of the wife of Nigeria agreeing with your partner. And so they thought, well, not everyone's going to talk about it, the whole society will talk about us, why don't we put yourself in jail. And the people will think that Yusuf is the guilty party had to hate until people forget about it for a short period of time, or whatever do they want it to until the people you know,

00:21:46--> 00:22:17

forget about this talk, as you know that the way that mankind is that a certain issue will come up, and for a number of months, or weeks or years people will just talk about this issue. Eventually everyone's gonna get tired and it will be forgotten. Okay. Likewise, here, the people must have been talking about usage and what has occurred in the ministers wife's house, and now all of the wives of the city, they must be talking what is going on, they're all something useful, what's wrong with them. So to get out of the suspicions to get out of the rumors, let's just throw yourself in jail. Everyone will think he's the guilty party. And we'll keep him there for a few years. As long as the

00:22:17--> 00:22:58

rumors and the end these type of rumors are going around. Once again, it shows you the evil nature of rumors, and also the evil nature of a man's first teach, which is not based upon yourself, because they wanted to save face. They did this to us. He went to Alaska, and named it Mara when they saw the clear signs, the apparent size, how innocent usage is they've seen it, yet, it became apparent to them or they thought the best course of action, because they wanted to save their face, when it could save their own reputation. But let's throw us into prison for a short while playing with that inshallah we will finish for today. And we will open the floor for questions for the last

00:22:58--> 00:22:59

session and for this session.

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

And tomorrow, I'd like to remind you, we will start 1130 sharp beginning that is Allah so that we can finish this oil, we're already a bit delayed because of our delay today. So I remind the brothers if they can start early tomorrow.

00:23:22--> 00:23:22

The question

00:23:25--> 00:23:40

the first question, how do we know that as his wife was called too late? We don't and I never mentioned this name. But this is somebody in India. And we don't know her name, and there's no need to know her name. It is sufficient to know that she is the wife of as he asked for the name of a fight is not mentioned in any

00:23:41--> 00:24:02

of the forum. So we don't really care that much about it. If somebody saw Yes, whether it was her name or not, it doesn't really matter. Why is the reference to the plural when it comes to pay the Navin because we said that the wife or the husband is himself, he is actually getting angry at all women. Not that there was any other woman involved right now. Yes, the second hand there was more than one woman involved.

00:24:13--> 00:24:24

Not that there were any other women involved or the first time but the wife or the husband is getting angry that all of you women, when you plot and plan, right, it is a great party and planning that is why the plural is there.

00:24:25--> 00:24:33

If a transaction is made at the time of purchase, there is no doubt. However, after purchase becomes evident, especially if we raised what is the remedy by is the suspicion

00:24:34--> 00:25:00

if the transaction is made, at the time of a purchase, there is no doubt However, after the purchase, it becomes evident that the suspicions should be raised. What is the remedy? Well, obviously the remedy is that in an atomic pitch, you take it higher up, you know you go through the course of something when it becomes clear, suppose for example, that you purchase something which is very unique, and someone then informs you Hey, that same thing was stolen from me. Okay, well, you said I purchased it from you know XYZ and I didn't

00:25:00--> 00:25:30

He saw that he says, No, this is my item that was stolen from me. So in this case, obviously you've taken highest when a solid quarter, surely our court asked for our times we do whatever we can. But we don't have Sharia court where we live right now. So you know, what can? What can you do except try your best to hear Allah. And if you know that it wasn't stolen merchandise or something, you should in fact, Jenny, give it back to the person. And if you went to some estate, you would also get the price stuff but I don't know in this country. What would be the remedy for that? Is slavery permissible in Islam? Yes, definitely. It is permissible in Islam? If so, what is the status of a

00:25:30--> 00:25:37

slave? The status of the slave is that he is not a free person. He is. He is a slave that he can be bought and sold like merchandise and property.

00:25:39--> 00:26:13

What is the correct word it occurred to me that slavery contradicts the quality of life. No, it does not, because we mentioned that slavery is related to purpose. Okay? slavery is related to property and attach the only way that a person can acquire slaves he often Firstly, is corporate. And in reality, this is a mercy from Allah Subhana, WA, tada, you go for jihad. Okay, the people that are killed in the battle or killed, what do you do about the prisoners of war? In the beginning, the previous nations, they would have killed us, they would have just killed all of them. What do we do we have the option, it's up to the leader of the Muslims, if he wants them, he can

00:26:14--> 00:26:54

sell them for ransom. So they promise they will make some money. If you want, he can set them free for that reason. It's up to him. And if he wants, he can make them slaves. So we did a slaver is just one alternative, and it does exist. So the author of slavery is that that person was fighting alone as messengers. That's why he became a state. Therefore it is purely, just an purely equitable. Now if that slave or his children also will be saved, accept Islam. And that is a different story. But the answer was that slavery is and is that slavery is based upon that, obviously, Islam has a long topic about slavery. But what happens is the Muslims raised up in the West, they have the

00:26:54--> 00:27:25

conception of slavery as it occurs in American England and how it used to occur. Therefore, the word slavery is synonymous with, you know, terrorism or against human rights and torture and feudal abuse. And this is very difficult to get out of our minds, because we have been brainwashed in very many ways, just having lived in the West, and I speak myself having grown up in the West, it's not something you know, it's something from an outsider, it's very difficult to get some negative connotations out of slavery, but you read about Islamic slaves and Muslim slaves and how they treated them. It's a totally different picture, you read the Hadith about sleep, once again, it's a

00:27:25--> 00:27:26

totally different picture.

00:27:27--> 00:28:00

The profitsystem strongly encouraged the feeling of asleep, instead of a person who is a slave that for every joint of his that is read the person's job to also be free from the fire of hell, okay? And so many other when you do a sin, or when you do a crime, the explanation is to free a slave. Okay, the kasara is to free asleep. And that is the same as the jharia when she was asked that the slave girl wears a lot, and that she pointed up to describe what is the basis of that having the basis that it is the Sahabi had to be a slave, he had done some Safar, he had done something that was wrong, and he has to be the slave. So he took this girl to the profit center to find out whether

00:28:00--> 00:28:32

she's a Muslim or non Muslim or not, because you're only allowed to free Muslim slaves for the sake of Allah as a cassara. And what they're going to shows you everything is for the advances, that the slaves are supposed to be freed if they're Muslims. And it is an act of worship to be a slave, and it can be used for your karma, it can be used to free slaves. Again, we'll go into a long chapter of every single book of yours has a chapter on slaves, if anyone is more interested, they can go read them up, but the summary and the gist of it is the concept of slavery in Islam is totally totally totally different to the concept of slavery that we have grown up in and knowing in the western

00:28:32--> 00:28:38

reading what's in the books of history, therefore, if someone on the street about if they want to find out more, and you will get a different perspective

00:28:43--> 00:29:15

when the Prophet both in and out, so what could you do the players the female companions are disagreeing and the processing said you are like the women of use of what does it mean? It means that in the argumentation that they were doing amongst themselves and Amano is what that argumentation was, okay, but like any for maybe perhaps, blaming us for trying to get out of blaming use, blaming themselves by blaming us, they were argumentative, too much. So the proper system compared them to the women abusive, and that they were argumentative and what they did. The prophets have to speak the truth even if it's against you, does this mean we can defend ourselves in that

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

situation?

00:29:18--> 00:29:42

I did not understand the question can we defend ourselves for example, if a person is guilty of a crime, and you need the police or the audio the judge asked him if he did the crime, he should be honest you because the lies yet a second sin. He has done once in a while make it up to to take the punishment for that sin and the punishment in this world is much easier. And it is a cleansing manufacture for the punishment of any person the Muslim state catches. When he confesses and

00:29:43--> 00:30:00

is punished then that sin is forgotten, and Allah will not punish him for that sin. In America, we have something called the Fifth Amendment rights, the movies that probably made it famous. So the person says I'm not going to I'm taking the fifth note, which means the Fifth Amendment says a person does not have to

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

testify against himself, okay? In other words, he did a crime. He doesn't have to testify, which is, of course against Islam, he did the crime, you should end if you are caught doesn't mean you go and confess without any reason if you don't want to, you should hide your sin. But if you are caught or if so happens that

00:30:15--> 00:30:23

detaches you which of course, we're not even living in one, so we don't have to worry about it. But if that is the case, then to lie is to yet another Jani center that

00:30:28--> 00:30:38

you said that the caravan sold user for addict for a small price so that he may hide his slave foot? Why would he not tell the people that he was a free man, if the price is small,

00:30:40--> 00:30:56

they will never say that. If they had raised the commotion, that's what they say they raise the commotion by causing by, you know, making a high price you think about as you're trying to get rid of use of surreptitiously secretly. So the first person that comes right, the first person that comes and whichever call it

00:30:57--> 00:31:23

wants to buy uses, right? They offered him to use because they don't want to cause any scene, they don't want to cause any commotion. Therefore, by hiding the crime, we try to get rid of it by getting rid of use it in the fastest and easiest manner possible by selling him for the cheapest price. I have heard that even if we do certain Halong actions like getting rid of it we are sinful even if we don't know that this is prohibited. Is it true that for certain basic activities, we do haram unknowingly, we will have a double sin?

00:31:24--> 00:31:27

No, we have to have the free we have to have some type of

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

differentiation here, okay.

00:31:32--> 00:31:53

If a person is genuinely ignorant, okay, he didn't, he did not know that what he did was a sin, then he will not be sinful for that, if he took adequate precautions. For example, you're living in a Muslim society, okay. And there will not be students have knowledge all around you. If you did not go out of your way and make sure that what you're doing,

00:31:54--> 00:32:29

then you are sinful for that. But if you're in a situation where there aren't over them, our students, or you're not that may or it didn't occur to you that what you're doing might be a thing. In this case, you are absolved from sin. So when a person intentionally, intentionally done some type of attack, and he had some doubts about his act, then it becomes obligatory to notice because he's gone under Obama, because he's going and doing something which is strange for him. But if he is genuinely innocent, and he doesn't think that what he's doing is wrong or anything, then, in this case, if you didn't think we're conscious, and he genuinely was ignorant, and he didn't think that

00:32:29--> 00:32:32

there'd be anything around, he is not held sinful

00:32:36--> 00:32:36

batteries

00:32:37--> 00:32:38

for what he is doing.

00:32:40--> 00:33:15

The next question is one evolving by going through the course of the talk. In reality, I myself have asked this question, too many of them are shared with me and others, and they have different about it. And this is something that requires a sexual right from an audience. And not only am I not an alum, I'm not even a sponsor. So this question should not be asking me, where are they when another major item comes visiting? Or if the brother or sister can call up one of the major for them are in her particular situation? I don't believe that this type of question should be asked in a blanket statement question. Rather, the person should describe his or her situation, you know, for example,

00:33:15--> 00:33:45

this and this, and this has happened to me, and I cannot get my rights back, except by going to the cultural courses that allowed me or not, up to the answer that Shepard gave me was that when he did the writing itself, that he deserved, and the only way to get it is by going to the course of the croissant that it allowed for them to go to the course of the course. Okay. However, I've also advised the brothers when they're in such a situation, they should try their best to get a flight to a from an island in their particular situation so that it is they get out of any problems that Allah

00:33:47--> 00:33:56

knows best. What should one do nowadays, if one has pivoted sooner, as the punishment is not possible in a country like this? How can you take the pressure in this part to reduce the pressure that

00:33:57--> 00:34:25

a person has committed to dinner, right in this life, even if he is living in an Islamic State, you should not go and confess he should not go and expose himself. In fact, the only way a person came to the process of confessing almost dead, why didn't you remain quiet about it? Why didn't you keep it between. And that's the process of turning away for taxes and giving you the chance to get out of this, you don't have to do this, go back and attend to Allah. So even if you were in an Islamic State, it is

00:34:27--> 00:34:59

better for you to remain quiet about it. Because it has also a number of evils to go first you expose yourself and humiliate yourself. Secondly, other people you're spreading the part that didn't exist. And this is something which is very common, our culture, our culture, everything in the Western culture. They constantly have grown up in it, they love to spread evil and so we're having an affair. So doing this type of spreading even if it is total that leads to more evil. So you keep it quiet, you keep it Look, you don't talk about it, okay? Therefore, even in it

00:35:01--> 00:35:38

What up? How about if you have to compensate by hours, keep it between you and a lesson kind of data and know that Allah tiny without accept silver for any and everything, even the sort of shift. The only way to get out of shape and have your state of shift forgiven is to turn to align Islam potential lentil fees to the soul level that's the sin of murder the sin of rape, and the biggest sins are forgiven by children. Therefore How about the sin, which is the major sin but there isn't even bigger than that. If they can be forgiven by a sinner, that How about itself, do not lose hope of the mercy of Allah, turn to Allah subhana wa Tada. Change Your Life around, worship a lot more

00:35:38--> 00:35:59

because of the sin of yours. repent to Allah frequently, often and often. And we'll log into Malala if you fulfill the conditions of Toba, then Allah Subhana Allah will forgive you for anything that you have done because he is a fool. He is the man he does. These are the names and attributes of a lot what can you lose when you are faced with a lot of valuable data that is described with

00:36:00--> 00:36:07

rarely you will be the victor inshallah, even if you have limited silver, you will be the victory. You will be the victor as long as you

00:36:08--> 00:36:21

as long as you do go back to Allah subhana wa Tada. This is a thing when you move your mouth away from the microphone, your voice does not come to the speaker. Now it's not my mouth, it is actually the microphone is turning on and off. So the problem is with the microphone and loud with my mouth and

00:36:26--> 00:36:30

any more questions before we conclude we have another seven minutes or six minutes.

00:36:54--> 00:37:23

Okay, the question is, why was he called a shot hit? Again, the other have different if he was a small child or something he might have been a physical child. But if he was an older person or something, Allah soprano, Allah says he testified in the sense that he had to fight for the truth by giving the criteria of who would be the truth and who's the one who is lying. So he testified on behalf of the truth and not necessarily you testify to what he saw. Therefore, he gave a condition that a criterion there, Allah subhanaw taala knows that.

00:37:28--> 00:37:53

Continuous, a continuous set of a person who commits continuously committing sins, and he has the intention to commit the sin, then this is not the proper silver. Okay? One of the conditions of sober is that the person must make a sincere intention not to return to that thing. This is one of the conditions of a truth over. Now it's one thing we have to differentiate between someone who's always doing a thing and he knows he's doing a set and he doesn't feel guilty about that.

00:37:55--> 00:38:09

It is not so but when you're doing this, there was another case where a person doesn't say and you repent to Allah He said you're not going to do this in again. And yet chipmunk costume and and he falls in even though he didn't want to he falls into the same art that he does.

00:38:11--> 00:38:47

In this case, the first Oba is still valid and complete. And there is no problem if he doesn't embark yet is what the second citizen dependency, so he should do with that. And if he falls into the third set, again, the same thing again, once again, there's no problem, because that's the first Oh, that's not another fight the second to last another fight. Every Toba is an independent act for that particular. The problem arises when he's doing a sense and he has in his heart, he's going to continue this. In this case he has not done proper silver or nothing he will not be forgiven. So it is possible you will be forgiven, especially if he feels guilty or something of that nature.

00:38:49--> 00:39:23

If he feels guilty or something, this is a sign of at least some demand. But it is not perfection of the production of stilbite has a number of conditions number one sincerity, you must repent for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. Number two feeling guilty. If you don't feel guilty that you didn't do anything wrong, you have to feel guilty between you and Allah. Number three is Step five, which means you seek Allah's forgiveness, you stand up for the law, okay? Number four, is you have to make a sincere intention, not to return to that sin. And this must only be an intention. And if it does occur, don't let your thought come and make you feel depressed again, over again. Because what

00:39:23--> 00:39:59

happens is she succeeds in causing a Muslim to build too cynical to text. He doesn't sit, and then he repeats, but he doesn't save any room at the same time, third, fourth, fifth, six, seven times. After a while he says a lot like you have a chip on his one. Let me just do this and I'm never going to get over it. No, every time you do a send you do it's over Subhanallah This is what life is about is what to do since we are human beings that helps in doing this over. And when you do double you make a sincere desire, I will not return to that in the fact that you eventually do that shaper succeeds in doing that. Don't let that get you depressed in October, do your job. And then a

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

And then again, you do it a million times do that Toba.

00:40:04--> 00:40:39

Don't let c Park get your email down because of the mind to the test. You're trusting a lot, and you hope for forgiveness. Church will love over and over and over again and allow it of assurance, except you're over, over and over and over again, do not know the heaviness of the man who said, who committed a sin. And he said, you're up next to them. But Oh my Lord, forgive me. Then he did another thing. And he said, You're up and up to them. But for Billy or Madonna committed to forgive me, then he said for the third time, and Allah subhanaw taala kept on saying you are forgiven, you're forgiven. You're forgiven when he said it for the courts. And what did Allah say? He said,

00:40:39--> 00:40:46

this servant of mine, knows that he has a lord, whom he is sinning against, know that I forgiven all of this. And because of this,

00:40:48--> 00:41:15

the person realized I am sinful. He realized Allah is my boy. He realized Allah created me, he realized, oh Lord gave me what told me what to do and what not to do. He realized I have fallen short in these obligations. And then when he raised his hands up to Allah, and he said, Oh, my Lord, forgive me, I have committed a sin. But you didn't get tired of forgiving his sins, rather. And he said, such a person, I forgiven all of these things. And he brought witness to that he told the angels to testify to this. This is the one who you're dealing with.

00:41:16--> 00:41:19

The one who continuously accepts approaches doba

00:41:20--> 00:41:21

Rahim, Allah

00:41:24--> 00:41:29

Subhana Allah when you are dealing with one whose names and attributes are like this, how can you give up hope over the mercy of Allah.

00:41:31--> 00:41:52

So don't give up if you're doing a sin. Don't give up hope of the mercy of Allah. Continue to do as many times as you do the sin and know that one of the plots of cepas is to make you feel too sinful, too guilty to raise your hand up to Allah to forgive him. And this is one of the partnerships that we have to be aware of. And Allah subhana wa tada knows that.

00:41:53--> 00:41:58

Is it permissible to dodge paying taxes in Muslim lands and non Muslim not?

00:41:59--> 00:42:32

Obviously Muslim lands, obviously not. It is something that you have the civil authority to do it, you're obeying the rules is a part of our APA, as long as they are not commanded to do something that is preferred. And even in the non Western lands, I've asked us to shepherd them in another order, not even in the non Muslim lands, you should obey them. After all you living here willingly, you're living here on your own free choice, okay? If they told you, if you want to live in, for example, England, you have to get what 35% off of your taxes, that's fine. That's the condition. If you don't want to get the taxes leave the country, by not giving taxes, you're causing problems for

00:42:32--> 00:42:52

other Muslims. Our reputation will be built amongst the non Muslims, that the Muslims are the only like this and this and that. And while we're a minority, we have to do our best to make sure that we can worship Allah in peace. We can worship Allah perfectly. So if you want to live in this country, you have to obey the laws, as long as those laws do not go against your Sharia. When they tell you, for example, that

00:42:54--> 00:43:16

you have to deliver, which I don't know the country was supposed to end it, you have to take it, but you don't have to take liberty. You have a choice here. But suppose they were forcing you to do it or something of that nature. Here now, that like, there is no obedience to be creative when it comes to disobeying the Creator. And this is a long topic, but in general, you must obey the law of the land that you're living in. This is a photo from the Kyoto Villa, and this is what makes common sense. If you ponder over it as well

00:43:18--> 00:43:21

was that inshallah we have to conclude this reminder
