Episode Notes

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi continues the Tafseer of Surah Yusuf from verses 53 to 74:

And when he had furnished them forth with provisions (suitable) for them, he said: “Bring unto me a brother ye have, of the same father as yourselves, (but a different mother): see ye not that I pay out full measure, and that I do provide the best hospitality? [12:59]

Now when they returned to their father, they said: “O our father! No more measure of grain shall we get (unless we take our brother): So send our brother with us, that we may get our measure; and we will indeed take every care of him.” [12:63]

At length when he had furnished them forth with provisions (suitable) for them, he put the drinking cup into his brother’s saddle-bag. Then shouted out a crier: “O ye (in) the caravan! behold! ye are thieves, without doubt!” [12:70]

(The brothers) said: “By Allah. well ye know that we came not to make mischief in the land, and we are no thieves!” [12:73]

curve

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

hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah he was early he was being a woman. Voila.

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

Yesterday we finished up till

00:05:14--> 00:05:32

the place where Yusuf Ali Salaam succeeded in taking his brother Binyamin even though the law of the land would not have allowed that had you not plotted and planned in that particular fashion and manner that Allah subhana wa Taala told him to. So once the brothers have used the value ceram realized that their value would be taken away from them.

00:05:33--> 00:05:36

They immediately said called in yesterday,

00:05:37--> 00:05:51

they said very the if he has stalled, if any, I mean, has been accused of stealing and he has stolen this cup for the soccer Arcola home in Kabul. Verily his brother before him has also stolen meaning use of Allah His salon.

00:05:52--> 00:06:33

So here, look at the depths of depravity that they have gone down to that their brother has been caught stealing Binyamin instead of supporting him or defending him, or trying to find an excuse, or trying to find out what really happened. Immediately. They freed themselves of him by saying that, well, if he is a thief, then verily he had a brother also before Him who stole as well meaning use. So they're showing that this is not their full brother, because they said he has a brother before him. So this is not their full brother, he and his brother are separate from us. We are their half brothers. And they also said this is well known in that part of the family. him and his brother

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

Yousef are well known for stealing.

00:06:36--> 00:07:06

So look at how evil they became accused use of this life that of course Yusuf was guilty was not was innocent of any type of stealing or any type of robbery. And in fact, the brothers themselves were the real thieves. They were the ones who stole us. They were the ones who captured us. They were the ones who sold him into slavery according to one opinion. So they are the real thieves, they stole human merchandise from their fathers. So who is the greater of the two thieves use of the innocent one, or the brothers the actual thieves?

00:07:08--> 00:07:50

Here they say one of his brothers has stolen before him. Now, it seems like this is a pure lie. Obviously, the use of Arlene syrup did not steal anything. Some some freedom out of the setup. However, they say that when Yusuf was a child, his maternal grandfather, his mother's father, was an idol worshiper. So he took away the idol that his maternal grandfather used to worship. As they say he stole the idol. He took the idol and he destroyed it so that his maternal grandfather would stop committing shifts, and accept Islam. So some element also give this story that this is what he saw. And of course, this is the type of guy where if you have the power to do it, this is not stealing at

00:07:50--> 00:08:26

all, if you have the power to do it without getting into any evil repercussions, for example, if you're the only owner of the household, or even in the status of use of art history, and nobody respected person, even though he would have been a child is trying to show his grandfather a lesson in the futility of shields, even if this is true. This shows you that the brothers were so evil they exaggerated it to such an extent that they said he is a thief, even though what he is doing is dour. So either it is a pure lie, that usage did not steal anything and they just invented it against him. Or it is such an exaggeration that it becomes a lie. Realize that exaggeration, if you exaggerate

00:08:26--> 00:08:35

severely, this tool becomes a lie. If you destroy it and change the facts, and you lie, and you exaggerate to such an extent that it goes against the reality, this also is counted as a lie.

00:08:36--> 00:09:09

For us useful enough to use have kept it to himself. What did he keep to himself? Why don't you get on he did not reveal it to them. What did he keep to himself? What did he not reveal to them? Some of them I think he kept his identity to himself that he could have accused them of being the real thieves. You are the real these you stole me from my father. He kept this to himself. Others say he kept the next stage of his father anthem, Chateau McKenna. He said you are the worst of the two because you are the real these will level out and then will you mess up the phone and Allah is well aware of what you describe. In other words, you are describing a lie, which you are saying is a lie.

00:09:09--> 00:09:42

It has no reality to it. So some elements say that he said the statement from Cheryl McKenna. He said this out loud to them in a vague terminology that you are the worst of the two. Well, they don't know what Yousuf is talking about but of course use of and Binyamin both know what Youssef is talking about, that you are accusing us of stealing me and my brother, whereas you are the real thieves. And you stole us from our fathers. You stole me away from my father. So who is worse of that you? You are me. And Allah is well aware of what you describe that what you're describing is a life other than I say no, he said the statements in himself. He didn't say it out loud to them.

00:09:42--> 00:09:52

Meaning that when what Allah says For example, how used to clean up see that you said kept it hidden in himself that he is referring to this next statement and some shadow mechanics will love that movie metaphor.

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

So look at the first reaction of the brothers which isn't interactive, very evil reaction to wash their hands of Binyamin to declare themselves

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

Free of Binyamin while the fee is that these rarely runs in the family his brothers told before and we have nothing to do with him.

00:10:06--> 00:10:44

And now when they ponder over what has occurred, they realize that they are in big trouble now, they have given their father an ultimate promise, the ultimate promise. So they have to do something, they can't go back without Binyamin. So this is all we are you heard as they say, oh geez. And this is the proof that many of them are used that he or use of himself is being called Aziz, whereas before his master had been called Aziz. So they say that use of took over the position of his master from this text here. They said, Oh, Aziz, Verily, he has a father, who is a fun career a very old man. Again, look, they say his father and not our father. He has a father in law, who urban shape

00:10:44--> 00:11:11

and tavira he has a father that is old and the shape for hood I had a mechanic take one of us in his place. So there's they're pointing out that his father loves him very much. He doesn't love us that much. So take one of us in his place because his father will not be able to live without Binyamin. He will be too much in grief and loss without the existence of Binyamin. So take one of us in his place. In naraka, Amina Marcin, we see you amongst those who do expand once again, the concept of a sound comes back here.

00:11:14--> 00:11:17

So use Ali Sarah was able to even through his conduct and character show

00:11:18--> 00:11:28

the brothers that even he was amongst the more senior so they testify to the fact that we see you amongst them were seen just like before them the people in the prison had also testified we see you amongst the most in need.

00:11:30--> 00:11:53

So what they are trying to say is that because you have this exam because you are so kind and generous. have sympathy upon our fathers have simply upon vineya means father who will not be able to live without him in your exam. Right exchange video mean for one of a substitute one of us in place had Binyamin and you will be doing a sign to our father. You will be treating him in a

00:11:55--> 00:12:31

good manner. But once again, it shows you the brothers didn't have some any guilt. They didn't have a man. Yes, they committed sins, but they did feel guilty now is that we can't leave Binyamin. We gave our father the ultimate promise How can we live in Yemen. And in fact, one of them is willing to stay in Egypt and become the slave. So it shows you the brothers did have some good at them. Yes, they did some evil, but they did have some good and they feel guilty now and they're trying to get out of it. So they're trying to fulfill the promise to their father, and they're trying to they're willing to even stay in place of Binyamin. All ama has a law he says I seek a large refuge, my

00:12:31--> 00:12:39

refuge is alone and not in lemon wedges in diameter. And in that we will take anyone except the one whom we found our goods with

00:12:40--> 00:13:17

in either low volume and rarely if we were to do this, we will be amongst the wrongdoers. Once again notice use of it Sam, but he doesn't use the word setup for steel. He uses the word middle aged nametags because when I mean did not steal, but the merchandise was found within me. So he says we can only take he who we found our merchandise with. He didn't say he who sold because if he said they wouldn't be correct. But what is that meaning that it's understood by the brothers the one that store again 30 or here or saying something with the double meaning to it that the brothers thought he's referring to the stealing. And of course you first use it is referring to the plot and plan

00:13:17--> 00:13:24

that he did. So he said I seek Allah's refuge. So he's trying to show His justice here. How can I take anyone except the one who's

00:13:26--> 00:13:30

except the one who actually is the belonging was found on his possession.

00:13:31--> 00:13:53

This also shows the principle principle that is well known in Islam is that every person is dealt with according to his own actions, another person will not be held accountable for someone's actions here is Binyamin, he and supposedly he has been caught with the merchandise so he is the thief. Therefore he must pay the time for that he must do the ministry for that and it is not proper or fair for any other brother to substitute in his place.

00:13:54--> 00:14:20

Also, this shows you that it is not allowed to do good to someone, if it entails doing wrong to others is a very clear principle in Islam. If you do extend to someone but in that instance, you are doing a boon to another person. This exam becomes a boon itself. Because user says if we were to do this, we would we would be evolving more even to the brother said be amongst the machine by listening to us.

00:14:21--> 00:14:35

But you said if I were to listen to you, I would become amongst the wrongdoers How is that? Okay, I'll be good being good to your father's Yes, your father is right I would be in a stand. However in vineya means right and in the right of the brother whom I took in his place there will be a boom being committed there.

00:14:37--> 00:14:48

So it is not a sense to do good to someone what it involves doing a wound to someone else. Rather the whole act becomes to understand this point, if he had obeyed the brothers.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

If you had obeyed the brother suggestions, take one of us and leave Binyamin. He might be doing if sent to the Father, but he is doing to the brothers

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

is taken in. Therefore the whole act becomes boring. And this comes into play, for example, between children, you're doing a stand to one child, you give him something extra something good something some gift is not proper unless you give it to all of your children because it is loaned to the other children. The process that I'm setting when you give a gift to once I give it to all the children. Likewise, if a person is married to more than one wife, he might be doing a stand to one wife, but at the expense of doing boon to another wife, therefore, that act itself becomes fun. Because you're not allowed to be good to someone at the expense of doing wrong or injustice to someone else.

00:15:34--> 00:16:09

Rather, you must be good to someone, and make sure that no one's rights have been transgressed. While you'll be good to that person. But if this is another point of benefit here, because use of calls himself of the body mean, if he were to do what the brother say is showing you that when you do extend to one person and the rights of another are transgressed it becomes voted for a mistake, assuming when they gave up on him. So a lot of them they tried their best, they did some more tactics as well, they begged they pleaded, but until finally they gave up from achieving anything from him. Hello, so Nigeria, they went together privately secretly, they went away from the people's

00:16:09--> 00:16:15

eyes, and they had a secret meeting that no one could hear them, are like a hero when the oldest one amongst them said

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

Adam tagami. And other company aka daddy Kumasi formula that your father has taken a severe oath from Allah, woman called Luma. For often to use it even before you did not you failed in your duty to use it.

00:16:30--> 00:17:09

So he's reminding them of their jewels in Islam, is that you gave your promise to law with regards to this brother, and now we're gonna have to leave. And before this, we also went against our father's trust and use of we promised him we are going to guard him, we promise to we will give him the utmost advice. And we went against our father's trust. So you see, the oldest one is feeling guilty, very guilty. So he says forever, I will never leave this land, I will never leave this land has then led me until my Father gives me permission. I'm going to stay in Egypt as a self exile upon myself, I'm going to punish myself. So my father knows that I am innocent of anything, let him

00:17:09--> 00:17:43

realize that I feel guilty I feel responsible for what has occurred. So I will not go back to Philistine I will stay in Egypt until my Father gives me permission. Oh, we are we have come to love what he or Allah wills for me, wills for me in the sense perhaps I can convince my them to give my brother back. And I'm able to take my brother back to for the things that Allah has built in my on my behalf. So Allah has helped me in getting my brother back, when we will try to attack you mean, and he is the best of all judges and the best of all, the only people that only the power the best of all Yanni controllers and powers. So he says eligio in a vehicle.

00:17:45--> 00:18:19

Would you be convinced by the way, the benefit, it shows you this, this is shows you the benefits of Shura, or mutual consultation is that they all got together, and they advise one another and they had a consultation here, as a lot. There's nothing wrong with regards to the believers, I'm sure all they know is that their matter is always insured or consultation, they always consult one another between themselves. Okay. And this is of the characteristics of the believer is that they always take advice from other brothers. And even if in positions of power and command, they still will have a shooter or a mutual consultation. And they will make sure that they get everyone's opinion on this

00:18:19--> 00:18:53

issue. Of course, it must be pointed out I mean, just briefly that shooter and democracy are totally antithetical there is no relationship between Shura as it is exists and Islam and the concept of democracy as it exists in the West, here and in America and other countries. There is no relationship whatsoever. Yes, there are some very small similarities, but the differences between them are so great and so fundamental that in fact, there is no comparison between the two concepts. Many of the people that our times are saying that the shoot of Islam talks about is in fact, democracy. No, it is not. Democracy, the way that exists in the Western countries, is without a

00:18:53--> 00:19:28

doubt one of the major forms of Kufa And sure, obviously, is something which is Islamic and legislated by the Sharia, and there is no relationship between the two. In a jury that'd be so he's saying Go back to your father's. He is the oldest one of them, but he is the oldest one of them. And notice, by the way, a point of benefit here. Here Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly says all attributes from the oldest one amongst them said, however, in the beginning of the story, when the oldest one the same one when he advised them to do something else, how does a law refer to who remembers how does Allah refer to him at the beginning of the surah when he advised them if you have

00:19:28--> 00:19:30

to do something, don't kill us or throw him into the world.

00:19:31--> 00:20:00

Call in one of them says, notice the beauty here now, when something bad something evil was being done, unless a title is added did not mention who it was all about. It'll make one of them say he hid the identity of the one who did that evil because there'll be no benefit gained by it. Over here, because he's doing something good something noble Allah says Hagia can beautiful. The oldest one amongst can say, and this towards the way of the progress of the levada center when someone does something

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

And there'll be no benefit in exposing him, no benefit in humiliating him and talking about him openly. He would say, why is it that some people do this and that he would not mention them by name? He would say, why is it that some people do such and such poorly, this is incorrect, this is wrong, and he would write it, but he would not mention their names. And this is the way of the Muslim, don't expose your Muslim brother, unless there is a need and a reason to if he's committing a sin, or if he's doing something that is wrong, don't expose him, keep it hidden. You are going to cause more harm by exposing him by talking about him by Ziva and Amina that if you were just to advise him

00:20:36--> 00:20:51

in a gentle manner and not mentioned his name. And this is proven here in the forum as well. On a call no minimum over there and over here Politburo one of them said verses the oldest one of them said here when he's doing the noble act, Allah subhana wa kinda mentions him by his title that he is the oldest amongst them.

00:20:57--> 00:21:06

So he think it'd be cool go back to your father's for oduya Ivana say Oh, our Father in the black restaurant, very the Your son has stolen.

00:21:07--> 00:21:37

What am I hidden in Medina, alumina, and we only bore witness we only testify to that which we knew. In other words, we knew we didn't think that your son would steal we had no idea you would steal one lacunae behalf really we did not know the knowledge of the unseen you cannot expect us to have prevented this act. Your son so obviously the bigger the brothers have in your means they are all convinced that he stole because the the item is found in Binyam his luggage. And the mean is quiet. He's not saying anything, which is obviously a sign of guilt. Because in general, when you are accused of something

00:21:38--> 00:21:56

in general, you're accused of something you are, especially in this type of situation, you're going to respond back and defend yourself. Okay. Appointed benefit I forgot to mention earlier is that here when Yusuf Ali Salaam is accused of stealing by the brothers suffered silica upon the human carbon, right use of it Sam does not defend his honor here.

00:21:58--> 00:22:35

Whereas before when he was accused of enticing the wife of azeez he defenses on it. So this shows you that it is allowed to defend your honor. And it is also allowed not to if you think the situation calls for that both are allowed, it is not obligatory upon you if you think that it will cause more harm, like use of at this point in time he defended his honor. And he said no use of did not steal the brothers would be like for you to talk about usage. How do you know anything about user and user identity would have been revealed. So the point is production mentioned this earlier. The point is that if a person is accused of something a person has been tainted or something he

00:22:35--> 00:22:59

looks at the situation and scenario, if he believes that it will do good to defend his himself. If he believes that it is a benefit to defend his honor, he is allowed to do it, like use of violence that I did when he was accused of enticing the wife of as he immediately he said, are the hero with at the amnesty. She was the one that enticed me, I didn't do anything. here when he is being accused of stealing. He remains quiet. I saw the use of capitalism.

00:23:00--> 00:23:04

He did not respond to them. Let them up. No, he didn't make it clear to them.

00:23:05--> 00:23:38

So they are saying to their fathers, and the oldest one tells them to tell your father, it's your son Muskogee. He has committed something that is wrong. And we only testify to that which we knew we all we didn't know what he would do. We thought that he's going to come with us. And he's we're going to do the trading transactions that come back, and we will protect him from any harm that we could possibly foresee. But we could not foresee that he himself would cause harm to himself by stealing. So we only bought witness we only testified to that which we knew and we didn't know the knowledge of the labor. This shows you the point of benefit here is that knowledge testimony the

00:23:38--> 00:24:00

Shahada must be based upon knowledge, because they said what Masha hidden in the very simple fact. But still, it is proven in this verse, that when you give a testimony when you give a Shahada, it must be based upon knowledge, certain knowledge, and it cannot be based upon presumption. When you testify to something, okay, you make the Shahada a testimony, it must be upon certain knowledge, I'm not sure hidden.

00:24:01--> 00:24:18

We only testified to that which we knew. And it cannot be based upon any other any no one any other presumption it must be based upon certain knowledge. And it's something that is well known in Islam in this area, but this verse also proves it. So the oldest brother is telling the the younger brothers what to say.

00:24:20--> 00:24:53

And he knows that the Father will not believe them. So he even tells them what to say after that was a little poorly attended. He couldn't if he had asked the village, ask the people of the village that we have come from the people of Egypt, right? If you don't believe us as the people everyone saw this one leader let the Abernathy Hi. If you're not going to ask the people then ask the caravan that we came with. You can imagine it must have been coming with caravans but in the old days used to travel in large groups to be safer from other dangerous so there are other people in the caravan. It's not just us 10 brothers No. And in fact nine because the funeral home has remained behind it

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

only nine brothers coming back.

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

So it's not just us that are saying this. going ask the caravan. If you don't

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

Believers, and if you don't believe that God as the people of the city,

00:25:04--> 00:25:15

well in other side of the coin, and verily we are indeed telling the truth. Okay, this shows you the permissibility of bringing extra evidence, even though you have not been asked to do so.

00:25:17--> 00:25:48

Because they said, our witnesses and our testimony is the people of the village and the caravan people. They were not asked to bring any testimony at this point, but they know that their fathers will not believe him. So they bring extra evidence to support their claim. So there is no blame on a person if he wishes to clear his name. And he immediately brings more evidence than that which is requested from him. They could have just said, You didn't mean store, but they already bought the evidence that they produce their witnesses because they knew that their fathers, their father would not believe him. So this shows you the permissibility of testifying and bringing witnesses and

00:25:48--> 00:26:16

evidences without necessarily being asked again it goes back to the situation that you are in on a bell so what Luckman Fukuyama fukumura when they came back, and they told him the nine brothers, he says, verily, a matcher has been made a beautiful view, something has been made pleasing to you. Once again. Once again, he does not believe his children. Why? Because he knows his something yummy. And he knows that Binyamin will never, ever steal.

00:26:18--> 00:26:19

The whole world can testify.

00:26:20--> 00:26:42

The caravans, the village people, their own brothers, that he knows that his son is not a thief. And this shows you the knowledge of jacobellis and the trust that he had in his children. And it also shows you the importance of good conduct and good reputation. vineya means reputation is so firm in his heart, his eyes, the whole world can testify, but he knows no vineya mean is not a thief.

00:26:43--> 00:26:59

So he blames it on the British again. And this also shows you the evilness of a bad reputation. In the past useless brothers were guilty of taking yourself away. So the father blamed them, and they had a bad reputation now their innocence, but the father still believes them.

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

Why? Because they've already established a reputation for themselves in one mode that they are doing something that is not correct. So he blames it on them, even though other people are testifying the people of the caravan and the people of the city might have testified but he blames it on them that you have done some plotting and planning because they have already disobeyed him before they've already shown him their true character and in one sense, so he blames it on him. So he says some matter has been made appeasing to you from Sabah, Rouen Jamil. So patients the beautiful patients is the best. What I will do is have a beautiful patients once again look at the patients of jacobellis

00:27:34--> 00:27:39

around his favorite son has been taken away and he hasn't seen him for 3040 years.

00:27:40--> 00:28:17

And his second favorite son has been taken a Binyamin and on top of that he's been accused of a crime which he knows he didn't do. And his oldest son which was perhaps the best son after that, because we noticed him destroy that the oldest is always giving the best advice his oldest son also is not with him now. And only nine of his children are left. Once again, he said for some reason, Jimmy the same thing he said when his first son was taken away from him, I'm going to have a beautiful patience, I will not complain to anyone. On top of that, I saw a loved one yet he and he beat him Jr. It is possible that Allah Subhana Allah will bring them all back to me, the many uses

00:28:17--> 00:28:21

and the oldest one, look at his optimism and

00:28:22--> 00:28:31

look at his email, he didn't lose any hope. He didn't get any anger or any frustration. He is content with the will of Allah and not just that he is optimistic.

00:28:32--> 00:29:10

He is in such a bad situation. Yet he is optimistic. One after the other is being taken away. But he says insha Allah, Allah will bring them all back to me. I so love when yes you need him Jimmy. So he turns to Allah subhana wa Tada. He has no other place to turn to. He turns to Allah subhana wa garden he says is possible Allah will bring them all back to me in who Allah de Mille Hakim, he is the one who is all knowledgeable and that he is I mean, he knows my situation. He knows how I feel. And he is Hakeem, he is all wise. He does everything with Hickman. He does everything with wisdom and knowledge. So whatever he is doing, he is doing with a purpose. Whatever he is doing, he is

00:29:10--> 00:29:18

doing with wisdom in his mind he wisdom in his actions, even though I might not be able to see that wisdom.

00:29:21--> 00:29:22

Here we find that

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

even though jacobellis Ron blamed them, blamed the brothers even though they were not in it, they were they were innocent of it, it shows you that sort of one, or to have some type of evil thoughts of a person is allowed when there is supporting evidence. Okay. The general rule is that you must have been for good, good thoughts for your brother and make an excuse for him all the time. But when there is strong supporting evidence, now of course, supporting evidence means that he is very, pretty much explicit or very clear that the brother or the person is guilty of whatever he has been accused of. There is strong supporting evidence for this then

00:30:00--> 00:30:34

It is possible to have to have one for the person. For example, there's an exception cinema, for example, if a person is caught any vomiting, alcoholic vomiting, why, you know, why is this sufficient evidence to accuse him of drinking wine? Many of you will say, of course it is. Some other folks have different because they said, well, there's not two witnesses there. And you might presume it's one and it's not one, but many of them, I say, No, the fact that he vomited up shows you that he in fact drank it, therefore, it is strong enough supporting evidence to punish him for that. So the point here is that superbetter having evil thoughts about the Muslim for about a Muslim

00:30:34--> 00:31:09

brother is allowed when there is a strong supporting evidence, what was the supporting evidence here? The supporting evidence has many number one what they did to use if Arsenal and the father knows that use of was not killed because of the shirt and because of the dream. Number two, yeah, yeah, and number two is Binyamin. And the father knows that Binyamin is innocent because he knows Binyamin will not steal. He knows Binyamin so well, he is certain that something is wrong here. Now obviously he doesn't realize that it is used if it Sam who is doing this plot and plan and not the brothers, but he knows that something is amiss Something is wrong. Binyamin would never see and this

00:31:09--> 00:31:15

is enough of a supporting evidence for him to deny what the brothers claim happened is that that he stole and he was caught by that.

00:31:16--> 00:31:21

So he blames the brothers for that. What well and when he turned away from them,

00:31:22--> 00:31:25

he turned away from them because he did not want to show them his grief

00:31:26--> 00:31:37

is he must have been his grief has to be overwhelming now, Binyamin also it will not come back to him. He is now a slave in Egypt. He sent us have gone missing 3040 years ago we don't even know if he's alive or not.

00:31:38--> 00:32:19

So he turns away from them and he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala what father Yeah, SF Allah use, he says, Oh, woe to me is useful. How much I miss Yusuf Subhana Allah, his oldest son and binyomin have taken every ticularly right now, but his heart is still attached to use. His heart is still attached to use. Alas, his use of SSI other use for the last use of his tummy will be up but I know whom it is because him and his eyes became white with grief, beautiful, poetic way to describe his blindness. His eyes became white because every person's eyes are black. But because he cried so much and because he was full of grief so much Allah subhana wa tada says, his eyes became white. In other

00:32:19--> 00:32:51

words, he could not see any more minimalism because of his sorrow. Well, what Calvin and COVID means he was suppressing his grief, he was holding it back. And this is the way of the movement, he holds back his grief, he does not let it out and show everyone else about it. Now the throughout these years 30 4050 as many years have gone by, he is suppressing his grief, his loss for use of and when Binyamin and the oldest one are taken away, the first thing that comes out here remember is useless now, even though Binyamin was still so beloved to him. Still here members useful.

00:32:52--> 00:33:04

Yeah SFR they use. So this shows you that he turned away from them because he did not want to show his his crying and his sadness to them. Okay. It also shows you that you cry is not a sin.

00:33:05--> 00:33:33

You can weep and it is not a sin. When the Prophet son Ibrahim, the prophets of Allah, I defended his son Ibrahim passed away. The Prophet Christ so much that his beard became wet. And the Sahaba when they saw him cry, they cried as well. And they asked him out as sort of a joke, right? He says crying is a sign of mercy in the hearts. What I have prohibited prohibited you from is to will to scream out and to tear the clothes, extreme signs. But the crying is a mercy from the heart.

00:33:34--> 00:34:10

So crying and extreme sorrow and grief in and of itself. This is a sign of mercy. But to go more than this, to curse to get angry to beat the walls to tear your clothes apart as they were doing Jamelia. This is what is haram. This is what is of the signs of javeria. So the point is here, extreme sorrow which is present here. Extreme grief, does not go against words The man is Yakov, the prophet of Allah and his son, his most beloved son Yusuf, who hasn't seen for 30 years he is still loving him and missing him. And now Binyamin on top of that, and now the oldest one on top of that.

00:34:12--> 00:34:42

And Allah subhana wa tada says, well, Bill, but I now who may not have arisen, his eyes became white because of his grief. So he had a vision, and so much so that he would cry so much that he became blind, work agreement all of this time he was suppressing that grief, he wasn't showing the people. And this is the way of the moment. He doesn't turn to the other people. The perfect moment. The one who has completed his email perfected his email, he doesn't seek to gain pity and compassion from the created because this is of no use. He turns to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah alone.

00:34:44--> 00:34:55

All with a lovely look at the brothers now. They said by Allah, just that with that guru use Are you going to continue to think about usage we just told you about Vinnie I mean and the oldest one and you go back to use it.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

And look here now the point of benefit here Subhana Allah

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

The plot of the club is in fact worth 180 degrees against.

00:35:05--> 00:35:13

What did they Why did they take us away in the first place? Because they wanted the father to forget about us, so that he could love them over us.

00:35:14--> 00:35:20

And look at what happens. In fact, he loves us even more now. And for the last 3040 years, you're still thinking about yourself.

00:35:21--> 00:35:27

So look at how shavon tries to get you to do something, and you think that your goal will be reached through this harm, yet.

00:35:28--> 00:36:07

Yet it is in fact, the exact opposite. That will occur to you. Because she finds promises are always false. She finds life or always used to entice you. She farts it will say on the day of judgment in the la vida Kumar that help Verily Allah promised you a true promise. Well, I took them from for us to come. And I promised you but I went against my promise. When that kind of era come in so far. I had no power over you. I didn't control you. In and out you confess digitally, except that I called you. And you responded to me. Saturday morning, don't blame me. Don't get angry at me. We're Lumo and full circle. blame yourself.

00:36:08--> 00:36:34

She taught himself is saying this as per the testimony of the honor the Day of Judgment, a lot of promise to and he was truthful. I promised you I broke my promise with you. I didn't have any power over you. So don't get angry at me. Don't get angry at me blame yourself. Don't blame me. All I did was I called you and you obeyed me. And look, you now the police's use of the reason they did what they did, it works against them 180 degrees.

00:36:35--> 00:36:55

Here, the father of use of is still Yahoo is still attached to use. So they get angry. And they say By Allah, are you going to continue to remember use a hat that they're going to hold off until you go senile, and you have a gun? You're going to be alive but you can't operate properly, you're going to lose your mind. Oh, took one minute Hi, Nikki, or you are going to be those who are destroyed and die in this grief.

00:36:56--> 00:37:11

In other words, what is the use of this grief of use? So they are still jealous of us. Still, they are all grown up now. And they did their deed of old decades ago. But still, the jealousy of users is alive in their hearts because their goal was not met.

00:37:12--> 00:37:54

The reason that they took use of it was not fulfilled. The father is still thinking of yourself. So they said you will continue to remember users until you go senile until you go crazy. Or until you will die. So when they when he heard him say that, he said in school Vesti workers need a lot. He said, I complain. I only complain to my bestie Betsy humans like ramblings are my uncontrollable matters well whose knee my grease to Allah Well hello mean Allah He Malika animal and I know from Allah, that which you do not know. So here he is saying that I am not complaining to you. I don't need this comment from you. I'm not complaining to you that you have to give any comments on this.

00:37:54--> 00:38:10

I'm complaining to Allah subhana wa Tada. I don't desire your pity and compassion. Rather, I'm only turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala in them, I only turn to Allah subhana wa tada my best seed by uncontrollable matters that which I cannot control. For example, the statement that just came out, yeah.

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

It just came out of him. He didn't want the brothers to hear. That's why he turned away from him. And the tears that he's coming and the grief that he's feeling. Allah describes it as Kelvin. He was controlling that grief. And imagine if Allah subhanaw taala describing his grief as being controlled, how much control that is, must determine how much hidden must have been. So when he hears them give that comment. He says I'm not complaining to you. I don't want your pity and your mercy. Rather I'm only complaining to Allah subhana wa Tada. And I know from Allah that what you do not know. In other words, I know that eventually I will see Yusuf and his brothers, because of the

00:38:47--> 00:38:54

dream he remembers the dream. I know from Allah that which you do not know. This also shows you the journey the story of Jacobian use of really shows you

00:38:57--> 00:39:05

that Allah subhana wa tada will test every single person, no matter how pious he is, no matter how evil he is.

00:39:06--> 00:39:11

And in fact, the more he man a person has, the more he will be tested.

00:39:12--> 00:39:35

This is as soon as Allah subhana wa Tada. The more he mind a person has the more he'll be tested by Allah yakko has gone through so much grief. And he is one of the most noble prophets of Allah. So to his use of as we go through his life story we see so many griefs happening to him his own brothers beating him and throw him in the wall and tying him up, tearing her shirt off of him, selling him into slavery.

00:39:37--> 00:39:59

Going up as a slave, then the temptations of the wife of Isaiah then being thrown into prison. All of these tests all of these into hairs. It shows you them or believer when you are faced with the trial. Know that you are not the first one that is going through a trial. When you are faced with a hardship. Look at those before you whom Allah subhanho wa Taala has tested. Rarely they were better than you. They had more demands.

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

You take solace from them, take comfort from them,

00:40:04--> 00:40:15

realize that you are not the first traversing the path of agony and hardship. And know that the fruits of this path are why Allah subhana wa tada is testing you, whatever the test might be,

00:40:16--> 00:40:25

whether it is financial, whether it is physical, whether it is emotional, whether it is familiar or societal, whatever the problems might be,

00:40:26--> 00:41:01

realize that you are not the first that is being tested by Allah Subhana Allah. So, go back to the stories of use of an apple, go back to the stories of the prophets of the love, it was time to go back to the stories of the pious people before you and see how Allah tested them. Remember, this is this tool is being revealed as a conflict with the Prophet of the Lord is that there are people before you that have gone through similar things. They to have lost loved ones here, the prophet doesn't have a deja Busan, if you are not the first one to lose a beloved person. The story of Yaakov should bring all of this out in all of us. Whenever anyone is listening or dies, let us

00:41:01--> 00:41:34

remember the pain of Yahoo. Let us remember the pain of the prophets listening when he lost Khadija, and when he lost episodic and when he lost his son to put on him, we are not the first night we will be the last. And in fact, the more Eman that we have the word Allah will test us as the prophets of the love, it says inauthentic it that Allah will test a person according to his demand. The more he man, the more he will be tested and the less human The less you will be tested. And this is the mercy of Allah. Now you can leave alone after an encounter with Allah will not burden a soul more than what you can do. So the more email he has, the more tests you can view. And the less email he

00:41:34--> 00:41:54

has, the less tests you can do. So whenever and we'll see but afflicts you, and this is mentioned by him and others, turn to Allah and thankfulness that Allah is testing you, and through this test, inshallah he is raising your ranks, realize that this test is a means of cleansing your sins, it is a means of being raised in the sight of Allah subhana wa sallam.

00:41:55--> 00:41:57

So if you realize this,

00:41:58--> 00:42:18

then your attitude towards this test will change totally, you'll become patient, you'll become content, you will turn to Allah subhana wa Tada, you will not turn to the people, you will not get angry at the hunter of Allah, you will accept whatever Allah has will for you. And you will realize that for sure, the fruits of this test are better than the test itself.

00:42:20--> 00:42:46

But if you don't feel like this, then this test will in fact be in evidence against you. If you complain to the people, and you turn away from the remembrance of Allah. And worse than this, you get angry at Allah subhana wa Tada. It was opposite of Allah. And you say, why did this occur to me, I did not deserve this. And you challenge the decree of Allah, deliberately this test is something that Allah subhanaw taala is using to lower this person's rank, and to increase him in his punishment on the Day of Judgment.

00:42:47--> 00:43:22

So how do you know if the test is for you or against you? In Sharla? One of the strongest signs is your response to that test? How do you know that this test is actually a means to purify you are a means of punishing you. Your attitude towards that test your attitude towards what has occurred, and we'll see what happens to you. How do you respond how you react to that loss, even if you react with a man like that? was sober, like Apple did with contentment, like Apple did, by turning to Allah Subhana Allah like Apple did. by leading the creation, you don't care about the creation,

00:43:23--> 00:43:32

like Apple did. This is one of the strongest signs inshallah, that this test is in fact, a means of raising your ranks, a purifying you have forgiving yourself.

00:43:33--> 00:43:54

But if you react like the Manasa own and the co founder and the facade react by ranting and raving, by getting angry by complaining by seeking pity from the created, then most likely, most likely, this test is in fact a means of punishment. This test is in fact a means of lowering a person's rights in this dunya and the

00:43:55--> 00:44:09

So, here's your hosting in the Mirage robot diva who's Neela I am only complaining of my ramblings and my knee grief to Allah and I know from Allah that what you're not know Yeah, they need you. Oh my son is

00:44:10--> 00:44:42

such a has so many uses for what has Sesa means find out by any means possible by speech, by hearing by seeing search for users and his brothers when they assume your phone and do not give up hope of the mercy of Allah do not give up hope of the victory of a lot Enola Gay as in Iraq in the local capital. There will be no one gives up hope of the victory of a lot except those people who are just believers in Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:44:44--> 00:44:47

Look here at the amazing amount of jacobellis.

00:44:49--> 00:44:51

He has just been informed of the loss of

00:44:52--> 00:44:55

bieniemy that he will not be a slave in Egypt

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

and that the oldest son will remain in exile there.

00:45:00--> 00:45:06

Yusuf has been missing for the last 30 years at least. Look at his optimism and a love affair with a man in a law.

00:45:07--> 00:45:45

And if any one of us has gone through a trial and an affliction, even if it's for a few weeks, as some sort of argument goes down the yellow Why aren't you responding to my Allah What is happening? I'm praying to you so much. Here is Yahoo for 3040 years making dua to Allah subhana wa Tada. And now he says, Go out and search for use of intangible assets when use there is still hope in his heart, there is still a man in his heart. And so certainly as he tells his children go out, search for use of you will find it. Look at it. Imagine Allah subhana wa Tada. And he says, he tells them and he is the father. And he is telling them that they as a matter of Allah, don't give up hope of

00:45:45--> 00:45:56

the victory and the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah He is the one that has gone through much more than his children. Yet he is the one encouraging he is the one lifting up their spirits. Yes.

00:45:57--> 00:46:34

Now I see as a middle finger, don't give up hope of the mercy and the help of Allah subhana wa Tada. Why because jacoba knows the mercy of Allah jacoba knows the help of Allah. Therefore How can you give up hope in Allah subhana wa tada when he is a rough man and when he is over food and over for us when he is at the lab, when all of these names and characteristics of Allah subtitle with data, which are well known to Yahoo, what Allah subhana wa tada has these names and characteristics and attributes, how can you give a point of the mercy and the victory of a love and that is why Yahoo said, no one can give up hope of the mercy and victory of a lot except the capital, the one who

00:46:34--> 00:46:47

doesn't realize his word, only the one who rejects the needs and attributes of a lot such as the person he is the one who will give up hope at the mercy of Allah. As for the moment, no matter what his situation is, no matter how

00:46:49--> 00:46:55

they will come after you are patient, if you are not patient, the victory will not come.

00:46:56--> 00:47:36

So, the victory is this is authentic, it is a process of victory comes with patience. So when I will see that afflicts you realize that if you want to have victory from this masiva Have patience, and the foliage is with the curve, the ease, the good situation will come after the cut the difficult situation. So in them loose, loose rock in mahasiswa, rarely after easy will be after hardship there will be ease after hardship there will be ease. This is the pseudonym of Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah tests you with good and evil in them and lukovitch surely will hide if it is too good and then with evil. He did not test the person with evil throughout his whole life with bad things with no

00:47:36--> 00:47:57

zebra throughout his whole life. And this is the consolation to the prophets of the Lord is that yes, you have lost Khadija. Yes, you have lost a robotic. Yes, the people I've met have rejected you. Yes, the people of five have thrown you out of the city with stones and rocks and children, but does not give up hope of the mercy of Allah do not give up hope of the victory of Allah subhana wa tada Verily, victory lies to you.

00:47:59--> 00:48:34

And this is exactly what happened to the prophets of the lovers and like we said destroy was revealed at one of the lowest points, the most difficult times of the season, towards the end of the Mexican stage right after he had been rejected by the people of life. And this was the most difficult thing to him. Like we said the hadith of Ayesha when she asked that, what was the Was there any? Was there a time that was worse than the battle ahead for you? He said yes. And then he mentioned the incident of fire. So this story is meant to cheer up the prophets of alarm incident to give him consolation. And hearing the story of Yakov we see why that Jacobi faces so much trials and

00:48:34--> 00:49:11

tribulations but he is still optimistic and alone. And he knows that they will find you and so searching as you look, he says go out and search for us. It's as if you find him behind the woods there just quote and look you will find him and don't give up hope of that oh Sheila the mercy and the blessings of Allah subhana wa tada because Allah subhana wa tada is so great, so merciful, that any movement must have his mercy and hope in Him and it is only the captain because he doesn't know and he doesn't believe in Allah will reject to the mercy of Allah subhanahu wa taala so they left their houses and they went back to Egypt because that's the only place they can go they know that

00:49:11--> 00:49:22

Binyamin and the oldest one is there so the entered in for that matter pero la when they entered in upon him although Yeah, they said oh has he miss Santa Elena

00:49:24--> 00:49:59

a great affliction has afflicted us and our families Why is it now the divide in which we have bought you very poor merchandise we don't have much money anymore. We're living in great poverty so oh phenol case give us the full measurement. We're giving you X amount give us the full amount for this or we're giving you what the subject is gonna give us more than this as well. Give us a sort of a more than this over what what good we have come with in the last year just dealing with them for the team. Verily Allah subhana wa tada will reward those who give in charity. So here now they are relying on useless general

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

They say we have not come with very many goods. We have not come with good quality products. However,

00:50:06--> 00:50:20

give us full regiment and Yanni casado carlina, give us product on top of this. Verily Allah Subhana Allah Allah will reward those who give sadaqa so use obsess on the hell Adam to now Yousuf reveals himself.

00:50:21--> 00:50:34

And the various By the way, the first verse here the verse before this is that it is allowed to inform others about your problems. without complaining you inform them if there is a need to. Because now there is a need, they don't have enough food.

00:50:35--> 00:50:42

So it is allowed to inform others about your problems when there is any. But if there is no need, then this is a type of complaining to the creation which should be avoided.

00:50:44--> 00:51:19

Therefore, there is no need for you to complain to the children, what are the children going to do for it. But here, the children of Yahoo, the premises you use if they complain to us, we are in a great difficult situation, we're in great poverty. Why? Because there's something to be gained here. They went to get some more food for their families, they bought merchandise. So they show them this merchant merchandise. And they asked us of all us to fulfill us the measure of this merchandise and give us extra candy. Now users cannot take it anymore. He sees the situation his brothers are in and his heart becomes soft for him. Even though it was the same brothers, that sold him into slavery

00:51:19--> 00:51:53

that he and he tried to you know, kill him or they're thinking of killing him, and they throw them into the world. And they took him away from his father, the use of aluminium cannot bear to see his brothers in this pain and this anguish. So He reveals Himself to them. Some of you might say that he was wearing a certain type of clothes or garments and he took that off like the the crown or the certain outer garments to show them this was useful. So they recognize us and he says, or the highlight him, he says Did you know what you did to us and his brother when you were genuine? So this is a time to reveal his identity to them. What did they do to his brother? They lied about

00:51:53--> 00:52:27

because you said Do you know what you did to us and his brother meaning Binyamin? They lied about the mean by saying that any if he stole that his brother before him stored as well, and obviously this is a lie. And they also did boo to Binyamin by taking us away from him because use of a mini me with a full brothers together. So the room that they did to the Binyamin was that they took us away from him. So he reminds them that and also of course they wrote to him like some of the random assets and the journey to Egypt and they were very rude to him. So this is the room that they did to bring me so use it reminds them Do you know what you did to use him and his brother while you were

00:52:27--> 00:52:33

jarhead or while you were ignorant. Now here you can take this while you were ignorant.

00:52:36--> 00:52:41

To be a rebuke, or to be an excuse. You can take it as both.

00:52:42--> 00:53:07

You can take it that Yusef is rebuking them he is getting angry with them while you were ignorant you did this or you can also take as an excuse that use of is finding an excuse for them. You were ignorant of this you are just you don't you did something that you should not have done and both of the meanings are possible here. Now once he says this, obviously the brothers recognize use of it set up for by whatever he did, and no one knows what they did to use it except use. They were no witnesses except the brothers themselves.

00:53:08--> 00:53:13

So they say all in Nicola and they use they say are you indeed user Are you use of

00:53:15--> 00:53:16

Allah Allah Yusuf?

00:53:17--> 00:53:54

He said I am used to and this is my brother and you must have brought his brother out at this time for the men in the law why they know Allah subhana wa tada has shown us great favor. In Noma yet Geoffrey West, but he will have support and patience for in the law you will do your mercy, Allah subhana wa tada does not cause to wait the edges or the reward of those who practice their stand once again the concept of a stance or practicing good comes back here. So Alice has a use of Alice Anam reveals himself his identity and the identity of his brother. And you can imagine the shock of the brothers that are coming to this person so many times for food, and it never occurs to them that

00:53:54--> 00:53:54

this is useful.

00:53:56--> 00:54:09

For us, it reminds them fundamental law then Allah has indeed favored us over you. Because of our Eman because of our suffer because of our suffer because of our son. I have become the Minister of Egypt and you have remained in your situation and poverty law.

00:54:10--> 00:54:34

So Allah subhana wa tada has shown us great, if not a great rewards me upon me and my brother, rarely who has he who has taqwa and patience of Allah than Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala will not cause to waste the reward of those who do. And this is the key theme of the whole story as well is that those that have in mind those that have Taqwa, Allah will reward them in this dunya and Indeed,

00:54:35--> 00:54:59

those who are patient from the trials and the tribulations that afflict them, Allah subhana wa tada will give them the victory in this dunya and in the Acura aliotta La Ilaha Asada La La Nina. They said by Allah, Allah has chosen you above us. Allah has taken you above us. He has preferred you over us. We're in cannot afford to eat and assurity we have made a mistake.

00:55:00--> 00:55:40

So Allah has chosen you above us because of your email because of your support and of assurity. We are amongst those who made a mistake, they admitted their mistake. And now that they discovered the identity abusive, it seems that it was best that they repented totally from their evil. And they admit that yes, we did commit the crime. We were guilty of it. We were those who committed the mistake on a lotta three body coming home. He said, there will be no blame upon you today. Yo, Allahu Allah will forgive you. What do you mean? And He is the Most Merciful of those that have mercy. So he says this in the third person that that vivatic monomial through local, he says that

00:55:40--> 00:55:51

there is no blame upon you. He doesn't even say I don't blame you. In order for them not to feel anything bad. He says it in the third person neutral. There is no bream upon you. Look again, use of luck is perfect.

00:55:52--> 00:56:26

He is not even making his brothers feel guilty in this manner, that I don't cause you to have any guilty conscience. No, he says there is no blame upon you. And then he says Allah will forgive you. Yes, it'll load up which is a statement of fact. He doesn't say May Allah forgive you. You think Allah will forgive you Why? Firstly, he has seen that they are repented for their death, what for what they have done. Secondly, it was used as a boon that they did they did want to use. So if user forgive them that Allah subhanaw taala would also forgive them. As you know, when you do boom to a Muslim brother, right? Here you have two things to think about. If you do something that is a sin

00:56:26--> 00:57:05

between you and Allah, you only have to think about it obviously that the repentance to Allah and the mercy of Allah. But if you do limb to a Muslim brother, by lying about him, or stealing his money, or shedding his blood, or hitting him or slandering him or backbiting him, or anything you do limb to your Muslim brother, or sister, right, you do blunting him or her in this case, you have to worry about that this person forgives you else you will not be forgiving, even if Allah forgives his rights that you have, yet in the mercy and in the justice of a lot on the Day of Judgment, the person whom you did injustice to will be able to extract that injustice from you. He'll be able to

00:57:05--> 00:57:13

take some of your good deeds or give you some of his bad deeds. The currency on that day will not be in Townsend dollars it will be in has nothing to do and

00:57:15--> 00:57:43

therefore use of Allison since He forgive the brothers, and he knew that they repented because of their sins. He said when he said In other words, we have committed a sin. Therefore he made a statement of fact, which is more eloquent, Young's little local, Allah will indeed forgive you. He didn't say May Allah forgive you. It says Allah will forgive you a statement of fact because he himself forgave them immediately, one who are humble Rahimi, and He is the Most Merciful of those that have mercy. And the same verse was used by the prophets of the love audio sentence.

00:57:45--> 00:57:46

When you entered Mecca,

00:57:48--> 00:58:03

when the people of Mecca and they all came to him, this was the same people, the same community, the same, any society that had rejected him that had tortured his companions and even him that had boycotted him for three years without even food and water in the valley. Now, when he enters Mecca,

00:58:05--> 00:58:11

he asked them, oh people of Mecca, what do you think I will do with you? What do you think I will do with you?

00:58:12--> 00:58:22

The same people that tortured him and his followers and tried to kill him and his followers. They said, You our brother, and an older brother, and a son and a noble son.

00:58:23--> 00:58:59

They're reminding him that you are relative here, because he is the dictator and they are the captured. So they prefer His mercy. So he says the exact same statement in the chemical conquest of Makkah, Lazarus revalue, there is no blame upon you. Yo. Kumar. The same brush here that used to be used for his brothers who tried to capture him and they captured him and they threw him away in the in the in the world. And they did so much to him. The process of the law why they sent him use the same verse when it came to the people of Mecca, that he also local Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive you were out from a rocky me in heaven because he has a

00:59:00--> 00:59:02

go with this shirt of mine.

00:59:03--> 00:59:06

If he had to go with the shirt of mine

00:59:08--> 00:59:18

which IV fluid upon the face of my father, yeah, people see it. Oh, he will come back seeing again. What do we need the Polycom ajmeri and bring me your family all of them together.

00:59:20--> 00:59:28

I have so here again, the theme of the shirt comes into play. In the beginning the shirt prove the innocence of food the fact that Jesus was alive and that the

00:59:29--> 01:00:00

wolf had not eaten him and also then the shirt food innocence of use of that he did not try to attempt the rest of it. And here again the shirt is used to bring back the site that took away that it took away by the loss of use of In other words, the loss of use of was what caused the optical blind. Now this shirt of use of will be used as an antidote as a cure to the disease or the problem of that blindness. And this also shows you that any type of sickness must be cured with some type of effort some type of mental

01:00:00--> 01:00:36

medicinal effects, I do look here or I need to add to a lot or even the modern medicines of our times. In other words, Allah subhana wa Tada, like the pharmacist that himself has not revealed any disease except that he has also revealed the cure to that disease. There is not a single disease that is known to man, except that there is a cure for that disease. But like the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, said Anima have an Anima Jayla Hammond Shahada, he who knows it knows it and who doesn't know it is ignorant of it. So, it is possible mankind might be ignorant of the cure, but there is definitely a cure. And here the point that is any beings you can benefit from it is that there is

01:00:37--> 01:01:11

the antidote to the disease will always be the opposite of that disease. In other words, the loss of use of will was what caused Yakov to go blind. Now, by remembering use of and by smelling use again and by being able to see the shirt of use of the same shirt that caused him to go blind in the beginning, which was the shirt full of blood that was you can say that the metaphorical thing that caused him to go blind because that started the whole story of the loss of use of now the shirt the same shirt will be used, the shirt of use of will be used to bring back the sight which eventually which was taken away by the loss of use of so like the shirt was what started the blindness here.

01:01:11--> 01:01:17

Now the shirt will end that blindness, so the antidote to any disease is the opposite of the disease itself.

01:01:18--> 01:01:39

What am I a facilitator is when the caravan came, departed from Egypt, when it departed from Egypt, all of whom their father said and for the screen in Nila energy to reuse, verily, I am indeed smelling the scent of use of I can smell him coming to me. The caravan is departing from Egypt.

01:01:41--> 01:02:17

And yeah, hope says this instead of saying that verily, I can smell the smell of use of Lola and Tiffany dawn word not for the fact that you will consider me having gone crazy to fund me Do you will consider me that I have gone crazy. In other words, this is I am certain, but I know that you are going to consider that I've gone crazy enough that I can even smell use of coming. So look at what Allah subhanaw taala blessed him with the knowledge of Yahoo. And the only that Allah gave him the good tidings before it occurred, that he could smell the smell of juicer so he's getting optimistic, but he knows that his children will consider him as crazy and they will ridicule him. So

01:02:17--> 01:02:55

they blame so he blamed them that verily I can smell the smell of use of but I know that you're going to say that I am going crazy or I am going senile or lose a lot in Nicoletti radical movie. And his rumors and his statement was confirmed, correct? That they said by a law you are in your old misguided ways, misguided ways of, of loving yourself. Okay, remember the same statement here? They said about radical funding. dibala. They said the same thing in the beginning of the surah that in a barbaric Ebola movie, our Father is in extreme misguidance. Once again, they use the same phrase over here that you are in your old misguidance the misguidance of loving use of too much

01:02:56--> 01:03:01

saddam and Jaya al Bashir, when the Bashir is the bearer of glad tidings came,

01:03:02--> 01:03:25

I will call who Allah was he, he threw it upon his face. And scholars have various they say that the same brother, who was the most evil of them, who tore the shirt from Yusuf and kill the animal and for the blood on it and took that shirt to Yahoo in the beginning of the story. Now the same brother volunteered and wanted to take this shirt to his father, to get rid of and to

01:03:27--> 01:04:03

seek forgiveness for what he had done by doing the opposite of what he had done in the beginning, just like he had taken the shirt of blood to use. Now he wanted to take the shirt that would prove use of was alive and it will bring his father's back. So Allah Kazim Alba she is the bearer of glad tidings of Allah which he threw it upon his face for tat double zero, immediately he became mean again. So the cure and the antidote worked and obviously this is from the miracles of Allah subhana wa tada that use of knew that this would cure his father, Allah, Allah, Allah. He said Didn't I tell you in the alumina Lonnie malita animal that I know from Allah, that what you did not know

01:04:04--> 01:04:41

that I knew that Yousuf was alive, that I knew that I smelled use of coming, that I knew that you will eventually come back with use of and you will find him That's why I told you to go out and search for him. So do not tell you that I know from Allah, that which you do not know because I'm a prophet of Allah. Fallujah, Adana, they said oh, our fathers is still Salinas. robina. Yani seek forgiveness for us for our sins. In Khulna hopping in verily we committed a mistake. So once again, they admitted their mistake, they realize that they committed an error, and they seek forgiveness from their fathers and they say, oh, our Father seek forgiveness for us. So this shows you that it

01:04:41--> 01:05:00

is allowed to ask someone else to seek forgiveness for you. It is allowed to ask someone else as long as that other person is living and in front of you, if he is dead, always going to become [???]. And likewise, if he is not in front of us, and in the sense you cannot communicate with him, not in front of you, meaning even if you talk on the phone, I'm sorry, but like if you just crowd to someone and he's in an

01:05:00--> 01:05:25

other country and you think that he can hear you, you are activating powers of Yanni in order to hear or will be or as close to him, therefore this falls under [???]. But if the person is alive and you are communicating directly with him by any means, it is allowed or permissible to ask him to make a draft for you to ask him to seek forgiveness for you. And especially if it is the person that you have wronged, especially this makes it even more wiser for the person that you have wronged you to go to him back. This is why

01:05:26--> 01:05:36

they turned to the Apple because they went against your hopes, right? They had their father was the one that they sinned against. Also, this shows you that there is hope for the sending person. And this

01:05:37--> 01:06:07

the one who came at since the evil person that the fact that when he reads the story, he too should become optimistic. When the brothers of Yaakov, the brother, children of Yaakov and the brothers of use, when they can become better when they have hope, when they can turn over a new leaf, then how about other people, lesser than them? Whatever sins you have done, it cannot be as bad as the crimes of the children of yaku. When they took their own younger brother, the one that they fall in love the most. And they tied him up and threw him into a well.

01:06:08--> 01:06:41

It couldn't be as bad as that, if Allah can repent upon them, and if they can become better. And how about us sitting here? And how about the other Muslims would they not have hope of the mercy of Allah cannot achieve the mercy of Allah. Eventually they to turn over a new leaf, they become better, and they seek forgiveness from us. And they seek forgiveness from their father, and they seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is a very big hope for the evil person to foster, the woman who is committing sins. When he reads the story, let him remember the sins that the children of your home did to Jaco.

01:06:43--> 01:06:55

And let him remember his own sins as well. And not give a pope of the mercy of a lot, but with the condition that he commits the property over he performance the property, which means that he leaves this in that he is doing, and he turns to Allah for forgiveness.

01:06:56--> 01:07:32

So they call it a sofa, cellfood locomobi, the father says that, I will, I will ask forgiveness for you from my Lord. They say that he said this in the future, in the sense he wanted to ask in the last third of the night, so he said I will ask in the future. And this meant he delayed the two hours to the last third of the night. And as we know, the last third of the night is a time which the two hours are accepted by a lesser partner with the other in who who will have a photo Rahim. He is the one that is the most forgiving and the Most Merciful. And this also shows you that the ruling on a person, like we said, is not based upon the deficiencies that were present at the beginning of

01:07:32--> 01:08:04

his life, but rather the perfections that were present at the end of his life. So when you look at a person, and you're writing a biography of a person or something, you don't look at the evil that he committed and you pronounce a word on based on that know, you look at the good that he did at the end of his life, was he a good Muslim at the end of his life, the ruling of a person is based upon the end portion of his life, if he was a moment his whole life. And a few months a few years before he died, he became a capital A as a villa or mana for more attacks or evil person, then the verdict is on the end. The ruling is based on the end of a person's life. Likewise, the opposite is true. If

01:08:04--> 01:08:36

a person was evil and in pious throughout his life, and eventually he became a good Muslim and a pessimist in worshipping Allah. Once again, the verdict is based on the ending of a person's life. Here the children of iacob did so many evil so many crimes. Yet in the end, they occupied this degree status. And users dream that they were stars, he calls them stars, which means that they will not just any person they will actually reach the level of the mind in such a way that they can be called stars. Now, there are shining bright, even though not as bright as the sun and moon for his parents, his father and mother. Still there are bright stars in the skies. So it shows you that they

01:08:36--> 01:08:49

eventually became very good Muslims. And in fact, according to one opinion of the Roma, they actually became prophets towards the end of their lives. They actually became prophets and this is one opinion and Allah Subhana Allah knows best with that we will

01:08:51--> 01:09:04

open the floor for questions inshallah, they will finish up the surah when we come back around 230 or three whenever we come back from the janazah. inshallah, I just like to mention here before we open the floor for questions that really in this

01:09:05--> 01:09:27

incident that has occurred today, the death of Sr holliger. Very early. This is an incident for all of us to ponder over and to think about. This was a sister here, in the prime of her youth, the prime of her youth. She had how many one or two children, two children, two young children. She wasn't the primary still in her 20s and she got diagnosed with cancer.

01:09:29--> 01:09:59

And Danny today, the news came that she passed away last week is about the will of any other human being in that era. We're in Nigeria, Roger, very whatever Allah wills occurs and whatever he does not work does not occur. So we accepted this and let every single person here ponder over this reality. She died of a disease which is typically not count and young people that have cancer. And she's added an age once again within which many people think that they are going to live forever at this age in this time of their youth. So that is realize the death

01:10:00--> 01:10:09

is around the corner, that is going to come to us at any time, it doesn't knock on the door. It doesn't tell us it doesn't seek permission to enter the angel that will come to us when we least expect it.

01:10:11--> 01:10:47

And the reason really, this is even more amazing is that I have just come from Toronto, there was a youth camp over there. And Subhanallah the day of the camp, the day that we this is three, three days ago, four days ago, there was a an old man there, I mean, 60s or 70s. And he he came just to spend some time with the youth, and subparallel in front of all of us, he passed away rights in India, he passed away, he laid down and he felt some type of headache, and he passed away right then and there. And it was something that, you know, literally, I was giving a lecture in the camp. And he was sitting right there and participating in the lecture in front of all of the children, giving

01:10:47--> 01:11:22

the responses to the questions, being very enthusiastic, and very interactive with the children. And everyone used to love him used to be very kind and nice to the children. And a lot of parents are worried that he died right then and there. And in front of the children in front of everyone there, he passed away. And right now I'm coming to England and I hear that somehow that's the sister holiday whom I read the emails I had read about her, she also has passed away. So death comes to you unexpectedly. It comes to you when you least expected let us ponder over this fact. And that each and every person asked himself, am I prepared to meet a loss of Hannah what Allah? Suppose my death?

01:11:22--> 01:11:25

Would you come to me today? How would I respond to

01:11:26--> 01:11:29

a minus needs to meet him? Am I ready to meet

01:11:30--> 01:11:48

the sins that I have committed? What am I going to say to a lot of them, the good that I have left and not done, tomorrow will not occur now. realize that there will be a time we will go to bed at night, we'll put our nice thick blankets on top of us. And the next night

01:11:49--> 01:12:06

our grief will be our bed, there will be a time when the last night will come and we will not realize it as the last night. We will not think it is the last night. There'll be a time we'll wake up in the morning, I will see the nice bright, shining sun outside. And the next day after that we will never see the sun forever

01:12:07--> 01:12:43

being in the grace. So that comes to us. Like I said without permission without knocking. It comes to us unexpectedly. He was the sister in the prime of her youth in the time of her youth panel, and her husband and she left behind her husband and children. And we pray that Allah subhanaw taala gives them patience. Because this is really an I encourage all of you to go to the the husbands and offering their condolences and any help that you can give him even if it's just a good word, even if it's just something that will cheer him up. Rarely, he must be going through a lot of pain and anguish now and remind him of the patients that he should have remind him of the stories of Jacobian

01:12:43--> 01:13:10

user as well, that he is not the first one that has been tested in this way, and he will not be the last one and remind him of the patience of Allah that insha Allah Allah is using this as a test for him as for any person that is going through any type of trial and tribulation. And the point is brothers and sisters, that the death of any single one of us also be life for our hearts were to be life for our hearts, let us seek guidance and demand through this. Very like the process of the law. as Adam said, think about death a lot. It reminds you of the

01:13:11--> 01:13:46

every single person must die in the coming years and we're in tune, you will die Oh Mohammed and they will also die. So emit death of Macaulay don't have a cell if you are going to die with a different eternal life. If Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam passed away and he died, what anyone else have returned to life, even the kuffaar and the atheist and the Hindus and the mystics and the Buddhists and the Christians and the Jews, even if they deny alone as messengers, they cannot deny the reality of death. Even if they deny the day of judgment and melodica they cannot deny that there will be a time when they will not be walking on the face of this earth. So the wise person is He who

01:13:46--> 01:13:48

benefits from these types of incidents.

01:13:49--> 01:14:05

Yes, the sister holiday has passed away May Allah subhana wa Allah give her genitals to those and give her a wide grave. Full of light and full of note, but let her death be a lesson for us as well. Let's be a life and a light for our hearts as well.

01:14:06--> 01:14:45

Just like she did not expect us just like she did not expect to be diagnosed with cancer and die in this fashion. It goes to a level of it it occur know that this can occur to any one of us. And in fact it doesn't even have to be cancer. It can be anything. Tomorrow one of us could not be here. One of us might not be walking and even if it's not tomorrow, eventually will lie he will be 90 What's a law he eventually it will occur even if it's not tomorrow and it's the day after or the year after or a decade after or 10 decades after. But have a surety that will come to you in a matter corner usually common mode wherever you are. That will come to you welcome tofi brugia Masha,

01:14:45--> 01:14:49

even if you are in fortresses, guarded fortresses.

01:14:50--> 01:14:57

Doesn't matter where you are, the Angel of Death will be able to come to you and He will take you good lunasin portrait mode, every soul shall taste.

01:14:58--> 01:15:00

So think about this and what

01:15:00--> 01:15:19

Of course and we seek Allah's refuge. If someone dies and our hearts become soft and our eyes cry, and the next day we're back to normal, the same sins and the same good deeds, we're not doing the same sins we perform the same good deeds not doing. The Wise One is He who takes a lesson in others, and not that others take a lesson from him. Take a listen and other people.

01:15:20--> 01:15:29

They have this sister of ours passed away. take a lesson from this. It could be you tomorrow. It could be your brother and your sister and your father and your mother day after that. What are you going to do?

01:15:30--> 01:15:37

And always ask yourself the question, am I ready to meet Allah subhana wa tada? Am I ready to respond to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:15:38--> 01:15:40

With that inshallah we'll open the floor for questions.

01:15:42--> 01:15:44

To her that was a positive forgive us.

01:16:03--> 01:16:09

Regarding during sickness, my mother and father are diabetics, they have been advised to read a particular I have the Quran

01:16:12--> 01:16:22

a number of times everyday, they have carried out this advice and their sugar levels have indeed fallen and are stable and handed it up. Please shed some light on this apparent cure. We have to differentiate between

01:16:23--> 01:16:38

Well, firstly, as you know, there are two types of cures there is a spiritual quote and cure in the physical security, the true movement takes both of them, okay, the spiritual career meaning looking at reciting the Quran, okay making and the physical occur, which is what our doctors that are scientists, they will tell us to do take this, take this thing.

01:16:39--> 01:17:09

When we take the physical cool, we have to realize that this is by the will in the permission of Allah, it does not have an effect in and of itself. And this is something that many of us psychologically we don't do. And this might even be minor shift, we take the panel or we take the thing and we think that allows our headache or pauses will go away, we forget that it is by the permission of Allah. So even when we take the physical cure, let our Eman be in Allah subhana wa tada and not in the tablet that we take even though we should take those tablets and those physical cures. So that is something that obviously the scientists and the doctors whatever you go to, they

01:17:09--> 01:17:44

will prescribe but let us not forget the physical, the spiritual care as well. And this is another common problem that most people will while they are taking the physical cure, they ignore the spiritual truth whereas the Quran is the greatest cure. The Quran is called a Shiva the cure of all diseases, the diseases of the heart and the diseases of the mind and the disease of the body. So, anytime we are sick, let us recite the Quran over ourselves and over the ones whom we love and over the visitors that we visit while they are sick and let us do it okay. And let us make the progress of the larger news to give upon the material upon the sick and there are many times you can look at

01:17:44--> 01:18:23

any any book of with regards to now however, taking a particular if a particular disease in general, this has not been married, therefore it might fall under innovation. If someone tells you if you're if you suffer from such a disease, recite 25 times this is in general and I don't know of anything where the Quran has been or the sooner has told us specifically for this for this disease recite this ayah this many times, if you were to believe this, it becomes an innovation because you have specified something which is unspecified. The cure is in the Quran, recite ayah and those eyes which are more blended and more, you have more about accounts such as the fact they have ayatul kursi.

01:18:23--> 01:19:01

Right, which is capital, calligrapher, Filipinas those eyes which are more blended obviously you recite them more, but don't recite them a specific number of times 101 or 2022. And these type of these type of numbers have no specifications and basis in the Quran as soon as someone asks you or tells you to do it, ask him the evidence for it. recite the Quran Yes, and every ayah is a cure inshallah, no problem. But don't make it a specific number of times there are specific times of the day whenever you can, as often as you can recite whatever is and and concentrate on those is which the professor himself would use and the Sahaba would use like ayatul kursi, and like any Fatiha and

01:19:01--> 01:19:04

others that are the Rukia that the professor was didn't produce.

01:19:05--> 01:19:07

In the if I remember, I should

01:19:08--> 01:19:12

I have heard that. In an opinion. It doesn't mean that you should reach puberty that you reach 40 years of age.

01:19:13--> 01:19:48

Is it necessary for a profit to be 40 years old to be a profit? No, it is not necessary you can become a profit before this. Okay. Lisa was inspired when he was a baby. As was used. He was inspired in the wealth and Isa he was raised up while he was 33 years old. So he was a prophet way before he's even 40 and he has not even reached for the years he will in fact, according to some narrations he will die when he's 40 years old. So he will come down to the earth and live seven years and die when he is 40 years old because he came up when he's 33 He will come down still 33 of the miracles of Allah and he will then live seven years and die when he is 40. And yes, it is one

01:19:48--> 01:19:57

opinion that Fatima vada should the humans he was 40 years old, but this is a very weak opinion seems like he says that he had just reached the age of puberty and Allah subhana wa tada knows best.

01:20:00--> 01:20:23

Please repeat why the brothers accused us of stealing. I said there's two possibilities mentioned by the arena. The first possibility is that it is a blatant lie, that there is no basis for this whatsoever. And they merely accuse us of a feeling to try to get themselves free opinion is that well, if he stole, then Binyamin has a brother, a full brother that's still before him. And he was useful. The second possibility is that

01:20:25--> 01:20:54

they that they're referring to incident as some of the arguments that you'd have mentioned, it's not found in any IR or anybody for some of the stuff I've mentioned it that used to when he was young, he stole, quote, unquote, stole an idol from his maternal grandfather. In other words, his father's, his mother's father, after his father's father, who's the Prophet is how his mother's father was emotionally, okay, according to these, these scholars, and he used to worship an idol. So use went to that idol and he broke it, and he took the pieces and he threw it away.

01:20:55--> 01:21:30

And so the brothers referred to this incident, as stealing, even though of course, like we said, to do this is allowed as long as is it will not have negative repercussions. Now, in our times in this country, we cannot enter the house of a Hindu and do this, we're not allowed to, because it's gonna get more problems. However, if we are the leaders of a household, or if we have a very close brother or friend who perhaps will convert and they are still idol worshipers. And we feel that this will cause them to think many of us have added this to their close relatives, because it causes them to think that this idol can be destroyed. It's not worthy of being worshipped. So if use of did this,

01:21:31--> 01:21:49

even if he did, we don't we cannot know for sure, because this this incident is not mentioned. But even if he did what he did cannot be constituted. Okay, so the brothers that exaggerate it to such an extent that we call the ceiling and we said that extreme exaggeration, falls underlying extreme exaggeration falls in your life. So these are the two interpretations

01:21:51--> 01:22:01

that are there that the accused has produced. Jimmy, how did you know that his father had lost his eyesight either the brothers told him or through ye from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:22:04--> 01:22:12

By this last question, because I advise all the brothers to go and pray the janazah for the sister, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that he will praise the generosity for the sister will

01:22:13--> 01:22:46

cause me to praise God for the Muslim, he will get the rewards of a mountain of gold the amount of hours excuse me, you will get the whole rewards of a mountain and if he accompanies digenova, to the graveyard, you will get to the mountains of Santa and obviously the accompany is only for the men and not for the brothers. As for us we will have to come back after janazah because we have to continue in the class. So we will continue whenever Allah was we come back and have lunch, perhaps around 230 or three o'clock whenever was. The last question is the names the names of the Toll Brothers are mentioned by many of them are.

01:22:47--> 01:23:18

These have not been mentioned in the sooner or in the ayat of the Quran. Rather these have been mentioned in in Israel, India in Judeo Christian sources. Therefore, to mention them is not a problem. But we cannot be certain that they are sure that they are accurate. Allah knows best whether these names are accurate or not. And there's no problem in mentioning them but I prefer to stay away from Judeo Christian narrations because there is not much benefit especially at this level that we are doing to mention these narrations it's better to avoid them, but if someone mentioned them, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has allowed it to mention therefore Major amalaki of nicotine

01:23:18--> 01:23:31

and others he relies a lot on Israel India as a as does a poverty. But if someone stays away from them, it is also better because then there will be no confusion between fossils and DNA. That which is correct will love to other animals. All the love was for them.
