Subtle Reflections 

  {{ إضاءه }} 

The brothers of our prophet Yoosuf ‘alayhis-salâm wanted to kill him (but he didn’t die)!! 

أراد إخوة سيدنا يوسف أن يقتلوه ( فلم يمت ) !! 

Then they wanted to erase him from existence

(so his fame increased instead)!! 

ثم أرادوا أن يمحى أثره     ( فارتفع شأنه ) !! 

Then he was sold as a slave (and this made him become a king)!! 

ثم بيع ليكون مملوكا     ( فأصبح ملكا ) !! 

Then they wanted to erase his father’s love for him (but it increased instead)!! 

ثم أرادوا أن يمحو محبته من قلب أبيه     ( فازدادت ) !! 

… So don’t stress the plots of man, for Allah’s will is above everyone’s will …

  ( فلا تقلق من تدابير البشر   فإرادة الله فوق إرادة الكل) 

When Yoosuf ‘alayhis-salâm was in prison, they all testified that he was the best of them:[Indeed, we see you of those who do good](Yoosuf: 36)

عندما كان يُوسف في السجن ،   كان يوسف الأحسن بشهادتهم” إنا نراك مِن المُحسنين ” .. 

yet Allah let them out before him!! Despite being distinguished in his virtue, he still[remained in prison several years] (Yoosuf: 42).

لكن الله أخرجَهم قبله !!   وظلّ هو – رغم كل مميزاته – بعدهمفي السجن بضعَ سنين !! 

The first came out to become a servant, the second came out to be executed, and Yoosufwaited and waited for a long time…!!

  (الأول خرج ليُصبح خادماً) ، (والثاني خرج ليقتل) ، ويوسف انتظر وانتظر كثيرا !! 

but he came out to be the king of Egypt, to be reunited with his parents, and to be as happy as he could be.

لكنه .. خرج ليصبح ” عزيز مصر ” ، ليلاقي والديه ، ليفرح حد الاكتفاء .. 

To all our dreams that have delayed in their arrival:

“Go ahead, decorate yourself further, for we see you as a good omen – like that ofYoosuf ‘alayhis-salâm.”

إلى كل أحلامنا المتأخرة:

” تزيني أكثر ، فإن لكِ فأل يوسف عليه الصلاة والسلام  

To all the superb believers whose wishes have delayed for several years more than everyone around them… Relax… 

إلى كل الرائعين الذين تتأخر أمانيهم عن كل من يحيط بهم بضع سنين ، لا بأس .. 

You know that announcing who took 1st place is always at the end of the celebration!

دائماً ما يبقى إعلان المركز الأول ..   لأخر الحفل !! 

If those around you have outraced you, then know that you will be given in exchange what is beyond your wildest dreams!

إذا سبقك من هم معك ، فاعرف أن ما ستحصل عليه .. أكبر مما تتصور؟!! 

Be sure that Allah never forgets, and [that Allah never allows to be lost the reward of those who do good] (Yoosuf: 90). 

تأكد أن الله لا ينسى ..   وأن الله لا يضيع أجر المحسنين 

So be amongst them

فكن منهم
