We offered the Trust to the heavens, the earth and the mountains but they refused to take it on and shrank from it. But man took it on. He is indeed wrongdoing and ignorant. (Surat al-Ahzab, 72)
He will eliminate their cruel and ignorant aspects. People are prone to cruelty, to enormity. An ignorant man must equip himself with knowledge against ignorance. Allah also mentions the “ungratefulness”.
Man is truly ungrateful. (Surat al-Hajj, 66)
Ungratefulness indeed renders a person very ugly, it takes away the beauty of a person. For instance, it takes away the beauty of a young girl. It takes away the reason. It puts a person into a horrible position. It sweeps away the joy and bliss. One must fiercely avoid being selfish, egoistic and ungrateful . One must be honest, reasonable and a good person. People force themselves to become abnormal. It is very difficult to be bad. Left to their own states of nature, people are normally beautiful. If a person speaks, addresses, expresses his love as he feels is right, everything will be all right. People become ungrateful or wicked through some deliberate effort. I go out and see that many people do not look at one another’s’faces. One takes pains with it. Look at the faces of other people; what would you lose? Greet them. How nice! Say, “Salamun Alaikum.” Go and get to know them; you will feel relived, it will be fine. Show your smiling face, it will make you feel relieved. No, under all circumstances he has to have a sullen face. I see that people are of this mindset. In response to a compliment, people show a mean attitude. This must change. That is why people shy away from one another. That is the case in every corner of the world. People do not talk to one another. They do not befriend one another. They do not love one another. They do not show trust, love and compassion. They disquiet one another. Then they become weary of life. What a pity! People open up with love. Think of a wheat kernel planted in soil; it grows as you give water. A little bit of heat and water makes it grow. That is also the case with people. People need love just like water and sun. They need friendship and trust. Once a person sees love, he becomes relieved and beautifies himself.
Allah relates Prophet Joseph’s (as) beautiful life and devotes an entire surah to it.
We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an so that hopefully you will use your intellect. (Surah Yusuf, 2)
This means that we will conceive, think and ponder Insha’Allah.
We tell you the best of stories in revealing this Qur’an to you, even though you were unaware of it before it came. (Surah Yusuf, 3)
“We tell you the best of stories”; notice that Almighty Allah says,“The best of stories”.
“Even though you were unaware of it before it came.“ That is to say, Allah says that it is the news of the unknown.
When Yusuf (Joseph) told his father, ‘Father! I saw eleven bright stars, and the sun and moon as well. I saw them all prostrate in front of me.’ (Surah Yusuf, 4)
Eleven; two “ones” together, surely it has a deep meaning. There is also reference to the 9/11 (2001) attacks. There is also reference to the lunar and solar eclipses, which are the portents of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as). Another reference is the Hazrat Mahdi (as) again, as the twelfth imam. After the eleven imams, Hazrat Mahdi (as) is the twelfth imam. There are other indications, but I will speak of them later.
He said, ‘My son, don’t tell your brothers your dream lest they devise some scheme to injure you, satan is a clear-cut enemy to man. (Surah Yusuf, 5)
“Don’t tell your brothers your dream”; What happened when we told the ignorant about the End Times, the beauties of the system of Hazrat Mahdi (as)? They started to attack us like mad dogs. Some idolaters and hypocrites, I mean. We spoke of our dream and said; “The morality of the Qur’an will prevail the world. Hazrat Mahdi (as) and Prophet Jesus (as) will come.” We spoke of this true, beautiful dream of ours. But some hypocrites who pretended to be our brothers, people in the guise of a Muslim, attacked us violently. Allah says in the verse, “lest they devise some scheme”; they also hatched plots against us. They cooperated with disbelievers. “satan is a clear-cut enemy to man.” That is to say,the dajjal, the system of the dajjal is an obvious enemy of man.
Accordingly your Lord will pick you out and teach you the true meaning of events and perfectly fulfil His blessing on you as well as on the family of Jacob as He fulfilled it perfectly before upon your forebears, Abraham and Ishaq (Issac). Most certainly your Lord is Knowing, Wise.’ (Surah Yusuf, 6)
"Accordingly your Lord will pick you out”; Allah will select you among all people. It is indicated that Allah will teach him how to interpret the events. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will also interpret the hadith and the incidents of the End Times most beautifully. He will be the person who best interprets them.
“as well as on the family of Jacob as He fulfilled it perfectly before upon your forebears.”
The family of Jacob. That is to say Israel. What is the descent of Hazrat Mahdi (as)? He is from the sons of Israel. He is from the descent of the Prophet David (as). How does Allah fulfill His blessings? By making Hazrat Mahdi (as) the leader of the Islamic World, the leader of all the sons of Israel, and saving all Muslims. Then this verse will come true, Insha’Allah.
In Yusuf (Joseph) and his brothers there are Signs for every one of those who wants to ask. (Surah Yusuf, 7)
Allah stresses that there are signs only for “those who want to ask.”
When they declared, ‘Why! Yusuf (Joseph) and his brother are dearer to our father than we are although we constitute a powerful group. Our father is clearly making a mistake. (Surah Yusuf, 8)
The people of the time are extremely jealous. “Although we constitute a powerful group”; the idolaters and hypocrites of our day indeed support one another. They form a great alliance.
