This was a talk presented by Sheikh Sajid Umar in Melbourne, Australia, December 2013.
In this talk, Sheikh Sajid speaks on the lessons from the best of all narrations – Surah Yusuf.
From the lessons highlighted are; Parenthood and being the best parent, deriving lessons from the wise man and Prophet of Allah, Ya’qoob(as). As parents we are tasked with nurturing the nature of the ummah of today and tomorrow, and thus this reminder is greatly beneficial.
Another lesson is maintaining the bonds of kinship and being exemplary with one another.
Sheikh Sajid concluded the talk with the lesson of Forgiveness, the forgiveness displayed between Ya’qoob (as) and his sons and between Yusuf (as) and his brothers, reminding us to forgive one another as many times as we would love Allah Almighty to forgive us.
The best story narrated to us in the Qur’an. May Allah allow us to extract all the gems from this Surah for as long as we live and continue to teach us how to be Muslims through this Surah.
