Be'ezrat Hashem I would like to open this subject for writing here Derashoth of Parashat Hashavu'a from the Iraqi Chachamim especially from Kebod Morenu Werabbenu Chacham Yosef Haim A"H the Ben Is Hai.
every body is invited to add his Chiddushim to the Parasha.
so everybody can read the words and have some ideas about Parashath Hashavu'a.

Parashath hashavu'a: Wayyakhel-Pekudey:
the BI"H says that what is written in the Parasha: Shabbath Shabbathon it comes to tell us about someone who is in the desert and forgot when it was the last Shabbath so he has to count seven days starting from the day that he forgot and the seventh day will be his Shabbath. so there are two kinds of Shabbath one is the true Shabbath everywhere and one is his Shabbath according his counting.

dear sirs!
Parashat Hashavua is Wayyikra. the letter Alef is written Ze'ira means little. the Midrash says that Moshe Rabbenu A"H wanted to write it without Alef at all like it is written in Bil'am Harasha'a's story WAYIKKAR since Moshe was very humble. but Hakadosh B"H told him to write the Alef too so he wrote it with little Alef. this is the reason that he Zacha that his name comes in the Parasha first and before Shem Hashem (Wayyikra El MOshe Waydabber Hashem Elaw..)

B"H
In Parashat Saw we can read the Pasuk: Zoth Torath Ha'ola Hi Ha'ola. the Ben Ish Hai A"H in his book Od Yosef Hai says that this Pasuk speaks about a man who wants to be rich that he cannot achieve his aim if he always runs after it. only when he doesn't go after it the richness comes to him. and the Chacham tells a story to explain this idea: A poor man wanted to have some Sedaka from a rich man. he went to his house and wanted to enter but the guard didn't let him to go in. so he set down under the window of the house waiting for the rich man to go out of his house and then he would be able to ask him some Sedaka. the maid of the house didn't know there was a man under the window and she threw the garbage on the poor man. he was so sorry and went away from there. on his way he found a diamond in the middle of the street. he took it and sold it and had a lot of money. after some years he became again poor so he went to the house of the rich man but didn't enter the house although there was no guard that day. he thought to go again and sit under the window to let the garbage to be on him so that Hashem will make the Pasuk: "Me'ashpot Yarim Evyon" comes true and then Hashem will let him have again a diamond. the rich man went out of the house and saw him sitting there. "why didn't you enter my house?" asked the rich man and when he heard the poor man's answer he told him: you cannot achieve it this way. the last time you succeede because you didn't know what would happen and it came to you inadvertment. but now that you want it to happen to you it will not happen to you. this is what the Pasuk says: Zoth Torath Ha'ola Hi Ha'ola meaning it comes inadvertment. you have just to beleive in Hashem as the Pasuk says: Tamim Tihyeh Im Hashem Elokecha.
