From the sources that our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to focus on reading quite frequently was sort of the sensitive. The first message that we receive when we open up the surah and if meme 10 Zero Kitabi Lowry Buffy he may Rob Bill al Amin, that this book is a revelation, which there's no doubt about from Rob, Bill Alameen, from the Lord of the Worlds. And what is the objective of this verse, a very short verse, but very powerful verse. The objective is, first of all, to increase our Eman to increase or up when it comes to the Quran or certainty when it comes to the Quran. Allah is telling us in his verse, that it's Tenzin that it's sent down from Allah Allah
has sent it to us. And that Lowery, Buffy there's no doubt about it.
From Rob Bill al Amin from the Lord of the Worlds after increases our Eman. It increases our European our certainty that what is the objective? The objective then is for us to become attached to it to be attached to the Quran, to hold firm to the Quran, to take our time to read the Quran, to learn the meanings of the Quran, to contemplate and make the double of the Quran and then to put these meanings that we learn into action. So the Quran shows up in our life reflecting on Surah to search them and similar I had to know Quran when Allah tells us Allahu Allah, the Halacha Sunnah wa T will out the one Boehner Houma the city am that Allah is the One Who created the heavens and the
earth and all that is between them in six Days. We reflect on this meaning in the other eye to know Quran Allah tells us that he wants something to happen. He says Kuhn for your corn to be and it is, and Allah could have done this when he created the heavens and earth. So why did he take six days to create the heavens and earth from the hikma from the wisdoms that the scholars of Tafseer mentioned? He said he wanted to teach his creation, the importance of perfection, the importance of doing things gradually and getting things done properly, it takes time to build things. And this Allah subhanaw taala was the Hala he could just say Be and it is, but he wants to teach us if we because
we don't have the ability to do we want it and we want something we want it to be done now. But we don't have that ability. So we really want to accomplish something we really want to build in this life. We really want to excel that we have to take time we have to do things gradually and build gradually. And then after that with the persistence in Shaolin salah the perfection will be facing difficulties going through calamities even being punished. We'll look at these things in this life as being something negative. But Allah shows us in the Quran in surah, the sedge the verse 21, what is one of the main wisdoms or Hichem was behind these events happening to us when he said
SubhanAllah? What's on it? Well, no, the econo who Milla will add in a duel either but Akbar, that we will surely let them taste from the shorter punishment the less punish meaning the punishment of this life. Do. We allow that Akbar meaning the punishment that will come for them in the Hereafter, if they are from those who turn away from Allah subhanho wa Taala from his verses, those who don't act upon the revelation that Allah sent. Allah mentions at the end of the verse, What is the hikma? What is the wisdom of this punishment in this life? La La Hmail Jiun that the pride that perhaps they will repent, perhaps they were returned to Allah. Imam machete Rahim Allah wa Taala mentioned
two of the main ingredients that we need if we want to be successful leaders. When he was talking about the verse and sort of the sedge, the verse 24. He said, let you make Kenny Labdoo had your pillar that one will not become successful you will not be given authority and power until he is tested. While your su e Mammon Elavil, eventually Athene and he will not become an Imam, a leader until he has a man and you'll gain certainty. And then he read the verse what javelina mean whom emitter yeah doing a marina and we may from them leaders when guiding by our commands. When did they become leaders for a law Guardian by the command of Allah, Lemma sobble When they had patients, what
can will be I attina You will be known and when it comes to our verses, they have yet been the Ayat of Allah subhanho wa taala. In the Quran, the Ayat of Allah subhanaw taala is creation. We want has yaki with these verses and he has sober then he becomes from the leaders of this ummah. Imam even Taymiyah Rahim Allah He said, Bill Imani will with Bill Imani Willie a teen, Jana will Imam atrophic Deen that with Imani again, you become from the leaders of this day.
