Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while and he was the woman who Allah.
But the brothers, Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran describes the impact that the Quran has. When he said hello and Zanna Heather Quran Allah jobelan Nara eita who Hirsch Yamato Sogdian Maha Shatila that if you were to ascend, if we were to send this Quran down upon a mountaintop, you would see the mountain becoming humbled out of the fear of Allah. This is the impact that the Quran has upon a mountain. So what about us as individuals, if this affects a mountain, how should it affect us the Quran? When you look at the Sahaba of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abdullah bin Ottawa, even his way, he said he asked his,
his grandmother ismat Debbie Booker, how were the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he came to the Quran, she said that their eyes would water and their skin would shiver as Allah subhanaw taala describes it in the verses in the Quran. Also
Abdullah in the
Bumblebee, Allahu and he heard an individual reading the Quran, praying the night prayer, when he came in the versus, and sort of the poor in Nadab Rebecca lava Mala whom in depth, that indeed the the punishment of your Lord is coming, and there's nothing that can divert it and he heard it and he said, You know what a true for reminder of their loved one. And he said he went back to his house and he remained for an entire month and he was ill and people would visit him not knowing what his illness was from, but it was from the impact that these if had upon him and like this the self after them Imam and fully eliminate al Rahim Allah Tala that he was reading, and leading the prayer when
he came and he was reading from Surah At the CAFO. And so to careful
who from US has not memorized it.
Probably nobody in this room, except all of us have memorized Surah to the cat. All right. So when he started off reading the surah until he reached letter O ninja him that indeed, you will see the hellfire, that he started to cry hysterically. And he couldn't continue in the prayer. And his son, Ali.
He was also like his father when it came to the Kashi and the fear of Allah subhanaw taala. He said he passed out.
During the period he passed out and he couldn't continue. And and Fidel eventually was able to continue on the Salat. But they said he, he led them in a prayer he was very, you know, you could you could see the fear that he had an ally, his son, Rahim, Allah didn't wake up until around midnight, this is a moment of time. So here you'll see the impact that the Quran had have had on them. Now the question we have for ourselves is for us what's missing? Any how many of us have actually cried when we heard the Quran? And if we've cried, maybe it was once maybe if we're lucky twice, but you'll find that for most of us, it's a very rare occurrence, probably very rarely
happens or never happens.
So here, the Quran is the same Quran that they had. So why are they so any and the impact is so strong and so great for them? But for us, we read it, we memorize it, we listened to it, and it has no impact on us. One of the reasons and several reasons why, and we'll talk about that in a bit, inshallah a bit more detail about why we don't benefit from the Quran, Earth man.
Even our fan, Radi Allahu Allah and he said that if the hearts were pure, they would never be satisfied from reading the Quran
that the hearts were pure, they will never be satisfied in meaning they want more custody read more of the Quran, they will always want more of the Quran never being satisfied meaning if you read one page, two pages you want three and four, because you always want to read more of the Quran. So it goes back to a lot of the times the situation of our hearts and the sins like them, send them to Allah. As we will discuss in a bit of detail in general Tada. Many of us have fallen into a banding in the Quran.
If we would ask ourselves, honestly, how many of us read the Quran today? Maybe someone susumi restorative care, which Allah is the Buddha, how many minutes of the budget, read a few pages?
I don't wanna put people on the spot. But I mean, if he wanted to be honest with ourselves, we'll find many of us. We had read the Quran today.
What Okay, what about yesterday? What about last week? And we were just ask ourselves honestly each one of us to sit down and say how many pages of the Quran did we read from last Joomla to this Joomla?
And you'll find that
the answer for almost the majority of almost all of us would be catastrophic. The numbers,
even brothers who are practicing brothers who are serious about their Deen, you'll find that when it comes to the Koran, we're not making the effort. We're not reading the Quran. So one of the main things is our heart. And we need to be aware that we don't fall into a bending in the Quran, Imam YBNL theme he mentioned how many types of bending the Quran I think is a famous statement. Who knows? He said the abandonment of the Quran there's different types. And a very, very famous statement. How many times did he mention who knows?
Somebody said no, I say something
comes with five different types. And it's something subpoena that we might hear we've heard before, but what I want all of us to do is I'm going to mention them now. I want I want us to great ourselves.
Each one knows itself. So when I say this type of a version of the Quran or Benjamin of the Quran, is give yourself so we can we can do it like like in the school, you know, 100% grade, each one of the five was a 20%. If you were to rank yourself for example, it's a brother gets 10 On the first 115 On the second 120 On the next five on the fourth and see out of 100% How many Where are you at the quarterback comes to abandon the Quran? The first time he said to abandon listening and believing in the Quran. Just listening to the Quran. How many of us how much time do we spend and listening to the Quran even though Allah here one this is one of the great blessings that we have
from Allah subhanaw taala the ability to listen to the Quran.
When it comes time to go to work coming from work and you're listening. I remember back in the day of the days of the cassette tape
was seems like the the the the golden ages now a long time ago. And that's the young kids now with a cassette tape that was that they have no clue what it is, you know. And for us it was just something just recent Cipolla. I remember that one of my favorite parties. His most half, there was an 18 different 1818 cassette tapes. So I will start from one all the way to 18 going and coming back from work how many times it's hamdulillah is it something easy, and it's about what you're getting is one of the things that I mentioned as well. Any is putting in peace. When you're when you're when you're driving in the car. How many of us now, we take advantage of having them on our phones. Many times
now we go to the airport we arrived the main thing we're gonna do is we're on the phone and looking and most of the stuffs not beneficial. Always want to tell some of the brothers always have my headphones with me I'm gonna take out the headphones put them in. As I'm waiting in immigration line, I'm just going to look for Al Hamdulillah it's an opportunity. So we need to rate ourselves when it comes to our listening and the Quran obviously believing in it. Hopefully inshallah Allah has any we have strong belief, but when it comes to listening, perhaps we have an issue. The second type of abandon the Quran when it comes to acting upon it, meaning by
acting upon that which is lawful and staying away from that which is prohibited to me doing that which is halal. Following the commands stay away from that which is haram and what you've been told to stay away from, how many of us what is our great when it comes to that when it comes to acting upon the Quran. And the third sight when it comes to abandoning, abandoning judging by it, and going back to it for the ruling or implementing our religion to how Comilla Al Quran going back and see what is the rulings of the Quran implementing it. So many people will say want to implement it. So you look at the government's implementing yourself first. And we'll talk about the does this
government or that government implement the Quran? What about you? What about yourself will always look at yourself first. Because the Lord's gonna ask us the first thing that humans dama he's going to ask us about ourselves. Did you rule by the Quran and your house and what you could rule by the fourth type is when it comes to the debris that's what we're talking about today and show us on our lessons are two lessons that we have here today is going to be an introduction to the double reflecting and pondering on the Quran. This is what the Quran was sent down for Kitab warrensville Now we Lake Mubarak to do what with it, Leah Deborah, to reflect on it is a blessed book We have
sent down to you to reflect on its meanings. And the fifth type of hedge up or abandon the Quran as they mentioned or him Allah Tala is seeking the sheaf up from it, and the cure from it, whether it's the cure for what's in the hearts or even in the bodies, because it is a Rukia for the spiritual diseases, and it's also Rukia even for the physical diseases as well. And so we mentioned a bit about that towards the end of the series and Chautala.
One of the issues that we have when it comes to
to not being able to benefit from the Quran or why we're not benefiting from the Quran is that many of us in our mentality whether we say it or not, we kind of looked like this was a book that was sent down to the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem and to the Sahaba or the Allahu Anhu. Which is true, but it was it just for them.
This is the this issue we have, when it comes to realizing the Quran is for all of mankind. And as some of the scholars mentioned, it hasn't even added or the Allah one he said, or the Allahu Allahu Allah, he said that those who will be for you they saw the Quran as resale. What does resale mean? When you say like messages, or is it something being sent to you from who from Allah subhanaw taala. Each if, and it's April, they mentioned, if you really want to benefit from the Quran, you have to imagine the Lord speaking to you directly. And this is what it is the reality of the Quran? Is that Allah subhanaw taala, speaking to you don't think if he was speaking to the Prophet Muhammad was in
the sahaba? Maybe I can benefit something from it. No, he's also speaking to you, to me to all of us. And we do when you when you pay attention to individually. And like some of the scholars mentioned, if you get an important invitation, how does it make you feel? If you've got an invitation, they say, somebody comes to your workplace and say, here's an invitation from the CEO, or here's an invitation from the Emir to attend this dinner, and it's in your name.
How do you pay attention to it? Or if it's a if it's a group message on WhatsApp, now, everybody's invited? Do you pay attention to it? Not really. I mean, he didn't really meet me, even anybody who wants to come to smell You're welcome. Everybody's invited, all invited. But when it comes to that, in your name, registered posts, here it is to attend with the Amino to attend with the CEO dinner. How are you going to read that message? Carefully, you're going to examine it, you're going to read it again. You're going to go home,
have dinner with the family and even sit down say look, this is what the message said to me. Mr. So and So Mr. Mohammed mahadi You're invited to this dinner and you're gonna pay attention to it. So like this was the Quran when the AI comes Allah speaking to you pay attention to it with this and give the same same focus and the same effort when you read it and you focus on it. And then you want to put it into action and show autonomy. So when asked now why do you guys think we're not benefiting from the Quran? We saw the impact the Quran had when it was sent down if it was sent down upon a Jebin on a mountain, we saw the impact that it had on the Sahaba and those who follow in
their footsteps so what's wrong with us why are we not truly benefiting from the Quran? We need to diagnose first any any doctors here are some doctors are when Indians are engineers only is the doctor in the infrastructure most are engineers, engineers.
So now we have to diagnose Okay, now we can save and in some engineering, you have to diagnose the problem. Before you see how we're going to fix it, we have to see where the problem lies. So we're gonna diagnose what is what is the things that are holding us back and stopping us preventing us from benefiting from the Quran.
Go ahead. There's no
There's no wrong answer. By the way. In some of the when I teach in different course, sometimes write down some of the benefits. And you find that sometimes even some things that I haven't gathered some of the brothers which is very good, and we write down
understanding and application and we don't understand the Quran. Very good and we don't implement the Quran. Very good. What else
are since Excellent. What?
The way we're living our life. We're too busy. We don't have time for
love of dunya. Very good. All of these things are correct. What the brother mentioned the sense and the sense of Palau one we have to how did that I believe Massoud unsalable, how do you how do you describe the sense for the believer the true believer? How does he feel with the sense he said he feels like it's a mountain on top of about to fall down? That's a it's crushing to him the sin? He said the monarch How does he feel about this in like the fly shoo? It's a bit annoying was originally but it's not. No big deal. Here's the fly coming now as we speak. No big deal. Just get it out of the way. So many of us even on shallow Tada. We're believers. We become an our
characteristics like the minority in the sense for us a lot of them. It's just like this. Shoo, shoo, no big deal.
Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in the Quran Kel Well, Rana
and I flew him Makana Yuxi Bucha that Iran is put on their hearts because of the deeds that they used to do. The prophets that Allahu Allah he was sending described as the black dot it's good to completely becomes covered in sin. So much so that it doesn't know what that was.
Matter of that which is good, well, I don't care what is Monkey.
It doesn't deny that which is evil. It doesn't know what is good. And it doesn't deny that what evil so what happens at the heart of becomes Marcos, it becomes the opposite. Whereas now it's become to mean it's become normal for us, the mouse in a sense.
And sometimes now so much so we see it and doesn't even affect us anymore.
Where sometimes we do it, we don't even realize we're doing these cents. That's why our hearts have been corrupted. And we're not benefiting from the Quran. We're not benefiting from the salon as well. We pray we just go through the movements, we're not really benefiting. That's another show we could talk about maybe another setting is how to benefit more from the setup in general Donna, and then what their brother mentioned as well. We don't act upon the Quran, when acting upon it, now wants you to pay attention to these verses. And sort of
when Allah subhanaw taala said about the Quran, but Jack woman Allah He known on walkie taboo movie, that from Allah it's come to know light and a clear book.
So it's know from Allah subhanho wa taala. It's the Clear Book.
But how can we benefit from it? What do we have to do to it to be able to benefit from the Quran? Allah then said in the next verse, yes, the healer, Manitoba, who
will be eliminated out of 101 Oh, similar setup, that Allah guides with it with the Quran, to His pleasure those who follow it.
Manitoba who follows it, Allah guides with it, the ones who follow it to also implement and put into action.
But if we're not following implement the corona cannot benefit from it. And you learn teachings, Allah tells you do this, and you turn away, Allah tells you don't do this, and you do it.
If we're not truly going back to the Quran, searching for guidance and guidance and implement it, then we're not going to benefit from it. Also from the things that we don't this holding us back because we don't reflect we don't make the Dibble that's what we're trying to show it to revive today is how to make the devil out of the Quran. And you're gonna have a question say but if we don't understand, if we don't speak Arabic, Inshallah, with all of that's going to come and shout out with the stage.
When it comes to reflecting Allah subhanho wa taala, as we said in the verse earlier, from Salt, salt Kitab warrensville. Now, Hui Lake, Mubarak, Leah Debu it, it's a blessing that we've sent down to you to reflect on his meanings. And how do you describe those who don't reflect on the Quran
of Allah to Debold Al Quran? Allah KHUDOBIN a follower to do not reflect on the Quran of luck's been placed on their hearts. That's the reality of our hearts. Lots have been placed on its own are benefiting from making the devil of the Quran. Also, we do not seek guidance from the Quran.
And subhanAllah instead of looking in the Quran and reflecting on and want to know the answer from the Quran, we turned to other sources.
Now, somebody, for example, many Muslims are suffering from emotional diseases.
It's almost like now, very similar to what's happening in the West. When you go to the west, and you read the percentage and in some areas in the West, where 50% of the people and sometimes more, they're on prescription drugs, to be able to handle the stress and the trauma and the drama of everyday life.
Whereas the Muslim has the Shiva and the Quran, and we turn to the Quran, it nila, we're seeking guidance from seeking Shiva Allah will help us to the Quran. But we turn to the other sources we see it we have to get the prescription drugs like everybody else if we follow their footsteps what we're going to be just like them, but we have the guidance and we have the cure all of it to the Quran.
Also from the things that hold us back as the brother said, we don't understand and one of the key things to be able to understand the Quran what is it understanding what
was one of the key things
the Arabic language to say okay, but it's difficult. And the crazy thing is I'm speaking to many people now here today who speak three languages already or four languages some people when it comes to Arabic, I have tried shift is difficult. But when you had to learn English to become an engineer, that wasn't difficult
when you had to learn English to be in the top school, and India that was a difficult when it came time for the foreigners too difficult for the Arabic
so by law, my brother came to me he's really into it. He said, Yeah, he said she was in England. And I know many of the brothers in England they speak either two or three languages. It depends. And where mama and Baba are from. So one of them is ECDs speak Urdu and fish stone and English and maybe a fortnight three languages spoken. Because any so right away I know because his mother and father from various he had those two laborers and he speaks English. He grew up in the UK. So So you already have three languages. So you can't speak Arabic because you don't want to speak there.
You're not serious about it. If you really want it to you put in the effort, that's how it is in life anything you want to do. People say I want to get into shape then do it go to the gym, start eat healthy, and you're gonna get in shape and that's just what happens when you look at the TV watch YouTube is amazing. When you look at the gym, look at getting big. And he's just turn it off and go do it implement. It's not going to work. You're just sitting there watching it hoping or dreaming about it. You have to go out and do it. That's the plan. This is a general principle and in life yeah, one, even when it comes to business, those who are well off in the in the in the in the
business world, the businessmen, how do they get their
hard work dedication, putting in the extra hours.
Those who are in great shape, how do they do it? They made the time.
So also if you want to learn Arabic, you have to make the time and I want to show you the impact of Arabic and also the ruling of speaking Arabic from the kalam the statement of Scheffel Islam Tamia, Rahim, Allah Tada. And his book actually though Stellata Mr. P. He said Rahim, Allah Tala. Knowing
that getting used to the Arabic language clearly has an immense effect on the person's mind, character and religious commitment and pay attention to these words of shiftless Lemma himolla. The impact of the Arabic language and understanding Arabic and speak Arabic has upon you, and how he said it has an impact on a person's mind, his character, and his religious commitment, even how you religious you are, and how you good your religion. It goes back to what knowing the Arabic language, he said it also has an effect on resembling the earlier generations of the Ummah, the Sahaba and February, imitating them increases one's wisdom, religious commitment, and good manners. When you
learn the Arabic language and you start to implement Arabic language,
then you're going to find what that you're resembling this hub in the Tibet, even those who came after them. When the Sahaba and it's evergreen, they went to countries and they conquered these lands. What do they do now? Like when we going out to Europe to get the passport, we learned the language, no idea, but to learn that we have to learn their language. Whereas the Sahaba when they would go they would teach them the language of the Quran, the language of the Sunnah, all Muslims used to speak Arabic, funded the majority of listeners around the world used to speak Arabic, when the colonization came and they were forced to learn different languages, then Arabic start to get
weak throughout the Muslim world, we'll understand that what is the ruling of Arabic because it's just a good thing to do, or something we have to do? It depends what you want to do with your religion and where you want to get with your religion, shekel Islam and another statement, or hey, Mala Tada. He said, the Arabic language is from the religion, it's part of the religion, is it it's from the religion, and the knowledge of it is an obligation. It's words it
was it was him. So I remember one time somebody came to the How can you see? Well, you just sent me a checklist that first of all, who said it? But is it No, no, no, it can't be watching. So you don't want to do logic, but you wanted to do that. But this was second Islam saying, look, look at the third look at the understanding of shifting Islam why he's saying his watch.
He said For surely the understanding of the Quran and the Sunnah is an obligation as well as you
and two and these two are not understood except by understand the Arabic language mean you cannot properly understand them. Unless you know the Arabic language. And then they have the principal Mala, your terminological Levy, for who worship, they would that what you cannot complete the wajib act upon you except for with it, then it becomes wajib upon you to do it, you have to do it, it's not up to you. So therefore, if you really want to be able to benefit from the Quran, you need to know the Arabic language. The good news is, is that we can still benefit from the Quran as we're learning the Arabic language. So with that, I'm going to show you different ways now Inshallah,
tada, even in your own language, you'll be able to benefit. But that doesn't mean we're not going to focus on learning the Arabic because if we really want to truly understand, for example, if you were to look at one of the smallest
sutras in the Quran, and Surah alasa
we have the translation. What also which is what, by time
in Berlin, Senate Leviosa and the mankind is in loss. But if you know the Arabic language, you know, that's not really what I mean. It's a rough meaning of what it means. But if you know for example, I also want to start something with a question
by swearing about something subhanaw taala that shows you emphasis importance and then if you look at all the techie that which come after that in and then the lamb is another tech eat, so you can't translate a double tech eats very, very well, it doesn't it doesn't have the impact of Arabic language, and the fact that any closer in his neck era, this also has a meaning and the Arabic grammar and Arabic language once you know the Arabic there's a much huger impact on your understanding of the Quran.
The sixth reason we mentioned that we're not benefiting from the Quran is
the fact that we don't know what is the objectives, what are the proper objectives of reading the Quran, I'm going to mention those Inshallah, towards the end of the second session Shanell 1000 are what are the objectives and depth of reading the Quran. And the second thing that we mentioned that we the last thing, which is
that we don't make the effort, and we mentioned that if you really, really want to do something, you have to make the effort to do it. You have to put in the time and amazing statement by Featherdale Banani. And the same statement he mentioned when he came to benefit from the salad. And when it came to benefit him from the Quran. He said cover to cover the NFC and the narration here the Quran. He said, As soon as I push myself that I made myself do it, he went through difficulty doing it, the mathematics to be he or she incentive. So he forced himself.
He said about the salon, and he said about the Quran. He said, I forced myself when he wasn't fighting me that pleasure. But he forced himself to do it 20 years. And then he said, and then I found pleasure in him for 20 years.
Which is evidence that if you want something bad enough, you work your work and that Allah opens up for you. Maybe I'm gonna you're gonna benefit along the way, no doubt. But he knew what happened. He said, I forced myself I pushed myself for 20 years. It's fudgier time, this is the time for the Quran. I'm reading an entire Jesus. I'm tired. This smile meant one of the scholars. It was from Syria. He was living in Sudan a long time ago. And he escaped when it came to the Quran alone, but it never really would make a mistake. God he caught it from the top Quran. And when he would read people would break down into tears. And fact a famous day who's he's with you guys here before from
He told me his story of his guidance. He was got he was about 1718. He didn't really know Arabic. And he said he would he said I went to this mostly it was close to my aunt's house. And people are crying as the shake was reading. So he said, Well, we said I used to pray, please, I realized there was something to Islam that I was missing. There's more to it than meets the eyes or what I thought Islam was what's making these people cry. So he started to he start to read and come to the ship was speaking Fusaro Arabic, Suzanne will take my old recorder you know what the cassette tape and record is his
record is called Buzz and you start to learn proper Arabic until the machine now he became from the famous do out and in the world. The point is, is that he what he he realized that the Quran had it had a huge impact, because of
how he will recite you can feel something's resuscitation now when people will break down into tears. As I visited the chef and his house. He said that I am on the methodology of the hook while they do read five juices every day, mandatory five hours a day. And he said if I get sick, two, three days, I can't read the next day, the third day every 15 users. He said never leave it. That's why he doesn't make mistakes when he reads it as well.
I heard this yesterday's does the same thing. In the morning, between five and seven, Jesus walks around and does them all in the morning. Some of them do throughout the day, but they committed. But once you have that commitment, eventually what you're going to find the pleasure. So when we want to start off f1 We talk about now this to be able to make the decision to make a commitment to really start
saving people who are scared. Number five, seven, Jesus brothers don't get scared. I was into it for a minute, I was buying into suffering whatever the crime now, if you were to read after each solid, four pages, what's going to happen and by the end of the day,
you finish the
end of the day, end of the month you finish the Quran, start there. I remember when we're studying with our chef who shall pay the animals and never we
always talk about how to make the MLA
The first mistake that all of us make is what we start during the last Thursday night. That's the best time we get up. The chef's hat don't start like that. Because what's gonna happen you do it for a few days and then you quit. And how many of us who started the last few years and quit? Many of us Oh no, no, no, it has batty money or I'm sure all of you have good very good democracy.
So what happens is you start and you quit. So he said make it till it becomes from your routine. after Isha
here you have you can you can force yourself to do it. And then let's do the next chiffon comes on and you're half asleep half awake, and he usually gets you watch it becomes part of your DNA and what you're doing. So then add on 30 minutes before that, just so you pray with it and maybe make a little do and then then you go to Southeast Asia. Then you start to increase 45 minutes one hour until it becomes part of who you are, or who you are. If you look at some of the scholars of our time shipping bas Rahim Allah, those who know what he said, never ever he were in the last third of the night before budget all the time.
All of his life he was committed to
Once you start to commit to something Allah subhanaw taala makes it easy for you.
So where do we start? You know what? How can we start to revive the Quran in our lives and to be able to benefit to make some to devil on the Quran first of all we need to start by loving the Quran having to love for the Quran
and if you want to be able to determine as some of the Mushaf mentioned different ways to determine if you love the Quran or not
five different examples and each one of us once again raise yourself up on we're here now to better ourselves to each other we want to we go home tonight we want to be better Muslims, we want to be more attached inshallah to the Quran shelter. I believe brother John talked about some parenting tools want to go back to the being what better parents inshallah Tada this is the goal and they were always bettering ourselves as Muslims. We're always learning something from the scholars.
And they have had he said as they're on their deathbed he heard a fight and he's dying to have to write it down the benefit is they never say a callus I'm gonna die now no need to write and write it down. Let me benefit from the scholars even in our times. They said as they're on their deathbed, they have their children and their students reading the books to them. First you don't need the knowledge anymore, do you but it's something he's committed to something he loves to do, always wants to better himself almost even if it's the last day if I can learn something about Allah learn something about my religion, I'm going to learn so we need to what? Love the Quran. So from the
signs that we love the Quran is
happiness when we sit down with the Quran that we feel good when it comes time to read the Quran. We feel good inside. Secondly, that we missed the Quran away from the Quran. We can't wait until we get that opportunity. And I give the example we have gone when it comes to being at work,
people take coffee breaks, extended lunch breaks, the whole hour, what are we doing for the for the lunch break, we have an hour lunch break. We eat for 10 minutes and we talk for 15 minutes.
If you talk for 10 minutes to two colleagues, and go into QA for 1015 minutes, when you have a short break, for example, read the Quran when you're driving and you're Travis and instead of checking all these, these messages, read something from the Quran read half a page. Some of the traffic lights like we on the way today how long we sit in the traffic lights, how many pages could we have rented to for everyone to benefit from the time you have.
So by law, remember, when I was teaching in Dubai,
I told the brothers had the one thing that kept me sane because teaching is a very difficult job. And then you go in there and you feel like you come out and your head is about to explode. And you feel like you know, what am I doing? I'm gonna go crazy. I'm not gonna be able to make it. So well I would open up the Quran sometimes we have five minute break just just two pages I would read. But it would change my whole mindset and change my life. So that's what kept me firm after Allah subhanaw taala. And it kept me sane as the power went crazy with these kids and Oh, kids are wild and it's really the school because now nowadays in modern education, you can't. There's there's no stick
anymore. So you have to you have to get them involved in Mises. It's difficult, it's not easy. That's why I have high respect for teachers and why the hell they go through for what they get paid. It's not easy your life and may Allah bless them and bless their efforts are blimey so the Quran says I take advantage of these times when you have these breaks to read the Quran, sitting with the Quran for long periods of time, that when I'm in a hurry to get finished, we want to sit with the one as much as we can benefit from the Quran as much as we can. Also to return to the Quran is for seeking guidance, we want to be guided but also what should we do in life we go back and we look in
the Quran and then the fifth thing obeying the Quran obeying the commands in the Quran all of this shows us that we love the Quran
and what is the relationship between loving the Quran and making the deposit of the Quran?
Who knows what is the relationship between
loving the Quran and being able to make the double reflecting and ponder on the Quran
without notice, but the other one
what else can we say that how does the love the Quran
make you be able to make the devil of the Quran
acting is going to come with it because if you love it, you're going to act upon it and that can lead you to the Buddha's true world language again,
it could yes it can be any bank will show examples. So even your own language you can still make some some to do that when you really love the Quran. And your heart becomes attached to the Quran. You're going to find what pleasure in reading it. And once you find pleasure and you become attached to it more, then Allah subhanaw taala was started to open up for you the way the reflection and the doodle ponder was amazing. And that's it me
Think about the crowd when you make the delivery or one is it doesn't stop, you know, and it never stops. You always like, for example, you read a Surah 100 times, and then you read the 101 you like, wow, I never thought about that before. It's amazing hamdulillah so the more you love the Quran, your heart becomes attached to it, you start to find pleasure and the citation when you find that pleasure, then that's when the doors are reflecting and pondering that how they'll give you an example from the dunya when a student loves to study
the nerves and we love listening to students. If somebody now
would love to study, he enjoys it, He doesn't study because he has to study like like most of us he studies because he enjoys his everyday makes module revise every day. If you're not he's enjoys he enjoys getting the books and learning and, and making sure he's gonna get a stars and all of this he's really into it. He's enjoying it, find pleasure in it the same thing. Now. When you have that relationship with the Quran, you want to benefit from it, and you seek the guidance from it and you have your heart attached. Allah is gonna open up for inshallah for the Dobro as well. They will give you four quick tips that can help you and help all of us in shelter, love the Quran more.
First of all, knowing Allah subhanaw taala having stalled after the storm to heat, proper to heat when you truly know Allah subhanho wa Taala you love Allah and you know that this Quran is the kalam of Allah subhanaw taala This is the word of Allah, it's going to make you attach more to the corners and make you love the Quran more. And then we need to remind ourselves of the greatness of the Quran. There's several example examples we mentioned some of them shortly Inshallah, perhaps in the next session, where law shows us examples of the greatness of the Quran, to the Sunnah, the promises in them shows us the importance of the Quran and the greenness of the Quran. Also, if you go back to
some of the books that I've written about the Quran, to read these type of things to revive in our hearts, the greatness of the corner when we realize the reality of the greatness of the Quran, we're going to find that we're gonna love the Quran. We have to love the Quran. We're
also seeking Allah's assistance. And there's a famous Do I have the promises elements rather long so I won't mention it. But when he asked Allah subhanaw taala, but all of his name or his name, he said, came to the way he said to make the Quran and Kenny Robbie Rubina to make the the and to make it work to make the heart
and one also do surgery to make it the immaculate spring of my heart in the light of my of my hearts. And making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala will open up for him with the Quran. So we turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala seeking Allah's assistance, to make us love the Quran and to make us from the people of the Quran. And how many of us honestly have made an improper dua for that, to sit down and to put our heads on the ground in the slot and to beg Allah to be able to understand the Quran, to be able to love the Quran, to be from the people of the Quran. When we truly turn to Allah subhanaw taala Allah Allah opens the doors for us. We have a class we have sincerity. And then what
we strive, we implement what happens a lot opens the doors. Well, ADINA, jaadu fina, learner, the unknown super learner, when hola hola mal Mazzini those who strive for us, then indeed, we will guide them to our ways.
And Allah will be with the doers of the good
that those who strive for us and indeed we will guide them to our ways, and Allah will be with the doers of good luck promise you that when you strive, Allah will be there for you, He will open up for you.
And then the fourth thing we need to realize our need for the Quran. And that's the second point I'm gonna mention Chautala in some detail, because there's seven different things. If you pay attention to Shala for this session, we have a few minutes left, and they'll go on to the next session after moving to Michel Altana there's seven different tools or tips I'm going to give you today in Chautala that if we start to implement them in our lives in the law, Allah will open up for us to be from those who make the dev board and ponder on the meanings of his book and those who truly benefit from the Quran inshallah Tada so the first thing is that we love the Quran.
The second thing is that we realize our need from the Quran or need for the Quran. Once you realize you need something, what do you do you strive for at all times. You make sure you pay attention to
when Allah subhanho wa Taala
may mentions I'm gonna mention to you in shallow Tana
three different verses
and these three different verses. Allah subhanaw taala
shows us eight of the things that we benefit from the Quran. He thinks things that we gained from the Quran and it's from human nature
we know what we get back, we work harder is
if your boss comes to you that you know that if you do this and this and this, then what
their return is going to be this, you're gonna get this raise, gonna get this bonus. What's gonna happen I'm gonna start Googling, obviously pay attention a little bit earlier a little bit later. Make sure the work is a bit more organized, make sure my phone is in my drawer during working hours. I'm not on my whatsapp and things like that. Now I'm working hard. There's bonuses involved, there's benefits. And you should be doing anyways by the way, you're not supposed to be using your phone during working hours, but now we become disciplined we become, we become mashallah because there's benefits involved now. So here Allah subhanaw taala Quran gives us these examples, and this verse
and sort of units, pay attention to the verse and tell me how many different benefits we take from this verse. So do some to the Brunella do a little bit of reflecting together. Allah subhana wa Tada said, yeah, you have Ness, oh mankind, God gedcom more either to mirabito, mushy Ferroni, Matthew sudo, whoo hoo, the Warahmatullah meaning that all mankind, there has come to you from your Lord, good advice, and healing. For that which is in the breast of men and guidance and mercy for the believers having different benefits in this verse that we gain from the Quran
for you can understand the British accent, he said for four different things.
They say a bunch of the four
becomes gonna hang around them enough. So I know what he meant for different benefits. The first is what it's similar either. It's good advice. It's a reminder to you, how many of us don't need to be reminded. And sometimes we forget open process materials, right? There's the answer. There's the reminders about stuff Allah, I shouldn't have been doing that the verse that I needed came to me
the more that came to you. And then she fairly methods to do it heals what's in the hearts.
People have all the spiritual problems, and they have all these emotional problems. This is the Quran and she flatly refused to do so promise from Allah subhanho wa taala. And it's true that it's what guidance and it's Rama, mercy for the believers. How many of us don't need these four things.
We can't survive without them. We need a we need these four things is the rule. It's a necessity. So here's four of the benefits that we gain from the Quran. And another verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala
you know, is it that last one Shalom
and another verse, Allah subhanaw taala said Yeah, you're a nurse, but Gen Con board hurdle mirror have become one Zelner la con Nora Medina, all mankind conclusive clear proof has come to you, from your Lord and we have sent down to you a clear light, how many benefits and desire
to have them then it's brought heard
it's conclusive proof. And we have what you call us. Everything in the world becomes clear.
The purpose of life How do we know it? In the Quran can make clear to us what is right what is wrong? How do we know it's in the Quran? If we wanted to be the brothers who are from the dollar team, give dower What's the biggest way to the best way to give Dawa through the Quran is boron.
We need the boron in our life. And we're going to show you some limitations on the next session. And once you have this board home with you and becomes part of your life, how it's gonna help you and certain things you face because the Quran is with you right away the eye. The answer comes to you right away. Because you live in with the Quran. You reflect on the Quran Chautala and it's
also Nora mobila That's clear light from Allah subhanaw taala all of us need that know in our lives, that light in our lives. And the last verse Who mentioned the shadow Tonto and
when Allah subhanaw taala said in Surah to the surah in the huddle Quran, yeah de bility Aqua meuble she will move many Elenia mana, Salah had the unknown agilon Kibera that indeed this Quran guide so that which is most suitable, and it gives glad tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds, that they will have a great reward, how many benefits to as well, that what yeah, the the gods that which is what better, guys the best way, the best way of life, and it gives the glad tidings to you.
They will, it gives glad tidings to those who do the good deeds and let me hammer on a solid hat there, what are they going to get in return, because they have the lens and importance is that we know we leave some of the Shekhawati in the desires of the dunya that we get that glad tidy, that you're gonna get rewarded for in the end hamdulillah without able to limit your pain, the good ending is for those who have the tough one McGuffey so this Quran also gives us those glad tidings of what we're going to get in return for the reward for the good deeds we're doing in general Tada. So if you notice in these three verses, how many benefits, eight benefits that are absolute
necessities do realize we have to have them in our lives. So once we realize our need for the Quran, and how much we need these things will become
more attached to the Quran and we become more attached to the Quran and we love the Quran. Then we're going to start to be able to open up che che now we'll just open up just the beginning to be able to make the double in general Tala and we mentioned the other five points and Chautala in the next session after maghrib until then Allah knows best Allah animal Salah will send him about a candidate when Muhammad which is a Commonwealth era
