Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah while he was suck the heat or whatever, but shall we'll continue and our second session and our introduction to the double Quran and we said inshallah Tada after we diagnose some of the problems that we have a reason we're not benefiting from the Quran, you see that we have seven practical steps or tools that if we use them in general Tada we're going to find that our life is going to change with the Quran. And it's going to open up for us in general Tana the double pondering and reflecting sitting long times and enjoying and finding pleasure in reading the Quran. In general Tanner, first of all, the first two what were the
who can remind me
so the first thing is what
we love the Quran, we filled our hearts with the hope with the love of the plot. And the second thing we said is what?
You as part of it,
who can remember exactly what we said guidance was one of the things
we say we have to realize our need for the Quran
and how much we need the Quran and from the overseas the guidance that will come from Channel Donna. The third thing that's going to help us in making the double and shallow Tiana
is learning how to read the Quran properly.
And this has a huge impact on being able to understand the Quran is to be able to read it properly.
In the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and this idea,
it's amazing. The disciple is a Muslim, where it shows us that the level that we can reach will be at if we become we excel in the Quran recitation of the Quran, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said end of the Apollo Quran whoo hoo Amma who don't be one who reads the Quran and he is proficient in it, that he will be with a Cephalon Quran and Bharara He will be with the honorable scribes mean the angels review with the angels because he worked perfected the citation of the Quran, and the dunya to the best of his ability. Obviously, we talked about perfecting the citation, what is the most important thing because right away, we have the wrong understanding what it means
to have the correct citation, we automatically go to the beautiful voice, whereas the bit of a voice comes from home from Allah subhanho wa Taala there's certain things you can do to beautify your voice. Usually there need the beauty in the voice. It's not something that we can choose ourselves. This is Favell, Allah subhanho wa Taala gives to certain bodies, but any body or any person who reads the Quran can learn how to read it properly. With the Mikado, the first thing is to be able to pronounce the the Quran correctly. That's part of putting in the time putting in the effort to know how to read the Quran correctly to the best of our ability in shadow Tyler, the what happens as
we're going through this stage, that's if we reach it, we become
very strong and we become very proficient in the Quran. What about if we're having trouble reading it, he said at least say that well let the Accra were quiet attacker fee, who Allah He shall be the one who recites it, and he finds it difficulty. You'll see he's he's making mistakes as he's reading it. And he's finding difficulty as he's learning it.
What is he getting returned? No. Algernon, he gets to rewards and Hamdulillah. So as you're getting to that high level, you're getting to rewards. Once you get there, we can sit down and once you get there soltana You will be at the level of being with the angels. Something amazing has been received the gifts
are one of my trips to Erma last year, from one of the machines.
It was a book about the Quran, and I kept looking at the title and I'm traveling, so I never got a chance to sit down with the book itself. And the book was is well 530 pages so big book. I didn't understand what it meant by the title. So I opened up and I read it the introduction and read it was about 1015 pages and Subhanallah the book was about the impact that reciting the Quran correctly has upon the Yamuna the acting upon the Quran. I never thought about that, but doing the detail of how putting in that effort to be able to recite the Quran properly, it will lead you to be able to act upon the Quran and then to be able to to ponder and reflect upon the horn as well so so I'm gonna
that's a book I hope to finish soon inshAllah 530 pages about how reciting the Quran. He properly has the impact on acting upon it and pondering and contemplating on the Quran as well. After we learn how to read the Quran properly, we come to the fourth thing and as understanding the meanings,
we talk about understanding the meanings. You have the general Tafseer itself and then the who we're talking about, but
You need to have the general tafsir in order to be able to reach the to double. And obviously one of the keys once again, we go back to it the Arabic language to understand understand the Quran itself, but even spell it in your own language. I remember a new Muslim
who was very good in the Quran, but they couldn't speak Arabic. And even though the citation the power wasn't really that good in the beginning, but they used to always go back to their language, and they will study the Tafseer. And they understood it. Later, they took a course and the Tafseer of the Quran, where they started to learn just the basic meanings. So the Arabic wasn't great, but it became better. And at the same time, before that, they had learned how to read the Quran properly. Remember, they went into an institute to learn by the no Rania, so learn how to read the Quran properly, the resuscitation became good in the Quran. And then he started to learn the basic
meanings of the Quran. Now, when he's speaking about the Tafseer is actually pretty good there. And he, even though the Arabic wasn't great, but they had some understanding of some of the Arabic and through their own language, they will understand the Quran pretty good. So when once you start to have that general Tafseer, that general understanding of the Quran, you're going to find that that's going to help you lead you to the to the book, but if you don't understand as we said the meanings and it becomes difficult to really grasp it and then be able to understand it to go deeper into the debris itself. And after we learn the meanings, I'm going very quick on some of these things, these
points without detail because the end point f1 is a bit longer. So I'm gonna put more time there in shelters why you understand what I'm not going into much detail. The fifth thing is acting upon the teachings of the Quran is that we put it into action. And we're gonna go into some more detail on that in a bit and shadow Tana when we come to the objectives of the Quran Salah. So we need to act upon the Quran, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When I showed the Allahu Allah was asked about his whole look, what was the manners of the process? And why don't you say can afford the whole Quran, there is manners of that of the Quran, a implementation of the teachings of the Quran.
He is a command to do something good. There is a commitment that this is the good way that you'll find that the province of centum is the one who's implementing it. This is what you need to stay away from these are from the evil things. The province says he's the farthest person from that is the Quran and actually
putting the Quran into action. This was the province of Allah who it was sending something
very beautiful the shekel Islam even to me, Rahim Allah Tala. He said. He said well, not lumen. Hua, and he was mcglue What is the objective? What do we want to gain from the Quran? We read the Quran. He said, For for more money, he will haven't be understanding its meanings and putting them into action. Understand the meanings of the colors what's not to this what your objective is when you read, the main objective is to understand its meanings, and then to put them into actions. And then he said the lamp took on her the himid however, he left me a comment earlier me with D if this isn't the concern or the objective of the one who's memorizing the Quran because many of us memorize
sorrows from the Quran, many of us in our children to learn how to memorize the Quran. But he said if the objective is not this, they need to understand its meanings and then put them into action. He said that he wouldn't be from the people of knowledge and the people of Deen because the pure pure the true people of knowledge that will be able to deem they're the ones who understand and put into action.
The sixth thing inshallah that will help us in understanding and concentrate on the Quran
is to revive
them men heard of the Sahaba when it comes to dealing with the Quran
and very rarely do we hear anyone talk about this? The man Hajj of the Sahaba and dealing with the Quran
they said when you enter into
when you entered in Medina during the nighttime, they said it was us hear the sound is like a beehive. The sound of like the you know the beehive of the bees are buzzing around the hive. What is the buzzing sound that you're hearing? It's the Quran coming from the houses of the Sahaba during the night, they're getting up and praying. As they say they will be really bad. They weren't worshipers at night, and they were lions and soldiers and true men during the day. Probably Allah Allah. They will read it and recite during the night and they were put into action during the day. But what was the methodology? How did they get to this level? That's the point that we see this as
the end result.
How do they reach that level? And this is very important from what about dimension? These first those first point especially because the mistakes that we're making when it comes to the Halaqaat of the Quran, which were when our children going to memorize the Quran,
you will find that the majority of Muslims today are memorizing just Rama.
He's 49 and he's still memorizing just so you meet him when he's fit.
The six he still monitor his answers, even though he memorized all of us when he was six or seven years old, but he forgot it throughout the years he keeps coming back to it, forget it becomes busy with the dunya again, then he comes back and like this, and he said just so happened this whole life. Why is this even though he memorizing resume because he didn't follow the methodology, the message of the Sahaba look at this narration when John De Alba, Julie rhodiola, who and he said we were with the province of Salem and we were young boys,
young Bucha young boys
and he said
Fatah elemental Eman cobbler and an element of Quran that we learned the man
first before we learned the Quran
the difference now we want to force the Quran Quran held his head memorized. And we think the molana strategy sometimes with the stick, memorize with a stick. So you think he's gonna love the Quran
in the minds that really there and then he leaves it later. Here is that we remember we learned the Eman first and then we learn the Quran Thumma terminal Quran physique, NaVi Eman and then we learn the Quran after that. So we increased in our Eman with the Quran.
So once again we talked about how we can love the Quran the beginning what was the first thing we said, knowing Allah subhana wa Tada the Imam to either happy that when that is strong in the heart, then you're going to be able to benefit from the Quran. So once you have strong Eman, you know Allah subhanho wa Taala then you're going to love the Quran and you're gonna want to learn the Quran. And once you learn the Quran, then with the Eman as they said the Sahaba as it Nebby Eman then we increased our iman.
So this is the first thing from the methodology that we need to revive in our lives. Strengthen our Eman first
and then we focus on the Quran. Or we do them together. We don't run Quran and then don't focus on the email.
So the man is the key. The second thing is
how they used to learn the Quran. It was narrative that Earth man and Masaru the wave and carb, all of them said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would read to them the 1010 verses, and they wouldn't leave those 10 verses and go on to the next ones until what they learn the meanings, and they put them into action.
The health for us has become what a race, I'm gonna Saba, let's get to the end, see how fast we can get to the end, we'll read the Quran or even not have the objective is how we can get to the end. We're gonna try to
think about the hot Mahatma so far sometimes
read like that, because we want to get to the end. Even though it's something important that we should read the entire point at least once a month. This is the minimum as the scholar said, but even if we read part of the Quran only will read it properly. And we understood some of the meanings and we put them into action. We reflected on it. It's better than reading the title Quran, even as some of the narrations we have with us with the scholar said to read one ayah
and to ponder on its meaning is better than read the entire Quran without pondering understanding anything, just that they want.
So if we were to revive this in our lives, and especially this actually for us, on the church, us who here not the budget as much as can go quicker the churches, the uncles,
the older brothers, because we're not gonna remember we're busy, we're not gonna memorize fascinating, well, we lost that opportunity. But if we take 10 eyes, and we sit down, we understand its meaning.
We sit down and look at somebody's eye and we say, I don't understand this this more weird is it mean? We look? It's right there online. If you go to quantum.com How many different tools do you have there on the top and on the right hand corner, the word for word, the different types here we have McCarthy and now aside, these come out of his mouth as a completely other side, the or as part of it only this out. They've set aside the English one, you know, not only we I mean it's coming out Hamdulillah. So we have these amazing TEF seeds. And we just sit down with these 10 verses. we memorize these 10 verses, we understand his meanings. Make sure that we're putting any of the
teachings we're putting them into action, this and then we go on to the next step. So this I was on a race. That's why it was narrated that
I've done over the OMA, he spent eight years
we sort of baccarat what does it mean to use not memorizing something you use memorization, I can do that and, and a month? Here you're gonna do in a month, but did you learn anything from it? Did you put anything at action from it? Or it's just memorizing. So here's these these are my learning the meanings, putting them to action. So we need to realize that it's not a race we need to revive this message in our life of the heavy strongman. And then after that, the issue of
the 10 iron methodology of the south and we start to focus on the meanings understand them. Like I said, if you do the like we said, we say you go online, it's not difficult to do because the word is written right there in Arabic and right next to an English. It says the media shows you the route shows you what's right.
And as they have the expression in Arabic, magenta Widjaja wherever Sirius will file, if you really want to do you sit down with it, learn these 10 ideas and then you go into the net
Next, you're going to find a lot of buttock, a lot of hip and understanding and shallow time in the Quran. The seventh thing, my dear brothers is understanding the objectives of the Quran.
And one of the mushiya when he wrote about the morality of the double the keys that open up to the double, he mentioned that there are five main reasons why or five main objectives of reading the Quran, if we would ask now, what do you want to gain from reading the Quran? What will most people say?
Is this one of the objectives? Yes. Is it the only objective? No, is it the most important objective? Nope.
It's even come to the point now where people count the throw up edges. And I'm gonna show you how to do that, by the way, just as a benefit, but you have some mishaps that are printed. Now, they show you the amount of hassle that you got at the end of the page. And people are adding up the bassinet. You'll find some people and I will actually this morning as he breaks up the calculator. Okay, I wish I got I got 500,000 has an ad today.
It's it's my fault is this protected and Shala it's in your scale of good deeds. I can only to to know exactly how many but it isn't Shalom there's gonna be an Allah will give you more inshallah vanilla.
So that's one of the objectives no doubt it is it's important. But there's more important objectives. And the chef he get he put it into
and in some of the scholars are doing a memorize things do to put it into different letters to help you memorize it. So if you want to know these five objectives in Arabic, he said it's to SHA from SHA you have the third and then the meme, then the sheen, and then the double aim, the two items and the end. So what does this mean? The third is the Philip, as we talked about the idea, and the meme is the manager. And what is the manager manager? We'll mention it shortly. But I want you to make sure you're paying attention. So you know what you don't understand what menagerie means. We'll talk about an imminent show.
Then, the sheen is the shifa the cure from the Quran. And then the two ions and family and knowledge and Amel was to put into action. These are the main five objectives, obviously so that Allah will be pleased with us, Allah will be happy with us comes into the lab. They will come closer to Allah it could also fall into the throat. So let's talk about these objectives and Chautala in some detail
Scheffel Islam even Tamia Rahim Allah Tada He mentioned something amazing.
He said Manta Debreu Quran Barban and who the men who to obey Allah Who triple Huck.
He said that whoever reads the Quran with the devil reflecting on its meanings, and he is seeking good guidance from from from from from reading the Quran, that it will come clear to him the way of the truth, but it will how can we conclude Him? If we want to truly be guidance, we say 17 times a day Dina said authenticity, we have to look for the guidance. And the main place to look is in the Quran. If our intention is to be guided, then Allah subhanaw taala opened up for us and that's that falls into the element that part they were talking about. The first thing we're going to mention from them not in order we mentioned in a different order, where to put them first of all is reading
the Quran for and for knowledge to gain knowledge from them.
And we talked about the importance of this and we said this is why Allah told us he said to Quran depth and diversity mentioned several times already included salt key taboo and zeal now who Lake move out upon the a double it a bless a book that we've sent down to you to reflect on its meanings. Is the objective is what was sent down for us to reflect on his meanings to learn it
even was Rudra the Allahu and he said he The ultimate aim from through her Quran for in vain. Nephi lol Oh, well, you know, well actually, if you want the knowledge, he said the focus on the Quran because as the knowledge of those who were before us and those who will come after all of the knowledge is there in the Quran. The Quran has the fundamentals of everything.
And has it been Ali? Radi Allahu Allah, as you mentioned earlier, he said how did they used him who remembers what he said? How do they used to read the Quran?
Like it was what
they said the He said those who will be for you, they would read the Quran like it was really sad.
Just like you read your messages now. When you open up your email, you're going up the Facebook you have brothers
and then they read all the comments that people have read. This is their messages people reflect on them carefully and closely in detail. This allows us to read the Quran and the reading for knowledge to understand what is the law asking, oh commanded me to do. What is which way is the law showing? What does he tell me to stay away from putting
It's action so that's how they would read the Quran and Husserl bursary Rahim Allah Tana.
He said, Mearns, Allahu ala Illa who you hit Goya and, and your LMP we alum FEMA, FEMA and salat wa ala the behalf that there's no verse that Allah has sent down except for he loves for us to understand and know why it was sent down. And what is the reason why it was sent down? And what is the meaning behind it?
Allah subhanaw Montano loves was the research and to understand these things, to want to understand it to make the efforts. Also something very interesting that the great tapestry from Kufa Masaru people allege that what He said He said I didn't ask the companions of Mohammed source and anything. It were Elmo Phil. Welcome
to Surah Al Munna and he said that I would ask the companions of the Prophet Mohammed cisilion anything, and I will find the knowledge that was in the Quran. But he said, Our knowledge has become less is the third reason our lodge has become less. We haven't reached that level. Where we know that answer for everything is in the Quran.
There was a story that happened one scholar, he went
to a restaurant and it was a Christian who understood from the Quran read from the Quran, and he wanted to challenge him in front of the people.
So he said that you Muslims claim that everything is in the Quran, the answer for everything is in the Quran. And he said, Yes, this is true, because he has knowledge he has the opinion certainty. So he knows that and what's meant by this obviously, the foundation, the fundamentals, not everything in detail, because even the solid is it there in detail detail. No, it's just the basic fundamentals of the solid or the order for the solid is there but how to pray the details is in the Sunnah of Rasulullah Zeus and so they asked him they said, he said okay, if everything's in the Quran, he said this dish that you're eating
right now, what do you say, chicken biryani or something? Whatever the heating he said, How's it made? Show me in the Quran where this is made.
So would you say now somebody said this to you get nervous Erica, isn't it it's not in there's no recipe for chicken biryani for curry is not in the Quran. He said is there it's in the Quran is the scholar said this?
How can it be in the Quran? Even his students were like, What is he talking about? Right? He said I'll show you. So he called the chef.
And he asked him he said,
How was this dish made? What are the ingredients? What do you How did you make? These ingredients are 123 and I made it like this 123? He said, Allah told us first Oh ALLAH decree and Kuta Mata Alamo as the people of knowledge. He's the scholar of food. He's the one who made it. He's one understands it. So the basic is there. And that's and first degree. Obviously, we're talking about the main step zero is the people when you don't understand somebody, what do you do? You go as the scholars and they show you right? But nonetheless the same time, even if the affairs in the dunya if we want to know something? Also, we think we ask how did the scholars reach the scholars of Islam?
Are the Muslim scholars, the early Muslim scholars who excelled in affairs of the dunya as well?
Where did the origine come from? And medicine and NGO all back to the Quran? Because the Quran encouraged us as Muslims to ask the research Wi Fi unfussy Camilla Fela tube zero and yourself and look at this Krishna, let's talk about our creation of the body and human body. So they started to get into the anatomy to get into this and do that all of these things they reflected on the universe, how did they get so good in astronomy, and all of these things, all of these inventions that were that were founded the foundation laid down by Muslims because the Quran encourages you to go to look into this stuff.
So the knowledge of everything the basics is there in the Quran.
And the knowledge that we're talking about that we want to gain
from reciting the Quran is the one that gets put into action. The one that has an impact on us, Eddie mama the heavy or hey mo Tyler, when he was giving the tip Gemma the biography of Al Imam and felida miniapp, who we mentioned earlier, Rahim Allah.
He talked about how he used to always break down into tears, and he will be so affected, so impacted by the Quran.
And he said something amazing. He said, Well, you owe me. Ilana was really helpful when he said you want What do you want from knowledge except for what Alphaville has reached? This with this the objective of knowledge is to reach that level and it's what Allah says no Quran. In my actual law, I mean a by the heat, and no one wants to fear Allah from His servants or the unima. The scholars one who truly know Allah.
Those who truly understand the deen of Allah subhanho wa taala. These are the ones this is the impact. And it's not about any issue of knowledge whenever it's not about
gaining information. That's only part of but what's meant by the knowledge
It is important as we come together we study. You come in you study we share document. It's important that we gain information, no doubt. What's supposed to happen. It's supposed to increase our Eman is supposed to increase our ERP. And as Jeff Islam Rahim Allah Tala Tamia said, once you have those two al Eman will up. The two they go together. And how do we increase the amount and the opinion to the knowledge? He said will bill Imani Bill Imani Willie, a beanie, he, as you now know, le Mama 15 That you will become through the you're a man in your opinion, certainly you will become from the leaders of the region are meaning you will reach the high levels of the religion to those
two. And obviously the key to those two is starts with the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala and the dean of a law. So it's important that we focus on reading the Quran, one of the scholars mentioned something amazing. So how can we gain that knowledge? He said, look at the student, the night of the exam. How is the student name exam, he's got he's got a blue pen, a red pen, he's got a yellow highlighter, orange highlighter, the pink highlighter, he's ready different things. He's going through the books making sure we didn't miss anything. The same thing when you read the Quran without the highlighters.
That's your you go through it. And you're you examine it? Is it just like the or like the employee who goes through the rules, the lawyer who goes through the laws to make sure he understands it properly. So he knows how to win the case in court. The same thing that we want that same down is that in depth knowledge where we go in and we look into it and we're able to abstract the knowledge and then put it into action. So this is the issue of the knowledge of the Quran the objective of knowledge. The second issue we said is what the importance of the action and acting upon the Quran.
Allah Nabi Paul and he mentioned for those who had memorized the Quran, he said act upon the Quran, I mean it will be for in the Milan man Anila Bhima Alim wa for L mu m Allah who he said act upon the Quran, Toba Hamilton Quran to memorize the Quran. He said act upon the Quran. He said because the scholar he said he is the one who acts upon what he knows and that his knowledge is in accordance with what with his actions,
putting the the knowledge into actions. Al Hassan Al bacillary Rahim Allah Tala.
He said in the older nurse behind the Quran, Manitoba, Allahu Allah me Jaco. Subhan Allah.
He said that people are the most right to the Quran may consider to be from the people of the Quran are the ones who act upon it, and even if they don't read it.
Why is he saying this now? You think reading isn't important is obviously it is as we were talking about here today, but the most important element of the Quran is acting upon it. Therefore the one who puts into action he's the best.
The one who puts into action, he is the best and has it even Ali wrote the Allahu Allahu Allah. He said April Quran, Manohar. Willemijn, Huck Felisa. He said, read the Quran as long as it is forbidding meaning if you see someone's haram, you stay away from it. He said, so it's not forbidding you, then it's not real is not real title. It's not real, real citation. Neither a citation that doesn't lead to Amman doesn't need to put an action. It's not real, real citation. And le Mamilla Judy, Rahimullah Tana, he said that the movement the believer reads the Quran, you add the big enough to teach himself manners that use himself morals, to know how he should be, this is
the objective. He said that humor to who is concerned. Now what is our concern with the Quran surah the NUS
ELive la meme
and manage unity oneness. That's our, that's our concern. That's our main objective now. And we're all those rewards gonna get in the middle. He said that his main concern needs to be how can I be from the MacDuffie? How can I be from the hotsheet? The ones who have the issue? How can I be from the Sabeti? How can I be from those who are not attached to the dunya? When will I be able to overcome my desires? This is the objective. When you come and you read the Quran, to put these things into action.
It's very important we talk about
putting things into action and understanding them
that this is our near if we really want to be able to put the knowledge into action to be able to understand the Quran. Do the Qatar blown the Quran? This needs to be our Nia when we start, we go into the Quran. Now that you're getting it inshallah
we're going to get some shifa for what's in our hot water this building needs to be able to reflect that was if you don't know Arabic.
You have time for the Arabic citation. It's important. You have little time to learn Arabic
important, but also take in your local language
and read the Deaf see, because the objective is for you to understand and then act upon it.
So if you say I'm going to study Tafseer once I learn Arabic
and you've been so you're gonna learn Arabic how many years now brother, each one of us noses though, right? Some of those 30 years 40 years once you leave and say I'm going to learn Arabic so far
and now the good thing is he knows from the Arabic letters is seen and so far, I will do it. I'll do it later.
Bokhara I'll do it tomorrow. Do next day inshallah. Next year 2018 nila.
I learn Arabic. That's the same thing you said 2017. Same things in 2016. And they keep going. Don't give up at the same time.
Focus on your language until you have it because you need to focus on understanding the Quran to be able to put into action.
We said one of the objective is the monad Yeah.
What is this word? monad. Jimmy?
Is it when I get to Allah subhanaw taala
will miss any tool that you you're calling upon Allah subhanaw taala
that you're calling on Allah. How many I know Quran is there do I?
How many are the conventional and the Quran were commanded to learn to make dua to the what
a lot always make dua, doing what
what Allah Hill SML husana. To do will be here.
Allah has the beautiful names. So make dua to Allah to these names. When you focus on the meaning of the if any of these ayat that always had the Beautiful Names of Allah subhanho wa taala, you understand how to implement these names. And then you implement them in your everyday life, when you call them Allah subhanaw taala. This is the key objective. We set up knowledge not to come together and to just gain knowledge, but how we put into action. And one of the mistakes that we make. Those who follow the middle half of the self is many times we focus on learning the correct data and refuting the people of Buddha, which is important. But we don't focus on the implementation as much
as we should, especially when it comes to Allah's names, learning the meanings and putting them to action,
having the impact on us, because the main objective of the tweet is the ethics, the impact and the effect that has on me in my life. Now just didn't know that a law, how we confirm the names and how we exalt Allah subhanaw taala that's the foundation.
But unfortunately, sometimes we learn that and we stay there. It comes action now to put into action to put this athlete into action in our lives and in how we act to make law. The man has the methodology of our life. This is what we need to focus on in show butanna and putting into action. So the Murgia we said
Imam Abdullah Mubarak, he said I asked who piano 31 Grady Imam asked another great email. He said that a person when he stands in the Salat, what should be his intention with what he recites? And when he prays? He said yeah, and we and you'd add Europe the whole intention is to make this manager tool also.
That you feel the meanings. We talked we talked about, for example, Surah Fatiha.
You see, sort of the Fatiha gives you
an introduction into how to make dua.
How do we start the first few is
what are these i
And Hamlet stana praising Allah subhana wa, Rahmani Raheem, Allah's names attributes Greatness of Allah Maliki with the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala he cannot go do what you can to stay which is the core of Leila and Allah.
This is the covenant of the true believer La Ilaha illa Allah to eat we put it in it is we make the commitment to Allah subhanaw taala II can Abu via can stain immediately after what do we do? We put after the praise after the Peurto heat we put into action with what do
we need to feel it smell it and look at the beauty of the liquid even the letter
where does it come from inside you feel it right away? It Dena Bella and then you think about a Siddhartha Mr. B. What is the Celtic salata Latina and I'm Danny Who are they?
The prophets and then follow us soil Hey Ya Allah make us from the hill we feel it we make we make
and then we want to stay away from being like a McDo Valley and we'll have Bali the Allah save us to be firm. We feel the meanings. Is the manager make it to Allah subhanho wa Taala through the solid. He may or may not be on him. Hello Tyler. He said either errata LNT FADEL Quran if you really want to benefit from the Quran, pay attention to these three things. He said much Matt
alberca and the Tilawat he was CMRA. He said to gather your heart as you're reciting and hearing the Quran, meaning you focused. You focus on what is being read or with what you're listening to. Well, the semuc He wants again to listen closely. Listen carefully, meaning pay attention. So your hearts there, you're not thinking about things from outside and now you're paying attention and you're concentrating now. Well, hello, hello Manu, hottie boo be MonteCarlo OB Subhana wa Khalili and then your focus is one who's being spoken to directly
and this will be talking about the beginning of this how to sell if you look at the as resell as things, messages, they're coming from Allah subhanaw taala to them directly. Just like now, if you were to go to anybody important, anybody?
Would you take out your telephone as they're talking to you?
Would you look around, if you're with a president, the CEO, a leader, you're going to be looking around, he's talking to you, or he's talking to you to do like this
wouldn't be edit. So when you're with the Quran, you're in the salad and we're playing with this we're moving that we're not focusing your hearts, they're your mind's there you're focusing and then you are focusing on this is coming from Allah subhanaw taala he might be a real pain he said, that
is when this happens, this will be how you will be impacted and benefit from the Quran. Once you have these things,
you're focused, you're concentrating your hearts there, your minds there, and then you're receiving them from Allah subhanaw taala these messages, this is how you will benefit in shallow Tana from the Quran. The fourth objective
is the edge of the Toa but hamdulillah no doubt that's one of the main objectives that we want to gain no doubt we will be this is a great opportunity for us to listen for the Quran to read from the Quran. How many rewards you'll get for one page as if it I don't like it because I don't want you guys to go home and countless hours ago, it's easier. I send you it's jazz or jazz or it is
roughly how many has an ad do we get?
For one page of the Quran? First of all, what is the edge of one letter of the Quran?
10 escena. We know from the Hadith the process. By the said if you were to look at the most up we have Birmingham, Alabama and make more love.
You'll see that each page has about 15 lines.
Each line has about 32 letters.
And so if you were to multiply 32 by 15, how much
480. So each line is about what 480 has a net. So per page, we'll have a 4800 has a net. And then if you added up a jutsu how many pages roughly
20 pages. So each jitsu is roughly about 9090 6000 has an add up to 100. Well, you're about evaluation and law increases do we want some data? So that's just a reward you get for reading it. So what if you add to that as well? Making the double? What if you add on that searching for guidance? What if you're searching for knowledge? And then you go and put into knowledge? Imagine how it's gonna keep getting multiplied is what Allah subhanaw taala wants us to do. That's why the province has 11 Several Hadith he taught us the best of us who the one who does work with the Quran,
learns it, and then teachers the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He also told us to read the Quran because what happens for human TM when it comes as what Shafi Allah as heavy as it as an interceded for you, okay, several Hadith, Rama time, as I'm not gonna have a whole bunch of mentioned here and different ways the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with us to remind us and also from the Sahaba, who also told us different statements about the importance of reading the Quran, but I'll read one statement from Abu Huraira it's very important. And if we take this home with us tonight with Abu Huraira Radi Allahu Allah is about to tell us for our households, campaign
objective in really what we really want for ourselves and for our family. Want to be successful? We want to have good blessed households. He said, Well, the Allahu
La Tula the youth Luffy Kitab Allah Catherdral Cairo. Well, 100 l. mela acre? Well, hello Jasmine who are Shelby that the house where the Quran is read.
The house with the Quran is read. He said that there's a lot of hail a lot of good in that household. And the angels come there to the household and the shayateen run away from it.
How many of us don't want well how many of us want this for our household?
One of us no doubt.
This is what the book of Allah subhanaw taala household
And then he said when the beta dilla vikita. He said the one the house with the book of Allah has not recite it back.
And he was just like the tightness they would if you don't feel good inside, right? He said book early
and he they don't feel good inside they have you found the one emotionally that good and I'm feeling good, I'm having a bad day and this and he said that there's not much later in that household now much good. And the shayateen are there and the angels leave the opposite of the first household. This is the impact of the Quran being recited in the household. And one of the beautiful stories that I heard from, from one of the scholars and the times we live in, not from the Senate, because we're in the Senate, where were they were our days
a brother when he suddenly got married. And I saw this on a TV show maybe 10 years ago, I don't know where he is now Mashallah. But
he said that he was long his relationship with the Quran in his house and his family. He said that
he made a commit with his wife
that they would read the Quran together as a couple, husband and wife every day. How would you think they should read?
To read the Quran? We're not gonna make it too difficult for ourselves because we want to follow the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu said Habibollah man Allah I don't know how when the most beloved actions to a lot are the consistent ones even if the smaller number so we want to be consistent so Jesus was gonna be too much. There is a naked tour robots,
to robot HMI robots and
AI robots for was in his eighth energy Zoo. So that means they finished the job how many days?
And what four days, four days. So
but they were consistent. He said until today me and my wife have read the Quran together 156 customers
what if it six times imagine the brokers and blessings in their house imagine impact on the rural kids when they see mom and Baba everyday consistent reading that is a small amounts that Allah was about five pages, if I did not take much time reading together, but the house is gonna be a house of Baraka. So no doubt the reward. We know the great reward that we're going to get for reading the Quran. And then we said the last objective is what the Shiva that we seek the Shiva from the Quran, and the Shiva the cure that the Quran gives to the hearts.
First of all, it protects us from the shadows. And then it protects us from the Shadow Hearts, the shadow at the lust and the desires. The Quran gives you directions, it gives you direction in life. It shows you the right way. It shows you what to stay away from it makes you feel good when you read this it lets the amazing thing of the Quran. And I told you my story as a teacher it is I go to listening to the Quran in the morning when I go to school listening to on the way back we the only thing that kept me sane was the difficulty you face in life. We always look if you put the Quran in Wallah you will be so relaxed. The Quran is it's amazing. non Muslims are called non Muslims
who listen to the Quran who have said this has been proven. I used to always hear something which I didn't understand before. I mean, I understood it but I didn't have what they would call it and, and knowledge wise, it's not actually
what is now that is its highest net mean direct. So if I hear somebody else saying, Neil, the chicken best addition, Ben said that.
But if I heard it from him directly, has a big impact on me, doesn't it? I can tell you some stories. Some things I heard from the chef, some sort of the head was shaking with me and Rahim Allah had imagined he said to me directly has the impact on me.
So here, I met a brother, a Sudanese brother who had been living in New York because I had heard many times people say we traveled to New York and we hear that a lot of shake up their boss adapt to some other himolla
Going back to me, perfecting
this from the actions that Allah loves.
And when you do something, you perfect it
and he said Subhan Allah said that we hear the recitation of Shahab basit non Muslims listening to it. I didn't know. But I met his brother. He said, I moved back to Sudan. Why is that because I got shot. I got robbed in a store. I got shot. So I sold the short I store it I came back. He said to me, I was making the dollars but I said it's better to be alive and move back to the Muslim country. So Subhanallah he said that in his store, he said he will put on the morning as he was cleaning open it before he opened the store. He would put on or you put on the recitals or shut up the buzzer. himolla. And he says Subhanallah he said the people would come and they would stand in line. Like
they were listening. And he said there's a window and one of the apartments across the street. He would open up and listen. He said
didn't know if they were listening or not. So when they turn it off and say what are you doing so we're gonna listen is we're going to listen for and it is sure enough the guy from the apartment across the street came in and made copies of the cassette tape and pass it out for free in a in a piece of video. You pass it out to these non Muslims, and they will listen to it. Listen, if we relax. I met one man, he said that the Muslim I was in prison with my brother got into some trouble. And he went to prison in America. He said I couldn't sleep. He said only I can sleep at night is when he will recite the Quran
is that we'll just relax the funnel. So what but we have this accountability? So she felt for us? We said it protects us from the shower to the Shewhart.
And in many of the misconceptions that people have
about about the deen about Allah subhanaw taala the answers right there in the Quran. Because we don't have relationship with the Quran. We're not able to abstract these benefits and to be able to benefit from it. Also, obviously the issue we set up the
the the unstable myths that people have and the emotional diseases that people have, it's because they've turned away from the Quran, listening to the Quran, reciting the Quran, it's gonna make you relax inside. Even Yeah, one for the issue of curing the body.
When you do the repair for the body, it's been proven the hadith of Rasulullah says and sometimes we find some pain, and we do the repair. And the rupee obviously gonna be for pain, it's in the body, and also for the spiritual things that we have as well. And how many people now are afflicted with different things, whether it be the evil eye, whether it be magic, whether it be gin, all of these different things people are afflicted with, and the cure is no poorer, but they're going to this doctor and that doctor now finally because we need to turn to the book of Allah subhanaw taala because this Shiva as Allah subhanaw taala described in several verses, how much time do we have
I need 55 minutes to tell you we will tell you I only have five minutes so I'll try my best shot.
I want to remove your one as we're about to leave today inshallah so misconception when it comes to the issue of making the Dobro Nakara
many people say after the Quran is difficult to understand.
Is this true or not?
What does the law say about it? So go once again go back to the Quran. Allah tells us what occurred Yes, sir, no Quran, the vicar for Helman with that we have made the Quran easy
for remembrance. So is there anyone who remember here without a clear this and it's something that that's easy.
And if you look also, we'll also plan on Wattana commanded us to make what? To act upon the Quran and to make to double up on the Quran. So something difficult, how can we understand it, it's not possible. You see, it will be it will be contradictory for Allah to send the last scripture to all of mankind, and to order you to act upon it, and to order you to contemplate on his meanings.
But yet it's difficult to understand. Under the message of the Quran is clear.
The message of the Quran is easy to understand, generally speaking, the awesome if it might be a bit difficult, though some if, as Imam
Abdullah been our best one, the Allahu Anhu mentioned that there's four types of tipsy. He said the tipsy and that the out of know from their color from their sweet is clear to them, and even some of the translations itself. And I'll give you an example now and in a few minutes, Inshallah, to show you that even at our own language, we can understand these basic principles as well. Even if it's translated, the basic teaching is clear. And the second type of Deaf see if he said no, your other had to magically that you're not excused to be ignorant when it comes to it, no matter if it's an order due on English and Arabic. When Allah tells you to worship Allah and don't join partners with
him, does somebody have an excuse when he goes to a Willie, when somebody goes to a grave, there's no excuse now you're allowed to Jehovah that is the basic fundamentals of the Quran. Although Quran the companion the detailing, the former Buddha, Allah, worship Allah, what do you want from another level of Allah? The message is clear, no one has an excuse when it comes to ignorance of these basic meanings of the eye. And then he said, there's another Tafseer third type that only the scholars know in afford that only Allah knows. But as the scholar said, the majority of Tafseer fall into the first two categories, which that which is clear.
Imam even hubiera said something very, very interesting and pay attention to this. He said from Mackay, the chiffon from the traps and tricks of che Athan is he convinces the people and he or he to stay away he that he steers them away from reflecting and pondering on the Quran.
And he says that, you know, because he for his knowledge, the shaytaan is known from where to double reflecting on the Quran. Now just reading, but reading and reflecting, he knows that this is the true guidance. Therefore he tries to scarcely Okay Who are you to reflect on this? There's only for the scholars knew you will never be able to understand the Quran don't try. The objectives were learned
In our students, we want to try to understand not just memorizing, we want to be able to reflect and get to a higher level.
He said for an example and pay attention to this uncertain wisdom in the last in the last verse, verse number 21, Allah subhanho wa Taala said we're not to cut the morally unphysical Mulherin TGD we're in the law who were hired on who are the Majira was still federal law in the law before Rahim who understood this in Arabic
who he understood this in Arabic and Arabic is
nobody understood what I just read in reverse.
Brother him that he got Okay, so now I'm gonna go through an English and tell me if you can make some reflection on this and understand what Allah is telling us in this. Okay? Here, Allah subhanaw taala tells us that what you do from Korea
it's for yourself and you will find it with Allah
and then the loss of Hannah Montana said it is better and greater reward and seek forgiveness from Allah and the the laws or forgiving, All Merciful. The meaning of this verse is a difficult to understand.
Especially What is Allah saying that any good you're doing, it's not benefiting Allah Subhanallah you're gonna benefit from it. And you're going to find it with Allah subhanaw taala you'll know when you stand in front of the scale of good deeds, and seek the forgiveness of Allah Indeed, Allah is all forgiving, and Merciful. subhanaw taala so this is an example may have many examples in the Quran, then you can reflect on it. The emphasis is for you. I'm the one who's benefiting. I need to benefit from these things. And law is going to reward these sort to go deep into the reflection.
The point though, what's even better I mentioned here how many of us even myself I probably forget this even I studied it. But he said even though the Pete most people will never understand that this map here is killing me to show you where to cut demo merge zoom the
Zoom be Haley and who shot to her. What'd you do, but zoom? B He learned who does that? Oh, this is not Oh, this this ended up Arabic grammar. Most people want to understand this. But yet you can still understand the basic knowledge of this. If there's well, it's important that we don't let shaytaan Fuller's another thing quickly, I call him when it comes to. And then I have a lot here but I can say I'm running out of time. So we can ask for five more minutes. And it's okay. Punishment exists. Okay. Is that okay?
When it comes to another thing that scared the people,
when it comes to the ACA,
the different rulings see who could never understand this, which is true, you have to study faith, you have to go back to the scholars, but still even the fic is how many are there in the Quran? The scholars that is about come Semia 500 verses which talk about ACA, the verses in the Quran altogether about 6236 6236 verses. So 500 of the verses talk about ACA, fifth rulings in about 8% of the eight, the other 90% Is that okay?
But even if it means itself, go back tonight for example, and verse six, and chapter and salt in chapter five. Which is this? The idea of who?
Is it difficult to understand?
In a what what do you have to do when you when you when you pray, you just have to wash your face, wash this, wash your hands,
wipe your head and wash your feet.
So these are the four things mentioned, the AI is basic to understand this is that it's not difficult to understand the meaning of this. And then if you don't have water, what do you do? Make the NDI so you understood right away the basics. But if you reflect at the end of the verses, something very beautiful, from the wisdoms that we don't think about sometimes when it comes to thought Allah mentions at the end of this verse reflect on when you go home. It's one of the wisdoms of why we make wudu one of the objectives of why people do that is to clean our bodies. There's something different that it comes at the end of the verse, there's something that you can reflect on
yourselves when it comes to a verse For example, and sort of Bukhara when Allah says, Have you do Allah Salah was Salah Toulouse for whirpool Marilla he or anything. Here we have how many different commands?
Three, three things we have to do. First of all, how to do on a silhouette, which is to maintain with care, the obligatory prayers, pay close attention, close guard your prayers, Harvey who
do you need the need to go into deep tafsir to understand what that means? And Arabic or nor do an English it's all clear. Well salata, roofstock What does this mean? And the middle of prayer?
We're going to think right away.
Also because you have it falls in the middle right? But there is different types. Here's for the Scott has a different but this is the enchanted object. This is the most authentic view is is to do. So maybe you say I don't want to say about the book of Allah when I don't know. I would assume it's outside well
I mean, I have the lab I made the purchase which every beat every house should have the tipsy room Acadia, whether it be an outdoor English, you should definitely have in your house. And I'll tell you a story one of the scholars who came after the damage Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah have a Mullah. He was traveling, they said to a village, so he stopped and he was sleeping and he was the guests that were taking care of their guests like they used to mashallah even Hamza even till today, the Muslims take care of the guests. And he told the person of the house he said, bring me this in this volume of Tafseer media, for example, volume three, it only bring one of the volumes of cerium cathedral,
they said, I will have to FCM to get to you. He said go get it from one of the neighbors.
And he said nobody in this village has to have seen him cathedral. He got up he gathered his things. He said I won't sleep in a village doesn't have the tafsir
and they will also in your house there should be no house doesn't have the tipsy room with you. It's a blessing the Lord subhanaw taala has blessed us with this of interest into our our languages.
It's a blessing that we have you should have the English copy, you have the Urdu copy, and the Arabic copy that even you can't read it today. So you know what, I'm going to be able to read it. Like the one who bought they said one big fat guy who want to lose weight. What did you do, he bought a double x double XL shirt couldn't fit into that enclose. But he said I'm gonna fit into this is the objective and then eventually you get into it. So you have the tipsy there Arabic as well, and you'll benefit from it. So these are just examples of one of how we can benefit from the Quran. Because the Quran as the scholars mentioned, some scholars give the example of it being like
to see if you want to really benefit if you're a fisherman, you want to fish. If you just focus on the top of the water with short lines, you'll get some fish. But if you want the big fish with the big money, the real benefit where do you go deep sea fishing, isn't it? So the same thing the more you go into the Quran, the more effort you make,
the more you're going to be able to benefit from the Quran, the deeper you go in, the more you're going to get out something amazing.
That checklist lengthy moments we have several examples about that Deborah, I want to mention Inshallah, perhaps inshallah and others sitting because this is just some of the keys anyway, there's many other things as well. One of the things that helped me to start to haven't got where I want to get not even close, by the way, but I felt that I wanted to make more efforts when it came to the Quran. I felt like it was we put a lot of effort into FIP and at the Hadith all of these other subjects which is important. I said, we don't focus enough on to see it. Is this a shortcoming that we have as Muslims in our students of knowledge? And then as I was filling this,
the story which I knew from before, but I had read it again, at the time of the death of shekel Islam, Tamia, Rahim, Allah Tala, and we say shekel, Islam, even Taymiyah. They were, what are they call them Shepell Islam.
And this was the true scholar when it came to ask either Lula or B, or Sulan fic. They said he knew more and other med hubs because he was humbly but he knew in the end the Hanafi Maliki Shafi more than their own scholars, hey, any ABA, and he really is an ocean of knowledge. Well, yet, what was the thing that he regretted he said at the time was that I think he wish he had done more. He said, making to double reflecting on the book of Allah subhanaw taala because when he was put in prison, did they get did he take his books with him, didn't have any books, all he had was the Quran redware
In his mind, and in his heart, he memorized the colors. So as he was sitting there, any reflecting on is spot, so it is amazing. I wish I had spent more time in my life, he said, reflecting on the book of Allah subhanaw taala. So as Hamdulillah we have the freedom with that in prison, we have the hair in front of us Alhamdulillah and opportunity, we need to make more effort Inshallah, to learn the Quran, to act upon the Quran and to reflect upon the Quran because later on when you have a Jelsa have to double Will you sit down, you cry and you're all opens up your heart then opens up your, your, the tears in your eyes, and it comes down your face reflecting on a book of Allah
subhanaw taala it's one of the most amazing feelings that you ever find in this dunya
and Subhanallah, like we said,
what you put in is what you get out, and the more you put in, the more you're gonna find you're gonna benefit in general Tyler. So like we said from the announcement, this was an introduction. I couldn't cover everything of what I wanted to do, but even here, but inshallah hopefully is a reminder for us, and some tools and practical tools that we'll be able to put in action as an introduction to this great science that we don't focus on enough. What is the double reflecting on the book of Allah subhanaw taala and Allah knows best Allah it was someone who sent him about like, I'm going to be Muhammad
