00:00:21 --> 00:00:28

As to what follows My dear respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam, As Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:30 --> 00:00:46

what Hamdulillah that Allah subhanahu wata, Allah has allowed us together in a house of his houses. Indeed, this is a great blessing to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept from us all to forgive our sins and our shortcomings.

00:00:48 --> 00:00:54

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, tonight's lecture is titled guided by the Quran.

00:00:56 --> 00:00:59

And at the very beginning, I wanted to share with you a narration

00:01:00 --> 00:01:12

and this is the narration of urban our best solidly Allahu Anhu in which he says that the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once said,

00:01:13 --> 00:01:27

he said to you BReel Alayhis Salam mana aka Anthozoa Rana agathon, I'm emeritus Rana, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is complaining to Gibreel he says to him,

00:01:28 --> 00:01:43

What is preventing you from visiting us more than you already visit us? Because your real Alayhis Salam would visit and the reason Allahu alayhi wa sallam, when he would give him an why give him a Earth.

00:01:44 --> 00:02:30

And this is happening from time to time. So when the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam says, Why don't you visit us more? You see, this is the love of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the Quran and the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala he's eager, and he's passionate about continuously seeing Gibreel so the Judean Allah is Salam could recite onto him what Allah azza wa jal has said, that's the lovin Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had for the Quran, as though one Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching the Ummah with these words, don't you dare cut your relationship with the Quran. Gibreel is coming to me often, but I want him to come more than he already comes. So Gibreel

00:02:30 --> 00:03:16

Alehissalaam came down with an idea. And he said and this is only Lehi to Allah. Woman at 10 Zero 11 Amarillo big la Houma Bina ad now amalfitana Woman I been Ehrlich when I can on a book and ASEA Allah azza wa jal, he said and Jibreel alayhi salam, now he's saying to Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, whoever 10 Zero 11 I'm really not big that Ask the angels including myself Gibreel I only come down by the commandment of Allah azza wa jal. And so even though I'd love to come and see you all, except that we are commanded by Allah azza wa jal, and we only come down by Allah socialist command, but the narration in its entirety teaches us the attitude that the believer is supposed to

00:03:16 --> 00:04:01

have with this Quran. Where is this love that is embedded within the heart of the believer that he cannot Jani a day you would be incomplete if he doesn't hold a copy of the Quran and recite something of the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala my brothers and sisters in Islam, the day the Quran was revealed is the day in which Allah subhanahu wata, Allah's Mercy descended upon mankind. Allah azza wa jal he says well known as zero min on Quran email, who is Shiva on what I meant to live mean. Allah azza wa jal when he described this Quran, he described it as Shiva a pure, little more money in for the believers and he described it as a Ramadan as a mercy before the Quran came down.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:12

People are in chaos. People are in darkness. People are worshipping all sorts of things. They were worshipping idols and stones and rocks, and the moon and the star.

00:04:13 --> 00:05:00

They were burying their daughters alive. They were robbing one another. They were killing one another. They were oppressing one another. That's how this world the life was. It was gloomy and dark before the Quran. The day the Quran came down was the day the Mercy of Allah subhanahu wa Donna came down. And it was the day in which Allah's guidance came down to mankind. This is where this is why in the Quran Allah azza wa jal describes in the beasts Allahu Allah you are Salam. He describes him just before the Quran was revealed. And he says what we're here to tell ballin. He found you seeking. He found you seeking in a state of loss, intervene. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was there

00:05:00 --> 00:05:17

Spiritual something. He was looking for something. He wasn't satisfying spiritually. And this is why he would retreat and go to the mountain into her hello and practice solitude. For many months he was seeking Allah would describe him ballin.

00:05:18 --> 00:05:26

And the moment the Quran came down, only five Ayat came down. Allah azza wa jal would describe his state after the Quran.

00:05:27 --> 00:06:15

Who was your the Cabal learn further? He got you to do. What happened? What was the shift between ballin Tada. It was the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala when it came down, Allahu Akbar, even the one who seeks guidance in life, the one who wants to walk upon a street path upon a clear path that would lead him to the pleasure of Allah subhanahu wa the island to the Paradise has to have an intense and a strong relationship with the Quran that Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam. You saw that the Ramadan when Allah subhanahu wa taala counted the many blessings upon mankind and Elgin, you know, salted ramen. The often repeated area is phobia Yeah,

00:06:15 --> 00:06:27

Allah, you're a big Kumar to cut the burn. In this area, Allah azza wa jal and in this entire surah Allah azza wa jal is reminding mankind while Jin

00:06:28 --> 00:07:13

he's reminding them of the blessings and the fevers that has bestowed upon them at the very beginning of the surah. Allah azza wa jal records the very first blessing. He says, Man, I level Quran, that is the first blessing upon mankind. Well, Jim, is that he taught them the Quran. He sent them in Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, and he sent Jibreel with the ayat on to the heart of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he allowed the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to live among the people, until the entire message of the Quran was revealed to them and lemon Quran. That is the greatest blessing upon mankind. And then Allah azza wa jal, he says, Allah can insert

00:07:13 --> 00:08:04

and he created the human being. And if you were to look at the sequence of this surah he said, Man, I live on Quran he taught the Quran halacha inside, he created mankind, which one came first? Most definitely Allah azza wa jal created the human being first, then later on the Quran was revealed. But Allah azza wa jal, he switches this order in this ayah. And he mentions first the fact that he taught the Quran and then he spoke to the fact of greeting mankind. And that is so we can understand that Allah azza wa jal has set our purpose already from before He created us. He already decreed our purpose already. And that was the Quran. So that was the set of laws. That's the book that mankind

00:08:04 --> 00:08:51

is supposed to follow. That's the legislation and then afterwards, he created the human being. Therefore the human being was only created to fulfill this, to fulfill this book. The more you follow this book and you follow the laws of Allah azza wa jal in this book, and you develop that relationship with the Quran, then you are living your purpose, you are fulfilling your purpose. You are fulfilling that which you are created for luck about it and that is what we're learning from the very beginning of surah. Man, oh, man, I level Quran. Hello. In CERN, Allahu Akbar, my brothers and sisters in Islam. Every Friday, we read Surah Surah till karaf is to be recited every Friday. It's

00:08:51 --> 00:08:56

the recommendation of a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but have you pondered and noticed?

00:08:57 --> 00:09:10

The style in which the first aier is being made into at the very beginning Allah so actually he says Alhamdulillah Olivia and Zela Allah Abdi Hill kita Paula Biersch Allahu

00:09:12 --> 00:09:58

Allah azza wa jal he says All praise belongs to the one who revealed his book onto his sleeve, Yanni the very beginning of the Surah it is someone that is screaming out of happiness because of this Quran that he has between his hands, and hamdulillah Olivia and Santa Ana abdiel kita This is someone that is excited, someone that is full of joy and happiness, and he's screaming out Alhamdulillah for this book, Love Akbar. You know, when you receive a blessing in your life, when you get married, when your wife gives birth, when you get the job increased when in your pay when you when something you're excited you say Al Hamdulillah for this gift and this blessing. Well,

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

that's the beginning

00:10:00 --> 00:10:49

That's the attitude of the beginning of Fullarton care if it is someone who is carrying the Quran and screaming and humbly Allah for this blessing that Allah azza wa jal gave us while Emir sha Allah who he was. And he did not make any crookedness in the Quran, meaning the one who follows the Quran will be a Jana who will be straight all the upright. The further away you are from the Quran, the more crooked you become. The more deviated, the more misguided you become. The closer you are to the Quran, the closer you are to appear, you are to uprightness and steadfastness and guidance. And this is why at the very end of saltan curve, in the Levina, m n o AMILO. Solea had Ken Atla, whom Jana to

00:10:49 --> 00:11:33

fulfill don't see Newsela and Phil DOS was mentioned. And Phil DOS was mentioned only twice in the Quran. And it was mentioned that the end of Surah Al kenaf. Now put one and two together, the beginning of the surah is speaking about the person's happiness with the Quran. The end of the surah is speaking about genital fear dose, in other words, full of his Quran, commit to the laws of the Quran, and commit to the commandments of the Quran. And on the Day of Judgment, your position would be judged that will feel dose that's the message in so little curve and you want to know this path, you read what's in between so little curve, and that will give you a great clear path to understand

00:11:33 --> 00:11:37

how to get to your natural fear dose by Brothers and Sisters in Islam.

00:11:38 --> 00:12:24

With this introduction, we know the greatness of the Quran. The fact that the Quran is a mercy, it is a blessing upon mankind. It is a shifa, it is a rule. It is the soul of the believer, Allah azza wa jal he says, What can barely go hyena Eleiko, who hadn't been a marina and Quran was described as a rule as a soul. You know, if a soul is removed, a person becomes depth. And Quran is the spiritual soul which the soul of the heart meeting a person could still be alive physically, but his heart is dead, if the Quran was removed from his life, and so here, I bring your attention to a matter that we have among the soul and among the Muslims. The question is, How is your relationship with the

00:12:24 --> 00:13:13

Quran? We know the greatness of the Quran. We know the honor of the Quran. We know the virtue of the Quran and the greatness of the Quran, right? We know that a slum just a few months ago there was a person that bought a copy of the Quran in Sweden, and people get up frustrated and angry. And rightfully so of course, because the Quran is the word of Allah. No one, we don't allow anyone to dishonor the Quran rightfully so. But the very same people that are defending the honor of the Quran, what is their relationship with the Quran? What kind of relationship do you have with the Quran? How disturbing is it to know that the greatest complaint of Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:13:13 --> 00:13:22

sallam on the Day of Judgment? Is as Allah said, walk all over soon. Y'all have been Nicole Mita, who has an Khurana hoorah.

00:13:24 --> 00:13:34

How disturbing is it to know this fact? That from the greatest complains of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he directs the his law directly.

00:13:36 --> 00:13:39

Not to Jibreel or to someone else. Yeah, oh, my lord.

00:13:40 --> 00:13:44

In the comi, my people, my nation,

00:13:45 --> 00:13:55

these people that are sent to those who believed in me and those who don't believe in me, this nation of mine, it has who has an Purana Jura.

00:13:56 --> 00:14:24

They had made about this Quran, but they neglected they abandoned that module and from the word he's EULA, he should have a means to migrate to travel. Meaning it implies a great distance from the Quran. Having had nothing to do with it whatsoever. They just knew that there was a word and there was a book called Quran. And there was no practical solid relationship with this Quran.

00:14:26 --> 00:14:39

Abraham Allah, he said that the people the abandoned and neglected the Quran in five ways. Meaning what he's teaching us is that the believer is supposed to have five relationships with the Quran.

00:14:40 --> 00:14:58

The abandoned its re citation. So they didn't read it except in special occasions. Era Baba. Maybe if someone was to die if they enter the graveyard. They innovate with reading the Quran. And they apply the Sunnah times, Yanni, whatever the people are doing, they do

00:15:00 --> 00:15:02

The abandoned the RE citation of the Quran

00:15:04 --> 00:15:15

and the abandoned listening to the Quran. It is also a sunnah to listen to the Quran, and have time in which you sit and he Allah azza wa jal is commanded

00:15:16 --> 00:15:56

in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam HOD and listened to the entire Quran from the beginning to its end. And that was the very first time when Djibouti and Allah He said I was reciting a team. Wouldn't it be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would select some of the companions and say to the Quran, they recite upon me I want to hear the Quran from you. Imagine, imagine the panic that this companion would have and they would respond and say to yourself, I, I am going to read upon you and upon you it was revealed. When the peace Allahu alayhi wa sallam would say I love to hear it from other than me. Read the Allah

00:15:58 --> 00:16:01

and people have abandoned listening to the Quran.

00:16:02 --> 00:16:11

Wouldn't okay Abraham, Allah said people have abandoned at least Israel will Quran seeking treatment and cure through the Quran.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:25

To the EU when a person is sick or falls ill he rushes to the doctor to the medicine in this issue. Don't understand wrong there's no problems at all by the means go and do exercise your means as best as you want.

00:16:26 --> 00:16:39

But where is the rush to the Quran at the very beginning, when Allah azza wa jal clearly said she felt her own aura led to little movement in the Quran is a shift.

00:16:41 --> 00:16:51

It is a treatment it is a cure from spiritual diseases and physical diseases. That's what the Quran is. So the people abandon that.

00:16:53 --> 00:17:18

And the people abandoned pondering over the Quran, pondering over the Quran, pondering meaning reading and implementing, because what this pondering over the Quran means it means to implement, you read walking flat, establish a solid, then you get up and you pray select inertia. That is the highest level of pondering over the Quran to implement the Quran.

00:17:20 --> 00:17:30

And people have abandoned this, they recite and the read commandments of Allah and prove the patience of Allah azza wa jal and they are far away from that.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:36

And people have abandoned the Quran in terms of the halcomb in a

00:17:37 --> 00:18:21

at the high cumulate meaning setting this Quran as a judge between the affairs in disputes and matters. Who now when he has a dispute with someone, he says, Okay, let's go to the Quran. And please that as a judge between us, meaning we'll go to someone who understands the Quran, the rulings of the Quran sunnah, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we will say to him, our D brother, we have an issue between us, and we want Allah's ruling concerning our matter. That's long gone. Up miltenyi mo Haibo. Allah is Seeing that the people have abandoned these relationships at his time.

00:18:22 --> 00:18:46

That's what almost 700 years ago, he's complaining from that time. What has happened from that time until today Wallahi my brothers and sisters in Islam, we are in civvy loss and in greed, the loss if we do not understand what kind of relationship with supposed to have with

00:18:47 --> 00:18:56

and if we don't begin to develop and build this relationship with the Quran, I tell you something, am I bring to a reality that the majority experience and suffer?

00:18:57 --> 00:19:07

So you have people that want to recite the Quran loves the Quran, a news, the value and the worth and the owner of the Quran, but if I want to read,

00:19:08 --> 00:19:53

but he complained and says, What's the point of reading? Can I read and I read the Surah 100 times Surah Al Fatiha we read it at least 17 times in our solid blue Allahu Ahad. I memorized it when I was three years old, and I've read more than one symbol hamdulillah it's all good. But I have to read it again. Right? Why do we have to read the Quran? I've read it once and twice and three and 100 times? Isn't? I want to answer this question with you. Because when you have this question, and you don't find an answer for it, that means there is a confusion that needs to be clarified. What is this confusion? Why do we read the Quran? What is the point? What's the purpose of reading the

00:19:53 --> 00:20:00

Quran? Listen very carefully. Because if you understand this point and in

00:20:00 --> 00:20:10

PIM en if you implemented well, from now on, with every time you open the Quran, it will change your attitude towards reading the Quran dramatically.

00:20:13 --> 00:20:14

We read the Quran

00:20:15 --> 00:20:19

so that we can find our guidance within it.

00:20:21 --> 00:21:14

Allah azza wa jal, he said at the very beginning of the Quran that he Kalki tabula rasa Buffy, who then Lily takim. This is a book in which there is no doubt in it whatsoever. What a powerful start to the Quran. Is there any book on earth you have ever opened in your life. And it began by saying this book has no doubt in it whatsoever. No one would dare to write that in his book. Because it would become a laughingstock for people, because every single book that is published and authored on Earth contains a mistake and there is doubt within it. So no one will ever dare to do something like that. And in fact, this idea was a reason for why someone accepted Islam, and documented the story

00:21:14 --> 00:22:08

of his Islam. He said, I never found a book on earth that began with such a powerful statement. Seeing that there is absolutely not an ounce or an atom's weight of doubt within it. So what's in it, who then little takim there is an abundance of guidance within a for the believer, meaning the believer is the one who is going to benefit from the guidance within the Quran. That's why we read the Quran. Because there's guidance in it. So now, we have tons of complaints from tons of people. I give you simple things. There are many feet and around the street. There's many evil, there's much corruption around us, especially in this day and age of social media. A lot of the youth complain

00:22:09 --> 00:22:46

whether they say it or not, but the reality is that anyone who has social media is exposed to a lot of filth during the day and during the night. Too much adult content out there on social media will show up on temps mankind very easily. Especially if the phone is in your hand for hours and hours. Going from reel to reel from short to short. from picture to picture, going into this profile and into that profile, pleasuring your eyes with that which you see.

00:22:48 --> 00:22:49

If you were to read the Quran,

00:22:51 --> 00:23:00

with the intention of seeking its guidance, Wallah, he and Roxanne will be less than a quarter of an acre would have solved this problem.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:23

This is an intense fitna. I need guidance. I need to come out of this trouble. I can't do this anymore. I don't want to watch this filth. I don't want to watch this garbage. It's hurting my Eman. It's hurting my mental health, my physical health, my relationship with my wife and children and so on.

00:23:24 --> 00:23:33

Open Solar to normal, a normal, the solar of light. This incredible light and abundance of guidance within it.

00:23:34 --> 00:23:36

Read Allah's message.

00:23:37 --> 00:23:40

Me they are who mean upside him? Well.

00:23:42 --> 00:23:47

They're like a scared home in Allah have you been is known,

00:23:48 --> 00:23:56

say and announced announced publicly to the believers and tell them to lower their gaze.

00:23:57 --> 00:24:06

You see, the one who reads the Quran. To seek guidance is different to the one who's going to read the Quran for 10 100 per letter.

00:24:07 --> 00:24:12

And different to the one who reads the Quran because it's Ramadan and we have to read the Quran

00:24:14 --> 00:24:20

and different to the one who says I read the Quran because my cousin died last week and I'm scared so I need to read the Quran.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:26

The one who's reading the Quran two sources guidance stop

00:24:28 --> 00:24:39

me Nina who boom in Uppsala him Allahu Akbar. This is a message from Allah. This is giving me guidance. This is the solution to my problem.

00:24:40 --> 00:24:41

Loyal gaze

00:24:42 --> 00:24:58

so that now when you are in seclusion, alone, you yourself and your phone and you're tempted to do something haram you see to yourself mean email boo mean of Salim

00:24:59 --> 00:24:59

tell

00:25:00 --> 00:25:05

The believers to law have a GIS. At the moment now, between you and Allah, what are you going to do?

00:25:06 --> 00:25:08

You find yourself you struggle.

00:25:09 --> 00:25:15

You say, I'm going to implement Allah's advice for this very moment, at least this is guidance.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:20

This is guidance. So you say, I'm going to turn it off.

00:25:22 --> 00:25:33

I'm going to turn it off. Because I prefer what Allah has said over what my body is calling me to. My Lord has said, loyal gaze.

00:25:35 --> 00:26:08

That's guidance, that's your solution. Will Love is nothing else. This is the solution. How many programs 1000s and 1000s of dollars are spent on programs, how to defeat * in your life, how to overcome this desire and that desire, the need always, the believer doesn't need to always, the believer needs a quarter of an acre. And for him to take it seriously, and to seek the guidance from that area.

00:26:09 --> 00:26:19

We need your Hoopoe when I'm sorry him, try it forms. Keep reading. Read it again. And keep reading it and ponder

00:26:20 --> 00:26:22

more and more.

00:26:24 --> 00:27:13

And keep reading 10 times 20 times 100 times until it grows in your heart until it calls you to action until it crushes your desire and crushes your temptation. And the Quran will do this because this is the word of Allah by Allah has permission it will do this. While I have only masked me leg shade, as it Nabi SallAllahu, I think he will sell themselves. When the name of Allah is weed with anything else, the name of Allah azza wa jal will outweigh anything else. If it was your desire, your temptation is a struggle in life, whatever it is, once you have on the other side of the scale, the name of Allah, the word of Allah, I think cannot wait to it, nothing can outweigh it. Very soon

00:27:13 --> 00:27:35

you'll find yourself having power and strength and ability by Allah's permission to overcome this desire of yours. And that was just a few words in the Quran, wife of oferuje home Valley because gala home in the LA hub urine females now, you know, there is a recent study that came out from the UK

00:27:36 --> 00:28:06

that tried to bring to the people's attention what to do, especially for young children, and how to train them and teach them if they were ever to be exposed to adult content on the internet. When Allah He a UK research, you know, the very first thing it said, the very first point on this research, and this is scientists and research in hours and hours and hours, they know what they're doing.

00:28:08 --> 00:28:13

The first point, teach the children to look away.

00:28:15 --> 00:28:30

That's research that's already in the word of Allah azza wa jal, and 1400 years ago, look away. And the second thing is go talk to an adult, and go talk to a parent of yours in terms of what you just got exposed to online.

00:28:32 --> 00:28:40

And then there are many other things that are mentioned. But the idea is we already have this guidance. People are paying 1000s of dollars for this.

00:28:41 --> 00:28:59

It's already here, but our reciting tion of the Quran is wrong. We're not reciting the Quran, with the intention of sourcing and seeking our guidance. Because if that was the case, it would renovate your life.

00:29:00 --> 00:29:02

It would completely change your life.

00:29:03 --> 00:29:21

At the end of that I Allah azza wa jal says in Allah hubiera beam is now own. Allah is well aware of that which they do. Meaning the greatest weapon against desires is to always be aware of the fact that Allah is watching

00:29:23 --> 00:29:32

that Allah azza wa jal is watching. There is nothing greater than this. And that's how the eye began. And that's how the I have concluded his guidance

00:29:33 --> 00:29:34

today,

00:29:35 --> 00:29:37

in this day and age that we live in,

00:29:38 --> 00:29:53

in this financial crisis, that the entire world is going through. People become tempted to go into the bank and take a loan and interest based loan to buy a house.

00:29:55 --> 00:29:59

The pressure is on it's really difficult and

00:30:00 --> 00:30:09

It looks like I'll never be able to afford buying a house in Holland. So, Morris will go and do what everyone else is doing.

00:30:10 --> 00:30:20

Another one who has a relationship with the Quran? Just a few words. Why hello ma who will be here? We'll have one Merida.

00:30:21 --> 00:30:25

Allah azza wa jal permitted lawful transactions

00:30:26 --> 00:30:28

what have Rama V bear

00:30:29 --> 00:30:34

and He prohibited a Riba. He prohibited interest.

00:30:35 --> 00:30:39

We desire, read it again and again.

00:30:40 --> 00:30:42

And take your guidance from it.

00:30:43 --> 00:30:48

Begin to discuss the matter with yourself. Allah has forbidden a river

00:30:50 --> 00:30:55

how foolish it is of me to go and exercise this object.

00:30:56 --> 00:31:12

Allah, my Lord, the Creator, the provider, the Sustainer the one who gives me life causes my death decrees all my affairs and matters. Every blessing I have is from him or my becoming damnit informing Allah.

00:31:13 --> 00:31:18

I now going to go and we do war against Allah so I can't

00:31:19 --> 00:31:43

I can't do that. The one who reads the Quran to see guidance will think twice will think three and four and five times before he steps foot in Valhalla. I'm the one who reads Quran for other than that he's disconnected anyway. So you might as well find him you won't find him perhaps lining up to sign that interest baseload.

00:31:45 --> 00:31:49

I want to share with you a moment so that he can think of the situation renew Old

00:31:51 --> 00:32:39

Adam Alayhis Salam lived in the Paradise for many years from when Allah azza wa jal created the paradise. That's the very same paradise that you and I continue to say Allahumma hidden agenda is the dream of all of us. That's our purpose. We want to end up there. So everything we're doing is so that we can enter the paradise and we're making this dua you know, shoot, we're making Mr. On the day of alpha. We're making this to our in every occasion in where the DA is accepted. Adam was already there. He was already there. So anyway, Adam, Allah you set up disobeyed his Lord, ate from the tree. Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed that he knows needs to be removed from the paradise. So

00:32:39 --> 00:32:42

Allah azza wa jal said Pune, Bilbo Minaj. Me.

00:32:43 --> 00:33:00

We said to Adam, and her work and bliss, descend from the paradise all of you. How depressing and gloomy and dark this moment was, he's coming down to an earth that is known as the root chakra, it will be

00:33:02 --> 00:33:04

a life of calamity and misery.

00:33:05 --> 00:33:08

A life of pain and suffering.

00:33:09 --> 00:33:11

A life of toiling libre.

00:33:12 --> 00:33:24

Allah if in which diseases began, old age began, sickness began, Deaf began. He's coming down to this down Chicago.

00:33:26 --> 00:33:27

Can you understand?

00:33:28 --> 00:33:49

What kind of depression there is involved in this? You're coming out from absolute perfection, and you're coming to a life of misery. Now you have to work or family he said I was the first one to work and provide for his family, then the sickness is the deal with then you need to eat and keep eating to remain alive.

00:33:51 --> 00:33:52

Law social says

00:33:55 --> 00:33:56

what's the way out?

00:33:57 --> 00:34:07

And we're in this life of oppression and injustice, and sins and rebellion and corruption. Looks like it's all dark.

00:34:08 --> 00:34:14

Allah azza wa jal, you said that you may T and Minnie Huda.

00:34:15 --> 00:34:36

If any one of you receives any guidance from me, Allahu Akbar, the ayat of the Quran, are the shining light in this huge darkness that we're living in. How can you afford to abandon this light and run away from it?

00:34:37 --> 00:34:47

When people are in the dark, when people are in the desert, and it's complete darkness at the sea, a little flame everyone runs to it.

00:34:48 --> 00:34:59

That's the Quran in the life that we're living in. That's the attitude we're supposed to have. Run to a tee and Nico mini Huda. Listen. Any guidance that comes to

00:35:00 --> 00:35:00

You

00:35:01 --> 00:35:24

for many Tebah who die. Anyone who follows My Guidance Laquan congratulations, fell ill when he will never be led astray. He will never be misguided. Isn't that what we want? Isn't this what we want in this dark day and age we're living.

00:35:25 --> 00:35:40

Each and every single one of us every day are asking, How do I remain guided? How do I remain steadfast? How do I remain on the path? How do I die upon Leila Hale Allah here? He's the answer. For many who who die for

00:35:42 --> 00:35:51

anyone who follows My Guidance will never be misled. When I ask God, and He will never be miserable.

00:35:52 --> 00:36:02

Rather, he will be happy. He'll be successful. He will actually experience joy and tranquility and peace like no one else.

00:36:03 --> 00:36:06

This doesn't mean that he will not be tested.

00:36:08 --> 00:36:22

He will be tested. He will go through sickness, he will lose money, he will lose a business no problems. But he will know how to deal with these calamities by the guidance of Allah azza wa jal.

00:36:24 --> 00:36:29

He'll know how to deal with it. He will lose his Deen he won't lose his sanity.

00:36:30 --> 00:36:32

Fella will no wonder Escar

00:36:35 --> 00:36:41

Wilma here I do do. I don't know how people survive a calamity.

00:36:43 --> 00:36:53

If they do not seek the guidance from the Quran, and from the stories of profits, I don't know. How do people do it? Wallahi I don't know.

00:36:54 --> 00:36:57

When a person is in an intense calamity.

00:36:58 --> 00:37:07

You need to open up the Quran and read the stories of prophets read it with the intention of seeking guidance from it.

00:37:08 --> 00:37:09

A person is in a calamity.

00:37:10 --> 00:37:14

He opens the Quran to Saul Ambia

00:37:15 --> 00:37:24

and reads the story of the known alayhi salam you know Salah his salah, large socially says about him with a known if the hubba Mahal

00:37:26 --> 00:37:35

for Wunderland, Nakamura, Li Fernanda, for photo mat, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah in the Quran to mean of volume in

00:37:37 --> 00:37:50

a person that is going through a calamity. How can he survive? If he doesn't find his guidance within the story in this ayah Allah azza wa jal he tells us about Yulu Salah he's Salam.

00:37:52 --> 00:38:18

And he ended up in the belly of a whale. This is an intense calamity. He is in three darknesses the darkness of the belly of the whale, the darkness of the depths of the ocean, the darkness of the night. Even today's technology will not be able to bring him out. Even if he called out to people, no one will have the means to bring him out. He has no food to communicate with the outside world in terms of where he is.

00:38:19 --> 00:38:24

And the first thing he says La ilaha illa there is no Lord except you.

00:38:25 --> 00:38:32

He is busy with the remembrance of Allah more than he is concerned with his calamity.

00:38:33 --> 00:38:37

And so as opposed to who goes through a calamity, and you read this,

00:38:38 --> 00:38:41

it teaches you how to deal with your calamity.

00:38:43 --> 00:38:48

Focus on Victrola focus on La ilaha illa.

00:38:50 --> 00:39:00

And don't put too much energy focusing on the calamity itself. Because the more you think of the calamity, the bigger it grows, and it'll destroy you and shatter you.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:33

But start shifting your focus on Tola with the Corolla, which is exactly what your salary is Sam is doing. And he doesn't say La ilaha illAllah. He says La ilaha illa. And there is no load except you. You know the word and it's a pronoun that you use when you're referring to someone that is close to meaning he recognizes and fuels the closeness of Allah. So again, for in Nikoli Allah social says he knows Allah is close.

00:39:35 --> 00:39:45

The one who is attached to the guidance of the Quran moves the reality of the fact that Allah on social is close to him and hasn't abandoned him. So

00:39:47 --> 00:39:49

then he says Subhanak

00:39:51 --> 00:39:56

he declares the perfection of Allah. Praise belongs to perfection belongs to

00:39:57 --> 00:39:59

as though he is

00:40:00 --> 00:40:06

Putting all negative thought about Allah from his heart, that Allah Who perfect

00:40:07 --> 00:40:22

me in the belly of the whale is not your injustice upon me. It's not oppression upon me. Subhanak you don't oppress anyone, you don't harm anyone. You're not in just anyone.

00:40:23 --> 00:40:50

He cuts out the negative thoughts, the one who's reading the story in the Quran, seeking its guidance, will know how to deal with this calamity. Don't have evil and bad thought of Allah in your calamity. The moment you get into a calamity or a calamity strikes you see Subhanak so it can cut every negative thought of Allah from your heart.

00:40:51 --> 00:41:05

And then you will decide that he's Salam takes it a step further, in me consuming a volley mean, I am the wrongdoer. I am the one that has shortcomings. I am the one who wronged myself.

00:41:06 --> 00:41:09

I'm in this calamity, because of what I did.

00:41:12 --> 00:41:21

See, see when you read the Quran, with the lens of guidance? How much guidance would it give you in your life?

00:41:22 --> 00:41:31

No book on earth will do this. Today, when someone suffers a calamity of some sort, no matter how big it is.

00:41:32 --> 00:41:47

The western world teaches you to rush to the psychologist to a mental health assessment, get diagnosed, get some therapy, if the therapy is not working, move on to a psychiatrist, get some pills into

00:41:48 --> 00:42:02

the Western teachers. When I landed into Sydney and I came out from the airport, there was a massive billboard. And it had the word stressed. And a question mark? What was the answer? There was a bottle and it said men's multivitamin.

00:42:03 --> 00:42:15

That's the solution. I walked into an office, it said stressed and underneath it, it had a solution with a small circle. And he said bang your head here.

00:42:17 --> 00:42:18

That's the solution.

00:42:20 --> 00:42:30

There is nothing on earth that will be able to guide you out of your calamity. Besides the Quran, only if it's

00:42:31 --> 00:42:45

with the lens of guidance, seeking the guidance from it, hey, don't rush. Don't rush. The Quran was revealed on to the best of creation over 23 years.

00:42:46 --> 00:42:50

So if you were able to read it in 23 years, you're doing good.

00:42:52 --> 00:42:54

Slowly, easy.

00:42:55 --> 00:43:07

Read the IRA once and twice and 10 times. Keep reading until you find the relationship between you and desire. Keep reading until you see what I can do from this area.

00:43:10 --> 00:43:16

If you read Rahim, and continue to repeat it until your heart softened.

00:43:18 --> 00:43:20

And you began to think of Allah's mercy.

00:43:21 --> 00:43:41

And he pushed you towards seeing Oh Allah, I asked You through Your mercy, that you relieve me from my pain and in between the paradise. You are now in a solid relationship with the Quran. This is exactly what's required. You have just read with seeking guidance.

00:43:43 --> 00:43:52

That's how we read the Quran. In any matter in life, you will find your guidance within this Quran. That's why we read it

00:43:53 --> 00:43:55

to seek our guidance.

00:43:56 --> 00:43:59

I will also read the Quran. Perhaps I will end with this.

00:44:01 --> 00:44:03

To remind ourselves

00:44:04 --> 00:44:05

to remind

00:44:06 --> 00:44:13

the human beam forgets my nature. That's why he was called an inset. You can't even remember what you ate yesterday.

00:44:14 --> 00:44:30

And if you said yes, I do. What did you eat last week? He can't remember. What did you dress up with? A month ago? You can't remember now at all. The human being forgets he is in need of a reminder.

00:44:31 --> 00:44:41

We only gathered here to remind ourselves. Yes, maybe there are things I mentioned in the talk that you know, here will no problems. The reminder is necessary.

00:44:43 --> 00:44:59

That's not my own analysis. That's what Allah said. Well, the good thing the vicarage and found what we need. Remind for verily the remind that benefits the believers, when I remind that means you already know

00:45:00 --> 00:45:04

When I remind you of something that means you already know what

00:45:05 --> 00:45:10

the idea is, yes, you can go and scream and say I know the Quran, I know the message. I know everything.

00:45:13 --> 00:45:19

Your Creator, Allah is saying to, it's going to benefit you. If you remember, I told you something.

00:45:20 --> 00:45:21

Today,

00:45:22 --> 00:45:28

the big, the big companies, tech companies, like Apple,

00:45:29 --> 00:45:34

Apple are very famous. The majority have Apple

00:45:35 --> 00:45:51

phones, iPhones in their pocket, right? This is not a debate between Apple and Samsung, whatever it is, but I'm just giving you an example. We all have Apple, it's always with you. You always see it. You don't forget it. Awesome. If you forgot it at home,

00:45:53 --> 00:46:43

you will immediately remember at the DOJ, you walk back in and you'll get it. That's our attitude. Yet. This company Apple finds the incredible need and the desperate need to pay millions and millions and millions of dollars to advertise their product around the world every single month, with massive billboards with just a picture of a phone and down the bottom new design are coming soon. Millions of dollars are spent to put this in front of you and I question why? Who's gonna figure out who's gonna forget? It's a talk of everyone. It's in everyone's pocket book. It's closer to you than your children and your wife and everything else. Why they need you see if they

00:46:44 --> 00:47:15

have come to the realization that we are in desperate need of spending this money to put it into your face. So that you're always reminded and don't forget, but I'm not going to forget the law. It's good. There is benefit in it put it up. Imagine how much more we need of reading the Quran to remember what Allah azza wa jal has told us, Allah He my brothers and sisters in Islam, we know that there is a Hellfire that exists, but the one who read a ad that describe the Hellfire today

00:47:16 --> 00:47:19

and read it with the lens of guidance and seeking a reminder,

00:47:21 --> 00:47:32

he will do a lot better in keeping away from a sin. Then a person who hasn't read a description of the Hellfire. And the last time he has read that was two months ago.

00:47:33 --> 00:47:36

The one who read a description of the Hellfire today

00:47:38 --> 00:47:46

would be able to keep away from a sin better than a person who hasn't read the description of the Hellfire only two months ago.

00:47:47 --> 00:48:34

That's what the reminder does. The one who read today Nihil filming Colin Elana do not keep on RT. Allah says in surah off any single word he utters, the angels are there and they are writing the one who read this idea today. And we all know this, but he reminded himself of this fact today will be a lot more careful when speaking. And when commenting, especially nowadays. Today, it's known as a comment culture. People read the comments only five seconds after they have watched something of the video camera interested in comments more than the video itself. So how am I going to put my five cents in there? The one who read

00:48:35 --> 00:48:46

the reality of the fact that the angels are writing everything that you see in auto and write as well, because that's considered speech will be a lot more careful

00:48:48 --> 00:48:51

than someone who has forgotten this reality.

00:48:53 --> 00:49:30

That's why we read the Quran to remind ourselves, this is very important. This is why these are the two greatest matters and from the greatest intentions for why a person is supposed to read the Quran. We read it so we can seek our guidance. We read it so we can remind ourselves of what Allah azza wa jal has told us. Only then you will begin to experience a sweetness with the Quran. Only then you will realize that I actually have a relationship with this.

00:49:31 --> 00:49:50

It's not just the book that I read and I put on the shelf. This book is actually living with me. When I shuffled the Allahu Anhu was asked about the visa Allahu alayhi wa salam she said Can I hold old Quran can of Quran and Yoshi. His character was the Quran. He was a Quran walking,

00:49:51 --> 00:49:55

meaning the Quran was alive in his heart every second and every moment.

00:49:56 --> 00:49:59

I'm not saying to be of Quran like this be awesome.

00:50:00 --> 00:50:05

All of that is walking my brother, DNA that is working one hour walking.

00:50:06 --> 00:50:23

wake up every morning, open the Quran, read five, eight, just try that you have no problems to add, but read them correctly. Read them for seeking guidance and as a reminder for you

00:50:24 --> 00:50:41

and then walk out of your house and the entire purpose of your day as you travel around and meet people and go from place to place is for this to be the new rules and the path and the light for your day and for that night.

00:50:42 --> 00:51:15

In the beast Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says a levy Lisa for your convenience a middle man can Batum hurry. The one who doesn't have anything of the Quran in his heart is like a destroyed doomed haunted house. She's not no good in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says are spoiled nurse Malisa fishy Calbee OMA Lisa fijo V shaped Amina Quran, us follow NAS, the people that are of zero value, zero wealth in the sight of Allah are those who have nothing of the Quran in their heart.

00:51:16 --> 00:51:17

Imagine

00:51:18 --> 00:51:24

someone catches you tomorrow morning says to your brother, what's living of the Quran in your heart this very second?

00:51:26 --> 00:51:27

If you can't answer

00:51:28 --> 00:51:31

this, I think there's nothing of the Quran in your heart.

00:51:32 --> 00:51:34

That's a calamity. That's a disaster.

00:51:35 --> 00:51:38

But if I was to catch you off guard, brother,

00:51:39 --> 00:51:46

what is living of the Quran in your heart? You say now, today I read who Allahu

00:51:48 --> 00:52:02

Allah, He says, he's one and I'm going to put him one throughout the day in the night. I'm going to prioritize him. So all the obligations are going to come first and then everything is second. I'm living with an heir. Allahu Akbar, the heart is alive.

00:52:04 --> 00:52:19

That's someone that read the Quran and he's seeking its guidance through his day and through his night. That's how we read the Quran. That's the kind of relationship we are supposed to have with the Quran. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam.

00:52:20 --> 00:52:24

We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala at the end of this lecture,

00:52:25 --> 00:53:10

that He grant us goodness, he bestow his mercy and his fever and his gentleness and kindness and compassion upon us all. We ask him Subhanahu wa Taala to accept our gathering. We ask him SubhanaHu wata Allah to forgive our sins and our shortcomings. We ask him subhanho wa Taala that he admitted into the highest levels of the paradise man OBE No, so the tea no shahada, it was solid Hey, no Hassan, let it go for you call and ask Allah azza wa jal to grant us a hustler in this life, and a hustler in the afterlife, and that he save us from the fire of *. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to save us from His anger, his punishment and his curse. And we asked him subhanho wa Taala to keep

00:53:10 --> 00:53:46

us steadfast upon Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, we ask Allah azza wa jal to protect us to protect our family and our children in the holy valley called call the rally. And just before I conclude, I direct your attention to a really good book that you can read, that will give you a great understanding of the seed and understanding of the ayat. Because obviously, what we said is the theory side, and the practical side is for you to go and purchase a book called The co2 Saudi. The seed, a Saudi

00:53:47 --> 00:54:36

is a book of tafseer that was written by an imam in Saudi Mohamed salah, he is the teacher of a chef of an Athenian or hammer hula. He wrote it in Arabic, well, Hamdulillah, a couple of years ago, some brothers got together and they translated it. And it's now translated in 10. volumes, excellent of seed, very easy to read, very simple to understand. He actually wrote it, while keeping in mind, the general Muslim. So you buy a copy. So that you read your Quran in the morning, as I said to you two to three is that you understand them from that seed. You sit with yourself and you discuss the ayat. And how is this going to be of great guidance for you during the day and Bismillah of Hugo and Allah

00:54:36 --> 00:54:58

Allah so it shouldn't be if Allah blesses God Kitab ins Allahu alayka mobile accordion Quran is full of Baraka. So you do that? And I think also there is a PDF copy that you will find online and do that as a family because the family that encourages one another upon the recitation of the Quran in the worship is a family. That is Mila.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:12

Yanni maintains its righteousness we ask Allah azza wa jal to grant us all goodness Allahu Allah or some Allahu wa Salam o Baraka ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Adjumani
