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

as follows My dear respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi overlocker.

00:00:59 --> 00:01:27

What is a great blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala that we are gathered here this evening. In one of the most beloved places to Allah has origin and that is a masjid. So ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept our gathering, and to forgive our sins and our shortcomings. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, this evening's lecture is titled, The reminder, a declaw.

00:01:30 --> 00:01:37

With the Quran of course, this is the word that Allah azza wa jal chose to describe the Quran.

00:01:38 --> 00:01:58

So inshallah Allah, this evening's lecture is going to be about the greatest revelation that Allah azza wa jal revealed to mankind. And, and what attitude and what relationship is the believer supposed to have with the word of Allah subhanho wa taala. But at the beginning, I want to share with you a narration

00:01:59 --> 00:02:52

of an abbess of the Allahu Anhu and then above, so the Allahu Anhu he narrates, and he says that in the VSAM Allahu alayhi wa sallam he once said to Gibreel what have you seen so Haitian Buhari, he said to him mana aka Anta Zorana uxarmy matters who will run in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam says to Jibreel alayhi salam, what prevents you from visiting us more than you already visit us? You see the love of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his attachment to the Quran. Because you believe it only comes down with the word of Allah azza wa jal, and she really is coming regularly. He's coming down almost every second day, every third day, once a week or whatever it is, he's

00:02:52 --> 00:03:41

coming down regularly with the word of Allah azza wa jal, and yet even then, and maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam would say to Gibreel what's holding you? What's holding you back? What is preventing you from visiting us more than you already? Visit me? Come on, come with some more Quran. Make these visits often, make them daily, make them hourly. So Djibouti and Allah is Salam. He says, and this is what Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran. Woman at 10 Zero 11 amblyopic. Level Boehner ad now Omar Fanfan a woman they know their Lika when they can on a book and a seer. In response to Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is invitation Allah azza wa jal would reveal in Surah Maryam, the

00:03:41 --> 00:04:28

Gibreel would then Satan there is some Allahu alayhi wa sallam on mana Tennyson Ellerbee. amrop big. We'd love to come and visit you, but means you breathe in Salah menos all the angels we only come down by the permission of Allah subhanho wa taala. So the idea of this hadith, each teaching you and I, what type of love and what type of eagerness the believer is supposed to have in terms of his relationship with the Quran. When Allah subhanahu wa taala described the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before a vicar came down before the Quran came down. He described him with one word and that is in surah to Baja Allah azza wa jal he said what was the Cabal Lem? That's the state of Nabi

00:04:28 --> 00:04:53

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before the revelation of the Quran, which is the Kabbalah ball and meaning he's seeking. He's seeking he's finding he's looking for something. He doesn't have the answers to life. He doesn't know the purpose yet. He's looking for something born learn. Like someone has lost a camel and the camel is his only ride and only mode of transport.

00:04:54 --> 00:04:59

He's lost. And you know Allah's person you can tell immediately

00:05:00 --> 00:05:14

See him and recognize him. He's looking for something. You immediately say, are you looking for something? Have you lost anything? That's how Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is described before the Quran came down. What was your the Cabal learn?

00:05:15 --> 00:05:18

And all of a sudden for her that he got he did?

00:05:19 --> 00:05:32

How did the transition happen? How did he go from a state of ballin, to whether having guidance, having purpose in life, having meaning in life, walking on a street path?

00:05:33 --> 00:06:27

How did this happen? How can it happen? Through the wire? Through the revolution, the Quran came down. And it shifted his life, from a state of Bonn to a state of hada Allahu Akbar. And so this is, this is the solution for mankind and solution for all problems. Today, how much blame is on earth? How much misguidance is on earth? Right? How much the office full with his guidance misguidance in belief, right, with all the isms that are out there and being promoted and pushed, whether it's in society out and about or in the universities on school grounds, whether it's online or in the cafes, on podcasts, whatever it is. Everyone wants to run his mouth and his tongue speaking about Allah,

00:06:27 --> 00:06:33

let's debate Allah let's debate Allah, Does he exist? Because he does not exist? Well, this is

00:06:34 --> 00:06:48

this is misguidance the prophets would come to the people and say to them, if he let you check the two people there's something wrong here. Allah He shook. Is this topic even up for debate? Is there a doubt in Allah?

00:06:49 --> 00:07:28

I feel you learn you should confirm the similarity of Allah. While he's the one who regenerated and created the heavens in the earth. If you just look at the heaven in the earth, that's enough. That's enough for you to know that Allah azza wa jal exists since he's the creator of all of this, right? This is the state of our people today ballin lost, misguided, through doubts, through desires through temptations through Alfetta what's the solution for mankind? It's the same followed Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, it's the same thing, nothing changes. Further if I had a bill.

00:07:29 --> 00:07:34

He guided you through the Quran, through the word of Allah subhanho, wa taala.

00:07:35 --> 00:07:38

And Quran my brothers and my sisters in Islam,

00:07:39 --> 00:08:16

Yanni insalata, ramen, you all know sort of deployment, the area that is repeated often insalata man, for the a la you're a bigger man to get the band. Which of the fevers of your Lord, do you deny? So Salata Man is speaking about Allah, Allah is speaking about the fetus of Allah, the gifts of Allah, that's really speaking about what is the first gift and the first fever and the first blessing that Allah azza wa jal will mention in the Quran. What is it? That you will mention in Psalter? Why man, you know what it is?

00:08:18 --> 00:08:37

I lemon Quran. It's the first Allah. That's the first blessing. That is the first Nirma that was made mention of in Surah, Allah Allah and he used his name, man first, then Allah man Quran, the Most Merciful. He taught the Quran

00:08:39 --> 00:08:43

he didn't use any other name, he could have said and your birth, unlimited Quran

00:08:45 --> 00:08:51

could use algebra. And as he is and Hakeem and lemon Quran are

00:08:53 --> 00:09:20

teaching you and I, that it is from the Mercy of Allah azza wa jal that he taught mankind and Quran. Indeed it is mercy. This is Allah's mercy upon mankind, that he gave the medicine he gave him a treatment to all the ailments and all their sicknesses, whether they are physical sicknesses or spiritual diseases of the heart. That's from his mercy.

00:09:21 --> 00:09:59

The spiritual pharmacy was sent down way before mankind was created. Because this is what Allah azza wa jal had decreed in a lo and behold, one was already written way before we were all created out of 111 Quran. Then he said halacha instead, he created the human being. But what came first, the creation of mankind or Allah teaching us and revealing the Quran to mankind, no doubt, no doubt. Allah created the human beings first. Then the Quran was revealed later on, upon in the V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:00 --> 00:10:51

But that's not the order in Missoula. The order in itself teaches you something profound. And that is that a lemon Quran was the purpose of life and all animals the purpose of life. That is the goal. After the goal was set up, and it was established, then Allah created an inside to fulfill that he was created for. So the one who is abiding by the Quran, holding on to the Quran and its message and its meaning adopting it in his life is someone that is living his purpose on earth. And whoever is living his purpose on earth, finds contentment, peace and tranquility in his heart, because he is doing what he was created for. Right? This is Danny, illogical understanding, you see this

00:10:51 --> 00:11:24

microphone, it's designed for me to speak in it, then it takes my sound, and it's amplified through the speaker. If I use it for what it was created for, it will remain in perfect condition. And we can use it for many years. But if I use this for other than what it was made for, right, so let's say I took it and I used it, like the hammer the judge uses. And every time I want to do attention, I will grab this and I will slam it onto the table.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:33

Give it a few weeks, a few months, it's ruined, it's destroyed, the cannot be used. When you use something for other than its purpose, you damage it.

00:11:34 --> 00:11:55

When you use something for its purpose, it will last long and it will give you the best of it. So the human being was created to fulfill the Quran. So when you fulfill the Quran in your life, you will live an optimal life you will get the best out of your life because you're living your purpose.

00:11:56 --> 00:12:12

How many books are there today? And how many courses are there today? Sold in their 1000s attended the seminar, attend the seminar and listen weekend courses whatever it is, get the getting the best out of your life. And people line up

00:12:14 --> 00:12:38

what do you love? What do you love? You sit in front of a human being that thinks that thinks based on his experience in life many has experienced this 3040s I've got it I've got the solution. How to live a better life and people are lining up and they're paying to hear him talk how can I better my life from his speech and the Quran

00:12:39 --> 00:12:44

and Quran has fallen off on later on when Ramadan comes we'll see what we can pick out of it.

00:12:46 --> 00:12:58

With Quran is for free. We're not who either lady been in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam was never stingy, never held back information and knowledge he gave it and it's the most authentic and truthful knowledge.

00:12:59 --> 00:13:00

See, the ID

00:13:01 --> 00:13:24

isn't old man I live on Earth. And when you live your life and you are not embracing your purpose, then you will damage yourself. Just like if I use this for other than what it was made for. It gets damaged. Now look at the people that leaves allies away from the Quran. How damaged are they? How damaged

00:13:25 --> 00:13:51

in their spiritual health, in their physical health, in their mental health, in their financial dealings? Because if you're not upholding the Quran, then you will do all sorts of haram transactions, you will get yourself involved in a haram mortgage and riba based loan and what has that done to people's mental health these days. How many have committed suicide

00:13:52 --> 00:13:56

because of a liver and a mortgage that he got stuck with he cannot pay

00:13:57 --> 00:14:45

whoever was committed on the Quran, he'll know that this is not healthy for mankind, he'll keep away from it. His mental health and his well being will be in top shape because he's living his purpose. So the farther away the further away you are from your purpose, the more miserable a person becomes. And that's why the word of Allah azza wa jal woman out Oba and victory for indena who might Schatten banca whoever moves away from my lickin from my remembrance the Quran remind you of Allah and your purpose? Then Allah azza wa jal promises such a person level to him is a nice shutdown OneCare a miserable life full of trouble

00:14:47 --> 00:14:59

and he won't find contentment in this trouble. Yes, the believer might go through trouble and difficulty, but at least the one who's living with the Quran will find peace and tranquility through the calamities and through the troubles.

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

He won't suffer from them. But the one who is away from the Quran, he will live a troublesome life, a life of misery, and he will feel every sting of it and every moment of pain, and there's nothing to guide him in terms of how to feel, and how to be content during these moments.

00:15:20 --> 00:15:36

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we read full autograph every Friday. The first Aya in salted GIF, and hamdulillah Olivia and Zilla Allah Abdullahi kita wala mujer Allah whenever you see how salted gas began.

00:15:38 --> 00:15:39

So Tilka

00:15:40 --> 00:16:01

is the solar that protects from a Dogen right, as individual Allahu alayhi wa sallam says, if the gel appears before you, you didn't go to him but he just appeared before you funnier corollary he gets read upon him the opening act of Solotica first step out, and that will protect you from him.

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

Do you know what that means?

00:16:06 --> 00:16:22

If 10 A out of salt water gas can protect you from the greatest fitna on earth, then surely it can protect you from every fitna on Earth, because every fitna is less in its intensity than fifth edition.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:38

And the first 10 I add the first eight What is it speaking about Alhamdulillah this is a person that is excited. This is a person that is screaming from enjoyment and happiness and excitement and delight.

00:16:39 --> 00:16:42

Someone running around and see hamdulillah

00:16:44 --> 00:17:03

today, when would you scream out and hamdulillah from your heart? When you get good news? Right? Someone had a pay rise, your wife gave birth, you finally got married. You graduated from school, you memorize the Quran and you finished it. These are, these are blessings Alhamdulillah finally,

00:17:05 --> 00:17:24

this is the attitude of the beginning of the soul. Someone screaming out of happiness to what's what what's the blessing that he's celebrating here? Allah the unzila Allah abdiel kita Alhamdulillah for the fact that Allah azza wa jal has revealed the book unto his slave.

00:17:25 --> 00:17:37

We we're celebrating now but Allah, which is the Quran that was revealed on to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That's the attitude when you read for a telco from the very beginning.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:52

This is like someone that is lost in the desert, and had no clue no way how to come out there was about to die. And all of a sudden, he found a roadmap that leads him out of the desert. You hold on to it Alhamdulillah

00:17:54 --> 00:18:04

Almighty person that is in the depths of the ocean, he looks left and right of him. Behind him in front of him this only ocean and water there is no light.

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

He's about to drown. He's about to dark. He's panicking, he's struggling. And all of a sudden a helicopter comes and deploys a life boy, and he holds on tightly and Hamdulillah.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:21

This is the situation of us on this earth.

00:18:23 --> 00:18:27

We're in darkness, surrounded by waves and storms

00:18:28 --> 00:18:32

of doubts and desires and temptations.

00:18:33 --> 00:18:35

And we're about to suffer. We're about to drown.

00:18:37 --> 00:18:41

And Allah subhanho wa Taala sends a rope on turf.

00:18:43 --> 00:18:45

Al Quran has been described as a rope.

00:18:46 --> 00:18:54

Watusi will be humbler. And Quran is hub Lulu Hill Mateen the strong rope of Allah azza wa jal

00:18:56 --> 00:19:30

one end of the rope is with us and the other is with Allah azza wa jal. So we're in this darkness on Earth, the storms of freedom and desire and waves of desire around us about to crush us and destroy us. This was revealed like a rope like that life boy, you hold on to it. And this is how you're going to be saved and out of all these storms and these pressures. So this is the attitude of the beginning of swallowtail calf Alhamdulillah, Olivia and Salah and Abdullah Al Kitab.

00:19:32 --> 00:19:44

What a mutual love and where he was. And he never made for this, any crookedness. The Quran is not crooked. It's not deviated. Rather it is a human

00:19:45 --> 00:19:55

extreme. It is upright. It calls to the best of morals and values and ethics and character and dealings and everything.

00:19:56 --> 00:19:59

You know, that means the closer you are to the Quran

00:20:00 --> 00:20:08

The more strict your life becomes. The further away you are from the Quran, the more crooked and bent you become.

00:20:09 --> 00:20:10

This is how it is

00:20:16 --> 00:20:22

so the relationship with the Quran, my brothers and my sisters in Islam has to be strong

00:20:24 --> 00:20:30

and salted gas. The last passage in school was in Calif Allah mentioned Alfa dos.

00:20:31 --> 00:21:00

In Alladhina amanu Samuel Sonya had the surgery Luna home again at home Jannatul for dosi Missoula and for those who certainly mentioned twice in the Quran, this was one of them. But can you do the link between the beginning of the surah and the end of the surah the connection is simple. For one who upholds or add in his life, it would lead him to not fulfill those. And Quran is enough to take you to the highest levels in the paradise you don't need more than that.

00:21:04 --> 00:21:05

My brothers and my sisters in Islam

00:21:07 --> 00:21:09

what is our relationship with the Quran?

00:21:11 --> 00:22:00

We all knew the honor of the Quran and the virtue of the Quran and the importance of the Quran. We all know this. So recently in one of the European countries, someone bought the Quran and the entire Muslim world is angry, right and rightfully so this is our book. We don't allow anyone to harm the book, or disrespect the book or dishonor the book. Okay, that's one thing. But really, really, what is our relationship with this book? What kind of connection do we have? Well Allah He my brothers and sisters in Islam. It is disturbing to know that the greatest complaint of Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Day of Judgment is the relationship his own Mahat with the Quran

00:22:02 --> 00:22:12

is written for Allah azza wa jal mentions this complaint will call on lawsuit. Yeah will be not only the hothead and Khurana Euro

00:22:15 --> 00:22:20

the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will say Allow. Yeah,

00:22:21 --> 00:22:30

he complains directly to Allah. Noticeably not an angel motif companions not anyone but to Allah. He is complaining.

00:22:32 --> 00:23:04

He's complaining who which people call me, my people, my nation. These people that are my followers and the people I was sent to me every mankind every man and woman that existed after Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, my people, what happened? What's the complaint? It does have all the matura the abandoned display plan, they neglected this plan. The newest importance, the newest virtue,

00:23:06 --> 00:23:12

they're ready to defend the if it got burnt. But what did they actually have a relationship with it?

00:23:14 --> 00:23:28

matured, you know what magnitude means? It comes from the word genre. And genre like he's yellow. You know, some of those, uh, he showed up, he moves from one land, all the way down to the lab, far away from his desk from his origin.

00:23:29 --> 00:23:41

He's what the people did. They didn't just move away from a little travel they had done he's yellow from the Quran. It says the people who are in the besar send them is complaining about

00:23:42 --> 00:23:51

God, blah blah see doesn't have any relationship with the Quran. Other than it's just a word, a word of Allah that was revealed that's all I know about it.

00:23:53 --> 00:23:59

All he knows is that the Quran is important Ramadan and somehow we have to read something from it in Ramadan.

00:24:01 --> 00:24:13

If someone died Blitzwing we have to read Quran I don't know. That's what someone taught me. Someone got married. Let's open up and read the Fatiha and watching bus. This is relationship with the Quran. Well that's wrong.

00:24:15 --> 00:24:17

Even the ideas

00:24:18 --> 00:24:53

of Abraham Allah and you can imagine how many years ago you have no idea how many centuries ago he says at his time, people have abandoned and neglected the Quran in five ways. And he is basically teaching us that the relationship was supposed to have with the Quran in five things. And he's seen people at his time abandoned the Quran in these matters, but imagine that our time imagine now, he said they have abandoned the citation of the Hawaiian Laquan they abandoned the RE citation of the Quran.

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

And they abandoned listening to the Quran because it's also a sunnah to

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

Listen to the Quran as much as you read the Quran.

00:25:03 --> 00:25:49

When the riesel Allahu alayhi wa sallam used to select certain Sahaba and say to them read upon me the Quran read read, I want to hear it from someone else. And he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would sit down and listen to the Quran, from the tongue of others. People abandoned listening to when was the last time someone sat and had just a session between him and the Quran while being pleased. I just listening to the Word of Allah has solution. You know, there are because the thing is okay, I don't understand Arabic when I listen to you listen to the Arabic and the translation that goes with it. And there is a whole playlist on YouTube, of the Quran being played recited an ayah in Arabic

00:25:49 --> 00:25:53

and in English comes after it. People abandoned listening to the Quran.

00:25:55 --> 00:26:00

People abandoned seeking treatment through the Quran, Elise Tisha will pull out.

00:26:01 --> 00:26:33

When someone gets sick, the first thing that we do, he rushed to the doctor. We rushed the medicine, we rush to Google, to put in our symptoms and to see what's going to come up and diagnose ourselves and see what kind of medicine we need. That's good, no problems. And I'm not canceling that altogether. That's from the means that Allah azza wa jal taught mankind. But before all of this, there was a Greek medicine, it never goes wrong. And that is the Quran, Allah azza wa jal, he called the one on a zero mineral, Qurani Maha Shiva.

00:26:35 --> 00:27:23

We reveal down what is of treatment and cure to mankind. And Quran is called Shiva. Shiva means treatment. He did not call it the word, the word is medicine. What's the difference between medicine and treatment? The difference is that the word medicine sometimes works, sometimes it doesn't work, but he felt a treatment. It definitely works 100% of the times, and that's how the Quran was described. And the people have abandoned the Quran in terms of pondering and implementing its meaning. pondering over the Quran doesn't mean to just sit down and read something and think about it. The highest level of pondering over the Quran is to implement. So if you read

00:27:24 --> 00:28:03

what are the most solid means established the solid then you got up and you stood in the line and you prayed solid till Maghrib you are now pondering over the next the highest level of pondering over the Quran when you implement it. You read what to get, and it encourages you and inspires you to give a sadhaka you are now implementing an A pondering over the Quran in its highest form and level. The Hustle and bustle of Allah He said woman, the Buddha at Liberty very pondering over the Quran is nothing but implementing the

00:28:04 --> 00:28:25

right if you read a Rahmani Raheem, in saltan Fatiha and it inspired you to call out to the Mercy of Allah and beg Him for His mercy and forgiveness. You are now doing the Bureau of the Quran. If an area increased your love for Allah that's pondering over the Quran.

00:28:26 --> 00:28:42

If an area increased your fear of Allah assertion, that's the moral Quran. You understand how it works. That's the beauty of Quran people have abandoned that. When was the last time you read an AI and you interacted with the AI the very second you recited?

00:28:43 --> 00:28:47

You moved into action the very moment you recited it.

00:28:48 --> 00:29:00

This is why in the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam when he used to night, pray the night prayers. If he read an area of mercy, he would ask Allah for his mercy, as he's praying and I pray.

00:29:01 --> 00:29:03

He's implementing the Quran.

00:29:05 --> 00:29:12

And if he read an area of punishment, he would seek protection from Allah as he's praying.

00:29:14 --> 00:29:17

Right? This is the highest level of pondering over the Quran.

00:29:19 --> 00:29:40

Allah azza wa jal, he said theme evasion. Allahu Allah eternus el Hulu Nephi De La Jolla, Florida for some behandelt a bigger still filled who into who can at the webapp so then when he was in his little corner, he would say Subhanak Allahumma they have a sterile field we'll go to buoy Lake

00:29:42 --> 00:29:46

and he's a little cooler. I shall be Allah who I'm and she says he had a wonderful AD.

00:29:47 --> 00:29:59

He would say Subhanak Allahumma Behanding among fiddly. Subhanallah Colombo, the Hamrick Allahumma fiddly issue said he is interpreting the Quran. Allah said to him

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

glorifying your Lord and seek his forgiveness. So he implemented it in a solid. This is pondering over the Quran symbol.

00:30:11 --> 00:30:27

And the fifth way in how people have abandoned the Quran, the * come la to return to the Quran. And please sit as a judge in our troubles and our problems with others. And again, when was the last time

00:30:28 --> 00:30:38

a person has an issue with someone else? To business partners have a dispute? When was the last time you said Brother, listen, the opinion is not for you. Alright?

00:30:40 --> 00:31:05

Let's go to a person that is not in the Quran and Sunnah. Maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam and we don't want his opinion. But he can explain to us what is the opinion and the judgment of Allah and His Messenger in our case. And then both of us are Muslims, we will accept that people have abandoned that. You see if we all follow this, there will not remain a single problem on Earth. But we don't follow it. And if we do, we don't follow it correctly.

00:31:08 --> 00:31:15

My brothers and my sisters in Islam have no Kenya Muhammad Allah, He said people abandon the Quran in these ways.

00:31:17 --> 00:31:18

But I want to tell you something.

00:31:19 --> 00:31:21

Today, people

00:31:23 --> 00:31:55

well, you could probably be sitting here and say yes, or no, I understand what you're saying. I know the virtue of the oil. I know the importance of the Quran 100% I agree with you. No problems. But now practically, there's a problem. There is actually a complaint. And that is that okay? I'm eager. I am ready. I want to read, I want to develop this relationship. But brother, I read the Quran and then nothing happens. And tomorrow I'll read and after tomorrow I will read and then

00:31:57 --> 00:31:59

I tell you some this is a big complaint.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:11

What's the solution? We're missing something I want to share with you the solution. Allah if you listen to me very carefully, I'm going to tell you a few words.

00:32:13 --> 00:32:26

If you approach your RE citation of the Quran from now on, with this approach, I'm going to share with you one more he will change your RE citation of the Quran dramatically.

00:32:27 --> 00:32:35

One law you will read the Quran today for the very first time as though you have never read the Quran before in your life.

00:32:37 --> 00:32:47

The problem is we read the Quran you ask the Brother Why are you reading the Quran? He says 10 house and add Polina Okay, that's good. What else?

00:32:48 --> 00:32:54

It's the word of Allah. Okay, what else? What else when last, we can no clue.

00:32:55 --> 00:33:02

The correct attitude that is a life changer is to read the Quran for guidance.

00:33:05 --> 00:33:09

To have the attitude of I want to derive my guidance from Him.

00:33:11 --> 00:33:24

So that means I will read an AI and I will stop. And I will repeat it 10 times 20 times 100 times until I find my guidance within it.

00:33:25 --> 00:33:28

I'm not going to rush to read an entire page law.

00:33:29 --> 00:33:40

I want to read one idea and continue to read it until I actually find myself moving towards implementing this idea of sourcing my guidance out of this area.

00:33:42 --> 00:33:51

You know Wallahi I told you many many many Muslims have no clue that the Quran is to be recited for our guidance.

00:33:53 --> 00:34:07

Abdul Hamid Addis Ababa Hola, agreed scholar, a great scholar of Islam. He narrates his own story. He says I went to jam out zetonna in Tunis.

00:34:09 --> 00:34:22

And I studied the difficile of the Quran. They've seeded by Bowie, professional deceit, massive. He studied the entire Quran from the very beginning to the end. And he Allah He said,

00:34:23 --> 00:34:24

he said

00:34:26 --> 00:34:30

I never knew that the Quran was a book of guidance until later.

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

Why

00:34:34 --> 00:34:56

this is a life of a student if he's not careful. He gets immersed into meanings and definitions of what this means why this came before this why came after this or picking out all these things what they've seen when the idea came down when it was revealed on to who wasn't revealed What's the story behind that what's the history was still behind? So God

00:34:58 --> 00:34:59

but where's the guidance? You know, this is

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

information.

00:35:02 --> 00:35:23

So he mastered information about the Quran, yet he failed to see that the Quran was a book of guidance. He only realized this later when he started giving lectures back in his country and he saw the guidance that the Quran offers for mankind and their problems. I give you an example.

00:35:24 --> 00:35:30

You know today, many young youth mashallah I see all the people as all not only the youth

00:35:33 --> 00:35:58

they have fallen into a sea tannic devilish trap. And that is being exposed consistently to adult content online. As a problem as a huge disease in today's society, especially among the younger generation and also the older generation among men and women that doesn't differentiate between a new huge fitna huge disease especially who has a smartphone

00:35:59 --> 00:36:05

and especially if he's got social media downloaded on an accounts open

00:36:06 --> 00:36:15

it is very easy to scroll through real after real seeing and haram exposing your eyes to Al haram the is committing Zina time.

00:36:17 --> 00:36:20

Opening profiles one after the other.

00:36:21 --> 00:36:25

No one's there. Out in the streets. Now this week's have been a very hot week.

00:36:26 --> 00:36:30

Literally, this is all * and shamelessness outside that you see.

00:36:33 --> 00:36:38

And I am being troubled by this. I as a Muslim, I'm troubled by this.

00:36:41 --> 00:36:43

What's my medicine? What's the cure?

00:36:44 --> 00:37:00

Sure, similar to normal, a quarter of an A or would solve your problem forever. Allah azza wa jal he says in Salta, no millionaire who booming up sorry him say announced told the believers that they lower their gaze.

00:37:01 --> 00:37:04

And now when I have a problem,

00:37:05 --> 00:37:08

I not able to lower my gaze from an haram

00:37:10 --> 00:37:20

I need to read the Quran and that I not only for 10 100 per minute, but I want to read it for guidance here. My guidance is in here.

00:37:22 --> 00:37:25

So you read the move, meaning who boomin upside.

00:37:26 --> 00:37:29

This is the word of Allah. This is the word of my love.

00:37:30 --> 00:37:33

This is the word of Allah who created the woman.

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

And then he revealed to me the cure and the treatment.

00:37:39 --> 00:37:52

So now, I either prefer what Allah wants for me, and I lower my gaze. Or I prefer what I want for myself. And I raised my gaze

00:37:55 --> 00:37:58

and I want guidance. I want to read the Quran for guidance, he's medicine.

00:37:59 --> 00:38:01

Allah, it seemed to me

00:38:02 --> 00:38:08

lower the games. Now when I'm trapped between me and my enough's will have on.

00:38:10 --> 00:38:25

I'm reading this idea over and over again, keep repeating it until we find that groove within your neffs and you find your guidance in it and you're able to follow in the instructions of Allah. Why a hovel follows your home and tell them also to

00:38:26 --> 00:38:45

guard their privates. First Allah azza wa jal said law of the geese, that he said, safeguard the privates. Don't commit Zina with the privates, even though committing Zina with the privates, it's much worse of a sin. Then, looking.

00:38:47 --> 00:38:52

But why was looking mentioned first, because that's the gateway to this.

00:38:54 --> 00:39:07

Then he gets his girl home, that is more pure for them. Last cycle is telling you, every time you lower your gaze, you're purifying your neffs neffs is being cleaned. It's been washed.

00:39:08 --> 00:39:13

It's been polished. It's becoming white. It's becoming like a crystal.

00:39:15 --> 00:39:16

Then he has Ghana home.

00:39:18 --> 00:39:38

In Allah have your own beam is known, Allah is well aware of what they do. And that is the thing that is supposed to keep you away from looking at allow that you have the belief and I'm not understanding that Allah is looking and well aware of what you are doing. How much is in this area that offers you guidance and saves you from this path of destruction.

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

Yet, people pay 1000s And hundreds to do courses of how do I stop this addiction in my life?

00:39:51 --> 00:39:59

We'll layer solutions in one area. You know, there was a study that was done. I don't know I think in the UK or in the US. He was speaking about attending

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

Make. And that is adult content that is appearing online in front of eight 910 year old children.

00:40:09 --> 00:40:52

They see this is too much that cannot be exposed to an eight year old. There's still some, there's still some sense out there to see that it's wrong for eight year olds to see that. So they went and spent millions on Allahu Allah how much money they spent. Scientists research medicine, psychologists, doctors find this. So let's find the solution for this problem. Of the millions of dollars and hours and hours of research. You know, there's a solution out there was like a bit of a list several recent research. But I'll tell you the first two, number one, the instructors and the educators and the parents are supposed to teach the 789 year old kids, when adult content appears

00:40:52 --> 00:40:53

online, look away.

00:40:55 --> 00:40:56

She'd look away now that's in the color.

00:40:58 --> 00:41:03

And the second thing they should go to an adult and speak to him about that which they had seen online.

00:41:06 --> 00:41:08

And I tell you a book of guidance.

00:41:09 --> 00:41:13

You have to read the Quran with the intention of guidance.

00:41:15 --> 00:41:38

I tell you, my brothers and my sisters in Islam today people attempted they attempted to walk into a bank and take a beast alone an interest based loan right here lack Allah prices are rising, inflation was getting very difficult and he told the House he's tempted he sees a line in front of him. That's very long. Why not? Why should I join the list and join the line?

00:41:39 --> 00:41:45

When you're suffering of this problem, or being tested by this fitna

00:41:47 --> 00:41:57

to three words in the Quran, resolve it for you, if you read them with the intention of guidance, Allah azza wa jal he says what hamdulillah Hubei our help Rama Riba,

00:41:58 --> 00:42:11

Allah is the One who led justly to business transactions and sales and he if the bid ribbon will help them remember these two words are enough to deter the believer from this line that he's lining up but if the bank

00:42:13 --> 00:42:29

robber hollows my law, for one who created me, the one who revealed this book for my own goodness and benefit is telling me if the robber meaning there's no goodness in me walk away from this line, that someone who's reading the Quran for guidance

00:42:32 --> 00:42:43

meaning this person prefers what Allah is Seeing over that which is knifes wants to do that sincerity man. That's honesty in your relationship with Allah as being guided.

00:42:45 --> 00:42:52

You know, in Solothurn Fatiha everyday we read dinner or so often Mr. P right? 17 times a day.

00:42:53 --> 00:43:10

Dinner salata. Mustafi, it's a dryer, right? You're asking, oh Allah guide us to the straight path. But did you know that Allah has already answered this door? Did you know that? Oh, no. Who knew? Who knows that Allah has answered this already? And how did Allah answer it? Does anyone know?

00:43:11 --> 00:43:14

No. And we're reading the is 17 times a day

00:43:16 --> 00:43:18

for the last 20 years of your life.

00:43:19 --> 00:43:20

It didn't

00:43:23 --> 00:43:24

help you the mindset.

00:43:25 --> 00:43:36

How did he guide us to the street path? Then it's sort of sort of the book Allah tells us exactly how Alif Laam Meem their legal kita

00:43:37 --> 00:43:39

the leading the team

00:43:41 --> 00:43:57

that is the book in which there is absolutely no doubt in it. It is a great guidance for the believers. You asked it here who then I gave you guidance here is the book Al Quran. This is it.

00:43:59 --> 00:44:08

You cannot detach your salon Mr. Kim in your salon you cannot detach from the Quran. This is why we read Quran after Fatiha

00:44:10 --> 00:44:11

This is why

00:44:14 --> 00:44:16

Jonnie Salatin also refers to like

00:44:17 --> 00:44:25

first to like and felt the highs recited And then something of the guidance is recited this one that you asked for.

00:44:27 --> 00:44:56

This is what it is. This way your guidance is in Adam Quran yeah Didi Lottie, how come? This Quran guides to the upright path in every aspect of life. Whether you want to be a perfect Father, he is the guidance. A perfect mother he is the guidance is to be a good leader. He is the guidance. You want your finances in line, and in good shape is the guidance. What is it in life that you need? It's all in here.

00:44:57 --> 00:44:59

But we read the Quran incorrectly. With

00:45:00 --> 00:45:18

Read It For guidance. The first thing you have to read it for guidance, then follow. I give you this live with me these aliens. Adam Alayhis Salam lived in the Paradise. Yeah, that's where you live. That's the same paradise that you and I are always crying out to Allah for he was already there.

00:45:20 --> 00:45:27

They have then he ate from the tree. He disobeyed while saw Adam Allah who Allah forgive him. But there was a consequence for that.

00:45:28 --> 00:45:35

Allah azza wa jal, he said to mean Hashem, er, hello, Adam, Hawa and Iblees

00:45:36 --> 00:45:57

come down descend from the paradise one like you don't understand, you don't know we will never be able to understand the emotional aspect of this. How depressing is that? He he was in the Paradise, this one that we always want. We want to remain asking Allah for all our life. And we cry when we ask a lover he was in

00:45:59 --> 00:46:07

he's coming down the way here to Dallas Shotwell Burnett, a life of calamity and difficulty and worry and misery and stress.

00:46:08 --> 00:46:12

Can you understand what kind of depression there is involved in this?

00:46:14 --> 00:46:24

This is where death started. This is where sickness started. This is where Old Age started. This is where oppression started. This is where everything negative you can think of happened.

00:46:25 --> 00:46:27

He's going from there to here.

00:46:29 --> 00:46:31

But you know what Allah said? Okay,

00:46:33 --> 00:46:36

your he's in darkness. It's like there's no hope.

00:46:37 --> 00:46:44

losing hope altogether. Allah azza wa jal said in May at the end Nico mini who then

00:46:45 --> 00:47:04

he said to Adam with any guidance that comes to you from me, Allahu Akbar. Heather this guidance is like light in this darkness, in the oppression in the fetal in the sins in the sicknesses in the diseases in the troubles in the calamities in the warriors in the hardships

00:47:05 --> 00:47:25

for in the DM Nico mini who that? Yes, I'm sending you down to earth. But wait, there's hope don't lose it. Any guidance that comes to you from me. Loss and feminine, feminine Tada who day? Anyone who follows My Guidance COF Allah did not say anyone who reads my guidance.

00:47:27 --> 00:47:28

Reading is not enough.

00:47:29 --> 00:48:09

Anyone who follows Yanni there is in front of you, and you're walking behind it, meaning you're implementing for many Tebrau who day, fellow yo boo Lola Ashbaugh. He will never be misguided and never misled. When I ask him, and he'll never be miserable. He'll always be contented and happy, no matter what his situation is. Even if he became bankrupt for Lashkar even if he got divorced, even if his children died, even whatever calamity he went through. Well, I wish he will never ever be miserable. He might go through a lot of calamities.

00:48:10 --> 00:48:41

But this there'll be peace and contentment and acceptance. Why because the Quran teaches him this doesn't teach to remain patient in a moment of calamity and how to connect to Allah and how to read the calamities. Read them as love messages from Allah Stojan they are not Allah's punishment upon you that is Allah of cleaning you with the purifying with the How can you shift the attitude and have this attitude if you don't read the Quran and seek guidance from the Quran through a calamity of yours, lockbox? Finally

00:48:45 --> 00:48:47

it's the ID you know look

00:48:49 --> 00:48:50

many

00:48:52 --> 00:48:55

people have trouble with waking up for Salah television

00:48:56 --> 00:49:09

and there's an AMA Quran that will solve your problem if you read it with the intention of guidance and there is no other than one version one area one word solve your problem

00:49:10 --> 00:49:28

if you see I'm reading well treasure but I'm not praying and vision on time or say you're just reading you're not following through Allah said feminine Tada the one who followed my who that he will never be misguided he will not be miserable but didn't tell my brother sorry you will only see one failure but you're not following through

00:49:30 --> 00:49:36

what's gonna make you follow through read to add before one fishery what's to add before unfortunately

00:49:39 --> 00:49:42

the only the sort of before what were the last two eight have

00:49:43 --> 00:49:52

lost my quad in the Elayna Ieva home from in that Elena he said but home one fisherman in the Elayna Johan Allah has seen verily

00:49:54 --> 00:49:55

they will return to me.

00:49:56 --> 00:50:00

Everyone is going to return to Allah one day. For me Nalina has

00:50:00 --> 00:50:13

Sit on and after you return to Allah, we're going to hold them to account and judge them while in version. I swear by and Fisher, it's going to happen. I tell you something, you know the time of Fisher, it is similar to the time of resurrection.

00:50:14 --> 00:50:52

When people as resurrected from the graves and get up from the grave, what do they get up for your commonness a little bit. I mean, people get up on the day of judgment from the greens, only talk to Allah. Find. He said, There's nothing there. It's not a time of work. There's no businesses there that there's no children, to get them ready and take him to school. There's no phone calls at that time. There's no food at that there's nothing you are purely getting out of your grave and walking straight to Allah. Khaled Said he said then either paradise or Jana, we ask Allah azza wa jal to save us. And fisheries exactly like that. What times in Ephesians

00:50:54 --> 00:50:57

530. You wake up at 530

00:50:58 --> 00:51:12

When you get up at 530 This is not a time of eating. It's not a time of dropping off children to school. It is not a time of business and taking phone calls and responding to emails and it's a time people are sleeping.

00:51:13 --> 00:51:24

So sick people are sleeping and they're in their graves. They haven't resurrected yet. The one who gets a professional can only get up at that time for Allah.

00:51:25 --> 00:51:43

He cannot mix it with anything else. It's the most sincere prayer of the day. To add to your reading this is Elaine a bomb from a Marlena herbal Maleficent you know what to show Kenny Rahim Allah He said, he said the one who doesn't get up for SONET and Fisher

00:51:44 --> 00:52:04

will panic and struggle on the Day of Judgment when he comes out from his grave walking to Allah. Because he was never used to this walk in this whole life. He also used to say he gets up or he panicked, struggling, scared, terrified, and waver. This is the first time I ever get up. And I'm walking to Allah. He never did this in my life.

00:52:05 --> 00:52:26

Lacking the one who used to do it during his life, and got up for Salat al Fajr walked to the house of Allah lined up among the believers and prayed visually with them. And Allah azza wa jal will help him on the day of judgment, He comes out from his grief, happy and excited. I've done this before. I know the drill.

00:52:28 --> 00:52:43

There's nothing for me to worry. I always used to get up Lila, at this time. When people were dead in their beds, I get up blow up behind me. So what's different for me now? I've gotten up from my grief, and I'm walking let me

00:52:45 --> 00:53:04

see when you do that, inspired by these eight, and they become a reason for why now you will get up for solid pleasure. Now you're reading with the intention of guidance. And and now we've corrected our citation of the Quran and Kareem otherwise, we're just reading we're not following.

00:53:05 --> 00:53:06

And that's why we suffer.

00:53:07 --> 00:53:31

And there are plenty of examples that can be given in this regard. So my brothers and sisters in Islam. And of course you all know that of Quran is called a vicar or the reminder. Why? Because the human being forgets that the you can't even remember what you ate three days ago. You think you're going to remember the message of Allah from the beginning to the end of the Quran without reading it.

00:53:32 --> 00:53:47

That's another reason for why we read the Quran to remind ourselves, I told you can't remember what you dress a week ago. Can you remember what the color of your shirt or shirt was? No, no, you can't remember? You think you're going to remember 604 pages

00:53:48 --> 00:53:57

without reading and attending to them regularly. Like I'll give you an example. You see this is an Apple phone. How famous is the Apple phone?

00:53:58 --> 00:54:01

This is in everyone's pocket. There is not any to

00:54:02 --> 00:54:50

put down the Samsung, but Apple Samsung, whatever it is these famous famous phones. Why does the Apple company find the need to spend millions and millions and millions of dollars in marketing their Apple phone every single day of the across the globe with massive billboards and banners just just the phone is the hammer. Why? Why do they feel the need that we have to plaster our phone and spend millions of dollars advertising it to people who's going to forget Apple who, who like me, it's in your hand and in your phone every day. It's in your pocket every day that you might, you might forget if you walked out of your house without the mobile in your hand. You will remember the

00:54:50 --> 00:54:59

mobile in the house more than you'll remember that you left your child in the house. That's how attached we are to the mobile and they find the need

00:55:00 --> 00:55:03

to always remind you about it. So does that mean?

00:55:04 --> 00:55:16

What does that mean? We need to be reminded of the plan. We need to pick up a plan and read everyday to see what Allah has messages. You know, the one who read a ad, about Allah's punishment today

00:55:17 --> 00:55:51

is more careful in keeping away from a sin. Then the one who read the ayat of the Hellfire last Ramadan because he forgot, he forgot naturally human beings forget the one who read May and fill them in colon Illa de Hirak even read every word you speak there are angels that are writing and recording the one who who read this a a fresh today, he'll be much more careful in what he says and what he comments as opposed to someone who read this air a year ago, because it's not it's not fresh, it's not alive, it is not working in his heart and mind. So there

00:55:52 --> 00:55:59

so we are in need of reading the Quran to remember to remember what Allah has told us remember our guidance?

00:56:00 --> 00:56:17

Allahu Allah and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept our gathering to forgive our sins and our shortcomings and to guide us through the Quran and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to elevate our rank and to purify our hearts in our vertical called the rollin Solomon was Salam o Velika. I didn't have you know Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi as you mining

00:56:19 --> 00:56:25
