Now there are three terms used in this talk of mine learn which we know that we need to seek gain the knowledge knowledge about what the second term defines it, Dean, what is Dean, Dean is the complete way of life, the complete conduct of life. And Allah subhanho wa Taala termed this Deen of Islam, a lot of malaria he says in Surah, two the Allium run surah number three are number 19. Allah subhanaw taala says in Medina and Allah
in Islam, the only religion The only way of life acceptable recognized in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala is early Islam. So learn Deen and this theme comprises of the rights of the Creator Allah Subhana huhtala and the rights of the creation this being which we need to learn how often
once a lifetime, once a year. Know My beloved brothers and sisters, we need to learn Deen daily and Subhan Allah when we actually know why do we need to learn at the first instance will remember the first worry the first revelation came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in reference to what it para read recite
is knowledge comes before action.
And we have the prophets.
Muslim, the seeking of the knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim. Now this also clarifies that the Prophet system user could lead which means everyone without an exception. So also get the clarification from this hadith that seeking knowledge learning about the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala is not exclusive to the Allah ma Yes, we know that they are specialized. They have advanced learning they gain the authority in different or alone. But then the fact remains that every Muslim we need to learn our Deen in order to live our Deen in sha Allah, my beloved brothers and sisters. How do we need to learn as we said we need to learn it daily. You know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam said something beautiful, and this is something practical, realistic. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said we're in I have Bella amily illa Allah heeta Allah, Allah subhanaw taala through prophets Islam told this beautiful thing. The prophets lessons he said, What in heaven Amelie Illa Allah heeta Allah are the one who were in Allah, the Most Beloved deeds the best actions in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala are those which are done a drummer who regularly consistently continuously even though we're in Perla even though they're little, so we need to learn Deen daily even if it is less, my beloved brothers and sisters, learning the deen of
Allah subhanho wa Taala is extremely important. And the fact of the matter why we have this rain summit and we all bring the part of it and you all will be
The the part of it is to understand that this is really important. The journey individually or good prize have to be there in terms of the learning the deen of Allah subhanaw taala daily. So it is extremely important. It is extremely important to learn d&d because it builds our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. We grant you know, we are granted the the higher ranks by Allah subhanaw taala, as he says, In surah, tun majorda surah number 58 iron up 11 that Allah raises the ranks of those who believe and those who are given knowledge Subhan Allah so Allah raises the people who learn the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. Learning the deen is extremely important because it actually
purifies our heart, it actually you know, nourishes our soul, it gives the direction to our bodies for the path which is of success, which gains salvation be as an Allahu taala. So learning the deen daily, my beloved brothers and sisters, is extremely important as it empowers and shapes us holistically. We need to also understand that in society, where we live in we find actually three kinds of people when it comes to knowledge. The first group we find that those people who have knowledge, but they then they actually lack what practice. This is not the category that we definitely want to be in. The second category of the people that we find is those people, and I'm
sure you will come across those kinds of people. Those people who do not want to gain knowledge, you know why? Because they feel that the moment they actually gain knowledge, they will start being held accountable. As such, it's better not to gain knowledge. Well, this is again, the category that will be doomed. The third category of the people are those people who see who learn the knowledge of the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. And they also strive, they also try to practice the deen as much as they can. This is the benchmark that we need to keep in mind that we have to be in insha Allah, my beloved brothers and sisters, I would also like to share with you some of the common mistakes that
we actually do during the journey of learning and Subhanallah these mistakes actually come as an obstruction as a hurdle in our journey of learning. What is the first mistake that we do? The first mistake that we do is we actually do not, do not ask Allah to grant us knowledge. You see, Allah subhanaw taala is very counted, he instructed and commanded us called rugby Zinni, Wilma, say, oh my lord, increase me in knowledge. So when Allah, Allah, Allah mean, he is saying, to ask Allah, to grant and to, to give knowledge and to give the increase in the knowledge, we have to make sure that we do how many of us sincerely speaking, my beloved brothers and sisters, ask Allah to grant
knowledge. So this is the first mistake that we need to correct that we need to, you know, always, you know, ask Allah to grant knowledge number to my beloved brothers and sisters, the mistake that we actually do is we try to learn something really big human does tasks that we try to put on table, we end up learning nothing. So we need to start with something small, and then we gradually grow. So this is how we actually identify the mistake. And this is we this is how we actually correct our mistakes. Another mistake that we actually do is we we lack commitment, you know, the deen of Allah subhanaw taala should be learned with commitment and many times, we do not know the benefits and the
virtues of of these, you know, beautiful journeys of learning and that's the reason we do not show that much of interest. We need to know the benefits and the virtues of learning is extremely high. You know, a lot of Buddha he marks a distinguished you know, pointer in the Quran the idea with which I recited Allah subhanaw taala says those people who no equal to those people who do not know I mean, this is not a never be a comparison. Those people who know those people
have knowledge and when we say knowledge, we know that the scholars have said learners are only those who act, who practice those are the actual learners otherwise, is just a piece of information. If the fruits of knowledge is not translated and manifested in our actions in our behavior, then that's not knowledge. It's just a piece of information that you're storing. So the result and the impact of knowledge must be quite obvious in the actions of the believer. So this is again, we need to identify the mistake that we sometimes lack commitment and the remedy is we need to be committed to learn the deen of Allah subhanaw taala also we tend to actually you know, lack this this pointer
of not having that willingness to sacrifice, you see Allah subhanaw taala he says, In surah uncovered surah number 29 and number 69, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, When levina jaha delphina learner Deanna home Sula, now we're in Allah llamada sin in Allah subhanho wa Taala says those who strive in our path, we create numerous ways, ways which you might never imagine. And Allah loves those who are mercenaries who are the good doers. So beloved brothers and sisters, we need to understand that we need to identify these common mistakes and mean to you know, resolve those in order to, you know, enhance and upgrade ourselves. Now, I would like to share with you something
which is really really important. Many times we actually tend to undermine ourselves and what the blessings Allah has given us.
We know that in Islam, the essential sources of Islam is the Quran, the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as it was understood and practiced by the Sahaba, that they are the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this these are the sources, the essential sources, how do we actually empower ourselves and learn these sources? Through resources? What are the resources to learn Dean daily? Number one, my beloved brothers and sisters, we need to look within ourselves have a look within you, there are resources, which are so powerful, so important that through these resources, you actually access to that which is external resources. Now, when I
say these are the inbuilt resources, what are they? Your mind, for example, Subhan Allah we know and adult human brain is just one and a half gauging the capacity, or the storage of the beautiful, you know, memory that Allah subhanaw taala has given in just a small obon that's called brain is quite amazing. It can actually possess, you know, 2.5 petabytes of information. That's huge. I mean, it's more than 1000 terabytes, you can imagine and supplant a lot the space in the storage and our brain is such that it is so amazing that it has actually 1 billion neurons, and each neuron forms 1000 connections to other neurons that results to actually trillions of connections, and to panela each
neuron has a capacity to actually gain or store multiple memories, that actually increases the capacity of our brain. exponentially. Allahu Akbar, Fatah Baraka low arsenal. holochain Glory be to Allah the best one to create. So the brain is so valuable, so powerful that we should never ever think that you know what, I'm 40 years old, I'm 50 years old. How can I memorize the whole Quran? Well, you can if you're willing to, if you are willing to so we need to learn the deen of Allah subhanaw taala daily by understanding what we have been blessed with, like for example, our heart, our heart actually my brothers and sisters it actually absorbs the inflammation, the learning of the
deen of Allah subhanaw taala and it keeps us you know it calm Subhanallah the eyes that we see we access the information with our sight and Subhanallah our eyesight has a power of 560 megapixel. So we can we can have some times you know a picture memory so as we say, so, the eyes, the ears, which we listen to the
The brain that we keep it you know intact with a with a memory, which is so amazing. Use these resources My beloved brothers and sisters in order to learn Deen daily Subhan Allah now we talk very much about we need to learn we need what do we need to learn? Every one of us we need to understand as general Muslims, you know, I'm not talking about the scholars they have Mashallah, you know, they've been graduated and then they do the PhDs and their doctorates, you know, in specialization, but as generally muslimeen we need to have an agenda a Muslim, individual curriculum, to know where do we need to, you know, go which direction we need to learn our Deen daily, so we need to have a
clear understanding a beautiful framework with complete clarity. What do we need to learn daily? So we begin with number one we need to know about Allah subhanaw taala know the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala each name a day.
It doesn't matter. You don't need to memorize all 99 names in one hour and forget the next hour know you can memorize just one name for example, or rakeem the error watcher so when you met when you learn this one name, live with this name throughout the day, and then followed up with the next name and then followed up with another name.
You will be able to understand who Allah is Allahu Akbar. Similarly, we need to know about the Prophet sallallahu alisyn a bit by bit doesn't matter you don't need to raise in order to finish the CETA book in one hour. No, you can go gradually pieces of information put it in your in your life live by it and that's how you learn the de Deen of Allah subhanaw taala daily you need to know about our Hara, what is Jana? What is a knot so make sure that you have a scale for example, you know one thing about Jenna every day you know one thing about Jana one you know every day So, slowly the whole matter is the most beneficial work and the most beloved deed as we said in the sight of Allah
is a duanmu that which is done regularly, consistently, daily. That is why we say learn Deen day, right? Learn the angelin similarly, we need to also memorize and understand you know the some of the aspects of the history some of the important Pillars of Islam for example, Salah take a moment my beloved brothers and sisters, learn about it. Learn about the actions of Salah the pillars of Salah the beauties of Salah understand and learn and this can be a process you go slowly most of the times we try to hurry up and you know try to gain the information at one goal and actually leaves in one goal Allahu Akbar, so we need to learn Deen daily.
Similarly, we need to have for example, the understanding and the learning of the pillars of Islam the pillars of Eman 70 major sins for example, you need to know each sin you try to know every single day by in 70 days you will be aware of what are those 70 major sins in Islam Subhan Allah so that you can abstain yourself from so what I'm trying to say is you need to have a curriculum, a set agenda in order to learn Deen daily inshallah. I would like to also share in conclusion some of the tips you know, many times we highlight the importance of learning knowledge about the deen and its virtues as beauties all well and good. We also need to actually share and provide you the way what
is the way what are the tips what are the methods that we can actually you know, adopt in order to learn Deen daily so what are those steps number one number one my beloved brothers and sisters, we need to have this concept in our mind that we have to learn Deen daily. This desire of learning been daily must be established in our lives everyone as profits in the lower insolence. He said, it is the freedom It is the responsibility it is the obligation upon every Muslim male and female to learn about the deen of Allah subhanaw taala so we need to have this desire this concept very clear in our minds that we need to learn Deen daily this
is number one and supplement that with number two and that is MiG tau. As we said Robbie Zinnia Elma also every single day in the US girl, you know, in the supplications that we do in the morning. What do we ask Allah Subhana? Allah, Allah humma Nah, Farah, Oh Allah grant us knowledge that which is beneficial. So we need to ask Allah subhanaw taala how often every day, every day daily, we need to ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us the beneficial knowledge in Islam. Number three, we need to plan a night before what do we need to learn tomorrow? You, me every one of us, we need to have this agenda very clear tomorrow. And don't go with the quantity as I said, again and again. Even if it's
little, if it's continuous, it's beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala so one thing What are you going to learn tomorrow planet a day before that will prepare your mind and this mindset will drive you in sha Allah be isn't Allahu taala number three, the most common gadget that we have in our lives, which we are so much attached with, is our mobile phones, use your phones for learning, put the screen saver, you know, put the screen saver, whatever you want to learn a small bit of it, put it and you we know that you know, we perhaps look at the phone probably you know hundreds of times every single day. So this is how you will actually you know refresh what you are going to learn in
sha Allah, the sisters, the homemakers who are at home, they can actually you know paste the stickers, the learning posters on their refrigerators or above their cooking ranges or wherever they think that they look at a lot. So this is how you also learn the daily brothers who actually travel you know Subhanallah when you know that you're going through, for example, Sera series, you can you know, watch or you can actually listen to any authentic you know, Sera series, every single day, you perhaps travel for two hours for one hour, put it in an audio, and this is how you actually grow slowly and slowly. Within a month's time you know that you're done with the Syrah Allahu Akbar. So
this is how you actually need to have this mindset in order to learn Deen daily. Also, if you're working in offices, you know, on your tables, put some flashcards about learning, what are you going to learn today just put the flashcard and keep on you know, looking at it at regular intervals. And that's how it becomes a part of your, you know, memory and Subhanallah to be honest with you, learning should be the lifestyle of a believer, Allahu Akbar, we have to have this agenda of learning every single day. Similarly, one of the powerful way for the learning retention is to share it with people you know, share it with your family members, what are you what have you learned, you
know, today, what is the new thing that you have learned, share it with your family, share it with your friends, share it with your relatives, and this is this is how you actually gain more knowledge. Because knowledge is something it increases when you actually share it. So it never reduces. So when you share you actually grow in your knowledge. And obviously, the other person benefits it will you know with it insha Allah also you need to have a small even if it's small, doesn't matter, you need to have a library at home. And, and I'm talking about physical books. We need to know for example, in in Sahih al Bukhari, if you're referring to the English language, how
many volumes are there and whenever you want to refer you can go and refer Yes, I know we are living in the age of science and technology, perhaps the entire you know, could to be sitter could be, you know, in a in a website, and there are so many Subhan Allah, which we can use, but then we need to know that when we actually touch the book, the Hadith of the fool or loss of the lover, I said when we read it from the book, it's it has a different experience altogether. Also my beloved brothers and sisters as a part of tip, we need to be connected with those who are the scholars, those are the orlimar those are at least the students of knowledge so that we can always be in connection with
those people and that will keep our learning active and that will help us to continue that you know our learning with activeness insha Allah be as an ally tala. Similarly, we need to have learning partners as we say learning buddies, right? When these learning buddies are there that Subhanallah you actually
gain the momentum of learning together and that has a beauty in itself. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam he says, Allah He ma Gemma, the mercy of Allah of the hand of Allah subhanaw taala is on the JAMA on the group Subhana Allah so we need to have different and these are just few tips My beloved brothers and sisters that I've shared with all of you, in order to you know highlight the importance of learning the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala daily, the benefits the you know, virtues and the impact of learning Deen daily is immense. And you will see every day every day there is a transformation in your life when you're learning the dean daily. My beloved brothers and sisters, I
know we are shortage of time. We can talk a lot about these things to panela but we ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us you know benefit from what we spoke about. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our minds and hearts for learning have this quest, this desire to learn a bit every single day so that we may grow you know exponentially inshallah over a period of time, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us wisdom.
That this knowledge that we are gaining, it's not for anyone to show off or to argue with, it's only for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we need to have our sincerity intact when we learn the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala daily We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bless each one of us with the highest levels of Jannah witnessing the face of Allah subhanaw taala and having the company of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we are here to Diana Anil hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen
