The topic of my talk tonight is rites of the Quran. As we know that this is the month of the Quran. Ramadan is the month of Quran where we see the Muslims across the globe, they get closer to the Glorious Quran, the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and they get motivated and inspired with the message of the Glorious Quran.
And I feel it is relevant and significant to talk at this moment at this phase of the lives of the Muslims, about the rights of the Glorious Quran.
As the saying goes, bent the road when it's hot. So when we are highly motivated, our spiritual level is high. We are motivated with the with the beauties of the Glorious Quran in the month of Ramadan. It is relevant to talk about the rights of the Quran with an objective that we may inshallah be an ally to Allah implement that in our lives for the rest of our life.
Before we dwell into the subject, I would like to share with you a quick journey through the Quran.
The Glorious Quran is the speech of Allah subhanho wa taala. It is generally perceived as only the book of Baraka, the book of blessings, however,
the benefits or the offering of the Glorious Quran does not get limited with the blessings and the mercy however, it be it goes beyond that, the Glorious Quran, it is the solution for the whole of humanity. It is a book of social justice, it is a book of economic system, it is a book that frames or gives the framework for the political system, it is the cure for the diseases, it is the book, which provides remedy for the illness.
The word Quran, it comes from few Arabic words. Number one is per ton, which means the most recited
Korea tune which means
cut in are done which means a collection of various points and the context the best structure.
It is also derived from the root word or unknown, which means joining so the Glorious Quran, it is the book which is maximum the read in the world. It is the book
which has got the necessary information which is useful for the success of this world and the hereafter. It is the book which has the context and the best structure. The Glorious Quran is the book which has the incidence, the stories that joins together
the Glorious Quran, my dear brothers and sisters, it is the most valuable book for the Muslims.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed this book in this great month of Ramadan. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says Shahid Ramadan Allah the EU Zilla feel Quran who the Lynas Verbena demeanor. Houda word for con it was the
month of Ramadan in which Allah subhanho wa Taala has sent down the Glorious Quran.
The Quran has got various sutras Surah comes from the root word Surah which means boundaries and each Surah
has many ayat,
the word IRA, it means
and evidence or proof or a fact, each IRA in the Quran and hamdulillah there are more than 6000 Ira, which means there are more than 6000 evidences proves facts, and each IR has got kalimat which is the word and each word has a huff, which is a word which is a letter. So, each letter of the Quran is the word of Allah is from Allah subhanaw taala. Each galima of the Quran is from Allah subhanho wa Taala each ayat of the Quran is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and all the Sutras of the Quran is from Allah subhanahu wa taala the Glorious Quran
it is the book which transforms the people from the darkness to the light and hamdulillah the Glorious Quran was sent down and it has got various names like for example, Al Quran, which is the crowning name which every Muslim knows the Quran, it means, the most recited as mentioned in surah baqarah surah number two or number 185 It is also considered and it has a name and Furqan which means the criterion to judge right from wrong. It is also named as a victory which means the reminder it reminds people about the Creator and His rights. It reminds people about the rights of the creation as well. The gross Quran also has a name called Tenzin, which means the book which is
sent down as Allah subhanaw taala he says in Surah, Zuma surah number 39 is number one. So the good is Quran has got all these names. And one may want to know that when and how the Glorious Quran was revealed, as we know the Glorious Quran, it was revealed at once in Laila to cover in the Night of Decree in the month of Ramadan, Allah subhanaw taala says shall Ramadan Allah Zi on Zilla Quran, it was the month of Ramadan in which Quran was revealed. In Nyanza La Villa Illa till it was the Night of Decree when the whole Quran was revealed from Lodi my foods to buy to the reserve the lowest of the last heavens. And from there, it came it was sent down to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam over a span of 23 years.
Bit by bit, versus by was Surah by surah. And that's how the whole Quran was revealed.
The Glorious Quran has a purpose. Allah subhanho wa Taala He sent down this book, The Glorious Quran with a key purpose number one being
the primary most message is that the whole of humanity should submit and come back to Allah subhanaw taala and should submit to Him alone. Another purpose that we actually derive from the Quran, it came to save people's intellect it came to save the intellect of the humans from the greatest crime and that is surely that is associating partners with Allah subhanahu wa taala it game to remind us about the stories of the past the prophets and the messengers, it came to revive our iman in Allah subhanho wa taala. The Glorious Quran majorly contains number one who sold a realm it is a book which has got the knowledge of the belief, the belief system is absolutely preserved in the Glorious
Quran. It has got a luminary Bada, which means the principles of worship like salah, Zakka, some Hajj and other Ibadat it has got the history of the successful and perished nations. It has got the rulings for the way
of life. It is the best book for the art of living the Glorious Quran.
Let us now get into the subject of what are the rights of the Glorious Quran.
The Glorious Quran
has got rights, and we have got duties towards the Glorious Quran. And these rights are so important that these rights and the fulfillment of these rights will prevent a Muslim to be away from those people who will do Hijra from the Glorious Quran that contain that was mentioned by Allah subhanaw taala registered in the Glorious Quran of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It's very clear.
Allah subhanaw taala says we're calling on Rasul and on that day, the messenger would say, your rugby Oh my lord in kilometer kazoo Hartzell Khurana Maha Jura. These are the people of myoma mighty nation who have migrated from the Glorious Quran. So what does the migration from the Quran would mean? My dear brothers and sisters, in the short time available, I would like to share with you five rights of the Glorious Quran. And one must take this as a takeaway from the session five rights of the Buddhist Quran the main five duties that every Muslim must fulfill towards the Buddhist Quran.
The first one is to believe in the Quran, as it should be believed.
Our belief in the Glorious Quran is that it is the Arabic speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala number one. Number two, we believe that it was revealed more than 1400 years back to Prophet Muhammad salallahu Alaihe Salam number three, the wording and the meaning of the Glorious Quran every eye off it is from Allah subhanaw taala. Number four, to believe that it was preserved as a Messiah from cover to cover number five, to believe that it came through mutawatir chain that means the strongest chain of narrators, which basically reflects that there is no doubt about it. And number six, it is a challenge for the whole of mankind.
This is the belief that every Muslim must have towards the Quran and which acts like a rite of the Quran. The belief of the Quran has to be convinced we Muslims need to be convinced about the Glorious Quran. It's only when we are convinced and our belief is certain of the Quran. In the Glorious Quran, we can actually then process or proceed the further writes of the Quran. For instance, if you strongly believe if you are convinced that the Glorious Quran is from Allah subhanho wa Taala then V will give actual importance, the conscious importance towards reading it, towards understanding it towards practicing it towards promoting it. So the Glorious Quran has the
first right to believe in it.
If a Muslim
does not have a certain belief in the Glorious Quran, it is as though he is not fulfilling the right of the Glorious Quran. So for a Muslim
to be a strong Muslim, in terms of believing in the Glorious Quran, he has to believe in every letter of it, all these things which comes from Allah subhanaw taala revealed to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is the first write of the Glorious Quran. Number two, we must read the Glorious Quran. When one understands and convinced that this is from Allah subhanaw taala one will have to make a strong effort in order to read the Glorious Quran as it should be read my dear brothers and sisters, how many books we might have read so far. If we are on an average of average age of 25 years, we might have read through our schooling, our university level so many books. Have
you ever sat down and think how much importance Have you have I given to the Glorious Quran and it's
Reading how much struggle have V put in in order to read the Quran, as it should be read. The guru's Quran has a right tool to be read, as it is supposed to be read. The Glorious Quran is is a book my brothers and sisters, by reading itself gives you Baraka gives you blessings Alhamdulillah
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Hi
my Lama, the best of you are those the treasure that Allah subhanaw taala will give to you are those who, who learn the Quran and teach it to others, the Glorious Quran, my brothers and sisters, it has to be read as maximum as it should be. And it should be read the proper that you read my courage. So one has to actually struggle strive and make an effort to read the Quran as it should be read. My brothers and sisters, Allah Subhana Allah Allah says in surah Taha surah number 20 ayah, number 124. Woman ARA and victory for Ananda whom are ancient on banca when national who yo Maliki Yama Tiama Allahu Akbar,
Allah subhanho wa Taala he says about those people who turns away from the reminder from the Glorious Quran, Allah says, Those who turned away from my reminder, my Quran, my Kitab, Allah will make his life a depressed life.
If Allah makes one's life, a depressed life, because he is away from the Quran, then who will bring joy in our life, then who will bring the pleasure in our life, then who will bring the satisfaction, the contentment in our life? So one has to majorly read the Glorious Quran, one must not turn away from the reminder. And Allah continues, he says, we're not sure who yo Malkia Matsuyama and on that day, in the Hereafter, he will be raised as a blind person. Imagine my brothers and sisters, imagine Allah subhanho wa Taala has given this beautiful namah eye sight through which we see we experience we take joy from witnessing the creation, we make the differentiation of the colors, we witness the
best of the creations. Allah subhanaw taala has given us this eyesight if this eyes are not engaged and witness in the reading of the Glorious Quran, then what will have what will have the impact of these eyes, my brothers and sisters. So one must make sure that we should fulfill the right of the Quran. And that is to read the Quran, as it should be read. The third write of the Glorious Quran is that we must understand the Glorious Quran
after being convinced that this is from Allah subhanaw taala having the certain belief and then having the certainty that the Glorious Quran is the book which has to be read maximum Li, we must make an effort to understand it. We know for a fact that the Muslims around the globe around 80% are non Arabs, meaning whose language whose mother tongue is not Arabic. But then
is it not important that your and my master is conveying the message to you and us to all of us, my brothers and sisters? Is it not sufficient for Allah subhanaw taala to send a message for us to make a strong struggle in order to understand that message.
The whole point of the Glorious Quran is to implement the Quran How will you properly implement the Quran if you don't understand the Glorious Quran? So one must make an effort and Wallahi Allah subhanaw taala repeatedly mentioned this IR in the Glorious Quran will occur the yes sir prana victory for Hilmi Medaka and it is we who made the Quran easy to remember and understand Allah subhanaw taala and sent to the Quran the very purpose of it that we must bring this Quran to our understanding, we must contemplate and reflect upon the Quran. How will they implement the Quran without understanding it? How will we reflect upon the Quran without
understanding its meanings?
Allah subhanaw taala says
For now, yet the Brunel Quran, Do they not consider Quran with care? Do they not ponder over the Glorious Quran Amala Reuben, follow her or are their hearts are locked upon Allahu Akbar, if our hearts are not, because we do not understand the Quran, then our lives are lost my brothers and sisters, we must make a strong effort in order to fulfill this rite of understanding it. That's number three. Number four, my brothers and sisters, the rite of the Quran is that we must practice it, the Quran, it should not be just in our hearts or hands, it should be in our lives as well. It's only then you will find the change within it's only then you will see the experience of making
yourself better. It's only upon the implementation of the Glorious Quran in your lives. It is the implementation of the Quran that fulfills the fourth write of the Glorious Quran. And if we don't do so, my brothers and sisters, if you don't do so, it is as though we are migrating from the Glorious Quran. Come out of that perception that it is just the book of blessings. It is no doubt about it. But then it has much more to offer. We see all around us the problems, the family problems, the social problems, the political problems, the problems in the marketplaces, the problems in our lives, what is the remedy? What is the rescue? What is the solution? It lies in the Quran in your
and my makers manual in the Quran, which is the instruction manual for the whole of humanity. Allah subhanaw taala he says, this is the blessed book. So follow it and be conscious show that Allah will may have mercy upon you. In order to gain mercy, we must follow the Glorious Quran and we must be conscious of the Glorious Quran. And this is the real fulfillment of the purpose of the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala he says in Surah Ibrahim surah number 14 Our number one ally flam ro Kitab, Bonanza Allah Who Lake lead to Christian NAS Amina Zulu Mati Illa, nor be izany Rubbing him. Allah subhanaw taala says Al Islam rah, this is the Book which We have given to you, O Muhammad, Islam, show that
you may take people from darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge, from the darkness of disbelief to the brightness of belief in one Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala
This is the real importance that the Quran provides my brothers and sisters to implement it the fourth fifth, right, which is the final right, inshallah with which I would like to conclude Inshallah, is to promote this Quran to the people who do not know about it. It is your my duty to take this message to those who are unaware, although it is their book as well. It is the bulk of the whole for the whole of humanity, it is the guidance for the whole of humanity. But then the Muslims think that this is their book only. It's our book and hamdulillah but it's the book, which is meant for the whole of humanity. And this is how we should implement this Quran by conveying the message
of the Glorious Quran to the rest of the mankind. Our results in Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said, believe who Ernie, what do I propagate from me? Even if you know one idea, who amongst us can claim that I don't know one either. I can't imagine that a person is a Muslim and he does not know what he does not know call who Allah Who
says about the one and only if you know that you are responsible for that, and you will be accountable for that and you will be judged about it.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said and Quran who who jutsu luck,
the Quran, it can be in favor of you or it can be against you. So those who fulfill the rights of the Quran, the Quran is for sure in favor of them. In fact, the Quran will come on the day of judgment in the hereafter when we would need the help the most and would come as an intercessor and that intercession will be accepted.
Taking the message of the blueness Quran is an imperative is a duty of one in all my brothers and sisters depending on the capacity
80 It doesn't matter whether you give a public talk or not, it doesn't matter whether you you give it in a bigger or a smaller level, it doesn't matter. Do it as per your capacity, do it as the as per your capability, as per your means and resources, but then doing it is an obligation. These are the five rights that the Glorious Quran has over us, my brothers and these are the five rights and the duties that we have to actually offer and we have to actually implement towards the Glorious Quran We ask Allah subhanaw taala that this month of Baraka this month of blessing has probably has brought us all together to the to the rope of Allah to the book of Allah subhanaw taala let this
closeness be dead intact. My brothers and sisters, let this closeness with the Quran make us the companion of the Glorious Quran. Let this closeness be dead because this closeness of the Quran will help you to be aware of your maker. This closeness of the Quran will help you to be aware of the true love and the obedience of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, this closeness will help you the clauses of the Quran will help you and enable you to understand the pleasures that Allah Bonanza kept for the believers the real bliss. The closeness of the Quran will help you and enable us to understand that how severe how Tarmin the punishment will be for those who disbelieve in the Quran.
The closeness of the Glorious Quran, my brothers and sisters will help us to get the intercession on that day when we would need it the most. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to improve our relation with the Quran. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to help us implement the Glorious Quran and fulfill all the rights that I've mentioned. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala finally, to help us be among those who will be with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Jannah Ameen what?
