Welcome to the program, Islam insight, a very special series essentially dedicated for a new Muslim brothers and sisters, how do we commit ourselves to gain knowledge regarding Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him like to know is he just compulsory for him? Somebody told me that a Muslim is not allowed to have relationship with a non Muslim knowledge revives the spirit of Islam.
What is our responsibility towards growth, and especially for us as Muslims, right? The responsibility remains same
for all the people, especially for the new Muslims, because they come from different backgrounds, especially those who are teenagers or adult, it becomes a bit difficult for them to learn to read. However, the more the difficulty is, the more reward that a person gets.
The glorious Koran is a book that has rights that we need to fulfill. The glorious Koran is a book that we have duties towards it, to fulfill those rights of the Quran. What are those duties that we owe towards the glorious Koran? Number one, our duty towards the glorious Koran is to believe in it is to believe in it as the last and final revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. To believe in it, that it came from Allah subhanaw taala every letter of the Quran is from Allah, to believe that every eye of the Quran is from Allah, to believe that every suitor of the Quran is from Allah, to believe that the whole surah every letter of it is from Allah subhanaw taala. So first duty that we
have towards the Glorious Quran is that we must believe in it.
Number two, the duty that we have towards the Quran is we must read it, we must read it the way it should be read, we must read it, because this is a healing to the heart, mind and soul. We must read it because without reading this book, how can you gradually progress? We need to read it as a responsibility because it was told it was commanded in the very first revelation, sent down by Allah subhanaw taala. to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. It says in Surah, Allah surah number 96 and number one, what does it say it Cora ikura bismi Arabic Allah the kulluk, read, recite, learn in the name of your Lord who create, read, repeat, recite. recitation is one of the beauties that we have
towards the glorious Koran. And this we need to be very clear my brothers as new Muslims you might face initially
difficulty in pronouncing the words the letters of the Arabic word vocabulary of the Arabic names or the Arabic phrases or the Arabic ayat which are mentioned in the Quran. But when you initiate, when you strive, when you struggle, insha Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will make easy for you to learn these Ayat of Allah subhanho wa Taala and prophets Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said a very beautiful, saying, he said a person who reads or an easily he will have one reward for a person, I can read very easily, I'll have only one reward, but for a person who sincerely recites it, even though he finds it difficulty, a finds certain letters in the in the Arabic language are a bit difficult to
pronounce, especially for those whose native language is different. Who's whose Arabic is a is a foreign language for them. For example, ball is a different it's a bit difficult for a person to learn initially. I mean, it's a bit difficult for a person to learn. But if a person strives Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he said
If a person strives and he, he gets agitated, he he gets stuck up. And but again he strives further, he gets to rewards, one for reading it to for struggling to read. So, reciting, and reading the glorious Koran is the second responsibility that we have to fulfill as an obligation towards the Quran. And this book has to be recited every single day, it should not be recited and re read only in the month of Ramadan. Because we don't need guidance only in the month of Ramadan. We need guidance every single day. So we need to recite and read this book like no other book, we need to read it with a belief that this is from a last panel that is second. The third is we need to
understand it. The purpose of the Quran cannot be fulfilled. If we don't understand the book, for example, you have a very beloved and a close friend, who is a Chinese and you don't know Chinese and he sends you the letter in Chinese language. What do you do with that? What do you do with that you will try to get it translated to know what your beloved friend has mentioned it to you has brought to you this is from Allah subhanaw taala. If we find a difficulty in learning the Arabic language, the Quran, directly, we have the facility to at least understand the sense of the meanings of the rules for art to translation, whichever translation which is authentic, which is of your own
language, you can understand the rules for art and the last panel to Allah He says insurance will cover in Surah number 54 and number 17 insert row cover surah number 54 and number 22 in Surah to tamashiro number 54 and number 32 and insurance will cover surah number 54 and number 40 Allah subhanaw taala says what occurred, yes, sir nl Khurana Vickery for Khalid muda Allah subhanaw taala says, indeed, we have made the Quran easy for you to understand and remember. So when Allah makes this promise that he had made this Koran easy for us to understand and to remember. So we need to make sure that we will get the real suits from the Quran. Only when we understand it, we need to
make sure that as an obligation as a duty towards the glorious poron that we must understand the rules for and it's only then you will know what your Creator is talking to you. How will you believe in something when you don't understand? You see, you need to make sure that you need to understand the glorious Koran in order to fulfill our duty towards it. Number four, you need to make sure that you remember it as a last part of dialysis. We have made the Quran easy for you to understand and remember, remember the Quran means you need to memorize the Quran. You need to memorize, keep the portion as much as you can have the Quran memorized in your heart hamdulillah This in itself is a
miracle of the Quran, that if all the scriptures, all the scriptures, if we are the Christians to bring all the scripture if we are the the Jews, the every other person to bring all the scriptures to bring including the Quran and we destroy them for the sake of experiment for the sake of understanding and experiment. We know that the Quran is the only scripture that can be brought back in a moment. Why? Because there are no less than 10 million Muslims who by heart in the Quran from cover to cover.
This is a miracle itself. Allah subhanaw taala wants us to remember and he wants us to memorize the Guru's are on.
That's a duty that we have towards Koran, we have to practice the Quran. The Quran is not a theoretical book. It is a manual. You don't just read the manual, you implement the manual, you practice the manual. So Allah subhanaw taala sent this book as a guidance for our way of life so that we may practice the bureau score. Another duty that we have towards the blues for us is that we have to make sure that we promote the message of the Quran with the rest. This is the book that we have a responsibility that it should not be limited to us are amongst us how you became a Muslim when you get closer to Allah subhanaw taala.
That's how he guided you and we need to take this
A book of guidance to the rest of the people, firstly, to your family members, secondly, to your relatives, your friends and the rest of the world.
As an obligation as a duty towards the glorious Koran that we have is also that we may judge our lives by it. This is a criterion. This is a judging manual. We need to take guidance from it and judge all the issues of our life from the Quran. Also, we need to defend the Quran at the time it requires defending in the Quran is whenever anyone accusing the Quran that it is not the word of God, or it has concoctions or it has errors. It is our duty to stand and defend the Koran by presenting the truth of the Quran. These are the responsibilities that we have towards the Quran, which we have to fulfill as Muslims as believers.
Your brothers and sisters
we were talking about the greatest book of all, the last and final revelation, the last and final Testament, the final book of guidance,
the healing to the hearts a mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala an absolute preserved Book from Allah subhanaw taala the Judas Koran. You mentioned what it means to us. We mentioned how it is protected. We've mentioned that this is the book which has rights that we need to fulfill.
I would like to remind ourselves
by the ayah, in which Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Baqarah surah number two and number 185 shadowed Ramadan under the old Zilla field or on who the linas were by Janata mila houda. One for Ramadan was the month in which was sent down the Quran as a guidance for the whole of humanity and as a criterion to judge right from wrong wakita Juana and Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen
