In a study the Quran is not an optional thing. You know, some people say some people don't study. No, it is actually our duty
is studying the Quran is duty of the mankind, they need that without that they are in the era. Without that they are wrong. Without that the academy guided people, if people knew that this book is in need of every human being, without this book, people can't live on the face of doubt. This book is a comparison between us Our Lord, it is somebody to duty to obligation that we must study the book, we must understand the book, you know, duty, that what many people don't understand really many people come to the origin. Some people take the duty to appreciate the book I mentioned. Some people think there'll be a duty to have a ritual reading, they read the book, or for every single
letter, they get turned reverse. That was their duties. During the month of Ramadan. Many people do hotmart the Quran many many times an hour throughout the year. And they think when they read a letter of the Quran, they get 10 rewards. This is not why Quran has come. This is never is a function of the Quran. The function of the Quran that he mentioned in the beginning of the Quran is who that little bit up in the Quran has come to guide the people to teach them how to live on the face of the earth, how to get paradise, how to live I serve Allah, Allah. The purpose of the book is much deeper than that.
And see the problem rarely even reading when it comes in the Quran and the Sunnah. Most people don't understand what a reading means. That thing reading news, just moving the lips to read a very fast like Ramadan, people finish so many peranan travi and our toast is that some people take it you read it, bla bla bla bla bla bla bla, they're a bit nasty. You are protected from shaitan. from David from all the horrible things. Some people think if you read Apollo, how do you get a reward of 1/3 of the Quran, if you read, some people read a book or some people read, alas, verses drops to bacara and sutala marohn. Some people do Suzuka for Friday, there's so many readings going on. And people
have so many virtues for all these readings.
It takes a misunderstanding of the meaning of the reading.
Actually, reading is never used in any language for this meaning we have made way more sense than we think just read it. I left la meme, even if you don't understand I don't I don't think you get a one turn reverse for a left, turn reverse for LA Ted reverse for me. It never had been said the Prophet never said if you don't understand you get turned reverse. He never said if you don't, if you get turned reverse.
You know try to understand a means to an end the two different things that means are only important, if they can connect you to the end. If there's no end, there's no means there's no reward in that, for that,

If you travel and you learn dead for every step you get reward and for every money that you step you get reward cylinder is somebody think you know forever instead, I get so much reward to then I just keep walking, you fly from England to to Spain, and then go back then come back again and never attend any class.

meaning it when people read, they will understand and they will act upon the guidance, they will guide so far this effort they get rewarded by people who want to live reading, but their intention not to understanding intention not to act upon anything, then reading will have no reward. Try to understand it just means reading just means
