00:05:21--> 00:05:23

all throughout the course of human history,

00:05:24--> 00:05:30

Allah Jalla Jalla Allah has so kindly, mercifully generously

00:05:31--> 00:05:33

sent humanity,

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

pages of Revelation, why?

00:05:37--> 00:05:51

to different messengers in different parts of the world, during different times of history, all for the for the sole purpose of saving humanity and guiding them

00:05:52--> 00:05:56

and transferring them from the darkness of this life and its misery

00:05:57--> 00:06:03

to the light of this life, and the happiness of this world, and the one to come.

00:06:04--> 00:06:08

However, from all of these bits of revelation while he in Scripture,

00:06:09--> 00:06:16

none can be compared to in terms of their eloquence in terms of its comprehensiveness

00:06:17--> 00:06:23

than the book that Allah Almighty has chosen to gift us with. This is the book of Farrakhan Al Quran.

00:06:25--> 00:06:27

Allah Jalla Jalla Allah who said BA,

00:06:28--> 00:06:57

Na and Jana Alikum, Quran elite Ashoka bah Ha, we have not sent the Quran upon you Oh Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to cause you hardship. In the Kira, then Lima Yaksha. It is just a reminder for those who fear then Z Lam me mancala Colorado, it is a revelation from He who created the earth was somehow out in the hula and He who created the high heavens.

00:06:59--> 00:07:23

This is a Quran so profound in its meaning, so deep in its understanding and its messaging, that it has the capacity to transform and to convert and to ascend and to elevate anything that it makes contact with. And I give you four examples. This is the Quran number one,

00:07:25--> 00:07:37

that on more than one occasion, compelled the pagans, the kuffaar the disbelievers to prostrate despite them still being disbelievers at the time. This is the power of the Quran.

00:07:38--> 00:08:12

Allah Almighty He said what call a lady in a Cafaro the disbelievers would say to one another love the smell only had a Quran. Don't listen to the Quran. When Hopi and make sounds, when you hear it being recited, how come Lala contact removed so that you may prevail, they would fear the potential of becoming Muslim simply by allowing access of the Quran into the ears and subsequently into their hearts. So some of them like a profile of nominal dosi would cover and fill and stuff his ears with cotton to prevent the passage of the Quran into his ears.

00:08:13--> 00:08:17

In fact, on one occasion when our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was praying.

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

And I heard of him was Al Qaeda

00:08:22--> 00:09:02

on one evening, and the pagans were circumambulating around the Kaaba at a time when Makkah was still not Muslim. And there he was reciting beautiful passages from Surah, to najem chapter of the star. And I want you to imagine the beauty and the coherence of the Quran when it is recited from none other than the blessing mouth of our Prophet Muhammad Ali he salatu salam, and he recites When did you meet either how Malbun Lhasa he will come one of our one our young people and in our in who are in our few you Allama who shady do he is reciting an pagans they are listening in agitation and agony

00:09:04--> 00:09:17

until he arrives at the concluding passages from Surah to najem where Allah Almighty said in some profound verses, he said, as effective as if the Day of Judgment is drawing near.

00:09:18--> 00:09:23

Li Salah ha New Dawn Allah He care Shiva none other than Allah can avert it.

00:09:24--> 00:09:46

As I mean hurdle hottie eater Ajay moon, do you then wonder at this recital, Allah said, What have Hakuna Matata Khun and you laugh but you do not weep? We're only two Sammy doon whilst you waste your lives in amusement and play. First Julie, you are abou so Prostrate yourselves to Allah and worship here.

00:09:48--> 00:09:58

And so in compliance with the command of Allah, our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prostrates and here is what is amazing. None of the pagans who are listening

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

felt any control over their bodies rather they fell into frustration behind the Prophet Muhammad. Allah Allahu Allah us.

00:10:08--> 00:10:22

In fact, Abdullah Hebron Abbas and this is exactly HyperCard he said commenting on this incident he said suggest that maybe use Allah Allahu Allah He was seldom being nudged me was surgery there na Hooli Muslim Oh Now why should we call now? Well, Jean Nolan's

00:10:24--> 00:10:35

he said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam frustrated when he was reciting Surah to Nigeria, and so the Muslims and so the pagans and so did the jinn and so did mankind.

00:10:37--> 00:10:49

They raised their hands from frustration, they began to blame one another. What on earth did you do? They said, When on earth did you do they said he must have been which this this was not anything bewitching? This is the magisterium of the Quran. The majesty of

00:10:51--> 00:11:03

example number two, this is the Quran that caused a group of angels to reveal themselves for the eye of some companions because of the beauty of the Quran.

00:11:04--> 00:11:22

Al Bukhari generates that a companion by the name of OSA Robbie Allahu Anhu was once reciting Quran in his enclosure in the evening Salah and he was reciting audibly. All of a sudden he noticed that his horse began to jump up and down restlessly violently.

00:11:23--> 00:11:30

Next to the horse, however, was his son Yahia, whom he had left besides the horse, and he was afraid that the horse would trample upon himself.

00:11:32--> 00:11:53

He would stop his re citation, the horse would come down, he would continue his citation, the horse would begin to jump. So he wanted to know what was going on. Or say he didn't know who died. These are his words he said. For Kashi to and Tata Yahia. I was afraid that the horse was going to trample upon yah yah, my son, for come to LA ha. I made my way to the horse.

00:11:54--> 00:12:04

For another two, I looked for either Miss Lulu Tifo corrupt See, I noticed what seemed to be a canopy above me.

00:12:05--> 00:12:23

Fee her and third was Suraj there seem to be glowing lamps. Our project will gel we had Tana AHA and it was climbing into the canopy so that I may not see them glowing lights, lights creeping into the canopy so that I may not see it. What was going on?

00:12:24--> 00:12:29

He said, I went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I explained to him the experience. And he said to me,

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

telling me you kept reciting Abuja here.

00:12:34--> 00:12:46

He said, Yes, I kept reciting, but the horse was jumping. He said ekra Diarrhea tell me you kept reciting. He said I did but the horse was jumping. It was going to trample up on my son. So I stopped.

00:12:47--> 00:12:51

And then he explained to him the phenomenon he said till Cal Mala Iike those were the agents

00:12:53--> 00:12:59

till kill mela Iike to Canada Stan, you're like they weren't listening to your presentation. Well,

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

let us know what your aha nurse mad a steady roaming home and had you continued reciting? Everybody here would be able to see those angels they would have they would not have hidden from anyone.

00:13:14--> 00:13:33

This is the Quran and that is your second example. As for the third, this is the Quran that transformed a group of jinn who are simply passers by into reformers do add callers to Allah subhanaw taala with one instance of contact with the book of Allah to Allah Jolla.

00:13:34--> 00:13:39

And that is when our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was making his way to the city of archive.

00:13:40--> 00:13:46

And he stopped by for Salah Tonatiuh to pray in a place called why the inocula The Valley of Nakhla

00:13:47--> 00:14:13

and he began his re citation. And a group of jinn Allah said they were just another meaning Madame de la Shara. They were less than 10 in number they were passing by and they heard the citation of the Quran and they hush to one another. Listen, listen, they began to hush one another. And then Allah Almighty told the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what had just happened because he didn't see it.

00:14:15--> 00:14:58

Allah subhanaw taala said, we're at the slide off now la Cana for a minute Jean de yester me owner of Quran when we sent a group of Jin, who were less than 10 to listen to the Quran for Lana Haru, who when they arrived, call on suito. They said Listen, listen, for LM Kobe. And when the recite re citation ended, when no ILA called me him Mandarin, they went back to their nations as Warner's to Allah subhana wa taala. What did they say? They said ja Coleman here in Seminyak keytab. And on Zillow mean buddy Musa, the Jin as dua, they said to their communities, we have heard a recital

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

that has

00:15:00--> 00:15:48

Come down after a prophet Musa Musa dear can Lima de una de confirming what has come before it yeah howdy il Huck it guide to the truth we're elaborate in Musa team and guides to a straight path yeah commoner oh our people a G Buddha Allah respond to the color of Allah what I mean will be he and believe in Him young fibula comienzan will become Allah who will forgive some of your sins when Yujiro Caminada been any and he will save you from a painful torment La Ilaha illa Allah, a single moment of contact with the book of Allah transforms a group of jinn from me or passers by into duat activist reformers call us to Allah Jelena gelato that is your third and your fourth and final

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

example. This is the Quran

00:15:51--> 00:16:07

which hadn't been delivered to a mountain firm, huge, colossal would have caused it to crumble from the fear of Allah Allah Allah Allah. Allah Almighty said no and then the Quran Allah had we revealed this Quran upon a mountain

00:16:09--> 00:16:24

are you tell who Harsha motel Saudi minha Shatila Athena, you would have seen that mountain humbled, tearing apart because of the fear of Allah jilda that this is the majesty of the Quran but hamdulillah

00:16:40--> 00:16:44

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. Hawala Ali, he was a happy human Wallah.

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

What you just heard my dear brother, and my dear sister,

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

was the effect of the Quran

00:16:53--> 00:16:57

upon the disbelievers, the effect of the Quran,

00:16:58--> 00:17:06

upon the jinn, the effect of the Quran upon the angels the effect of the Quran upon stone

00:17:08--> 00:17:11

what then is the effect of the Quran upon my heart and yours?

00:17:13--> 00:17:17

Those of us who claim to be people of to hate monotheists and worshipers of

00:17:18--> 00:17:28

can it be that this is the effect of the Quran upon them including stone? Yet my heart doesn't humble Could it be that my heart has become harder than stone?

00:17:29--> 00:17:45

Yes, of course heart can according to the Quran become harder than stone throne Naka Sadhguru bukem embody Dalek Ijarah shed Dukkha sua Allah tells us in the Quran that hearts can become harder than stone.

00:17:46--> 00:18:09

But there may be another reason far more innocent, far more simple, why some of us are failing to interact with the book of Allah. It's not necessarily because we are always chronic sinners or disbelievers or hypocrites are people who hate Islam, there couldn't be a reason that is far simpler than all of this. And that is simply because

00:18:10--> 00:18:25

we are yet to understand what Allah Jalla Jalla who is saying without the involvement of a deficient human being to serve as a translator between us and the kalam the words of ALLAH SubhanA

00:18:26--> 00:18:32

it could be this. We are yet to understand what our man our merciful Lord is saying to us.

00:18:34--> 00:18:46

And that is why the Imam of the Morpha city, Mohammed Al Jazeera Tabari, he said in the introduction to his tafsir the following words and they will resonate. He said enlargeable I am amazed.

00:18:47--> 00:19:01

Me manga Quran Quran, are those who recite the Quran. While they are yet to hunt that Wheeler who but don't understand its meaning. Its interpretation can fail to be how can he derive any pleasure from nothing?

00:19:02--> 00:19:11

He wonders, how can a person who recites the book of Allah but failed to understand its meanings directly? How can he derive any enjoyment he cannot.

00:19:13--> 00:19:36

It is imperative My dear brother, my dear sister, those of us who claim that we have a book that is extraterrestrials from Allah, they direct word of Allah to Angel Jibreel and from Jibreel to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam an obligation upon every capable Muslim to familiarize himself herself with the word of Allah Almighty directly as he spoke.

00:19:38--> 00:19:42

Because Allah Almighty chose the Arabic language for a reason.

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

Allah Almighty said

00:19:47--> 00:19:57

in Nerja, Allahu Quran and Arabi and now under Kentucky we have made it an Arabic Quran so that you may understand.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

Allah Almighty said well

00:20:00--> 00:20:49

aka robbing, earning as if he heard the Quran Emil Cooley methylene under homeopathic karoun We have given humanity every type of example in this Quran so that they may remember Koran and Arabi and the Hydra DIY Gina Allah homea taco and it is an Arabic Quran without any deficiency so that they may become righteous. Allah Almighty He said, we're in hula tansy, Laura Bill al Amin. This Quran is the revelation from the Lord of the Worlds NAS Allah be here Rohan. I mean, the trustworthy spirit Gibreel has brought it down. Isla de Cali akuna minal Mandarin, upon your heart are Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so that you may be of the warners. Billy sand in Arabi In movie

00:20:50--> 00:20:52

in a clear, Arabic tongue.

00:20:55--> 00:21:07

Ibnu Faris, he said, commenting on this verse. Philomena has flagella general hula Robbie yet have been by Ernie rodina unnecessary era yogurt your car so euro to the one who will walk there how to do now.

00:21:08--> 00:21:20

He said the fact that Allah Almighty has described the Arabic language as moving clear, is a clear indication and evidence that every other language is inferior to it.

00:21:22--> 00:22:04

Allah Almighty has chosen the Arabic language for his final communication till the end of time for wisdom Hackman. And it is an obligation upon every capable Muslim and Muslim who has the ability and the resources to familiarize himself herself with the book of Allah janela gelato and that is why our predecessors they saw and they understood that any attempt to compromise the Arabic language in the hearts of their children and communities was an attempt on the Quran. And they understood that the moment you remove the Arabic language from eight people is the day you remove the Quran from them, even though they may recite it even though they may memorize it. In the RIA in reality, the

00:22:04--> 00:22:05

Quran is not there.

00:22:07--> 00:22:10

And that is why are they even look at

00:22:11--> 00:22:41

the companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say to Allah moolah, Ravi Khanna, Allah Munna, Haifaa Al Quran, learn the Arabic language, he said, just as you learn the memorization of the Quran. And you don't want me in Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu he would say for me to memorize a part of the Quran and forget it, that is dearer to me than to make a single mistake in the Arabic language. Understood. The Arabic language is the BB is the Metcons the entry to the Quran

00:22:42--> 00:23:06

Amuro remote meaning Oh Omar, when he saw young men who were practicing archery, and one of them missed the target. On Monday, he said to him, why did you miss the target? He's playing with him. Why did you miss the target? And the man said in Oman mortality mean oh leader of the believers, we are still learning but the way he said we are still learning in the Arabic language. There was a mistake in grammar.

00:23:07--> 00:23:08

Omar said to him Yara

00:23:10--> 00:23:25

wala Hila Hatha confini 70 km Asha duala Yamanaka, e configural Mukul he said the my brother the mistake that you just made in your you just made in your grammar. The mistake you just made in your grammar was more painful to my heart than the mistake you made in your archery

00:23:27--> 00:23:44

when Omar he sold to Persian men during the life circumambulating around the Canada and they were speaking Farsi Persian with one another instead of Arabic on my grabbed the shoulders of one of them, and he said to him, in bitterly Ihlara miyetti sebelah find a way to get to the Arabic language.

00:23:46--> 00:23:52

Our predecessors would discipline and punish their children if they made a single mistake in their grammar.

00:23:54--> 00:24:18

Amuro not meaning earlier on the Allahu Anhu would discipline al Hassan Al Hussein or the Allahu Allah if they made a mistake when speaking Arabic or Yuba City Yanni. When he would make a mistake in grammar, he would say a staff of Allah Allah forgive me as if he had committed a sin. Why? Because they understood any blemish in the Arabic language is the beginning of the removal of Quran from the life of a person,

00:24:19--> 00:24:26

though he may have it on his shelf, and he may recite it eloquently. The Arabic language My dear brother, my dear sister.

00:24:28--> 00:24:31

Back in the days we used to pride ourselves.

00:24:32--> 00:24:41

We do pride ourselves with the many translations of the Quran that we have today. And we say Alhamdulillah that the Quran is available in the languages of the world.

00:24:42--> 00:24:50

But as some of the commentators have said, if you look into it deeply, the reality of a translation is a sign of the weakness of a Muslim Ummah.

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

Because back in the days wherever Islam went, the Arabic language followed.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

The fact now that we need translation

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

In a deficient mortal, a fallible human being, to stand between me and my Lord to help me understand the words of my Lord,

00:25:10--> 00:25:33

I have lost the eloquence, I have lost the rhythm, I have lost the ages, I have lost the miraculous of Quran, when relying upon a man, a weak human being like me to stand as an interpreter between me and my Lord. And with all what you have achieved, my dear brothers, my dear sisters, in this blessed and beautiful country, the Arabic language is not something difficult for you.

00:25:35--> 00:25:53

The first step, however, is to understand that the Arabic language is not a matter of linguistics, law, it's a matter of Arcada. For you as a believer, it's a matter of theology. It's connected to your creed, your belief in Allah. And when you put it on that pedestal of importance, the Arabic language will come.

00:25:55--> 00:26:03

Soon commit a target for yourself. Within two years, say I will recite the Quran fluently, be eaten alive.

00:26:04--> 00:26:24

And within two years, I will understand every word of the Quran without relying on a translation committed, commit this target to yourself, you and your spouse, you and your colleague, you and your Islamic society to yours. And notice the moment you set the target for yourself. You will become the greatest of people in the eyes of Allah.

00:26:26--> 00:26:47

Because such as the nature of the Quran, as we said in the beginning, anything it touches it converts into greatness. Notice how the Quran was given to Angel Jibreel and I will conclude with this, and Gibreel has become the greatest of all angels. The Quran was given to our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he is the greatest of all men.

00:26:48--> 00:27:08

The Quran was delivered in the month of Ramadan, and Ramadan is the most noble of all months. The Quran was revealed in the night of other Laila to other Lena taka there is the greatest of all nights. The Quran was given to the owner of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is the greatest of all nations. The message is clear

00:27:10--> 00:27:42

in the thing that the book of Allah makes contact with, converts it and it makes it the greatest of all things in the home that the Quran finds. It becomes the greatest of homes. And the intention behind this hope by the evening Allah Itala is that you and I will make our hearts yet in other home of the Quran. And we hope that Allah will make us as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said how you will commend Dalai Lama Khurana where Allah Maha with the best of you are those who teach the Quran and those who learn it themselves.
