00:00:00--> 00:00:31

setup to be kidding AlLahi wa Salatu atheromatous lien probably shortly savini way acidity Emily Emily Sani of Gabor Kohli, my brothers and my sisters SNM rally from a lot of our cattle. So I hope you're all doing well in sha Allah, I am going to stall a little bit so that we have everyone on and give people the time to to log in inshallah. We mentioned today's

00:00:32--> 00:00:39

or the Friday night how to find, in fact, in the hot spot today. So it's been something that we've been announcing and letting the community members know

00:00:40--> 00:00:41

that we are doing

00:00:42--> 00:00:45

and we hope that more people will attend inshallah,

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

the purpose of doing that is not just to let people know, so that they can attend. In fact, my whole

00:00:54--> 00:01:03

reason for promoting promoting the Holocaust during the drama hookah was, first of all, to let community members know what's actually going on, because a lot of them don't know.

00:01:05--> 00:01:14

And with the way things are going with social media and stuff like that, some people are just focusing a little bit too much on other things, and not really things that they need to know.

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

So that's that's one thing, then.

00:01:19--> 00:02:04

The other reason as well is because I really, really have an interest in this topic, like I really feel that everyone should learn morals and etiquettes and values before seeking knowledge. And that's absolutely important because the knowledge that we gain is either going to be used for us or against us on the Day of Judgment. All right, we spoke about the Hadees today and our Jamaat flipbook that the thing that is the heaviest on the scale as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions his good deeds, right. So our good deeds is what will be heaviest on our scale, on the day of judgment, and we need to make sure that on the Day of Judgment, what we present to Allah subhanho

00:02:04--> 00:02:25

wa Taala is going to be good, and going to the right. And we hope that Allah subhana wa, tada will, you know, grant us the best of the Hereafter, and our scale will be heavy, on the side of goodness, and our, you know, bad deeds will not outweigh our good deeds.

00:02:26--> 00:02:30

So that's that we're going to jump right into our Chanukah, in fact,

00:02:31--> 00:03:15

is a book that I'm going to be using for myself to follow through if anyone wants to take notes. Feel free to take notes on your own if you want. And I do encourage the taking of notes, I always do encourage taking notes and that's something that I think every single student should do and it helps us to refresh our memory helps us to figure out what we're doing what we're studying. And it helps us to retain that knowledge and go back to it and revise it so that we can be fresh with it just like the revision of the Quran. Right when we revise the Quran we have to go back to revising it so that we can remember it long term. And it's just like the issue of having a beard that has been

00:03:15--> 00:03:34

stuck in a mask all day. Right? You need to go back to your brush and brush it and I don't have my brush so that's why my beard is like destroyed some brothers upon Allah has one brother I know whose beard is like up like this right? It comes down and curls up because it's always tucked under his mask. And it's like the challenges that we face nowadays. Pamela is like

00:03:35--> 00:03:36

what do we do?

00:03:37--> 00:03:41

How do we get it groomed again? hamdulillah it is what it is. All right.

00:03:43--> 00:04:26

So to begin with, like we said, we're going to be talking about etiquettes with regards to the Quran seeking knowledge but more particularly the Quran and then we can branch off into other things as time goes on inshallah, okay, so to begin Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah hijo verse number nine in nationalism vichara we're in Allah hoolahan Yvonne. So Allah subhana wa Jalla reminds us that the Quran Vicar this could earn the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala through the recitation of the Quran and hear this word Vica is pertaining to the Quran itself. So advocate is the Quran internationalization ethika in Allahu Allah have your own, Allah Subhana Allah is the one who

00:04:26--> 00:04:35

reveals and revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says we're in early will have his own end. It is a loss of headwater Adam who

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

protects it preserves it.

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

That's an important point for us to pause and try and digest a little bit. If a loss of habitat is the one who protects and preserves the quota and people ask themselves this question Why does Allah allow certain people to memorize the Quran when clearly they are not people who deserve to be

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

memorizing it, or they, they do not deserve to be people who retain that knowledge. Now, remember, we are not in a position to decide. And Allah subhana wa tada is the one who decides that's the first thing. Secondly, as I mentioned before, the plan can either be used against you or for you on the Day of Judgment, okay?

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

So

00:05:25--> 00:05:39

anyone who memorize the Quran or memorize parts of the Quran, who does not have good morals or values is not a good person, Allah subhana wa to Allah, you know, as believers were like, you know, that's wrong stuff that allow shame, yes, it is wrong, but

00:05:40--> 00:06:10

according to a law that is either going to be used for this person or against that person. And so it's in that person's best interest to retain the quota and to revise the quota and to go over their their recitation and memorization of the plan, and not to lose it. So this is actually a lesson for us in the afternoon as an advocate, we're in the hula, half the room, you know that a loss of habitat is the one who revealed the quota and down to us and

00:06:11--> 00:06:15

it is he who protects and preserves the Koran.

00:06:16--> 00:06:23

So this is a lesson for every single one of us that have lost some kind of weight and it doesn't need us to memorize the Quran.

00:06:24--> 00:06:31

Allah doesn't need us to memorize the Quran, don't think that Allah needs you and me to memorize the Quran. He doesn't.

00:06:32--> 00:07:04

A lot can protect the Quran and preserve the Quran in ways that we can't even comprehend. We don't even understand. Right? And so that's the first thing. Secondly, Allah Subhana Allah can choose anyone else to retain and preserve this Quran. He doesn't need us. So that's important. And you know, a lot of parents are probably watching and they're telling their children you see, you should memorize the Quran and you need to, you know, protect the Koran and preserve the Quran and you've been chosen. Yes, that's good, that's important. But at the same time,

00:07:06--> 00:07:33

advise our children and warn them and warn ourselves that you don't only memorize the plan, you need to retain it. And if you're not going to retain it, then it's it may be better to just learn a little bit, learn what you need for yourself. Learn what you need to get through this life. Learn what you need in order to earn and to buy and sell and live and do trade and whatnot. Right? Learn what you need to learn and don't

00:07:35--> 00:07:45

go all out in saying I'm going to memorize the Quran just to be known as a half of the Quran or a half of the Quran and then you forget it, we're going to talk about this in a little bit inshallah. Okay.

00:07:47--> 00:08:31

So, people who have been given the Quran, it says it's, it's an honor from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it's an honor that we need to be careful of, as in we need to be careful with I should say, we need to be protecting that honor. So if Allah Subhana Allah has blessed someone with a quota and know that you now have a responsibility never to do any injustice, against that quota, or towards the quota, because it will backfire against you. It will backfire against you. So these are just, you know, examples from the Quran that Allah Subhana Allah brings forth and we're just going to share them before we actually get into the specific topics to do with so this is just one example.

00:08:31--> 00:08:53

Allah subhana wa tada also says that the peroneal Quran when Academy in India it led him to do see here's the lesson theater, don't they ponder over the Quran? And had you know what Academy 90 Hadith Had it been revealed or written or brought from someone else other than Allah subhanho wa Taala no would you do fee if he left and Cafiero

00:08:56--> 00:08:59

Lomonosov one of my gym Fridays been like crazy

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

and I'm gonna keep yawning probably is like my 50th time yawning in the last two hours. So I had a coffee I had a coffee right before my head, so it should be good inshallah. But if you see me yawning, then remember when we gone we say, Ruby let him in a shape on his team.

00:09:18--> 00:09:57

Right? Because we want to ward shape on off, right the yawning and feeling sleepy is from shape on and shape bond is going to attack us even more now because we're learning the end he wants us to stop learning the Quran, right? Because that's what we're doing and he doesn't like it. And so he's gonna make me feel groggy, make me feel tired. That's normal. This is part of other this is part of learning, knowing and understanding that shape and is trying to get to me right now. chiffon wants to stop me from talking about the shaitaan wants to stop me from teaching about the shavon wants to stop us from gathering in order to learn the Quran but we're not going to let him so we'll say I

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

Ruby Latina chef ontology right

00:10:01--> 00:10:19

can also say a lot of above right a lot is greater and you know shape on of course once to outdo us and so, you know, that's important to praise Allah subhanho wa tada when we feel tired and not in good shape on do that to us okay

00:10:21--> 00:10:31

so sister Simon says shift Do you Lula during the day? You need rest Mashallah you're doing so much work now. I can't do a paleo though everyone on this drama

00:10:33--> 00:10:38

after drama when I got home it was just 45 minutes before I had to be back. There's no time for a doula

00:10:40--> 00:10:44

All right, let's move on. Allah subhanho data also says FMA

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

Mariela pulu bien.

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

Allah says, Don't you ponder over the Quran do they ponder over the Quran? The Quran? Allah puluh been up or have their hearts been sealed and it's like locked have their hearts been locked up? They're locked away. Right they can't unlock their their hearts in order to let them in.

00:11:12--> 00:11:16

On must have had with Allah also says what a teeny como

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

te.

00:11:20--> 00:11:35

And when you recite the poor and recited, have Tila in a slow manner as in beautifully slow in a way that can be understood. Right? Someone can comprehend the Quran when they're listening to your recitation.

00:11:37--> 00:11:51

The prophets of Allah usnm says with regards to learning the Quran he says there isn't a time that other people get together for debate him in boutella in one of the houses of the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala okay

00:11:54--> 00:12:09

it's Luna Kitab of wa and they read or recite from the book of Allah subhana wa tada why Adela Suna who baina home and they learn it and teach it and examine it and you know, try to understand the Quran amongst themselves.

00:12:10--> 00:12:22

In naza Allah tala he was Sakina except that Sakina tranquility comes down upon them. So now that we're not able to

00:12:24--> 00:12:28

yes Junaid you're asking is it live on YouTube? Yes it is live on YouTube as well.

00:12:29--> 00:12:57

So now that you're able to or were not able to come to the masjid and gathering the mustard we used to do that we used to come every Friday and learn the Quran and remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying this hadith and I'm not done the Hadeeth yet right so lengthy had is just a part of it. One sentence or one part of the of the Heidi's that I'm mentioning here, so there isn't a group of people that get together in one of the houses of the houses of Allah subhana wa tada aka in a Masjid

00:12:58--> 00:13:34

it's more Nikita la nd site and read from the Quran, right from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and they are going to examine and study the Quran amongst themselves in lenez at attalla Hema Sakina so when we're not able to actually gather in the mustard, but we're gathering here virtually, I honestly feel Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is bringing Sakina down upon every single one of us wherever we are, because we are going through a time of hardship and we're not able to gather in the mustard. Okay, we're not able to gather and the mustard is something that we're not allowed to do, right.

00:13:35--> 00:14:08

You know, there's restrictions on that right now we're only able to gather to pray for the sake of worship. So the place of worship can be used for the sake of worship. And we of course, as Muslims, we believe that everything we do is worship, our work is worship. You know, it's we're doing it for the sake of pleasing Allah, our going to school and educating ourselves is we consider it to be valid as well as long as we're doing it for the sake of pleasing lots of candidates Ireland, getting dressed, can be regarded right can be a type of worship, you know, pleasing the last panel who were to add in the way that we dress in the way that we speak in the way that we conduct ourselves and so

00:14:08--> 00:14:20

on and so forth. So all of these things can be considered Riba, however, because of masajid are closed. That's one thing. It doesn't mean that a loss of handling data is not going to bless us with Sakina.

00:14:21--> 00:14:45

Because he knows that we would have gathered here in the masjid. And there's also another Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that mentions about a person or people who for many years would be doing things for such a long time, right? They would be, you know, praying their sauna on time, or they would be you know, particularly with anything, particularly with the recitation record, in particular with anything that needs to be done.

00:14:47--> 00:14:54

From the Muslim from the believer, but in their old age, they reach a stage where they're no longer able to do it.

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

A loss of handling data continues to bless them with the rewards of what they used to do for many

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

Yours are for a long time, even though they're not doing those actions because it was something that made habitual to themselves. So I honestly feel that a loss of hanway dad is blessing all of us you know even though we're not able to gather in the mustard because we used to gather in the mustard and we will continue to gather the mustard we were able to but because of the restrictions put in place right now we're not able to gather so awesome handling data continues to shower His mercy upon us Why? Because we desire to be in the mustard. And I'm live streaming from the mustard but that's like totally different right? We can't just say because we're live streaming from the mustard that

00:15:34--> 00:16:00

we still get the reward but it lenez Allah Allah hemos Sakina so there is tranquility descending down upon you right now. This is one of the reasons why we should continuously want to learn the Quran. And every single Friday that we've learned the Quran sat down and attended the classes, you know and come to the mustard we should understand and accept that Allah is putting tranquility in my life right now.

00:16:01--> 00:16:06

Okay, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues, he says, When mushiya Toma

00:16:07--> 00:16:17

and awasum handle water Allah, you know, blesses us with, with with mercy as well. Right? You showers us with mercy

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

will have fed

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

Well, we'll have fat tumble melodica.

00:16:27--> 00:16:32

And the angels descendants around them was the killer who will love FEMA and

00:16:34--> 00:17:21

and Allah subhanho wa Taala brings us up, as in mentions us in the gatherings of whoever's gathering the loss of habitat of angels, right? And so we are mentioned in the gatherings of the angels. Can you imagine that? Have you ever thought of that? This is from the reasons why we should study the Quran, and why we should understand the importance of studying the Quran. Because we're being mentioned in the gatherings of the angels. And we're being surrounded by the angels and protected by the angels. You know, in another narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions the angels lower their wings upon us. Those who are learning the Quran, in the house of Allah subhana

00:17:21--> 00:18:04

wa, tada, the angels lower their wings upon us, just like a bird, you ever see a bird that flies over to the nest, and then it sits in the nest, right? And it has the eggs that are there, or the little chicks are born. And they go underneath the wings of the mother bird, right? And they feel safe, they feel protected, or like a child today a little baby, right? A little child comes running and gets into the arms of its mother, and even the father, right? And you know, feel safe feels feels comfort feels a sense of security. The angels do that to us when we are learning the Quran, and spending time with it. Now, we live at a time where we're stressed and we're going through lots

00:18:04--> 00:18:29

of hardship and we're doing you know, there's so much that's happening to us in our lives, that at times we don't even have the ability to slow down and try and think of what we're doing. Right? We don't have the ability to relax our mind or disconnect. And so when we go to the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah starts to disconnect the rest of the world from us. But you'll notice shake hands gonna play with you shutdowns gonna mess with you. She thought is gonna make you

00:18:35--> 00:19:15

yawn, right, I was having to shave photos Jean, she was gonna do that to us. shaitan is going to, you know, make us feel sleepy and make us feel groggy and make us think of other things and start to distract us, like the latest gadget that came out or, you know, I need to buy a new coffee machine or, you know, I need to get a new phone or I need to upgrade something on my on my computer or, you know, this new video game came out or you know, this person at school or someone I'm interested in, right, someone's not me, but you right because I'm married. My wife might be watching, right? disclaimer. So kind of like you know, someone a teenager right? Someone who's in their early 20s

00:19:16--> 00:19:36

thinking oh man, you know, that sister over there and that brother You know that they saw and they got to know shakedowns gonna distract you anytime you sitting with the chickens gonna try and catch you and pull you away from the Quran. And this is why we begin the recitation of the Quran with Ruby luggie mina shaytani.

00:19:40--> 00:19:45

We seek refuge in Allah from the shape on the cursed shape on right.

00:19:46--> 00:19:47

And so,

00:19:48--> 00:20:00

you know, the importance of sitting with a colon is that it brings that tranquility into our lives and eventually the more we do it, you'll notice that shavon no longer has that effect of

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

on your iPhone goes and tries to distract someone else because your connection to a law is too strong. Your connection with the court is too strong. It's too hard. It's too much work so it sounds like hard work. He thought it was a cool effect others that are easy to get, you know, it's all about the numbers. It's all about quantity, not about quality. And when we put that quality in shape and goes and looks for quantity somewhere else, okay? All of us apparently data also says clay will come into high level or never I'll never the best from amongst you are those who learn the Quran and teach it to others. Can you come mentality lemon core?

00:20:40--> 00:21:14

So, from amongst all of your friends, don't you want to be the coolest one? Don't you want to be the best one Don't you want to be the one that stands out not for the sake of being recognized by your friends, but for the sake of pleasing Allah subhanho data for the sake of being recognized by Allah for the sake of a lot of knowing and noticing and being told by the angels that you stand out from amongst your circle of friends. Not because you're caring not because you're loving not because you're devoted not because you have money, not because you you know do other things, but because

00:21:16--> 00:21:29

you learn the plan, and you teach it to others. And by default, that means learning the Quran and implementing it in our lives. Right? And then we'll have a knowledge and action we can't just you know do with one and not the other. Okay.

00:21:32--> 00:21:46

Also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions in his last Hadees that we'll take before we get into the specific topics. He says some Allahu Allahu wa sallam Allah He will be with me my Sephora amin Bara

00:21:49--> 00:22:06

well Lydia Cora Al Quran way attacked roofie wahoo Allah He shot con la who edge Iran. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says the one who is proficient in the recitation of the

00:22:07--> 00:22:16

right someone who's able to and has a nice, fluent, fluid, and beautiful recitation of record

00:22:17--> 00:23:10

will be with those who are honorable and obedient scribes, who are the obedient scribes, the angels, so those of us who are able to recite fluently and fluidly and beautifully, we will be in the gathering of the honorable and the obedient scribes, the angels of Allah subhana wa Tada. Now, how can we say that that's fair for those who are not able to recite, right? We're probably thinking to ourselves, yeah, but what about me? What about me? Like, I want to be able to be in that gathering too, right? And so what do we notice the Prophet sallallahu usnm says well Livia, Cora will, will let you earn way tat fee and as for the one who recites the color earn but finds it difficult? Do

00:23:10--> 00:23:19

you find it difficult to recite the poem? You ever find it you know, difficult upon yourself? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was talking about you right now. Right?

00:23:20--> 00:23:24

Or me, or any one of us who finds it difficult to to recite the Quran.

00:23:25--> 00:23:46

The one who reads the Quran and is struggling to get through it finds it difficult. Well, who are Li schuck while doing his or her best, or you're trying, you're not doing you're not doing a good job compared to someone else, but you're trying your best and you're doing as best as you can to recite the Quran.

00:23:48--> 00:23:51

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:23:52--> 00:23:54

live who agilon.

00:23:55--> 00:24:43

And for that person, they get double the reward, what was the reward? The Prophet sallallahu Ida usnm said, the one who is fluent or proficient in the recitation of the Quran will be with the honorable and obedient scribes, the angels, and the person who is struggling to recycle called earn, but is, you know, doing their best in trying to do so they get double the reward. So, a lot, I get that you get double the reward. So the person who is fluid and fluid and in the recitation of what has to do double the work than the person who is struggling, but the person who's struggling is by default, working much harder. So these are some of the reasons why we should spend some time with

00:24:43--> 00:24:43

the

00:24:44--> 00:24:47

right why it's important for us to learn.

00:24:48--> 00:24:52

Why do we need to describe why we have to be connected to the poor.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

And then in terms of dead or dead right morals, values,

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

connected to or linked to learning the recitation of a core earn and understanding the core earn and sitting with it, you know, we'll break it down into various different topics. Okay. The first one is to seek out or to,

00:25:18--> 00:25:21

to also examine our level of loss

00:25:23--> 00:25:26

when we are learning the Quran and reciting it

00:25:27--> 00:25:58

when you say that again to examine and understand or seek if loss so to look for Islam to try and be sincere in our recitation of the Quran, and our learning of the Quran, and doing this for the sake of pleasing Allah subhana wa what's at okay? And to also understand that while we are reciting the Quran or while we are trying to learn the Quran, that level of Islam

00:25:59--> 00:26:35

has to be there. It shouldn't be that Okay, I'm going to try and scout the Quran for the sake of Allah but those who are already doing it have to say wait a second, am I doing this for the sake of Allah? Or am I reciting this way because so and so person is here, this person is watching that person is listening or no? Why are you doing it? Are you doing it for the sake of Allah? Is it because Allah subhana wa, tada wants you to recite the Quran beautifully? Is it because you respect the Quran is the words of Allah and it deserves to be recited beautifully. Right? Does the Quran deserve to be recited beautifully? Absolutely, of course it does. Right? Are we all able or capable

00:26:35--> 00:26:36

to recite it beautifully?

00:26:38--> 00:26:47

We try our best Not everyone can everyone is different, right? Everyone has their strengths, their abilities, everyone has their hardships and difficulties as well. Okay.

00:26:49--> 00:26:52

So we need to look at our

00:26:53--> 00:27:14

sincerity, if plus be sincere with learning and recitation of a plan. Why? Because the urn, right, or the recitation of the Quran is a bird. And we seek nearness to Allah subhanho wa Taala through it. If you wanted to.

00:27:17--> 00:27:33

You wanted to be the class pet? Right? You wanted to be close to your teacher? Aren't you going to do things that your teacher likes? You want to be rewarded? from your parents? Aren't you going to do things that your parents like?

00:27:34--> 00:27:36

You want to be

00:27:39--> 00:28:24

elected as a politician? Aren't you going to do things that people like? Yeah, that's what people do, right? But when it comes to the, quote, an end with anything else, we first of all, do it for the sake of pleasing the loss of what's out of it. Even if we're looking for, you know, votes in an election, we do it for the sake of pleasing A lot of it through this election. And reaching a position if a position is you know, reached and achieved, then I will do justice to a loss of handling data in that position. Right, you see that. So everything that we do, we have to do for the sake of a lot. So recitation of the end is an act of worship, that we seek nearness to Allah

00:28:24--> 00:28:39

subhanho wa Taala through. And because it's an act of worship, there's two things that we need to focus on. two very important things that we need to focus on. The first one is sincerity. And the second one is consistency.

00:28:40--> 00:29:08

You cannot be a believer, for example, in the morning, and not a believer at night, you cannot say I'm Muslim to one person, and I'm not Muslim to another. You cannot say I love the Quran to one person and say it is useless to someone else when he has a villa. You need to be consistent with it. So you need to be sincere in your recitation of Quran and your learning of the Quran. But you also need to be

00:29:09--> 00:29:55

consistent in your learning of the quarter in your recitation and revision and memorization of the Quran, and in the implementation and teaching aspects of the Quran as well. Right? So those are two very key important conditions that are there or key principles I should say, that are needed from us when learning the Quran. Why? Because it's an act of worship that we seek nearness to Allah subhanho wa Taala in it. And it can't be that you're a believer at one time and you're not another you can't be someone who loves the Quran by day and hates it by night when he has a villa right. You got to be someone who's sincere with the plan, because it's a god and we're seeking you know, nearness to

00:29:55--> 00:29:58

Allah and consistent with the

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

So if last in the recitation of the poem

00:30:06--> 00:30:48

is, you know, through our doing it regularly reciting the Quran regularly, and we see a very famous Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It's a lengthy Hadith, I'll just take the middle part, the first part of the head, he talks about someone who died as a Shaheed. Right, someone who's a Shahid and, you know, it mentions their punishment. And then the second part is the person who learns the Quran and you know, recites the Quran, or knowledge of the dean and recycle cotton. And the third part is, and we're not going to mention that as well. We just mentioned the second part, like I said, the third part is a person who gives a lot in South Africa. Okay, so the second part,

00:30:49--> 00:31:00

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, What are you doing, and then the line where I lemahieu, Cora, Elko earn, so someone who learned knowledge and

00:31:01--> 00:31:06

taught that knowledge and recited the Quran

00:31:08--> 00:31:13

they will be brought forth before Allah subhana wa tada on the Day of Judgment. And

00:31:15--> 00:31:21

he knows exactly what he did and is known by a loss of handling data what that person did as well.

00:31:23--> 00:31:36

And so, they will be asked, What did you do with this knowledge that you had? What did you do with the end that you knew of right that you that you recite it? And the person will say, Well, I

00:31:37--> 00:31:51

learnt the knowledge and they taught knowledge, right, I gained knowledge, I was striving really hard in my life, to gain that knowledge, and to also teach that knowledge. And I recited the Quran for your sake.

00:31:52--> 00:32:28

Right? This person will say this to a loss of hand without it. And then it will be said to them, You light? Can you imagine that? Can you imagine standing before a loss of pen with Allah and Allah is questioning us? And he says, Why did you learn the Quran when you were 10 years old? And when you were four years old, or five years old? Why did you memorize the Quran and finish it before? 10? Why did you memorize it? And when you were 16 years old, why? You know, why did you do this? And a person says, Well, I did it to please you all I did is and then and then it'd be said, You're a liar. Imagine that. How would we feel like we'd be broken to pieces completely like thinking of it

00:32:28--> 00:32:30

as like, Oh, this is serious, right?

00:32:33--> 00:32:35

It'll be said You're a liar.

00:32:36--> 00:32:39

Rather, you learned this knowledge

00:32:40--> 00:32:54

to so that people can call you and their island so that people can call you a scholar and you recited the Quran, so that people can call you a body that you are someone who recites the Quran beautiful, beautifully.

00:32:55--> 00:33:29

And that was said that was done you achieve that you wanted basically what is being mentioned here in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is you wanted to be recognized as a scholar, you want it to be recognized as a god it as a half of it as someone who learned the Quran and recited it beautifully. You did and you got that people gave it to you people praised you people spoke about you people clicked like on all your, all your posts, people said beautiful things to you, and you continue to feed them what they wanted, because you wanted that from them.

00:33:30--> 00:33:31

And you got it.

00:33:33--> 00:33:34

You got what you wanted.

00:33:36--> 00:33:41

Now, you're getting what you get what you deserve, right. So a lot of times I will say

00:33:43--> 00:33:44

and that was said

00:33:45--> 00:33:46

and then

00:33:47--> 00:34:04

it will be ordered or the command will be given to take that person and to drag them on their face and throw them into Gemini basically drag them on their front and throw them into Johanna because they did not have sincerity.

00:34:05--> 00:34:06

In learning that

00:34:08--> 00:34:29

they were not sincere in it. They were doing it because wanted to be recognized by people and they wanted to be known and they wanted to, you know, get likes and you know, followed by millions and so on and so forth. So they did that and they got it. And the last time we chatted with them that isn't that scary? Of course it's scary, right? So we need to like Wake up and smell the coffee.

00:34:30--> 00:34:59

Wake up and smell the coffee. Wake up and understand that you know what? Look what en and this Deen of Allah Subhana Allah is not a money making tool. We do not go and study in universities or study with scholars and learn the Quran and beautify our recitation and stuff like that for the sake of making dollars and cents. In fact, a lot of people get most of the most of the people will get sense, but the people who seek out wealth they will find the means they will find a way to get really, really rich off the corner.

00:35:00--> 00:35:22

We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to have mercy upon us off. I mean, all right, let's move to the next part. So the first was, you know, to have that sincerity in seeking knowledge of the Quran and recitation of the Quran and to also be consistent with it. Okay. Second thing is and I'm a bill Quran

00:35:24--> 00:35:53

to act upon what is mentioned in the Quran, what we learn from the Quran is what I was talking about my Juma football today, like how do we expect to implement what we've learned of the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if we don't respect the knowledge itself, it has no value. It's like, someone comes and teaches me about physics. And if I'm not interested in physics, I might know this stuff. And I'm sitting there going, Yeah, it makes sense. I understand it, I really don't care. It's not going to change my life.

00:35:54--> 00:36:16

I have no respect for it. But if I respect it, and I say some kind of law, that's from Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has the ability to do this to split atoms and to do all of these things and to like, you know, mix certain things together, and you know, all these beautiful things in science and chemistry, physics and so on. That's from a law, right and if we respect it, Villa

00:36:17--> 00:36:32

villa. So Laravel bill Quran to act upon what we learn within and from the Quran. Okay. So, for example, the delille halali to

00:36:33--> 00:37:10

do the good things that are Helen that we learn have in the Quran, right things that we understand in the end that are permissible, we do them and we are encouraged to do them and we we do do them and to stay away from the things that are home so to make things hard on them as in to recognize it as how often something is not right for us. It's, you know, forbidden and not permissible. We stay away from it things that allow us to kindly that it has made it impermissible. We make it impermissible for us in our lives. Allah says that something is halal for us. We make it halal for us in our lives, right? Something is how long for us we make it How long is in that thing? Allah has

00:37:10--> 00:37:28

said, for example, it's how long to consume something then I will not consume it because it is how long so I've made it how long for myself as well. And you'll notice you know, when you're sitting here thinking listening to me, you're probably thinking like yeah, we understand that but there are some people who say, I know I'm supposed to pray for that but I don't

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

write

00:37:31--> 00:38:17

I know I'm supposed to eat halal food, but I don't. So that is not making Hillel Hillel for us. That's making how I'm Helen for us and making halal haram for us because the food that's out there, we reject it and go and get something that's how I'm and eat that instead. So we're actually doing two wrongs. Right? We are eating the home food or consuming something hot or doing something that's hot on and because we're doing that we're leaving off the thing that's highlighted for us and therefore we're rejecting the hello and approving of the home. And that's the opposite to be doing. The whatever I must have always had teaches us in the Quran, that's Helen it's Helen for us don't

00:38:17--> 00:38:19

make it home. Yeah you

00:38:21--> 00:38:32

Allah subhana wa tada says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Quran, Lima to hardily mama hen Lama who lack right of course is in a different context but still, why do you make something

00:38:33--> 00:39:19

haram upon yourself that Allah subhana wa that is made heaven for you? You see that that's important to understand. Right? We can get into the the examples of food we can get into examples of clothing we can get into examples of speech we can get into examples of of business and buying and selling and trade and purchasing homes and purchasing cars and purchasing things and items and investing in things halal or haram and stuff like that. Like are we doing what's right according to a law are we doing what's wrong according to a bot so I will earn a living by the Quran implementing what we learn of the Quran Hillel what's mentioned is halal in the Quran we make it happen for us in our

00:39:19--> 00:39:26

lives what's mentioned it's how long in the Quran we make it how long for us in our lives, we will move our internet and

00:39:27--> 00:40:00

if something is you know, not permitted then we stop ourselves from it we stay away from it. Right? And whatever we've been ordered to do then we we force ourselves to do we go and we do it right we carry ourselves forward to go and do I don't you know saying I force myself to do it is a little bit weird, but we we conduct ourselves in that way that we are going to go and do it Allah Subhana Allah tells me I need to perform a hygiene I'm able to do it I go and perform that hedge. Right Allah subhana wa tada tells me it's time you know when when the time for Salah begins or entry?

00:40:00--> 00:40:10

Make sure you pray your cell that we go and we do that so not right Allah has made it such that you know Salah is a command upon us we have to go and pray time for prayer pray,

00:40:12--> 00:40:18

the time of Allah enters prayer prayer. If we reject it, we're going against the content of Allah Subhana return

00:40:20--> 00:40:26

and to also live by the rulings that Allah subhana wa tada has revealed within the

00:40:28--> 00:40:34

so for example, you know, whew, or inheritance or family relation,

00:40:35--> 00:40:53

you know, marriage, divorce mahoe, stuff like that, whatever things are mentioned in the Quran of, you know, principles in our Deen the things that we're supposed to do, then we learn from them in the Quran, and we take them and implement them in our lives.

00:40:54--> 00:40:56

We're gonna end there in shallow data.

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

And that's because

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

it's been 45 minutes. And we'll stop there inshallah. So I'll just make a note here. And I see see em September 25.

00:41:15--> 00:41:18

And in Sha, Allah Tada, we will continue from here next week,

00:41:19--> 00:41:57

and continue to learn about the etiquettes of the program and how to learn this Quran and how to respect the Quran and how to respect you know, we didn't even get into the different habits or examples from it, we didn't get into our our personal conduct with the product, and we didn't get into Whoo, we didn't get into clothing. And what I want you to do when we're learning all of this is every single week, let go of what you learned in the past, right? If there's things that you learned in the past, or you're told in the past, and I want you to slowly learn to let go of certain things that we thought we need to do, but don't need to do. And I also want you to adapt to and implement

00:41:57--> 00:42:35

the things that we learn we're supposed to do, but maybe never did in the past. So I want there to be some sort of a transition in our lives where we're taking from the poor, and we're giving, you know, giving up the things that we are not supposed to be doing or are not from the summit of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sending them and there'll be a lot of things right, there'll be a lot of things over time. So hamdulillah I think that was a good session, let me know in the comment section how you felt about today's class, and we'll keep it open for a few more minutes. inshallah, if you want to comment or say anything, give some advice, or, you know, share something that you

00:42:35--> 00:43:15

learned, feel free to do that in sha Allah, the more that you post in the comments, the more the videos actually get seen by other people out there, and they will benefit from your viewing of the videos and your sharing of the videos as well. And so that's the purpose of remember we're greedy, in not wanting likes, we're greedy and wanting to please a loss of how do we to add it in a way to please Allah using the technology that we have, is by simply trying to share this for the benefit of someone else, so that we get the rewards as well. So if you share the video with others, or you link up someone else to our classes, then you will share in the rewards of their benefits as well. So we

00:43:15--> 00:43:22

ask Allah subhanho data to make that easy? Yes, just the same way you have a question, please feel free to ask. And again, if I don't know the answer, I'm not going to answer it.

00:43:24--> 00:43:50

People always come and ask me a question. Or come and ask me before asking their questions and say, Can I ask you a question? And they usually say, is it long or short? I say it's short. And I always tell them short questions usually have long answers. And then they'll be like, No, it's just one question like, Okay, fine. One question. No problem. But you already asked me a question like what do you need? So you asked me if you can ask me a question. And I answered you and I said, Yes, that's your one question.

00:43:51--> 00:43:52

I'm vanilla.

00:43:53--> 00:43:59

Allow you back feet Junaid just like a little shaman for attending and look forward to seeing you soon in sha Allah, Allah you gotta take

00:44:03--> 00:44:07

enough glad people were able to follow

00:44:08--> 00:44:16

you know, one of the things that I like doing is actually teaching more in depth knowledge and I find that we've never really given that priority in many of them massage it

00:44:17--> 00:44:58

in the GTA and probably across the world, a lot of our massages, we just give like regular classes that just make us feel spiritually motivated and uplifted or make us feel good for the day and then we move on, but we need to go more in depth and that's that's my plan inshallah. So this was one of the two things that I actually plan on doing was starting to teach a little bit more. And the second thing is to start teaching the basics of our Deen which is to start with teaching about Allah subhanho wa Taala teaching about the oneness of loss penalty. If I ask you this question, Where is a lot and I've told you this before in the community, I've had students tell me and this is going back

00:44:58--> 00:45:00

many years like 2003 2000

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

For 2005 I've had students tell me, I was in Pakistan.

00:45:08--> 00:45:11

Our children don't know about our last panel which I had. Okay.

00:45:16--> 00:45:55

Someone asked me, but I don't know. That's why I'm asking you to the angels, right the deeds of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as we know they write all our deeds. Yes, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also a head, Angel on his right shoulder and left shoulder, just like we do. Okay, so we have the angels with us all the time, that are writing for us. Our good deeds and bad deeds is why when we end Allah, and I've taught you this before, this is one thing I just finished speaking to one of our student, two of our students right before this session, that's why I was like two minutes late. Their mother was here in the masjid. And she asked me a question. And the

00:45:55--> 00:46:32

mother was ever with the with the children and probably even watching right now, they're always watching shala they're very, very active in our community, the entire family. And so the mother or father in the two children are there. And they asked me a question. And I said, the answer to this question is with your children, I already taught them the answer to this, they know it, they're from our youth program. And so I gave them a little hint. And right away they were like, Oh, yes, because of this, this and that. And so it was laid out so I What was I talking about before? Yes, I was saying the angels to the right and left right on our shoulders when we finish our saga and we say a

00:46:32--> 00:46:44

set mRNA Kumara Metallo a center where na Kumara LA to LA we're giving set out to the right into the left why not to announce to others that I'm on a

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

lot of people on the right side of the South a center run a

00:46:53--> 00:47:04

lot of people on the left side of the stuff that's not what it's for this scenario is sent empty the angel on your right side and send them to the angel on your left side.

00:47:05--> 00:47:15

We're giving Sam to those angels right and they're writing it down the Send em was given to us and so that's you know a beautiful thing there and yes the Prophet so long as

00:47:17--> 00:47:38

you're planning to start a class have to see it in future for brothers for brothers. I was doing it to see a class for everyone every single Friday for over a year now over a year and a half, almost two years now about a year about a year and we're doing the profits of a lot before that so we'll go back to to see after we learned a little bit about the etiquette of inshallah Tada.

00:47:41--> 00:47:54

Do prophets have Jin's to beside the angels, while the profits along with some of them did and his he gave out his angels and his angel accepted his sorry his Jin accepted Islam? Okay.

00:47:55--> 00:48:12

Greetings from London, Santa Monica, from London follow you back? Is that London, Ontario or London, England? Hopefully it's London, England, where it's dark and gloomy. But if you're in England, it's kind of late. I don't know why you're awake. So it's probably London, Ontario.

00:48:13--> 00:48:34

My question is playing video give you bad deeds, or is it allowed to play for entertainment? Okay, so the video games thing is something that, you know, parents have had a lot have to really discuss with their children. This is a second time today someone's asking me about playing video games.

00:48:36--> 00:48:46

Playing video games, are they How long? Someone asked me this. A youth came and asked me right before Juma football today, is it how long for me to play my video games? And I was like,

00:48:47--> 00:48:48

how

00:48:49--> 00:48:56

do you have any Islamic evidence and proof to make it How long? Like Well, my my parents say that it's hot on baby.

00:48:58--> 00:49:03

What's the proof islamically that it's hot on now. Does that mean that

00:49:05--> 00:49:15

we can't prove that something is hot. Um, so it's not good for us? No, not at all. If if the video games are portraying something or showing something that

00:49:16--> 00:49:32

is not their story, something that is that is not good and is bad, and will desensitize us to something for example, the game is like filled with shooting and stuff like that, you know, like the games that are out there.

00:49:33--> 00:49:42

I honestly discourage that. I don't encourage it. Regardless of whether scholars say, you know what, something is permissible. Yes, something's permissible, but just because something's permissible doesn't mean it's good.

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

Okay, just because something's permissible, doesn't mean that it is good. Like sugar is permissible, but a lot of it is not good. Okay. Krispy Kreme Doughnuts are permissible and men. You can eat a whole dozen but that's not good. Right?

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

I'm always like, yeah, you just finished telling yourself your own advice. Don't eat a whole dozen. That's why I only eat six dozen. And then six hours later, sorry, I'll need six doughnuts, half a dozen then a few hours later if the other half dozen, right. So there are certain things that may be permissible islamically but that doesn't mean that they are good for us in the long run, as in the loss of handling data wants us to implement sn in our lives and to do things that are buggy, and good for us. Right. So I know you are going to be like yeah, but it's hard, man. We want to play video games. It's fine. Play racing game. play Mario play, I don't know, please something good. Why

00:50:39--> 00:50:42

does it have to be shooting? Why does it have to be something that

00:50:43--> 00:50:55

makes you desensitized to respecting the human being in the sanctity? the holiness of the human being? That's important. So

00:50:57--> 00:51:07

it's a long discussion, the video games thing is a really really, really really long discussion. But the best is stay away from things that are not good. Okay.

00:51:09--> 00:51:09

How about that?

00:51:11--> 00:51:14

Alright, I think that's pretty much it.

00:51:17--> 00:51:33

is the most challenging thing to accomplish no doubt being sincere is hard. Finding that sincerity in especially in the Quran. Look, the word. The Hadith that we mentioned is from the first three types of people that will be thrown in Jannah

00:51:34--> 00:51:35

Okay,

00:51:36--> 00:51:54

send them where it come from London England, I see your messages they're coming through I know you have to go because it's time for fudge have gladly come take care of does have a level heightened for you know, joining us and hopefully you encourage more people in London who are awakened middle of the night before fudger to attend the class every Friday inshallah.

00:51:56--> 00:52:07

So one of the hardest things to do is to be sincere in the Quran to be sincere in you know, learning the Quran, but remember, if you love it for the sake of a law

00:52:09--> 00:52:11

and find your way with VAT,

00:52:13--> 00:52:44

right? Love the Quran for the sake of Allah know that I'm reciting the words of a law. Right? These are the words of Allah subhana wa Tada, I'm reciting them. That's amazing to be able to be given that gift from Allah to be chosen from amongst the billions of people who live on earth to be able to recite the Quran, Allahu Akbar, that's amazing. There are other people. And I'm not saying that people who are not able to pronounce it properly. I'm talking about people who reject the quota

00:52:45--> 00:52:49

is 100 a lot. We're able to recite it even if there is that,

00:52:50--> 00:53:17

you know, struggle in in the recitation of the plan. I gotta go. I need to open the door for the brothers to come in brothers and sisters coming for selected judges from a local Hayden for attending. We're about a cup of coffee come and look forward to seeing you on Sunday for our fifth class. And then next Friday as well. Does aquilo Hayden some of wahoo cinema robotica Vina Mohammed vida and here sofiero Salim said Mr. La cumbre de la he will work
