Bishop Lee suddenly were steadily under the orchidectomy lissoni of gobble Kohli, my brothers and my sisters, a set Mr Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. So we're here once again, it's Friday night and hamdulillah we are, you know, continuing on our journey of learning about the Quran and the etiquettes of the Quran and how to deal with it. And it is, you know, the end of a long day.
And despite that, we will continue to persevere continue to push through, continue to learn about the deen of Allah subhanho data, and learn how we can connect with a lot through the Quran. Of course, we continue on our chapters and journey through the different topics that we've covered so far. But tonight, we're going to be moving on into a different section of our class. And we're not focusing so much on the recitation and how to recite and the rewards of reciting like we took last week, but today we're gonna be focusing on
man on the wrong page. Today we're gonna be focusing on
the importance of reading the entire quote on the importance of finishing the recitation of the Quran not just focusing on reciting the Quran
in terms of our favorite parts, or the part that we've memorized and just focusing on that alone, but but through our recitation of the Quran should be the entire Quran right? What I mean by that is sometimes a person may have memorized 10, Joseph n. So they memorize maybe 10, to bottos, pretend just 10
parts of the Quran
and they only will revise those 10 parts of the Quran because that's all the time that they have, right? So they'll dedicate their time to, you know, these 10 different parts of the plan. However, what's encouraged from us as well as to read through the entire point. Now we see that some of the people of the past including this a habit of the Align home and then the tabbing, and so on and so forth, those that came in the early stages of Islam, we noticed that many of them were cited a lot of the Quran right now, when we think about it, a lot of the time people think that you know, the people that are the past they not only lived near the profits in the long run, I know some of his
time, but maybe they met him and they were this habit of companions as well. Or sometimes in our minds when we think of them traditionally, we think that these were people who lived with the profits in the long run them therefore they may have memorized the entire Quran or they must have memorized the entire point. And therefore they're like super humans and amazing people that we never aspire to be like or we could never reach their sort of level. Now, no doubt we can never be considered a Sahabi right or somehow be one that has met and lived with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam what I mean by lift with his lift at the time of and met him and interacted with him and
heard from him and so on and so forth.
And of course, you know, Allah subhana wa winter shows us through the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that this hub are the best people right? Come to high romantic aqui gentlemen, stay with us today 10
below and we also see a loss of bandwidth Allah
no sorry, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying
Claybrook, Rodney hydroquinone, cognito, Medina, Medina, you don't have home, right indicating, and of course, you know, there's discussion on on the authenticity or the strength of the Hadees. But, you know, the best of people being at the earlier stages of time, and then
the people that came after that, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned us to the habit of the unknown. So he mentioned us in a way that, you know, we are the people who believed in him without ever seeing him, and especially reward for us in this habit of the alarm. And were amazed by that, right that people who never met the prophets of Allah, it was someone who believe in him as the Messenger of Allah, someone was trying to give us a lump. And
at that, you know, we have a special reward. Now,
just because we live at a later point in time, doesn't mean that we would not gain certain rewards from a loss of haddaway data for our efforts in his Deen. And of course, when we look at reciting the Quran, we know that we get a certain amount of reward for you know, the letters that we recite the amount of letters multiplied by 10 and whatnot, and then the effort that's put in and then you know, the time that it put towards the recitation of the Quran, and also the struggle, right, we learned about the person way into data fi right the person who is going through hardship and difficulty in pronouncing the button or they have a hard time reading
Citing the court and it's very challenging for the very difficult for them, their reward is that adrenaline that person gets double the reward. But the people at the early stages would recite the urn
And of course, even now, we recite the Quran entirely. But you notice that in some cultures, people recite the entire Quran only when someone passes away, and that should not be done. What we mean by that is, why are we waiting only for someone to pass away in order for us to go and recite the Quran? Shouldn't we be reciting the Quran? all the time? Shouldn't it be a regular thing? Shouldn't we be constant in or I should say consistent in our recitation of the Quran constantly coming back to it every single day? Of course, we should. Now if you look back, like I mentioned earlier, towards the early stages, right, the Sahaba will do
the tab your own as well, those that right after the Sahaba.
Some of them used to finish the entire recitation of the Quran in two months. Okay, so remember, no, we're talking a lot. He mentioned that in the earlier stages, there were people that would recite the Quran and finish it fairly frequently. Those that finished it in two months, those that finished it in one month, those that finished it in 10 nights, those that finished it in seven nights.
And then he says, What Will Ferrell x 13. And that was the majority of what people used to do, right? The majority of people would finish the Quran in seven nights in seven nights or seven days, right? So within a week, the majority of the Muslims in the early stages used to finish the recitation of the Quran, the entire recitation of the Quran in a week.
Which means we should be finishing the quarter and now you go on vacation and stuff like that throughout the year. So you take some time off if you miss a few days here and there, right? 50 times a year, 50 times a year. That's a lot. Right. Some of us don't finish the earn 50 times a lifetime in our lives. So that goes to show us our level of
connection to the court and like the people of the past we're really connected to the earth and the people today we're like, yeah, we believe in the Quran and Hamas we put on the shelf and we leave it there. Right. But the people of the past would finish the call and sometimes and the majority of people the majority of the Muslims as a member know he mentions finishing it once every seven days.
That's hard. That's hard. That's reciting a few Jews every single day. Okay, about forges of an every single day.
So it's difficult, in fact, a little bit more than four inches of
every single day.
And we look at the story of Abdullah
about the love Martin
is a famous you know story, where
he says Connolly Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me, it cannot undergo an official. So he tells me all the time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells him recite the Quran in one month as in finished the Quran every single month.
So he tells the prophets on one where I lead with something that I feel that I have the ability to do more, you know, I feel that I can do more than just finishing the plan once a month. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responds to him
or until he tells him then recite the Quran in seven days. And don't exceed that as in don't recite it more than once every seven days. Okay, so that's a famous you know, narration that we learned from our beloved
Viola and Houma how
the prophets long it was seldom advised the Sahaba to recite the Quran once every month, which means one Jews every single day, one see Baba every single day, one part of the Quran every single day. There are 30 parts in it, right? There's 114 chapters, but there's 30 parts 30 inches 30 sabattus. So we should finish the recitation of the Quran once every 30 days. Therefore, one does every month, right?
And then he says, Remember, he tells the prophets all along, I need to send them but I find it easy like I have more energy, I could do more than just one juice a day. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advises him to finish the Koran once every seven days. So once a week, right? And not to increase in that now.
This Hadith specifically, and I specifically mentioned that I would tell you it is narrated by a meme of hottie Humala, as in sorry, reported by an honorable hottie, but I have a whole lot in His sight. All right, so it's an authentic hadith.
We see another example of Abdullah villamartin as well. He says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me it cannot undergo an official recite the Quran in a month. Okay so once a month finished the Quran
and then again he tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but I have more energy I have more I have more ability to recite than just, you know, once every month, one does every day. So he then responds the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then tells him It caught up who fee said Athan then finish the Quran every three days, right, recite it in three days. That is a narration that mentions less than a week, right finish the Quran once every three days now, this Hadeeth is reported by Abu Dawood
and Chef Bernier from the law says that is a haston psyche Hadeeth fine. The grieving of it shows us that yes, these are narrations that were mentioned by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam teaching us the amount of times that we should finish the Koran in a year, so once every month, and he tells I'm delighted I'm also someone who has the ability to do more. They should recite the plan as much as they can and finish the course earn no more than once every week. But then in the other narration of Abdullayev in our model of the Alon well the prophet SAW longer it He will send them says that he can finish the whole end once every three days. Okay once every three days.
Um, we see in other examples though, from other Sahaba other companions for example, remember the lover and a novel can extend Fie Laila earthman. Even I found on the Alomar, I'm used to sometimes finished the entire recitation of the Quran in one night, in one night. One night, what does that mean?
If your psychic will earn at a decent pace, okay, um, it should take you let's say 20 minutes.
Okay, 30 minutes to finish a juice, right 30 minutes to finish the juice.
On average, though, someone who has memorized and if they're reading it at a decent pace, constantly moving through it, the finish maybe a page a minute, and a page a minute, which means one does every 20 minutes, three does every hour.
Okay, so three jobs every hour, multiply that by 10, and you get 30. Right 30 juice. So it technically would take someone who's reading one page, every minute concern constantly, it would take them 10 hours to finish the book. And now on average, it takes about 15 to 20 hours of recitation. Usually when I'm sitting on a flight going to Australia I put my earphones in and I listened to the entire course and all the way there because it's 22 hour flight. So I'll start to put on a you know with whatever reciter and listening to from sudo to Fatiha until sort of the nurse and I'll finish that quote and listening to it on the way to Australia, right? So approximately give
or take about 20 hours, the average reciter will read through the entire Koran. Now how does earthman know the lower I'm finished the entire recitation of the Quran in one night. So what's meant in a Laila is that he would start his recitation throughout the day and finish it at night. Okay, so finish the quarter and throughout the night remember they would they would bring the Quran to life at night as in their their nights would be filled with the recitation of the Quran.
Sadly, this is something that the majority of us don't really do. Right.
So we of course are encouraged to try and finish the call and and recite the Quran as much as possible. Okay.
Now we look at other things too, though, when we're thinking of reciting the Quran at such a quick pace a person says, but do I have the ability to think of the corner ponder over it right? So there are times when you're going to park and ponder over the verses that you're reading. But the point there is that you don't fill your day with things that are unneeded. Remember at the time of the habit of the LMR at home, they didn't have the distraction of phones and internet and social media and stuff like that that you and I have but they had other things they were going through. So for example, if you want to go use
the you want to go use the bathroom, simple example. You want to go use the bathroom, you get up you take like 10 steps, you're in your bathroom, you relieve yourself, you wash your hands, you can even make will do and dry your hands and everything you come out within like a couple of minutes you're done. for them. It was like you walk as far as the eye can see right
In walking the distance until people can't really see you clearly anymore, and then you squat down, you use the bathroom out there, and then you walk all the way back. And you might have to go and fetch some water to bring with you before you go, right. So it might take some time. So there were things that took time in their day as well. let's toss all of that aside, though.
Take all of it just right, toss it.
Take your phone, and look at how much time you spend looking at your phone in the day.
And every single one of us will probably feel really bad at the end of trying to do this, right. myself included,
the amount of time in fact, I probably look at my phone more than all of you. Now Forgive me for that. And I Oh, my wife always says yeah, your your excuses, that you're busy with work and stuff bits work related, but you know, that's okay. She's entitled to saying that,
um, you know,
the average time that we spend on our phones, I was listening to a,
an E book last week, that was talking about productivity,
using your time wisely. And the author mentioned a list, right? of countries, where the average person spends over six or six and a half hours per day,
looking at a screen, for the purpose of entertainment, not for the purpose of work, not for the purpose of their job, or it's a business or something like that, no, six and a half hours per day, the majority of people in those countries, and it was a pretty interesting list of countries, right? The majority of people spend six and a half hours per day, in those countries, looking at a screen for the purpose of entertainment. Which means if we were to take away that entertainment, or that screen, and put six and a half hours every single day into looking at the Quran and reciting the Quran, or memorizing the Quran, don't you think that in six and a half hours of dedicating your time
every single day to the Quran, that you can memorize more than one page a day, maybe even more than two pages a day, maybe even more than three pages a day eventually, right? Because at the beginning is going to be hard, right? But let's just break it down. So one to two pages every single day, the average person would be able to do that if they put in six and a half hours of sitting in reciting the earth, which means we can have an entire oma of her father of the Quran, who ditch as in, throw away their time on social media, and dedicate their time to look
for a year.
That's really, really interesting really makes you think, right, because if you go right now and you check your phones, and you see how much screen time you've been on, not for work or anything else, just just check the screen time in general. And then ask yourself, could I sort of strategically change the timing that I use my phone or do certain things at certain times? You know, or whether it's your iPad or your laptop or you know, a screen at home where you just Netflix thing, or YouTubing or whatever it is that you're doing? Right.
Imagine the time that we could spend with the right,
man last time to help us. I think an important point here when discussing completing the earn through our recitation is that there's no specific drop that has been mentioned by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as the doula to be recited when a person finishes the recitation of the plan, okay. There are certain drives that come up in you know, history where scholars will recite these Dorough, you'll find certain Dorough where people put together different drives the prophets in a longer anyway some of them are drive that are found in the sun none or even in in the lives of the habit of the alarm home, the put them together and make like a draft ultimate report, but
there's no specific URL that a person needs to make when they finish the recitation of the goal.
that's clear. We'll move on and ChildLine.
The last thing that we'll take for today is the importance of
stopping ourselves from reciting the Quran when we feel tired, so if a person is starting to feel tired or sleepy, should they continue in the recitation of the Quran now I know all of us will be like, how long this is my excuse? Don't you know that there's a headache that allows me to stop reading the Quran when I feel tired? Yes. Right. That's going to be
The excuse that every single one of us is going to be using for the next little while, right? So it is actually from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to not recite, not continue reciting the Quran. If we are feeling sleepy, let's look at this. But what about the alarm and he mentions in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam alum.
He says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, either karma had to come in a lay, when any one of you stands up for the night prayer, as in the MLA or to add to the prayer, right? When any one of us gets up to pray at night,
and finds it difficult to recite the Quran accurately.
And he is unaware of what he is reciting. He should go back to sleep.
So we're here with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says right he says if any one of you gets up for dadgad at night, right? So dad Jedi be nephin attend LEC
wake up in the night and pray Allah to Allah Subhana Allah. Now here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying if anyone of you gets up at night to pray, and you find it difficult to recite the Quran accurately as in your life,
right stumbling or mumbling in your recitation,
and you are unaware of what you're reciting, then you should go back to sleep.
Let's look at another headache of the profits on a lot of us on them. This one is narrated by Aisha about the logo and the mother of the believers. Right.
She says the prophets on a longer I think he was seldom said
when one of you dozes off while performing Sala so you're praying in your leg feeling super sleepy right
now like feeling that tiredness Okay, when one of you dozes off while performing sauna, he should lie down until his drowsiness has gone away from him.
When one of you perform sada while dozing, while feeling super sleepy while drowsy,
he may abuse himself instead of seeking pardoning instead of seeking forgiveness due to the drowsiness so let me explain. She says when one of us gets up to pray at night, now this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was saying this right she's narrating from the prophets and a lot of it was send them when one of you dozes off while praying sauna while standing and praying and you're feeling super sleepy and you're falling asleep, right? He should lie down until his drowsiness has gone away from him. And when one of you performs on a while drowsy, or while dozing off, he may abuse himself as in you may say something that is wrong that harms you. So you might
recite something wrong. And you may commit [???]okai remember our teachers in Medina explaining this to us? They were saying, you may say something that takes you out of Islam.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, when one of you perform sauna while dozing off, he may abuse himself instead of seeking forgiveness, instead of submitting to Allah and seeking forgiveness through your spot on asking for that forgiveness. And of course, you know, we see that in our recitation of Surah Fatiha right, yeah, can I do I can abstain, if you did not set off and must have been set either Latina and anti la him have hated him a movie I made him a bond mean, we're asking Allah Subhana Allah to guide us to help us to keep us on the straight path. So instead of doing that, we may actually say something that's wrong, that takes us out of Islam or harms us.
So you may abuse yourself and do something wrong to yourself. So these are the excuses that we know are there for those who are feeling tired. But the question now is, how many of us are so exhausted that we fall asleep while we're reciting the Quran or while we're standing in sign up?
Now, I know people will say no, but I'm super tired. I'm exhausted. Yes, I get that. But let's talk about that exhaustion that we used to feel when we were much younger when we would push ourselves beyond limits, and continue to go. Right You remember a time when you're standing, for example, you went to Makkah, or Medina for Ramadan, and you're standing there until the weekend, you're exhausted. You're just like, oh, forcing yourself to keep your eyes open, but you're falling asleep. It's actually better to lay down and go to sleep, get some rest. If your body is asking for it, then your body needs it and you submitting to a loss of handling data in giving your body what it needs
is also very bad. It's also
So an act of worship. But let's not just use that as an excuse to say, you know what, I'm always so tired. I can't do this. You know, there's a hadith that says if you're tired and drowsy and you don't know what you're saying, and you say no Adele, when I wake up at two o'clock in the morning, I have no idea what I'm saying. It's like you say, Allahu Akbar, Alona, you know, all hung up on Yom Lata. I remember a few times I was so tired, you know that I actually decided I had some cripsy in place of pseudo Fatiha right in place of sort of to Fatiha. And yeah, so kind of like you remember, back in the day when we were university students, right, and you would pull all nighters for an
exam, and then you're just like,
you have no idea what you're doing. I remember when we were in Medina, had a lot It was never from, from my practice, to stay awake all night. all nighters are not my practice. My thing is all day yours, right? So I remember I would, I would always try to get a good night's sleep a night before an exam. There were only some times where I was really like nervous or really stressed over certain subjects where I would actually, you know, stay awake all night. But one of the reasons why I never did that is I remember when I was young, I was about 13 years old.
1314 years old, one of our teachers used to tell us, your brain needs to be fresh in the morning. So when we were memorizing going on, and I even remember which teacher it was, and he's still alive, he's still here in the GTA. So
it's actually Maulana Qasim in God, for those of you who might know him, right? And when I pass him in God at abubaker Masjid, right, so he was he was the invigilator of No, he was not invigilated he was the examiner of one of my exams, when I was memorizing for earn, this was like at the beginning of 1994, and beginning of 1994, and I was reciting to him.
And at the end of that he he asked me, he said,
Did you sleep last night? And I said, No, it was actually, you know, really nervous for this exam. You know, didn't want to fail the exam was like my, one of my first times doing like a head exam super, like stressful. And he's like, it's better for you to read all day, and go to sleep and rest your brain, rest your mind, right at night to get some rest, you know, sleep early, wake early revise in the morning by reading it one, two or three times. And that's it. And I continued that routine, even when I was a student in Medina, all my friends, they knew me, for the for the one student who comes in with his pen in his hand, we never brings his notes, right, I would never bring
my notes to class in Medina, I would come in with my pen in my hand and clicking it, I just be clicking my pen. And I go in, I sit in the room, and I don't want anyone to talk to me, because I spent the whole day yesterday revising and you come into class. You know, for the exam, you come into the exam room, and you don't want to talk to anyone cuz you don't want to mess up what's already in your brain. Right? So it's important for us when we are dedicating time to the urn, that we give it the time that's needed, we push ourselves that's actually one thing we're going to be talking about next week, right? The time that we dedicate for the plan. It's time dedicated
specifically for the caller and with no distractions. But that's next week's topic inshallah, Tad, but here we see what we're talking about is if a person feels drowsy, so you know, those days when you're really exhausted, you're falling asleep. Well, those are the times when if you don't know what you're saying, and you don't know what you're doing, you get some rest. Okay? It's from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not to recite the Quran when you don't know what you are saying. Now remember, you might say something that you regret, you might say something that is not even permissible. And so you have to be sure that whatever it is that you're saying, when
you're saying it while you're reciting the Quran, that you are going to recite what is right, and you're going to recite it without mistake. And if you're making mistakes in it, and you don't know what you're saying, or you're totally confused, and everything is looking like shakshuka in your mind. And if you don't know what shakshuka is, go for hydrometer and ask them for shakshuka sandwich, and then you know what it is right? So if your mind is filled with shakshuka Carlos, it's time for you to go to sleep. That's all the time that we have for today. I'll open it up for some questions. If anyone has any questions. I see a good number of you online on the three different
platforms that I'm streaming from right now. So if any of you have any questions, feel free to type it in the chat right now inshallah. I'll keep it open for a few minutes.
I'm just gonna move one of these cameras over because I can't see the screen on it.
So if anyone has any
questions, please feel free to type it in there.
Just this bit
I'll give you another 30 seconds since all of you are really, really bad at typing fast.
Okay, someone's asking, what about reciting sudo to F last three times? Does it equal the reward of reciting the Quran? Yes, it does. So head these are the prophets on offer, it will send them that mentions that reciting the Quran reciting sort of a class earns you the reward of one third of the end. So if you recite it, one third, one third, one third, that's a whole Quran, right? However, you don't get the reward, you get the reward of a third of the Quran, but you don't get the reward of the struggle that a person goes through in reciting it. So there's time that's dedicated, you're not spending that time, right? That time is reward. There's energy that's being used, there's,
you know, strain on the body that's being used. There's, there's, there's a lot of things that happen. So remember, you know, when we do recite the Quran,
sorry, when we recite sort of a class, we get the reward of a third of the code and but we don't get the reward of the, the, the
the time and energy and dedication that goes into it.
Can I sleep before offering a prayer? So in the winter months, I wouldn't really encourage anyone to do that to go to sleep before a prayer because it shows so early. You could pray that like 645, and head to bed, right? But yes, at certain times in the year a shows much later. And even if a person does want to do that in the winter months, that's fine. You can go to sleep after motherhood and then wake up and pray or shall prayer in the middle of the night. That is an encouraged time, it is encouraged to pray a shot later in the night, okay later in the night.
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
you know, at his time, the Sahaba would take shifts. So some of them would pray a show and stay awake with the Quran and then go to sleep in the later half of the night. And then some of them would stay awake. Some of them would sleep right after melted and wake up and then pray Asia and then stay awake in you know, pm and so on and so on.
What about you sleep, then you missed a sauna or you sleep in your missile silo? May Allah subhana wa tada help you don't make it a habit. If it happens once you're there, if you're calm and sell us, so the pen is lifted in three cases, right? One of them. One of those scenarios is when a person is sleeping until they wake up. But they have to actively try to wake up for that prayer. So if they don't try to wake up for that prayer, and they intentionally go to sleep without setting an alarm, because they're like, Hey, you know what, I'm not going to wake up anyways. So it's all good. If I set an alarm, then I have an excuse, and then I don't have an excuse to sleep through it. So I may
as well do that, then that's wrong. Right? So set your alarms have the intention to wake up this person sleeps through it. And then john, last panel data, you know, overlooks that, but we have to make sure that we pray the prayer as soon as we wake up. And
is there any recommendation to read
sort of Doohan on Thursday night?
I don't know. I'll have to check that I don't know.
is reciting the Quran without stopping and pausing better and completing in a month or relaxing and pondering and completing gradually.
So like I said earlier, we should try to recite through the Koran, okay, and it's encouraged the reason why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sets a time for us to finish the Koran is an encouragement for us to stick to the Koran.
If it was not encouraged for us to recite Quran frequently, then we probably wouldn't recite it as often as we currently do. Right? We probably recite it even less than we currently do. So it's important for us to try to recite more of the Quran.
And then ponder Oh, you you'll have the opportunity to ponder over more of the Quran when you recite more of it, because you'll be covering it more often. And remember, you'll be coming back to those verses more frequently as well. Right? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite the Quran regularly, but he would also pause at certain times certain places within his recitation and he would, you know, be crying for a long time in the night, just reciting one verse over and over and over again and
Normal recitation of the full course on which other sources? Should we recite more often? Whichever suta you like, whichever sutras you prefer whichever school does you enjoy, whichever sutras you want to revise, right? no specific sources of the Quran except for the ones that are mentioned to be recited at certain times. So for example, sorta to cuff right to recite it on a Friday that's important. So recite that, at least on the Fridays and
she has it a sha Allah, Allah Javadoc Sikh, says, Okay, I will struggle and finish reading the Quran every month in sha Allah, Allah evatik feet. And I know you have a nice recitation because I prayed behind you at
I've only sipan goldcoast. Right, we stayed together in Gold Coast. And I remember you lead us in sauna and your recitation was beautiful martial arts about a kebab.
Too expensive to go for Hajj. So what is shakshuka?
shakshuka is scrambled eggs with everything in it with tomatoes and onions and everything you can possibly think of. So it's basically scrambled eggs with everything in it, right? With lots of vegetables in there. That's what sexual guys is basically mixed. It's like a whole bunch of things mixed up. So for example, if I say, I'm, you know, born and raised in Canada, my mom's from Portugal, my dad's from Pakistan. You know, my wife and her family are from multiple places and our children from multiverse like all men, that's all mixed up, right? Everything's mixed up. That's sexual. Everything mixed together. Okay.
Does that little tentative agenda from today we'll be back at doing my daily caller and we're on moneybagg fique Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you through your recitation and bless me with the reward of encouraging all of us to recite the Quran more frequently. inshallah, I'm greedy for rewards if you didn't notice. So, one of the things here that I didn't mention, you know, some of the scholars say, if it's difficult for someone, and they don't want to mention too many things, because people will say, oh, but it's difficult for me. So there's a difficult there's a way out, there's a way out, no, we shouldn't look for the ways out we should look for the way in, right try
to get closer to a lawn not try to get further from a loss of habitat. So the scholars mentioned Look, if someone is busy with other things that would be too hard for them to recite more of the Koran is in finishing it once every, you know, 10 days or once every seven days. And they're busy with another type of everybody so they're busy with you know, seeking knowledge or they're busy with teaching Islam or they're busy with helping society they're busy with with things that are productive and good, then that is okay as well. Right? That's okay as well. So I'm greedy for rewards. I'm encouraging all of you recite more code and because in a lot of data if you do it then
I will share in those rewards without diminishing from your reward as well.
Chicana Mashallah, though as a heat from Colombo live Actually, I miss Colombo, I miss Srilanka It was such a short and such a beautiful trip, I had such an amazing time in Sri Lanka. And I only went once, and I really wanted to go back. And now last panel down and make it easy for us to, you know, travel again, sometime soon. Um,
tips to encourage kids to recite and make it consistent. So this is something I'm going to share with you that my wife taught me, okay, trying to score some brownie points here.
If we want our children to be consistent with the recitation of the Quran, we have to be consistent with it ourselves. And
a lot of the time As parents, we just want to tell our children go and recite the Quran, go and open the Quran. But we have to be there with them to teach them how to recite the Quran, and to encourage them in their recitation. And it doesn't take long, it really doesn't take long, it just takes a little bit of time. And as long as it's consistent, and that's the key word that you mentioned there. Abdullah is consistent.
You know, if we are going to read 10, okay, 15 minutes of the Quran, we encourage our children to receive recite 15 minutes of the court and every single day, that's much better than getting them to recite half an hour of the Quran once a week, or, you know, half an hour of the Quran two times a week. Because if they read once for half an hour, and then three days go by then they sort of forget what they learned. But if it's consistent, then they're increasing in their knowledge. They're increasing in their speed or fluency of recitation, and it becomes a lot easier for them and they learn more and they become connected to it, you know, becomes a regular thing becomes a part of
their day. So really, what it comes down to is us putting that time in and dedicating ourselves to reciting the content.
As well, or spending our time with our children while they are reciting the Quran, right to make it a part of the day, my last pen without an easy for every single one of us. I mean, like moms who are busy caring for children at home? Well, that's what the husband is for. Right? So if moms are busy caring for children at home, then the mother takes a break. And the father looks after the teaching of trauma. They're busy with their mother fulfilling the family's rights. Yes. But well, you know what a father can use the same excuse, though. So a father can say I'm busy with fulfilling the rights of the family. And that's a bad as well. So Father might say, I'm busy with work, and I'm
earning and I have to earn and provide for the family. And my salary is not the same salary as other people, right? That person might say, you know, other people might make $250,000 a year and this miskeen, you know, father's making maybe $40,000 a year. And he's like, Well, I have to work harder and harder and harder in order to get more so that I can provide the things for my family that they meet. And other people can work less, because their salaries are much higher. And they can, you know, afford to miss days of work here and there.
And they might not be as stressed as well, because maybe they're earning more, as opposed to the person who's earning less, and they're more stressed out. And there's a lot of a lot more on their mind, and they become tired with it, so on and so forth. So we shouldn't just use that excuse of, you know, the mother is always busy with things at home. Well, the father's busy with things as well, we have to be fair, we have to be fair, I'm not saying that a mother is not busy at home, trust me. If I could choose between being a mother being a father, I would probably choose being a father. Because being a mother is not easy. As much as there's reward in it. Especially when it
comes to children more reward for the mother than there is for the father because your mother, your mother, your mother, and then came your father. But
just is the way it is. May Allah make it easy for every single one of us. I mean, I have struggles in memorizing the on any tips.
Be consistent, and listen to it. So what I always ask people who are trying to learn the put on trend to memorize the Quran. I asked them, What do you listen to? What do you listen to?
During your downtime? So when you're not doing anything, what are you listening to? Okay, if you're not listening to the quote, earn, then how do you expect to strengthen your memory of the Koran? It's like telling someone who wants to become strong.
Do you go to the gym? No, but I dream of being strong. Okay, you can dream of being strong all you want. But until you go and you put the hard work and dedication into it, it's not going to come right, it's just not going to come. So the same thing with the memorization of a quote. And remember, the brain is a muscle as well, you got to like exercise that muscle, right you need to
you need to basically use it often otherwise, it becomes weaker and weaker and weaker. So spend time with the court. And remember, it's not it's not a matter of spending six hours a day with a quote on and someone who's working full time and has a family and children and so on. That's very difficult. And our time for someone to do that. No doubt, we understand that because our society the way it's the way it's made up. And this, you know, we're getting into a topic that frustrates me about the society we live in. Because we've sort of just been channeled into living a certain way, because everyone else is living that way. It would be nice to sort of separate from that and just say, Hey,
you know what, this is my routine, this is what I got to do. This is what I need to focus on. This is what I have to achieve in this life and how else go with it, right?
So a lot of the time, it's not just spending, you know, six to eight hours a day with the court and in order to strengthen your memory, it could be just spending
one hour with the court on but every single day, every single day, strategically as well. Right? So for example, someone who has a half of the Quran, how does a half of the Quran, earn, review the Quran, like revise it. A lot of people say I want to become a half if you know what it takes to, to to revise your plan once you are half is like we might see someone who has memorized one Jews of the Koran, and they complain or it's so hard for me to remember that. Imagine how it is to remember 30 times more than that.
It's difficult, right? So you need to be strategic in your revision. So now you might say to the house of an urn, from Santa tensa, right five and you'll never forget, what is that five, five Jews a day?
No, and that's the minimum. So you have to recite five hours a day of the Quran. Okay.
Some people will be able to recite
just one five times, and then tomorrow just to five times, which means for one month, they will not come back to the first juice.
So they may forget parts of that first juice.
But for some people that works better, because they strengthen that first Joe is a lot more. So usually this method is used after this following method. what they should do technically is recite five Jews have a quote on first, second, third, fourth, fifth, today, and tomorrow 678 910, and the day after 1112 1314 1516 1718 1920. So next week, they come back to the first Joe's again, second, third, fourth, fifth. So every week they're going over certain Joseph, the same juice over and over and over. So you're reciting that juice at least once a week, which makes it a lot easier to retain. Then what happens is, once you've got it really, really solid, you transition to memorize, to
revising, one does five times each day, because you're able to recite it without looking into your code. And you're able to recite it as you go along. You're able to recite as you're driving as you're walking as you're shopping as you're doing things. You're You're not even thinking about it sometimes and you're subconsciously reciting that Joseph earn without making any mistakes and right. So, there are different ways of doing it. You need to be strategic and consistent. Okay.
What do you recommend to learn Arabic?
start learning? And what would I suggest starting to learn vocabulary, start learning vocabulary, take a take a desktop, take an exercise book, and write by hand
five words a day that you memorize in Arabic, right? And then every week, have someone test you on those words. Okay? And then once you're able to maintain that, you know, five vocabulary words a week, and increase to
10 words for five days throughout the week. Right? So 10 words every day for five days, and then those two days, the weekend for example, you revise all of the words that you've learned, okay, so you basically build a bank of vocabulary. Once you have a bank of vocabulary.
take the next step. The next step would be actually putting that vocabulary together by learning how to grammatically form sentences within the Arabic language inshallah. Okay, well, and they're in schulung data. I don't see any more questions coming up. Does that come along haven for spending the time throughout this class.
