And we do need to get together and learn a little bit about the Quran in sha Allah, not liking how my hats are fitting these days. And I don't know why I think it's because of the winter. Maybe I'm putting on some weight and just face looks rounder than usual. Maybe it's just the lighting in this room, I don't know. But anyways, whatever it is, I'm glad that you're here and I'm glad that you made it on this Friday night in sha Allah, we will benefit all together and I look forward to spending the next half an hour in sha

Allah talking about the etiquettes.

00:00:56--> 00:01:31

In our series that we've been going through, and tonight inshallah, we're going to be focusing a little bit more on the recitation of the Quran out loud, so reciting the Quran out loud, and is it permissible or not permissible and so on and so forth. Before we get into that, though, I really would like everyone who's on so far to just type in the name of the city and country that you're in inshallah, so the city and country that you're in and I see shift you have seen is on Batticaloa a few come alive, Zika, he has seen a lot of childhood friend who is now in the United States, shake Islam

lot's of luck. So just I've been there in the chat, the name of the city that you're in, and the country that you're in right now in sha Allah, before we get started, that will give people a chance to log in. Remember, every time I go live, it takes a minute or two for people to get that notification. And then for them to come on. So we have some in Hamilton hamdulillah we have people on YouTube and Facebook who are not responding. Hopefully that comes up real soon in the chat.

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

And

00:02:06--> 00:02:10

can't see the other camera but Mila. That's good. We have quite a few people on there.

00:02:12--> 00:02:16

And that's amazing. She who shall

00:02:17--> 00:02:29

have the LA Hawaii live it so Chicago really interesting story about Chicago. So I was talking to a brother on Wednesday. Okay, this is like a intro to our class inshallah.

00:02:31--> 00:03:20

So this brother flew into Canada for the very first time like 25 years ago, and his flight landed in Chicago. So he flies in from his country abroad, and lands in Chicago and he had a connecting flight to go to another one of the states within the US. So when he lands in Chicago, last Seoul, South Korea, Allahu Akbar, that's amazing. Absolutely amazing. Someone from South Korea is on our, our in our class today, humbler? So this brother lens in Chicago, and he gets there and he's like, this is not what I thought the US would be like, I'm like, really? What did you think you'd be like, like, I'll tell you what I did. So he goes, he went over to the, one of the officers like a police officer

00:03:20--> 00:03:53

or immigration officer within the airport, and he was waiting for his transit. Right. So he went out for a little bit and then came in for his next flight. And he goes to the officer, he's like, excuse me, sir. Can I ask you a question? He's like, Yeah, sure. He says, Is this Chicago and the officers like, Yeah, he starts laughing thinking this man is like, you know, first time in a developed world country or developed country of the world, you know, and he's like, you know, the officers like thinking, Okay, here we go, you know, someone's Fresh Off the Boat kind of thing. But this brother is like,

00:03:54--> 00:04:00

this is Chicago, really? And the officers like yes, Chicago. Welcome to the United States is like,

00:04:01--> 00:04:01

Okay.

00:04:03--> 00:04:10

Just turns around the officers like, there's something wrong He's like, I just thought this was the land of opportunities and I don't see much opportunity out there.

00:04:12--> 00:04:50

Somehow vanilla He's like, he did not think that Chicago would have been what it was, but again, this was like 25 years ago. So it may last for how do you know bless every single one of you is just a light hearted you know, joke to start off for today. But a lot of the time when we travel the world we go places where initially what we see is not really the reality of what's happening on the streets or, you know, the the development of the city and the country. So we'll have the LA now we have Chef yacine in Chicago, so you doing some good work there and kind of love the loss. Bless him and his family. And, you know, grant you a president sometime soon. It's it's been the longest

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

election in the world. But it's, you know, the lack of opportunities. This there's always an opportunity to never have a president for

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

In the United States

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

All right, so

00:05:08--> 00:05:17

I'm super happy as well. We have someone from Seoul, South Korea, we have someone from Milton. Sadly, Milton, you know, boring old Milton. But you know, that's good.

00:05:18--> 00:05:29

had a meeting with our Member of Parliament yesterday, Adam and couvillion gave me this snazzy looking mug, which I'll use that way no one can know what I'm drinking. So what happened last week was on the Friday night.

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

I was live streaming and I had a cup of coffee.

00:05:34--> 00:05:48

And it's at Tim Hortons or something like that. Right? It was a cup of coffee and I was drinking it. My dad was watching the live stream my parents were watching from Montreal. And what my father said was he called me up two days later, he's like, Mashallah, you reinvented something? I'm like, What do you mean?

00:05:50--> 00:06:29

Sorry, you invented something new. I was like, What do you mean, I invented something new. He goes, and I don't know he might be watching now and I'll get in trouble again. He says, first time I ever see shift teaching and Islamic class drinking coffee. He's like, what happened to you? Are you drinking coffee in the semi class talking about the Quran, and you're drinking coffee. I'm like, Baba Ji, I was really tired to do this really, really tired. You know? And this is like a light hearted, relaxed session, but he's right. He's absolutely right. So now that I have this, I'm drinking water hamdulillah you know, it's not coffee. And, and if one day, I'm drinking coffee, you

00:06:29--> 00:06:31

know, my parents will never know.

00:06:33--> 00:06:39

Okay, so like I said, we're gonna be getting into the continuation of our topic, which is,

00:06:40--> 00:06:41

which is

00:06:42--> 00:07:09

the etiquette of reciting the Quran? Out Loud or silent? We have the law, South Africa. Look at that. Cape Town. Huh? Joining us all the way from Cape Town amazing. Can't wait to go back to Cape Town. top of the list for one of the favorite places and I'll say it's at the top of the list right somewhere in the top of the list for one of my favorite places to go and to be in and to visit and people absolutely amazing.

00:07:11--> 00:07:57

Okay, so it's the bad job. Earn? Is it permissible for us to recite the Quran out loud? Is it encouraged for us to recite the Quran out loud? Is it discouraged to recite the Quran out loud? What is the ruling? What is what what does Islam say about this? Well, many of the scholars talk about the recitation of Quran should be done out loud, should it be done silently? You know, what should the person do? And we have to look at it in the sense that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited the Quran sometimes quietly and sometimes recited the Quran loudly. So, in a way, it's kind of left up to the person, except for the times where certain things are supposed to be done in a

00:07:57--> 00:08:27

certain way. So for example, when we're praying, and also write the two prayers throughout the day that are recited quietly or silently, we are still reciting the Quran. You're still moving your lips in your mouth, but you are reciting silently in the prayer. But for fudge a lot of Muslims in Asia, you're going to be reciting loudly. Right? And that is how we pray those prayers, right? You recite out loud so that people around you can hear that doesn't mean you start talking about other

00:08:32--> 00:09:09

things outside there might have gotten startled, drop their cup or something. You don't do that right? You don't just go crazy yelling. That's not how we recite the Quran. We have to respect Look what and even when we were saying it out loud. So sometimes people will be like reciting really, really loud and you'll notice that the most famous or rock of the people who were slated to our train recite that they will recite it in a manner that their voice will be heard loud as in you can hear them from far away, but it still sounds nice and respectful. Okay, so when we're reciting what you can recite

00:09:12--> 00:09:18

me in or unhemmed nila here have been learning me or

00:09:20--> 00:09:27

beat me even louder, but it should still be respectful. Now.

00:09:30--> 00:09:32

If a person though,

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

feels that they will fall into the which is Austin tation. Or in simple terms showing off. If a person feels that they're going to be showing off with the recitation. If they recite out loud, then for that person, they should try to recite silently more often. Okay, they should try to recite silently more often. A lot of Zico feadship yacine is up

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

Hello Hayden for you know joining us for a few minutes Always a pleasure to have you in our company. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you and your family and gratitude along life upon email in Islam and keep you protected always. And I hope to see you sometime soon inshallah. I think the last time that we met each other, we were in Madina munawwara. So how to love the best place that we can meet. And I hope that the next time we meet again is in Medina to Manoa and then we meet again in Macau as well. In short, a lot of time a lot of value kicks in.

00:10:30--> 00:10:50

Yeah, that's amazing. You know, I just it just popped into my mind the last time that we met we were we were in Medina, Allah. So reciting the Quran silently, is better for a person who fears that they may fall into showing off when they're reciting. So if someone is reciting the Quran,

00:10:51--> 00:11:33

you know, they might be sitting down in the masjid or at home or wherever they are. And they were saying, let's just use the example of the Quran being recited in the masjid, you're sitting down and you're reciting it, and someone comes in and sits down, right? And all of a sudden, you start to feel like okay, I need to impress this person with my recitation. That's where it's better for you to stop reciting aloud, keep reciting. But don't recite out loud, because you then fall into Rhea. Rhea is a type of ship, it's a type of have. We know what choke is, is like rendering a partner with a lesson kind of way to add it, right? It's a minor ship. Why? Because you are doing something for

00:11:33--> 00:12:06

the intention of being recognized by others and the last panel, okay, so that we need to be very careful of. However, if a person doesn't feel that they will be showing off or that they are you no sense that that feeling or that need to show off when they're reciting out loud, then it is better to recite out loud than it is to recite silently. Now, we asked this question, why? Why is it better to recite out loud as opposed to reciting silently? What makes it better?

00:12:07--> 00:12:10

Well, I have a list of things and we'll talk about them, okay.

00:12:15--> 00:12:51

First of all, it's better to recite out loud on the condition that we are not going to be disturbing anybody else, okay, on the condition that we're not going to be disturbing anybody else. For example, if someone is in the masjid in their brain, or someone is around us at home, and they're praying, and we're reciting the Quran out loud, and we're disturbing them, you can imagine if you're standing in Salah, right, and you're trying to focus and concentrate on your Salah, you want that assure, right? That concentration and devotion and submission in your saga to Allah subhana wa jal, and you're focusing on you know, praying, and someone sitting next to you going, woman, I'll let you

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

know it was a marathon, I can give you some miracle.

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

You have any fun, okay, man.

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

I can't focus. So it's better to recite out loud on the condition. First of all, that you're not going to be disturbing someone that's around us, for example, someone who is praying, or someone who is sleeping,

00:13:15--> 00:13:30

or anything other than that, like you might be disturbing someone, someone is trying to focus, they're doing their work, right. Imagine, you know, if you're at home, one of the parents is working from home, because it's COVID, you know, and everyone's just working from home kind of thing, or most people you know,

00:13:32--> 00:13:46

work from home or not work from home or whatever, you know, and someone comes in the room and just starts to recycle. And you're like, wait, I'm trying to work here. You know, trying to focus try to concentrate. I can't do this when you're reciting out loud. And then that person says, Oh, are you disrespecting? Go ahead.

00:13:48--> 00:14:20

Well, the person who's reciting out loud is actually the one who's sort of disrespecting the end. Because they're putting another person in a situation that is making them not happy. Because they're busy with something. It's not that they hate them. And it's not like they dislike the Quran. But the reality is, they're busy with something already they're preoccupied. And now this person comes in and starts to recite the Quran and in disturbs them. So it's not that they're disturbed by the recitation of the Quran, they're disturbed by the person who is reciting the Quran. Okay.

00:14:21--> 00:14:49

And so if someone is sleeping, we shouldn't just recite it out loud and disturb them. Why? Because even if that person is sleeping, and it's time for prayer, and they don't get to wake up for prayer, because they just are in a deep sleep and didn't hear their alarm or whatever. If I must have had one to add it has the pens lifted, as we know in the handy little fee. That is, if the pen is lifted for the person who's sleeping, then Shouldn't we be respectful towards the person who's sleeping as well?

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

We should write Alec from Santa Clara County but earlier from gumba Lumpur, Lisa Ababa.

00:15:00--> 00:15:08

Mashallah, we have Malaysians in here we have South Africans, we have Australians, we have Americans, we have Canadians from the lagna from Toronto.

00:15:11--> 00:15:18

So it is better to recite out loud. Why, if these conditions are met? Why is it better to recite out loud? Well,

00:15:22--> 00:16:04

the effort that is required to recite the quota out loud is greater than the effort that is required to recite the Quran silently, generally speaking, in most cases, therefore, if there's more effort that's involved, that means we are gaining more rewards, we need to do more. Right in order to get more rewards for last, how do we to add, so when you're raising your voice and reciting, there's more efforts you need to use your vocal cords. First of all, you need to also use your lips and your tongue right and have the voice coming out. You need to breathe in and breathe out and make sure that your breathing pattern is in check. You need to you know, beautify your recitation in ways that

00:16:04--> 00:16:29

we learned already that are permissible to beautify our recitation, you also need to know the rules of tension, right? You need to pronounce them properly. If you're just reading with your eyes, okay, you're reading with your eyes, but you're not actually pronouncing the words properly from your own mouth. So there's more of an effort that is needed to recite them out loud. Therefore, you get more rewards. One of the reasons why it's more beneficial to recite the poem out loud.

00:16:31--> 00:16:32

In addition to that,

00:16:37--> 00:17:19

it also benefits other people who will hear your recitation. So now your reciting out loud, other people who hear your recitation they will get rewards as well. First of all, for listening and paying attention to the plan, but you will be rewarded for them listening to the Quran and anything that they benefit from your recitation, even if they're sitting there just enjoying your recitation of the Quran in a respectful manner, they are happy and pleased with the Quran and it is making them come closer to a muscle panel where to enter because of your recitation, then that is another reason why it is preferred to recite the Quran out loud. First of all, like we said, it requires more

00:17:19--> 00:17:26

effort. Secondly, that you are going to benefit others who are hearing your recitation of the Quran.

00:17:29--> 00:18:09

Thirdly, the recitation of the Quran we know a lot of hand with Allah mentions that the believers when they hear the planet, it should mix their hearts shake or shiver, right. As in, it wakes us up. And that's the next point that the recitation of Quran wakes us up. And it brings us closer to a law, not only the person who's hearing us, but the person who's reciting. So the recitation of the Quran wakes up the heart and when we recite it out loud, and we hear the recitation being recited out loud, it wakes our heart it really, you know, brings us back to life. Sometimes you feel really down and you're struggling, you're going through hard times in life or your day is just like it's

00:18:09--> 00:18:22

just one of those nasty days, right? where things are just not going the way you want them to go. And then you recite some go and you feel so much better. You just feel like motivated like, Yeah. Are you ready?

00:18:26--> 00:18:31

Isla de su Sana teamie. Amina jhamora.

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

Nina.

00:18:38--> 00:18:51

And you just get into your recitation. So it wakes you up. You just feel like yes, this is it. This is the this is what I believe. And this is awesome, right? And it makes you feel more alive, makes you feel more alive, right?

00:18:52--> 00:19:16

So it wakes up to the heart, right? The heart of the coffee, the one who's actually reciting it. We're not even talking about the people that are listening, but we're talking about the person who was reciting the Quran and because it wakes up our heart. That's also one of the reasons why it brings us closer to Allah and it is more beneficial for us to recite it out loud right to recite the core and

00:19:18--> 00:19:20

remind me of something interesting that I

00:19:21--> 00:19:25

that I noticed in Joomla today, remind me about this at the end just say

00:19:26--> 00:19:53

Juma donation, okay. And no it doesn't have anything to do with the parking lots of interesting massala that actually giggled, I giggled, right I had my I had my mask on the to my foot but just started I started delivering today and I just started giggling because I saw something and I was like how a lot like it just made me chuckle because a sonic massala and I'll share it with you afterwards inshallah not massada for Thai not masala for food or anything must Allah, okay

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

fourthly,

00:20:01--> 00:20:23

The recitation of the Quran out loud encourages us after it wakes us up wakes up our hearts I should say. It encourages us to ponder over the Koran right we start to ponder over the Quran. So you might be reciting like a you know I was explaining in Jumeirah the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:20:25--> 00:20:36

And now I was telling people now every time you hear I had to of course the or you recite ayatul kursi you should think of what it means Allahu Allah.

00:20:37--> 00:20:37

Either

00:20:44--> 00:20:46

Hulu Sina

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

Yahoo.

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

TV

00:20:56--> 00:20:57

let me

00:21:02--> 00:21:34

be me. So now you're listening to yourself reciting the Quran. It's waking up your heart, but you're also pondering over it. Allahu Allah, Allah. Allah you can you lead who seen a tune? Well, no, I must have handled Allah is Allah is the one whose life is perfect and he perfect. Sorry, his life is perfect. And He created us and gave us life. And so we are dependent upon him. And also he is a human, he gives us everything that we need.

00:21:36--> 00:21:53

Right everything that we think that we are in need of some kind with Allah grants us that so we're reciting is of course the noun we're thinking of the meaning of it. So we're pondering over the Quran by listening to it, right? And reciting it out loud. So it connects more with our internal self, okay.

00:21:55--> 00:21:58

In addition to that, from the benefits of reciting the Quran out loud,

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

we have some ad so it draws a person's

00:22:05--> 00:22:08

ears or their attention to the

00:22:09--> 00:22:34

recite it out loud, it draws your attention into it right. And sometimes you will beautify your recitation for yourself. beautify your recitation for yourself. One of the things I used to do when I was young to practice might be to sit in a staircase. So the staircase going from our main floor of our house, we lived in a bungalow, you know, when we were kids, and the staircase going down to the basement used to echo so I used to go in there and recite it for

00:22:38--> 00:23:31

me, and it would echo and so my ears are drawn into the recitation of the Quran, also, because I'm trying to make sure I'm listening correctly for any mistakes that my mouth is going to be making. So if, if I'm going to be pronouncing something wrong, like our shift used to give us one as per week, right, and we just sit there with he caribou? He can he can you say no, you're yakka The first one was different than your yet. The second The first one was louder. Yeah, can you can stare darrien drunk. But when you're reciting out loud, you need to listen and pay attention. Am I doing it the same? Am I correcting my recitation as I go along? Some people will recite to me like,

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

I mean,

00:23:34--> 00:23:34

I don't remember

00:23:36--> 00:24:06

what I'm watching Nicola Haney, moneykey, not Maliki, right, don't swallow the letters. So when you recite the Quran, it allows you to hear for any mistakes that you're making. And this is where you get to correct yourself, right? So it's drawing your heart in, you're paying attention to it, you're focused and woke you up. It's, it's spiritually motivating you. And now you're also listening for any mistakes that you make making of the Quran throughout your recitation.

00:24:08--> 00:24:26

Early in the unknown. So another benefit to reciting the quote and out loud is that it brushes off sleep and tiredness, right when we feel tired, recite out loud, and it wakes you up. If you recycle and silently usually

00:24:30--> 00:24:59

you fall asleep, right? Because you're just like imagining in your mind and you end up falling asleep, which is fine. Like if this is what you know helps you to relax. Because your intention is to go to sleep now it's the end of the day. There's nothing wrong with that, right? You can benefit from listening to the poor. And you know, it being a means of relaxing you right relaxing you being pleased with a loss of Halloween. But here we see that we're saying out loud brushes off that sleep right it pushes away

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

The tiredness. And so

00:25:03--> 00:25:14

I remember when we were students and shift yacine was one of my classmates growing up and she had a fight as well, we all study together, she had a lot. You know, our teachers would tell us Louder, louder, and we'd be reciting, you'd be like,

00:25:20--> 00:25:21

louder, what I mean

00:25:23--> 00:25:24

by email

00:25:31--> 00:25:37

me. And so that louder recitation allows you to wake up.

00:25:38--> 00:25:46

Right? Now, again, we're not talking about going to an extent, that's just crazy and ridiculous. But if you just sitting there going

00:25:47--> 00:25:48

to

00:25:51--> 00:25:52

34

00:25:56--> 00:25:57

images, when you

00:26:04--> 00:26:08

actually just fall asleep, you just become bored. But if you are

00:26:13--> 00:26:13

new,

00:26:18--> 00:26:19

we aim.

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

And then your teacher tells you louder.

00:26:41--> 00:26:51

So keeps you awake. And remember, the best way to perfect your recitation is to recite it out loud, recite the Quran out loud, those of you who are going

00:26:53--> 00:27:02

you're not going to be perfecting your recitation. You might memorize the Quran that way, but you are not going to be perfecting your recitation of the Quran. And I have got it.

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

Have it on mine right now.

00:27:07--> 00:27:53

Who is he? My good friend coffee, mother law, who lives in Vancouver, he just logged in. And I would love to have him on one day and shout along to Anna, you know, to join the session and recite even three or four verses of the Quran. Because Subhanallah you'll see how it brings you to life, right? It just motivates you. So reciting the Quran out loud, it wakes up the heart, and it pushes away the tiredness, you become happy with the Quran. And remember some of the scholars, you know some of our teachers in Medina, some of them never used to sleep. I remember one in particular, I went into his office because the teachers use our teachers, our professors tell us and that shift, he never

00:27:53--> 00:28:08

sleeps. He only sleeps when he dozes off and then when he wakes up again, as in like for a few minutes, because someone comes into his office, he's full of energy once again. So I went in one day, and I asked him I said, Chef, our teachers tell us that you never go to sleep. He's like,

00:28:09--> 00:28:17

you know, he's like super humble, doesn't want to admit to it or anything. I'm like [???], what do you advise someone to do

00:28:18--> 00:28:30

to maximize their time in their life? Right and now you know now that you think back of all these things, you realize there's so many amazing lessons that we can learn in life. So he says

00:28:31--> 00:29:12

he really didn't answer my question directly. All he kept saying was busy yourself with a busy yourself with a busy yourself with a corner. I thought okay, how am I going to be maximizing my time in my life, if I'm busy with only that, but the reality is, is it is your it is your guide, right? Allah Subhana Allah gave us the Quran as a guide for us in this life. So if we busy ourselves with the Quran, we find everything we're looking for in life within the Quran. As you still go to work, you'll still learn other things, other sciences and so on and go and go and do whatever you need to do in terms of your profession. Or when you busy yourself with

00:29:14--> 00:29:33

you find happiness and joy in everything that you're doing. And anytime you're gonna find some hardship in life, you're going to be happy with the Quran as well as it will be what brings happiness and joy back into your life. Alright, so it allows us to ponder over brushes off sleep. Okay. Another thing that it does is what is even the shot. So basically,

00:29:35--> 00:29:48

the n increases our energy, it allows us to become more energized. Right? And you'll see those of us who have the core and people who have memorized the Quran.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

A lot of them are just filled with energy, I think can go on and on and on and do lots of things in their day. And you wonder like, how do they do all this? Because the

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

Gives them energy. And they've learned to put so much time into their revision, of course, that their day never feels complete unless they're spending it with the plan. And that's a lesson for every single one of us that we are not spending enough time with myself, first, I take this as a lesson First, we are not spending enough time with the court. And

00:30:22--> 00:30:26

another thing that it does, from the benefits of reciting the plan out loud is

00:30:30--> 00:30:56

it wakes up others from their tiredness. So we said that it gives us the energy but if anyone who's listening to this, right, while we're reciting, it will wake them up, because they will hear it and their mind will start to work. Right and they will be paying attention to this corner and they will be focusing on the corner. Okay? So wakes up those who are tired and sleepy. And also

00:30:57--> 00:30:58

it

00:31:02--> 00:31:22

it, it helps those who are wasting their time come away from wasting their time, right. So people who are listening to someone else reciting the Quran, they are no longer wasting their time, because their time is now filled with something good and positive, which is the recitation of Quran. So see, these are all things that we benefit. And there's more. For example,

00:31:24--> 00:31:51

hearing the Quran being recited out loud or reciting it out loud ourselves. It's encouraging, right? It encourages us to keep doing more. So you might recite a whole page out loud, and you're like, yeah, I could do this. And you recite another page like, yeah, I can do this, again, you recite another page, it keeps encouraging you motivating you, right? You become encouraged with and then also what you read within it, of the meaning of the Quran, that encourages you to keep doing more as well. Now,

00:31:55--> 00:32:11

remember, we said do not disturb others, when reciting by raising your voice. So don't raise your voice to an extent that you are disturbing people around you that they become very uncomfortable with it. The last thing we want to be doing is bothering people

00:32:13--> 00:32:13

through the Quran,

00:32:15--> 00:32:24

okay, we want to we want to make sure that if someone is bothered, it's not something that's going to make them you know, be pushed away from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:32:27--> 00:32:56

So here we go. Let me just read this. I think an important point to mention for all of the benefits that you said is that many of them only apply if you know Arabic or have made an effort to learn it, or at least what the Quran means. Yes. And we're getting to that as well. But yes, I was I was going to mention that a few minutes, in fact, on the next page of what I was going to talk about, but yes, understanding Arabic is important. People say I'm not Arab, I don't need to know Arabic. But the end was revealed to us in Arabic.

00:32:57--> 00:33:35

It was revealed to us in Arabic, and reading the English translation of the Quran as much as it helps us to understand it. The reward is not as great as reciting Quran in Arabic, even though you don't understand it. Does that make sense? Now of course, we can go into nitty gritty, little individual examples that we don't want to go into right now. Right? We just for the sake of time, don't want to go into all these little examples of things like oh, I heard this verse and it changed my life. Yes. But you heard hundreds of other verses, or you read other hundreds of other verses in English as in the translation of it.

00:33:36--> 00:34:11

And it may not have done anything to you, but just hearing the call. And you if you even go on YouTube, you'll see videos of people, I think it was in New York City where you know, people have been playing headphones, and they just put out a coupon like, you know, just listen to this. And they listened to him like why is this amazing? You know, and some people will start crying. So people are just like, zoned into it. Like they don't want to let go of it. They just want to listen and listen or listen and keep listening to the core. And I know some people I've met people who have accepted them because of listening to the core and hearing just hearing the Quran. Right? I've met

00:34:11--> 00:34:35

people in all my travels and stuff who have embraced this them because of hearing the Quran being recited, it penetrated their hearts and they're like, this is the truth. I don't know what it is, but it is the truth and this is right and I want to become a Muslim. Right? And then they learned about feminism versus now. So it there's there's hate in it and it's important for us to you know, listen to the Quran and recite the Quran out loud as well. Now

00:34:40--> 00:34:59

from the benefits of reciting the Quran out loud is that it encourages a person to learn to pronounce the Quran and properly Okay, and we should all try to learn to recite the Quran properly. And one of the best ways like I said that that is achieved is by raising our voice when we are reciting it.

00:35:00--> 00:35:38

You know, I used to just sharing these tricks with you, if you put your hand like this and you just sort of leave in a space for air to go through it kind of sounds like you have a microphone on your mouth and you're listening to earphones, right? And if you do that, you'll notice that some of the some of the famous reciters of the Koran used to see them like audiobus if you would go like this because it helps you to listen to the Quran sent you when you hear the echo you hear yourself so much more clearly. And it's as though you're inside like this big bubble with you know, Echo and everything and you can you can, it helps you to learn where to your tongue and how to recite it

00:35:38--> 00:35:39

properly. Okay.

00:35:41--> 00:35:49

Um, in addition to that, I see my wife typing out a whole lecture there, I'm sorry, you're my wife and I respect you and all that I just can't read all that while I'm teaching.

00:35:57--> 00:36:10

One can reflect on the Quran by looking into the Quran and reading it. Right so if someone is reading through the Quran, the scholars a person can can reflect over and they can ponder over the Quran. But

00:36:12--> 00:36:39

if you are going to recite it, and move your lips in the recitation of the Quran, then you're fully maximizing from your recitation. So true recitation of the Quran is not just sitting there and looking at it with your eyes and reading it like you would read a novel for example, it's to recycle and using our Mel's in pronouncing it out loud. Okay, that's absolutely important. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said

00:36:42--> 00:36:51

to me, the other day chef chef, he and the hubby recite the urn, For verily it will come on the day of judgment

00:36:52--> 00:37:19

as an intercessor for its companions for the people of the Koran. So be from amongst the people of the Quran, and it will intercede for us on the Day of Judgment. So recite it as much as you can, someone might say but all I know is the last 10 suicides have occurred on our site the last 10 suitors over and over and over and beautified recitation and perfect your recitation and tried to imitate your favorite you know, reciter of love.

00:37:20--> 00:37:37

And just make sure that you are doing your best in your recitation of the Quran, through that that you are considered from the US House or from the people of the Quran. Those who require and will intercede for on the day of judgment

00:37:40--> 00:38:17

on a house on milk or earn fellow who he has an a while it has to be a hatchery and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said whoever recites a, which is like a letter from the fella who B he said, You will get one reward for every letter that is recited, one has to be actually unfairly hot and each reward is multiplied by 10. So therefore, for every single letter of the Quran that we recite, we are getting 10 rewards for it and remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said

00:38:18--> 00:38:26

in the Hadith about you know, the letters being multiplied, where he refers to an Islam meme, he says, I mean,

00:38:28--> 00:38:54

I don't mean that Alif Lam. Meem is a half, right? Only one half, man, half woman half. So Alice is a letter, lamb is a letter and meme is a letter. And each one of those is 10%. Right? And rewards. Therefore if you just recite three letters, that is 30 rewards right there already 10 letters is 100 rewards and 100 letters is what 1000 rewards

00:38:55--> 00:39:03

multiply everything by 10. So imagine if you recite the Quran, and once you will get the reward of reciting each one of those letters within the Quran, earn

00:39:05--> 00:39:49

tenfold? How much more do we want from Allah subhanho wa Taala. how merciful is Eliza legit. So my brothers and sisters, we went through a long list for the last 40 minutes, or maybe the last 30 minutes because the first 10 minutes we were just you know, warming up into the topic. The last half an hour, we just went through a long list of benefits of reciting the plan out loud. Therefore, the next time that we do recycle, and let's try to make sure that we are reciting it moving our mouth. The point there is that we're going to be moving our mouth that your your lips are moving, your tongue is moving the sound is coming out of your mouth. It's important for us to do that right

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

because the reward is going to be multiplied even more. And it helps us to focus and it helps to bring our heart back to life right it wakes our heart up. It keeps the sleep away. It

00:40:00--> 00:40:23

You know, encourages us, it motivates us, it allows us to ponder over for so many different benefits of, of reciting the Quran out loud. So we asked the last panel with Allah to make it easy for us to recite the Quran out loud in a way that is respectful to the Quran, and respectful to others, as well. And I said, to remind me about the Jamaat donation. And

00:40:25--> 00:40:54

our director, who is with us who lives in Seoul, South Korea, is reminding us about the thing that I said, Okay, so this thing made me chuckle or giggle a little bit right at the beginning of my clip. And it was actually live streaming. And I was like, man, I hope, I hope I don't just laugh. And I was holding this up, I really wanted to, I really wanted to call the brother out. But I didn't want to embarrass him in front of others. And I thought to myself at the time as well.

00:40:56--> 00:41:17

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam, when he was on the member, he would still correct people in front of others, he would make them an example for others to see that you should or should not do this. So what happened today in the German football was I, you know, the nn was called, I began to clip in them him that he learned the Oneness there any new one. So I look to my side, and I see in the distance

00:41:19--> 00:41:35

to the left of me, which is actually right in front of everyone in the gym, area of the busted. There's the donation, the electronic donation booth, and a brother got up right when I'm starting the football goes over and he starts doing his donation.

00:41:36--> 00:41:39

During the football, like, seriously,

00:41:41--> 00:41:44

I'm thinking in my head, like a loss of data says yes

00:41:45--> 00:41:52

or no, either no deal is what it means to me. At first Cerro Isla de la

00:41:53--> 00:41:54

by

00:41:56--> 00:42:25

Allah Subhana, Allah says to the believers, will you believe when the call for the Friday prayer happens? Right? So quickly make yourself to the Friday prayer, right? Get yourself to the gathering was out all day and leave off business. And I thought to myself, what is the Islamic ruling on the person who gets up during the Juma hookah and starts to give donations on the electronic donation?

00:42:26--> 00:42:27

You know, machine

00:42:29--> 00:42:54

is he doing there? Like these are the things that were running through my mind is this person actually, like, he's doing a business transaction, yes. But he's doing business with a lot. He's giving for the sake of a loss of power with data. He's not buying something else. But he is buying, he's buying his agenda because he's giving a donation. Right, and the loss of bandwidth and this isn't the only he but he buys from us our soul and our

00:42:57--> 00:42:58

our soul and

00:43:02--> 00:43:18

and our wealth, the more the more unforeseen, danella human agenda to our wealth in our school for the exchange of gender. So I thought to myself, this is an interesting muscle. His brother now is standing up donating during the Juma clip up on the electronic console.

00:43:19--> 00:43:24

And he's being a business transaction with a lot sports the ruling

00:43:25--> 00:43:31

sounds like a good thing I had my mask on because I had this huge smile on it was trying to contain myself. I'm like,

00:43:32--> 00:43:34

What is the Islamic ruling on this?

00:43:35--> 00:44:17

It is not bad. It's not like a business transaction or sale like buying and selling but it is at the end of the day as well. And it's not something you're supposed to be doing at that time. So this is where we look at the other things that profits in the long run, encouraged us or discouraged us from doing one of the things a Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam discouraged us from doing during the jump out football is to speak. Right is speaking permissible? Yes, but during the Juma hookah is not permissible to speak. It's also you know, disliked to sit in certain positions, right? You know, so there's certain things that we are allowed to do and certain things we are not allowed to do. And I

00:44:17--> 00:44:59

think that donating during the Juma hookah is one of those things that we should not do because it distracts the person, it takes their attention away from the hip and that's a reason why speaking is not permissible even a shout out to just indicate by going like this has been permissible during the job. Someone's speaking you should not look at them and go because that in itself is not permissible. And so because of that, I feel that getting up and donating TT tapping your card as donation is also not permissible during the drama club. And usually when I go to different massage at some massages, they will have these donation boxes that they you know, pass along the rows and

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

they use

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

Say pass it through the rows, or when you start your second cookbook, make the announcement for people to pass the boxes. And I always tell them, No, I am not going to pass these boxes or tell the people to pass the boxes during the demo, because they're supposed to be paying attention to the time for donation is before the hook or after them but not during the Okay, so that was something interesting, I thought I would share with you because you see how our Dean works. It's really interesting. You know, this brother got up to give a donation, I'm thinking to myself, should I stop him from donating? Well, I'd be stunned if I stopped someone from donating for the sake of Allah.

00:45:33--> 00:45:36

And then I thought to myself, you shouldn't be donating during this time.

00:45:37--> 00:45:41

It's a it's a transaction. But the transaction is being done with Allah

00:45:43--> 00:46:06

Subhana Allah, may Allah Subhana, Allah bless us all. And grant all of you the best of this life and the best of the hereafter. I mean, Zakouma level height, and I hope that you benefited from this class. I'll open it up for some q&a. I know some of you sometimes want to ask some questions. So I'll open it up for some q&a for all of you who joined us from other countries like a shot and idea and

00:46:10--> 00:46:23

who joined us from other countries around the world. Come to hate on me, Allah subhana wa Tada, bless every single one of you and your family and grant you, you know, hate and Baraka and goodness, everything that you do. So like I said, I'll open it up for some q&a.

00:46:27--> 00:46:29

See if there actually are some questions.

00:46:33--> 00:46:41

Okay, so core and recitation completion. We're going to talk about that next week. That's actually next week's topic and trauma. Okay, so we'll look at that next week.

00:46:43--> 00:46:44

Shall

00:46:47--> 00:46:52

almost drop that. Just bring this over here so I can see it properly.

00:46:54--> 00:47:07

Anyone that has any questions, type it in there if anyone else you know doesn't have any questions, or you don't want to listen to any of the questions being answered, feel free to enjoy your Friday night. Or if you're living in Malaysia, your Saturday morning in Australia, enjoy your Saturday morning Shama.

00:47:10--> 00:47:12

Someone's asking where I studied.

00:47:14--> 00:47:15

I'm still studying.

00:47:17--> 00:47:21

We never stop studying, right? The believers are supposed to study continue.

00:47:31--> 00:47:50

But generally, to answer your question, born and raised in Canada did a lot of my studies here but also did my Arabic language and bachelors in Islamic theology and dalla in Medina, Saudi Arabia, and then also did my Master's in Islamic Studies in

00:47:52--> 00:48:04

in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. And growing up when we were learning that we were here in GTA were from Israel, but we came to an Islamic school a data room or mother here in Ajax,

00:48:06--> 00:48:13

which doesn't exist now in Ajax. It's moved to a different location. But yeah, that's where we studied.

00:48:16--> 00:48:17

A lot, you know,

00:48:19--> 00:48:23

a lady can hide I mean, oh, yeah, come out if by

00:48:28--> 00:48:35

any other questions, no questions from my wife? I'll probably get home and it should be like, why didn't you? I think, typing out a bunch of things.

00:48:36--> 00:49:12

Too much to read. Can't read that. Can't read essays while I'm teaching. Okay. Anyone else? Have questions? I just wanted to say I recently found these classes and loving them from Mississauga. hamdulillah share it with someone else as well. Chawla share it with someone else. And remember, I do have the as the Friday night classes, and they do have this Sunday night classes on fic. So Sunday, we learned and we just started the chapter on marriage last Sunday. So go and check it out. And a lot of data the recording is up online on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. And

00:49:15--> 00:49:17

join us on Sunday as well. Eight o'clock.

00:49:23--> 00:49:25

Okay, here's a good question.

00:49:27--> 00:49:28

Come around is asking.

00:49:30--> 00:50:00

Where you coming on? Just to double check Are we allowed to recite out loud during it praying individually and without disturbing others. So if we're praying individually, without disturbing others are we allowed to recite aloud so you're allowed to recite out loud in the prayers that are permitted to recite out loud fudger Mongoloid America. Even if we're praying alone, we should recite those prayers a little bit out loud and you can whisper them right so that you hear and if anyone is next, you are ready.

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

You from the gym for example that are believers. You can join it in a prayer with you as well. Okay.

00:50:07--> 00:50:10

And from the prayers that we're supposed to recite silently we should recite silently.

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

I mean well yeah

00:50:18--> 00:50:20

all right, so it seems like that's it for now.

00:50:21--> 00:50:27

Well, you can have the law, just like cocaine and for for your time and your patience.

00:50:28--> 00:50:35

We ask Allah subhana wa tada to allow us to continue to learn more and more question Am I reading I'm not hungry.

00:50:38--> 00:50:39
