I have the Holy Quran.
let me immediately fall into the discussion of what this verse means.
Now, there basically may be more than three things, but generally they are the philosophers and the great Judas of Islam considered to have two meanings.
One is the physical meaning. And the other one is a spiritual meaning. And these three things are is the heart,
the mind or the brain, and the knifes the person.
And they say that the apple, the first reading of Achilles, this message you have inside your head that we sometimes use and sometimes misused. And if you say we only use about 5% of our brain, during our lifetime, 95% lays dormant. We don't use it, no one can see the results was at some time.
So Apple has that actually is the brain, the physical brain that is inside the inside of the
skull of the human being. The other meaning of Apple, the spiritual meaning is that which distinguishes between the right and wrong.
Which animals don't have. They have the physical brain. But an animal cannot distinguish between right and wrong. I'm not going to say there some of us also distinguish between that that'd be a bad analogy to make. The third one is the nuts. And you know, nuts is used in many verses of the Quran, Allah talks about nafsa Amar to be to left so Lola the knifes is that small little man that sits at the back of a brain and it tells you press that button to the code they don't worry, I'm with you. It's okay, it's fine. Nobody's going to find out just do it quickly and get away from it. That is cold enough to have enough of course is the person have you all purchase gold units.
And the third one the most important and of course, the and the heart. Now, the heart also has two meanings. It has a physical meaning. It refers to that pump that is in the air that pumps blood to the body I must be careful to divert my medical terms I see a lot of doctors here. Be careful about our say these things. But generally the heart is a pump that pumps the blood.
But the heart The and allows are the only talks about when he talks about revelation. He talks about the revelation as it connects with the heart revelation is never used in conjunction with a word Akin
or brain or intellect. The connection in the Quran is always made between revelation why and
so what is what is what is what is the spiritual meaning of the spiritual meaning of culture is that instrument
through which Allah subhanaw taala speaks to the human being which allows one wants to send that message to us allows Mohan tala uses the heart of all the vital spiritual organs through which allows father reveals His revelation. So a lot of our talks in the Quran about Allah will be that we revealed the revelation on your heart or Mohammed Salah loudness
and today inshallah, we will see that this
word nude or light which is mentioned in in this verse of surah, to know that it also involves the heart. Now how does Allah describe this allows Margaret says, matter of Nori kamisha Allah says he is no, he's light is like a niche.
What is a niche? a niche is a is a it's a semicircular indentation in a wall, you've seen it, it's a niche. People put flowers in there, they put things in there
they have it by the front door, some avid inside their homes. But generally the mean the use of the niche was to be used for like people used to put a candle in there or they used to put a lamp in there. Why? Because of the fact that if you shine a light or the circular, reflective,
white or aluminium, then the light shines much brighter, it throws its light very wide. So allows harmless is that Allah light is like a niche. We have this bar and in this niche is a light and allows for the first of the word life
as Miss bar, and the word Sumo comes from the same root in Arabic. So Sumo
5g is the time when the light and if you up at that time you will see as the sun rises, it throws it's like like out of a niche. It throws it right across the horizon.
There's 5g to sodic and 5g rule Kevin, the true dawn and the false dawn. The false Dawn is what? What What is the light of the false No, no does it look like
ah could the false dawn which is when
Okay, it's not going to lead you're gonna get into trouble the two of us if we're going to start committing ourselves to this, let's say the false Dawn is the first door first time the light he arises it goes straight up.
He goes straight up. Where is the truth known the light goes this is the time of fudging the light goes across it lights up the whole horizon. So alfonzo talks here about the morning the mitzvah soup of the morning light while in his mouth is to Georgia Allah says this light that is inside this niche in the wall
enclosed in a glass enclosure like a lamp plus lamp you have the wick inside the lamp and the wick is lit. And
the reason there is a glass around it is because if there is a wind and it blows against it will not disturb the IT WILL NOT extinguish the light nor disturb the light. The light will be very steady. Even if there's a wind blowing.
can go kaboom Do re allows for handler says that this light is like a very bright star.
Now there are two words for star in Arabic. There's najem one namida our
Polish new June and there is Coca Cola Kim. No coca is the very bright light, very bright star probably a star which is near to us. You know the nearest star to us is how many? How many? How many are far away is the nearest star?
The nearest star or photo is the nearest star. The sun is 96 million
they start it's no no no in the name. I want to know how far it is away from the nearest eyes are far away.
That is the sun. The sun is 93 million mark I know my
the nearest star to us.
Samuel it is away.
Now you make me doubt also.
I don't know if it's to 2 billion light years away or 2 million light years away. I seem to think to like his
a couple of million more than what I thought it was. Yeah, two light years away. The nearest start all this to light is what does that mean? It means that
you have to travel
the speed of light
for two years to reach that star.
Now light travels at 184,000 miles per second.
And at 4000 miles per second light travels at that speed. So you can imagine how far light travels in a year. It's called the light here. That is the nearest star to us and there are billions of stars out there.
Okay, so Allah says that Allah talks about maybe like the Southern Cross, very, very bright light allows for you to be in charge at the mobile Katyn
zaytuna. I'm going to I'm going to just stop here and give some sort of seed of what I've said so far, allows for 100 talks about a niche. Now, if you look at your chest
it's exactly the same shape as a niche. It's shaped like that.
shaped exactly like a niche.
So we have
the spiritual niche, which is your breast, your chest of the human being,
and allows one to compare your ribcage to a niche in which there is a lamp which gives of light and allows what Allah talks about that this light is within a glass chamber. It's surrounded by glass chamber, as if allows for them to say that this light your heart is the glass chamber and
Inside the heart is this light.
This light of allows formulas inside this heart. And
this light is placed in such a manner that it doesn't only shine for you, it can shine out to others also, you can share your light with other people. Like the lunches is like with those around like about room.
And you can light up light about area around so the light that is in your heart can also light up things around you. And just as our last one that talks to us about the benefits of a man, we know he man his mind is right here in the heart just says Allah talks about the benefits of Eman allows the holder also warns us about the dangers that lurk around. That will affect our email.
The danger of what we hear the danger of the tongue, the danger of the site, danger of where we go. All these things affect this light affixes this light which allows for talks about
and allows one that talks about the zoo Georgia, Georgia is
the glass. Now many times as you know if the oil runs low,
and the wicked black what happens to the glass, the glass turns black.
So suddenly our light is not tended to it will also darken
the glass which allows let's put around that light which is the heart of men.
I've said that
a lot on the comparison, this light that is in the heart, Allah compares it to the brightest star in the sky. Why does Allah make the analogy with a star or look at have said it's as bright as the sun was bright as the moon but Allah specifically uses the star.
Because when do you need light? Do you need light in the morning when the sun rises? No. When do you need light, need light in the darkness. You need light at night when it's dark. Light is no use for you in the day. You don't need it. Unless you can hide yourself in some very dark place. So Allah, Allah says,
I am making an analogy with a star because I want you to look up into the heavens.
And this was the habit of the Navy salatu salam, the Nabi sallallahu wasallam, the first thing he did when he got up for further in the mornings, what did he do?
He would go outside and look up into the sky.
And you'd read
in the same article, was the lovely lady with the Ayatollah Ali Alba, that whole last part of this surah he would read Well, last one, it says that very early in the creation of the heavens and the earth.
There is a sign for those who believe you would acknowledge
the greatness of allows.
That's what we should do. And if we can't No, don't I you should look up into the sky and look at the stars. In other words, in fact, what it means is you must get up for fudger when the stars are still out.
So you can you can admire the creation of Allah who's kind of water.
So just as we look up, and he mamarazzi for dinner, Raji in his Tafseer, he talks about this, and he says
young Luna Illa, Allah subhana
wa Taala. He says, the people of the earth they look up at the sky, and they see the dazzling of the sky, they see the light of the sky, they see the moon, they see the stars, they see the practice of the sky. And he says people are amazed at this.
And he says,
Why are you Santa?
And those who inhabit the heavens, they look down on the earth.
And they look at all the shining lights down here.
And what lights are we talking about? Now, we talking about the light which allows for how to put in the heart of every single human being, it doesn't matter if he's a Christian or a Jew or you or a
or whatever he or she may be, every person has been given this light
and that is why there are good people in this earth. There are very good people they may not be Muslim, they may not be. They may be Jewish, they may be Christian, they may be agnostic, they may be atheist, but they don't sway. They didn't use foul language. They don't catch you.
They don't see a
pill of a good life. Many of them don't drink because they know the evils of it. Lots of Indonesia pork although the religion allows him to do that.
And that is the light which allows for hardness given to lots of people. So when that light meets the light of Revelation, the light of Islam, there is immediately a connection made and that person then accepts Islam. So allow founder says and Sacral Chakra Dina Raji says so the angels when they look down of course people have the deck which lives in the heavens and other angels when they look down they look at us and they see these they see the light all these flickering lights in every single home in every single road.
Then our last one it goes further and allow toggle it says you can't do that in mobile rocketing zaytuna allows one that says
this land is lit by a tree
this land that is inside your heart. The slime that's inside the niche is led by a tree in a way this tree. This tree inside the house goes not inside on the outside down from the outside.
In a lot of times and it says describe this tree allows one that says number one it is a mobarak tree mubaraka What is mobarak pin
the energy for this light counter of Blizzard three and Allah names the three
which is a an olive tree and what is the word for for oil in Arabic, Zayn and the word for Allah they tune so the Arabs considered the oil of the tune to be the purest oil. So if you live in Arabic And like I did, every meal comes with
with it's all avoid. It doesn't have olive oil, it's not a meal. Arabs love the olive oil
because it's very solemn today that we can get the kind of olive oil a day that they used to live on.
Remember when you buy olive oil in the shop you must be careful what you buy don't just look at extra virgin olive oil nothing that's extra was not extraversion all
especially if it comes in Spain or it comes from Italy or they mixing with so many things Panama.
In South Africa, olive oil,
people who produce pure olive oil, those bottles are stamped is a stamp on them that says
special stamp you must look for that sample the cost of the texture. But if you want to really
have pure olive oil with your food, whatever you sell it or whatever, it's very coarse it's it's the oil, a lot of fun talks about it in the Quran Allah you mentioned the word zaytoun in the Quran. So it's important for us to find out and to have the pure a tool in each Allah when we when we have it. So Allah, Allah says that this and what is the word Baraka mean? What What is the word?
Baraka Baraka means as the yard of your size, extra goodness, when we talk about Baraka we talk about goodness way beyond way way beyond what is in our hand. I remember my grandmother always make this example of my grandmother you know, those years
grandmother seems to tie the coins in a
in a in a
in a handkerchief and they put the handkerchief Of course, it wouldn't be the safest place to I then capture from the 13 children with the head
but apart from the 13 children who is the head I mean, there was a lot of grandchildren I mean we will occur a hell of a lot of grandchildren. And of course the is a place where you always go to go to your grandmother's house there you get you get spoiled like today I mean that tradition carries on we spoil our grandchildren in our grandmother spoil us and so that tradition will carry on until the end of time and to the province of Southern sport has an unforeseen event and that will just how what life is about so we never wish to go to my grandma always used to ask for
not five ran nothing then
Not a penny a quarter Penny
What does it call fobbing?
A quarter Penny, you could go to the shop and buy one stock for a quarter penny. And you know that code that star was like, like heaven and earth, you know you you get that quarter penny. Mashallah. And
later on in life when I grew bigger, I mean, I I used to watch my uncle and my auntie was to come there, you know, and then this one was rent money and you could see the old lady goes into the room and, you know, they checked and you know, and she's only got children, he gets a pension. And anytime that he needs to come out, and this is to give you enough from the handkerchief, you know, for ourselves farthings off pennies, okay.
And somehow that Ankita just there's always money in the bank is
just somehow he was always there was always Barack in it and I'm sure that Baraka was way beyond because of their lifestyle way beyond I mean today
you know, you
know today somebody asked for money say I'm gonna make EFT transfer you don't have cash I don't carry cash around me when your child wants something you say but you know I don't have cash in my pocket. Children of course think today that the card just produces money from the ATM you know that of course, you know that children don't know that you have to put money in the bank before I even get the thing you just put that plastic so Michelangelo asked me Paul, just give me the plastic It's alright, you know, you don't have to give me money. You know.
So a lot of talks about the three that feeds this light that is in the heart of every single human being. In Allah formula says that. There's this, what feeds us like this oil that feeds us that is so powerful, and so much Baraka that even though even the oil itself has light in it, even the oil itself is light.
And it is it is it allows this light comes from a tree which is
the physical trees a tune, tree of the tune of all of
but what is this light? What do you think is this light which the light is now what what is this light?
Because light is not from here lasher
whatever via Allah describes the light Allah Allah says that this light doesn't come from the east nor from the west.
Now if you don't divide the world into
then the world consists of a West and East Iran and talks about east and west. You won't find the word north in the Quran or south in the Quran talks about east and west because if you divide the world into that covers the whole universe, in fact, the east and the west. So Allah Allah says that the source of this light your spiritual light is in your heart doesn't come from the east or the west.
So what is this light?
What do you think? Is this light?
Give me a name for this light?
Why revelation? No.
The non Muslim Jewish man or the Christian man or the atheist? I don't think he's good costimulation to that like what what is that like that last one talks about?
No, because you can lose your mind.
But the light remains the
what is it that will remain with you until your Oh, yes.
That live which are lost or misplaced in the Euro, that connection which you have with allows for holidays euro and then of course will never die. Yes, albina de Mayo Medina la sala says that light will be will guide you on the Day of Judgment.
That that light of Allah placed in here, that light will guide you until the other day of judgment will be a money and to your right side. So that light will always be there. And that is the the what what what the what the Allah Goldy the spiritual vision.
You can see lots of lots of talks in the Quran about Basilan
that you can see with the other eye you can see what the eye of your heart
sometimes you can close your eyes and you can see what the eye of your heart and that was put inside as a spiritual I was putting inside us
so we are able to decipher the message of the Quran.
Now I'm giving you the short lesson about the note because I want to make make a point to you this afternoon.
And faculty daraz he talks about this and he says that
it says the art is the receptacle
The light of revelation comes to the roof which is in the heart
and if these two meet
and they all I'ma say that this perfect light
comes out every time you make Salah. Every time you make Salah you are in communication with a source of revelation which is allows 100
And every time you do good
It is as if your heart lights up when you make Salah. It is as if your heart lights up when you give sadaqa your heart lights up when you say good words and do good deeds.
But it's only if we understand
what the Quran is trying to tell us.
And this is the essence of what I'm to speak to you this afternoon.
Why is it that
Muslims have become alienated
from the meaning of the Quran.
If we look at the lives of the Sahaba olives of Salaam
they understood the light which came from allows harmattan.
They also understood
that allow founder tells us that he has not only sent down the book, but it's also sent down hikmah.
These two these two came together the book and the Wisdom what is the wisdom? The Wisdom is the meaning behind the revelation.
And then me sort of Laura Selim tells us that
the wonders of the Quran will never end.
Until the day of piano, people will discover new things about the Quran
and allow for the disclosure to beautiful in the last part of Soraka which we read on a Friday morning.
I tend to read a lot in my journal Salah
Locanda barrameda nikolina thrombey
allow father says that if the ocean
was turned into ink,
and if allow father to create another ocean, automated ink,
you would never be able to write the beauty and the meaning of the Quran.
So you have two oceans of the of the dunya two such oceans full of ink, you would not be able to complete the beauty that the Quran can provide for humanity.
Why is it that we in this day and age
cannot even write empty one ballpoint pen in writing about the Quran?
even necessary for us to know the Quran to understand the Quran?
Or is it only necessary for us to know what Allah says what is haram and halaal how to make Salah how to fast or to go for Hajj? Exactly. Is that all? Is the Quran only been
around a book of law a book of rules, a book of regulations, is a just a manual of how to live with a motor neuron in that
capacity motor neuron.
Do you think you know it's possible that now in 2016
that Muslims have developed a new science connected to the Quran? Do you think it's possible?
You think it's possible that we can now devote we have now developed a new science, a new theory about the facade
It was not written about in the last 1400 years.
It has to be like that, because Allah says two oceans
of ink do not live way but the other words the Quran will reinvent itself the Quran is not a book of information. The Koran is a book of transformation.
It must not inform you in math transform you the Quran did not inform the to have a transform them.
Sometimes we used to listen to one verse of the Quran he transformed in Ahmad listen to one verse of the Quran. He transformed him
Because their hearts were ready for the poorer
today we have a situation where if you go to Medina University of any way and you say you're going to go to Kalia
Are you go to data alone wherever you go? And you say no which What are you going to do? sherea? Or are you going to do? How do you say, Well, I'm going to go to the forum. So what do they teach you in alioto Cora, they teach you how to memorize the Quran, and how to read the Quran with Tajweed and other we have a party.
So the world is flooded with parties we have at our high schools, paves academies. We have big thick, thick academies that we we collected millions and millions of rands for these
types academies. Somebody came to me during the week and said he went to one of these schools where there is a fig Academy.
And there was some material that Bismillah or something, some something with a graduate or some ceremony that they do.
Kids get together and they read what they've memorized the Quran. And this person said to me that he was he was at the school, and was like in between and kids were playing the young boys in the courtyard, or this half his boys is learning flavors. They were playing football somewhere in the school, and she came past and they were swearing that you never heard before.
She said she's never heard those kinds of swear words that we use by these children while they will play and despite the fact that she wanted to stop them, they just care. And the more she was saying the more they was married.
And she told them she said I will tell you teacher
principal wasn't there.
And I think to myself, This is what happens. I mean, sometimes parents come to me they say to me, you know, my child has half his but he doesn't want to go to the masjid
my child has half his he's forgotten the Quran doesn't want to do anything to do with it for seven years Yeah. Which is driving up and down to the harvest school is when you were 10 years old, you know yet Oh, Quran half easy, is to make retaurant all the weddings and whatever else now that is big.
doesn't want anything to do. Why not? I mean, if you teach a child to read a book in German to memorize it, on benefit is you gonna gain from it.
If he doesn't understand what benefit is.
So havalim salam, memorize the Quran in order to implement the poorer look and feel lolly Baraka.
they memorize the Quran certainties. So many of whom would not have it
was not abubaker was not despite the fact that they spend our lives with an IV sauce Allah, despite the fact that they were directly revelation was revealed with the Quran was revealed. Because they did not memorize a verse until and unless they are practiced adverse to the fullest, then they will go to the next verse.
So if you really want to have and we must seriously consider this in machines to talk about it. I mean, those people who are in charge of these institutions,
that when we talk about foreign we must talk about half alpha, that's good. Nothing wrong with that. But it's meaningless unless you understand what to do, unless you understand what you're reading, unless you have some idea of the connection between
the heart and the revelation.
I want to tell you about this new science
is a man by the name of hamidah, Dean,
Ferrari, when he was either Pakistan, he was an Indian live maybe about 100 years ago
and yet started doing research
on what is called
order of the Quran,
what we may call the coherence of the Quran school, the theory established developed into the theory of the coherence of the Quran. And what is this? What is this coherence of the Quran?
There is a view amongst Muslims, and particularly Muslims who read the Quran only in English.
The Quran seems to be a book of verses which sometimes doesn't fit into each other. This verse picks about that, and suddenly it's in verse about that. And suddenly it's a verse about this. And it's a repetition of the other verse about Musan again about Musa and again about an ISA and then again about the center.
And so the Koran seems to be a book that is not coherent. And we know that in Quranic speech, Grant speaks to
And we know what we think of people with a speaker named Otto urines. severely mega Falcon burgo. Maybe we should say psychiatrists, you know, he speaks like this and he speaks like that.
So there are people who say, then that if we say that people who speak incoherently doesn't make any sense,
will allow them to send us a book
that is incoherent.
When only one thing and the birds in one secret, works totally with each other, completely coherent with each other, completely bored with each other. If the whole universe is coherent, if the whole universe is order, wouldn't allow us to put absolute order in the absolute coherence in the Quran.
Wouldn't that be the case?
There are many people come on, am I even today say that the order of the Quran the order in which the students was put was done by Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
That was his contribution. But it's quite clear
that Allah is that the order of the Quran from a nurse?
No, from outside you had to announce that order was given to Muhammad Allah Salaam bellows, Hamilton.
Why because that is how the Sahaba memorize it when was revealed was revealed in that order, every Ramadan gibreel used to come and read the whole Quran to them in that order, from alpha to selectiveness. So they there's that order in the order. And that order is put in our last panel, that is the order of the
of the Surah Surah of the Quran. And we have the the sutras which revealed in Medina in the sutras which revealed in Makkah. Now
what were the reasons that Muslims became alienated from this Quran? Why is it we don't understand the Quran, we know nothing. In fact, we know very little about them.
There are non Muslims in the West who know more about the Quran, then maybe all the data put together.
And I'm saying this because
this is my field of research. I'm doing research on this and I, I read about it. They are non Muslim scholars in the West in America and Britain, in Berlin in Germany.
That no more than all the scholars in Cape Town put together.
Yes, we may have memorized the Quran, we may read it well, but we don't understand. And that is why all our Quran schools are only about memorization and not teaching the Quran itself.
And we need to look at this we need to ask ourselves, why are we doing this? What is the point of doing this?
And I told you I spoke to you about the professor at Kingston University or was it King
Kong It was a name now
real American whitey
who I think goes in Super specialist in his field, I think engineering or something and he wants to do something different. And he decided he was going to
he was going to study Arabic.
And then he learned Arabic poetry. And eventually he came to the Quran.
And when it came to the Quran,
and this, Norman
What is his name now?
He said that he he spoke to this, this professor and professor told him what he had done is that he had learned in the classical language of Arabic
at an advanced stage, of course.
And he said he had discovered
that the Quran could be from no one except from allowes pinata.
And he one day said with Norma and he said to him,
I want to show you something about the Quran.
And what he did was,
he took the first verse of a Torah
and the last verse of the same surah.
And he proved to Norman that the theme of the first verse of the Torah was the same as the theme as the last verse of the surah. And the second verse of the surah was the same as the penultimate verse of the answer. We went to the ultralightweight meeting in the middle. In other words, the whole Torah was coherent
refers to everything of birth. That delves into the next verse, every surah followed on to the next surah. These are not just these are individuals who are as they actually form a complete hole. And every time you read this to Norman Norman, can only be from Atlanta.
You mean his American accent can only be from God, just human beings can't do that it's impossible for human beings to do this, to have this novel. It's called the theatre of another vocal urines. So, studies are being done on the Quran to look at the coherence of the Torah.
And different sources are being looked at, you know, when, when we look at the Quran, as students of the Quran, you have to know classical Arabic, and more than classical Arabic, you have to know
pre Islamic Arabic, which is called pure Arabic, the Arabic which the people spoke in the time of jelenia. And we know they were great poets. So if you want to become a linguist, which I'm not, I'm not an Arabic specialist, if you want to go into the field of land, which Arabic land which if you go to university,
Islamic University, and you want to learn the Arabic language, the first thing we'll teach you is they teach you the pure Arabic in poetic form.
Like we want to do English one or English two, or English three at university, they teach you, Shakespeare.
Shakespeare is supposed to be the purest expression of English, let us not to the marriage of true minds, admit impediment Love is not love, which alters when it alteration finds, and so forth and so on, you know, these beautiful English words are put together. So similarly, if you want to learn pure Arabic, you have to learn
pre Islamic Arabic. And what happened was that the scholars used to take this language, because that was spoken by the Navy. So some of them obviously, for 40 years, he spoke that language, that was his language, Arabic, he spoke for 40 years. So Allah, Allah communicated with him in that same language, I couldn't use a different language, but use exactly the same language, so that they would understand the nuances of the language.
And that's for all he said, but there was another kind.
He said, there was another kind of communication that the Arabs used in pre Islamic Arabia, and that was
who they also used to give lectures in a pure Arabic. And he says, this, Adam Habib, Dini, says, The Quran is nothing but a book of lectures, Allah speaks to us. And he says, We don't only have to look at pre Islamic poetry, but also to the way people delivered lectures in pre Islamic Arabia. What does he mean by that? In any lecture, I will tell you, if I give you if I give a lecture, if I speak to my students in a class, I would look around, I would look that when I look that way, and I would see that Haji lay in a booth today, and I would speak on a certain subject, and I would I would turn to that personnel to think well, I'm sure that person has a question to ask him because he knows
about the thoughts in the moon. So I'm speaking about the star and the moon. So I look at him and say, he's gonna ask the question, so I look in his direction. So when I speak about the moon, and the thoughts, I would look in his direction.
So any person who speaks gives a lecture, that is how you speak your students in the class as well, if you have, if you have five people are on your table now after Juma and one is a doctor and we speak about the fact that you're going to,
you're going to speak to your son or your daughter that sits there, that's a doctor, you're not going to look to the accountant, you can look to Him automatically, they will tell you that it works. And when we have an example of this.
So this new science is made to discover what the coherence of
this book is like the universe it's a it's a, it's a complete whole. And it's done by the by it was sent by a loss Hunter. Remember that book. And this was not just for yesterday, today and tomorrow, to send forever.
It couldn't be read in general.
And it has to be an inspiration for us until the end of time, and you have to renew itself, and he has to transform us and transform the world. That's why I said and I say this again, transformation of the dean will come from the west
because the East
they've set themselves alight both spiritually, physically
and allow Saunders guiding that part of the world and as I said, the Arabs and the Muslims in the Middle East received revelation from Allah directly through a sir Musa Mohammed Salam they could all the prophets, the waste code no got nothing. What did Allah give them? Allah gave them knowledge. Allah gave them the ability to read, understand and research
The Netherlands is such an anti muslim country.
The University of the Netherlands just completed the project, which was funded by the government on the tuxedos for
a two to six year project, to look at certain parts of the poorer to study and of course, they have to circulate this to everybody.
The same thing happens in America the only places where no money is put for Islamic education for foreign is in the Muslim world.
And amongst Muslim communities,
give you an example of,
of our understanding of the Quran can be affected by the way we see the coherence of the Quran. Give us an example of the Battle of brother after the Battle of mother. They were prisoners taken and prophet consulted with the harbor Abu Bakr said, these prisoners here a surah Allah take ransom and send them home, that they pay ransom send them home. Omar said no, no, no, no, these are dangerous people. They came here to kill yo Mohamed Salah you have to put into this world, the prisoners of war we call it prisoners of war. They are enemies.
But some of them are brothers, you know, physically they will same father, our fathers, you know, our cousins or uncles.
Give him a chance, take random from them and say thank you.
So whenever I send them to ransom, and of course there were other things that they had to do there to teach people to read and write and they would be set free if they didn't have money.
And then Allah, Allah revealed
about this incident, a verse in the Quran.
And the first step is to reduce
the hire, under hire to do what la who you read.
This way says,
And you covered the things of this world
but allows for how Taylor wants for you the era.
Now every single move faster every single person was interpreted. This verse says that this verse is a verse, which is against the Nabi sallallahu sallam, it castigates him,
it tells him what you did was wrong. Because you want the things of this world and not
every single facet system.
But the question that we ask ourselves is, to whom was this verse addressed? Who is a gritty of this verse? Allah speak to.
And we can only understand that who is under speaking do by looking at the whole Torah, and every verse in that surah not only at that particular verse in the context of the prisoners, where money was taken from them.
And in fact, now we know that because the Quran is a is a hotbed, it speaks. It speaks and it didn't only speak to the Navy's autonomy at that time and mother, it also spoke to the nonroutine said Mother, to Allah says that, when Allah Allah says, You want the things of this world Allah was talking not to the Prophet, Allah, Allah, but we're talking to the Quran
that you want because obviously,
Allah wasn't telling abubaker you wanted money for the answer because you wanted the money. Because abubaker gave all his money for the sake of a loss. So how would you Why would you want money? The Navy wasn't interested in money, he died he only had the little cup that in regard to that all he had, that's all the profit motive behind not one day, not one cent did he have in his in his in his position, everything that he gave away before he died. That's all he had. So in altona says you want the things of this world you could definitely not have been pointed to the Mohammed Salah Abubakar nada de la Masala Dosa.
He was Allah address he was standing is
the divide face towards the Croatian saying you are the people.
You are the people that want this world. That's why and the fact that prophets of Allah
and Allah are going to still watch out for you.
Look at the mercy of Allah, they were just going to kill him Allah says he wanted you all but I, your Allah, your God still wants you to get the afia and many of them became Muslim.
Abu superyacht, for example, was
became Muslim. Lots of the others became Muslim became very soldiers of Islam.
So what I'm saying to you is
and the verse that always strikes me is
always go straight to the heart
is a versatile certification.
We allow with the visa salaamu says the deaf tiama a b will say What color? The messenger will say. Your A B, oh my lord in na comi
Khurana Majora Oh my Lord, my people took this on as a joke.
Meaning what? My people did not take this Koran seriously mentioned the prophet will not say he will complain to Allah, their piano will say Allah, my people didn't take the series.
We have we spend millions of rands on Quran competitions, it's become like a sixth pillar of Islam
with no understanding,
effects expend that money and put it into a real karate school with children get taught. And we must understand today that our children need to be taught the Koran from school, from high school.
And when I say these toward the quarter, I mean the meaning of the Quran
I mean, the essence of the Quran,
that Quran which will transform them make good human beings out of them, that will touch the hearts.
I mean, I just
some different way this morning
to shift in fact.
And he said that some girl
who has had our Muslim girl, she was married and she had children.
And she became a
mandala. And she now works for a Christian ministry.
In fact, the chef is related to to this girl.
And she went on the radio, the CCT in the sea, this Christian radio station, and she had a whole program on the station. And she she was talking about how she had this Muslim husband and
the scholars of Islam they all Armand mentioned my name.
some reason or other, that's why I that's how I came to be found that, you know, this is one of the people who, when women come to complain to them, they tell them to go back home, you know, and I was in an abusive relationship. And so this Islam, you know, is a man made religion that for men and men get all the things which they get, you know, boys get them, the priests always tell them, the women go back home, even if they get beaten up a second and a third third.
So I was I will say to myself in about whose fault is my fault,
I take responsibility for that. I must take responsibility for it. I have to take responsibility. Somebody has to take responsibility, I speak to you.
Most of you only get your dean via a Friday Juma that when you get it, if I say to you, if I give you the impression that all the good Muslims, I did all the good news is definitely the time with an
agenda and with the bad people. Who are the bad people say, Well, you all are the bad people. You're never gonna
cut your limbs off. They do this and do that. You know, men can marry four wives. And
this is this is the kind of Islam and the young man who sits here the young person who says he says, shows impossible to go to jail. I mean, really? No, you know, if I only pray twice a day, that's it. I'm not never gonna see Jenna never three times even I'm never gonna see gentlemen, four times even I'm never gonna see gender.
And those people who love that that time, they saw the profit, they lose companies, some of them also not going to gender.
Some of them even 14 jobs are not indigenous to difficult faith.
Why do we do this? Because you really don't have an understanding.
Me and you and all of us together I think
of how we should spread this faith and what this faith really means.
I mean, a man came to the Navy Salam and he said,
Oh prophet of Allah Teach me just one thing. Just one thing, just teach me one thing for
To take me through my old life
que la ilaha illallah wa stucchi Professor Sallam said, c'est la ilaha illAllah in San Fermin. It the Providence aim is pray five times a day to do this. No property. Say that and stand firm on it.
Soraka what you read every those those jets, it was in the cave, those boys in the cave, what do they say? They didn't know anything. There was no talaga time they didn't fast. There was no fasting that time. All they said was we will not worship anything besides our low to harmattan. Bus. That's all they do. That's all they had. That's all they do. That's what they had.
So it is not the deal. That is harsh. It is not the deal. That is difficult. It is we that have made it like that. That is how we portray Islam. We make Islam so difficult. People think you know, generally difficult men and young people even more so for me, it's easier because I'm older now I can pray more than what I played when I was young. But a young man who maybe just
you know, if you tell him Boy, you don't pray five times a day, you know, your chances are very, very slow.
So I think it's important the way in which, and this is the problem with Muslims today. And it's not only this go that, that things like that. Most young Muslims in the world today even in the Arab world.
I mean, I was in Egypt that was 1973.
I the baker that I was to buy my bread from you know, they have bakeries. They buy bread from the bakery. And there was a chap who work there. His name was Nabeel. And I used to buy bread from him every single morning.
And Ramadan came and I got the first warning I got to him. And I'm not sure the sun is up already. You know, I didn't know why I was buying bread, but and I said he was eating and I said to him, you know, you're eating us.
A spirit, I shall
see you Ramadan. He says I'm a Sikh to date. Just like I played
this in Egypt. This is not Cape Town, Egypt, this is diamonds immediately. What are many years ago was a long time ago.
So I say to myself, I'm responsible if I'm the father than I'm responsible for the federal government responsible for the way these funds have avoided treating kids at the hips Academy. Don't their parents, don't the parents teach them that o'clock is more important than memorization of the Quran.
The prophets of Salaam at 12 o'clock before he before the Quran came to him that comes in the first order of preference. He was first known as El amin, before you knew Laila Lama.
He was close to trustworthy.
Now what do we say? No mahasiswa Oh, nine na colada. This does not happen. This was happened. This was I
unless given us mind, we must adapt to the world in which we learn to bring people closer to Islam, purchase them away from Islam. So May Allah guide us in sha Allah.
May Allah give that those of us who have wealth, spend your wealth wisely.
Spend your work don't just give to everybody who comes to your door. No, don't do that.
If you are few people who have come together and say this is just a spoken about this, we need to bring the corral closer to us closer to our children. We need to do research on this we need to link up with other people in other parts of the world. Otherwise we're going to be left behind what our climates and our data and whatever else we do. We are going to be living I boy 300 years behind everybody else. Because our essential the core of our laws, that which will take us to gender that we've lost, that we really need. So I pray to allow father to guide us inshallah, to give us scholars and Allah from our own children from us, it will rise it will bring us back inshallah, to
the Quran and Sunnah of Muhammad Salallahu
Salam Salam aleikum, WA
