00:00:46--> 00:00:53

This is our second chapter, or second part of our lecture on

00:00:54--> 00:00:55

ease,

00:00:56--> 00:01:07

Corona an opportunity of visited catastrophe. But more so I want to change the heading of these two thoughts by calling it understanding the

00:01:09--> 00:01:13

understanding the so last week we ended with

00:01:15--> 00:01:39

the encounter that Omar Hassan had with an idi salatu salam in the harem, maybe didn't see him. But he was listening to her and sort of pseudo haka, and it impressed him so much. And Omar says that, when he listened to the Prophet reading the Quran, in the Salah, and he hid himself, behind the Kaaba to listen.

00:01:40--> 00:01:51

That was the point at which he realized that this is the truth from a lost Hancock. And I think basically because of two things, one,

00:01:53--> 00:01:55

he understood

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

what the prophet was reading.

00:02:00--> 00:02:01

And number two,

00:02:03--> 00:02:11

he obviously felt that the verses read by the NaVi saw Salah was read particularly for him.

00:02:13--> 00:02:41

That he thought he said, The Prophet he thought the spider Prophet was a was a magician, and Allah says, well, we'll be carrying is not and so forth and so on. So it shows the impact that has on the heart and the mind when it is understood by the reader or by the listener. And there is only one example of how the Quran touched the heart of the Zahava AlLahi wa Salatu was Salam.

00:02:43--> 00:03:04

Now, coming back to understanding the Quran, and memorization of the Quran, and I want you to understand that memorization of the Quran has been a methodology of keeping in the Koran since the time of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:03:06--> 00:03:26

The time was an obvious wasallam in the Sahaba there was no choice. People couldn't read nor write they had to memorize. It was compulsory for them them to memorize the Quran couldn't write it down. And there was a reason for that was allow Spangler wanted the Koran to be transferred by

00:03:28--> 00:03:43

the spoken word, not the written word, because the spoken word cannot be corrupted. But the written word camp was one of the reasons so our children today Mashallah we can all read the Quran.

00:03:44--> 00:03:49

Everybody who has learned the alphabet, we can all read the hungry law.

00:03:50--> 00:03:54

But when we ask our children to become happy

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

What do we say?

00:03:58--> 00:04:13

We say martial law, my charging was read like Abdul Basit or you must read like Schrage or you must read like this one. Well, you must read like that on martial law. And we encourage our children to pick up one of the styles of one of the great golfers of the day.

00:04:15--> 00:04:34

Instead of making a loss panatela should grant him both to grant him the memorization and most of allow Shiva huskvarna tala should grant him the understanding of the Quran. When the Prophet says Allah made to offer Abdullah Abbas got hold of him one day and pressed him to his chest and say to him,

00:04:36--> 00:04:46

Oh Allah, you fuck oufit Dean, Aloma faculty, Dean, Oh Allah, give him understanding of the dean and the dean that time was the Quran.

00:04:48--> 00:04:58

So Prophet asked for understanding so we should following that sooner we should ask allows him to learn that he was grant us and our children understanding of the

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

Don't settle for second best, the best is to understand, secondly, to memorize.

00:05:08--> 00:05:11

We are very proud as Muslims, you know, we say that

00:05:12--> 00:05:15

we, we have a 24 seven

00:05:17--> 00:05:42

guidance from the Quran we live with Muslims 24 seven. We say that other people go to church, maybe on a Sunday or on a Saturday, but we pray five times every single day. And we live the way we dress, the way the Quran in fact, we may have made a soul out of it for our students, that the Quran is our constitution that we live by the Torah.

00:05:44--> 00:05:51

But my question to you is, how do we live by the Quran when we don't understand?

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

How is that possible?

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

How is it possible for a person

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

to do that?

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

And I want to quote for you from Surah Al Furqan, which is the 25th surah.

00:06:08--> 00:06:13

In verse 36, allows for hunter says, will say on the deaf piano,

00:06:14--> 00:06:32

what color your A B and the Messenger of Allah will say, oh my lord, in a coma tattoo hodel for Anima Jura Oh my Lord, my code my people have taken this course on, they've abandoned nakara

00:06:34--> 00:06:36

they've treated the Quran as some foolish book.

00:06:38--> 00:06:55

How is it possible at the end of everything when the newbies are standing in front of Allah? What the What will he say? My people who is his people, he's oma, he's referring to us. He says that we've abandoned the euro. We have forsaken the we have deserted the Quran. But how is it possible?

00:06:56--> 00:07:12

None of us said God. And none of us want to know that we have abandoned the Koran or forsaken the Quran. We read the Quran, we memorize the Quran, the Ramadan release of the Quran, we have competitions of the era, where we vie and compete with each other in who has the most beautiful

00:07:14--> 00:07:19

voice to read the Quran. And a lot of times that allows us to read the Quran in the most beautiful voice

00:07:21--> 00:07:40

we can ask to have is you know, read surah someone say well read Torah. So let's read from that verse to that verse in Surah. So he will tell you, if you read, you say that is in Surah 77. So we have all that knowledge. But if you ask to have this person who doesn't understand the Quran, what are you reading, you will be able to answer you.

00:07:41--> 00:07:49

So we have become alienated from the understanding of the Quran. Because it's nothing else a book is to be understood.

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

Let me give you an example.

00:07:54--> 00:07:57

About alienation from the word of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:00--> 00:08:02

There's the Quran being read in a human voice.

00:08:04--> 00:08:15

And there is the Koran, which consists of the word Add Column and message from Allah subhanaw taala to humanity. He said two entirely different things.

00:08:20--> 00:08:23

Today, if you have some

00:08:24--> 00:08:28

CD in your car and you playing the CD in your car and your friend gets into the car

00:08:30--> 00:08:43

What will he say? When he listens? He says Oh, and Who's that? And you say Miss arias abou bossy and he will say Mashallah, it's beautiful. I must give me a copy of that.

00:08:44--> 00:08:48

So the Quran has now become missionary, it's become Abdul Basit.

00:08:51--> 00:08:59

I've never heard someone say Mashallah. I'm listening to the words of Allah beautiful Allah speaks to us. Look what Allah saying to us.

00:09:01--> 00:09:07

The Quran has become like our local colleagues, we mentioned these things, oh, he reads like so and so on. He reads like so and so.

00:09:10--> 00:09:13

Brothers and sisters, we are not in a good space.

00:09:15--> 00:09:20

This is not a good space for Muslims to be in. And we'll come to learn why.

00:09:22--> 00:09:30

Because this for us is the most important book in our lives. It is the most important book in our lives.

00:09:32--> 00:09:41

And yet we are happy to read it heart of the heart of the heart. Without understanding the Quran. It is really the English of course and we understand it to a certain extent.

00:09:43--> 00:09:56

And you know, it's amazing but you've all seen the clips of the Quran being read in a church, or in a congregation of non Muslims. You've seen this

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

and you've also been impressed with

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

by the fact that sometimes a Christian did not listen, they cry when is listen to the reading of the Quran, they cry, they sit spellbound,

00:10:09--> 00:10:11

not moving, listen to

00:10:14--> 00:10:21

it, they don't understand the Quran. They cry, they spell but he didn't understand anything that is being read of the Torah.

00:10:23--> 00:10:24

And as we

00:10:26--> 00:10:32

when we sit at a wedding, and we don't have a scarf on and the Quran is going to be read in what do we do, we put a scarf

00:10:34--> 00:11:01

and we put our scarves on and we set up state and we listen to the Quran, some of us will also spell bounded by the voice of the party is called that we cry by listening just to the voice of the car. So what is difference between us and them? What is the difference between a non Muslim listening to the Quran and not understanding and then crying and being skull bound? And a Muslim doesn't into the Quran and crying and being spellbound

00:11:02--> 00:11:07

and not understanding anything? There's no difference? Can you imagine?

00:11:08--> 00:11:12

They don't understand they cry, we don't understand. And we can

00:11:18--> 00:11:27

I want to bring to your attention. Now. What does Allah say about understanding in memorization? does Allah say anything about the difference between

00:11:29--> 00:11:34

memorizing the Quran and understanding? First I will record for you a verse from Surah two

00:11:36--> 00:11:49

which is the 15th surah of the Quran. The ninth verse allows for analysis in national zelner vichara What in Allahu Allah has to do. This is a very famous first

00:11:50--> 00:11:55

What does Allah say? Allahu Allah says, enough vividly we

00:11:57--> 00:12:45

the pneumonia or the shutdown it is that nice. Are we in now Valley in a valley in Napa Valley, we LS is not new, another word for V is nothing necessarily recent down. So three weeks in a row, we visually we and nano is re and nutzung nice v sent down visually we sent down three times Allah emphasizes the grade as the foreign come from, from Mohammed Salah lots of know, from from anybody else know Allah says we, this Quran comes from Allah was hands on with Allah Who created you and created what we say we love. Anybody who doesn't say they love Allah, how can you love somebody who doesn't understand what he's saying?

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

And we can't see

00:12:50--> 00:12:59

what kind of a love is that? And then Allah says we're in love with a happy dude. And we will

00:13:00--> 00:13:04

unless it's what inner again and visually we love

00:13:06--> 00:13:29

this book, La La is an intensifying article intensifies the expression of this is it. This is what I will do less is what in the end we will protect this Hold on. We will protect it from and will preserve it from corruption.

00:13:30--> 00:13:44

So Allah says, I send down this book, and I will protect it from corruption. People think oh, if we don't memorize or on the forum, we'll get lost. People will change the Quran. for 1500 years nobody's been able to add a doctor.

00:13:46--> 00:13:49

And was it because of me My Father and your Father? No.

00:13:50--> 00:14:02

Was that because as an evisa? No, he needs to do it I passed on and he left behind could have been corrupted, but why is it not corrupted? Because allow Super hydroton has given a guarantee? He will look after this.

00:14:04--> 00:14:06

Then surah Saad

00:14:07--> 00:14:13

the 58 surah of the Quran verse 29. Allah Subhana Allah says

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

keytab on einzelner who ilica Mobile Arakan Lita de baru

00:14:23--> 00:14:26

so what does Allah say in the first verse, Allah protects?

00:14:28--> 00:14:53

What does Allah say in the second verse keytab on a book and the level, which we sent down eleiko Bahama to you. So this was sent from Allah Mohammed, Salah Lavoie de la melodica MOBA rakon, Allah adds the verse Allah adds to it. And this Quran is a blessing. Now we know three things about the Quran.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

It is a Shiva and Rama. It is a medicine

00:15:02--> 00:15:05

And it is a mercy now it is Mubarak.

00:15:06--> 00:15:19

It is a blessing from our last time because you know today we want to find blessings in everything we say oh, that's this is a blessing you know, look at this it's a blessing, you know. Rob yeah it's a blessing

00:15:21--> 00:15:26

it's a blessing Greta paramhansa blessing if you want blessings, blessings, which is confirmed Alhamdulillah

00:15:28--> 00:15:40

you know we had a big discussion in the community some time ago but about rock must do this photo Barbara via photo badru touch this photo Barack and this belonged to the Prophet numerous statue for tabarrok all these things

00:15:42--> 00:15:47

hola says I've seen the Quran as a means of, of getting

00:15:50--> 00:15:57

blessing from Allah Hunter. And Allah says Why did I say this to you? Why did I say this base into you? Lee

00:15:59--> 00:16:07

yet the baru in order for you to reflect upon the contents of the on with understanding

00:16:09--> 00:16:23

that under so what is the purpose of the Quran? What is what is what is the purpose of the form? What is Allah's work and what is our work? Allah says his job is to protect the Koran and our job is given us our job. He says, I've given it to you so that you may

00:16:26--> 00:16:27

practice to

00:16:29--> 00:16:30

reflect upon the Quran.

00:16:32--> 00:16:39

But as a scholar said, he said call up Dominica double allows mahalo tala has requested from us

00:16:40--> 00:16:52

to apply our mind to the Quran and to understand the Quran, what I've done, and we have made obligatory, obligatory on us, the memorization of the Quran, Allah says one thing and we do something else. Allah says,

00:16:55--> 00:17:06

I have asked you, Leah tada baru. I've seen that as a blessing for you to reflect upon. But what do we do is and Allah says you are protected we say now

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

we will

00:17:12--> 00:17:18

protect the Quran by memorization. I think that's what your job Your job is to understand the Quran. That's your first priority.

00:17:20--> 00:17:28

And you cannot protect the Quran because I have taken that upon myself. That's my job. allows for Angela says the last verse in connection with this.

00:17:31--> 00:17:40

This is what man does because he doesn't understand the Quran. He does all kinds of things. He puts His in front of understanding but he doesn't know the verses. He doesn't know what Allah requires from him.

00:17:42--> 00:18:16

Allah says in Surah, Mohamad which is a 47 surah verse 24. For now yet at the burner for an other Peruvian Han Allah, Allah. So Mohammed Allah, Allah says, Allah says Why do you not understand the Quran? Why do you not contemplate on the Quran? Why do you not reflect on the Quran? Why? What's wrong? I asked you reata de barro, but you don't do it? Um, Allah kulu been a follower? Do you have locks on your heart system? Or your hearts locked?

00:18:17--> 00:18:27

Have you locked your hearts? Because if you don't understand the Quran, your heart is locked. What does it mean? What does it mean when something is locked, when the door is locked, nobody can get through.

00:18:29--> 00:18:30

A lock can get through your heart to your heart.

00:18:32--> 00:18:44

Because Allah can only penetrate your heart if you contemplate this for him, he's worth you understand what he says that allows for hunter Allah grant his understanding of for me allows us to follow the Quran

00:18:50--> 00:18:56

again, I come to the point of because we don't understand the Quran we make the wrong decisions

00:18:58--> 00:19:04

or not the correct actually correct decisions is Allah and Allah once and what do we do we fabricate

00:19:07--> 00:19:11

what we want to do, we say but what's wrong with this? And what is wrong with that?

00:19:12--> 00:19:15

And why can't we do this and why can't we do that?

00:19:16--> 00:19:23

Why can't I read the heart I mean month of Ramadan. But how can reading of Harlem in the month of Ramadan is not fun? Most of them?

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

probably didn't read hadham

00:19:31--> 00:19:37

what do you do in the month of Ramadan jabril came to him to teach him that early in the month of Ramadan.

00:19:39--> 00:19:51

So if we want to follow the Sunnah of the Nebojsa Salam and the sunova laws rantala we should get somebody to teach us the understanding of the whole and the meaning of that is a tsunami,

00:19:52--> 00:19:55

Providence and read the Quran, like a speed train.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

And we say Oh, little COVID-19 will be finished.

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

Where does this come?

00:20:02--> 00:20:10

From? Why, yes reading the Quran you'll get reward, but that was in the sooner than it is. I will attend jabril not to teach him how to read

00:20:11--> 00:20:15

the Quran just to read the Quran now to understand,

00:20:16--> 00:20:21

allows pantalla says, Paul, Allah says to sell on Omaha matalas alum

00:20:23--> 00:20:26

see to your people say to the Muslims

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

to Allah, Allah

00:20:30--> 00:20:34

Do you want to teach Allah His Deen?

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

politically words?

00:20:39--> 00:20:54

No double meanings, no interpretation no tafsir Allah says at two I Li Muna la hubbie de Unicom, do you want to teach all Muslims your Lord A lot of us we do that all the time.

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

How many things are they not that we do in music? Oh man I do it's a good thing allows fatherlessness within this this this verse

00:21:08--> 00:21:15

while La Jolla, Allah Murphy summer Watashi wa murfin. Unless you want to teach a lays deed and Allah knows.

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

Oh, everything that happens in the whole universe.

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

Matthew semi What do you know?

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

How can you teach

00:21:27--> 00:21:28

it we do it?

00:21:29--> 00:21:35

Is it This was nocino does Allah say in the hora? I don't know. But as far as my understanding goes.

00:21:38--> 00:21:39

For example,

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

I'm giving an example

00:21:43--> 00:21:44

of our custom here.

00:21:46--> 00:21:49

Now, there are many ways of making the cruel law.

00:21:51--> 00:21:52

We call it that we call it

00:21:55--> 00:22:02

we call it marang. We have many names for it. Ultimately we say it is the cruel law.

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

That's good, the cruel

00:22:09--> 00:22:11

but what what does Allah want from us?

00:22:12--> 00:22:21

Know what is mainstream Islam? What does Allah want from us which allows for hamdullah one says to remember him, how does Allah want us to remember?

00:22:26--> 00:22:37

Like your child, your child brings your money brings you food, he brings you everything. But you see maybe once a week in a lockdown maybe you won't see

00:22:41--> 00:22:53

that he thinks this is what you want to go shopping for him, bring him chocolate, bring you this bring you there, buy pajamas, pray with us. But in your heart as a father or mother that's not what you want. You just want to see him that's

00:22:54--> 00:22:59

the best prison you could give your parents he's just looking into their face and say Salaam Aleykum Selam Aleykum. Mommy, mommy.

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

Same with allows.

00:23:06--> 00:23:08

There's a low weight and this our way.

00:23:11--> 00:23:15

These are low and this is everything because we don't understand that

00:23:17--> 00:23:20

there is a verse one of the crew lie above

00:23:22--> 00:23:28

a lot of other lessons and remembrance of Allah is the Greatest.

00:23:29--> 00:23:36

No more nothing better than that. While a vicar ally at work even if you don't understand Arabic you understand the Quran and you understand

00:23:38--> 00:23:42

and unless it's wala, again infected particle wala

00:23:44--> 00:23:52

Victrola and visually, certainly, without any doubt, Allah says, my remembrance the remembrance of Allah is

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

number one.

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

So how does a low understood human being?

00:23:59--> 00:24:02

That's the next question. We must we go for the answer.

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

We go to Allah.

00:24:06--> 00:24:11

We go to the Quran. What is the Quran say, allows foreigners in Surah Taha,

00:24:12--> 00:24:27

which is the 20th surah in the 14th verse, And please read the verse before this as well. Remember, whenever I go to verse, I give you the citation or the reference so that you can go and look up these verses afterwards.

00:24:28--> 00:24:42

And check with it with I've interpreted incorrectly from your reading of the translation of the verse, Allah says, Oh Ha, this 14, five good me. Worship Me.

00:24:43--> 00:24:48

I bought this one. Then what does Allah say? Well Hakim is sonically the Cree

00:24:51--> 00:24:55

and establish regular prayer for my remembrance

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

one alone from us three hours of

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

The Corolla

00:25:03--> 00:25:04

once a week

00:25:05--> 00:25:11

once a year no Hello doesn't say that knowing the Quran does Allah say in it

00:25:13--> 00:25:19

and we went to teach allies de la hola katella What does Allah say? What happy me Salah

00:25:21--> 00:25:24

if you want to remember me oh my creation

00:25:36--> 00:25:37

before your Salah

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

and perform it the way it should be performed to can remember me in charm, but inshallah that is on Friday I spoke about it and I will in my lecture that I gave online you can go in inshallah you can go and look at it.

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

Listen to it

00:25:57--> 00:25:58

whenever you wish.

00:26:01--> 00:26:03

So there are many things but there is the best

00:26:05--> 00:26:07

there is happy hips of the Koran.

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

There is

00:26:09--> 00:26:12

reading the Koran in

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

love

00:26:24--> 00:26:28

Yes, there are many things but the best is act which comes from our last panel.

00:26:34--> 00:26:35

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:26:49--> 00:26:54

started the profit analysis alarm to say this

00:26:55--> 00:26:59

call up at olive oil in the lobby the nickel tell him Oh Mohammed

00:27:01--> 00:27:03

can teach a lady

00:27:05--> 00:27:18

he's saying this to the Natty sauce Allah and he's saying this to us which means an evisa Suleiman us on the same same level when it comes to the Quran meaning all our knowledge comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

There is

00:27:23--> 00:27:26

hashtag YOLO I'm sure that the millennials

00:27:28--> 00:27:36

have heard of this hashtag. The hashtag that was used by a rapper Canadian rapper his name was Drake.

00:27:38--> 00:27:47

And what does yo yo mean? YOLO means and I'm sure it's used in many, the South Koreans love to use this hashtag YOLO you only live once.

00:27:48--> 00:27:49

You only live once.

00:27:52--> 00:27:52

And

00:27:53--> 00:27:59

the millennials Who are the people born between 1980 and the year 2000.

00:28:01--> 00:28:04

So if you were born in the year 2000. If you're 20 years old, you're

00:28:06--> 00:28:11

part of the millennia group of people. And I created this group of people why?

00:28:13--> 00:28:14

Because

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

this is where the money is in the world.

00:28:19--> 00:28:26

People are in their 30s in middle 20s they started it working a lot of money, a lot of spare money.

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

And one of the things of your life is to travel

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

to become

00:28:34--> 00:28:36

a back of backpack traveler.

00:28:37--> 00:28:42

But YOLO has another meaning it means that you should enjoy yourself to the full

00:28:43--> 00:28:53

as a millennium, you should do everything. And in the west of course they do everything they party they think they take drugs and they do everything. This is YOLO

00:28:55--> 00:28:58

and there was Evan McInnes

00:29:00--> 00:29:26

I just read this I don't know these people was also a rapper, and he was also YOLO hashtag and he was so into narcissism just pleasing himself. That one day he he sent out a message on Twitter with this hashtag YOLO and within the hour he was dead in a car crash was driving was drinking in your driving so Maddie killed himself.

00:29:28--> 00:29:30

Now, what Islam wants from us

00:29:32--> 00:29:39

so what is Islam one from us? because Islam one from us to live? Yes to live a full life of course.

00:29:40--> 00:29:41

But the righteously.

00:29:43--> 00:29:56

Koran wants us to live allows us to live the slumbers as to love the Navy Salam wants us to live a life that is righteous, you can travel you can eat, you can study you can do everything. But do it in a righteous man.

00:30:03--> 00:30:15

And the same with everything else. And I want to give a message to young people today we are in lockdown. We are. We have been given a chance by our last home to consider our existing state and our future

00:30:16--> 00:30:36

and particularly to young people, particularly those two young men and women who are already in their 20s, late 20s. And they're not married yet. And they say to themselves by Korea, my career, my career. I'm not ready for marriage. Let this Coronavirus be a

00:30:38--> 00:30:40

wake up call for you

00:30:41--> 00:30:43

to understand

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

that this isn't right for you.

00:30:46--> 00:30:52

And not being married leads to a lot of things which is not agreeable to allow Sanatana

00:30:53--> 00:31:01

coating is not good. Because coating today can lead to everything and can be hidden. Today we have so many things that we can hide behind.

00:31:03--> 00:31:11

So people live a very frivolous life, open life, a promiscuous life, including Muslims.

00:31:13--> 00:31:19

So I'm asking you from the bottom of the heart. If you have somebody that you want to marry, I must write another Yes. What

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

is the easiest thing is to get married?

00:31:25--> 00:31:30

Hello, so I'm going to read it to you. This isn't a menu needed. You don't need a house.

00:31:33--> 00:31:36

But to be married. That's part of the sooner than ever.

00:31:37--> 00:31:44

That's why sometimes we we get distracted and we get deviated from Islam. Because we're not on the right path.

00:31:46--> 00:31:51

We go to the magic from the magic we'll go to our girlfriend's house. We take out for the evening.

00:31:52--> 00:31:55

The whole Loyola hotel, please.

00:31:56--> 00:32:00

I believe even now with these latest cool rings with alcohol in it. People drink

00:32:02--> 00:32:21

young men at universities they drink with young women. How long we must decide No, this is not part of living righteously. We can take whatever we want, which is halibut a lot harder to eat what we want and is particularly for the latest drink. dress the way a lot of the lawns live a short life is very short.

00:32:24--> 00:32:35

So, in particular, the dis the use of our society for me are the women. The hero of our societies are the women who dress

00:32:36--> 00:32:37

modestly

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

modestly

00:32:43--> 00:32:50

they're the heroes Why are they the heroes? Because a Muslim woman who dresses modestly goes out into the road to a job

00:32:51--> 00:33:01

and by not even speaking to anybody can see she's she's a Muslim. It's not easy. Imagine you have to go for a job interview in today's world

00:33:03--> 00:33:05

with a job fully cloud covered

00:33:07--> 00:33:10

not easy for managed to do that won't be easy, be difficult,

00:33:11--> 00:33:18

yet have the courage to walk in Casey in the shopping malls panel and really admire them especially the young ones.

00:33:20--> 00:33:20

So

00:33:24--> 00:33:27

please take heed of my advice don't wait till it's too late.

00:33:30--> 00:33:36

Ramadan is coming please promise yourself that this Ramadan is going to be different from other Ramadan

00:33:37--> 00:33:52

then you're going to read the Quran with understanding you can read the English translation please read it. Please think about it. Not about reading a hard time you'll get more reward from allows for when you get a reward for reading a heart you'll get 100 reward for understanding that heart.

00:33:54--> 00:34:08

Why? Because you are following the command of Allah who Spano tala Leah tada baru to contemplate and to tie your mind we apply mind everything can be difficult to apply by.

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

We're not there to to say what is haram and halal and create a new fact. Give a fatwa? No, that's what the purpose of the WWE is your mind interacting with others follow

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

your emotions, your art the way you see life interacting with revelation from Allah. That is not I've seen I've seen something out there. You need no special knowledge that I've seen.

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

So

00:34:37--> 00:34:54

if you don't finish your hat on this month of Ramadan, don't worry. If you just read Torah Baka and you understand you've read it three, four times you understand now you say to yourself, Wow, I've never done this before in my life. We all will be pleased with me because I'm following a form that Allah requested from

00:34:55--> 00:35:00

us. I want to read the 100 Yeah, I want to read the image and I want to read the question.

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

And I want to read and compete and there's no competition.

00:35:08--> 00:35:12

So I said logic took eight years to be memorized.

00:35:17--> 00:35:20

I want to ask you to

00:35:22--> 00:35:32

Google the following name, Gary wolf. This man's name is Gary Professor Emeritus. Gary wolf is a devout Catholic.

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

He's a

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

great scholar journalist is recognized.

00:35:41--> 00:35:43

For his writings, he wrote more than 40 books.

00:35:45--> 00:35:46

And

00:35:48--> 00:35:55

he was appalled. At the way Donald Trump spoke about Islam. Most people spoke about Islam.

00:35:57--> 00:35:58

And he thought to himself,

00:36:00--> 00:36:01

this can be Islam, this

00:36:03--> 00:36:09

nearly 2 billion people was accepted as faith calling them terrorists. That can't be true. So what did you do? What do you think you did?

00:36:12--> 00:36:16

At the age of 83, he was born in 1934.

00:36:17--> 00:36:25

In the year 2017, he published a book called what the Quran meant and why it matters.

00:36:28--> 00:36:30

You read books on the Bible on the Torah.

00:36:32--> 00:36:40

You know, he knew he knows Latin, he knows the ancient Aramaic language of the Bible. He knows all the sciences.

00:36:41--> 00:36:47

And what was his book that he wrote not 2017? Maybe it'll be his last book. And there is an interview

00:36:49--> 00:36:52

is he gives a talk on Google.

00:36:54--> 00:37:08

On his book that he wrote what the Quran meant, meaning it's not what they say it means it not what Donald Trump says. It means, he says makes it very clear or other people say about Mohammed is true. Then why the Baja metal a lot so

00:37:12--> 00:37:17

many so many wives are the sexual person pervert as a his panel

00:37:18--> 00:37:19

along the scileanna

00:37:20--> 00:37:22

he does debunks all these things.

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

Thank you thinking this man

00:37:27--> 00:37:33

is only motivation was to read the read the Quran, he reflected upon the Quran and he wrote a book on Oprah.

00:37:36--> 00:37:41

And when I listened to him, there are many things that disagree with him with but there are also many things

00:37:42--> 00:37:44

to Ramadan is my influence at this age.

00:37:46--> 00:37:49

And what is he What is he What did he do? Lita de barro

00:37:50--> 00:37:52

the follow the instruction of Allah

00:37:54--> 00:38:03

and are asked a lot hunt to lead into Islam If not, if not a Muslim already, because I cannot read the Quran. Remember who you are what you are without being

00:38:05--> 00:38:08

affected by the words of Allah this panel

00:38:14--> 00:38:20

now, I am sure that the two lectures which I gave him the thought the end of I mean, I'm going to take

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

these lectures on the

00:38:27--> 00:38:36

right into Ramadan inshallah, because Ramadan is the month of the Quran, but I want to also say to you that I have highlighted

00:38:37--> 00:38:38

what we need to do.

00:38:40--> 00:38:41

But what is the solution?

00:38:43--> 00:38:45

The solution is to learn Arabic.

00:38:46--> 00:39:04

But you and I know that so many many many courses have been offered in Arabic from say, learn Arabic in six months then Arabic in three months 3,099.9% of the people who do these courses

00:39:07--> 00:39:07

don't finish it.

00:39:09--> 00:39:15

They promise they be able to read the Koran speaker on I mean, read Arabic speak Arabic, it doesn't happen.

00:39:17--> 00:39:20

inshallah Allah Allah speeds me.

00:39:21--> 00:39:21

I've

00:39:23--> 00:39:24

constructed

00:39:28--> 00:39:29

a methodology

00:39:32--> 00:39:34

of teaching

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

Arabic, not the grammar because when you start with grammar people to say sorry, it's too difficult

00:39:42--> 00:39:46

to understand the words of the Quran. For example, if I say

00:39:47--> 00:39:50

to Allah, will you read an orangutan lamona cool

00:39:52--> 00:39:56

after you only move to LA beginning, so you want to know what is the one to live on me.

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

Now I will teach right at the end

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

Where every other teacher stopped, I will start

00:40:04--> 00:40:05

my experience.

00:40:08--> 00:40:09

I've been reading Arabic

00:40:10--> 00:40:16

for the last 50 years of my life. I'm still reading, I'm still learning, I'm still learning.

00:40:20--> 00:40:28

But you cannot become a self learner if you can't look up an Arabic word in English in a dictionary.

00:40:30--> 00:40:44

If you cannot go to if I can't, if I give a word in Arabic, and you can't as a Muslim go you every Muslim must have his own Arabic English dictionary. The first thing you must teach a Muslim is how do I find the meaning of the word.

00:40:47--> 00:41:05

So I can give you any word, and you can eat any word. And that's the beginning. So if you open the Koran, you can look at any word, the Quran will give you one meaning in English, but if you go to the diction give you 10 meanings. And you'll be able to find out which meaning is appropriate to you for that word.

00:41:09--> 00:41:12

So dictionary is one feature of dictionary. The other book is

00:41:15--> 00:41:16

it's a thick book.

00:41:24--> 00:41:26

Books are very big, like a very simple.

00:41:28--> 00:41:30

This is not a book that expect you to,

00:41:31--> 00:41:33

to read, it's not a it's not a leader.

00:41:34--> 00:41:46

But this is the book that I want to introduce you to because this will bring you this will put the Quran in your hand writing events, it's called margin. Alpha is the alpha alpha, ironically,

00:41:47--> 00:41:51

it is a dictionary of every word in the Quran,

00:41:52--> 00:41:53

in alphabetical form.

00:41:55--> 00:42:06

So if you want to look up the word alhama, you go to it I in LA meme on top, it says I love me, I love to I love him, you will find all the words and alama

00:42:08--> 00:42:09

all you have to know is

00:42:10--> 00:42:13

somebody to teach you, I can do it to you in 10 minutes.

00:42:14--> 00:42:20

So inshallah, this is what I want to do, it's not a grammar lesson, it's a lesson about becoming self sufficient.

00:42:22--> 00:42:35

So if I pass away, in order to teach this parser, you will still be in contact with opponent, you'll be able to understand it on your own, all you need is a dictionary, and inshallah, this book, both of these are on the internet, if you'd have to buy them,

00:42:38--> 00:42:48

you can, you can offer this lecture, you can go back, see where you can find. And the dictionary, of course, is the most famous one. It's called, it's written by a man called hands bear.

00:42:50--> 00:43:11

And it's, this is going to be very exciting for you. And it's going to be very exciting for me because I haven't taught this course which I've developed to anybody it so I'm first gonna do it two, maybe five or 10 people as guinea pigs to see how it works and how effective it is. And then I'll teach it on the on the on the internet.

00:43:12--> 00:43:18

So I announced yesterday in my July lecture, that lecture will be at 12 o'clock

00:43:22--> 00:43:29

which is a mistake I made so this morning I started putting the lecture in quarter past tense of the lecture inshallah is already live.

00:43:30--> 00:43:31

You can

00:43:33--> 00:43:37

find it on YouTube. So my last one I'm gonna give that we all learn

00:43:39--> 00:43:46

from what Allah teaches us. We take it to heart, the law of the heart. We open the door to our laws, Allah and Allah.

00:43:49--> 00:43:59

May Allah protect you May Allah protect all of us from the Coronavirus laws that inspire us with so we become the GL Muslim to Muslim wonderful,

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

conscious Muslim. That is confident of his anger and his channel. That's what we want, isn't it and it doesn't take doesn't take a lot. doesn't take a lot. The

00:44:14--> 00:44:15

last one that says

00:44:17--> 00:44:18

that.

00:44:20--> 00:44:24

He had made this Deen not difficult, easy use.

00:44:27--> 00:44:45

So that is how we should see it. It's going to help protect you or protect your loved ones. Well on grounds that we read from Donnie Chung. Now Lagonda Coronavirus would go away quickly so we can do our jumar in the masjid and Tara in the magic in sha

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

Allah and Allah wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Just want to say, please subscribe so that the Juniper device is done you will get a message and if the lecture starts with a message each other

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

Walter

00:45:01--> 00:45:04
