A continuation of the discussion on the Qur’an. In this presentation we see a practical demonstration of the application of the mind to the Qura’n. Pls share with those who have memorised the Qur’an.
hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah and who want to stand in who wanted me to be here on a talk Hello la
when I was with him in Cerulean phocoena amin see Molina Maja de la philomel de la la Who am I up to find out how the Ala Moana shadow Allah Allah Allah Allahu Allahu la sharika when a shadow under Mohammed Abdul Allah Solo Solo Toby was Salam O Allah he was, he was happy woman Darby that what he did.
Beloved brothers and sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
This morning, we are going to,
be continuing with our analysis of the holder for an
in terms of
the verse in Surah Assad, which is a 58 surah verse 29, which I quoted before, we Allah says keytab one and Jana alayka. Mubarak only at the baru it
alone, Sandra says a book
which we have sent to you or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
Mubarak Khan as a blessing.
So that you may
contemplate so that you might apply your mind to the verses in this book.
So the application of the mind is that which is earnestly required of Muslims in the present day.
We know that there are many a Hadith of the Nabi sallallahu sallam.
Let's speak about knowledge.
And in fact, the very foundation the wall and the roof of this Deen is built on knowledge. The very first word that was revealed to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam indicates this
will last longer tells all of us that we should read
and what is the best book to read the Quran
and what is the status of reading the Quran and learning the status of that in the eyes of Allah is that it is a fact.
It is a compulsory act.
the act which precedes all other acts in Islam, whether it is your Salah, whether it is fasting with the scope of hydrated giving xhaka that at that fuddled at that composite equi precedes all those obligations which are lies placed upon us is the obligation of seeking of knowledge.
And that is why this hadith or nebby, false Allah
we'd say says that a dunya melona. So this dunya is cursed by Lord fantana except two people, the teacher and the student,
meaning alors very dissatisfied with people who are neither teachers nor students.
So if you are not a student or teacher humbler now you are a student,
you are learning the deen of Allah,
by this channel and by many other channels, and many other teachers that are teaching us hamdulillah
and then evisa salaam said followable, ie me farinata Nanakuli Muslim and non Muslim
that to seek knowledge is compulsory is found
on every Muslim male and every Muslim female.
What does this mean? What does it actually mean? The Hadith doesn't say that knowledge is compulsory on every male and female know. The Hadith says follow lm seeking knowledge is found. So what is up to seek knowledge allows for how nutana would have put on an impossible task. If you wanted all of us to know everything.
That's impossible. If you had said knowledge is fun firm, how would we have been able to accumulate all the knowledge No, he says to make an effort to seek knowledge. That is a compulsory act, how much you learn and how much you retain a knowledge you will lose over the years.
That isn't the end of our last panel Donna Olympics is forgetting Olympics as any member
so you sitting in front or looking at your screen
on whatever kind of device you're using, you are seeking knowledge you have made an effort to be at 11 o'clock on a Sunday morning. So you are fulfilling a compulsory, most important part of beauty. Because you can't make Sara what advantage you can't make give Zakat without knowledge. You can't go ahead without knowledge. And you can't fast without knowledge. And you can't live your life without knowledge. In fact, the most important thing today that we hold on to is knowledge. That is what we tell our children whether we live in a in a mansion or in a township parents have only one
message for their children
seek knowledge learn
become self sufficient in knowledge.
And this is only going to university and then it stops no Muslim learns minute
from the cradle to the grave. You don't have to change the city and say, Oh no, I'm gonna stop learning I'm gonna do something else now.
No, it's a continuous continuous
effort in the path of almost Karnataka.
So today inshallah, as I promised on Friday,
we will be speaking on
what do the letters that precede some of the surah of the Quran? What do they mean? Or what do they indicate? letters like Alif Lam? Meem Saud? Yes, e m.
Tau Ha. These are all letters that precede some of the soldiers in the
army just random or Islami,
the Albuquerque taboola A Buffy with tequila and we start stealing the Quran from radical Kitab volare Buffy
or is there a specific
or a wisdom behind allows mahanoy Tada placing these words before some of the sutras of the holy
and this lecture is important for all of us because we all read the Torah. But I would like you to consider to distribute this particular lecture to particularly children who are doing house because it will put something of the Quran into perspective for them as well.
It will show them that everything in the Quran is purposeful. Nothing in the Quran is not purposeful.
And there is a meaningful everything because I live la meme wasn't added afterwards the Parag Alif Lam meme was brought from the local muffle from the book by Alphonse Allah from which apart was taken and brought down by Julius Mohammed Salim including ad fly meme for hayase.
So what is what does it mean? What is the wisdom behind this?
These these latest are called are heroes of thought, a thought meaning something which is cut up, because I've been to cut up. So these are either dis disconnected letters as they are as we know them. Or they just joined letters, or some call them broken letters, because they individual letters.
these non descriptive letters
hasn't been discussed
by the Sahaba alima salatu salam
they have discussed these issues.
And abubaker for example.
His view was
these words are
and its meaning is only known to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So abakus view
the majority of the Sahaba
la masala to Salam
considered it possible
for Muslims to be able to discover the true meaning of these letters.
In other words, it's not a closed book.
It is our duty and responsibility to look and to what
To apply our minds to every letter, it says if Allah Subhana Allah is telling us all Muslims, I've given you these letters, I even want you to apply your mind to these single letters. Apart from the beautiful, connected letters, when we read the Koran with the T 30. And with that we know these letters Alif Lam him and this is how they will reveal Alif Lam in so many scholars say you shouldn't say Olive la meme
because there's not there's not a mother in law meme. It was revealed as aloof as a letter, lamb as a letter and meme as a letter. And this was the many in which was transferred to us verbally until today.
The Prophet really read it like that. So I'm not going to say that secret contacted the secret which allows them to seal a seal and Allah
as I say, No,
you can apply your mind and majority of the orlimar right up to today agree that we should apply our mind to the to these beautiful letters which Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed at the beginning of the swan.
Some also refer to these letters as follows
means that which opens
keys which open locks.
It's as if Olive lambing is the key to opening the lock to lock to sort of dakara
there are 2828 Some say 29 letters in the alphabet. Why do some say 29 because some say that the Elif and the Hamza is two litres and some say the elephant the Hamza is only one liter, ah
Be that as it may, whether it's 28 or 29.
There's not an increase. It's the same later when it is written exams and other ones.
If we consider the alphabet to be 28 letters,
then it is the first surprise is that
these Mozart and MacArthur are these singular letters
the sort of the sutras
there are 14 letters of the alphabet, which makes up all these letters used as openers for some source.
that's point number one. It's the first medical
14 letters and the alphabet is how many letters 28 letters. So exactly a half the alphabet is used to open the sewers. And guess how many surahs open with these letters are heard of almazan.
So there are 28 letters, 14 of them open this will be the keys to these two how many sewers
to 28 sewers of the Quran. So Pinilla. So already we see in the making a logic.
But now the question is
how? Why get the old llama studies? Why do they study it?
Why do they apply their mind to it?
They apply their mind to it because that is what Allah says.
I have not seen this book except for you to apply your mind yet, do it.
they really did. And by the way, applying our mind to letters is not like to see if anybody was interested in the Quran, any Allium? Any person, you don't need to be a scientist or a professor or an alum to sit down and say, hey, these are these are translators. Alif Lam Meem. Let me see what else these kinds of letters appear. And let me count the sower the
the sutras in which his latest open the sutras then you would have discovered
and and let me write down all the all the latest of the Arabic alphabet that is used.
In this opening words of the chapters, you would have discovered that there are 14 letters half of the alphabet Exactly. Number two, that these letters open. Exactly 28 surah of the Koran, which is the number of letters in the alphabet. So it all comes down to alswamitra is and that is why
some scholars have said that the reason Allah uses these letters is to give us a message. What is the message? The message is take heed, Take heed of the letters of the app, every letter has its own wisdom.
So Allah throwing our attention also, to those who are those 28 euros what is in those 28 euros It is so special that allows hardener wants to throw it into the yacine toha
Why does Salama say all the time to draw our attention to those who are us, there's something in that surah that draws our attention to it.
So 14 letters are used
of these 14 letters, as used
in the introduction of 28 subrata when 28 is also the number of letters in the alphabet.
So the latest used are alief ha ha for yeah calf, lamb meme noon, seen I saw odd cough, Andhra
This is the 14 letters.
What we should do those who listen, and those who have time now to actually confirm this, go to your annual now project to do or give your son the project was going to the poron give your daughter the project and say companies do this project. Let's go through the Quran, find the 28 word, write down the letters and see if you look at these letters whether they actually form are 14 of the 28 letters of Elvis panelo
so many people have said this, that the Quran is mathematically perfect.
It is, but you can only discover this perfection if we do it ourselves. So please take this as your next is your project. I mean we want to give the children all the children projects, the lovely project for them to do now. And also it will sit for them the tone of the Quran for the rest of their lives.
They will realize that there is more to this, if the latest only that opened the Quran
makes so much sense mathematically or otherwise. What about the rest of the Quran? panela What about the Quran we can read and understand what about those words are variable must those words be
karnala that's why allows longer that says if the see if they if they see it to be turned into ink and the trees that can be turned into pens, they will not be able to write the beauty of this. And it's so true academically so.
point, the scholars say and the people exam actually and
from the second century from the third century.
Even though I am these are all people who wrote books on these 14 letters describe all kinds of interpretations with their head.
It seems that the reason why I lost one does also put these letters at the beginning of the song is
that these letters are used, were used by the edit in everything they did in their speech in their writing, where they were familiar, very familiar with these letters. But allows vandala says the I've put these letters they say some of the scholars in a deputation to show that
I Allah can create of these data's a miracle without it being put into words, just by using the latest panel, just by using the latest allows handler can draw our attention
are beautifully said that this doctor who is applying your mind
just two letters, anybody can do that.
So this is the special perspectives that
and and some of these
Some of the sutras begin with one letter known.
Some begin with two letters. Tania seen.
Some begin with three letters. Some begin with four letters, and some begin with five letters.
And this is exactly if you look at the Arabic language, there are words that can consist of one letter, like bar for example belie, we swear by Allah.
Qatar to say NBC keen, I cut something with a knife beat with to be can be whoa is just a letter, but it means and there are words that have two letters, there are words that have three letters, that are words that are four letters in Arabic, and they are words that have five letters. So these
are thought these opening letters
are the 123 as if they indicating that these are the number of letters that can be used to form actual words in the Arabic language as well.
This disjointed words that I've given to you the beginning of this one also tells you that these letters can be combined in the Arabic language to form a word, one letter, two letters, three letters, four letters, oh, five letters, not six or seven,
So, that is again,
brings us to the miraculous nature of these letters. So panela.
The scholars have dissected in their minds
trying to find perspective on these opening letters.
Let's look at the word Alif Lam Meem
if you pronounce Alif Lam Meem you will find that the Alif comes from the throat ah
the lamb comes from the pellet
or the tongue. So Olive started Alif.
Lamb is in the middle of the mouth.
meme is at the end of the mouth, on the lips. So Alif laam Meem is beginning,
middle, and end.
the Dabashi says one of the alumni says,
What does this mean? beginning middle end? He says,
If you read all the sutras beginning with Alif Lam Meem.
What will you find?
You will find that these who are so or is the plural of surah. These who are the beginning of it speaks about creation.
The middle of it speaks about
man, the middle of creation sorry.
The beginning speaks about the beginning of creation, the middle of the surah talks about the middle of creation, and the end of the surah talks about the end of creation, opium
Subhan Allah, just applying their mind.
And this only applies to those who are us that begins with a leaf la meme. So now I can tell your son your daughter do this for me also.
Read the sutras and if they can't read Arabic or in English, tell me if this is the pattern of the surah that's the beginning of Alabamians or
talk about creation does the middle of the surah talk about the middle of creation? And does the end of the surah talk about the end of creation?
So look, man, for example, opens with Adam,
which is the beginning of creation and ends with gamma which is the end of creation. And so a lot one begins with a live lab.
then they discovered by applying their mind
that all those swap
Dexter starts with a letter for example toha.
All of them begin with the history of Nabil Moosa la Salatu. Salam.
This is by chance is this is this by chance?
Always if you plan by the great planner allows
a lot of analysis sunnery him it nephila Valkyrie and fusi Matata been hacked at BBN Allah and Allah.
Allah says in the Quran
as time goes on,
I will show
mankind that this coral is the truth
in themselves when they look into themselves, and when they look at things around them,
everything around them
if they do that allow Sandra says, they will certainly discover that this book is the truth. And when you discover that this book is the truth, you come to the realization that means that action is the truth. That means that
gender is the truth. That means that janome is the truth. So Hola. Hola Hola Kota, Ella Mila.
And if you get that realization, you realize that
you have to prepare yourself for that you have to do that which is that which is required of you.
We Muslims should not waste our time on things which our religion has not said we should do in a religious
context. Yes, we have to do everything else, go to work, study, become a doctor, become a lawyer, become a dentist,
become whatever we want pick up, encourage our children to do that. But remember, if they only have that,
if they only have that,
how we're going to convince them that there is an answer on
how we're going to end that is the only thing that directs a person's life. Your fear of Allah subhanaw taala stops you from doing things and that is what we should teach our children. And so we should bring this knowledge to them, to make them aware of the connection with our last panel with everything that Allah said is the truth in the Quran from our last panel without
harming if you if you read the sutras that starts with harming the scholars say
it that's what I always begin with revelation. For example.
In surah, facilite, Jaime, Tansy, Luna Rahmani Raheem, Allah says hi amin, then de Lune. This is a revelation from our Madurai Seraphim Allah say Stan Judas Kitab harvington zero.
the sending down of the book, revelation of the book.
So they've looked at, so they've looked at all the beginning of the sower, and they try to link it with something in the surah, which makes it sort of stand out. Of course, these are only the beginning words of the Torah,
the next generation of of people who should look into this now let's look into the actual sewer, which is his data is in front and to see
what are the spiritualities of these 28 sora that allows pantalla has used these words with for
I've given you an example of alpha meme Alif Lam Meem.
all my years of study and reading,
I've always come across the Hadith of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which says that one kind of acid kalami La ilaha illallah
wa sallam says,
a person's last words that he utters
other words, La Ilaha Illa, Allah
He will intergender
I'm very worried about this.
How am I going to say that in the halal life, I'm going to
coma harmonics Li Lyla louder when I'm so sick.
I can only move my hands. Don't worry. If you love La ilaha illa Allah
Allah will make you say la ilaha illa
Allah and if you are by your full senses
and you die and you did not live la li la la, no matter how many people will make the team for you, la la la la you will not live
the life and the end goes together life and the end of that life goes together got separated.
But this is always a this is always baffled me.
Why did an Ibiza Salam not say la ilaha illAllah you must say la ilaha illAllah Muhammadan Rasulullah
why only Laila a llama? We are told that the Cali Mize La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah but the Prophet liftout Mohammed and Rasulullah and so you might just say there is no Illa except Allah.
And I always say to myself inshallah, one day when I pass away from this world, I would like to say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad
until I discovered
that and seen a lot of people pass away.
That at that moment of passing away that last few moments, because that's the last few moments of your life when people that will standing around and saying
that the words La ilaha illAllah
requires your only to move your tongue and nothing else.
Say to yourself lai lai, la La, la, la la la la.
You don't even have to move your lips, La Ilaha Illa La, La La La La, La La to others made it so simple for us. That we don't need any energy we just need to move our tongue up and down. So hon Allah look at the mercy of Allah.
Allah would have said you must have seen before he died to go to general or you might say la ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah so Allah says, Allah says why he snappy Mohammed Salah someone say only that
he's great words. And then is what and this these words La la la la which is so simple to say, is the best the crew la people can do the prophets are solemn, on the deaf RF and say they are Salalah when arafa What are we doing? There's no sun. Ah, there's nothing we can do here.
Because Allah just wants me to be in your presence. But tell us give us some because we can make the property just say like a llama less. And the Prophet said that is the earth card because of all the ambia before 124,000 made only one bigger law.
Let me know that it goes to remember Allah. But this is the best. And everybody can say la ilaha illa.
And we should honor these words and love these words.
You know, I listened sometimes to the radio stations and listen to a particular radio station. This is particularly before the Salah before they are done. Or after the add on I can't remember where they have somebody translating the words of the Quran into English.
And every time this person translates those words of the Quran into English, it is like somebody stabs me in my heart.
You ask why?
Because the person who's translating
the Arabic into the English, he says Allah
and Allah says, And Allah says,
we are 2 billion Muslims, we can't find one person who can say the name of Allah, Allah.
Find that person to translate the Quran into another line to say the word.
The main says Allah, Allah, Allah as we already have. I can't. How is it possible that we've been listening to the radio for so many years, and this man has been on for so long?
And there's a loss of hardened Allah, the highest name that is given to the Lord of creation. We let me just come along and mess it up. I mean, if somebody says your name wrong,
okay, you say no, no, that's not my name. My name is this was my name. He said, right. You're not angry.
delegates in 2 billion Muslims allow people a piece of Muslim it is not a Muslim. But even if it is not a Muslim you should have been taught how to say the words how to say a lesson correctly a law. And we should teach our children how to say a law.
Like we should teach them as salaam alaikum.
Because we started off as a small with Salaam, but as we grow older, we should teach them the correct method of greeting, which is Salam O Allah.
So that gives us some indication of
the beauty of the latest.
Just come come out of our mouth. No. And we know the whole Quran is based on what is called Tajweed. phonetics, which is all about the Mahabharata, or where the words come from in the mouth, from the lips from the tongue isn't guttural, is it smooth? is an art is it? Ooh, did he.
And one of the miracles of his 14 letters, also that is used by allows panatela to open these particular sources.
contain these letters also contain
half of the letters of the Arabic alphabet, that gives a special intonation
to that particular letter.
That letters we have particularly like the color color, or the theme, this
it's a big lesson. So I'm just mentioning this to you. That the way the word he said, these 14 days to contain all those words, half of it alive is found in the other half of the alphabet. But in this half of the alphabet, all those letters were different kinds of places where they come from, they're often also in this 14 days. So panela who could have done this on their last Karnataka
so when you haven't even started that you've just started with olive lamb, even the miracle opens.
So heinola panel,
I want to say to you that
I don't consider these
words which assigned to you as lectures, I don't regard it as lectures, I am a teacher, and that regardless, you're my students, and I'm your teacher
and I want you to take it in that in that light in that spirit. So I always tell my students, when you come to class, always have a book in front of you, and a pen in your hand.
Because the pen and the book focuses you
and allow Swami says, I love you Allah, Allah, Allah.
Allah insulinoma love Yana.
He's the one who taught man by the pin over the pen.
And he said nundah book,
books and things is part of our spiritual
that we must use
to please our lost toys. A little book, find out make notes.
What have you write down every word you write down will appear in PMR 11 open your book and all the notes that you make will take you Oh, you said in that class it says yes. The book will compensate y'all I'm a witness. Yeah, this this this is what they wrote even even just one word.
But it's evidence. It's like Sala wherever you have made Salah in your life on that piece of Earth. That piece of earth will be a witness that us today to worship allows.
And you did all these evidences
you know to get what kitchen
I want to
the first word
which comes after me.
The first word that comes after Islam, you all know it hamdulillah Alif Lam mean? That Lika
Alif Lam Valley can keytab just a taste of inshallah Allah has not become in the future.
If you had known a little bit of Arabic,
you would have asked a very simple question on that.
Word daddy Calcutta.
You have asked your teacher or your brother or your father or whoever or yourself
Why does Allah say I leave la meme vaniqa Kitab what is I'm gonna say that book,
In it, there is no doubt. Allah says that he can pick up that book.
Why did I say this book?
Why does he say that book? Which book?
Now the non Muslims that orientalist when they,
when they comment on this, they say, Well, actually, that year means the Torah in the in the Bible and the Talmud in the Torah. That's why God says right from the beginning, that book, that book in which there is no doubt, because Alex, in other parts of the Quran, Allah refers to the Quran Allah says, handle orania de la te Aqua, Allah says this for an Li to that which is the best.
In other Quran, the ideal. So, in the inside the Quran, Allah, Allah, the Quran, Allah says
this Quran so why did Allah say in the beginning hottel Kitab al Islami heaven Kitab, Laurie, Buffy
was gonna say, this book. In it, there is no doubt
there's no medical
it's a another indication that this book is divine.
Don't write that book. This book is divine, absolutely divine.
So, and the miracle of Islam is not anything but the book.
That's why we should just get close to the miracle.
we look at other people, and we say, oh, that meant, you know, he did this miracle and he did that miracle indeed, that miracle was such a great man you know, he's a man that is farther and farther and farther and farther with so and so and so until you can trace its roots back to so and so. And you know, this is what he did.
What we can confirm that, we can confirm that the Quran is the medical record with us. So let's discover this miracle. And this journey inshallah will give us, for me and for you. Now, let's be honest, we all of us
to take this journey, in a way that it will be a pleasure and a joy for us to be able to see the divine miracle in the Quran which allows tarantella centers where our last pilot Allah grant all of us the capacity to understand that Allah guide us to realize the importance of knowledge and reading. And not only the Koran, read whatever books you want to read, read any book read all books.
Particularly Of course books connected to the deen of Allah.
May Allah Allah grant grounders good healthy channel. Now loss handler Granta set by us making the sacrifice to learn how to teach a loss handler will erase our sins not just forgive us but will erase our book of sins. Now loss Allah protect all of you protect all of us in these people say it's trying times but it's not actually look at the benefits that we have yet. It wasn't for the lockdown I wouldn't be sitting in you wouldn't be sitting at home and listening to this. If that is the only thing that allows one has given us enough. Don't give us more Yama and there are stop complaining.
Well altana Allah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Until we see again, inshallah
