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

This verse is in.

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

This is about non Muslims.

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

When they hear what has been revealed to

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

the prophets, they start shedding tears.

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

And what happened to us?

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

When do you cry?

00:00:22--> 00:00:24

That's the question that you all have to

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

ask. Men and women, I've seen men sobbing.

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

I have seen men sobbing and I have

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

seen women sobbing.

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

What makes you cry outside the Quran? Think

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

of it.

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

And then come bring it to the Quran

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

and say, can I do that?

00:00:42--> 00:00:43

What do I need?

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

And I will give you just a simple

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

clue.

00:00:47--> 00:00:49

The less distracted you are,

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

the more connected with the Quran, and the

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

more you will feel it.

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

The imam read beautifully.

00:00:57--> 00:00:57

Beautiful.

00:00:58--> 00:00:59

SubhanAllah.

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

It's I I was saying to my it's

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

coming from his heart.

00:01:03--> 00:01:06

Every word he's saying and he's reading slowly

00:01:07--> 00:01:08

and then

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

why didn't I move?

00:01:11--> 00:01:13

Then you have to ask Allah

00:01:13--> 00:01:16

before you come to Taraweeh. Don't watch things.

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

Don't be in the car and you're looking

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

at your social media. You're not going to

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

cry.

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

As you're coming,

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

prepare yourself

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

to be moved.

00:01:26--> 00:01:29

Read what he is gonna be reading.

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

Listen to a mukhara, to a reciter that

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

moves you as you are in the car.

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

If you're a family, make sure you put

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

it in the car and ask Allah to

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

move that heart.

00:01:41--> 00:01:43

And this is a saying,

00:01:43--> 00:01:47

whomsoever was given knowledge that will not make

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

him or her cry,

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

then he was not given the knowledge

00:01:51--> 00:01:54

because Allah described the knowledgeable people.

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

This is the 3 verses of the Quran

00:01:58--> 00:02:00

where Allah describes those

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

who knows Allah, who knows the Quran,

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

and they cry.

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

You will hear it in Surat Mariam.

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

The last verse in Surat Al Isra.

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

Remember the mountain I shared with you in

00:02:22--> 00:02:23

the beginning?

00:02:24--> 00:02:25

If the mountain

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

will get

00:02:27--> 00:02:27

goosebumps

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

in me,

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

Nothing happens?

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

And if my son or child gets sick,

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

I start crying?

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

Please forgive me, and sometimes we see movie.

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

You Allah,

00:02:42--> 00:02:43

movie.

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

And we start crying.

00:02:47--> 00:02:47

True?

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

Alhamdulillah.

00:02:51--> 00:02:52

What is this?

00:02:53--> 00:02:55

If you get this this then you're really

00:02:55--> 00:02:55

smart.

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

What is this?

00:03:02--> 00:03:05

It's a photography with a light. No.

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

Something to do with medicine. Clue.

00:03:09--> 00:03:10

Say that again.

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

That's fine. If you don't know it, I

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

will be very surprised.

00:03:19--> 00:03:19

Yes.

00:03:20--> 00:03:23

It's when the heart is in extreme fear,

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

that's what happens to it.

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

That's

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

are you a believer?

00:03:30--> 00:03:31

Show me hands.

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

2 hands.

00:03:35--> 00:03:36

That's the description.

00:03:39--> 00:03:41

In the Arabic language,

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

meaning it's that they say in the Arabic

00:03:44--> 00:03:48

language. Meaning everything comes come that comes after,

00:03:48--> 00:03:51

it has no other meaning but this meaning.

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

And that's what Allah said in Suratul Amfar.

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

You will hear it probably next week.

00:03:59--> 00:04:00

Verily the believer.

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

Those who are.

00:04:06--> 00:04:07

And it's not fear.

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

Is you know when you put water

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

in a pot and and the water start

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

boiling

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

very hard and then starts coming

00:04:17--> 00:04:17

up, that's

00:04:20--> 00:04:20

a.

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

I want you all take a picture of

00:04:26--> 00:04:27

this one.

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

Underline these three characters.

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

This is the

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

words of your lord. That's not me.

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

Meaning you're in

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

you

00:04:39--> 00:04:41

are in a lecture, you are reading the

00:04:41--> 00:04:44

Quran, you're listening to the Quran, doesn't matter.

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

This is of Allah.

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

3

00:04:48--> 00:04:49

things, my heart has to change,

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

my faith has to be stronger,

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

my relationship with Allah will change.

00:04:56--> 00:04:58

I'm gonna put these 3, I'm gonna make

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

them a goal. It's not gonna happen tomorrow

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

by the way,

00:05:01--> 00:05:04

Doesn't matter. Let it happen after a year.

00:05:04--> 00:05:07

I don't care, but let it happen. Let

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

it be.

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

And my faith

00:05:10--> 00:05:11

has to be stronger.

00:05:13--> 00:05:15

That's what Quran should do to me. I

00:05:15--> 00:05:16

need to cry.

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

I need to my faith be stronger,

00:05:19--> 00:05:23

my relationship with Allah, my skin change, my

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

fear and love

00:05:24--> 00:05:27

to with Allah, the feelings with Allah should

00:05:27--> 00:05:29

change. That's what the Quran

00:05:29--> 00:05:32

should change to me. Look at this picture.

00:05:33--> 00:05:36

I found this on Google years ago. I

00:05:36--> 00:05:38

know what I was looking for, and I

00:05:38--> 00:05:39

kept

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

it. What what

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

when you look at this, and I'm looking

00:05:43--> 00:05:43

at your faces,

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

many of you are smiling,

00:05:47--> 00:05:47

which is

00:05:48--> 00:05:49

true. Why you're smiling?

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

What makes you smile in this picture?

00:05:55--> 00:05:57

It's not only worshiping Allah. We all worship

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

Allah. Everybody was doing this outside.

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

What is the uniqueness

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

about his worship?

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

Say it. Trust in Allah. Say that again.

00:06:16--> 00:06:16

Absolutely.

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

We are gonna be very scared. I'm gonna

00:06:21--> 00:06:23

go for record. The boat will move.

00:06:24--> 00:06:25

And he left everything.

00:06:26--> 00:06:28

Of course, the colors are beautiful.

00:06:29--> 00:06:32

But what else that's unique in this picture?

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

He's a very simple man.

00:06:38--> 00:06:40

He didn't say, you know what, he's probably,

00:06:42--> 00:06:43

he's going for fishing.

00:06:44--> 00:06:46

He didn't say, you know what? When I'm

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

gonna make my salah, it's probably the fish

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

will go under the boat, and I'm missing

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

today's sustenance.

00:06:53--> 00:06:55

That's what happened to us.

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

We don't do this because we are not

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

fishermen,

00:06:59--> 00:07:01

but we go to work and we

00:07:01--> 00:07:02

miss

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

our

00:07:03--> 00:07:04

salah.

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

Right?

00:07:05--> 00:07:06

Right?

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

And people look at me and says, I

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

can do it. And I say, why not?

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

Well, doctor Eunice, you know and I'm talking

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

about there, not here.

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

And I and he said, what? He says,

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

you know, I mean, who's gonna give me

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

a place to pray? I was not really.

00:07:19--> 00:07:22

There's no single place to pray. Everybody is

00:07:22--> 00:07:23

looking at me. I said, everybody always look

00:07:23--> 00:07:24

at each other.

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

This is one of the unique things. There's

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

2 things at at least caught my eyes.

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

He was not scared

00:07:33--> 00:07:35

because it could easily a wind comes in

00:07:35--> 00:07:36

and

00:07:36--> 00:07:37

flip him,

00:07:38--> 00:07:40

and he didn't make his work

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

Take him away from Allah

00:07:45--> 00:07:47

That's what we should be.

00:07:47--> 00:07:49

And this is also in Surat Mariam.

00:07:50--> 00:07:52

When I say Allahu Akbar

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

do you know Sheikh Saeed Al Kamli? How

00:07:55--> 00:07:56

many of you know him?

00:07:57--> 00:07:59

He was actually recently here, I think.

00:07:59--> 00:08:00

You know him?

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

If you don't know him, you need to

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

know him.

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

He has a beautiful

00:08:05--> 00:08:07

I think it's less than a minute or

00:08:07--> 00:08:07

2

00:08:08--> 00:08:10

clip about Allahu Akbar.

00:08:11--> 00:08:13

I think was one of the best I've

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

heard.

00:08:14--> 00:08:15

What does it mean

00:08:16--> 00:08:18

when you say Allahu Akbar? Go and find

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

it. It's on on the on the YouTube.

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

Just say, Sayid Al Kamdi Allahu Akbar. You

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

will find it right away.

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

And this is basically what it is.

00:08:26--> 00:08:28

When you say Allahu Akbar

00:08:28--> 00:08:30

and you're reading, you're listening to the Quran,

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

everything else outside

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

should be

00:08:34--> 00:08:37

much smaller because you said Allahu Akbar.

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

When you open the Quran, it's His words,

00:08:41--> 00:08:42

those words

00:08:42--> 00:08:44

bigger than anything else.

00:08:44--> 00:08:46

That's how I should be.

00:08:48--> 00:08:49

So time for shift,

00:08:50--> 00:08:50

change.

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

Change the receiver,

00:08:53--> 00:08:54

change the receiver,

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

and the receiver is the heart.

00:09:00--> 00:09:04

Because everywhere in the Quran Allah subhanahu wa

00:09:04--> 00:09:05

ta'ala talked about the heart.

00:09:06--> 00:09:08

He didn't say the brain.

00:09:11--> 00:09:12

Don't they have hearts?

00:09:13--> 00:09:15

And the hearts are supposed to

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

comprehend.

00:09:18--> 00:09:20

This is also tomorrow. You'll read it in.

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

Their hearts

00:09:27--> 00:09:28

locked,

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

completely wrapped.

00:09:32--> 00:09:35

I need to work on my heart, and

00:09:35--> 00:09:37

this is a whole different lecture one day,

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

Insha'Allah, or you can actually also find it

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

in the tazkiya,

00:09:41--> 00:09:43

series. So the hearts the problem is the

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

hearts, and that's what Allah says.

00:09:46--> 00:09:48

You drive, you see the sea,

00:09:49--> 00:09:50

you see the food.

00:09:51--> 00:09:52

Even when the food you look at the

00:09:52--> 00:09:54

food, subhanallah, when they got me

00:09:56--> 00:09:57

when he got they got me the the

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

iftar I looked and I was like you

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

Allah

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

look at the color of the food.

00:10:03--> 00:10:05

Literally, I was just looking. I was like,

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

subhanallah,

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

every one, especially the the one that is

00:10:09--> 00:10:12

not really cooked, meaning the fresh ones, has

00:10:12--> 00:10:14

creation of Allah directly

00:10:14--> 00:10:16

on this table. I look and say,

00:10:18--> 00:10:19

what colors are these?

00:10:21--> 00:10:22

Who are you?

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

The more you do this when you stand

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

up in that salah

00:10:26--> 00:10:28

and you hear that those words of Allah

00:10:28--> 00:10:30

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, you'll move.

00:10:31--> 00:10:31

Absolutely.

00:10:33--> 00:10:34

Yes or no?

00:10:36--> 00:10:37

Yes or no? Really?

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

Are you gonna stay to your word?

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

You're not gonna change it?

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

When was the last time you gave the

00:10:47--> 00:10:48

Quran gift of flowers?

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

Okay.

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

This is the signs you love.

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

True or false? Not the Quran in general.

00:10:59--> 00:11:01

Right? You see someone you love and you're

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

so happy,

00:11:03--> 00:11:05

and you look at her at his face

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

or you look at her face and say

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

she's in love.

00:11:08--> 00:11:10

Look what happened to her face when he

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

came

00:11:11--> 00:11:13

Or look at his face. He is absolutely

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

in love with her.

00:11:16--> 00:11:16

Right?

00:11:17--> 00:11:17

Yes?

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

Okay.

00:11:19--> 00:11:21

And you love to spend a lot you

00:11:21--> 00:11:22

know, they they talk on the phone for

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

hours.

00:11:24--> 00:11:26

Right? It's 3 AM in the morning, they're

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

still talking, they don't get

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

tired. Okay?

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

You'll miss them

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

if you love them? Yes?

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

Yes or no?

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

And you always talk to them and take

00:11:37--> 00:11:39

their opinion. Even if you know the answer,

00:11:39--> 00:11:40

you still call them,

00:11:41--> 00:11:41

right,

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

and you obey them.

00:11:44--> 00:11:44

Yes?

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

So do you love the Quran?

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

Do you love the Quran? You all said

00:11:52--> 00:11:52

yes.

00:11:53--> 00:11:54

Okay. So do you are happy to be

00:11:54--> 00:11:56

with the Quran or you keep flipping how

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

much left?

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

Okay. Do you spend long time

00:12:04--> 00:12:05

as long as

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

on social media?

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

Do you miss the Quran?

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

You

00:12:13--> 00:12:14

you're all laughing.

00:12:16--> 00:12:17

So when you leave the phone

00:12:18--> 00:12:20

and you left the house and the phone

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

is in the house, what will happen usually?

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

Panic and you go back,

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

right?

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

What happens if you love the Quran?

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

Don't answer me, you know the answer.

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

We're getting to the end of it.

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

This is what you need.

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

We love the Quran, I have no doubt,

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

but we don't love the Quran deep,

00:12:46--> 00:12:48

and we don't love the Quran genuine. You

00:12:48--> 00:12:50

know what I'm what I'm saying? Of course,

00:12:50--> 00:12:51

we love it.

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

But it's just like when you say, do

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

you love your mom? Of course, I love

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

my mom because she's my mom. That's very

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

different

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

than when you say, I not only love

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

my mom, I adore her.

00:13:01--> 00:13:03

You don't know what she did for me.

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

That's a complete different answer.

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

So number 1, you need to do dua.

00:13:10--> 00:13:12

Absolutely dua. And Allah said this, and He

00:13:12--> 00:13:13

read it to you today also.

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

Allah will will answer it.

00:13:18--> 00:13:19

And this is

00:13:20--> 00:13:23

I'm gonna yeah. That's the dua, actually.

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

I want you all to know it. It's

00:13:25--> 00:13:26

actually it's dua.

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

This is a dua when you feel bad,

00:13:29--> 00:13:32

when you feel down, when you feel sad.

00:13:32--> 00:13:35

That's the the dua. If you Google and

00:13:35--> 00:13:37

you say, which what should I say when

00:13:37--> 00:13:37

I am

00:13:37--> 00:13:38

in pain?

00:13:39--> 00:13:41

I am feeling down. So actually this is

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

the dua, but it's also the dua for

00:13:43--> 00:13:44

making the Quran

00:13:45--> 00:13:46

the spring of your heart. That's why I

00:13:46--> 00:13:48

put it in in red.

00:13:56--> 00:13:58

And I make it for you here in

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

in bold.

00:13:59--> 00:14:00

Make the Quran

00:14:01--> 00:14:03

the spring of my heart. Pay attention to

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

the words

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

that Rasul, alaihis salatu, wasalam, said.

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

He said, spring,

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

the light of my chest,

00:14:10--> 00:14:11

the remover

00:14:11--> 00:14:14

of all my sadness and the reliever of

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

my distress.

00:14:16--> 00:14:17

Why did he say spring?

00:14:19--> 00:14:20

What is spring?

00:14:23--> 00:14:25

So rabiya is a is a season.

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

And what is the other meaning for rabiya?

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

Nam?

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

Well, that's all for the season.

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

I looked up actually.

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

Why do we feel good for Rabia?

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

In a season, why do we feel good?

00:14:45--> 00:14:46

We all we all love it. Yeah. Right?

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

I mean, I love the weather now. What

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

is this? It's beautiful. Right?

00:14:50--> 00:14:52

Sky clear, you see the sun, the the

00:14:52--> 00:14:54

temperature is beautiful, the breeze is nice, and

00:14:54--> 00:14:56

this is what they say, spring because there

00:14:56--> 00:14:57

is a daylight

00:14:58--> 00:15:01

and it's increased actually the brain, it's everything

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

goes to the brain and what it trigger

00:15:03--> 00:15:05

in the brain. So Rasool alaihi wa sallam

00:15:06--> 00:15:07

taught you and me

00:15:08--> 00:15:09

that Allah makes the Quran

00:15:10--> 00:15:13

the spring of my heart. What's the spring

00:15:13--> 00:15:14

brings to me

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

in feelings, this season, I want the Quran

00:15:17--> 00:15:18

the same way.

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

Are you all with me? Okay. And then

00:15:21--> 00:15:22

look at this.

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

I'm sure you see this also. You will

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

see this when I go back

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

In spring, certain parts of the United States,

00:15:30--> 00:15:31

that's exactly what you see.

00:15:32--> 00:15:35

And people literally compete in their especially in

00:15:35--> 00:15:37

the front of their homes because you don't

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

have a huge area, and you just put

00:15:39--> 00:15:41

different colors of the flowers, and they all

00:15:41--> 00:15:42

will bloom.

00:15:43--> 00:15:43

Now

00:15:44--> 00:15:46

that's the other meaning of spring.

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

Spring in English

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

is the

00:15:52--> 00:15:55

time, but also it is spring of water.

00:15:55--> 00:15:57

And what does water do?

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

Read this verse.

00:16:06--> 00:16:08

In Arabic or in English?

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

This is the end of Surah al Surah.

00:16:12--> 00:16:13

This is how Allah described the Quran.

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

What is?

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

Translate?

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

Life.

00:16:24--> 00:16:26

When we say someone died what happened?

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

The

00:16:28--> 00:16:28

the

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

soul left the body.

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

Allah told

00:16:33--> 00:16:33

the

00:16:33--> 00:16:35

the Quran is the life.

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

It's your life and mine.

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

He didn't know anything. What is faith? What

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

is book?

00:16:49--> 00:16:52

Look at the Quran, and this I think

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

if you look at it this way, this

00:16:54--> 00:16:55

verse, it will change you.

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

Keep reminding yourself that this is how it

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

is. Read about the Quran.

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

And this one, I love this. It's in

00:17:03--> 00:17:04

suratun.

00:17:06--> 00:17:06

Read

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

the 2 verses.

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

Guide.

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

Mercy to the believers.

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

2nd 1,

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

we need to remind ourselves.

00:17:24--> 00:17:24

Read it.

00:17:27--> 00:17:30

By the grace of Allah and His mercy.

00:17:30--> 00:17:32

Most scholars tell you the mercy here is

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

the Quran. Let them rejoice.

00:17:34--> 00:17:36

When you pick the Quran, look at it

00:17:36--> 00:17:39

as if someone gift just gifted you, a

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

gift worth

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

of and put numbers

00:17:42--> 00:17:43

and put zeros

00:17:44--> 00:17:46

add to it. It's way better than what

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

they are collecting.

00:17:48--> 00:17:50

What are we collecting?

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

The more Allah gives us the more we

00:17:54--> 00:17:54

collect.

00:17:55--> 00:17:56

I'll just share a quick if you allow

00:17:56--> 00:17:57

me. I know I took a lot of

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

your time.

00:17:59--> 00:18:00

At one time, I was looking for a

00:18:00--> 00:18:01

house,

00:18:02--> 00:18:03

and the agent was showing me the house

00:18:03--> 00:18:05

and said, this is very clean house, you

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

know,

00:18:06--> 00:18:08

they didn't have children, the husband died, and

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

then the woman, the wife lived here

00:18:11--> 00:18:13

herself, and she took very good care of

00:18:13--> 00:18:14

the house. I was like okay, normally there

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

when you see when you go to buy

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

a house usually go to the bedroom.

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

SubhanAllah what Allah showed me.

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

I went to the bedroom and the agent

00:18:23--> 00:18:25

was saying, it's a huge closet, I was

00:18:25--> 00:18:26

like okay. So I go to the closet.

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

Full of

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

clothes,

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

brand name,

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

you name it, the name is there

00:18:35--> 00:18:35

in the tag,

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

and the woman died.

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

That's what we are collecting.

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

Collecting things when we die,

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

someone's gonna worry

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

what they're gonna do with it. Have you

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

ever lost someone dear to you and you

00:18:54--> 00:18:56

had to go to their closet?

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

May Allah not let you do that.

00:19:01--> 00:19:02

And then you look at them, they're gone.

00:19:03--> 00:19:05

And this is

00:19:05--> 00:19:08

having the Quran, looking at the Quran as

00:19:09--> 00:19:10

a treasure

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

way better than what you are collecting in

00:19:13--> 00:19:14

your closet,

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

in your business, in the bank account is

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

way better.

00:19:20--> 00:19:22

And then I'm gonna just because of the

00:19:22--> 00:19:22

time,

00:19:23--> 00:19:24

the Quran can give me

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

happiness.

00:19:28--> 00:19:31

This is in Surah Taha. 1st Ayah. 2nd,

00:19:34--> 00:19:36

Quran was not given to me to make

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

my life hard

00:19:37--> 00:19:39

or difficult or challenging.

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

No. On the contrary,

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

you should give me peace

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

and you all know this.

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

Have you ever tried show me hand

00:19:52--> 00:19:54

hands? Have you ever felt

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

anxious, sad,

00:19:56--> 00:19:58

not feeling well? Show me your hands.

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

Of course.

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

Have you ever tried reading the Quran at

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

that moment?

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

And what happened to you?

00:20:07--> 00:20:10

Every time this happens, I remember this verse.

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

It never failed me

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

whether I stood up for 2 rakat

00:20:16--> 00:20:19

to to talk to Allah or I picked

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

it up or I just remembered the verse

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

or sometimes I just remember this verse, and

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

I was like, yeah, true.

00:20:25--> 00:20:28

True. That's what nothing else will give me,

00:20:29--> 00:20:30

and it's a guide

00:20:30--> 00:20:31

to me,

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

and it's my life.

00:20:34--> 00:20:36

Absolutely, it is my life.

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

If they only know.

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

What is this?

00:20:43--> 00:20:45

What did we see recently?

00:20:47--> 00:20:48

What did they do?

00:20:51--> 00:20:52

They burned it.

00:20:54--> 00:20:55

And why do you think they did that?

00:20:57--> 00:20:59

Because they didn't know.

00:21:00--> 00:21:01

Because if I knew

00:21:02--> 00:21:03

where the walking Quran,

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

they will have never done that.

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

If I knew

00:21:10--> 00:21:11

no Quran

00:21:11--> 00:21:13

the way Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala wants me

00:21:13--> 00:21:14

and you,

00:21:15--> 00:21:17

they will never be ignorant.

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

They will know what it is.

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

How many people celebrities

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

and I'm not going to mention names, but

00:21:25--> 00:21:28

you probably know who just embraced Islam recently.

00:21:29--> 00:21:31

Right? Very influential man.

00:21:32--> 00:21:33

Why?

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

Because he knew.

00:21:36--> 00:21:37

Because he knew.

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

So when you look at

00:21:40--> 00:21:42

the unfortunate incident,

00:21:43--> 00:21:45

the first thing when I saw it,

00:21:45--> 00:21:47

I was like, I didn't do my job

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

well.

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

I as a Muslim

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

didn't do my job well

00:21:53--> 00:21:55

because if I told my neighbor,

00:21:55--> 00:21:57

I told my co worker

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

little bit about Islam

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

whether in me, in my actions,

00:22:02--> 00:22:05

or every now and then a word or

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

2.

00:22:07--> 00:22:09

And imagine every Muslim, the 1,800,000,000,

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

1,000,000,000,

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

would they even think of it?

00:22:16--> 00:22:17

They didn't know.

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

So may Allah make

00:22:23--> 00:22:24

the Quran

00:22:24--> 00:22:26

the spring of our hearts.

00:22:29--> 00:22:32

May Allah make and bless your Ramadan,

00:22:34--> 00:22:36

and may Allah bless this country. This was

00:22:36--> 00:22:39

from this morning from my room actually.

00:22:40--> 00:22:40

I couldn't.

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

I was reading Finnish, I was doing my

00:22:43--> 00:22:44

and I just turned.

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

And I said,

00:22:47--> 00:22:48

what is this?

00:22:49--> 00:22:50

And I just took the picture.

00:23:02--> 00:23:03

You are amazing.

00:23:03--> 00:23:05

I've never seen such an audience.

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

No, don't do that.

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

No, really. You are so

00:23:11--> 00:23:13

paying attention, and I was like, I wanna

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

be hard, I can be hard, I wanna

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

make a joke. Jazakumullah.

00:23:17--> 00:23:18

I don't know if we have time for

00:23:18--> 00:23:20

question answers. I don't know.

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

Yes, we do. Okay. So I'll leave it

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

up to you.

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

Alhamdulillah,

00:23:25--> 00:23:26

it takes an hour and

00:23:27--> 00:23:29

If anyone has a question,

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

feel free. If you don't, that's fine. We

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

definitely have a lot of things to do.

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

Okay.

00:23:41--> 00:23:43

Can we please, if we're gonna leave, leave

00:23:43--> 00:23:44

quietly to

00:23:45--> 00:23:47

so we can give our respect to the

00:23:47--> 00:23:48

person who's asking.

00:23:58--> 00:24:00

The benefit of memorizing the Quran and Ramadan.

00:24:00--> 00:24:02

The benefit of memorizing the Quran. No. Obviously,

00:24:02--> 00:24:04

Ramadan shahrakh Quran and we should strive to

00:24:04--> 00:24:07

give it our entire time. Yes. But given

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

how this dunya is, if I find myself

00:24:10--> 00:24:12

short for time, do I go for like

00:24:12--> 00:24:13

reading my word or memorizing?

00:24:13--> 00:24:16

Okay. So if I'm gonna repeat the question

00:24:16--> 00:24:18

because the question has needs to be little

00:24:18--> 00:24:20

bit changed. So she said, if

00:24:21--> 00:24:22

I found

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

my time

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

short,

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

so do I read my word or start

00:24:28--> 00:24:29

memorizing the Quran?

00:24:35--> 00:24:37

My first question, why if

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

if you're telling I'm not you, but in

00:24:41--> 00:24:42

general,

00:24:42--> 00:24:44

people are different categories. There is no one

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

answer fit all.

00:24:46--> 00:24:48

There's no one size fit all. So if

00:24:48--> 00:24:49

I am a mother,

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

a wife,

00:24:52--> 00:24:52

a daughter,

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

and I'm a full time worker.

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

I won't have help in the house. Of

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

course, I say this because we are in

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

this part of the world. And if in

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

the United States, I will not even put

00:25:02--> 00:25:03

this because there isn't. Right?

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

Then the if applies

00:25:08--> 00:25:10

because I'm really gonna be very short in

00:25:10--> 00:25:10

time

00:25:11--> 00:25:12

especially during the week.

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

But

00:25:15--> 00:25:17

if I am not these 5, then the

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

if doesn't apply.

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

Meaning,

00:25:21--> 00:25:23

you want to start your memorization of the

00:25:23--> 00:25:26

Quran. You're not gonna memorize 1 juz a

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

day.

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

You're probably gonna barely be able to do

00:25:29--> 00:25:30

1 or 2 or 3 ayaat

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

a day because you're gonna find it challenging

00:25:33--> 00:25:34

in the beginning

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

to focus,

00:25:35--> 00:25:37

to remember, to read it well.

00:25:38--> 00:25:39

Can you spare 2 hours of the day

00:25:39--> 00:25:40

for the Quran?

00:25:44--> 00:25:46

How many hours I spend in the kitchen?

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

Or how many hours I spend at work?

00:25:51--> 00:25:53

Or how many hours I spend on social

00:25:53--> 00:25:54

media,

00:25:54--> 00:25:55

on TV.

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

After,

00:25:58--> 00:26:00

you come full of energy.

00:26:01--> 00:26:02

Have you seen? This is amazing. I always

00:26:02--> 00:26:05

tell my non Muslim friends. We stand up

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

there for 2 hours, dead tired. I get

00:26:07--> 00:26:09

home, and I'm full of energy. I just

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

can't sleep. She said, really? I said, yeah,

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

I can.

00:26:13--> 00:26:14

So what do you normally do?

00:26:15--> 00:26:16

Don't tell me.

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

You

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

know the famous line, there is a will,

00:26:23--> 00:26:24

there is a way?

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

I can't tell you how much I can

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

tell you. I am one of the witnesses

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

of this.

00:26:29--> 00:26:30

When you put your

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

focus

00:26:32--> 00:26:34

on memorizing the Quran, I have seen

00:26:36--> 00:26:37

it in the car,

00:26:37--> 00:26:38

in the elevator,

00:26:39--> 00:26:39

waiting.

00:26:40--> 00:26:42

She's reviewing her Quran. And one of the

00:26:42--> 00:26:44

person saw her Quran,

00:26:45--> 00:26:46

looked at us and says,

00:26:47--> 00:26:48

for sure,

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

will

00:26:50--> 00:26:53

not will not say to you, you took

00:26:53--> 00:26:55

the Quran neglected, if you see her Quran.

00:26:56--> 00:26:57

Don't say if.

00:26:58--> 00:27:01

That's my advice. You're still young. You can

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

do it.

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

I'm telling you.

00:27:04--> 00:27:06

You know what? In the morning, I'm gonna

00:27:06--> 00:27:09

memorize. In the in the afternoon, I'm gonna

00:27:09--> 00:27:11

do my wood. In the evening after tara'i,

00:27:11--> 00:27:12

I'm gonna review my Quran. How long it

00:27:12--> 00:27:15

will take? 3 hours? It's still 21 hours

00:27:15--> 00:27:16

in the day.

00:27:17--> 00:27:19

Just just raise the bar as we say.

00:27:20--> 00:27:21

Raise the bar.

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

Be a plus student with Allah,

00:27:24--> 00:27:26

and this is the journey of the memorization.

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

It goes up like that.

00:27:29--> 00:27:32

50, 60% of the people will fall.

00:27:32--> 00:27:33

They quit.

00:27:33--> 00:27:36

It's too hard. I can't. I forget. I'm

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

too old. You name it, shaitan is gonna

00:27:38--> 00:27:40

come to you. Keep going. You're gonna reach

00:27:40--> 00:27:42

here. It's usually when you have at least

00:27:42--> 00:27:43

an Ibsa.

00:27:44--> 00:27:46

By 15, for sure, you are there.

00:27:47--> 00:27:49

Afterward, it's gonna go like that.

00:27:50--> 00:27:52

You read 1 page, and the page is

00:27:52--> 00:27:54

done, and you say, how has that happened?

00:27:54--> 00:27:55

And it's a lifelong

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

journey.

00:27:57--> 00:27:58

Don't you think

00:27:59--> 00:28:01

the imam who read today,

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

and no mistake,

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

don't you think he did not review before

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

he came?

00:28:07--> 00:28:09

I was told the of the haram,

00:28:10--> 00:28:12

one read to the other before they read

00:28:12--> 00:28:14

because it is a lifelong journey.

00:28:14--> 00:28:17

There is no one does not make a

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

mistake in the Quran.

00:28:18--> 00:28:21

One time. And as one of my teachers

00:28:21--> 00:28:22

when I used to get Yani, I was

00:28:22--> 00:28:25

like, when is this gonna be better? She

00:28:25--> 00:28:27

said, she you just look at me and

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

says,

00:28:30--> 00:28:32

That's how she she looked at me and

00:28:32--> 00:28:34

says, the words of Allah, it's that loftiest,

00:28:35--> 00:28:36

nothing above it. Do Do you think he's

00:28:36--> 00:28:38

you're gonna memorize it like that? Of course,

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

you're gonna make mistakes.

00:28:40--> 00:28:43

Raise the bar, give it more time, make

00:28:43--> 00:28:45

it as a priority, and see what Allah

00:28:45--> 00:28:45

will give you.

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

You

00:28:51--> 00:28:52

don't wanna move into

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

Everybody is sitting.

00:28:56--> 00:28:56

Alhamdulillah,

00:28:57--> 00:28:59

that's the most important thing. Alhamdulillahirban.

00:29:00--> 00:29:01

Any question?

00:29:02--> 00:29:04

Yes, please. Go ahead.

00:29:07--> 00:29:08

I don't I don't know if this is

00:29:08--> 00:29:10

working because they're passing the mic.

00:29:11--> 00:29:13

Yeah. She tried, but I don't think it

00:29:13--> 00:29:15

worked. Can you hear me now? Thank you

00:29:15--> 00:29:17

very much for this interesting and deep lecture.

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

I I'm sorry?

00:29:18--> 00:29:21

I said thank you for this interesting and

00:29:21--> 00:29:22

deep lecture.

00:29:22--> 00:29:25

I came from a country where people are

00:29:25--> 00:29:28

really memorizing Quran. Which country you are from?

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

Oh, they memorize there too? I thought Somalia

00:29:31--> 00:29:32

usually is number 1.

00:29:34--> 00:29:37

As well. So people are really paying, like

00:29:37--> 00:29:41

putting their effort to memorize Quran rather than

00:29:41--> 00:29:44

like add True. And like do what Quran

00:29:44--> 00:29:46

say. So do you think it's important

00:29:46--> 00:29:49

to memorize the whole Quran and there is

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

no even

00:29:50--> 00:29:51

one Iya like in

00:29:52--> 00:29:54

I think it's most important

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

What do you think It's a very nice

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

question, actually, and she said it beautifully in

00:30:03--> 00:30:05

the Arabic. This is always a dilemma.

00:30:05--> 00:30:07

Should I memorize the Quran

00:30:07--> 00:30:08

without understanding?

00:30:09--> 00:30:11

And like a bird, I call it bird.

00:30:12--> 00:30:13

You know, you hear the voice is beautiful,

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

but the bird doesn't know what he's saying.

00:30:15--> 00:30:17

Or should I spend time on understanding?

00:30:19--> 00:30:20

The idea is both.

00:30:21--> 00:30:22

If I have a child,

00:30:23--> 00:30:25

for 6 or a 7 year old, absolutely,

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

I'll make him memorize it. It takes him

00:30:27--> 00:30:28

only 2 years.

00:30:29--> 00:30:31

Let this blessing be in his heart or

00:30:31--> 00:30:32

her heart. And by the way,

00:30:33--> 00:30:34

Hafidul Quran,

00:30:35--> 00:30:37

you know, it was, said to, I think,

00:30:37--> 00:30:39

Al Hasan al Basri. He was told, this

00:30:39--> 00:30:41

man is Hafidul Quran. He said, no.

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

He is not a Hafid Al Quran. The

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

Quran is.

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

The Quran protect him.

00:30:49--> 00:30:51

Is to memorize, it's also to protect in

00:30:51--> 00:30:53

the Arabic language. So if you go there

00:30:53--> 00:30:55

and I've seen it also, I see it

00:30:55--> 00:30:57

in Africa, actually I've been there, There is

00:30:57--> 00:30:59

so much stuff. You go to South Africa

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

special,

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

assume there's an emphasis on memorizing the Quran.

00:31:03--> 00:31:05

Keep it. Because now people is gonna come

00:31:05--> 00:31:07

and tell you, don't memorize,

00:31:07--> 00:31:09

understand, and then we lose both.

00:31:10--> 00:31:12

So let's keep that, but can I have

00:31:12--> 00:31:14

them both in general in general?

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

As you are in the journey of the

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

memorization,

00:31:17--> 00:31:19

it's a journey. Look at the word I

00:31:19--> 00:31:21

said. As you go on, as when you

00:31:21--> 00:31:23

finish because when you finish, it doesn't finish.

00:31:23--> 00:31:24

You have to review.

00:31:25--> 00:31:27

And then as you go there, one of

00:31:27--> 00:31:30

the ways to make the Quran solid

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

is to understand the meanings.

00:31:32--> 00:31:34

And it will be very nice for mothers

00:31:34--> 00:31:37

or parents or fathers is as your child

00:31:37--> 00:31:39

you're viewing as you are reviewing with the

00:31:39--> 00:31:39

child,

00:31:40--> 00:31:41

you keep telling

00:31:41--> 00:31:43

him every day one verse, every day one

00:31:43--> 00:31:44

verse.

00:31:44--> 00:31:46

And remember, in 10 years, how many verses?

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

And then it will

00:31:48--> 00:31:49

change. But definitely,

00:31:50--> 00:31:51

it will protect you, but it will not

00:31:51--> 00:31:53

change you unless you know the meanings.

00:31:54--> 00:31:57

Sorry. Second part of the question. If I

00:31:57--> 00:31:59

memorize the Quran and I didn't review it

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

and I forget it,

00:32:01--> 00:32:03

people always say you have to keep it

00:32:03--> 00:32:05

if you just get a chance. I don't

00:32:05--> 00:32:07

say. She says the question is if I

00:32:07--> 00:32:08

don't mem I memorize but I don't review,

00:32:08--> 00:32:11

and if you don't review, it moves it

00:32:11--> 00:32:12

runs out.

00:32:12--> 00:32:13

Runs, runs.

00:32:14--> 00:32:15

You know what I say? And I don't

00:32:15--> 00:32:18

like this thermal punishment. You know what I

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

say

00:32:19--> 00:32:20

to myself?

00:32:21--> 00:32:23

And I actually said it recently to somebody.

00:32:23--> 00:32:25

I said, what did you do that Allah

00:32:25--> 00:32:27

removed his words from your heart?

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

Do you see the point? Change the relationship

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

with Allah.

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

Don't make it punishment.

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

It becomes so

00:32:39--> 00:32:40

lack of feelings.

00:32:41--> 00:32:43

You love Allah, you love his word, and

00:32:43--> 00:32:45

he gave it to you, and suddenly he

00:32:45--> 00:32:45

decide.

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

I don't want to say the word because

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

it's painful.

00:32:49--> 00:32:51

You know what I'm saying? Somebody loves you,

00:32:51--> 00:32:53

and then he keeps texting you,

00:32:54--> 00:32:55

and suddenly stops.

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

He or she,

00:32:57--> 00:32:57

what happens?

00:32:58--> 00:33:00

Gonna say, what did I do?

00:33:01--> 00:33:03

Is he okay? She's okay? Okay. Now, they

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

are okay.

00:33:04--> 00:33:05

So what did I do?

00:33:05--> 00:33:07

That's how I say.

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

I said this something to somebody also recently,

00:33:10--> 00:33:12

I I stopped seeing them in fajr.

00:33:12--> 00:33:14

I was like, what happened?

00:33:15--> 00:33:17

And they said, what do you say? I

00:33:17--> 00:33:19

said, why doesn't Allah wants to see you

00:33:19--> 00:33:20

on the first row?

00:33:23--> 00:33:25

And they got the message. They said, it's

00:33:25--> 00:33:26

dunya.

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

So this is how I look at it,

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

and I don't take it as an excuse.

00:33:32--> 00:33:34

I'm not gonna I heard this, by the

00:33:34--> 00:33:37

way. I'm not gonna memorize because I'm worried

00:33:37--> 00:33:39

if I am gonna forget. I was like,

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

who are you dealing with?

00:33:41--> 00:33:42

You're dealing with Allah,

00:33:43--> 00:33:44

the generous.

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

You want to memorize His words and you

00:33:47--> 00:33:49

feel bad you're forgetting. He's not gonna give

00:33:49--> 00:33:51

it to you? He will. You know, change

00:33:51--> 00:33:54

the way you you interact with Allah Subhanahu

00:33:54--> 00:33:56

Wa Ta'ala from like I you don't deal

00:33:56--> 00:33:58

with Allah like you deal with me and

00:33:58--> 00:33:59

I deal with you.

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

It's Allah.

00:34:00--> 00:34:03

So absolutely start the journey. Keep do the

00:34:03--> 00:34:06

memorization. Ask Allah to make you understand. He

00:34:06--> 00:34:08

will. And if I die and I didn't,

00:34:08--> 00:34:09

I'm on the journey.

00:34:09--> 00:34:10

He will reward you.

00:34:12--> 00:34:14

Thank you. Yes, please.

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

I don't know who was oh, I'm sorry.

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

Yeah. Please forgive me. You'll be next.

00:34:23--> 00:34:24

Yeah. Go ahead.

00:34:40--> 00:34:41

Okay. So this is for the people who

00:34:41--> 00:34:42

doesn't know

00:34:43--> 00:34:45

Arabic and you read the translation. That's a

00:34:45--> 00:34:47

challenge. That's why I'm gonna say this before

00:34:47--> 00:34:49

I answer. It's a very good question, by

00:34:49--> 00:34:51

the way. For all of you who understand

00:34:51--> 00:34:51

the Arabic,

00:34:52--> 00:34:53

this may sound hard,

00:34:54--> 00:34:56

but it's about time, it's Ramadan.

00:34:56--> 00:34:57

What is your excuse

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

in front of Allah

00:35:01--> 00:35:03

when you don't understand the Quran.

00:35:04--> 00:35:07

And have a friend who doesn't know Arabi

00:35:07--> 00:35:09

and see the struggle they go through.

00:35:10--> 00:35:13

I become this this this size when I'm

00:35:13--> 00:35:14

with my friends

00:35:14--> 00:35:17

who they struggle to read, And which tafsir,

00:35:18--> 00:35:19

and is that the right meaning?

00:35:20--> 00:35:21

And I was like, I read it.

00:35:23--> 00:35:25

For the children, start with 1 tafsir. I

00:35:25--> 00:35:26

always say this. Start with

00:35:27--> 00:35:29

1, the simplest one, and even not with

00:35:29--> 00:35:30

the children in general.

00:35:30--> 00:35:32

The what I found is one of the

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

easiest if you are starting from ground 0,

00:35:35--> 00:35:37

You you know nothing about the Quran in

00:35:37--> 00:35:39

English. You start with

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

because it is translated, the 2.

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

And then you need to go a little

00:35:44--> 00:35:46

bit deeper, higher up, then you go to

00:35:47--> 00:35:48

because it's translated.

00:35:49--> 00:35:50

Now the the the thing what you need

00:35:50--> 00:35:52

is you don't only need a translation, you

00:35:52--> 00:35:55

need a good translation and easy to read

00:35:55--> 00:35:57

because that's the issue. So for example, Yusuf

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

Ali is one of the, like, landmark of

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

Quran translation, but the language is very difficult.

00:36:03--> 00:36:05

He used Shakespearean English.

00:36:05--> 00:36:05

So

00:36:06--> 00:36:08

and. Right? There is also,

00:36:09--> 00:36:11

god, I forgot the name whose 2 women

00:36:11--> 00:36:13

actually did it. I I interviewed her in

00:36:13--> 00:36:15

one of, on Tuesday program.

00:36:17--> 00:36:19

What is the name of it? SubhanAllah. It's

00:36:19--> 00:36:20

2 women translate very easy.

00:36:22--> 00:36:22

International.

00:36:24--> 00:36:25

Right. Very easy.

00:36:26--> 00:36:27

And then as you go up,

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

what you need, you read

00:36:31--> 00:36:32

Let's say this. I wanna know what does

00:36:32--> 00:36:34

this word mean. All praise to Allah, the

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

Lord of the heavens and the earth. Okay.

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

That's the first level. Now I need to

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

go. What does praise me?

00:36:40--> 00:36:42

What does Allah mean? But I'm not gonna

00:36:42--> 00:36:44

go there unless I know the basics first.

00:36:44--> 00:36:46

So start with easy, and you go further,

00:36:46--> 00:36:48

and you go further. I'll take one more

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

question, and we need to call it because

00:36:49--> 00:36:51

I have so many things and so many

00:36:51--> 00:36:53

things afterward. Yes.

00:36:59--> 00:36:59

About

00:37:03--> 00:37:05

Yeah. Because I can't hear you well. If

00:37:06--> 00:37:07

anybody needs to leave, feel free.

00:37:08--> 00:37:10

I know it's getting late, but if we

00:37:10--> 00:37:11

just can leave quietly.

00:37:12--> 00:37:13

Yes. Go ahead. Okay.

00:37:15--> 00:37:17

I want to refer to what you, I

00:37:17--> 00:37:18

want you to speak about

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

the

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

personality trait that you spoke about the beginning

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

when you said.

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

Yeah. How do we reconcile

00:37:27--> 00:37:29

that with, Mandra Aminkom,

00:37:31--> 00:37:34

And also just another part is how do

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

we ensure that we are not perceiving other

00:37:37--> 00:37:39

people as or not oppressing them with our

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

thoughts,

00:37:41--> 00:37:42

when we take when we decide to take

00:37:42--> 00:37:43

a step back? Okay.

00:37:44--> 00:37:46

So it's a very complicated question. Let's let

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

me try to make it easy and answer

00:37:48--> 00:37:49

it in a short one. So

00:37:53--> 00:37:55

take pardon as your character. Right? And then

00:37:55--> 00:37:57

enjoin what is good and stay away from

00:37:57--> 00:37:59

the ignorance. And then she said, well, how

00:37:59--> 00:38:01

can I reconcile this with

00:38:02--> 00:38:04

whenever you see

00:38:04--> 00:38:05

a you see what?

00:38:06--> 00:38:08

Something is rejected. This has nothing to do

00:38:08--> 00:38:09

with this.

00:38:09--> 00:38:11

This is a complete 2 different things.

00:38:11--> 00:38:13

The verse if you read this verse of

00:38:13--> 00:38:15

Surat Al Araf, read the commentary on it's

00:38:15--> 00:38:17

a story about Sayyidina Umar. And I'm gonna

00:38:17--> 00:38:19

do it quickly so you understand the meaning.

00:38:19--> 00:38:21

So Sayid Nama was in his majlis, all

00:38:21--> 00:38:24

the major sahaba and Badri'in, everybody. And then

00:38:24--> 00:38:27

one of the companion of Sayyidina Umar, his

00:38:27--> 00:38:29

uncle came and he said, I want you

00:38:29--> 00:38:30

to get me to meet Sayyidina

00:38:31--> 00:38:34

Umar. So he entered with his uncle. His

00:38:34--> 00:38:36

uncle in front of everybody, imagine this, stood

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

and said to Sayed Na'am, you are this,

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

you are that, you are not fair. You

00:38:40--> 00:38:42

name it, he said it. And you can

00:38:42--> 00:38:44

imagine what happened to Sayyid Nama.

00:38:44--> 00:38:46

His face changed.

00:38:46--> 00:38:47

The Sahabi

00:38:47--> 00:38:48

knows the Quran

00:38:49--> 00:38:52

well and he understood his face. Looked at

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

him and says,

00:38:56--> 00:38:58

Look how he spoke to him. Allah said

00:38:59--> 00:39:00

to

00:39:01--> 00:39:02

you, he's an ignorant.

00:39:03--> 00:39:04

And they say,

00:39:05--> 00:39:06

They didn't say a word.

00:39:06--> 00:39:09

So if somebody stood up now and said

00:39:09--> 00:39:10

something really bad,

00:39:11--> 00:39:14

if I am a woman who really practice

00:39:14--> 00:39:15

this, I'm gonna say,

00:39:16--> 00:39:18

You know what? You could be right,

00:39:19--> 00:39:21

and may Allah forgive me, then I am.

00:39:21--> 00:39:23

Versus somebody come here and make a lot

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

of noises,

00:39:25--> 00:39:27

right, not about me, just interrupting.

00:39:27--> 00:39:29

My Amr ibn Ma'ruf, I have to say,

00:39:29--> 00:39:31

Jazaqqala Khair, can we talk about this later

00:39:31--> 00:39:32

on?

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

Because you're disturbing the other. Did you see

00:39:34--> 00:39:37

the difference? Amrul Maroof is a complete different.

00:39:37--> 00:39:40

And by the way, Amrul Maroof enjoying good

00:39:40--> 00:39:41

is not an individual.

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

It's usually collective. It's usually

00:39:45--> 00:39:48

the people with authority unless in your home.

00:39:48--> 00:39:50

But if you walk in the streets and

00:39:50--> 00:39:52

you see something bad, you should not go

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

and tell everybody,

00:39:53--> 00:39:54

but you have to

00:39:55--> 00:39:57

the weakest one in your but if you

00:39:57--> 00:39:58

are in Sala and somebody next to you,

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

for example, made a mistake,

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

they have to think very nicely how I'm

00:40:02--> 00:40:03

gonna tell her.

00:40:03--> 00:40:05

Like somebody happened to me yesterday.

00:40:05--> 00:40:08

Right? She actually said, salaam. She me and

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

her entered late.

00:40:09--> 00:40:11

So the imam finished, and, of course, she

00:40:11--> 00:40:13

have to stand up and continue. And she

00:40:13--> 00:40:15

said, salaam, salaam. She prayed only 1.

00:40:15--> 00:40:17

So now it's like the question. I'm gonna

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

do

00:40:18--> 00:40:20

before she take it because you already have,

00:40:20--> 00:40:22

and I want everyone to know this.

00:40:27--> 00:40:30

Let's the way you're enjoying good be in

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

a good way, and let it not be

00:40:31--> 00:40:33

in a bad way. So you really have

00:40:33--> 00:40:34

to look at her and says, you know

00:40:34--> 00:40:35

what?

00:40:36--> 00:40:38

You're like me, you know, we come late,

00:40:38--> 00:40:39

may Allah forgive us. It was this and

00:40:39--> 00:40:41

this and this. Just wanna let you know,

00:40:41--> 00:40:42

were you a traveler?

00:40:43--> 00:40:46

You have to make a conversation first. And

00:40:46--> 00:40:47

then you said, you know what? Usually, if

00:40:47--> 00:40:50

we come late and we get only 1,

00:40:50--> 00:40:52

we have to stand up. We say salah,

00:40:52--> 00:40:54

and continue. Alhamdulillah, she listened.

00:40:55--> 00:40:57

for

00:40:55--> 00:40:57

for
