inika semiology withdraw money out to become an MLA amphoe albula shell and I've seen that touchbar what do I like smack? Robin Allah is Apollo been a bad headache Anna will have been amulet on karma in occur Intel will have probably shot a soldering recently Emery watlow the Tommy Sahni of Paul calling hamdulillah Hello, Blimey Allah brought us back and we are back again to the Tuesday Hello, the famous Tuesday hallak as I always call it, like almost, I get into 20 years now I

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

think it's 18 we're getting definitely to 18 I don't recall exactly what year we started but hamdulillah blah and so it's always good to be back. It's always good to be learning and one of the things

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

I just don't know why I chose this topic but because always especially when you come out from

00:00:49--> 00:01:32

a month or one season of worship is go back to the Quran. You always go back to the Quran and always the question comes in is why and I say this to myself before anyone, is why the Quran is not changing us as an oma, as Muslims. I mean we all read the Quran and the question is why I am the same as I am. And I've read the Quran Allah knows how many times and Allah knows how many times in a month, especially when I am like let's say in High German in Amara or I'm in Ramallah so I was looking at Apollo lab right this work to me Apollo was a gifted from one of my friends and I was reading it and I was like this is a good It's a very simple practical book about not how to read the

00:01:32--> 00:01:54

Quran itself series actually was the steps for me to understand the Quran meaning not understand word to word, because what towards all all the Quran has worked toward and these books were to is how do I basically live the Quran? How do I get to the point where in my life in my daily activity, the IRS comes in?

00:01:55--> 00:02:07

The IR comes in, and this is actually is not something fictions, like fiction, this is real. I've seen people, I've seen people that in that moment, the idea from the Quran comes to them.

00:02:08--> 00:02:46

It's amazing how light Yeah, it's amazing whether it's an action they have to do. And they are hesitant, and the IR comes in and make them do it or the other way around, or what to say was the best way to do things. So basically, the concept is called a Dumbo is not FC, there's a difference. And the out of the language. tafsir is interpretation. Meaning I'm reading this and what does this mean. And then usually, when you read the books of tafsir, you cannot read, most of them depends which one you're reading. But then there is usually a hadith of roswaal De Soto syndrome, or they caught another idea from the Quran. And then the Mufasa, the the person who is doing the

00:02:46--> 00:03:15

interpretation, ad is what his knowledge took to it, that's called the double is a different story. The double is basically his reflection, is I will understand, of course, the meaning. But reality of the matter how this will change me, and how this will move me and how this will get me closer to almost pantile, for example, and I'm going to quote the easiest idea, which almost every Muslim No, which is

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

all

00:03:19--> 00:03:35

right, say Allah is what the meaning is very easy, right? You don't have a reality. Whether you're speak Arabic, or you don't speak Arabic, you do not need to open a book to draw what the meaning of say, oil, say, Allah, Allah, I had one.

00:03:36--> 00:04:36

Right? So this is tafsir. So once you said follow along, I'd say Allah is one, then then you have know the meaning of the iron. That's Tafseer, who is the deeper meaning of this? What does Allah want from me, when he revealed this, I mean, not the suburban resume not why this I was revealed. What this this I should teach me, change me, make me do or make me not to do. So that is the inner meaning of an iron a verse or an inner meaning of a sentence, if you want it in general, that will lead me to the goal of that sentence. That will take me as I deep think, deep that needs deep thinking, deep thinking deep reflection on it, it will take me to the goal to the aim. Why Allah

00:04:36--> 00:04:42

Subhana Allah revealed this. So for example, I'm going to apply kulu Allah had means one

00:04:44--> 00:04:50

call who Allah had say Allah is one means what? No means no God but Allah, right?

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

That's, I know this for a fact. And you know this for a fact. And we all know this for a fact. Are we living? Are we really rich?

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

Reflecting on this, right? And then you're going to come and ask me what does it reflect Impala had means?

00:05:07--> 00:05:49

Very simple, but it's not easily practice kulu Allah had means there's no God but Allah, meaning no one will home. But Allah or I would say, out of adaboost Allah, no one will hurt me without the permission of Allah under without the knowledge of Allah spanker no one can give me something. And reality Allah is the one, the only one who gives a law, the only one who fixes a law or minor, the only one who would hold is a law, basically the names of the law. Now this also may be we know this meaning, but now bring it to my daily life.

00:05:51--> 00:06:09

Bring it to my daily life, and how much I am really, really practicing this when I say you know what, I'm so worried I'm gonna lose my job. I'm so worried if I do. If I go part time, I'm so worried my income will be less. That tells me I'm not living on home alone.

00:06:10--> 00:06:15

That tells me I am living the job is giving me the money versus

00:06:16--> 00:06:47

Allah is going to give me the money. So if Allah subhanaw taala wants to give me the money, he will give me the money. So the Double of the Quran is actually reflecting on the meaning of the eye. That's why the double is not something you will do it quickly. You cannot reflect on the horror on an inner meaning of the inner depth meaning of the horror, and you're just reading it like we read. So that's number one. Number two, what is the goal of reading the horror?

00:06:51--> 00:07:07

Usually you have to, to get to the, to the deeper meaning of the reflection of the Quran, I need to know why I am reading the Quran saying because it's the word of Allah and I will get reward. That's only one.

00:07:08--> 00:07:16

And that's the least that's like you know, when you when you start walking, this is the first step. Most of us stop here.

00:07:17--> 00:08:01

Most of us stops here and that's why we're not changing because I said hamdulillah I read, I read I finished my Jews I finished my thesis I finished my GPA. And some people memorize the whole Quran and they don't know what they are reading but they know the words there is a reward huge, but they it will not change them. I will not I will not be what Allah wants me unless I know and this is a lost power to Allah said if you ask someone Why did Allah send the Koran to us? The answer is in the Quran. What did Allah says in the Quran? He tabula Anza nahi Laika Mubarak? Why we are dumb Babu iottie only after that kural Al Bab Allah said this is what side kita one answer now who you take a

00:08:01--> 00:08:49

book that we send it to you and you is to Roswell is Auto Center why he didn't say to read and get the reward will Baraka you know, call on Friday like you know, you read it in the in your house and then there's going to be Baraka, or I have an exam tomorrow. So I'm going to read today so Allah who make him pass the exam, no Leah de baru IRT. So they will reflect and learn deeply the meaning of the iiar Well, yet the Corolla a BB and those who knows well, those who are wise, they will learn the attacker, they will remember in reality, they will comprehend what Allah wants. So the first thing I'm going to see in front of me when I open the horn, I'm saying this to myself before anybody

00:08:49--> 00:09:11

else, when I opened the Koran, it should not be only because a lot this is the words only because it's the word of Allah and I will get reward that's taken that's given. But that's not it. That's only the first thing so number one I need and this is going to be a series any when this is just an introduction, we'll do this today.

00:09:12--> 00:09:47

The first thing is I need to change the way I look at the aura we Muslims change the way you look at the Koran, it's the word of Allah There is no doubt about that. But it's the word of Allah that was given to me to know Allah number one, number one is to know Allah. And number two is to know how to live in this life, the way the creator of this life wants me to do. And number three, no way to get closer to Allah other than his words. No way you will get to a law other than his words, and is just a beautiful

00:09:49--> 00:09:53

parable and they say a Quran is like this. See?

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

How many of you do see sailing? Or you do snorkeling? Because that's how

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

Absolutely applies to it. It's like a seesaw when you go on a beach. Remember this? The whole idea is like a be like the sea and you're standing at the beach. When you stand at the beach. What do you see? See beauty? You see beautiful. You always panela. Right? Especially if it's a beautiful day, and you see the outside the outside part of the sea, and you see the outside beauty. Talk to someone who does a snorkeling or who does diving.

00:10:29--> 00:10:51

The person who does snorkeling, he will say, Oh, you haven't seen anything? Oh, wait, wait till you come and see, right? talk to somebody who does deep diving, talking to the person who does a snorkeling because you haven't seen anything. you've only seen the superficial, come with me deeper, and see what you will see. This is the horror.

00:10:53--> 00:11:15

So the more I learn, the more I go deeper, the more I will find the beauty, enjoy the beauty, learn the beauty. So it's a law her and it is bought on searches, Enter. And then it is an insight. And this is a very beautiful quote and I'm going to translate your salad history who is

00:11:16--> 00:12:13

a very pious man, he says, if the human being was given 1000s meaning of one ayah in the Quran, he will not have know the the depth, he would not reach the depth of this if even if he was given 1000 and he said because this is what it when it comes to beautiful cars he says this is the words of Allah and we have always remind ourselves the Quran is the words of Allah because this comes up we all remember this, this is not human being wrote it this is the words of Allah and he says Allah subhanaw taala because this is his words and his words his his characters and as a law now this is as a law is endless. Allah is infinite. We all know this apana as a lot is infinite his words are

00:12:14--> 00:12:24

infinite his words are not created How can a created thing understand fully something that is not created

00:12:26--> 00:12:32

so what when you look at the Quran you really gonna tell yourself Don't say all I understood oh yeah i know i know.

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

Right when you come to somebody if you if you if you

00:12:37--> 00:12:48

get an email or a text or get an announcement about a HELOC about sort of Samad which is Paulo Allah Allah has a chapter of Paulo Allah has a lot of people says, Okay, I know it.

00:12:49--> 00:12:49

I know.

00:12:50--> 00:13:34

This is one of the main thing is like, every area in the Quran has layers. And one of the ways I I look at the Quran is like you're walking into a corridor, like remember these old homes or old castles corridor has high ceiling, and you're walking, there's a lot of doors, and every time you open a door, there's another door in front of you. But between these two, there is a lot of Beauty Inside of last panel, this is beautiful, then you go inside to the other door and you open it and there's even more beauty and more beauty and more beauty. And the best way to get to this before I go to any of the details is actually ask a loss on Todd to show you the beauty of his book.

00:13:36--> 00:14:15

And if you look at it, you're going to look at it in in this way. There's a Koran and there is the human being. And there is the message of lost power. Tyler said the Quran is never changed, right? squat is the same. How many years 1000s here's why. This question has to come to everybody why it's the same idea. Same idea, any iron the Koran, and remember this when you're praying anywhere, let alone in Ramadan in tarawih. Same idea, the Imam is reciting. One person is sobbing.

00:14:16--> 00:14:27

And you have seen some people when they really feel the eye. The person next to him it's the same idea. It's the same reciter and the person next to them is probably

00:14:29--> 00:14:53

working hard struggling to focus. The person on the left is actually probably working with a job or or working with a soul and this could be somebody else's probably their brain is their thoughts is way far away. isn't the same source. Is it the same is the same reciter where is the problem and the receiver

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

so there is a receiver the Quran when you read there's like a triangle the Quran

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

itself is never changed, it's the same, there is the receiver. And there is the main means to receive it. The receiver is me in which part of me

00:15:10--> 00:15:11

is my heart

00:15:12--> 00:15:44

is like you see yourself when you are, did a lot of good deeds, and then you come to pray, or you are fasting and then just break your fast or you're still fasting or you were an Amara, or you did something good. And then you come and you pray, your heart is clear, clearer. Then when you read, you feel it. versus if you were so busy, imagine this, you know, like you were cooking or you were with the kids, and your chances are, there's only 10 minutes left for salah and you're on to pray, don't even remember what you said,

00:15:45--> 00:16:01

because of the receiver. So the the main thing into the book in the reflection of the Quran is I need to look at the receiver I'm going to talk a lot about it later on. But my heart, if I don't feel it, it is not because

00:16:02--> 00:16:11

it is too hard. I'm gonna come to this in a second. It's not because it's too hard. It's because it is my heart is stained.

00:16:12--> 00:16:22

The mean not to clean the heart but the mean to come from the Quran to my heart is the reflection is the means I used to make me learn the Quran better.

00:16:23--> 00:16:32

One principle you always have to say two principles actually, even before you open the Koran, who is my enemy? And who is your enemy?

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

Who is my enemy and your enemy.

00:16:36--> 00:16:47

Before that, a shavon What did Allah says in the shaitaan and Akuma du? bois Du Bois? shavon? Is your enemy it's clear if

00:16:49--> 00:17:00

Allah said this is what father Nehemiah is the Holy Roman as Hobbes say he calls his his party his friends his people to be of the people of the Hellfire

00:17:01--> 00:17:01

right

00:17:02--> 00:17:08

yeah and Allah says all sorts of other more now your agenda comes

00:17:09--> 00:17:13

in who I do like my flights agenda comma inertia in Baja.

00:17:15--> 00:17:32

In in the hula kumawu Let's gonna come in call her also says Allah shaitan is the annum so I need to know there's enemy standing there. Imagine this when you are opening a door and you know there's somebody behind the door. Right? What are you gonna do?

00:17:34--> 00:18:17

You're opening the door, and there is somebody behind the door you're gonna, you're gonna get ready, how you got it? Let's assume with a child. So don't get scared. It's a child, and you don't want to hurt the child. What are you going to do? You're going to take precautions. So when you open the door, don't hurt the child. Say upon the moment, I'm going to pick up the Quran, right my enemy and he is not going to like it when I am reading the Quran. So when I opened the Koran I have to be careful how I am going to open the Quran with pushing the shavon away. So I need to remember shaitan is there and what is the easiest way to push up on away and Allah also said it in the Quran.

00:18:18--> 00:18:36

The Quran Khurana stars Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. And Allah clearly see this is very clear. When you read the Quran, seek refuge from Allah. Seek refuge seek Allah refuge from Shayla

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

manifesta is blameless cytologic in the holiest also upon alginates alone, he does not have he does not have any control over those who does not want to be part of so that's number one I opened the Koran I need to remember the shaitaan is going to come now you remember something and reality the usual things when you read the Quran, how much you can focus

00:19:03--> 00:19:22

1015 minutes and then you are looking where is my phone, what's happening let me go and do this and come back in this. So let's head on is right here. So remember all this every time you want to move, you want to do something and you're in the Quran, remember all the language on rajee second thing where my next is going to come is you're going to say this, it's too hard.

00:19:24--> 00:19:34

The language especially for the non Arab and even for the our, for the Arabs, it's too hard. I don't know what a loss seeing the words is too hard. It's too complicated. I cannot understand this,

00:19:36--> 00:19:57

too, especially for everybody. Because that's one of the means shaitan will use against me and you How do I respond to this also from the origin. So always remember this very simple idea to remember this you may have to write it down, put it next to the or you open the Quran. Allah said this is what will occur the sermon or analytic time in which

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

we have made

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

The Quran easy, easy to remember to be a form of remember as actual the final member Dekker anybody remember this and a lot repeated this I repeatedly like when you read the rough man how many times I lost this would be a euro become Africa Dima, this is what the comment is this way well

00:20:22--> 00:20:32

we made the Quran easy. And even scholars will teach you that out of the etiquette and politeness will must count ally should never say Quran is odd.

00:20:34--> 00:20:54

Because Allah said it is easy. So number two, so all these principles before I even opened the Quran, but I will say there's someone sitting right there standing against me, the moment I want to open the surah number two, Allah, Allah said it is easy that means it is easy. And then we it I will say Allah make it easy.

00:20:55--> 00:20:58

Remember this, so here you are.

00:21:01--> 00:21:04

Now, this is also very interesting

00:21:05--> 00:21:31

point, the Quran the interpretation of the Quran, this is scholars will tell you is actually the Quran is four parts, in the meanings, meaning there is part of the Quran, which is very easy to understand, very easy to understand, and we just shipped called hula, hula, there is part of the Quran, that almost everybody can learn.

00:21:32--> 00:21:34

And almost everyone can learn.

00:21:36--> 00:21:43

And there is parts of the Quran that the scholars will know. And that is part of the Quran, only Allah knows.

00:21:44--> 00:22:16

This go back again. So the Quran will be for is not the Quran is actually divided into four parts, meaning four parts regard related to the meaning of the Quran, there is sport which everyone can understand, and I just shared with you, hello Allah Allah had, everyone knows the meaning. And there is part of the Quran that everyone can learn the meaning there is part of the Quran that only scholars and there is part of the Quran, only Allah knows the meaning of it. Only Allah knows the meaning of it.

00:22:17--> 00:22:33

Then you come and say, What do you think the percentage of this part versus versus this part? Meaning, what do you think the percentage of the easy part of the origin and the part that everyone can learn? versus the part that is only scholars and only a last part on?

00:22:35--> 00:22:36

What do you think the percentage

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

so

00:22:41--> 00:22:48

the biggest percentage, most more than 80% of the Quran, falls in this category.

00:22:50--> 00:23:23

The category of everyone can understand or everyone can learn the meaning of and I will tell you some examples that you can even go and try to do, right? For example, Alhamdulillah Allah the answer Allah Abdul Allah, Allahu La Jolla. You know Arabi what, Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Angela, Angela. I'll translate but for the anybody who's Arabi Angela, this is what we use it daily. Allah Abdi keytab. Welcome. Yeah.

00:23:24--> 00:23:49

Anyone who knows, basic simple Auto V language will know this. let's translate English. Alhamdulillah Praise to Allah. I'm not I'm not doing interpretation. I'm just translating hamdulillah Praise to Allah. Angela, Sangha, Allah Abdi to his servant, Al Kitab. The book? Well, I'm your Jaga. And he did want to make false and that book is that easy. that follows you.

00:23:51--> 00:23:57

Right? If I want to go to the next one, I want to understand it a little bit deeper. What does this mean?

00:23:58--> 00:24:10

The Quran isn't yet met because a lot of the hamdulillah that means it's in him it's a grace, right? And that means the Quran has no faults because Allah said So does that mean I need to go to college to understand that.

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

So 80% of the Quran falls in this category.

00:24:18--> 00:24:42

80% For example, I was just just listening as far as I was driving and to the story of Satan or Moosa in the Quran, it's so clear, so clear, but if you ask anyone who knows a little bit about the horses, oh, there's a magician's and then say No, sir. And then there was a stick and there was snakes, and then they suddenly believed, and then Iran got very upset, right?

00:24:44--> 00:24:58

This is about three pages of what I just shared with you. So I need to go back to the Quran. I say there's 80% meaning and I'm not trying to scare anyone I need to scare myself number that means 80% of it. I'm going to be in front of Allah.

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

And he gonna tell me why didn't you note?

00:25:04--> 00:25:28

Why didn't you note? The language is very easy or very easy to be learned. He's not going to ask me about the the ones that scholars are let alone the one he Subhana only knows. So I need to bring this back to me. And I would should not say Oh, it's too hard to learn. It's too hard. I'm not saying memorize. I'm saying to learn. So that's number one.

00:25:30--> 00:25:38

When I reflect on the Quran, when I reflect on the Quran, I the the goal I will end up with the following

00:25:39--> 00:25:41

what is the main goal of the hora?

00:25:42--> 00:25:46

If someone asked you what is the main goal of the Quran? What are you going to ask for?

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

guidance?

00:25:52--> 00:26:03

Exactly. The Quran came in to teach me who's Allah. So the my goal is after I read the Quran, so let's put it this way. Let's talk simple today.

00:26:05--> 00:26:19

It's unacceptable I should tell myself it's unacceptable, quote unquote shameful that after I read the whole Quran, it took me a month it took me three days it took me six months. And I still don't know a lot well.

00:26:20--> 00:26:22

Because what is stockade

00:26:23--> 00:27:09

to hate is that you know, Allah is the only God knowing this reading versus knowing. So when I keep be reading and reading Mahatma summer work, you will love Mahatma summer or we did not create the heavens and the earth. We've not created the heaven and the earth, on one part put us in one part and put us The more I read about Allah Subhana Allah if I just read moved from knowing the meaning to the second that are you going to not talking to him meaning Allah is the only God as follow Allah. So that's number one. Number two, if I know Allah is only one as I more and more and more I read the Quran and more and more I found out that is all I need to do everything for last part on

00:27:09--> 00:27:12

this is our main problem in this life

00:27:13--> 00:27:51

will love the Allahu if we learn, we are lucky just all to do things only for Allah. And I said only no other reason neither to even my parents, if I am good to my parents because that's pleases Allah. Not because they are my parents, or because they are nice, or they took care of me when I'm young. Only for Allah, I do it only for everything. When I am nice to my husband only for Allah I take care of my children only for a while I am studying for Allah, I'm good in my work for Allah. To me, this is the recipe of happiness in this life because you will not be disappointed

00:27:53--> 00:28:12

and you have going to be sad and you are not going to be expecting anyone caught on one of the goals. As I read it. It's gonna teach me who's a law and it's gonna make me gradually do things only for Allah. The more I know Allah The more I submit to Him the more I love him

00:28:14--> 00:28:19

is that what happens when I say Korea verbenas when I come to the last sort of

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

what I just said handle a knife and attachment

00:28:25--> 00:28:48

so I need to remind myself It happens it will happen Be it Neela because he sent it for this reason. Now there is keys to understand the horror. And I'm going to give you the headlines today and then as we go We'll go the first key to understand the cloud What do you think this was very interesting when I was reading this book it's actually loving the Quran

00:28:50--> 00:28:53

love the relationship of love

00:28:54--> 00:28:57

which we don't have this like what do you love in life?

00:28:58--> 00:29:02

If I ask you here What do you gonna answer? What do you love?

00:29:03--> 00:29:04

God tell me why children

00:29:05--> 00:29:14

Absolutely. Let's Let's ask the young lady who doesn't have children yet? Doesn't have children yet inshallah we'll give her so what do you love now getting my love My husband because you just got married

00:29:16--> 00:29:20

or parents right? Right. What about what about you sir?

00:29:23--> 00:29:58

Usually young generation will be material. Right? I love my phone. I love my room. I love my bed. There's nothing common this why I need to gradually and as this famous line that I was taught long time ago is fake it till you make it. Fake it till I love the Quran number one is to key to understand, it's the relationship of love. And I always bring this example when woman cook in cook. When she cooks because she has to feed her children. Versus she cooked because she loved to cook. What is the result?

00:30:00--> 00:30:51

Huge difference, even if it's the same recipe, right? Absolutely anything you do with law, anything you do with law, the result is different. Because you love it, you put your emotions you put as we say you put your heart in it. So I number one to the keys and I'm just gonna again give you the keys. Number one is I need to start knowing that they're my relationship with the Quran way more than it's the words of Allah and I'm going to get the reward. It is a relationship of long it's amazing. We do have a love relationship with other than human beings right? I love my bed. I love my phone. I love my jewelry. Woohoo, right? I love my I don't know what else we love.

00:30:52--> 00:31:09

material. I'm not talking about human right so the concept of loving non human is not unheard of. Or it's not something not we don't know what it means. It's actually our day life. I love my car. I love my garden. Right I love my dog.

00:31:12--> 00:31:16

If I can do this, so why I don't do this with the words of Allah

00:31:17--> 00:31:42

have given even one of the dreiser Allah make me love your words have read me but are on make me love it. That's number one. Number two, why I am reading every time. Every time when you're reading the horn, even if it's a half a page, two lines, remember what is to know a lot Well, now I'm going to do all my actions to Allah only then I am going to be loving a lot and I'm going to overthink this

00:31:43--> 00:32:02

and to give you even more, any more systematic. Number one I read to learn. I need I am learning I am reading to learn right for example Give me something Quran taught you not your mother. Not life not experience.

00:32:03--> 00:32:05

Quran taught you something What does the order untouched?

00:32:07--> 00:32:09

Allah because that was the

00:32:10--> 00:32:14

main theme for this is not convention. Okay, but the Quran

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

the Quran taught you Yes, I'm talking about the Quran itself. Something you read in the Quran. And you said I learned it.

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

Si Si Si Si Si look at you

00:32:30--> 00:32:36

crowdrise you know, once we meet once general all the time

00:32:39--> 00:32:54

Okay, beautiful. So Quran taught me that something called Jannah paradise, and the Quran taught me the beauty of it and made me longing for it. So I am so number one I am reading the Quran to learn

00:32:56--> 00:33:13

if I did not read the Quran I didn't know there is hellfire. Yeah, if I take it simple don't go too deep. It's very simple in the beginning remember we are still on the shore we didn't even go snorkeling yet we're still on the shore. So I read the Quran I learned that is prophets

00:33:14--> 00:33:32

I read the Quran there is I learned there is other people lived before us I learned the Quran and I know there's something called water and there's something called see there's Earth and there's mountains Don't you see this star stars So number one is to learn number two

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

is to act by what we

00:33:37--> 00:33:55

sow so I learned so the moment I learned something, I put it to practice you put the worker you put it the last one but take something simple that you learn from the Quran and then you start practicing right for example, honey,

00:33:56--> 00:34:03

right honey simple we all love honey. Why? Most people will answer this why we love honey.

00:34:05--> 00:34:27

Exactly everybody will answer this because it's mentioned in the Quran. And it is she fought and it is at Madison a cure everybody knows this. I'm giving you very simple things as we go shall Allah who shows even deeper, but so I learned I put it to practice then the question comes in Do you use honey

00:34:28--> 00:34:35

daily? Because Allah said so then yes, you you put the knowledge to practice

00:34:36--> 00:34:43

house and even like you know when when something anybody comes says Oh, no, honey is harmful. I was like, I'm sorry.

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

No, don't even talk about it. He shifa only does a Lawson category clear, clear word she fought que he in it. cure to people. Clear word. So number one I learned number two

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

I

00:35:01--> 00:35:07

practice number three which is very nice. I read the Quran to talk to Allah

00:35:09--> 00:35:48

to have this personal dialogue with Allah think of this now these days we lost these remember the days when we used to have used to have mail remember I mean now these days I'm sure very very soon there will be no mail box anymore right in the homes but remember I can then your mother is in India and Pakistan your mother your your sister is wherever like and you're waiting for that for that for that letter and then the letter comes in and you open the letter and then you keep reading and keep reading you keep reading you read it but you still keep reading these days there's no letter these days is what is messages and it's never been raised. There's messages were stays there in the phone

00:35:49--> 00:35:54

and I keep reading and reading Why? Because you will love not what they are saying.

00:35:56--> 00:35:59

Could it be but mainly because you will love the person who send it

00:36:01--> 00:36:15

true or false was like oh this is from my best friend I haven't seen her for years. I mean think of the people you love my goal reading the Quran should be monada to Allah I'm reading his words that he sent it to me

00:36:17--> 00:36:20

and it's put on a personal level monada is like the

00:36:21--> 00:36:29

private personal talk with Allah would love so that's number three number four is to for the reward.

00:36:30--> 00:36:43

I want to say what do you read the Quran because I want to the reward should not be number one it's always there 104 is and number five why duty the Quran which this is underused

00:36:45--> 00:36:51

as an as a form of cure medicine or is itself Shiva

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

Shiva so I need to put this in front of me you know what I'm saying? We are we are living in a day and time where

00:37:01--> 00:37:41

I need to know why I'm doing this it has to be very clear and I have to schedule everything and I have to plan everything this is how we are living these days right we all have lists will do where to from this time to this time do the same thing for the Quran so Allah subhanaw taala remove this layer and take into the deeper one and you start reading it because you you want to know more and because you're enjoying it like when you're diving and people says done it time is like no no Let me see one more that's what I want as I when I am having the corner I don't want to stop reading somehow like something in this morning brought to my heart Yanni I was thinking so you know smile

00:37:41--> 00:38:29

and you all know this when he read the whole Quran in one Luca This is a very famous well known it's he was seen in Idris made the whole night. The whole Quran in one little car in one the only time they saw him doing prostration is so Judah Tito when the ayat comes in that we are any as a Sunnah that we will go for prostration that tells you and I think of this when I when I reflect on this. This is among all the Allah Han who is enjoying reading, enjoying reading and compare you and me when we are in Korea and the Amanda took two pages and is going to the third half If not, almost everybody is like when is it going to say Allahu Akbar.

00:38:31--> 00:38:43

So mana Dracula, so the reason when I put in my, again, when I opened before I even write that down, I'm reading it number one to one turn about everything, actually one of the things are on teaches you

00:38:44--> 00:39:01

is yourself, me. Because if you expose yourself and you bring yourself to the orange, especially when it comes to the idea of characters, the idea of beaming dealings with each other, or the act of giving and then you bring yourself and say is this is me.

00:39:02--> 00:39:32

Is this is me, especially for less praising that character. Is this me? So he teaches me about the law teaches me about this dunya teaching me about the hereafter. And teaching me about you me really teaches you about the other people. Other people meaning I am learning I'm reading to read to know what's my friend look like or the other know about me. Number two is to practice everything you learn. Like for example, one of you told me the last I read that comes to your mind.

00:39:33--> 00:39:35

Whether today yesterday last week,

00:39:36--> 00:39:42

something you read, and it's sticking stayed in your mind and give me the meaning doesn't have to give me the

00:39:44--> 00:39:48

Okay, it fabula t Soc. No Alamo when I have

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

it if I will let your SOC push away harm with the best way. Look at how Allah said this in the fabula at SMC

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

To push the harm in the best way you can.

00:40:05--> 00:40:29

Meaning someone is harming me, already harmed me. Let's assume someone harmed you. And what is the usual way of harming us? We woman backpacking, somebody talked about you or somebody then action in your heart. The Quran tells me EDI fabula t here sn o sia push this home or responded to this harm, not with retaliation

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

in the best way you can.

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

And this depends who you are, who you and I are.

00:40:37--> 00:41:03

I mean, normally in the Quran will say push it in the same way. Right? Allah said it was out will say yeah, I didn't say yeah, Temecula and another part of the horses, the the reward, the reward, or the punishment of a harm is the same way. But the the order came to the soiree sort of push home in the best way. So when someone say something not good about you,

00:41:04--> 00:41:05

how do I respond?

00:41:07--> 00:41:42

If I learned this, I learned, I'm going to practice it. Maybe in the beginning, I'm not there yet. In the beginning, I'm just going to struggle not to say a word. Let's assume it was horrible. And I'm going to say, you know what, I'm just going to control my funk. I'm not going to answer an answer means not only talking message, email, whatever. And then as I go more and more, I'm going to learn to nothing stays in my heart. As I go more and more and more and then as I read more and more, and learn more and more and more, I am going to even do more.

00:41:43--> 00:41:59

So in Quran I am reading it to learn I am not reading it only because it's the word of Allah learn. Practice Give me another idea because that's what's gonna make you think of any other eye. You read mean in English

00:42:01--> 00:42:03

law I know some law because laughing

00:42:05--> 00:42:22

isn't enough for his servant. And the answer should be balaiah McAfee Yes. Oh my lord you're enough more than enough and Allah saying this sort Zuma law saying this in a question for at least a log will be capping isn't a lot enough for you.

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

We all know the I think most of you know the meaning if not maybe exactly the word. Then I learned this then I should say yes. Allah has enough for me. Meaning enough I'm almost in a lucky that to me. Enough. Absolutely.

00:42:39--> 00:43:20

And then ammo than ammo comes in when I say Elisa la Hobi caffeinate. I am not worried about my future. I am not worried about my system because a la Cathy. Allah will take care of me. Now comes your taco, here comes a taco Did you get the point. So you read number one, and you read the ayah and keep repeating the eye and we're going to come to this a short while later on? Is that one of the keys for you keep repeating the eye. That's why you hear these stories about the Sahaba the righteous people stays repeating the eye and again and again. Why? Because the ayat starts hitting you and hitting you and hitting you. Listen lobby Kevin update, and then you're going to start

00:43:20--> 00:43:24

remembering things came in your life. And you did not practice this a lot because

00:43:25--> 00:44:08

you did not really practice our lives enough for me. And then Allah will show you know maybe sometimes you did as you repeat. So learn, practice, I read the Quran to learn to practice for the reward and for the private in special moments between me and Allah subhanho wa Taala and the last thing is for the Cure, rarely we use it for cure. Rarely we use Quran for cure Unfortunately, we don't we use it we did it for the dead, but we don't read it for the for the living people, which is amazing. I mean everybody read it for the dead Alhamdulillah but for the living and it is cute.

00:44:09--> 00:44:17

So to summarize this before the motto is, love the Quran. Remember the goals of the Quran.

00:44:18--> 00:44:22

The best way to to learn

00:44:23--> 00:44:31

deeper meaning is to read and you have memorized it. So for example, you you memorize which everybody I'm sure Kalia you have caffeine,

00:44:32--> 00:44:59

right? Although I read a lot and you want to understand the meaning and you are not reading the Quran out of memory. Because sometimes especially when you stops in it, it's going to make you focus on the eye itself. The best way to understand the Quran number one is to read it in the night, in the night sauna in the nicer weather you read if you're not the half of reading it

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

Even if it's a page

00:45:02--> 00:45:14

and keep repeating this in a whole week repeated again so now you've learned that it's a law we can navigate You should go home today and start reading Elisa law because not that the whole week

00:45:15--> 00:45:32

and think of an Alex pantalla Of course will test you and me He made you say this because there's going to be a test very soon and most of us the test comes and goes and we don't even know there was a test the luck with test will test me and your legs a lot of the caffeine after that was enough for you

00:45:33--> 00:46:21

so keep repeating it keep repeating it keep repeating it till you will get to the meaning of it. So the double the reflection the meaning of the Quran is this is what I'm going to say again and again is it's not impossible. It is something possible it is something doable I need to remove the first obstacle that says the Koran is hard because what do you tell your child when he says math is very difficult right What do you say to them you all What do you tell hmm right said practice other people can do with the new can do it right your wall say this panela everybody say this right? You don't like it you don't have to like everything you do.

00:46:22--> 00:46:23

Right?

00:46:24--> 00:46:38

Now when it comes to the horse, that obstacle is right there and i say i can't i can't i don't know what i am reading. I don't put the effort if I ask every one of us myself included how much effort I and you put to learn things about dunya

00:46:39--> 00:46:56

about life driving that I was born learning how to drive then you go to school or you had someone to teach you right and it was difficult in the beginning so scared to go into that highway remember I still remember the first time I had to go through the exit I was like yo la make it easy. Right? Now it's a piece of cake.

00:46:58--> 00:47:10

Same thing. Everything in the beginning is difficult but then it will get easier in take home today message is number one learn the concept of loving the Quran. Love it

00:47:11--> 00:47:20

the relationship should change from just it's the word of Allah and I'm going to get the reward to a relationship of love. And how do you love someone

00:47:21--> 00:47:23

knowing by knowing it

00:47:27--> 00:47:41

how do you love someone you don't know anybody? I'm not talking about deep deep love and just get to know that someone right? If you know that that's something or that person is good for you. Or did something good for you? I'm sorry.

00:47:44--> 00:48:24

So the love relationship is something does good to me. I know for a fact that I just shared it with you and you all agree I know for a fact the Quran is good for me right? I don't I doubt anyone dispute this fact that the Quran is good for me. I just need to say it's good for me and move my relationship even ask our last partner your law make me love your words. Make me love your words make me have a daily relationship with my words I say this to myself before anyone if every Muslim look at the phone May Allah forgive me for this but just to make it look at the Quran the same amount of time he looks or she looks at the phone

00:48:26--> 00:48:28

how often will read the Quran? Are they

00:48:31--> 00:48:34

the average person look at their phones in a day. How many times

00:48:36--> 00:48:43

under them 50 times 150 times No. Yeah, it was a study about that 150 times

00:48:44--> 00:48:51

every time you know everybody has like obsession there's no message because your phone is now on vibration. Your phone is on the ring.

00:48:53--> 00:49:40

And then you keep checking whether there's nothing that you keep checking is power. So so moving on to our relationship off of love. Number one, number two is I'm reading it to learn and number three, I am learning I am reading it to practice I'm reading it to others relationship personal with a loss Potala and I am doing it also for a cure. Remember that our shippon is going to be standing there preventing you and always out of love Shakeology, especially when you get distracted. When reading the Quran, get distracted, always go back and say oh Blimey Shakeology. It's extremely helpful. I know how doable this in here is to have a group and this to you and one person. Yeah, there's a lot

00:49:40--> 00:49:59

of groups these days. I wouldn't doubt if anybody doesn't have at least two or three groups on WhatsApp. But there was a group two or three people not to be to be two or three people. And then you say you know every day, I'm going to read an IUD and i and i read and I have like three people and I'm going to share the meaning you should have the meaning you should have the meaning and you consistent gives

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

Just keep doing this in a year, how much you have learned.

00:50:04--> 00:50:11

Because one day you will put the other day that she posted out there she puts. So that's how they do that and

00:50:13--> 00:50:55

meaning have like a group group get together for something here that I want to read it for you. Oh, yeah, exactly. It's two things I want him to make me remember this is saboten banani. Also, like a saint or a very righteous people. He said, I struggled with the Quran. He knows Adobe. And he's a very righteous person. And he said I struggled with the Quran capital Khurana Srinivasan 20 years, I struggled with the Quran, I wrestled actually, you want to use even better. I wrestled with the Quran for 20 years, meaning my time I went on time, the Quran would meaning me meaning my neffs or also the Quran for 20 years, then

00:50:57--> 00:51:01

then I'm to be here she is. And then I enjoyed it for 20 years.

00:51:02--> 00:51:11

So I struggled for 20 years. And I wrestled with the Quran between minus and the Quran for 20 years. And then I

00:51:13--> 00:51:32

started to enjoy it. There's a need for Swati salatu salam, probably this is the first time I read this hadith. And he says, are sorry Sato. Sam said he asked his Sahaba don't you witness? Don't you bear witness that Allah is the only God and they said yes. And he said, don't you bear witness one of us will.

00:53:47--> 00:53:49

So I saw I saw two of them said the following.

00:53:51--> 00:54:16

He said, don't you bear witness, but I don't you bear with us a law? Is the garden. No God, other than Him? They said yes. And he said, don't you bear witness that I am also law? And he thought was done. They said Yes, we do. And he says, to want to be a witness that this Quran came from Allah. He said, Yes, we do. And he this is what he said, Paul, perhaps you have glad tidings, good news. Be happy. This Quran

00:54:17--> 00:54:18

has two ends.

00:54:19--> 00:54:46

One end is in the hand of Allah and the other end is in your hands. So how long this Quran has two ends, one end Baraka Javier de la one and is in law's hand and the other one will not offer will be at the other end is in your hand for termasuk will be Hold tight to it. And once you do that, you will never perish and you will never be losers and you will never lose

00:54:47--> 00:54:59

holds to it. holster stood in holding to it is number one is is to know what is there. Number two is to read it. Number three is to know what I am reading and book

00:55:00--> 00:55:36

For is to practice it. And all this comes in by knowing is the words of Allah, I need to love it and as we go inshallah, in this series we're going to know what is the key is how do I get to all this and then inshallah Allah wills will start going through the sutras just the main meaning of the sutras as we did 1012 years ago bringing this back again to us because this is something we always have to learn again and again just like him a lot of traders panic a lot more behind the shadow and stuff to me. So let's say them hammered what was hard to distinguish any questions

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

let's go for Sullivan.
