I mean, so we're going to continue with you remember what we said two weeks ago? Do anything What did we say about the Quran two weeks ago?
Whatever the case was like, exactly. So the first key Actually, these are keys so the first key was to love the Quran How do I love the Quran if just to bring us back to what we talked about? How do I love the Quran? When you understand so when I understand it, huh? I said the words of
when I miss it signs I love it is when I miss miss reading the Quran or miss hearing, or listening to the Quran? What's the other key? How do I love the Quran?
Give it its time. The most important one that we went on and on when we said that you are
to make a dua you make a supplication Allah Mashallah
Allah make the Quran the spring of my heart so this is one of the main things that you ask a lot to make your love the color not something we are having a natural it's not like a food I like food I like is really something natural I guess that was the I love it and then I started missing it. The Quran should be this way but it's reality is not asleep we have so many other things that we are distracted because of so I need to ask Allah Subhana Allah to give me this and to make me this so the first thing is i is the love of the Quran. second key which we're going to this second key has many, many sub titles we're going to cover one of them his question is when you pick up the Quran
the question you're gonna ask yourself why I am reading
Why do you Why do we read the Quran?
I'm sorry So okay, so I want to be guided Okay, guided or to follow okay
so it is an intimate conversation Allah subhanaw taala
yeah that's part of the guiding the guidance okay
to get to know okay so okay get to know Allah I will put it through because to learn we're gonna say to learn this is these are all general they will kind of come to one by one so I read the Quran number one is because I want to be rewarded because it's an act of worship right? Why do you read the one you don't understand? at all You don't understand a word from what you are reading but you still read it and you're very happy. Why? Because Allah will reward you Why so number one is because of a reward number two because it is
it's a private conversation monada it's an intimate talking to Allah pantalla I mean this is there's no better way and I always remind myself before anyone else is when someone send you an email or a text a letter a new form of communication, and they use your words
how is going to make you feel you smile right away right so for example you always greet someone like you say it's an American version of libre and you're always Hello How are you? You always felt you always do this and somebody when they are talking to you they say exactly what you are saying how you're gonna feel
special very happy I was like wow, she knows she remembers so Allah subhanaw taala when you do when you're reading the Quran your use you're talking to him in his words using his word is not like it i RBI lovely lobbies may have mercy on me that's all beautiful but when I'm reading the Quran is the intimate talk personally and it's only you and me, me and him Subhanallah because it's I am reading the Quran alone I'm paying the book so I am having this intimate private conversation with Allah number two I'm looking for the rewards. So number three, I want to learn number four, I want to practice exactly practice and which can be any This is nothing to sequence and it is basically as a
cure which a lot of us don't use this it's a cure Quran is a cure is a medicine is a medicine and this is one of the things we need to learn so this is most of the common reasons why we read the Quran. Most of us read the Quran number one because I want to be rewarded. It is it's an act of worship. That's why again you teach your child and your child age is what 453 and why do you start getting them the product they don't they are clueless they don't know what are they reading later on? Some of us don't know what we are reading but still we do it So number one is the reward. So what I want to share before we go into this is look at the Quran I loved when I was preparing and I
came to this how do I
glorify the Quran in the scholar was saying it of course in the attributes beautifully, but I'm gonna do my best to translate. He said one of the
ways that I will start to understand the Quran before even I am reading is glorify the Quran itself. Look at the book and look at your if you have any three four books in your home, what do you have a huge library, the Quran, I have to look at it different than I'm looking at this book. So number one is on I have to bring in my heart, the glory of the hora meaning, the glory of the words.
I the glory and and glorify the fact I'm looking looking at the words of a las pantile I'm looking at this are you going to tell me I know this I know is a store is something that when I think of it, and I bring it, it's something else. It's just like when I say I know how to do this. But then when I say when I come to do with I was like, let me bring the catalog. And let's read to make it better. So let's look at it this way I need when I open the aura, I want to to glorify that book specifically when I am looking at it. And then I am going to glorify the fact I am reading and I am going to try my best to understand and spend time in looking at it. And reflection. This is actually
one of the main things we we are missing in general. We do not spend time in the eye itself in the verse itself and I'm going to come to this in the verse itself. I don't spend time
we don't all of us young and old know our we don't know how to be you know, Hatfield Yamanote by heart or do you basically start the only time I read it slowly is one.
When I don't know it, when I don't know. It's like, what is this word? Let me look at it. But if I am reading 100 litre of blood, I mean, I'm gonna read that Fatiha in two seconds, or maybe maximum and it's so terrible the reflection is give yourself time. The last two is actually made me stop. And actually the scholar I was listening to this he was crying when he said this is do you feel happy? You have the Quran?
And Allah Subhan Allah. He said, Do you feel happy? And Farahi? Do you look at it as what a blessing that the creator of this whole universe chose you and me to give us his words. Look at all look at this. So here you are at home, right? Let's say you're downsizing, let's say let's say you're moving, right? Think of this, when we move, what do we do, we go through what we have, right? And then you normally divide them into categories. I don't need this. This is junk. This is a this is very special. And very dear to me, a very special gift to me, I'm going to say, Okay, I'm going to take it with me number one, and number two, I'm going to give it I'm going to write down as if I die
if forever. I'm going to give it to only special people, right? Look at your jewelry, think of your jewelry, right? Who do you normally say I'm going to give my jewelry
usually, and which children
usually start with a daughter. And even if you have three or four daughters, you're going to think of this daughter, maybe she's not a jewelry kind. So I'm not going to give her the jewelry. She's not going to go the value of it. But I'm going to give her for example, whatever something else I know she knows Did you get what I'm trying to get? Basically the fact that last final time, the glorifying Allah, the creator of everything, his words, he chose it, to give it to you and me, I need to be very happy.
I need to be at home Allah forgiven, as happy as I am getting something I want let alone way more happier that he is apana chose you and me to give me with no effort. Nothing. Give me this book. And now these days even easier because it is translated in every language. So I'll farabi them the major, the best, the highest, the most wanted and we should be happy with me and my blessing of Allah. The fact he gave us his book that we need to bring it back to our hearts because we don't have it. We take it for granted. The Quran is there you know when do I read the Quran, okay, either a Shabbat everyday, or or someone is sick, or someone passed away. But I don't look at as this is
something precious, and I am so happy Allah Subhana Allah gave to me and I need to look at the Quran again. I didn't open it yet. I believe in everything in it. Even if I don't understand it. This is something again, I have to bring it to my heart. Even if I if I'm not convinced, let's put it this way. Let's be very frank. I'm not convinced. Why I need to start with I'm not convinced with the fact I believe in it. But I just I need to work harder on myself to see what it is. For example, somebody
Physician you come to me or you go to any physician and you're sick and they tell you not to use injection
right? What is my immediate response myself included? I don't like it. I don't want it. Do I have to? Why is there any other option? At the end when someone looks at you says you need the injection what do you do?
You take it and you start convincing yourself. Now of course Quran is not the injection well injection in a way, it's a cure. Right? But it's not painful, like an injection. But my point is I need to look at it that I believe in everything in it. This is very important and this needs to be taught to our children when they are this age, especially this day and age.
You need to do like we grew up when it was
we did not have any doubt even if we didn't understand even if we did not read the data we didn't have a doubt about it was unheard of. I need to bring this back to my children and not when they are teenagers. It's too late when they are two or three and this is we're going to come to one of the ways you do so the first thing I have not yet did anything and then remember the iOS pantalla gave to us what is autism at the end of salted hedgerow and they said there is a Lhasa terrassa de Soto's Raka NACA Saba amin and mahtani por Anna Robin we have given you survived mahtani the seventh that is repetitive which most scholars say it's as water fatty well Cora Anna loving and the glory cry
and then next the next is that amazing Latin with the nine aka Mamata NaVi as well German don't look at what others have.
You have the Quran
Did you get it? Don't look at Jr. This is Saraswati, salt
don't look at what people have and we all do right and he didn't say what he said there are more than nine a kilometre NaVi as well German Zahara tell highlighted dunya the glory and the beauty of this life
before that we gave you the aura I need to bring this back to my life. We don't so power law I'm talking about myself I'm not talking about anybody else is the fact that I have the Quran the fact I was given the fact that I can read it the fact that I if I put effort, I will understand it. And I say this to everyone if I put effort to it as I put effort for anything else in my life, which we all do, I for sure will understand it. Because as I said to myself before anyone else if anybody can understand that I can if anybody memorized it I can. If anyone can live by it, I can you know what I'm saying? So bring this back again every time remind yourself that given a secret and found more
money, remind yourself reminder which benefits the believers meaning Don't say I know I know. You know, I know. I know. I know. But I just don't remember it. You know what I'm saying? Bring it back. Again. I'll give you an example. Every time I talk to people about try to drink more water, what do they tell you?
Many reasons I don't like it. I go remember. I'm sorry It makes me uncomfortable or it makes some people say it makes me feel nausea. Some people says it makes me go to the bathroom a lot. Right? But then you keep telling them the benefits the benefits that you keep reminding them and it's like how do I do that? Right one of the easy way I tell patients is just put the bottles of water in front of you in the morning. And you say by the end of the day I need to drink these by the end of the day within a week you'll do it because you literally these are practical examples because you are what are you doing you're reminding yourself it's in front of you I say put it on the kitchen
counter for these small bottles, count them here because people tell you eight cups a day and say what eight and then I put the eight and see how you will do with Allah is exhausted. Now the difference between water and Koran huge. But the main thing is when you are trying to read the Quran there is a force helping you and that is a loss. Panton
is helping you because he It is his book. So the first key is loving. The second key is bringing back Why you are reading first one in why you are reading and this is what we're going to cover today is knowledge. I want to learn. I am opening this book to learn same thing when you open any book let's talk what is the common books you read these days? If any.
Right so hamdulillah Quran right? But that's the exceptions to the rule. Quran is not the most common book queried. Let's be very honest. Right?
Very common social media, social media. It depends who are you and where are you? Right social media can be Snapchat can be Instagram can be Facebook can be WhatsApp can be mass.
It just depends right? Bring back the same What do you read in there?
Everything really I read then I have the Cora lesson on the Quran itself, meaning I'm carrying my phone wide with all the WhatsApp but when it comes to the Quran, something else comes up true or false and I have the Quran app in my phone. True Absolutely. So this is what I need to bring back I need to bring back that lets me put some effort to read the Quran and my goal is number one I want to Allah What do you want to learn?
What do you want to learn?
Okay, my last contact that somebody will answer as I know everything about Allah I don't need to know read the Quran I know a lot. People say this or I in me the negative in me say this right? So what do I need to learn about Allah so I'm putting somebody on myself tells me I guess a human being tells me I know Allah. Okay. So when I don't get something Why do I get upset? Or let me know when I lose something? Why do I get upset? Man I know what I know a lot true. I know very well. So when you tell me I know Allah very well I'm going to tell you so you know Allah is the one who gives an Allah is the one who holds right Allahumma Malika MOOC to kilomole cannon Tisha attends yarmulke Manisha
to resume and Tasha what are the what are the lumen Tasha? Here you can hire in the color coalition in Korea. If you want to introduce someone to Allah Subhana Allah use one of the ayat is this one this is what I am on my mannequin, Oh Allah, you are the owner of all the the server and of all sovereignty? Or you are the king of all the king's magical milk? Or you are the owner of everything that needs that can be owned
you give sovereignty to whom you ever wish? What is your alma mater and you strip it off from anyone you want it milk here could be money, could be power, could be knowledge, could be status could be anything, you give it to whom you want, and you strip it away, take it away from the very anyone you want. And to zoom into and you glorify and dignify whoever you want, which is illumination and you arrays or put down people, okay? I know this right? I know Allah very well. So when I do something, why do I get upset?
Why don't I say a lot? You gave it to man, you took it back. Because you don't know that knowledge of That's what I'm saying. That's why I need to read again and again and again. So the first knowledge the Quran is gonna give me is the knowledge about Allah subhanaw taala. himself. Even if I say to myself, I know if I ask any one of you do you know, Allah is Allah man, Allah is the merciful? The answer is why you're asking me Of course, ABCs I was three years old, and they taught me fit. Okay? So when I see externally, in this world around me in my home or outside, and I see things that is, quote unquote Narottama in here.
Why not immediately come in me and says you're a law. You are a rough man. There is Rama here. You are the one who you are the merciful. There is mercy here. I'm not saying it, I can deny it. You know what I'm saying? When I think this way, than the way I react to things is very different. So number one is a name I need to keep reminding myself of the of the who Allah subhanho wa Taala is and that's what the Quran Teach me not only the names of Allah, one of the things I learn about the stories in the Quran is who is Allah? And how patient sabula Allah is and how Allah is capable of doing things changing things Yes or no? Right and just read enough enough if you read the story of
satana Musa This is one of the beautiful things you teach your children when the bedtime story is the stories of the prophets and you don't have to go in the details just get the with every part of the story and name of Allah has gonna come so power Lansing said numbers because I was just reading it this morning right and everybody's part of the story and name of allah comes by the color is have African American Muslim he I want to say no more so talk to Allah hunter says we are too scared to go to Pharaoh. Too scared, right? Nice. Uh, don't. This is exactly what he says so to Sha color. his hobby is to go with our signs in our in a la la comas Morocco. Morocco. Mr. Mian. I am with you. I'm
so I have a child in the house.
gotta teach them this I and I'm gonna say a lot here's everything Even if I'm not with you in the room Allah is hearing you if you're saying good things he's here he's hearing it not if you're not saying good pleasant things Allah has hearing you leave the limit at that stage years later it's gonna come back you know what I'm saying? So they're not put on first knowledge is learning about Allah yes but I need to give it a little bit more detail and as I am saying this I'm going to ask myself do I really know the knowledge that is in the aura
Do I know you all saying you know Alhamdulillah for example, I'm going to I'm going to share with you some of the nicest sayings of scholars say number one episode he says want to learn this way this is exactly what is optimal if you want to learn from total Quran go through the Quran go through the Quran would go through it's been through in the Arabic language meaning give it its due right go and details in its you have the knowledge of everything before you everything coming after.
Literally, literally somebody somehow I don't remember this but this subject exactly what I'm saying came up and said so the Quran will teach me how it will how to cook
or the Quran will teach me what to eat.
The answer is absolutely and said Really? What is going to teach me what to eat
kulu me muffle. arbic hallelujah.
Everything is Allah Allah Allah and don't eat
and don't eat don't actually don't waste don't eat pork. Don't drink blood. That's what it is right? Don't eat dead body added flesh.
Let's just follow the rest is history. So the Quran does not always come and spell out everything but gives you a gives me give us principles. So he said you want to say NAB loved him. So you want to learn? Go through the Koran.
I like the second one has no idea is like the grandchild the grandchild of Rasul Allah santosa. He said the following the people before you Now remember, he is the grandchild of roswaal. He Satoshi. So this is about how many years later, not 1000s. And he was talking to the people around him. He said, the people before you meaning the Sahaba before you saw the Quran as I messages from our last panel messages.
And now now it's very much applied to our life, right? Because and this is just to bring your attention, what is the average number we look at our phones per day, there was a study about that.
Give a number.
How often we look at our phones per day, 150 times
150 times. Right. And that's we have notification which is on his own vibration. And we know if there was something we were against, but we still true or false, right? So he says say nationally, or to people to the people before you for sure before us. So the Quran has messages from Allah.
You get the point messages are from Allah. What How did they react to the message? They didn't delete it?
No, that's not because that's reality. This is reality. Right? Right. If a message I think again, if a message come to you from somebody you really like love and respect, or dignity dignitary, what are you gonna do with the message? Save it? And then every few every now and then every now and then how often you gonna read it?
How often are you gonna read the message?
How often you will read the message, right? On and on and on. Then you can start showing it to people by
messages from Allah pantalla they used to read it and reflect and understand in the night. They practice it in the morning.
Panel I loved what I was reading this like y'all love the same word, or a certain it's messages the same.
It's a panela but it's so much the way we are living these days, right because we don't get letters anymore. The other day I was reading one of the professions that is going to die within the next 25 years is it's the post office that man the mailman no more. Right How often do you go and pick up your mail? versus before used to wait? When is he coming by? So let's say you don't mean a lot right?
And another follower he says we have never asked the companions of Ross Wallace autos about something but the answer does from the
dislike these these words I read I was like your law and he's saying this is a follower and he was frt of Kufa. He was like very knowledgeable man in Kufa, you're talking about these legendary people. He said I have never asked the companions about something but they answered from the Koran. But we are way behind them.
This robot himself like a placeholder ailment. We are way behind us we don't we don't know. And we don't get what they are.
They are getting and say now blah blah Omar says take the Quran I love these things is this remind keep reminding me and I would love Sharla maybe one person can do it or maybe you are no I can do it is take these small statements make it as a reminders, sandwich as reminders like we get all this WhatsApp messages, all the messages let's get these once a week and I personally am a person who needs an I have to read it not only messages, so I probably will print it or make a small you know, like things you hang it on your on the fridge or on your mirror or in the car, Ali Khan bill Quran. This is what say not love, no more says, Take the Quran, you will be asked about it. Fair enough.
You will be asked about it and you will be rewarded by it. And it's enough admonition to the wise person. Smile is enough admonition to the wise person
and hasn't robustly said the following now we need to know who are we if I tell you if someone asked you
you read the Quran you're gonna tell me Yes, it's not it doesn't matter how much you read is not the issue is not here. So you you are a person who people regard you as a person of the Koran meaning you are from the people of the Quran, right? The people of the Quran, three categories. This is what he's saying it has an industry which one you are let's before I tell you what it is, which one we are, if I tell you which part of which portion of the Quran you are.
What do you think
you're too scared to answer. Exactly. So he said, there's a three people, there's people who took the Quran as their profession. So they teach, and they give bite. And don't misunderstand this, right? Some people, that's their income source, right, and all scholars agreed if that's your income source, that's fine, right? But that's what it is for them the Quran profession, they teach and they invite. So that's one group of people, the other group of people that will fall those who memorized it, they know every single letter, they know the page as it is, but they do not practice it, why they have not looked after, or preserve the do's and don'ts. And
the third, the third group, and they said I have to read this, they looked at the Quran as the cure
as the cue so they put it on the illness they have in their heart, and they make it like a garment they are wearing it every day. The garment so they brought the Quran to their heart and put it on the disease of their of their heart like when I have a wound and I go and bring for example a medicine. So they brought the crumple to on that disease in their heart. Right. And they wore it as their tight garment around them. And they felt the fear and pushed by it all sorrow and sadness. And this is what he says those are the one who by them and by their relationship with the Quran, the oma will get benefit and the oma will get better.
And he said now that's the last one. And he said that last group is more rare than the red gold. The red gold is very expensive, you know that?
That group of people who not necessarily have fall so don't think I have to be a hafele He didn't say they are they said they looked at for example, can I be that third person you are looking at me I was like, What are you talking about? I will answer simple. Give me a Muslim. I will say 90% of the Muslims no fit.
Right? No I thought you have so that will fatty. How do you find a Muslim does not work. In fact you're very unlikely, right? Everybody knows that fattier wooding Surah Al Fatiha, which is more than enough and apply this the Sumatran Fatiha will be the mother
In the tablet, the injection, right the patch for the disease I have in my heart winning the communist disease we have these days what is the commonest disease we have these days?
Not not physical, I'm talking about the main things internally that we are all suffering from.
In general people What is it?
For example, jealousy, greed, right? depression, feeling down, nothing peace, there is something missing in my life, you know anxiety all these right? If I bring Al Fatiha right, if I bring up now I can save is to some people Fatiha is enough. No need for any other medication. But that doesn't mean we don't take other medications. The am I'm a physician, but I'm talking about if I if any Muslim Nosal Fatiha and let's say my main my main problem inside me I am not living in peace
I there's always things I worry about. Even if there is nothing I worry about I worry about then I think and there is people like that right so time Allah use they either say it or do you see it? Okay, number one, I know what is the problem that I bring the Quran I bring the Fatiha right Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim done
right and I'm not saying just saying saying it feeding it keep reminding your Allah Teach me You are the merciful so that's what I am worried about. Tell me how it is I mean this is not something you do it once or twice something practice practice practice I'm just bringing the principle it's all that I need to be of the third person which is doesn't have to be I know the whole and all but at least what I have what I know whether it's an IO it's an A hole surah was a part whatever I you bring this and to look at what is my main problem and bring it and put it right there? which one we are some of us none
neither we are in the profession of teaching learning Quran neither of the group have the file even if they don't know what they are reading nor are we from the people who are rate whatever we know we are putting it to cure ourselves right?
the main thing the Quran we are actually how do I know I learned the Quran and I always ask myself this actually how do I know I learned this deep
in your daily practice? Exactly. That's very nice, beautiful in my daily practice. So I know I learned the Quran and I'm gradually going into that third group. Why? Give me example.
Give me an example. And I say you know what, what? Like all this listening or reading what am I doing? Allah has granted I can tell the Quran for me, right? Again, Allah gave me Taka login Taka reliance on him. Allah made me patient. I need to think of me before and after. As we say, right before I learned and after I learned the directly the Quran changed me because this is what it says and when
I say now also I'm loving them authority says enough knowledge. The knowledge you have is way more is very enough. If it will take you to the fact of knowing Allah and having the all from Allah, then you know, then you don't have to go into more you know what I'm saying when to translate to action? So reliance on a loss pantile right. How do I know I have reliance on on loss Pantone I've read all the Pura Nomura, waka waka autoworker alhaj la de la mood and rely on the one who know the everlasting will never die. Kapha be wakita enough is almost pantalla for you. Alexa lobby Catherine is an ally enough for you for his service. All these you read, right? Okay. Now bring it in reality.
Reality. When do I need the reliance on a law? Usually, usually. But I'm talking about specific I need you to start because making the Quran as the garment is not general. All the time, of course, but I'm talking about things happens in my life. Normally, when do I need the token when everything else in life doesn't work? Right? When things doesn't work the phone, for example, I always bring this because that's very common for all of us. Like you drive your car and you have a flat tire. Right? The first thing you do on a flat tire is what
you look for your phone
Right exactly you're looking to play or look for insurance or you call somebody right no phone
you forgot the tone or the phone is dead
now comes Now show me your reliance on
Show me number one not external I'm not sure me I need to tell myself Show me your tawakkol number one my feelings what is going to happen here? And number two my reaction then I know that the IRS the vs IRA and Robin graduate or wacol,
ca v wakita. All the one I'm reading I'm really he became the disease, the medicine to the disease, did you get my point? So
So back again, knowledge, I need to look into things I already know any, don't start learning things, you're not bringing things that you already know. And then bring it on your life and see this is where when you spend time alone, or when you start reflecting on things you do during the day before we go to bed, what did I do? And then you start seeing, I did very well I failed this I should have done this better. Now this one very well look at this and always bring it from the Quran. One of the ways also, which I really loved it is when you open the Quran also about knowledge. Put a goal for something to learn.
Right? What do you want to for example, what do you want to learn from the Quran? This is the question you're going to put yourself and you can put every month one goal, or every year one goal, right? Give me one goal and put a goal like and when you're when you put a goal you will work for that goal, right? If you are looking for something right you will find it. But if you open a cupboard, accidentally you probably will not see something, right. But if you are looking for it, you will see it, you get my point, right, so it's accidental, you're looking for a cup, you'll see the cup, even if the cup is up and because you can't keep looking. But if you open the cup, if you
open the cupboard by mistake, you probably will not see the cup. So puts a goal for you. Why don't I understand the Quran because I am shattered when I opened up
my brain is way more things I'm going to say to myself, I'm going to look at whatever which surah you are, I am going to look at for example, one of the names one of the characters of Allah or I'm going to look and see does the Quran really have something called patient that's it and these days again is very easy because you cannot do easily Google Search give the IRS go back to the hora so put your goal that you want to learn from the Quran other than I want the reward the for loss pantalla What do I want to learn from it? And this especially in Ramadan or specially when there is time off, or when you are listening and some people learn the Quran teach the Quran by subject not
by the surah which is amazing. There was one one teacher who liter away by subject, not by the surah how much they know the Quran by the subject. So look at you What do you need in your life in this moment? Why this moment I need to be grateful to Allah. I have everything. Everything I want, right? Look at where is gratefulness in the Koran. Right What is sort of Chicago for example is there's something called shorter sugar. There's a chapter in the Quran talks about being grateful
many places surah chapter Yeah.
shorten the BS surah of the bounties of Allah
bounties of Allah so my point is look at what what do you need in your life now for example I want to memorize the Quran I want to learn more about the Quran right I want to be successful in my life right I want to study hard and get a higher highest degree I want to go to this college or that college put that as a goal and see the virtues of knowledge in the Quran
and then you're going to say wow so when you read the Koran to help you understand put goals don't open it up okay whatever you know sometimes they okay let's see, then we'll just open
power like you know what casual casual This is my what I'm trying to change the vanilla to myself before anyone else is I move my relationship to the heart from the casual reading because I love the fact I am going to I am reading I'm going to get a reward truly
focused learning reading that's that's a huge difference one of the thing which this especially for us myself included were in the quote unquote calling people Tomas pant on the more you know about the Quran the more effective you are and the best way I have seen it personally change people or call people to Islam is through the aura
but I cannot call people to something I don't know about
so when I go special when I go for interfaith right when I have a non Muslims with me around me, which we all do, and we we beautiful when you you don't have to bring the idea itself, but you bring the concept right? I mean, I had this conversation very recently with a non Muslim they couldn't believe that is the mention of marry in the Quran. Allah be pleased with and I was like absolutely there's a whole chapter about and then literally I couldn't believe even there's so many Muslims don't know this they don't and Jesus it's in the Quran. Jordan your holy book this exactly they asked me in your holy book I was up here then imagine yes and you're very confident and then
somebody says really show me now we are a problem right? So if you already know this like again because we are live in a non surrounded by non Muslims I need to know these so I'll make a simple search. So you'd need a certain the Quran and bring one or two or three is one or two. Right? And you know what? Well if you don't memorize it hamdulillah You know what? Well then you are so put goals when you're reading the Quran what I want to learn he put subjects especially want to learn about the Quran if you have children, teach them one of the things I found I always bring children's attention when I say this question is give me the names of the animals in the Quran.
The kids go banana crazy.
And then they start competing. Right? So Pamela I'm I wouldn't say only children, even adults, they because it's like very simple, very nice. And they start numbering them 1234 animals. And then next will be after realize, like, why this animal is mentioned not the other animal. That animal has something a lot wants to teach you. It's not the name of the animal is something in that you get the point it's, it's a book, that there's a lot of knowledge, I can learn from it. And I can definitely improve by it.
As much as this question, I'm going to ask you all and ask myself, he says, the people of the Quran What does the Quran implanted in your heart?
What did it implant in your heart?
And what is believing unless pantalla so it's implanted in me they believe in Allah. And what does they believe in Allah?
connection with Allah Subhana Allah the Quran engraved in implanted in, excuse me a plant that I am seeing the leaves of a man
right? So that that all goes to what your answer. So the plants of Allah Think of it as a plant and you planted in your heart, right? The email, the face itself, the plans of faith is going to come number one is obeying God, because I believe in him. When I when I believe in him, I believe in every character of him Spanner, right. And what is the another leaf, look at plants and leaf was the other leaf of a man.
Strength and movement. Only the person who believes in a law truly is very strong, because you're very close to the source of strength. Right? That doesn't mean if I am weak, my Eman is weak. I don't like that. Why? Because people can take this in a negative way. But I will say the closer I get to Allah and I'm in in my heart, not externally, only in my I am
stronger, I am more patient, I am more understanding I am more loving, I'm more caring, I am more aware of me and my shortcomings not the other people. So mazzer are chronically will become what did it cleanse yourself? And he was asking to the people, what do they implant and this is why there is a lot of talk these days is about, we need to move from teaching people to memorize the whole art to understand the core.
And if we can do it, I mean one of the schools there actually was that it's together. So the memorization may take 10 years, but it is together comes together. Really, it's really make people change what I want to leave with every one of you and everybody take one I have the haoran today, each one of you and this is different. Right? And stop with this I you know what stop is like write it down and look at it and see And see And see an article loss on data. And what is this idea? is teaching. If I ask you right now, what give me an idea. Each one is in is different. I have one one verse in the Quran, one verse in the Quran that will stop you when you hear it, or bring your
attention. Give me one. Anyone
have one law. It's not an ayah Actually, it's an end of I write a lot is the best, their best. Or the only one you want to use it even in an ICER who can give sustenance. This stops you right and I'm sure it has an implication in your life. Right? For example. Yes me
a lot. Yeah, you're Latina, Lima, taco Luna, matapalo Cabo maakten en de loi and topolino a lot of people who you believe the Eman Lima taco Luna Matata follow Why do you say things you don't do it yourself? And I always say this to myself number one, and number two mothers who have children Lima taco Luna mother tough How do you tell your children to do things and you don't do it? You tell your friends to do something you don't do it.
And then a law tells you Kabbalah McDonough and Allah one of the most disguised and hated things to love and that that you say what you don't do so just you have to be this actually scares me this I I was like y'all a lot every time I hear it or I read it out loud Don't make me don't make any of those. Don't allow me to be of those because sometimes we are and we've dragged to this so stop what the courts walk for take time with one I have the Quran one that comes to your mind any I even if you don't know the verse, just tell me the meaning.

Now the last one which is beautiful to end with is a love. Offer or refer or Allah for this all in the Quran. be forgiving, forgiving, always forgiving. Why do I need to stop at this I write many ways, my relationship with Allah. And more to me is my relationship with people.
And you hear this a lot young and old. I will never forgive this person. Yeah, I cannot you don't know what they did to me. We always say right, if we don't say it, we feel it. Right? What was the I was

You still feed me, he still give me he still makes me feel good. He still gives me the Quran so gives me children and dunya and everything. So I cannot be fraction of this.
What did they do to me is not what I did to Allah, I did not give them life. I did not give them sustenance, I cannot give them everything they have, are not capable of doing everything I want. But he does. And he put a gift why I cannot forget. That's how you learn. That's how you learn.
from others mother knows that a person has sexually abused.
I tell you what, so should I forgive someone who killed my child? Should I forgive somebody who abused my child? Because again, children? Should I have used somebody who betrayed me? What do you mean by forgiveness? That you have to separate, there is punishment. And there is forgiveness don't don't mix this up. Forgiveness meaning me personally, inside to me. And this is a high high status, where I will pray for that person, that Allah Subhana Allah guides them and they will not do this to anybody else. But should should that person be punished because of the crime? That's absolutely that's the heart of the community. Right? If it is in your hand, and people will look at you and
says if you forgive him, we will forgive him and I'll walk with you in that status, which is actually this is a concept in the gene or someone kills someone. Right? What is the punishment in this the death unless the family forgive?

That's the man who knows the Quran lives by Did you see the point? If I ask it or I feel it the way you ask the answer is no. Are you telling me I'm gonna forgive somebody like this? It's very hard don't think this is easy. But when I have the knowledge I hope now it's becoming easier when I know the knowledge of the Quran and when I read it and I see what happens to Satan see dad He said the wife of Ross Wallace Auto Center
