articulating Islam in the 21st century
handleable anime no serrato Santa Monica Vienna Mohammed Raja Sabha Dwayne Yes, Hannah law, any discussing about the Quran is very lovely,
very lovely and very inspiring. And Subhanallah My dear brothers,
you know, that, in of itself is the best marriage.
That's why, to be honest with you, hadn't calendula commanded us to understand the Quran to help people to understand the Quran otherwise,
maybe just listening to the Quran is the best Maya. And if you speak after that the person should feel embarrassed to speak after because even if he was the best eloquent person in the entire world, he wouldn't be able to express the strengths and the full meanings of the Quran. He wouldn't be able to do that. And if he really respects himself, he should respect the Quran. And he should feel embarrassed to
give more ever to people that can be compared to the river to the admonition of the Quran. The Quran is the best nor ever is the best reminder Yeah.
never become what she found only Matthew Soto who
is more meaning but because
we need to understand the Quran. Yes, that's why we are
doing going through the Tafseer of the Quran.
This is one thing the other thing My dear brothers and sisters, you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the very well known Hadith editor, in which he said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the first people to enter the first people to enter Hellfire
are three. Yeah, the first one of them is a person who learned the knowledge or he memorizes upon
but he memorized the Quran for the wrong reason.
Yes. Why? He wanted people to look up to him. And to say that he is odd. So he memorized the Quran not for the sake of Allah, Allah Allah but for the sake of what fame? Yeah, he will be among the first people to enter the fire of hell. Now, listen, as we have mentioned this. Anyway.
This is a very important point. Many people don't like to memorize the Quran because the shavon comes to them and tells them that see you are not memorizing the Quran for the correct reason you are memorizing the Quran for what for saying
yes. And as a result of this they stop memorizing the Quran or they stop putting an effort and I have seen some people like this they ended by what losing their Deen
not just not memorizing the Quran losing them the some of them the best of them is very, very, any old age old, very mature age and they still they are unable to decide the Koran just recite the Quran not memorize the Quran properly. So don't do that. Yes, even if you started to memorize the Quran for the wrong reason.
Yes, for the wrong reason.
See, just to summarize it, you are one of two people either you are an adult or your other child. If you are an adult and you started to memorize the Quran for the wrong reason, fix your intention and continue recitation
as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that if the shavon comes to you while you are doing to do then the shiping tells you to what to shorten your sujood because the people are looking at you then what you need to do is what you need to prolong your suit in order to tell the shape of
Yeah, and as the scholar said, generally speaking, stopping good deeds because of fear of Rhea is like doing good deeds for the for showing off. So don't stop good deeds because you are afraid that people will say Oh, Mashallah. He falls
13 1415 tomorrow's 13 1415 or he fasts Thursdays and Mondays on he prays Mashallah look Mashallah he plays his regular salah and demonstrator he comes early to the to the masjid and the first row old he doesn't make the crew from La Jolla. Allah Allah told ya, the Chapin comes to many people and say, See, you are doing it just to show off. Yes, your intention is that they my intention is bad, what shall I do? Stop the good deeds.
Law, my intention is bad, what shall I do?
Fix my intention and continue the good deed because in of itself is good.
Is it clear? So the Hadith is talking about those who
memorize the Quran for the wrong reason. And they knew that they are doing it for the wrong reason. And they continued doing like this. And after that, they were reciting the Quran in front of people again for the wrong reason.
Yes, brothers by and
so so we need really to fix our intentions to memorize the Quran for the right reason. And once we memorize the Quran, we should not show off. And it was mentioned that, as many of the early scholars said, or some of the early scholars said that you might find some people who, Gemma and Kula who Yeah, and he memorized the entire Quran and no one knows that he has memorized what the entire because they were what hiding it all viously generally speaking as a as an anniversary, said, if you were to do good deeds, and hide them, hide them, hide them, hide them, a large Allah, Allah will uncover them.
Generally speaking, if you are really doing good deeds, by that frequently, there will be no so don't worry, this is an educational moment. Right? This is the immediate reward that Allah Allah Allah gives to the person, but don't just be inclined towards that and don't seek it. Yes. Alhamdulillah. Now people know that, Mashallah Yanni, and I'm praying, and for sure, and then they say, Marshall, well, he's praying. And then he said, Yeah, today, I'm fasting as well, by law, don't get into that, that try to resist as much as you can. I was saying that the people are to the adults. And the young people, the young people, normally you find their children, their parents or
pushing them to memorize the Quran, sir.
And how many of the young people? I am sure.
by you, I am sure many of you remember that. Your parents were pushing you to memorize the Quran. And you were what sneaking here and there. So yeah, go to the hepes class and you run away. And then you come back. How was your hepsia? Excellent. By
the time and this happens with so many young people and more fundamental fucka hula? Yeah.
It is a struggle for the parents and the children. One brother told me maybe I don't know whether I mentioned this. I'm sure I have mentioned this. He said that, that when I was young, his mother was a half of the opera. And he said when I was he's now even younger than he is 2324 something like this. He said, when I was 1415 and
13. I was, you know, a teenager. And my mother used to tell me that you can't go to play, except when you finish your run. So go upstairs, do your plan, and then come out. He said, Look, look how stupid we work. Yeah, I used to go upstairs and just sit like this.
Just sit like this. Yeah. And leave the Koran. And then come down. Come. And then I say to my mom, yeah, I finished it. She says, Well, like I can see in your eyes that you did not even opened the most.
But go, Yeah, one time you would regret it.
And he said to me, Well, ah he now? He said his younger brother. Yeah, he is doing the heavy. And his younger brothers of Hannah law. He won one award and then they appointed him as an Imam and he's 15 and he said now, I wish well I if my mother did not allow me to go
I wish she was more strict with me in order to memorize the Quran because now I am regretting it, as she used to say to me.
Go, but one time you will regret. Yeah. And this Subhanallah happens with so many people, countless number of people I came across in my life, even myself. Yeah, I haven't seen most of the people that I maybe came across except maybe the big file. Yeah, they regret that they did not complete the Quran when they were at a very young age. And they accepted the instructions of their parents when they were pushing them to memorize the Quran. And what Subhana Allah amazes me more. A young brother came to me yesterday, and Subhana Allah said, and this is anyway related to what we will be talking about. Yeah.
So Allah, he doesn't have a father, he has a mother, maybe Allah, Allah, Allah, or maybe as we will see, that he was his father was making the out for him or whatever reason, That boy is like 2021. And all of his worry now is to memorize the Quran.
Yeah, Allah, Allah, Allah guided him like this, you might find young people who have taken that path. Anyway, if you are young, or those young people who are listening me and to see that your parents are pushing you to memorize the Quran, or if you believe you have like, a few days ago, a brother, a young brother again, he came and he said that Subhana Allah his entire family is away from the dean.
That's why he said, I don't remember Look at this. I don't remember I ever felt happy at home.
The problems and problems shouting, police fighting drugs.
prison, Jin, shouting all the problems. Yes. And he is the just Yanni among them like a shadow of a paver. Yes, growing in a in a very
bad land. Yeah.
Or very bad soil. He started to practice and to memorize the Quran. This is my biggest nightmare from Allah Jalla Allah. So whether you are a young person, and your parents are pushing you to memorize the Koran, or you became guided and your parents never
encouraged you to memorize the Quran, there is no beginning that you can get it. Yes in this dunya like being attached to the Quran.
There is no bigger nightmare than this. And Subhana Allah, I have never ever seen in my life, a person who memorized the Quran and who is
Yeah, who fails. I have never ever seen a person who memorized the Quran. And you can say
he's a failure.
Subhana Allah and Subhana Allah, maybe I have mentioned this before, but as we are talking about the Quran, maybe it is good to mention that.
Yanni I had the number of stories of people who come to certain countries, they are huffard. And they come. I had number of stories of people who come from Bangladesh to Saudi Arabia to work as may be sweepers, caretakers,
rubbish, people. Yeah. And once they are known that they are people who memorize the Quran, they become Imams, and they slowly, slowly, they become people of dignity and respect. number of people yeah, like this, I came across those people, but like the Subhanallah just because what, because Allah de la Allah honors his book and the law, the law honors the people who What? who memorized the Quran? Yeah, this is the name
of the Quran, my dear brothers and sisters. And as we always say, that don't ever give up say that. Well, I am now 2025 3035 4045 50 whatever. Yeah, just
Become a person of the Quran put a target. Yeah, put a target that you memorize the Quran and you will see that Allah Allah helps you and one time you will become a half. Yeah, one time you will become a habit of the will act. And okay many of you are young, I learned one thing, among the things that I learned and I saw in my life, yeah, I saw in my life, that if Allah, Allah, Allah sees that you want to achieve something,
and the word Allah Allah, so that you are adamant, and so keen and committed to achieve that, to achieve that, Allah, Allah Allah will give it to you.
Yeah, even even some people said that even Kufa, if they want to achieve something in the dunya Yeah. But internally as if they have Look at this, as if they have internal tower coolala
you know, some kuffaar they are like ya da da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da home, usually call Yanni they believe in Allah that Allah is there but they don't want to submit to Allah. So when they are saying, Yes, and they see and they are afraid to be drowned, they will make dua to Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah. So it means that sometimes the coffee goes back to Allah. Yeah, the COVID goes back to Allah. So sometimes the calf internally is making what it is putting his thrust on Allah.
Yeah. So, if he even if he is a coward, but he internally puts trust in Allah to achieve something alone, give it to him.
Yeah, and unfortunately, they translate this, they translate this in the books of management now, that when the person is committed, yeah, he will achieve what he wants to achieve. There are a few there are many examples where you cannot
Okay, in from a materialistic perspective, except to say that this person was internally Yes, depending on real or relying on Allah to give it to him, and he was granted that and there are so many examples, by and I am sure if maybe any of you dig in his life, he will see that or he will or he or she will see that sometimes they were adamant to achieve something and Allah granted it to them.
Yeah, so just to rely on Allah, Allah Allah. And you will see that as Allah said in the head, if you could see Anna and one Abbe de familia wanna be higher? Ah,
yeah, very great. Heidi, I am at what my slave thinks of me. So if he thinks of me bad,
yeah. What does that mean? It means that as if he is not making dua to Allah,
as if he is incurring the anger of Allah. Yes. If he is incurring wrong things from Allah, Allah will say to him, You asked me for something wrong. And I told you not to do so. So it is your fault.
Yeah. And in contrary on contrary to that, if the person thinks of Allah, good means his heart is relying on Allah.
Ya, Allah and Allah Allah will give him what he thought of Allah Allah Allah The good thing that he thought of Allah tala. Yes, my dear brothers and sisters, Baba and this is something difficult but we really need to remind ourselves and keep any pushing ourselves. We ask Allah Allah Allah to make us the among the people of the Quran, okay. As Yanni we really need to buy.
By the way brothers, as I have mentioned the number of times by I feel that
the natural discussion and the natural organic does, yes and for it in many cases.
are more important than the academic one
yeah, so don't think that we have wasted by the time I stopped for all life you think that way is completely wrong oh we did not do Tafseer yes we want to benefit This is part of living. We are talking about the Quran we are talking about something beneficial and the organic thing or the organic devs know many comes from the heart. Yeah, and this is more effective rather than even when you speak about the Quran try to make it organic, rather than academic. Yeah. Because the academic it comes in from your, from your mind only from you prepared it and you just okay. But if it is organic, it it is likely that it comes out of your heart and obviously, that is more effective.
Okay. The idea that we are we were doing tafsir is from Surah tele half verse number 15 was sinal insanity, Wiley de Santa hemella two Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. selecciona Shakira
Santa. Paula. Robbie, I was there any Ashkelon metrical Leti Anthony de
Mello sign Sally hunter Obama was defeated realty in need to be in a coma in the middle muslimeen. We said that. Allah Allah Allah mentioned the good example of the person who is thankful to Allah, Allah Allah and thankful to his parents, because Allah enjoined on him to be kind to his parents. Yes, while saying that in Santa bhiwani they he is on a hammer at home. Oh,
sorry. Yes, we're about to Cora Mohammed. Shah Suna shahara had a look at the journey, the Subhan Allah the Quran this the stream of the Quran the flow of the ayah
Allah Allah Allah mentioned it was sinal insanity validator he
is you know, amazing amazing if you think about it that's why if you know Arabic You say Wow,
this is so incredible. How come someone say something like this? Yeah, well, I You will be amazed. The Iet was signed in Santa was signed in Santa, this came in the past tense, we have enjoined upon the human Yes. Or the human beings. Well, I was saying in Santa Barbara, this title of it is what is Amalie.
Although, linguistically is what? past tense. But that style of it is what? Jani NoSQL we enjoined upon you. Okay, while saying that in Santa bydd here Santa hemella tomo Cora, this is the tally wa tokara Wareham Whoo hoo hoo hoo, Salah Suna Shahada, an ayah that talks about some technicalities on some laws regarding the handle, the period of the pregnancy and the period of of waning, yes.
embedded in the command, which came in a past tense, look at this
miraculous way of talking, I did by Hata, EDA, Bella, Bella Anna Sarah Subhana, Allah, if you don't analyze it, from a linguistic perspective, you read and you don't think that there is something it is so smooth. But if you analyze it, you will say wow, that's true, how come this came like this had Isabella I should do or Marina Santa, the ayah is saying that we have enjoined upon mankind to look after their parents by you. Yeah.
And it is coming What in a form in a style of command do this. Then all of a sudden, it talks about the insane that when he reaches the age of 40, or he reaches the age of full power and strength. Yes, he will make dua to Allah Allah Allah. Yeah.
But how did the jump
Yes, how did the jump take place?
Are you with me brothers? Do you? Do you understand what I'm trying to say that it came in a past tense by and then all of a sudden it started to speak about that in some he will be doing this and that, but it is speaking the style is speaking about the past tense. And now you are talking about the person that person is now doing this under that, how come the past tense should continue as a past tense, or you need to stop, have full stop. And now you say something that shows that you are moving down to a new story. Or you should say that in some way that the human being is started to say this as a result of this, but the ayah did not come like this. But
this is one of the miracles of the Quran that you will not taste it unless you know Arabic not only just knowing Arabic, unless you reflect and ponder upon the Quran.
Yeah. And that's why my brothers and sisters, I asked you, I encourage you, in fact,
he has to have among yourselves every four or five of you to sit and study the Quran on a weekly basis. I have mentioned this a number of times. And by the way, yeah, I really encourage you, my dear brothers and sisters, that may be any two of you, a city of you, you know, we have this method and two of you travel from one place to another place, especially on the highway from London to Birmingham. The whole journey you are just chatting.
Maybe good chat. Yeah, we rarely think we rarely think of what brother Okay, let me hear your call.
Or you read you read you correct me if I correct you or just let us listen, listen, listen to the Quran because many, many, many scholars said listening to the for an intention le is equal to reciting the Quran.
In terms of what in terms of reward
Yani listening intentionally to the follow on by Tom and there is a discussion regarding listening to the Quran from the very quarter's Yes, because it is not an act of a bad at that time. The recorder is not doing a bad Yeah, but listening to it from a human being. Right. Yeah. And deliberately listen to it is as if you are reading it, this is the opinion of work of some scholars. But anyway, without getting into this discussion, but we know that this one's a habit of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Yeah, and he asked Abu Musab to Abu Salah Shari to read how
to read and he said that I like to listen, to listen to the Quran from others. And he prays double musala determines vitamin D and so on. So it and sometimes when you listen, you listen. You think, yeah. And you live by the Quran? Yeah. And you become attached to it more and more. Okay, so
Jani, this is any aside advice, it is an important advice. And once we sit like this and reflect upon the plan, we extract, you know, from the treasures of the poor, and the poor and treasures will never come to an end.
Yet nothing, probably
no miracle miracles of the Quran will never come to an end. That's why even Eonni some of our Messiah said it is wrong for an officer to come and to say I will do a Tafseer of the Quran and I will extract the lessons of the hammer from the Koran and no need for any other Tafseer No, no, no.
It means that you as a human being mastered the Quran and this cannot happen.
Yet this cannot happen. The brother just spoke about being an Imam and making mistakes by Yeah.
They they some people were saying has there been an Imam has there been an email who led the Salah even if he memorized the Quran, like Surah Fatiha if he memorized the entire pour unlike Surah Fatiha has it been known that he never made any mistake in the Quran. And some people
said no. In fact they say that when the person thinks that he must have the aura He will make the next day he will make silly mistakes. But what I mean by silly mistakes Yani like mistakes in this the surah is that he memorizes a lot that he mobilizes the best Yeah, this is the power of the maybe I mentioned to you yeah, Chef Medina Rahim Allah anyway. I don't know that I mentioned it or not but it is like funny stories hannula
I was reading okay to him. I'm the one who passed away a few months. Rahim Allah Tada. And
yeah, he he once told me Look, yesterday, Allah he did the other Imam
in his in his Egyptian journey by way Baddeley Delia yeah and he made so many mistakes by by deleting it. And then the chef said I reprimanded him How come you make these mistakes by and we are as Harry's and people look up to us and you should
Okay, advise me to wait a bit before standing up, etc, etc. So Pamela A few days later. Yeah, this year himself, dammit. Yeah, I don't know which Sala I think motherboard he was leading by Paulina in ya know Nicola illuma de la dee da da da da. He's kept to that.
Why, you know, Nicole naomasa lumada haha
that he skipped it. Five Yes, everyone, Nevada or Florida. And then the people corrected him and as if he Yani
was shocked. What did I do?
By Yeah, he stopped for a while.
And then he repeated the ayah. Yes. And then he he realized that he did not say it. Okay, a complete and this is what Why do you call him as a loser?
But this is the power of the Quran Subhana Allah. This is the power of the Quran.
I don't want to get into this because Jani there are some, some Subhanallah so many stories about this. Maybe I mentioned to you the story of,
of El Casa and delta z. You remember that story? By well, Casa de de la casa de is one of the famous recitals of the Koran and he is one of the main recitals of the seven karate. And then he has Ed they said that he has Ed he used to pick on people on his colors just to show off. So one time, there were in the presence of halifa Harun al Rashid.
So, the seller of Maverick came, so they pushed
al Qaeda forward to leader mode. So, Al Qaeda he because he The halifa is behind him and leading Salah is not Jani as brother just said it needs so many skills. So hon Allah and it is the person has to get used to it from a young age and even that he can make mistakes. So he made the mistake when he was reciting what are the IU l capital L capital.
So, and he as Ed he said, Oh, look, that is it. I have I think Kufa Yes. makes a mistake in this simple solar.
so he was mocking him in front of the halifa Don't ever do that.
Yeah, we should learn this. Don't ever do that. By brothers.
Sisters. So had a lot of Asia came and they what they are asked or they push the LED to lead the masala of Asia. He made the mistake in solid fat Yeah.
Yeah, he made a mistake and Surah Fatiha. And then Subhana Allah He mentioned
by Nikola Tesla in Colombia today that formerly Santa Clara Nikola Tesla in New Canaan belong. Yeah. So anyway, this is so Han Allah, the power of the Quran and it makes you What? Keep revising the Quran and enjoying the Quran. This is Jani part of the LACMA for La Jolla. Okay, so
The IRA I was saying that it is so amazing the style of the IRA was saying an incentive you need a hammer to omokoroa to como or how have you work inside with a Latina Shara all of a sudden it is talking about the person had died Abella should know about our Marina Santa. Yes When he reaches his fallen strength, he will start making dua to Allah jello.

Java because if it is good deed house, it is good deed. You will be pleased with a try. No, no, no, no, no. It might be outwardly good. But Allah de la vida is not pleased with it because it did not come from your heart. And it was not motivated by the right intention.
Yeah, so one last
time some people might do good deeds. Not Salah. Yeah. machinery concerning between people helping people. Yes, they are doing it for the wrong reason now, and I'm a lasagna Hunter. So you will be pleased with it.
Yeah, and Subhana Allah, as some of Assyrian said, look at the door of the person, he made two out of three things one of them is an ash cola. And then the second one is what what an atom Allah. So Allah hunter Allah and the third one is what was the levy jewelry at the first part of the DA is related to what?

outward actions? Yeah, mainly by and the third is what there are for others and in particular, his
Yes, his offspring will select Li ve ri t by and they said this is part of the other of the DA which is what to start with the most important thing which is Salah.
The actions related to Allah. So what metrical lati and amta Allah and Allah is a shocker of the ummah. Yes, immense is or it is originally the action of the heart.
You can't make sugar by your lamps and your heart is not thankful to Allah. Allah Allah. Yes, my dear brothers and sisters, and we spoke about this. So it is part of the idea of the idea is to start with what the neuron that is related to what
