We thank Allah who believes that you will gel for having gathered us here today. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the mela Iike and to cause his mercy and his Sakina to descend upon us and to raise us with the Gambia alayhi wa salatu salam, and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean, Musa alayhis

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

Salatu was Salam was sent at a time where there was sorcery, people were practically practicing all sorts of witchcraft and magic. So Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam was given a miracle that would blow their minds, they were given, he was given the miracle of the staff that changed into a snake and the hand that shone as bright as the sun. So this was clear for everybody to see that it was from Allah subhanahu wa taala. As a result, there was no opportunity for them to disbelieve after that, Isa Alayhi Salatu was Salam was given the miracle of healing, because at the time, there was an exodus of people who would heal others. There were doctors that were experts at doing so. Lisa

00:01:48--> 00:02:40

Alayhi Salatu was Salam with no medical history, no known studying that he engaged in etc. He killed the people with the power of Allah subhanahu wa taala with the permission of Allah subhanho wa taala. When Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came, the people were engaged in poetry, they loved poetry. And this was in fact one of the ways that they would raise themselves in society. So they would stand up and speak and people would actually look up to them. And they obviously looked up to wealth and having many children etc. But this was one of the ways that they really respected the person even though he may actually be of low social standing low income, he may perhaps not have

00:02:40--> 00:03:32

many children, he may be looked down in society, the day he stood up, and he spoke, the people respected him. Why? Because they realize this man has the gift of the gab. So they respected this. So Allah subhanahu wa taala gave Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Quran. And this Quran was so eloquent in its recitation, that they could not believe that this is something that a human being is uttering. They were so astounded by it, that we find that the leaders of Quran that persecuted Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during the day would actually go to his house, Abuja Hill Amrok movie Sham, the likes of him would actually go to the house of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:32--> 00:03:51

and listen to him reciting the Quran. Here, hear him reciting this beautiful word of Allah subhanahu wa taala. They couldn't keep themselves away from it, it was it had a magnetic pool that brought them to it.

00:03:52--> 00:04:33

And there were three of them, in fact that would listen to the Quran. And they would get so engrossed and engaged in this Quran, that by the end of the night, as they were leaving, they actually spent the entire night listening, listening to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recite it. And as they were leaving, they bumped into each other. What are you doing here? Well, you know, whatever, and then leave. And the next night, the same thing happens. And the third night, the same thing happens and then they sit and they say, Hey, hold on. We can't do this. If we continue to do this, then we're hypocrites. The people will say that they listen to the Quran at night and they

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

come out in the day and tell us that it's a lie. You see, the Quran had this magnetic pool and has this magnetic pool. The amazing thing about the miracle that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given is that it is with us today. It is with us for here to open up but where is its place? Its place is on the shelf at home. Its place is in our phones. Perhaps our

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

fingers even pass over the app moving on to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. But we won't click on the app of the Quran. Why? Why?

00:05:10--> 00:05:54

Allah subhanahu wa taala gave us a miracle that remains with us today. Musa Allah your Salatu was Salam, his hand shone. And yes, it was there for the people to see but it's over and it's gone. None of us can see his hand shining today. The Quran is a bright light that is there for us to open up and read and enlighten our souls with it but we find ourselves keeping away from it. Perhaps it is not us keeping away from the Quran but Allah subhanahu wa taala keeping us away from it. May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us while Calado assumes being Nakatomi Delgado has

00:05:55--> 00:06:47

to do Jolla and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam complained to Allah subhanho wa taala. He says My people have taken the score on as something that they have divorced. They keep away from it. They don't want to engage with it. You see, at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they understood the value of the Quran. So you find Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam walking into the masjid into his masjid and he hears someone reciting the Quran beautifully. So he goes and he stands by the wall and it's it Neomi had this Sahabi was well known to recite the Quran beautifully, and he reads and as he ends the Quran as he ends his recitation of the Quran, Muhammad

00:06:47--> 00:06:52

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to himself, ask, now's the time to ask.

00:06:53--> 00:07:41

And he asks Allah subhanahu wa to Allah. And Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Ask, and he asks Allah subhanho wa taala. So after he had heard, or recited the words of Allah subhanho wa taala, he made Allah subhanahu wa taala hear his desires that which he wanted, he poured his heart out to Allah subhanho wa taala. What we don't realize is these words were actually are actually words that was spoken by an herbalist that you will gel on, he spoke them to Gibreel Alayhi Salatu was Salam Jibreel heard them and brought them down to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so that which we recite today are words that was spoken by Allah herbalist that you will Jellal

00:07:42--> 00:08:03

words spoken by Allah Hubbell is that you will Gelatt we don't realize this, we don't actually take it into consideration when we open the Quran. And we just read it. You see, we've taken the Quran we've let it go, by the way, this spot on guides to that which is forthright in then

00:08:04--> 00:08:59

dealing nothing here. Are you by sheer meaning, indeed, this Quran guides to that which is upright and righteous. And it gives glad tidings to the believers, you've got a problem. Open up the Quran and read read the words of your maker, and you will find yourself getting up from that Mejlis as light as a feather. Why? Because you've read divine language from verbal is that you will Gela so not only the recitation, have we left behind them to the side and by the way, but in addition to that, we find ourselves not reading the meaning not making an effort to understand what Allah wants us to understand. So we leave the meaning on the site as well. And if I were to give you a letter

00:08:59--> 00:09:41

from someone very important to you, in another language, you'd make every effort to translate that and understand it. This is from Allah hora boulerice Is that you will generally when will we say this is most important to us? This is something that I should make an effort to understand. Allah sent me a message. I need to understand what my maker wants of me. When will we make that effort and Ramadan is known as the month of the Quran. Ramadan is around the corner. Ramadan is a few days away shahada Ramadan and levy Zilla fee in

00:09:43--> 00:10:00

the month of Ramadan, the one in which the Quran was revealed. This Ramadan is a few days away. And the way to prepare for Ramadan is to recite the Quran, open it up every single day and read

00:10:00--> 00:10:50

sited for hours on end until you are ready to meet the month of Ramadan. And in this manner, you will find yourself blossoming in Ramadan and that Ramadan will be so powerful that at the end of it you will find yourself in a situation where you are enlightened throughout the year. You feel that light, you feel that exuberance you see we all have problems and we all have trials and tribulations and difficulties but it's the way and the manner in which we deal with those difficulties that makes the difference. If we are dealing them with them by going through the Quran, and looking at what Allah subhanahu wa taala wants of us, then we will find ourselves sailing through life watching our

00:10:50--> 00:11:17

lives as though they are it is a real in front of us playing it doesn't matter what happens because I am with Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanahu wa taala make the Quran a means of our success. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the ability to recite the Quran to understand it and to teach it teach it to others.
