My dear brothers and sisters.
We as an ummah.
Today, our problem is not
that we don't know the solution to our problems.
But rather, we have full knowledge
of the solution to all of our problems.
But rather, our issue is not identifying the solution, but rather implementing it.
And so our example
is like that of a sick person. He goes to the doctor, and the doctor prescribes him medicine.
And he explains him how to use it.
He tells him this is your daily dosage. He gives them the message, he gives him the medicine.
And he takes it home. And he even reads the instructions given on the medicine, providing every detail that he needs to know about this medicine and its usage.
But then, when he takes the medicine, he doesn't bother implementing what he learned from the doctor and from the instructions.
And so he doesn't care about how he uses it. He misses his dosage.
He takes it however he wants
and he doesn't bother implementing
what he needs to implement.
And so my dear brothers and sisters, likewise, is the state of our Ummah today. We all know that the solution to all of our problems is in returning back to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala
returning back to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala
but the question is, how many of us
how many of us
have made the Quran
a central part of our lives today?
Not only reciting it, not only reading it, but pondering over understanding what Allah subhanahu what Allah has said in it and then above all, acting by implementing it in our lives. And so my dear brothers and sisters as Ramadan came to an end
there were those of us who actually
took our time
to reading the Quran in the month of Ramadan.
Those of us who did so once Ramadan came to an end, we took that mishap and we took Docker and put it back on the shelf.
And for many of us,
we will return back to it
until the next
Ramadan, this is if we opened the Quran in the month of Ramadan.
Otherwise the vast majority of Muslims today, many of them, they don't even bother opening the Quran in the month of Ramadan.
And so today we live
in unprecedented times where the OMA has never been so far from the Quran, as it is today. And this is something
that the enemies of Islam, they recognized. They recognize a very long time ago.
And so when they colonize many Muslim lands
and they tried their utmost best
to revert Muslims from their Deen
through physical force they were unable to
and they recognized that the only way that we can make Muslims to leave their deen
is by detaching them from this book from the Quran from the book of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And so my dear brothers and sisters, we have some serious reality checking to do, how many?
How much time have we given
to the Quran,
not only reading it not only receding it
how many of us have revolved the Quran have revolved our lives around the book of Allah subhanahu Attallah.
Many of us will complain
that Arabic is not our mother tongue. But how many of us have made an effort
have made a determined effort
to try to read the Quran to learn how to read it.
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us about the reward for those who struggle with the recitation of the Quran, who was he talking about? He wasn't talking about those whose mother tongue is not Arabic. And yet, they don't bother
to try to learn how to recite the Quran. He was talking about those whether their mother tongue is Arabic or not those who made an effort, who put the time and effort into reciting the Quran, and so he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the one who recites the Quran, while struggling with it, meaning they put the effort into it, and then they make their mistakes, they will have a double reward.
But the question is how many of us have even bothered to put that effort into it?
In the month of Ramadan many of us, we finished the entire program.
And then once Ramadan is over, we struggle.
We struggle with the Quran.
It will Kodama Rahim Allah he says
it is mcru. He says it is disliked to delay finishing your recitation of the Quran
beyond 40 days
and then email me recall Toby.
He commented on this statement, and he says 40 days is for the week and the busy meaning even 40 days is nothing you should be finishing your recitation of the Quran in less than that much time.
But forgettable, even 40 days,
many of us struggle
to finish the Quran in even a year.
And so my dear brothers and sisters, today we witnessed
a neglect of the Quran.
The neglect of abandoning it, turning away from it, like never before
reciting the Quran
has been replaced with our phones and social media. We spend hours upon hours going through the various messages the posts
but we can't even spend a single hour with the Quran.
Listening to the Quran has been replaced by listening to music
To double reflecting over the Quran has been replaced
with video games, putting our energy and our intellect into that, instead of putting it into trying to reflect over the meanings of the Quran
instead of the Quran
instead of the Quran being a complete way of life, where we implement it in our lives, making it a central part of our lives. We have left the Quran to be for certain occasions on the death of an individual
reciting the Quran at that time, and then giving its reward to the dead without realizing
that it is the living who are more in need of that reward. Yes, we who are alive today are more in need of the Quran than those who have gone on the Quran. It revives the hearts
as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a metal ama if any Allah who behaved mean alHuda Well I can tell you why III think
that this guidance and this knowledge that Allah has sent me when this Quran is like
it is like
rain that is set from the sky and hits the ground. What does it do to the ground, the dead Earth, it brings it back to life.
And so the Quran,
it revives the hearts, it gives life to the hearts and just like it gives life to the hearts
it also gives us the light
by which we are guided in this life. And so, if you find your life to be dark,
if you find your life to be dark,
then it is because you have turned away from the source of light. And that is a book of Allah subhanahu. Ohana for ALLAH SubhanA who attempts to describe it throughout the Quran as being late wonderla econ. No Ron Medina that we reveal to you a clear light and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about those who turn away from his remembrance the Quran. Woman out although I'm victory the in Allah here in Allahumma you shutdown Blanca when shuru, Yeoman Tiana Tiana those who turn away from my remembrance the Quran, then for them is a wretched a depressive life
and they will be raised up on the Day of Judgment.
They will be raised up on the Day of Judgment

to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and he took it
and he recited it to his people. And he preached it and he taught it to them.
The vast majority of them did not only reject it did not only disbelieve in it
but they turned away from it.
running away from it, bolting fleeing whenever it was mentioned as Allah subhana wa Tada tells us in the Quran
for Nyla humanity the karate Maria when
what is wrong with them turning away from the remembrance the Quran
in whom homeroom was Stanfill. For rotten qaswarah
wild donkey is
praised that bulls that flee that runaway when,
when they hear when they sense a predator when they sent a hunter ready to attack them.
So this is how they treated the Quran.
And this is why
they would advise one another,
to stay away from this burden
to block their ears. When a newcomer would come to Mecca. They would warn them
they would warn them from this Quran. Why? Because they knew of the impact that the Quran had
on the hearts as long as there was nothing preventing the hearts
from hearing this message,
from stubbornness from the Hawa of the neffs. From the warnings of these Kuffar and these enemies of Islam, as long as a pure clean heart comes and listens to that message of the Quran, it will accept it right away.
So they recognize that
and this is what made them
to flee from this Quran.
And this is why
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam finally had enough of it
and made his complaint to Allah subhana wa Tada.
And whenever a prophet or a messenger complains to Allah,
about anything, then it is a grave matter. It is a serious thing, the prophets and the messengers of the past, when they complain to Allah Subhana Allah subhanho wa Taala about something about their people, a loss of Hannah who had to hide or would hasten the punishment.
And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam complained
while on over a SUTI
we'll call on Rosalie rugby in comi, tell her who had a look around him.
And the messenger he said,
My Lord, the messenger, he refers to the Prophet sallallahu it was seldom my people,
they have taken this paren as neglect, they have neglected it, they have abandoned it. They have not only disbelieved in it, but they're turning away from it. They don't even want to hear it.
And so although
this area was revealed, describing
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and his complaint about his people Quraysh it is an idea that can be applied to every single person who comes after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, until the day of judgment,
who abandons the Quran, neglects the Quran. Does it have any place for the Quran in his life?
Ignore clay him.
Rahimullah, he says.
He says that 100 of the Quran, neglect of the Quran. Abandoning the Quran is of various types. The first is to abandon listening to it.
Abandon believing in it like Quraysh like the kofod of Mecca, who did not want to even listen to it and did not believe in.
Secondly, he says neglecting,
abandoning acting by
not stopping at it's halal and It's haram. Even if a person says he believes in it, and he reads it, but he does not implement it in his life. Thirdly,
neglecting judging by it, making it it making it the judge between us in matters pertaining to the soul of the deal, the fundamentals
The deal as well as the furore the secondary matters of the deen and believing that it does not provide certainty.
Meaning, you may believe in the Quran as being from Allah.
But you're not convinced that every single word of it is truth from Allah. Like some people today, who would rather put their faith and their belief in what sciences over what Allah subhanho wa Taala has said in the Quran for three
abandoning neglecting to dump water of it,
reflecting over it, trying to understand it, trying to gain knowledge of what Allah has intended by each and every single word that he has revealed. Yes, receiving it is a good thing. But there is no benefit of reciting the Quran. If you abandon and neglect, trying to understand its meanings, even if you don't understand the Arabic language, pick up, pick up a translation of the meanings of the Quran, pick up a Tafseer of the Quran, sit in lessons of Tafseer to try to gain an understanding of what Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed. And what has he intended by each and every single area that he has revealed 50
neglecting and abandoning using the Quran for treatment for the diseases of the hearts rather looking for treatment, looking for treatment from other places.
And so even aka you He concludes and he says all of this, all of this comes under allah subhanahu Attallah statement on our rasuluh rugby in a woman who had Al Quran and Madura that complaint that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made when he said Yeah, Rob, My people have taken this grin in neglect, and have abandoned it, and then finally ignored him he says, Even if some types of neglect may be lighter, and less dangerous than others. Finally my dear brothers and sisters, let us not forget
let us not forget
that in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala
the word filthy Len heavy, two times and two times.
Let us ponder over this. Allah subhanahu wa Tada mentioned the word heavy, only twice in the Quran.
Until one time Allah subhanho wa Taala said
in hula you hit Boonen
where the rule when our or who Mia woman,
these people the kuffaar
this temporary dunya
this quick enjoyment that they get in this dunya
and they have abandoned and they have neglected what is to come. And Allah describes it as a heavy day Yeoman sati.
As for the other time that Allah mentions the word heavy in the Isla eco Cloverland tequila, we will definitely reveal to you a heavy word. And this was in the very beginning of the revelation of the Quran in surah two Muslim men, Allah subhanho wa Taala told the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he will reveal to him something which is very heavy, and that is nothing other than the revelation, the Quran, the words of Allah subhanho wa.
And so my dear brothers and sisters, if you want to be safe, on that heavy day, the day of judgment
then hold fast to the heavy word in this dunya
the Quran hold on to it.
Not just reading it and reciting it, but reflecting over it, making it the central part of our lines, having our lives to revolve around it
and implementing it and acting over its teacher.
Finally, my dear brothers and sisters
We all know of what our brothers and sisters
have been through recently in Palestine, and especially in Gaza.
And so for that reason, Mr. Double Herrera
is working with a charity organization to raise funds for our brothers and sisters who
have much taken away from them. Their homes destroyed their loved ones, either taken away from them, or badly injured. And so our brothers and sisters are in dire need of our support. And so, there's a link available for all of you on the screen right now. And so I encourage each and every single one of us to not hesitate to support our brothers and sisters in this time of need. We ask Allah subhanho Medina to alleviate their suffering. We ask Allah subhana who went to Anna to heal those who have been injured to bring back to bring back their lives back to normal? We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to have mercy upon their loved ones. We ask Allah subhana wa Tada
We ask Allah subhanahu wa Tada to protect each and every single one of them. We ask Allah subhana junta Anna to protect us and them as well.
