lagoon way overfilled lagoon lugar con woman up Hi, la hora Sula, who

00:01:30--> 00:01:30

died.

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

My dear brothers and sisters.

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

We as an oma.

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

Today, our problem is not

00:01:45--> 00:01:49

that we don't know the solution to our problems.

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

But rather, we have full knowledge

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

of the solution to all of our problems.

00:02:00--> 00:02:10

But rather, our issue is not identifying the solution, but rather implementing it.

00:02:11--> 00:02:14

And so our example

00:02:16--> 00:02:23

is like that of a sick person. He goes to the doctor, and the doctor prescribes the medicine.

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

And he explains him how to use it.

00:02:27--> 00:02:32

He tells him this is your daily dosage. He gives him the message, he gives him the medicine.

00:02:34--> 00:02:44

And he takes it home. And he even reads the instructions given the medicine, providing every detail that he needs to know about this medicine and its usage.

00:02:45--> 00:02:55

But then, when he takes the medicine, he doesn't bother implementing what he learned from the doctor and from the instructions.

00:02:57--> 00:03:02

And so he doesn't care about how he uses it. He misses his dosage.

00:03:03--> 00:03:06

He takes it however he wants

00:03:08--> 00:03:14

and he doesn't bother implementing what he needs to implement.

00:03:15--> 00:03:31

And so my dear brothers and sisters, likewise, is the seat of our oma today. We all know that the solution to all of our problems is in returning back to the book of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:03:32--> 00:03:35

Returning back to the book of Allah subhana wa Tada.

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

But the question is, how many of us

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

how many of us

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

have made the Quran

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

a central part of our lives today?

00:03:53--> 00:04:13

Not only reciting it, not only reading it, but pondering over understanding what Allah subhanho wa Taala has said in it. And then above all, acting by it, implementing it in our lives. And so my dear brothers and sisters AS Roma Yvonne came to an end

00:04:15--> 00:04:19

there were those of us who actually

00:04:21--> 00:04:22

took our time

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

to reading the Quran in the month of Ramadan.

00:04:30--> 00:04:37

Those of us who did so once Ramadan came to an end, we took that mustache and we took dapper and and put it back on the shelf.

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

And for many of us,

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

we will return back to it

00:04:44--> 00:04:51

until the next Ramadan. This is if we opened the Quran in the month of Ramadan.

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

Otherwise the vast majority of Muslims Today,

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

many of them they don't even bother opening the door.

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

I'm in the month of Ramadan.

00:05:02--> 00:05:03

And so today we live

00:05:05--> 00:05:15

in unprecedented times where the oma has never been so far from the Quran, as it is today. And this is something

00:05:16--> 00:05:23

that the enemies of Islam, they recognized. They recognized a very long time ago.

00:05:24--> 00:05:28

And so when they colonize many Muslim lands

00:05:30--> 00:05:34

and they tried their utmost best

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

to revert Muslims from their deem

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

through physical force they were unable to

00:05:45--> 00:05:52

and they recognized that the only way that we can make Muslims to leave their Deen

00:05:53--> 00:06:08

is by detaching them from this book from the Quran from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so my dear brothers and sisters, we have some serious reality checking to do, how many?

00:06:09--> 00:06:12

How much time have we given

00:06:13--> 00:06:14

to the Quran?

00:06:15--> 00:06:18

Not only reading it not only reciting it.

00:06:19--> 00:06:27

How many of us have revolved Looker and have revolved our lives around the book of Allah subhanahu Adana.

00:06:29--> 00:06:30

Many of us we complain

00:06:35--> 00:06:41

that Arabic is not our mother tongue. But how many of us have made an effort

00:06:43--> 00:06:45

have made a determined effort

00:06:46--> 00:06:51

to try to read the Quran to learn how to read it.

00:06:52--> 00:07:10

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

00:07:12--> 00:07:41

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 their time and their 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.

00:07:44--> 00:07:49

But the question is how many of us have even bothered to put that effort into it?

00:07:52--> 00:07:56

In the month of Ramadan, many of us we finished the entire prayer.

00:08:00--> 00:08:03

And then once Ramadan is over, we struggle.

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

We struggle with the Quran.

00:08:08--> 00:08:10

It will Kodama rahima he says

00:08:11--> 00:08:19

it is mcru. He says it is disliked to delay finishing your recitation of the Quran

00:08:21--> 00:08:22

beyond 40 days.

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

And then Ian reputed to be

00:08:27--> 00:08:43

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.

00:08:46--> 00:08:48

But forget about even 40 days.

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

Many of us struggle

00:08:53--> 00:08:56

to finish the Quran in even a year.

00:08:58--> 00:09:02

And so my dear brothers and sisters, today we witnessed

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

a neglect of the Quran.

00:09:07--> 00:09:14

A neglect of it, abandoning it, turning away from it. like never before

00:09:15--> 00:09:17

reciting the Quran

00:09:18--> 00:09:32

has been replaced with our phones and social media. We spend hours upon hours going through the various messages the posts

00:09:35--> 00:09:38

but we can even spend a single hour with the hora

00:09:40--> 00:09:50

listening to the Quran has been replaced by listening to music to dub or reflecting over the Quran has been replaced

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

with video games, putting our energy and our intellect into that instead of putting it into

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Trying to reflect over the meanings of the hora

00:10:07--> 00:10:08

instead of the Quran.

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

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 operand to be for certain occasions on the death of an individual

00:10:29--> 00:10:36

reciting the Quran at that time, and then giving its reward to the dead without realizing

00:10:37--> 00:10:55

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

00:10:56--> 00:11:05

as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in a meta lemma ethany Allahu be he mean alhuda him? Can I tell you why he didn't also

00:11:07--> 00:11:14

that this guidance and this knowledge that Allah has sent me when this Quran is like

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

it is like

00:11:17--> 00:11:27

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.

00:11:28--> 00:11:28

And so

00:11:31--> 00:11:39

it revives the hearts it gives life to the hearts and just like it gives life to the hearts.

00:11:41--> 00:11:42

It also gives us the light

00:11:44--> 00:11:51

by which we are guided in this life. And so if you find your life to be dark,

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

if you find your life to be dark,

00:11:56--> 00:12:41

then it is because you have turned away from the source of light. And that is a book of Allah subhanahu wa tada for Allah subhanho wa Taala described it throughout the Quran as being light. What ends in LA come from Medina that we reveal to you a clear light. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about those who turn away from his remembering the Quran. Woman out although I'm victory for inilah he in Allahumma, Isha tanganga, one shoe Yeoman Tiana Tiana, those who turn away from my remembrance the Koran, then for them is a wretched, a depressive life

00:12:42--> 00:12:46

and they will be reserved on the Day of Judgment.

00:12:48--> 00:12:50

They will be raised up on the Day of Judgment

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

being blind

00:12:53--> 00:13:10

What tequila in the law house or the room the matter on the room.

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

My dear brothers and sisters

00:14:16--> 00:14:20

1400 years ago when the Quran was revealed

00:14:21--> 00:14:24

to our Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

And he took it

00:14:27--> 00:14:32

and he recited it to his people. And he preached it and he taught it to them.

00:14:35--> 00:14:41

The vast majority of them did not only reject it did not only disbelieve in it

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

but they turned away from it.

00:14:47--> 00:14:56

Running away from it, bolting fleeing whenever it was mentioned as Allah subhana wa tada tells us in the

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

from Allah humanity. Thank you

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

altimari when

00:15:02--> 00:15:06

What is wrong with them turning away from the remembering the foreign

00:15:08--> 00:15:13

car and home showroom Mustang feel for rottman qaswarah

00:15:15--> 00:15:16

like

00:15:18--> 00:15:20

wild donkeys,

00:15:21--> 00:15:28

prays that bulls that flee that run away, when,

00:15:29--> 00:15:37

when they hear when they sense a predator when they sent a hunter, ready to attack them.

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

That's what this is how they treated.

00:15:44--> 00:15:45

And this is why

00:15:46--> 00:15:48

they would advise one another,

00:15:49--> 00:15:51

to stay away from this brand

00:15:53--> 00:15:58

to block their ears, when a newcomer would come to Macau, they would warn them

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

they would warn them from this Quran. Why? Because they knew of the impact that the Quran had

00:16:08--> 00:16:14

on the hearts as long as there was nothing preventing the hearts

00:16:16--> 00:16:18

from hearing this message,

00:16:19--> 00:16:35

from stubbornness from the Hawa of the neffs, from the warnings of these kuffar and these enemies of Islam, as long as as a pure clean heart comes and listens to that message of the Quran, it will accept it right away.

00:16:36--> 00:16:37

And so they recognize that

00:16:39--> 00:16:40

and this is what made them

00:16:42--> 00:16:44

to flee from this.

00:16:46--> 00:16:47

And this is why

00:16:48--> 00:16:53

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam finally had enough of it

00:16:54--> 00:16:57

and meet his complaint to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:16:59--> 00:17:03

And whenever a prophet or a messenger complains to Allah,

00:17:04--> 00:17:22

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 subhana wa tada about something about their people, a loss of Hannah who had to hide or would hasten the punishment.

00:17:23--> 00:17:26

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam complained,

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

walk on Rasool E.

00:17:30--> 00:17:37

What on earth was Julio rugby in komeito, who had a locker room

00:17:38--> 00:17:40

and the messenger he said,

00:17:41--> 00:18:04

he, oh, my Lord, the messenger, he refers to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my people, they have taken this as an 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.

00:18:07--> 00:18:08

And so although

00:18:09--> 00:18:12

this area was revealed, describing

00:18:14--> 00:18:32

the Prophet salallahu ad he was sending them and his complaint about his people crush. 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,

00:18:33--> 00:18:40

who abandons the Quran? neglects the Quran doesn't have any place for the Quran in his life.

00:18:42--> 00:18:43

Ignore him.

00:18:44--> 00:18:46

Rahim Allah he says.

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

He says that 100 of the

00:18:51--> 00:19:12

neglect of the Quran abandoning the Quran is of various types. The first is to abandon listening to it, abandon believing in it like right, like the kuffaar of Mecca, who did not want to even listen to it and did not believe in

00:19:13--> 00:19:16

set. Secondly, he says neglecting,

00:19:17--> 00:19:19

abandoning acting by

00:19:20--> 00:19:32

not stopping at its halaal any term, even if a person says he believes in it, and he reads it, but he does not implement it in his life. Thirdly,

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

neglecting judging by it, making it it making it the judge between us in matters pertaining to the OSU of the dean the fundamentals of the dean, 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 has been

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

from Allah.

00:20:02--> 00:20:18

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 four three,

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

abandoning neglecting to dub borovets

00:20:25--> 00:21:13

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 deaf seed of the Quran, say 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 idea that he has revealed. Fifth, we

00:21:15--> 00:21:30

neglecting and abandoning using the Quran for treatment for the diseases of the hearts, rather looking for treatment, looking for treatment from other places.

00:21:31--> 00:22:12

And so even after you he concludes, and he says all of this, all of this comes under Allah subhanho wa Taala statement or call or Rasulullah Robbie in ohmmeter how to handle Quran amadora that complaint that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu it was in the made when he said yeah, Rob, my people have taken this grand in neglect, and have abandoned it. And then finally ignore 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

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

let us not forget

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

that in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:22:22--> 00:22:31

he used the word filthy Len heavy, two times and two times only.

00:22:33--> 00:22:40

Let us ponder over this. Allah subhanho wa Taala had mentioned the word heavy, only twice in the

00:22:43--> 00:22:46

end until one time it was a parent who attalla said

00:22:47--> 00:22:48

in

00:22:49--> 00:22:50

a boon and it

00:22:52--> 00:22:55

was a rune awara whom he omen for

00:22:56--> 00:22:58

these people the kuffaar

00:22:59--> 00:23:00

they love

00:23:02--> 00:23:02

this

00:23:03--> 00:23:06

temporary dounia

00:23:07--> 00:23:11

this quick enjoyment that they get in this dunya.

00:23:12--> 00:23:23

And they have abandoned and they have neglected what is to come. And the Lord describes it as a heavy day Yeoman Sati.

00:23:24--> 00:23:56

As for the other time that alumnae mentions the word heavy in certain rupee, 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

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

the words of a loss of Hannah who went to hell.

00:24:00--> 00:24:10

And so my dear brothers and sisters, if you want to be safe, on that Heavy D, the Day of Judgment

00:24:11--> 00:24:16

then hold fast to the heavy word in this dunya.

00:24:18--> 00:24:25

To hold on to it. Not just reading it and reciting it, but reflecting over

00:24:26--> 00:24:33

making it the central part of our lines, having our lives revolve around it

00:24:34--> 00:24:38

and implementing it and acting over its teaching.

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

Finally, my dear brothers and sisters

00:24:45--> 00:24:48

we all know of what our brothers and sisters

00:24:49--> 00:24:55

have been through recently in Palestine, and especially in Alaska.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

And so for that reason, Mr. debu

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

Iran

00:25:02--> 00:25:11

is working with a charity organization to raise funds for our brothers and sisters who

00:25:12--> 00:26:12

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 is 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 wa Taala to alleviate their suffering. We ask Allah Subhana who would Dinah 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 subhanho wa Taala

00:26:13--> 00:26:48

We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect each and every single one of them. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to protect us and has also lower salema Rafi ma como la Alana buco Mohammed bin Abdullah, crema Moroccan vida de Caro, Cora bukom, Jen Luffy, Rudra, Prakash, Colin Karima.
