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

Hello Hello Hello hemosol America

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

sisters today's lecture the topic

00:00:12--> 00:00:13

is perhaps

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

the most important

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

thing that we can possibly do.

00:00:23--> 00:00:29

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this month of Ramadan al Karim and Allah subhanho wa Taala said,

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

Shadow Ramadan and levy Zilla Fie hill or an

00:00:35--> 00:00:42

Allah says Ramadan is the month in which a lot of handled Allah revealed and sent down the Quran

00:00:45--> 00:00:53

Let me begin by asking you a question. My question is that if I ask you to name for me three things

00:00:54--> 00:01:03

in order of priority that you need in to succeed in this life, three things in order of priority,

00:01:04--> 00:01:14

three activities, three things, three areas of focus, whatever you want to call it, in order of priority that you need to succeed in this life. What will you say?

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

And what

00:01:18--> 00:01:19

so how did

00:01:21--> 00:01:21

we change

00:01:23--> 00:01:23

our

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

Islam

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

or even Islam?

00:01:29--> 00:01:30

Good,

00:01:31--> 00:01:31

good

00:01:33--> 00:01:33

purpose.

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

I'm gonna

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

do things quickly.

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

I wrote dedication Islam.

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

Anybody?

00:01:52--> 00:01:53

Anybody else quickly?

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

Who thinks I'll be

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

a good one?

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

What does that do that and just

00:02:07--> 00:02:08

I literally

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

got them.

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

In fact,

00:02:21--> 00:02:22

I thought

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

you know,

00:02:35--> 00:02:39

I want you to put yourself in a situation

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

that situation is that there is this

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

15 year old

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

14 or 15 year old boy

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

there are many 1415 year old city has your situation.

00:02:58--> 00:03:02

And this 1415 year old his whole focus is

00:03:04--> 00:03:06

why do people worship idols?

00:03:10--> 00:03:16

So he's talking to his father is saying Why are you worshiping things that can do nothing they can't see they can't hear they can't do anything.

00:03:19--> 00:03:23

He goes into that list where all the items are and he has his conversation with them.

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

His whole focus is

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

in terms of worship, or whether

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

why

00:03:39--> 00:03:42

you're giving safe answers. Somebody said gold somebody said Islam No.

00:03:46--> 00:03:51

If you are if you are true that the number one priority is Islam, then in last

00:03:53--> 00:03:57

24 hours, how much time did you spend on Islam and how much time did you spend on something else?

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

It's not just a matter of simply saying something.

00:04:06--> 00:04:09

number one priority and this 1415 year old boy What am I talking about?

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

Even MLA Salah

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

number one priority is about the Why?

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

Because anything

00:04:22--> 00:04:29

whatever it is, this camera for example, or this light, this chair or this bottle of water,

00:04:30--> 00:04:40

my glasses anything, anything is judged on the basis of fulfilling the purpose for which it is made.

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

Right.

00:04:45--> 00:04:52

If I want to show that I have a lot of money and I make glasses of solid gold instead of plastic, or two gold

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

discs in it.

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

What will you say? so fantastic. Lovely.

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

If I can't see anything, I'm blind with those.

00:05:09--> 00:05:24

The key thing is to understand that anything whether that thing is successful or not successful that whether that thing is worthwhile or not worthwhile depends on fulfilling the purpose for which it was created.

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

Allah subhanaw taala What did he say about the purpose for grading grading us?

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

Omar Calico Jenna valenza hilarya

00:05:36--> 00:05:40

Allah will not created the human being and the gene for anything other than our worship.

00:05:42--> 00:05:47

nothing other than worship. The only thing we were created for is the worship of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:05:49--> 00:05:56

So if you or I are doing anything other than the worship of Allah subhana wa Jalla Jalla Geraldo then we are failures.

00:05:59--> 00:06:03

How is it possible to live your life 24 hours

00:06:05--> 00:06:12

while you are awake while you are sleeping while you are eating while you are running a marathon while you are playing basketball where you are arguing in court.

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

Whatever you're doing,

00:06:20--> 00:06:22

including when you're going to the toilet.

00:06:24--> 00:06:28

When you are cohabitating with your wife or husband

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

How can all of these things we bother

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

because we are starting with the basic premise that anything if it is not a whether it's a failure, anything

00:06:43--> 00:06:48

valuable Allah have not created the gene and the human beings for anything other than a bad

00:06:49--> 00:06:53

little with a gin and ins are doing anything other than Avada

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

they are doing wrong.

00:06:57--> 00:07:01

The committee can see they are not fulfilling the purpose of the creation.

00:07:02--> 00:07:09

How can a lot of analyser give us a goal or give us a task

00:07:10--> 00:07:15

which seems to be by definition, impossible.

00:07:18--> 00:07:29

But what do we know about Allah subhanho della della della rudderless manager, like give us something which cannot be done, and then he's punishing us for it. No, that would be unfair and unjust Allah is not unjust.

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

So how do I make every action of mine into an action? Or rather,

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

how?

00:07:39--> 00:07:44

By doing it according to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu

00:07:46--> 00:07:54

which begins with the needs for which you do the action, why am I Why are you eating your food, so that I will have the strength in order to do about

00:07:56--> 00:08:10

how do I eat my food in a way that also was a result of a good start by saying Bismillah with Allah subhanho wa Taala with the word robot, Allah Subhana, WA tada we finish the vote, we make God

00:08:12--> 00:08:23

then this whole action of eating food, which itself is for our own personal benefit, becomes an action of a bar that becomes an act of worship Allah subhanaw taala rewards you for this.

00:08:27--> 00:08:31

This whole issue is of knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:34--> 00:08:35

You know, when you go to meet somebody,

00:08:37--> 00:08:42

if you go meet somebody who is powerful, who is senior,

00:08:43--> 00:08:58

well, they will already go to meet a scholar, you go to meet the king, you go to meet some, you know, President or somebody or you maybe you go to work in a school, you go to meet the principal, new persons who are meeting the protocol everywhere in the world is

00:09:00--> 00:09:02

that the person of lower status

00:09:04--> 00:09:15

must say who he is. Or if somebody is introducing, they will tell the person of higher status, who the person of lower status is, doesn't work the other way around.

00:09:16--> 00:09:18

They don't take you to the king and they say, Oh, this is the King.

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

You're supposed to know that is the King.

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

They take you to the king and they said this is so and so.

00:09:27--> 00:09:28

May I present to you so and so,

00:09:31--> 00:09:41

is the protocol. The protocol is that the person of higher status does not have to introduce himself he does not have to say who he is. The person the lower status has to say who he is.

00:09:43--> 00:09:46

What do you say however, about Allah subhanaw taala General,

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

about room status is not an issue to talk about.

00:09:52--> 00:09:57

But unless you've anatella broke this protocol. And Allah Subhana Allah introduced himself

00:10:01--> 00:10:02

Unlike

00:10:04--> 00:10:12

Allah subhanaw taala zero $100 bill Allah me Who is that? Our ohana Rahim, Maliki Almighty

00:10:15--> 00:10:20

Allah Himself in idle cozy Allah monitor introduce himself and

00:10:21--> 00:10:33

himself in the last I have I have a source of knowledge and in many places in the Quran many sutras begin with the introduction of all of Africa Tamara Kala de via the book of Allah

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

and so on and so forth

00:10:39--> 00:10:42

because Allah subhanaw taala wants us to have this connection with one

00:10:47--> 00:10:53

another described this in many ways the reason I'm saying this is because we want to build a connection with the Quran

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

so Allah subhanaw taala for example said

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

he told us the story of Emily Sarah

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

is beautiful I love this river.

00:11:04--> 00:11:07

Here is the grammar is around the same 1415 year old time

00:11:09--> 00:11:11

where he's talking to Allah subhana wa.

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

And what is a

00:11:18--> 00:11:21

rugby? refer to heel moda

00:11:24--> 00:11:27

rugby irony, cable TV show me

00:11:29--> 00:11:36

RNA khiva to heel Mota is not asking for an explanation is not simply the guy with his RNA cable to heal mode.

00:11:39--> 00:11:44

To show me how do you resurrect? How do you bring back something after it is dead?

00:11:46--> 00:11:50

And see the response of Allah Subhana Well, that's what I love about that certifier.

00:11:52--> 00:11:53

Allah says hello to me

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

as you don't believe

00:11:59--> 00:12:10

what is it? Hello, Bella, what I can get my knuckle here of course, I believe just for the core of my heart, just for the center of my heart.

00:12:11--> 00:12:19

What is this garbage and deliberately to me like a wooden burrito? Hey, we are in a in a big hybrid

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

because we're gonna tap the pipe

00:12:25--> 00:12:31

and it's a conversation of such closeness and such love between the Afghan in general

00:12:35--> 00:12:46

to Allah subhanaw taala also now, this is the son of Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala when he wants to show something, he shows it in a way which

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

hit you very hard.

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

Unless Rhonda like would have done any number of things right.

00:12:54--> 00:13:04

For example, I'm sure there was some bird or animal around there. Or even Elisa himself was rather I would rather die than get up and Okay, I showed you

00:13:07--> 00:13:11

know, I was ready to go and find orbits,

00:13:12--> 00:13:13

tame them.

00:13:14--> 00:13:20

Then train them that they are free flying, but when you call them they can't do.

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

And then he says

00:13:25--> 00:13:29

catch them, chop them up, back into FEMA.

00:13:30--> 00:13:31

Mix up all that.

00:13:33--> 00:13:46

And then their whole mixture of the mincemeat of four birds make it into four parts. Each part now has the head of one word the tail of some other words you know all of this.

00:13:48--> 00:13:54

And then Allah says now take each of these lumps of minced bird

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

to the top of four mountains.

00:13:59--> 00:14:11

climb that mountain, put this tub there, we'll climb the other mountain put the next one there, climb this mountain and put the other one there and so on for mountain then come down and stand in the middle of these all these four mountains and call them and they will come

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

not only are these parts mixed up, but they are incomplete a bunch that that you know lump of means birth on mountain a doesn't even have all the parts. To make one birder we've got something here and something on the other mountain and so on as well.

00:14:35--> 00:14:46

He is creating a very complex and convoluted and confused condition deliberately to show revivalism is even if things are like this, I can recreate.

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

I don't need these to be simple to prepare.

00:14:52--> 00:14:54

This is the taluka

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

with the aura, so thing we learn is when we read the Quran

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

to reflect on it.

00:15:01--> 00:15:07

Second thing I want you to think about is that the Quran came as the spoken word.

00:15:08--> 00:15:16

We talked about reading the Quran, but the Quran didn't come as a book it didn't come as restaurant didn't come with a piece of paper and you to

00:15:17--> 00:15:18

read this No.

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

You cannot Korra

00:15:22--> 00:15:25

means read, means also resides.

00:15:27--> 00:15:31

Read means something you are seeing but recite me you don't have to see no reciting is

00:15:34--> 00:15:38

without seeing. So the Quran came as the spoken word

00:15:39--> 00:15:50

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam heard the Quran gibberella salam heard the Quran Surah Surah Salaam heard the Quran then he resided it and the Sahaba heard the Quran.

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

The Quran was written down much later.

00:15:57--> 00:16:00

But the Sahaba heard the Quran from masala

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

and it affected their heart.

00:16:06--> 00:16:12

This is the power of sound it's the power of listening it is the power of the language.

00:16:13--> 00:16:20

It affected the heart. That's the reason why we keep saying be careful about what you hear. We care for what what you listen to.

00:16:21--> 00:16:24

Don't listen to haram stuff because it will affect your heart.

00:16:26--> 00:16:27

It will kill your heart

00:16:30--> 00:16:46

listen to good things, don't listen to evil things because they will affect your heart. The Quran came as the the spoken word which affected the heart. Now for something to affect the heart it obviously means that it must be understood.

00:16:48--> 00:16:50

It was not understood. How does it affect that?

00:16:53--> 00:17:24

I understand I mean I agree and accept that some tune can affect you can affect the art and the dude has the words in it. So I thought it was an understanding that you just the sound itself has some effect, but real effect which moves the heart which forces you to think which changes your life. This can only come when you understand that so the question to ask ourselves is that if I'm not understanding the Quran, how do I expect it to affect what I

00:17:26--> 00:17:36

affect my life? Take for example a very small idol of Allah does it Yeah, you will yah yah, yah yah levena Amano, Lima Hakuna Matata Allah.

00:17:40--> 00:17:45

Allah does it all you will believe Why do you say that which you do not do?

00:17:47--> 00:17:54

So obviously, what must you do? Unless they walk your talk? If you are saying something, do that. Don't say something and do something else.

00:17:56--> 00:18:09

Now if you take somebody and say that he is a man or woman who does not understand anything, they have no idea about the rest of the Quran. They just know this one piece, that I must do what I say I must live by my word.

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

What kind of life do you think they will have?

00:18:15--> 00:18:19

Will they ever will it? Will they ever tell a lie? Will they ever deceive anybody?

00:18:22--> 00:18:27

We cannot know. Because if they are living by the standard to say I must do what I say.

00:18:30--> 00:18:36

Just that understanding of that one little piece of the ayah can change your life completely.

00:18:38--> 00:18:41

Another ayatollahs Raja Raja Alam yallambie, Allahu Allah

00:18:43--> 00:18:47

azza wa jal, Allah subhanaw taala is it? Does he not know that Allah is watching?

00:18:49--> 00:19:20

Me Allah, Allah does not know that Allah is watching. Now think about this again and say that here is a person who does not understand anything in the world. You only understand this one piece that Allah subhanaw taala is watching me all the time. And Allah Allah say, don't you know I'm watching which means what? I must ensure that I never do something with displeases Allah subhanho wa Taala because he's watching me live that person does not do anything at all, using a person who understands just this one piece Allah Allah, Allah, do you think this person can ever do anything wrong?

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

Oh,

00:19:23--> 00:19:36

you can never do anything wrong. He can never lie. You can never cheat. He can never abuse anybody. He can never, you know, curves, they can't do anything wrong. Because he's consciously and constantly aware that Allah Subhana Allah is watching.

00:19:37--> 00:19:39

This is the power of the Quran.

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

The power of understanding.

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

Now third point

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

the Quran is organized in a very beautiful way.

00:19:50--> 00:19:52

There are three kinds of ads in the forum.

00:19:53--> 00:19:53

There are

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

relating to the hype to the unperceivable

00:20:01--> 00:20:01

term babies,

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

you know mistranslated as unseen.

00:20:06--> 00:20:18

But something because something is unseen. It doesn't mean it's not perceivable I mean something if you can't see something or even hear it or you can feel it and they always have you can have instruments by which you can measure it and so on and so forth.

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

Ripe is the unperceivable something which cannot be perceived by any of our senses, by any of our tools, and also something which cannot be perceived today, but which can never be perceived ever.

00:20:34--> 00:20:47

That is a lifetime thing where you can say, for example, you might say, Well, you know, today, for example, there is one theory which says that, every sounds spoken, every sound made, remains in the atmosphere of the Earth,

00:20:49--> 00:21:04

every sound so if at some point in time, if somebody invents a gadget, which can capture the sounds which are floating around in the atmosphere, then you can actually hear the speech of somebody who died 1000 years ago.

00:21:06--> 00:21:12

Well, as was gonna cause us to live in a time when we can hear the recitation of our soldiers or our inshallah

00:21:13--> 00:21:24

So, it is not available today, but theoretically, it is possible. So today, the sound of his voice is the right but it may not necessarily be there all the time it tomorrow, you know, we might be able to hear it

00:21:26--> 00:21:36

means something which is not only unperceivable today, but we can never be perceived, no matter how far Science Advances and no matter whatever.

00:21:38--> 00:21:41

There are, if, for example, Jonathan himself,

00:21:42--> 00:22:05

we know about Allah what Allah has told us, but nobody can see a lot of anatella nobody can until Allah decrees that we see him and we ask Allah, Allah for this, we are of himself insha Allah when we meet on the Day of Judgment, but until then, Allah is not visible to any human being directly or indirectly.

00:22:06--> 00:22:16

Jana Johanna Johanna unperceivable until Allah makes it possible, the Day of Judgment unperceivable and so on and so forth. So, there is the Quran which refer to the

00:22:19--> 00:22:22

second set of eyes to the Quran referred to

00:22:23--> 00:22:41

our world present world what we see is which relate to human beings engine, which relate to us by telling us about ourselves by giving us instructions. So, there are the acaba fellows run into the orders, rules and regulations and so on and so forth. So, there are all of these set of eyes

00:22:42--> 00:22:47

and is a third set of Ayah which referred to people of the past.

00:22:48--> 00:22:53

Right now, I don't call them stories because a story can be true or false

00:22:56--> 00:23:02

these are histories these are actual things which happened in order to we have to work visa Kahani visa vaca

00:23:03--> 00:23:07

Canada was a key for DACA was okay, but

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

it has actually happened, this is a

00:23:13--> 00:23:28

it's something which history, so, three sets of those relating to the ripe those relating to the present meaning not just present meaning 2019 present meaning this world which we see and so on and relate that a third set of eyes, which is

00:23:29--> 00:23:36

the past as in the histories of the people now, think about that, why is this for an organized like this, what is the reason

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

I am a corporate consultant as you know.

00:23:42--> 00:23:43

And

00:23:44--> 00:23:46

which means I advise organizations advise companies

00:23:48--> 00:23:54

in organization structure redesign in succession planning in productivity and so on. And

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

so, in my consulting line,

00:23:59--> 00:24:01

if I want to go and advise a company,

00:24:02--> 00:24:03

I have to do three things.

00:24:05--> 00:24:08

First thing I have to do is I have to establish my own credibility.

00:24:10--> 00:24:13

Some young chap wrote to me and said, I want to be a controller as a good luck,

00:24:14--> 00:24:18

what must I do? I said, find somebody who will pay you to talk to you

00:24:19--> 00:24:20

whatever.

00:24:23--> 00:24:32

So, the first thing that any consultant needs to establish is his or her own credibility, the basic question in my mind is in the mind of the client is what am I supposed to do?

00:24:34--> 00:24:40

How do I know that you are worth listening to? How do I know that you are going to tell me anything worthwhile.

00:24:43--> 00:24:52

So first thing is establish credibility. Second thing is to give a concept here is what I think you should do with your organization.

00:24:54--> 00:24:55

Here's the concept.

00:24:56--> 00:24:58

Build it like this, do this do that.

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

So now

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

The client will use you the client trust you, the client is impressed with you

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

the client is listening to your concept

00:25:11--> 00:25:13

but there is a third step what is that?

00:25:14--> 00:25:17

third step is the question how do I know this will work?

00:25:19--> 00:25:27

What is the proof of concept you go you give me the concept I'm willing to listen to you because I trust you, but what is the proof of concept? How do I know it'll work

00:25:29--> 00:25:32

proof of concept is established by history

00:25:33--> 00:25:39

history either a pilot project or history I can say okay, here is six sigma as a quality

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

method.

00:25:43--> 00:25:50

So, please implement Six Sigma in your organization, I have a Six Sigma Black Belt Six Sigma consulted, I can teach you how to do that.

00:25:51--> 00:26:14

So, you are impressed with me I can teach you six sigma, but you say you know what, this sounds good, but this also is very rigorous and it requires a lot of measurement and so on and so forth. How do I know it works? Because you're telling me that it improves my productivity it improves my profitability and so on. How do I know that as you look at GE look at Motorola

00:26:15--> 00:26:51

This is the history he started Six Sigma in 1995 they committed $500 million to that project and then in 2005 years time these were the results in 2010 legal results and so on Motorola start before that, this was the result of Motorola and so on. So right. So, effectively consulting consists of a three step process, establish your credibility, show the concept, what change Do you want to implement, and show how you proof of concept? How do I know it works? Now this is exactly how the Quran is organized.

00:26:54--> 00:26:55

This is how the Quran is organized.

00:26:57--> 00:27:11

First, establish credibility. Who is Allah? What is this color thing about I always tell people before you sit down to read when you are holding the most of in your hand when you hold in your hand. Just sit there ask the simple question What is this thing in my head?

00:27:13--> 00:27:14

What I did

00:27:17--> 00:27:19

when you're saying column Allah, what does it mean?

00:27:23--> 00:27:27

And when I say mean, I don't mean a translation of color means which row inside here?

00:27:30--> 00:27:39

Inside here, what does this mean as a column of Allah? What does this mean to me inside? Does it do anything to me just just to think that this is not

00:27:40--> 00:27:44

from somebody from Krypton talking to me, it is not somebody from Venus talking to me.

00:27:46--> 00:27:55

This is the Creator of the heavens and the earth and all it contains all that I know and all that I don't know. Allah subhanho wa Jalla Jalla wa Navarro

00:27:57--> 00:27:59

who said about himself a

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

whole whole lot more had a love Ahmed lumea lead Well, um, you lead wollombi ecologo. One had, this is Allah.

00:28:13--> 00:28:14

This thing about that.

00:28:16--> 00:28:27

So when we read the ad, or the Koran, which are relating to the web, let them come into the heart, and let the heart feel that power and glory and majesty

00:28:29--> 00:28:31

and say Allah, Allah, you are this law.

00:28:36--> 00:28:39

And therefore, then what happens when we do that

00:28:41--> 00:28:42

you become

00:28:43--> 00:28:56

amenable to and you become encouraged to obey laws. So you say that this is my Rob della delallo telling me something about how to make my life successful. Why would I not listen to that?

00:28:58--> 00:29:08

The third set of eyes has to do with the stories of the past to say do I know this thing works? Yes, it I know it works. Here are these people who did that here are these people who ignored it?

00:29:09--> 00:29:15

What happened to those who were successful and what happened to those who are not? Because the world has both

00:29:19--> 00:29:23

the stories of people who are successful and it has stories of people who are unsuccessful.

00:29:25--> 00:29:30

Very interesting. If you look at those stories musasa was successful or unsuccessful.

00:29:32--> 00:29:32

Success.

00:29:34--> 00:29:35

What What is resources?

00:29:37--> 00:29:38

Zero.

00:29:40--> 00:29:41

How much money did you have?

00:29:43--> 00:29:47

Nothing. What how much political authority power area? Nothing.

00:29:49--> 00:29:52

Have a strength Did you ever know but I was wrong. It was one man

00:29:54--> 00:29:57

and his opponent his counterpart was who

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

rameses the fourth

00:30:02--> 00:30:02

Pharaoh of Egypt,

00:30:06--> 00:30:07

upper and lower Nile

00:30:11--> 00:30:14

How much money did you have? the wealthiest Kingdom

00:30:16--> 00:30:18

of that time in the world.

00:30:21--> 00:30:25

You go to Egypt visa and see the pyramids there.

00:30:26--> 00:30:29

The Great Pyramid there is like a mountain.

00:30:30--> 00:30:31

That's a to

00:30:33--> 00:30:37

think about that if the room is like that, what must be the balance of that man?

00:30:43--> 00:30:47

But in the fight between your hour and Moosa one.

00:30:49--> 00:30:50

Oh, sorry, sir.

00:30:52--> 00:30:53

Sorry, sir.

00:30:54--> 00:30:56

I remember the

00:30:58--> 00:31:00

Six Day War between Israel and

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

as well as happened at that time Egypt.

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

So the 60 that

00:31:08--> 00:31:22

somebody gave to Russia, and Russia's around Talalay, and desert people call me not just water was in a particular area, but just one Valley. Or most likely this is going to happen on this particular day,

00:31:23--> 00:31:25

between Israel and the Arabs.

00:31:27--> 00:31:28

And then the man said

00:31:30--> 00:31:39

that Gamal Abdel Nasser was the president of Egypt at that time. He's addressed the nation he addressed the troops, Egyptian army.

00:31:41--> 00:31:43

And he said, nanohub, now around,

00:31:44--> 00:31:45

he said, We are the sons of Pharaoh,

00:31:47--> 00:31:52

that we come from an ancient civilization. None of you know that we are the sons of Rome.

00:31:54--> 00:31:58

And it so happened that the day of the war was the other war was young people,

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

which is the Jewish holiday.

00:32:01--> 00:32:03

And the Jews fast on that day.

00:32:06--> 00:32:07

They passed on that did

00:32:08--> 00:32:14

the following the Torah, the fasting on that day and they say we are the people of musasa.

00:32:17--> 00:32:21

So this wasn't for my please make dua for the victory of Muslims.

00:32:22--> 00:32:24

I still remember noticias. Allah said

00:32:26--> 00:32:26

his name

00:32:29--> 00:32:30

he said was Israeli do you think?

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

He said the Israelis will win.

00:32:36--> 00:32:45

Some people they said how the war hasn't even happened. Nothing has happened. We are only talking about it. How would you make a statement like this to say Israel will win.

00:32:47--> 00:32:50

A new Joseph says what is so difficult is Gaviscon.

00:32:51--> 00:32:54

The moves are Fira de la vamos a Jetta

00:33:00--> 00:33:02

he's the most out of Iran with abroad. I have to say he

00:33:03--> 00:33:08

he said if there is a fight between Musa and Iran and Moses doing very well the question of

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

what is doubt what's doubtful about that?

00:33:14--> 00:33:21

Here are the Muslims calling around. And they are the Jews was saying we are the people are Muslim. No.

00:33:22--> 00:33:29

foregone conclusion as history is, is witness. One air raid they wiped out the entire Air Force of Egypt.

00:33:33--> 00:33:37

So this is what the Quran does, it teaches us to

00:33:38--> 00:33:39

obey Allah subhanaw taala.

00:33:41--> 00:33:46

And it reinforces that by the stories that we hear, so that the,

00:33:49--> 00:33:54

the love of Allah subhanaw taala comes into the heart, and then we are encouraged to

00:33:56--> 00:33:59

read and to understand and to obey.

00:34:02--> 00:34:08

The issue of reading and understanding is very, very important. It is very important to

00:34:10--> 00:34:22

learn how to read well. And by how to read well, I'm not talking about the tune of the recitation, I'm talking about the Druid of the restoration. Many times the hora make this mistake

00:34:23--> 00:34:31

where in the in trying to, you know, read in a nice way they forget the rules of the game.

00:34:32--> 00:34:35

One of the most common things people do is that they elongate

00:34:37--> 00:34:38

where there is no mud.

00:34:40--> 00:34:50

That's a mistake. It's a major mistake in sometimes in some cases the meaning changes. For example, the word says Carlo. Carlo means he said

00:34:52--> 00:34:54

but indecision visa Carlo

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

may sound nice, but now the meaning has changed because

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Have you elongate that? It means they said

00:35:06--> 00:35:09

hollow and hollow, the meaning has changed.

00:35:12--> 00:35:23

So as we know the Quran is the method of pronunciation of the Quran which is very, very critical to learn and to follow when we are reciting.

00:35:25--> 00:35:36

The meaning does not change everywhere, but in many cases the meaning can change depending on what happens when you are especially if you are reciting in Salah depending on how the meaning change your Salah can become invalid

00:35:37--> 00:35:40

you will have to either correct it or you don't correct it

00:35:43--> 00:35:44

was very important to do that.

00:35:45--> 00:35:51

How did nationalism reside? Especially in Salah surah Salim used to reside

00:35:53--> 00:35:59

there are many many stories about this incident Rosina. I'm not gonna do it much of your time, but a couple of them.

00:36:01--> 00:36:13

One of the qualities of the recitation also Salaam was that he always responded to the Quran. So if Allah subhanaw taala asks a question I wish I could say something there.

00:36:15--> 00:36:26

If Allah subhanaw taala if it's an IV, if it was an iron which was the Bashara of Jenna, the glory of Allah if it was on the glory of Allah Subhana Allah,

00:36:27--> 00:36:53

if it was a an ayah of the blessings of Allah Rasool Allah mostrar presentation and he would thank Allah subhanaw taala he would make the law or law give us these then he would continue the stage, if it was an AI as of right of the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala is of janome and so on, Nebuchadnezzar would drop the recitation and then he would ask for forgiveness and he would ask protection from the fire of Jana.

00:36:54--> 00:36:56

Even today on the left there are

00:36:58--> 00:37:18

Arab hora there is shaker COVID, Casa hit in valia in Judah, in the masjid there who research like this, there are other people also because they understand the Quran so they when they are residing, and they're reading, they read in this way, which is you know, where they are responding to the cannibal.

00:37:20--> 00:37:31

So where they are, when they respond to the Quran. This is a way of understanding the Quran and the Quran is a live thing. It's the column of Allah subhanaw taala for example, Allah subhanaw taala in one place, Allah says fine.

00:37:36--> 00:37:38

So what is the what must you do?

00:37:40--> 00:37:43

It's a question of fine as a bone. So where are you going?

00:37:45--> 00:37:46

So what must you do?

00:37:47--> 00:37:48

What do we do?

00:37:50--> 00:37:52

We say that we just repeat the question fine.

00:37:55--> 00:37:58

How can they How can repetition of the question we answered lupus?

00:38:01--> 00:38:04

Allah does FRB IE Allah europei Kumar to katiba.

00:38:06--> 00:38:11

Which of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala Will you be will deny.

00:38:13--> 00:38:14

So, what must happen?

00:38:16--> 00:38:17

It is not it is an answer.

00:38:22--> 00:38:24

I mentioned his story many times before.

00:38:25--> 00:38:35

And many of you have heard it but some new faces are here. As well as as Alan was once reciting, he recited the whole of Serato Raman to a group of sahab

00:38:36--> 00:38:37

and listen to that.

00:38:38--> 00:38:42

What's more beautiful than listening to the recitation of the Quran

00:38:44--> 00:38:45

in the voice of the one who received the hora

00:38:48--> 00:38:52

So, he decided the opposite of Rama.

00:38:53--> 00:38:54

Saba, listen.

00:38:56--> 00:38:57

This at the

00:38:58--> 00:39:01

end when the resolution finished as soon as I asked them, are you not going to say anything?

00:39:03--> 00:39:07

Is it yours? Well, what can we say? While Allah is Allah subhanaw taala has mercy and blessing on us.

00:39:08--> 00:39:11

We heard this beautiful surah and we heard it in your voice.

00:39:13--> 00:39:15

We are thankful to Allah dollars went into what what is your visa?

00:39:17--> 00:39:20

Visa Sam said I decided the same surah to a group of Jin.

00:39:21--> 00:39:29

And every time I said for V Allah Europe the Puma Toka v1, they said lavish a minimum European because it

00:39:30--> 00:39:33

is a law which I am in Amethi European and because

00:39:34--> 00:39:43

every time I said this which of the Blessings of the of Allah will you both meaning gentlemen, deny this at all I we do not deny any of your blessings

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

of Allah we do not deny any of your blessings

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

are better than you because they're responding to the question and they are responding. I'm not saying that when you are listening to that surah in Salah you will say this from you know, standing behind that and especially the man or the story that he

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

Think it's a gene saying it has suddenly disappeared somewhere Oh.

00:40:05--> 00:40:14

But at least in your heart, when you are deciding on your own this Allah subhanaw taala talking to do that, Allah. Allah says in

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

university that he says that, you know, when he was a young boys would practice also at home to try to practice this. When I was a young boy, I had this rule that I could not leave the house in the morning until I finished reciting a certain part of the Quran. It was one Jews or two Jews or whatever it was. So he said that until I finished the recitation, I was not allowed to go.

00:40:41--> 00:40:45

So he said, I would sit and recite and my father would be walking up and up.

00:40:46--> 00:40:57

The father, the father listening to the recitation, that is that he would practice. Do it in your home. Make your children do that. Use it and decide let them hear you. Make them recite you listen to them.

00:40:58--> 00:41:06

He said one day my father was going up and down, I was reciting them my father suddenly stopped and he said this column will not affect you until

00:41:07--> 00:41:09

it comes into your heart.

00:41:10--> 00:41:12

He said his column casa,

00:41:13--> 00:41:16

yoga pa column wide open, as you know

00:41:18--> 00:41:23

is that the effect this color will not affect you until it is revealed to you in your heart.

00:41:24--> 00:41:33

that it does not mean that the device is coming to you. No. It means that you must feel the glory and majesty and magnificence almost no curriculum in your heart.

00:41:34--> 00:41:49

And that cannot happen unless we understand that we do learn the language of the Quran. The Quran is the thick the Quran, Allah gave different miracles for different ambia my miracle is zokora.

00:41:51--> 00:41:52

And what's so special about that?

00:41:54--> 00:41:55

What's special is, among other things,

00:41:57--> 00:42:08

that the miracles of the MBR label Salam ended either they ended with Gambia with the NaVi or they ended even before that. Take for example the staff of Booz Allen

00:42:11--> 00:42:22

it did two things one is when he threw it on the ground it became a sick and the other time was when he struck the water the water part what do you think every every time the thing fell on the ground? It becomes a

00:42:24--> 00:42:37

habit once or a couple of times in the story using every time musallam strap hit the water What do you think it happened to be struck the water? What does that mean? What does it happen?

00:42:39--> 00:42:50

What has parted because of the fact that it was not a miracle staff had no power by itself it was the hook owners rather than using it to show his own coda

00:42:52--> 00:43:00

so the miracles of profits were for them and they ended with them. Is that is that I'm you made a bird out of clay the bird flu.

00:43:01--> 00:43:05

We didn't convert into a business well, I keep on making chickens and selling them or something. Oh.

00:43:07--> 00:43:09

So the point is that

00:43:10--> 00:43:18

with the ambia the miracle then it with them with natural salam, his miracle carries on and will carry on until the day when Allah

00:43:20--> 00:43:21

and that is the foreign key.

00:43:23--> 00:43:26

It's an ongoing miracle of Allah subhanaw taala there's no ending to the Quran.

00:43:28--> 00:43:37

Even when we do hotma Quran for example, at the end on 29 July with the lighter so when we say What a miracle it is, is the is the dam it is not happy man.

00:43:40--> 00:43:51

You're not finishing up the horror No, this door is ending. And that's the reason why even if you would have seen the door does not simply end result and as we read the first I have

00:43:52--> 00:44:03

to also to indicate that the Kalam of Allah does not close does not end This is an ongoing journey it continues and that is why I was rather asked us to ask him for a dinner rather with Turkey.

00:44:06--> 00:44:09

Now finally, I want to end with a couple of stories about the Quran.

00:44:11--> 00:44:13

There were some people among the Sahaba

00:44:14--> 00:44:32

all this have allowed the Quran they all decided the Quran zone but like in any other thing some people Excel some people among the Sahaba who excelled in the Quran in the recitation of the Quran and in being close to the Quran, to such an extent that they came to be called the Friends of the Quran.

00:44:35--> 00:44:44

Now one of those stories that Misha Salaam, entered matches and Avi along with him where his two companions have worked out a number of Ilan Omar.

00:44:45--> 00:44:47

And they heard recitation

00:44:48--> 00:44:50

of the Quran. This top

00:44:51--> 00:44:58

Who was it? It was Abdullah nimasa LaRue. And he was brave enough it and he was reciting aloud.

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

You can do that.

00:45:03--> 00:45:13

So as soon as I sort of stood and he listened, and his two companions also stood and listened to him, and said to them, if you want to listen to the Quran,

00:45:14--> 00:45:22

in the purity and beauty of how it was revealed, then listen to the recitation of a blue light muscle.

00:45:23--> 00:45:36

He said that, if you want to listen to the aura, and you want to experience that for the recitation, the purity and beauty of that, then listen to the recitation of Abdullah ma also.

00:45:37--> 00:45:40

I said this, and then they went away.

00:45:43--> 00:45:51

He was in grocery Salah villages, Allah when he was getting the module seven out of the linoleum running.

00:45:52--> 00:46:19

He said, You know, I want to give you some good news. So what's that? He said, we were here with rasulillah salam. And he heard your recitation. And he said to us, a worker and I were here or the law. He said, he heard your recitation. And he said, if you want to hear the Quran, in the purity and beauty of how it was designed, how it was revealed, then listen to the recitation of Abdullah muscle. I want to give you the good news.

00:46:20--> 00:46:27

Abdullah Solanas wildernesses. Thank you so much for this good news. But our caragana was here before he when he told me this

00:46:31--> 00:46:33

point I want you to note is apart from anything as

00:46:35--> 00:46:39

the Sahaba were so keen to give good news to each other.

00:46:42--> 00:46:57

Today, we are in a state where if somebody says something bad about you, then somebody will go to all the trouble in the world to come and find you and tell you this evil thing that also said is bad. But somebody can say I can talk all the good in the world about you, nobody will bother to inform you. I think

00:46:59--> 00:47:18

we need to change many things amongst ourselves. Another time. There's another side we have lusatia alano us from Yemen. And I was I was again in the masjid. He was also residing. He was praying and he was reading aloud. And he had a feeling that somebody is standing dead.

00:47:20--> 00:47:25

But he was alive. So he didn't turn around. When he finishes I turned around who was running behind him as soon as

00:47:27--> 00:47:34

there was an alarm heard and he said to him, he blustery me, gave me a job for him. And he said, You are so beautiful. I love listening to you.

00:47:36--> 00:47:36

I was

00:47:37--> 00:47:40

alive, I only knew that you were listening I would have made it even more.

00:47:45--> 00:47:46

Another one who was

00:47:47--> 00:48:05

among the people who was known as among the Friends of the of the hora was also a bit of a lot. He was a very savvy. So it was a builder there and also was one of these people called me and called the Friends of Chrono history guru. He came to me one day, just before

00:48:06--> 00:48:09

I had a very strange experience. What happened.

00:48:10--> 00:48:36

He said, You know, I was camped outside of Medina, and my horse was tight. I had other doors close to me. And he said, my small son was lying down. And I was praying, I was doing good. And I was heading around, I suddenly saw a cloud descent. And in this cloud were lights and the lights are flashing.

00:48:38--> 00:48:51

When the cloud came close, my horse panicked and my horse started jumping up and down and so on. So I was afraid that the horse will you know, break it rope and run away or maybe injure my child or something. So I stopped the reservation, which is the cloud cloud rose up.

00:48:53--> 00:48:56

Then I started wizard again, the cloud comes down.

00:48:57--> 00:49:00

This happened a couple of times, I don't know what is this?

00:49:01--> 00:49:10

That's what was said that was the melodica who came to listen to your recitation. And if you had continued to reside, the people of Medina would have seen them alive.

00:49:15--> 00:49:20

The Malaika came to listen to your message. Then I was gonna ask you what were you reciting? Which

00:49:22--> 00:49:23

is it as well as Oh, crap.

00:49:29--> 00:49:30

final

00:49:31--> 00:49:32

story

00:49:33--> 00:49:40

before I end is that of a bad Bishop of Illinois? Who was the

00:49:43--> 00:49:49

brother the unsavory brother of America? Bella, who is America, the son of?

00:49:51--> 00:49:52

So my Viola Juana.

00:49:56--> 00:49:57

And of course, yeah, Cerro de la

00:49:59--> 00:49:59

raza

00:50:00--> 00:50:06

Yes, sir. Yes, sir. What a lawyer which challenges are there? That I know? I told you? Yes. No.

00:50:09--> 00:50:15

You must know this. See, I'll tell you what the in Islam. Why do you call for example, think about his visa salvo Salah he

00:50:17--> 00:50:20

was a pious predecessors.

00:50:21--> 00:50:22

How are they open decisis?

00:50:24--> 00:50:33

You're not Arabic. They were all most of the world majority. They were Arab, some African people there. There was one version? Yeah.

00:50:36--> 00:50:46

There are a couple of other than that, not to my knowledge, there's not a single Indian there never no Hyderabadi. So how are they your previous biases, previous bias criticism?

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

Because in Islam,

00:50:51--> 00:51:03

the line edge is according to the dean. It's not according to Nestle, it's not according to you know, your bloodlines and genetics.

00:51:04--> 00:51:06

Who is my elder, my elder in Islam.

00:51:08--> 00:51:13

And the law because of Islam, we have an is worth, we have a connection with the best of people

00:51:16--> 00:51:30

who have this habit of resources because of Islam. So I'm not being the answer. And about being Bishop or villano. And these were two brothers. There is an Sorry, brother.

00:51:31--> 00:51:46

Mr. vinyasa was the logic and about the bishop was the daddy. Now there was a Syria, there was a expedition that had gone into the nuts. When you get to somewhere look at the map of Saudi Arabia.

00:51:47--> 00:51:56

See where Hijazi we say we'll see where the NIH is and see where that is where you know, we are then that area is nice.

00:51:58--> 00:51:59

So

00:52:00--> 00:52:17

this expedition are gone there. And they there was a there was supposed to be a fight with a particular tribe, they all run away. So there was nobody there when they went there. And so they were on the way back. They camped in the right in one place.

00:52:19--> 00:52:28

And they decided that they said okay, somebody has to be on guard. So these two are given the job. These two brothers about division. Mr. vinius.

00:52:30--> 00:52:40

Mr. Nasser was tired Sabbath visitor to use sleep the first half and then I will wake you up and then you can take the next

00:52:41--> 00:52:44

half as be the guy with a god.

00:52:46--> 00:52:48

What is he doing now? he is.

00:52:49--> 00:52:56

He's awake, he is looking, you know, watching but this is the beauty of the Sahaba they never wasted any time.

00:52:58--> 00:53:02

So what does he do? What is about vision or the Lando do what does he do when he is now he's got

00:53:03--> 00:53:07

no activity to be done? What does he do? He standards Allah.

00:53:08--> 00:53:09

He's praying.

00:53:10--> 00:53:23

This is another good habit to inculcate that when you are you know, jobless, then don't spend your time stuck in the hole or some nonsense, Whatsapp or rubbish. Nick beaker

00:53:25--> 00:53:35

is one last one La la la la la la la la whatever. Right. Best of the liquor is to say, la masala Xena Mohammed in Valeri Mamata masala Dalai

00:53:37--> 00:53:40

Lama Baraka Kala mahamadou mama Guevara,

00:53:43--> 00:53:54

who's Ibrahim which is the best of Vicar, because this is the weather this is sending salah and he said that anyone who sent Allah does allow only one time Allah will sense Allah says that I want that person 10 times

00:53:58--> 00:54:01

to make this habit, Robin beshara villano is running in his brain.

00:54:03--> 00:54:18

At that time, there was one of the enemy scouts who was in that way and he saw that this is people are sleeping this one God is there and God seems to be praying. So he shot an arrow at about the invasion of Iran.

00:54:20--> 00:54:41

Obviously, our vision of the Lana was they were wearing chainmail or something because if you look at what an arrow can do without chainmail you would have been dead. Simple as that. So but because he was wearing them when he was he didn't die but he was injured badly because if you go and look up some YouTube videos on adelante

00:54:42--> 00:54:43

so this one he shot an arrow.

00:54:45--> 00:54:53

About vision now his injured is bleeding. He continues his ally continues to recite for on demand shoots the second arrow

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

above the visual now is even more grievously injured. He continues to say that

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

What's the third arrow?

00:55:03--> 00:55:03

Right

00:55:05--> 00:55:20

then about inhibition rhodiola and who goes into Roku and goes into pseudos and that is his brother Amar. Amar wakes up he sees him with his condition he gets up he looks around so that that scout the enemy was shooting there was

00:55:23--> 00:55:29

so many by the villages Araya then they you know use Amar vinyasa Ilana was

00:55:30--> 00:55:34

helping him and dressing his wound. He said Why didn't you wake me up?

00:55:36--> 00:55:48

Is it what is why did you just receive this arrow after arrow and only when you are now weak with blood loss? You are? Why didn't you wake me up? He said I did not want to interrupt the recitation.

00:55:50--> 00:55:55

I was why want to finish whatever he said. He said What were you reciting? He just wanted to come.

00:55:59--> 00:56:05

relief is that in Salah? You're playing with your beard and you're playing with this and you're describing here and grasping there?

00:56:07--> 00:56:09

Which arrows are eating us?

00:56:10--> 00:56:13

Because there is no dialogue. We don't understand the Quran.

00:56:14--> 00:56:15

People come for therapy.

00:56:16--> 00:56:22

After eight regard, you're tired. You won't go into great rhetoric. Why would I have died? Who's saying is that?

00:56:23--> 00:56:26

somebody whose bicep is bigger than my thigh?

00:56:29--> 00:56:31

right he's pumping iron all day doesn't get tired.

00:56:32--> 00:56:34

But he's turning his Li gets tired.

00:56:36--> 00:56:39

Who gets tired somebody who's going and playing basketball?

00:56:40--> 00:56:46

football you got this? You know midnight thing? He goes and plays football all night? He doesn't get tired

00:56:48--> 00:56:50

but to stand into Gaza he gets tired

00:56:51--> 00:56:52

Why

00:56:53--> 00:57:01

would you don't understand is no connection with Allah subhanaw taala you're doing their job okay? Ramzan either we always used to say this.

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

From da da

00:57:05--> 00:57:07

da Baraka Baraka, Mr. Boo.

00:57:08--> 00:57:10

pinata in the open I

00:57:12--> 00:57:24

really heavy I think we need to get serious without it. As I began with what was the first question? What do we need to be successful? What do what is the first essential for success? What is that other?

00:57:25--> 00:57:31

We need to get serious with Java. And we can get that way by connecting with a column called

00:57:32--> 00:57:49

Ask us monitor to give us COVID. And the ability to connect with this column, as well as monitor to give us the ability to learn is column four is going to affect us in our hearts and for it to change our lives and to bring our lives on the path of hammertoes
