alameen wa salatu salam ala shadowfell ambia evil mursalin wa ala Ali he was happy as rain bad.
My dear brothers and sisters and elders Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Let me begin by wishing you Ramadan Kareem in advance inshallah, in the next maybe 24 hours, maybe maybe 36 hours, we should be in Ramadan, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep us healthy and alive and well, so that we can meet Ramadan in a good state and to give us the ability and itovi to take full advantage of this
annual reign of mercy that comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala and this month.
Today I want to talk to you about the
the rights of Al Gore and Al Karim, the rights of Al Quran Al Karim, because Ramadan is the month of the Quran, on the Luffy Hill for analysts Mandela service and on the Quran in this month and therefore it is important for us to know what are the rights of the kurama Viola. I'm saying rights because we are answerable for rights. If you do not fulfill the rights of somebody or something, then you are doing Gollum in Arabic The word golang is to put something in a place where it does not belong. For example, to put your feet on the table is on the table even though the table is a inanimate thing, but it is a column to put your feet on the table because the table is not meant for
your feet. So similarly if we do not fulfill the rights of the column of Allah subhanaw taala then this is the column on the column of Allah and therefore it is very important for us to ensure that we do not fall into this trap of Golem There are six rites of the Quran Al Karim, and we will look at them one by one. The reason I want to start today is because in anticipation for the season of Ramadan, any intelligent person who is engaged in any activity prepares for a season of goodness a season of plenty. For example, if a farmer before the rains come, the farmer plows his land he makes irrigation channels and so on and so forth, when there is still no rain, but he is doing that in
preparation for the rain which he knows will come a farmer who does not do that the rain comes anyway. But if there is no irrigation generally the land has not been plowed and so on the water will just flow away and be wasted and will not benefit the farmer even though the rain has come in its correct time.
Similarly a shopkeeper buys his supplies and buys his goods and articles which he sells well before the high season that he expects whatever time of the year where he expects to make the maximum sale, he stocks up. If he does not do that, and if he waits until the season starts, then the chances are that by the time he is able to stock up, the season is over and he will be left with unsold inventory on his hands. Similarly for us, it is very important for us to mentally and physically prepare ourselves for the season of the Ramadan Allah subhanho wa Taala the mouth of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the time when Allah subhanaw taala frees people from the Hellfire It is very important
for us to prepare ourselves mentally and physically for that season. So that we can take full advantage of the season. And for that, we will talk about this in more detail in different domains. But today we will look at the most important part of this month of Ramadan which is Al Quran military. And as I said there are six rites of the Quran which are for us to fulfill.
I will list them and then we will look at each of them in some detail.
The first one is that we believe in the Quran Al Karim and we will see what is the meaning of believe in the Quran that we believe in the Quran number two that we honor the Koran. Number three that we read the Quran number four that we understand the Quran, number five that we practice the Quran in our lives. And number six that we propagate it and we take the message of the Quran to the people of the world. So these are the six rights of the Kalam of Allah Allah Allah.
The first right of the Quran Al Karim is that we believe in it.
And that we believe in it not any way we please not any way we understand by whatever we think believe means, but we believe in it in the way that Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his Sahaba believed in it. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned this specific
If you really believe in it as the people have believed, um you know, come on us and us who are on us in this in this ayah does I have also lies
to the first right of the Quran is that we believe in it in the way that Rasul Allah is Allah solemn, and is believed in it, that we believe every word, every idea, every order, every hook on every promise, every Bashara every way that every admonition and warning, every description, every story and every lesson, without any hesitation or doubt whether or not we understand the how of it. Our belief is belief without saying, how does it happen?
So this is the foundational foundation of Islam that we believe in the Kalam of Allah subhanho wa Taala every word every I every order, every promise every warning and admonition, every description, every story, every lesson, without any hesitation or doubt whether or not we understand the how of it. We don't believe in the Quran blindly. Let me make this point very clear. I mentioned this also last Juma. We do not believe blindly our faith is not blind our faith is with understanding. Now you might say we just now said believe in it, whether you understand or not, but you are now you're saying faith is with understanding how is it we understand who the hokum comes from, we understand
who the order comes from, even if we don't necessarily understand how it happens. Dial Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala is above any example that may be given of him. But this is exactly how we believe in the word of any expert in this world. You go to the doctor, the doctor says, do this, don't do that. Otherwise, you will become history. Do you understand exactly why that must happen? Do you understand exactly how it happens when you are eating some very good and you know, Hyderabadi biryani how it that thing ends up in the in the insides of your veins For God's sake? I mean, you know, is Gollum on the Windsor? You it could be any Why doesn't it just go away
somewhere instead of quoting all the insights? Right? Do you exactly understand how this process happens? You don't but don't tell me any of you has any lack of faith in
in the coating of the weights? No. The doctor tells you you got 95% block, you say Bismillah Allahu Akbar, please start. Right. Do you say well, you know, excuse me, I don't understand how what do you mean 95% block? You don't argue because you believe in the knowledge of the experts. So your belief is not blind. You can't say have blind faith of the doctor, you don't have blind faith. You believe that this doctor knows what he's talking about. Therefore, you say I don't necessarily have to understand every how and why of that thing. That is why I'm going to an expert.
As I said, we don't give examples of Allah, Allah Allah, but just for us to understand. So therefore when somebody says I believe in in the Hakama of Allah, I believe in the story of the Quran. I believe in what Allah subhanaw taala has said, even if I don't understand it, is that person's faith blind? No. He doesn't understand maybe some part of that story. For example, if he reads the story of the calf, do you know exactly how somebody can be sleeping for 300 years?
No, but you believe in it? Absolutely. If you don't believe in it, you have exited Islam, please understand it very clearly.
If you do not believe in it, you have exited Islam. So of course we believe in it. Now why do we believe in it even though we don't understand how it happened because Allah subhanho wa Taala said so for the Muslim that is the Lille a well, that is the biggest delille that can ever be that Allah subhanho wa Taala said so there is no other delille beyond this.
So that is the belief in the column of Allah subhanahu wa taala. My brothers and sisters,
I remind myself when you that we don't believe in the Quran blindly, but with the understanding that it is the actual word of Allah, we have to understand is very clearly it is the actual speech of Allah. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala speaking it is his column his speech, it is not a created thing. It is one of the sefa Allah tala one of his attributes. He spoke to us and we are listening, it will intercede for us in the grave, and on the Day of Judgment. It is the greatest of honors that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent it to us and allowed us to read it and to recite it and we thank him for it.
Allah subhanaw taala spoke about his column and about its effect on those who understand it.
Let us examine ourselves and see if these things happen to us. Ramadan comes to us
enable us to reflect and see where we are going in life and to correct our lives so that we will not need to regret when we meet our rub. The meeting with our rub is yet in the meeting with our rubbish Huck
and we don't want to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala in a state where we have to feel sorry where we have to regret where we have to say that I wish I had done this or that
I remind myself when you that this may be our last Ramadan May Allah give you long lives and May Allah give you many many many Ramadan's to come but we don't know this
and I remind myself that this might be my last Ramadan
so let us
make this the best Ramadan of our lives and ensure that we gain the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala because we may not get another chance if we get another chance Alhamdulillah but if we don't get another chance we don't want to stand before Alliance oh I wish I had done this. Oh I wish I had done a caffeine Ramadan. Oh I wish I had read so much of foreign oh I wish I had done my I had you know, pray taraweeh and stayed with the Imam till the end and not disappeared midway.
Irrespective of that he will look at all of those things. inshallah.
I remind myself when you that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned the effect of his column, just reflect on this and see Allah subhanaw taala Why does he have to mention the effect of his Kalam by giving a very powerful example? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala Why do we give examples of anything we give examples to draw attention to something important?
And that is why I was reminded that in the famous I had those rodenhiser where Allah subhanaw taala said Allah will honor rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, lo de la Quran Allah Giovanni la righto Hashimoto Satya Hashimoto sodium encarsia Tila wattle columns aloe vera Mohali naskila Lumia tuffa carone, Allah subhanaw taala gave this example we all know the ayah had we send down this Koran or a mountain you would surely have seen it humbling itself and rendering asunder exploiting turning into dust by the fear of alarming J Dilla. Such are the examples which we put forward to mankind so that they may reflect
Allah subhanaw taala then mentioned the effect of the Quran, on the bodies and hearts of those who listen to it. I want you to seriously I remind myself I remind you to seriously reflect on these if and to watch for these, the changes which Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning physiological changes and internal mental and spiritual changes, emotional changes, do we experience this when we read the Quran or not?
Allah subhanaw taala saying this is what happens to people who read my column.
So should we not reflect? When I am reading this column of Allah is it happening to me?
Please, let us let us approach the Kalam of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a way that befits its majesty and grace.
It's very sad that we unfortunately there is a major problem with the way we teach the Quran huge problem, I don't want to go into the details of all that inshallah as and when we will talk about that. Make dua if Allah subhanaw taala wills and the standard bearers Academy gets established, which is what we are working for. inshallah, we'll turn all of this upside down on its head and we teach the Quran inshallah and the way that it should be taught.
We teach the Quran like a mechanical thing, like some mantra, you just memorize, just read something and go away. And that's it and there is no focus. There's no focus on the student.
Let me tell you, let me show you and decide for you what Allah subhanaw taala said, and then ask yourself this question. When you were reading the Quran with your staff. I'm not I'm not denigrating any of the authorities. I'm just saying this is a major issue. We have to look at the issue.
When you were in the hips class, or when you were reading the Quran, did eurostyle ever stop you and say, you just read this ayah? Tell me what did it do to your heart?
Does anyone ever ask this question? Have you ever heard of anyone asking this question? Do you stop in the middle of the door and say, you just remember I tell me what has this done to your heart? Is there anything what is happening inside you?
There was a time there was a time and this is how the Sahaba learned this is how they learned. I am not this I haven't invented this is not rocket science. This is how are an Al Karim was taught.
But unfortunately, among the many other things we forgot, we forgot this also.
And there's a big big tragic result of that which is
That we have the Golem of Allah subhanaw taala in our tongues and it does not go beyond our below our throats doesn't do anything to us.
Our hearts are still filled with fear.
Our lives are filled, still filled with our with our lives are still empty of the Baraka of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is not supposed to happen.
But it happens because we have no connection with the kingdom of Allah. This month of Ramadan comes I'm not saying this for us to sell flagellate and beat ourselves up No, I'm saying this to draw my attention your attention to the fact that the month of Ramadan comes to correct all of these things. So Allah subhanaw taala said
about the effect of the Quran on the bodies and the hearts see what else matter is it
out we live in a shaytani r Rajim femen sha Allah who sobre holies la me for hawala Nori Mira be Fabiola la casa de colo boom in the karela una casa de la la la movie in a la horas de la Hassan el Hadi kita Mortazavi, Hamada Nia tuck Sharia Roman who Daksha Romain Oh lady and I have showed araba home
delino YOLO the home Apolo Mila De La La Liga, whoa de la Hiya, Habibi, my
mama you lil mama who mean?
Allah subhanaw taala in Surah zamar. Allah mention is he whose breast who's just whose heart, Allah subhanho wa Taala has opened to Islam, so that he is in the light from his rub equal to or like a non Muslim. So woe to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of Allah. They are in pure, plain error that Allah mubin Allah has sent down the best statement. As an Al Hadith. Allah has sent down the best statement, a book this poor iron, it's parts resembling each other in goodness and truth, often repeated, and then Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning specific conditions. The skins of those who fear their rub Shiva from it when they're excited to hear it.
That this happened to us. Is there any change in the skin? Do your hair stand on end? Allah saying it happens. The skins of those who fear their rub Shiva from it when there is it or hear it, then their skin and their heart soften to the remembrance of Allah
to very clearly described conditions I remind myself and you
reflect when you listen to the Quran when you read the Quran, reflect inside yourself and say what is happening to my heart?
Allah subhanaw taala also mentioned the effect of the Quran on the heart, where Allah subhanaw taala said enamal Menon Allah de de leeuw Kira Allahu wa Jalla kulu whom ye that Julia de la Maya to Hosea tomie mana wanna be here at our cologne? Allah Subhana Allah said the momineen are people who when they
look here, Allahu wa Jalla kulu boom and the seeker of Allah subhanho wa Taala comes before them, when they hear the seeker of Allah when they see the signs of Allah, their hearts shiver with the fear and majesty of Allah subhana
wa julietta he Maya Hosanna to me mana and when the Ayat of Allah subhanaw taala recited before then the demon increases and as a result of these two things, what happens what Allah Robbie him here to work alone and that is how they have our Quran Allah they have faith on Allah subhanho wa Taala they rely on Allah subhana wa jal and nobody else today one of our what is the cause of fear, the cause of fear is lack of tawakkol How does the work will happen? The work will cannot happen if you do not recognize Allah.
How do we recognize that life is not some magic formula, you don't have to go and sit in a cave and do something. You recognize Allah subhanaw taala by reading his column.
My brothers and sisters I remind you and myself to reflect on the Quran, use this month of Ramadan to the best
of the best way that we can use it. Allah subhanaw taala then mentioned what not to do with the Quran.
He warned us against trying to seek hidden meanings and trying to invent philosophies to explain things in terms of our miniscule and very limited understanding.
This is one of the traps and interestingly is one of the traps of the intellectual demons oma
They don't understand a basic foundational principle which is Allah knows more than me. So if I say, Allah knows that is a good answer.
That's a good answer. As I explained to you earlier, we don't give examples of Allah.
But if somebody tells you, you are eating this medicine, why is it because the doctor said this? Nobody will say you are a fool. How come you don't understand why it is? Nobody said that? Because they accept this as a good answer. Yes. The doctor told me, I don't have to know exactly why he told me this because I trust the doctor, he's an expert.
So how can I say Allah subhanaw taala knows best allow alum, this is not a good answer, it is the best answer that you can give.
But then for some people, it is not enough. So what do they do? They are now trying to try to invent and they try to concoct philosophies.
And there's a big problem with some with many of these things.
And that is one of the traps. I am not saying that one must not explain the ayat of the Quran with with the within, quote, scientific discoveries. One can do that. But keep this in mind. It's it's a, there is a there is a trap also in that, for example, somebody says the Quran mentions the Big Bang Theory.
People you've heard this before, and people have mentioned this big bang theory.
First and foremost, does the Quran actually mentioned the big bang theory? No.
The Quran mentioned something which we relate to the Big Bang Theory and we say this is what the Quran mentioned. So first of all, this interpretation itself is wrong. It's against the rule of thumb, first of all, second point is
who was there to see the Big Bang?
The guy who wrote the theory, was he there at the time? No, it's a theory. It's somebody who's conjecture somebody conceptualized something. Maybe he's right, maybe he's wrong. So now we are pro propagating Islam by saying people you know what you should believe in the Quran is the word of Allah because the Big Bang Theory is mentioned in the Quran.
that somebody now comes up with a theory which makes this big bang theory he completely destroys it and he says this theory is completely false. So now what do you do with the Quran?
Because you have been saying all these while the Quran is true because of Big Bang, now is a big bang is false. Therefore, what about the Quran?
So don't fall into this trap. There's no need Allah the column of Allah Alhamdulillah is sufficient for us. No need to invent and I am just mentioned one, there are many such things that float around in the atmosphere of the confused thinking of intellectuals. Don't fall into that trap.
Right. So Allah subhanaw taala told us what not to do with the Kalam of Allah.
Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala mention who are lesbians Allah Allah Al Kitab amin who tomakomai Tom Horne now Makita Whoa, whoa, Mutasa. We had family NaVi Polo beam z one via una Mata Java Minho, with Evo I'll fit in a
min hobo TiVo. I'll fit in a diva diva Evo wheelie he won. Mo da Vila whoa illallah wa Chico NaVi lil me up una de colo manera in the Europe Bina, why am I a sucker will will help
Allah subhanaw taala said, It is He Allah subhanho wa Taala who has sent down to you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the book this for an in it there are Ayah which are mahkumat which are entirely clear and they are the foundations of the book. And this refers to all the ACA and the variety and the Hadoop and so on.
But Ohara Mutasa, behat Allah does it and there are others, which are not entirely clear. And then Allah says so as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation.
As for those in whose hearts there is a disease, a deviation from the truth, they follow that which is not entirely clear seeking fitna they are looking for trouble and seeking for hidden meanings, but none knows the hidden meanings in law law, except Allah subhanho wa Taala and those who are firmly grounded in knowledge, they say we believe in it, the whole of it.
Columbo coloman in the law, we believe that everything in it is from Allah, the clear and the unclear, are from our rubber and none receive admonition and warning except people of understanding and this is this obsidian debris.
So seeking hidden meanings, you know, running around here and they're trying for this and that all of this is not from the
way that the Quran should be approached.
We believe in the Kalam of Allah, everything and all of it, we believe that this is the actual speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala we believe that this
is not a created thing. And we believe in it completely and totally that our which we understand and that which we don't.
For example, if you look at the horrible mikata at you know, olive lamea seed and so on so forth, media and so, I mean, Kava inside all of these beautiful mocha that the meaning of it is known only to Allah subhanaw taala. But there are many people who try to ascribe meanings to this.
And there are many people who try to tell you read Kava, and swag to 75 times and then followed by hominem and then finish with the acid and this will happen to you and you will grow hands in your head or something Allah Allah knows better. All of these concocted was give us a must have a recipe book of this, putting that the huddle of what a level playing games with the Kalam of Allah.
This is not from the actions of the Muslims.
Anyone who tells you all these formulas throw him and the formula out of the window safest bet
the second write of the Quran and we will inshallah do this by in in installments next year and so on, so don't get too alarmed. I'm only on the second out of six. We'll finish with the second inshallah. The second write of the Quran is that we honor it.
That we honor the Quran, the famous Hadees narrated by Marina fondo de Lyonne, who narrated from a pseudo Salam who said the best of you is the one who teaches the Quran and learns it. In another narration, he said use the word instead of why we said oh
teaches it or learns it.
The best of you. The criterion of
honor among the Muslims is how much Quran the person knows.
When they asked him who should we make, the Imam is the one who knows the Quran, who knows the most Koran. And remember, this, of course, applies to a person who's African Quran, but it doesn't necessarily mean somebody who knows the most if it also refers to somebody who understands the Quran and practices the Quran and so on and so forth. That's the
that's the meaning that the llama have taken over the years is a very beautiful, very, very nice Hadith about this little boy who wants to be the mod when he narrated later on in a daddy's, but the time that he's talking about he must have been about maybe seven or eight years old.
So he said that, my Camila you used to live outside of Makkah. And every time somebody came out from Makkah, people used to stop by our by our tribe by our Kabbalah. And new people used to ask them what is Mohammed saying Salalah salah and these people used to recite the Quran What does it say it is that the Quran, so anyone comes from a cage, this ad has been revealed and that has been revealed, and they would recite Koran. And this little boy said that I memorized all of this. Now imagine he's sitting there in the in the Muslims, he is not officially part of the madness. He's just hanging out with his dad or whatever. And he is listening to what people are saying, This is
what Mohamed Salah Salaam said, and he memorized it and so on, so on. He said after a couple of years, my father who was the head of the tribe, he said he went to Makkah, and he accepted Islam, and he came back and all the tribes accepted Islam at his hand. So he said when my father was with risala, and he accepted Islam, he asked me sir, now what should I do? So I told him establish Salah.
So he said, Who should we make the Imam? So he said, make the one who knows the most core and the human?
So he said now and my father came back to the tribe. And he said, Well, who knows the most couldn't guess who it was. This eight year old kid, or seven year old kid, no one no one knew more than me. He remembered the most if so they said, aren't you on the map? So he said I was reading Salah, and he said one day, he said one woman stood up in the back. Women always traveler.
So this woman stood up in the back and she said what kind of mom is this? When he goes into loco we see everything. Because he said there was a tear in the back of my throat. He said I didn't realize the little kid running around or whatnot. He said there was a tear in the back of my tub. And this woman stood up and said what sort of women was just when he goes in ruku he can see everything so he said my father went and bought me a new job and he said I was so happy to get a new job, which I would not have got unless I knew karate said this new job came to me because I knew the most current they wanted me to be the man so they wanted to make sure the man is properly covered. So they got
him a new job. That's a beautiful that's why must read the Sierra. We read this era you fall in love with these people. So Allah, you fall in love with this Abba, you fall in love with them.
Now in today's world, of course not. Don't make a seven year old the man
This is this is for us today it is not not necessary and so on but just want to understand that in a state where there is no other choice, I mean they had it for them it was Aurora. So they did that. But the point is what gives the honor the knowledge of the column of Allah
what gives the honor is the knowledge of Qur'an. So it is
the right of the Quran that we honor it now I always you know people for example, many people they read the Quran and then they put it on the on the ground on the masala now this is against the other of the Quran. It's physically honoring the forearm means what to put it in a high place to not to put it somewhere where your feet are towards it. When you carry the Quran carried you know like this in your in your hand, holding it against your chest, don't carry it like some some book like this or wearing it around in the know. Treat the Quran differently from the way you treat anything else. So within the way you treat any other book. So it's very important for us to physically honor the
People are fans of the Quran
and anytime I am asked to speak at a school I always make this point. I tell the person I say you call yourself half is Quran.
Your people call you the half is of the Quran. When I tell them I said the reality is that the Quran is your half is you are not the half of the hora the Quran is you have is you are not protecting the Quran the Quran is protecting you because that column is going to come in your grave to make shuffles for you on the day of job I mean when you go in the grave, that column of Allah is going to make shuffles for you on the Day of Judgment. It is because you know this column of Allah and you made his Rasul Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will give will give Shabbat for 10 people to the half of the Quran and he will be allowed to pick any 10 people of his choice to go into general.
Now this of course refers to people who have not been relegated to the fire because there were conforama stickied which talks about people who are Muslim but Allah Allah maybe they are not you know, they didn't do what they should have been doing. But for them and other than than this they would have gone into the air via for some time for purification, but Allah subhanaw taala will save them from this insha Allah
and the half is of the Quran and see the beauty of the narration of Rosaura Salaam Rasul Allah is Allah from specifically in this hadith did not say half is of the Quran he said people who are attached to the Quran, he said people have the Quran
and hamdulillah therefore it opens the door for all of us who are also not who for us to have his Koran, but also somebody who reads the Quran regularly who may not memorize the whole thing but he is attached to the Quran he reads it every day he loves the column of Allah insha Allah this person is also in this heavy This is my interpretation May Allah make it right I'm not claiming any
legal status to that interpretation, but inshallah we fought for issues of file we can put anything we want and nothing is beyond his mercy inshallah. So Susana Sallam said on the Day of Judgment, this person who's attached to the Quran, the half of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala will tell him read it like you used to read it in this life. And for every word that he utters, the Quran will raise his data in general.
For every word, Allah will raise his status in the general.
My brothers or sisters, I remind you and myself that the Quran is the only book that Allah subhanaw taala rewards us with an ad for reading it.
If you read it, for example, it's a good thing to do and it's a good deed Allah will give us but there is no
there is no promise of Allah of so many Hashanah, per every letter of Hadith is nothing like this. But with the Quran, the famous hadiza Bala Salaam wa salatu wa sallam said Allah subhanho wa Taala will give 10 has an ad for every letter of the Quran that you read. And he said, I do not say that Alif Lam meme is one letter. He said Elif is one letter, lamb is one letter and meme is another letter, which means that when you when you start reading and you simply say LS la meme 30 has an ad have been written in your book of deeds.
And then say then I'll even have Italia vilano narration from him he said, Allah is Allah Allah Salam when he said this, he meant reading the Koran outside of Salah. He said when you read the Quran in Salah in cm, Allah subhanaw taala gives 100 has an ad for every letter which is recited.
And according to the IMA reading the Koran and hearing and listening to the Quran, attentively is equal therefore.
Now imagine the Hazara that you are getting in when you're standing in taraweeh. It's like a counter
But that happens if the recited is reciting properly and you are listening attentively. It doesn't happen when the recital is reciting.
Please understand that we'll come to that inshallah in detail, but I'm very clear about that.
Allah subhanho wa Taala himself mentioned the glory of His column.
Allah subhanho wa Taala took an oath.
When he mentioned the glory of His column, Allah subhanaw taala said, Follow Cosimo beam Allah.
When who hola Casa malo tala mo na Z m in hula Carano carry m. v kita. Mi macoun.
Leia, mas o.
Mirabella me in
the eyes which I'm very fond of deciding.
Somebody told me why'd you reset it every time I say because Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala said, so I swear I take an oath by the Marathi
by the setting of all by the constellations. And Allah says of the stars as they traverse the heavens. And verily that is indeed a great oath, if you but know that this indeed this column of Allah is indeed an honorable recital, the Holy Quran in a book where is the origin of the Quran Philo Hema, who's in a book with Allah subhanho wa Taala which is well guarded la Yama Sui la Mata Haru, and no one except those who are purified, the mala el makabayan can touch it.
And Allah subhanaw taala says, and this is a revelation, then the Mira bellami, which has been revealed and sent down from Rabbil alameen.
My brothers and sisters, we have to understand that we must honor this column of Allah, because it is something which is highly deserving of honor. We are not doing it a favor. We are only expressing the fact when we honor the Quran, we are honoring ourselves. Please understand, if somebody is disrespectful to his father, is he insulting his father? Or is he insulting himself?
himself, you spit at the sky, it falls in your face.
Simple as that somebody who deserves honor, if you don't give him that honor, you are only demonstrating that you are an ignorant fool.
Nothing else, the honor which the person does he deserves, does not deserve this does not disappear.
Mr. Murali or or chef de la rama I don't know which one of them but one of them said this. He said that a diamond falls in the dust, it still remains valuable, but the dust can rise all the way up to the heaven, it is still has no value.
So honoring the column of Allah, we honor ourselves. So please be very very careful about the column of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala prohibited us from disputing his about his column and these disputes arise because of ignorance. Today, it is the is the fashion on the custom where people say in my opinion, I think this is what it means the hawala hotel Abdullah Hello. azim please be very, very careful. The Tafseer of the Quran is not something that we do with our whims and fancies that have said that please understand what are the rules of Tafseer obviously I have no time here to say all of that now, but let us understand this and let us not play games with this.
I will simply give one example to illustrate how careful we need to be
Allah subhanaw taala in Surah labasa Allah subhanaw taala revealed is this ayah which is a fact he has a BA
so when this is was revealed,
Omar Abdullah Catalano said we understand Hubba which means a new shoot a new growing shoot, but what is up by
faqih how we understand which is fruits and Hubba we understand which is a new growing shoot. But what is a bar because Allah said he had a bar
and then he admonished himself when he said Omar do not speak about something of which you have no knowledge.
Somebody took this ayah to Abu Bakar says you know
if somebody thinks that they have more right to make the fate of the Quran than our said this, then let them make the fear according to their whims and fancies. Somebody went over a serious deal on when they said what is
The meaning of ABA, Allah has revealed this ayah has come with faki hatanaka Aba, what is the meaning of this word ABA? And our currency Dr. delanco said, which earth will give me a place to live? And which sky will shade me and protect me? If I speak about the Quran with my opinion or with something that I do not know?
How is it that we are so brave I don't know why we are so brave Mashallah. You say whatever we want about the Kalam of Allah.
You pick something from here bring something for this is what I think it means the hawala hotel, if anyone had a right to say, this is what my heart tells me, or this is what I think if anyone had a right to say that it was the Sahaba for sola sola Salah
because they were the only generation which heard the Quran directly from the Mubarak tongue of Allah. They were the only generation who prayed behind also Allah salallahu alayhi salam when he was reciting the Quran, they were the only generation which had knowledge of the as Baba newzoo personal experience of observe as Babu
lacell Haruka Marina de la Salam said the cover is not like the minor the The news is not like the experience. We also know as Baba knows all because we read about them, but we were not there at the time. There is a big difference between being there at the time had these gibril narrated by Omar Abdel Fattah. We all know how these derail but Omar Abdel Fattah was sitting there looking at gibril alayhis salaam, with his eyes wearing that white robe on which there was no sign of travel, black hair and beard, no sign of dust, who was seeing that with his own eyes. Me. Omar Abdullah Catalano so when I reside Howdy, Deborah Hill and Omar in Al Khattab recited howdy jabril there is a
difference of the heavens and the earth between these two recitations, even though we are speaking about the same incident, even though we are saying exactly the same thing.
Why? Because Omar Abdel Fattah was there at the time he experienced it whereas I am talking about something which I heard
so if there was anyone in the world who could make this time we will have the Quran it was the Sahaba and I told you what the opposite of the Sahaba what the Imam of the Sahaba What did he say?
I want to close with a very incident which always whenever whenever I remember this incident, it makes my hair stand on end and inshallah we have done two of the six insulin xtrema we will do the other two.
There was a friend of ours in Bangalore of random my wife and myself, who was a classical Hindustani singer. This lady was from the galleon Karana and she used to sing very beautifully. So she was this until the elderly lady when when when I when we met her She must have been in her 60s or late 60s. And she told me a story which is one of the every time I stand and read the Quran whenever I whenever I'm reading Salah. I always think of the story.
The woman was not even Muslim.
She said that she said I'll tell you this, I have a story in odo and then I will also translate it because let the older people get some, you know mother out of this.

After, when I was learning to sing, and I was a bit nine years old. Then my dad one day took me to meet Vega master.

My brother and sister they want to remind myself when you How can you and I stand and recite the column of Allah wrongly before Allah subhanaw taala
Think about this.
We'll come to the issue of reading the column of Allah inshallah, I'll talk to that doctor about that in detail.
